Chapter 6: My Very First Skill
Yuto: “Okay then, I wonder how the quest looks now?”
Yuto brings out the Skill board.
Then he saw…
Level: 5 → 7
Skill Point: 6 → 8
Physical Strength Lv 0 NEW
Swordsmanship Lv 0 NEW
He leveled up twice, and on top of that, the skill section had additions made.
Yuto: “SKILLS ARE *HERE------------!!!”
Even though he’s still inside the dungeon, Yuto could not hold back his excitement and let out a shout.
You can’t blame him.
Up until now, Yuto has never once obtained or achieved a skill even through grueling and blood-stained efforts.
It took a while for Yuto to calm down and regain his composure, and then he was able to start analyzing what was written before him.
Yuto: “This quest… I wonder if there are different rewards for different types of quests?”
One type is receiving experience and skill points on completion of the quest.
Another is receiving experience and skill points, but you also receive a skill on top of it.
Yuto: “The rewards you get from clearing the quests also seems to depend on the difficulty level of the quest…”
This time around, he had to take down a lot of monsters, and it took a lot of time to clear the quest.
Maybe because of that, he got more experience and skill points more than the Daily Quest.
On top of that, he received 2 new skills.
Yuto: “Okay, now I understand that meaning of these skill points.”
Next to the Skills he received, there are upgrade icons next to them.
If he presses here, the level of the skills will increase.
Of course, he can’t just upgrade any of it for free.
The upgrading of Skills requires Skill Points.
Yuto: “Alright! Let’s start distributing these points!”
With unfettered excitement, Yuto begins to spend his Skill Points.
Skill Points: 8 → 2
Physical Strength Lv 0 → Lv 2
Swordsmanship Lv 0 → Lv 2
The amount of Skill Points required to level up Skills are 1 point for Level 1 and 2 points for Level 2.
In this way, Yuto suspects that the amount of Skill Points required to upgrade a Skill is reflected in its current level.
Yuto: “I hoped that I could raise the level with 1 point at a time, but I guess that would be too good to be true.”
The Skill Level for any technique depends on your proficiency with that Skill.
There are generalized strengths of each Skill Level that mirror the Adventurer’s Rank.
Level 1 = E
Level 2 = D
Level 3 = C
Level 5 = B
Level 6 = A
Level 7 = S
Of course, just because you have a higher level skill does not automatically qualify you to be promoted as an Adventurer. This Skill strength is just one factor among many to determine your Adventurer rank.
So this round, Yuto upgraded his Physical Strength and Swordsmanship to Level 2, and this would be equivalent to a D-Rank Adventurer’s skill.
Yuto: “Is this okay?”
This was so easy that Yuto started doubting if any of this is real.
But up until now for 10 years, Yuto has been diligently building up his fundamentals.
Without solidly building his foundation for so long, it would have been impossible for Yuto to continuously slay 500 Goblins in 1 day without even receiving a scratch.
Because he never gave up, because he continued to walk down this path with resolve, he is who he is today.
Yuto: “Great! Then, let’s start heading home. --- OH! Before that…”
2 new Goblins appeared from the hallway.
Seeing those two Goblins, Yuto could not suppress his smile.
It’s an opportunity.
He can confirm if his Skill Level actually improved with these Goblins.
Yuto places his hand on the handle of his sword.
With that sensation in his hands, Yuto opens his eyes wide.
Yuto: (Th-this feels completely different… This is amazing! It’s as if the sword is being sucked into my hands!)
As if the sword was made for Yuto, the grip of the sword felt familiar and comfortable as he held it.
He released the safety from the sheath with his thumb, and drew out the sword.
The sword is made of steel, and it is about 2 kg (4.4 lbs).
But it felt lighter as if it was made of wood.
----This must be due to his Level 2 Physical Strength.
The Goblins try to intimidate Yuto, but they only meet one sword swing slicing them horizontally.
Yuto’s body feels lighter than he could imagine.
With strength he never knew he had, the sword cut down both Goblins in half.
