    Chapter 3: Confirming Current Status

    The day after connecting in body and soul with Ayaka and Kaede. Bathing in the pleasant morning sunlight pouring in through the window, I awoke. Beside me on both sides were my two lovers lightly breathing in their sleep. While combing their soft black hair with my fingers, I recalled everyone’s statuses. We already discussed skill distribution and development plans but I should consider again if that’s good enough and ponder further.

    I’ll start by checking my own status.

    [Twin Sword Style]

    Improves weapon handling when attacking with a weapon held in each hand.

    [Step Master]

    Integrating <Void Step>, <Shunpo> into <Creation> turns it into <Step Master>. Skill level becomes average value of integrated skills. Proficiency rises regardless of which integrated skill is used so skill level increases easily.

    [All Elemental Resistance]

    Gain resistance to all attributes, able to mitigate damage received from physical and magical attacks containing attributes. Mitigation amount is Skill Level x 5%. Integrating <Light Element Resistance>, <Darkness Element Resistance>, <Fire Element Resistance>, <Water Element Resistance>, <Wind Element Resistance> <Earth Element Resistance> <Lightning Element Resistance> <Gravity Element Resistance> <Space-Time Element Resistance> into <Creation> becomes <All Elemental Resistance>. Skill level becomes average value of integrated skills. Proficiency rises regardless of which integrated skill is used so skill level increases easily.

    [Leadership]

    Temporarily increases abilities of companions under leadership during combat. Has no effect on summoned beasts or spirits. Stat increase = Skill Level x 2%.

    +++

    Skills I had steadily stockpiled in <Skill Stock> depleted completely after transferring them. But since there aren’t any skills I desperately want now, I should be fine without thinking about <Creation> and <Skill Stock>. However, considering the increased party size as well, I’ll probably need to utilize them more systematically than before. As for ability values… I raised Agility quite a bit with <Status Enhancement> so for the next one, I can’t decide if Strength or Magic would be better. I think my status is fine around here, no particular issues huh. Or are there problems? Weird titles keep increasing… <Harem Lord> and such… Even so, it’s the result of my actions so I have no choice but to accept it, feeling slightly dizzy. Nothing I can do thinking about this stuff. My desire to bring my lovers happiness is certain after all. Aah—this isn’t the time for thoughts like these. 

    Switching gears, next I considered Appraisal on Eleanor.

    +++

    Since I had transferred her growth type skills like <Enhanced Status Growth> and <Enhanced Skill Growth> early on when she was still low level, Eleanor has grown considerably. She specializes in direct combat but as a beastkin not undergoing Ancestral Return, Eleanor can’t use magic huh… Return… Ancestral Return…

    When I investigated in detail about the Ancestral Return system by going to the royal library in Midoria, the royal capital of Midgar Kingdom, I learned that it appears frequently for members of the Fermilan royal family, and that those besides royalty that manifest it receive special treatment to be welcomed into the royal family’s service. There has been no precedent for someone of royalty that already possessed the <Ancestral Return> skill at birth, it seems to emerge after they have grown. The principles and methods behind its manifestation are shrouded in mystery but researchers have concluded it likely relates to the royal family’s bloodline.

    At the time when I investigated at the library, I also believed in that information but… After meeting up with Ayaka and looking into it with her <Akashic Records>, besides the fact that the only beastkin who could use magic were those possessing the <Ancestral Return> skill, a shocking truth was made clear. From there, what I can infer is… Well, I’ll put that aside for now. Got a little sidetracked in my thoughts.

    Next is Maria. Like with Eleanor, since I had transferred growth type skills to her at quite a low level, she has obtained considerable power now. Also possibly related due to her declaration of separation from her country and family, her surname disappeared, leaving her name simply as “Maria”. Additionally, her previous title of “Second Princess” vanished, newly replaced by “Banished from the Elven Royalty”.

    +++

    Proficient with magic and decent with physical attacks, weak with scouting type skills. Maria’s pretty good with the bow but I feel it might be better to specialize her more magic oriented. I wanted to transfer <Limit Break Kai (Modified)> and <Summoning Art> to Eleanor and Maria but for some reason, I wasn’t able to directly make those two powerful skills inside my Skill Stock so I gave up. For some reason, Eleanor and Maria have <Otherworldly Item Trade> displayed in sealed status, preventing its usage. I figure it might be because they don’t know about Earth. So I wanna let Ayaka, Kaede and Ishidou learn <Otherworldly Item Trade> but combat related skills that raise strength take priority now so it will have to wait a while longer.

