Apocalypse: Generic System by Macronomicon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sometimes you'll come across a series or even a whole genre that gives you so much enjoyment that you fall down the full rabbit hole and don't care in the slightest if the quality is so/so because the FUN factor is simply way too high.
That's LitRPG for me. My latest obsession. Tailor-made for a game fanatic and a leveling-fiend, these kinds of books appeal to the min/maxer in me. This particular book by Macronomicon is particularly fine for this quality.
Ignore the setup for a sec. Dive deep into the mechanics. If this is an Impossible Setting tutorial, where no one should be able to survive, then the only true way to beat it is to break the system.
And Jeb does. :) He even does it with magic, or rather, Mist.
Smarts account for quite a bit in this story. Military knowledge and application of fine magic skills to magical traps make for a fine, fine story. I grinned an awful lot.
Not every LitRPG accounts for intelligence. Often, it's just a matter of the grind. This one simply POWERLEVELS. :)
