Chapter 15: Power up!

Finally, it was the day before the [Evening Party] wherein Demon Lords would gather.

Almost a month had passed since Elder Dwarf joined us. During that time we had managed to: mass produce Golems, develop weapons, build up a reserve of metals from the mine, and level up. We had been extremely busy.

Elder Dwarf, Tenko, and I all went into the [Crimson Cavern] while the Golems and Skeletons were assigned to do nothing but mine.


I had a new [Creation] medal in hand. A month had already passed since the last one so I was able to make another.


However, due to the restriction on [Creation], there was nothing I could do with it unless I had an original medal made by another Demon Lord.


“What a sight.”

“As per Master’s instruction, I made as much as I could every day.”


Elder Dwarf, the silver-haired prepubescent beautiful girl, emotionlessly uttered so.

In the backside of the house reserved for us, the Golems were placed.

There were 30 of them.

Five F rank equivalent Stone Golems.

Ten E rank equivalent Iron Golems.

Ten D rank equivalent Silver Golems.

Five C rank equivalent Mithril Golems.


They were balanced like so. No matter how much Mithril we had to make powerful weapons, it wouldn’t be enough for making all the Golems so most of the Golems were instead made of iron and silver. Thus, the Iron Golems and Silver Golems.


“These will make things easier. I’ll equip these guys with heavy weapons and then they’ll be a great addition to my fighting force.”


The Golems had a large build, towering at over 3 meters, and it had the power to match. So, I equipped them with heavy weapons remodeled according to their specifications and done by the Elder Dwarf.


The Browling D2 .50 caliber (custom).

Over-all length: 1560 mm

Weight: 38.0 Kg.

Caliber: 12.7 mm x 99

Belt-fed system; 110 rounds each belt

Rate of fire: 650 rounds per minute

Effective range: 2,000 meters


A historical masterpiece of a machine gun. Eighty years had passed since it was designed and yet it still was one of the most excellent guns. It boasted overwhelming firepower and reliability.


It weighed close to 40 Kg. so I was only able to just barely make it after I had leveled up and increased my MP.

I was only able to do so recently so there was only five of the gun as of yet.


It used a caliber of 12.7 mm so that meant it used a caliber more than twice as large as that of an assault rifle.

The power it possessed was beyond words. Not only would a bullet go right through and leave a hole to any human shot with it, it would turn them into minced meat.

Just imagine these bullets of such ludicrous power was incessantly raining down upon the battlefield.

Originally, the gun was meant to be installed on a vehicle and never was it meant to be carried by foot soldiers. However, the Golems were able to easily make use of such a beast.


“Master. These Golems will be suited for a defensive battle but not an offensive one.”


However, that didn’t mean it didn’t have any weaknesses.

The Golems weren’t monsters created by me so I couldn’t store them away. In other words, the Golems would have to move until their destination point all by themselves. Their movement was by no means fast and that would therefore hinder their offensive. Their movement speed even loses to the Skeletons’.

However, in occasions where a location was to be defended, there was no monster more convenient than them.


“I know. These guys will be our strongest line of defense.”


I was thinking that basically, in my Dungeon, the ones in charge of attack would be the Undead corps while the Golem corps would be in charge of defense.


“Leaving all that aside… How’s Tenko’s weapon? Is it complete already?”

“It’s perfect, the best one I’ve made. I’ve finished it using: my analysis on the construction of the shotgun, the information Master gave me regarding the M&K MK417, my intuition as a dwarf, and Tenko’s demands. It’s my most superb prized item.”


The assault rifle I had prepared for Elder Dwarf was:


M&K MK417 MR762A1

Over-all length: 905 mm.

Weight: 4.25 Kg.

Magazine size: 20 rounds

Caliber: 7.62 mm x 51

Rate of fire: 600 rounds per minute

Effective range: 400 meters


It’s a version of the Skeletons’ MK416 but instead uses 7.62 mm bullets.

