I arrived at the shed without encountering any monsters. I immediately set up the sound alarm by tying naruko on the end of the thread that I set up around the shed.
This is ‘naruko’.
With this, if an intruder were to touch the thread, the naruko inside the shed would make a clunking sound. Just to be safe, I dug 3 more pretty deep pitfall traps near the thread. I covered the trap with leaves, branches and some dirt to camouflage it with the surrounding ground.
I had a pretty productive day today so I was pretty tired. I ate some irene herbs to replenish my energy and then, I could feel my body becoming warm not long after.

After that, I grilled blue wolf steak on top of a wire mesh and ate them together with the new fruit wine I had just bought. This new fruit wine had a clear, whitish color and tasted a little bit dry.
【Bargo Fruit Wine: A fruit wine that tastes dry.】
This wine looked like white wine but it tasted slightly different and kind of strange.
Since I already had a fire going on in the simple stove, I decided to make potions and poison while I was at it.
First, potion. I boiled irene herb, berzin herb and delune fruit together. I took one small lick on the finished mixture and almost instantly, my head felt clear and my body felt warmer. I appraised the finished mixture.
【Dual Potion (medium): Can heal HP (medium), MP (medium) and vitality (medium).】

Next, I used a different pot to make the poison. I boiled gadol and badol poisonous plants together. The result was a mixture that just from a single glance alone, looked poisonous. I used appraisal on it and it only gave me ‘poison’ as a description.
With mylene detoxification potion in one hand, I mustered my courage from within and licked a single drop of that poison.
And then, my vision was spinning.and my ears were ringing. I immediately drank the detoxification potion and collapsed on the spot.
Looking at my watch, I realized I had passed out for 30 minutes. Shaking my head, I was somehow able to stand up.

I appraised the poison again.
【Gebal Poison: ：Effectivity (medium). Poison Resistance Lv 5 or higher is required to resist this poison.】
The reason I was somehow still alive must be due to the combination of my level 2 Poison Resistance, the detoxification potion and because I only took a small lick of the poison.
It was not an exaggeration to say poison resistance was extremely crucial in this world.
I soaked the arrowhead in the gebal poison and let them dry for a little while. I put the rest of the potion in the small bottle I had bought beforehand in Sarasa’s store.
I really needed to make sure I didn’t accidentally cut myself with the arrowhead. It was for this exact reason I had bought a pair of leather gloves from Margo but I was still feeling a little bit anxious about this. At least, I had to equip myself with a detoxification potion.
After that, I started working on the fire dagger. I worked on them while sipping bargo fruit wine occasionally. Polishing one dagger made from inferior iron with fire abrasive material took me more or less 10 minutes.
In an hour, I managed to make 4 fire daggers.

I kept one fire dagger for myself and the other three for sale. As for the last one ordinary dagger, I’d kept it as it was for dismantling. If I used the fire dagger to dismantle, I wouldn’t be able to drain the blood because the wound would close up not long after.
The timing was perfect though. I had just ran out of fuel for the lighter but with this fire dagger, I would be able to start a fire without the lighter.
Naturally, I was feeling very tired. I brushed my teeth then I went to sleep.
In the middle of the night, the naruko I had set up made a bunch of clunking noise. I immediately woke up and threw my futon away.
I put on my shield and grabbed my shortsword before I went outside. There, I saw two goblins had fallen into my trap.
I took out my poisonous arrow and shot them from on top of the pit.
The two goblins convulsed before they laid limp in the hole.
I pulled the two goblins out from the pit, fixed the sound alarm and camouflaged the pitfall trap again. It was already late at night so I decided to dismantle the goblin tomorrow and went back to sleep again for now.
