The next time Diora visited our house was three days later.
Until then, we didn't really go out of town, but made attribute steel, tea, and a millstone for green tea.
I was in charge of the millstone.
I thought that since normal millstones are made of granite, there would be no shortage of silicon dioxide, or quartz, for my millstone, but the brilliant Haruka argued with me here.
"Why don't you just use silicon carbide? And.
"What's that? I'm sure it's not my fault. I'm sure it wasn't my fault.
I asked him about it, and he told me that it is the third hardest material on earth, after diamond and boron carbide.
I don't know how it ranks in this fantasy world, but I am sure that it is hard enough to be used as a mortar.
The structure is a compound of carbon and silicon.
While oxygen and silicon are abundant in the soil, carbon is scarce, so charcoal is used to supplement it. When I used "Create Earth" in that condition, I succeeded in creating silicon carbide.
Because it's a black and silvery substance that's very hard.
Could it be diamond? So I got some charcoal and tried again, but all I got was a thin sheet.
When I showed it to Haruka and the others, they said, "Isn't that graphene? but they said that we had no use for it. If we were to buy it in Japan, it would be very expensive, but we can't afford it.
Incidentally, silicon carbide can be used to make diamond-like jewels, depending on the manufacturing method.
When I asked Haruka and his friends, "Is jewelry something you want? They said, "I don't have a chance to wear it ......", but I got the feeling that they might want it, so it might be a good idea to practice in their spare time.
The silicon carbide stone mortar did its job well, and succeeded in grinding a good-looking matcha.
Even after grinding for a while, the millstone didn't break down, so I'm sure it will last for a long time.
However, when Yuki saw it, she said, "Wouldn't it be easier to automate the process? But Yuki, seeing this, said, "Wouldn't it be easier to automate it?
It's true that you could make a millstone that works automatically if you made it into a magic tool, but it would have no flavor.
Since there is only a small amount of green tea to drink, it is better to grind it slowly by hand.
Yuki gave me a subtle look as I emphasized this, but Natsuki understood and was happy with my gift of the millstone, so there was no problem at all.
It's not like Natsuki was looking out for me ......, is it?
By the way, while we were working on our production, Toya had a little free time on his hands.
In the event that you've got a lot of time to spare, you may want to take Tommy out to kill some goblins, but right now he's at Gantz's store making shields for you. As you can imagine, I can't take Tommy out.
Even if he wanted to do production like us, Toya could only do blacksmithing. She is a little too weak to make weapons and armor for Gantz and the others.
Instead, Toya was making ordinary pots and pans in the forge in the corner of the garden as a diversion.
It is not particularly well made, the only difference is that it is square and has a handle - or rather, it does not have a handle.
The only difference is that it is square and has no handle.
In fact, this pot is specially designed to be used in the storage room, where food can be kept almost in its original state.
In order to save time and effort in cooking, and to be able to eat whenever we want, we usually cook a large amount of food at a time, and store it in small portions in the pot.
However, if you want to stockpile a large number of different kinds of food, you will need a large number of pots and pans, and if they are round and have handles, it is difficult to fit them without gaps.
For this reason, Toya created this square pot (?), saying, "It's a storage container that is hardly used for cooking anyway, so it's just fine. It holds about 10 servings of soup.
The first size holds about 10 servings of soup, and each half of the pot has a second, third, and fourth size, designed to fit snugly on the shelf of the storage room.
Since size 4 is enough for one person, it is easy to eat when you are hungry.
Therefore, when Toya has some free time, he is supposed to make more pots.
I'll leave it at that.
We invited Mr. Diora into the living room and served him a cup of freshly brewed tea when he came to visit us after several days of production activities.
Diora, thank you for coming.
No, no, no, it's my fault for not answering you the other day! Don't worry this time, I've done my research!
It must have taken a lot of effort to find out, because it took about three days.
Diora puffed out her chest, took out a small note, and opened her mouth while looking at it.
Almost the entire body of the Dahl's Bear is available for purchase.
"All of it?
The skin that withstood our magic is excellent for leather armor, and the large, sharp claws can be used as weapons.
The meat is quite tasty for a bear and sells for a good price, and the organs are also sought after for medicinal purposes.
Some of them need to be fresh, but we keep them in magic bags, so it's not a problem.
Diora slurred her words and took a sip of her tea to catch her breath.
Then she looked at him in surprise.
"What is this tea? It's so good!
"Thank you very much. I couldn't find the one I used to drink, so I made it.
Natsuki smiled a little happily at Diora's praise, and said something like that.
I helped out a bit, shortening the fermentation process with Accelerate Time and using magic to heat and cool it, but Natsuki did all the work, so it's safe to say it was his work.
Green tea, oolong tea, and black tea were all made to look like that, but the tea I served Diora was one of them.
