Evil God Average / Evil God Average Jashin Average – 12
I’m surprised that nobody has criticised me yet for trying to sell expensive bear drawings. Could it be that I rooted out all the humourless people with that 200USD half-chapter thing? Or is it just that my bear pictures are unexpectedly good?
After driving out the survey team-looking people, starting from two days later, the number of intruders suddenly jumped up. On a normal day, 3~5 parties will come to raid us. And because I got fed up with hearing the alarm each time, I changed the settings so that it would only ring once they reached the 4th floor.
At the moment, 80% of the intruders are defeated on the 1st floor, and most of the remainders fall on the 2nd. The only party that made it to the 3rd floor was the survey team from the other day who had come to challenge it again, and nobody reached the 4th floor.
『G-, God dammit… To… in a place, like this…』
Also, regarding observing through the dungeon core, it needs quite a bit of mana, but I managed to reform it so that I could hear sounds too.
The result was that I found out the reason that the survey team ‘s pace suddenly got worse on the 2nd floor. Apparently there’s miasma floating in this dungeon. Certainly now that you mention it, I do get the vague feeling that that word was mixed in amongst the attributes for the dungeon, but I want to believe that in the end it’s just the characteristic of the dungeon and not something that’s my fault. ‘Miasma’ or whatever kind of sounds stinky, so I’m absolutely denying it.
『What a sinister dungeon. The dungeon master has gotta be a pretty dangerous guy.』
『Yeah, we gotta brace ourselves.』
By the way, based on what I heard while eavesdropping on them, there are apparently lots of different types of miasma, but the miasma in this dungeon doesn’t do physical harm like a poison, but apparently has an effect on your mental state. Speaking simply, it amplifies fear, and is a troublesome thing because although this dungeon is one that you need to progress through really carefully even at best of times, the miasma increases your mentral strain right away. In the end it’s just a mental effect and can’t do anything to you physically, so apparently you’ll be alright as long as you keep yourself together, but the act of bracing yourself in itself brings about mental strain, so it’s a nasty one.
『Kuh-, the miasma is too thick! It’ll get dangerous if we go any further!』
『We’re only on the 2nd floor yanno!? If it’s like this on such a high level, just how terrible are the lower levels!?』
Perhaps as an effect of being linked to the exit, the miasma is thin enough that there’s almost no effect, but in comparison to this, the 2nd floor and below has thicker miasma by the level.
No, no, the Evil God Aura is supposed to have a weak effect on humans, so it’s probably something else. That’s why I’m not in the wrong.
Proportional to the amount of invading adventurers, the amount of collected items have increased too. Honestly speaking, it’s taking quite a bit of time to sort the items that were collected. Even at a glance there seem to be some things I didn’t really understand mixed in there, so I had to throw them into the item box and check the name… and after I did all this, it ended up taking a surprising amount of time.
I should have told them just to collect the gold. I’m sick of seeing swords already.
『Aah… I’m done, my consciousness… A-, All I want… just my sword… this sword that took me two years of saving up for, can’t…』
And so, I’ve decided to try putting them in treasure chests.
In my case, I throw in nothing but unnecessary things like weapons, so it’s almost used like garbage collection though.
Also, I wasn’t really sure about having only these unneeded consolation prizes, so for roughly every ten, I’d mix in one with enchantment. They might be cursed, but looking at just my tantou, the stats should be good.
『T-, This sword is!?』
『We’d better report this to the church, or else, huh?』
“I am back, Anri-sama.”
Tena had returned from selling things in the city.
Of course, since I can’t say that she’ll be absolutely fine in town, I instructed her to buy a robe for herself to use in town, and not show her face too much.
“I have put the ingredients I bought in the food storeroom.”
“Thanks. And so, how about the thing I asked for?”
“Yes, please have a look at this.”
I asked Tena in an indirect manner like that, to go have a look and see how the Adventurers Guild was treating this dungeon, while she was out shopping. When I asked her about the result, she presented me one sheet of parchment.
This was written on it:
Request: Suppress the dungeon master of the new dungeon south of Riemel, the “Wicked Cave of the Robber”
Requirements: Present the dungeon core
Time Limit: None
“Wicked Cave of the Robber?”
Did they discover some other new dungeon?
“It seems that the Adventurers Guild has named this dungeon as such.”
Wai-, they’re talking about this dungeon? Thinking about it, neither the adventurers nor the guild have any way of knowing the official name of this dungeon, so if you had to ask if it was obvious that they’d give it its own name, then yeah, it’s obvious I guess.
