The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 138
52. It hurts, but stabbing again! (2)
The connection between Roman and the Sandria Empire?
I’ve been thinking about what it could be.
The mother of the current Roman emperor was a Roman nobleman.
So, does Roman’s royal family have anything to do with Sandria?
It wasn’t either.
“I guess you should say that Roman’s family also has something descending like us, right? That it had to do with Hell.”
Tarion and the chamberlain nodded at Kariel’s question.
“The connection between Sandria and Roman… … . What is it?”
“I will investigate.”
Tarion went outside with the words that he would investigate.
Then, this time, he gave an order to the chamberlain.
“Tell me to keep an eye on Sandria. It seems likely that the Roman Emperor and his tribes have something to do with Hell.”
Cariel who gave the order to the chieftain smiled.
A simple alliance would have made contact with the powerful tribes of the Sandria Empire.
However, it made contact with weak tribes on the border.
“You mean the feeling you showed me on purpose?”
Apparently, Roman also knew that Ignit was building a dense surveillance network in Sandria.
Nevertheless, taking the risk and moving like this was nothing like revealing it on purpose.
“What is it?”
He did not know what the Roman Emperor was intending.
Obviously he was seeing something he couldn’t see, and he had a strong sense of pulling himself for it.
So far, I have not been able to grasp the big picture of the Roman emperor.
Still, I was able to get one thing right.
“Are you trying to use Ignit?”
After muttering that, Kariel fell into agony.
What if the Roman Emperor had something to do with Hell?
If it had connections with the ancient tribes of Sandria, the current situation could be explained a little.
As a result of continuing to dig Sandria by the chief chamberlain, they didn’t like the demons very much.
That fact was evident from the fact that Sandria, who was almost certain to be related to Hell, still wouldn’t join hands with the demons.
Rather, he was reluctant to let the depraved energy of the gods worshiped by the various tribes of Sandria.
Is there any connection between them and the Roman Emperor?
“I don’t know what kind of picture I’m drawing, but I’m sure it’s trying to attract me.”
There was a possibility that the Roman Emperor and Sandria were also looking for or preparing something just as he was looking for the gate to guard the gates of hell.
‘As Surt said, is it like the key to finding the gates of hell? Then, the Roman emperor used me… … .’
Cariel thought about it that far and gave a serious expression, but shook his head.
Then it couldn’t be explained why terrible beings had popped up on the continent in previous lives.
“It does not make sense.”
After muttering that, Kariel sighed.
We haven’t come to a conclusion yet, but with this incident, we can know something for sure.
1. Emperor Roman keeps secrets like himself. It is most likely related to hell.
2. You need yourself in the great world that Roman draws.
3. The Roman capital is in danger.
I didn’t know what his grand plan was, but one thing is certain: there is a high possibility that a huge trap is hiding in Roman’s capital.
I don’t know what kind of trap it was, but there was no reason to let it fall.
“The day we advance to the Roman capital must be after swallowing the entire country.”

Just because Ignit’s main force was tied to the giant’s path didn’t mean there was nothing they could do.
Currently, the place where Roman is sick is the northern area.
Originally, the way to inflict the most damage on an opponent is to repeatedly attack the sore spot.
For that purpose, Kariel was planning to continue sending the remaining troops to the north.
After a while, Tarion hurriedly brought a letter from the north.
“your majesty! A letter from the north.”
“The Golan has almost conquered the northern plains.”
“Then we have to pay back.”
After saying that, Kariel smiled.
Already at Kariel’s order, the Ignit Empire ordered the work of further extending the railway that had been extended to the Kingdom of God, linking it to the northernmost tip.
At the same time, he ordered the construction of an airfield where non-aircraft ships could land at the end of the territory of the former castle.
Now is the time to use it.
It was difficult to provide huge supplies around the southern seas each time.
However, it was difficult to cross the Giant’s Mountains.
So the idea was to cut a road north from the middle of the canyon in the cold.
It was a difficult task, but it was possible because it was a low terrain among the Giant’s Mountains, and now it can be realized.
At Kariel’s order, all the ministers were summoned to Daejeon.
“Finally, the time has come to carry out our secret operation.”
At Kariel’s words, all the ministers nodded with excitement.
In the plan made at the beginning of the League of Humanity, a plan after the nomadic peoples were united was also established.
A plan to support the nomadic peoples who are dealing with the demons.
It included a method of transporting large quantities of goods over the Giant’s Mountains.
And today, I was finally planning to reveal the operation in earnest.
“The current Roman has no ability to contain the cold canyon area. The same goes for demons.”
Having said that, Kariel looked at the map erected in the corner of Daejeon.
“If the nomads keep the demons in check, it will be possible for us to completely devour the frigid canyon. If so, we will be able to hand over supplies directly to the nomadic peoples who have descended from here.”
After saying that, Kariel smiled.
“At the same time, our military will also be able to move over and create a stronghold.”
While the demons are fascinated by the nomads, Ignit’s army will build a fortress across the canyon.
Through the fortresses on both sides, the path of the canyon was more stabilized and preparations were made to aim for the Demon Realm Gate.
Currently, the most important thing for both Romans and demons is the expansion of the Demon Realm Gate.
To make the demon king fall.
That’s the point, but what happens when the situation comes under threat?
“The military commander. What will happen after that?”
“For now, it seems that chaos will arise in the Roman and Asmodian camps.”
“Then will the chances of conquering the giant’s fortress increase?”
The military minister, who had been pondering for a moment at Kariel’s question, bowed his head and answered.
