Chapter 8: Is magic needed to become an adventurer?

Is magic needed to become an adventurer?

“What? Without proof of identity or an adventurer’s card, and without having a guarantee deposit?! Someone like that would not be allowed to enter the city! Unacceptable, leave immediately!”

What awaited me in the city was a sad but inevitable reprimand from the gatekeeper.

It seems that those who cannot prove their identity cannot enter.

(Although, if you think about it, that’s quite normal. We can’t allow criminals to sneak in by mistake, can we?)

However, this posed a problem.

I, who had crossed directly from the Intertemporal Space to this different world, had nothing but my sword.

Nothing to prove my identity, let alone money.

The only thing I might have was the golden stone that the dog gave me, and the pendant that Monica handed me…

“Hey, wait. What is that pendant?”


Seeing the pendant I took out, the gatekeeper for some reason opened his eyes wide.

Although confused, I answered sincerely.

“Uh, I received it from a girl named Monica on the way here.”

“Monica…? Oh, it can’t be! I’m sorry, could you show it to me more closely?”

“Wait a moment, what are you doing?!”

The gatekeeper, who had leaned forward insistently, opened his eyes in amazement at the emblem drawn on the pendant.

“This emblem… it definitely belongs to the group ‘The Four Heavenly Elements’! I can’t believe you are related to them. I’m sorry for stopping you, please, come in.”

“Um, are you sure?”

“Of course!”

After that interaction, I somehow managed to enter the city.

As I passed through the gate, I observed the pendant silhouetted against the sun.

“I can’t believe how easy it was to get in once I showed this… ‘The Four Heavenly Elements,’ right? It seems that Monica is truly impressive as a member of that party.”

Internally thanking Monica for giving me the pendant, I turned my gaze forward again.

There stretched an urban panorama unknown to me.

In the center, a broad avenue took its place, with several carriages passing through.

On both sides, there were sidewalks, and along these sidewalks, numerous street stalls lined up.

The variety of the stalls was vast.

From vegetable shops and family butcher shops to weapons and uniquely magical item stores of this world.

The whole place caught my eye, but since I had no money, I decided to postpone the exploration for another time.

Apart from the street stalls, something else caught my interest: the people walking along the avenue.

Women with long ears and boys with animal ears, a variety of races different from those on Earth strolled about as if it were the most natural thing in the world.

“I truly have arrived in a different world.”

From here, my new life will begin.

Thinking about it, I couldn’t contain the excitement that washed over me.

“But to enjoy this new world, I first have to acquire the means to do so. Even though I was lucky to enter the city, it’s no use being penniless.”

Upon consulting that gatekeeper, he recommended that I head to the Adventurer’s Guild.

At the guild, they told me I could take on a mission and earn money on the same day.

Recalling my conversation with the gatekeeper, I couldn’t help but smile in satisfaction.

“The Adventurer’s Guild, huh? This is starting to feel more and more like a fantasy world.”

Anyone who has read novels online will have seen an Adventurer’s Guild at some point.

It probably requires a certain minimum level of skill to participate in its activities, but that’s no problem.

After all, I obtained enough strength to be known as a low-level swordsman after a thousand years of training.

When it comes to facing low-level monsters, I should be able to handle them without any issues.

With those thoughts in mind, I headed towards the district where the Adventurer’s Guild was located, just as the gatekeeper had instructed me.


*Kank, kank~*

Upon arriving at the Adventurer’s Guild, I pushed open the heavy door and entered slowly.

At that moment, a din rang in my ears.

The guild was divided into two main sections: one was the counter where assignments could be received, and the other seemed to be a bar.

Therefore, shouts of anger and the sound of clashing armors could be heard all around.

“So, this is the Adventurer’s Guild… Well, more or less how I imagined it.”

After murmuring those words, I made my way to the counter.

After waiting in one of the queues for a few minutes, it was finally my turn.

A charming receptionist greeted me with a smile.

“Thank you for waiting, I’m Lisa, the receptionist. How can I assist you today?”

“I want to register as an adventurer.”

“Understood, please read these documents and then sign here.”

Saying this, the receptionist Lisa handed me a few sheets with instructions.

Thanks to the benefits of my reincarnation, I confirmed that I could read not only conversations but also text. So, I proceeded to carefully read the documents.

The documents detailed aspects such as the adventurer ranking system, rewards for accepting missions, and penalties in case of failure, just as I had imagined.

Finding no particular issues, I signed the documents as they were, eliciting a smile from Lisa.

“Thank you, that’s all the information we need from you.”

“That’s it? It seems quite easy to become an adventurer.”

“Haha, the Guild always needs more members, and many aspiring adventurers prefer straightforward processes, that’s why…”

“I see.”

Certainly, adventurers are often seen as individuals seeking success through strength rather than formal education.

Thanks to this perception, I was able to become an adventurer quite easily. I should be grateful for that.

Feeling relieved and content with my decision, tragedy awaited me right after.

“Now, I just need you to imbue a bit of magic here?”



Did I just correctly hear them mention magic?

With feelings of disbelief, I asked.

“Um, I just heard you mention imbuing magic.”

“Yes, that’s what I said. The adventurer card only activates its effects when the owner’s magic is infused into it… So, if this process is not completed, the registration won’t be finalized.”


“Yuri-san? Is everything okay?”

This was a problem.

It meant that I, someone with no magical ability whatsoever, couldn’t complete my registration as an adventurer.

However, I couldn’t just avoid the issue.

I decided with determination to be honest.

“I’m sorry. Actually, I have no magical ability…”


After hearing my words, Lisa was stunned for a moment, but when she understood what I had said, her eyes widened.

And then…

“What!? No magic!?”

She shouted so loudly that her words echoed throughout the guild.
