Fighter hit a level cap!? It's currently level 30. Do I just not have the aptitude or do I need to do something to break the limit. I'll ask everyone about it during dinner.
Even with the Fourth Class liberation, this level cap hurt...
As for weapon skill... Eeeeh. Can I even use this?

For now let's set my main class as Samurai, then Fist Fighter, Monk and Otherworlder. Since I got weapon skills from it and all, surely I have the aptitude for the class. I do, right? I'll keep changing up second and third, trying out other classes. It's a beehive plan of collecting half-baked guns. The last one is for raising my maximum mana. Might as well aim high now that it's gotten this far.
I got Class Skills from Samurai and Genin. They're pretty good stuff methink.
Enhance concentration in extreme situations, enabling one to see all incoming blades and projectiles.
Erase presence to make it harder getting detected. Gives bonus improvements to tracking, stealth and disguise skills.
<TLN: If you're reading this novel at any other site than Sousetsuka .com you might be reading an unedited, uncorrected version of the novel.>
And for weapon skill, I got myself some really problematic one.
Weapon Skill 『Vibration Blade - Silver Light』
Weapon skill said to have been coined by Gouemon, a member of a legendary group of thief from time long gone. Turn blade into a silvery slash that cuts target apart. Being a skill of a thief, it raises item drop rate for reason unknown.
Wonder if this is from the 'cut something worthless' man, or the man in kabuki clothing.
Anyway, it's a weapon skill employed by a criminal, is that alright??
It sounds soo usable too, would be a waste to not use it in public. There's already a precedent with 『Vibration Blade - Destruction』, so this is confounding...
"...Nobu! You okay?"
"Nobu-kun, didcha hurt yourself anywhere!?"
"Milord, please do not push yourself too hard!"
Ah, they thought I was hurt since I fell silent thinking about my weapon skills.
"Aa, I'm fine. I just hurt myself a bit due to too much enthusiasm. Since we're all drenched and all now, let's just hurry and set up camp. I saw something like a cave over there, let's use it."
"Fumu, that is fine. Milord, tonight will be a sermon time for you to reflect on your recklessness."
The girls nodded at Kagura-san's word. Huh? No one's on my side. Tohohon.
Afterward, everyone hurriedly gathered the soul stones from the frogs they beat.
I put Space Camouflage to smoothen the process cuz I don't wanna anymore fight in this state!
We arrived at a bona fide cave. Length until a dead end is about 30 meters. As a precaution to the possibility of enemy spawning, I put up stone walls around the entrance to segregate kitchen, living room and bathroom. Of course each has a gap to let one person pass. The me right now can't create doors unfortunately, but I will make it happen someday. My aim, instant single-family house!
And that me is currently at my wits' end dealing with rice grain.
The dropped one was unexpectedly in husked state. Not that it's a bad thing in itself, what's bad is me who didn't anticipate Mitama wanting to eat it tonight. She made that face when I told her that the rice needed to be cleaned up after getting milled.
Her ears and tail flopped down. I will not stand to see Mitama looking so dejected. And thus here I am now after telling her that it can be done with some time.
At first I planned to ask a craftsman to make a large-scale rice milling machine based on one exhibited in a cultural historical museum I saw in my primary school days, but it seems I can't afford that now.
Which means, I just got to do something with my surplus mana.
I'm using wind magic. I'll try a super low powered version of Wind Storm. The image is that of a rice mill. First, I need to separate the husks. Of course, I'll pick up the fallen husks to be used as fertilizer. I've already collected the rice mould. Gonna experiments with stuff later.
Shuon, shuin shuin shuin
First I'll test out with about 10 grains to prevent it getting blown off. U, mu, this requires quite some mad concentration power. Mix of rice bran and rice husks make for good fertilizer. Rice bran pickle? That's granny's favorite, we're good for now.
"Nobu-kun. I'm gonna take a bath ahead."
Earghh! It pop off, the rice pop and got blown off. Eye, my eyeeeeeeeeeee.
The bursting rice assaulted me. This is the result of losing focus for a bit. Umu, guess it's spinning too fast. Gotta make it slower, calmer... yeah. I'm groping in the dark while hoping to grasp the knack asap.
One hour of trials and errors later. Just as Futsuno-san was done with the bath and Mitama got in, I completed it.
I did it! I made it! This is it, magic revolution!!
Rice milling magic 『Rice Miller』 and rice cleaning magic 『Rice Branner』! No naming sense you say? Yeah I know.
It only takes 30 minutes to turn a whole sack into white rice. The mana poured into it reaches surprising 30,000!! What a wasteful amount. If people from Mage Guild were to hear this, they would fall down in shock for sure. Well, it's a prototype magic after all, I plan to keep revising it.
And! I also have this!!
It's finally time for introduction. I went to Boss-san place to order it right after I ate paella at Donur-san's inn, and now it's time for it to shine.
Behold! This lustrous black lump of iron! The great iron pot-chan is here to stay!!
The wood lid is my creation, yes.
I dump rice and water inside and then let it to soak in for 30 minutes.
Thud, thud, I took out and set up a simple stove, [Magic Soul Stove] along with two Soul Stones. I believe it's the most widespread magic tool for cooking there is. The best item to get for housewives and your house adventurers. And what's more, this 『Magic Soul Stove』 goes for only 980 mani!! Buy it now and get a set of 10 Soul Stones free. Grab your phone now! And please make sure to not call the wrong number in the middle of the night.
Whoops, 30 minutes have passed while I'm playing midnight tv shopping channel.
Well then, let's ignite the 『Magic Soul Stove』.
And now for the side dishes. That said I've decided on our side dishes already, no preparation needed. Our menu today is grilled meat. The charcoal grilled one complete with earthen brazier and wire mesh. I can never forget the taste of cooked white rice wrapped in grilled meat. I still don't have soy sauce, but I've made my special flavoring made from a mix of salt and meat soup from stuff I've made so far. I'll be sure to make soy sauce and miso eventually.
Okay, what to do now that I'm done preparing.
Ah, yeah I need to do additional testing with dimensional storage. Time delay, stop, and acceleration, need those, urgently. Done right, I could show off my specialty like fermentations and stuff.
After repeatedly creating and disposing those spaces, I managed to create an additional space and slightly increased the capacity. Let's do some experiments on that new one.
The opposite of delay. Like, aging... I fetched a flask (made of stone with a cork) with peach juice inside, then apple, and grape. Then I put the three in the experimental space. One year would have elapsed inside in one hour outside if it's a success. Let's see how it goes. I'm really looking forward to it.
Ooh, the pot is looking good.
Bubbling on and on. I ain't gonna stop hitting even with those tears. I mean, don't take off the lid even if the baby cries.
<TLN: Apparently an old idiom about cooking rice?>
It's turning out into splendid silvery white rice!!
