Chapter 0160 << Intermission >>
A week after returning to Rune with a large amount of Kona coffee and a French press as a souvenir.
The members of Room 10, including Ryo, and the Guildmaster Hugh were in front of the Adventurer’s Guild.
In front of them was the Hero party prepared to set off.
“Thank you for taking care of us.”
Hugh shook hands with Hero Roman.
“No, that’s our line. We had a lot of good experiences.”
Roman replied, bowing his head.
“When you come to Western Countries, please visit us …”
“Well, the Western Countries is a little too big to find you.”
Hugh smiled at Roman’s words.
“Everyone may go their separate ways after we defeat the Demon Lord but I will remain with the Western Church, so please look for ‘Graham’ at the Church.”
In response to Hugh and Roman’s bitter smiles, Priest Graham, the negotiator and the oldest party member, proposed.
“Okay. It’s ‘Archbishop’, right? That’s quite an esteemed position.”
Hugh nodded, remembering what Graham had told the Vampire Kalinikos.
“Until we defeat the Demon Lord, I’m just a priest.”
Graham replied with a faint smile.
It was a rank not found in the temple organization of the Central Nations.
On Earth, in a Christian Catholic church, he would be a considerably high-ranking clergyman.
The Pope was at the top, the Cardinal beneath him, and the Archbishop below them. Further down would be the bishops and the priests.
Historically, the archbishop’s standing was high and strong.
Three of the seven electors who elected the Holy Roman Emperor were archbishops. They were Archbishop of Mainz, Archbishop of Trier, and Archbishop of Cologne.
Although not exactly accurate, they had, in a broad sense, the authority to choose an emperor.
By the way, the remaining four were King of Bohemia, Count of Palatine, Duke of Saxony, and Margrave of Brandenburg.
Of course, at that point, Ryo didn’t know exactly what the position of the archbishop entailed in the Western Countries.
However, from Hugh’s tone, it seemed certain that it was quite a position.
After sending off the Hero party, the four people from Room 10 were called to the Guildmaster Office and sat at the reception table.
Of course, Kona coffee was brewed in front of them.
“For this recent case, the royal family and the temple have issued a gag order. It is forbidden to reveal anything about this incident. If you are found to have revealed anything, you will be sent to prison, so be careful.”
Hugh warned and the four from Room 10 nodded.
『Vampire』 and 『Majin』 were involved. It was easy to guess that this would happen.
“You could say that in exchange, the reward has been significantly increased. Well, think of it as hush money and take it. You should already have it in your accounts.”
They were happy with the increase in reward.
Even Ryo, who was not particularly troubled with money, was happy.
Guildmaster Office after the four people from Room 10 had left.
“Majin … Vampire … We somehow managed to solve it … and the dungeon has finally normalized from the Great Tidal Bore, so I can take a break for a while.”
Hugh said to himself and started his usual paperwork.
