It is the morning after five days of successfully hunting the Great Boar with the newcomer. I'm going to fetch water. Usually, a revitalized Rodin goes to fetch water, but today he says he's going and goes.
At the bell of six o'clock in the morning, he brings two large vats. There is already a line of serfs.
Greet loudly. It's important to turn everyone around.
"Oh! You are the son of Rodin's family. Good morning.
Some of them are people who look familiar. They are serfs on a hunting trip.
"Will the boy be here tomorrow?
Another serf comes up to me.
Yes, I'll be there every time. Somebody tell my father to give Allen a spear too.
I'm having trouble getting my father to let me join in the hunt," he says with a frustrated look on his face.
"No, Mr. Rodin will have us all killed if you talk like that.
There's laughter at the water fountain. There's a serf who joins in the conversation enviously.
"It's nice that you guys get to join the hunt.
"What are you talking about. Go ahead and stop doing demolition work. I heard we're bringing in two new recruits tomorrow.
He adds that the late son is visiting Mr. Rodin's place.
"My wife has a big belly. I can't leave him alone.
The first round of the long spear training (named by Allen) for new recruits ended in success. As a result, you will keep the first rookie and recruit two new ones. We will increase the number of new participants by 2 and level up.
Another farmer who has not participated in the boa hunt agrees with the statement that he cannot participate. Boa hunting is a matter of life and death. Allen also sees great boas that are over six feet tall. There's no way you can be sure you'll come back safe.
That's true. They say they'll be hunting every six days this year. Give us a shout if you ever feel like joining us again.
Yeah, I get it. We need meat for my wife. We have a small farm, so even more demolition would help.
Hearing that, I call out to the serfs, only to demolish them.
"Excuse me, mister,
I'm not old enough to be an uncle, but what is it?
I need your help with something.
Actually, this is the purpose of coming to fetch water. He asked me to come home at nine o'clock in the morning and bring back a tub of water.
And it was nine o'clock. One of the serfs who had called him in the morning would come to Allen's house.
Oh, hello! Thank you for coming.
Yeah, no problem. So what is it you need to ask?
A serf like that will look at what was hung in the canal.
Oh, that's the one I just caught.
Two Albaherons are hanging. Blood is still dripping from the neck of the dead Albahelon, drawing some blood. I'll tell them to come over here and I'll show them to you.
This is ......
There were countless Albaherons.
Allen resumed the hunting of Albaheron in October. He told Rodin that he would not be working in the fields until November, but would concentrate on hunting Albaheron. Rodin told me it was no problem. Allen's help is helpful, but I don't rely on it.
I catch from one to as many as three Albaherons every day in the morning to play knights in the afternoon. Furthermore, the fallow ground is always somewhere in Rodin's field. Last year's fallow ground was turned into a field, so we are using another fallow ground.
The method was established last year, so we can hunt albaherons without problems. But there is no way to dismantle them. They are piling up one by one without being able to dismantle them.
I thought about asking Rodin to dismantle them as well, but in addition to working in the field, he's not home to train new recruits when he's free. Rodin is even busier than Allen.
And now, to the present. Of the twelve albaherons we've caught in the past five days, only five of them have been dismantled. I thought you could help me dismantle the remaining seven.
I see, I need you to help me take them apart.
I think I understand you, Allen.
"You will receive two chunks of meat for every one of them.
"Huh? Is that okay? Take that much.
They say it's not a problem at all.
The other day I talked to a butcher in a residential neighborhood. About buying the meat. To earn 50 gold coins. So I asked the butcher to buy the meat for me, not the salt shop or the woodsman.
Then the butcher told me that I would get 40% of the meat from the dismantling, and 20% if I only buy it. Unlike bartering, they charge a fee. If you don't take it, the butcher won't make any money.
I've decided to get a fellow serf to help me cut up the meat. I'll pay him 20% of the same as the butcher. It's also easier to get the meat to the residential areas if you take it apart.
(If you want to convert it into money, it's six pieces of silver? Or you can dismantle it yourself for 8 silver.
It's better to have a subcontractor to help you dismantle it, since you have to level up.
Even when I was Kenichi, I was constantly leveling up and exchanging the items I found for cash immediately. I didn't use the items I found to brew or generate weapons. I'm all about the hunt. If you need an item, you can buy it from a craftsman-type player.
Oh, these albaherons make a delicious liver. Dismantle five of them and you can have one.
I couldn't sell the fast-footed entrails. The family will eat them, and we will catch enough to share with Crenna's, Dogora's, and Peromus' houses. I'll share with the people who helped me take it apart.
They seem to agree that that would be helpful. It was Allen who explained the dismantling method.
