TWEM Vol. 6 Chapter 16 Part 1

Chapter 16 – Glory and Rewards

Oskar led us to the door of the treasure room.

The heavy door was plainly decorated, with minimal workmanship.

When one of the mages chanted a spell, the door to the treasure room opened.


The inside of the treasure room was so spacious that it was easy to marvel at it, and there were many treasures and magic tools enshrined there.

Just by looking at it, one could tell that all of them were expensive.

“That’s an awful lot of stuff.”

“A treasure room should have at least this much, right? But, as expected of the Galzio Empire.”

“This is the first time I’ve seen a treasure trove from another country…”

“Hahaha, I’m gonna have a hard time choosing…I think?”

“I’m baffled, but this is amazing.”

“Wow, this is wonderful…”

Finne, Iris, Asha, Suzuno, Kuzel and Ephyr all responded in different ways.

It was also my first time seeing a treasure trove.

That’s when I suddenly remembered and asked Oskar, who was following me.

“Oskar, how many can I take?”

“I haven’t decided how many you can take with you. But I’m sorry, I can’t give you all of them.”

“Okay, let me take a look and choose a few.”

“Please do that. However, there are some things that I can’t give you, so once you’ve decided what you want, let me confirm it once… That’s right. I would appreciate it if both Suzuno and Kuzel would do the same and pick a few items. We wouldn’t want to lose all the country’s treasures at once.”

Both Suzuno and Kuzel nodded at Oskar’s words, who smiled pleasantly.

“If you’ll excuse me, I have something to do, but I’ll leave the manager here, so please ask him. Let’s talk later.”

After saying that, Oskar quickly left.

Oskar was the emperor. He had a lot of work to do that only he could do.

After Oskar left, we turned our attention to the treasure room.

“Now, if I had to choose… ah, right.”

I forgot something important, so I asked the treasure room’s manager.

“Is there anything I’m not allowed to touch? I wanted to ask just in case.”

“Not really. Items that are dangerous to even touch are stored separately, or rather sealed away”

Since he used the word “sealed,” it must be really dangerous.

“I see. That’s all I need to know. If something were to happen, it would be dangerous… Well then, let’s go look for it right away. Iris, don’t touch it needlessly and break it, okay?”

“I-I know! Already! What does Haruto think of me!”

Iris, who was about to touch a treasure, was startled and objected.

“…A clumsy person?”


“I’m just kidding. Hahahaha… Well, let’s get started!”

That’s how we started our treasure hunt.

I spent a few minutes looking through ornaments like crowns, necklaces, precious metals, weapons like swords and shields, and tools I didn’t know what they could be used for.

“How about this?”

Suzuno asked, pointing at a certain magical tool.

What was displayed at the end of it was a necklace.

“Did you check it with Appraisal?”

“I did. It was pretty good, so I didn’t know what to do.”

Then I’ll check it too.



Sublimation Necklace




Triples the power of the wearer’s magical attacks.


As Suzuno said, it’s not a bad effect. On the contrary, I would say it’s powerful.

“That’s right. It’s a pretty good magical tool. Well, rather than a magical tool, would it be better to call it a treasure?”

“Yes, it is. I’ll go ahead and ask for this.”

With that said, Suzuno went to ask the manager if it was okay to choose that item.

After seeing her off, I continued rummaging through the magical tools.

Then I found an expensive-looking sword in the back of the treasure room.

“A bargain in a place like this…?”

The fact that it was here meant that it must be a high-performance magic sword.

So, I immediately appraised it.



Magic Sword Bloodcurse




Those who use this sword will have their stats other than attack power and magic power halved.

It sucks the user’s blood and converts it into attack power.


No, it’s a cursed magic sword… who made this? Why was it in the treasure room?

Weren’t these kinds of magic tools and magic swords should be kept somewhere else?

As I stared at the sword and thought about that, Kuzel stood beside me.

“Oh, Haruto. Have you also set your eyes on this sword? I thought I wanted one too.”

I stopped Kuzel, who was about to pick up the Magic Sword Bloodcurse.

“Just don’t do that.”

“Why? I feel like it’s a very high-performance magic sword.”

“When I appraised it, it turned out to be a cursed magic sword. All stats except attack power are halved. It also has a crappy ability to absorb your blood as a bonus. It’s what you call garbage.”

“…I see. It’s attractive, but if it means having your blood sucked out, I’d rather not do it.”

Kuzel gave up.

Wait, what do you mean by “attractive”…does it mean anything is fine as long as it increases your attack power?

Hearing Kuzel’s words, I decided to make her a special sword next time.

I didn’t want her to pick up a strange weapon in her quest for offensive power.

After that, we took our time and searched for what we wanted.

Suzuno seemed to have decided on the “Sublimation Necklace” since the manager had given her permission to keep it.

Then she also chose another magical tool, a “Benevolence Bracelet” which has an automatic recovery effect.

In the end, Kuzel chose “Attack Gauntlet”, a weapon that increases attack power, and “Storage Bag”, a bag that can hold a large amount of items.

Kuzel’s choice was very typical of her.

As for me, I chose two jewels called “Sky Jewel” that had no effect, and something called “Magic Crystal.”

This was the description of the magic crystal.



Magic Crystal




Magical power has been crystallized over a long period of time, and contains an abundance of highly purified magical power.

Processing requires considerable technical ability.


It was not possible to do anything with this item by itself, but I hope to process it to create an item in the future.

I chose the Sky Jewel for the same reason. Apparently it could store magical power, so I thought it might be useful for creating items.

However, when it came to the jewels, the manager looked at me as if wanting to say, “Are you sure you want to do that?”.

Apparently, even the people of the empire couldn’t think of an effective use for these jewels, and left them without doing anything.

Anyway, after we had made our selections, we decided to return to Oskar.
