~3rd Person Perspective~
At the time before the beginning of winter.
“What!? Is that true!?” (Adventurer)
The members of the Ispeppu Village Warriors heard information that they could not believe at first.
The dungeon in Aluppo had been conquered and disappeared.
The Ispeppu Village Warriors are a party of adventurers based in the village of Ispeppu, located within Count Sariol’s domain in the Kingdom of Zantz, and are responsible for the security of the village. The members of the group are not heirs to the village, and they do not usually leave the village. However, during the winter months, when monster attacks are rare, they are out of work, and it is customary for them to go to other towns to work. And in Ispeppu village, it has long been the norm to go to Aluppo dungeon in winter, and the idea of going somewhere else has never existed in anyone’s mind, not even in the corner of their mind.
“Calm down. This is a fact. The other day, indeed, the dungeon in Aluppo disappeared. This guild has already confirmed it.” (Receptionist)
“That can’t…” (Adventurer)
If the receptionist says so, he has no choice but to believe her.
But the disappearance of the dungeon in Aluppo was beyond their imagination, and they had no idea what to do next.
“What are we going to do, huh?! We can’t just go look for another one now!” (Adventurer)
“That’s why I told you! We need to move faster, not play around!!” (Adventurer)
The other party members shout. But nobody can come up with a better idea.
“Damn it! Who are the ones that cleared Aluppo’s dungeon?” (Adventurer)
The leader shouted, slamming the counter table in frustration.
So, the three of them, unable to come up with an answer, moved to the bar and began discussing over a few glasses of wine, which they had no time for.
“What should we do?” (Adventurer)
“No matter what we do, we’ve already decided where we can go from now on.” (Adventurer)
“Do I stay here or go back to the village or go to the capital…?” (Adventurer)
Then everyone’s words stopped.
After a moment of silence, one of them spoke up.
“I don’t like it. I don’t want to go to the Royal Capital.” (Adventurer)
“Yeah, I don’t want to go to the Royal Capital, either. The things are too expensive.” (Adventurer)
“What are we going to do then? We can’t make any money here, and back in the village, we’ll be quite the embarrassment. Right?” (Adventurer)
Everyone was silent again.
They all knew that they had no choice.
After drinking that day at the bar, the three of them headed for the Royal Capital on the first horse-drawn carriage the next day.
The three of them arrived at the Royal Capital with some difficulty and were surprised by the number of people, surprised by the high prices, and even more surprised by the number of adventurers, and began gathering information at the Adventurers’ Guild.
“Do you mind if I ask? Do you know of any cheap lodging? I just came out here, so I don’t really know what’s going on.” (Adventurer)
“I don’t know. It’s going to be expensive everywhere this year. There’s going to be a lot of adventurers coming from the surrounding area.” (Receptionist)
“Is that so?” (Adventurer)
“This year is the most expensive ever. If you can’t afford it, you’ll have to find an empty house in the slum.” (Receptionist)
So, they gave up on staying at a hotel and decided to look for an empty house in the slum.
