bodies, analyzing ancient remains, identifying the locations of valuable stone mines, the quantity mined, the types available, and summarizing the customs of each region, it appears that there is a “person in prayer” at the center and each of the “Blue Dragon”, “Black Turtle”, “White Tiger”, and “Vermilion Bird” gods are located in the east, west, south, and north respectively.

It appears that the Blue Dragon represents Jupiter and the character “dragon” represents the praying person.
This planet is said to have a strong affinity with the sun.
Although I am not familiar with the religion of the Dragonate Kingdom, it seems that Randy-sama entrusted the valuable “precious stone” to Hillian, the priest of the Blue Dragon shrine and one of the priests of the Four Deities religion.

Like celestial bodies, compatibility can also repel one another.
If Hillian was not deemed a suitable priest of the Blue Dragon, Celgyu may have prevented him from handling the stone.

When I compare the comprehensive map of the continent that Gauche showed me once and the association of the “Four Deities” based on celestial bodies in my mind, there are indeed remnants that once replicated the power of those celestial bodies and precious stone mines that I desire to align with them on the land.


“…I find you even more extraordinary.”

“The prayer inscribed here is, in other words, a priest receives a ‘baptism’ by burying a ‘holy fragment,’ which is one of the ‘sacred relics,’ in the forehead.
Through this act, inanimate objects, particularly valuable stones with power or areas where such power is concentrated, can be comprehended… or I can’t seem to find the right words to express it.”

Hillian paused his work for the day as the sun was setting behind the window.

“To attain that understanding, a priest-in-training must undergo five years of training…”

“I am not a priest-in-training.
I do not reject the Four Religions, but I have no intention of joining either.
I find it intriguing that something like this exists and I can accept it easily.
I simply understand and reason behind it, but I do not blindly believe in the religion or gods.”

A crease appeared between Hillian’s brows.
He wasn’t seeking understanding from me, but only tolerance.
And even though I can understand and tolerate, I don’t hold a blind faith in this religion or deities.

I simply tolerated it.
The reason I was able to accept it without any objections or reservations was because the scriptural text was written in a manner that aligned with my own thought process.

I prefer not to have something I cannot comprehend implanted in my mind.
And the prayers, they don’t seem like a means of communicating with a deity, but rather with something else.
I struggle to fully embrace concepts like miracles, compatibility, and ‘human attributes’ derived from the positions of celestial bodies and birthdays.

Followers of the Four Gods religion consider all of these occurrences as miracles from the gods, and their beliefs are documented in the scripture.
The priests, as part of the miracle, are said to have the ability to communicate with non-human entities by possessing something mystical within their bodies.
That is likely the language of the Four Gods.

When I brought this up with Hillian, he listened quietly and let out a sigh of defeat, uttering “That’s just how it is…” in a bitter voice.
