Synopsis

Scorned by the world he was born in, Arthur had no other choice but to learn how to deal with it. Yet, just as his hard work and dedication were about to pay off, the hate towards his origins brought him to his death.

But that wasn't his fate. His future wasn't supposed to end with his head cracking against the edge of the stairs. His bloodline could not die as that would be against the wish of the universe itself.

Thrown to another world, he found himself in a situation where the skills and craft he honed would be no longer of use. His patience, his creativity, his logical thinking were no longer in demand in a world where strength reigned supreme.

Or was it?

"My system is overpowered. I'm not shameless enough to deny it."

"Scores of women and slaves all around? Those are the wishes of a naive kid, not mine."

"Lower the price of those apples by a quarter and we will have a deal!"

"Dear, stop, I cannot hold any longer!"

Jump in and follow Arthur's adventures as he proves that even the illogical world of sword and cultivation has its own rules. Laws, that one can learn, laws, that Arthur sets off to use to his own advantage!


****

This novel will have some comedic elements, but it won't be the core of the story. I also won't hold back any punches when it comes to dark humor, heavy elements or morally ambiguous aspects. If you are looking for a fckboy/edgelord/cliche, then his novel is not for you.

    As the author of this novel, if I won't give it five stars, who else would? In a sense, this is a run-of-the-mill cultivation novel with a small, original twist to it. Or rather, to every aspect that might seem simple on the surface, when you will first read about it. Arrogant young master? He will act his age and status rather than throwing everything he has on the Main Character just because. If someone has high social standing, they need to know how to act the part. Female lead being a jade beauty? Yeah, but she won't start as op throwaway that MC can use to grow, but an actual partner with her own problems and a different view on the world than our dear Arthur has. OP main character oblivious to his strength? Yeah, what would a cultivation novel be without a strong lead? But being strong in a cultivation world... is a relative thing. Do you remember the saying, a frog in the well only seeing a small fragment of the sky? With the MC transmigration from an earth-like world, he won't know the basic common sense of the world. And while some of his novel-sourced knowledge will apply, some will not. Constant reset with each rank? Yeah, the ceiling for the absolute power is even higher than you can imagine (unless you read my first big novel that is *wink wink*), but it comes with its own rules and flow. TL:DR - This is a novel that's simple on the surface, but deep underneath it. The MC has its own view on the world, created by the hardships he went through in his original life, and those won't randomly disappear once he starts his new life. Yes, there will be sm*t. It wouldn't be my novel if there wouldn't be. Yes, there will be romance. I consider it an integral part of every story. Yes, there will be moments when MC will be unreasonable, will act stupid, won't be the strongest in the room, won't know anything... But how can he grow if he won't face challenges? Q/A: Q:H*rem? A: No, no and no. I'm not saying MC will only ever see a single girl, but he won't live in polyamorous relationship. Ever. Period. Q: Update rate? A: Between 1 and 5 chapters a day. I will try my best to do at least 2 a day, 3 on a good day, 4 if I'm motivated and 5 if I'm trying to prove something to myself. Q: Bonus release for power stones/golden tickets? A: I might consider it, but I won't promise anything. I have a bad history with racking up chapter debt to the readers so I would rather be cautious about it and have consistent, high update rate Q: Any perks for loyal readers? A: If I take notice on you, we might think about it. Q: Does author replies to the comments? A: Yes I do and no I don't. If a comment goes in depth about the chapter, asks valid questions, points out foreshadowing or shows readers own idea of the story, I will likely reply to them. It's a pleasure to read them and I won't leave them alone. But a comments of the "thanks for the chapter" "first" "your moma", while appreciated, won't get much of my attention. Q: What is the answer to universe? A: 44, or so the joke and google says Q: Why do you have smol pepe? A: Your momma cried out something else last night Q: Do reviews get deleted? A: If they are valid, point out problems with the story, tells your opinion, shows the readers what you like and what you dislike, then I do not touch them. But if they are 1-2-3 stars with emojis or pure insults in them, my finger won't hesitate before pressing that delete button. Q: Are you going to go premium with this novel? A: Yeah, I am. As much as some of you may hate it, in order to write as much as I do (and this isn't my only novel, mind that) I need to somehow provide for myself. Times, when my parents did that for me, are over. Q: Why 1 star your own novel? A: It's my personal protest against WN biased and useless rating system.

