Chapter 14 Reunion… Kind of

As soon as I entered the room below, I was greeted by a door that, even though seemingly old, still stood strong and had a minimal amount of damage. Light was leaking through its gaps, allowing me to see the intricate features of the door and the walls in the room. 

 

The room was small, so I didn’t look up the details on it and focused my attention on the room instead. I was cautiously about to touch the door, but it suddenly opened, flooding the room with blinding light to the point of taking away my vision.

 

As soon as my vision started to return, I realized that I was not in that room anymore.

 

“Where is this place?”

 

I asked myself.

 

I am now in a place I didn’t recognize. A garden, or rather something resembling one. There are no walls around, so it was like I was on a tiny island surrounded by white void. 

 

Looking around, I found a place which look like a set of chairs and a table. That was the only notable place around, so I approached it. 

 

“What a strange place… it feels similar to when I was-“

 

“When you were in my castle, right?”

 

before I could finish my speech, a familiar voice was heard from behind me.

 

“Tiamat?”

 

When I turned to look who it was, she appeared out of thin air, but only on the size of a normal human.

 

“The one and only, well, even though I am here, I am not really.”

 

How long has it been, still as beautiful as I remembered. She approached me close after my inquiry.

 

“Then who or what is it that is in front of me?”

 

She wasn’t supposed to be able to appear in this world, so I wonder why she is here now?

 

“Well, something similar to, a Chaos Child or rather a husk of one.”

 

“A husk?”

 

“A remnant, something that was left behind after I returned to my realm, I did mention before that I have been here, right?”

 

Thinking about our conversations from some time ago, I did remember her mentioning that.

 

“As for the reason why I am only in this state is for the safety of this world. Due to my growth in power from absorbing chaos, it would require me some extreme calculation just to be able to appear here, if we are talking about the real me or part of it”

 

So, basically, she’s too powerful for this world to accept. She did mention that she was having trouble visiting the lower  worlds she created due to her accumulated powers.

 

“But why are you here now?”

 

She said she can’t, but won’t she be able to move around using that so-called husk, like right now?

 

“I can read what rou are thinking about, you know? You could say that this place is a bit special. This is one of the several sanctuaries I have created while I could still move around in this world, so it’s a unique space that is filled with my power. Not even the current managers of this world would be able to approach this place.”

 

“I see, and the husk?”

 

“It’s the main medium I used to create sanctuaries. As I have placed in the guidebook and your information bank, A chaos child would molt every several years to adapt the body to its growth. The leftover from that Molting is a husk. It could also be a corpse of one.”

 

“Huh, A chaos Child could die?”

 

I was shocked by the sudden revelation, but Tiamat followed up.

 

“It is technically a living being, so yes, though it would need a ridiculous amount of power to kill one. Or a specialized tool. When I created this species, I created for fun before, but I don’t know if it still exists and even if it did, it still won’t be that easy”

 

“I see, so it’s safe to assume that I am currently almost invulnerable?”

 

“Yes, unless you are facing a power on the level of a God. Also, unlike the previous generation of Chaos Child, your current body is special.”

 

That reassures me the most. I don’t to suddenly end up dead while travelling from some unknown force I should have avoided.

 

“Well, we have more to talk, so why don’t get seated.”

 

I followed Tiamat to the table, and we seated in front of each other. Then with the swing of her hand, a cute tea set popped out of thin air and floated down the table. It was followed by a set of pastries placed on a fancy tray.

 

After everything settled down, the table now looked like a fancy tea part table. There were only 2 people present, though.

 

While I was still contemplating about the current situation, Tiamat picked up the teapot and poured tea for the two of us. To think that a Supreme Deity such as herself would be the one to serve me tea.

 

While I was sipping the tea she prepared, Tiamat continued our conversation.

 

“You must be curious as to what this place is and why I am here.”

 

“Yes, I mean after all the setup you did for me to come to this world, it would have been weird if you ended up coming to this world on your own anyway, and my purpose would pretty much not needed.”

 

“Well, as I have mentioned, this is a special place and this me right here now is just a husk, what actually enabled me to appear here is your presence.”

