Nihonium Dungeon, basement first floor.
I was firing the Growth Bullet at the Skeletons who were chasing after me.
After the Skeleton was defeated, the usual drop for the HP seed did not drop.
Because Nihonium isn’t inside her dungeon, even my power up seeds won’t drop at all.
Wait, that’s not the issue right now.
The problem I’m having is to have a normal drop for this dungeon.
To have Nihonium’s wishes of being ‘useful’ to others, I need to have normal adventurers coming in here getting normal drops.
Thinking of ways to do it, I thought of doing the [breeding] method which I’ve done previously.
Using the unique ability of the Dungeon Master, you can change the structure of the monsters, and even the drops they give.
However, I think Nihonium said that she can’t do that.
As per what she said: “The damage is too severe, thus I did not do that.”
Speak of the devil.” (Ryouta)
The air around me changed, and the Dungeon Master appeared.
It’s a 160 centimetre girl.
Her hair was around 2 metres long, so long in fact that the hair was touching the ground.
Fortunately, her important parts were covered by the hair that she has, which in itself gave off a strange feeling.
An expressionless girl with pale skin which gives off just a little phosphorescent.
It fits the usual undead types that we have in this dungeon.
I went straight towards her.
The moment I was close to her range, she uses her sharp nails to scratch me.
The feeling of my skin being torn by her nails courses throughout my body.
Nihonium’s Dungeon Master.
Usually it has no fixed entity, but when it attacks, it would form a body.
Thus, that is the only time in which you can attack it.
Last time, it was extremely difficult to defeat, but right now, even her full attack didn’t really leave as much of scratch.
When she attacks, I dodge it and fired once, then rinse and repeat till about 5 shots later, she was defeated.
The Dungeon Master disappears, and the air around me went back to normal.
It didn’t change——- And the reason why we can’t do the breeding technique, is because not only does NIhonium not get any drops (which they don’t to begin with), the entire city of Shikuro’s dungeon won’t get any drops either.
Usually, the monsters would disappear when the Dungeon Master appears.
But for Nihonium’s case, its effect would spread to every other dungeons in Shikuro.
That’s why, if I try to use the breeding technique for Nihonium, I would cost the rest of the production line for Shikuro.
I don’t think………..
I can bring myself to do that.
Hence why I would defeat it the moment we find the Dungeon Master of Nihonium.
“I think that there’s a curse to it.”
Inside the chairman’s room of Shikuro Dungeon’s Association.
When I asked Cell about it, that was the sentence that he gave.
That’s what you think huh.” (Ryouta)
“Based on Satou-sama’s story, I can summarised that the spirit’s core structure is similar to that of a human being.
If that is the case, it is natural to think that way.” (Cell)
Cell said in a serious tone.
“The burden that was placed to her, and not being wanted——-I think that feeling from Nihonium has manifested into the Dungeon Master.” (Cell)
“………I see what you mean.” (Ryouta)
It’s not like I didn’t know what he’s trying to say.
Since she’s been suffering for so long, she wants others to feel what she’s feeling.
In other people’s case, this might be a horrible thing to do, but I do understand why she would feel that way.
“If Satou-sama wishes.” (Cell)
“If I wish” (Ryouta)
“Under my authority, would you want me to stop the production of Shikuro for just a day” (Cell)
“Wouldn’t you be in trouble if you did that” (Ryouta)
“If it’s to strengthen another dungeon, then that wouldn’t be an issue.
What’s more.” (Cell)
“Satou-sama is severely underestimating himself.
You have brought back a dungeon’s life, all by yourself.
So if you want to do something to help Nihonium Dungeon, I’m sure nobody would ever complain about it.” (Cell)
“I think you’re giving me too much credit.” (Ryouta)
I bitterly smile.
“That’s not it.
Everyone would gather to Nihonium if Satou-sama were to change it.” (Cell)
“You’re exaggerating.” (Ryouta)
I know it but, hearing it from Cell just makes it more weird.
“There are people who were speculating what kind of dungeon it would be.
Be it animal, vegetation, minerals, magic, or special drops.” (Cell)
“Vegetation——— Wait so it’s not just Shikuro that distributes vegetables” (Ryouta)
“Since Nihonium did not drop anything whatsoever.
People were speculating it might be something other than vegetables.” (Cell)
“I see.” (Ryouta)
It might even be……..Special items.
If I were to categorize it, being able to increase your ability with the seeds, I feel that it’s under the Special Items.
“I have something I would like to add.” (Cell)
“What is it” (Ryouta)
“There were women who are interested in Satou-sama wanting to apply into your family has appeared.” (Cell)
“A girl, apply” (Ryouta)
I myself was surprised by this.
I didn’t really get what it meant, but it was real.
“All are innocent beauties, and each has its own race, and they’re all pure maidens.” (Cell)
“I think you’re exaggerating.” (Ryouta)
“That’s the evaluation for Satou-sama.” (Cell)
“Satou-sama has already reached the stage where every action you do has enough impact and fame to change the world.” (Cell)
“Again, too exaggerated.” (Ryouta)
“Although that’s what Satou-sama said, but you have the spirit and the world’s hope and fate at your back.” (Cell)
“The world” (Ryouta)
“So IF Satou-sama ever fails.” (Cell)
Cell became even more happy.
“If you ever abandoned Nihonium, the entire world’s drop might just disappear for all you know.” (Cell)
That might actually be a possibility.
Even now, the Dungeon Master is doing it, but a smaller scale.
If Nihonium truly becomes desperate, it might actually be true.
“I’ll put more thought into it.” (Ryouta)
“What, it’s no problem.
Whatever Satou-sama does, at the end of the day, it will succeed.” (Cell)
“Again, stop that.” (Ryouta)
Cell raised the corner of his mouth and started laughing.
While thinking about what’s wrong with him, we heard a knock on the door.
“I apologize for interrupting with the meeting.
However, Satou-sama’s family has arrived, and wants to meet with him.”
“My family” (Ryouta)
Alice just barged into the chairman’s room.
The monsters that are riding on her shoulders seems to all be out of breath.
“What’s up Alice” (Ryouta)
“S-Something huge happened! There’s a present!” (Alice)
“A present…Ah.” (Ryouta)
When I took a look at Cell, he had a face as if saying “What did I tell you.” look.
The situation exceeded my expectations.
“It’s coming from all over the mansion that it might just get buried by all of the presents!” (Alice)
“That’s just going too far!” (Ryouta)
Seriously, how much presents are there that it can bury the entire mansion.
