Hero Union BBS Chapter 3

“You’re the Hero?!” They Yelled

  1. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Although this may come as a bore to you,
    if you don’t mind, I would like to share about my story.
    Incidentally, I haven’t begun my journey yet.
  2. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Hey there~
    Welcome~☆
  3. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    My, my, that sounds interesting.
    I would love to have a listen.
  4. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    I was baited by the title.
    You again, Student?
    You’re literally everywhere lol
  5. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    A hero who has yet to begin their journey?
    Please share the details with us.
  6. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    I’m free.
    Speak.
  7. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Ooh, thank you, everyone.
    I’m still inexperienced in many ways,
    so please treat me kindly.

    Aah, ahem! Well then,
    I should start by explaining about my world, Yggd Daebus.

    It was 300 years ago when the hero subjugated the demon lord.
    Peace came to this world, until the demon lord’s revival 100 years ago.
    The demon lord led his followers to invade human nations, and people live in fear of monsters.
  8. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    I have this urge to interrupt the story for some reason.
  9. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    I was born and raised in a village in the remote region of a small kingdom, this is not a figure of speech.
    It’s a very remote place, and very few people are living there.
    I would till the barren soil and step into the forest to hunt games.
    Sometimes, I would watch the invading monsters pass by.
    My small village wasn’t known even to the feudal lord.
    We had our hands full just to survive each day.
    Our lives continued without blessings from the churchtemple.
  10. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Churchtemple? Blessings?
    What are those?
  11. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    I suppose ‘churchtemple’ is a place akin to a shrine.
    As for blessings, would that refer to the baptism for newborn babies?
  12. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    I believe churchtemple is where people are bestowed with God’s graces.
    Depending on the world, some may receive special powers that way.
  13. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Just a few days ago, our family grew.
    Since my daughter-in-law is a townsfolk who married into the family,
    she said that it would be outrageous if her child did not receive a blessing.
    And so, we took the opportunity to go on a pleasure trip with the whole family and headed towards the nearest town with the baby.
  14. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    I can imagine what’s going to happen next lol
  15. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    I can see where this is going lol
  16. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    There, the baby safely received the blessing.
    Spurred by my daughter-in-law,
    it was decided that I would receive a blessing, too.
    Well, I didn’t see why not.

    Suddenly, the monk shouted,
    “Aren’t you the hero?!”

    My son, carrying his baby, was surprised. My daughter-in-law was surprised. My wife was surprised.
    And I, this 72-year-old geezer, was surprised.
  17. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    eh?
  18. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    eh?
  19. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    What?
  20. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    72 years old lol
  21. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Hero, 72 years old lol
  22. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    More monks emerged from the interior.
    They redid the blessings on me.
    But no matter how many times they tried, the result is that me = Hero.

    We were held in the churchtemple for 3 days until the head monk from the capital arrived.

    They yelled at me a bunch.
    Why didn’t I receive a blessing earlier, they said.
  23. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    lol
  24. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    lol
  25. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Hrm…
  26. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    I’m… at a loss for words.
  27. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    What can I say…
  28. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    After that, they separated me from the rest of my family,
    and I was sent to the capital.
    There, the 72 year-old me finally saw the castle for the first time in my life.
    I even got to come inside.
    What’s more, I had an audience with the king.

    Again, they yelled at me a bunch.
    Why didn’t I receive a blessing earlier, they said.
  29. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    roflol
  30. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    roflol
  31. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Hrm…
  32. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    Alas…
  33. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    My head hurts.
  34. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Then, they told me to try pulling out the legendary sword that was kept in the inner chambers.
    When I did, the sword easily slid off from the pedestal.
    It has the perfect height as a cane.

    The people standing there looked as though they had given up on everything.
  35. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    Well…
    Um…

    Did you never feel something?
    A sign, for example?
  36. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Hm…

    Since I was young, I’ve had better aptitudes than my peers.
  37. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Such as?
  38. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Just by reading grimoires a bit,
    I could learn all the spells.
    Just by observing someone swinging his sword,
    I could imitate what he was doing.
    Just by learning the bow a bit, I could hit all of my targets
    Just by training a bit, I got several times stronger than my peers.

    The reason why my village is safe from monsters is because I repelled all of them when they tried invading.
  39. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    If that’s the case! Then!
    Why didn’t you stop to think about it?!
  40. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    I
    I can’t
    I can’t stop
    laughi
  41. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    Shut it, Student!
    It is as Noble Priestess stated!
    Why did you not think of receiving a blessing before this?!
  42. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    eh?
  43. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    ‘eh?’ is not an answer!
  44. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Then let me ask you in return.