He resumed his sword stance, removed the blood from the sword, and put it back in its sheath.
He turns around only to see…
Yuto: “Oh that’s…”
He knows that he was responsible for the bloody scene behind him, but he still cringed at the sight.
The sword Yuto is holding is dwarven-made, but it was also the cheapest sword available.
After cutting down 500 Goblins, even the blade which he carefully sharpened was dulled.
Even so, the Goblins were cut in half as though he used a higher-grade blade.
And he cut two down with just a single swing.
Yuto: “(gulp) Skills...are amazing…”
Yuto experienced for the first time the efficacy of Skills.
Climbing back to the surface, the sun was long gone.
The temple’s had magical torches lit up all around.
Yuto heads from the dungeon entrance to the Guild’s sell counter.
Yuto: “Excuse me. I’d like to sell off my drop items.”
“Yes, in that case, please submit your guild card, and place the items over here.”
The girl at the counter took out and placed a large bowl for determining item costs and gave it to Yuto.
Yuto took the guild tag around his neck and placed the Goblin magic stones inside the bowl.
500 Goblins worth of Magic Stones was a lot, but he was able to keep it all inside the bowl without spilling.
“Th---thank you… Please excuse us while we assess your items.”
The girl at the counter could not hide her confusion and disbelief, but managed to barely keep her business smile intact. She took the magic stones inside the bowl and disappeared to a backroom.
-----after a certain period of time passed.
“Thank you for waiting. This is the amount that was determined from the items submitted.”
The girl at the counter was struggling to hold and carry a large cloth sack with both hands.
The wait was about a good 10 minutes.
Typically, especially for Yuto, the amount of time it would take to assess his drop items would be about 1 to 2 minutes. That’s how much more he hunted this time.
Yuto: (Yeah, I can’t blame her. It’s the first time I hunted 500 Goblins in one day…)
No matter if they are the weakest of the monsters, no one goes around wasting their time hunting hundreds of them at a time.
Even in the Labyrinth City of Kronos, very few Adventurers have defeated that many monsters in a single day.
“At this time, we have confirmed that all the magic stones originated from Goblins. For one magic stone, the current market value is 10 gards. There were a total of 502 crystals which comes to 5020 gards that will be paid out to you.”
Yuto was overflowing with joy.
It was the most he ever made as an Adventurer.
This is at least 5 times the greatest amount he has ever received in the past.
In Kronos, a meal costs around 100 gards.
Yuto had discovered cheaper restaurants and has suppressed his meal cost to 50 gards.
Yuto: (Just calculating it as meals is 100 days worth! Amazing!!)
With this, he would not have to worry about starving for a while.
Yuto lets out a huge sigh of relief.
Yuto takes his reward and guild tag back and with unsuppressed joy written all over his face, leaves the temple.
When Yuto returned to his room, he resists the temptation to dive face first into his bed.
Yes, his body was more than tired.
Yes, he can’t imagine how good it would feel to sleep right now.
But he has not completed his Daily Quests for the day.
Push-ups x 100 (0/100)
Sit-ups x 100 (0/100)
Back Lifts x 120 (0/120)
Squats x 100 (0/100)
Yuto finished the running portion after he left the house and when he came back.
You do not have to complete all the quests at once, and it will calculate and retain the ones you accomplished thus far.
He was glad that he could complete these at his own leisure.
Putting all of that aside, Yuto pushed himself to complete all the Daily Quest items.
Once he was finished, this time, he tumbled into his bed and passed out subsequently.
Level: 7 → 8
Skill Point: 2 → 3

CHONKY Notes LiT (Lost in Translation)
*Here (kita--!) (来た) (キター) -- I saw this trend emerge during the emergence of internet forums in Japanese forums. The general word is “IT’S HERE!” (kita-----!) but it refers to an event that pushes the narrative or situation definitively forward. For instance, if you watch Japanese dramas like Densha-Otoko (電車男), you’ll see this used a lot as the MC encounters progress in his love life that he never expected. It was first associated with Otaku-culture, but since then, has become more mainstream.
