Chapter 276 – Upper limit up
While I was preparing for my next job, Celeste suddenly rushed to me and called.
[What happened] (Ryouta)
[There’s a Dungeon Master sighted in Plumbum Dungeon.
Can you go and defeat it] (Celeste)
[I got it……Huh] (Ryouta)
Agreeing, I wanted to leave my room and headed towards the Transportation Room, but then I suddenly remembered something.
[What’s wrong] (Celeste)
[About the Plumbum Dungeon Master….
Didn’t everyone defeat it without me] (Ryouta)
[Yeah, everyone had a Bromide and managed to defeat it.
However, the use of Bromide has been researched more and more, and that’s getting higher……….] (Celeste)
[So nobody is using it casually] (Ryouta)
Celeste slightly nodded.
I kinda get it.
It’s like when you have an elixir in a game, and you want to save it for an important boss fight, but ended up not using it at all and still managed to defeat the boss.
I understand this feeling of not using an expensive item…………really well.
[I got it, it would be best for me to go and defeat it then.] (Ryouta)
I quickly head to the Teleportation Room.
[Which floor is the Dungeon Master at] (Ryouta)
[At the time at which I returned, it was at the third floor.] (Celeste)
Since we’ve gone through all the floors, I can just go to that floor immediately.
After entering the room, the air around me immediately changed into that of a Dungeon Master being in the floor.
Looking around——–and found it.
There were no other monsters, only the Dungeon Master・Ryo-sama is there.
Wondering if it’s just me, but the body and head of Ryo-sama has risen.
Roughly nine heads higher, the perfect height for a main character in a shoujo manga.
It becoming more cool is making me more complicated about looking at it.] (Ryouta)
The Dungeon Master looked exactly like the drawing from Plumbum—– In other words, her drawing has improved once again.
Ryo-sama noticed me, and held his gun.
By the way, him holding it was also cool looking, as he held it sideways.
(TLN: Which is impractical mind you)
I wanted to know how Ryo-sama would move, but then it would inconvenient the other adventurers who just want to earn a living, so I just defeated it immediately.
However, my body felt heavy.
Since Repetition’s MP depends on the strength of the enemy, this Dungeon Master roughly emptied my SS MP.
Thinking that, I fired the Infinite Recovery Bullet onto myself to recovery my MP.
[Oh, the key.] (Ryouta)
After Ryo-sama disappeared, it dropped a rusty key.
I picked up the key, then returned to the mansion using the gate.
Celeste was waiting for me outside the room.
[Welcome home.] (Celeste)
[I’m back, and I’ve defeated it.] (Ryouta)
[Thank you, I know only Ryouta-san can do it.] (Celeste)
[So, what are you going to do now Celeste Are you gonna head back again] (Ryouta)
I don’t think there’s anything to worry, but still be careful.] (Ryouta)
It’s because there’s that Dungeon Master there, where unlike the other dungeons’ Dungeon Masters—– This Ryo-sama can continue to evolve.
This may be dependent on the mod of Plumbum.
Oh no, there might be a day where even the normal monsters would evolve to look like me.
…..No no, I’m thinking too much, that’s impossible… Yeap.
Well leaving that aside, since the monster might become stronger, it’s best to warn Celeste about it.,
[Thank you for the concern, I’ll watch myself.] (Celeste)
Celeste then returned to Plumbum using the gate with a cherry blossom smile.
Well then, time to head to the basement.
Changing my schedule, I wanted to test something.
To do that, I must first change this rusty key into a golden key.
Walking along the corridor, I continued onward to the basement.
Passing in front of Celeste room, I noticed that the door was half open.
[She’s so careless…….] (Ryouta)
Murmuring to myself, I tried to close the door by holding onto the doorknob.
However, I could see something from the gap.
It was the usual room with stuffed animals placed neatly—–was what I thought, but that wasn’t it.
Like a doll standing there, there were 2 Ryo-sama standing in place as can be seen from the door gap.
Why are there——
[……Alright, let’s just think of it as I didn’t see anything.
The moment various imaginations ran through my head, I decided to stop.
I don’t know why Celeste is doing this.
[No wonder she would know when a Dungeon Master appeared in Plumbum, since she’s being going there so frequently.
Alright, let’s leave it at that.] (Ryouta)
While trying to justify myself, I closed the door firmly and went to the basement.
Putting the rusty key at the end of the basement, I waited for the key to turn into a rogue monster, then defeated it with Repetition.
This time, the key became a golden key.
This is the 2nd one.
I took out the first one from before and twisted both keys.
Then, a door came out.
The letter “02” appeared on the door.
So I was right after all That the mechanism increases the number of keys I have
The rest is knowing the meaning of this number.
I went out of the basement, then shouted in the mansion.
[Is anyone home] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu~] (Emily)
Emily then came out from the salon.
[Oh you’re here Emily.] (Ryouta)
[Yes desu, today’s home cleaning day desu.] (Emily)
[Is that so.
I’m sorry but could you help me test something] (Ryouta)
[Of course that’s okay desu.
What should I do desu] (Emily)
I said as I twisted the key.
Then the door appeared.
[Wah, that surprised me desu.] (Emily)
[Could you enter this door] (Ryouta)
[Okay desu.] (Emily)
Emily opened the door and went inside without any hesitation.
Without being able to say anything, she just went in.
Then, the number of the door changed from “02” to “01”.
[Ryouta-san, did you call just now]
This time, Elza appeared from within the mansion.
[Sorry Elza, but can you help me to test with something] (Ryouta)
Is it something to do with this door] (Elza)
[I’m happy that you know what I want.
Yeah, I just want you to get in.
I’ve already confirmed with Alice that it’s safe.] (Ryouta)
[I understand.] (Elza)
[Check if Emily is inside as well.] (Ryouta)
Again, she accepted so easily, but she didn’t enter as quickly as Emily did, as she gave some precautions.
Then, just like Emily, she entered.
The number change from “01” to “00”.
Apparently, the number of keys = to the number of people who can enter.
