329-297 Bonuses

 The next day after returning home with the [Climbing] skill, we decided to take a rest day to prepare for the dungeon exploration that would begin tomorrow.

 Since it was a rest day, the four of us, except for Toya, Mary, and Mitya, lounged around in the living room, literally resting.

 Mary and Mitya went to the orphanage to play, and Toya went along with them.

 Earlier, Natsuki had also been in the pharmacy lab, preparing the mold from the ingredients he had prepared before he went to the climbing training, but now he was resting.

 Of course, the molds were not just molds, but mold fungus.

 He is going to pick up several kinds of molds and cultivate them in a petri dish (made by my soil magic company) to see if they can actually break down starch into sugar.

 Of course, they didn't just collect molds in the dark, but they tried to isolate the molds before conducting the experiment, and the way to confirm the results is to actually eat them, which is quite challenging.

 According to Natsuki, "I have poison resistance, so I'll be fine. ...... Hmm...

 Well, with Natsuki, Haruka, and a specialist in healing, I guess I'll be fine.

But it's been a while since I've relaxed in the living room like this in the middle of the day.

It's been a while since I've relaxed in my living room like this, but I've been so busy lately with party preparations and rock climbing gear.

Also, preparing Nao and Haruka's pairing. And preparing Nao and Haruka's pairing... It was a lot of work, you know? I had to rush the craftsman, practice the 'adjustment', and make it work in the real thing.

"Yes, yes, thank you. It would have been a great job if you had just faded away quietly.

Yeah, that was a mistake. Yeah, that was a mistake. You should have just kept it in your mind and used it later.

 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.

"...... You're not feeling sorry enough, are you?

It's a joke! I'm just kidding! It's ...... true! I'm not sure what to do. It's scary, isn't it, alcohol? Don't drink and not be drunk! I know!

 In the event that you've got any questions regarding where and the best way to get in touch with us, we'll be happy to assist you.

 He turned his gaze to the door and saw Toya standing there.
 The first thing he said was.

I got a heavy bonus from Lord Adversus.

 At those words, we all immediately looked at each other, understood the situation, and let out a sigh of relief.

 Toya, perhaps unhappy with our behavior, looked a little disgruntled.

"No, I'm sure you're aware. I'm the last one. I wouldn't have told you otherwise.

 Well, that's true.
 There's no way I'm going to tell you without thinking about it.
 It's just that Mary and Mitya aren't here either.
 Those two seem to be visiting the orphanage quite often in their spare time.
 They seem to be getting along well with the orphans, probably because they are in the same age group.
 If they're having a good time, it's worth it for us to take them in.

That means we all got a heavy bonus.

"We've been donating a good amount of money, we... We've been donating a fair amount of money. I got [lucky! I was lucky.

"I got [good health].

I got a boost.

I'm fluffy.

"Fuzzy"? It's a benefit I'm slightly curious about. ...... Where's Haruka?

 In the event that you've got a lot more than one of these, you'll be able to take a look at a few of them.

I'm ...... ah, [safe delivery].
I'm sure you'll agree. I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.

 This is a great way to make sure that you get the most out of your investment.
 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

I'm not sure what you mean by "fusa fusa". It's fluffy enough, like your ears and tail. Does it make your cuticles look good?

"No, you said it prevents baldness.

Baldness ...... prevention ......?

 Does that ...... matter a bit?

 A balding beastman can be ...... pretty sad if it's just the head, or if the hair on the ears and tail is gone...

I'm sure you've heard of it.

It's not often, but it's not zero, apparently. Just the head, though.

Just the head. ...... I see. Well, it's possible for some humans to have a smooth head and a full beard.

 I'm not sure why people go bald on their heads in the first place.
 If it were a beard or something, it would have less effect.

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but I think it's a good idea.

 Considering the fact that many people used to shave their heads, ...... Japanese people are too easily influenced.

 A ring that costs three months salary, a diamond that shines forever, chocolates on Valentine's Day. It's all for the convenience of the seller.

 ...... As someone who gave Haruka a ring worth more than three months salary, I have to say.

I'm more concerned about Nao. What's that, [Lucky! Lucky.

It's the same thing. It's supposed to make you lucky. Subtly.


Subtly. Advaistris says it's as lucky as getting an arrow in the knee and having it slide into the thigh.

 All of us have an indescribable expression on our faces at the effect.
 It's not great, but it's not meaningless either.
 It's subtle.

