Part 1

What is going on here? Who was that announcing?

Looking around to see if there was anyone around, but couldn’t see any hint of life. After moving around, I felt much stronger than I was ever before.

Menu!

Nothing happened

Status!

A window appear in front of my face.

As expected this world had a game like system. Before taking over as owner of the diner, I was an avid gamer that played so much, I almost go kick out of the house for doing nothing but playing games.

Ahh, cheat mode activated huh..

I tried out a few things in this world.

Running at top speed, I can run at 80 km/h without feeling tired after 15 minutes (Agility + Stamina stats)

Lifting massive boulders with ease (Strength stats)

Carving rocks into intricate shapes (Dexterity stats)

Jumping 100 meters vertically and landing without any injuries. I got a shock of my life during the fall though, but somehow calmed down and assumed a proper landing stance (Intelligence stats).

I am practically indestructible.

If I was to be discovered having these abilities, most likely I would be subjected to human experiment. So I decided to keep a low profile on these stats for the time being.

Next, I went on to test other things.

Item!

An item window appeared in front of him.

Being an owner of a business, money was the first thing I took notice of.

 

Copper: 0

Silver: 0

Gold: 0

 

It’s all zero?!

Looks like money will be an issue here. And there is still so much things I do not know about this world.

Then I saw if there was any equipment dropped… There was only one weapon, {Lucifer’s Chef Knife}

This is the knife which I used to stab the eye of that serpent. This knife definitely is my beloved knife which I always used.

{Lucifer’s Chef Knife}: Unique knife which can only be wielded by Jin

Durability: Indestructible

Requirement: Jin

Hell’s Kitchen (set):

Lucifer’s Chef Knife (Obtained)

Shiva’s Paring Knife (Not Obtained)

Hades’ Serrated Knife (Not Obtained)

Loki’s Boning Knife (Not Obtained)

Oni’s Cleaver (Not Obtained)

Looks like a gift to accompany me in this new world. And looks like I have four other knives to seek out for.

I tested the Dismantle skills using my trusty knife.

Skin of the black serpent was ripped out easily. [Serpent Queen’s Skin x10 obtained]

I pulled out the fangs on from the huge mouth. [Serpent Queen’s Fangs x2 obtained]

The dismantled materials get absorbed into my item box automatically. It seems the bones, meat and other parts doesn’t get sorted.

Due to the aftermath of the battle from the sky beasts, I had dust all over his body. I walked towards the stream to get cleaned, only to find the shock of my life.

I look like a 15 year old?!

Remembering my youth days, I recalled my cute ex-girlfriend who was my junior from the cooking club. Girls all seem to be smitten by my looks: uninterested, silent, bad-boy looking.

In the reflection of the water was a face I once had when I was the hot topic of girls in school. Stop getting surprised over every other thing!

I then realized this is my chance for a life that I have dreamed of. With these stats, I can be a hero or even the strongest human.

I need to find out more about this world. Does people know their own levels? Are they able to choose their skills? Or is it just me?

Tons of questions are swarming my mind right now.

I followed the stream of water, thinking it should lead a village or a town. After running for 5 hours straight, finally a village was in sight.

From far, farmlands were plotted along the stream for irrigation. Seems like the main crops were barley wheat. The farmers doesn’t seem to have crop cycle knowledge as all the crops are barley wheat, with only a few crops of tomatoes and leafy greens.

All the villagers were staring at me.. Travelers do not seem often visit this village I guess.

As I walked towards the village, two man who looked like guards came running towards me.

 

“Hey! Stop there!”

The guard looks like he was at least 2 meter in size ran towards me with his hand raise, show me to stay at where I stand. I shall name him Mr.Muscle

“Name yourself and your purpose!”

The other guard who looked pale but seems to be of higher agility gave me an intense stare. I will call him Pale

 

They are speaking in English? It’s either because of my INT stats, that lets me understand language easily or they are really using English.

 

I raised up both my hands and said: “I am a lost traveler looking for a place to rest.”

 

The villagers had features same of Americans and Europeans with bright coloured hair, while I had the Asian looks with dark black hair. So it was obvious I do not belong in this region.

 

“You look like you are from Zidai. But you are coming from the south. Why is that?”

Mr.Muscle gave a curious look.

