The Rise of the Shield Hero Chapter 103

I’m sorry for the late post. The reason is simple. I just got back from school. Anyways, this is the longest chapter I have translated by far. It’s mostly about game mechanics, so it’s not too interesting.

CHAPTER 103: HERO CONFERENCE (END)

I reject the sudden accusation in a loud voice.

Weapon Copy?

There was nothing written about this on the help screen. I’ve been in this world for four months. I have committed the contents of the help screen to heart.

From this person’s explanation, it seems he modified all of his weapons the second he got them.

“Naofumi… You don’t even know that? I’m surprised you’ve survived until now.” (Motoyasu)

Damn. It’s pissing me off. This person’s eyes are pissing me off.

No wonder I was getting nothing but strange shields.

I never got any normal shields like, ‘Iron Shield’ or ‘Round Shield’ or ‘Buckler’. I did think it was strange.

“Did you find that function on your own?” (Naofumi)

“More like, isn’t it common sense to use the weapons from the weapon store? The weapons were weak at first so I obviously visited the store.” (Motoyasu)

Now that I think about it, I had previously decided to leave my shield as it was and had tried to equip a sword.

At that time, ‘System Warning. To the holder of the Legendary Weapon. You have tried to equip a weapon besides your Legendary Weapon’ had popped up.

At that time I had realized that I couldn’t equip any weapons.

“I received a system warning, but Weapon Copy never came up.” (Naofumi)

“Ah” (Itsuki)

“Oh course.” (Ren)

My head was starting to hurt.

Of course, I am the shield, but the first thing any adventurer looks for should not be a shield.

I already had a basic shield so I looked for a one-handed sword or anything else I could use as a weapon.

Is that why I never notices.

“… To advance the conversation, Ren, why did you already know which monsters to hunt to advance your weapon.” (Naofumi)

“How?… Isn’t it common sense to check the identity of your drops?” (Ren)

Drop!?

Ah… In normal Net Games, monsters do drop items.

Items that had no relations to the actual parts of the monsters.

“The Store also sold some high quality items. They had plenty of ingredients. It really gave off the feeling that I was in another world.” (Ren)

“Yep” (Motoyasu)

“And there were a lot of useful items within the monster drops.” (Itsuki)

It seems that a lot of useful information is coming out one after the other.

And it seems that it applies to all the weapons.

It feels like the time I first came to this world. The feeling is unpleasant.

“Preparing equipment was basic and then comes” (Ren)

“Learning skills, correct?” (Itsuki)

“… for argument’s sake, please explain in greater detail.” (Naofumi)

It feels like these people are teaching it as if it is common sense. I’ll strengthen my heart, and inquire further.

“Once you acquire recipes and skills, if you feed them to your weapon, the system makes them for you. If you do it enough times, the weapon learns the skill by itself.” (Itsuki)

The system does it by itself! What the Hell!

It seems that it will still boost effects if you make it by hand, but as long as you have the recipe, the weapon makes it by itself?

So the reason Motoyasu had Holy Water was because he made it himself?

And it seems the materials come from monster drops.

“The drawback is that the weapon can only store items made from drops.” (Ren)

“It really lightens the load.” (Itsuki) (TL: there was a hammerspace system…)

It seems that the system has some shortcomings, but I lived without any of the benefits.

To think I would be getting so mush useful information. I motion for Shadow to take notes.

“Regarding hunting grounds, we’ll need to set some ground rules.” (Itsuki)

“Right… We could divide by level, but the monsters will probably be the same across the islands.” (Ren)

“We need to make sure our hunting grounds don’t overlap.” (Motoyasu)

“Correct.” (Itsuki)

“Well then is there anything else?” (Ren)

I pound this information into my head as I listen quietly.

“Then I’ll tell you my special method of becoming stronger.” (Itsuki)

Itsuki sticks his chest out and begins talking.

