The brief respite during the war was a valuable time . Thanks to it I was able to return to the western region after fortifying the borders .
After all the battles we’ve been through, it wouldn’t have been strange if I evolved, but nothing happened .
Maybe it’s the class limit, but I don’t know . After all, none of my subordinates have gotten this far in their evolution .
Hence, there’s really no point in thinking about it . If there was a known way around it, that would be another story, but alas… It’s better to just put it off for now, at least until after I’ve dealt with the more pressing mountain of problems before me .
We just defeated Elrain Kingdom’s army the other day, but that victory was already discussed at Sanktfall, the meeting of the feudal lords, where the continued cooperation between us and the feudal lords was confirmed, as well as the benefits of our cooperation .
Zaurosh, who was now truly our ally, reported to me the contents of their meeting, and I nodded in response . Actually, I really need to find out just how much the small feudal lords can be trusted since they aren’t like the goblins who follow me absolutely . Of course, if they try to collude with the enemies and revolt against me, then I’ll have to deal with them more harshly .
“Your Majesty, it is time,” Gi Za said .
“Very well,” I replied .
When Gi Za called out to me, I remembered that I still had to perform our usual practice of giving names, which I have been doing these past few days . Of course, I also mustn’t forget to check the classes of the goblins while at it .
Speaking of which, Gi Za himself has also evolved and now looks different .
Class Wizard; Subleader
Possessed Skills Flowing Magic Control; Three-Verse Chant; Five Arias; Chant Cancel; Guidance of the Goddess of Knowledge; Wind Guard; Adherent of the King; Wind Control; Ether Transference; Trickery
Divine Protection Wind God
Abnormal Status Haunted/Possessed
With the addition of the Five Arias, it is now possible to control even greater ether .
Incur the hate of those of the light elements . (WEAK)
As your knowledge increases, it will eventually be possible to speak multiple languages .
Considering his new skills, he seems suited to be a staff officer . The humans won’t like him very much, but he should be among goblins .
Still, I have to say . His looks are really starting to resemble that of humans or elves . Pale countenance, a pair of razer-sharp eyes, and long gray hair tied together that probably functions as a place to store ether .
Why did he end up looking like this? I wonder .
He looks so much like a human that it makes one wonder whether he’s truly a goblin .
Slender and yet strong .
Of course, there were certainly some very curious parts, but I purposely refrained from saying anything .
That damned vixen, Altesia!
Name Gi Ji Arsil
Possessed Skills Throw Projectile; Overpowering Howl; Assassin's Blade: Sword Mastery B-; Savage Dog's Nose; Bat Ears; King's Eye; Garment of Darkness; Shadow Walker
Divine Protection Night God (Ya Jansu)
Abnormal Status Haunted/Possessed
Approach the enemy without being noticed and inflict fatal damage from behind . (MEDIUM)
Garment of Darkness
Due to the divine protection of the night god, the darkness shall help you evade a fatal wound . (MEDIUM)
When ordered by the king, your ability to search for enemies is bolstered . (MEDIUM)
Charm toward those of the dark element . (WEAK)
Gi Ji is always at the battlefield, so it comes to no surprise that he evolved . Maybe it’s because he’s a goblin inclined to scouting that he gained the night god’s divine protection . His attribute is darkness too . It doesn’t look like he’s being influenced by his divine protection, though, at least based on his normal behavior .
Is that because he’s a duke class? Or is Gi Ji’s self control just that good? Regardless, this is a good development since it means that as one evolves, the less influence the divine protection will have on one’s psyche .
Until now I’ve been ignoring it, but considering how difficult the coming battles are, it might be time to start looking for a way to gain divine protections .
VOLUME 3: CHAPTER 194 – REST DAY (2/2)
Name Gi Zu Ruo
Possessed Skills Overpowering Howl; Throw Projectile; Spear Mastery B+; Instant Kill; Mad Dragon; Bite; He Who Makes Blood Rain; Bloodbath
Divine Protection Zu Oru (Mad God)
Activates when a comrade dies . Upon activation, all attributes are raised . (MEDIUM)
He Who Makes Blood Rain
As you grow excited with each kill, so does your stamina regeneration increases . (LOW)
Gi Zu is a 3rd generation goblin, but he has already become a duke class . The reason for this is because he is easy to use, so I always put him in the front lines . But it’s also because of that that he now has countless scars all over his body . As for how he managed to get this far without losing a limb, perhaps it’s simply because of his good luck . Gi Zu is also remarkably bigger than others and can often be mistaken for a lord class .
