    Name: Gamer. Origins (Original story)
    [​IMG]
    Raw Link: http://novel.munpia.com/18853 (the earliest, not the fullest) ; https://page.kakao.com/home?seriesId=51037287&page=1 (the fullest)
    NU link: None. Nobody translated it so far (February, 2019)
    Why It Should Get Picked Up:
    Obviously, because it is THE GAMER. I am actually kinda surprised how I am really the first one creating a thread for Gamer. I am not sure how much the famous manhwa known by many of us readers through Naver and Webtoon have taken from this story and how much was adapted, but this is indeed the "Original story of Jihan and his friends". As you see, it is posted on multiple websites, on many of which the evaluation for book is average or even low (Naver Novels ; Ridibooks). This is mostly explained by the fact that in 2014 the Gamer only has started and the gaming/ RPG / LitRPG / Real Life RPG scenario was quite innovative even in manhwas and webtoons for that time, not to mention the korean novels which are (I am cap!) pure text and which are understandably more cumbersome to comprehend in comparison to pictures (even at present actually...). Therefore, it was viewed with genuine scepticism and even hate.

    Besides that, I can assure you that this one will be taking plot related to level-up, becoming stronger and undefeatable (well, just based on the first chapters, dunno about anything else without proper translation), so if you are into it, this will be to your liking.

    If you need the text for Gamer, you can take Free Online OCR (Ex.: ABBYY FineReader Online: OCR Online) which goes through the screenshot or picture recognizing all the text and putting it into the text format for you to copy. For Gamer it works quite well at least, I tried with the first chapter on Munpia website.

    Let's make this one to the top, guys!

    In terms of game like character... Han Hi Han is probably the best one... (after Kirito though).

    So is this The Gamer but in text format or is an origin story of The Gamer, therefore a prequel or spin-off?

    It is either a prequel (before the main story in manhwa BUT STILL with Jinhan as MC) or the whole main story how it is in a novel format.

    It is a novel indeed, not a fanfic or anything, an official web novel for "The Gamer".

    If it's a prequel, hopefully it would introduce how the other characters met The Gamer before he became The Gamer. It would also be nice, if they have different point of views from hidden characters which might hint as to why he has the ability "The Gamer".

    What about Ji Han's mother? Who is she? When Ji Han got his powers, the mother's designation and level was full of question marks. But the next day, it was housewife as designation and level 15. How is this possible?
    And how is Harem king related to Han Ji Han?
