Divine Protection of Many Gods Episode 10

Takami no Kago Episode 10

*100% completed*

In the morning of the next day, Mr. Kuresuto and a woman who already finished the traveling preparations were waiting for me in an open space close to the east gate of the meeting place.

“Good morning. I’m sorry to have kept you all waiting.”

Since we decided that we would leave in the morning, we just didn’t set an exact time. In the first place owning a watch is very expensive, so only rich nobles and merchants can afford one. Mr. Kuresuto looked over at me and smiled before he was about to say something.

“Don’t worry about it, we only arrived a short while ago. It’’s not a problem. Thank you in advance from today onwards.”

“Likewise, Thank you as well.”

“So, she’ll be the guide from this point on. ”

“Hello my name is Poroia [ポーロイアです].”

“Hi, I’m an adventurer. My best regards. And this is Aria another member of my party.”

“My best regards.”
-TL: I think this is Aria who said this, since there was no subject specifically mentioned, and she was mentioned in the previous line.

Aria quickly finished her greeting in a few words. It seems that her communication with others is still a bit weak. It seems that she seems comfortable with talking to me and Lily. After all she would seems a little tense when meeting someone else for the first time.

“So will we be leaving now? Yeah, I already have the carriage waiting for us outside of the East Gate.”

Looking at the carriage by the East Gate, it seems that there is no one in the driver’s seat. It seems that Mr. Kuresuto himself will be driving us.

“Doing business in Wereo Village has to be done directly and I can’t bring that many people with me.”
-TL: This dialogue confused the hell out of me?

[Jade Fabric] tends to generate tons of wealth. That’s why he is trying to limit the information surrounding it. We’ll probably be have to be very careful even after the request is finished. I still think that it’s very mysterious how all of the previous people to do this ended up dying.

“Why did you make a request such as this so last minute. Why did you want to employ us adventurers who have very little experience act as you gaurds.”

I try questioning Mr. Kuresuto a little bit.

“Hmm. Because unlike the people before you I can trust you.”

“Why would you say something like that?”

“Merchant’s intuition. If I had to say something, its because I don’t feel your desire in having the [Jade Fabric] from you as much as the others. Normally such a narrow minded person is only thinking about making short-term profits. But I have already confirmed your intelligence just from talking to you.”

“I will try to fulfill your expectations of me.”

Its not that I particularly want to have the [Jade Fabric]. I thought about what he said about me as the type of person who doesn’t really care about the value of it. I think its probably due to my nature. After a while we were finally out of the city, and currently heading towards the forest Aria and I always go to. As we slowly approached the familiar forest Aria opened her mouth as if she wanted to say something.

“Master, it appears that someone is being attacked by monsters ahead.”
“What?”

It makes sense that there would be monsters in this forest. I don’t know if the person being attacked is a merchant or a traveler. I should probably inform Mr. Kuresoto about this and see what he was to say.

“It looks like it can’t be helped. Im sorry about this but I’m going to fight that monster.”

“Are you sure?”

I usually wouldn’t put myself in harms way just to help someone else being attacked. Considering I was requested by the Adventurer’s Guild to be this merchants bodyguard it can’t be helped.

“I think this would be a perfect opportunity to see the extent of your abilities. Of Course I will give you an additional reward if you battle it.”

“Fine. Aria do you know the number of opponents we’ll be facing?”

“There are most likely 5 of them.”

“Alright then, if thats the case you should guard the carriage then. I’ll come back when I’m finished with them.”

“Certainly.”

I walked forward alone leaving guarding the carriage to Aria. The horse drawn-carriage greatly reduced its speed. Leaving the number of people guarding the carriage dropped to zero would seem unacceptable. Aria should be able to tell if the course of the battle changes to my disadvantage, and only then would she step in to help. I discovered the group of monsters around what I presume is an abandoned carriage.

******************************************
Its a [Goblin]. It seems that the things that attacked that person were these fellows. There was equipment scattered everywhere in tatters. It looks like he is a situation where he couldn’t escape even if he wanted to being surrounded by 5 goblins. Is that a woman I see. Their skin color was green and stood about 120cm in height. They have a tattered cloth around their waists. It looks like that’s the standard for them. In this fantasy world I would compare them to slimes. Goblins are by no means strong monsters. If someone fought them alone they would probably win, even if they weren’t adventurers. However Goblins are not monster to be reckoned with. That’s because they’re almost never alone, they fight with elementary strategies such as decoy and pincer attack while fighting as a group. In addition they tend to prefer human females over their very own females of the same race. Their gestation is extremely quick, as well as their fast growth. It takes them roughly 2 weeks to reach adulthood. Meanwhile, I proceeded to cut down one goblin from its backside, since it’s a monster disliked most by the female adventurers.

