Are you feeling trolled ? Or are you feeling happy ?

Anyway we are back to Mile’s POV.

And, did you check the average illustrations yet ?


Mile Chapter 80: New request

ED: Lowe

Dragon-Quest-Heroes_2015_01-30-15_012
Kingdom’s Capital City – Hunter Guild

“Well, let’s see if there’s a request that sounds interesting …” (Rena)

If other hunters who tried their hardest to survive the day, heard what『Red Oath』said. They would be angry for sure.

Last time, It was related to Pauline’s family and right now, they still didn’t need money yet. So they decided to do something, an interesting quest, an unusual work instead of a simple work.

However, such an arrogant dialogue can be said when there’re some poor parties nearby, so poor that can’t afford the money to live.

It reminds Mile about something she had heard in her previous life, it is a saying  『Even Gandhi would chase you away and hit you』『ガンジーでも助走つけて殴るレベル』(TN: I have no idea what this mean, so I just keep what MTL-ed give me)

Fortunately, the words were passed through without being heard and Rena kept watching the board as she was.

“Ah, this …” (Mile)

Three other girls coming to see what Mile is pointing at.

Yes, certainly, when we found the request for a rock lizard, it was also like this …

And in the request form pointed by Mile, it was written as follows.

『Wyvern subjugation

Reward: 30 gold coins』

“We will take it” (Rena + Pauline + Maevis)

It was the first time they see Wyvern subjugation request.

This area is a bit far from the habitat of Wyvern, and if you miss this opportunity, next time you can’t see a Wyvern subjugation request anymore.

They could not miss this.

“Won’t you stop being so careless…” (Guild receptionist)

In the words of that receptionist, four girls remembered this feeling again.

Well, she certainly was also like this when we tried to receive a request for rock lizard.

“No, we already know our skills!” (Rena)

“No, even if you say so …” (Guild receptionist)

In spite of Rena’s high tension attitude, the receptionist attempted to persuade the girls again.

“First of all, in order to hijack a Wyvern, you need to drag Wyvern down to the ground. In order to do that, the party must have enough power enough to drop Wyvern.  It is fast, high accuracy are needed to hit, far distance towards upper sky it is necessary to have a remote attack means that reaches up to it. Performing parties will not be able to satisfy this condition and will abandon the orders.” (Guild receptionist) [EDN: the orders is not a command but the request]

“We have three people who are magicians that can use powerful attack magic, there is no problem!” (Rena)

Through Rena’s objections, the receptionist continued talking.

“And even if you can do some damage, the Wyvern will run away.” (Guild receptionist)

“Hah…?” (Rena + Mile + Maevis + Pauline)

“Because it doesn’t fight until it is dead, when a Wyvern becomes inferior or feels danger, it will escape. And it will not come out of the nest for a long time. Even if it came out again after a long time rest, It will not come again to the place it gets attacked. Wyvern’s hunting range is wide. Besides, It remembers the person who hurt it, and in other places, it never approaches the hunters who it fought once … in addition” (Guild receptionist)

“in addition?” (Rena + Mile + Maevis + Pauline)

“In the first place, how are you going to find a Wyvern that has hunting ground which spans tens of kilometers?” (Guild receptionist)

“Hah…?” (Rena + Mile + Maevis + Pauline)

Four people of 『Red Oath』are suprised and have their mouth open.

“It will not come to attack the same village everyday. After hunting, it will rest for a long time. You will need to search for it for days. When you finally met and fought it in a fierce fight, there’s a high chance you will be killed or seriously injured and even if you are safe to give it considerable damage, it will flee quickly afterwards, it will never come back near you girls again. You are wasting a long day to do damage, must be on guard all the time, the payment aren’t worth it because you are dealing with long days of traveling, treatment expenses for survivors … Did you wonder why the request remains despite the high reward. If you don’t, you won’t live long”  (Guild receptionist)

“…” (Rena + Mile + Maevis + Pauline)

To the silent girls, the explanation of the receptionist continued further.

“Nobody in the guild branches of the local and neighboring towns accept this quest. This request has been brought to the royal branch because the lord and the royal palace are not going to help out, so many of the colleagues’ blood flows for doing this. The requests that have a big negativity like this will be called … 『Red Request』 Only idiots, novices or brave people do such a thing.” (Guild receptionist)

After the explanation of the receptionist,『Red Oath』’s members looked at each other.

Everyone nodded, and Rena told the receptionist.

“Because we have no trouble so far, we will receive this 『Red Request』!” (Rena)

“What … didn’t you listen to my explanation until now, what in the world are you thinking …?”  (Guild receptionist)

“Oh, isn’t your job to get the request done?” (Rena)

“Ku~…” (Guild receptionist)

The receptionist raised her voice unintentionally to Rena’s words, but swallowed her words remembering her own position.

