o now with this scrawny man.”

 

“Ah, I see.”

 

Although the three survivors sent gestures of regret as we parted ways, they didn't really detain me or anything.
Instead, their speed of retreat was quite fast.

 

I might seem impressive to them, but at the same time, they must have felt uncomfortable.

 

Still, I couldn't have chosen 'fear'.
I have to think this is the best, well…

 

After confirming that the group of survivors had moved far enough, I spoke to the scrawny man, who was still prostrating.

 

“Hey, you.
Come with me.”

 

“Yes, yes! I understand!”

 

Immediately, the scrawny man got up from his spot and followed closely behind me.

 

He had a face that was stiff like a recruit with determination to do anything.

 

 

The emotions that guy holds towards me are fear, disgust, and awe.

 

Among them, I chose awe, so the feeling of awe he had towards me must have become even stronger.

 

“This should do.”

 

The place I brought the scrawny man to had relatively sparse grass on the ground and was filled with soft soil.

 

“Scrawny.”

 

“Yes, yes!”

 

“Write your status here on the ground.”

 

“Yes!”

 

Hastily picking up a stick, the scrawny man started writing letters on the soil.

 

[Name: Choi Junwoo] [LV: 1] [Level: 22]

 

[Traits]

 

-Monster Domination [S]

 

[Stats]

 

[Strength: 9] [Agility: 13] [Intelligence: 18] [Magic Power: 24]

 

“…What's this?”

 

“Yes?”

 


“Stats.
What is this?”

 

It was true that I asked him to do it to check if my status was different from others, but I never imagined it would be so different.

 

There were countless things I wanted to point out.

 

The fact that there was a window called ‘Stats’ that I had never seen in my life.

 

The fact that he had two levels.

 

The fact that others mentioned having a level of 10, but he alone had a level of 22.

 

To compare, here's how my status window looks:

 

Name: Kim Jun-ho [LV: 5]

Attributes:
– Regression [EX]
– Awe [C]

 

Compared to that bastard, my status window was truly pitiful.

 

“…I don't quite understand what you're saying.”

 

However, the scrawny man gave me a clueless look as if he didn't know what was wrong.

 

But, he seems to have already guessed that there's something strange.

 

“Well, first of all, why do you have two levels?”

 

“Ah, that…
well…”

 

The scrawny man frowned instead of explaining.

 

“Wait…
what should I call you?”

 

“Just call me whatever, you bastard.”

 

“Then I'll call you 'Boss'…”

 

He said and then drew a circle just above [Level: 22].

 

“It's 'normal' level.
But…” 

 

This time, he drew a circle above [LV: 1].

 

“The Boss is probably confused due to not having this one…”

 

In reality, it was the opposite; I had ‘LV’ but not ‘Level’.

 

However, I nodded solemnly without saying a word, managing my expression.

 

“I obtained ‘LV’ by defeating a huge goblin.
In fact, I landed the finishing blow myself.”

 

“…Explain in detail.”

 

“After defeating the huge goblin…
'Legendary Venture!' appeared, and I gained a second level.
All my stats also increased by 5 each.”

 

“…”


 

“Oh, when I press this, it says 'First to defeat a mutant goblin.'”

 

“…”

 

I was speechless.

 

What I considered my level all this time was actually not a level.

 

Legendary Venture… It seems I unknowingly achieved five achievements.

 

If you think about it, it makes sense.

 

The level that didn't increase no matter how many goblins I killed suddenly increased by 1 at an unexpected time.

 

But the frustrating part is, why didn't it notify me?

 

It's not like I turned off the notifications, so why didn't it inform me? Why do I have to learn about the functions of the status window through someone else's mouth?

 

“When did you get the basic ‘level’?”

 

“Well…
I got it when I first killed a goblin in the thicket.”

 

“…Is that so? Just wait a moment.”

 

I could sense that something major went wrong, but I wouldn't know until I checked it myself.

 

With trembling hands, I opened my status window and pressed hard on the empty space next to [Name: Kim Junho] [LV: 5].

 

Messages immediately covered the screen, as if saying, ‘Wait.’

The wall of messages continued endlessly below.

 

Due to the severe headache, I unconsciously touched my forehead with my hand.

 

I was sure.
The basic level and stats that everyone else obtains… The only reason I can't obtain them is one and only:

 

“Damn it…”

 

Regression [EX]

 

It's because of this damn bastard.
