Chapter 12 – The Robbing Evil God

I’m surprised that nobody has criticised me yet for trying to sell expensive bear drawings. Could it be that I rooted out all the humourless people with that 200USD half-chapter thing? Or is it just that my bear pictures are unexpectedly good?

After driving out the survey team-looking people, starting from two days later, the number of intruders suddenly jumped up. On a normal day, 3~5 parties will come to raid us. And because I got fed up with hearing the alarm each time, I changed the settings so that it would only ring once they reached the 4th floor.
At the moment, 80% of the intruders are defeated on the 1st floor, and most of the remainders fall on the 2nd. The only party that made it to the 3rd floor was the survey team from the other day who had come to challenge it again, and nobody reached the 4th floor.


『G-, God dammit… To… in a place, like this…』

Also, regarding observing through the dungeon core, it needs quite a bit of mana, but I managed to reform it so that I could hear sounds too.
The result was that I found out the reason that the survey team ‘s pace suddenly got worse on the 2nd floor. Apparently there’s miasma floating in this dungeon. Certainly now that you mention it, I do get the vague feeling that that word was mixed in amongst the attributes for the dungeon, but I want to believe that in the end it’s just the characteristic of the dungeon and not something that’s my fault. ‘Miasma’ or whatever kind of sounds stinky, so I’m absolutely denying it.

『What a sinister dungeon. The dungeon master has gotta be a pretty dangerous guy.』

『Yeah, we gotta brace ourselves.』

By the way, based on what I heard while eavesdropping on them, there are apparently lots of different types of miasma, but the miasma in this dungeon doesn’t do physical harm like a poison, but apparently has an effect on your mental state. Speaking simply, it amplifies fear, and is a troublesome thing because although this dungeon is one that you need to progress through really carefully even at best of times, the miasma increases your mentral strain right away. In the end it’s just a mental effect and can’t do anything to you physically, so apparently you’ll be alright as long as you keep yourself together, but the act of bracing yourself in itself brings about mental strain, so it’s a nasty one.

『Kuh-, the miasma is too thick! It’ll get dangerous if we go any further!』

『We’re only on the 2nd floor yanno!? If it’s like this on such a high level, just how terrible are the lower levels!?』

Perhaps as an effect of being linked to the exit, the miasma is thin enough that there’s almost no effect, but in comparison to this, the 2nd floor and below has thicker miasma by the level.
…Is it really because I’m on the lowest level?
No, no, the Evil God Aura is supposed to have a weak effect on humans, so it’s probably something else. That’s why I’m not in the wrong.


Proportional to the amount of invading adventurers, the amount of collected items have increased too. Honestly speaking, it’s taking quite a bit of time to sort the items that were collected. Even at a glance there seem to be some things I didn’t really understand mixed in there, so I had to throw them into the item box and check the name… and after I did all this, it ended up taking a surprising amount of time.
And even though I did the work with all my might, sadly, despite the amount of time it took to organise everything, there were a lot of things that I didn’t need. For things like mass-produced swords, no matter how many dozens of them I had there was no use for them, so I think I’ll have them brought to town and sold for money, but if people who should have lost their items in the dungeon saw them while shopping, it would definitely be suspicious so I can’t. In that case, I could just stop collecting them, but now that I’ve already started doing this, it seems that it’ll give birth to some weird speculations in the public if I stop halfway, so I’m hesitant to do so.
I should have told them just to collect the gold. I’m sick of seeing swords already.

『Aah… I’m done, my consciousness… A-, All I want… just my sword… this sword that took me two years of saving up for, can’t…』

And so, I’ve decided to try putting them in treasure chests.
Using the Dungeon Create skill, I created and installed a treasure chest creation box. The treasure chest creation box is a wonderful thing that places the things inside it into treasure boxes randomly around the dungeon. The treasure chest creation box is something that’s used to lure in prey, since normal dungeons steal mana by killing intruders. Placing things like strong weapons or expensive gems into the treasure boxes, they lure in prey using greed.
In my case, I throw in nothing but unnecessary things like weapons, so it’s almost used like garbage collection though.
But still, having said that they’re unneeded, weapons or whatever can be sold for fairly high prices, so it’s not as though it doesn’t attract customers. Moreover, once the news spreads that you can get back the things you lost in the dungeon from these treasure chests, it’ll be possible to sell things under the pretense that we found them in the chest. Well, if we do it too much, as you’d expect things would get suspicious, so we can only sell a few at a time though.
Also, I wasn’t really sure about having only these unneeded consolation prizes, so for roughly every ten, I’d mix in one with enchantment. They might be cursed, but looking at just my tantou, the stats should be good.

