Chapter 163 – Basement Gacha
The next day.
“Okay, let’s do our best for today too.”
“You look tired from this morning.”
“Don’t worry about it.”
I feel like Shumel is giving me a pitying look, but I shouldn’t mind it. In fact, I’m fine. Look, the maximum limit of my physical strength and stamina gauge is only about ten percent down.
“Hmm, I’ll do my best again today.”
“Have a good day!”
“Take care of yourself, Danna-san.”
“I wish you the best of luck.”
Everyone’s skin is glowing. I guess that’s what happens when you take a bath in the morning and eat a good meal, hahaha.
“Are you okay?”
“It’s just like usual.”
In response to the worried look on Tozume’s face, Ms. Zamir says in her accustomed manner that there is no problem. Yes, there is no problem. There is not. The maximum limit will be restored in less than an hour. It’s actually safe.
“Today is going to be a different kind of exploration than yesterday’s dungeon, right?”
“Yes, you’re right. I believe there are a few small basement spaces scattered about.”
“Yesterday’s ruins were a large shelter for the rich, right? So is it a private shelter?”
“Hmm, it’s a possibility. Or it could be a basement warehouse of a merchant or something.”
“Yeah, that sounds like a possibility. If you take care of the humidity, it’s suitable for storing goods, and it’s also a strong security measure.”
Leaving Pirna and the other Harpies to take care of the field, we walked on foot through the wilderness. The Grand Dragon of the earth attribute, Grande, has already detected the basement of the surrounding area with magic and has already marked the place where there is a good basement space.
The location of the marked areas is also known by Shumel and the others who investigated together so that we won’t get lost.
“It’s so hard walking around like this. I think it would save a lot of time if we could quickly build an airboard that everyone could ride on.”
“Hmm, sure. Since Kosuke has plenty of materials, we might as well make it tonight.”
“Yeah, I guess so. The basic idea is to make the prototype airboard as large as possible, increase the size of the levitation magic tool to support the weight, increase the size of the propulsion system as well, and equip it with wind-attribute barrier magic.”
As I walked along, discussing with Isla about the design of a fast-moving magic tool, we soon arrived at our destination. It seemed to be a short walk, but the height of the sun indicated that we had walked a long way.
“Here we are.”
“Fumu, so the basement is here.”
“Hmm. This place… It seems to have collapsed a bit around here. There’s some dirt in there.”
“Then we’ll have to dig around here. Grande’s underground sonar is very convenient.”
“Fufufu, yes, yes, yes, it is. You’d better praise me more.”
I’ll be sure to pat Grande on the head as she proudly stretches out her thin chest. In fact, I feel like I’ve been relying on Grande a lot lately. No matter how much I praise her, I can never praise her enough.
“Okay, let’s dig.”
“I’ll leave it to you.”
“We’ll be counting on you.”
While listening to Bella and Ms. Zamir’s words behind my back, I take out my Mithril Shovel +9, which is registered as a shortcut, stick it in the wilderness, and start removing the soil. With this shovel, which can remove a large area of soil with a single swing, digging up a buried crypt is no problem.
“The entrance has started to appear.”
“It’s so early…”
It only took about five digs to find it.
As soon as it was confirmed that it was safe, Shumel and the others went in… but they soon came out together.
“This place is terrible.”
“Most of the stuff has decayed, probably because of the soil. I don’t see anything of note.”
“Seriously? Well, there might be some things that can be repaired, so let’s collect all the junk.”
I entered the basement, which was confirmed to be safe, and sure enough, as Shumel and the others had said, nothing decent remained.
I was able to recover some of the junk, but… I’m looking forward to repairing them.
“Let’s go next.”
We opened several basements in this way, and the work went smoothly without any particular danger. There were many basements that were not good.
The basement gacha is too bad. What’s going on? I thought to myself.
“Oh! It looks like we hit the jackpot this time.”
