After I was allowed to delve into the royal capital dungeon by myself, my first priority was deciding on a hunting ground.
There are centipedes in the front part of the shallow floors.
There are monsters in the back that although I can defeat, there are a lot of them, and it’s a little dangerous to hunt alone.
I can’t find quite a suitable place… but when I was wandering around, I found the outermost passage that leads to the upper layer.
It’s a slightly open place, and the monster that appears there is a slightly smaller elephant-sized cow.
I’ve seen other adventurers fighting them. Although they’re few in number, they’re strong and fast on their feet and although they find it hard to turn, their strength that matches their size is quite impressive.
It’s a far detour to enter the upper floors, so it doesn’t seem to be very popular and there are almost no people around.
It’s perfect for me.
So I went there for a while.
The pace slows down because the number of monsters I defeat is small, but I was able to accumulate divine coins smoothly without worrying about my surroundings.
After reaching my target count and returning with excitement, I felt a light emission that I had never seen before in the corner of my vision.
I somehow had a bad feeling but when lowered my altitude, the ceiling exploded and at the same time, I felt a strong pain in my left shoulder, causing the [Floating Orb] to lose its balance.
As I struggled to endure the pain and somehow regain my balance, a strong pain ran through my thigh, and I fell down with my [Floating Orb].
My shoulder was scorched, my thighs were gouged out by arrows and blood was flowing out of me, creating a pool of blood on the ground.
And was there collapsed.
I wondered what had happened, but the pain and blood made me realize I had been attacked.
Is that first thing magic…?
“A-Are you okay!?”
“Do I look like, okay…”
I respond somehow to the voices of the men.
“I-I’ll treat you right away…! You’re gonna be fine, leave it to me!”
I can’t see it very well, but I can tell from the voice and the commotion that he’s quite flustered.
It looks like I can get some treatment.
It’s an injury that doesn’t look pretty, but the magic and other treatments in this world, although I don’t know diseases, they’re effective against injuries and poisons.
It seems unlikely that I will die like this.
But I know!
You’re the ones who attacked me, right!!
Zombie, a corpse that contains magic essence and attacks living things with its instincts.
Wraith, a soul that is mixed with magic essence and has intelligence unlike zombies.
They attack living things without distinguishing between humans, animals, and monsters.
They’re powerful monsters that can’t be fought properly without magic, gacha-made armor, or magic tools, as normal weapons have little effect against them.
Their characteristics are that they don’t exist in dungeons where corpses disappear, they only exist outside. They could be found in monster realms battlefields, and rarely, in slums.
When I first heard of that, my impression was “so souls exist…”.
However, recently, undead have appeared in the shallow floors of the dungeon in the royal capital.
It moves through the air at breakneck speed, reaping the life of monsters.
It seems to have a small black figure, and since it’s in a place where it shouldn’t be, even though no humans have been harmed yet, there’s a high possibility that it’s a so-called boss monster, and if left alone, it can grow into a powerful monster. So it seems they are currently investigating whether to form a subjugation party.
I was also told to be careful at the reception.
It’s all the more because I’m delving alone.
They seem to have heard the information about the undead, so Seliana and Elena also reminded me.
…I never thought it was about me.
After that, I received first aid, and since I was near the exit, I was able to receive full-scale treatment at the guild immediately.
As expected of the adventurer’s guild of the royal capital.
As big as it was, there was a branch of the relief center inside the guild, and the treatment was quick, so there wasn’t even a scar left.
My [Floating Orb] was also collected, and except for the fact that my clothes were in tatters, I’m completely back to usual.
The only thing left is, what to do with these pale uncles…
Sera – [Hideout] [Prayer] [Floating Orb] [Shadow Sword] [6 Divine Coins]
Seliana – [Area Recognition] [ ] [8 Divine Coins]
Elena – [ ] [Green Fang] [0 Divine Coin]
Alex – [ ] [Red Shield] [0 Divine Coin]
