Naofumi went on a task to deliver herbicide on a village who was overrun by vines that turn into monsters. The village was ravaged by famine when the Spear Hero visited and gave them a miracle seed that quickly grew plants and bore fruits. However, the plants grew too much that it overwhelmed the entire village. Naofumi agreed to help the villagers even though he didn’t like the idea of cleaning up Motoyasu’s mess. With the help of Filo and Rapthalia, they exterminate the monsters on the plants and save the village from further famine.
At a hot springs town a few days later, Raphtalia and Filo decided to give Naofumi a rare egg and a crystal as a token of gratitude. Their plan didn’t work as a silver razor back destroy the nest where the rare items lay. In the end, they went back to town trading the wild boar for a special tool for Naofumi’s gem works instead.
