Day 289

Still needs a little editing ~Miraclegrass

Day 289

So, today I took the money we earned yesterday and went to conquer the 【Holy Land of Gambling】.

The dungeon was a simple dome in structure, with five sections inside.

Most explorers and visitors who enjoy gambling stayed in the first section, the outer ring. Then there was the second ring, which led into the narrower third. That led into the fourth ring, which led into the heart of the casino, the fifth center circle.

Unlike the other dungeons, where one would only have to look for the stairs, you would need to earn a certain amount of money or pay a large sum to move onto the next ring. And every time, the amounts get larger. It is difficult, but not impossible, because the betting rate goes up the farther you go.

After getting past a ring, you can move to all of the previous ones without charge, allowing you to go back outside to earn money if you lost a fortune here.

As such, a lot of rich people from the Atarakua Demon Empire and the Beast Kingdom, among many others, are almost constantly entertained here.

Meanwhile, the local badges are strictly personal, so even if others possess them, they will not work.

In the first round, where everyone is allowed in - they are not needed, but to move to the second ring you must earn the bronze badge first and to move to the third, the silver badge, to fourth the gold badge and to the fifth, the platinum badge.

Also, the dungeon monsters that appears here are, for the most part, working as dealers or bartenders of the restaurants inside, so there is no need to fight except in the Coliseum arena.

Therefore, you can even see women and children inside, and it is possible to get to the final section with enough luck; it is this kind of a place.

It is very difficult to capture this place with sheer power, and all of the gambling inside will make it a very stressful place, even without any traps.

Going inside the 【Holy Land of Gambling】, we were able to slip past the first two rings into the center third ring because of the large amount of money I had earned outside the 【Holy Land of Gambling】 in the casino. After storing the silver permit badge into an item box, we all headed to the slot machines. 

The slots rotate in the machine at a high speed but due to our quick eyes, it seemed stable and we could easily keep track of them to consistently make money.

It seemed like we were committing fraud, but it was not so since it came from a physical ability. Because of this, the dungeon monster [Black Robes (Black Clothing)] did not see our cheating nor tried to stop us.

Even if we only played slots in the third ring, the amount of winnings made is excellent. While the bets are large, in exchange the money income is also considerable.

Having played here for 10 minutes and earning some seed money to start with, I sent the Avenger and his group to the fighting arena (Coliseum) to gamble and earn more. After wandering around with Kanami-chan to figure out what to do, I went to the roulette table.

When I went to the table, the game had already begun. A dungeon monster dealer with the appearance of beautiful Northern European woman turned the rotating roulette disk (Wheel) on top of which spun a ball that must land in one of the 38 sections.

They were broken up into the sections numbering from 1 to 36 and painted in alternating colors of red and black, with the other two sections at the beginning numbering 0 painted in green.

Since the game was already beginning, I decided to watch the bets (Bet) of the other visitors (Player).

While observing for a while to understand the habits of the dealer and how the ball moved on the wheel, I bet small amounts. At this point, I was only winning double what I bet. Then, putting my bet all on one number, I safely won a large dividend of 36 times the amount.

At this point, the atmosphere around the table was wrapped in tremendous hustle and bustle, but there was nothing I could do about it.

This time I put 20 platinum chips that, due to coming straight into the third ring, was all that i had in my pocket.

If I lost, it would have been necessary to leave and earn more. Since I won however, I had earned 720 platinum chips.

That much money is on par with, or even superior than, the budget of the Sternbild Kingdom. Because of that, the hype that emerged was not unusual.

That amount of money was uncomfortable to hold, so I exchanged almost all of the chips to black steel chips, which isn't used anywhere else except in the 【Holy Land of Gambling】. After that I was left with 20 platinum chips and 70 black steel chips.

While feeling the weight of the money in my hand, Kanami and I went to Avenger and his company.

Since we had earned more than enough money, we can quickly travel to the 5th round.

