Mile Chapter 105: Go to excavation site

 

The girls went through 「the village in front of the forest」 and entered the forest.

They trusted Doctor Kulereia’s word that she was good at running through the forest and ran with full speed.

Five people running through the forest at much faster speed than when they were escaping.

Because it was already evening and the inside of the forest was starting to get dark. Mile put wood pieces painted with 「Magical Luminescent Substance」on everyone’s back.

Formation is a single column.

It is a single vertical, or「jet stream attack」

But It’s forbidden to use other people ‘s head as a stepping stone.

The order are Mile, Rena, Doctor Kulereia, Pauline and Maevis.

With the doctor who is a VIP, it’s natural that she is next to the best fighting power among the 4 girls of the 「Red Oath」.

Healer Pauline and magician Rena are place in the middle because they are weak against surprise attack.

And, in preparation for surprise attack from behind, Maevis is going last.

「Right now, at best, that beastkin party  messenger may have already arrived at the camp site. And the camp site may also arrange another party to search for that 2nd party…」(Mile)

Mile thinks if a messenger moves at full speed with beastkin’s physical ability and the experience in the forest. It will take one day to reach the excavation site.

And the time they start moving depend on their magician’s magic power recovery speed, healing magic skill, and whether the leader preferred inform the clan or priority of the team’s safety.

「To avoid encounter with that broken party or a rescue team. We will avoid that place and then take a straight route to the excavation site.

By the way, there’s another place I absolutely want to avoid …」(Mile)

Although other girls don’t know exactly what 『Another place』that Mile’s talking about, but because Mile says that,「Red Oath」acknowledge it without thinking deeply.

「…U~!」(Kulereia)

After entering the forest and traveling for several hours to the excavation site, Doctor Kulereia suddenly closes her nose and mouth.

「What’s wrong …, ah that’s right, … elves have better nose than humans …

Everyone, we are making detour! This is 『Another place that we absolutely must avoid』!」(Mile)

「I never think that it would be such a thing when we took a considerably early break near the feces.

And the beastkins take must longer than expected to catch up with us…」(Rena)

Pauline and Meevis nods to Rena.

Mile isn’t considering to remove that thing, to the extent that she is rather moving another way instead.

Perhaps Mile thinks that it may become a safe area that no monsters or beasts dare to enter. But in the first place nobody will try to escape into that place.

The beastkins seemed to make detour to the opposite side.

There’re evidence that the re-build team had detoured way farther than Mile. Well, they are more sensitive to smell than humans. Our limit range to that place is shorter than the beastkins, so we wouldn’t be noticed moving near that place.

And, without encountering the beastkins, 「Red oath」and Doctor Kulereia after a day and a half traveling from Hermolt Town. They finally reach the excavation site without fail.

「We have been moving with full speed for a day and a half after leaving Hermolt Town.

Because we already reach the site, let’s take a good rest here tonight」(Mile)

No one opposed Mile’s proposal, and everyone nodded.

The area is already dim.

Mile picked the appropriate grassland and took out the tent from the item box.

It isn’t folded but an assembled one…

Recently, Mile noticed it.

In other words, it doesn’t matter whether she put a folded one or an assembled one in the item box. So she doesn’t bother to assemble or disassemble it every time anymore.

「Huh…?」(Kulereia)

Doctor Kulereia agape looking at Mile.

The other three don’t care at all, they are casually fixing the four corners of the tent, digging drains around the tent.

In the forest, wind and rain may take down the tent so they need to prepare thoroughly for possible emergencies. That was the secret of longevity.

「Why, why are you not folding it!」(Kulereia)

「Well? It’s troublesome and it’s a waste of time to fold and assemble over and over」(Mile)

Doctor Kulereia is amazed at Mile’s reply.

[ In any case, the capacity limit of storage magic is determined by the correlation between weight and volume.

Regardless of how light it is if the volume is too large, the storage still hit its limit. The same with heavier weight and small volume.

Both the volume and the weight determined the storage limits.

That’s why, the stored items must be as light as possible and as small as possible, and it was common sense.

And even if it can be stored, the amount of magical power and the mental burden to keep the storage are different depending on the amount.

If you fold it, the volume will drastically decrease.

The tent is what takes the most space. By sparing a little effort of folding and assembling, we can save a lot of storage limit and magic power mental burden on the magician.

… Just how much magical power is this girl can afford! And her unconscious control power is also excellent!

Also when we’re escaping,「vegetables and fruits are just like what we bought in the market」, 「Orc meats are fresh like just hunted」were clearly abnormal.

Besides, a large amount of wooden weapons that she suddenly makes without any effort, shiny pieces of wood that can be seen in the dark.

