PLOT SUMMARY

As the war against the orc lord rages on, Gelmud the majin appears and attempts to intimidate Rimuru. Gelmud is Furi- ous chat the ore lord is not yet a Demon Lord, and demands that he devour Gabiru the lizardman to hasten the process. Instead, the orc lord eats Gelmud himself to complete his transformation into the dreaded Orc Disaster, who pos- sesses the ability to corrode anything he touches. Rimuru Paces this great Foe, and with the help of his trusty Great Sage, he deFeats the Orc Disaster and brings back peace to the Forest. This leads to the Formation of the Jura Forest Alliance, with Rimuru at its head, resulting in the birth oF anew city with a population oF over 10,000 monsters.

A LITTLE GIFT THAT GELMUD LEFT BEHIND.

IT SEEMS SAFE TO ASSUME THE ORC
