Chapter 133: All the villains are all in the same house is a silly trope, but when they’re all in the same country, you have to wonder about the country’s state

[“… So it’s Extus again…”]

Seimei-san’s voice echoes through the room.

I have the Friend Chat settings to speaker call, so Troy-san can also hear him.

As for him being able to hear Troy-san, as long as Troy-san speaks somewhat loudly, it seems to go through alright.

After I got Seimei-san on the line, Troy-san explained various things about the situation he was in.

The main parts are that there appears to be quite a few people from Earth who have gotten transported here as well, and that Extus, a very tyrannical nation, are buying up all the Asian-looking slaves they could find. (more…)

Chapter 132: Our meeting can be called a miracle, or it could be called fate. Or maybe it’s just a common rarity event in the random event generator called life.

Following the mysterious man who could write Japanese, I can’t help wondering what his deal is.

Although, it can only be one of two things, so it’s not like he’s really that mysterious.

He’s either a gamer, or he knows a gamer, right? (more…)

Chapter 131: Acquiring new gear and new companions go hand in hand with protagonists


It’s been a while since I’ve had a proper forge, and even longer since I’ve gone all out.

My MP is pretty much drained, but after using some of the techniques I’d thought up while we had been on the road, I’m really happy with the magic ore sword I smithed today.

It’s a katana again~. (more…)

Chapter 130: When both sides are eager to come to a deal, negotiations go pretty easily.

I didn’t get to see a lot of Clanger’s Alley last time, since I was with Ragnall and Hibiki, or like, we had other business going on, so I was surprised to see exactly how vast Clanger’s “Alley” is.

Rather than an alley… it’s a broad area spanning several streets off the main road.

Since it’s more of an adventuring town instead of a production town, I assumed the facilities for each smith would be modest, but in retrospect, Labyrinth Cities are all extremely large cities that cater to adventurers and mercenaries, so I probably should have expected forges at least as big as the ones in Nyl.

Chapter 129: Proper tools and facilities are obviously necessary for work, but human relations are often just as important

After that, the angry mob of armorsmiths (or at least, I assume they were all armorsmiths) slunk away quickly – as quickly as they could.

Their disagreement had attracted a lot of attention already, and once Ragnall stepped in …

Well, there are a lot of people crowded into the narrow streets trying to see what’s going on.

Yeah, yeah, I get it. Or like, I was made to get it. (more…)

Chapter 128: Precious items can be more of a curse than a blessing at times

When I had filled the dagger to a degree that would have killed many a normal mage, it gave a little shudder in my hand, like it wanted to break free.

I loosened my grip a little, expecting … well, I’m not really sure what I was expecting.

The dagger seemed to hover for a second, as if trying to float, but then it fell towards the ground.

“Uoops. Almost dropped it.” (more…)

Chapter 127: We’re getting towards half-ish through, so I guess I should start pulling the plot points together or something

After some time, we finally got on topic and Desmond brought up the real reason we came.

“The Demon Lord…”

The deep elf Diplomat hid her mouth with her fan as she closed her eyes, her brows furrowing.

Finally she let out a sniff and fluttered her fan. (more…)

Chapter 126: Just because you make the character a woman doesn’t mean everything she does will be permitted.

Right, so all I did was run a spell on the level of a prank through a diplomat’s guards.

…Yeah, not even I can pretend this isn’t a problem…

Now the confusing thing is that, instead of trying to arrest me, all the guards, and even the arrogant deep-elf guy, are all kneeling down in front of me, terrified. (more…)

Chapter 124: Expectations for different cultures can often be off target

Right, so I’ve left all those materials with the Kartinez Sisters, as well as some jeweled beetle carapaces and crystal python scales.

Looks like the jeweled beetles don’t show up in Ploids, so the sisters were happy to get them.

Even though they’re common in Nyl Labyrinth.

Oh right, some of my magic ores were also left with them.

Karin-san’s armor will be more of a metal armor than leather, after all. (more…)
