    New novel from RainbowTurtle. Well, first chapters are amusing.
    Thread was missing - decided to create one.
    http://www.novelupdates.com/series/overgeared/
    Description of novel:
    Shin Youngwoo has had an unfortunate life and is now stuck carrying bricks on construction sites. He even had to do labor in the VR game, Satisfy!

    However, luck would soon enter his hapless life. His character, ‘Grid’, would discover the Northern End Cave for a quest, and in that place, he would find ‘Pagma’s Rare Book’ and become a legendary class player…
    Prologue of the novel
    Prologue

    “Five minutes left!”

    Eight of the top-ranked players were gathered in one place on the 4th floor of Cork Island’s dungeon. The highest-ranked among them was Peak Sword, who was 16th on the overall unified rankings. Behind them were 200 elite members of the Silver Knights Guild.

    It was a spectacular sight of a gathering of users with the combined power to capture a small fortress. But tension and anxiety filled everyone’s faces.

    “Four minutes left!”

    As time counted down, the nervousness of the guild members reached the peak. They were restlessly shaking their legs and biting their nails. Peak Sword gazed around with dark eyes, the hands holding his sword soaked with sweat.

    ‘I can’t calm down.’

    Cork Island’s dungeon was fully controlled by the Silver Knights Guild, and the boss monster, Hell Gao, appeared on the 4th floor every two weeks. However, Hell Gao was stronger than expected and had a variety of patterns, so they had been unable to succeed in any of their five attempts so far.

    Peak Sword and the elites of the Silver Knights strengthened their items with money during the last month, all with the intention of succeeding next time. They were definitely stronger after all the investments, but those who knew Hell Gao’s power couldn’t feel any confidence.

    “Three minutes left!”

    After three minutes, Hell Gao would appear and this place would turn into a sea of fire. Some of them would even die from just the flames.

    “Two minutes left!”

    A wave heat started to slowly permeate throughout the room.

    ‘Shit.’

    Peak Sword wanted to encourage everyone, but he was afraid. He was clearly reminded of the overwhelming appearance of Hell Gao, the staff-wielding boss monster enshrouded in flames.

    ‘Are we still lacking the power to defeat him?’

    It might be different if the power of the top 10 rankers were added, but he couldn’t help thinking that this expedition would fail with their current strength. However, the guild’s best ranker couldn’t show his weakness, so Peak Sword endured it.

    ‘Do it. We can do it. We are strong!’

    Peak Sword steadied his heart and took various buffing potions, with the others following him. It was at that moment.

    “One minute left…eh? Intruder! There is an intruder!!”

    “What?”

    All of the guild members’ eyes headed towards the entrance. A young man had entered. It was unusual because he was covered by a cloak, with no armor or weapons visible.

    ‘Did he break through the defensive troops downstairs?’

    Was it a highly trained assassin? No, an assassin wouldn’t openly reveal their presence in a place like this. Peak Sword pondered on the name above the head of the black-haired youth. However, no matter how much he looked through his memory, it was an unfamiliar name.

    ‘He isn’t a ranker?’

    Peak Sword glanced at his companions, but they all shook their heads.

    ‘A non-ranker coming all the way here. Pathetic.’

    Peak Sword came to this conclusion and warned the youth with a frown,

    “This is an area controlled by the Silver Knights Guild. I don’t know how you managed to reach this point, but if you don’t want to die, go back.”

    “My stealth suddenly disappeared. Was it because I was detected by Hell Gao?”

    The young man ignored Peak Sword’s warning and threw off his cloak as he talked to himself.

    “Ohh!”

    There were exclamations from every direction. The appearance of armor rapidly being equipped on the body of the youth was quite cool. Despite being made of metal, it seemed to be custom fit for the wearer, and its smooth surface was so reflective it was like a mirror. It was an elegant blend of red, black and gold. The particularly unique point was the one-meter long tail that stretched from the vicinity of the tail bone. It was sharp like a blade, and amazingly moving on its own.

    “W-What, that armor?’

    “It’s terrific… Unique grade?”

    It was the first time they had seen such armor, so the guild members struggled to hide their interest.

