“All mechanics, gather around!”
At my command, ten newly hired mechanic assistants gather around Obi Wan, Darm, and Balm.
“Today will be a memorable day for the Iron Knights and the Mechanic Team!”
When I announced this, there was a buzz of excitement.
“Everyone but us mechanics has the day off to celebrate, right? Does that have something to do with it?”
“Well, it’s not irrelevant that those idiots are away, but……they are idiots, except for Lady Alana.”
“What exactly is going on here?”
“After consulting with Master Rafishal, we have decided to conduct the first Ludia core generation today, on this day, when there are no people in the way!”
Everyone seemed to realize the seriousness of the situation and a big commotion ensued.
“I heard that the Ludia core generation is a delicate process, so we are allowed to observe, but we have to watch in silence. Don’t make a fuss like you just did.”
Everyone was interested in the creation of a Ludia core, and they seemed to have taken my instructions to watch quietly.
The Ludia core is generated in a simple sterile room inside the Fugaku hangar. The sterile room was covered with a transparent sheet, and everyone but Master Rafishal and Feri were able to observe from the outside.
“Feri, I’m going to transmute the orichalcum, so keep an eye on the heat.”
“There’s nothing wrong with the instruments, the heat is up to 20 GJ. Rafishal, slow down the conversion.”
“I know, but this is a Class 2 core, and I want to increase the compression ratio, even if it means pushing it a little.”
“Then increase the amount of neutralizer. If we don’t, we’ll have a thermal meltdown.”
“Of course, I’ve prepared a newly developed neutralizer for this occasion.”
Rafishal said as he put the liquid in the container into the machine that was being converted.
“Amazingly……the heat content is increasing, but the temperature has stopped rising.”
“I’m going to have to increase the orichalcon conversion rate.”
“It’s already over the mass of a class 3 core.”
“I’m going to the limit. I want it to be worthy of being the core of Yuta’s magicraft.”
“……Okay. Then let’s go all the way. I’ll take care of the other work, and you can concentrate on the conversion.”
“That’s great, Feri. I’m glad you’re here.”
“It’s not for you. I’m cooperating because it’s the core of Yuta’s magicraft.”
“I know. Let’s make the best Ludia core we can.”
As I watched the work, I realized that the technology used to create the Ludia core was similar to alchemy. My teacher once told me that a magicraft is a crystal that brings together all the technologies of mechanical engineering, magic science, spiritual art, and alchemy, and now I might be able to understand what he meant.
I don’t understand what they’re doing most of the time, but it’s obvious to anyone that they’re top-notch technicians.
“All right, here we go.”
“Excellent work. You could carve out some powerful runes with that.”
“I haven’t felt this fulfilled since I created my first Class 3 core for Sietra.”
“The first class 3 dedicated magic machine, Ralfen. That one was a masterpiece, but Yuta’s core this time surpasses that one.”
“It’s for Class 2, so the specs are way different. I can’t wait to see how many runes I can carve into it.”
Master Rafishal was happy to hear that. According to him, the core is not yet complete, and there is still more work to be done. Everyone in the mechanic team was excited about more work and their eyes lit up with anticipation.
