Synopsis

Darkness reigned before the dawn of light...

Who would have thought that his mundane life would take a chilling turn one day? Trapped in the monotony of his office existence, Simon suddenly finds himself thrust into an extraordinary realm beyond imagination.

Death was merely the beginning...

When Simon opened his eyes next, a fantastical landscape vastly different from his familiar office cubicle awaited him. A marvellous sight, a different world.

The cruel life...

Althaea, a realm of merciless brutality where the law of survival dictates: eat or be eaten, kill or be killed.

Born not as a human...

Simon emerges as a demon, a being shunned by humanity and embroiled in a relentless war between humans and demons. The Seraphims, protector of humanity, and the Demon lords who rule across all demonkind. Amidst all the chaos, he must navigate the treacherous hierarchy of demonkind as one of the lowest-ranking Demon Nobles.

The unique power...

The art of dungeon creation—a golden opportunity to ascend above the chaos and establish his dominion.

With power comes adversaries...

Now he must delve deeper, unveil its hidden powers and forge alliances that will dictate his fate. Fight rival demons, vengeful seraphims, and ancient evils who were up to no good.
.
Join Simon on his odyssey through a world teetering on the edge of destruction, where every step forward is fraught with danger and every decision could mean life or death.
Will he rise to the challenge and defy the odds, or will he succumb to the unforgiving darkness that threatens to consume him?

    i m not good at writing review so just my honest take on the novel so far. -pace is good most of the time but sometime quite slow -i don know about others but i really like if you give more detail out for the character. just my opinion on this one -i believe when theres a great battle about to happen you could just delay some of the chapter and then boom mass release so we could feel the fight more closely -thats all, for me this novel is good

    Despite being over 500 chapters in length you get the feeling the author has barely scratched the surface of what is possible. So even though I'm making this review now I still consider this in the beginning stages. Without further ado, let's begin... WRITING QUALITY: -Overall the quality is legible meaning accurate grammar and sentence structure most of the time. How do you know that your reading is poor? One way is because of the need to read over the text you just read not because of its complexity or depth but because you didn't grasp what the author is trying to convey. You won't need to worry about this. STABILITY OF UPDATES: -The author as far as I can tell never stayed in the double digits for weekly releasing nor dropped below 4 chapters for long if at all. This is a sign showing the author's desire to stick at it for the long run compared to the amount released I find this a better gauge of stability. Basically, the author so far has not given us a reason to doubt. STORY DEVELOPMENT: -The short answer is you always find yourself coming back for more. The longer answer is the beginning you are brought to some of the highest peaks of power which shows the vast gap between where the MC is now and the progress to be made from the bottom. With his dungeon as a center point, you see the characters venture out exploring the world similar to a character in a game bringing color to grey areas. This is a deliberate decision the author has made compared to other stories that have the MCs base of operations move with him while he scales the ladder of power. Neither is inherently better just more of a preference this author shows. -Not only do you see the MC develop the story being the one we follow but also many side characters and future villains scheming in the background giving you a foreshadowing of events to come. Overall great job. CHARACTER DESIGN: -The author does a masterful job of making sure each character is fleshed out so they add to the MC and the greater plot. Everyone close to the MC has a distinct personality, side characters you meet along the way regardless of duration feel like real people, and the villains are good villains in the sense they make you root for the MC and his companions. -Many people who don't like harem have legitimate concerns that those characters will either be useless or take away from the greater plot. You don't need to worry about this because so far the author has eluded to a few potential harem members however the plot demands your full attention so romance is not the center but instead the byproduct of a compelling story you read unfold. -Another concern many readers have is stories that have harem members surrounding the MC lack other companions which works sometimes while other times it leaves the reader wanting. I would say you are given a myriad of companions helping the MC, hindering the MC, and being there to flesh out the world. WORLD BACKGROUND: -As I wrote earlier the beginning does an excellent job of showing how vast the world is and how much potential the author can use to develop the story and characters. As the story progresses the MC is shown more of the world that seems never-ending which reminds me of peeling back the layers of an onion trying to find the nonexistent core. -The background is tied in obvious and mysterious ways to the MC letting you make your own judgments while giving you more bit by bit proving how much and little you really know so far. Overall I can't recommend this novel enough. Give it try if you're looking for quality content.

    hmm... iit's like those cultivation novels, full of face slaps, dumb enemies, young masters and his lackeys, and the most annoying thing that I found was the east of chapters describing how beautiful the immortal ice phoenix is ... that was plain annoying, seriously, so many paragraphs in different chapters saying how her curves are soul mesmerizing and so on... well if you like cultivation novels, just without the cultivation part this might be a novel for you... Chapter 84.