Fortunately, finding the Avenger group was easy since they were in the area where the Coliseum arena-based fighting and gambling occurred.

I found them at a good moment, right when the Avenger knocked the King of the Arena out of the ring with a light blow.

The king of the arena had been undefeated until this point, so the odds were stacked in his favor. Therefore, a large amount was won with the Avenger's victory, with his four teammates having placed all their money and hopes on him; they all had an overjoyed look on their faces.

I wanted to go further into the dungeon joining forces with the Avenger group, but Kanami-chan wanted to have breakfast in one of the restaurants located in the 【Holy Land of Gambling】. The dish was incredibly expensive, but a dungeon monster cooked by a dungeon chef was so delicious, it was priceless.

Suddenly, I had to order it several more times.

After a little break, we moved on. We could move to the fourth round for free since I had earned more than requirement to advance a ring, so I just paid for everyone to go straight to the 5th round.

(This is so hard, I'm gonna die T-T. I promise to stop pushing for manga translations if this is what you guys have to go through ~RDCro)

The final (5th) round in the deepest center in comparison with the other ones was extremely small since only a few could reach here. Because there was no need for a lot of space, as a result it felt a little cramped. In exchange however, the interior decoration could be compared to that of a palace. Furthermore, the amount of money that flowed through this place was several magnitudes higher than the budget of the Sternbild Kingdom. I was told that the equivalent of a small country's national budget could be won or lost in a single game. At such a place, the wealthy could lose an overwhelming amount of money. 

At the same time, if there are those who could lose everything in just one defeat, there are also those who could become wickedly wealthy when they were just at the brink of bankruptcy before.

Right now, I saw a well-built middle-aged raccoon beast-man desperately screaming after losing a big game, and a dragonnewt in underwear flushed with excitement giving a courageous shout of victory. Thinking of it as a very understandable reaction, we glanced at them with interest while hastily passing by.

We stopped once we reached a certain place.

This was something similar to a department store.

There were armor and magic potions, books and ornaments, precious jewels the size of a fist, laying carelessly on the shelves.

It was clear that these were all goods for immediate sale with the price tags attached to them, but the amount asked made it seem like such a rip-off that it's someone's joke.

However, the quality was not a joke. The store sold armor type magic items with powerful stealth abilities, consumable medicine providing [longevity] or [internal magical power increase], and other incredible magic potions, a magic book (Grimoire) containing a terrible magic spell, as well as jewelry containing mysterious magic. So many wonderful treasures that it was impossible to look away.

If you look at them carefully, really the prices seem quite reasonable.

If you were to ask why there is this kind of a place in the 【Holy Land of Gambling】? First of all, the merchandise are all items lost from visitors. After losing too many games with the dungeon monsters, they used those items as a bet.

But anyway, there is not much use for visitors coming to the 【Holy Land of Gambling】 to buy anything, because honestly, the dungeon monsters will just end up winning them back.

As a result, all of the items here on display are luxurious commodities, but only the conqueror of the dungeon can end up buying them.

Before in the earlier rings, there were these places too; but, the things here should be of the highest quality. With this expectation, I took a brief look.

I only took a brief look because one quick glance is enough to tell that the quality of goods is different in each section. That's why it made no sense to waste money there purposelessly.

Incidentally, for a certain period of time the original owner has a preferential negotiating right to buy the item supplied after it has been exhibited, where no one else can get it. So if the last owner appears with enough money, he will be able to buy the item back. However, actually doing so is quite difficult.

The items exhibited here are things with an extremely high value in order to cover the large bets; so to buy them, you need quite a large sum. At the same time, buying back an item lost to a bet is even more of a struggle since the already high amount is marked up even further by the store. 

Therefore, while looking for possible items to eat, I have no choice but to pretend to give up and sigh; but still, I keep on looking around for something good. (I guessed the meaning of this sentence. This translation made no sense. ~Anon Editor)

Gambling has lead to all these items being lost by somebody, ones who can do nothing but stare nervously to confirm that it has not yet been bought by anyone else. If it turns out to be still there, they can only look more worried. But if not, despair appears on their face instead.

