29-sai dokushin isekai de jiyuu ni ikita…katta
Ch.3 When I was training, I was confessed.
After I finished buying leather armor set and quarterstaff. I gone back to town.
Next, the inn.
Let's look at the map in the menu first, and confirm it's location.
The inn that was recommended is not far away, so I start walking through stone paved road.
They're not many pointy eared people like Luise, Cat is not even be seen.
It seem like there are beastman with animal ear and tail, but they're not that many in this town.
They're minority, huh?
This town atmosphere is a lot like middle age of Europe. But the stone building is more popular.
Wooden building like an adventurer guild is fewer.
A lot of stone building mean there aren't any earthquake here? Because if there is one, it would a total disaster.
How many population in this town? From the look in a map it's look wide too. I would have taken several day to explore the town completely.
I can't keep my voice down, when I arrived at the Central plaza.
There are a lot of people like Tokyo, and a lot of carriages is passing by too.
Shouting voices can be heard a lot more than peoples chatting voices.
Well, either blending in a crowd of people, or risk of being run over by carriage is a No-no.
So, I decide to just walk around at the outer edge of plaza.
Crossroad town divided into 4 districts, Northern, Eastern, Western, Southern and Central plaza is at it center.
By the way, I'm coming from Eastern district
Eastern district is business zone that have Adventurer guild, Merchant guild and other kind of shops.
Northern district is for the riches. Southern on the opposite is for normal peoples which can also call poor peoples zone.
At the Western, There is church, government agency and soldier barrack.
The inn which I was recommended, is in the Southern district near the Central plaza.
It didn't take much time to find the inn.
It have a sign which have a picture of the bed, painted in deep red color, and the name is "Burning golden bed."(TLN: 灼熱の金床亭: Shakunetsu no kinshō-tei Weird name right?)
This is the place. No mistake.
When I get inside, I see short body old man with fully muscular body at the reception counter. Spacious zone at the back seem to be the dining hall for the guesses.
When old man saw me, he gave me business smile.
"Welcome to Burning golden bed, you come to stay?"(Inn's old man)
"Ah, old man at the Adventurer guild has recommended this place, how much for one night stay here?"(Taichi)
"If you got recommend from Adventurer guild, then price for one night including breakfast will be 2 big coppers and 5 copper, If you eat lunch and diner here too, I will give some extra for free"(Inn's old man)
I still doesn't sure about money rates in this world.
But if I comparing this price to weapon and armor I just bought, It doesn't seem expensive.
"For now, 10 days stay please."(Taichi)
"Then it's 2 silvers and 5 big coppers."(Inn's old man)
I'm starting to understand this, 10 coppers = 1 big copper, 10 big coppers = 1 silver.
And from shopping at the weapon store, I know that 10 silvers = 1 gold.
Then this big coin with hole in the middle is 1 big silver = 5 silvers.
"Are these enough?"(Taichi)
"Big silver coin is it? Then changes will be 2 silvers and 5 big coppers. I will checking you in, so lend me your adventurer card"(Inn's old man)
My guessed was right.
After this, I just need to understand how much 1 copper coin worth. Then I'll understand this world economy better.
And my purse is now thin, Next immediate issue is to gather information for earning money.
Also about conductor thing before. If I don't know basic common sense in this world, I might get into trouble soon.
"Hoiii—-Pinea! Come and lead guess to his room!"(Inn's old man)
After he finished writing down details from the adventurer card, old man called out for someone from the dining hall.
He is so loud….If I consider his height and high energy, He might not be human but dwarf or somethings.
Young girl with cute apron running out from dining hall, while energetically replied.
So small, she must be around 10 years old? Her height isn't even reach my waist.
"Guess-san, I'll show you the room, come here come here"(Pinea)
The girl, Pinea lead me to 2nd floor.
The stair step is so short, it must designed for the inn owner.
The I got have window on the roadside.
There's not enough light at this time, but in the evening, sunlight will shine through the room. The bed is clean too, I can rest at this place with no problem.
The room is around 5 tatamis? But it have bed too, so it doesn't look too spacious.
Even if table beside the window that faced roadside look so plain, we still have one. It must be for writing and work, maybe.
"This is a good room, bed is clean too."(Taichi)
"You can expect for food too, dwarf's meal is good match for an adventurer."(Pinea)
Pinea smile cheerfully.
