Level 1 Guy: Chapter 135 – Total MP consumption Magic
Nihonium Dungeon’s 5th floor that has Dungeon Snows falling.
I was currently hunting down the Red Skeletons that gets powered up from the magic of the snow.
I held my revolver onto the head of the Red Skeleton as soon as it spawned from the ground.
It did not try and chase me, but instead ran to the side of me to try and attack me from behind.
The Skeleton which had confidence with it’s speed was moving with disturbing tactics, which was unusual for a monster to do so.
Though it was pretty quick, I was faster than it.
The revolver resembled that of a compass as it turned a full 90 degree and I pulled the trigger.
It was just a normal bullet, and the fired bullet went straight and landed at the Red Skeleton.
The red bones was fast, but that’s all there is to it, as a normal bullet was enough to defeat it, dropping a MP Seed as it vanished.
Following that pattern, I continued to roam around the dungeon.
Though I have the Repetition magic, but I’m trying not to use it on dungeons that require less movements as much as possible.
It isn’t all about the status, exercising one’s body is also just as important, thus with that in mind I continued farming.
After going round once, I collected the required MP seeds and thus went straight out of the dungeon.
Outside the dungeon, I went to the only K-I-A board that was placed near the entrance of the dungeon.
Operating it, I confirmed my status.
My MP had nicely reached to SS, and looking at the status, in my mind I was like ‘That’s cool, that’s cool.’ as I nodded in approval of the multiple SS statuses.
The city of Shikuro, a familiar Magic Tools store.
As I entered the store, the store owner, Isaac, appeared with a business-like smile while rubbing his palms together.
[Welcome Satou-sama. What is it that you would like to find as for today?] (Isaac)
[I wish to pick a Magic Fruit today.] (Ryouta)
[Once again I see. Magic Fruits, when eaten would give various side effects…..] (Isaac)
[I know, you don’t have to worry about that.] (Ryouta)
I know that he was helping me based on his kindness, but that’s won’t be an issue.
When eaten once, you [Would not be able to Level up anymore], and if eaten a second time, the demerit would be [Your current Level would drop by 1].
That was the reason why adventurers who wanted to eat it once would max their level first before taking a bite, that was the logic.
As the Magic that you learn would be random, there would be a huge risk in taking more than 1 of them as the demerit would be not worth it.
Hence why the shop owner, Isaac warned me again…..Though my level was 1 to begin with.
I can’t even level up to begin with, let alone drop the level anymore then it already is.
I believe that I was the only one in this world that wouldn’t mind eating all them Magic Fruits.
[If Satou-san have put it in such a way then…….though the Magic Fruits have been decreasing these days, so the value has now spiked up to 5 Million Piros….] (Isaac)
[Can’t be helped if supplies are low.] (Ryouta)
That’s economy for you.
Regardless of everyday necessities, the price was reflected based on it being a luxury goods and also in low supply. So there’s no helping when the price increased.
If it was still a million piros, I would’ve bought it without hesitation.
But if it was 5 Million, you may as well buy a good luxurious car, and still have enough for my daily allowances.
Moreover……even if it’s 50 Million I’ll still have to somehow forged that money out in order to buy it.
As it seemed to be staring at me while blinking since a while ago.
There was the woman in kimono I saw the other day at the store’s counter.
The doll-sized translucent woman had a mirror and a jewel—–The jewel that Cerberus dug up and was brought to Nihonium, was bowing to me several times.
If she’s there that means somethings in here——
[Please show me the Magic Fruit that you have.] (Ryouta)
[Certainly, please wait for a moment.] (Isaac)
Isaac at once withdrew into the shop, and took out 3 Magic Fruits and arranged them neatly on the counter.
[These are the remaining Magic Fruits that we have in the store.] (Isaac)
Which do you prefer? As Isaac asked.
Meanwhile, the woman moved.
The woman only visible to me whilst holding a mirror and a slender ball stopped in front of the Magic Fruit in the middle.
With a smile on my face, I gestured the middle one with a [This please.].
[I’ll have this one.] (Ryouta)
[Thank you very much for your continued patronage.] (Isaac)
It was the same back when I learned Repetition, the woman that showed me the Magic Fruit must have some astounding effects. Thus I paid him with a lump sum amount of cash.
As I arrived back to the mansion, I went down the basement with Emily and Cerberus.
[What are you doing Master.] (Cerberus)
[Pretreating a Magic Fruit.] (Ryouta)
[Is there anything I can do for you?] (Cerberus)
[You can just sit there and watch.] (Ryouta)
As I said, I placed the Magic Fruit at the furthest end, and went to where Emily and Cerberus was.
We waited for the Magic Fruit to hatch into a rogue monster.
