87-077 Operation to increase the force (3)

 After reading the Basic Grimoire with my head down for quite a while, I slammed the book shut, exhaled heavily, and stretched out to relax.

 My position wasn't very good, so I stiffened up a bit. I rotated my shoulders and neck to loosen the stiffness.

There's nothing new there. There's nothing new in there. ...... Some of it might be useful, though.

 In the event that you're not sure what to do, you can always ask your doctor.

 Most of them were systematic explanations of things that I had understood experientially, but there were some things in the book that bothered me.

 It said, "You will not faint even if you consume magic power.

 To be more precise, it says, "In principle, you can faint, but in reality, it's almost impossible.

 What this means is that, for example, it is not impossible to keep running until you pass out. However, normal people stop and rest before that.

 The same applies to magic. If the magic power becomes low enough to cause problems in the consciousness of the magician, he or she will naturally be unable to use any more magic power, and even if he or she is in the middle of casting a spell, the spell will be interrupted and fail.

 Magic is completed when the practitioner pours magic power into it, not when it sucks up magic power on its own.

 As an exception, magic tools made by alchemists can automatically absorb magic power, but only if the opponent has plenty of magic power, and ordinary magic tools cannot absorb too much magic power from an opponent with little magic power.

 Therefore, it is almost impossible to lose consciousness due to lack of magic power.

It's great that you don't have to worry about fainting, but there's no way to measure your magic power.

 According to the book, "It is essential for a wizard to know how much magic power he has. In particular, for frequently used spells, it is important to know how many times you can use the spell during normal times, and how long you need to rest after consuming the spell to be able to use it again. If you don't know these things for sure, you may be caught unawares in battle.

 However, I am grateful to know that I can increase the amount of magic power by accumulating training.

 It's a good thing that I'm not the only one who has a problem with this.

I'm not sure if it's because of the amount of magic or because I'm used to dealing with it.

 Hmmm, something cool about the Dagger Technique. If Yuki were to wear a black costume, she would look like a small, quick ninja.

 If she can improve her speed by strengthening her body, it's not impossible, right? Yuki has acquired such skills as [Hide], [Stealthy Foot], [Throwing], and [Evasion]. You can't be a s*xy kunoichi, but...

I think I'll try training in [Iron Wall].

 I've been practicing this as well, but it was harder to get an idea of what it is when training on my own compared to the 【Muscle Strengthening】.

 In the event that you've got a lot of time, you may want to take a look at the following tips.

 I tried tapping my hands and feet, imagining a kind of magical barrier, but I couldn't get the feeling.

 My hand trying to hit it and my consciousness trying to repel it.
 I was confused by the conflicting thoughts.

It's best if you have someone to help you. ...... Do you want to try to cast a spell?

 It's not possible to cast an attack spell indoors, but it's not a problem here.

I'd like it to be a little hot ...... so that if I make a mistake, I only get a minor burn.

 Normally, I would refuse to train like this, but there is healing magic in this world. But in this world, there is healing magic, and a burn can be easily healed.

 I'm going to practice shooting a very weak "Fire Arrow" at some grass before ...... shooting myself.

 A level that burns in an instant is not good. Adjust the level so that the green grass turns brown...... or yellow.

 After practicing a few times, roll up your pants and go for it!


 Hot! But it's not unbearable. But not unbearable. A drop of boiling water, perhaps.
 I was chanting "barrier, barrier" in my mind, "self-destruct? Self-harm? while chanting "barrier, barrier" in my mind.

 And for a while, I held on to the pain.

 When my legs had turned red, I finally saw ........


 It's not hot!
 The "Fire Arrow" that I shot out disappears as if it is blocked by something.


 I'm not sure what to make of this.

You'll be able to find a lot more information on the web.

 When Haruka saw my reddened leg, she rushed over and quickly fixed it.

"Oh, I'm sorry. To be honest, it hurt quite a bit.

 "Oh, sorry. It goes away.

"What's wrong? You didn't just start hurting yourself, did you? ......
It's not like you've just suddenly become self-harming,....... No!

 It's not that I'm not a good person.
 I thought I had gotten it, but now I don't have the Iron Wall skill!
 And instead, there's a [Magic Barrier] skill!

"What's wrong?
No, I was working hard to get [Iron Wall], but...
Oh, so that's why you have such legs.

Oh. Beating myself wasn't good enough, so I used magic, and the skill I got was [Magic Barrier].

"Magic Barrier"? I'm not sure if it's a good idea. I'll have to copy it as soon as possible!

I'm going to have to copy it right away!

 I glare at Yuki, who smiles happily. I've always thought that skill copying was quite subtle, but when a party member learns a useful new skill, it's quite effective. But it's only useful if you have someone who's willing to teach it to you.

But in the end, you still need to 'teach' them, so Yuki will be in pain to varying degrees, right?

"Oh, yeah. In other words, the strength of the magic I cast on Yuki is up to me?

What? Nao is going to leave a mark on my soft skin? You'll have to take responsibility for that.

