(338) Wish Peak
We travelled by riding on the wyvern Pochi’s back.
“Look, Elize. The sunset is dazzling.”
“That’s true, Jofre. The glow looks lonely.”
Jofre and Elize commented as they looked in the direction of the eastern sky – – the direction we were heading toward. Those two were in high spirits when they first hopped on Pochi’s back but before we knew it, they had fallen asleep before sunset. And just moments ago – – they woke up when the sun was rising,
I should at least inform them that it was morning.
“I see, so it’s morning! No wonder it was so dazzling.”
“That’s true. It’s a joyful glow!”
Their reactions were pretty much the same.
Suzuki smiled bitterly but it didn’t seem like he planned to join in the conversation.
Hey, don’t dump the two idiots on me.
I was sure I was making a bitter expression at that moment.
… I suddenly recalled the Wool Worms I defeated n Belasra and felt that I don’t want to try eating insects in this Otherworld. Though even in Japan Miri was the only one with an appetite for insects. (TL: In Japanese, the saying ‘Make a bitter expression’ is written as ‘Chewing on a bitter bug’)
“You three, it’s about time we take a break. Pochi looks like it wants to sleep.”
Suzuki said and steered toward the peak of a rocky mountain about as large as Mount Takao. (TL: 599m tall)
I was using Stamina Heal during the flight to recover its stamina but I guess it could not dispel sleepiness.
After landing on top of the rocky mountain, the wyvern ensured that all of us had disembarked before it gave a big yawn and closed its eyes. Suzuki gently pat its face.
“Well then, I guess we should rest too.”
“Yeah – – I naturally couldn’t sleep that high up.”
That was not a place to sleep, contrary to Jofre and Elize who could do so with just a lifeline attached.
With these three people around, our items probably won’t get stolen while we sleep.
“Jofre, Elize. You guys are so energetic so could you keep watch?”
“Sure, leave it to us.”
“Yup, leave it to us!”
““We’ll ride the mud boat!””
They said the same thing at Belasra too.
It was probably an inside joke between them but I was worried.
“ … Hn? Suzuki. I didn’t notice from the air but there seems to be a checkpoint there. What is that?”
While preparing my bed, I noticed something that looked like a checkpoint on the road located on the plains to the east.
“Ah, that is the border. The Shiraraki Kingdom domain spans until here. Beyond that will be Tsuaobal.”
“Eh? We had not reached Tsuaobal yet? I thought you mentioned that it was directly east.”
“That’s because we took quite a detour. It is forbidden to fly above Lake Altal and the area around Kyupilas Hill where the Great Cathedral is.”
“I see – -“
I looked to the south but I could not see Kyupilas Hill.
“Now that you mention it, Daijiro-san commented on that too. That it was a hassle to intentionally apply stealth camouflage such that she would not be detected from the ground.”
“She said 『Damn Pope, creating such annoying laws. Just who do you think recovered that hill from the Demon Lord? X X X X, X X X X. 』”
Elize said broadcast censor-worthy words back-to-back. She probably didn’t know what they meant.
That said, Daijiro-san was amazing. Rather than change her flight path, she flew without getting detected instead.
Somehow my image of her crumbles whenever I hear anything about her. Well, my first impression was that she was a guy so my image was very wrong from the start even before it crumbled.
“Eh? This is – -“
Suzuki found a strange stone monument.
“These are called Krokki stones and are stone monuments found throughout the world. The Adventurer Krokki left them behind to mark his steps. So this is the place called Wish Peak.”
“Erm, it is said that if you do divination at the peak, it will come true.”
“Oh, that sounds interesting.”
Divination … huh.
The effects that appear from using the Blacksmithing Random skill is divination as well … no, I shouldn’t. After all, it was time to sleep and blacksmithing now would interfere with Pochi’s rest.
Oh, that’s right.
Don’t I have a much quicker method?
Job Seeking skill.
It will randomly display five jobs and I will be able to take on one of it as my job for 24 hours. However, my other jobs aside from the selected job would not level up.
That’s pretty much divination.
Having just one good job would definitely help when I rescue Miri.
If only bad jobs show up … I’ll think about it when the time comes.
I used the Job Seeking skill.
|· Please choose the job you wish to switch to|
(If none are selected, one will be automatically selected after five minutes)
Magic Investigation Lab Member: Lv1
Wait a minute! I almost unconsciously shouted.
Were Alpinist and Alchemist chosen purely because they sound similar? And in fact, isn’t Alchemist just the English equivalent of Alchemist? (TL: The Alchemist Ichinojo has is written in Kanji, the Alchemist listed here is written in Katakana.)
And also, Gigolo – – not you again! I won’t become a gigolo.
And especially the last Unemployed, what is with that!
People searching for a job while jobless are called Unemployed but isn’t it the same as Jobless?
“Hey, Suzuki. This is a random topic but have you heard of the job called Unemployed?”
“That’s really sudden. Yeah, I have.”
“You know about it?”
“The job system in this world is managed by the Goddess-samas but there are new jobs created and lost. So in cases where the jobs are lost due to circumstances from the Goddess-samas, the people who had that job would switch to Unemployed for – – 3 years I think, and would find it easier to change to a new job.”
“Ah, so it is different from Jobless.”
“Completely different. The Unemployed boast slightly higher status values compared to before they lost their jobs and jobs are unlocked according to the level of their previous job. And after changing jobs, their experience points continue from that they accumulate in their previous job.”
I see. So when I become Unemployed from Jobless, I will unlock jobs according to my Jobless level?
It would be terrifying if I actually unlock Gigolo if I do that.
“Then what about Magic Investigation Lab Member?”
“It’s similar to the scientific investigational laboratory members in Japan. To put it simply, they identify fingerprints and DNA, find out height and weight from footprints and determine the presence of disease. They have increased Appraisal-type skills. Although they have skills that can only be used with their specialty tools, they have many other useful skills. That said, the job change examination is quite tough. I had quite a hard time.”
“You’ve unlocked it!?”
I forgot. This guy was quite a smart one.
“Yup. Well, it has many skills required for a doctor’s medical examination. There might come one day that I can return to Japan and while I do not know if the skills here can be used in that world, I thought that I should learn them. But I didn’t level it up though.”
Suzuki said in self-mockery.
I don’t know if he can return to Japan but don’t worry Suzuki.
The skills learned here can be used in Japan as well.
My younger sister – – Miri seemed to be able to use skills in Japan after all.
Nevertheless, I see. Appraisal-type huh?
To not miss any of Miri’s traces – – it might not be a bad idea to have the skills acquired from Magic Investigation Lab Member. Or rather, it will be good.
Once I knew that, there was no need to choose the other jobs.
【The first job has been set as Magic Investigation Lab Member】
Although, even if I selected this job, there would be no meaning if I don’t gain any experience points. I wonder if monsters will appear?
“ … Hn?”
Just as I was setting the job, I noticed the presence.
A slight moment later, Suzuki stood up and drew his sword.
“What’s going on?”
Jofre and Elize who were on lookout asked.
The two of them didn’t notice – – that we were gradually getting surrounded.
“Yeah … this seems to be their nest.”
They had suddenly formed.
It was no wonder that Jofre and Elize didn’t realize.
The monsters that formed as if surrounding us seemed like rocks from the mountain.
It looked like this was their nest.
“Rock Golems. Kusunoki-kun, unfortunately these golems do not have the letter ‘e’.”
“Even if there were or weren’t any, it didn’t change that they died.” (TL: Anyone has any idea what golem they are talking about.)
I see, Wish Peak.
It seemed that it granted both of my wishes.
