Slave Harem – 208 – Phoenix

Hey guys,

mranon here.
Here’s another Slave Harem chapter for the week. (Just to remind you, it’s the same week)
Thanks for the awesome love you guys showed on the last chapter!
You know the deal.
Well then, enjoy the read.

Yours truly,


Phoenix

Last chapter summary: Started making a futon.

The next day. We challenge the 32nd floor boss early morning.
Roxanne leads in light strides.

“Uun, there are monsters close by, but they’re merely Non-rem Golems. Also, there aren’t many. It’ll be better for us to proceed to the boss battle straight away.”

We advance without paying any attention to a small group of monsters en route.
Roxanne quickly guides the party to the boss room.
After having waited a day, we’re brimming with motivation.

“The Rockbird boss is called Firebird. Although its weakness is the same as a Rockbird’s, the attribute it uses isn’t. It’s proficient in Fire magic and resistant to Fire attribute. Since its resistance differs, we need to be careful.”

Having received the briefing from Sherry in the waiting room, we proceed to the boss room.
The resistance of the Rockbird boss seems to be different from a Rockbird’s.
It’s a rare pattern.
They tend to mostly be identical.

We enter the boss room.
Smoke gathers in the centre of the room as the monsters take form.
The Firebird is a bird covered in red flame.

Ooh
It’s a bird on fire.
It’s a Phoenix.
It’s undoubtedly a fire bird. (TN: The kanji for Phoenix literally means fire bird)

It’s burning.
It’s flaring.
Its red hot flame is burning everything up.
An infringing hellfire which the escape is impossible from.

It’ll completely bake the boss room.
And then, there’ll be another Gomorrah. (TN: City destroyed by fire & brimstone. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodom_and_Gomorrah)
The Firebird buries its frighteningly flaming head.

An overwhelming blow that could turn anything into what would appear to be a pillar of salt. (TN: Another reference to Gomorrah)
Roxanne lightly sways and dodges it.
She has dodged it.

So, even the 32nd floor boss is unable to land an attack on Roxanne, eh?
She swings her neck in order to avoid the next thrust.
This time, the margin of evasion was slightly larger than usual.
She must’ve taken the flickering flame into consideration.

She’s dodging much more than usual.
Roxanne is in charge of the labor work.
Her fee is the same, though.

Such words are flashing through my mind.
Oh well. It’ll all go into one wallet anyway.
I, who’s in charge of desk work, cast spells.

After petrifying a Rockbird, Miria joins in on the attack.
Having fulfilled her quota of one spell, Rutina participates in the physical attacks using her stick.
It doesn’t seem to be that hot.
Oh well. Since it’s weak against Water and Ice magic, there’s no reason for it to be.

Oh, paralysis.
As the Firebird’s movement ceases, it drops down.
Since Miria keeps attacking, it seems to be paralysis, not sleep nor petrifaction.

It’s difficult to distinguish between paralysis, petrifaction and sleep merely from appearance.
Moreover, its flame seems to be flickering normally even though it has been paralyzed.

“Did it, desu.”

This time, it’s the signal of petrifaction.
It’s incomprehensible from the appearance, after all.
The flame seems to still be flickering.

I have no particular interest in touching it, so I finish it off with magic.
The Rockbird, which Vesta was keeping company, dies before Miria could petrify it.
In the boss battles, Miria’s performance is outstanding.
Speaking conversely, because Miria is able to perform outstandingly, the 32nd floor boss battle is safe.

The monsters vanish, leaving items behind.
The Rockbirds dropped feathers while the Firebird left behind… something.
Something like leather.

When I use Appraisal, it displays ‘ostrich’.
Ostrich……
Was that an ostrich?
When I heard it was a fire bird, I thought it would be a dignified creature; however, no sooner I found it was an ostrich behind the guise, I felt betrayed.

Oh well. Considering it was able to fly, it’s commendable.
After all, it wasn’t a bird inside.

“Can it be made into an armor?”
“It’s ostrich. Because it’s too soft, it can’t be made into an armor. It’s used in making a sturdy bag.”

I ask Sherry, but it doesn’t seem to be able to be made into an armor.
I have never seen an ostrich armor; so, yeah.

“Because it’s light and can be made into a beautiful design, it’s popular amongst the noble ladies. When attending the Lords’ Assembly, it’d be wonderful to have an ostrich briefcase.”

Rutina shares some unnecessary information.
She doesn’t seem to have any intention of forgoing the Lords’ Assembly.
Being a noble is as troublesome as I expected.
Would I be disrespected if I went there with an Adventurer-use rucksack?

