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.

A wonderful LitRPG. Please consider giving it a read.

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.

Common Premise, Excellent Execution

A great story so far.

I wont go into details about the specifics as many reviews have already done, but the story does manage to stand out in some significant ways from several others in it's genre. 

The MC is presented in a very believable manner, and makes choices that make sense given his circumstances. 

He is, without a doubt, not OP, and doesn't appear to be getting there any time soon. (I would argue that this is a good thing) This helps to make the main character seem more like a participant of the world, and not a spectator/tourist. 

The story is given complexity due to a language barrier between the MC and the world around him, as well as often awkward encounters due to this. This increases the realism of the story, and adds a unique perspective that not explored in most of the LitRPG genre. 

Certainly worth the time to read!

This is one of the good ones

if you are looking for an in-depth analysis then you won’t get one here, but I can inform you this fiction is worth a read! Even just reading 3 chapters will get you hooked for more instantly!

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.

The best take on the Genre

If you havent yet, read it. Its the best take on the genre that Ive seen so far.

The characters have more than one dimension, the MC discovers things at the same time as the reader and his questions are our questions. 

The System is explained to us in a good manner, not filling space but adding to the story (so far 25 ch). It is involving in a good way, makes us want to be there and experiment as well.

The MC is not a hero, but he doesnt shy away from morality and the other characters have been a good representation of a society (not always good, but there a few good people out there).

Havent noticed any grammar mistakes so far, but Im not the best at it, so I will not judge that, sorry.

The story development have been pretty good and in Spoilers, for obvious reasons, I will place my hopes for this story (please take it with a pinch of salt)

Spoiler: Spoiler

The story so far have been gravitating to alianate the MC, even if he himself doesnt notice. I hope that this is not in the form of him becoming socially akward or afraid of people, just more cautious and tending to side with the minorities.

I hope for the development of the Antler guy (not good with names, sorry) as a side character. Not side story, dont like those, but a character for us to imerse our feeling together.

The System is something that should have a mystery if the story is to continue with the exploration of its contents. Things that only become available with level, or things that are different for each person, but not by much. Also, keeping the character ocupied so he doesnt have to much time to ponder over every thing and diluting the content over serveral chapters to help readers.

I also hope he doesnt end up a broken character that can do every thing by himself. He already learned that other people = good. No need to make him an overpowered loner, maybe a team player who jumps from party to party could be nice.

Again, take it with a pinch of salt and I hope that story keeps going as long as it has to. 

 As a side note, for the Author. Dont burn yourself over comments and sugestions, keep your rithim, follow your Idea if you know where you are going, but sometimes is nice to read what other people think about your story to know where you came from.

Author that is fighting to escape Cliché

I hate Cliché...

Thus I really, really enjoy this story. It had many "realistic" moments which glued me to its plot.  A character which is not magically able to speak the native language is quite of a challenge to write down. But the author has done it.

However, I am afraid that the story might run off the cliff soon (as of chapter 26), as the MC might quickly -in 20 or so chapters- become OP while the number of skills he has grows to the extreme. At that moment it all often becomes simply too complex to follow, something which often happens to this kind of stories. Also, a bunch of plot-stuff happened a bit too quickly... I guess the author is trying to make all of it more exciting. But in my opinion that is not necessary, it is the small, human "realistic" things which make this story shine so much. Not flashy powers.

 

Hope the author manages to keep the simplicity his first 10-15 chapters had. As it was brilliantly done.

Common premise, great execution!

It’s a common premise but done better then almost any other version I’ve seen to date. It also has some very novel features and plot events that I’ve rarely, if ever, seen in the genre. Definitely one to watch, I’ve enjoyed it immensely so far!

More realistic behavior than most.

A New Fav story for me

This story is well planned and pleasing to read.

The author reacts to his readers.

The story starts with a random guy (not a former kung-fu specialist or hard core gamer) used to playing DnD and he arrives in the middle of nowhere. 

This is not new, but the story calls to you when the author brings up the difficulty of going to the toilet, of language, money, of loneliness in a strange world, of politics ...etc

I like it that even at chapter 26, you still get "and so he got the <something> out of the <something> place" .... 

the stats, and their impact with skills and real str/intelligence...Etc are interestingly well thought up.

the narrative is brightened by our MC trying to understand everything, and being privy to his thought, we follow his understanding, his will to munchkin and min-max his level and the reasoning behind.

And the MC makes wrong decisions, or mistakes due to normal human limits or misunderstanding... that's good.

the plots and arc-plots are not visible yet ; it seems for the moment to be more a slice of life than any-thing else, but it's possible it'll evolve later.
