Slave Harem – 197 – Deceptive Methods

This is the week that NEVER ENDS!

Thanks for all the love guys, you’re really keeping us motivated, keep it coming. 🙂

I encourage you all to share the love with some of your other favorite TL’s too. Motivate the crap out of them. 🙂

Deceptive Methods

“You received an area attack magic, do you believe that you can handle one on a higher floor?”
“Y-yes. I will be fine. I need to work hard in order to reach the point where I can be even slightly helpful.”

Rutina got back on her feet and acknowledged moving to a higher floor.
That’s some recovery power she had.
Quite strong.

“Seems like we still have some time too.”
“Yes. We still have a little time till noon.”

After confirming it with Roxanne, we don’t have a problem with time.
It is necessary to buy essential items for Rutina today, but it’s hot during the day.
It would be nice in the evening where it’s slightly cooler

Perhaps, the shop would be crowded if everyone is thinking the same?
Should I do it during the day under the hot weather when there is less people?

“Is it fine shopping in the evening? Or, Should we finish it early?”
“Let me see. It’s  better to change our clothes early and fight diligently in the labyrinth.”

I received a Spartan answer when I consulted Roxanne.
Defeating a demon bare-handed has already been done by Roxanne and the others.
Roxanne understands it very well that I plan to let Rutina do it as well.
Is this what they call striking while the iron is hot?

The problem is, will we be able to finish shopping on time!?
Rather, isn’t it better to go when it’s sunset?
Specially for my waiting time.

Oh well, I may let them do shopping occasionally with all their hearts.
When the time is up, it is up.

“How about observing the 26th floor for a little, then head to shopping?”
“Understood.”
“Once we go to the 26th floor, a place with a lot of monsters is good.”
“Yes.”

We move to the 26th floor.
Sherry explains the Cape Carp to Rutina.
I am glad that it was Cape Carp after all.
It wasn’t necessary to explain it to Sherry.

We fight against the Cape Carp as the main monster several times.
My thunder magic played a large role in the fights.
There is no need to receive Area attack magic again, since we already received it.
It is better if the monsters stop moving by using Thunder magic.

One after the other the monsters became paralyzed.
I defeated the monsters with Thunder Magic.
Oh~ Shit.
Rutina didn’t use magic, but the number of Thunder Magic needed to defeat monsters did not change.

It’s still the same?
With this the number didn’t change for the 23rd, 24th, 25th,and 26th floors.
Indeed, that’s unexpected.

It was thanks to the effect of Great Intelligence Increase from Jobless for the 24th and 25th floors.
For it to not increase on the 26th floor, is it thanks to Rutina’s Wizard Lv11 and my Great Hero becoming LV11?
At level 11 a little effect will appear.

It’s worth mentioning that my Great Hero and Rutina’s Wizard level is the same.
Since I spent some bonus points to decrease the necessary experience, it is fine to think that the Great Hero is harder to level than the Wizard.

I even think that Great Hero is tougher to level compared to Hero.
But there is no denying that it’s an excellent job in many ways.
Either way, it will raise smoothly til Lv30.

“How about we end it at this point?”

Luckily for me, Sherry didn’t say anything even though the number didn’t change.
Taking advantage of this, I decided to retreat.
Rutina had observed the Cape Carp enough as well.

I cast [Warp], and went home.
As I came out in the living room, I release all the tension by taking a deep breath.

“Was I able to help to some extent?”

Rutina, asked while being nervous.
Not me, but Roxanne.

“It was alright. You did plenty enough.”
“Okay. Thank you very much.”
“Let’s do our best together.”

Roxanne lead Rutina skillfully.
Rather than leading, I guess it can be called copying.
Roxanne is expecting everyone to fight.

“This party has a lot of secrets. I agree with Roxanne-ane-sama and Sherry-ane-sama, we cannot say careless things. I will be cautious as well.”

Rutina braced herself.
What did Roxanne and Sherry say to her?
Being careful is important.

After taking a little break, we go shopping.
Because walking under the sunlight is too hot.
How should I do it?
I can [Warp] to the dungeon and exit using the entrance, but I don’t really want to do that, since I’m not paying any entrance fees.