It would be better spent making the money instead, if they have the time to worry like that. With this idea, I began to choose what would be useful here to buy. Every time I picked up an item, I would get a reaction from somebody. For one item I picked up, there was no reaction.

It was a huge gem.

The gem, which had a transparent bluish color, was charged with a mysterious magical power. According to my appraisal, it seems to be [Jewel-Sealed Ability (Sealing Gem)].

Although it is a gem, it seems that if I wanted to I can easily crush it in my hand like a balloon, and while crushing it, acquire the [Ability (Skill)]-something good.

That's the most dreadful thing about the 【Holy Land of Gambling】. You can play not only for gold, but anything you like, exchanging its worth for a corresponding amount of chips.

Naturally, things like armor and other personal belongings can be exchanged. However, other things can be exchanged too, including but not limited to: past memories, internal organs, the maximum value of your mana, [Jobs] and [Combat Arts], even your sense of honor or your life. However, abilities that are a disadvantage like [Weakness to Blunt Hits] or [Weakness to Cold] cannot be used as collateral since they are not beneficial and thus have no value.

If you win using the chips received, there will be no problems and the collateral will be delivered safe and sound back to the owner.

But if you lose... the result will be something like this [Jewel-Sealed Ability]. It may contain [Jobs] and [Combat Arts] as well as other abilities, which have no form themselves.

Normally, there is no way to materialize something like this and transfer it to someone else. But we can assume it can be done here through the [Jewel-Sealed Ability], an unique item that can only be obtained in the 【Holy Land of Gambling】.

These [Jewel-Sealed Ability] are rare. But if you look around here carefully, several can be found.

In other rings, there were only mediocre ones. Only on the last section was it possible to find [Jewel-Sealed Ability] of good quality. That is, it is a rare commodity.

I found one [Jewel-Sealed Ability] with a green light, containing the special ability [Demonic Insect's Natural Enemy] that could be obtained in a 【Age of the Gods dungeon】.

For the purposes of the Avenger, it is a very useful ability. It allows for the application of critical damage to certain creatures. Given that this is one of the skills obtained in a 【Age of the Gods dungeon】, it is very expensive. But probably because it is a [Jewel-Sealed Ability] with a relatively low level of utility, it is classified as unpopular.

Because of this, the price is slightly lower, only 3 platinum pieces.

For something of this price, I immediately bought the [Jewel-Sealed Ability] and gave it to Avenger for use right away. While doing so, I thought if it would be good to find abilities that are more easily applicable or useful. 

After that, Avenger was surrounded by glow that almost immediately entered into his body. With this he had the ability of [Demonic Insect's Natural Enemy]. Thus, since we have achieved one of our goals here, I decided to look for something else for myself.

Among the exhibited products were a group of items that have stayed here unsold for a long time due to their exorbitant price. In addition, among them are even a few [Jewel-Sealed Ability], which were made here from the lost bets of [Great Heroes] and even [Emperors]. Fragments of their abilities were there, emitting a radiance large enough for my eyes to pop out of their sockets.

At first I thought to buy them, but then changed my mind, deciding that they would still be there after I conquer this place.

Since gambling relies on a luck factor though, stealing this place will not come as easily as before. So I decided I would be content with just successfully completing one of the goals for Avenger here. However, it would be disastrous if I spurge here and as a result there is not enough money in the war chest when I need it. Though when you win, you should do whatever you like.

With this in mind, I headed toward the center of the 5th section, which is located in a recess that allows you to watch all the games around--the place where [Legendary Gambler], the boss of the 【Holy Land of Gambling】, sat in front of me.

He had rich white hair tied back into a ponytail, with a black vest and a white shirt, upon which laid a neatly knotted butterfly bow tie. On the face of [Legendary Gambler] appeared a fearless smile and he asked me, "What kind of game shall we play?"

