Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Traumatising content

What would you do if you woke up alone in a forest in nothing but your pajamas?

This is a story about a man trying to answer that question as he navigates a world of monsters, magic, adventure, and numbers going up. It isn't all fun and games, though. Survival is tough when you are alone, and the dangers of the wilderness are not to be underestimated.

This is a world governed by a system of stats, skills, and dialog boxes. It is vital to know how the system works if you want any chance of having a life of meaning in this world. Too bad someone forgot to include the instruction manual.

Portal/LitRPG done well

The premise is one that can easily be found on Royal Road.  The main character winds up in another world and finds himself with a status screen, and oh yeah, magic works.

What makes this different from the others in this genre, is that the Main Character doesn't come with the knowledge of how to speak the language, how to min/max his skills, how his skills work or magic work, or have even the basic survival skills.

His life is as much just trying to understand and survive as it is gaining levels and stats.

This ignorance is refreshing, and perhaps the most realistic narrative of what would happen if a person were dropped in a strange world with different rulesets. 

Amazing 5's across the board.  

Grammar is on point, and the author is responsive and quick to fix any mistakes that are pointed out.

A great realistic adventure in the making

This may just seem another story of the transported to a Fantasy world with LitRPG type, but quickly shows itself to be different, and it improves on the genre standard by so much.

I honestly did not expect much when i started to read this, but now its one of my actual favorites. I have been totally impressed by this story and how enjoyable it is to just keep reading, the story is also very entertaining with all the situations the MC gets in. I just loved every moment of reading this.

The MC is just, realistic, even if he may act stupid at times, this is mostly due to him not knowing near enough about the world and its inhabitants, sadly for him, that includes language differences, which has proven to be a major problem for him. He does have quite some flaws, such as being impulsive, and that makes me only like him more as a character.

 

The world so far has been well-constructed, but due to certain reasons, not much has been revealed yet. So far it has been shown to be a pretty standard Medieval Fantasy world, with there being no major differences from the usual standard.

The author has written one of the most well-constructed LitRPG Systems i have read so far on Royalroad with this story, its very different from the LitRPG systems used in other stories and really thought out, with there being no easy shortcuts to becoming powerful, its basically all how you plan your stats, skills/skill trees and classes and then act accordingly.  There are even alternative ways of earning exp aside from combat/crafts.  But the greatest difference is Customization, and thats quite hard to explain. I personally like the fact that even though the status screens appear on most chapters, they do not hinder the reading experience at all.

Good grammar in this fiction, with there being barely any grammatical errors or typo's, and even if there are, they are easy to detect and do not hinder the reading experience at all, the authors use of grammar remains very consistent throughout the story, not only that, the author has a good gasp on the English language, with correct word usage in his sentences.

Great pacing for this story, the flow of the story just keeps you reading the whole time. The story as a whole feels realistic, with no forced stuff or weird plotholes or anything like that.  The author has done a great job at making this story as detailed as possible without detracting from other aspects of the story. There is also a good balance between  adventure, humour, action and worldbuilding (what there has been so far).

Ill be honest that i just cannot find anything specific to criticize the story for,  it is just that good.

 

I have to applaud the author for all the work he has put into making sure this story is of high quality while also making it enjoyable to read. I have faith the author will be able to make something truly great with this story, considering what he already has written so far for this story.

I wholeheartly recommend this story for any fan of Fantasy, this has been a story of really high quality so far and there is just so much potentional to be explored here. So thus, start reading this story already!

seriously I love this story I’ve wanted a story that just focuses on the growth and adventures of a non op main character in a guild for years instead of making the whole guild thing like a side note. Please keep it coming I like the powers he’s mastering and I like the world building

Spoiler: Spoiler

I love the twist with that asshole in the guild but please let him return I desperately wanna see him climb the ranks and earn his place in the world

Has everything you could want in a LitRPG. Action, adventure, monsters, and loot. All in a nice neatly wrapped package.

Very well written story, I didn't notice any mistakes.

The MC is cleverly written, makes his share of mistakes but learns from them later. The concept in the story that the MC doesn't instantly cheat his way into learning the local language is great, goes a long way to making the story immersive.

The magic and world building is very well thought out, a tidy system with (IMO) no loose ends.

This story is awesome, my only gripe is waiting a week for each release. (Which is great really, I hope the author takes as long as is needed)

I am so happy to have found this story, it is really excellent. First of all, the LitRPG aspects are on point. The stats are so of the most balanced I have seen, easy to understand, not overwhelming, and yet also allow a place for the MC to min-max. The plot-point of not knowing the language could be exhausting in another fiction, but here it is done well.

Review as of chapter 25. Minor spoilers ahead.

I think this is a pretty unique story, an isekai fiction but without any of those fancy gifts. Everything that the main character has obtained feels organic which is fantastic, from learning the language or any of his skills or levels. It might be that he breaks some sort of mechanic in the world after awhile or maybe he's already done so, but so far the story has a great track record of  giving reasonable explanations. It's got some depressing stuff in it (mostly just having to do with being alone), which is incredibly different in this genre. I'm looking forward to where the fiction goes in the future.
