Chapter 7 – New Skill

James is sweating a lot, he did not expect that the realism of the game is almost 100%, except for the pain.

James almost felt like he was not inside the game but in an alternative reality world, if it wasn’t for the constant barrage of messages, keeping him tabs on his satiety and the stats he earned while cutting 50 trees.

James: “Whew, finally!”

James had finally collected 100pc of logs from cutting 50 trees, it seems that 1 tree gives 2 logs.

It took him a  10 long hours to do the task given to him by Marvin. Well I guess James did not even knew that it took him that long, since he had fun cutting those un-moving trees.

It was not that boring, since the constant popup of windows made James feel satisfied. Every time a window appear in front of him, informing him about the stats he acquired from the constant hacking and chopping. James felt like all the time he spent cutting trees for 100logs were all worth it, he had fun, he gained some stats and he would receive a reward from the old man Marvin.

James: “Gramps! I am back, and I have all the logs with me”

James happily returned to old man Marvin, he did not care that he was  alone in the middle of a cottage within the forest. He also did not care that all the other players were now going to their own respective cities. All he care was that, he had fun, and it was all worth it for him.

Marvin: “Oh? That was fast, even though your special, I thought it would take you a day or two to finish.”

Old man Marvin is impress on how fast James manage to gather 100 pieces of logs, normally a newbie players who’s also a level one would take at most a week to gather all 100 pieces of logs, and Marvin also knew that all players like James only has 10 wheat bread in them, he  knows that continuously hitting trees would consume a lot of stamina, and 10 pieces of wheat bread is surely not enough to refill all the diminished stamina.

James: “Hehe, my grandpa Clain though me the proper way to cut trees.”

Upon hearing James claim, this old man could not help but feel astonished. He wanted to meet this grandpa Clain that James keep speaking about. But he was mostly impress by James, since even though knowing the proper way to cut trees would help the cutting process easier it does not mean that collecting 100 pieces of logs in a span of 10 hours was an easy task. Only those people who is patient and hardworking would be able to do the task with efficient result.

Marvin: (hoho, this kid sure is a one of a kind, not only is he smart, hard working, handsome, but he also has the patience to back all his positive characteristic. But  I feel like he also lack a sense of awareness around him.)

Marvin: “Good, good, here is your reward James, I hope it will help you on your journey”

Ding!
You have successfully completed the task that Marvin has given to you.

Ding!

+Log pouch

James: “hehe thanks a lot gramps”

James made a smile which would have gotten a lot of attention if there were females around, but pity that he was alone with the old man  in the middle of the forest.

James immediately checked his newly acquired skill book, upon checking, James was very thrilled that he finally acquired his very first skill, since he was a newbie at games, James did not  even know that what he acquired was a skill that would make him the center of envy and jealousy in the eyes of other players
.

Upon seeing James sudden change of expression, old man Marvin panicked.

Marvin: (Huh? Why did his  expression suddenly turned sad? Is the skill that I gave to him not to his liking?)

Marvin: “W-what’s wrong James? I-Is the skill that I gave you not good enough?”

James: “A-ah…N-no…It’s just that, I thought I would get a skill that I could cast…..”

Marvin heave a sigh of relief, he thought about the skill that he gave James was not to his liking, but he also guessed that James had wanted to earn a skill that he could cast.

Marvin: “Hoho, is that all you’re worrying about? Well, here’s another skill, I think you’re worthy enough to earn two skill from me, hohohoho”

Ding!
Do you want to learn Marvin’s unique attack enhancement skill? [Rank S] Mana Channel.

James immediately said yes.

James was thrilled for receiving another skill, with a smile that could bewitch any woman, James sincerly thanked the old man and went to a nearby tree to test his new skill.

James: “Let’s see…maybe I should charge my weapon first with 10 mana.”

James lifted his hatchet, sending 10 mana to it, then he hack the tree.

*slice*

The tree was cut clean in two like a butter.

James: “Hehehe, gramps this skill is pretty useful, now I could cut trees with no effort hehehe”

Marvin:”……”

Marvin did not know whether to laugh or cry, who would have known that James showed his happiest expression when he had cut down the tree using his newly acquired skill…

Marvin: (…well, no worries….he would use it properly sooner or later anyway…..probably.)

Marvin wasn’t sure whether James would use the skill he had given him properly, or he would use it just to do some miscellaneous things.

Marvin: “So? What do you  plan on doing now James?”

James: “Umm…I don’t know….”

Marvin: “I see, well…how about you stay here for a while James? I might need your help on something, and at the same time, I would teach you the uses of those logs that you collected.“

James: “Ok gramps.”

James stayed at the tutorial Island for a bit longer. Well it’s not like he was in a rush or anything,  he even learned some  skills while having fun cutting trees.

Marvin explained to James the uses of the logs that he had collected. It seems like  there are different kind of trees with different kinds attributes, they also varied from common, uncommon, rare, unique and legendary.  The higher the rank of a tree, the harder it is to find, some trees were even guarded by dangerous beast. And some were worship like a god, take Yggdrasil for example.

James: “Gramps, about the fletching that you told me about…”

James became interested in fletching after old man Marvin told him about it.

Fletching involves the making of bows and arrows. The products of this skill are primarily by those people who wants to use a bow. Marvin also explained to James that, if he so ever learn about fletching ,then it would benefit him greatly, since his hobby is cutting trees, why not make fletching his 2nd hobby..

Fletching requires various items, depending on what the player wishes to create. These items are relatively universal, with a slight differences based on exactly what is being made. All sorts of fletching require logs, a knife and a type of ore for the tip.

Marvin: “Oho? You are interested in using a bow James?”

James: “Well…I don’t know…but I guess I am a little bit interested, fletching those tree logs seems fun, and I am also interested about mining.”

Marvin: “Well you know what James, the arrows sold by the merchants are just normal arrows, and you would be the very first person who I would teach about fletching. James, Imagine how fun it is to create different types if arrow with different types of quirk to it. For example, exploding arrow.”

James: “What! Exploding arrows!”

James eyes sparkled like a little kid and eyed Marvin as if assessing whether he was lying or not.

Marvin: “hohoho of course, it’s not that hard to make, all you need is a tree log and a special type of ore and some feathers.”

James: “C-cool! Gramps can I learn about fletching from you?”

Marvin: “Hoho, of course you can, and don’t be too excited yet James, fletching might be easy if you just wanted to create regular arrows, but if you want to create unique ones, you need to find some specific logs and ores which are mainly located at dangerous areas with dangerous beast. Are you up to it James?”

James: “Of course!”

Marvin explained to James the process on how to make a bow and arrow through fletching.
Marvin also told James that, the rarer the materials he used, the stronger arrow he would produce.

Marvin: “Oh and one more thing James, keep the fletching skill a secret, because other travelers(players) like you might get jealous and annoy you to death, especially those travelers who specialize with bows”

James: “May I ask why gramps?”

Marvin: “Well to tell you the truth James, fletching can only be learned from me, and I don’t want them to bother me.”

James: “Is fletching really that good gramps?”

Marvin: “Really that good? Ha, it’s one of the best skill there is James. And you will be the envy of those travelers, they might kill you just to get a hold of the unique arrows that you fletch. Since I bet all the arrows that they have are all common and regular ones hohoho.”

James: “I-I see.”

Marvin: “Well? What are you waiting for? Go to that miner trainer and come back here with an ore, so that I could finally teach you how to fletch.

James: “R-right away gramps”

James then immediately left in a hurry towards the mining site in order to grab some ores.
