After they had heard the details of his Class, both Mrs. Hamilton and Daniel seemed extremely excited. They demanded the details of every Skill, and after getting the details, they shooed him away, as they excitedly discussed the particulars of what he obtained. Apparently his worries about not obtaining anything from the bonuses were unfounded, Randidly could only assume. Otherwise, their behavior didn’t make much sense…
“Hey kid.” Hearing Sam’s voice, Randidly turned and looked at him. The old man was carrying a large package that made Randidly’s face break out into a large grin. Sam nodded, some of the same glee coming into his eyes.
“Yes, it’s just like you think. I finished this beauty for you this morning. If I had more time, or could obtain better materials… well, I’ll let the work speak for itself.” Sam handed over the package. Randidly’s smile widened as he felt the weight, enough that his arms actually strained to hold it. It was a spear that he would need to grow into, which was exciting.
Carefully, he removed the cloth wrapping, revealing a long, steel grey spear, a completely whole piece of equipment, all forged of one extremely long bone.
Spine-Spear of an Ogre Gargantuan Lvl 44: A titanic spear forged from the spine of an Ogre Gargantuan. Extremely dense, the bones of the Ogre Gargantuan are a combination of calcified carbon and iron, leading to a metallic feel. The creator of this weapon is a fine artisan, and was able to bring out its inner potential to the fullest. Flash of the Dawn III. +30 Strength. The Skill Heavy Blows is automatically activated when the spear is swung, for no cost.
Flash of the Dawn III: Forged in the fires of dawn, there is a 30% to strike with additional sun based damage, and a 3% chance to cause an explosion of solar power with a strike.
Randidly laughed aloud. Nothing but Strength from the Spear, huh? The bonus from both the constant Skill activation and the forging method were extra bonuses too. With this, Randidly finally had a weapon other than that strange Aether spear to use.
Well… his expression became solemn as he looked at the spear. This spear was powerful, but it wouldn’t help to fight against the Creature, who was lurking at the end of the Dungeon. His idea about spraying stiffened and useless meaning into the Creature was worth looking into, as well as investigating that small amount of powder that Mrs. Hamilton had provided him, that caused Aether to burn more quickly.
After all, pick your weapon based upon your prey.
“Well?” Sam asked, his voice gruff. Randidly abruptly felt somewhat embarrassed, and swung the spear around, enjoying the weight of it. It was difficult at first, as his body adjusted, but the Strength bonus from using it made it just possible. As he grew used to it, his strikes grew wider, more fluid, his Yggdrasil bonuses kicking in, boosting his physical capabilities far beyond what a human should be capable up.
Alana whistled her appreciation, while Rose watched Randidly intently, furiously taking notes. Immediately Randidly stopped swinging the spear, feeling somewhat embarrassed. It wasn’t like he wanted to hide his Skills from her, she would have plenty of chances to find out later, while they were in the dungeon. But it just seemed a bit… braggy, to perform like this…
“Yea, Sam, it’s perfect.” Randidly said, meaning every word, pointing the huge grey thing towards the sky. Sam nodded in satisfaction.
“With that, no more soft attacks from you, eh? Well, that’s about it from me. Just… eh… be careful, alright?” Sam smacked Randidly’s shoulder, then walked away.
Looking at his departing back, Randidly didn’t know what to say. Should he have offered a hug…?
Scratching his neck, Randidly focused inward, and looked at his new status, with all his new equipment, his new Class… almost an entirely new person, his strength rising to another level entirely, without even him gaining Levels. There was also the fact that he still had PP that he needed to put into a Path… There was so much room for his strength to grow.

“Where is Neveah?” Alana asked, coming to stand next to Randidly, distracting him from his Stats. Randidly pressed his lips into a thin line.
“I… I don’t know. Well, I know, but…” Randidly turned and looked to the Northeast. Where his Soulbound companion still lay, dormant. “...she’s transforming somehow. Something to do with me gaining a Class, I expect. So for now… I’d love to wait for her, but…”
To Randidly’s surprise, the next person to step next to him was Annie. “...a NCC child developed a cough today. They brought her into the clinic, the parents more bewildered than worried. But…”
“Yea…” Randidly said, nodding, turning away. They didn’t have time to wait for Neveah, and whatever was going on. His Soul Skill too, was still transitioning, which was annoying, but hopefully that would stop soon, as it was showing definite signs of changes.
“Ready everyone?” Randidly said, looking around. Alana, Annie, Thea (and Chrysanthemum), Ptolemy, Clarissa, Lucifer, Ace, and Rose… Including Randidly, that was 9 people. A party of their best. Perhaps not THE best that could be fielded, but a flexible group, that wouldn’t debilitate Donnyton by being away.
Turning, Randidly looked North, but now Northwest. Towards the East End Village. “...Then let’s head out. Time to visit an old friend.”