    Just by having a few talents that others don’t,
    would you shout “I must be the hero!” in your mind?
  45. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Nope.
    I know I didn’t.
    I was surprised when I was chosen as the hero.
  46. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    I’m a citizen from a peaceful country~
    My mind went blank when I got summoned~
    I don’t want to kill anyone~ I cried~
  47. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    I was not chosen as a hero.
    I trained and defeated them to be one.
  48. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    I… um,
    I would not be so conceited to…

    Without the oracle, I wouldn’t…
  49. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    …It is as you say.
    People who would claim that they’re heroes are dubious at best.

    But still,
    you know…
  50. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Well, if Hero had received a blessing earlier, or maybe if he’s at least 40 years younger, he could’ve fought the demon lord and brought peace to his world.

    So, how are things looking over there?
  51. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Hm, you might be right.

    But there’s nothing that can be done now that it’s in the past!
  52. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    Would you please not be so frank about it?!
  53. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    Please be more frustrated, even for a bit!
  54. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    So,
    the heroes in your world,
    how do they work?
  55. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Err…
    For example…

    If the current hero is still alive,
    the successor will never appear.

    That will put your life in danger~☆
  56. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    About that…
    Apparently, they never know when or where a hero would appear.

    Heroes aren’t born because there are demon lords.
    Demon lords aren’t born because there are heroes, either.

    An era with a hero.
    An era with a demon lord.
    An era where both exist.
    An era where neither exist.

    My death won’t guarantee the appearance of the next hero.
    That’s why they’ve given up on everything.
  57. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    How intriguing, that’s quite a rare pattern.
    It’s more common for demon lords and heroes to come as a set.

    Sometimes, with force.
  58. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Oh, with hero summoning? lol
  59. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    That’s the one.
  60. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    I see.
    I’m beginning to understand.
    In such a world, it would be normal for most people to be unaware of the characteristics of a hero when they appear.
  61. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    But still…
    Oh God, I’m getting dizzy.
    I will be back with restoratives.
  62. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    Noble Priestess…
  63. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Sake, again? lol
  64. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Whee~
    Noble Priestess the Drinker~
  65. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Hrm, sake…
    I’ll drink too.
  66. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Oh, sake?
    As much as I want to have a cup,
    I’m currently not in the best location.
    My wife has also been telling me to stop drinking.
    I’m sad.
  67. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Hero, you should listen to her words lol
  68. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Oh Hero, lol
  69. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    …Location?
  70. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    By the way,
    what’s your plan now, Hero?
  71. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Are you human race?
    How much lifespan?
  72. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Yeah, I’m a human.
    Although the average life expectancy in this kingdom is higher,
    in my village, it’s 70 years old.

    In other words,
    my ancestors may call me to the other side at any moment.
  73. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    I see now.
    That’s why everyone was giving you that look.
  74. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Speaking of which, how old is your wife?
  75. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    She should be past 50.
    I got myself a young wife.
    Hehe.
  76. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Don’t brag lol
  77. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    The guys always aim for younger girls.
    Seriously, this is the reason why…
    Men are all lechers.
  78. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Noble Priestess is already drunk.
  79. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Mhm.
  80. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    After all, Noble Priestess is you-know-what.
  81. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Mhm.
  82. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    Hic!
  83. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    eww
  84. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    So what if I’m immortal?!
    That means I’m forever a maiden!
  85. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    Noble Priestess… You’ve lost your composure.
  86. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    The weak should not drink.
  87. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    No matter what you say to Noble Priestess,
    it won’t get through her anymore.
  88. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    As fellow servants of God,
    I feel ashamed.
  89. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    Do you have any complaints about about restoratives?
    You have no reason to complain about drinking one or two restoratives!
  90. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Okay, okay, there, there, Noble Priestess~
    Calm down a bit~ Here’s another restorative for you~
  91. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    err…
    um,
    where were we?

