No Fatigue 70. Previous Life Cheat Countermeasure

The PDF version of You Think It’s Fine to Just Summon Me to Another World? Eh? is about 80% complete. I will post it as soon as I finished edit it.

Looking back, my translations were horrible… (it’s still horrible though)

Enjoy chapter 70


Since it’s quite important, I gathered everyone in the courtyard.
While waiting for Melby to call everyone out, I made some pot with 【Earth Spirit Magic】 as target practice.

「This is amazing! These can be sold for money! The only thing we need to do is some glaze and bake them!」

Alfred-tousan seem to take some interest in the pots.
Is the process really that simple?

As everyone gathered, I made a wall about 2 meters high and 3 meters wide at the end of the courtyard. Then I made a stand and arrange the pots on them.

「It’s going to make a loud sound, will it bother the neighbors? 」

「I don’t know about the neighbors, but the guards may come if they heard loud noises」

「In that case, can you silence it with 【Wind Magic】?」

Julia-kaasan covered the courtyard with her 【Wind Magic】.
Hee, so this will prevent the sound from leaking… I’ll remember it.

「Jaa, I’ll start」

I hold the handgun and shoot a pot about 10 meters away.
The pot shattered with a loud sound.
Just like before, I shoot the other 2 pots and they shattered as well.

「ーAnd that’s how you use a gun」

When I looked back, everyone was looking at the broken pots in disbelief, all of them are dumbfounded.

「Wait a second, that little gun, how did you make the lead ball fly? I can’t see the ball at all」

(TL: Before you lynch me, that world don’t know anything about gun, of course they don’t know the word bullet)

Moria said that in shock.
Even Moria who had 【Discern】 couldn’t see the bullets. As for me, it was barely visible. Moria’s 【Discern】 is level 3, whilst mine is level 5. I think to be able to see the bullet, you need at least level 4. Maybe level 5 if you’re really careful.

(TL: 【見切り】 maybe discern. Maybe not)

「Moreover, there’s no need to pull it like a bow. Ed shoot it just by pulling the nail-like parts with his fingers. The mechanism is similar to crossbow, but crossbow needs a considerable effort and power to reload it」

Chester-niisan said so.

「Niisan, want a shot?」

「Can I?」

Niisan took the handgun.
He followed my shooting stance and held the gun towards the target pot.
Even though it was also my first time shooting a gun, I think I handled it well.

Almost as the same time as the sound *Don*, the pot shatters with a loud noise.
Chester-niisan slid his aim to the side and continued to shoot the other jar.
As expected from someone with shooting aptitude, his accuracy is amazing.

「This is…… this weapon is dreadful…」

Niisan looked at the rising smoke and muttered with a scary face.

「Does the snipers Ed was talking about use this weapon?」

「No, snipers use a more precise gun. This handgun can’t shoot far enough」

「I agree, this weapon’s range is not long enough… It will be more applicable if the range is about 5 times more」

Although it’s not detailed, 50 meters is the effective range.
Chester-niisan had figured out the range of the gun on the first look.

「Sniper seems to be able to shoot accurately from 200 meters away.
Niisan has good eyes so you should be able to do that」

It would be wonderful if I had one these on Ranzrack Fortress.
You should be able to snipe Goleth, the leader of 〈Black Wolf Fang〉,  from the top of the Fortress without problem.

However, since there were HP in this world, it may be difficult to shoot Goleth down in 1 blow. Even so, Goleth won’t be able to load his spears and it will make the battle into a one-sided-massacre.

While I was thinking, Alfred-tousan took the gun from Chester-niisan and tried it.
Dad who was not good with bows had shot 1 of the 2 pots provided, but he seemed to understand the convenience of the gun.
Dad said.

