After leaving the Commerce Guild I head to the Adventurers and Mercenaries Guild.
Litsit’s name, it’s a place where adventurers and mercenaries gathered.
The Adventurers and Mercenaries Guild used to be a separate organization Well it still is a separate organization.
It just, there are many times when the work between an adventurer and a mercenary overlap so each guild is set up side by side in the same building.
The building becomes a place for both the mercenaries and adventurers to exchange information and job opportunities.
On the first floor is a bar which is typical for a Mercenaries and Adventurers Guild.
Is the reason why there is no other Mercenaries and Adventurers Guild in the capital except for this one because this world is originally a game
Hm… I think I need to confirm the existence of this kind of guild in the town that didn’t appear in the game.
I received many stares the second I entered the building but that’s all.
The reason why I didn’t receive the typical newbie bullying is the recent demon outbreak.
I’ve battled in the frontline.
I also shared my potions with many adventurer parties that participated in the battle.
I don’t know if they are thankful for me or not but at the very least only the people that’s been living under the rock won’t recognize me here.
Surprisingly information travels fast among the adventures and mercenaries.
Well, that’s not surprising considering the nature of their works.
No one wants to invite danger to themselves by receiving a commission from a strange person or an idiot.
Though some mercenaries or adventurers might take up a commission from that kind of employer in exchange for absurd pay.
“Welcome to the Adventurers Guild.
What can we do for you today
“I want to hire some people.”
“So you want to put a commission.
Please come this way.”
The receptionist is a beautiful woman.
I wonder if she could deal with the rough adventurer No, maybe it’s because she’s a beautiful woman the adventurer won’t dare to do anything to her.
The room the receptionist invited me to is soundproof.
This is because there are some commissions where it’s dangerous if the information about it were to leak.
The staff member who is in charge of listening to my commission is a man.
No! Of course, I’m not disappointed by fact that the beautiful woman left me here with a man.
“How may I help you”
“I want to make an investigation commission.
I want to hire several competent scouts.”
“Specifically how many scouts do you wish to hire”
“There are several places that I want to investigate so it’s hard to determine the exact number.
My estimate is I need about 20 people since if any scouts excel in working independently I don’t mind letting them work alone.”
The man writes on the board in his hand.
It’s a record board that serves as a notebook.
After writing in a piece of lambskin parchment or demonskin parchment, the surface of the board will then be thinly carved and will act as a notebook
The wood shaving will then be used as firewood.
If you throw it away I heard your superior will get angry at you.
In a sense, it’s an eco-friendly thing that produces no waste.
“Here is the list of places I want to investigate ordered by their priority.
I will assign suitable places to those who want to work with groups and those who prefer working alone.”
“I certainly have received it.
In that case, is there any options for our adventurers to refuse after listening to the detail of the places you wish to investigate”
After all, not all investigations are safe.
I will offer more pay as compensation for the more dangerous place.”
While nodding his head, the man continues to write on the board.
Well, rather than saying he ‘writes’ it’s more correct to say he filled the carved place on the board with ink.
He used a quill pen.
The feather of the pen is made from the feather of a bird-type demonic beast.
It’s said that the feather of a demonic beast lasts longer compared to a feather of a normal board.
I don’t know if it’s true though.
Other than a pen made by a demonic beast’s feather, there’s also ink made using a demon’s blood.
I wonder if it’s similar to ink made using squid ink.
I used to be surprised by the fact that demons and demonic beasts’ various body parts that are sold on the market can also be used to create everyday stuff like ink and pen.
By the way, a blackboard-Esque thing also existed in this world.
But the quality of most chalks is so bad to the point that a little rub will immediately make the writing unreadable.
Let’s forget the fact that high-quality chalks do exist and It was made using hardened ashes from burning the bone of A magical beast named Black Bullhorse.
It’s a cringe name.
“Hmm… But if we follow your system it would be impossible for me to record the exact amount of pay that will be received by our adventurers.”
“There will be base pay and additional pay depending on the danger of the site.
Of course, the pay for the guild will also be calculated using the same formula with extra.”
“Thank you very much.”
Needless to say, a guild isn’t a volunteer organization.
They need to pay the salaries of their staff, the building maintenance cost, and even the damage caused by some random drunkard that goes on a rampage and destroyed their facility.
Plus, the guild is also responsible to held a joint funeral of deceased adventurers that have no family.
I mean it’s going to become big trouble if the deceased adventurers’ body is left as it is and ended up causing a plague.
That’s why children aren’t allowed to become adventurers.
Frankly, if the guild accepts weak children that are going to die soon the funeral cost alone might put the guild’s finances in the red.
