“Does this world have skills and stats?”
It didn’t originally, but since I found them amusing in a book I read, I had a god assigned to work on them.
And so you, Shinichi, will be given just one skill.”
They had the power to change worlds…it was scary how influential light novels could be…
So, just one.
I would have to think about this carefully then.
“Will I be able to choose the skill? Also, will I have any other basic abilities aside from the skill? Some kind of transfer bonus? Also, will I be able to speak the same language as the inhabitants of this world?”
“You may choose the skill.
As for your basic abilities, it will be based on the average for humans that are 46 years of age, and your own qualities.
As for a transfer bonus, the ability to choose your skill is a tremendous bonus in itself.
While you will not speak the same language, you will be given Eralt Lv1, which is the main language of humans.”
Oh, so I will be able to talk to them.
“When transfering to other worlds, ‘Appraisal’ and ‘Storage’ are usually part of the basics… Also, maybe you can make me 17 as a special service and…”
“Appraisal and Storage both require ultra powerful skills.
Furthermore, we do not offer such special services.”
Well, she had read enough light novels to start changing the world, so she understood all about basic skills and cheat abilities.
However, what was a 46 year old man supposed to do in another world? I would just bumble around and before I knew it I would be a senior citizen.
Actually, I was not likely to even live that long.
Surely there must be some way to keep myself from dying.
“Are there any skills for immortality?”
“There is one for never dying and one for never aging.”
Ah! So close! I could escape death with the first one, but if things went wrong, I might have to continue living forever as a wrinkled old man.
That was something that I wanted to avoid.
But with a skill that prevented aging, I could buy time.
There might be problems if you wanted to live with people in society, but it was still worth considering.
Either that, or I could use a powerful combat skill to survive and create a place to live.
Or perhaps I should get a skill more related to survival ability.
“Are there any skills that allow you to steal or copy other skills? Also, are there ways to acquire additional skills later on?”
“Acquiring skills from other people is against the skill system.
Skills can be acquired later on through jobs, training, experience, aptitude, etcetera.”
So you couldn’t steal them.
But you could acquire them.
So it would be a terrible waste to get something like alchemy or smithing if you could get them later on.
So maybe the unaging one was the best…
However, if I’m being honest, starting something new at this age was quite difficult.
My body didn’t move like it used to, and every time I was transferred to a new location at work, I had trouble relearning my job.
If only I was just a little younger…
“Is there a skill that makes you younger?”
“There is not… But it is possible to create skills that do not interfere with the established skill system.”
Ohh! I can do it! The dream of humanity! My apologies to all the women in the world! I just found something better than an unaging skill!
“Alright, give me that skill!”
Well then, Shinichi.
As there is no kanji in the other world, your name will be written as ‘Shinichi Saitou’ on your status.
Will you keep it that way?”
A Japanese sounding name would make me stick out in another world.
Besides, it might get troublesome to have such a family name if I ever get involved with nobles.
So I’ll change it to a name I once used in an RPG a long time ago.
“Change my name to ‘Ajifu.’”
Ajifurai is the best(fried mackerel).
It’s not up for discussion.
Am I sure that I want that to be my name? Yes, I am(certain).
“Very well, Saitou Shinichi, now known as Ajifu.
Your status has been set.”
“And how can I look at my status?”
“Say ‘Status open.’ You can say it out loud or just think it, but…”
…? Nothing happened?
“…But, this place is out of bounds for the status system, so you will have to wait until you are on location.”
I had even posed for it, but it was a swing and a miss.
It was quite embarrassing.
It showed how important it was to listen until the speaker was finished.
In any case, let’s go to this world and check it out!
I will do it there.”
“Then you will be sent on your way.
Are you ready?”
“Yes! Thank you!”
“I hope that your life in another world will be a pleasant one, Mister Ajifu.”
Said the light, and then it started to grow brighter until my vision was filled with white…
