Current stats of Jihoon.
Standing up, Gordon put his hand on my shoulder and gave me a follow-up gesture.
Now that I had decided to be his disciple, I wanted to show good performance, so I jumped out of my seat and followed him.
“How much do you know about magic?”
Gordon asked me, guiding me to the second floor.
“I understand that mana creates a magic organ called a Circle near the heart and uses it to transform the properties of mana.”
Perhaps this was the answer he wanted to hear, that magic doesn’t mean any magical attack power or type.
I’m sure he asked for the principle.
“Other than that?”
“I’ve heard from the chief that a wizard is strong at formulas, so I’m guessing that using magic requires computational knowledge.”
I knew nothing but common sense because I was a magical outsider and not even a man from the world in the first place.
I learned about the circle as I studied for the quest yesterday.
To be exact, he asked, expressing interest, whether he liked the point of “operating.”
“So how do you think that computation works?”
He didn’t mean to hear the correct answer, so I went on to use the knowledge of the earth without any burden.
“There’s a setting value that the world makes, and wouldn’t it be implemented by interfering with it and transforming the numbers? The converted figures are magical and implemented according to certain rules. I think it’s a process to transform that setting into the desired form.”
Anyone with some sense can easily see I’m talking about programs.
Everyone thinks about it at least once.
The world is a God-made program, and we humans are like dolls that move according to the program.
So I uttered it as half a joke, but when he heard me, he burst into admiration.
“Oh, this is amazing. This is not the idea of a layman who doesn’t know magic knowledge. Where did you learn magic?”
Was that correct?
Rather, I was embarrassed to answer.
“No, it’s not…….”
“The approach was violent, but you are getting right to the point.”
And we arrived at what appeared to be his lab.
Books filled one wall.
Even experimental tools lying on the desk and piles of paper with shapes of English caps.
It was the wizard’s room itself.
“As you say, magic is about interfering with the laws of the world and performing small miracles. That’s why wizards are scholars who understood the world and covet truth, not the power to fight like knights.”
I am in a position to learn magic to be stronger than the system and truth of the world, so his words were like coming from a priest that I didn’t catch on to its meaning.
However, I think it is also the duty of a disciple to know how to respond well to the ambitious teacher.
“That’s cool. I hope I can follow you and become a wizard who can see the truth.”
“Good mindset. If you have some understanding of the magic principles, I think you’ll get a good result.”
He then found something on the bookshelf and explained the magic propagation.
“The magic spread to the earth in the first place when the gods appointed dragons to replace them.”
Magic from God to Dragon.
It is said that the dragon was delivered in order of elves, dwarves, and humans.
The demon species is a derived species of dragon, originally called the “Dragonian,” and described it as a tribe that chose decay because it was fascinated by the destructive power of magic rather than truth.
So Gordon warned that as magic is the power to perform miracles, it could turn into a black wizard who worships the demon species if it goes in the wrong direction.
“Circles give wizards the power to meddle in the laws of the world. Of course, the larger the circle, the greater the wizard’s authority. So the first gateway to becoming a wizard is also to create a Circle.”
He found the book he wanted, shook off a dusty hardcover, and handed it to me.
“You’d better read this whenever you can. It’ll help improve your understanding of magic.”
I nodded and asked questions.
“Is it hard to make a Circle?”
“It’s easy if you have the qualifications, it’s hard if you don’t. First of all, you need to feel the presence of magic to create a Circle.”
Feel the mana?
I don’t know what it’s this so-called mana for magic, but I already felt the mana I have.
So using Mana Emission, a hand-in-hand skill, for demonstration, he flinched and expressed surprise.
“Where did you learn that?”
“I’ve learned it while I’ve been hunting monsters and I’ve been able to use them before I know it.”
It was because of the quest, but it wasn’t something that I could easily reveal.
With his eyes wide open, Gordon closed his eyes, placing his hand on my shoulders.
And soon he burst into laughter.
“Your whole body already has Mana pores open! It started with paying off my debts, but I discovered an unexpected gem of a disciple!”
