(174) Beyond level 99
When I regained consciousness, I felt damp earth below me as well as a dull pain in the back of my head.
When I opened my heavy eyelids, I saw a white space in front of my eyes — I thought I had passed away for an instant but that wasn’t the case.
I was currently inside My World.
And while I was in the process of regaining consciousness, Pionia peered at my face.
“Master, have you awaken?”
I answered her question that was posed without any intonation.
“How long was I asleep?”
“About 249 seconds.”
About 4 minutes — it wasn’t a long duration at all but it was plenty of time for the Leviathan to trample on the island.
“Master, although you’ve just woke up, please assist to release Master Carol.”
Then, I noticed Carol who was beside me with a face of agony.
“Carol, what’s wrong!?”
“Her slave collar is constricting her — Please quickly touch the slave collar and loosen it.”
I hurriedly touched her slave collar.
Upon doing so, her expression immediately eased up.
“What exactly happened —”
“A slave attacked their owner. This kind of punishment is natural.”
” ……… I see.”
I forgot. Carol was a slave. It was absolutely forbidden for her to resist her owner.
Nevertheless, Carol defied me — this was the price of her actions.
“I’ll apply healing magic immediately —”
“Master, please wait. Master’s magical power has not recovered at all. If you used healing magic now — ”
“I know. But although it’s pitiful, I rather lose consciousness than not do anything now.”
So I applied Petit Heal on Carol and grandly collapsed.
I woke up again after another 2 hours.
Carol still had not regained consciousness. It was tough not knowing the situation outside.
Perhaps it was already night time outside.
Just as I was thinking that.
“It’s been a long time, boy.”
Koshmar-sama appeared before my eyes.
I was shocked by her sudden visit but I was also slightly relieved.
“It’s been a long time, Koshmar-sama.”
“Oya, it’s the first time you didn’t call me an Orc the moment you saw me.”
“That’s true … I don’t have the leeway to have such thoughts at the moment.”
“Is that so? … I watched a little of your fight. Sorry, but I can’t exert much power on this present world.”
“It’s all right, Goddesses seem to have their own rules too so I’m not in the position to question you.”
If I spoke my true intention, I would want to ask why did the Goddesses not defeat the female too when they defeated the male Leviathan.
“There were various circumstances regarding that incident too.”
Koshmar-sama said apologetically after reading my thoughts.
“Don’t worry, I brought this upon myself because I was conceited but lacked strength.”
“The Leviathan is dead.”
” … Eh?”
The Leviathan is dead. Those words made me speechless.
“What do you … mean?”
After I finally squeezed out those words, Koshmar-sama explained further.
“Demon Lord Famiris‧Raritei has resurrected and dealt the final blow to the weakened Leviathan. Incidentally, he/she took that automata you were attached to along with him/her.” (TL: The sentence was gender neutral.)
” … I’m glad.”
Instead of getting surprised by the news that Demon Lord Famiris‧Raritei has resurrected, I was more relieved by the knowledge that Sheena was all right.
“Demon Lord Famiris‧Raritei is currently traveling to Port Kobe. Child, I wish that you head there too.”
“All right. The Demon Lord is Haru’s — my companion’s benefactor so I also know that the Demon Lord is not just an evil being. I have to thank the Demon Lord for the incident this time after all and I was originally planning to go to Port Kobe too. Did Koshmar-sama come here for the sake of telling me that?”
“No, there’s another troublesome matter.”
“That’s right, when I reached Lv90, I acquired some strange skill —”
“I am aware of that too — I can’t tell you the specifics at this moment but it is a skill that doesn’t give any problems as long as you don’t use a transfer circle so please go about your daily life without using transfer circles for a while.”
As suspected, it was because of that skill that I was transferred to the island.
“As a preface, the limit we Goddesses placed on all jobs that we configured is set to be Lv99. And only a very limited number of jobs can reach Lv99. For example, the Jobless and Commoner jobs are configured to only reach up to Lv99.”
“I see. Then, my Jobless job would reach counter stop soon.”
“It seems like you have not noticed yet.”
“Child, your Jobless job has reached Lv99.”
” … Eh?”
That’s a lie, did my Jobless job reach counter stop without me noticing?
I checked my jobs.
