I literally got reviews stating that having disclaimers at the beginning of Chapter 1 turned them off from reading the story, so they didn't.

The Disclaimers are there because my story is a bit different from the normal Gamer stories you read out there. This is just a heads up.

No story appeals to everyone, nor do I expect mine to do so.

In my eyes, I write this story for fun, and I choose to share it with the rest of you.

I hope that Readers will leave reviews for each chapter. Whether it's just encouragement, feedback, or questions, I really appreciate it. I usually message back to anyone who asks questions or provides feedback. It also gives me more motivation to write for this story.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING DISCLAIMERS BEFORE READING THIS STORY. THESE ARE ALL THINGS I MYSELF WOULD LIKE TO KNOW BEFORE I START READING SOMEONE ELSE'S ONE PIECE STORY, SO I'M LETTING YOU GUYS KNOW IN ADVANCE. THEN, YOU CAN DETERMINE WHETHER YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO READ THIS STORY OR NOT. THERE AREN'T ANY REAL SPOILERS.

Please note that this is a Gamer story with an undetermined route as of now. The story will probably follow the plot.

I HAVE GREATLY NERFED THE GAMER SYSTEM. I personally think that the way I've nerfed the gamer makes it more conducive towards writing a fun gamer story, without having a ridiculously fast power creep, or annoying myself with lots of numbers and notifications.

The MC will not have a Devil Fruit. He already has a Gamer System, which is already OP. He doesn't need a devil fruit. There are many other stories out there with Devil Fruit MCs. Just not this one.

If you want a story with an OP protagonist from the start, and can somehow take on and rule the entire world in a few months of grinding, this may not be the story for you. This is a weak to strong story.

This is also a multi-crossover story with different people from other anime/manga/video games and other stories showing up. If that bothers anyone, sorry in advance. If there's any anime/manga that you feel would be interesting to add in, PM me and let me know who and how you would do it. Maybe if it peaks my interest, I'll put it in.

The Formatting is weird on this site and looks nothing like when I type it myself. I don't know how to fix it.

This is also a slow burn sort of story. Plot progresses slowly.

I make frequent changes to chapters. Generally, by adding scenes that add more to the plot or character development. I would say that I'm sorry about all the changes that I'm continuously making, but I'm really not. I'm enjoying doing these changes, because they generally make the overall story better.

The Tutorial System is all caps. Get over it. I'm not rewriting it all

If you are all still with me, then I hope you enjoy the ride!]

Chapter 1

I have no idea what happened. Yesterday, I went to sleep in my bed, and when I woke up the next morning, I was in an unknown place in a white room with a blue screen in front of my eyes.

CONGRATULATIONS MR. KRISHNA KHANNA! YOU HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR A TRANSMIGRATION EXPERIENCE TO THE ONE PIECE WORLD! TO HELP IMPROVE SURVIVAL ODDS, YOU HAVE BEEN GIFTED WITH A SYSTEM. PLEASE INDICATE WHEN YOU LIKE TO START THE TUTORIAL.

"Hello? Anyone there?" I shouted. No one responded. "If anyone is out there, please help me! I don't know what's going on!" What was happening? Why am I being thrown into another world, like all of those stories I've read on the internet? I don't like this. I didn't want this.

I yelled for help for a little while but nothing happened. I don't understand why this is happening, nor was I given any choice in the matter. No ROB or God appeared to explain anything or provide answers. Only the appearance of a blue screen in a freakishly clean white room. I banged against the walls for a while too in case someone would be able to hear me. I hoped this was all just a prank, but nothing proved it to be the case. I have been effectively kidnapped and I didn't know why. I was ordinary, but I was living a happy life. I don't want this.

There was nothing but the same message that had appeared in front of me earlier. I stared at the screen for a while to process that I was now going to the One Piece world.

I don't know how I got here. In just one night, everything has changed. I would never hear my parent's voices again, or see my sister and my nephew playing together. I would never be able to joke around with my cousins again or party with all of my extended family. I would never be able to go out to dinner with my friends again or party or play board games with them.

I would never see my girlfriend again. Never see her smile or tease her. I'd never be able to hold her hand again or hear her laugh. I'd never be able to kiss her and hold her in my arms again. I'd never get to eat her cooking again. I'd never be able to propose to her, like I was planning, under the stars.

There was so much I wanted to do with all of them, and now, that would never happen.

There was so much to see there, so much natural and manmade beauty that I would never be able to see anymore.

I wanted to go to Hawaii and see volcanoes and hang out on the beach.

