WM – Chapter 112: Takatsuki Makoto meets the Goblin King

“Please help me! My daughter! She has been kidnapped by goblins!” 

That elderly man ran to me with a ghastly expression.

“Uhm…can you tell me in more detail?” (Makoto)

“Ooh…you are the one famous in goblin subjugations?! My daughter! My daughter has…” 

The guy was in such an agitated state as he grabbed onto me and explained…

-The man and his daughter are merchants of the neighboring town.

-Last night, a horde of goblins kidnapped his daughter.

-The goblins were moving as if there was someone in command, so there’s apparently a leader within those goblins.

-His daughter has a magic item called Impregnable Barrier.

-When the barrier is activated, goblins can’t put a hand on her.

-The barrier can stay activated for half a day.

-In around 1 more hour, the barrier will run out. When that happens…

“Uuuh…if the barrier runs out, my daughter will be prey for the goblins…Aaahh!” 

“Oji-san, you came from the neighboring town, right? Why didn’t you rely on the Adventurer Guild of your town?” (Mary)

Mary-san came and calmed down the man as she asked for details.

That’s a relief. Truly a guild staff member, she is skilled in this.

Or more like, she drank so much yesterday, yet she seems totally fine.

“That’s…it was late and there wasn’t any adventurer that could take action… I heard that there’s a person famous for goblin subjugations in Makkaren from a guild staff member, and that it would be safer to ask him…” 

“Haah…I see. And that’s why you came to Makoto-kun.” (Mary)

Mary-san nods as if convinced.

“Well then, Makoto-kun is a Hero, so it will take 1,000,000G plus the request fee…” (Mary)

““1,000,000?!””

The man and I raise shouts of surprise at the same time.

“Eh…I heard he was a famous goblin subjugator, but…the H-Hero-sama?” 

“Uhm, I became a Hero recently…” (Makoto)

“W-What…I have been rude…”

“No no, more importantly, if your daughter has been kidnapped, we have to hurry.” (Makoto)

The requester suddenly turned respectful.

“…But to think you were a Hero-sama. That kind of money…there’s no way I can pay it.” 

The requester-san groans with a face on the verge of tears.

He came all the way from the neighboring town, and yet, he is faced with this. That must be too much to take.

“Mary-san, can’t it be cheaper?” (Makoto)

“Hmm, when you designate an adventurer higher than Silver Rank, the nomination fee takes effect. This is so that requests don’t get concentrated on skilled adventurers. Also, it is so that we can provide good lodgings and equipment for the high ranked adventurers…” (Mary)

“Mary-san~.” (Makoto)

“I get it, Makoto-kun. Hey, requesteer-san. You can pay in installments.” (Mary)

Eeh, you still have to pay that?

Well, this is a guild rule, so it can’t be ignored, huh.

“Please tell me where your daughter has been taken to.” (Makoto)

“O-Okay…it is a cave west from here and…” 

I get the details, but he must have run away in a pretty flustered manner from the goblins, he doesn’t have a clear idea of the place.

“With such vague information…” (Mary)

Mary-san’s expression darkens.

Hmm, but I have the location of all the caves in the area here inside my head.

“Oji-san, was the ceiling of that cave low? Were there two holes lined up next to each other? Was there a large tree nearby?” (Makoto)

“If I remember correctly…there’s only one entrance, and it was a small cave.” 

“Got it.” (Makoto)

Must be there.

“M-Makoto-kun, you can tell the location with just that much information?” (Mary)

“I know all the locations in this area where goblins show up.” (Makoto)

But there was no goblin nest a few months ago in that cave.

Did they come from the Demonic Forest?

“Mary-san, I’m going. Can you tell the place to Lucy and Sa-san?” (Makoto)

“Got it!” (Mary)

I marked the place on the map and gave it to Mary-san, and then rushed out of the guild.

“Hey, my knight, where are you going?” 

Someone called me right after coming out of the guild.

“Princess?” (Makoto)

Furiae-san walks towards me.

“Where’s Lucy and Sa-san?” (Makoto)

“They said they drank too much and their heads hurt.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san tilts her head cutely as she answers.

“Haah, I see.” (Makoto)

It would have been faster with them along.

“Last night was fun. It was my first time talking about love stories with girls around my age.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san was in a good mood.

