>>144746206
Yeah, it really did a 180 with its writing style and themes the moment it got taboo'd.

Still reading it because it might go somewhere when the main storyline catches up with the hero one.

The writing also got some of the humor back in the recent chapters. Pope chapters are my favourite ones so far.

Taboo what?
>>
>>144747100
I don't really understand how it contributes to the world getting all messed up though. Is it because all these people learn skills, taking away energy, but never give it back because there's little to no deaths?
>>
>>144750903

the act of giving skills consumes energy and death does not return enough energy to make the system stable
>>
>>144751068
I thought by raising the skill's level and then dying would give back more? Basically a loan system.

Wait, I thought that things were going relatively ok until fucking Potimas manipulated former Demon Lord and Hero to make them shout ANOTHER DIMENSION!!! and that ended up making a shitfest and wasting energy like crazy. And he has access to one of those MA Energy generators, that keeps the barrier and soldiers operational, but he forgot or doesn't know how to use it to become a god as well, and he's wasting MA Energy in the process. Wasn't the system going fairly well until elves started messing things up? There's also the matter of souls being reborn too quick and getting that Soul Erosion debuff or something.

She just put her trust in the wrong person.
I'm pretty excited to see what sort of confrontation she will have with Shiro-chan considering they have opposing views. I imagine she will trust her Student list and assume Shiro-chan is some faker. Not sure if Shun will buy it though.

>Soul Erosion debuff
W-what
>>
>>144756182

Rembember when Wrath wandered into that island in the middle of the huge lake inside a mountain range, after butchering the Ice dragons? Where he found a Master Swordsman who kept him at bay for days to let others escape. Well, Kuro created that country so that souls that had reborn too many times in quick sucession could rest for a life and stop degrading. Or something like that.
>>
>>144755419

the shitfest with the previous hero and demon lord only accelerated what was happening naturally, it was already going to collapse with or without elves
>>
>>144756330
Didn't that place cause problems though? Something along the lines of the energy was being used by the souls there but never returned because deaths were uncommon? I thought that was the reason Kumo-chan let Wrath destroy it.

Gold is really goddamn rare as it turns out.

In my diggings that weren't referred to me in the rankings or on here/other places, I've found maybe one I consider gold (that's now on the rankings and not so unknown) and a few alright-to-kinda-enjoyable ones.

For the records, the ones that appear on the daily rankings generally tend to be complete shit more than half the time.

How many chapters does it take to be considered dropped rather than not picked up?

Some are dropped by ch1 because of unintelligible translation or very low quality.

For most I try to read 10 chapters if it's the normal WN chapter length.
For longer chapters or LNs it's 3-5.

>>144755324
>But the damned skinshifter old man that takes people's souls hostage knows exactly what he's doing in his quest for godhood.
No, the real problem is that he DOESN'T know what the fuck he's doing. The fact that he tried to kill D should've tipped you off to that.

This is his plan in its entirety

1. Make myself really, really hard to kill

2. Spend the rest of eternity doing random-ass shit until something works and I become a god

3. ???

4. Profit!

When I started reading I honestly expected the dungeon to be a lot bigger (like 8+ dungeons as she slowly evolves/levels up). Although it's long jumped the gun it's still enjoyable IMO, just not the same premise.
>>
>>144764048
Taboo only tells you the world is fucked and that you can escape it by becoming a god, it doesn't tell you HOW to become a god.

Potimas maxed Taboo and realized he was going to get fucked like the rest of the world so he started trying to become a god. Obviously he hasn't succeeded yet unlike a certain spider who just happened to stumble into the one shortcut method.

>>144765524
I wonder how is shit going down once taboo is finished installing on shun
>>
>>144764232
The first phase of the WN was all dungeon crawling though, and that's what hooked me. You could have different elemental dungeons, different bosses, more skills/powerups, hidden/ancient loot, etc. The author probably got tired of that though and wanted to connect to Shun's story since it was obviously the main plot point though (honestly everything Shiro does before she leaves the labyrinth is unimportant now aside from her making her name).
>>
>>144766274
Doesn't loot ever feel like cheating to you? It's all very luck based.

