Record of Wortenia War - v1-c13

Chapter 1 E 13 (Fleeing) 5



After dismantling the wild bee, Ryouma moves out of the forest. 
Since he asked to make lunch box at the Inn, he has plenty of time for searching. 
(Anyway, it seems like I've gotten used to battle eh.) 
Now, if only the weapon he owns is his beloved katana then. 
He thought of such thing... 
It seems like he can at least use the chakram using shuriken technique. However, it is unfortunate that he still finds it hard to use the sword. 
Usually, pull then cut = using power to cut, while the sword is hard to use due to the difference in using it. 
However, right now is not the time for him to worry about such a thing. Anyway, there's nothing he can do other than crossing the border with this equipment.

Probably the empire pursuers have already searched Ryouma at a faraway place right now. 
Given they have a horse, it was natural. 
The problem is whether the pursuers choose to go toward the eastern direction like Ryouma did or not, Ryouma then have a slight expectation. 
(If it were up to me, if I have to find someone that I don't know what kind of face the person have then, I won't be stingy at using how much personnel to search. Then I will make the guard at the border much thicker so that no one suspicious goes out of the country. Then narrow down the net, from the imperial capital to the borders.)

Ryouma's thought continues as he went through the forest. 
(Just this time, I was able to win by not getting captured at the imperial capital narrowly. The advantage of my face being not known by them is only up to that point. However, how will I cross the border later...?)

Ryouma suddenly opened his eyes wide with the spectacle in front of him. 
The trees in the forest are being cuts and only left a vast open space. 
*Gurururu* 
Suddenly howling sounds can be heard. 
There's a dog as big as 1 meter long there. Dozens of them. 
Probably they are one family. Among them, dog's Childs can be seen too. 
(Are those guys the wild dog...?) 
He cannot yet make a move since the other party seems to be very vigilant. 
Perhaps because there's the dog child, he feels a little bit hesitant. 
(This is a chance...) 
Ryouma quickly took the chakram and aimed at the dog parents who are currently guarding the child. 
*Fon* 
The chakram flew cutting through the wind. 
If the wild dog were to dodge that, it would hit the child. 
If the wild dog did not avoid that, it would hit. 
One after another Ryouma threw the chakram. 
*Zashu* 
A sounds cutting some flesh. 
*Kiyui~~* 
A howl of agony.
Ryouma then quickly pulls his sword and run toward the wild dog immediately.

Eight wild dogs are coming toward Ryouma. 
And some take crouched stance with their body being wounded by the chakrams,  
The first one that sprung attacking Ryouma is the one standing in front of him by 2 meters. 
(Damn it, I guess they are still a beast...) 
Ryouma plunged his sword to the dog open wide mouth. 
One can say, jumping is not a good strategy. 
Because if you don't have wings, you won't be able to make any good maneuver in the air. 
The story would be different if it were an ambush, but if it's frontal battle like this then, it is not a good idea. 
In the first place, the wild dog doesn't have much of intelligence. 
It jumps toward Ryouma based on instinct. 
The seventh, eight, then ninth. 
He avoided the wild dog who jumped consecutively toward him, and when they passed him, he knocked them down. 
While he handled them mechanically, Ryouma make a careless move. 
One of them did not jump and rushed toward his foot with its fangs. 
*Dogun* 
Ryouma kick out his right foot toward its neck and broke the neck. 
And then, Ryouma pierced his sword to the wild dog head that he kicked. 
(Fuu, That was dangerous. I was careless...) 

The are only three left. 
They are the Childs of the wild dog.
As expected of a creature called a monster, even as a child they seem to be quite ferocious. 
They raise threatening groan toward Ryouma. 
The distance is around 5 meters. 
Ryouma prepare his swords on the left side. It is a stance that aims from the lower left to the upper right. 
Both of them then glared at each other, and gradually the air around them become heavy. 
Ryouma vs. three of them. 
At the time the wild dog's blood thirst was going to explode, Ryouma erases his blood thirst all at once.  
Due to that, the three wild dogs hesitated to attack him. 
There, Ryouma cuts down their distance quickly. 
He draws the sword from the lower left to the upper right in a flash, then one of the dog head flew. 
Then the raised sword drew the same trajectory and cut the second. 
Maybe because it feels danger being alone, the third one immediately turn around and began running. 
(As if I let you escape!) 
Ryouma pierced the sword into the ground and took out chakram and threw it. 
(Fuu, 13 of them in total...)

The battle itself took around three to four minutes. 
Because all of them are being done just by a single strike, thus he didn't need much time to finish. 
He wiped his sweat that appeared on his forehead with his hand, then Ryouma breathed out deeply. 
(The chakram is not bad... the bad point is the need to collect them after using it...) 
Because there's no handle and all the outer circle of the chakram is the blade, although the power is significant but, because of that the chakram always stuck buried inside the meat. 
He cleans up all the blood from six chakrams and put it back inside the bag on his waist. 
(Now then, let us begin... let's see...) 
According to the beginner's guide book, the valuable part of the wild dog is only the canine that grows from the upper jaw and the fur. 

Although Ryouma can do it by hands, he decided to used the sword to peel off the fur of the wild dog.

Record of Wortenia War - v1-c12

TLN: Still unable to make jump note/anchor note... mwu, rawr. XD
You might notice that there's no TLN on the middle of the page, well, I won't put any, until I can make jump link/anchor link.
2 chapters again, for today and yesterday... oh yea, starting tomorrow will be seiju until chapter 80.


Chapter 1 E 12 (Fleeing) 4



Ryouma narrowed his eyes because of the light of the morning sun. 
He carried his sword, and the chakram inside the leather bag and hung them on his left and right waist; then he went east on the highway. 

"But still, that was dangerous..." 

Yesterday, after he buys weapons. 
Ryouma bought five magic potion and five antidotes from the second-hand magic store, a simple tent, a map of the western continent, and also a backpack to put all of those things. 
He thought of what to do with the armors but, it is hard to match his body size with the pre-made armors. 
Since currently Ryouma have not much time, he decided to buy it at a later date. 
For the time being, the equipment has been completed, at the time Ryouma had dinner at Oceanic Nois, he noticed. 


"Ah!" 

Ryouma voice echoes inside of the Oceanic Nois restaurant that has been turned into a bar. 
The eyes of the customer who visited the bar turned at Ryouma all at once. 

"M- Ma'am..." 

"What? What's wrong?" 

Surprised by Ryouma voice, the hostess comes closer to Ryouma. 
She came up to Ryouma worried that insect might enter his meal, but as far as she looks at him, that does not seem to be the case. 
As the hostess come to him timidly, Ryouma speak toward the hostess with a small voice. 

