In the space between worlds, Rodcorte, the god who ruled over the circles of transmigration* for multiple worlds including Earth, Origin and Lambda, had created a place that could be called a ‘Divine Realm’ and was currently sitting in there.
This was also the place that the souls of the one hundred people who had died on Earth had once gathered.
Rodcorte was currently observing Origin’s present state. As a god, he was capable of seeing many things happening there from outside the world. He was far from omniscient, but he could gain a general picture of things.
“The lapsing of Origin into chaos is inevitable. I suppose the cause lies in the existence of Amamiya Hiroto and his death,” he said, speaking to himself.
The world where magic and science coexisted, where Vandalieu had lived during his second lifetime, where Amemiya Hiroto and the others who were reincarnated there were still living. Rodcorte considered this world to be as far-developed as Earth, but it was falling deep into chaos.
The cause of this was Vandalieu… Amamiya Hiroto’s death attribute. The military nation that had used him as an experimental animal extorted death-attribute Mana out of him and produced a large number of Magic Items that exceeded common sense.
Cookware capable of fermenting food to make it reach the optimum level of maturity in an instant.
Storage cabinets that kept food preserved almost permanently.
Medical equipment that removed any poison and illness from the body without causing any harmful effects.
Pills that restored the organs with impaired function due to aging, illness or injury.
Hair regrowth medicine that restored lost hair.
Things that had been impossible through other attributes of magic and previous science… Things that had been theoretically possible but almost impossible to actually create in practice. Such things had been created at unbelievably low costs.
That death-attribute Mana had created dream-like produce and domestic livestock, led to the announcement of cures for previously incurable viruses, pathogens and hereditary diseases and even made cryogenic sleep possible.
Research had almost reached the secret behind immortality.
If one were to ask whether such things were possible with death-attribute Mana alone, the answer is that it really was.
At a glance, the death attribute may seem like a simple counterpart to the life attribute. Indeed, the things both attributes were capable of were similar, and if the life attribute transcends its highest limits, it can achieve exceedingly close results.
However, they are not completely the same. The reason is because life is energy. No matter how much energy one adds, no matter how much one tries to limit its consumption, it will run out eventually. In other words, death occurs.
The death attribute is the one that governs over death. It is able to remove the phenomenon of death from living things. It is free to accelerate or stop decomposition; in the same way, it is simple to produce things that can eliminate poison and illnesses. It is not even difficult to return failing organs and cells to a healthy state.
However, the military nation that discovered the death attribute had caused Amamiya Hiroto to die in their reckless experiments. And the others who had reincarnated in this world had thoroughly destroyed him. Not even a single fragment of his Mana had been left behind.
Nobody could create death-attribute Magic Items anymore. The research could not continue. The produce and livestock that had been created still remained, but those alone weren’t enough to satisfy mankind.
The military nation was internationally condemned for the existence of the research laboratory that had conducted illegal experiments that completely ignored human rights. Its president and the high officials that had been involved with the laboratory resigned, but that was only the beginning.
The dream-like Magic Items that the military nation had been producing and selling were now completely impossible to create.
The largest nation in the international committee that had condemned the military nation for its actions immediately began research on the death attribute. Amamiya Hiroto had killed most of the researchers in the original laboratory and consumed much of their spirits. Their souls were just barely intact, but their memories and personalities were not in a state for them to be useful, so even methods such as Necromancy were useless.
The few survivors, the remaining research materials and the death attribute Magic Items possessed by each nation were all gathered for analysis in a desperate attempt to reproduce the death attribute.
The people in power had been lured by the industrial and medical advances offered by the death attribute, or rather, the word ‘immortality’ which had almost been achieved.
The military nation had become much weaker, but as long as the powerful men of the world continued to desire immortality, the secret feuds between the federal states, commonwealths, republics and new nations would surface in a large way.
War could break out and cause the loss of millions, tens of millions of lives.
“I don’t really care about that, but…” Rodcorte had no interest in calculating those numbers. In fact, people being killed in war would be a wonderful thing; he would welcome them with open arms. He was the god who ruled over the circles of transmigration, after all.
It would be problematic if people didn’t die and come to be reborn.
Even if tens of millions of people were to die all at once, Rodcorte’s transmigration system wouldn’t have any difficulties in dealing with them. It could process up to a trillion people at a time. There would be no problem at all.
