A different path from the original
“Hey, are you crying? “Are you still crying?”
“…don’t make fun of me. Lowering.”
“why? “Am I making fun of my own will?”
“No, that’s not it!”
“You said that, right? Are you saying you will follow my will? The fate of degradation! The path of degradation! Heungheung!”
“Ack! “Please give me that kind of will!”
Carls got angry and I burst out laughing.
When I looked closely, I saw that Tirbaen, who was walking ahead of me, was shaking his shoulders.
It looks like this girl is having fun with me teasing Carls, right?
Anyway, ‘Pig’ succeeded in persuading ‘Bear’ and ‘Oriole’.
Kals and Tyrvaen have decided to aid my cause.
A system message was output.
[‘Tirvaen Sui’ has joined the party.]
[‘Carls Silion’ has joined the party.]
Unlike the Vengeful Priests that are currently accompanying them, they have been recognized as part of the party.
I was worried that I would have to complete companion quests, but fortunately that wasn’t the case.
‘Well, these two people are originally from Gilroshan, so this would be correct.’
We started walking through the forest again.
We are going together towards the teleport gate connected to Aurax and Elon Royte and the special forces guarding it.
Of course, Carls was dissatisfied with this uncomfortable companionship.
There was no way it would be pleasant to walk side by side with those who had crossed swords just three days ago.
Moreover, these priests were the ones who attacked me and tried to assassinate me.
However, fortunately, there were no significant casualties during the attack.
The priests broke the security guard by lighting a smoke screen and shooting stimulants at the horses of the carriage to create a commotion, then quickly tied up Giloshan and jumped out.
That was it.
Of course, Kals and Tyrvaen quickly noticed and chased the priests, causing a fight, but since their initial goal was to prolong the time and cause confusion in the chase, there were no major casualties.
‘Yes, if someone had died at that time, it would have been difficult for things to turn out so well.’
Thanks to that, Carls was now obediently following Varmilo DeMarque’s procession, even though he was grumbling.
The strange companionship of the empire’s b*stard 3rd prince and his group of assassins from the revolutionary army.
If things had gone according to the original scenario, this event would never have happened, but somehow it ended up like this.
To be exact, this is what happened when I inhabited Giloshan’s body.
“Well, by the way, you’ve become quite agile, haven’t you? “Do you have plump cheeks?”
Carls looks at my face closely.
“Just try hiking like a crazy person with those black men. Where only the cheek fat goes in? “If I do a little more, I think I’ll be able to enter the underworld, right?”
“ha ha ha!”
Carls held his stomach and started laughing.
The guy who was crying a little while ago even started clapping.
“Don’t laugh, man. “If even ugly hairs grow on your beautiful buttocks, it will be a loss for the empire.”
“yes? “What do you mean by that?”
“How sad must it be for the countless noble ladies who aim for your white buttocks? That’s the empire’s loss. is not it?”
“Ugh, don’t say dirty things!”
We were chatting in a friendly way, almost like brothers.
In the original, the relationship between Gilroshan and Kalth was actually like that.
If you look closely, the third prince and his knight were distantly related, and they grew up together from a young age, so they were like real brothers.
And now my feelings were similar.
I don’t know exactly how this guy feels, but I was really happy to see Carl’s.
‘Because this is my assault leader, Carls Reuth.’
I’ve always seen this face on the monitor, but to see it in person like this!
In the original work, certain NPCs could be made into the player’s minions by working on their favorability and completing special quests.
Carls was a prime example.
I’ve always used Carl’s a lot.
Befitting its brilliant nickname ‘Knight of the Dawn’, this guy was a tank with decent performance.
If you raise him properly by giving him experience points, he will be very active in the later part of the war.
So, I often picked up Carls and took him with me…
‘I never thought I’d meet him in the form of a real, living person like this.’
It’s a nice feeling to meet a close friend from school after such a long time.
