>“Alright, I guess we better go.
Our disadvantage will only increase the longer we wait.
We should get points as soon as possible.”

The others agreed with me, and so those who were quickest on their feet began to leave the fortress.
And while they had been divided into a group under me, they didn’t actually have to follow my orders.
This wasn’t a real war.
It was a game.
Everyone was just here to have a good time.

Besides, I wasn’t the type to give out orders left and right.
I didn’t want to be a leader.
However, if I cared about our side winning, then I would have to do my best in this role.
I especially wanted to help 1sts who were participating in an event for the first time.

As for combat, my record was quite good.
And so there was no point in being self-deprecating.
I had to be confident.
During this event, at least, I would be that reliable older guy.
Though…I didn’t know how long it would last.

Kiririririri…shu! Zhunk!

The wild rabbits with their vicious front teeth used to make me suffer so much, but they were nothing to fear now.
My neck was protected by a scarf, and so it wouldn’t even hurt if I was bitten.

Also, I was a little surprised to see these normal monsters in the event map.
I would have expected to see event exclusive monsters alone.

Well, I suppose making new 3D models was hard.
Especially since these creatures were all animated so realistically.
I didn’t want to know how much effort that took.

“Tha-thank you! You saved me…”

Said a young 1st with a bow of his head.

“There’s no need to thank me.
But these rabbits are quite vicious, so be careful.
I’ll be able to protect you if you’re within range of my arrows, but not when you’re alone.”

“I’ll be careful!”

Good answer.
It felt great to help other people.
And so I continued to help players like him while hunting down monsters.

One thing that I realized after coming out of the forest, was that it was located in the center of a prairie.
But the grass was short, which made it easy to walk in, and the enemies could not hide.
Besides, there were watchtowers, so unless people were really letting their guard down, we should be able to see any approaching enemies quickly.

This ‘west forest’ we were in had relatively weak monsters.
And while that meant we didn’t get that many points, the 1sts were able to have their own roles.
It took some time, but since everyone was working, we eventually hunted down all of the monsters in the area.
Surely that was enough?
Well, this was the first event of its kind, and so no one really knew how much was required.

“Alright, I see that everyone is still alive.
Let’s return to the fortress.”

Some answered, some nodded, while others showed no reaction but obeyed.
Others ignored me and went off…
There were many different reactions.
However, that was fine.
This loose connection meant I didn’t feel too much pressure as a leader.
Some came to thank me again for saving them.
And it made me genuinely happy.
And I accepted their gratitude willingly.

“Hopefully, things will continue like this to victory…without any trouble.”

However, that wish was quickly crushed.
The news came after we had all returned to the fortress and were discussing how to use the points.

“Mister Hatake!”


“Enemies have been spotted near the horizon! As for their number…there are too many to count!”

“Oh, dear.
They are really charging at us in full force as soon as the game begins? How crude of them.”

“According to the report of our fastest scouts, the enemy is Blue Deer!”

“Of course, it is.
Their fortress is the closest.”

“And the enemy is being led by a 3rd… We think that it’s Buckler from the Straight Knights…!”


The air in the room changed as soon as the name ‘Buckler’ was mentioned.
I guess I was the only one…who had no idea?
What kind of player was this…

“Buckler…huh? Alright, I, Hatake, command you all! We are abandoning this fortress and running away!”
