I’ve changed my job from Sage to Thief C65: Phantom Thief Shadow Elimination Plan (3)
That night, the thief Shadow snuck into the mansion of Rowdy Sandalon. The mansion was quiet, and there was hardly a hint of human presence.
“……Strange. It’s just too quiet.”
I had sent a notice to the mansion in advance. Naturally, I expected a large number of guards to be waiting for me, but I was completely unprepared.
“This looks like a full-blown trap…….Now let’s see what’s in store for me.”
Stepping over the fence of the mansion, Shadow made his way through the garden with cautious steps. There did not seem to be any booby traps.
“Hello, you’ve come a long way, Phantom Thief Shadow.”
Just as I was about to reach the mansion, a voice suddenly rang out. I turned in the direction of the voice and saw an old man there.
“Thank you for coming all this way! I hope you enjoy my hospitality!”
Shadow immediately activated his magic. Second rank magic [Fireball]. A ball of fire the size of a soccer ball headed toward the old man with great force.
“There’s no point in doing that!”
“……So it’s an illusion.”
“How dare you! This is the magic item that I have developed, the Remote Illusion! It’s a magic item that allows me to project myself as a three-dimensional image and even deliver my voice through a device embedded beneath the ground.”
“I’ve seen something similar in the labyrinths of the school. So, you’re Rowdy Sandalwood, right?”
Shadow asked, and the old man grinned and nodded.
“Yes, indeed! I am the greatest inventor of the century, Rowdy Sandalwood. I am also the world’s Greatest Sage in the study of magic items.”
Shadow’s lips twisted sarcastically. It is true that the 3D image in front of him is a great achievement, but humanity is greatly inferior to the demon race in the development of magic items. This is evident from the various problems that have arisen in the world due to the proliferation of items from the demon country.
“I will overtake the inferior race of demons in no time!”
“What are you doing luring me out here? You didn’t want to show off your magic items, did you?”
“Nope…….Of course not!”
Rowdy laughed in amusement and snapped his fingers.
“Phantom Thief Shadow, you’ll be my test subject for a magic item I’ve developed!”
“How long can a great thief of the Sage class stand against my masterpiece?”
A magic circle appears in the garden of the house. It’s a magic circle of “transference” that I’ve seen before. What emerged from the flickering light was……
The missing female knight, Matilda Marstofoy.