The 【Holy Land of Gambling】 has countless methods of gambling.

The only way to beat [Legendary Gambler] is to choose 3 types among them and win 2 out of the 3 matches. Even if I attack him, there would be no response. I cannot even touch him.

Thus I did not do something useless and chose to play the most popular roulette first.

Nodding, [Legendary Gambler] beckoned to the roulette table rising from the floor.

At the same time, music began, playing to all the visitors in the fifth section that I have issued a challenge.

As the audience gradually gathered, the [Legendary Gambler] laughed, "Actually, roulette is my greatest specialty."

[Dungeon boss [Legendary Gambler] successfully subjugated]

[God Psalm 【Holy Land of Gambling】 Clearing Conditions [Excessive Victory] [Revenge] [Ultra Luck] have been met]

[Achiever granted a special ability [Probability Control (Probability Oscillation)] ]

[As a bonus for the first subjugation, achiever will be awarded a treasure chest [Price of the Bet] ]

[As a privelege for conquering, use of the Warp Gate will be enabled]

[Please be careful when using the Warp Gate]

[For those who have awakened the Psalms/The key figures of God’s Lost Psalms, a part of the 【God of Gambling】 divine power will be granted]

[As the collector is an important figure of a Greater God, the quality of the Divine Power collected will be inferior]

[Portions of the Divine Power rejected by this rule will be turned into an object]

[【Yatendouji】 has obtained 【God of Gambling's Gambling Dice - Noriyuki !!!]

[Activating the unique ability [Dungeon Plunderer (crying demons of other worlds)], it is possible to seize 【Holy Land of Gambling】]

[Would you like to steal?]

"Yes / No"

Placing the received Divine treasure [God of Gambling's Gambling Dice - Noriyuki], radiating a golden glow, as well as 3 treasure chests into the item box, I selected "Yes"

[Special Ability 【Dungeon Plunder】 has been invoked. At this moment, control of the 【Holy Land of Gambling】 will shift from the 【God of Gambling】 to Yatendouji ]

[From now on, please manage the dungeon at your own discretion]



