This story isn't all fives; there are no perfect stories. But the fact that this work has such high marking with almost 2000 ratings, but that 20 negative advanced reviews can skew it's statistics like this is bull sh*t. I'm just here to try and even that out a bit.

Lucky to have given this a shot

Reviewed at: 6. Wind Runner

As someone who usually skims a ton of stories in search of genuinely well-written content, this is like striking gold. By the end of the first chapter you're introduced and dropped into a pretty impressive take on litrpg, with a strong emphasis on realism if leveling and skill systems were actually integrated into society. By the end of the fifth chapter you're thinking "wow, I'm really lucky that I ran across this story". 

Just give it a shot and you don't be disappointed. This is one of the first stories on this site (along with Menocht Loop and Forge of Destiny) that actually capture the feeling the author intends to capture, I feel. It's a great ride.

This story is a true pleasure to read. Characters are alive, believable. MC is a likeable, good guy with decent morals. Plot is original and intriguing, reminding me a little of adventure books from my childhod. And style is exceptional. The first person perspective is a hard one to do well and here author managed it.

Beside the above this story has something which most others on this stite lack - well-written exposition. Author introduces main character allowing the reader to know him, paints the outline of the world in balievable way and drops subtle hints about future. This all made excellent setting. I would gladly buy a paperback of this story.

I've been holding off on a review, but won't deny to have been avidly waiting for every update.

With an interesting and unique take on selling your soul, as well as a beautiful real world adaptation of skills and levels, Seaborn is a real gem. The leveling system is not used as the be all and end all of the story, but is used as another way to express the character's growth.

The story has flowed well and been very engaging so far, and I can't wait till Seaborn properly takes to the high seas with a crew!

A refreshing change of pace

Reviewed at: 35. A Captain's Choice

Probably my favorite story on RR.  The world is original and the general context - ocean/sailing/navies - is a refreshing change of pace from land-based settings.  The system is well-explained through incidental reflections and observations from the MC, without getting bogged down.  The MC is likeable and human, not OP, and some struggles but no excessive drama or self-pity.  The story does move a bit slowly in the middle third, becoming a combination slice-of-life and training montage, but the first and last third really draw you in.

The first arc of the story is complete (I've finished reading it on Patreon).  I look forward to the second arc!