He is currently in the middle of recovering his wounds, but he should be up and running the next day . His regenerative capabilities are quite frightening . If that’s not the reason why he heals so fast, then perhaps Kazan’s medicine is the reason .
Goblins have naturally high regenerative capabilities, which is why they know little about medicine .
But for the weak Gordob goblins, whether they like it or not, many of them choose to pursue medicine . They store up knowledge from the elven village and use that knowledge to help their fellow goblins . To the goblins, they are a treasure .
As of now, the goblin army cannot be without Kuzan’s medicines .
Gaidga’s valor, Paradua’s loyalty, Ganra’s dexterity, and Gordob’s intelligence . The four goblin tribes have begun to develop toward their own specialties . They may be few in number, but there’s no doubting that they have become a significant power within the army .
Multiplying their numbers would be best, but feeding them via hunting has its limits . Many farming experiments have been done in the western region . Depending on the results, it might be possible to further increase their numbers .
As one might expect, the best teachers on farming are none other than humans . Unfortunately, most of them cower when I ask them questions . I know it’s obvious they would, but still…
We’re currently communicating with them through Yoshu, but they just say vague stuff like the boon of farming is due to the favor of the weather .
I don’t know what to do with them .
But, hmm… In that case, I wonder how the present technology is able to improve the seeds? I’ll have to ask Yoshu to check on that later .
I received a report, stating that Gi Gu Verbena has returned to the Fortress of the Abyss after taking over the land southwest . The report also mentions that a terrifying flesh eating horse, an andoryu sarkus, and a giant dirty two-horned cow, an arsinoe, has gone on a rampage .
The beast tamers under Gi Gu tried to catch them but spectacularly failed . They had no choice but to flee with their tail in between their legs . When Gi Gi heard that, his eyes sparkled as he expressed his desire to accompany Gi Gu next time .
It’s good that he’s eager, but I wish he could put that energy into stabilizing the southern frontlines instead .
If we could create a deadlock for some period of time, then I could set aside some time to catch some new beasts to add to our army .
Gi Gi’s monster army has been particularly active in the southern frontlines . At the very least, the reports from Gi Ji has been increasing in regards to the damage they’ve dealt to fleeing humans .
That being said, the goblins in the main force don’t really pursue the enemy humans much in order to conserve their strength for the actual battles, so the beasts have a relatively easier time accruing achievements on that front .
The western region has mostly been peaceful . This is all thanks to Gi Ga’s efforts, or if not, then perhaps because of Yoshu and Fei who are supporting him . Regardless, things have been going well in the western region . A good news .
One could say that we’ve started to form the rough skeleton of a vassalage . What’s next is to attach some meat to it .
When I went to visit Shumea, who’d been injured from the last adventurer attack, she was playing with the children in a field of flowers .
“Are your wounds alright?”
“I’m not a goblin, so it’ll take more than a day for them to recover!”
She was watching over the children while making a wreath when I asked her the question, but she just gave me a bitter reply in response .
“I’m going to visit the grave of the children that died . Are you coming?”
“…No, I have to reform our defensive lines . ”
As I said that I plucked a nearby flower .
Perhaps this is hypocrisy, but still, I ignored the whispering voices and handed that flower to Shumea .
“Well, if you’re fine with that, then alright, but I believe that praying for the dead is something that’s done for the sake of the living . ”
As Shumea took the flower with a bitter smile, I turned my back to them .
I heard the children’s voices as they surrounded Shumea .
“Is that the king of the monsters?”
“That’s right . He is the king . The king of goblins . ”
I could hear the cheerful voices of the children even from far away .
Right . I am the king .
I walk a path dyed in blood . Countless goblins, demihumans, and humans shall litter that path . And the humans that died in my hands, directly or indirectly, shall too . Everything is for the sake of my dominion . So long as I can take the world, then I won’t mind even if I lose my soul . My hands have long been stained . It’s too late to turn back… Or else, for what purpose shall all my subordinates, whom I’ve killed, serve?
That’s why… Until that day, I will neither apologize to anyone nor pray to any god .
That hero with a holy sword probably died after incurring that wound .
So what is there to fear!?
Gather the forces and set course for the south!
As emotions rose from within, I grasped my fist tightly . Verid’s symbol squirmed as it sensed the coming of another battle .
This is the path of a king .
The path of one who seeks dominion over all!
My flickering resolved lit anew, I stepped firmly on the ground .
