This is the last sentence I saw before I lost my mind.

And it’s one sentence that I’m still holding on to.

That’s how the journey of killing monsters and wandering in search of all kinds of rumours began.

And it will continue.

Until the day I get out of this damn game.

Not a masterpiece but definitely a good story. If you're tired of reading KR & JP cliches then you will love it. There's no harem, no continuous girls introduction, no romance drama, no half-measure MC, no damsel in distress plot, and no other usual cliches.

Every side characters we get to know will not be forgotten, they will have their own moment to shine in battle till the end. They will not become bystanders to cheer on OP MC.

Novel is about 180 chapters long, so its short but fulfilling story. There's... more>> no abrupt ending.

Translation's quality is good for about 80 chapters but after that it slightly dropped. But it is still far better than MTL.

Anyway if you are tired of cliches and want something different then you should try it. It is a flower among the sea of tr*shes on this site. <<less

I'm actually a sucker for any mercenary/adventurer fantasy where the MC will go an adventure, meet new people and colleagues, go to different places and take quest, and fight any challenges. These kinds of settings is actually my most favorite in korean novels or any novel itself because typically, the MC doesn't have a strong background just like if he has ties with nobles or aristocracy, usually started from the bottom and then grinds up to the top by his own effort, and also not tied to anyone or anything... more>> and has the freedom to do whatever he likes. I also think it's because these kinds of plots resonates with what I value the most in my life which is to be free. I've read this during 2020 together with 판타지 속 용병이 되었다, another mercenary adventure fantasy which also satisfies my cravings for these kinds of plot. Honestly it's a pity that this kind of set up/setting is often getting neglected which is the reason why it's so rare to find a series with the settings from the above I mentioned. I hope there's gonna be more novels that will be created with a plot like this, also I do hope this 판타지 속 용병이 되었다 will be translated as well in the future. <<less

Finally, a hero's journey story that doesn't vomit Stat windows, skill lists, and the MC wasn't reincarnated as the villain. How crazy is it that this type of story is so rare on this God forsaken website?

Anyways, look forward to a classical epic tale with a stoic MC and actually enjoyable supporting characters. Paced decently and a consistently narrated world; I highly recommend this series

I'm enjoying the story. It's very much a setting like "The Witcher", with monsters and magic in a sort of grimdark fantasy world. Ruon travels as a mercenary, killing demons and monsters to gain power as a part of a larger "quest" that he believes will eventually let him go back to Earth.

The strengths of the story are also its weakness. Ruon travels around doing quests in an "episodic" way: which is always a new encounter to read, but leads to things being disconnected. Besides a few characters, every event... more>> / story / character will become irrelevant after the short arc. He also tends to treat things like a game. A grand demon targeting him is nothing more than a boss monster and the gods manipulating him is just the questline, it makes it hard to invest in what's happening when the character experiencing it isn't. <<less

So a Korean guy gets isekai'd into The Witcher series style video game world. Pretty friggin' cool stuff this novel, very well written. Reads like a d&d campaign with talented and dedicated dungeon master.

10 out of 10, would recommend to a friend.

So, friends, stay awhile for this tale is worth reading.

This is it, a real adventure isekai, no harem, no nonsense, it’s straight up move from town to town, kill monsters and get level ups. The whole story is one whole world building. Still there must be a plot to be followed, and there is but flows right into the adventure, the MCs movement dictates how he reacts to the plot, not the plot pushing him around like most stories, it’s incredibly fun to read
