The magical world of Threa is now experiencing a massive change. A new age is coming. The age of the 'gun' has arrived. Weapons of steel that could kill from a distance. However, they were not powered with gunpowder, but with magic instead. The change was so abrupt that the empires and kingdoms of the old World are struggling to keep up, with only a select few pioneers leading the revolution. One of the greatest pioneers of this new age is Maxwell Von Dunnwal. Armed with the knowledge of how to take advantage of this new age, Maxwell sets his sights on world domination. Will the might of the old world be enough to stop the world from falling under Maxwell's control? Or will the kingdoms of old become crushed under the might of Maxwell's military power? "Either way my name will be forever remembered in history." - Maxwell Von Galnus Dunnwal. ... Here's my Discord! https://discord.gg/MDQJvb7 And here is my Patreon! www.patreon.com/Acedus

Author here. So I just realised that there is actually a lacking in novels set during the renaissance - napoleonic era so this is my attempt to fulfil that niche. Thanks for reading and providing support!


A masterpiece!! I am glad that I found this hidden gem, and at the same time disappointed by its low popularity. I implore everyone reading my review to give this novel a read. This novel is best for those readers out there who try looking for novels on strategic battles unlike those mindless cultivation novels. The MC, Maxwell, is an absolute charmer. Unlike those suckers who can only think with their d*cks, or those f*cking 'heroes', our Maxwell here is an absolute genius who gives horse sh*t for things like morality. Also the political intrigue developed is really interesting. Even though the names of the empires are just cheap rip-offs of the European empires, but nonetheless this also adds to the charm of this novel. The only complaint I have is the slow updates. But I guess that it would be resolved if the fanbase increases. Again, I implore everyone out there to just give it a try.


No sh*t their I was going through the original novels looking for some good Military related novels. My hopes were crushed, to many terrible novels with bad grammar or terrible stories. Then I came upon the first chapter of this novel and was immediately hooked on the idea of an Arcane weapon field world. Great writing quality, no typos or grammatical mistakes, way better written then this review, the story progresses well, wish it would explain his family in greater detail but since it’s only been two chapters no hurry. I really can’t find anything wrong with this author or story just lowered some score because he just started the novel.


Very engaging introduction, with a good character development. Effective language has been used, to create a captivating start. Good job, can't wait to read the rest of the novel.


It’s a well written alternate timeline story. Quite interesting read about a military reformers on muskets era with a little bit of magic twist. I have no idea what kind of mc the author is developing so far the MC is decisive (not ruthless, that word is soo overused here) he knows what he want, armed with modern how to ... oh and he also give a black king vibe, Think of lelouch if you watch anime. Im looking foward on how the author develop this story


The pacing is a bit fast and sometimes some events which you would think are important are skipped entirely and are instead implied in the story to have happened which can either be a thing you love or a thing you hate. For what the novel is, it's a good read. Character developments and actions make sense (within the context of the novel), plot seems to be thought-out and structured, and characters are interesting and have actual understandable motives (within the context of the novel). The only real gripe I had with this novel is how the MC tends to take a backseat for huge swathes of the story but like I said before, you either love it or hate it. Now for light spoiler territory. I love how when you get into the later chapters and you start to realise that previously 'sane' characters may have a bit more screws loose than you originally thought... Other than that, I found it rather interesting that when a person who is by definition a 'good person' who just wants to live a happy life or for their people to be happy but happens to oppose the MC dies *cough* Victoria *cough*, for some reason a good chunk of the commenters are celebrating their demise. I guess it just goes to show how some of the readers were really pulled into the power fantasy of an MC who is by definition a villain and because of that, I can't help but give this novel some bonus points for achieving that.


More chapters please 👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿👌🏿


Honestly i really love what you are doing here so keep up the goos work but i do question why you use magic as "gunpowder" but there is no mention of healing magic/fireball etc. Is it because there is no such magic like that or magic itself degraded that far that it does not exsist either way its still very questionable


Nice story ! Really enjoyable to read it ! Like how they are all little insane and those plot's and sheme's ,strategie. Well written hop there will be more ALL HAILL DRUSSIA !


Estamos no apoio e esperamos esse desenvolvimento romântico ,pra aliviar um pouco a parte genocida da história. Na minha opinião também a história deveria seguir mais ou menos até uns 50 a 60 anos no máximo de distância da história de iojo no Senki , pós ao que parece , a história e o mundo é bem semelhante a de Tanya .


Reveal spoiler


I love it the background is fantastic romance please or lemon MAP? Very god job i can't wait the next chapter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I have hoped for long time to find novel that would belong to this timeline of history. And I have to say it is well written too. Characters are interesting and well made at least so war. And who doesn't like old good musket and magic.


Truly a hidden gem. Well written, intriguing characters as well as an interesting plot It combines all my favourite genres, reincarnation, war and psychology. Issues like is it ok to just follow orders as a soldier and justify anything that is clearly against one's morals to be "just following orders" ? Seriously if you have time to spare and need a break from too much of those cultivation crap do give this novel a try and you might enjoy it.


Its similar to an anime called youjo senki but the timeline is different because the timeline in the anime was in ww2. Good story background and have potential i hope this story will get an ending and wont get hiatus and pls no harem


I came upon this when I saw the few times it was featured on the front page, and not going to lie, there is no question as to why. It really is a hidden gem and like you have said, there aren’t many works of this genre. It’s a nice retreat from all of the xianxia and fanfics. And have I mentioned that I love the anti-hero troupe?


I actually did not like war novel but this one is different! in short its really enjoyable to read it! Recommended to any war fanatic reader or non-fanatic reader! View More


I like this story and naming! It beats those Chinese novels that just do country A or country B. The author also has a small sense of humor that is in line with my own. Keep up the updates please! Thank you.


Fantastic novel .... Love the setup,strategies and under handed measures they take just to win..... I WANT MOOOOOOORE MORE 😈😈😈😈....am looking forward to seeing some more chapters ....i can't this book down