"Letter. The latter..." 

"Did you lost the letter that means to be delivered !?" 

After listening to Ryouma small muttering, the hostess complexion changed. 
This is, in fact, a huge failure. If it's like this, he will have definitely pay the indemnity. 
No, if it's money, he still has plenty. It would be different if he has a little bit experience, however, if a beginner were to fail at doing a beginner quest then, it would difficult for him to undertake a new quest. 
However, hearing Ryouma answer, the hostess expression turn into a smile. 

"N- No... in fact, I have not yet received the letter..." 

"Ha haan. You, you haven't didn't go to the delivery counter yet haven't you?" 

"Delivery counter?" 

It seems like the visitors who tried to listen to them understood the situation. They have smirked and smile on their face looking at Ryouma. 

"Oi. A new face here. " 

"Indeed, I'm also like that the first time." 

"After all the guild is a bureaucrat too." 

The whispering voice reaches Ryouma ears from around the corner. 

"Ahahaha." 

Because she can't stand it anymore, the hostess laughed loudly  The surrounding mercenaries laughed together as well. 

"??" 

Ryouma was unable to understand why they laughed at him. 

"Iya~, my bad, my bad. Well indeed, half of the beginner end up just like you right now." 

Noticing Ryouma fell silent with a stupid face, the hostess covers her mouth with her apron and apologize. However, a smile still floats on her face. 

"What's going on actually?" 

Toward Ryouma question, words come flying from the people around him. 

"For the new face trial, cheers~!!" 

"A victim of the bureaucracy, glory to that!" 

"New face! Don't lose heart and do your best alright~~." 

He did not understand the situation at all. Ryouma turned his gaze filled with question toward the hostess. 
Looking at Ryouma with such face, the hostess shrugs her shoulders while shaking her head. 

"You... After registering at the guild, didn't you get anything?" 

"The guild is it? The registration card... ah!" 

After listening to the hostess words, Ryouma remembered something. 

(That's right! after finished with my registration and I was about to head back, I get a booklet!) 
It was being handed over by receptionist after I'm done registering. 
Ryouma receive it then just throw it in his bag and forgot about it until now. 

"Have you read the third page?" 

Listening hostess words Ryouma opens the booklet in haste. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Each request quest achievement procedure: 
【Request quest: Related to delivery category】 
At the time one's undertake delivery quest course, receive the delivery object at the delivery counter located in the guild. 
The quest end condition is by delivering the item to the delivery counter at the next town guild. 

【Request quest: Subjugation category.】 
When undertaking subjugation 《quest》, Every time the target is being subjugated, it will automatically be recorded on the license card. 
And, the quest will end by the time the card being submitted to the guild delivery counter. 
Unless if it was specified, one might report at any guild in any city. 

Attention: 
After the subjugation target inhabitant has been decided, make sure you always being accompanied by the guild attendant, it is necessary as proof that you do subjugation in the right place if not, 
In such case, the automatic record cannot be used, so be careful. 

【Request quest: procurement category.】 
In case you undertaking the procurement quest, the quest will end if the procurement item has been delivered to the guild delivery counter. 
In case it's not being specified, you may report it at any city guild. 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

"These guys..." 

Ryouma looked at the title of the booklet which is written as "Guild beginner guide." 
The material that contains in it is the necessary information which beginner need to know. 

"You received the quest from the receptionist counter right?" 

Ryouma nodded toward the hostess question. 

"A reception counters will only accept reception. Thus when you received a request for a delivery quest category or other requests, after having accepted the quest, you must go to the delivery counter and get the item they want to delivery." 

Now that she mention it like that, he's convinced, but, Ryouma is not entirely satisfied by it. 
Although he doesn't intend in making any excuse, it seems more efficient if they just hand over the item together with the time he took the quest, or so he thought. 
Well, since they indeed give the handbook, making Ryouma words which did not even put an effort to read it lack persuasive power. 
In the first place, it seems like there are many people like him. 
The hostess also said that many newcomers face such trouble because they didn't read it as well, and right now he was being seen like that as well. 

"You seems dissatisfied there~? Well, since they thought the system is complicated, they decide to give a booklet, but, most newcomers did not even take a glance at it. after all it's their first registration and first job. Mostly feel tense and forget about the booklet. Thus the new face trials, see?" 

The hostess might understand Ryouma feeling. While explaining to him carefully. 

"Does the guild still open I wonder?" 

The current time right now is 20:30 in the night. 
It is the time for the most shop to close, except shops such as bars. 

"Fufufu. The guild is open for 24 hours and 365 days. By the way, such matter was also written in the booklet; please read it later properly alright?" 

Hearing that, Ryouma stuffed his mouth with the grilled meat in a hurry. Then he paid the dinner bill at the counter and bowed toward the hostess and leave the shop. 
The place that he heads to is, of course, the guild delivery counter. 


"Yes! This is the requested item. Thank you very much. Mikoshiba-san." 

The woman is wearing a glasses handed over the letter wrapped with oil paper to Ryouma. 

"The steal stamp is using wax. If this thing peels off, you will receive penalties regardless you read the inside or not, please be careful alright." 

After reading the information on the guild board, Ryouma headed to the delivery counter situated on the first floor and then showed his card, and the guild receptionist woman handed the requested item readily.  
If he were to read the reference booklet from the beginning, then it would end fast. 

After that, he stayed at the hotel facing the main street, where he will leave the imperial capital at dawn. 


"Faah~~~~." 

Ryouma leave the entrance while yawning. 
Since it was early in the morning, there's only Ryouma around even after he walked in the highway leading to Melferen. 
After he had received the requested item at the guild yesterday, Ryouma spent the night in the hotel facing the main street.
Just like the hostess advice him, he read the booklet properly, and after he had thought about all the expense that he purchased, he fell to sleep. 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
Shirt, pants, mantle, and leather belt = 1000 baht (10 silver coins). 
Lunch time at the Oceanic Noise restaurant = 25 baht (25 copper coins) 
Dinner at the Oceanic Noise restaurant = 40 baht (40 copper coins) 
A sword = 500 baht (5 silver coins) 
Chakram x 20 = 2000 baht (20 silver coins) 
Magic potions x 5 = 1000 baht (10 silver coins) 
Antitode x 5 = 1000 baht (10 silver coins) 
Simple tent = 500 baht (5 silver coins) 
A Map of the western continent = 100 baht (1 silver coin) 
Backpack = 100 baht (1 silver coin) 
Inn hotel fee with breakfast = 100 baht (1 silver coin) 
----That is the amount of money he spent on his first day after being summoned. 
It becomes 6365 baht or 63 silver coins and 65 copper coins. 
Looking at this food price is very low. 
On the contrary, consumable goods such as magic potions and antidote are quite expensive. 
Looking at the explanation on the bottle, it seems like they are quite effective for injuries. 
They do not seem like the item that one use easily. 
(Though if this were a game, this item would be the cheapest item. eh...) 
But then, different from a game, in this world there's no continue if you're dead after all. 
With that in mind, it makes him not stingy at using the medicine. 
Given if we skip the investment in the equipment, and earn 200 baht (2 silver coins) a day then, one can have meals and stay at the Inn. 