“I, I am not sure. It seems like I lost my way.”

 

Zidai sounds Asian or Japanese, so the people there should look like me.

Well, I can’t really tell them I am from another alternate world right?

[Skill Persuasion obtained]

[Skill Fraud obtained]

Persuasion? I quickly did a check when the two guards were discussing.

Pale having some doubt. “We noticed the Black Queen flew there yesterday. Did you witness any battles?”

“I saw a red wyvern fought with the black serpent. But I don’t know what are they.”

Mr Muscle gave a shocked expression. “You don’t know of the 4 Sky Beasts?! Where are you from?”

“A.. A far away place, I fell asleep and woke up in the valleys..”

Pale and Mr. Muscle discussed among themselves, then turned to look at me.

“Hmm.. I see.”

“Let’s bring him to the chief to decide.”

That easily?! (Persuasion and Fraud skill is too handy!)

“Thank you..”

 

 

Part 2

I was led to the best looking hut in the village, along the way, I feel like stares were directed at me. When I entered the hut, I saw a man in his early 40s seated at the table in the center of the extensive living room.

Saying it is a hut makes it feel under-rated, the inside of the hut looks to be well reinforced with cement. It even had a well equipped kitchen.

The two guards left the hut after the man gave a nod. He was in the process of making a pot of tea.

He looked at me and said: “Take a seat young man.”

I hesitated as my real age wasn’t anywhere close to being young. But in this world I only looked like a 15 year old.

I took a seat opposite of the man and was trying to guess what kind of tea is he making. As its fragrance drifted throughout the hut, I was reminiscing the afternoon tea Kris always used to make during our break.

 

“I have heard from the guards that you traveled from the valley.”

 

His voice was deep and husky. He looks to be well-trained with battle scars like an ex-soldier or someone who have fought in a war.

 

“My name is Gawain, leader of the pioneer village here. People around here call me Chief.”

“I am Jin, it’s nice to meet you Chief.”

 

Isn’t Gawain one of the Knights of the Round Table in King Arthur’s tale? Maybe it’s just a coincidence.

 

“I can feel strength from you.. For such a young age to have so much power, are you one of those ‘Users’?”

“Users?”

 

Chief Gawain and I had a long chat about the country’s history and where could I go to find more information about going back to my own world.

Apparently, every once a few dozen years there will be a phenomenon called the “Generate” that happens by nature. So someone or something will be summoned from another world.

The last time, 36 years ago, the legendary sword Excalibur got summoned into this country, Camelot, which the current King Arthur pulled out from a cave filled with demons and monsters. King Arthur then used the sword to fight against the corrupt ruler Gastrof. Gawain is one of his Knights of the Round Table who fought with King Arthur. He is now leading this pioneer village ‘Farvale’ to expand Camelot’s land.

Every monster or warrior in the world has their own Rank. Ranks start from the bottom F Rank all the way to S Rank.

 

Each Rank has a class system:

10th to 1st Class

 

10x F Rank warriors is equivalent to 1x E Rank warrior

10x E Rank = 1x D Rank

40x D Rank = 1x C Rank

30x C Rank = 1x B Rank

20x B Rank = 1x A Rank

10x A Rank = 1x S Rank (Isn’t a S Rank almost an one-man army?!)

 

In this world, an average person can only reach Rank E/1st Class. The difference between a Rank E to Rank D is what decides if you have the potential to be a Knight or just another warrior.

Chief Gawain here is a Rank C/1st Class Knight. When he ask what Rank I was, I couldn’t answer and said I did not know. He said the Adventurer’s guild, Knight or Wizard School in the capital city Granzen can test out what is my Rank, but he guesses, I should be a D Ranker. He also mentioned Camelot’s strongest warrior now should be Sir Lancelot which is Rank B/5th Class.

 

“Well, you don’t have to be that uptight about your Rank. Not all Users are strong, most of them come into this world as an average individuals.”

 

He explained to me. Youngsters my age are normally in a knight school or wizard school and study until the age of 17. And that it’s best for me to study in one of them as I do not have any knowledge of this world.

Back to how I arrived in this world. I was curious about what were those beasts in the valleys earlier today, so I inquired about the beasts. Gawain wasn’t surprised, as he mentioned to me the Four Sky Beasts often fight each other for territories. But what I witnessed was most likely the fight of both rulers of the Blood Wyverns and Dark Serpents.

