Chapter 290 - Let's Talk About the Solution

Lyle had an expression of despair.

It was the morning after Kazane and the others had safely returned to Angelite City after obtaining the Power Orbs. As usual, they were doing early morning special training, but a new member had joined them.

『Swing. More, more quickly. It's shameful that a person using a style descended from my Bahar style can't even use『Flash』; even with my empty eye sockets, I'm crying.』

「Yes, Leader-dono. I'll swing!!」

Thus, Lyle received one-on-one guidance that was stricter than usual. The other party was Jin Bahar, a skeleton wearing Dragon Knight armor and wielding Gungnir.

Using both the white dragonfang spear『God Eater』and the black dragonfang spear『Evil Eater』as intermediaries, Jinrai had become able to summon the Dragon Knight Jin Bahar with Gungnir.

As a matter of fact, Jinrai had been worrying about training his grandchild. Jinrai was certainly able to train Lyle. But since he himself didn't use the correct path, he had always been wondering if it was fine for him to teach Lyle, a legitimate successor of the Barnes style.

However, his opponent at the shipyard, Jin Bahar, was a legitimate user of the Bahar style, which was the predecessor of the Barnes style of spearmanship. Furthermore, he could even teach him secret techniques that hadn't been handed down to the current Barnes style, like the technique『All Things in Creation』that Jinrai saw yesterday.

Jin Bahar, who had been newly reborn as a summoned knight, was also very enthusiastic about teaching a user of the Barnes style that had succeeded his own style. To the degree of bombastically saying that being able to live (?) until today was for this purpose.

『What? No matter how close to death you feel, you can still train. And even if you do die, you can keep training. Like this.』

Jin Bahar spread his arms and said, but as might be expected, Jinrai cautioned him「Don't kill my grandson.」By the way, Jin Bahar's figure remained a skeleton. It seemed his existence had already become fixed that way.

Anyway, except for the boy who was half killed, it was a peaceful morning.

In the final section of the shipyard, Kazane and the others had obtained Power Orbs and the ancient civilization's highest authority keycard. The equipment and remains of the Dragon Knights were also stored together in the Mysterious Warehouse, but as might be expected, carrying them around for a long time would be eerie.

It seemed quite a lot of people had died by the time they reached the shipyard. They were able to collect the remains of the 40 people that were in that place, but no matter how she looked at it, carrying them around was scary. As it was, she might be called Moving Graveyard Kazane-chan. It was incredibly scary. Kazane wanted to hand them over to Hyvern's Archduke as soon as possible.

After that: Angelite City had a bathhouse with a hot spring for some reason, so they washed off that morning's sweat there and had breakfast, then met up with Morphia and Emily at noon. All members of the White Party were together once again.

Even though Emily's training only lasted about 10 days, the groundwork had already been laid, so she was able to learn the Dragon Spirit using bow techniques『Dragon Fang』and『Dragon Destruction』.

Then Kazane and some of the others called for Morphia after lunch to talk about the fall of the floating island.

◎ Angelite City, Kazane Cottage

「This island is going to fall? After 10 years?」

Morphia's eyes opened wide after Kazane's explanation. Emily, who came to the city with Morphia, also had a surprised expression, but as the mayor of a Birdman village, that reality was naturally hard to accept for Morphia.

「I can't believe it. Something like that is going to happen?」

「Well, don't make such a grim expression. For the time being, we brought these as a countermeasure.」

Their discussion was happening in the living room of the Kazane Cottage, and there were large and small Power Orbs in the room with them.

「With this, 10 years will become 100 years...? I'm grateful. No, grateful doesn't even begin to cover it. But that means my birthplace will be lost within the lifespan of my grandchildren... I'm sorry. I can't seem to calm down right now.」

Morphia uttered candid words and sat back in his chair. That situation couldn't be helped, and Kazane nodded. The adult group of Jinrai, Louise, and Mefirus were the only other members there, with Emily only present because she hadn't heard yet. Everyone could guess what Morphia was feeling, so they didn't say anything.

「The question is, how long will these extend the deadline?」

After giving Morphia some time, Jinrai spoke, and Louise nodded.

「There are more than we expected, and there are small Power Orbs as well, so since even the minor parts can also be replaced, I think it will be more than 100 years. Well, we won't know for certain unless we actually ask Butler No. 13-san.」

『That's right. Morphia-dono, perhaps you should also meet Butler No. 13. We'll tell you the right path through the ruins. You should be able to arrive without being hindered by the guardians.』

「I certainly want to request that.」

So saying, Morphia raised his head.

「But, well, in the end, the reason this island is in danger is because the Sky Emperor's Tower was lost, right?」

「Yes, the story was that the balance of the island's magical power flow was lost due to that, which caused a load to be applied.」

Louise nodded after Kazane's words.

