TSKD 177

177. The Menace Known as the Beast Lord.

Fran left Aurel’s manor after receiving her award. The blue catkin that’d been gathered outside earlier were already nowhere to be seen. They’d likely already given up and gone home.

『Alright, what now?』

「Will talk to Dias.」

『Good point. Let’s go ask him about the Black Catkin he knew 53 years back, and get all our questions answered right away.』


And so, we went to the Adventurer’s Guild. The act of visiting it, however, in no way guaranteed our ability to actually meet with Dias. He was known for going in and out of the building, so our only choice was to just check if and hope that he was present.

But we couldn’t.

We instead ended up immediately taking a stance the moment we tried to enter the guild. More accurately, we became unable to resist the urge to ready ourselves for combat.




The reason for which was the sheer extent of the pressure that’d suddenly assaulted us. Said pressure didn’t contain any bloodlust or even the slightest hint of aggression, but, we felt overwhelmed and intimidated regardless. That was just how strong its source happened to be. We were the only people around, and hence, the only people on guard, but I was sure that any other adventurer would’ve reacted in the same manner.

I surveyed my surroundings, only to find what could only be described as a strange looking door. It was in the middle of the road and didn’t have anything to support it. It was just there. I immediately interpreted it as something along the lines of a Dokodemo Door, a portal that could lead basically anywhere. Though, it was a bit different from the standard variant, seeing as how its appearance was that of a pair of super fancy double doors. The pressure’s source was evidently whatever lay waiting for us on the door’s other side.

I almost seemed to have jinxed it, as the door slowly began to open the moment I had that exact thought. In said moment, I managed to catch a quick glimpse of the furniture that lay beyond.

Okay, welp. I guess that must mean it really is a Dokodemo Door, huh?

「Right this way, Lord Rig.」


A figure emerged from the door’s other side. The man’s frame was so massive that it put even Erza’s to shame. He stood at almost two meters tall, and had pretty much built purely of muscle. The way his shimmering, yellow-gold hair was arranged to look like a lion’s mane really seemed to match with the way his movements almost seemed to resemble those of a felines’.

I instantly appraised the man the moment I saw him.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh shiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeetttttt! The fuck is with his stats!? The hell!? Why does he have over 1k strength!? Holy shit, dude makes Amanda and Dias look like fucking kittens.

He also had a tonne of skills we hadn’t seen before, alongside an extra skill and several unique and innate skills.

All those, however, were basically completely overshadowed by the two titles he held: Beast Lord and S Ranked Adventurer. Wait, wait, did that mean that he was the Beast Lord? The one paying Ulmutt a courtesy visit? He isn’t just some really strong adventurer crowned the Lord of the Beasts, right? I mean, he is an S ranked adventurer, so that is at least a possibility of some sort, right…?

I wanted to examine his skills in more detail, but stopped myself as I noticed someone follow him out the door.

「What’s wrong, girl?」

We looked up to see yet another man with a massive frame. His muscles were massive; they bulged to such an extent that I almost wanted to say he’d be able to beat a stone golem in a punch out. Unlike the Beast Lord, he was a man I at least knew of, one of the Beast Lord’s two guards. I recalled him being named something along the lines of Goldalfa.

Apparently he thought Fran had seemed rather suspicious, given how she was staring at the pair in silence.

Crap. The Beast Lord’ll probably end up making note of us at this rate.

『Hey Fran, let’s get the hell out of here while we still have the chance.』


I figured that we’d best get out of here, so I tried calling out to Fran, but she didn’t respond.

『Fran? Hey Fran, you alright?』


She instead continued to just stand there with a pale look on her face.

(Too strong… Can’t win…)

Fran had always been able to keep her cool, even in front of beastkin that’d evolved, like Aurel or Rumina. Sure, she respected them, but she was capable of handling herself. But now, she was completely frozen over in fear.

Though, I guess it was kind of fair. The Beast Lord was a Golden Flame Lion, a member of the original ten tribes Aurel had just told us about. We’d imagined the tribes’ members to be strong, but never could we have even fathomed for them to be this strong. He was already intimidating enough as he usually was. I could totally seeing him instantly killing any weaker foes just by throwing his bloodlust at them.

Beastkin seemed more or less capable of intuiting how strong other beastkin were, so I didn’t really think it’d be weird for someone like Fran to get like this in front of one as strong as the Beast Lord.

