Thanks to a Different World Reincarnation Chapter 002

Chapter 002: Fun Character Making

“Okay, all the machine related setting are all done! It’s time to start the game. Fufu~, I feel so excited.”

The old man sat down in front of the monitor while making deep wrinkle smile.

Personal data that has been examined from the hospital in advance is displayed on 3D in the monitor in front of him. A figure only wearing underpants resembling him appear, the man started setting up immediately.

“The first is age… as expected  being young is the best.”

Sliding the age setting handle to the age of 18, the personal data on the monitor is rejuvenating more and more accordingly. Since its a long-awaited virtual reality, I set it to the age of the first year in college where I’m the most energetic.

“Next I make my feet a bit longer so I was a little taller, the body is somewhat more muscular in nature…”

The height is 175 cm, and he adjusts the weight to 89kg like when he was young. It’s a little solution to the past complex.

One way or another there is many monologues, this is also a characteristic of someone whos been long living solitarily.


“Well, the face… Would you like to distort symmetrically?”

On the monitor is the old man’s personal data, right now it’s in the form of a slender young man.
Although not what people called good-looking guy because its original, as a matter of fact, he went from top to bottom for an old man he is satisfied.

“Yeah, this is excellent.”

Now, the appearance looks different from the age, and the old man is satisfied with his figure. The race is still human by default, and it doesn’t change the hair and skin color either.

In this game, it’s possible to alter the character quite boldly.
Its also possible to make a different person beautifully, in addition to this you can also select various animal ears like dog, cat, and rabbit if you choose a beast man as your race, but you can only change the ears and tail.
Also, if you are from fairy tribe, you can choose between elves and dwarf. If you are from a demonic race, you can choose the devil or vampire. A various small variation is also possible, so its possible to play with pretty personal preference.

The old man also tried playing with the dwarf and beast man as his character complete, in the end, he didn’t change his race.
Of course, you can also change your gender. But the man regrets trying to satisfy his curiosity.
He tried forgetting the memory of the female.

“That was unpleasant. Let’s go!”

Finishing the appearance model setting, now move on to skill set.
There are four kinds of skills 《talent skill》 《enhancement skill》 《gift skill》 《ability skill》, and at the beginning, we are given 15 points to spend.

“There are so many…”

As expected, the growth system provided a high degree of freedom, there are many selectable skills. Moreover, only a part of it is displayed in this list.
Increasing the skill level and gain multiple required skills, you can acquire derived skills, integrated skill, or hidden skills if you fulfill certain conditions.

For example, when you keep wielding a two-handed sword and the sword level reach LV10, the LV10 swordsmanship will acquire a new derived skill at LV0. By doing so, the bonus will be added and its more advantageous. And more original play style will be possible.

Although only 15 points are given, depending on the skill, there is a possibility mastering skill by repeating actions in-game, even if you didn’t pick the skill here.
If you don’t have swordsmanship skill, you can learn by swinging a sword repeatedly. Of course, the learning conditions and probability are undisclosed, so it’s not certain.
Just enjoying such discoveries is one of these game charms.

“First of all, it’s talent skill.”

To gain talent skill need high points, and you can only select one. But you can learn other skill and talent skill at the same time, it’s advantageous. The point that can be spent on other skill is reduced for the necessary skill, so its recommended beginner to choose one.

This is an important place to decide gaming style from what you are choosing, the man checks with enthusiasm.

“U~n, I guess I’ll just go with martial arts.”

When I was young, I was never good at exercise, but as I get older I feel like my body stops moving. Because it’s a virtual reality, it is this old man wishes to move his body all the time.
If you know the weapon you want to use, specialized skill would be better, but we had no weapon in reality and I want to try out various things. On top of that, I like the explanation that martial arts have an effect on general movement. Its significant reasons that old man decides to improve the motor nerve and feel better.

The first thing for the old man is to enjoy. He didn’t seek efficiency and power. In reality, acquiring skill and being the strongest didn’t necessarily equal. It’s up to each person what is the best, but its all depend on the combination of skills and growth. In the end, after I assert, I choose martial arts skill.