And she has physical ability to lightly treat beastkins like nothing… ] (Kulereia’s inner thought)

The reason why Doctor Kulereia followed「Red Oath」is of course to see what the beastkins are doing and discovering as a scholar.

However, as a doctor individual, she wants to stick to this girl.

There’s a rule that we shouldn’t question Hunter’s past or ability.

The doctor is aware of that, what is pretty much common sense.

So she refrained from directly questioning Mile.

However, she is curious and concerned, she can’t help it!

「Uaaaa~aaa!!」(Kulereia)

「What’s wrong, Doctor?」(Mile)

Doctor Kulereia cried out suddenly, Mile surprised and asked …

「Nothing, nothing!」(Kulereia)

While staring at Mile, Doctor Kulereia pretended like nothing.

Mile stretched a string around the tent.

Then she connects a wooden pieces and two pieces of metal to it.

Yes, it was a「Naruko」a tripwire.

Until now, we were all sleeping in the open air because Mile used barriers and warning magic.

But then there’s a possibility that Red Oath can’t keep their guard up when they need to rest if Mile is absent.

Mile thought about the warning method that anyone could use even without her.

Also, this time Doctor Kulereia is accompanying them.

In front of the doctor, Mile can not use too much fancy magic.

Evening supper, it was a degree that light cooking instead of proper dish.

With unusually fresh ingredients from the item box.

Doctor Kulereia worried about whether it’s safe to cook with the fire while close to the beastkin’s camp.

Mile properly explained to give her a peace of mind.

「Ah, smoke and smelly particles are magically collected to a solid mass, so it’s okay.

Here, this is the fine particles of smoke and smell collected and compacted」(Mile)

「…………」(Kulereia)

Doctor Kulereia silently watched Mile pointing at a dark mass.

Mile parties

「Today’s『Japanese Fukashi talk』!」(Mile)

The girls rest early today.

「And the thief defeated the bad Earl.

Then he left the princess, the old man, the faithful dog, his colleagues and go alone…

After that, the police guy rushed to the scene said to the princess.

『He steals strange things. …… Your underwear! 』」(Mile)

(T.N: Sorry I can’t find any puns or relate in Mile’s story this time

Reader Guest-san tell me that underwear and heart sound samilar in some case so I guess it was that)

Bu fu ~u! (SFX)

Three girl of 「Red oath」had listened calmly and found it fun.

But Doctor Kulereia is spewing the soup she is drinking from the mouth and nose, and is struggling with pain in her nose.

  1. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    You sure it’s mass that the author wrote. I know it’s been a long time since I attended physics class, but I’m sure that folded or open, the tent’s mass remained the same. Unless you count the air inside, but that’s usually negligible.

    • Mass -> volume/size
      But mass can also be matter (object)
      Example:
      smoke and smelly particles are magically collected to a solid mass

      • Isn’t mass (in physics) constant for each object? It’s been decades but I remember that much. Even if you shrunk the Earth to the size of a marble it would remain the same mass.

        Like

      • Wrong, mass isn’t volume or size. thats misusing the meaning of mass. anywhere you look up mass, it always says the amount of matter of the object and is usually equivalent to its weight. therefore the line should of been “size (or volume) and weight” not “mass and weight” since mass and weight kinda describes the same thing.

      • Regardless of how light it is if the mass is too large, the storage still hit its limit. The same with “heavier weight and small mass.”

        Read the sentence lad, mass here is not weight but volume.

        Savvy?

      • Mass does not mean volume or size. Using mass as to mean like matter or object is correct usage of mass, but using the word mass in place of size or volume is completely incorrect. Anyone with a science background or any basic knowledge of physics will know this for a fact. Mass is a measure of how much matter an object has and is irrelevant to the size of the object. Technically speaking, folding up a tent will reduce the volume (size), but it will not change its mass since all the materials of the tent is still there but in a more compact form (basically increasing density but maintaining mass). please stop spreading ignorance.

      • Think of ‘Mass’ like a doctor does instead of a physicist. A doctor will refer to a mass of tissue, or foreign matter, or whatever. It is not being used there as a unit of measure like in physics but as a noun meaning ‘a collection or body’ of something.

        Like

      • And now that I’m past the general discussion on ‘what does mass mean and when does it mean something not in physics’ let’s discuss this in engineering terms (since that’s what I do for a living.)

        What some people are tripping over is the fact that Mile is trying to describe a system with TWO parametric limits. Kulereia is believes that if she doesn’t pay attention to the volume limit and only cares about the mass (not weight, that’s something else) limit, she will run out on volume capacity while carrying very little mass. Conversely, if she paid attention to mass and volume, she would run out on mass capacity long before she ran out of space (volume.)