「Huh? Oh, hey, you girl. Aren’t you a Black Catkin?」

Shit. The Beast Lord actually noticed us. Worse, he was looking at Fran as if he was trying to evaluate her.

「It’s pretty rare to see a Black Catkin adventurer.」

「Especially one with a decent amount of skill.」

Goldalfa added to his lord’s comment with a compliment.

「She doesn’t look skilled to me.」

「That is just because your standards are far too high, Lord Rig.」

「That so? Oh well, I can’t say I’m not curious, so I guess I’ll bite and show her a bit of affection.」

Tsk. Fran had caught his eye, and not in a good way.

The manner in which he looked at her was akin to that of a lion that’d found itself some prey; his gaze was full of fighting spirit.

Fran, on the other hand, was still completely frozen. The fact that she was in the beast lord’s presence had already caused her to completely break down.

(No… Will be killed…)


Urushi was the same, despite the fact that he was still hidden away in the shadows.

I considered teleporting us out, but realized that it was possible that running away like that would just bring us even more trouble further down the road. In other words, warping was nothing but a last resort. Neither option was really much better than the other, so I decided to just prioritize Fran’s will and go with what she wanted.

Or at least that’s what I would have done had I needed to.

「I am sorry Lord Rig, but I do not think you have the time for it.」

「Ugh, come on, Royce.」

A third person emerged from the door and called out to the Beast Lord. He too was someone I remembered, the carriage’s second guard.

The door almost seemed to melt away the moment he touched it. It was probably something he’d created with one of his abilities to begin with.

「We’re already late for the meeting we scheduled with the Guildmaster. We really need to hurry it up.」

「Mannnn, I guess it can’t be helped. Be grateful, girl. It looks like you’ll get to keep your life, for now at least.」

「Lord Rig, the line you just said made you appear like a gangster.」

Goldalfa offered Rigdis some advice on his lack of etiquette, but was immediately shot down.

「There ain’t much of a difference between a noble society and a mafia anyways.」

「I would very much beg to differ.」

Again, Goldalfa offered a correct, and again, his opinion was ignored.

「Yeah, yeah, yeah, shut up already. Let’s just hurry the hell up and get a move on.」

Whew. Thankfully, it looked like Rigdis ended up losing his interest in Fran, as he ended up going further into the guild whilst speaking with his bodyguards.

Fran collapsed onto her hands and knees the moment he vanished from her line of sight.

She was gasping desperately for air with all four of her limbs on the ground and sweat profusely dripping from her body, a miserable state.

『Hey, you still doing okay?』


Yeah no. There was no way she was, but she nodded in a show of assent regardless. Well, at least she’d finally regained the ability to respond to me.

『Let’s just get out of here, go back to the inn, and get ourselves rested up. We can head back into the dungeon first thing tomorrow morning and put off talking to Dias till some time later, alright?』


I teleported us near the inn after helping Fran up with telekinesis. I knew it was flashy, and that people might see us, but I figured it would be best for us to have her get some rest right away, teleporting was still less conspicuous than having her walk through town in her current state.

『Can you still walk?』

「Still fine…」

She only barely managed to drag her feet along as she walked. She was clearly even more drained than she would be after a fierce battle.

『Man, the Beast Lord sure did live up to his name. Dude was a total monster. Let’s try making sure we’re C rankers by the next time we run into him.』


[1] Seems as good a time as any for me to explain the difference between the two types of Qigong. In Japan, Qigong is described as “Hard” and “Soft,” which I translated as “Combat” and “Inner” respectively. Combat Qigong is effectively the same thing as martial arts. You use it to punch people. Inner Qigong is what relates to the healing other people with your qi (ki) stuff and whatnot. Note that these are derived from Chinese meanings, and, funnily enough differ greatly from their roots due to some sort of ancient localization error. China doesn’t actually have the “hard qigong” or “soft qigong” terms. They do have the hard/soft strength concept, but it’s applied quite differently. The hard concept is when one strengthens one’s own body. The soft concept is when one makes one’s own body more flexible. Both can be applied in a combat sense; the first is related to brute force or head on strikes, whereas the second is more closely related to receiving another individual’s blow and returning with a counter, preferably one that uses the attacker’s strength against them. Do keep in mind that Qi (Ki) is still related to the concept of healing, and good fighters are commonly also people with great control over their ki, and therefore capable of healing others. It’s quite difficult to explain this in detail without like 5k words, so I’ll just leave it at this for now.

