Fun short read if you like games, apocalypse themed, off-meta hoarding playstyle lol. Romance is a subplot but the author is quite witty at the end.

Regarding the ending..

... more>>

Someone mentioned they wished that they saw results of the Wealth Halo in the ending but.. I took what Yunling said casually..

"As the lord of Lingyun City, my contribution is not low, I should be in the top three." Yunling looked at "Fortune Halo" and said jokingly, "What's the use of Halo? Can players win first prize in lottery? Can you give me a boyfriend?"

In the last chapter, she got rotten peach blossoms. There was a woman chasing to kill her because her ex-boyfriend dumped her because he fell in love with Yunling. Obviously... That very last sentence... Definitely got wealthy in that aspect, hahah.

Lu Chuan got his wish to meet her again and it seems his memory wasn't wiped so we can all imagine a happy future ending. :)

Pretty good! It was a more unique take which I enjoyed a lot. Colony Sims are my absolute favourite type of game so this story checked some pretty big boxes for me that I didn't know I wanted until I stumbled upon this one.

I will say though that it does "gameify" the story quite a bit which might not sit right with some people when it comes to human life. You're never not reminded that it's a game though. If I had to label it, it's similar to the Japanese... more>> genre like those of Sword Art Online or. Hack// (if you're old enough to remember that one).

Being a fellow hoarder in all the games I play, I can resonate strongly with our MC. That nagging feeling with the need to stock up on everything on the off chance that maybe it might come in handy later or become more expensive. I can understand that feeling of satisfaction.

I noticed some reviews mention romance; there is just a smidge and really only sort of teased at the end. Don't come in expecting any of that!

There were some noble sacrifices made later on that would have otherwise been quite sad but with the reality of the "game-esque" vibe to the whole story there were no tears shed.

Some cons I felt were that there wasn't much character development with our MC almost breezing through 'content'. It might become a bit boring or monotonous with the constantly mentioned NPC shop refresh and frequent time-skipping. I can always trust Dreams of Jianghu to pick a non-offensive, calm (?), lighthearted story that I can enjoy! It's a short one, unique, and funny enough to get some chuckles occasionally. Would recommend. <<less

Lmao I love the mc's hoarding tendencies lol. They're super great and it's definitely a territory building-esque novel with little romance. The romance is vaguely hinted at and we definitely know who the ML is but they never actually get together though it's alluded to at the end sort of that they continue to meet or something.

MC hides her identity from the start to avoid trouble which is super smart otherwise it'd be a pain in the ass. She's also definitely not cruel as she saves people multiple times and... more>> even helps people learn how to live without fighting, but also she's definitely not altruistic. She mainly does stuff for her own benefit like she helps the players gain materials because she wants to hoard them under the name of 'system collection'.

She reminds me of a squirrel with how much she continues to stockpile lmao.

The game is super interesting and it frequently jumps POV so you can see what it's like for people outside the territory or people who are living at the bottom of the territory's social class or whatever. I adore some of them and want others to disappear. Because the MC is so relaxed due to her op setting, you almost feel like you're reading one of those kingdom building games but fortunately the tension is brought back by other side characters sometimes. I actually really love the survival aspect more than like full on action or fighting so it suited my tastes more that way.

Ending felt like a bit of a cop out, but other than that it's good.


basically everything reverses and they go back to the beginning before the apocalypse and I think most people lose their memories. MC does but ML doesn't somehow?

It was nice and engaging. The plot summary may be enough for you to decide whether or not to venture further.

MC (Yun Ling) is a hoarder through and through. ... more>>

She's as ironblooded as the system in setting prices and in condemning players who act unjustly and unrighteously. She is EXTREMELY low-key and farsighted as a Lord. I look up to how she handles territorial affairs cleanly and standing by as people get stronger— letting them learn how to fend for themselves (most of the time with low-key help from her). Finally, she is a piece of wood and if it were not for being particular to paying back favors, maybe anything close to "romance" is non-existent.


About ML (Lu Chuan <3)...


