“The villagers and I could only rely on Gams. We need a little more manpower.”
In the first place, making a village with five people is unreasonable.
I know that If I use fate points, I can call more people to the village.
But the cost to do so is wayyy too high.
Different amounts of points are consumed for different people: merchants, warriors, archers, villagers, woodworkers, etc… The ones that can be called have a wide variety of occupations.
Also, there is an item that is surprisingly cheap, it’s called “Personnel Loot Box” but it has various problems as it is completely dependent on luck. What if a criminal comes to the village, then will the village be done for?
Such a game element is a bottomless swamp. I have decided to never put my hands on it.
Besides even if the number of people increased, you can’t force any more people to sleep inside the carriage. Even if they can somehow manage, it would still be a terrible place to sleep.
“A Housing Crisis!”
If I pour all the money I earned today and call some carpenters here, then they might be able to build a house a little faster.
Dozens of logs are lined up in the vacant plots of land. Five of them have been debarked. Gams is in charge of cutting down the trees, and the processing is done by Lodis.
I want a familiar and I also want stable residences.
However, I feel like it’s better to save fate points for emergency situations.
“Oh man, I am really troubled by this game”
I scratched my head, but my thoughts have yet to settle.
“Should I use all my points tomorrow?”
There hasn’t been an emergency situation so far, so I may not need to be worried.
Also, my fate points will increase tomorrow.
I can’t help but see Gams just sitting in front of a bonfire, he seems to be really sleepy, but he cannot afford to sleep in this situation.
A strange sound was emitted from the speaker.
If I look carefully, I can see a large “Attack” in red colour on the screen.
“What is this?”
I grabbed both ends of the screen and brought it closer to my face. Gams suddenly got up with his weapons out.
“Everyone, wake up!!”
When Gams shouted loudly, the villagers came out of the carriage.
“What happened, big brother?”
“A monster attack! Everyone get ready to defend yourselves and go back inside! Chem, you too! “
“But I can fight too …”
“No! Only you can use healing magic, so stay inside.”
Chem returned to the carriage whispering something to herself.
The inside of the carriage is not visible, but the Lodis family is surely trembling in fear.
As he strolled around the area, the fog of war is lifted somewhat, but since it’s late at night, nothing is clearly visible when leaving the bonfire.
Two black dogs appeared from the darkness.
“Is it some wild dogs or monsters …?”
I click on a black dog using my mouse.
“Black Dogs: Dogs which have been monsterized. Their origins are unknown. They are ferocious and carnivorous. They have higher physical abilities than normal dogs and their fangs contains poison.
“Is this a monster? Gams is pretty strong, but it’s two-on-one …”
The black dogs slowly creep out from the shadows.
Gams shielded the carriage behind his back and didn’t move from his spot.
It seems that it would be easier if he attacked and killed one of them first, but was he worried about the other one heading towards the carriage and attacking everyone inside?
The horse is tied to a nearby tree, but it is showing no reaction to this attack.
The black dogs don’t seem stupid, they separated and stood on the left and right of Gams.
I can only hold my hands and pray.
I have to come up with methods other than praying …
“Oh! RIGHT! I’m their God. A miracle, yes a miracle!”
Remembering my role, I opened the miracle list and started browsing its content but suddenly there was a change in Gams’ movements.
When both black dogs jumped at him at the same time, he bent over and attacked with both his weapons.
The sound of slashing blades echoed, and two black dogs fell to the ground.
“Oh, WOW! Gams!!!”
I would have been proud if he was not killed but stabbing both the black dogs and killing them with one strike with such indifference was frightening.
Were my worries unnecessary? Ok… Great work Gams….
“Are you okay, brother?”
Chem who jumped out of the carriage ran to her brother.
Gams put his hand on his sister’s head and smiled gently,
“Sorry about that … Ahh…. “
He fell down before finishing his sentence.
“Gams! It was a great victory!”
But when I clicked on Gams thinking he was only injured, the word “poisoned” flashed red in addition to the explanation.
