I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 93
Fui : Edited chapter, hope it wont hurt your brain
Chapter 3-8. Adventurer
“That’s right … Let’s start with the adventurers’ rank.”
“Oh, please tell me.”
As if trying to remember, Uchikage facing upward before he resumed his statement.
“Every adventurers have their own rank based on their achievements and contributions. From the top, there are S, A, B, C, D +, D, D-, E +, E, E-, and lastly F.”
“That’s a lot of rank!”
There were more ranks than I had imagined.
He also said that adventurers rank used to be a few ranks, thanks to the young or novice adventurers overwhelmed by their enemies or monsters, the number of ranks increased as a countermeasure for their reckless behavior.
Adventurers are allowed to take monster subjugation request starting from rank E+.
For the rank below E+,they only allowed to take the request similar to odd jobs like cleaning sewers, searching for medicinal herb, etc.
Well, more or less something like that.
“If I’m not wrong, you’ll be recognized as full fledged adventurer at rank C”
“…I wonder how strong the C rankers are, .”
“Dunno, I haven’t seen their battle…”
“Ah, I see..”
He also mentioned the rank promotion is difficult.
He also said, you can’t decide how strong the person just from seeing them…..
Well… that’s understandable, I guess!
Oh, but I don’t know how good C rank is.
First of all, I don’t know much about monsters.
Ma boi voice of heaven.
May I ask you how to tell the monsters rank…
Maybe I should ask Uchikage, he may know the rank of the monster that I defeated, right?
Well, what kind of monster should I ask him?
How about that rare goblin species.
“Uhm…. can I ask something about monsters? Do you know the specific goblin’s rare species ?”
“… You mean Gobokk?”
“Ah, yes that’s its name. I defeated it, but what rank is that guy? Because, that guy was the strongest thing that I have been fight so far.”
“………… It’s B rank”
“Wow! Ouren is so amazing!”
Satella looked at me with sparkling eyes.
Is Satella wanted to be adventurer too?
If so, her reaction was understandable.
If I knew that guy was a B-rank monster, I would have run away without a doubt.
Was that guy really a B rank? That guy is considerably strong, huh?
Well, I guess a B rank monster that able to destroy my traps is fair enough.
I can’t even hinder its movement …
I’m still weak at that time.
But, it’s gonna be different now, or is it?
Isn’t overconfidence really bad at the moment like this?
Maybe that Gobokk just happened to be weak.
Maybe it’s still a child.
But it was smart enough to oversmart me …
My body was small at that time, and the fact that my opponent was a young monster may be the reason why I won.
I mean, I was almost dead at that time…
It was dangerous at that time. No shit.
“Ouren is fighting in a place that looks like this?!”
“Yeah … but there aren’t any monsters in this place. Are Satella interested in adventurers?”
“Yes! They seems interesting!”
“Hee, is that so? Then you have to learn the knowledge about adventurers that Uchikage-sensei will teach you from now on, okay?”
Satella is looking towards Uchikage.
I think she is really serious about this.
Uchikage is looking at me with a bitter smile.
I raise my thumb lightly and send a cheer in my heart, saying “Do your best, sensei”.
I mean, I need to listen and learn from him too.
Uchikage sighed and continued the lesson like he had given up.
“… Adventurer Rank is very crucial. If the request difficulty is B or higher, adventurers below B rank cannot receive the request. Apart from that, adventurers with S rank cannot receive requests below D +. A- rank adventurers cannot accept requests below D. There is a minimum rank that can be received in sequence like this. The reason is that it robs the jobs for the low rank and rookie adventrers. “
“Oh, that’s a good regulation”
“There are various other regulations, but I think you’ll learn them as your rank goes up. There are also special rules like skipping rank, but this rarely happens …. The safest way is if you follow the normal way to promote your rank. This is probably the best way to rank up if you want to gain the guild’s and client’s trust. And those who fail the request will have to pay the penalty. The penalty will increase as the rank goes up, so it’s better to be careful.”
Trust and penalties.
Certainly trust is needed.
There must be a top secret request or a request that cannot be tolerated for failure.
The guild will never leave it to the unreliable adventurer.
I wonder if there’s a guy trusted to plucking weeds or collecting herbs.
But that’s the important growth for adventurers.
Thanks to the novice adventurers that did collecting herbs request, the high-ranked adventurers can buy medicines and receive difficult requests.
This is the non written rule that even high-ranked adventurers must follow
You won’t be a high-ranking trusted adventurer if you blatantly skip your rank.
And … it would be useful if I had some knowledge of medicinal herbs in case of an emergency.
I know that I can use recovery skills,but if I neglect the knowledge about medicine, I can only rely on recovery skills.
That’s not good.
They even scol- told me to hide my skill forever if possible …
The Penalty fee will be used to increase the requests’ rewards given to the next adventurer who’s gonna take the previous adventurer’s failed request, or to hire more adventurers.
I wonder if the guild get a profit from the request?
I don’t really know how this world’s money circulation works.
“If you pass the rank promotion exam, your rank will go up. And … adventurers are obliged to pay taxes once a month. This also depends on the rank. Those who can not pay will stay at their current rank. Worst case scenario, their rank could be demoted. “
“If you receive the request properly and are able to complete the request, isn’t it possible to pay the tax.”
“That’s right. And the amount you pay as tax is cheap for every rank.”
