Day 301Edit

NEEDS EDITING, the Russian --> English is missing lines and content, double check with the Google Translation at the bottom. ~Miraclegrass

Partly edited for grammatical and semantic clarity 9/18 ~ SOP

Partially Edited sentences in order to make sense, although im new ill try it to make some sense -Agf2896

Just FYI, the Google Translate is better, the Rewording deleted too much word and made less sense, leaving lot of sentence half way done. - (Reader)

Japanese --> Russian --> English

Day 301

After spending the night in one of the last safe havens located nearby, in the early morning, we resumed our conquest of 【Ship Ambrasm Pontus】.

The 【Ship Ambrasm Pontus】, like most of the previous dungeons, depending on the location, the interior differs considerably from the previous levels.

The higher the level, the richer the interior, as befitting of an ocean liner. At the same time, the water level is deeper in this area and is actually quite close to the bottom. Sacrificing the temple, the interior is like sinking in the ocean floor.

The walls here are almost always wet, thus, covered with poisonous colored moss, like somewhere in a cave under a waterfall. Here and there, I heard the cries of fanatics bowing down before the statue of the evil god with an octopus head, emitting a purplish glow, while still stinking like a huge pile of rotten fish.

Frankly, we can say that the whole【Ship Ambrasm Pontus】 is a place mostly flawed.

There are almost no traps here, because treasure chests are quite hard to find here, and the magic item's quality are generally low.

Note - not sure what this sentence actually refered to - Agf2896

Don't worry, I got you :3 - [IC]

In general, it would be much more profitable to skip this place and go on.

Here we are only slowly moving along this zone.

Of course, if it's only the conquest, one of us would be enough to get through.

Fortunately there is I, Kanami-chan, Avenger and company, so from the point of view of a fighting force, we have more than enough.

In addition, I was able to get a map, as this dungeon has been explored for quite some time, and though it is not quite complete, it has about 80 percent of the dungeon.

Talking of dried out, I know the location of the dungeon, as well as the shortest route to them.

So, if no unforeseen incidents occur we may seize the【Ship Ambrasm Pontus】.

But since this time Auro and Argento, as well as Redhead and Opushii are with us, I decided to use our family trip to the dungeon for training.

Well, although it is a family camping trip, we were missing some members, yes, we will have fun with them a little differently.

Because, despite the fact that this place is quite defective, due to the fact that most of the monsters here are in groups of no more than 3, as well as the benefit of experience with them being slightly higher, this area is very convenient for us.

Especially because here you can almost always fight one on one, thereby reducing the cases where our intervention is necessary.

Yet, if we begin to weaken the monsters, or reduce their number, the children will get to experience much less. So it is much better if they are left to cope with the enemy themselves.

So we went far enough away that we could come to their aid at any moment, while embracing my favorite Opushii ,watching the brave battles of Redhead and company, glad that everything is becoming more difficult and at the same time worrying about them.


Auro's Point of View

For the first time I see the ocean.

Translucent ocean waters seem to stretch into infinity.

Yet at the same time, for him to say, there are other continents, unimaginable worlds increasingly pique my interest.

I learned of this only a day ago. And at that moment I had new ambitions. I will seek these out. They are somewhere here on this earth.

Well, let us leave aside these ambitions. It is good that we were able to see the incredibly beautiful ocean and slowly enjoy the sightseeing of the【Labyrinth City】, 【Dur Gha Varia

As expected there is a completely different living environment, different culture, different levels of technology.

The manners of life, food, and culture, here you can find a variety of unknown things for me.

Especially since I have not seen these types of cities, which in itself is very interesting and fun.

However, it was very disappointing that at this time, mom or Oniwaka was not with us.

A stay in such a beautiful place, and without mother and the others, it seems a little in vain.

However with the presence of our dad, who I don't want to fight, the beautiful and kind aunt Kanami, strictly wraps aunt Rubellia, as well as my half brother Argento, my dear sister Opushii, and same time helps with the training Avenger and company.

So that's all right.

Moreover, dad said that we willl come here again together in the future.

For now, we need to have some fun with all our heart and then all arrange a tour.

The next day, we all sat on the boat are not great, we went to a gigantic merchant shipsShip Ambrasm Pontus】that is huge like a mountain . This is our first experience in the conquest of the 【Age of the Gods dungeon】.

Perched on the anchor inside, it was clear that this is different from dad's 【Age of the Gods dungeon】.

The intense specific atmosphere.

The feeling that someone has set his sights on your life.

The surrounding air is saturated with hostility.

Enemies hidden away in the shadows.

In dad's dungeons, I felt a certain peace of mind.

But here in this place, since it has not been conquered, the feeling is not there.

The lack of guaranteed security for me and Aru is heavy.

Alone, we would have been killed here almost instantaneously. We can say that we are small fry. It is not a place where we are allowed to challenge.

But father and the rest of us, are always ready to help, so we were able to get combat experience.

By reducing the number or weakening the enemies, the amount of experience gained will be reduced. Since the enemies are stronger than us, the experience gained is still a lot and our levels are growing quite fast.

Above needs work, I get it but its to Yoda

In addition, eating the meat of the opponents whose bodies did not have time to disappear after the battle, due to the effect [Eater of Sacred Beasts], the efficiency increases significantly.

As a result, our strength has increased dramatically in comparison with the moment we arrived here.

But still, we are still too early to be in this place. I think that we need to gain experience in the world above. Dad could quickly conquer this place and then we'd have to train.

Yet, my father said that "This area is great in order to raise the level of Auro and the others. Therefore. we will move slowly."

Of course, we also want to quickly become strong.

Becoming a little stronger, to stop being those who are constantly helped by dad, and to help ourselves.

But nevertheless, I think it is not necessary to do this in this area.

Here, close to the bottom of the ship, the horribly humid walls are wet and slippery and covered with slime. it's awfully nasty.

Only one kind of goosebumps.

Besides there is a terrible stink with monsters who are slimy or raw. In general, the dungeon is covered with nasty-looking slime.

In addition, each enemy is stronger than us, making it impossible to relax even for a second.

If you make a blunder, you'll be immediately killed.

We accumulated mental and physical fatigue very quickly as we continued on without talking.

The accumulated stress can be removed from the soul by blowing everything to smithereens with magic guns, so it was not really so bad.

"Sister Auro, how much longer?"

In order to support, aunt Rubellia, brother Argento, I quickly released several bullets at the enemy in front of us, [Furious Brawler (Albion)].

"Goooooooo !!!"

Came the roar of a crowded malice "Rampaging Brawler". It stands at a height of 6 meters and has an enviable physique, armed with an anchor which is suited to the race of giants.

His huge body itself is dangerous, but his huge bluish thick skinned muscles as well as bones was a natural armor that won't get damaged from conventional attacks.

Fortunately, it does not have long-range attacks, but only melee attacks. Aru and I did not have any problems fighting against it.

"Damn ... what kind of protection does it have?"

Aru was aiming at weak spots, such as the eyes, the ears, the throat, as well as the patella, in order to slow down. But as expected, the skin is too thick and the attacks are not strong enough.

We hoped to reduce it's strength by inflicting enough wounds. The resulting blood loss will eventually slow it down.

A common opponent in the current state probably would have fallen, but with his huge body, the damage we dealt is still not enough.

Because now it is still cheerfully rowdy.

"Gaaaaaaaa !!"

Being closest to the "fierce buyan" Aunt Rubellia, uttering savage roar, moving from side to side, began a fierce attack.

Evading the huge anchor and temporarily reject his shield, his thick concentrated attacks pointed sword covered with red glow on the right knee.

