Chapter 10 : Item
Thus, I decided to examine each item that was given to me by Lunaire with this 《Akashic Record》.
Firstly,……. I tried to open 《Akashic Record》 while holding the Red Crystal Choker.
【Inquiry of the magic King】《Value ：Legend Tier》
This choker has sealed within it the soul of a great king who once united war-torn countries with his magic.
The magic King’s Heart of Pursuit: the king who abandoned everything for magic. His desire was relentless to the point where he was completely unaware that he’d turned into a mere ornament.
Has the effect of: deepening the understanding of the wearer in learning elementary magic.
…. I looked at the Red Crystal Choker.
For some reason, I could see something that resembled a white smoke inside of it.
T-This item was… safe to wear, right?
It won’t suddenly hijack my consciousness, right?
No, it shouldn’t be a problem since this is an item given by Lunaire.
Though Lunaire did tell me that she’d teach me some magic, this item made it far easier.
I strapped the 《Inquiry of the magic King》 around my neck and took the silver ring next.
It was an ominous ring that had the pattern of a two-headed snake coiling around it.
For some reason, this pattern tickled my Chuunibyou side.
[TL : Middle school grade student who has contracted the delusional sickness, Chuunibyou]
I opened the 《Akashic Record》 after poking the head of the snakes with my finger.
【Ouroboros Ring】《Value ：Legend Tier》
A mere shadow of a giant two-headed snake who set ablaze a great empire with its dark flame in an ancient era.
It was cursed, it shrank further in size and petrified, reduced to its current form due to its characteristic immortality.
The immortal curse still spilled from inside of the ring even now.
It’d revive the wearer, if the wearer died, by consuming the wearer’s mana.
「HYIII! T-This ring is actually safe to wear right! ? 」
I, who had unintentionally gotten scared of that ring, asked for Lunaire’s confirmation.
「Yes, it’s safe. Since the consumption of mana is dependent on the wearer’s level, your life should be safe by wearing it. Invoking it many times in succession might take a toll on your mana tank though.」
N-No, I don’t mean to ask about that, what I wanted to ask is whether it’s really safe for me to hold onto this monster… albeit, in its petrified state.
N-No, there’s no way she will give me a dangerous item.
Let’s wear this one too.
And lastly, I took the simple sword I got from Lunaire.
…. Thank goodness it wasn’t a heavy one. Even someone as weak as me could hold it properly.
It was neither too long nor too short. It’s user-friendly too.
It looked like an ordinary sword but, there’s a purple crystal buried in its hilt.
【The Fool’s magic Sword】《Value ：Legend Tier》
A magic sword bestowed by God upon a hero who was summoned to this world.
Thanks to the crystal of a higher realm that was buried inside its hilt, this sword was powerful yet light that even a low-level person could lift it.
Its first owner was assassinated within the half-year after he came to this world.
OOOH! There was a beginner-friendly weapon like this too.
But, 《The Fool’s Magic Sword》… when I looked into its description, it seemed the former owner of this sword was the same as me, a summoned person.
And guessing from its name….
He might be a summoned human who became an entertainment for those Gods, given this magic weapon for the sake of Nyarlhotep’s show and killed when he became too negligent.
… If those guys are still monitoring me and realize that I’ve somehow survived, will they spare my life?
「You seem to be able to use it without any problems.」
Said Lunaire as if she felt relieved.
It seemed she was also worrying over the matter about whether or not the weapon given by her was useless.
But then, I never expected that weight was in proportion with the performance of the weapon in this world.
…. I understand that to reproduce the game system in life, in which the goal was to unceasingly raise the offensive power, adding weight to the weapon was the best way.
「Uhm….. Is there some sort of requirement for equipping a weapon? 」
「Requirement? You should be able to handle a weapon as long as your parameters are higher than the weapon’s minimum value.」
I see… I had checked before, my parameters were all a mere 1 ……
Thus, it’s natural that I couldn’t lift Lunaire’s treasured sword from before.
Thus, now I am equipped with 《Inquiry of the Magic King》 on my neck, 《Ouroboros Ring》 on my finger, and 《The Fool’s magic Sword》.
When I tried to check my status again with 《Status Check》:
Race : Human
Special Skill ：
《Rookroa Language Comprehension[Lv:–]》
Common Skill ：
The equipped weapon wasn’t shown in my status, but I could see the change affected by equipping it.
W-Wow… such a terrifying status was entirely dependent on my equipment.
But then, I might be able to inflict some damage to higher-level opponents with this status.
「It seems you’re completely prepared now. Let’s start with the real training immediately」
Though I replied to her, Lunaire kept her silence as if she was waiting for me to continue my words.
W-… What is she waiting for?
N-No way, something that I can do is….
「B-Best regards, Master! 」
Lunaire then left the small hut after she gave a satisfied nod.
I-I see now, she… wanted to be called “Master”, huh.
