VRMMO no Shien Shokunin ～Top player no Shikakenin～ - Chapter 140
If I had to speak from the result, we had no trouble at all fighting the 『Harpy』.
After a 『Blast Arrow』 buffed by 『Attack Up』, the Harpy’s HP was gone.
It’s lv 28 after all…on top of that, it seems like its stats lean toward speed and attack. When Yumir dealt a counter, she shaved off a lot of its HP in a single attack.
After being penetrated by the bolt with high offensive power, the Harpy fell to the ground and its body dispersed in particles of light.
「Good work everyone. If we are fighting a low lv opponent, we have an easy even with only 3 people huh?」(Hind)
After I said that, both of them sheathed their weapons and came over.
「Secchan’s accuracy is amazing?」(Yumir)
「That’s not the case at all. It’s because Yumir-san does a great job at attracting the monsters.」(Selene)
「Is that so? I guess that’s right! Wahahaha!」(Yumir)
「You sure are a happy fellow…」(Hind)
She gets this happy after being complemented after all.
I’m sort of jealous of it, but not at the same time.
When I shifted my gaze towards a spot a bit further away where sounds of fighting were coming, I saw that the Baby Bird party’s fight was also in its final stage.
The plan is for Tobi and Riizu not to help out more than it’s needed, after Riizu places debuffs on the monster they just support them only when it’s necessary.
If Riizu used darkness magic she would be able to stop the monster in its tracks and they would immediately be able to finish it off but…that kind of playing style wouldn’t be fun.
「Lyco, I’m ready to go!」(Sai)
「Got it, I’ll fall back.」(Lyco)
「Let disrupting it to me.」(Siesta)
The pattern the girls used to obtain victory was using 『Arrow Rain』 on the Harpy directly after releasing the light element magic 『Heavens Ray』.
As expected of the coordination between those three, it’s beautiful.
The Harpy was pierced by the multitude of arrows and turned into a hedgehog and then vanished.
They sheathed their weapons and Cineraria-chan was the first one to rush over here.
「Hind-senpai. With the help of both of them, we were able to safely finish the fight.」(Sai)
「OK. A break…I guess we don’t need it? Alright, let’s just proceed then.」(Hind)
When I looked at everyone’s expressions, their mood had changed because they had gone into a fight and looked as if they had energy to spare.
Traveling was boring and since the situation had changed they felt a bit of relief.
…I guess we can only play for around 2-3 hours more tonight.
We should proceed smoothly and try to get as close to the sea as possible.
「What is it?」(Hind)
Once I tried going towards the horses we left a bit further away from the place we fought at, Yumir pulled me from the hems of my clothes.
Then she pointed with her finger towards another place, when I followed with my gaze…the party that was fighting before we started fighting the Harpies was still there.
Even though the HP bar of the Harpy was still over 50%, they were already running out of breath.
「So those guys are still fighting…」(Yumir)
「Seems to be a mid lv party that’s around lv 25.」(Hind)
「…They are asking for help though.」(Yumir)
「If we could join I wouldn’t really mind helping them but…unfortunately, they are already a 5 man party. If you have any complains, tell the developers that created such a system.」(Hind)
「…You are being called a monster though?」(Yumir)
「Tsk. Let’s not make eye contact with them and get away. There’s nothing we can do.」(Hind)
「True Self, you are useless!」
「Shut up, you idiots, idiots! You should just go and get wiped-…ah…」(Hind)
「…Don’t mind it, Hind.」(Yumir)
That Heavy Warrior, he’s clearly someone that is from the BBS.
He noticed who we were after all…sigh.
Anyway, I don’t even feel sorry for them anymore, so I got on the Grado Turk and we left that place.
After that we left the mountains, crossed a river and made progress by crossing a bridge.
In terms of difficulty, it was easier than the time we went towards the Royal Capital of Waaha in Sala. We were able to safely reach the Mahl Republic.
We have recently passed through two villages in the Mahl Republic, the next one will finally be the port, which is our destination.
The Mahl Republic is formed from the linkage of multiple islands via bridges, originally, each island was its own country…or so is the setting.
Even now, we are crossing a huge wooden bridge that connects the islands.
「Fuh, we sure ran all over the place. Only a bit further! Unlike the desert, this is some invigorating heat.」(Tobi)
「The smell of the sea breeze…as expected of how they recreate stuff. The sea is emerald green and is so pretty.」(Riizu)
「But since it’s emerald green as far as our eyes can see, wouldn’t that mean that we won’t be able to fish tuna unless we go further in the open sea?」(Hind)
Hearing my words, Riizu made a gesture as if she was thinking for a split second and replied like this.