    I want to focus Ayaka on magic while also developing her physical abilities. Since her level is still low, I’ll continue to steadily work on her.

    +++

    Kaede excels at physical unlike Ayaka. She did karate on Earth too. With <Martial God>, we should mainly raise physical abilities to fully utilize that. Her title is… <Lamenter of Small Breasts>… Yeah, I’ll pretend I didn’t see that. By the way, it seems Ayaka and Kaede don’t intend on getting revenge on the Steania Empire. According to them, since they met me and made some use out of it despite everything, they have no plans to make a move unless they get directly harmed.

    Other Skills: Detection Lv2, Dismantling Lv3, Service Lv8, Daily Life Magic

    Airi is notably weaker compared to the rest of us, likely because she was originally a maid. Starting her adventurer career late is also a factor. However, her low level allows for early transfer of growth-related skills, which is advantageous.

    +++

    Befitting an elf, Lisa has high Bow Arts and Wind Magic levels. Her other skills are also decent, maybe due to her long years of experience. She was hiding her age before, even saying she didn’t know herself but <Appraisal> exposes everything huh… I feel inquiring a woman about her age is taboo so I’ll keep my mouth shut. Her status hasn’t changed much compared to when I saw it before. After parting from me it seems Lisa was raising Airi and didn’t go to places with strong magical beasts. For both Lisa and Airi, I want to interact with them as closely as before considering their titles showing they regret our discord.

    +++

    [Resistance]

    Increases resistance and the speed of skill level increases for “Max HP Increase” and “HP Recovery Speed.” Those with this skill can acquire “Abnormal Status Resistance, Mental Resistance,” and “All-Attribute Resistance.” A unique skill that manifests when crossing worlds through the “Summoning Ritual.” There are no skill levels.

    +++

    Manami’s stats are suited for a tank role. It’s strange because I don’t recall knowing her, yet her expression makes me feel like I’m on the verge of remembering something. Also, after Ayaka and Kaede persuaded her, Ishidou, who used to have abnormally long bangs, now has a princess cut. As a result, she transformed from a shabby and suspicious girl into a small and cute one.

    I guess this should be enough to check the stats. There doesn’t seem to be any particular issue. I moved my head, feeling soothed by the peaceful sleeping faces of Ayaka and Kaede, thinking I might as well go back to sleep, when I received a “Telepathy” message from Eleanor. It seems like it’s about breakfast.

    It would be rude to wake up the two sleeping girls, but I gently shook Ayaka and Kaede’s shoulders.

    “Ayaka, Kaede, wake up. Let’s go eat.”

    “Mm…? Mm… Rui, g’morning… Still sleepy… I was really happy yesterday…”

    “Mmm…? Still sleepy huh… yawn. Rui-sama… thank you for yesterday…”

    “Do I say same to you two? Feeling a bit embarrassed here. Anyway, let’s go eat.”

    “Yes sir~”

    “Got it.”

    Using the “Clean” spell of “Daily Life Magic,” we all changed clothes and then headed to the dining hall.

    During the meal, Eleanor and Maria were talking to Ayaka and Kaede, asking questions like “How was it?” or “Did you enjoy it?” Airi and Lisa, although blushing with interest, were eavesdropping, while Ishidou remained expressionless. I pretended not to hear their conversation and glanced around at the other customers. As expected in a country of beastfolk, there were quite a few of them in this inn as well. Yesterday, when I observed the city, it was mostly populated by beastfolk. Out of ten people, seven were beastfolk, with the rest being humans, elves, and dwarves. The voice of the man at the next table was loud, and naturally, their conversation reached my ears.

    “By the way, the Millarion Martial Arts Tournament is coming up in about a month.”

    “Oh right, it’s that time already. Something to look forward to. Though the inns get crazily crowded in the capital during the tournament.”

    “The tournament’s certainly fun but isn’t the victory already decided anyway this year again?”

    “Yeah… That person’s been on a winning streak these past few years after all.”

    So there’s a martial arts tournament in Millarion, the capital, coming up. I wonder who this reigning champion is?
