    I love this. These small details are what separates a good storyteller and a mediocre one. It shows that the author has a world in their head they want to show us. Thses little details are what separates "just another fantasy story" and a different world. I hope it keeps up. Great start.

    That was for safety reasons AKA the wolves he killed. He can hold on to it then drop it and run if he needs to. Unlike putting it in his bag, dropping it is easy then. Ad don't say that the smell of blood will attract beasts. He is already covered in blood after that fight. It's ok. It will be plot convenienced so that he gets tons of money anyway so the extra meat wouldn't matter.

    When you try to fact-check someone, you should fact-check yourself first. And no, these types of health-related information is not enough to quickly "look up". You actually have to go in and see what the articles and studies are saying. You cannot just look at the highlight shown in Google. They will highlight the word you looked up. So if you looked up "rainwater bacteria", they will give you a list of bacteria without telling you some of the most important information like where the sample was collected. You need to go in and at least skim through the article itself.

    I did look it up. If you read my comment, you will be able to see that the "I think" was towards what I thought you were trying to tell me. As for there being bacteria and fungus, I have already stated that they do exist in rain water. However, considering the location is in the middle of the ocean, the amount will be very low. This is also why I stated that you should wait a few minutes for the particles to settle. As for the boiling, that is mostly due to the collection system. The system used to collect the rain water is usually the roof of the house or other such surfaces that are out in the open. They will collect dust, bacteria, and animal feces. You mentioning e coli and salmonella suggests that you have not actually read the articles when you just casually Googled "Is rain water safe?". E coli is found in the intestines and is transferred through a fecal-oral route, and the article in Nature(which is where I am assuming where you got the info. Or CDC?) is talking about e coli in roof collection and other such surfaces. Salmonella is most commonly found in chicken and raw produce. Both of these bacteria you listed are the top 2 most common bacterial cause of diarrhea. This is why they were tested and must have popped up in your "People also ask" section. These are not easily aerosolized, so they are usually a surface contamination, not airborne. So actually click on the link and look. You will see that they are talking about roof-collected rainwater. So yes. I did search it up, and I actually skimmed through the article. I usually fact-check before making health-related claims.

    I think what you are referring to are those collected from your roof or something like that as that is the most common way to collect rain water. Also, in cities and places with a lot of dust, there is a lot of polution that can be carried in the rain water. That is why the collection method and location is very important. Which is why I specified waiting and their location.

    You are mistaking something. 1. Most water-borne diseases like dysentary results from drinking river water. Rain water is a very common souce if water to those without it. For some, it is their main source of fresh water. That is why rain-collection systems are so often promoted to areas where a stable source of clean water is rare. 2. This is the middle of the ocean and isolated from cities, land and other such pollutions. Also, I specified that they should wait a few minutes for such particles to be carried down first as there will still be trace amounts. 3. If all else fails, they can easily boil the water. They are not going to survive anyway without a fire. They can keep the water until then. They still have coconut for now.

    Rainwater is relatively clean after a few minutes. This is also an isolated island. So minimum polution. The little that is left is usually clean after a few minute of rain. As for bacteria, there is almost none just floating arround in the air. You might be thinking virus, but even that is almost non-existent on an island like this. As for parasites, there is actually none. Parasites require a host, they are huge. They do not just float around in the air.

    I said try. He has coconut shells. With how long he has to stay on the island, every single litre of water could be the difference between life and death. Also, he is already wet. Going to sleep is actually bad when it is cold, so the moving around might help. Also keeps you warm.

    Knowing and doing are different. I know how a good souffle is supposed to be made from watching Gordon. I have never tried it and I will most like create a mess. Also, this was more of a wish and observation than a criticism.

    Zhang Heng realized that he had made the right bet. There was no way that a well-made game would leave the players in a sure-death circumstance. The man in front of him was his hope of surviving on this island.

    1. Writing quality is bearable. 2. Story development is very forced. Every passive skills become useful with no setup in the next sentence. He would be peaceful for 3 months, gain a battle skill, and a conflict will arrise out of nowhere in the next sentence. 3. The MC is dumb. Sometimes having a dumb MC can be fun in a comedy. The problem is that this story tries to be dark. This makes the MC just frustrating. The only reason he can survive even a single day is that he got lucky and has a system. Worst of all, the MC is arrogant and thinks that he is smart while making the dumbest actions and statements. 4. Not sure about stability so I gave it a 3 as a middle value. 5. The background is terrible. The sect makes no sense and the rules the author introduces gets broken in the next. He does try to think of a "fresh" twist to a sect so I give 2 stars for effort. The problem is that some archetypes are there for a reason. Sometimes that is just an inevitable outcome of logical progression. An example of this would be greedy and selfish people always being in power as the antagonist. This is inevitable when only those that are greefy and selfish can climb over others to gain the wealth and power they have. Once you try to subvert expectations and break archetypes, it instead just breaks logic. So good attempt but poor execution. Overall it was a poorly executed story with an interesting premise. I would not recommend.

    Ah I was right. Plot convenience to justify that the golden skill was in fact useful right now. So forced and badly thought out.

    His greatest disadvantage is that he is stupid. The second biggest advantage would be that he has not cultivated long enough. Martial arts will not help you much when those at higher realms can still crush you like the ant you are. Again, this skill really does not benefit MC as much as a growth skill like old skin does right now. I know plot convenience will create some outer sect tournament or some BS to make this skill useful right now just like all the previous skills so far.

    Zhou Feng's greatest disadvantage was that he had never practiced martial arts before.

    It's actually a terrible and useless skill right now. He is as weak as an ant. So what if he can make the best moves? The enemy will be faster, stronger, and tankier than them. What he needs are exactly those growth skills. He still has 2.5 years to grow somewhat safely in the outer sect. Growth skills that increase his stats like old skin would be infinitely better at this point.

    Right now, he was in dire need of a passive combat-type skill because such a skill could instantly increase his battle prowess.

    Bad assumption. I know it will turn out to be correct becuase the author will make it so. However, just because the cave is numbered does not mean each cave will have the same things inside. It is just like not every warehouse will have the same items inside.

    The cave Zhou Feng was working in had a code name of #23. In other words, there were at least 23 such caves in the Tri-Gu Sect.

    At this point, the only logical reason for this sect's existence is that it is just raising blood pills. Everyone, even the inner sect, is for raising blood pills. The way this sect is run is so dumb and counterproductive that any other reason wouldn't make sense. Well either that or this sect is already collapsed and this is just a few clueless and talentless trash trying to drag on the sects existence.

    Again, they already explained that they die after 3 years unless they advance.

    Why weren't there any of these people?

    They already introduced that the sect elders live at the top of the mountain. I hate how the author tries to frame the MC as smart while saying the stupidest and the most illogical things possible.

    'Right! I know what's wrong! Why are there so few Elders in the sect?'

    So one senior can only steal half but another can just steal the rest? Stupidest sect in the genre...

    Xiong Dan had snatched the Blood Pills of almost everyone from Courtyard No.7. Only the severely injured Zhou Feng still had Blood Pills.

    This is not survival of the fittest. This is survival of the oldest.

    However, when Xiong Dan left, he still took away all the Blood Pills of Lin Ming, Yin Ling, and the others.

    Yeah. He was already dumber than an animal. Now he is dumber than a rock.

    At present, he no longer weighed the gains and losses. He only wanted to punch the man in front of him now.
