The Black Knight’s black armor cracked and then clung tightly to itself, making it look as if it was covered in scrap iron, its fingers tattered, and its hips bent more like a beast than before.
In his hand is a sword that is a little smaller when it was still a Black Knight.
And its body had become a little smaller, about two meters.
The only thing is that its strength seems to have been condensed into its body, making it even more powerful, and we can see the magic power gushing out of its body.
“Gyeee!” (Black Knight)
The voice it raised was definitely that of a beast.
New words come to my mind. It was the same except for us, but some of the people here were surprised.
“ERROR” “ਅਨਾਦਿ ਦਰਦ Gan Ceann”
The word “ERROR” and the garbled word “ਅਨਾਦਿ ਦਰਦ Gan Ceann” were there, indicating a malfunction.
And then the boss’s unique name appeared.
It suddenly shook, and with a thud, its head fell to the ground. At the same time, the head of the silver armored explorer that was closest to him flew off.
Next to that is Gan Ceann, who is in a position to swing its sword.
The place where his head had been a moment ago was empty, just black mist floating in the air. [T/N: Fun fact Gan Ceann is another name for Dullahan or literally “without a head”. He’s from Irish folklore and featured in a ton of games, movies, and printed media. BTW. I still can’t find a dragon named Rimdobmur or something close to it.]
“Gugugga.” (Gan Ceann)
The head that had fallen to the ground was picked up by the body while letting out a weird sound. After completing the series of weird actions, the heroes and many others are regained their focus.
And they understand it well. One of their friends was killed at a speed they couldn’t even follow with their eyes.
From that point on, it was a hellish scene of screaming and shouting. One by one, the Strongest Party in Japan was forced to move back for safety, and the bravest ones stood in front of the group and before they knew it, they were being killed. One by one, then two of the silver-armored men acting as vanguards escaped, and five were killed in battle. The rearguard had all fled, and there was no one left. And just now, the last of the vanguards were killed.
At the moment when Gan Ceann’s sword tried to swing towards the Hero Party, a bolt of light blocked it.
“I will not let you kill any more of my friends. I’m not sure how much weight you think human life carries.” (Yuki)
Yuki, the leader of the Hero Party who should have been moved to the back. He stands up to the assault like a hero. Stupidly, believing in a chance at victory.
“Brother, its Fighting Power is at 300. And its Fighting Power hasn’t diminished!” (Haru)
300 is still understandable. The Goblin King was probably more powerful. Still, its Fighting Power has not decreased.
“Don’t they evolve by shaving off their life force?” (Kei)
“Maybe it’s because of the ‘ERROR’? What should we do, brother?” (Haru)
On the contrary, I calm myself after seeing the Haru being agitated, and for the time being, I took out a potion. When you drink a potion, your nausea can subside and so can the agitation.
“Haru drink a potion too. Let’s make an escape route for them for now, okay?” (Kei)
I reached into the item pouch at my waist and pulled out an item.
“The staff at that time?” (Haru)
Haru looks calmer after she drank a potion.
What I have in my hand is the cane we got after hunting Treants. A gnarled wooden staff with an amber jewel containing a magic circle inside it.
“What was it called?” (Kei)
I mumbled to myself as I used [Material Cognition] to the wand, and as usual, the words appeared in my mind.
“The Guardian Staff of the Saintess.”
It was the first weapon with a unique name that we had acquired. We hadn’t paid much attention to it because we couldn’t use it, but this staff, when used by someone who could, was stronger than any weapon we had.
I focused only on the amber and the result when I used [Inspection].
And the magic circle floating in it. At first, I thought it was just a normal magic circle.
I haven’t seen anything other than that wand, which has a different performance from ordinary magic circles, which cannot be made using our Crafting skills.
“It’s a great source of funding, though.” (Kei)
“Well, they say human life is valuable, right?” (Haru)
“I’ll call it an investment, but they should at least do their part.” (Kei)
I mumbled to myself as I attached a stone with a trash skill to this staff and released it.
Even if after everyone else escaped, one of the Hero Party is trying to join Yuki, the woman with Heal proficiency.
Yuki just wields his sword against the Gan Ceann. Its speed has already exceeded the limit of its level, and it does not even allow anyone to support him from behind.
The good thing is that Gan Ceann is wrapped in madness and only targets people closest to Yuki-kun.
Behind him, I could only watch Yuki-kun’s battle anxiously, relieved that I would not be the first to be killed.
The other vanguard, Gouta, also moves slowly because of the heavy armor he wears, so he can’t join the battle.
I thought that if we escaped, Yuki-kun would be able to escape at the right moment, but I soon realized that it was impossible.
I think Yuki-kun is being toyed by it. His sword never hits Gan Ceann, they are all parried by a light swing of its sword. Nevertheless, Yuki-kun’s body is covered with countless cuts.
At this rate, everyone will die.
It was when I thought about those words. No, maybe it was more accurate when I was convinced of it.
Anyway, that was the time,
A staff rolled under me, who belongs to the Hero Party and has Heal Proficiency.
I was surprised and turned around to the one who dropped it, but there was only the path and nobody was there.
Gently I touch the cane. A gnarled wood and a reddish jewel that looked like it came from a fantasy novel. I’m sure this jewel is called amber.
I took the staff in my hand and noticed a small stone on it, which I wiped off with my hand.
“What is this?” (Risa)
As soon as my hand touches the stone, words appear in my mind. This is the description of the wand.
“The Guardian Staff of the Saintess… gives the magical power a holy attribute [Sanctuary]”
“Guauer” (Gan Ceann)
Gan Ceann’s screams of madness regained my focus, and I saw Yuki-kun, who backed away from Gan Ceann for a moment. There’s distance is a small gap in his defense that can be used with just a small step. Yuki-kun seems to have difficulty even moving, his body now covered with large wounds. But then. Something burst from within me.
So I cried. Swinging the Guardian Staff before I caught up with my thoughts, I just followed my instincts.
“Protect Yuki-kun! [Sanctuary]!” (Risa)
My voice echoed in this place where there are only four of us left.
When Gan Ceann slashed at Yuki-kun, who was already having difficulty moving, and its body got nearer in my eyes, a translucent barrier shining in bright red spread out and blocked the sword.
There’s a big crack in the barrier, but it doesn’t look broken.
With no time to think, I swung the Guardian Staff of the Saintess again.
“[Area] [Stamina Heel]” (Risa)
The cave is filled with light again, and this magic, has a distinctly different potency than before, I relieved the exhaustion from Yuki and my friends within the area.
“Everyone, run away!” (Risa)
“I understand. [Inferno]” (Arisu)
Gun Seen was confused by the sudden appearance of the barrier, but quickly understood and hit the barrier with his sword. The cracks spread easily, but suddenly a large flame spreads across its vision.
It brushes it away with its hand, but the flames that seem to cling to it never leave its sight.
By the time it had used its skills to extinguish the glowing red barrier along with the abominable flames, there was no one in sight, let alone in Gan Ceann’s detection range.
“Gugya Gyoa!” (Gan Ceann)
It shouted like a madman in anger that its prey had escaped. However, it seems that its crazy thoughts were simple, and it forgot about the prey it had let escape, and immediately began to walk in search of the prey he could find.
It was at that time.
“We’ll do something about him. If we let it move around any longer, the Tokyo Dungeon will be destroyed.” (Kei)
“Yep. I don’t want to lose to a crazed monster. I didn’t care about the people who died, this will be a battle for mourning!” (Haru)
The “Real” Strongest Party has begun to move.
