‘Sage’s Wisdom, would it be possible to gain experience with my Avatar.?’

<Any experience gained by your Avatar is indeed valid. However, if the level of the opponents is too low, it will be a negligible amount.>

It was an answer which followed common sense.

‘Then what happens if my Avatar dies?’

<When the Avatar dies, the spell is permanently deleted, but there are no negative effects on the main body.>

The fact that it could experience death without any risks was a nice advantage. I now had to focus on my important questions because wasn’t sure how many I had left.

‘Sage’s Wisdom, what are Identities in the Status page ?’

<Identities are character choices that you can swap between .In order to gain a new Identity, you have to kill a reincarnator and absorb their Karma.>

‘Karma? It seemed to have mentioned it the first time around. Hmm… maybe it was the reason Soleste had three Identities, he must have killed at least two other reincarnators. Explain Karma.’

<Karma is absorbed when you gain experience. It affects the direction of your evolution, acquisition of skills, titles, etc.>

‘Explain the effects of titles.’

<You can choose to have an Active title, once in use it can affect what karma you receive.>

‘Karma… I still didn’t have a good grasp on what it was, but it appeared to have an impact on almost everything. I should keep trying to get a better understanding of it. Oh right, I learned that I could choose an Active title, that’s new.’

I took a look at my Status page and decided on my skill.

[You have learned Avatar Lv1]

‘I wonder what my Avatar would look like? Sage’s Wisdom, explain the appearance of an Avatar.’

<The Avatar’s appearance can take any form you visualize. Once determined, barring some specialized skills, the appearance is usually fixed.>

<The power of Sage’s Wisdom has been used up, it will now enter a period of hibernation.>

Although this time around the explanations were a bit better, I was still left disappointed and wanting more.

‘I’ll have to be even more cautious in my selection next time around, I still have so many questions.’

I brought Gwyn over to the teepee Ian was sleeping in, and then headed back to the termite’s nest. On the way, I took a look at my Status page.

I decided on Wizard of the Pit as my Active title, keeping the rest as Inactive.

‘Hmm… what kind of Avatar would I want? Oh, how about that?’

I kept the image of the Avatar I wanted in my mind and cast the spell.

“Create Avatar!”

I felt my mind drift outwards, like a first out of body experience, I felt like I was floating among the stars.

“Amazing!”

When my conscience finally awoke within the Avatar, I saw a golden skeleton lying down on the floor before me.

“What… My body..can I really fall asleep on the floor in such a position?”

The pitch of my voice was slightly higher than usual.

I felt around with my hands, exploring my new body.

“It’s big and soft…”

I opened my Status page.

‘Amazon… I like it but,

what’s Decoy?’

I had found an unfamiliar title so I tried to activate it.’

‘What?’

I could see that for the most part my skills had changed but my titles remained.

‘Oh, what is Decoy? Is it possible to hide my status?, I feels like it could be quite useful.’

I looked carefully for a long time before messaging Alpeon telepathically.

‘Alpeon, come alone to the room with the World’s Roots.’

‘Yes, Lord’

‘Tak Tak Tak, Kieeek’

When she walked into the room, she saw my golden skeleton body lying awkwardly on the floor, with a stranger standing nearby. Immediately, she began emitting hostility and was ready to pounce, but I held up my hand and messaged him once again.

‘Stop it, its me.’

‘Lord?’

‘Don’t worry, this is my Avatar.’

‘I see, forgive me Lord for the misunderstanding.’

Not a problem, that’s why I called for you first. Please explain the situation to the others.

‘Yes Lord’

I walked to the corner of the room and sat down before using “Avatar Flip”, allowing me to regain control of my ArchLich’s body. I could see my Avatar’s body sitting down motionless.

‘Alpeon, move my body to a safe location, and arrange to feed it the golden nectar once a day.’

Shortly after a giant termite came in to carry my Avatar away.

‘Good, now gather the troops once more.’

‘Yes Lord’

In but a flash, my minions were assembled within the room and we were ready for our second expedition.

‘This time I will kill twice as many.’

“Inferno!”

This time around I jumped in fearlessly, Already confident in my ability to deal with the Void Scuttles. After passing through the whole, I was greeted with a Swarm of those critters. Countless of the were amassed before my eyes.

‘Just how many of them are out there? Well, it doesn’t matter!’

I used my Flame Mastery to widen the AoE of Meteor, stretching it out to its maximum.

Quazik! Quazik!

Hundreds of them had approached my body and attempted to nibble at me. I Wasn’t particularly worried because while looking at my HP bar, I had established that one bite from them only caused me -1 damage.

“Meteor!”

The only problem with the spell was its long cast time which was about 3~4 seconds.

“Chain lightning! Chain lightning! Chain lightning! Chain lightning! Chain lightning!”

All the Scuttles which had engulfed my body now littered the floor, sprawled on their backs.

“Meteor!”

Because of my MP regeneration and incredibly vast Mana pool, I could keep spamming my spells like this for hours, and had just killed hundreds of these critters.

[+10,478 experience points]
[Acquired ⦅Title: Void Scuttle’s Grief Lv6⦆]
[+20,956 experience points]
[+41,912 experience points]

[Acquired ⦅Title: Void Scuttle’s Grief Lv9⦆]
[Level increased 1 ➢ 114]

IAn incredible number which would be far too difficult to spell out appeared before my eyes. Still, I had only achieved level 114, my level didn’t rise as easily as I had expected.

‘Just how many monsters did Soleste hunt?’

I continued on like this for some time, and after 2 tireless days of massacring the Void Scuttles, I hit level 410.

‘Lord, Bianca has informed that outsiders have been detected along the border.’

‘Is it the League?’

‘It is still unclear, they are camping at the edge of the cliff.’

‘Okay, then block the hole, Is it nighttime now?’

‘Yes’

I was encountering less and less Void Scuttles. At first there had been thousands of them but after having killed so many, there were only a couple hundred left and they were mostly scattered about. The amount of experienced I received was becoming progressively smaller, and it was hardly worth the grind.

‘Oh right, I still haven’t settled the evolution for my termites and spiders.’

I felt a bit bad, I had delayed their long awaited evolution just to satisfy my selfish need for experience and leveling up.

‘Well, that’s it for hunting the Void Scuttles.’

I gave the remaining critters a mocking bow, they had after all been a great source of experience points.

With the help of my flying termites, I returned to my Pit, and proceeded to plug up the hole with little trouble.

‘Let’s get going Alpeon. Have a squadron of Flying termites carry our new guests over and have some fetch Roslin and reunite her with Matilda.

After becoming an ArchLich, my level was now what I considered satisfactory. Of course, I was still not qualified to be Soleste’s opponent, but I was confident in dealing with just a handful of League members.

If I had been thinking carefully, I would have remembered that Soleste who was still much stronger than the current me, was also sealed by them. However, everything had been a smooth ride for me so far, and my arrogance led me to underestimate these newcomers.
