Since I got my long-awaited level-up, I’d like to allocate STP and SKP. As a matter of fact, I have already decided where to invest my SKP. I’m going to raise fire, water, wind, earth, and restoration magic by one stage each.

I was able to raise them to level 1 by allocating three points in fire to earth magic, and five points into restoration magic. As for why I chose those five skills, it was because I assumed the four elemental magics would be easy to use for synthesis. Restoration magic was chosen since I wanted a skill to heal.

Thus, I learned four offensive magic attacks, which shot a “Flame Ball”, “Water Ball”, Wind Ball”, and “Land Ball” from my hands, and the recovery magic “Heal”. Moreover, if I adjusted the flight distance of Water Ball and Flame Ball, they could be used for daily life, which was a happy surprise.

Now, where should I put my SKP? I better think carefully…
I’m drawing a blank. What allocation would be best?

To be honest, if this was a video game, I should probably put my points into HP and D (Defense) while at a low level, but this is reality. Although, I can’t deny these game-like characteristics. My evasion and attack speed will probably go up with S (Quickness)… On the other hand, I shouldn’t neglect C (Dexterity) either. Since I learned magic, I’d also like to raise MP and W (Magic Power).

This takes a lot of thought, doesn’t it…? I wonder, will I worry like this on each level-up?
This is hard~.

Rustle, Rustle

Something came out of the thicket, again? Honestly, that’s so sudden, you know.
…It’s a weasel this time?

It was only slightly bigger than a normal weasel, but its canines1 were long and sharp.
That’s the second rodent2 in a row.

This is a bad time. I’m currently trying to think. Please go somewhere else.

While I thought that, the weasel’s eyes took on a sharper glint and it bared its canines even more, maybe since it was eager. I immediately chanted a Wind Ball, but it managed to avoid the attack.

…What a pain.

It was faster than the rabbit from before. It came my way and bit me.

“Ow…!?”

It hurt like the dickens. I tried to kick it, when it got close to me, but it dodged again.
This thing is super annoying.

Since it’s come to this, I’ll increase S.
I allocated five points to it.

It came to bite me again, but this time I was able to dodge. Though it was by a hair’s breadth. Then, I kicked at it.

“Ggeh!”

While it looked like that did considerable damage, it apparently didn’t bring it down in a single attack. So, I raised A by three points. Since I wanted to defeat the weasel before it bit me again, I chased after it. And for sure, I was able to land a kick, which defeated it.

Still, it bit my foot at the same time.

That does it. Do I have to invest almost all my STP into strength?
It can’t be helped, let’s allocate them like that.

…Come to think of it, I need to make a weapon afterwards. Taking that into consideration, I better bring up C, too.

I allocated five points into C. Of the remaining seven points, I invested one into HP, one in D, two in MP, and three in W.
Well, I think this distribution is pretty good.

Incidentally, I have brought down two foes, but did they not drop any items?

On that thought, I gave the weasel and rabbit a closer look, and noticed purple-colored spheres, that hung in mid-air, making them appear like souls which left their bodies. This shocked me somewhat, but, without knowing why, I touched the spheres.

I see, are these drop items? Since the same things emerged from two monsters with a different appearance, might this be something like a game currency? So, is this money? Well, I’ll find out about that sooner or later, right?

Those corpses, though… let’s put them to good use.



 

Footnotes:

  1. It just says frontal teeth in the original, but I assume that’s what it means, since weasels are carnivores.
  2. Someone didn’t pay attention in biology. Only rabbits are rodents, weasels aren’t.