Origin had a population of ten billion people. Only a small number, not even one percent of them, would die in war and their numbers would soon increase again afterwards. Things would be back to normal in less than a hundred years.
In fact, people’s life expectancies in Origin had surpassed those on Earth by too much due to the existence of magic in Origin in addition to science, so this was just perfect.
Rodcorte did indeed desire the world’s development, but a society capable of sustaining a population of billions of people without falling to ruin could already be considered nothing but a good result.
Even if a population of seven billion were to shrink to five billion, he would consider it as only a minor decrease. Rather, if humanity underwent some kind of spiritual evolution or reached some ‘next stage’, then they would really be beyond his control.
He wouldn’t mind if they advanced into outer space, however.
With that said, Rodcorte had no intentions of directly intervening with the world and his ability to do so was limited so he couldn’t do anything about the situation anyway.
If he wanted to stop the conflict and war in Origin, it was possible for him to send a ‘Divine Message’ to those who had been reincarnated from Earth in order to guide them and give them information. However, he had no intention of doing that, either.
The reason he had sent them to Origin rather than Lambda in the first place was so that they could gain experience. He had helped them by giving them cheat-like abilities, fortunes and destinies, so he would have them do as they liked, whether they chose to stop the conflict, participate in it or simply stay uninvolved.
If war began, some of them, maybe even dozens of them, could die. That would be an experience for them in itself. There were a hundred of them after all; there would be no problem if some of them failed.
For Rodcorte, a god who was not directly believed in by humans, humans were nothing but bits in a computer. Just information flowing in a system. Good and evil, tragedy, happiness, none of that mattered. Everything would be fine as long as the system continued working with no problems.
“The problem is immortality, I suppose.”
The thing that would cause Rodcorte trouble was immortality. As he was a god ruling over the circles of transmigration, creatures that don’t die would be nothing but beings who denied his authority and hinder his system.
It would be even more problematic than Undead who continued moving after death and the resurrection of the dead.
Undead are a result of souls lingering in the world without being reincarnated, but they would still return to the system eventually. The resurrection of the dead was problematic, but if the soul was already transmigrated, only the body would be resurrected and the soul would never return. Only a small error would be caused.
However, immortal beings would never return.
If Undead were small errors that wouldn’t cause any problems even if left alone for a while and the resurrection of the dead was a bug that was slightly more difficult to fix, immortal beings would be a critical bug that would require the system to be brought down for maintenance in order to eliminate.
“Even considering that, it’s good that Amamiya Hiroto died.”
If Amamiya Hiroto had continued to live, the research had gone on and immortality had become a reality, Rodcorte would have been racking his brains over how to deal with it. Even if he were to send those reincarnated from Earth a Divine Message, he possessed no way of forcing them to obey his commands.
He couldn’t even send Divine Messages to humans other than them.
This was also because Rodcorte’s existence wasn’t known and he wasn’t worshipped by the people of any world. This was to ensure that if something serious were to happen in one world, it wouldn’t affect the circles of transmigration of other worlds, but… he was now regretting not preparing another being like a subordinate god or collaborative god.
Gods are not omniscient or omnipotent; their direct influence extends only as far as their authority allows and to those who believe in them.
No, for now, Origin would be fine. Rodcorte would let it be. Mankind would not self-destruct or decrease in numbers too drastically.
Coming to this conclusion, Rodcorte shifted his gaze away from Origin. And then he suddenly realized something.
“It has been five years since Amamiya Hiroto reincarnated in Lambda. His memories may have returned by now.”
Memories of previous lives returning while still in the body of a breastfeeding infant would have placed a huge mental burden on reincarnated individuals. In order to protect their minds, Rodcorte had set things up so that their memories would start returning from the age of five onwards.
As long as nothing hugely troublesome and unexpected occurred, memories would not return to a breastfeeding infant.
“The fact that Amamiya Hiroto’s soul has not returned here means that he was unfortunate enough to not die within the first five years of his life. It may be some time before his memories return, but I should check to make sure.”
If Amamiya Hiroto’s memories had indeed returned, Rodcorte had to drive him to suicide so that he would die before it was discovered that he could potentially make immortality a reality.