“Sorry, I am in a hurry right now. Stay at the guild with Mary-san or wait for me at the inn with Lucy and Sa-san please.” (Makoto)

I tell this to her while running, but…

“What are you saying? You are my Guardian Knight, right? I will go with you.” (Furiae)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

What is she saying?! 

“I am going to a goblin nest! I am going to go save a kidnapped person, so it is dangerous! Just wait for me!” (Makoto)

“Adventure? It is an adventure, right?! I am interested!” (Furiae)

Why are you getting excited?

Aah, then, I will leave you in the dust with my dash.

“Hey, my knight, can’t you run faster?” (Furiae)

…She passed me as if nothing.

Furiae-san runs faster than me?!

Right, I did lose against her in the Sun Country’s graveyard…

At this rate, I feel like she is gonna follow me wherever I go.

“Aah! Fine. Let’s go together.” (Makoto)

“Kyah!” (Furiae)

I grab the hand of Furiae-san and jump onto the waterway.

Water Magic: Water Walk and Water Dragon.

“Wah, this is an interesting magic.” (Furiae)

“We are going fast, so try not to bite your tongue.” (Makoto)

We accelerate on the water surface in an instant.

◇◇

We followed the path of the waterway that leads to a river, and arrived close to the Great Forest. 

There’s trees growing thickly here, and it is slightly dark.

We will be going on foot from here.

“Princess, can you use Stealth?” (Makoto)

“No problem. I am the woman that is wanted in the Sun Country and has been running away all the time, you know?” (Furiae)

That’s a reliable answer.

Not Oracle-like though.

Furiae-san and I advance through the forest slowly.

Our conversations were done in a low voice.

{Hey, we are going against goblins, right? There’s no need to be all stealthy, right?} (Furiae)

{I am the cautious player type.} (Makoto)

{I see. By the way, I heard from the Mage-san and the Warrior-san yesterday, but…} (Furaie)

The girl gathering yesterday must have been fun for Furiae-san, she doesn’t stop talking.

There’s no sense of tension from her…

{Those two normally get along with each other, but when it comes to talking about the guy they love…} (Furiae)

Hm?

{Ah, I shouldn’t be saying that.} (Furiae)

I ended up turning my head.

Furiae-san went ‘teehee’ and stuck out her tongue.

Wait! 

Don’t just stop the conversation there.

{Tell me in more detail…} (Makoto)

{Now now, turn around. The cave is in sight now.} (Furiae)

This girl…

It is bothering me now!

I put Clear Mind at MAX and moved forward.

I hide at the shadow of a tree that’s right before the cave, and observe.

{5 goblins on watch right in front of the cave, huh.} (Makoto)

{How about defeating them immediately?} (Furiae)

She says as if it is so simple.

{A nest is dangerous.} (Makoto)

{Really?} (Furaie)

I experienced that many times when I went solo.

I thought defeating all the goblins in a nest at once would be efficient, but if I make a careless move, I end up getting counterattacked by a mob of them.

There’s even the chance that there’s a higher class of goblin inside the nest.

And so, I learned that being a pseudo assassin in the Demonic Forest that has thick fog was the safest play.

{It would be a different story if we had the long distance firepower of Lucy or the overwhelming physical power of Sa-san though.} (Makoto)

I don’t have either.

I have no choice but to defeat one at a time.

But I don’t know how long the daughter’s barrier will last…

If possible, I don’t want to take time.

Hmm, what to do?

I came here on my own due to the flow of events, but maybe I should have met with Lucy and Sa-san.

Wait…

{Princess, you are a specialist in curse magic, right?} (Makoto)

{Yeah, what about it…?} (Furiae)

I have a good idea.

◇◇

“…Is this an adventure?” (Furiae)

“It is. I won’t allow you to say otherwise.” (Makoto)

There’s a thick fog around the whole area.

Moon Magic: Sleep Curse.

“That’s quite the handy spell.” (Makoto)

I held the hand of Furiae-san and used sync.

I used water magic to create mist, and mixed curse magic to it.

Thanks to the Sleep Curse, all the goblins on watch have fallen asleep.

“The goblins won’t suddenly wake up?” (Makoto)

“They will probably stay asleep for a whole day.” (Furiae)

Princess Furiae says nonchalantly.

