After receiving the report of the emergence of the dungeon and its threat level, we departed from Earl Galhart’s territory on the same day.
Renein-san seemed to have reluctant about idea of using Mizzet from beginning to end, but when the legendary Paladin herself said that he should definitely use her, he seemed to have decided to do what he could as a nobleman.
Also, Gray-kun was not in a good mood when he learned that the person who would train him would be leaving soon, but he seemed to have reluctantly backed down when Renein-san told him that his parents, the current Earl of Galhart, who had left for Royal Capital, would be coming back soon.
I’m not sure what to say, but he’s a different kind of tsundere than Mizzet.
He is really sad that his mentor is leaving so soon, but he sells fights with her.
But when he finds out that his parents are coming back, he changes his mood.
Hmmm, it is what you would expect from a child.
Anyway, it’s been three days since I left, how is the Temple of the Creator God going?
Instead of riding on the back of Momiji, who has to take care of Kuroko-san, I’m traveling in a horse-drawn carriage to board an airship that will take us directly to the vicinity of the world tree.
Mizzt is in charge of the carriage, while I’m checking the map and keeping an eye on the situation there.
The carriage itself was forced upon us by the former Earl Renein-san with his own authority as a token of gratitude for us lending him a help.
Of course, he also paid for the airship.
The itinerary is quite long if you take a carriage, but once you get on the airship, you can reach the world tree in two days, so it won’t take much time.
After arriving there, I’m going to take a look at the dungeon, investigate it, and once I understand the threat level of the monsters, I’m going to use it as a stage for training the young lady Kuroko-san, and finally capture it, but I can’t help but feel uneasy about letting Momiji take care of her until then.
I’m sure there’s nothing in the temple of the Creator God that would cause a problem, but that youkai has an aura about it that suggests it might do something. I think I should take a look at it before I get on the airship.
I’ll talk to Mizzet about it.
“I agree with Kenji. That kid is dangerous, and I think she might be doing something wrong, so let’s go check on them.”
We agreed, so I decided to go back to the temple while we camped out in an appropriate place.
In case there are bandits in the area, we need to leave an escort, so Mizzet is here to guard the carriage.
It’s not often that few people attack a magnificent carriage displaying the Earl’s coat of arms, but even so, a high-class carriage moving alone without any guards is easily spotted.
If the other party is not smart enough, they may think we are sucker.
If the other party is not smart enough, they might even think that you are a sucker.
Well, there were actually such people, and there were a few bandits who had already attacked.
Even so, Mizzet overkilled them with [Holy Sword Invocation. Dance], a skill that can be called the mystery of the Paladin.
This skill [Ranbu], which even I have yet to master, was so powerful that it shattered the attacker’s body. Not a speck of dust was left.
The power of a single strike of [Holy Sword Invocation] itself has already at a deadly level, it would have been overkill even against an ordinary monster.
I felt a little guilty to see about her directing it at humans, but then again, bandits are no different than any other demon, just wild animals that have lost their humanity.
They kill for their own sustenance, and sometimes they trap others into a life of slavery where they would rather be dead.
To be honest, as theory I couldn’t bring myself to defend them, let alone an emotion.
If I were to defend them, it would mean that I had weighed them over people they kill.
Therefore, there was no mercy.
To be honest, bandits are probably worse than demons and demon kings, who are generally considered evil but not necessarily lowlifes.
“Well, I’m off. I’ll probably be back soon.”
“You can go ahead and take your time. I’m used to camping out in the open because of my activities with the Paladin Order.”
I wave my hand after saying that, But I don’t have much business there either, so I’ll be able to go back soon.
After all, I’ll just check if Momiji was causing any trouble.
Besides, I have to go to the Dungeon of World Tree early.
From the scene seen on the world map, there was something like an indescribable distortion, as if the World Tree itself was invaded by the poison of the dungeon.
It’s as if the Dungeon was eroding and assimilating the World Tree.
It’s so rare and rare that even with my unique skill of [Magical Power Perception], I’ve been receiving frequent emergency calls from the spirits under the World Tree.
According to them, the World Tree, the God of Spirit, is under attack by someone.
Moreover, since there was no precedent for this action because it was not an attack by a demon race, she did not know how to respond.
That’s probably true.
Even from my point of view, it’s a more troublesome than demons.
From what I’ve seen in the world 10,000 years in future, the creature has the ability to absorb others and fuse them together repeatedly.
That’s why it must be concentrating on taking in the World Tree right now.
And since it created dungeon and created a new kind of monster, I’m thinking that it might have the same or similar power of life creation as me, the Creator God Player, though not as good.
I’m not complaining about the fact that it has such abilities, but it’s not something that can be used without consideration.
When I downloaded the app and created the world as if it were a game, I understood that this world was real, but now I understand that this power is something that can seriously destroy the environmental balance of the world.
I’m not saying don’t ever use it, but I do want it to be aware of the effects it can have.
I hope the other party has the conscience to do so, but …… it is highly likely that the spirit of this guy is a child, as it has created a dungeon in a conspicuous place to play warriors.
I don’t know how it wields its power, but I get the impression that its specs are incredibly high.
What a terrible sub-god has been born.
Aah~ I want to enjoy the other world more peacefully.
