Awakened MMORPG monster made with thought behind it.

Every chapter so far has been compelling, if a bit short. The setup is interesting, MC is not as generic as it might initially seem, and the conflict seems to develop naturally, if so far slowly.

 

Materia-Blade has the experience to pull off a long-lasting fic, and so far, he seems to have put in the work to get there.

Engaging Characters, Good Pacing

Reviewed at: Another World: Two

The story is fun to read, but it's maybe not as much litrpg as it sounds like going in.  Which is great, as far as I'm converned: litrpg is a pretty stale genre and this is DRAMAtically more interesting.  This isn't a story where the MC is immediately rewarded for doing literally anything, so if that's what you like, go read one of the thousands of effort-free versions of that premise already on this site.  If you'd like to read about a character actually *earning* their strength, this is for you.

So good I nearly stopped playing RuneScale.

 

Do be warned, on chapter 13 now and so far it's been a lot of tradgedy. According to author it'll get happier soon though.

This story is great! It's got a lovable protagonist, nice prose, good progression, few infodumps, and writing that makes me really feel for the characters

If you've ever read Cinnamon Bun by RavensDagger, this story is what Broccoli would be like if she were an NPC in a VR game. 

The characterisation is superb, the mechanics are intriguing, the grammar flows, and the story is engaging. All of that is also wrapped up in Gell's adorable bubble of cuteness, of course. This story is not one you should miss.

Read it. It's for your own good.

The intro is really vague which may be intentional on the authors part.  I'd recommend fixing that as I Almost didn't bother reading the story because of it.  but I'm glad I did check it out.  It's about a monster in a game that's a person, or maybe an AI.  It's muddling itsway through existence trying to understand what it is, and why its world is the way it is.  Great story, great characters, worth reading.  With a complete story done at the same level the author should think about publishing this.

A new unique take on the LitRPG genre

Reviewed at: Twisting the Knife

I'm hooked on LitRPG but I am always wanting stories that provide a new take on the genre, not just another Isekai with an OP MC doing better than everyone. Fourteen chapters into this one and it just keeps getting better, with engaging characters, pathos, and suspense while still written in a light style. It is clear that the story is heading towards a big shift as it moves the scene to the wider world and more character interaction. If the writing and plotting so far are any indication, the author is up to the task of keeping this story compelling and fun as it develops.
