Charlie Naylor is a good guy, but he's never been great at multi-tasking. When Larynk, the God of Corn, sends Charlie into a fantasy game, he just can't help himself trying. By combining his love of daggers, magic, and animals, he becomes the Blademage Beastmaster.
With a dangerous new pet, a deadly selection of daggers, and some awesome spells, he must make allies and kill monsters as he walks his path to glory. If he can do that, then he might just create a legacy for himself.
He used work in an office where he pushed paper, filled in spreadsheets, and made coffee. Now, he casts, conjures, stabs, and tames.

This is kind of a XP grind story. The main character (MC), Charlie, gets transported to a game world by some gods who have a bet. Once there he grinds for XP. Whether that’s doing quests, killing monsters, or something else that’s mostly what the story is. It’s very slice of life, in that there’s no save the world plot or anything. Just follow the MC as he unlocks skills, increases his magic, gets ever increasingly good loot, makes some allies, and basically grinds out the XP.
Fun if you’re in the mood for an uncomplicated action oriented story. I thought things went a little too easy for the MC. Everything just worked out to him without him taking chances or ever failing. Heck, technically the MC can die in this game world and would respawn, but he never does. Still, not bad.
