    I'm thinking of reading this novel - I've heard a lot of things about it. However, do I need to have a good understanding of Chinese History/Geography to understand it? Does it matter?

    STFU about NTR, it was one scene where a slut which wasn't even his gf was fucked by another guy, not like he doesn't have a loyal harem beside her and didn't kill the guy a few weeks later.

    Hmm - I was mostly looking for something with good character/world development. I'll probably give it a shot. Hope it's not brainless

    If we are going to spoil. The MC is a pussy which allows himself to be fucked over alongside his harem only because he doesn't want to change history. He could've become the king or get revenge on a guy who killed one of his chicks but he doesn't do it because of some pussy route which he wanted the prince to take of the villian instead. Its like he had so much potiential but halfway through the novel he gets complacent and plays it safe like a puss.

    Edit: He also can't have children so he adopts. Feel so bad for his harem who can't have children because he is sterile. Dude is one of the most disappointing MCs

    It's a good novel overall. It's very interesting despite some drawbacks

    Both of you guys at least use a spoiler tab. The guy is asking if he needs to know outside knowledge for the story not what happens in the story.

    I dont know Chinese history but I think its worth reading. Great novel, lots of wars/fights. Dont get too caught up over the sex/NTR, doesn't detract from the story.

    Pretty sure there was that one girl he met first and messed around with. Girl gets forgotten for some time and gets revealed to got raped and killed or something but is that Ntr? dunno.

    It's not, breaking up and going with another man years later is not ntr, ffs you guys are obsessed with ntr, everything is ntr to you.

    He did disapppoint by not willing to change the history, but the strongest guy in the kingdoms with a harem is hardly a pussy and it didn't make the novel any worse, those schemes within schemes within schemes were epic.
    Besides what should a transmigrator which knows the future is debatable, in reality most guys who took power and changed history wouldn't have plot armor and would be killed by the next unexpected thing.

    You don't need to know any history, but it wouldn't hurt to know where the different nation's are. Any map of the Warring States will do. Or if you want a quick rundown, it's Qin in the west, and Zhao, Wei, and Han in the middle (from north to south), and Yan, Qi, and Chu in the east.

    Did she break up with him?I vaguely remember she got used as a sacrificial lamb to piss MC off. Also can you stop lumping me with the rest. I'm genuinely asking and not breaking my nuts off over this dumb tag

    No, it was like I'm leaving for the city, you're a village girl, it's better if you stay… Then he saw her years later married and was like, well I didn't expect her to wait for me, not like he cared with his harem.
