Epilogue - A Party and Accessories

"We were able to safely expedition to the Volcanic Area. We used human wave tactics to acquire information on quests, shops, items as well as facilities. This is all thanks to guild members' hard work. ——Cheers!"

Holding a cup with liquor in one hand, Mikadzuchi announced the start of a party ending the guild expedition.

With the people having the 【Cooking】 Sense including me, having preparing food as the centre, the members of 【Eight Million Gods】 were divided in several groups.

A group that boasted of the items they acquired during the expedition, a group that immediately opened auctions for items, and a group that shared stories of their adventures with each other.

Among them, Sei-nee and I stood in a conspicuous place.

"Well then, we will be opening the 【Tsuzura Boxes】!"

Sei-nee took out a large tsuzura, I took out a small one.

"Ready, Yun-chan?"

"Any time."

"One, two--!

We matched our timing as we opened the lids, for just a moment light spilled out from inside and we saw items inside.

"...uu, this is?!"

Inside Sei-nee's large tsuzura box there were three pieces of rare crafting material, 【Jewelled Branch of Hōrai】.

"That's great, Sei-nee. It's the material you wanted."

"I'm glad, my luck wasn't bad this time! In the very end I got the item I wanted. But..."

She smiled happily, but a slight shadow appeared on her face.

"To make the staff I only need three, so I'll have two spare ones."

"Oh, that's...'

Since it was a rare material in the first place, it had a limited number of uses.

"Inside my tsuzura there are..."

Inside the small box there were earrings, necklace and a hair clip, these three types of accessories.

"Accessories, and kinda rare-looking?"

The effects of the accessories were things like "halves max HP but increases stats", "increases stats when HP falls below a certain percentage", "increases speed, but constantly consumes MP in exchange". Each of them had peaky effect.

"So Yun-chan got unique accessories."

Since they have effects difficult for me to use they'll probably end up as references for crafting, I thought and heaved a sigh.

However, for people who were watching over me and Sei-nee as we broke the seals on the boxes, the items we got were classified as jackpot, which further motivated everyone to challenge the arena.

"Well then, let's go back to Mikadzuchi."

"You're right. And since there's food prepared, let's eat some on the way."

The two of us have headed to the corner of the hall where Mikadzuchi was.

"Oh, looks like you got some amusing items, you two."

"Welcome back, Yun-oneechan, Sei-oneechan〜."

Mikadzuchi and Myu's party have gone ahead and started eating, and were chatting with each group.

"I'm sooo envious of you two getting rare items. I'll show you I can get rare equipment in the arena too!"

"Kukuku, you sure are energetic, Myu-chan."

Seeming like she already had some alcohol in her blood, Mikadzuchi asked us when we sat down and started eating.

"The guild's expedition is over, Missy and Myu-chan, what will you do? Are you going to officially enter the guild? Or will you leave?"

It was the same thing she asked me last night. I already decided on the answer.

"I will——be going back to the 【Atelier】. I'm sorry, I have been in your guild's care."

"We are going back to our original playstyle as well, is what we decided together. It was a lot of fun this time, so if you're going for another expedition please call us."

Myu's party also decided not to enter the 【Eight Million Gods】.

Hearing our choice, the guild members who heard it have screamed.

"You guys, shut up! Sure, we failed to recruit pretty girls, but you're being too noisy!"

"But...! It's really motivating to have cute girls with us! Also master, although you have charisma, you have zero charm!"

"VRAHHH——!"

The guild members disappointed by the fact we didn't join the guild were glared at by Mikadzuchi. This isn't good, let's not break the atmosphere, I thought and came to her rescue.

"Ah, Mikadzuchi. Um... I got some acquaintances in the guild so... can I come to play sometimes?"

"""——Of course, you're welcome!"""

I was startled by the energetic reply coming from the entire hall. At the same time, seeing the bad atmosphere change with my words, Mikadzuchi spat out a long sigh.

"Aa-aah, fine, from here on it's adults' time, kids go home. And here we've gone to such lengths to recruit you, guess we gotta drown this in a drink. Also, Sei, see Missy and others off properly."

Mikadzuchi shook her hand saying "go home". Seeing that guild members said "she's being contrarian" or "she's just lonely", it looked like it was lucky guess as Mikadzuchi stood up holding her hexagonal stick.

"Thanks, Mikadzuchi."