“Danger!!”

There were three left after my surprise attack. Of course I don’t stay in one place after being detected. The second goblin charges at me from its previous position. I cut off one his arms as he charged at me, and then avoided the rest of his attack by quickly maneuvering my body in time to doge. Now there are only two left. Now the fight is two against two, although it would be cruel if they attacked the female near me. Immediately the Goblins who were taken back by my surprise attack quickly try to recover themselves.

“Aria now!”
-TL: Where did she come from? I thought she was guarding the carriage, unless I miss translated that part?

*Creek*
I quickly look behind the goblins. The two quickly look behind themselves. I can’t overlook such an opportunity. I quickly seized my sword with both hands, as I quickly stepped forward, and sweaped my sword from one side to the other, ending up decapitating both of their heads at once. One can force their way through a fight relying on stats alone, but I used my experience from fighting monsters in the forest. Using a feit as an attack is very effective for monsters that have the same level of intelligence of Goblins. I could have fought a little better if Aria was here and we worked together instead.

“Are you okay?”
“Y, Yes. Thank you for saving me from them. Wait, Its you!?”

“Um? Do I know you from somewhere, oh you’re that female in the Adventurer’s Guild from yesterday.”

Whoops, I remember that it’s the mysterious alchemist I checked that stats of.  But this is an unnecessary thing to say so i’ll withhold that piece of information.

“Ah, yes. I remember you now.”

“Its probably because you’re a cute girl. But didn’t I remind you to be careful last time?”

Emily tried to explain while her face became extremely red.

“You, you think I’m cute!? Oh, I am sorry. I absolutely needed the money…”

“For the time being do you want to head back to your wagon.”

Just as I was talking to her the wagon I’m being paid to guard pulls up.

“Are you alright master?”

“Yeah, there were five goblins. Aria you were right.”

Aira’s ability to accurately detect and predict roughly the number of enemies is amazing. Oh but, there are a few marginal errors in the identifying the exact number, though she wasn’t able to detect if it was a human, demon, or another beastman. It still is very beneficial when you’re searching in the woods.

“I dealt with the 5 goblins easily. I used my experience and abilities.”

Kuresuto looked very impressed as I spoke.

“I was only able to make a surprise attack, since she was being attacked by them.”

I tried telling them about what happened in as much detail as possible.

“She?”

Poroia seems to be worried about Emily since she was attacked and is a female as well.

“Ah, err… I’m fine. Thank you for having you help me.”

Emily bowed her head slightly as she spoke.

“This far is good enough. I will be alright…”

She began to head back into town after she finished talking. Surely Emily will be able to make it back into town after only an hour of walking since she didn’t get any major injuries from the attack. It will talk her 15 minutes to get out of this dangerous forest. After all this is supposed to be a highway even in the forest or out of it monster rarely appear let alone attack people. I was able to confirm the short sword Emily was using crumbled into pieces.  It looks like Emily was not accustomed to fighting with a sword. Since walking alone without a sword is rather dangerous, I gave her one of my spare swords instead. She still wouldn’t readily accept it without some persuasion.

“I don’t need it you should keep it.”

“Then this is a loan, Swords are very expendable so you don’t need to necessarily return it. You can give me something else in return. I’m an adventurer. I usually head to the Guild just about everyday. Contact me when you’re ready to repay your debt to me.”

In the long-run gain favor with an alchemist goes a long way.

“Yes, sir. I’ll return it without failure.”

Emily says that as she heads back into town.

“Then, shall we continue our departure?

The carriage began to move due to Mr. Kuresuto’s command.

Monster Musume Harem o Tsukurou! Chapter 3 “Girl, Skill, Magical Power Quantity”

Edited Version

Translated by : Afro (Me) & Indra13 (Senpai)

Editied by : Mimi-dono

*PLEASE NOTE THAT WE BOTH WORKED ON THIS TOGETHER SO I HOPE SOMEONE IN THE COMMENTS DOESN’T SAY THAT I STOLE THIS, I REPEAT AGAIN WE ARE WORKING TOGETHER ON THIS.*

Girl, Skill, Magical Power Quantity

Actual Author’s note: Anyway, today rest
——————————————————————————————————————-
“Well then once more, I am the Headmistress Ivory Maxwell. Nice to meet you, Tsuchio-bou

The headmistress is a grandmother who wears a large robe and put up her hair together. Because there is a cane leaning on the desk, she must be able to use magic is what I’m thinking.

