Synopsis

Daniel Stewart was chosen to alpha test a brand new Immersive VR game, "The Realms". What he doesn't know is that he has also been Chosen by one of the Powers of a far-off world, and is now a pawn in a game much bigger than any he thought he would ever participate in. Will he survive and thrive in this strange new world, or will he stumble and fall, shattered by the ambitions of another? Does he have what it takes to walk the Paths of the Chosen?

Inspired by the Chaos Seeds novels, TheDespaxas's The Gamer, and a wide variety of games and books, although the world, characters, and systems are my own. Expect high fantasy, magic, combat and intrigue, love and loss, grief and passion. This story is intended for adult audiences and contains explicit sexual content, profanity, and violence (including sexual violence, although not by the protagonist and not as a focus of the story). I prefer my stories to have happy endings, and especially in these uncertain times I feel that it is important to maintain hope. While this tale will reach some dark places, I promise to you that, when all is said and done, the villains will be justly punished and the heroes will prevail and prosper. Remember: it is darkest before dawn, but dawn always comes.

This story is also being posted on Royal Road.

Update schedule: Multiple chapters per day until this site catches up with other venues. Afterward, 2 chapters per week (Monday and Thursday), not counting bonus chapters. Chapter length is roughly 2,500 words on average, +/- 1,000 words.

      Status: chosen, chapter 38: how you like...
      Jul 20, 2020

      What I liked:Well written with no big problems in the plot (that I can see at least), the MC is neither a pushover nor a psychopath, he also isn't a perfect being with no room for growth. This story's "Game-like System" isn't a "copy-paste" and neither is it hard to understand (I also like the design of the status, menu, etc...)

      What I disliked: Sometimes it feels like the characters overreact to some situations (

      Spoiler

      for example, there's a scene where the heroine makes a joke that makes the MC feel a little bitter, normally people would just have an awkward moment and them the two would clarify themselves and get over it right? But it's like she gets offended over the fact that her joke stung him a little and just abruptly gives him the cold shoulder. It's not a big flaw, but moments like that feel a bit forced to me

      )

      What isn't inherently bad, but some people dislike:The story is character focused, so it'll go a bit slow. This story has s*x scenes which will involve centaurs (and other monster girls), harem and BDSM (as you can see from the Tags), so if that's not your cup of tea you have been warned.

      Edit: There's rape in the story now (chapter 56), not meant to be appreciated mind you, but more of a terrible trauma for the characters. The Author gave a warning before the chapter, but I still think he should have put it in the tags

      AMAZING. HOW DID I NOT DISCOVER THIS WORK OF ART SOONER! The snu snu & SMUT is on point and I like the traditional medieval English writing style the author adopts. It's really well written and reminds me of those professional fantasy novels I liked and read from the library with my bookworm friend in my senior highschool and college days. On top of this, the romance between the MC and centaur love interest that I've read so far has been very heartwarming and sweet with a touch of spice. 5/5

      Very good and well written story. None of the characters feel forced and are very fleshed out for how far into the story I have been.  Only complaint is that its a smut that pulls you in and makes you stay for the story.

      This is an absolutely amazing novel, a real hidden gem. The vibes are similar to Summoned Again?, and Supreme Magus, with a little bit of isekai humor / cliches. 

      However, a warning to those before they get too invested -

      Spoiler

      Chapter 54 is a real emotional trigger imo, as it's basically borderline / arguably netorare (the bad ntr), so if you can't handle that, don't read this. Besides those scene, the majority of this novel is really heartwarming however, so if you can at least tolerate it, give it a go. For those wondering, the scene is similar in emotional levels (but not as bad trauma wise) as in Endless Path Infinite Cosmos - if you're familiar with that.

      [collapse]

      With that aside, this is a really good story, and possibly one of the most underrated stories on this site

      Detailed but not complicated plot, good story line and the best thing for me is making babies for "MONSTER GIRLS WAIFUS" 
      This novel kinda MORE plots and LESS s*x scenes, at least s*x scenes are pretty hot. So I'm not gonna give much comment regarding this, because the plots are AWESOME.
       
      If you are just looking for s*xual contents, there are tons of smut novels out there that give more s*xual contents.

      I'm gonna say just like "tevey_tv" said "HOW DID I NOT DISCOVER THIS WORK OF ART SOONER!"

       

      Spoiler

      I won't say much about spoilers. MC got stuck on VR game and system/goddess give MC some "QUESTS" regarding making babies with some MONSTER GIRL race

      [collapse]

        TRULY HIDDEN GEM (especially when you are fans of monster girls)