"Thank you very much. If something interesting happens we'll come running right away!"

What we said in the end was ignored, but seeing as Mikadzuchi's ear were a little red, she must have been embarrassed. As I thought so, I walked together with Sei-nee, Myu and others to the entrance.

While hearing the guild members' voices full of grief behind my back I stopped Myu and Sei-nee for a moment.

"Myu, Sei-nee..."

"What is it? Yun-oneechan."

"Mm? Yun-chan?"

"Um... thank you for dragging me out of the workshop."

"Fufufu, so, are we going to get something as thanks? Like, a rare item."

Myu said jokingly, but I immediately responded with "yes" and passed her the bracelet I made for her.

"Eh, you really are?!"

Receiving the white beads bracelet, Myu looked at it happily and also embarrassed hearing a thank you from me.

"I'm happy, but this is kinda sly! I said that as a joke, but you really prepared an item!"

"Uh, I'll take that as thanks. Also, for Sei-nee too."

"My, thank you. I'll properly use it as equipment."

"I-I'll use mine preciously too!"

OSO_v08_275I was glad the two were happy with them.

"Well then, we'll be goin——"

"Yun-chan, Myu-chan, wait a moment."

Sei-nee stopped us as we were about to leave the guild.

"Actually, Mikadzuchi entrusted these to me. So, come to play again."

Before we left, Myu's party and I have received the golden invitation from Sei-nee, it could be said to be the 【Eight Million Guild】's free pass.

I decided to log out after coming back to the 【Atelier】.

Myu and others decided to go off on adventure somewhere after that. Sei-nee had seen us off and returned to 【Eight Million Gods】 guild home.

"Well, let's go back to my own home."

 

 

And, I have returned to the 【Atelier】 for the first time in a while.

Since I haven't been in the 【Atelier】 for a while I was a little anxious about how it's doing, but the counter-type shop was the same as usual. I was also relieved seeing Kyouko-san the NPC managing it.

"Welcome back, Yun-san."

"Yup. Kyouko-san, how is the store?"

"Both sales and consignment are as usual. As for things to report, the fruit trees planted in the field have started to bud."

"Understood. I'll check on them later. Also, these are samples of new products and their materials, could you acquire the materials if you see them on the market next time? Also, can 【Karukoko Fruits】 be cultivated in the field?"

I took our the three types of items I created in the 【Eight Million Gods】 guild and started consulting with Kyouko-san to adjust the crafting/sales system.

That's when, the entrance to the 【Atelier】 had suddenly grew noisy, then the next moment the door was opened with impetus and a stream of people have passed through it.

"Welcome back, Yun-kun! I thought you'll never come back〜."

"Yuncchi, how was 【Eight Million Gods】 tour?"

"Hmm, looks like you have new products in stock. Prices are good too. I'll be buying some."

Hearing that I returned to the 【Atelier】, Magi-san and the others have come all at once.

Also the 【Atelier】's regulars who came and had seen me on the counter seat all started saying "it's great that you're back". Confused by the sudden happening I started panicking.

"W-what's happening?! Everyone?!"

"Everyone is happy to see Yun-kun back!"

"E-even Taku's here!"

"Now, I've got work for you right away!"

Saying so, Taku showed off the 【Yellow Potion】 I previously gave him.

"This 【Yellow Potion】 is highly effective for healing the Grand Rock's heart. Sell them to me, quickly!'

"Seriously?! In that case——"Yun-kun, stop right thereee!""

Hearing Taku's words I was surprised that the problem I have been worried about before leaving the 【Atelier】 was so easily resolved and felt like dancing on spot. But that's when Magi-san interrupted us.

"No selling items for which we haven't decided reasonable prices yet! Also, Taku-kun, no monopolizing of Yun-kun, it's not fair!"

"Speaking of which, we have to consult on a fair price. Oh right, this, I brought some souvenirs from the dungeon for everyone."

"Eh, thank you. I wonder what is it."

I passed the items I acquired in the 【Demonfolk Resort】 to Magi-san and others.

Taku looked at those enviously, so I spoke to him.

"There's none for you, Taku. Rather, let's make those 【Yellow Potions】 I gave you, your souvenirs."

"Seriously...?"

"Also on other note, I don't have enough materials for 【Yellow Potions】 so the number I can make now is limited."