‘Look at that! He’s carrying a rucksack in the Lords’ Assembly! Which rural area is that noble from?’
‘Why is he carrying a sword more splendid than himself? He’s not gonna use it, is he?’
‘Oh, is he drawing the sword? Is he going to draw the sword? If he did, he would lose his territory and peerage. He might even receive capital punishment.’
‘He hasn’t drawn? What a coward!’
‘Mannerless bastard! Countryside nobles should keep themselves locked up inside the labyrinth. Like a carp in a well.’
‘Carp, a carp, a noble carp!’

These are mere thoughts; don’t get angry, me.
Don’t. Calm down.
According to the Emperor and the Duke of Harz, defeating the labyrinths is the purpose of a noble’s existence.
An attire appropriate for a labyrinth cannot be ridiculed.
Rather, if it were a branded bag, I would be considered a snob.
How many nobles enter the labyrinths?
Those who shirk their responsibilities, ramble gaudily and turn corrupt will end up as the Earl of Selmar.

“Or better yet, an Orichalcum attache case. If needs be, it can be used as a shield, too.”
“Orichalcum cannot be processed unless a Master Smith uses their skill. It can neither be melted nor treated. As for Orichalcum attache case, it’s not recognized either as an armor or as a weapon.”

When I try to retort, I get refuted by Sherry.
There has to be such a thing as Orichalcum attache case.

“On the 33rd floor, if I remember correctly, are the Drive Dragons?”

Let’s change the topic.

“Correct.”

Since the bosses will appear as normal monsters on the 34th floor onward in the same order, Sherry’s domain will get restricted.
The opportunities for her to refute will get lessened, too.
We surge to the 33rd floor.

Since we have already fought the Drive Dragons before; also, since we twisted and turned the 32nd floor monsters and reached the 33rd floor by ourselves, I’m not afraid.
A mere dragon isn’t worthy of frightening me.

On a second thought, the duration of battles has considerably lengthened.
It has doubled.
Won’t they be stronger here?
I have fought the Drive Dragons before, yeah, but it was on the 1st floor.

Speaking of a Drive Dragon, I have heard that it’s the strongest monster within the 23rd-33rd floor range.
A Drive Dragon is resistant to all attributes; however, it doesn’t matter to me as I can use Thunder magic.
It’s strong. Strong, indeed.
A dragon must be feared.

Because the monsters don’t become incredibly stronger immediately upon reaching the 34th floor, it can be deemed acceptable.

“With our opponents being the Drive Dragons, the battles will be prolonged. Will you be alright?”
“Both Miria and Vesta are doing well, so there won’t be any problem.”

When I try to confirm, comes a reply from Roxanne.
Do you mean there won’t be any problem for the vanguards?
Or, do you mean there won’t be any problem for you, Roxanne?

“Alright, desu.”
“I think there won’t be any problem.”

So, it’s alright, huh?

“Originally, the battles take even longer, so there shouldn’t be any problem.”

As Sherry said, even the longest of our battles is actually short by the standards.
I have Grand Wizard; I can cast dual spells thanks to Grand Wizard and Jobless; I can augment it via Overdrive; We’re strong due to top equipment and level ups; et cetera.
We’ve become quite strong.

“If I were to give up at merely this, I wouldn’t be worthy of being Master’s party member- no, I wouldn’t be worthy of stepping foot in a labyrinth.”

Roxanne, I want you to not raise the hurdle (bar) excessively high.

“I have heard that the battles in the labyrinths are incredibly difficult. The extent as of now can surely not be it, right?”
“It’s all thanks to Master that the duration of battles is short. Before evasion or anything, the battle comes to an end.”
“Err, well. As you have heard, the battles are generally more difficult.”

Sherry answers Rutina’s doubts.
Make sure you don’t get misled by Roxanne’s remarks.

We return to the 32nd floor and retry the boss battle.
The Firebird doesn’t seem to be problematic either.
In any case, we have Miria’s petrifaction.
Miria-sama-sama. (TN: Yes, twice the honorific)

I have an impression that a Firebird may be easier than a Drive Dragon.
Even though it’s a boss.
Actually, if we looked only at the duration of battle, it would be long in case of a Firebird.
If we compared individually, a Firebird would be superior to a Drive Dragon.

However, because the Firebird is a boss, it shows up by itself.
Well, two monsters accompany it, too, but they’re not worth mentioning.
The boss can be left in Roxanne’s care. Close to the boss is positioned Sherry, the job of whom is to keep the boss from using area of effect magic attack, ready to strike Incantation Interruption any time.

Moreover, if it’s just one monster, it can be petrified immediately by Miria.

