Blacksmith of the Apocalypse

Chapter 66: Experimenting

”You know… ”,Fin whispered in his ear, ”maybe you could register it as a pet once you reach lv.20? ”

” ”What? ” ”, Seth and Cerno Bolk said at the same time. The giant boss and an unbelievable fine sense of hearing.

”A pet, really? ”

”What do you mean a pet? I will let you know; all offspring inherit the memories of their parent! Don´t think you could treat the child like an animal! ”, Cerno said indignantly.

”Oh! No! That ’s not how it works! ”, Fin said hurriedly, waving her arms around in a panic.

”It´s like an… errm…partner system? It only works when both parties agree and can also be broken up at any time, with one disagrees strongly. ”

She explained about the Pet System to Cerno Bolk. It was a contract that only worked when both parties were willing. It would allow the pet and the player to share experience and create a pet space where the pet could rest or enter so it did not cause a scene in a city for example.

Cerno was slowly being convinced. If their offspring could see the sun, he would even allow them to enter this alien system.

Seth on the other hand still was not sure. A pet that spits uncommon metal thread might be really cool. And the Ivicer probably was a really strong race, as the direct creations of a god. Weren´t they like angels of this world? They also were –not ugly.

But was it too much for a simple man to dream of a cool pet? The stereotype would be riding a wolf or a lion, right? Or maybe even a ground dragon, if those existed somewhere?

Looking at the sparkling cocoon in his hand. It was soft and he felt a soothing warmth from it.

~please~ he heard a tiny voice in the bag of his mind.

Well, at least it would be a very unique partner. Seth embraced the cocoon a little tighter. With this, all parties agreed.

”That only leaves one matter to be dealt with. I still need to reach lv. 20 to unlock this pet system! ”

”Oh, that ’s easy. Don´t you just need to kill a lot of monsters? ”

With this Seth came into the grotesque situation that a dungeon master kept summoning easy targets to power-level him! He just had to stand there and strike down skeleton mages with his sword. Why the sword? Thanks to its effect of increased damage to targets with lower strength, he could easily one-shot the skeleton mages. It was simply faster than the mace.

Skeleton mages gave more experience than archers or warriors, so they still gave 0,5% on lv.19, if he killed them alone. Which meant he used a little more than an hour to non-stop kill 200 mobs and finally reach lv.20!

He was all sweaty and his arm felt heavy, but the fatigue vanished when he took a look at his status. Just like Fin had said, there was a new tab in his status window that said Pets. It was actually split into pets and mounts and he had 1 slot in each of them! He also took a look at his status.

! He finally got a skill that explained his class!


He could directly turn souls into equipment and even fuse it into already finished weapons! He could also wear a second layer of armor just like that! It was also the first skill that actually needed a specific tool. Seth felt that it made sense, that a blacksmith should make and use his own tool at some point.

He was completely caught in the system options, so Cerno Bolk and Fin could only watch him gesturing in the air as he interacted with his menus.

A growth item! And he didn ’t need to go and gain experience with it, but just feed it materials! but now wasn´t the time. Seth forced himself to turn his attention back to the giant Ivicer, the small cocoon, and the even smaller Fin.

”Ah, hehe, sorry. It worked. I unlocked the pet system. ”

Seth did not plan to over-level, nor did he feel like slaughters mobs for several hours. So, this concluded their little power-level session. The two said farewell to Cerno and left with the small cocoon. Today they had probably learned many secrets of this world few natives could ever imagine, but to them, it was not much more than a nice fairy tale.

So, what if there were world-ending powers in this world that needed God to intervene? It wasn´t urgent or their world. in the worst-case scenario, they would take the risk of porting back to Urth or the Fairy World.

Seth grew attached to the little cocoon, thinking about the possibilities his new skill and the little Ivicer gave him. Wouldn´t he be able to make scary strong items if he managed to connect all the skills he had? If he could layer the effects of soul armaments, soul infusion, and different enchantments?

These were all thoughts for the future when he got his hands on all kinds of enchantments!

He didn´t fantasize for long. There was no need to care much about the map on their way down, but on the way up he needed to concentrate to find the right way back.

After another two times of sleeping in the dungeon, they finally reached the surface. They hissed like vampires when the bright sunshine fell into their eyes! The dampness and heat of the air hit them like a wall when compared to the pleasant cave environment.

”Maybe we should stay a little longer in the cave, until night time maybe? ”, Fin who suffered more than Seth under the heat, suggested.
