New Era Online, NEO, is a full immersion virtual reality game. Oren Berman, an intelligent player got lucky early on in the game's release and discovered a new discipline, Mana Manipulation. Because of the way the game is setup, he has exclusive rights to it unless he chooses to teach it to others. Teaches others for real money. Makes $10K/month income. Quits normal job.
He even forms a guild based on this school of magic. He’s betrayed by student with scroll that kills the MC character and resets him as a level 1 monster in a far away place in the game.
Oren wakes up as goblin. Uses his understanding of mana manipulation to get access to magic and explores caverns only to discover them already occupied by a goblin tribe.
Now he has to not only convince this tribe to accept him as one of their own but formulate some plan to get his revenge on the people that betrayed him.
This is a great story. You’ll love it if you like community building or town building stories.
The first 27% of the story is about Oren, the main character (MC), getting trapped as a goblin. Him figuring out that the goblins he’s been killing his entire gaming career, actually have culture and a tribal society that he can use to grow in power and get his revenge on those that wronged him. He does a bunch of quests that reveal how being an monster is different than being a player and there’s a storyline about how the game company can’t just save him.
From about the 27-82% mark of the story, it’s really all about community and town building. The MC founds his own goblin village and there’s a bunch of new game mechanics that revolve around spawning new goblins, building structures, and balancing village resources to accomplish goals. It’s all very interesting if you like games like Civilization, Warcraft, Starcraft, or Total War.
There still personal power development for the main character and some combat scenes and an external threat from some hobgoblin tribes but for the most part in this section it’s about town building stuff.
At about the 82% mark, the story shifts away from town building and there’s a more standard narrative as the MC tries to save someone he’s come to care about and has to face off against the big bad villain.
I had a great time reading this story but I’m also a big fan of those resource management civilization games. If those kinds of games don’t appeal to you, you’ll find the entire middle section of this story boring. There are tons of details about development trees and pages and pages of descriptions of building functions, specializations for goblins, class development, resource requirements, and more.
Score: 8 out of 10.
The main character starts as an obnoxious guild master who is overthrown and cursed into reincarnation as a level one goblin. The story covers his trials and tribulations as he refuses to give up and stays playing an "unplayable" character instead of letting the backstabbers win!
This book is one of my top 10 litrpg stories and I have read almost all on Amazon. Highly recommended to all litrpg fans.
Over 800 pages almost 900, you get your moneys worth that is for sure. I highly recommend this book I am glad I bought it!
Top international reviews
Instead of the usual set up where a gamer is a gamer this one is from the monsters point of view and trying to survive.
I liked that there is only the game and no real distractions of the real world and the main character is outside his comfort zone and very much at a disadvantage.
I enjoyed the insight and detail of the world and how something is built from nothing. I thought the main character was a fool at the start and by the end I was happy for his success and sad at any misfortune.
The pace of the book is good and the tables and other game information is helpful.
I can't wait for the next book.
Interesting ideas in living in a immersive world!
Anyway once the story takes off and the book really develops the quality of the read increases dramatically. Detailed and insightful gaming world. Interesting operating systems etc and a character who is evolving.
I really like the fact that some of the "DM" side of the logic is questioned and explains some gaming mechanics, which are interesting to explore.
I like the fact that the character didn't go up 50 levels in five chapters with impossible boss kills and I like that the tweaks have advantages and disadvantages.
Really good read and ready for the next in the series.
The building/planning aspects are great and with this new way to look at RPG it has me wanting to get back online.
Will be looking out for the next volume and hopefully won’t be too long to wait.
My only suggestion is a good proof reader is required as there regular glitches in the text but maybe that’s Guys fault ;)
If you enjoy a story about a MC who loses everything (pretty much) and then through hard work and a bit of help starts take it back then this is a good story to read
How NEO works is well thought-out and how it changed due to the actions of the MC was enjoyable.
In some ways it deals with the concept of what is reality and what makes a person a person. I liked how these concepts came together and look forward to seeing how it develops in future books.
Story is well paced and gives a real sense of peril for the main character at points, and the sub-plots are mysterious and engaging.
Long winded review
This book has a couple of flaws, there are some spelling errors and sometimes the sentence structure feels a bit strange, However its also fun clever and it introduced me to the litrpg genre, I first read it a year or so ago and i've read probably a couple hundred different litrpg books since and so far none have surpassed it in my eyes, if your nerdy and like settlement building stuff and magic using, shrewd protagonists I would 100% reccomend it depsite the few issues
The character developments is very interesting and a gradual build. The main character is not a Mary sue but does have a tendency to be rather lucky but he is a 'lucky bastard' after all.
Definitely going to buy the next book. It's got a lot of potential as a series.
Except for when you hit one of the (many) grammitical errors or the wrong tense being used etc etc. They jarred me out of the story each time which made it difficult to fully immerse yourself into the world.
If the author got a good editor it would improve the work an awful lot.
You'll be glad