[2] One piece reference. I was going to localize it the same way they localized it in one piece, but the I found out that the lazy fucks didn’t… which I guess makes sense because they have to worry about lip sync, but still. Gdi, I wanted to slack off and not think.

[3] This is higher tier than “Divine” because Japan says so. I was thinking of not literally translating it and instead going with “Transcendent,” but I ultimately ended up just saying fuck it. I remember someone warning me about this, but I didn’t want to think of something to replace “Divine X Arts” at the time. I still don’t. Now, if the series was finished and I already knew all the tiers, then I’d actually bother, but it’s too much of a pain when the author can still introduce higher tier shit going forward.

  1. I feel like Master is getting dumber as the series progresses. He was told not to appraise high nobility and he does it without thinking about it. At least it hasn’t caused a problem yet.

    Liked by 12 people

      1. probably because he didn’t want it… if a arrogant thug have stat like that.. did he want to hide it or show it off?
        bet that Lord Thugs would choose the latter…
        so.. who need appraisal detection or blocked apprasial skill…
        with that show off the enemies who appraising him would think twice to confront him.


    1. I’m wondering if the beast lord wanting to show her affection (torture her to death) was more than her just being a black cat, but also because he felt something. He doesn’t have appraisal detection, but he does have some detection skills and super high stats.

      Liked by 1 person

    2. Yeah, that’s my first thought. Some guardian he is. When someone in his charge is standing there like a deer in headlights he is attracting attention to them with appraisal.


      1. To be fair appraisal is a powerful tool that lets you judge the danger.

        Even if they can detect it, he could teleport them away.


      2. Yeap, He is warned and advised to be careful (do not use appraisal reckless) about how he used his skills yet continue to act like that (also warned about loyalty)….With this chapter I see him as the most annoying, brainless MC character 😦
        Author need to change his INT stat as 1 or 2 o.O

        ps:thanks a lot for the chapter


      3. Master doesn’t have an INT stat. Ht is a sword, his only stats are “attack power” and “magic conductivity”.
        Yeah, this MC literally doesn’t have a brain too.


    3. while i do agree, that’s not on the character, it’s on the Author. The whole reason for appraisal is a tool to show us in numerical values how strong a character is, and he wanted to convey REALLY bad about the strength of the Lion King, hence the whole appraisal thing in this chapter.

      Liked by 4 people

      1. Don’t you think Fran’s reaction is more than enough to show us how strong he is? She was completely fine in front of A-Class adventurers like Amanda and even challenged her several times. In front of the Beast Lord she nearly passed out just because of the pressure. No need for numerical values, leave them to our imagination.

        If the author wants Master to continue using Appraisal willy-nilly, than just claim only those with max level perception can perceive him using it. Because his appraisal skill is max, because of Eyes of Empyrea , because he luckily found a magic beast with a useful skill, or something similar.


  2. ….I hope when she gets stronger she makes him kneel. Really seems like a piece of crap. Wanting to show affection, calling her lucky to be alive for now. She’s a D rank and he does that that’s a di** move. I can’t wait till she gets so strong she can just walk past him and not give a damn

      1. But generally that rule applies to people of the same generation!

        A mere child of another damn country is NOT something that a S class adventurer beast lord has any business challenging to a fight to the death.

        I hope she freaking kills this piece of shit later.

      2. ryuukun17, there IS a reason for that, but, yeah, punishment to a whole race and all succeeding generations for the misdeeds of a few of them… that’s totally BS treatment, even for a god…


      3. Deciding social position by personal strength is a fundamentally bad idea.
        Especially if you’re in a world where a random thug with no strength of character like that lion can be an S-rank spearlord.
        There are many ways to get rid of “strong” people like him, like poison and strength of numbers and technology and heroes. And they should be used. He will only run his country into the ground.


      4. Reading my comments again, I really must take part of my words back. Even if the current Beast King doesn’t have much brains, he turned out to be better than I thought.


    1. She probably need to evolve before that happen, given that she already reach lv cap, and also given that she already reach lv cap evolve should be pretty close or else the story cant progress XD


  3. Thanks for the chapter ^_^
    Welp, beast king is just as i thought. An op man who doesnmt give a shit. Well whatever. Wonder how long it will take shishou and fran to level up to that point!


