Extra chapter thanks to Patrick~ Enjoy!
(293) Request from Koshmar
I chose to read the books I just bought at the fountain in the square until Neete came out of the store.
I first took a look at the list of occupations that could be acquired through examinations.
As expected, there were many that were production jobs.
Apprentice production jobs such as Apprentice Cook and Apprentice Tailor could be acquired through training and examinations.
In the last chapter of the book, there was a list of instructions who live in the Shiraraki Kingdom and its neighboring countries according to their race.
However, the publishing date was Otherworld year 350. It was now Otherworld year 391 so the book was over 40 years old.
I didn’t know the average life expectancy of the inhabitants of this world but probably can’t rely on the names of the instructors.
“Hn? On closer inspection, I see Dwarf and Dark-Elf names as well.”
Among the Dwarves, I only knew Doxco and I didn’t know if he was an instructor or not but his life expectancy is significantly longer than human life expectancy. There’s a high chance that those instructors were still alive.
And Dark-Elf — there was only one.
But I recall hearing that name before.
The girl who has the skill called Manager. She appeared to be younger than me but was actually quite a bit older than me.
Incidentally, according to the book the jobs that can be acquired through tests administered by her were Apprentice Cook, Jeweler and Mushroom Appraiser.
I was a little interested in Apprentice Cook and Jeweler but what was with Mushroom Appraiser?
The Plant Appraisal skill by the Harvester can already appraise mushrooms so I couldn’t tell if it was truly necessary.
Next, I looked into the book on Inheritance Bosses.
The book did not focus only on the Shiraraki Kingdom and its neighboring countries but had information on the Inheritance Bosses in various dungeons.
It didn’t have information on Roo‧Kanga in the secret dungeon of the Cat‧Sith so it didn’t cover all Inheritance bosses either.
Well, there were probably unexplored dungeons as well.
“There was an Inheritance Boss in Florence as well?”
I muttered to myself.
On the 76th floor of the Advanced dungeon, there was a cheetah named Cheater Cheetah. One would be able to acquire the Runner job if they could beat it in a race around the floor.
However, that Cheater Cheetah would cheat by passing through walls using holes that were too small for humans to pass through so it was extremely difficult to win against it.
I see so that’s why it was called the Cheater Cheetah. Was it a coincidence that it became a bad pun?
Or was it the Goddess-sama’s playful naming.
“Dear, I’m done shopping.”
“Ou, good job — that’s an amazing amount.”
She looked like Hotei. (TL: God of contentment, depicted as a pot-bellied monk who carries a large cloth bag on his back)
There were so many bags that even Neete’s face was hidden.
“It’s really heavy. Please store them in your item bag.”
I opened my item bag and kept the items within.
Next, what should we buy … I thought to myself but it seemed that our time for shopping had ended.
“Master, there was a message from Torerul-sama — or to be correct, it is a message from Koshmar-sama — or rather she made a request through Torerul-sama.”
” … Erm, message? Is it truly from them?”
“Yes because we are homunculus made by Torerul-sama. We are able to listen to something simple such as a message even while trying on underwear.”
I didn’t have to know it was while you were trying on underwear.
But a request from Koshmar-sama …
When I came to this world, Koshmar-sama told me to live freely.
If Koshmar-sama is telling me to do something in the form of a request, I would like to take action.
Of course, I would refuse if they were to be criminal requests such as stealing an object or killing somebody.
Although I did misstep and killed a Thief, I don’t intend to become a criminal.
However, if they were to be requests such as to defeat a dragon or tame a griffon which I would normally struggle to do, I intend to accept them.
Koshmar-sama has taken care of me quite a bit. I will happily accept any request if it means I will be able to repay her slightly.
“Erm, she hopes that Dear will return to Jobless.”
I answered so immediately that I surprised myself.