 

“My presence?”

 

“Right now, your presence serves as a link for me to be able to connect to this husk, the same as the activation of this sanctuary.”

 

“Does that mean that the energy field I felt when I was around this ruin was activated by my presence?”

 

“That’s right. Also, the reason I connected to this husk was to inform you about it and other things that have happened, 20 years before your awakening.”

 

“Eh, 20 years? I just woke several days ago, right?”

 

“Awakening, yes, but not the time that passed after I sent you over.”

 

So, 20 years already passed, and I didn’t even know… not like I would know it anyway when I was in a state similar to a Cryostasis.

 

“Did anything major happen in the world during my time being in a stasis state?”

 

“Not really much world wise, but a lot nationwide. Also, it seemed like some events happened on the day I sent you. You can find out about that on your own.”

 

“Alright, I’ll look it up when I visit a place with civilization. I did discover places where people live a little far from here when I was scouting.”

 

Tiamat put down the teacup she was holding, then she looked at me.

 

“Shall we start the story from the time you arrived, then?”

 

I also put down my teacup and faced her. I was quite mesmerized by her staring straight at me, but now is the time to concentrate.

Chapter 13 Final Adjustments and Ruin Exploration

As I continued my travel towards my destination, I adjusted my status once more, finally creating a status that would be more fitting for this world.

At first, I thought my adjustments were alright, but after rechecking all the data that I have gathered again, I realized that my status have been a little unreasonable. And although it was not impossible to achieve, it would be a little too suspicious unless I found a way to explain everything.

 

So, after some adjustments again, my status ended up like this:

 

Name : Luna Chaos


Race: Changeling (Human/Elf)

HP 5,000 


MP 3,000

STR 100

DEX 140

VIT 90

INT 170

SPD 200

LUK 100

 

Unique Skills:

Craft Master LV-, Tool Analysis LV-


Title Skills:

Fear Resistance LV 4, Endurance LV 4


Normal Skills:

Barrier Magic LV 3, Four Elemental Magic LV 2, Bow Mastery LV 2, Evasion LV 2, Tool Handling LV 3


Passive Skills:

Mana Regeneration LV 2, Magic Manipulation LV 2

All Elemental Resistance LV 3, Mana Regeneration LV 3

Titles: Unyielding Soul

 

This is now how my status looks like in status reading machines and even in status analysis skills. I also made sure to include skills that help me explain the way I fight.

 

I found that unique skills were not really uncommon but could go from useless, to weird to powerful. Having a unique skill doesn’t make one a powerful individual, after all. Besides, my true abilities have been hidden in my core and have been protected by a layer of chaos barrier, making it practically invisible to normal people.

 

My Core status had also been update after I properly registered a new name for my current self and finally linked my soul to it properly.

 

My current core status is this:

==Core Status==

 

Registered Name :[Luna Chaos]

 

Registered Soul :[Luna Chaos]


Race: Chaos Child

HP 100,000,000

MP 50,000,000

Title Skills:

Normal Skills:

Passive Skills:

Titles: 

Titles: Kin of the Goddess of Chaos, Unyielding Soul, Blessings of Chaos, The Only One, Representative of the Chaos Goddess, Favor of the Chaos Goddess.

 

After properly binding my soul to the core, the core now displays a similar status to my body, and although I could still scan to display it the same way as before, this is more simplified and easy to understand.

 

I also recalled that attack and defense status were not included in the general status because both can be affected by various things, so when Tiamat created this system, it seems like she excluded it from the reading.

 

A person could still have a general idea of how strong a person is if they are fighting without using anything and based on their status alone.

 

After recalling more useful notes that Tiamat added to my memory, I finally reached my destination. What now stood in front of me were ruins of a building, and there was barely anything but broken pillars and cracked flooring.

 

Judging from the position of the pillars and the amount of area, the floor covered, I could assume that it’s either a big mansion or some other big structure. But because of the nature of the barrier in this area and this building being at the center of this place, this building was probably a temple.

