The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 140
53. Defend the supply line!
As Kariel ordered, the letters were delivered to the countries of the eastern continent except for Roman.
“Ignit will focus on ordering the demons.”
This meant that the allied powers had to take care of blocking Roman. Naturally, the Allied Powers had no choice but to curse Ignit.
Even the Allied Powers, who at first insulted the decision, were forced to keep their mouths shut in the letter that followed.
“It seems that the summoning of the Demon Lord is imminent. The Demon King’s minimum force is estimated to be higher than that of a Grand Master.”
Legendary Grand Master.
Is such a being summoned?
At that moment, the war seemed hopeless.
Therefore, the Allied Powers could not say anything to Ignit while they were screaming in pain.
Because I saw the sincerity they wanted to drive the demons out of this land.
「The giant’s fortress finally collapsed. Ignit’s next destination is not the Roman capital, but the gate of Pandemonium.”
“70% of Ignit’s power has crossed the East Continent”
“Ignit’s military minister: Thought to leave the minimum troops for national defense and send them all to the northern region of Romania.”
In fact, most of the forces Ignit could operate were focused on wiping out the demons.
Then, all the warlocks and demons, who were trying to slow down the advance of the empire as much as possible, left for the north.
It was there to prepare for the final stand.
“What is the situation?”
“There are no big problems.”
At Tarion’s report, Kariel nodded slightly.
“What’s left now is the supply line?”
Tarion handed out the report to Kariel who muttered that.
“This is the result of confirmation from the South.”
Kariel, who received the report from Tarion, immediately examined its contents.
“It has been confirmed that the divine power is effective. However, except for the priests of fire, the effect of the holy power of the other priests is small.」
A smile formed on Kariel’s lips after reading the report.
As he had expected, it was confirmed that the divine power was also effective for the beings in hell, so it was time to carry out the plans that were waiting for the results to come out one by one.
“Put the demon hunters into the supply ship as scheduled.”
“I tell you to gather all the Fire Priests sent to the North to the supply ship. Dealing with demons is left to other priests.”
The planned plans were carried out one by one.
Most of the shadows were put in to protect the supply line, and that wasn’t enough, demon hunters and fire priests were also put in.
But Kariel had no intention of ending this.
“A part of the Knights of the Capital Defense Forces are also removed and put in.”
Looking at Kariel, who did not believe in them, Tarion said with a determined expression.
“Only demon hunters and fire priests can stop it.”
“know. However, the damage should be kept to a minimum.”
Tarion bit his lip at Kariel’s words.
Knowing the strength of the Black Moon, Kariel sent the Central Army to the basic supply line to prepare for an emergency.
However, some of the Knights of the Capital Defense Force are also dispatched.
That meant the Shadow and Demon Hunters, the Fire Priest, and the Central Army and the Capital Defense Knights would join forces to stop the Black Moon’s attack.
“It’s not that I don’t believe in shadows.”
“… … I know.”
All the shadows, including Tarion, knew how much Kariel cared for the shadows.
In order to ensure that the shadows who always suffer behind the scenes get a fair price, they are integrated into the intelligence department. Although he couldn’t reveal the identity of each agent, he wanted to record them in writing and treat them fairly.
Not only that, but they received the best support from all special forces, from weapons to welfare.
That’s why the loyalty of the shadows to Kariel was great.
Such beings are doing their best to save themselves.
All the shadows gritted their teeth at the reality that destroyed their pride. And among them, Tarion, a native of the shadows, was also included.
“Please also send your message.”
Tarion’s eyes looking at him.
Seeing the resoluteness that dwelled there, Kariel realized that he had no choice but to allow it.
“… … okay. Go and show the strength of the shadows.”
“I take orders.”
Tarion made a direct move to restore the pride of the shadows who had lost face.
With that alone, the morale of the shadows reached its peak.
He made a promise to defeat Roman’s black moon and become the strongest special forces unit.

