A/N: About “epitaphs”: There were some comments asking whether those are letters carved into big stone monuments, but in this novel, the term is used to describe text engraved into solid objects such as stone and metal. Since it doesn’t really fit with “Ancient Inscriptions on Monuments”, I’m using “epitaph” which is usually used for the translated text of stone monuments.
Hey! Did you see the JDA’s YoyoDun News Blog!?
The dungeon news blog? In the past I did, but nowadays I don’t check it much. It’s become slightly repetitive, lacking any catchy news, right?
No, what’s that video? Some kind of movie trailer? Shouldn’t it have “Advertisement” written in small letters somewhere?
Eh? Did they post something interesting?
Video, you say, what kind?
Just go and watch it. It’s a must-see.
I saw, I totally saw. It’s fuckin’ awesome! >182
Where was that? The 10th floor?
Oh, is it so amazing? Gotcha, I’ll go have a look as well!
Well, in the first scene when they drew close to the mansion, you can see something like a gravesite in the vicinity, so it should be the 10th floor >187
Starting middle of last month, the top explorers from all over the world have been sighted in Yoyogi, not to mention 2nd Lt. Kimitsu, so it might be a new floor beyond the known 21 floors.
It’s got the subtitle “Wandering Mansion”, and the weird numbers on the gatepost are pretty neat. Or rather, to me it totally looks like dungeon-themed fiction.
About that >190
Just look at those gargoyle-like things looking our way from the roof when they’re about to enter the mansion.
No, don’t look at me!
I’d feel really uneasy to go ahead with those things, y’know?
Well, many of the explorers heading to the lower floors seem to have a screw loose anyway.
Look who’s talkin.
That huge crow thing sure adds to the mood.
The part when it’s grooming its feathers on the gatepost, just when the door opens and they look back towards the gate in a fluster. I laughed so hard that they went out of the way to edit it for the upload.
Oh, so that’s why the pixels are so blurry around that part rofl
I watched it! Amazin’ shit! Though it’s slightly regrettable that there’s no sound.
I’m pretty sure it’d be full of screaming and stuff. Especially at the end.
The monsters that appeared inside the room for a moment were Skeletal Executioners?
Those haven’t been spotted on the 10th floor. >189
This mansion itself hasn’t been spotted there to begin with.
Hey, hey, my acquaintance, you see, said that he’d heard the tolling of bells on the 10th floor late at night on the 27th of November.
All of us teased him for having imagined it, but maybe it’s related to this?
At the end, when the camera suddenly points up to empty space in the room, it could be interpreted like that, if you imagine that a bell rang just then and there.
Ah, when the room was about to become all warped and wound up.
But before that, what had these guys been doing on the 10th floor in the dead of night?
It’s common sense that wandering that place at night is impossible, no?
He missed returning to the 8th floor, and apparently set up camp on the stairs between the 9th and 10th floor.
Kinda sounds like a lamer team.
Well, don’t be so hard on them. So, they did go have a look at what those bells were about, right?
I asked the same, and then got scolded that there was no way they could have walked around the 10th floor at night.
…Hmm, makes sense, I guess.
Can’t be helped.
The gargoyles came attacking at the end, but were blown away. What was the deal with that?
Didn’t the party member of the filmer shoot them with a gun or something?
Then it was a JSDF unit after all, huh?
Towards the end it turned into a real disaster movie.
The real hiyou of Ushi and Tora are gonna haunt me in my dreams. 1
Well, in it’s own way. If I had to choose either, it’s more of a horror movie.
I’m kinda curious what happened at the part with the pedestal in the room.
Oh, you mean the “Oh wanderers, touch onto the wisdom of the true grimoire”?
I felt like the text was much longer though…
That’s captioning, so it’s been shortened, no?
Since it looks like it’s an Earthen language, unlike with the epitaphs, someone should be able to translate it.
Wanderers? That’s about us?
225:Wandering Explorer ID:P12xx-xxxx-xxxx-0192
I changed into a Wandering Explorer.
An information page for the wandering mansion has gone live!
GJ > 225
Eh? For real?
Wait, the hell’s this!? The condition to make it appear is to defeat 373 monsters of the same kind in a day?
Something like that is possible??
If it’s the slimes on the 1st floor…
Slimes are surprisingly troublesome. Well, there’s probably enough of ’em around though > 229
If you’re unlucky, it’ll take around 5 mins to kill one. 12 in an hour, 240 in 20 hrs…R.I.P.
It looks like the mansion in the video appeared after killing 373 zombies.
The fuck? Dude, that’s the very definition of horror!
As if it was a game in a GamCen…Team I sure is crazy.
So it’s been totally set in stone that this was done by Iori-chan’s team.
I mean, does anyone else ring a bell with you? Or do you think the Shibuya Team pulled this off?
You think a team like that would be prowling around on the 10th floor or something…?
It can only exist during the day it appeared (?). Is this ToSpo, or what? lol 2 It’s not limited to the 10th floor > 236
That’s something we don’t clearly know, yeah.
Someone able to investigate as follow up…probably doesn’t exist…
Even if I wanted to do it, it’s impossible.
10th floor cuz zombies, right? > 237
Let’s look forward to Iori-chan’s next news!
- A monster appearing in the manga Ushi and Tora. Here a picture: https://dic.pixiv.net/a/%E5%A9%A2%E5%A6%96
- ToSpo refers to Tokyo Sports I think, but I don’t get the reference. Maybe the articles in that thing last only a day or something. Or maybe it’s a comment going in the direction of this being very challenging as in sport activity.
