make it easier to fight, but the dragon will have more HP and do more damage.
But if you fought in the sky with unstable footing, then it would hold back a little.
So that was why I was able to win against such a powerful looking dragon.

“Still, it is hard to believe! Because fighting in the air would still be harder than fighting on land, wouldn’t it!? To think that you were able to finish that trial…”

“Well, it was a combination of luck, ability and range.
So, if I take the necessary steps, will I be able to fight the Bluesea Dragon on land?”

You would still need to fight it in the water.
What the Bluesea Dragon demands from challengers is ‘sincerity.’ But all that means is that if it sees that you are sincere, it will stop being angry and go back to its usual strength.
And that is not something you can beat in your current state.”

I had been able to beat the Windcloud Dragon because my arrows did extra damage to flying creatures.
But in my current state, my attacks were going to do significantly less damage instead.
It was a joke.

“Oh, I seem to have gone off track there.
Back to the main subject.”

The conversation we had just had was only for players who had killed a dragon in the past.
NSO had a lot of detail put into such things.

“You… Don’t you want to learn ‘Bow Arts’ that will work underwater?”

“Can I?”

“Yes! However, you will need to overcome many trials first! Now, I will give you this card!”

“It’s…a Grow Card!”

It read (Sea Bow Art – Form Zero)…!
I did not expect to get one so quickly…!

“There are 7 forms for Sea Bow Arts! Just like the seven seas! Seven forms that are the power of life in the sea!”


When it came to special attacks with a bow, I thought there were just fast arrows, rapid fire arrows, and shooting like rain.
But there were seven when based on creatures of the sea…
I was very interested in this.
How did they come up with them?
What if they were all similar, with just slight differences?

“Yes, I would very much like to acquire these Sea Bow Arts.”

“Of course, you do! Of course, you do! First, you must equip that card.”

And so I set the card in my equipment slot.

It didn’t change my appearance at all.

“Good! Every time you complete a trial, you will gain a new form, and the card will be overwritten.

“Hunt down a monster?”

“No, you won’t be able to do it.
Your body is too weak right now.”


That’s right, there is the penalty for dying after being killed by the Bluesea Dragon.
My status had decreased by nearly 70%.
It would slowly return to normal, but take a whole day to go back completely.
I couldn’t fight like this…

“Don’t worry.
The first trial will be easy, even for someone in your state.
Even someone weaker than you could do it.”

And then the sage pulled out a fishing rod from nowhere and handed it to me.
The sea and a fishing rod…well, it was obvious what I would be doing.

“Fishing! You will fish! You must catch a fish that is larger than the size that I decide, and you will pass! And you will acquire Sea Bow Art – Form One!”

So there it was.
A mini game.
It was one of the most common types of mini games.
Usually, they were quite simple.
You just had to push a button at the right time.
But in some games, there were a large variety of fish, or they sold for a high price, and you could end up spending a lot of time on it.

However, this was NSO.
What kind of ‘fishing’ would await me here…?
