Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 282
Hmmm. Since it was an oracle from God, they could have been more precise! But I guess even Gods would not know the exact time and date of the eruption.
Maybe, in human terms, it was like when someone felt like sneezing, but couldn’t, but would eventually sneeze? Sorry for the crude analogy.
In the past, volcano prediction was based on the prediction of volcanic eruption cycles from literature and other sources, and the installation of seismometers on mountains with high eruption potential to pick up volcanic tremors and measure the geomagnetic field.
Compared to that, we could get pinpoint forecasts without any effort on the part of humans, so it was very cost-effective. Yes, I do appreciate it, after all.
“As the head of the Forestry and Agriculture Department, I must actually see the sacred mountain, even if only from a distance. I must predict the damage to the forest and farmland in the event of an eruption, and I must also identify the neighboring villages and make plans for evacuation.”
Well, Forli-san was right. It would be difficult to predict the damage based on the shape of the mountains and the topography of the area using only a map.
It might be dangerous, but it was necessary to check the site. As expected of a wild-life, on-the-spot approach.
“You are right. And if we go there, we can predict the timing of the eruption to some extent from the plumes from the crater and the earthquakes in the surrounding area.”
If volcanic tremors and plumes were intense, an eruption would be considered imminent. Interviews with nearby villagers will tell us if there have been any recent changes.
“Do the Priests have any knowledge of the signs of an eruption, and would you be willing to go with Lord Forli to the mountain to see if an eruption is imminent?”
“Yes, it is our duty to accumulate knowledge about volcanoes. We will send someone who knows more about the volcano.”
“”Please do. Can you also check the literature to see if there have been any eruptions at the mountain in the past?”
“I will begin my research immediately.”
The priest, who seemed to be an old-timer, tapped his chest.
However, unlike in my previous life, I would not be able to find the records I wanted to look at with a single search.
It would be necessary to scour the records by human wave tactics. Oh, I want to make a database.
“This is an evacuation site, but in this old mine, there is still a building that used to be a miner’s dormitory. It is only partially used now because they can no longer get iron ore. It will be in a lot of disrepair, but let’s check its condition.”
“Well, Lord Aaron, that is a good suggestion. If the eruption occurs in the next few months, we need to start preparing an evacuation site immediately.”
I didn’t want to make a move on my own, but it was an emergency, and Big Brother must not see it as a problem.
“I must inform Big Brother. Is it quickest for me to go back and talk to him? Or would it be better to have one of the knights rush back?”
“I think it would be better if the Young Lady would provide the details, since it would be difficult to coordinate with His Excellency, even if I were to deliver the news a little earlier.”
“If that is indeed, Sir Forli, then I shall do so.”
The chief priest of the mountain temple bowed to Ekaterina.
“I am impressed by the intelligence of the Young Lady, and how calmly she handled such an unexpected situation…and she is so familiar with the signs of an eruption, such as smoke plumes and earthquakes.”
Oh, no, the troubleshooting mode from my previous life as a company store employee had been activated.
But I see, things like volcanic tremors, which were common knowledge in my previous life, were special knowledge in this world, right?
It was probably a bad idea to say it as if it were a matter of course. But this was an emergency, so there was no time to worry about it.
“I am very impressed with the way you have handled the situation. I see that the mountain temple is not only in charge of honoring the gods, but also of saving the people of this world.”
“I thank you, my Lady. The wise Duke Vasily has decreed that the mountain temples should not only receive oracles.”
As one would expect from the efficiency-oriented Lord Vasily, he made people work hard, even in a religious institution. It was like an oracle to the point that it was reflected in human society.
In my previous life, I was nervous about the separation of church and state, but in Yurinova, politics was incorporated with religion in the governance of the people.
Unlike in my previous life, in the mountain temples, the Gods really appear, so there would be no fear that religious people would use religion as a cover to realize their own desires.
I guess it was because gods don’t descend so often in the sun temple of the imperial capital, so the high priests and others seem to do as they please.
“As the Young Lady said, a number of villages will be saved thanks to the oracle. Such an oracle can only be given if the worshipers satisfy the will of the Gods. The fact that three gods have descended on this occasion shows that the Young Lady is a person who is remembered by the gods. Please visit us again.”
“I, personally, would only visit you if Big Brother’s government is in accordance with the will of the Gods.”
But I would like to visit the mountain temple again, this time at a more leisurely pace. I would like to take the time to see the stone statues of the gods and learn what kind of Gods resided on the mountains.
Now, I must hurry back home again, and ask the horses and the priests to do their best.
Big Brother! As I promised in my dream, I would return home as soon as possible!
I have something urgent to report, though!
