- Chapter 13 - Villager A Really Wants to Fly
Now, I was back in Frissen after helping a certain wyvern in the Valley of the Flying Dragon, and I just want you to see this.
Skills: 【Concealment】【Appraisal】【Alchemy】【Wind Magic】.
Place of residence: Ruhrden
Cash on hand: 3,009,012
Magic power: D
The blessing wasn’t【Wind Magic】 but 【Wind God】, and 【Wind Magic】 had been added to my skills. Moreover, even though I haven’t done anything, my magic power had gone up two levels from F to D.
I’m not too sure about the【Wind God】 blessing, but if we’re talking about a D level in magic power, If I recall correctly, I think even Markus only had around this much when they were condemning Anastasia at the academy. Ah, just in case you forgot, Markus was the son of the kingdom’s court magician.
Well, anyway, since it’s a god’s blessing, I’m sure it’s amazing. And thanks to the addition of the 【Wind Magic】skill, I can now use the wind magic I wanted.
With that said, I’d like to move on to the next plan to change the future scenario. My next goal is to secure a means of transportation.
You may be wondering what I’m talking about, but I want you to think about it like this.
The fastest means of transportation in this world is by horse.
Even if you keep changing horses and ride all day, at best, you can only travel hundreds of kilometers a day.
An ordinary horse-drawn carriage would only be able to travel a few dozen kilometers a day.
But what if there was a way to travel at a speed of several hundred kilometers per hour in this world?
Yeah, that’s something I want to do.
So, the goal of this mission is to create a glider. But rather than a normal glider, I want to make one powered by wind magic.
To put it simply, a glider is like an airplane that is insanely light and can fly without an engine.
I’ve been an aeronautical engineer in my past life, and I know enough about the technical aspects of a plane so of course I can fly one.
And so I started making a blueprint of the plane.
The fuselage is cylindrical in shape but I changed it a bit so it could shoot out wind magic to propel itself. I also used a wyvern magic stone as a catalyst to activate the magic.
I set up three wheels at the bottom so I could take off smoothly… And hopefully also land back down.
I flattened the front part of the fuselage so I could operate the glider from there. I’m planning on using my right hand to supply the engines with magic power, and use my left hand to manipulate magic to control the tail rudders.
The airfoil shape of the main wings will be orthodox and streamlined.
The material will be mainly wyvern bones membranes.
Then, using the 【Alchemy】 skill, I put the blueprint I made into a magic circle and gathered the necessary materials to refine the glider.
But really, this 【Alchemy】skill is so overpowered.
In the game, Amy could quickly create a “comfortable carriage that doesn’t shake”, so I expected to be able to do something like this, but I didn’t expect it could completely recreate a blueprint’s design by using a magic circle this easily. I thought it was possible, but I still couldn’t help but be surprised.
Now, the magic circle is done. The shape of the glider, with the exception of the wind magic engine, is something that has been proven to fly in my memory in my previous life, so there should be no problem.
So, I came to an open area some distance from the village.
The grass is overgrown, so I use the wind magic I just learned to cut down the grass at once.
“Mana, the root of all things, gather in my hands and be the wind that cuts down my enemies. Wind Cutter!”
Because of the【Wind Magic】skill, the chant magically appeared in my head.
After cutting down the grass, I used【Alchemy】to flatten the ground and make a 500-meter-long runway.
Thanks to my magic power being raised to D, I didn’t feel tired at all even after using this much. This was amazing!
Now, when the runway is finished, I take out the magic circle I wrote on a piece of paper.
Then, I placed two wyvern magic stones, a membrane and one femur to activate the magic circle.
When I activated the skill, the magic circle started to emit light. The light gradually molded itself in the air and when the light disappeared, it created a glider just as the blueprint says.
Thanks to my cheat skills, I hopped inside the cockpit and fastened my seatbelt.
Then I grab the handle with my right hand and activate the wind magic engine.
“Mana, the source of all things. Gather in my hands and become the wind.”
【Wind Magic】activates and the magic circle carved into the magic stone blows out a powerful gust of wind.
A tremendous gust of wind blows out of the engine and the glider begins to accelerate rapidly.
“Ugh, I’m going to throw up…”
The g-force was so intense that I felt like my body was being crushed.
And yet, the next thing I knew was that the glider was flying through the air.
“Whoaa! It worked!”
The glider was gaining altitude very quickly.
The trees in the forest were getting smaller and smaller, and we were getting higher than even the mountains around us.
This feels good. I haven’t been up in the sky in so long.
Using my left hand, I used【Alchemy】 to make the horizontal tail rudder return to a level position, the glider balanced off to a stable flight.
Since there was no such thing as a GPS, I flew towards the royal capital, Lurden, relying only on the street roads that looked like small lines drawn on the ground.
This was definitely way faster than a carriage.
And it felt really, really good. With me onboard, the glider went over city after city.
“Oh, isn’t that the castle of Lurden?”
I muttered to myself, pleased to see a small, familiar castle in the distance.
The distance I had travelled by carriage for days had been returned to in just a few hours.
Technology is also overpowered, huh?
It was time to prepare for the landing, when I realized something important.
“Wait, where am I supposed to land this thing?
There were no seas or rivers big enough to make an emergency landing near Lurden. The streets weren’t wide enough either, and there were people passing by the plains.
Then I realized something even more important.
I didn’t even have a parachute.
I flew around the area trying to find a suitable spot, and just when my mana was starting to run low, I found a lake deep within the northeast forest where the ruins were.
You couldn’t get to this area in the game, but the northeast forest was a pretty low-levelled area with only horned rabbits and, though rarely seen, goblins, so it shouldn’t be too dangerous.
‘Okay, let’s make an emergency landing here.’
And so I circled around and gradually lost altitude. I had already stopped using magic so the engines were essentially off and I was just gliding.
The glider was gradually losing speed and altitude.
The lake was kind of elliptical in shape, so I adjusted my flight path to enter the lake from the longer side.
“Damn. I’ve never done an emergency landing before, not even at training!”
I swore unintentionally, but this was all my mistake. Be that as it may, it would be really embarrassing to die here after focusing on the future scenario this much.
I focused all my attention on controlling the glider and aimed to make the water a landing track.
The glider skimmed over the trees and descended into the lake.
The entry angle wasn’t something I was used to, but I did my best to adjust the horizontal tail rudder. I also pushed against the force of the glider with my wind magic.
I should have put flaps on the wings if this was going to happen. I could have slowed it down more!
The glider landed on the water and a large splash of water burst out.
But the lake wasn’t long enough and the glider flew across the lake and off to the other side. The glider’s tail bumped into the terrain causing the glider to point up.
With a loud boom, the glider’s belly crashed straight into a tree.
Thankfully, the water had taken off a lot of the momentum and so the tree had, though violently, stopped the glider.
I didn’t get thrown out of the plane because of my seatbelt, but every single part of me hurt.
It wasn’t anything fatal, at least, but using this glider again was going to be impossible.
As I was thinking that, the glider turned into something like fine sand and disappeared. Apparently, things made with the 【Alchemy】 skill are like this when they break.
”Ah, I failed.”
After muttering that, I used my【Concealment】skill to walk towards the town of Lurden.
Although I had successfully flown with my glider, I had lost a lot of precious material and gained a lot of scrapes and bruises.
