“We’re changing things up!”
I looked up from the latest set of papers. “Umm…how?”
“I’m implementing a new mode since you’ve been spending too much time crunching numbers.”
“That’s half the job.”
“Anyway I got this alternative mode call ‘Creative Mode’ from Jump-chan. It will be something new for me! And it sounds like fun to watch.”
I was handed a glossy pamphlet, while reading my brows rose. “Really…wow, was I that boring? I thought you were rather entertained from the last jump.”
The Benefactor scratched their head. “Sort of…? I have watched some other jumpers before so…”
“Well I won’t pass up the chance to have infinite CP, sign me up.”
Let’s check the rules: infinite CP for me and my companions but a cap of 1000 CP on a single item. There is no chain failure, death just ends the jump and forfeits purchases. Able to stay longer to postpone the exit. Return is usable except for End-jump scenarios. Gauntlets follow the same rules and the jumper is now committed to ascension.
“As an added thing I will be randomly choosing the jumps. But you can pick once every five. Do make each jump interesting in some way.”
I nodded. “Okay, sort of balances out and you’ll get more entertainment watching me fumble through a bunch of universes I don’t recognize in the slightest.”
I did get a boost to my base body (which only really matters in Gauntlets) which was nice. While I was checking the last details in the pamphlet, The Benefactor waved then disappeared to wherever they usually went.
“Well, since I can pick anything I want…this is going to be useful…better get started.” I resisted the urge to rub my hands together and cackle like a maniac.
