    “Sister! I’ve completed the building plans for the new city, please take a look!”

    It was the morning of the “16th day of the Autumn Moon”, the second week after the calendar entered autumn was about to end.

    Yuri was reading reports in her office, Meteora, the captain of <Kikyou>, came barging in. She opened the door with a bang and walked into the room.

    “Meteora! You should at least knock!”

    “Oh, excuse me, Lachesis-san!”

    Lachesis, the deputy captain of the <Shirayuri>, who is today’s “love duty” and Yuri’s escort, immediately scolded Meteora.

    Even though they are in different units, the captain, Meteora, is a higher rank than the deputy captain, Lachesis. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing, but there are a lot of serious kids in <Shirayuri>, and they’re hard on themselves and hard on others. They can scold when they should, even if it is the captain.

    ―――The only exception to this is Yuri, who is extremely lenient.

    “Meteora, you spent a lot of time designing this, didn’t you?”

    “Yes! But I’m very proud of the work I’ve done!”

    Meteora nodded and held out the document.

    If it were possible, I would have liked to read through the reports from the former secret agents of the kingdom this morning first, but I couldn’t keep Meteora waiting, her eyes full of anticipation. Putting aside the documents she was reading, Yuri quickly looked over the draft plan.

    “I see that the entire new city will be in the shape of a regular hexagon.”

    That was the first thing that came to mind when she saw the map of the city attached to the document.

    In『Atros Online』, most of the cities were circular or rectangular, and I don’t think that will change much in this world.

    So the hexagonal shape of the city is eye-catching.

    “I think it would be more efficient to put the entire city in a circle, considering that the main facilities are located in the center. But I thought that would be uninteresting, so I tried to make the shape a little more interesting. Of course, it has other meanings too!”

    “Oh, I’m looking forward to it.”

    After reading through the draft of the city plan, I can summarize the main points as follows.

    First of all, it seems that the new city will be divided into two major sections, the “Tourist Resort Section” and the “Labyrinth Dungeon Area”.

    As mentioned above, the new city is shaped like a hexagon with vertices at the top and bottom, and the diamond-shaped section in the upper third of the hexagon will be the “Tourist Resort Section”.

    The majority of the tourist area is covered with water. Of course, this utilizes the lake that was created at the site of Yuri’s previous annihilation of the kingdom’s army with the [Meteor Strike].

    So the “Tourist Resort Section” will be a structure like a ‘floating city’.

    Wooden streets will be built on the lake so that people can walk around, and many cottages will be built on the water. On top of that, they are going to invite wealthy people from home and abroad to stay at their lodgings where they can swim at any time.

    Of course, the entire city will be covered with [Temperature Control Ward] to adjust the temperature to a moderately warm level throughout the year. Summer or winter, day or night―――you can enjoy swimming at any time of the year.

    The lower two-thirds of the new city will be the “Labyrinth Dungeon Area”.

    As the name suggests, this is a city that sells [Labyrinth Dungeon].

    There are a total of six [Labyrinth Dungeon] planned to be built in the new city.

    Beginner I (recommended level: 0~20)

    Beginner II (recommended level: 21~35)

    Intermediate I (recommended level: 36~50)

    Intermediate II (recommended level: 51~65)

    Advanced I (recommended level: 66~80)

    Advanced II (recommended level: 81~)

    Each difficulty range seems to be set up in this way.

    It seems that <Kikyou> idea is that when all the labyrinths have been conquered, they should be able to grow to level 100 or higher.

    “I’ve heard that you can learn the very powerful healing magic that cures all diseases, which you can acquire with the Priest’s vocation, at around level 100. So the goal of ‘level 100’ is based on that.”

    “It’s true that the cathedral would like to place a lot of importance on cultivating people who can use such useful and powerful healing magic.”

    “Well, I heard that there is no one in the neighboring countries who can use such magic at the moment.”

    “I guess so……”

    The most high level that Yuri has confirmed in this world is Estoa.

    She is supposed to be level 64, which means that she is capable of taking on Intermediate II. I wonder if she is surprisingly a fighter.

    Incidentally, the next highest score was a level 62 man named Gordon, but I killed him during the invasion of Nildea, so I will never see him again.

    At any rate, I hadn’t yet seen people in this world who could reach the heights of ‘level 100’ by mistake.

    “Oh, so the [Labyrinth Dungeon] itself will be placed on the outer edge of the city?”

    “Yes. The city’s government offices, food stores, and other facilities essential to the lives of the citizens will be located in the center of the city, so the [Labyrinth Dungeon] will be located farther away.”

    According to the blueprints, the [Labyrinth Dungeon] will be located at each corner of the new city, which is shaped like a regular hexagon.

    Since it is a hexagon, there are six corners. So there will be six [Labyrinth Dungeon].

    If you were to compare it to a clock face, At 2 o’clock, there’s [Beginner I].

    At 4 o’clock, there’s [Beginner II], and at 6 o’clock, there’s [Intermediate I], and so on, in a clockwise direction, the difficulty of the [Labyrinth Dungeon] goes up by one level.

    So the most difficult labyrinth, [Advanced II], is located at 12 o’clock.

    Only this labyrinth will be located in the tourist resort area, not in the labyrinth dungeon area.

    “By the time you take on the advanced [Labyrinth Dungeon], you’ll have earned enough money to live in the tourist resort section, so I don’t think there will be any problems.”

    “I see. I’m sure there will be people who dream of one day living in a tourist resort section and challenging the [Labyrinth Dungeon], and that kind of dream is interesting.”

