I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 121
Chapter 3-36. Adventurer Guild
A day has passed since we arrived in the Kingdom of Garott.
Last night, I took Alena and the others to their respective rooms, and after making sure they were asleep, I asked Baltic to tell me about the current situation in the Kingdom of Garott.
First of all, Asure’s activities.
I heard that he went to another country immediately after that to announce the current situation in the Kingdom of Garott.
Apparently it will take some time for him to come back, but even if the king is not there, Baltic will take care of everything, so there is no problem at all.
He is a very reliable older brother.
After seeing Asure off, Baltic and Valadim began to liberate the people from the territory that Azbal had ruled, according to the report.
At the same time, they said, Valadim snatched up the slave traders who had participated in the slave hunt and totally purged the germs from the country.
With this, the mining sites have lost their labor force at once, and the amount of material mined has dropped significantly.
In return, it seems that the Adventurers’ Guild has offered mining jobs as E-rank requests.
The amount of mine production has apparently begun to increase as a result.
However, it seems that the perception that mining is a work for slaves has not yet been shaken off, and it is now only used by adventurers who are really in need of money to earn a steady income.
This problem will be solved with time, so there seems to be no need to think too much about it.
Although they have yet to establish a stable political policy, they are planning to build a solid foundation over time.
It will be interesting to see what the future holds.
After waking up in the morning, I had breakfast in the castle.
Then we were on our way to the Adventurer’s Guild to register as adventurers, which I had mentioned before.
Alena told us that she was going to become an adventurer, and we all approved.
Satella is the only one who will be involved in the rebuilding, and Valadim is the one who will support her.
That’s how they decided to work on the restoration.
However, Alena could not be an adventurer all the time.
So Satella and Alena talked and decided on the conditions.
First, Alena will definitely come back when she becomes an A-rank adventurer.
And then, she is expected to protect the reconstructed territory in order to guard Satella.
In other words, when Alena becomes an A-rank adventurer, she will leave our party and, like Valadim, return to her hometown to guard Satella.
After that day, her adventuring career would be ended.
In order to protect his homeland, and thus protect Satella, she became an escort knight under Satella’s direct command.
That’s what their conditions are.
As an A-rank adventurer, she would be no match for the average adventurer.
Alena also agreed, declaring that if she became an A-rank adventurer, she would return to her homeland and protect her village.
If something was wrong, she promised to return to her hometown to help out whenever she was in a difficult situation.
She will not permanently live in the village until she becomes an A-rank adventurer, but she will go there to lend a helping hand.
I wish that would never happen, but …… well, I’ll help out when the time comes.
We’ll probably still be in a party until then.
And so we arrived at the Adventurers’ Guild.
The buildings of the Adventurers’ Guild are large.
At a glance, it looks like a church, except there are no statues and no bells.
If one were to take a closer look, one would quickly realize that this is not a church.
Even before entering the hall where the reception desk was located, adventurers were coming and going.
Some of them looked like bad-looking fellas, others were women dressed as if they were mages, some were wearing the same armor to create a sense of unity, and a few appeared to be beastmen.
I thought I didn’t know much about the beastmen, so I looked at them for a bit and they gave me a very suspicious look and moved away.
Was I a bit rude?
Once we entered the building, we found about five reception counter-like sections, each of which was attended by three receptionists.
There are several more places like that, but the five counters are the only places where people often gather.
These areas are spacious, with desks and chairs available for adventurers to sit down and chat.
There are many boards attached to the walls, and they are covered with an overflowing amount of paper.
Perhaps they are request boards, if they exist.
You tear off a piece of paper for a request you want to handle and bring it to the reception desk to accept the request. That’s how it works, I suppose.
“Daang. That’s quite a crowd.”
“Yea, this is incredible.”
“This is your first visit to the Adventurers’ Guild, isn’t it? First of all, let’s register as adventurers. I already registered, so that leaves Ouren-sama, Reizen-dono, and Alena.”
Uchikage walked to the empty reception counter.
We followed him.
As we were walking, we felt a lot of stares directed at us.
Maybe it was because I had Alena with me,…… or maybe it was because Uchikage, an Oni, was a very rare sight…….
Either way, it was a little uncomfortable.
When I got to the reception counter, there was an old woman dressed appropriately as a clerk, filing paperwork.
She was dressed in a purple outfit and wore a pair of triangular glasses …… something so precise that you’d think she was trying to get us to do her work.
The old woman noticed me and quietly put down the papers in her hand to deal with the situation.
“Welcome to the Adventurers Guild. This is a reception for new registered adventurers.”
“Yes. We would like to issue adventurer cards to these three individuals.”
“Alright … And the little lady too?”
Thanks to Uchikage’s handling of the situation, the conversation went smoothly.
But only when the old woman saw Alena and she looked a little worried.
Well, she doubt it first because Alena is a child
Then the old woman began to look at me intently.
Even though she was looking at us over the counter, her gaze was really strong.
Reizen was also a bit taken aback by this, but Alena didn’t move an inch.
Suddenly, the old woman’s face lit up and she was packed with excitement.
As she leaned out from the counter, some papers fell to the ground.
However, the old woman did not care about it and continued speaking.
“You with the white hair and you with the black hair both have the potential to be at least a B! You, the Oni, I’d say you’re about a C. But you, young lady! You have the potential to be an A rank adventurer!”
“Ooo … oh …?”
“Yea, but you don’t have to believe me so much in my assessment. I’m just saying you’ll get there at least that far. If you work hard, you can go even higher!”
I was shocked to hear such a thing out of the blue.
It seems Uchikage was also surprised.
Anyone would be surprised to hear such a thing out of the blue.
