Day 319

 

The ninth day of the festival.

Today I think I will pay attention to Avenger.

The event that Avenger supervises is “Giant Slaying”.

You would probably think that the contents are just as it is simply stated.

[Summon: Lesser Undead] and [Summon: Lesser Giant] can be used together to create "The Black Giant Skeleton Soldier" and "The Black Giant Skeleton Gardner", whereas by using [Summon: Lesser Giant] and [Summon: Superior Demon] together, I can create "Black Cyclops Butcher" and "Black Troll Jaime" and so on. The lowest summoning spell created maybe eight, together amounting to one hundred giants. A severe content of continuous subjugation.

Because they are relentless, it makes it necessary to take additional cautions with the giants, even if there are about 300 people. So that one party will be on standby until fifty bodies are knocked down.

But after that, It is specified to keep company with two to five random bodies at the same time till the ninety-ninth body is knocked down.

However, the giant fights according to the strength of each group, and is constantly adjusting to an extent where it can stay in combat tentatively up to the last minute. It will be up to them to reach their limit, win, and advance to the next round until the last man.

But especially for the last one hundredth body, by using four abilites [Summon: True Dragon], [Summon: Devil Archfiend], [Summon: Superior Demon], and [Summon: Lesser Giant] together permits summoning as a result, one “Devil Dragon Demon Chaos Giant Trichimera Geryones”.

A dragon and a demon's bodies united with a huge devil near the part of the abdomen, an existence like the chimera of a giant formed with three heads and six arms.

It is likely to become a strong classification particularly in the range of creatures that can be summoned now. Though it is possible to strengthen to another stage, it was prevented from being done. There is also a black version of it too.

By the way, the reinforced body of the “Black Devil Dragon Demon Chaos Giant the Black Trichimera Geryones” is at a level where it is able to be Minokichi-kun's fair match.

It is inferior, but it isn't assumed that even a body like that can be easily knocked down.

So it is decided that in order to clear it, you need to deal constant accumulative damage.

[A certain Kid General Lutz's Point of View]

 

Despair was there.

It is a despair of the maximum level, never yet felt while living until now. It is surely located on a higher rank.

 

“This, this, this,....is impossible.”

 

The body trembles with fear.

It has been understood that it is applied to the fighting spirit from the beginning and peeled away, the whole body being atrophied.

The name of this despair is “Devil Dragon Demon Chaos Giant Trichimera Geryones”, it's what I'd say.

The shape the thing takes is that of a chimera of the giant type that has the skin of a demon like red iron, and a devil with a goats head with three eyes mixed with a dragon that had scales of blue silver in the body.

Three heads of an ogre's, a devil's and one equal to a dragon's, strong arms, and a total of six hard legs, plus a long dragon tail with a characteristic length.

There are weapons on each of his six arms, the dragon arms holds a long spear of the molding such like a dragon tail, as for the demon's arms it has an enormous metal kanabo, while the devil arms were holding a red Scythe, which draws an arc of distortion.

The material that's mixed for the chimera is not normal. It could be said that, compared to that gigantic and overwhelming figure, we could be thought to be an insect or small animal.

At least 20 meters is sure to be exceeded. No, 25. It is an almost unpleasant 30. If you compare its height in the vicinity, it's comparable to the royal castle.

 

"An attack in close proximity and one will die... maybe us."

 

Muttering my soliloquy in blank surprise to release the escapism feeling, Lieutenant General "Iira" trembled similarly next to me and answered:

 

"Maybe you're ready to give up on it. There is no choice but to agree."

 
 

"Ggoooooooooot!" Roared the Dragon's Head.

"Ooooooooo OOT!" Roared the Demon's head.

"Burgoooooooot!" Roared the Devil's head.

 

A threefold roar that rised, resonating with each other, Iira was blown off as well as myself, as it was not possible to take a stance.

 

“Wow !”

 

“Eek !”

 

It seems Iira and I weren't the only ones to be blown off, like having bathed in the blast at close range. Covered all over with wounds, and although managing to defeat the 99 last giants, our companions seem to have met the same fate.

The fighting spirit was barely hanging on after almost being blown off only by just one roar. The people who parted with consideration are also coming out one after another.

