11-010 First job (2)

Are you done?
Oh, my God! You're here?

 It's a good thing it's Haruka, but if it were an enemy, we'd be in trouble.
 It's a good thing it's Haruka, but if it were an enemy, it would be bad, right?
 I wonder if I'll be able to detect her presence when I get used to fighting?
 By the way, Toya, who said she wanted to see magic, is in the back of the room waving a wooden sword with all her heart.
 He's also doing some kind of sword dance, but I wonder if that's an effect of his skill. Her sharp movements do not look like an amateur at first glance.

"How was it? Does it work?
"Well, Ignite is a good substitute for flint. I think the Fire Arrow can be used to attack ....... There is the problem of being able to hit a moving enemy, though. I'm not sure about space-time magic at the moment. If you have enough magic power, you can extend the duration and use it to bring back a lot of stuff. What about Haruka?

"Light magic is pretty good. There's healing and stuff. But it can't heal serious injuries yet, so be careful with that. Wind and water are level 1, so they might not be useful in battle. You can make water, though, so they'll come in handy.

So how do you attack?
No. The best it can do now is to make noise to get your attention or to surprise you by spraying water on you. If we don't get her a bow soon, she'll be useless.
"No, I'm grateful enough to be able to heal you. No, I'm grateful enough to be able to heal you, but Haruka has been a great help to me before the battle.

 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think it's a good idea.
 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think it's a good idea. --although as a man, he's a bit pathetic.
 Also, to be honest, I'm most afraid of getting hurt.
 In this world, if you can't work, you'll be homeless.
 The value of Haruka's ability to heal is high enough on its own.

I think the power of magic depends on the amount of magic power used, but isn't that the case with healing?
It's the same. But ......, I have to tell Toya about this. Toya! Stop pretending and come here!
Oh, did you finish your magic test? How did it go?

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I'm going to have to.
 I'm not sure what to make of this.
 I'm sure you've never even tried kendo in your original world.
 If it's because of the [swordsmanship] or [talent for swordsmanship], the influence of the skill seems to be quite high.

At least I can use simple attack magic. Toya looks quite different, doesn't she?
Yeah. I don't know, his body just moves by itself. I've gained a lot of confidence in my movements, if not my attitude. It's a good thing that I have level 3 sword talent and swordsmanship.

 I'm not sure how much level 3 means in this world.
 I don't know what level 3 is in this world, but at least I'm not a beginner.
 I'd like to see you work hard as a wall.

As for me, I'll be specializing in healing for now. I'm going to focus on healing. The power of magic increases with the use of more magic power, but when it comes to healing, the range of wounds that can be healed increases, but the depth of wounds that can be healed does not change, so be careful.
"...... You mean?

 I'm not sure what you mean by that.

In the event that you've got a lot of money, you'll be able to buy a lot of things at the same time.
 However, if he has a deep puncture wound and a large blood vessel is cut, even if he uses a lot of magic, the Light Cure will not heal him. You need to use a higher level of healing, the Cure.

I'm not sure what to make of this. It's a good idea to be cautious and make small cuts rather than aiming for massive damage.
You have to be especially careful with missing parts. There are very few people who can heal them, so it's practically impossible. If you have access to magic, it's worse to lose a finger than to get stabbed in the torso.
"Oh. I'll be careful.

 Is a non-life-threatening finger usually more important than a fatal injury?
 On the other hand, if the situation is such that Haruka can't heal it, then it's worse to get stabbed. .......
 I don't know how calmly I can think when the time comes, but I have to be careful too.

And while I'm at it, let me give you a little common sense about magic.
"Oh, now? Isn't that something you should have done before you started practicing?

 I can use it just fine now, can't I?

Of course, there's a reason why I didn't do it first. Of course, there's a reason why I didn't do it first, which I'll explain later, but I told you that in this world, you can't check your skill level like we can, right?

 Yeah, well, at least there's no way to check it as easily as we can.
 ......? It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

Yes, as Nao found out, people in this world don't know what level you are at so you can use this.

 So what to do is to get a grimoire or learn from a master.
 A grimoire is just a book of standards that says, 'This spell has what effect and how powerful it is.
 In other words, it's not about what level you are and what spells you can use, it's about what level you are if you can use these spells according to the grimoire.

"So, to put it simply, the level of a spell is how difficult it is to use, but the type of spell is not determined?
"That's what I mean. The reason I didn't teach this at the beginning was because I thought it would be more applicable. ...... How did you like it?
That's .......

 For example, if I had been told at the beginning that Ignite is a spell that lights a candle-sized fire at your fingertips, I would have used it exactly as it is.
 If you're trying to avoid stereotypes, you might have been right.

