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.

Absolutely love this story so far. I can’t wait to see how it goes! 4.5/5 Stars.

-.5 Stars for not ending the synopsis with “Hotel? Trivago”

It seems like a lot of effort goes into the system and math. I appreciate the effort. MC has access to possible skills, and there is usually debate on his best build. If you enjoy theorizing builds, you will like this. The story seems to go slowly sometimes, but I still enjoy reading it.

 

My favorite part of the story was the beginning, when the MC had a language barrier. It helped to relate with the MC, trying to figure out what other characters wanted from him.

Best story on this site

I don't have a lot more to say. I love this story. Not every great story is great to everyone, but to me this story is phenomenal. The pacing is great, it's slow sometimes but that's realistic. The main character is notable for being level-headed and is building himself the exact same way I would. The other characters are relatable in a way that makes the world mundane, making it all the richer because of it. Good story is good, even with katana woman.

Once I started I was hooked. The whole premise is simple, but very very polished! It's really quite amazing how polished it is. And it feels real, and nothing so far ruins that suspension of disbelief. 

 

I'm sucked into the setting and I like it.

The best part of this is that there are only like 28 chapters out right now so when I dived in and read the whole thing in one sitting I didn't die of starvation before I got to the end.

Juicy, juicy, litRPG, Oct 22, 2019

I've held off on doing a review for this story for a while.  I wanted to see if the author could keep the level of quality high enough... and the author succeeded.

Possibly spoilers to follow

It doens't really bring a whole lot of new to the genre but it brings a believable world and characters.  Some might take issue with the MC's obsession with the system and the constant min/maxxing, I however, view this as much more likely to be true.  I think a lot of gamers, especially RPG gamers would behave in a similar manner.  Looking for any edge or advantage they could get from the system.

Writing is solid, grammar is good, word choice is decent, and the characters are mostly well thought out.  Worth a read.

How to feel good with middle school math

After reading upto chap 62
this novel started off really great. We get a sense of unease, the world looks grey with a sense of danger lurking at every corner. But lucky us, the novels peeks at around chap 5-7. After that everything goes down the drain. 
Just like those CN novels, it feels like the author is under some deadline so is just filing in the word count. Basically it went from a darkish novel to something one would read in 5-6 standard. Even for them, it is a boring read.
then the characters. some of the most boring/cliched characters ive read.
then the system boxes. in almost every chapter we get the full list of his stats and skills and even when there aren't that many changes. 
finally the plot. its non-existent. the world is plain, like a typical JP isekai world. the story is just Rain, our mc trying to cheat the system, the system that the author is building. the 'author' doesnt stop there. he decided to tell us each and every step in excruciatingly long detail. 
wasted my free day on this. You should run away from here.

LitRPG where the MC actually min/maxes!

This fiction is an excellent LitRPG story, where the MC does the math and min/maxes his abilities. I'm eagerly awaiting each new chapter as they come out!

Style: The narrative is very well written, easy to read and flows nicely.

Story: MC's goal is a bit indistinct, but the narrative is pretty well-paced so far.

Grammar: Nearly perfect, no complaints.

Character: Some stereotypical characters, but they mostly have a proper 'feel' to each of them.

I absolutely love this story. The world and character build are unique and different and has so much potential. The world and character design so far has been well thought out and I can't wait to see where things go from here. The one and only complaint I have is not enough chapters but unfortunately that's life.