Day 288 == Day 289 == Day 290



Day 289 RAWS

 “二百八十九日目”
 さて、今日は昨日手に入れた軍資金を元手にして、【賭博の聖地】の攻略を開始する。
 ドーム型カジノである【賭博の聖地】の内部構造は五つの輪が重なり合ったモノをイメージすれば分かりやすいだろう。
 最も広く攻略者というカジノを楽しみに来た客が多い外縁区は第一区とされ、順々に狭まりながら第二区、第三区、第四区となり、最深部であり中心部は第五区とされている。
 他の迷宮のように階段を見つけて潜る、という単純な攻略法ではなく、その区画で定まった金額を稼ぐか、あるいは同じだけの金額を支払う事で次の区画に移動が出来るようになっている。
 区画を移動する為の金額は移動する毎に跳ね上がるが、その分だけ区画の賭け金(レート)が上昇する為、困難ではあるが不可能ではない。
 それに一度でも区画を移動し、その際に発行される許可バッジがあれば何度でもそこまでは無料で往復できるので、ココで財産を失っても、外で稼いで戻ってくる事が可能だ。
 魔帝国や獣王国の重鎮や豪商などでは、定期的にココで遊んでいる者も数多い。
 ちなみに許可バッジは個人専用なので他人が持っても効果は発揮されず、また誰でも入れる第一区には必要ないので第二区から発行され、その色は第二区が銅、第三区が銀、第四区が金、第五区が白金となっている。
 それからココで出現するダンジョンモンスターはその殆どがディーラーや内部の飲食店のバーテンダーなどとして働いている為、闘技場系など一部のカジノゲームを除いて戦う必要が無い。
 そのため女子供でも普通にココでは見かけるし、運がよければ奥の区間にまで進む事が可能、という内部構造になっている。
 ここも純粋な力押しでの攻略は困難ではあるが、罠も無く、ある意味シンプルなのでストレスは堪らないだろう。
 そんな【賭博の聖地】を軍資金の力によって一気に二区画分移動し、真ん中の第三区でカジノゲームを開始した。
 発行された銀色の許可バッジをアイテムボックスに収納した後は、とりあえず全員でスロットを回す。
 スロットは高速で回転しているが、俺達ならビタリと目押しできるので安定して稼ぐ事が出来る。
 イカサマのようでイカサマではない、身体能力由来の能力なので、不正を監視しているサングラスをかけた青年型ダンジョンモンスター“黒服(ブラッククロース)”達の動きはない。
 それにしても、流石に第三区にあるスロットだけあって、一度の稼ぎは上々だ。
 賭け金は大きいが、その分の見返りは十分にある。
 十数分ほどかけて一定量を稼いだ後は、とりあえず復讐者達には闘技場(コロッセオ)系の賭博で稼いでくるようにと言って送り出し、カナ美ちゃんを伴って何をするか考えながら彷徨った後、俺はルーレットのテーブルについた。
 テーブルについた時には既にゲームが始まっており、ダンジョンモンスターだろう北欧系美人ディーラーによって回される回転盤(ホイール)。その上を転がるボールが三十八区分されたポケットのどれかに落ちる。
 ポケットには三十六までの数字が刻まれ、最初の0は緑で、後は交互に赤と黒で染められている。
 俺は最初なので見送り、他の客(プレイヤー)の賭け(ベット)を見物した。
 その後はしばらく少額を賭けてディーラーやホイールの癖がどうなっているのか観察しながら勝ったり負けたりした後、一目賭けという、特定の数字一つに賭ける事で配当が三十六倍になる大勝負に出て、無事に勝利した。
 途端周囲は凄まじい喧騒に包まれてしまったが、それも仕方ないだろう。
 今回俺が賭けたのは白金チップ二十枚。区画移動などによって減ってしまった軍資金の残りほぼ全てである。
 負けた時は出直す必要があったが、勝った事で俺の手元には一気に白金チップ七百二十枚の山が出来上がった。
 普通に国家予算に匹敵、あるいは凌駕する金額である。そりゃ騒がれてしまっても可笑しくないだろう。
 ただ多すぎて持ち運ぶのが不便なので、ほぼ全てを白金チップ十枚分となる黒金チップ――【賭博の聖地】でしか扱われていない――に両替してもらう。
 手元に残ったのは二十枚の白金チップと、七十枚になった黒金チップ。その重さを手に感じつつ、俺とカナ美ちゃんは復讐者達を迎えに行った。
