Defense Specialization and the Border Line
750 Name: Anonymous Greatsword Wielder
Has everyone tamed their monsters already?
751 Name: Anonymous Spear Wielder
I’m still looking around.
It would be tragic if I chose carelessly and then found a better one later on.
752 Name: Anonymous Archer
I found some rare monsters that have pretty easy requirements.
753 Name: Anonymous Sorcerer
There are a lot of animal-types. But I want something like a golem.
754 Name: Anonymous Greatshield Wielder
A few members of my guild have already tamed monsters.
755 Name: Anonymous Archer
Did Maple get a second monster?
756 Name: Anonymous Greatshield Wielder
Yes and no.
757 Name: Anonymous Greatsword Wielder
I see… So, what is it?
758 Name: Anonymous Greatshield Wielder
759 Name: Anonymous Sorcerer
What the hell.
760 Name: Anonymous Greatshield Wielder
Well… She didn’t so much as tame it, as absorb it…her arm can turn into a tentacle.
761 Name: Anonymous Spear Wielder
Most people wouldn’t do something like that.
762 Name: Anonymous Sorcerer
So, now she has something that is between human and monster form.
763 Name: Anonymous Archer
Well, I guess.
But how much of her is still human…?
764 Name: Anonymous Greatshield Wielder
Yeah, she was like something between a human and a monster.
I’m sure you’ll have a chance to feel its power during a future event.
765 Name: Anonymous Greatsword Wielder
But with Maple’s status, I think I could get away even if I’m caught.
766 Name: Anonymous Spear Wielder
Her STR is so low.
767 Name: Anonymous Archer
Well, most people would not be able to think if they saw a girl with a tentacle arm. So you’ll definitely get hit by the first attack.
768 Name: Anonymous Greatshield Wielder
I understand. I was like that too.
769 Name: Anonymous Sorcerer
This isn’t an area to absorb monsters, right?
770 Name: Anonymous Greatsword Wielder
I bet she’ll turn into a chimera by the next event.
771 Name: Anonymous Archer
I know that this is a town where you can walk around with your monster, but surely they didn’t mean monsters that were last bosses…
772 Name: Anonymous Spear Wielder
It grew so much without a master, right?
Is she going to use tentacles as bait now?
773 Name: Anonymous Greatshield Wielder
Maple used the tentacles she brought back to make some takoyaki
Something black did come out, but it wasn’t mist!
774 Name: Anonymous Sorcerer
You shouldn’t eat anything so dangerous.
These five people had no idea that Maple actually ate some of the tentacles while it was still alive.