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

I smiled at her. Haruka's healing magic is powerful. You know?
"I'll heal you ......, but in moderation, okay?
That's terrible! You can't stop me anyway!

 In the event you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to always ask for help. I'm not an S, and I don't enjoy torturing girls.

 But I can't make it any weaker than it is, because it would probably be useless without some level of pain. You should be able to learn in less time than I can, so I'll let you endure that much.

But more importantly, are Yuki and Haruka able to use daggers now?
Yes. I've got [Swordsmanship Lv.1] and [Daggers Lv.1].
And Haruka? I thought Yuki would be able to quickly learn [Swordsmanship Lv.1] by copying it. ...... Should I learn swordsmanship too?

 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea. I'm sure that swords are much more useful than spears in tight spaces.
 If you're not as talented as Yuki and Haruka, you can still learn how to do it with half a day of training. ......

If you want to learn, I can teach you.
Yeah. One of these days, please. Right now, I'd like to learn the Iron Barrier.

 In a way, it was a mistake to learn the magic barrier.

[Iron Wall]. If I want to imitate Nao's training, should I just keep hitting her hard?
Yeah, I've done that before, so let's give it a try.
Okay, I'm on it!

 I'll help you later.

I'll help you out later, okay?
I'll help you out later, okay?" "...... Haha, that'd be great.

 I'll help you later, okay?" "Hahaha, that'd be great," Toya said with a dry smile as he set the wooden sword down on the ground and then snapped a branch from a nearby bush and held it at the ready.

 It was a wise decision. If it hurts too much, I might have to use too much force when I help you.

"Shall we train on our own?

Yes, we should. Muscle Strengthening, Iron Barrier, and if possible Magic Barrier are important skills for survival.

"Okay, okay, I'll teach you well!

 I'll teach you well!" While saying this, the women moved away from us and started training.

Am I supposed to just hit them?
"Oh. --Just don't hit me in the head, okay?
I know.

 I glare at Toya, who is walking around me with some kind of happiness, and begins to whack me with a tree branch, and I picture the branch flicking back.

 I don't know what the difference is between this and the time I got the magic barrier, but there's no other way to do it, so I can't help it.

"Hey, Nao, I'm afraid of your eyes.
"Don't worry about it. I'm just trying to keep my spirits up.

 It's true that I'm a little annoyed at being hit so casually, but it's not that I hate Toya.
 It's not that I hate Toya. It's just that I've been doing this for a while, being aware of my magical powers.
 In the event that you're not sure what to do, you can always ask your doctor.

The moment you think that the pain you feel when you are struck becomes much lighter, you immediately check your status.

 I clenched my hands and struck a gut pose, but Toya stopped and rolled her eyes.

I'm sure you've already got it. You've already got it, haven't you?
"Yeah. I'm not sure if it's because I've learned the magic barrier. I'm sure you're not the only one.

 The words 【Iron Wall Lv.1】 shine brilliantly in the status.
 I feel like I was able to do this in about half the time compared to earlier.

 Of course, I had done a lot of trial and error before this so that I could learn 【Iron Wall】, so I can't say that this didn't have an effect on me.

"Really? So we're switching sides?

Yeah. I'll let you do the muscle strengthening, but which do you want to do first, the magic barrier or the iron wall?

"I can do the Iron Wall indoors if I want to. Do you want to start with the magic barrier?
Okay. Then give me your arm or leg.

 I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.

 Burns can be healed with healing magic, but burnt clothes can't be fixed. There was no way she could hit him with the Fire Arrow over his clothes.

Let's go, then.
Come on! I'm ready!
Be my guest.

 He fires the Fire Arrow at Toya's bare legs. Of course, I was very careful about the power of the fire arrow, but ...... the pain that still lingers in my body caused me to lose control a little, right?

I'm not sure what to do. You! This! Did you really do this?

 The moment the magic hits, Toya jumps up and gives me an incredulous look.

I'm not sure what to say.

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but I think it's a good idea. Of course, the fact that it hit me on the inside of my thigh was just a coincidence.

"Softer! Softer!
I can't help it.

 This time, I'll concentrate a little more and aim for the kneecap. The skin is thicker, so it should be a little better.

It's hot! But I can take it!

That's good. Let's go for it. Hang in there. And get the magic barrier!

Advice! What's your advice?

Don't think. Feel it. --Feel it. - Yes, the magic!

It seems so deep, but it's not deep at all! I'm not sure what that magic is!

 I turned a deaf ear to Toya's protests and continued my attack.

 In fact, if you ask me, "What is magic power? I can't explain it to you.

 It may be irresponsible, but if I keep eating magic, I'm sure I'll be able to sense it sooner or later.

 All I can do is to give you some vague advice, like, "It's kind of like this. That's all I can offer.
 Hang in there, Toya. I'm rooting for you.

 By the time the training, which lasted until the evening, came to an end with Toya's acquisition of the magic barrier, both of his legs were almost completely red.