    Keep in mind that this was written when there were only 75 chapters released. I think the author is doing very well. The world is pretty unique compared to other RPG novels. -contrary to other "I reincarnated into a game" stories, you can clearly see that the world was indeed a video-game (f.e game items that are clearly made for intermediate players that want to level up their other characters faster) -dungeon system is pretty good -Protagonist buffs are somewhat balanced Story doesn't disappoint either. -Our MC doesn't start as a super weak being- that means we don't have to waste 20 minutes reading how the mc advanced from a bug to a humanoid being. MC transmigrates, and 5 minutes later he's already wounded. Characters are 5 stars -The first arrogant young master we meet doesn't wait for the MC to get 10x stronger than him, he attacks the moment he's ready. -First female protagonist, FINALLY isn't someone who falls in love with the MC the moment they meet. Based on what we've seen, she's an independent person who doesn't depend on the MC to deal with every emotional trauma she's got. World Background 5/5 for now, hope it doesn't change for the worse.

    The author's creativity and imaginative skills are at par. The writer thoughts are well projected and the plot itself is intriguing. The language too was easy and there wasn't much hassle in understanding. The background and character design was vivid. I feel the chapters are a bit shorter and the cover can be a little interesting. Overall, it's an interesting novel to read.

    The Story actually started off oretty good and kept me interested for most of the way through to the current chapter.(which at time if review is about 280 or ao chapters) But the story really starts to go downhill around chapter 200 as there forced events and character decisions that make no sense. New characters that are just annoying and dont make sense for who they are suppose to be. The MC who I had originally liked, i started to get annoyed with and started making choices that went against who he is. Its really dissapointing cause i had hope for this as there aren’t many decent Dungeon Lord type novels. There are other problems in this book, but for me the major turnoff where i just could not continue happened around the 200’s and i think specifically around 220.

    Interesting enough for a read, great concepts but the execution is bit odd Instead of scaling stat values to a lower range we start with random numbers in the hundreds when stats in the double digits would have done the exact same thing, it's like Diablo 3 stats in a novel where you can reach 1T and it means nothing. The DP system is even more ridiculous, Author thought numbers had to be big to have any meaning when 100DP could have been made to be something extremely difficult to reach. When Irene is introduced the novel becomes much more annoying to read as well, at least 25% of every chapter with her is describing her beauty because we, as readers are too dumb to have understood from the introduction, no, literally every sentence with her has to describe her beauty...I just skip over any areas where I see her name now, occasionally I check back and it's a waste because all I was missing is worthless info about her appearance. Expect to encounter chapters wasting 50% or more detail describing how amazing, mysterious and powerful she is for absolutely no reason other than Author thinks we're all idiots. This novel may as well be a tribute to a woman he likes called Irene. World background seems really interesting though, the only other annoying part is how he introduces characters and names, instead of normal descriptions we get "HELLO BOBBY, EVIL DRAGON CAT DOG FALCON MAN GODBEAST THE THIRD, TWICE REMOVED, KING OF TOKYO, LORD OF DRAGONS, BREAKER OF CHAINS, MOTHER OF DOGS, LEADER OF BLACK CAT GUILD, MOST RESPECTED ANCIENT BEING" and equally ridiculous introductions that are somehow supposed to be taken seriously Spelling is good, grammar is decent, that's saying a lot for Webnovel so kudos to Author. All in all, decent read if you have nothing else.

