Greatest Alchemist? Chapter 93

Chapter 93: Spring of the 3rd Year

Two years have passed since I came to Mildgard, and I turned 17.
I travel back and forth Volton town and Wedgefort, working hectically. Wedgefort town is bustling with adventurers and merchants, and I hear that the number of stationed soldiers there is close to 3,000.

It was like the two years passed by in a flash. Receiving kindness from everyone at Bohd Village, I was able to prepare myself to live in this world. With the personality and policies of Godwin-sama, the lord ruling Volton, it was a good town easy to live in, and I understood very well that the his Majesty was a wise king when he summoned me. I think Norn-san chose to send me to that place after considering the surrounding environment.

These several months, I’ve been making an effort to strengthen the 『Sword of the Absorber』 that Sophia and I use with the ores and ingots we got from the dungeon during our work breaks.

The reason is because the ores and ingots we obtained contain a small amount of orichalcum. But it isn’t much though, and not an amount that can be forged into a sword. So I thought to use synthesis to compound our swords.

・ Absolute Sword (Zekken) Tsukuyomi
A magic sword capable of absorbing the magic power of the opponent it cuts.
The more magic power it absorbs, the sharper and more powerful it becomes.
『Strong Slash』 『Self Repair』

・Sacred Sword (Seiken) Amaterasu
A magic sword capable of absorbing the magic power of the opponent it cuts.
The more magic power it absorbs, the sharper and more powerful it becomes.
『Strong Slash』 『Self Repair』

As a result, the sword bestowed with the Light attribute was the Sacred Sword Amaterasu. It deals tremendous damage to enemies that are unaffected by physical attacks like the undead. The effect of having been transmuted with orichalcum was that it raised the hardness and toughness by several degrees, boasting a cutting edge that would easily cut through adamantite alloy
The sword blade shines a bright blue, and it was remade with a workmanship that wasn’t inferior.
I’ll have Sophia use this sword.

The other one, the Absolute Sword Tsukuyomi, which was bestowed with Dark and Lightning attributes, had become a slightly powerful magic sword.
If one is even grazed by this sword, it is able to deal damage to the mind/soul*(?). Furthermore, it adds an extra paralysis with the Lightning attribute. Given that it still has the special characteristic of absorbing magic power, a fiendish magic sword was completed.

I made Marnie-san, who works as a maid, always wear a classic long skirt maid outfit, but, while this is limited to within our house, it’s like the backlash was extreme when she wears her plain high-exposure clothes. According to Laeva, it is a disposition of the Rabbitkin to have a tendency for seeking a partner that is strong, and she intends to make me, a strong male, like her. I should discuss this with Sophia and Maria. Well, I definitely wouldn’t be able to keep my reasoning.

Sophia started polishing not only her use of the sword and spear, but also her attribute magic and spirit magic, and I think she is the most balanced in the party.

Maria has risen to adventurer rank C, but her rank is just the surface as she’s obtained the strength of equal to a top adventurer. Her skill at sewing has risen and she and Kaede are responsible for our clothing and underwear.

Laeva has improved at alchemy. She’s reached the point where she can transmute chantlessly even if a portion of the transmutation circle is missing. And she’s already apprentice level as a magic blacksmith. Her current adventurer rank is D.

Kaede is still an excellent seamstress and she creates a clothing and underwear with a variety of designs with Maria. It seems she personally accepts work from the Papeck Company too.

Titan commands the gatekeeper golems and specializes is being our bodyguard. Thanks to Titan, the gatekeeper golems’ performance has greatly improved.
Tsubaki, who has evolved into a Dragon Horse, has no rivals around Volton. Even enemies who are difficult to damage with physical attacks die against the breath that Tsubaki acquired. Her running speed and stamina have improved, extending our area of activity.

And lastly, Marnie-san. Compared to the haggard-looking woman she was when she had first arrived, she’s now cheerful. She seems to be on good terms with Sophia and the others too. Apparently, she’s taking lessons on self-defense dagger techniques and taijutsu from Maria. Once afraid of Kaede, Marnie-san has now opened up to her. And she appeals strongly to me. If a voluptuous woman with a dynamite body appeals to me with a passionate gaze, even I think it would only be a matter of time before the dam of my desires bursts.

This is how the turbulent 3rd year started for me.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

    If Takumi has been in Mildgard for two years, his story is now only one and a half years behind Akane’s from Idle Talk 05. Her plan there is to go on an expedition to the dungeon at the area bordering of Lomaria Kingdom and Triaria Kingdom. That would put her closer to Wedgefort wouldn’t it? Takumi’s story will need to progress a while for them to meet up though.

    So Marnie says that single Beastkin women are attracted to strong men but Laeva says that single Rabbitkin women are attracted to strong men. An interesting difference. Laeva is still pretty much a black box to us; why does she need to send so much money back home? Given how easily Takumi’s household earn massive amounts of money she must have sent quite a bit back by now.

  2. It is just my two cents. I think it maybe better to store the images at Patreon. One reason is it prevent the publisher to find it, and second it served as perk to your supporter. If you store the image to Discord, it is still a semi-public access as the publisher can be able to obtain.

    Hope you feeling better and thanks for the treat.

    • I agree with sfcipher. It’s safer to keep it in for patreon. We don’t want you getting caught and asked to stop translating. No picture is better than no chapters.

      Thank you for the chapter!

  3. [adamantite alloy] -> {adamantite alloy.}
    [underwear with a variety] -> {underwear of a variety} ~ not really wrong though;
    ~ about that mind/soul part, idk(if it’s referring to the dark attribute, maybe it’s damage to the soul, like in Ishizoku Reviewers)

    Well, this really felt short, but it’s a nice start for a new volume/arc. It seems like another time skip, but probably only a couple months, a year at most, since there were other such skips before, so it’s not bad. At this point, the hero summoning should happen, but there is also a period of training before, so still more chapters to go 😀
    Thanks for the chapter! Awesome translation! God bless you, take care, and stay healthy!

    P.S. About the images, no request here, just stay safe, from the predatory publisher, lolz 😂

  4. Thanks for the chapter.

    Takumis Status seem kind of bland considering the time spent and things accomplished specially after a time jump.

  5. How hard is it to master a production job? How is Alchemist still not lv. 100?
    Also. 2/3 of the time that was given to him by the goddess has been used. Let’s see how that works out.

  6. I hope you placed the illustration on discord server, but i see a lot of people patreon is better. Well, the choice is yours~

    And Thanks for the chappu~

  7. Not a chance of me booting up Discord and scrolling through a bunch of chat just to view the pics … I’m not clear on why it’s such a popular idea, but I see it a lot and have found it a frustrating experience to try to find what I want on discord servers. Well, if you make a separate channel for pics only it might be less awful(too many people just have one channel for everything >~<) but I can’t say I’d even give the idea of visiting yet another discord the time of day.

    • I also dislike messy discords so I would have made a bunch of channels, even per volume. But from the comments that mention pictures, most people want me to keep it on Patreon, so now I dunno what to do.
