Hero Union BBS Chapter 5

I Want to Talk About My Heartbreaking Adventure

  1. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Is it up?
  2. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Is it?
  3. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Oh?
  4. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Alright!

    Nice to meet you, everyone!

  5. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Hi there.

    Wait, is this your first time here?
    Now that’s rare.

  6. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    You didn’t create any threads in NOW?
    I’m not familiar with your world name.

    Either way, it’s nice to meet you, too.

  7. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    since you’re in the folly’s meow
    you must have finished your trial as a hero meow
    i want to hear it meow
  8. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    That’s an intriguing thread title.
    Not a heart-pounding adventure, but a heartbreaking one?
    This will be worth listening to.
  9. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Here comes☆Student!
    Hello hello, nice to meet you~
  10. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Well, I would’ve created a thread during my journey if only I could.
    But there was this… space-time shift? in the world where I got summoned to.
    I could view the threads in the BBS, but I couldn’t post anything at all.
    They said I was a special case, though.

    When I first contacted the Union,
    they were quite confused… about a whole lot of things.
    Anyway, it got cleared up that I was a hero, so all is well.

  11. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    On.the.other.hand.

    Wow, Empress is here!
    The empress of Lotus Origin herself!

    Wow, welcome!
    Wow, I feel moved!
    Nice to meet you!

  12. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Hm?

    Where’s the love for everyone’s idol☆The Student?

  13. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    Are you speaking about me?
    You have quite the discerning eye.
    Pleasure to make your acquaintance.
  14. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    you couldn’t post meow?
    is that possible meow?
  15. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    I’ve never heard of that happening.
    By the way, was this your first time being a hero?
  16. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    Well, I know precedents who became heroes twice… or thrice.
  17. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    It was my first time!
    It was tough!
  18. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Huh?
    Am I getting ignored here?

    Boo boo~

  19. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    You did mention about going through a heartbreaking adventure.
    It must have been terribly difficult.
  20. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    This BBS was the only solace for my heart!

    Hunter lol
  30. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    Hmm!
    You’re an honest one.
    Every man should strive to be like you.
  31. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Thank you very much!
    I mean, it was really tough!

    Who can blame me for seeking some healing!
    Who can blame me for wanting to vent about something!

  32. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    There, there lol

    I know how it feels lol

  33. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    It shows how heartbreaking your adventure was.

    So, how did your heart break?
    What painful experiences did you face?

  34. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    yes meow
    the main question meow
  35. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Please tmm about your heartbreaking adventure!

    In 3, 2, 1…

  36. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    What does tmm mean?
  37. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    It’s a term often used by those from Terran worlds.
    Apparently, it means please elaborate, or something along that line.
  38. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    From all the times I’ve encountered that term,
    it also seems to imply, “Hurry up and proceed with the story.”
  39. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    I can’t feel bothered to explain it, you know?
    I mean, it’s just an internet slang~

    Besides, it’s interesting to see how you guys would react every time.

  40. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Student…
  41. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    student…
  42. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    Student…
  43. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    Student…

    In any case, back to Hunter.
    Do let us know what had transpired in your journey.

  44. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!
    Thank you very much!

    I’m… well, as you may know already, I’m a hunter.
    I woke up in the morning as usual, and went out with a bow and traps in hand for my daily hunt in the forest.

    But suddenly, I fell into a pitfall.

  45. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    a pitfall meow?
  46. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Ah, you mean…
  47. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Yes.
    Now that I think back to it,
    that was the moment I was summoned to that world.

    So by the time I realized it,
    I was already standing in a fine…
    Um, how do I describe it… a fine…
    a very fine…

  48. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Well,
    at least you managed to convey that you have a limited vocabulary lol
  49. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    We get it already.
    Please continue with the story lol
  50. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    Picturesque, imposing, luxurious, extravagant, magnificent…
    There are plenty of words to be used, but pay it no mind.
  51. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!
    Sorry for the trouble, Empress!

    So,
    I found myself in the middle of the audience chamber of a
    picturesque-imposing-luxurious-extravagant-magnificent-looking castle!

    There, I saw a
    picturesque-imposing-luxurious-extravagant-magnificent-looking King
    sitting in his throne!

  52. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    meow…
  53. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    err…
  54. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    …I’ll refrain from commenting for now.
  55. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Stupid~☆
  56. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Student!
    As if you’re one to talk!
  57. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    You’re such a noisy bunch.
    How can we listen to Hunter’s story like this?
    Be quiet and don’t point out the trivial things.
  58. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Sorry~
  59. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Sorry!
  60. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    my bad meow
  61. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    My apologies.
    Hunter, please continue.
  62. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!
    Um, where was I?
  63. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    *thud*
  64. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    You were summoned to another world,
    and found yourself in the audience of the king.
  65. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!

