A man wakes up in an unknown world with blue screens, levels, classes and absolutely no memory of who he is. Did I mention giant crabs? Worst of all, a series of unfortunate circumstances lead to him adopting an... uncomfortable... name.

Will he live and thrive, protecting nature, facing down enemies and reaching the apex of strength as an indomitable warrior in an epic lifetime of adventure? Or will he be turned into crab food on the very first day of his existence?

Join our unfortunately named friend and find out... Adventure's waiting!

A high-fantasy litRPG adventure, with only light-to-medium RPG elements.

There was a twist, and the twist takes any emotional weight out. It's still a fine story, but it lost the spark it had for something great.


Sorry but chapter 27 made me unfollow. If you ended the story at chapter 26 it would be a great short story. I simply don't like the added genre. I do actually enjoy your writing style. If you ever decide on writing another story then I will be checking it out.

i was watching a youtube video and saw this comment, thought it fit.
"Crabs amaze me. They’re the perfect life form, a tank made of legs and living hate-armor. It’s not just about their physicality, though; it’s the soul of the crab. See, no crab in the bottomless history of the sea has ever questioned itself, doubted itself, worried, or been afraid. A crab is pure motion. A crab is pure id and unrelenting forward force. Crabs invented the word violence and they will scuttle on the surface of the world while the red giant of Sol creeps closer to devour everywhere we’ve ever known. They will look into the sky and clack their claws and there will be no fear."

 Really good until then, but the VR completly destroyed the story for me.


While this seems like a crabby(crappy) story the initial impression deceives. Sure in the first few chapters I thought, what an inapropriate title, couldn't the author have been more thoughtful and all.

But I now think that it shows what kind of story it is, and while not totally light-hearted or even mild it is quite funny and good.

The Grammar- no problems, the story is just surviving at the moment and following a quest, but it surely will branch out soon.

The style is a bit harder to describe while the author is, and also tries to be funny, in no way he always is. In chapter 16 now for example I sincerely laughed because it was hilarious but in the previous chapters less so. Otherwise the action and status system is not bad either. 

Some things I don't like are the previous life memories, the reason for that is simply because I don't understand the merit to the story but if they conveyed something relevant to it, it should be fine, well I only mildly dislike them right now.

The characters are pretty well written, in the moment I really like the Orc. I also like that there are Lost people like the MC as well, even though we haven't met any yet.

As is common this fiction doesn't have many chapters yet, but as it has a frequent release rate, I don't have any problems on that side. What puzzles me though is, that the rating isn't better, maybe it is because of the earlier chapters, in which case.

Read on!

While the early chapters may not exactly be funny it gets better, well concerning comedy. The moment where I really liked this fiction, was the scene with the fox, as it was very heart-warming.

So in summary, it is a good read, don't get discouraged by the early chapters, and Phac will most likely be phacked sideways by his luck.


This story balances progression, characters, and plot with humor in a really nice way.


It has its flaws I'm sure but this is one of those rare stories where every part is so good and works together so well that I never really noticed any of it's flaws.


The grammar is solid.  I'm a bit of a nitpicker in general so even in stories with a tolerable number of mistakes I tend to notice plenty.  I got through this without noticing a single one, so if it has any they're rare and minor enough that I'd bet you won't notice many (if any at all) either.


The characters we've met so far seem multidimensional enough, interesting enough and simply fun enough to carry the story.  That's all I have to say really.  I don't read stories for the character drama or whatnot but they're more than sufficient, and I've even gotten a little fond of them.


The plot so far seems to be the perfect balance of longer term goals and short term action.  I hate when chapter one results in a giant untenable quest that will last the entire book/series, but having no longer term goals makes a story bland IMO.  This has a good balance of difficult but feasible medium/long term goals with shorter term impediments/encounters and action on the way.  It doesn't drag on like some stories do.


Regarding the writing style/humor.  I don't like humor stories.  What I mean by that is that stories that are all about the humor but lack substance underneath it fail to engage me.  Some people love those, I just don't.  This is a story with substance that would be very worth reading even with all of the humor stripped out.  It's also funny enough to be somewhat engaging by that factor alone (although again, that's not really my thing).  Most importantly, the humor never interferes with the substance, which is a trap many stories fall into.


As far as the system/litrpg elements go, I'd give it 4/5.  It's solid, and sufficient.  It drives the story forward and gives that wonderful feeling tangible growth which is the only reason I read litrpg stories.  It's nothing crazy or all that novel, but it's got enough new to be interesting, enough familiarity to be understandable and it's sensible enough that it never got in the way or ruined my immersion.


The protagonist seems to be growing stronger at that perfect pace of not-so-slow-its-boring and not too fast as to seem OP.  There's not too much deus ex machina kinda level gains or anything (there's an initial lucky title at the very beginning but it's no more odious than most any other litrpg).



Overall?  It's a solid story, a fun romp, and an enjoyable litrpg with a dash of humor.  I expect I'll see it sitting high in trending for a while and in the top 10-20 here on RRL soon enough if the author keeps a good update schedule and the quality is consistent.  It's not perfect 5.0/5.0 "best story ever", but based on RRLs standards it's deserving of an RRL 5/5  "definitely worth reading for anyone who enjoys litrpgs at all"


i will preface this by saying that you should absolutely give this a go, well written, characters are lifelike and have real personality, the interacting between characters and the world is exceptional and is an overall engaging read.

now, i will also state that  i believe the author has made a few massive mistakes that completely detract from the experience of what is an otherwise excelent story, this is my personal opinion that is also is shared by many others.  i would personally recommend skipping chapter 27 and outright ignoring certain other chunks of the story for your own benefit. the story is not ruined by these things, but definitely is all the worse for their existence, once again, in my personal opinion. 

i will definitely be keeping up with this story, it is too good to put down, the slow release rate is a pain, simply because i want to read more, it is one of the few stories that gave me genuine emotions, having become invested in certain characters. 

Keep up the great writing!



Pretty entertaining story, should be on trending soon. Looking forward to reading this


Decent grammar, good pacing, a pretty hefty dose of humor thrown in for good measure. The amnesiac MC in a game-like world is a little bit overdone nowadays but this is as good an example of the genre as you're likely to find if it keeps going the way it has been.

Good :) Just Ignore some parts enterily and its basically the same.

Reviewed at: Bonus Chapter: Carlos the Zombie

If you read and like how the story goes, don't get discouraged after chapter 26.

You could simply skip over those types of chapters and the story is basically the same. Author himself said that he won't focus too much on that part of the story, its just something extra.