“In this world, the rarity of equipment is everything. After that is Money. If you don’t build these up from the beginning, there is no point.” (Itsuki)

“What a blatant lie.” (Ren)

“To mix in a lie after starting off with true statements, you really are the worst.” (Motoyasu)

And all of a sudden, Ren Itsuki and Motoyasu are in disagreement.

In one sentence, the atmosphere had deteriorated.

“W-What are you going on about! This is definitely the truth!” (Itsuki)

“No, It’s a lie.” (Ren)

“Yeah, you really are a liar.” (Motoyasu)

“N-no! I never lie.” (Itsuki)

? Itsuki’s behavior is clearly different from before.

It’s not the same behavior as when he was defending his lie. He currently seems to be genuinely angry.

Well, Itsuki has been being called a liar for the whole meeting. Getting mad is understandable.

I suddenly remember something.

“Now that I think about it, Itsuki, you seem to gather this gem quite often.” (Naofumi)

I take out the gem that Rishia handed meand place it on the table.

“Y-yes, this is useful in strengthening weapons.” (Itsuki)

Refining, huh. Well, it is a game-like system.

“It’s important to strengthen your weapons to their limits.” (Itsuki)

“I bet there are risks of failure. Please tell us all of the details truthfully.” (Motoyasu)

Motoyasu warns him.

“There is no failure!” (Itsuki)

No failure? What does that mean?

I don’t get it.

“What are you talking about, there can’t be such a convenient gem.” (Naofumi)

“For a while, you have been doing nothing but deny me. Ren, please explain it to him.” (Itsuki)

“Me? Fine, I’ll tell the truth to Naofumi.” (Ren)

Why am I being singled out… But it’s the truth that I want to know.

“In this world, level is everything. As long as you raise your skill level, things will work out.” (Ren)

“Lies are not good.” (Itsuki)

“Yes, please stop lying with a straight face.” (Motoyasu)

So which is it!?

“Naofumi, it seems like you’ll get nothing useful out of these people, so I’ll specially tell you. To strengthen your weapons, you must increase your proficiency in them” (Ren)

“Proficiency?”(Naofumi)

“Yes, if you use the same weapon for a long amount of time, it will get stronger. And when a weapon becomes obsolete, you can convert that proficiency into energy and transfer it. Storing energy unleashes extreme powers. This is most important” (Ren)

“Why are you lying in the heat of the moment?” (Motoyasu)

“Don’t be bothered by these people. All that’s important is rarity. In normal games, low level rare items would lose out in late game, but the Legendary weapons are different.” (Itsuki)

Just by listening to these people makes me want to try out different things.

However, everything they say is a mystery. I don’t know what to believe.

“What a guy. He can say such lies with a cool face.” (Motoyasu)

Motoyasu derides Ren.

“Yes, you shouldn’t listen to him. He’s lying.” (Itsuki)

“I really don’t know what’s going on. What should I do?” (Naofumi)

“First open your weapon tree and check your weapon proficiency.” (Ren)

As told, I open my weapon tree and look at the Chimera Viper Shield, a shield I use quite often.

I just see the normal status window.

What am I supposed to check?

… nothing is happening.

“There’s nothing, but…” (Naofumi)

So it was a lie. It’s not like I believed him, but this guy is also a liar…

Weapon Copy also seems dubious.

“That can’t be! I know what you are doing, you’re making me out as a liar!” (Ren)

“I also don’t have that function.” (Motoyasu)

“Me neither. It wasn’t written on the Help Screen.” (Itsuki)

“Wha… Never Mind! The me that tried to help you was an idiot.” (Ren)

Ren makes a dejected face and sits back in his chair.

The usually cool Ren has taken quite a bit of damage.

I have to assume that everything they told me is a lie.

It wasn’t written in the Help, so…

“I was still in the middle of my conversation. To strengthen equipment, you take energy from items and then you can add percentage points to the equipment through enchantment.” (Itsuki)

“Like +10% attack?” (Naofumi)

“Yes, this process takes up a lot of time, but there is a 0% chance of failure.” (Itsuki)

“That’s a lie. You’re giving Naofumi knowledge from a separate game.” (Ren)

“And I’m saying it’s not a lie! By absorbing items dropped from monsters into our weapons, we can increase our stats. This applies to all forms of the legendary weapons. Like increasing the level of another job.” (Itsuki) (TL: I don’t know if this is a specific reference, it applies to a couple of games)

Ah, so that’s why Itsuki was mentioning monsters and percents earlier.