『T-, This sword is!?』

『We’d better report this to the church, or else, huh?』


“I am back, Anri-sama.”

“Welcome back.”

Tena had returned from selling things in the city.
Also, since the number of adventurers dropping by had increased, I created a backdoor for Tena to come and go through. I might be a little prejudiced, but about half of all adventurers are rough-looking men. If it were in town then it might be another matter, but I can easily imagine that if they met a girl like Tena in a place with few people, she’d definitely get mixed up with them in a bad way.
Of course, since I can’t say that she’ll be absolutely fine in town, I instructed her to buy a robe for herself to use in town, and not show her face too much.

“I have put the ingredients I bought in the food storeroom.”

“Thanks. And so, how about the thing I asked for?”

“Yes, please have a look at this.”

I asked Tena in an indirect manner like that, to go have a look and see how the Adventurers Guild was treating this dungeon, while she was out shopping. When I asked her about the result, she presented me one sheet of parchment.
This was written on it:

Request:             Suppress the dungeon master of the new dungeon south of Riemel, the “Wicked Cave of the Robber”
Reward:              30 gold coins
Requirements:  Present the dungeon core
Time Limit:          None

“Wicked Cave of the Robber?”

Did they discover some other new dungeon?

“It seems that the Adventurers Guild has named this dungeon as such.”

Wai-, they’re talking about this dungeon? Thinking about it, neither the adventurers nor the guild have any way of knowing the official name of this dungeon, so if you had to ask if it was obvious that they’d give it its own name, then yeah, it’s obvious I guess.
But still, by “robber”… Well, I mean, I certainly do take the items and gold of the intruders, so it’s not as though you can’t call me a “robber”, but even though I thought that we’d have a more positive image than other dungeons, the impression they have of us is cruel.

“Unlike other requests, this one does not need to be accepted, so as long as you meet the requirements, it seems that you can receive the reward. This paper has been distributed to all parties.”

Rather than a request, I wonder if it wouldn’t be more accurate to say that it’s basically a bounty already. That I’d have a bounty on my head is not something I could even have imagined when I first came to this world… is perhaps not something I can say, since the moment that I saw the skill explanations.
A reward of 30 gold coins is quite a large amoutn, so I can assent to the sudden surge of intruders. If the conquering of the dungeon doesn’t progress, then the guild will probably raise the reward, so the intruders will probably keep increasing from now on.
If this was a normal dungeon, then the intruders would die once they fell anyway, but as long as you don’t have a series of terrible coincidences, you won’t lose your life in this dungeon. In other words, unlike other dungeons, as long as you don’t give up you can try again, so even if the number of intruders increases, there won’t be much decrease.

I need to strengthen the dungeon to stop them from breaking through to the lowest level, at any cost. Having decided this, I decided to return to the office.

  1. Oh hey that was fast! Those poor adventures… is not what I’d say lol. Go get then Anri!

    Also I couldn’t find where to donate. The link with the donation imouto cyborg doll China girl leads me to a strange new world.

  2. “Wicked Cave of the Robber” ROTFL

    Really looking forward to reading about how she beefs up the cave in the future :D


      1. I don’t know why everyone thinks that I don’t know that “flusteredly” is not a word, and “swang” is not used around most of the world.

        If I was doing this professionally, there’d be bigger problems with the punctuation I’m using, but nobody seems to point that out.

        I’m writing this the way I want to, partially to popularise my vernacular.

  3. Wow what a cruel name! It sounds like some low level mob dungeon run by a gansta. X.x Hmmm but if you screw up the pronunciation “Robber” can sound like “Lubber” which can sound like lover? Wicked Cave of the Lover!!!!!! A much more evil sounding name kukuku. Though it’s a bit of a stretch!