Four Sky Beasts are the Blood Wyverns, Dark Serpents, Toxic Manticores and Illusion Moths.

The bosses of each of the Sky Beasts species are at least Rank B/3rd Class, the minions are mostly High Rank C ~ Low Rank B. Adventurers and Military tend to avoid fighting with one unless necessary.

After all the talking and explaining, Gawain told me he have to continue this session another time. He asked one of the guard to arrange a place to stay for a few days. He will arrange some food and supplies for me to travel to Granzen.

 

I was guided to my temporary lodgings in one of the empty houses.

Of course it wasn’t as big as the Chief’s house. But it had all the required necessities, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and a small living room.

“Then I will leave you to rest for today, someone will be bringing dinner for you soon. So please stay here until then.”

Pale left after giving me the instructions.

I could understand their feeling of having a stranger in the village and wanting to keep track of my movement. I am famished though, having not ate any kind of food since arriving here about 6 or 7 hours. I wonder do they keep track of time here in this world..

So.. Before my food arrive, let me arrange all the information that I have gathered so far.

All beings in this world, humans, demi-humans or monsters have the Ranking system.

In Camelot, children or teenagers come of age when they turn 17. They can choose to the path of Knighthood or Wizardry, but not everyone have the talent to graduate as one.

Every few decades, “Generate” happens, bringing in “Users” like myself or “Drops” like Excalibur. Sounds like this world have some sort of game like system in place.

The other thing that intrigues me is the language here. It seems like there is an auto-translated in this world. As I was pay attention to Chief Gawain’s mouth, it doesn’t seem like his lips is speaking English, but what I hear is English.

The more I find out about this world, more questions come into my mind. If I was to survive in this world, I will need to blend in and adapt to the culture here. Find out more about each country and which country should I seek backing from.

Then there was the choice of enrolling in the one of the schools here, Knight or Wizard school. In my previous RPGs(Role Playing Game) that I always play, I would stick to using Knight. So my choice here is straightforward, but if I really have talent and get chosen as a Knight to serve this country.. Would I have the choice to reject it and leave the country?

King Arthur from my knowledge was a good king in the Arthurian Legends. I am not sure about this world though. Gawain who is one of the KotRT(Knights of the Round Table) seems to be nice enough.

Feeling exhausted from the long day, I laid down to take a quick rest.

•••

“Why can’t you be like your Sister!? She has good grades, got a great job and earning so much money now!”

“I am not her! I tried my best, but did you even care!? I don’t need you to come boss me around!”

“Then get out! Get out and never come back!”

 

With tears streaming to the side, I woke up recalling the day I left home. I falling-out with my mom over my obsessive interest in gaming, which caused my failing grades.

My mom loved to compared my sister against me.

I love my sister and hate her at the same time. She is in so many ways so much better than me, in studies, in life.. But no matter how good was I in school, it would never be enough.

 

“Your sister was top of the school at your age, your sister was top in the region when she was in high school.”

 

This caused a gap between me and my sister. A gap we could never close.

 

*Creak* The door slightly open.

“Excuse me, I have brought your dinner.”

 

It was a sweet voice of a female. I wiped my tears and sat up quickly.

 

“Please come in.”

 

A young lady came into the room. Blonde, long hair clumsily hangs over a thin, charming face. There’s something odd about her, perhaps it’s her composure or perhaps it’s simply her kindness.

 

“Hi, I am Allyssa, daughter of Gawain. Please help yourself to dinner.”

 

I was at dismay for a moment due to her beauty before responding.

 

“T-thanks, I am Jin, I am famished, don’t mind if I start eating first.”

“Sure, go ahead.”

 

Allyssa placed the tray on the dining table gracefully and swept her hair behind her ears as it fell when she bended over.

I sat at the table and began to eat my food heartily. A rye bread was served with a bowl of vegetable stew with small pieces of beef in it. A simple yet, heart-warming meal, just the kind of food I would serve to my customers. Though the seasoning is lacking, I don’t dislike the food.

I realised someone was staring at me while I eat. Allyssa was looking at me with curious eyes and noticed my reaction.