To even lie to Firo, he is quite thorough.

“Yes, Yes, they keep saying bullcrap, so let’s leave Ren and Itsuki aside and move onto me.” (Motoyasu)

“I don’t really want to hear it…” (Naofumi)

It seems everything I have heard so far has been a lie.

“To be blunt, this world is all about strengthening weapons! Using your equipment to their utmost level is exponentially more important than level.  As long as you get status bonuses, you can overcome level gap. Even a terrible weapon can be strong if upgraded!” (Motoyasu)

“That’s a large lie!” (Naofumi)

“Let me continue Naofumi-san!” (Motoyasu)

Motoyasu starts talking to me out of nowhere.

“It changes based on the weapon, but you can then use a special gem to enchant weapons. In the original Emerald Online, there was a chance of losing the weapon, but for the legendary weapons, that chance is zero.” (Motoyasu)

“There is no such system!” (Itsuki)

“Yeah!” (Ren)

This has turned into nothing but a shouting match. Shadow also seems to be troubled.

I’m just as troubled as Shadow.

“It’s all about status enchantment. If you feed your weapon the souls of different monsters, the effect is different. If you fight the same enemy for a while, you get attack bonuses against that enemy.” (Motoyasu)

“Please stop it already.” (Itsuki)

“Yeah, you are speaking of a different game.” (Ren)

Ran and Itsuki shout at Motoyasu in loud voices

“For the love of… Why must all of you speak such lies?” (Motoyasu)

“That would be you!” (Itsuki)

“Hello Mr. Pot, can I introduce you to Mrs Kettle?” (Ren)

(TL: Personal touch, the dialogue is getting boring)

“Um… I’m sorry to intrude, but…” (Naofumi)

I’m beginning to see the connection.

It seems that Ren, Itsuki and Motoyasu have seen different things.

“Could it just be that each weapon works on a different system?” (Naofumi)

“… Yes, it seems that way. It’s the same for what happened with my skills.” (Itsuki)

“That makes sense. But Itsuki, we haven’t confirmed whether or not you are lying” (Ren)

“But that means that none of this information will help me…” (Naofumi)

And the conversation was back on track.

Well these people got genuinely angry, so I guess they weren’t lying

They had nothing to gain by lying here anyways. This meeting was organized by the queen to help combat the wave, anyways.

“Well, last is me.” (Naofumi)

“Yes, you haven’t said anything for a while, so now tell us everything.” (Itsuki)

“… I have take no responsibility in whether or not he lies or not.” (Motoyasu)

These people…

“First, what do you want to hear?” (Naofumi)

“Why are Rafatalia and Firo so strong?” (Ren)

Having these people understand my abilities may save my life one day.

So I just tell them the truth.

“Yes, that is the bonus from the Slave User and Monster User shield series. They speed up the growth of monsters and slaves. They pretty much increase stat gain, and the effects are quite potent. Firo also gets bonuses from the Filo Rial Shield series.” (Naofumi)

Should I also tell them about the Ahoge Class up item?

“There was no such skills in the shield users of my game.” (Ren)

“I agree. An ability that convenient comes close to Cheating. Where did you get such a shield.” (Itsuki)

Cheating, huh. Well, I can’t argue with that.

“I got the Slave User Shield when I absorbed the ink used for making the Slave Seal. I got the Monster User Shield by absorbing the Egg Firo was born from.” (Naofumi)

“Well if you can prove your absorption ability, we will believe you.” (Ren)

“He may be lying.” (Itsuki)

“Say what you will.” (Naofumi)

“Then next. When fighting the pope… Your battle abilities were surprisingly high. I’ve never seen such an ominous Shield in my games.” (Itsuki)

Itsuki is staring at me with doubting eyes.

