Can you recommend me something a long the lines an Isekai, pretty decent Romance but not so much that the story revolves around it, pretty strong mc (he doesn't have to be the definition of strength itself tho), no harem, not a wimpy/dense/dull/idealistic mc (as long as its within reasonable range I'm ok with it).
Also, if there is romance id rather it be just one love interest instead of it being multiple of them.
Btw I'm new to RoyalRoad so I'm not quite sure if I should be searching for such a novel on here. Anyways, thank to anyone who replies!
Mine is an Isekai novel called "A Forgemaster of Wayland". You wont have a problem finding lots of Isekai on this site.
I think I can recommend 'He Who Fights With Monsters'
My own novel is not Isekai
RR has a lot of Isekia and reincartion novels. Pro tip, go to advance shared and include tags add either of the two tags, you will find similar stories. The list below is my personal recommendation of a year of reading Isekia and similar works.
One of the best authors of RR, Similar story. It's almost like Beginning after the end but the MC personiltiy is should I say different? And the writing style. Andur has like 10+ frictions now, few with the same ML and FL in a multiverse.
In Lokis Honor
This..is Isekia, has romance, Strong MC but not overly. It ticks all the boxes but the author and the story is on a league of it's own. I would recommend it but at your own risk, read the discrpiton and reviews.
I know, a crafting MC. And we didn't get to the romance part yet. But it's slice of life, reminds of Art and his family. The magic system is unique and the MC struggles through it.
It's quite literanlly another version of beginning after the end. As some one was inspired with one and worte the other. Very well written.
The gilded hero
This is not what your looking for. It's Isekia but realistic, no romance atleast at the time of this post. But something that would give a reality check for wishing to be an Isekia MC.
Tree of aeons
Again not what you asked for, reincareted as a tree so no romance but damn if you don't try it, the world bulding is amazing. Skills, level, charaters and plot, to notch.
A new book, only 11 chapter out but shows promise.
I have few more but they don't feel the same as the beginning after the end, they have the same tags, Isekia/reincarnation, Romance, magic, etc but the stories have different vibs. You can try the ones above for now. The list below for others look at this post.
Most are reincartion but all of them are great book from a year's worth of reading.
