While defeating the black slime, I picked up a large and clear black crystal sticking out of the wall and proceeded down a corridor stained black with some mysterious dirt.
Tessretia—that’s the name of the goddess who is the supreme god of this world, Tesla. The *Goddess* of the [Goddess’ Blessing] probably refers to Tessretia, and the name of this world, Tesla, is probably derived from the name of the Goddess.
When I first heard the word “supreme god,” the first person I thought of was that man I met in the white space, but it seems that man is not the supreme god. If that’s the case, who is that man? I’m curious.
“Could it be that… maybe he’s the personage in charge of reincarnation or the god in charge of reincarnation.”
It’s a little interesting.
If you think about it, that unfriendly and scary man suddenly seemed to be a real person, and it became a little funny.
After walking for a while, I saw a crossroad. I expanded the range of my [Magi Location] to find out which way was the right one, but I couldn’t figure it out.
“If this is some kind of temple or something, then going straight ahead seems like the right way to go…”
It’s not a game, and if this place was built as a practical church or temple, it wouldn’t be structured like a maze. Well, if that’s the case, I can assume that the room where the statue of the Supreme God Tessreitia would be located is in the innermost part of the temple.
“Whatever the case, though, I’ll check the one in the right path first.”
In RPGs, I was of the school of thought that I had to check every corner of the map and take all the treasure chests. If the correct route is in the center, I want to make sure it’s from both sides.
As I turned right and proceeded, I saw a reaction of spaces that regularly lined up on either side of the passage.
I couldn’t see if the door was buried in black dirt, but it was probably a series of small rooms.
“To the impure, may your soul rest in peace. [Purification]”
When I approached the place where the door was likely to be and used a targeted purification, the black dirt turned into white grains that fell to the ground, and a wooden door appeared from the wall. I grabbed the doorknob and forced the old, creaking door open to reveal a small, blackened room. The whole thing was covered with a layer of black dirt, but from the silhouette, I could vaguely make out a desk, chair, shelf, and bed.
It seemed to be a room where the people who lived here used to sleep.
After confirming that there was nothing on the shelves, I groped open the drawer of the desk and purified it to see if there was anything inside. However, nothing, in particular, was found.
It would be fine to search every room for treasure, but if I did it like this, I would lose daylight, and before that, I would run out of magic power due to overuse of [Purification].
“Just a little more, something like I don’t know—“
—I think I can do something if I use [Magi Location] well, probably? I’m not sure if expanding the range would disperse the magic, or if the information would fade and become vague. On the other hand, if I narrow the range and concentrate on the magic, I can read more detailed information, I think.
“It might be worth a try.”
I cleaned the chair next to my desk with purification, then sat down. I just sat down, meditate and concentrate.
“Hmm… what should I do?”
I lay down on the bed, which is just a wooden frame with a cloak on it, and thought about it while holding a piece of dried meat in my mouth.
After much trial and error, I was able to shorten the range of [Magi Location] to about one meter, and within that range, I was able to get more detailed information. Whereas I could only get superficial information at a range of 10 meters, I can now get more detailed information at a range of one meter. This has allowed me to examine the inside of drawers without having to clean them with purification. This is clairvoyance at its finest!
A somewhat unsavory thought flashed through my mind.
It’s a teenage boy’s thought.
…Well, after I was able to reduce the range of the [Magi Location], I went around the small rooms one by one and collected items that could be used. After checking the small rooms in the right passage, I also checked all the passages on the left. That was good, but…
“I was too enthusiastic and spent way too much time!”
I don’t have a watch, so I don’t know the exact time, but I think I spent a few hours practicing Magi Location. From there, I spent about an hour exploring the small rooms. It was just before noon when I entered the basement from the top of the mountain, and considering that it took about two hours from there to the Goddess’ statue–
“It’s expected that the sun has already set…”
It was already decided that I would have to stay overnight in this small room.
And one big, very big problem.
“What is that…”
At the end of the central passage. A large reaction caught on the edge of the maximum range of [Magi Location].
