Overlord Volume 9 Intermission


Translator: ZackTan, Nigel 
Editors: Viet Nguyen, Ferro, Nigel, M
In a small but luxurious room, a young girl sat on a throne. She spoke in a voice that was very innocent and cute, and which was quite fitting for her age.
“Okie, I’m counting on you then!”
“Yes, your Majesty! I won’t fail you!”
The man who looked like a knight rose from where he was kneeling and elegantly left the room.
After the door had been closed for a while, the girl then asked the minister at her side.
“Is it okay now?”
“Yes, he was the last person, so it's fine.”
After hearing the minister's cold words, the girl's innocent expression suddenly crumbled.
Perhaps it was because of fatigue, but her eyes clouded over and narrowed, while her mouth formed a ^ shape and her shoulders drooped.
“So tiring.”
Her attitude and tone was that of a 40-year old woman, but her voice still sounded young and cute, which was at odds with her appearance.
“You’ve worked hard.”
“Yes, I have, so can I stop putting on this appearance now?” The girl pulled up her skirt while saying this. “I could do without this skirt that shows off the full length of my legs as well.”
“I have told you many times before, but you can’t, your Majesty.”
The girl was the queen of the Draconic Kingdom, “Black Scale Dragon Lord” Draudiron Oriucrus.
Even though she was called a Dragon Lord, her fighting ability was no greater than that of a normal person. However the Slane Theocracy still considered her to be a Dragon Lord because of the unique ability she was born with, the extremely rare ability which was the difference between a true Dragon Lord and an impostor.
She could use Wild Magic, the proof of power which distinguished a true Dragon Lord from a false one.
“As long as your appearance can evoke the desire in others to protect you, they will work harder.”
“Are all humans lolicons? I would feel more comfortable if certain parts of me were bigger.”
Draudiron put both of her hands on her flat chest and squeezed.
“Yes, if it was that form...”
“―Don't speak of it like a form! That is my real appearance!”
“I apologize for my disrespectful words, your Majesty.”
“Oi, that hardly sounds like an apology.”
That is not so.”
After staring at the minister's cold smile for a while, Draudiron realized that she would not be able to break down that expression of his, and she turned away in displeasure.
“Back to the topic, that form may be popular with men, but not so much with women. Instead, your present form appeals to men and women of all ages. So if you want to change back to that form, you will have to wait until the country is stable again. Or do you have any other plans to propose?”
“Don't speak of it as a form....”
“However, if the situation continues like this, whatever form you take will not matter anymore.”
A heavy silence fell for a while as they contemplated the current situation of the Draconic Kingdom. .
“The beastman invasion this time seems totally different from how they’ve always been.”
“Indeed. Their army's motive this time does not appear to be small scale skirmishes, but the complete destruction of this country, followed by turning it into a livestock ranch.”
There was a beastman kingdom near the Draconic Kingdom.
Said beastmen were demi-humans similar to various carnivorous animals such as tigers and lions, but bipedal. Just looking at their faces would tell you that they were carnivorous, and they preferred human meat.
Man-eating races were quite common. Three out of the six biggest countries on the continent viewed humans as food. The Troll Kingdom near the center of the continent even considered 6-month old human fetuses to be an exquisite delicacy, which they served to their most honored guests.
Therefore, the beastman treated the Draconic Kingdom as a food supply to be harvested.
Until recently, the Draconic Kingdom had been regarded as a food source that would replenish itself even when left alone, so the beastmen had not launched a full-scale invasion of the Draconic Kingdom before. But for some unknown reason, such an invasion had occurred. So far, they had conquered three cities.
In those conquered cities, there were horrible banquets that went on day and night, which made the Queen want to vomit when she heard about what was done there.
Faced with this external enemy that could not be bargained with, the humans banded together to resist until the end. However, the difference in ability between the beastmen and humans was just too great to overcome.
If both human and beastman were of the same species, then a beastman would have ten times the strength of a human.
Using the adventurer's rating system, if a human was rated at 3, then a beastman would be rated at 30. The only saving grace for humanity was that exceptional beastmen were surprisingly rare, possibly because the beastmen themselves were already very powerful and generally balanced to begin with.
“Even though we can stall the enemies with the adventurer groups lead by adamantite-ranked adventurers, the enemy are just too numerous. When several tribe-sized groups spread out to attack, we cannot stop them all at once. Therefore, in the end we have to gather all the citizens to the capital, and wait for the enemy to run out of food. However, it is much more likely that our food situation will deteriorate first.”
“What a headache. The future is shrouded in darkness.”
