144-129 Bomb remarks (unexploded?) )

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

I'm not sure what to say. Are you tired? --This is not a good time to learn how to recover mental strength. ......

"No, no, no, seriously, seriously!

 It's also a great way to get the most out of your business.

 But all I get is a worried look from her.

 The members of the group seemed to think it was just a joke, but my insistence made them uneasy.

Nao-kun......, you've been under a lot of stress for some time now, haven't you? I'm not sure if you're getting enough sleep at night. When you start hallucinating, it's pretty serious. ......

No, seriously, don't worry! I'm serious! See, you guys met God, too! Before you came to this world! And now you're talking about d*mnation.

That's right, isn't it? God is alive in this world, isn't he?

 Yuki clapped her hands as if she had just realized what I had said.
 No, there is no Nietzsche in this world.
 It's not impossible, and Toya and the others nodded their heads in agreement.

"Actually, I came by the temple. I was wondering if I could get some holy water.

 I told them all what I had just experienced.

 I told them all what I had just experienced, which was indeed the story of how I came to be here. The detailed explanation may have cleared up their doubts, and Haruka and the others nodded their heads, somewhat surprised but satisfied, with happy expressions on their faces.

You can check your level and experience? It's a great idea!

"Yeah. Yeah, it's nice to know what you're getting. Although it's a bit ...... expensive to have to pay every time.

Well, it's definitely going to an orphanage, so that's tolerable, now. When I first came here, it would have been a very painful expense.

 He said he'd give me a silver coin if I came often, but in the beginning, even a silver coin was important. The first few days were a real tightrope walk.

But the first login bonus... I like ........ Is there an anniversary event or something?

"No, I don't think they'll go that far. I'm sure it's not going to go that far.

But Nao-kun got something that works for everyone, right? But Nao got something that works on everyone.

"Well, I'm the only one in the party, right?

 I'd be lying if I said I wasn't confused. I knew I wanted to have amazing abilities.

 But I knew we would be fine, but I didn't want to risk the disadvantage of us not getting along because of it.

That's why I got the [Slightly Increased Experience] benefit. Even 10 percent is better than nothing.

"It's useful if you have it, but it's a fine line if you don't. That's why they call it game balance.

 Instead of killing 11 orcs, you only need to kill 10. ...... Yeah, it's subtle.
 At least, it's not a useful ability that makes you stronger all at once.

 If this has an effect on your normal training, it will probably make you remember things a little better.

 The effect of 10 minutes of training is 11 minutes. ...... It's not so subtle.

 No, I'm grateful. I did put in some money, but it was basically given to me by Loha.

Well, I can see why Nao is so smug, that was useful information. It had nothing to do with the undead.
"Ugh, that's true. --No, it had nothing to do with the fact that holy water is not so easy to get.

 I'm sure you're not the only one.

I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's worth it.
I'm sure it is if you don't have any special skills. ......

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

 If you're looking for the best way to get the most out of your business, you're going to want to make sure you're getting the most out of your business.

 If holy water is valuable enough, a skill that adds high value to water would be quite useful.

 If done well, it could be more profitable than Toya's [Kurosmithing] skill, if I do say so myself.

I don't know what to think, so let's put it aside for now and all go to that temple tomorrow. You're wondering about levels and experience, right?

I agree! I'm curious too!

I don't think they're all that different, but I'm curious, too.

Then tomorrow we'll go to the temple and get ready to go to Kerg.

 The discussion ended with Toya's words, and the topic moved on to dinner.

    The next day we started early in the morning.

 The next day, he had brought everyone early in the morning to the temple he had visited yesterday.

 The next day, he brought everyone early in the morning to the temple he visited yesterday.

This is the temple of Adversus, not of the evil god ......?

 I nodded at Haruka's words, but kept my voice quiet.

Yes. But from now on, it's best not to talk about the evil god. It's like a major god.

I know. It would be dangerous if the priest hears about it. Then let's be consistent with Adversus-sama from now on.

 Everyone nodded at Yuki's suggestion, even though she said, "It's a little hard to say.

 Even though he - or rather, the main god(?) Even though he - or the main deity (?) - called himself that, his followers would not be happy to be treated as evil gods. In fact, if we were radical believers, we might be subjected to the Inquisition and ostracized.

 There is no need to cause unnecessary trouble over a mere term of endearment.
 Even in a country that is tolerant of religion,......, it is precisely because it is tolerant that acts that undermine the faith of others will be severely criticized.

 When I entered the temple with Haruka and the others, I found the goddess who had taken care of me yesterday there.
 From what she was holding in her hand, I guessed that she had been cleaning the temple since early morning.

"Oh, you're ...... here again yesterday, aren't you?

I'm sorry to bother you. My companions wanted to pray too, so I brought them.

That's good. God is always watching over you.

 I bowed my head to the priest who nodded his head with a happy expression, walked in front of the statue of the god, and threw money into the money box.

 The same as yesterday, a large silver coin. Haruka and the others follow suit and throw in a large silver coin.