As all the shadows left Tharion for the last time to the east, Ignit’s army also began to advance north using the giant’s fortress as a base.
The main force slowly began to move north, and the troops that followed slowly ascended, creating a supply line centered on the giant’s fortress.
“Because even Roman will know that it is difficult to stop us.”
Duke Cletta, who was next to the words of the sun sword, said:
At first, it was a war that was fought while hiding humiliation. But now, those feelings are somewhat gone.
Warlocks, demons, and even beings called Hell’s Creatures appeared on the board, so the events of the past could not be important.
I don’t know if there is any hope for the country to revive, but that has already been lost. It was because the people of the southern kingdoms were already cheering themselves as they had become a real ‘imperial nation’.
“There are only seven masters. I will not attack such an army recklessly unless they are fools.”
At the words of the Duke of Pires, the masters in the vicinity nodded their heads.
The problem is the supply line.
In order to solve this problem, I tried to make a separate unit consisting of two masters.
However, Kariel ordered the main force to rush to the north more quickly. If the two masters were missing, the army of demon commanders, warlocks, and demons could be caught in their footsteps.
That’s why Duke David and Marquis Sicario kept Roman’s air raid in check, and the others quickly moved north.
Glyun also prepared for the attack of the black magician by creating a detached unit.
Perhaps because of this, Ignit’s main force was able to quickly climb to the point where the gate opened without any restraint.
「Occupy 3 Roman fortresses!」
「Arrived in the northern part of Roman in 15 days. Join the Northern Army of the Empire in the north」
“Moving to the point where the Demon Gate is located. The coalition of nomadic tribes will also join it.”
Finally, the Ignit army went up to Roman’s northern region.
Then, the demon army that had been hiding until now appeared. At the same time, Roman also appeared leading part of Roman’s main force to attack Ivan’s back.
And that was blocked by Duke David and Marquis Sicario.
Ignit’s main force stopped advancing with the Roman and Asmodian armies on both sides.
However, taking advantage of that gap, the nomadic troops aimed at the rear of the demons.
When a strange standoff situation occurred where each other gave their backs and could not move, the black magicians who tried to gnaw at the northern army took advantage of the gap and attacked.
「The divinity of the empire defeats the warlocks!」
The majesty of Glen spreading across the continent.
As if waiting for the warlocks to move, Glenn’s detachment appeared and literally wiped out the Northern Army.
Then the situation began to lean towards Ignit, even just a little bit.
However, the war did not immediately break out.
As if waiting for something, there is only an ambiguous confrontation between Roman and Ignit.
“What’s left now is the moisturizing line?”
Muttering that, Glenn looked down south from the nearby Mountains of Giants.
A long supply line.
Ignit’s main force will move after confirming that the supply lines are safe.
‘It is inevitable to fight a war in a situation where supply is unstable.’
Knowing this, all commanders waited for the outcome of the battle on the supply line.
After completing the work of setting up and connecting the major bases, the giant’s fortress finally began to transport a huge amount of goods to the north.
“Is this the start?”
Cariel sighed after receiving the report that the goods had moved in the capital.
“You should be able to stop it… … .”
Cariel clasped her hands and looked out the window with an anxious expression.

Just then, the maid opened the door and entered.
“… … Your Majesty, I have done what you have ordered.”
Kariel gave a small nod to the words of the head chamberlain.
“There will be a disruption in the supply of magic supplies for a while.”
“Regarding that, the Minister of Internal Affairs and the Minister of Finance are handling the matter. He said he would report back today.”
After answering the report from the chamberlain, Kariel silently looked out the window.
I felt a little stuffy today.
Seeing that expression, the chamberlain lowered his head and said,
“For the time being, you must stay inside the emperor’s palace for safety.”
“… … i get it.”
At Kariel’s answer, the chief of staff looked at Kariel once more with the eyes of a hawk and then went outside.
Because of his decision, he couldn’t even dream of leaving the building for a while.
Nevertheless, Kariel felt much better.
Although the number of knights in the imperial palace was reduced by half, the radius of action was reduced, and the wizards were also recruited in large numbers, which caused a setback in the production of magical goods, but it was better than waiting anxiously.
“I did everything I could.”
In fact, he has done almost everything that Kariel is capable of doing.
All that remains is to wait for the results.
“If only the demons were dealt with, they would have to move on their own.”
-okay. Now I don’t have to be scared.
Surt laughed at Kariel’s murmur and said.
The servants still regarded Kariel as a sickly being and overprotective, but objectively, Kariel was strong.
-Are you the head of a warlock? Even if he shows up, it won’t be easy to kill you.
“okay. With this kind of power, even when fighting the beings of Hell, it can produce meaningful results.”
Surt grinned at Kariel’s words and said.
There was a reason why the most stubborn knight of the Imperial Palace broke his stubbornness and obeyed Kariel’s orders.
Because Kariel showed the maximum of his power.
– But you know? It’s still a long way from being recognized by Garum.
At Surt’s words, Kariel nodded slightly.

Just as they secretly sent out their power to prevent anything from happening in the capital, those wearing black masks finally appeared from the supply ship.
“Blast them all.”
At the command of the one wearing the black mask, everyone nearby bowed their heads and ran toward the supplies piled up in the temporary base.
At that very moment, arrows and memorizations flew towards them.
“… … Are they shadows?”
When Ignit’s shadows appeared, the head of the Black Moon who had ordered the attack pulled out his sword.
“If you can’t do it with your skills, it’s the quantity… … .”
“If I twist it, more of you will come.”
At the words of the shadow, the man of the black moon laughed.
“I still think so.”
The moment he said that, the eyes inside the mask glowed red, and a gray aura began to flow around him.
“Eat it away.”
Dozens of monsters with mouths named ‘Living Maw’ began to attack the shadows all at once.

Just then, the red curtain that blocked the mountain demons.
The moment the holy fire appeared, the red arrows flew at the black moon all at once.

“Divine power? Are these arrows demon hunters?”
The man of the black moon who muttered that, gnashed his teeth. Contrary to expectations, I felt that this raid on the supply line would not be easy.
