The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 169
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 169
64. Last War!
The great emperor finally got the job done.
He finished off Roman, one of the culprits who brought the East Continent to this point.
At the same time, they started an operation to organize the remnants of the past from hell by making them criminals.
This news was first known by the allied forces who came later.
「The Great Emperor of Ignit! Destroy the Palace of Hell!”
“The great emperor who defeated even the gods!”
「Kariel Frederick Von Blazer! His status has now surpassed that of the first emperor!”
Knights praising the great emperor of the western continent who saved the eastern continent.
However, in the western continent, there were also those who opposed it.
There were some who did not express it outwardly, but were opposed in spirit to the word that they surpassed the first emperor, who was revered as the god of Ignit.
However, even they changed their mind while watching the video filmed on the airship dedicated to Kariel.
Koo Goo Goo!
The tower collapses with an explosion.
And the appearance of the goddess returning to the ghosts.
Seeing this, the people of the Empire could not even cheer and stared blankly.
Kariel’s performance from the huge video sphere in the capital of Ignit was truly overwhelming.
“… … .”
“Wow… … .”
“That one… … Our emperor?”
Manipulating the giant dogs, giants, and wolves that existed in the age of mythology and oppressing the gods was truly astonishing.
The appearance of Kariel, who showed so much power that the masters Tarion and Akelio could not even dare to dare, surpassed the stronghold of the first emperor, which exists only in records.
In particular, the pleasure of destroying a huge god was enough to make him proud that he was a citizen of Ignit.
“Who dares to doubt ‘God’!”
Now, even when there were articles that openly called Kariel a god, no one doubted him.
It was the logic that there is nothing strange about being called a god because he is a being who has overcome God.
Of course, some scholars say that the existence that Kariel won is not the real God, but that logic has not already worked for the people of the Empire.
A hero who fully bloomed in a desperate situation.
It was a common story about defeating enemies and restoring peace around him, but people in real life desperately needed that common story.
However, there was one problem.
The point is that great heroes never come home.
The people of the Empire cheered and went wild, but the faces of those who managed the house were getting darker because of the landlord who only went outside.
“Your Majesty doesn’t want to return?”
Everyone was silent at the question of the minister.
Everyone knew why.
「To settle this chaos, the first thing to do is to deal with the remnants of the past that have spread across the eastern continent.」
For this reason, Kariel directly led the allied forces and moved to deal with the remnants of the past.
Even in order to properly fight the Demon King, the remnants of the past and the gates of Hell that keep opening because of them had to be firmly closed.
The problem is that those numbers are too many.
“I think your Majesty… … .”
The Minister of Finance didn’t say anything at the end of his speech, but everyone in Daejeon knew what was going on behind the scenes.
‘You’re not going to return to the Imperial Palace.’
Everyone was thinking the same thing, and they were in trouble.
During Kariel’s absence, he is the current leader of Ignit, who is said to have managed state affairs well.
Without the emperor, there would be no way for the Crown Prince to run the government properly, and the difference in political power between Kariel and Luffiel was too great.
Above all, there was a big difference in charisma.
“I will bring Your Majesty myself.”
Amidst everyone’s sighs, Rufiel stood up and spoke. Prime Minister Winston, who stared at him, said,
“Your Highness, you must keep your seat.”
“My younger brother persuaded me to go… … .”
“Then, who will pay for the overdue payment?”
At the chancellor’s question, Rufiel’s mouth closed like a shell.
“In that sense, I’m useless… … .”
“Prime Minister, don’t play tricks.”
This time, Rufiel blocked the chancellor and widened his eyes.
Luffyel shows an unexpected appearance.
Luffiel, who laughed hard every time he tried to hold on to himself, will come out with such a strong attitude?
‘Your Highness is thinking of retiring too.’
The Chancellor, who noticed Rufiel’s intentions at once, grinned.
The two people who longed for retirement glanced at each other and sighed.
No matter what they tried to do, it wouldn’t work unless Kariel came back.
That’s why I put my heads together with the substitutes.
Bold issues abounded, but they had already been pushed back.
The Daejeon meeting, which was longer than ever, was discussing only one pending issue.
「Method to restore His Majesty the Emperor 1」
「Method to restore His Majesty the Emperor 2」
「Method to restore His Majesty 3」
The heads of the ministers, who were more fierce than ever, created a number of methods, put them together, and came up with a plan to pressure Kariel to return.
* * *
Meanwhile, Cariel wanders the eastern continent smiling, unaware that the ministers are plotting plans to ruin their precious retirement dreams.
– So when are you going back?
“When the demon king moves.”
Kariel smiled and answered Surt’s question.
Surt shook his head in response to his answer.
– Why don’t you just play now?
“I’m not ready yet.”
Having said that, Kariel thought of Glenn.
He returned with more power than the current Demon King’s previous life.
Perhaps all of its original strength has been restored.
A demon king who is more powerful than in his previous life.
On the other hand, Glenn’s power, far from getting stronger, did not reach the level of his prime.
Of course, the time of reaching the Grand Master is much faster, but there are still many things that are lacking.
“There should be some minimum standards.”
-Ummm… … .
“And the Marquis Sicario is also worth looking forward to.”
In his previous life, he was Marquis Sicario, who died before he even tried to roll it, but this life was different.
Perhaps, following Glenn, another person who crossed the wall could appear.
So I had to wait.
“You have to get the perfect timing.”
Now that we don’t know how powerful the demon king will be, we had to wage war at the perfect timing.
-You need to know that. As we become stronger, they become stronger too.
I have already received reports that the demons are getting stronger while hunting the remnants of the past.
That’s why Kariel also ordered the Imperial Army to hunt down the remnants of the past.
Because if they find a way to become stronger through the remnants of the past, mankind could too.
The resurrection of the remnants of the past did not necessarily have a bad effect on the continent.
「The power that disappeared after the age of mythology has returned!」
「I found an ancient magic that was put into practice.」
“Ancient heroic spirits resurrected from the remnants of the past.”
“The disappeared beings began to appear. What the hell is going on on the continent?」
Clearly, the remnants of the past are fallen beings.
The power that polluted hell was polluting the continent.
However, the influence of their inner power seems to have influenced something that has since disappeared since the age of mythology.
Fairies, which had been hard to find for hundreds of years, appeared, and spiritual beasts inhabited by spirits began to appear everywhere.
Due to their appearance, things like 「Ancient Spirit Art」 and 「Ancient Spiritual Contract Law」 were able to develop.
In addition, through ancient witchcraft, the range of use of magic has also been expanded.
However, these still needed research, and even if applied immediately, it took quite a while for humans to deal with the spirits and spirit beasts.
On the other hand, there was a way to immediately upgrade modern magic to the next level.
Utilization of ancient runes obtained while hunting remnants of the past.
Runes that can dramatically reduce complex magic circles using runes.
Once this was completed, it was unknown how many steps the Empire and mankind would develop. That’s why Kariel and other humans became frantic to hunt the remnants of the past.
The demons are also developing through the remnants of the past, so one day their territories will overlap.
‘The man-horse war will only begin then.’
Thinking so, Kariel sighed.
There was still time.
That’s why he had to find a way for the strongest human beings, including himself, to develop at the master level or higher.
Finding lost technologies is obviously important.
But the most encouraging thing was the method of mana management.
The mana aging and mana refining methods that have continued to modern times are the origins.
Remnants of the past, those who rose to the ranks of ‘gods’ were showing how to use the power of pure mana in different ways.
Perhaps through them, you will be able to overcome the master’s wall more easily, and you will be able to find efficient ways to become a grand master who has been in action since the age of mythology.
“Your Majesty, we have arrived.”
Kariel, awakened from her thoughts by Tarion’s words, looked at the lightning storm in the distance.
“It is strong.”
A huge bird that was revered as a local deity.
The thunderbolt emitted by the biggest and most powerful thunderbird was falling from the clouds by pure magical energy.
A storm that was not easy to approach occurred, and it spewed out lightning powerful enough to scare even the Master.
“It is pure power… … .”
Kariel smiled at the corner of her mouth as she watched the Thunderbird use mana in a completely different way from humans.
Since Kariel had done a lot of research to fix her body in her previous life, the use of the Thunderbird’s power that she’s showing now was very interesting.
It wasn’t just the Thunderbird.
If we could record and study the mana management methods of those who were revered as gods, mankind would be able to develop further.
Perhaps a god could be born among humans.
However, there was no way the demon king would wait for that.
“Let’s start hunting.”
The shadows and knights bowed their heads at Kariel’s command.
At the time Kariel was hunting the divine beings, the Demon King also killed the remnants of the past with overwhelming power.
But then, a tectonic shift occurred on the continent.
The remnants of the past that had an impact on the continent through individual actions so far began to migrate on a large scale.
From giant dragons of enormous sizes that have not been seen in modern times to giants and even giant birds, they have moved to a certain point.
With the great movement of remnants of the past, the silent mountain range of giants began to shake.
Volcanoes erupted all over the mountain range as if they had endured it so far, and a huge mountain began to rise from the center of the continent.
And the remnants of the past gathering towards it.
As they gathered, numerous floating islands began to appear around the island that rose exceptionally high.
And those floating islands began to gather and form one huge floating continent.
A sight as if the land of the gods expressed in the age of mythology had returned.
“Is it Asgard?”
Murmuring that, Kariel looked at the land beyond the clouds reflected in the video sphere.
“What about the Demon King?”
“It started moving.”
To Kariel’s question, Tarion immediately answered.
He is the demon king who started this war to hunt God in the first place.
Finally, a god he can kill has appeared, so he will move towards it without waiting.
However, the problem was that it happened in the Mountains of Giants.
“We cannot put off the war any longer.”
After saying that, Kariel smiled bitterly.
I didn’t even know if I should really start a man-man war.
The Demon King will head to Asgard, and in the process, the Demon King’s army will attack mankind in the way, so war can no longer be avoided.
“after… … Let’s go, to the Empire.”
Tarion and Achelio bowed their heads as if they had waited for Kariel’s words.
