the capital of the empire.
A strange kind of emotion was being exchanged in the imperial palace.
“…say it again.”
“Yes, I sent you a letter from the Vice Tower of the Five-Colored Spire this morning…”
The Emperor and the Commander of the Imperial Knights sat across from each other.
The two people were exchanging cold feelings of life and fear.
Of course, the one who showed his will to survive was Emperor Bareshan.
“What on earth does that mean? “Is everyone talking nonsense because they want to tear me apart?”
“I’m sorry, but as I said earlier, the report from the Five Colored Spire was…”
“Yes, yes! Can’t find Sir Siora’s whereabouts? But it’s already been 10 days? Did you really report that to me? Is that something like that?”
“…I also apologize for saying this, but it is true. your majesty.”
The expression of the emperor, who was sitting diagonally on the throne and resting his chin, became distorted.
“This is truly absurd. “My apology box is so worn out that it almost disappears.”
The five-colored spire is the emperor’s strongest magic tower.
But the number one person in the magic tower disappeared without revealing his whereabouts?
It was absolutely not normal.
‘It’s no wonder His Majesty is so angry.’
Shedrick Fenn, who understood this as the emperor’s knight and secretary, could only remain silent.
The emperor frowned for a while and then sighed.
“Well, you didn’t do anything wrong.”
Instead, he tilted his head and asked back.
“Then do you know why it happened like that?”
“Please don’t make me say it twice. The reason why the report on Roxanne Sciorra’s whereabouts was delayed by ten days! Other than asking what that is.”
Is it really okay to tell the truth?
‘He will be even more wrathful.’
But there was no way to hide the truth from the great wizard.
The knight commander answered as he knew.
“He said he told his aides not to look for him because he would be away for a week. It is said that instructions were also given not to report this situation to His Majesty.”
At his words, the emperor frowned and clicked his tongue.
“Tsk tsk, this is amazing. “You dared to hide from me that the Steeple Master was away for a week?”
“And even though the deadline has passed, the Steeple Lord has not returned. Was it only then that he belatedly reported it to the imperial palace? Is that something like that?”
“I think so. your majesty.”
Emperor Bareshan pressed his temples and was lost in thought.
“I can’t help it. “I will dethrone the vice-lord of the Five-Colored Spire (cut off his head and hang it) and send all of his aides to the dungeon.”
“And Prismatic Spire Lord Roxanne Sciorra is wanted for immediate arrest or death…”
Vareshan said casually, as if he was choosing a lunch menu.
“Please include a message that if the tower owner does not return within three days, all members of the Mind’s Eye School, of which she is the leader, will also be sent to the dungeon.”
“…Are you talking about guilt by association?”
“Okay then, wouldn’t it be either the parties involved finding the owner of the tower or the person himself coming back quickly?”
It was such merciless treatment.
The one who wronged the emperor was Roxanne.
‘Everyone involved with her has seen blood.’
Shedrick Fenn had no choice but to bow his head in despair.
But Bareshan’s words did not end there.
“And there is another one.”
The Emperor added, waving his finger.
“Regardless of the outcome, the spire will be replaced. We need to host the ‘Magic Tower Meeting’ as soon as possible. So, the Duke should write a summons and send it out.”
Duke Penn kept his mouth shut.
‘…The Magic Tower meeting.’
This was more dangerous than the terrible stories the emperor had told before.
Magic Tower meeting.
It was a huge organization made up of all the magic towers of the allies that were working with the empire.
First of all, 3 towers in the empire.
And two towers from the Northern Alliance.
From the Confederate to the other two towers.
The ‘Magic Tower Conference’ was created by the owners of the seven towers and the emperor of the empire.
‘In the grand scheme of things, it can be said to be a union of all wizards under the Magic Empire.’
This is the strongest power possessed by the emperor of the empire…
It was a group that could be said to be the most powerful force on the entire continent.
It was a very strange thing
for His Majesty to personally convene a meeting of the Magic Tower…’
A proposal to replace the five-colored spire?
‘…Yes, according to the rules of the original Magic Tower meeting, it has to be that way.’
Appointing a new magic tower owner outside of special circumstances such as war.
This was only possible by holding a full meeting and receiving consent from more than half of the attendees.
This was a regulation to prevent the enormous power of each magic tower from being misused.
‘It’s a rule that is worthless to His Majesty.’
Emperor Bareshan had regulations, but they were only for mana.
The process of appointing Roxanne, the current owner of Five Colored Spire, was also similar.
At that time, Bareshan completely ignored the Magic Tower meeting as if he had never even heard of it.
‘Instead of holding a meeting, you just unilaterally notified me.’
In this way, Roxanne Sciorra was installed as the owner of the Five Colored Spire.
…tyranny possible only because he is the emperor.
Although they were openly ignored, none of the tower owners raised any objections.
The emperor was their master and held the reins.
He says he will do it.
There was no servant foolish enough to set up a fishing net while invoking regulations for no reason.
‘Your Majesty is the one who plays with the magic tower owners like toys.’
But suddenly they’re calling a general meeting?
‘You must have something else in mind.’
It could only be seen that the emperor clearly had other intentions.
