Chapter 53: Momentary Thoughts Part 1

I was having a hard time understanding this.

「Hahaha…… This may be a first time for me to actually see that much money in one place. You said you wanted to buy medicinal herbs?」

When was the last time she was actually buying medicinal herbs? However, buying off items in humongous quantities was only showing just how serious she was when it comes to her plan.

「Consumable items…… I’m only buying them, someone else is going to use them……」

When was it that she finally started to get bored with this game?

It’s not like she was dissatisfied with the game. If it was like that, she would have stopped playing altogether. But here she was, still playing it.

Her joining the clan specializing in hunting powerful monsters may have something to do with it.

What she wants is the ultimate kind of thrill that the game can offer. Even though it would all be in real time though, her memories would immortalize those moments inside her head.

「The villains remain a threat until they get defeated, so buying items is a must to survive, nothing wrong or weird in going broke because of it……」

When she first found out about this game, everything here was so fresh and new and people were really excited about all this. However, since the patch that added serious demerits for practicing Player Killing, the guild slowly but surely began to change.

Stability and safety over thrill and danger seeking. Their guild was full of members who in the early days of the game would boast that as long as they were having fun they would be fine with gathering hate from virtually everybody around them. They even made a name for themselves placing third place on the ranking of PK guilds. But now the very same members were leaving. Both the guild and the game.

Now the guild was only comprising of her and a bunch of small fries that just weren’t fun to be around with altogether.

「Now then, what am I going to do about all this……?」

She knew that losing guild members was harsh. They didn’t want to suffer the penalties that come with killing other players, even if there was much glory to be had in doing that. After all, what other reason to practice PK than gaining glory from killing powerful people?

But when all the joys of Player Killing was restricted or straight up taken away, it was only natural that those who took delight in those things would no longer feel any need to stay within the game.

「Muu…… Playing the game normally is somewhat boring, but since I already invested my time in it, I might as well see this matter through to the end.」

Those who enjoyed the Player Killing may have been gone, but their money and trophies were still left behind, and it was the factor that was gathering around new players.

But seeing what the Guild was becoming nowadays…… The girl pondered quitting the game entirely more often than not.

So, why are you still playing the game? When asked that question, the girl would always answer with:

「Why? Because that thing…… I really want to bring it down.」

Now that she learned how to play the game properly, she was starting to discover more and more ways to have fun inside it.

But there was someone she couldn’t forgive. Of whom she was constantly jealous of. And if it required her to bring the entire game down on its knees to just destroy that person, that is what she was going to do.

「The time is running out on us…… If we don’t hurry it up with our plans, we might not be able to make it in time.」

I found her the missing paint that she required to finish her little painting. I don’t know if that paint is easily combustible, but…… no, I think now that it actually is.

At the same time I was busy with preparing a backup plan in case her plan would fail. Because if she was to fail and had nothing left for her, she would no longer feel obliged to keep logging in into the game.

Her anxiety must be overwhelming. She wants to bring down a formidable enemy, but is it entirely possible with only three people? She clasped her hands against her cheeks, as if to get rid herself of her anxieties.

「Just you watch me, Set-chan. No matter if I win or if I lose, I am going to give it my absolute all!」

At the current moment I was not a bird-headed Mercenary Sanraku. After finishing the boss battle against the Clown Spiders I decided to go back to Rabbitz and log out for a while.

Now I was an overly manly bearded Sanraku, a Swashbuckler proficient in using rapiers.

「It’s been a long time…… Since I last came here.」

It hasn’t been all that long ago since I last logged into “Shit Chronicles Online”, but for some reason it felt as though it’s been months. Ooups, need to focus now. If I don’t remain vigilant at all times I may be in for a nasty surprise.

「Umm, was the meeting to be held at Count Phalanx’s estate again?」

Surely there were lots of places with high level NPCs that would prevent the unwanted players from eavesdropping on our conversation…… But then the question still remains: why meet up there, of all places? …… Oh well, I guess trying to sneak my way around won’t do me any good. Might as well do this the old fashioned way.

I shall walk the path of this world just like the developers intended to…… By killing other players without mercy and with extreme prejudice.

「Good evening. Now die!」

「Yes, good evening. Now eat shit!」


Good, it seems that I didn’t lose my touch when it comes to critically striking the enemy’s weak spots using rapiers. It was a weapon that was perfect for assassinations.

Unlike ShangriLa Frontier, in this game death was instantaneous, and the player would turn into a pile of ash from which you could take every single item that was in his/her possession.

「Tsk….. Guess you can only do so much with basic equipment.」

In this game where everyone was basically a Player Killer, being the punch bag for others was actually a valid strategy. Beating some assilants would usually bring about a dozen more people after you. And if you beat that dozen people then there would be even more people after you before long. You would be a constant target for everyone around you.

「Haah, I don’t really have time for this……」