That smile make you feel relaxed.
With that enthusiasm, I should give a good reply.
"I would like to have some lunch right away, is that okay?"(Taichi)
"Of course, and we'll add some extra too."(Pinea)
I receive room key from her and put it in inventory together with quarterstaff, then going down stairs.
At the dining hall I see a lot of adventurer like peoples, did they stay here too?
When I take a glance at their equipment, they look a lot more experienced. In contrast, I look like newbie who just wore his first armor.
"Here is today's lunch set, it's 3 coppers"(Pinea)
When Pinea placed food tray on the table, I gave her 3 copper coins and starting my first anotherworld meal.
Menu are fried cabbage like vegetable with some animal intestines, vegetable soup and black bread.
Fried vegetable taste like miso, strong but delicious. That cabbage like thing is gone through fire properly, intestine also have good smell like garlics.
On the opposite, soup is bland and bread is hard, I need to soak it in soup before I can eating it. And look like other people also do this too.
It look like soup is the "extra".
"Well. what's to do next"(Taichi)
Should I rest for today, or should I strolling around the town.
When I think about it, I still haven't try pressing all button in menu. Let's go back to the room and try it.
And if there is still some time after, I should go and training with quarterstaff at the Adventurer guild. Or hunt some boa is also not a bad idea.
"I'm full, so I'll go back to my room."(Yaichi)
After I call out to Pinea whois working in the kitchen, I go back to my room.
When I open menu, I find out that I've leveled up. From the test maybe?
STR, AGI, VIT is rising up, is this work of Physical enhancement skill? But DEX isn't move an inch.
Raising in POW seem normal, it's the same as physical training, Max HP become 69, MP become 164.
Looking at it again, maybe it go after VIT and POW, because digits that has been raised are 13 and 17.
To sum it up, rise status this time can't tell me anything, and I still can't figure out it principle.
Also I gain another 6 skill points. I want to raise some skill to Lv.3, but for now let's go for diversity.
Too vigilant? No, it's good like this. I don't want any risk, efficiently is the best cause I don't want to die.
For quarterstaff handling, I raise my Polearm skill to Lv.2. The rest 3 point is distribute to Magic power, Magic recovery and Non-elemental magic to Lv.1.
Just raising Magic power by 1 Lv. It spike up from 164 to 246, it's rising by 1.5 time just like Physical enhancement skill.
I thought POW would rise up to, but it's just MP.
I try to calculating my MP recovery time, from before it need full day to fill up my loss MP.
It also rise up by 1.5 time too.
Currently, it's 4 minutes per 1 MP………….I still can't shoot magic like gatling gun.
I need to think about solution.
Non-elemental magic to Lv.1, let me use magic called "Magic arrow". I try shoot it in the air 1 time.
Seem like it just normally shot out non-elemental arrow out. But because of that it can be used on many target.
When I finished learning and leveling up skills, I try pressing button in the menu.
Just as I try pressing, there is a option to leave a widgets on.
So, I set to left Hp and MP, direction and minimap on.
Let's try checking inventory details.
First adventure set.
Which is a bag filled with various tools for adventuring, such as blankets, torch, lighter, knife, 10 metre rope.
Next is remaining money, 1 big silver coin. 6 silver coins, 18 big copper coins, 17 copper coins.
And there is 1 Small boa's leather, 1 Small boa's meat, 2 Small boa's corpses,1 Big hornet's corpse.
Remaining are dried fruit, dried meat, 3 packs of crispy bread and 1 leather bag for storing water.
I don't know how many I can store, because there is no weight showing. It look like it can ignore size and weight of a stored items.
Also, If I lump items together in the same package it will be counted as 1, just like adventure set.
2 Small boa's corpses is also in the same slot, it's convenient.
I just remembered that carriage in town still need to put the same thing on top of each others.
It's mean this ability can't be seen as normal.
But I still need to investigate just to know, that people can accept it or not.
I'll try bring out items from inventory at some shop.
After that, I continuing to press menu buttons till 3 p.m.
What I get is, if I put item in tool slots, If I just think about it, it'll be ready in my hand.
Only God call, that I've not touched.
I can just took it easy and lying on the bed, but let's go check some quests at Adventurer guild, to see what it look like.
Corpses, leather, meat, I wanna sell it out if possible.
Well…, do I need salt to tend the meat?
