Chapter 159: 159

[You will now be given 24 hours to rest . ]
[Prepare for the final tutorial . ]

A warm light enveloped my body, and I closed my eyes . After a brief moment of feeling afloat, my feet touched hard surface once again .

I opened my eyes and saw my waiting room . Seeing the empty white room, I smirked and sat down on the floor .

[First place reward – you obtained a tutorial reward box . ]
[You obtained 1000 TP (Tower Point)]

Although all I did was continue to adventure, because the first wave of challengers had no information on how the Tower worked, I obtained first place easily .
The competition would get much harder than now from the third wave onwards, since Kim Suho was destined to get first place in the second wave .

[TP is a currency useable in all floors of the Tower . ]
[Try opening the Lv . 1 Player Shop . ]

“Yes, thank you . ”

I thanked the system .
The Player Shop was exactly what it sounded like, a shop useable only by Players . This shop sold special items like the Tower Re-entrance Ticket and the Earth Return Ticket . Of course, neither of them could be used during the tutorial .

“Player Shop . ”

As soon as I voiced the phrase, a shop window popped up .

[Lv . 1 Player Shop]
—Physical Ability
—Magic Power Development
—Special Items
[TP: 1000]

The Lv . 1 here didn’t refer to my level . Players didn’t have levels, but everything else in the Tower did: equipment, technique, skills, NPCs, the Player Shop, and even the ‘system’ that I was talking to so politely .
I clicked on the ‘physical ability’ category .

[Muscle Growth Catalyst]

[Vitality Boost Pill]

The shop was selling items that increased 0 . 05~0 . 10 stat points for 1000 TP . It was the same for the ‘magic power development’ and ‘faith’ categories .
With my 1000 TP, I could only buy a few consumable herbs .

[Blue Herb 30TP]
[Luminescence Herb 50TP]

[Magic Power Clover 100TP]

“There’s nothing but herbs . ”

I remembered putting vitality and magic power recovery potions even in level 1 Player Shops, but it seemed that was modified as well .
In fact, all of the items listed here weren’t cost effective . As TP was a shared currency within the Tower of Wish, it was likely better to buy items from NPCs through NPC shops or from other players through the auction house . Ah, of course, crafting items personally was the cheapest option .

[Earth Return Ticket – 1000TP]

“This got more expensive too . ”

Even the return ticket was 1000 TP and that wasn’t even taking into account the 1000 TP needed for the re-entrance ticket .
In total, going back and forth between the Tower and Earth was four times more expensive than in the original story .

“…Looks like I won’t make it back in a month . ”

TP was important especially in earlier floors of the Tower . I promised Evandel I’d come back in a month, but it looked like I needed at least two months .
Next, I checked the reward box .

[Tutorial Performance Reward Box]
You will obtain three random upgrade scrolls .
(This box will disappear unless opened within 12 hours)

My luck probably didn’t apply to this box as it contained similar level scrolls .
I opened the box without hesitation .
Three scrolls immediately popped out .

[Skill Upgrade Scroll]
[Item Upgrade Scroll]
[Upgrade Scroll]
[All scrolls must be used within 12 hours . ]

All three scrolls were rare scrolls that were hard to find even after the end of the tutorial .

“…They’re different, huh . ”

They were different than the scrolls Kim Suho would obtain . The only common scroll was the skill upgrade scroll .
This scroll obviously had to be used on Random Dice . I wanted to save it if possible, but it would disappear in 12 hours if I didn’t use it .
First, I ripped the skill upgrade scroll in half .

[Would you like to upgrade your bonus skill Random Dice?]

“Yes . ”

[Choose the direction of the upgrade . ]
[Lv . 1 Efficiency]
*Decreases Random Dice’s recharge time .
[Lv . 1 Limit Increase]
*The rank of the items you can obtain from the Random Dice increases .
[Lv . 1 Intelligence]
*Random Dice will recognize your intentions better .

Three upgrade directions popped up in front of me .
I clicked on ‘limit increase’ without thinking for too long .
Thunk . The sound of a metallic bar closing rang out .

[Random Dice can now transform into Lv . 4 items . In exchange, its recharge time increases by 30 minutes . ]

The upgrade was over .
Next was the item upgrade scroll .

“What item do I have anyways…?”

I opened my inventory .

