Warning! There may be numbers involved. You have been warned. 

You came from the other world to battle against evil hordes of demons and guide your summoner to safety. Your fang and claws are your best weapons but the greatest power lies within your mind, what you will make of it is a secret you have to discover for yourself, learn to use it well and your enemies shall cower before you!

Try checking again a second time with each option, I rigged it that way to portray a more realistic approach. You can't just stop checking every nook and canny when your enemy is still lurking in the area. As for the gremlins, did you find out which value of AP would make for a successful "Scratch?" One thing to keep in mind is that after you win, both your AP and SP will be converted and added to your max health so if you use skill too much, you are in for a tough time against dangerous monsters that could finish you off in 2 hits.

I'm writing a story where you defeat enemies using only basic math and stuff. It's better if you try it instead of me rambling how it works. Or better yet, watch this instead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1S9irAGrnSg&t=87s I'd like to hear your opinion on the battle system and probably the hint given before every fight (only 2 for now, the first one is peachy but the second one is kinda annoying). I need to get this out of my system before moving on.

It was a problem I had when I first started, I tended to overanalyze everything and ended up with a gaudy great wall of text that I dreaded to sit through after. I personally found myself catching more breaks when writing in 2nd person than the others.

CYOS focuses on 2nd person writing at most. 1st person limits your perspective on the protagonist and 3rd person emphasizes too much of everything that it can get overwhelming at times. Writing in 2nd person is like going to a buffet where you could hop in and hope you'll find something you'll enjoy while ignoring the rest.
