Even the Tough Spot will One Day be Captured
I’ve done my bow enhancement and finished replenishing my supplies; why don’t I head to the Fairy Country for the second time now; but when I finished making my preparations, an Information popped up.
— Urgent Information
At this time, we are truly grateful that everyone is enjoying One More・Free Life・Online. Currently, a Secret Boss of the Challenge of the Dead has been destroyed, and we have confirmed that the event has been completed.
As the result, right now a new category, 『Tonfa』has been added; tonfa is a hand-to-hand combat derivative; you are unable to make grappling attacks, but in exchange blocking effectiveness and power is increased. For more information, please wait for official homepage’s update. Once again …
Fumu, so a new weapon has been added… there were still brave souls who were repeatedly challenging that maze, huh?
But, this time the Information continued further.
— Furthermore, with this, Knight’s Sword, Tonfa, Halberd, Snake Sword, Oodachi, Wakyu; these 6 have been released; the dead who had been sealing these 6 have been completely purified.
With this, the event that is limited to the 21 Liberators has begun.
After the Information had flowed through, a woman’s voice began speaking through the world.
『Everyone, regarding the Dead’s Labyrinth, for releasing the dead who have been suffering for a very long time, I thank you. I am the shrine maiden originally in charge of the Dead’s Labyrinth.
Originally it was just a graveyard, but before one was aware, the collected grudges changed it; I as well was overtaken, and it changed into a labyrinth.
However, thanks to everyone, with the mighty 6’s grudges released, my soul was released as well. 』
So this backstory existed.
『Currently, I am continuing to purify the grudges that support this Labyrinth.
After another 2 weeks have passed it will be completely purified … the Labyrinth that has lost its support will naturally crumble away, I suppose.
At that time, I also will finally return to the heavens … however, before that, I would like to give the 21 Liberators who contributed to purifying the grudges a special reward and call out to them.』
So the 1-6 people parties that crushed each and every one of the Secret Bosses total 21.
『However, it’s unfortunate, but only 10 of this reward can be prepared. Therefore, all 21 of you honored people will have a PvP battle. For us, the war cries of the strong in victory are the greatest comfort; so another reason for it is to be the sustenance of purification. 』
It’s become another annoying matter.
『The moment of opening of this exhibition would be in you experts’ calendar as the next Saturday, commencing at 9 at night.The venue will be the meeting hall made in Nexia, so come no matter who you are to spectate.
Furthermore, just for indicating that you wish to participate, we offer you a participation reward of 50,000Glo. For this participation rewards, intending to participate but suddenly being unable to participate is not an exception.』
Immediately after these words were conveyed, a window spread out in front of my eyes.
【Will you participate in the Repose of Souls PvP battle? YES/NO】was written on it.
『Conversely, if you do not have the intention to participate … of course you will not be rewarded, and the Liberator title will be confiscated. Please understand. 』
At the moment I heard those words, I immediately pressed NO with a beep.
As if I’ll stand out any more than this! The conditions to the “converse” are good! was the decision I made in an instant.
『The rules are, the party members that you were with when you were purifying will be your team; on each field, you will fight so that 1 team remains.
Of course, we have solo to 6-man parties, so the party with fewer people will be enhanced as the correction.
Furthermore, it’s done in teams, but within that, separate from the team points, personal points are also attached, so be aware. There is a high probability that even if you’re in the remaining team, your personal points are too low to enter into the top ten.』
It’s talking about the information, but ignoring it, in the middle the operation window continued.
【Confirmation: The Liberator title will be destroyed! And, you will forever lose the chance to earn valuable rewards! Are you truly abandoning the Repose of Souls PvP battle participation? YES/NO】
After carefully checking the words, I press YES
『And, as for the reward … EE? W,wait a minute!
For a refusal to participate in the PvP battle to already come, please check it! 』
The voice giving the information became flustered. Is it really something to be that panicked about?
『E,excuse me. I was just mentioning the reward earlier.
There are 3 magic weapons of a weapon of the player’s choosing with the desired element.
There are 3 magics where you can only use it one time for each day, but you can resurrect a person that has parted from you in death.
Two mantles that produce illusions that make avoiding attacks easier.
And, there are two armguards that increase the power of physical and magical attacks by equipping them to your arms; this makes for a total of 10 equipment as rewards. This takes the form of the higher-ranked victors choosing first. 』
Hou, these are quite the powerful items. Ma, that dungeon was just about that tough, naa. The one that most draws my attention is the resurrection magic.
『And, it’s a PvP battle, but let me bring up the point evaluations once again.
Frankly, even if you run around and survive until the end but your evaluation is the worse, I imagine that you would not make the top ranks.』
Well yeah, there’s no way anyone would accept someone who just hid all secretly the entire time to survive and just took the best spot in the end as the champion. When I thought of that, a window opened for the second time.
【The rewards have been announced. Even with this, do you truly refuse to participate in the Repose of Souls PvP battle? YES/NO】
A last confirmation; they’re rather careful, ne. But, I don’t want to make an appearance so I press YES. I’m apologetic to the event coordinator, but I want to avoid standing out anymore than this…
【This is extremely unfortunate. Please tell us the reason, if you please.】
There’s space for writing words, so I wrote『I don’t want to stand out』and sent it.
【We have received your comments; thank you very much. 】
Is the window that opened; after closing that window, there were no more reactions. It’s not like I didn’t feel the appeal of the rewards, I just don’t want to show off my fighting in front of other people anymore.
I’ve already had my fill of being scouted by guilds…
『…What a pity. It has been brought to my attention that the solo Liberator has completely refused. That being the case, please understand that the PvP battle will be changed to 20. Furthermore, the solo-er’s reason for refusing to participate is to avoid standing out. 』
Oooi!? Even though it would have been all good without that announcement!?
Maa, whatever; other than the devs, there shouldn’t be anyone else that could possibly realize it was me; I’ve checked that the Liberator title has also disappeared, so later, no matter how many come, I can fool them all.
『The other 20 have show their intentions to participate, and so, let us meet again on the next Saturday. 』
With that the information ended.
Now then, lets head out to the Fairy Country immediately…