This also seems to be a safety measurement for the adventurer and the request.
If you always fail the request, you will go bankrupt, and if you try to do something about it and choose a request that does not fit your strength, the quest fatality rate will jump up.
It seems that kind of adventurer’s rank will be demoted without compromise.
He said that kind of case are happening on a daily basis, but … is that okay?
Isn’t it better to change the promotion test content a little more?
It was what I thought, its happen often when the party breaks up.
The C rank adventurers party of three people, the party rank means all of the three adventurers strength combined is equal to C rank adventurer.
If they disband for some reason, it seems that their rank will be forced to be demoted because each one of them doesn’t have the strength of solo C rank adventurer to take the C rank request.
However, they don’t need to pay the tax if they were demoted from their rank.
They will only be able to receive one request below their rank for a month.
Not just adventurers, I think the guild that has all that information and rules is amazing.
I wonder how many people work there?
Of course, there are cases where the adventurers won’t be demoted.
For example, retiring as an adventurer.
If you retire, you won’t be able to receive the request anymore, but your rank will remain the same and you don’t need to pay any taxes.
There’s also cases like taking long vacations and raising children.
What a gentle guild system.
By the way, the amount of the tax is one big gold coin per month for S rank.
The same applies to A rank.
B rank is 5 gold coins and C rank is 1 gold coin.
D + is 5 big silver coins, D is 1 big silver coin, and D- is 5 silver coins.
E + is 1 silver coin, E is 5 bronze coins, and E- is 1 bronze coin.
F rank seems to be five copper coins.
When it comes to S rank or A rank, one big gold coin quite a sum of money …
Most of their requests are from countries and towns.
That should be a high amount of money for one request.
It seems that you can leisury live for two months just by working one time a month.
Also, it seems that taxes can be paid in any adventurer branch guilds across the word.
Actually, it’s best to pay the tax at your registered guild, but it’s a different case when you’re afar for example you are on travel.
If you pay it in another guild, you have to write the location of your registered guild.
After that, the guild will send a letter saying that this person paid the tax properly there.
That’s pretty solid.
When I summarize Uchikage’s lesson, it looks like this.
Rank S | Tax : 1 big gold coin | Request up to S ~ D +
Rank A | Tax : 1 big gold coin | Request up to A ~ D
Rank B | Tax : 5 gold coins | Request up to B ~ D-
Rank C | Tax : 1 gold coin | Request up to C ~ E +
Rank D +| Tax : 5 big silver coins | Request up to D + ~ E
Rank D | Tax : 1 big silver coin | Request up to D ~ E-
Rank D-| Tax : 5 silver coins | Request up to D or less
Rank E + | Tax : 1 silver coin | Request up to E + or less
Rank E | Tax : 5 bronze coins | Request up to E or less
Rank E- | Tax : 1 bronze coin | Request up to E ~ F
Rank F | Tax : 5 copper coins | Request up to E ~ F
It seems that E to F ranks can receive any request during that time.
The rest is exactly what Uchikage said earlier.
“By the way, how many S ranks are there?”
“As far as I know, it shouldn’t be that much. Most of them are A rank.”
“… What’s your rank at, Uchikage?”
“Ah, I wonder~”
I and Satella tilt our heads when we see Uchikage’s behavior,
If you’re not in the guild, you can say that, it’s not something to hide.
However, he seemed quite familiar with the guild, so I just assume he has adventurer’s license …
Is it something he couldn’t say?
“Well, uh ……… It’s F rank …”
Let’s choose a little more kind words, okay?
Aren’t you pretty straightforward?
No, I didn’t even think Uchikage rank is F either.
He is pretty not your ordinary monk .
Why does his rank stop at F?
“Y- you see … I’m dressed like this, and because I’m an Oni to boost, I stand out even more. What I mean is … it’s embarrassing.”
“Embarrassing …? Say what again?”
“You know, when I went to guild, they saw me as a conspicuous person, and when I tried to collect herbs, I’m very conscious of their gaze … their gaze hurts me …”
When I heard that, I burst into laughter.
Satella doesn’t seem to know why I’m laughing.
See this seemingly cool Oni shyly collecting herbs.
He felt embrassed to go to the guild counter.
And he stuck at that.
Oh shot, my sides.
“Wait a second, Ouren-sama !? Can you please not laugh that much !?”
“Thanks to you! Hahaha! That’s right, something like that can happen too Hahaha!”
“Of course it can! But then when I go to the request board, collecting medicinal herbs request when I’m already this old, and I’m also a novice to add is a little bit …”
“Hahahaha … haha. That’s hilarious, but I understand that feeling.”
“? I’m not sure what you mean by that?”
“Hear me Satella, as an adult, that’s something we called pride”
She doesn’t seem to understand it, but for the time being, I’ll pat her head.
She squints her eyes and feels ticklish, but she doesn’t resist me.
After all, kids are cute.
“Well, when I become an adventurer, let’s go together. Let’s raise our ranks higher”
“Eh, but …”
“Let’s travel the world together. There is nothing to be embarrased if we do it together. Sometimes it’s embarrassing because you’re doing it alone.”
“… I understand. Please take care of me when the time comes”
“Oh! It’s a promise then!”
“!? Don’t tell me that’s your aim !?”
“Hey, it’s a good thing! I don’t want you to feel sorry for picking medicinal herbs with this kind of appearance and age by yourself!!”
