NPC Town Building Game - Chapter 15 (2/2): Game Lover And Game Life
It’s bright outside.
It was twelve o’clock when I looked at the bedside table clock.
I jumped out and checked the pc. The villagers were doing their work as usual.
“Oh, twelve o’clock midday. Right, it’s bright outside.”
When I opened the curtain, dazzling sunlight illuminated the room.
If we survive today then the villagers could have a stable life for a while.
I took a deep breath and calmed my mind and then sat on the chair to observe the villagers.
Of course, everyone’s facial expression were bad.
The tensions have built up over the previous few days. It is being transmitted through the screen.
It seems Carol is also observing the mood and today she is more mature than usual. Adults are silently reinforcing the fences and maintaining the weapons.
“It’s a bad atmosphere. Can I do something …”
First of all, I want to relieve some of the pressure of the villagers using the oracle.
What should I write? What should i say to give them sense of security and make them feel encouraged.
Every time, I am troubled by the oracles, but today it is particularly important.
I somehow managed to write it. Is this all right?
….I believe it so I pushed Enter.
When the Bible placed in front of the wooden carving shone, the villagers immediately gathered with an inhumane speed.
After all, everyone was worried about the situation but so they couldn’t control themselves.
“The oracle has come. Let me have a read. … ‘Faithful villagers. The Temptation of the Evil God might worry thee, but never fear for My Gaze is Eternal. When True crisis arrive, your Faith shall protect you Once.”
What about this? If I write it like this then they won’t depend on their God too much and will do their best without giving into despair.
And also if I write like this then it will easier for them to understand the situation when the Golem appears.
I am actually thinking that I should have properly mentioned then a Golem would appear rather than these vague lines.
“Everyone, we all are blessed by the God of Destiny.”
“That’s right. Stop being pessimistic. “
The shady expression disappeared from the faces of Chem and Gams.
It looks like the complexion of the Lodis family also improved slightly.
From there, they started chatting and the atmosphere somewhat to returned to normal.
Okay, I was able to clear one of the problems.
Now another advice for today is impossible as I can’t send the oracle. I also cannot throw out random miracles as there are a massive lack of fate points.
Actually, I wanted to test drive the Golem but the operation method and conditions are not clear. If there is some time limit then the result could be disastrous.
I wrote it on the oracle but it should be only done in a really dangerous situation.
I wanted to sleep again and wakeup at 11pm but I don’t have any sleepiness so I can’t sleep.
“Let ’s eat lunch”
No one was on the first floor because its a working day.
I baked and ate some mysterious meat sent from the Village of Fate with a cup of ramen.
“This is really delicious …”
The texture of the meat is close to that of pork and is a bit chewy. When I chew, the meat juice overflows into the mouth, and it has sweet and rich taste. What a mess to eat but simply delicious.
My family hasn’t suffered from illness since I started receiving tributes from the Village of Fate. My father no longer has back pains and my mother insomnia seemed to be cured.
Perhaps this is all due to the rich nutrients in the food sent by the Village.
If you eat these food, you will feel like as if you are having some high class meal.
After I finished eating and was cleaning the tableware. The telephone rang.
I wasn’t even going to answer the phone a month ago but now I have started actively answering it. This is due to the increasing in opportunity to talk to others during the work.
“Oh, Yoshio! Its nice that its you.”
The presidents voice is so loud that I suddenly take out the handset away from my ear.
What happened? I didn’t think I made a big mistake yesterday.
“Oh, did something messed up yesterday?”
“No exactly the opposite. You are doing it properly. Do you have any errands today? It’s a bit of an abrupt job and there’s not an enough manpower here.”
Speaking of whether or not there is business. It’s just watching the game, so I don’t think he will understand it.
I would like to refuse gently, but there is also the favor of the president who hired someone like me. The fate of the villagers is at stake, but they are just game dwellers.
Which is more important, game or reality? Usually you don’t find this difficult. I know that….I know …
“What time will it end ?? As I said before, I have some business after today midnight.”
“Oh, I know that. It will be finished much earlier than midnight, by 9:00 pm by latest. “
9:00? Even if I come home and eat and take a bath, I would still have enough time.
Neither the miracles nor the oracle can be used today, so I can’t do anything for the villagers now. Even if I earn some money and increase my fate points, I won’t be able to help much.
…… Okay, let’s do it.
“Oh, I’ll come and pick you soon.” “Tell that Yama bastard to take a break today, Its a favor.”
Yama means Mr. Yamamoto.
Because I am a person with a lot of time, I should help my friends.
Sometime I might need to take a quick break for the Village of Fate. These is no loss in selling flavors in advance for that situation. Now isn’t it ok to spend the day doing some work?
