“Right? All of them are made from Fire Dragon or Green Dragon scales. And so they have excellent durability and heat resistance!”
“Dragon scales!? I see…”
The Leviathan scales had also been transparent.
Mappa had used them to make glasses. The Earth Dragons must have similar skills.
“Also, I have stuff like this.”
Roydon took one of the sacks that hung on his belt.
And from it, he removed large, sphericals objects.
“Dragon eggs! They are so delicious that you can eat them raw!”
“Dragon eggs… Well, that is impressive.”
“Aye. The largest one is a Fire Dragon egg. The smaller ones are from wyverns. You can also fry them or boil them.”
“I-I see… But uh, will they hatch?”
“Huh? Well, if you don’t keep them chilled, sometimes that can happen. After all, it just takes a little heat and they just start popping out.”
That was incredible vitality.
Baris turned to Roydon.
“I know of wyverns as well. They are monsters that are the size of horses, are they not?”
“Aye, that is right. We larger dragons like to eat them. After all, they are very delicious.”
To Earth Dragons, other dragons were just food…
Baris chuckled awkwardly and then turned to me.
“I have heard that wyverns are loyal to their masters if you raise them from when they are small. Perhaps it would be a good thing to buy some of them.”
“I see. If we raise them, we will have a way to travel through the air.”
Currently, Baris, Mel, and Kamyu were the only ones who could fly.
The other goblins, orcs and kobolds could not.
And considering how useful it would be for watching and for moving between the levels of the World Tree, they would make a wonderful addition.
Roydon looked puzzled.
“You’re not going to eat them? Well, I think you should do as you like. These eggs are about two months old. So they will hatch in less than a month if you warm them up.”
Roydon then started rummaging through his bag and came out with ten more eggs.
“I have thirty in all. What do you say? Will you buy them?”
“I really do want them. But what do you want in exchange?”
“Indeed. What was that called, wine? Also, do you have any plants?”
“We have branches and leaves from the World Tree. Also some fruits?”
“Ohh, then give me those branches from the World Tree or whatever it’s called. We generally don’t have much wood.”
“Huh. You don’t have trees?”
“Aye. The Green Dragons have monopolized the few forests that exist.”
Considering that and the eggs, it sounded like there was a lot of fighting on Roydon’s continent.
“Yes, let me see. Give me as many fruits as I can carry. And then I will add the Fire Dragon egg.”
“We don’t really know anything about Fire Dragons. Besides, I am not confident that we could control it.”
Roydon answered me.
“While every monster is different, they should generally recognize the first person they see as a parent. And they will not go against a parent. So I think it should be fine.”
“I see. In that case, I suppose we’ll take the Fire Dragon egg too.”
“It’s settled then! Ahh! Now I can return without worry!”
Roydon laughed boisterously as he started to drink the wine again.
“Hmm? You’re not going to the other Earth Dragon settlement on the other side?”
“Aye. I was going there to get more wood materials. Because the other kinds of dragons aren’t there. That’s why I can sell them these scales and eggs.”
“Oh. Still, you traveled for a whole month…”
“Aye. But thanks to you, the trip will be shortened by around ten days. Thank you!”
And with that, Roydon drained his barrel, finished the transaction, and started to return by the route he had come.
“I will be back. And with even more eggs!”
He promised before he left.
And so without having planned it, Sheorl had acquired a trading route.