I didn't know what kind of tea was drunk around here, so it was a bit random, but judging from the fact that Diora sipped the tea without any resistance and praised it, she must have drunk something that looked like tea.
You made this yourself? ....... It's amazing. I've never had tea this good.
"Really? I don't think it's ready yet.
No, no, no, not at all! Only rich people drink tea to begin with, but this is the best I've ever had!
I thought it was just a tea made by an amateur, no matter how much it was made by Natsuki, but it was rated higher than I imagined.
Of course I thought it was good, but I wasn't confident enough in my own taste to evaluate it. .......
I'm not sure if it's because I'm not a good cook or a good pharmacist.
I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think it's a good idea. But that doesn't mean you can't drink what you're served. ......
Diora frowned as she remembered the tea.
As the vice-chief of the guild, I guess he has to deal with nobles and rich people.
I don't know the etiquette of this world, but I guess it's wrong not to eat what you're served.
If it smells musty, there must be a problem with the manufacturing process or transportation.
Yes, I think so. If the quality is that bad, I think it would be better not to serve it, but some people are vain.
I'm sorry for your loss.
I'm sorry for your loss. ...... But it's ...... amazing that Natsuki-san made this. I'm jealous.
She sipped the tea again and swallowed it slowly, savoring it.
One sip, two sips: .......
Mmm. I helped make that tea.
It's certainly nice to get a compliment, but...
I'll wrap up the tea for you, Diora, so you can continue with your story about Dahl's Bear.
In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, there are a number of things you can do.
I'm sorry! In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at the following web site: .......
The reason he was somewhat slurring his words was because of this.
The Adventurer's Guild also has a magic bag that can store materials, but it's not that big.
The meat of a giant Dahl's Bear would weigh several tons. And the unit price is a bit high.
If it were a big town, it would be possible to sell it, but considering the population of this town, there are not that many buyers, and it would be risky to buy it at normal prices.
The same is true for the other parts of the body, and considering the trouble of selling them to other towns, it seems difficult to buy them at the standard price.
But you wouldn't have known that if I hadn't told you, would you? We don't know the purchase price of Dahl's Bear.
"No, no! I'm honest with adventurers. That's my motto!
As expected of you, Diora. You've got that down pat.
It's a little hard to believe that she's using her guild employee privileges to buy - or even sell - dildos cheaply.
"Well, what if we store it in our magic bags and keep it in small batches?
"Well, if that's the case, we have nothing to say. We can buy it at the usual price.
And as for the skins, we're not going to sell them. ......
What? All of them? There seems to be a lot of interest in Dahl's Bear skins. ......
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.
It's a great way to make your own armor.
In fact, the weakness of the leather armor in relation to the chainmail is proven by the fact that Toya's baskets were easily torn off.
The decision was made to update the rest of the armor, including Toya's, when good leather was available, and there was no way to give up on the good Dahl's Bear leather.
In response to Haruka's explanation, Diora looked around at all of us, looked up and pondered, and after a few moments, opened her mouth somewhat reservedly.
I'm sure there's more than enough armor for everyone, given the size of Dahl's Bear, right? If you have any left over, you can sell it to me.
"Yeah, sure. If you have any left over, it's fine. You know?
Yeah, why not? There's no point in keeping it.
When you think about it, Dahl's Bear's body is noticeably larger than the demons we've killed so far.
A single leg is about the size of a man, so even if you made a full body armor out of it, it would probably be too much.
In addition, since we are basically partial armor, we probably wouldn't consume even half of it.
You may want to keep some of it in case of breakage, but if you can, try your best to replace it with something better before it breaks.
There are better leathers than ......, but they are stronger than that. .......
It's hard to imagine. .......
So, after we make it, we can use the leftovers.
Of course, that's fine! Thank you very much!
Thank you very much!" Diora thanked him happily and bowed her head.
Well, the price Diora offered was quite a good one, and it was in our interest, so there was no problem.
In the end, the sale of the Dahl's Bear was divided into several parts.
We get a good price, and the Adventurer's Guild gets a good price and a good commission. It's a win-win situation for both parties.
As an added bonus, our adventurer's rank has been increased by one to 5.
It would be difficult to raise our rank under normal circumstances, since we've only completed a small number of requests, but there are no suitable requests in Raffan to begin with, and we recently defeated a bandit at the request of the guild, and for good measure, we killed Darl's Bear.
Under these circumstances, the branch manager decided that there was no problem in raising the level of the guild, but that it would be a bad idea not to.
According to Diora, "The guild wants to keep the best adventurers.
Considering the amount of money we make, she feared that even if we had a house in this town, we might leave the town if our rank didn't improve much.
I don't have any plans to do so at the moment, but it's not worth it to get ......, so I asked him to raise my rank honestly.
The only benefit of being a rank 5 is a little bit of respect from your peers, though.
