Chapter 8 – Let’s listen to some information!
Side: Herge Lau Rochelle
The door closed in front of my eyes. I heard the footsteps go farther away.
[A dungeon master? That can’t be]
I murmered by myself.
He introduced himself as “Dungeon Adminstrator”.
But, with the current situations, he…Yuki-san wouldn’t tell us a lie.
I was sheltered? insde a dungeon, and there I encountered supposed vile creatures who were especially hated by women, goblins.
Those goblins took us here without hurting us.
[Oriel, do you believe Yuki-san when he said that he was a dungeon master?]
[With the current situation, I don’t think he would lie but I also think he didn’t tell use the truth.]
[I also agree with that…]
[Yes, he, Yuki wasn’t it, I still can’t make a judgement on our circumstances. Even though I said that, Yuki did treat us and therefore kept true his word]
Oriel frowned as she recalled what she had said before.
[Orield, as I thought, you…]
[Yes, I’m very sorry. Not as far as killing but I thought we should take take control of the situation.]
I can’t say that I don’t understand her feelings. We don’t know what the opponent’s expectations were as he put us under his protection. But, Yuki-san at the moment is keeping his word.
We, who were suffering after being turned into slaves, were freed by him after all.
[I don’t know what will happen from now on but as long as there is no harm that could come upon us, we will not interact with Yuki-san with hostility of violence.
[Yes, I accept. But, Assigned Guardian…the act itself seems to already have been sealed. After I was healed, I tried to hit him but I couldn’t.]
Oriel’s dedication is something I’m thankful for but this time it went too far. Right now he’s done nothing wrong. In fact, he not only treated us but also freed us from the slavery collars. Normally you would thank someone by bowing your head even if they were a dungeon master.
[Tommorow, it seems we will have a chance to speak more. We have to properly apologize and give thanks Oriel.]
[…I am unable to promise that. For me, Herge-sama’s safety takes priority.]
I lectured Oriel until it was time for a meal.
Side: Kasuya Torino Alias: Yuki For the time being the protagonist (lol)
Well first lets proceed with the women’s story. The guys also had various things happen but, well they were lacking in ability so I left them out. The next time I come up with something I will talk with them.
After all, that day I told them that I would talk with the tommorow and went back to my room.
Right now its 8:00 a.m.: Like always I woke up to my cell phone alarm.
The first day I doubted that I had actually come to another world but human adapt fast. Right away, I opened the map and made sure that nothing was strange. Well, even if there was something wrong with the dungeon or there was an invasion the alarm would sound. But after all, I still worry about things.
Oh, It increased more than I thought. The three guys I captured yesterday in the dungeon didn’t have the guardianship apply to them so every hour their MP was absorbed and changed to DP. The women too weren’t put under the guardianship immmediately so they too gave the dungeon about 1-2 hrs worth of MP.
If there’s a light battle or a battle without any humans, then I’m not to be alerted when I’m sleeping as long its judged that it can be handled properly.
Well, disregarding that, if I think about it, every hour 1% of the MP of the prisoners is absorbed.
Having prisoners with MP in the thousands is indeed delicious.
Let me think about using this path later…For now. lets eat breakfast quickly and get information from the two girls.
After eating my fill, I went to their room with a notepad and a ballpen since ofcourse a PC would only cause confusion.
I could’ve bought a map with the “Soko Hore Wan Wan” but it was a whopping 10,000 DP.
Thinking about various things, I arrived where the girls were.
[Good morning. How are you feeling today?]
[Thank you for asking. We feel fine.]
[Is that so, Miss Oriel was it, are you also alright?]
[Ah, there’s no problem…Yesterday, I was impolite. Because of the circumstances I was overly antagonistic.]
Oriel apologized a little awkwardly.
[No, Please don’t mind. So, about our discussion…is it fine for you to give some information?]
[Yes, we don’t mind. But, Yuki-san are you really a dungeon master. We aren’t doubting you but you are completely different from the stories we have heard about dungeon masters.]