…This could be useful.

“Then, I will go search for the captured girl inside the cave, so Princess, you stay hidden somewhere.” (Makoto)

“That’s boring.” (Furiae)

Looks like Furiae-san doesn’t like that I used a crafty method.

I am an Apprentice Mage, you know?

I would lose in physical combat against several goblins.

I used [Detection] just in case as I entered the cave.

The Sleep Curse mist seems to be working inside the cave too.

I advance carefully with Stealth so to not wake up the sleeping goblins.

There’s around 10 goblins sleeping inside the cave.

(There’s fewer than I thought.) (Makoto)

And…

(There.) (Makoto)

Deep in the cave, inside a cage, there’s a girl collapsed on the floor.

The girl was covered by a dimly shining egg-shaped barrier. 

Looks like they carried her here with barrier and all.

I approach her and check her state.

Her face is a mess with tears, but it looks like there’s no external wounds.

I knock the barrier.

The girl doesn’t wake up.

(Damn…the curse of Furiae-san also affected her.) (Makoto)

Because of the barrier, I can’t carry her on my own.

I don’t have a barrier breaking spell…

I tried cutting the barrier with the dagger of the Goddess just in case.

The blade passes through it like cutting through butter.

(Oi oi, this is impressive.) (Makoto)

The dagger of Noah-sama can cut barriers too?!

(Of course. A cheap barrier like that is like paper. It has god-like sharpness after all.) (Noah)

My apologies.

An early cheat weapon really is reliable.

I cut the barrier and carried the girl out. 

I slap the cheek of the girl lightly so to not make a sound.

“Are you okay?” (Makoto)

“…Uh? I fell asleep and…ah, w-who are you?” 

“I am the adventurer that your father requested a rescue mission from.” (Makoto)

I confirmed the name of the girl and made sure she is the right person.

Okay, mission clear.

I am glad we managed to save her when the barrier was still up.

It would be tragic for the girl if the goblins had attacked her…

But I froze at the next words of the girl.

“U-Uhm…the goblins here are not all of them. The Goblin King took some of his subordinates and left the place.” 

The moment I heard that…

The alarm of [Detection] rang.

The danger level isn’t that high.

The problem is the numbers and the location.

A large number of goblins are gathering outside the cave.

(Shit! Furiae-san is still outside.) (Makoto)

I can feel the presence of several tens of monsters! 

This is bad. Furiae-san doesn’t have any weapons.

(Damn it!) (Makoto)

I pull the hand of the girl and hurry outside the cave.

Oracles may have strong stats, but if she is like Sofia-san, she might not be adept in combat. 

There’s the chance they might even catch her by surprise. 

Please make it in time!

What I saw outside…was a goblin horde led by a Goblin King.

…This is the first time I see a king so close.

It is several times bigger than your regular goblin.

Not only is their body big, but their intelligence is also high.

As if to endorse this, he is wearing full armor that he must have stolen from adventurers, and he is holding a weapon in both hands.

If a horde of a Goblin King is big, it could even reach Calamity Designation.

That dangerous monster surrounded Furiae-san and…

“Filthy beast. Daring to touch me.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san’s eyes were shining golden, and the goblins were on their knees.

The Goblin King had his head stepped on by Furiae-san.

(Eeeh…) (Makoto)

It is a number of monsters that would be dangerous to fight normally though…

“Ooi, Princess. What’s…this?” (Makoto)

“Can’t you tell just by looking?” (Furiae)

“You Charmed them all?” (Makoto)

“Fufu, that’s right.” (Furiae)

Seriously?! 

That’s impressive, Moon Oracle.

“How lovely…Princess-sama.”

The captured girl had heart shaped pupils. 

She can Charm women and monsters without any restrictions…?

“Makoto, are you okay?!” 

“Takatsuki-kun, the horde of goblins…eh?” 

Lucy and Sa-san ran to where we are.

Lucy dealt with the whole nest of goblins with her magic. 

And Sa-san piggy-backed the girl.

The girl must have calmed down and felt safe now, she went back to sleep.

I feel like things were wrapped up by my female party members?

On our way back.

