I Become a Rogue Lord in a World Where Only I Level Up C57: Things you can obtain in someone else’s territory (20)
“Are you awake?”
“I was asleep?”
“Yeah. You slept well.”
“I’ve recovered my mana. Let’s get out of here.”
She was awake, and there was no need to drag out the time any longer. I got up quickly; I was going to use [Crush] to destroy the ceiling.
“Yurasia hold on tight to my body. No matter what happens, don’t let go.”
“That’s good. Hold on tight!”
Shortly thereafter, I activated [Crush]. Our bodies were instantly flung up above the ceiling by [Crush], finally we escaped from the trap. The light flowing from the mana formation on the ceiling greeted us.
“Wow, that’s amazing! I never thought you’d use that move like that.”
“Right? But that doesn’t mean you can’t fall in love with me, okay? Because Your Highness is not my type.”
When I said that, Yurasia angrily waved her hands.
“What are you talking about all of a sudden? You’re not my type either!”
Something is clearly different from before. She began to express her emotions.
“Your Highness. You’re drooling.”
Yurasia turned her face away with a shocked expression at my remark. Astonishment and embarrassment could be seen on her face. In the trap, she smiled for a moment, but it was too dark to see her face. I had never seen her expression change so much. After all, her face, filled with emotion, was completely different from the stiff expression she had been wearing. Up until now, I had felt like I was looking at a cute doll, but now I felt as if the doll had life in it.
“No, I don’t!”
“You’re tired and it happens. I’ve never seen that kind of expression before, but it’s pretty cute.”
“No, it’s not! Besides you said I’m not your type so this doesn’t count. It’s invalid!”
She coughed, as if she was embarrassed, and finally diverted the conversation.
“Anyway, that’s not the point right now. Let’s just go deeper.”
“Wait a minute. Let’s proceed while hitting the ground with our swords, just in case.”
Suddenly, I felt so embarrassed that I stopped her from trying to run and started moving cautiously. Soon, what appeared in front of us was a huge hall.
The floor of the hall was covered with a huge mana formation, so it was not an ordinary place. Yurasia’s ring was silent; it seemed that the only place the ring reacted was at the gate. She looked around and said.
“There’s something a little off about this place.”
“What’s weird? What do you feel?”
“The amount of mana in the air is different. It’s like the mana is very thick…….”
Does that mean there’s more mana here than in other places? I don’t know, because I can’t feel the mana.
“Isn’t having a lot of mana a good thing? It’s good for training, right?”
“Since there is so much mana, the mana you consume will be quickly recovered, but the maximum amount of mana you can collect in your body is limited by talent. Of course, even if you don’t have talent, your mana might increase after a long period of training, but there is no way that it will increase in a short period of time just because there is a lot of mana in the air…….”
Well, that’s true. Increasing the maximum amount of mana itself means an increase in martial force. It also means that the person will be able to store even more mana in the body. There is a definite difference in the maximum amount of mana that can be stored in the body of an A-class and B-class warlord.
But this time, her reaction was stranger than before. Her expression changed from moment to moment.
“Something’s wrong. The mana in……my body is shaking violently……! What?”
Yurasia stood and closed her eyes. At the same time, the huge mana formation on the floor began to glow white! Yurasia held out her hand in front of her, and then a round mass of energy glowing blue was generated on her hand. The blue mana lump was sucked into her palm, and at that moment! A change occurred in Yurasia’s ability value. Her martial force, which had been 87, increased to 89.
“You just increased your maximum mana value, right?”
“Yes. The maximum value of……has increased due to the mana entering my body. What does this mean……?”
Yurasia looked at me with quite a surprised look.
“By the way, I can’t feel any mana at all since my mana increased all of a sudden.”
This mana formation should have the effect of increasing the maximum amount of mana. It wasn’t in the game, but maybe it’s some kind of extra quest or extra perk?
