“And that’s why, Today we need to go hunt monsters to provide funds for lodging!!” – Yato
“I understand, Master” – Ente
With ente accompanying me we moved out of the city early in the morning.
By the way, I have recovered my strength after resting for a night.
As expected resting at an inn is really great after all.
If I move too far away from the village, I might lost my way and won’t be able to comeback so we decided to hunt just around the village.
Hearing about places where demons come out from the inn lady, It seems that demons come more often in places with high vegetation or rocky areas.
So I was warned not get close to that area, but we can’t really avoid that.
“Horya!!!” – Ente
Ente quickly found a monster and swiftly deals with it. That sure is awesome.
Did leaving me behind unprotected and be attack yesterday took a toll on her,
She focuses all her attention at the surroundings while staying so close, She sure is such a hard worker.
We haven’t encountered any demons other than those that we encountered yesterday.
These were the demons that attacked us in surprise yesterday, they don’t seems to be any stronger than the ones we encountered.
Only the surprise attack manage to hit me yesterday, They were powerless when fighting ente head on.
Ente sure is strong.
We also encountered green versions of these demons, They were definitely the forest version of these demons.
Basically it about the environment where they live that affects their image.
Well there is no problem in taking them down with ease.
There was also a demon called forest boar,
This is a boar demon with a green fur and have long tusks, It seems that charging is its main way of attacking.
I’m wondering if that attack is much stronger than the club swing though.
Since it attack is very straightforward, Defeating it is easy with ente’s fighting power.
She sure is not acting like an imouto at all.
No, Instead of an imouto protecting the Ane, Isn’t it me who is treated as imouto?
While going around having such delusions. Our funds keeps on being supplied.
I can now earn more than enough to pay the rent again, It sure is quite easy having Ente around.
“Arms Girls’ Uses money to level up their abilities.
So I think collecting money is like gaining XP.
There are certain formulas to calculate needed requirements for leveling.
Character Rarity ★ x Total Ability level x 1000 Veils is need.
That means, if I want to level up veils ability to damage demons / undead, 3000 Veils would be needed to level it up by 1 level, And from lvl 2 to lvl 3 will be 6000 Veils. (★ x SLvL x 1000)… Just thinking about how much money needed to raise their level make my head hurt.
At the time of “Arms Otome” picking up valuable items to sell and Gaining quest rewards are the main source of income to use for leveling them.
However in reality, there are many things needed to use money on.
Unlike in the game, we still needed money to live our everyday lives.
For now our target will be reaching maximum level of girls.
It sure is like a dream but we will definitely strive for it.
By around lunch time we returned to the village.
My stomach goes *pecopeco since have not eaten anything since breakfast.
Since we didn’t have any money, there was no choice but to go out without a meal.
First thing after returning we decided to have a meal (on the first floor of the inn is a dining and tavern)
Upon returning, we saw the inn lady talking to a person who seems to be a hunter.
“Oya? Did you just return? are you girls staying again for the night?” – Inn Lady
“Hai, That is the plan desu” – Yato
There is no problem about lodging fees for now.
“Well that’s goo, Since I have received some good ingredients the meals prepared will be special tonight.” – Inn Lady
I see, So that hunter came to sell in prey, Anyway I didn’t know monsters were sold like that.
“Does it not disappear and become light when killed?” – Yato
“Well, I haven’t heard of that happening, We will not be able to eat it if it disappears when its killed you know?” – Inn Lady
That sure is obvious, Because hunters hunt it and is sold and used as ingredient for food other things.
Definitely it doesn’t disappear and turn into Veil the moment it is killed.
Even I think that prey disappearing is definitely not normal.
For now we need to verify what kind of logic is involved when demons turn into light particles, We should probably refrain from killing monsters in front of people for now.
The lunch that was served was hard bread, and which contains grains and nuts.
It has kind of a rustic taste, but since we were hungry there’s nothing to complain about it.
Hunger is one of the best seasoning after all.
After finishing, It’s time to go shopping.
Oh by the way, The old man mentioned before that they have set up their tents in the village to some business.
Because there were not that many items in “Arms Otome” I’m looking forward to the many things I can see around here.
It seems that there was only one miscellaneous shop in this village, It was just an ordinary store and was easy to locate.
Also everyday items doesn’t seem to be different that much.
But there are also tools that could not be found in japan.
Lighting Equipment that uses the shell of a demon beast called light turtle, It stores light during day time and glows at night, It’s like a solar lamp.
There are also signboards that uses forest boar fur for decorations.
There are also tools placed on the field to ward off monsters, Isn’t that a scarecrow?
There was also darkness grass that was used as medicinal herbs for eye drops.
It allows you to see in dark places, Isn’t that convenient?.
Our next destination was the peddlers tent, that person was not from this village.
It was like a bunch of old ladies gathering on a bargain sale.
By the way, Am also considered one of those aunties?
When I was younger, I would see them as nothing more than adults.
Oops, that was bad, I was starting to recollect about strange things again.
Apparently it it’s first day of opening, a lot of people were gathering around to check out the goods.
While looking around to see what was being sold, there were a lot of cloth products.
There were rolls cloth fastened around uncut, and there were also those that were processed into clothes etc.
Some other village might be flourishing in processing cloth.
It’s one of those business strategies where you buy the materials somewhere cheaply, and sold it to other places at a higher price.
that is definitely within their peddling route.
I also saw a small section some suspicious tools placed around the corner.
There are also magic tools.
There were also tools used for daily needs, It is a little more expensive compared to the ones available here though.
The number is smaller and doesn’t seem to sell that well to the people.
“So there was not that much demand for it in this village, It was more for show than for selling” – Yato
The merchants that were selling mentions that many of those were from dungeons, frontiers, and Places hunters often visit.
It seems that not everything will be sold in this town but, bulky items and others are sold cheaply in villages to convert to cash.
Some of them are more expensive than I had thought, sometimes villagers will try to bargain the price to be lowered.
Showing magic tools like this is something like a display of goods.
There was something in the shape of a fan or a wooden box was showed, Even this box seems to be a magic tool.
There were a lot of different things…. Somehow my pocket feels light, I wasn’t sure if I could afford it though even if it has price tag placed on it.
I set my sight on a bow, Checking it out, it seems that this item resembles an item in “Arms Otome”.
“Excuse me, What kind of effect this bow gives off?” – Yato
“It’s a bow call flash bow, the arrows it shoots are arrows that have the effects purification.” – Merchant
Yup… No thought about it. This bow seems to be flash bow Erina
Although it’s rarity is ★ ★, Since it has enhanced effects on demons and undead just like Ente, In quests that has many enemies, they play an active part in diminishing the number of enemies for fast leveling.
Mou… I really want to obtain it but its expensive, It is a magic tool after all, Maybe if I work a little harder I’ll be able to obtain it.. For Now…
“Ano, I’d like to buy this bow, but can you save it until tomorrow?” – Yato
“Oh is it this bow? It’s fine until tomorrow, no one will probably but it anyway.” – Merchant
The seller responds with a bitter smile. Nice! Its decided what we will be doing now.
“Ente, Let’s Go” – Yato
“Hai, Master” – Ente
I will let Ente-sensei help out with work until evening.
