Chapter 33: You can’t explain what the game is about with just the game guide
Actually, I don’t know what it is called, really.
Or how it was even made.
Among many, there’s no information regarding it in any of the records.
But the thing I know for sure is that this large 88-floors dungeon hasn’t had any guests for the last 200 years.
Had, as in the past tense of has.
And I accidentally opened up a hole to the finish line.
Activate the teleportation magic circle on the innermost floor of Elibel’s dungeon and only then you can enter her laboratory located on a different continent. In other words, there’s no way to get to the ruins other than teleportation.
Except that it was never expected there will be someone who could dug a hole just above that finish line.
Especially when the Eld Desert is a super-dangerous zone filled with King-class monsters.
Which is the reason why there’s no other monster that built their dungeon here.
Thanks for the gift.
And right now I’m in the deepest part of the dungeon.
It took quite a while for me to repair the transfer gate.
I had to make some modifications to it, after all.
Because of the devilish trap, the place will instantaneously collapse when someone teleports in from the dungeon.
So it was necessary to work on it so that it would not activate when I returned.
Why am I here right now, you may ask?
There are two reasons.
First is to see the dungeon with my very own eyes.
Thanks to Elibel’s knowledge, I know everything about it, from its structure and traps to the monster that appears in it. Still, learning from the books is completely different from seeing them myself.
To see is to believe.
And the other reason…
Rather it’s the actual reason why I’m here.
It is to get a certain item that can be obtained inside the dungeon.
Unlike my dungeon, Elibel’s dungeon is programmed to drop materials and items upon monster death.
Furthermore, there are still valuable item boxes that haven’t been opened yet scattered in this place.
Which automatically generated in random places thanks to the magical power circulating inside the dungeon.
Interesting. Maybe I should try it too.
But why would I bother opening something I prepared myself?
It is sad to be playing alone, really.
And it’s not easy to make a magic circuit system from scratch.
What’s more, you must have a complete understanding of the item you want to generate.
For me, the best I can do right now is a sword stone.
It is hard as it sounds.
Ah, I got carried away.
So like I was saying, the item I’m looking for is not something that I can get myself.
It is not a monster item drop. It is an item from the treasure chest.
On top of that, it’s the only Super Rare item inside this dungeon.
The treasure chest was set up by Elibel herself since it is something she obtained when she was still alive.
With that said, I’m here today for that thing.
Usually, people will have a hard time finding the right treasure chest but not me, as I know exactly where it is.
How, you ask?
My head contains every single knowledge from the ruins, remember?
It’s like when you know how to get a pachinko machine to hit the jackpot.
It is not cheating.
So the item drop I mentioned before was placed in the corner of Floor 88 which is the deepest part of the dungeon.
I’m wide awake with a belly full of magic stones.
『Alright, I’m ready.』
By the way, I also brought Tres and Pururu with me this time.
Before I knew it, she’s already home.
She came back when I was taking a nap.
I sure sleep a lot.
Oddly, I’m getting more sleepy these days.
Especially after expanding the dungeon, I will sleep whenever I can.
Well you know what they say, kids― I mean, a dragon needs a good sleep to grow.
What, that’s not it? Don’t worry too much.
Anyway, it was Tres who wanted to come along.
「Dad, I want to go with you.」
Is what she said. Fufufu, so cute.
Pururu also shook itself as if it wanted to say,『Me too.』
So there are 3 people… or should I say, 1 person and 2 monsters.
Now, let’s do our best exploring the first man-made dungeon.
Before this, it was only me.
Tres is so excited that she even brought a weapon with her this time.
『Hm? Tres, is that what I think it is?』
「Yeah, it’s the sword you made! I thought maybe we’ll need it. 」
It’s the same sword I gave to Ann, a replica of Holy Sword Leviathan. An inferior version of the real thing.
For her to bring it, I’m touched.
Tres and Pururu are having fun together.
Every time Pururu got petted, its body shook.
I’m healed just by watching them.
Both of them are wildly enthusiastic.
Well, it’s their first dungeon exploration, after all.
All we need to do is get the item and go back.
Nothing too complicated.
「Are you ready? Let’s go!」
This feels like we’re going out for a picnic.
Hahaha, today’s going to be a blast!
――――is what I thought.
I immediately realized my mistake.
It’s a major oversight.
I can clearly hear the roar.
「Wow, it’s so huge.」
How can you be so calm?!
Three seconds after entering the dungeon.
We encountered a giant over ten meters tall.
When we teleported from the ruins, we found ourselves in the vaulted hall on the lowest floor of the dungeon.
I knew where we’d be teleporting to.
This giant was waiting for us there.
It has six arms, each holding a sword, an axe and a bow.
It looks so scary.
What is this thing, really?!
Activate Elibel’s knowledge.
Searching for similar monsters!
Come on, Elipedia!
…Found it! This one!
Elder Tyrant Golem
Estimated rank: Disaster-designated species. 88th Floor Boss.
Unlike ordinary giants, it has high intelligence and is able to use high-class magic.
Its height is 10 melds, which is still relatively small for giants.
It possesses the four attributes, water, earth, fire and wind.
The magic of each attribute is as powerful as general-class and required no chant.
Notably, its ability to regenerate. As long as its core magical stone is intact, all parts of the body can be regenerated immediately. It can also regenerate objects and weapons. Also, its regeneration ability is effective on the objects it wears, including weapons equipped.
When it finds its prey, it will not stop attacking until the target is destroyed.
Furthermore, the armor it equipped has been given the following effects: attribute effect reduction, abnormal status nullification, physical ability enhancement, and magic enhancement.
The magical stones are constantly moving inside the body, making it difficult to strike the vital point.
There are thirteen magical stones in total. They can’t be disabled unless you destroy all of them at the same time.
Even if a bunch of dragons comes to take it down, I’m confident that I can win.
It’s my finest work! Yay! – Elibel.
So it was youuuuuuuuu!!
Wait, that’s not it…..
In dungeons, if you went reverse, the first thing you’ll meet is definitely the last boss…….
I had forgotten the obvious after all this time.
What should we do?
Without wasting a single moment, the giant come straight right at us.
