Here’s a new chapter! Most likely, tomorrow I’ll Post the [Character Index] tomorrow! 🙂
Have a nice day!
Second Intermission: Montagne (Mountain) – The next stage
(This… Sure it’s problematic)
It’s been almost 4 months since we lost track of Engel, and two months left to have a year inside [The Tournament].
It is… In short… Hard. It’s not that I’m complaining. This is supposed to be what we wanted; the magic and all its nice too, but… The problem is… The companions.
We, after five or so tries, conquered the [Kerker] in 2 weeks. We were happy because it was really hard to do it. When we got inside, the difficulty increased every floor and almost in every one we died and appeared in the entrance.
We set a camp and I put a Barrier and a [Flag].
Then we rested, planned and challenged, until we made it. We were totally lucky that no one else found that [Kerker]
We were full of satisfaction. But then we had to wait for instructions. That… was the worst.
Finally we advanced to the next stage, but we did not know what to do. We then moved to the north and decided to pay a visit to [Kazu Islands] in the north of [Bereich]. The [Kazu Islands] are 9 in total and separated in groups of four and four, letting one alone.
The first group of five; [Futatsu], [Mittsu], [Yottsu] and [Itsutsu] are between [Téssera] and [Tría]. [Hitotsu] is between [Téssera] and [Pente].
Next the other group of [Muttsu], [Nanatsu], [Yattsu] and [Kokonotsu] are between [Dyo] and [Énas]. And where we are going is to [Muttsu].
We have spent three weeks in this trip and right now we are in a boar going straight to [Muttsu].
And here is where we come back for the trouble. Just some days ago, Daniel and Brunnhildr broke.
Not in a relationship obviously, but… As in that their minds broke.
It’s nice that they are now taking a nap… But when they wake up, this will be a bloody battle.
It started with Brunnhildr. Since the day Engel disappeared, she barely had any sleep and her leadership went down little by little. Also she would just stare at the sky while resting, thinking about him.
In resume… She was depressed. We had no news about him after all. Sometimes she would fake energy and cheerfulness, but we knew she was suffering. Such an obsessed older sister would not be quiet about such things, but she barely kept her reason for the team.
The trouble came with Daniel. He acted full mature as if the loss of his brother did not affect him. That he was okay, but one day he just snapped.
He got in a fight with Brunnhildr and then Karen and Marie took his side, Eita and Alan took Brunn’s Side… And I just stared at them fighting again and again and again….
Honestly, that was what tired me the most.
The performance of our party dropped and then, we have no instructions whatsoever about the [Second Stage].
This… Is just awful.
GOOD DAY, YOU CUTE [EGGS]. THIS IS [QUARTA] HERE! RIGHT NOW. 177 OF YOU HAVE QUIT, 23 HAVE BEEN DISQUALIFIED!
SO, 1,800 OF YOU ARE STILL IN THE GAME! CONGRATULATIONS!! WE HAD TO WAIT FOR EVERYONE TO CONQUER A DUNGEON OR TO QUIT, SO THAT’S WHY THE WAIT, BUT NOW HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE [SECOND STAGE]!!!
With a ringing tone like an old telephone, this notification came to us. To my bad luck, also those who were taking a nap woke up because the noise. When they thoroughly woke up and read the notification, a new one came.

(Wha…. The hell??)
While processing this information, we stayed silent for some minutes… Then-
“Guys… Did you all read what was here?” Asked suddenly Brunn.
“Yeah I did…”
We all answered.
“Well then… To begin with…. I’M SORRY ALL OF YOU!” She said.
“Especially to you Daniel. I know it has been hard for you, but I just wanted to release all this stress of not finding a clue of Engel anywhere. Really, Sorry.” She declared to Daniel while bowing.
“It’s okay… I… Understand it. Me too, I was stressed over the fact my brother I always appreciated, hated me and I retaliated to you….” Replied Daniel in a low voice.