 既に第五区まで移動出来るだけの金は十分すぎる程溜まったので、さっさと進む為だ。
 幸いにも復讐者達はちゃんと闘技場系のカジノゲームが集中している一画にいたので、探すのは簡単だった。
 見つけた時にはタイミングよく、復讐者の一撃で闘技場の王者が軽やかに吹っ飛ばされた瞬間だった。
 王者は連戦連勝の猛者だったらしく、勝敗予想では王者優勢だったらしい。その為復讐者が勝利した時の倍率は高く、復讐者に全額賭けていた四人はホクホク顔である。
 合流した復讐者達と先に進もうと思ったが、カナ美ちゃんの提案によって一旦【賭博の聖地】内にある飲食店で昼食をとる事にした。
 料理はかなり高額だったが、料理人型ダンジョンモンスターによって調理された料理は美味く、値段以上の価値はあっただろう。
 思わず数回ほど注文を繰り返した後、少し休憩してから移動した。
 次の第四区には第三区で一定量稼いだ――迷宮なのでパーティ全員の合計金額で上回れば良い――事によって無料で移動し、第五区には全員分の金を払って入場する。
 第五区は最深部だけあって到達できる者が他と比べて極端に少ない。
 その為そこまでの広さを必要としない第五区はこれまでと比べれば少々狭く感じるが、内装はどこぞの宮殿かと思うほど豪華であり、動く金額も桁違いだ。
 一勝負の勝敗で小国の国家予算が動く、とまで言われている。
 そんな場所だ、目まぐるしい程の盛者必衰が起こっているらしい。
 たった一度の敗北で全てを失う者も入れば、破産寸前からの大逆転に成功する者も居る。
 今も恰幅のいい中年のタヌキのような獣人が大勝負に負けて絶叫し、興奮からか顔を真っ赤にして勝利の雄叫びを上げている下着姿の半竜人が居る。
 分かりやすい反応だと思いながらそれを横目に通り過ぎ、俺達はとある一画に直行する。
 そこはまるで雑貨店のような場所だった。
 武具や魔法薬、書物や装飾品、握り拳ほどもある大きな宝石などが大雑把に区分され、統一感も無く数多く展示されている。
 商品の側には値札があり、売り物だとはすぐに分かるのだが、そのどれもがボッタクリではないのかと思ってしまうくらいの価格が表示されていた。
 しかし、実用的で強力な能力を秘める武具型マジックアイテム、【長寿】や【体内魔力増大】など強力な薬効がある様々な色合いの魔法薬、凄まじい魔力を内包した魔術書(グリモワール)、美しすぎて目が離せなくなりそうな宝物、不可思議な魔力を帯びた宝石などなど。
 鑑定してみれば、価格は確かに適正だと納得できる品々の山だった。
 何故【賭博の聖地】にこんな場所があるのかというと、そもそもこれ等は客同士ではなくダンジョンモンスター達との勝負に負けた者達がチップの代わりに賭け、結果として奪われた品々である。
 だが【賭博の聖地】に来る客ならともかく、ダンジョンモンスターがこれ等を得ても、正直使い道は無い。
 それならば、という事で賭けられた品々はここに並べられ、商品として扱われてココに来た攻略者ならば誰でも買う事ができるようになっている訳だ。
 一応、第五区以外の第一区から第四区までにも似たような場所はあったのだが、やはり最も質のいいのは第五区である。だからこれまではさらっと覗いただけで済ませてきた。
 だからこそ分かるのだが、やはり一目で分かるくらい、区画毎に商品の質は違っているようだ。無駄金を使わなかった甲斐があるというものだろう。
 ちなみに商品は一定期間、元の持ち主に優先的な交渉権があるので、展示されたからといって即座に他者が買える訳ではない。
 だから元の持ち主は金さえあれば買い戻す事はできるのだが、しかしそれは中々難しい事でもあった。
 賭けるとなると相応に高価な品である必要があり、そうなれば買い戻す為の金額も大きくなるからだ。
 ただでさえ賭けに負けてその代償とした物を買い戻すとなれば、その苦労はより険しいモノとなるのは明白である。
 そのため周囲には特定の商品を食い入るように見ながら、しかし溜息を吐いて諦めるように顔を振り、しかしまた食い入るように見ている者達がチラホラ見つけられる。
 賭けて奪われた品々がまだ誰かに買われていない事を確認し、誰かに買われないかハラハラしながら見つめ、そして誰かに買われるまで諦めきれない敗残者だ。
