The Man Picked up by the Gods – Volume 2 Chapter 47: Building a Store 3 (4/4) (SHORT)

Next up was the guild master and Maelyn-san. I told them the same thing and invited them. Apparently, they would be free three days later. I called out to Jeff-san’s group and the others who participated in the disease prevention mission, and it seems they’ll be able to make it. I’ll drop by the guild again tomorrow.

I went to the merchants guild next. When I requested to send a message to the guild master, I was brought to the guest room.

“You came. It’s been a week, hasn’t it? How are things?” [Grisiera]

“Thanks to your help, the store has finally taken shape.” [Ryouma]

“You’ve built it already? Although I’ve yet to check the quality of the construction, wouldn’t this mean you’re capable of carpentry too?” [Grisiera]

“I can only build simple stuff, though.” [Ryouma]

“That’s more than enough since only nobles would go out of their way to design elaborate houses.” [Grisiera]

Oh, right.

“Did you come here to report your store’s completion?” [Grisiera]

“I’m planning to gather my acquaintances to give my store a test run, and then hold a party to celebrate the completion of the store afterwards. Guildmaster, I’ve already been in your care, so if it’s not too much trouble…” [Ryouma]

“You’re inviting me?” [Grisiera]

“It’ll just be a small party, though there will be some people you know attending. If you’re alright with that, then by all means, please come.” [Ryouma]

“Hee hee hee, a lighthearted party is good. In fact, it’s best for parties to be that way. I rarely get asked to such gatherings because of my standings, and even when they pretend to be lighthearted, they’re all stiff, it’s boring. Since your adventurer friends will be coming too, it should be a really lighthearted party, right?” [Grisiera]

“Yes. I’m not good with formal stuff. Even my polite language is shallow.” [Ryouma]

“Alright. So, when is the party?” [Grisiera]

“I’m currently planning on holding it 3 days later, but it might still change depending on others’ schedule, so I need to confirm with everyone first. I’ll pass a message tomorrow.

By the way, could you tell me Pioro-san’s contact information. I’d like to invite him too if possible.” [Ryouma]

“That guy already left 3 days ago. His store’s main branch is in another city, but he should be dropping by here tomorrow under the pretense of attending the meeting, though his real purpose is actually to play hooky. I’ll invite him for you.” [Grisiera]

I tanked the guild master and left the merchant guild.

After that I dropped by the tamer guild, and then went home. I told the ojousama and the others about the preopening of my store and invited them. When I did, they were elated, and it was decided that the four members of the duke’s family, Sebasu-san, Arone-san, Lilian-san, and the four guards, Jill-san and the others, would be coming.

With this we have 11 people from the ojousama’s side + 11 from the adventurers guild + 5 from the merchants guild, totaling to 27 people all in all. If you include me, that’s 28.

I don’t have any achievements to speak of, so I couldn’t meet with the head of Gimuru’s tamer guild, Taylor. I left a message, but I’ve yet to receive his reply. If e comes, that’ll bring our numbers up to 29.

…I’ll hold the party at the servants’ break room. That way we’ll have enough room.

I should also drop by the adventurers guild tomorrow to confirm the schedule of the adventurers and contact some other people.


10th day.

The adventurers all agreed to come. I also got a response from the tamer guild through the receptionist, saying that the tamer guild branch head would be making an appearance.

With that, I left a message at Serge-san’s store and at the guild that the test run of the store will be on the morning the day after tomorrow, while the party will be held in the afternoon of the same day.

After that I went back to the abandoned mine that I hadn’t visited in a week and did some rounds, then I went back home. After informing the ojousama and the others of the plans the day after tomorrow, the day ended.

    The need for tanking an old woman, even if she’s the guild master, I didn’t realise she dealt that much damage.
    At least there dosn’t appear to be the need for kite-ing her

    “I “thanked” the guild master and left the merchant guild.”

    Thank you for the chapter, so please don’t stop because of my bad humor

      You have to be wary of these grannies. Maybe her class is witch debuffer and he was tanking all the curses. or maybe she has made cookies and made Ryoma eat it all till full(tanking)

      New stuff is the tamer guild branch head assisting. Maybe this could change a lot from the original or just skip the lame villain old guild brach head

      Remember that in her last appearance, she showed that her attacks ignore defense, so you’re gonna take a lot of damage if you take her lightly.

        Don’t forget mind reading which should give her mild precognition, at the very least tactics and plans are useless. Also possibility of using guilt attacks for passive debuff

      You underestimate the power of the God of Wine’s blessing. He was actually sharing some really good booze with a really old granny. Got to make those inroads with the people of power.

      It’s been almost three years, and your comment still makes me laugh out loud. Mainly because I knew a few old ladies I’d have paid someone money to tank on my behalf, and a couple of younger ones today I’m very careful to stay out of their attack range.

    The non-standard quotation mark usage (eg, not starting a second paragraph with ” when the same speaker is still talking) is always so jarring because I never expect it.

    Thanks for the chapter
    Surprised he even thought of a party with his workaholic life
    Or that anyone other than nobles or vice-versa would consider going to a small party of his

    Thanks for chapter^^ Hmm the part that was new(reboot)…. he invited that taming master to his party?????????

      the taming master is a good guy in the reboot

    2. ironyisnotdead Avatar

      Maybe with the Drinking God’s blessing the Merchant Guild Granny will get “tanked” aswell as thanked.
      Massive change from original version. Instead of Taming Guild Master trying to destroy his business, he’s invited to the grand opening party. And gets “tanked” too.
      Thanks for the chapter

    Having a party for a laundromat… as someone who used such places in the past, I can’t wrap my head around such a concept. It’s noisy and smells like Tide. Sorry, I can’t do it…

    If e comes, -> If he comes,

    Thanks for the treat.

    Wow, I see a big change from the Old Version~
    I’m excited~ Does this mean the tamer will be a big ally for him now?

    I hope he will help Ryouma establish the Slime Association or promote the taming of Slimes and raising their popularity as Allies and as Pets~
