I Found Tiny Dungeon That Can Only Produce Metal Slime – Chapter 50

Chapter 50: Fire Demon

As soon as you reach the second level, you must immediately head for the caves that lead to the lower levels. Since the location of the caves varies from floor to floor, you will have to spend a lot of time and effort to get there.

A few of your colleagues can be seen here and there. However, most of the explorers seem to have gone to the lower levels, and the shallow floors are occupied by Self-Defense Forces who are investigating something.

Moreover, while walking in the dungeon, you will encounter fire-breathing small skalengecks and fire-breathing turtles.

But I ignored them all and went straight through. And then I arrived at the tenth layer.

The crimson canyon stretches on unchanged from the first layer.

All right, let’s do this!

The president puts the large bag he was carrying on the ground and takes out a disassembled weapon from inside it.

Maika and Tanaka also take out their weapons from their bags. Tanaka takes out his dagger and helmet, which he always uses. Tanaka puts on his sports glasses and wraps a towel around his neck.

I haven’t done anything yet, and I’m already sweating.

Maika joins the three sticks together and makes it into a long club. It seems to be her weapon of choice.

The president had a stick connected to it as well, but it was a thick hexagonal cudgel, which was clearly different from a regular cudgel.

“That’s a very sturdy looking weapon.”

“Oh, I got this custom made by a guy I know. It’s a little rough around the edges, but I like it.”

The president takes out another dagger from his bag. It seems to be the same kind of magic-imparting armament that Tanaka always uses.

The President grips the hilt of the dagger and puts all his strength into it… and countless thin blue lights stretch out across the sword. It’s as if blood is flowing through the sword.

After a while the light subsided and the president held the dagger out in front of Yuma.

Here, I enchanted it with water. Keep it with you for protection.

“What? You put magic power in me?”

Magic power is finite, so if you use magic in the dungeon, your magic power will decrease.

Are you sure? You used your magic power for me…”

“It’s no big deal. I can’t store magic so it’ll be gone by tomorrow but I should be able to use it a couple of times today. If you’re attacked by a powerful demon, stab it with it!”

Yes, yes!

Yuma fastened the sheath of his dagger tightly to his belt. 

So, you got the usuals?

Yes, here…

Yuma drops the bag he’s carrying and takes out what’s inside.

They are three thin sticks, but they are not a cudgel. When assembled, they became Yuma’s favorite ice axe.

“There’s a Salamander monster in the tenth level, but other than that they’re not that strong. You should be able to defeat it with that weapon.

The president puts a long, thick hexagonal club on his shoulder and looks around as he walks.

“Oh! There he is!

The president looked at a place where the ground was slightly raised. He shouts “Yo!” and raises his hexagonal club. He raised his hexagonal club and slammed it into the ground.

Yuma was startled, but then something came flying out of the raised ground.

“What? What?”

It is a small creature about 20 centimeters long. It has long whiskers and very small, perhaps degenerate eyes. This is a–

A fire mole. It breathes weak fire, but it’s not much of a monster.

The president swings his club lightly and strikes the fire mole. Whee!” and with a short scream, the little monster burst into flames and vanished.

“Well, that’s about it. Listen Yuma! We’re professional Seekers! We don’t just hunt demons. We have to choose the right demon to kill in order to get the gems efficiently. In short… we have to kill them for money.

I’m sure that’s true.

“This fire mole is the most efficient one in the tenth level. It’s low-risk and relatively easy to kill. They live in clusters, so they’re easy to find. The drop rate is a bit high. Yuma! You’ll have to hunt this one.

Yes! Yes, sir.

“You don’t have to be so uptight. Maika can show you how to do it.”

He looked at Maika and smiled, saying he’d leave it to her.

“Tanaka-san and I will go down to the lower levels and get the magic gems. Meanwhile, you two stay here and hunt the fire mole.

Yes, sir!

“I’ll do my best!”

Yuma and Maika replied cheerfully and the president headed down to the lower levels with Tanaka.

All right, let’s get started.

Maika said and looked around as she walked like the President. She found some molehills and gave Yuuma instructions.

“I think there’s a fire mole near this molehill, so take a shot and hit the ground. You’ll get him when he comes running out.”

Uh, yes.

“I’ll give it a try. I don’t know if I can do it as well as you, but…”

Maika hits the ground with her club with a bang. The fire mole is startled, and leaps up dexterously with the end of his club.

Aiming at the fire mole as it flew into the air, Maika grabbed her cudgel.

At that moment the handle of the club in Maika’s hand glows slightly. –Water Magic.

A thin blue light streamed across the cudgel.

Maika swung her club lightly, and the fire mole popped and turned into sand, which scattered and disappeared.

“Hey! It’s easy.”

Maika smiled brightly. Yuma was taken aback by how brilliantly she did it.
