We left the guardroom and head towards the adventurers’ guild.
Suga town’s adventurers’ guild building has an old fashion feel.
We tried to check out the F-rank requests posted on the request board.
The contents of the『【Medicinal herbs】gathering』and『【Goblin】subjugation』requests are the same as before in the Nippo town.
Only the last one was different.
│【Slime】subjugation (Repeatable request)
│Content: Subjugate 1【Slime】monster.
│ Bring in the【Slime’s nucleus】as the subjugation proof.
│Reward: 50 Aurum
So there are slimes around here, let’s look for it next time.
We won’t be selling the【Medicinal herbs】since we have a use for it ourselves, we’ll turn in the【Goblin】subjugation request however.
I went to the reception desk and turn in the『【Goblin】subjugation』requests while reporting about the matter of black and white orcs by also turning in the【Credential】.
We were rewarded with Aurum and Guild points,
the【Goblin】subjugation requests are 150 Aurum and 5 points per person,
and the black and white orc case is 600 Aurum and 20 points per person.
This time, the Guild points totaled to 35 points,
our guild ranks were promoted from【F-Rank】to【E-Rank】since we had more than 20 points.
Next is【D-Rank】which seems to be 100 points.
Because we aren’t particularly obsessed with raising our rank, we intend to keep going slowly.
I tried to check out the E-Rank requests on the request board.
Most of the requests are time consuming, it’s impossible for us who work only on weekends.
Perhaps, we can only do this one.
│【Wolf】subjugation (repeatable request)
│Content: Subjugate 3【Wolf】monsters.
│ Bring in the【Wolf’s fang】as the subjugation proof.
│Reward: 100 Aurum
So the【Wolves】I defeated before were E rank, I’ll segregate the 【Wolf】fangs I kept in the inventory later.
Though the sun is still high, it seems late to go outside again, we decided to explore the town after securing an inn.
The inn managed to accommodate us in two rooms.
I-, I’m not particularly lonely.~
We head towards the『Merchants’ guild』first.
At the reception desk was a reliable-looking oniisan.
「Right now, salt is overstocked so we aren’t buying it.
On the other hand,『Wheat』is in short supply so if you have we’d like to buy it at a high price.」
Is what he said.
It seems there’s not enough wheat under the influence of war.
I took out a 1 kg【Hard flour】and have them to take a look.
「T-, This is wheat flour!? Please wait a moment, I’ll just call an『Appraiser』.」
It’s somehow similar to the previous development……
Eventually, the【Hard flour】was appraised as an【S rank】and was sold at 100 Aurum.
Since it’s 100 Aurum per kg and you can make 10 bread per 100g, the production cost of a bread becomes over 10 Aurum. Such an expensive bread that only rich people can eat!
I should save up for the mana crystals’ admission fees, so next time, I’ll procure flour in large quantities.
We left the merchant guild after that, the sun is still high outside.
「By the way, Aya and Elena, is there somewhere you want to go?」
「Seiji-sama, I want a weapon.」
「Then, let’s go to the weapon shop, what do you think Aya?」
「Un, I’d like to look for weapons too.」
We went to the weapon shop.
Inside the weapon shop was a delicate lady.
I think this person isn’t suited for the weapon shop, also it was a bit different from the weapon shop I had in mind.
「There’s no swords, huh.」
「This is a weapon shop specially for rearguards.」
Specially for rearguards, in other words, bow and arrows, throwing knives, rod, and similar weapons.
「Excuse me but we are looking for a weapon for this girl to use, can you give advice on what kind of things are good?」
「T-, Thank you in advance.」
Elena bowed to the store manager.
「It’s just a small matter~ so, what kind of weapon have you been using until now?」
「Uhm, I’m using【Rod of water】, it can only be used to attack with magic and not directly.」
「I see, a water magician.」
「In addition to water, I can also use ice and recovery magic.」
「That’s amazing. So, you want to be able to attack besides using magic, huh.」
The store manager prepared some bow and arrows, and throwing knives for Elena, but after trying them out, she wasn’t able to handle them properly.
「If long-ranged weapon is no good then it can only be a rod.」
「If it’s a rod, there’s already the【Water rod】.」
「No, wait a minute, I’ll bring out a good one.」
The store manager said so and brought out a slightly thicker rod from the back.
「If it’s this rod, you can also perform melee attacks.」
I appraised the rod.
│The instant the attack hits,
│the wielder can convert MP to attack power,
│the increase in power is proportional to the magical power.
It seems somewhat good, I want it not just for Elena but for myself as well.
「How much is this?」
「It’s 5000 Aurum.」
We have enough money but if we are to buy it, most of it will be spent.
「It’s a little expensive, let’s look for another one.」
Elena was going to give it up.
「No, we’ll take this!」
「We have enough money, this is something good.
We must buy it by all means!」
「Hoo, this lad has good eyes~
But, this weapon is difficult to wield if your magical power isn’t high.」
「Because all of us have high magical power, we can appreciate such weapon.」
「Hou, is that right?~ Then, would you like to try it?」
We were guided to the backyard of the weapon shop.
There were several wooden dolls installed.
「Try it on this doll.」
The【Magic rod】was handed to Elena, she was a little confused.
「Elena, do your best!」
Elena hit the doll around the shoulder with amateurish movements.
When the【Magic rod】hit the doll’s shoulder, it produced a loud sound, *guran guran* the doll shook.
「Oh, Ojou-chan is amazing! It seems it was not just boastful talk, you really hit it.」
「I’d also like to try!」
Aya borrowed the【Magic rod】from Elena and struck a pose.
「Hou, this jou-chan knows a little about how to wield the weapon.」
Aya dashed using【Rapid slash】and hit the doll’s trunk with all her might.
The doll’s top from the torso flew out of the town, drawing a parabola.
「Wow! It’s amazing!
The magical power was almost the same as the first jou-chan but the difference in power came from the difference in weapon handling.」
Aya was pleased and high-fived Elena.
「I’m sorry for the broken doll.」
「Now now, that’s alright, that thing was cheap anyway.
Would you also like to try, lad?」
「No no, I’m good.」
I would feel sorry to break another doll.
「What, a man needs to be bold, try it.」
「No no, I’m good, really.」
「Mou! You’re a man! I won’t sell this to a cowardly man, okay?」
Ah, mou, I don’t care about what happens anymore!
「I understand, I’ll do it!
Don’t blame for what happens, okay?」
I took the【Magic rod】and went towards the doll.
On that day, a large【Earthquake】has occurred around the Suga town’s vicinity, it caused a commotion and the residents took refuge.
Fortunately, it didn’t cause any damage to buildings and people……
For some reason, a crater which was about 10 m in diameter was found in the weapon shop’s backyard.
