The world's strongest S-class adventurer, known as the Thunder Emperor, shows his power without restraint and becomes a warrior in the Academy of Magic - Chapter 1
“Here you go. Two Red Dragon fangs, ten claws, and one eyeball – oh, I destroyed the other eyeball, sorry. The rest of it is at …… and the rest is on the front wagon. Check it out.”
“Um, …… red dra …… yeah?”
Lowood, a city located in the southern part of the Kingdom of Scardia.
The Adventurer’s Guild, Lowood Branch, is located in a corner of the city. Since it was night, the adventurer’s guild, which was drinking and having a drinking spree, reacted to the voice of a man wearing a black robe and a mask, and all the adventurer’s guilds fell silent at once.
Red Dragon. A dragon that had recently taken up residence in Zidna, a sacred peak south of Lowood, a class S disaster that would normally require thirty A-class adventurers or even ten S-class adventurers to defeat, a class S disaster that was difficult to defeat.
Early that morning, this man visited the Adventurer’s Guild and said to the receptionist, “I want to take an S-class quest. I’m solo,” he told the receptionist, and the tavern erupted in laughter. Because it was a request that was tantamount to suicide. There was no one to stop him. Because there are a few people like this every year, and it was like an annual event.
“Another A-class adventurer in a hurry to get the job done,” the men sneered. The men scoffed at him.
There are a surprisingly large number of adventurers who can become an A-class adventurer (though that’s only because they think they can). If you join a party, you can participate in the higher quests, so it’s not that difficult to clear the requirements to reach Class A.
That’s why A-class adventurers often underestimate their own abilities and take on S-class quests like this. You’ll find many adventurers who have died in this way.
–I’m not going to be able to say that I’m not going to be able to do anything about it. It is no wonder that the men, who are completely drunk and ready to go, have become stunned and quiet.
”Umm …… adventurer name Van, are you sure you are ……?”
Hearing that name, the entire Adventurer’s Guild buzzed with excitement.
”Van is …… the youngest genius sorcerer to be promoted to the A level!”
“I’ve heard you do quite a bit of A-level stuff: …… Are you real!”
“I thought I’d seen that mask before… but it’s the Thunder Goddess!”
Speaking of which, that thunderclap you mentioned earlier was ……
Mouthfuls of adventurers gossip about Van.
Van, the A-class adventurer. He is the youngest person ever to be promoted to A-class status at the age of fourteen and is a genius magician. However, he wears a mask covered with protective magic and his true identity is unknown. He appears out of nowhere and has used his overwhelming magical powers to complete many quests solo.
However, Van’s voice was heard in the background as he continued his conversation with the receptionist.
”Within a year, you must complete thirty or more B-class quests, twenty or more A-class quests, defeat at least five A-class monsters …… and at least one S-class quest. –I’m pretty sure that was a requirement to become an S-class, right?”
‘Yes, yes ……, um, excuse me, guild plate, please.”
Van removes the silvery plate hanging around his neck and hands it to the receptionist.
”–Yes, with the accomplishment of this quest, Van has achieved promotion to …… uh, S-class ……!
The whole guild erupted in cheers.
This is where the youngest S-class adventurer is born.
The plate hung from his neck went from silver to gold. It’s the class that only has about thirty people on the continent. Above this, there were only seven SS-classes on the continent.
Contrary to the guild that was bubbling with excitement at witnessing the birth of a legend, the masked adventurer Van didn’t show any signs of happiness.
After receiving the reward money and completing the paperwork, he quietly heads out of the guild.
”Oh, hey Van! Grade S, man! Do you want to have a drink with us?”
“Yes, yes, congratulations! I can’t believe we’re getting an S-level from our chapter! Look, the chapter chief is here to celebrate, too.”
From the back of the Adventurer’s Guild, a large, dark-haired man appeared from the back of the Adventurer’s Guild with a celebratory drink in hand.
”Congratulations on your promotion to the …… S-class! After A-level, he was the youngest person to be promoted to S-level at the age of 15. ……! We have our noses in the air as a Lowood chapter. Will you let us celebrate with you?”
The pleasant-looking chapter leader smiles, his narrow eyes dimming further.
Van, however, shakes his head.
“No, no, it’s fine. To me, S-grade is just a passing phase, not something to celebrate.”
“No, I didn’t mean to.”
“…… haha. Fuck, you just want to make a fuss about me getting promoted. Here.”
Van throws the bag of rewards for the quest in his hand to the branch chief.
“Huh? …… What’s this?”
“You want to make noise, go ahead and make all the noise you want with this. I don’t want my money.”
Instantly, a cheer erupts.
‘Whoa! You’re a class S adventurer, indeed! You know what you’re talking about!”
“Bring me the booze, bring me the booze! It’s on Master Van’s dime!”
“Yo, greatest magician of all time!”
And all of them begin to make a festive noise. It’s a typical scene for the Adventurer’s Guild. The head of the branch also sighs with a sense of relief.
“Well then. I’ll be leaving. I’m going to go home.”
“Oh, hey! Mr. Van!”
The Branch Chief leaves the Adventurer’s Guild after Van.
“I won’t wait. I’ll be back when you get your next quest.”
The chapter leader involuntarily covered his face as the light emitted from the magic circle that unfolded in front of him.
A huge magic circle appeared at his feet. The next moment, Van’s body standing on it began to shine with a golden color.
The sound of a violent explosion like a lightning strike and, along with the light, disappeared from the scene in an instant.
All that was left was the oddly charred ground and the curling gray smoke.
In the Adventurer’s Guild where Van had left off, the celebration of the promotion of the stranger Van continued until morning.