    “It’s all about the romance of getting rich, isn’t it?”

    “You’re right. I think Meteora is right.”

    I’m planning to make it a [Labyrinth Dungeon] where no one will ever die, but if you are attacked by a demon you will be injured and experience pain.

    Since we would be taking on a certain amount of risk, it would certainly be better to be in a place where we could at least dream of making a lot of money, as Meteora said.

    “Hey, Meteora. I have one question for you.”

    “What is it, sister? I’ll answer anything!”

    “What exactly is this [Large Projection Device]?”

    According to the blueprints, the Large Projector is a structure that will be installed in the “Tourist Resort Section”, one in each of the three plazas.

    “Thank you for your attention! This is a device that receives sister ‘broadcasts’ and projects them on a large screen so that everyone in the square can watch them!”

    “I don’t even know that such an item exists.”

    “Krone-san developed it in one night!”

    “What is she doing at……?”

    Krone is the captain of the production unit <Rindou> and specializes in the production of magical tools.

    It’s not impossible to make a device that can receive and use Yuri’s ‘telepathy’, because magic tools can incorporate mechanisms related to sorcery and magic.

    “I’m only broadcast for an hour or two a day at most, you know. Even if I made such a thing, it would be useless most of the time……”

    “I have a suggestion for you, sister.”

    “What is it?”

    “I’ve heard rumors that sister is looking for a way to broadcast without your involvement.”

    “Ah…….”

    Yuri has been asked by Arcana before, “Please increase the frequency of your broadcasts!”. And the second one was, “I’d be very happy if I could watch it 24 hours a day!”.

    At that time, I immediately refused, saying that I would die of overwork. But Yuri was not one to ignore a request from a cute girl.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about how to make this happen, and I’ve often talked to the girls at <Nadeshiko> about it.

    “I’ve been thinking about it. How about having sister servant, accompany all those who dive into the labyrinth, and have them ‘broadcast’ their exploration of the [Labyrinth Dungeon]?”

    “Oh―――that’s a very interesting idea.”

    It’s true that even if Yuri doesn’t do the broadcasting herself, it could still be something that viewers could enjoy.

    There is no day or night in the [Labyrinth Dungeon]. So if the population of the city increases and the number of people who challenge the labyrinth increases, we might even be able to realize the broadcast that Arcana wanted, which can be seen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    “By the way, the [Large Projection Device] will show the highest level people who are challenging the labyrinth at that time, and how they are exploring.”

    “Those who are shown most often will likely have fans, and patrons”

    “Maybe so. I’m sure they’ll enjoy it as much as they want.”

    “Yeah. I think the overall urban design is well done. However, the population won’t increase immediately and the city will need to be managed from a long-term perspective, so keep that in mind.”

    “I’m aware of that.”

    Yuritania was able to start running as a city with a large population from the beginning because it had emigrated the citizens of Nildea. What Meteora is proposing this time is the construction of a completely new city, so it will take quite some time before a sufficient population can be gathered.

    We still have 3,000 former Transportation Corps soldiers imprisoned in the basement of Yuritania, so if we can use them, we should be able to prepare a minimum population base to run the city. But it’s still not enough.

    ―――However, it seems that the kingdom is collapsing, so if we accept refugees from those areas, we might be able to get a population sooner than expected.

    “So, when do you think the city will be completed?”

    “Yes! The construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of this month!”

    “……Isn’t that a bit absurd?”

    Today is the 16th day of the autumn moon. In this world, there are only 40 days each month, so until the end of this month, there are only 24 days left.

    In the first place, it took 60 days to build the city of Yuritania. This time the city will be on the same scale like that, or even larger if you include the [Labyrinth Dungeon], so completing it in just 24 days would be too much overwork.

    “Actually, I would like to try to see how long it will take for all the members of the <Kikyou> to complete a city.”

    “Wasn’t it all hands on deck when you built…… Yuritania?”

    “Yes, but I didn’t summon a beast at that time.”

    “Oh, I see what you mean……”

    All of the members of Yuri Empire, including Yuri herself, have the skill of [Summon Beast] and can summon [Beast] to assist them in combat, production, and other activities as needed.

    In the case of <Kikyou> children, the [Summon Beast] skill allows them to summon up to five 150-level beasts with the same occupation as themselves.

    There are only 24 <Kikyou> children in total, but with the help of all of them, we can start the construction work with 144 people.

    Even though the ability of each beast is inferior to that of the main unit, a six-fold increase in the number of workers would surely shorten the construction period by a huge margin.

    “Meteora, just promise me two things.”

    “Yes, what is it, sister?”

    “First of all. The first is that it’s fine to rush the construction, but make sure that the durability of the building and the [Labyrinth Dungeon] is not compromised as a result.”

    “Of course! We will always make sure that everything is perfect!”

    If the [Labyrinth Dungeon] collapses, the people inside will be safe. The wards would protect them, so there would be no deaths, but there would be a flood of complaints.

    Also, if the [Labyrinth Dungeon] built underneath the city were to collapse, it would cause the ground to subside, possibly damaging the buildings above ground.

    We need to make sure that they are durable.

    “The second thing. It’s fine to challenge yourself to reach your goal, but don’t overdo it. I will cry if one of you, or any of your followers, were to collapse from overwork.”

    “I’ll make sure to get plenty of rest and work! We’ll take care of our life!”

    In response to Yuri’s words, Meteora replied with firm determination.

    Just as Yuri loves everyone in Yuri Empire, everyone in Yuri Empire also loves Yuri.

    The threat of me crying is very effective when it comes to everyone in Yuri Empire.
