252-227 Request and international affairs (2)

What happens to the adventurers if there's a war between the nations?

As a rule, they are free. There are no compulsory requests, such as when demons attack a town. But you may be asked to help.


Yes. It's not compulsory, but if you're going to live in the country, you might as well do it.

 Well, if someone is taking it easy and not cooperating with you while you are struggling, people will look at you harshly.

 If you are visiting a country temporarily, you can ignore such things. ...... I have a good number of acquaintances in this country.

If you're in a country that's in trouble, it's best to get out as soon as possible. Some countries do not respect the independence of the Adventurer's Guild.

 I don't intend to enter the country, but I think the Kingdom of Fegley is the most right-wing. I don't want to help the Iupiklisur Empire if they discriminate against elves.

 I don't want to help in the war if I can help it, but if the Kingdom of Rhenium is going to lose, then I'll have to think about it.

 I don't want to lose my comfortable country, and if the Kingdom of Rhenium loses, our ally, the Principality of Austianum, will be in danger.

 Considering the races of me, Haruka, and Toya, the loss of these two countries would be too much of a disadvantage, and finding a completely different country to run away to is not very realistic either.

 It's not that easy to get information about other countries.

Don't worry about it. There hasn't been a war with another country in more than ten years, and even if there were, it wouldn't affect this territory, which is far from the border. We should be more worried about the demons attacking us. This one is compulsory.

 Well, I guess we have no choice.
 Hunting demons is what adventurers do, and it's our home, too.

 By the way, this compulsory request doesn't apply to adventurers who only have day jobs, and even if they do, it's only for logistical support.

 And even if they are, it's only for logistical support. Making them actually fight would only increase their casualties.

I get it. Thanks for everything. So, what's the other favor?

Uh, yes. I was wondering if you could take care of my escort request.

Escort request? As Diora knows, we're not very good at this. ......

Yes. But this time it's a little different. ......

 In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at the web site.

Isn't such a thing usually done by knights of nobility or soldiers of the realm? I don't think it's something you'd ask an adventurer to do. ......?

Yeah. Of course, Viscount Nenus's guards will accompany you as escorts. But unfortunately, the soldiers in this territory are not very skilled, aren't they?

 The Viscount Nenus family is not very wealthy, and in this territory, which is basically peaceful, there is little need to have a strong territorial army, and the number of soldiers is limited.

 This time, they wanted to hire adventurers to supplement their forces due to the lack of manpower from the disturbances in Kerug, the lack of security along the way, and their specialty in fighting.

I would like you all to be on the lookout for and defeat demons and bandits. The direct protection of the daughter will be done by the Lord's Guard, so it should be relatively easy. I'm sure you'll be happy with the results.

"...... Is that so?

Yes. At the very least, they are not arrogant aristocrats, so there is no problem if you treat them normally.

If that's the case, you might want to consider ......? It depends on the reward.

 I'm not sure what to make of it.

 It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your vacation.

You can find a lot more information on this at ....... You can find a lot of things that you can do to make your life easier.

 In addition to the fact that they are not very wealthy to begin with, the Kergu riots have necessitated a reconstruction budget, and then there is the wedding of Baron Diaz's heir.

 In addition to that, the wedding of the Baron Diaz's heir is also a big deal, so you need an emissary with a certain status, and you can't be too generous with the gift.

 The milk from Red Strike Ox was more rare and valuable than the amount of money, and it was the perfect gift for the wedding.

I'm not sure what to make of this. It's a good idea to have a good escort for your daughter, but you don't seem to have one. I've also been told that I can't afford a good adventurer.

I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what to do, but you'll have to pay a fair price. ......

I don't need a high fee, but a reasonable one.

Yes. If you're a purchaser of Red Strike Ox's milk, I'm sure you can learn a thing or two. ......

 Oh, that's what I'm talking about.

 It's a fair price, but considering that you bought 10,000 gold coins at once, you might want to consider it.

I'm an employee of the guild, so I'm not trying to use you for unfair rewards. However, I was wondering if you could give me some advice on what I should pay you. Wouldn't you all like to have a 'summer dungeon'?


 We all twisted our heads when we heard those words out of the blue.
 You want a dungeon?
 What do you mean?

Normally, the ownership of a dungeon lies with the lord of the land. We have been assured that the ownership, or more precisely, the dungeon and its entrance area, will be given in exchange for a reward.

...... Well, does that mean we can make that dungeon our private property?

Yes. You will have the authority to forbid entry - no, you will have the authority to decide how to handle it. It will be your responsibility to carry it out, though.

 In other words, you are free to shut down the dungeon, charge admission fees, and collect taxes from what you find inside. But if you want to do that, you are free to do so.