I wanted to go to Japan and go see the cherry blossoms, or that place with all of the anime stuff.

I wanted to go to Australia to see the Kangaroos.

I wanted to go see the Royal Palace and other attractions in England.

I wanted to see the Penguins in Antarctica.

I wanted to go to Bunny Island and feed the rabbits.

I wanted to go to Paris and see the Eiffel Tower and Louvre.

I wanted to see shows like the Blue Man Group and David Copperfield in person.

I wanted to try different foods from Michelin Star Restaurants.

I wanted to have a golden retriever and play with my dog every day.

I wanted to read so many more stories in my lifetime.

I wanted to get married and have children with my girlfriend.

I wanted to have a home with a nice backyard that we could all hang out in.

I wanted to write and publish a book that others would praise.

I wanted my parents to see how happy I would have been.

I wanted so many things...

I don't know how much time it took me to snap out of it. I hadn't died tragically or anything like in other stories.

Or maybe I died in my sleep. That's what I'm going to assume happened, for my own sanity.

I'm not ashamed to admit, I cried for a while. I had lost more than I ever thought I could. Although my life was ordinary, I was extraordinarily happy, and that was all taken away from me.

Eventually, when I was able to take control of my emotions again, I looked at that message again. My mind started to wander a bit. Although I disliked what was happening, I really liked the story of One Piece.

Do I really want to go live in the One Piece world, filled with happiness and tragedy, and most importantly mayhem? I'm not sure. I have mixed feelings about this.

Does that mean I have a chance of joining the Straw Hat Pirates? Wait, do I even want to be a part of the main story? Those guys used to constantly do crazy things. Survival would be hard. Do I even want to be a pirate? Should I remain a normal independent person? Should I join the marines? No, the marines have some weird shit going on, with corruption, leadership problems, human experimentation, and other problems. I don't want to be a part of that cesspool. Will I even go there during the time of the main events? Shit. I have no idea. One would hope so.

My thoughts were all jumbled up. I took some time to calm down again. There was just too much craziness happening. First I lost everything, and then I was told that I was getting a system and sent to One Piece. It was too much.

I needed time to reach acceptance. I sat down, closed my eyes, and just breathed. I let the emotions just flow through me and tumble along. I have no idea how long I sat there, but I feel like it was a very long time. I had a lot to accept and move on.

Eventually, I opened my eyes and looked at the blue screen again. My old life was gone and I was a Gamer now. I can get stronger and do whatever I want, if I put my mind to it. I don't have to make any decisions about what I'm going to do in the One Piece world right now, but I should start the tutorial. It's not like I have any way to get back home, nor anyone that'll be coming to rescue me from here. Despite my feelings, the only choice was to move forward.

PLEASE CHOOSE USER PREFERENCE AT THIS TIME.

Wow! There are 13 races to choose from, and they are vastly different. I didn't expect to be able to choose my race. I look through them all and I try to think of everything I can remember about these races from what I remember from the story.

Right off the bat, I can cross out some of the choices on the list.

I don't want to be a Cyborg, because I don't want to be part robot. Plus, parts will probably be an issue in terms of finding them and affording them. It's also probably difficult to obtain worthwhile technology with significant strength. Franky only got cooler after the time skip and Dr. Vegapunk's designs. Also, Gamer's Body trait wouldn't be able to heal the non-biological parts. That's one of the Gamer's most advantageous traits. Regeneration over time is super important. That would cripple one of my powers.

Modified human has a lot of cool things, but it also has a lot of bad things. The master combatant trait seems extremely useful for fighting. The exoskeleton would be cool, but it doesn't fix itself. That random devil fruit ability is also pretty awesome. I remember the original Vinsmoke siblings also had some cool devil fruit like powers. On the other hand, the emotionless trait was pretty bad. I didn't want to be like those guys. Unless Gamer's Mind overrode it, but I wouldn't count on that. It would make it into a problem to join a good crew like the Straw Hats or function normally in society. I'd only be able to join up with vicious crews or certain groups in the World Government, and I don't think I want that. Also, I think I would be forced to start as part of the Vinsmoke family or the World Government since they are among the few that are known to be able to manipulate the lineage factor. Those aren't people I would like to be with.

I'm taking giants off the list for one major reason. I would require a special ship if I want to travel. I wouldn't be able to travel with the Straw Hats or other crews easily. Probably couldn't even travel easily with the Marines. Might start in Elbaf, which is cool, but still. Life would probably be less adventurous than I would like, since giants are known to be the greatest protectors. Also, getting armor and weapons would be a bitch.

