Publisher's Summary

My life was ordinary, but never boring. That is, until a colossal tower landed smack-dab in the middle of the city. 

What should have followed was mass panic and hysteria, but I never got to that part. Why? Simple. I was taken along with 99,999 other people from Earth and dropped onto an unknown world.

Strange beings appeared before us—floating, featureless figures that call themselves demi-gods. They ruled this place, this fantastical world called Gaea. The reason why they took us? Not so simple. We'd supposedly been selected to show that Earth was worth saving from an upcoming cataclysmic event. So, no pressure there.

Gaea is a world entirely controlled by the System, a sarcastic and level-hungry intelligence that granted everyone magical powers, strange classes based on personality or luck, monsters to fight and even loot. It forces us to compete in "events", but no one can really tell us what the endgame is. Climbing the tower and finding out exactly what Gaea is, who created it, and why, could bring us closer to the truth behind our abduction and the fate of our world.

My name is Devin Cain. Join me as I wield Muramasa, a cursed katana that hungers for blood and souls, and a class created to curse players and monsters to death. What can go wrong?

Cringey

Booooooo!!!!
Nothing original, over emphasis on morality, terrible romantic dialog, piss poor attempts at humor.
I love tower climb stories, but the good bits here aren't worth enduring the rest.
It might be for a younger audience, idk ...but its def not my cup of tea

The MC is a wiener.

This is the kind of guy who dies right away in an apocalypse if he's not lucky.

when I listen to the sample, I was initially optimistic. after all the guy seemed pretty intelligent, and pragmatic.

However, once things started going down, he just disappointed me at every turn.

According to the demigod, 100,000 of you were plucked from Earth for his entertainment. as far as you and everyone there knows, everyone else back on Earth could be dead.

That memes that the people there have to start a new civilization. and you know for a fact that 20% of these people are actual criminals. many of which seem to be straight about murderers.

I don't understand his moral dilemma. when the first situation came out, the guy literally tried to murder you. and then admitted to murdering at least three other people.

Just in the first part of the book I kept thinking, "quit being such a pussy". there is no jail to put these people into, and letting them go essentially guarantees either future enemy or at the very least more victims.

In this situation, martial law is essentially in effect. you may not be an authority, but somebody has to be. and if nobody's going to step up, then do it yourself. even if you don't want to actually leave, somebody has to do the dirty work.

After all, every medieval town had an executioner for a reason.

skip this if you don't want to have to return it

This book was a waste of a time. The MC has the best sword in Japanese history for destruction, but is afraid to use it. He complains so much, it's just annoying especially since he let's people who want to kill him go, then complains about it. I don't want to hear anymore bullshit so I want my credit back.

Loved it at first, tired of the karma system

I enjoyed this book at first, but the karma system quickly got on my nerves. The more negative effects he got, the more annoyed I got. He has a class that incentivizes killing but then penalizes him for it. Then getting negative karma even if you are attacked first? That's stupid.

Good, but annoying

Good story, and I get it, it's the author's world and it works different than ours does, but their use of karma annoys me. One of the main things about karma is the intention behind an action, not just the action by itself, mc gaining only negative karma goes against everything I learned in regards to karma.

Don’t listen to most of these bad reviews

If you’re looking for a good time and another series you’re interested in continuing, then read this. It’s a four star for some reason, but it doesn’t deserve it and if you like well written LITRPGs then try it out. While it’s not a perfect book it’s a very fun read, and I’m not one to leave good reviews on every trashy LITRPG.

Hero complex

The author has a hero complex and it’s an absolute cringe fest. Everyone that plays games knows that if you’re ahead you push ahead and grind. This book plays on too many tropes about “not being a murderer” but murders anyway. Has to save mankind but only I can do it. Only I’m allowed to sacrifice myself. The antagonist seems to blatantly control people openly and absolutely no one notices. Yeah it was bad but I had to make sure it was all the way bad. Also he only seems to meet the best of the best people for his party. Plot armor for both the protag and antag

white Knight syndrome

the story started out decently but his personality to kill or not to kill constantly flip flops and him saying killing is never the right thing to do then does so with out hesitating but then won't loot the Pearson he's killed like that's some how worse than the killing its self just grates against me

Can't finish this one

I'm getting so fed up with this book, the MC is wishy-washy and just makes me feel like what few brain cells I have are slipping away the more I listen to this book of silliness

Forced conflict = excuse for broken karma system.

The interpersonal relationships come out in a very forced and fabricated way. The premise kind of sucks as out of humanity only 100000 people get to fight for survival?!??! with the tower people baking in forced conflict and the karma system being utterly worthless as it just about breaks the game plus the level system being " Mc is stronger than everyone because he knows how to crunch the numbers....."

There was no prerequisite for being chosen for the tower and the rest of the population is made out to be helpless nooks. Plus the mc acts like he is a reincarnator without being one making it seem like it's just the author explaining things.