“Hey, Princess, can you teach me Charm Magic?” (Makoto)

The hidden technique-like spell that controlled the goblins of before.

I want to try learning that.

I did get a Gift Skill for becoming a Guardian Knight of the Moon Oracle.

But the reaction of Furiae-san wasn’t too positive.

“My knight…are you going to use charm magic to get women?” (Furiae)

“I won’t!” (Makoto)

I objected, but it is magic that can be used in that way too.

“Makoto?” “Takatsuki-kun?” 

Lucy and Sa-san directed eyes of doubt towards me at the same time.

No no, I won’t be doing that.

“It would be better to have as many cards as possible for when I fight monsters, right?” (Makoto)

“Well, fine by me.” (Furiae)

Alright. And while at it, I will have her teach me Moon Magic.

When we returned to the guild, the requester gave me his thanks as if I were a god.

…Well, Furiae-san was the one who did most of the work though.

◇◇

After that, I had Furiae-san teach me charm magic.

I have been running with only water magic until now, so I will be learning new magic now.

It is fun, but it is pretty difficult.

The effect is quite weak, and just to test it out, I used it on Sa-san and Lucy, but…

“Did you do something just now?” “I don’t feel anything…” 

Zero effectiveness.

Looks like it will take awhile before I can see effects in people.

(Spirit-sans, Spirit-sans.) (Makoto)

I try using it on the Water Spirits, and it doesn’t react well.

Undine hasn’t shown up at all since Highland.

It seems to work a tiny bit on animals, and the dogs and cats of the neighborhood would gather around me.

It is cute and all, but…can I even use this in battle?

Did I pull a dud again?

Furiae-san said she wanted to play adventurer, so we went monster hunting at a nearby place with Lucy and Sa-san.

Monsters have increased in numbers lately, so this small work is also the job of adventurers.

What’s most important is that Furiae-san seems to be having fun.

And in this way, several days passed.

Fuji-yan is apparently really busy preparing for the feudal lord successor meeting, so I haven’t met him.

(…It is kinda noisy today.) (Makoto)

When I woke up, there were a whole lot of people gathered at the entrance of the Adventurer Guild.

“Oi, look.” “Beautiful…” “This is my first time seeing her from so close…” “The Ice Sculpture Princess.” “What is she doing in the countryside?” 

(Hmm, I can’t see well with this crowd of people.) (Makoto)

I approach the crowd of people with unsteady steps.

“Hero-dono!” 

A voice I am familiar with.

Old man? Isn’t that the Guardian Knight Old Man? 

Eh? That means…

“Hero Makoto.” 

The one standing there was Princess Sofia with a thin smile.

    1. If he’s going to be Furiae’s guardian knight then sleeping on the floor in the guild hall while his female party members actually look after her is kind of… shabby. Betcha Sophia gives him a hard time when she finds out her country’s Hero is homeless.

      Get a house, Makoto! Doesn’t have to be Kazuma’s mansion or anything like that… or maybe it does if Sophia expects to visit.

  3. Thanks for the chapter! And yay for bonding moments with furiae~ quickly raise her love points so we can learn more about her past makoto! Also i keep on forgetting that his dagger is god-class, wonder if makotos predecessor also had a god class weapon and maybe thats why they were able to slaughter so many heroes? Also i wonder what kind of crazy plans will he try and implement now that hes got charm magic? Cant wait to find out

    1. Perhaps he’ll get another Monster or Half human companion someday. And what i have in mind recently is, are there any dark elves in this world? Would Makoto meet with them some time if they really exist? What if he then able to charm another Spirit element? That would be ridiculous.

        He has a half classmate, half demon beast vanguard
        And now he has a cursed human Oracle as support.

        So not sure what we need as extras. Maybe a physical ranged as rearguard? Make it a beast-kin just for giggles and shits.

  4. Thanks for the chapter~

    Makoto synced with Furi but nothing happens? What if, sync give that certain feeling only when that person is actually compatible with Makoto. That would explains why he said that Sofia’s mana is really compatible and she has that feeling whenever he do le sync. Also Leonard too because he is her siblings which would makes them identical in Mana Structure.

    As for Nina-san, perhaps his RPG skill activated because the skill itself doesn’t know which person is compatible, and that Nina-san is already in relationship so the warning is a preemptive measurement in case if she actually is compatible with Makoto.