(However, are they really going to come out on the highway? the monsters I mean...) 
Inside the guild beginner's guide that he read yesterday, other than how to receive a quest, and how to report, there's also the location of the wild dog and wild bee subjugation recorded in it. 
According to this, the monster will get stronger the further they are off from the highway. 
This time he received the wild dog quest; usually, they appear 5 minutes walking from the highway.  
Ryouma then left the highway and went toward the forest. 
There is a reason as to why Ryouma does this. 
He thought that it would be suspicious if he does it in such haste. 
Of course, there are a lot of people in a hurry passing the highway but. 
In a hurry = the empire found him.
Even if he didn't think of that, it would be much more safer if he is moving between town while doing subjugation quest. 
He went 5 minutes walk deep inside the forest. 
After entering the forest for a bit more, *woosh* such sounds can be heard. 
When he tried to take a look, five bugs are flying around 10 meters in front of him. 
The size of the bug is as big as a real dog, even though he thought of it as an insect. 
(Is that it?) 
It looks like an ordinary bee. 
However, the size is definitely different. The size is around 100 times more bigger than the normal bee. 
It seems that thing is field bee wild bi. 
According to the beginner's guide book, since the body is big, their movement is not that quick. 
However, it has a deadly poison, if he were to be stabbed five times, he would die. 
(Let's try to fight against it huh...) 
Ryouma took chakram from his waist bag and lowered his body taking an iai stance, with the right leg to the front, and then he twists his hips to the left side. 
Using the body like a bow, the chakram is being thrown with full power. 
*Fon* 
The chakram tears the wind making such sounds and flew toward the wild bi. 
*Zashu* 
And then. 
*Ka* 
Two sounds resounded in a row. 
However Ryouma ignoring it, he then immediately throws the second chakram, the third, then the fourth, and then the fifth successively. 
All the flying wild bees are falling on the ground. 
One has its torso being torn; there's also those that have it heads broken, there's also those who's unable to fly anymore due to their broken wing. 
Although the part where it hits differ, it seems like he's able to hit all of them on the first try. 
Ryouma pulls out his sword and approaches the wild bi. 
It seems like all of them are in critical condition. 
He then deals the final blow by crushing all the head of the wild bi that is still intact, and only its feather broke. 
(Hmm... now then...) 
He then takes out the beginner's guide book and read the part that he folded. 

-----------------------------【Procurement Material】 
After you subdued the monster, you have to dismantle the monster to secure the material. 
Monster's body have various uses such as to make a medicine, food, catalyst for magic, and others depend on the monster part. 
Do I have to get all of this item for the 【Request quest: Procurement category】? It seems possible to sell it to the magic item shop. 

In this book, it's written all the things that can be sold from the early map monster body. 

(Emm... the feather and the stinger...) 
For the time being, he cut apart the wild bi to take the stinger. 
(Uwah... this is around 5 centimeter I guess?...) 
As he tried to pull the feathers, Ryouma noticed around 3 of them had their feathers torn of having a hole on it. 
(That's bad. If I'm not mistaken...) 
He took the beginner's guide book in panic. 

--------------------------------------------------------------- 
Important notes: 
Since it's an item to sell, if the damage is too intense, sometimes they won't accept it. 
Please be careful. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Since it was for selling, then it's natural. 
However, with a life-threatening situation, it's not easy to keep an eye to the damage. 
If he were being greedy and then end up badly, he might be died, and he won't get any item either. 
(If this is a game, I just have to take the part that can be sold I guess...) 
Ryouma give up the feathers that have severe conditions, and plucked the relatively wound-free feathers. 
(Even though I manage to defeat them, I lost the battle?... I guess I should give up on money if it were getting dangerous huh?...) 

Ryouma realize the difficulty of a real hunting.

Record of Wortenia War - v1-c11

Chapter 1 E 11 - (Fleeing) 3



As promised, Ryouma went toward the oceanic noise restaurant. 
I need to report that my registration has been finished safely to the hostess. 

"Oh, it's you. Have you finished your registering?" 

The hostess asked joyfully while she put a glass of water in front of Ryouma that was guided by the counter. 

The time is already past 5 o'clock in the evening. 
The time is still early for dinner; however, not many customers come yet. 

"Yes. I'm glad I asked you beforehand." 

When Ryouma said so, a smile come upon her face. 

"Is that so! Then I'm glad. It is worth the effort that I had thought you then. By the way, what are you going to do? There's not much time had passed since lunch, no?" 

The hostess turns her eyes toward the clock hung on the wall and asked him. 

The time needed to register a bank account and work registration at the guild are not much. 
Only more than 1 hour had passed since then, Even though Ryouma can boast as a heavy eater, as expected, he cannot eat dinner 1 hour after he ate lunch. 

"Unn... as expected, I can't..." 

Ryouma makes vague words and rubbing his own stomach. 
In his abdomen, the fish still mischievously occupied his stomach full. 

"Well~, I guess so ne~." 

While nodding, the hostess paid attention to Ryouma attire. 
There might be some doubt on her about Ryouma appearance. 

"By the way you... Do you keep your luggage in the hotel?" 

"Eh? No..." 

"Eh? then are you going to go as adventurer just like that? What about your luggage? And how about your weapon?" 

There are often adventurers with nothing but clothes on their body. 
It is safer to relatively wear good armor and not leaving relatively expensive accessories at the inn to cope with an unexpected situation. 
Thus it was natural for the hostess to have some doubt regarding this. 

Ryouma then turn his own attention toward his body. 
He wore mantle over shirt and pants. One can say that it is very normal clothes. However, that is if he's someone from the downtown. 
"I see... I was planning to do it barehanded, but I guess I've failed huh... also, baggage huh... since it would take only half a day until next town, I thought that I don't need any preparation for the night... I guess, it's better for me to prepare huh?" 

"Ah... For the weapon, I intend to see it later. Originally I have not much of baggage, the quest that beginner can take is only until neighboring town, I thought this alone should be okay..." 

The hostess looked at him amazed although she somewhat also convinced by it. 

"Well, since you're still newcomer I guess that's reasonable huh~..." 

