Synopsis: Renjin Yanase is an ordinary member of society whose occupation is a sales person. His hobby is an online VR game “Einherjar” that has been on for over five years now. It is a game with high degree of freedom and Renjin silently works hard to nurture his subordinate character.

The next day was a holiday so he’s going to use it for boss hunting all night.

When the boss hunt is finished, Renjin falls asleep in the game. He felt like someone was calling his name so he woke up.

Standing in front of the half-asleep Renjin was Eleanor, a character he created.

When Renjin looked outside after being puzzled to the characters who behave like they are alive, the outside scenery changed into one that he did not know at all.

Renjin who surveyed the surrounding, realized that the castle and the 200 subordinates that he created with time and money was transferred to a different world.

The transferred Renjin announced the declaration of the founding of a nation after a week.

    i am enjoying the story, the translation is good bordering on excellent, there aren’t a over abundance of notes to mess up the immersion, and the protagonist does what all the other protagonists everywhere should have done! He sleeps with his followers(not saying you should but when they throw themselves at you you should catch them not act like a brick wall), has a back bone (because i’m sorry but cowardly,”perverted”, self-deprecating people are easy to “grow” they don’t really go anywhere) and he knows what he wants an takes the path to get there without any of the “oh i’m not talented enough” or “i’m just a so and so” he adapts and moves on with his life and gets things done! And that’s why i enjoy this story

    1. elite4harmon

      Thank you very much for your review. 😀

      1. Daniel

        umm i cant read any of the password protected ones i put the pasword in but it dosnt load….. why the passwords all of the sudden????

      2. Elite4Harmon

        password always starts with an upper case letter. It is case sensitive so be careful when typing.

      3. Daniel

        nm i figured it out. TY

      4. Van

        ah excuse me may i know where/how to get password?

      5. Elite4Harmon

        How come you were in this page but you didn’t notice the password?
        Just check this page slowly and you’ll find what you’ve been looking for.

      6. Um will you still continue this story? and also, is there any more illustrations for the story?

      7. Elite4Harmon

        I will continue to translate this until the author completes it.
        I can’t find illustrations myself so I can’t post them beside on those in the glossary.

  2. Ryougi

    So far, its a decent story. One glaring flaw is how many characters it throws at you without making them feel distinct enough. If I were to compare it to another LN, like Overlord, Overlord spends entire chapters or volumes letting you get to know the characters better, so you know who they all are. In this one, the character names leave my memory as fast as they enter it. As I’m writing this, I can’t even recall the MCs name, and thats 36 chapters in. They introduce characters by telling you there name, race, and job, and thats it. And that is not enough.

    1. elite4harmon

      Thank you very much for your review. I believe a number of readers also shares the same thought. Should I make something like a glossary?

    2. Ahirube Tohisa

      In Overlord when a character gets introduced carefully high chance that guy will die in a couple moment later

      1. Kazuto821

        Hahahahahaha ikr

      2. steve88Bidon

        There are even several characters that are introduced with a complete backstory within a flashback that happens during the moment the killing blow is lunched at their face…

    1. Elite4Harmon

      I will post it as soon as the author posted one. So far he only uploaded some sort of map and it’s fir another title.

  3. Rama Narendra

    So far is there any detailed character introduction with images? I’m struggling to remember who’s who

    1. Elite4Harmon

      As soon as there is something like that, I’ll post it immediately. I created the glossary page for that particular purpose.

  4. Raizu

    I just found this novel. It’s quite interesting.

    Can I suggest you to make an additional menu for the illustrations? (if there is any). Thanks 🙂

    1. Elite4Harmon

      I will definitely make something like that as soon as the author uploaded some.

  5. lnpretenders

    Really refreshing story… thank you so much TL-sama…

  6. The Syoryuken

    i like the story.. and the MC is so OP!! and i like the MC that can say I AM IN THE ORE TUEEE STATE!! well i like too the MC that hidden his true power but… im more prefer MC that going all out without minding everything like RE:Monster maybe!! anyways thank you so much TL-sama!!! really thank you!!

    1. The Syoryuken

      its just me or the TITLE this novel does change? i think the former was “I Founded a Nation Within a Week” but at novelupdates its changed to “The Strongest Guild Master Founded a Nation in a Week”…. ahh i get it… so ” I = The Strongest Guild Master” umu!!

  7. piratze

    Grr..I really need to read what will happen to those idiots called s (stupid) rank maess adventure..thanks for the always, you’re the best!

  8. Ryan Choi

    Will donations affect translation speed?

    1. Elite4Harmon

      The translation is already fast enough. 1 chapter per day for a japanese web novel is really fast. Donating will earn you additional chapter depending on how much you’ll donate and how much free time I have. I can translate 2 sponsored chapter on 1 day the most.

  9. Syoryuken

    Ano ne! What t-times exactly admin-san uploading/publishing the chap?…

    1. Elite4Harmon

      Depends on when will I finish editing the chapter.

      I blocked a certain IP address. You must have the same ISP as that guy. I suggest using VPN or wait for a few hours until your IP change.

  12. Alvin

    What is not update?

  13. Peny

    An interesting read. No complaints about the translations either ????

  14. Alvin

    kenapa hari ini tidak update

    1. The Syoryuken

      karena admin nya lagi sibuk!! TA DA!!!

  15. ichibaka1

    I have a question, why do you always post a new chap at 5 AM Eastern time?

    1. Elite4Harmon

      Lunch break. I also post at trat time on weekend to be uniform.
      I just want the readers here in my site to build a habit of visiting my site on a certain time.

      1. ichibaka1

        Yup and that habit you’re trying to cultivate is making people staying awake or wake up at 5 in the morning to read the new chapter.