As expected, even a thick skin and strong muscles did not survive the blows of fighting techniques, emitting a powerful jet of blood, like a huge tree was severed Naga.

"Ki ha ... Gooooooooo"

Losing balance due severed legs "fierce brawler" finally decided to at least counter, throwing the anchor in the fall, aiming at Aunt Rubellia.

The attack was like a falling rock, only aunt Rubellia was not there.

With agility, which is envied even by animals, she had already left the area of the attack.

And though after the impact of the armature on all sides flew fragments of the stone floor, it caused no damage.

"Chchi"

This is what aunt Rubellia's said.

"Already started to recover? The same growth would have long collapsed, the big enemy is really troublesome"

In the small period when Aunt Rubellia increased distance "violent brawler" decided to restore the severed leg.

With a severed leg, he has grown back almost immediately.

It did not look quite natural, but it does not look like it hurt. Then he rose again from the state when he should lie on the ground.

At the time when he joins the leg Aru attacked with his partisan, but "violent brawler" ignored him, concentrating on regenerating.

As expected, compared to other monsters in the dungeons, he has a very developed mind.

Even in the event of an attack, it can properly assess the situation, and focus on action needed to win.

"Against the enemy of superior level lacks decisive force. In the future, will need to work on that moment."

Aunt Rubellia, superior melee "violent ruffian", more herself, height three times, without receiving damage, inflicts unilateral attack. This is certainly understandable, but still, that priodolet regeneration, and to kill him, our attacking forces are not enough.

If the level difference is too much, there's nothing you can do about it, but still it is probably not good enough.

Aunt Rubellia, dodge, mutters something, trying to process the necessary space in their attack, Aru helps her, but due to lack of decisive force, it is almost not moving.

You can say a stalemate.

Just now its my turn.

Creating a magic bullet Completed! "Give us the experience"

If it is difficult stabbed "Vicious buyano" just cause him damage, which did not arrive in time for regeneration. For example all the time to burn physique.

[Fighting techniques Auro [destroying gun] is activated]

At this time, fighting techniques include a bonus, so I do it immediately cremated.

"Hey, Aunt Rubellia as yet ..."

Aru shouted something, only even though he did not see, but Aunt Rubellia has long retreated.

In addition, before she could retreat to use fighting techniques and knock the eye "fierce Buyan".

After a while, they would still be recovered, but still, he temporarily lost his sight as a result of my chance to evade attacks has fallen even lower.

In gratitude for this, I'll cover it.

"Fire !!"

Pressing the magic gun's trigger, that my dad gave to me, a blinding flash flew out of its muzzle and a shot rang out. With the speed that is not visible to the eye, the bullet, that was made by compressing my mana, crashed into the enemy, as it is unavoidable because of the wounded legs and impaired vision.

Flames broke out like a huge torch. They were so huge, that they scorched the ceiling and the walls.

"Gee, gigaaaaaaaa"

Bathing in the bluish flame of hell, even "fierce brawler" to stand the lies.

Prominent areas of blue skin blistered from the heat, the beginning was to recover the eyes, immediately boil and burst again, take a dip in hellfire light, fry the inside, and the smell of grilled meat.

Used in this time the magic bullet, the magic creates an unquenchable flame, called the [Ancient Bullet Flash] by [Synthesis] creates flash and wind in a certain area firestorm.

After raising [Magic Gunner], including not long ago there were synthesized by a bullet, the bullet has the greatest offensive force, but also, as a bonus, I used the combat Reception [Destructive Magic Gun], as a result, its capacity has increased by 3 times

But like any living creature with its body on fire, the damage can not be avoided, even by the incredibly robust [Fierce Brawler]

"Gaaaaaa !!"

But he was still alive.

Fully covered with flames like a fire giant, [Fierce Brawler] produced a wild roar turned in my direction.

At this point, flames covering him have reached a temperature of several thousand degrees.

Due to the effect of the magic bullet to the surroundings misses the flame near as expected, quite hot heat waves.

"Fire !! Fire !!"

Hate is in principle possible, but there are limits.

Hastily stepping back by pouring the same fire bullets.

Flame temperature further increased, and the waves began to diverge around the hot air.

"Gaaaaaa AAAA AAAA !!"

Finally, unable to withstand the stress inferno, burning his limbs began to fall apart into pieces.

Leg fractures unable to withstand its own weight, and then his huge body began to fall forward. At the same time, he still had his hands, because he continued to crawl towards us. As expected it was scary, but still Aru, releasing [Arts] one by one, began to destroy his softened body.

Even when more than half of his body was burned, he was still moving, but after [Fierce Brawler] stopped moving, Aunt Rubellia dealt him the final blow.

The previous top to the bottom of the combat technique looked like a flash. The attack was so acute at the sound came only after the sword reached the goal. It looked so beautiful that it was possible to fall in love.

However, the battle against the "violent ruffian" ended.

"Okay, now ..."

After defeating "violent Buyan", I just lost my sight for a second.

That was a fatal mistake in the face of a new enemy.

"The waves of evil, destroying the psyche of r? Nasu.aburuba".

From the side of the corridor, in my blind spot, immediately after passing through my body, I flew black wave "wave of evil, destroying the psyche", belonging to the 5 range of mental magic.

Relax in front of overwhelming force, resistance is almost meaningless, and I felt as if my brain is stuck a red-hot metal rod.

Still, I managed to raise a person in order to confirm the situation. In front of me I appeared a mountain of corpses, which were not only Aru and aunt Rubellia, and all my friends.

Heavily soaked with blood, mixed with the entrails, bone fragments mixed with rotten meat.

All five senses are saying that it is not a hallucination.

"Upa"

Nausea rises from the stomach, feeling the glow of esophagus, rises to the nose.

The spectacle of death all the family has a lot of stress on the mind and the red-hot pain in the head prevents any logic.

Rather, I am now been affected by [panic] and [confusion].

Hit me "Waves destroy evil mind" has no effect on the body, but it causes a severe blow to the psyche, and entails several negative effects. I learned from the lessons of magic, so there is no doubt.

Because all I see now an illusion, as it should be.

But too realistic picture casts doubt, but I do not if this is true.

Shake it until now I can not. I can not resist the magic superimposed overwhelming force. "Ia! Mugudiangurumu"

Mount bodies, which must be an illusion. And there was an enemy to use magic.

The head, like an octopus tentacle sticking out of his mouth eager to devour the brains of all this on the body, like a man, emitting dungeon monster madness "ishshiriddo."

Body it is not particularly distinguished, but in the magic field he is very able. For those who knows, in this dungeon, a meeting with him is considered to be the worst outcome.

Speaking Honor, we have a chance to win. At the time of the meeting, his victory sealed, so his status.

"Ah, again, again. Why is again lost. How furious."

The head does not hurt. Apparently the negative effects over.

Is there a good way to vent my anger so, after watching this stupid show, and I do not hesitate to use it.

"Everything, everything, everything'll blow !!!"

Bullet born magical gun filled with manna to the limit by creating and sending it to isshiriddo, I pulled the trigger, then the overwhelming outbreak swallowed him whole.

Obarou/Yatendouji POV

I'm a little worried when soon after the battle with the "fierce Brawler" from the corridor which is in the blind spot, but there were "ishiriddo" was magic in Auro.

It seems she was terribly hurt by him without me realizing it. I rushed to help her, but as expected from my child, even under several negative effects, thanks to a strong will, she could win.

While I was glad she surpassed my expectations, growth, released insurgent Auro bullet caused the vast destruction of the surrounding environment.

