Team Battle

 

“—And well, that’s how it happened. We’ll be doing a Dungeon Battle.

Just when I started to think it’d been three days after Rokuko left, she came back and suddenly started talking about a Dungeon Battle.
Rather, who’s this [Father] person? God? It’s definitely god.

“… By the way, that was the first day right? What about the other two?”
“Eh? The other two were for eating, drinking, merrymaking, having tea… I got 210th place you know? And Core 112, Ontentoo, got 63rd. Ufufufufu.”

This girl, she’s happy. Is 210th place something good?
The big thing I want to talk about right now is the Dungeon Battle.

“So, why are we doing the Dungeon Battle instead of Haku-san?”
“Because that’s Tou-sama’s intention. There’s no choice but to follow it you know?”
“… What would happen if we refused?”
“In that case, it would make Haku Ane-sama into an enemy. Absolutely no way.”

Ah, yep. I also don’t want to do that. I don’t want to die.

“… So, the rules… a three team battle, was it?”
“Yeah.”

According to Rokuko, Core 6 and Core 666 are [Team Demon King], Core 5 and Cores 650-652 are [Team Dragon King], and Haku-san and us are [Team Sovereign].
We need to prepare a new dungeon and only a single dummy core.
If the dummy core is destroyed, it’s a loss. It needs to be destroyed this time, not just touched.
The available DP for us to use comes out to 500,000 DP, dummy core included.
The battle will start in one month and we should prepare the dungeon until then.

… And then there’s a troublesome rule for me.

To cooperate with the superior core (senpai), make the dungeon in cooperation with the superior core (senpai) using the superior core’s (senpai’s) DP.

If I took this seriously, I’d expose my hand to Haku-san. I’d have to make a dungeon without using [Create Golem] to not expose it.
… I want to hide [Create Golem] so that I can use it as a last resort, but then the way we’ve been making our dungeon so far wouldn’t work.
I think it’d be enough since there’s 500,000 DP, but our opponents have the same condition. How can I be stingy and have more stuff…

Incidentally, the superior core (senpai) group is banned from bringing their own things, but it’s OK for the subordinate core (kouhai) group to… So getting Haku-san’s helpers is no good.
I guess just happening to pick up some magic swords and other various things that Haku-san has thrown away is no good huh? It’s probably no good.

… Maybe I should have Rokuko spin the 1,000 DP gacha two hundred or so times? With her luck, it’d probably be worth it.

“Nn? But what should we do about our dungeon during the Dungeon Battle? Leaving it alone would be dangerous right?”
“Yeah. According to Tou-sama, the spaces will be connected during it. So we can come back to it every day.”
“Connect space… like a Dungeon Battle huh.”

For him to be able to easily do something like that, this [Father] guy really is suspicious.

“Your Tou-chan’s pretty amazing huh. I’d like to meet him.”
“You might be able to see him at the start of the Dungeon Battle?”

By the way, a display for the limit to the DP we can use in this dungeon battle and the amount we’ve used so far was added to the menu. Talk about quick support.

“So, where will it be connected? As expected, it’d be a big deal if something like a huge gate linking to the imperial capital just showed up in the middle of the village.”
“It looks like it’ll be connected between the inside of our dungeon—at the arena—and Haku Ane-sama’s imperial villa in the capital. It’ll change to where Kehma decides to make the dungeon.”

How thorough.
I sighed. If I make it, there’ll be no escaping. I don’t intend to run away, but I really want to.

“So, what should I do?”
“Haku Ane-sama is going to come pick us up and bring us to the imperial capital!”
“… Won’t we have a shortage of staff here then?”
“If you’re worried about it, why not summon more?”

Right. I can do that, can’t I?
I even summoned those three girls to be the first ones… we’ve even collected a considerable amount of DP, so maybe it’s about time to summon some personnel to manage the dungeon?

“Fufufu, I am 210th after all! If it’s DP, I have it!”
“Yeah~. Alright, I’ll give Rei 50,000 DP to use to summon whatever subordinate she wants…”
“… Why Rei?”
“Because she knows the details about the dungeon. Meat and Ichika can’t use DP, Kinue-san is engrossed with the inn’s domestic chores, and Nerune’s immersed herself in studying… You could call it the result of the process of elimination. Besides, she’s those three’s leader.”
“I see, she’s the most familiar with the dungeon after me.”