The Snakeneck clan doesn't have anything special over humans except the enhanced reflexes. Why would I choose this over human then? In addition, that long neck seems like a huge weak point. Also, they just feel unattractive. This one is rejected.

Longarm and Longleg tribes seem kind of lame. They just don't interest me. I also don't want to be involved in that weird war of hate between races.

The Three-eyed tribe doesn't have anything useful except for the Voice of all Things, which is interesting as it is something the Pirate King, Gol D. Roger, had. On the other hand, I don't think it is necessary at all. Most people obviously survive without it. Being a prime capture target for slavery and other unspeakable things isn't worth it, especially because all gamers start out weak. If I get caught right away, I'll be screwed. I also have no idea what my starting point will be. The description also says that I won't be able to get any additional traits at the tutorial. That's probably because the Voice of all Things is an extremely useful ability.

Dwarves would have been decent if they didn't have that gullible trait. Their Strength, Speed and Dexterity are amazing. They are a powerful race. On top of which, they have natural stealth and are great at growing all plants. Their negative trait of gullible is a deal breaker though. I wouldn't want to fall for something that my enemies say, even when it's clearly obvious it isn't true. I'm sure the system would force me to fall for stupid lies that no one would fall for, and result in wisdom or intelligence stat penalities. It would make it easy for people to control my actions. I'd probably end up believing everything Ussop says, which would be messed up. I cannot allow myself to be that trusting towards strangers, so that's rejected.

Merfolk is rejected because I would be limited to the sea. Mermen don't ever develop legs to travel on land. Wouldn't be a huge deal, but still. I don't want to be limited like that. I think I want to be able to explore the world, and Mermen just wouldn't cut it. They are pretty good otherwise.

I'm really mainly considering the Fish-men, Mink People, Wotans, and Humans.

I'm considering the Fish-men because they possess great survival abilities in the ocean. Their ability to breathe underwater perhaps being the most important. You know you won't drown. Escape is possible in the seas even if your ship is destroyed. Plus, they are stronger than humans. On the other hand, fish-men are discriminated against the most out of all races. I'm not really sure why, because there are many different races that are different in the One Piece world. I believe this discrimination is also used to keep that race in check and prevent them from completely ruling the seas. Being wanted by slavers is another annoying thing. Also, they also apparently earn traits much slower than normal. I don't know what they are for, but I'm guessing they are something I would want.

Minks are also pretty awesome. They have strength, speed, strong bodies with a healing factor, awesome stealth, can generate electricity for use in combat, and have a powerful transformation. Minks are also a super united race, with strong bonds that extremely good care of each other. That sounds amazing. But, they have a number of annoying negative traits. They have a picky diet, are socially awkward, and animal instincts seem like a 50/50 thing. None of them are horrible, but they feel very inconvenient when put together. Unfortunately, the Mink race also has a major weakness of heat susceptibility. There are ways to cover a weakness, but still. The powerful transformation also leads to a reduction in skill progress and a 2 day weakness. Of course, there's that decrease in trait acquisition.

Wotans are an amazing hybrid. You get the best of both worlds of giant and Fish-men. They have all of the strength of giants to a lesser degree with the underwater abilities of Fish-men. They were like a super power on the seas. They could travel on bigger ships too. The only thing that was stopping me from choosing this right away was that this race could never earn traits. I'm not sure how useful they are, but based on the balancing of the races, traits must be very important.

Lastly, there are humans, which are the weakest, but have the option of choosing seven traits and are much faster at gaining traits. As a result, it kind of feels like traits are equal to potential. Or something that can increase potential. Because all the races are 'probably' balanced.

Honestly, knowing that I am a Gamer, I don't feel the need to choose any other race, because the system itself will make me stronger no matter what as long as I work hard. Rather than choose a race that might lead to a larger disadvantage with my when, where, and backstory, and permanently cripple me with negative traits, it's probably better to choose humans. Low power initially for high growth potential later versus high power initially for decreased growth potential. I'm going to take that gamble. It doesn't hurt that humans basically rule the world, and it's easier to fit in.

"I choose Human."

ACKNOWLEDGED. HUMAN RACE SELECTED. PLEASE SELECT ORIGIN FROM THE FOLLOWING:

East Blue Dweller – Basic East Blue occupant with random background and location. Peaceful starting point. No Starting Bonus.

North Blue Dweller – Basic North Blue occupant with random background and location. Wartorn starting point. Starting bonus: Unarmed fighting skill.

