    But why not swallow the bone immediately, instead of doing the convoluted task of sneaking it into an ice cube

    What were the chances of me suddenly spilling the drink all over him before the guards suddenly came to alert him? Added to the fact that I was tapping his body in an attempt to 'dry' his clothes, it made sense for him to grow suspicious.聽

    Yeah that's cool and all, but what was stopping him from just swallowing the bone without the whole charade though? If anything, this just draws unnecessary suspicion to himself

    Yeah, you can definitely feel his real personality leaking through more as the story goes on. I definitely think the whole dynamic of him putting on a persona makes the moments when he actually shows his real self more impactful. I suppose the main issue I had was how flimsy the reasoning felt. Like, it's keep on being repeated how common and easy possession is, but there's no specific example of how others possess people exactly? And for that matter, how in the world does the MC realize possession is even a common thing anyway? If possession is such a widely occurring thing, why does it not occur constantly with nobility? Idk for such an important thing it just felt kinda glossed over

    This novel had a bit of a rocky start if I'm being honest, but I can feel it really starting to hit its stride now. This chapter in particular was written really well. I would honestly prefer it if Julien stopped having to put on this stupid act, especially since the whole "emotions affect mages on a deep level" would be a really good excuse. I feel like it sort of limits character interactions when it's not really geniune.

    Man wakes up in another world, decides he will pretend to be a god, and then accidentally speedruns godhood. Absolutely brilliant work, by far the best novel on this site.

    No one is aware of the amount of stars his boomerang art is. He can simply lie that it is two or three star.

    Since no one knew the details of the [Khufu Style], they wouldn't realize what art he was utilizing. The auction house would surely keep an eye out for any four-star boomerang arts being used, so this would help keep Duncan under the radar.

    He can store anything that鈥檚 technically part of him inside his inventory. You can probably figure out how he can pretty easily destroy DNA evidence using this.

    I've been trying to do 1 chapter per day, with maybe 1-2 bonus chapters per weekend, but school has been super tough recently. Will try to stick with the schedule the best I can though

    He had no idea if he had made an enemy or a friend. However, Murphy's Law says everything that can go wrong will go wrong. So he was inclined to think that he'd have to fight this being someday in the future.

    "Father...mother...big brother...Eli...how long has it been...I don't even know why I am living...heh鈥" The young man wryly chuckled with a mocking smile as if he was mocking himself. But as he mumbled, his eyes were gazing at the root of the tree, as if something or perhaps someone precious was buried there.

    Most of the 5 star reviews most likely didn't read past the first 80-90 chapters so be warned before you believe them. This novel was good emphasis on the was. It very quickly becomes a hot pile of mish mashed garbage where the author tries to find some semblance of plot to drive the story. This becomes painfully obvious once the main character leaves the island, but the authors strength relies on building an engaging system progression rather than having interesting characters, and plot.

    By far one of, if not the best novel I have hands down ever read. I've been reading webnovels for around 4 to 5 years, so seeing someone put actual thought into themes is a breath of fresh air. What really sets this novel apart for me is it's emphasis on strong characters. There's no carboard cutout 2d villians that are evil for the sake of being evil. It's more people having clashing ideologies, to the point that the main character sides with people who he originally though of as evil due to his character growth. The whole "power comes with consequences" theme that is portrayed through flaws in other aspects is super compelling, and I think it would be great to put more emphasis on it, maybe with Sunny later discovering shadows have flaws too, and being forced to exploit them in order to avoid doom. Idk I'm not nearly as good at writing as Guiltythree.