 

Checking the remnants of the ruins, I found a small opening that seems to be a path underground. I couldn’t detect anything underground using soul control, which allows me to detect any beings that have a soul, so if there was anything underneath, it would either be golems or undead.

 

But because of the barrier surrounding this area, only golems would likely appear. Which I would also be able to detect with Chaos Control. Normal Golems also use cores which have a rather peculiar energy wavelength that would be easy for me to detect.

 

“Well, nothing really could stop me if I were up to it, so it didn’t really matter if this place is dangerous.”

 

And so, without much hesitation, I went down to what was hidden below.

Chapter 12 Remodeling and Exploration

After testing a few more test with my skills, status have changed. My current status under normal analysis skills would look like this:

Registered Name : Luna Chaos


Race: Changeling (Human/Elf)

HP 10,000 (25,150,000)

MP 7,000 (40,500,000)

STR 100

Unique Skills:

(Infinity Barrier LV-, Indomitable Shell LV-, Chaos Retaliation LV-)

Title Skills:



Normal Skills:

Barrier Magic LV 3, Four Elemental Magic LV 4, Bow Mastery LV 3, Evasion LV 3


Passive Skills:

Mana Regeneration LV 2, Magic Manipulation LV 3

(All Elemental Resistance LV-, Mana Regeneration LV 5)

Titles: 

(Titles: Kin of the Goddess of Chaos, Unyielding Soul, Blessings of Chaos, The Only One, Representative of the Chaos Goddess, Favor of the Chaos Goddess.)

 

all attributes inside parenthesis are hidden by one of my chaos abilities and would not be normally seen by anyone. I have also adjusted my body skills to be decently above average, so it won’t be suspicious to others.

 

As to how I manipulated my status and attributes? It’s one of the basic function of command, although I did need to gather materials to be able to do so.

 

It took me a few hours disintegrating the around 1 km are of the plain, since the only biological materials around here were plants. And I needed magically infused plants to create a stable body.

 

Still, Chaos manipulation is a really  variable skill. I could literally create anything with it as long as I have a detailed idea on how the object works. I could also scan objects and reproduce it. But because what I have recreated is made up chaos matter, it doesn’t really stay long and would disperse after a while.

 

I am current standing in the middle of the empty plot of land that was the result of me creating my body. I could probably use this area as my base. Before I establish that, though, I am still waiting for my observers that I sent out a while ago to map the area.

 

“Oh, they are finally back”

 

I told myself as I watch the sky where several orb-like objects appeared as if breaking out of an illusion. They were observer orbs that I’ve created with some unusable materials extracted from creating my body. Tiamat also gave me knowledge to create things by manipulating materials itself, which is different from Chaos Manipulation.

 

after collecting all the observers, I retrieved the data they have collected and created something like a hologram map of the surrounding that was only visible to me. A colored 3D hologram of the area around 100 km from me, which was highly detailed and shows the location of even animals and monsters.

 

According to the map, the nearest civilized area is around 20 km away from here, and this grassland area spreads out to around 3 km in radius. I also discovered some sort of ruins from the center of this place, so I planned to go there later.

 

After I finished organizing the information I have acquired, including data about clothing and other common information from the nearest civilization, I recreated various outfits resembling the outwear common to that place.

 

It was quite a strange feeling not being bother by not wearing any clothes because my current body is something like my clothes too since my real body is my core. Tiamat surely made adjustments to my soul to be able to adapt to this body.

 

Using the observers, I have also evaluated the average status of people and my current status didn’t really seem that impossible to achieve since I also got data from local adventurers and people that were travelling around the area.

 

After dressing myself up and creating tools that are similar to commonly used goods. I stored everything else in a pocket dimension that I linked using chaos manipulation. I still have many Material Cubes to use in case I need to create something again, which were the excess materials used to create my body.

 

Before I made my move, I created a big mirror not with using chaos manipulation to make sure the mirror I created is a clear mirror similar to what I use in my previous life. I then finally for the first time checked my appearance.

 

looking at myself in front of a full-body mirror, I was around 146 cm tall, a little short compared to my previous body. My eyes are purple with a tinge of red at the center, my hair silver and long enough to reach my back. I kind of resembled my old self in face structure, but a bit paler.

