The next day.

I went outside when I woke up, but it was still dark.

Did I sleep too much yesterday? It’s still too early to go to town.

As such, I went ahead and used the time to add a kitchen and a storehouse to the abandoned mines. I also arranged the contents of my Item Box. I stored most of my herb-related stuff in the lab [1], but the Item Box was full of the unsold pelt.
Pelt, pelt, pelt, pelt, black tea… The black tea goes to the kitchen.

Pelt, pelt, pelt, pelt, pelt, pelt, money… Ah, these are the bandits’ possession… weapon, armor, armor, weapon, weapon… Come to think of it, I completely forgot about that bandit, Melzel’s, spear. Let’s mess with it later. Next is… more pelt.

“Pelt again. I have way too many of these things. Honestly, why did I have to go and take everything? I should’ve just let the slimes eat them. At least that way they wouldn’t have gone to waste.” [Ryouma]

As I continued arranging the contents of my Item Box, I found something strange.

“What is this?” [Ryouma]

It was a goblet.

Everything I’ve made is either made with stone through earth magic or with shaved wood, but this goblet is made out of silver. Moreover, it’s also adorned with gold and jewels.

Why is something so luxurious inside my Item Box?

I doubt this belonged to the bandits. I checked my possessions when I left the forest, and this wasn’t on me then. I do recall seeing this once, though…

I used Identify on the goblet.

 


Divine Vessel. The Goblet of the God of Wine, Tekun.

A divine vessel created by the god of wine, Tekun.

It is imbued with the power of the god of wine and can produce an endless supply of liquor in exchange for mana.

Owner: Ryouma Takebayashi


 

!?!?!? Wait a minute! What is this? Why would I have something crazy like a divine vessel with me!?

…!!!

“Oh, wait! This is that goblet Tekun gave me when we met! I brought that back with me!?” [Ryouma]

Thinking back on it, I just stuffed everything back into my Item Box, so it seems I accidentally brought it back with me.

“Isn’t this like really bad? …I need to go to the church!” [Ryouma]

I stuffed the goblet back into my Item Box and put my slimes into my Dimension Home, then I left the abandoned mine and hurried to town. I went as fast as I could.

 
 
 

I went straight to the church as soon as I got to the town. When I reached the entrance of the churce, a girl opened the door.

“Oh, are you here to visit the chapel?” [Nun]

“Yes, can I?” [Ryouma]

“Yes, of course. It sure is rare to see someone come so early…” [Nun]

I don’t really have time to chat, but…

“I’ve been quite busy with work, so I didn’t have any other time to come than now.” [Ryouma]

“I see.” [Nun]

The nun brought me to the chapel.

Honestly, I remember the way already, so I actually wanted to refuse her and just run straight to the chapel, but I had to keep up appearances, so I just thanked the girl and then took took a seat and prayed.

Tekun! Please take me to the divine realm!!

A few seconds after I prayed that, a white light filled my vision and brought me to the divine realm.

My prayer worked!

When the light stopped, I turned around and Tekun was there.

At that, I heaved a sigh of relief.

“You called, Ryouma? Actually, how did you call me? I definitely heard your voice just now.” [Tekun]

“I prayed at church.” [Ryouma]

“Oh, come on! As if just that would be able to call me a god so easily. If that were true we gods would be getting calls everyday.” [Tekun]

“Even if you say that… Ah, but forget that, I have something I need to talk to you about.” [Ryouma]

“What happened?” [Tekun]

Instead of words, I decided to just show him the goblet.

When Tekun saw it, he opened his eyes wide and looked alternatively between the goblet and the hole made by my Item Box.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    Is it just me or is the author making very few changes to the original story? i just read this almost word for word yesterday in the other version…

    • Isaac Cunningham says:

      It’s mostly the same currently, it changes later tho, the original was full of time skips and other underscribed things, the remake goes into the details of those time skips, tho it is going to take a long time for it to catch up to the original

      • caudyr says:

        Not only that, I really hope it gives Ryouma some actual romance this time around…the guy freaking deserves it, after all. Hell, he deserves a damn harem (especially with all the chicks that appear in general)…but I’ll be happy if he just gets ONE real romance target.

        As for them being more or less the same…IIRC the author had decided to rewrite it and have the story deviate starting in this volume, no? He had written himself into a corner or something like that, iirc…right?

        • DRAGO says:

          It didn’t feel like he was in a corner, unless you’re talking about antagonists. The tamer’s guild I the original seemed more like a den of thieves than the dark guild, so maybe hee wanted to tone that back and show that there is a moderate faction within it?

        • Aliamus says:

          Well i guess i should have expected that, it is a reboot after all not completely new, and +1 for romance please.

    Thanks for the chapter (part)! I’ll mention a few things here in the hopes that you get around to fixing/doing something about them! ^^

    …………………….

    Everything I’ve made is either made with stone through earth magic or with shaved wood, but this goblet is made out of silver. Moreover, it’s also adorned with gold and jewels.

    “Everything I’ve made is either made with stone through earth magic or with shaved wood” —> “Everything I’ve made has either been made from carved wood or from stone through the use of earth magic”

    It isn’t a big deal, tbh…you could simply change “shaved wood” to “carved wood” and it’d probably be fine, but since I”m mentioning other things, I figured I’d mention the whole thing.^^

    …………………….

    Taken! Please take me to the divine realm!!

    As someone has already mentioned, “Taken” should be “Tekun”. ^^

    …………………….

    “Oh, come on! As if just that would be able to call me a god so easily. If that were true we gods would be getting calls everyday.” [Tekun]

    “As if just that would be able to call me a god so easily.” —> “As if just that would be able to call me, a god, so easily.”

    Given the spot where he’s specifying that he himself is a god, I’m pretty sure that these commas should be there to put a pause in and draw attention to this fact. It reads really strangely to my eyes otherwise, though again…it’s not the biggest deal in the world or anything like that. ^^

    …………………….

    Divine Vessel. The Goblet of the God of Wine, Tekun.

    A divine vessel created by the god of wine, Tekun.

    It is imbued with the power of the god of wine and can produce an endless supply of liquor in exchange for aman.

    A few things for this one.

    1.) Shouldn’t all mentions of the “God of Wine” in this be capitalized, since it’s part of his name and everything, and a title if nothing else?

    2.) As someone else mentioned in another comment, this one is rather glaring, heh: “aman” should be “mana”. ^^

    3.) This is probably the most important thing that I wanted to suggest, tbh…even though it’s not really a grammar/spelling correction. Can we get some demarcation between his Identify results and the rest of the text (and other similar things like this)? It’s hard to tell where they end when it just runs along with the text in the way it is. You could do something fancy with tables if you wanted, but honestly, just having “—-“, “===”, or “___” at the start and end of the Identify results would be enough of a separation so that people don’t confuse where they start and end. ^^

    …………………….

    Anyway, thanks again for the chapter (part)! ^^

    • caudyr says:

      For that last bit of my comment, I forgot to mention that another way to do it (and maybe even less tedious than the others) could be to simply put a horizontal line at the start and end of the text. I’d think there should be simple code to do that for the site, at the very least. ^^

      Whether it’s easier/less tedious or not would definitely depend on the person, though.
