    Well, that's a bit gruesome. I wonder if the person is freed if the toad is killed? Also wondering how they're planning to fight enemies that travel underground.

    On an unrelated note, I don't get why he doesn't loan the items out for free at the start of each hunt. Them being stronger is definitely a good thing for him. If they want to take the items and go to another team, then they can buy them from the group at that time. If they get better gear, then they can sell the old gear and divide the profits evenly. Yeah, you lose out on the contribution based division, but since the whole team benefits from this system, I doubt anyone would care. If they do though, then its a simple thing to record the split for each of the items.

    I think it's because he wants to keep all the ores from the hunts so that he can do the upgrade. But the ores are usually sold and contribution splits are done among members. But if he keeps the ores, he has to pay them in some other way. So renting out the stuff he has is helpful to his team members but it also helps him cashflow paying them for the ores they pick up during hunts. The allusion to this was super subtle in the chapter when he found out about the manual upgrade.

    Makes sense. I didn't even think of this. I think author should have made this clearer.

    I thought the rental fee was paid to the group as a whole though? So he's only getting 1k per trip, that's not really enough to make a dent in the ore expenditures. Besides, as long as he's buying them for the amount that they would have gotten from selling them on-site, he's still getting them below market value. Combine that with the super cheap level one weapons and the stuff he makes should, on average, double or nearly double his investment. He doesn't really need the very minor profit he gets from renting the gear and simply loaning it would benefit him more in the long run. Not only in terms of strengthening the team but also in terms of strengthening their bonds.

    Got around to reading this, finally.

    The start wasn't great, but the novel really comes into its own once the MC becomes a Hunter. I particularly like how he manages/cultivates his own little group of low-level hunters, even though he could easily ditch them and join higher-level groups by himself.
    A refreshing change of pace from all the other game-element novels with solo/loner MCs.

    How could the Yucatan Peninsula be connected to Alaska or Siberia? That makes no sense.

    I wonder why the world revolves around the MC? Though finding out the connection like this will at least enable him to halt his growth at 28-29 in the future.

    I feel that the level 1-2 monsters won't be the real threat in the West Sea. PvP will probably be very common, especially if people start dropping items for those who don't have a level 0 skill.

    I'm telling you. I seriously think that there's someone controlling everything. Like God. Or they think they're in a real world but it's all fake? And someone is pulling all the strings? Or is that too farfetched lol
