Mark of the Fool: A Progression Fantasy

People are super critics for the weirdest stuff on this site. 

I am not a super critic. The only times I will write a review is when I feel a story really deserves recognition, because the truth of RR's ranking system is anything less than a perfect 5.0 has a negative impact on the story's rank and I'd rather not do that to people.

Anyways: Are there some things in this story that are not perfect? Well, yeah. Duh. It's a web-serial you can read for free on the internet. There are going to be a few tiny problems you can nitpick. But are any of these problems enough to make me feel this is less than a perfect 5 star story, relative to the other garbage I see all over this website?


This story is fantastic.

It updates frequently and it's well thought out. The characters are interesting. The lore is great. The world building and magic systems are really fascinating. And unlike so many stories on this website: the protagonist is not a murder-hobo. Each chapter also does a good job of introducing another useful piece of information you can build with, which snowballs as the story continues and paints a larger picture of the world at work. There is also no real "filler" to be found, which I've found is extremely common once authors start realizing they're popular enough to make money.

I'm not sure exactly how to describe this story, but D&D meets harry potter, meets something extra... that's probably close. This is all just my opinion (for whatever that's worth these days) but I feel this is a really good story. I recommend it, and I wish there were more stories like it.


The strange adventure of an undead archlich and his many minions, as they set out to... be the best tourists they can be.

Grand plots, heroic adventures? Heck with that, there are pictures to be taken, and holy water spas to relax in. This is a strange, meandering, very funny, adventure. Props to the author for including artwork and some pretty creative methods of pushing the story along.

The Daily Grind

If you've ever worked in an office, you'll probably enjoy reading this.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

There is no Epic Loot here, Only Puns.

I enjoyed reading this. Very funny, very wacky, a good mix of serious and comedy. Reminds me of "wandering inn" so if you enjoyed that story you'll probably enjoy this one too.