>>144766445
This. I remember farming days to get an item my friend got 1 hour in.
>>
>>144766445
Not monster drop loot, but hidden caches sort of thing. Or things adventurers dropped when they explored. She can't equip weapons/armor until she's arachne anyways so it'd have been interesting to see her see all this stuff she can't use aside from amulets and elixirs/etc.
>>
>>144750903
The world being messed up doesn't have anything to do with D's system. The world originally got fucked over because elves created magitech that took power directly from the MA field and thus fucked with the balance of the world. Kuro and Sariel allegedly wrecked most of that shit and set back the elves WAAAAAY back on a technological level, but since the world was already in danger they asked D to fix shit and that's where the System came in. The system itself is supposed to create a net increase of energy in the MA field by stripping the souls of humans of all their accumulated skills upon death and put on restrictions to prevent elves or anyone else from relearning how shit works outside of the system well enough to repeat the magitech bullshit.
The issue is that the System only really fixes shit over time unless a shitload of people die at once, so when Potimas tricked the Hero and Demon King to try and attack D, the MA field had yet to be restored, so now with the massive loss of energy because of that attack and the leak in the MA field, the System can't provide enough energy to offset the continuous decrease of energy.
A nice big war would have stabilized things a long-ass time ago, but since Sariel is a moralfag and Kuro is her bitchboy, he never went through with it and ended up dooming the world through inaction.

Are the illustrations for vol 12 out or is it just the cover?

Hint:
He just doesn't want to restrict himself with a physical relationship.
That's why he doesn't bang his friends and goes for strangers bought with money.

It's pretty much the same with everything he does.
He's always helping everyone in the shadows, but doesn't want any attachments with nations, influential people or the whole demon lord mess.

I think this relates to his relationship to the gods, but can't say anything for sure yet.

Taboo is not just useless, it's actively dangerous. D even tells Kuro that most people who get it to 10 go insane. The skill description says "You must not increase this skill". It's more like your San dropping to 0 in Call of Cthulhu.

Akuma Koujou is probably my favourite apart from Kumo. Pretty sure it's not translated though.

I also really liked http://ncode.syosetu.com/n2400bt/ although this one seems pretty obscure. Maybe I overrate it a bit because my japanese is too bad to tell fluid writing from clumsy writing.

>>144750903
It's the elves.
They're drawing far too much power from the system with the technology they use, probably because Potmas is trying to become a god.
The regular dying of that happens in the world is simply not enough to stabilize the system though. To make it last longer, they incited war, and Shiro's plan is to outright collapse the system, but that would result in the death of people with a high number of skills, who now rely on the system.

MC was a total homo for his Gandalf clone MMORPG character, aptly called Dunbalf Gandadore.

He accidentally remakes his character as a loli and gets thrown in a realistic version of the game 30yrs in the future.

He finds his old buddies also transferred, they were top dogs in the MMO and now they own a country.

Everyone teases him/her for the sudden change in character and she starts playing her part as a loli prodigy.

Then there's some backstory about saving their country from demons or some shit.

The LN translation and illustrations are good, which helps.

What is appeal of these stories?
I check some and they are either poorly written or terrible translated or both.
Most stories is filled with anime cliché with all its faults.
Pictures are usually great and its help a little.
Will you be interested in stories written by no Nippon and with less anime inserts?
Just curious.

>What is appeal of these stories?
They're just fun little quick reads to go go through when there's nothing else to do. Some of them turn out to be pretty great and alter get an anime, while others are just brainless power fantasies with cute girls attached, that I just want to read when I'm done watching my super serious adult chinese cartoons.
>>
>>144777957
Well, most of them are some sort of power fantasies that live on the concept of "wouldn't it be cool if THIS happened?", other have grinding or abusing RPG-like system in every possible way, which is something that resonates deeply with the kind of people who enjoy that kind of thing. Some actually have interesting plots and characters. The large majority IS trash, so all in all it boils down to what kind of stomach you have for fiction. For example I used to read my dad's Z grade SF books (along with his good ones), often 40 years after they were written (and let me tell ya, SF ages TERRIBLY as it relies on scientific advancements to determine what's plausible, some of these hard SF books were unplausible when I was 10), so I can stomach pretty much anything.
>>
>>144778466
Oh, yeah, can't forget that as >>144778398 says, they come with cute anime grills, and since there's very little you can't write when you're writing a WN, and you don't have an editor on your neck telling you what can run with a magazine or somesuch, there are many with sexual content of varying degrees.
>>
>>144778466
I recollected very fondly hard sf that used tapes as main source of information storage.
Which still makes sense as current storage is not durable enough. And lose information over time very fast.