  4. I guess in a way, it’s good that Fran realised the difference in her ability with a S rank adventurer so she won’t hastily tried to assassinate the beast king. Once she overcomes this and found the evo path, she’ll definitely make him eat his own words


  5. Thanks for the Chapter!
    Tsk..Master use appraisal again in a Royalty or higher position
    Fran might be imprisoned because of that ! Mc is has a bird memory( forgetting dias advice after an hour)


  6. I always take it as Hard/external Qi is when you coat your body with qi, so that it can be used for attacks, can also be channeled into weapons, or blasted off in kamehameha style; Inner/Soft Qi is when they gather spiritual strength, focus your mind to boost parameters, and can be used to promote healing for you or others. So it’s the difference between active and passive skill.


      1. No, I mean like, you have to actively manipulate it, pour it out of you to use as a weapon or armor, or go the inner qi path, which is more like a level up, you build up power that makes you stronger.


  7. Honestly I wish the author would just give the MC an OP version of appraisal that can’t be detected.

    The author is clearly more interested in showing off the stats of new characters than following his own rule about the MC not appraising everything that moves. So instead of just ignoring it without consequence for no reason just give him a reason to be able to appraise without consequence or worry.

    1. I’d agree if the person was a normal one, but this guy gave off so much intimidation, that they had to assess the danger, hence appraisal.

      I’d say you would be dumb not too.


      1. But they explicitly stated that his aura was non-hostile. And they already knew that he was absurdly powerful. A guy who can rain death by swords down on a region can save you from a giant ascending demon, while a cute little black kitten can torture people to death, it isn’t just about power. Performing hostile actions against forces that are far greater than yours when they are previously not hostile and you have no means of backing up your hostility is just stupid.

        About the only valuable information they got was “Torture 2” which he probably could have gotten from deliberately attacking injuries while fighting monsters. “S-rank”? They already knew that his aura was beyond any A-ranks they met. “Beast lord”? They could have gotten that from waiting a few seconds to see the escorts. The guy walks around with his kill-record traits visible to anyone with appraisal, so there is no leverage there because it would have been picked up earlier if anyone had authority to criticise it. The spear stuff is a pretty simple extrapolation from his rank and the weapon he uses. His relative lack of magic is useful, but, again, only in a fight, and social skills seem to be based on skill opposition rather than personal power, so there is no special reason to appraise him in that regard just because of his aura. And if he had teleportation blocking then he would have activated it while they were still reading through the appraisal data because appraisal is something that a spy or assassin would use and they don’t want to suffer a scry-and-die later on.

        Nope, there was no good reason to use appraisal here, just curiosity. Appraisal can wait until you have confirmed that you actually want to get into a fight, or have some pressing reason to spy on someone.


      2. MC has “unsealable”, a skill that allows him to escape things like teleportation blocking.

        Also, opening dimension doors in the middle of a city without warning is a sufficient breach of manners to justify appraisal use. What if the one who came out of the door was demon lord and his army of invaders?


      3. “MC has “unsealable”, a skill that allows him to escape things like teleportation blocking.”
        How da fuq is that supposed to help when someone way faster than fran is tring to spear tham to death? Pretty sure some 50 meters teleport isn’ ganna halp much


      4. 50 meters on a flat plane isn’t much. 50 meters in a densely populated town is much better. 50 meters down into a dungeon is a sure escape.
        And of course, it’s always possible to spam teleport to move really fast if you have mana for that.


  8. Fck, is that a flag or foreshadowing of a fight between Fran and BeastKing??

    And btw how will Fran get stronger now that shes level capped? She needs to evolve first to get additional stats to match that d!ckhead.
    Having a ton of skill doesnt do well if the stats cant follow.


    1. Seeing how the guy is overwhelmingly powerful, Fran got warned in advance that he MIGHT be a nasty piece of work and it seems like he might’ve just offed her on a whim in the middle of the street… my guess would be that the guy is actually a somewhat decent guy, only with a really nasty sense of humor – and good reasons for having killed his own father. Especially considering his clear disdain for noble society in general.


  9. If I remember correctly, the two types of Ki (Qi) differs both on how to use it and the nature of its user. I don’t know the details, but even Hard Qi could also be used for healing, it seems.

    According to my (unreliable) memory, there are two types of Qi attack. A full fist, punching as hard as you can, using the hard Qi to make a violent energy and give outer damages to the body. And an empty fist, hitting using either an empty palm or fingers, manipulating one’s own Qi to wreck the opponent’s body from inside. You know, that Hyuga Neji stuff.

