 Night began to set in when they reached the streets.

 Magical light began to illuminate the main street, releasing their white radiance in the surroundings.  The composition of those walking in the mainstreet began to change. The number of young ladies and children began to dip while the number men who just completed their jobs began to increase. Sounds of merrymaking drifted out from the shops lining both sides of the street.

 Among the street was a luxurious coach pulled by four horses that moved past Momon and the others. There was still a coach moving towards the main gate at this hour. Many people were surprised by it. However, they soon forgot about the scene and continued towards their respective destinations.

 Humans and monsters alike shared a deep connection with the forest. On one hand the forest represented a place blessed with richness and on the other, a wild and dangerous place.

In the dungeons, in the caves, at night and in the forests.          

 This was one of the reasons why monsters saw better in the dark. Humans fumbled blindly in the dark while monsters … not as much.

 Many people would think that travelling below 30 kilometres in one day is not a big deal. However would they understand if there was no road, having to monitor one’s surroundings, and on top of that, having to lug around a large weight, and having to prepare for a variety of situations.

 In addition one day’s movement was until 3 pm, depending on the situation, ending earlier was basic.

 One of the reasons was because time was needed to make camp.

 Amongst them, finding a location took the most time. Avoiding routes that animals would take, having a ground that would be fine during rain, and having protection against night attacks from nocturnal monsters. Due to this, finding a wide area to set up camp was an extremely troublesome job.

 Especially while in a plains where the difficulty level rose significantly.

 And so before the sun set, time was used to prepare the camp.

 There was a difference in the atmosphere of the adventurers’ guild when Momon visited the guild yesterday. Inside were several well armed adventurers, a warrior in full plate mail armor, an archer with light armor, a priest in holy robes and on his hands was a staff with a holy sigil. The last person was a magic caster with his magician robes and staff.

 They were choosing their next potential job with the receptionist, and were discussing among themselves about the details of the job listed on the parchment. Their aura of vitality befitted the members of the adventurers guild.
