A prince sent into exile, without the means to fight back. A young man trapped in an unfair world, without the status to bring about change. Combined, they will have both means and status. Armed with advanced knowledge from a strange world, will Prince Corco be able to cut through the injustice, regain his birthright and bring enlightenment to the country of his ancestors to create a paradise of true peace, equality and prosperity? “Okay, first step: Let’s make some Brandy.” …that’s a maybe then. Hermit’s Note: My take on the kingdom building genre, which often suffers from weak characters, low stakes and contrived challenges. Buildup will be slow, with Book 1 focused on business managment, Book 2 focused on a battle for succession and only Book 3 getting into the depths of kingdom building. There’s plenty of inventions before that point though, so if you’re here for the clever use of modern tech you’ll find quite a bit to like even early on. Updates three times a week.

Top review

One of the best novel you'll ever find in this site, so I suggest you to try and read it. I'm sure you'll be captured by the journey of Corco. The novel is centered on kingdom building, so if you like the genere you can't, I mean it, miss it.

It's way better than the vast majority of novel on this website that's for sure. I have nothing but praise for this novel. Most Kingdom building novel are simply retarded so it's nice to read something that both make sense and is enjoyable.

Reasons why you should read this: 1) A story where the characters develop with time 2) well written hardly any mistakes. So it is fluently read without headache. 3) A story with several story arch that obviously is developed to some degree before written 4)an author that takes his time to redo stuff when he thinks it’s not good enough 5) An MC that isn‘t op but simply too knowledgeable for his time 6) Interesting not overdrawn characters that do not pout and cry anime style 7) great story 8) if you like this you should read it and leave some stones for the author!

A Time Traveller's Guide to Feudal Japan
A Time Traveller's Guide to Feudal Japan

Do people chase greatness, or does greatness chase us? A.I. genius, Gengyo, through the assistance of SAPPHIRE attains the means to time travel. He seeks a simpler life, and wishes to experience the warmth of a family. But often we do not get what we want, we get what we deserve. And his peaceful times soon end, as war storms Japan, and in order to protect his peace, he must conquer. Join Gengyo as he walks a blood-stained path toward absolute domination, seizing control of Japan. //Brief extract from one of the battle scenes. Written from the point of view of a samurai landowner, Niwa Nakatane. The hooves grew closer to Nakatane's position and their beating hearts grew faster. Perhaps they could simply remain like that, hiding behind the tree, and allow these barbarians to pass? That way could they not return home to their families? Could they not give their dear wives one final kiss, or share one final story with their enthusiastic youth? Nakatane knew exactly what they were thinking. And as the ground rumbled, and the mounted beasts howled, he was the first man to step out from the trees and make his stand. "OORAH!" Possessed by a furious energy, he thrust out with all the aggression of a war god, puncturing Ochi's stallion through the chest with the sharpened wooden point of his lengthy spear. The mammoth fell from his mount clumsily, his head colliding with a nearby tree root. He ceased to move, and a pool of blood began to form around him. "ARM THESE SPEARS MEN! VICTORY SHALL BE OURS!" He stood in front of the charge of over 150 horsemen, alone. But he did not give a single inch of ground. He met the charge of the next man in line, roaring vengefully, possessed by all the rage and power that had accumulated in his body over these past years. The horsemen shrieked like a pack of hyenas, fanning out, each eager for a piece of the man who had brought down their leader. //I did not create the book cover.

All the reviews and comments complaining the story is exactly as advertised will be deleted. SYNOPSIS It is January 2nd, 2035. In New York, leaders of all the world's nations are assembling to agree on a plan to save the dying planet: Earth. Before they can agree on anything, disaster strikes. An electromagnetic storm destroys the global power grid, and cuts communications. Billions of people die. But as soon as the storm dies down, millions of mysterious, glowing cubes appear all over the globe. The cubes contain tools that will let humans colonize a new planet: a bigger, richer version of Earth. The newly formed Colonial Council, which answers to the United Nations, has one goal: to ease the crisis on Earth by transfers of goods and resources from the New World. Millions of new colonizers rush to the New World, united by a common purpose: to turn their dreams into reality. Some dream of getting rich by trading New World goods. Some dream of conquest, and building an empire. Some dream of peace, adoration, and love. Some will succeed, and others will fail. But fortune always favors the brave.

