    It is free due to still being translated to date. Go to novelupdates.com and search it. It will provide links to each volume/chapter. The translations get rough around 20 but get much better quality around 25.

    Left out the biggest part. It is not on Kindle. It is on novelupdates.com list for series. Just search for it. Novelupdates.com has a huge list of light novels being translated for free to reader and is pretty much the start of gamer novels and reincarnation novels.

    I'm familiar with the Korean alphabet enough to puzzle out words phonetically, but I still don't have a clue to what those words mean.

    I'm also limited to just my phone for Internet browsing and such currently, but thanks for letting me know where it's at for when I get back to a regular computer.

    Problem is, most websites don't display text very well on mobile phones.

    Edit to add: I am also patient and want the author to be paid for his work. I can wait until it's on a legit service instead of a fan translation, which are usually pretty terrible to begin with.

    Well, damn. I am on my mobile phone and it is what is used to copy and display. Hopefully, you can find some kind of access.

    Not sure if it will ever be on a legit service. It is over 4 years old. The rough translations are only for a few volumes between 21 and 25. You will love the story so much you will suffer thru the lower quality to see what happens and then the quality of translation jumps back up to top notch.

    Funny thing is the bad quality translation volumes happen when it was being translated by jawztranslations which is an author of a litrpg book on Amazon called Zectas. Zectas is a good, but could be better book series which is kind of similar to legendary moonlight sculptor. It is enjoyable.

    Most of us here say yes, but opinions vary.

    Personally, I'd say so. That and Killobyte by Piers Anthony even.

    Can definitely recommend that one mainly because it does alot of new stuff and its the only book thats ever included an albeit short lived RTS LitRPG. But really its one of my favorites check it out if you ever get tired of LitRPGs being similar.

    If you like litRTS, try the World at War series, and the standalone (I think), Side Quest.

    What's the best recommendation for books like Super Sales on Super Heroes, any of the books by Daniel Schinhofen, or Eden's Gate, with more mature themes like erotic or harem style?

    Wild Wasteland, The Valens Legacy, Alpha World, all have harems of varying degrees of explicitness. Erotica isn’t really my bag, I think @Eden Redd and @Alara Branwen could probably help you out more.

    I've read Valens and Alpha World. Love Daniel's work. I'll check out Wasteland next.

    edit - Actually, I can't find anything called Wild Wasteland. I've found a book called Wasteland, but seems to be YA.

    Wild Wastes, sorry. You might also like the Dark Dungeon series (starts with Dungeon Spawned) - I didn’t, but again, erotica isn’t my cuppa. There’s also the Gamer Girl and Lewd Shadowmancer series, neither of which I’ve read so I can’t really recommend for or against them. Tamer: King of Dinosaurs might be up your alley, so would the Ancient Dreams trilogy by Benjamin Medrano (both of which might be too “tame” if you’re looking for wank bank material). The Daniel Black novels (starts with Fimbulwinter), by E. William Brown) are fantasy hardcore harem isekai without much in the way of actual LitRPG elements, but you might enjoy those.

    Depends on whether you’re looking more for explicit scenes or RPG elements.

    Nah not looking for stroke stories, looking for books almost exactly like the ones I listed, not really hard core erotic, but not YA either. I'll look into all those you listed. Thank you.
