The Hero's Supplier

by Cold_Sun

Original HIATUS Action Adventure Fantasy Mystery LitRPG Magic Martial Arts Multiple Lead Characters Secret Identity Strategy

Rick made new rules for himself every few days. But there was only one rule that he truly always followed- Don’t stretch your legs more than the size of your blanket. The way to success was by not drawing unwanted attention.

But when the Inter-planar wars began, Rick had no other choice than to survive, and for that, he had to give up his laid-back lifestyle.

"Still not gonna be a hero!” Rick vowed.

Superhuman strength, agility, ability to use magic, telepathy, all sorts of talents emerged.

As heroes began to emerge among the population, Rick decided to take up the mantle of being the man in the shadows.




Disclaimer: Although I try my level best to avoid, There definitely are grammatical errors in the chapters, if anyone points them out I will be really happy to make the corrections.

I am trying to post chapters as regularly as possible and sometimes miss out on editing it completely.
I hope you enjoy the story.

A story with a good plot and great potential

I will recommend it to everyone who want a new take apocalyptic story, to ppl who are tired of just mc grinding and getting random power increasing  lucky encounters

First of all your idea is great but in your story I feel like you are not keeping to it. In your synopsis you told of an mc who wants to remain in shadows but in the story we see a kid who was able to bs through then later gave info randomly to a guy and then even to the entire market

The mc I thought of while reading the synopsis and even during the initial chapter was someone who was a fast thinker and we'll to be a lawyer he was smart but what you portray is a naive kid 

Although there is not much character development but still it works if you just focus on the getting stronger and even the atmosphere or live of ppl in this new world like what's the politics  or even how the mc uses his ability to sell or even change things through the "shadows "

I really liked your style of writing and was easy on the eyes(I.e. no grammatical errors that can be found if you are not looking for them)

Needs a lot of rewriting but shows potential

It started out very well but the story started deteriorating and at chapter 9 it went full on Wuxia with people basically thinking,"Weakling! He cannot be strong enough etc etc." And the MC shows he's better than anyone except for the reader of course expected.

Descriptions of things instead of showing what it does. You don't need to explain what a tool can do when you use the tool! The description of the grimoire isn't needed. First of all anyone who's picked up a fantasy book knows what one is. Secondly, your MC might be "smart" but he acts like a moron.

Quality before quantity.

I would call it it chinese styled

 Story is extremely similar to many chinese novels.

Not in the story department, but in the way words and sentences are structured, which I dislike hence 2.5 stars. Otherwise the story is ok, not exelent but definetly not bad.

  • Overall Score

It's a nice story structured like a wuxia. As other reviewers have stated, the synopsis is not really indicative of what the story is about, but if you like wuxia you should give it a try.

Main character is not the hero

Slow start. 

I would recommend everyone to give a go. The MC is not the strongest and the system is also unique. There are elements of summoning as well. And now there is a chicken pet. 

There are grammatical errors here and there, but it does not really bother the overall flow.

Chapter 2 was how far I got, before going "Oh, he's given everything, and earns nothing." This is terrible. Why would anyone want this?

Very Little Originality

The overall style of the writing is slightly below average and nothing original. The basic story is nothing original, with several parts extremely similar to half a dozen different stories on here alone, with the main difference being they are far less thought out and much more badly written. The grammar starts off ok and then takes a dive bomb a few chapters in. And the characters are completely bland and barely described at all. Overall, it is a shoddy piece of junk that needs to be completely rewritten with major changes made to it and with a dedicated editor looking over it in order to be any good.

Could have been great but degenerated too fast.

The first chapter was the best and the only good chapter of this story. 

Potential? NO. Plotholes start at ch 30. At least the author knows this is just a draft and is willing to improve.

Execution past chapter 2: shit to shittier.

Edit:I think i understand now, after reading past ch 19. The author sucks at making realistic interactions between his sister and any other person beside his subordonates,making him feel like he has multiple personality disorder or smth similar.

Filler prologue from ch 4 to 19. The story become bearable after ch 20 and enjoyable after 24. Dropped for good after readin ch 32. Neah man, i forgive bad grammar and bad character developement but not forced plotholes. 

Don't waste your time here untill some serious edits are done
