The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 146
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 146
55. Continent divided into three
A war to prevent the demon king from coming over.
In conclusion, it was no different from Ignit’s defeat.
In the end, I couldn’t stop the demon king from coming over, and the demon king came over to the continent, albeit imperfectly.
In the process, many of the elite troops were killed, and many of the master class forces that were considered the most important in the upcoming war were also mortally wounded.
In particular, it was great that Glenn was fatally wounded and could not wake up and the Duke of Wilkshire was in critical condition and was wandering between death and death.
“The situation is not good.”
After receiving the report from the giant’s fortress, Kariel’s expression hardened.
Then the commanders with him also bowed their heads with firm expressions.
“It’s not the worst, though.”
Kariel nodded slightly at Tarion’s words.
The explosion caused a huge number of casualties for the elite troops, but many were still alive.
There were a lot of people who lost their limbs and were on the verge of death, but it was important that they were alive.
“Is it possible to completely cure people who have lost an arm or a leg?”
The priests shook their heads at Kariel’s question.
Originally, there was no big problem with attaching one’s own.
But reviving something completely lost was another matter.
It is possible to restore limbs by using enormous divine power. The problem is that the arms and legs that look like that are new, so all the senses they have been learning are almost nullified.
“If you continue treatment, there will be no problems in your daily life, but… … .”
Everyone sighed when the priest finished his speech.
It was virtually impossible for the seriously wounded to return to battle.
“Is there really no way?”
“… … It may be possible with the use of taboo powers.”
At the words of a priest, Kariel smiled and nodded. Then the priests flinched and glared at the priest who had a forbidden method in their mouth.
“Anyway, it could be possible. Am I right?”
“… … Yes.”
The bishop-level priest reluctantly answered.
The taboo power they spoke of was to attach the limbs of an animal or a recently-dead human.
Attach limbs with the power of divine power and forcibly inject power to remodel them to fit the body.
It was a method created through the experiment results of the black magicians they hate. However, since the priests hated warlocks extremely, they sealed it in a taboo way over time.
However, this method also has limitations, because it was originally a method derived from experiments to create a chimera, so it did not care about compatibility with the original body.
“This method also has limitations. Rather, if it is not right, there is a high possibility that worse results will come out than resuscitation.”
As the bishop-class priest explained the problems of the forbidden method in detail, Kariel, who had been listening quietly, turned her head to look at Brion.
“It seems possible. I guess we’ll have to study it to find out if it’s better to resuscitate or a taboo method.”
As soon as Kariel turned to look at Brion, he nodded in reply.
It was not difficult to make him return to the past through the procedures and treatment methods he studied for a long time.
“There is no guarantee that all of the power of the past will be restored. Still, if it goes according to the calculations, I think 70% or more will be restored.”
“It will take at least two years.”
At Brion’s words, Kariel nodded as if that was enough.
In any case, it was meaningful as long as the elite troops were not completely useless.
“Tell the main force to withdraw from Wales.”
Everyone looked surprised at Kariel’s command.
Wald is the center responsible for the northern part of Roman. If such a place was abandoned, the war with the demons could become difficult in the future.
“Your Majesty, to fight the demons… … .”
To fight the demons, a base called Weild is essential.
From a military point of view, giving up the Weild base was a handshake. However, in terms of the picture that Kariel was drawing, it was right to hand over the Weild.
“If we refine our main army now, can we wipe out all the demons?”
“that… … .”
The commanders avoided answering Kariel’s question.
First of all, the damage was so great that it took time to recover. Above all, Ignit’s main force took advantage of the chaotic situation and Roman was provoking from below.
“I can’t fight the demons right now, but it’s a problem that only the supply line is getting longer.”
“Your Majesty, there is another problem if you withdraw to Weild.”
At the words of one commander, the other commanders nodded their heads.
“Only the demons and Roman can form an alliance in earnest.”
“you’re right. If the demons and Roman are connected, the war will become more difficult in the future.”
“The situation will also be difficult for the Allied forces on the eastern side.”
At the commanders’ words, Kariel nodded as if he understood.
In the present northern part of Rome, the Eastern Allied Forces and Ignit were blocking the connection between the Romans and the Asmodians.
In such a situation, the moment you give up Welde, the Eastern Allies will suffer a huge blow.
“The Eastern Allies will soon return to the South. We must also give up the occupied territory to the east.”
The commanders tilted their heads as if they did not understand Kariel’s words.
For them, Kariel showed them the information sent by the Secret Guard.
“The main tribes of Sandria are moving with the Roman flag.
The Eastern Allies are in danger.”
“This… … .”
“her… … .”
Finally Sandria moved.
It was also marching westward while openly revealing its alliance with Roman.
In this state, the eastern allied forces would be divided, as well as all the nomadic tribes in the north would die.
“Now it is impossible to remain in this state.”
The commanders nodded heavily at Kariel’s words.
