Chapter 008: Welcome Party and Encroaching Darkness

Translator: Tseirp

 

I thought that my life would change slightly when I was dispatched to the Adventurer’s Guild.

My training continued the same as before and I cast magic on the adventurers for free.

“ … It’s the same as before.”

“Of course it’s the same. That’s because Luciel’s job is just to heal. And you still want to do combat training right?”

“Of course. I must raise my survival rate by even just a little.”

“If that’s the case then hang in there for one year. If you do so then you can survive when you encounter a low level thief.”

“I’ll take your word on it.”

“Then shall we head for dinner.”

“Sure.”

Instructor Broad and I moved towards the dining hall Grulga partitioned off.

 

“Our Adventurers Guild’s Healer has arrived.”

I heard that announcement the moment I stepped into the dining hall and was greeted with applause.

“Eh?” Upon checking, I found that they were the guild staff who should be off-duty and my adventurer acquaintances.

“Why are you surprised? If you have been dispatched to our Adventurer’s Guild then you are a temporary staff. Of course, there would be a welcome party.”

Instructor Broad said with a hearty laugh.

“Have a sit.” Grulga-san came out from the kitchen holding a mug filled to the brim with Object X in his hands.

“Erm, do I have to drink that after all?”

“Of course?”

“All right.” I received the mug and drank it all down in one gulp.

 

Within the exclamations of “Amazing─” or “As expected, he’s a huge masochist”, there was “In addition to taste disorder, even his sense of smell is broken?”

That came from the fellow adventurers.

 

I wanted to refute that but I could not find my voice because I was experiencing the backlash from drinking it in one go.

 

“Oh yes. Luciel, you are prohibited from drinking alcohol.”

“Why?” I endured the disgusting taste left in my mouth as I asked.

“Because it might react too strongly such that you won’t be able to wake up tomorrow?”

“No way~” I lamented the unfairness of not being able to drink alcohol at a welcome party.

(Oh, I had not drunk any alcohol since coming to this world.) I recalled as I heard, “In exchange, you can ask for second servings for any of the dishes served as well as Object X.”

 

“As you’d expected, I can’t take any more of that?”

“What, you can properly taste that it is bad?”

“If that’s the case then why do you drink it?”

“He’s a masochist after all.” They whispered. Oi adventurer-sans? I can hear everything, you know?

“All right. Then Luciel, would you please say something.”

“Ah, yes. I’ll be in your care for a year. As a temporary staff, I will strive to increase the survival rate of all of you adventurers by even a little. Cheers!”

““““““Cheers~!!”””””””

Thus my welcome party took place.

 

“Hey Luciel, I have something I’d like to ask.” The B-rank Bazzan-san who I helped out previously asked while looking like it was something hard to say.

“What is it?”

“Are you gay?”

“ ‘Cough choke’ What are you asking all of the sudden!! I am extremely normal. I like girls like a normal guy.”

“Oh. I am relieved. It’s because you are always with Instructor Broad and rarely interact with the beautiful receptionists.”

“Ha~ Even though love is important, staying alive in this world is hard. This past year to raise my survival rate, I didn’t have time for love.”

 

“Huh~ That is too philosophical for such a young person like you. It is also important to do more exhilarating things when you are young.”

“That is true. But, although I’m accustomed to it now, from where I lived nobody walked about carrying weapons. For around half a year after coming to this city, I was living in fear.”

 

“Hahaha, you dare to drink that but are scared of the adventurers. You really are unbalanced.”

 

“No no, I won’t die by drinking that but if I got tangled up with an adventurer when I just came to the city, I could only imagine death in my future.”

 

“I don’t think there’s anybody in this city who would pick a fight with you who heads towards Broad-san like a zombie. Well if anything happens leave it to me.”

“Thank you very much.”

“So Bazzan, is Luciel-kun gay?” The two who formed a party with Bazzan-san, Skyros-san and the man of few words Basra-san called out to him.

“Ha~ I like women okay.”

“Happiness escapes as well when you sigh you know.”

“Whose fault is that?”

“Hahaha. Then next time, we’ll bring you out to play at night.”

“There’s that kind of establishment in this city?”

“Oo~ you took the bait. Yes, there are. Well for Luciel-kun, you stand out so if you don’t disguise yourself, rumors will likely spread in no time.”

“ … Please let me reconsider it after all.”

When they saw my depressed expression, the three of them roared with laughter and ordered some ale.

Thus my welcome party lasted until late at night.

The next morning when I woke up, I tried chanting the magic I just memorized.

Middle-ranked healing magic Middle Heal healed about three times the amount of Heal while only consuming 1.5 times the MP.

