The Power of Ten: Sama Rantha

by RE Druin

Original ONGOING Action Adventure Fantasy Sci-fi Female Lead GameLit Grimdark High Fantasy LitRPG Magic Mythos Space Opera
Warning This fiction contains:
  • Profanity

Some time ago, a planes-traveling archmage made up a video game to train some people on the planet Earth for the catastrophe he knew was coming.

That game was the Power of Ten.

This is not that story. This is the story of what happens when certain divine powers take advantage of the fact that there is now a system out there that can imprint ass-kicking gamer characters onto souls for use on places other than the planet Earth...

Sama Rantha is one of those characters, and is going to find out that being a Hagchild is much, much less fun then setting it to your Race at level One on a gamescreen, and having to survive after your Hag Curse fails to murder you at birth...

Join Sama Rantha on her Road to Ten, and letting her Hagmother know exactly what she thinks of her...

------

In the second half of the story, : The Warp, the final frontier; in the grim darkness of a galaxy far far away, there came a hagchild...QX!

Sama gets a little out of her comfort zone, but oh, the bad guys are not going to like it anyways...

Discord link: https://discord.gg/gJ6fRs9 is always up if I'm online.

The story updates daily. Each chapter is ~ 4 pages in Word, or 2,000 words.

--------------------

The first section is almost pure LitRPG, with gamer terms heavy as Sama madly exploits the rules as fast as possible to stay alive, minmaxing her heart out to get one up on the system trying to kill her.

This tapers off, but never really goes away, as what is called game terminology really does explain the magic of the world she is in. From there, it's simple powergaming to get strong and fight against the stuff trying to tear the world apart around her.

--------

The second half of the novel sends Sama into the Far Future in a universe she'd rather not be in... but the heart of a powergamer just never says no...

The best way to determine if you are going to like this is to answer two questions with a 'yes':  Have you ever played dungeons and dragons and other fantasy roleplaying games for at least 10 different rule variant campaigns?  Do you know what MAB is?

The authors present hyper-competent characters using a homebrew system loosely based on munchkined AD&D with unexplained abbreviations like MAB and the expectation that everyone multi-classes.  The backbone of this is the classification of characters in Null/Void/Powered/Forsaken which give different restrictions on the base power set.

The author is very good at writing characters dominating his D&D world variation using exploits based on extensive meta-gaming.  The author also focuses on explaining the exploits more than the story, then introduces additional meta-gamed characters with different builds once the main character gets too dominating, I think with the eventual intention to make an overpowered adventuring party.  (I'm at around chapter 170.)

The introduction is very technical.  Many fight scenes I skimmed are "char X took this class level to synergize this power to get +Y to this, this, and more DR, so they didn't die and killed everything".  Some of the mid-book scenes are really good, but it takes effort to get that far.  If you fit the author's target audience, and have at least +5 vs. Jargon, try it.

I will come to the point but first storytime:
In Diablo 2 one of the playable characters was the necromancer, he had a slightly(very) broken mechanic - his blood golem could leach life and heal the necromancer if you cast Iron Maiden(Damage dealt is damage received) curse on enemies the game considered it damage dealt by the golem healing it and you endlessly. Once you took both skills all you had to do is refresh the curse and be wary of a sudden burst(patched out later).
Did you find my short story compelling? or at least interesting? then you may like The Power of Ten.
Granted the author is doing a much better job on the presentation than me, but basically that what you are getting unrepentant hack&slash.

I picked this up and binged it in 7 days including the rest of the available stuff on webnovel(150+) more chapters, so I can say that this was an entertaining and worthwhile read.

 

Now a few things before we go further:

1,) This is a LitRPG that is based on TTRPG's and not Videogames, so no fancy character sheets etc. as such there is a lot of reference to Dice, in many forms, as well as other TTRPG terms, so be warned.

2.) This is not a slow build; you are hitting the ground running and then going straight towards the Mach speeds cause, reasons. Read it to find out. That said the MC/s are while not OP, OP. So yes this is a Power gamer who was virtually there for the Alpha, Beta, and probably spent the rest of their life playing the "game" before they ended up in a world identical to the "game", so hilarity to ensue.

