Chapter 86: Considerate Slave

 


「The production of the self-destruct switches aren’t enough.」

Yuria said to me in my office.

「Self-destruct switch?」
「Yes, check your DORECA.」

I took it out and checked my menu.

Just like she said I soon found it.

I looked at the image of what it was.

It was the box with a skull marked button on it.

「Ah, the thing that Nina developed?」

A tool that could almost instantly make a large building disappear.

I’m not sure if you can call that self-destructing…

but, I understood what she was saying.

「So production is lacking?」

Yuria nodded.

「By how much?」
「About this much.」

She said and drew on the blackboard.

——————————
Clothes ■■■□□
Food ■■■■□
Shelter ■■□□□
Self-D ■■■■■■■■■■
——————————-
It was extremely clear how insufficient it was!

It had broken past the five marks standard and directly doubled.

「It seems there’s not nearly enough.」
「Since there’s a need for one per household.」
「……..hmm, that’s true.」

I didn’t like that it was called a self-destruction switch, but honestly that is what it was.

Since it was a firefighting measure, it would be ideal to have one for each building I made.

That made demand outpace supply by a huge amount.

「And, needed materials are…….eh what is this??」

I was both surprised and dejected.

The materials needed for the switch were pretty horrible.

Scorpion’s tail x1
Elka’s hair x1
Lava Soul x1

「An all-star cast?」

It needed ingredients that were comparatively rare to what we usually use.

They were hard to get and there weren’t many of them.

「I see, so that’s why production can’t catch up.」

I could definitely see the issue.

The DORECA and Slave Cards could not help this problem.

Placing the magic circle and the ingredients in can create things very quickly.

I also have basically infinite magic.

If I’m affectionate to my slaves then it will well up like a fountain.

The bottleneck was the insufficient materials.

「Ok then, I guess I have to go hunting.」

I said and reached out for my sword.

If there aren’t enough then I just need to get more.

It’s been like that since the start and so it shall be forever more.

「That’s unnecessary.」
「Hm? Unnecessary?」
「The elite guards went to subjugate the Raba(lava).」
「Maya and them?」
「Kazan has a lot of scorpions so they are bringing them now.」
「So they normally hunt those things? As expected of those combat fanatics.」
「And the people of Regret said they would go hunt the Elka.」
「So they’re aiming for foreign currency huh….」

I nodded.

Huh? That means….

「There’s nothing left for me to do?」

I was a bit crestfallen.

Well, this may be progress as well.

Since the management of the country is going well, I don’t have to move out for every little thing.

Maybe we’ve entered that stage.

It was both a happy and sad feeling.

「There are things for Master to do as well.」
「Hm? What?」

I didn’t spot anything from the talks we’d just had…was there something?
****************************************
I was on the top floor of my building on the beach.

I looked out the window. From there I could see the view of the sea that had not changed since I’d left.

Actually, it felt more like a place in the southern islands, a vacation spot.

「Master!」
「Onii-chan!」

The door opened and Mira and Lilia entered.

The two of them entered with faces that wanted me to praise them.

「We made a Fount Ilia.」
「We did it just like Onii-chan said. We camouflaged it so it wouldn’t hurt the scenery.」
「Is that so? Good job.」

I praised them and patted their heads.

—Magic has been charged by 8,000—
—Magic has been charged by 10,000—

My job was to be affectionate with the two of them here.

「We don’t have enough magic to make one switch per building.」

Yuria told me.

In fact that was so.

To make a switch for each of the buildings we had created, we would probably need magic equal to all the magic we had used up till now.

Increasing the magic we had was a very important job, a job that only I could do.

So, it was decided that the ones that I would be doting on would be Mira and Lilia.

「It’s their turn.」

Yuria said when I asked the reason.

Risha’s turn had already come and gone, so in her words it was their turn.

The Second slave Mira.
The Fourth slave Lilia.

It was just like her, the third, to ignore herself like that.

However, it was hard to get a magic charge from her. Maybe it was because few things would get a large emotional response from her, but it was more like her to give a huge charge all at once than many small charges often.

In other words it would be a gamble.

It appears she was aware of her own disposition.

Since there was a need for certainty, she passed over herself.

I thought that Yuria was so adorable.
She was so lovable in that moment.

「What’s wrong Master?」
「Do you feel bad somewhere desuno?」

As I was thinking of Yuria I had fallen silent. The two of them peered curiously at my face.

「Mira, Lilia.」
「Yes?」
「What desuno?」
「We will be taking a short vacation here, but first I have an order for you.」
「「Ok」」

They nodded and responded at the same time.

I said to them.

「When we get back, we need to do something to make Yuria happy.」

They were surprised but it slowly changed to happiness.

「It can be a gift, or a tale of our travels. Anything, but it needs to make her happy. Think on it.」
「——ok!」
「I got it desuno!」

—Magic has been charged by 20,000—
—Magic has been charged by 30,000—

「Master’s wonderful, even thinking of his slaves who aren’t here.」
「As expected of Master, he’s the world’s number one Master desuno.」

I heard them say, but honestly I thought it was as expected of them.

