Takami no Kago Chapter 17

Second chapter today, but the first for Takami no Kago. This was a lot easier than MoM and only 1/4 as long. I’ll start translating the next MoM chapter tomorrow, I wouldn’t expect it to be done until next week. As ever I hope you enjoy it.

Previous chapters can be found here.

Chapter 17

In games,specific monsters can become companion monsters.
Since there aren’t any monsters in the beginning, I start off by looking for monsters, but they do not readily come out.
I thought that there would be a monster if I went near the 『Fountain of Slime』, but I arrived without meeting a monster at all.

“What is that slime?”

There was a reddish slime at the 『Fountain of Slime』. The common slime is transparent, this one is not.
This strange slime had defeated a goblin.
When I found it the goblin had more than half of it’s body devoured by the body of the slime and the rest of it’s body is covered in slime.
The silhouette of the goblin was gradually becoming shorter and had already shrunk to about 30cm in total length.
It is bigger than a common slime, whilst saying that the slime dragged the goblin’s body as it assimilates it, It started to move slowly.

“A 『Mutant』 slime huh? Maybe it’s because of that slime there aren’t any monsters in this area.”

I confirmed the monster’s status whilst Amy says so.

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

The status is not as large as Amy suggested. If it’s just this not only a sharp wolf, but even a group of goblins can defeat it.
However this is a 『Mutant』 monster with a skill. It may have a special attack method.
Normally I should not approach it carelessly. However with the timing this 『Mutant』 slime appeared.
When I noticed I changed Ayla’s job to Demon Trainer.
I don’t understand what type of job Demon Trainer is or what effect the Demon Trainer skill has, but the change of job seems to have a higher success rate.

“Ayla, make that monster a companion.”

“Eh? A companion?”

“I think it should be possible to use a skill to make it a companion.”

“U…Understood.”

Ayla faces the the Mutant slime alone. I prepare myself to help immediately if needed.
The slime is vulnerable to fire and magic. Because I’ve yet to try magic, I light a torch.
The slime seemed to notice Ayla. It began to move toward Ayla slowly.
When the distance between the two became approximately 5m the slime suddenly stopped moving.
Ayla considers the slime with an serious face. The considered slime slightly jiggles.
The stand off continues for about 10 minutes. Ayla suddenly raises up her right hand and the slimes bodies expanded in response.
Was it a failure? Ayla lowers her arm and we take a stance as the slime begins to move.
Ayla waves her arm up and down several degrees and the slime answers it.
It’s a very strange scene, but it seems to be following Ayla’s instructions somehow or other.

“Ayla did it work?”

“Yes master. This child is listening to what I say.”

It’s a success. It seems Ayla and the slime are able to communicate.
A common slime which sprang out of the fountain of slime was made a companion as a trial for [Demon Trainer], but it was only able to follow simple orders and did not have the intelligence to understand what it heard or communicate.
Because I didn’t have a use for the slime I decided to feed it to the gluttony slime. As it took in the slime it’s colour became lighter and it’s volume slightly increased, but returned to normal immediately. Where did the increased amount go?
Because I didn’t want to call it slime forever, I decided to give it a name.

“Well, what kind of name is good?”

Because it is a gluttony slime is Gula fine?

“Because it’s a slime, Sula is good.”

Amy gives her opinion. It’s simpler than mine.

“How about Ruby because it’s a beautiful red slime?”

I decided on a name that was cosiderably more proper than our opinions.

“Your name is Ruby, best regards Ruby.”

Ruby seems to understand what we’re saying. Its body jiggles frequently when it’s happy. Its intelligence is awfully high even for its status.
As expected its body jiggles when Ayla touches it because she’s recognised as its master, but it also jiggles when Ayla or I touch it.
Even if I touch Ruby, Ruby seems to understand our intent and adjusts its body’s viscosity so that my hand isn’t swallowed inside its body.
It’s interesting, but I don’t know whether it can become a war pontential yet, but it ate a goblin so lets have some expectations there.
As I thought about it I remembered that there were no monsters in the area. Amy thought Ruby was the cause, but I wonder what the real reason is?

“Ayla please ask Ruby the reason why there are so few monsters here.”

“Understood.”

Ayla began to talk to Ruby who was held to Alya’s chest.
Hearing the story, Ruby was not involved with the disappearance of monsters. It seems Ruby was born after an increase in the number of slimes near the spring and because of the disappearance of other monsters Ruby began cannibalaism.
Then why did the monsters disappear? We seem to be cause. As a result of continually coming to this forest and hunting during this month, the monsters in the area seem to have been killed or run away.
This forest is unbelievably large. According to the stories it seems it would take a person more than a week to come out the other side on foot.
It is caused by us hunting monsters here which do not have a subjugation request recently. The surviving monsters seem to have migrated by the time we passed the town guards.
It’s possible Mimic Orc that were near Wereo may have been lured into coming here from somewhere else by the monsters’ migration.
According to Ruby’s words, I came to understand the recent large movements of monsters and lost goblins occasionally coming to the spring. After some consideration, it became known as the massive migration of monsters.

“Is the annihilation of monsters near town bad?”

“I don’t think you need to worry about that. Even if there is a temporary decrease, a perfect extinction is almost impossible and once the migration ends, the number of monsters will increase again and may return to this area.”

