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 this world 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. Too bad someone forgot to include the instruction manual.

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

Realistic, (near) infinite power with clearly defined costs. LitRPG at its finest. All self respecting murderhobos know the path to (near) infinite power starts in a sewer.

It is missing a few things

Everyone has already said what's great about this story, so I'll just add what it is missing.

First thing this is missing is pace. The story is slow, and above that, the uploads are even slower.

The second thing it is missing is a threat. We are 29 chapters in and Mc still hasn't been threatened by anyone or thing. The author completely missed his chance to bring a disaster into the story related to Mc's unfortunate teleportation and then by introducing him to the smith.

The third thing this story is missing is growth. The author missed another chance in the recent chapters when Mc was left stranded by providing him a guardian out of the blue. Even there he behaves as polite as a water puddle, afraid of being stepped on.

And there were some unneeded paragraphs, but they don't really matter. And is characters changes personality from time to time, but those things can be rectified easily by doing a checkup. 

Alright, I'm done.

New:

It's boring.

I've read a lot of litrpg fics on this site and I've got to say this is one of the best starts I've ever seen. It's pretty early to be judging it but based on the writing quality and interesting characters so far I think it definately deserves 5 stars.

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)

This sotry is only at chapter 11 as of this but I'm egarly awaiting the next one. I can relate with the main charector and can't help but thinking what I would do in his place. I've only seen one grammer error so far witch is a great deal better than some of the other stories i'e seen on this sight so far. All that said, I just finished my 6th drink and am working on my 7th... Shut up, I'm not an alchoholic. You're an alcholic!

So far decent though the MC actsquite questionable

A typical portal/isekai premise with the MC winding up in an unknown world for no real reason gaining access to a system including magic.

What sets this one apart is mostly that the protagonist starts with no knowledge of the language which makes the start very interesting.

The story hasn't progressed very far and by chapter 30 there isn't actually any story involved at all. It is pretty much just MC trying to figure stuff out with no real goal or main plot in sight. I personally don't dislike that.

Spoiler: Spoiler

 So all in all a good story with good writing but a kinda underwhelming and dumb MC.

A lot of math though so hopefully all the math in his build checks out at least.

Pretty good, bogged down on details

An excellent litRPG, with a very original powerset.

My main issue with it is all the math, it isn't very fun to read when it gets REALLY detailed, especially in the last few examples.

There are other minor issues, like the language barrier contrivedly becoming irrelevant, and the characters being somewhat undefined, but it is an extremely addictive story nonetheless.

Worth following.

Decent amounts of math, very little character. Almost textbook Japanese weak-minded beta-male transportee.

The system is interesting, but there's no real story or background. Protagonist is content to bask in his ignorance.

excellent litRPG isekai, I want more of it

(as of chapter 23)

Delve tells us the story of Rain, who finds himself in a fantasy world with a stat/skill system. Nothing new so far, but there is more: Starting alone, without money or equipment and without speaking the local language is very rough and Rain is clearly struggling. After a while manages to cope and slowly get some basic stuff together.

Style: The story is told in third-person style from Rain's internal point of view including a focus on the thoughts that go through his head. The descriptions are good.

Story: Not understanding the local language and having to start from zero both in possessions and in knowledge is a very refreshing difference from most of the other stories here on RRL. The LitRPG system is nice with some standard stats and a very complex and interesting skill (-tree) system. The pace of the story is fine, by chapter 23 lots of things happened but it doesn't feel rushed.

Grammar: Very good, the occasional typos are quickly corrected when noticed.

Characters: We learn mostly about Rain, both from watching him and from his inner thoughts. He's pretty smart and tries to get the best out of his finite stat points and skill points with the little information he has, min-maxing even a bit too much in my opinion. At the same time his difficulty in acclimatization to the new world shows a good depth and the inclusion of realism in his characterization. The people he meets in his travels are a mix of helpful, neutral and a**holes, but all feel realistic as far as they have been described so far.

In total, this story is both excellently written and captivating, making me look forward to the next chapter. If you like lots of numbers in your LitRPG then you have to read it.
