    Reaper scans. Read up to chapter six (posted today) to see why I’m liking what I’ve seen so far.

    Failed Hunter, after 7 years of training, despite being Awakened, he has no stat increase, did not awaken his innate skill. Then, just when he’s decided to quit, the Tower of Trials kidnapped every Awakened in Korea. (of course it’s Korean :rolleyes: ). Leveled playing field, his advantage is 7 years of training and study. Others are more familiar with skills, and how to utilize them the most effectively, but he’s doing good. Intelligent, becoming ruthless, hard working. Good so far. :D:D:D

    The title itself is a telling critique on the state of KR novels and, consequently, a compelling argument against picking up this novel. The KRN landscapenecromancers as far as they eye can see... :sushi_sigh:

    Yes, but fortunately, I like those kinds of stories. Hence I tend to be critical and demanding. :D

    Guy is SMART. He’s already speculating, and he may leave the tower early, because the real world dungeons are less dangerous, good profit. This may not be a tower climbing story. :aww::aww:

    Guy actually seems kind of dumb to me.
    At least it's not a second chance Necromancer story.

    Judging by the title being "Boundless Necromancer" and the tower being the best place for his power to grow boundless, he probably will fully climb the tower. Maybe he will use the temporary return to Earth item sometimes, and maybe the story will go on for a lot longer than the tower itself to show how he uses the power, but there's pretty much no doubt that it will at least start as a tower climbing story.

    I actually think it’s a pretty good move by the author. Training for 7 years is still not actual combat. He’s getting a taste of the difference between training and being on the front lines. I also like the very real, human reactions to injury and mental exhaustion, one of the extremes experiences in combat.

    Agreed. And I love tower novels. :aww:

    He’s cutting himself to train his regeneration. It’s been done, but so far I’m getting a good feeling for this novel. Author is following the standard tropes, but done well. :)

    It's odd how many non Necromancer Necromancers characters we have.

    Skill level is too low. He needs to rank up to get the cool Solo Leveling effects. :rolleyes:

    Somehow, I think that obnoxious git is about to be sacrificed to give our protagonist resistance to magic. He’s getting all the other resistances…Fire, pain, physical damage. :eek::eek:
