Day 350


Should be good to go! Blu~



Day 350


Since training is likely to be unsuitable if the environment is too easy, I will pair with Minokichi-kun for the morning training.


We begin our assault at the bottom of a hole that was dug deeply so as not to damage our surroundings, repeatedly punching and kicking only with pure physical ability.


The hard, huge fists of Minokichi-kun are perfectly resistant to damage, and if you actually accept its damage, there is enough power for your meat and bones to be crushed. If you deliver a poorly placed kick, it will be blown away by his defense and you will find yourself devastated by a continuous attack of angry drilling waves that keep searching for a fatal gap.


So I bear that in mind and try to parry, or break his posture, as much as possible but here so also there has been improvements to his techniques compared to earlier, so that the only way to fight would be to change from any anticipated behavior.


And anyway tough, muscled armor would have received most of the attack's blow. So I focus on attacks that penetrate deep into his system bit by bit, but it seems even that is not very effective.


Overall I had already won, but since there is no big difference between the amount of damage given by me and the resilience of Minokichi-kuni, it will take some time to set in.

For the time being, I went straight to lunch without resting from the morning sparring, so my whole body was sweaty, muddy, painted with the blood, and covered with blue bruises.


If I also leave Minokichi-kun as he is, he will heal quickly on his own. I then decided to go to the hot springs in order to feel a bit refreshed.


At the entrance of the hot springs is 【Demon's Hot Water】. As you slowly soaked and wash your body with the chitin, the accumulated fatigue inside melts away, like a dream.


There is a feeling that even small injuries of the body will heal with the effect of the hot water, along with a feeling to being born again. Although it's a bit itchy.


As I think that, I leak out a voice of ecstasy 『Ooh』. Minokichi-kun also seems to be comfortable, taken from his likely 『Bumoo』.


While I soak leisurely there, I drink Demon liquor along with a knob made of cloned Heroes. I kept soaking lazily in the hot springs until around noon.


Ability learned: 【Piece of Wisdom】


Ability learned: 【Existence Degradation】


Ability learned:【Heroes Pedigree】


Ability learned:【Replicable Hero · Replica】




After drinking, I was able to learn some abilities from the pack and the knobs, it's good progress.


Well, I had been eating a good number of them. I thought it was about time.


So for this time's learned abilities, both 【Heroes Pedigree】 and 【Piece of Wisdom】 are easy to use, but for 【Existence Degradation】 and 【Replicable Hero】 it seems they need to be used in a special way.


I will think about it on another time, for now let's wait while I finish eating the rest of it, perhaps I can even learn something else.


I had been chatting with Minokichi-kun and two other demons while soaking in the hot springs for a while, when the topic comes up, Minokichi-kun's 『 I want to meet the current【Beast King】』, who heard the topic just a few days ago, so we speak roughly about the preparation for its conclusion.


Surprisingly it was easy to work everything out, speaking of being able to departure at any time, Minokichi-kun said he would go to see 【Beast King】 Earthy tomorrow, straight away.


Because we decided Asue-chan will advance with him to the front, it will be enough if we prepare one dragon beforehand rather than their marching by foot. If you fly, you can arrive much faster than overland.

But before that I came up with another thing I wanted to do, so I got out of the hot spring and took the 【Labyrinth Seed】 from my item box.


The 【Labyrinth Seed】 obtained by winning the [Holy War] is a suspiciously shining black jewel of the size of a palm, with magical powers that seem to drag in the gazes of anyone around.


I will plant this in the yard of the mansion for the time being.


Then, numerous black crystals rose from the place the seed was planted, and a tube extending from the crystal body pierced my torso. Soon after, not only an enormous amount of Magical Power but also even a little portion of my 【Divine Power】was vigorously drained by the buried seed.


It feels like being deprived of life force itself from the depths of my body, accompanied by a terrible malaise, and an unpleasant sweat started pouring from my whole body.


After a while the tube was pulled out and the drains momentum weakened. Apparently it seems that an invisible connection was created, leaving a feeling that the crystal body is continuously draining me.


For the time being, I repeatedly invoke several abilities, and while I recover by also gulping down the hot water of the hot springs, I summon a 【Demon's Howl Gate】as a test.


Then, a【Demon's Howl Gate】 was formed in front of the mansion.


Yes, it shouldn't be possible to build a 【Demon's Howl Gate】if it's not inside of a labyrinth.


Basically, the Magic Power and the 【Divine Power】 are not enough yet, and since it was just born it's still not perfect, but the base has become a place like a naturally enclosed type dungeon, due to the【Labyrinth Seed】's effect.


However, due to the lack of energy, it doesn't mean that you can freely set the settings as you'd like. Well, as time passes that problem will solve itself, so it's time for a long trip.

Still, I never thought that I would have my own dungeon that I could build from the ground up.


I'm really glad we overcame the [Holy War].


It has become really convenient, such as traveling with this.


Or also other various settings aside, I need to recover magical power until tonight to try pouring it in.


There are more things to do, it is likely to become busy from now on.