"...... is really subtle. I hope you're lucky enough to at least miss the arrow.
"Yes. Then we'll never even know if we're lucky. ......
You've been hit by an arrow. ......


 It's been a good number of days since I received it, but I don't even know if this benefit has ever worked.

 I dare say I'm lucky to have ended up with Haruka in one piece. ...... No, if things had gone in the right order, we would have ended up together, right? Maybe.

I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out. The name itself is . I don't know how it works.
All of them are not bad, but this one is a little more subtle.
Yes, it's like a talisman from a shrine.

 That's a good point.

 Especially for good health and safe delivery. If you add traffic safety to it, it's a standard shrine charm.

How does it work? Natsuki's skill set is such that she never gets sick.

I think it worked a little bit for me, don't you? But I'm still training as usual.

I think I just got stronger.

 And no comment on Haruka.
 It's a little sensitive.
 It's a little sensitive.

"Hmm, is it just me or does it feel artificial that it's this bad?

It seems like the probabilities are being manipulated, isn't it?

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I think it's a good idea. ...... Well, that's not why I donated in the first place, so it's fine.

 It's a good idea, but it's a little frustrating.
 For your information, Yuki also chose darts.
 As for the others, Natsuki was playing the string fishing lottery, Toya was playing the slots, and Haruka was playing the rattles.
 They were more scattered than expected. .......

I'm not sure how you chose to play darts, Haruka. I've been told I'm scary.

"Are you talking about subtle skills?" Hmm, I guess I wasn't too worried about that. I didn't ask for it, but Adversus prepared it from the beginning, and maybe it didn't have any mine skills in it. For example, you see, the benefit I received, even if Nao received it, it would be "subtle", right?

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah.

 It's true that it's meaningless for a man to receive it.
 In fact, I don't want it to be meaningful.
 If the other person is going to be ...... like that, then I guess it has some meaning.

And then there's ...... anyone who has gotten any information from God?
No, not at all. He just said "Hmmm..." and didn't tell me anything.
Me neither. He said, "You don't have the authority to access that information.

 I'm not going to tell you anything about it.

 Either way, you're not going to teach me.

From the benefits we've received, I'm guessing you don't intend to have much of an impact on the world. Those weird benefits in the slots were just a joke.

"God punishes people who use his name to do bad things. And as far as I can tell, there are no other cases.

 For example, there are countries where beastmen are oppressed, where slavery is allowed, and even in this country, there are areas where the weak are oppressed, such as the Barony of Dyas.

 But I have never heard of God doing anything about it.

 It seems to me that God is a bit strict about embezzlement of offerings, but I guess the line is drawn between using his name and not using his name.

 If a country starts saying, "Slavery is allowed by God! If a country starts to say, "Slavery is allowed by God!", it will be punished by God in a big way. .......

If a country starts saying, "God allows slaves! God is not only Adversus.

There may be evil gods, and even Adversus is not necessarily a good god.

"He calls himself an 'evil god'. He's a self-proclaimed "evil god." ...... In moderation, though, he said to me, "See you later.

Is that so? I don't think he said ...... that to me.

'I wonder if I'll get some subtle benefit from you again? It's a bit of a bargain, and I don't mind it.

 I'm sure you've heard of it, but I've never heard of it.
 I'm not sure what to make of that.

 I know it's hard to say with all the healing magic out there, but...

I'm sure you'll be able to figure out the best way to do this. Then there's the "heavy pay" and then ...... the "continuous login" bonus?

That's impossible for us! It's impossible for us to go to the temple every day when we're working.

I know. I don't know much about that kind of stuff, what else is there?

"There are events on anniversaries, anniversaries, collaborations, friend referrals, etc. ......

 To my question, Toya twisted his head and gave me a few examples: .......

I'm sure you'll have a lot of questions. ...... What do you mean, "collaborate"? With other gods?

"Refer-a-friend" is a total religious inducement.

You don't have to think about how many anniversaries you're going to have, but what about the anniversary of ...... Adverstice's birthday?

"Like Christmas? But does God have a birthday?

 None of these seem to work.
 Except for the anniversary.
 And on the first anniversary of the transition, there was nothing.

"I guess I shouldn't think about doing something for ....... It seems useless.

"Right. Besides, Adversus seems to be cynical, and if we dare, he'll exclude us, right?

I guess so. Well, if we get something, we'll just consider ourselves lucky and leave it at that.

 It's all God's whim.

 We decided to act without thinking too much, and that was the end of it.