“I hope we can join ourselves more as a team now. I hope we can grow, and that’s why no I ask for forgiveness and also, ask you to keep following me.” Said Brunnhildr.
We then kept silent some moments, and I decided to give the step.
“*Sigh* Honestly I was getting tired of all your fights… So now I’m really glad you two honestly said sorry. Right, guys?”
I said, and then everybody gave the contentment to my words.
“That’s why… We’ll keep going and see the end of this. Right?” I added.
Everybody let a smile out and we stated to chat and plan this race for the [Tickets].
There was a problem soon, when the nice atmosphere fades, we will have to touch.
Who’s going to left the party?
[End of Sandra’s POV]
“I did not want to say it…. but… HOW THE FUCK ARE WE GOING TO FIND A FUCKING SWAN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT????!!!!”
Exclaimed Abraham Kalfas inside a canopy, over a panther sphinx, early in the morning in the middle of the desert.
“Calm down Abraham. You need to relax… The 200 participants what quitted were the ones in this place. That means we have plenty of time until the participants that are left out, come here. Also do not make too much noise, the others in the tent will kill you if they wake up.” Replied Lene to Abraham’s complaints.
“Is just as Mistress Lene said. We have plenty of time and money to complete this [Stage].” Said a new member in the party.
He was a 1.80 nú guy with light brown hair, hazel eyes, transparent frame glasses and an elegant penguin suit.
With a stance straight as an arrow, a complete butler. But, the only thing that differenced him from a [Personen] was his horns pointing backwards. he was indeed a [Raubtier]… Or a former one.
“Shut up you sheep! You are just an aggregate in the party!” Said Abraham. Then out of nothing.
The butler kicked him in the butt, throwing him nús in the distance.
“I’m a [Ram], you dipshit.” He said with full hatred.
“Did you kick him again, Randolph?” Asked Lene, who was just coming back from walking when she listened to Abrahams complaints.
“Yes, Mistress.” Replied Randolph.
His name is Randolph Royce and is the [Topaz Pixie] and one of Lilya’s partners. A former [Raubtier].
Lene obtained him after conquering the [Kerker] they accidentally found in the desert. The party, after conquering it, they found a caravan and decided to check it out.
Then they found a tent there named [Stone Lottery Stand] and then, when they got near the clerk called to them and gave her the stone. Then she opened it and it ended like this,
“[The Tournament]…. It’s getting more and more interesting. We also almost died in the [Kerker] back there. Did I tell you what happened there, Randolph?” Said Lene.
“Not at all, Mistress.” He said.
“Well then, I’ll tell you-” She then took out a canteen of water.
“That day…. After we got inside the [Kerker], in the Third floor…. We got killed.
Then, we tried again and got to the 9th floor… But we got killed again.
The problem was not the try/error. We of course just entered twice, but…. Inside the [Kerker] there was a toxic gas named [Zetsu Desper Gas]. Corbin, as our healer, quickly casted [Detox] in us, but after a couple of hours the gas affected us again.
This gas… Created the sense of “Desperation” in us. Once, twice, thrice… No matter how much we used [Detox], the gas did not kill us, but it made us desperate.
It was horrible. The only place where we could feel alright was outside the [Kerker] after dying.
But even so, we continued. Miraculously, Corbin learned an advanced form of [Detox], named [Cure], and it suddenly gave us the boost to get to the 10th floor.
We were at the pinnacle of the world. We felt like that. But, there was something out of expectations.
The [Kerker Leiter] of the dungeon, Was this big skeleton with six arms and in two of them it had crimson-red shortswords and in the other four it had red crimson claws and black claws. That time we did not know, but the red ones were made of a metal known as [Red Meteorite]. That metal is known by its [Antimagic] properties.” Related Lene.
“Was it of a big deal for you the [Antimagic] weaponry, Mistress?” Asked Randolph.
“For you maybe is not so serious, but in this world, we are supposed to be [Avatar] and not flesh and blood people. That means we, basically, are constructed as a spell…” Said Lene.
