-1 Volume 3
Jeong Dae-sik closed his eyes tightly and touched the window in the shape of a speech bubble.
Then the speech bubble popped out and a voice came into my head.
Jeong Dae-sik threw a counter-moon at that statement without even knowing it.
“Are you a helper too?”
“One million won!”
I don’t know what a helper is, but it was expensive.
One million won is not the name of someone’s dog.
It was more than Jeong Dae-sik’s monthly living expenses.
It is a rather burdensome amount to pay all at once.
Jeong Dae-sik crossed his arms and fell into trouble.
However, since it started, 1 million won seemed like a good investment.
Even if it is a scam, you can close your eyes and forget about 1 million won.
The monthly income earned as a porter is about 4-5 million won, so you can think of it as a week’s worth of work.
Jeong Dae-sik exclaimed at that calculation.
Scary of that, the displayed balance decreased.
1 million won was deducted, leaving about 65.5 million won.
‘Is it automatic payment?’
If this is an ability obtained through God, it is truly absurd.
Jung Dae-sik watched the speech bubble materialize, feeling suspicious that it was still a scam.
It popped out of the window like a hologram.
It’s like 2D has become 3D.
It was translucent like in the video.
It floated in the air and spoke to Jeong Dae-sik.
“…Should I say nice to meet you?”
It was like watching a game tutorial, so Jeong Dae-sik said in a sarcastic tone.
Like it or not, the speech bubble in the air, entropy, continued to speak.
It was a sound that was no different from what the god damn Democri had said.
Jeong Dae-sik frowned and asked a question.
“You mean to earn that money. If it’s money, you’re already earning it, right?”
Whether there was something wrong with Jeong Dae-sik’s question, Entropy ignored his words.
And he continued what he was saying.
Daesik Jeong asked a question, but it must have been the same as the input word.
The blank screen in front of me flashed and I saw something.
Similarly, it was the same screen as the status window of the game.
Their appearance was displayed on the screen, and each status value was displayed next to it.
Ability Disposition: Reinforcement
Five senses: 14
‘It’s almost like a game system, isn’t it? It looks like they made me a character. Hmmm, I don’t know anything else, but you have high stamina. Is it because I did a lot of nogada during that time?’
Jeong Dae-sik looked at his condition, which was expressed in numbers, curiously.
Then entropy continued to explain.
“It’s very convenient.”
Jeong Dae-sik ignored the back words of additional payment.
Instead, he was interested in the items he could open.
“What is space?”
When asked about an item that sounded a bit unfamiliar compared to other words, he explained it as Entropy had promised.
“Aha, you see something like an inventory? How do you call it?”
It seems that almost anything is possible through upbringing, so Jeong Dae-sik gave his voice as a test.
Suddenly, a space opened in front of me, and something like a black hole appeared.
I saw that it was a cube-shaped space with a side of 1 meter.
If one side was about 1 meter, it was neither too big nor too small.
As it is now, there wasn’t really anything to put in it, so it seemed enough.
The space closed again and the black hole disappeared.
“Heh heh, this is amazing!”
Daesik Jeong was surprised by the phenomenon in front of him and kept opening and closing the subspace.
Is it because of how I feel?
Entropy, which was nothing more than a speech bubble, seemed to be looking at him pathetic.
So I coughed in vain, and I talked to myself for nothing.
“…Then shall we put something here?”
Jeong Dae-sik looked around and picked up a booklet promoting food delivery as soon as he could find it.
And I poured it into the subspace.
Then the booklet disappeared from my sight.
Jeong Dae-sik was a bit perplexed and asked Entropy.
“What should I do when I get this out again?”
Entropy said bluntly.
“Just shout out the name of the object you want.”
It seems that the name of the object does not have to be exact.
I sang whatever came to mind, but it came out like someone vomiting out of a black hole.
Jeong Dae-sik tried repeatedly putting things in and calling them out, just in case.
‘Hmm, the ice cream shell doesn’t even have to be labeled, and even if you say it’s an ice cream shell, it pops out. Even if it’s trash, it comes out. However, when it comes to garbage, other paper towels and ramen bags also come out. Okay, I got a rough idea of how to write it.’
