OVRMMO 095: Jostled in the Stagecoach

Jostled in the Stagecoach

Earth boarded the newly debuted stagecoaches and carefreely had fun watching the scenery.
To try riding the stagecoaches that came out in the patch some time after the Fairy Country expansion was implemented, there was that motive as well.
The destination of this stagecoach is the East Fortresstown; the fare is high at 4,000Glo, but moving at high speeds and avoiding conflicts with monsters are huge merits.

“Hey, you, got a minute?”

The stagecoaches are public transportation, so of course riding it with someone else comes up more than often enough; aside from Earth, there are two other people riding with him.
It’s the man from the guy-girl couple that’s riding together that spoke up.

“You that Earth-san with all the nicknames?”

Even so, my usual writing style has…

Extra Edition; In Front of the Coliseum

At long last, the PvP tournament of the 20 Liberators has drawn near to the day after tomorrow.
In front of the coliseum made in Nexia, a large amount of people were enveloped in a frenzied atmosphere; as for why

“The cutoff for purchasing admission tickets, as well as betting tickets, is close at had, so those who want them should hurry up!”

The NPC vendor girl advertised with a loud, authoritative voice.
The admission tickets are self explanatory, but as for the betting tickets, you buy the ticket of whichever party you think will win as a bet; the entire sum of money used to buy betting tickets will be split amongst all the possessors of the winning betting ticket.

144:This is sudden, but aren’t there a lot events recently?

OVRMMO 094: The Ideal Existence, the Ideal Place

A dragon as a pet? That’s oppression, you know!?

The Ideal Existence, the Ideal Place

Before I knew it, the chibi dragon had *snore snore* fallen asleep.
In the first place, it had just been born, but on top of eating all that meat, it even ate the soup; a dragon’s appetite is pretty amazing as well, na.
I’m kind of at the point where I’d like to continue like this and go on a journey together with it, but … this is a matter where my hopes should not be fulfilled, na…

“Queen, my bad, but can you come over for a bit? If you do come, I’d like you to come quietly.”

I really don’t like making debts, but this time it’s the best solution.
A dragon that should not originally be here whose existence here is an exception to the norm; it’s not a situation that I can let drag on.

“Yes yes, responding to your call, it’s your partner in love, Queen-chan♪.”

She’s pissing me off quite a bit, but I have to be patient here.

“Sorry, but it’s an emergency … first off, take a look at this child.” (more…)

OVRMMO 093: Entering the Fairy Country…?

Entering the Fairy Country…?

Before heading to the Fairy Country, I dropped by the mine and wood harvesting area for just a bit.
Since I was happily able to strike upon a vein of Light Metal at the mine, I spent just 10 minutes mining before I withdrew.
As for wood, there aren’t any highest grade trees, but a somewhat good tree has sprung up, so I harvest just one tree.

It’s just a little bit, but I’ve got my hands on some, so this time I’m going to steadily walk carefreely on the path to the Fairy Country. When I think back to the first time I reached the Fairy Country, unsatisfactorily, I was unable to see much of the scenery, after all.
I walked steadily along that path that was surrounded by trees to its right and left.
Although the trees grow thick together, the players investigated the trees here, and determined that there are no suitable trees for crafting, and so there was no opportunity to cut them down.

Tree therapy1 inside the game … it’s not like that, but even so, with this I can be refreshed. Of course I have <Danger Perception> activated; if a monster’s shadow drops in I will immediately prepare my weapon.
This time my objective is not fighting, so if they’re not definitely targeting this direction, then I’ve decided to ignore them.

This is good … or like, every single time, events occur until I can’t stand it, but the Fairy Country’s north gate is in sight. Last time I came from the south, so this time let’s see how it goes with the west or east … just when I thought that.

Even the Tough Spot will One Day be Captured

I’ve done my bow enhancement and finished replenishing my supplies; why don’t I head to the Fairy Country for the second time now; but when I finished making my preparations, an Information popped up.

— Urgent Information
At this time, we are truly grateful that everyone is enjoying One More・Free Life・Online. Currently, a Secret Boss of the Challenge of the Dead has been destroyed, and we have confirmed that the event has been completed.
As the result, right now a new category, 『Tonfa』has been added; tonfa is a hand-to-hand combat derivative; you are unable to make grappling attacks, but in exchange blocking effectiveness and power is increased. For more information, please wait for official homepage’s update. Once again … (more…)

Stuff relating to the system is more than expected.

