The Perks of Immortality
This story will no longer be updated.
After living decades and dying hundreds of times, Kegan has learned that he has finally passed some test that the cruel spirit had given him. Now, Kegan has the ability to gain “perks” that can make his life much easier. He is looking forward to finally having an easy life with the new perks he has earned.
Rules to keep me honest for the perk system:
I want to avoid one of the pitfalls I see for other LitRPG stories where the game elements barely relate to the story, or offer very little information. If people are skipping over and not reading the perks then I'm doing things wrong. So I promise to try and make the perks interesting, sometimes humorous, informative, and relevant to the story.

A very well-thought out concept and well written MC allow everything to fall into place.
If the writer sticks with it, this should become a top story on this web site.
This novel has the halmarks of being a great series I have enjoyed every minute of reading it. Please give it a shot.
This story has a simple premise and it makes it fun as a result: We don't know if the MC was originally a modern man lost in time or if this is just a poor sap dying to live again in a game simulation.
What we do know is as the story progresses, the MC grows in knowledge and power as he dies and learns.
Hopefully in the end, our MC is powerfull enough to stop dying so much. Course...it could be that one day he WILL wish for a perma death...true immortality is not a good thing...
The story is great, the grammar is flawless (at least as far as I can remember), the style is... what even is style? And the main character is pretty darn neat! I. Want. MORE!!!
I'd love to see him bring more and more stuff with him through each life, and perhaps show what happens to his body and home when he dies in one world and ... for lack of a better word, 'joins' another?
I'd say "droning" - bland description of events
The work is pretty average as far as rrl goes. definitely not deserving of being on the top works. made it to chapter 3 and couldnt go any further
story seems poorly thought out with no direction beyond surviving trials that come MC's way. also very nonsense.. in the first chapter he meets goblins, okay cool. Then the goblins start eating everything including the dead, no description of what they're like, just that they enter a clearing and start eating. Then they start pooping, no wait, they're giving birth. Then they eat the babies too. ?? initially going to give this a three, now i'm taking it down to a 2.5 because as I write this out I think how poorly written this is
style. Author's writing style doesn't give us a good look at what's going on. very superficial and even the superficial look is pretty poor. chapter 1 and we're thrown into action already which is fine, but it doesn't really make any sense.
Grammar. is fine so far.
Character. What character? I don't know any characters in the story.
Other than the sloppy update schedule, everything else about this story is good.
it seemed like the story started to meander, then in the latest chapter ( chap. 36 ) we got a nice back story, though not a complete one it is something and gave some direction to the story.
from now on, the fun is in waiting to see when he would go back to a previously visited world.
Personally, I found the valley part to be fun, the story of the hero restarting over and over again to accomplish the impossible by stacking the odds in his favor over each restart is what drew me to this story (and here I can't help but compare it to the mother of learning in it's premise. )
But, jumping to a different world after each restart has it's own charm and potential. but i'm worried about the continuity and the changing goals and narrative in the story.
Mainly because we are following a rigid, muscle brained M.C. who wouldn't adapt to the environment and ppl. it's like following a bland side character, with minimal personality.
The main source of attraction for this story ( as of now) has to come from the settings of each new world he restarts in , and the side characters. and their motivations.
I'm looking forward to the MC, gaining a bit more of a personality & character, and a bit of other P.O.V.'s from the side characters to show us how the others persceive our M.C.
Pretty good example of heroic fantasy, as for me.
MC is a badass, kinda overpowered a bit, but its explained later.
The story has some LitRPG elements, 0 % of any romance and/or relationships.
Basically there is only 1 character in the story, which is our MC.
Will follow the story for sure.
I don’t normally write reviews, but I love this one so much that I want to offer the author whatever encouragement I can. I read tons of stories on this site and as stated this one is my absolute favorite. It plays with my favorite themes that this community writes around and still manages to be a breathe of fresh air.
The installments are shorter and farther apart than I would like, but I look forward to every one of them. Take as much time as you need to keep up your originality and quality. I will be here.
The grammar on the whole is decent, and the story is enjoyable. Its got the right kind of vibe, and enough of a premise to go far