He enjoyed the city's splendor from the balcony of the palace. It was dazzling, worthy of the Gods' envy- if they even exist. He felt something soft and warm embrace him from behind. Arms wrapped around his belly. "What are you thinking about?" she asked while sniffing his back. "Would you believe me if I said that I was thinking about you?" he turned around and feasted his eyes upon her pretty face. "I wouldn't" she shook her head and grinned. "Why?" "Because I've fallen for your sweet words many times before and I will not fall into your trap again" He whispered to her ears, "What if I say that I'll give you the world?" "Cliché" she smirked "What if I say, that I'll give my life for you?" "Too tragic" she laughed "What if I say that" he rubbed his nose against hers "I will love you with all my heart" She smiled "Then I'll have no choice but to fall for your sweet words again" ***************** Hello readers!

Hao Xuan was transported to a brand new place along with the rest of humanity. The novel follows his adventures through this vast new plane, fighting men and beasts alike, making friends, finding love, and etching out his own existence in the vast universe. All the monsters from your dreams, stories, and movies are real in this fantastical place. Authors Note: I know its a bit slow at the start, my objective is to paint a complete picture of what's happening around Hao Xuan. His and his companion's reactions will be as realistic as possible. I'm planning on building up to great wars and horrible massacres where many new and powerful characters will be unveiled. I want you guys to feel connected to them so its gonna be a bit wordy. And I know it might seem like things have taken a big turn out of nowhere around chapter 14, but I assure you that if you keep reading, it will ALL make sense (around chap 92 I believe is where its explained). Remember, EVERYTHING is connected, more or less. The most insignificant things could have a huge impact on the story or the biggest thing could not influence it at all, at least not from what you can see. The whole point of the novel is for you to be as surprised as the main character, feel what he is feeling etc, so some things have to be kept hidden. You won't always see things from every perspective. My advice, relax, put on some good music and read, its gonna be an "experience" if I can get my vision out to you guys properly.

'Til Kingdom Comes — The Banished Prince
'Til Kingdom Comes — The Banished Prince

During the period of 1337-1453, a terrible war broke in Medieval England and that period was called (Hundred Year's War) and a huge turmoil ensued between the England and France with the involvement of rebels as well as opportunists. Prince Audemars Macleod, a descendent of King Richard Macleod of Darlington had barely managed to escape with his life when the Manor he was living in was besieged by rebels in 1440, when he was just barely 18 years old. Let us travel through time and relive the experiences of this young Prince as he was forced to 'banished' and survive with some followers they entrusted their lives with him. Little did he realise that he was actually living in the past of his future and had no recollection of anything except when he was narrated by a Seer that had been inducted as a permanent resident of the town he founded later. *This is a fictional world. Most plants, vegetables, fruits and certain animals didn't exist in England that time. *Almost all novels start off with a system. This does not reveal any hint of a system until you get to almost halfway through the novel. * Mobsters are included in the later chapters of this novel too. *This is a slow grind so bear with it as the storyline develops. Thank you and happy reading...

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?

Reasons why you should read this: 1) A story where the characters develop with time 2) well written hardly any mistakes. So it is fluently read without headache. 3) A story with several story arch that obviously is developed to some degree before written 4)an author that takes his time to redo stuff when he thinks it’s not good enough 5) An MC that isn‘t op but simply too knowledgeable for his time 6) Interesting not overdrawn characters that do not pout and cry anime style 7) great story 8) if you like this you should read it and leave some stones for the author!