In contrast, there’s a possibility of the maximum number of Drive Dragons – six – appearing.
Between one Firebird and six Drive Dragons, Drive Dragons should be tougher, no?
In case of six opponents, I cannot leave all of them to just Miria.
Assuming the vanguards can pin three of them down, if the Drive Dragons were four or more, they would finish on top.

Abandoning the boss battle and fighting on the 33rd floor is, of course, not an option.
I’m also afraid of the Drive Dragons shooting area of effect magic attacks.
Although I wouldn’t die unless they fired in rapid succession, it hurts nonetheless.
The pain is beyond control.

“Against a Drive Dragon, Rutina will have to cast four spells in order for the number of my spells to decrease by one. On the 33rd floor, I will have to ask of you to cast four spells.”
“Understood.”

In order to fight and see a little, I give instructions to Rutina.
Since the duration of the battles against the Drive Dragons will be long, Rutina will have to cast more spells than she does now.
4-5 shots are reasonable.
If Rutina cast four spells against a Drive Dragon, the number of spells I would have to cast would reduce.

My one spell is equivalent to Rutina’s four spells. The difference is considerable, but it cannot be helped.
A Drive Dragon is resistant to four attributes.
It would be difficult for the Wizard Rutina, who could only use four attributes, to inflict much damage.

On the contrary, the damage from Thunder magic would pass on normally.
Unless you’re a Grand Wizard, you cannot use Thunder magic.
So, there shouldn’t be any problem with casting four spells on the 33rd floor.

However, in case of a Firebird Lv33, decreasing the number of spells by casting a mere four spells, which would *girigiri* hardly have any impact, will indeed be problematic.
This time, I haven’t particularly lied. It’ll decrease from an even number to an odd number; therefore, it’s all good.
When you keep doing it overly right; soon, at some point, it loses consistency, making it noticeable.
This time, I’ll have her use four spells; availing this opportunity, I’ll have her continue to use four spells until we reach a higher floor.

Thereafter, we continue to hunt, moving back and forth between the 32nd and 33rd floors.
Burdened with the responsibility of four spells, Rutina, as expected, seldom proves to be a support.
It cannot be helped.
If needed, I’ll have her consume MP recovery medicine; however, the battles aren’t as difficult for there to be any need.

On the 33rd floor, we battle a group of 2 Drive Dragons, 3 Rockbirds and a Non-rem Golem.
It’s the first group consisting of 6 monsters.
Although the maximum number of monsters in a group onward from 32nd floor is 6, since we hadn’t come across such a large group until now, the ratio seems to still be low.

There weren’t many Drive Dragons; hence, we kill them without any trouble.
I ask of Roxanne to locate a place with a lot of Rockbirds.
This time, it works.
The utility of this location seems to be unexpectedly great for futon.

“Uun, it may be better for us to explore the 33rd floor than repeat the 32nd floor boss battle.”

Suggests Sherry after I finish the group of 6 off.
Has she noticed?
However, I try my best to remain silent.
She has noticed, after all, huh?

She’s well aware.
As expected of Sherry.

“Even though the Drive Dragons are the main constituent, I would like the Rockbirds to be the main target.”

No sooner, I state the reason as to why this strategy hasn’t been adopted.
Concurrently implying that it had been considered already.
I can think that much, too.
In other words, excuses can be prepared, too.

“Is that even so?”
“I see. Will that give me more experience than having a Drive Dragon as an opponent?”

Sherry responds strangely while Roxanne shows motivation.

“I’d like to have the Rockbirds as the main constituent on this floor. When we move to a higher floor, we can earn as much experience as we like.”
“Oh, is that so?”
“To not have any trouble in moving to a higher floor, we have to persevere here. That’s the plan, I think.”

This time, to persuade Roxanne, Sherry puts forth a fair reasoning.
It’s difficult to convince both of them at the same time.

“Is Rockbird the reason for killing whichever monster comes out, be it a Drive Dragon, a Rockbird or whatnot?”

Please don’t sound like a mother reproving her child’s unbalanced diet.

“If that’s how it’s gonna be, then let’s fight on the 33rd floor.”

That’s Sherry for you. The calm thinker Sherry.

“As for the spells, Rutina, when there are four Drive Dragons or more, can you please let me know if you can cast?”
“Yes, Roxanne-ane-sama.”
“I think if the Rockbirds are the main constituent, Rutina will be able to fight using spells; if the Drive Dragons are the main constituent, then I can fight.”

Roxanne concludes the talks on her own and lets me know.
Albeit for short, it was nice knowing the 32nd floor boss.

I think so too, but it seems they only will rest with the use of a dartgun and copious amounts of Sedatives. Anyone of you working at a Zoo?

