Evil God Average / Evil God Average Jashin Average – 10
Just to make it absolutely clear, I don’t ever recall my hobby changing from ‘trying my best to translate fun things into English’ & ‘reading discussions about these series because I want to see what others think’, to ‘delivering timely and professional service to entitled douchebags, at zero cost!’.
It’s been four days since the slave girl Tena has begun living with me.
Rather than ‘gotten used to’, it might just be that she’s abandoned thinking about the outrageous and abnormal though.
It seems that she helped her mother with the housework in the village, so she can do most chores, and the things I can’t do like the cooking or cleaning I’ve completely left to her.
It’s just that when I pick up a knife to cook the tantou will knock it out of my hand, and when I try to put on an apron the robe will flick it away.
Inidentally, when it comes to laundry, I can’t change my clothing, so she just does her own.
Fortunately, perhaps I should say, it seems that because of the activation of the divine enchantment, although it’s only at first, the clothing seems to undergo a status restoration after a certain amount of time, so filth and tear doesn’t remain.
Tena’s a slave, but right now my only order as her master is “Don’t do anything that’ll put me at a disadvantage”.
She seems to hold an absolute devotion to I who cured her illness and saved her life, so even if I don’t go out of my way to order her, she’ll work eagerly.
While giving a sidelong look and watching her work, I chanted “Status.”.
Title: Child of the Evil God, Dungeon Master
– Mystic Eyes of Wicked Authority (Lv.5)
– Abnormal Status Resistance (Lv.6)
– Item Box (Lv.4)
– Black Clothes of the Evil God
– Scanties of the Succubus
The new “kin column” was added with Tena’s name listed there.
Also, Tena tried chanting “Status.” but she apparently couldn’t see anything.
Tena herself can’t display the menu, and whether it’s because she became my slave, or because of the divine enchantment is unknown, but it seems that her status is treated as part of mine, and I could see her status.
Title: Slave, Disciple of the Evil God
– Darkness Magic (Lv.4)
– Miko Outfit of the Evil God
I decided to accept her “Slave” title as something that couldn’t be helped, and “Disciple of the Evil God” was probably because of the divine enchantment, huh.
It’s unclear now what her mana value was before the divine protection, but it seems that she doesn’t have any knowledge of magic herself, so I can guess that this value came about because of the divine enchantment. ‘In fact, the person herself didn’t realise but she actually had a natural talent for magic’… the chance that it’s something like that isn’t zero, but, well, there’s almost no mistake that it’s because of the divine enchantment. Even her skills; they’re the same system of skills as mine after all.
The “Miko Outfit of the Evil God” is the kantoui modified by the divine enchantment, but the fact that she has nothing else in her equipment doesn’t meant that she wasn’t wearing underwear or shoes, but rather that apparently normal clothing with no defensive properties aren’t counted as equipment. It’s not as if I’ve gone and ordered her to go commando.
Additionally, it seems that the Miko Outfit of the Evil God isn’t particularly cursed, and Tena can change clothing normally… It’s discrimination.
When I called out to Tena who was placing a teacup before me, Tena immediately replied to me. By the way, at first she called me “Goshujinsama [tl: esteemed master]” but I couldn’t calm down so I got her to call me by my name instead. I said that she didn’t need to attach the -sama, but this was apparently where she drew the line, and because she stubbornly resisted, I gave up.
Tena was about to stand behind me in waiting so I told her to make her own share of tea and sit down opposite me. Tena was bewildered about sitting down together and tried to decline, but I had something to talk to her about so I somehow got her to agree. Even though she should have been raised in a village, why is she so skilled in serving others is hopeless mystery.
“Do you want to see your family?”
To the question I suddenly dropped, cutting to the point, perhaps it was unexpected because Tena stiffened up.
As for me, I’d be troubled in various was if she wasn’t here so I’d like to avoid her leaving, but I don’t really mind her returning to her village for a little while, so if she wants it then I intend to let her. We’ll probably be acquainted for a long while after this, so I thought that I should be considerate so that she didn’t built up dissatisfaction.
“It would be a lie if I said that I didn’t.”
“But honestly, I don’t know what kind of face I should make if I meet them. I think my family feels the same way.”
Well, that’s just about right.
The family that sold the girl for money, and the girl who was sold for money; even if it was something they couldn’t help, it’s obvious that it’s complicated.
“Got it. Then if you feel like meeting them after you sort out your feelings, then say so. If it’s a few days, then I don’t mind.”
“T-, Thank you very much!”
Her eyes were teary, but Tena’s smile was really charming.
Now then, since she’s living here, it’s for Tena’s sake as well that strengthening the dungeon is my top priority. Over four days I’ve been slightly modifying the dungeon, and each day I’ve added a floor, so at present it has 9 floors. I have no intention of increasing it endlessly, but because I want a dungeon as impregnable as possible to guarantee our safety, I plan on expanding it to 30 floors.
I don’t want to think about fighting myself, but I’ve left 1 million mana points remaining for emergencies, and each day I spend 2 million points on strengthening the dungeon. 1 million points are used for adding a floor, so that leaves 1 million left for remodelling and reinforcing.
On the first day I spent points on adding rooms to the residential area, and adding furniture. I needed a room for Tena to use as well. It was a residential area with nothing but the bare minimum bed and table, but now, it’s finally got the appearance of a home. At the very least, just by having a bath the lifestyle circumstances are higher than the inns in town though.
On the second day, I established a teleportation circle on each floor.
Additionally, on the floors besides the residential area, I created two teleportation circles; one that goes one-way towards the entrance, and one towards the residential area for non-living things only. The former is for when defeated invaders want to go home, and the latter is especially made to send down loot from fainted intruders.
On the third day, I worked on adding to the monsters that appeared.
Of course, I’ve made sure to forbid the new monsters from killing people as well. Both of them are non-living things, so they’ll obey my orders absolutely.
On the fourth day, I put traps on each floor.
The point was to avoid death, so of course I didn’t put any dangerous traps that would kill people instantly. They were mainly things like bear traps, pitfalls, paralysis gas, sleeping gas, and one-man teleportation circles. Incidentally, the last one is the nastiest. It’s a small sized magic circle so it’s function is limited to the one floor, but it’ll suddenly send only one person in a party somewhere else. If I surround them with monsters once they’re alone, it probably won’t even be a fight.
And with today’s new floor, the dungeon has grown to 10 floors. Since 10 is a nice number, I’ve decided to place a room when you descend from the 9th floor with a boss guarding the entrance to the residential area. Monsters that don’t appear endlessly and need to be brought forth or summoned individually are boss monsters.
Since I had already gone to the trouble, I used the few remaining points to add a throne worthy of him to the boss room.
