NPC Town Building Game - Chapter 14 (1/2): Approaching D-Day And Me Earning Money
Editor: Kylerboi, SunderMind
The villagers are doing their work as usual.
The base was strengthened within the previous few days.
The fence which was initially set up around the cave entrance was made up logs with boards attached between them, but now the logs are lined up without gaps. Their height is about the same as Gamz’s.
Not only that, but wooden plates were also attached to the log fence in order to make it sturdier, making it look like a difficult-to-see base. However, it’s unknown how sturdy the fence actually is.
As for keeping a lookout on the surroundings, a simple scouting platform was built just inside the fence.
There are three days left until the Temptation of the Evil God.
Murus, the suspicious guy is still living in the cave, but when does he intend to leave? He shouldn’t be willing to resist against the Temptation of Evil God together with other villagers.
Is it appropriate to escape from the monster attack?
If you were to think of it as a game, then the first assault should serve as a tutorial, resulting in its difficulty level being low.
At least that would be the case for a normal game, however this is not a normal game.
Common sense is often invalidated in this game. If I prepared myself for a classic pattern, then I can only see this ending tragically.
If I were to fail, then I could not continue playing the game. The thrill is similar to crossing the stone bridge while trying to reinforce it at the same time.
If I lose this game, I will probably also lose half my will to live, and I can easily imagine myself returning back to being a NEET.
This isn’t good. I don’t wish to ruin my personal life.
A realistic means to protect the village would be a miracle.
“The current point is …”
《Since I have obtained fate points by pouring in all my earning for the part time job, I can soon execute the 《Golem Summon》.
If I were to use this, then it would become a solid reinforcement after Murus eventually escaped. And the best thing of all is that I can personally control it.
I’m not bragging or anything, but I’ve played quite a few games over the last decade. Regardless of the genre, FPS, action, I am confident in my control skills.
But that’s not the only reason why I want to summon the Golem.
Until now, I used to only communicate with villagers using the oracle, but I wasn’t quite satisfied with only that much.
I want to help the villagers directly with my own two hands. The desire is getting stronger and stronger with every passing day.
I want to join as a villager and not just remain a bystander as the God of Fate. In order to fulfill this wish, I need to summon the Golem.
Today’s work will end at midnight. Tomorrow I am going to do some final preparation for the Temptation of the Evil God. I have to be well prepared.”
I would like to do a trial run with the Golem after the villagers have fallen asleep tomorrow night.
It seems that there will be many days when the supermarket staff are going to be shorthanded next month. Of course, I’m grateful for it.
Adding today’s wage, the fate points will be just enough.
By my calculations the accumulation of fate points from daily tributes and gratefulness of the villagers should have already reached the target value by now…..but ironically, the peaceful days are hindering the increase in fate points.
The villagers will be very grateful when they overcome difficulties and hardships through the power of God. But recently, there were no miracles, and the oracle only shared bland sentences and a bit of knowledge I gained on the internet.
It’s not enough to increase the villagers’ gratitude, although it is definitely possible to expect an increase in points once I activate a miracle.
“For now, I’ll just leave it as an issue for the future me. Well, I hope the villagers are doing well.”
Recently, the villagers have been diligently reinforcing the boards that cover fence and the cave.
Also, as a countermeasure, it is possible to escape into the innermost room after entering the cave.
The other three rooms are surrounded by exposed walls and ceilings. Only the innermost room was covered up with boards, while the tools and such were also stored there. It seems that it was originally a warehouse.
The biggest concern for villagers is manpower.
Gamz and Murus can fight well. Since Lodis has no combat experience, he would be responsible for protecting the villagers inside the cave.
Chem seems to have a little fighting ability, but because she is a valuable person who can use healing magic she shouldn’t be placed on the front line.
I also learned a strategy from the Sengoku period that could be used in the battle, but there is not enough manpower to implement it. I also thought about making traps, but there is no engineer to make them.
I thought about reading books to gain cheat-like knowledge and use it as reference, but there isn’t much that can be done with such a small number of people, so in the end it was useless. Providing information that can’t be efficiently used could even make things worse instead of helping.
Compared to me, Murus who is a local possesses more valuable knowledge and wisdom.
I sighed in my heart over my own inadequacy, but didn’t allow myself to become depressed.
I check remarks of the villagers to see if there is anything that I can help with.
