“Every person has an equal amount of 8 skill holder slots. There are normal skills such as 【Physical Strength】 which takes up 1 slot, but there are also rare skills which take up 4 to 5 slots, or even rarer ones which take up all 8 slots.”

Is what old man Hinga taught me at the Orb Mine, where skill orbs are unearthed.

But we “slaves” could not acquire skills due to Contract Magic, thus slaves had no future.

On one fateful day.

The noble who owned the mine, that is, our “Master”, came to visit the Orb Mine.

Due to a sudden earthquake, the ceiling collapsed. Rocks fell directly on the noble’s head. And he died.

At that moment, our contract magic disappeared.

The clever slaves ran straight to the warehouse where the skill orbs were stored.

They absorbed rare skill orbs, and used their newfound abilities and magic to defeat the guards and escaped the mine.

It was a riot.

I was too late to pick up a skill orb.

“–It’s over. I will be forced back into being a slave,” I despaired.

But just then, I saw a skill orb that shouldn’t exist.

An orb which used 10 skill holder slots -【All Things In Creation 《World Ruler》】

A non-standard skill orb that would be of no interest to anyone but researchers because no soul in the world could use it.

However, I was able to absorb 【World Ruler】.

Why? That’s because I was a “reincarnated person.”

I had 8 more skill holder slots than an average person, for a total of 16 slots.

The mine is besieged and there is only one exit. A mysterious skill 【World Ruler】 in my hand.

What do I do now?

Light Novel Illustrations
Volume 1


  1. I’m anxious for the Volume 2 Illustrations..

  2. I believe that is a cool novel. Cause the plot is nice.
    But well, not great. Names like Daniel are highly related to christianity… and this between other details are kind of non-sense to be in another world. Japanese names, same thing. Diferent cultures, diferent world, diferent names.
    Lacks creativity, emotion and philosophy (is a completly descritive work, no thought or message as background. As example omnicient reader viewpoint is great at it, before you say that “there is no such thing at novels”).
    The autor obcession with meat is strange and out of point. And you don’t die if you do not eat meat also.
    All the parts related to body reactions and behaviors lacks research by the way.
    One more involutary celibatary and shy japanese man with a vulgar fixation to big boobs I also may say. What is pretty annoyng already.
    The autor also have a highly introspective personality and translate it to the characters in excession. Are all reservaded with a fixation to secrets or to keep intentions, feelings or informations to themselves therefore, their personalities blend being safe to say (as a example) that there is no straightforward person (excluding extras) in the story. Therefore, the comunication between them is weak and lacking gived the time that they spend together (days alone walking surounded by silent nature). Lacks even a justification to this blank spaces of time. The autor didnt included it… Cause he is used to silence. A shy guy, as you may expect. And as he made it so personal, the personages became liveless and empty of personality, dolls to a ego-trip. A bad autor and writer. But the plot is nice.

  3. This is the same franchise as rule breaker right?i saw it at nu

    • It is from the same author, but im not sure if it is set in the same universe. But there are similar elements such as the protag is the only one with black hair and black eyes in the world and so on.

  4. Are there any illustrations for Vol 3? I really want to see what Anastasia looks like.

  5. Btw. The overpowered protagonist tag was removed on novelupdates. Might want that put back since the tag is still here.