Monster reproduction is very quick. Goblins seem to take two weeks from birth to become adults. the fertility of monsters seems to be several times that of normal creatures even if they aren’t goblins.
For that reason it seems the number of monsters in the area will immediately increase and recover.

“I think they’ll be killed at any rate and it isn’t a problem if a monster is missed. Work for adventurers isn’t only monster subjugation and they are basically vagrants. If there isn’t enough game they’ll simply move on to a different town.”

Is that also the case? The mosters won’t go extinct because of the demons and demonlord. In addition Amy told me that it was because magic power overflowed in this world. Temporarily decreasing the numbers isn’t a big deal.

“Is it alright to bring Ruby to town?”

“A demon trainer can enter town with a monster companion.”

Is that so? Then demon trainer is finished for the time being. What should I change my ‘job’ to next?

Using 【Job Changer】I try changing my job to 『Magician』.

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

There seems to be no change in my status and skills. I thought I would surely get the skill『Fire magic』. When I concentrate my thoughts on 【Sage in the making】,

*******************************************
Magic list MP 315/315
*******************************************

There is MP, but it seems there is no magic yet
For the time being let’s test various ways.

“Fire, Thunder, Water.”

I cry out various things, but there is no result.
Ayla is speechless. Amy,

“What are you doing?”

says directly.

“I intended to use magic”

“Why did you shout to use magic?”

“You don’t shout?”

“I don’t shout.”

They don’t seem to shout for magic in this world.

“Magic is something you learn by training.”

“Isn’t there an incantation or magic circle?”

“I’ve not heard of it. The rank is divided according to how much much one can manipulate an attribute. Oh, I think there are people who do various things for mental concentration.”

In other words, there is neither an incantation and nor does there seem to be a magic called ‘Fire Ball’. There are people who practice making fire like a ball, manipulating the flame and throwing it at the other party.
It seems appropriate to call it ‘Fire Ball’

“What do you do for training?”

“In the case of training fire magic you manipulate your magic freely through the flame of a candle.”

With water a pail of water is used. The part of manipulating magic through the thing you wish to manipulate appears to be the same.
This is special training for when I return. Because there was an indication of MP in the list of magic, I should have magic power itself.

“By the way, what can a 『Priest』do?”

“『Priest』can perform recovery. They’re able to detoxify and remove light curses.”

“What is the difference from 『Shinto priest』?”

“The person necessary for a party of a adventurers is a “priest”. There is a slightly limited amount of curses which can be removed. A “priest” couldn’t remove my “curse”.”

“Ah, Is that why you asked me whether I was a 『Shinto priest』?”
“Yes, Because I didn’t have the money to ask a 『Shinto priest』 to remove my curse. When you become a 『Shinto priest』 you get a position at the church.”

In other words, is it that 『Priest』work as adventurers to get a high level so that they can become 『Shinto Priest』and work in the church?.
It is different from my original world. If I’m not mistaken 『Priest』 are Buddhist and 『Shinto Priest』follow Shintoism. Well this is talking about Japan at least.
I change my job to 『Priest』 using【Job changer】. After all the skills do not increase. Perhaps it’ll be added to the magic list of 【Sage in the making】from now on like magician.

“Do you know how 『Priest』 trains?”

Is it training or is it study in this case?

“Because『Priest』study is not to be leaked to outsiders, I do not understand it in detail.

It is an important source of income. Oh, perhaps it’ll be the same as magician. I send magic power into the thing I want to manipulate and operate it and the more I do this the better it’ll become.

“Alright, for the time being I’ll stop. Let’s gather some medical herbs as we return to town this time.

It probably isn’t night yet, but it will be sunset soon. We’re in the forest so it’s already dim. By the time we arrive in town is will be completely dark.

“Yes, understood.”

“After all I did not meet many monsters and we lost momentum because it was our first campaign as a party.”

We returned to town with Ruby.

thank you very muchhhhh~~
I’ve checked that in the previous chapter Shinto Priest was translated as Miko..

Solpower
Member

Shinto Priest 神官 Shinkan and Miko 巫女 are definitely quite different words and I’m sure I didn’t confuse them. That said I feel Shinto Priest is awkward, but I’m reluctant to use Miko like previous chapters in case Miko 巫女 makes an appearance in the future. If you think I’ve made a mistake please don’t hesitate to let me know in the future though. I really appreciate this kind of feedback.

udin-san
Member

now I understand why you used Shinto Priest since I didn’t check the RAW. It’s obvious I can’t read the Kanji haha
Thanks

Solpower
Member

Problem remains that it feels awkward, but I feel like the author himself blatantly pointed out how odd it was.

when I try to search on google, 神官 (shinto priest) is likely to be the head of 神主 (shinto priest) or maybe just a higher position. I didn’t check the detail though.
And since this chapter stated that “『Priest』work as adventurers to get a high level so that they can become 『Shinto Priest』”, maybe 神官=”high priest” or something?

this is Miko by the way, a Shrine Maiden~

Well, you already did a good job to spoil us humble leecher by continuing this series ^__^

Solpower

If I just use high priest though the exposition on how MC feels one belongs to Buddhism and the other to Shintoism might be lost. I’ll consider high priest though.
