BTOG 129 – Laid-back stream

Relaxed streaming atmosphere.

=========.

“The question is, which one I should capture? the World Tree Cave or the Ancient Ruins of Flame?”

As I landed in Fias, I consulted with my viewers about my next plan while restocking items at the NPC store.

“I’ve heard that the easier one in terms of difficulty is the World Tree Cave. But as if in contrast with the difficulty, its area is way bigger.”

<I want to see ancient ruins.>

<You mean inside the World Tree?>

<What is inside?>

“Yeah, that’s what I heard.”

It’s a huge tree that rises in the northeast of Fias, and it looks like it’s at least 2,000 meters tall when you look at it.

The top of the tree is completely hidden in the clouds, so we don’t even know how high it is, to begin with.

That was the huge tree that synonymous with a superpower in any game, the World Tree.

Its dungeon’s diameter inside the hollow part of the three is bigger than Fias.

“The ancient ruins are located in the permanent scorched earth, but we went close to it once in the past stream, right? You know, it’s where the Slime reside.”

<Ah…>

<Meneas!>

<That Slime is cute.>

<Oh, by the way, what did you do with the jewel?>

“I’m using it as the material for [Yoiyami], I love [Kagenui], but this child is also cute.”

I softly patted [Yoiyami] that been hanging in my back.

With the required strength value of 295, the attack power is more than 100, not to mention its gravity. This child is an excellent Kanabou. {Oni club, I should add a picture of Kanabou}

Furthermore, Haruru said that there was a certain gimmick set up in this weapon.

“a powerful gimmick is still sleeping on this child.”

<Really?>

<Something like hidden attack?>

“Hmm, maybe?”

<Even the big swords are too heavy when they require over a hundred STR.>

<A Oni gorilla girl.>

< It’s really crazy that it requires almost 300.>

“I didn’t know how much big sword weighed, and my sense is probably a bit off since I’ve only been using heavy weapon since I got that Heavy Metal Gauntlet.”

Ah, but the Kanabou I brought from Trillia is quite light. I’m sure it was made from a material called light steel (karuhagane).

Since there’s a high-ranking metal called Over Heavy Metal beyond Heavy Metal, there probably exists a higher-ranked material in the light steel category.

“Well, I could raise my STR to 400 if I invest all my bonus points.”

<Gorilla.>

<Polar bear.>

<Hippopotamus.>

<Elephant.>

“Is this some kind of animal powerhouse championship?”

If you invest all the status points you gained up to level 100 to one stat, you will end up with a total 500 point increase in the said stat.

By the way, I’m getting 60 more bonus points than most people because I’m defeated the Named in two categories, solo and raid. In my case, since I started having Meteor Impact at around level 30, I’ve been focusing my stat on strength and dumping all my points into it.

When you consider the fact that the Oni race is 1.3 times more likely to increase their physical skill status than other races, it was inevitable that if they specialized in one status, the number would be quite high.

And I still have 45 points from the nine levels I gained in the Defeat the Apostle event and 30 points from the named bonus, so I can now raise any of my stats by 75 points.

I’m getting to the point where I’m overloaded with STR. I guess it’s time to open a new door.

“Well, against this kind of enemy, the performance of the equipment is a bit excessive. ……”

<Take a good look at your level.>

< you’re not talking about weapon performance, are you?>

<When I got there, I was at about level 40 levels, and the enemy is hard as hell…>

<Level 86…>

The defensive power of the red wolf set is still viable around these parts, but on the contrary, I think Yoiyami is overkill.

Yeah, I’m looking forward to tackling the new dungeon.

“There are still strong enemies waiting for me that I haven’t seen yet!”

<Stop!>

<Massacre incoming.>

<This is bad, this is BAD.>

<Two days’ worth of frustration release.>

<Bludgeoning Girl strikes again.>

<Bloody Showtime.>

“There’s no blood in WLO, okay?”

This is a very wholesome game, so there is no bloodshed whatsoever.

There is some red particle scattered, though.

< There’s no blood.>

<But you’re going to splat them.>

<What is the proper name for a person who likes to crush body parts?>

<And it’s not easy to separate body parts using a blunt weapon.>

<Initial deprivation of enemy mobility is the basic strategy of how Sukuna fights.>

<She only aims for the vitals.>

“Not necessarily true, I’m just aiming for the part of the fight where I can take away the most mobility of my enemy.”

This is a habit. I know that if I destroy one part of the body, it will usually become immobile, so my body will move on its own to destroy the part that is easiest to aim at first.

Even if it’s not a vital point, breaking the arms from the foreleg will slow them down, and crushing their thighs will have an even greater effect.

Basically, aiming at the base of the limb is recommended because their movement will increase the pain, but it is difficult because the base is easy to protect.

