Dungeon Defense: Volume 4 – Prologue

You are me.









Please do not read Dungeon Defense on a site besides my own, shalvationtranslation.wordpress. There are sites that take my translations without permission and also take ad revenue. If you even remotely respect the author or the translator, then please don’t read on these third party sites. 

TL Note: Welcome to the start of volume 4. This is possibly the shortest volume in the series, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive than the other volumes. It was an amazing read through with a lot of twists and revelations. There’s actually a LOT of bants in this volume so look forward to those, since I’ll be looking forward to translating those lines.

This volume might actually take me longer to translate since the format is rather complex in places. Like how this entire prologue was in black pages in contrast to the white pages. Between each chapter, there’ll be these black page segments, so I’ll need to figure out how I’ll portray this to you guys properly.
I also didn’t expect each image to stick right next to each other, so I had to manually put a space between each page. If I didn’t, then you’d see these unnatural gaps in between the lines. By manually spacing it, you guys can tell where the page ends and where the next page starts. I’ll make the next black page section a bit different and see how you guys like that. After that, I’ll ask which format you guys prefer.

I apologize to those of you who have the tendency of copying and pasting certain lines to threads or forums. Only the black page sections will be like this, so please bear with it.

    1. I apologize, but there’s nothing I can do about it. Read the TL note. These are supposed to be in black pages and I wanted to be able to properly depict that for you guys. You’re acting like this is the end of the world when you can easily just type the lines out yourself on google translate or something. (I literally translate straight out of my book. I can’t copy and paste this even if I wanted to. So you aren’t in a good position to complain.)

      1. That’s understandable. I personally love the look, but sad I cannot paste it into word (or any text type document, be it PDF, EPUB, txt, or more) as while I do read everything myself at least once (more than once in the case of Dungeon Defense), I cannot read it while at work. I have however set up programs with the super voice pack to read books out loud to me as if they are an e-book (only thing it doesn’t do right is sound effects (onomatopoeia) which come out silly, and it doesn’t yell when there is an exclamation point, but other than that it does vary well). It’s nice that while I program all day, I can listen to one, one and a half novels worth a day. Anywho, I guess I’ll have to type this all up in text at a later date for when I want to go through the series at work beyond book 3 (unless you release a text version of it later (PDF’s can be in black with white text on specific (or all) pages while still being text by the way. Take the Black Edition versions of Overlord, fan done just like that).


      2. I added screenshots for the two different editors that I have found at wordpress. You should notice that they have at the top right corner of the editor an option for visual or text/html. You select the second, you add the code, you click the visual to see if everything works fine and publish. It doesn’t work at comments of course. If you want I can make a photoguide for you. Or you can also send me a screenshot of your editor if it’s different from mine. PS: If you go at https://shalvationtranslations.wordpress.com/wp-admin/ (you and only you can access it) you should see the interface at my second screenshot.


  1. seems like I can expect a lot from this volume. Can’t wait as I love reading books with interesting writing styles and formats. Thanks for translating! Off to re-read the other volumes now.


  2. Well great I was hoping to read not wait for images that will never load, thanks a lot shitty internet provider.


  3. Thank you very much shalvation sama you surely have saved us plebs


    Shalvation sama I “wish” (not complain so please show mercy to this pleb) the pic is just 1 large one so you just scroll down and not wait for the pic to load.. (Since it would take more mb on data huhu.. Screw us slow internet users)


  4. Thank you, thank you. I love this series so much. The black pages are a bit weird, but the effect is kinda cool for these segments.


  5. Woot Woot!
    Laura making her history
    Those pesky nobles, i am quite glad that feudalism been abolish. It still somehow exist in part of the world.
    Rise up peasant take your authority and carve your name in history!!
    TY for translation


  6. Woot, white text in black paper… The paperback novel is somehow experimental?
    What is the black pages signified? is it highlighting the dark, crude, or sinister part in the story?


    1. I think page is about rumors spread by pesky nobles, human commanders and etc defeated by Laura. It has been shown Dantalian speech still effective due some peasant have surrendered peacefully and some could have join ranks in Laura’s army.

      Hopefully in next chapter it will show Laura’s battle and Lapis. Dantalian is freaking badass in this chapter.

  7. I’m so excited!! Laura gathered some nasty rep from those shity nobles. Well, no matter, they’ll soon die horribly! Thank you for the chapter!


  8. tbh i like this new layout. although i cant bookmark it by highlighting the text, big woop. its not the end of the world. i feel more content at the fact that shady counterfeit sites will have a harder time stealing this. if they do, let those fools waste their own time. i just hope other translation sites do the same thing. THANKS AGAIN SHALVATION!


  9. Mate, I’m thankful for the TL, but I’d like to point out that you can just change your css to represent the difference in style. That’s what it’s for. The current way doesn’t easily scale to various screen sizes, which is a particular problem for phone browsing.

    1. Tilt your phone to landscape. Problem solved.
      I’ve already said this SEVERAL TIMES another benefit of making it like that is that it prevents those translation theft site from taking my work.