    INITIAL THOUGHTS: -Ive recently caught up again with the chapters I stockpiled and decided that I wanted to give potential readers a window view of this great novel. WRITING QUALITY: -The short answer is Top Quality. -The longer answer is the author has done a great job of keeping the writing understandable using proper grammar structure which for what I call “Original Authors” is something that doesn’t always happen. When this novel plateform first started and for most of it’s inception afterwards you’ve had Chinese authors hiring translators who have a high level of English proficiency. This lead to a quality of content most of us readers got used to and only really noticed with new authors exploded on the platform. Overall 5/5. UPDATING STABILITY: -Consist from beginning to now. Averaging 1 a day or 7 a week it’s much better then many authors who seem to burn out after releasing at least twice that amount. Overall 5/5. STORY DEVELOPMENT: -Anyone who has read a fair amount of novels knows that their isn’t one universal story development. We read many decent to masterful stories with varying plots. What we do know even if we can’t put it into words is when a story progresses badly. This novel happens to fall into the great category. -The Main Character (MC) is transported to a cultivation world with many underlying mysteries that accompany his beginning. Most of the time we stick with the MC seeing his progress while at times be shown other characters that add to the overall world in a way that connects to the MCs progress now or in the far future. This is great for a number of reasons -One is how plot points are not only made in the short term, but also in the long term making many events that were a mystery unfold naturally. So while some plot points seem too distant to connect at first get gradually uncovered showing there deep implications. Two many people introduced in different factions and power levels are having a major effect on the story developing in ways we have yet to understand. -Overall I see great things for the story now and later. 5/5. CHARACTER DESIGN: -Short answer again is great. -The MC is positioned in the world as someone within and outside of it. Living a life as a human before and a demon now is taking the best of both worlds so he becomes someone who can make a impact. Ruthless and kind. Distant to some close to others. Prideful yet humble enough to recognize his faults. One of my top MCs. -Close characters are multi dimensional showing there support for the MC and the greater story development. Slowly but surely we see a group form around the MC each bringing color to what could have been a solitary life. I don’t want to give spoilers, but I’ll say that 2 females closest to the MC each bring out more sides to each other’s character development. Overall 5/5. WORLD BACKGROUND: -Deep and mysterious. The MC is slowly unveiling through his exploration what seems to be a complicated world. Many races known like Demons, humans, and dragons while many more briefly mentioned. Also various Apex wars that have happened for reasons unknown. The list goes on and on leaving wanting more. Overall 5/5.

    really worthy of 5 star ratings. The plot is incredibly good and so is the world setting. I especially like the dungeon creation system and also the character designing. The MC is also good at adapting to change of surroundings. This story has a great potential due to it's unique concept and also the plot is fresh. I recommend it to anyone who wants to read a good story with a new plot that is not like those clinche stories of heros transmigrating to save the world

    While I have not caught up with the stories release I’m at around chapter 175 as I write this. This has been an excellent and well written story thus far. Very few minor grammatical mistakes to be seen. While I can’t say much about the stability of uodates as I’ve not caught up completely. I see the updated mark consistently enough on the story to know that it is being written by the so author still. Story has been progressing well. There have been times that I’ve felt it’s been slow and there are other times that it picks up the pace. I am not a big fan of the repeated paragraphs from previous chapters in the new chapter that this author does. It would only be useful if the author didn’t update for like a month and I needed a refresher on what happened previously. As it is I consider it unnecessary padding to increase the word count of the chapter. Characters so far have filled what I consider the anime cookie cutter. We have our kind hardworking but determined ML, the cold but warm FL (whom gets described every time she shows up. We get it she’s as pretty as a goddess.) And now we have the cute bratty little sister character. The world is very interesting and vast and we aren’t overloaded with facts. They are wonderfully peppered throughout the story. So we are learning about it along with our ML. Which I enjoy immensely. All in all a very solid good book. Worth reading and spending your fast passes or coins on.

    It has been a month or so since I last read this because I was waiting for more updates, so I could spam read for a while. When I was last here I don't believe it had a "harem" tag? Which I could've not seen and was just curious if this was a recent change because I loved the world this author created as well as the story. The M.C. seems to be kind and loyal especially to those who are loyal to him. I also really like the M.C.'s characteristics, however I'm not really into anything related to "harem" tags in stories. I am continuing to read and hope that it's something I can at the very least deal with in the story. Thank you for the time and effort you put into making this novel.

    For those like to read good novel with story this is best choice. This novel is different from usual dungeon type novels which reveals around level up and heram. It gave more preference to story then any other thing ( which makes novel good to read ). One thing I wise change is make chapters large ( while reading I feel like when I started to read and end in few seconds