It's way better than the vast majority of novel on this website that's for sure. I have nothing but praise for this novel. Most Kingdom building novel are simply retarded so it's nice to read something that both make sense and is enjoyable.

One of the best novel you'll ever find in this site, so I suggest you to try and read it. I'm sure you'll be captured by the journey of Corco. The novel is centered on kingdom building, so if you like the genere you can't, I mean it, miss it.

It's incredible, and forgive the oxymoron but it has credible world-building and characters that aren't fucking retarded without a logical explanation, the names are a bit weird, but once you think about the fact that it's a different world it makes sense, and, a god-send of most stories, it has a map! 10/10, the only grammatical error I've seen so far is accidentally saying teh instead of the in like chapter 60

This novel is the best kingdom building novel on this site. It doesn't delve into useless filler nor change perspectives like a mad man. It's follows our young trans migrator as he navigates this world with his modern knowledge. You'll enjoy how he uses his wits to survive encounters and theres enough of action that it isnt just talking. Five stars all the way.

Wow, this ist an incredible story! What I like the Most is, that the characters actually act like People would. My only critizism is, that it took me far too long to find this gem. Author, add some tags!

This novel is one of the best novels on this site. It follows a story of someone with modern knowledge thrust into a foreign world where he uses his wits to survive. The novel contains much political intrigue as it's rationale with the MC being unable to strongarm his way through most situations(politics look down on that sort of thing).

I've found this novel when searched for kingdom building novels. I'm writing this review (actually my first review here) because this frustrating "has not enough reviews" is unfair to this well written novel and I believe can deal harm and demotivate author. Unfortunately there is not so much of kingdom building currently (as of chapter 40), first book is focused more on introduction of characters, merchant stuff and brandy (you know the deal, as usual divine knowledge from the other world makes genius prince somewhat richer, in this case knowledge is about brandy but not only about it, though). Second book focuses on political stuff and... brandy. So far author delivered everything promised in synopsis and that is good. Surely there are some not very polished plot twists, background setting and story development, personally I find it unbelievable that there are no navigation instruments yet when there are lengthy sea travels and guns in the world. But whatever, it is fantasy world after all. First book covers about five years of main character life, but I didn't feel that story is rushed. Considering all things together there are no THAT BIG and obvious plot holes, character decisions seems logical and rational, fitting setting. There are different religions in this novel and they seem to affect politics. No much focus on cultivation as in the most Chinese novels with levels, qi and stuff. No gaming elements. Magic is not mentioned explicitly, however there is some kind of mysterious stuff I guess. Battle scenes are reasonably detailed, characters are powerful but not completely overpowered. No questionable romance, no harem, no all this crap, at least yet. No misogyny, though. As far as I remember there were no any female characters until last couple of chapters. BTW, chapters itself are lengthy enough. Overall this is one of the most interesting novels I've read on this site up to date. If you enjoy Release That Witch, Kingdom's Bloodline or Rise of the Lord, then you're likely to enjoy this novel as well, though this novel is different from the mentioned once.

Opens with the BEST use of lye ever in a novel... Volume 1 is good (really good by webnovel standards), but it's in Volume 2 where the author's progression and story shows maturity and strong growth... it's a that point and beyond that this work shows a true publishing house quality. I believe another reviewer puts things into a really nice summation: One of the best hidden gems in this site. The story is great, the pacing is just about right, characters (mc and minor chars) are relatable, villains are amazing, world is alive and colorful, in short, highly recommend this novel to anyone whose looking for something unique to read. - In terms of characters you won't find an OP mc here who appears just to slap every villain dead and win all time. - The mc is an intelligent type who uses plans and strategies to defeat his enemies but he does not always win so you root for him to learn and win the next time. - I also like how the minor characters in this story are alive and are given their own opportunity to shine. They are not just background props like in other novels where you forgot there are other characters around the mc because the author spent a chapter concentrated on the mc. - people in the story's world have their own peculiarities and culture which helps in the world building. Oh, and there are also maps released by the author. - speaking of villains, these are not your typical cliche villains, they're actually intelligent and powerful in their own right. MC has to actually used his all manipulate and outwit his first villain.