And it is the day after the day changed. Today is boa hunting day. We are now in a hunting ground in the woods. The hunting ground is the same place as before. The reason for not changing the location is that there are newcomers in the woods and we don't want to risk going deep into the woods and suddenly running into a great boa.
The fishing team will lead you through the forest so the danger is not so great. It is a way to avoid unnecessary risks. However, if there is no great boa in the vicinity, the plan is to go further into the woods.
Only the three fishermen go into the woods, and the rest wait at the waiting point where they will hunt.
The two newcomers look very worried. They are both commoners. The newcomers are also talking to the serfs, and there are a number of them on the waiting list. Apparently, the two newcomers who participated in the last hunt were unharmed, and the joy of passing the divine test has made it effective to tell them off.
Today, Allen followed them again. Because he did not participate in the defeat, there was no reward for him. Also, the long spear squad, the proof of being a rookie, has been reduced to four today, but the reward is only half of what we defeated. Splitting this reward is also Allen's idea.
The 2 meter long spear weighs 10 kilograms.
4 meter spear weighs 5 kg
Demolition only 3 kilograms
For now, I'm focusing on leveling up, but the plan is to move them to a group with the right characteristics after they have some experience in defeating the enemy.
I'm going to be able to have a look at a few of them.
Fishing requires speed, enclosure requires durability, and stabbing is an offensive ability.
When Allen heard that they would be divided into these three groups to hunt, he remembered the Appraisal Ceremony. They were all probably untalented, and would have been graded on an ability value of C to E.
Naturally, when you level up, C will have a greater status increase than E. And the ability value varies from person to person. The data from the appraisal of 32 players, including myself, seemed to be fairly random.
It is best to divide those with a C grade of speed into the fishing team, those with a C grade of durability into the enclosure team, and those with a C grade of offense into the stopping team. I've told Rodan and Gerda that when they receive power from God after the ordeal, they should be divided into groups that match their characteristics.
It's been a few minutes since the three members of the fishing team left.
"The boa's coming!
While I'm thinking about that, the boa comes along.
(Oh! (The boa came!)
Pekeji, the leader of the fishing team, is coming out of the woods very fast. Today, three people came out at the same time, so the great boa was alone.
Is it about time. Come on, Denka!
Allen is doing something, but the hunt goes on.
Pekeji and the other three fishermen charge through the middle of Gerda's group as fast as they can. Gerda and her team of enclosures catch them. Once the enclosure is complete, Rodin and his team will aim for the neck!
It was a perfect move as before.
"Come on, rookies! Don't stab us in the back!
Gerda reminds them not to stab themselves in the wrong place with the long spear. The four newcomers poke them all at once with their long spears.
Less than five minutes later, fresh blood erupts from their necks. It's as if he'd jammed it into the vein in his neck. Then, not minutes later, it seems to have completely collapsed.
There it is! We've passed the gauntlet again!
"It's true! So this was what it meant to be beyond the ordeal!
Whether you are a first-time participant or a previous participant, all four of you level up.
Then, check the faintly glowing grimoire.
I've killed a Great Boar. I've gained 400 experience.
"Experience level is now 2000/2000. Level is now 3. Your strength has been increased by 25. Your magic power has been increased by 40. Your attack power has been increased by 14. Durability has been increased by 14. Speed has been increased by 26. Knowledge is 40. Good luck increased by 26.
(Yes! I guess I was considered to have participated in the battle after all. (And the level is up!)
Allen placed the bug H at the feet of the rushing Great Boar. It was instantly killed and vanished into a bubble of light.
Naturally, Allen's summoned beasts have a range that they can summon. It doesn't have to be anywhere visible, such as the horizon. On the other hand, it's not too narrow, even within a few meters. We have also tested the conditions of where you can summon.
Conditions for summoning a summoner
Within a radius of 50 meters
The radius is 50 meters, so the sky is possible. You can also summon a bird-like summoner and send it flying away. This time, the boa summoned insect H within 50 meters of the boa.
It cannot be summoned into a house that cannot be seen from the garden. You can't summon them at the feet of the boa's body. It has to be right underneath the boa's feet at the moment it crushes him. It's all about timing.
(I see.) Even if you're hit, and even if the summoner is hit, it's still subject to experience sharing. (I wonder if the fishing team without a spear after catching a fish would get experience even if it was targeted by a magical beast?
Conditions for experience distribution
Targeted by a hexenbiest
(Something like this?)
We were also going to proceed with the validation of the conditions of experience sharing in this boa hunt.
Thus, we do a number of new things, such as getting help with the dismantling of the Albaheron, advancing the validation of experience sharing, and so on. I'm also very busy about this fall/winter.