“I propose we take down the enemy general. How about we choose a few elite troops to attack them? Although it seems to be an unnecessary move that may only anger them, since the attacks will not stop anyway, it is still better than doing nothing.”
“If so, the one leading this time will be him?”
“Yes, it is him.”
They were both referring to the same person, a man who was part of “Crystal Tear”, this Kingdom’s only adamantite-ranked adventurer team. His name was Cerabrate, with the title of “Fierce Flash”. He was a member of the “Holy Lord” class, and he was famous for using the Shining Sword technique.
“That person is definitely a lolicon. When I was talking to him, he was staring at me with lecherous eyes. If looking at flat things fills him with so much joy, he should go stare at a wall.”
“It is just a fetish... although he really is a lolicon.”
Draudiron began to frown.
“I wish you hadn't said that… If only our country had more normal adamantite-ranked adventurers.”
“What do you mean? As long as you act like a cute and innocent girl, he would risk his life to fight for us. Wouldn't he be the most suitable situation for us right now?”
“And when the time comes, I will have to satisfy his desires....Oi! Don't look at me like a roasted pig served up for tomorrow's feast!”
“Haaaa…”
Her veins popped out in anger as she sighed.
“It is only this much, your Majesty. It is a lot better than the citizens who are literally being eaten, so please bear with it.”
The queen could not refute him.
“If I had more money, I would have hired the whole “Optics” group. Speaking of which, what is the Slane Theocracy doing?”
“Well, I am not sure.”
“Don’t we donate a huge sum of money to them every year? Normally, they would have rushed here already. Even if it is not the Black Scripture, why haven’t they sent the Sunlight Scripture here?”
The fact that the Slane Theocracy was supporting the Draconic Kingdom was not publicised because she herself was the highest authority of this country.
“Relying on other countries for protection caused this situation in the end. It is quite depressing.”
“Do you think I want to rely on other countries? You should know that military spending was crippling our finances, and if we kept increasing it, our country would be bankrupt by now. Besides, it’s not like we can make an army appear out of nowhere just by spending more money!”     
The country had been spending a lot against the beastmen every year for a long time now, and yet the situation had still ended up like this. However, it could also be said that the amount spent was what had kept the situation under control.
“If the Slane Theocracy has abandoned us, what about seeking help from the Empire? If our country is destroyed, wouldn't the Empire be next?”
“There is still the Kattse Plains, so they won't reach the Empire immediately. If they follow a course around the lake, then the Slane Theocracy could be next.”
“...Even the beastmen are not brave enough to rush into an undead spawning ground.”
By the way, there were dragon-riding tribes in the route of their advance, but the queen and her minister did not consider the fact that they could be invaded.
“It is not about bravery, but more because the undead are inedible to them. Besides, there is no benefit in ruling that place. Only another undead creature would be happy to take and hold that cursed land. And the Empire is also quite busy, aren’t they?  It’s about time for their annual war.”
“It seems to have started quite late this year.”
“Yeah, it seems to have been delayed by half a year, due to some magic caster's declaration. Do you wish me to investigate?”
“Eh, who cares what happens in other countries! I’m more concerned about what to do to save our country!”
“Well, your Majesty brought up the topic first.....how about using your Majesty’s magic?”
The queen waved her finger to deflect the minister's suggestion. So this was all he knew about magic. Draudiron could only smile bitterly.
“Wild Magic... in this case, it’s usable by a human being because 1/8th of the blood in me belongs to a dragon. In the worst case scenario, it will only delay the destruction of the country. So it will be our last resort.”
“Last resort....I hope that day won't come. Then I will try to seek reinforcements again from the Slane Theocracy.”
“Please do~”
The minister glared coldly at Draudiron, as she replied in her adorable little girl’s voice.
“Just so, Your Majesty. Incidentally, if you have the energy to spare, please write thirty letters of encouragement to the officers at the frontline. In children's handwriting, of course.”
“Ueeeh~ Bring me alcohol! I can't write like that when I’m sober.”
“Understood, you can drink and get drunk all you want. But, finish your work by today.”
The minister bowed, and left the room.
After looking in the direction that he went for a while, she looked back down to her own hands.
“Wild Magic, huh...”
Wild Magic was different from typical magic because it was powered by souls, rather than mana. Therefore, it required the sacrifice of a lot of people, and the released souls would allow the casting of a powerful spell. According to her grandfather, magic like this could create an explosion that could rival the Platinum Dragon Lord’s ultimate attack.
However, for a person far weaker than a Dragon Lord like her, the sacrifice to initiate that sort of spell would be huge, estimated to be in the millions.
Draudiron covered her face with her hands.
She shuddered as she realized that no matter which path she chose, both would lead to hell―

