Volume 3: Intermission – Lost History I
—Once upon a time, during the Age of the Warlords, also known as the Age of the Great War of Supremacy, were many people. In that age, humans, monsters, demihumans, and gods painted the world.
The humans who sought to expand their territories and make grander their hegemony.
The goblins, orcs, and kobolds who sought to overturn the humans’ supremacy from the borders.
The demihumans who were once driven away by the humans.
It was to these creatures that the gods’ expectations were placed, and it was they who welcomed an age of great chaos.
This is an excerpt of some of the documents of that age.
According to a traveling grandma, this is something the Goblin King himself wrote. As for whether that’s actually true or not, who knows?
To begin with, just when did the Goblin King acquire this information? It’s simply too suspicious. If she speaks the truth, then this could be considered a historical discovery.

Goblin and monster evolution tree.
Leader Type Normal => rare => Noble => Duke => Lord => King => ?
Direct Vassal Type Normal => rare => Noble => Knight => Baron => ?
Druid Type Normal => Druid => Shaman => ?
Beast Type Baby => Adult Beast => Wild Beast => ?
Tamed Type Baby => Twin-Heads => Three Heads => ?
Kobold Type Normal => High Kobold => Rook Kobold => ?
Orc Type Normal => Orc Leader => Orc King => ?
Starting with the Goblin King, a person with experience in leading a horde will become a leader type, while a goblin with no experience in leading a horde who was born under the rule of the Goblin King will most likely become a direct vassal. These two types are greatly compatible with each other, such that there are cases when a god’s blessing or one’s experiences in life causes one to jump from one path to another.
Gi Za is of the druid type. He has no compatibly with the leader type or the vassal type. It could be said that the evolutionary path he follows is unique.
Wild beasts like Cynthia follow the beast type path. That’s a different path compared to the one walked by Gi Gi’s tamed beasts.
The details are yet unknown. It could have something to do with the personality of the beasts or perhaps their food. Maybe it’s the goblin skills themselves having an effect on them. In any case, it’s still a mystery.
As for the kobolds, there hasn’t been any sighting of evolved forms other than Hasu’s, so there’s not much info here either.
As for the orcs, it’s also a mystery due to Bui keeping things under wraps.
Demihuman Type UNKNOWN
God Type UNKNOWN
They keep the information to themselves, so there’s nothing to write.
Human and human-like class system.
Warrior Job Apprentice Warrior => Adept Warrior => Master Warrior => UNKNOWN
Magician Job Apprentice Mage => Adept Mage => Master Mage => UNKNOWN
Healer Job Apprentice Mage => Adept Healer => UNKNOWN
Adventurer Job Apprentice Adventurer => Adept Adventurer => Master Adventurer => UNKNOWN
Knight Job Apprentice Knight => Adept Knight => Master Knight => Holy Knight (Preparatory) => Holy Knight
There is much to be learned regarding the humans and the humans-like classes. All the class systems changes job depending on the divine protection received, so the system listed above is really nothing more than an example.
For example, a human following the warrior job will eventually find himself unable to proceed any further unless he receives the divine protection of a god, but after receiving one, the variations are endless. The same could be said for the magician-job and the healer-job.
In the adventurer-job, one can be promoted above the master stage without any divine protection, but the job itself requires the skills to survive in the world, so most adventurers receive a divine protection before reaching the master stage.
The knight job branched out from the warrior job because of the conferring of decorations, and is independent of the warrior job.