If the object to be called is specific, it is better to call the name as accurately as possible.
When talking in a group, other objects belonging to the same category also popped up.
In the case of calling out several objects at the same time, it seemed to be possible to call them broadly.
‘Okay, I’ve just learned how to use it… What else is there?’
Jeong Dae-sik decided to look into other functions as well.
‘I said stats, subspace, and skills and shops are what I can open up, right?’
Reflecting on what Entropy had said, Daesik Jung opened his mouth.
Then the screen in front of me changed again.
A screen that was supposed to be a skill window popped forward.
Jeong Dae-sik couldn’t hide his disappointment when he saw it.
‘to? Are you saying that I have only one skill?’
There is only one list in Jeong Dae-sik’s skill window.
It was none other than ‘strengthening’.
‘Come to think of it, my class or attribute is the Ganghwa class.’
Jeong Dae-sik, who was obsessed with the word, tilted his head.
‘When it comes to reinforcement technology, can anything be strengthened?’
If so, even just one might be quite useful.
Daesik Jeong asked a question to Entropy, who was quietly waiting to confirm his thoughts.
“Hey, is this my skill?”
“Is that reinforcement applicable wherever I use it? So, I mean… can it be used for things?”
“Can it be used on the human body?”
If so, it may be quite useful in your daily life.
After all, the body is getting stronger, so it will help in some way.
‘But the fact that I am a reinforcement type and have only one reinforcement skill is a little bit like that. It seems that the other Awakeneds have multiple abilities. Is there any way to acquire other skills?’
Jeong Dae-sik immediately brought out the question that popped into his head.
“I don’t have any other skills other than strengthening?”
“Is there no way to get other skills?”
“Can you buy skills with money?”
When I saw the entropy of repeating what I had said, a belated realization flashed through my head.
“Is that what you mean?”
Jeong Dae-sik patted his chin and fell into thought.
‘Generally, awakened people develop their abilities while fighting monsters or training repeatedly. In the meantime, I may not know the details because I am not an Awakened, but this is the first time I have heard of paying money to buy abilities.’
The voice of God heard in the space of God.
Democritus, the god of wealth, greed, and price.
He told me to give money.
He said that he would gain strength.
In other words, it must have been about spending money to buy power.
‘In a way, this is sage? …Then, does that mean that my ability is sensible?’
The identity of the superpowers he possessed.
Jeong Dae-sik, who was thinking about it, felt his thoughts grow longer.
‘I don’t know. You’ll find out when you do.’
First of all, I decided to open the store first.
The screen changed again and the shop appeared.
The store was nothing special.
It looked like a game item shop.
However, there are only a few lists there.
Seeing this, Dae-sik muttered.
“It’s really poor. Is this all that the store sells?”
Then entropy answered.
“Do you upgrade the store too?”
“We’re done talking about additional payments.”
Jeong Dae-sik often waved his hand to say that it was an additional tareyeong.
And then I looked through the list.
‘Currently, there are only two things I can live with: state and technology.’
Since each area was divided, Jeong Dae-sik opened the status tab first.
‘Hmm, it can be manipulated by touching it with your hand.’
Because it looks similar to a game window, there were some corners where it was more comfortable to open by hand than by talking.
‘see. Strength, magic power, stamina, five senses, agility, luck… All items in the status window are divided.’
As a test, I pressed the strength tab and it didn’t open.
‘Why not do this?’
When Jeong Dae-sik was doing something useless, Entropy said.
“Is there nothing you can buy?”
“No, no, it’s okay.”
Daesik Jeong doubts that there is nothing he can buy without paying, and this time he opens the skill tab.
The skill tab was again divided into several classes, thanks to which I was able to check what the classes were.
They were reinforcement, realization, transformation, emission, manipulation, summoning, and spiritual, respectively.
‘There are a total of seven series. Looking at it this way, it seems that the Ganghwa field is the most backward.’
Feeling some dissatisfaction, Jeong Dae-sik chose the Ganghwa system.
As long as he was a reinforced type, it was obvious that he would not be able to purchase anything if he had chosen a different type.
Then the Reinforcement tab opened and several lists appeared.
‘However, there are several types of this.’