 

“Sorry! I didn’t mean to interrupt your meal. It’s just, I have never seen anyone from Zidai before.”

“I see, but I am not from Zidai though. Has your father not informed you that I am supposed to be a User?”

Allyssa gasped, “A User?! That is even more unusual.”

“Huh, why is that so?”

“Well, almost all users are protected by the country, as they are mostly Prodigies. Like the right hand man of our King is a user, although he is an exception.”

“Oh? Why is he an exception?”

 

Allyssa explain many information which aided me to understand more of this world. It seems the User that is King Arthur’s right hand man is Merlin, who is the only Rank A wizard in the kingdom. And he seem to have met King Arthur when the both of them are just children.

Also why Zidai’s people are rarely seen, was due to the war between Zidai and Camelot. Normally only Zidai’s slaves are sold in the slave market.

For decades Zidai and Camelot has been warring, due to the ideal defensive position of Camelot, Zidai was not able to gain an inch of their lands. Reason being the Blood Wyverns was resided in the West was not hostile to Camelot and some say that King Arthur has a pact with the Blood Wyverns which was mediated by Merlin.

To the south was where the Blood Wyverns and Dark serpents would contest. Just like how Blood King Gemes and Dark Queen Dhagi clashed earlier. As none of the sky beasts would want the other to have an additional Rank A to gain more territories.

It is rumored that Zidai has 2 or 3 Users in their country and it poses as a threat to Camelot, as they only have 1 User which was Merlin. But Camelot has never relied on the powers of a User except Merlin to defend themselves, which is why they show no interest in me.

But they suspected I was a spy, which is why I am being monitored. But Gawain’s strength is on equal footing with Users which is why they are not worried I would be a threat for their village. Normally Users are around the Rank of C to B, only exceptional ones like Merlin can reach Rank A. Throughout Camelot there is only 1 Rank A Wizard and the next would be Sir Lancelot who is Rank B..

 

“What about Rank S?”

“R-rank S?! Rank S only belongs to the ancient times when our ancestors are said to be strong enough to kill gods… Currently the strongest in the world right now would be Leader Sinbad from Sindra Alliance, who is Rank A/3rd Class.”

 

Allyssa spoke nervously as though if a Rank S appear in the world, the balance of the world will be toppled.

 

“So how does one find out their Rank and Class?”

“Oh, you can do it in the capital where they help you register your citizen card. Every major city has this Elder Meteorite that can sense your Rank and Class.”

 

This sounds bad, if they find out I am a Rank S, would they kill me or use me as a weapon? But I don’t think there is any choice, I just need to go through one step at a time.

 

“Ah I see, thanks for the advices, would you like to take a break and have your own dinner?”

“Oh! I’m sorry for taking up your time, I should get back and have dinner with my father now. Thank you for letting me know you better!”

 

Haha. More like thanks for your information Allyssa. She is a sweet lady, but because she is too kind, I think she gave out too much information. What if I was really a spy

After that delightful dinner, I open the front door and step out to see Pale and Mr.Muscle standing outside.

 

“Is there anything else you need? You are not supposed to leave this house until tomorrow morning when you are setting out for Granzen.”

 

Pale gave a very firm statement.

 

“I would just like to have a walk around the village and for some fresh air.”

“That will depend on Chief. We can escort you to Chief, he will be making his rounds soon.”

 

Mr.Muscle sounds much more approachable than Pale.

 

“That sounds like a good plan. Let’s go then.. But before we go, could I know what are your names? I am Jin if you guys forgot.”

“Almar, and he is Brycen.”

 

So Pale is Almar and Mr.Muscle is Brycen.

As we are walking towards Gawain’s house, the both of them are observing my every move, to make sure I don’t endanger their village.

This sure is a pioneer village, it does not have a market, just basic necessity. I can see a stall, where they distribute the farmed crops for free. Water well in the center of the village where the families takes turn to draw water from.

I hear from Brycen that this village just setted up last month and will be open to merchants soon. So they sell their crops and also post up jobs for adventurers to take up.

Jobs like exterminating of monsters nearby are given to adventurers so they will stop by and buy food and water. And with enough time, this village will grow into a proper town.

As we are approaching the chief’s house, I see Allyssa step out from the front door.

 

“Jin! What are you doing here?”