Also, in games, even if you break a bone or something, the target won’t be able to move it, but it doesn’t hurt.

In the end, the quickest way is to crush the arm from the front so the opponents cannot hold their weapon.

< Sukuna’s Lesson about Human Destruction.>

<I want to know what kind of the point of view you live by.>

< I’m also aiming for the vital point, but the only person capable of destroying it is Sukuna.>

“By the way, if you want to destroy a human opponent without a weapon, the easiest way is to use Newaza rather than directly hitting it.” {Newaza: Judo grappling tech.}

<Nice move.>

<Technical.>

<Newaza sounds exhausting.>

<What kind of life have you led?>

“Uh, you see… Rin-chan has always been a bit of a target.”

She was the daughter of a millionaire.

She was often targeted by thugs both inside and outside the school.

Of course, there were plenty of bodyguards, but it was my job to take down those who were lucky enough to get past them. In other words, I was the closest thing resembled a bodyguard.

There were plenty of people who showed me how to do self-defense, so I knew how to neutralize them.

“It’s not easy being rich, is it?”

<Nana is a commoner, right?>

<Rinne is rich.>

< She’s something beyond the word ‘rich.>

< Rinne’s on a different level.>

< She’s the richest gamer in Japan, and her wealth purely coming from playing games.>

< I’m not even jealous.>

<Is Sukuna being fed by Rinne?>

“For now? I guess you can say that. Though I have a lot of money saved up, it pales in comparison to Rinne’s.”

Although I have inherited some money from my parents, I am a person who has a rather large amount of savings. To be more specific, I have over eight-figures.

After all, for the past six years, I’ve lived my life with no expenses except for food, rent, utilities, and minimal living expenses.

I’ve never been sick in my life, I’ve never had any hobbies until I started playing this game, and I’ve never owned anything that I could accidentally break.

Anyway, I had a lot of saved, and all I did was work multiple part-time jobs, and I was making about 400,000 yen a month.

Since I earned that much money, I never had a food problem even though I consume more food than a normal person.

<I’m not sure what to compare it to.>

<Wasn’t Rinne’s personal wealth over a trillion?>

<I can’t do anything but laugh.>

<It would be a lot easier if I had a million in savings.>

<The world is too different.>

“But Rin-chan also not a big spender. Even today’s breakfast was convenience store bread and nutritional jelly.”

I don’t mind as long as I get enough to eat, and Rin-chan is not interested in food.

Rin-chan herself is a very good cook, but she rarely did. In fact, she’s the type of person who considers meals a waste of time because she can use the time to cook to play video games for hours on end.

Rin-chan, in particular, unlike me, has good fuel efficiency, so if she drinks one jelly drink in the morning, she can be active for half a day without any problem.

But that’s not enough for me, so I have to buy a lump of calories in the form of sweet bread.

<Hee, surprising.>

<I thought you had a personal chef.>

<You really don’t have one?>

<Suddenly I feel closer to her.>

“Sweetbread is good, you know? I like them because they are tasty, and they also have a lot of calories. I ate seven of them this morning.”

<…7?>

<Did I hear that right?>

<You ate too many!>

< She’s had about 3,000 calories this morning.>

<Hee, ok, I add ‘hungry’ to your character.>

<And she’s not fat! I don’t see any fat from yesterday’s stream.>

That’s rude to add such a trait to my profile. And it’s not on purpose, and it’s not my fault that I have bad fuel efficiency.

<Like an old exotic car.>

<Lamborsukuna.>

<The three-kilometer-per-liter woman.>

<Is the exotic car really have bad fuel efficiency? >

<They were fucking awful.>

<The shitty fuel efficiency is the price of its extraordinary performance, so don’t worry about it.>

“I don’t know anything about cars.”

I have a driver’s license, but I don’t know enough about cars even to know what kind of car I’m driving.

Square, round, flat, big. That’s how you can tell the difference between cars, right?

“It’s been a bit of a dull day; do you want to go to the dungeon soon?”

<Sure.>

<Right.>

<Let’s go.>

<Oni girl, dispatched.>

“Let’s start the journey for the Oni village! Let’s go to the ancient ruins as we decided before.”

<Yeah.>

<Wooo.>

<The stream night is glowing.>

“Oh, you bet it will.”

I stocked up the cold tomatoes for the first time in two weeks at an NPC store on the way to the ancient ruins of the Flame.

=======.

In her previous home, Nana’s house doesn’t have any furniture except when she uses it for daily necessities. A futon, some clothes bought for her by Rinne, and a few valuables that fit in her bag. That’s all there was.

Since she’s a super minimalist like that, she has quite a lot of money saved up. However, in front of Rinne, that was nothing.
