I saw it, something I never would have wanted to see.
A beast that I have seen in the games I have played. The epitome of strength, brutality and madness.
It made me come to the reality that the world I am in now is not Earth anymore. All this time I was still going easy with everything treating it as if I am in some game.
The wolflike beast that I saw earlier is being held in one of its arms as it uses the other to tear it in half. Just to remind you, the wolflike beast is at least 3 times larger than me, but it wasn't even worth comparing to that Orc.
I thought that Orcs were at least twice the size of a human but the one I am seeing right now is easily 5 times the size. that also makes me realize how gigantic this place is. Even though the Orc is almost 15m in height, it doesn't even reach half the length of this place from the ground to the ceiling.
Does this mean that there are monsters or beast that is larger than the Orc in front of me?
I remain still poking only part of my head enough for me to see the surroundings. Hoping that the Orc is too big for it to notice me. Strangely I was not scared, but I was thinking of how to get the dead beast's body on the ground.
I don't know why the Orc didn't eat it or are they not supposed to eat it?
I decided not to take any risk and pray that the Orc leaves soon so that I can take whatever remains of the beast.
[Stealth Skill learned]
What is this? You mean I can learn skills by doing certain actions?
That is good news for me. More skills, more chances I have to survive. I am still surprised that I am quickly adapting to life in my new body and world.
For now, I'll check what the new skill does while I wait for the Orc to leave.
[Stealth: Improves the ability of hiding and lessens the presence of the user]
Perfect skill for someone like me...
Eventually, the Orc left somewhere far away at least I hope so.
Now, if I calculate it right the distance between me and the dead wolf beast is about 20 to 25m.
Not that long but I will need some time to drag the body near my hole since it is way larger than me.
I still can't get used to the smell and look of the dead beast at all. Will I even be able to eat it? I guess I'll try.
Stealthily I come out of my hole and approach the dead beast, using the rough terrain as hiding places.
I reached it.
I miscalculated. The beast is not 3 times my size but about 5 times my size!
I don't have enough strength to even drag half of the beast. What do I do now? Think, think, think...
[Do you wish to absorb?]
[4:59] [4:58] [4:57].....
It needs 5mins to absorb??? Damn it, if any other beast comes I'll be dead before I even reach my hiding place.
Is this the end for me right here?
HEY, YOU STUPID SYSTEM I thought you were going to lead me to supremacy. How am I supposed to do that now that I am going to become Orc food?
Of course! You can't even do anything! But no worries I am smart enough to outsmart some stupid Orcs.
I got a plan. The beast is big enough for me to hide me and if it doesn't work I have the ultimate skill!!
I hear it coming closer as the sound of the bones the Orc uses as clothing or armour gets louder.
I hide as it comes closer to the body of the dead beast it killed. Did it not eat it before because of some reason and is coming back now to take its meal? YOU stupid Orc! Don't you know that meat is best eaten fresh!!! OF course, you don't cause you stupid!
[Stealth has reached level 2]
NICE!! I need everything I can get.
The Orc is heading towards me or its meal that he forgot to take.
My heart is beating at a rate faster than any hands that have fapped. Above that, I am getting tired and hungry. It might seem effortless to lay down on the ground hiding but I haven't eaten anything in the last 24hrs.
I can feel it right above me. Its shadow looming over me as death stands before as it took a step and walks away...
[Play Dead has reached level 2]
Stop. Let's not waste time and escape as soon as possible. We never know when it may come back again.
[50 Essence Recieved]
[Do you wish to use the available Essence?]
Good timing! Let's see how this Essence works.
Never mind that I need to get some of this meat and head to my hole immediately. I use my claws, cut off whatever meat I can carry, and rush back to my hole before any more trouble arrives.
Finally, I can get some rest. I begin to widen the hole using claws so that I have enough space to keep the meat. Doing so I make the entrance small so that hopefully other monsters don't find me and I am safe while I am in here.
