Guild Master – Chapter 16


The former owner and the saint's revival The wavy-haired girl looked at me with her heterochromatic eyes. I could see them clearly even in the dusk's light: one was golden, the other was blue. Only spirits were supposed to have golden eyes. “This mansion was once yours...? How many years ago are we talking about?” “About ten years ago. Have you ever heard of the Stollen family?” The Kingdom [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 15


Massages and the girl of the attic I was the fifth member of the expedition issued to exterminate the Demon Lord. As I watched over my comrades, I had to face quite the number of problems. One of them was that even though I was accompanying probably the most powerful people in the world, their young bodies couldn’t withstand the harsh journey, so we had to take some breaks [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 14


The three heroes' vacation and the masked butler After we closed the bar, I explained the plan to Mylarka and Aileen. Or rather, I asked them to find a way to make Yuma relax in our new mansion. “Is there something strange about that place? Bringing there Yuma is…” “Gotcha. A ghost or something, right?” “Nice guess, girls. Master hasn’t even mentioned that.” Verlaine was using her Demon Lord [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 13


The haunted mansion and the married couple After I left the temple, I headed north. My destination was a high ground where several mansions owned by nobles were built. That place offered a great view of the capital that spread further below. According to Leeza’s words, one of them was haunted. It was surrounded by high walls, but aside its old age, it wasn’t run-down. The first floor had [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 12


News and the young priestess Silver mug’s members specialized in gathering information. They listened carefully to every rumor in the city and then reported everything to me. Each of the twelve adventurer guilds had some sort of intelligence department, except for the top guild White Capricorn. They didn’t place much weight on information gathering. A guild could be manageable even by simply accepting requests, after all. Still, you have [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 11


TL note: the lap scene is changed in the light novel. The Demon Lord's lap and the royal sisters My head was lying on something soft. Someone was caressing me like they were combing my hair with a gentle touch. It was so pleasant that I wanted to fall asleep again, but I had to resist. “…I knew that you were going to lay your hands on me while [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 10


The dragon's fury and the light insect Duke Solver’s first book, ‘Dragon slaying for dummies.’ The assault’s plan was explained accurately in the second chapter. First, the dragon won’t pay much attention to its surroundings when it's drinking. Fire dragons have a sharp sight, but their field of vision isn’t wide, so they can’t see enemies approaching from their side or back. They won’t notice you until they are [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 9


Rune and the operation's start Three days passed since we accepted Timis’s request. Verlaine explained the plan in detail and brought a map and some chess pieces on the table to simulate it. “This looks like… a board game.” “It’s more like a reproduction of the battle. I carved in my mind how the fire dragon will move, but I don’t know if we will be able to…” McKinley [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 8


The fire dragon's ecology and the subjugation plan The relationship between Timis, Lia and McKinley wasn’t anything special. Lia was hired as Timis’s guard three years before, and McKinley was chosen for this expedition from Lia’s former mercenary guild. A mercenary guild was different from an adventurer guild, starting from their role in case war broke out. Although the country rarely requested cooperation from the adventurers, mercenaries would be [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 7


The young knight and her knights After the last round of drinks, I made the waitresses tell the customers that we were closing for today. Verlaine came back in the kitchen and gave me Cody’s mug… but behind her, the three girls were still sitting at the counter with their glasses. “Hey, Dick, don’tcha care about girls~? Do you see me only as a friend~?” “I’m seriously thinking about [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 6


Last order and happy birthday “I can make Timis succeed, just let me get in touch with her. If your subordinates don’t want to die, tell them that the guild on the 12th Street will lend them its power. The rest will be up to her.” “Thank you. Anyone would have refused my request, but you…” “I also would have turned it down if it was impossible. I don’t have [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 5


The hero with the Holy sword The Silver Aquarius’s bar was always packed with people at night. Or rather, since it didn’t have many seats, when the capacity was exceeded, we concealed the sign at the front door so that no one was interested in entering. A queue outside the door would draw too much attention. After all, our guild served as a gathering place for allied guilds and [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 4


Elucidation and the truth about the Princess “Mylarka, why are you so agitated?” The Princess showed a puzzled expression as she took off her hood, and Mylarka sighed deeply before answering. “I saw your battle with that prince. Normally, it would have been really hard for you to win… Or rather, it would have been impossible, given the gap between your scores. Still, your strength increased dramatically in a [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 3


The first Princess and Sweet disaster I told the Demon Lord to give the Royal Crest back to the Princess before she left, so that it could become our reward if our plan was to succeed. In exchange, the Princess had to pay us the insignificant fee of ten gold coins. I could pay three months of maintenance for my guild with them, but that’s fine. Money makes the [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 2


Cold milk and kumis blended with millennial peach juice1 I glanced at the sleeves of the girl’s overcoat, a garment only a high-class person could afford… Seeing that, it became clear what kind of blood flowed in her veins. She probably never wore cheap clothes. She must have caused quite the commotion just to come here. I gave the Demon Lord the order ticket. On it, I actually wrote [...]

Guild Master – Chapter 1


The beautiful girl and the drunkard The Kingdom of Albein is located in the north side of the continent of Exrea and it boasts two thousand years of history. Fifty thousands out of ten million inhabitants were citizens of Alvinas, the Kingdom’s capital. The nobles, who live under the King, were several hundred, even more if one counted their families. Cody, who became the army’s general, had the same [...]

Guild Master – Prologue 2


Their respective rewards After we defeated the Demon Lord and took the talisman with us, the King rewarded us. Cody asked for the title of general of the Albein’s army. Mylarka wanted one of the few phantom birds in the world. Yuma requested to be put in charge of the orphanage for the adoption of children without relatives. Aileen, instead, wanted a rare booze called Divine liquor… Some of [...]

Guild Master – Prologue 1


The forgotten fifth Everyone, at least once, dreamed of becoming the hero who would defeat the Demon Lord. But, in reality, it’s as hard as winning the lottery. I wanted to face them before anyone else and come back safe and sound. They were in a dangerous place, but even dying on the way back could make me a hero. When a hero returns from a similar feat, it [...]