[Please excuse me but I don’t understand what those dungeon masters that Herge-sama speaks of are like]
[What do you mean by that?]
[Please wait a second, I don’t mind if you speak normally. (he was speaking formally the whole time)]
[If that is so, I will take take you up on that offer. When I woke up I was suddenly made a manager of this dungeon or as you would say master.]
After that I started telling them a story built on lies. I didn’t know what the name of this continent was, and the place where I was from didn’t have dungeons. Before I came to live in this dungeon, I was a normal person living in a city. (In a way he’s not lying)
But, I intuitively understood that I was connected with the dungeon core here and that if anything happened to it, something bad would also happen to me. Although I lost my bearings, for the time being I protected this dungeon while trying to find people to talk to…
I guess it just kept coming out. Well most of it wasn’t a lie just with slight differences in meaning.
[So that’s what happened, Something like that]
[Ah, you might not believe me but please understand. I was also confused in the begining.]
[No, I trust Yuki-san’s actions. What do you think Oriel?]
[It makes sense. Besides there’s no point in deceiving us here.]
[Alright, well is it alright if I ask you a few things.]
[Yes no problem.]
And so, I asked about the information that I needed right now.
From now on, I started recording the question and anwer in a itemized list.
Dungeon administrator…Called Dungeon Master…When a dungeon is finished, a suppression party is immediately dispatched, It becomes a place for surveillance by adventurers and a familiar training ground for knights. The dungeon is also dangerous and the only safe place in a dungeon would be where the core is located. If the monsters are strong enough to be used as training partners then the dungeon isn’t captured immediately.
Also, a dungeon that has a dungeon master like me, is assigned the highest of level of danger, It’s been recorded up to now that 12 of these were found. Each time one was found, the country would send a company made up of its imperial guard to subjugate it. But in 2 instances there were dungeons that were strong enough to swallow a Maoh (demon king) and a powerful country back in those days.
A hero…as I thought they seem to exist, there seem to be heroes that rise from people of this world and that there have been a number of these heroes that have lived and died in these world. But even among them the heroes that come from another world are granted extraordinarily powerful skills suited for combat. Shit, after all they have other world summoning here.
Maoh….that too is according to the template. The king that rules the demons (mazoku) and apparitions (mamono). Well my definition is vague so I attached the definitions of this world. Well like there would be demon king who would just come out and say “show me your skills, ore ga maoh da (i am the demon king)”. Right now there seem to be two Demon kings on this continent. I will think of their names if I ever meet them.
Regarding this continent…I can’t understand its size based just on the conversation but the current location the dungeon is at is part of the country of Rochelle. 15 km from here there seems to be a city. “Shit! Isn’t 15 km too close?” I panicked thinking that but I guess this is a different world. There are no cars in this world and travel is by horses. Also outside the city there are a lot of mamono so travel is made more difficult. I guess Luna was right in situating me in this location.
Regarding the country of Rochelle…It’s said to be one of the five top nations in the continent. It said to be extremely powerful country that’s not looked down upon by others. Right now its in the middle of a struggle with another country with regards to territory. I felt that there was some exageration since in front of me there was the country’s princess.
I don’t know if she would tell me the situation regarding the country’s defence but when I asked her the population of the capital she gave the answer easily. [200,000 people reside in the flourishing capital and with benevolent king will continue to increase.]
200,000 people huh…As I thought, its the level of medieval Europe.
In regards to currency…it moves by the 10 incremental rule which helps me out a lot.
1 gold coin can support a family of four for a month. Also the denominations (unit) are [Foru/Folu]
Regarding race…Like Luna said, those with animal ears attached are the beast race, the elves, the human race, and there are also those who are halves.
Well I recieved various information from them, gradually as I thought that I was getting hungry, it became 12 o’clock in the afternoon.
[Sorry for taking such a long time. Shall I prepare lunch?]
