CH40: Regular Meeting
After that, the reports of each person began.
The executives attending this meeting are the heads of their respective departments.
The regular meeting is held once a year at the end of March to report the results of the past year and so on.
The main contents are the movements of the members of the clan, the money coming in and out of each department, the sales status of the sales department, and the progress of the weapons, armor, and magic tools that are being developed by the clan.
Just by listening to this meeting, I was able to get some idea of the current state of the Clan.
It’s great to be a part of this conference.
And Selma, our trio, will begin her report.
The search team will now report. The highest level of the Grand Labyrinth is still at the ninety-second level. As is well known, no one was able to join the first team this term, so the first team’s search was kept to a minimum and we focused on training the younger members.”
I knew from my days as a member of the Brave Party that the First Squad hadn’t explored the depths in a year.
It seems that the loss of Mr. Albert, who was called the absolute ace and the spiritual pillar of the party, was a great loss.
“As a result, two of the parties belonging to the second squad have reached the eighty-seventh layer, and we can now see them reaching the deeper layers.”
The atmosphere was heavy at the beginning, but it seemed to soften after hearing the breakthrough of the second unit.
“In addition, as reported earlier by the Search Management Department, the amount of materials collected in the middle and lower levels is also on the increase. <The abilities of the explorers belonging to the Silver Rabbit of the Night Sky are improving as a whole.”
I knew this from the information I had gathered during my time in the Brave Party.
The level of the explorers of the Silver Rabbit in the Night Sky has definitely improved over the past year.
It might only be a matter of time before the fourth S-ranked party is born from the Night Sky Silver Rabbit.
“Also, as a new trial, we recently conducted an instructional search. Several A-rank or above explorers including myself accompanied them, and the newcomers in training dived into the Great Labyrinth, and all of them reached the 50th layer.”
The deportation happened right after I killed the Black Dragon so the new recruits haven’t been able to go to the 50th level.
Well, it is what it is. We all survived that thing, it’d be greedy to ask for more.
I hope the investor sponsors are happy with the results…
“Of course, we won’t be sending newcomers out into the middle levels anytime soon, but we believe that the experience of long hours of searching the labyrinth day after day will pay off in the near future.”
I’m sure of it.
I’ve been in the Grand Labyrinth from morning till night for three days.
Mentally, I think I’ve grown a lot.
The rookie’s moves weren’t too bad during the search for guidance.
It was very clear that this clan was committed to education.
“Finally, as for our plans for the next term, with the arrival of Orn, we now have the members of the First Squadron. So we will resume our attack on the deeper levels. We will ask the other explorers to continue the attack to the extent that it is reasonable, and we will establish a system that can provide a stable supply of high quality magic stones and materials.”
After Selma finished speaking, the other executives asked her some questions, which she answered without difficulty.
And after Selma’s report,
“It’s been a year since I took over as clan leader. It is thanks to all of you here and elsewhere that we have been able to rebuild the clan to this point. I thank you for that. I look forward to your continued support. Well then, I’ll call it a day.
The regular meeting came to an end with the closing remarks by the President.
The executives are leaving the room in droves.
I was going to say hello to each of them, but they seemed to be very busy, so I decided not to.
I’ll have to go say hello one of these days.
Well, let’s get going.
“… Oh! Selma, wait!
As he was about to leave the room after being approached by Mr. Selma, he heard a woman’s voice calling him away.
… I’ve been called a lot of things, Selma.
I looked in the direction I heard voices and saw a woman with short-cut brown hair. She was in her early 20s.
Like Selma, he’s one of the younger members of the executive.
Well, I know you’re gonna say I shouldn’t, but…
I’m pretty sure he’s from search and rescue.
In the previous meeting, they were evaluating each party of explorers and reporting the amount of magic stones and materials they had collected.
Probably the department that supports the explorers.
Selma, are you okay for a second? I need to talk to the new guy.
Hmm? You wanted to see me, not Selma?
Yeah, no problem.
I’ve got a lot of work to do so I’ll get straight to the point. Are you good at teaching your knowledge and skills to others?”
“If I know something, I can tell you. Why?”
What’s it all about?
You want me to tell you something?
Estella, Orn is in trouble.
Her name is Estella, apparently.
You should at least learn the names of the officers right away.
In the earlier report, they all only gave their department signatures, so I didn’t get their names.
“Oh, sorry, sorry. I was wondering if you could be the new party host.
The training officer? I thought training of new employees was under the jurisdiction of the Search and Resource Department.
And I’ve got some deep-seated searching to do.
I don’t know if I can find the time.
“I’m going to ask a favor of you. If it’s all right with you, will you take it?”
I’m surprised Selma gave me permission, or rather, asked me to do it.
What about the deep search?
“Well, if you’re going to train newcomers, I’d like to have a certain amount of time, but do you have that kind of time?”
“Hmm? I see. The hero party’s been going into the labyrinth almost every day. but we don’t allow them to dive the Grand Labyrinth for four days in a row. My party doesn’t have much of a schedule after tomorrow, but we’re not planning to dive every day. So I think we have a lot more time to spare compared to when I was in the Brave Party.”
I didn’t know that.
It’s true that I thought that <Yoten no Ginrabbit> didn’t spend many days exploring the labyrinth.
Mr. Selma has administrative duties as an executive.
I’ll have to help you with that too… and I’m not going to dive into the Grand Labyrinth day after day like the heroic party…
If that’s the case, I’ll take care of it.
“Really? Thanks. They’re so talented. I wanted to send them to the search party as soon as possible! Besides, it’s what they’ve always wanted, so I’m glad you agreed!”
“Well, we’ll talk about the details later! Bye-bye!”
When I came to, Estella was gone.
You’re like a storm…
I’m wondering if the members of the Search Management Department are being pushed around by that guy…” Selma-san followed up.
Well, otherwise, he wouldn’t have made it to the top at such a young age.