“Uh…. What kind of person enters this academy?”

“Anyone can join as long as they don’t have any sort of criminal record. Well, they also have to be at least 13 years old, Now that you mention it Tsuchio-bou, how old are you?”

“I am 16 years old according to the olden ways.”

“Oh, that fell short of my expectations, I thought you were about 14.”

Apparently since I’m Japanese, I seem to have a baby face. If I went to a foreign country, they probably wouldn’t sell me liquor.

“The entrance examination is in two days. Oh dear, there no need to be so worried, they’re only an inspection of your magic and skills.”

“I understand. That reminds me there was a rule stating that all students are required to stay in a dormitory right? So where will I be staying?”

“Until you get accepted, is it possible for you to stay somewhere else, considering you are getting quite a lot of money from Kisato-bou?”

“Yeah, but….do you know any inn where I’ll be able to stay together with Ruu?”

“Several places will do it. if you give them my name, they will give you various accommodation. The thing that I can help Tsuchio-bou with are just something like that, for the rest of it, please do your best.”

“Yes, thank you very much.”

*****

It seems that the inn the Headmistress introduced me to was an inn for a tamer, you could see a lot of magical beast in there. However there were quite a lot of people that look at Ruu too.

It seems that there are Stone Coin, Copper Coin, Silver Coin, Gold Coin, and White Gold Coin in the Kingdom currency. It seems that the exchange rate is 100 pieces lower coin to 1 pieces upper coin. Since staying in the inn cost 10 piece of copper coin, I think that each coin value are 10 yen; 1000 yen; 100,000 yen; 10 million yen; and 1 billion yen. It’s japanese yen exchange rate though.

For two whole days, I flew through the sky earnestly, while I practiced my magic diligently. I myself am unsure if I possess any magical capabilities, but I wont find out unless I try.

After the two days had passed, once again, I stood in front of the large gate. Besides me standing here, are many other children as well, who also passed through the gate. I also immediately go to take the examination. Alright! But I wonder, can I do it?

Even if I use a false name it would get found out, magic is really awesome thing, huh? By the way, when I read the words of this world they were automatically converted into Japanese language inside my head. And when I wrote in Japanese, the words automatically changed into the characters of this world. Hurray, for convenient-ism!

“Please wait in the lobby, until your number is called.”

My number is… 143 huh? Is that mean I’m the 143th person? Shall I wait in the bench? When I sit down in a bench, Ruu also sits near me and then she put her head in my knee. Because recently I always caressing her head all the time, she seems to like it. Oh well, since she is cute when she close her eyes and *purrr* her throat rumbling so it’s fine.

T/N: she really likes a cat huh? – indra13

While waiting for my turn leisurely, the people in here are increasing one by one. While the bench around me keep on being filled with people chattering happily making an acquaintance, I keep on caressing Ruu. ……Why no one coming to the bench that I sitting on huh?…… Maybe because Ruu are scary huh?….. Just why?

“stare…..”

“…”

“stare…”

A small girl is intensely staring at me and Ruu from some time ago. Her abundant hair are being let out in front of both of her shoulder and it’s tied up with a black ribbon. Her height is quite short, It’s not even 140cm I guess huh?

“…Do you want to touch her?”

“Is it fine dearimasu!?”

T/N: “dearimasu” is “dear master”

T/C: no, dearimasu is a habit ending sentence like degozaru, gozaru, nyaa, etc^^ – indra13

…..huh? she says -dearimasu? Which genius professor chief inumimi girls are you?

T/N: any idea from what anime, manga, novel, or games all the character that he said came from? – indra13

“Ye, yeah. Don’t touch her head ok? Or she will bite your hands off. It’s better to caress her back from top to the bottom ok?”

“U, Understood-dearimasu…”

The girls caressing Ruu timidly. Though Ruu want to move away when the girls hand touch her, I stop her intention with my eyes. If she act violently right now, my academy live will surely become grey.

“Oooh! It’s so smooth-dearimasu.”

“That’s because I washed her yesterday.”

“It’s warmer than I though-dearimasu.”

“Is, is that so? that’s compared with what?”

This girl keeps patting Ryuu frantically. Gradually Ruu’s moods starts to worsen. If I don’t stop her soon, things could get bad.