He had three curses placed on him, but even Rodcorte had been unable to erase the death attribute that had soaked into his soul and become a part of him. If he struggled and refused to give up, he would learn to cast death-attribute magic in Lambda as well.
For this purpose, Rodcorte used his system to investigate Amamiya Hiroto’s life following his reincarnation. Through this system, it was possible to look at a reincarnated soul’s past and present situation.
However, there was no information about Amamiya Hiroto.
“… What is this?”
He searched again, but there was no information. There were records of his reincarnation from Earth to Origin, but the records stopped suddenly following his death in Origin.
“Could it be that he wasn’t reincarnated? That isn’t possible. Amamiya Hiroto was definitely reincarnated. But the fact that there are no records in the system means – Oh no. He fell out of my system and entered a circle outside of my control!”
For Rodcorte, there were three irregularities in Lambda. The first was the Undead that even appeared from time to time in Origin.
The other two were the monsters that the Demon King and his subordinates had created in ancient times and the new races created by the goddess Vida.
Those two weren’t managed by Rodcorte’s circle of transmigration system.
When the Demon King created the monsters, if their transmigration fell under the categories of Rodcorte’s system, the Demon King would have been unable to reincarnate monsters’ souls and have them be reborn. For this reason, he had somehow managed to imitate Rodcorte’s circle of transmigration system and created his own transmigration system.
That was why monsters were still rampant in Lambda to this day. This was also the reason bosses and mid-bosses were unnaturally generated inside Dungeons.
Humans and other races who worshipped the evil gods were now falling outside of Rodcorte’s system and being incorporated into the now-fallen Demon King’s system instead. This was another thing causing slightly problematic errors in Rodcorte’s system.
And the problems caused by the races created by Vida were due to the hostility between Vida… or rather, all of the gods of Lambda, and Rodcorte.
When the Demon King first appeared, the gods of Lambda known as Vida and Alda had asked Rodcorte for help. Rodcorte had refused all of their requests and simply observed carefully.
If he were to get involved and the Demon King destroyed his soul, this would have effects on all of the circles of transmigration of the other worlds that he managed, not just Lambda. This was a decision he made to prevent that from happening.
To Rodcorte, Lambda was but one of many worlds. If it were destroyed, Rodcorte would feel pain equivalent to several bones being broken, but it wouldn’t be a fatal wound. He wasn’t willing to risk a swift death in order to avoid his bones being broken.
After that, Rodcorte had protested against the decision of the gods of Lambda to summon champions from other worlds in order to turn the tides of the battle. Because the champions had only been summoned from worlds whose circles of transmigration Rodcorte ruled over, this had caused errors in his system.
He requested that they quickly send the champions back or simply exploit them until they died.
Back then, Rodcorte had thought that Lambda’s destruction was inevitable, so he hadn’t wanted more trouble to be caused by a meaningless struggle.
As a result, a deep gulf formed between Rodcorte and the gods of Lambda. Rodcorte himself didn’t think much of it, but Vida in particular held a profound distrust in him.
With this as one of the reasons, Vida made an imitation of the system created by the Demon King with her own original functions included, creating her own circle of transmigration system, and then gave birth to new races including the Vampires. As she ruled over the life attribute, her divinity was quite close to Rodcorte’s. It would have been impossible for her to rule over the circles of transmigration of multiple worlds, but she probably thought that she would be able to manage one world’s once she built a system for it.
It was likely that she intended for not only the races she created, but all of the future races of people that would exist in Lambda to be managed by her own circle of transmigration system.
However, despite being hostile towards Rodcorte as Vida was, Alda, who prioritized the strict preservation of law and order above all else, defeated Vida and her followers.
As a result, only the new races created by Vida were being reincarnated through Vida’s system.
There was a high chance that Amamiya Hiroto’s soul had been swallowed up by either the Demon King’s system or the goddess’s system and he had become reborn as either a monster or a member of one of the races created by Vida.
“Muh… He isn’t here after all.”
Using his system, Rodcorte looked up all of the people who had been born around the time of Amamiya Hiroto’s second reincarnation but no information on Hiroto was to be found.
“But just why has something like this happened? The probability of this happening is less than one in ten quadrillion. Unless I am just terribly unlucky… Oh no. It’s because of that.”
