This novel could have been great but it suffers from a "tribulation:" that a lot of these discreet ancestor novels face.. the main character not being the main character. See if you dont know what that means let me explain, in this novel it feels as if the MC is a side character in multiple other people's story and it does not really change and as the story goes along the ONLY thing he does is to vaguely get stronger (though we never really see the effects of that due to him relying on the system) and helping his descendants and thats it, there is really nothing that benefits him other than faith in which he invests back into his descendants. So dont waste your fast passes.
Very similar to Ancestor Above. Basically.. bland characters that seem to have no life of their own, it's wonder how they survived without ancestor (it's like MC growing NPCs). They don't even ask themselves whether it's really ancestor or some demon/devil from other realm. There are also overused expressions and everything being solved by the system. MC is pretty much a slave to his system (system gives "advice" or "discounts" at the right time and he just buys/uses/saves/solves). I have yet to see a very solid novel of this genre with MC-ancestor that has no body and acts as as family protector with proper conversation flow and characters build up. But that would require an experienced author who can write good novels without systems, like the author of Protect Our Patriarch (mtl). POP is a very very good novel (focuses on growing family up in a quite realistic way), the problem is - it's quite niche, it has different feel than other novels. After just a couple dozen chapters there are a few family members younger than the patriarch that could easily take over as main characters if the MC was ever killed or whatever.
The novel started off pretty good, in my opinion. Unfortunately, at some point the consistency of the story fell apart. The name of one of the characters changed for a chapter. The realms of power changed from mage, great mage, great archmage, divine, ect. to body, innate, divine, then legendary (I think? Hard to keep track with the switches). The MC also has his own special realms for cultivation that also changed. It just got to be too much of a problem for me to enjoy the read.
I was enjoying this novel even with its few inconsistencies here and there but then around chapter 100, the names of everything including people, cultivation, items all changed. It basically became unreadable because one moment someone goes from Jack to Caesar, or they're at the realm of great mage level 12 now they're at the realm of innate level 8. I DONT UNDERSTAND WHATS GOING ON. The quality has also gone down so much, so many grammar mistakes filling this novel. I tried too adapt but I have my limits, it gets worse the further you read.
I was just around 50 chapters in and all I can say is that its good. The MC's personality is sort of funny of how he doesnt do things like being mysterious or trying to look cool everytime he appears in his descendants dreams, he just go straight to the point...... all I can say for now cause im still reading it QwQ