T/N: Ruu didn’t like anyone besides her darling touching her body ^^ – indra13

“Ok, that’s the end of it”

“Yeyeaーh…”

The girls hardly separated from Ruu. *reluctantly* She separate herself from Ruu in reluctance. Ruu come to me rubbing her head to mine as if to say “praise me pra~ise me!”.

T/N: kuh… what kind of things she is? soo cuuute – indra13

“She is really tamed huh-dearimasu!”

“That’s because the way we encounter each other are intense…”

“Is that so-dearimasu? …ah, I haven’t introduce myself yet-dearimasu! I am Triss-dearimasu! A dwarf-dearimasu!”

“I am Tsuchio. Nice to meetcha.”

It looks like everyone here is only giving their basic name. I too will do the same.

“It’s my pleasure to meet you-dearimasu, Tsuchio-san!”

“Eh, -san! Isn’t it supposed to be a -dono!”

“hm? is it better to use -dono-dearimasu?”

“Well, it’s better like that I think.”

“Is that so-dearimasu? Then, from now on I will use -dono-dearimasu! It’s my pleasure to meet you Tsuchio-dono.”

T/N: I’ll explain a bit if you’re new to japan. Basically it’s a pattern for anyone that talking with -dearimasu or -degozaru as it’s ends word to refer to someone as -dono, hence Tsuchio is surprised when Tris called him “Tsuchio-san” instead of “Tsuchio-dono”.- indra13

Alright! I don’t know how, but I made it to make the honorific change into -dono. After all, if your end sentence is -arimasu, then the honorific that you should use are -dono right?!

Or rather, did she just say a dwarf right now!? Usually Dwarf girl have a small stature, an abundant hair, and well mannered, but even in this world it was also like that huh?

“Is Tsuchio-dono a tamer-dearimasu?”

“Yeah, since Triss is a dwarf, do you aiming to become a master blacksmith?”

As soon as the topic became master blacksmith, Triss face suddenly became gloomy ……Was it a taboo topic?

“…I came to learn martial arts.Because dwarves posses incredible strength.”

Her gloomy face were last only in a moment, immediately Triss was back to her smiling face. It’s likely that smithing is kind of skill that a talent let us learn I guess huh?

“I still do not know what kind of skill that I have you know. Though I think that I have [Tame] as my skill, I’m really looking forward on whether I have or not any skill other than that you know.”

“Is that so-dearimasu? …Then I will also looking forward to it-dearimasu!”

『Person with number 143rd, please go into room 11th』

It’s my turn. At last I will be able to find out my magical power amount and skill.

“Well then, I’m off. See you later, Triss. Ruu, come.”

“Ah, yes. Do your best-dearimasu, Tsuchio-dono!”

“There is nothing to do my best for, you know. Oh well, you too do your best Triss.”

With Ruu, we head towards the door with 11 on it. Everyone that sees Ruu’s distanced themselves from us as they pleases. I must do something about this, it’s not that important, but it’s for our own comfort.

T/N: I guess Tsuchio think that he must do something to make them not afraid of Ruu so that they don’t suddenly attacking that lovely Wyvern out of fear. – indra13

Because the door is only at the size of a person, I decide to have Ruu waiting for me in front of the room. Since I said to her that it’s okay to threaten anyone that come to touch her, I think no one would dare to make a move on her.

T/N: Overprotective husband, aren’t you? – indra13

When I knock the door,

“Please come in”, a young woman voice came out of it. When I enter the room, A beautiful woman-san who  wear a glasses and gathered her hair in the rear side with a barrette sitting across the desk on the opposite sides. There were a big crystal and A4 sized paper on top of the desk.

“Please sit here.”

I sit down in the chair that’s in front of the desk. What’s this?, this somehow looks similar to a job interview. I could feel the tension.

“First, I will examine your skill, please place your hand on this piece of paper.”

I placed my hand on the paper as previously instructed. After waiting a short while, a figures one after another began to appear on the piece of paper.

“Thi, this is?”

“Because the figures order in which they came out are fast, this means that your talent are still sleeping inside you. In addition to that, the figures color are thick, this means that the talent that sleeping in you are great. We should know what skill you have by the figures shape. This is…. [Tame] huh. Since the colors are thick, it seems to be quite strong huh.”

“Is that so?. Ah, the next one is coming out.”

A different figure came out this time. The color this time is surely lighter than [Tame].

“This is…. [Caress]?”

“Yes?”

“It seems that you’re skillful in caressing. Are you skillful in it?”

“You might say it like that ….Since I caress quite well.”

