The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 116
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 116
43. Ignite Federation! (2)
The two leaders signed a document stating that they would enter the Federation of Ignit.
The official document will be made according to the birthday schedule, but what we are doing now is a secret agreement.
A secret pact to prepare for future disasters.
1. The problem of Hell must be dealt with by everyone in the Federation together.
2. Independent and individual actions cannot be taken unless the continental catastrophe is resolved.
3. In case of disaster, the emperor’s orders have absolute power. Therefore, those belonging to the Federation are obliged to obey orders.
A confidential agreement based on the above three items.
Instead of giving autonomy, the lord of the Iron League and the king signed this agreement to obtain unconditional cooperation in case of future disasters.
Then, as if waiting, the valet came in and took the agreement that detailed the standards for hell and similar calamities.
“This agreement will be kept by the Secret Guard.”
At the words of the valet, Kariel nodded slightly.
Then the Duke, Jayron Paul, and the Duke looked surprised.
“her… … .”
Giving tea to those who were surprised to see the Empire’s famous Secret Guard in person, Cariel gave a brief explanation of his plans for the future.
With the Ignit Federation, Kariel’s plans became more concrete and huge.
We had a solid plan beyond simply connecting the West and the East.
A large industrial complex centered on the Principality and the Port of Salem.
A trading and financial city centered on Aylon and the old western port.
And the capital of the empire, the center of all reforms.
I plan to create synergy by connecting these three.
By making the east a large-scale industrial complex, it would be possible to supply weapons immediately in case of an emergency, and in the case of Iron, he was planning to increase the volume of trade with the new continent by increasing the scale much more than now.
To that end, I created a plan that would allow me to focus on finance and trade.
“You know, I don’t have time. I plan to grow my empire several times more than it is now. In fact, even if you grow up like this, the odds are… … I think it will be low.”
“… … Are you that strong?”
At the Prince’s question, Kariel nodded heavily.
Hell’s beings came endlessly.
If you look at the empire that eventually had to collapse as a result, the pace of development was also slow.
“Keep in mind. That our goal is to prepare for disaster, not the Holy Kingdom or the Southern Kingdom… … .”
At Kariel’s words, the two men nodded their heads heavily.
Emphasizing the need to keep improving rather than being satisfied, Kariel sighed after letting them go.
A translucent window in front of you.
[The gates of hell are being built.]
The information about hell was real.
It was because it was not only telling that the gates of hell were being made, but also showing the location on the map.
“It’s Roman… … .”
An ancient temple hidden in the desert area of Roman.
Demons summoned from the ancient temple discovered by the warlocks who had contracted with demons were preparing to open the gates of hell.
Even though Kariel knew this, there was nothing he could do for now.
Through the Secret Guard, this fact was already informed to the high-ranking officials of the countries of the eastern continent, and it was also notified to the inside of Roman.
But neither of them could stop it.
Other countries in the eastern continent seemed difficult to calm their own chaos, and Roman was also unstable inside.
– They’re evil bastards. It’s like watching Loki from the mythology era.
“If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t have been short-lived.”
At Surt’s words, Kariel sighed.
According to the investigation by the Secret Guard, the power of the Warlocks was already spreading across the eastern continent.
Criminal forces partnered with them were active in each country, and Roman was the same.
One of the Roman nobles whom the Secret Guard contacted personally lost his life while digging into the Warlocks.
It was evidence that the high ranks within Roman had already joined hands with the warlock forces.
“But now that we have told the truth, we have done all we can.”
Surt nodded at Kariel’s words.
As long as Roman’s high ranks and warlocks are working together, Kariel secretly infiltrates Roman and cannot be stopped.
It was impossible to raise a large-scale army and move to that area unless the western continent was pacified.
I’ve already sent the Secret Guard, but I couldn’t even get close to it.
It was because Roman’s army suddenly packed the troops in the area densely. Considering the warlocks and demons hiding there, the time when we could solve it by sending a secret guard or shadow has passed.
– What you can do at this point is over.
Kariel sighed at Surt’s words.
If possible, I wanted to block the gates of hell before they opened, but it was not easy.
“But you should do whatever you can.”
A glimmer of hope that it could be resolved before the gates of hell open.
To that end, I was secretly unraveling information related to hell.
In the eastern continent, much of the information that Kariel knew was already known through newspapers and rumors, and work began on the western continent as well.
Using the fact that Talos had partnered with Roman, Roman was defined as the axis of evil that had joined hands with the Warlock, and the groundwork was finished to drive Talos, who formed an alliance with Roman.
In addition, since they were secretly supporting the revolutionary forces, there was a possibility that the empire would collapse from the inside without much effort.
In particular, in the case of the Holy Kingdom, there was a possibility of completely collapsing.
‘If I make good use of the rumors about Hell and the circumstantial evidence that I joined hands with Roman, I could destroy the Holy Kingdom in one blow.’
