I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 199
Chapter 5-1. Strategy Meeting
Now, we have a lot of work to do.
First, we need to decide on our roles.
Right here is me, Reizen, Uchikage, Alena, and Houen.
The members of the Reitei and the two members of Shadow Eye.
Maria, the guild master, has gone to the castle to explain this to the king.
We’ll have to wrap things up on our own for now.
Vid will take care of the adventurers.
He should be downstairs gathering adventurers by now.
Maria has probably gone to the castle to ask for reinforcements from the knights, so we don’t have to think about our forces anymore.
The only thing left to do is to …….
“What should we do?”
“Ouren-sama, we have Reizen-dono here. With the spirit of the earth from Reizen-dono, the maintenance itself will be completed in no time.”
“You can count on me!”
The maintenance will certainly be completed quickly.
However, who in the world would have done such a thing?
I’m not sure if we have defeated all the enemies, although we have conquered the dungeon.
Because we avoided fighting as much as possible.
There were the occasional bigger, boss-like ones, but we probably beat all of them.
Unless the mirror appears again, there is no way the three of them could have lost.
But it took a while to capture the dungeon.
By the time the three of them return to us after diving in the dungeon, the battle on the ground will most likely be over.
Therefore, it may be necessary for me and Houen to lead the battle on the ground all by ourselves.
Though, …… Never once in my life I lead troops you know?!
No, I don’t really have to do it. ……
Whatever the reason, I don’t know why I’m here, but I’m under the illusion that I’m someone in a higher position. ……
“Oh, by the way, has there been any damage yet?”
“Eh, ah! Yes! When the guildmaster checked, it seems that the monsters had not yet flowed to the top!”
“But ……, we’d better get moving, right, ……?”
“Alena is right. I’m not sure how long it will be before the damage is visible. It’s too late to go after the damage is already done.”
“That’ s what I think, too. The business should still be open. Just remember to be prepared, okay?’
Reizen, Uchikage, and Alena immediately left the guild after gearing up their preparations.
I gave Reizen the magic bag so he wouldn’t have any trouble with his luggage and collecting materials.
That bag was very useful.
So what’s up next I thought to myself.
In fact, what am I supposed to do?
While I was thinking about this, Houen suddenly started to take charge.
“Kreis, Tiara. Could one of you do some scouting? I want to get a good idea of the enemy’s strength.”
“Then Tiara, I’m counting on you. Could Kreis check on the adventurers who were heading off to kill the orcs? I believe it was reported that they may have been monster scouts. It might have something to do with that.”
After hearing the instructions, the two immediately leave the room.
Houen, what’s happening with you?
Why are you so familiar with this particular area?
I mean in this guild.
Seems like you haven’t been here for a long time.
You have saved me a lot of work, thanks to you.
You know, that guy …… who said the orcs were probably the scouts, that was me who reported it, wasn’t it?
That receptionist was a total pain in the ass.
“So ……, what am I supposed to do?”
“I don’t think you can do the guild’s administrative work at the C rank level, so I’m going to have you actually go out into the field of battle.”
“There is something aggravating about it, but I’ll leave it at that for now. She said something about defending the city.”
“That’s why we’re going to start thinking about the formation of the troops right now.”
After saying so, Houen began rummaging through Maria’s room and pulled out a large map.
It seemed to be a map of the entire kingdom of Salettana, and it was written in a great deal of detail.
He spread the map out on the table, weighed it down in the corner, and prepared a number of pieces.
He placed them at the guild’s location and in the southwest.
It seems that these pieces represent the units and strength of the guild.
There seem to be various types of pieces: adventurers, knights, high-level adventurers, etc.
The panels representing our enemies are oval-shaped, like stamps.
“Let me explain the structure of the guild. First, here is the Adventurers’ Guild. And here is the west gate.”
The distance from the west gate to the Adventurers’ Guild seems to be a little far.
Since they couldn’t use this place as a base, Houen decided to use the knight’s camp in the west as the base.
He placed pieces there and scattered a large number of enemy pieces to the southwest.
“Unfortunately, there is no southwest gate in this country. So when we go out, we have to go out from the west gate which is the nearest one. However, since we still don’t know the number, distance, or even the type of enemy forces, we can’t be sure of the number …….”
After Houen said that much, he began to move the pieces.
He moved the knights’ pieces and the high-level adventurers’ pieces out of the city walls and pulled the adventurers’ pieces inside.
“The experienced adventurers and knights would move forward, while the inexperienced adventurers would defend. But it is the job of the adventurers to carry supplies. Depending on the situation at the front, we will try to provide a route for supplies and, if necessary, reinforcements.”
“But is it really okay to put only the strong ones out there? We need to keep some of them inside, don’t we?”
“It will be alright. I and Ouren would be there.”
He seems to have a great evaluation of me, but …… I might not be that useful, though ……?
I’ve never been in a battle of this magnitude before. ……
I don’t think there’s much I can do on my own.
But Maria is with us, so we’ll be fine.
If that’ s the case, I’m relieved.
“……Oh, speaking of which.”
‘What is it?”
“I’m not sure if adventurers and knights are on good terms in this country. I have the impression that knightly orders are rather stiff, so I thought they might not be a good match for adventurers, who are free to operate as they please.”
“Exactly. They are not very harmonious.”
“….. You sure about that? You really want to put them in front together?”
“What are you talking about? That’ s why it’s alright.”
Heck, what kind of nonsense was that?
It’s impossible for people who don’t get along with each other to join hands and defeat the enemy!
Of course you can’t use people who show that kind of sentiments in battle!
But Houen seems to be nodding his head repeatedly, saying that it would be fine.
Seriously, I don’t know why that’s okay.
“Because we’re going to compete.”
…..Is this going to be okay?
