*Action* or *Sound*
Tch, I knew I would regret this. I have to be a child for 20 more days and I can’t level up until I’m fully grown. All my stats are halved, so I can’t really fight against monsters, and being allowed to leave the city early doesn’t really mean much if I’m weak and I have to drag one of my NPC parents along as well.. *sigh. Might as well make the best of the situation. On the upside I get free food and lodging for the whole month and maybe the reward will compensate me for all these setbacks.
After a long 10 minutes Elian finally managed to let go of Adamas, but only because her stew was boiling for too long. After Adamas was left alone to his own devices he headed straight to the stairs. Since he was too small to walk up, he had to crawl his way all the way to the top. When he finally finished climbing the 25 or so stairs he was extremely winded. It seems like he was still weak to do anything to extraneous.
Adamas was shocked by how quick he was able to gain a stamina stat point. He only had to climb some stairs! It took him a while to figure out that the weaker you are and the more extraneous activities you carry out, the easier it is to gain stat points. He tucked away his little nugget of information into the back of his thoughts and proceeded to wobble/run to the library. Opening the door was perhaps the most frustrating/infuriating task. Adamas could barely reach the doorknob and when he finally managed to touch the metal contraption he foundd himself on his butt because he was on his tiptoes for too long. After 11 tries, he finally managed to open the door.
Within the library there was only one small bookshelf with only three shelves and they were all within reach of Adamas. He counted only 12 books available. They were all as listed: Monster Encyclopedia, Magic for Noobs, Basic Swordfighting, Herbology, Elian’s Cooking Recipes, History of Alvernon, Floating Continents: Are They Real, Basic Blacksmithing, Tale of Lover’s Bond, The Hero’s of Old, Sewing and Cutting.
Adamas felt like he hit the jackpot. In any gaming world, information is always required, with it you would have a huge advantage over those who didn’t. Without it, you would be walking blind and be left behind by all the other players. Adamas took out History of Alvernon from the shelf and sat his little butt down on the floor with the book open to the first page in his tiny lap. Thankfully it was in human language, which looked perfectly like english. I wonder if this game also has an automatic language converter? He shook his head and quickly got rid of any distracting thoughts and began to read history. An hour later Adamas was still engrossed in the book when he heard his pseudo mother yelling out his name.
“Adamas!! Honey where are you!? Its time for your lunch!”
Adamas closed his book and dragged it along with him downstairs. On his way down he heard two notification chimes.