Even if it is not so, the people who are hanging on have been afflicted with two or more abnormal state buds status is the majority.

If you're not in a state to move immediately, extermination is inevitable. Though I think that it won't aim to kill, you can die by making a considerable enough mistake.

Judging from Trichimera Geryones, the incarnation of despair itself, we must face such an existence that could kill us as easily as a bug, but even if we are easy we will make it pay.

However, still, to be defeated without doing anything, I hate it.

 

“Gu tsu ......ooooooooooooooootsu”

 

The handle is about to be transformed, and power is put in as I grasp it strongly. The beloved sword which is the proud magic item which I gained by defeating a dungeon boss of the derivation dungeon and obtained by myself [Strong Decapitation Sword of Reckless Courage] poised with both hands, to raise a cry from the bottom of my belly to spit out the fear.

[Strong Decapitation Sword of Reckless Courage], with a length of the blade which is about two meters and some width, that'll be a small shield when turning it sideways, clearly it's still wider than me.

There is an appropriate weight corresponding to the size, by all rights I shouldn't have the physical strength to handle this thing, but it was an expectation.

It was so because the owner of the [Strong Decapitation Sword of Reckless Courage] can brandish it like swinging twigs because of [Herculean strength] and temporarily can make you forget fear with [Reckless Courage], both inherent abilities it can give.

Therefore I pant and lose fear, massive [Strong Decapitation Sword of Reckless Courage] was possible to move in that strengthened state.

 

“Oooooooooooooootsu - - raatsu!”

 
 

[Lutz Mixed Martial Arts [Reckless Dash] was drawn out]

 

Equipment and martial arts abilities that can be used are immediately increased.

[Strong Bracelet] and [Bracelet of Agility], magic items such as the ear cuffs are showing it's effects. Various body abilities rise, respectful improvements compared to the usual.

In addition, techniques to reduce defense by half and both attack power and speed triple with [Reckless Dash]. The body which retained the phosphorescence that glowed red was instant, and it ran through the earth.

I was faster than the attack of the Incarnation of Despair "Trichimera Geryones", who reached out with the sickle with one of the Devil arms trying to intercept me. Aiming [Strong Decapitation Sword of Reckless Courage] at the right foot after reaching the devil, I thought only about one thing: to swing completely with one's full power.

I don't even think about defense, exactly because [Reckless Courage] is an unreasonable attack, should I say.

 

[Lutz Martial Art [Burning Slash] was drawn out]

 

The addition of the Martial Art [Burning Slash] was carried to the [Strong Decapitation Sword of Reckless Courage], making the blade glow red.

Like a spark in the red phosphorescence, it was boosted by the technique to accelerate the slash.

The slashing sword was swung at a speed that I might not readily draw out out by myself, with a response like swinging a huge bar of pig metal, successfully tore up the devil's right leg only slightly.

(ED: not sure about the statement above)

 

“I'm good~tsu”

 

And the wound of the right foot of the devil caught fire, with a roaring sound caused by the Martial Art [Burning Slash].

The body hair scorches, it smells like roasted meat. Slightly. The slight injury is of an extent where it should self-regenerate soon, too, but I succeeded in driving in a blow, certainly.

 

"This - Gofu~u~tsu"

 

However, that was all.

I was attacking from a blind spot, my jaw dropped hard, being blown away.

I thought that I might not die immediately by the time I lost consciousness because of acute pain which seemed to explode before of the crash to the ground. The whole body and the prophylactic power reduced by half if did not previously get in a blow, at least momentarily.

After then, I don't know anything.

However, only one thing I was able to say: I was not dead yet.

If you truly gained this level, the upper group aside, it seems harsh to the lower group.

A free roar causes a near fatal impact. However, it is useful to discover the person who can act at the last moment, because there exists only but a few people how can confront it like that.

It might be precisely this kind of existence that has the makings of [Kings] and [Emperors].


I think I will prepare a special present to the person who did the best first of all.