Finally, time to eat. I hope I don't throw up what I eat and even if I want to cook it I don't have any way of making fire and cooking meat in this place is just asking to be eaten instead.
Here goes!! chomp! chomp!...
[Consumed the flesh of Newborn Warg]
[Recieving knowledge on Warg]
[Warg - lesser-class beast type monster containing small traces of Myth Fenrir blood. The Warg is mostly bred by Orcs for hunting. Can advance to only one special evolution- The Blood Warg. Weakness - It loses half of his strength during the day]
I see! I can learn about the creatures as long as I consume their meat. That is useful for me as I am lacking knowledge but the eating part of it is risky.
It is not that bad actually maybe because I am literally a monster too. Now that I have solved my hunger I'll check out how the essence works.
Essence? Use Essence?
[Do you want to use the available Essence]

CLAW - POISON CLAW(50)- STRENGTHEN CLAW(50)- CURVED CLAW(50)
BODY- SUCTION SKIN(20)- ARMORED SKIN(50)- LIGHT SKIN(30)
So I can only upgrade two parts of my body. The skin and my claw. This is hard for me to choose I don't know whether I should upgrade my claws to have a higher chance to kill the monster or to upgrade my body for more survivability. I can know what most of the upgrade does just from their name except for the Curved claws and Suction skin.
[Curved claw: Makes the claw curved to help in climbing walls, to get more grip and impaling]
[Suction skin: Form suction cups on the skin to help stick to the surface of any solid and improve stealth]
Not what I had in mind but it's okay.
The number next to the upgrades must be their cost I think...hmm can I stack two skins at the same? One way to find out.
[Do you wish to upgrade to Suction skin and Light skin]
Nice!! It is possible!
UGHHHH!!! WHAT the hell is this pain?!
It never mentioned any pain or anything.
Haaaa.. it finally stopped.
[Light skin: Makes the body light and agile for faster movement while increasing hardness by a small amount]
[Suction skin: Form suction cups on the skin to help stick to the surface of any solid and improve stealth]
[Stealth skill level + 1]
[Stealth skill has reached level 3/5]
The stealth skill is now showing its max level? or can it be advanced like in the games I played? I have already reached halfway on its level. Looking forward to maxing it out.
I want to check out the changes to my body but let's do that later.
I'm exhausted, time for some sleep. Covering up the hole I loosen my legs and place my body down to the earth.
When I wake up I'll try to hunt for my first prey!!!
[Stealth has reached level 3]Hmm? Nice! Skill level up!But how did it levelled up? I didn't even hide...I get it. What I am doing in this hole is hiding! Does that actually count? This is such a huge opportunity to farm my skill level for my stealth. I should try and see what other skills I can level up in this way.I'll think about that later, I need to hunt today. It's not every day I'll get free food from the Orcs. But engaging in combat means instant death for me based on the monster I have met till now.I'm sure there are other weaker monsters in this place, Right!!?? If not I am totally screwed.I also need a safer place as my shelter, the hole I am staying in now may be safe for now but if I am found it's more like a death trap cause I have no way out.I'm so hungry...Hiding in my shelter there's only one thing on my mind.FOOD!!I'm starting to remember all the delicious foods I have eaten in my previous life,
Checking on what I have saved up during my time here...Skill points: 4Stat points: 1Essence: 100I think I cannot hold off on saving these points up since I need to get stronger to explore and search for a new shelter.Let's check out how the skill points work.[Do you wish to buy new skills?]What! I thought it was for levelling up skills!? But it is for buying skills instead?? I could have survived way easier if I had checked this out earlier. No use regretting now.YES![Available skills]-EVASION: Dodge any attack one time. MP cost: 20 Skill point :3-BLACKOUT: Release a thick and dense gas covering 2m in radius from the source blocking the sight of all inside the gas. MP cost: 15 Skill point: 2-STEEL BODY: Passive skill which reduces damage taken by 10% Skill point:6-PIERCE: Enhances the next attack with a piercing effect that will ignore 20% of armour. MP cost: 10
