Four Animals and a Machine

Although adding wheels made it so I could be moved, there’s quite some weight so it requires quite the physical strength; after pressing on for about an hour, they took a break.
Like that, they came to want drinks, so each of them chose a bottle.

Since it would be a problem for me if they run out of strength and willingness to continue, I offered the drinks cheaply, but it appears they don’t need liquid to that extent. If you compare it to the amount of meat they eat, they don’t drink any more than a normal amount.

With a number of breaks inserted, we progressed for the entire day, but it honestly doesn’t feel like it. Looking up the path, the surrounding scenery pretty much doesn’t change, so it’s to the degree that I’m uneasy about whether we’ve actually made any progress or not.

Occasionally a divergent path will appear, but I’ve known how complicated it is since before. Since I have completely recorded the panoramic of the maze by photographing it with the security camera, after all.

As it became evening, these guys began to make camp preparations quite early. I’ve heard from the gatekeeper Karios that monsters become more vicious at night, so they’re probably being cautious against that.

It was like this at noon, but at night I sold a massive amount of products as well. I’ve since gone past horror and reached admiration for their appetite. If they had an eating contest against the Fools of Whimsy Brigade’s big eater, the archer Shui, it promises to be interesting. (more…)

Demons of Gluttony

Their vigilance hasn’t waned, but it looks like they’re interested in the kara’age. If I offered everything for free, if they try to get at my contents for products they desire without purchasing, that would also be troublesome.

“Mou, let’s try and eat it. We don’t food anymore; my stomach’s all empty.”

Alright; the bear-cat called Pel has given into the temptation. Just as he appears, he’s the gluttonous character.

“You idiot, Pel. Even if we’re called Demonic Big Eaters, you can’t forget your pride as a Pouch Bear Cat Demons.

Said Mikene. It’s fine that he’s sticking his chest out like all leader-like, but what the heck is a Demonic Big Eater? And that Pouch Bear Cat Demons is a long name.

A New Meeting

Haaa, the weather’s great today.
While basking in the sunlight flooding from the sky, I’m living the laidback life.

Three days have passed since then, but not a single person has dropped by. But I don’t have a single bit of impatience. Because just basking in the sun is happiness enough.

If it was the time before now, since my Points would be slowly but steadily reducing, I don’t doubt that I’d be living in mild dread. But now my Points are increasing.

The reason for this is that on top of my head. A new Function and addition of a slightly slanted roof with a solar panel attached. With this, on sunny days I’ll store up Points without doing anything.

See, choosing to rank up was the correct choice! –tte, there’s nobody around, so why am I trying to justify it?

It seems this solar panel was originally intended to conserve energy and for times of emergencies. For me it’s quite efficient; if the weather is good, I can gather 10 Points every hour. If I can earn Points from the sky, then I have more than enough to survive.

A New Power

From the Divine Gifts that required me to get 1 million points, the necessary abilities are, oh, right, first let’s organize them.
The sword related and hand-to-hand combat ones, and all the ones I can’t use because I don’t have hands or feet to use them are out of the question.
For fire magic, water magic, and all those magic related abilities, I don’t have mana, so they’re excluded.
For the ones that are left, let’s analyze them carefully on whether they’re useful abilities for a vending machine. First of all is this one.

《Telekinesis》, or PK1, you could say; it’s the psychic power to be able to move something without touching it, na. Let’s look at the description.

《It is possible to manipulate any body within a one meter radius around yourself. However, it is restricted by weight and is limited to products only.》

VendM 037: Falling

Falling

The ground split and crumbled.

Together with the earth, I’m in the middle of a nosedive. Looking upwards I see a ceiling of earth; up there, holes are opening up everywhere. Those holes aren’t that big, so even though I fell, the eight-legged alligator’s bones cover up the holes from above, and so it seems they were spared from free-falling.

And then, turning my eyes below, there are clouds. Because I have Barrier affixed to me, there’s no feeling of air pressure, but … I can understand that I’m falling at a tremendous speed!
Eeeeee-, once you fall out of the ground there’s a sky, it’s fantasy alright!
Uooooo-, we’re so high you can’t see the ground, eeee-, aaa-, c,c,calm down!
First I should figure out the present circumstance. You need to understand your own situation!

The place is, in the middle of the clouds!
The situation is, in the middle of falling!
The result is, destruction by crashing!

The Fighting Vending Machine

For buying time, with <Barrier> repelling its attacks like this, if it’s just enduring, I might be able to hold out some how, but if this goes on and it heads towards the community, I don’t know whether the Hunter Association’s fortress walls can hold up to this.
At the very least, whether each and every person would be saved like the previous time is doubtful.

The always helpful inn’s Okami-san and Munami. My most regular customers, the gatekeepers Karios and Gols. The three morning regulars, no, with the granddaughter who’s joined them recently, it’s four. The contraceptive buying Shirley. The blonde ojou-sama and her black-clothed shadow, the two money-changers, and so many other customers are all in that community.

Alligator Killing

“Leader. The gakujinma are getting up onto the bank. It looks like they’re shivering because it’s cold, yo-. Seems like they’re lying down listlessly.” (Red)

When Red, who had gone to scout the situation of the bog, came back, he gave his report.
Leader Keryoil, sprawled on top of a large rock, said, “Good job,” lifting a hand.

“It looks like a good situation, but even if you say they can’t move, the other ones of those guys will respond if we attack. Vice-Leader, is it possible to use Fog Magic to obstruct their vision?”(Keryoil)

“It’s not like I can’t, but if you wanted me to cover the entire bog, it’s impossible.”(Fulmina)

Oo, Fog Magic huh? Mist floating above a bog has an elegant sound to it, na. (more…)

Dealing with Alligators

The boar cargo cart came to a stop due to a cave-in in the rocky mountains; lying down on top of the cart’s canopy, lying fully stretched out, is a man.

FUAAAAaaa. We’re about to enter those guys’ habitat, so you guys, look sharp, yo-“

“Then, I think Leader should come down from the top of the canopy.”

“Maybe I should stab him with my spear from underneath.”

I think it’s a good idea. Nice suggestion, Red-White twins. (more…)

Companion for the Journey

I’m staring at the sky over the meadow with clouds floating over it here and there, but I’m being transported by a girl … if you think about it too deeply, you’ll lose. About three hours have passed since we departed early in the morning, so for the moment we are taking a short break.

The large unasusu still seems to have more than enough strength, and Ramis, who ran alongside it, also doesn’t show any weariness in her actions. It’s not the first time I’ve thought it, but what an outrageous physical ability this girl has.

Spring is Coming

“Karios-san, your collar is crooked.”

“O,ou, thanks. I think I’m going to be coming home late, so even though it’ll be a bit lonely, don’t cry.”

“Ok. I’ll be waiting for you with the stew you like with a lot of eggs in it. Really, REALLY try not to get hurt.”

“It hurts so bad to leave you behind, that it feels like my body’s being torn in two … but this is work. Sorry.”

“Yes, I don’t want to be apart from you either. But I also don’t want to be a hindrance in your work. I’ll swallow my tears – -“
