How to survive a summoning ( buck naked ) 101.

I mean, Morgan is wearing NOTHING but the sky.....and a sentient lace puffball scrubby. For those of you who want confirmation that Skyclad is worth the read, let me be simple.

- It is.
- Why the hell are you still here?
-Oh, a wiseguy, eh? You want me to point out what makes it worth your time? Well then, sit down, shut up and let me tell you why YOU are going to read it.


Now, there are SOOOOO many things wrong with a story where the MC gets her powers from being nude, but i just can't bring myself to care about any of them. Skyclad just might be the first of it's kind, and i reccomend you read it before a few knockoffs come around and spoil the experience.

 

Story:

The image of an iron, soap-filled bathtub falling out of the sky and crushing an entire nest of [Giant Eagle Chicks] will forever be imprinted in my mind. And that's only the second chapter. Storywise, the beginning has SOME similarities to Randidly, but is better done. So, far, its been both a very good serious story and a barrel of laughs.

While we have Morgan ( and her lace scrubby ) tromping through one of the largest, and most dangerous forests in the world, the singular side chapter has given much appreciated perspective as to events happening about the world. I was also quite satisfied with the System, as it provided an interesting read in itself for both casuals and number crunchers. On another note, the usual 'Class Selection' was handled in a VERY unique and satisfying way. Kudos to that. ( I'd like to see some other stories try and rip that off ).

So far, there is a picture painted of a grim world, where humans aren't exactly on the top of the food chain. While limited so far, the monster selection and naming has been good. Tyrannorabbits and Electric eel hydras, anyone? Pass me the charred Shadowlands Lynx, if you would.

Style:

Ah, now we get to this. I usually don't have much to say about Styles, but this one more than gets the job done. It doesn't just vividly paint pictures in your mind, the author's use of wry humor at the right moments injects some lightheartedness and humor into other wise grim situations. The prose and wording flows smoothly, giving you a delectable read.


Grammar:

Nothing so here, people, move along. Yes, yes, its perfectly done, i assure you. Take it up with my lawyers if you want to disagree.

Characters:

So far, a cast of three. Well, more or less the MC, her lace scrubby, and Rella, a side character. But, even with those small numbers, it is surpringly strong. The characters make an impression from their very first meetings with the reader, and only build from there. They're people, they screw up, they do things. They aren't paper cutouts, devices to advance the plot or souless machine moving from one stain to the next, eager to obliterate it. ( Well, maybe Lulu. But hey, isn't that the purpose of it's life? ).

The point is, the characters are great. So, UNLIKE Randidler, the MC isn't an introverted sociopath. Yay. We can actually cheer for Morgan here. And maybe imagine ogling her too. Just for lulz. Before she hands our asses to us.


Conclusion:

A good idea transformed into a great story. I don't know why this isn't Top 100 YET, but it deserves that spot. Keep on trucking.

A great story in the making

Have enjoyed this story so far. MC is following a very original path which is a breath of fresh air. Also as world building is my favorite this story gets a A+. You can tell that the author has already planned out the story in advance, which almost always is better then flying by the seat of your pants.

Solid world building, funny and well written?

I love how everything is so far, I found the premise of a naked female lost in a system game world attractive. Ok the way she power up is funny, but it's worth it. It change from the OP female I read about, this one struggle.

Completely worthwhile.

 

Humour with a reasonably competent protagonist. Doesn't hurt that the writing is in my preferred style. loved the endish bits of chapter 4. Thought it added just the right touch.

 

Dear Author please keep on keeping on, you rock.

So from reading the description I thought this story would be a dumb reverse harem or whatever (female MC who has to be naked all the time? REALLY?) but I was very pleasantly surprised after giving it a chance.  The grammar is very good and the world and characters are well fleshed out.  Plus it seems like the author has at least a general idea for where the story is going. Hopefully this continues and doesn't devolve into endless sex scenes or whatever.

 

Keep up the good work!

Heavy on plot convenience

The world feels artificial, as if it is just there to facilitate the plot rather than a living place that the story occurs in. To move the plot forward the story relies very heavily on random encounters, prophecy, and stupid choices that conveniently work out. Every new chapter is rife with "okay, I guess that's a thing that can happen?"s and "did anything the character do really matter?"s. 

The characters feel more real but every decision they make is presented as being inevitable or unavoidable. The lack of agency tends to erode the reader's investment.

This story is well worth a read, it's actually a relatively new take on the usual tropes and I cant wait to read more.

I was initially into it for light isekai fun with a bit of a sexy twist, when chapter seven hit I got HOOKED. Jumped in the bath and read for hours! Have absolutely no gripes about it! Even the silly mascot animal got a real epic moment! Also an absolutely fascinating take on the whole System thing- goddamn dat class selection!
