Oh! I'm A Potato Cat!

published on

Item: Maple Leaf
A Leaf from a Sugar Maple Tree.

Surprised by the sudden pop-up I drop the leaf. Come think of it, I can’t help but wonder why I haven’t noticed that interface at the edge my vision yet. I guess I’m just too used to gaming. But I really thirsty. Let’s check out that interface later. I take look around. There’s a river nearby with clear water. I move towards that river. Trying to scoop up some water I realize my hands seemed somewhat smaller than they should be. I look at my reflection the lake and my jaw simply drops. I look like I’m 10! And I have… cat ears?! Black furry cat ears!! So I’m a catling now?! Never mind checking out my interface later. I need to check it now! Do I even have a character window?

As soon as I think of it the window appears. Very convenient!

Character Info: Swift
Age:   12
Race:  Chitwer Ailurantrope
Level: 1 …

What on earth is a Chitwer Ailurantrope?! As to answer my question two new windows appear.

Glossary: Race: Chitwer
A childlike race. Grown Chitwer are about the same height as 10-year-old Humes. They are blessed with Luck. Chitwers can be quite obsessive with their talents. Due to that obsessiveness, they improve their talents faster can achieve higher masteries at those talents than other races. That obsessiveness is also the reason they usually are seen as not that sociable.

I don’t mind playing the childlike race in that other game, in fact I really like playing as a small mischievous bringer of chaos but it’s an entirely different thing to become one! Having been average Asian I have been already smaller than average Caucasian and I have always been quite conscious of it. Damn my colleagues! Why do they always put my stuff up on the shelves that I can’t reach without a ladder! But I digress. This is a whole new level of short!

Glossary: Race: Ailurantrope
A werecat race. Aside from featuring feline ears and tail they mostly don’t differ much from Humans. They are blessed with Strength. Due to excellent reflexes and instincts, they can adapt quickly. Other races see that growth with both envy and malevolence.

So I am really a potato cat!
