432-400 The moon (5)

 After reaching the eastern shore of Sarstat, Haruka and the others immediately left the town and headed east along the road.

 And immediately there was the border between the Viscount Domain of Nenus and the Barony of Ornik.

 However, as the two noble families were not in conflict with each other within the same country, the only thing that indicated this was a stone monument placed on the side of the road.

 If you go further, you will see the town of Kiura.

 It is a smaller town than Laffan, but it is the only town in the Barony of Ornik.

 There are several other village-level settlements scattered around, but none compare to the size of the territory and population of Viscount Nenus. That is the Barony of Ornik.

 When Haruka and his friends entered the town of Kiura, they were a bit confused by their first visit to the town, but they soon found the adventurer's guild and visited it.

 The guild's building and the bustling atmosphere were more like Raffan and less like Kerug.

 Considering the size of the town, it's quite impressive, but that's largely due to the fact that it's the only town in the Barony of Ornik.

 It's no surprise that the small village doesn't have an adventurer's guild, and the neighboring town of Sarstat is not an adventurer's guild at all, but rather a brothel.

 If you want to make a request in this area, you have to come here.

 Because of this, there were a good number of requests posted on the guild's bulletin board, but Haruka and the others didn't pay attention to them and went straight to the counter. They presented their guild cards and approached the receptionist.

I have a few questions for you, if that's okay.
"Well, ....... Yes, you can ask me anything.

 When she saw the rank on Haruka's guild card, the receptionist's eyes widened and she answered immediately with a smile.

 It's no wonder that a rank of six is almost impossible to find in a small town like Kiura, and from the guild's point of view, it's like a valuable asset.

 Inevitably, the guild would deal with them very differently from low rank adventurers.

 Hulka and his friends think that guild rank is not very useful, but when they visit a new town like this, guild rank has a great effect on them.

I'm looking for the flower of Ovnia. I've heard that it's in the north woods, do you know where the spring is?

Wait a moment, please!

 She quickly rummaged through her papers and found a map, which she presented to Haruka and the others.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not. But you're in a hurry to ...... find out where the Obunia grows on this one, aren't you?

"Yes. I'm sure you know that, but we need it to treat Gresco's fever.

And this map doesn't show the exact location. Do you have a more detailed map?

 In a sense, it was only natural that Yuki would complain. The map that was presented to us was quite rough, and only gave us a rough idea of the location and number of springs.

 If you are a low rank adventurer, you can only get a more general map that shows you where the springs are.

 If you are a low rank adventurer, all you can do is point to the map and say, "It is said to be in this area." Since there is no one who can make a detailed map in the first place, it is no wonder that the map is of this level.

I'm sorry, but this is the best we can offer. ....... "If the members of Jade Feather were here, we could show you around. ......

"Is that a party of adventurers from this town?

Yes! We are the best adventurers in this town! It's a party of only women, but they're working very hard! They're also very strong and can use magic.

 But Haruka and her friends don't have the time to listen to this, so Haruka quickly interjects into the gaps in Saara's story.

I'm sure you'll be able to figure out where the spring is.

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

"So, do the Jade Feathers know the location of the spring where the Ovnia flowers are?

"I don't know, but I think they can at least lead us to the spring. Also, I believe that some of the springs have had their water quality altered by the construction of the reservoirs. ......

 Baron Ornick conducted a survey to find a suitable location for the reservoir and to minimize its impact on the rest of the area, but as the mountain was cut down and the water from the spring was drawn in to create the reservoir, it could not be completely unaffected.

 As a result, some of the springs in the area were drying up and the water quality was deteriorating, but the Adventurer's Guild did not have any detailed information about this.

"So, where are the jade feathers?"

"I'm working overnight at ...... tomorrow at the earliest. He probably won't be back for a few days at the earliest.

That's not enough time!

He was almost two years old when I saw him, but still, ......

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

 I'm not sure what to do.
 "If we wait for the return of the jade feather, it will be a full day at best.

 If we're not careful, we'll spend more than a few days in idleness, and considering the baby's physical strength, that delay is not something to be optimistic about.

 But gresco fever is usually not something to worry about.
 Sarla tilted her head a little curiously.

Did a young child get it?
Yes, newborns.
That's very, very unusual.

 Sarla swallowed the word 'impossible' that had almost escaped her.

 But in fact, the majority of deaths from Gresco fever occur when the patient is under one year old, and when it is a newborn, the situation is usually quite hopeless.

 Yes, it's normal.

I'm sure there's someone with recovery magic on the way.

"Well! That's very extravagant - no, I guess it's possible for a high-ranked adventurer.

 Thinking about the income of a high-ranked adventurer, Saara nodded approvingly.

 The only ones who are actually sick are the children of the high-ranking adventurer's acquaintances, but Haruka and the others didn't bother to correct that.

"...... All right! I'm done copying!

 I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's a fan of your work.

 She knew that no matter what, there was no harm in having a map, so she proceeded with her work while listening to Saara.

 Perhaps it was the effect of his skills, but the precision of his work was incomparable to the original map.
 Although it was unclear how useful it would be, since the original map was not very accurate.

Let's go! Sister, if I can't find you, I'll come back.

"Yes, ma'am. I'm sure you guys don't need to worry about it, but the forest is full of orcs, so please be careful. Also, please be careful with that map.

"Of course. Thank you for your help.

""Thank you very much."

 Haruka and the others thanked each other and left the guild quickly, leaving the town behind and entering the forest.
