Blessed Time

by CoCop

Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Traumatising content

Some disasters can only be avoided if you know they’re coming, and even then, sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.


On Karell, you are either blessed by the gods, granted a unique power and the ability to gain experience and levels, or you are forgotten.  Micah Silver was a boy picked for greatness.  Chosen by the gods to bear a mythic power, he longed to take his place amongst the heroes and legends he grew up reading about.

Unfortunately his primary blessing only allows him to travel into the past by sacrificing his class, wealth, and levels.  Even if Micah's unwilling, fate has a way of forcing you to take up your destiny, possibly at the cost of everything.  Over and over again.

Worth your time (*wink wink nudge nudge*)

Reviewed at: Chapter 30 - The Grove

Great story. Please read and support!

Style is clear and consistent, and flows excellently. No infodumps, etc.

Story is engaging and interesting - events provide emotional twists by changing perspective on past events.

Grammer is fine. There is occassionally a missed full stop, but otherwise almost perfect.

Characters are believable and alive. A little jarring as the protagonist has background character interations that readers somewhat miss out on, but this hardly detracts from the story. Some decisions are dubious, and difficult to truly justify even within the personalities involved. 

SPOILER:

 

 

I think that his decision to hide from his parents is a little irrational.

You might see that many of the reviews on this story are at chapter 4 or 5 or so, and normally that's a bit suspect.. How can there possibly be enough to give a story 5 stars only a few chapters in? Well... Read the story. I found this story while drudging through the 'Recently Updated' section, looking for something that might be updated frequently, because I read so often, and came across this gem. The cover is good, the summary is good, and the writing is damn good! 

The system within the story seems to have pretty clear rules and workings, with higher skill levels surrounding a subject giving a better class related to that subject, with spells costing more and more, but being able to specialize(at milestone levels) in order to make casting a school of magic cost less mana and such. There are political on-goings, world building, growth, and resetting that growth, only to grow stronger than before. I'm honestly not sure what else to say. Read this story. Read the first chapter AT THE LEAST.

This is a lot coming from someone who doesnt usually enjoy LitRPGs! The writer shows the stats without making the story seem like it revolvs around them, which seems to be a rare quality for the genre. I would give it 6 stars if i could def rec!

As opposed to Mother or Loop with frequent resets, or other stories with just one, Blessed Time appears to be planned to have a pretty good duration between resets. Which is nice. 

CoCop has good technical writing as always, and the MC isn't an all powerful badass. His gift is.wholly OP, but a slow burn one. 

Also I am biased because CoCop decided to head off my usual request for otters at the pass and included them in a sort of cameo tribute and it's freaking awesome.

The execution is really good. The MC acts in a logical way, and his development doesn't seen rush.

I recommend the read to everyone who loves fantasy. Period.

Fantastic story. Wish it had a 100 chapters. 

It will get pretty dark at times, but this is great writing.

Yep, you should just read this. It's in the 99th percentile when compared to everything else on RoyalRoad. It's some good shit. All my feelings are basically said in the other top reviews, but I did want to add one particular thing to the conversation.

I made this review to to reiterate on one of the points from Kuroinfinity's review. The Time Loop does negatively impact the pacing and character development. The secondary characters and the character relationships just don't feel as real as they might otherwise. However, I will say pacing issues are an obvious byproduct of time loops, assuming they're central to the plot.

But Mother of Learning also had a Time Loop and pacing issues (yes, it does), so why are the characters weaker in this story???

Well, it's because of how the Time Loops are handled. In comparison, many restarts in MoL occur in the same location before Zorian explores further, allowing readers to dive deeper into the many character relationships and the outside world as we discover their different backstories. This makes the world feel vast. Encountering them in different contexts would lead to new discoveries about the character's backstories, or potentially even trigger a weird series of events. In BT, it feels like the mc is never in one spot for too long, so we are just missing out on all that world building and character development.

Reviewed at: Chapter 24 - Ritualist

I started reading this morning, got to chapter 24, wanted more, so patreon'ed it up for ten more chapters, wanted more, but nothing more to read...

It's a great story with a great system and like, I want more.

Definitely a novel that has really great potential, the main character and the world has depth and the story is extremely interesting. The only thing that could ruin the potential that it has is the introduction/implementation of tropes from the typical power trip novel. 

I read it over a second time because it was so good lmao.

Good premise with well written characters.

Sometimes I feel that the story is a little choppy, but that might be from my lack of sleep.

A few grammer mistakes here and there, but not a lot.

All in all, a good story.