「This is a terrifying weapon. It will be effective against demons, but it will be brutal against human enemies. If the enemy had something like this… I can understand why Ed is so cautious. So what are you going to do, Ed? Should we just mass produce this weapon to counter them?」

「In the worst case, that will be our only plan. But to prevent that scenario, we can monitor the material distribution for the guns and the ammunitions. I would like to build a position to investigate any abnormalities in the distribution immediately」

「That Kizaki person, is it possible that he was reincarnated in Santamana?」

「Un… That’s why, I need an information network that covers at least the major cities in the whole continent. Either way, if we try to mass produce guns, we need a lot of economic and industrial strength, so I think we need to watch over the big cities」

「Even so, assuming mass production is impossible, is it possible that the reincarnator arms his closest aides?」

「Regarding that, he needs to have some previous life’s knowledge about gun-fight」

「Can we use Chester’s troop as an experiment?」

「I see, so niisan will be the first one? ……Sorry niisan. You are involved in weird things」

「Iya, I don’t mind. In fact, I’d rather be informed in this matter since it’s important」

「Anyway niisan, I want to make a special unit armed with guns, can you gather some trustworthy prople and fit for shooting? This is to oppose the enemies forces and to identify the problems and weakness in managing guns. There are magic, skills, and statuses in this world. Depending on the creativity, there are also a possibility where we can compete with the past generations of weapons」

Suddenly, Mom asked.

「Wait a minute, Edgar-kun.
That means in the previous life you never had magic, skills, and statuses?」

「Un. I don’t have those.
It seems that this world’s Good Gods developed this system to counter Evil Gods」

「Eeee…… i see」

Julia-kaasan was surprised and impressed.
For the people in this world magic, skills and statuses are normal and natural, they can’t imagine a world without those things.

「That’s why, I think magic is important.
We can’t knock a high-speed bullet with wind like arrows but we can make thick walls, evaporate the bullets in high-temperature flame, or slow it down with water barrier. There are a lot of things to counter guns」

「Un…… The solutions you provided… it’s going to exhaust a lot of MP」

Julia-kaasan thought with a troubled face.

「How about we dig trenches as protection for simple countermeasure?」

「Oh, I was thinking about teaching that to the knights」

「Originally, trenches are born in a battlefield that uses guns, so it’s doable」

「I see. So as countermeasure against guns, we can use magic warfare strategy」

「Dad, regarding the manufacture of guns, can you introduce me a trustworthy and skilled craftsman?」

「A craftsman eh… I have a few acquaintances in the royal city.
However, he only stay only when he need to report to His Majesty, the King. So it may be difficult to get his help in a long term」

「Still, I want to know the metal processing technology in this world. It may be different from my world」

Because there’s magic, I think that technology of this world is not that low. If you are doing metallurgy with magic and skill, it should be more convenient. Just like alchemy, processing metal directly should be convenient.

「I understand, I’ll introduce you then.
ーBut it’s been a long time since I contact him」

Alfred-tousan averted his gaze to Beck who was sitting on the bench in the courtyard.

「Ed, is there anything else you want to ask?」

「Oh, only one thing.
etto…… I want to make Steph stronger」

「fue? me?」

Hearing her name called suddenly, Steph jumped from her seat.
………Guessing from her reaction, it seemed that she can’t follow the story so far.

「Yup. I am interested in how far a person without a skill in battle would fare in war」

When I said that, tousan had a troubled face.

「Wait a minute, Ed. Steph is Popurus-san’s daughter. Isn’t making her fight will be a problem?」

「But, is it bad to learn to protect yourself?」

「That… that’s true」

「Actually, when this mansion was attacked by 〈Yatagarasu〉, Gazaine took Steph as a hostage. Now that she were close with me, it may be dangerous for her in the future」

「I see… But if it’s too dangerous for Steph, shouldn’t we find a former adventurer to serve as a maid?」

Well… I didn’t anticipate that argument.
Having a former adventurer as a maid will be convenient.
While recalling what happened before, I prepared a counterargument.

「…Imagine something similar happened again. A top assassin like Gazaine as your opponent. Therefore, we need to raise her. Taking advantage from my experiences, I want to research how to raise inexperienced people to protect themselves. Of course, I will protect Steph」

After hearing my words, Alfred-tousan considered the situation.
Then he went to Steph.

