Disruption (Magic Breaker)

(The ability to cancel magic with one's left hand.)

Next morning Yuuto went to the adventurer's guild and handed in the items before he checked with Emilia if there were newly added quests.

Hello, Yuuto-sama's QR has been promoted to 12. Would you like to look at the newly added quests?

………Yes, please.

When Yuuto agreed, Emilia opened the thick book.

Subjugation Quest


●Subjugation of Orc
Required QR
 12
Completion Criteria
 Subjugate 10 Orcs
Reward
 2000 rea & 10 QP
Repeatable
 Yes

●Subjugation of Wild Bear
Required QR
 12
Completion Criteria
 Subdue 2 Wild Bears
Reward
 2000 rea & 10 QP
Repeatable
 Yes
  
●Subjugation of White Birds
Required QR
 12
Completion Criteria
 Subdue 2 White Birds
Reward
 2000 rea & 10 QP
Repeatable
 Yes

Three new subjugations were added, of which there were 2 monsters that he hadn't fought before, but he could easily imagine their appearance from their names.

Of the newly added quests, wild bears and white birds can be found in the area called Lownas Grasslands. Lownas Grasslands is more than 4 hours away from Expein on foot. I recommend using vehicles such as a carriage to get there.

A carriage……?

This became troubling. If the higher difficulty quests have such a long commute, he can't go on them very often. After a lot of hardship, it has reached the point where a vehicle is recommended. The fact that the fare for the carriage is money lost from the subjugation quests was a pain. Yuuto decided to leave the adventurer's guild to look for another solution.

Oh! Lad! Sorry, I'm a bit busy right now.

Appraisal

(A skill that determines the rarity of equipment and items. Demon Eyes is the superior version of this.)

The place Yuuto headed towards next to was the guild recognized store managed by Adolph.

Huh. What are you doing today, Adolph-san?

Adolph usually sat in a chair behind the counter, but today he was tweaking some kind of a machine with a large spanner.

Awawa, this? This is an air bike, a type of vehicle that runs on the power of a Wind Magic Stone. Because an acquaintance requested, I'm repairing it. But……I'm not really a utility man.

Adolph moved to the table, smiling wryly as he took out something out of a sack. It was a pair of shoes.

Dragon Skin Boots
 Rarity ☆☆☆☆☆
(Boots made from tanned dragon skin. It has excellent fire and wind resistance.)


Ah. I was able to successfully bid for the item that you asked for at the auction!

Earlier, when Yuuto had successfully auctioned the Sword of Usurper King that he got from the vampire, Guiche Bellstein, he had asked Adolph to get the item.

Oh, right! I also got the Sacrificial Rings.

Sacrificial Ring
 Rarity ☆☆☆☆
(The ring receives one fatal damage. After which the ring is destroyed.)

These 3 items cost 250,000 rea including the commission. If you have it one you, I don't mind it if you equip them here.

Thank you. I'll use it carefully.

After Yuuto took out the gold coins from the bag to pay for them, and then decided to put on the dragon skin shoes. It was not bad. The cheap shoes he had been wearing till now weren't close to being as comfortable as it.

By the way, Adolph-san, can anyone drive this vehicle called an air bike?

Yes, you don't need a license, but…… Say, lad. Are you interested in an air bike?

Eeh, yes. It’s my first time seeing one, but I think it’s cool.

The air bike that looked like a vehicle that came right out of a science fiction movie was something that Yuuto had never seen before. Firstly, even though it was a bike, it had no wheels. The vehicle hovered over the ground and moved due to the wind created by the Wind Magic Stone. Even though it was powered by Wind and its entire body was lightweight, it had a design that appealed to a man.

Oh! You lad must have a good eye to notice its good quality!  The air bike requires an initial investment, but it can move faster than a carriage and is more comfortable. Many high ranked adventurers love to use it.

………I see, is that so?

He might have gotten some good information. As the degree of difficulty for quests increases, the chances of a long travel increases. If they had to pay carriage fees every time, they might as well buy an air bike from the very beginning.

If you are interested, should I introduce you to a shop run by an acquaintance? You could get it cheaper if you say that I sent you.

Seriously!?

He took up Adolph's offer upon insisting. The real estate agent that Adolph had introduced before was a good choice. And then Yuuto sold the Thief's Knives that he obtained at the Cait Sith Village for 7 gold coins and headed towards that shop that Adolph directed him towards.

  1. It felt a little too in your face convenient that he immediately found an airbike. If they had added a few chapters of him traveling to the mission areas and then find out about the motorcycle it would have been more natural.

    1. Well, he kind of was worried about travel time when he went to the Cait Sith Village area. But I have to say, it kind of came out of the left field for me too, and I'm translating it!

    2. Honestly this being a harem OP fantasy story I'm not really looking for supreme storytelling but this was a little too convenient.

    3. If you think about the world to work like an MMO or RPG, he is getting close to the need mount to effectively explore point.

      In many games, around when that point is reached, there will be a "convenient" intro to the mount/ride event.

    4. Mah... I don´t even see why he needs a vehicle to begin with.
      One of the cat girls has already tamed a dragon able to fly, right?
      He could simply take her along on his quests and use that dragon as mount.

    5. Author projects his bad memory onto his character.

    6. I'd prefer not wasting chapters on mundane stuff like travel. The only reason there was a travel issue in the first place is because the author wanted to give the main character an air bike.

  2. This is why he should have killed that demon with the teleport skill... he messed up there... All badass MCs need the teleport skill xD... and the space storage(which he already got)
    And he forgot to buy 2 more Sacrificial Rings, maybe he'll do it later when he gets more money?
    Thank you so much for the chapter... :)