Furthermore, the mana formation was still glowing; this meant that another person could increase their mana. So that means I can too. But I’m not actually using mana so, unlike Yurasia, no change occurred to me. No matter how much I stared at the system there was no change.
“What about you?”
Yurasia came up to me and I was at a loss for a response.
What about the Daitouren? Daitouren emitted a white light and it was also an item with a level. The mana formation also emitted a white light. In other words, they were part of the same family. Daitouren and the mana formation were both created by the game’s management!
Thinking that if I couldn’t do it, I couldn’t do it, so I decided to thrust Daitouren into the mana formation. Then a change occurred, Daitouren began to emit a powerful white light that resonated with the mana formation. Furthermore, the white light created countless fine particles of light that filled the space we were in.
[Daitouren is now level 2.]
[Daitouren martial force limit has been increased to 105.]
And the messages just kept coming!
[True Crush has been generated]
[Enemies with up to +5 martial force can be instantly killed or stunned.]
[Neutralizes opponent’s mana skills]
Daitouren gives me +30 to martial force for 30 minutes. However, the limit of +30 was 100 previously. This means that if I equip Daitouren when I am at 70 martial force, my martial force will become 100. However, even if my martial force reaches 71, my martial force will not reach 101, since the maximum value of my martial force is fixed at 100.
That limit of martial force has been raised by +5. In other words, if I equip the Daitouren with a 75 martial force, my martial force will be 105. Of course, in this case as well, even if my martial force reaches 76, my limit is still fixed at 105 after equipping Daitouren.
So I was fully convinced about this. However, it was unclear what the newly generated special move, neutralizing the opponent’s skills, meant.
Yurasia looked happy as she saw the white twinkling lights that filled the hall. The shimmering background made her look like a shining goddess.
I think her charm could captivate men all over the world. If she were a modern person, she could be a top star who makes a lot of money from commercials alone, even if she can’t act. Not only that, but she was also very noble. In fact, as a princess, her beauty was doubled by her nobility, which made people think that she was a flower of the highest order. Of course, she was a flower of great beauty to me as well.
This world is a reality like the game. I don’t think that unification is something that can be accomplished while being in love. So, the most important thing for me to think about now is to conquer this world. By doing that, I will be able to see the future. Will I return to my original world, or will I live in this world?
Anyway, the goddess looked curiously at the light-absorbing Daitouren, and snuggled down next to me to talk.
“It was a hundred times more awesome than me, but…….Could it be! Are you a hundred times stronger?”
She asked with an expectant look in her eyes.
“No, of course not, just a little.”
As the level of the Daitouren increased, the light of the mana formation also disappeared. So does that mean that the limit is two people? That would mean that all the mana released by the mana formation had been consumed.
Maybe there are places like this in other kingdoms. The fact that it reacted to Yurasia’s ring meant that it had been created during the time of the Ancient Kingdom, and if that was the case, it couldn’t have been created in just one place.
What if there is a facility that hides something even more amazing in a place like the ancient kingdom’s royal capital of old? If I can find such a place, I can develop not only my own abilities but also those of my vassals. In the game, I could use items to increase the abilities of my subordinates.
If that’s the case then these are all perks. Everything is related to the Ancient Kingdom. The problem is that I don’t know where they are.
Come to think of it, the Twelve Families split the Ancient Kingdom treasures. Could the treasures of the Ancient Kingdom, including Zint’s [Unnamed Sword], possibly be clues leading to places like this? Hmmm…..I have no idea.
It was Yurasia’s ring that found this facility. The pendant used to enter the gold vault in the basement of the Aintorian castle didn’t show any reaction. So it must mean that the facilities in the lord’s castle were not made during the time of the ancient kingdom.
The gold was collected after the fall of the Ancient Kingdom by the descendants, who wanted to recreate the glory of the Ancient Kingdom. So the only thing that can find such a place and get inside is the ring of Yurasia for now.
“Yurasia. That ring…….Can I borrow it sometime?”
“Of course I can lend it to you.”