It seems their honour won’t let them rest until they hit the Chapterwall. This will be in 7 Days… All we can do is hope they don’t break too much until then.

Mranon, once again you did us a solid! Even one of these a day saves me a defeated and fruitless day of needing to search for additional reading material. And the days you release more than once are better than morning coffee. Better than morning coffee. It was important so I said it twice. Thanks for continuing to be epic! ^.^

Thanks for the chapter!

Is it just me, or did Michio try to avoid mentioning that he wants to farm the rockbirds for feathers? I can’t remember if he told the girls that was the plan last chapter or not.

Jack Trowell
Guest

Yes he did mention that he wanted to make a big futon for all of them, they even bought the needed fabric, he is just as usual insecure about what he wants and fear being seen as less than perfect by his harem.

Ho and thanks for the chapter, I have never seen a week last so long. ^_^

Thanks for the chapter! i cant help but wonder when they’ll show the entire groups levels again, its been some time and some of them like Sherry should be nearing 50 since hero/wizard/explorer all hit 50 now, curious if there’s a new job upgrade soon

masu
Guest

Michio level 20x faster then they do most of the time, so it may be awhile before they reach level 50 (well, since they are climbing floors quickly now they will be getting a lot more xp) I would estimate sherry is around level 40-42. She might start leveling quickly after floor .. what was it? 34 were all monsters were previous bosses?

BobTheEverLiving
Guest

Yup, next level. I believe the dragons also give extra exp but don’t quote me on that. I think the exp spiked after 11 and 22 so it should start rolling in at 34.

I don’t think it was too far outside Micho’s normal tangents. Michio can get fairly emo at times.

I wanna see others level up to 50. When will that happen? I don’t mean to press on the translation. I just wanna know out of curiosity n what happens when they level up to 50, new jobs will be available that’s why.
Thanks for the hard work!
I hope y’all get some rest soon. Even though m commenting for a new chapter tomorrow. My actions r contrary to my words.

The word “constituent” is awkward here as the word is usually used in the context of politics. The much simpler word “target” is a better choice.

I forgot what does a Drive Dragon drops…was it mention already?
Only the Carp which drops a worm and liver stuff,right?

Maelstrom

Chicken Skin… Don’t try to understand… It is called Dragon skin, but it is to be put in soup to make the soup taste better. So Michio has direct understood, what the Item is. The Author loooooves his Food.

Thanks for your hard work!

So a thought occurred (as unusual as that may be). Shouldn’t the main character try to get a female human slave and… help… her get the human racial job? Assuming of course that it doesn’t require females to have multiple, male partners.

Maelstrom
Guest

This would obviously go against the subconscious reasoning of the author.
What this is? Easy:
All females can have looots of Sex with him without protection, because they can’t get pregnant. Also they are all Fantasy Character which makes it easier to accept slavery.
The webnovel is held extreme shallow, but this is not necessary a bad thing.

BobTheEverLiving
Guest

Umm, why? [Increased Vigor] is a skill not an effect. Only effects help the party. I think Vesta’s Dragon Knight job might be helping out some with it’s effect increasing endurance.
Or maybe my mind went in different direction from you.

Maelstrom
Guest

What I mean is, he won’t have a human Slave girl, because this would introduce the risk of pregnancy. I don’t think the author will go that route. All of the other girls can’t get pregnant. So the author will not add a human.

Frascione
Guest

if he wants an excuse to not move up to another floor why can’t he simple say that he want to gather more feathers for the futon?

Maelstrom
Guest

Because he can’t set his foot down. He goes mostly with the flow. I think if Roxanne and Sherry would suggest to buying a Castle, he would not even try to reason with them and just nod.

Kortodo
Guest

Then again, it’s not like he can’t afford one. If he needs money, he can just max out crystal multiplier skill and farm the lower levels where he can 1 hit kill everything.

But I know what you mean. Though there is probably one thing that could make him put his foot down. If they said no to the nightly ritual, that’s when he’d get serious (that, or fall to the lowest depths of despair). That’s probably the only thing he really cares about.

Thanks for the chapter. “After petrifying a Rockbird, Miria joins in on the attack.” <- I didn't notice with the golems, but this is surreal. "Miria-sama-sama. (TN: Yes, twice the honorific)" <- It seems that the double honorific is used in two cases: for well-respected queens (translated as "Our gracious […]") and for people or things that have bestowed graces or favour upon the speaker. In my country, when we say that "there will be another Gomorrah", we mean something like Las Vegas gone south, a city of sin. The story of Gomorrah goes like this: Abraham (from the Bible)… Read more »
