Chapter 130: That was just a slope, and I didn’t even break a sweat!

“Hahaha…so this is the power of Luke-sama’s Gift…My, all I can do is laugh…no wonder the city in the wasteland was built within a year’s time…”


Riesen was reborn in a blink of the eye.

All of the buildings in the city, even those in the state of disrepair, looked as though they were built just today. And the many old and bumpy roads even became well-paved and ridiculously easy to traverse for carriages.


“Grandma, look, I’m walking so fast!”

“What are you talking about, grandpa…huh? You are!”

“That was just a slope, and I didn’t even break a sweat!”

“Easy now, grandpa; you might fall down!”


When he saw an elderly, hunched-over man walk like a young lad, Mitchell knew the roads weren’t simply made well; they also had the same effect present in the road that connected Riesen with the wasteland city.


Public lavatories and public bathhouses were also added to the city at various locations. What were unoccupied buildings just a while ago were turned into such useful facilities in an instant.

Soon enough, no one would ever throw their wastes on the streets anymore.

And if people and the city could be clean, the higher the city’s defense against plagues would be.


Even Riesen’s ancient walls and water wells were renewed.

A mysterious contraption was added to each of the water wells, making it so that even children could easily draw water from it. As a bonus, because the wells had lids now, there was no longer a need to worry about people falling down the wells.


“In all honesty, I asked for help simply because why not…but never did I imagine that Luke-sama would do this much for us…and it hasn’t even been a day…!”


Mitchell made his appeal yesterday in the wasteland city, and by noon of today, this much work was done in the city.

He was already in awe by all this, yet…


“Let’s see, I guess I should work on the fields next.”


Upon hearing of Luke’s intention on continuing on and improving the fields, Mitchell unintentionally muttered something out loud.


“If Marquis Albert knew of this power…I can’t imagine he’d ever let go of it…”


   ◇ ◇ ◇


After remaking the buildings within the city of Riesen, I proceeded to improve, through Facility Upgrade, the fields around the city.


“Let’s see…faster crop growth, better crop quality, and improved work efficiency in the fields…also pesticide effects…”


The fields here might not yet be as good as the fields in the village which have been improved multiple times, but at least now, these fields could produce more crops. It should be easier to work here too.


“Grandma, look, I’m working so fast!”

“What are you talking about, grandpa…huh? You are!”

“I’m doing field work, and I’m not even breaking a sweat!”

“Easy now, grandpa; you might fall down!”


Hmm, the old couple there seem to be pleased, at least. Farming’s hard work, after all, and any help matters.


“Mitchell-san, I think we’re done here.”

“Oh, t-thank you for your hard work. Thanks to that, this city’s become so pleasant to live in! I honestly don’t know how to properly thank you.”

“Don’t worry about it. Besides, we still have more work to do.”




Both of us inclined our heads.


“Aren’t we going to work on the whole North?”

“R-really!? I-I mean, I did say that the whole North will join your city, but I thought you were going to improve only Riesen…a-are you really going to improve the whole North?”

“That’s my intention, yes.”


I planned on doing the same things I have done in Riesen to all the major cities and settlement in the North.


“Really!? I’m very thankful, naturally, but improving all of the cities is going to take a lot of time and effort…ah, but then again, you did do this much to Riesen, the largest city in the North, in just a day…then, I guess I should officially ask it…if you don’t mind, Luke-sama, will you also improve the other cities?”

“I don’t mind at all.”


Afterwards, I improved the roads that led to the other major cities and even built new ones when applicable. And then, upon reaching a city, I would do the same things I did for Riesen. Of course, I also added the residents as my villagers each time.

The result was that I was able to breach to 30,000-villagers mark in an instant.


<< Ta-ta-ta-dah! Congratulations! Because you now have more than 30,000 villagers, your village has become level 9!>>