“It’s like that. Skinship is also important if you want to tame a magical beast, so I think it’s a convenient skill you know.”

[Caress] she said…. Something like that are also a skill huh? ….Nah, probably I grind it too much that it became a skill right?

“Are there still any skill that not yet show up?”

“There are a talent sleeping in everyone you know. The average is three talent for each person I guess?”

“Haaah…. Then with this I’m done huh?”

The figure that came out was slightly lighter than [Caress]. No matter how I caressed something it will feels good you know….

“This is… [Magical Hands]”

“[Magical Hands]? What is that?”

“You will be able to manage magical power with your own hands. Have you experience it?”

….When Ruu use [Body Enhancement Magic], I was able to move her magical power and further strengthen her enhancement power. That must be it.

“Perhaps, I have experience it.”

“That’s good if you have. Since if you aware of it then it won’t become a problem when you want to use it.”

“Is, is that so?”

“…..but, [Caress] and [Magical Hands]? …I can say that it’s quite a brutal, ah, no, a powerful combination.”

“Yes?”

“It’s only a slip of tongue ok?”

“Ah, there seems to be more skill shown up. Several of the talents are no more than average.”

“Don’t say it like the rest of all of my talents are below average please….”

“Excuse me, it’s my habits. The next one that came out are [Support Magic]. Since the colors are not that thick, it’s better if you not expect it too much.”

“Just like I said before, why the heck did you have to say it in the way that could crush my heart huh! Did I ever hurt you or something!?”

“Excuse me, it’s my habits.”

“Cliché!?”

“Cli… what?”

“N,no. It’s nothing.”

T/N: This conversation are referencing to all the scene where the mc are talking with a girl’s that love talking mean to him, the only example that I can tell you right now are in LN titled Bokushinu v1 ch1 translated by Heretic Translation and the conversation exchange between Ms. Clarisse and Regis from Altina by Skythewood translation – indra13

Do the earth specific phrase won’t get through to the people here? I need to pay attention to what I say because it’s a bother to treated like some oddball.

“With that it’s the end of your skill examination, let’s move on to your magical power quantity examination. Please put your hands on this crystal ball.”
I take out my hands to put them on the crystal ball. I guess if this is a novel story then this is the time that show up that I got an absurd amount of magical power and the crystal ball will be broken up, but…. I don’t have any expectation for such thing to happen you know. After all, there are no magical power in earth right? And also I’m an earthling. Therefore I don’t have any magical power. What a magnificent syllogism!

In the first place, it was a miraculous thing for me to be able to tame Ruu. The next thing that make me able to tame her are my effort.

T/N: This is a novel though, Tsuchio ^^ – indra13

I placed my hand on the crystal ball, after a while the center of the crystal ball began to shine dimly. The light is so weak that it’s like it can disappear at any time. A~h, as expected huh? Live won’t always go smoothly you know.

“…It’s quite scarce, I guess it’s better to say that it’s 0 huh? My condolences.”

“Thanks for your sympathy.”

“You are not surprised by it huh? For it to be this scarce, it’s actually an abnormal thing you know. If your magical power quantity are like this then it will be hard for you to master even a shabby support magic you know. Moreover, it will be considerable harsh for you to use magical beast in a fight with only this few magical power…”

“That’s alright, since I already expected it to be like that.”

“Is that so? Well, since it’s not exactly 0 then you will still be able to use [Magical Hands]. Please do your utmost best from now on since there is also a possibility for it to increase.”

“I will surely do my best since I want to get stronger after all you know. I won’t be able to become a tamer if I’m not strong, even if by chance I become a tamer, but if I were to be a weak person then it’s gonna be an inexcusable thing for me. I will become a worthless master if that were to happens.”

“I will give up on it if it’s me.”

“Right? That’s why I will do my best to become stronger. And I also want to know what I can do in here.”

“(In here?) ….What do you mean by that?”

“It’s a secret. I’m too embarrassed to say it. Well then, thank you very much for your help.”

I said that and leave the room. Well then, since I have made Ruu waiting for me I’d better caress her a lot. Since it seems that I have it as my talent you know. Caress, caress, and keep on caressing so that my talent will grow! If I caressing them even a magical beast will be madly in love with me! …Maybe a girls will to huh?

T/N: You wish! -_- – indra13

*****

Tris wasn’t in the Lobby. Probably, it’s likely for her to be called for an examination. When I returned to the reception desk, I was given a dormitory key and a metal plate that have some number written on it. I’m told to let Ruu live at the Magical Beast Hut.This metal plate seems to be the key for the Hut. Perhaps it was made by a magic. Convenient huh.