 “三百十九日目”

 祭り九日目。

 今日は復讐者のところに注目してみようと思う。


 復讐者の催しモノは“巨人倒し”だ。

 これは単純にそのままの内容だと思ってくれればいいだろう。

 【下位巨人生成】に【下位アンデッド生成】を併用する事で生成できる“ブラックジャイアント・スケルトンソルジャー”や“ブラックジャイアント・スケルトンガードナー”、それから【下位巨人生成】に【上位鬼種生成】を併用する事で生成できる“ブラックサイクロプス・ブッチャー”や“ブラックトロル・ハイメイジ”など、最低で八メートルを越す巨人達を百体、連続討伐するという厳しい内容だ。


 約三百名居たとしても巨人を相手にするのは厳しいので、五十体を倒すまでは一体ずつ相手をする事になる。

 だがそれ以降、九十九体目が倒されるまではランダムで二~五体を同時に相手する仕様だ。

 一応最後まで行ける程度には各グループの強さに合わせて戦う巨人は調整しているが、最後まで勝ち進むのはギリギリといったところだろう。


 ただし最後の百体目には特別に【真竜精製】と【大悪魔精製】、それから【上位鬼種生成】と【下位巨人生成】の四つのアビリティを併用する事で生成が可能になる“魔竜鬼混沌巨人(トリオキメイラ・ゲリュオネウス)”を用意している。