How troublesome. (TL: He says Fuyukai Desu if you wanted to know)

“Where did you get that power? No, let me rephrase that. Where did you meet god?” (Itsuki)

“Wha?” (Naofumi)

“Where did you meet God, and get the power to cheat? In the forums for my game, I have read about a User who was able to meet God and gain that ability. Answer me.” (Itsuki) (TL: really? REALLY?)

You! Even if it’s a joke, you shouldn’t go that far.

… Since coming to this world, I have met much misfortune, but phrases that annoy me to this extent are rare to come across.

“I’m not cheating!” (Naofumi)

“For the Shield to have that much attack power, you must be cheating.” (Itsuki)

Ren and Motoyasu nod.

“Where did you get that power? If we were to obtain it, our powers would increase exponentially. Please tell us.” (Itsuki)

He has already assumed that he is correct. I’m getting a bit angry.

“You don’t think I could have gotten power through honest effort?” (Naofumi)

“Like hell.” (Itsuki)

He believes that the shield will always remain weak.

It’s a legendary weapon. There’s no way it can be as weak as he believes.

I just earnestly raised my stats by unlocking new shields and made use of the powerful Curse Series, that takes a toll on my body every time I use it.

Yet this person is asking where I obtained the ability to cheat.

“That shield originated from a shield called The Shield of Rage, and evolved into a series called the Curse Series. The conditions under which it appears are… uncertain, but it manifests whenever my rage crosses a certain boundary. I got it when I first fought Motoyasu.” (Naofumi)

At that time, I was swallowed by an uncontrollable rage.

I can’t imagine what would have happened if Rafatalia hadn’t been there to restrain me.

“Isn’t it written in the Help? That shield requires quite a high price. I wonder if you would be able to control it. By the way, all of my stats besides defense have been halved since I used that skill on the pope.” (Naofumi)

Ren’s eyes look like they are going through the Help.

And as expected, he says…

“… There’s no such item in here.” (Ren)

Nonono, It’s written in mine.

Well, only after I unlocked the Shield of Rage.

“Maybe it only appears after you have unlocked it.” (Naofumi)

“Did your net games contain such potent cursed items?” (Ren)

“Nope, it also did not shields that need compensation to work.” (Motoyasu)

“If you’re going to lie, you need to make it more believable, Like Motoyasu and Ren” (Itsuki)

Itsuki’s comment pushes Ren to the Limit. He stands up, points at Itsuki and says…

“You’re one to talk, you compulsive liar!” (Ren)

“What? Aren’t you the one constantly putting up a cool façade?” (Itsuki)

“Yeah, Yeah!” (Motoyasu)

“And you’re a Skirt-chasing Idiot! Do you plan to self destruct defending another woman?” (Both Ren and Itsuki)

“What you say?!” (Motoyasu)

“And Itsuki, his shield may absorb things, but you have your meat shield to do that for you.” (Ren)

“They are absolutely necessary!” (Itsuki)

“And you, Do you plan to act like this is a game, and play Hero? Death is the end! If death isn’t absolute, then why did you people pursue me when I had that death warrant?” (Naofumi)

“I don’t believe it’s a game to that extent! I thought that only heroes could kill other heroes! That I would be able to kill you since you became a Demon Lord.” (Itsuki)

“What a convenient brain you’ve got there. Are you sure you haven’t played too many games that your brain is rotten? You might have thought it was a game event, but what you were trying to do was simple Murder.” (Naofumi)

“The you that came under suspicion is at fault. And I didn’t believe it was an event!” (Itsuki)

“Right! It’s fine if you see this as an event, but you see us as nothing but villains.” (Ren)

“Ren! Do you plan on saying more!? Do you plan on having it out with this hypocrite Itsuki more? Who do you think you are? This world’s savior? If god has sent you to punish me, then I want to go and kill that god.” (Itsuki)

If this world had a god, I want to smack the hell out of hm. He dropped me into this living hell.

Don’t outsource for heroes!

