381-349 Policy-making meeting (2)

I don't know if we'll be adventurers until we reach that age, though. At the moment, we're doing well in saving up for retirement, and it's safer to retire before we reach our physical limits.

That's right, that's what we're going to do next. If we continue at our current pace, we should be able to save up enough before we reach our physical limit, just like Natsuki said.

Even if you take into account factors such as the fluctuating price of precious woods, you can still make a good amount of money just from what you catch in the forest.

Yeah, as long as we don't spend too much, we'll be able to save enough at this rate.

"Oh, yeah, right?

 We all nodded in agreement to Natsuki's very plausible words, but the only one who seemed to give a subtle reply was Toya.

 The only one who seemed to have a subtle response was Toya, who seemed to have already been caught up in the "as long as it's not extravagant" part.
 I'm not going to pursue it out of warrior's compassion.

 As a man, I understand, and if you make a lot of money every time, I also understand why you might want to spend it.

"So, since there are no problems there, you concluded last time that we should aim as high as we can, right?

That's pretty much it.

 That's what we discussed almost a year ago, before we went deeper into the forest.

 We've been working hard under that policy, and we've been developing our skills and raising our levels reasonably well.

 My current level is 27.

 Considering the number of battles I've fought, the pace seems to be slowing down, but it would be pointless to compare it to the rate of increase when I was a low level player.

 And is my benefit, the "Slightly Increased Experience Value", having any effect on this level-up?

 Another benefit, "Lucky! Similarly, I have no idea.
 I'm sure it's lucky that I'm alive and well now. .......

There have been a few dangerous moments in my life, but I guess that's what ...... work is all about.

Yeah, it's not like you're quitting your job because you've been in danger, is it?

I think it's much safer than the stories I've heard about other adventurers. What about your adventures with Haruka and the others?

In our case, we don't have to push ourselves for money.

 If you don't have enough money for lodging or food tomorrow, you'll have to take on dangerous jobs, but in our case, if we think it's dangerous, we can afford to take time off work to train and prepare.

 This is a big difference.

"Also, I think you mentioned that you wanted to go to ...... dungeon city, how about that?

 He crossed his arms and twisted his head as if thinking.

I don't think we need to go there at the moment. If all you want to do is go to a dungeon, there's always the Dungeon of Escape.

I wanted to experience a dungeon, that was a big part of it. And you were able to achieve that.

Yes. Besides, there's no competition there, so it's safe.

There's no danger of being attacked by other adventurers in the dungeon, and I can do whatever I want. We can do whatever we want in the dungeon without the risk of being attacked by other adventurers, and we don't have to worry about being seen with magic bags or other valuable items.

And if we were to go to a dungeon city, we'd definitely get tangled up, tempestuously. It may also be an experience. ......

 I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one.

 In the event that you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find out more about it here. And they are good looking.

 Even though the two of them are still young, in a world where there are few female adventurers, what man wouldn't be jealous of this situation?

 If it were the other way around, I'd be jealous too, even if I wouldn't get involved.

I'm sure you'll agree that Toya isn't enough of a bulwark.
"...... Oh? Haruka, what about me? I'm here too.

 I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
 I'm not sure what to make of this.

I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how to use it.
It's not like he's going to get into a fight, but he's a nice guy.
I think he's a bit overpowered as a bug repellent for adventurers.
Mmm ...... can't deny that.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing and how you're going to do it.

 Simply being an adventurer would not be enough of a deterrent.
 Toya seems to be easily recognizable, but in my case, his strength includes magic.

 I can't just open fire in the streets, and I can't walk around claiming my slightly higher adventurer rank.

 If the guild card changed color, it would be easy to understand, but since the card only has a mark on it, you can't tell unless you take it out and show it off.

The advantage of going the other way is that it makes it easier to raise your rank as an adventurer. In the case of dungeon cities, there seems to be a lot of requests to the guild to collect materials.

That's true. Even if you collect materials from dungeons here, it doesn't mean you've fulfilled the request. Diora will appreciate it, though.

 The requests lined up at Rafan's guild have been the same since we came here.

 If it was a dungeon city, people would know what kind of materials were available at which level, so there would be requests for those materials.

 The market in Rafan is also small, and the probability of getting a request for collection is low because we are constantly supplying materials.

 If it's Red Strike Ox's milk, which we don't supply, there's still a chance, but it's not something we need that often.

 --No, considering the popularity of Viagra, there may be a lot of people who want it, but the price is the price. Not many people will be able to afford it.

Rank. I wonder which is the bigger advantage or disadvantage of raising my rank. ......?

 I'm sure you've heard of it.

The advantage of our high rank is that it makes it easier for us to defend ourselves, right?
"Yes, from the nobility.

 Commoners and nobles.
 It is the power of the nobility to retract some reasonableness when there is a conflict.

 If the commoner is a high-ranked adventurer, he can be reasoned with to some extent.

 In this country, at least, it seems that the nobility is not absolutely strong.

It's also possible to make a profit from higher commission rates, of course. ...... I'm not really interested in that, as far as I'm concerned.

I don't have any problems at the moment. I'm not in trouble.

 I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot of people who are interested in this.

 If I had to guess, I would say that Toya's goal is to get a beast-eared wife.

 If he finds a good one and marries her, that's it.

 In the first place, a high rank does not necessarily mean a high reward for a simple request, so whether it is good or not is not clear.

 If the reward is high, but you're only given troublesome or dangerous requests, it's not worth much.

The disadvantages are prominence and ...... duty.
Do I have to defend the town?
It's not explicitly stated, though.

 In the event that you have a high rank, you'll be able to get the most out of it.

 In that case, it will be difficult to escape if you have a high rank.

 No, you may be able to escape, but once you abandon the people and run away, even if the town is safe, you won't be able to come back.

 At least, not for me.
 I can't stand the stares of my neighbors.

"But, Nao, can you run away? Aera, Diora, Gantz, and many other people I know are in this town.

 I couldn't help but think about Yuki's words.
 I'm sure you're right, I already know a lot of people in this town.

...... is difficult. But if it is the case, I will run away.

 I'm sure you'll be able to understand why I'm here.

 The most important thing is your family members, no matter what you say.
 If I had a child, I would not hesitate to run away.
 If I had a child, I would not hesitate to run away.

But if we don't get out, we're in trouble! But if we don't get out, we're in trouble!" Wouldn't all the people in the town run away? It's not like Viscount Nenus wouldn't let them evacuate.

That's right. I'm sure it's unwarranted, as it's never happened before.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you. What do you think of Mary and the others?

I don't care if you're with your sisters or not.

I simply think that high ranking adventurers are great. However, some people have a bad impression of adventurers, so I don't think they are respected by everyone. ......

That's true. It depends on the person, right?

 I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not.
 On the other hand, it's scary to be respected by everyone.

If Viscount Nenus can prevent the nobles from intervening, there's no need to force it.

Yeah. I think I'll just go to the dungeon city for sightseeing.

Well, speaking of sightseeing, you mentioned that you wanted to see some other cities, how about ......?


 We were both silent when Haruka asked.
