I arrived at the shed along with Ash. I put Rocinante back into his stable and filled his water and food trough.
Ash was already laying curled up on my futon in the shed. Probably he was tired from being too excited since it was his first time visiting the town.
After having a decent meal, I went to the blacksmith workshop together with Ash.
First, what was the meaning of a ‘water attribute’ in this merman’s scale description? Usually in RPGs, this was a term used to give fire resistance or something like that.
For the time being, I decided to put the investigation of this item on hold. I turned the scale into fine powder and stored them in the storage area for later.
Next, I melted the precious iron I had bought before together with the ash wolf’s fang and coal. I hammered this bright red metal in order to make a shortsword.
CLANK CLANK CLANK JWISHHH
I attached the blade with a handle and the shortsword was finished. I appraised the finished product.
【Wolverine Sword: A sword made from wolf iron. The hardness of the precious iron is enhanced.】
Apparently the ash wolf’s fang had the effect of strengthening the hardness of a metal by one level. Then, I remembered.
I remembered the time when I was able to give fire attributes to a weapon by mixing the abrasive with fire attribute material. Then maybe the petrification attribute from the cockatrice’s eyes and the water attribute from the merman’s scale also worked in the same way?
Since I had plenty of merman’s scale, I decided to experiment on it first. I mixed the powdered merman’s scale with abrasive and then I gave the end result a lick before I appraised it.
【Water Magic Powder: Effective in granting water attribute.】
For experiment sake, I crushed a fire stone into fine powder and then I mixed the fire stone powder with water monster’s powder. I gave it a lick to see if the experiment worked or not.
Immediately, I felt an electrifying sensation running through my body.
【Thunder Magic Powder: Effective in granting thunder attribute.】
I see. So you will get the thunder attribute if you combine water and fire attributes together.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Alchemy level 3.』
I decided to try to polish this wolverine sword with thunder magic powder.
SHA SHA SHA SHA SHA
After 15 minutes of polishing, the wolverine sword finally began to glow in yellow and started letting out small sparks. I appraised the sword.
【Wolverine Thunder Sword: A sword made from wolf iron with thunder attributes. The hardness of the precious iron is enhanced. 】
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Blacksmith level 4.
I tested the finished sword on wood and there was an electric discharge on the cut before it started to burn. The sharpness was several times better than the pig iron sword I had been using. And so, I decided to make this wolverine thunder sword as my main weapon.
I drank a little bit of ale before I slept together with Ash.
T/N: Ah I just love how Ash and MC is always together ❤ (ɔˆз(ˆ⌣ˆc)