 

Now, if the above points do not upset you, then read on, otherwise, just read the damn thing and make up your mind.

 

Style: I like it, I like the interactions, I like the view changes, I like the way the MC is always First-person, and everyone else should be second or third view. I love that things are explained. I like that you can with a little patience to work out how and why the characters are the way they are. I admit to areas of crunch that you don't much find in other books of the genre and say they are LitMMORPG to this LitTTRPG, so it makes sense.

 

Grammar, I could not pick out any errors, but that doesn't say much as I am not a professional, it flowed and moved, and the sentences worked without any significant spelling/punctuation errors.

 

Story; Hilarious, engaging and makes me wish I had the Author for a GM in some of the TTRPGs I have played. This is the brainchild of someone who knows their fantasy/sci-fi and enjoys an excellent rip-roaring time.

 

Characters: Enjoyable and dependable, funny, serious, lovable and engaging. nothing more needs be said.

 

My suggestion, read it, and if you don't understand PM me and I will try help or the author.

Like i said in the title, never played DnD. But i still realy enjoy this story. Most of the numbers you can get behind easely enough and the rest you ignore or Google. 

Characters are likeable, tough they do seem a bit too perfect. And any character flaws aren't realy flaws in the current world. 

I have not found a single grammer mistake so far and I'm at chapter 200. Altough I'm not a native English speaker so It might not mean too much. 

Later on the story gets much more story driven than Litrpg number crunching. 

I 10/10 would reckomend giving this story a chance. 

But now I got to get back too reading I have 60 more chapters until I catch up. 😉

This story can be counted as the highest form of quality one can find on Royalroad or any other similar website and is quite frankly more than worth to be sold as a book. The characters are diverse and interesting, the story is hauntingly addictive and the world-building is simply to die for. That said even though I think this story deserves the highest possible rating, there are some aspects that could be improved to make the novel more accessible to people who are not veterans when it comes to Dungeons & Dragons. I sadly have never played the game and am only familiar with digital game jargon that is also used in LitRPG (MAB etc.). The sad thing is that the first 13/14 chapters are completely filled with this jargon, which results in turning away some readers who would have liked the story if they simply continued some chapters. I would recommened limiting the jargon or prevent using the abbreviation form (like MAB) and just write the complete word so that people can get a better idea what the context is even if they are not familiar with the word itself. Apart from this recommendations I can only thank the author for giving me a chance to experience reading such a gem.

Overall: Make sure you read the glossary before starting the novel. It's good and definitely something I could and have recommended to others.

Style: Oh boy the style. Well first off if you don't like gamelit or litrpg you can just stop reading this review right now. Now initially in the story it is incredibly term heavy and tell not show. This is TO BE EXPECTED. This is TO BE EXPECTED. Important things should be repeated. This is a story that heavily pulls from game and D&D mechanics and you simply can't show that. How would you "show" that ability Example adds +4d4 damage when conditions x and y are satisfied when you have dozens of abilities. It simply isn't possible without a ton of filler text that would make the fights feel artificially slow and clunky. Not to worry like the synopsis states it goes way way down after the nightmare section, although it pops back up occasionally. This story has a very term heavy style simply because those things are all common knowledge within the world it is set in. I personally enjoy this style of writing. GIMME THE NUMBERS 5/5

Grammar: Grammr's gud adn has'nt had any reel errrors that I can remebmer. What moor do u wunt? 5/5

Story: The story has been coherent and while some events have initially seem to have come out of nowhere, once I think back I realize that multiple clues and different smaller things led to each occurence. I had simply not put them together originally without the benefit of hindsight. The beginning of the story, the nightmare section is something that I personally really enjoyed as Sama strung together disparate abilities into something much greater than the sum of its parts. Furthermore, I am enjoyed the initial arc of struggle against the Great Evil. 5/5

Character: The main character, Sama Rantha, is enjoyable to read about. While the other POV's  never quite reach the same level of development we do see multiple other perspectives and other characters' thoughts on things they are doing or that Sama did. The story provides a good grasp on the motives and the whys of the character's actions. 5/5

TL:DR Should read. Is good.