"I don't understand, but it's okay?
"Well, of course. You can't compare them.

 Haruka smiles at me.
 This may be a kind of educational theory, but since we can't compare under the same conditions, it's hard to understand which is better.
 At any rate, since I was able to use various types of Ignite, I guess it's safe to say that there is no problem.

So, what is it? You can create any spell that is not on the list. You mean you can create and use any spell not on that list?

 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think it's a good idea.

I'm not sure what to do, but I'm going to do it.
I'm not sure what to do. My dreams are expanding~. It's a shame that I didn't take up magic.
I'll tell you, it's not that easy to use. The reason why we were able to use the magic on the list and its application is probably because of the evil gods' correction.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for in a spell.
 In our case, Haruka considers that since we are reincarnated with the skill level of 'stable activation', we can use it normally and within the scope of the application of that magic, we can use it without difficulty.

So if you want to learn a new spell, you'll probably need the same kind of training as any other wizard.

 As a test, Haruka also tried to use her best light magic, imagining a magic that was not on the list, but it did not work at all.
 Apparently, it's too optimistic to think that as you level up, you'll be able to add spells to the list and use them quickly.

If Toya wants to improve her sword skills, she'll have to find a good teacher or train hard on her own.
No, you've already got the sword skills, so it's not like you're self-disciplined. What do you think about that?
Yes, my body moves naturally. I don't know if this is a movement in accordance with some kind of school or not, but ...... the skill is amazing!

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're doing.
 In the event that you have any questions regarding where and the best way to get in touch with us, please do not hesitate to contact us. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

I'm sure you'll be fine in the Eastern Forest if you can move like this. --Since we've taken so much time, why don't we go for a quick run?
"Yeah, I don't mind. Fortunately or not, I'm only wearing clothes, my weapon is a wooden sword, and my pack is almost empty!
"Right. If we don't collect as much as we can, we won't be able to stay at the inn.
It's true that you can earn money for lodging, but if you don't save up some, you'll be living for the day. We'll run at a speed that won't cause fatigue and will allow for normal conversation.
Understood. --I want to get home as soon as possible.

 We've been here for more than an hour, I think.
 At least, as long as we haven't bought any food, we won't be able to have lunch unless we go back to the city.
 On the other hand, if we left halfway, we wouldn't be able to stay at the inn, and it would affect our meals the next day.
 This is a very motivating situation.

    The three of us went for a light jog.

 The three of us went for a light jog -- though we were running fast enough for the original world -- and soon we saw a forest ahead on the right side of the road.
 The forest began a few dozen meters away from the road, and its edge could not be seen from here.
 The forest seemed to extend for at least several kilometers.

Is that the forest we're looking for?
I think so.
It's a big forest. How big is it?
Well, we haven't looked that far. If we don't go in too deep, there won't be any dangerous demons, so we'll take it near the road.
Copy that.

 The forest had been cut down along the road, and as we approached, we could see old stumps scattered about.

There's a lot of stumps around here, like they were used for lumber.
"Hmm, maybe, but it's for safety. It's easier for animals and bandits to hide if the forest is right next to the road.
"Oh, I see.

 Yes, it would be safer, considering the risk of attack.
 Besides, the remaining trees in the area were not very thick hardwoods, so they would be useless for firewood, but not for lumber.

Well, then, let's get to work.
Oh, ......, I don't know anything about herbs.
Oh, I'm at .......

 Oh, shit. I should've asked at the Adventurer's Guild.
 I should've asked at the Adventurer's Guild. I left everything to Hulka.

It's okay. I think.

Oh, is Haruka going to give you a class on herbs?
No. No. Even with my common sense, I can only vaguely understand it. More importantly, Nao, look at that grass and think, "I want to know something about it.
"Hmm? Oh, .......

 I was wondering why Haruka was pointing to a single grass and saying such a thing, but I did as she asked and looked at the grass.
 You'll be able to see a semi-transparent tag with the word "medicinal herbs" superimposed on the grass.

What? What is this? I didn't know this function existed.

 It's like a science fiction AR display.
 I wouldn't be surprised if there was, since it displays the status .......

"What? Nothing's happening to me.

 I said as I pointed to the herb. I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.
 Haruka nodded her head as if she understood.

"I knew it. I just noticed that this is probably a help function. I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who has a problem with this.
I half forgot that 20 points wasn't a fluke. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not. I'm not sure if it's ...... or if I'm just being too vague.

 Thanks to the presence of a dependable childhood friend, I may have been a little less critical.
 My skills are my lifeline, so I should have examined them more carefully.
 If you think about it, the other things you don't really understand are [Spotting] and [Spotting].
 I'm not sure what to do with it.
 I'm sure Haruka has the [Spotting] one.

