    Description
    Heal, the prince of the kingdom of Sanfaris was born with the unfortunate crest of ‘Cave King.’

    Because of this crest, he was relegated to being lord of a remote island by his father the king.

    Of course, there were no people there, and no trees or plants. It was an island with just a single cave.

    However, the moment that Heal picked up the pickaxe inside of the cave, the ‘Cave King’ crest was activated. Its effect was specializing in mining, allowing you to efficiently mine all kinds of ore.

    Among the ore that could be mined on the island, there was ore that increased your magic and even ore that extended your lifespan…

    Heal would become so engrossed in mining, that he would eventually create the strongest country.

    She was a goblin.
    The premise was good, but the story become repetitive later on. Though if you like Slice of Life, then it shouldn't be a bother anyway.:blobuwu:

    From the first chapter, if they know the name of the crest and that is has king in its name I do not see how they never bothered testing him activities related to caves to see if anything activated and what his crest could do. Mining should be the first activity that they tested him on, not sending him off to starve to death. The manga ch 1 that was translated seems to indicate that this was fixed there (and likely the LN) by having them not know its name.

    His family are still huge jerks and deserve a karmic smack down.
    What about the dog?

    He's a Kobold royalty that was stranded into his island. He's raising him as his foster parent along with that evolved-goblin woman in the picture.

    The slime is a spare body of an ancient empress that once rule over the region around the island before they were wiped out about a thousand years ago by massive meteor. Her real body is in the ruin under that island.
    Yes, it's a woman. I swear this novel gonna be a harem, isn't it…

    The chapters are getting longer... It was also kind of funny how annoyed people are getting over nothing.

    So I just finished chapter 1 and I was thinking about motivations. I can an understand the other brothers? but the father sending him out like this? Is it possible that the supposed divine revelation is real and the father needed a way to get his son away from his more ruthless and greedy brothers? I assume it's better for the sisters as there would be no threat to their lives from their brothers as they would just be married off to others. but if you think about it, you have all these children and one is uniquely weaker than the others? in a situation where the rest of the boys are described as greedy and whatnot? my guess is the dad is actually trying to protect him. wonder what happened to his mom though.

    If pops wanted to protect him, there are much better ways then banishment to a desolate island where his only hope of surviving is to be picked up by foreign merchants, or slavers.

    The oracle might be real, but more likely is a fake and they were getting rid of the embarrassment of a son.

    The king likely never bonded with him, and only raised the MC as an obligation to not lose face. Not every father is a good father and some only care about results.

    I can't get over the protagonist's name.
    Is it really. "Heal"?
    Maybe the author meant Heath.

    The manga translators have been using Hiel. But the manga translators who (delibratly) miss-translate or change names is not 0
    Chrome's MTL is consistent with Heal though. including the manga's web page and amazon's listing for the LN.

    It is annoying, this is why I don't read Japanese novels
    Even some Chinese novels use feminine names for male characters
    Eg Samantha for a dude

    I think in this occasion it was deliberate though. In the manga there is even a line of "My son Hiel... you must heal this land." I feel like this was on purpose, especially if the name was meant to be Heal.

    Are you searching using the name in Roman characters or Hiragana/Katakana/Kanji?

    If you want to find the raws, you need to use the character sets the site you are searching for uses, not your own.

    You would mostly see "ヒール" in Japan used when they mean 'heel' as in villain. And then of course gamers would see it as 'heal.'
    Hiel is what? German for heel? Given the plot, 'heal' seemed like it was the most appropriate. But you never know with some authors...