 However, if you want to do that, you should prepare your own security personnel.

 Does this mean that we wanted to monopolize the fruit, so Diora-san negotiated with us?

How is that possible?
It's possible. It's not usually done.

 I heard that land ownership and other rights are related to the interests of the nobility, so they don't usually transfer their rights completely.

 Our house is also owned by us, but we have to pay taxes every year, and in some cases, the lord's will may take precedence and the land may be taken away.

 Of course, in such a case, compensation is usually given in the form of money, but that doesn't mean that the common people can do anything about it.

 However, since it would show an opening to the other nobles, they usually take proper measures.

But this time, the reward is a little different. We'll register it properly, so it can't be overturned by anyone other than the king.

That's the great ......, isn't it?

Yes. Well, there's a reason for the location.

 In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

 It's a stain that Viscount Nenus would like to erase, and there's a certain benefit to having it gone.

 What's more, we're the only ones in there, and most of what we get will be sold to Rafan's guild.

 As for Viscount Nenus, since he will receive taxes from the dungeon, the revenue will be the same as before, and in fact, if the acquisition of the dungeon motivates us, we can expect more harvest than before.

 If giving away such a dungeon means that we don't need to pay for hiring a rank 5 adventurer, it's not a bad decision.

I see. Is that what Diora-san negotiated?

"Yes, well, yes. Well, yes, I did. I didn't want to be asked to pay less, so I tried to reach a compromise.

 Diora smiled and affirmed Haruka's words.

 It's a good idea to take a look at the website to see if you can find anything that might be of value to you.

 To be honest, negotiating a fee with a nobleman is a high hurdle for us, and if it is the lord of the place where we live, we have no choice but to accept a little recklessness.

 If you think about it, the negotiation that Diora has put together looks pretty good. .......

What should I do? I don't think it's a bad deal. ......

"Well, yeah. It doesn't matter much at the moment, but if there are any adventurers coming that way, it would be great to be able to prohibit their entry.

As for the other stuff, the fruits are going to be easy to pick through.

Yeah. If they pick it before it's ready to eat, it's .......

 Also, if the strike ox is killed in vain, we won't be able to milk it.
 Even if we bring in adventurers, it's great that we can set our own rules.

I think it's a good idea. It's a good opportunity to visit another town.

Yeah, that's true. We're not likely to go far unless we have this opportunity.

 We have a stable life now and we're not too dissatisfied.

I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that. ...... Yeah. Ms. Diora, I'd like to take that job.

Thank you very much. To be honest, I couldn't find any adventurers I could trust to do the job without your help. Thank you very much.

 I'm sure you'll be glad to know that I'm not the only one who has a problem with this.

You've been a great help to me, Diora. I'm glad that I can repay you in some small way. But isn't there a certain amount of people in the territorial city of Pining?

"No, it's peaceful there too. It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 It seems that adventurers have little work to do in this Viscount Nenus territory.

 It's a good territory if you think there are few problems, but it's a bit delicate in terms of revitalization.

 According to Diora, Viscount Nenus is a 'safe lord.

And if possible, I would have preferred a party with more women.
I'd have preferred a party with more women.
How old is Viscount Nenus' daughter?
She's nine. She's a little younger than Mary.

 She's even smaller than I thought!

 I thought she would be a grown woman since she was Viscount Nenus' representative, but is she okay?

"Oh, no, Mary is nine years old now.

 I'm not sure what to make of this, but I think it's a good idea.
 Diora's face showed her surprise when she heard that.

I'm not sure what to say. I'm not sure what to make of this.

I think it's the family environment. I think it's okay to be a little more childish. ....... I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will help you.

Yes, at least. It's hard to get a job without a guardian, though. Will I be registered?

Yes, I'd like to sign up. He says he wants to be an adventurer.

All right. Do you want me to make one now?

Can you do that?

Yes. I have a guardian.

 Guild cards in this world don't have special functions like 'registering magic power', so you can make a card even if you are not here.

 But Diora knew them and knew we were their guardians.

 So, if we wanted, he could make one for us, but Toya was the one who objected.

No, let's let him make it. It's kind of nice to have a guild card, isn't it?
"...... I guess so. Sorry, Diora. Another time, please.
Okay, okay. I'll be waiting for you.

 Diora nodded her head in agreement with Toya's words.

 I'm not sure if you've ever heard of this, but I'm sure you've heard of it.

 I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
 I didn't know what I was doing at the time.
 And financially, we were on the brink of securing a place to stay for the day.

 Well, Mary and Mitya's situation is completely different, and I'm sure they will register as adventurers with high hopes, just like Toya said. I'm sure.