When the whole atmosphere had become somewhat dull because of all the disappointments, Shumel’s cheerful voice echoed from the basement where she and her team had entered. We’ve finally found a jackpot! Isla and I went into the basement with them, and we were delighted.
“There are so many books!”
“Hmm, this is great. It must have been the home of some scholar or something.”
There was a room that looked like a library or something, with stacks of books packed tightly together. I could see a table in the back of the room, so it might have been a basement study or a laboratory.
I put more and more books in my inventory and checked the names of the books. And then…
・Adelian’s Scripture of the Omit Kingdom, 109th year edition (state preserved)
・Two manuscripts of the 109th edition of the Adelian scriptures of the Omit Kingdom (state preserved) x 2
“There it is! The Adelian scriptures! The original and the manuscript!”
Isla, I really wanted you to say, “Nice work!” Of course, there was no way the story would get through.
“Oh? Did you find the book you were looking for?”
“It took us only two days to find it, after all the trouble we went through to set up the accommodation.”
That’s true. If we could have found it so quickly, we wouldn’t have needed the fields… No, but we still have a safe place to sleep, a source of water, and some food supply capacity there, which will help us develop the area around the rear base. It’s not a complete waste, so I wouldn’t worry about it.
“It would normally take a long time to locate and dig up a basement. This is thanks to the power of Kosuke-dono and Grande-sama.”
“Yes, I am very capable, after all!”
After being praised by Ms. Zamir, Grande put her hands on her hips and proudly stretched out her thin breasts. I wonder if she likes that pose? I think it’s good because it’s cute.
“I’ll take it back to the base and try to decipher it. It will be disappointing if it’s not what I expect.”
“That’s true, too.”
If the teachings of the current mainstream of Adelian claiming to eliminate subhumans are not intentionally falsified but are the teachings from ancient times, the position of the Adelian nostalgists will suddenly become severe.
When I took out the book I wanted from my inventory, I found that it looked surprisingly solid, perhaps because of the way it was stored. It must be at least three hundred years old, though. I wondered if it was the effect of the brackets that preserved its condition.
“The magic that preserves the condition is firmly in place. Let me see.”
Isla took the thick Adelian scripture from my hand, flipped through it, and checked the back cover, the inside, and the last page.
“It was copied thirty years before the fall of the Omit Kingdom. Chronologically, it corresponds to what the Saint of Truth is looking for.”
“Now, it’s just a matter of what’s inside… But looking at the books we found, there are a lot of manuscripts as well as originals in the other books. It may have been the warehouse or workshop of a copyist.”
“I see. I can understand why there were so many books here.”
“Books are expensive.”
“Is that so?”
Even now, three hundred years after the fall of the Omit Kingdom, printing technology in this world has not advanced much. Fumu, printing technology, huh…? It’s a technology that seems to be quite dangerous to spread. For now, I’ll have to pass.
“The goal was accomplished for the time being. I was expecting it to take longer, but it didn’t take long.”
“It’s a good thing it was done quickly.”
It was a stroke of luck that we were able to dig up the copyist’s underground warehouse at the right moment. It’s so convenient that I even suspect that the person who threw me into this world had set me up… Well, there’s no way to be sure, and it’s fine as long as it’s convenient for us.
“Since we’ve found what we’re looking for, there’s no need to search any further. Can we just call it a day?”
“We’ll do that. Is that okay?”
When I looked at them, Isla and Ms. Zamir both nodded. Grande? Grande is yawning like she’s not interested. I think it’s natural for Grande to react since she’s probably just following me rather than coming to search for scripture. I don’t think Grande would be interested in a book that can’t be eaten.
“Okay, let’s go back then. We should go back immediately.”
And while Isla is working on the deciphering, I will make a large airboard that we can all ride together.
I think it will be useful in some way.

TFTC! “There are no coincidences”
Thanks for the chapter
Man, whoever that owns the book warehouse must’ve spent all of his fortune to fortify and optimize the storage room.