So, I was chatting away with Carls without feeling the slightest bit of awkwardness.
In comparison, Tirvaen’s case was a bit different.
‘The process of making this little witch a guardian is a bit difficult.’
Of course, I didn’t use it all that much, but it wasn’t as good as Carl’s.
So it was nice to meet you, but it didn’t feel very close.
Rather, for some reason, a corner of my heart feels sore.
It was as if I had reunited with someone I owed a debt to.
‘Why is this happening? It’s not like I have any feelings for this kid.’
…That’s not really the case.
Tirvaen now looks like an old witch, but in fact, it was the opposite.
In fact, he was just a 19-year-old kid.
‘If you’re a senior in high school, aren’t you a kid?’
Although he is an adult by the standards of this world.
In any case, from the perspective of a modern person with the mental age of thirty, he should have been called a child.
‘Although I am currently hiding my true appearance with disguise magic.’
Rumors of an old witch over 200 years old?
This was because witches named ‘Tirvaen Sui’ had a tradition of passing on part of their magic and name memories to their successors through one-person transmission.
From generation to generation, ‘Tirvaen Sui’ have inherited the same appearance and have also inherited the fears and rumors surrounding them.
‘Is it because the character was treated poorly in the original work?’
As I looked at Tyrvaen’s back, I suppressed my aching heart.
There may be no law in this world, but it still feels like meeting the judge in my heart.
Suddenly, Carls opened his mouth.
“Not only is your face slimmer, but you also have a lot of energy, so I feel really good. “The situation is serious now, but… it feels like we’ve gone back to the old days.”
“A long ago?”
“Yes, when we were in the juvenile palace.”
It was a type of school attended by children of the empire’s high-ranking nobles.
“Your Majesty back then was truly intelligent. “All the courtiers loved you, the children of the nobles tried to become even a little closer to you, and your Majesty the Emperor also cherished you.”
…This is something that doesn’t appear in the game.
Could it have been so?
Considering the treatment and contempt Gilroshan received at the time of the original work, it was a past that was difficult to imagine.
“What if our empire had not revered magic? It would have been a little different if magic wasn’t considered a basic skill for everyone. Perhaps, if that were the case, my Majesty would also…”
Carls swallowed his bitter words.
I nodded quietly.
‘He was a prince who was highly anticipated, but he had no talent for magic at all, so he was treated poorly and he had no choice but to become more and more crooked.’
When a bird flying high falls, the pain is that much greater.
That’s the way the world is.
“Don’t hold back on things from the past, Carls.”
I opened my mouth casually.
It hurts me too, but that’s not my past, right?
“Look now. It doesn’t matter anymore what kind of kid I was back then. Everyone has already forgotten, right? No one remembers the 3rd prince from his time in the Boy’s Palace. “Except you.”
Carls looked like a wounded loyal dog.
For a guy who had beautiful memories of the glory days, telling him to forget the past must have been a bit harsh.
But the past is the past.
“The important thing is now. “There are people targeting me, and I have no way to fight them now.”
If you stay idly by, your head will be cut off like Gilroshan in the original.
So you have to move.
You have to move and survive.
“Luckily people don’t know me that well.”
Carls looks like he’s wondering what that means when the reputation of the third prince is shaking the continent.
But I smiled.
“There is such a thing.”
To be honest, I am not confident.
I don’t have the confidence to remain as the 3rd prince.
“Carls, remember this one thing. “I will come back qualified to survive.”
It doesn’t matter what the past is.
The important thing is now.
“It’s going to be a little different now. okay?”
I am more confident than anyone else in mastering < The World Forsaken by God >.
So, even if you say you’re a b*stard + a b*stard, I won’t leave it like this.
There is no need for anything.
Even if you take a slave gladiator instead of an archmage card, there are plenty of next opportunities.
“So spread your shoulders Carls.”
As I grinned, Carls smiled faintly.
“…Yes sir. “I believe it.”