“Should we proceed to the adventurers guild and go around to the grocery store? Or do we start at the Merchant Guild and then to the clothes shop?”
“Let’s see. We better go to the clothes shop.”

Listening to Roxanne, it was unusual to go from the Merchant guild then to the clothes shop immediately.
Or rather, am I going to shop for clothes until evening when the sunlight lessens?
But Roxanne was the one who suggested that Rutina should fight.

I [Warp] to the Merchant guild, and proceed to the clothes shop.
There is no air-conditioning inside the shops in this world.
Nevertheless, it is better that there is shade.
I feel pretty cool.

“For clothes, it is important to have 3 tops and bottoms first. After that, I’ll buy one top and bottom for everybody except for Rutina.”
“Thank you very much.”

All the girls bow their heads.
Shopping just for Rutina could cause complaints.
Believing that they understood, we came to get the required items.
A problem won’t occur easily if everyone bought one piece.

Rutina bowed her head, but Quratar’s western style clothing may be a downgrade for a former Earl’s daughter.
Unless, it is tailored in the clothes shop in the Imperial Capital.
I will go to the clothes shop in the Imperial Capital later, but I need to finish this and that.
And unlike Roxanne and the other girls, Rutina may possess hostility.

“Choose whatever you like.”

At least in the clothes shop I let them choose freely.
Everyone is picking and Roxanne is in the middle.

“It is ready-made, but it is new. everyone wears nice clothes. However I assumed that I won’t be able to wear decent clothes because I turned into a slave. I will be made fun of if I wear unacceptable clothes to the Lord’s meeting. It may be fine with this.”

Seems like Rutina is quite satisfied.
She seems fine with the clothes shops in Quratar.
It appears that she’s still thinking about the Lords’ Assembly.

“Master, how about this?”

Roxanne brought clothes to me.
Because I said everyone, it seems I’m the first one to choose.

“It’s not bad. I don’t have any problems in what Roxanne has selected. I am fine with this.”
“Thank you very much. We will be choosing immediately.”

I think that it took time, but it seems that Roxanne only selected clothes for me and the other girls.

“Don’t worry about time, select carefully.”

It is not like we extremely need to go to the labyrinth by all means.
I would like to let Roxanne do the shopping carefully and take her time.
Basically, I was questioning myself whether I should go or not.

“I think this matches the color of Roxanne-ane-sama’s bottom.”
“You also think so?”
“This color is effective in standing out.”

Rutina is giving a lot of advice.
I wonder if it’s a duty she had as an Earl’s daughter?
For me, I don’t really have any idea.

“Isn’t this a little childish?”
“Nope. I think it is lovely.”
“Really?”

Sherry asked for advice, I guess she’s reliable.

“Miria-ane-sama will look good with this color.”
“Onee-chan, desu.”
“I think this will be alright.”

Vesta also asked Rutina for advice.

“Possibly it’s better with this one?”
“Thank you very much.”

In the end, the sun had already begun to set by the time they finished choosing.
It’s a delicate time.
It is not as late as I thought.

There’s still time to enter the labyrinth for a moment.
Or Did Roxanne cut it closely on purpose?
The battle can wait.
After that, we return home after going to the general store.

“You can change into the clothes we bought in the room over there. I will have you fight a little in the labyrinth instead of observing. I don’t think you will face any problems since you seem able to cope properly.”
“Understood.”
“Please finish quickly.”

As we came back home, I sent Rutina to the next room.
Although I said today is observation day, but it should be fine.
Particularly, she’s not scared to fight.

“Thank you very much.”
“Onee-chan, desu.”

Rutina received the clothes from Miria, and went to the next room.
Because I didn’t go to the general store first, Rutina didn’t have a backpack.
Sherry, Miria and Vesta split Rutina’s clothes and brought them back.
Roxanne carried my clothes.

“Because we don’t have much time, she should change her clothes here.”

Roxanne said a terrible thing.
I see.
I could have used that method?

“You are right. Well that is fine for now.”

