“Do I really need to follow every action to the letter?”
“No, you don’t need to perfectly replicate all of your previous actions. As long as you don’t miss any significant events then it should be fine.”
“Yes, but I’m still not sure whether Metatron can interfere with the future. I suppose that we can only find out in the upcoming events and see if they match up with what your memories were.”
I rummaged through the skeleton bones and picked myself a decent dagger and shield.
I then opened my Status.

“I’ve got quite the ordinary stats.”
It was similar to what I remember having when I first woke up as a skeleton so long ago, except that I kept some rainbow coloured unique skills.
“So what was the next step, in order to catch the Tomb Rats I collected some moss, right?”
I went around gathering a bunch of them moss and placed it in a dead end cave.
“Good, that seems to be enough of them, Lena seal the exit with a Rohim’s shield.”
I waited for the Tomb Rats to come and eat the moss while I pretended to pose as a dead skeleton.
Thud! Thud! Thud!
After I had caught fourteen of them, the Tyrant of the Tomb made an appearance.
“Oh, how nostalgic, It’s been a while mister Tyrant. Just wait a moment, Lena?”
She lowered the shield for a brief moment allowing the Tyrant to enter, before putting it back up and trapping him inside.
“Good, now that they are all together why not deal with them all at once.”
I gave them all shallow cuts, until their HP had all but bottomed out.
I made quick work of the Tyrant and the fourteen Tomb Rats and the same time, giving me a ton of experience.
‘What was my next evolution, Skeleton Wizard?’
I opened up my Status and selected the Wizard as my next evolution. I then went on to try and recall what my next steps were.
I headed towards the Tyrant’s hideout and took the magically imbued dagger from the pile of treasure, before crawling through the hole and into the next stage.
“Wow, it’s been a while. I wonder if Soleste will still be in that place. Well, I guess even if he is I shouldn’t visit at my current level. I went throughout the Catacombs and arrived before the room which had been filled with treasure.
“Wasn’t it here that I met Gwyn?”
“Johra, I sense that the breakpoint is near.”
After listening to Lena I opened up the door and stepped into the room.
Despite searching through the loot extensively, I couldn’t find and signs of the glass in which Gwyn was supposed to be sealed in.
“Well this is definitely a change from the future I had known. Well I guess it isn’t a big deal if Gwyn isn’t around… oh wait, wasn’t it her who saved Ian. If without Gwyn, I might have let them die all. It was Gwyn’s compassion which drove me to save them.”
I walked out of the room equipped with my magical dagger, shield and a cape.
“I hope Gwyn is free and flying around happily right now.”
I made a small prayer for Gwyn’s sake as I sat down in the room guarded by Gargoyles, waiting for Ian’s party to arrive.
“Should I save all the party members this time around? No, perhaps then Ian and I wouldn’t have the same relationship….”
I was struggling with the morality of it all when I heard a voice.
“Gillian is it true that there are heaps of treasure here?”
“Yes, when I came about four months ago I wasn’t able to explore too deeply because of the number of skeletons but I’m sure there’s a bunch of treasure.”
“My subclass is Historian and I can guarantee that what Gillian said was true.”
“Sigh… Pirate, I already regret coming to these old and smelly Catacombs, You better be right about all that treasure because if you’ve tricked me, I’ll tell your wife that you cheated on her with Lyllian last year.”
“Oh no, please don’t Azelin will kill me!”
“So quickly show me where that treasure is, do you have any idea how much it costs to hire a priest these days? It’s not an amount that some small fries like you can afford to pay.”
After hearing their nostalgic conversation, I felt a bit bad knowing what fate was in store for them.
Shortly after the Gargoyles shook themselves awake and the battle began.
“Johra would you like to teleport them?”
“Is it possible?”
“Yes, we can move them to a camp created by Machina.”
“Okay, but do it right before they are about to die.
“Sure, but please make a dummy corpse to replace them with.
“Good idea, Material Creation!”
Luckily I still had some of my more advanced abilities so at the last second we teleported them out with a magic circle created by Lena, and I replaced them with a fake corpse to fool their party members.
At some point it was only Ian and Melinda left, along with the bloodied dummy corpses of their companions.
“Guess it’s my turn now right?”
I got up and ran towards the Gargoyles.
I stabbed the two Gargoyles in their vital points and they immediately crumbled into pieces of rock.
I shook the dust of fmy cape while Ian and Melinda stared at me wide eyed. They had been facing death just moments ago, but were suddenly saved out of nowhere. The two women fell down unconscious to the ground, shocked by the sudden turn of events.
“Hmm… Melinda, we kind of had a bad history.”
It might have all originated from a misunderstanding, but I still wasn’t easy to forgive her betrayal.
“It’s fine Lena, we can let Melinda off.”
In the past she had already paid for that betrayal with her life, so we can consider the debt settled.
Melinda was then sent off to the camp set up by Machina, while I tended to the unconscious Ian.
After stocking her with more than sufficient food and water, I left the Catacombs and headed for the cave.
“Is it now time to face the dragon?”
After waiting for a short while I finally heard it stomping its way toward me.
“Can I not kill it again, Lena? Is the Machina’s place seperate?”
“They get sent kind of unconscious status. ”
“Okay, then let’s take that guy as well.”
“Isn’t it a bit big?”
Thud! Thud! Thud!
As soon at it caught sight of me it sped toward me greedily, intent of having me for a snack.
“I guess it’s normal behaviour for a dragon.”
I easily trapped it with the Rohim Shield and sent to my seperate space, before then proceeding toward his nest.
“Ah, it looks like there is once again only a single egg left.”
Taking it with me I walked through the long tunnel, taking me half a day before I finally arrived back at the Pit, finding it to be exactly as I remembered it in my memories.
“Ah~ my long lost Pit!”
The termites crawled their way towards me and after a short four hour long battle I once again regained my title as Wizard of the Pit.
‘I can’t believe it. I, losing to such a weak undead!’
“Sorry mister King, but I can’t keep you alive if I want to regain possession of this place.”
Killing him off I once again received the status of King of the Pit.
‘Did you call for me great Lord?’
Alpeon replied with her telepathic message which I had not heard in quite some time.
“Have you been well?”
“Ha ha ha!”
I used my Resurrection Song to bring back the King termite and housed him with Machina.
I then once again proceeded to get Bianca and her Arachne’s to bend the knee, before moving on to Nymue’s lake.
“Do you know me?”
“You have such good intel, here take this sword.”
I once again held Excalibur in my hand. It was the sword I had last created as a God and perhaps one of the strongest Artifacts in existence.
“Hu hu… I finally got you back.
I released the limiters I had previously set on it, using nothing but my bony skeleton fingers.
Excalibur’s full potential was unleashed.
[Indestructible LvMax] [Spacetime Control LvMax] [Return LvMax] [Extreme Destruction LvMax]
In retrospect it was insane of Abaddon to put such skills in the sword.
When we had been working together to build Skyfather, he had helped enchant Excalibur. It had originally been an incredible sword, but after combining Abaddon powers it had grown beyond imagining.
“Wait, how were you able to unleash the swords full potential? It was said that not even the Gods were able to do so!”
Nymue asked, unable to believe what had occured before her.
“Well… it’s because I’m the one who made it.”