"Hey, Haruka, have you tried using [Spotting]?
"Yes. Of course. It seems to be a skill that allows you to check your opponent's strength ...... or status? It's a skill that allows you to check the strength or status of your opponent. But it doesn't seem to have much effect on strong people. If you are a rookie adventurer, you can see your skills, but if you are a veteran, you can only see how strong you are.

 You're right, Haruka. I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out. .......
 I'm not sure what to make of it.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.
I see. Then there's [Searching for enemies]. Let's try it. ......

 Feeling again the strange sensation of somehow knowing how to use it, I searched for signs of my surroundings.
 I thought it would show me a map like radar, but it didn't. It only gave me a vague idea of the direction and strength of the reaction, and whether it was hostile or not.
 Unlike magic, there is no clear sense of consuming something, but you feel mentally fatigued as if you are being forced to do a lot of detailed work, so it seems difficult to keep using it.

What do you think?
Yeah, I feel some kind of biological reaction to ......, but I don't feel any definite hostility.
Yeah, I can feel that, too.
I can feel it too. - Well, you don't have an enemy scanner, do you?
"Oh!" "Oh, so my [Spotting] is useless?

 I'm not sure what to make of this.
 I'm not sure what to make of that.

I'm not sure what to make of that. But if you can recognize it in its natural state, you might be able to get the [Spotting enemy] skill in the near future. I don't know anything about it.
Yeah, yeah. Besides, it's not a bad thing to have more spotters, right?
That's true, but ......

 I know, but I don't know how to explain this feeling. .......

But it's good that there's no hostile reaction. But it is good to know that there is no hostile reaction. Well, we have to catch something for lunch, and the demons might be approaching, so keep checking back.

 They didn't skip lunch, but got it locally.

Is it gibier for lunch? ......
"Yes. You can eat wild grasses, but they have to be tempura or something, otherwise they're not edible.
You're right, most of the wild plants have a sour taste. Besides, tempura of wild grasses only has the taste of batter, seasoning and a little flavor.

 There are surprisingly few wild vegetables that can be eaten in a normal way.
 It's only served at inns because it's rare, but if it were sold in supermarkets as a normal vegetable, I probably wouldn't buy it.

In the first place, there is no oil or flour. There is only salt. If you don't catch it, there's no lunch. Good luck, both of you!
"Yes, sir!

 No food is hard.
 And since we're leaving the dismantling to Haruka, we should at least try to kill it.

"Hey, Toya, what are you aiming for? "Hey Toya, what are you aiming for?
"No, only whether it's big or small. No, just big or small. The weapon is my wooden sword, right? I'm not sure if your fire arrows will be good enough to kill it.

"Yeah, well. If it turns to charcoal, we can't eat it.
Right? Then it's hard to eat birds. Small animals like rabbits might run away. Then, boars, deer, and other animals that might attack us would be better, right?
"Right. The question is, are there any such animals in the world?
All right, you two. You can talk to me about hunting, but first we need to gather herbs. Your ability to sleep in bed tonight depends on it.

 While Toya and I were discussing hunting, Haruka clapped her hands and pointed to the ground.

In the meantime, I don't know what kind of herbs there are, but there seems to be a good amount of them, so we'll just collect as many as we can.
"Okay. I'll be able to collect them without hesitation.

 If you look at the ground consciously, you can easily find out which herb it is thanks to the [help].
 You don't have to get lost, so you can save a lot of time.

Um, I didn't get any help.
"Toya, can you just take the obvious ones? Also, there's [Appraisal], right? You can try to appraise this.

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I'm going to try.

"Let's see, herb 'harwort', material for wound medicine.
Huh. I guess [Appraisal] has more information. Then I'll ask Toya to divide them by type and focus on vigilance.
"Hmm? If you just want to divide them, you don't need the appraisal. Even if you don't know what it is, you can bring it to the guild and they will buy it for you.
That's true, but there might be some things that are hard to distinguish. Both can be used as medicinal herbs, and they look similar, but they are different. Besides, it's better to know the effects if you can. I'll probably use them in my alchemy when I can afford it.

 Yeah, plants are sometimes like that, aren't they?
 Even if you explain it to me, I can hardly tell the difference.

"I see. I see. I'll take care of the guards, and you two do your best to collect.

 "Okay. I'll take care of the guards, and you two do your best!

No, let's get the obvious herbs, okay?
"Yes. We can sense them, so we can be alert while we collect them.

 When we pointed this out, Toya crouched down dejectedly and began to rake the grass.
