How fucked you are?
What would you do?
I can't shitpost on 4chin, or watch chinese cartoons anymore so it's pretty terrible.
My job as a programmer is pretty useless too.
I don't know their language either so the fact that I can write and read will be pretty useless.
I can count (assuming they use base 10)
I have high school level education which could be pretty useful if once I can communicate well enough.
I'd probably work the fields for a few years until I can learn the language, then I would try teach them how to make a steam engine to start the industrial age there.
By the standards of education in these settings, anyone with a basic highschool education would be miles above the average peasant. I'm guessing most people here have some amount of post secondary education that could put them even further ahead.
disgusting reptile fag.
>>>furfinity off you go.
Yeah, because usually the person transported actually knows things or its some kind of expert on something useful there.
Do you actually know how to engineer or make gunpowder or meteorology or anything actually useful
I have a college degree and don't think I know anything of the things characters transported to other worlds know.
More girls will join your party later but right now as first partner you can choose either
[ ] A tsundere swordsgirl

So wait, this is an RPG land right? Do we get stat allocations?
Cause I am totally sticking all my stats into HP, Evasion and Defense.
Other than that however I just invent fist magic so that I am special enough to become protagonist and then use my protagonist status to reign tyrrany across the land by raping and pillaging nearby villages ensuring the slaughter of men everywhere while leaving their woman and daughters for my own. Make money through lying, stealing and cheating people out of their hard earned money while also giving them unfair taxation and then have a child to love and care for after I come home from mass rape and execution.
Mage, if I rolled Knight.
Swordgirl if I'm a mage or rouge.
/fit/ and I have some basic wilderness survival knowledge and some medical training.
I can manage.
Do I get to fug qt elf grills or monstergirls?
just cumming everywhere and being a level 10 forever because levels 1-10 were basking in the magnificence of the world, then getting stuck at 10 because everything is so fucking sexy
I mean who could resist ass in OP or right here?
>everyone wants to become an adventurer
Weapon stores and inns are where the big money's at.
easy, I go and kill slimes until I level up
then I go kill bats, or spiders, or rats
then i go fight orcs
repeat ad infinitum until i kill dragons and am max level
RPG lands fucking suck. Give me real high fantasy or shove it up your bumhole.
I know viruses and bacteria exist, that's ages ahead of their medical knowledge.
I know how a printing machine and a steam engine work. And lots of smaller things like a bike.
If used correctly profits from these inventions could bring a decent life,
A decent steam engine is probably the best thing you could bring to a fantasy world. They're not too difficult to build but can make a hell of a difference
Hell, even the ancient greeks had simple steam engines, sadly they only thought of them as being items of curiosity

Inevitably, despair that I now have to spend my days risking my life fighting monsters and hoomans instead of jerking off and watching anime.
Such is life.
If magic is a skill that can be learned, I can augment it with my knowledge of science, like Leilei does in GATE.
If not, I'm probably not that useful in combat, although if it's actually like a real medieval world I'll probably be bigger and stronger than most people. I'd be better off using knowledge to make myself rich though, I have a background in metal fabrication and my knowledge of modern alloys, casting, and forging techniques would probably allow me to make substantial improvements to weapon and armor technology.
Of course, if the dwarven smiths are good enough, I'll go the Drifters route and teach them to make guns.
Can you build them? Every part, sizes proportion? Can you make what you need to build them?
Do you know how to treat each illness? What plants are useful, and how to make medicine?
I'd like a fantasy story where the MC is really learned and is a medical student however he quickly realizes the physiology is entirely different and all of his knowledge is harmful or downright useless.

Anyone know what is up with google lately? Filename has source, but still I keep getting "The URL doesn't refer to an image, or the image is not publicly accessible" on loads of images.
What the fuck is with that?
Ancient steam engine sucked, they simply used recoil from escaping steam as propulsion, they had next to no power.
No one can do everything by themselves.
I'd first need to either convince a smith to work with me, or make enough money to hire one.
replace wizard with smug elf who headshots you from 100m from a tree from stealth or a dwarf who drinks with you until your liver explodes
Thats just asking for rape isn't it? The guy in Alice Tale almost dies every chapter until he gets training from lolibaba. Rape and slavery.
No gauges. No visible stats. No HUD. "Skills" are literally techniques learned via mentoring. There's rarely something akin to skill assist, but that's tricky to properly explain.