Although hitting a range of Argento blown blast, yes anyway.

As expected, the kill with a single blow ishiriddo did not happen, but it has received significant damage from the blast, which he smeared on the wall.

Of course Redhead, could not miss the moment when he was still moving away from the shock, approaching him from the blind spot, she finished off successfully, immediately cut off his head.

Octopus legs ishiriddo quite tasty, because I have not forgotten immediately postpone his carcass in my Item Box.

After the meeting, over the last battle (relaxing after the victory, missed a surprise attack), I praised them for their good work. There were, of course, mistakes, but in general is not bad.

Focusing on children's education, we slowly conquered dungeon. This is how the day went.


Day 300 == Day 301 == Day 302



Google Translation

Spent a comfortable night in one of the safety zone, which are scattered in various places, it was also start the capture of [Anburasse JP-time Pontus] from early morning today.

[Anburasse JP-time Pontus] the same way as the labyrinth that has been capture up to now, such as the interior is greatly changed depending on the location.

Whereas the luxurious interior was enigmatic palace such as luxury cruise ships to be made about a millionaire who accustomed to ride in the upper layer, in the section close to the bottom of the lower than is currently capture waterline, it sank almost to the seabed and false god interior of the corridor and a small room such as a dedicate temple had spread.

The dark green of the stone walls that are wet all the time in seawater, shellfish and poisonous shades of seaweed such as barnacles is dense enough Bisshiri and creepy becomes worse.

There are many here and there false god Christian believers "Oia! Oia! "Or false god image spread the madness of the followers to likely Takoatama to say at the same time shining in dubious blue-violet, and sprinkled the odor, such as when it is ripening rotten if it were a large amount of fish.

Honest, [Anburasse Pat-time Pontus] inside it's location would be nice to say that most poor is.

Trap of the kind is easy to proceed because it is not so much placed, but it is Given Overall, including this section is poor quality of contents and drop items in the treasure chest, and the flow-through is better to capture the partition out of more profit physically and mentally also, veterans manner to also probably good.

But ours was progressing slowly over time this compartment.

Well, if only to capture, it would somehow now of the ours if push the envelope.

I have to have, because the Kana-bi chan and avenger who also there, and I say that excess Far too well as forces.

Moreover, a long month still throughout from other cheats who have capture over the have not been filled unfinished goods, but still it's already purchased a dungeon map that about 80 percent is buried.

Collects information from casual conversation to other, the route leading to the deepest that would dungeon boss is present are also able to roughly but expected already.

As long as you do not also occur in unexpected events, it will be able to accommodate the [Anburasse issue-time Pontus] by as cheats in the hands ever.

But this time much trouble Oro and Argento, then red hair short and Opushi are accompanied.

Since recently had to neglect, one or two of family services is the place to be for training that labyrinth, it would be nice down.

Well, but not all to say that family services, this time it is not the way. And as to that reward in a different form to other family members.

Property that is the environment's poor at why, dungeon monsters appear that either instead of the basically wandering in one piece, at most only a flock to three-body, get experience value is obtained little more than the other compartment this compartment there is a convenient was good.

It is possible to move to combat in an advantageous situation well Yare if a one-to-many if here, it's possible to reduce with a jerk the opportunity to help so far.

Again because ours is Oro our acquisition experience and or weaken you can reduce the number resulting in reduced, a good person who was overthrown in soil fertility is not helping as much as possible when you defeat the enemy.

Down to the distance that can be helped at any time by that, and suffer embrace the graces come Opushi, while watching the red hair short who challenge the brave bold, and I am glad that the thing that has become much stronger than with everyone before, or would be okay at the same time , was watching the fate of the battle while the nail-biting.

■ ◇ ■

For the first time to see the ocean was born.

There was filled with crystal clear seawater, thought to have first endlessly spread.

Yet it is said that there is a different continent still that not even seen the tip of the ocean, you can not even imagine it was interested in the world, just the other day things.

Only at that time, I'll say I'll go to the continent that lies ahead of this ocean someday, the ambition is that I was the moment that has embraced.

Well, such ambition Well put, it's a labyrinth city «Dur and gas-Vu~araia» facing the beautiful ocean than you think could be tourism and carefully, it is thought that it was very good.

Depending on the characteristics of the place where are living still, I because what is Toka Toka culture technology to development.

Or concerns of lifestyle, or concerns of food culture. To know that it did not know until now, it was a great opportunity. It was a structure also was not up to this was the streets, but it did very enjoy because was interesting.

However, the did not have this time mom or Oniwaka us was a very disappointing.

To make tourism a place this clean, No I think wasteful Nante there are no mothers.

Though he, to stayed Dad you are the target is thought that I'll exceed one day, say it gently in and clean Kana beauty mother-in-law mother, also wrapped in us Ruberia mother-in-law's strict, and my side of the body who are from the time you were born in it even and Al and is a counterpart of cute cute my precious sisters Opushi, because stayed revenge who's who to me tempered sometimes after, it decided to keep the Well good should.

Dad is also this time, I had to say I wonder, it will Koyo in everyone ~Tsu.

Now big time and playing, rather than give to my guide when it came in all this time Chane~tsu.

Hard as the next day enjoying the sightseeing, we mountain like a size of a ship riding in boat - boarded the [No. Anburasse-time Pontus], was to be the first time experience in the real [Jindai dungeon] .

At the same time and went in and along the anchor, it was to be understood as different from [Jindai dungeon] dad.

Such as to Hiyari, unique atmosphere.

It has been targeted life, sense.

Lurking around, a clear hostility.

It was cleverly hidden, divine to try the challenger.

The father was capture [Jindai dungeon], somewhere sense of security has been obtained.

Since here but not necessarily are still cheats, there was no its sense of security.

This is a real [Jindai dungeon flame Even, was able to understand immediately.

Promised safety is none such as cocoa is still a heavy load to Al and me.

I can think this is a just us just Kaku-jo, such as would have been killed immediately are arranged as ordinary soldiers, and. Have not yet been allowed to us even to challenge, I like that area.

But if dad who help me, and was able to experience the battle as several times.

You can us to reduce the number, experience value obtained only you can have that amount me cut the strength I probably was reduced, because the total amount of experience values obtained either because had just Kaku-jo many, stored in us if we experience will exceed the prescribed value, it increased the Gungun and level.

Is that to eat meat as much as possible before the corpse disappears after defeating In addition to that, we effectively the imposition of [eating Holy Beast] with is going to improve much more efficient capacity than normal .

We increased the strength reliably than before entering by it.

Still, because it is still too early place to us, it's to capture and dad Sassa here after we have experienced the world of top thus, I thought later to us and us with the training.

- But you know.

"Because would just say to the level-up of Oro us and if this partition, you can either let go carefully."

So, the father said.

Well, I want not strong early Even us.

It becomes strong even a little, it 's not the presence of the only guarded father who, I want to become accustomed to help.

But no I think separately's not okay 's not this compartment, and.

The compartment that I do it close to the bottom, here is to have very humid, grew and Bisshiri on the wall, barnacle? Tteyuu Forget, it is bad really feeling.

It will likely start the goose bumps just looking.

To it to smell as the nose is a fool, come out dungeon monsters also somehow to raw-ish, somehow or rather sticky, anyway I gonna even have're wet creepy bad body fluids.

Moreover, because as individuals stronger than us, can not be off guard even a little.

If poor, you'll also be probably killed instantly.

Mental stress to accumulate in the pressure, and No bear both physically.

Well, because it also serves as a stress divergence not offend even release Bukkake the fullest Ma-ho, it's not not mean to completely dislike.