        What evil masterwork ????????????????????????????

  16. Neko MK2

    c110 didnt have any link ?

  17. thekingluffy

  18. RUSLAN

    “Not Acceptable!

    An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security.”
    why does this error occur? when I dial the C122

  19. goo21

    Password protected chapters don’t work at least on mobile Chrome

    1. RUSLAN

      Chrome computer browser also does not work.
      Cache COMPLETELY brushed.
      Installed the Opera.
      Does not work.

      1. elite4harmon

        The problem is with my host. I suggest you to try using VPN proxy app.
        I apologize but there is nothing I can do with that presently and it will take a reaaalllyyyyy long time before the tech support act.

      1. goo21


      2. RUSLAN

        Which country should I connect to?
        Or just flipping through all the countries for subaridity?

      3. Elite4Harmon

        Believe it or not I also wasn’t able to log in because of that error once. Tech support of my host are not responding so I tried using VPN for chrome. I’m from asia so I tried US and it works. You probably need to try other continent.

  20. bluebird1024

    I hope it will have a digital version.

  21. bellcross13

    I was imagining Eleanor as the same age of Albeddo.

    1. Elite4Harmon

      I know what you mean. I also never expected her to look like a high school girl.

      1. bellcross13

        Right? Especially the vibes that she gave when she forced him into doing “it” i can’t imagine her doing it like that with her JK look.

  22. venushkafdo

    hmm they all look good mo on cute side but good

  23. The Butt Wizard

    “Ren? That’s a weird name.”
    “That’s just my surname. My first name is KYLO.”

    cuts everyone down

  24. Fate

    i think this novel is better than overlrd, the storyline is focused at mc not like overlrd that too many POV, but unfortunately every chapter is too short, well the translator-sama is updating everyday so its ok..

  25. GoldSweeper

    At ch 136 rn and i really feel like the author is dragging this out way longer than needs be. He could really summarise things and improve progression. Tl work is great tho. No complaints there

  26. Alvin

    What is chapter 140 not update?

    1. Fate

      network problem?
      i’m waiting for the chance to get first comment in new chapt,, ????

  27. GoK

    Whats w/ today? Almost all LN I’m following haven’t updated, is there a holiday or something?

  28. xkei1215x

    I wonder what happen to TL-sama? I haven’t heard from him since yesterday.

  29. Arispati

    translator-sama where are you? why you not update ch. 140? did something happened?

  30. Captain Crunch

    I hope TL is doing OK. Is it the flu or something? Lots of people dying from the flu this winter. Don’t die, TL!

  31. Dany

    Hope you get well soon.

  32. flufyfurryjr

    Get well soon TL-Sama!! =D

  33. xuanheilong

    It’s like a wuxia or xianxia character or should I say a man with balls who is not afraid to use them written by a Japanese author I like it

  34. ichibaka1

    Is Elite4 down with sickness again?

    1. Elite4Harmon

      Nah, ISP problems. Connection is restored so I’ll post the next chapter as soon as I complete it.

      1. terror100

        10 days later still no update?

    1. terror100

      10 days already D:

      1. The Syoryuken

        muuuu!! be more patient guys!! but well i really really really hate cliffhanger! so the thing that i can only do is pray, so get well Oou ISP-dono!!

  35. Rizky Adrian

    Where’d you go ????
    I miss you so
    Seems like it’s been forever
    That you’ve been gone ????

    1. The Syoryuken

      noh.. it was “Retry”!!

  36. terror100

    YEA new chapters 😀

  37. Razeef

    I really really enjoy reading this tittle. The author sets the world to be very vast and with so many rooms for more expansion.For me this story seems like a well lit room. Very bright. As thought the author wants readers to enjoy every bit of what he imagine it to be. This has a lot of possibilities for more plots in the story line in the future.
    Not to compare to other tittle but somehow i feel there are some novels are not to considerate about the story’s world but focusing too much on (pardon my words) narrow vision. That is why i enjoy this one so much.

    Thank you very much Translator-dono for taking up this project. I hope to read more of your translation in the future. I have re-read this tittle from start to present about 3 times while waiting for new release.

    P/S: Very sorry if my word is confusing but i really want to express how happy i am reading this tittle. i hope this will get through since english is not my native language.

  38. terror100

    where is mij chapter a day D:

  39. lucaztoxic

    Just have a question, how did you guys come up with the name “founded”? It should be “found”, right?

    1. ichibaka1

      “found” here is not past particle of “find”, but a presense tense itself, as in make or create, but almost used exclusively with starting a nation from scratch. “Founded” is the correct past tense.

  40. Ravelin

    Dude i cant open the chapter 173. I typed in the password but some error shit just appeared. Help man

    1. Elite4Harmon

      It has a password because I set it up to have a password. You’re next question would probably be “what is the password?”. Just check this page slowly.

      1. Ravelin

        Ah dude i just told u i typed it and Error appeared. Password is C173 so yeah error

  41. Ravelin

    Yes finally thanks dude whatever u did finally got in

  42. Hussein Jamal

  49. Jp

    Thanks for the awesome read!

  50. buji

    i would really like this novel’s main story to continue. i suggest that the dungeon arc should feature brunhilde’s party with wolf and the other subordinates of ren. also please make an arc showing a country of faeries and a country of dwarves so we can see mira and io more. hehe. plus an ac about what happened to the first empire that they destroyed and arcs about other human countries. then the ending would be fighting another continent’s forces. please continue this story. i hope who would consider my suggestions. hehe. thank you.

  51. Harsh Sharma

    Can I scrape this and create epub of this. I will only use it for myself. Actually, I have kindle and I want to read this in it so it will be nice if i could get a epub or create one myself of this.