It'd be real dissapointing if the magic world I get stuck in doesn't have conjure dick spells.
Thats just a drag. Why have fantasies if you can't conjure a bag of dicks?
Then you could be a dick archer. You draw the dicks to your dick bow and dick people from afar.
In stories we read its rare that people ambush you with poison or such. I don't care how narutoads you are, there's probably guys who have been stealing pretty elf girls from birth and you're an even easier target.
I'll just grind nonstop and become Donald F. Trump. If only I could get superhuman powers by killing stuff in real life...
If it's a MMO, I'll start in elfcity, completely safe from threat, and I'll go grind shitty creatures until I'm strong enough to take petty slavers or bandits.
If it's brutal high fantasy, I'll also probably start in elfcity, where some elf-lord will probably teach me the basic things.
Basic elf things, mind you, meaning I'll probably be stronger than all petty bandits.
>How fucked are you?
I'd give it a 50/50.
>What would you do?
Take my knowledge of the world I live in now, become known as a genius for inventing wacky and wild shit, retire rich with the preachers daughter.
Are you able to make a steam engine yourself?
There's a difference between knowing how to use technology and knowing how to make technology, and it's a pretty big gap.

OBVIOUSLY BOT. or find some other way to exploit the game and become abnormally successful, then get super rich, and take control of the economy and create an elitist clan to be feared by everyone else. also buy hot NPCs for sex slaves.
what are the conditions? Am i going naked, with what I'm wearing now? is there any preparation? do I speak a similar language? My experience is going to be wildly different based on these factors.
You can use the power of double entry book keeping to become a banker, and rule the land by ruling its coin.
The real problem for those of us who want to go the technology route is that the world probably lacks the manufacturing techniques and equipment to make any of it, so you'd have to do that first.
I think my first step would be to build a simple lathe, probably water wheel powered. That provides a good starting point for building equipment and other tools, and makes it possible to construct things like cylinders and pistons for simple steam or combustion engines.
I think the next stop would be a rudimentary electric generator and motor setup, which would allow for powering machine tools and also for basic arc welding, which would be important for things like steam engines because there's no mass production system in place to make things like the thousands of rivets necessary without welding. You can also use the electric arc for melting and alloying metals that wouldn't be doable in a normal forge.
The big thing, though, is that once you have a lathe, you can use it to build a mill and mill tooling.
Once you have proper alloys, a lathe, and a mill, you can make guns. Not just single-shot flintlock muzzleloaders, but real modern guns. They build AKs with simpler setups in Central Asia and Africa. A bolt-action gun probably makes more sense than a semiauto because it's more tolerant of primitive gunpowder blends and inconsistent ammo loads, though.
Ammo is, of course, the hard part, and you'll have to figure out how to mass-produce metallic cartridges, but once you've got lathes up and running it should be possible to make dies and presses for them.
Filthy forest niggers are for killing, anon.
I never really liked that approach, "he knows things of highschool level so he is lot smarter than people in that world so he becomes important"
Even highschool student that gets an special powers is more convincing like that.
Because you knowing things about our world doesn't replace the lack of knowledge of their world. What matters if you know gunpowder formula if you die in a desert or a jungle or what if your lack of knowledge you end in a cave full of spidermantis girls?
>raise little half elf children
You filthy race traitor. You may only rape and kill elves, not love them. That's degeneracy.
The idea is tempting because people think that they'll be able to revolutionize the entire world by introducing technologies that they themselves barely understand in the first place.
When most likely, they'll end up under a noble making him shit for the rest of their lives because feudalism is a bitch.
Then theres the type that think they'll be able to figure it out somehow, and that no one will be able to steal it because its such a novel idea.
Then again its not real, so might as well surf the pussy juices of your own personal elf army.

Slaves, no, they won't be capable of the proper metalworking and machining techniques necessary to make anything useful. About all they'd be useful for is cleaning the shop and carrying stuff around, and that's if they don't intentionally sabotage things. The Germans learned that the hard way in WWII.
I need talented, motivated, dedicated staff, not slaves. The most I'd do with slaves is maybe identify talented ones and let them apprentice at the shop and then work for their freedom with reasonable terms.
Now, if we're in a place where most slaves are captured soldiers? That might be interesting, I could build an army of them, arm them with superior weaponry, and conquer the nation with them.
