Chapter 78: What the Party Lacks
This was the first time since Yuto became an Adventurer that he was guided to one of the private meeting rooms.
These private rooms were a special place for an Adventurer.
If you are not selected by the Guild for Requests, if you did not have adequate skills and strengths, then you would never enter these rooms.
That’s why being led to this room is a mark of status and recognition for an Adventurer.
When Yuto arrived at the room….
Yuto: (Amazing… it’s a leather sofa! It’s my first time seeing one! The carpet…..is it okay that I’m wearing shoes? Should I take off my shoes…..? OH MY GOSH!! There’s a glass cup with tea inside! What should I do?!”
He was completely at loss on what to do.
The leather sofa, the carpet, the glass cup.
Everything in this room was what Yuto would consider Ultra-High-Class Luxury items.
Before such things, Yuto couldn’t help but worry if he would accidentally break or dirty such items.
He carefully sits down onto the sofa.
He’s never felt cushions so soft, and Yuto felt his heart gripped hard at the sensation.
Yuto: (What is this?! This is so soft! It’s like I’m sitting on top of a Slime!)
Yuto thoroughly enjoys the comfortableness of the sofa.
And watching him do so, the Guild Worker chuckled quietly to herself.
“Would it be okay to begin our discussion now?” Yuto: “YーYeth!”
Yuto hurriedly sat up and straightened his back.
“Then I will begin with the contents of the Designated Request. As far as the Request goes, we would like you to slay Monsters outside of the Kronos City Limits.”
Yuto: “A Monster Slaying Objective, is it?”
“Yes, yesterday, we have noticed a significant increase in the Monsters living outside of Kronos. We have noted especially an alarming increase in the South Forest….. If too many Monsters gather together, we project that a Large-Scale Monster Stampede is possible, and the Guild would like to mitigate any and all possibilities of this from happening as soon as possible.”
The luxurious feelings Yuto was having instantly fell to the floor.
A Stampede means Monsters flood out of their normal territory in terrible numbers.
They say the number of Monsters that floods out can range anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000.
Once a Stampede begins, if it begins unfortunately next to a city, that city will be destroyed.
Worst case scenario, a Stampede has once destroyed an entire country.
But this is not something that happens several times a year.
From what Yuto can recall, the most recent Stampede was 4 years ago.
No one really knows what caused this Stampede either.
The most common theory was the imbalance of nature’s biological pyramid.
If there are only Goblins in a forest, the Goblins will continue to grow without end.
But if there is one Dragon that resides there, the number of Goblins will be in check.
This would be considered a balanced biological pyramid.
A Stampede occurs because either the Goblins growth rate surpassed their death rate by significant margins or maybe the Dragon that was killing the Goblins disappeared, and the population suddenly burst through the roof.
“This time, we would like your Party to draw out and take down the Monsters in the Sothern Forest. There is no official number for this Request, but at the very least, we would like you to take down at least 20.”
Yuto: “Thー.....that’s quite a lot.”
At the very least 20.
The words strained Yuto’s smile.
If this was a Dungeon, this would be simple to clear.
But outside the city, you do not run into Monsters that often.
There’s a possibility that Yuto may not even find 20 Monsters.
But as if to reassure Yuto, the Guild Worker smiled towards him.
“You do not have to be concerned about that. As I mentioned before, currently, in the South Forest, there is an alarming increase of Monsters currently, We do not believe this number to be unreasonable by any means.”
Yuto: “Is that so….?” Yuto feels a little assured by her words.
That would be one less problem to worry about.
But there is one more thing Yuto had on his mind.
Yuto: “There is one more thing I want to ask. Is that okay?” “Yes, of course.””
Yuto: “For this Request, could you possibly introduce us to someone who can help us?” Eliz: “Huh?” Dannan: “What do you mean, Yuto?” At Yuto’s words, Dannan and Eliz raise their brows in suspicion.
Just the other day, when they cleared the Instant Dungeon [α], there was something Yuto felt that the party lacked.
If it is a normal Dungeon, then what they have now is fine for the time being.
But if they are fighting in an open space and area, Yuto wanted one more person to carry out a special role for them.
Yuto: “In the previous Insta, I thought about how much a Shield Warrior would be helpful. When it’s an open field, there were too many times when I couldn’t help cover the entire field.”
Dannan: “Ohー now that you say that, yeah, that’s definitely true. With a Shield Warrior, our party would stabilize significantly.”
Once Yuto explains, Dannan nods his head in agreement several times.
Eliz understood as well, but shrugged her shoulders and looked towards the floor.
Because what Yuto meant by [cover] mainly centered around protecting her.
Eliz is a Heal Spellcaster.
She is the lifeline of the Party, and it’s expected to protect her from all dangers from Monsters at all times.
Unlike when Yuto was a luggage carrier, the Heal Spellcaster is not protected because they’re carrying the Party’s belongings.
Being protected itself is not anything to be ashamed about.
Yuto gently placed a hand on Eliz’ head as if to tell her so.
“For this present request, there is a resource that we can introduce. But we will withdraw an introduction fee, and your Request reward will be split evenly among more people. Is that acceptable for you?”
Yuto: “Of course. Yes.” Yuto nods.
If his Party members are going to be safer, paying the introduction fee is a necessary cost, and from the beginning, Yuto has always split the rewards evenly with each member of his party.
There is no reason why he should turn down this opportunity for the Guild to introduce a new Party member to him.
“Then I will explain the duration of this Monster Slaying Request and associated rewards next.”
The period will be a full week.
The Request Reward amount will be 10,000 gards a person per day. Any Monster Stones acquired during the Request period will be bought and added to the Party’s overall rewards.
This is all after they recruit a Shield Warrior Adventurer, and after the Guild Introduction fees are deducted.
Overall, this was a pretty sweet deal for Yuto.
After they accepted the Request, Yuto and his Party were waiting for the temporary Shield Warrior Party member to arrive.
This is one of the Guilds recommended person.
Yuto’s heart thudded with excitement as he was anxious to see what kind of strong Shield Warrior would arrive.
“I’m coming in.”
In the private room Yuto is waiting in, the Guild-recommended Shield Warrior arrives.
With the Shield Warrior’s arrival, Yuto quickly stands up to greet them.
When they look towards the entrance, they see the face and petrify.
