A very fun high fantasy adventure with some flaws, July 10, 2021
Everything in the story feels a bit rushed and a bit fast paced. There's a bit too much hopping from one event to another without it feeling as though there's anything important connecting them. The romances in particular, while I haven't gone through every romance yet, feel like they're missing the build up--it goes from "hello it's nice to meet you" to "I'm ready to sacrifice every thing for you" in a few chapters (and a week or so in universe).
The humor probably won't be for everyone either. I played a playful main character and it was a near constant one-liner machine inside their head. Duh! I mean what would you expect from a playful character? <-- Expect lots of lines like that.
With all that being said, I really liked the story and while I pointed out some issues they weren't really a problem for me. The story was high energy and the humor grew on me. I'm excited to see the series continued, and I really fell in love with Morkai and Straasa so I'm even more excited to see the romances progress!
Edit: I've played a few more romance paths and I have to say the "friendmance" (it's basically the slow burn or 'main character is oblivious' path in comparison to the "flirtmance" where you're actively flirting and showing interest whether it's shyly or boldly) were great! They're paced a lot more naturally, and playing an oblivious to romance main character is just super fun!! So yeah I totally recommend the friendmance paths.
