Excellent fresh take on litrpg systems

How have I not seen this story until now?

Well written, interesting world, relatable and reasonable MC, excellent grammar and spelling.

Spoilery plot summary:

  • Overall Score

Seems promising. Would recommend 100%. Read this. Just don't expect any form of crafting. If given an axe head and an axe handle, the author's characters would be grateful for their new wacking stick and shiny-sharp rock with a hole in it. Never shal 1 + 1 = anything. It's hauntingly bizarre, and must be some form of restriction due to the character's intelligence/wisdom scores. "No one's that stupid" might not be true here, they might actually just be that stupid.

As of ch18

Most of the characters make sense to me. The situation they have presented to themselves does seem somewhat realistic.

Even after my rant, I have to say that I am still enjoying the novel so far as a litrpg story. Wish you would delve further into the stats (maybe something to look out for in the future.). If you are on the fence I would say to at least give it a try.

Gritty Apocalyptic Fantasy

Taking the usual LitRPG stats and making them an integral part of society was a really amazing premise that led to an even more amazing plot where nothing feels forced or rushed.

The pacing of the plot, character interactions in context, and blurbs are great as well.

Definitely read this story if you want to go on an epic adventure.

I love it. It could be a round of the hill MC looses power in apocalypse story but it is not. It is extremely localised and we don't get any exposition. We know only what the MC knows. That is what makes the story unique and enjoyable

Story to keep an eye on

(CAO Ch. 18)

A nice minimalist litRPG system, which itself suffers a kind of rebalancing/litRPG apocalypse. Its use of the opening-chapter worldbuilding tidbits is excellent; they're as good as those used in Luck Lockyer or a step below Practical Guide to Evil. Doing the little details well speaks greatly of the author.

I have some quibbles with some things that have/are going on in the more recent few chapters but I'm willing to trust the Author is building to a point or there's a plot thread being woven.

Gets Better and with still a lot of Potential

Reviewed at: Chapter 52

A very neat post apocalypse novel and definitly one of the better ones. The character as well as the power progression is handled very well. The world and setting get expanded continuosly and you always feel like there is more that the author is hiding from us.

The action, while not breathtaking or outstanding is still quite good and it feel very realistic since they are still (more or less) fighting like normal humans and not just slinging spells around. 

One highlight for me is how actions and decisions have actual consequences and the characters grow with their mistakes.

Overall this Novel is really good and gets continuously better.

I really enjoyed this story. I love how the numbers and how they affect the world is revealed throughout the story. The author does a great job of revealing the world without it being exposition. The new change of the numbers and how it affects everyone is interesting and a fresh take on the genre. 

One of the things I especially like about this story is how the character is very much a teen. He is surviving and going through the situation in what I feel is very realistic for a teenager with no survival training. It makes the story more immersive. I like how he makes mistakes and he isn't the strongest and is growing as he goes. 

Definitely a good read.

A numbers-based novel, where the world gets turned on its head and nothing is ever the same!
This one's a blast folks. Definitely worth checking out!


For those Game-lit addicts, this is quite different from your run-of-the-mill levelling systems. So be warned, blue boxes are not the main focus!

Highly recommended, Syranr has outdone themselves with this banger!

  • Overall Score

I have been meaning to rate and review this for a while, especailly after reading a new chapter. I find this a rather unique take on the Litrpg Post Apocalyptic, Alternate History trope.

It's well written with no grammar issues. The plot and world building is amazing and indepth with 40 + chapters in and snipets and layers of what once was and now is after everyone's numbers were reset keeps adding to the overall growth of the novel.

The MC and his friends everyday life and death decisions in the face of adversity and trials are believable and the growth from overcoming these advserties shows itself in there evolving skills and no insta OP, no overnight butt kicking skill or magical abilities that makes the MC and co overcome any and all situations.

If after this books has been completed and the author decides to publish i will definetly purchase in support of such great work.