‘It’s not like we’re really bringing in the Magic Tower lords to replace the Five-Colored Spire Lord…’
What on earth are they planning to do by convening the Magic Tower meeting at this point?
Could it be that they are trying to pool their power and use it somewhere?
As Giloshan wrote in his letter, a great war to subjugate the entire continent…?
‘No, let’s not think about it for nothing.’
The duke, who did not dare to guess the emperor’s intentions, immediately put aside his thoughts.
In fact, the biggest problem right now was not Roxanne Sciorra’s absence.
There was still one more important item left on the agenda.
“After your Majesty, I have something to tell you in detail about the antagonism between His Highness the Crown Prince and His Majesty the Second Prince.”
It was a report on the battle for the crown prince that had suddenly reignited recently.
“Is this a fight between Lukashan and Lapishan?”
“Okay, good. I will listen. “Tell me.”
The emperor, with an interesting expression on his face, nodded.
“Currently, the two of you are forming your own faction and working to recruit ministers within the palace.”
Shedrick began to talk.
“I think the starting point of this incident is the 3rd Prince, who is currently abroad…” It
was a clear report that the conflict in the imperial palace sparked by Gilroshan was becoming more and more intense.
“…For this reason, we believe immediate action is necessary. That is all.”
After the knight commander’s report was completed.
Vareshan laughed sharply.
Then he quietly nodded.
“For some reason, the Duke, who is a pacifist, is saying something that appeals to me? “It’s really been a long time coming, isn’t it?”
“…I am very grateful, Your Majesty.”
“Okay, good. “Do as the Lord wants.”
Duke Fenn bowed his head deeply.
What he proposed to the emperor.
“From now on, I will allow you to control not only the Imperial Knights under your command, but also the Imperial Guard Division, the Capital Knights, and the Capital Defense Division.”
Vareshan’s cool gaze moved.
“Take this opportunity and neutralize the entire Lapishan camp. Especially if it is someone holding a sword, disarm him…”
“If by any chance you resist, you can be summarily executed on the spot. Whoever it is. Whether it’s Elon Reut, Fox Buarez, or Carls Silion…”
It was a dangerous look.
“Even if it’s Lapishan. entire.”
“Do you know what I mean? Peacock?”
Could there be a word with a stronger meaning than this?
Shedrick Fenn bowed his head once again.
“I will follow your orders, Your Majesty.”
Permission was granted.
So now, as the emperor’s sword, I planned to do the things I should do one by one.
‘For this peace that seems unstable at first glance but is actually solid.’
Shedrick Fenn, the Empire’s swordmaster and leader of the Imperial Knights, was a man who acted solely for that purpose.
* * *
Genere completely froze.
‘What on earth is that?’
Because I couldn’t believe it even after seeing what was happening in front of my eyes.
But I soon had no choice but to admit it.
It was a dragon.
A being that some of the warriors had stated that they had seen earlier, but the small chieftains just laughed it off.
Gener and other beast warriors instinctively felt that it was not an illusion or delusion.
A large object that flies so lightly that it looks like a butterfly or cloud.
‘How can such a huge body fly so lightly?’
It was such a light movement that anyone would have no choice but to ask that question.
But there was something else that was even more incomprehensible.
[Special Skill: Opening Dragon Eyes]
It was red eyes.
The dragon’s red eyes were mysterious in themselves.
Although the pupils were long and erect like those of a reptile, the eyes were more fascinating than creepy.
‘It’s beautiful, but on the other hand, it’s so scary that I can’t face it…’
Genere swallowed dry saliva and trembled.
The bright red eyes seemed as if they were burning everything that came into their gaze.
But the owner of the eye was complaining.
-It would be nice if I could just use breath again! Did I spend too much earlier?
It was unfortunate that the breath’s cooldown was not enough.
“are you okay. “Rongan alone is enough for now.”
Vinokharass Dragon Eye was currently generating an enormous wave of mana.
As a result, the flow of magic power in the intestines was causing a rough backflow.
As a result, the beast tribe warriors’ internal energy was fluctuating and they were even experiencing strong delirium.
“What is all this?”
“Let go! “Let go!”
Many invisible hands.
They hesitated and took a step back as they felt something firmly grabbing their ankles.
Surprisingly, some who were of high skill even succeeded in drawing a sword.
Vinokharas, who found outstanding people among them, warned Giloshan.
-Dad, prepare for battle. Once the mental barrier is completely broken, the attack will begin.
Some run away.
Some sat down.
However, some people rolled their eyes and jumped towards the Blue Flame Knights.
Among them was Gener.
Eikir stood still, resisting fear.
The elder of the Snow Lake tribe rushed at Giloshan as if he were a wild beast.
Gener was also a completed warrior before becoming an elder.
The twin swords that were pulled out in an instant were extremely threatening.
However, Gilroshan quietly clicked his tongue at that sight.
“Wow, it’s a double sword?”
The words of those who have wielded dual swords since ancient times were not very good…
[Attack Technique: Sea Sword Type 5]
Heviode, which contained the techniques of combining fire and fire, flashed.
And the next moment.
[You have defeated the beast tribe elder ‘Gener’!]
[Your level has increased!]
A welcome system message came to mind.
It’s time for another new card shuffle.
