Basically, Yuri spends most of her time working every morning.
However, it does not mean that the amount of work is so large that it can be taken for hours. There are some documents that Yuri herself has to approve or read, but for those that aren’t, the children of “Nadeshiko” have cleaned them up in advance.
In the lord’s building, there was originally an office for the lord to work, so Yuri was allowed to use that room. It’s a room with only one heavy desk, but it was enough for office work.
However, recently, the child of “love duty” has come to stay with Yuri as an escort all day long, so an extra chair is installed in the current office. It was a seat to be right next to her so they could directly talk to Yuri. In some cases, Yuri often consults with them about the cases to be settled and receive opinions.
“No way, total destruction… This is unexpected.”
“That’s right. I was disappointed because I expected it quite a bit.”
While still reading one document, she was listening to the Euro. After all, this report document came from “Rindo” which the euro belongs to.
The document says “Report on the production and utilization of materials from different worlds”, and as the title suggests, it describes the results of using the materials procured in this world by the production unit “Rindo”.
Originally, only plant-based materials and monster materials could be procured, but by occupying the city of Nildea, it is now possible to “buy them in the market” and obtain them.
And Nildea has the nickname of “a key city”, and various things are brought in from the surrounding cities every day. Thanks to that, it seems that they didn’t have much trouble collecting various materials for this survey.
By the way, the peddler’s carriage is still coming to the city of Nildea as often as it used to be, even now that the ruler has become the “Yuri Empire”. In the first place, the peddlers who bring in the cargo do not seem to know that the ruler of Nildea has changed.
Apparently, in this world, it takes more time than expected to propagate information.
Or — it is possible that the Kingdom of Eldart is controlling information in order to hide the fact of the disgraceful defeat that their city was robbed.
Anyway, the production team of “Rindo” became very lively because various materials could be easily obtained from the market. This is natural because those who have mastered production jobs up to level 200 had the opportunity to handle unknown materials. However, contrary to the excessive motivation — the result seems to have been disappointing.
“It failed to make ingot from the ores of this world, and to process the purchased ingots to make weapons. It failed to make medicine from the collected herbs and to make spiritual medicine. Failed to process the purchased wood. failed to make a bow and spear. Also failed to tan the raw leather obtained from the demon and make it leather…”
“When I listen to it again, it’s really terrible …”
Euro, who was listening to the story right next to Yuri, smiled bitterly.
It can be said that everything failed in production using materials from different worlds.
“It looks like there’s a reason for the failure.”
“Yes, I know.”
Yuri nods without hesitation to the words of the euro.
The skill of “Rindo”, which is composed of all level 200 production workers, is unusual. For example, Alma of <Alchemist> has enough technology to alchemize the “Philosopher’s Stone” while standing upside down. …Or rather, Yuri witnessed that she was actually doing that the other day. At this point, it can be said that she is a “weirdo” rather than a “great skill”. The production materials of “Philosopher’s Stone” include those that cannot be re-obtained now, so Yuri would like to do it a little more seriously if possible.
Craftsmen who have reached such a level are, “failed to produce ingots”, “failed to cut wood to make a spear handle”, and “failed to tan the skin of a demon”. Cannot be overlooked. This is because all of these contents are rudimentary processing that is in the beginning for craftsmen.
No matter how you think about it, it does not mean that the craftsman made a mistake and failed. As the euro says, it’s more natural to think of this as “failed to fail.”
“— The materials in this world cannot be handled by our occupation (class).”
“No matter how you think about it, that’s likely that was what happened.”
Yuri just read the documents given by Rubetta and others yesterday and just learned about it. It seems that there is a completely different occupational system in this world than what the Yuri know.
It is called “vocation”. It seems that people in this world will give one vocation that God has judged to be most suitable for that person by “performing a ritual in the temple after welcoming an adult”. This ritual is basically free.
In other words, you cannot choose your vocation by your own will. However, if you don’t like the vocation given by God, you can perform a “ritual to change your vocation” at the temple. There is a charge for this ritual, and there is a limitation that it can only be performed once a month. It seems that it is not unusual for people who have some spare time to repeat the ritual until they get a job they like.
―――― After that, Yuri knows, there is no big difference in the system from occupation (class).
The vocation can be leveled up by gaining experience points, the ability value according to the vocation will increase, and skills and magic related to the vocation can be acquired.
In this world, there seems to be a difference in that experience points are gradually accumulated just by doing daily life. In other words, it seems that you don’t necessarily have to fight monsters to raise the level. However, the experience points gained in daily life are far less than the experience points gained by hunting monsters. Unless it is a long-lived race, people who live without fighting monsters will never reach a level of 10 or higher.