By the way, if I left it like this, will it rot?
Un, there is still a lot to learn.
I told old man and Pinea who is preparing dinner, that I'll go to Adventurer guild in loud voice and leave.
Mp is 37 left. It's have the same amount at the time when I just come to guild.
"Ohh, you look more like adventurer."(Guild's old man)
When I entered, that old man is calling out to me so I waved back at him for a little formality, and take a look at the quest that was pinned on a board.
There are also safe quest like doing chores in town to patrol around town scape.
When I realized, I can just reading everything normally, whatever.
Next is subjugate monsters or dangerous beast around here, difficult is varies, but it already have restrict placed on.
Just as I thought, dangerous ones are the quest that want you to go to somewhere uncharted.
Or monster subjugation.
When I look around for some finishable quest, I spot a Small boa hunt quest.
Look like it will be turn into food.
It request 1 full body.
I took request notice out form board and show it to the old man at the information counter.
"Old man, this quest please."(Taichi)
"I'm Ulz, let me see? Hunt some Small boa huh? If you're being careful then it should be fine."(Ulz)
"Truth is, I'm already done."(Taichi)
Then I take out Small boa's corpse from inventory and place it on the counter.
"WHOA!! Hey, it will dirty the counter! Take it to specify counter that way!"(Ulz)
I apologize normally, and put corpse back to inventory.
Old man leave the counter and I follow him.
When we arrive at specify counter for receiving quest items, I took out Small boa's corpse again.
It's still warm, because I store it away instantly after I've killed it?
That's mean the flow of time stopped in the inventory.
"You have treasure box too? It's rare."(Ulz)
When I asked back, old man Ulz is surprised.
"If you don't have one, how can you took out a corpse? Is that not treasure box?"(Ulz)
"W..well, It's called treasure box huh? I studied magic with my grandpa in the countryside, and he called it inventory."(Taichi)
"Hoh.. Well, I didn't know much much about magic anyway."(Ulz)
Old man Ulz didn't think too much about it, and checking out the corpse.
When he finished checking, he call out other guild's employer to take the Small boa's corpse away.
"Un, No probs, quest finished."(Ulz)
Old man Ulz apply seal on the request notice and gave me reward, 5 big copper coins.
Ho, pay rate is good.
"I still have 1 Small boa's corpse with 1 leather pelt, also 1 Giant hornet's corpse too. Won't you buy it too?"(Taichi)
"Ah, let's me take a look at it first. If it's in a good shape, I'll buy it at the same 5 big coppers."(Ulz)
"I leave it to you."(Taichi)
I'm thinking of how to get dispose of its, and now I got 5 big copper coins from just deliver it, today I got total of 1 silver coin.
It make me think, being an adventurer is not too bad at finding money.
"Just on first day, you already done this much. I have high hope for you."(Ulz)
Old man Ulz is smiling widely and slap at my shoulder, then he go back to information counter.
His smiling face is making me uneasy……..
He'll do unreasonable things for sure.
Let's toss trouble some things aside and go train.
Piece, pry, beat down, swinging, sweeping while doing spin kick to the back, jump and piece, fill the gap with magic attack…….. Um, it's easier to use than I thought.
Pole arms skill can be used with spear and long handle weapons too, isn't this more nicer than Sword skill?
Problem is, it harder to use in narrow place.
When I've confirmed all my move, I sit at the bench on corner of training ground.
Un, I should bought some towel.
When I think about it, I still doesn't have a spare clothes.
I should hurry and go buy some.
"Umm… Can I take a bit of your time?"
While thinking with water bag in hand, someone called out to me.
When I look up I see a girl wearing a leather armor.
Red brown hair tie up in ponytail, big round eyes that reflecting curiosity, and good shaped face, she is very beauty girl.
Because her face is of European, so I can't really tell her ages. But it shouldn't be above 20.
"Well, what is it?"(Taichi)
I put water bag back to inventory, and look around hastily.
There is two person looking here with weird gaze.
She look down and trembles.
At first I think she is swindler, but that might not be the true.
When I said that, she raised her face.
"PLEASE GO OUT WITH ME!"(Girl)
Training ground become quiet instantly.
And there are warm gaze here and there.
How the hell that it's become like this.
Crossroad's population is about 10,000.
There are about 500 adventurers, and half of it is Rank E adventurers.