    You’re right.
    And, well… I guess it’s the same template everywhere.

    “You’ve done well to heed our summon, Hero!
    Please save this world from the Demon Lord’s vice!”

    Is what he said.

  66. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    err…
  67. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    meow
  68. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    Well…
  69. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    The usual.
  70. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    Good grief.

    A perfect example of an otherworldly summoning if nothing else.

  71. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    So it seems.
    I first learned about it when I read through the BBS.
    But at that time, I was utterly confused.

    So I asked the King,
    “What? What’s going on here?”

    And he answered,
    “This holy sword has the power to defeat the Demon Lord. Take it.”
    He completely ignored my question.

    But, I’m a hunter.
    My weapon is the bow.
    I was even carrying it at that time.

  72. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    You may have been panicking at that time, but you were too disrespectful towards the king. Sorry, but that made me laugh a little.
  73. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    I can never understand the reasoning behind an otherwordly summoning.
  74. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    But still,
    why is it a sword?
    I mean, it’s always a sword.
  75. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Well, you know…
    It’s stylish?
  76. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    claws are the best meow
  77. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    With the rate this story is going,
    how long will it take until we get to the part where your heart breaks?
  78. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!

    Don’t worry!
    It won’t be long now!

  79. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    What? lol

    Bombshell lol

  80. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    After that, with me still confused…
    I asked once again,
    “What? What’s going on here?”

    Then the King answered with,
    “This holy sword has the power to defeat the Demon Lord. Take it.”

  81. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    eh?
  82. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    eh?
  83. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    eh?
  84. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    Hm?
  85. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    meow?
  86. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Me: “Again, what’s all this about?”
    King: “This holy sword has the power to defeat the Demon Lord. Take it.”
    Me: “Hey, I really don’t get what you’re on about.”
    King: “This holy sword has the power to defeat the Demon Lord. Take it.”
    Me: “Where is this place anyway?”
    King: “This holy sword has the power to defeat the Demon Lord. Take it.”
    Me: “Who are you? Are you the king or something?”
    King: “This holy sword has the power to defeat the Demon Lord. Take it.”
    Me: “…Repeat after me?”
    King: “This holy sword has the power to defeat the Demon Lord. Take it.”

    After we repeated that exchange for around 35 times,
    I decided to take the sword as he told me.

    That was when the King said,
    “Hero, it’s in your hands!”

    Then he left the place.

    Meanwhile, I was left there
    along with my broken heart.

  87. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Well…
  88. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    meow goodness…
  89. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    Um, err…
  90. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    What happened there?
  91. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    There were soldiers guarding the entrance of the audience chamber.
    So I decided to talk to one of them instead.

    Me: “Excuse me.”
    Soldier 1: “We’re counting on you, Hero!”
    Me: “In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a hunter.”
    Soldier 1: “We’re counting on you, Hero!”
    Me: “Is your king alright in the head?”
    Soldier 1: “We’re counting on you, Hero!”

  92. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Then I tried talking to the guard on the other side.

    Me: “Can I have a moment?”
    Soldier 2: “I pray for your safety, Hero!”
    Me: “Hello?”
    Soldier 2: “I pray for your safety, Hero!”
    Me: “Excuse me!”
    Soldier 2: “I pray for your safety, Hero!”

    I felt like crying.

  93. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    Men shouldn’t show their tears so easily!
    Although that’s what I would say in a normal case…

    If I were in your position, I would cry too.

  94. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    what was that meow
    scary meow
    it’s a horror meow
  95. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    What happened?
    What’s wrong with that world?
    Could it be that it’s the same way even outside the castle?
  96. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    I got it~
    I got it, guys~

    Hehe~☆

  97. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    Student, what’s going on?
    Is it a trait peculiar to that world?
  98. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    All of you were bullying me, so I’m not telling~☆
  99. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, the Union mentioned something about it.

    In the Terran worlds, there was a really old video game(?) called
    “Darknest Quest”
    which had a bug that ended up summoning me.

    That’s how I learned what had happened to me.

  100. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Ah.

    You told them!
    Why did you tell them?!

  101. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    A video game… Now where have I heard it before…
  102. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    A video game…
    I remember Student bringing in something during the last social gathering…
    Is that it?
  103. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    a video game meow… some kind of gadget meow
  104. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    A video game… A tool for entertainment created with science and technology.
  105. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Nowadays, the NPCs in video games have quite the advanced AI, so they can hold a conversation with you at least~
    You must have been summoned to quite an old video game there~

    My condolences~☆

  106. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    So… what does it mean?
    Does everyone give you those half-baked responses all the time?
  107. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, that’s right, Empress!