「Steph-san. What do you think? There may be danger if you keep being around Ed. Even if you are not working with Ed, I’ll make sure that nothing bad will happen to you.
Please think about it. Will you strengthen yourself by training with Ed, or will you resign to avoid danger?」

「I………」

Steph kept her eyes close and started to think.
Dad looking at her,

「You don’t have to decide it right away. Take your tiー」

「No, it’s fine」

Blocking dad’s words, Steph moves forward.
Steph kneeled in front of me and looked straight into my eyes.

「Ed-bochama, please help me grow stronger」

Steph is so serious that I was almost drop my shoulders.
I thought this was a refusal.

「Though I do nothing but fumble and am always causing trouble, bocchama never got mad at me. Even when he fell down the stairs at the mansion in Corvette Village, while he should have been in pain himself, he used magic to save me who came falling afterwards. On top of that, he even protected me when I was being scolded by Julia-okusama」(TL: Thank you, Jorgelotr)

So that happened.
When I thought about it, everytime Steph made a mistake, I always protected her. I don’t know who was the master in this relationship.

「Lately, when I’m free, he even teach me various things. My master, thanks to Ed-bochama, I am able to do not only addition and substraction, but also multipication and division. Furthermore, I can count numbers correctly even only for small digit numbers」(TL: thank you, Karma)

「I see…… Then, you can help Populus-san. Populus-san has decided to help doing my business. When his daughter comes to help, Populus-san would be happy」

Populus is the village chief of Trenadette and Steph’s father.
I heard that he was chosen as the chief thanks to his ability as a peddler.

However, when you get used to the village life, you seem to miss the business world. This time, he got some investment from Dad.
In fact, I’m also bite one or two pieces of the shop, but it’s a story for later time.

「No, Master. I will not come to help father. Ed-bochama」

「…yes?」

「I wish to study under Ed-bochama, I wish to know the pleasure of learning for the first time. It’s just been a while, but I enjoyed every bit of it. Studying, working, failing, there are so many things that I didn’t know and I’m glad to be able to do so. I have never had anything that I can do. Therefore, if you tell me to learn how to fight, then I will do so.
I want to be strong so I can stand next to this boy. That’s why…… etto…」

Steph was troubled with word and flustered.
After taking a deep breath, she continued.

「S-so… Please let me work for you…」

Steph put all her feeling in those words.

「…Thank you. Let’s work together, Steph」

I gave her my appreciation…


スナイパーは、200メテル以上離れた地点を正確に撃ち抜くことができるらしいよ。
Sniper seems to be able to shoot accurately from 200 meters away

Snipers’s effective range is about 600-800 meters. The world record is 3.5 km.

No Fatigue 68. Edvice 2

RAW: http://ncode.syosetu.com/n6990ch/69/

New project here! I will translate this together with Kirisaki Shin from Shinku Translations. We will take turns translating this novel unless a truck hit me when I cross the road.

I had finished YTIF ch12 but I can’t post it yet because there’s so many things(?) going on and I’m planning to consult an acquaintance to compare the translation with the RAW.


「Next is Julia-kaasan. What are you going to do, Dad?」

「I will return to the dining room. As a host, I feel bad because there’s only 1 person from our family there」

Then Dad returned to the dining room and called Julia-kaasan in.

「ufufu. I’m looking forward for your advice. This is so fun」

After asking Mom who came and said such thing, I used【Appraisal】on her.

…Did she just became stronger?

「Etto… Did you leveled up?」

「Un. After hunting wyvern, obviously」

That explained her new title 《Wyvern Slayer》.
That’s why her level went up.

「And the adventurer title?」

「It’s because I went back as adventurer to find Edgar-kun」

「Your maximum MP is increased as well」

「I’m doing the secret MP expansion technique that Edgar-kun taught me every night」

When someone have magic related nickname or blessing from a God used up all their MP, they will faint and their maximum MP increased by 1 point.

「What about 【Uninscribed Invocation】?」

「I learned it by mimicking Edgar-kun」

I reached my general skill 【Simultaneous Invocation】counter stop bonus by memorizing them but Mom somehow memorized them directly.

