Hovestile is a world of magic, dangerous monsters and conflict. Earth is a world of science, dominant humanity and endless strife.

In a dark future, tensions escalate between the nations of Earth as resources fall into perilous scarcity. Cities collapse into anarchy as governments tremble at the world's crisis. Boundaries blur from neglect and outright scorn.

In sheer desperation, mankind turned to the stars...and failed. They resorted to more grounded technology and accessed a world known as Hovestile. Hundreds were carefully chosen to enter this world with plans to prepare for colonization, but contact with the humans of Earth was immediately lost.

Over time, the people of Hovestile welcomed any assistance to defeat the monsters threatening their lands. Those from Earth were labeled as Outworld Adventurers, humans with the ability to increase their natural abilities through stats. Those born to Hovestile were referred to as Native Adventurers, original denizens with a natural competence for magic.
Alphonse Kneller is one outworld adventurer who dreams of making Hovestile his true home. But on his third dungeon foray, he is betrayed by his adventuring party and left for dead.

As he begins to abandon hope, two young catgirl demihumans appear before him named Kirie and Asa. Their mother, Rinka, offers Alphonse a precarious gift known as the Construct Contract. Accompanied by the two demihuman sisters as adventuring partners, Alphonse seeks to make further contracts and establish the guild known as GRIM.

This story is planned out as a massive project spanning multiple volumes. Comments and constructive criticism are greatly appreciated. Feel free to send PMs.
Note: The "Harem" tag for this story focuses on a genre definition holding some ambiguity. It refers to: Two or more characters developing interest/intimacy for one other character. While the aforementioned is customary, it is not entirely necessary. The desired individual may end up with one character, multiple characters or none at all. This tag is not a heavy focus in the story, but it is there because enough scenes are present that hint at or blatantly portray some romantic interest.

      This is an exceptionally well written isekai story with a fresh twist I haven't seen anywhere else.  The world building is interesting, but where it really shines is the relationship building.  The characters have distinct personalities and I found myself investing in them almost from the very start.  

      The MC is not some crazy OP dude.  He is intelligent and plans ahead.  I'm not against an OP MC isekai, per se, but I prefer an intelligent MC who relies on planning and the strength of his party.  I personally like an MC who doesn't act and think like a teenager.  

      Banter is the spice of life and it's so critical yet so often overlooked in these stories.  This story has just the right amount to give you that surprised chuckle without devolving to bickering and nonsense.

      Some of the authors on this site are so possessive they bark at any commenter not fawning over their story.  This author is as far from that as I've seen here.  From pointing out (surprisingly few) typos, to a minor inconsistancy, to simple suggestions, or discussing the plot, @LordAstrea is openly welcoming and enthusiastic to hear from readers.  I don't know about you, but I find that a nice perk.

      The author has put a lot of effort and heart into this story and it shines through in every chapter and every comment.  I don't tend to post reviews, but this story deserves to be more visible than it is.

      Also - catgirl beastkin.  It doesn't get much better than that XD

      Some of this story used to be on RR way back in the day and author removed it for editting. Really enjoyed it. I can see the changes made and it is very well written (so you have no reason to vanish again) ! Lol. I wish I saved my review back then but I'll just keep it short.

      Grammar: Top-notch. Barely any mistakes in chapters if any at all. Story: Gets real interesting and complex. Big world. Characters: There are a good bit, but it never gets overwhelming. I hope tea shop girl comes back (pretty plz).

      I definitely recommend giving this a shot.