    Okay, back to Hero.
    What’s your plan now?
  92. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    That’s right.
    You pulled the legendary sword from its pedestal, right?
    Which is being used as a cane lol
  93. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    It’s a cane alright lol

    Anyway, since I’m the hero…
    I feel the need to do something.
  94. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    No one would tell an elderly to set out on a journey and slay the demon lord, would they?
  95. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    They already gave up after all lol
  96. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Yeah.
    To be frank, it’s tough for me to swing a sword at my age.
    I already passed down my fields to my son and his wife.
    My body won’t move as good as it used to.
    Since my grandchild has been born, I had planned to help a bit with child rearing, spending the rest of my life flirting with my wife as a retired man.
  97. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Flirting lol
  98. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    I’m not jealous.
    I’m not jealous.
    I’m not jealous.
    I’m not jealous.
    I’m not jealous.
  99. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Why so angry?
  100. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    I’m not the least bit jealous.
    I’m not the least bit jealous.
    I’m not the least bit jealous.
    I’m not the least bit jealous.
    I’m not the least bit jealous.
  101. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    You too?
  102. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Err…
    As a priest and a priestess,
    these two are obligated to never marry.

    Immortal virg
  103. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Stop! Don’t kill them!

    …In any world, there are things that you must never say, Student.
  104. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    I know~☆
  105. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Hm, so you said it on purpose.
    That must feel refreshing.
  106. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    So,
    what will you do?
  107. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Well,
    for the time being

    I tried holing up in the castle’s library.
  108. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    eh?
  109. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    eh?
  110. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Why?
  111. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    As I mentioned earlier, it’s tough for me to use a sword.
  112. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Yup.
  113. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    At this age, it will be tough on my bones to go on a long journey to reach the demon lord who’s living in the demon realm.
  114. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    I suppose.
  115. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    The demon realm would mean a lair of monsters.
    You’ll have to keep fighting as you travel.
  116. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Yeah, I reached the conclusion that it would be impossible for me.

    And so…
  117. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    And so?
  118. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    And so?
  119. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    And so?
  120. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    I’ll teleport straight to the demon lord castle.
    Then, I’ll crush the castle along with the demon lord inside in one stroke.

    I’m currently looking for a magic spell with that description.
  121. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    Huh?!
  122. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    That’s wholly unexpected!
  123. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Oh, they’re back to life.
  124. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Wow!
    Just wow!

    Hero, that’s revolutionary!
  125. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Fufufu, I know.
  126. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Hrm
    But
    Hmm

    What about your pride as a warrior?
  127. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Well,
    I’m not a warrior.
    Just a villager from a remote place.
  128. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    But you’re still the hero!
  129. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Well,
    a newborn hero with 72-year experience as nobody.
  130. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    It’s not enough…
    I don’t have enough restoratives…
  131. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Teleporting to the enemy territory… A place you’ve never seen before… Out-of-sight, long-distance movement… Target setting… Phase tearing… Large-scale magic… Wide-range attack… The most destructive power…
  132. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Oh,
    Sage has entered the Sage of the Forest mode lol
  133. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    This is what all magicians in the world of Sky Garden are like…

    At any rate, would you be approved as the hero by using that method?
  134. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    You have it backwards.
    I’m a hero.
    The blessing has approved that I’m one.

    In other words, whatever method I choose is the way of a hero!
  135. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Yay! clapclapclap

    This is truly the wisdom of the old!
  136. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    Stop encouraging him!
    This matter is unprecedented… What does the Union say about this?!
  137. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    The Union only helps heroes~
    They don’t define what heroes are~
  138. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Hrm…
    This doesn’t feel right.
  139. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    But you know,
    no matter how many grimoires I’ve scoured, I couldn’t find any spells like that.
  140. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    Of course you wouldn’t!
    No one can stumble upon such a grand spell that easily!
  141. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    Naturally!
    Who would think of such a method to begin with?!
  142. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Wow!
    Hero is going to become a pioneer!
  143. Watches over heroes: Sage (Sky Garden)
    Spatial perception… Rather, pseudo-space construction… From books… Even a recount would work… Space reversal… Perhaps a disguise… Investigation… Thought tracing… Monsters… Shuffling positions
  144. Watches over heroes: Student (Terran State)
    Since he’s here anyway,
    Hero, why don’t you ask Sage for help?

    He’s a sage from Sky Garden, you know?
    He’s the expert in the most magic advanced world.
    Maybe you will find your solution that way.
  145. Active Hero: Hero (Yggd Daebus)
    Hm, I see!
    I’m in your debt, Sage!
  146. Watches over heroes: Claw Beast King (Kemonof)
    Hrm…
  147. Watches over heroes: Priest (Floy Regas)
    What is a hero?
  148. Watches over heroes: Noble Priestess (Salendaria)
    …I need restoratives.
