Before heading over to Rumberg, Luna and I will be traveling on Raptor to a neighbouring town where we paid for a caravan that was heading towards our destination. The distance to Rumberg was too far for us to rely on Raptor for any battles that might occur, so I decided to travel there with a caravan instead. For caravans, although we were required to pay a fee, we had escorts that served as our bodyguards during the trip. So our safety during the trip was guaranteed. However the downside is that the caravan travels at a slow pace. Most likely, it would take us two days to arrive at Rumberg.
As I looked back from the carriage, the village could no longer be seen in the distance. When I left the village, one of the people who came to see me off was Nikita. She cried as I was preparing to leave, telling me that she wanted to follow me. She was willing to leave behind her family and the bar to accompany me on my journey. However, I could not allow such a child to abandon her family and their business just to follow me. After trying to convince her for half an hour, she finally gave in and accepted my departure.
After arriving at the town, Luna and I joined the caravan where I was offered a high price for Raptor. Although the amount was tempting, the bond I had with Raptor was priceless and rejected the offer.
I feel that I am starting to become sentimental. Is this because of my age?
[Youyaaa. I'mm boreddddd.] (Luna)
While i was lost in thought, Luna was fed up with the journey.
[The trip will only last two days. It won't be long.] (Youya)
[But the trip is boring!!!] (Luna)
Well this caravan is unusually large, and there is a large number of escorts. So its expected that the journey will take quite a while. For a child like Luna, it would be quite a dull trip.
[Well then let me explain to you about what we will be doing when we arrive at Rumberg. We will have to do a bunch of administrative matters, attending classes and meeting other people as well as select our class.] (Youya)
[Tell me about the classes!] (Luna)
Luna whose tail looked like it was about to fall asleep became lively as it stood up in anticipation.
[Adventurers are capable of raising their levels by defeating monsters to earn experience points. However, they will be unable to gain experience points unless they have a class. Thus a class has to be chosen before an adventurer can start increasing their levels. Normally the class chosen will be set for life, meaning that the class will be the person's specialisation for the rest of their life. It cannot be changed so it should be chosen carefully.] (Youya)
[The status for each classes differ accordingly to their battle styles. There will be a class correction value added to a person's status depending on their class, adding additional values into various stat parameters. These class correction values added on top of the person's basic status determines their final status.] (Youya)
[Each classes serve a specific role in a party. Generally speaking, there is the avant-garde, and the rear guard. Avant-garde classes serve as the front line for the party, directly confronting monsters and serving as a wall for the backline whereas the rear guard classes directly attack the monsters as well as cover the front line.] (Youya)
[Easy to understand. Luna wants to be an avant-garde! Youya gave me a dagger, I want to use it!] (Luna)
Truth be told, Luna is suited to be in the front lines.
Back when I was playing the game, Beastmen were characters that were only NPCs and unusable for players. It was possible to become friends with NPCs, and the characteristics for NPCs was discovered. Beastmen had increased physical capabilities whereas their magical abilities were decreased. These were stat corrections that are well suited for the Avant-garde.
[Since you want to be a part of the Avant-garde, I will explain the different avant-garde classes. Generally, avant-garde classes have weak magical capabilities but high physical capabilities. The common classes are Warriors, Fighters and Thieves. Warriors specialise in attacking and defending, with high values in their Attack and Defensive parameters. However, as a result their Speed parameters are decreased. Fighters specialise in hand-to-hand combat, having higher Attack parameters and Speed but only to a limited extent. Thus, even if they equip powerful weapons or strong armour, their overall capabilities does not change that much. On the other hand, Thieves have high Speed parameters but their Defense and Attack parameters are decreased. In exchange, they are given special class skills called Exploration Skills.] (Youya)
Luna looked as if her brain was overloaded and unable to take in the information. She tilted her head as she tried to understand the information and failed.