Depends on the magic of the universe. Even if we assume it's favorable towards guns, while it's great in low number vs low number confrontations, it's very shit in warfare or tactical level combat.

Is resurrection possible in the fantasy world I traveled, too?
If not, then leveling up would be quite dangerous since you only get one chance of life against a monster.
In the Roman empire, skilled slaves were still doing things they already knew how to do.
It'd be a lot harder to find people capable of learning to use what would essentially be alien technology to them in a world where most of them would never have encountered anything more complicated than a simple horse cart.
>go to RPG fantasy world

I guess that means I'm fucked.
I dunno. Maybe you could work it out, but the thing is, our technology is complicated and has a lot of domain specific knowledge. For instance, could you use a forge?
As for me, I could theoretically describe a steam engine pretty well, but I think it would take me years of effort to turn my half-remembered degree into a practical, working thing.
Basically gonna be a monk level 1. Just gotta reach the level cap and then i can run into batte to fight dragons and devils and stuff.
Do you niggers know how broken Monks are in fantasy setting usually?
I'd get a qt fit warrior gf and a party of bros and go on quests and adventures. Do some good, save some people, etc. too.
If im in Berserk universe ( and let's be honest this is 4 Chan, it's the only place the god of evil would send us to/ we deserve)
then don't get killed, raped or both at the same time and try to make it to Guts
The only ones I know off the top of my head were scribes and the like, and from what I've heard they were generally treated decently.
A merchant, for example, might have a slave who basically acted as an accountant, and while they generally would have been on a lower level than the family, that slave would at least have decent quarters and food, probably more like a paid servant than what you expect for a slave.
As far as I'm aware, a slave like that would be more likely to be a former citizen who'd been put into slavery because of debts or some kind of crime or whatever, rather than some peasant captured in a war or whatever.
Roman slavery wasn't like the slavery we know.
You could sell yourself into slavery, you were provided equal treatment and some were even given wages. Slaves could be anyone, and they were even common as teachers for the youths of rich people.
Of course you had to wear a wooden sign so people didn't think you were a real person but it was possible to buy yourself out of slavery as well.
>You travel to a magical fantasy RPG land
>What would you do?
I would have a lovely evening.
Worse: everyone can get exp by killing stuff, so by the time you arrive, the whole world was thrown in absolute chaos and the only ones alive are like lv99 psychopaths. Good luck with that.
>double doctorate in something physics- and chemistry-related, master's in some engineering degree
>laws of the new universe are different (magic or something fucking shit up)
>all dogmatic knowledge useless
I'm aware that this is a lot of hard work, perhaps even years but don't make it out to be something impossible to do.
People that never seen one of these things before and had no clue if they would end up working were still able to pull it off.
People on /a/ who get summoned would still remain /a/ NEETs because of our real life weak bodies from being assigned to our real life battle stations 24/7.
However, if /a/ got reincarnated with a new fresh body, then we have the chance to become confident with a new face and a new body.
People are retarded.
No one in the fantasy world is gonna give a shit about your steam engine because in the medieval era, food on the table is the most important thing for people.
And people back then spent the majority of the day, tending to their farm fields.
If you want people to give a shit about your steam engine, then you gotta give them time to take a break from their hard labor.
How are you suppose to do that?
Well, think of innovative farming tools like maybe iron farming tools instead of bronze farming tools, etc.
4 field system farming instead of whatever farming system they are doing right now.
Once you got the food problem fixed, then people would have time to give a shit about your stream engine.
Humans won't have time to think about anything else if they have to work from morning to night time so you have to introduce the concept of Leisure which allows people to think about other shit than their current job.
Okay, for all you 'muh modern knowledge and technology' assholes. I will put this simply, unless you can create a detailed diagram and describe, in detail, how the device you plan to invent is made and how you would go about making it using medieval era tools right now, on the spot in your post then don't go around thinking you could do it in a situation as disorienting as being transported to an alternate world.
Seriously, I'm tired of hearing this shit from people who have no real practical knowledge on the subject and who would just fail completely from not actually being able to build any of the shit they talk about. Despite knowing how the technology works you probably don't know how to actually make it. I know how a TV works, doesn't mean I would be able to build one.
Seriously, I'm fucking sick of this.
Though, to be serious, assuming their mathematics and physical laws were basically the same as ours I would probably become a tutor. I might lack practical knowledge for actually building shit but I know enough to sell my teaching skills to rich nobles so I can tutor their bratty kids.