South Blue Dweller – Basic South Blue occupant with random background and location. Underworld starting point. Starting bonus: Stealth and Dagger skills.

West Blue Dweller – Basic West Blue occupant with random background and location. Kingdom starting point. Starting bonus: Management and etiquette skills.

Grand Line Dweller – Basic Grand Line occupant with random background and location. You have adapted to the unusual environment of the Grand Line and become tougher. Starting bonus: body's physical traits all increased by 1.

World Noble (Celestial Dragons) – Human Royalty that commands the world. Possess influence and tremendous wealth to do as they please. Starting Penalty: Decrease in all skill gain by a factor of three.

PLEASE STATE USER CHOICE AT THIS TIME.

So am I starting around the same at the Straw Hat Pirates? It doesn't say. If I do, I'll have more knowledge to decide things because I'll know general events.

I wouldn't want to be dropped off randomly on some island in the New World in the Grand Line. I'm not insane. It isn't worth jeopardizing my survival for a starting bonus.

The World Nobles sound like a bad place to be. Like it might be all fun and games in the beginning, but they've made an enemy out of basically everyone in existence. I don't want to have to worry about dying all the time in the future. The general trend seems to be towards deposing them. I suppose I could try to change that, but I don't want to be the crazy evil overlord that ruins everyone's life. Also that decrease in skill gain is crazy harsh.

I think if I'm in the East Blue, I'll have a greater chance of getting in contact with the Straw Hat Pirates sooner, unless it throws me into a different time period. I could also choose other routes, but this gives me more options. Most importantly, East Blue was the weakest and safest of all the seas, and I have relative knowledge about what's around. The others have too many unknowns.

"East Blue Dweller, please."

A screen appeared with my current appearance.

ACKNOWLEDGED. OPTION TO CUSTOMIZE USER APPEARANCE AS YOU LIKE.

My height had been adjusted automatically by the system so it was more towards the average range of One Piece world's people. I tried to change it so I wasn't overweight anymore, but it wouldn't allow me to. I guess it was only going to allow cosmetic changes. I decided to tweak my facial structure a bit to make it more symmetrical and attractive. I had black hair, brown eyes, and brown skin. Other than that, I left everything else the same. No tattoos or weird gnarly scars for me.

"WHAT? I can't have any devil fruits? WHY?"

PROCESSING QUERY…GAMER'S BODY IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH DEVIL FRUITS. GAMER'S BODY TAKES PRECEDENCE.

Dammit. No wait, calm down. Even though I can't get any devil fruit powers, I'm still a gamer. I won't be weak if I work at it.

"Aren't I also supposed to have Gamer's Mind?"

PROCESSING QUERY...TRAIT DOES NOT EXIST, THEREFORE, CANNOT BE ACQUIRED BY THE USER. USER ONLY RECEIVED A GAMER'S BODY.

Shit. This just keeps on getting worse. Gamer's Mind is a strong trait that kept Han Ji-Han sane throughout his adventures in the Abyss and prevented all mind altering effects. I'm not sure I have the ability to get through everything without it. I can't do this. No way. It's going to be too hard. I've lost everything, been thrown into this situation, and I'm already missing something important and-

NO. Stop. Calm down, breathe, and move forward. I force myself to health all of the unhealthy thoughts. It takes a bit, but I get there. No Gamer's Mind trait or devil fruits. I can still handle this. It's not the end of the world. I'm still a gamer that can get a lot stronger.

I took a look at my status again and I was quite surprised. This didn't look like how Han Ji-Han's screen looked like. It was different. Strangely enough, something very important seemed to be missing.

"Hey System? Where does it show my level and stats?"

PROCESSING QUERY…PLEASE NOTE THAT USER DOES NOT DOES NOT HAVE STATS. USER ALSO DOES NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO LEVEL UP. THE SYSTEM IS BASED ON SKILLS.

"WHAT? Then how am I supposed to get stronger?"

PROCESSING QUERY…USER MUST USE HIS OWN EFFORT OBTAINING AND IMPROVING SKILLS TO INCREASE CHARACTER ABILITY OR ACQUIRE TRAITS THAT DO SO. QUEST REWARDS MAY ALSO AFFECT THE USER'S CHARACTER SHEET.

Son of a B-! Okay, things just became a lot more difficult without being able to level up or train/grind stats. Not sure if this can get any worse. Just breathe. Stay Calm and breathe. Focus on the beautiful One Piece women or something. That's better. More calm.

Nothing to do but to keep moving forward. Everything could always be worse. There could be no system.