 

I was wearing a typical adventurer’s garb made from unknown material but still look similar to normal clothes people use. Of course, I made various alterations to make it a bit more unique, but not that much that it would stand out.

 

I have a childish appearance, but my eyes have a strong look similar to my eyes in my previous life. Other than is my ears which are a little longer and sharper than human ears because of my race.

 

When I created my body, I was able to select different race options and decided to pick up something that interested me. According to the knowledge given to me by Tiamat, changelings and halflings are the result of crossbreeding or regressive genes. 

 

When I finished checking my appearance, I faced towards the location of the ruins I found to check it out. although I did get a top view of the place and a little scan of the area, I didn’t do any detailed checks because I decided to visit it myself.

 

There are countries here that are pure race supremacist, but not that many and those countries would usually be isolated by surrounding nations, unless they are strong enough to force others to follow their views.

 

Luckily enough, this place is near the kingdom of Ariande, a kingdom near the southern part of En Vanicia, the name of this continent. A peaceful nation surrounded by allied countries that don’t discriminate based on race and have been around for over a thousand years. Also known as one of the strongest country in this continent.

 

“Now then, time to start my adventure!”

 

The flatland surrounding me looked kind of bizarre because there’s nothing around it left but dirt, though there should still be roots left underground since I made sure to only scrape the surface, so the plants should sprout again even if I left it alone.

 

“I do feel a strange kind of energy in this area, different from magic, so this place might be either a sanctuary or a sealed place. The answer to this should definitely be found in those ruins if my instincts are right.”

 

And so with thoughts of wanting to discover what was inside those ruins, I walked straight in pleased manner. My curiosity might have been more hyped compared to my previous life because I am now starting a journey on a new world.

Chapter 11 A New World (2)

[Command: Partial Sensory Link Initialize]

 

I once again opened my eyes, now greeted by a wide blue sky. I have also linked control on my new body, so I could move it. 

 

I then stood up and checked my surroundings.

 

I am currently lying on an empty plot of land in the middle of a wide prairie. The reason why this plot became nothing but soil was because of the collection to create my body.

 

After finding out that there doesn’t seem to be any dangerous creatures around, I finally activated a full link.

[Command: Full Sensory Link]

 

Seconds after hearing some mechanical sounds inside my head, I was flooded with senses like touch, smell etc. which felt new to me. Though it should be similar to what I could feel from my previous body because of deriving data from my soul. It seems like it has been enhanced because of the core, adapting it to this world.

After rechecking my condition, a lot of new information have been added.

Compared to those two, I am even weaker than a villager at the moment. However, this was because of the nature of my race itself. If I am to put my Core Status out, it would be something like this.

The Status of my Core is also  pretty much nonexistent even compare to the body I created, in exchange though, I have a ridiculous amount of HP and MP.

 

Well, for my Core as long as it has HP it won’t and not only does it have ridiculous amount of HP and MP, the Unique Skills it possessed are also too broken.

 

Infinity Barrier LV-:
Creates a powerful that is strong enough to seal Gods.

 

Indomitable Shell LV

Improves Drastically the defensive value of the User Recognized allies.

 

Chaos Retaliation :

After receiving a certain amount of damage, the core will be activated and would launch a 180* Mana Shockwave that would kill those that considered weak.

 

I don’t know how much mana it would take for me to activate Chaos Retaliation, so I will have to test it out some time in the future.

Chapter 10 A New World

Slowly, my consciousness resurfaced, but I couldn’t make up anything. No sight, no sound, not even feeling anything around me, as if I was just floating in nothingness.

 

However, what was different was that I was unable to feel the suppressing pressure I felt when I was in the chaos realm, so I have definitely left the place.

 

[Rina, hey, you are finally awake. The connection is is also stable.]

 

I was surprised when I suddenly heard a voice, but I then remembered that it was Tiamat’s voice and relaxed. Even though I couldn’t feel anything. Is she going to explain what’s happening to me right now?

