The main character, Eiji, apprentices himself to a dwarf to learn blacksmithing skills in order to make his own sword.

Eiji made a disturbance and does not want be discovered by the Holy Sword Academy, so he hide his true identity and works.

In this wide, wide world, many human species live on separate lands.
There are human races, dwarves, elves, dragonians and many others.
Each of them lives with their own god.

Each race has its own strengths and weaknesses, and in most cases, they decide where to live according to their forte.
So to speak, a territory.

For example, dwarves are good at blacksmithing.
They have thick, strong arms, and blacksmithing skills which were given to them by the Dwarf god Pele.
Because of that only dwarves were allowed to create various things from minerals.
Therefore, dwarves placed great importance on minerals as materials for blacksmithing.
It was so important that they settled in a mine where minerals were produced.

Now, most mines are home to dwarves, and are called “Mining Villages” by other races.

They have a tunnel for digging out minerals, ironworks for smelting iron from the ore and a blacksmith workshop where they turned the refined iron into products.
Everything that is required to process what is excavated from nature into finished products is collected in one village, and the dwarves are in charge of all of it.

It is said that there are as many mining villages as there are mines in the world.

Among them.

There was a small mining village that mainly produced and processed iron.
Naturally, only dwarves worked there.
However, there was only one other race working in the dwarves mine.

It was the human race.

Half a year had passed since the new Sword Master, the guardian of the human race, disappeared without a trace.

“Hey, Eiji! Stop slacking around and carry the ore!!”
“Yes! Right away!!”

Today, Eiji was given hell by his senior Dwarves as well.

At the bottom of the tunnels, the ore is smashed with hammers and melted in the iron furnaces outside to be refined into iron.
For that reason, the ore need to be carried out of the mine.
Eiji was pushing a wheelbarrow full of ore as hard as he could.
He was the only human in a mine where only dwarves worked.
Surrounded by the thick and small dwarves, the human’s slenderness stood out even more.

“Eiji! My hammer broke! Get me a new replacement!!”
“Eiji! I’m thirsty! Bring me water!”
“Eiji! We dug a tunnel and underground water came out!”
“We need to evacuate!”
“Eiji! The tunnel caved in!”

As a newcomer who just joined a few months ago, Eiji’s position in the village is the lowest.
He is engaged in hard work in the tunnels and is treated with contempt by the senior dwarves in the same workplace.
The man there seemed to be a completely different person from the one who was praised as a Sword Master in the past by the higher-ups of the pure Holy Sword Academy.

Maybe they really are different person.

So, talking about cave in.
It is when the ceiling or side of a tunnel that has been dug collapses.

“Run! Ruuuuuuuuun!!”

Collapsing tunnels are a common occurrence inside a mine, but if you are buried alive, you will surely die, so on this occasion, regardless of their status or race, everyone will run away together.
The tunnels were collapsing.
Eiji, for example, ran with two senior dwarves who had been injured when they rush to escape, but they were still able to escape to the safe zone normally.

“We should be fine here……”

Working in the tunnels is scary.
Not only is there a risk of collapsing, but if you dig underground, toxic gases can erupt, and even underground water can gush out.
In either case, die due to poisoning from gas inhalation or drowning from underground water is a common occurrence.
The tunnels were a magical world where deat
