The Rise Of A Porter

Do read my new novel **Chimaera's Conquest**. It would mean a lot to me if you could read it and give your valuable review. Thanks in advance. **** The novel follows the story of Arnold, a porter, who accompanies warriors and superhumans inside dangerous dungeons, which are distinguished by their colours. The porters were always mistreated by the modern human civilization and even though their job was riskier than that of warriors and superhumans, their existence was never appreciated nor were they paid well. No one knows why these dungeons started to appear all over the world. The only thing they know was the dangers that would find their way into the world if they didn't kill the monsters. But only a selected few cared about the calamity because for the rest it was all about earning money and gaining power. But nothing in this new world is constant and everything keeps changing, and this time the change would find its way towards an ordinary Porter. After stealing a scroll from the dungeon, he ran off to his home. The scroll gave him powers no one could've imagined to gain. But he wasn't alone. 9 other humans had been granted similar powers... powers of the Gods! What would Arnold do with his newfound powers? Will he kill the other 8 Paladins and rule over the world which had oppressed him for years? Or will he rise against the Gods and make them repent for their crimes? Can the strength lent by the Gods be sufficient to deal with them once and for all? Would he be able to defeat his creator? Or will he join the Gods instead? Too many questions, too little time. The decisions he would make could be the end of humanity Or would an ordinary Porter, become he world's only hope? Follow me on the journey to the power of this ordinary Porter as he becomes the Savior or the Devil. ******************* Gold tier award-winning novel of WPC#130. ******************* Warning: There might be a few grammatical errors in the early chapters, so if you are a grammar nazI then please proceed with caution. Also, the MC isn't very bright and will do a lot of stupid things from time to time. So if you like a cool and calculating MC you won't be seeing him like that until later chapters (Chapter 100 or so). I'm telling this to y'all here so you don't start yelling at me in the comments or review. All in all, I've tried to make the MC as realistic as I could. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you and enjoy reading my creation! *********************** Discord link: https://discord.gg/uQzmEr8 *********************** Cover art by unknown (If anyone knows the artist then please inform me on discord: AkshatArpit#8707) (if anyone has any problems with it, then please leave a review to let me know.

"Claim." Arnold said breathing heavily.

Arnold didn't have anything else to do in the night, so he decided to go all out for the daily quest. He already had a lot of Attribute points as well as Potential points after defeating the dungeon boss, completing the daily quest added more points for him to use, and he knew exactly what he'll do with all the points he had gathered.

He had 63 Attribute points and 32 Potential points after completing the daily quest. He immediately leveled up his intelligence to 50, strength to 40, agility, accuracy and stamina to 45, his evade to 36 and lastly he increased his charm to 30.

He could use the Attribute points freely without worrying, but he cannot do the same with the Potential points. Thanks to the fight with the rank A boss of the dungeon, he knew exactly which abilities he had to upgrade.

He decided to upgrade the abilities which were the most useful to him in his previous battle, like [ELEMENTAL SUMMONING : FROST GOLEM], [POSEIDON'S BLESSING] and [ENHANCEMENT] were all upgraded to level 5. At this time, a new notification popped up on the interface.


You've unlocked three bonus effects!

• [ ELEMENTAL SUMMONING : FROST GOLEM ] : All stats of summoned golems increased by 12%.

• [ POSEIDON'S BLESSING ] : Your HP will now increase by 250 points after leveling up.

• [ENHANCEMENT] : Probability of permanent enhancement increased by 7%


"What. The. Hell." He was flabbergasted, "What else are you hiding from me system-sama!"

He wanted to level up more abilities and unlock more bonus effects but potential points were hard to come by and leveling up one ability from level 1 to level 5 required 10 potential points, while it required 4 potential points to upgrade a level 4 ability to level 5.

Although he could gain some potential points by doing the daily quest, the amount of points gained by this was miniscule, the only efficient way to get potential points was to level up faster and that was a problem.

After he ranked up to C, to level up by 1 level he need 1000 EXP, double the amount that was previously required. The only effective way to gain EXP was to clear a dungeon, but due to the incident in the last dungeon, his team was given some time off and that included him.

It essentially meant that they weren't allowed to enter any dungeon for sometime. There was a way to back to the dungeon, but he highly doubted that someone as new as him would be allowed to do so, thus he dropped the idea. As he was planning his next move, another system messaged popped open.


[VINDICATOR] has been crafted successfully.

The item has been stored in your inventory.


"Right on time!" he said as he opened the inventory and took out the vindicator. He then used his [PROBE] skill on it.



TYPE : Weapon


REMARK : These very large semi-automatic dual pistol is an extraordinary model amongst gunslingers who actively look for a little extra protection. Its fairly heavy weight makes it usable as a club too. It has a great amount of firepower with extraordinary precision.

<Expand to see the stats>

Important information :

No suitable ammunition found in the inventory. Please proceed to buy some from the <Shop >.


"I totally forgot about the bullets!" He opened the shop tab and started looking through it.

The shop's interface was huge and had innumerable items, gears, potions and different types of knowledge as well, although most of them were greyed out meaning he wasn't able to purchase them.

He looked at the potions, there were some general potions such as <HP potion> (graded into small, medium and high) and <Mana potion> (Small, medium and high), there were another potions as well like, <Affinity booster>, <Ability booster>, <Attribute booster>, and even a <Potential booster>

But apart from <HP potion> and <Mana potion>, the rest of them were greyed out. There were various types of gears as well but sadly all of them were greyed. In the knowledge section, so far only a single item was present, named as [BASIC SHOOTING SKILL]. Arnold selected the skill knowledge.


[BASIC SHOOTING SKILL] : The basic knowledge required by <Gunslingers > to be able to use <Artillery Weapons>. Acquiring this knowledge would reduce the recoil caused by the guns. Buying this knowledge also unlocks the ability [QUICK SHOT].

[QUICK SHOT] : (Passive ability) Basic ability for <Gunslinger > class. This ability increases the magazine capacity as well as shooting speed by 15%.

[ Rank : B ]

Price : 3 basic crystals.

<The amount would be automatically deducted from your inventory after purchase>


After seeing the price Arnold immediately searched the shop for bullets for [VINDICATOR]. According to the description, [VINDICATOR] needed to be used with <basic enchanted bullets>, so he selected them.


<Basic enchanted bullets>

Description : These are the basic tier bullets that are required to be used by <Gunslingers >. These are the cheapest set of bullets but will get the job done.

Price : 10 bullets/ per basic beast crystal.

<The amount would be automatically deducted from your inventory after purchase>


"I need beast crystals to purchase anything from the shop!" Arnold gritted his teeth.

Although he could buy basic beast crystals from the guild or the black market, he didn't want to unnecessarily waste his money on something like beast crystals.

"Tomorrow I'll ask The vice president about it, and if he refused then I'll go behind their backs and do it either way."

It was getting late so he headed towards the bed to get some sleep. Tomorrow was a big day after all.

I'll be releasing one more chapter today, because I kinda feel that the release rates are but slow.

I hope you guys like this idea.

thanks for the support!
