Chapter 10: Traveling East

“Avg Lv9 already?! Nee-chan, how? How?!”

Toru stuffed his face with food.

Ah, because Mom insisted, I sent him a text, If you don’t get off in 5 seconds and come eat…, and left what I would do to him purposefully ambiguous.

I suppose that was enough to threaten him, because several minutes later, I heard,

Bang, crash, thud thud thud

as the chibi hurriedly came down the stairs, careening into the wall.

Ah, he’s having problems walking in a straight line. Played too long, has he?

He hasn’t logged off, just gone afk. (more…)

Alligator Killing

“Leader. The gakujinma are getting up onto the bank. It looks like they’re shivering because it’s cold, yo-. Seems like they’re lying down listlessly.” (Red)

When Red, who had gone to scout the situation of the bog, came back, he gave his report.
Leader Keryoil, sprawled on top of a large rock, said, “Good job,” lifting a hand.

“It looks like a good situation, but even if you say they can’t move, the other ones of those guys will respond if we attack. Vice-Leader, is it possible to use Fog Magic to obstruct their vision?”(Keryoil)

“It’s not like I can’t, but if you wanted me to cover the entire bog, it’s impossible.”(Fulmina)

Oo, Fog Magic huh? Mist floating above a bog has an elegant sound to it, na. (more…)

Chapter 69: There are a lot of Guys that Like to Show Off How They can Get Pretty Girlfriends, but Strangely, Usually No One Cares But Themselves.

“We decided not to tell the ones back at the capital about this yet. If we think about it, it’s not like knowing stuff like this would change anything right now.”

Masaki explained the situation that the 4 gamers from Carnus had decided on.

“Is that going to be ok though? Won’t they be mad if they find out later?”

I know I’d be pissed.

“When these guys go back and the others come to this city, I’ll tell them then.”

Seimei-san calmly replies.

It’s true that I think they might receive it better if they hear it from Seimei-san in person.

“What kind of people are they? The other gamers?”

“Um… there’s Karin, a High Knight, Hide, an Assassin, and Emi-chan, a Storm Mage.” (more…)

A/n: At last it’s a battle after entering Fairy Country.
Because of the immediate parade he was traveling by sky, after all.

Finally we Begin Hunting

“Excuse me-, I’ve subjugated 8 High Rabbit; please confirm it.”

Right now I’m at the southern fortress town.
In the place I’m at, the 1st floor is both a bar and a place that handles requests and the 2nd floor is an inn (I only found out about it later, but in the Fairy Country, it seems this is the standard layout for an inn).
I have accomplished 1 of the requests that was presented here, the request [Please subjugate 8 High Rabbits; we have been troubled since they are destroying our crops].

Chapter 68: Sometimes your Friends will Act Different in Front of their Friends than with their Family

“Is he going to be alright?”

I look over, and there is Ragnall, hanging out a little ways down the street.

“Ragnall, you didn’t head back yet?”

“I went to an information broker to hear if there were any suspicious movements towards Seimei-san, but then I came back. Although I don’t think it will be a secret much longer, until Seimei-san says otherwise, we need to make it seem like you’re not really affiliated with them. It would be strange for 1 guard to return when the other is still with the commissioner.”

Oh, I wasn’t even thinking about that. I feel like pretending I have nothing to do with the gamers was a lost cause from the beginning.

But, haa, he saw Masaki’s half-breakdown, huh? (more…)

A Momentary Dream

In front of the Queen who came to meet me, I dismounted the Pikarsha, kneeling down and lowering my head.
Although we’re always usually like THAT, this here is an official moment, and there’s something called matching the time, place and occasion; there’s no way I should break that. … I’ll be troubled if I get a bad reputation attached to me.

“For this current reception, I am thankful from the bottom of my heart, your majesty.”

A, she breathed a sigh of relief, the Queen. Of course I wouldn’t have the maliciousness to mess around in this kind of situation. (more…)

Chapter 9: The First Party(lol) Quest

After talking with the two hardcore crafters, it’s now early evening – in the game.

Although time flows the same in hours and minutes as real-life, the days and nights cycle in the game go in 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Maa, it’s something that you have to make allowances for in a VR game, I guess.

Because it’s early evening, the best place to hang out and hear gossip from the NPCs is the village tavern!

Complete with alcohol!

It’s pretty piss-poor beer though. (more…)

Dealing with Alligators

The boar cargo cart came to a stop due to a cave-in in the rocky mountains; lying down on top of the cart’s canopy, lying fully stretched out, is a man.

FUAAAAaaa. We’re about to enter those guys’ habitat, so you guys, look sharp, yo-“

“Then, I think Leader should come down from the top of the canopy.”

“Maybe I should stab him with my spear from underneath.”

I think it’s a good idea. Nice suggestion, Red-White twins. (more…)

Chapter 67: Different People have Different Levels of Stress for Different Types of Things

“… And so, starting over, this girl is Midori, and this guy here is Tatsumaki.”

Masaki introduced the two other gamers.

Tatsumaki (Whirlwind/Twisted Dragon) … probably his avatar name, huh? Come to think of it, I wonder what Seimei-san’s real name is.

“And on this side, it’s Jun, my childhood friend, and Ragnall. They’re Seimei-san’s guards for a few more days.”

“Hello, hello, like he said, I’m Midori, although the others call me Mi-chan sometimes, and we call this guy Tatsu or Baka-tsu, whichever one suits you!” (more…)

Off to Fairy Country

Fairy Country. Situated southeast of Nexia, there is a fortress that serves as a check station for each of the directions north, south, east, and west.
In order to gain passage, you are checked whether or not you hold high hostility towards Fairies, and then afterwards you’re asked to contribute towards public safety by subjugating monsters, or to bring in food to contribute to food supplies, or by providing a fixed amount of money, and then you’re granted passage.

Moreover, your visa has ranks, beginning from C all the way up to SS.
Rank C does not permit you to leave the fortress towns that are attached to the north, south, east or west checking stations. (more…)
