Accompanied by Miss Vila Yurina-san and I headed to the practice hall located in the guild. Of course, it was to learn skill by using guild points we had acquired as a reward from subjugating monsters. Yurina-san used 50 guild points and her beginner’s perk in order to learn 2 weapon skills. As for me, I decided to acquire 3 basic magic skills, fire, water and earth. Each one of them cost 150 guild points so in total I had to use 450 guild points. Based on what I knew, those three were the only magic attribute I hadn’t learned yet.
We mustn’t underestimate basic level magic skill. After all, wind and light magic were very useful during battle. No matter how crappy a magic skill looked at the first glance, it all depended on how you utilize it.
When we arrived at the training ground under the guidance of Vila-san, we were introduced to Miranda, a woman with large-built who had a job called Battle Master, one who could handle all weapons with ease. And there was also a guy called Nahar waiting for us. He had a hook nose and a pointy hat covering his white hair.
Miranda-san grabbed Yurina-san’s slingshot, nodded her head multiple times before she suddenly faced the target and threw a stone with the slingshot while using some sort of skill.
“Please take care of me.”
I said to Nahar-san and then he started to teach me the basic magic skills I had chosen beforehand.
I glanced at Yurina-san to see how she was holding up and it looked like she was receiving various guidance from Miranda-san. Apparently a slingshot was a known weapon in this world too. Yurina-san learned ‘Eagle Eye’, a skill that improved the accuracy of the bullet and she would be learning ‘Eagle Shot’, a skill that increased the speed and distance of the bullet too.
Now now, let’s see how it goes.
First, under the guidance of Nahar-san, I learned a beginner level fire support magic skill called ‘Burning Muscle’. I was told that there were various basic fire magic skills including the type that allowed you to shoot out fire but since I had Hellfire Sword in hand, I decided to learn another type of fire magic skill instead. So there you have it. Although, there was one problem…
Nahar-san shouted the skill name,’Burning Muscle’, while making a pretty sweltering pose. I was told to copy him and if I mumbled the skill name or half-assed the pose, I would get scolded by Nahar-san.
Also, with wind and light attributes, magic was basically the manifestation of image and interfering with the law of physics in physical space. Vocalization of the spell name was not necessary to be spoken in Lancaster language. In fact, it was easier for me to visualize the magic invocation by using Japanese language instead.
Damn it… It can’t be helped then….
After making sure Yurina-san was engrossed with her own training and not looking my way, I decided to shout out the skill name while striking the pose.
This pose is definitely unnecessary….
Hm? U-UWOHHH!! My body is brimming with power!
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Burning Muscle Level 1. Strength+3, HP+3.』
Just like usual, a terminal screen like a touch panel appeared before me, along with the sound of a mechanical sounding voice.
T/N: Ughhhh I also dont want to strike a cringey pose in the middle of a battle like Louis Armstrong
