Chapter 11 Magician’s job in Guild
“Come, we’ve arrived”
I came to the magician’s guild with Media.
it’s located in front of the adventurer’s guild in the center of the town, a building like that of an auditorium.
I saw a reception lady at the reception desk and few people with a magician’s clothing.
I was thinking why the place was really quiet but now that I think about it, it must be a normal thing in this backwater place.
“Not really, it’s simply because a full-time magicians are less in number”
“…unn? why is it like that?”
“Strong magics has a bullet limit. of course, there are some with infinity bullets but comparing to training your body and mastering the everlasting skill, are far efficient in planning your life”
Aa, I see.
I some people won’t be able to cope with a limited bullet limit after mastering it with hard work and dedication.
“Regarding that, I’m really envious of you and too amazing of an ability you have. I thought my heart would’ve stopped from hearing that you can master a magic in a single day”
“Oh, well unn. Thanks for the compliment”
But with my luck, I get not so good magics. Even so, it must be extraordinary ability to magicians.
“Even though you are fine but normally, magicians are judged as a person who worked hard to master a consumable product.— that’s why basically magicians are made up of eccentric freaks or a person with a weird taste, a very unusual person so be careful alright?”
Wait, doesn’t that mean we are also looked as an eccentric freak or a person with weird taste.
So Media herself is in the same category as these people.
“For me, well, I’m called “Sage of protection” now but, before this I was called a barrier maniac…. I just loved that transparent and a powerful wall that doesn’t let anything through. I loved it so I just coated the castle of the capital city…”
Media looked at the empty air feeling down.
Aa, unn. this one is definitely a weirdo. An easy to understand example.
While we were chit chatting things like that Guild master came.
He seemed to have headed out to the guild before us and
“ya, ya, sorry for the wait. I’ve finished registering you”
it seems like he registered me.
saying so he gave me the guild card.
a very thin card.
“If you stick that to your grimoire, it will record the monster you killed. it is a must item for an evidence when you do the job”
“Oo, thank you very much Guild master”
“Hahaha, you don’t have to use honorific. We are new fellow magicians. And welcome to the Magician’s guild Kouta-kun. I welcome you to the guild as a representative “
While the guild master laughed he handed me several papers containing the available quests.
“A beginner level quests. chose what you like”
Seeing the content, most of them were a subjugation of a monster in the hill slightly far away.
“As expected there aren’t quests on subjugation of minatours in the beginner level”
I felt sort of relieved
“Aa, I’ve heard of the story. that you are a talent which has the power to minch minitours easily. I recruited you because we know you are an abnormally talented magician. — but against Minatourous, whose a real pain in an ass, subjugation of them are relied upon adventurers and so quest like that won’t come to magician’s guild”
“eh? is that so?”
“AA. Most of the quest in magician’s guild are subjugation of a monster who are weak against magics or a monster transformed by a magic. So if you can use a bit of magic, the quest can be done easily. “
I see. oh well, it’s true that it would be better for a magician to defeat the monsters that are weak against magic.
“see, I told you that magic can earn you good”
Media said so with a smug look.
I guess, that’s true.
This place might be the best place for me to earn whilst I can use magic.
thinking so I was looking at the quest document,
“Let’s do this one Kouta-san. This pays the highest!”
Soulas came interrupting my thought by talking to me.
Somehow she seemed to be full of confidence.
“what’s wrong, with your sudden excitement”
Her tension is so high that it feels like her silence before was a lie.
“This is our very first job as a team! A perfect chance for us to show our amazing power, we can’t miss this!”
Ee, alee. was she always like this kind of grimoire.
I though she was a bit more adult like.
And there is nothing to show with the beginner quest.
…however, the reward is not that bad.
The quest she job was a subjugation of slime which propagated into great number and collecting of water-soluble.
Fumu, I know that the slimes are weak against magic since I defeated one before.
“U~n, I’m still thinking but…”
“Isn’t this fine. since it’s a beginner rank with a good reward”
Soulas somehow looks really motivated.
…oh well, I shouldn’t pour a cold water at her excitement.
In the end, we decided on the slime subjugation she chose.
