There was a silent pressure telling me “Don’t let this get to your head.
”…Even Shisuha who was elated that we’re going hunting, suddenly muffled down and became docile.
[So what’s our manastone situation right now?]
[After rolling the Item Gacha we are currently sitting on 596 manastones.]
[We still have a reasonable amount.]
4 more and we’ll have 600.
That’s the same as being able to do the 11 consecutive roll 12 times.
We can already roll some Gacha as is right now.
However, it’s also possible that an event like the 33 consecutive roll might happen, so we shouldn’t feel relaxed just because we have some stock of manastones on hand.
How happy would I be if we had them in the thousands.
One of these days I’d like to be able to roll the Gacha without any restrictions… but I also get the feeling that I’ll lose something important if I did that.
[Nnー, for now let’s trace our roots and try going back to “that” forest.]
It’s been a while since we returned to Brunne.
Why don’t we pay a visit to that forest of orcs.
Back then we came to the forest on foot, but now that we have the Flying Carpet it takes no time at all to arrive.
Along the way I noticed several adventurer dots on my map, but we avoided them as we traveled.
I haven’t come here in a long time, the goblins still roam around the entrance of the forest.
This place didn’t change one bit.
[Ugu… I’m starting to remember what happened back then…]
[Uhmm, I really should apologize about that time.]
When we were about to enter the forest, Noru was reminded of a certain “happening” in the past and hesitated to enter.
I feel awful when I think about what I did back then… So let’s not repeat the same mistake again.
Though Shisuha might actually be happy to do what we did that time.
[They aren’t very tough despite having such big bodies.]
[Even if you say that as you eviscerate them… They weren’t much of a challenge to us during our low level times either.]
Shisuha uses her staff and lightly pokes at an orc that happened to jump out.
The orc’s entire torso disappeared despite the staff hitting the orc’s head.
That’s so overkill… though when I think about it, our current levels are much higher compared to the past.
If we tried to hunt efficiently here now… we were already one hit killing stuff here back then.
In the sense of not needing to worry about getting hurt, it might be relaxing to hunt here.
[Thinking back, we stopped at finding the respawn points that time, so it has me wondering what’s in the deeper parts of this forest?]
[No idea? Won’t it just be yet more forest?]
We didn’t go very deep into the forest the last time we hunted here.
The forest looks to be quite wide when I look at it on the map.
There aren’t that many respawn points either, does that mean that there might be something in the deeper part of the forest?
[Exploring feels interesting too! Okura-dono, let us attempt to reach the deepest areas!]
[There’s this feeling of excitement like we’re having an adventure! It would be double the fun if there were stronger enemies too.]
[I’m not a fan of forests due to all the bugs and stuff… but I can’t say I’m not having fun too.]
Noru and the girls were enthusiastic enough in wanting to delve deeper into the forest.
I have my Map App, and the Beacon for us to return has been set up so there’s totally no worries about getting lost inside the forest.
We haven’t done any sort of exploration up til now, is being able to lament about that something I can be happy about? I’m not exactly thrilled about encountering strong monsters, but I don’t think that there will be any of those here.
I don’t like bugs either, but I feel like I don’t mind seeing what’s inside of the forest.
Maybe we can find some event which has an item reward like what happened with the Prime Subjugation.
[Nn? What’s this?]
[What’s the matter Onii-san?]
[Ah, have a look at this.]
After progressing for awhile, a small black circle appeared on my map.
It’s strange because I’m pretty sure it wasn’t there before on the overworld map, it only appeared when we are this close to it… What does this mean?
[I wonder what that means?]
[Maybe there’s something at that spot and we should go there?]
Uーmu… I haven’t heard of anything like this regarding the forest before, there shouldn’t be any humans in a forest full of roaming monsters either.
To be displayed on the map app like this, as if it’s telling us to go there… that’s somewhat scary.
[We wouldn’t know what it is no matter how much we rack our heads here, let’s go have a look.]
There would have been no “Let’s go have a look” option when there was only me and Noru, but we are now a party of 4.
We should be able to respond to anything that may come our way.
Alright then, nothing ventured nothing gained.
[Hーmm? What is this?]
[It looks like an entrance.]
After a long walk, we arrived at the mysterious spot marked on the map.
There, a dome of soil bulged out from the ground and it had a large hole in it.
The hole is easily big enough for a human to go through.
You could only see darkness when you tried to peer into the hole, it gave a feeling of sucking you in.
Perhaps it’s a path that leads underground?
[This… doesn’t this feel like the Labyrinth?]
[The Labyrinth? …it certainly feels similar.]
It definitely felt unnatural just like how the Labyrinth entrance was.
It is something foreign compared to the surroundings, and is something that suddenly appeared… That’s the kind of vibes it is giving off.
Hrーmm… should we go in? There might be monsters inside just like the Labyrinth.
…I guess we’ll go in and have a look inside, confirm what monsters appear inside then decide on our next course of action.