“Then, if you were to be pierced by such swords, you’d really die.” Added Randolph.
“Yeah… Not instantly, but sooner or later, we’d be dead. At the end, after we were kind of even, we started to lost stamina and that big skeleton pierced all of us with his weapons. Fortunately, Abraham and I were pierced by the black claws. Corbin had so much luck that he did not got pierced.
They said that they felt the worst pain they had ever felt. When they started to drink potions to fully recover themselves, their bodies did not heal. They said that they got a notice saying that with time, it was going to heal, but in that moment…. The less we had was time.” She explained.
“What happened after that? You seem to have survived, but how, Mistress?” Asked Randolph.
“Well, there was a little problem there… When the skeleton attacked us, we lost stamina and resistance…. And over all, the effects of [Cure] disappeared completely. That took us to a river of desperation.
Abraham and I desperately avoided the red weapons and tried to win time for our companions to recover. I don’t know how much time it took us, but then Abraham got pierced too by one of those claws. Now it was only me and Corbin that started to prepare a big spell to kill in one hit the skeleton.
Then, I pushed all my being to win time for my companions. So they could recover and Corbin could, at least, try to destroy the skeleton.
I fought, fought. and fought… And….
When that took me to my utmost limit, I discovered something. While I was looking for something useful amidst the items in my [Item Box], I found something pretty useful. Something I did not noticed until then. It was the [Skyfall Tear].
I… Swallowed it and it gave me the strength to keep going.” Said Lene.
“[Skyfall]… It sounds like [Skyfall Sea Of Tears], a relic I know about. Is it related?” Asked Randolph.
“Probably. Probably not, but at the end, it gave what I most wanted. Time.” She said.
“It gave you…. Don’t you mean?!” Exclaimed Randolph.
“Yeah… It seems that after I ate the [Skyfall Tear] it automatically activated a magic of the so-called [Arcana Element]. It was [Time Magic]. Because I wished for it, the place around me stopped by 30 seconds at the cost of all my mana. In that moment I gave all the attacks I wanted and changed the trajectory of the incoming attacks. Then, when time started to flow again, it created an opening so Corbin attacked and killed the skeleton.” Replied Lene to Randolph’s expectations.
“… Just… Incredible, Mistress.” He said.
“I know. I know. Then that thing trapped me 6 or so months in a special dimension and I used that time to train my mind. I did not know if it would work, but at the end it did. I just had a hunch about it. The time in this world passed super slowly, so I just spent like two minutes here. Anyways… Now I can use that power at will. Not perfectly, but I can use it.” She added while drinking water.
Then, when Randolph was just to ask about a demonstration-
“Are you Ms. Nachahmung?” Asked a polite voice behind them.
“BLAdslñghafjdjsñl!!!!” She spitted out the water in the direction the voice came.
“Wha-Wha?! Who Are You?!! Moreover…. SORRY!!!” She shouted to the person who talked to her.
“Do not worry about it. It will dry in a moment.” Said the person. Ther guy who talked to her was clad in a black robe with green embroideries.
(??!! I did not notice at the beginning…. But this presence…. It feels similar to…) Thought Lene; Then-
“Okay, Okay… But even so.. I’m sorry. Can you tell me please who are you? Are you one of the people in the caravan that’s at the foot of the sphinx?” Asked Lene while calming herself.
“Well… Unfortunately I’m not a person of the caravan, but a wandered in the look of help.” Said the guy in the robe.
“Help? Do you want us to help in a [Quest] or the like?” Added Lene.
“[Quest]? Indeed… But it is something at a bigger scale…” He said and then he took out the hood in his robe.
“Again, Greetings, Ms. Nachahmung. My name Is [Loki Jotun] and I’m a [Divinity]. I’ve come in the search of help from you.”
Said Loki while giving a business smile.
(That… Sure was hard. It was as hard as with Engel Falsch. The other possessor of [Skyfall]. Lene Nachahmung. But with her, we finally have the five of them of our side.)