    As of chapter 109 (latest as of 06JAN22) So far a fantastic read. the story started strong and continues to move strongly in a good direction. Characters are memorable, and continue to build depth. The strongest part of this novel, the plot IMO, is riveting and engaging thru and thru. I really cannot wait to read this thru to the end. Definitely a gem among rocks. I HIGHLY recommend giving this a shot.

    Detailed review without spoilers. A few things here will come from the first 5 chaps so it's mostly spoiler-free. TLDR: This novel is immersive and stands out from the rest of the system novels with the usual tropes and clichés. Characters act their age and personality and there is always character development going around. If you want to read something that will make you want to read more, read this. Writing quality: Sloth probably has one of the best written story from a grammatical point of view. However, some of the things felt a little too explained. As much as I like the detailed descriptions, many people will skim it. But since I am writing an honest review, that's a 4/5 for me. Story development: the pace is quite well and you'll feel like going on to the next chapter just to know what will happen next. One of the best things is that the young master trope is not here. In simpler and spoiler-free terms, a young master acts his status and title here. Another 4/5. Character design: Now that deserves a five. Be it the MC or Mia or any other character, they are created really well. And if you don't think Mia is adorable, I will personally come and hunt you with a knife. Updating stability: Another five out of five. As mentioned in sloth's review, his updating stability depends on his mood but 2 chapters are almost guaranteed. No problems here World Background: Personally, there are many things left to be discovered but I think that the world-building is rather slow. It takes quite some time for things to build up but from the point of a reader, it's a 3.5/5 from me. Just keep on pumping chapters sloth. Your dear reader

    Pros: - A more complex world that what fills one chap. - The system it's not typical, in fact, it seems to be pretty mysterious and doesn't give straightforward information bout its use. Cons: - A beta MC that cant really stand for himself unless he's feeling right for doing it. Insecure but powerful. - Plot is...slow. So slow. Too slow. - A lot of bs bout how to feel for pple but also beating pple just as fine. - Hard to empatize with MC (imho). To sum up: cant keep it up. Too much BS. Going elsewhere is better.

    Started out strong, went downhill really fast. In just the free read (55 chapters) we get: 1. Broken system 2. Shy, slave girl who isn't really shy at all 3. Young master targeting said girl 4. MC asked to accept the girl as slave, says that he wont accept her as a slave but as a PARTNER (?) and decides he will protect her against everything, without any reason 5. The girl falls in love with the MC after 2 weeks of doing nothing but training, the MC then starts straight up SIMPing for the girl, she throws herself at him naked and he refuses because 'i dont want you to love me because i helped you' 6. MC makes a fortune selling KETCHUP recipe 7. MC is forced to hide his power due to some stupid reason 8. Sepration of MC and FL with reunion around chapter 300 (why even introduce romance if most of the time they are separate?) 9. OP sect elder, who can do whatever he wants and even patriarch of the sect lets him to do so, accepting MC and the FL as direct disciples right at the beggining Then the worldbuilding - it's pretty nonexistent, we get no descriptions of locations, barely any descriptions of where they live, whats around, nothing. Character design? It's bad. MC is a beta simp, FL is 2D at best, side characters aren't even worth mentioning (through the first 55 chapters you meet senior brother and medic who are there to only introduce FL to MC, the sect elder who takes them as disciples and is the man buying the ketchup recipe for 1500 gold coins, two bad elders scheeming with the young master and 3 lackeys - all of them just for a chapter to get faceslapped) Story development itself is slow and cliche. Stability of updates can and should be praised. Honestly? The idea was good, but the amount of cliches and 2D characters ruined it bad.

