Volume 10
Guided by the God of All Creation himself, Mukohda and his familiars have found their way into the treasure-filled lair of a long-dead bandit king. Stashed away among the piles of ill-begotten lucre is an item that catches Mukohda's attention: a magical tablet containing the autobiography of an ancient Sage, written in Japanese, of all things! What secrets could this mysterious book have to teach the other world's most cowardly chef? Who was the Sage, and how did he know Mukohda's native tongue? Will Mukohda manage to stay at home for more than a day before Fel and the others drag him off to another dungeon? And perhaps most importantly of all: What on earth is he supposed to do with the preposterous mountain of money that's been amassing in his Item Box all this time? Adventure awaits, whether Mukohda likes it or not!

Volume 11
At long last, the time has come. Mukohda and his party of ever-ravenous familiars are finally ready to set foot in the Brixt dungeon, a notorious hellhole famed for being the hardest dungeon in the land! The God of All Creation himself warned our hero of the unspeakable horrors waiting below that even his overpowered allies couldn’t take lightly. Much to Mukohda's chagrin, this warning was no deterrent at all. The Brixt dungeon may be full of dangerous monsters, devious traps, and glory-hungry adventurers who’d sooner see an upstart like Mukohda six feet under than split a share of their loot with him, but it also promises piles of treasure, oodles of rare ingredients, and EXP in abundance! And speaking of EXP, it’s only a matter of time before Mukohda unlocks his third Supermarket Tenant that the gods have been pestering him about for so long...

Volume 12
Another day, another dungeon! Or rather, another day, the same dungeon, because even though Mukohda would much rather make the most of his mid-dungeon break by lingering on the surface and enjoying a breath or two of outside air, a certain trio of battle-happy gluttons have dragged him right back into the depths again! Fel, Sui, and Dora won’t be satisfied until they conquer every last floor that the Brixt dungeon has to offer, and the most Mukohda can do is grit his teeth and tag along for the ride. But hey, it’s not that bad—after all, if the first forty floors were simple enough for Team Familiar to steamroll through, then surely the next who-knows-how-many won’t pose any dangers or inconveniences either, right? And it’s not like there are any horrible primeval monsters lurking somewhere down there that everyone—except for Mukohda—has forgotten the gods specifically warned them about, right?!

Volume 13
The long, dangerous dungeon crawl is over, and Mukohda and his familiars are finally homeward bound! After what felt like ages underground, Mukohda’s long overdue for some R&R back in Karelina, and this time he isn’t going to let anyone stand in between him and a golden chance to lounge about and not spend every hour of every day fearing for his life. Nothing could convince him to throw himself back into trouble. Nothing! Unfortunately for Mukohda, it’s only a matter of time before his decisions catch up with him and trouble comes calling whether he likes it or not. You can’t fly across several countries on an ancient dragon without turning a few heads, after all, and this time around, “trouble” has pointy ears, a terrible work ethic, and a pathological obsession with dragonkind even more intense than Mukohda’s desire to not get involved with any of this nonsense. What shenanigans will Mukohda’s self-proclaimed best friend in the whole wide world drag him into this time?

Volume 14
Enough is enough! The Church of Rubanov has violated Mukohda’s privacy one time too many—on top of their habit of trafficking their own people and subjugating the non-human races—and Demiurge, the God of All Creation, has finally decided that something must be done about them. What, specifically? Why, sending Mukohda and his familiars over to ruin their day in the most explosive manner possible, of course! Bringing down a dictatorial, human-supremacist theocracy isn’t the only item on Mukohda’s itinerary, though. He also has shopping to do, and conveniently enough, the one town where he stands any chance of replacing his irreparably damaged magic stove happens to be just a short hop away from the Holy Kingdom of Rubanov’s capital. However, that may not be the last stop on their trip if his familiars have anything to say about it...