"Is there anything else that this gamer system can't do that I should know about right now?" Mind you, it was a rhetorical question, but…

THERE ARE NO "SKILL BOOKS" AVAILABLE TO LEARN SKILLS INSTANTLY. USER MUST LEARN SKILLS ON THEIR OWN OR FROM A TEACHER THROUGH HARD WORK.

USER DOES NOT HAVE AN "OPTIONS MENU" TO CHANGE ANY SETTINGS SUCH AS DIFFICULTY.

USER DOES NOT HAVE A SYSTEM MARKETPLACE TO PURCHASE ANY ITEMS, SKILLS, TRAITS, OR BLOODLINES WITH MONEY.

DEATH IS PERMANENT

No party system, no observation skill, no loot, and no marketplace. Any one of those other races would have provided a significant power boost, in exchange for some of my future potential. If I had known the negatives of the system, like no level ups or loot, before I had to choose my race, I probably wouldn't have gone with Human. Like a Fish-men or Wotan would have allowed me to live comfortably and explore without any problems in exchange for some future potential.

"System, can I change my race to something else?"

PROCESSING QUERY...DENIED. PREVIOUS SELECTIONS ARE UNABLE TO BE CHANGED.

Damn. This system is much weaker compared to the original version of the system that Han Ji-Han had. Basically, the One Piece World will be like real life, except I can see my own skill progress. Great...

CONTINUING TUTORIAL… PLEASE STATE OR THINK "INVENTORY".

Oh thank god. I opened my inventory to see that there appeared to be a large number of empty boxes.

USER HAS ONE HUNDRED INVENTORY SLOTS THAT CAN BE STACKED INFINITELY WITH THE SAME OBJECT.

Finally, something that can be helpful on this journey. At least I won't have a problem carrying anything. That is a positive that can't be denied.

CONTINUING TUTORIAL… PLEASE STATE OR THINK "MISSIONS".

I opened up the missions tab, and there is a mission to complete the tutorial.

MISSIONS MAY BE ISSUED AT ANY TIME AND MAY PROVIDE LUCRATIVE REWARDS. ALL MISSIONS ARE OPTIONAL AND USEFUL TO THE USER. THERE ARE NO SYSTEM PENALTIES FOR AVOIDANCE OR FAILURE OF MISSIONS.

Well, at least that is something. If missions were going to be mandatory and failure conditions, I might as well shoot myself in the head now and save others the trouble. Thankfully, I wasn't completely backed into a corner.

THIS WORLD IS REAL. WHATEVER MISSIONS YOU DO OR DON'T DO MAY HAVE REAL WORLD CONSEQUENCES UNRELATED TO THE SYSTEM. THE USER IS ENCOURAGED TO DO AS THEY WISH.

Well, that sounds ominous. Real world consequences...system doesn't affect anything other than myself. So if I do a quest, the system won't protect me from the consequences, good or bad.

CONTINUING TUTORIAL… PLEASE STATE OR THINK "TRAIT SHOP".

When the shop appeared, it gave me a long list that I could scroll through.

IN GENERAL, TRAITS CAN IMPROVE THE USER'S POWER OR INCREASE THE USER'S POTENTIAL IN A SPECIFIC AREA. TRAITS MAY HAVE BOTH POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE ASPECTS THAT CAN AFFECT THE USER. TRAITS MAY BE ACQUIRED BY COMPLETING MISSIONS. THIS IS THE ONLY TIME THE USER WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE TRAIT SHOP UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES. PLEASE CHOOSE WISELY, AS TRAITS WILL BE PERMANENT ONCE IN EFFECT AND UNABLE TO BE REMOVED.

So any traits that I choose are permanent? I definitely need to be very careful when selecting things.

USER SELECTED HUMAN RACE…PROCESSING…USER HAS COMPLETE ACCESS TO ALL TRAITS OTHER THAN RACE SPECIFIC ONES. USER IS ALLOWED TO CHOOSE ANY SEVEN TRAITS DUE TO CHOOSING HUMAN RACE. PLEASE SCROLL THROUGH THE TRAIT LIST AND SELECT YOUR CHOICES.

Wow, at least I'm not completely screwed here by choosing the human race. A menu popped up in front of me. There were many Traits up for selection. Some of them were upgradeable attribute based traits.

Powerful (Level 1) – User's strength has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Strength are more effective.

Resilient (Level 1) – User's constitution has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Constitution are more effective.

Agile (Level 1) – User's speed has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Agility are more effective.