"Is it bad? 

Toward Ryouma words, the hostess leaked a sigh. 

"Being adventurer is very dangerous you know? what do you think the most common cause of death for an adventurer and mercenary?" 

"??" 

"The thing that usually killed a newcomer is being unpreparedness... indeed request quest for I rank is not hard. You might think that woman or child can do it. But you know, there's many unexpected things happen out there see? You must be prepared for the worst... if you don't want to die that is." 

Ryouma lost in thought. 
(I guess my mind still think that I'm living in Japan huh... Just like she said! I still have not known anything about this world. There's the thing with the pursuers, but, I also still don't know a thing about outside here... it was reasonable for the lady here to say that.) 

"I'm sorry. I guess, I do not yet have the right mental attitude." 

Ryouma lowered his head deeply toward the hostess. 

"Give it up. It's fine!... our restaurant makes a meal for the neighborhood residents during the day, but also for mercenaries and adventurers at night. That's why I've seen many adventurers... saying that they will become adventurers and leave, but, they never come back. Their reason is because it's nearby, thus no need to bring antidote, thanks to that they forgot to replenish the magic potion or something... it's very unbearable~~~..." 

The hostess wipes tears with her apron. 
Until now she has seen many adventurers. 
Because she had experience that she said those words, he can see that from her expression and it was obvious. 
Ryouma decided to prepare various thing, listening to her advice. 
(I still don't know anything. That's why I should listen to advice... this is a different place than earth after all.) 

"Then, I will prepare various thing first, since there's still time before dinner." 

The hostess expression brightens up hearing Ryouma words. 

"Is that so? ... Un! That's better! ... Do you know where the shop is? If it's second-hand magic shop, then it's on the main street near the guild earlier. You should buy magic potion there... if it's weapon smith then from this shop turn right then, you can just walk straight from here. The boss there if you said to him that the hostess of Oceanic Nois told you to come there, he will welcome you warmly." 

Ryouma left the store while being sent off by words that sound like coming from a mother. 
Buy a weapon to entrust one's life. 


"Oi, what do you want?" 

He found the weapon smith immediately that the Oceanic Nois hostess had recommended. 
The appearance was dirty, but the shop front was quite large. 
A big chimney is standing behind the shop, and black smoke was come out from there. 
When Ryouma entered the store and looking at the spears and swords that being displayed, the bearded old man who sat on the counter called Ryouma. 

"Emm. I want some moderate weapon." 

Ryouma words have no malice. 
Since there is weapon original of this store, I said a moderate weapon in the sense that I want to buy a weapon that I can handle. 
However, listening to Ryouma words, the complexion of the old-man changed. 

"The weapon I made, there's no such thing as a moderate weapon that already passed my judgment~~! Get out!" 

The old man angry voice resounded. 
Ryouma then answered desperately while being overwhelmed. 

"I-I'm sorry. The Oceanic Nois hostess is..." 

After saying that, the expression of the old man eased somewhat. 

"Oh... So you come here after being introduced by the hostess of the Oceanic Nois huh?" 

"Y- Yes!" 

"That means you're a beginner? Well... with that face, a beginner?" 

The old-man question him while looking doubtful. 
Well, Ryouma body is quite developed, and his face is also old. 
Thus it's normal for him not to believe it immediately, even if it was said that he was a rookie. 
However, Ryouma answered the old man words without feeling flustered. 
It was usual for him that someone doubted his age. 

"Indeed. I just registered at the guild earlier." 

Since Ryouma answered clearly, the old man believes him by nodding while crossing his arm. 
There were many traces of burns on his arm. 
He must owe those from the sparks that come out during weapons manufacturing. 
With that, it's shown that he's a skillful craftsman. 

"Is that so. Well, if that's the case there's no other choice. However, newcomer yo. I don't know about another store, but, don't use a moderate sword words in my store!" 

Ryouma hold the short sword displayed nearby. 

"Is it possibly that there are only a few people who make a weapon with forging technique?" 

The complexion of the old-man changed. 

"You! You can tell the difference!?" 

"Yes... To some degree that is..." 

Because of the forging technique, that requires striking the steel over and over again, which took out the impurity from it, this is why the blade edge looks more brilliant. 

"Is that so! Oh, this made me happy~. Nowadays blacksmiths adopt casting technique that can produce mass production see. I hate those adventurers who buy those weapons thinking that any weapon is fine! A weapon that being created just by pouring iron into a mold is not a good weapon!" 

Ryouma saw some pride from this old man. 
That's why, he shouted at Ryouma who wants some moderate handy weapon. 
(I see. This is the hostess recommendation. Certainly, the weapon is not bad. However) 
Ryouma acknowledged this old man ability; however, he now faced a new problem. 

"So, what do you want? A sword? or a spear?" 

That's right, here he can find sword, spear and even ax, but there's no Katana. 
(Damn it. As expected, there's no Katana...  oh well, I did not expect it much somehow, since this place has a western like atmosphere...) 

However, Ryouma asked the old man. 

"Is there a curved sword with a single edge?" 

The old man lost in thought. 

"A single edge curved sword... by any chance, are you speaking about Katana?" 

"It exists?!" 

Ryouma was quite surprised. 
Since the town is very western style, and the weapon also double edge and, the use of halberd is also quite western like. 

"No. My bad, but, this shop does not have it." 

The old-man continue his talk. 

"Although I know a bit about it. It is a weapon that's being used at East continent see. Since a quite special practice needed to handle the weapon, it was not exported much." 

"I see..." 

"If somewhere were to have it then, you might find it at the eastern market port town Furuzado." 

"Port town Furuzado is it?" 

"It is the best trading city in the western continent. If it's there, then you can also find eastern continent item via the central continent." 

Ryouma to be honest feel troubled. 
(Since there's no Katana, so I have to use sword huh? But using the sword is hard after all. If that is the case, should I use the spear? No... if I were to use it on the suburb, then it's fine, but it would be hard if I were to use it in the downtown. Ax... should I use an ax? I have no problem with an ax but...) 
To use an unfamiliar weapon is nothing but exposing one's life to danger. 

"You. You feel like the normal weapon is a no good huh... alright! If that is the case, I will show you my collection. If you can use something in there, then you can take it!" 

"Eh?" 

"Well... It is the things that have passed my judgment, which some are the things that adventurers bring in, it is wonderful as a work, but it is something which is difficult to handle and does not popular among ordinary visitors. There's also things that I was unable to understand how to handle. Those weapons, I collect them as my collection! I know some Katana. Among my collection, there might be one or two that usable for you. If there is one, then, I will hand it over to you!" 

