Suddenly, Wandering Around the Imperial Capital
“That was very delicious”
“It was good.”
“Ah, thank you very much.”
We paid the sixty silvers and left the diner. Our business had gone unexpectedly smoothly, and we had nothing else to do today. So how could we pass the rest of our time… Well, what about a walk to help with digestion?
“Yes. It was more than I expected.”
Daniela said as she patted her stomach. And so we decided to wander around for a while.
Half of the northwest side of the Western District was facilities related to the arena. Hospital, smithy etcetera. Hmm…I had been taken to a hospital in Spiris after hunting that wyvern. That was the first time I saw medical magic. I wonder what attribute it was?
“You know, medical magic? What attribute is that?”
“Void. Medical magic and lifestyle magic are generally void. That is why there are few people who can use them.”
“Ah, I see. That’s why potions are so important.”
“Exactly. There is even medical magic that allows you to create potions. The power of medical potions is immense. It could even heal my ruined arm.”
The potion I used after that wind dragon fight.
“That was really a close call. I shudder to think what would have happened without potions.”
“Yeah… So, these medical potions. Are they more vibrant in color?”
“Aye. The fewer impurities they have, the clearer the color. Or so I have heard.”
“Hmmm. In other words, potions made from herbs have fibers and other impurities that potions made with magic don’t have?”
“Something like that.”
I see… Maybe potions made from herbs were bitter because of that as well. Interesting.
“Void… It’s like you can do anything with it.”
“In a way. Perhaps it is the power that allows you to make the most of magic’s potential.”
Well, I suppose it was a cheat that someone else would get. I would continue to improve with ice and water. And ice was pretty cool. I could turn the temperature to below freezing, dulling the enemy’s movements while I used my AGI to go berserk…yes. I still didn’t have much magical energy, but I would be able to do that one day.
Hmm… And what about water? Water…
A water cutter like Schwarz Tempest was good too…yes. But magic that specialized in supporting instead of attacking would also be interesting. Up until now, I’ve only really thought about attack magic.
Speaking of moisture, the ‘gi’ in Asagi was for mist. What about using mist to confuse the enemy? And then I could use Presence Block for maximum effectiveness. I could then use ice statues as decoys and… Ah, are these ideas amazing or what?
“‘Mystic Mist’…yes, yes…”
“Thinking of more embarrassing names?”
“They’re not embarrassing!”
And I would give this some serious thought. If everything goes well, maybe I would have something ready for the Imperial Sword Tournament.

As we wandered aimlessly in the Western District, we eventually found ourselves close to the noble part of the city. There was a very high wall surrounding it. We’d probably get arrested if we scaled it…
“I sense someone on the other side…”
“Ah…you are right.”
I was able to use Presence Detection a lot better now, which included detecting things above us.
Maybe it was because my skill level went up.
We were now checking the other side of the wall. There was someone slightly above us, as faint as it was. While I could see nothing, there was probably a building close by.