    Also, In myths, it was told that if you can manipulate your Qi(Energy) well you can walk in the wall and do many other things.

    Also, that Doraemon Reference (Dokodemo Door/Everywhere Door).


  10. CardboardTL, first and foremost I wanted to thank you for the outstanding standard and speed of your translation. That being said are you sure about the following two lines of the beast lord?

    I guess I’ll bite and show her a bit of affection.

    It looks like you’ll get to keep your life, for now at least.

    I know the story ahead and I just can’t believe that he wants to antagonise Fran so much at this point…


    1. I’m sure. The author’s just *seems to be* making him out to be a dick.

      Here are the raws -> very literal, if you’re curious how things got turned into what.

      「そういうものか? まあいい。興味がわいた、少し可愛がってやるか」
      “Is that how it is? Well, that’s fine. (Implicit ‘She has’) caught my interest. I will spoil/show affection for her a little bit.”

      “Tsk. That’s right. It can’t be helped. Little girl, you have managed to get away with your life!”

      ^ these are really literal, garbage translations, but should allow anyone that’s learning JP to figure out how X turned into Y

  11. master and fran both idiot they has been tell not come to king or noble but they so arrogant always,

    they lucky king not kill them, in real life villain kill you faster will not wait for u become strong might danger his life someday,


  12. Here’s a crazy thought – the current Beast Lord is not evil.

    With his stats alone, he could have killed Fran a hundred times over without her nor Master noticing.
    I think him saying “so I guess I’ll bite and show her a bit of affection” was more like “let’s spar”.

    One of his guards said:
    > I am sorry Lord Rig, but I do not think you have the time for it.

    Killing Fran wouldn’t take too much time, so it has to be something different. His “torture” is only level 2, so it doesn’t look like he’s into this kind of things.
    And all his titles are clean, except for the “Kingslayer”. But since he has the “Loved by the God of Beasts and Insects” title, the previous king was probably an asshole.

    Now, based on this series of dialogs:
    > Mannnn, I guess it can’t be helped. Be grateful, girl. It looks like you’ll get to keep your life, for now at least.
    > Lord Rig, the line you just said made you appear like a gangster.
    > There ain’t much of a difference between a noble society and a mafia anyways.

    He’s an easy going, not too found of nobles, likes to show off, a muscle-brain type of character. Like Takamura from Hajime no Ippo.

    Might be completely wrong though, lol.

    1. i agree ya on this, but still, S rank and king of beast wanting to fight weak(from his perspective) and young D rank girl in middle of town just becouse she is black catkin doesnt make him favorable character too


      1. Maybe he/they sense there are potentiality for Fran to get stronger (eventhough currently she is stuck at her level cap). Maybe one of the requirements for evolving is facing them. (battle with opponents that you sure you could not win but still try it anyway)


      2. King himself said she doesn’t look skilled to him and ofc he wouldnt even care about hers evolution at his moment.
        For Fran, she already faught few times against opponents she could not win (skeleton/A rank adventurer/demon/dung master black cat)


      3. I’m sorry if I failed to make this explicit, but the Beast Lord “bites” the “bait” Goldalfa sets. That is, he states that he is willing to toy around with her precisely because Goldalfa claims that she’s strong for a Black Catkin.

    2. Dias already said that the king has a problematic status cause he is parricdal and took the crown with force (aka he killed his father, the old king)


  13. If you are talking of “Haki” for dominating aura, than it’s not a term that originated from one piece, it’s one of the most famous recent example, but this term has been used since a long time in chinese and Japanese martial art stuff (novel, manga, etc…).
    You can find this term describing some characters aura and way of living from Romance of the three kingdoms (14th century) to Hokuto no Ken (1983), Raoh is quite the textbook example of Haki based characters and feel pretty close to the beastlord as he is described right now…


  14. I think its first time Fran took so much mental dmg, but i guess it will be important expierence and will help her overcome some obstacles in future.

    I saw alot of comments flaming master about him using appraisal. But i think this time was legit, Mc was using it whole (sword)life till he came to this town so he cant change his habit instant, to him appraisal is same as swordsman getting ready his battle stance or putting hand on sword after sensing danger. like auto self defense instinct


  15. Should “Divine” be “Angelic” instead?

    天神 (Thiên Thần) means heavenly angel.

    眞神 (Chân Thần) means true angel.

    神 (Thần) is never translate to God in proper Vietnamese. Only those people who called their Leser Gods as Saints and not Gods would translate 神 (Thần) into God.

