Good day my dear readers, my PC will be fixed by today, and I’ll start to do all of my debts afterwards, once again I’m really sorry for the inconveniences.
Also, I’m still looking for a native speaker and fantasy lover to help me specifically for this novel.
Hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org if someone interested for it.
Enjoy the chapter~
Chapter 1 Part 5
L-Level up…? I was dumbfounded by that sudden message. No, if I can just calm down for a second, it makes total sense. I’m at level 1 and I defeated a level 300 enemy. Although my attack power was 1, it might be that the attack power of [Absolute Spear] was so high that it could overcome even a 300-level difference.
“This [Absolute Spear] is freaking awesome…”
Moreover, there are still a lot of weapons of the same power level as [Absolute Spear] on hand. It would be terrifying if I could use them all effectively… Anyway, it said I leveled up, so what’s different?
I displayed the status and check the changes.
Skills: [Appraisal] [Endurance] [Item Box] [Language Comprehension] [True Martial Art: 1]
Titles: [Master of The Door] [Master of The House] [Otherworlder] [Person Who Visited A Different World For The First Time]
No, no, no, no… that’s too much. But the enemy was level 300, so is this normal…? And for every level I gain, all of my stats go up by 10. I don’t know if that’s normal for this world’s inhabitants.
Even so, it was clear that my BP was very unusual compared to anyone else. I knew that for sure thanks to the description of [Person Who Visited A Different World For The First Time].
“I can sort out this BP as I please, right…?”
I could do that, but I was more concerned at the moment about the stuff scattered around where the Bloody Ogre was. I went to check on that first.
Still trembling, I walked over there step by hesitant step.
“What is this stuff?”
The items I found included some kind of palm sized jewel that was a mysterious color, and a splendid fang, similar to that which grew from the Bloody Ogre’s mouth. There was also some dark red, sinister-looking armor.
“Well for now, let’s just take these…”
Thanks to it dying near the gate, I was able to collect them quickly. There weren’t even that many items, but they had an indescribable… aura? Like, they were intimidating? Anyway, even an amateur like me could tell these were amazing items. However, I wouldn’t learn anything else just by looking at it, so I activated the [Appraisal] skill. I was already starting to activate them like it was natural.
[Bloody War Demon’s Great Fang] :: Fangs of the Bloody Ogre. Its fangs are not particularly massive, but when combined with the Bloody Ogre’s bite force, it could easily penetrate the skin of any prey. If processed, it could be made into a sturdy and sharp weapon.
[Magic Stone: Rank B] :: A special ore that can be obtained from magical beasts. The ranks are, in ascending order: F, E, D, C, B, A, S. The higher the rank, the more expensive a stone will be.
[Bloody War Demon’s Body Armor] :: A drop from Bloody Ogres, made from their strong skin and muscle fibers. This armor can’t be scratched by typical attacks. The wearer’s attack power is modified.
[Bloody War Demon’s Gauntlet] :: A drop from Bloody Ogres, made from their strong skin and muscle fibers. This gauntlet can’t be scratched by typical attacks. The wearer’s attack power is modified.
[Bloody War Demon’s Waist Armor] :: A drop from Bloody Ogres, made from their strong skin and muscle fibers. This gauntlet can’t be scratched by typical attacks. The wearer’s agility is modified.
[Bloody War Demon’s Leg Armor] :: A drop from Bloody Ogres, made from their strong skin and muscle fibers. This leg armor can’t be scratched by typical attacks. The wearer’s agility is modified.
The items were overwhelmingly fantastical. Magic stones and fangs… where can I, an ordinary person, use these? No wait, I couldn’t even use armor on modern earth. I didn’t know how to wear it, in the first place. The weapons might still have a use, and for magic stones, I could only see that their rank was indicated.
Moreover, the size of the armor didn’t fit me, being a fat guy, and it’s not possible to equip it. Seriously, how am I supposed to use these?
That said, the body armor was somewhat shaped like the Bloody Ogre’s abdominal muscles, and overall, the gauntlet was somewhat thorny. The waist armor looked just as sharp as the body armor and the gauntlet, and the red cloak was attached. Even the leg armor was very cool, with the feeling that its design was adjusted to match the wearer’s legs.
“I managed to collect all this, but… I’m not sure how to use it.”
I got the feeling that it might not have been good to keep postponing the allocation of BP. With that in mind, I decided to go ahead and distribute the BP this time.
“Hmm… I can’t use magic even if I raise it, and I’d like to increase my attack power anyway.”