Do you think that there is market for similar stories but written by Western authors or it is specific Nippon market?
Like stories that have less teenagers and more mid or even old men and less infantile tropes?
Kind of like Goblin Slayer but without pretty girls, less rape and more professional monster hunting ad DD tropes?
>>
>>144768586
It's pretty explicit.
>>
>>144778794
What's the point of reading shitty stories if there are no cute anime girls?

Just admit that you're trying to sell us your D&D fanfiction.
>>
>>144778794
It depends.

The current wave of stories can happen, because web novels are not really regulated by an editor. An amateur author writes something that they want to write, no matter how controversial or offensive, and post it online without fear of a publisher rejecting it.

I know that in the US, publishers are not likely to pick up a web novel that has already been posted online, even with some changes to the story.

Japan had something weird happen though. Dengeki gave a specific web novel, that had a decent online following, a chance at becoming a Light Novel, and it exploded in popularity, and became an anime. Light Novel publishers see that success, and want to reproduce it. Light Novels have always been pretty hit or miss anyways, but now they have a testing ground before they actually push it onto shelves.

So, can we in the west reproduce this effect here? Well, do you really want to?
We have a lot of systems that make self-publishing easy—even risk free (if you don't count the time spent writing as part of the "risk"). People have actually tried to publish their own works through Amazon and other platforms, with varying success.
You CAN go ahead and publish your D&D-inspired fiction if you'd like. But you'll need to do your own marketing if you want it to get at all popular.
>>
>>144778794
I don't really know what you mean by market, a prospective audience? Because the possibility of an audience being there definitely exists, but it also depends on how you market it and how good at writing you actually are. Just think about Narnia, Harry Potter, Twilight, etc. Some day I was bored and had to spend time in a book store, I wandered into the teens/young adult section, and there were tons of books about going to fantasy worlds and doing stuff, many of which were part of long series. Sure, I hadn't heard about most of the authors, but if they made it to standard publishing, there was a market. But that doesn't mean people will necessarily read or buy your story, if it's shit.

Basically anyone can open a blog and publish their story there, no one is stopping them.

Its a pretty good read. Translations are slow though,

Not him, but if you don't mind traps, how about "I'm a Kitsune?"

Levels, "skills", classes.

>>144783337
How come there's always a bunch of people to turn kumoko threads into a LN/WN rec/general?
>>
Does anybody else really like the system in Slave Harem and want to see it used more, without being shit like Slave Harem.
>>
>>144785353
because there's nowhere else to talk about it and /jp/ is shit.
>>
>>144785353
Kumoko isn't big enough to sustain their own thread, and most other LN/WN aren't either, so usually threads for smaller LN get hijacked.

It use to always be Mushoku Tensei threads, until that ended, and the side-stories slowed to a halt.
>>
>>144785353
Because regular LN/WN threads always get taken down because "not Anime or Manga".
>>
>>144785430
Good job at sabotaging kumoko threads. Because that's how they will end up too.
>>
>>144785353
Pretty much almost every LN/WN/Manga narou title thread turns into a general except Overlord. There was also MT but it ended.
>>
>>144785430
I just got warned for posting in this tread, fuck this shitty ass site and their shitty ass mods
>>
>>144785380
Specifics, please.
What kind of system is it?
>>
>>144785478
Where instead of stats or regular levels you have jobs that you can change into which have there own benefits and skills.
>>
>>144785353
It's hard to keep small threads alive.
>>
>>144785380
Almost the exact same system is used in Growth Cheat. They're practically the same story from what little I read of it.
>>
>>144785380
>Slave Harem
There are various series with that title, give full name
>>
>>144785461
Kumo has a manga so it should be fine.
>>
>>144783337
All of the otome WNs from Kenkyo onward, stuff like edgy Joan of Arc and Hamsterman's adventures with witch Shimikaze.
>>
>>144785602
Can't remember the full name but the one on raising the dead with 100 plus chapters
>>
>>144785467
I haven't seen goblin slayer threads since yesterday midnight, something happened?
>>
>>144785380
The system there was different, but it was complete shit. The MC's own ability to have multiple jobs, and freely change them was also pretty silly.
The story being boring as fuck also doesn't help.
>>
>>144785601
I do like growth cheat but it doesn't really have many chapters out.
>>
>>144785548
What's the catch?
>>
>>144785690
Yeah I agree that being able to have multiple jobs was kind of bull shit and it was way to damn easy to get the hero job, that I think the author just couldn't think of a decent way to give him it.
>>
>>144785738
Most of the system is invisible, and people have no idea what the fuck is going on.