The Skeletons would have had a hard time firing anything that used more than the 5.56 mm bullets which had little recoil. Not to mention the need to put importance on the magazine size when it came to the Skeletons; the 5.56 mm bullets were smaller and therefore would allow more bullets on the magazine.

However, the MK 417 and its 7.62 mm bullets would not be an issue for Elder Dwarf, all things considered.



I handed her the high-powered gun in hopes that she might acquire any engineering techniques from it and use it for enhancing Tenko’ shotgun.


“Oto-san, my new shotgun’s really amazing! It so powerful, and it can even rapid-fire; it’s the best! El-chan, thank you!”


Tenko who test fired the gun in a separate location had returned.

She was in a considerably good mood and hugged Elder Dwarf.

Her weapon underwent an extreme power up so of course she was delighted.


“Elder Dwarf. May you please tell me what kind of improvements you have made on the Remilton M870P?”

“Yes, Master. First, due to the properties of the Mithril alloy, the gun was made lightweight while also having an increase in its strength. The strength of the material aside, I have also fully applied dwarven enchantments on it.”


It looked as though dwarves used some kind of magic to enhance materials.

The Mithril used was no ordinary Mithril either. It was a Mithril alloy wherein the Mithril was mixed with various kinds of metal. It resulted in an increase of its strength and viscosity.


“Next, I increased the firepower by changing the shell from a 12 gauge to 4 gauge one. I have also mixed in Mithril powder to the shell’s powder. Mithril powders have the property to store magic power so if Tenko put in some of her magic power, the weapon’s power will further increase. A 4 gauge Mithril shell is about 5 times more powerful than an ordinary 12 gauge shell…… I’ve also added in a feature which will reduce the recoil but only so much that Tenko will be able to handle this beast.”


I was delighted to know that the power of the shells had skyrocketed.

However, not all of it was good news. The shells now employed magic power and I was therefore no longer able to make them using my [Creation].


But Elder dwarf had also made 4 gauge shells which used ordinary powder. These didn’t have any magic power flowing in them so I had them properly memorized so that I could make them using [Creation].


“In addition, using the MK417 as reference, I have implemented a semi-auto mechanism. It makes use of the recoil and loads in the next bullet. Also, it’s now possible to change magazines.”


The Remilton M870P was a pump-action shotgun. Each shell needed to be pumped-in but because of the semi-auto mechanism, the next bullet would now be reloaded into the chamber automatically.

In other words, rapid-fire was possible.


Furthermore, shells were loaded into a Remilton one at a time but thanks to the modifications done so that a magazine was detachable, the user was now able to replenish all the bullets in one go just by changing the magazine.


“It’s amazing. But, isn’t this a size bigger than before?”

“That can’t be helped. We increased the size of the bullet, made it use magazines, and added a semi-auto mechanism. All of which would lead to it getting bigger.”

“I guess. The handling of the gun suffers a tad but, all in all, great modding. You did great, Elder Dwarf.”


I stroked her head.

She might have had an unconcerned face but the edge of her mouth had risen ever so little.

In fact, this child was just as spoiled as Tenko; pleased whenever her head was stroked.


I was the praising type of Demon Lord so whenever there was a chance, I will assert myself by stroking their heads.

What’s amusing about this child was, although she usually referred to me as Master, she would occasionally call me father.Her face would then turn red and sometimes even lose her cool.


Some time ago, Marcho looked at the Demon Lord who was spoiling Tenko and Elder Dwarf, and uttered [Loli] Demon Lord but this was highly vexing. I just wanted nothing but to make the girls happy.


“Tomorrow will at last be the [Evening Party] wherein all the Demon Lords will gather. I’m glad that Tenko’s weapon is ready.”


I whispered so.

Marcho had given me the advice that as much as possible and until the [Evening Party], I should prepare my fighting force.

Actually, I didn’t know anything more than that because it looked like that telling me what would happen on that night was against the rules.


“No matter what happens, Tenko will protect Oto-san!”

“I, too, shall protect Master. My research can’t move forward if Master was gone, after all.”


These two daughters of mine were really motivated.

Tenko was level 33 and Elder Dwarf was level 28.

