After meeting up with the Hero Leon, I invited him inside the Temple of the Creator to decide the course of action to take.
From here on, it would probably be a head-on collision with the sub-god forces that had invaded this world, but even so, we don’t want to collide without knowing the details of our opponent.
So, in order to make the situation as advantageous as possible for us, we invited him.
“So, this is the God Realm. I never thought I’d have the chance to visit it alive.”
“What? No, it’s not. This place is like Kenji’s vacation home. The real God Realm is a place with steel boxes running around, buildings that pierce the heavens, and an arcade where you can control people to fight each other.”
The information about the arcade is superfluous, but from Mizzet’s point of view, that’s what it seems to be.
It seems that Mizzet, who visited Japan, has a tendency to believe that the world inhabited by the creator gods is the divine world, and she seems to have been misled by the fact that she came into contact with civilized devices that cannot be explained by magic.
To me, this temple of the creator god seemed more mysterious, but I guess that’s just a cultural difference.
However, as expected, the Hero Leon didn’t seem thought that much about it, and he swallowed Mizzet’s words and nodded steadily.
I’m sorry to say it, Hero. But I’m afraid that if you were to find out about the Earth, you will be disappointed, so I will take advantage of this misunderstanding and leave it as it is.
By the way, from what I’ve heard up to this point after inviting the hero, it seems that the world before the mana depletion, that is, the world when the creator god was there, is a story from a long time ago.
In his generation, the existence of a creator god, who is said to have created the world, not even just a legend anymore, but more like a fairy tale.
It seems that the only reason they knew about the mana depletion was because the sub-gods of that world made a fuss about it, and not because the humans themselves were aware of it.
However, if that’s the case, the question arises as to who created the homunculus named Shie and sent a group of people here separately from the sub-gods, but even Shie doesn’t know the details.
However, Shie said that the Professor might know something, so I’m thinking that I might try to contact that person once I’ve solved the problem with the invaders.
Let’s keep this Professor person in the back of our minds.
“I see. It’s not surprising that at least a few hundred years, maybe even a few thousand years, have passed since the creator god of the other side left.”
“Yeah, I guess so. Even the oldest existing country in our world just has a history of about 600 years, which means that there are no records left from earlier than that. If we take that into account, we can assume that there was a gap of at least seven hundred years.”
And so it goes.
If there is a tenfold gap between the time in Japan and the time in the other world, it means that there was a gap of almost seventy years in Japan time.
However, that would mean that he is already on the verge of reaching the end of his life span, and if he has been dead for longer than that, it would be difficult to understand why the creator of the beginning has not taken any action against a world where the creator god has disappeared.
He even went out of his way to give me his power and kindly pointed me to the solution.
If that’s the case, then it’s inconceivable that the creator god on the other side is already dead and there’s nothing I can do about it.
So, is it natural to think that this blank period is due to some kind of [skip] function working in the absence of the creator god, causing the time gap?
But then, it’s still …….
“Yeah, I get it. I think I have a clue to the solution to this problem. The creator god of your world probably exists in what you call the God Realm. If we can find him and bring him back, everything should be fine.”
“What? Really, Kenji?”
If my prediction is correct, that is.
However, that person must have some reason for not being able to interfere in the world he created, so I am not so optimistic.
But it is true that there is hope for the rest of the world.
And this will change the way we deal with sub-gods who are invaders from other worlds.
If the creator god had already died and the world was in a helpless situation, the only solution would have been to keep fighting until one of us survived, or to move the hopefuls here.
However, if the other side’s creator god is still alive, we will have to fight them at least once to get them to listen to us, and if we can get some clues from them to identify the other side’s creator god, we can search for him on Earth.
In other words, the most peaceful solution for both sides is now possible.
After explaining this, the Hero clenched his fist and muttered, “…… I still have hope.”
…… Oh, oh.
It’s very picturesque, when you say it like that.
This is exactly the kind of Hero that I feel.
Anyway, while holding such a strategy meeting, we gathered information about the sub-gods on the other side and made preparations to challenge them in a decisive battle.
──── and after three days of preparing for each other.
We finally made our way to the site of the decisive battle, the demon continent where the [log] shows that the battle against invaders from other worlds is still ongoing.