“Why do you ask for such a request?” (Guild receptionist)

“Oh, why do you ask again? You said it yourself a little while ago.” (Rena)

“Huh?” (Guild receptionist)

Rena tells the receptionist who didn’t understand the meaning of her words.

“That’s because we are idiots, novices, … and brave people!” (Rena)

Mile cried out loud from the side of the receptionist.

“Hey, Rena! Why did you look at me when you said『Idiot』?” (Mile)

After that, the『Red Oath』has received the quest to subdue a Wyvern.

Even though the receptionists could give advice to the hunters, they did not have the authority to refuse regular orders that fulfilled the conditions on their own discretion.

If there is any reason left to refuse, that will be they must convince her boss.

For that reason, receptionist who was favorable to 『Red Oath』 tried her last resort.

“Well then, shall we go to the guild master’s room first?”  (Guild receptionist)

And the guild master just holds his head again.

Kingdom – Hermolt Town

On the 5th day travel from the kingdom, the 『Red Oath』 party finally arrived in the town Hermolt

Where the submitted request for Wyvern subjugation came from, for the time being, they went to the guild branch.

Forest Guild.jpg
Kingdom – Hermolt Town – Hunter guild

And when they told that they received the Wyvern subjugation request at the reception, they were told to keep waiting for a while.

After that they were guided to the guild master room on the second floor.

“… You are a kingdom capital’s hunter that received a request for Wyvern subjugation request.. ?” (Hermolt Guild master)

The Guild Master said so and welcomed the four people, he had a slightly angry and a bit disappointed looks.

『Red Oath』was guided by the receptionist and entered the room.

“Have you understood everything and accepted this Wyvern request? … Did you receive an explanation from the guard official of the Kingdom?”  (Hermolt Guild master)

Before the girls got into the room, the elderly guild master asked the girls that before a greeting.

But it wasn’t a tone of looking down on us, but a tone of worrying about the young hunter girls.

“…When you girls, hunters from the kingdom’s capital, die in vain my evaluation will go down. It was as if I let four young girls who have good appearance die, they will hit the backdrop here and there, Please reconsider it!”  (Hermolt Guild master)

“…”   (Rena + Mile + Maevis + Pauline)

Apparently, he only worried about his reputation.

“We are the 『Red Oath』, C rank Hunter party who received a request for Wyvern Subjugation”

Rena replies instead, as Maevis just keeps silent with the words of Guild Master.

It is Rena with a relatively low boiling point, but she is conscious about how they look.

She realize that the guild master in the first meeting sees them lightly in appearance.

So, she wasn’t really “angry” about that.

Yes, she just want to open the eyes of the Guild master who stand before them.

That’s it. Because they have Mile now.

“What, 『Red Oath』?” (Hermolt Guild master)

Guild Master looked a bit surprised at Rena’s words, because they only know that a hunter party received the quest

“You girls are that …” (Hermolt Guild master)

Apparently, it seemed that rumors about us were heard.

Like, the simulated fight in the graduation test, the bandit subjugation, and the evil merchant …, no, the last one is not a 『Red Oath』 but a mysterious party 『Red Blood is Justice』!

Although that party is active, it doesn’t matter, … No-one knows where that party is.

Besides, in the end, rumors will flow from that town to the kingdom’s capital,

and furthermore from the kingdom’s capital to the various places,

“I do not know who you think we are, but we are the『Red Oath』” (Maevis)

This time, Maevis replied.

The party leader is Maevis.

Sometimes Mile forget about it because Rena always lead us …

“… For a moment, I have heard of your rumors, both magician’s ability and swordsmen’s arms … If it’s you girls, you might be able to give a blow to Wyvern or to stifle a fallen Wyvern. However, if you can’t give enough damage for the Wyvern to fall, it will be useless, please think about it again, you can always fail the quest and take a small penalty …” (Hermolt Guild master)

“Even if you say so, we are already receiving orders!” (Mile)

To the words of Mile, it is also so, the Guild Master smiled bitterly.

After that, people of 『Red Oath』 received a detailed explanation contents of the request from the guild master who acknowledged that the girls aren’t an average newbie hunter party.

The outline was explained at the Guild Branch of the Kingdom,

but the requested document was a simplified explanation of only the outline,

there was new information after the creation of the request form,

and various questions were asked to the details.

Such a job is normally the role of a receptionist,

but this case is an important request,

and there’s also the request from the kingdom’s capital guild branch.

In other words, the 『Red Oath』were the hunters dispatched from kingdom’s capital guild branch.

they requested for assistance from the Hermolt guild branch, so it was a direct response to the guild master.

Nevertheless, it is normal that guild master will take over for details after the guild master responds to normal,

apparently the guild master seems to be interested in 『Red Oath』 unusually

The Guild Master explains to the end about the situation.

