Description

After being betrayed and cursed by an extremely rare spell, Oren, a powerful and influential player, finds himself as a first-level goblin!

Without even a fraction of his previous power, he vows to pull through and have revenge on those who betrayed him.

His thorough knowledge of the game's world and his unique ability to immerse himself entirely are his only advantages. But first, he must figure out how to survive long enough playing what is basically a low-level fodder monster!

All Hail Our Tiny Green Overlord!

Oren was one of the first players in New Era Online, an immersive virtual reality MMORPG. He leveled up in the game until he was a highly influential player, the head of the top guild in the game, with an impressive number of prime badges. All that is taken away when Oren is betrayed and a powerful scroll spell is used against him. Oren wakes up as a tiny green goblin in the unexplored Deadlands of New Era Online.

Determined not to delete his character, Oren decides to continue to play as a goblin and wreak his revenge. To do this, he needs to build a goblin city in the Deadlands and take the fight to the players who betrayed him.

If you're a fan of this genre, you know what to expect. The main character takes on quests, level grinds, improves his stats, and interacts with the game. This book has all that and more. There's really something for everyone here. If you love stats, this book is full of them, Oren's personal stats, the stats of his goblins, his building stats, resource stats, you name it. If you love city building, this is the book for you. You can just settle back and watch him build his new village, weighing food production needs against resource management, watching everything move at a realistic pace. And if you like combat, there's some of that too, as Oren defends his new settlement and takes out those threatening it.

I was genuinely invested in Oren and his progression. In the beginning, he made some frustrating bonehead decisions, and tried to explain why the mistakes actually worked in his favor. But by the end, his struggle to hold everything together made him really likable. There's some other characters I can't wait to see more of. It's going to be interesting to see where the series goes from here.

Jeff Hays did an awesome job with the narration. He has an impressive number of different voices for the characters, and is consistent with them throughout the book. He also has a realistic female voice which I always appreciate. He made the book a pleasure to listen to. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review. I'd 100% recommend this book to fans of the LitRPG genre.

A truly good litrpg

This is one of those books I wish I could forget, just so that I could read it again for the first time.

Above the cut

This is another one of the few LitRPG series on audible that is truly well written and more importantly seems to have actually been edited.

If you're like me and love classic LitRPG, but can't bare to face-palm your way through another unedited string of beginner writer's mistakes then you know what I mean.

This book actually deserves the 5 stars.

Surprisingly great! Good design.

A very fun and very long first entry in what i hope is a many book series. I usually avoid litrpgs where the people can log out (which most of them can) but the way the mc gets stuck is very believable and gives him a real goal to work towards. Only one game mechanic made me cringe and go, "no one would make or play a game like that." Which is high praise for this genre. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys the litrpg genre. I can't wait for the next one.

A great adventure

I am not usually into these types of litrpgs, where the world is a game and everyone knows it. But this story is a great take on this type of world.

Well written, funny, smart with lots of action and twists. its a hefty read at 25 hours as well. Shout out to the sound editors and the narrator who do a great job bringing the story to life.

I, for one, welcome our new green overlords and eagerly await the next book.

Entertaining

Really enjoyed this book! 20+ hours and you'd expect a ton of filler, but surprisingly it was all story. Good story :)

Definitely a unique spin on the typical litrpg books I've read. A kind of "the player gets stuck in the game" but not exactly. No spoilers!

The main character is a likeable (not always good though) guy you can get behind. The narrator Jeff Hays, is amazing as always.

Worth a credit or purchase - absolutely!

decent premise in serious need of editting

the good: interesting premise. A slight twist from the standard new game super AI standard. If you like litpg you'll like the premise

the bad: the exposition was painful at times. he would explain something and comment on the logical nature of the exposition. like telling a joke and telling your audience it's funny. the story uses the game company as an evil corporation and a lawyer comes in to get him to sign documents to relieve them of culpability. this section is loaded with exposition and reeeeally bad legal theory that is laughable. I almost asked for a refund at that point but trudged on. The love interest with a goblin AI is weird not because of the computer human aspect but because the goblin has little intelligence. basically mentally handicapped. luckily it isn't a primary plot imo.

overall I wish a professional editor had gone over this with butcher knife and carved out the bad parts because there is a decent story in there. just a lot of unnecessary exposition and clunky side plots that feel awkward.

Great LitRPG

This would be a perfect first title for someone wanting to see it they like these types of stories. Very thorough, but keeps the pace steady and easy to follow. I will be eagerly waiting for the next one.

Too many adverbs

Started out well but had to stop listening. So many adverbs it was driving me nuts.

"What are you talking about," he said incredulously.

