The Magic Ball caused a big explosion inside Rimdobmur destroying Rimdobmur from the inside. The trees in the vicinity disappeared, leaving behind a large number of item drops.
“My ears hurt.” (Haru)
“If we hadn’t been so far away, we would have died instantly. Oh, the drop items didn’t disappear.” (Kei)
Although somewhat scattered, the crater that has been created in the place where Rimdobmur once stood, the drop items are now lying inside.
Large amounts of scales, nails, fangs, skin, bones. There’s also meat. Everything was of such high quality that we were reluctant to use them.
We have a certain number of them, though, having destroyed its parts many times. We’ve got a certain number of them, but we’re still seeing drop items here and there that we’ve never seen before.
“Ooh, it is an all-you-can-eat meat party from Rimdobmur!” (Haru)
“Today’s supper will be super awesome.” (Kei)
Haru goes straight into the crater and picks up the scattered meat. As soon as we get home, we’ll wash it and cut off the dirty parts. There’s going to be a lot of work to do.
“ Well, I guess I’ll have to pick up stuff too?” (Kei)
While Haru is collecting the meat, I first collect the scales. With this alone, it seems that many various types of equipment can be made. I am very grateful.
“Brother, I see four skill cards. Two are gold.” (Haru)
“Oh, I found a reverse scale. If we got them because we didn’t weaken it, that means we’re the only ones in the world who have ever had them.” (Kei)
“Well, it’s a disposable item.” (Haru)
“Maybe it can be used as a material for [Alchemy] when we enhance or craft our weapons.” (Kei)
“I don’t think that skill can be used for weapons.” (Haru)
As Haru says, the skill given to the reverse scale is [Disaster Dragonification].
Even if the skill that strengthens Haru’s [Rampage] when used on a weapon, it will become eventually become useless since it destroys the item once it is activated.
“Okay, that’s everything.” (Kei)
When I finished picking up the last of the scales, I looked up to see Haru standing on top of the crater, looking around with a grim expression on her face.
“What’s wrong?” (Kei)
Haru turns to face me while tilting her head a little.
“Aren’t there supposed to be a lot of monsters? The monsters that were in the distance earlier have disappeared straight away.” (Haru)
I tried using [Perception], but there is not a monster around.
“Is it the influence of Rimdobmur?” (Kei)
It is quite possible that the monsters are gone due to the aftermath of the earlier battle. It’s a little weird, though.
“Even so, isn’t it strange that the monsters aren’t coming back? You know that right?” (Haru)
“Well, I think it’s strange. What’s wrong, Haru?” (Kei)
Haru turns in one direction looking quite shocked.
“I just sensed a monster running at the edge of the range of my [Detection]. Over there!” (Haru)
While saying that, she pointed in a certain direction.
“That is the entrance to the Forest area.” (Kei)
“Yep. By the way, I feel that the first monster that I was able to sense using [Detection] was heading there.” (Haru)
If the monster was really headed for the forest entrance, then it was climbing up the dungeon.
The only time monsters move through the levels is when a Stampede occurs. Stampede occurs when an explorer hunts too many of a certain type of monster, flees with a large number of monsters in tow, or when a unique monster of the type that can tow monsters appears. That was it.
Up until now.
“Haru, let’s head back home immediately. The monsters are heading in the same direction, so it’s likely a stampede.” (Kei)
Hurrying out of the crater I tell her this.
“ A stampede caused by a unique monster can’t gather monsters from other floors. That means…” (Kei)
In the dungeon, normal monsters, magic, and skills cannot interfere with other floors. However, there is an exception for a monster to move up a level.
It must be according to a unique monster. It is only by following a unique monster that a normal monster can move up a floor by recognizing that another monster is moving up a floor. In other words.
“It’s an irregularity. It’s likely that ordinary monsters are moving through the hierarchy on their own.” (Haru)
Monsters move through the levels without the influence of unique monsters. What does that mean?
Haru, who now has quite the anxious expression, added more to my words.
“The same thing may be happening throughout the entire dungeon.” (Haru)
“Let’s go, now!” (Kei)
I pulled out the sword on my hip and ran straight for the entrance to the forest. The closer you get to the entrance of the dungeon, the more monsters we encounter.
“This is bad.” (Kei)
The cave at the entrance to the forest was crowded with monsters.
“Brother, follow me”
Haru, who overtook me who stopped in front of the cave, casually jumped over the monster’s head and headed to the back of the cave with the monster’s head as a foothold.
I soon followed her and headed into the cave. I slashed at the monster, hoping it would stop it, but it disappeared underneath the monster’s feet as if crushed by another monster.
If this is the case, I will soon be stepped on and crushed to death.
“Take Thiiiiis!!!” (Kei)
Haru steps on the Transition Magic Circle, swinging her Tonfa and killing nearby monsters.
I also use [Strong Slash] to send the heads of several monsters flying and before landing in an empty space.
“”Transition Room.”” (Kei & Haru)
Hand in hand, we touched the magic circle and chanted that, and the scenery changed from a cave full of monsters to a transition room full of monsters. The Stampede seems to have occurred even on the first floor. Nevertheless.
“This kind of looks cute.” (Kei)
I muttered unintentionally.
Compared to the giant monsters in the Forest that could crush us if we weren’t careful, there were slime and child-sized goblins that were only as tall as our knees. There is no shadow of a monster above our waist, and if we swing our legs, the monsters disappear.
“Do you want to go home?” (Kei)
“That’s right.” (Haru)
Relieved by the weakness of the monsters on the first level, which I now remember, I walk towards the entrance, clearing the way with a simple kick.
“Wow, isn’t it a little dangerous?” (Haru)
“ It’s not the situation that’s bad, but the way it looks.” (Kei)
Unlike the other dungeons, the Kizaki family’s dungeon is a two-meter high pit. The actual entrance to the dungeon is located two meters down and to the side of the basement, so we assume that there was originally a cavity under the basement where the dungeon was built.
The difference between the floors is two meters high, but small goblins and slimes can’t climb it. Even so, monsters will try to climb it by trampling on other monsters and using them as footholds.
However, the entrance to the dungeon is covered by a fence, and the fence is not so fragile that monsters on the first level can break it.
Since the fence cannot be broken, you cannot get out of the dungeon, and other monsters can only move forward from behind.
The goblins and slimes had formed into a single mass at the entrance. If the monsters gathered here, some of them would be crushed to death. However, the monsters here were not so lucky.
Light-weight goblins and soft-bodied slimes. Since slimes can act as a cushioning material, goblins do not get crushed and die, and the amorphous slime fills the gaps between goblins.
“I don’t know if I want to eat a hamburger for now.” (Haru)
“A hamburger steak from Rimdobmur sounds delicious though.” (Kei)
It has become a living wall that is unpleasant to look at.
One big sigh.
“Haru, I’ll take care of that one, you take care of the one in the back.” (Kei)
We have almost no magical power anymore. I left the back to Haru and smashed the wall of monsters.
