“Welcome! Ladies and gentlemen! I’m the Demon King! To put it simply, I’m your employer! The president!” (Demon King)
The employees, including myself, can’t react to the dignified declaration that sounded quite natural.
Demon King = President, I wonder if the equation seems to hold, but I didn’t know how to react to the way he appeared, which seemed to have completely skipped the formalities.
Should I get out of the chair and kneel and copy the instructors?
“Oh, you can stay in the same position. You are my subordinates, but you are not my vassals, a show of courtesy is necessary, but deference is not needed!” (Demon King)
As if to say that he knows everything, he showed me his charisma, and I was able to see how big he was.
“First of all, you have a hard time training! In addition, did you receive my “stick”? Oh, you don’t have to say, based on the look on your faces, you probably took it seriously.
I won’t let you leave as it is, I’ve given you the “stick”, let me now give you a “carrot”.” [T/N: It’s supposed to be whip instead of stick and candy instead of carrot. However, I chose the more common English metaphors for rewards and punishments.]
He is like an actor.
Gazes gathered from the supervisor then to the Demon King himself.
“I’m going to open up the facilities that have been unusable until now. The details have already been distributed to each room. Please look forward to it. Of course, as an employee, you will receive a discount, so feel free to use them.” (Demon King)
It was already the Demon Lord’s own domain.
Every word in his voice is powerful.
You can’t think of anything wrong with it.
“And for those who get results, there will be special rewards! Let’s make it easy for everyone to understand the results by ranking them and posting them up every week! The top three performers in the next six months will receive whatever I can provide in my name as the Demon Lord! If you want money, I’ll give it to you! If you want power, I’ll give it to you! If you want status, I’ll give it to you! I’ll give you what you desire!” (Demon King)
If a normal person were to say this, it would definitely be a scam or a lie, and you would be suspicious of what he was saying, but there is no lie in the words of the Demon King standing on the stage.
If he says he will provide it, then he will provide it.
And the air, which had been cold until a moment ago, was burning up in a flash.
He is really good at inspiring people’s desires.
I was simply amazed by this.
On the other hand, I found myself looking at the scene with rather indifferent eyes.
My twenties are almost over, and I’m now in my thirties.
I’m happy to hear that the rewards are going to be higher, but I’m not that excited about it.
“So much for stopping you with long speeches! The dungeon is now open! Use your own judgment!
This concludes the Welcoming Ceremony!” (Demon King)
Well, there are certainly differing feelings.
The Demon King descended on the stage at the signal of the supervisor’s words, followed by the instructors. My heartbeat became a little faster.
It may have been my imagination, but for a moment, I felt as if my gaze met that of the Demon Lord.
I’m not sure what to make of that, but I’m sure it was just my imagination.
“Even so, are the instructors in a very high position to follow after the Demon King?”
At the time of self-introduction, I thought that it had nothing to do with the future if I should have asked about the position.
~Demon King’s Perspective~
“Demon King?” (Evia)
“Evia, I hope you won’t be angry with me.” (Demon King)
“Then at least let me go through the motions.” (Evia)
“Then I can’t talk to him.” (Demon King)
For a change, the place was not a modern lecture room, but a medieval throne room, where the supervisors and instructors, or rather the Kingsguard and the Generals were lined up in a row, looking up at the King of the Throne.
“Kakakaka, always the same schemes, Demon King, how was it?” (Fusio)
“Hmm, at first I thought it was something to look forward to in the future, but boy was it good.” (Demon King)
“Oh, it’s rare for a general who speaks so harshly to give praise.” (Kio)
“Yeah, I thought it was poor hiring this time based on magical aptitude, but you see, it’s a bargain. And I see what you mean. That’s a guy who knows people. No, he understood and was convinced when he had been sucked dry by people. Therefore, a line has been drawn. Do I like that? If I had to say, I would say that people who are able to draw such a firm line and discard others based on their own judgment are competent individuals, but they are not cooperative with others.” (Demon King)
I smiled as I prop my elbows on the throne, “It’s been a while since I’ve seen anything good.”