Best empire building story I have read as of yet. Character development is also really good. Initially lacked any female.roles except when they served a functionality but the writer introduces some halfway the story.

This is my second review of this novel after I've finished reading through the third book. === TL;DR: Who is this novel for? === It is for those who like balanced kingdom building without litRPG elements. You are likely to enjoy this novel if you like kingdom building elements in the following novels: "The red lands", "Release that witch", "Rise of the lord", "I am the monarch", "The Union", to some extent "Common sense of a duke's daughter". Comparing to some of those and others, this novel packs more plot into chapters, has less focus on fine-grained technology details, less attention to economics, more to power gain, complex but not over-complicated politics, no harems or reverse harems, no cultivation as a foundation of the plot, no stereotypical rebirth and revenge story. This novel is not completely focused on army building or tactics in battle after battle. == World == Realistic fantasy in medieval period. There are different human nations, no any beast types, mythological monsters or something like this was mentioned and I don't expect them to appear out of the blue. Different nations and continents have different religions, this affects countries interactions and drives subplots sometimes. Different countries have different cultural traits, e.g. nobility behaves differently towards merchants. There is no magic, some people are more powerful as they are cultivating. Technology level as you would expect from middle ages, though some inventions from real world don't exist. There are primitive guns, however wars are still more powered by archers and swordsmen. Highlights: * no gaming elements (levels, skills, etc), no system * no focus on cultivation, it just exists * style is not completely dark, but not too lightweight or slapstick comedy, though there are occasional jokes here and there. It is well balanced. == Plot == Prince Corco was exiled to another continent by his father, he has experienced some hardships and gets some knowledge from the other world at some time. It is not transmigration like in usual isekai, more like getting memories but not personality and no knowledge of future events. This stuff doesn't make him super powerful, doesn't give him some cheat skills and so on. It is not precise knowledge of how to build nuclear fusion reactor having technology of assembling wheel with wooden sticks, he has more or less general knowledge of the modern world. Prince uses the knowledge to his advantage and generates some profit in order to return home (book 1). Political crisis happens in prince's motherland and party struggles to get stable foothold in theirs own country, which ends with more hardships and difficult decisions are made (book 2). After reclaiming right for the throne, but not throne itself, main character starts governing territory and gathers power. He introduces a couple of inventions, establishes new policies, interacts with local nobility and boosts up production and trade of local products. Meanwhile conflict builds up gradually and full scale war is on horizon (unreleased yet book 4). There were couple of relatively small scale battles in first books, they are detailed enough to be not shy of violence, but without extreme gore. I like books 1 and 3 more, even though book 2 has some of the most emotional to me moments in the novel so far. Highlights: * this is story about bunch of friends moving to their goal of building a kingdom * complex political plot supported by backstories and balance of political powers * sometimes story leaps into future, moves a bit fast, but in general pace is adequate == Characters == In general, main characters are well developed, have backstories and believable social interactions with other characters. Sometimes I feel that a person behaves out of character but not that often. In first book all characters were male, later some female characters appear, not weak and not strong, they are not focus of the story. Characters don't progress through story as super-charged dominating machines, they have hard obstacles on their ways, need to deal with setbacks, difficult or wrong decisions. I felt that some characters were initially introduced as a bit comical and somewhat shallow personages (e.g. alchemist), then they gained more depth and weight in story. Highlights: * characters are reasonable, theirs behaviour and decisions are understandable from theirs backstories. * they are not out of a binary world, but are written with shades of grey. Enemies are (mostly) not just enemies for the sake of being evil, they have reasons, believes and goals. * no harem and no misogyny, no romantic relationships so far
