Trapped on a dying Earth, humanity desperately exploited technology to access the parallel world of Hovestile, a realm of magic and monsters.

Hundreds were carefully chosen to enter this world with plans to prepare for colonization, but contact with the humans of Earth was immediately lost. Nonetheless, the natives of Hovestile welcomed any assistance to defeat the monsters threatening their lands. The humans from Earth who accepted this task were labeled as Outworld Adventurers, individuals with the ability to improve their natural abilities through “stats.” Those born to Hovestile were referred to as Native Adventurers, original denizens with an innate talent for magic.

Alphonse Kneller is one such 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, Kirie and Asa—two young feline demihumans—rescue and heal him. Their mother, Rinka, offers Alphonse a precarious gift known as the Construct Contract, a strange tome of equivalent exchange created by an ancient alchemist.

Accepting the contract and a bond with the two sisters, the three new comrades journey into the world as an adventuring party. They are the first members of the guild known as GRIM.

This story is planned out as a massive project spanning multiple volumes.

    Status: vol. 1 chapter 24

    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

    Status: chapter 10

    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.

    Status: vol. 1 chapter 1: savior

    After struggling to figure out how to rate the story on this site after coming from RoyalRoad, I instead ended up with a blank review so I figured I might as well write something.

    I don't have anything new to say about how much I like this story that other reviews have already said but keep up the good work LordAstrea.
