With the matter of the marriage interview being safely closed, I parted with Lunsan and Laursan and decided to challenge the 13th floor .
Before that, I checked my items and abilities . It might be self-flattery, but I think I grew quite a bit .
Now, going through a narrow pa.s.sageway that looked like it was meant for a challenger, I arrive at a s.p.a.cious circular arena .
With the ground being dry earth it would be easy to raise dust clouds here .
If they make use of it I’d hate it a bit .
The fighting area in the center and seats of the audience arranged in rising tiers surrounding it .
They went up quite a bit with a considerable number of seats as a result . Since all of them were filled with people it’s amazing .
At first glance, they appear like your normal humans, but that’s surely another product of this dungeon .
The upper floors also had human-shaped creatures .
A host-like person was in the arena and was riling up the audience with a voice that carried well throughout the place .
「Everybody, a long-awaited challenger is hereーー! Looks like he just casually came to get killedーー!」
I’m already p.i.s.sed, but I’ll endure .
Cheers not unlike warcries come from the audience seats .
Some are even calling for my death, so there is no doubt that I don’t have a home-field advantage here .
On the opposite side from where I entered was another pa.s.sageway . Is that where the stairs to the next floor are located?
The entrance was blocked with an iron fence, but several men, standing to the sides of it, pull it open .
「Bernard the Tiger!」
Shouted the host . A giant tiger charged from the opened pa.s.sageway,
Closing the distance at the speed that wouldn’t allow even a second of carelessness, it then leaped and unleashed an attack with its claws .
I avoid it, using a sidestep . I had enhancement from skills so I was able to do it with ease .
But, with immediate follow-up attacks, I had no time to appraise it .
For starters, I shoot several small 【Stone Bullet】 , about ten centimeters in size .
One of the shots accidentally hits it in the eye . It stopped . Let’s appraise it .
Name: Tiger Bernard
Skills: Sharp claws, Intimidating Roar, Killing Streak Enhancement .
The same level as me . I’d better check the second and third skills .
〈Prevents from moving those in 3 meters range . But it consumes a lot of stamina . 〉
【Killing Streak Enhancement】
〈Taking 5 lives within 30 seconds gives a huge buff for 3 minutes . 〉
Aren’t both of them pretty troublesome?
Since the howl can come at any moment, I’d better give up on trying to fight it in close combat .
Eh, charing with a roar? Is this even allowed?
Naturally, I tried to put some distance between us, but the opponent is faster .
I shoot 【Frozen Sphere】 at its feet . Hitting it, I freeze that spot, stopping the tiger’s movements .
Before the opponent starts moving again I pull out the magic bow and arrows from subdimension and prepare to shoot .
I release 【Exploding Arrow】 .
A strong explosion occurred when the arrow hit the body .
Since there was 【Enhancement of Bow Skills】the destructive power of bow attacks was increased .
This weapon, which I obtained during the incident with Gaien in the neighboring country, was quite a valuable one .
「As expected… It wouldn’t die so easily . 」
It’s glaring at me with bloodshot eyes . The pressure is quite intense, but the smoke was rising from some parts of its body, with flesh and bones exposed .
By no means it was unscratched .
When I was about to shoot the next arrow, the tiger ran away from me in the opposite direction . Jumping, it got over the wall and into the audience seats in the lowest sections .
No way, is it goingー
As I thought . It began indiscriminately attacking the audience .
Those that tried to escape were hit with Intimidating Roar . After which they stopped moving .
They are paralyzed by the effects of the skill .
During which the tiger bit off their heads or clawed them .
Killing about five or six of them, tiger Bernard returned to the arena .
Skills: Sharp Claws, Intimidating Roar, Five Kill Enhancement, Fire Resistance B, Water Resistance B, Thunder Resistance B, Ice Resistance B, Pain Resistance A .
The level has risen by 100?! And it got a whole bunch of resistances now .
Since it now attacked me, fully confident that there is nothing for it to fear, I give it a taste of 【Stone Bullet】 at maximum output .
It hit, its head is now bleeding .
It should have taken damage .
And yet it showed no signs of faltering, I guess that’s the power of 【Pain Resistance A】 .
It’s because the living have the sense of pain that they are trying to avoid the danger, preventing the worst from happening .
And now it was coming at me with no regard for any of that .
It might look like a defensive skill, but isn’t this actually an offensive one?
And that charge . I can’t block it with a sword . Bringing out the champion’s s.h.i.+eld I endure the attack .
「Ugh . 」
I stand firm, but my feet are sliding on the ground .
And yet I stand . Somehow . Now is my chance for a counterattack . Pulling out the double-edged sword from the sheathe on the waist I slashー
My body stiffened, becoming unmoving . With my sword still brandished I froze in place .
Then, came an attack aimed at my undefended body .
Move, move, move, I’ll die if I don’t!
Barely, but I managed to react somehow . …It hurts .
It got me . It cut me bad . But the wound isn’t that deep .
As my body regains its freedom, I step back .