Beginner-ranked area recovery magic Area Heal healed the same as a regular Heal in a radius of 2 meters around me. My current regular Heal effects had increased and the MP consumption for Area Heal was three times that of Heal.

Beginner-ranked barrier magic Attack Barrier reduced the damage of physical attacks while Magic Barrier reduced the damage of magic attacks. Both consumed 10 MP each.

Middle-ranked barrier magic Area Barrier deployed an Attack Barrier and Magic Barrier to people within a 2-meter radius from me but was incapable of blocking out monsters.

“Even so doing this in the morning is ridiculously harsh. Area Barrier costs 30 MP. Is there a better way to use this?”

While meditating, I often thought about methods of using magic.

 

 

While Luciel was studying his magic, a shouting voice sounded from within a clinic in Meratoni.

“You bastard, what the heck do you mean by this? Why are both the income and slave numbers half of previous years!!”

A middle-aged man dressed in a white robe with a protruding belly wearing jewelry from top to bottom ranted in anger.

“I apologize. But master, the healer in the Adventurer’s Guild that I mentioned earlier is related to this matter.”

One man stepped out on behalf of the others and answered while lowering his head.

“Then why were there no measures taken? All of you incompetent people.” 『Ga~n』 『Karan Karan』

An expensive-looking decorated cup was thrown towards the man.

The man did not avoid it as the cup hit his forehead which began to flow with blood.

The man began to speak slowly.

“It’s an excuse but the targeted healer only left the Adventurer’s Guild 4 times in a year. I could not even get into contact.”

“If that’s the case then won’t it be fine if you went directly to the Adventurer’s Guild.”

“ … He has mock battles with the Adventurer Guild’s guild master day and night. In addition, when he is sleeping, high-rank adventurers were on standby in front of his room so we couldn’t move our hand.”

“Damn it. Both that Adventurer’s Guild and that healer are so damn annoying. Why did such a person appear? Something must be done as soon as possible. Oi! Convene the people under the Healer’s Guild.”

“Yes. “ The man left the room.

 

Thus people who deemed that Adventurer Guild’s healer Luciel was a nuisance began to appear at last.

      why can he just kill a low lvl monster so that he can boost he’s stats myghad

  2. Thanks for the chap~!!!
    Finally, the expected reaction appear! I was in doubt about continue this novel since for a whole year there is nothing accident created by other healer. Knowing in advent guild a free heal so those arrogant bastards income should've decreased.

  3. Thanks for the chapter! 🙂 Is he ever gonna explain himself, now people think he's gay and other people are out to get him for no reason. Wonder how long it takes him to get his first other world kill

  10. [A Wild Plot Enters!]

    I guess his habit of staying inside and training like crazy was part of his Luck, since without it someone would have already bumped him off. 🙂

  11. Op guild master.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  12. Thanks for the chapter Tseirp!

      I don’t quite understand why the “number of slaves” was affected by the MC, the income could be plausible since the MC is providing free services to adventurers (who would probably be one of the clinics’ main clients) but slaves? Do they turn those who can’t pay into slaves? or is it in the sense that the person who cannot pay is in debt and is therefore a “slave” because he has to use the money he earns to pay the debt

      • The clinic charges exorbitant amounts to make people unable to pay and fall into debt which makes them debt slaves

  13. alexorario

    Thank you for the chapter!

  14. Luciel left the the Adventurer’s Guild 4 times in a year!? No wonder he was called a hikkimori.

  15. Al

    I get the taste comments and possibly thinking he’s gay but not the hentai or why adventures are there if he was took to the staff room. Wonder how much he makes a day

  16. aFallenLeaf

    So….He’s actually being protected despite taken an advantaged of?
    Hmm need more~
    Thanks for the chapter!

  17. Weasalopes

    He’s not being taken advantage of.

    His stats as a Healer have increased far more rapidly than they would have otherwise. And, he’s learned far more than he would have if he’d joined a clinic; in a clinic, they wouldn’t be handing him anywhere near as wide a variety of cases as he’s being given by the Adventurers Guild.

    He’s gained considerable martial skills, and been trained in most of the support functions of the Adventurers Guild.

    All of his expenses have been covered, plus some.

    Care to think what the normal charge would be for intensive daily training with the Guild Master? Not cheap, at all!

  18. There really are some of THOSE in each guild eh. Wonder what Luminaria think of that.
    Also, half the slaves ? Like, they debt-slave people who can’t afford the healing ?

    • someone

      This is my second time reading this and I was wondering about that. Thanks.

  19. Hiraite Neko

    Ufufu.. Well of course no one would come to an expensive clinic if there is a medic inside the adventurer guild who heals for free.