    10. i understand what you people are trying to say, but having the web novel version is waaaay better than not having any version of overlord to read. As a fellow leecher who only speaks and reads english, it is highly unlikely for me to read any raw versions of overlord, and thus i feel depressed. I sincerely wish, and do not demend, that the web novel version of overlord would be translated after volume 9 of the ln version of overlord. Lol i think if we had a poll on whether to translate the wn version of overlord after volume 9 of the ln version is completed, the result would be in favor of it being translated. Anyways, i really appreciate the FACT that you guys made it this far with the ln novel. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH< P.S. if only yenpress didnt exist.....

    14. Maybe someone can enlighten me, but is it not a huge missed opportunity by the author to not have his work translated to English?
      He could even make a digital version of it to get rid of the usual cost associated with it, and I would assume it would net him a profit.

      Delete
  20. I can kinda understand the point of using Your Excellency last chapter even though Ainz is a King, since he is not the Empire's King and using Your Majesty might seem inappropriate. However, in this chapter, letting Loli Queen be addressed as Your Highness just seems wrong, since Highness is used for the Prince and Princess ranks. Shouldn't she be addressed as Your Majesty? All the more so because she is the sole ruler of the Draconic Kingdom. I do not understand the reasoning for using Your Highness which is clearly ranked below Your Majesty.

    For example, the Queen of England would be referred to as Your Majesty correct? And she's merely a figurehead yet that's what you would call her.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Perhaps that is so, but then again, the whole purpose of her being this loli character here..
      ..don't you think there's a possibility that she's acting as a woman just under the age of coronation?
      In other words, while it is true that she may be the sole leader, it is equally true that she's not the 'queen' yet, hmm?

      Thus, princess should be applicable?
      - just guessing here.


      PS. thanks for the translation, translator-team!! ;)

      Delete
    2. It's possibly a mistake, but I'd like to think it's all part of the ruse. She's made to act like a child, so whether by accident or design, she's treated like an adorable princess rather than the dignified queen she wants to be in order to reinforce the charade.

      Also, the only reason I can see for this intermission, other than for more world-building, is to hint at Ainz's next ally in world domination. I'd really like to see his operations finally extend beyond the scope of the three human nations.

      Delete
    3. I can see your points guys, but I don't think it would work when she is clearly the Queen of the Draconic Kingdom. It's not like Ainz faking as Momon and such, even if people go along with her and play, unless the raws explicitly infer that the lolicons and such refer to her as 'highness' aka as a princess, then she should still be a queen and therefore it should be 'majesty'.

      Now if anything implied she's trying to act like a princess, then that's a different matter, but as far as I could tell that wasn't the case. A queen can still be unmarried/youthful, especially since she apparently has no consort or whatever. It's not a modern setting where people associate Queen = old hag. Well, at least I don't think it is.