“Hi again Allyssa, I would like to have a walk around the village, but I need your father’s approval.”

 

Giving a wry smile, Allyssa shouted to Gawain, “Father! I will accompany Jin on his walk around the village, it’s fine right?”

Gawain stepped out of the house and saw me. He gave a warm smile, “Sure it’s fine.”

 

“Okay! Let’s go Jin!” Allyssa cheerfully replied and pulled my arm.

Not forgetting to give my thanks, “Thank you Chief.”

 

After Allyssa and I left…

 

“Sir, is it fine to not follow them? He is a User after all.”

 

Almar stated it in a serious tone.

 

“It’s fine, if he wanted to wreck havoc, he wouldn’t have came all the way to where I am.”

 

Part 3

“So is there any place you would like to see? Not that our village is that big either..”

“Thanks for bringing me around. I just wanted some fresh air.”

 

The both of us walk around the village. Many of the villagers are giving Allyssa a polite bow when we walked past them. There was even a moment when all the children crowded around Allyssa asking her to play.

 

“Allyssa sure is popular..”

“W-what are you talking about? My father is the chief here, of course everyone welcomes me.”

“No.. I can feel their sincere feelings for you even as an outsider. You must have been a great inspiration for them.”

“Haah.. Speaking of which, how old are you Jin? You look around the same age as me.”

“I think I am 15?”

“Think? Haha, you are amusing. I am 14 this year, next year I will be going to Granzen for my studies.”

“So you are aspiring to be a knight like your father?”

“Hehe, sure am! I will protect Camelot with my life just like my father and make Farvale a great city!”

 

Allyssa talked about the adventures of Gawain with King Arthur and his group. How they fought Minotaurs, travelled the continent to find supporters and overthrew the Mad King Gastrof.

From a distance we see a middled age woman rushed towards us.

 

“Ple-please help! My daughter..! She was abducted by Goblins!”

“Goblins!? Why are they here? Normally they don’t come near Farvale at all!”, exclaimed Allyssa.

“Show me where! I will go and help, Allyssa inform your father immediately. I will chase after the goblins.”

“But..!” Allyssa tried to stop me. But I wasn’t listening at all.

•••

Reaching the place where the girl was taken, it was at the border of the village. There was a hole in the fences. Over the fences is a dense forest, and at this time of the day, everything is pitch black.

 

“Stay here and wait for Chief Gawain to arrive, tell them I went after your daughter first and follow after my trail.”

 

I jump over the fence and went into the dark forest without hesitation. As I cannot find any tracks in the dark like this, I tried to see if I could cast a fire magic but the result was a miss. I may have to learn it somewhere before I am able to use it.

I tried to see and track the goblin’s trail in the dark and suddenly.

[Skill Tracking obtained]

[Skill Night Vision obtained]

Haaa? It seems like whenever I attempt to put in effort to do something, I can unlock a skill.

Skills:

Tracker (Level 1/10) ~ Not learned

You have 3800 skill points left

Suddenly, the dark forest became much brighter and I can even see some footsteps of the goblins. There sure are convenient skills, I counted up to 7 sets of goblin tracks. Without any time to lose, I followed the footsteps.

After following the tracks for about fifteen minutes, I reached a clearing. Ahead was a cave and at the entrance was a short fallen tree slightly covering it. By the entrance was a group of goblins standing guard, total of eight goblins.

From my experience, goblins always had been demihumans that beginner adventurers hunted. When there is only one goblin, the threat is always low. But when there is a group, only beginners will be threatened.

This may not be the case in this world, perhaps goblins are very dangerous. Or if when there is a leader, goblins will be much stronger, example in the presence of a Hobgoblin or Goblin King. My objective here is to recon for more information and if possible save the girl from here.

The goblins are all eating some kind of animal meat and drinking with uncouth manner. Will I be able to take them all out before they call for help?

No time to think.

I stealthily approach the goblins from the back, as I did not want to use the knife I got when I came to this world, I readied my hands to twist the necks of the goblins.

I lunged at them in an instant, even I was shocked at my own speed.

My hand placed on opposite sides of the goblin’s head and inter-crossed swiftly. One down, I then turned to face the other goblin.