 

[Ah, you are probably confused because right now, you most likely don’t have any of your senses active. But don’t be scared, that’s normal. And since I currently can’t read your mind, I’ll only instruct you on what to do. Also, this communication is one-sided because, so you won’t be able to reply too.]

 

Hmmm, she’s probably using her authority, power, or something to directly communicate with me.

 

[Well then, first, in your mind, say activate core as if you are activating a voice program in your phone.]

 

I immediately followed her instructions.

 

[Activate Core…]

 

At first, I didn’t feel anything, then slowly I could feel something build up in the center of my being. Then I could hear strange noises like a mechanical device starting up. 

 

then a seemingly robotic voice followed it.

 

[Core Activation complete, waiting for further instructions. If you require help, please refer to the manual and call Help Menu]

 

It was then followed by Tiamat’s voice confirming that I have successfully activated the Core.

 

[Alright, that’s good, you have activated it properly. Then I will explain a bit, right now, your core is active, but you are still in a state of stasis. You would need to use the Help Menu for further details, so I’ll only tell you to do your best. I can’t interfere more than what I am currently doing or that world would end up with distortions. Anyway, just note that everything is inside the help menu, even including information about this world. So do your best. I will be watching from over there and enjoy your adventures. Goodbye for now.]

 

Without giving me any help at all, she left me at the mercy of the help menu, which would probably tell me about the rest I needed to know.

 

For the time being, I decided to follow her instructions.

 

[Help Menu]

 

Saying so, in my mind, a frame similar to that of a game came out in front of me as if it were a floating monitor. I noticed a blinking punctuation mark on the and because there is no mouse or pointer to use to click it, I only thought of opening it.

 

Seemingly succeeding, I read the instructions that were displayed in front of me. The explanation was easy to understand, probably because Tiamat arranged if to be easy for me to learn from. After following the initial procedures I needed to do, I then issued commands to check my current condition.

 

[Core Status]

 

Issuing the command, I was shown a detail of my current condition.

 

Current Core Status: Active

 

Registered Name : [None]

 

Registered Soul : [Rina] (Temporary Name)


Current Status : (Body Composition Not Yet Created)

 

Urgent Requirements : (Command to Generate Body)

 

I see, no wonder I don’t have any sense available. For now, I need to create my body according to manual. I probably look like the ball Tiamat was holding before. Anyway, to create my body…

 

[Command: Environment Scan]

[Command: Select Biological Components]

[Command: Create New Body Using Biological Components]

 

After issuing the command, I could feel energy spreading out around me, which was the first feeling I actually felt. I wonder what looks like from the outside.

 

[Command Initialized.]

 

The Core announced. I’m still not used to this, so I am still under full assist mode. On Tiamat’s notes, she mentioned that when I was used to the commands and stuff, I would be able to manipulate everything with the assistance. 

 

[Body Components are currently being gathered. Do you require further instructions on the desired body type?]

 

Following the notes, I issued it to replicated closely to what my soul data look like, creating a body that would resemble me from my previous life, but would be using this world’s components.

 

The Core then notified me that it was finished in gathering what it needed to create my body and ask me to command the creation.

 

[Command: Create Body]

 

I still couldn’t feel anything, but I could see a percentage bar that shows the progress of body creation. When it reached 100%, the Core requested for me to command to link my senses.

 

[Command: Partial Sensory Link Initialize]

 

After Issuing the command, I only linked my vision first in order for me not be in a sudden shock and slowly link my senses from there. Linking only my eyes, I slowly opened it. But what greeted me was surely shocking. After all, what greeted my view was a giant monster that look like a dragon with its mouth open and flames were about to burst out of it.

 

A moment later, my vision was covered in flames, and once again disappeared.

 

I didn’t expect that to happen, but that was quite a greeting. I wonder where I was. Not panicking at my situation. I issued another command.

 

[Command: Emergency Relocation, Area Condition Safe.]

 

Not knowing what was happening outside, I could hear some sounds from the Core, activating the relocation.

 

Tiamat did tell me that the Core was strong enough to withstand the attack of a God, so a dragon breath won’t probably damage me.

 

Now then, I hope that in the next location, I there won’t be interference like what happened this time.