Rodcorte remembered that the things Amamiya Hiroto hadn’t been given included not only cheat-like abilities, but a fortune and a destiny as well. As he had no fortune and no destiny, there was always a constant danger that he would go along a path that even Rodcorte himself wouldn’t be able to predict.
On top of that, three curses had been placed on him just before he was reincarnated. Rodcorte had done this in order to encourage him to end his own life, but the possibility that this had caused flaws in Rodcorte’s system couldn’t be ruled out.
“I have no choice. It will take some time, but I will investigate if there are any people who have encountered Amamiya Hiroto’s reincarnated soul. I should at least be able to learn of his current situation… This is a Dhampir.”
There was a Dhampir appearing in the memories of a certain merchant. It seemed that Amamiya Hiroto had indeed reincarnated as a member of a race created by Vida.
But this wasn’t the problem.
“Impossible, why have his memories returned? On top of that, he is already using death-attribute magic and controlling the Undead?!”
Rodcorte couldn’t even tell whether the Dhampir in this memory was even a year old or not, and yet he was already using death-attribute magic and speaking with a childish voice. His memories had clearly returned.
“I suppose this is because I did not give him a fortune. In that case, I have to improve my method the next time I have a chance.”
Rodcorte regretted the mistakes that he had made during the process of reincarnating Amamiya Hiroto and the others from Earth.
Back then, Rodcorte had prepared enough cheat-like abilities, fortunes and destinies for a little over a hundred people. He had prepared plenty, so that he wouldn’t be lacking any even if there were many people to distribute them to.
And just as he finished preparing the ferry had sunk with good timing and around a hundred people, not including the evil people responsible, had died. Among them, all but one chose to be reborn in another world.
Thinking that it would be a waste to not use everything he had prepared, he had distributed it all without leaving a single item remaining, only to find that he had overlooked one person.
To think that this one remaining person would become so troublesome as a result.
“Now then, the question is what to do with Amamiya Hiroto… Vandalieu. Should I warn Alda? I suppose it would be better to set the evil gods on him.”
Alda was the only attribute god who was still currently properly active in Lambda, the god who possessed the most power.
However, his relationship with Rodcorte was as terrible as it could be. Alda had no choice but to overlook Rodcorte’s actions so that the order of the circles of transmigration would be preserved, but that did not mean that he forgave them.
Rodcorte’s decision to reincarnate these people had been made without Alda’s knowledge. Because of this, if Alda were to find out about Vandalieu and the others, he would be infuriated with Rodcorte.
From Alda’s point of view, Rodcorte had abandoned him in a time of need without offering any assistance, and now he was doing these things on his own… and a hundred more people would be reincarnating in Lambda with Jinxes, cheat-like abilities that defied common sense that Rodcorte had given them on a whim.
It was more than likely that Alda would order his subordinate gods and followers to murder those one hundred reincarnated individuals.
With that said, leaking information to the evil gods to have them kill Vandalieu would also be a poor move. The evil gods had sense of values so twisted that Rodcorte couldn’t understand them. It was possible that they would make Vandalieu their ally instead of killing him.
As a result of much contemplation, Rodcorte decided to watch and wait for a while.
“A few of those reincarnated in Origin should die in the next few years. I’ll ask them to kill Vandalieu.”
Undead had always appeared in Lambda, so the number of Undead increasing by a few wouldn’t have any effect on the system now.
And for Vandalieu, whose curses would prevent him from turning his experiences into skills, reaching immortality without the assistance of the science of Origin would be an enormous task. It would be impossible to do so in decades, centuries or possibly even millennia.
In a few years’ time, once the second of the reincarnated individuals died in Origin, he would ask that person to kill Vandalieu and then there would be no problem. That person would have cheat-like abilities created by Rodcorte himself, while Vandalieu had only death-attribute magic and the 100,000,000 Mana contained within his Empty Frame. When Rodcorte analyzed the records from the merchant, it seemed that Vandalieu had succeeded in leveling up, but the other two curses should still be functioning with no problems. He would probably not become any stronger than that.
There was no problem.
Coming to this conclusion, Rodcorte turned his gaze away from Lambda.
If he had searched the memories of the adventurer Luciliano who had encountered Vandalieu through his Live-Dead, he might have felt a greater sense of danger.