Other adventurers were also surprised to hear this.
……? No, wait a minute.
Why are you guys surprised too? It has nothing to do with you.
But when I listened carefully, I could sort of understand why they were surprised.
They were talking in hushed tones, but I could hear them quite well.
One person said, “I can’t believe that old lady said that much about them. She can’t be serious.”
Who the hell is this old lady? ……
“Oh, I’m the executive secretary of this adventurer’s guild ……, well, I’m Roz, the guildmaster’s right hand man. Nice to meet you.”
“Ah, sure. I’m Ouren. This is Reizen. This Oni is Uchikage. And this child is Alena.”
“Fufufufu……. I haven’t had a very good day lately! Registering as an adventurer, right? Just give me a minute, it won’t take a long time.”
Then Roz handed us three sheets of paper.
The papers looked like a resume.
But I don’t have anything to write and I can’t write …….
I decided to ask Uchikage to write them down for me. My apologies.
However, Alena seems to be able to write letters normally.
Apparently, all he wrote on the form was the name, which was no big deal.
Roz immediately retrieved the document and brought it to the back of the room.
But soon she came back and brought a crystal.
“Hmm? You mean this? This is what you need to make a guild card. Well, it’s also a proof of identity. Without it, you will not be able to complete requests or be promoted in rank, so don’t lose it.”
Apparently, this is a kind of fingerprint identification feature.
It is said that the person’s information is transferred to the card through this crystal.
However, it is said that only the race, name, level, HP and MP are written on the card.
Of course, this information will be hidden unless you want to show it to them, so there is no need to worry about it.
After hearing the explanation, each of us took a turn touching the crystal.
Then it glowed for a moment and the card we had placed next to it also glowed a little.
Roz immediately handed it to me, and I decided to take a quick look at it.
The guild card had this written on it.
Name : Ouren
Race : Human
The race was not WaveSnake but Human.
I was a little relieved because I had been a little worried that my race would be exposed.
Now, there would be no suspicion if they were to look at me.
I wondered if Reizen was thinking the same thing, and when he checked his guild card, he let out a sigh of relief.
“This is the completion of the Adventurer Registration. You are now F-rank adventurers. Now, let me explain about the Adventurers’ Guild.”
What was explained to me was almost the same as what I expected, or rather what I had heard from …… Uchikage.
The way to receive a request is to simply tear a piece of paper of the request you want to receive and bring it to them.
Just as I had expected.
However, it seems that there are different ranks at the reception desk.
So I was only warned to make sure I was in the right place.
There are five reception counters.
A counter that accepts FtoE requests.
A counter that accepts E+ to D- requests.
A counter that accepts D to D+ requests.
A counter that accepts C to B requests.
A counter that accepts AtoS requests.
The other counters are for selling materials.
The rest is for simple shopping.
That’s pretty much it.
“So …… Do you guys decide the name of the party yourselves?”
The first to respond was Reizen.
I have a feeling that if we let him come up with a party name, it would be a mistake…….
He looked at me and said, “Can I pick a name for the party?”
Well, if it’s bad, I’ll be the one to correct him a little.
For now, I nodded and let him do as he likes.
Reizen smiles broadly and immediately tells Roz the name of the party.
“Then! The Dragon Emperor!”
This idiot, don’t point your finger at me.
I said we’re a team.
What are you doing by making it a party just about me?
“Hold on a minute, Reizen. That’s totally just me.”
“Eh, but isn’t it good that Ouren-aniki is the leader of the party?”
“It’s not about the leader, it’s about the team, you can’t just name something that’s just about me. I mean, Wait, I’m the leader? I don’t mind.”
“Hmmm …… what shall we do then ……”
Reizen was nodding his head and thinking of a new name.
But the name “Dragon Emperor” seemed to be a pretty good one.
Therefore, I think it is okay to use the word “emperor,” so I will try to think around it.
…… dragons, turtles, oni, and human ……
Oh, by the way, there was a mythical beast called the Four Spirits.
Or rather, sacred beasts.
Among them, there must have been a dragon and a tortoise.
It looks like me and Reizen.
And there were four of them.
We have four party members now …….
Yup. That should be fine, right?
There are no oni and human, but if we try to include them, the name is going to be too long.
“Reizen. How about we go with ‘Reitei’?” (The Four Emperors, aka the Ling Emperor.)
“Yes. There are four sacred beasts called the Reitei. The four of them together were called that. Me and Reizen are similar in some ways, and since we are all different races, I think …… that would be a good choice.”
“Oh! I like that!”
Reizen looked at Uchikage and Alena and asked if that was okay.
Uchikage nodded significantly, but Alena didn’t seem to understand, and I think she was nodding along anyway.
So our party name became “Reitei”.
We immediately added the party name to our guild card.
With this, all the procedures were completed.
“Well, that’s a nice name. “Reitei.”
“Is it that good?”
“That’s true. Party names these days are just awful, you know? There aren’t many guys who really live up to their names, like 【Dragon Slayer】, 【Exterminators】, …… 【God】, 【Devil Eater】 ……and many more.”
What a …… these name …… is painful.
That’ s the name I came up with, too.
But well, it’s usually a little weird when people who have never really slain a dragon call themselves dragon slayers.
Our party name is not like that, so it’s okay.
Yes, that’ s what I want to believe.
“Speaking of which, …… what weapons do you guys use?”
Without hesitation, we take turns saying what weapons and skills we’re good at.
“Feet and claws”
“… Ma- magic …”
Then, after a moment, loud laughter erupted all around us.
I looked around to see what was going on, and saw a number of people pointing at us and laughing.
What’s going on?