Extra; Why the Bow Guild Bought the Bow at a High Price

Here is the Apollo’s Bow Guild’s Guild Area.
They are conducting a meeting in conjunction with Crystal Rain’s representative for clear the Under Dungeon; Bow Area.

“Then, what you’re saying is that, right now there has been no progress on the crafting front at this time, ne?”

Ayame said with a stern expression; even now the crafters in-house were unable to make a bow stronger than the aforementioned Atk29.

“My bad, but to get it any further, we’re going to need a lot more good wood, that’s the conclusion we’ve reached…”

“And about that, the resources are also already unreliable. We’re going to have to take a break from research and enter a time of gathering resources, or else…”

These words aren’t only from the woodworking crafters; the blacksmiths are also in agreement. (more…)

It’s continued for quite a while.
<t/n: due to me numbering the Extra Editions as x.5s, this actually is the 100th chapter>

Extra Edition; Underneath the Sakura Tree

“It’s about time you fulfilled your promise.”

To the Queen, who suddenly appeared without any rhyme or reason, I raised a stupid, “Ha?”.

“The date promise! I won’t let you say you forgot! If you do say it, I’ll tie you up!”

— Aa, THAT, huh? I completely forgot. Of course I don’t let that out of my mouth.

“That’s fine, but … can I ask you something?”

The Queen’s ear tilted a bit and above her head a “?” mark floated up.

“Do you know of any place with these flowers blooming? If there is one, I’d definitely like to have the date there, see.”

So saying, I showed her a screenshot of a real-life sakura tree in bloom.
It doesn’t really make me upset, but somehow I don’t really like the noisy type flower-viewing with lots of drinking.
While slowly gazing at the sakura in full bloom, peacefully nibbling at the food, drinking just a little sake; I personally prefer to bask in this elegant feeling … but you can’t hope for that in real-life. (more…)

And on the Day of the Transaction

“— Good grief, you’re certainly energetic.”

Since I had finished the bow for Ayame-san, when I conveyed that I’d like her to come to the designated spot, she really jumped on board. It seems like they’re really at their wits’ end with capturing this Under Dungeon; it’s a situation where’s it’s really a close game.
That said, on the Under Dungeon exclusive thread on the forums they’re saying, it’s all too hard, or you can’t see any way to clear it; no matter what weapon, it seems like they’re all having difficulties.
As you might expect, I have no intentions on sticking my hands in that kind of dungeon … for now.

“I, I’ve kept you waiting!”

She ran it seems; at our meeting spot in a not very popular house, Ayame-san arrived.

“You said it was ready, so … definitely please let me see the finished bow!”

Noah-san is also somewhat excited; in that case, I hurry and let them see it through Rental.

Composite Longbow, Light Metal Line
Quality 7

The instant they saw it, the 2 froze. Well, yeah, since its abilities have gone up by about 2 times.

“— F,forty-seven…!?”

When Ayame-san restarted from her frozen state, she let out an absentminded voice.
Right after, “Wh,what is this~!?” the two girls’ shriek echoed through the room … thanks to that my ears hurt.

“Noisy! You 2, calm down!”

I couldn’t help yelling.

If I’m going through the trouble to make it, it might as well be a good item

Now that I’m going to be making a long bow, first I must practice making long bows.
That said, bows aren’t all that different, and yesterday I got to personally take and study the form of Ayame-san’s bow, which is huge. I should be able to progress faster than if I were making a staff.

Anyway, I took several of the worst quality wood from the forest area closest to Faust to use for practice. The wood from the trees that grow around the Nexia area that I’ll be using for the real deal is way too scarce for me to take, so since I have one shot with whatever amount I have on hand, it’s necessary to practice to draw up the blueprint.

First I’ll do it roughly.
Of course the quality is 1 or 2, but right now my main priority is just to memorize how to make the size and shape of the longbow regardless.
I intended to spend all of today’s login time hammering out this learning part, but.
After around 30 minutes of continuous crafting, quality 4, once in a while 5, began making an appearance.
With the quality becoming good, I compared it to the screenshots of Ayame-san’s bow from yesterday and adjusted the shape and balance. (more…)