"Don't tell me what to do," he said angrily.

"We did it," he said cheerfully.

These aren't straight from the book but you get the point. A bit disappointing because the story was interesting.

nicht unbedingt spannend

Vielleicht habe ich auch einfach einen zu hohen Anspruch. Allerdings fande ich es nach der Hälfte nicht mehr wirklich spannend - es war schon anstrengend mich zum weiterhöhren zu bringen - das heißt nicht, dass das Hörbuch schlecht ist, aber es ist definitiv etwas langweilig durch die langsame Entwicklung und hat weniger Action als andere. Die Characterentwicklung war auch enttäuschend.

Man sollte definitiv Townbuilding mögen.
Wirklich schade - ich höre es nur zum einschlaufen^^

Der Sprecher ist eigentlich gut, allerdings habe ich ab und zu ein rauschen oder knacken - nicht wirklich störend, aber trotzdem auffallend UND manche Stimmen sind etwas lauter als andere - darum den Stern Abzug - ich hasse diese unterschiedliche Lautstärke - ich höre es zum einschlafen und höre deshalb sehr leise - die lauteren Geräusche stören :/
und falls diese Bewertung etwas durcheinander ist - ich bin müde :)

the world of new era online story +1 stats -1

um es kurz zu halten die geschichte ist fesselnd aber viel zu oft werden vom Protagonisten immer und immer wieder teils völlig belanglose "character sheets" oder auch stats vorgelesen. Zwischendurch hätte es tatsächlich ein satz wie: " mit den selben stats wie.... " getan
ich freue mich trotzdem auf den nächsten Teil

Great entertainment for gamers and nerds

LitRPG is not exactly new to me now, I assume for many like me opened Ready Player One the portal. After a tour de force through this genre, I can tell crap from gold. And this is definitely the latter. As an oldskool 80ies scify and games fan grown up with Neuromancer and Snow Crash, I suffered myself through The Foundation Trilogy and found vast boredom in endless galaxies of the 50ies and 60ies until I stumbled over the World of Tiers. From there on the mix of phantasy and hard tech was always the best fun for me.
But hey, it's not about me, it's about this series.
It's one of these "plug in and stay plugged" storylines with a nice twist. The book is lightweight, amusing, the narrator fantastic.
Yes, sure, as mentioned several times, there are stat sheets. That's because it's LitRPG. If you're interested in endless descriptions of scenery and clothing, well grab a Tolstoi. This series is not aiming for Oslo's price committee, but it's targeting the hearts of gomers and nerds likewise. And there the pretty huntress is doing an awesome job.
Highly recommended.

recommend

it's a very well written story, often reminds me of my past experiences in mmo rpg games. especially the rise of the shield hero (anime)
10/10

To many statistics

The story is quite good, but the large number of system messages an statistics is annoying, especially in the middle part.

Großer Spaß für Zocker

...aber vermutlich irritierend für jeden der noch nie ein online RPG gespielt hat. Die Sequenzen in denen Stats und Punktesystem aufgezählt werden sind relativ häufig, da essentiell für diese Art Geschichte. Ich hatte jedenfalls sehr viel Spaß damit, ich kann und werde es weiter empfehlen

Das einzige was mich gestört hat war die Beziehung zwischen dem Hauptcharakter und der weiblichen Jägerin und seiner kaum vorhanden Rachsucht

So many details/options ignored

I haven't finished the book yet, but am right now deeply disappointed and frustrated about all options that were forgotten in the big fight in chapter 27.
Generally the book so far is a great experience, which is kinda ruined by the this first big fight. I am not really looking forward to any further fights as the author ignores/forgets options previously introduced and/or used.

Spoiler: what I am talking about are void crystals being able to regenerate mana and the goblin race ability that deals more damage when damage received. Both would have drastically changed events and I just can't wrap my head around how they could be ignored/forgotten.

Good

It's a great book but a bit slow in its development. There a quite a number of statistics that are repeater very often which sometimes obstructs the story. The idea itself is neatly converted into a good story though.

Imaginative book with potential for more

This is a nice audiobook, the production was very good, however, there are some inconsistencies and continuity errors in the book itself. On multiple occasions the protagonist seems not to recall that he already had an idea earlier, also in some occasions, the "NPC" characters use titles only acquired by the protagonist a couple of chapters later.
This may point to a bit of lackluster or rushed editing.

Although these mistakes are rather small, they tend to ruin the immersion, also the repeated readings of the character sheets are a bit annoying, I imagine that in the original book format, the sheets were more of a form or "screenshot" - granted this poses a difficulty for an audiobook.

However I still enjoyed listening to this audiobook, and the concept and plot were quite imaginative.
