Now For Some Remodeling

 

Well now, even though it’s good that we’ve gotten 200,000 DP from Haku-san, I still haven’t decided what to do with it yet.
By the way, saying, “This is a large amount, so it wouldn’t be good if any were lost,” Haku-san transferred the 200,000 DP mouth-to-mouth. Thanks for the meal.

Since it was a special, how about let’s give summoning and raising a slime a go… with that, I looked through the DP catalog.
In this world, there were roughly two varieties of monsters that would have been called slimes in Japan.

One is the jelly. It is genuinely weak. Jellies move their semi-transparent bodies with jelly-like movements, dying quickly. They hardly have any offensive power at all as well. And they’re 1 DP each, bizarrely cheap… They also seem to be edible. Maybe they’re some kind of pudding or gelatin substitute?
Despite goblins becoming the targets of subjugation commissions, these guys are small fry to the point of being ignored.

Well, the other one is the slime. By being sticky and slimy, they have freely-manipulable bodies that can nullify physical blows. They are 10,000 DP a piece. Their weak point is that they are strangely weak, but they are omnivores that can eat anything. Naturally, they can eat people.
That is what people refer to as a slime in this world. Come to think of it, there were magma slimes in our neighbors’ [Flame Cavern] huh.

… As a dungeon for beginners, let’s try deploying a few jelly spawners in the dungeon for now. Even though they are one hundred times the monster’s initial cost, it’s still just 100 DP. Incredibly cheap.
Seeing as how they can be eaten, it’s not a waste. Maybe they’ll turn into snacks for adventurers and the goblins?
And for no reason at all, definitely no reason, I summoned a single jelly into my hand. Then, I tried out rubbing it to experiment… Ooh, yep, as expected. It jiggles.
I suddenly thought up something. Abruptly. Since I just came up with it, I made the jelly into a pillow and laid down on it. Oooooh, its softness is considerably pleasant. This incredibly good pillow probably wouldn’t even lose to the heavenly pillow. To get it for 1 DP… cheap…

I woke up from my nap since the jelly was crushed, my face was covered in a crust. Looks like the weight of my head caused its body fluids to gradually leak out. This is a point that absolutely needs to be improved. Wrapping it in a cover made with the vinyl wrapping that comes with the sweet buns might work? The jelly would still be crushed though.

“Hey Kehma, are the hero countermeasures good?”
“Nn, to be honest, they aren’t really needed.”
“They aren’t!? You’re not going to do anything with the 200,000 DP Haku Ane-sama gave us!?”

Yep, it was all for hero countermeasures, but there isn’t even really a reason to do anything. At most I just needed to make it so that he can’t get to the jail.
Even if he makes it to the dungeon’s innermost floor, destroys the boss iron haniwa golem and steals a few blade magic sword golems, there’s no need to worry since he won’t destroy the core due to Haku-san’s training (brainwashing).
To begin with, the one at the innermost of the dungeon is a dummy core, the real one is in Rokuko’s room in the inn. Rather, it’s to the point that I don’t think it’d be bad to have some crime prevention in Rokuko’s room. I’ll know immediately if there are any intruders though… I can use castling whenever, I’d usually put it somewhere in the dungeon. I wonder if it’s fine keeping this arrangement when the hero comes?

With all of that, it’s important to not bring too much attention to our dungeon by overdoing it. It might be a good opportunity to assess just how capable the hero is.

Speaking of necessary preparations though, it’ll probably be fine just making iron haniwa golems and magic swords.
I’m taking a pretty easygoing stance on the matter.

“Well, we did get 200,000 DP, so let’s go forward with strengthening the dungeon… To be precise, let’s make some new areas.”
“Un, what kind of areas are you going to make?”

I’ve been thinking about two things. A coliseum area and a meadow area.
Without hesitation, I put the coliseum area in front of the boss room, also making it so that you could go from the warehouse area to the meadow area.
There was a boss room if you advanced to the coliseum area from the warehouse area, and it would be a dead end if you went to the meadow area.

