The day we decided to observe the mercenary group’s defeat of Rimdobmur. We had come down to the forest to get the parts of Rimdobmur as usual.
“All right, let’s start by hunting the small fry without using magic.” (Kei)
Since we have not succeeded in defeating Rimdobmur, we do not get any experience points even if we destroy a part. However, since we have to use all our magical power to destroy a part of Rimdobmur, we are only hunting small fires without using magical power.
The location is the entire Forest. The Forest was so large that even with both of us siblings’ speed, several hours would have passed by the time we made it around the Forest.
A normal explorer would not be able to stay focused for such a long time, so we would have to take breaks. I don’t know if I should say it’s terrible, but we used to long hours of combat and being under pressure of fighting monsters.
I’ve been running and hunting for several hours non-stop. It’s a trick that I wouldn’t have been able to do without the status I’ve gained.
And this is my current status.
Proficiency: Magic / Craft
Magic Attribute: (Fissure) Explosion (Electric)
Magic Capacity: 190
Skills: Analysis, Magic Bullets, Rampage, Magic Synthesis
Magic: Bomb, Time Bomb, Impact, Number, (Plasma), (Fissure), (Separation), Barrier, (Collapse)
Passive: Magic Recovery / Detection / Crafting / Magic Manipulation / Dual Attribute
Although we hadn’t leveled up in a while, we are almost at level 80. Looking at it, I think a three-figure level is still far away, but that’s probably too much to hope for. Even at this level, the small fries around here are giving us nothing. Moreover, it’s getting harder and harder to level up from beating the monsters here.
If you look at what people are saying on social media, they’re saying they got injured by a bunch of monsters. There are words like that circulating.
Even the monsters we call small fries are dangerous monsters in the eyes of other people. So maybe we’re being too cautious.
“We’ll get to the next boss before we get to really dangerous monsters, right?” (Hru)
“I think that’s because we are prioritizing food and material collection more than leveling.” (Kei)
“Yeah, that could be it.” (Haru)
We both have a weakness for good food, probably because we lived in poverty for a while. If there is a tasty ingredient, we will go hunting for it, ignoring the strategy.
On top of that, Haru tends to get carried away when she finds something interesting, and I like to strengthen my weapons as much as possible. It seems we’re both very particular about things like that.
“But even though there are a lot of monsters and it’s hard work, the strength of the individual monsters is weak.” (Kei)
“Well, there are only two of us though.” (Haru)
In our case, the usual party of four is reduced to two. If you try to fight in the same place with just yourself, you might not be able to compete with a monster unless you raise your level to the point that the monster that you normally struggle against becomes a small fry.
That’s how big the difference is between a party of two and a party of four, and it makes you realize the power of numbers.
I wonder what would happen if the dungeon didn’t have a four-person limit. It might have been normal for 100 people to charge into a boss battle.
“Hmm, that’s the last of them.” (Haru)
There seems to be another monster in the first place we passed, but there’s no point in trying to kill it, so we ignore it and stand at the entrance of the forest.
“Come on, let’s start.” (Kei)
I thrust out my hand as usual, and magic power gathered there.
I used my Enchantment on Haru’s [Liquid Magic] that Haru summoned, and I mixed our magic together using [Domination]. Using, [Intangible Armor], which is my Treasure Tool, I made it harder, sharper, and more powerful.
“Brother, the precision of the attack has improved recently, and we can now choose which part to destroy.” (Haru)
“So, legs or wings?” (Kei)
Haru smiled and patted her neck.
“If we aim at the neck well, can we kill it with a single blow? The neck is not that strong, isn’t it?” (Haru)
It was true that Rimdobmur’s body was hard and covered with scales, but the scales on the parts that needed to be moved, such as the feet and the base of the wings, were less dense. That’s what we noticed by looking at its legs from the dropped parts repeatedly.
And it was probably the same for the neck. Even if it wasn’t powerful enough, if we gouged out half of it, it wouldn’t be able to support itself and would die. Even if we could only gouge out a third of it, it would most likely bleed to death before it could escape back to its nest.
“OK. Do you want to try it?” (Kei)
Haru controlled her magic power to make her [Liquid Magic] denser. In addition to the magic I’ve been using, I’m using my [Positioning] skill to make my aim more precise.
The speed at which Rimdobmur flies in the sky is constant. The forest is large and it does not switch directions much.
“Let’s go, Haru!” (Kei)
“Ready, brother!” (Haru)
“”3. 2. 1. Go!”” (Kei & Haru)
The magic flew straight up, with a slight deviation, but using the skill [Positioning], it was precisely adjusted to head for Rimdobmur’s neck.
“Did we get it?” (Haru)
“Well, I don’t think it’s dead from based on its reaction.” (Kei)
The magic exploded noiselessly, enveloping Rimdobmur. But the reaction of Rimdobmur has not disappeared. Unfortunately, it seems that it didn’t die instantly.
A roar that made the air tremble echoed. It was the usual cry of Rimdobmur. But this time it means that our attack on its neck did not even reach its vocal cords.
Something glittering descended from the black shadow created by the magical explosion.
A horrifying amount of magical power engulfed us. No, it enveloped the entire forest. All at once, the reaction of the monsters around us shifted away from here.
“Uh, what. What is this?” (Haru)
“Let’s run away for the time being.” (Kei)
This magic power is clearly different from the reactions of the Rimdobmur so far. An amount of magic that makes even the magic that we poured every bit of our magical power laughable.
Even the black shadow in the sky is swallowed by the magical power and changes its shape like a tornado. The movement looked as if everything was being sucked into the center. We were on the lookout for it in the center of the forest, and we ran into the cave that was the entrance to the Forest. We stood in front of the magic circle of transition and turned our eyes toward the Forest.
A resounding boom echoed. What fell while knocking down the trees in the forest was a light green ball. It was probably about five meters in diameter. It seemed to say, “I’ll show you something”.
Then it hits the ground and explodes.
Winds that far surpassed one from typhoons rushed into the cave, and something that flew in the wind gouged my cheek.
Once we look at the forest again the wind just stops.
“Wow, seriously!” (Kei)
“Seriously, what happened?” (Haru)
It was no longer a forest. All the trees in the area visible from the back of the cave had been uprooted. There stood Rimdobmur, who was cladded in a horrifying film of magical power.
“Okay, let’s run away.” (Kei)
I quickly channeled my magic power into the magic circle and began the transfer. As we were transferring, a small green sheet flew at me and gouged out my cheek, before hitting it hits the cave wall.
We then returned to the first floor.
Yes, this is how we got our hand on it. A material that would create a weapon far superior to even the weapons of the brave.
The Siblings finally embark on a serious capture of Rimdobmur.
