A cliche fantasy story, an unnamed hero (at times mistaken for a heroine) is in an unknown land where he will inevitably decide the fate of the people and defeat some great enemy. With that said, the story begins with our hero finding himself in a dungeon full of jewels. Gathering some jewels, he is chased out by goblin hybrids and is saved by a party consisting of a high elf, wizard, dwarf and warrior. After saving the hero, the main hero joins the party where they begin their quest, first to a holy temple, and then to meet with the Gold Dragon
The characters in this fantasy are pretty cliche with a mystical hero possessing strange but unrivaled powers, a cliche dwarf with a temper shorter than his height, a cocky warrior, a calm high elf, and a wise wizard. With that said, it is during the comedic moments that these characters differ from their character templates, and become something more than just another person.
Drawing Style
BEAUTIFUL artwork, and incredible action scenes, this korean manwha is truly great in drawing style. The ugly ogres are ugly but cool, the women are beautiful, the dwarves are short, and the humans are...human.
The funny moments are funny, and the epic moments are epic, making it an enjoyable read over and over again
One of the better less famous korean manwha, ID may fill the cliche templates of a normal fantasy, but it surpasses the expectations of the reader. It is also because some components are so cliche that it is so good. With so many people trying to be original, it is refreshing to have something that isn't original in its character type, but is original in how it delivers the action and comedy.

old review by iluvatar751 on June 5th, 2013, 1:13pm Rating: 1

this review is old and the manhwa has advanced much this review is not acurate
also i dont agree with it being cliche even at the beggining
cliche vs typical by Grumpy on March 16th, 2010, 5:27pm Rating: 2

This reviewer doesn't seem to know the difference between cliche and typical. This story takes place in a typical rpg-game like theme. Themes and genres are not something you can evaluate for cliche vs not cliche. Additionally, the overall story itself is quite original. It's rather impossible to call the story part cliche. I'll admit various characters' first impression being pretty cliche though.

I may be just commenting on an outdated review though. bigrazz
Think you guys misunderstood something... by RilleL on November 24th, 2007, 6:30am Rating: 3

You're suppose to rate the review, not the manga/manhwa.
And it's way too short for one thing. The whole enjoyment section is only one sentence.

Great so far I have read to CH 32 , it as not very cliche even if it was art and comic/epic moments would make up for it.

It is not so much cliche. I think you are misusing the term. Just 'cause it follows classical fantasy template (party makeup) and DNDish story setting. Not DND per say but it goes with the conventions of it a la Record of Lodoss war.
