FFF-Class Trashero - Chapter 385
Chapter 385 – [28Th Round] What Are You Teaching?
“It’s become too easy.”
Kang Han Soo joined my party of his own free will.
He was certainly extremely useful, but the problem was that this was a live stream that all the other Heroes were watching.
To keep him from taking the initiative, I blinded him with the greatness of Master Mollan.
“To understand so much the greatness of Master Mollan… This is my first time meeting a junior like you. I’m impressed.”
Unfortunately for him, there was still no such junior.
The fact that my past self praised me was something special, though.
It was a nice feeling.
Saying something like that despite being stingy with compliments was proof he had changed for the better.
Moreover, I gained two more members…
“Alex, Alex, my legs hurt.”
“Let me carry you on my back.”
“No. Thank you for always being with me, Snow Woman.”
“Hehe! I can’t sleep, Alex~”
“Try to count the stars.”
“… Yes~ My eyes are closing by themselves now. Good night, Alex.”
The strongest swordsman in all of Fantasy, as always, took care of his wife.
Any monster that could prevent Snow Woman from sleeping couldn’t even get anywhere near before he cut it from a distance.
This made the adventure enjoyable.
Odin: He’s only been here for three months, but he already has the strongest party.
Zeus: Recruiting Sword God Alex is prohibited!
Luna: Just because you can’t do what the teacher can doesn’t mean it’s forbidden, Zeus.
Sieg: The Alex I knew wasn’t like that…
They shouldn’t misunderstand my situation.
Due to Kang Han Soo’s sudden intervention, I immediately changed plans and took the opportunity to bring Alex into the party. However, one shouldn’t expect too much from him.
Alex would never put his life on the line to avoid turning his armless wife into a widow. That was precisely why he would never attack Kang Han Soo on the 90th floor. He knew his strength all too well.
It didn’t matter, though.
“Let’s try to count all the fools who do not understand the greatness of Master Mollan one by one.”
My current goal was to improve my profession.
For this, in addition to having faith, it was also necessary to achieve outstanding achievements.
On that note, changes had already occurred in my stats.
Race: Great Human
Job: Cardinal (Sermon → Divinity ↑)
Skills: Faith ZZZ, Cooking Z, Incitement MAX, Fabrication MAX, Annihilation MAX…
However, I actually became a little weaker.
Unlike the Monk specialization, which made one’s Divinity proportional to their Faith, the Cardinal’s Divinity depended on sermons, which negatively affected me.
Cardinal was definitely better than Monk, but as absurd as it sounded, my Divinity dropped from ZZZ to ZZ.
I didn’t mind, though.
“I don’t need that kind of profession anyway.”
This was just a checkpoint.
The rank of my faith would automatically grow over time, but I still had no time to rest since my current occupation’s strength was closely related to my missionary work.
I was able to rise to Cardinal in such a short period due to the famous atheists I lured over to Mollan’s side.
But that was it.
No one on the Northern and Western Continents didn’t believe in Mollan’s Teachings, and the Great Child religion dominated the Southern Continent.
On the Central Continent, Alex was the last famous atheist.
It might seem like an expedition to the Eastern Continent was my optimal choice right now, but famous people, like the Pirate Queen and the Bandit King, had already come to believe in Mollan thanks to Green Cake.
“Will you finally go to the tower?”
I answered Disco’s question without much hesitation.
If I went there in my current state, I would lose on the 90th floor.
Starting today, I decided to deal with the troublemakers on every continent and build friendships with local rulers.
I began by apprehending those causing problems in the Central Continent.
“Stop them! They’re just— Huh?!”
“They’re too strong!”
“Agghhh! Who are you…”
“Why are you doing this, Hero?!”
The dummies and I went to the Elf Kingdom, whose inhabitants believed in the superiority of their race over all others.
Unlike the Elf Empire of the Southern Continent, ruled by the wretched Elf King, the elves of this land, hostile to humans, were a bunch of worthless traitors.
Nobody could stop us.
Kang Han Soo and Alex took the lead, clearing the way to the royal palace.
“Look, those are humans.”
On average, elves had higher skills and levels than humans, but they didn’t have infinite growth potential.
The Human Hero, equipped with limitless possibilities, easily broke through the elves’ defenses and grabbed their leader’s neck.
“It’s you again.”
According to genealogy, he was the son of Elfheim’s second wife.
It looked like Nasus and Sylvia’s biological father hadn’t changed at all. What differed was that his children followed their grandfather Elfheim.
Hmm? I couldn’t find his wife.
In the 4th curriculum, she was kidnapped by demons and had fun with my father-in-law.
Where was she now?
“Well, it doesn’t matter.”
I tightened my grip.
While helplessly resisting, the villain’s body sagged.
I would be a bastard if I left the country in this chaotic situation.
I looked back at Tomato, who was enjoying his honeymoon with Saintess A.
“Tomato, don’t be nervous. I just want to entrust you with the Elf Kingdom.”
“I know you’re not good in politics. That’s why you need to cooperate with the princess of the Holy Empire. Don’t do anything stupid, you hear me? If you don’t take this seriously, you’ll lose everything.”
“Mollan! Mollan! Mollan!”
“Yes. That’s the spirit.”
The G-Class Hero’s party left Tomato and Saintess A behind to head to the Western Continent!
Today marked the 81st day of my adventure.
I originally intended to do it all in one year, but with the addition of Kang Han Soo and Alex, my progress had accelerated.
Even so, I wasn’t wasting my time.
“As far as I know, the Western Continent’s Empire of Eternal Night already has Mollan’s Teachings as their state religion. So why are we going there?”
“Didn’t you hear me say I need to build friendly relations with the rulers of different continents, Disco?”
“Then why are you still asking me that?”