「There is 【Sense Presence】」

「I got it when I tried to find signs of Yatagarasu.
It was a quite desperate attempt」

I wonder what is the counter stop bonus for 【Keen Hearing】.
Elemia got 【Sense Presence】 without 【Keen Hearing】, it seems that Mom can do it as well.
As she said herself, she was desperately looking for me.

I thought about recommending her 【Sense Presence】 and 【Uninscribed Invocation】 but she got it herself.

「What is mom’s aptitude? Iya, I know you are the best with fire element」

「Fire obviously, but I seem to have a high aptitude for light magic」
On the other hand, no aptitude in darkness.
If I have to say, 【Dark Magic】is way more useful than 【Light Magic】.

Currently, 【Light Magic】 can only be used as light source.
But when you are the only one who have that kind of skill, it suddenly became important.
On the other hand, like how Elemia did in firedrake nest, 【Dark Magic】 can be used as a cloak to hide or as a smokescreen.
Water, wind, and light magic are still usable… On the other hand 【Earth Magic】 is only considered to dig a hole.

As a result from hearing my mother on her aptitude other than magic, I can conclude.

S: Fire, Light, Mana Manipulation , Mana Perception
A: Wind, Close Combat (dagger, martial arts, etc)
B: Earth, Bow, Perception
C: Water, Reconnaissance, Sword, Spear
Z: Dark

Right… Now I understand why people called Julia-kaasan a genius.

「Mom, how do you fare in close combat?」

「Not that good. Even if I have the aptitude, my magic teacher told me to stay focused on magic」

「What about 【Dagger Techniques】 that you just learnt?」

「This time I learned it from Moria to fight 〈Yatagarasu〉.
Since I just acquire it I didn’t plan to use it, but I thought it might be necessary in some cases」

Julia-kaasan truly had her own hardship.

「It seems that I have aptitude for pole and claw weapons but there are few people who use it」

I imagined my mother swinging a staff and ripping her foes with claws… yeah right.

「I don’t like swords and spears, they are too delicate for me to handle.
I can use perception system to some extent but not too much.
I was taught 【Stealth Step】by Moria but in the end I can’t remember it at all」

「… In short, you don’t like sneaking, prefer face the enemy directly with gargantuan magic, and use simple weapons to fight when you can’t use magic」

Julia-kaasan muscle-brain way of life suddenly came up.

「So, any advice?」

Oh right…

「Etto, it seems that you already learned【Uninscribed Invocation】 and 【Sense Presence】 on your own.
Since you have the aptitude, learning【Light Magic】would be nice」

「Ee〜 but people make fun of 【Light Magic】and called it 【Lamp Magic】…」

「Well then, look at this.
For example, ∩ Light・∀ Reflect ー《Mirage》」

I showed her light warping spell that Gazaine used.

「Wa, Edgar」

My mother surprised looking at the air 1 step beside me.
My mirror image should be visible at that position by light refraction.

「Human eyes capture information using surrounding light, so if you refract light, you can do something like this. It uses the same principle as this mirage.
Mom told me that you’re not good with reconnaissance but can you do this?」

「I see. So you can use【Light Magic】like this.」

「I think the same mindset can be applied to make offensive magic as well
∩_Light・ル Conset ー《Laser》」

I took a piece of cloth from my pocket and converge light to make a hole in it.
I made a mistake and waved my hand.

「Waa waa, how to do this?」

「I gathered light to create heat. You can do the same thing by collecting sunlight with a lens」

「…. What is renzu?」

Are? It seems that this world didn’t have lens.
Are there any loop or glasses?
I need to record this information in my heart.

「Since gathering light will create heat, I think it’s compatible with 【Fire Magic】.
In fact, when I saw the Fire Drake’s Fire breath, I can see fire spirits and light spirits working together to create a complex compound magic.
Since Mom have high aptitude for fire and light magic, I think she can combine them and create a photothermal wave.
Or rather, would you like to develop it with me?」

「Un! It sounds interesting!」

Julia-kaasan smiled in high spirit.

