NPC Town Building Game - Chapter 7 (2/2): God Whom We Worship Saves Us
What should I do? In order to improve the villagers’ current life, I could call a peddler.
However, I would like to save the points as an insurance in case of an emergency.
On the other hand, if there is a Golem, it can prevent threats.
It can also be controlled and be used for physical labor.
I have been struggling with this choice for the past few days now.
If I want more fate points, I need to buy them. I need money for it, but my savings are already empty.
“Is there no way to get more fate points from the villagers?”
I was watching the villagers while thinking about these things, but then they all gathered together. They appear to be carrying and processing some wood, but I wonder what exactly is it that they are doing?
“It is completed, brother. But won’t it be rude to God?”
“The important thing are the feelings. God is watching over us, so our thoughts will be communicated to him”
Brother Gamz gently hit the head of the anxious Chem.
They are close, as always. I sometimes feel something different from sibling love when I look at her.
“This is … an altar and a statue of God?”
“Yes, Mr. Murus. I’m sorry to God for such a poor result. Still, we needed a place of worship and offerings.”
Ah I see. So it was an altar?
Behind the large wooden box is a wooden carved log … where a doll(?) is placed. This was the work that Gamz was in charge of, but it was a rather exciting work.
Its total height is one head greater than Gamz. Although it is roughly carved and barely resembles a human figure, I am still happy regarding their feelings.
Chem offered some fruits from the mountain on the altar.
It is a fruit that villagers like to eat. It is shaped like a pear, but the color is red like an apple. I always become curious when I see them eating it.
After everyone, except for Murus, prays to the altar, the offerings suddenly begin to shine.
When I was gazing at it, the light gradually weakened, and when the light finally disappeared, the offerings also disappeared with it.
A stupid voice came out due to this unexpected scene.
“Thank you. God.”
The villagers are not surprised.
Even though the substance shines in front of them and then disappears.
“It’s natural for God to be present in this world, so does that also make the disappearance of offerings normal?”
-Different countries have different values. If the world is different, it may not be strange that there are differences in physical laws and phenomena.
In the first place, this is a game.
Because of the realistic graphics, I sometime fall into the illusion that I am watching another world through a camera.
“Oh…the effect of the offering.”
Now, the fate points have increased considerably.
A messaged popped up as I expected.
《Fate points are raised not only by gratitude but also by offerings. The more valuable the offspring, the more points you earn. Let’s do our best to make tribute to the villagers! 》
In any case, it is great to know that the points will also rise when they offer something.
However, these offerings should not be a burden to everyone, so I must not force it.
“I have received tribute from everyone. I am grateful, however, these offerings must not become a burden for you. I have also received the thoughts from the material value. It doesn’t matter if it is what’s left over or unneeded in your life. I have the art of turning the material and thoughts of people into the power of miracles. ”
How about this oracle?
Doesn’t it seem like you are humble and begging?
No, it’s okay. All the villagers here are pure and nice.
I was a little anxious, but when I gave the oracle, the reactions from the villagers convinced me;“ How humble, ”“ He cares about us… ”.
They are too pure, and I am a little worried about the villagers. In modern Japan, they would most likely be deceived by scams or cults.
Actually, aren’t you being deceived by a cult right now ????
Anyway, I will accept anything if it becomes a point even the logs and garbage.
After that, I searched on the net for more knowledge of wood processing that may be useful for the villagers …… It took me a while to notice.
My eyes were tired and when I looked out of the window, the area was dyed red. It’s not ominous, but instead the warm color of sunset.
“It’s already evening. When I play Village of Fate, time passes by so quickly.”
Since I was watching the screen all the time, I stopped the game and tried to take a little break, when
“Yoshio! I received a delivery for you!”
My mother calls me from the lower floor.
Did I win a sweepstake again?
It’s better to win the lottery than to win these prizes frequently, but isn’t it too luxurious?
When I got down the stairs, my mother was holding cardboard.
“It’s pretty heavy. What’s inside?”
“Now, the address is …
The address of the sender attached to the box was “Village of Fate”
Translator Notes and Comments:
First of all, sorry for the delay of the release of this part. There were some issues with my personnel health.
I guess I have been using Fateful Village as the name of the game but from now I will start to refer to it as the Village of Fate.
Please comment your views and any problem with the translations.