In volume 7 of the Overlord light novels, there is a mention of the boastful sage, a minotaur whoose knowledge brought great insights into various fields of science and technology. It is implied that he was a player who was transported to the new world a few hundred years ago. Because he could not proof his claims, scolars had to do it and some claims are still unproven .
I think yozr case would be either similar to his, or totally ignored as long as you cant proof anything.
>No one in the fantasy world is gonna give a shit about your steam engine because in the medieval era, food on the table is the most important thing for people.
Step 1: Go to mill.
Step 2: Power mill with steam engine.
Step 3: Get all the farmers' daughter pussy you want.
Yes because instead of filling my time with anime and games and the three days of the week I work. I would have nothing to do.
At the very least I'd become old man bunyan who lives in the woods all by himself. Don't go near him he might be crazy.
How does being under house arrest for the rest of your life sound when nobles don't want you and your crazy ideas to leak to anybody else?
Enjoy being some noble's bitch boy as you are forced to work for him while he takes all the credit.
All I'd probably do is fuck shit up. Here's how I think it'll go down..
> I'm walking around said fantasy world.
>Chosen hero pops up in front of me, probably doing something heroic like preparing to fight a monster or an evil over lord or something.
>A stay arrow flies out of nowhere and fatally wounds chosen hero.
>He wants me to continue his work thinking I'm also some legendary hero from another land.

Yeah that's pretty much what I'd do.
>Bash some insects until I level up.
>Then bash some squirrels and other critters until I level up.
>Sell the tiny furs for money so I can buy a magic book.
>Lift rock everyday until and read magic book so I can become a muscle wizard.
Not very fucked at all.
I praise the sun, obviously.
are you confident that if you, in this day and age where people no longer need to worry about bandit raids and starving to death, went to some god forsaken village and tried to convince people you - who most likely can't feed yourself in the wilds - knew a way of improving their lives if they helped by working for free?
You're the one forgetting that ranks in nobility exists and the nobles you mentioned are usually around marquis level who have the funds to do so and you are under the delusion that they won't be treating you like a tool.
My plan is to start with a basic wood lathe, powered by a water wheel (with leather belt drive if necessary.)
From there, more advanced tools can be made, but I could also just use it to mass-produce ornate, high-quality furniture and live comfortably by selling it to nobles.
Oh, here's something to sell to nobles that's actually pretty doable with medieval casting and fabrication techniques, as long as you have the knowledge: indoor plumbing.
Another good one is charcoal-based water purification. Actually, once you have decently pure water and knowledge of the techniques, you could create beer and liquor far beyond anything would have ever tasted, that's gotta be worth something too. I wonder how hard it would be to make a basic heat pump refrigeration system, which would allow the creation of lagers and pilseners, too.
And playing off that note too, how about central heating for the homes of nobility?
Time and money restrict adventures here, because doing anything adventurous requires travel, and travel is expensive, especially since good adventures usually mean plane tickets.
In the fantasy world, the adventure is right in front of me, and I don't have a job to keep stuck in one place.
>Enjoying not being able to sleep on nice beds, eat good food, or fuck whores.
You just helped me understand something more important.
Thats exactly the kind of monk id be! A monk who indulges in the hedonistic pleasures which life has to offer.
Because when you think about it: nothing in life is sweeter than a reward for which you fight hard for. And the bigger the reward, the harder you fight.
Holy shit. HEDONISM MONKS MAKE PERFECT FUCKING SENSE!
Im literally training my body for all the booze, tits and ass the world has to offer.
But if I free them, they'll suck my dick for FREE.
>sadly they only thought of them as being items of curiosity
Theres nothing sad about it. In a slave owning society, labor saving devices = lazy slaves = slave revolt = you dead. Greek and roman tech advanced the way it did for a reason, not because they were too short sighted or ignorant.
Seems it would be easier to survive by going the Evil Route in the fantasy world.
You would inevitably get killed by a hero but you get access to power at a much faster rate.
Sell your soul to become a Balrog and just NEET it up inside a dwarf fortress you invaded and just chill.
By all the monster girls, adventurers and town hoes.

Just know gear ratio will probably make you rich like a fucking king.
The reason pennyfarthers(hipster bike with one big front wheel and small rear wheel) had a big wheel was because they could go fasterbecouse of the larger diameter of the wheel. gear ratio killed these bikes, and utilizing something similar, even making a simple bike with wheels, pedals and your golden.
