hy don’t we just explore it without telling anyone?”

“Idiot, didn’t you hear what I just said?”

 Even though Orto and the others were discussing with difficult faces, Pluriel crossed her arms and turned her face towards us.

”As soon as we report that there is a dungeon, we can get a group of knights to be sent out right away, right? Besides, with Master Van’s magic, we’ll have our infrastructure and facilities built in no time.”

 I chuckle at such a question.

“I’m a nuisance, you know.
They will simply kick me out and replace me if they find out that this territory has so much value.
That’s why I need to find a dungeon after I’ve made a large enough achievement or contribution so that they think I am valuable enough to keep my job.”

 When I replied, Pluriel raised her eyebrows in consternation.

”….I see.
Then it can’t be helped.”

 She replied and turned to Orto and the others.

“Let’s all just gather resources and forget about the dungeon for now,”

“Oh? Uh, yeah.
Got it.”


 Orto and the others easily agreed with our wishes.
For an adventurer, discovering a new dungeon is a great achievement.
Furthermore, if they reported it, they could dive into the dungeon at the same time as the adventurer’s guild investigators arrived.

 In other words, you can be the first to search for the dungeon’s treasures.
In terms of mapping out the inside of the dungeon, the people who search first are at a huge advantage.

 It was probably an act of altruism that Orto and his comrades agreed to not go off to discover the dungeon.
After all, even though it would have been unimaginably profitable, they still chose to put the village’s interests before theirs.

 I have a similar duty to Orto.
In my case, in order to bring prosperity to the country and riches to all of the landed nobility, I am obligated to report any dungeons that I find in my territory.

 However, I have my position to consider.
I am currently viewed as being worthless and as someone with no future.
If I report that I found a dungeon, one of my brothers will make me give up my territory.

 So, I must first make this village my own.

 With renewed determination, I pick up the piece of iron ore that was laid out on the ground.

 When I focused my magic power on the iron ore, I found that my magic was able to permeate and enter the inside of the metal.
In the case of the wood, it penetrated as if crawling through many layers of trenches evenly, but in the case of the iron ore, it was divided into two parts: a layer where the magic power a while to penetrate and a core where it penetrated instantly.

 On a whim, I turned the part that was easier to penetrate into a fine sand and separated it from the rest of the iron ore.

 Something metallic, and only a third of the original size, was left behind.

“To think that we’ve already acquired iron!”

 He heard Orto’s surprise and looked up.

“Although we have it, we can’t melt it down and remove its impurities, so I can’t tell how good it would be as a material.”

 As I responded, Ksara pointed to the iron with a glint in his eyes.

“Would you building me a sword with it to test it out, then? It would be good if the sword if you make the sword to be thin and double-edged!”

 The other adventurers blinked in confusion when Ksara said that.

”Did that guy like swords so much?”

“Something’s been wrong with him since last night.”

“Do you think the weapons the kid makes will sell for a lot of money later?”

 Everyone else still didn’t know that Kamsin and Till’s wooden weapons were abnormally sharp.

 Kasara smiled wryly, then laughed with an evil look on his face.

 Well, I felt sorry about the leather shield, so I humored him.

”Well, it will be one gold coin for the dagger.
Two gold coins for a long sword.”

“So cheap! Then I’ll order one dagger and long sword each, please!”

 It was a quick decision.
I think the total price is around 1 to 2 million yen.

 While I calculated the price, Orto and the others’ expressions were subtle.

”Isn’t it a bit pricey?

I know.
They are just iron weapons, right? Generally, they would go for about five to eight large silver coins.

 What an expensive price… is what they must be thinking.

 But Ksara opens his mouth with a deepening smile.

”Hmph… I don’t know if I’ll regret it.
Then, boy.
I’ll give you three gold coins.”

 Ksara happily brought out three gold coins and paid me with them, and while I began to visualize the weapons I would make, I touched the iron.

 Now that I have enough materials, I can start making the first item, a dagger.

 Now, how shall I make it?
