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.

If there was a pure LITRPG this would be it. Though undeniably cookie cutter it is a well executed simple LITRPG that focuses primarily on stats and doesn't fall into many of the pitfalls other litrpgs fall into. There are no harem hijinks, bad romance subplots or corny comedy lines, just straight good litrpg action. By well executing a simple plot it is much better than other stories that try too hard to be different. Keep it up!

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.

This story reminds me of Grimgar of fantasy  and ash. Lots of wasted words, slow progression, and a plot that seems to go nowhere. For example: the lair under the sewers and the ruins under the mine.

When things get interesting, the mc and team becomes cautious and retreats. This is realistic but makes for a boring story.

The later chapters about building, smithing, and pottery should have been a paragraph or two long, not entire chapters on each subject. They were especially boring. Reads to me like a cheap wordy rehash of Cody's Lab and Primative Technology.

The characters are the saving grace of this story. They are real, rational, and relatable. Reader has some sympathy for the mc's trials and tribulations.

First off late me say that I think this is a good story.   That being said it is currently rated a bit too high for my taste (3rd best story on this site). 

As of the first 27 chapters it is off to a good start, but I don't see much which differentiates it from other good litRPGs.  That isn't to say it is bad.  It just doesn't have anything about it which makes it unique as of yet.  This is a world that we have seen before many times. 

It is still early in the story though, so hopefully as more time passes it will become something truly special.  I think it has a chance to.

A wonderful bit of perfect.

This story is a beautiful bit of writing with characters who feel real, a world that feels fleshed out, and a storyline that makes you experience every moment, even when the main character is just cleaning the room.

The only criticism I have is that there isn't enough of it.

Well Made with New Ideas, +1 Respect

I must say, I love what a lot of authors on RR are doing right now with taking the same tropes we've seen and given a refined twist. The character's natural ignorance and sense of displacement in contrast to the usual easy acclimation to the world we see with the usual protag, proves a refreshing new take and perspective. This, combined with likeable characters and a well-done system of progression works well. Although there are some unanswered questions, they are few in number and easily ignorable. 

Overall a well-done and enjoyable story. 

+1 Respect

My biggest problem with this story is MC's build. And considering it's a major part of the book, there is a giant gaping bleeding plothole that should have killed the protag or at least the story long ago.

Wish I found this sooner

Current chapter 26.  

Love this novel.  Its so realistic and it doesnt play into the usual tropes that other novels go towards.  I love the style and the blue boxes.  They give the novel more realism.  I love the novel and wish I found it sooner.  Keep going!  20 Chapters a day please!  Need more!
