All three motivate me[ It really does]


The entrance of the Labyrinth was a large cave on the side of an unnatural looking mountain with guards keeping watch around the entrance to deal with any monsters that could wonder out. Ashley and I greeted the guards as we passed them on the way in. Inside the cave, we were greeted by the sight of many small bright white flowers that often grew in goblin dens. I kept note of it as we continued on through into a small room, inside there were stairs leading down to the lower levels.

“Down these stairs is the first level of the labyrinth, you ready?”

Ashley stopped for a moment to check with me. I held for a moment as there were signs of others on the map. Using the T.S.S, I unequipped and stored my long coat. Keeping that this was a D-Rank promotional exam, I swapped out my H&k-MP5[*1] for an FN-P90[*2] Submachinegun. The P90 is the Five-SeveN’s big brother, both made by FN Herstal company. Its ergonomics are fairly great which make it easy to handle while employing FN 5.7x 28mm caliber rounds[*4], boasting exceptionally flat trajectory and armor-piercing of level IIIA Kevlar vests that stop other small calibers. Even though it’s armor-piercing, it’s ability to pass through a body is limited by design and even if I were to miss, it was also designed to limit ricocheting. This with its bullpup design made it must use in the labyrinth’s narrow spaces since I want to avoid hitting other people as much as possible.

After setting up the P90, I test out the sights by peeping in and returning, so forth. The integrated reflex sights were removed and in its place was iron sights[*5]. After confirming that there wasn’t any discomfort in transitions, I took out a flashlight attachment and attached it to the P90. Then I took out two surpressors[*6] from my waist pouch, attaching them to the P90 and Five-SeveN.  I returned my pistol to its holster on my waist.

“Ready. Let’s go.”

I said to Ashley, who was smiling at how I was checking my equipment before we both headed down into the first level. Read this at Ashenfeather.wordpress.com

As the name suggests, Wolf’s Fang Labyrinth mainly had Grass Wolves and other monsters living in the forest to the east. The first-floor’s path was continually changing from 6 to 10 meters, so inside of walking side by side with Ashley, I decided to take point with Ashley watching the rear. While keeping an eye on the surroundings, I detected movement coming up from a bend in the path further up.

” Ashley, back up a little. There seems to be a bend coming up and about three things coming towards us”


“Ah, yes, please take care.”

From the sounds of the footsteps, it appeared to be a Grass Wolves. I switched the safety off, switching it to automatic, on the P90 with my finger while taking a knee and aimed it at the bend in the path that was about 20 meters ahead. After a few moments, the footsteps got louder and louder, then a wolf head popped into my sights. The moment my crosshairs aligned with its body, I pulled the trigger for a split moment, firing off around five shots. Then, a second and third one came around the bend, both quickly slid into my crosshairs and I pull the trigger again.

With the effect of the silencer, the concussive sound wasn’t so loud and with that, our first fight in the labyrinth was only a lasted a few seconds.

“Mr. Schwatz’s skill is amazing! Beginners normally struggle with the Grass Wolves since they have a hard type fighting as a group in these confined spaces. If you fight this way, you can take them out before they even have a chance to reach you!”

Despite what she said, I didn’t take my eyes off the wolves and still had my weapon aimed at their bodies that laid on the stone floor while I slowly approached them. As I approached them, their bodies began to be wrapped in a black fog and slowly faded only to leave behind three small mana stones where their bodies once were.

“Ah, those mana stones have wind attributes.”

“These sized stones are pretty great for me since I won’t need a bigger bag and since these paths are narrow, it makes it hard for them to avoid my attacks. I think this labyrinth pretty great.”

While saying that, I collected the mana stones and put them in the bag hanging off my belt.

“Certainly an adventurer can make an incredible amount of money, especially for someone as strong as you, but you have to be aware that it’s also extremely dangerous if you are by yourself. You could get injured with no one to help you and you’d never make it home…”

“Well, there isn’t anyone who’s willing to part up with me and considering my fighting style, having anyone who uses melee would only put themselves in danger. It’s fine so please don’t be anxious..”

I turned around to Ashley with a troubled smile. In the beginning, when I first arrived in this world, I didn’t know anything else. So I fought. I’m sure there are other ways of life in this world, but with my skills; this is the only thing I can do for now. In this world though, it’s not such a bad thing.

“Well… Let’s keep going. Since we still need to finish the exam.”

“Yes, that’s right. Lets go on.

We both wrapped up that awkward situation and continued on with the exam, keeping a lookout for more monsters and when we did. Each time we detected them, we waited for them to approach us before I would wipe them out the moment they came into range then collect the dropped stones. Then when we about reached the center, we found a large room.

“Mr. Shwartz, ahead in that large room, there should be around 10 demons. How do you plan to deal with them?”

“Ah, there are demon beasts in this room? is it true they won’t attack unless you enter?”

“Yeah, the monsters in there are resting rather than keeping guard of the pathways.”

Then that would mean there were high ranked monsters in there then. This level of the labyrinth, a passageway, and a large room. There didn’t seem to be a lot of monsters in the end, but the large room would probably be a little tricky. In this situation, the best course of action would figure out how to reduce the difference in numbers.

“I have a tool I want to use, but it’s loud so I ask that you cover your ears before I throw. When I throw it into the room, please don’t look at it either or you’ll go blind.”

“Sound? How does it make a loud sound? What do you use it for? ”

“Well.. to put it simply, it causes them to become disoriented and then we can swoop in and deal with them while they’re panicked.”



Whelp tried to make one whole chapter, I just got WAY to distracted so I’ll just split them into 2 chapters. Already way more than NF

    1. I’m considering redoing those, because I don’t either~! It’s a dilemma, I remember reading it, but I know I ended up just picking up the manga.


  1. Thanks for translating this, I came across this novel by chance when I saw in on NU, read all chapters up to this point and I’m glad that you’re doing this considering the last chapter was over 2 years ago, keep up the good work


  2. Thank you very much for picking this up! such a good story not sure why it isnt jumped on, its manga is just as slow lol Thank you again much appreciated

    They can stop calling him a manuke, since its derogatory so what if he cant use magic, his style or bloodline if they want to call it that is far superior… let them eat their words…


          1. Ashes sama… you will burn out too quickly… best to pace yourself… conserve your strength… be not overly eager to faceplant!



              It should be fine. The problem isnt the pace of the stories. It I had to take over time that cut into my story time :’o but I had them drop days so it should go back to peace this week
