- Traumatising content
The royal bastard of House Vasquer, Argrave, changed after his stay studying magic at the Tower of the Gray Owl. The sickly man's awkward posture and cruel behavior have been replaced with a neat dignity and acerbic wit. Though once listless, he now strives towards his goals with a life-or-death tenacity. Most come away thinking he seems to know too many details about too much. Few can claim to know his motives or his goals.
Yet behind that confident appearance, the primary contributor for an open-world RPG's wiki battles existential dread and things far beyond his ken as he struggles to adapt to a grim, gothic fantasy world mirroring his favorite game. The prospect of fighting against a world-ending calamity loses all of its appeal when it transitions from entertainment to reality. Argrave is spurred towards unwanted heroism to preserve his life as he struggles desperately to keep this sinking ship afloat.

The story draws you in immediately from the first sentence to the end of the first chapter. A natural flow and just the right amount of exposition. I am nothing but excited to discover more that this world has to offer. There isn't text upon text of exposition or info dump either. Rather each new development is presented in a albeit convenient yet believable manor. Bottom line is, it's fantastic writting with a logical progression. Couldn't ask for more!
i dont much care for fan fiction. Especially when i dont even know the original. Shows what i know. This is great.
The MC is put into a game that he knows extremely well. He is put into what i gather is a minor villain. So he starts with a lot of mistrust of him.
Its readily apparent this author knows how to write. He is able to tell a story with excellent descriptions and good dialogue.
Very much looking forward to how this goes.
This is quite early to write a review but I am overcome with gratitude. My rating is because there are characters, and they interact as people do. That's all. Quite rare.
I will flesh out the review when I catch up. Seems there is a word limit for basic reviews as well.
I ran out of patience with Azarith and Primal Hunter, and I found this. The main character is sensitive, evolves and relies on his companions and friends. The companions are interesting and have their own issues.
Only sad that I have caught up with the work. I will come back in a few months and catch up with the great story and characters.
I read a lot of books, and a lot of stories on RR. I'm ok with the RR stories, and most kindle unlimited as well, being of lesser quality than many of the books I purchase. This story is way above what I normally read on RR.
The main character has a personality, and shows intelligence. He plots, plans, manipulates and outwits people. His only edge is knowledge of the game, and he takes advantage of that. He has a lot stacked against him and isn't going to be able to fight his way out.
Overall, I'm greatly enjoying the book.
The basic plot of this novel will feel familiar to people who've read other books on this site, or mangas, but this rendition is very well executed. The prose is high quality, writing is skilled, and characters are engrossing. I highly recommend giving this novel a read. What it lacks in ground breaking innovation plot-wise, it makes up for in being very enjoyable to read.
First story I have started reading on this specfic site and I am absolutely loving it so far. From the begining introduction to the latest chapter everything has been well explained and detailed. The way the side characters are portrayed are awesome and the MC himself feels very real and not forced/super fake like other stories I've read. Then there is the story itself which so far has been amazing and leaves me hoping for more. Kudos to the author and thank you very much for the phenomenal work so for, keep it up. (As of chapter 19 and of course all my own opinion)
The story Had so much potential but the characters turned soon to be almost 2D and flat. The MC didn't even have the right drive yeah it's going to end he is coming so I have to protect everyone and sacrifice myself while doing so. I mean why? It is the right thing to do but how he is doing it is the wrong thing it's like everything is on me, But think about it you are a man inside a game you played I don't know how many times. You can do whatever you want to gain so many powerups than the game's main characters which don't have anything special except a backstory or a "big heart". You know so much knowledge even more than the gods yet you are scared and throwing yourself into death left and right. I mean why. and another thing is how easily he was killed. that was something else yeah he is a human living in the 20's century but for the benefit of all he killed a full group of people.
The story is fantastic but the character's actions are unreasonable sometimes.
The author has the talent really but it all feels like smooth sailing without the hardship he expected when he thought about everything.
You gotta at least add something like mind control for his way of thinking.
And another thing, He is the son of the king even if he's a bastard he is still the son of the current king why doesn't he simply work for their death? or work with the rebels to give them an advantage for a better position than his current one?
(written by a fledgling reviewer so sorry for any mistakes)
One of the top 3 stories I've found on this site. The MC is relatable, the characters fleshed out and likable and the story is interesting.
The magic system works well and the world has a lot of depth to it, though the scaling is unlikely to ever go over high 7-A tier (large mountain level).
If you are trying to nitpick at something then it would probably be the lack of info about Gods, but that's probably going to be solved as the scaling progresses.
Overall, if you want a a high fantasy story I can only recommend this one. Kudos to Nemorosus!
Reviewing this at the end of "Volume 1", and man has it been an awesome ride so far. The general premise is not new - the MC finds himself in a game world where he has intimate knowledge of the coming events, and sets off to try and change things for the better. Despite his info advantage, the MCs journey is still challenging and it's fun to tag along.
Style - The work reads very easily. Prose and pacing are smooth. We have some POVs from side characters but they are well placed and always help build out the world or let us see the MC from the outside.
Story - Not a new premise, but extremely well-done regardless. Although things usually go the MC's way, they always feel earned. There are clearly multiple events happening concurrently, and we get a good mix of focusing on the MC and getting snapshots of how everything else is evolving in the world.
Grammar - Not much to be said, it's very good. Have not noticed any major typos.
Characters - The MC is well-balanced and interesting. Side characters are well motivated and help a lot to flush out the feeling of the world.
Overall, this is fantastic work and I'm looking forward to continuing reading :)