“Assuming some of the warlocks’ powers fall to the north, the giant’s stronghold will fall.”
“Good. What then?”
“If the Roman forces abandon the fortress and gather in the capital, from then on, our allies will also be able to actively interfere in the eastern continent.”
Having said that, the military minister explained the scene in which the Ignit army, which occupied the Giant’s Fortress and the Cold Gorge, built a large-scale supply network in the western area of Roman and put pressure on it.
At the same time, if the allied forces of the countries of the eastern continent also flock to Roman, Roman will lose all land except for the center.
“The problem is after this.”
It is good that Ignit has entered Roman territory.
However, in a situation where most of the elite troops survived, Ignit had no choice but to be at a disadvantage.
This is because the distribution network is long.
Moreover, it is not known what the demons are hiding.
“Does that mean that if you move too quickly, you might end up in trouble?”
“… … That’s right.”
As a military minister who always looked at the strategy conservatively, he seemed to have the worst situation in mind in the future.
So did the other substitutes.
It was not easy to give an opinion because I thought first of all what kind of damage would be done to the allies.
In this case, the emperor himself had to make a way.
“If you had to choose between the demons and the Romans, what would it be?”
In response to Kariel’s question, the military minister and other ministers expressed their opinions with each other.
For the troops, it is more convenient to attack the nearest Roman capital.
Because they can join forces with other countries.
It can also save the cost of the supply network, so it will be convenient for the Minister of Finance or the Minister of Home Affairs.
However, from the position of the military base, he wanted to attack the demons first.
“It would be neat to finish it before the Demon Realm Gate expands further.”
Dealing with the Demon Realm Gate before the Demon King appears.
Some ministers and bureaucrats agreed with this opinion of the military minister, and some of the ministers agreed with the opinion that it would be more convenient to push Roman cleanly and move north with a multinational army in one shot.
In a situation where the two sides were in sharp confrontation, everyone looked at Kariel.
“We’ll start with the Demon Gate.”
The Minister of Finance’s expression worsened at Kariel’s decision to raise his hand to the military minister.
This is because a huge amount of money would be consumed to connect the supply network to the north of Roman.
“From a small point of view, it would be right to occupy the capital of Roman, but if you can stop the Demon King, this is more of a business. and… … .”
Kariel looked at the ministers, blurring the end of his words.
“When attacking the Demon Realm Gate, Jim also wants to have his own family.”
The ministers’ eyes widened at Kariel’s words.
The reason he made this decision was to make sure that there was no hell gate in the terrain where the demons were.
If it was confirmed with Surt’s help that the gates of hell were not in Roman’s realm, things became much easier.
‘At that time, Sandria can be completely defined as the enemy.’
It was time to think so.
“your majesty! No!”
“Absolutely not! If anything happens to His Majesty’s prison, the Empire will immediately fall into chaos!”
“your majesty! Please believe in the generals who went to the battlefield! They will do well!”
Instead of being afraid to speak out, they oppose it.
Even the chieftain, who usually obeys Kariel’s orders, knelt down and objected.
Needless to say, Tarion was against the union.
“On the eastern continent, we will move after the safety of our luggage is secured.”
“You never know what danger lurks.”
When Tarion spoke as the representative, everyone knelt down and shouted.
“Please let me know!”
Seeing the servants who objected that absolutely no, Kariel sighed a little.
I was against it for my own safety, but I couldn’t say anything, so I took a deep breath and fell into trouble.
After being silent for a while, Kariel opened his mouth.
“There is something Jim needs to go and check himself. It is difficult to check if it is not luggage.”
“… … Does it have anything to do with hell?”
At Tarion’s question, Kariel nodded slightly.
“It is still too dangerous.”
Seeing Tarion opposing once again, Kariel turned his gaze to the ministers.
They, too, bowed their heads and objected to the union, and in the end they had no choice but to take a step back.
“Let’s think about Jim’s family a little more.”
Saying so, Kariel broke the meeting of the day.
However, what was planned was carried out step by step.
The nomadic peoples who have already pushed into the vicinity of the Giant’s Mountains.
As most of the demons and warlocks moved to keep them in check, Ignit finally moved to occupy the frigid canyon.
In the meantime, the allied forces did not stand still.
It was because some of the dragons and demons escaped to the north and started a massive offensive to take advantage of the gap.

“It must be very painful for Roman.”
Looking at the giant’s fortress, which has not changed much yet, Southern Commander Rokhan murmured.
Because of Ignit, which stabbed the most painful part, Roman’s solid defense began to shake.
No matter how much Ashtar was, the current situation was inevitably painful.
“The warlocks are starting to slip away.”
When the officer who was watching with the magic tool hurriedly reported, Rokhan nodded slightly.
“Let’s get ready to move too.”
Roman started shaking, so there was no need to delay any longer.
The fort had to be demolished at once before they were stable again.
When Ignit’s large army started to move again, Roman’s formation was taken aback.
“Don’t panic! Stay calm and prepare for enemy attacks!”
Worst case, attacks come from all sides.
Even in such a situation, the veteran commanders tried their best to protect Roman.
But things weren’t too good.
The first cracks in their solid defenses were in the southern fort.
This is because Brighton, the king and master of Wingsar, broke down the castle gate and entered inside.
“Pierced! Everyone get inside!”
It was time for the Confederates to gain momentum and move inside.
“That… … what?”
At King Wingsar’s question, everyone looked at the red whirlwind created in the castle.
And on that day, a piece of news flew through the Ignit Capital via an urgent report.
“The Confederate Army’s defeat”