[Youya~, are there any other classes?] (Luna)
[For avant-garde classes, there is another class called Magic Warrior. It is a class that has a high Attack parameter and is the only class capable of using magic.] (Youya)
[That’s the class! It looks like the strongest class to take!] (Luna)
[I am going to stop you right here. That class is out of the question for you. Although it is a class with high Attack parameters and capable of casting magic, that class has a lower Defense parameter as well as physical strength capabilities as compared to the other classes. It can't use Wall either. And although magic can be used, the spells it can used are limited to Intermediate tier. Intermediate magic is far weaker than Advanced magic used by Magic Casters in the backlines. Magic warriors are capable of using offensive magic as well as supportive magic, but they can't cast recovery magic, making their supportive magic far inferior to a normal healer. It is a class capable of doing everything, yet it is weaker than every other class. It is merely a half-baked profession that can't be used in any role.] (Youya)
The job of the avant-garde is to protect the rear guard, while the rear guard covers the avant-garde. The Magic Warrior is unable to act as a shield for the rear guard due to its low defensive capabilities as well as the inability to use Wall. However even if the Magic Warrior was delegated to the rear guard, it is merely an inferior magician. In that case it would be better to choose a full-fledged Magic Caster. Thus Magic Warriors are looked down upon as a weak class and no parties will be willing to accept Magic Warriors.
[I understand. Only choose from Thief, Warrior and Fighter. Hey Youya..] (Luna)
Luna dropped on all fours, and crawled towards me while looking me dead in the eyes.
[What class do you want Luna to pick? I want to serve Youya. I want to be useful to you.] (Luna)
What is this girl doing? Telling me that she wants to serve me with such a cute face.
Well if it's a class i would like…
[If its a class i want in my party, it would be a Thief. Venturing into the dungeons become more convenient if our party has a person with exploration skills.] (Youya)
[I understand, then when we arrive at Rumberg, I will choose the Thief class. Then i can be useful to you!] (Luna)
[Yeah, i would be happy if you did so. I very much would like you to be the Thief in my party.] (Youya)
*Bun**Bun* Luna's ears fluttered up and down.
[Pleasing Youya is my number one joy!] (Luna)
She's a good kid isn't she.
Although what is with her choice of words? Is she sure that she doesn't remember anything?
Anyway, I am glad that I gave this girl a dagger back in the village.
Thieves typically utilise daggers as their main weapons, thus their attacking capabilities are naturally lower as compared to a normal sword. Especially with her compatibility with daggers, i feel that Luna is well-suited to being a Thief. My thoughts were interrupted by the sight of a town appearing in the distance.
[Hey Luna, look outside the window.] (Youya)
[Hmm? What's outside?] (Luna)
Luna opened the windows and tried to squeezed her head out of the window. Her fox ears fluttered in the wind as she stuck her head outside.
[Ah. I can see a large city. It is soooo much bigger than the village Youya was in! And the wall surrounding it is so large too!] (Luna)
[That's our destination. It's the beginning town of Rumberg.] (Youya)
Rumberg is not just the beginning town for adventurers. It is essentially the essence of the country. The country itself revolves around the nurturing of adventurers, and most adventurers start out here to get their classes before becoming actual adventurers.
Although there are other beginning towns for adventurers, there is an important reason why i chose this popular town. Based on my memories of the previous life, there is a hidden room in one of the dungeons here which fixes the level bonus for all stats to the maximum, 3 points per level. Finally, i can free myself from my cursed status.
As i was staring at Luna's fox tail shaking back and forth rapidly, Luna pulled her head back into the carriage.
[Youya, what class are you choosing?] (Luna)
[Magic Warrior.] (Youya)
[Eh? But didn't you tell me that Magic Warriors had the weakest class?] (Luna)
[Yes i did, and it’s the truth. Magic Warriors have the weakest class regardless of their role. They are too fragile for the avant-garde, and too weak for the rear guard. It is the class that can do everything but can't do anything. It is the weakest class. If the person wasn't me.] (Youya)
Even when I was playing the game, the main player base had deemed Magic Warrior to be the weakest class without a doubt. Although they were given recognition for the fact that they were able to cast supportive magic, it wasn't anything too spectacular.
