Ascendance of a Bookworm

Post by Lord Myne » 01 Jul 2020, 14:33

@Momogari

part 6 spoiler & some ideas on how the story/plot might progress.
  Spoiler:  
I think your right, I do believe they are all part of the same faction. It would seem there are several factions. Wives and husbands don't seem to belong to the same factions either. I believe they are after Rozemyne's otherworldly knowledge more then they are after her magic. After all others who possessed magic were simply made into obedient slaves. Her magical power helps boosts her abilities. I'm sure the Saint thing is partially to cover her otherworldly knowledge.

I believe one of the reasons why she was adopted as a daughter to Sylvester is because they'll be able to take more advantage of her abilities as she'll be taught that magic that creates structures. With such magic and her advanced knowledge the things she could create would be far more advanced than anything that came before. I don't think they want anyone to know she's capable of that. They want to hide that talent, so they are pushing the Saint thing to cover it up. In other words they want others to believe there is a different reason to why Myne was adopted by the Arch Duke, and it wasn't for her knowledge but for her Saintly behavior and outlook.

Ensuring Rozemyne's health will also ensure and improve her ability to pass on that knowledge and utilize it.

One other thing, I've started to get the idea ever since the idea of the Royal Academy was mentioned and the fact it isn't in Sylvester's domain, Slyvester is just a high ranking noble that belongs to a larger country and he serves a King or Queen, perhaps an Emperor/Empress, though I get the idea it's a King/Queen though. Though the government is probably very much a Feudal one though. The King/Queen might be more of a figurehead and the Arch Dukes actually run everything. But it also means they can go to war with each other and obtain more land from each other as well.

There also seems to be a lot of Nobles. I'd go as far to say that nobles were probably just simply those who possessed mana initially and later became nobles, all of them. Now that's how the country is divided. Many of the nobles for instance seems to be poor, better off then the poor of the commoners but all the same financially challenged. The Noble part of the city also only has Nobles as guards, no commoners. Seems like it's more of a divide in citizenship instead of nobility and commoners. Such a type of country that has 1st class citizens, the nobles, 2nd class citizens those who are allowed to live in a city, and 3rd class citizens like the travelling Trader whose dream is to purchase citizenship, which is initially a 3rd class citizen.

Yup! I alreaday at that point also. @Grace Mellody I kind remeber Syl saying somehing like that (or Ferdy… may be?)

@Killer Wolf howmany Vols. did you bought?? what do you think now?
from part two (Vols 4 to 8th) they contain more details hasn't adapted in the Anime

  Spoiler:  
Intersting, I am not sure about Wives vs husband being in different factions... but is clear that
in Noble society, women and men are quite like two worlds.
Where men can crse some barriers. That's why they want to asure Mayne in Elvira & Syl wife faction

Other things is definitely their Duchy is part of a biggest country, and for suer the 'nobles purge' that made priest to retorn to the Noble society has a lot with tha factions (internal) wars... may be for the power of ruling lands, or be conected to Kings family...?
also, if they Syl and Co. aren't at the same faction of that King... two choice cut happen, fight with Mayne's power to rule the country, or suport anoher pretendant to the throne. that's probably the initial thought of they ... or just as you say, asure Mayne's knowledge to grow status, and power to be close with the king's faction (also to profit in economics) ...
Also has not mention jet... but that 'Nobles Purge' cut be a war between other country far than other Duchy, which cut also be. 'status war' between duchies. for power and resources.


Also, villagers and farmers, are part of that 3rd "citizenship" ...