There was no resistance when I twisted their neck. By the time I was done with the third goblin, the rest of the goblin suddenly reacted.

“Urek-” The goblin’s head fell before it could shriek.

With my fingers pointed up and formed a hand knife. Slashing at the necks of the goblins consecutively without missing a single hit.

The aftermath of the fight was 5 decapitated heads and 3 twisted heads. Swinging my hand to remove the blood, so goblins are green inside.

[Skill Unarmed Combat obtained]

You have 3790 skill points left

Let’s move on..

•••

“Father! Father!”

 

Allyssa was running as fast as she could and yelling out frantically.

 

“What happen Allyssa? What’s the problem?”

 

Gawain was in the midst of making his rounds. Serving as the chief of Farvale, he remained calm after hearing the news from Allyssa.

 

“Almar go get your wizards ready. Brycen, get the knights to move out once they are prepped.”

 

Why Gawain treated the goblin’s attack as severely was because goblins normally do not carry out such meticulous acts like stealing a child. There must have been a Goblin Lord commanding them.

Goblins by themselves are normally just Rank F creatures. But when they form a group of 8 and above, their Rank increase to E. When a Goblin Lord commands them, they rally in hundreds. A Goblin Lord is born when one goblin survived many battles and learn from it, they evolve drastically into Rank D monster.

Demihumans, monsters in this world are able to evolve once they have experienced enough battles. So if a Goblin Lord is left untouched, it will continue to evolve, thus it was necessary to eliminate it here.

 

“Allyssa, you should stay here, I will be going with the men.”

“No! Jin already went there, I need to go and help him!”

“I won’t stop you since you are Rank E, but do not go near the Goblin Lord you hear?

“Yes father.”

•••

Walking through the entrance, I smell a horrid stench coming from the depths of the tunnels. Soon enough I arrived at a crossroad, my golden rule of maze navigating is to always follow the left wall.

Turns out my path selection was true and I chanced upon a group of goblins.. Sleeping.. This should be the sleeping quarters.

I went on to stealthily kill all the goblins in their sleep. There is an unusually large of goblins sleeping, I always thought goblins are nocturnal. Unless these are just a fraction of how many goblins there are in this cave.

As I continue further into the cave, trembling could be felt from the walls. A war meeting was being carried out. The innermost chamber was decorated nicely with a small throne in the middle. That oversized goblin looks like the leader, whom I intently observe from a distance. He looks strong.

[Skill Analyse obtained]

Skills:

Analyse (Level 1/10) ~ Not learned

This is a useful skill for sure.

Without warning, a box came out on top of the leader’s head.

 

Jord (Goblin Lord): Rank D/1st

Skills:

Leadership (Level 5)

Foul Play (Level 6)

Shortsword Arts (Level 8)

 

Priority is to take that guy out of the equation. Without him, Leadership will not be active, the rest of the goblins would take a hit in their stats. There is roughly two hundred goblins here, based on what Gawain told me about strength in Ranks, a S Rank like me should have no problem. But I have to find the girl first..

I left the chamber quietly and set out to look for the girl. From a distance I heard some goblins, I sneaked towards them and found them excited. It was not a sight I wanted to find, girls, women of different ages were all imprisoned here.

Most of them were stripped bare and made to serve these goblins’ sexual desires, some were even pregnant.. I saw a girl the age of 10 or so, still wearing clothes, lying there unconscious. That must be her.. I promptly took care of all the goblins as they were not paying any attention.

Smashing all the chains, I took the cloths that were used as bedding for the women and tore it apart, using them to cover their bodies.

 

“Get out of here while you still have the chance, I will ensure your safety. A detail of troops from the nearby village should be on their way.”

 

Most of them had this look of despair and refused to move, but some of the stronger willed women dragged them along not letting them give up like this.

 

“Could you please help me bring this young girl out of here as well?” I asked one of the stronger looking women.

“Yes, I will even if you didn’t asked. What’s your name? Are you by yourself? I am Camille.”

“I am Jin, I arrived at the village Farvale just today. You look strong, please help me protect the ladies.”

“Hmm, a gentleman. As I mentioned, I planned to do it anyway. Thanks for saving us..”

“You have my thanks.”

 

After witnessing all the ladies getting out of the cave. I resolved myself to slaughter all the goblins in the cave.
