I bet the Dark Lord is going to be like "yeah this castle is too fucking big, I called you here because it's just an enormous bother to have to traverse the damn thing. You're architects/builders do something about it."

Watch the dark lord be a sweet ol' person with a hunched back tending to a little vegetable garden.

Interesting. Not impossible, but unlikely - I just reread the whole thing and found no foreshadowing at all... but it would be hilarious.
BTW, upon said rereading - I'm willing to fight anyone badmouthing Baldur and Maribel's love story just for being het.

Yeah I don't think there's any foreshadowing for it, but it would be an interesting surprise haha

Edit: Though maybe how strong Soara is? That could be the foreshadowing.

Honestly, I'm here primarily for the yuri, but I stumbled across this one and it's really good. I love how creative it is about practically everything, from twisting tropes to the actual architecture. The art style is also fantastic and the overall story has been very wholesome. Good stuff.

This feels like a prequel to RPG Real Estate. After all, if you build all these houses you got to have someone to sell them later.

Refined with the pen and hot with the hammer! Man, I'd fall hard for a woman like that IRL.

There’s something quite moving in this story: building one ‘s own home, new friendships, finding one’s happiness, changing… Nothing complicated, but the most important truths of a life well lived. And the art is gorgeous. Thanks to the author who brought this gem to life, and to the translators for their hard work.

i like this series from the beginning, because i like the art, but i'm also a sucker of technology and science, and architecture is a nice combination of both. i always love the double pages with the "constructionplan". and now the master architect is even a woman, which makes it even better =o) i always love it when you see women in "men's" jobs ;o)

I missed chapter 9 when it first came out, but now that I've read it I'm reminded of how tragic Soara's backstory is and how she hasn't really been allowed to move on from it, despite traveling with the dwarves and experiencing various fluffy things. A large part of the problem is that no one seems to acknowledge what she went through or what that means for her; they just moved on with their lives and expect her to fit into the new paradigm. Consequently, she hasn't had any chance at closure.

A particularly stark example of this was the introduction of the 3 generals. The dwarves react with, understandable, fear, but they also expect Soara to react the same way, rather than try to assure her that a fight isn't necessary or that they aren't here as enemies. I don't recall how much Soara has told the Dwarves about her past, so they may not know that she was specifically trained to defeat the Dark Lord, but at a minimum they should realize that she comes from a very deprived environment, is exceptionally powerful, and that her first reaction to danger or perceived hostility is to confront it. They just never seem to take that into account, except for when her strength is useful to them.

The picnic with the Dark Lord is even worse. He's the figure Soara has been raised to view as a hated enemy, someone thoroughly steeped in violence, without any claim to a peaceful life, just like her. However, unlike her, he's moved on and found a home that she has never allowed. Throughout the chapter, everyone treats Soara's distrust and unease as just her being quirky and weird, as if it's coming from out of nowhere, rather than a legitimate reaction; the dwarves even chastise her for being rude, but those are totally reasonable reactions for someone in her position and I hope her past gets addressed soon.

I love these calm found family and good vibes mangas. The little look unto "monsters" life and culture is also realy cool, remindes me of Heterogeneous Linguistics, but that one is more about communication and survival.

Thanks Cyan Steam for the scanlation!