"Sister Auro, still do ~Tsu"

In order to support the Redhead mother-in-law who is willing to work hard as a Single avant-garde, brother of Al releases the "Ogre Orb", Tsugae the partisans in silvery white Daiyumi was in hand, in rapid succession before the eyes of the enemy - " it is Ikake to Arakuremono Anger Albion of anger ".

"Goooo Ooooo cover !!"

"Arakuremono of anger" to roar to let Minagira is an anger, a kind of giant fighting and outstanding physical ability, which provided enough of the big frame look up that six Merutoru, an anchor, such as the ax of a size commensurate with the big frame you want to hand in weapons.

Even though a threat only the weight of the big frame correspondingly, some tough muscle and skeletal support it, and also in the armor of natural does not accept the blue chunky skin is odd attack.

We do not come to Fortunately long distance attack, still minute I bad formidable enemy in me or Al in close combat.

"Damn, out of the question defense force ~Tsu"

Though Al is aiming structurally relatively soft eye and ear, neck and easy to inflict a fatal wound, the same limb of the joints that can dampen the movement exactly, effectiveness of the attack after all skin and muscle is too thick It's bad.

To have bled reasonably in once Gusari and pierced, and is successful in inhibiting the movement slightly while.

Normal and I do not anymore to defeat even though strange if opponent's less likely to damage if from that big frame.

To have rampage cheerfully fact even now.

"Moth ah Aaaaa ~Tsu!"

In the closest location of such "anger of Arakuremono", Ruberia mother-in-law's has been attacked in freely while emits a roar like a beast.

Is lightly avoid an anchor to be swayed by the Australian speed, sometimes Ruberia mother-in-law, who is fighting while averted in [Shogun kite shield General shield] is red in love sword [Shogun large kitchen knife general chopper] in which the thick blade in white It was clothed phosphorescence, and to concentrate slashing the same portion of the right knee.

It seems did not withstand thick skin and muscles of the truly the crossfire of slashing using some kind of combat maneuver arts, I like the foot, such as the big tree that was cut while spouting the numerous fresh blood.

"Giga~tsu, Goooo Ooooo covers"

It was a been cut one leg broke the balance "of anger Arakuremono", at least one thing counterattack of the, it was swung down on him Ruberia mother-in-law's the anchor that has in its hands while lying on the ground.

It was a like a huge rock, such as has been falling blow, Ruberia mother-in-law's not already stayed there.

It is because had already fled out of attack range in the beast more agility.

Anchor is bored a cobblestone corridor, I was vigorously scatter debris, there was no other damage.

"- Pitch"

Small tut-tut was heard.

It was something Redhead's mother-in-law's was leaked.

"Huh have another begins playing. Though I be long ago Shitome and if the same degree of physique, Naa's troubling me size, really."

between slight that Ruberia mother-in-law's took a distance, "anger of Arakuremono" is made to play the cut right foot.

Stuck to cut off the site and the site forcibly, and he had stitched together in the playback force that was ridiculous.

Although there seems to be some discomfort, it is not seen as a problem to which the movement. From the state would have been lying on the ground, we've already stood up.

While stick the cut legs, but has had hard bombarded the partisans, it had priority play by ignoring some of the hit.

Is high intelligence is still compared dungeon monsters and fought in the Labyrinth dungeon far.

Even being attacked, it is moving to slaughter us to decide firmly priorities.

"The shortage decision on opponent with overwhelming stature difference, or. If you do not to future improvements."

Redhead's mother-in-law's have overwhelmed a large "anger of Arakuremono" three times more than in the proximity warfare.

It is not inflict damage at all, unilaterally and I thing evident from the fact that it was attacking, but still to murder by breaking through the regenerative capacity attack force is not enough slightly.

Though unavoidable because of too different in size, it seems it was not repugnant to.

Redhead's mother-in-law's will re-examine the points to be improved and the rash while avoiding the attack, Al I support it, I do not defeat likely quite for determining force is missing.

Situation was stalemate, I'll also say.

But, I gonna of this time what my turn ~Tsu.

"Magic bullet generation completion ~Tsu, Ageru~tsu In our experience"

If the "anger of Arakuremono" slashing and difficult to defeat in the blow, gonna once you at once burned whole body with firepower enough not keep up with playback ~Tsu.

[Auro was feeding the [Magic Cannon of Doom] Combat Arts]

This is plus also combat maneuver, Ageru~tsu be reliably cremation.

"Chopper, still Redhead mother-in-law Sanga~tsu"

But there is shouting something, Redhead mother-in-law's just there is not visible long ago retreated already.

Before you save, it went deeply dissected the eye of "Arakuremono of anger" with a combat maneuver for feeding the slashing fly.

It will be playing in a short period of time, thereby was temporarily deprived of the sight possibility "of anger Arakuremono" to avoid my attack I'll was lower with a jerk.

Thanks to such Ruberia mother-in-law's assistance.

"Fire!"

If you squeeze the trigger of the magic gun that dad gave me, from the muzzle of the magic guns roar piercing 劈 the ear along with the ignition flame muzzle flash like also dazzling eyes outpouring, it was generated in food my magic inside Madan is injected as fast as invisible, deprived of sight not differ aim, to land on the target that could not be of that move Tossa because of not foolproof right foot.

At the same time and was Nokezo~tsu big while let go the anchor by receiving a direct hit in the chest, the pale hellfire wrap the whole body of the "anger of Arakuremono".

Moreover, it is not to spread around, it is wrapped like a whole body of the "anger of Arakuremono" as armor.

Like if enigmatic giant torches, pillar of fire of enough to sear the high ceilings were ramps up.

"Formate, Giga Aaa Aaaaa ~Tsu"

In burned the whole body by pale hellfire, I so unbearable "anger of Arakuremono" also of truly.

Blue skin between see burnt sore, eyeball, which has been trying to play fly burst by boiling, lung sucked the Fire is out burning from the inside, it began to drift smell going burnt meat.

Not 鎮炎 bullets this time the selected Madan generates a magic flame indelible, world destroying conflagration wearing storm bullets that were synthesized confusion style bullets that generates a strong wind to a specific range.

Among the synthetic magic bullet just made it possible to generate recently in my [Tsukai magic cannon] that level is raised, it is the most attack power is high magic bullets, and plus a [Magic Cannon of Doom] combat maneuver As a result of the power is raised to a normal to three times or more as compared with the time.

But tough "Arakuremono of anger" before abnormal example, damage if burned systemic than it is biological Toru~tsu.

"Moth Aaaaa Aaaaa ~Tsu!"

But, still it was not dead.

Whole body inflamed the, though now of giant flames "of anger Arakuremono" is coming towards me while sprinkled the roar of Ensa.

Flame that wrapped the whole body of the current "anger of Arakuremono" has reached up to several thousand degrees.

Though not what flying sparks around by the effect of Madan, very hot by being roasted in the heat wave if indeed too close.

"Fire ~Tsu! Fire ~Tsu!"

Though somewhat bearable, it also there are things that limit.

While falling behind in a hurry, it bombarded the world destroying conflagration wearing storm bullets Add to defeat.

Momentum of flame increases even more, we understand well that the air had been with the surrounding dank go scattered in the heat wave.

"Moth Aaaaa ~Tsu ah, ah ......"

Finally it seemed no longer withstand the hellfire that was gaining momentum, sites that are burned out from the extremities of the end goes collapsed and tattered.

