New Land

I begin to run using〖Roll〗along the sea of the new land, continuing for one hour.
The scenery around me is really strange.

On the left side I can only sea the sea all the way till the end, while on the right side is the naked earth full of sand.
Is it a special geology, or is it because of the bad air current from the sea resulting in no rain, there’s no trees growing at all.
It became a desert even when it’s so near the sea.
Even if there’s a plant occasionally growing up, it looks just like those cactus one.

Even the cactus, it’s grown a real think green hair-like needle, and it looks like it’s crawling on the ground since it can’t stand its own weight.
It looks like a grown hairy fat caterpillar, giving it a really unpleasant feeling.
You might even mistook it as some kind of dark worm if you don’t see it carefully.

Even though I can see living creature here and there, the camel has three head with seaweed covering its body, there’s also a group of giant red ant forming a line, so it’s not really something that stirs my appet.i.te frankly speaking.
[T.N: Not sure about the camel, might change later once I see the data sheet]

When I look at the sand-colored centipede which is four times longer than me, it really makes me want to just jump back into the sea.
Without the time to do anything, the other side seems to start running somewhere chasing after a monster looking like a leopard.

With short, innumerable foot, it fiercely move dispersing the sand nearby.
Although it’s possible to get away if I used〖Roll〗, if we compare the basic speed it’s definitely above me.

I wonder what rank is this large centipede?
I think it should be around rank B.
However I should not group this monster the same as the one from the forest.
c.r.a.p, I really want to go back to the forest real bad.

Currently, I should find a place that has edible looking creature and set up base there.
In this dry vacant land, there doesn’t seem to be any place for me to hide my body from monsters at all.
I should dig up a hole somewhere and create the sleeping place there.

Furthermore,  when I use〖Roll〗to search around, I managed to find a spectacle of rocks arranged together shaping a big j.a.panese Yen.
It’s like a huge, 5 meter radius j.a.panese yen. Not just one or two, but more than ten are arranged in the surroundings.

I’m feeling gooseb.u.mps just from seeing this.
What the heck is this thing?
Pretty sure this is a nest of some nasty monsters.
Should I turn back?

I cancelled〖Roll〗to observe it, and seeing the rock inside the circle, I understood that some kind of magic circle was drawn.
This thing, it’s not the work of monsters but man.

When I twist my head around, I noticed that there’s barely any monster found in the vicinity.
Is  it some kind of talisman warding evil?

Among all of these rocks, some of them can be easily moved.
As its hard to avoid monsters here, is there a village protected  beyond this rocks?

I noticed that I’ve been hoping to meet a human dwelling here, thus I shakes my head to remonstrate myself.
Currently, I am a monster.
Although I might look a bit cute as a baby dragon, my current appearance is completely that of the enemy of mankind。
If I see the explanation before the evolution,〖Evil Plague Dragon〗is the type that human really scared of.

Even if I didn’t enter the village, it would be a huge panic just from being seen and the uproar might even destroy the lifestyle over there.
There’s also the〖Dragon Scale Powder〗too.

Turning back, I used〖Roll〗to go back from where I came from.
I run towards the arranged rocks, cancelling〖Roll〗after I slightly neared it.

Regretfully, I really wanted to confirm even if it’s only the appearance of the village.
If I can step on top of the magic formation, even if I can see the other side, there might not be an uproar.

Kicking the ground, I fly high above, turning my vision towards where a village is supposed to be.

Continuing land can be seen after the arrangement of rocks, and further ahead, high stone wall can be seen. Lots of buildings can be seen on the other side of the wall.

It should be more than 10 meters in height.
Is it so that no monster can go in?

There’s also the magic rock formation too.

Since I’m only feeling a bit uncomfortable from it, there might be other monster that can get over it too.

Not just the height, but the area it covers are huge too.

This is no longer at the scale of a village.
It’s a  city.

On the other side of the high stone wall, I managed to caught a glimpse of a showy flag on the upper part of a building.
The inside seems to be very lively.
[T.N: I burst out laughing when one of my machine translate it as gay flag instead]

I get down on the ground, walking towards the opposite direction.
Looking at the vast extending empty land that will continue to expand in the future, I felt much  lonelier than before.

…if it’s like this, it would have been better if I hadn’t seen it.
No no, what are you doing getting depressed for?
I had already decided to continue living a lonely life as a dragon.

〖Dragon Scale powder〗should disappear depending on my next evolution.
As long as I continue raising〖Tiny Hero〗without getting depressed, I might be able to turn into a better race from now on.
Once I turn like that, it might even be possible for me to return to that forest again.

The〖Human Transformation Art〗skill has also level up as well.
Its Lv3 now. If I continue using it repeatedly, it might be possible for the appearance to be more humane.
My maximum MP also increased with my Lv up, so I can maintain it for a longer duration.

The MP consumption for〖Human Transformation Art〗is roughly around 1MP per second.
Because my current maximum value is 192, it would be empty in just a little over three minutes.
However if I continue to evolve, if I can increase my maximum MP to around 600, I can turn into human for 10 minutes.
Though I don’t understand how accurate the real number really is, in case I managed to get〖Auto MP Regeneration〗like the slime, even if I don’t raise my maximum MP, I should be able to increase the effective time considerably.

If it’s 10 minutes, not only can I talk to traveler,  it might even be possible for me to enter the village to see the situation.
While continuing doing that, it would be possible for me to know the circ.u.mstances of the other side after doing it for some times.

Alright, there’s still hope.
For the future purpose, I need to increase my maximum MP as well removing the evil dragon status.
Although I felt like I’m already on the straight path for evil dragon, I’ll manage somehow…. I really want to believe that.
If there’s 360,000 MP, I’ll be able to turn human for 100 hours! Don’t give up, me!