【Jobless Lv99 Fire Magician Lv60★ Water Magician Lv60★ Wind Magician Lv60★ Earth Magician Lv60★】
It was true, it had reached Lv99. I didn’t notice since I didn’t acquire any skills.
“Have you noticed? That’s the thing. Even though it should be the level limit, your Jobless job did not reach the peak. That is extremely troublesome. What exactly would happen once you reach Lv100? In the first place, will you even be able to reach Lv100? Even I, as a Goddess, do not know the answer — Of course, I do not intend to stop your growth. On my side, it would be better to have information on it after all. However, remember this. Just like the skill you acquired at Lv90, keep in mind that not all the skills you learn are beneficial to you.”
Not all skills are my ally …
“Child, it is still not too late. You can still erase the Jobless job with your Job Change skill. The choice is up to you.”
After saying that, Koshmar-sama began to fade.
“For now, take a good rest..”
She left with those words.
Then, I —
All that remains is 2 to 3 chapters of the tournament and the epilogue before this long arc comes to an end.
Next arc will finally have MC and Miri meet! Hype 😀
Somehow I got the feeling that they will still miss each other even in the next arc.
Nope.. they will meet on the nxt volume for sure.. but it takes many chaps before it could happen..
i certainly hope not…in fact i hope the next chapter is not a cliffhanger…
Will he lose his Jobless skills if he will switch out jobs?
From the other jobs, it seems he won’t, but Jobless is special…
If he won’t lose any skills it’s better he changed jobs to something else, he will still have the rest of his jobs, and the ability to switch between them, but no more dangerous skills!
Isn’t it because of Jobless that he can change his jobs? So the moment he removes it, he can’t change anything for ever.
no, im pretty sure he keeps all his skills, including the onr that unlockes multiple job slots. he just wants to see where jobless takes him.
Sure he may keep the slots but without the Jobless’ skill he cannot change the jobs in those slots.
I think you can use any skill learned from any job as even without having that job equipped, so if he can change jobs because of a skill then it doesn’t matter.
I think he will keep his jobless until it reach a counterstop….or not. I don’t think his jobless has a limit because his jobless is unique, its his trait that he got from previous world. His fate is jobless, but he got so many side-job. Well, i doubt that he will change jobless to other even if the novel is finished.
There’s too little information on why jobless is acting as it does to be able to make an informed choice.
The goods don’t want to talk about who messed with it and it had all good skills until the last one not to mention although I want to believe it’s just because it’s an unusual job but it’s weird how the Xxxx skill just activates by itself while all other skills require conscious effort not to mention it doesn’t show up in the list.
Since when do world systems have bugs that allow for buffer exploits and such?
That is breaking all the rules already established and looks like a too convenient plot device.
Thanks for the update
Thank you for the chapter~
Thanks for the chapter!
For gender neutral pronouns, you can use they, them, and their. It is proper English, despite what naysayers say. Not to mention it looks far better than ‘he/she’. 😀
“It” also works, though people have problems with it because it “removes the subject’s humanity”
Thanks for the chapter.
Stupid MC!!! HEAD TO THAT PORT AT ALL HASTE!!! WE’VE BEEN KEPT WAITING TOO LONG FOR YOU TO MEET YOUR SISTER!!!
How does not being able to instantly teleport like Miri be stupid?
thanks for the chapter XD
The Butt Wizard
Make Carol a Priestess and level her until she can switch your primary job for you.
You keep your other job settings for everything besides your first one since skills aren’t tied to the job you’ve equipped (see also: Ichino using “Slash” in his mage setup)
Thanks for the chapter.
I like They and Them as gender neutral terms. Mainly because it reads smoother than s/he or he/she.
“he” was originally gender neutral. i still prefer to think of it that way, given the right context. politically correct things can go to h*ll
As a side note, “they” and “them” always make me think of groups of people, or at least two, partially because they are plural.

Thanks for the chapter~Nya…
Thanks for the treat.
thanks for the chapter!
>Asking to be killed because adventurers, even knowing the risks, died because of you
>Willing to sacrifice tens of thousands of innocent people because her master COULD die after using magic again
I seriously hate Carol now.
Gender neutral singular they/them is perfectly fine for noting where gender is not utilized in English.
…the goddesses can’t bear to tell him the demon lord is his sister uh
I think his XXXX skill will bring him to the Seal location everytime he step on transfer circle..