As he said that, the old man led Ryouma through the stairs behind the counter leading toward the basement. 


A steel door is waiting at the place where he went. 
He took a key from his pants then unlocked the door. 

"Now enter. Whether or not if there's something that will satisfy you." 

At the time they first meet, the old man called him a newcomer, but before one knows, the old man already called him you. 
(I guess he already acknowledges me to some degree huh..." 
Around the time when he told the old man, he can see the difference. 
It seems like an artisans are more friendly to customers who can accept their work. 
The room that the old man shows is quite wide. 
Inside the room around 30 tatamis wide, there are many shelves lined up. 

"The shelf from the right filled with a sword, then beside it spears, axes, bows, and so on. This all are a masterpiece. Weapons that choose its masters. Befitting their master." 

As he said that, the old man brought Ryouma to the most left shelves. 

"What I want to show you is, this..." 

As the old man told him, Ryouma turned toward the items on the shelf. 
The first thing that appears is a wooden tonfa, following it, there's a nunchaku; Moreover, there's also a gabishi weapon. 
A chakram and baton also there. 
(What is this... why such unique things...) 

"How is it?" 

I shook my head to the old man question. 

"Too unique huh..." 

"As expected... do you not know how to use it?" 

Ryouma shook his head. 

"If it's only using it then, I can... but I've never practiced using them." 

Ryouma then hold the tonfa with his hands. 
*Fon* 
The tonfa sharply turns and cuts the wind. 

"Oi oi. So, it's still no good?" 

The old man asked Ryouma while looking at him interested. 
Ryouma put back the tonfa and said. 

"No good. I know the basic use of it, but the application is ineffective since this is not suitable for one vs. many battles. I can't use it for a real fight." 

Listening to Ryouma answer, the old man asked. 

"You... you're not your ordinary newcomer huh? This is the first time I meet someone like you. I thought you're just a mere amateur. However, how you talk is not something normal..." 

"Oh please old man... I'm really just a beginner you know. It is only because my father brought me to many please; thus I gather a lot of knowledge." 

Ryouma answered while smiled wryly/ 

"Is that so... well that's fine. So, how is it?" 

He seems not to have convinced, however, the old man urged Ryouma to decide a weapon. 

"U~n..." 

Ryouma advancing toward the inside while replying vaguely. 
(I don't mean it that it was unusable for me. But I thought that using something too unique will stand out as well...) 
Each weapon has an advantage. 
However, training is necessary to bring out the advantage. 
And furthermore, a unique shape attract the public eye. 
And Ryouma thought he does not want to draw attention when he has some pursuers. 

"Oh!" 

And Ryouma who arrived at the edge saw a certain article. 
It is a chain with a weight on both sides. 
The length is approximately around 80 cm? The chains are thin; thus it can be hidden under the clothes. 

"Is it this fellow? There's a saying that this is something that an another worlder bring, but, what do you think about this chains?" 

Ryouma answered while the old man looked at the chains on Ryouma hands. 

"Otherworlder?!" 

"Indeed. The things on this shelf are the things that are said to be brought by another worlder." 

He was wondering as to why the culture of east and west were being mixed so much, Ryouma now understand after listening to the old man story. 
It is because they summoned various race at random since a long time ago. 
(I see! So that's why the culture seems high in certain thing yet low in a certain area!) 
In other words, they only use the knowledge that can be utilized in this world from the knowledge of summoned human has. 
The bank card is a good example. 
Perhaps it's because a summoned person from the modern era applied a banking network in this world. 
Although without PC for Ryouma, it's impossible for him to understand how they implement it, but, there's no mistake. 
On the contrary, some people use parchment paper, is it because there are only a few individuals with technique to make paper? Or because the number of manual labor is not sufficient? Is the paper expensive? 
In other words, some part of the culture in this world is high, and since they don't have the knowledge, thus the thing that they cannot implement is still medieval. 
The old man starts talking to Ryouma who's in deep thought. 

"What's wrong?" 

The old man looked at Ryouma face suspiciously. 

"Ah! No... I just have a bit of concern..." 

Ryouma took the chain to hide his thoughts. 
(It is not bad... since I've learned how to use manrikigusari from grandfather. This is not bad as a hidden weapon However...) 
There's no meaning hiding a weapon in this world. 
Because one can carry swords or spears and walk on the main street normally here. 
After thinking hard, Ryouma choose the chakram as a throwing weapon. 
It has a 5-centimeter diameter and the edge are sharp. 
One can imagine it easily by imagining a CD with a sharp edge. 
There are four reasons why I choose this guy. 
1. It's easy to throw since this guy has a circular shape. 
2. I can use iai stance as throwing method. 
3. Because the whole surface is a blade, it has a high killing ability rather than throwing a knife. 
4. And I can sufficiently use it as shuriken. 

Ryouma then took 20 pieces of it 

"Old man. Please give me this guy and a sword." 

The old man looked at me surprised. 

"I thought you don't like the sword?" 

"Well. Because tomorrow I need to do a quest first of all, after all." 

"Is that so... It can't be helped if you're in a hurry huh. I will choose something that you can use with one hand." 

"Thank you very much." 


Ryouma lowered his head calmly.

Record of Wortenia War - v1-c10

TLN: I'm sorry because I need to check+try something, I didn't post a chapter yesterday, as compensation today we have 2 chapters.

Chapter 1 E 10 (Fleeing) 2


"Here you go!" 

A hostess put two large mugs on Ryouma table. 
Then she pours the drink with amber looking liquid until the bubbles spilled to the black table. 

"... I didn't order for this, but?" 

Ryouma alternately looking at the mug filled with beer and the hostess. 

"It's on the house! Please drink it!" 

Saying that the hostess sits down on one of the chairs. 

"I've never seen your face around here before, are you traveling person?" 

She talks with a friendly tone toward Ryouma. 

"Are you on break?" 

Ryouma asked the hostess who has sat down on the chair. 

"Look around? there's only you here." 

Toward the hostess words, Ryouma looking around the restaurant, and turn out, he's the only customer left. 
When Ryouma entered the restaurant there were still several visitors, it seems they already go back home. 

"It's the time you see. We finish lunch at 3:00. Since you come at 2.58, the restaurant is not yet closed." 

Saying that the hostess mischievously shakes one of the mugs in front of him. 

"Though the kitchen staff already take a break since a while ago, there's still cleaning to be done. Nonetheless, to say, It would be boring to stand alone until you finished eating see. Thus, keep company this aunty for a bit. And, this drink is the payment for that." 

After saying that, she pushes the mugs toward Ryouma. 

"Is that so? I'm very sorry. For causing the trouble." 