[Random Dice] [Lv . 1 Fleshfish’s Skin] [Lv . 2 Black Horn Octopus’ Heart] [Lv . 1 Red Crystal Spear] [Lv . 1 Red Crystal Axe] [Lv . 1 Red Crystal Fishing Rod] [Lv . 2 Yggdrasil Leaf] [Glossy Seafish’s Tough Skin]

My inventory was full with only eight items . It couldn’t be helped since my inventory was only level 0 .

“Hm . ”

I pondered . None of the items from the tutorial were worth keeping forever . Upgrading the red crystal spear seemed too… wait .

“Yggdrasil Leaf . ”

Was it upgradeable?
I tried rubbing the scroll on the leaf .

[Would you like to use the item upgrade scroll on Lv . 2 Yggdrasil Leaf?]

“It works?”

I confirmed it immediately .

[Lv . 2 Yggdrasil Leaf becomes Lv . 3]
—The effectiveness of ‘Yggdrasil’s Blessing’ increases .
—Yggdrasil Leaf’s physical ability increase improves .
*Your strength, vitality, stamina, and speed stats increase by an additional 0 . 1 point .

“Alright, that does it for items… . ”

Now, it was time for the ‘upgrade scroll’ . This scroll didn’t have a prefix as if to say it could be used on anything . I immediately decided how to use the scroll .

“I’d like to upgrade the system . ”

With that, I ripped the scroll in half .
One second .
Two seconds .
Three seconds .
The system, which always responded immediately, popped up three seconds later .

[Are you sure you want to upgrade ‘Lv . 0 Extra7’s System’?]

The system seemed to be taken aback . Perhaps, it was even happy .

“Of course . ”

I smiled and nodded .

[‘Lv . 0 Extra7’s System’ becomes ‘Lv . 1 Extra7’s System’ . ]
[Your personal waiting room becomes bigger . ]
[Your inventory becomes Lv . 1]
[The Community…]

A string of system alerts let me know that my decision was correct .
By upgrading the system, my inventory space increased and with a rumbling noise, my waiting room also got bigger .

“Great . ”

I looked around the waiting room .
I would be coming here often from now . I planned to bring my friends here as well .
Of course, the Tower had an incredibly large floor called the ‘Residential Area’, which was almost the size of Korea, but in other floors, this personal waiting room was the only place I could go to rest in peace .

“Now let’s make some furniture . ”

This was part of my training as making things should help increase my stats and Dexterity’s proficiency .
First, I needed some material .
I took out a Random Dice from my inventory and threw it on the ground .

[Well-cut Oak Tree]

Not having a level actually meant that it was Lv . 0 .
In other words, it was a bust, a trash that could only be used for drawers or floor tiles .
So, I rolled another one .

[Lv . 3 High-quality Black Wood]

“Sweet . ”

A large log popped out . With this, I should be able to make a bed .
I created a tool with Stigma’s magic power and started working .

“Huup . ”

…12 hours quickly went by .

[Trait ‘Dexterity’ improves to grade-8 . ]
[Crafting technique improves to Lv . 2]
—Adds finishing touches to handmade equipment .
—Automatic crafting becomes more elaborate .
—You obtain 'Blueprint-seeing Eyes’ .
[Your strength increases by 0 . 1 point . ]
[Your stamina increases by 0 . 1 point . ]
[Your vitality increases by 0 . 1 point . ]

After falling to grade-9, Dexterity was restored to grade-8, and my physical stats increased by 0 . 1 points .

[Lv . 3 Comfy Bed]
○Lv . 3 Recovery
*Completely restores vitality in 6 hours .
○Lv . 3 Comfiness
*Clears your mind .

I built an amazing single-sized bed .
Now, I had 12 hours remaining .
Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to rest .
The reason I was working so hard was to bully that bastard… or I guess that bitch ‘Jin Sahyuk’ as much as possible . I had to get stronger faster than her .

“Argh, I’m sore all over . ”

My shoulders felt like they were going to pop off, but I still had many things to do .
Next, I had to make ‘equipment’ . I was thinking of a mask and hoodie to hide my face, and I also wanted a simple armor .
I rolled another Random Dice to get more material .


In 9 hours, I crafted three more equipment .