I didn’t think of that.
Because we are living under the same roof, doing that much may be fine.

Apparently, Roxanne doesn’t mind.
Is there any resistance?
Or possibly, does she think that it is natural to put my hands on Rutina since she’s a slave?

In the first place, who’s fault was it that there is no time!?
I wonder if we spent all that time for this purpose?
There is no chance.

“Thank you for waiting.”
“Oh. It suits you well.”
“Thank you very much.”

Rutina came back.
Rutina wearing pants looks beautiful.
A Beautiful girl is pretty no matter what she wears.

Her body line is neat and attractive.
From her butt to the calf, a slender leg draws a nice curve line.
Not too thin, not too fat, legs that are shaped beautifully.
She looks like a model.

At Quratar’s labyrinth, we first fight in the 7th floor.
I killed the Slow Rabbit Roxanne found with 1 [Fire Ball].
A single blow?
After that I tried it out on the 8th, 9th, and 10th floor but only the monster on the 10th stayed alive after I shoot one.

Looks like we can beat them up till Level 9.
The power dramatically increased by having Great Hero, Jobless and Rutina joining.
Of course I killed the LV10 Escape Goat that tried to run away.

“I plan on letting Rutina fight, is the 10th floor alright?”
“As if the 10th floors monsters will be a problem.”

I asked Roxanne, and her answer gave me a peace of mind.
No need to waver.
It is possible to let her fight one or two floors lower if I removed Hero, Great Hero, and Jobless though.
And I can even go further down if used Wizard magic instead of Great Wizard magic.

I can add bonus points to increase the intellect power, but I can’t adjust it to negative to reduce the power.
There is also the problem of overcrowding if we go down in Quratar’s labyrinth.
Since we have Rutina as a Wizard, there is no problem if it is known that our party fights using magic.

If someone passed by and observed us from behind, even if they see the afterglow of fire magic, they will probably judge that Rutina cast it.
Rutina joining us is a splendid advantage.
Perhaps Rutina didn’t notice that.

“I feel relieved because even if someone saw us by chance using magic we have Rutina, but it doesn’t particularly need to be on a lower floor?”
“You are right.”
“It is thanks to Rutina.”

I praised Rutina who showed slight self-doubt sometimes.
Rutina shows a slight wondering face.
Is it because she wasn’t recognized as a fighting force?
But she only needs to be here.

“I didn’t join the magic guild either, and I think it is better that man doesn’t know that I was able to use magic after only half a day.”

Rutina asked Sherry after pondering.
Is Sherry in charge of that part?

“You are right, regarding the guild. As for being able to use it in half a day, it is possible to interpret that it happened by chance.”
“As far as I know, he’s never come across us in the labyrinth.”
“Wouldn’t that be bad.”

I see.
Is there any suspicion from such a place?
But it will be alright if any subordinate of the Dukes doesn’t see us.

Sherry and Rutina appear to be worried about information leaking.
Sherry said something that sounded more like threatening Rutina.
Also Rutina, even though she hardly knows anything about a Labyrinth, she’s sharp in unusual matters.

“I will be careful. You did well in recognizing it.”
“Politics is entirely strategy. Strategy means information. If I can’t get hold of any information, I won’t be able to enter the Lord’s meeting.”
“R-really?”
“Scheming is the way of life for Aristocrats.”

It’s like the Art of War.
Is this what’s called Dishonest means of troops?
Is the lord’s meeting about cheating each other?
Rutina seems to be unexpectedly terrifying.

““Let me see. It’s better to change our clothes early and fight diligently in the labyrinth.””
Could be nothing, but there’s a double space there between ‘It’s’ and ‘better’, makes me think that maybe a word got left out somehow.

P.S:
Jiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii~

I don’t have the edited version but I have seen the unedited one. Yep, it’s just double space.

so if you guys are giving a chapter for every 100 comments, wont you never stop giving chapters?

Jack Trowell
Guest

If I understand correctly, we are becoming close to the original version by now, so if they do translate one chapter per day, we should reach the limit in probably less than a month, leaving nothing more to translate anyway until the author release a new chapter.