「In short, it will be fine if we get the Sky Emperor's Tower back, right?」

「But we don't know where it is.」

「I think we'll be able to manage. As long as it hasn't moved from its original location.」

Kazane knew where it was in the game. There was a mountain called Mount Shumi in the northern Doma region. The mountain's peak was always covered in clouds, and the island was perched above it. Since the mountain was difficult to climb and the peak was always covered with clouds, the setting was that no one knew about the existence of the floating island.

「Well, even if it's not there, it's a big thing. I don't think it's something that can't be found if it's searched for. It wouldn't be us, but Husband and Hyvern's Archduke that would do the searching, though.」

It wasn't necessary for Kazane and the others to undertake everything. Kazane said that human wave tactics should be used for exploring a wide area.

「If it's found, I have a hunch that we can do something with this.」

So saying, Kazane took out the highest rank keycard.

「That's the Dragon Boat key... isn't it?」

Kazane nodded after Louise's question.

「But that's not all. To put it simply, it seems it has control priority over everything related to the ancient civilization Ishtaria.」

Kazane said. She had confirmed that earlier with the Appraisal Glasses she hadn't used in a long time.

「It seems this floating island can no longer be moved, but if the Sky Emperor's Tower is found, we might be able to bring it here with this.」

「In which case!?」

Morphia looked at Kazane.

「Yeah. First of all, let's go see Butler No. 13. We'll be able to confirm if I'm right, and after that, I think we'll go see Husband and talk to him about it.」

After that, Kazane and the others headed to the Vordo Ruins that very same day. They arrived at the Vordo Ruins that evening, and since they had received the map of the correct route from Butler No. 13, they didn't have to worry about attacks from Adamant Skull Ashuras, so they decided to enter the ruins with the entire White Party and Morphia this time.

◎ Vordo Ruins, Waiting Room

『OH MY, there's QUITE a CROWD here.』

Butler No. 13 uttered with no intonation when Kazane and the others suddenly entered the waiting room adjacent to the boss room.

Then, Kazane handed over all the Power Orbs except the one for the miniature Dragon Boat. It seemed there were more Power Orbs than Butler No. 13 had hypothesized. Apparently, Butler No. 13 and the other robots had become unable to contact the shipyard, so he hadn't known how many Dragon Boats were abandoned there. When the time guarantee of 200 years came out of Butler No. 13's mouth, Morphia was so relieved that his shoulders slumped. Even if it was only a delay, the 200-year postponement was large.

Then Kazane decided to successively tell Butler No. 13 what she had told Morphia at noon:

Recover the Sky Emperor's Tower and return it to the floating island.

Kazane had heard from Butler No. 13 that even after the Sky Emperor's Tower was separated, the area around the tower continued to float. In the first place, if it weren't for that, the Sky Emperor's Tower naturally would have fallen at the time of separation, but to sum it up, the split off area around the Sky Emperor's Tower had the same floating ability as the floating island.

The Sky Emperor's Tower was an important facility, and it seemed it was capable of standalone operation. And like Kazane predicted, they were told it was possible to operate the Sky Emperor's Tower with the keycard.

For the Sky Emperor's Tower, they would first search Mount Shumi according to Kazane's knowledge, and if it wasn't there, the search would continue. Moreover, Kazane had already emailed Ao and gotten agreement from Hyvern Dukedom and the East Dragon Village to undertake the search.

Butler No.13 said reattaching the Sky Emperor's Tower to the floating island would require manpower, and Morphia said the Birdmen would undertake that. They were the most related party. He didn't intend to simply leave it to others. Naturally, they would also be able to use manpower from Hyvern Dukedom and the East Dragon Village, so everything was worked out for now.

Also, after the discussion, Kazane and the others were given the reward for Butler No. 13's Power Orb collection request. It was called『Angel Bracelet』.

It was an Event Item from the final stage of Zexiahart's main scenario that turned the user into an Angel.

Kazane:「Angel Bracelet is an item that allows entering the last stage of Zexiahart's main scenario. It enables transforming into an Angel.」

Yumika:「That's the same as becoming a Birdman, isn't it?」

Kazane:「The Birdmen are simply the base. It seems it isn't exactly the same. In the game, it was only an Event Item for entering the last dungeon and couldn't be used normally, though.」

Yumika:「It can be used normally here?」


  1. Kazane's influence as dragon empress is real deal, she could move a nation to make search party to help her. (Considering the calamity it would cause if the island fell down, of couse hyvern dukedom had to accept the request)

  2. Thanks for the chapter.

    I wonder who will get the Angel Bracelet. My first guess is Yumika, followed by Kazane and then Tatsuo.

  3. Kazane could copy the power of the ring, just as he did with the warrior memories skill (get rid of oppai plus), and I think Yumika would keep the ring.
