In the outskirts of the forest a wormhole suddenly appeared and from it a man came out screaming like a maniac, that man is Jacob after his conversation with GOD.
"AAAGGGGH! *THUD*.....ughhh I thought I'd die again back there. Where am I?" after looking around for a while Jacob realized he's in a forest of another world.
"Hot damn, I really made it in another world full of monsters, cocky nobles and horrible health and sanitation. Let's see, GOD says I have a system maybe it'll show up when I say 'System Open'." As soon he said that a floating system interface showed up in front of Jacob and introduced itself in a androgynous monotone voice.
[Greetings Host, I am the Weapons System entrusted to you to aid you in your travels, whether it is melee or ranged the system has a variety of weapons that can be used as long as you have the necessary points called 'System Points' or SP for short to purchase the weapon of your choice in the shop icon.]
"Wow no kidding, it really does look like a 'Weapons System'!" Jacob yelled as he eyed all the weapons that can be purchased only to cough blood later because, "WHAT THE HELL HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO AFFORD ANY OF THESE!" Jacob found out that even a simple pistol costs about 100-1000 SP while his current SP is a big fat 0.
"System, is there a mistake? How can I have 0 SP doesn't that mean I can't use you?!" snapped Jacob.
[Host does not need to worry because GOD sent you a parting gift in your inventory, please select the 'Inventory' icon next to the 'Shop' icon and click the 'Beginner's Package'.] the system says in a calm voice.
"Oh right! I forgot about that, let's see here *click* 'Beginner's Package' *click*"
DO YOU WANT TO OPEN?
[BEGINNER'S PACKAGE OPENED! RECEIVED: M14 Rifle (Scoped), 7.62mm NATO x10 20-round magazine, M1911 Pistol, .45 ACP x8 7-round magazine, M6 Bayonet (With Scabbard), Tactical Vest (Camo), Combat Uniform (Camo), Basic Healing Potion x4, Skill: Language Comprehension, Skill: Appraisal, Skill: Map, 8000 SP]
"THANK YOU GOD! I thought I was done for there, now let's see if I can equip them with my system." *click* *click* "Wow it worked!" Jacob says as he now looks like someone who is ready for jungle combat.
"Now let's see about the skils *click*"
[THREE SKILLS DETECTED! DOES HOST WANT TO LEARN THEM ALL?
"YES! *click* ARRGGHH AGAIN?" At this moment, Jacob felt an excruciating pain in his head that caused him to writhe helplessly in the ground for 5 minutes before the pain subsided.
"Ah, son of a bitch, at least tell me the side effects beforehand system." Jacob said.
[APOLOGIES TO THE HOST BUT YOU ACTED WITHOUT INQUIRING THE SYSTEM ON THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR ACTIONS. HOST IS ADVISED TO ASK BEFOREHAND ON THE EFFECTS OF THE SKILLS BEFORE LEARNING THEM.]
"Smart ass aren't ya? Fine, system let's test the Map skill before deciding things from here on out."
[ACKNOWLEDGED, SKILL: MAP IS NOW ACTIVATED TO DEACTIVATE JUST SAY "DEACTIVATE MAP" IN YOUR MIND.] The System says as a pop-up appeared on the lower right vision of Jacob that shows a radius of 500 meters with a blue dot in the middle and a few red and white dots scattered around. There is also map that covers an entire region at the front which is a bit transparent.
"Hmm. the blue dot is obviously me with the red ones indicating enemies but what are the white ones?"
[HOST, THE MINI-MAP DISCERNS RED AS HOSTILE, GREEN AS FRIENDLY, AND WHITE AS NEUTRAL AND CAN STAY ON THE LOWER RIGTH SIDE TO NOT HINDER YOUR VISION. THE MAP THAT OCCUPIES MOST OF YOUR VISION IS THE MAIN MAP AND WILL NOT DISAPPEAR UNLESS YOU DEACTIVATE IT. BEGINNING TUTORIAL PLEASE HEAD TOWARDS THE NEAREST HOSTILE.]

Quest Failure: Death]
"FIRST QUEST GET! It's like a game tutorial but if I die then there's no do-overs. System what does 'SHOP: LOGISTICS' mean? Don't I already have the 'SHOP' icon?
[REPLYING TO HOST. 'SHOP:LOGISTICS' CREATES A NEW SET WHERE HOST CAN BUY ALL THINGS NECESSARY TO MAINTAIN YOUR HEALTH. SHOULD YOU ACQUIRE IT THE SHOP WILL BE DIVIDED IN A 'WEAPON' CATEGORY AND 'LOGISTICS' CATEGORY TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS.]
"I see! So if the 'WEAPON' category is dedicated in maintaining my weapons status then the 'LOGISTICS' one is dedicated in maintaining the user's health. Good, now I want that reward even more! I don't want have to be worried about essentials if I have it. Let's go, according to the mini-map the goblins' location is about 400 meters North. I'll equip my rifle and pistol with it's mags in my pockets, equip my bayonet in its scabbard at my waist and done. Let's go hunt some ugly gobs."
Heading towards the goblin group, Jacob skillfully traversed the forest terrain at quick speed while not attracting attention to himself in his experience in ambushing unsuspecting players while camouflaged behind greeneries. On his way, he saw what looks like a deer but it has three antlers growing on its head.
"I wonder kind of a deer is that. Let's use 'Appraisal' for now." As soon as he used the skill Jacob saw a basic information about the deer.
/Tri-Antler Deer: Common type of fauna commonly found in forests. They are generally docile and is known to avoid threats unless it is forced in a corner where it can use all three of its antlers as a defense mechanism./
"I'll go hunt them after I finish my quest, looks tasty without the antlers. Anyway, there they are standing 130cm high with their ugly features, with only small pice of cloth covering their bottom, one of the weakest monsters in what they call 'isekai' is the GOBLIN." I said to my self in an announcer voice.
"There's 5 of them with 2 holding crude bows and arrows while the rest have clubs and rusty daggers, range is about 200 meters. I think I can get them from here and kill them all without exposing myself too much and just out of their bow range. First, I'll take out the ranged Goblins before picking the melee Goblins one by one." Finishing his strategy, Jacob went prone next to a shrub and raises his heavier than plastic gun, aims at one of the bow goblins' neck, breathes out, and pulled the trigger.
*BANG!* The head of the bow goblin exploded before the other one's chest exploded *BANG!*
Realising they were under attack the other three goblins quickly surveyed their surroundings but failed to notice anything. *BANG BANG!* Two more shots sounded effectively killing two more goblins. But at this moment the last goblin managed to spot a spark a couple hundred meters away and it managed to connect the loud bangs related to the sudden death of his companions. "GAAHZZRRRA!" Enraged, it tried to sprint as fast as it can to the source of the flash flailing his club, eager for revenge from its fallen companions. It managed to cover 30 meters of distance before another two loud bangs sounded riddling its body with two new holes. All of that happened within only 10 seconds.
Contented, Jacob sighed in relief as he experienced his first actual combat against one of the monsters in this world.
"Haaa, I managed to kill all of them without letting them go near me, that charging goblin actually scared me a little. But fuck, it's a good thing I aimed lower to make sure the recoil didn't let me miss. A real gun's recoil is a lot stonger than an airsoft's, I have to try practicing more to make myself accustomed to the change. I also need to do more physical training to improve my strength endurance- hmm?
As Jacob evaluated his performance he heard a bunch of notification from his system.