That is, until the Level Reset function was discovered. When it was discovered that a person's level could be reset, another hidden feature was discovered.
That feature, was given the name "Customized Magic".
As a result of that feature, the Magic Warrior's popularity rose tremendously. It was the class that had the potential to become the strongest in the hands of a skilled player.
However, because of this, more people avoided inviting Magic Warriors into their party. The class popularity grew as more people wanted to try out the class. As a result, there were many Magic Warriors who were still weaker than an average player using a common class. It was basically a gamble, and Magic Warriors was the bet.
[Well even if the class is weak, Youya is still strong!] (Luna)
I am glad that Luna was just being Luna. If it was anyone else, I would had been abandoned on the spot.
I am lucky for the presence called Luna.
We were about to arrive at the city.
Now, is truly the start of my second round.
I am also changing my release schedule, to releasing one post every 2 days (If i finish the post in time, it could be everyday). This should roughly translate to 1++ chapters a week, possibly more.
Also, I would like to clarify some of the details that aren't made very clear in the raws.
Firstly, if you guys have noticed, I italicized some terms used in the story, strictly referring to names that indicate the class (Eg. Magic Warrior), items (Bazerato), and tiers (Eg: Intermediate / Advanced) etc.
I did this because I like to have a clear indication of what i am referring to when I am naming certain things in the series. The italicized names are mostly terms that can also be used to indicate a similar term.
Magic Warrior → Class
Magic Warriors → People who chose Magic Warrior as their class
Attack parameter → Attack stat that appears in the status.
Attacking capabilities → The person's overall standard in terms of their offensive capability.
Advanced magic → Tier of magic
Advanced magic → Difficult magic spells (i hope this makes sense to you guys)
Second, would be about the Status that Youya often references in the story.
To be honest, it is unclear about what is actually shown in the status. So far the author hasn't really released a proper status for the readers to reference, so i will just explain my own thoughts on how the statuses work.
Firstly, there is the basic status. So far, the only parameters that i can confirm is Strength and Agility, due to the existence of speed as well as the idea of physical strength in the story. Any other parameters are unclear, so for the rest of this series i will assume that these are the only two parameters until stated otherwise.
Secondly, whenever a person levels up, Their basic status rises by a value of 1-3 points. This is what Youya refers to when he is talking about his "Cursed" status. As it is purely RNG (luck) that determines how many points you get. In his first run to level 50, Youya only got an increase of 1 point every level. So his basic stats only rose a total of 49 points.
Thirdly, everyone has a "Final status" which has slightly different attributes, such as Attack, Defense, Speed and Magic Attack. I just assume that this works similar to Maplestory (if any of you guys even remember that game) where each stat affects the character's damage and critical chance etcetera. Eg: Agility increases a person speed, as well as their critical chance (This will be explained further in the story but isn't a spoiler) I won't go too in depth into how the basic parameters affect these stats as i am unsure myself, but keep in mind that a person's basic status and final status could be different, i will update this post as well as clarify it once more once i can provide more information about this.
Lastly, a person's final status is determined by their basic status as well as their Class correction values. I don't know the exact values, but when Youya refers to a class having increased Attack parameters, their Attack parameters will be increased by an amount. Decreasing Class correction values work similarly, where a parameter is decreased. Eg: Defense. However, it isn't clear whether this decrease in values affect their basic stat parameters. (Strength/Agility)
One final note, when characters are calling each other by their names, i will be following the japanese standard. For example, Luna shows an uncomfortable amount of familiarity to Youya as she calls him by his name without any honorifics. Only exception to this will be the merchant's introduction as it didn't make much sense to me. He referred to Youya initially as Youyhusband, implying that he thought Luna was his wife. This wouldn't make sense as he was shocked afterwards when Luna cause a misunderstanding. So keep this in mind when characters are calling each other. As more characters get introduced into the story, it becomes much easier to distinguish the characters relationship with each other.
Again, thank you for reading this far and i hope you continue to support this series!