And the contents are a bit smelly but the Guild Master talks honestly without hiding anything,

even so the expression of everyone of the 『Red Oath』 gradually became steep …

Forest_Home.png
Kingdom – Hermolt Town – inn

“… I will put together a story” (Rena)

After withdrawing from the guild, the girls took a quadruple room at the inn, and 『Red Oath』girls is having a meeting in the room.

As usual, the moderator is Rena.

“First of all, the client of this time is the lord, but the lord only pays the fee upon completion, so there is no need to worry about the content of the request because this request go through the guild. Beside, it seems like there’s no need to see the client, either” (Rena)

We heard from the guild master about that.

The lord himself thinks of hunters as nothing more than a mercenary.

The aristocrat often won’t bother to meet the hunter,

The lord in the bandit group case, Count of Amuros is a bit un-usual.

Even the people of the『Red Oath』feel that person is comfortable.

The reason why they aren’t stiff when they meet a nobleman is because they are accustomed to Maevis.

Even if Mile doesn’t often show it, she has the experience of talking and eating meals with a Noble. It did not seem so from others, but she wasn’t nervous.

Although Maevis was a noble, she is also a classmate at the time of school, so the girls were never nervous when talking with her.

“The damage is about 30% of this territory and part of the neighboring territory, the vicinity is mostly part of the border area. Since the damage in this territory is vast, They mostly neglected this territory, and let citizen manage somehow, well it is a right decision as a lord, it is a bad idea to waste soldiers and budgets in the territory.” (Rena)

Three people nodding with gulp.

Three people other than Rena, of course, have listened to the explanation of Guild Master, but it is important to confirm with words again at such a meeting.

You can reduce mistakes, synchronize the flow of everyone’s thinking, and facilitate discussion.

“…and the problem is this, is it not?” (Rena)

Rena spread out the map on the table as she said that, it’s a copy of the material, received from the guild master.

The village and the sighting place that was attacked by Wyvern were marked along with the date and time on a simple map of this territory and neighboring territory.

It was generally concentrated within a certain circle.

That’s good. It is quite normal. However …

“It is weird, is not it…” (Pauline)

“Yeah, it’s a bit unnatural.” (Maevis)

“It’s a bit different from the general theory of Wyvern’s ecology, as heard in Kingdom …” (Mile)

As Pauline, Maevis and Mile said, the Wyvern appearance had a very strange aspect.

Firstly, the range of appearance is much narrower than that of average Wyvern.

In this area where Wyvern rarely appears, the territorial dispute does not matter.

It is common for it to have hunting ground spread as far as possible.

And, the appearance range is drawing a circle beautifully.

No, drawing the circle itself is normal.

However, in this article, the circle was too drawn too beautiful.

Normally, it is a bit more disagreeable, just “a distribution close to a circle”.

And, next was the date and time of its appearance.

Correct.

Wyvern that appears too precisely and regularly in key villages and key points of the highway.

As if as the Wyvern know the calendar used by humans, Wyvern will appear and decide the location by day of the week.

Of course, it is suspicious. It is outright suspicious.

However, it was not only about Wyvern that the members of the 『Red Oath』 felt suspiciously.

“Of course, this hurdle will be noticed by other lord, soldiers and other hunters. So they can plan ahead of time the place and day the Wyvern will attack. Well, that’s probably something like that. Wyvern, Even if it was a powerful individual … But if the encounter is relatively easy to predict…” (Rena)

“The troops will come out, right?” (Pauline)

Pauline muttered, accepting Rena’s words.

Yes, a major reason why the army doesn’t appear because Wyvern’s encounter chance is really low.

It takes a lot of money to move a large number of soldiers for many of days.

And, as a result, if they can’t find it, only the budget is consumed and the result is zero.

If the encounter rate was extremely low, it wasn’t the opponent you wanted to hand out to the lord.

However, if it can be encountered with considerable high probability, the story is different.

Promotion of damage of the territory, practical warfare of soldiers, appeal of soldiers to other territories, appeal as a “good lord for the people”, appeal to the royal palace and upholding the loyalty of the people.

Some damage to soldiers and consumption of budget has the merit will be acceptable.

Even if it escapes when the soldiers give a good amount of damage, it will not appear in that village anymore, and it will be a good result as if the Wyvern is driven away.

But even though there is such regular appearance material, why the lord army has not appeared …

“The troops do not come out, do they have any reason …?” (Maevis)

Miles continues on the words of Maevis

“… Or the troops was already defeated and the lord is hiding that news …?” (Mile)

Silence spread among the girls


Author’s Note:

The homecoming and the accompanying processing are also one settlement.
Update is resuming.
… Up to now it was an update every day, can I change it to every 2-3 days?
No, the mountain of unreaded novels and unreviewed recording become full of capacity, and I want to read the work of other people not only writing  …. (^ ^ I want to go drinking for a while.
I had used too much time in writing. (^ ^ ゞ


Translator’s Note:

Ah… that’s why the update become less and less when I try to read with google translate before.

