Day 388

We finished gathering the dungeon keys late in the evening yesterday and gathered in front of the gate to spend the night there.

Our 4 groups were ranked in the order of who finished fastest:

1st: Sato and Asue-chan

2nd: Kanami-chan and Sei

3rd: Minokichi-kun and Redhead

4th: The children and I

As for the result, my team was the last to capture its dungeon key since the safety of the children came first.

It seems that we spent more time than we thought fighting, as they were not only sight-seeing but I also sometimes weakened the monsters and let them fight.

Even though I let them attack a little bit more, it was fine for the level that the children are at now but, on the other hand, it may not be good since they could be killed in an instant, so it was such a thing to be worried about.

To tell the truth, I did not imagine that, of the four groups, Sato and Asue-chan would be at the top, apparently it seems that their time was shortened by Asu-chan moving forward while breaking down the sand walls.

After all, it is Asu-chan, who routinely crushes hard rocks for fun. Although it is harder than usual sand, and it is the wall of a 【Gods Age Dungeon】, she said that it is not so difficult to cut through.

During the battle, Sato rushes forward and almost kills herself searching for the shortest route, and that also added to their gaining such a ranking.

The second team, made up of Kanami and Sei, reached that second place while keeping themselves in a good order.

Both search and battle at a high standard of class, in some sense they are the most balanced team.

Even if they are misled by the maze, they are able to draw correct answers in a short time.

On the other hand, the third team, Minokichi and Redhead, ended up in the third place because they are low in search ability, regardless of their battle power.

Both are muscle brains, so it seems that results in their struggling with the internal structure that is a confusing and complicated structure.

While trying to figure it out they ended up losing.

Since I can not help it, I am going to receive the punishment game with confidence, but after eating breakfast I put the keys in and opened the door.

At the end of the corridor, there was a red - black sand giant that looked as if he had sucked a lot of blood, which is named [Shakaru Juarez - Venawasato - Kodensha Soldier of Sand Castle], the patron of sorrow of the sand castle.

I thought that it was a dungeon boss, but unfortunately it still seems to be just an area boss.

The length of his body exceeds ten meters, the lower body is a scorpion with huge pincers and a poisonous dripping tail. Each of the eight arms in the human-like upper body have huge weapons, an armed thick heavy body made up of hardened sand. A spiral staircase leads to the upper floor behind the "Kodensha Soldier of Sand Castle" that appears to be wearing full-body armor. If there is a such a thing here, can we call it a mini-boss before reaching the dungeon boss?

We had to defeat other "Kodensha Soldier of Sand Castle" in order to get the keys, but the Knight Guard soldier I defeated just had a circular sword, the one Kanami's group killed had an ax, Minokichi's target had a spear, and the soldier Sato's group defeated had long daggers.

Now, the "Kodensha Soldiers of the Sand Castle" we faced looked as if they were all united, he was just looking towards the intruders before he gave a roar of anger.

Technology can be contested against the appearance of an opponent like this that is super class. Besides a variety of attacks due to its weapons, the pincers of the lower body and piercing attacks of its poisonous tails can not be discounted.

Moreover, as long as the small eight cores in the body do not break, it constantly regenerates almost indefinitely, not only is it also possible to divide by as many times as the cores it has, but it also has an indiscriminate target range with a sandstorm like attack by sand storm. Beside all that, there are also many special abilities it is capable of doing.

The room itself also has the function to assist the "Kodensha Soldier of Sand Castle", making it much stronger than if we were fighting outside.

It is a dungeon monster at the level which will be forced to totally annihilate if fought normally, or to be forced to withdraw to prevent some from dying.

However, this time his opponent was simply too badly matched this time.

That being the case, a ruthless ruin falls on the "Kodensha Soldier of Sand Castle".

[Successfully subjugated Area Boss [Wasato, Kodensha Soldier of Sand Castle]]

[Treasure box as the 1st subjugation bonus [Sand phantom warrior coffin] was awarded]

Tens of minutes after the start of the battle, "Kodensha Soldier of Sand Castle" had somehow endured that long because of its toughness, we managed to remove all of the cores by reading its movements and all that was left behind was a large amount of reddish sand.

In the meantime, I ate the cores, collected sand with [the whole plant] and compressed it with [high compression]. Altogether, it's enough to make a giant golem. While I tried to compress it, it became more difficult after it reached the size of a human head.

I tried to eat it with pakuri, but that became difficult after compressing, it reached a hardness which can not be shaved, even with a mithral knife.

I also thought that I could not learn anything from eating it, but I had a feeling that it was just a bit away from learning a new skill.

As expect, a bit later we went up the spiral staircase.

The spiral staircase continued steadily whether or not we were fighting in that confined space.

Apart from the occasional battle with dungeon monsters, did we really take a short hour going up?

A huge boulder rolled down from the top of the staircase, the steps of the stairs suddenly disappeared and it looked like a slide, a lot of sand came down in a wave from the top, and after all that, the spiral staircase where a gloomy trap filled atmosphere settled on us finally came to an end.

Before the spiral staircase, was an big open room over hundreds of square meters.

In that case, this is where stairs led to, and it left me wondering if there were some big windows that would let us see the outside.

There are no decorative items to give the large rooms any color, or even any furniture such as chairs and desks. I thought that the dungeon boss of the [Temple of the Sand Castle] would have a suitable throne sitting here, but it was bewildering that there really was nothing.

Well, in such a large room with nothing else even the boss was missing, thinking so, I was walking towards the center of the large room when a part of the sand floor began to rise.

The sand overflowed like a gobo gobo, it eventually formed into a monster.

The lower half of the monster is a huge scorpion in a strange shape, as if it was wearing a vampire black violet spotted shellfish, and the upper half of the body looked like a clean woman with blonde dandelion hair looking like a beautiful demon.

If you only look at the upper body, there is a hard and inviolable atmosphere like a [saint] around it, but the lower body with four violent pincers and three venomous tails stands out just as much.

It was a dungeon boss called "Shakaru・Female Teacher of the Sand Castle" that appeared.

"The female teacher of the Sand Castle" gives off a sense of intimidation suitable for the dungeon boss of the [Temple of the Sand Castle] just when she opened her eyelids and glared at the surroundings with red eyes.

Did she recognize us reflected in them as an enemy, "Are you OK!?" it emits in a shrieking scream.

Her grudge was put in that scream, it shocked and trembled the big room while rippling the surroundings. Instead of a metaphor, the large room ruffled literally.

The change from there was dramatic.

The undulating surroundings are overflowing with sand that springs up like when the "Female Teacher of the Sand Castle" appeared, forming monsters one after another.

First of all, thirty bodies identical to "Kodensha Soldier of Sand Castle" we killed to gain the keys appeared. After that, two "Soldiers of the Konju guards" appeared.

Dungeon monsters that we fought before have appeared but, unlike before, and it seems to be the case they are one or two times lower in levels than individuals who we have defeated, but there are plenty of numbers to compensate for it.

The large room where there was considerable free space is now the enemy's nest, and a wall to protect the dungeon boss was built. (E/N had to delete the name, it just started to sound too repetitive, I'm sure we know the boss' name)

From those actions, it seems that the "Female Teacher of the Sand Castle" is stronger as the leader of a flock than a singular piece, the enemy's pattern of attack that tends to be a dungeon boss.

Whether you are ready or not, the "Female Teacher of the Sand Castle" began to spin [magic] using the devil magic held in her hands while being protected by the underlying wall, and in parallel with that she was spewing a light purple poison smoke from the three tails.

Just from looking at it you can tell the poison smoke is very toxic and it seems dangerous even if to someone that has [Tolerance]. Moreover, it can be inferred from our experience that the [Magic] being spun is a powerful single hit which can even destroy the gathered subordinates.

It seems that her head is not bad because she understand her own role and demonstrate it to maximum effect, so it is likely that unpleasant behavior will increase if I chase her.

While watching the details, I slash with the second sword that I wore on my back.

