Arlo was lying on a field surrounded by trees. If one could see it from the top, one will see a big forest with a small patch of grassland where Arlo is sleeping right now. After some time, Arlo wakes up with a dizzying feeling.

‘Where am I?’

As soon as his mind started working, he was astonished! He expected to be reincarnated as a baby but here he was, stranded in a no man’s land surrounded by a forest. He soon realized he wasn’t exactly a kid either. As he had the basic knowledge of this world, he knew how to check his status and it came naturally to him.

From the basic knowledge that was imprinted in his brain, he knew that the average stat for level 1 human was around 10 and so his stat was more or less average. But what was bugging him was his level itself. He knew that people here start training at an early age and so by the time they are 13 years old their average level is around 5. What is more frightening is that this average was for common people when it comes to noble, their average is about 10. All this means is that he has a lot of catch up to do. Arlo made up his mind that he will do his best to catch up to them as quickly as he can. He doesn’t plan on leading a mediocre life this time around.

‘Now, which way should I go? Maybe west??’ Arlo pondered cluelessly as he had no idea where to go.

He wanted to get out of this forest and meet human settlement as quickly as possible. So, he picked a direction and started walking. As he was going through the forest, he was extra careful, he didn’t want to catch attention to powerful monsters. After some walking, he spotted some werewolf and walked past them without catching their attention. He did this maneuver a couple of times before a group of five goblins spotted him.

‘Shit, just my rotten luck!’ he thought.

He inspected them and found that most of them were around level 5 with the highest being level 7.

Once he scanned them, he knew that he has no chance of beating them without using his skill. But that also has its drawback, for example, his [Strength of Titan] skill has a cooldown period of 10 min and can be used for 2 min at most. Also, once he fully uses that skill, it takes 2 hours to fully charge it back to 2 min. He was thinking especially about the part where he will be vulnerable after his use of the skill, but what he didn’t realize was that he was being overcautious and overthinking in front of danger. When you are already in front of the battlefield, you don’t strategize; what you need is tactics! Just as he was thinking what to do, an arrow flew aiming for his chest, he was just too careless! With haphazard movement, he saved his life, but it penetrated his shoulder, nonetheless.

 

[You have received 550 damage! You have been poisoned]

[You are receiving 25 damage/sec for 10 sec]

 

All the goblins were smirking, they knew they have found a weak but tasty prey.

‘Shit! No time to think’ with that thought Arlo used [Strength of Titan].

 

Arlo [Human]

All of a sudden, all his senses were sharp, and he could perceive time slowly as his speed has gotten much faster. In his mind, he already knew he had to go for the archer. Archer was the most troublesome of the bunch here and if he doesn’t get rid of it, he may get into trouble. He started moving for the archer, and before any of the goblins could react, he was already behind the archer.

 

[You did 600 damage to your opponent.]

[You did 600 damage to your opponent.]

 

After his two consecutive punch, the goblin archer has flown away, but Arlo is already in front of the goblin and aimed for its heart!

 

[You pierced its heart! Critical damage! You did 1200 damage to your opponent.]

[You leveled up.]

[You leveled up.]

 

All the goblins were stupefied. They didn’t expect their opponent to be this strong. While they were shocked, Arlo was already in front of the strongest goblin and punched it three times in a row, which sent it to its knees.

 

[You did 540 damage to your opponent.]

[You did 540 damage to your opponent.]

[You did 540 damage to your opponent. Your opponent is stunned.]

 

Not missing the opportunity Arlo killed the goblin without hesitation.

 

[You leveled up.]

[You leveled up.]

 

Seeing that they were in a precarious situation, the other goblins fled the scene. Arlo picked up the sword and the bow and left the place making sure that no one was following him. Once he was far away, he deactivated his skill and looked at the two weapons he got.

 

[Basic Sword][Power: 55]

[Description: An ordinary sword.]

[Basic Bow][Power: 40]

[Description: An ordinary bow.]

 

Remembering that he has leveled up 4 times, he checked his status:

‘Where should I allocate my stat points? I would rather not use my skill points, but I need to use my stat point.’

The reasoning behind this was simple, he was in a dangerous area and he needs every strength he can get. Last time was really close. Its not like he overpowered them. They were simply too slow! If there was even one attacker who had speed he would have died back there. So he needs to get strong and as his aim was to become a magic swordsman, he distributed all his points evenly.