To think the Author can release a chapter everyday for 80 days.

  4. A wyvern huh? (Glances at picture on right of screen) Yeahhhhhhh, I don’t know who in the hunter guild is in charge of verifying information about quests but I think he’s about to lose his job. On the bright side we might get to see Mile in serious mode for once right? At the very least we’ll see if the Wonder Three were right about her being okay if a dragon stepped on her.

      • Seriously? It really is a wyvern and the dragon comes later? Wow, the author sure had me fooled. I mean, first they spend a good chunk of the chapter talking about how un-wyvern like this wyvern appears to be then to make this quest even more suspicious they strongly hint that the lord who made the request is hiding something about this “wyvern”. So if the wyvern they’re hunting is in fact a just a wyvern, what was all that heavy foreshadowing for? Just trolling the readers?

  8. Greetings and thanks for the chapters. I felt like writing more comments on why I’m correcting some of the more “flow” related corrections or for the corrections that seem correct but have an underlying problem. I would appreciate if you could tell me what you prefer. Other than that the corrections are below as always

    This is a sentence I’m not completely sure of because it is really clunky so I will change it to a way I think make sense. Correct me if you disagree
    However, such an arrogant dialogue can be said when there’re other party that can’t afford the money -> However, such an arrogant dialogue can’t be said when there’re other parties that can’t afford the luxury

    I think the receptionist is saying the payment isn’t worth it here?
    the payment are worth it because you are dealing with long day traveling, treatment expenses for survivors -> the payment aren’t worth it because you are dealing with long days of traveling, treatment expenses for survivors

    Honestly this sentence is not necessarily grammatically incorrect but I would probably change it a bit for a better flow
    Did you wonder why the request remains even though the reward is good. Otherwise, you can’t live long -> Did you wonder why the request remains despite the high reward. If you don’t, you won’t live long

    I think you can do the continued “or” here but I feel it looks a bit ugly
    Only idiots or novices or brave people get such a thing. -> Only idiots, novices or brave people do such a thing.

    Honestly I feel that “Four people of” is unnecessary here as the reader would already know its members
    four people of 『Red Oath』 looked at each other ->『Red Oath』 looked at each other

    what are you thinking …? -> what in the world are you thinking …?

    In all previous mentioning of the quest it’s been called subjugation, so I don’t quite understand why it’s suppression here. They are synonyms of each other so both can work but I changed it to match previous mentions
    You are a kingdom capital’s hunter that received a request for Wyvern suppression request -> You are a kingdom capital’s hunter that received a request for Wyvern subjugation request

    I just feel like it sounds better this way
    he had a slightly angry and looks like a bit disappointed -> he had a slightly angry and a bit disappointed looks

    I think tone is more fitting instead of word here
    But it wasn’t a word of looking down on us, but a word of worrying about the young hunter girls -> But it wasn’t a tone of looking down on us, but a tone of worrying about the young hunter girls

    So this is one of the few times I correct comma errors because it’s an injected sentence that ends at the wrong point. The point here is that the sentence is “when you girls die in vain ___”
    When you girls, hunters from the kingdom’s capital die in vain, my evaluation will go down -> When you girls, hunters from the kingdom’s capital, die in vain my evaluation will go down

    I do not know who do you think we are, but we are the『Red Oath』-> I do not know who you think we are, but we are the『Red Oath』

    I really want to make one of two corrections here but I don’t really know, either I’d say “Kingdom’s capital’s guild branch” or I would say “capital’s guild branch”
    the 『Red Oath』was the hunters dispatched from kingdom’s capital guild branch -> the 『Red Oath』were the hunters dispatched from kingdom’s capital guild branch

    The lord himself think of hunters as nothing more than a mercenary -> The lord himself thinks of hunters as nothing more than a mercenary

    Even for the people of the『Red Oath』feel that person is comfortable -> Even the people of the『Red Oath』feel that person is comfortable

    I think there’s a slight mistake in the comma here
    They mostly neglected this territory, and let citizen manage somehow Well, it is a right decision as a lord -> They mostly neglected this territory, and let citizen manage somehow, well it is a right decision as a lord

    and the problem is this, is not it -> and the problem is this, is it not

  11. The wyvern attack locations and timing are pretty suspicious. It’s seems related to why police will criminally investigate (in secret) the witnesses or civilian first-responders to a situation. They are familiar with cases where the perpetrator returns to either solve or reduce the severity of the problem in order to gain fame or reward.
