Ch 87 Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hourou Meshi

Ch 87 -- Wyvern Attack part 2

There was a group of Guild staff members clustered near the reception desk. "Move aside, move aside!" the voice of the Guild Master separated the group. The figure of a blood-stained man lay on the floor in their midst. From the games I had played I remembered that Wyverns had a poisonous barb on their tail. The man seemed to have been stabbed in the abdomen with that sort of stinger. Blood was flowing from the wound and the skin around the hole was a horrible purple colour.

The Guild Master opened the bottle of Sui's Deluxe High-grade Potion I had given him and sprinkled it on the man's belly wound. The hole where the potion was sprinkled healed up as we watched and even the surrounding skin which had been purple returned to a normal skin color in a few moments.

"Wha, what's this... as soon as the wound heals, even the poisons are counteracted..." the Guild Master said, looking at me. No, I do not want you to look at me. I stared at the Guild Master, feigning ignorance. Don't ask questions, not here where there are so many nosy Adventurers around.

"Well, well, this fellow seems to be healing up. Take him to the aid room and put him in a bed to rest." The Guild Master instructed then called "Listen up!" to the gathered Adventurers.

"Right, as you people know," he loudly announced, "A pack of Wyverns have appeared. All C-rank Adventurers and higher are now conscripted to fight them, no exceptions. This is an urgent quest order from the guild!" On hearing the words of the Guild Master the Adventurers present started muttering to themselves dispiritedly.

"Quiet!" the Guild Master thundered. "I know that the idea of fighting Wyverns worries you, but if you don't fight them now they'll come and attack the town!" His voice softened. "It's what it means to be Adventurers, to fight for others. As Adventurers, let's go and save this town! "

Loud cheers greeted his words, the Adventurers excited by his call to arms. However my mind was still stuck on what he had said earlier, that all C-ranked Adventurers had to go fight the Wyverns? I'm a C-rank, aren't I?

"Wait, you lot." Fer said, having stayed silent until now. Fer's voice over-rode the loud voices filling the Adventurers Guild. Whispers started as they stared at Fer. "It's a Fenrir...?" "You sure, I though it was a Great Wolf?" and so on.

"Let us take care of that pack of Wyverns for you guys." What? What are you talking about, Fer?

"What's the problem?" Fer turned to me. "It will be good exercise for me, and I told you Wyvern's meat is delicious, remember?"

"No no, you didn't tell me." I lied desperately.

Fer turned to the Guild Master. "Hey you, when we deal with the Wyverns will they all belong to us?"

"Of course, of course," the Guild Master said in a relieved voice. "Wyverns that are subjugated belong to the ones who succeed in the task. Besides, if you subdue them we will pay you a subjugation fee too."

"Well in that case I'll go and take care of them right away. It's been a while since I could go all out in a fight." Fer was eager to get started but I wanted him to slow down. If I could have a quiet word before we go haring off...

"Hold on a minute and calm down, Fer." I said telepathically. "It's not for you to deal with these Wyverns, the people here will handle them. Just step back and let them do their jobs."

"Nu..." Fer whined. Whined?

"Are you going to fight, Aruji? Sui will fight too!-" Sui said telepathically as she poked herself out of the bag,

I heard more whispers from the Adventurers, "That, that Slime?" "Can you really have a Slime as a contracted beast?" and so forth.

"Morons. Sui is a Slime, true but if any of you tried to hurt her I'd destroy you all." When Fer spoke, the room went deathly quiet. Hey Fer, I know you're only trying to protect Sui and they all know you're a Fenrir now but maybe that's a bit over the top? Haa~, I suppose it's some kind of miracle that we've kept Fer's identity a secret as long as this. Well, saying that we've still got the letter from the royal palace promising us we won't be bothered. That should keep us out of trouble...

"Fer-sama, please save this town with your power." Saying that the Guild Master bowed to Fer.

"Yeah, I got it." Fer replied, nodding in agreement.

"Thank you Mukouda-san, too." Huh? Guild Master, are you not going to let me refuse? It was an official request now...

The Guild Master turned to the Adventurers in the room. "Let me make this clear to all of you. Do not bother or harrass Fer-sama and Mukouda-san. This country's rulers have proclaimed they are to be left alone, to go where they will and do as they will as long as they wish to stay here. That being the case the Adventurers Guild will offer them any assistance they require." He fixed them with a steely glare. "Understand?" The resulting silence was agreement of a sort. Well, the Guild Master certainly made things clear, didn't he?

"Hey, get on." said Fer.


"We're going to deal with those Wyverns." Fer said exasperatedly.

"No, no, just go by yourself, I'll be waiting here." I countered feebly.

"Idiot. After my exercise I'm gonna be hungry. If you're not around who's gonna cook dinner for me?" What, you want me to go into a danger zone where Wyverns are flying around just so you can eat a hot meal afterwards? "Right then, get on quick."

"Mukouda-san, the entire town is in danger. Please help us." Hey, Guild Master, are you going to sacrifice me too?