"Don't mind it, don't mind it~. So? are you a traveler?" 

The tone of the hostess is very frank and smooth. And one can see that she's also a talkative person. 
(Well there's no harm. Since there's a lot of things that I want to know too.) 
Ryouma decide to talk about his personal history for a bit. Because what he needed the most was information. 

"Indeed. That's right. This is the first time I come here..." 

'He~, so you came to the Ortomea imperial capital for the first time eh? You're alone?" 

"No. I came here with my father... and the other day, my father died cause of disease..." 

Saying that Ryouma lower her head. 
The hostess must be thinking that she had just heard something unpleasant. Then she said it in a hurry. 

"Ah~. I've asked something wrong ne~...." 

Ryouma raised his head while smiling. 

"No. There's no helping it for his illness." 

"Is that so?... So it was an illness huh... then you, what are you going to do now? Going back to your hometown?" 

"I think I will live in the imperial capital. Since I've traveled with my father here and there, I would like to settle down in this neighborhood." 

(Here it is, the main subject. I have to speak carefully so that she won't think of me as someone suspicious.) 
Ryouma waited for a chance to hear the information he wanted to hear patiently. Since he knows that, if he were to be too impatient, it would only incur the hostess suspicion. 

The hostess seems to believe Ryouma story entirely. Since originally a good person won't doubt others people origins; besides, Ryouma story sounds very believable. 

"Is that so. So, where are you going to live?" 

(Here it comes!) 
Ryouma is pleased that the topic he had waited have come 
First, I have to work to live. However, for Ryouma who had come from another world, he doesn't know if he could get a job here or not. 
Furthermore, if he did not listen properly to the general common sense and information, it will cause suspicion along the road. 
And since he exposes his face, Ryouma also worried that his face might fall into the empire hands if he does a bad job here. 

"About that... to say honestly, up until now I've been helping my father's work, so in particular, I can't do anything much... at most I can use the sword to some degree." 

"I see. Well~ in the case with your age~ you're too young to become a craftsman and a merchant would be difficult to do~." 

The hostess nodded her head while looking at Ryouma face. 

"I can't be a merchant?" 

"I don't say you can't, but I think it would be difficult you know? It is a job that you need to train since childhood see~." 

"Is that so?... Wah, this is bad huh..." 

Ryouma pretends to feel down. 

"You... You said you can use the sword? Then why not try being mercenaries or adventurers~?" 

"Oh, I can?... but, how am I supposed to do to become one of those?" 

"What's this? you don't know??" 

"Indeed. I don't know much about the detail, if you don't mind, can you tell me about it?" 

Ryouma polite tone makes the other ease their wariness toward him, and make them think that they should help him. 
In fact, in term of courtesy, the hostess will at least answer it no matter who had asked. 

"Though it's not really that detailed. At least I can grasp some part of it since sometimes adventurers and mercenaries come here to drink, is that alright?" 

"By all means, please do tell me about it." 

Saying that, Ryouma lowered his head. 

"I-It's not something that great. You just have to go to the respective guild and register, then it's done." 

"Huh? I heard that they need a background check and other necessities, though?" 

This is the thing that Ryouma worried about. 
Ryouma who had come from another world, have nothing like family registry or someone who can guarantee his identity. If that is needed, to be honest, he has no way out of it. 
It would be straight line to become a highway robber. 
However, The answer of the hostess is quite simple. 

"You don't need a guarantor or proof of identity to become an adventurer. The one who needs those is, being a merchant, craftsman, and also a soldier. 
Ne~... If you want to register at the guild alone, you can do it over there." 

Ryouma then shows smile on his whole face. 
It seems like he can find job at least. 

"Really!? I'm glad that you told me all these~. I thought they would need identity guarantee! Turn out it was just misunderstood in my part eh..." 

Ryouma said so while energetically drinks the ale inside the large mugs. 

"You must be mistaking them when they talk about becoming merchant or something else. By the way, the guild location is, outside of this restaurant, you go toward the left side heading to the main street, and you will found it immediately." 

"Thank you very much! Ma'am. I will head toward that please immediately." 

"Is that so? then do come for dinner and report to me later alright?" 

"Sure!  well then, the bill please." 

"Sure! 1 person portion serving for menu A is 25 bahts." 

Hearing that Ryouma hardened. It's not because he does not have any money. It's about something different... 
(Damn it. I still don't know the value of the money...) 
A while before when I buy the clothes, I came through by letting the girl take the money back in excuse of leaving quickly, but here, I can't use the same method. 
Since there's no other choice, Ryouma took one gold coin which seems to be the most valuable on the table. 

"W-Wait you. Even if you took out 10.00 baht, there wouldn't be any change..." 

Seeing gold coin on the table, the hostess look amazed. 

"Do you not have any 100 baht silver coin?" 

(Alright... I found the value of the money.) 
one piece of Gold coin is ten thousand baht. 
One silver coin is a hundred baht. 
(Does that mean, one piece of copper is 1 baht?) 

"Ah... I'm very sorry. Please wait a moment." 

Pretending to be in a hurry he took another money bag from his pocket. 

"I probably put it in this one... 25 copper coins right?" 

"That's right. 25 baht." 

"Ah! Here it is... I'm very sorry. I've put my small change here." 

He put the 25 copper coins on the table while glossing it over. 

"Alright! Thank you very much for your patronage." 

While the hostess put the copper coins on her apron, she asked Ryouma. 

"You, you don't have a card? since we can use card here, please use that next time." 

(Card? Does she mean Credit Card?) 
He could not say that he don't know anything about that; thus Ryouma made up a story matching up with the hostess. 

"Ah well about that~ the truth is I lost the card see... but since I hold some cash, I think I won't feel troubled for a while..." 

"Oh? I see, so that's what had happened. Well~ I guess because the depositor is the only one that can use the money it is safe, but, sometimes it's inconvenient. How about reissuing it? There are banks near the guilds you know?" 

(As expected, a bank huh? Or rather, really? A bank? in this world?) 
Since Ryouma thought that it would be a waste without asking back, he asks the hostess a question. 

"Do reissuing it not need any family identity proof?" 

"You don't need it you know? If you make it at the same time making bank account application, you will only require personal information." 

"Oh~. Is that how it is? I don't know that... Thank you very much!" 

After that being said, Ryouma lowered his head toward the hostess. 

"Don't mind it, don't mind it! Please it here again later." 

As she went off, Ryouma then left the restaurant and walked toward the main street. 
"First, I need to go to the bank!" 