Hearing my words Taku drooped down disheartened, but soon enough motivation appeared on his face.

"All right, I'll gather the materials so make them for me with priority!"

Taku jumped outside without even waiting for my answer. Geez, this guy can't be helped, I thought and made a wry smile.

"There's too many things to do. Well, let's do one thing at once."

Charged with motivation after a change of pace in 【Eight Million Gods】 I resumed my interactions with acquaintances and the store's regulars.

For a few days after that, the 【Atelier】 was really busy.

My usual daily life has started again.

    Apparently, a lot of people like Yun, but no one likes him enough to tell him that he can stop whining about being weak if he just equipped even basic equipment with Enchant bonuses on them on his multiple unfilled equipment slots.

      Except, beyond the cursed accessories that are mentioned now and then, nothing (accessory-wise) has been shown to have nearly such broken stat boosts, let alone without the crippling bad status effects. So far as rings go they were apparently able to equip multiple bad stat rings during the training earlier, but as far as efficiency goes, how often are archers shown to have rings on every finger and still operate properly?

      Aside, Yun actively chose to and is adapted for support. On top of which, while it seems nobody goes out of the way to badmouth the Bow skill anymore, nobody's been shown to pick it up for any kind of example of how it "should" be done.

    Weird that the Sky Eyes, See-through, and Cook senses didn't level although Yun used them a lot during her stay with the Eight Million Gods...

    Is this because those senses were already higher ranked ones?

    Oh, in the epilogue status there's a [Crafter's Knowledge] and [Crafting Knowledge], just a super minor thing to point out, but hey.

    Thank you for the release.
    I'm happy to see "wry smile" appear. I've been thinking that "bitter smile" seemed a bit too harsh, especially with family. "Wry smile" conveys that "I'm not really happy, but I'm not angry either" feeling.

      The story probably wouldn't be as interesting if Yun did join the guild. The fact that he is separate from all the big groups but still knows people from all of them is part of what makes it interesting.

    Can Yun attach [bomb] magic gems t an arrow tip and fie them? Cause that would be so much fun, but also a little unstable.
    I want Yun, Magi and Lyly to join forces as craftsmen, of metal and bows, to make a cannon or a gun.

    Reply
    1. krytykkrytyk Post author

      It wouldn't serve its purpose. An arrow like that would be too brittle and would either break apart or shatter to pieces upon hitting a harder surface even if he managed to make some by grinding the stone AND it was big enough to work as magic gem.

      Although I don't exclude the possibility of peeps making a gun :3, but more like... a musket?

      1. Jeff

        Since the first time the bomb gems were shown in the novels i though "why not make a bolas type of weapon with those?", i mean, put some glue or something as an extra and you can keep gluing them during a fight and burst it all at once. '-'

        Reply
        1. krytykkrytyk Post author

          Why make a bolas out of it when you can just throw it? Also, bomb gems deal very, VERY low damage when used one by one. There is just no point.

          Reply
          1. Evil Twin2146

            But it would look so cool. Imagine, Yun with war paint and a bandanna walking on to a battlefield, firing muskets from long range, trapping enemies with bolas and reeking mayhem with explosions.
            On a side note, If someone were wrapped up in a net/bola and Yun cast mad pool, would they sink enough to drown?

          2. k

            It could deal BIG amount of damage if you could design the bomb like a primitive shaped charge for RPG. You know how it could even take down a tank.

          3. Abigail

            And as has been noted in the novel, is very shallow. It's an effective snare, nothing else. Sounds about as effective as a 90% movement reduction snare in today's games, but with somewhat different mechanics. Rather than be slowed way down, they just need a LOT of strength to pull free of the effect area. Meanwhile, they can still use their arms etc, any limbs outside the pool, to block, parry, attack...

          4. Evil Twin2146

            It may be a shallow pool of mud, but if you were face down in a net and the ground suddenly became viscous, you would probably have to flail about to not breathe in mud. Even if its ankle deep, that would be enough.

          5. Ralon

            I think what he meant was make the bombs sticky, attach them to an arrow, attach a bunch of bombs to a powerful enemy, and get the super chain damage that seems to be so powerful. sounds like something i would try

        2. Abigail

          @k

          You're misunderstanding the OSO game mechanics. The skill gems just hold and upon saying the keyword release a skill, in the case of bomb, upon saying the keyword, they release the effect of the earth elemental magic skill bomb. It's not a real bomb. Therefore the shape of the container will not influence the shape of the effect, which is predetermined by the skill.