Having said that, the reaction is not as dramatic as when I was first persuaded.
You must be thinking that this is impossible deep down, right?
Well, I understand.
Honestly, I think so too.
‘What can you expect from a waste product that can’t even be separated?’
Still, Carls felt that it was enough to impress him that his master, such a great idiot, had changed like this.
But I shook my head.
“No, Carls. “Now is not the time to adjust to the gradation and be impressed by each and every detail.”
“I said something roughly earlier, right? “Why do I have to leave the Empire and enter Aurax?”
“yes. “You said there was a traitor inside the imperial palace.”
“Yes, not just one or two.”
Carls looked in disbelief.
Things like Gyeongmu Minister Jairic Moss were just the tip of the iceberg.
As the scenario progresses, there are countless people between the empire and the revolutionary army who betray the camp just for their own benefit.
I knew them all.
‘My cute experience points.’
You should eat generously.
“Marquis Elon Royte, who guards the northern part of the capital. “You know that well, right?”
“Yes sir. The Marquis of Reuth is a close friend of my father. One of the Empire’s three greatest magic swordsmen…”
At this point, Carls Reuth only knows his biological father like this.
Just a friend of his father and one of the guardian gods of the empire he respects.
It will be a long time in the future that he will learn the secret of his birth.
For a moment, his handsome expression became distorted.
“Are you saying that the Marquis of Royt also betrayed you? Sir, he is not that type of person! The Marquis is a true soldier and an honorable warrior who loves the empire more than anyone else…!”
I shook my head.
“I didn’t say the Marquis of Reuth was a traitor.”
It is somewhat true that he is a true soldier and an honorable soldier.
And that was our problem.
“The Marquis will be blocking my path up ahead. Because that’s how the order was received. Just like you did earlier, he will wipe out the revolutionary assassins and take me to the imperial palace.”
That is to fulfill my duty as a knight commander holding a sword.
But if I return to the imperial palace, it will be dangerous.
Rather, you should go to Aurax.
“Then what should I do? Are you going to ask for the Marquis’ cooperation just as you persuaded me and Sir Sui?”
Are you going to use snout techniques on Elon Reut too?
I quietly tilted my head.
“well. Will my story make sense to the Marquis? What do you think?”
Then Carl’s expression darkened.
As a fellow warrior and knight, he had a intuition that the Marquis of Royt’s case would be a little different.
That was my thought too.
“I don’t think even the seeds will work.”
The superman was not that great.
It was obvious that the Priests of Vengeance would be annihilated in an instant and I would be taken to the imperial palace without a move.
“If I rebel, you won’t just leave me alone, right?”
In fact, the Marquis of Royt did not have very good feelings towards the 3rd prince.
Since I had a long-awaited opportunity, I might dig up dust on a rainy day.
“Then what are you going to do? Is there another way?”
Carl’s expression did not look good, as if he was imagining a tragedy.
But I asked him again.
“Carls, you have two knives, right?”
“yes? “Isn’t that right?”
“Give me one.”
I opened my hands.
“But to a lowly knight, a sword is like a lover…”
“Do you have two lovers? Didn’t you see this guy like that? Are you promiscuous? uh?”
An expression of confusion as to why a man who is not good at swordsmanship would ask for a sword.
Anyway, I took what Carls was wearing and looked it over before nodding.
< An Ordinary Knight's Sword >
[Weapon] A sturdy sword issued to knights. But there is no particular effect. Well maintained by someone.
“It’s a good sword. This should be enough.”
“…You don’t really intend to pass through the Marquis with your sword, do you?”
A warning look in his eyes telling me not to dare to allow such senseless imagination into my head.
But I shrugged.
“Don’t knights have their ways?”
And gamers have their own ways.
Over the past few days, I’ve confirmed that my method works.
The steep ridge ended and a gentle trail appeared.
The destination is not far away, but…
‘I’m just getting started.’