I originally liked physical combat styles in games, so I just increased my attack power. (Actually, since I never owned or even played any forms of entertainment like video games, this was just my own delusion!)
At any rate, that amount of magic was enough, since I couldn’t use it anyway, and above all, since I was constantly getting bullied, I felt it was a good idea to also raise my defenses.
“But… even luck…”
Originally, luck, unlike physical strength, wouldn’t go up no matter how hard you tried, but actually, it was now increasing by the same amount as everything else when I leveled up. When I thought about that, I was itching to assign even more points to luck.
“This makes me so excited…”
In the first place, to me, who had never played a game, this situation was becoming more and more like a game. Of course, I was afraid to face that killing intent from before, but this strange situation was still fascinating.
Well, my level increased, and my attack power increased, but there were no other changes in particular. I don’t really care that much, actually ― it just feels good that I could put points into my stats like in games. I thought optimistically, and assigned the BP as I wanted.
And the results…
Skills: [Appraisal] [Endurance] [Item Box] [Language Comprehension] [True Martial Art: 1]
Title: [Master of The Door] [Master of The House] [Otherworlder] [Person Who Visited A Different World For The First Time]
That’s how it was. Magic was something I couldn’t use, and intelligence, while it would be nice if my pure knowledge would also increase because of it, if I thought about it like in games, it would only increase the power of magic, so that’s why I didn’t allocate much to it.
Instead, I tried to improve the balance by raising attack, defense, and agility.
I’m not sure, but it seems unlikely for me to have good luck even if I make a great effort, so that’s why I assigned most of the remaining points into luck. Anyway, that’s what I decided.
“…Nothing’s happened, huh?”
After all, the display was just like in a game, so I didn’t think it would affect my body, right?
“Well, yeah… anyway, I’m tired. Since so many things happened today, let’s go home…”
Wait, this was originally inside my house. While having stupid thoughts like that, I put in a great deal of effort into moving my body (which was no longer disabled from fear like before), and approached the [Door To Another World].
Suddenly a message appeared in front of me.
Items can be converted into money. Would you like to cash in [Bloody War Demon’s Great Fang] [Magic Stone: Rank B] [Bloody War Demon’s Body Armor] [Bloody War Demon’s Gauntlet] [Bloody War Demon’s Waist Armor] [Bloody War Demon’s Leg Armor]?
C-Convert into money?
I didn’t know what it meant for a moment, but then I remembered there was a thing called [Money Conversion] in the door functions I was able to use by acquiring the title [Master of The Door].
“What will happen… if I use this money conversion?”
I didn’t know, but I certainly had no use for those items. However, I removed the pieces of armor from the candidates because I might wear them someday, and used [Money Conversion] on the rest.
[Blood War Demon’s Great Fang] cashed in for 500,000 Yen. [Magic stone: Rank B] cashed in for 1,000,000 Yen.
I let out a stupid voice on reflex. Bundles of paper fell from an empty space, as if to deal me the final blow.
I didn’t understand what was happening. When I looked closely, they were bundles of ¥10,000 bills. I picked them up in stunned silence and confirmed the total was indeed the 1.5 million yen displayed in the message.
I used every method I knew of to see if the money was fake, but it was absolutely authentic. Instinctively, I used the [Appraisal] skill to examine it.
[1.5 Million Yen] :: Obtained by cashing in items from another world. Genuine ¥10,000 bills created by manipulating information on Earth, such as serial numbers, so as not to disrupt the global economy.
I was so confused. What was that about manipulating information on Earth!? No wait, I know it’s genuine! But… I didn’t know how much I could believe in [Appraisal], but if the contents of the appraisal were true, I had just earned 1.5 million yen.
It may have been vague so far, but I could only think that it had told the truth so far. In the first place, this door seems to be something that even God doesn’t know much about, and it wouldn’t be strange that it could manipulate information on Earth. My brain was fried from all the new information coming in, and I could hardly think anymore.
“Y-yeah… it’s really 1.5 million yen… What am I supposed to do with it?”
Well, considering how harsh my life had been so far, I was extremely grateful for it. I was useless, and I wasn’t smart, either [ED: Yes, we noticed], even though people said I was a good-for-nothing, and that I should think and act more carefully. If there’s immediate profit to be had, I’ll go for it easily.
“I’ll accept it.”
But I couldn’t just put it in the bank, so I threw it into [Item Box] with all the armor. Yes, let’s use it little by little. I’d been given a great shock at the last minute, and went back home in a daze.