    And about the tingling Lucy felt, because Makoto is a water user, and Lucy is fire user which made their mana is countering each other and because of that, their mana has connection somehow? Dunno just my theory.

    Anyway, Furi seems a lot normal of a girl than i thought. And damn i really wants to know the reaction of Lucy and Sa-san when Furi asked her thought.

    Nevertheless, thanks again for the great work, Reigokai!

    1. RPG skill only occurs when the choice of the player heavily influences the fate of the world or the player as far as I understood.

      Synchro with nina would have make him enter NTR route and cut tie with his friends who has important ability. For Fariae, it s different. For two reasons, the first one is that she is the original female heroin as said the author somewhere in the comments of his books and the second is spoiling so I wont say it.

      1. Not baiting at the spoiler one but… the author said that she is the original female heroine? Where? And why?
        I just tought that as she is on a goddess plan in charm magic, sync must have a less impact on her (do not ask why that was logic for me)
        Anyway thanks for this goblin slayer approved chapter, kai-sama!

      2. Afterword of light novel volume 4. You can also follow the author twitter for further information concerning the setting of the world, such as the species lifetime for example.

        The first heroin Makoto was supposed to meet was Furiae, or so the author wanted to do when he began the serie, unfortunately or fortunately, her background alongside her personality as well as her story is quite dark. Hence the author created Lucy who possesses the same root as her (half-demon, not a spoiler there) but a much more positive and lovely personality. Well personally, I enjoy reading Lucy/Sassan/Makoto relationship, in the light novel its way better than in the web novel so Im glad she came to be.

        Liked by 2 people

    2. I think he’s getting closer to them emotionally every time he uses sync, but for those magic orgasms he has to pull a lot of their magic, like he did with Lucy, Sofia, and Leonard. If you think about it, Lucy should be the least compatible with him, her mana even lit him on fire, but he dug deep inside her, to use her Monarch Magic….

      At this rate, by the time Sakurai manages to visit, he’ll already have ntred Furi-chan.

      1. Really, it isnt NTR in the case of Furiae. The condition of NTR is that the two people are in a relationships. But while they both like each other, they cant be in a relationship because both countries citizens would cause great uproar.

      2. She doesn’t have a country, but five countries would be in turmoil if they give in to their forbidden romance…possibly still a problem between two or three countries, if Takki-kun steals her away, add in the rest of the human countries, and probably the demon ones, if it comes out that Makoto is an Evil God worshiper….

      3. She is the princess of her own country though ? I dont remember the name in english since I read in jp but even though the country is poor and ravaged since 1000 years ago, thats the only place where half-demon can live in complete freedom without any discrimination. And she is the princess of this country. .

        Now imagine the reaction of them if she gets in relationship with the “resurrection” of Abel, the hero of light, mostly responsible for all the pain and segregation they suffer. If she didnt care about her people there would be no issue, but on this part she is like princess Sofia, she deeply cares about her citizen.

        But yeah, all the other countries would also be in uproar since the discrimination towards the half-demon is very high

      4. Her country was destroyed 1000 years ago, and the people living there are outcasts from society in general. Only people there that follow her are followers of the Moon Church, which was raided, and all were killed, when they went to capture her. She has no country.

  5. Makoto would make Goblin Slayer proud. He has studied all the locations that goblins frequent and knows that it’s not a good idea to attack a goblin nest head-on thinking that it’ll be easy.

    Furi seems like a sheltered ojou-sama who’s never experienced anything so everything is like an adventure to her or fun. Also I’m sensing she might be a bit of an S. Forcing all the goblins to kneel and then stepping on the goblin king’s head.

    Oh so Makoto has to actually be taught Charm Magic. When he first got it I assumed that he’d just immediately be able to use it or at least know the basics of it. Turns out that become Furiae’s Guardian Knight just gave him the aptitude to learn it but he still needs to be taught it. Anyways it should turn out to be useful in his assassin build.

    I wonder why Sofia is here? Is something bad going to happen that she got an oracle about? Is there some sort of problem with the succession of Makkaren and she came here because of how important the place is to Makoto and Fuji-yan? Or is she just missing Makoto and wanted to spend time with him?

