The money from selling monster materials was divided into three portions. Nina and I are managing it now.
Lena feels that she is not contributing much however it was forced on her because she needed to collect a lot of gold to study.

Afterall he bought two item bag of grade 6.
” You didn’t buy any defence or resistance decoration? ”
” Oh, I decided to buy a better armor and weapon first. ”
The shopkeeper is trying to boot lick me. Even a child isn’t missing in his target of deception.
I then leave the magic shop and go into a blacksmith shop. I need to know if it is better to buy an armor or to make it my own. I need to know the craftsmanship level.
I walked trough 8 blacksmith and armor stores so far, only [blacksmith lvl 3] is the highest.
I was about to give up before I found a small shop, deviated from the main street and not many people are coming here.
I glanced at the shopkeeper.
|physical strength up:||Lvl. 3|
|Increased vitality:||Lvl. 2|
” Let’s look around. ” (Yu)
” I wonder why there is a shop here. ” (Nina)
” It was a dwarf.. ” (Lena)
The store look tattered and the dwarven old man doesn’t look promising. However I only cared about his products.
” Hello. I’m here to buy some equipment. ”
The dwarf without even smiling looks at us and stares.
” Did you think I’ll sell it to you? ”
No wonder with his attitude the shop is empty.
” Look old man, I’ve tried hard to find this shop. ”
” Who’s an old man? I’m still 60!”
(Yu: It’s old already.. Anyway I have to convince him to sell me something.)
” What are you looking for? ” (woods)
” I am looking for a sword, armor, and a gauntlet, Nina? ” (Yu)
” I wonder if there is a good weapon.. armor that’s light and easy to move in too. ” (Nina)
” Are you looking for one handed or two handed? ” (Woods)
The dwarf then goes back and comes to the front with a large sword about 150cm long.
” Try to swing this. ” (Woods)
I tried to use one hand and swing it down, it has a moderate weight but it feels comfortable.
” Ooh.. Your arm didn’t stagger when swinging it down. It seemed your arm strength is quite good. How much money you have boy? ” (woods)
” For the two of us, not more than 100 gold. And since Nina is a E rank assassin and I am a F rank magic warrior we don’t want to be petty on this. ”
The look on the dwarf changes.
” 100 gold coins? Maybe I can find you something. Miss, what do you want? ”
“… Me? A hat, cloak for an F rank magician.” (Lena)
The dwarf then goes back with a smile. He come to us with hands full of equipment.
“I think this is all you can afford. ”
I inspected the equipment on the table.
Long sword of black steel (grade 5): no effect.
Steel armor (grade 6): no effect.
black steel armor (class 5): No effect.
steel gauntlet (6 grade): No effect.
hard leather jacket (6 grade): None
steel headband (6 grade): No effect.
black steel Gauntlet (Grade 5): No effect.
hard leather boots (6 grade): No effect.
hard leather gauntlet (6 grade): No effect.
triangle hat (6 grade): No effect.
leather hat (6 grade): No effect.
Leather cloak (6 grade): No effect.
Momon cloak (6 grade): No effect.
“All of it doesn’t have skills and effects but it is sufficient for your rank. Hard leather equipment is light and easy to move. Black steel defence is decent as long as you’re keeping it in good condition. For magician-chan, the triangle hat and momon cloak appearance is adjusted with black color like the others. ” (Woods)
I first look at the large sword.
” Can you tell me about black steel? ” (Yu)
” Usually warriors use a claymore which is made from normal steel. For a magic warrior, you need a good magic sword. I have a better weapon made from mithril but the price is out of your league. The black steel is a decent one. Its hardness is on par with steel and could be used with magic. ” (woods)
After a while of negotiation, we made our purchase.
I bought: long sword of black steel, black steel armor and black steel gauntlet.
Nina: steel headband, hard leather jacket, hard leather gauntlet and hard leather boots.
Lena: triangle hat and momon cloak.
We spent 40 gold for Nina and one gold for Lena.
“Uncle, thank you. And, if I bring materials, could you turn it into equipment? ” (Yu)
” Of course, although the profit isn’t as big, but I take requests. ” (woods)
The uncle then is laughing with his hands on his waist like a rpg character. I decided to come back here again in the future.
” Uncle, see you. ” (Nina)
” Thank you for the equipment. ” (Lena)
When I saw the kid swinging the sword, his form was beautiful and the speed is better than most warriors. He chose a long sword which supported by his arm strength. The assassin miss also seemed to have decent skill. The things I gave them are not things I would sell to a rookie adventurer. At least it was sold to a D rank.
” I’ll look forward to seeing them again in the future.. ”
Woods said that while happily drinking his ale.