It's a bit term heavy in the beginning but it dies way down later. The storyline and character are interesting and I enjoy the combat and character interactions.

Apparently, this story has been around for some time, given the reviews from prior readers as soon as it showed up on Trending. Having just burned through the entire story in the last couple of days, I figured it would be worth writing out a review for anyone looking to try the story. First thing, the world and growth system is drawn from tabletop RPGs, primarily Pathfinder and D & D, which having only played a game once left me on the outside of all that information. That said, I would ignore those recommending to skip the Nightmare chapters (where the MC is trapped in the realm of Nightmare, not just dreaming). I didn't understand any of the glorious min-maxing going on, but the Nightmare chapters are endless growth runs, dying over and over again while introducing feats that eke out just a little more of an advantage each time.

The premise is that the main characters all died in Terra, and were notably the best players of a game that mirrored the world's mechanics exactly. It's relegated to the background but serves as an explanation for how the characters know exactly what classes and feats to sprint towards in service of min-maxing their perfect build. From there it's a grand romp of seeking out Evil and burning it for The Land, quickly getting embroiled in bigger and bigger schemes and conflicts and drawing more and more people into their orbit as events progress. The world-building is excellent, without overusing or reusing monsters, and constantly traveling into new spaces with new and strange things to kill. The pacing holds to a fast tempo from the start and virtually never slows down, with the occasional emotional beats that are built up to over dozens of chapters. I will say that the grammar and writing errors do interfere with the flow of things and editing would improve that, but significant issues are rare enough that it didn't put me off the story.

Overall, this story makes for an absurdly involved growth and progression that gradually spills out into plot and world exploration. Exposition is never dumped alone and always tied into the story, which makes for a much more compelling read. The only real issue I have is with the ages of the 'little sisters' and their interest in the opposite sex. Otherwise, the story is the equivalent of a team of legendary tabletop players gently taking newbies under their wing and setting them on the path of their perfect build. The main characters are solid, if a bit cut from the same cloth, but if there's one thing this story nails is the sense of endless growth that makes litrpgs so satisfying. There is rarely a moment where the cast isn't getting stronger through either direct stat growth or gear growth, though, the focus does shift after about a hundred chapters to something more plot-oriented while never dropping the rapid forward pacing.

So, all that said, I would recommend this, especially given the sheer amount of content immediately available for consumption. If it doesn't appeal after 15-20 chapters, even when skimming over the class and feat selections, I would guess that it probably won't be your cup of tea, but for those that enjoy it, buckle up for a wild ride.

This is a very good story from webnovel.com, that is free I might add, that I highly recommend. This author has only recently come to RR, so the more viewers that this story gets the quicker you’ll get the author to upload more.

The story itself is a masterpiece that deserves full stars from me.

It can get a little confusing at the beginning since it uses a lot of D&D terminology, but a bit after the that and it kicks off into the action packed character driven story its meant to be.

This story is legitimately one of my favorites on this website. RE Druin, the author, clearly put immense time and effort into it, and it pays off. The LitRPG is heavily based on D&D, but the author makes it their own. There are a number of original components, including various creatures, branches of magic, and the like that are well integrated into the world's lore and mechanics.

It is a bit overwhelming at first glance, due to the complex statistic systems used in D&D, but it lightens up significantly. If you read the prologue (even skim it) you'll be prepared for the story. Once you get past the first 20 chapters, it lightens up on the numbers.

The first 100 chapters are a doozy, and truly amazing. Be warned, however, that in these first 100 or so chapters, the story switches perspectives quite frequently (every other chapter), until Sama Rantha, the main character, is able to escape from 'Nightmare' (not a spoiler, I promise!). After that, there is about 70-ish more chapters with the switching perspectives before it realigns as characters unite. Because of this, make sure to read the author's comments. They are funny and will jog your memory.