First I must take Ruu to the Magical Beast Hut. While I searching for a plank that have the same number with the metal plate, I saw a wolf and an enormous snake in the corner of the Hut. Ah, this is huh?

“Ruu from now on this is your nest. When I am not around, you will spend your time here.”

“Guru.”

Ruu obediently goes inside the room. Oh, I thought she would show more resistance… It’s good for her to be unusually obedient.

“Well then…. are you going to obediently lie down and sleep?”

“Guru?”

When I’m about to go out, Ruu bite my clothes hemp to stop me from doing that. Just like that *drag* she pulled me in to the center of the room to coil me. This fellow, she won’t let me leave her huh? ….Because we always sleep together until now, for Ruu it’s an obvious thing that we would also sleep together now. However!

T/N: is that mean both of you sleep together in the inn before? – indra13

“Hear me Ruu. I won’t sleep in here. Ruu are the only one that will sleep here.”

“Guru!? Gurururu!”

“Noo, Noooo!”, even if you say it like that… It’s already been decided, I’m also want to sleep at some soft bed…. Though Ruu is soft, she is still lose to a bed.

“Gururu …”

“This is just a place where you’ll sleep at night. During the day we’ll be together…. it should be. So from now on please sleep here, okay?“

“Guru…”

Though she considerably reluctant to it, it seems that she is more hate to trouble me than be separated from me for awhile. She separate herself from me while almost cried ….Somehow, I’ve become a detestable guy huh….

T/N: Damn you Tsuchio! How dare you to make that lovely wyvern cry! – indra13

“Once I put my baggage in the dorm, I’ll come back here, ok? I’ll come to see you first thing in the morning, ok? That’s why, please wait for me in here for a while ok?”

“Guruu…”

When I locked the door, a transparent film like membrane covers the entrance of the room. When I try to touch it *ZAP* it shocked me. The heck, is this an electric fence or something!?…..

“I’ll be back soon. So behave yourself while I’m gone.”

“Gururu…”

T/N Awww….. poor girl.-afro

Ruu turns around, and begins coiling herself. I will come back as soon as possible……

I re-wrote the currency value in this chapter on 11/21/13. Because I wrote this half-asleep, I made various mistakes. I’m sorry.

Divine Protection of Many Gods Episode 9

Takami no Kago Episode 9

TL note: The dialogue and some of the translations in here are a bit rough, so please forgive me for that. I did the best with what the MT gave me. Other than that Enjoy!

The next day, I went to the Adventurer’s Guild receptionist desk to confirm that I will accept the previous request, but found a strange guy. He kept walking back and forth between the request board and the receptionist desk, he also wore a slightly dirty robe that hid his face.

“Who is that person?”

After staring at this person for a while, I decided to look at their status.

******************************************

Emily [emī]  Lvl. 3  Alchemist  Age: 14

Endurance: 200

Strength: 35

Agility: 45

Intelligence: 90

Luck: 75

『Curse of Production Obstruction(or)Inhibition』

Effect: A curse is applied to the things produced from this individual.

Target: Herself (Manufacturing)

*******************************************

Ara, it’s a 『Curse』.

However the job category of an Alchemist is rarely seen in the Adventurers Guild. An Alchemist is a type of job that allows them to create anything. Alchemist can make necessary [Potions] which every adventurer needs whether its to cure an abnormal state or a buff, and it’s possible for them to create accessories with special effects. Alchemists can’t make weapons or armors because that is the job of a『Blacksmith master』or just old plain             『Blacksmith』. Alchemists are able to give weapons and armors special effects after they have been made. Needless to say, the effects you get are only slightly better than the ones you already get if they were made by a 『Blacksmith master』.

“However, having a [Curse] that affects production quality seems to be fatal.”

Initially an Alchemist is not a combat related job, but since that curse affects their livelihood it would help explain why they’re currently at the Adventurers Guild. But then again those with a [Curse] are rarely seen at an Adventurer’s Guild.

“Excuse me, are you an adventurer?”

“Indeed I am. Are you different?”

Emily seemed to be surprised by my response. I don’t know why she thought I wasn’t an adventurer.

“If you end up exhibiting such strange behavior in the Adventurer’s Guild, one would think you’re a suspicious person.”

“But, might you perhaps be an adventurer from another town.”

“I don’t look like an Adventurer since I came from another city. With that being said I probably look like a rookie adventurer.”

