Zorian, a mage in training, only wanted to finish his education in peace. Now he struggles to find answers as he finds himself repeatedly reliving the same month. 'Groundhog Day' style setup in a fantasy world.

It's amazing but wtf is it doing on a fanfic website?

It's a really original and well written story, but it;s _just not a fanfic_. Ppl, come on...

A long Groundhog Day loop with consequences and urgency. What's not to like?
DuskStar | 7 months ago *

Sufficiently analyzed magic, a Groundhog Day loop that manages to keep a sense of risk around many encounters, and massive worldbuilding - this ticks quite a few boxes for me. I consider this good enough to spend money on, and thanks to Patreon I can.

Very good

Very good

Uniquely Enrapturing

A rich plot builds upon itself every restart in this completely refreshing take on the "Groundhog Day" trope. Zorian, the main character, is careful and measured, a perfect foil to his counterpart in an increasingly complicated time loop.

One of the best fantasy stories I've read
Entity | 8 months ago

Character development is very well done. The main characters is competent, the world is very well thought out and the plot is compelling.

Interesting but flawed
Nemrut | 9 months ago

This is a really interesting story. The time loops are compelling, as are the characters Zorian interacts with. Especially fond of his relationship with his little sister. The story leverages its timeloop mechanics in a great way to have Zorian grow in various ways as he handles the new information he receives in regards to others. However, haven't caught up on the new chapters in a while now as at the point I was, the story had lost a lot of steam and was dragging with out of academy stuff. It got bogged down with technical stuff and the overarching plot, which to be honest, isn't as interesting as the character related stuff. The fantasy aspects, world building and magic are all interesting enough, really love the spiders here. So yeah, if you are in the mood for a good fantasy story and time travel, you could definitely do worse. Need to get up to date again in this.

Amazing world-building with brilliant story
Damy | 9 months ago

Excellent grammar and length - only gets better as it goes on. Main character(s) are interesting and varied, and quite realistic. The mystery of wtf is going on is truly amazing, with turns and twists that one may even guess at if one uses all information present!

Great world-building, Interesting characters
BadSpeiling | 9 months ago

Great groudhog day style story set in a new and interesting world. Manages to keep tension and quality in a time travel fic.

High Fantasy, Great Worldbuilding
Canadiak | 9 months ago

It's a fairly standard-ish magic fantasy world with magic and monsters, but more than enough unique traits and geopolitics to make it fun for people who like worldbuilding.

The story of Z.Z. and the quest to not only survive, but thrive.
ThePotatoeGamer | 9 months ago

An absolutely fantastic story. It's a very carefully woven tapestry where almost every thread becomes relevant again. We get to see a phenomenal development of Zorian, he goes from a touchy, angsty, and overshadowed teen, into a badass, considerate, and understanding masterful mage.

Groundhog day meets munchkinery
ficdb_admin | 9 months ago *

Crisp prose, LOTR-level worldbuilding, an extensive and distinct cast of characters, and intrigue that has me eagerly awaiting every new chapter. Kudos Domagoj Kurmaic, you've captured the hearts and minds of the LitRPG and rational community, and for good reason. If you haven't started reading this, do so now - you won't be disappointed.
