t to it… But first things first, let me tell you by what criteria you were chosen. First is trust, we needed someone tight-lipped. Second, the skill Disease Resist. Everyone has it, right?” [Wogan]

“Disease Resist? Yeah, I have it. Im sure you know already, old man, but I used to be from the slums. Living there, youre bound to get 1 or 2 levels in it. Mines 5, though.” [Jeff]

“We also have it due to a town we had to go to for work that was plagued.” [Wereanna]

“Fortunately, the plague wasnt that bad, and we were able to get back alive. We even got a skill out of it.” [Syria]

“If I recall correctly, you all have it at level 3.” [Wogan]

“Mines 4 now though, nyaa. Im not saying this because Im proud about it or anything, but living at a house full of trash like that… Its only natural it would go up, nyaa.” [Miya]

From the flow of the conversation, the experienced male dwarf adventurer was able to guess the contents of the job. When he gave his conjecture out loud, the young adventurers panicked.

“Disease Resist… I take it were dealing with an epidemic here?” [Dwarf Adventurer]

“Has it already spread!?” [Adventurer]

“Calm down, Cher. Gordons right about it being an epidemic, but it hasnt spread yet.” [Wogan]

“Not yet… I suppose that means one or two have already fallen ill?” [Wereanna]

“No, we coincidentally found the source of the disease. The person who found it is Ryouma over there. So far no reports of people falling sick have come yet.” [Wogan]

Everyone turned to Ryouma at that, then the guild master, Wogan, explained how Ryouma was able to find the disease.

“…And so, with the scavenger slimes Disease Skill jumping from a 5 to a 7, it should be safe to assume that a terrible disease the likes of which not even a level 6 Disease Resist could defend against is brewing in the latrine pits of this towns common toilets.

The objective of this job is to stop the epidemic before it spreads. Also, considering how the people will react should word of this were to spread, youll have to work in secret.” [Wogan]

“Are all of us responsible for dealing with the plague— erm, cleaning the latrine pits?” [Cher]

“No, only Ryouma will be dealing with the latrine pits.” [Wogan]

“Wait a moment! Are you seriously planning to let a kid do all that by himself!? Dont you think thats too much? Kids tend to get sick quickly too, its too dangerous!” [Wereanna]

“Besides, its ridiculous to ask a single person to clean all of the latrine pits alone.” [Jeff]

“I share your sentiments, but this is for the best. Ryouma has already managed to clean a latrine pit yesterday in just one day.

And the highest level of Disease Resist among you is 5, which belongs to Jeff. Unfortunately, the disease were dealing with here isnt something that can be dealt with even with a level 6 Disease Resist. The odds of spreading it is simply too high.

On that point, Ryouma possesses level 7 health, making him the person least likely to get sick. Moreover, he also has Vitality UP Lv3, Super Regeneration Lv3, and Stamina UP Lv6. Even if he falls sick, Ryouma still has the highest chance of surviving among everyone here.” [Wogan]

Everyone looked at Ryouma in shock.

Syria asked Wogan a question.

“…I understand hes suitable, but if thats the case, then what are we supposed to do?” [Syria]

“You are to keep watch while hes working and ensure that no one else enters. We cant lock the entrance while the latrine pits are being worked on, so well have to rely on you.

Also, those among you with the neutral magic, Identify, will have to use that to ensure that Ryouma isnt infected when he goes out.” [Wogan]

“Do we really need 9 people to keep watch?” [Jeff]

“…Ryouma can work for a few days without sleeping. HisHealth skill is a mixture of the Disease Resist, Sleep Resist, and Poison Resist skills. This was confirmed with his status board.” [Wogan]

“I see, so theres 9 of us, so we can keep watch in shifts. Ryouma, are you really going to be ok?” [Jeff]

“No problem. Working a few days without sleep is pretty much the norm for me. Im also working on my own volition, so this much wont be a problem.” [Ryouma]

“I see.” [Jeff]

“Keep an eye out on him too, to see if hes really not pushing himself… You have 10 minutes. In some ways, this is more dangerous than a monster subjugation job. You wont be penalized even if you refuse, so make sure you think hard on this.” [Wogan]

After Wogan said that, he left the room. Ryouma left too since it was already decided that he would be participating.

After the adventurers thought on it for a while, Jeff spoke.

“Sigh… What to do?” [Jeff]

The dwarf adventurer named Gordon answered.

“Ill do it. I was born and raised in this town. I know a lot of people here. I cant just run away now.” [Gordon]

Following him, the dragonewt adventurer also express his intent to join, and then another, and another…

“This one shall also accept. It is wisest to nip an epidemic in the bud before it can bloom.” [Dragonewt Adventurer]

“I cant believe something like that is brewing in this town… I know its dangerous, but I cant just leave a kid like that to fix it all by himself. I have to do it.” [Wereanna]

“You said it. In the first place, all were doing is keeping watch. The one doing the actually dangerous part is that kid. Given conditions like that, I cant possibly turn tail and run now, can I?” [Jeff]

Apparently, it didnt even take 10 minutes for the adventurers to decide, and after Wogan and Ryouma returned, everyone agreed to participate.

After that Wogan passed on the knowledge that Ryouma claims he received from his grandmother, and then quickly decided on the groups of the lookouts.
