Death is not the end.  But actions do have consequences and based on how you lived your life, second chances are possible.  

I'd been bullied, brutalized, and ostracized in this life, and the cumulative effect of other's action along with how I'd lived my life allowed me a second chance.  I could choose how to reincarnate, who to be, and what Universal constants would impact my next life. 

Who wouldn't try to game the system and take all the advantages possible?

Get a System.  Become a Prince.  And unleash Magic Powers as well as a cool sword!

Game on!

This is my first attempt at writing anything longer than an essay for school projects so any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated!

Thoroughly Entertaining

All in all, I enjoyed what exists of this novel thus far.

The only thing that bothered me was the seemingly constant shifting plot points.

Without stating spoilers, the main character will decide to do A, but suddenly B happens, railroading what he must do, once B is resolved, A is forgotten and the MC moves onto C.

All in all, it earns the slothy seal of approval.

My brother suggested I read this one.

I'm glad he did, I'm enjoying it.

There isn't anything earth-shattering new, in this story.  But it is written well.

I think my favorite part has to be with the races and world development.  I like that humans don't really exist on this world, but there seem to be a bunch of races that hopefully will make for some interesting story lines.

As of the moment of writing this, which is 15 chapters.

I have been thoroughly enjoying the available content as much as I can. 

Although the concept used is in no way an original, I feel that it is still being used in a way that won't tire the readers (or me at least) unless you end up doing very specific things to your story.

Examples of this would be either Kingdom-building which isn't cut out for everyone, or stray too far from the story. (An example would be Skyrim, with mods and side quests. Let's face it, who does the main story until you're way too strong for it anyways?)

 

I look forward to more content, and hopefully to increase my rating.

Good work.

Just afraid that it would be inevitably tagged with the Malicious entity named "Hiatus". It has already consumed so many other good works. Hope the author is strong enough to resist it's evil power.

A story thats more than it seems to be at first.

This has been a great read so far, i really liked how the author has been using fantasy elements from mythologies in this story.

The MC has lived a terrible life, being abusing and suffering throughout his old life, then he dies, and the system gives him a new chance, but not all is as simple as it seems.

Politics play a large role in this story, with the main character being royalty in the dangerous world of Talahm, and him being forced to join the Seelie and Unseelie courts with all their deadly intrigues and plots, there he has to quickly adapt to the life of the courts. And he has to worry about the gods themselves, they have noticed his arrival to the world, and some of them do not take kindly to beings like him.

The author has written his world with heavy influence from Celtic mythology, and there are other mythologies that have been used in this story. The author has added a interesting twist to this world, by making the Sidhe civilization use technology based on magic, this has proven to be a really interesting combination so far, with the Sidhe civilization being like Modern day earth in many aspects of their technology, much work has gone in making the Sidhe civilization as detailed and coherent as possible, while also staying as close to the myths as possible, the author has done his research into Celtic mythology and its races. I do really want to see what the author will reveal next about the world, its races and the greater universe of the story.

Theres also one of the more advanced litRPG systems i have read so far on royalroad, with it having some interesting concepts i have only seen being used in VR stories, the system fits well with the story and its setting.

The author has clearly proven he is adept at the english language and good at editing his story, since there are barely any typo's or grammatical mistakes in this story so far, and even if they exist, they are noticed and fixed fast and thus do not hinder the reading.

Pacing of the story so far, even if it is short, has been good, the story is also very enjoyable to read, with a lot of chapters containing action, politics or even comedy, nor does the occasional infodump about the world even feel annoying to read through.

Personally i would say the author could certainly make the story even better than this, but what he is writing already, is a good story that deserves to be read.

Anyone thats a fan of a story that does incorperate mythology and adds litRPG in the mix, will really like this.

Reincarnation with a twist.

I've always been a fan of the old myths and legends that dealth with the Gods.

It's fun to see this author re-introduce them.  The MC may certainly have his hands full dealing with so many Gods from so many different mythologies.  

I'm not to familiar with the Sidhe, they seem a bit like elves, I'm really intereseted in seeing the world develop and maybe get a fuller understanding of these races.  I hope we get to see more Seelie and Unseelie races.

Great start as of chapter 17.

I kind of feel badly for Mac and Caraid, I hope this story has redemption and revenge.  It may be too late for Mac in his past life.  But he can get some justice for Caraid!

Really well written.  I'd like to see faster updates, but that's just me being greedy.  As long as the quality stays consistent, a chapter two or three times a week works.

Found this story on the trending list.  I'm new to Royal Road, and I have so many stories to read and catch up on!

I think the author is doing a decent job of telling a story.  

I was kind of surprised the writing was good.  I expected much worse.