Usually adventurers start “adventuring” in the place they were born in. They do this on purpose because they usually don’t get any benefits starting out in another town anyways. Also if they do their adventuring near the town they were born in most of the monsters have already been seen or heard of at least. Then in order to test their skills when they become full fledged adventurers they go to other towns and try their luck. In other words the person in front of me can’t be an adventurer from somewhere else. I decided to talk to Emily, while thinking that it has only been about 1 month since I became an adventurer.

“Oh is that so. Well I’m not technically an adventurer yet since I haven’t finished my registration yet.”

“Really? If that’s the case then you can go register yourself at the receptionist desk, because you won’t be able to choose a request until you join.”

I feel like an annoying person trying to tell her what to do.

“Thank you very much. Where is the registration desk ?”

“Over there by the receptionist desk.”

I pointed over to the counter where Lily was at.

“You’ll need to pay 10 Gale [Yen] for the registration fee, so be prepared to do so.”

“But I don’t have any money!”

Wait a minute, what kind of country-bumpkin sheltered female are you. Wait, isn’t it rude for me a person from a different world to think like this ?

“You only have to pay for the registration fee. There is no end to the people who end up registering half-heartedly, even the guild card isn’t free.”

I think that it’s a fair price to only pay 10 yen for both registering and getting a guild card. But if you want to get your card reissued it will cost 100 yen(Gale).

“It can’t be. Even with all the money I have on me I only have 10 yen(Gale).”

Don’t junior high school students carry roughly 1,000 yen on hand.

“Well, you could give up on a request if you find it impossible to complete.”

“I, I absolutely need the money!”

“How much?”

“…15 Gold coins.”

“Well, that’s impossible. As far as I know the only way you could get 15 gold coins fast will have to be if you were able to complete a dragon subjugation, since that is the only request with 15 gold coins as the reward.”

“I heard that Adventurers could earn money. Its okay if I don’t earn all of the money at once!”

This girl, dreams of being an adventurer.

“Even if you compare the earnings of first-rate adventurers to average ones, they certainly make more. But, that isn’t the only reason they earn that much money.”

Even though I have just started adventuring, my body still aches from it. The most I can make a day even with my “cheat” abilities is about 1 gold.

“B,but, I know I will.”

“Well, in the case of killing monsters, its feasible if you claim the reward and sell off any loot you gain from killing them.”

But I think 15 gold is too much.

“I understand. Thank you very much.”

Emily turns and walks toward the receptionist desk looking uneasy. Is she alright ?

“This might sound unreasonable. I won’t be back here for about 10 days due to work, when I do come back I would like to make arrangements with you.”

I faced her, and waved my hand towards Emily where she lowered her head, and I left the Adventurer’s guild. I’ll be leaving for Wereo village tomorrow. It is necessary to begin making preparations. I already made previous arrangements with Aria, in order to hasten our travelling.

 

Divine Protection of Many Gods Episode 8

Takami no Kago Episode 8

The merchants office was located near the West Gate of the city, just off the main street.

『Kuresuto Company』

“Is this it ?”

The town of Brett is in the center of the Angle continent, but the capital city of the Angle kingdom is on the west side of the continent.

The East side of the Angle kingdom is treated as a frontier, so it clearly has more monsters inhabiting this side as well has far more monster’s surprise attacks. The west side of Brett is mostly where all of the noble live in.

I don’t see anything wrong with the high-class [Jade Fabric] goods.

“Master, the guard in the merchant’s office is glaring at us.”

Aria looks like she was half-crying when she said that. I have never set foot in the West District where nobles live in. Probably because of anxiety Aria grabbed my sleeve and didn’t let go of it.

“It’s all right. we are probably stronger than that guy over there anyways.”

I confirmed the guards stat’s, and their levels are 2 and 3.

If they had such strong guards in the first place, why would they request the Adventurer’s Guild for help. Do I have to make a request to the guards in order to speak with the merchant.

“Um, we’re the people sent from the Adventurer’s Guild. Is Mr. Kuresuto home?”

The clients name was Kuresuto from the Kuresuto Company. In other words he would be the owner of this place, and the guards employer.

“Why do you need to speak with Mr. Kuresuto?”

Guard A seems to be looking down on me with a very condescending attitude. Guard B is only glaring at me with his eyes, what’s up with these hostile guys.

“I am here about the request Mr. Kuresuto made to the Adventurer’s Guild. I asked you if I could see him because I wanted to confirm this matter.”

