393-361 Re-fight, Elder Trent! (5)

 After picking up the branches as if we were sweeping the square, we finished our work and took a break in front of the clearing.

 As we ate our lunch to recover our strength and magic from the long fight, we looked at the path that Elder Trent had blocked.

The boss is down, but are there any treasure chests?

If the pattern is correct, there should be a treasure chest and a transition zone, but ...... the fact that there are multiple bosses on the same level is out of the pattern.

 In the event that you've got a lot of time, you'll be able to take a look at a few of the best ways to get the most out of your time.

 What you can see from here is a slightly uphill path that leads to a chasm, but the chasm is also slightly crooked, so you can't see what's beyond it.

Like the treasure chest, you're going to want a transition team when you're this worn out.
Gargoyle's place is pretty far away.
"But I'm curious about that end.

 But I'm curious about that place." Mitya said, sitting up and moving her toes.
 Mary nodded to Mitya, but pressed her shoulder to calm her down.

I agree with you, but Mee, let's just rest for now.
You know that.
I know," she said, "but you never know what might happen. At least here we won't be caught by surprise.

 A clearing.

 We don't have any place to hide either, but considering the demons that are in the area, we feel safer here.

 After that, we all rested for a few hours, sitting or lying down on the couches, somewhat fidgety.

 After Yuki and I had recovered our magic power to the point where it was no longer a problem, we got up to leave.

 We head for a clearing.
 Our goal is to see what's beyond it.

 No matter what, we're going to set up a transition point and head back. ...... I hope there's a treasure chest and a transition point.

 I hope there are treasure chests and transition points. It's going to be mentally difficult to go back to the gargoyle for days.

"Down this time.
"Right. It looks like the road turns and leads down.

 It was only a short distance up from the plaza.

 It soon turned into a descent, and the path seemed to have been carved out of the sheer rock, winding gently down.

...... Oh, I can hear the sound of the waterfall. I knew that the river was a waterfall.

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

"If you could go down the river and go through, who wouldn't choose that one?
That's true. Especially after the fight with Elder Trent, I strongly agree.

 Mary smiles a little tiredly at my words.

 Considering the time and cost involved, I'd rather go down the river, even if it's a bit risky, if I can make it down alive.

 I don't think I could survive falling down a waterfall.

I wonder if I could make a glider that could fly over waterfalls.
Maybe, as long as it doesn't send flying gars or anything.
...... You're right, there are demons out there.

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it, but I'm going to try.

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

Well, we didn't have to do such a reckless thing, we've already defeated it. We can leave a transfer point at the end of the path, so we won't have to worry about Elder Trent coming back.

That's right. If you can sell Elder Trent for a good price, I think it would be a good idea to have a rematch when he comes back. ......

Mm, rematch. ....... I need to level up, too.

 I think I'll be able to sell it at a higher price when it comes back.
 And Toya isn't the only one who needs it.

 We can use disposable items like explosive arrows to kill them, but if we're going to go around and kill them, we want to be able to do it on our own.

The best thing to do would be for Nao and Yuki to become proficient in space-time magic. ....... I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure you can do it.

I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea. I've been doing a lot of research on that. ......

Actually, I read that it's tough to use against living things.

 In the event that you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to ask your doctor.

 In other words, you interrupt your own magic power into the part of the body where the opponent's magic power is, and take control of that part of the body.

 In other words, it is like taking something that your opponent is holding tightly from a distance without touching it.

 It is easy to imagine how difficult this would be.

 In other words, even if the spell had been cast in time when you first encountered the gargoyle, the probability that it would not have worked is probably higher.

It seems that inanimate objects are not affected. ......

"The grimoire said, 'If you don't have a compatible alchemist who can make a magic bag, you can work in the quarry and get paid the wages of dozens of people! That's what it said.

That's not surprising, considering the labor involved in cutting stone by hand.

 There is no such thing as power tools, and masonry involves roughly breaking the stone and preparing the surface by hand.

 The amount of time and effort it takes to do this is enormous, but with the use of the "space divider" it can be flattened in an instant.

 It may depend on the amount of magic power you have, but even if you paid the wages of dozens of people, it would probably pay for itself.

I'm not sure what to make of this.

 I'm not sure what to make of that.

I'm not sure what to make of that. It's something between a plant and a demon.
I've read that you can get by with golems if you work hard enough.

 However, Elder Torrent seems to be impossible.
 At least not with my current level of magic and skill.

I'm sure you'll be able to find a way to make it work.

"Oh, no. Most of the time it can be resisted.

Don't be scared! Don't do it, okay? Don't do it, okay? I'm not pretending, all right?

I'm not. Toya may be safe, but his belongings are not.

 I mean, clothes.
 I don't want to see Toya's treasure on display.
 And if I involve the ladies, Haruka will kill me.

...... Oh, I see. That makes you feel better? I'm sure.

But then, does that mean that the magic of space division will easily break weapons and such?

No, not really. For example, the attribute steel weapon we are using. It's impossible to break a weapon with magic power passing through it.

The same goes for chainmail. So, in reality, there is little danger that we will be able to do anything about the spatial division.

 In other words, Toya's treasure has been averted. That's good.

It's a good thing that Toya's treasure trove has been averted. "Other than that, it seems to be difficult to find normal clothes that are close to the body. ...... unless you're dealing with a very high ranking wizard.

 It's just a small part of our world.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 We can't say that there aren't people who can sever the connection.

"Well, the rematch with Elder Trent will be a future issue. Has anyone found the reward for defeating the boss or the transfer team?

 Everyone shook their heads at Haruka's question.

No, sir.

There's nothing?

We've already walked more than a few hundred meters from the boss area, right? Maybe there's nothing?

I was hoping for a transition zone at least. ......

Yeah, it was pretty big, the forest area.

 I guess we'll have to go back that way after all.
 This path is also quite long. ...... Where does it lead to once we get past the rocky mountains?

After the mountain area and the forest area, what's next, the plains?

I don't know. It's a dungeon. You can't always predict what you'll find in a dungeon. ...... Oh, it looks like you're through. --Oh, this is .......

Oh, .......

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but I think it's a good idea.
 I wondered for a moment, but as I stood next to them, I soon found out why.
 Suddenly, my vision opened up brightly.

 What lay there was the ocean.
