First Outer World Story Series: The Black Mist that Devours - Chapter 66
Translator: MadHatter Editor: MadHatter
Let’s start with the immediate situation after Ichiko was sent away.
“Haa. I never dreamed that penguins would strike me…”
It has been three days since I was whisked away to this location. As I drew near the coast, I was confronted with penguin-shaped monsters that were larger than the average penguin, with metalized arms that were as acute as swords, accompanied by their carcasses in great numbers.
As for why they attacked me, it was not apparent. However, when they spotted me, they abruptly lunged at me. It may be that they have been under orders to assault any living creature that comes in sight of them.
“I have no option but to eliminate them now that they have discovered me in this state. Come, ≪Sword of the Formless King・Weak≫.”
As I gathered more metals from the ground around me and from the penguin’s arm (Let’s call them Edge Penguin), I produced a sword.
That sword was a conventional Western sword in shape. While it was referred to as a longsword with no decorations, the inner substance was a type of magical sword with sharpness unmatched by regular swords.
In fact, several Edge Penguins seized the opportunity to charge at me while I was generating the weapon, but I lightly side-swiped them all in half with my newly generated sword.
As a consequence of my metamorphosis into a half-Demon King, ≪Sword of the Formless King・Weak≫ had taken the place of ≪Short-range Teleportation≫. It was possible that it was branded “weak” because I was not a pure Demon King, but rather a half-Demon King, therefore it had been weakened to fit the criteria.
I can convert any metal in my proximity into a sword and teleport myself and the blade I was wielding to any spot within a 25-meter radius as a corollary of this ability.
Then another one lunged at me, and I teleported my sword to that Edge Penguin’s head after dodging its assault.
The sword then appeared to bisect the Edge Penguin’s head, rendering it dead. This was the nightmarish aspect of this skill. Although the exact conditions were unclear, if another object was present at the teleportation location, it seemed to sever through it.
The sword was then generated in my hand utilizing the material from the teleported sword. It appeared that I can teleport the sword away from me and back into my hand in this manner.
While I would say that Kurokiri’s misty body was quite a cheat, I supposed that my skill was also a cheat. This skill was still classified as “weak” despite its faculty.
Since several of their companions were slain at the same time, the nearby Edge Penguins were fueling a commotion. But they didn’t appear to have any intention of escaping.
“Now then, let me verify the extent of the half-Demon King’s power.”
Producing a second sword from the carcass of the Edge Penguin I had just defeated, I wielded it in my left hand and assumed two swords style.
And so a one-sided battle has initiated in which I wreak havoc on monsters whose official names I didn’t even have a clue about.
Carcasses, carcasses, and carcasses. As far as I could distinguish, the whole vicinity was awash with the carcasses of Edge Penguins.
I quit counting after 50, but the number may have exceeded 1,000. In any case, if a single spot was 1, the number of dead bodies was about 7.
Well, it would be a hassle if I am attacked again, so shall I ponder on the future while moving on?
Now, while I was fighting, I recognized that the specifications of my body were as atypical as its status. Even the out-of-dungeon correction seemed to function only to the same extent as for ordinary kin. And it would be swifter to show specific statuses, right? Here is what it looks like:
Name: Ichiko (Blade Princess of the Undefined Sword)
Class: Half-Demon King
Race: Half-Kirijin・ Blade Princess of the Undefined Sword
≪Sword of the Formless King・Weak≫, ≪Mist Cloak・Thin≫, ≪Monster Create・Low Rank≫, ≪Dagger Proficiency Ⅰ≫, ≪Decapitation≫, ≪Keen Edge≫, ≪Long Edge≫, ≪The Lord Will Exercise His Power in My Path≫, ≪Enchanting Mist≫, ≪The Lord Transcends Reason for My Sake≫
≪The King of the Black Mist’s Kin≫, ≪Assassin of the White Mist≫, ≪Demon Slayer≫, ≪Mist King’s Representative≫, ≪Favored Princess of the Mist King≫, ≪Blade Princess of the Undefined Sword≫, ≪The One Who Encountered the God of Calamity≫, ≪Decapitated Princess≫ etc.
Depending on how one perceived it, it may be lower in status than the Demon King, but I believed it was far more stable than the Demon King because I can normally wander outside the dungeon.
Nonetheless, both my name and race have been changed spectacularly. “Blade Princess of the Undefined Sword” was my current race and official name, but I wondered what this meant. Sword and blade made sense given my unique skills, but I didn’t grasp the meaning of “undefined”.
And I spotted something like a building.
If my assumption is accurate, this place is quite a nuisance, so I hope there are some handy tools here…
With these thoughts in mind, I headed for that building.