        The parameter derived from these two base parameters is called “density”, and in a two base parameter system, there is usually an ideal value of the derived parameter at which the two base parameters taken together are optimized. If you don’t know engineering but have studied economics, this is similar math to finding where the supply curve and the demand curve cross.

    • You know, I’ve screwed up what I’ve typed previously in so many ways, it isn’t even worth trying to correct anymore. Long story short, the issue is Density, folks.

    • Honestly, I’d rather think there’s a set mana reduction for mass per volume taken up in the storage. So perhaps volume has a different mp usage modifier than for weight? Assuming of course you can somehow calculate weight in a place without gravity or external forces, tho in a standard storage where time does not freeze (unlike that AVERAGE storage), chemical reactions(decomposition) and entropy should still exist, alongside pressure if the condition of items stored is anything to go by…. Hmmm…. Well, I guess we still can’t really figure this out huh… To the next chap!
      P.S. Thanks for chap

  2. Suggestion:
    they are “weak again”->” ” weak against the surprise attack.
    (Delete double)

    the camp site may also arrange “the”->” ” another party to search for that 2nd party…」

    elves “were more nostril”-> “have better nose” than humans

    move near that place than “the limit of”->”get notice by” the beastkins

    when sleeping ” “->”or” when Mile is absent.

    Typo:

    and that kulereia’s inner thought, I lost where she started, had to scroll up a bit

    now then… I find it fine, more like I’d want kulereia, (oh god I keep typing kurelia), to join red oath even as a researcher or some sort of something beneficial to the girls.

    thanks for the meal~

  5. “If you fold it, the mass will drastically decrease.”

    I hate it when writers make up their own physics. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, don’t bullshit it, the readers aren’t all stupid.

    Like that one time in Reign of Hunters, when the author especially explained that a monster fell faster than the protagonist because it weighed more… the comments section was in uproar.

    • I’m sorry.
      I don’t know in English there are different with “Mass” and “Volume”, Okay?
      I thought Mass = the size of item. (from the word Massive)

      I plan to use bigger and smaller that correct meaning. But those words didn’t sound good.

      I’m really stupid with physics that I re-take test over and over.
      I don’t even understand physics in my language
      And now I must explain it in English that not my language.
      How I wish I can skip it but I can’t.
      It’s Author hardword for world builder.

      Are you new here.
      I have alway translated with Trial and Error.
      I make mistake a lot, when readers kindly point out to me, I always thank them and fix as soon as possible.

      If Guest don’t told me, I don’t even know I make a mistake with Mass and Volume there.

      I’m not making up anything, just mis-understanding from translate with 2 different language that not my forte.

      • No biggie. I’ve seen native English speakers making the same mistake of equating mass with volume. Almost always the source of the misunderstanding is the word “massive”.

      • Actually, it would depend on the topic being discussed.
        You can mass military forces. No, that does not mean make them carry more weight.
        You can call ‘mass’ the amount of matter an object has.
        You can get a mass of scar tissue.
        You can go to Mass. And no, they don’t talk about physics there.

        Mass is a term with multiple meanings depending on the subject. In this case, it probably means mass as a collection of objects, not physics, so it’s not totally wrong, it’s a pass, just an uncommon, close one.

    • It’s a slight translation error. I think the intent was that if you have to imagine a smaller object (e.g. A folded one) it takes up less of your perceived limit and is easier to picture e.g. Try to imagine carrying around dozens napkins all folded fan ill like origami compared to a box of them all neatly folded. If this is heavier it MUST be more difficult to take. The natives falsely correlate the difficulties with size when it’s really just psychology getting in the way.

    • Correction, not a collection of objects, it’s more of a ‘mass of scar tissue’ kind of mass. i.e one big lump.

  6. I read the comments and wonder if there should be crowd translated stories using methods that make it as easy as editing a word document. Maybe a combo of a few translator services, Google Docs, and a web interface. People reading it can pick the best translations giving points to the submitter or summit their own translation or interpretation. Algorithms can analyze the results to improve the translator engines, the site can then sell that data to fund the site.

  7. Thanks for the chapter!

    In Dr. Kulereia’s incredulous inner monologue, you should substitute volume for mass, i.e.

    In any case, the capacity limit of storage magic is determined by the correlation between weight and volume.

    Regardless of how light it is if the volume is too large, the storage still hits its limit. The same with heavier weight and smaller volume.

    Both the volume and the weight determine the storage limits.

  14. This story has a very convenient Plot Armor all the time, I understand that Maevis, Mile and Kureria can run for so long, but it does not seem logical that Rena a magician and Pauline with that pair of tits and also being a weak magician in stamina can follow them without problems.

    Pauline is not supposed to be the healer ……. she acts more like an attacker
