While being preoccupied with the buying and selling of slâves, I found myself at the age of 15.
So far, I had accumulated a significant amount of money. The loyalty of the slâves was also quite high, so wasn’t this enough for avoiding the destruction flag...? I thought so.
However, there remained a lingering issue.
“Just one more year until the beginning of the main story...”
Right, once I turn 16, it will finally begin.
Within this game world, [Egoistic Fantasy], the world of the main story will unfold...!
In the beginning stage of [Egoistic Fantasy], the main setting was in [Heinrich Aristocratic Academy].
And starting next year, when I turn 16, I am set to attend that very school.
Of course, the original protagonist of the story would also be present there.
If that happens, I will most likely be headed for ruin — right, unless I take action.
However, I had saved up a considerable amount of money so far. I had also earned the trust of my slâves. In preparation for the possibility of destruction route, I trained dedicatedly in healing magic. Even if I get torn to pieces during my destruction route, I'll somehow be able to revive with my healing magic...!
That’s why, considering my current circumstances, there was a possibility that I could potentially avoid the destruction route altogether.
However, you never know what might happen in this world. It's important to be prepared for the worst and never let your guard down.
Let's pit the world’s power of fate against my ability to avoid the destruction flag and see which one comes out on top.
The biggest problem though is the original protagonist, huh?
The protagonist of ‘Egoistic Fantasy’- Alt Francifon was a hero of light with a strong sense of justice.
The original me, Erd Schmarken, was destined to be denounced and judged as a villain following his involvement with Alt.
“Yeah, I definitely don't want to get involved with him.”
I made up my mind that even if I entered the academy, I would never get involved with Alt.
Well only if that's possible, that is...
Now then, we still have about a year before the start of the main story though.
Until then, let's make sure to do everything we can.
Just in case, it’s better to be cautious and have some extra insurance in place.
In the past few years, the number of my slâves had significantly increased, and the profits have been consistently growing.
And with that, I succeeded in purchasing a certain item.
This was it—
Description: It is possible to program any magic and seal it within the orb
This was a magic archiving orb, a special item that allows one to record magic and then use it freely later. It came at a high price, but I managed to acquire several of them. In order to do what I had in mind, I needed more than one of these orbs. I was waiting for this moment.
The usage of this orb was quite straightforward. First, you cast the magic you wish to record towards the orb.
Consequently, the magic will be stored within the orb. After that, all you had to do was activate the orb, and it would produce the same effect as the recorded magic.
In other words, it's a device that allowed one to retrieve magic anytime they wanted.
The great thing about this item was that anyone could use it. It didn’t necessarily have to be activated by a magic user. In other words, using it you could lend magic to others.
Using this item, there was something very specific I wanted to do.
I sealed [Extra Heal], the highest level of healing magic, within the orb.
After that, I went on to prepare multiple orbs containing extra heals.
Then, I called upon my exclusive slâve, Arday.
“Alright, Arday. I'm about to assign you a mission.”
“Yes, anything for you. Master.”
“I will give you this orb. With this, please buy 15 suitable defective slâves. Then heal and sell them off for a profit.”
“U-understood! I'll do my best!”
I hand over 15 orbs to Arday.
That's right. Until now, I've been personally purchasing slâves, healing them, and then selling them.
However, from now on, I will become even busier.
I had to attend the academy in one year, and there were other things I need to get done as well.
In order to avoid the destruction flag, there were still things that had to be done.
However, I wanted more money, to save up even more than before. So, I came up with an idea.
That's right, why not have slâves heal other slâves and sell the latter?
In other words- it’s automation of the slâve trade. If I could establish a system where the entire process of buying and selling slâves operated automatically without requiring my direct involvement, it would be the easiest way to generate income.
I simply needed to infuse magic into the orbs in advance, so that even while I'm sleeping, the profits will keep coming in.
“So, Arday. I'll leave the rest to you.”
“Yes, please leave it to me!”
As a trial, I'll try asking Arday to accomplish a task.
Arday was accompanied by another strong slâve as a guard.
If this goes well, let's give the orbs to several others besides Arday.
As a result, the number of slâves should increase automatically more and more.
Making slâves sell other slâves while raking in the profit. Even I must admit, it's a remarkable idea.
