Nykooo: Great mind... sometime they think alike (adopting a very humble tone). You are doing very well keep it coming and I pledge my time as a reader to you. Thank you for making it so enjoyable.Spending My Retirement In A Game · C213
Nykooo: It's hard to imagine a 21st Century human being that would manage to become an Omni-Craftmaster. The volume of knowledge, the time needed to practice each craft. At least it's fiction and MC is an older gentleman any novel that try to make a 20 years and sometime as knowledgeable would be bull****ing even more.Spending My Retirement In A Game · C213

Maddawg1808: Not a major issue but you should change the skills description their is nothing wrong with the skill itself but you said in the skill 50% increase in size and he went from 2 meters to 3 meters but if his proportions are the same but now 3 meters he isn’t just 50% bigger but over 3 times his original size so saying he grows 50% taller is more accurate. Also I really enjoy the story this just something that happened to stick out to me.Spending My Retirement In A Game · C194

Grizzlykin: The author trolling us with the first comment... That gotta my first time witnessing that. (if you did it in other chapter my apologies, didn't see :P)
Well I feel like the "game" world and everything in it is going to sleep away from the hands of the developer soon enough... This is one well though plot line anyway. I'm expecting great things coming from this meeting.Spending My Retirement In A Game · C199

Noan: Reminds me of a scary old redneck Hunter dude I came across when I was around 6 at a Wildlife reserve. I went there for my Asian side of the family, family reunion. My sister, myself, and two of my cousins were heading up to our hotel room when he came down the hallway and started cussing us out, calling us “japs”, and pointing his finger at us with spit flying from his bearded lips.
Apparently one of the adults from my family who was in the hallway heard his screaming and came out to herd us into a safe room. It was surreal, I didn’t understand what was going on at the time but now that I’m older I’m just glad it didn’t go any further than that.
These situations can seem forced but that’s because it is forced by whatever reasonings come from the minds of people who chose to hate others for things that can’t be controlled.Spending My Retirement In A Game · C187
Nykooo: I see a divorce in Melody future. At the latest straight after Sophia comes out of the closet. There is nothing forced in that writing. Family relationship can turn nasty so fast. It would not surprise me if Sophia choose a College far away from home. Benjamin is doing his best to live with his daughter choice. The man is and will be, the father of some of the grandchilds. It's hard on everyone, I am sure Melody would like her husband to have a better relationship with her family, that's not happening unless Micheal change and no signs were given that it was possible yet.Spending My Retirement In A Game · C187
Sheriff_K: I wonder.. what if their guild town has a church of the 5 that peaked? 🤔Spending My Retirement In A Game · C190

RuthlessFairy22: "Sorry its so long i was in the zone."
It's possible if you can imagine the character's as real people then start asking questions. Do this while thinking about their mental states. I figure Melody met her husband at her lowest point in life after her mothers death or maybe before that but they somehow connected after that. She might have always felt her family was weird or had other potential friends say so often , and/or she might have hated herself for not being "normal" as she was of mixed race. Any one of these reasons and more could lead her to seek solace in the presences of someone who she deemed completely normal.
Now Michael more than likely he was raised in, yes, a strongly religious family. But there is probably something a little deeper that made him so passive aggressive and verbally abusive. Maybe his father verbally abused his mother often. Always mocking her for her weight, lack of education, or for simply being a woman. And in his mother's desperate need for affection she showvgwtmered love on her son. Her son was an perfect genius angel who could do no wrong. His father allowed this with very few scathing remarks, and slight praise for his wife because he was somewhat proud of his son. Wich in turn made her intensify her actions. This turned Michael into a narcissist. Sure maybe the author has a beef with a few religious people he'd like to vent out , well..... it seems he found the perfect medium. We can guess for forever as to the why and how of the character's actions. Or why the Authors writes every word the way he does, but me ......I'd rather enjoy the story.Spending My Retirement In A Game · C187
