‘I don’t want to do this anymore. I already want to quit and it hasn’t even been two hours yet!’


“No, I don’t want to do the test again, I don’t really care about that. As long as I receive the job, it’s fine. But what am I supposed to do here? I don’t really know how to teach someone ‘agility’.”

“That’s easy. Most people don’t come here to train their agility. They come to receive skills and quests that raise it instead. Although you can run the training course to raise your agility, but that is time consuming and ineffective. Your job is to give out quests. You want a pie, make it a quest. Want a dagger, make it a quest. Want a legendary armour, make it a quest. As long as you can pay the quest takers, anything is fine. Or you can travel and spread the name of our agility course. Though the last option is only available for people with proficiency in agility.”

“I would like to travel. But I would like to raise my stats first.”

“So you wish to try the course?”


“Alright, I’ll just fetch the menu for you. Please wait for a moment.”

‘I guess I will need to raise my stats first before going on any monster hunts. But what does agility even do? Info : Agility’

As Fred walked down the hallway, he took note of the ‘great looking portrait’ and had to agree. It was a great looking portrait.

The frame, with its light golden colour, led the focus of the eyes to it and the design of it further led the eyes towards the center. The lines in the picture was drawing the sight to the face of the character and with the warm colours it looked like…

‘...What am I doing? I have never really bothered with art, so I should, at the very least, not start at this moment. Let’s just continue down the hallway.’