“What are you saying to the god who made this wonderful world?” (Motoyasu)

“I won’t offer my thanks to someone with such a dubious existence.” (Itsuki)

From here to the end of the meeting, I don’t really remember.

What followed was a long stream of verbal abuse.

Shadow tried to get the meeting back under control, but it was already way past the point of no return.

The first one to get fed up and leave was Itsuki. Ren soon followed. Finally, Motoyasu drudged off.

    Thanks for the new chapter Yoraikun!

    And man, it is kinda hard to tell what is the truth in this but seeing as each weapon has a system based on the games they played in their world, maybe that’s a criteria for selecting the heroes? Or maybe the weapons adapted to the hero’s knowledge?

        Alex I think your on to something. The curse is probability the reason for the title “The Devil of the Shield.” I also think it is because a shield’s is to defend, not as a meat shield. If it is attack by the one it was protecting, then it will destroy the one who tried to attack it. I thick that is the reason behind the Curse series, to punish the false allies!

          Than if each weapon adapted themselves to the preferences of the user, does that mean that the weapons are sentient on some level? The shield possibly absorbed its wielder’s hatred as it was pretty intense. Hmm… It seems that Motoyasu thinks this is a harem RPG, I really hope he doesn’t unlock a dildo lance.

          It is way simple to explain each weapon being a legendary weapon would have different function none of them are actually lying if u think about efficiency (and common sense) and the fact that they are supposed to work as a group it would be easier if the weapons do not cross by that I mean if all of them gained stat the same way it could be a problem in the end since it would halved their leveling (each hero trying to gain for instance drop from the monsters) the basis of the system is the same in any RPG game u would understant it every weapon gives a hero a “class” or a “job” (since they cannot class up) thus every hero would be different. Well I think they should have been able to realise this but since they all are prideful it is useless quite frankly I think the meeting or whatever was just a waste of time for the heroes well Naofumi might be a lil different since he can actually reflect lol anyway the information on how each one level their skill is good to know imo.

          ******SPOILER ALERT******

          it turns out that all of the heroes are telling truth. each of their weapons, skill tree growth, help sections, ect…. are different. the theory is that each weapon system formed based on how each hero ‘believed” it should work. Naofumi winds up unlocking the other three heroes methods of growth by believing it should work that way, and the percentages, skill growths, and weapon masteries appear on his status screen right before his eyes. he then realizes why the popes fake legendary weapon were only 1/4 as powerful as the real thing, hence the title in the next chapter. i believe i have altered my brain wiring through reading the google translates of the raws. i became disturbingly fluent in reading those raws……….

        Actually, I think Itsuki is well on his way to unlocking it. I mean, he’s getting more and more defensive, taking every criticism as a personal attack and not recognizing the flaws in his logic. Naofumi unlocked his curse series when he believed the world was against him. Isn’t it looking as if Itsuki’s starting to feel that way? Regardless of the truth, it seems perception of the wielder is everything with these weapons.

      Also, are the other heroes from the world they are in now? Or are they like the other heroes from other worlds?

        The four heroes are the only ones from the other world besides the Fan Hero(Someone you know well). The other legendary weapons are awarded to the strongest fighters of this world. Some important characters now also take on the name of Hero from them.

      Has been thinking about gauntlets, not particularly fist but anything that wear on arms. In my idea, being the hero of gauntlet is like being a tool master, accel in using hand-made or guantlet-generated items such as bomb and hidden weapons, pretty balance stat but decent dex. Try thinking about ninja-like gauntlet that can shoot out kunai or shuriken indefinitely, wing gauntlet that increase speed and allow you to fly or glide, or tool master gauntlet that let you set traps in a blink of an eyes, pretty cool right?

      If not i still have my Glaive idea, a throwing chakram/boomerang type with multiplying abilities and so on from hero evolution.

      The Gamer sucks. Unlike this story, the MC of The Gamer got everything easy. He became overpowered with no justification to his becoming overpowered. I didn’t bother pointing it out to the die-hard fans because they wanted to imagine themselves as the MC with his OP-ness. This story, despite sounding like a game, is realistic, in that actions taken are the direct result of actions inflicted.