 巨大な悪魔と竜と鬼が腹部の部分で合体し、三頭六腕六脚一尾という造形をした巨人のキメラのような存在だ。

 現時点で生成可能なモノの中でも一際強力な分類になるだろう。もう一段階強化できるが、流石にそれをするのは止めておいた、何て裏事情もあったりする。


 ちなみに強化体となる“黒魔竜鬼混沌巨人(ブラックトリオキメイラ・ゲリュオネウス)”はミノ吉くんともいい勝負が出来るレベルだ。


 それに劣るとはいえ、通常体でも基本的に倒される事は想定していない。

 なので一定ダメージを蓄積させる事ができればクリアした、という事にしている次第である。

【とあるガキ大将(ルッツ)視点】



 絶望がそこにあった。

 今まで生きてきた中でも、確実に上位に位置する極大の絶望だ。


「は、ははは……無理だろ、これ」


 恐怖に身体が震える。

 剥き出しの闘志に当てられて、全身が萎縮しているのが分かった。


 絶望の名前は“魔竜鬼混沌巨人(トリオキメイラ・ゲリュオネウス)”と言うらしい。

 青銀の鱗を持つ竜と赤鉄の皮膚を持つ鬼、三眼の山羊頭の悪魔が胴体部分で混ざり合ったような巨人型のキメラという化け物だった。


 後ろから竜と鬼と悪魔という三つの頭が並び、それぞれにある総数六つの剛腕と剛脚、そして長く伸びる竜尾が特徴的だ。

 六つの腕にはそれぞれ武器があり、竜腕は竜尾のような造形の長槍を、鬼腕は金属製の巨大金棒を、悪魔腕は歪な弧を描く禍々しい鎌を握っていた。


 キメラのように混ざり合っている素材自体が尋常ではないのに、まるで自身が虫か小動物になったかと思うほどの巨体は圧倒的と言うしかなかった。

 少なくとも二十メルトルは確実に超えているに違いない。二十五、いや三十近くある。近いものに例えれば、まるで王城のようだ。


「攻撃が近くを通っただけで死ぬかもね、私達」


 現実逃避気味に呆然と呟いた俺の独り言に、隣で同じように震えているガキ中将(イーラ)が返事した。

 諦めを多分に含んだそれに、同意せざるを得ない。 


『グゴオオオオオオオオオッ!』竜頭の咆哮。

『オオオオオオオオオオオッ!』鬼頭の咆哮。

『ブルグオオオオオオオオッ!』悪魔頭の咆哮。


 まるで共鳴するように高まりあった三重の咆哮は、身構える事すらできずに居た俺とイーラを吹き飛ばした。


「うわッ!」


「キャッ!」


 まるで至近距離で爆風を浴びたように吹き飛ばされたのは俺とイーラだけではなく、これまでの九十九体の巨人を何とか倒したものの満身創痍だった仲間達も同様だったらしい。

 まだつなぎ止められていた戦意はただの咆哮だけで吹き飛び、意識を手放した者も続出している。


 そうでなくても、複数の状態異常(バッドステータス)にかかっている者が大半だ。

 即座に動ける状態ではなく、絶滅は必至。とりあえず狙って殺される事はないと思うけど、間違って死ぬ事は十分に考えられる。

 手加減して払っても羽虫を殺す事があるように、絶望の権化(トリオキメイラ・ゲリュオネウス)からすれば俺達とはそういう存在でしかないに違いない。


 でも、それでも、ただ何もできずに負ける何て、そんなのは嫌だ。


「ぐつッ……オオオオオオオオオオオオオオオオッ」


 柄を変形させんばかりに力を込めて強く握り、派生ダンジョンのダンジョンボスを倒して自力で手に入れた自慢のマジックアイテムである愛剣【蛮勇の斬剛刀】を両手で構え、恐怖を吐き出すように腹の底から雄叫びを上げた。

 【蛮勇の斬剛刀】の刃渡りは約二メルトル程と俺よりも大きく、横にすれば小盾になるくらい幅がある。

 大きさに見合ったそれ相応の重量があり、本来ならまだ俺の膂力では扱う事など出来ない、筈だった。

 しかし【蛮勇の斬剛刀】には所有者が小枝のように振り回せるだけの【剛力】と、一時的に恐怖などを忘れさせる【蛮勇】を付与する固有能力がある。

 だから恐怖を塗り潰し、重い【蛮勇の斬剛刀】を持った状態でも動く事が出来たのだ。


「オオオオオオオオオオオオオオオッ――ラァッ!」


 [ルッツ・バルは戦技(アーツ)【蛮勇疾走】を繰り出した]


 使える装備と戦技を即座に行使。

 【強力の腕輪】や【俊敏の腕輪】、イヤーカフスなどのマジックアイテムが効果を発揮。各種身体能力が上昇し、普段よりも一つ上の段階に突入する。

 それに加えて、一撃を入れるまでは速度と攻撃力を三倍に引き上げる代わりに防御力を半減させる戦技【蛮勇疾走】によって赤い燐光を宿した身体はアッという間に大地を駆け抜けた。

 迎撃のために鎌で一薙ぎしてくる絶望の権化(トリオキメイラ・ゲリュオネウス)の攻撃が届くよりも速く、到達した悪魔の右足を狙って【蛮勇の斬剛刀】をただ全力で振り切る事だけを考えた。


 防御など考えない、まさに【蛮勇】というべき無茶苦茶な攻撃だ。


[ルッツ・バルは戦技【燃える斬撃(バーンスラッシュ)】を繰り出した]


 追加した戦技【燃える斬撃】によって赤い燐光を宿した【蛮勇の斬剛刀】の刃は赤く燃える。

 火花のような赤い燐光を置き去りに、戦技に後押しされて斬撃は加速する。

 自分自身では中々出せないだろう剣速で振り抜かれた斬撃は、まるで巨大な金属塊のような手応えと共に、悪魔の右足を僅かに切り裂く事に成功した。


「よしッ」


 そして悪魔の右足の傷口は轟ッ、と戦技【燃える斬撃】によって発火する。

 体毛は焦げ、肉を焼いた臭いがする。ほんの僅か、それもすぐ自己再生する程度の軽傷だけど、俺は確かに一撃を叩き込む事に成功したのだ。


「これで――ゴフゥッ」


 しかし、それだけだった。

 俺は死角から襲いかかってきた剛力に呆気なく吹き飛ばされた。

 地面に激突する前に全身が砕け散りそうな激痛によって意識を手放す間際、もし先に一撃を入れていなかったら、半減した防御力だと即死していたろうな、と一瞬思った。


 それから後の事は、何も分からない。


 ただ言えるのは、まだ俺は死んでいないという事だけだった。



■ △ ■



 流石にこのレベルになると、上位グループはともかく、下位グループには厳しいようだ。

 ただの咆哮でも、致命的な影響を及ぼしてしまう。しかしそれでも立ち向かう者は少数ながら存在するので、土壇場で行動できる者を発見するのには役立っている。

 もしかしたらこういう存在こそが【英勇】や【帝王】の素質を持っているのかもしれないな。


 とりあえず、頑張った者には特別な差し入れを用意しておこうと思う。
