Day 37 – Nighttime, The White Weirdo Inn.
I finally get to sleep on a bed. As for Armored Pres, I rented another room and shoved her in there. She was somewhat upset, but private time is necessary. Though it seems she isn’t going to sleep?
I don’t know how many days passed since I last slept here. For some reason, no one would answer me no matter whom I ask? Is this some kind of confidential information? I don’t know what day it is today, but come to think of it, I don’t even know the calendar of this world.
Or rather, every time I ask about the date they just ignore it and barrage me with questions, but when I answer them, they get angry, give me a flat gaze, and start preparing for a sermon.
Even though I worked so hard to get back to the surface? Even though I brought souvenirs?
I guess it was a problem that I profited from the distribution of the said souvenirs? Or maybe it had to be something edible?
And as always, just why am I getting scolded for doing nothing bad?
Although I subjugated a dungeon in a different world, my Affection Rating was nowhere to be found. Not even an item boosting it. Falling down there was a complete waste.
However, thanks to falling down there, I got 21 flat gazes. So it’s not like I didn’t gain anything at all.
Will I get more if I keep dropping down into dungeons? Though I suspect my Affection Rating will drop as well every time I fall.
In the first place, blame the guy who dug a pitfall in such a place, not me! Who could’ve predicted such a trap?!
And yet, they are angry at me. I mean, it was inside a wall? How was I supposed to notice that?
Everyone didn’t notice it as well? So why blame me?!
In the first place, if only anyone told me of the dangers of pitfalls I would’ve made adequate preparations.
Yet they kept going 『You will fall off a cliff, you will fall off a cliff』completely setting me up with a psychological trap. I’m actually the victim here.
I should gift the perpetrators a new Meteor (Fried Boulder To The Cranium). Absolutely.
Haaah, I’m pretty tired? Maybe I lack sleep? I had nothing but naps for several days, but it was pretty fun and I made many great finds. Dungeons might be pretty good after all. Especially for me, since I can’t equip normal gear, dungeon items might be just what I need.
Though I donated most of the gear to the avatar of avarice known as Armored Pres-san, I still got a lot of useful items.
By which I of course don’t mean 『Collar of Submission』 at all. Were I to use something like that I would have to bid an eternal farewell to my Affection Rating. That should be erased both from my memory and history. Re:Remember!
There are many items that don’t seem like they will ever get to be used, but there probably will be some opportunity for them to shine? Most likely right around the time I completely forget about them. Even if such a chance will never come, it’s not a big deal since I will already forget about them, and there is no reason for me to remember them.
Let’s take it easy for a while. I have plenty of money, I got rice, and I have soy sauce.
And I have mountains of skills that require testing, experimenting, and practice.
Especially 『Teleportation』. If I could use it, if I had this skill mastered, I wouldn’t have gone through the sort of trouble I had this time.
However, 『Teleportation』is the successor of 『Movement』-san. A good chance that the skill is pretty hard to handle.
Just how much did I trip, fall, or crashed into something with 『Movement』alone.
It’s very different from 『Shukuchi』or 『Acceleration』possessed by my classmates.
Which makes sense since their starting abilities are cheats, and mine are trash.
Just like Weapon Skills, Shukuchi cannot fail upon activation. One will have to practice to master them, but there is no need to practice to Use them. After all, they will always activate and work correctly once used, they can’t misfire or otherwise fail.
However, there is also no room for canceling or altering the course. Once activated, you just plunge forward.
Movement and Walking were nothing more than movement by walking. I had full control over it. If I don’t do anything then I won’t move an inch. Even with『Movement』, failing to control it I tripped, tumbled, and went 『WHOOOOOA』, a lot. I need practice. It’s probably going to be quite That again, so I should do it somewhere no one would see me.
The skill doesn’t have automatic control, it’s full manual.
I’m also curious about『Dōjutsu』. As far as I remember it had something to do with illusions? And there also was something about hypnosis?
Hypnotism sounds a bit dodgy. And it also feels like a close relative of other nasty skills like Charm and Puppetry.
And that’s with Taming already being an issue. If I complete this series then I surely will be besieged with legions of summoned police officers.
It’s better if I don’t master it. I might even get some kind of dangerous skill if I carelessly level it up.
I understand 『Gravity』and『Holding』but I still need to practice, they are not that easy to use. Until now I had to rely on a feeling, but now I can clearly see magic power. I guess it is thanks to the Magic Eye from『Rajingan – The mind’s all-seeing eye. God Eye, Future Sight, Magic Eye, Wisdom Eye, Imitation, Dōjutsu, ?」』that I can now have a clear vision of it. So practice should become easier.
『Apex Thinking』is a unified version of Thinking skills as well as undoubtedly their upgraded version. I wouldn’t say that I feel like I got smarter, it feels more like my brain became more useful, something akin to a personal computer? I can run calculations on a kind of automatic basis? And it also seems like I can run several parallel thought processes, but what do I do if they freeze?
The puzzling one is『Empty Mind』. Order-wise it should be an upgraded version of Concentration? But shouldn’t Concentration go into Apex Thinking? Is it somehow different?
Or maybe it’s the result of all that thoughtless slander from the girls?
And then there is 「Rajingan」, the all-seeing eye. Seeing is all good and fancy, but I can’t use it at all. This thing should come with a manual. A very thick one.
This is an overspec Cheat. So other abilities can’t keep up spec-wise.
There is a lot to do.
I have no time to spare.
I once again have to start from a basic model.

Oooh YES! My level went up. I’m Lv 18 now.
So I got a total of 6 levels in the dungeon. Only 6 levels for a complete clear of a dungeon. Even so, from Lv 12 to Lv 18. SpE and InT that grow especially well are almost 1.5 times. Aren’t those about the same numbers my Cheat classmates had at level 30-35? Well, they are over level 80 by now though.
『Rajingan』already leveled up. Probably because of the horror that a certain someone calls Training. I can’t see her movements either with God Eye or Rajingan.
『Mana Wrapping Max』to『Magic Wrapping Lv 1』it seems that level 10 is the max one, after that, they can only evolve into an upgraded version, which also greatly changed user-friendliness. So this makes it another skill to which I have to adapt. Each time a skill gets stronger it also gets more complicated.
『Adamantine Fists Lv１』must be coming from『Garb of Herculean Strength – ViT Enhancement (Great) PoW 50% Up, Adamantine Fists』. After all, I never got into fistfights with monsters? And I have no intentions of ever doing so for the remainder of my life. Well, my ViT is dangerously low, so I appreciate the bonus to it, but in the end, I can’t really afford to get hit anyway. Even if I can survive the attack, I’m done the moment I stop moving.
Plenty of other skills also leveled up, but at the present, I’m hardly utilizing them. It probably will remain this way for a while. Take even『Improved Detect Presence』, if I could properly use it I could’ve arrived to their rescue much earlier.
I once again have to start from a basic model. I must patch together various skills I have, mixing them, forcibly combining them into a semblance of a technique. After all, I don’t have Cheat Skills that would automatically work when activated.
Aaah, which means, another Abuse Fiesta from Armored Pres-san is awaiting me tomorrow! All participants are sure to receive beatings completely free of charge?! That’s not taking it easy at all! I’m going to get beaten?! Certainly?
