Prologue Part 3 Negotiations
After finishing screaming, the beauty began questioning me.
[Oh, its already a one-way ticket type of thing huh] – there isn’t anyone who would actually say that.
For now have a seat. I know your final goal but the details are still unknown.]
If there’s a person who just says well I’m off without knowing the goal or any details, please make sure to tell me. I want those people in our society who like to experience despair like in manga or light novels in our world. Those who act just knowing the goal but without hearing out details are easy to trick, so please pay attention.
[Well, you’re right. First lets get to know each other first. I Introductions were a little late, my name is Luna.]
No, no one wants to listen to your name and stuff.
[B91W58H85. I am also known by other names like Athena or Freya]
I just got some outrageous information. After hearing her 3-size information the latter part didn’t even register.
Hmm, I see, of course in this world there some merging of gods involved in the saying passed down.
[What, were you fascinated by me? I guess it can’t be helped. I am known as the the goddess of beauty.]
[No, no, it wasn’t anything like that. Tell me the details about the dungeon and how its management.
For the time being she’s annoying. Also this would-be god, Luna, has blonde shoulder length hair with one eye being blue and one being red. Heterochromia? She’s 170 cm tall (170/2.54=inches) which is normal for foreigners but tall for a person from Japan.
[You aren’t cute at all (originally it was like you don’t have the innocence of a child?). Alright I will explain it to you. But whether you hear me out or not the decision is already set in stone]
[No I want a brief, simple and easy to understand explanation.]
After that she talked for an hour and half and then after finishing went to make a simple guide.
The simple conclusion was:
Goal: Restore the other world’s , Alourit (some can suggest a better name it was A-ro-u-ri-to based on pronunciation), balance (energy=magic) by creating and managing a dungeon.
Reason: This other world’s magic circulation is what keeps the laws of nature in in effect and also is responsible for the activation of magic in that world, but that magic has become too constricted. Basically, The world’s environment has started worsening whether it be monsters or people (there are various races apparently). If it continues this way not only will the civilization that uses magic at its foundation will collapse but also any living things that use magic to live will go extinct. Well, that’s something that will happen after a couple of thousand years. The primary strategy is if you don’t want a god-like existence destroying the current world then the only way to restore the circulation of magic is by creating a dungeon. The dungeon will become an ground to lay the bait to kill any intelligent life whether it be a demon king, a hero, or even wild monsters so that you can recover the world magic. The result of the primary strategy, wait this isn’t because of me, I think. This primary strategy was originally entrusted to a native of Alourit. But it’s that, this world’s civilization level is that of the middle ages in Europe. So, the dungeon master was taken by their greed and lost control trying to take over the world resulting in being killed. The final result being failure. The second strategy is where I come in. Basically instead of leaving it to an idiot won’t it be fine if you assign someone smart? But this world’s average level leans on the spectrum towards idiot….yeah that’s right let’s get someone from another world.
So that’s when I thought, if you can’t use various people, why not Luna? There is no reason to go out of your way to use humans, well that’s what I was thinking when Luna said, [It’s fine temporarily but a god can’t stay in one place waiting for the world to end. Even you, since you have been born has moved from place to place.]
I see, it makes sense. I didn’t take into the account the scale of things. Us humans when we buy pets like dogs and cats, don’t take keep looking out for them until they die without doing anything else, its impossible.
[The gods you know who are omnipotent and omniscience are only tiny amount. And they all act with prudence to make sure they don’t effect the world.]
Are there gods who are omniscience and omnipotent!!?
[Depending on the circumstances the those gods can come into the world but… is it the drop in quality, honestly here its natural phenomena. In Alourit, its to restrict monsters and spirits. They are superior in quality but overall they encounter many difficulties.]
Yeah, after all its the same whether your managing the world or a company, I guess the level…
[To tell you the truth, Japan’s level is higher compared to Alourit’s gods.]
Ohh, Alourit’s gods, that’s sucks.
But I understand, the people in light novels, manga, or even our world, despairing won’t result in the problems being solved. But, I have a question. Even if you send me, I will only probably be able to work at a maximum of a 100 years.
[Oh, I forgot to mention, I will be giving you eternal youth (say that from the beginning?). You might be sick but you won’t die. I won’t give you immortality since if you go berserk I have to come personally to deal with you and its troublesome for me.]