    I went to the castle town and the first old man that I met said,
    “This is the castle town, Horus.”
    I realized it’s the only thing he could say after making him repeat it 30 times!

    As for the uncle who owned the inn,
    “You staying? It’s 100 eso.”
    I realized it’s the only thing he could say after making him repeat it 50 times!

    I almost went insane!

  108. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    meoow
    i tried imagining it meow…

    …scary meow
    scary meow

  109. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    That situation would drive me insane as well…
  110. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    After staying at the castle town for one whole week,
    I found out that everyone’s always in the exact same position.
    And they’re always saying the exact same lines.

    I almost went insane!

  111. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    How dreadful…
    it must have been…
  112. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Whoa…
    That’s really tough.

    Was there no one at all who could hold a conversation with you?

  113. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    I second that.
    What about your party members?
    Couldn’t you talk with them?
  114. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!

    During my journey, I gained 3 party members.
    Swordsman, Magician, and Priest… So, um… whenever an event(?) occurred,
    that would be my chance to talk with them.

    But only when we were traveling through the map(?),
    they would keep saying the exact same lines!

  115. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Me: “Hey, guys.”
    Swordsman: “Our next destination is… Nora Village, eh.”
    Priest: “It’s rumored to have a dragon’s secret stash hidden somewhere.”
    Magician: “Wow, I can’t wait! Let’s go, let’s go!”

    Me: “Yeah, but what I want to say is…”
    Swordsman: “Our next destination is… Nora Village, eh.”
    Priest: “It’s rumored to have a dragon’s secret stash hidden somewhere.”
    Magician: “Wow, I can’t wait! Let’s go, let’s go!”

  116. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Are those even what you call party members?

    I almost went insane!

  117. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    meoooow…
  118. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    Party members… I wonder about that.
    They should be more… you know.
  119. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    That’s a terribly… terribly arduous journey that you went through.
    I praise you for returning safely.
    You’ve really done well to overcome it all.
  120. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    Well,
    that explains why the BBS became your only solace~

    GJ~☆

  121. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Student, why do you always sound so inconsiderate!
    Hunter, it’s alright to cry. I permit you to.
  122. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Thank you very much!
    That said, I’m already getting to the final stage!

    Demon Lord: “Khukhukhu! Hero, you’ve done well to come this far!”

    I let him repeat it 100 times before beating him up!

    By the way, I slew all the monsters that I ran into during the journey, and my level went up a whole lot!

  123. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    That’s right.
    Since it’s a video game, were you able to see your status?
  124. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!
    I could see it!
    I got to level 99 before I reached Demon Lord’s castle!
  125. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    What? lol

    Max level lol

  126. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    At any rate,

    I applaud you for returning safely.

  127. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    True that.
    If I were trapped inside that world…

    I don’t even want to imagine it.

  128. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    welcome back meow!
    good for you meow!
  129. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    Truly… I’m glad it went alright.

    The summoning itself was due to a bug, wasn’t it?

  130. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!
    The Union did something about that!
    I completed my duty by slaying the Demon Lord, so I was told that I could return!
  131. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    By using Secret Move: Forced Return~☆

    They could’ve done that earlier, though.

  132. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    I agree.
    If the summoning itself was a bug, then why not?
  133. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    It seems that the Union also had a split opinion on it.

    I don’t really get the details, though.

  134. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    why meow?
  135. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    He had been given the duty and responsibility of a hero.
    If he was returned, it means that the demon lord would stay.
    It’s possible that the video game world would crumble as a result.
  136. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!
    I think that’s what they were talking about!
  137. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Uh… oh well.

    Good job getting back home safely!

  138. Retired Hero: Whitecatkin (Colorful Beast Kingdom)
    i will keep my thoughts to myself meow

    there’s no helping it meow

  139. Retired Hero: Knight Commander (Leviland)
    Yes, I agree.

    What matters is that everything was safely resolved.

  140. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    You’re really
    an idiot~☆

    GJ GJ

  141. Retired Hero: Village Chief (Ta Batha)
    Student!
    As if you’re one to talk!
    Can’t you see that we’re trying to be considerate here?!
  142. Retired Hero: Empress (Lotus Origin)
    In any case,
    Hunter, you’ve overcome that arduous journey.
    You should take this moment to recuperate.
  143. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!
    Thank you very much, everyone!
  144. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    By the way, Mr. Hunter the bow user…

    How much was your skill level with the sword?

  145. Retired Hero: Hunter (Ophthal)
    Ah, yes!

    I got to rank SS!

  146. Retired Hero: Student (Terran State)
    It’s maxed, too? lol
