I Decided on my Next Destination
“Hey. Is there a town you’d recommend?”
I asked one morning, several days after the snow melted in Rikardo.
I was speaking to the guild receptionist.
It wasn’t that I didn’t like Rikardo, but I had received a lot of attention because of the firewood incident. And it was likely that the Blue Moon of Salvation knew where I was.
I had found a name that was the same as mine on the list. And so I didn’t want to live in a place that was so close to where one of their bases used to be.
That’s why I had asked the question…
“Oh, Mister Yuji, you are leaving us?”
She said with an expression of sadness.
They had come to rely on me as an Adventurer ever since the firewood crisis.
Well, it didn’t matter. I had already made up my mind.
“Yeah. I have my reasons. But I can’t stay here for much longer.”
“That is unfortunate… But if you ever change your mind, please consider returning to Rikardo!”
She said as she brought out a map of the country.
It seemed that she would recommend a town after all.
“Uhh… You’re a Tamer, Mister Yuji?”
“Yeah. I am…why?”
“Then why don’t you put armor on the slime and Proud Wolf?”
Armor on monsters?
I suppose it made sense to put it on weaker monsters… But I never felt like the slimes or Proud Wolf were lacking in the defense department.
Generally, they were protected by my magic. And the slimes were strong against physical attacks.
It really did not seem like it was necessary.
“I don’t intend to do that since I think they’re fine… But is it normal to do it?”
“Uhh… I heard that it raises more than just their defense…but maybe it’s different with slimes?”
So it could raise their attack ability too?
I wasn’t sure, but this was a world of magic. So perhaps something like that was possible.
And so I asked her.
“So, how is this related to me moving to another town?”
We were supposed to have been discussing my new base of operations as an Adventurer.
And so there must have been some connection if she suddenly brought up armor…
“Well, there is this place called Boguinea. It’s known for making armor for monsters. I thought you might want to go there!”