From a civilian’s standpoint, this merchant is very wealthy and does business with prominent aristocrats. I should listen to what he has to say before I open my mouth. I shouldn’t really worry about this, except I need to be polite when I have to get my point across. In a very Japanese-like manner Hibiki politely spoke to the guards.

“I didn’t hear anything about a visitor coming. Go home.”

Guard A is trying to force me to comply using his intimidation. I’ll go home if they continue to be this persistent.  I decided that would be the best course of action.

“Anyway, since I just rushed over here, you might have not been informed that I was coming. I’m sorry, but could you please check again?”

I can only hope that they pass this on to Mr. Kuresuto if they refuse to check, because I’m going home if they refuse. In a moment guard A declared without any hesitation.

“I won’t do it now. Come back later.”

“I see well then, please forgive my impoliteness for today.”

Since he said so, I turned around and was about to head home.

“Wait a minute. Are you the adventurers sent by the Adventurer’s Guild?”

There was a stout man around the age of 40, with nicely tailored clothes on, standing at the entrance of the building.」

“I’m sorry about what happened to you earlier. Even though you’re an adventurer you’re as polite as a noble. On the contrary, as for our guards.”

This man was glaring at guard A while he said that. When guard A noticed the glare his face went pale.

“I, I’m very sorry sir!”

“I’ve had enough already. You will receive your punishment later. I was almost about to lose this relationship with this adventurer directly because of your actions.”

“Th, This can’t be!?”

“Shut up. Be silent and go stand over there until I say otherwise!”

After that guy said that, he urgently welcomed Hibiki into his mansion.

The inside of this house seemed to be overflowing with expensive furniture and priceless goods. However, that way it was all arranged inside made it not look distasteful. The inside of this house almost give off a feeling of nobility in it. Just like that Aria and I were guided down the hallway into the meeting room, and were quickly prompted to sit down on a sofa to begin the interview.

“This is the Kuresuto Company’s chamber of commerce. First of all, I have to apologize about the way you were treated earlier.”

“Er, don’t worry about it. He was just doing his job properly.”

“I’m happy when you say it like that.”

“I would like to talk about the matter you were making a request about more than that.”

I said that, and Kuresuto[Crest] nodded.

“The request states that we have to guard your wagon carrying your goods. Which will take approximately 3 days for us to reach Wereo village. We’ll stay in Wereo village for 2 days, while you purchase the good, and escort you back to Brett.

It’s about 6 days long round trip. Making it 8 days if we included the 2 days we stay there. It’s our first time traveling, but I think we’ll be alright.

“I understand what the request is saying. Although there are things I would like to confirm with you, the most important being. We are looking forward into making Brett our base of operations. Even if we go with you to Wereo village, we don’t know anything about it, or even where it’s even located.”

Mr. Kuresuto [Crest] made a gesture as if he was thinking, then slightly nodded. I don’t think he’ll have any problems.

“I have someone from Wereo village right here in my chamber of commerce. We could ask her to guide us while we are traveling so there wouldn’t be any problems.”

“I understand. But so far you have judged 4 pairs of adventurers so far and they have all failed, but how would you say we did?”

I only said that because I hate being rejected. And I would rather confirm it ahead of time as opposed to waiting.

“Of course. If an adventurer has a [Divine Gift] and acts just like nobles, then there’s no problem.”

Hmm, looks like the four set of adventurer’s that came before me were all disqualified for arguing with the guard outside. I think the test was to see if you could act like a nobleman instead of acting like a barbarian, while talking to the guard. It is also most likely that the guards outside were deliberately instructed to act like that to any adventurers coming for this request. Looks like they really don’t want anyone to be causing problems for them in Wereo Village. Even though Mr.  Kuresuto [Crest] seems like a good person, he is still a very wealthy merchant, who also deals with a lot of prominent noble figures, so he obviously doesn’t want anyone causing trouble for him.

Throughout this discussion Aria hasn’t said one word, except for when she made a difficult face.

“Are you okay Aria?”

When I talked to her, she made a relieved face and affectionately clung to me.

“What a relief. You’re still the same as ever master.”

“Yeah?”

She seems to have been confused because of the way I was talking drastically changed especially when I was speaking to the guards. It seems my humble way of talking looked rather ridiculous to Aria. I thought about what happened and decided to explain to Aria that depending on the person I was talking to, I had to adapt my speech to fit them and the conversation. Looks like she still doesn’t understand, looks like we should go to bed soon.

“At times it is necessary to humble oneself!”

The next morning I could see Aria talking to Lily about what I explained to her last night. I told you, it was a secret last night.
