Here’s chapter 21 .
Next one coming right up .
21 HP MP SP
《Skill proficiency reached . Skill 『Appraisal LV3』 has became 『Appraisal LV4』》
Oh, finally my “Appraisal” leveled up .
Recently, I didn’t feel sick from overflowing information . Everything’s going well .
Well, let’s see what has been added to it?
『Small Lesser Taratect LV6 No name』
Just when I was thinking about it, there were some lines with color under the species name .
I appraised the green line unintentionally .
As a result, I know what the line means .
HP, an abbreviation often used in games .
In short, when you run out of HP, you would get a game over . A health gauge .
The gauge appeared in the appraisal result .
I am simply glad .
Up until now, I can only know how many damage I had received through my sense only .
From now on, I can understand my current condition just by looking at the bar .
Now, my HP gauge is approximately full .
It looks like it decreased a little and on the right end of the line, there are some bar color in black .
Though I want it to be in numerical form but I should appreciate what I have now .
And there are three different bars under the HP bar .
First of all, let’s appraise the blue one under the HP bar .
Well, it’s as expected .
If there’s HP then there’s definitely MP .
I think it should be showing the amount of my remaining magic power .
Even if I say that, I can’t use magic so it’s unrelated to me .
It will probably decrease when I use magic .
Of course, my MP doesn’t decrease because I don’t use magic .
There are two bars under the MP bar which is a mystery to me .
It’s a yellow and red bar . But the two of them sticks together and become a thick bar .
I don’t know what this bar shows .
Is it necessary to make it as a bar?
No, wait .
Maybe this is not skill point?
Since SP is abbreviated, I don’t know which abbreviation is it .
Yosh, I should appraise SP .
Ah, as expected, it was not skill point and it was the abbreviation of a different word .
A physical version of magic power . Does it decrease if I move?
But why there are two gauges?
Moreover, the upper yellow gauge is full while the red gauge has decrease around one-third .
What are the difference of these two?
For trial, I appraise the stamina point again .
『Stamina Point：Point consumed by movement』
Ah, un .
After all, I don’t understand it .
Ah, but won’t I understand it soon if I observe it?
If possible, I want to appraise myself continuously because I want to look at my HP constantly .
I try to maintain the appraisal cast on myself .
Hmm, is it like this?
It looks like it went well .
Now, I can always confirm my HP unless I cancel my “Appraisal” on purpose .
It became quite convenient .
Though it’s convenient being able to see my own HP, but won’t it be advantageous if I can see my opponent’s HP?
By looking at the opponent’s HP, I can know how many hits to defeat it and if my opponent is a magic user, it’s natural to win if I knew it’s MP .
Well, I still haven’t meet any monster that can use magic .
But, able to know a part of the opponent’s information serves as a huge advantage in a fight .
Did the “Appraisal” skill finally raised the cheat skill flag?
I intentionally acquired the useless “Appraisal” skill because I had anticipate that this would happen .
It’s not that I never knew that it’s useless!
Let’s pretend that it’s like that!
Well, let’s pull my self together and explore the dungeon .
Oh, a monster .
『Elro Ferect LV2 Failed to appraise its status』
I withdraw my previous remarks .
It’s still useless .
Why does it have to fail in such a crucial place . . . .
Haa, I’m a fool to expect from it .
For the time being, I should do something with the centipede .
But isn’t it impossible to launch a surprise attack here?
Although, it haven’t noticed me yet but it’s heading towards my direction .
Ah, I got a good idea!
I crawl up the wall stealthily .
The body of a spider is convenient for such time .
Without change, I arrive at the ceiling .
Ugh, it’s slightly hard to cling on the ceiling upside down .
But I can hold on if I brace myself .
I move along the ceiling stealthily .
Hold on, my leg!
My stamina gauge is decreasing?
Now’s not the time for it . I need to concentrate on my strategy .
I arrive right above of the centipede .
Yosh yosh .
That guy haven’t notice me who’s right above of it .
I attach a thread to the ceiling and descend quietly towards the centipede .
And then I jump at it!
The centipede starts to panic but it’s already too late .
I wrapped it with my thread .
And bite it!
This is my so called “Be careful, I’m coming from the top” strategy!
A great success!
Well then, itadakimasu .
I recall about the stamina gauge while eating .
When I was clinging on the ceiling, it was the yellow gauge that decreased .
I decreased slowly when I straddle my leg .
But now, it’s fully recovered .
《Skill proficiency reached . Acquired skill 『Paralysis Resistance LV1』》
Centipede, I didn’t know that you have paralysis in your body!
Won’t it be dangerous if I failed to defeat it with my surprise attack?
Let’s be careful next time .
Somehow the red line of the stamina gauge is recovering a little .
Thought it should have decreased by around one-third, it’s recovering slowly and now, it’s around a quarter from full .
Did I do anything that can recover my stamina?
. . . . Ah, I ate my meal .
So it’s like that!
I see .
I understood it a little .
In other words, the lower red gauge shows the current whole physical strength .
And the upper yellow gauge decreases when stamina is used instantaneously .
For trial, I try to run at full speed .
The yellow gauge decrease instantly .
I ran out of energy at the same time as the yellow gauge was exhausted .
Zeze . (ゼーゼー) (Gasping sound)
Ah, running at full speed after eating . I’m such an idiot .
My stomach is aching .
This is intense .
However, with this, it’s confirmed .
The yellow gauge is the gauge of instantaneous power .
I would lose my breath when it’s exhausted .
However, because it’s consumed instantaneously, the recovery is fast .
In fact, once my panting stops, the gauge recovers steadily .
And the lower red gauge is my total physical strength .
The red gauge decreased a little when I ran .
It seems dangerous if the red gauge is fully exhausted .
Like I cannot move if it’s exhausted .
I don’t want to be in such situation .
It would recover if meals or nourishments are supplied and I should always pay attention to the remaining amount of the red gauge .