Knowing that mercury is poison and wont cure shit will make you amazing. Pour alcohol on wounds and similar sanitation will make you amazing.
ie, most of the small shit you take for granted would be revolutionary in the middle/dark ages.
True, but the majority of people wouldn't really care, that is if you could actually get them to even believe you. I mean rationally speaking they have no reason to believe you and the things you mentioned about mercury and sanitation aren't the types of thing you can really prove.
Generally in those times people only really gave a shit about things that were both practical and easy to demonstrate and explain.
Even further this isn't a simple medieval world, it's a FANTASY world

That is a spectacularly bad idea. You are highly likely to get killed if you go around telling people you are a noble from a far away land when you have no guards, influence or other protection.
Seriously, just say you're a traveling scholar or something, otherwise you're highly likely to get seriously fucked.
>Just know gear ratio will probably make you rich like a fucking king.
How? Who would buy your bikes? Peasants definitely don't have the money to buy something so luxurious. What's more if you invented something, anything revolutionary you would have your idea stolen, probably by the person you asked to fund the construction of the item in question.
You have to remember, there weren't any patents back then, inventors generally got supremely fucked over in the dark-ages specifically because nobles, merchants and basically anyone else who could use them would just steal the idea as soon as they got wind of it and start making their own (and selling them if it was marketable, which a bicycle is not because who the fuck is going to actually want to buy that other than a select few rich people who can afford to waste a little money on luxuries).
Basically, in those times, if you didn't have influence and money, you got fucked in the ass, repeatedly because it was literally legal for nobles to do that if they wanted to.
So? How will you make it profitable? How will you avoid having the idea stolen and getting fucked in the ass?
Thanks to the lack of fatty foods and the fact that levels (presumably) exist I can endeavor on a quest to become swole and follow my dream.
Looking really imposing in full plate while sitting on a throne in an evil castle. If I have to kill a demon lord for that moment I will.
I would then move the throne to a lovely countryside cottage and eat dinner on it as I use my plunder from adventuring to try and get wizards to invent the internet or just give me a small portal to earth that i can steal wifi through
That actually depends on my affinity with magic. Since im no good with martial arts, if i have at least decent in magic then i would train the fuck out of it till i master it(since there would be nothing like 4chan and internet to procrastinate).
If im bad with magic, then might as well practice body strengthening so that at least i can protect myself a little bit.
If i cant even learn body strengthening, then im royally fucked in a forest only to be killed by a goblin or orc.
I use my amazing powers of literacy and rudimentary knowledge of science and medicine to become a well known scholar.

The fact that you don't understand why someone who can read at a 12th grade level would be high-tier in a world where 5% of the population is literate proves that you'll probably be a "peasant" in the modern world your entire life
but that was more satire/comedy than an actual alternate history story.
Something like Lest Darkness Fall would be a more reasonable time-travel with advantage story since he doesn't magically get machine guns or whatever. There's also tribute short story (by another author) for that book that's an epilogue that will give you some wanky satisfaction (aftermath of his future knowledge basically decades later) if you're into that.
Ok, I get teletransported to a RPG world, become a beggar and die. Realistic enough now? None of it will ever happen, there's no reason to be serious about it, let the kids play with their dark deep fantasies.
The bomber, she's the only one who isn't dressed like a complete slut. Even with her I would need to get proper clothes.
I don't want to be getting weird looks and rumours from everyone I meet because of some loli in slutty clothes.
it's not actually that unbelievable
if a high schooler can somehow get a stable foundation in the past (gain the favor of a noble or something), their attitude and knowledge wouldn't below that of a well-educated noble. Honestly, the attitude of self-importance (with how we value life) would be incredibly distinct from a destitute peasant already.
>magical fantasy RPG land
Why are all these fantasy worlds governed by MMO game mechanics? Even when they're explicitly not an MMO they tend to work more or less exactly the same as if they were designed by underpaid Korean game developers.
Get to the nearest tavern. Acquire bros.
people thinking corrupt people in the middle ages - or fantasy lands - would even stand a chance against the average anon.
even when ambitious and crafty they would certainly abide by some bullshit code of conduct or honor, even the most timid anons would eat them for breakfast. We're pretty awful people.
Most warriors at those times were unskilled, since only rich kids could get proper training. Though they were physically above today's standards.