Now as the Demon King, I am truly enjoying myself.
“Even so, Kingsguard-san how sly, hiding the truth. This isn’t just a Soul Stone?” (Kuzuri)
The woman with the fan, Insect King, Kuzuri, glanced at me as if to say something, as she took out the pendant I had just given her.
Her eyes narrow and her mouth seemed to be laughing, but it is more correct to say that she’s scoffing at it.
“A demon does not lie, you know. It’s definitely a spirit stone. The abilities I described are definitely there, but there’ s more to it than that.” (Evia)
“Really, how terrible.” (Kuzuri)
The Kingsguard Evia had the same expression as Kuzuri
“By incorporating techniques after analyzing the hero’s ability. This combines the magic power of the dungeon and the magic power of the user each time they are regenerated. They generate high-quality magical power but it returns magic power back to the dungeon. It is not just one thing. You’re a demon you know?” (Giant King)
“Giant King, you are a terrible listener. Treatments aren’t free. If we leave their magical power alone, they will recover. I’m just collecting the magical power that would have been wasted and thrown away instead of asking for payment.” (Evia)
“Kakakaka, that will enrich our Army, you’ve really thought about it.” (Fusio)
“You don’t like it do you, Warlock?” (Demon King)
“No, they’re not my people. I don’t need to worry about them.” (Warlock)
For the Demon King and his Generals, this is nothing more than just a trick. However, the conversation moves on to another topic.
“Hmm, then that’s okay If so, Amiri, I believe your dungeon is still unfinished, any updates?” (Demon King)
After the confirmation of Evia’s plan, the next step was for the testers to dive into the dungeons, some of which were not yet completed.
Some of the dungeons were still incomplete, and the purpose of this project was to find out what the problems were. There is no such thing as a completed dungeon, but there is one dungeon that has been lagging behind the others.
When the Demon Lord turned his gaze from his throne and even called out to him, he was met by a being whose figure was completely covered by a robe.
When the Demon Lord spoke to him, the being revealed itself.
He took off his hood and showed his face.
The face was that of a young girl, but with circuits like a machine running through every part of her face, it would be more correct to describe her expression as inorganic rather than expressionless.
However, this, together with her long, gray hair that shone softly, gave her a doll-like beauty.
“The dungeon is about sixty percent complete, the deployment rate of the soldiers is forty-five percent, and the construction of the upper levels is complete, so the current situation is sufficient for the testers to attack.” (Amri)
The fact that she used the word “attack” instead of “test” shows the perspective of a General regarding the testers.
Moreover, even though the words sound like they’re from a commander and thus should have a human voice, it sounds inorganic.
“Kekekeke, the young Machine King is full of confidence.” (Dragon King)
As if to respond to this, a somewhat casual voice offered praise.
“Yeah, I’m not skeptical of Amiri’s report. She won’t make an unfounded report. If Amiri says it’s okay, it’s okay. If anything, Dragon King, you’re the one I’m most worried about?” (Demon King)
“Oh, Your Highness that’s not true. No matter how playful I am, but I’m not building a tiny dungeon that will allow those little insects to break through.” (Dragon King)
“Your clan is perfectly capable, but you keep causing problems with your playfulness. I’m worried about you. In addition, it’s hard to criticize them because they make up for it with their results. Would you please spare me the worry?” (Demon King)
“Kekekeke, I’ll do it perfectly.” (Dragon King)
The Dragon King, Vascar, seems to be a veteran warrior with a long military history based on his appearance. However, it has been ruined by his playful tone, is his attitude the same every time, or does he think that there will be no problem as long as he gets results? I wonder if I’m going to say any more, I quickly look around.
That alone changes the mood.
“Well, my dear vassals. It’s no exaggeration to say that our entire dream depends on this plan. All of you, give it your all.” (Demon King)
“““Everything is at your will””” (Vassals)
Satisfied with the answers of the generals, the Demon King looked up at the purple moon reflected in the skylight seen from the throne and realized that it was finally about to begin.
The dungeon is about to move.