If he had made contact with the evil gods, he would likely have learned that the soul of the Vampire Sercrent had been destroyed by Vandalieu and made a move before the souls involved in his own system were destroyed.
But instead, Rodcorte remained oblivious to the greatest mistake that he had ever made.
Rodcort, that’s it dummy, you’re doing a great job! Stay oblivious till you go to oblivion! Now that he can kill gods, I hope your ending is near, you incapable poor excuse for a god! You screwed up big deal, and now I’m looking forward to judgement day! 😈😈😈😈😈Gomi sama😏💩
Good destruction they deserve nothing…
LOL, MC was right all along hah. 100 guys gonna come for Van
Wander Sauce Immortal
Top OP, Rodcorte is Top OP
Rodcorte is a stupid intentive chud lol.
Re-reading this chapter it appears that demon king Guduranis was quite clever as he managed to invade another world and managed to copy Rodcortes system.
But instead, Rodcorte remained oblivious to the greatest mistake that he had ever made.
and also the mistakes he will continue making
Well Rodcorte is definiately not gettin’ Employee of the eon award this time.
He’s self-employed. And he doesn’t have any other employees.
This made me chuckle
“Greatest mistake he had ever made”
Huh, no fucking shit. He made a being, that’s capable of KILLING GODS. And he just turns a blind eye, saying; “Ah, no biggie, give him a few more years to return. I’ll also not double-check to see if there are any possible loopholes in my curses, nope. Let him become stronger than ever before!”
The guy’s making all these calculations and talking like he’s got the multiverse working like a well oiled machine, but in every interaction we’ve seen him (like 4/4 now) he’s made egregious errors. He literally handed out a bunch of goodies and missed a person sitting in front of him in an open, completely empty area, like this wasn’t some god level stealth ability hiding him, he just failed to see someone right in front of him.
This is the guy looking over countless worlds and trillions+ lives, but he cant even head count or notice someone in front of him. It’s like he drove away from a restaurant after eating with his family and left one of his children, “woopsies”.
I hope the chapter where MC killed Rodcorte would be satisfying af
Like two hall chapters about the torture Van made him.
Like dragon ball and freezer XD
Why cant he just leave him alone. A god going all out to kill an individual is just pathetic. Just man up and accept that you screwed up. I wait for the day that he would regret not granting Amamiya a normal reincarnation as he wanted.
Because he’s too egotistical and children to “man up”. He’s not emotionally mature enough.
Truck kin is much more better handler of Isekais protagonist than this dumb fuvk
Yes truck kun makes sure that the MC goes to the correct goddess or god
Boat kun is unreliable
Car kun doesnt really put a lot of effort
And dont get me started on plane kun
Plane kun literally crashes the life of the next MC
Vida probably saved MC. She’s more clever then I thought. Having her own warrior on her side.
always dislike this person’s comment, even if they seem nice, it is not really nice. this person shouldn’t even have the right to breath the same air that we do. honestly i am not sure who is dumber aldumb, rodidiot, or this person
ignorance is bliss
thanks for the chapter
Rodcorte being a lazy idiot as always.
Hehe such a worthless “god” not fighting because he doesn’t want to lose his all powerful position lol….you know their just making excuses when your reason for not fighting is that without them no world would have a cycle of reincarnation nor transmigration….Uhm well not to poke holes or anything but we only know of one world with super powerful beings and yet they still made their own cycles…and it’s not even just one sooo if powerful being rose up after no longer being suppressed by this so called god and made their own cycles no one would care about the original cycle now would they…so in the end he just likes the power
Even Bug from makoto fantasy world has a little better head than this guy…
And that’s saying a lot
trust me … rodidiot’s plans only become dumber and dumber, too the point is, how did you even come up with that. take for example you are sing the abc’s rodidiot would go a k, a m, a r, a v, a times infinite stupidity
Yeah I was thinking the same! Even mushi sama of Makoto was a little better than this gomi! Which should be impossible by the way! I always thought that she was the most saiaku saitei kami in all history, but it seems there is always a worse god, well… It’s not exactly a surprise when I think about it actually 😅😅there is worse gods on earth after all, and pple believe in them 😅😅😅
Thanks for the chapter, he really is incompetent as god
Kratos come over here this gods needs beating in first person view
It was at this moment… Idiotcorte…knew… he will be fucked up in the future…
thanks for the chap!