The amount of magic charged.

The two of them were more happy for Yuria than they were for themselves.

That was adorable and wonderful.

「You girls are so adorable.」

—Magic has been charged by 5,000—
—Magic has been charged by 5,000—

Ahh, really. They were so cute.

  1. He should think of alternatives to just destroying the buildings… ways to stop fires as well…

    Thanks for the chapter XD

    • I HOPE SHE S THE ONE TO KILL THAT LOSER

      CANHEHAVESEX OR IT WILL GET WIERD

    • Yeah like proper city planning such as a grid of larger roads that can be use for carriages and as a fire break, larger house lots preferably with its own water source and garden so houses are not right next to each other, formation of bucket brigades and fire companies, proper dispersal of parks and public buildings such as clinics and bathhouses to prevent disease, implimentation of farm land around the cities and night soil colection wagons as well as proper gutters and drainage, and this is only the starting point if he wants a self sufficient society that doesn’t require his magic to function from day to day

    • I think creating those switches itself is an incredible dangerous and stupid thing to do!
      Think about it:
      You install self-destruction switches in all buildings.
      Now an enemy appears and is not the idiotic attack-head-on type but instead investigates the city first.
      They find out about those switches, send some spies into the city and have them trigger all the switches.
      “Sayonara, town!”
      Then they simply repeat that in ALL of his towns.

      Those switches after all have no safety or control mechanism to determine when or who is allowed to trigger them.

      And we all know that there is at least one guy out there who will not hesitate to do anything to harm the MC.
      –> That guy who was sent to that world along with the MC but suffered due to his own selfishness and egoism.

      And with such a guy around hiding somewhere the MC really plans on setting up that switch for every house.

      Truly a ‘good’ idea, MC!
      … or better:
      Truly a ‘good’ idea, author!

      • well though it is true, if u compare to the rest of the ‘town’, people would want to steal it rather than destroy it unless there is some idiot aka the other transporter, due to the prosperity and comfortness of the town, one would rather kill or control the residents and steal the place than destroy the buildings, as for the self destruct, it is more of a ‘i rather destroy this than give it to u’ kind of function, so maybe thats y the mc/author gave the function

      • also if u havent forgot, other than the towns managed by the MC, the world is in an apocalyptic state with little to no resources and dangerous beings including humans themselves, so maybe the author work in this direction

  2. This seems so pointless… It would be probably easier and cheaper to design a water source and means to transport it to the burning houses.

    It’s fine if he doesn’t want to dismiss the effort of that inventor girl, but he doesn’t need to go through with production for an inefficient device… I hope they’ll at least be smart enough to self-destruct the building on fire and not the ones next to it…

  3. Thanks for the new chapter!

  4. im more surprised that he cant think of some of the easiest way to stop a fire and use them, like use loads of water or sand/earth
    i mean really use the means we are fighting huge forrest fires and that is only as a last messaure, come on it would be the last thing i would think of, if i should deal with a city fire.

  5. the self-D switches seem like a really bad idea, what with shit-heel still floating around. proper fire prevention stuff is needed dood~

  6. Thanks for the chapter!

  7. Thanks for the treat.

  8. Elf elf elf elf elf elf elf eldwarf

  9. I know everyone else has already said this, but the SDD in every building would be a nightmare if they were accidentally or purposely hit. also, it would be fine if the fire fighting department just had a few of them on hand as a just in case.oh well, if that’s how they want to do things, I won’t complain against the Plot.

    • Yes giving the fire department a limited supply is a much safer and efficient use of the self destruct buttons. It’s also better to control access to self destruct buttons.
      Now he just needs a fire department.
      Thanks for the chapter
      Happy New Year 🎉

  10. Why does everyone thought that it was the MC’s idea to put SD switch? It was that ‘girl who nosebleed everytime’s idea. He just got along with it and didn’t want to say that he expected more than that. I think he thought of using things like firetruck or something like that. It’s the girl who made it which was not what he expected. Go easy on the MC guys! Although he has the responsibility for it since he allowed it so yeah you can where this is going!

    • The girl designed it, but the MC is the one talking about mass-producing it for every househould despite the inefficiency and the high cost of production… If anything, i’m not mad at the MC, but at the author for making him so dumb that he’d actually go through with this idea.

      It’s fine that he didn’t want to disappoint the girl after her work, but he could’ve easily told her to try some other ideas as well, even give her some hints like “a transport that can carry and release water towards the fire”. It’s not like the SD switch is useless either, so he doesn’t have to dismiss her work, it’s just not a tool to fight fires in a city.

  11. Thanks for the Chapter!

  12. Thanks for the chapter!!

  13. just hope that author choose that and not that he couldn’t think of any other solution because that would be sad…

  14. Self-D is an item that breaks the items that mc and his slaves create…, in other words, it isn’t limited only to houses….
    If you want to put it simply, it is an item that is capable to utterly destroy his kingdom, his currency and his Eternal Slave sword and that idiot wants to give this item to every single civilian….
    MC is crazy…..