Ah, yeah I understand. Even if I manage the dungeon if I go berserk than there needs to be some way to stop me.
[I understand most of it, but why can’t I come back?]
[Now look here, You understand this world’s affairs right? If I connect the modern world and that world of swords and magic together, what do you think would happen?]
[Just like that, earth would swallow Alourit, but is magic that weak?]
[No but this side has things like nuclear weapons, and things like aviation and space travel that can compare to that world’s civilization level.]
[I understand, you want to maintain Alourit’s civilization level right? You can’t have earth’s civilization level mix right?]
[Yeah, But perhaps I should say that before even earth finishes analyzing magic, Alourit would have already been captured.]
[And yet, I can pass on my culture to them?]
This is where its the strangest, If I go there with eternal youth then I would definitely influence Alourit’s culture]
[What are you saying?] Its your culture right? You, are you planning on trying to build Japanese castles over there?]
[I understand, so its like that. If I just personally try to change the culture overall in the course of time it will be erased and is fine right?]
[Yeah its like that. If your able to pass on your culture then its fine but I highly doubt if will occur. Ultimately your goal is to manage the dungeon though.]
Well of course it would be like that, since my culture is not someone that just one person can teach. Whether its monsters or humans, if I announce them to die then most definitely I will be made an enemy of the world . No, just restoring magic circulation again is fine. If I can designate a spot where I can live like here then its fine. Which ever way I go, I feel like a tyrant.
[Well, you understood various things, right.. Managing a dungeon like a circulatory organ is best and efficient.]
[OK, I understood the story. But what about me circumstances? Will my family forget about me? Going to that world without anything, there’s no way I can manage.
Honestly, because its a forced transfer, I have basically given about family and stuff. After that its about work. Will someone replace me? I will also be causing trouble for a lot of clients not to mention trouble to my seniors and juniors.
[Family and work huh. Basically, it will be like you never met or existed. They will continue to keep going so its fine. Also I’m not gonna send you without any prep. I will be giving you skills from my side. I will also support you, everything except coming back to earth. I will grant any wish within reason.]
[Houu, within reason huh…]
[Then RX-7X [No way I can’t make be like the 1 year war] (gundam reference)
Che, why do you know this side’s anime.
[Then, White Glint [What you want to make a company destroy a country?]] (armored core)
What, things from games are also restricted!
[Well how about I reward you with that after you complete your job. Also later I can deliver you things from this world if you want.]
Eh, if I succeed I can ride in Mobile suit (MS) or Armored core (AC)!! For reals!?
Oops, I got too excited, If I don’t get the promised cheat than I won’t know what to do. Please spare me from suddenly arriving and dying.
[Then are small arms also forbidden? Having a person license but making the opponent unable to use it. [Nope, that’s also after you can manage the dungeon well. On the other side, it they use them even if they don’t know how; you know what would happen right?]
[Eh, its fine if I don’t disrupt the world’s balance and use it defensively, right.]
[The answer is No. Things that are above the current level of civilization are banned in the beginning. I want you to diligently manage the dungeon. Well do you have any demands?]
[You pretty much denied everything…I guess it can’t be helped. Instant Death Evasion and a ring that can help me escape to a safe zone.]
[Oh my, is that fine? At most its just avoiding instant death? If you received a serious wound then you will probably still die?!]
[Then would you be willing to give me instant recovery skill?]
[No way, that’s basically immortality. Well if you do well than I will think about it.]
Che, its more annoying than expected. I can get a cheat preventing death after all….then.
[Alright, for my future subordinates and comrades, I want a item that can guarantee their safety without restrictions.]
[Guaranteed safety huh. I understand, Its a useful tool huh. That’s within the tolerance level, OK, that’s fine]
Alright somehow it worked out. I can be immortal but I can use [Safety] and [Guarantee]….
[Negotiations and explanations are mostly over… then later shall we go to Alourit and work out the details there.
Luna pointed here hand at me. Ah, the useless struggle ends here huh. It can’t be helped let’s somehow make it work and aim for White Glint…. (lol).
This was a longer and confusing chapter for me. The words culture and civilization might need to be switched as I wasn’t sure when to use which word. Till Tomorrow. Might edit it tomorrow. Feel free to make a suggestion for the worlds name based on the pronunciation, I’m not that good at changing romaji back to english.
