14-013 First job (5)


 A few moments after entering the room. You'll be able to find a lot of people who are interested in this sort of thing.

I've successfully earned about 18,000 Reais! Here's a round of applause!

 Clap, clap, clap!

 We both looked up at the bag and clapped our hands loudly.

We'll be able to live in this world now!
"Ah! We've earned this!

 Of course, this amount of money is not enough to live on.
 Of course, we can't live on this amount of money, but it's a great relief to know that we can earn it ourselves.

"Oh, I'm so happy. I'm so happy. Is this what it's like for a working person when they get their first paycheck?

 Toya is expressing his joy with a big smile, and I'm sure I have a similar expression.
 Haruka, who has had a stiff expression since she came here, is now smiling and holding a bag of rewards.

I've never had a part-time job before, so I don't know about that, but I don't think you'll ever feel a sense of accomplishment like this. I've never had a part-time job, so I don't know.
I've never had a part-time job before, so I don't know. The only money I've made so far has been pocket money from helping my parents.

 Our high school basically forbade part-time jobs, so none of the three of us had ever worked before.
 So, in a way, this was our first salary.

But we made a lot more than we expected. It's about 180,000 yen a day. The three of us can live on 1,000 Reais a day, so it won't be too hard, will it? This world might be a lot easier than you think.

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'm not the only one.

It's sweet! Toya, you're too naive! Your lack of planning is the difference between life and death!
"Is that so?

 "Is that so?" Toya asks with a puzzled expression, having been very strongly denied by Haruka.
 I'm not sure what to say.

First of all, there is no social security in this world! There is no unemployment insurance, no accident insurance, no social insurance, no health insurance, no welfare! There is no unemployment insurance, no accident insurance, no social insurance, no health insurance, no welfare! No one will help you if you get injured and can't work, and the same goes when you get old. There are no pensions, so if you don't save your money, buy a house, buy farmland, or have a life plan by then, you will regret it!
Oh, oh, .......

 Haruka's powerful explanation made Toya falter.

I'm sure you'll be able to understand what I'm talking about, but isn't that a dream come true?

 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm not sure what to do.

"Dream? I don't want to eat it. I don't like the idea of you skinny bastards dying out in the middle of nowhere.

 You've so easily excluded yourself, Haruka.
 No, well, I'm sure Haruka can handle it.
 Maybe it's true that women are more realistic.

I don't deny that you can pursue your dreams. I don't deny that you can pursue your dreams, and I don't deny that Toya can get a beast-eared bride or create a beast-eared harem. But that's only possible if you have security. Don't get the order wrong. Okay?

 You can't go against this Haruka.
 We exchanged glances and both nodded stiffly.

Good! In fact, you won't be able to stay on the front lines for very long. In fact, you won't be able to stay on the front line for very long, your strength will fade in your thirties, and even more so in your forties. Ideally, you'll have another 20 years or so to save up for living and medical expenses for the next 40 to 50 years.

 That's even less dreamy than I imagined.

We'll probably be able to work more because Nao and I are elves, but we'll have a long retirement ahead of us, and to be safe, we want to have more than enough money saved up before Toya leaves. Toya will have to earn twice as much if she's getting a wife, and several times as much if she's getting a harem!
That sounds like a lot of work. ....... I'm not sure if I should be thinking about how to earn money after I retire. Will I be able to get a wife? Will I be able to live on my own in retirement?

 I'm going to get a wife with beast ears! I'm going to get a wife with beast ears!" Toya, who had been talking about getting a wife with beast ears, now has a dead look in his eyes.
 Is this the anxiety of not having a regular job?
 He is free, but all the responsibility falls on him.
 No, there is no safety net, so if you fail, you will end up in slums, slavery, or death. .......

"Hey, what's it like being a common adventurer?
"What? General? Let's see. ...... Want to hear it? You might regret it.

 You'll be able to get a lot more than that.

No, I'm more concerned when you say it like that. Tell me.
So? Well then, ....... There is no retirement for the average adventurer!


 What do you mean?
 What do you mean?

"I'm going to die before I'm old!
...... Really?
Yeah. Seriously.

 Seriously, what a dream!

 If you're a successful adventurer, you can live a comfortable retirement with the money you've saved, or you can live in a village where you get a house and farmland and work as a farmer.
 Adventurers with no talent will be weeded out, dying in the middle of a mission, or going into slavery or slums when their money runs out.
 Adventurers who are good at what they do find a job and drop out of the game.
 Ordinary adventurers who can earn enough money to live comfortably can't find the right time to stop, so they continue to play even when their strength wanes.
 That's how it seems.