Legs that no longer withstand its own weight is broken, bulk was falling plunged forward. Still, I was fear indeed to things did not stop you approaching using or arms, there is a bombardment the partisans, were crushed one after another body that had become brittle.

And I was surprised that it is not dead yet also burned more than half of the body, to "anger Arakuremono" which became stuck Ruberia mother-in-law's was stabbed in the coffin.

The Issen by combat maneuver that was swung down from the top. Sharp enough to wind noise is heard from after it has been carefully pretend blow, was beautiful enough to be charmed.

But, the battle of the "anger of Arakuremono" In this was the end.

"Alright, now -"

By defeating a formidable enemy that "Arakuremono of anger", I got careless, even only for a moment.

It for a new enemy, no doubt became a fatal advantage.

"-" Spirit violate malicious wave Runasu-Aburuba ""

Emitted from the side street, which has been in my blind spot, the black wave and ran through the body in a moment - abyss system fifth revised magic "spirit violate malicious wave".

It is meaningless in front of overwhelming power, such as resistance by the guard to have the spirit, I was only crouch in unbearable pain, such as that stirred the brain in like the heated metal bar.

Still, when you looked up to confirm the managed situation, it is not only and Ruberia mother-in-law's, know carcasses of all kinds of people that it was like to witness the spectacle that was stacked full view as the mountain.

Numerous blood through the nasal cavity, bad smell peculiar when offal and filth is commingled.

Fresh feel stepped crushed the bones of carcasses's, rotten meat rub.

I feel in the five senses it is not a hallucination, it was not only felt a reality.

"Upu~tsu"

Bad feelings that well up from the stomach. Esophagus is burned by stomach acid, the smell was pungent to come to the nose.

like the whole family was Shinihate Mugotarashiku has mentally strong stress, severe pain of never-head disappear was effective to try to cut off the normal judgment.

Perhaps now I have been affected by [state abnormal bad status], such as [Depression] and [Confusion].

I do not effect, such as to destroy the hit was "spirit violate malice of the wave" in body, spirit to give a strong damage, you know to study mental cause some of the [state abnormal] insidious magic, and from, I'll no doubt.

So all the things that he is visible now is hallucination, even though its supposed such.

Realistic sense too is, than has become layers Maybe is, What a would pull out the thought.

I do not can now such that you shake off. I can not resist the magic that has been emitted from overwhelming the strong.

"Oia! Mugu Dian Grum"

Supposed hallucinations, mountain of corpses. There are enemies who exercise the magic.

Like head, such as the octopus, Ugomeki countless tentacles type predation organs seeking brain to mouth, with a body like a human, brutal dungeon monsters to spread the madness "Ishiriddo".

But not strong until there physically, that you are very good in the magical area is also known, I exist worst close as the enemy to be encountered in this labyrinth.

Frankly, there is no so wins in us. victory or defeat in the moment that is encountered is Kesshiteru, it was such on the case.

Such Ishiriddo is, grasp the Namakubi dad wearing the white of the eye in the elongated bone only skin and finger like, was sipping a brain using a tentacle type predation organ wriggles of mouth.

Whizzing whizzing, I hear unpleasant sound.

Bryde, Ishiriddo is felt that it was a smile full of malice.

"Oh, Oh, Aa, ah ah ah ah ah"

cry involuntarily out from my mouth.

Ishiriddo you better mind And has crushed the father of the head of exhausted suck brain with both hands.

Piece of meat that flying in as if exploded.

"Oia! Amba Ru Gun Nam"

Triumph as Ishiriddo is good for something, to consolidate the dense magic in his hand that piece of meat was the father of the head stick.

Though probably it is trying to trigger some sort of magic, such was no relationship to me.

"Oh Aa, stupid or ~Tsu!"

"Oia!? Aburunma!?"

If it is found to be a hallucination, still scene, such as would thought that reality had surely tormented me.

Definitely, I was not in a normal mental state by the "spirit violate malicious wave". If it is attacked, I think I had been killed without being able to even defense.

But, this indeed, if Rarere let the sight that impossible, it is something that returns to sanity.

"There probably bored! Dad mean that dad is killed in Shiki Anta is" tail when it encounters a cognate of Anta, the octopus discovery. Well, to say that I try will "eat, Shun is not allowed even resistance in the spear of one Nagi Then ~Tsu !! And of not it has been killed by actually eat, "Oh, do not delicious octopus legs is not crunchy. This one is hunting what body or to souvenir" I was not saying ~Tsu".

Until coming to this section, I have encountered a Ishiriddo us but the number was small and only a few bodies.

Like to mow the grass at that time, dad we are witnessing the killing Ishiriddo us instantaneous.

Moreover, with respect to the [fear] to Ishiriddo that frantic to come to barrage the magic of high sea, without even defense seems to defense, dad just Nagiharau with a spear approaching just is killing.

Such exist, such as sip brain under the banner of the father of Namakubi, and I too cruel even to hallucinations.

"Oh the other, uh anymore, I wonder why lost in this for! Amuka made"

No longer the severe pain of the head. Maybe that in [abnormal state] also Keshiton.

To dispel anger such as that butted against the sideshow that is ridiculous, since perfect way there already, I was running it without hesitation.

"All all all, Buttobe ~Tsu !!"

Magic bullet magic gun produces that put the magic to the maximum.

Until it is exhausted, I draw bow to limit the trigger towards the Ishiriddo.

Overwhelming blasting is swallowed in an instant Ishiriddo.

■ ■ ■

It had been watched, immediately after finishing the battle with "Arakuremono of anger", when exactly that would not win in the still Oro us it came from the side street, which was in the blind spot magic of "Ishiriddo" was hit in Oro is composed of what genuinely It was worrying whether.

That it has been trying to involuntarily because had been badly spicy likely to help, indeed whether I should say even with my child, and to say that it had suffered multiple of spirit system to the state abnormal], overcome only by strong mental strength It was show me the feat.

While impressed as he has grown to more than expected, overwhelming destruction is Furimaka around by the magic bullet of the magic gun that resurrected Auro's shot.

There was a happening Nante Argento is blown off by being caught up in the aftermath, well, there will be also such things.

We did not go in until the defeat Ishiriddo indeed, but it is inflicted moderate damage can be blown off.

The unsteady was gap in shock without going to miss the red hair short, is approaching from blind spot, to be successful in that it kill by bisected the neck in an instant.

Since Ishiriddo of octopus legs quite tasty, and do not forget those housed in the item box immediately.

A little bit of evaluation meeting after the battle - and off guard and win, because had received a surprise - after you, and praise that it has done well. There was also bad place, but it would have been not bad on the whole.

Today day in such a feeling, it began to capture in children priority.