    主 (Chúa) Princess is a euphemism for God.

    主 (Chủ) Master is a different word with the same Chinese character.

    君 (Quân) Prince is rearly used after the spring autumn period.


    1. I can assure you that, in this case, angelic would be incorrect according to the Japanese use of the term. 聖 is typically used for holy, or attached to the the name of a saint, especially in the sword saint-type context. To that end, Sword Saint Arts, Spear Saint Arts, would be the most correct. However, Axe Saint Arts just sounds odd in English, and hence, I have avoided that manner of translation for one that sounds more natural. The reason that angelic is incorrect is because, while 聖 does indicate that something is not godlike, it is not used to express a lesser degree of divinity.

      I would also like to point out that the use of kanji differs greatly between specific languages, and that most of the knowledge is non transferable. I personally know both Chinese and Japanese, and can tell you this for certain, as I’ve spoken one since I could speak, and the other since I was a kid.

      Referring to the words you listed, for example, 神 does indeed refer to Gods in Japanese. All gods are referred to as such. 主 typically only refers to God in the Christian context, and actually is used to say “you” in many cases. 君 is actually often considered a less polite way to say “you” in Japanese, though it does depend on context. Given what you’ve stated above, Vietnamese meanings are completely inapplicable to Japanese text, as none of them match up to any significant extent, as it’s quite normal even in the western world. I’ll use some other languages I happen to know as an example. In English, for example, “crayon” is that weird coloured thingy children use. In French, it means pencil.

      tl;dr Different languages are different.


  16. Oh ho. Parricide, Usurper… Looks like we have a Beast Lord who schemed and murdered his way into his position rather than inheriting it in the proper manner.


  17. The blue catkin that’d been gathered outside earlier were already nowhere to be seen. They’d likely already given up and gone home.
    I must admit I am shocked. I expect this to lead up to the obligatory “they wait to ambush Fran because reasons, and watch Fran brutally ruin them, but its okay because she is the heroin and they planned to do bad things.


  18. The BS just keeps coming. From unrealistic fights to using appraisal on everything. Unsealable?

Step was supposed to be instant he also got a bunch of skills that lets him cast instant/silent/nochant, BUT NO HE CANT STEP WHEN FUCKING NEEDED TO DODGE. TOO LITTLE TIME, BUT FUCKING ENOUGH TIME TO SET UP 2 INSTANT BARRIES, BUT NOOOOOOO I CANT STEP EEEEEWWW AAAAW. Seriously i don’t even know why i still read this infuriating BS. oh i do Fran cute -_- and loving the intelligent sword thing that is going on, only wish the sword wasn’t dumber than an intelligent pig.


    1. Unsealable just prevents your Magic/Skills from being sealed. When they fought the Lich, they couldn’t teleport at all, even once they stole his Time/Space skill, because the room was enchanted to seal that ability. Which is why they needed to also steal the Unsealable skill to get out of there. When Rynford put up his barrier, it didn’t seal their ability to teleport; they could still teleport anywhere ‘within’ the barrier. It simply repelled them if they tried to pass through it.

      As for using teleportation offensively, that’s a bad idea for a lot of reasons, several of which are explored in later chapters. Suffice to say, it’s far less effective, or even counter-productive, against skilled opponents, especially if they’re expecting it, and those are the only ones that merit that kind of effort.


  19. >”don’t appraise everyone you meet”
    >proceeds to appraise every person he sees, including a dungeon master and beast lord, despite inferring that both could easily destroy him at the slightest offense before even using appraisal


  20. 「The current Beast Lord is especially unpopular. They pried the role from their predecessor in what may as well have been a coup d’etat.」

    「Oh, I heard about that too. They say the newest Beast Lord is a parricidal thief.」
    For those that don’t remember what was said abaut the beast lord.
    He has tbe kingslayer and parricid titles cause he took the beast lore position by killing his father.
    This might make him seem bad but we don’t know anything abaut said father(and the nobility is like mafia comment pretty much confirms that the one now wasn’t nurtured to be the justice for everyone type)


  21. So, how ridiculously strong are the black heavenly tigerkin, considering that a normal black tigerkin oneshot Fran while holding back a ton, and considering that Spear Bastard seems about that level of ridiculousness plus one.


  22. Glad to see that the new ability that makes him imune to psychological effects he spent a bunch of points on works as great as all of his other abilities..
