My Werewolf System - chapter-220-pawn-point
Gary”™s hands were tense around the sink top. He looked at the packet of
dye as he had tried the process a few times already. It didn”™t matter
if he used the black dye or the golden one. The high schooler only got to
enjoy his new look for a few seconds.
Every time, Gary would get the same message from the system. In the end,
he gave up. One, because it was consuming Energy in order to restore him
to his â€کoriginal selfâ€™ and there just seemed to be no hope past it
â€کYOU DAMN SYSTEM, THIS ISNâ€™T MY ORIGINAL SELF!!! Have you ever
encountered anyone who had green as their natural colour? â€¦should I
just go bald? Just get it all off, or will the system just regrow my hair
back using Energy bringing back to my natural self againâ€™ Gary started
When thinking about it, it wasnâ€™t the strangest thing. Even Jaydenâ€™s
hair had grown when transforming, and when he reverted to his human form,
his hair did as well.
â€کBut thisâ€¦ am I really going to have green hair for the rest of my
The teenager wondered when exactly the system had decided on this being
his natural hair colour. Was it back when he had received the systemâ€¦
or did it perhaps temper with his body when his Grade had gone from Pawn
to Knight? He had grown taller and his muscle mass had increased, so
would it be really unbelievable if it had changed his hair colour?
Aware that dwelling on this matter wouldnâ€™t help him in any way, Gary
decided to leave it for now and started to get ready to head over to
Burnham. It was getting late, and if he didnâ€™t head over soon, the
others might just head back.
In fact, based on the group chat, they all wanted to ask him questions
about what happened. News of the red colour gangâ€™s demise hadnâ€™t
spread just yet. Today, he wouldnâ€™t be wearing his gang clothes. It
would bring too much attention and as Kai had explained todayâ€™s job
scope was simply scouting.
So while picking a set of normal clothes, and once again a hoodie. Gary
was nearly ready to leave. He had been looking forward to seeing the
reaction of the Howlers when he would show up with a brand-new look, but
unfortunately it was not to be.
Before going, though, Gary had made a decision after seeing Jayden.
â€کI donâ€™t know if itâ€™s just him, or Altered in general, but at least
Jayden was clearly stronger than me. If Kirk is also that strongâ€¦
Iâ€™ll have no chance against him. So far, Iâ€™ve kept my stat points
ready for my opponents, just in case I needed them. However, if all
fights will be this hectic, I wonâ€™t be able to use that point.â€™
Unlike his stat point, the Pawn point he had received after consuming
Billy had many uses.
[Would you like to convert your Pawn point into skill point(s)?]
Gary wasnâ€™t sure he was doing the right thing. According to the message
he had received when gaining the Pawn point, he could use it to upgrade
his body into the next Grade, upgrade skills with it, or stats. So far,
the high schooler hadnâ€™t seen the benefit in doing that.
Stat points he could always gain from Levelling up or consuming peopleâ€¦
well as a Knight Grade Werewolf, he would apparently have to eat beasts
as the system claimed.
Beasts might no longer exist in the world, but he could still Level up in
other ways, as the system had shown him. The most useful thing therefore
seemed to be to convert the Pawn point into a skill point, so he could
strengthen his Claw Drain to the next level.
[3 skill points have been obtained]
[Skill points can be used to upgrade certain existing skills or to
purchase new ones]
[New tab has been added; Skill Shop]
Gary was baffled at this sudden development. He would have already been
happy to simply upgrade his Claw Drain skill to Level 2, but his system
had blessed him with a new tab. Whatâ€™s more, his one Pawn point had
been converted into three skill points, instead of one. The teenager was
curious if he could change them back, yet he received no option to do so.
â€کIf this was a game, then I would usually get a worse deal when
convertingâ€¦ Does that mean the Pawn point would have been better used
to upgrade that Grade thingie?â€™ Gary wondered, but the Werewolf System
simply kept him guessing. Unfortunately, it wasnâ€™t as if there was
another Werewolf around for him to gain another point.
Curious, Gary checked out the new Skill shopâ€¦ only to be vastly
[Claw Drain – Forced Level Up – 1 point]
[Berserker – 1 Skill point]
[Magnetic Howl – 2 Skill Points]
[Last Stand – Cost – 3 Skill Points]
Seeing that the Claw Drain claimed to be a Forced Level Up, Gary felt
reassured that just like games, it should be possible to level it up
naturally, most likely by using it more.
â€کSeriously? What kind of shop doesnâ€™t say anything about their own
skills?â€™ Gary questioned. â€کThis seems more like a back alley type of
deal with some ruff looking tattooed man with a bad attitude who simply
tells me â€کtake it, or leave itâ€™.
Alas, not even this accusation of foul play earned him any reaction from
the system. There was no information at all, which made the high schooler
think that this system seriously sucked. If it was a game developer, Gary
would have already been making a complaint.
He might have even understood it for the two new skills, but hadnâ€™t he
already been told what Berserker could do? What was the point of playing
With three skill points, Gary could theoretically purchase Berserker and
Magnetic Howl. Two skills should be better than one, allowing him to be
more flexibleâ€¦ this might have been the logical choice. Alas, Gary
wasnâ€™t the most logical person there was, and something drew him to the
Perhaps it was the fact that it cost the most amount of skill points.
Surely the higher the cost, the better skill he would get. Maybe it would
give him something that would let him deal with an Altered or an Altered
Hunter he might run into at some point in the future.
[Are you sure you would like to select the skill â€کLast Stand?â€™]
[Yes / No]
â€کScrew it.â€™ Gary thought as he selected [Yes] on the menu