「Next I want you to learn 【Spirit Magic】 together with Dad and I want you to learn 【Enhancement Magic】 to increase Dad’s attack power」

「【Spirit Magic】 and 【Enhancement Magic】
Both are very rare skills!」

「【Spirit Magic】 will be hard, but I think 【Addition Magic】 should be manageable.
Because I can teach Mom by manipulating mana, I think Mom can get it immediately」

Eventually, Melby and I would like to develop something for the barrier but we haven’t seen any development prospect yet.

「This will be fun~」

I asked my mother who smiled happily to call my brother Chester.

「Yo, Edgarー I’ll be counting on you」

I used 【Appraisal】on my brother Chester without hesitation.

《Appraisal》

Chester-niisan’s status didn’t seem to change much since the last time I used 【Appraisal】on him.

「And your aptitude is?」

「Aptitude? Obviously I’m good with bow, but since I’m an elf it seems that my aptitude for mana perception and perception system are quite high」

From what I hear from him I can conclude the following

S: Bow, Spirit, Perception, Mana Perception
A: Wind, Reconnaissance, Water, Mana Manipulation, Throwing
B: Earth, Light
C: Fire, Spear, Sword, Martial Arts
Z: Dark

I think elves are too blessed.
Iya, other than 【Fire Magic】and 【Martial Arts】, you can’t say that he’s lacking in offensive power.

About magic, I repeated the same thing I told Mom and Dad that other magic element can be used offensively.

「That’s good news. Until now 【Wind Magic】 are used only to strengthen bows.」

Chester-niisan said so while showing his white teeth.
Looking at his elven ikemen act, I asked him something that piqued my interest.

「Isn’t crossbow included in bow category?
But the skills are divided」

「Aa, It’s only in my case. Rather than 『throwing』, I think『aiming』would be more appropriate」

「…. Then I guess you can use guns as well」

「I have never seen a gun before, but it’s probably an ancient shooting artifact, right?
If it’s shooting, I can use it」

「Since niisan have good eyesight and use reconnaissance skill, I think you can be a sniper」

「Sunaipa?」

「A sharpshooter. In my original world, a sniper uses a gun and shoot the enemy from far away」

「…Edgar’s world is a very dangerous world, isn’t it?」

「If I somehow found something like a rifle, I will give it to you」
Maa, the problem is not the gun itself but gathering the ammunition.

「I’m not sure but I think guns are ancient relics that will deteriorate over the years. I’ve heard it’s treated as an overcomplicated trash」

「Was it sulfur, nitrite, and charcoal? I’m not familiar with it so we have to experiment and do a lot of work.
…Ah that’s right. If you’re good at throwing, I’ll give you this」

I took out a fragment of the barrier from leather pouch hung on my waist and hand it to Chester-niisan.

「… What is this?」

「I don’t really know what it is but it’s amazingly sharp.
It’s only useful as throwing weapons in emergency. The corresponding skill is 【Shuriken Techniques】 so I think you should master it if you have some spare time. You also need some aptitude in throwing skills」

「Thanks. There are things that I can’t hit like approaching enemy」

「It’s quite compatible with reconnaissance skills, especially with 【Stealth Step】 and 【Sneak】」

「I see. I didn’t use them much since I was always in a party.
Afterall, bow user doesn’t act much alone」

「Is that so?」

「Certainly. If there’s no one to protect you, your enemy can shrink the distant instantly.
There are so many demons that can’t be taken down by bow alone」

I think it can’t be helped.

「As expected, there’s no other way but increase the bow’s firepower」

「That would be great, but how can I do that?
Using a strong bow that needs a lot of physical strength?」

「I think you can use arrows with【Enhanced Magic】.
I will teach you next time」

I’m planning to teach Chester-niisan 【Magic】 and 【Enhancement Magic】 in the future.

「And I want you to learn 【Spirit Magic】 together with Mom and Dad.
An elf may be able to master it earlier than 2 humans.
Next time, I will hold a course about 【Spirit Magic】 can you adjust your schedule to attend?」

「【Spirit Magic】? It’s a secret of an elf, isn’t it? I never thought that Ed can use it」

After showing 《Mirage》 using 【Light Magic】 and show him that other magic element can be used offensively, I conclude the interview with Chester-niisan.


Edvice = Advice

Talking about a bad pun here…