Going by levels alone, they were in the range of a D rank monster but since they were S rank monsters to begin with, they had the power to rival a B rank monster.

If their weapons and superior special abilities were to be factored in, it could even be argued that they might be able to hold their own against an A rank monster.


“I’ll be relying on you. Also, we have to seriously think about our Dungeon soon. I plan to take your requests into consideration so please think what kind of Dungeon you think is good.”

“Oto-san is going to make his Dungeon?”

“Not yet but soon enough.”

“I’ll be looking forward to it!”


Tenko didn’t feel anxious, instead her eyes sparkled full of hope for the future.


“Master, a mine is essential. You absolutely have to buy one right from the start.”


A dwarf is a dwarf and so, she conveyed to me her foremost wish.

I looked at them and felt a little bit at ease.

I must have looked like a fool to be the only one feeling worried.


“Tenko, Elder Dwarf, we’ll show them our might tomorrow.”

“Yay! ♪”

“We’ll make them realize the power of my weapons.”


Today, we did maintenance on our weapons in preparation for tomorrow, and talked about the Dungeon I would eventually make. We were very excited.

The author, Tsukiyo Rui-sensei, wants to take this opportunity to promote the release of the first volume of her other work, お菓子職人の成り上がり~天才パティシエの領地経営~ (Upstart Pastry Chef ~The territory management of a Genius Pâtissier).

    Damn you telling me that an S rank monster is able to gain 30 levels in a week but after that only 3 levels after almost a month of grind? The balance isn’t quite reassuring


  2. “Oto-san, my new shotgun’s really amazing! It so powerful, and it can even rapid-fire; it’s the best! El-chan, thank you!”

    Just commenting that automatic shotguns have been a thing for a while and never ever ever shoot them without ear protection. You’ll loose your hearing almost immediately. (⊙_⊙)

    So much boring talk of guns, I guess the author really loves their guns.

    The story making silver golems tougher than iron golems. Silvers more expensive in our world because it looks nicer. But it’s a softer metal. Well at least no high rank golems because they were made out of gold.

    If the author needed different ranks of metal all they had to do use use copper. bronze, steel or what not. Lots of other possibilities for sliding scales of metals without needing to do something absurd like make silver stronger than iron.


    • While that is true, this is fiction. The author can come up with whatever reason they want. For example, maybe silver and gold are more conductive to magic than other metals like iron or copper, making them the overall better material.


  5. Thanks for doing this chapter!😆


  6. Why are most of the gun named wrong?


  7. Maybe in the future golem using bofors 40mm in the future


  8. Thanks for the chapter.


  9. They were balanced like so. No matter how much Mithril we had to make powerful weapons, it wouldn’t be enough for making all the Golems so most of the Golems were instead made of iron and silver. Thus, the Iron Golems and Silver Golems.

    Why he didn’t just summon some strong alloy or metal of some sort from the modern world is beyond me.

    What’s amusing about this child was, although she usually referred to me as Master, she would occasionally call me father.Her face would then turn red and sometimes even lose her cool.

    I’m going to get really sad if they continue to think of him as nothing but a father and master. It does seem that they love him to some extent, but I want them to feel pure feelings of love for the other sex and not as a family member or master. I also hope there will be some bed action. I would question the authors sanity if he doesn’t make something like that happen.


    • truepurple0 said:

      There is a bigger issue than him not simply summoning the material (which isn’t all that big of an issue considering he can only summon so much per day) That silver golems were tougher than iron golems. Silvers more expensive in our world because it looks nicer. But it’s a softer metal. Well at least no high rank golems because they were made out of gold.

      I think the author is a girl so it really calls everything into question vis a vis daddy issues.

      Also Japanese protags never get any, why would this be any different lol he might as well not have working genitalia.


  10. There is actually another interisting question:

    Ehat happens to the monsters if the demon lord is killed bevore he makes a dungeon core?