      Delete
    4. Jircniv already thinks of her as an old hag pretending to be a loli. I assumed it was already pretty well-known that the Dragon Queen and everybody of her lineage is immortal or, at least, very long lived.

Ehhhh ?Whaaaaat..!!!" And then she faints. Oh i wanna see the reaction if this happens somewhere in the future.Oh i imagine too much lol.

  35. We cannot change what is. I pray yen press will handle the release well, despite people's fears. Just remember, money talks. The more people who buy the releases as they appear, the more motivation yen press has to continue publishing volumes. So please dear fans, when the time comes, support your beloved author by buying volumes legally. And, ensure the continued survival of an English translated overlord by giving yen press the profits to prove how much we love it. You may not like the idea, but that is the kind of world we live in. If people do not buy the volumes. "English" overlord will die. What company would work to publish something at a loss to themselves.

    2. I don't see it that way. Its a simple matter of profit motivation. Many might not see it, you might buy all the volumes of some series that still gets shut down and you wonder why.... But companies everywhere are pretty much all about the bottom line. Its a numbers game, and they look at a larger demographic than just one passionate fan. A company might withhold their product for a time due to many hidden factors whether it is ironing out all that is required for international legal co-operation, consumer manipulation, gathering appropriate staff.... But money moves the world. As long as a business makes enough money not to go under in this economy, and they see that one of their products might gross for them a healthy profit based on sales data and statistics, it would be almost suicidal not to take advantage of it. Though this world has seen its share of stupid CEO's I grant you.....

  36. Hello everyone ! I started reading overlord 3 weeks ago, took me about this time to read everything ^^
    I have seen in the comments that the light novel was bought by Yenpress... Does it mean that the future volume of Overlord won't be translated here ? :(
    If Yenpress is an american company, allowing the translation to be seen from other countries and not from America would maybe allow you to continue the translation (and for my american fellows, you can use some free vpn :p)
    I am french and i think that this novel should be more well-known ! Even though i have almost no friends who can read english as I do...

    1. Of course the translation team has all my thanks to have made me a real junkie of the overlord light novel...
      If there is a web official serialization i will purchase it, but if i have to wait 5-6 years to get the volume 10... i'd rather get it for free on illegal websites :(
      Maybe you can continue to translate it and propose it on download on torrent websites and such ~
      AAAhhh knowing there will be no more Overlord pains me a lot atm x)

    2. I don't want to leech, but making me wait 4 years to read the next volume legally effectively kills this series for me. How likely is there going to be continued translations by those in another country?

    3. If can get my hands on physical volumes in france i'll buy them even though i've already read it on the internet ^^ but if i get frustrated i guess i won't... Anyways in france we'll get the volumes 5 more years after america lol so... => skythewood translation, i'm really counting on you, I hope everyone can find a way to continue pleasing the fans !

    3. I bet he guessed it would be the last to be translated since it will be licenced by yenpress ;)
      i hope the 2.5 more chapters will be translated ^^

  38. Oh man we're getting close to the end of the current content and likely we won't see volume 10 come out before the translation stops.

    Its been a great ride,too bad it will end like this :(

  39. Wouldn't keeping a 3 volume cap be enough ? we pull out the translation when the volume is out, so we don't have to wait too much, pple can contribute to author-san and yenpress and we have our fan release

    everybody's happy right ?

    1. Sadly it´s not that simple,if Yen Press found out that the fan translation was still going they might try to shut the whole website down and there might be some consequences to the team itself too,if someone would continue fan translating the LN they would have to be very careful to avoid attracting attention to themselves.

    2. Then simply send maybe some pm to ppl interested with links to some random websites and on one of them post translations titeled "I don't know what it is but i translated it" and even gogle god won't be able to find it... :P maybe post as image :O then nothing will be able to find it even with fragments of translations?

  40. I'm not waiting 5 years to catch up to what I already read. I'll buy the original novels and translate them with Google before doing that so some lazy ass company can milk me for money and give the author a percentage. I'd rather just buy the novels direct. prguy318@yahoo.com, I have tons of money and I don't give a shit. Email me if you know how to translate this shit and I'll provide the raws.