‘This is why I tried to finish off the demons before Sandria moved… … .’
Finish off the demons, focus on Roman, and have the allied forces of the eastern countries block Sandria.
That was Kariel’s plan.
Even though he risked himself and jumped into the war, in the end he couldn’t finish off the demons. That means he needs to revise his existing plans.
“Going in threes.”
Having said that, Kariel placed her plan in the center of the table.
「Northern and Northeastern – Demons
West and South-Human Federation ↔ Center and East-Roman”
The commanders who saw this plan made a puzzled expression.
“Would the demons be hostile to Roman?”
In response to a commander’s question, Kariel showed what she had researched.
At first glance, the Romans and the demons seemed to be allies, but they were only temporarily holding hands based on their own interests.
Their main concern was ‘The Gates of Hell’.
The most likely area for the hell gate is the desert area of Sandria.
Among them, some areas where no one lives were candidates.
“What if we lock in the West and South?”
If Ignit gives up on finding the gates of hell first, it is highly likely that what remains is a battle between demons and Romans.
If that happens, will the two still be able to maintain their alliance?
It was already revealed through this war that Romans and demons were not close friends.
If he really wanted to help the demons, he would have attacked Ignit’s fortresses with all his might, not just provocation.
However, Roman only kept the demons in check so that they would not be pushed too quickly, and he only watched while taking a lot of damage.
There, Kariel was convinced.
‘The alliance between Romans and demons becomes hostile the moment we fall for it.’
Even if the alliance is maintained, it will be impossible to strike the Ignit and the Humanity Alliance in earnest right now. This is because it will create a strong defense line around the main fortress.
“What will the northern nomadic peoples do?”
“I have to bring you.”
Kariel answered as if it was natural.
The chieftain of the Golan, who dreamed of reunifying the North, was also well aware that it was impossible under the current circumstances.
After witnessing the power of the Demon King and hearing the news that Sandria’s large army is gathering, he will have no choice but to make a decision.
“Send the nomadic peoples of the north down to the south while the eastern allies are there.”
Since most of them live on horseback, there was no problem in going down south quickly.
So if they go south, the Eastern Allies will also retreat south.
“Are you going to wait until the power you lock up like this is restored?”
At Tarion’s question, Kariel shook his head.
“There are tribes in Sandria who are dissatisfied with this decision. We have to recruit them.”
Having said that, Kariel planted the flag of the Humanity Federation in a part of the Sandria area on the map of the eastern continent.
I planted a flag in an area with roughly 10 oasis.
All of these tribes were dissatisfied with the current Emperor Sandria and had their own fortresses.
“They gather around the tribes around them.”
The size of the Humanity Federation, which engulfed the entire southeastern region, was considerable.
Roman and Sandria joined hands to form an alliance of a vast size, so the union of Ignit, who unified the western continent, and the countries of the eastern continent in the southern region was also very large.
And the land of the demons who occupied the land of the frigid enough was also large.
“If you look at the whole continent, it looks similar.”
Everyone nodded at Tarion’s words.
“If your main goal is really to find the gates of hell… … .”
Will the demons really let Roman, who has joined hands with Sandria, be left alone?
It was clear that he was trying to somehow intervene in the desert of Sandria, moving east through the north.
“The conflict zone is likely to be this way.”
Sandria’s most rugged desert area.
The land of death famous for the conflict between nomads and Sandria.
If all the nomadic tribes were to fall south due to this situation, the land would be completely empty.
It was obvious that Sandria would investigate this place in earnest.
And the demons will not stand by and watch this.
“Still, we are here, but I don’t think the two will fight much.”
Kariel nodded at Tarion’s words.
“The real fight is when the ‘Gates of Hell’ are revealed. That will be right then.”
When the Hell Gate appeared, the demons and Roman would fight with all their might, and that was the timing for the Human League to move.
“You have to take a long look. The fight has already become a long battle.”
Having said that, Kariel gave an order to the commanders.
“Tell them to retreat to Balon. From the giant’s fortress to Balon is our territory. The rest of the troops clear the way to the Southern Kingdom from here.”
At Kariel’s command, everyone bowed their heads and retreated.
Now that the big picture has been drawn, the rest is for practitioners to do.
As soon as Kariel gave the order, Ignit’s main force prepared to retreat. At the same time, he notified each of the allies of the current situation and asked for their understanding.
With Sandria on Roman’s side, the other allies recognized that it would be difficult to maintain the status quo.
The problem was the nomadic peoples who united around the Golan.
“You cannot abandon this place!”
“Abandoning our home!”
Those who oppose Ignit’s proposal.
“But can you stop the demons?”
“More than anything else, if the Eastern Allies retreat, you will be surrounded by Romans and Sandria! Will everyone die in isolation?”
Those in favor of Ignit’s proposal.
Watching the two fight fiercely, the Golan chieftain was troubled.
