Greatest Alchemist? Chapter 34

Chapter 34: The Battle is Over

The intense battle is over, there were over 300 corpses and broken goblin dwellings strewn about in the site of the colony, and once we finished confirming that there were no surviving goblins, we finally took a breather.

Setting aside how my status could no longer be that of an artisan, Sophia, Maria, and Kaede’s statuses also had a sudden increase.
Maria’s status became that of an average veteran adventurer’s.

Among those, the most extreme change is Kaede’s.

「Master, Kaede’s evolution is done.」[1]

Kaede, who came out of the Subspace, has a spider body around 1 meter in size, and on top that is the white body of a little girl.
It seems her Race is called Arachne. Sophia and Maria were also surprised by this.
A white body, with white hair, and red eyes.

「How cute~ Kaede-chan.」
「That’s true, if you just look at her upper body then she’s just like a human.」

It seems she’s liked by Maria and Sophia as well.
I have to make her a shirt when we get back.

「Oh right, you two, 『Heal』『Heal』」

It doesn’t look like they’re injured but I cast Heal on them just in case, and then took out 3 Stamina Potions from my Item Bag and made everyone drink.

Fuu~~, want to drink Mana potions too?」
「My magic power will be fine with a bit of rest.」
「It’s the same for me.」

Our tired bodies were cured with Stamina Potions.
There I noticed that the three of us were covered by spurts of blood from head to toe. Sophia’s blond hair as well as Maria’s white skin were bathed in goblins’ blood.

「Purification」
「Purification」
「Purification」

I cast purifying magic on our entire bodies.

「Now then, it will be a lot but let’s collect the subjugation parts, shall we.」
「Takumi-sama, I think it would be better if you store and bring back the Goblin General and Goblin Knights as they are.」
「You have a point, we also have to report it to the guild, so having the whole body would make the discussion move faster.」

I stored Goblin General and all of the Goblin Knights into the item box like Sophia had suggested.

Collecting the goblins’ right ears and magic stones probably took the most time. In addition to their large number, due to the the surprise magic attack shot at the start, many of the bodies were no longer in their original form, and if I were still the me from the time in Japan then I would definitely have vomited.

「Takumi-sama, what do we do with the weapons the goblins used?」
「Hmm, the weapons that the Goblin General and Goblin Knights used were relatively decent so maybe we’ll collect those? I don’t think I’ll need the rusty swords and clubs though.」
「The greatsword used by the general is quite a sharp sword.」

Maria had come to ask what we should do about the collection of weapons, but the weapons of normal small-fry goblins are wooden clubs and swords or knives full of rust. However, according to Sophia who examined the Goblin General’s greatsword, it seems to be a good sword.

Greatsword of the Absorber
A magic / cursed sword that can absorb the magic power of the enemy it cuts.
The more magic power it absorbs, the more its attack power increases.

Looking at it with Appraisal, it seems it’s a magic sword[2].

「This would have been dangerous if it had cut me.」

During the intense battle with the Goblin General, I was fortunate enough to not have been injured, but my body shivered at the thought of not knowing how the battle would have turned out had the attack power of the magic sword increased.

「This sword, Sophia, you can’t use it, can you?」
「Yes, I have not used a greatsword.」

Having said that, I still had a feeling that selling this would be wasteful.

「Should I reforge it?」

This would probably be considerably hard to do, but I believe there’s nothing I can’t do. I could probably reforge it into a longsword that Sophia can use. I’ll store it in the Item Box for now and examine it carefully later.

「Well, cleaning up afterwards sure is troublesome.」

We couldn’t leave the bodies of goblins as they are. If a corpse, not limited to monsters, is left in a dark place, there is a possibility that it would become an undead, such as a zombie or a skeleton. So, it is proper etiquette for adventurers to burn the corpses of monsters after they defeat and finish dismantling them.

The three of us divided the work and gathered the corpses to one spot.
Kaede, who had evolved into an Arachne, manipulated multiple threads and reeled in the goblin corpses.
It was easy understand that Kaede’s expression was saying “praise me, praise me”, and Sophia and Maria would stroke her head and praise her each time.

「Kaede is helping?」
「That’s right, I’m grateful that Kaede is very helpful.」

Of course, I also stroke her head and praise her.

Maria and I set fire to what eventually became a mountain of goblin corpses with Fire attribute magic.
After everything burned to ashes, we sprayed down the site of the colony with Water attribute magic so it doesn’t turn into a forest fire and went on our way back to Volton.

And so, I went back thinking that although there were a few irregularities, our subjugation request was a success, but what I didn’t expect was a severe scolding from the guild master in the conference of room of the Adventures Guild later.

Translator’s Note:

Hi~ Thanks for reading! This is the last update until I get back from my trip. I’ll be back home by the 27th but will resume updates after resting for a day or two. I’ll see you all then!

  1. Cheers for the chapter!
    Kind of silly of you, ofcourse you’re going to be scolded as a d rank adventurer taking on a village and a goblin general…

  2. A couple tiny misses:
    “could no longer that” -> {could no longer be that}/{could no longer be considered that}
    “has spider body” -> {has a spider body}
    “Race is called an Arachne” -> {Race is called Arachne}

    Lol, Kaede is just 5 years old, and probably her intelligence is just starting to grow, so of course she’s like a kid, a very dangerous kid, but you can’t have everything.
    Thanks for the translation! God bless you!
