“Brittle steel sword of inferior make, low durability, easily breaks, very shiny. No enhancements”
“Soft bronze sword of inferior make, low durability, easily bends, very shiny. No enhancements”
Hmm, well I was right about the steel but now how do I go about making a magic sword? Maybe its too early to go doing something I haven’t tried before, I haven’t even eaten breakfast yet. I have an idea but before I try it I’m worried I might break both and no be any closer to my goal. Seems silly to do a test before a test, I grab a twig from a tree outside my window and check.
“Enchant fire, key : Ignite”
Seems to have worked no visible differences yet. Now to check what i was worried about.
“Chinese elm twig, low durability, easily breaks. Enhancements, fire”
Hmm, Chinese elm? Well that’s weird.
Using the keyword worked so that’s fine, it absorbed a little bit of my mana but that’s fine. The problem seems to be just as I thought, it’s burning, I don’t mean how you imagine it but more like it’s using the twig as fuel. This would be useful during camping and could probably be sold to some for a nice profit, but it’s wrong. Imagine using this on a sword of cheap quality like the bronze sword it would probably melt during continued use.
“Burnt twig, trash”
Its trash now, even the enhancements gone so one time use then? This has been eye-opening, I think I can make it work though. First I have to strengthen these crap swords. To truly test their limits ice on the brittle steel and fire for soft bronze would push each to their limits.
This continued until I was satisfied.

… I might have gone overboard, these stopped sounding like an average magic swords. This is not good how do i fix this? These sound more like holy swords now what am i going to do? Hmm, holy swords? Those exist right why not pass these off as that then?
“Overwrite false data”
Alright!!!! It worked now I just have to change the description to sound more like a holy sword. Let’s see something like bestowed by heaven, legendary metal, and change the durability and enhancement list and done. After doing the same on both they start to sound more realistic, at least i hope they do.
“Holy sword bestowed by the heavens to save the world, made from Mithril alloy that shines like silver, extremely high durability polished and blessed by angels. Enhancements, Holy freezing, elemental resistance”
“Holy sword bestowed by the heavens to save the world, made from Mithril alloy that shines like gold, extremely high durability polished and blessed by angels. Enhancements, Heavenly flames, elemental resistance”
Alright perfect! Now all I have to do is name them, all holy sword are named right?
It’s so embarrassing i can’t help rolling on the floor in shame, why! After i was done earlier i decided to go eat breakfast/lunch since some time had passed since i started. Once i had food in my stomach and i could think about what i had done i started to regret it. Seriously what was i thinking i even gave them “cool” names.
What was I thinking, just why? It cool right? What’s wrong with it being cool? When i think or anyone calling them that it embarrasses me. Also why latin, why do i know that’s latin i don’t speak latin! It just popped into my head as i was naming them.
I have to do something I can’t let people know about this, i can’t let others use these it would embarrass me to no end! Alright I’ve come this far i can do this!
“O-overrite falsh da-ta”
Gah I but my tongue! Seemed to have corrupted what i had wanted to say instead of “can only be used by myself” it came out as “(4|\\| 0⠝ly b3 |_|53|) bi 7_|24?|(|)” i tried to change it but it became lock in the corrupted state. I can do lots of unimaginable thing but apparently i can’t fix the text i messed up, that just perfect isn’t it. I can change and edit the description, the enchantments and names, what the hell! I can’t change the name anymore! That messed up text seems to be stopping me from changing the names what else could possibly do wrong with these thing.
I decide to ignore the glaring problem and test out both of these on a quest after picking up my guild card. I don’t think I could live down the embarrassment if the elf lady from the other day saw me with these miserable things. I really should try again with my normal sword after I’m done testing these failures, the more i think of it the more it hurt my pride. I arrive at the guild office and miss elf doesn’t seem to be around, i’m both glad and disappointed that she’s not here.
Somebody else is obviously at the desk I was at yesterday, oh another lady with long beautiful hair, nice. I call out to the receptionist lady that was talking to one of her coworkers.
“Excuse me mis-”
“Ya, what I can i do for ya bro?”
What the fuck man! Why do you have such long luscious locks of hair!? I don’t know what to believe in anymore.
“Y-yeah, I’m here to pick up my card I applied for…”
“Ya bro? You know the name of the person who helped you?”
“Sorry, I didn’t catch her name it was a very nice elf lady, i was here yesterday if that helps”
“Oh yeah I know who you’re talking about, give me a minute while i go find your form.”
“Yeah okay, thanks…”
I swallow the disappointment and sadness I’m feeling. If this has ever happened you know the feeling, worst part was I was checking out his backside before i found out… i’m not gay damn it!!! I don’t have a problem with people live like that, I just prefer a large bust is it wrong for someone to love that! No it’s in the nature of every man to want that at least once, some guys, such as myself, just love them more. Why did he have such a girly body-line, i’m so confused…..
“Okay bro I found your stuff, if you could just sign here acknowledging you picked it up.”
“Ah, yeah, sure.”
I feel dead on the inside as I sign. I have to do something to distract myself so after I’m done with this i start headed over to assignment board to look for something to take my frustration out on. Hmm, “hunt 3 lesser water newts” it continues saying 30 newts are needed for their materials, seems to be the flyer type post with 8 already taken. I take the last two along with the flyer and go register for the rookie quest.
Is so grateful that it’s a different desk to accept requests, there was a well endowed lady standing there to assist me this time. Ah I might have to go to a brothel someday if i don’t get a date soon, but there is a difference between the two of course. I’d rather have someone to love and hold during and after rather than be rushed out for the next guy waiting. How about you miss you want to go out with me, heh.
Of course I don’t ask her someone beat me to it, she has a ring on her finger. Got to congratulate the lucky bastard that accompanies her every night, after i beat him up a bit obviously. Am i jealous? Damn right I’m jealous, i’m definitely not the only one either seriously which devil do you sell you soul to get with that!?
I go back and prepare to leave, I check out of the in and make use of their lock box system to keep some stuff in, not gonna pay for a room I’m not using right? I plan to be gone for two days so i buy some rations for just as long, it’s a little better than random grilled meat, at least dried meat is salted and flavored. Best thing is I’ll be able to take a bath in the river afterward, so i’m looking forward to that at least. I should probably by some soap before i depart.
