I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 177
Chapter 4-23. Getting Ready
Right now the money we have is a little too much for a D-rank adventurer to have.
Well, this may be a result of our ability, but I can’t say the same for the money Alena brought with her.
But we will use what we can.
After leaving the Adventurers’ Guild, we were heading for the dungeon as soon as possible, and arrived at the magic circle in the church.
It seems that the other three had learned about the magic circle in the past few days and were now making good use of it.
Just like what Jigul had taught me, I paid money to get a magic stone.
The amount of money is still ridiculous, but it’s a small price to pay when you can quickly move up to the C-rank level with it.
Immediately we activate the magic circle and proceed to our destination, the adventurer’s camp in front of the dungeon.
I only have to use 1 MP, but will the other three be okay?
I was worried because Jigul seemed to have taken a lot of MP just by activating it once.
After the transfer, I checked on the three of them and found that they did not look tired and seemed ready to move immediately.
Is there a difference between individuals?
“Alright! Now let’s get to it!”
“You weren’t listening to me.”
Me and the others are empty-handed once we get there.
We are too unprepared to go into the dungeon as it is.
We may not need lights, but Alena will need lights, and we will need food for all of us.
We could think that we could just kill the monsters in the dungeon and eat them, but not all the monsters in the dungeon are edible, so we should bring enough food to last at least a couple of days.
After all, water is absolutely necessary.
No matter how hard you struggle, you will need to bring it with you.
“First of all, food and water …… and then something to light the way. This is a must. Do we need anything else?”
“It would be good to have some blankets or something. It’s important to get a decent amount of rest.”
“Oh, I see.”
If you think about it, we needed quite a few things.
The things we need now are pretty much the same as what we need for the trip, but I’m sure we’ll need other things in the dungeon.
For example, a rope or …… a pickaxe, perhaps?
Hmmm……… I’m not sure what exactly we need.
“Well, let’s just go out and buy all the ones we think we need.”
“I understand. Then I’ll go to the hardware store.”
“I want to go too!”
“Then I’ll go get some water containers.”
“Uchikage, while you’re at it, go and get something to keep the lights on. I’ll go with Alena.”
Since each of us had decided what to prepare, we decided to temporarily dismiss in order to purchase the necessary items.
Since it would be a hassle to come back here again, we decided to meet in front of the entrance of the dungeon.
In this way, we would be able to proceed right away.
Alena and me went to buy some food.
There are many stores, some of them are selling meat and some of them are selling vegetables, but what we need is food that can be stored.
We need food that can be preserved, which is pretty hard to find, but we definitely need dried meat.
I can’t say that that stuff is particularly tasty …..
As long as it’s only for a day or two, it doesn’t matter if it doesn’t last.
Let’s just buy something that looks good.
“Does Alena want anything?”
“Hmm. …… map.”
“Oh! We definitely need it.”
I had forgotten about it.
We had no idea how long it would take to conquer the dungeon without a map.
If they were willing to give you a rank up if you conquered it, it would not be surprising if someone had conquered this dungeon in the past.
To tell you the truth, it is not necessary if I use my haze manipulation, but I can’t ruin the …… atmosphere, right?
So, we purchased some food.
Then, I decided to look for a map.
I asked the owner of the store where I buy the food.
“I’m wondering… Do you know where I can find a map of the dungeon?”
“There’s a store in front of the dungeon, but you shouldn’t spend your money on it, okay?”
“The dungeons sometimes have a caretaker from the Adventurers’ Guild who restocks the treasure chests. But the map only shows the shortest route, so you can’t really depend much on it.”
I almost laughed a little at the fact that a caretaker was replenishing the contents of the treasure chest, but I guess that’s their strategy to attract more customers to these places.
Besides, the map doesn’t seem to be that detailed.
This is a supervised dungeon, so the danger level seems to be very low.
Therefore, in order to help adventurers learn how to navigate the dungeon, they recommend a mapping tool before buying a map.
Hmmm, that might indeed be a better option.
While you are making it, you will probably find treasure chests, and you will learn how to get around in the dungeon, which is good and beneficial for you.
I’ll buy a mapping tool here.
“Is that okay with you, Alena?”
So we headed to the entrance of the dungeon.
As soon as we arrived, I bought a mapping tool and gave it to Alena.
She was very motivated, which was a good thing.
There were many tents set up in front of the dungeon, selling various small items and other things that would be useful in the dungeon.
There seemed to be a lot of adventurers challenging this dungeon, and the stores around the dungeon seemed to be flourishing.
The entrance of the dungeon is located on…….
To put it simply, it is a large opening in a hillside cliff.
It is a very large cave, and even if dozens of people crowded into the cave at once, they would probably be able to walk through it without any problems.
I was beginning to look forward to …… seeing what kind of sights lay behind the cave.
After a while, Uchikage and Reizen returned as well.
I gave Reizen my magic bag, so there should be a lot of water in it.
Uchikage is like a true Oni, literally. ……
He brought various luggage with one arm.
Since only one person stood out from the rest, I immediately put the baggage Uchikage was carrying into the magic bag.
Uchikage seemed to have purchased a variety of blankets, lamps, and other items.
Let’s hope these will be useful.
“Are we all set?”
“Well, …… this should be enough to cover it all …… The question is how many days it will take to conquer it. ……”
“We’ll be making maps as we go, so it may take a little longer.”
“I’ll do my best!”
That should be enough.
All my stuff is in my magic bag, so we can go with our weapons.
But I’m not going to be able to use my three foot sword this time, so I’ll put that in the bag as well.
I can’t swing long weapons in the cave.
This time, I will fight only with the KageOrochi and my skills.
“All right, let’s go.”
We walked into the dungeon with a light step.
