Yun Ling was invited to attend the public beta test of “Apocalypse Calamity.” In the end, she successfully survived a hundred days, and obtained the “Lord Token”, “Life Skill Level Retention” and “S Rank Skill” as rewards.

The beta ended, and she waited with anticipation for the opening of the game. But then the world became the game… …

Yun — life skill player — Ling thought, what could she do? Continue to drag out her ignoble existence.

Intermediate Fishing, Intermediate Foraging, Advanced Sewing, Advanced Cooking. So many life skills in hand. She wanted to hoard grain, produce, recruit troops, build, and turn her land into an indestructible steel fort.

Translator Review: This is a lovely and relaxing “short” story about a woman in a gamified world. Of course some people die (this is a story with MMO mechanics and monsters) but overall it is quite an optimistic story. There is no time travel, there is no getting revenge, there is no betrayal from a significant other, in fact, the romance is close to none. The story is about people persevering in a novel world when facing unknown threats, and in the case of the main character, hoarding her way to success.
