227-203 Continued Meat Area

 On the eighth level, we encountered a ripper hair and a big ostrich.

 They were a rabbit and a big ostrich, both of which were flying at us.

 The rabbits are slightly larger than jumbo rabbits, and they move rather slowly, but the flies are quite annoying and difficult to see.

 It is somewhat easier to grasp by sensing its magic power, but it is difficult to avoid if you are not used to it.

 However, the power is not that great, and even if it cuts through your clothes, the chainmail you wear underneath will only stop it, so if it doesn't hit an exposed area, such as your face, it won't hurt you.

 The Big Ostrich is truly big.

 It's a big ostrich with "big" attached to it, so it's big.

 Its head is so high above our heads that it almost scrapes the ceiling of the dungeon.

 Its beak, swung from that height, is powerful enough to shatter the stones on the floor, and its kicks, delivered while running around at high speed, are so powerful that even Toya would be kicked away if he were not careful.

 Fortunately, however, they do not swarm, but attack alone, so it is quite easy to kill them by avoiding them, aiming at their legs, or cutting off their heads.

 It is also effective to aim at its neck with the Sickle Wind (Air Cutter), and once you get used to it, you can cut off its head before it gets close and get a lot of meat without much effort.

 It's also a great way to get a lot of money for your business.

 It's a good thing we didn't find any treasure chests in this meat level. ......

    I'm not sure what to make of this.

Now that we've got a lot of meat, it looks like ...... that's over.

The boss room, I think.

 At the far end of the eighth level, a familiar door appeared in front of me.

What do you think it is this time?

In the past, this has been a pattern, it's a higher level of the enemies that have appeared in this area. It's a little scary to think that it's a higher version of the ...... Big Ostrich.

 I'm not sure what to make of that.

 I completely agree with you. I don't want to think about a higher species of that thing.

 No, it's not a big deal in terms of strength, but if that thing gets even bigger, there's no place to run.

 No matter where you are in the room, its beak will rain down from above your head.

I don't like that either, though it would take a lot of meat. The overwhelming disparity in body size is nothing to sneeze at.

There are two kinds of rabbits out there. ...... What are the odds it's a rabbit?

I'm not sure if it's a good idea to use the same name for both.

For me, it's the boar. For me, it would be a boar, strength-wise.

 The giant ostrich might be a suitable boss in a sense, but if you exclude it, the next best thing would be the Flame Boar.

 It's also a little awkward to have a higher-ranked rabbit as a boss, and a higher-ranked Armed Tail Grypt seems a little too difficult.

 Even a sword can't penetrate its armor-covered tail, but if it gets even bigger and harder, even Toya's blunt sword will have a hard time.

All right, are you ready? The correct answer is ...... "Tyrant Flame Boar". Nao is the correct answer.

 He was the first to open the door, and stepped into the room.

 In the event that you've got a lot of time, you'll be able to take a look at the following tips to help you get started.

 Its huge body would be a threat to most people, but to me, who had already defeated Dahl's Bear, it was just a big body.

 However, considering that it is a superior species to the Flame Boar, it will probably breathe out breath - through its nose.

 You have to be a little careful there. I'm not trying to be funny, okay?

Let's do the legs first!

 Toya runs to the left of the Tyrant Flame Boar, aiming for its left paw, while Natsuki runs the other way.

 The Tyrant Flame Boar looks momentarily unsure of which of Toya and the others to deal with as they split up.

 You'll be able to find a lot more information on this subject in this article.

I'm not sure what to do.
...... d*mn, that missed.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to do with your time.

"Ouch. That's terrible. Ow.

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's a good idea.

 The screaming is forced to stop.

 At the same time, Toya and Natsuki slash at his legs, causing the Tyrant Flame Boar to lose his balance.

"Your timing and aim are off. --.

 Haruka used a bow.

 If you're a fan of the game, you're going to love this game.

 The arrow strikes the center of the right eye and takes away its vision.

I'm not used to using the Stone Missile. What?

 This time, he aimed three Stone Missiles at the eye, and one of them hit the eye. It gouged out his eye.

 The Tyrant Flame Boar, whose front legs were nearly torn off by Toya and Natsuki's attacks, fell forward and scratched at his hind legs.


 The last attack was by Toya.

 The Tyrant Flame Boar shuddered and stopped moving for the last time.

"Hmm. Good work.
"That was just a big one. It didn't even breathe.

 Toya pulled out his sword, washed the dirt off it and sheathed it.

He didn't have time for that. First his nose was damaged, then his throat. It's only a breath, and it seems to require a preliminary action of breathing in and out.

"It's pretty self-explanatory, isn't it, the Flame Boar's preliminary movements? Once you get used to it, it's easy to interrupt it.

 He smiles and says that when he fights Flame Boar, he doesn't let it breathe out, he just kills it.

 Even though he was dealing with several of them at the same time, he was able to interrupt them without missing their preliminary movements.

 In the case of us rearguards, we're not in the range of the breath, so we're not affected, and once you get used to it, the Flame Boar is not much different from the Task Boar.

You've got a lot of meat on your hands again, haven't you?
"Yes. That's about the size of a brown streak, isn't it?