He follows the direction that the hostess had told him about, then he saw a sign of money being stacked on the left side of the road, and he also saw a sign with a picture of a soldier wearing armor. 
(Such an easy to understand signboard huh... to think they use a picture.) 
Ryouma went toward the bank while thinking such a thing. 
Honestly speaking, it's quite heavy to carry seven bags of coins. 
Especially when there are some pursuers, thus he wants to be a bit light. 
That's being the case, Ryouma went toward the bank before heading to the adventurer guilds. 

"Welcome. What kind of business do you have today?" 

A middle-aged man from the lobby spoke toward Ryouma after he passed through the bank entrance. 
The receptionist is exactly like a bank in Japan. 
Black suits with white shirt. And a red necktie hangs on his neck. 
(Suit? why is he wearing a suit?) 
Ryouma did not understand this world for some reason. 
If we think about how this world looks like medieval Europe, this place looks very modernistic. Such thing as, suits, and card as well. 
(I thought I went to a different place, to think it would be this similar... I can only admire them...) 

"Emm?... Excuse me?" 

The man called Ryouma after looking at his face that seems to be flustered. 

"Oh, I'm sorry. It was my first time to come to this place... I'm thinking of making an account." 

The man nodded toward Ryouma then led him. 

"It's this reception, sir." 

"Thank you very much." 

"This person wish to open an account. I'll leave the rest to you alright." 

After saying that toward the woman receptionist, the man left the place. 

"Welcome. you wish to open an account yes?" 

Navy blue jacket and red ribbon. A woman wearing her uniform sit down on the counter. 
Such your ordinary receptionist. 
This kind of scene won't surprise me if only if this place is not another world.

"Yes. Because this is my first time, I don't know very much about the procedure..." 

For Ryouma, the good point is that he can just listen obediently for the things he doesn't understand. 
Rather than pretending to know, this is much safer. 

"Certainly. Excuse me, but, please fill in your name." 

Then she handed him the parchment and the pen. 
(Why parchment?) 
Ryouma suppressed the question that welled up inside of him while receiving the pen and minutes. 

Name = Mikoshiba Ryouma 
Age = 16 

There's no address column and other entry, it only needs name and age. 
After being unconsciously writing his name and age, Ryouma returned the parchment toward the receptionist. 
(Huh? The letters... it's Japanese right? do those letters common here?) 
However, contrary to Ryouma confusion, the receptionist worked on it without minding anything. 
At least, it seems like he can communicate using Japanese. 

"Name is Mikoshiba Ryouma. Age is... 1.... 6? Did you make a mistake here?" 

The receptionist gazed at Ryouma face. She probably did not see Ryouma as a 16 years old. 
She gazed at Ryouma suspiciously. 

"Indeed. As you can see, but?" 

I can guess that she would surprise when he told them her age. 
(After all, I have such old-looking face...) 

"Or is there possibly, one can't make make an account if their age still 16?" 

She shakes her head toward Ryouma question. 

"No... There's no problem with age. Emm... since dear customer is very calm, I was surprised to see the age written here. I'm very sorry. " 

"Oh. It's alright. Since I'm used to it already. Then please establish the account." 

"Certainly. Please wait a moment as we will make the card." 

After saying that, she write down something on a card as big as a business card. 
After that, she presses the card between two transparent plates. 
(Lamination processing??) 
He really can't decide if this world standard is high or low. 

"I'm sorry to have kept you waiting. Please put your hands on this sphere." 

The card is being inserted inside the glass ball, then Ryouma being asked to touch it. 

"Like this?" 

When Ryouma put his hand on the glass ball, the ball begins to shine. 

"Yes. Thank you. With this Mikoshiba-sama information is already registered. You could make it again in the future if you lost it by coming to the nearest bank." 

While saying such thing, she handed the card to Ryouma. 

"Is it done already?" 

"Yes. The procedure for opening an account is over. Is there anything else I can do for you?" 

"Then... I want to deposit my money to the account but." 

"Depositing money is it. Thank you very much. Please put the money that you wish to deposit and also your account card." 

Saying that, she put a tray on the counter. 
Ryouma thus pick 10 gold coins, 20 silver coin and 50 copper coin from the bag, then he put the rest on the tray. 

"Thank you, we will check the amount now. Please wait for it a minutes." 

She then takes all the money out from the bag, and stack 10 of it per type. 
(You're going to count it by hand huh...) 
Even thought card such as this exist, it seems like a money counting machine did not exist. 
She keeps counting the money despite Ryouma lament. 

He waited for around 20 minute. 
She finished after three times of counting it. 

"I'm sorry to have kept you waiting. After counting all of it, there are 23 gold coins, 58 silver coins, and 731 copper coins, the total sum of the deposit is 236.531 baht. Is there anything wrong with the amount of money?" 

(Lunch at the Oceanic Nois is 25 baht per serving right? for now there's no problem I guess.) 
For a while, I won't seems to have any trouble with inn and meal fee either. 

"Indeed. This is good." 

"Certainly. Then 236.531 baht. We officially confirm it." 

Then she returns the card to Ryouma and lowers her head afterward. 


Though he feels like he has a good living expense, but by the end of it, he won't be able to live if he did not work. 
Ryouma left the bank and went toward the guild next. 
There are several counters where the receptionist sitting behind it. 
Ryouma then sit down on one of the vacant counters. 

"Welcome. What can I do for you, sir?" 

The receptionist responded. 

"I would like to register as an adventurer, and also introduce me their work." 

"I understand. Excuse me, but, do you have a bank account?" 

"Is this alright?" 

Ryouma then hand her the card he just made. 

"Yes. This is enough. Recently, the payment of rewards are being done via card, and those who newly registered will be required to prepare an account in advance." 

"He~. Is that how it is? That close, I heard that you don't need to prepare anything." 

"Indeed. There are a lot of them who came here without it. At that time, I would ask them to come again after making it." 

After saying that, she put the card in the opening that opened on the glass ball base. 

" Here we go, the registration is complete. Mikoshiba-san" 

"Eh?" 

We can share the information from the bank and the information on the guild. Therefore, if one have the bank card, then I can just use it to read the information from it then finished." 

While saying that, she took out a bunch of paper and began looking at it. 

"Emm, can you receive group mission?" 

"Yes." 

Ryouma nodded. 

"Do you know the guild system?" 

Ryouma shook his neck. 

"Then~, I'll explain it alright. Please do ask if there's something that you want to ask." 

Saying that she took a paper and put it in front of Ryouma. 

"The initial level after registration in the guild is Lvl 1. The guild rank, a single I is the lowest rank. The rank is shown on the surface of the card. Please do take care of it, because it also serves as your identity as an adventurer." 

She pointed toward the very bottom letter, a single I. 

