- 146 - Episode Twenty-One - Alchemy Division (3)
The next day, I immediately decided to meet with Rinoa, the deputy commander of the alchemy division.
According to Lark’s story, Rinoa must be doing sorcery to gather rain clouds on the hill just outside the village.
Mea and I headed up the hill where Rinoa was.
As we walked, I looked at the request form for permission to use magic.
Five out of thirty-eight pieces, I didn’t get the lord’s seal.
I tried to beg a bit, but as expected, he bowed his head and said he couldn’t give me permission right now.
For these five, I couldn’t come up with a good excuse for the danger either, so I decided to give up for now, for now.
“What’s the matter, Abel? Making such a difficult face?”
Mea stretched her head out and looked at the request form.
I frowned at the contents of the written request.
“Wha-, what’s this written……?”
“The scope and purpose of the permission to use bio-magic. I thought it would be deceptive if I wrote it a little more complicated, but I got played hard to pinpoint.”
I reply while scratching my head.
It’s true that it’s a magic that could destroy the territory if I make a slight mistake, but I thought that if it worked, it could contribute greatly to the Fage territory, but I guess I have to be cautious from the standpoint of a lord.
Of course, I’m confident that I won’t cause such a catastrophic failure.
Once the problems with Nalgarn’s scales are taken care of, I’ll get down to brass tacks and rewrite the request form and do my best to cover up the mistake.
There’s a benefactor’s correction, and it won’t be treated with impunity.
“However, because I scared them with this one piece of paper, it’s hard to put all the suspicious parts on hold. Well, I’ve been given the okay for the basic part, so if I can work behind the restrictions with applications and loopholes, I can do something similar. The only thing that hurts is bio-magic.”
Perhaps because bio-magic is easily disliked by people, research is also quite slow.
It is also highly restricted by national law and closely watched by those in charge of the territory.
In the old days, it seems that radical religious groups burned the books on bio-magic, and a famous sorcerer in that path was assassinated, and there were many incidents.
However, because of that, it is also a magic that is full of dreams.
If we could get rid of the prejudices and re-establish official restrictions and freely handle bio-magic within those limits, the entire Dinrat Kingdom would be much wealthier than it is now.
If one were to conduct research on bio-magic, this frontier, closed-off fage territory would be the most suitable place to do so.
If not right now, I’d like to slowly change the restrictions…….and ease them.
I fold up the paper and put it away in my pocket.
“Mea had no idea about that paper just now, but…… The lord must be knowledgeable about sorcery.”
“He’s the employer of the Alchemy Division for one thing, so I suppose it was necessary to some extent.”
Honestly, I thought I could fudge it any way I could if I just emphasized the good side of the story.
I may have taken him a bit lightly.
On a hill on the outskirts of the village, a group of six men in bright blue robes lined up over simple white clothing.
In the center was a girl holding a large staff.
Her young appearance stands out in the midst of many people of a reasonable age.
However, from the position and the atmosphere around her, I could tell that she was the leader of the six-man group.
It also matched the appearance that Lark had told me about beforehand.
It would be Rinoa, the deputy commander, no doubt.
Rinoa removed her robe and let it hang down her back, revealing her beautiful braids.
Her long ears, though not as long as those of the elves, were peeking out through her hair.
Judging from those ears and his apparent age, she’s a Noir, not Norcs.
Noir doesn’t age from a certain age, so she spends his entire life in the form of a child.
In that case, then it makes sense that she’s in the position of deputy commander at that appearance age.
Rinoa let out a sigh as she lowered the large staff she had lifted with a jiggly and trembling hand.
Her mouth is bent into a hefty shape and she rubs the large cane nervously with her thin fingers.
Apparently, she’s not in a very good mood.
“Deputy Commander-dono, can we stop now?”
“No matter how much you try, you can’t do what you can’t. Rather than wasting magic power on this kind of thing, it’s better to distribute water to the residents……”
I hear a sorceress who seems to be Rinoa’s subordinate call out to her, and I remember the story of the girls being out in the hills to beg for rain.
I suddenly looked up.
The sky was clear and sunny.
Apparently, rainmaking was a difficult task.
I looked into the distance and saw that the clouds had stagnated just before it reached the fage territory.
The road to success seems to be a long one.
“You know we’re going to be interrupted by the foolish Commander, right? He originally threw this job to me and the others because he wanted to put together and discredit those who are opposed to him.”
Rinoa says, and her men shrug their shoulders in disappointment.
I’m starting to know what happened.
Are those guys the Vice Commander’s faction, the minority of the alchemy division that is opposed to Icarus?
It seems that Icarus is intent on reducing the Vice Commander’s group’s voice and the trust of those around them by throwing the difficult task of gathering rain clouds to them.
By creating other spearheads, he suppresses the loss of his own credibility while also undermining the credibility of his opponents who are in his way by making them unable to move.
As expected of a man who controls his domain from behind the scenes.
I’ll admit that he’s top-notch when it comes to self-defense and harassment.
“I’m sorry to my lord, but this might be the limit. The problematic Nalgarn is gone, and there’s no point in staying in this territory anymore……”
Rinoa put down her large staff and gave a small shake of her head.
Her tone was light, but she looked tired.
He must have received a mountain of other harassment of this kind.
“…………Well, that’s right. And there’s nothing more I can do.”
There is a gloomy atmosphere in the Vice Commander’s faction.
In the future, if the time continues like this, the serious guys will probably leave and the Icarus force will grow larger and larger.
As I approached with mixed feelings while looking into the situation, Rinoa’s ears shook slightly and she looked back at me.
When she sees my face, she taps his arm.
Following Rinoa, the other sorcerers followed suit, “The head…” “um, the beheaders!”, each of them says.
A tall, skinny male sorcerer approaches me.
“I’ve been wanting to meet you once! You look more normal than I’ve heard. I thought you have a more frightening, crazed look……”
…… Isn’t that just a random image floating around?
Why is it through the head?
“…… Well, Lark-san has asked me to give the deputy commander a hand……”
“Hmm…… I’m sorry, but I’ve been told to concentrate on the cloud gathering magic. Me and the others are stuck in a state that we can’t do anything. I’m grateful for the sentiment. But if you help us now, you’ll be stuck in our system. I’m sorry, but it’s better for you to do a different work……”
I’ve read some books in the city of Lomarn, and it seems that cloud gathering is a magic that takes a long time to perform, and it’s known as such in the Dinrat Kingdom.
But compared to the cloud gathering magic prevalent in the Dinrat Kingdom, the Marren tribe’s method of interfering with the weather using Ortem is more effective and produces faster results.
It should be able to attract rain clouds in a shorter period of time than in the past.
“No, I’m good at this sort of thing, so please let me help you.”
When I said that again, Rinoa only shook her head.
“…… I can feel its resilience. Clouds, since we got to that line, they’ve been advancing and retreating rapidly. This kind of thing isn’t impossible…….but it feels strange.”
……. I had expected this, but the drought must have been caused by humans.
The magic of cloud avoidance.
It’s also powerful enough to burst open even if a cloudburst comes.
Naturally, it’s a large-scale sorcery of its own accord. It should also require a reasonable amount of magic power.
After all this, they still haven’t let you get a clear idea of its identity, or even whether it exists.
Although we don’t know to what extent the disaster of the fage territory was artificially caused, the isolation of the fage territory by Nalgarn and the disaster of the magical beasts by Hamelin could be seen as the work of the same person at least.
They have planned quite carefully and are about to crush the fage territory.
This…… I think we’re dealing with someone far more dangerous than I thought.