Shouldn’t it be Nimrodcorte?
Both fit perfectly like dum and dumber
Ahh this is why you don’t give power to an idiot hahaha
Because the god of reincarnation is a douche.Thanks for the chapter on a good story
Even if i had 10 stats points in everything and i met that guy i would surpass my level Just to to screw him over and give him thw middle finger.
Ah Idiotcorte… you know, probably not a straight up idiot, but his main issue is he’s really the god of lazy and half-assed thinking. He’ll put in a bunch of effort to make things easier on him for reincarnation in the long run, but once he starts needing to put effort into planning or dealing with others, his thinking escapes instead into how “it’ll resolve itself on its own probably” or “anything more is a hassle, and i’ll probably come up with something if it ever comes up again, so moving on”.
That sounds familiar, that’s why I hate myself prob
Im kinda like that but its because.
I could fix myself but what’s the point even.
So might as well enjoy what i have.
Even if the abilities need prep time, it seems like his problems would be avoided if he took the time to ensure the guy had a happy life. He keeps leaving jobs half-finished and reacting after it’s gone off the rails.
You fcked up god
I find it strange that he found those memories of the merchant. Though it’s not been clarified by which method he accesses the memories, and assuming he can’t access the memories of those outside his cycle (like all them ghouls) would he still not have some method of searching by relevance? The meeting with the merchant was pretty minor compared to other meetings that happened between humans and Van
I wonder if he would be able to see into Sam and his daughters memories?
And when a human gets turned into a ghoul like with those adventurer girls, do they leave his cycle and go to Vida’s?
I expect he also can’t see the memories of the spirits that follow Van around, so all the humans he’s killed are out, since their spirits are still with Van. The only humans, elves, or dwarves who’ve seen him and lived (and not converted to Vida’s races) are Rudy and Luciliano. By chance he came up with Rudy rather than Luciliano. Not too unlikely, really.
He was searching by time frame. Since he couldn’t find Amamiya directly, he searched for anyone encountering a Vida-race newborn that might be him within a year or two of his birth.
That merchant was pretty much the only hit before the Degenerate guy because Van was killing and charming all other humans who saw him.
Well it’s not like he was doing properly his job, bakacorte! How did he access to the memories of the merchant?! 😒Even Van can do that! The stupid guy is in charge of the Reincarnation cycle, he can see the memory of the dead souls, well… When he’s not too stupid and lazy to do it. Well I hope he’ll stay as stupid and lazy as he is so Van could swiftly extinguish his poor excuse for a God’s soul
To me he’s a character you love to hate so it’s hilarious when things don’t go his way. (which is all the time)
The biggest of them all indeed.
Well he doesn’t even hate Van. He’s just an I.T. guy who’s trying to make things better but is accidentally making things worse.
your right, but he´s still an idiot
But I am sure that he is sloppy. Well, not that it wouldn’t be great for Van.
The fact that he does not even care about Van, but is trying to destroy his live over and over is even scarier. He is the biggest and nastiest villain that I have encountered in all the stories I have come across so far.
Yeah but, he’s literally dehumanising sentient living beings and either directly or indirectly causing pain, suffering and death on the scale of billions, trillions or even more live. So while to him its just like data whizzing around as he tests stuff, and he doesn’t really hate Van, he is still culpable for the cruelty he’s putting people through.
Like some people run unethical tests on animals, putting them through pain and suffering, which is already bad enough, and then this guy is doing tests on trillions of humans and casually watching worlds end because of his behavior.
Imagine you are Rodcorte and the system and worlds are like playing Age of Empires (obviously on another scale…), and you put cheat and are happy and a priest converts your “car” (cheat) and attack you… and you create villagers (A LOT) “Sentient beings” until you kill the “car”… would you feel bad for the villagers that died?
He thinks of MC like that probably… even if he says that he knows that he fucked MC live… I don’t think that he feels that way…
He is worse them A.I wich would consider all factors to make a linear system.
While he tries to make a linear system without consideration or paying attention to factors or what his actions will cause.
Is like a blin man about to destroy entire continents because he is oblivious while at the same time not being blind.
And idiot that thinks to shallow even as a god…
Even i would be a better god tham him geez. And that’s saying allot considering i would do as i please.