"Simply Lvl is a rank that the Guild bestows to the adventurer based on their battle experience. By the way, a battle experience is about how much power that you took from other creature. Do you know about the absorbing power?" 

"Yes. When you kill other creatures, some part of their power will be yours, right?" 

"Indeed, just like what you say. Level 1 is the average power of human being, and when it reaches level 10, then it's 10 times of that. There is not much relation for an adventurer, but if you do mercenaries work, this will raise and lower your salaries. " 

"I see~. If I'm a level 10 then is that mean I can get 10 times more salaries?" 

Well~ basically like that. Next is guild rank, this rank will go up by accumulating your achievement point from each quest you succeeded in doing it. The higher your rank is, the better request quest will be given to you. You may undertake job according to your rank or 1 rank bellow you." 

Ryouma took notice of the notes written on the paper. 

"This instruction is?" 

"Yes. You may accept any number of quests at once, but the requested quest has a due date. If you exceed the period, then you have to pay indemnities, and the achievement point will go down. 

"Does rank will also fall?" 

"Indeed. Rank will go up every time you accumulate 100 achievement point. In the case of Mikoshiba-San case, the order will be from I to H. The rank will fall to I again if you failed on doing a quest and the achievement point is down more than 100 points. However..." 

Her finger pointed to one of the columns on the paper. 

"If the quest has a different or defect achievement requirement then even if the person who undertook the quest were unable to finish it, the indemnity doesn't occur. Depending on the situation, one can request compensation from the client. In such case, you may contact the guild, and we will take care of it." 

(This feels like a temporary employee agency...) 

"That above is all the explanation. Is there anything that you're unable to understand?" 

"No." 

Ryouma shook his head. 

"Then, I will choose Mikoshiba-San first job alright~." 

She took out a bundle of documents again then put it before Ryouma. 
On top of the paper, there's a single I rank, in which, under that, there are a lot of jobs registered. 

"Emm. What kind of request quest does Mikoshiba-san like to do? Adventurer job? Or a Mercenary job?" 

"Both is fine..." 

(I feel like receiving an interview...) 
Ryouma remembered the recommendation interview he received at the time of his high school examinations. 
If this is just like the future plan they asked back then, then he thought that this is kind of the same. 

"U~nn. If you have confidence in your fighting capability, then the mercenary job would be good I think?" 

Saying that, then she began to make a red circle in several columns written on there. 

"The thing that I've circled, the primary job is that of fighting alright? Such as wild dog subjugation or wild bee subjugation. There is no time period, by the end of the report, you need to subjugate the X marks, and the reward is 3 copper coin. The achievement point of clearing it is 1 point." 

Ryouma then thought of something. 
Is there a work where I can also go to another city? For example, escorting someone or deliver something. 

"Is there work where I also can go to another town?" 

"Deliver item category is it~. There's none for escort category~." 

She shakes her neck. 

"Because the escorting category is directly related to the client's life, we will only give it to someone who has at least some level of ability. in rank, that would be around rank C or above." 

"Then if it's delivery category, is there something that delivered to oversee?" 

"Hmm... with I rank, long distance delivery is impossible. You may only take a delivery quest to the next town at most." 

Unlike a game, there seems to be restriction here and there. 
Ryouma then looked at the map stuck behind her. 

"By the way, is there quest to the other side if I'm looking at the other town?" 

"Probably yes? If it's a delivery quest that is..." 

"Emm, may I borrow some map.?" 

"The receptionist gave a strange face; however, she pulled out a folded map from the drawer and spread it on the counter. 

"Emm... Ortomea, which one is it?" 

"Here is imperial capital Ortomea." 

Her finger pointed at a big mark on the center near the southern border of the map. It has the description of Ortomea Imperial Capital with thick letters. 
Furthermore, there's a thick red line enclosing the imperial capital mark. 
I guess this is the border of Ortomea Empire huh. This is considerably wide. 
(Garik Melferen. Gildas Oitto... if I were to go out from here, it is these four huh...) 
Ryouma eyes looked at the four towns. Both are a town that can be regarded as suburbs of the imperial capital. 

"Then is there any delivery work toward Melferen?" 

Upon Ryouma question, the receptionist began to look at the bundle of documents again. 

"Please wait for a moment... emm. This one, the rank is not enough... this one already being picked up... emm... Ah! There is a letter delivery. The reward is 30 copper coin. The achievement point will be 5 points." 

There is not much of work Ryouma can take as a rookie. Furthermore, he decides the town by himself. Work is not something that will come conveniently after all; furthermore, there might be someone who already undertook it as well. 
However, Ryouma is lucky. 
The receptionist-san who finished looking at every corner of a bunch of documents, looking at Ryouma full of smiles. 

"Then I will take it please." 

Ryouma immediately receives that quest. 
In this kind of situation, being decisive is important. There's no time to hesitate. 

"Sure. Then please take this." 

She then writes something on a board that is connected to the ball glass stand. Then the glass ball twinkled. 

 "Here we go. It's completed, The deadline is within 3 days. The quest will end when you are successed at sending the letter to Melferen guild. Do you wish to accept another quest?" 

"Ten, I would like to accept the subjugation quest from a while ago." 

"Sure. Wild dog subjugation and the field bee wild bi subjugation, and the subjugation of wild rabbit, right. Since there's no deadline, please do report to the guild when you finished." 

"Understood." 

"Ah right. Though it might be late for me to saying this, if there's no specific designation of the requested quest then you may report it at any guild. Well then, please do your best ne~." 

After receptionist-san smiles toward Ryouma, she lowered her head toward him. 

"Yes. Thank you very much." 

Ryouma lowers his head lightly and leave the guild 


There's a reason why Ryouma accepts those request quest. 
He's being chased by the Empire. Thus he wants to go out of the country as soon as possible. 
However, there's a problem. 
If we take the pursuers into consideration then, there's a danger hanging around while moving between town. Therefore I need some pretext. 
A pretext to walk along the highway. 
In that respect, the job of delivering a letter is a great thing. 
And there's a reason why he took quest toward Melferen located in the east. 
According to the map, he saw earlier, the imperial city is located in the southeast. In other words, it would take a considerable amount of time for him to go toward a national border located in the west and north. 
The closest border from this imperial city would be to the south, however, based on his prediction; the pursuers might also go there. 
Thus by thinking about it in various ways, the safest bet he can go would be toward the east. 

Of course, it is unknown if this judgment is correct or not unless he goes and see it himself... 


TLN: I'm trying to make a jump link/anchor note yesterday... but always failed...so I give up huff...
This is why the chapters are late, and I didn't put any(deleted) TLN on pages...I realize some(maybe actually a lot) of people don't want me to put TLN in the middle of a page.