Somehow or another, Rei managed to become the three girls’ facilitator. There were a few things that happened when she was first summoned, but it somehow worked itself out. Kinue-san is the best for practical things though.

“Well, it’s fine. Kehma, when we, umm, go to the capital, I want… I want to go sh-shopping. C-could you come w-with me?”
“… Yep, I’ll lend you Meat to carry luggage.”

Invite me on a date in Haku-san’s area? You know I’d die right?

“… I want to go with Kehma.”
“It’d be a bit difficult under Haku-san’s surveillance…”
“Isn’t Kehma a bit too afraid of Haku Ane-sama? Haku Ane-sama is super kind you know?”

Sure, you’d think that. That’s only towards you…!

  1. Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    I wonder how scrooge McKeima gonna cheapen things out~ while having a date with rokuko right in haku’s territory..
    *raise some bad end flag*

    1. Cutting corners with some Golemified magic tools probably, so they end up with stronger forces than their funds should be able to support. He definitely can’t use it on the actual dungeon, while Haku watches.

  2. Thanks for the triple release! I wonder if he should just reveal his methods. Haku can’t freely adjust the golem maker spell like he can. Probably…

      1. he should switch to using the Maker spell like he did before also he should see if his RD has made self building golems yet if not get them working on it. oh the evil things I would be making if I had this setup.
        I know one idea that is just not fair make the key for one of the rooms a large golem and have it attack anyone that enters so that once it moves from its spot any one there would be trapped and if they destroyed the golem they would be stuck there with out the key they need to get out they would think it was some kind of mid-boss and be left there to starve to death.

    1. — C-could you come w-with me?”
      “… Yep, I’ll lend you Meat to carry luggage.”
      Invite me on a date in Haku-san’s area? You know I’d die right?
      “Isn’t Kehma a bit too afraid of Haku Ane-sama? Haku Ane-sama is super kind you know?” —
      Sure, you’d think that. That’s only towards you…!
      XD…

  3. Thanks for the hard work on all the new chapters. Can feel the next arc revving up.

    “It would make Haku Ane-sama mad. Absolutely no way.”
    “In that case, it would make Haku Ane-sama into an enemy. Absolutely no way.”

    “Guess getting magic swords and other various things that Haku-san doesn’t want and just throws away is no good huh.’

    “I guess happening to pick up magic swords and other things that Haku-san has thrown away is no good huh? It’s probably no good.”

    Image Haku is strolling along tossing magic swords and other valuable things over her shoulder and Kehma and Rokuko “just happen” to be following behind her and “discovering” them. Kehma is considering that scenario and deciding that people would probably not buy it.

    It’s things like that that made Rokuko uncertain if she had been cheating when she got the high rank.

  4. “Haku-Ane sama is super kind you know?!”
    She hugs you, She kisses you, intimidates other people to keep their distance from you, and gives you lots of money… hey wait isn’t that a sugar daddy?!

  5. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    Rokuko! Keima is already on thin ice because of that ring. Don’t rise any more death flag for him!

  6. Would be nice if we saw some of that Keima and Rokuko progression, but it seems Haku is going to interfere… so why do I feel like Keima is going to use Rokuko as a bait to draw away Haku while he builds the dungeon (I mean, he doesn’t really need to show/let Haku see how he creates the dungeon). Well, I don’t think its against the rules for other dungeon cores to visit the other dungeon masters during the 1 month period though too…

    1. Maybe he afraid that dungeon have security cam camera features on higher level so you can review past event.
      …. wow such believable BS I just spew out… well technically dungeon should have those features right ? To review your defense flaw.

  7. wow thx for translating………now there is but one more chapter in this arc…… just one more………..I’m okay with it…..but are you………to leave just that one *stare*

  8. It has already mentioned 2 times that the ring kehma made for rokuko worth millions. I wonder if they wohld at least try and see if it can be converted to DP.