Gordon seems to be quite happy with this situation.
He grinned and grabbed my shoulders.
Gordon was 10 centimeters shorter than me, 178 centimeters tall.
Thanks to that, I was able to look at myself within his sparkling eyes, and it was quite burdensome to face a man this close.
“Thanks to you, I’ve been able to live. Then shall we make a Circle right away without measuring your talent?”
Gordon’s welcome words made me nod right away.
“I look forward to your kind cooperation.”
The maximum number of magic circles that humans can make is nine.
However, this is a theory and as a human being, only the first Wizard emperor was able to rise to 9th Circles
Today, however, it is rumored that the first Emperor of Wizard was a polymorphic dragon.
Perhaps so, there was no information about birth, family, or teacher who taught him magic, so this was what many people wondered at the time.
And most of all, the Whizard family descendants had a Dragon mark.
Therefore, the question of whether a human body can achieve 9th Circles has long been a major issue that has caused a stir in the Midland magic community due to its unclear precedent.
Currently, there is only nine Great wizards in Midland who have more than 7th Circles, only one of them has achieved 8th Circles.
Wouldn’t it be comfortable to just think it’s impossible?
I think it’s a waste of time to decide between right and wrong unless I was going to achieve 9th Circles anyway.
Magicians are classified as probationary wizards (1-2), formal wizards (3-4), high-ranking wizards (5-6), and Great wizards (7-8).
For your information, Gordon, my teacher, is a formal wizard using the 4th class of magic.
‘Circle’ and ‘Class’ are used in much the same sense, while ‘Circle’ refers to the level itself, ‘Class’ refers to the level of magic available.
So Gordon is right to put it this way when he uses the magic Fireball.
Gordon, the 4th Circle Wizard, used a 3rd class fireball.
“I can’t believe it.”
My thoughts diverged for a moment, and I had to smile awkwardly at Gordon’s face, his close face in and his burdensome gaze.
“Pah, is it fast?”
An infinite band that rotates strongly near the heart.
Gordon made a fuss asking me if I meant it.
“How fast can it be? I’ve never heard of completing a Circle within three days. Of course, you’re a special case of Mana Emission, but it’s only the magical qualities.”
Is it that difficult?
I’m not sure what’s difficult because I just did what Gordon told me to do.
“Is it possible to use 1st class magic?”
“Of course, I heard you’re good at counting, so you’ll learn a class of magic in no time. I’m afraid my student is catching up with his teacher in an instant.”
That’s what he said, but there was no such thing as jealousy on Gordon’s face.
I learned from Gordon the most basic magic formula, and it was a level of difficulty that I could solve if I knew what is the magic formula, so I learned magic without difficulty.
The bead of light was before my eyes.
When the magic was used without any problems following the creation of the circle, I hurled my fist inside.
This shows that the experiment was successful.
The experiment on whether I can acquire skills without quests and reward cards.
“That’s a lot of computational speed. I know that your intelligence level was high, but now you’re a full-fledged wizard.”
Being called Genius in a calculation of some sort makes one head big, but Gordon’s continuous praise kept me calm and humble.
“Okay, it’s important to be vigilant.”
Then I sat across from Gordon to learn the rest of the 1st class magic.
Then, a completely unexpected situation occurred.
[1st Circle achieved]
[Mana Increases by 3.]
[Intelligence increases by 1.]
A message I never thought of.
And at the same time as I thought, ‘No way?’ my whole body was drained.
It was the same sensation when I woke up from a dream.
“Come on, I will just sleep for a while…….”
To calm down the embarrassed Gordon, with my mind fading consciousness I uttered such a desperate last word.
After a while, when I opened my eyes, it was the scenery of a 10 Pyeong studio full of the scent of a man that welcomed me.
“The original quest was to hunt 30 orcs…….”
Is achieving a new skill is like completing a quest?
I grinned and put my hand near the heart where I could still feel the circle.
Well, this is certainly not a bad situation though.
