Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Sword Oratoria (Japanese: ダンジョンに出会いを求めるのは間違っているだろうか外伝 ソード・オラトリア, Hepburn: Danjon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka Gaiden: Sōdo Oratoria), is a Japanese light novel side story series, written by Fujino Ōmori and illustrated by Kiyotaka Haimura (based on the designs by Suzuhito Yasuda). The story focuses on the character Ais Wallenstein from the parent Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? series.

Overview[edit]

Setting[edit]

The story and time-frame, just like Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, takes place in the fictional city of Orario whose main feature place is the Dungeon (ダンジョン, Danjon) which contains an assortment of monsters from goblins to dragons. Adventurers visit the dungeon to defeat monsters and take their crystal shards, which are used to craft magic items, among other treasures; however, they can also be exchanged for the world's currency. The people of Orario join groups called Familia (ファミリア, Famiria), who serve a range of functions from dungeon crawling to crafting items. Each Familia is named after and serves a resident deity. In a fashion similar to role playing games, the adventurers are grouped into levels, increasing their levels and abilities according to their achievements.[1][2]

Plot[edit]

The story follows the same time-frame as Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, but this time centers on the Loki Familia. It highlights events of the Loki Familia that were only mentioned in the main story, overlapping with events from it.
