Large chests are said to encompass all manner of hopes and dreams. Men covet them. Women envy them. But one fact holds true - everyone wants to get their hands on some big ones.

The same holds true for one intrepid adventurer - a strapping young lad by the name of Himmel. Armed with his grandfather’s trusty longsword and the dream of being the strongest, he sets out on the journey of a lifetime! It is sure to be a long and dangerous road, fraught with danger! And it all starts with a simple test - reach Level 5 in the dungeon called the ‘newbie zone’ and earn the right to become a full-fledged adventurer!

However, such things get hopelessly derailed when his adolescent mind beholds an exposed chest for the first time. A fateful meeting that would inevitably lead his life in a direction he never even dreamed of!

This fiction is written, maintained and owned by Neven Iliev. It is also a participant of the WriTEr's pledge.

Classic storyline, Decorated with amazing plots.

It is undoubtedly an Epic tier story..😁 as it is long... lucrative...and twisted.

The author totally breaks the style by twisting the first chapter by revealing that the story's MC is a mimic when he devours the First charecter.

It's few salient features are..

  • One of the best fiction online featuring a non human MC.
  • Great charecter description and development.
  • A plethora of monster, races and creatures.
  • Detailed and neat system of physics, magic and science.
  • Great way of storytelling by the author.
  • No grammatical errors, the author does a great proofreading job.

The author had taken great care not to mess up the storyline and timeline... The story follows up any left out details on the next chapter perfectly.

Kudos to the author 👍 it is a delightful experience...

😁 I'm a Lv 100.maxed out scribe and following are the results of the appraisal of this Story.

Type: Epic Fiction

Humour: 8/10

Action: 9/10

Twists: 10/10

Charecters: 9.5/10 (Boxxy is 10/10)

World & System: 8/10

A must read! Totally Recommended!

It's as  Boxxy puts it "TASTY".

great story with tremendous system-building

(as of Cloak and Dagger 4 / chapter 278)

As many other reviewers I was put off by the title first (I don't like graphic sexual content) but then decided to give the story a try because of the great rating. I was pleasantly surprised and binged the whole story (and the 'small chests are fine too' side story) in less than two weeks. It's great! There is much less pornographic content than I feared; it occurs quite often but is usually restricted to a few sentences, those parts are often written in a comedic way and are an important part of the characters' personality though, so it can't be helped.

Style: I'm not able to assess the tiniest subtleties of writing styles but in total the style is good, I like it. The story is written in a third-person narrative, varying between the personal points-of-view of different characters (mostly the main characters, but sometimes a side character or even a one-time unimportant person/victim) and an impersonal observer. Thus the reader knows more than the protagonist and it is possible for the suspense to grow step by step.

Story: The >4000 (calculated) pages so far tell a captivating story that starts with a tiny and simple chest in a tiny and simple dungeon but both the main characters and the story grow step by step. The world setup is good and the level/skill system is extensive and fits very well and logically together. The story is full of exciting action but also has comedic elements and heart-wrenching moments. 

Grammar: Not perfect but fine, sometimes there are spelling errors.

Characters: Most of the important characters are non-humans, so their inner workings and morality are different from the norm. Some have quite simple motivations because of their origin but nonetheless they are written true to their species and follow their drives in a credible way. Over time they grow/change on the basis of their increasing stats and experiences realistically.

In total, an awesome story. I started to support the author on patreon and maybe I'll also buy the paperback books.

My favorite story on royal road

When I first saw this story on the top of the most popular page, I thought that this novel wasn't really my type of story. And boy was I wrong, everything from the grammar with few to none mistakes to the story that takes a different route to the typical royal road story with surprising plot twists that don't just appear out of nowhere to advance the plot. The characters are well made and written which makes the story never get boring. I would 100% recommend everyone to at least try it out because you definitely won't regret it, probably.

Novel is exactly what you think it is

To be clear, this novel is well written, especially when compared to other web novels.  However, all of the reviews saying this novel was such a surprise or not what you think, I have to wonder about those.  The story does begin with a "twist", and it's clever.  However, as the name and picture imply, this story is filled with sexual themes.  Moreover, a lot of it is pretty disturbing.  I do not recommend personally.  However, if you like those sorts of novels then you might like this, as it is well written.

Tons of fun if you can cope with the sexuality, which really lessens the further in you get.

It's just fascinating to follow a protagonist who doesn't cater to conventional morality at all.

Holy... sorry, I could've sworn I only began reading your work somewhere in the beginning of this December, but I've already caught up!

Well, now that I've got free time to spare on things other than binge-reading, here are my views on this story so far...

Absolutely awesome! Seriously, I would say you've outdone yourself but it's clear that you've gone through quite a bit of a change throughout the work. You can see the improvement rather vividly - especially after binging on all of it for a few weeks straight.

Honestly, your story was the breath of fresh air I didn't know I needed. The things I had been reading, I suppose, had been getting fairly monotonous so it's phenomenal to see something so different!

Though maybe that's because I've been looking in the wrong places? I have to say that I would not be dissatisfied if I were to find more glimmering gems like this one more often!

I think I've said enough now, as this is stretching a bit... so, in summary: outstanding work! I look forward to more-or-less 'live' updates now that I've caught up with you.

 Couldn't recomend this story enough. Don't have the words. Masterpiece, is the best i got.

Boxxy is the most anti-heroist anti-hero that ever anti-heroed. Take that to the bank and sign it with your nuts!

 My favorite story by far. I love your writing style and creativity, so keep it coming! 

As you have probably noticed, the lowest score I have to give is for your grammar. It is almost perfect,  but I recommend taking the time to slowly look through your chapters and make sure everything makes sense, and not make sentences overly complex, or long.

That's about everything I have for constructive criticism, the rest is praise. Keep up the good work!

Funny, Good, Genious Writer

Pretty good Story -Times

Nice Read -Wall Street Journal

would be like this, if the story were reviewed by them.

The characters are pretty consistent, the story is intresting and funny.

Sometimes it takes weird turns, but it is normal for this story.