[Lv . 3 Black Hooded Robe]
○Lv . 2 Temperature Control
○Lv . 3 Auto-fit
○Lv . 1 Sound Muffling
[Lv . 2 Black Eagle Mask]
○Lv . 2 Air Purifier
○Lv . 2 Face Protection
[Lv . 3 Leather Armor]
○Lv . 3 Defense
○Lv . 3 Durability
○Lv . 3 Ease of Movement

“Auu, I’m so tired . ”

Thankfully, Stigma’s magic power worked well, and they all ended up with effects I wanted . There was little chance that someone else in the tutorial had better equipment than me .

[You acquired the technique, ‘Lv . 1 Magic Power Infusion . ’]
—The effect of magic power infused into items improves .

[The final tutorial will begin in one hour . ]

Looking at the system alert, I pondered .
The final tutorial wasn’t that hard .
The first tutorial’s concept was ‘battle’, the second tutorial’s concept was ‘survival’, and the final tutorial’s concept was ‘society’ .
Before the final tutorial began, I entered the Community .

「Public Forum」
[Read this if you are Extra7 . ]


While I was scrolling through the public forum, I found a post looking for me . I could tell who created the post before even reading it .

[Read this if you are Extra7 . ]
—Are you still alive? If so, answer me .

He must have thought I died because I suddenly stopped responding last time .
I laughed and typed my reply .

—What, you finished your tutorial?

He seemed to have received an alert as he quickly responded .

ㄴAs expected, you’re still alive, Hyung-nim ㅋㅋI’m waiting for the final tutorial .
ㄴWhat difficulty are you in .
ㄴYou first, Hyung-nim .
ㄴI’m in the highest .
ㄴWow… Hyung-nim must really be someone amazing… so scary .

[Soon, the final tutorial will begin . ]

“Ah, I don’t have time to talk . ”

I didn’t have enough time . It wasn’t possible to enter the Community during the tutorial .

ㄴHey, I’m starting the final tutorial . Don’t die and follow me properly .
ㄴㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Yes Hyung-nim!

“Hm . ”

The long string of ㅋs made it sound like he was looking down on me, but I didn’t bother to reply .

[Final tutorial – Maintaining Profit]
[You will now be moved to ‘Tutorial Town’ . ]

Light burst out like a thick fog . Feeling the warmth of the light, I closed my eyes .


[You are in the highest difficulty level’s Tutorial Town . ]
[For ten days, obtain as much TP as you can in the tutorial’s society . ]
[At the end of ten days, you must possess more than 1000 TP to clear the final tutorial . ]
[All TP earned by Players will be theirs to keep . ]
[Lv . ??? Mercenary’s Pub]

When I opened my eyes, I saw a flurry of system alerts along with the status window of the building in front of me .

“…It’s practically a city . ”

I looked around .
Behind me were houses built with yellow bricks and medieval-style shops . In front of me was a pub made entirely out of wood . The whole scene looked like it came out of a fantasy novel .

For the first time in my life, I entered a pub .
After opening the stiff wooden door, I walked on the creaking wooden floor .

“Uhahaha . ”
“Hahahaha . ”
“Kuhahaha . ”

As soon as I entered, rowdy laughter rang out .
First, I took a good look around the place . Many muscular NPCs were talking and having fun .
For the record, it was hard to distinguish between NPCs and Players in the Tower . As such, it was better to pretend to be an NPC as much as possible .
I lifted up the hood on my robe and sat down at the counter .

“What can I get ya?”

The owner asked .
I glanced at the menu in front of me and ordered fluently .

“One gin . ”

“That’ll be 50TP . ”

[You can take out 50TP from your inventory . ]

“It shouldn’t be that expensive . ”

“…20TP . ”

The owner lowered the price by over 50% . However, 20TP was still too expensive .
I pretended to reach into my pocket and took out five 1TP coins .
The owner poured gin into a glass without saying anything .

[Lv . 1 Gin]
○Lv . 1 Alcohol

It seemed the drink wasn’t drugged .
I chugged the glass .
It was then .


The wooden door I just used opened once again .
I turned around instinctively .
Immediately, my eyes widened in shock .
Standing at the door was a man and a woman .

The woman was Caucasian and short .
Her white hair was noticeable even from a distance, and her puppy-like eyes shone like jewels . Anyone looking at her would wonder how such a small face could contain such beauty .

Next to the woman was a well-built Asian man . His appearance was just as praiseworthy as the woman’s .

“Where is this? How mysterious . ”

They were Heroes from the honored Temple of Justice, the strongest members the Hero Association had to offer .
‘Aileen the Spirit Speech Master’ and ‘Hellfire Yi Yongha’ .