Dexterous (Level 1) – User's nimbleness has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Dexterity are more effective.

Charm (Level 1) – User's charisma has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Charm are more effective. User's appearance changes to become more attractive.

Intelligence (Level 1) – User's intellectual level has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Intelligence are more effective.

Sagacious (Level 1) – User's wisdom has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Wisdom are more effective.

Intuition (Level 1) – User's perception has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Perception are more effective.

Resolve (Level 1) – User's willpower has broken the corresponding limit. Skills based on one's Willpower are more effective.

I will be able to get more traits in the future and it appears that some of them can also be upgraded over time. Eventually maxing all of these would be best.

There was also a section of traits that were similar to the Straw Hat's professions.

Brawler (Specialist) – All Free Style Fighting skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Swordsman (Specialist) – All Sword based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Navigator (Specialist) – All Navigation based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Thief (Specialist) – All Thief based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Cook (Specialist) – All Cooking based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Sniper (Specialist) – All Shooting based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Doctor (Specialist) – All Healing based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Archeologist (Specialist) – Understanding of History and Lore grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Carpenter (Specialist) – All Carpentry based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Mechanic (Specialist) – All Mechanic based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Musician (Specialist) – All Music based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Although they weren't upgradeable, they were powerful. It was possible to pick more than one profession trait, but the decreased skill growth would stack, quickly making it impossible to learn any skills at all. There were also many other profession based traits as well. These are just a few of them.

Pirate (Specialist) – All Pirate based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Marine (Specialist) – All Marine based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Bounty Hunter (Specialist) – All Bounty Hunter based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Martial Artist (Specialist) – All martial arts based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

Assassin (Specialist) – All Assassination based skills grow ten times faster. All other skills grow seven times slower.

All Rounder – All skills grow twice as fast, all physical ability is halved.

Crafter (Specialist) - All production based skills grow ten times faster. All combat based skills grow ten times slower.

It was interesting to know that there were a lot of different professions out there. I don't plan on choosing any profession based traits. I don't know which direction my overall build is going to go towards. I don't know what interests me and what direction I wish to go. Maybe I won't even take any sort of general path, but be a Jack of all Trades, like most gamers.

I also don't want to take on any negative modifiers for all skills for just a single set of skills. The system refuses to allow any changes to prior selections, so now that I'm stuck with being human, making choices that reduce my potential in any way doesn't feel like the smart choice. One of the advantages of being a gamer is the ability to do almost anything. I'm skipping these for now.

...

There were a plethora of special abilities and traits on the list. Apparently, it was like taking a devil fruit. Many were already high on my list to obtain. The only problem was that taking certain abilities would remove the ability to have many others. I would also lose my system and be relegated to whatever I currently have. I had to choose between them all to get the best combination.

There was another section of interesting traits that I didn't notice before. They were Limited time only traits, and only available during the Tutorial. It was impossible to obtain them through any means later.

Pathfinder (Limited Time Only) – Many Missions will be made available in each area without having to stumble upon them first.

Plot Seeking (Limited Time Only) – You are drawn towards the main plot of the story. Missions related to the characters of the story tend to have higher rewards.

Early Riser (Limited Time Only) – Your abilities increase much faster in the first six months.

Otherworldly Attraction (Limited Time Only) – Your presence causes distortions to occur across the multiverse.

Helpful (Limited Time Only) - You are twice as likely to uncover hidden missions.

Pacifist (Limited Time Only) - Maintains an amicable relationship with all groups, if you don't take action against them.

Starting Island (Limited Time Only) - Choose whatever island you would like to start at in the world

Nepotism (Limited Time Only) - Born into a higher position in society. Starts out with a certain level of power and influence.

Mixed Blood (Limited Time Only) - Able to be part human, part 'another' race

….

These traits seemed to be pretty useful, and this was the only time I would ever be able to get them easily.

Firstly, professions were out. The negative modifiers were not worth it. Why waste a free trait on a weak trait? Same thing with the attribute based traits. They seemed like something I could get over time on my own.

I had to take Supernatural Talent so I could be more versatile. I think this trait would allow me to use magic. Magic was one of the Gamer's ultimate strengths. Probably. It wasn't exactly natural in One Piece either, so I'm not sure I would be able to use and learn magic without the trait. Better safe than sorry with this system.

Of course, Martial talent was also pretty good, and in my opinion, necessary. Although it doesn't provide any immediate power ups like the special abilities, it made learning to fight and learn martial arts a lot easier. I wasn't a fighter back on earth. I was a weakling. In fact, I would go as far as to say that I had zero talent for fighting. There was one time I tried to learn boxing, and failed miserably. I also tried brazilian jiu jitsu, and got beaten repeatedly. I just didn't have that instinct to fight. I need this to take care of that shortcoming.