"Hurry it up." Fer was getting impatient and grabbed my collar with his teeth. "Whoops-" I fell onto Fer's back as he swung his head.

Hold on tight or you'll be shaken off." Fer warned me.

"Damn, why is it turning out like this-" I wailed silently, clinging to Fer's back for dear life. As we headed for the door I heard some Adventurers mutter things like, "We're saved" and "a pack of Wyverns, even if we were all C-rank, half of us would be killed." and such. Wyverns, are they really that dangerous?

"Well, let's go." said Fer as he dashed towards the gate leading to the western grasslands. Why is this happening to meeeeee--- !!!


  1. I'm first this time lol. Thanks for the chapter(Mukouda is turning chicken now)really appreciate it

    1. Well, in his defense, he is a cook not a warrior, though speaking of warriors I wonder what will be the role of the summoned heroes (idiots) in this story later

    2. I am wondering when they will appear(probably at lunchtime).

    3. LOOL I completely forgot about those heroes

  2. The only surprise to happen here is if there's a stronger wyvern or a dragon coming in that led those wyverns in the first place. Otherwise this is an easy win. The other things to look forward to is how many will Sui kill, how much meat they'll harvest, what Mukouda will cook with it and how much money they'll get.

    Fer is surprisingly protective of Sui. He's getting soft from getting fed delicious food and being Sui's Oji-san.

  3. Thanks!!!

  4. My opinon of the Mc dropped a bit with this chapter. I can understand not wanting to jump into danger, but dont try to let those other adventurers go to their deaths when Fer VOLUNTEERED to take care of it! Thats beyond cautious and straight into cowardly.

    1. How is that different from his other behavior, they signed up for "adventure" he only applied for the passport, and the help with dismantling Fer's kills.

    2. Don't forget he still a peaceful kind of guy. I think he still hasn't gotten use to fighting monsters and who would only after a short time frame ~pong

    3. I'd accept that if it were actually him doing any of the work, or if it the monsters werent currently coming to attack a town, that hes currently living in. Kind of makes it a moot point.

    4. Yes, mc it's too much of a coward.. And a little stupid too, he knows that the barrier will protect him and he will not fight 🙄

  5. >"Damn, why is it turning out like this-"

    Because Fer is hungry.

    Also Sui probably doesn't even need Fer's help if she was attacked.

  6. The MC has always been a coward. Also, he doesn't want another goblin town situation to happen again.

    Thanks for the chapter

    1. He is never in any danger... ever! He always has a barrier around him. Why is he being such a coward when Fer is going to do all the fighting and he can just hide behind the barrier...

    2. Because the author is only mediocre and does not know how to write character development or flesh out any actual personality. He can only write about cardboard cutout caricatures.

  7. the adventures of Uncle Fer the Fenrir, his 'niece' the slime, and his otherworldly (slave) cook continues XD

    thanks for the chapter :)

  8. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Rather than companion.. i feel like fer is more like mukouda's owner..

  9. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Sui poking out of the bag reminds me of Flubber.

  10. Thank you very much for the new chapter Albedo-sama!
    I agree that the MC is a cook rather tha a warrior but sometimes his cowardly nature lowers the novel's action and plot (always reading about his meals gets a lil boring), I just wanna see Sui kick ass!! Why doesn't author-san let her have some?

  11. Fer is like the annoying friend in the group that you cant refuse xD

  12. Finally caught up to the current release. Thanks for picking this up, Albedo. Great translation quality!

  13. Thank you for the chapter! Pelase keep up the good work! :D

  14. Oh good more bland repetition from the main 'character'. I wish the person writing this would at least try to include some actual development or personality. Nope, we get a story about the MC reacting in exactly the same way to the same situations over and over again along with some recipe descriptions likely copied over from food network's web page or something similar.

  15. Yeah, the whole cowardly MC routine is getting a bit ridiculous when he is constantly protected by 2 overpowered contract beasts plus the blessings of 4 goddesses AND is getting quite OP in his own right?
    He has no compunction about killing but he wants to let other weaker adventurers shoulder the danger without all of his benefits?
    I mean, the guy eats all that meat but acts like he's on a pure SOY BOY diet...

    1. The MC is probably written to appeal to such soy boy NEETs. Someone else does all the thinking, inventing, product development, hard lifting, and killing, but he just needs to cook and reap the benefits of becoming the next Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates.

      The author doesn't deal with the problems of technology proliferation and not even with the ideas of such fancy clear glass purchased from Net Super. Shampoos and conditioners contain quite a few different chemicals whose industrial processes are sophisticated for their purity levels, but of course the MC didn't invent any of those things as others have already done it for him. Even the actual sales of the products are handled by others for the MC. So the MC is never burdened by any details either. There's a limit to how much easy wealth lifestyle I can accept in a story. I suspect that soyboy neets would eat it all up and want more though.

  16. MC's cowardice is getting old. We need some character development.