  6. So what we have learned is that Sa-san and Furiae are stronger physically than Makoto while Lucy and Furiae are stronger magically.

    And, it’s pretty clear that he actually somewhat enjoys this state of affairs.

    Not much reaction from Furiae when Makoto synced with her though. Slightly disappointing.

So, he’s learning Charm and Moon magic, it’s about time he got some more skill sets. Taking a beautiful woman to a goblin nest is seriously dangerous. The problem was handled. That case was closed. Wonder what Sofia wants? Liked the chapter and thank you, Reigokai.

      1. Let me assume one thing in regards to that.
        The Moon Oracle was shocked that Makoto resisted her magic – the only thing that she has been able to rely on in her whole life- and was on the verge of killing herself because of it.

        Here’s what I think. The Moon Oracle hates the Goddess, but she has grown reliant on the Moon Magic to protect herself.

        Is there any assurance people will see her differently after losing her Oracle title? She woul lose her Moon Magic that’s for sure.
        It might be that double-sided fear that doesnt allow her to completely throw it away.

  8. Anticlimactic as hell…
    These goblins seem to have been domesticated immediately by Furiae’s touch.

    1. Goblin Slayer has no exposed skin, his eyes are obstructed, and the helmet is so tightly strapped on that you would need to remove his head with it, if he doesn’t help you remove it. So he would probably hold up against Charm okay, under most circumstances, but i worry that his method of making Furiae useful, would be more along the vein of tossing her into a nest as bait for a trap, rather than relying on her to help willingly.

      1. Ohh man!!!..
        Thank you for the info.
        I did view now all the illustration.

        I dont know which of which was the most beautiful.
        Its like, even if one of them are missing, your life was incomplete.

        1. Lucy = too beautiful if her hair is straight down
        2. Sa-san = i imagine her as tomboyish, but in the illustration, that was’nt true, she was charming afterall
        3. Sofia = Well she’s a princess. If she smiles more, you will want her as a serious relationship partner
        4. Furiae – She was a real beauty here. The most impact to me was her waistline, which is a waistline of a woman who will successfully deliver a newly born child
        5. Noel = Your neighborhood crush who visits you in your room to wake you up to go to the school, while pinching your cheeks happily
        6. Noah – a real goddess, for me, she’s more beautiful if she wear lazy type clothes and be lazy all day….

      2. Furiae gave me the impression of someone who looks like she has it all together, even though she actually doesn’t.

        I didn’t expect Sa-san to be quite so…short? Like, petite was mentioned, but not that much. I guess Lamias are bigger in my mind than this world’s.

  10. Yup yup. Furiae-san is finally getting a taste of a relaxed yet exciting adventurer’s life. It’s not exactly stable, but sure is a hell of a lot better than being a fugitive for life.
    Nice to see her indulge in normal things like girl talk and stepping on Goblin King heads too.

    I guess it’s a good thing Takki’s Charm magic isn’t that strong so it can’t add to his natural charisma, but…I wonder how this is gonna synergize?

    Princess Sophia is here. I hope firstly, that there isn’t an emergency and she’s just here to hang out with Takki, and secondly, that she brought Leo along.

  11. Of course it didn’t work on Sa-san and Lucy, they are already charmed the natural old fashioned way! By Protagonist Power Fantasy Magic!

  12. Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    When he used charm on the girls and there was no reaction I was like: “Makoto… they are already charmed by you, so there is no point in using charm magic… –‘ “.
    And I’m sure that Princess Sophia is here because she is pissed that he didn’t go to the Capital of Rose to report his return to the country or at least send a message as the Water Country’s state Hero (officially) and don’t told her (personnaly). x)

  13. Did this happen the same way at LN too?
    I wish it wasn’t. And that the editor of the author advised him to change this scenario.
    It would be fine for a WN but very badly executed for a published book.
    The plot barrier is hard to bear. The 1 hour time limit makes it harder not to retort.
    Barriers has hp too yknow, might as well has increase of fuel consumption when continuously hit.
    Im also really sad for the father. He gets a 1m debt to the guild as pure tax. Makoto wouldn’t even get a piece of shit.

    1. Makoto will probably just wave off the fee with some excuse like the guy never made an official request on paper so he doesn’t need to pay or something.
