39 Episode 39 Storage

 It is June, about five months time has passed. Allen was on top of a large barrel during the change from spring to summer. Under his feet was the family's laundry.

(Oh! (Finally, the summoning level has been raised.)

 Allen, whose morning routine consists of working in the fields and doing laundry, chewed with joy as he washed his clothes. It took him over a year to raise his summoning level to 4.

 On the cover of the grimoire is a happy yellow letter.

Your enhancement skill experience is now 100,000/100,000. Your enhancement level is at 4. Your summoning level is now 4. The grimoire extension has been upgraded to level 3. Storage skill acquired'.

(Also, there's a lot of information about when the level is raised. For now, check the status and)

 First, check the status and see what has changed.

(Looks like the storage skills have been added. Hmm? What? Storage skills don't have numbers. Does that mean the ability is fixed? (And it's not even in the skills experience column)

 The first thing you'll notice is the newly acquired storage skill. It seems to be a skill without a skill level.

 Further analysis continues as I hang the laundry out in the yard.

(We'll see how the storage skill works now, but oh well! After all, the level of the summoning skill has been increased and an E-ranked summoner has been released. It's at 【-】 again. (You have to summon it to find out this)

 I think the process of searching for the summons will begin again through synthesis. This time the magic power is much higher than the last time when it was an F-ranked summoner, so I should be able to find it quickly and easily.

(But still, that's Hell Mode...) When was the last time I leveled up?

 Find out when the last time I was summoned to level 3. It seems to have taken a year and ten months. It gets harder and harder to raise the summoning level each time you go up in rank. That's Hellmode.

1 year and 00 months old and got a grimoire, summon level 1, summon level H.
1 year and 10 months old, summon level 2, acquisition of synthesis skills
3 years and 00 months old, Summoner G rank
5 years and 11 months old, summon level 3, enhanced skill acquisition, summons F
-7 years, 09 months Summons level 4, storage skill acquisition, summoned animal E

 Note in the grimoire notes to add that the summon reaches level 4.

(And that the expansion level is now 3.)

 Check the holder that holds the grimoire summoner cards.

(Oh! (It's designed to store 40 cards!

 The summoner's blessing is increased by the number of cards. You now have a blessing of 10 cards, from 30 to 40.
 The blessings increase from +1 to +2 to +5. With an E-ranked summoner, we can expect an even bigger blessing. If you have 40 of these E-ranked summons, you can expect a significant increase in status.

(Woo-hoo! Can you beat my dad in arm-wrestling? Just in time for the boa hunt. I wonder when we'll try. (Let's just say the day before the hunt.

 I'm thinking of October for my revenge for arm-wrestling with Rodin.

(Now we just need to verify the storage and E rank summons. Which one should I verify? (Will we check out the newly acquired storage skills?)

 Now that all the laundry is finished drying, test your storage skills.


 I don't know how to do it, so I'll just remind you. Since grimoires are pretty much linked to thoughts, they basically respond when you mention a skill name.

 The grimoire opens. It's a page that usually doesn't open.

Hmm? There's a dent in it. (What?)

 In the center of the grimoire spread is a 30-centimeter long and wide depression. What Allen finds strange is the depth of the indentation. It's obvious that the indentation is even thicker than the grimoire, but you can't see what's on the other side.

(I see, what do they put in here?)

 Think about what to put in. I'm just going to put in the branch that fell to the ground. Fearfully, I'll put it in. In fact, it may be an alien space that swallows everything.

 The branch goes in without resistance.


 Try to pull it out. The part you swallowed normally comes out.

 Put a rock the size of a baseball. It goes in. It'll fit perfectly into the chamber.

(I'm a little scared, but I'll try my hand at it.)

 Put your hand in and try to grab a stone.

(Oh! Image. (This will give you an idea of what's inside)

 Plunge your hand in and images, both visual and list-like, come into Allen's mind.

List-like image
1 piece of rock

 Then check how much goes in, and if it's long enough.

10 pieces of rock
Trees over 1 meter (grass F aroma)
20 days worth of firewood (300 kilograms)

(What's this? (Doesn't that go into infinity?

 The results of the test were outrageous. It seems that anything that can fit into a recess of 30 centimeters square can be put in. So far, it does not seem to have been overfilled and thus it does not seem to disappear.

 You are astonished as you put back the firewood that you put in too much for verification.

Aren't you hungry?

 I guess I was too enthusiastic about validation. It's almost noon. Teresa, in the dirt floor, calls out to me.

Yes, Mother.

(Funny . I mean, it's funny, this is unnatural or inexplicable. (Why now?)

 The results are strange. I'm not sure what to make of it.

 Allen played a lot of games when he was Kenichi. That's more than 20 years. How many items you can have is one of the most important factors in playing the game.

 For example, some games have a fixed limit of 10 or 20 items, and if you exceed this limit, you must take them to the storage facility.
 In some games, each item has a weight, and you can only carry it up to a certain weight. Moreover, the maximum weight is dependent on your profession and level.
 In some games, you're given a huge bag at the beginning of the game that can hold an infinite number of items.

 Allen's question is why did we get such a god-performing skill at this halfway point? I'll understand if you were a year old when you got the grimoire. I'd understand if I didn't get the grimoire.

 That's the fourth time I've come up with this HGF and E. It's a skill that allows you to put in an infinite number of items when you're halfway there.

 I guess I was too enthusiastic, but Teresia is calling me again. I have to help make lunch, so I hurriedly return to the dining room. My thoughts accelerate as I cook lunch.

 In the game, important items were available to you when you needed them. A key, a flying carpet, a ship, and so on, because you couldn't conquer the game without them. You get what you need, when you need it. That's because the creators would lead you to play it that way.

There's a reason for this. It had to be now.)

 Allen is convinced. Because the creator of this skill set is the creator god of this other world.
