As such I've had to take them down from RRL.

The Jukal Empire’s fleets can’t keep back the aggressive species. An idea is fielded, create Emerilia, a world of magic, Dwarves, Elves and fantasy characters.

They can grow cycles of human Players, conditioned in a simulation of Earth to make them want to play Emerilia. The humans were a mighty foe for the Jukal Empire, but with their inhibitions gone and the morality of a game never in question, they can hold back the tide of the Aggressive species while calling it fun.

What's the best way to control slaves? Make them think that they're free.

Why use that tech on humans?

I have to agree with Meurlorg. As someone who read the prologue, I love the idea, but I'm completely conflicted on the reasoning and outcome. I mean, if you have technology that lets you simulate a virtual reality and RESPAWN people, why would you use such technology on a race you'd want to eliminate? "Give the humans a purpose or exterminate them" the alien Emperor commands. So you use that to justify spending a ridiculous amount of resources on respawning and "leveling" humans instead of your own race!? "Let the humans die in place of my own troops" the alien general comments. HOLY SHIT! You have a huge, highly trained army of YOUR OWN SPECIES and instead of using this expensive respawn and leveling tech on them you'd use it on humans instead? What are they thinking!?!?


Not only all that, the reasoning behind wanting to eliminate humanity is mind-boggling! "We make a peace treaty with one human group yet others raid our ships or attack us, so we'll kill all of them". WTF!? I think I wrote in the comments of the prologue "have these aliens never experienced civil war? betrayal? banditry? criminals? are these concepts really that 'alien' to these aliens!? They decide to eliminate or manipulate humanity because humans have different factions? They then make a "VRMMORPG" for these humans to make STRONGER, RESPAWNABLE, human factions? I really, really, wanted to read this story, but my mind just can't get past the prologue without some help. Please, please! Please help me by fixing these logic errors and loop holes so I can read this story! Going by the 4.6 star rating, this should be really good, so please fix it!

Why is the story of broken up and not know what's going on


Please, by all the gods above and below, do not drop this story. I am enjoying it a great deal, and I don't want to have to add it to the lengthy list of dropped fictions.

Even if your story isn't super popular, as long as you exist and keep going you will accumulate followers by virtue of being the metaphorical last man standing.

To get to the negatives,  your story is not amazingly original. The concept has been done, and done both better and worse. However, it is extremely well done and avoids all of the worst pitfalls of the genre.Just the fact that it is still going makes it good.

On a mechanistic side, your grammar is superb. I can hardly claim to be an expert on the English Language, but I didn't notice any glaring mistakes.



Quite depressed there aren't more chapters! >-<

Damn this is amusing, not really in the mood to write a long review but summarising it. 

It has a very unique viewpoint and not many novels do this anymore or I've just not been reading the right ones, I do not want to spoil anything but the idea is similar to 'The Matrix' but it is far more technologically advanced and they have multiple reasons in doing so such as military potential and scouting enemy territory, I'm still not sure how they managed to capture all the humans and place them in a simulation as this sort of ruins the plot being they're so spread out and hide in so many different places it would be impossible to wipe them out, but apparently they can be captured? (EDIT: It was updated and is included now.)

Also the MC has a high-spirited character who craves normality which makes him overwork himself without realising it and only thinking it's normal or he is just embracing the change and enjoying it, which is far more likely, either way I enjoyed the novel to the point I ignored my previous remark and made a long-ish review.


To those who doubt the book.

I'll be honest, this is my first advanced review on royalrodl and the only reason I feel the need to post it is because of all the hate coming towards the author simply because he posts and makes a small to medium profit on amazon.

I have a kindle unlimited subscription, and found royalroadl when I read his first book. The suspense left me wondering what was next and I googled the series, royalroadl is what came up. I was able to continue reading the book BEFORE it was officially released. This was awesome and something I had never come across before.

The series is a good read, the characters are defined, the plot is somewhat interesting, the action is often and while it needs some variation I would still give the action scenes 3-4 out of 5 stars. However the pace that this author writes leaves most authors in the dust, this comes at the price of MINOR grammar and syntax errors. If any other decent author released at this pace it wouldn't matter if it was then "hidden" behind a pay wall, they would keep up with the story and read it before it was publicly released.

For an author of this quality and this release pace to be put down simply because they want to make a possible career out of writing MORE it simply astounds me that some people can be so capricious and short sighted. 

Now then, if you are on the verge of reading this, read the first book,  even IF you have to buy it. It will hopefully draw you in like it did me and offer you hours of escapism/entertainment/enjoyment.

To the author: Keep up the good work. Hope to read more of your work.


Amazing! Worth to be No. 1

Amazing is all i can say .

At first i thout it would be a mind f*ck story so skipped it

The series was one of the first exposures to LitRPG for me and it was an interesting approach to the idea of a world governed by RPG mechanics.

The characters are interesting and easy to follow.

Very enjoyable.


I cant read "eyes thinned" anymore without getting flashbacks.


Impeccable grammer, spelling, and writing. Occassionally breaks the laws of the universe (when power is being drawn from the heat and cold exchangers). A couple plotholes (if magic is caused by nanites, then how could it work on abandoned planets?). Other than that, I've had a lot of fun reading your work, Michael. Thank you for the story! :)