THIS IS DAY 301'S RAW

“三百一日目”

各所に点在している安全地帯の一つで一夜を快適に過ごし、今日も早朝から【アンブラッセム・ポントス号】の攻略を開始した。

【アンブラッセム・ポントス号】はこれまで攻略してきた迷宮と同じように、場所によって内装などが大きく変化する。

上層になればなるほど大富豪達が乗る豪華クルーズ客船のような宮殿めいた豪奢な内装となるのに対し、現在攻略中である喫水線よりも下の船底に近い区画では、まるで海底に沈んだ邪神を奉る神殿のような内装の回廊と小部屋が広がっていた。

常時海水に濡れている暗緑色の石壁には、フジツボのような甲殻類や毒々しい色合いの海藻類がビッシリと気色が悪くなるほど密集し。

アチラコチラに多数ある邪神教信者が『イア! イア!』とか言って信奉してそうな蛸頭の狂気を撒き散らす邪神像は怪しげな青紫色に輝くと同時に、まるで大量の魚が腐って熟成された時のような臭気を撒き散らしている。

正直、【アンブラッセム・ポントス号】内部では最も劣悪と言っていいだろう場所だ。

トラップの類はあまり配置されていないので進みやすいが、この区画は宝箱の中身やドロップアイテムの質が悪い事も含めて総合的に考えれば、素通りしてもっと利益の出る区画を攻略した方が肉体的にも、精神的にも、戦果的にも良いのだろう。

しかし俺達はこの区画をゆっくり時間をかけて進んでいた。

そりゃ、攻略するだけなら、今の俺達ならゴリ押しでどうにかなるだろう。

俺が居るし、カナ美ちゃんや復讐者達も居るのだから、戦力としては十分過ぎるどころか過剰と言っていい。

しかも長い月日をかけて攻略している他の攻略者からまだ全域は埋められていない未完成品だが、それでも八割ほどが埋まっているダンジョンマップを購入済みだ。

その他にも何気ない会話から情報を収集して、ダンジョンボスが居るだろう最奥に至るルートも、大雑把にだが既に予想できている。

予期せぬ出来事でも発生しない限り、これまで通り攻略して【アンブラッセム・ポントス号】を手中に収める事が出来るだろう。

だが今回はせっかくオーロとアルジェント、それから赤髪ショートとオプシーが同行しているのだ。

最近はほったらかしにしていたので、迷宮という鍛錬に最適な場所で家族サービスの一つや二つ、したっていいだろうさ。

まあ、家族サービスといっても全員ではないが、今回は仕方ない。他の家族には別の形で報いる事にするとして。

そんな訳で環境は劣悪だが、その代わりなのか出現するダンジョンモンスターが基本的に一体で放浪し、多くても三体までしか群れず、取得経験値が他の区画よりも少し多く得られるという特性があるこの区画は都合が良かった。

ここなら上手くやれば一対多という有利な状況で戦闘に移行できるので、これまでのように助力する機会をグッと減らす事が可能だ。

やはり俺達が数を減らしたり弱らせたりするとオーロ達の取得経験値が減ってしまうので、敵を倒せる場合にはできる限り助力せず地力で倒させた方がいい。

という事でいつでも助けられる距離まで下がり、甘えてくるオプシーを抱きかかえ、勇猛果敢に挑む赤髪ショート達を見ながら、皆以前と比べて遥かに強くなったものだと嬉しく思い、同時に大丈夫だろうか、とハラハラドキドキしながら戦いの行く末を見守った。

■ ◇ ■

生まれて初めて見る大海。

透き通るような海水で満ちたそこは、最初果てしなく広がっていると思った。

なのに大海の先にはまだ見た事も無い別大陸があると言われて、想像もできない世界に興味を抱いたのは、つい先日の事。

その時こそ、いつかこの大海の先にあるという大陸に行ってやる、という野望を私が抱いた瞬間だったと言えるわね。

まあ、そんな野望はさて置き、想像以上に綺麗な大海に面している迷宮都市≪ドゥル・ガ・ヴァライア≫をジックリと観光できたのは、とっても良かったと思ってる。

やっぱり生活している場所の特性によって、文化とか技術とかは発展するものだからね。

生活習慣の事とか、食文化の事とか。今まで知らなかった事を知る、絶好の機会だったわ。

街並みとかもこれまでにはなかった構造だったし、興味深かったからとても楽しめたのよね。

ただ、今回お母さんや鬼若達がいなかったのはとっても残念だったわ。

こんな綺麗なところを観光するのに、お母さん達がいないなんて勿体ないと思うのよ。

だけど、いつか超えてやろうと思って目標にしているお父さんが居たし、優しくて綺麗なカナ美義母かあさんや、厳しくも包み込んでくれるルベリア義母さん、それに生まれた時から居る私の半身とでも言うべきアルと、可愛い可愛い私の大切な妹達の片割れであるオプシー、あとは時々鍛えてくれる復讐者さん達が居たから、まあ良しとしておく事にしたわ。

お父さんがまた今度、皆で来ような、って言ってたしねッ。

今は思いっきり遊んで、今度皆で来た時には私が案内してあげなくちゃねッ。

思いっきり観光を楽しんだ翌日、私達は小舟に乗って山みたいな大きさの船――【アンブラッセム・ポントス号】に乗り込んで、初めて本当の【神代ダンジョン】の中を体験する事になったわ。

そして錨を伝って中に入ったと同時に、お父さんの【神代ダンジョン】とは違うと理解する事になった。

ヒヤリとするような、独特の雰囲気。

命を狙われている、という感覚。

周囲に潜んでいる、明確な敵意。

巧妙に隠された、挑戦者を試す神意。

お父さんが攻略した【神代ダンジョン】では、どこか安心感が得られていた。

でもここはまだ攻略されている訳ではないから、その安心感が無かった。

これが本物の【神代ダンジョン】なんだって、すぐに理解できた。

約束された安全など皆無であるここは、まだ私とアルには荷が重い。

私達だけだと即座に殺されてしまうような格上ばかりが雑兵として配置されている、と思えばいいでしょうね。挑戦するのすらまだ私達には許されていない、そんな領域ね。

けどお父さん達が助けてくれて、数回程戦闘を経験する事ができた。

数を減らしてくれたり、体力を削ってくれたりしたその分だけ得られる経験値は減少したのだろうけど、格上ばかりだったからか得られる経験値の総量は多い為、私達に蓄積されていく経験値は規定値を越え、グングンとレベルを上昇させた。

それに加えて倒した後は死体が消える前に可能な限り肉を食べる事で、私達が持つ【聖獣喰い】の効果が発動し、普通よりも遥かに効率的に能力が向上していく。

それによって入る前よりも確実に私達は強さを増した。

それでもまだ私達には早すぎる場所だから、私達がこうして上の世界を経験した後はお父さんがここをサッサと攻略して、私達に後から訓練をつけてくれると思っていたの。

――でもね。

『この区画ならオーロ達のレベル上げに丁度いいだろうから、じっくり進んでいこうか』

そう、お父さんが言ったの。

そりゃ、私達だって早く強くないたいわ。

少しでも強くなって、お父さん達に守られるだけの存在じゃなくて、助けとなれるようになりたいし。

でも、別にこの区画じゃなくてもいいじゃない、と思うのよ。

船底に近い区画なんだけど、ここは凄くジメジメしているし、壁にビッシリと生えた、フジツボ? っていうのなんて、凄く気持ちが悪い。

見ているだけで鳥肌が立ちそうになるわ。

それに鼻が馬鹿になるほど臭いし、出てくるダンジョンモンスターも何だか生っぽいし、何だかネバネバというか、とにかく気色の悪い体液に濡れてるのもいるのよね。

しかも個体としては私達より強いから、少しも油断できない。

下手すれば、多分即死する事もあるでしょうね。

精神的な重圧でストレスが溜まるし、肉体的にも堪えるのよ。

まあ、ストレス発散も兼ねて思いっきり魔砲をぶっ放しても怒られないから、完全に嫌って訳じゃないけどね。

「オーロ姉、まだですかッ」

単身前衛として頑張ってくれているルベリア義母さんをサポートする為、弟のアルは“鬼珠オーブ”を解放し、手にした白銀の大弓にパルチザンを番え、矢継ぎ早に眼前の敵――“怒りの荒くれ者アンガー・アルビオン”へと射掛けている。

「ゴオオオオオオオオオオッ!!」

怒気を漲らせて咆哮する“怒りの荒くれ者”は、六メルトルという見上げるほどの巨躯に備わった卓越した身体能力と、手にする巨躯に見合うサイズの斧のような錨を武器に戦う巨人の一種。