And for the meadow area, when I was talking with Haku-san, she’d told me about the geographical feature facilities for human farms, so I planned to install a [Sky (50,000 DP)] and [Meadow (500 DP)]. They didn’t appear in the catalog until she told me about them, but it’s probably because there was some kind of condition for them.
Geographical feature installations are applied to the entire floor. For example, [Sky] provides a stream of sunlight, as well as a proper night. It even rains occasionally, it really is a [Sky] huh.
Other geographical features you could get with DP included things like [Coast] and [Volcano]. [Volcano] is a cheap 100 DP, but [Coast] is more than 100,000 DP. I think it’s probably so expensive because a sea is something unnatural in a mountain.
It seems that if you make a geographical feature using DP, you could even make it like it was the outside world. Although they’re probably installations meant for providing for monsters that rely on certain terrains, you could also use it with the intention of making a human farm that humans won’t really want to leave because there’s no stress.

Naturally, the [Sky] terrain effect doesn’t increase the size of the room, it seems that room’s ceiling height is also set by the room’s size specifications beforehand. So I intend to make as spacious a room as possible… Let’s make it at the level where a village can fit in it. It’d be plenty even if they just settled down at the entrance.
Rather, I want to check what kind of thing the [Sky] is even though it’s a ceiling. I intend to install it in the meadow area anyways.

“So, let’s make the meadow area a [Safety Zone] too. It’ll be good if they decide to rest in that area. Let’s have them have an easy time to rest there… Should we set some rabbits loose too?”
“That’s kind to the adventurers.”
“Yeah. That’s the original role for a [Safety Zone] anyways.”

The [Safety Zone]’s original role. That is, a place to make surprise attacks against adventurers that have let down their guard, putting things in order.
Of course, monsters normally don’t enter them, so it’s used as a campground to rest safely in the field. It wouldn’t be something good to do every time. It’s only effective since it’s done rarely.

“Before the boss, they’d decide to rest. When they let down their guard, bang!”
“Well it’s like that.”

With that, I decided to do some splendid remodeling. Since we’ll be excavating a lot of holes with golems first, it’ll probably take quite a while. I had them dig carefully while I looked at the map so that we wouldn’t knock into [Flame Cavern].
But even though I’m remodeling, right now information for things farther in than the riddle area haven’t been leaked out yet. It’ll probably just seem like there are more jellies when looking at it from their point of view.

“Kehma-sama. There is news.”

The next day, Receptionist-san came from the guild.

“You might know already, but there are signs of a transition phase. Please refrain from entering the dungeon for a short while, please stay at the first floor.”
“Ah… yes, understood.”

Right, transition phase huh… Monsters that usually don’t appear come out, that kind of thing… I’m not planning on doing a dungeon battle though… yep, I forgot.
By the way, since they worried about monsters overflowing from the dungeon’s entrance, they appear to have set up a cordon. I was also included in the shift. It was treated as a nominated commission from the guild.
Somehow, sorry.
By the way, since the aristocrat’s search party hadn’t returned either, it turned into something like they got involved in some sort of abnormal event inside of the dungeon. Works for me.

“I see, so that’s the reason behind you deploying the jelly spawners huh!”
“No, that was just by chance. Rather, I didn’t expect it.”
“Eh, that so? That’s unusual for Kehma huh, are you still half asleep?”

Maybe. I’ve probably been forgetful since I’ve been thinking about various large-scaled things lately and it all caught up to me. Maybe I should get more subordinates to entrust with various things… since I can make as much of a labor force (golems) as needed, I just need people wisdom that can control them. Should I get more subordinates to manage the dungeon?
They don’t even really need to be humanoid like those three girls since they’ll be restricted to being inside the dungeon. Maybe something like an arachne…? Ah, monsters with wisdom as well as fighting potential usually cost around 100,000 DP. It’s at the level of making me hesitate a little. Should I get one?
… Eh, wait a second.

“To begin with, isn’t it fine if I leave noticing stuff like that to my partner (Rokuko)?”
“Eh, I should be aware of stuff like that!?”

Rokuko was plainly surprised. Oi, partner. Oi.
Somehow before I realized it, I became in charge of thinking while Rokuko became in charge of relaxing.

“Yep, I can make mistakes and forget things too you know?”
“Ahaha, Kehma’s good at joking around.”
“I’m not kidding you know!? You know that if you took away me being a dungeon master I’d just be a normal human right!?”
“… No way~, ever since Kehma kicked those bandits around, in my opinion everything’ll be alright if I leave it to you. I’ve just been practicing moving the golems.”

