Searching the Marquis’s House PAGE 2 So Philly was being kept alive to make this mysterious metal. It was possible that she was the very reason that this house had been targeted in the first place.   “I’ve seen this metal several times recently.” “That is surprising, given how rare it is.

Detour Ends PAGE 2 I closed the lid now that I was ready to leave. In the next instant, the box began to sink into the floor by itself, until the surface was perfectly level with the rest of the floor. For a moment, I wondered if there was some kind of trap, and I…

The Mysterious Girl PAGE 2 The door opened slowly without making any sound. At the same time, the smell of chemicals wafted in the air. There was a short girl who wore glasses in the middle of the room. Her hair was long and shaggy. Her clothes were hardly pretty, to put it politely.  …

Discovery Detour PAGE 2 “YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!”   My cry of triumph echoed from the hole. I wiped at the dirt on my cheek, in effect, smearing it further. But I didn’t care about that at all. After all… After all…!   I had finally discovered the underground entrance!   “How could I not be happy! I…

The Marquis’s Dog PAGE 2 “Woooo…ooo…”   It was more of a moan than a bark. I guess it wasn’t a watchdog. A watchdog would be barking up a storm. But its moan was very weak and quiet.   I moved slowly as to not frighten the dog. And then observed it. It a very…

Excavation Detour PAGE 2 As I looked at it and wondered why it seemed so familiar, Daniela returned from her stroll.   “There really is nothing around here… What, that, that…!” “Ah, Daniela.

Invading Marquis Mastafon’s House PAGE 2 I changed my clothing before heading to Marquis Mastafon’s mansion. Not fighting clothes. I needed clothes that did not draw attention. This district was full of mansions owned by noblemen, so metal armor and a gleaming Devil King Sword would stick out too much. It would be one thing…

Travels, Detour PAGE 2 Five days have passed since we left the south gate. Daniela and I were at the foot of the rocky mountains. It was a path we had traveled through before, but as we were in a hurry then, I had not really taken in the view. This time it was slower…

Marquis Mastafon PAGE 2 Three servants had disappeared from Marquis Mastafon’s house. That was more than any other single house. Serulis looked concerned as she said,   “So you really think Marquis Mastafon’s house is the most suspicious?” “Are you going to break the door down as you did with Kabino?” “We can’t do that.…

Farewell, Replant PAGE 2 Daniela and I returned to the inn and quickly finished packing. We had stayed here for so long, but once it was decided that we would be leaving, we began to pack our things a little by little every day. And so we were mostly prepared to leave.   “So this…

The Mystery of the Sewers PAGE 2 I felt that Milka’s observations were correct. Well, if she was right, we would have to go to the scene in order to find proof. And we still didn’t know who was behind it all.   Serulis said,   “If people are being abducted here…” “Then it might…

Preparing for the Journey PAGE 2 Well, these preparations were much the same as always. Restocking food and equipment. My hollow bag had been filled with orc fangs, which meant I had to reorganize a lot of things later. Currently, it was filled with the cloth I had recovered from the Adventurers. Of course, I…

The Secret of the Missing People PAGE 2 My house was close to the palace. This meant that there were many mansions owned by powerful nobles in the area. Because of this, it was a safe neighborhood. There were officers patrolling the streets at all times.   “It’s unusual for people to disappear from this…

After the Battle PAGE 2 A month has passed since that battle. I am now leaning on my elbow over a desk on the veranda. Alone, I stare out at the view that the city of Replant offers. The sky is clear, with just one large cloud floating with the wind. It suddenly begins to…

The Battle with the Devil’s Forces PAGE 2 I asked the young dwarves to lead the way as we traveled up the tunnel.   While they were young, dwarven youths all have great beards, making it difficult to know their age.   They navigated the dark tunnels without hesitation. I was very thankful for that.…