That's why we're aiming for a certain level of success. --I'm sure you can get by on the average adventurer's income, as long as you don't think too much like Toya did earlier.
No, no, only a few are as steady as Haruka.

 In fact, most young people don't have a plan.
 If they could live within their means while saving for retirement, they wouldn't be inundated with commercials for consumer loans and credit cards.
 I'm sure you're thinking, "I can make more money in time! I'm sure I'll be able to make more money in time!" If you're thinking that easily, you'll probably end up becoming what Haruka calls a "common adventurer.

That's why it's forbidden to spend cash just because you have it. I'll keep your wallet for a while, no complaints?
"Yeah, I guess so. I want some money, but I don't mind. Hey, Nao.
Yeah. That's fine, at least until you can afford it. --Maybe you should come up with your own life plan.
Hmm. I'm an elf, so it's going to be very different from my previous life. If you want, we can think about it together.

 If you want, we can figure it out together.

    I don't know.

I'm sure you'll agree with me.

 After a light bath and a meal, we were chatting until bedtime, when I suddenly became aware of such a thing.

What's different about it?
I'm not sure how to describe it, but it's ...... not very good.

 The other skills are understood to be numerical representations of the abilities acquired through training, etc., but these two - and to be exact, [help] - seem to be a little different from the other skills.
 The AR display allows you to see information that is normally unavailable to you.

 You can also see your own status in the AR display, but this is understandable if you think that the evil gods gave it to you as a service to help you understand what you have made of your character. It's just displaying the information you already know.
 On the other hand, 【Detect】 displays the status, and 【Appraise】 pulls the item data from somewhere and displays it.

 If what the evil god said about the world being like a game with levels is correct, it doesn't seem so strange, but in this world, you can't check status, and its existence itself is not known. The same goes for item data.
 The evil god's words, "There is no such thing as a cheat," are too much for us to believe that this skill was added as a service only to us.
 Isn't this skill just a cheat?

If you think about it simply, this world has a skill system that people don't know about, and it is possible to learn the skills of "detecting" and "appraising". How about the fact that AR displays and the like are also common?
"Hmm. There was oxygen before the discovery of oxygen, and the earth was still moving during the celestial movement theory.

 Then, if we can find a way to check it, will we be able to grasp the value of our abilities and experiences?

But what does it mean that we can find out information through [appraisal]? Is there some kind of akashic record that you're pulling information from?
Hey, hey, don't question the game system.
No, it's not a game!

 I shrugged my shoulders and shook my head in overaction.
 I'm not sure what to make of this.
 I'm sure you've heard of it, but I'm not sure if you've heard of it. .......

I'm not sure if it's an external [otherworldly common sense] kind of thing.

 I'm not sure what to make of this.

"......? What does that mean?
In other words, by taking [appraisal], you are considered to have studied a certain amount of knowledge, and within that range, you have knowledge. I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.

 ...... Well...

"Sorry, I don't understand!

 I'm sorry, I don't understand!" Haruka thought for a moment and opened her mouth.

In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site. I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
"...... Oh, I see. In other words, the appraisal level is like the second level of the English proficiency test, and if you want to get to the first level, you have to study.
That's what it means. And I think the skill is in being able to pull out what you remember instantly and without error.

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea for me to go to the gym, but I'm sure it's a good idea for you.
 It's kind of like a memory-enhancing skill, and it's pretty useful on its own, but then it's not really a cheat.

So, what about [Detect]?

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

Have you tried using ...... Nao?
Yeah, some in the guild.

 For most of them, the only thing I could figure out was that they looked strong, but for some of them, it also showed their skills.
 I'm not sure what to make of this.

I'm just guessing here, but if you think about it the same way you think about appraisal, then the information displayed by the "see through" may not actually be correct.
"...... yes?

 Then what's the skill for?

In other words, it's just a way to determine from a variety of information, for example, that a person is likely to use a sword at level 2 or so, and display that information.
You're just translating your own intuition, knowledge, and experience?
Yes. Do you have a sword, calluses on your hands, weight shifts that belong to a skilled warrior, or are you just using your skill set to characterize things that we can determine through experience?

 Then Haruka added, "Of course, both of these are just guesses," but I think she made a good point.

"Hmmm... I'm not sure what to make of this.
"That's right. You can't check your ability values or experience values. It's not much like a game except for the character makeup.
Well, thanks to your character creation, we'll be able to make a living.
Yeah, that's true. If you had been brought here in your original body, you might have died in the boar today.
In a way, we should be grateful to the evil god, right?

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

 It's hard to thank him honestly because of the landmines.