 Task Boar, how many heads?

 I'm not sure if I can use the meat, but I'm not sure if I can use the motsu.
 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

You will never be short of meat when you are in this area. There are many variations.

I'll ask Aella to teach me how to cook again. Take some meat as a gift.

 Dismantling and other matters were put on the back burner, the giant Tyrant Flame Boar was stored in the magic bag, and we proceeded to the back room that had appeared.

 The design of this room is basically the same, with a similar arrangement of treasure chests, magic circles, and stairs leading down.

Now, let's see what the treasure is this time.
"Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Is it a ...... staff or a ...... tin staff?

 After examining the treasure chest, Natsuki took out a 30 centimeter long tin staff.
 It's not a practical staff, but a ceremonial one.
 It was made of metal and had a five-centimeter spherical stone attached to its head.

A 'tin staff'. As usual, details are unknown.
Not exactly useful, Mr. Appraisal.
You're right. Don't tell me. ...... I'm thinking it too.
I wonder if it would have been more useful if Natsuki had it?
Please keep that question to yourself. I'm not sure if it's a good idea.

 It's a fact that can't be denied, as long as the result is influenced by your own knowledge.

 By the way, Yuki also has [Appraisal], but she never claims to have it in situations where it is necessary.

 I can't imagine that Yuki hasn't used it, and the information she can get is probably less than what Toya can tell her.

 As for me, I'd love to see Yuki surpass Toya's [Appraise] level and play an active role, but since there is no difference in the information she can get - books, etc. - it's not going to be easy.

 In the event that you've got a lot of money, you'll be able to use it to get the most out of your business.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will work for you.
That's right. It would be better for the guild to request it at the same time.

 If it can't be appraised in Raffan, it will have to be transported to another place, and the cost of appraising one gold coin will be a considerable loss for the Adventurer's Guild.

 I suppose the price is based on various considerations, but as a Japanese, I feel a little bad about it.

 Incidentally, I did some research on the possibility of losing, embezzling, or otherwise cheating on the guild, but it seems that there is almost no need to worry about this.

 After all, the Adventurer's Guild is a business of trust.

 In order to maintain the credibility of adventurers, the guild takes strict measures against any action that would bring down the credibility of the guild, such as sending us a request to kill bandits.

 If a guild staff member stole or switched out a requested item for appraisal, he or she would be dismissed with all assets confiscated.

 The adventurer's guild, however, is much darker than I thought.

I'm not sure what to say, but this dungeon seems like a good place for ...... leveling, doesn't it?

"What? What do you mean? You can't get very strong enemies, and you can't make much money. --The piccau is delicious, and this area provides meat, but you can't level up, right?

 Tohya twisted his head and questioned Yuki's words.
 But that's a one-sided view.

"That's for us, right? The enemies get stronger and stronger with each layer, and even if we don't make a lot of money, it's reasonable given the strength of the enemies, and we can make enough to live on.

It'll be useful for leveling rookies.

The types of enemies that appear in the game are also very good. Up to the second level, there are weak enemies, the next area has enemies that use weapons, and this area has enemies that use less powerful magic. If you progress steadily...

"You mean I can level up in a good way? Hmmm... I'm sensing something contrived here. There's a dungeon conveniently located nearby that's perfect for leveling up.

 Toya bent his mouth into a crooked shape and looked reluctant.

 I'm not sure what you're talking about.

It's the other way around, isn't it? I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on. Advaistris-sama, even if you don't admit to cheating, you do a good job of casually following up beforehand.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.

 I'm not sure what to do.

 It's a relatively safe area, with few demons, and you can get by with hard work.

 I'm not sure if it's the same thing. It's a relatively safe area, with few demons, and you can get by with hard work.

"So this dungeon is a career path for the future? If you want to get stronger, you have to train here.

 Is there an aftercareer plan?
 I'd like to hear about it if I could.

 But Toya was not quite convinced, and twisted his head.

I think the road to the entrance was pretty rough, though.

 Indeed, it is a tough place for a rookie to approach.

 If you can make it to this dungeon, you should have little trouble at least getting to this level.

 In addition, the zombies and skeletons that lived around the first level were not suitable for leveling because they were mixed with some strong ones.

 However, they seem to be a little different from the demons in this dungeon, and unlike the other demons, they don't seem to be resurrecting over time.

It's not that there was no place that met all the requirements, right? If you're thinking about leveling, a suitable dungeon town might have been fine, but I think they prioritized safety or something like that.

 It is true that a dungeon town where adventurers gather - a labyrinth city, for example - seems to be unsafe.

 If you think about it, I've never been in danger in Raffan.

 Even in the area where our house is located, which is said to be a bit unsafe, it doesn't feel like a slum, and we haven't seen any pickpockets or hoodlums.

 There are a lot of good people like Diora, Simon, and Ganz, and I never got into trouble on the streets or at the guild, except for my former classmates.

 --What a jerk, ex-classmates.

 We became adventurers, but not everyone wants to be an adventurer, and if you think about it, Rafan is a good place to live without being an adventurer.

 Yeah. If you think about it that way, I think Advaistris made the right choice.

 Maybe I should spend a little more money for this.
