ward is a SECRET-nyon! Well, I think you’ll figure it out when the time comes-nyon!’

Charin finished her explanation and the players started to enter the dungeon.
Apparently, you would meet your white goat once inside.
I had a bad feeling about this…


I met it as soon as I entered the dungeon.
In the first great hall where there were still no monsters.
The white goat was waiting there.


It really was just an ordinary white goat…!
The kind that immediately came to mind when you thought of goats.
It wasn’t an unusual foreign breed or a monster.
And now I had to protect it while making my way through the dungeon.


“…I guess I have no choice.”

I couldn’t even check the white goat’s status.
However, there was an HP gauge right above its name, which was ‘Mister White Goat.’
If that gauge went to 0, then I would fail.
And I would have to start again.

There was no point in standing around, so I started walking.

Mister White Goat had a collar with a bell that rang as it followed me.
It was pretty fast on its feet.
Like it would have no trouble keeping up even if I ran at my fastest.
It was probably faster than Garbow was on land.
Well, it was a goat, after all.

“Oh, enemies…”

I couldn’t keep my eyes on the white goat the whole time.
As this was an ancient ruin made of stone, the enemies seemed to be mostly Golems and other stone related creatures.
I knew a lot about Golems.
They were slow but incredibly durable and powerful.
No good for close quarters combat.
And so I had Garbow focus on shooting while I used Burning Arrow to cause explosions…


It was the sound of a bell.
Speaking of bells…

“M-mister White Goat…!?”

The goat was charging into the Golem!?
Ma-maybe…it had just enough attack skills that made it react to the enemy…?

My guess was right.
In spite of looking very weak, the white goat rammed its body into the Golem.
Of course, it did no damage at all.
And then the thick, stony arm came swinging down over my white goat.

“Garbow! Red Flash! And I’ll do… Sky Tear!”

A red beam that had high piercing ability shot out from Garbow’s mouth.
I also used something with good piercing ability, Sky Tear, and shot through the Golem’s core.
It stopped moving after that.
Then it turned into light and disappeared.

The white goat was fine.
No, it had lost some of its HP.
Was it a repercussion from the charge…?

These were one of the most annoying types of missions in games.
‘Protect an NPC character that you have no control over.’
They were especially common in simulation RPGs.
The NPCs were always so weak and died easily.
And if not, they were so strong that they killed all the enemies, robbing you of experience and items.
On top of that, your rating would change depending on whether they survived or not.
It could be really difficult.

Thankfully, this was a VRMMO RPG, and wasn’t too bad.
I had good range.
And so I could usually kill enemies before the goat could even start to ram into them.
Also, I could order Garbow to stick close to the white goat.
So even if it managed to charge, Garbow could act as a shield.

This dungeon had a lot of rock-type enemies, and they tended to use physical attacks instead of magic.
And Garbow had high physical resistance, so there was no need to worry even if he was hit.


Bleated Mister White Goat, as if to show his enthusiasm.
That wasn’t good news for me.
But he wouldn’t understand if I tried to explain.
And so I took the goat and the fish and continued my exploration of the Capricorn Labyrinth.
