Mile Chapter 82: Fight with Wyvern · · Ready!

ED: Lowe (might be the last time until wednesday as i was given task from school and i have camping trip with school at monday until wednesday. i have to work hard to finish everything fast so i can get back at editing ASAP!)

Forest Bar
Kingdom – Forest Village – Bar

Certain demons, such as fire breathing dragon and forest wolves with jumping power that exceed the common sense in the earth’s fantasy, certainly can use magic. Mile obediently accepted them ascreatures of fantasy, so they have such abilitiesand didn’t have any particular doubts.

With Wyvern (or sometimes called as Wing Dragon) still has『a body that can fly』so Mile can accept it

But it is strange that the ancient dragon can fly with its small wings compare to its huge body shape.

The fact is that monsters can’t use complicated languages ​​such as human beings,

so they shouldn’t be able to speak a word (or command the nano-machine). What’s why Mile thought that monster in this world can’t use magic.

But right now, Other people confirm that monster can use magic.

Mile thinks about it again, that God (self-proclaimed) certainly said, “Nano machine reacts to the Vicious Mind wave output of the living things and causes various phenomena.”

Not “human” but “living things”.

And when she talked about nanomachines for the first time, it told her that “ordinary creatures, including humans, are set with authority level 1, ancient dragon is level 2, sometimes level 3. Only authority level 3 and above can talk to nano-machine”.

(End of Mile Recap)

『Red Oath』stopped talking about that and started to hear stories about Wyvern from the villagers again.

And when Mile listened to the stories of villagers, it was roughly as follows.

Wyvern came to appear about twice a month or once every twelve days, and each time they caught a cow, a horse or a sheep.

Everyone was scared and didn’t do anything at first,

they were a little relieved from the fact that the Wyvern didn’t harm humans.

But when they tried to defend the livestock, the Wyvern becomes angry and attacks precisely the one who just attacks it.

After that, the villagers understand that the Wyvern had no intention to attack the villagers. Even when the Wyvern pursues the villagers, it doesn’t seem to inflict fatal attacks, it seems like it’s playing with a prey more than an enemy.

And when the villagers informed the guild branch of the capital and the lord.

The lord wasn’t passionate when he first heard about Wyvern’s appearance regularly.

Yes, if we can encounter a Wyvern with certainty, he couldn’t just leave it to the guild and hunters like usual but needs to move the soldiers himself.

It is the duty of the lord to prevent the damage on his territory to appeal as a good lord to the country.

On the other hand, except for emergency situations, guild will not issue requests themselves.

In this case, as long as there is no request from the lord, the guild will not move by itself.

It is not a philanthropic project, there’s no hunter willing to receive a request without a person who pays the fee. And in this case, it was the problem of the land and the lord.

Beside emergency, the guild only moves after receiving a request. That was the rule.

Imaging, if the guild can freely command all the hunters in the territory as it want, it will be a strength to surpass the army, so they must obey the rule to remain neutral and work for all nations.

And this time, the lord issued 1 magician, 1 bowman, 1 throwing spearman to take the Wyvern down to the ground. He also prepared 1 spearman to stab the Wyvern after falling and 18 soldiers team to protect the rearguard.

It was a sufficient military force.

The lord didn’t attach hunters with experiences fighting a Wyvern as an adviser, but no one is complaining, because that army is more than enough to fight against one Wyvern.

And the next day, Wyvern attacked.

The villagers had been instructed to hide in the house because it was dangerous.

After a few hours battle, the soldiers became tattered and desperately trying to heal themselves with healing magic.

And the casualties are: 3 dead, 6 seriously injured, 5 lightly injured, missing 1 cow.

Half of the seriously injured people had difficulties returning to the duty as soldiers.

The commander was shocked with the unexpected huge damage, but he believe that the task was completed as they have driven away the Wyvern. After he told the villagers, he and the survivors were leaving with their injury.

The villagers are relieved that the Wyvern would no longer come. Until 12 days later…

… 12 days after the battle with the troops, the Wyvern reappeared.

In other words, the Wyvern didn’t even see the soldiers as a threat.

It kicked the weak small fry that dare to challenge it. And grabbed the prey along with the glory of victory and brought it home.

There are no reason to avoid that hunting ground.

The villager who lost the high quality young cow again became panicked because they had not prepared anything.

Again, they informed the lord and the hunter guild in a hurry.

But the reaction of the manor house wasn’t good.

After that, the guild put out the request and the hunters begin to come.

For villagers, anyone who can knock out the Wyvern will do.

They appreciated that the lord issued the request fee.

