365-333 Into the rocky mountains (4)

 The next day, we had rock shell soup for breakfast.

 It was delicious grilled, but even in soup, the rock shells were tasty enough to naturally motivate us.

 We went down the slope, securing rock shells whenever we could find them.

 Of course, rock golems also appeared, but they were worthless and were now just obstacles.

 Yes, in the literal sense of the word, an obstacle. A barricade.

 Yesterday, I used the wreckage of a few golems to put up a barricade that would stop a car from driving into it, but whether it would really work is a mystery. ......

 Unlike the round rocks that tend to be traps in dungeons that simply roll around, golems have legs. I'm afraid that I might be able to get over it.

 While we were doing this, we were making our way deeper into the dungeon, but around noon that day, a change finally appeared.

 The golem appeared as usual, and was hit by the impact hammer as usual.
 The sound it made was distinctly different from the previous ones.

 The sound was different. was replaced by a slightly harder sound. a slightly harder sound.

 At the same time, a voice came out of Mary's mouth as she held the hammer.

It's too hard!

 But the result was still the same, it still fell down with a single blow, but if you look closely at the wreckage, you can see that it is a different color.


...... Yeah, it's a Stone Golem.

Subtle difference? When a stone gets big, it's not a rock? It didn't change in size.

 In the event that you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find it on the web.

Haruka, can you brighten the light a bit?
Yes, sir.

 In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, there are a number of things you can do.

 The difference between a rock golem and a stone golem is clear.

 The rock golem was made of brownish rock, while the stone golem was more whitish.

 The Stone Golem was made of a material similar to granite, and when Natsuki tapped it with her pick, it sounded a little harder than rock.

What did you think of it, Mary?
"It was hard, of course, but I think it was a little bit faster.
I mean, it hurts to be hit. I'm not happy about that.

"No, wait, Nao. This wreckage isn't like the Rock Golem, it's for sale.
What's for sale at ......?
"The stone." Well, it's too heavy, so not many adventurers seem to be collecting it.

 I'm not sure if it's worth it or not.
 I don't know if it's worth it.
 If you have a surplus of magic bags, it's usually not worth the effort.

And if you fought them normally, wouldn't they be too big to be used as stone?

You have to be able to break the magic stone. ....... You want to give it a try?

...... Yeah. There's only one Impact Hammer, so we should be prepared for more than one to appear.

It might be a good rehearsal for the gargoyle battle.

 In the event that you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find a lot more information on the web.

 It took me a long time to get the stone, and I couldn't sell it, and the magic stone was broken, so I made nothing. The result was zero.

 On top of that...

My ears hurt so much. ......
Oh, if I'm going to fight, I'm going to need some earplugs, seriously.

 In the event that you have any questions concerning where and the best way to get in touch with your loved ones, you can call us at the web site.

 The sound of a hammer being slammed into stone at close quarters was quite damaging.

And the weapons are already dull, probably because they are cheap.
Yeah. Maybe I saved a little too much.

 Since we weren't planning on using the weapon on a regular basis, we were using a reasonably priced off-the-shelf weapon that we got from Gantz-san.

 The quality is worth the price, because the price is different from the usual weapons.

 The war hammer I was using was already crushed on one of its sharp ends due to repeated strikes on the stone golem.

 Although it is not as flat as it should be, there is a clear difference compared to the beginning.
 The damage inflicted is also considerably reduced.

I don't have any earplugs, but Mitya and Mary, do you want to cover your cheeks? It might reduce some of the damage.

"Well, yes. That might be better.

 It seems that you are able to keep your ears down, but when you are in a state of excitement, such as during a battle, your ears stand up straight and it is a little difficult to keep them down.

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

 ...... Yeah, it's not great.
 You look like a farmer's grandmother.

I'll take it.

 In the event that you have any questions concerning where and the best way to get in touch with your loved ones, you can call us at the web site.

 Now that's what I call a noodle shop guy. Or a carpenter.

Yeah, this one's better.
"Oh, yeah? It's easier for me to move around, too.

 Mary and Mitya are doing the same thing with Natsuki and Yuki.
 You can say that they were cute, but this one is usually cuter.
 --I mean, they beat me to it.
 I wanted to do it. This was my chance to touch her ears.
 No, I'm sure she'd let me touch her ears if I asked, but she's a girl.
 It's like saying, "Let me touch your hair because it looks nice to the touch.
 If you don't have a close relationship with the person, you are just a pervert.
 That's why I'm careful about it.
 Instead, I touch Toya's sometimes.
 I am grateful that Toya understands me, because he also likes animal ears.

 However, he said, "I don't like to be touched by men! He only lets me touch him occasionally, though.

"Mitya-chan, do you have any pain in your ears?
"I'm fine. Thank you, Natsuki!
How is the sound? Is it getting any better?
It's nice not to have to pay attention to my ears.

But it might affect our search for the enemy a bit. ...... Nao, you got it?
Copy that, ....... We're getting closer as we speak.
Oh, let's see if it works!

 In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, there are a few things you can do.

 On the third day, a fork appeared in the pathway, with Toya taking the lead in eliminating them.
 There is an upward direction and a downward direction.

 In all probability, the downward direction would lead to the boss room with the gargoyles, but considering the danger of golems rolling up from behind, it was difficult to ignore the upward direction.

 Because it's a dungeon, even if you eliminate all the demons, they'll come back after a while, but that doesn't mean you can't leave them behind.

 Taking these risks into consideration, all of us discussed for a while, and decided that it was getting cold outside the dungeon, and we had plenty of food. There's no need to rush, so let's just take our time and check it out,' we decided.

 Fortunately, the map was clearly marked with an incline, so we mapped the map in the upward direction, eliminating golems and rock shells as we went.

 Thanks to the impact hammer, fighting is easy, but going up and down the slope all the time is hard, and the fact that all the demons are not worth money even if you kill them is killing my motivation.

 The only saving grace is the Rock Shell, but it appears less frequently than the Golem.

 However, as if to give us a helping hand, on the fifth day, a treasure chest appeared in front of us for the first time in a long time.