Invisible RNG is wrongly attributed to talent, people have some entirely wrong misconceptions on how job classes are attained.
>>
>>144785738
Forgot to mention that the jobs themselves level up instead.
>>
>>144785664
Slave Harem in the Labyrinth of the Other World
I really like the system, the MC get point to spend setting jobs in set, what i really like is that it has that OP feeling but is also balanced, the MC can make a OP fighter build but if he find something with complete physical desistence, like a slime, then he's fucked.
Pity that the author don't knows how to write dialogues and is incredibly repetitive.
>>
I'd also like to see more dungeon/labyrinth diving because I'm getting sick of the MCs just spending all their time dicking about in a town.
>>
>>144785951
>then he's fucked.

He can just respec at any time without any repercussions, unless I was reading a different story.
>>
>>144786227
As far as I reads he have to do everything manually, which takes time so he can't do in the middle of combat, he also had to spend points to get her equipment so he was quite limited.
>>
>>144785879
Is there a max level?
>>
>>144785951
Sounds like that's what the harem is for. They should be opposite to him.
>>
>>144786835
There's been no mention of one yet but it would probably be 100 given how the levels are set out. In turn when you get to a certain level of a jobs you could get access to a higher grade versions of it but at level 1.
>>
>>144787051
Re:Monster has this system.
But of course, the MC is not a human so it doesn't apply.
Not that it matters since it's just goblin wanking after the first volume or so.
>>
>>144785876
>Invisible RNG is wrongly attributed to talent
Worst. The fact the system is invisible, everyone thinks certain things are RNG, when they're not. Like the weapon slots shit.
No one but the MC can see if a weapon has an open Weapon Slot, so people think that binding a skill to a weapon is pure chance.
>>
>>144787713
>binding a skill to a weapon
>weapon slots
What are these exactly? Like magic weapons?
>>
>>144788044
The world has labyrinths filled with monsters. Monsters that die often drop items. Certain item drops are like skill cards.
Someone with a "Master Blacksmith" job can use his magic to bind these skill cards to an item.

But only certain items have a Skill Slot, but only the MC can see them, so most of the time, the Skill Card and Item just turn to dust, and everyone attributes it to sheer luck.
>>
>>144788519
Who made this crazy system and why is the MC able to be above it?
>>
>>144788677
Typical appraisal skill that can see through everything.
>>
>>144786183
>a town
I mean, I don't know what you're reading but fantasy worlds are typically towns and kingdoms. With the Capital being the most important place.
>>
>>144788677
Not sure if anyone created it. I dropped it a long time ago, but I'm pretty sure the story started with the MC finding a new game online, and then finding himself inside of it.
Nothing else is really explained, and the MC just plays along with the game, I think because he hated his old life.

>>144788763
That's not his only cheat ability though. He can also manifest super rare class items out of thin air, by respecing his starting points.
>>
I hate edgy Kumo.

Thankfully she become more aloof now, she should have more monologue though. Her interaction with other really scream edginess. Damn autistic spider.
>>
>>144788868
Yeah, but I mean spending 'all' their time there. I want more adventure.
>>
>>144788992

You must like Arifureta.
>>
Is it just me or is the thread auto saging?
>>
>>144789075
Her behavior/personality following her leveling up taboo is different though.

No more silly comedy until recently.

>>144789238
Yeah. We probably are just barely tolerated by the mods.
>>
>>144789167
If Arifureta had better writing and wasn't so damn edgy I probably would.
>>
>>144788992
I just hope she doesn't get new edge by resolving her existential crisis.
>>
>>144789313
The comedy was coming back fortunately.

Man I hope we won't get hundreds of chapter dealing with Kumo's existential crisis. I hope D would be nice enough to her.
>>
>>144789295
But it's super comedic.
>>
>>144789594
Yeah I did find it funny at times, I just don't like how Hajime feels less like a character and more like an accumulation of all the things the author wants to be.
>>
>>144789495
>>144789313
Remind me again why the crisis, is it because of the coffee or something? how she is still D's bitch from the very fucking start and has no say on the matter?
>>
>>144789761
Oh yeah.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBQP_Mk4Ftk
>>
>>144789761
Because D can still snuff her out without any effort on her part.
