A Trading Company Employee Isekai Survival ~I’m Definitely Not Interacting With Other People~ Chapter 42

Chapter 42

ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

The next morning, I went about my daily routine which was taking care of the chickens and the horse. Then I went to practice marksmanship. 

I made a rolled omelet with herb chicken eggs and ate it together with rye bread and fruit juice. As for Ash, I gave him some dried deer meat, bread and water. He looked very happy as he ate it. 

And then, I decided to take care of my one pending issue, which was the thunder attribute sword I had created yesterday,  wolverine thunder sword.

Putting this in the same sheath I had used for the fire sword was dangerous because the sheath would end up getting electrified. So, I wrapped the sheath with insulating tape that I had in my shed.

And thus, the electrification problem was solved. I could carry this sword anywhere without any problem.

Soon, it was about time for me to start making  fire attribute weapons like dagger or shortsword to sell to Margo but I could just sell other kinds of weapons just fine.  

I started thinking about creating something else. Maybe I should try experimenting with water and petrification attributes next. Maybe I could also make material to grant the petrification attribute by mixing femto stone powder with cockatrice’s eyes powder. 

Also, I needed to take the mechanism of skill level into consideration. When my blacksmith level was still too low, I could only grant fire attributes to weapons made from inferior iron. However, now that my blacksmith level had increased, I could enchant weapons made from pig iron and even precious iron.

Given that there wasn’t any other explanation, the increase in level must be the reason why I could do that now.

I guess the same could be said about the alchemy skill too. I could make a higher level concoction now.

About the powder that I had created yesterday, the one that could grant a thunder attribute, maybe if my skill level was too low, I wouldn’t be able to create it. 

It was a new discovery. It turned out mixing fire and water attributes together could create thunder attributes. 

Maybe I should show this new sword to Margo and ask him if he had any other enchantment suggestions. First thing first, I needed to know how much this weapon was worth.

 ◇◇◇

Meanwhile, Margo and Sarasa had arrived at my house. First, Sarasa. She came to deliver the finished ash wolf’s mantle to me. I paid 11 gold coins for the processing cost.

The mantle was gray with blackish hue and white spot patterns. It looked very cool. 

Though… I was anxious to know Ash’s reaction about this mantle…

Ash didn’t seem bothered. He was busy chewing on bull’s bone like usual. I guess that meant there was no problem with this mantle. 

Now then, it’s time to get back to work. 

I brought my ash wolf’s mantle and cleaning brush into the blacksmith workshop. I crushed the merman’s scale and femto stone and mixed the powder together. 

I smeared the brush with the powder and used it to brush the mantle. Still, this mantle was really useful and cool. It also came with a hood. 

SWUSH SWUSH SWUSH SWUSH

I must’ve already brushed this mantle for at least 20 minutes. The fur on the mantle started to glow slightly before it started to settle down.

I appraised the mantle.

【Ash Wolf’s Mantle (Fire Resistance+): Mantle made from ash wolf’s skin. Has the attribute of water and is resistant to fire attack.】

So far, I had never encountered any monster that could let out fire attack but it was better to have a resistance for it rather than not. 

This experiment meant that I could grant water attribute to other equipment too. For example, shields. It might be a good idea to grant water attribute to shields.

T/N: I guess the author forgot to write that Sarasa and Margo came back home after MC received and paid for the mantle?
