I gazed blankly at the black fog that was evidence of Gan Ceann, who has now drifted away.
“It was the strongest enemy so far.” (Kei)
“Yup. The location was bad, but it was also the most powerful. Of all the battles we’ve fought and won.” (Haru)
Haru was right, the strongest monster we had ever met was none other than Rimdobmur. But if you don’t count the outlandish ones that can’t even be fought, I’d say this one is the strongest.
“By the way, how about drop items?” (Haru)
Hearing Haru’s words, I looked at the place where Gan Ceann had died and found a few dropped items. I think there are a lot of them this time.
“I’m not sure if it’s the fact that he was treated like a boss that’s causing so many drops?” (Kei)
“Maybe it’s a reward from the dungeon for killing the error…” (Haru)
We wasted no time in sorting through the items and Haru took a look at them.
The first one,
The item pouch he had been using was a small pouch, so it must have gotten a step larger. It’s now 10 tons, compared to the previous one’s 1 ton. I can now carry a car easily.
I think I’ll manage this one at home. Since Haru doesn’t like to carry luggage, she’ll carry the one-ton item pouch and I’ll carry the ten-ton one.
Then the second one. Or rather, the second and third.
There were two. The shape is that of a friendship bracelet. [T/N: Misanga or ミサンガ are braided bracelets given for good luck or as a sign of friendship. Google-sensei has pictures of this.]
“Hmm, I wonder if I should put it on my arm. It’s not an ordinary item, so if I try to channel magical power, oh? Brother, it shrank. It fits perfectly on my wrist.” (Haru)
There was something like that. By the way, I think that is the effect of one of the attached skills, so Haru uses the [Inspection] on the skills.
I have no idea, but I don’t think people can learn item-only skills.
Well, as the word says.
I guess this is the result of Haru’s testing earlier.
I also put it through my right hand and let the magic flow through it to make it the perfect size. It’s not a problem, but it’s not a hindrance, and it’s not too tight either.
Now, it was time for the fourth one.
I thought the fourth one would be an ordinary magic stone, but apparently, it is not.
Well, it just saves magical power. It’s great, and it seems that it can be taken out.
Haru uses more magical power than I do, so I’ll give this to Haru.
Currently, our magical power is almost empty, so we didn’t proceed with the experiment.
And the fifth. The fifth was a sticker. Or maybe it’s a tattoo rather than a sticker?
Is [Spatial Awareness] able to increase the density of information further and the accuracy is improved compared to [Perception] that I already have? I got it because I’m stronger in close combat.
I put it on the back of my left hand, waited a minute, and it disappeared like a flash.
I don’t feel anything when I touch it. I don’t think it’s there, but I wonder if it’s the kind of thing you can’t find if you forget where you put it.
And finally. The most problematic one that I tried not to look at. A sword without a scabbard.
“Spirit Sword of the Paladin…? It’s a holy sword, and adds holy attributes to slashes: it can only be used by those with Sword Proficiency [Sword of Faith].”
“Brother, what are we going to do? It came to us like the companion of that staff at that time. If you look closely, you’ll also see a flat magic circle on it.” (Haru)
“Really, what are we going to do? It’s too powerful for us to sell.” (Kei)
“What should we do? Donate it?” (Haru)
“To the Hero Party? It would be bad if we were exposed that we were here.” (Kei)
“Yeah, but, huh? Brother, four people are approaching. They seem to be quite cautious. They’re coming very slowly.” (Haru)
“Oh, so we’ll ask them?” (Kei)
“Yeah, that’s the idea.” (Haru)
We smiled wickedly and carefully polished the parts we had touched. I forgot to do this with the wand, but I don’t want to get fingerprints on it.
Then, since my right hand was stuck, I held the sword in my left hand and lifted it upward with the tip pointing downward.
I’m going to use a little bit of magic to give myself a little bit of power.
I thrust it into the ground as hard as I could. As a matter of course, the ground of the dungeon was hard, and it was firmly buried as it made the sound of the ground and the sword collide with each other.
“Okay, Haru, can you get it out?” (Kei)
“I’ll try it. Hmm, it’s impossible.” (Haru)
Haru grabbed the hilt of the sword and pulled on it, but it wouldn’t come off.
It seems that the people who were coming toward us heard the sound of the sword stabbing the ground, and the signs of them coming here are getting faster. We’ll meet them in a dozen seconds.
“Then, do you want to go home?” (Kei)
We descended to the tenth level, activating [Stealth] again, and used the transition back.
“By the way, brother.” (Haru)
“Does your right arm hurt?” (Haru)
“Oh, that reminds me.” (Kei)
Because of the adrenaline, I had forgotten about the pain, but now I remembered it and I went straight to the hospital with tears in my eyes.
More than ten days later, we were standing in the dungeon market with my right arm wrapped in a bandage.
It seems that after we left, the sword was safely found and handed over to the hero. I saw on the internet news that it was handed over to a craftsman who made a scabbard for it.
Then the Dungeon Market.
With the fall of Gan Ceann explorers who were looking forward to being able to use the dungeons resumed their activities at once, and the economy in the market must be running well.
Furthermore, even many magic items, regardless of their strong or weak effects, began to circulate, and there were even auctions being held.
It is still fresh in my mind that an item pouch (very small) that can hold up to 100 kilograms easily exceeded 10 million yen.
Unfortunately, we were not the ones who sold it. We have the (small) and (medium) item pouches, but not the (very small) ones.
However, we have items that we have been collecting for a long time without item pouches. Or rather, I have made them.
This is a sword that was dropped by a unique monster in the 8th layer of the Kizaki family dungeon. It’s cool, but of course, the material is weak. That’s why Haru and I modified it.
Simply put, we used [Alchemy] to combine an ax’s skill into a sword. This alone made it very strong. I thought about preparing something else to sell, but I couldn’t stand the thought of being spotted, so I left it at that.
Of course, it has the [Strong Slash] skill in it.
When we put it up for auction anonymously, most of the people who tried to buy it couldn’t even hold the weapon.
We had forgotten that there was a level requirement for dungeon weapons. In addition, this sword was made from the drop of a Minotaur that even the Hero Party had not beaten, so there was no way an ordinary explorer could carry it.
Will it be sold as it is? It’s quite expensive but 893 people who seemed to have just come to check some equipment tried to buy it.
Normally, if there is only one buyer, the amount should go down, but 893 people making bids bloated the price to a ridiculous level.
“Oh, this weapon has a requirement of level 23. Can’t the leader use it?” (Kei)
A level of twenty-three is a high level that high-level explorers can reach by raising a few more levels. If that’s the case, it’s only natural that they would want to buy one while he can.
From there, it became a bidding war between high-level explorers who were making a lot of money from their daily exploration.
In the end, the price came to about 5 million yen.
After commissions and other fees were deducted, the amount dropped to about 4 million yen, but it could not be helped. I thought it was just the way it was and accepted it.
Now, ordinary citizens like us haven’t received any detailed information about the government’s response after the subjugation of Gan Ceann. But, well,
“Now that we have a good income, I guess you’re done with your obsession with the Tokyo Dungeon.” (Kei)
“I guess so. Where should we go next? Since we have the money, let’s go to Hokkaido.” (Haru)
“After all, it doesn’t change much because it’s Japan. For now, I need to heal my right arm and find something to do. I won’t be working part-time for a while.” (Kei)
“That’s right.” (Haru)
While talking about such trivial things, the two of them went around the dungeon market and left without buying anything.
There is no one who knows that the siblings are really the strongest.
Today, the siblings are still pretending to be ordinary people in search of entertainment