Expect a lot of dowry offerings. He started it and the exchange of marrige gifts between two people came unendingly from then on /jk kukukuku. It's kind of unexpected how ML is so similar to MC— maybe it's because they're both gaming gods? ML is also an "I-don't-like-owing-favors" kind of person. He supports people as much as he can (particularly MC). And frankly, in romance these small things matter very much. Thus, contrary to popular beliefs that romance (including courtship hekhek) here is close to none (partly because MC is more woody and denser than ML), I think it's plenty and much warmer than the big gestures and proclamations.

I hope you'll also like Lu Chuan as much as I did (still do) :>>. <<less

Just finished it and I can say its a great read! I have a very specific standards when it comes to protagonists, and although the personality of the female lead here is not that well developed, there are many redeemable qualities presented in the story. The side characters are given enough screen time, and even some of the extras have their own stories.

I am also surprised with how there is not much drama going on in the novel. Especially the part where ... more>>

near the end, where there are only a few towns left and then ant arc comes on lol. The system announced that there only need to be more than 100 survivors and the world wil be saved. So they all unanimously gave their materials to the MC's city so atleast that city can survive.


All in all, the novel is mostly laid back hoarding with slight tension (?) since there are some fighting going on with a lot of game elements.

Also, kinda unsatisfied with how there are multiple plot holes that have gone unmentioned in the story like:

where did the system come from? How did the ML retain his memories? What about all the other side characters? And most importantly: What happened to Zhao Xintong after all this >: ( (


Honestly, my fave character in the novel even when he only appeared in less than 10 chapters. <<less

i absolutely love hoarding element in apocalypse. And to find this kind of rare novel is a big happy surprise

the romance might be too slow or subtle for some. But I like bow soft it is

the only negative thing I can think is how op and relaxed the MC is. It doesnt feel like a death situation but more just a game. When its not

It’s the short comfort read. FL is lucky and a life-player style which means instead of fighting monster, she’ll gather all kind of materials and make businesses. The entire world suddenly turn to the survival game. FL was beta player and got reward to be the landlord. Therefore, The story is mainly about city-building and completed quests in the doomsday. She’s cute and kind but not s*upid. The novel is not complicated, there’s no much ups and downs.

Surprisingly the automatic translation from the raw website is readable to the point... more>> of smooth. <<less

This novel is quite fun and I enjoyed it very much. The FL is a hoarder and she's kind of the strong, cold, powerful, and quiet type. The side characters are good and it's just super fun to read. The writing is simple and easy to understand. 8/10

This novel is so cute. There is no romance, just a fleeting one, but for some reason, it makes sense.

I enjoyed the story, although it was short and the ending abrupt. Recommended!

It was unexpectedly good although the chapters are short

The MC actually are not at all perfect or op, she also need advices and help from others.

But the thing I don't understand is the ending

... more>>

MC should be a top player right? But why she didn't remember anything, is there a reason why she didn't? And who are the top 3 player?

I mean don't just leave it like that, right?

At least explain about the system details or origin.

And I'm quite angry because of that too. *Fume* *fume*

But the story are good, so~ ill forgive you this time

Naisu, Short but comfortable to read.

filled with details and time skip didn't feel too forced either

MC also does not need to be the best in every field but still do good for the series

and also, no villain or brain dead c*ckroaches in the series, a big plus

Rating 4.5

For those that want the raw can PM me

Just finished the story. Absolutely loved it! The story is written well, I feel like I was reading a Manga. That’s how vivid the explanation/descriptions are! Glad that the protagonist is not too OP. I’ve added this to my list of must reads!

Read the first few chapters and I was hooked! Definitely worth the time. MC is independent and super likable. She isn't too cold hearted and also wasn't kind. If I would to rate her character then it would be 11/10. Her personality is all I prefer for novels (though its rare to Find one)

There is not much romance, ML doesn't admit his feelings neither does the FL (she's oblivious to the ML'd feelings. She considers the ML as one of her benefactor and ML's feeling is only revealed to... more>> readers around the ending of the novel.

Mostly survival based. Hoarding, army building, Npc, food gathering and stuffs like those.

The side stories of the other characters are also refreshing and likable. I especially enjoyed the people's expression and complex feelings who came from other bases to thethe MC base.

Would highly recommend to read if your're into survival games. <<less

it's interesting so far- MC is independent, and not unnecessarily cruel. The world-building is alright so far. The characters interaction is slowly build up, taking into consideration the expected response in such situation. Plus, the translation is good.