  11. surprised the assult rifles didnt already have a semi auto mode and that he didnt add the finger print scanner to the guns or computer. wonder if he gains xp from his monster/ party kills and how often he makes bullets


  12. thanks


  13. Loli Demon Lord forever!

    A Saiga-type shotgun?


  15. Pretty much error on the translator side, nonetheless, the actual name of the golem weapon in Browning M2HB( or Browning M2 in short), and Tenko’ shotgun is the Remington M870P. There are various error need to be corect in the translator’s database, so unless reader(s) know quite a few about firearms, otherwise new reader(s) will be mistaken and misleading.
    Anyway, thanks 4 the updates.


    • Mclaindog said:

      There like that on purpose to avoid copyright by the author deal with it. Don’t blame the translator for things the author arbitrary decided to do.


  16. Sooo it is Elder Dwarf or Elf Dwarf?


  17. The calibre might be 12,7mm, but for the M2, it’s more often just considered a .50 Cal , because it’s ½ of an inch, but they still prefer that .50 cal for some reason. Russian HMGs however go with the 12,7mm from the get-go.

    Also, assault rifles usually are between 5mm, 5.56mm or 7,62mm (those 3 are the most common ones), so 12,7 wouldn’t be a natural over the double of any other assault rifle.


  18. I expected bazookas for the golems .

  21. Love the series. Thank you for the chapter.


  22. I’m a little disappointed at the reality of this novel. I mean, he could probably create giant machines, incorporate magic into them while using modern technology, with El-chan as both soft and hard-ware developer. Can I get a SPACE CIVILISATION and biological machines to increase lifespan?

    Other than that, nukes, or at least explosive metals from the left side of the periodic table. Howizters and other long range explosives. Add magic.

    I want a flying aircraftcarier. The Mc plans one as a place for El-chan to chill out in, she then redesigns it to fly. Would be cool.

    The only real thing I’d want to know is if he could connect to his previous world. Knowledge is power, and portals are one of the most world-endangering things 😀


    • a flying dungeon probably can be done but i fail to see the purpose rather than being awesome. He hasn’t made any howitzers as they are a bit hard to use while indoors…

      Liked by 1 person

      • I think that the biggest constraints on these are the weight. MC was just barely able to make something weighing 40kg. Even if he makes a howitzer part by part, it will take some time.


      • Purpose? Just a present to a certain overachieving shortstack.

        It’s basically, that there are so many possibilities, like wish fulfillment, which would basically mess the story up BUT are still pretty great to think about.

        So, he gives her it as a present, she mods it out.

        For the long range weapons. He’s going to have a base. Why not add weapons that can target the other side of the planet? Or at least a few dozen miles out.

        I can just imagine him making a city with automated futuristic things, he’s like a humanoid replicator, the possibilities are endless. I can imagine a plane-golem. Imagine. Realistic Magic Autobot.


  23. What kind of medal will he get later? Whichever it is I bet the result will be another loli (•̀ᴗ•́)و
    He has the power to turn every monster into loli, coz he is the [loli] demon lord (LOL)
    Thank you for the chapter!!


  24. Thanks for the chapter


  25. cant wait for vehicles and grenade launchers to get in just imagine mixing it with magic

        Thats weird most in most cases using the name of a gun(which is trademarked not copyrighted) in a book is fine as long as you don’t have images or do an in depth description. Stuff like movies and video games require a bit more licensing(aka asking nicely they most likely say yes or very very very less likely pay you depending on certain factors) because they show the actual gun.

      • Well, the guns are described in detail in the novel.

        All the syosetu web novels do it for everything, regardless of whether they think they’ll be sued for it. If it’s a brand name of something somewhere, change it just slightly so people know what it’s meant to be but still different, or bleep out some of the letters.
        I think it started with writers who weren’t sure whether it would be alright to use it or not, so just decided not to take any chances and did it with everything. And since then it’s become standard practise for japanese light/web novels, almost becoming something you do just because everyone else does.


      • That kind of explains why google had to fix the stuff i copied and pasted into their search engine LMAO


      • The Quartz 19, a standard pistol with a striking Resemblance to the also standard Glock 19. How strange.