In the game of “Atros Online”, the profession for processing metal is equivalent to <blacksmith>. It is already known that there is a vocation of the same name called [blacksmith] in this world as well.
In order to handle ores and metals in this world, the latter [blacksmith] vocation may be indispensable. No matter how high the level is, the former <blacksmith> is no good.
“It would be nice to give the ore of ‘Leangard’ to local [blacksmith] for once and have him make an ingot.”
“That’s right. I’m wondering if the opposite is not possible.”
―――― When you were talking with Euro. The sound of the door being knocked suddenly echoed twice in the office.
Yuri called out to someone behind the door with a little voice.
In response, a girl with white twin wings on her back entered the room alone.
The white twin wings, which indicate that the race is “winged race (Angelio)”, are also the greatest feature of “water lily”.
“What’s wrong, Sera?”
“I’m sorry during my work. I have something I really want to ask Yuri-sama, so I’d like to take a little time.”
Water Lily is the most excellent unit in the “Yuri Empire” that handles sacred magic, and has overwhelming resilience to instantly recover all 360 guild members. However, that power could only be demonstrated when they were in the in-game world of “Atros Online”, that is, “Leangard”.
The current water lily has moved to a different world, so it is no longer possible to borrow power from the god of “Leangard” that they believe in, and it is no longer possible to exercise sacred magic at all.
“I’m not going to leave you alone at your request. What happened?”
“Please allow us “water lilies” to get a “vocation”.”
Sera tells that while looking straight at Yuri’s eyes.
Yuri had already thought about the possibility that she would want to get a “vocation” for water lilies. Since the sacred magic can no longer be used at all, the current water lilies are like “just person” with a level of 200. Of course, at level 200, the ability is quite high, so it’s not weak at all. It’s not, but it’s a fact that it’s only strong enough to be replaced by anyone in other units.
“— Sera. Is that the consensus of ‘water lily’?”
“Yes. I have confirmed everyone’s will, they are in agreement.”
When it comes to consensus, that will cannot be dismissed. However, it was also true that Yuri thought that there was “a certain risk” about getting a “vocation”.
“Sera. I’m sorry for the hypothetical story, but I wonder if I can ask you a little.”
“Yes, what is it, Yuri-sama?”
“There is a clear difference between our “occupation (class)” and the “vocation” in this world, but I think there are many similarities in nature. So I think the two are consistent. I think there is a possibility of competition or conflict if you get both at the same time.”
“………? Sorry, Yuri-sama. I don’t understand what you mean.”
“Simply put, I’m afraid that if you get a ‘vocation’, you may lose the ‘profession (class)’ instead.”
Occupation (class) and vocation are both world-specific core systems. If you try to get it at the same time, there is a possibility of conflict.
――――I think that’s because of the past, when I was involved in the construction industry but had few opportunities to work outdoors, and often worked on a day-to-day PC.
“In other words, we may lose this level that was trained by Yuri-sama…?”
The content Yuri told was probably completely unexpected for Sera. The current Sera had a pale expression that was easy to understand.
“At least I think it’s ‘possible’. Of course, I’m just afraid, and that might not happen at all, or… it’s impossible for us to get a ‘vocation’ in the first place. That’s what I thought.”
“Well, that’s right.”
After all, we “Yuri Empire” are nothing more than heretics for this world. The benefits that can be enjoyed by the residents of this world cannot be obtained by them. It seems to Yuri that such a thing is quite possible.
“… I’m sorry. May we have some time to think together?”
“Yes. I won’t hurry, so think slowly.”
Yuri said so, Sera left the office with a slightly disappointed look. The euro, which had been seeing off its back for a while,
“That’s not somebody else’s problem even for us…”
She was impressed by Yuri and murmured.
There are plenty of materials brought in from “Leangard”, at least at this point. However, it is also a fact that it is surely consumed little by little, and it is destined to run out someday.
It’s still a distant future, though. Someday, when the future comes, “Rindo” is the same as the current “Water lily”, and loses the ability to utilize their innate talent. It was understandable that the euro was worried that it was not another person’s affair.
Yuri looks up at the ceiling for a while while leaning deeply on the chair in the office. She doesn’t think there are any major problems with the rule of Nildea. Still, not all of the “Yuri Empire”‘s lives in this world are smooth sailing.
A water lily that has lost its power. Rindo that is difficult to produce. There are some annoying things, but none of them are time-solving problems.
It might have been the only way to face it from the front and try to improve it.