However this is fantasy and there is magic so it's hard to say.
Not well if said warrior is trained and not a peasant conscript.
Good tip is that unarmed is always going to be bad against someone who has an actual weapon. It only works in video games because video games are about fun, not realism.
Wow. You are really dumb.
I would give you about 10 days, a month at the absolute most before you did something dumb enough to get yourself killed like mouthing off to a town guard because you think that they would have even the slightest problem with killing some mouthy peasant.
Do most of you guys even have a deep knowledge of our generation's tech to bring to mmo worlds? I always see niggers talk about gunpowder and shit being brought to less civilized worlds but I doubt most of those guys even know how to make it
Well this is what other people have been saying in this thread.
Knowing the theory of how it works =/= being able to make it.
But for some reason people think that just because they have a basic understanding of the mechanics of something that they can Mcguyver one up in any given situation, because they're fucking retards.
Any martially trained person should know how to disarm or at least disable, unless the weapon is ranged. The real problem is trying to attack someone armoured while barefisted.
1. Find aluminum and iron oxide
2. Make thermite
3. Find other chemicals and make bombs
3. Throw thermite bombs at shit
depends on the anon really.
if it's someone who graduated in civil, chemical or mechanical engineering they woud probably be set for life. Med school too (maybe, if it's a magic world they would look at him as some as a absolute sadistic barbarian).
Well, don't even need to comment on the cases of anons who majored in eastern european literature of the 12th century.
But then there are the neets. They would be alright cause every neet gets cheat characters upon reincarnating/tranporting to other worlds. It's a rule.
Not really, maybe if it were a martial art focused on fighting armed opponents but boxing and MMA are both sports that are about fighting unarmed opponents and neither involve learning how to disarm someone who's trying to axe you in the face (I know this from personal experience, I've done a bit of MMA before). That aside, someone who was trained to use a weapon would also have training in NOT being disarmed you know and would still have the advantage from the fact that they have a weapon and their opponent does not.
If the person was trained in a martial art that included disarming armed opponents and was more skilled than their armed opponent then they would have the advantage. However if both had the same skill level the armed opponent would have the advantage in most circumstances.
You do know that you would never be able to find either of those things in a pre-industrial setting right?
Raw aluminum is almost impossible to even find in nature due to it's highly reactive nature, you could only ever find it alloyed with other elements and in that state it's useless for making explosives (because the reactive part is the part you need). Raw aluminum is made using a complicated method of separation from alloyed elements that is all but impossible to perform without modern instruments.
it's wish fullfilment escapism, like every other "get transported to a mmo" ever only with an added layer of SCIENCE.
mmos don't have a realistic economies anyway, so anyone who goes there is set for life because they automatically get a class, then they can go leveling up with no problem and spawn back if they die.
it was law at one point in britain that all men under a certain age had to practice archery for two hours every week under the supervision of the local clergy. I`d consider that pretty skilled.
a lot of this depends on whether im put in this world naked like terminator or im able to bring 20 or so books explaining engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, and simple machines. being some kind of insane techno wizard in the hills.
If i am sent there with nothing i could do ok, i can blacksmith and carve wood. so most of my skills are relevant in a dark-age world. first id apprentice with a blacksmith for a while, to get my seed money, then use my knowledge of alloys and heat treatment to make superior steel weapons. But honestly in an rpg world isnt steel like shit tier compared dragon bones and secret dwarvin super metal? could good armor deflect bullets and the like?
Couldn’t you put some magic stone that’s always hot in a steam engine and get infinite energy? I mean i see these entropy defying flaming rocks all the time.
Well, if is a world with immortality like skyrim, where you can go the vampire way and live forever, you can bet your ass I would be all over that.
I would just lazy around after becoming immortal, but still, immortality is a pretty worthwhile goal.
Now if the world is one like ragnarok online where you can use alchemy to create submissive cat girls or enslave strong willed monster girls, well......
Rape as many woman as possible and die from a mixture of syphillis and the plague like a fucking peasant.
Due to zero existence of safety googles much less protective headgear/eyewear, becoming a blacksmith is going to damage your eyesight in the fantasy world.
Also, you are gonna have to make a decision between choosing to make weapons or tools.
If the lord of your land is warhungry, you might even be forced to make weapons even if you don't want to make tools for killing.