However.

First hunter group, second hunter group, third hunter group.

Hunters who receive the quest disappear continuously.

Look like the hunters fail the request, and rumors have been spread. A lot of parties have been seriously damaged to the point that they stopped being hunters or broke up the party.

After that, there are no longer other hunters receiving the request.

And all of sudden the『Red Oath』appeared before the villagers. It’s been quite some time that they see the appearance of Hunters again.

Forest Village
Kingdom – Forest Village

“… As we expected, there’s no other strange things that we question before. Except for one thing …” (Rena)

“That’s right, everyone preferred to do things their way, it isn’t strange with how the lord behave.” (Pauline)

“That’s right, only …” (Maevis)

“This Wyvern is too strong and too smart!” (Rena + Pauline + Maevis + Mile)

Yes, that’s the only thing that was strange.

“Well, it’s natural that the details weren’t written on the request that came to the Kingdom” (Rena)

As Rena says, they will not write extra things in the request form. In particular, that will be disadvantageous to the client.

Lying is strictly prohibited, but they can manage to conceal important matters deliberately.

In that case, the reward money is forfeited as a malicious act, and the client must pay the penalty fee for the guild with the extra money to suit the quest difficulty

And the hunters who fail this request don’t have to pay penalty fee nor will have their points decrease. (T.N: in that case, not normal. The Hunter get trick so they don’t need to pay penalty fee nor have their point decrease. The guild must apology to the hunters instead)

Also, if the hunter was killed, it would become the subject to punishment by officials of the country.

It is a so-called “attempted murder due to unexpected incident”. (T.N: In case you don’t understand, It’s MPK = monter player killer) [ED but wasn’t that luring monsters to kill other players?] (T.N: This is not a game, the lord use monster to kill hunter by tricking them)

However, in this case, there is no change in the fact that “there’s only 1 Wyvern attacking the village”.

Even if it had defeated the soldiers and some Hunter’s party. They are just “those who failed to kill Wyvern”. There’s not a case like this before.

Wyvern might have been strong, and soldiers and hunters might have been weak.

Because it’s something that no one knows about it, there was no need to oblige to write such a thing on the request form.

Besides, the hunters will understand when they examined it by themselves.

The lord don’t bother to write extra things of unknown truth and false in the application form. He don’t write the wrong information after all.

Only when the lord write that Wyvern’s behavior is normal. That will become crime. 

“So, what are we going to do … ” (Rena)

“Normally, we have to fight and defeat it from the front, right?” (Pauline)

“Well, I don’t have anything else to add …” (Maevis)

Whether the Wyvern is an intelligent individual or stronger than average.

It doesn’t change what the『Red Oath』has to do, “Wyvern subjugation quest”.

Because they aren’t spy of the royal palace or an investigator of a civil service official.

Without special authority, they can’t do such a thing.

There was only one request they received, “Wyvern Subjugation” and that was it.

After that, the girls tried to gather more information from the villagers, but there was no one who risk going around the place where soldiers and hunters fought against Wyvern. So they didn’t know how the battle actually was like.

Only if there was someone who know the details about the Wyvern, but they would have reported it if they want the Hunter Guild to deal with it.

The fact that the Guild Master didn’t mention anything, it was probably because he didn’t have anything special to tell the girls.

There may have been a report about “That Wyvern was strong”, but the party who failed and ran away from the request. The report “The enemy was strong” can only be accepted as an excuse.

If there were three Wyverns or that wyvern can breath fire from the mouth, even shoot laser from it the eyes or something like that. The hunters would definitely report it. [ED: wait superman or superwyvern?]

After『Red Oath』finished gathering information, they had dinner in the shop and return to the inn.

Forest_Home
Kingdom – Forest Village – Inn

At the time of meal, the villagers were surprised to see the two smallest girl eat relatively big meal, while the two tallest and biggest girls barely eat anything.

This is a safe place so the girls don’t have to worry even if their movement becomes dull so they eat until they’re full.

Pauline and Maevis seemed a bit embarrassed to eat while being seen by the villagers so they barely eat anything. Rena and Mile didn’t seem to care.

Rena had something in mind so she eats a lot whenever she can, and Mile was just hungry, so she didn’t think about anything else.

Apparently the body of Mile in this world seemed not to have much better fuel economy than her previous life … (T.N: No matter how she eat, a certain place won’t grow)
[ED: really inefficient eh~ just keep praying “average” MC so you will have the certain parts grow!]

    • I for one like it, makes it feel like one of those “choose your own adventure” books or and old school RPG maker games, then again I read this on my PC not a phone so the experience could just be different.