I haven't thought about it seriously before because I was occupied with more important stuff but are Epic rank monsters that common? Aren't they supposed to be near impossible to find, more like whoever finds them doesn't live to tell the tale but I am now doubting whether Epic rank is that high of a rank at all? In just one day, I came across two Epic rank monsters even though they were newborns they were still Real Epic rank monsters. Epic rank or not, it doesn't change the fact that I am going to kill that baby dragon today. No pain no gain as people use to say in my world or do I say my previous world? Although I am worried there will be more pain than gain or quite possibly pain only, I was a person who lived for overpowered skills, I cannot live without having anything overpowered in my arsenal of skills or abilities. And one thing that could possibly give me something overpowered is killing an Epic rank monster, not just any monster but a Dragon. Maybe a title like the Dragon
[Upgrading to Armoured skin]Ughhhh!! I feel that I will have more chances of dying whenever I upgrade myself rather than from monsters!!When will it not hurt every time I get an upgrade…. They have said in the past that great risk brings great reward and of course that is true. But I don't know whether it is worth it at all. I hoped to minimise as much risk as possible, circumstances have forced me into being aggressive and thankfully it has paid off![Condition for evolution not met]Hmm? What? What am I missing here? Is that not the last upgrade I can take… let me check my status.[status]Species: Newborn Imp(4/5)Exp:44/50HP:70 CON: 5 (1 CON= 10HP)DEF:23 DEX: 3 (1DEX= 5 DEF)A
The moment the shell hit the floor, the baby dragon opened its eyes as it awakens from its slumber.I could feel the pressure it emitted as if a giant weight has pressed down on me, all I could do was to remain as still as possible. My senses were telling me to go and run away as fast as I can. Maybe me being a lesser demon affected me. I hesitated whether I should just give up and run away but I wanted to try at least once, u never know until u try right?However, it only looks at me once before it closed its eyes and resume what it was doing a moment ago. I instantly had one thought, maybe the dragon is in some process of evolution and cannot move? I could be totally wrong and fuck myself up but I believe that it is true.Before anything I want to see if analyze will show anything to me. that would be the safer and smarter thing to do.Analyze![Epic rank - Newborn Falak dragon][Offspring of the Epic Rank Falak Dragon.

"W-what's going on here?!"Someone shouted. Geometrical patterns, just like a magic circle you'd see in anime, formed on the floor of the classroom.Then, in the following instant, the space around them changed – turning into a large ground with a large circular plate with unknown symbols.An unknown number of people out of nowhere appeared on top of the circle as the archimages finished the ritual."Hurraaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"The people, citizens, everyone was on their knees as they shouted in unison. The otherworldly heroes were their hope. For every generation, they were told the stories of heroes, of how they slew the monsters of the dark, of how they protected the empire, of how they sacrificed their lives for the people. Instilled on each citizen was a deep sense of respect and honour for the so-called heroes. And today was such a day where they would get to see a glimpse of their heroes."..eh?'One moment they were si
It's been roughly 3 hrs since I started converting the high tier essence to normal essence.[5 secs remaining].........[Coversion complete][Gained 5000 essence]Niceuuuu!It is enough to get two skills at most. I didn't hope for much but I was hoping for it to be much higher than 5000. Since 1% is 5000 essence then all the essence available here is about 500000??? Damn what a huge waste!I have not realised it before but once I looked into the skills section again, I can't decide which skills to choose.One way is to take the Biokinesis which cost 4000 essences since I don't even need to injure the dragon's exterior and directly caused harm to its internal organs. But can it really do enough damage to kill it? most likely not.The other way is to take poison generation and amplify which cost 1000 and 1500 essence each. I can strengthen myself to penetrate the dragon's thick hide and apply