        Eh, The Gamer isn’t bad. It’s interesting in it’s own ways. You’re right that he got everything easily so far though. But there’s no telling where the story is going to go, so he might not be as all powerful as he seems. And there are quite a few titles out there that start out with an overpowered main character. I actually read a crappy one today where the main character get hurt and then recieves healing in the form of something that basically makes him arguably invincible. It actually had possibilities too, but in the end the story had no plot, and the main character had no real personality.

      well for how tha weapons work i will say what i got:

      Itsuki work with a system similar to refinament, normaly a wepon refined gain bonuses and there is the other that convert the drops into bonus too.

      Ren work with a mastery system, the more you use the more powerfull it become and he can transfer the masterie of low tier weapons to high tier weapons and the drops absorved he didn’t say(or i dont rebember) but i bet it help with mastery too.

      but for Motoyasu i didn’t get it, because the more i ready it just seen like a system that is hybrid betwen ren’s system and itsuki’s system, as if the refinement have level or something like that

      ShieldBro unlock shields by achieving requeriment since the majority of requeriments are itens that he absorve the main way of unlocking is absorving, but there are other tipes of requeriments like the one for the curse series, though that is just what i think

    If anything, the curse series to me almost sounds like those fury bars/ EX gauges that you get from those high-intensity RPG games (albeit with some minor tunings) so from that I’m assuming everyone can unlock the curse series, just that Shieldbro unlocked it earlier to compensate for his horrifically offensive power. From what they’re disclaiming it’s as such :
    Spear-skirt-chaser boy (Moto) : based off of a standard RPG game. Gain EXP from killing monsters, crystals and stuff used to enchant the weapons to higher grades (Common > Unc > Rare etc.) nothing new to explain here unless i’ve missed something along the way.
    Bow-false-hero boy (Itsuki) : his one seems heavily based off of items. Similar to Moto he can refine as well but it’s more of level additions (refine to +1, +2… +n amounts), similarly those items he has is similar to gem equipping that you see in those facebook/kongregate games, but instead of graded gems it’s quantitatively upgraded where graded gems just give a higher amount. ‘-‘
    Loner-wolf-sword guy (Ren) : his one is pretty much the exact same tree as Muramasa demon blade. All his EXP becomes a collective result reflecting how much he’s earned from killing monsters (I think his total equip EXP is his character EXP + additional proficiency). As such this pool of EXP can be used to boost equipment in respective to his proficiency where how good he is with the weapon becomes it’s available level cap, the EXP serves to give additional effects on the weapon. This is like those class points from FF12.
    Lastly our Shieldbro-sama : Actually kind of unique in his own sense. Similar to Itsuki’s item boosts, he gets stronger due to the latent benefits given to him from the items parallels with the discover concept where discovering things from like a picture album can give you additional benefits. Although his items can’t level up, he can progress his skill tree to almost insane rates. Compared to everyone else his skill tree is a colossal sphere grid more than anything else (how does he scroll through that I have no idea). His skill trees are all independent of each other so they can advance accordingly on there own but always retains the passive benefits. In terms of item boosting, his one prioritizes quality of items insanely, like with the Philo Queen, her item unlocked the whole system.
    So there you go, just a wacky idea from a crazed gamer o 3o

      I more or less agree with u the main point (I believe) they can unlock their curse series or other form of power but it doesn’t mean that they have to go through the same process so at the end of the day each one has to find its own path I guess something along those lines. One thing though I believe Naofumi also has some sort of “Requirement” to meet in some way.

      I see his level tree as being more a setup like ‘Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis’. He doesn’t have a ‘position’ on a sphere grid but rather multiple tech trees. Each tree needs the lower techs unlocked to advance further on. In ‘Mana Khemia’ all that mattered was that the previous ‘unlock item’ was built and that tech unlocked before you could reach the next tech or several techs. The tech tree for one charactor