  “三百五十日目”

 環境が良いと堕落しそうなので、朝からミノ吉くんと組手を行う。


 周囲に被害が出ない様に深く掘られた孔の底で、純粋な身体能力だけで繰り返される殴る蹴るの暴行。

 ミノ吉くんの硬く巨大な拳は完璧に防いでも受ければ肉が潰れ、骨が粉砕されたかと思う程の威力がある。蹴りなど下手に受ければ防御ごと吹き飛ばされ、致命的な隙をついて怒涛の連撃を叩き込まれるに違いない。

 だから極力受け流す事を心がけるのだが、以前と比べて技術も向上しているのでコチラの体勢を崩しにきたり、予想外の行動を唐突にしてくるようになっていた。


 それにとにかくタフで、筋肉の鎧は大抵の打撃攻撃を受け止めてしまう。だからジワジワと内部に響く浸透系を中心に攻めていくが、あまり効果的とはいえないようだ。

 全体的に見れば俺がまだギリギリ勝っていたが、与えるダメージ量とミノ吉くんの回復力に大きな差が無いので、決着をつけるにはとにかく時間が必要だろう。


 とりあえず朝から休む事無く昼飯までぶっ続けで行ったので、全身は汗と泥と血に塗れ、青痣だらけだ。

 俺もミノ吉くんも放置しておけばすぐに治る程度だが、放置しておくのは気持ちが悪いのでサッパリする為に温泉に入る事にした。

 入る温泉は【鬼神の湯】だ。身体をキチンと洗ってからゆっくりと浸かると、内部に溜まる疲労が解け出していく様な夢心地。

 湯の効能で身体の細かい怪我も治っていくという実感があり、少々むず痒いが、まるで生まれ変わっていくかのような感覚がする。

 『あー』と思わず恍惚の声を漏らす。ミノ吉くんも『ぶもー』と気持ちよさそうだ。


 ゆったりと浸かりながら、クローン英勇をツマミに鬼酒を飲んで、昼からダラダラと温泉に浸かる。



 【能力(名アビリティ)【叡智の欠片】のラーニング完了】

 【能力名【存在劣化】のラーニング完了】

 【能力名【英勇血統】のラーニング完了】

 【能力名【英勇の複製品(ブレイブヒーロー・レプリカ)】のラーニング完了】



 酒を飲んではパクパクとツマミに手が進んだのが良かったのか、ラーニングできた。

 まあ、結構な数を喰っていたのだ。そろそろかな、とは思っていたところである。


 それで今回ラーニングしたアビリティだが、【叡智の欠片】と【英勇血統】が使いやすく、【存在劣化】と【英勇の複製品】は特殊な使い方をする必要があるようだ。

 そこら辺はおいおい考える事にして、他にラーニングできないか、気長にストックを消費しながら待つ事にしよう。


 温泉に浸かりながらミノ吉くんと二鬼だけで雑談していたが、話題が数日前に聞いたミノ吉くんの『現【獣王】に会いたい』になり、結論から言えば概ね準備は出来ている。


 意外と工作は簡単だったので、何時でもいけると言えば、ミノ吉くんは即断で明日【獣王】アースティに会いに行くと言った。

 前からアス江ちゃんも一緒に行くと言っていたので、足の用意は精製竜一頭居れば十分だろう。飛んで行けば、陸路よりも遥かに早く到着できる。


 しかしその前にやりたい事が思いついたので、温泉から出た俺はアイテムボックスから【迷宮の種子】を取り出した。

 【聖戦】に勝利して手に入れた【迷宮の種子】は、見つめていると何処までも引きずり込まれそうになる魔力を帯びた、掌大の怪しく輝く黒い宝玉だ。


 これを、取りあえず屋敷の庭に植えてみる。


 すると種子を植えた所から黒い結晶体が隆起したかと思えば、結晶体から伸びる管が俺の胴体に突き刺さり、身体から膨大な魔力だけでなく、僅かだが【神力】まで埋めた種子に勢いよく吸い込まれていくではないか。


 身体の奥底から生命力そのものを奪われるようなそれは、酷い倦怠感を伴い、全身から嫌な汗が噴き出した。

 しばらくすれば管が抜けて吸い取られる勢いは弱まったが、どうやら見えない繋がりでも出来たらしく、結晶体に継続して吸われている感覚がある。


 とりあえずアビリティを重複発動させ、温泉の湯をがぶ飲みして回復しつつ、試しに【鬼哭門】をイメージする。

 すると、屋敷の前に【鬼哭門】が形成された。

 そう、迷宮内でなければ造れる筈の無い【鬼哭門】がだ。


 簡単に説明すれば、魔力も【神力】もまだまだ足りず、生まれたばかりで完全ではないものの、【迷宮の種子】によって拠点は自然包囲型のダンジョン、のような場所になった訳である。

 ただエネルギーが不足しているせいで、これまでのように自由自在に設定を弄れるという訳ではない。まあ、ここら辺は時間が解決してくれる問題なので気長にいくとして。


 しかし最初から自分が造る自前のダンジョンを持つ事になるとは、思ってもみなかった。

 【聖戦】を乗り越えて、本当に良かったと思う。

 これで移動など、非常に便利になったのだから。


 その他にも色々設定したり、魔力を回復しては注ぎ込んでみたりしながら夜まで過ごす。

 やるべき事が増え、これからも忙しくなりそうだ。
