Chapter 37: Preparations

[Race] Goblin

[Class] Duke; Horde Chief

[Divine Protection] Goddess of the Underworld (Altesia)

[Subordinate Beasts] High Kobold (Lv1) Gastra (Lv1) Cynthia (Lv1)

The orcs could attack us at any time, and yet the situation inside the village isn’t favorable. Many in the village are dissatisfied and even the goblins themselves are in a shaky situation. But still… I can’t give up here.

I asked Lili and Reshia to investigate Gi Ga’s recent report. From their investigation, I found out that Gi Za was telling the truth.

That incident isn’t something to scoff at however. Its effect can be visibly seen in the humans. The fear that had once been stilled has once again risen in their hearts. The eyes they look at me, brimming with fear. But with the bad comes the good, and I now see Gi Za with a stronger sense of security. Not only is the goblin’s visage close to that of humans, but he also handled the previous situation excellently. Surely, I can rely on him more.

From now on I’ll most likely be relying on Gi Za’s horde of druids whenever I leave, but I still need to make more goblin rares. I’ll be needing them to achieve my goals.

Goblins get smarter as they evolve. A single class up can make a huge difference. You could liken it to the dispersing of a great, thick fog within the mind of the goblins, freeing them from a rabid thirst. The more goblin rares I have, the less chances there will be of such incidents as the one before from occurring. Moreover, in this way, I can also strengthen my army. 

As for the village, Gi Za’s proven that I can rely on him, so I’ll be leaving the protection of the village in his and his druids’ hands. If possible, I’d like to avoid any friction in the village as there’s a pressing issue that needs to be addressed: How do I deal with the maddened orcs?


[Level] 1

[Possessed Skills] <> <> <> <>

[Attributes] None

I took a look at the description for the new skill <>.


“Yes,” the goblin nodded exaggeratedly.

When it comes to waiting, patience is a must. 

Or in Reshia’s words, she would laugh and say, “Good! You finally understand what it’s like to be me, always being made to wait by you!” 

Although, I do think this is more of a problem of character. Goblins, you see, prefer striking to waiting. 

Yesterday, I thought of having the goblins do a mock battle. After much pondering, I finally thought of how to do it. And so I ordered Gi Ji and the druid, Gi Za, to partake in my new training.

Each of them are to take five groups of three man cells under them, totaling to 15 goblins under each of their lead. 

They are to be equipped with wooden swords and spears, while I made sure to instruct Gi Za to hold back on the magic. After all, I wouldn’t want anyone to die. That’d be troubling.

When the goblins finished their “Day of Fear”, I had them line up, and when I counted 30 goblins, I had them prepare. Mock battle on this scale is extremely rare amongst goblins. When the old goblin saw it along with the other goblins, they were alarmed. But shortly after, they quieted down and only watched attentively. Lili, Reshia, and the other humans also watched with interest.

In order to differentiate the two groups, I had the goblins on Gi Za’s side paint their arms red, while the other group was left colorless. 

Then after confirming that the goblins were ready, I gave the signal to start.


At that, the colorless group led by Gi Ji gathered into a lump as they ran.

The goblins prefer striking over defending. That fact was truly embodied in Gi Ji’s decision to charge madly.

“Go!” Yelled Gi Ji. “Win and the king will reward us!”

Spurred by the prospect of being rewarded, Gi Ji lead his horde as he charged toward his foe.


But in response, Gi Za only had his horde raise their spears forward.

Being able to instruct them with such few words, it seems he’s been training his goblins well.

“Raise your spears!”

At Gi Za’s command, the goblins under Gi Za all uniformly raised their spears toward the sky.


Did he calculate the distance? I thought to myself. And as if responding to that question, the raised spears all struck down toward the incoming horde.

Pained cries rose, and many goblins fell, but still the colorless horde charged.

“Again! Swords!”

At Gi Za’s command, the red horde raised their spears once more. And at his command, the goblins wielding wooden swords went around the colorless horde, and attacked them from their flanks.


Gi Ji grappled with the spearmen of the red horde, unfazed by the strikes of the wooden spears. He swung his sword as he pleased, and no one could stop him. But the red horde struck from the flanks, and the frontline was pushed.

“Surround them!”

The red horde allowed the colorless horde to take their distance, but meeting them at the back was the red horde’s swordsmen. With his horde surrounded, Gi Ji lost the fight.

“That’s enough!”

At my command, the goblins kneeled and their heads bowed.

Just as expected, the gap between a goblin rare like Gi Za who has had experience as a chief of a horde and someone like Gi Ji who has just become a goblin rare is big.

I want to lead a horde of goblins to fight against a goblin that’s above the goblin rare class, so I need to train these goblins and produce some results.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s hunting or fighting. When it comes to teaching, the best way it to take a step yourself.