          No, if it was Myu, she'd do that just for LOLs. Older sis is away at uni, if she was around she'd be the one that'd be more likely to try to protect dreams.

          Still... How would a YOUNGER sister, who, in REAL is NOT stronger than her older brother, force her older brother to do anything? Game is one thing, this would be real life where Shun is not nearly as weak (though certainly still weak for a boy) as Yun is in OSO compared to his peers.

          She'd have to come up with a way to trick him into it, really. Not force.

          1. kayue

            Shun is weak-minded towards Miu tho. He'd probably do it for her if she begged.
            Take would have a laughing fit tho. ;)

          2. Abigail

            True, but that'd still be closer to the "trick" category than "force". Use her wiles to get her way... and her older brothers weakness towards doing what she wants.

    So【Dosing Lv50】and【Crafting Knowledge Lv50】are ready to be upgraded, and 【Bow Lv48】,【Longbow Lv27】, 【Earth Element Talent Lv28】 all look like their pretty close too, I'm kind of surprised they didn't get to the required level already considering the repeated boss fights Yun went through. But does Bow even get another upgrade?

    We also know that【Alchemy Lv43】 and 【Synthesis Lv43】upgrade into 【Alchemic Arts】and 【Synthesis Arts】 at level 50 thanks to Emily, so hopefully Yun will get around to that as well and【Engraving Lv25】might have an upgrade at level 30, but since it's already been upgraded once, I'd guess it actually upgrades at level 50.

    And then there's【Bodily Resistance Lv1】and 【Spiritual Resistance Lv1】, Yun has plenty of poisons and cursed items to level them up, and I'd guess that they combine into something like 【Abnormal Status Resistance】, or 【All Resistance】 which would take up less room and presumably guard against even the unique status effects that Yun got hit with last chapter.

    I see there's probably gonna be sense upgrades next volume, eh? Looks like several others are REALLY close to the upgrade point, as well.

    Can't wait! :D

    EDIT: Also, I'm honestly surprised that Yun didn't use his Enchant Arts sense on the accessories. Maybe because they have more 'all-rounder' stat needs than Taku does, or something?

    He could've ASKED them as well I guess, though...

    It's just weird that he didn't use it, imo. =x

        @Kryryk

        Didnt Magi make a point near the beginning about how her enchants ignore the effect slot limit slightly? You know, when Yun brought the ring she made and enchanted and she was greatly surprised/astounded really!

        Or do I remember incorrectly?

        Reply
        1. krytykkrytyk Post author

          You remember incorrectly. Yun had used negative enchant in order to balance off the positive enchants to add more of them.

          Reply
          1. Neo

            Yes. But the main reason was that there was more than one enchant while her engraving only allows one. However they can exist at the same item (engraved and enxhanted items). As such they dont affect the enchancement limit, instead seem to have their own limits.

            My guess is that theres a limit to EACH enhancement type:

            -Enchantment (depends on quality of item and each additional positive enchantment requires a negayive enchantment)

            -Engraving/Embroidery(tailoring) (only one per item)

            -Enhancement Item (limited by item rank, the reward weapons slots may be especifically for this type of enhancement.)

            Crafted Effect (the effects given innately by the material used to create the item such as Bluerite giving water properties. Might combine with tje material enhancement)

            -Temporary Enhancement (only one at a time on items and those applied by items take precedence over those applied by skills)

            I now also remember where i read about overvoming the limit... With the Material Merchants experiments (as she referred to herself back then)

          2. krytykkrytyk Post author

            No, your guess is wrong. There's a total limit for additional effects on each item, depending on the material it's made from.

          3. Roaming Reader

            That makes the enchantments rather efficient in a way. They don't have the variety that other strengthening methods do, but they cost nothing, their effects are broadly applicable and you can easily remove them to add something else. You just have to be able to estimate how much a given item can hold, and you can top them up with enchants. Assuming you leveled a trash sense, of course. :p

          Look at it this way. If Krytyk didn't suddenly have things pop up in real to keep him busy, then this would have gotten translated faster. But it would also have meant waiting an extra month for the next volume to be released. Because this took longer to be translated, we now have to wait less to read the next volume.