    I lol’d at that guy who spent two years saving for his normal sword. He should be more aware of his limits. If Anri was running a normal dungeon it’d be his life he’d be begging for!

    That Miasma is so fitting too heh. Anri doing her classic denial of inconvenient truths made me crack a smile. She’s going to keep doing it isn’t she?

    The end makes me worried though. The adventures can barely get to the half way mark, and she’s going to up the difficulty? Ah well I guess she’ll be prepared if any true heroes come. It would be terrible if some guy in a Silver Mask strolled in the middle of the night and wrecked the dungeon. Gotta be prepared for anything!

    1. I am pretty sure, that THAT guy in a silver mask wouldn’t go for the kill, since Anri didn’t kill anybody and THAT guy is quite smart, so he’ll figure it out. =P

        1. The MC from Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyusoukyoku is very OP, but prefers to hide it, so he puts on a silver mask, whenever he goes on a rampage or raids a dungeon.

  4. So… Anri lets out a Miasma, does she (or at least her dungeon does)? Maybe her clothes not needing laundering is just her imagination – or even just her denial?

    My thanks to you, O esteemed holy sheeprabbit.

    1. If I have to guess, it’s like how Tena is empowered by accepting her, the dungeon gains terror-inducing miasma for having Anri as its master.


      1. Much more amusing to pretend that her clothes are exuding a “miasma” from god only knows how many days of uninterrupted use.

        Though I think she does manage to sneak in some baths while her clothes aren’t watching, so perhaps it isn’t as bad as it could be.

  5. Nice business model, with repeat customers and a bonus incentive of ‘cursed’ swords to attract more.
    Will she be adding another dozen floors or some nifty feature, I’m rather curious now.
    Thanks for the chapter. :)

  7. Thanks for the chapter.

    I like this dungeon.
    I’d challenge it several with average or weak equipment and no gold on my person until I had a good grasp of it’s structure and the different enemies and then I would go in with decent equipment (still no gold) and try to conquer it.

    1. O.o that’s a good strategy. I wonder why none of the adventures have caught on yet haha. They know enough to call it the DUNGEON OF ROBBER. Eh either they’re all arrogant and think they won’t be defeated, or their are no banks in this fantasy world.


      1. The church, as well as guild’s appraisors will analyze all those strange loots from this dungeon…

        On the other hand, depend on bonus, adventurers may still choose to use cursed items anyway, if they judge the risks are bearable.


  8. 『Aah… I’m done, my consciousness… A-, All I want… just my sword… this sword that took me two years of saving up for, can’t…』

    And already they feel secure about keeping their life in that dungeon? That was fast.

  9. 1. Gather items and curse/empower 1/10th of them
    2. Leave them lying around.
    3. ?????
    4. Profit!

    Also kinda curious about who made the dungeons themselves.
    They put me in mind of … what is it? angler fish? luring in both dungeon masters and the heroes who hunt them in order to feed on delicious mana….

  10. Of course it will annoy the dungeon boss, remind me how annoyed is for Arthas the Lich King from WoW when ICC launched and foolish mortals dare to challenge him to ended up getting bone spiked by Lord Marrogar again and again and again. Good days


  11. Heh, thanks for the chapter!

    This is becoming one of my favourite LN. It’s rare to have some light-hearted Fantasy LN with at least some humour in them, since so many translated WN/LN/Wuxia are focus on tensions and battles.


  12. “I’m surprised that nobody has criticised me yet for trying to sell expensive bear drawings. Could it be that I rooted out all the humourless people with that 200USD half-chapter thing? Or is it just that my bear pictures are unexpectedly good?”

    you are so wrong… nobody’s criticizing you because your bear drawings are CHEAP, that’s all XD XD XD


  13. … I just realize how similar this dungeon is to a gambling establishment. You are drawn in by the possibility of riches (bounty rewards). You lose your bet but not your life (robbed and stripped). You then wager your savings to get back what you lost (treasure chests). No? Idk the , weeeeeeeeeee~

  14. about the bear thing… it’s not that they are good, it’s that the ways in which they are non-standard are endearing. you are bad in an acceptable way, that make people think “this might be good on a greeting card”.