    Originally I left a scathing review, but didn't want the author to get demotivated or think that I don't appreciate his work. But I cannot recommend this particular novel. Reason: The "clever" thinking of the characters are not actually even remotely clever. Most of the decisions are wrong. MC revealed history and mindset clash. From what we know of the MC, he should probably be a lot more logical and ruthless but he is definitely not. Also, system is average and plot armor is heavy. Basically, I had to stop reading due to frustration with all the decisions the characters were making. They were all just harming themselves and not really thinking things through.

    there is nothing about this that stands out over other system novels. the characters are not interesting. The system seems very boring and not fleshed out at all. All it does is show his stats. I dont see how the other reviews speak so highly of this novel.

    It started off good with the initial stage, making money, developing the romance. However during this phase there are alot of confusing scenarios where the readers are clueless to what is going on. But soon as he lost his V-card it really starts going down hill. Romance side MC started acting like a beta, almost fainting at the FL cuteness like the cheezy Rom-Com Sugar specials... Then from then on it was nothing but Plot after plot against MC. The 2nd arc I got through the I guess the beginning, but couldn't proceed. He went from Mia being his slave to him being the slave of Mia and his boss. He never gets a chance to make a decision as everything is forced on him into this arc. I did a batch unlock to ch 150 ish but 122 is it. I just can't take where the story is and can't push through it.

    The start was very good but the end of the second volume (ish chapter 100) suddenly turns extremely dark. I quit because of this was too dark a turn for me. Story should really have a tag for this.

    This story is a case study in how to write a story that is technically well written but fail in every other aspect. The world building is nonexistent, 100+ chapters in and we don't know anything about the world, it feels like author tries to tell us zilch about the setting. We don't know anything about geography , or cultivation systems or anything at all practically. The MC is a detestable little guy without many good points to his personality. He is spineless when he is not going berserk and attacking and killing everyone on sight. He is brainless when he isn't using his pre-transmigration knowledge to make a quick buck by creating and selling stuff like soap and French fries. He is someone that can justify getting a man gangraped because he snatched his bag filled with soaps. Probably the only positive thing I can think of about the MC is he is skilled at creating stuff from Earth to sell to inhabitants of the nameless cultivation world he is in.

    Sorry but I can't understand the thought pattern of the Mc. His actions are so illogical. Arthur is such a beta male, who doesn't even understand why Mia is sad, after 3 Chapters where she constantly tries to apologies.

    Book starts off really strong, but it fizzles fast. It feels like the first ~50 chapters were edited and then the author stopped fixing minor grammatical errors. Character wakes up in his new world with lots of questions and we expect answers, but then he just never asks anything, so we're extremely short on world-building and even shorter on any semblance of a logical progression of events. MC "drops to his knees" dramatically like 1x every 5 chapters for a while? Some basic things that could be fixed and would help a ton. Progression-wise, the author sets up a decent magic system and sets the stage for our characters to progress,

    there is some problem here, near ch 128(when he fu**ed everyone of the skyladder sect) the system said he has now unstable foundation and in the later ch he was at the peak of 6th stage but suddenly he broke through the 9th stage and enter the 10, it was not explained when he fixed his foundation nor when he increased his cultivation nor the author described the stages. initially mc tried to full all his stats before advancing but later its like he don't care anymore and the stage where his meridians were unlocked, it was not explained just how many meridians can be unlocked in human body. only early 3 stages of his cultivation were explained but then he just skyrocketed through them while having a unstable foundation...

    writing style is ok, pacing is horrendously slow especially because chapters are short, characters are decent, except the antagonists, they're mostly two dimensional.

    Honest reviews are here.. The beginning of the novel is soooo boring, soooo slow, and almost no story development.. What is even worse, there is no detail, explanation, or anything as if the author purposely leaves the story to become a cliffhanger.. I have been patient to read until Ch100, and then I give up.. It seriously does not suit me.. I like OP MC and fast progress MC, but nothing like that here in this novel.. The system also barely helps MC..

    Long story short, this book is absolute garbage. Its a book for ppl who get off on an MC getting abused with never a satisfying revenge. MC gets drugged, raped, separated from his girl, and is constantly just reacting to abuse.
