Record of Fate (Home World)
If Chronopolis has lost touch with the Records of Fate in Home World, why are villagers still visiting them?
Firstly, the villagers would continue to do so out of habit formed by thousands of years of attendance. Secondly, the Records of Fate still function as recording devices (Chronopolis still gathers information from them). In all likelihood, they are probably equipped with a last resort system activated in the event of losing contact with Chronopolis. They most likely give standard answers that would discourage activity that could bring El Nido residents into contact with the mainland.
