Two days after successfully activating [Prayer].
We were finally ready to head to the dungeon.
Unlike the dungeon of Zerkis, where only humanoid monster species appear, the dungeons here in the capital are said to be one of the most difficult dungeons on this continent, with all kinds of monsters such as humanoid monsters, magical beasts, and magical insects appearing.
The structure of the dungeon seems to be the same as other dungeons, from shallow floors to deep floors, but the strength and density of the monsters that appear are on an order of magnitude higher, and even the shallow floors are comparable to other middle floors of others.
Looking from above, there are several parties fighting at a distance.
The same goes for the wideness inside.
Most of the shallow floors in other dungeons are about 4-5 meters in height and width, but here the height is nearly twice as high and the width is even more than that.
It seems that Alex had challenged this royal capital dungeon before coming to Zerkis.
He managed to reach the middle of the shallow floors by himself.
Even if he formed a party, he seem to be only able to go so far, about to reach the upper floors, and gave up.
Of course, his skill and equipment are different now compared to that time, but it can still show how tough this place is.
The yearly maintenance cost seems to be over 500 here compared to 210 divine coins in Zerkis.
Therefore, it is necessary to pay 10 divine coins first to get permission to enter the dungeon.
Of course, it would be different if it was a noble or was recommended by one.
However, that alone tells you how difficult this dungeon is.
“…Sera, it’s over. Come down!”
Yes. This dungeon is terrible.
“…are you okay?”
Seeing me coming down from the ceiling that I was clinging to, I feel that Alex’s voice was mixed with a little exasperation.
It was right after we entered the royal capital dungeon.
A group of 2-meter-long centipedes appeared crawling on the wall.
This is a story about my childhood in my previous life.
I once got bitten on the foot by a centipede and had a really painful experience.
Since then, I was afraid of centipedes.
I don’t really like insects in general, but centipedes are the worst.
That’s why I was running away to the ceiling while half crying…
“Y-Yeah…! Super easy!”
Un, barely an inconvenience.
Rather, if I let my guard down, I might end up laughing and screaming.
“I see… well, don’t push yourself, okay? …mm?”
Noticing something, Alex stopped moving and turned his face forward.
‘What is it?’ I thought while looking over there, and found several people were running up towards us.
If I remember correctly, they were the adventurers who were fighting nearby.
“We’re from Reed Warriors.”
He let go of his weapon and raised his hand to introduce themselves.
This is a practice established by the guild, as they don’t want people to die inside dungeons, to avoid disputes between adventurers.
I was told that in Zerkis, there are opportunities to use it mainly in the middle floors and beyond, but as expected of the royal capital dungeon… I didn’t expect to see it on the shallow floors.
What did they come for?
We were close, but we shouldn’t have been close enough where our battle areas would overlap.
“Alex from House Müller.”
Alex responds in the same way.
“Müller… from Zerkis!? ……we heard a scream… are you okay?”
He says while looking at me.
…so it was my fault.
“Ah, this is her first time seeing a monster bug, so she was surprised… I’m sorry for making a fuss.”
“Sorry for that~.”
I also apologized, followed by a wink with a horizontal peace sign.
“I-I see… well, it’s great that you are fine.”
After saying that, the members of the Reed Warriors returned to their original place.
I feel sorry when I think about the fact that they rushed over after hearing my screams.
I decided that if they are in trouble, I should lend them my strength…
“Sera… are you really okay?”
Elena called out to me with a worried expression.
So did Alex.
Well, to be honest, my current tension is a bit crazy.
I am aware of it, but I can’t help it.
I let out a funny laugh and spread my hands out in front of the two as if to show off.
Show of what?
Of course, it’s the five divine coins I got earlier.
Sera – [Hideout] [Prayer] [Floating Orb] [Shadow Sword] [5 Divine Coin]
Seliana – [Area Recognition] [ ] [4 Divine Coins]
Elena – [ ] [Green Fang] [0 Divine Coin]
Alex – [ ] [Red Shield] [0 Divine Coin]