[HP Enhancement LV3] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of HP are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[STR Enhancement LV3] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of STR are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[VIT Enhancement LV2] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of VIT are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[DEX Enhancement LV2] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of DEX are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[INT Enhancement LV2] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of INT are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[Physical Enhancement] 一 smooth and efficient physical movement by the assist function   the more specific the image, the more effective the movement become

When the level rises, the ability and the assist function corresponding to the skill are enhanced, and it becomes possible to act realistically such as running the 100m in 13 seconds in full-body metal armor fully plate armor.

However, only 5 points remain, the old man judge that it’s unnecessary to level up the status enhancement.

Again, I’m glad [Physical Enhancement] is exactly getting better like the image. I decided to check the [Magic Power Enhancement] in case its important skill.

[Magic Power Enhancement] 一 smooth and efficient magical movement by the assist function   the more specific the image, the more effective the movement become

“Yeah, this is necessary.”

Even the main skill is martial art because it was a fantasy I want to use magic too. I lose interest in athletic and magic without a sense of movement. Under normal circumstance, magic is still an enigma. Compared to the younger generation the old man thinks is required for him to adapt.

It can be helped to use the 3 points from the remaining 5, [Magic Power Enhancement] is selected.

“Only 2 points are left. What should I used it for?”

The old man gathers his thoughts while watching the remaining gift skills and ability skills.

The gift skills basically always in effect and has no level. The ability skills seem to have two kinds of skill such as [Sword] and [Fire Magic] for technical skills and individual skills such as [Appraisal] and [Presence Sense]. Both of them have the same level that they can raise the level to 10, but I feel that it is easier to upgrade the skills of the technical system like [Sword] image-wise, and also to master it.

However technical sword skill is, you can learn a special move like the shock wave from the weapon by raising the level. Romance like playstyle is also fun, but considering the combat at least you have to have one weapon skill and magic skill.

After thinking it through, the skill chosen by the old man is…


[Martial Arts] 10P 一 skill related to martial arts and general movement   Growth Rate · Success Rate · Acquisition Rate Enhancement but compared to specialized skill it’s still inferior

Simultaneously learned skills

[HP Enhancement LV3] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of HP are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[STR Enhancement LV3] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of STR are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[VIT Enhancement LV2] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of VIT are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[DEX Enhancement LV2] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of DEX are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[INT Enhancement LV2] 一 the initial value and the growth rate of INT are higher as the enhancement LV is higher   (Maximal LV5)

[Physical Enhancement] 一 smooth and efficient physical movement by the assist function   the more specific the image, the more effective the movement become

[Magic Power Enhancement] 3P 一 smooth and efficient magical movement by the assist function   the more specific the image, the more effective the movement become

[Health] 1P 一 it is hard to get sick and easy to recover   even if it gets abnormal it will recover in time

[Appraisal LV1] 1P 一 you can know the target information depending on the LV


The old man chose [Health] and [Appraisal] as the last skill.

Because terrible eating habits in the college and diagnosed with diabetes, even recently he’s been suffering from severe illness and hospitalized for a year, even though it’s only a game he can’t remove [Health].

And the last point is hard to decide, he settled on [Appraisal] thinking the skill would be difficult to learn but seems convenient.
His memorizing skill also gets worse as he ages, it’s convenient that he won’t forget the people’s name.

The old man thought positively that it would be easy to memorize the battle skill from martial art and having fun learning magic in the game.

“I’m finally done. But it took quite a while.”

More than an hour has passed since the old man started setting the game.

“Hehe, but its fun, after all its good.”

But the old man is not tired, there is a sense of satisfaction to a dream come true.

“Alright! Let’s go to the toilet and bring water for hydration. And finally, log in! I’m trembling in excitement.”

It’s a little while until the old man first VR game. The smile of an old man who narrows his eyes and talks in pleasure like a kid without worry.