I was just returning from my “meeting” with Lene Nachahmung and decided to rest in my room in the [Residential Area] inside the [Kerker]. Then I felt a presence behind me. A strong presence. This, was the aura of a person who had consumed a [Skyfall Tear], and I know very well this person.
“Do you need something, Ms. Ähnlich?”
I said to her. She was the very first one I found that had consumed [Skyfall]. Isold Ähnlich. A tall girl with firm body, black hair in a tight ponytail with some white bangs in a blunt style . Her eyes are green and a pretty face that looks slightly bored and angry. I presume she always has that expression.
“My weapon broke again… I need another.” She said.
As always, she’s so blunt about everything.
“You broke another sledgehammer? Ms. Ähnlich. Did you not learn how to control your power when you ate the [Skyfall Tear]? This time, I wish you to be honest.” I told her.
I remember her telling me she had learned how to use it, but how things are going, I presume she did not learn how.
“Sorry. I’m slow in things like learning. School is not for me. And I could not learn well how to use my magic.” She replied.
Indeed. When I used [Appraisal] in her, her [Intelligence] was 15. Everything below 35 is pretty bad in that area.
The complete opposite of Engel Falsch and Lene Nachahmung. With [Intelligence] of 70 and 80. Truly magnificent.
“Alright. I’ll give you a [Ultimate] level weapon tomorrow. I really hope you do not break it this time, Ms. Ähnlich.” I said.
“Okay. I will try not to. Well…. I’ll see how are the girls…”
She said as she passed by me and went to one of the residences inside the [Kerker].
“Really… If [Mountain Destroyer] were not an only-girl party made of her childhood friends, I’d now know what could have been of her…” I muttered.
(Also, I hope the message had already arrived to Krestin and Izaak…)
As I said that to myself, I went to my room to rest a little.
[End of Loki’s POV]
Now, we move to the [Olympus Heavenly City]. Where the other two participants that consumed [Skyfall] are.
In this very moment… They are training.
The training grounds is a dome shaped stadium with nothing else that a flat and clean arena.
There’s anything besides the door. Also that place, has been constructed with hundreds of barriers and magic circles so no one will ever die in there.
A palace fitting for a one vs. one encounter.
But right now… There was an enormous crater that covered the immense stadium.
And in the middle of it, there were two people.
A guy fallen in the floor. He was looking to the ceiling and could not move because the tiredness.
He’s tall and muscled. He has short, black hair a handsome but manly face and had brown eyes. His name is Izaak Ausgewogen.
And just some steps near him, was Krestin Spiegel.
A tall, very, very well proportioned girl with inked light-blue, straight hair to shoulder length and very bright hazel eyes. Almost if they were golden. Her skin is white milk and her face is as beautiful as if she were a goddess. She does not lose to Lene in beauty.
“I told you right. You need to be more creative. Do not only rely in your talent or innate ability.” Said strong and bluntly Krestin to Izaak.
“Sorry… *Pant, Pant*… I’ll do better next time…” Said Izaak while panting.
“So…. What… Do you think of what [Loki] said?” He added.
“What he said… You mean the message?… Well… I asked earlier to [Hephaestus] and he said that the [Titans] were as powerful as a [Divinity]. And that means-”
“That means bad news, right?” Said Izaak to finish Krestin’s words.
“Yeah… Very bad ones. Still, killing a horde of brainwashed [Mad Titans] and destroying the whole [Thousands Underworld Army]. Aren’t we crazy accepting such petitions…. Also that other guy is very much crazy too.” Answered Krestin.
“That other… Oh! You mean the new addition… His name was… Engel something…” Added Izaak.
“Engel Falsch. That guy… Accepting something like that… Sure he is not in his right mind.” Said Krestin.
“What he was asked by [Loki]?” Asked Izaak.
“The extermination of thousands of [Evil Dragons].” Replied Krestin.
“And between those… The [7 Cursed Dragons] that no one has been able to kill for hundreds of years…” Added Krestin to her statement.
