“Right. I’d be surprised if they told us it was Earth after all the systems and those big caterpillars.” (Ai)
“You seem to be taking it pretty easy. You might not make it back.” (Tatsuro)
“I know that, but we’re already here, so there’s nothing we can do. Of course, I’ll miss my mom and dad, but I’m not alone!” (Ai)
Then Ai hugged Tatsuro’s arm. He smiled back and said, “You’re right.”
If they had been sent to a place like this alone, they would not have been able to bear it.
“But that doesn’t mean we can’t go home. It seems there’s magic in the air, so we might be able to go home with like a snap.” (Tatsuro)
“Right, right! And even if I can’t go home, I can live with it as long as Tatsuro is by my side! So don’t leave me! That’s why.” (Ai)
“That’s my line.” (Tatsuro)
Then they looked at each other and kissed. It was just a moment of touching, but even so, they felt that their feelings were mutual.
“Come to think of it, if there’s a way to get home by magic, why don’t we find it with ‘help’?” (Ai)
“You’re right. ‘Help’ doesn’t even know what the earth is, let alone Japan (Lol). If It did know, I’d call Help-sama from now on.” (Tatsuro)
“Oh. Do you want to check it out?” (Ai)
“Yeah, leave it to me” (Tatsuro)
He booted up the system, which he was already familiar with, and went to ‘help’.
“Uh, tell me how to get back to Earth. …… I don’t even know what Earth is. See?” (Tatsuro)
“No, no. You’re asking the wrong questions, Tatsuro. You don’t know the name of other planet than Earth. Try approaching it from a more casual point.” (Ai)
“Fuwa? Hmmm… …… So, is there magic that can take us to another world? Is there……?” (Tatsuro)
He looked at Ai, who clapped her hands in delight, “Well, wait,” he said, and moved on to the next question.
“What kind of magic is it? …… is theoretically possible with transference magic that is classified as a space-time attribute.” (Tatsuro)
“Space-time is that thing you said you needed 1000 skill points for.” (Ai)
“What do you mean by “theoretically? …… First of all, the basic premise of transfer magic is that you must be able to imagine a specific place and have been there before in order to activate it, which leads to the contradiction that you need to go to another world in order to go to another world, so I can only say that it is theoretically possible.
In addition, due to the difficulty of obtaining it, no one has ever obtained and used “space-time magic” from the system, so the help has not been able to observe any actual examples.” (Tatsuro)
“Huh? That means we can go home as long as we get it, right?” (Ai)
“Yay!” The two of them high-fived and hugged each other as they spun in circles in delight.
With Tatsuro’s skills, there was no need to raise his level, he could just get them from any creature in the area, so the amount of points was literally a matter of time.
“Hmmm… But still, (1000). It’s a little tough. Isn’t there some kind of shortcut or efficient backdoor trick?” (Tatsuro)
“I’ll ask ‘Help-sama’.” (Ai)
“He really did become Help-sama” (Tatsuro)
“Yes, Help-sama is wonderful. I’m sure he’ll be able to show us some tricks or something.” (Ai)
“I see” (Tatsuro)
Even if it was seen with a face like “No way”, Tatsuro used Help-sama again.
“Please tell me! What’s the most efficient way to get the space-time attribute…..hmmm?” (Tatsuro)
“What’s wrong? What did Help-sama say?” (Ai)
“Eh? Are…….Waaa?!” (Tatsuro)
“Hey, what’s going on?” (Ai)
“We have an emergency! There are more requirements than just skill points to acquire the space-time attribute.” (Tatsuro)
“What are the requirements?” (Ai)
“In order to acquire the spacetime attribute, you need to unlock all other magic attributes to the maximum level of 10 and then acquire the gravity attribute.” (Tatsuro)
“That’s not a shortcut, that’s a long way!” (Ai)
“Oh. Oh, and I also found out another annoying thing.” (Tatsuro)
“What is it?” (Ai)
“Oh, actually…” (Tatsuro)
Tatsuro explained about the skill points and skills that he found using ‘Help’.
According to ‘help’, the skill points needed to acquire a skill represent the difficulty level of the person to learn it.
The skill points (1) to (3) can be acquired by anyone in good health with training.
(4) can be acquired by anyone in good health through rigorous training.
(5) A talented person can acquire through rigorous training.
(6) Can be attained by those who have the benefit of race and talent through rigorous training.
(7) Has tribal benefits and can be acquired by those with talent, especially with strict training.
(8) and above, it is practically impossible to acquire them on your own.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen this.
