TLN Note: From everyone’s suggestions, we will be making (Aurum) golden!
Next day during noon, the entrance of Aurum Dungeon.
There were villagers and adventurers scattered around the entrance of the dungeon.
All of them were grinning happily as I stood and saw them from a distance.
[I was shocked that the drop of the dungeon would double.] (Clint)
Clint who suddenly appeared right beside me was speaking an obvious line together with his shocked expression.
Clint immediately rushed over from Shikuro when he heard of the rumours from the villagers.
At first he was half believing half skeptical about it, but when he heard of it from the villagers who dived in the dungeon, and even the employees of the trading shop •The Swallows Repayment talking about it. Soon that suspicion was morphed into curiosity.
Thus, he came here to confirm whether the rumours were true, since seeing is believing.
[If you were that shocked, then I’m sure this is a first for you too?] (Ryouta)
[I do not know as much as you think.] (Clint)
[…….Then, what is that special drop at the deepest parts of the dungeon?] (Ryouta)
Since Aurum does not know much about these sorts of things, at least I could ask Clint about it.
[The deepest floor of the dungeon? You mean the mysterious disappearance.] (Clint)
[Mysterious disappearance?] (Ryouta)
[Yeah, throughout the century it would only happen once in a few years. The timing, place, and the adventurers were all unrelated, the only thing common was when someone defeats the rarest monster at the deepest floor of the dungeon, they would mysteriously disappear.] (Clint)
[Ah so they got spirited away.] (Ryouta)
[Some came back soon after but others were never to be seen again—–Wait could it be!?] (Clint)
Clint was showing a shocked expression once again.
[So that’s it. As expected of Satou-san, you have really good luck.] (Clint)
Aurum did mentioned about it once. You would only have a 0.000000001％ chance of having the staircase appear once you defeated the rarest monster at the deepest floor of the dungeon. So besides me who has a 100% chance, it’s already been 300 years since another human had the chance of the staircase appearing.
Yesterday I went and visit Aurum again.
After defeating the rare monster, the staircase appeared.
Aurum was surprised that I passed through that 0.000000001％ chance again in a day, but I wasn’t surprised at all.
Because of my All Drop S.
The stats that only I have in this entire world, a unique (only one) skill holder.
With that my drop rate would always be 100%, the dropped quality would also be higher than others, and things that people defeat and couldn’t get any drop, I would get a special drop from it.
Even if it was 0.000000001％, if you have a drop rate of S then it would still be turned into a 100%.
So it’s not because of my luck or anything.
Clint was thinking deeply with his mouth open while looking at the cherry blossomed villagers happily taking their double drops.
[A horse appeared from within a gourd, I can’t believe something as unreasonable as this would become a reality.] (Clint) (TLN: 瓢箪から駒が出る)
[At first it was to just ask Ryouta-san to help out the Indole’s villagers, but I can’t believe one thing led to another and now it became like this.] (Clint)
[Your luck is reeeealllly good.] (Clint)
[I guess so, well my luck is good I suppose.] (Ryouta)
The villagers were looking at us.
Suddenly, Clint took out something out of nowhere—–and placed it right in front of my eyes.
It was a paper rolled into a cylinder shape.
[This is?] (Ryouta)
[You have something good due to your luck. After discussing certain issues with Samechiren last afternoon, I got this.] (Clint)
I received the paper from Clint and opened it, there were many complicated words written on top of it resembling that of a contract, and below there were two signatures signed.
[The relationship between Indole and Samechiren has been completely cut off. If the news of the double drop rate had been transmitted over there, then there would have been another trouble.] (Clint)
[I see, so that’s why you said I was lucky.] (Ryouta)
I rolled back the paper into a cylinder shape, and returned it to Clint.
With our shoulders side by side, we looked at the villagers with hope for the future with a smile.
There were some adventurers inside the dungeon, though slow but little by little the center of the dungeon was becoming active with commercial stores opening up.
The Gold Mine of Indole is getting back on track.
It was at that moment when I was convinced my role was finally over.
After saying goodbye to Clint, I went to the house of the head chief.
[How may I be of service, our Benefactor-sama.] (Head Chief)
The head chief brought tea over, and with an extremely polite attitude greeted me into his house.
[I was thinking of heading back home.] (Ryouta)
[Heading back? Wh, where are you going.] (Head chief)
The head chief was flustered.
[Back to Shikuro. I just realized that I have been here for too long and left my house unattended for a really long time.] (Ryouta)
[I, if it’s a house we can make one at Indole. We were just discussing about building a mansion for Benefactor-san to stay over.] (Head Chief)
[A mansion……] (Ryouta)
I bitterly smiled, as I wasn’t filled in on this.
[It’s alright, I don’t need one.] (Ryouta)
[However, Benefactor-sama is this villager’s—–] (Head Chief)
[Low level doesn’t like to be tied up.] (Eve) (TLN: EEVVEEE!!!!)
While the head chief was desperately trying to persuade me, the door was swung opened and Eve let herself in.
The proud bunny ears with a sexy bunny suit.
The girl walked towards my direction with a pitter patter sound, and stared down at the head chief who was sitting down.
[What do you mean by being tied up.] (Head Chief)
[The dungeon is waiting for low level. Other dungeons too.] (Eve)
[Other dungeons…..] (Head Chief)
[We can’t be selfish and hog low level on just one dungeon, that is bad.] (Eve)
[Mu…..] (Head Chief)
The head chief was fussing over Eve.
Eve’s eyes were serious for once.
[Th, that’s true too…..we can’t be keeping Benefactor-sama here because of our own selfishness.] (Head Chief)
[If you get it then it’s all good.] (Eve)
[Then please accept all of our feelings!] (Head Chief)
The head chief kneeled down, and said something as if he wanted to say it for the longest time.
[Your feelings?] (Ryouta)
[Our gratitude for you. The villagers would certainly love to repay you.] (Head Chief)
The feelings of gratitude…..
It’s fine if I don’t have to receive that, but I don’t have a reason to decline either.
[I got it, I’ll hold onto everyone’s feelings.] (Ryouta)
[OOH! Thank you so very much! I’ll go and tell everyone right this instance. Before you leave we would want to hand it to you even if it’s just the initial part.] (Head Chief)
The head chief stood up and immediately ran out.
Despite being his own house, he left us and ran out.
[Such impatience. Furthermore, what does he mean by the feelings of gratitude? He also said something about the initial part.] (Ryouta)
[Bunny knows.] (Eve)
[You do?] (Ryouta)
[Bunny’s ears are hells ears themselves.] (Eve)
[The king is not a donkey!] (Ryouta)
[Make the village pay 1% of their tax to low level.] (Eve)
[I think that feeling is a little too much!] (Ryouta)
Without thinking I tsukkomi her.
[Moreover, how much would 1% even be?] (Ryouta)
[Bunny would not know until that far.] (Eve)
[I see.] (Ryouta)
I wonder how much would it be, as Eve and I both tilted our heads in unison.
[It would be tens of thousands piro per year, wait, now that the drop has also doubled it would probably hit the billions.] (Ryouta)
Afterwards I asked for that amount from Ena, and I was amazed at the fact that there would be more than 100 million income in the years to come without doing anything.