 The priest who was watching them called out to them with a slightly puzzled expression.

I'm very grateful, but there's no need to be too hard on yourself. The most important thing is how you feel. God does not discriminate based on the amount of your donation.

 No, the god told me to donate.

 --If you come often, you can give silver coins.

No, it's the least we can do. You run an orphanage, don't you? It's the least we can do to help the less fortunate children.

 The one who smiled and responded without hesitation was Haruka.
 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.

I'm not sure what to say. What a wonderful thing to do! You must be blessed by the gods. I'll be praying for your safety too, if I may be so bold.

 We felt a little uncomfortable with the priest praying on his knees as he said this, but we also imitated him in our prayers to the statue.

"Nao is now level 13. She needs 2,320 experience to level up to the next level.

 We heard the same voice as yesterday.
 However, there was no response to my question in my mind, and it seemed that it was really just telling me my level and experience.

 I don't remember the details.
 I don't remember the details, but I think they said 2,500. .......

 I haven't hunted any demons since then, and the only thing I've done is my daily training. So does that mean I can get some experience from training?

 While I was thinking about this, the other members seemed to have finished asking me about my level and experience, and each stood up with a slightly surprised and happy expression on their faces.

 I followed suit and hurriedly stood up.

I'm sorry to have disturbed you.

 I'm not sure if you've seen this before, but I'm sure you've.

No, you are welcome to come anytime. You don't have to make a donation, you can just pray to the gods.
"Yes, thank you.

 I thank you, but I don't plan to come when I can't donate.

 If we don't donate, they won't tell us our level and experience. That's our only goal.
 Sorry to the priests, but we don't believe in any gods.

 We said goodbye to the priest who saw us off with a smile, and left the temple.
 After a short walk, Toya opened his mouth happily.

"Hey, how did it go? I was level 13!
"Me too.

I was 12. I was 12. Is it because I joined later?
I'm the same as Natsuki. Haruka and the others had trained before coming to Sahlstat, so maybe that's the difference?

You can say that there is no difference at level 1. As the level goes up, it will be the same.

 In general, in games, it is natural that the amount of experience required increases as the level increases.

 Even if we don't reach the same level, we don't plan to attack at the very edge where it would be a problem. Safety first. That's it.

12 and 13. You've been an adventurer for about six months, right?

Yeah. I don't know if this level is good or bad, but it's nice to have a rough idea.

Oh, by the way, someone said that I'm doing well considering how long I've been here.

Is that so? Then I guess it's not so bad for an adventurer of this rank? It's a pity we can't compare ourselves to other adventurers.

 The other adventurers can't check their levels like we can, so I guess it can't be helped, but in the end, our levels are just a relative evaluation among us, and we can't tell if we're stronger than others.

 If I had to guess, I'd say it's the [inspection] that God pointed out.

 You may be able to make a pseudo-level evaluation, because you can make sensory judgments as to whether you are strong or weak compared to yourself.

If you're a classmate, you may know your level. ......

 I'm sure your classmates will be able to tell you your level, but " Natsuki smiles in annoyance as he says this.

 You'll be able to find a lot more information on the web. I can't help but wonder if it's worth sharing this information with the classmates I've met so far.

 If it were Tommy, we could tell him, but since he's already a blacksmith and not an adventurer, it wouldn't make much sense.

 However, if Tommy has a gamer's mind, he will enjoy just knowing his level and experience, so it would be good to teach him when he has a chance.

Well, to be honest, I don't want to be called 'no good. I'd be pretty upset if someone told me I was slacking off too much. We're working pretty hard, aren't we?

"Compared to the adventurers you see in this town, yes. But it's no use looking down, Toya.

That's Natsuki. You're so serious! But it's true, isn't it? But it's true. Saying, "There are people who have worse grades than me," only fills you with vanity, it doesn't mean anything.

 The high achievers have a different mindset. I guess I'm different from those who compromise by saying, "Well, I'm above average, so it's okay.
 Even so, I made an effort to avoid getting red marks.

 Or, more accurately, was I being made to work hard? Haruka and the others.

Now, I know we're supposed to be getting ready to go to Kerg, but ...... what kind of preparation do I really need to do? What am I supposed to do?

"It usually takes about three days to get from Laffan to Kerg by carriage, so you'll need to pack some food and check for regular flights or travel on your own. ......

 Haruka slurred his words as he thought about it.

We don't need food in our case.
The same goes for a change of clothes. I'm not sure what to do.
We can get water with magic. ......

No need to prepare, right?

 Magic bags and magic, very useful.

"Then we'll just have to see if we can get regular service. But if it's only three days by carriage, it's faster for us to run.
We don't have any luggage.

 We've been training hard, and our running ability is nowhere near that of an Olympic marathoner.

 Moreover, since we can put all the luggage we need to carry in our magic bags, we can run with just one body.

 Even if he rode a horse, let alone a carriage, he would probably get there faster than if he ran on his own feet.

So, what do we do? Are we leaving? Now.

 There was no one who disagreed with those words, and as a result, we changed our plans and left Laffan later that day.
