Balthazar was just a random giant crab enjoying his life in a fantasy world full of bothersome isekaied adventurers, but then he had to go and accidentally discover the secret of attributes and levels. And also pie. With baked goods and coin as his new life goals, he turns to the competitive business of trading the random junk adventurers loot every day.

Follow Balthazar as he does everything to find a baker... except leave his pond, because exploring the dangerous world out there is for suckers. Witness how adventurers just can't seem to stop dying around his home. And cheer for a crab who makes great new friends by simply buying them.

New chapters every Monday for the time being, fresh off the bakery!

(This story is also posted to Royal Road under the same name)

What to expect from this story:
- No harems, not unless they're a harem of gold coins.
- Silliness, lots of it. The story doesn't take itself too seriously, so you shouldn't either.
- The only kind of OP here is how "overpriced" the crab's deals are.
- A system simple enough for a crab to use, but still conveniently complex when necessary, for some odd reason.
- Proper realistic adventurers: they're not very bright, and they make very poor decisions.
- Did I mention there will be pastries?

    Status: chapter 7: shrewd businesscrab

    The one and only merchant crab that will make you crave for a slice of pie in any way possible

    I really like the story of this pie loving crab, I never ever think that such a fresh read with a hint of absurdity will ever be created in a way that is light hearted and comedic such as this novel