I was just one step ahead .
Just barely, but I managed to escape out of the skill’s area of influence .
I braced for attack, but this time there is no follow up . It’s out of breath .
So it used the howl too much, depleting the stamina . This is my chance . Stopping with half measures I go for a sure kill, using 【Edit】 .
Making 【Killing Streak Enhancement】ineffective takes priority . Destroying it would take 1800 LP .
A bit costly .
I’ll change 〈Buff for 3 minutes〉 part .
『Three Minutes』 → 『One Minutes』
This is much more cost-effective, as it will take only 500 LP .
Since I’m quite sure that a minute has already pa.s.sed since it killed five people, I take this option .
Checking the level, it’s back to 148 .
The resistances also disappeared, so I decide to attack it with 【Explosive Arrow】 once again . I aim at the area where the flesh was already exposed .
The tiger leaks a low cry . It tries to charge me again, but it’s movements are clearly sluggish . Moving, I riddle it with normal arrows .
With this, the battle is decided .
As the tiger dies, the voice of the host once again resounds through the area .
「Would you look at that, this challenger, despite how puny he is, managed to overcome the first trial! Everyone, for now, let’s give a round of applause to this puny kid!」
No one responded to that .
Fine, it’s not like I was expecting anything of that sort .
More importantly, the fact that this seems to have a continuation worries me more……
The next enemy, unlike the tiger, entered the arena slowly .
I wonder if I can use this chance to slip into that pa.s.sageway, but the iron fence at the entrance immediately closed .
It seems that if I want to advance I have no other choice but to defeat it . The next opponent was a humanoid in a silvery full plate armor . Clearly of a smaller build than me . That’s quite unusual .
As it was now only a few meters away from me, I use appraisal .
Concealment seems to be at work here, so I can’t confirm the abilities . However, I was able to appraise a huge morning star it was carrying .
Rank A, with 【Wind Blast】 attached to it .
Just as the name would imply, it seems able to release wind on the attack .
In addition, the full plate that covered even its face had 【Physical Resistance C】 .
「Everybody, the armored warrior has arrived! Let’s enjoy his fight!」
Both the host and the audience were excited .
Now, a morning star would be cla.s.sified as a blunt weapon . There are several types, but the one in his hands has spikes on that iron sphere .
The diameter would be about fifty centimeters .
A long chain was going from it, linked to the hand .
I expect it would swing it around, attacking by using centrifugal force .
And just as I a.s.sumed, it swung it overhead and flung it my way .
I ran with all I’ve got .
Like this, I can avoid the direct hit by the iron ball for now . Upon collision of the iron ball with the ground, a small explosion occurred .
But the shockwave sent by it is incredibly powerful .
「Whoa . 」
Even though there was a considerable distance from it, the shockwave knocked me over . It seems like the whole arena is in its effective range!
After rolling I take a defensive posture .
But now dust and dirt, scattered by the shockwave, get into my eyes and mouth .
「Cough, cough . 」
I almost choked! And on top of it, clouds of dust are blocking my vision .
I’d like to rely on the sound, but with the audience being this noisy hearing isn’t of any help .
Since standing in one place is dangerous, I keep moving . And just when I did soー BAM!
The iron b.a.l.l.s dropped right next to me .
「UWAAA . 」
Leaking a pitiful voice I was flung into the air .
Aaah, this type of flight isn’t to my liking at all……
And landing to the ground head first I slide on it . The wound on the chest that I got from the tiger stings .
I’d like to rest for a bit, but rest here means defeat . I stand up and fire 【Ice Needle】 .
Skillfully wielding his morning star the armored warrior crushes all of them .
There, I use 【Stone Bullet】 setting it to the maximum 100 .
I shoot it, but without trying to hit him directly .
Slightly lowering the trajectory, I’m aiming at the opponent’s feet . It’s really easy to cause a dust cloud here . So I’ll make use of it .
Before the enemy disappears from sight I properly memorize his position .
Though it stays silent, I can see that he is nervous from his movements . But that sight also soon was hidden behind the clouds of dust .
Taking out the penetrating spear I dash at the enemy with great vigor .
With all my might I lunge where the armored warrior was a moment ago . I hit something .
That armor has physical resistance, but I have 【Penetrating】 here .
With a run-up, it should easily pierce through C rank . And my aim was true .
Since it broke its stance, I then used the double-edged sword to finish it off through a gap in the armor .
This one most definitely is a monster as well . A normal human wouldn’t be at such a place .
「What a twist! Who could’ve expected this! To think such a boy would manage to take down the armored warrior as well!」
It’s amazing that the host remained unscratched with all that . The entirety of the arena was a danger zone .
Anyway, according to his announcement, the next opponent is the last one .
Eeeh, so I still have to fight……
I collect my weapons before the next opponent shows up .
The skill on the blasting morning star remained there .
Putting it into storage as well, I await the next opponent .
I’d be happy if it was someone weak…… But surely a strong one will appear……
Let’s focus .