In this case, the map function was (9), which meant that it was impossible for him to acquire it on his own.
And here’s the problem: if you take skills such as “sword fighting” or “fire magic”, which determine your style of life, it will be harder and harder for you to take other skills because you will be devoting more resources to them.
Specifically, if a person has not yet acquired any skills, he or she can acquire either 《Swordsmanship Lv.1》 or 《Spearmanship Lv.1》 by using skill points (1).
However, if he or she has acquired 《 Swordsmanship Lv.1 》 , and wants to acquire another martial arts skill, such as 《 Spearmanship Lv.1″, he or she will need to use (2), and if he or she has acquired 《 Spearmanship Lv.1 》 with (2), and now wants to acquire a third 《 Stickman Lv.1 》 , he or she will need to use (3), and so on. The points needed to acquire the skill will increase by the number of skills you have obtained.
If a player has obtained a martial arts skill and wants to obtain a magic skill, the multiplier will be the number of skills + 2 (and vice versa), making it very difficult to master both martial arts and magic.
Based on what has been said so far, in order to get the space-time attribute that Tatsuro and Ai need, they need to get the other 12 skills plus gravity.
The first one, other than light, dark, and gravity, is
Lv.(n) = Required Skill Points = (n)
But for the second one
Lv.(n) = Required Skill Points = (n) x 2
The third one is
Lv.(n) = Required Skill Points = (n) x 3
And by the time he get to the twelfth one, he will have
Lv.(n) = Required Skill Points = (n) x 12
and the final skill points required will be huge as the multiplier increases.
Also, the light and dark attributes are
Lv.(n) = Required Skill Points = (n + 10)
So if he doesn’t get it first and turn it in at the end
Lv.(n) = Required Skill Points = (n + 10) x 12
So, he had to be careful
“That’s what it means.” (Tatsuro)
“Well, I mean, the more new attribute magic you get, the more your SP goes up and the harder it is to get.” (Ai)
“SP? Yeah, skill points. Well, that’s the gist of it.” (Tatsuro)
“So how many SP do you need to get the space-time attribute in total?” (Ai)
“Uh, help me please” (Tatsuro)
“You’ve already lost me…..” (Ai)
As Ai sighed at how easily he changed his attitude towards the help, Tatsuro, who had quickly finished his research, looked up again.
“Oh, …… says it’s 8,490 if I take light and dark first.” (Tatsuro)
“That’s expensive.” (Ai)
“By the way, if you earn SP just by leveling up, you’ll have to reach level 2830.” (Tatsuro)
“No wonder no one can use it.” (Ai)
“Exactly. If they don’t have the skills like me, it’ll be impossible. Hmmm… If I collect 100 SP every day, it’ll take me 85 days, and if I collect 50 SP, it’ll take me 170 days.” (Tatsuro)
“You’ve figured out how to get home one way or another, so take it easy and make sure you do. It’s not that I don’t want to go home early, but I don’t want to ruin your body by overworking yourself!” (Ai)
Just as the conversation was about to wrap up there, Ai suddenly thought of something and opened her mouth, clapping her hands.
“Ah──That’s right! I could raise my level up quickly and you use the “Level Eater” to suck it up and recover SP over and over again. If we can do that, we’ll be home soon, right?” (Ai)
It is true that if we could do that, we could eliminate all the troublesome procedures.
But when Ai proposed this idea with a twinkle in her eye, Tatsuro shook his head reluctantly.
“It’s not that I haven’t thought about it, either. But I’m not going to do it.” (Tatsuro)
“Eh? Why not? It seems like a quick and easy way.” (Ai)
“Think about it. All this talk of “systems” and “skills,” what the hell are they?” (Tatsuro)
“I don’t know” (Ai)
“Yes, neither do I. This “level eater” may have no effect on monsters, but it may cause fatal harm to people. And even if people are fine, what about otherworlders like us? There may be something that only harms otherworlders, or there may be restrictions against using it on people you love. You can’t be sure that even Help will tell you the truth about everything, so why should I use such a suspicious thing on the person I love the most?” (Tatsuro)
“Ah… You’re right. If you say it like that, I can’t do it either. It’s because …… I’m the one Tatsuro cares the most.” (Ai)
When Tatsuro said to her face that she was the most important person in his life, Ai’s face turned bright red and she turned her head away in embarrassment.
And Tatsuro realized what he had said and turned his head to the side as well, his face turning red.
“Well, I guess that’s it. So let’s just take it easy!” (Tatsuro)
The two of them put in a lot of effort to hide their embarrassment, and their goal was set for now.