>even when ambitious and crafty they would certainly abide by some bullshit code of conduct or honor,
Uuuu... I don't know anything about this kind of things. The only RPG that I have played was FF6, 7, 8, and 9 and that's was with the help of my big brother when I was a tiny. I'm not very good with all this nerd shit. Sooooooo I'm fucked.
>magical RPG land
are you even fucking joking Anon?
I'm going to sit in the starting area and kill fucking squirrels for 10 god damn years.
I'm going to feast on their god damn nuts as I smash their little bodies.
After I have leveled up by the insanely stereotyped JRPG grind I will go to the first village.
I will sell all the squirrel skins for a small fortune, along with all the gold and magic fire rings I accumulated off their bodies. I will buy the best girl and head off on my way to the next town.
I will swing my sword around and hit trees that have apples. I will spend another two years doing this.
I will be 35 by this point.
I will than go fuck anime tiddies.
Who the fucks going to stop me?
Even though i've never even killed a monster my stats are automatically going to be maxed and i can just flick creatures to death.
FUCK ANIME TIDDIES NIGGA
>That aside, someone who was trained to use a weapon would also have training in NOT being disarmed
That's perfectly valid-sounding comic book logic, but it's not quite that simple in practice.
First, to have training against being disarmed, the trainer would somehow have to have knowledge on all the possible disarming techniques and situations out there, as well as the ways to counter them, which is unreasonable. Not every army has beard guys from Kill Bill to train them. That's why, people generally don't get trained for specific events like that, in the past or the present.
Secondly, disarming techniques wouldn't be effective to begin with if they could be intuitively guarded against. I've trained a marial art involving some, and basically, the moment you get into a position where the disarming technique can be carried out, there's nothing you can do against it, even if you know what's happening and how. Because it's just basic mechanics, force is applied in a way that human anatomy makes impossible to resist. And I practiced the nice art. There are schools out there that aim to first break your arm and then remove the weapon it's holding.
I decide to lie on my ass for the next 40k years and become a literal god.
>I'm going to sit in the starting area and kill fucking squirrels for 10 god damn years.
Why do people keep thinking this would work? Just about every RPG stops giving you XP for beating monsters that are way below your level.
Probably fucked. I'll start grinding to even the odds though. Just like my Japanese geimus!
Hopefully I'm near an area with low-level monsters to grind for a while. If not, I'll try and hire somebody at a higher level, or a decent group of companions and travel with them until I can get my stats up and/or some decent gear for protection.
Believe me, I've thought this out and have had Tetris Effect dreams about this shit.
>How fucked you are?
Quite a lot in a literal sense
>What would you do?
Confuse sexually frustrated virgins
What would do?
Find low level monsters I can kill. Kill them until I reach the max cap level, pour all my points into skills and shit to become good.
Go around fucking up evil in the name of Justice like a real Paladin.
I'd probably be all right. I used to be US army recon, so I've got a pretty big selection of skills, including improvising weapons & traps, I grew up studying karate and kung fu, and I spent a couple years as a business consultant.
I'd establish a guild/mercenary company and make mad bank for everyone.
Obviously the assassin, she'd be the only one who could keep up, plus that fluffy tail.
Assuming you could find bauxite and cryolite, it's a relatively straight forward process, but in a pre-industrial society it'd be more energy efficient to make other forms of explosive.
Hell yeah, flash them specs and nobody will question how bad ass you are.
Endlessly grind weak mobs until I'm barely decent in fighting. Soon after, through some unreasonable event of misfortune, I will accidentally sell my soul to whatever malevolent being which exists in said world. Utilizing this hellish bargain, I will then subject myself to horrors unknown until my very being has transformed into that of a seemingly harmless chest.
I will then spend the next dozen or so years as a mimic in a secluded dungeon pouncing on unsuspecting would-be adventurers to pay back the debt I've garnered towards my benefactor. After a few more years the entire realm will probably enter a state of fervent turmoil between its denizens. The unknown demon who transformed me into a mimic will then reveal herself to be the manifestation of the world's end - in the form of a little girl of course.
Showing up to finally claim the power she lent to me, I then finally put the levels I've garnered to use in order to become a backpack. Not just any backpack mind you. But a randsel specifically. Claiming my absolute loyalty to my loli overlord, she will reluctantly acknowledge my strength and finally grant the purpose I've dreamt of ever since I was sent to this world---
As the mimic backpack of an all-powerful demon loli.
