Reborn on a Systemless Earth... With a System

Reborn on a Systemless Earth... With a System

by B. A. Baker (Thedude3445)

You know the setup: A young man on Earth hit by a speeding truck who ends up in a generic fantasy world.
But what about this: A young man in a generic LitRPG fantasy world hit by a carriage who ends up in modern-day San Francisco, and yet still wants to be a hero anyway? That's how Systemless starts, and boy does it never let up.

Join Eryk Solbourne and his two Earthen friends Francis and Delta as they adventure across the United States and try to achieve the impossible: becoming the ultimate hero in a world where levels don't even exist.

The Dark Fish Out of Water Comedy LitRPG You Didn't Know You Needed!

Reviewed at: Special: Royals of Foreign Lands

Summary: Systemless is a great fish out of water comedy with LitRPG elements.  I.e. it feels more slice of life than action/adventure.  There isn't really a lot of combat, instead more of a focus on exploration and learning (think Pillars of Eternity) and it works very well.  That said, if you are coming here to read about a powerful combat oriented protagonist this probably isn't the story you should want.

The story is fast paced with short paragrahs.  That makes it a simple/easy read but from time to time it can be a bit too quick and distracting.

What mistakes there were seem to have been fixed before I finished my read through.  Nothing to complain about.

It's more slice of life, so the plot isn't the focus but the worldbuilding is top notch.  The story has done a good job so far of exploring the characters and how they interact with each other.  The system serves as both an interesting plot element as well as a ticking time bomb that drives the plot forward, keeping things from becoming too stagnant in the Slice of Life Elements.

All of the characters feel fleshed out and real.  The MC's fish out of water act is starting to wear a little thin, but at the same time he's learning.  I'm most interested right now in how some of the secondary characters develop.

YAK Edge

In the wide sea of Isekais and LitRPGs that are flooding this site, Systemless certainly shines thanks to its unique premise.

Story 4/5

The premise is simple. Your standard LitRPG protagonist dies and instead of this super awesome world gets reincarnated into our world. Right in the middle of a convention. And hijinks ensue. After ten chapters, he can include illegal weapon possession, property damage, public harassment and arson to his list.

Especially interesting is the reincarnation system that is tied to the overall cosmology. There is certainly some potential there.

Characters 3/5

Eryk is your standard LitRPG protagonist. You have probably met many others like him before. What makes him unique is the situation where he finds himself him. As such, he gets bonus points for developing into an atypical direction. Not to mention that his typical way of thinking just won't work in a systemless wok. 

As such, after chapter ten, he is neither too bad not too good. He is likable enough that one can follow him and there is a lot of potential that he will develop into a truly unique protagonist.

The other characters are okay as well. They aren't too developed for now, as the main focus is on Eryk. But they are nice enough that one enjoys reading about them.


Grammar 4/5

The grammar is at a high-enough standard. It is not perfect but there aren't any major issues and it won't diminish the reading experience.


Style 3,5/5

In the beginning, the author uses what I like to call "Light-Novel-Prose". The ration of showing vs telling is skewed towards the telling side and descriptions and atmospheric writing is sparse. That being said, there is some noticeable improvement within the first ten chapters already.

Overall verdict

A fun little story. Fans of LitRPGs and Isekais who like a fresh breeze in the stale land of these two genres will enjoy this story.


So, characters are great, although the possible romance isn't my cup of tea it's still great enough to ignore it. Little to no grammatical or spelling errors. Definitely a potential top 5 trending story!


I hate how this novel just forces misunderstandings and sells that as plot. It is really frustrating to see how NO ONE can actually explain normally what the f is going on to him. Can't anyone just explain anything simple enough, that Eryk understands it? I mean it isn't hard. The charakters are also pretty unrealistic and messy and i dislike this story. The premise is a good one, but the rest? Idk about that


Seeing the title, i thought— Well that is stupid but consider me surprise.

This story rocks.

I'm a lazy reader and I prefer short paragraphs than long ones. And this novel is to my taste.

Short paragraphs with content. Characters are lovable and awesome.

Plot is not original bu the author makes it more interesting than others.

I hope you try this and loved it as much as I do.



 I dislike the characters I tried but couldn't get over how they're portrayed. That being said I give 4 starts in character because they're well done. I mean sure I don't like them but they're well done and fleshed out. Credit where credit is due. The Grammer is great the style is unique and I read a lot of it just for the smooth story. It's nice to read something professional level from time to time. Anyway everyone should give it a chance I'm dropping it but it took me 30chapters to realize it's not my cup of tea.


It's a fresh take on a worn out story type. That said, it's okay. The writing is not bad. Could use a bit of a clean up. The grammar is also the same way. Just needs some house cleaning. The story itself is alright, it's a neat take on this type of story. I kinda like the MC, but the other people are kinda boring.
