Day 2 Cave
When I wake up I’m in a cave I don’t know? Yea, this is not too much of a fuss.
Apparently it’s hard to even follow the standard routine in another world, It seems that I have to start my morning by staring at the ceiling of a cave.
There weren’t any problems in the middle of the night. The tent and lantern both have monster avoidance and hikikomori to top it off where during the time that I’m holed up, I will be protected. But I wonder what happens when I’m out? Probably need a door, just in case, probably need a mailbox.
I light the bonfire that’s disappeared in the middle of the night with fire magic, it can’t be lit up without holding it in my hand so a fireball is probably impossible. Holding it in my hand and throwing it seems hot. I don’t want to get hot, after seeing that old man…
From the item bag, I take out a knife, frying pan, cutting board, dried meat, and mushrooms. Let’s also bring out salt, a plate, and a cup. Of course, it’s Villager A-san goods. Did this person actually stay in the village?
Place a frying pan on a bonfire and heat until smoke appears. Put shredded minced meat and thick slices of mushrooms onto the pan and then fry. Add a small amount of water when a brown color appears and cover with a lid. Shake the pan carefully to prevent burning, steam until the water is gone, and salt lightly to enhance the taste. Mmm, it smells good, so far the only ingredients are dried meat from the item bag and mushrooms from the mushroom forest. And the only seasoning is Mr. A’s salt, the stock will run out sooner or later. Meat and fish, and what else you can get in the forest, as far as I saw yesterday, it was a mushroom forest. There may be a bamboo shoot village somewhere. …Don’t start a war.
To fetch water, I went outside, since I was here, I used clairvoyance to examine the surrounding area. It seems that there is no bamboo rattan. The war was evaded, but obtaining the bamboo shoot seems impossible.
I think about what to do from now on while eating. Securing food and housing will be the top priority, and the rest is safety and measures against demons.
First of all, this cave is probably fine as a living space. I have a tent so it may be okay to move around, but it is safer to use a cave. A cave in which I can enclose myself within is also wonderful.
If food in this area runs out, I’ll consider moving out, food and safety is my first priority. Hmm? Normally, the adventure begins, but I’m already enclosing myself from the outside world? If so, will I soon stop working? As expected, different world skills are scary!
In this way, I entered the forest and started collecting mushrooms, and proceeded while searching with Appraisal. I passed through downstream yesterday, so today I will try to go upstream.
Mushrooms are common and sometimes I find medicinal plants. I try not to approach anything that has any sign of being dangerous. I proceed through the forest while picking up firewood, wood, and vines.
However, normally these kinds of things have standard patterns, at first, you should live in a castle or something, but it’s really a survival countryside life! Already in a forest without ever being kicked out of the castle! Moreover, there are 0 people other than me, the whole story is being told by me! Is this the summoning of a different world? What is the difference between this story and the Robinsons family transfer job?
(1. TN Note: The Swiss Family Robinson)
It’s about time to go back to the cave, time-wise, it should be around lunchtime? I don’t know the time because I have neither a clock nor a cell phone. There’s no need to ask why I don’t have a cell phone, don’t ask! Absolutely don’t ask!
I can get through the forest soon where the cave is just around the corner. But I can’t move. I feel like something is nearby? Is it a monster? Is it an animal? … Maybe a classmate? There is no doubt that it’s not a friend. Yeah, I can’t make that mistake.
Your annoying ~ go somewhere. I watched while hiding so that it couldn’t see me, listened carefully to the noise but was careful not to make noise, and hid my presence while looking for a presence … I found it! “Appraisal”!

It’s somewhat of a short humanoid, an ugly face that doesn’t resemble a human or any other animals and a stubby grayish-brown body. Goblin-san, the weakest of the weakest, the small fish of the small fish, it’s ridiculous if you can’t beat it. Depending on the story, even a child can beat it …Is how it should be but it’s somewhat strong? And there are two of them.
While you’re weak, defeat Goblins and raise your Lv, which is the basics. At first, it’s a goblin or slime, is how it should be but their status is higher than expected, their strength is stronger than mine…can I win? No, I will be stuck if I can not beat the goblin. I will be fighting them one day as long as I enter the forest.
Right now, I have the opportunity to launch a surprise attack. If I were to be suddenly attacked, I would be surprised and would be unable to do anything. The party which controls the element of surprise is overwhelmingly advantageous, you can aim to destroy each individual one by one, you can also choose an advantageous location, giving the advantage of terrain, you can even choose the timing, it is an absolute opportunity. If you can win, that is.
The problem is HP and ViT, and PoW, if you think only by the numbers, based on me whose stats are all 10, HP is 4 times, ViT is about 2.5 times? That means I have to attack 10 times more than the goblin. If I consider PoW’s 2x, it’s 20 times, so I can’t win unless I land more than 20 hits per one hit.
On the other hand, my HP is 10, Goblin’s PoW is around 20, which means I will be out with a single blow. Which means I have to land 10 hits without getting hit once. It is a number that cannot be achieved by surprise attacks alone.
SpE and DeX are about the same, so I can’t overwhelm them with speed either. The only advantages I have are InT and LuK, InT which is 10 times more and LuK which is incomprehensibly more. I might be able to win with InT if it was intelligence, but it’s meaningless if it’s magic.
For what it’s worth, there is also that wooden stick with an attack power of “?” The opponent also has a club, but it’s the same because I’m done in one hit anyway. On the contrary, it can be said that it is advantageous if their speed is slowed by that heavy club.
Moreover, if you aim at the back of the head or the neck from behind, it may cause more damage than other places. If I get a double bonus, it’s 5 hits, the value of a surprise attack is probably high.
As long as I don’t know how reliable the numbers projected on the status are, an experiment is required, the experiment known as real-life combat.
If you try it, you will understand, but if you do not try you cannot understand, you can do it if it’s possible, but when it’s not, it’s dangerous. Securing an escape route should be my first course of action.
SpE remains the same, but the difference in height is surprisingly large, especially the difference in leg length is even longer, the leg length is! Yeah, it’s an important place, so I tried saying it twice! This part is probably going to be on the exam.
If I want to escape, it’s the cave. If I go back to my home, I might have the hikikomori effect, and the entrance is narrow, so I can bring it in 1: 1. Even if I run inside, I hold the home ground advantage.
If I loop around the edge of the forest for the attack and fail, I can escape immediately. Hiding my presence to not make any noise while moving slowly, from this angle, I can only aim for Goblin A. If Goblin A can be defeated with haste before Goblin B arrives, it may be possible to turn a 2: 1 situation into 1: 1 consecutive battles.
Holding my breath, I approach quietly until I get in range to launch an attack. Goblin A is looking backward and Goblin B moved even further away. When am I doing it? Now! Fighting school, I’m scared!?