Genius was a must to learn all sorts of skills. As someone with a skill system, Skills are obviously the most important thing for improving my strength. A trait that lowers the requirements for learning different skills is really important in the long run.

The Resistance Body trait was also incredibly important and would help me develop skills to mitigate damage. The original gamer could do this, but I need to use a trait to get this ability. It's a shame, but it would significantly reduce my defensive capabilities if I didn't get this.

I'm not connecting myself to angels or demons. I'm a Gamer. I don't need them as a power source. Plus, usually they are crazy extreme on both ends. Angels are irritatingly preachy, destroy everything that isn't up to their standards, and will want me to help save people's souls constantly. Demons seduce people towards doing evil acts, are known for betrayal, work on survival of the fittest, and will want to to help them corrupt or steal souls. Either way, I don't want to deal with them telling me what to do. I want to do what I want, without worrying if my power source is going to cut me off for doing it.

When you look at the special abilities, they are reminiscent of Marvel Mutants. In exchange for immediate power of a single special ability, I would be cut off from having powerful traits and the Gamer System! The system is the strongest thing in my arsenal, however nerfed it might be. A skill system is still better than no system. I'm not sure what would be required for me to give that up willingly.

Healing factor seemed like a good one, as everyone wanted to be like Wolverine. However, as a gamer, I also had a certain level of regeneration of my own that would probably grow stronger as I grew stronger. Even if I lost a limb, it will come back eventually because I had a Gamer's Body. There was no need to go out of my way for that trait, and lose the Gamer System.

Duplicator was actually a great ability. I had a hard time not choosing this ability. As a duplicator, I could have trained the same way Naruto did to make up for the lack of talent. It would have been a more potent shadow clone skill. It would have allowed me to train up different skills at the same time, and be everywhere at once. All I can say is that I didn't want to lose my Gamer System, and I really wanted to use magic, so I didn't choose this. It didn't help that I also wouldn't be able to take the Martial Talent, Genius, Haki Prodigy, or Resistance Body traits in the future. On one side, I would focus all my potential and power into one body. The other way was to make a large clone army to learn different skills like a normal person without a system. If I completely focused on offensive skills on top of that, I could probably use clones to take down my enemies, even if it required a kamikaze effort. At the end of the day, I chose to focus all of my strength into one place instead of using clones. After all, the duplicator ability has the main body as the weakness. If it goes down, all of the clones go down with it. All it takes is one lucky shot, or an intelligent and well-informed opponent.

Super strength or super speed were also great abilities for anyone who has watched Superman or the Flash. However, without the Resistance Body Trait, I could still be taken out using poison, logia type fruits, mental attacks, acid, or other unconventional methods. They weren't invincible.

Flight seemed like an ability that could be eventually reproduced with magic so I didn't bother with it. It was cool, but not necessary.

Mind Reading was another great ability that I had trouble not choosing. If you are able to pluck information as you please out of people's minds without them realizing a thing or you know all of your enemy's movements in advance, then you have a great advantage over people. Coupling that with Haki, and you have a powerful combo. I ended up not taking this because I feel like anyone who could read minds would be on the Marines must-obtain human list to be used to obtain information for them forever. They might even experiment on me, especially since it isn't actually a devil fruit ability like the Giro Giro No Mi. Also, I would lose the Gamer System, which didn't seem like it was worth it. Maybe I could learn it on my own later as a Gamer Skill. Who knows?

Phasing didn't seem like something I needed and Shapeshifting could probably be replaced by illusion magic in the future.

Life Absorption was just sucking the life out of people by touch. Even if it was to the level of Rogue's ability, and I could temporarily gain other people's strength, this ability was not worth the demerits. It would only provide me a temporary power up, which isn't good enough for me. Plus, if it was like Rogue's, I didn't want to go crazy from absorbing other people's memories. There were other abilities, but I wouldn't take any of them. And losing the Gamer ability for this was dumb.

Haki Prodigy was lower on the list because it was unnecessary at the moment compared to the others that I chose. Even in the Grand Line, Haki wasn't exactly a common thing. Only stronger people in the New World tended to have and use that power. This choice was a strategic one, based on my brains and not what I wanted. It wasn't necessary starting out. Also, I'm guessing that using Haki will have some sort of requirements on the body because I remember that a large amount of training was required to unlock it. Especially with this system, anything is possible, and I am more than willing to assume that the system will screw me over there too. On the other hand, taking Genius should be able to mitigate some of this. It's also likely that I would be able to learn haki, even without this trait. It would just be more difficult. You had to create the appropriate balance between the short and long term benefit.

