Volume 1 Chapter 2
I’d like to go back a little bit and tell the story of what happened just before I transferred to the other world.
At that time, I was neither in the world before, nor in the world I’m in now.
It’s an interstice, a place that should be called a different dimension.
That’s where I met God.
『Bah, bah, I’m a god.』
The god who appeared in front of me wasn’t very god-like.
He was too ordinary to be a god, and to be honest, he didn’t seem very smart.
However, he was also naive and sincere, and had the dignity to convince people that he would never lie to them.
『Hey, do you have any onigiri? 』
Even though people around him make fun of him, he seems to be creating a great work of art.
『Hey, you’re about to be summoned to an alternate world. My papa picked you to be one.』
『it’s Zeus, the God King of the heavens.』
What kind of God are you, I asked….
『Bah, I’m Hephaistos, the god of modelling, well at craftsmanship』
Mr. Hephaistos replied.
He seemed asininity but had a likeable personality. No, God.
『it’s been Athena’s job to manage the otherworldly summons until now, but that guy is a man-hater and blatantly discriminates against his summoners, so there must have been some complaints from the other gods』
He talk to me one-sided about things I don’t understand.
In Short, when you summon someone from our world to another world, there was a god who managed it, and that god had a problem with it, I guess.
『So this time, on an experimental basis, the other gods also decided to give the summoner a skill, didn’t they? I’m in charge of you now. please treat me well.』
「Yes, please treat me as well.」
When I could see the sincerity in the other person’s attitude, I had no choice but to respond politely.
『Bah, I’m going to give you the skills right away. It’s my first time giving people skills, so I worked a little harder. yes』
And so something shining from hand of the God appeared.
The light shines out towards me.
『bah, I’m a god of modelling, so I guess I didn’t cut any corners in creating my skills. Although it may be a little tricky, but I’m sure you’re going to be okay.』
The light is sucked into my chest and disappears.
Inside, I got the feeling that I and something else were tightly combined and fused together without boundaries.
『I hope you will make full use of my「supreme bearer」』
It was a mysterious experience that I saw just before I came to the other world.
＊ ＊ ＊
From there, after summoning to the other world and having an audience with the king, I began to understand what that experience was all about until I came to this undeveloped land.
It was God who gave me the skills to do that.
I don’t know if the ten or so other summoners besides me had the same experience, but I was given a skill anyway.
And yet to be judged 「No skill」by a priest is a big question, but it’s probably a minor one.
Now is the time for me to test the power given to me by the sculpting god Hephaistos-san.
I picked up the scythe from the set of tools I had spread out on the ground and grabbed it.
The surrounding area is covered with grass that has not been touched in hundreds of years.
I swung my scythe towards the grass With Zhang.
The grass as far as the eye could see was slashed and scattered in unison
I wonder if the vacuum wave came out of the sickle’s blade? The range of several dozen times the distance reached by the sickle’s blade was hunted out at once.
And that’s not all.
Normally, weeds have a strong life force and can be revived tomorrow if there are still roots even if the grass is mowed.
But the rest of the weeds that had been clipped by my scythe had wilted and withered down to the roots.
「I have just reaped a life…!」
It’s a great potency that makes me want to say so.
Next thing you know, I have a hoe.
「”Once again, 『Supreme Bearer』 Please.」
I use a hoe to till the soil, but I wonder if I should till the area from here to there.
I thought so and swing down the hoe.
Then a shock-wave-like object was released from the hoe, running across the ground and digging up the soil in a straight line.
The shockwave extended to the range that I thought to plough before.
There is no longer any doubt.
The 『Supreme Bearer』given to me by Hephaistos has proven its effectiveness.
The power of the『Supreme Bearer』 that I use is a skill that maximizes the role of the tool in my hands!
If i hold the scythe, I become a master of the scythe
If I hold a hoe, I become a master of the hoe.
『Supreme Bearer』is going to change me.
I’m sure if I held another tool, it would have made me a more versatile master.
「This would make frontier work so much easier! 」
I want to build an altar and offer onigiri to Hephaistos-san who gave me such a useful skill.
I’m not sure why, but I figured that god would love onigiri (Rice balls).
By the way
Why were the kingdom’s priests judging me to be 「No skill」 when I was given such a ridiculous skill?
「The god who originally managed the otherworldly reincarnation caused some problem, so I was replaced.」
I think that’s what it means.
It was irregular that Hephaistos-san gave me the skill.
Furthermore, he called himself the god of modelling.
People who Craft things for a living are always striving for serious quality when it comes to making something, even if they don’t realize it.
As a result, the 『Supreme Bearer』 skill was created by a god who was so serious that it was no longer a skill at all.
That’s why my『Supreme_Bearer』it’s something more than a skill and is not a skill,
I Dare say it, yes.
Let’s call it a gift.
The amazing power that God has given me.
If the power that God assign to man is a skill.
The power that God gives to man is a gift.
That would be my『Supreme Bearer』classification.

The translation is ok, but somehow the pronouns and references as to who the speaker is gets blurred and needs clarification. Most people would get the gist. But it’s annoying trying to figure things out. Grammarly is highly recommended.
You need to organize the links a bit better. Chapter 1 of this lead to a totally different story. Then this page leads to a totally different story when hitting the next chapter. I’m reading this story via having to go back to the Novel Updates Page and reading it that way.
Really inconvenient way to read a story.
Thanks for the chapter…
