Well, it’s a world of magic and a lot of wisdom, and I guess common sense is different from Earth.
“Huh? Did you gain skills without knowing that?”
“I didn’t get it because I just happened to get it, so I never thought I’d do anything with it.”
“Oh, lucky case.”
The blacksmith grinned and said.
“I think you’re thinking of going down the mercenary path, but that’s good. They’m would go crazy having Slaughter skills.”
For mercenaries specializing in hunting, I was told that collecting monsters by-products was quite a difficult.
There is a considerable amount of time spent skinning monsters and separating bones from hunting grounds.
Nothing is more dangerous than staying in one place for a long time, while smelling of blood.
So most of the time, they only take important parts that are easy to pick up and afford, or use the means of transporting the body to the butcher.
In any case, it is obvious that this was very inefficient.
On the other hand, it is very natural for mercenaries to prefer slaughter skills, as they can save more time and money if they have slaughter.
The difficulty of the quest will be drastically lowered if I have colleagues to join me in the monster hunt.
“If you are interested. I can introduce you to some nice guys if you want.”
“Do I have to register as a mercenary?”
“It’s not legal, but it’s better to do it. That way, the guild will mediate between distribution of compensation or trouble with other mercenaries. It’s not hard to register a mercenary. We have a small branch in our town.”
“I’m definitely interested, but I don’t intend to hang out with other mercenaries right now.”
First of all, I have to get used to the equipment I’m going to match with the skills I’ve gained.
“As expected. Well, a style like yours lasts long in the mercenary industry. I respect your opinion.”
The blacksmith patted me on the back with his thick hands and asked me to follow him.
There was in the studio behind the store as I followed him.
“You’re standard in size, so there’s a lot you can wear right away. If you don’t like anything, I’ll customize it for you. But in that case, it’s about 30% more expensive than standard equipment.”
I nodded and looked mainly at the lightweight armor that was highly athletic.
Originally, I was planning to buy armor with a breastplate added to leather in with his gold coins, but thanks to Gordon, the budget has increased considerably, eliminating the need to stick to the previous plan.
“Is your budget about two gold coins?”
When I looked at the equipment classified as high-end, the owner asked wondering.
Maybe the owner thought he knew my money.
But I had a bonus from the unexpected quest.
“I got support from Gordon yesterday. It’s about seven gold coins now.”
“Oh, that’s good news.”
All expenses except living expenses will be used to prepare equipment.
Because of yesterday’s incident, I realized that if there is an opportunity to strengthen myself, it would be better to strengthen myself unconditionally.
The owner of the blacksmith’s shop, who glistened his eyes, took out a heavy wooden box, saying that he would recommend his best equipment in his store.
And what he pulled out was a dark blue leather armour plus a non-glossy breastplate.
The design was the same as the Orc leather armor I was trying to buy, but it looked extraordinary in many ways.
“I made a Brest plate out of black iron, four times more expensive than normal iron, it is made of a mixed of trolls and lizardman leather. It’s probably hard to see anything better than this.”
In addition, the armor consisted of a black iron plate and a gauntlets.
“How much is it?”
“The original price is eight gold coins. But you’re also a town hero, so I’ll give it you for seven gold coins. It’s a price where I didn’t even get paid properly.”
Considering that the regular iron full plate armour was a five-gold coin, this was an extremely expensive price for the leather armor.
But fascinated by the armor recommended by the owner, I decided to buy it without much hesitation.
“That’s a good choice. He’s finally meeting an owner.”
Leather armor is an armor worn by mercenaries who value activity.
However, most of the mercenaries visiting this village were not high-ranking, and the eight-gold armor was a luxury for them.
The owner of the blacksmith’s shop said he would give it to me cheaply because I was a benefactor of the village, but I suspected that he might have handed it over at a reduced price because no one bought it.
“It perfectly fit you without any other needed adjustment. If there is anything uncomfortable you can ask me for any adjustment.”
Now that I’m wearing a proper armor, I look like a hunter.