      • I see it as a huge improvement on the ‘RPG’ format that TL used a few chapters back. It’s just some artwork that one can either appreciate, or scroll past quickly if one doesn’t like it. Some of the readers are enjoying it, so it’s fine.

        Note that shousetsu (syosetu.com) doesn’t have any artwork. The pics you see sometimes are from the later LN releases. So this is a nice substitute for artwork the TL may not have yet anyway.

    • I more-or-less like it. The woes of mobile users shouldn’t stop people from enjoying a better product if they can. And can’t you change your browser settings to not load any pictures?

      I do have a couple of issues with the specific pictures though. Most of them are nice, but I feel like all of the interior locations should have interior images. A view of a sign outside a door is somewhat descriptive, but doesn’t really convey the idea that they are inside the building to me. And large, obvious characters on the image, especially if they are directing attention to the viewpoint, seem like distractions, as they look important, where as they do not actually exist and are just background dressing of figures that might exist as it is a populated location. Also, this feels to me like a pretty dirty world and certain R.P.G.-style outfits and hairstyles really don’t feel like they fit to me. I would be more comfortable with tunics and loose dresses than the random Slave-Leia outfit with bright purple hair…
      Really, it is the same with background music. You want to avoid distracting lyrics and there is a big difference between the suspensefully building “the battle is imminent” music and the raucous “we are fighting now” music, even though they are both associated with combat.

      But overall it seems like a decent way to delineate the different scenes. I had issues with the character images. I recognised names faster than images so it slowed down the experience for me and kept switching me from image to text interpretation, which was jarring. Not that it was necessarily bad, but it didn’t suit my personal tastes.

  4. Greetings and thanks for the chapter. This chapter uses some words that I previously corrected because it felt wrong when I read it in the previous one. I don’t know if you don’t want it corrected to the words I used or if you just forgot so if you could tell me it’d be nice. Btw the words I’m referering to are “Wyvern Suppression” and “Shop”
    Other than that the corrections I found will be listed below like always

    But when they trying to defend livestock, the Wyvern becomes angry and attacks back to exactly the one who just attacks it -> But when they tried to defend livestock, the Wyvern becomes angry and attacks precisely the one who just attacks it

    Even when Wyvern pursuing the villagers, but it doesn’t seem to make a fatal attack, it seems like playing with prey more than an enemies -> Even when Wyvern pursues the villagers, it doesn’t seem to make fatal attacks, it seems like it’s playing with a prey more than an enemies

    I assume that this part means that they were so wounded that they could no longer be soldiers, not that they were too scared to return
    Half of seriously injured people seemed difficult to return duty as soldiers -> Half of the seriously injured people had difficulties returning to the duty as soldiers

    The villager who were lost the high quality young cow again become panicked because they had not prepared anything -> The villager who lost the high quality young cow again became panicked because they had not prepared anything

    This very long part is very tough to get through so I will try to make it easier to read. Commas aren’t really my specialty so if anyone who reads my corrections disagree with it feel free to argue why
    In that case, the reward money is forfeited as a malicious act, and the client must pay the penalty fee for the guild with the extra money to suit the quest difficult and the hunters who fail this request have to pay penalty fee but if they don’t want to pay the guild will decrease their points
    ->

    It is a so-called “attempted murder due to unexpected incident (T.N: In case you don’t understand, It’s MPK = monter player killer) [ED but wasn’t that luring monsters to kill other players?] [Dane I think it’s meant that if you were expecting to fight a frog but you found a dragon in the quest’s location, obviously you were misinformed and suffer consequences because of it]

    I commented this on the previous time we encountered this but is there a reason it’s not just reffered to as “Wyvern Subjugation” similar to all other mentions?
    There was only one request they received, “Wyvern suppression” and that was it

    I know they like their food but I doubt they have several dinners after each other 😛
    they have dinners in the shop and return to the inn -> they have dinner in the shop and return to the inn

    don’t have to worry even if the movement becomes dull when they eat until full -> don’t have to worry even if their movement becomes dull so they eat until they’re full

  9. How long will miles life be? Elfs and dragons live for a real long time. And even if she doesn’t grow that place she shouldn’t have any problems to find someone to love. As how the author makes it sound she’s super cute. So I think she don’t need to worry.

  10. I’m still convinced that her growth rate is really low, and she’s just going to keep getting bigger and bigger over the next few decades. At least three to five meters tall at adult height by maybe age 30 or 40. After all, she’s just and average girl with average growth and maximum size statistics. 😉