    Peak Sword raised his voice, “That isn’t important right now! Why aren’t you throwing him out right now?”

    Hell Gao would soon appear and then nobody would be able to escape from the dungeon. They had to deal with the outsider before that. The moment that the guild members interested in the armor tried to carry out Peak Sword’s order,

    Roaaaaar!!!



    [Hell Gao, the owner of Hellfire, has appeared.]

    [Hell Gao’s roar has applied fear, chaos, and debilitating effects.]

    [Hell Gao’s fire reduces heat resistance by 50%.]

    [Fire pillars have risen to cover you.]



    “Kuack!”

    “Hiiik!”

    Due to the silent flames that surrounded the whole body, half of the guild members either fell into a dying state or burned to the point where they couldn’t even be recognized. Barely half of the people standing were able to hang on.

    Peak Sword was surprised at the notification window that popped up.

    ‘I raised my fire resistance to 86%, but to still receive this degree of damage…!’

    They would fail again. As Peak Sword was feeling despair, he suddenly doubted his eyes. The unknown young man. While the others were surrounded by flames, he alone was moving forward, moving freely like he wasn’t affected.

    “H-How…heok?”

    Peak Sword fell silent as he witnessed a ridiculous scene. As Hell Gao ran amok and slaughtered the guild members, the young man pulled out a pickaxe, headed to the wall… and started swinging the pickaxe?

    Kaaang! Kaaang!

    The young man swung it with good form and complained as he wiped off the sweat,

    “Ugh, hot! Isn’t the labor getting worse? Why does the mineral only appear when the boss mob is present? Based on this, I might have to visit a dragon’s lair with my pickaxe!”

    At that moment, a hot wind emerged from the staff that Hell Gao waved and hit the young man. Peak Sword expected the young man to receive huge damage and collapse. But unbelievably, the young man only suffered minor injuries.

    “Excuse me, Mister.” The youth stopped his pickaxe for the first time and turned his attention to Peak Sword. He said with an irate expression, “Why are you just standing there blankly? It’s hot now, but it will only just get hotter.”

    What was he seeing now? Peak Sword belatedly regained his spirit and asked, “How can you be fine?”

    The young man replied like it was obvious, “It’s the item effect.”

    Chaaeng! Chaeng!

    The tail on the young man’s armor moved by itself and fought against Hell Gao’s staff. Peak Sword couldn’t close his mouth as he gaped at the unbelievable sight.

    The opening with a scene from the future. Similar to Praise the Orc, except much more hilarious.

    It's good, but I would love to read more chapters to decide if I want to continue reading it or not. Would also be nice to know of more tags about the novel

    First ten chapters made me laugh. MC's dumb but what made me want to read more is the character development that's going to happen, according to Turtle-sama.

    @hanglekuk if you are going to make a LCD, can you please place a link to Novel Updates page and a description for the novel. It just creates an easy reference for people who haven't seen the novel.

    The man character seems like a huge dick especially when the NPC died, but that's ok because the author utilizes that to make funny misunderstandings with the people around him. I love how seeing it from the mc's point of view every thing that can go wrong seems like it is going wrong, but from expert point of views it looks like he's a god incarnate, full of luck, and stepping onto a bright future. Meanwhile he's going through everything and complaining about how crappy his luck is. I totally bet that that carriage he was about to go into was a bandit trap

    I'm waiting for that girl to give him another S rank quest for him to fail. Wondering how low his level will get before he starts to lv up.

    CD in the future has been foretold, and the beginning seems stupidly amusing.

    MC is annoying atm, but RT says he gets better, so I'm willing to hang around a little.... though i hope that 'development' comes sooner rather than later.

    Instant bullshit novel detected.
    Negative level? This author is trying to hard to be funny while its just unreasonable.
    Why would he get a negative level if you do not kill shit you get no exp but if you hide in a house for life then you stay on the same exp forever.
    So if he tried to kill something but fails he dies there is no "I failed to kill something so it tried to kill me yet I did not die but kami-sama gave me minus exp points......."

    Really to try hard

    I read the teaser for chapter 11 and I winced at the dimensions of the Great Sword. The shape and size are so unusable, it would be more of a hindrance.
