[ Ding! Check-in successful. ]
[ Ding! Congratulations to the host for obtaining a diamond-quality work hammer! ]
The system’s voice was like an angel’s as it rang in Ed’s mind.
The system knows me well!
Ed could not help himself from letting loose a sigh in his heart. He was beginning to feel that his luck was simply too good. He could get whatever he wanted. He was having it way too easy.
Not only had he gotten a hammer, it was also a diamond-quality one. This solved one of the bigger problems he had. As such, he was in an extremely good mood.
Leaning against a circular plate, Ed crossed his legs, drumming his fingers rhythmically on the ground. He was even humming a little tune.
He hummed and hummed before breaking out into a song. He couldn’t help himself from being so willful.
While others were worrying about food, Ed had already eaten his fill and was singing. His life was simply too comfortable.
Beside him, Little Treasure stood up on its hind legs. The apple it had been holding in its paws had fallen to the ground at some point, as it stared blankly at Ed.
Its inquisitive gaze seemed to ask, “Is today’s food hallucinogenic?”
Ed used his mind to open the storage space. A hammer with a quiet red glow lay in a separate box.
The description of the hammer appeared in Ed’s mind.
[ Diamond-quality Work Hammer: It can be used for construction with high efficiency. Can transform into any kind of tool according to the owner’s needs. Examples: construction shovel, construction hammer, construction knife, etc. No tool that can be thought up is invalid. ]
[ Notice ] : Can only be used as a tool. Unusable as a weapon.
Staring in disbelief at the description of the hammer, Ed’s breathing became rapid.
How was this even a hammer? It was basically a multi-purpose tool.
In other words, this hammer could become any tool that he needed. Of course, it could only transform into tools. Ed would not be able to turn into a weapon. If he could, he would have been so happy that he would have flown.
Regardless, the feeling of dissonance when thinking of this hammer morphing into a weapon was too extreme.
He was already more than satisfied. With this hammer, he could build the processing plant.
In the future, he may not even have to synthesize any other tools. He could just simply command the hammer to take any form. This one tool was worth ten thousand others. It was simply too efficient.
Ed couldn’t wait to take this omnipotent hammer out from his storage space.
Soon, a speck of red light appeared in his hand, before revealing a very lightweight hammer. Its entire body was coated in a silvery-white color, with a pattern carved on it similar to the one on the axe. Although he didn’t know what it meant, it indeed made the tool look beautiful.
It was likely that all diamond-quality items had such a pattern engraved onto them.
Ed couldn’t put down the hammer in his hand. No matter how he looked at it, he was bursting with ecstasy. This tool was simply impeccable.
Of course, the most important thing now would be to test out the function of the hammer. He was already deciding on which tool he wanted it to morph into first.
“Let’s go with a construction shovel,” Ed muttered.
As soon as he was done speaking, the small hammer in his hand began to change.
The front and back ends began to elongate. The initially blunt head also sharpened. Not long after, a small, silvery-white shovel had appeared in Ed’s hand.
Little Treasure, who had been beside Ed, looked like it had seen a monster. It quickly scuttled up and climbed onto his arm.
Ed understood what the squirrel was trying to say. Wasn’t that just a hammer? How had it turned into a shovel?
He had also been sincerely impressed. Although he had already known what to expect from its description, he couldn’t help himself from being shocked as it happened before his eyes.
Ed continued to picture all kinds of tools in his mind. As long as he could think of it, he was able to obtain it.
His curiosity was soon satiated.
He spent five minutes simply having the hammer change into various kinds of tools.
He tried turning it into hoes, pliers, wrenches, and a series of other miscellaneous items.
“Good stuff,” he whispered in awe.
With this hammer, I have all the tools I need!
He was certain that he would never be lacking tools again in the future. As long as he thought of something, the hammer would be able to transform itself into it for him.
Now, all that was left was the exciting part, and that was to build a wood processing plant! He had not forgotten this. His heart and mind had been fixated on this plant for quite a while.
Now that the problem of lacking the required tools was resolved, it was naturally time to start construction.
[ Notice ] : Start construction. Please select an open space.
[ Notice ] : Please select a space of a minimum of 5 square meters.
As instructed, Ed went over to a relatively wide-open area. He had already designated this location for it earlier.
He was full of anticipation as he selected the option to begin the build, itching to see for himself what this processing plant looked like, and how it functioned.
One notification after another rang in his mind, requesting for him to transform the omnipotent hammer into various kinds of tools and smash them on the ground.
He did so, before finally slamming the ground with the hammer itself.
A loud sound emerged from the ground.
One by one, items relating to the construction of the wood processing plant crawled their way out from the ground. The speed at which this occurred also shocked Ed.
As expected of a diamond-quality construction tool, its efficiency was indeed outstanding.
If Ed were to put together every brick and tile by himself, it would have taken him approximately half a month to complete such a tedious amount of work. Instead, he gnawed happily on an apple as he watched the hammer working away on the construction itself, before revealing a smile.
This hammer did not require any control at all. It had started working all on its own, which saved him more than a little time and energy.
It smashed away at the nails that had not been fully embedded.
Time flew by quickly.
In just three days, a wood processing plant had appeared before Ed. No one other than him would have ever seen such rapid construction speed.
As other survivors were still worrying about food, this man had already begun his construction industry, which worked at a ridiculously fast pace.
Everything was going well except for one thing that dissatisfied him. The processing plant was too ugly!
Every part of it looked like it had been hastily put together and required repairs. The dissonance immediately caused Ed to feel like he had been cheated.
He wasn’t very happy about having used so many materials to build such a dilapidated structure. His first thought had been that he was looking at something that had been plucked out from an ancient era.
Regardless, Ed was still satisfied.
