“The Northeast is under attack!”
“We must gather all our strength and advance immediately!”
“Everyone, calm down. First, after fully finding out what was going on…”
There was a huge commotion going on in the imperial palace.
This was because the emperor, who was on his way out, was attacked and orders were given to prepare for a new war.
When the executives of the revolutionary army were thrown there, it was like pouring oil on a burning house, causing an uproar.
In the midst of the commotion, Eve sighed.
‘There is no windy day. If there is a little bit of quiet, a major incident will erupt.’
But I couldn’t just sit still.
She had to do her job as a player and empress of the empire.
This was also something I was prepared for when I decided to fake marry Gilroshan.
Eve began to calm the chaos by going around the imperial palace, comforting people and sometimes yelling at them.
Anyway, since this incident was a direct attack on the empire and the emperor, it was judged that maximum punishment and counterattack was necessary.
“I will unite the corps in the northeast and form a response force, with Sir Elon Royte as the commander-in-chief. “Start counterattacking immediately.”
“Yes, Your Majesty!”
Meanwhile, the eastward advance directed by Guilloshan was entrusted to Fox Buarez.
A task to create a mobile corps by reorganizing the Blue Flame Corps that was active in the Halhendra Plain.
“I will give the Marquis of Boares the authority to select the most outstanding knights. And I authorize you to place a griffin squadron under your command. “Assemble a raid party as quickly as possible.”
“yes! your majesty!”
Lastly, a person in charge of defending the imperial castle Kertion was needed.
That, of course, was the responsibility of the commander of the Imperial Knights.
“Meet Her Majesty the Empress.”
“Nice to meet you, Duke Fenn.”
Eve realized that she was seeing Shedrick Fenn in person for the first time.
It was an NPC that I had met countless times in the game < The World Where God Left >, but I would never encounter it again when I was reincarnated as ‘Eve Wyler’.
The Shedrick she knew was nothing less than a ruthless blade wielded by Emperor Bareshan.
It was definitely like that….
“I was away due to personal reasons. Please forgive me.”
“Oh, I understand. “The duchess gave birth?”
“yes. I got a daughter. This child looks exactly like Dernis. “When the time comes, Her Majesty the Empress will come and hug us at our house.”
What’s so cozy?
Shedrick Fenn was alone in the middle of the chaotic imperial palace, smiling like a person from another world.
Seeing that, Eve had to check her mind to see if she was remembering something wrong.
‘Why is this like this? Shedrick wasn’t this kind of person at all?’
Anyway, Eve gave him a mission as well.
As previously decided, Shedrick Fenn had to guard the Imperial Castle Kertion ironically.
We also had to look at the executives of the revolutionary army who were imprisoned in the dungeon under magic ban.
“I don’t need to tell you that defense is just as important as offense, right? “Please take care of me, Duke of Penn.”
“of course. I will protect Kertion and the people of the Imperial City with my whole life. your majesty.”
Shedrick Fenn’s eyes finally calmed down.
At that moment, Eve was able to understand the Sword Master’s intentions.
‘You want to protect your wife and daughter.’
Sword Master was experiencing a natural ‘character breakdown’ as he became a father.
A good idea occurred to me.
A simple, but possible way to improve the efficiency of the Shedrick pen.
‘Some NPCs receive buff effects when they are close to their family, right?’
Also known as ‘Protect your family!’ God bless you.
If the character attributes had changed, it seemed like it could apply to Shedrick as well.
Eve bowed and called the knight commander who was about to turn away.
“What if we bring the duchess and the baby to the imperial palace?”
“Yes? “What do you mean by that?”
“It’s as if you don’t have time off from work until this war is over. I think it won’t be easy to concentrate on work if you miss your family. Since the prince’s palace is currently empty, it could be used as a residence. Ah, I’m sure Her Majesty the Empress will like it too.”
If Eve knew Shedrick, he would have flatly rejected this offer.
Because he was a stubborn sword master who claimed to be a loyal dog of the imperial family.
But not now.
“Is that true? Is that okay?”
Shedrick was overjoyed.
Is it really that good?
“Sure. “I think it would be good for the Lord and the Empire.”
“Then, despite the shame, I will bring Dernis and the child.”
“Yes, go ahead and do that.”
“Thank you, Your Majesty!”
Shedrick Penn seems to have become a completely different person.
Eve was lost in thought as she looked at his back.
‘Is everything like that when you become a parent? Then I…?’
Eve, who subconsciously thought of a child who resembled Gilroshan, quickly shook her head.
You’re giving birth to Giloshan’s child.
It was such a wild imagination.

As soon as we landed in the middle of the imperial palace, Carls came running.
I ordered the dragons to rest and immediately opened my mouth.
“Report the situation.”
“Yes, the northeastern part of our empire is currently under large-scale attack by the demon army. Five fortified cities, including Denville Michaş, collapsed, and communication with most forward posts was lost.”
It means that it was annihilated.
I clenched my molars.
Carls then informed us about Eve’s actions.
She evacuated people from the area that would become the front line and organized the Capital Defense Force, a response force and attack force.