[It’s really great to have a basement desu, we have no worries that anyone would see us here desu.] (Emily)
[Since doing it outside we have to be careful, and when it hatched and I don’t defeated it ASAP, it’ll run god knows where, which would be a hassle.] (Ryouta)
[If it’s here then everything’s solved nanodesu.] (Emily)
Emily spoked with a smile on her face.
After dealing with rogue monsters with a long period of time, I knew the struggles and precaution that has to be taken.
As I need to keep getting a drop from rogue monsters a secret to others besides my friends.
If hatching the rogue monsters outside, I had to take a distance, and if I don’t defeat it quickly it might find another target and attack them instead.
Though, this was all settled after having this basement.
Below a private estate, the Magic Fruit hatched into a rogue monster.
It was a metallic monster that looked exactly like me.
‘He’ came straight towards me.
A monster at the edge with no one but me to attack, thus it rushed towards me.
[Wawa, it looked exactly like Master. Wh, what should I do master.] (Cerberus)
[It’s alright—–Repetition.] (Ryouta) (TLN: EZGG)
I used magic at the rogue monster and defeat it in a blow.
Unlike in a dungeon, there might be risk in damaging the mansion if a fierce battle were to be had on this basement.
When hatching rogue monsters here, it’s best to defeat it quickly with repetition.
The rogue monster collapsed, and a Magic Fruit dropped.
The first Magic Fruit had a ☆ attached to it, now the newly dropped Magic Fruit had 2 ☆ attached to it.
I picked it up and ate it the same way as before.
[Have you learned it desu?] (Emily)
[Yeah, one of it is Heal. A recovery magic it seems.] (Ryouta)
[Yoda-san already has Recovery Bullets though nodesu.] (Emily)
[Yeah, as MP could be restored to an unlimited number of times.] (Ryouta)
I took out my revolver and shot myself continuously as if being injected by the Infinite Recovery Bullet.
The MP used for Repetition has been healed.
On to the next Magic, it consumes a large amount of MP.
[Emily, I’m sorry but could you bring 3 portable K-I-A boards now?] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu—–] (Emily)
[I’ll go and retrieve it!] (Cerberus)
Cerberus jumped out of the basement while wagging his tail. As per what I asked, he immediately fetched back with the portable K-I-A boards.
[Yes, here you go Master.] (Cerberus)
[Good Job.] (Ryouta)
I patted his head, and praised him while scratching his lower part of his chin. Cerberus tilted his head while glancing at me pleasingly.
[Please use one of it for now.] (Ryouta)
[I understand.] (Cerberus)
Cerberus then used the K-I-A board.
[I’ve used it.] (Cerberus)
[Now I’ll use the magic—-<Quick Silver>.] (Ryouta)
The moment I used the magic on Cerberus, I felt a bit dizzy as if being weakened.
[Yoda-san? Are you alright nanodesu?] (Emily)
[I’m fine, my MP was just fully consumed.] (Ryouta)
[Is it such an awesome magic nanodesu?] (Emily)
[If you say it’s amazing I guess it is. Cerberus, try using the portable K-I-A board once more.] (Ryouta)
Immediately, Cerberus redesplayed his status as told. Then.
[Eh? One of it went up.] (Cerberus)
[His luck has risen from F to E desu.] (Emily)
[That is the power of the magic. In exchange for all my MP, the magic would give a person a random ability a raise for an entire day.] (Ryouta)
[A whole day, That’s pretty impressive.] (Cerberus)
[Though it being random seems inconvenient nanodesu, Plus you have to use up all your MP for a random effect, it doesn’t seem to be that useful desu.] (Emily)
[Not really.] (Ryouta)
I shot myself with the revolver.
Using the Infinite Recovery Bullet I healed my MP.
After healing my MP, I used <Quick Silver. Again which drained my entire MP again.
[That’s how one uses it.] (Ryouta)
[I see now nanodesu.] (Emily)
From here onwards, there would be a tedious process.
Recovery my MP with Infinite Recovery Bullet, then use <Quick Silver>, then recover my MP once again.
After repeating that process for about 20 times.
[Since it overlaps it is necessary to use it a number of times….but well, it’s something like that.] (Ryouta) (TLN: Which meant he can only (+1) on a single stats once and it won’t stack? Since he used it 20 times)
[Amazing, that’s really amazing Master.] (Cerberus)
[It is only Yoda-san who can use these sorts of things nanodesu!] (Emily)
Both Cerberus and Emily were deeply impressed.
<Quick Silver> that consumes all MP, and with Infinite Recovery bullets.
It doesn’t really cost me anything, and I get to increase my fellow teammate’s ability by one.
