An ex-slave from the imperial slave corps looks for a new life in a minor city on the borderlands of the empire. The small dungeon there promises fortune for the delvers skilled enough to survive and the ex-slave is confident he can suceed and make this city his home.

But his past is hard to leave behind, especially when the mistakes are branded onto his face. In the city he will find enemies and allies, from High Priestesses to lowly farmers. In order to make his mark, Raksha will need to gather courage to break from his past, and find a vision for the future he can hold onto.

*The gender-bender tag relates to a world with gender roles reversed, rather than somebody switching genders.

A gender role reversal world done right

Reviewed at: Chapter Cinco

Gender role reversal worlds tend to have this one main common problem, the gender roles aren't actually reversed. It may seem to be at first glance but their are all of these little inconsistencies that make the world feel like they simply wrote a typical story and then afterwards flipped all the pronouns and tried to run with it. 

THIS STORY IS NOT LIKE THE OTHERS! 

This author properly spent the time to flesh out the little details of a world which developed where the threat of monsters can almost only be handled by magicians which can only be females by genetics. You see the developed matriarchy in the small details of what is considered attractive in females vs males and how gender roles are assumed. The MC as a former criminal slave was assumed by literally everyone to have slept his way through his sentance to stay alive. Meanwhile, when they talk about how the presumed female lead is a commoner who is a mana spring (assumed to be strong mage material by context) is basically being forced to marry the local nobility to be a breeding sow in hopes of making more mana spring babies, they are literally unable to think of the word to decribe a female whore and sow as it is just that unheard of in their world. It's the little details in the character interactions like these that make this feel like a realistic, immersive properly gender role reversed world.

Meanwhile the MC feels like a proper ordinary denizen whom didn't get some super cheat where he is the only male capable of magic in a world where only females can use magic or something like that. He is just a guy that is smarter and works harder than the next guy while making the best of what fate the world offered to him.

Look past the title

Reviewed at: Chapter Diez

The title might put some off, especially if they miss the gender tag. This story is set in a fantasy world where gender roles are truly reversed, due to men being unable to use magic. The MC was enslaved for theft but worked his way to freedom - unfortunately this is rare and most women assume he slept his way out.

It's an excellent story with a well thought out world where women have the power, literally. They hold most positions of power and have most of the say in relationships. They ogle men and good women offer to escort men at night as they don't want them to wander alone. The characters are people, not ciphers or caricatures. There is a lot of backstory and detail that makes you want to know more. 

Grammar and spelling is excellent, I have not spotted any errors.

A Good Story with a Bad Title

Reviewed at: Chapter DieciNueve

They say don't judge a book by its cover, so don't judge this book by its title. The story is an interesting examination of gender dynamic in an inherently gender biased magical system. Its implications on how this would effect a society are explored in traditional royal road rpg settings we all know and love. There is little to no smutty scenes as the title seems to imply. So don't be turned off by the title.
