Rs is that Nova Terra Doesn T Pretend Differences Don t pretend differences don exist I could get behind that in principle if the levelingskill system was robust enough to make the starting differences not matter for those skilled enough and motivated enough to work hard Instead due to his weird physical disorder in the real world the main character starts off immediately the strongest character in the game And even users who are the elites in the strongest guild in the game who have been playing for years cannot face off against him head on How and why would such a game be entertaining If your paralyzed old out Of Shape Due To Injury Or Illness shape due to injury or illness a neurological disorder etc tough luck Your in game character will suck and no amount of skill or work will be able to overcome those limitations Where is the RPG aspectThere are no levels ust masteries which seem to be skill proficiencies however the main character makes zero progress in any mastery at least as far as we know by the end of the book Instead he s almost as OP as One Punch Man without the comedy and self awareness Xavier Lee has a medical condition which leaves him living well protected but isolated in real life The new treatment for his condition has him getting immersed into the new game world Nova Terra where he gets the freedom he has longed for all his life And let me stop right there because seriously I don t want to spoil the story with my synopsis If you are like me you will definitely be not too enthusiastic after reading the blurb because I actually almost missed out on this series because of the vague summary Oh I know it s not that bad but it didn t have much of a pull except that I get to read about Xavier and his life in Nova Terra That s why though the cover pulled my eyes every time I saw it I hesitated to pick it up till a friend of mine G told me that it has settlement building YAY for me So I dived in right away and I was so glad I did Because I am going to follow this series to the end The story reads like a fantasy than a litrpg because of the short stats sheet I tend to skip them anyway so it wasn t a big loss for me The world and playable characters though similar to the other books sit well with the plot and had me reading the book without getting bored or feeling like I have been through similar scenes I really wish it was a longer book because I am so enamoured with Thorn Xavier right now that I can t wait to read the next book Hooray for me since it is already available I really enjoyed following Thorn s ourney as he gets acclimated to Nova Terra I especially liked his fresh but innocent outlook at times Oh yeah at first look it seemed that he is way OP but I didn t feel it was overly so Instead it ust seemed that it was a trait invaluable to the plot There are a few parallel story lines involved which I feel will keep me immersed in the coming books Oh one word of warning I know I said it has settlement building but it
doesn t crop up until in the future books So I t crop up until in the future books So I to do with getting to know about the world the mechanics involved and Thorn in this book which didn t disappoint me at allMy one line review More fantasy than litrpg Surprisingly enjoyableMy rating 55My reread factor 45 Good LitRPG I ve not come across a werewolf gamelit sorry before so I wasn t certain where this story was leading me not completely Thorn s RL experiences prior to oining the game of Nov. Ra runs parallel to the real world and promises to fulfill the fantasies and desires of those who dare plunge into its mysterious depths In order to adjust to his new life of uests skill mastery and magic Xavier will have to.
Seth Ring ï 4 DownloadIt s a great book It was the book that made get really addicted to LitRPG s and for good reason There s a bunch of character development the world itself has really addicted to LitRPG s and for good reason There s a bunch of character development the world itself has interesting elements in it not only the VR world but they re real world too Oh Man I want the next book so badGreat story great main character and really well thought out mechanicsThis is one of those books that I will not say much about as I don t want to give out spoilers Read it Right now this is how I see this book We have giant who s bone are growing at a rapid rate They want to use nanos to fix that problem And yet that s not realistically possible it makes no sense Come on What about the skull the height But let s say it s possible The guy goes on and on about how he can t move how the slightest movement will tear his skin and then he gets home and starts practicing martial arts What Let s not forget this book was labeled as Litrpg and yet no real stats very minimal I need those receipt Jk on the receipts But honestly It would have been a great book if it wasn t too out of the way of possible Note as of writing this I m 25% into the book My review might change to reflect It could either ump up or down Let s see Ernest but unchallengingThis book has an interesting if not necessrily new idea a damaged teen is thrust into an unfamiliar MMO world and learns how to handle themselves through the game If that s all you want
You Ll Be Finell be fine this bookThe downside is that this book borrows heavily from existing tropes and mechanics Thorn oins a parry that contains a holy protection knight an ice witch a rogue and a priest They re WoW classes with slight renames Many other stodgy MMO mechanics abound as well copper silver gold and platinum But only gold really matters
The Book Focuses Abook focuses a on how people fight specific cultural styles moves and weapons but not why people fight Thorn s motivation seems to be this is fun and I m here Not exactly a personal stake beyond him being trapped while his flesh body is scientifically perfected outside the game I wish that he was fighting for something besides this sure is a gameThe world itself was also somewhat mediocre It s a generic european city with a few chineese weapons and a generic forested countryside with generic rpg monsters werewolves kobolds and earth elementals The people are similar as well Thorn becomes Lord Greymane another bit borrowed from WoW His friends are Mina Jorge and a paladin sorry Holy Protection Knight who Main Tanks named Ouroborus One of these things is not like the othersAnyway it didn t feel new or exciting I didn t walk away craving a new world where I could escape reality I didn t experience a cool new magic system or see a cool new settingI ust read about a large boy grind kobolds and wolves and then do a werewolf dungeon Book oneMistakes I didn t find any Very well writtenPlot Born with a date form of gigantism the MC enters a vr game for a two year period while his body undergoes some serious surgery This book is mostly about getting used to the game making friends and being betrayedCharacters I like the MC and can t wait for him to get revenge on those who betrayed him9710 OP main character hard to buy premiseThe primary mechanic of the virtual reality system Nova Terra in this series is to base your virtual stats on your physical body The point the author makes through one of the characte.