First of all, it felt reassuring at first glance since the Sword Masters were on the move.
But I shook my head.
“Why are you doing that?”
“It’s not enough. “Is that enough to stop the demon army?”
“Marquis Royt and five magic towers have joined the northeastern response force.”
“The opponent is not just an ordinary demon, but a demon god.”
“But I have no other resources. “You can’t send Director Fenn to the northeast, right?”
“Honestly, I want to.”
“Yeah, I know. “That can’t be possible.”
There was an unprecedented incident in which Certion was attacked during the coronation ceremony.
Therefore, it was difficult to remove the Shedrick pen and send it to the front.
Moreover, now a large army was needed rather than a single superman.
“We need to move the imperial alliance.”
“yes? But the Imperial Alliance…”
Calth trailed off.
I also knew why.
Because the imperial alliance is not yet complete.
In particular, agreements had not yet been completed with the northern countries that had to immediately request reinforcements.
Carls, who had been thinking for a while in his head, opened his mouth.
“Your Majesty, the neighboring countries may act by delaying our participation in the war, aiming to see us collapse. Then the empire may suffer a double whammy as it loses its army and its borders are invaded at the same time.”
“Yes, that’s right.”
That was a good point.
Bringing together the unfinished imperial alliance was all or nothing.
For this plan to succeed, a kind of ‘bluff’ was needed.
“We have to show the entire continent that we will not collapse and win this war, and that if we harbor wrongful dark intentions, we will experience hell. “Only then can we attract allies.”
“Yes, that is correct. But how do you do that…?”
A stage was needed to properly show off the bravado.
I smiled brightly at the escort driver who tilted his head.
Actually, I had a pretty good plan in mind while flying from the Revolutionary Army’s safe house to Kertion.
The plan was to make the most of what I had in hand.
“…how is it?”
“Wow, are you crazy?”
It was the highest praise for Gamedori.
I confirmed the plan, gave instructions to Kals, and then walked towards the Pale Dragon.
The first thing I have to do is ‘create skills’.
‘Of the magic and swordsmanship I have, I extract and compress all the parts that can cause damage to demons to create a new technique.’
I wasn’t planning on doing this alone.
I planned to ask for help from the greatest geniuses in the history of the empire.
* * *
[You have entered the special place ‘Cave of Succession’.]
[This place has already reached its peak of effectiveness. Nothing can be found.]
The Pale Dragon’s underground space was still enveloped in gloomy darkness.
However, unlike when I came in for the coronation ceremony, it just looked like an ant cave, a hollow space with openings and connections.
As the system message said, it seemed like I had nothing to gain from this now.
[Special skill: Singularity control]
I stretched out my hand and pulled out the magical energy like a antenna.
And I started tracing the stone walls that make up the Cave of Succession.
Then, I felt the lines carved by the ancient people.
‘A magic that temporarily summons the sleeping heroic spirits of ancestors, shows them to succession candidates, and opens the way.’
I tapped it using my magic antenna.
Then, as if an inevitable storm was in motion, blue sparks flew out, rejecting my magical power.
Defenses were put in place to prevent tampering with the Cave of Succession.
‘But there’s bound to be a hole somewhere. If there’s a problem here, we’ll have to do maintenance.’
I found a hole in the Beopjin and diligently moved my magic.
And after a while, I was able to contact the Beopjin that made up the Cave of Succession.
It was at that moment that an outcry broke out.
< How dare you do this! >
A cold wind blew.
When I raised my eyes, I saw a large heroic spirit glaring.
My great-grandfather, who was my last partner.
[The 42nd Emperor ‘Terikshan’ has appeared.]
I bowed my head politely.
“Meet Your Majesty Terikshan.”
< I asked what you were doing! Haven't you already completed the succession and ascended to the throne? But why did you come crawling back here? Are you really planning to disturb the ancestors’ sweet sleep? >
Terikshan fires back and forth, unbecoming of his size.
As expected, it seemed to be taboo for the emperor to summon a heroic spirit in this way.
But now wasn’t the time for me to think about that.
“Your Majesty’s empire is in danger.”
< Then you have to overcome it! Are you now admitting your incompetence as emperor? It’s been a few days since he came to the throne! >
“No, the human world may be completely destroyed. “Demon gods are invading the continent.”
< What? Demon God...? >
When I mentioned Demon God, Terikshan’s face stiffened in shock.
Even if he is an emperor who has been on the battlefield all his life, he has never experienced a fight with a god.
I lowered my head and spoke again.
“Hopefully, you can lend your wisdom to the latter. “It’s for the empire and the human world on the continent.”
< ...Huin, is there anything we can do? >
That question came from behind my back.
At the same time, my eyes widened at the system message that popped up.
[The Emperor ‘Lishan’ has appeared.]
The Grand Wizard, Sword Master, and Dragon Rider who founded the Baltic Empire.
The first emperor, who was mentioned as a legendary figure in the original game, was looking at me.
I never thought I would meet this person.
< Tell me. What do you want? >