The last three choices seemed incredibly important as well. They were the Special traits of Pathfinder, Plot seeking, and Otherworldly Attraction. After I left the tutorial, I would never be able to gain these traits ever again through any means.

Pathfinder was an incredibly important skill. Having a list of missions that I could do in an area, without having to stumble upon them first saved a lot of time. In a world where strength is everything, time is more important than you would believe. Also, I might be able to shift things in my favor if I know the right people or learn the right information.

Plot seeking would put me into the thick of things and make it possible to rapidly improve my strength and gain better rewards. Also, it would make sure that it would put me near events I'm familiar with, instead of some random era in the past or future.

Otherworldly attraction...that one, I took a gamble on. It was this one, or Haki Prodigy. It seemed like something that would shake things up in the original story, and possibly provide me with opportunities to improve my strength. Also, it's another trait that I wouldn't be able to get later, so I chose this one over Haki Prodigy.

Early riser was useless after a certain point. It only lasted six months.

Helpful was useful in discovering hidden missions, but only doubled my chance of stumbling on one. My original chances were probably already really low at around 1% to 5%, so a double chance wasn't worth using up a free trait. Hidden missions were considered hidden for a reason.

Pacifist wasn't in the game, and I was likely to go against people after a certain point.

Nepotism wasn't necessary for someone with the gamer ability, and I didn't want to be placed automatically into a faction.

Mixed blood was interesting, and a chance to become half a race, but I went against it because I just didn't want to receive negative modifiers to my race, and reduce its potential.

Starting Island was interesting. I could just choose Raftel, or Laugh Tale. Not really sure what the actual name is of the final island. It would be worth it just to get the answer to the mystery that has been building up forever. But no, I wanted to enjoy the world too, and not be stuck on an island I probably wouldn't be able to escape after learning the truth. Who knows, I might just die the moment I step on that island. Regardless, this wasn't needed, since I chose the Plot Seeking Trait. I'm sure wherever I am placed, I'll encounter the main plot in East Blue.

After going through everything. I chose Genius, Resistance Body, Martial Talent, Supernatural Talent, Path Finder, Plot Seeking, and Otherworldly attraction. I hope the Otherworldly Attraction Trait is just as useful as the Haki Prodigy trait, otherwise it'll be a complete waste.

TRAIT SELECTION IS COMPLETE. CONTINUING TUTORIAL…MENU TABS HAVE BEEN COMPLETED. CONTINUING TUTORIAL…PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR CHOICE FOR NOTIFICATIONS: IMMEDIATE POP-UP MESSAGES, UNOBTRUSIVE POP-UP MESSAGES, OR POP-UP MESSAGES THAT CAN BE READ LATER IN A FOLDER.

I opted for the unobtrusive messages. I have to make sure to actually read those, otherwise I'll totally forget. If I do the immediate ones, it might obscure combat, and if I do the minimized ones, I might not notice important information until it's no longer useful. Better to keep the notifications coming to the side and peruse them at my own time.

UNOBTRUSIVE POP-UP MESSAGES SELECTED. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL NOTIFICATIONS WILL BE PAUSED DURING COMBAT, UNLESS THEY ARE DIRECTLY RELATED TO MISSION INFORMATION AND UPDATES, IN WHICH CASE THEY WILL APPEAR IN THE CORNER OF YOUR VISION UNTIL YOU HAVE TIME TO VIEW THEM. PLEASE REVIEW YOUR CHARACTER SHEET.

'Oh Shit' was the only thing I could think of before I blacked out.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I've been asked why I didn't just make this story without a system. That's because it started out a lot different than it is now. The comparison of now and before is quite huge. I know, because I saved the previous drafts. If I was going to write the story from scratch again, I wouldn't make the MC into a gamer. Of course, there wouldn't be crossover elements either then like the current story.

As it is, there are still ways the system changes things up for the MC. The System just doesn't grant strength directly to the MC.

Please note that the Genius Trait does not affect the MCs intelligence. It just makes it easier for him to learn things.

All of the races were described because there may be people who are reading this because it's a Gamer System story, but don't know about One Piece itself. And I wanted it to be a part of the Tutorial, and the MC to have the option to choose differently if he wanted to. Which he didn't.