「Let’s see. If it’s emerald green it means that the seawater…is low in plankton and also the depth is shallow. As expected, we will probably have to go a certain distance into the open sea.」(Riizu)
「This area is very shallow after all. It would be perfect to play on the beach but…we’ll need a ship after all.」(Hind)
「Beach!? Playing!? There was that option! …De-degozaru!」(Tobi)
「W-What’s wrong? Tobi-kun.」(Selene)
「Ah, nothing…Hind-dono! Hind-dono! Over here!」(Tobi)
Tobi was calling me over with his hand so I broke rank and approached him on my horse.
Then our heads got closer to each other and Tobi said this in a low voice.
What is this guy even saying?
「We should make some swimsuits and play around on the beach before the event starts! It’s going to be fun for sure!」(Tobi)
「…Yup. I can see that playing around is just a cover up. What are you scheming?」(Hind)
「I want to look at girls wearing swimsuits! Even though it’s just a coincidence, we have such a high lv line up here and I can’t even look at them! It would be a waste to let such a perfect chance let go!」(Tobi)
「Are you an idiot?」(Hind)
「You(in English), you call yourself a man!?」(Tobi)
「That’s not the issue here. Are you asking me to go around asking everyone’s size to make them? I refuse. Before we even talk about if it’s possible or not, they’ll look at me with cold gazes.」(Hind)
「Even if they are not arranged, there’s the chance that blueprints exist right!?」(Tobi)
I wonder if swimsuit blueprints exist…
If they existed and the size adjustment system worked, it’s true that there would be no need to ask their sizes.
「No, wait a moment? There’s also the possibility that the NPC shops in the port sell them…?」(Tobi)
「You sure are persistent. Where is that enthusiasm even coming from? You, weren’t you satisfied a while back with Maou-chan?」(Hind)
「I have another stomach for this!」(Tobi)
「Aren’t you the worst!?」(Hind)
「In that case, let’s have a bet! If blueprints really exist, I’ll have you make 6 of them! On top of that, you’ll have to skillfully convince everyone to wear them! Same thing if they are being sold!」(Tobi)
「I see. So, what happens if there’s none? There’s no betting if there’s no conditions for both sides.」(Hind)
「Eh? Eh…I’ll treat you to the most expensive coffee in Wacchi’s cafe!」(Tobi)
「Alright, I’m in!」(Hind)
「Ah! Wait, that one doesn’t count!」(Tobi)
「I won’t wait!」(Hind)
I won’t really tell him to buy a Black Ivory, but I’ll have him treat me to a slightly expensive coffee if I win.
That being said, I’ll check the sewing set and see if the blueprint exists when we reach the port.
Then, we finally reached the boss fight in 『Cresciente Coast』 right before our objective, 『Notos Port』.
The opponent was lv 35 and called 『Fortis Pagurus』.
It was an hermit crab.
Yumir’s 『Burst Edge』 pierced through the hermit crab’s shell.
The magic power imbued in the blade ran throughout the shell and in the next moment…the shell and its contents exploded.
Since it had been a while since she had this feeling of using a powerful skill, Yumir was smiling in delight as she put away her sword.
「Alright, it’s over! How are things over there? Hind.」(Yumir)
「Just a bit longer…ah, it’s over. Surprisingly, Lycoris-chan was the one to deal the killing blow this time.」(Hind)
「-Surprisingly you say, Hind-senpai you meanie! I can do it when it counts too!」(Lyco)
「Ah, my bad. You heard me? But, I really think it’s amazing how you were able to finish it off even though you are a defense type.」(Hind)
「Lyco, wasn’t that critical hit just a coincidence? It was a fluke.」(Siesta)
「What are you saying!? Si-chaaaan!!」(Lyco)
While we were having such a back and forth, suddenly, a change happened in our surroundings.
A large number of arrows and throwing knives suddenly flew towards us from the thicket.
Because Tobi, me and Selene-san, who was close by, were coincidentally looking in that direction were able to pull the members around us and we lay on the beach.
That was dangerous!
「Buheh!? What’s going on!?」(Yumir)
「Be careful! There’s something over there!」(Hind)
Staring at the place where the attacks came from, people started to appear one after another from within the trees…that’s right, not monsters but people.
On top of that, their names were the same, they were of orange color which indicated that they had a criminal record in-game.
The masked players were silent and they clearly released their evil intent towards us.
Then the PK army, made of ten people, took out their weapons at the same time and leaped towards us.
