Day 228

Day 228

Today, we leave the Royal Capital. We’re a party of 9 demons: me and the 【8 Demon Generals】.

Redhead is staying behind to take care of Opushii, who has recently reached the phase where she started crawling. Redhead’s body is not yet in normal condition. Seeing as we’re going to a faraway place and it’s cold outside, I told her to stay inside.

Auro, Argento and Oniwaka also seem to want to challenge the place.

Since we don’t know anything about the dungeon we’re attempting to conquer, we can’t afford it. If it’s too difficult, these three will surely become a burden.

On top, we don’t have a base in the Atarakua Demon Empire yet.

I’m not sure if the security there is similar to the degree of safety in the Sternbild Kingdom. It might not be. It would be the worst if they’re taken hostage, and there’s even the possibility of them being killed.

Therefore, I leave them behind this time. There are the other members as well.

Since we can still keep in touch through the ear cuffs, we’ll be leaving either way. Since the Tomboy Princess also left a liaison, I don’t worry too much.

And with that, we leave the Royal Capital.

Looks like there’s a group at the gate that’s come to see us off. There were the Tomboy Princess and Boy Knight, as well as the First Queen and the Hero of Darkness.

There are persons waving sadly, and a lot of people are asking for various souvenirs.

As we’re being seen off by everyone, we leave on the Skeleton Centipede.

After we advanced a bit in our departure, and I confirmed that there’s no one in our neighborhood, we get off the skeleton centipede.

It’ll be a longer journey than last time.

If we were traveling by a normal carriage, we’d need a month to cover the distance. Even with a skeleton centipede, quite some time is needed. And since I’d like to minimize the travel time as much as possible, we transfer from the skeleton centipede to a special one.

It’s a version the skeleton centipede I made first, but took some time to remodel it. The result is a Skeleton Centipede that’s almost 3 times the size.

It’s a lot bigger than a semi-trailer. Does that make it easier to picture it?

In order to keep them apart in the future, let’s call this remodeled carriage a Great Skeleton Centipede.

The Great Skeleton Centipede makes for a comfortable trip since it’s equipped with a lot of different features to make life easier.

Not even mentioning the single beds, it not only has a kitchen counter, a refrigerator and washing machine, but it’s also fully equipped with a restroom and a bath.

Aside from being able to just live here, it’s on a level where you can live in an environment that’s far superior compared to general private houses. You could say that the Great Skeleton Centipede is, in other words, something like a huge camper.

It can move and transform itself for self-defense. You might call it a moving fortress?

And with that, we continued riding on the Great Skeleton Centipede today.

There’s no need to stop regularly now, because you can cook, wash and go to the bathroom on the Great Centipede. We pass the time during the day by studying or playing and while we’re sleeping at night, we advance.

We’re going to the destination in a straight line wherever possible. Any obstacle is traversed and we keep on going forward.

There’s a forest and a valley en route that’s dominated by monsters. I worried that we’d be attacked while we were progressing, but it never happened.

They’re likely overwhelmed by the size, speed and grotesqueness of the Great Skeleton Centipede. Then again, it’s also coated with 【Hiding】, which might have had its effect.

It looks like we might be arriving earlier than expected.