 そういう暇があるなら稼げばいいのに、と思いつつ、俺は掘り出し物を求めて物色を開始した。
 商品を手に取るたびに誰かの反応が有ったり無かったりしつつ、俺は一つの商品を手にとった。
 それは巨大な宝石だった。
 透き通るような青色をした宝石は、不可思議な魔力を帯びている。鑑定したところ、【封能の宝石(シール・ジェム)】というらしい。
 宝石ではあるが意思をもって握り締めればまるで風船のように握り潰す事ができ、潰すと封入されている【能力(スキル)】を獲得できる、という優れものだ。
 恐るべきことだが【賭博の聖地】では金銭だけでなく、様々な物を担保として、それに応じた金額のチップに替える事が出来る。
 武具などの所持品はもちろん、過去の記憶、自身の臓器、体内魔力の最大値、【職業】や【戦技】、感覚や積み上げた名誉などなど、所持している者ならば命 ですら可能――ただし【殴打脆弱】や【寒冷脆弱】など価値が無い、または所持者の不利益になるモノは担保にならない――だ。
 そして得たチップを使い、勝てば問題は無い。
 担保にしているものも問題なく帰ってくる。
 しかし負けた場合はどうなるか。その果ての一つがこの【封能の宝石】だ。
 これには【戦技】や【職業】など、形には出来ない様々な能力が内包されている。
 本来そういった類のモノを物質化し、他者に付与する術は存在しないので、【封能の宝石】は【賭博の聖地】にしか存在しないアイテムと思えばいいだろう。
 そんな【封能の宝石】は、ここには探せば数は少ないが幾つかある。
 他の区画ではショボイものしか無かったが、最深部だけあって上質な【封能の宝石】が揃うココではお目当ての品があった。
 それが薄緑色の【封能の宝石】であり、内包するのは【魔蟲ノ天敵】という、とある【神代ダンジョン】で得る事の出来る特殊能力(スペシャルスキル)の一つだった。
 復讐者の目的にとって、あれば非常に有用な能力である。
 【神代ダンジョン】で得られる特殊能力の一つという事から希少価値は非常に高いのだが、特定の存在には致命的である事と引き換えに利便性は低い事から、【封能の宝石】の中では余り人気は無い部類になるらしい。
 価格はやや安めの白金チップ三枚。
 確かにこの金額なら他のもっと使いやすくて有用なモノが買えるだろうな、と思いつつ俺は即座に購入し、復讐者に握り潰させる。
 すると不可思議な光が発生し、復讐者に吸い込まれていった。
 これで復讐者は【魔蟲ノ天敵】を得た。ココに来た目的の一つはこれで達成できたので、さらに物色していく。
 商品の中には高額過ぎる為、長年売れ残っているモノも数多い。
 しかも【英勇】や【帝王】が賭けに負けて支払ってしまった【封能の宝石】も幾らかあるらしく、目が飛び出るほどの高額ではあるが、その能力の欠片達が売られていた。
 買おうかとも思ったが、それはココを奪ってからでいいか、と踏み止まる。
 何せ賭博には運の要素が絡んでくるので、これまでのように奪えない可能性があった。それを踏まえ、最低限クリアすべき目標として定めていた復讐者の一件も無事に達成できた。
 なのにここで散財して、その結果必要な時に軍資金が足りなかった、なんて事になれば目も当てられない。勝った時に、好きにすればいいだろう。
 そう思いつつ、俺は第五区の中央、盆地のように周囲よりも低いため、全周囲から観戦できる場所に佇むダンジョンボス“伝説の賭博師(レジェンド・ギャンブラー)”の前に座った。
 豊かな白髪はオールバックに整えられ、黒いベストと白いシャツをビシリと着こなし、蝶ネクタイをしたダンディーなレジェンド・ギャンブラーは、不敵な笑みを浮かべ、俺に『どのゲームで遊びますか?』と訪ねてきた。
 【賭博の聖地】にある数々のカジノゲーム。
 その中から三種類を選択し、三戦の間に二勝する事でしか、この“伝説の賭博師”は倒せないようになっている。例え俺が反応すら許さない速度の殴打を繰り出しても、触れる事すらできないだろう。
 だから俺は無駄な事をせず、最初に最も得意なルーレットを選択した。“伝説の賭博師”は頷き、床からルーレットがせり上がってくる。
 同時に音楽も流れ、俺が挑む事が第五区にいた客にまで伝わった。
 次第に増える観客、不敵に笑う“伝説の賭博師”は、『実は私、ルーレットが一番得意なんですよ』と言って笑みを浮かべた。
