For milennia, The Elders have gifted pre-technological civilizations with a piece of technology that allows them to transcend the bounds of what is normally possible: The Implant.

Altering reality on a quantum level, creatures with an Implant can gain extraordinary physical and mental abilities. In return, the Elders require wearers of the implant to pass through the Gauntlets - Entire worlds that have been hollowed out and turned into a training and testing ground for the wearers.

A more human side in litrpg

To start I've already read a few of the litrpgs here in RR that has the same beginnings as this one , but none had captured, or should I say demonstrated the vulnerability of humans as well as this one. This a definitely a good take on the vulnerable side of humanity in a litrpg fantasy .

This is a slow building series, and I do hope the author won't abandon the series halfway which is the prevalent option for most of the well written and rather decent stories in this site. Pacing is good and I have not been bored with the chapters that do not have adrenaline pumping scenes. 

Has a rather ingenious plot that branches away from the norm of litrpgs. Anyway its a good start it I highly recommend this to my fellow plebs who wants a realistic, if not more realistic take on litrpg.

An amazing start and good all-around

This story is filled with so much pure survivor grit and character development that you will by chapter 9 really feel for the mc. well, you will atleast feel the pain of living in a tunnel everyday and how difficult it is to survive in a alien world where even a rat is better fit than you. It makes you wish Bear Grylls would decend from the heavens to teach you his ways. 

Almost everything that does happen around the mc have such proper reason & logic that anyone would nod at the mc's actions. Futhermore, the world it self that the mc inhabit (a massive cave system) is well established by around chapter 7-8 and everything that fills this horrible - but awesome - place is amazingly built. You will have no problems imagine the world or its odd/horrible creatures, which leads us to the fight scenes. 

The "fight" scenes have been so far  70% running and 30% fighting, but this is understandable since he starts with nothing but a rock and slowly builds up to primitive bone/stone weapons. After he creates his first proper weapon the running aspect of the fights disappears rather quickly or atleast lessens, and is replaces with a kilt wearing club-wielding survivor that really feels like a true and proper struggle for survival. The fight scenes are simple, straight forward and quite easy to imagine it taking place in your head. The wording in these scenes are one of the best things about this fiction. 

My only regret is that only around 10 chapters at time of this review.

Good story. The fact that the MC isn't just taking every new development in stride is realistic. I just hope learns to eventually adapt to and accept his new reality.

Great Start, Hoping for More!

Amazing prose, full of clear descriptive writing not frequentlly seen on RR.  I, and many readers, took issue with the initial pussy behavior of the mc, however I've come to let it go as the mc changes and the story is just too compelling.  As others have said, this is a slow building series, but in a good way!  

 

I Recomend it highly, unless of course our author has dropped it.

A great and immersive start

A detailed story that doesn't gloss over how dirty surviving with primitive tools can really be.  While it's still very early, I'm eagerly looking forward to more.