In accordance with the activation order I used, 【Arc Moon Flight Slow】 【Storm Wind · Reform】 【Saint Cross Strike · Reform】 【Reinforcement of the Great Cut Stimulus】 etc. with duplicate activations.

Also I add in a similar line several strains of [Warrior Arts].

Black and white, and the flying slash colored with red phosphorescence ripped out towards the dungeon monster who were in the direction we would have to travel, and the "Female Teacher of the Sand Castle" lurking behind that red - black sand wall instantly produced a blade.

But the red-black sand walls did not seem to have been just rigid or hard.

The sand wall broke down as though it were brittle, with a harsh sound as it was a thick metal sheet, but the blade has not arrived yet.

Was she afraid of the imminent "death" near her, or was it anger against rude invaders?

That's an unknown part of the "Female Teacher of Sand Castle" that outperformed herself with that attack, along with a roaring scream, it was a sign of the commencement of a full-out battle.

While the remaining dungeon monsters are going on the offensive, this also raises the desire to fight in their enemies.

Minokichi's rush with Burosato's shelling blood sword attacks.

Kanami's demonic ice freeze, with Sei's magic meteor-like attack.

A beast-like attack from Redhead and ranged attacks of the children.

Although it is wide room, this is a space covered with sand walls around us.

The roar that shakes the makes the body reverberate and vibrates the entire room, as if it had happened during a big earthquake.

The battle becomes fierce over time, and traces of the fierce battles are engraved all over the big room.

Dungeon monsters that have more toughness than strength because of their characteristics take a little more time, but we have already experienced them in battle.

I also knew how to kill them, so I almost scoffed as a long thirty minutes passed before the battle was over.

At the end, the lower part of the scorpion was cut off and the red core, the heart, was scooped out by my silver arms and we ended with wiping out the rest of the mobs.

I was thinking about getting delicious meals out of the body afterwards, but the "Female Teacher of the Sand Castle" broke up into sand, only leaving the core in my hand.

Why is it so?

[Dungeon Boss "The Female Teacher of the Sand Castle" was successfully suppressed]

[Clear condition of the divine psalm [Temple of the Sand Castle] 【The Sandstone Castle Tower】 【Annihilation of the Army】 【The Teacher Capture】 was achieved

[Special ability [One Night Sand Castle] was granted to one person who gained the achievement]

[Treasure box [Fantasy Sand Castle Pillar] was awarded as the 1st subjugation bonus to the accomplishing party]

[As a privilege for conquering, the ban on the use of the Warp Gate is lifted]

[Please note that only those who conquered the dungeon can use the Warp Gate]

[For those who have Awakened the Psalms/The key figures of God’s Lost Psalms, a part of the [God of the Sand Castle]'s 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  【Sand Castle God Sand Tree Vase】was obtained! ]

[It became possible to dominate the labyrinth by the effect of the special ability [Labyrinth Plunderer / Cynomanism]]

[By the following condition, you can loot the [Temple of the Sand Castle]. Do you loot it?

«YES» «NO»

The material gathered from the dungeon boss is only the core and the mass of the sand gathered by [high compression]. My shoulders dropped, but I will eat it at a later date.

【Sacred God Sand Tree Vase】 It is a simple pot about 50 centimeters in length, which has only one day but it changes to any structure Collect infinite sand - and treasure box and select «YES ».

[Special abilities [Labyrinth Plunderer / exoticism] triggered. From the present moment the control of [Temple of the Sand Castle] has transitioned from [the God of the Sand Castle] to Yatendouji ]

[Please be careful not to adjust labyrinths arbitrarily after that]

After that I fiddled with setting as usual.

We will scrutinize the treasure chests and other drops collected by Kanami - chan from "Kodensha Guard of Sand Castle" and increase the difficulty of capturing so as not to have it taken from us, as well as increasing the number of troublesome traps.

As well as setting up a [Demon Gate] in a newly built hidden room I completed.

The name was changed to be [The Demon Tower of the Sand Castle].

After I finish my work I drink a little labyrinth wine and go out.

It was around evening, so I'm looking forward to dinner from the sisters who will be waiting at «Mushuram · Gianna».