Thinking so, Kariel planted a shadow inside the revolutionary forces of the Holy Nation.
When the time comes, they are prepared to destroy the Holy Kingdom from the inside.
– If it doesn’t work even after doing this, it’s really not good.
At Surtur’s words, Kariel smiled wryly and nodded.
Assuming that everything went well, he was able to gather the power of the West Continent and cause chaos in the East Continent to reduce the power of the black magicians.
As an added bonus, it might interfere with the completion of the Gates of Hell.
If it perishes despite doing this, it is really unavoidable.
-So now, train to be recognized by Gareum.
“Is that after all?”
After saying that, Kariel sighed.
“But is it really that strong just by doing this?”
-At your current level, even a master wouldn’t be able to see it easily.
At Surt’s words, Kariel frowned.
All he had ever done was accumulating firearms all over his body and training his body to create more firearms.
However, it is unbelievable that he is comparable to a Master by that alone.
-Check with Tharion later. Or compete with Glenn, who is said to have become closer to the Master. I assure you, the moment you summon us, that little guy won’t be able to beat you easily.
At Surt’s words, Kariel looked at Surt with a look of disbelief, then nodded slightly.
It was his strength, so he could check it later.
Now it was important to establish a federation to show that the masters of the western continent were still alive.
For that reason, I was willing to take the risk of something cheesy that I would never normally do.
* * *
A square where many people gather.
The most splendid carriage in the empire stopped there.
In order to escort the man who got off the carriage, the strongest men in the empire escorted them.
Escorted by countless people, the highest figure in the Empire headed towards the center of the plaza and stood in front of the fountain, looking at the people of the Empire.
“Today is a very significant day. It’s also thanks to Jim’s first birthday after ascending the throne, but I’m even more happy to be holding hands again with my brothers from the glorious past.”
Kariel, who spoke with a smile on purpose, looked at both sides while making the imperial family pattern.
Then, Jaylon Paul and the King, who were waiting on both sides, cautiously approached.
“In the past, I was tied to the name Ignit, but Jim doesn’t want to force it. I want to respect you for living your own life while the glory of the empire was lost.”
The moment he said that, a huge sphere slowly descended from the huge airship created by the magic tower.
And only one name was written on the sphere.
“It will belong to the Federation centered on the Empire, but the Principality and Iron will have autonomy. We also want to give opportunities to small countries that dared to wage war against the Empire.”
The moment he said that, a name appeared on a huge sphere.
“Tria Freedom Alliance”
“It is an association created by respecting the cultures of each country. In this, you will be able to preserve different cultures and keep your history. Marx Weber, the current mayor of Salem, will serve as the Governor-General of Tria.”
The moment Kariel finished speaking, a map of the Ignit Federation came out of the giant sphere.
A federation formed by joining together the four divided countries.
Everyone cheered for the huge piece of land that devoured more than half of the western continent.
Before the cheers of those people were over, what Kariel had envisioned appeared on the map.
A densely connected railway in each city between the railways running from the west to the east. And countless bases were displayed, and the appearance of flying airships was created.
“Empires will prosper than they are now, and will build a stronger empire beyond its former glory.”
As soon as Kariel’s declaration was finished, the Minister of Home Affairs came and brought a document in front of Kariel. Then, Kariel, who bled through the needle on his thumb, was engorged with blood.
Subsequently, the Duke and Jayron Paul were hindered by Kariel, and finally, Marx, who was appointed governor of Tria, was hindered.
“With this, we declare that we are united under the Ignit Federation.”
Firecrackers exploded with the emperor’s declaration, and airships flew over the capital, unfolding banners congratulating the birth of the Ignit Federation.
At that moment, all the people of the empire and everyone who had newly entered the arms of the empire raised their hands and cheered.
On the other hand, there were others who looked at this gloomy. It was the southern kingdoms and the holy kingdom that had been at war not too long ago.
It became a hostile country and could not come to celebrate the birth of the Ignit Federation, but all of these images were being seen in the southern kingdoms and the Holy Kingdom.
“Reformation… … .”
The revolutionary forces in the Holy Land made a resolution while watching the birth of the Ignit Federation from afar.
They said that their country would surely achieve a revolution and create such glory.
And this was also the case with the revolutionary forces of Talos and Roteon.
Seriously, it wasn’t just them.
Roman, the only one among the countries of the eastern continent, who did not attend, was also looking at this situation seriously.
In the meantime, if they were in the position of attacking, it was because there was a high probability that they would be the opposite in the future.
However, while most Roman citizens were watching the birth of the Ignit Federation in the capital city with anxious expressions, there was a man who was watching this with a smile as if he was having fun.
“Ignit’s resurrection… … . It will be fun in the future.”
The man in the black robe muttered that and quietly disappeared into the crowd.