巨躯相応の重量だけでも脅威だけど、それを支える強靭な筋肉や骨格、そして青色の分厚い皮膚は半端な攻撃を受け付けない天然の防具でもある。

幸いにも遠距離攻撃はしてこないけど、接近戦では私やアルではまだまだ分が悪い強敵ね。

「くそッ、なんて防御力だッ」

アルは構造的に比較的柔らかい眼球や耳、致命傷を負わせやすい頸部、それと動きを鈍らせる事のできる四肢の関節を正確に狙っているけど、やっぱり皮膚や筋肉が厚すぎて攻撃の効きが悪いわね。

一応グサリと突き刺さってそれなりに出血させているし、若干ながら動きを阻害する事には成功している。

普通の相手ならもう倒していても可笑しくはないんだけど、あの巨躯からすればダメージは少なそうだわ。

現に今も元気よく暴れているしね。

「ガアアアアアアアアアッ!」

そんな“怒りの荒くれ者”の最も近い場所では、ルベリア義母さんが獣のような咆哮を発しながら縦横無尽に攻めていた。

豪速で振り回される錨を軽やかに回避し、時には【将軍凧盾ジェネラルシールド】で逸らしながら戦っているルベリア義母さんは、純白で肉厚な刀身をした愛剣【将軍大包丁ジェネラルチョッパー】に赤い燐光を纏わせ、右膝の同じ箇所に斬撃を集中させている。

何かしらの戦技アーツを使用した斬撃の集中攻撃には流石の分厚い皮膚や筋肉も耐え切れなかったらしく、夥しい鮮血を噴出させながら巨木のような片足は切断されたようね。

「ギガッ、ゴオオオオオオオオオオッ」

片足を切断されてバランスを崩した“怒りの荒くれ者”だったけど、せめてもの反撃なのか、地面に倒れながらその手に持つ錨をルベリア義母さん目掛けて振り下ろした。

まるで巨岩が落下してきたような一撃だったけど、ルベリア義母さんは既にそこに居ない。

獣以上の俊敏さで既に攻撃範囲外に逃げていたからだ。

錨は石畳の回廊を穿ち、破片を勢い良く飛び散らせたけど、その他の被害はなかった。

「――ッチ」

小さな舌打ちが聞こえた。

それはルベリア義母さんが漏らしたものだった。

「もう再生が始まってるかぁ。同じ程度の体格ならとっくに仕留められるんだけど、大きさって厄介だなぁ、本当に」

ルベリア義母さんが距離をとった僅かな間に、“怒りの荒くれ者”は切断された右足を再生させている。

切り落とされた部位と部位を無理やりくっつけ、馬鹿げた再生力で繋ぎ合わせてしまったのだ。

多少の違和感があるようだけど、動きにそこまで問題があるようには見られない。地面に転がっていたはずの状態から、もう立ち上がってしまった。

切断された足をくっつける間、アルが懸命にパルチザンを撃ち込んでいたけど、多少の被弾を無視して再生を優先していた。

やっぱりこれまでの迷宮ダンジョンで戦ったダンジョンモンスター達と比べて知能が高いわ。

攻撃されても、しっかりと優先順位を決めて私達を屠るために動いている。

「圧倒的な体躯差のある相手に対する決定力不足、か。今後の改善点にしないと」

ルベリア義母さんは近接戦で三倍以上大きい“怒りの荒くれ者”を圧倒している。

それは一切ダメージを負わず、一方的に攻撃していた事から分かる事だけど、それでも再生能力を突破して殺害するには攻撃力が若干足りなかった。

大きさが違いすぎるのだから仕方ないけど、それが気に食わなかったらしい。

ルベリア義母さんは攻撃を回避しながらブツブツと改善すべき点を見つめ直し、アルはそれをサポートしているけど、決定力が欠けている為なかなか倒せそうにない。

事態は膠着した、とも言えるわね。

でも、こんな時こそ私の出番なのよねッ。

「魔弾生成完了ッ、私達の経験値にしてあげるッ」

“怒りの荒くれ者”を斬撃や打撃で倒すのは困難なら、再生が追いつかない程の火力で全身を一気に燃やしてしまえばいいのよッ。

[オーロは戦技【破滅の魔砲】を繰り出した]

今回は戦技も上乗せして、確実に火葬してあげるッ。

「ちょッ、まだルベリア義母さんがッ」

アルが何か叫んでいるけど、アルが見えてないだけでルベリア義母さんはとっくに退避済みよ。

しかも退避する前に、飛ぶ斬撃を繰り出す戦技を使って“怒りの荒くれ者”の眼球を深く切り裂いていった。

短時間で再生されるだろうけど、それによって一時的に視界を奪われた“怒りの荒くれ者”が私の攻撃を回避する可能性はグッと低くなったわね。

そんなルベリア義母さんの援護に感謝し。

「ファイヤー!!」

お父さんがくれた魔砲の引き金を絞ると、魔砲の砲口からは目も眩むような発火炎マズルフラッシュと共に耳を劈つんざく轟音が迸り、内部で私の魔力を糧に生成された魔弾は視認できないほど高速で射出され、狙い違わず視界を奪われ、万全では無い右足のせいで咄嗟に動く事の出来なかった標的に着弾する。

胸部に直撃を受けて錨を手放しながら大きく仰け反ったと同時に、“怒りの荒くれ者”の全身を包むのは青白い業火。

しかも周囲に拡散する事はなく、まるで鎧のように“怒りの荒くれ者”の全身を包んでいる。

まるで巨大な松明めいて、高い天井を焦がす程の火柱が立ち上った。

「ギ、ギガアアアアアアアアッ」

青白い業火によって全身を燃やされては、流石の“怒りの荒くれ者”も堪らないようね。

見る間に青い皮膚は焼け爛れ、再生しようとしていた眼球は沸騰して弾け飛び、業火を吸い込んだ肺は内部から燃えだし、肉が焼けていく匂いが漂い始めたわ。

今回選択した魔弾は消えない魔炎を発生させる不鎮炎弾と、特定範囲に強風を発生させる錯乱風弾を合成した劫火纏嵐弾よ。

レベルが上がった私の【魔砲使い】で最近生成する事が可能になったばかりの合成魔弾の中で、最も攻撃力が高い魔弾であるそれに、戦技【破滅の魔砲】を上乗せさせた結果その威力は通常の時と比べて三倍以上にまで引き上げられている。

例え異常なまでにタフな“怒りの荒くれ者”でも、生物である以上は全身を燃やされればダメージは通るッ。

「ガアアアアアアアアアアッ!」

でも、それでも死んではいなかった。

全身を燃え上がらせ、まるで炎の巨人のようになった“怒りの荒くれ者”は、怨嗟の咆哮を撒き散らしながら私に向かってくる。

現在“怒りの荒くれ者”の全身を包んでいる炎は数千度にまで達している。

魔弾の効果によって周囲に飛び火こそしないけど、流石に近すぎれば熱波に焙られて非常に熱い。

「ファイヤーッ! ファイヤーッ!」

多少は我慢できるけど、それも限度というものがある。

慌てて後方に下がりながら、倒すために追加で劫火纏嵐弾を撃ち込んだ。

炎の勢いはより一層増し、周囲のジメジメとしていた空気が熱波で散っていくのがよく分かる。

「ガアアアアアッアアアア、アア……」

そしてついに勢いを増した業火に耐え切れなくなったらしく、四肢の末端から燃え尽きた部位がボロボロと崩れ落ちていく。

自重に耐え切れなくなった脚部が砕け、巨体が前のめりに転倒した。それでも腕などを使って近づいて来る事を止めなかったのには流石に恐怖したけど、アルがパルチザンを撃ち込み、脆くなっていた肉体を次々と砕いたわ。