Anonymous
Guest

there are currently 215 chapters, and probably one more in the next 7 days, so there are only 18+ 1 possible chapter to be translated. since this is the 18th chapter in a row they are already halfway finished or nearly halfway finished and since the novel only updates every 2 months they will hopefully get a well deserved break afterwards.

Nemesis

We’re running out of chapters so soon? Nooooo!

Yep, we are giving a chapter for 100 comments and we will have to stop at chapter 215 unless the author releases another chapter by the time we catch up.

by the way was rutina officially registered yet as the MCs slave??
also i just reread everything from the invasion of the earls territory up till now and just realized that it somehow foreshadows maybe one more slave to join the harem, the whole MC mentioning that table still has one more seat available thing, if its true wonder who it is or what species?? probably a human??

Doesn’t a party can only consist of 6 member… Michio, Roxaane, Miria, Sherry, Vesta dan Rutina .. the team is already full and the bed is already crowded …

he can always buy new bed and table :p
remember when the MC wanted to buy slave to cook and clean while they are in labyrinth so everything is ready when they come back in order to save time for other matters, well Roxanne and the girls refused the idea at that time.

Hm its all possible just 1 thing very important problem its …………………….. Mc still don’t have advanced Sex maniac job.

He said, “5 of 6 seats are already allotted.” Four girls and one Michio. Rutina takes the empty one.

Also, I use Jisho.org for the sentence usage of difficult words.

Hope this helps.

Anonymous
Guest

I use the browser plugin Rikia-tan/chan/kun (depending on which browser you use), multiple web translators, (especially Excite’s – http://www.excite.co.jp/world/english_japanese/), and jisho.org. I highly recommend learning the hiragana and katakana (memorizing 48-ish things sounds like a lot, but you can do it in a week or two pretty easily), plus whatever grammar you can scrounge up. Watching Japanese language video (like anime) is also good for learning pronunciation, common phrases, and other stuff.

yup MC has slave trader since long time ago.
it was before he got jobless

update from Merchant i believe

BobTheEverLiving
Guest

Though it’s been several chapters, it hasn’t yet been a full day since he picked up Rutina.
If he’s going to go to a slave trader, it likely would be the one in Vale which is only open once every 5 days.
We also don’t know if the Earl was found or escaped. Vale’s thieves could get word of Rutina and ambush them on the way to the Slave Trader. Hrmm, maybe someone else would pick up ‘Hero’ if that happens.

Magstzerp
Guest
I don’t think so. Remember. In order to get ‘hero’ job, one of the conditions is to fight thieves before you get any job other than villager. If you get a second job before you get hero job, then you wont be able to get hero job anymore.
IamMe
Guest

Hero can only be picked up if the very first thing you kill, even by proxy, is a thief. As they have all been hunting for awhile now none of them are eligible anymore.

What do you bet that when Great Hero reaches level 50, Sex Maniac gets an improved version?

MyEnglishISbroken
Guest

1 new chapter?

mranon
Admin

I don’t think Racial jobs are connected to other jobs. If anything, it should be Villager level. Other than that, there must be other conditions. Like in Michio’s case, it was most likely having sex with both Roxanne and Sherry. In Sherry’s case, it was hitting multiple targets. For the advancement of Sex Maniac, I think he needs to have sex with more girls at the same time.

wow02
Guest

more then 5 girls +50 lv sex maniac ?

jiji
Guest

If so name of that job will be ‘Rabbit Maniac’

Dumah
Guest

The question is which level his sex maniac has. If I recall right he stopped leveling it because he becomes (sexual) frustated in the Labyrinth. I mean yeah fighting all day long with a boner is anoying 😀

mranon
Admin

He brought it to Lv30 IIRC.

Kemm
Guest

Or having sex with girls of every race (at the same time or not). Or drowning in perversion. Or with bot males and females at the same time (it’s a racial job, not a gender-specific job).

BobTheEverLiving
Guest

It probably is level 50 as every tier 1 job seems to upgrade there.
Still maybe he has to sleep with someone’s wife to get a ‘Philander’ upgrade .
:p
