Paladin Festival 1
After hearing what the warrior-like adventurer had told me, I learned more about the Paladin Festival in Galhart.
In the past, the eldest daughter of the Earl of Galhart’s family became a paladin at a young age, and after that, her strength was recognised by the God of Mankind and she was brought back to the god – that was the beginning of the Paladin Festival.
Since then, the Earldom of Galhart has made the Paladin Festival a traditional event in order to produce Paladins from generation to generation. The festival is a gathering of people from all over the country and the world who have the qualifications to become paladins.
Those who demonstrate their qualifications at this event and are recognised by the Earl’s family are given the opportunity to be trained and may even be knighted as a member of the nobility.
The Earl’s family has the advantage of being able to bring the best of the nobles who have been trained in this way under their command.
In addition, the selection of the members of the brave team is also related to this festival, because those who get good results in the Paladin Festival will be favored by people from high-ranking occupations and high-ups from various countries.
However, the adventurer didn’t seem to know much about the selection ceremony-generally speaking, but he said it would be like a small, high-level competition that only selected people could attend.
Then, if they were considered to be good at the selection ceremony, they would be put into a team of brave.
I’m not sure what’s going on in this era, but I think it’s because the demon kings and the like are running amok again, or are secretly trying to cause a world change.
It seems that even this era has its own problems.
“Even so, the Galhart family’s eldest daughter turned out to have gone to the divine realm ……”
That’s a reference to Mizzet anyways, right?
Although the information was a bit wrong, but since it had reached this continent, the source of the information must be Argus and the others.
He had thought of everything, so when Mizzet went on the journey with me, he had told her family a lot of things in consideration of them.
Next, I’m going to hide my identity and find a place to settle down, so I’ll confirm it when I get there.
I don’t know if the legends about the god are getting more and more distorted because of the passage of time over the past hundred years, or if they are just vague because Argus was concerned about the feelings of Mizzet’s family. The story is still a mystery.
Incidentally, it should not be too difficult to get in touch with Earl Galhart now.
After all, it would only be necessary for Mizzet and I, who are already Paladins, to attend the meeting as good people eligible to participate in the Paladin Festival.
We then made an appointment with the adventurer who had kindly given us the information to take care each other if we met at the Paladin Festival, and entered the town.
Of course, when we showed our IDs to the doorman, he looked a bit surprised to see Kenji Galhart. It’s not impossible for a nobleman or adventurer from another country to have a duplicate name – he seemed to think so, so it didn’t cause any problems.
If he complained to someone with status from another country, the head of the doorman might come off.
So although he was incredulous, he didn’t make a big deal out of it.
Incidentally, all I had to do was show my ID card and I was able to get those 2 other into town with me.
It seemed that the other party had some concerns, so they didn’t specifically identify the 2 of them.
“My hometown really hasn’t changed since the old days. Even the adventurers’ guild is the same as before.”
I feel the same way about this.
The population growth has led to the expansion of the town, but the part that was already there has remained the same.
However, in such a medieval era, logistics would be basically carried out by carriage, and the industry was not so developed that it could be mass-produced by machines.
Besides, there was still the distraction of dealing with monsters and powerful wild animals that could attack humans, which led to a slower pace of development in this world.
However, although technology on the opposite continent is advanced, actually it’s only limited to hand-pump wells. Compared with the capitals of large countries, the technology of the smaller Earl of Garhart is not so advanced.
Today’s apex technology is flying ship technology, so I suppose the development after this will be much faster as a result of the ripple effect.
But even so, the time it would take for the town to shake things up would probably not be very short.
“So …… are we going to attend the Paladin Festival then? I’m not good at fighting.” (Momiji)
“It’s okay to visit, right? I’m just filling in the conversation about the Paladin Festival during the meeting anyway, I’m not planning to actually attend.”
If what that adventurer said was true, the Earl’s family had to respect the paladin as a composite profession even more than before.
Therefore, even if we didn’t actually participate, it was only right that we would be regarded as a treasure as long as we had the appropriate strength.
Mizzet seemed to have some interest in the festival, but it was a group of rookies who hadn’t yet reached the level of paladin – interesting but not enough to get herself fired up to take part in it. She seemed to think so, so wasn’t too excited.
There is nothing we can get when we are unmatched by adventurers all over the place, so we should wait and see for the time being.
While thinking about such issues, we walked along – and in the end we decided to take the opportunity of this event, the Paladin Festival, to visit the mansion of Earl Galhart’s family.
But having said that, no one could guarantee that the mansion’s gatekeeper would let us through without a hitch, so in the end we had to observe the situation first.
Go to the Adventurers’ Guild and get information about the Paladin Festival. If all went well, we would be able to meet with the retired elder of the Earl of Galhart’s family, who had inherited the position of head of the town’s adventurers’ guild, but this latter was the real purpose.
The first son, Klein-kun, was no longer alive, but the old man’s position as head of the Adventurers’ Guild would have been passed down from generation to generation, and there was a good chance of that.
After all, there aren’t many nobles in this world who would voluntarily give up the power that comes to them.