肉体の半分以上が燃え尽きてもまだ死んでいない事に驚いたけど、動けなくなった“怒りの荒くれ者”にルベリア義母さんがトドメを刺した。

上段から振り下ろされた戦技による一閃。振り抜かれた後から風切り音が聞こえてくる程の鋭い一撃は、惚れ惚れするほど綺麗だったわ。

でも、これで“怒りの荒くれ者”との戦闘は終了した。

「よしッ、これで――」

“怒りの荒くれ者”という強敵を倒した事で、私は一瞬だけでも油断してしまった。

それが新たな敵にとって、致命的な優位になったのは間違いない。

「――“精神侵す悪意の波動ルーナス・アブルバ”」

私の死角になっていた横道から放たれ、一瞬で身体を駆け抜けた黒い波動――深淵系統第五階梯魔術“精神侵す悪意の波動”。

油断していた精神による抵抗など圧倒的な威力の前には無意味であり、私はまるで熱した金属棒で脳髄を掻き混ぜられるような耐え難い激痛に蹲るしかなかった。

それでも何とか状況を確認するため顔を上げた時には、アルやルベリア義母さんだけでなく、知っているありとあらゆる人達の死骸がまるで山のように視界一杯に積み重ねられた光景を目の当たりにした。

鼻腔を貫く夥しい血と、臓物と汚物が混じりあった時特有の悪臭。

踏んだ死骸の骨を砕き、腐った肉が擦れる生々しい感触。

五感で感じるそれは幻覚ではなく、現実のものとしか感じられなかった。

「うぷっ」

胃からこみ上げる気持ちの悪さ。食道が胃酸で焼かれ、鼻に来るツンとした臭い。

家族全員が惨たらしく死に果てた様は精神的に強いストレスがあり、消える事の無い頭部の激痛は正常な判断を遮断しようと効果を発揮した。

恐らく今の私は、【恐慌】や【混乱】といった【状態異常バッドステータス】に侵されている。

直撃した“精神侵す悪意の波動”は肉体を破壊するなどの効果はないけど、精神に強いダメージを与え、精神的な【状態異常】を幾つか引き起こす陰湿な魔術、と勉強して知っているから、間違いないわね。

だから今見えているモノ全てが幻覚、そのはずなのに。

余りにも現実的な感覚が、もしかしたらそうなっているのでは、なんて思いを引き出してしまう。

振り払う事など今の私にはできない。圧倒的強者から放たれた魔術に抵抗できない。

「イア! ムグディアングルム」

幻覚のはずの、屍の山の上。そこに魔術を行使した敵がいる。

まるでタコのような頭部、口元には無数の触手型捕食器官が脳髄を求めて蠢き、人間のような胴体を持つ、狂気を撒き散らす残忍なダンジョンモンスター“イシリッド”。

肉体的にはそこまで強くないけれど、魔法的な分野では非常に優れている事でも知られる、この迷宮で遭遇する敵としては最悪に近い存在ね。

ハッキリ言って、私達では勝ちようが無い。遭遇した瞬間に勝敗は決してる、そんな格上だった。

そんなイシリッドが、白目を剥いたお父さんの生首を細長い骨と皮だけのような指で掴み、口元の蠢く触手型捕食器官を使って脳髄を啜っていた。

ジュルジュルジュルジュル、嫌な音が聞こえてくる。

ニタリ、イシリッドが悪意に満ちた笑みを浮かべた気がした。

「あ、あ、あああ、ああああああああああ」

思わず私の口から出る叫び。

それに気を良くしたイシリッドが、脳髄を吸い尽くしたお父さんの頭部を両手で押し潰した。

まるで爆発したかのように飛び散る肉片。

「イア! アンバルゥグンナム」

そして勝ち誇るようにイシリッドは何かを良い、お父さんの頭部だった肉片がこびり付くその手に濃密な魔力を集約する。

何かしらの魔術を発動させようとしているのだろうけど、私にはそんなの関係なかった。

「あああああ、アホかーーッ!」

「イア!? アブルンマ!?」

幻覚だと分かっていて、それでも現実だと思ってしまうような光景は確実に私を苦しめていた。

間違いなく、私は“精神侵す悪意の波動”によって正常な精神状態ではなかった。攻撃されれば、防御すらできずに殺されていたと思う。

でも、流石にこんな、有り得ない光景を見させられれば、正気に戻るというものだ。

「お父さんがアンタ如きに殺される訳ないでしょうがッ! お父さんはアンタの同族と遭遇した時に『お、タコ発見。よし、食べてみよう』って言って、槍の一薙ぎで抵抗すら許さず瞬殺してたじゃないのッ!! しかもその後実際に食べて『あ、タコ足がコリコリしてて美味いな。お土産に何体か狩ってこうか』って言ってたしッ」

この区画に来るまでの間、数体だけと数は少なかったけどイシリッド達とは遭遇している。

その時にはまるで草を刈るように、お父さんはイシリッド達を瞬殺しているのを目の当たりにしているのだ。

しかも【恐怖】し半狂乱して高階梯の魔術を連発してくるイシリッドに対し、防御らしい防御もせず、ただ近づいて槍でなぎ払うだけでお父さんは殺している。

そんな存在が、お父さんの生首を掲げて脳髄を啜るなど、幻覚にしても酷すぎるわ。

「あーもう、あーもう、なんでこんなのに負けたのかしら! あームカつくッ」

もう頭の激痛はない。多分【状態異常】も消し飛んでいる。

馬鹿げた余興に付き合わされたような鬱憤を晴らすのは、ピッタリな方法が既にあるから、私は迷わずそれを実行した。

「全部全部全部、ぶっ飛べーーーーッ!!」

最大にまで魔力を込めた魔砲が生み出す魔弾。

それが尽きるまで、私はイシリッドに向けて引き金を引き絞る。

圧倒的な爆砕が、イシリッドを一瞬で飲み込んだ。

■ ■ ■

見守っていたが、“怒りの荒くれ者”との戦闘を終えた直後、丁度死角にあった横道からやってきたまだオーロ達では勝てないだろう“イシリッド”の魔術がオーロに直撃した時は、心底どうなるかと心配させられた。

酷く辛そうにしていたので思わず手助けしようとしたが、流石は俺の子とでも言えばいいのか、複数の精神系【状態異常】に苦しめられていたというのに、強い精神力だけで打ち勝つという偉業をやってみせたのだ。


予想以上に成長しているのだと感心しつつ、復活したオーロが撃ち放った魔砲の魔弾によって圧倒的な破壊が周囲に振りまかれる。

その余波に巻き込まれてアルジェントが吹き飛ばされるなんてハプニングがあったが、まあ、そういう事もあるだろう。

流石にイシリッドを倒すまでにはいかなかったが、吹き飛ばしてそれなりのダメージを負わせている。

衝撃でふらついた隙を赤髪ショートが逃すはずもなく、死角から接近し、その頸部を一瞬で両断して仕留める事に成功する。

イシリッドのタコ足は結構美味しいので、即座にアイテムボックスに収納するもの忘れない。

戦闘後は少しの反省会――勝ったと油断し、奇襲を受けてしまったので――をした後、良くやったと褒める。ダメなところもあったが、全体的には悪くなかっただろう。