“I’m just making sure you don’t do anything suspicious that would break the rules we’ve set.”
“Do I need to violate anything with the current combat strength of my party?”
Disco displeasingly grimaced but remained silent.
She, too, was aware that Kang Han Soo and Alex were enough for me to easily climb to the 80th floor of the Demon Lord’s Tower.
The problem was the 90th floor.
To solve it, I set working on my reputation as my top priority.
“I welcome you and your colleagues into our territory, Hero. I am the Empire of Eternal Night’s Empress, and I am in charge of Connoisseur Shakespeare’s evenings…
“Oh! Please refrain from making comments that may mislead guests, Your Majesty.”
“Hmm? I’m just telling them the truth, Shakespeare. Tonight as well, your blood and flesh… Oops!”
“Welcome. I am Shakespeare, Grand Duke of the Empire of Eternal Night’s human race.”
The Connoisseur, married to the most beautiful woman and empress of the Western Continent, looked cheerful.
“Thank you for your hospitality. Seeing you get along so well warms my heart.”
The Western Continent developed technology so advanced they even surpassed Earth’s inventions.
To defeat Kang Han Soo on the 90th floor, I would need more than Master Mollan’s teachings.
The time had come to reap the seeds I sowed a long time ago, the rewards of my efforts.
“Haha! We advocate for Fantasy’s peace and will spare no effort to support you, Hero. Let’s begin by upgrading your mollanphone.”
“Don’t thank me.”
All Heroes received help from him.
Equipment rental, free accommodation, job offers, outdoor training grounds, issuance of passes, free public transport…
Shakespeare followed my order to “actively help the Heroes.”
I never thought the day would come when it would benefit me.
“I want to borrow a weapon.”
“Haha! Let me show you our arsenal. In addition to weapons, we have various advanced equipment available, ranging from F-rank to SSS-rank. Naturally, the higher the item’s rank, the higher its rental fee. If you lose or damage equipment without insurance, you will have to pay the full cost of the materials used to manufacture it, so be careful.”
I didn’t even have to take a look at what they had available in their armory.
We planned and created the SSS-grade weapons together, after all. Armed with any of them, one could easily break through the 40th floor of the Demon Lord’s Tower, even at level 1.
There was nothing I could do about it, though.
I wouldn’t be able to avoid suspicion if I picked a weapon without first inspecting their arms depot right in front of my juniors watching the live broadcast.
“This, this, this, and this.”
As soon as I entered their armory, I pretended to look around and quickly selected the armaments I needed.
Each of them, of course, was SSS rank.
Embarrassed, Shakespeare asked, “Have you seen their prices?”
“Yeah. But it says that I can rent the weapons by paying 2% of the original price as a deposit.”
But if even one of them were lost or damaged, I would be in big trouble.
Shakespeare shook his head.
“I’m sorry, but what’s there to talk about if you have no money?”
“I can mortgage valuable property, right?”
“… Yes, but you don’t seem to have anything valuable enough…”
“This level 2000 freshwater mermaid princess should be good enough as collateral, shouldn’t it? Even if she’s stupid and useless, please accept her for the sake of saving the world.”
“Thank you very much!”
I will never forget Aqua’s sacrifice! At least until tomorrow!
To ensure the Righteous Hero wouldn’t be considered an FFF-rank waste, I immediately noted that Aqua was happy with this decision.
“You sold your companion…”
“Can you stop doubting me, Disco? When did I do that?”
“Aqua’s never been my companion.”
Disco, unable to deny the G-Class Righteous Hero’s fair logic, fell silent.
Leaving Aqua behind as collateral, I gained 4 SSS-rank weapons.
1) Beta Version of the Android Hero
2) Rechargeable S4 Lightsaber
3) Heavy Duty Sticky Tape #3
4) Five-Senses-Influencing Drone Pro
I developed these advanced armaments with Shakespeare in hopes of somehow helping my juniors in their adventures.
They had never been used yet, though.
I didn’t think I would be the first.
Nevertheless, I immediately threw them all into Green Cake’s four-dimensional pocket, knowing full well how problematic it would be if they were damaged before our battle against Kang Han Soo on the 90th floor.
Afterward, I checked my updated mollanphone.
Luke: My Aqua…
Leon: Use a companion as collateral! That’s genius!
Ark: It seems Aqua isn’t only a versatile vanguard fighter but also a valuable initial deposit!
Piko: Maybe I should try that too.
Kevin: Don’t be fooled! I imitated that teacher’s tactics, but I immediately fell from the spear of an extremely angry Aqua… T-T
It seemed there would always be people who’d find something to complain about, no matter how illogical or little it was.
I activated the GPS navigator, a newly installed feature in my mollanphone.
Pip, pip, pip…
It kindly indicated the nearest location of amenities such as flush toilets and restaurants.
And if I dug a little deeper in its functions to apply a filter…
Pip, pip, pip…
I could also find the current whereabouts of wanted criminals tracked via satellites.
That wasn’t all.
[Do you want to start training?]
I could go through training to receive Mollanpis, the Holy Sword of Vampires, hidden in the Western Continent of Fantasy.
Shakespeare was the creator.
I served as the sponsor.
Trainee Teacher, beautiful both in body and soul, was our consultant.
“Ah, Trainee Teacher… I badly want to see your spine…”
Embarrassment: What are you talking about during your live broadcast?
Greetings: Disciple Kang Han Soo… Oops! Counselor! How are you… Oops! Please focus on the broadcast!
‘So nice to hear from you again, Trainee Teacher! Did my cowardly wife mock you? Are you suffering from a spinal injury?’
Displeasure: Please focus on the broadcast!
‘What’s wrong with the broadcast?’
‘So what subject are you teaching now? Biology? Anatomy?’