I’m surprised she trusts me so much. I just think that I’m a lazybones that just sleeps all the time though.
I should ask for Rokuko’s opinions more often from now on. Or rather, let’s have Rokuko make the dungeon too.
We didn’t have much DP before, but now our wallet’s overflowing from our Haku-san income.

“I got it. I’ll also think about making the dungeon myself.”
“Yeah. Since I’ll be leaving it to Rokuko, it’ll definitely turn into a goblin dungeon. It’d be interesting to see though.”
“It’s not like I’m a goblin lover you know!?”

Diverging from the golem warehouse, Rokuko made a new dungeon.
And as for me, I was dragged into working for the cordon for a little while. I didn’t have the chance to look at how she was doing.
… Rokuko’s dungeon. It was after everything was completed that I learned what was in it.

    1. This chapter was pretty much a preparatory work for the following chapters about her dungeon, eh?
      I can already imagine the dragons. And dragons. And dragon goblins.
      Which I assume is just a wyvern.

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

    i bet it’s food dungeon.. go melon bread monster! Hamburgers. Chomp those meaty Monster!

  2. Thank you so much, this was great! Awasome finish to the Arc.
    “To begin with, isn’t it fine if I leave noticing stuff like that to my partner (Rokuko)?”

    Haha, oh man this story.
    I am really wondering what she went and did, can’t wait for the other Arc’s and to see what she did… I am on the fence if it is really dumb or really cool/smart on her part.

  4. Haku-san transferred it mouth to mouth, am i the only one thinking see did that with kehma?? ( because the words “thanks for the meal”)

      1. Thanks this was my question as well. The action sounds like something with Rokuko, but the way its said, especially the thanks for the meal, make it sound like its from Kehma as thanks for the kiss. Though I guess the thanks was for the DP, or maybe he has awakened to the awesomeness that is yuri… DP it is then

        1. The Gochisousama is in reference to the nice scene of 2 pretty girls having an involved kiss. Its also used when you witness a lovlov scene between two people and a couple of other times.

          He is thanking them for the wonderful image.

  5. 勇者が来たらこの配置にすればいいかな

    As for this part, isn’t it more about the arrangement of things / layout of the dungeon
    I think it meant that he should do things like this in case the hero come

  6. I think its like this:

    nominated – specified to a person by their name, you can choose to accept
    designated – you are ordered to undertake it. Maybe you could refuse it but it will probably have a negative impact
    convocated – you are conscripted and resisting against it would make you break the law, therefore loosing your connection with the guild and be declared a criminal

  7. “勇者が来たらこの配置にすればいいかな”

    “I wonder if I should go with this arrangement should the Hero come?”
    (referring to having the core in Rokukos room in the inn)

    There is a danger that the Hero is given the ability to sense where dungeon cores are by Kami-sama so having it in the Inn would be a dead giveaway that something is odd. I would not put it past him to give the Hero a way to sense and find the things he wants destroyed. I could just be overthinking it but better safe then sorry. I might test it first by having the core in a different area of the dungeon and see where the Hero goes if he shows up, toward the deepest part of the dungeon or toward the seperated area where I put the core. If he goes to the seperated area then it would be possible to mess with him by moving it around while he is trying to find it. If he can’t sense it then I can just leave it in Rokukos room.

    1. The images of Rokuko are odd, she is a loli the first time she is shown and has huge breasts in later images. I have to wonder if she got bigger when her dungeon grew..

      1 room dugeon = loli
      multi room dungeon = busty teen

  8. Thanks for the chapter,
    Wonder how long the goblin-con stamp will follow her, also would haku dress up as one if she heard about it!

  9. While a regular commission is an open request that any advernturer may take (as long as they have the rank and number of partners indicated), a nominated/designated commission is one made by name, that is, a commission only the person chosen may take.
    To liken it to the real world, the guild is like a work agency. There are jobs for which the workplaces only give a rough profile for candidates to be sent, while there are other jobs where the workplace asks by name for a part-timer they had gotten before and whose work they liked (they nominate/designate a particular temp worker to be hired).