“Wha?!?! Are you sure?! You are not joking, right?!” Exclaimed Izaak.
“No, I’m not. That guy sure is crazy. I don’t know what ability was bestowed to him by [Skyfall], but to be confident to that level… *Sigh* Maybe I’m overthinking things.” Said Krestin.
“I don’t know about those [Evil Dragons]… But I still remember that time we erroneously entered where the [Twilight Heavenly Dragon] was lying dormant…. It still scares me that quantity of power….” Confesses Izaak.
“I know. Maybe the [Cursed Dragons] are just one or two levels behind the one we saw… But still, they seem to be freakishly strong.” Replied Krestin.
“Even so… You would still have accepted if he had asked, right?” Pointed Izaak.
“Because… It’s fun after all.” Said Krestin with a broad smile in her face.
I sighed. I was in a famous kind of stand named [Café] in [Nanatsu]. It was a place… or “shop” near the port of the island and it had tables inside and outside. There they sever an absolutely delicious coffee. I came every day here since I arrived.
“What’s going on?” Asked Cale, who was with me. We were seated in the outside area of the place.
“Nothing, it’s just that I’m thinking about everything…” I said.
It’s been a month since I last saw Engel. The day after the [Rune Sky Castle] exploded we maintained ourselves in silence. Then, Jess, Kess, Lyad and Cale decided to not to talk about it that much in consideration for the younger ones. We decided to not to look for him. Even if it was hard, even if he was our savior… We could do nothing.
We had no clues about what happened besides John’s testimony of someone taking him away. So, we had no choice to give up on him.
Even if it hurts so much that my heart is going to explode.
That day when we decide it and told the younger ones, they cried,,, I almost did, but I thought that I had to keep my reasoning.
After that, we traveled to the north, to [Nanatsu] so we could get a hold of some family from Jess and Kess. It took us 2 and a half weeks to get here. Luckily I had some money with me. The funds of the project of course.
We arrived to the island and there, miraculously found Jess and Kess parents where it was supposed to be their family’s house. Their names are Lauren and Karen Elain.
They looked fairly young to be a married couple, or even to have children but at the end, they are Elves, so their age was questionable.
It was a very heartwarming meeting.
Also, I forgot to mention, but I could not have those kids running there with rags, so in the very next town we found I bought them pretty clothes.
But going back to track, Mr. Lauren and Ms. Karen are [Adventurers], and they said they had just put a request after looking for their daughters themselves for some time.
They also said that they found about some [Quests] that mentioned looking for Beth and Seth. There was other for Brita, but there were none for Cale and Lyad.
It was somehow obvious, they both were orphans captured by some human dealers since they were little. They told me that in our way here.
So, at the end, Ms and Mr. Elain took those [Quests] and decided to escort the little girls to their hometowns. Also Lyad steeled his will and joined them so he’d become a rookie adventurer. He said he wanted to become as strong as Engel so he would be able to save people as he did.
That was some days ago. And now the only one accompanying me is Cale. I’m an orphan too due to being trained all my life in [Holy Eraser], but even so… I have no Idea of what will be of me and this girl from now on.
“Mmm… Say, is it bothersome to you my company?” Said Cale out of nowhere.
“What are you saying so suddenly? There’s no way that is the case. Anyways, I am the one who should be asking that based on what I did to you.” I replied.
“Well, thanks. Also, I do not hate you nor think you are a bad person. You helped Engel to save us after all and also… I thought that you were not a bad person… Remember, when Engel taught you to cook. Those were nice moments in the middle of that place… And I started to think since that moment… That… You were not a so bad and the like…” She said with a warm expression.
“Yeah… I remember those days too. They were nice for me too…” I said.
They are not too in the past, but they seem so far.
(I hope one day I get to see Engel again…)
Then, when I thought that-
“CRAP!! THIS IS BAD! THIS IS REALLY, REALLY BAAAAD!!!!!”
I swear I could listen a very familiar voice nearby. The voice seemed so similar to his that my heart started to race without control. I then notice that Cale hears it too and suddenly stood up of her seat. She then looked behind me and also started to smell the air around, as if to catch an aroma or the like.
I turned around and then-
I said unconsciously to the white-haired guy that was there in the other side of the street.
[End of Haven’s POV]
“Quarta, how was the transmission?” Asked Ms. Cole from her seat in the [Unreachable Room].
[The notice? It was a success. Not all of them checked it instantly because of their time zones, but at least, the 80% read it.] Replied [Quarta].
“That’s nice…. Also, did you get a gasp of what is happening with the [Divinities]? They are the ones I need to be in constant touch, because they and the [Bereich] governments allowed [The Tournament], but since the beginning of the game, they have not replied to any of my messages nor calls.” Said Ms. Cole.
[Their situation? I checked all the environment around every branch, and they seem to have some problems.] Said [Quarta].
“Problems? What kind of?” Asked the [Game Master]
[Well… They’re having a kind of [Civil War] between them. [Royal Branch], [Toori Branch], Half of [Valhalla Branch] and part of [Olympus Branch], with [Utgarda-Loki] as their leader. They seem to be under a strong kind of brainwashing. And the opposing side is the whole [Celestial Branch], half of the [Valhalla Branch] and most of the [Olympus Branch].] Explained the AI.
“What?! That serious is the situation?! This need to be treated urgently! Tell me more of the situation! Also I need to contact [Loki]. I need to know what he is planning. We’ll be supporting his faction. I don’t think that guy would reject the aid from the [Asteroid Magician]. Also contact [Schwan Enterprises], I’ll need to ask for permission from the president.”
Ordered Ms. Cole as she started to move the pieces in her mind.
“CRAP!! THIS IS BAD! THIS IS REALLY, REALLY BAAAAD!!!!!”
Shouted Engel in the middle of the street. He had just received the notification from the [Game Master].
“Is there a problem, Master Engel?”
“What happened Engel?”
“E-Engel… Did something happened?”
Lilya, Yozora and Röskva asked Engel why he had shouted like that.
“This… This is really… Crap.” He said.
“Say, what did you read?” Asked Yozora again.
“Well… Remember that, in the [First Stage] we participants needed to make a [Party], but it did not said anywhere that it was necessary for it to be made of [Egg], and that I could include you in it?” Said Engel.
“Yes. You explained that a week ago.”
“I remember it…”
Replied Yozora and Röskva.
“Well… It seems this time is a must for it to be entirely of [Participants].” He said in a dejected voice.
“Oh…. So, basically, this party does not work as it is, because the only one participant are you?” Said Yozora.
“Yeah…. *Sob, Sob*… I… Am lost.” Added Engel while falsely sobbing.
Then, he noticed that since a moment, Lilya was not paying attention.
“What’s going on, Lilya?” He asked with a change of attitude.
“Those Young Ladies…. They’ve been staring at us for a while.” She said as she looked over the other side of the street.
There were standing two girls. One was a short dog eared girl with average long black hair, shorts and a long sleeved shirt.
Next to her, there was a average height girl with short hazelnut hair and black eyes with a mole under the left one. A slim figure was partially hidden in a long sleeved shirt and long tight pants with heavy boots. She had some equipment over her and a shortsword in her lower back.
“Eh?…. Cale, Haven… Is that you?!” He shouted so they could hear him.
“E-Engel?! Are… you really Engel?!!” Exclaimed Haven and then she and Cale walked towards him.
“O-Of course it’s me! Well, I look different but that’s another story…” He said calmly with a warm half-smile.
“That smile… The voice… And the odor… The same…” Muttered Cole. Engel did not listened but Haven did. And with that, They completely confirmed the identity of the person in front of her.
And as tears started to fall in their cheeks, Haven and Cale out of nowhere embraced him while sobbing.
“Eh?… Eh?” He got surprised for a moment there, but he suddenly got what happened, and he just replied to their embrace.
