I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 203
Chapter 5-5. Strategy
With Tiara’s return, we finally have a rough idea of the enemy’s strength.
Now we’re in the process of formulating a strategy with that in mind.
Tiara was fussing about the monsters living in caves and dungeons, but is that really such a big deal?
Aren’t all these monsters the same?
I mean, if you just tell me their names, I have no idea what kind of monsters they are to me.
Can you tell me, please?
Me, Houen, Maria, and Tiara are standing around the map that on the table.
The knights’ piece has already been completely disposed of, and only the adventurers’ piece is still there.
The forces that can be taken out of the castle are about 2,000.
The other adventurers are too inexperienced and it is too dangerous to allow them to go outside.
Therefore, the decision was made to have them work in the supplies and medical services.
The question was how to move the troops to the front.
“The objective of the vanguard force is to take out as many AcidDogs as we can. Once that is done, we can leave the rest to the damn knights who will be defending the city.”
“I agree. It’s tough to come back from the outside and immediately start defending. There are times when we have to do it, but if the knights are there, it’s not a problem. Let’s just leave all the work to them.”
However, I don’t know anyone in the Knight Order. …… we need to think about how to move the adventurers, but I think we also need to make sure that this is how the Knight Order works. ……?
I’m afraid that if there are people who have bad intentions, they will put all the responsibility on the guild.
However, I don’t know anyone in the Knight Order. ……
I should have made friends with someone I could communicate with.
Well, we can talk about the defense line later.
I heard we have time.
According to Tiara, we have three days before the enemy gets here.
If that is the case, the priority should be how to move the 2,000 adventurers.
I have no idea what kind of people they are, so I’ll leave it to them.
“So, what are we going to do? What’s the plan?”
“The plan is basically the same. Heavy infantry in the vanguard. From the rear, the wizard soldiers will attack at once to destroy the AcidDog, which should be at the front of the line. After that, they would retreat while holding them back. We can’t afford to waste our strength.”
“What about the flying monsters? They will attack by flying, so adventurers who are good at close combat won’t stand a chance, will they?”
“I’m here, so there will be no problem. Leave it to me.”
“Are you sure you can manage it ……?”
I’ve seen Houhua’s skills at some point.
He certainly had a lot of anti-aircraft skills.
It looks like we can manage with just this guy.
He killed Aciddog before.
Though he almost burned down the village with them.
I think we can leave the flying monsters to Houen.
“If Houen is there, don’t we need to decide on a more detailed strategy?
“I don’t think so.”
“Why is that?”
“Because this guy is …… so poor in fuel efficiency.”
Well, this guy would run out of MP right away.
His skills are powerful, but they are also very consuming.
Hence, this guy is not enough to hold them back.
If we leave most of the flying monsters to Houen, then we have to deal with the enemies on the ground ourselves.
In that case, I don’t have a choice.
“W-why are you giving me so many mana potions ……”
“Because it’s pointless if you can’t keep up the fight. You must drink it when you run out of magic power.”
I give it to him with a big smile on my face.
This is a perfectly good intention, so there should be no problem.
“Guh ……. Alright, ……. I’ll take it.”
Let’s stock up a little more later.
“Tiara. Do you know how many enemies are out there?”
“Over 10,000, I think. ……. I couldn’t see them from the high ground, so I don’t know the exact number.”
“Could we count on that number for a line of defense ……? That might be tough.”
“We have the Knights, don’t we? Couldn’t we manage that?”
“I wonder how far they’ll help us. ……”
The Knights’ reputation is at rock bottom.
Well, that’s what happens when you’re withdrawn in spite of this situation. ……
It makes me dislike them too.
Anyway, the main priority of the adventurers who go out to the front line is not to die.
It’s much tougher to cut down on our forces at this point and not be able to defend ourselves.
However, while retreating, we will continue to chip away the enemy’s strength.
That is if it is possible.
If it’s not possible, then we’ll just fall back, which is the overall plan for this time.
If you ask me whether this is a good idea or not, it makes me a little uneasy.
I’m not sure if the faster and flying monsters will be able to catch us.
Moreover, I don’t know if the monsters will sleep or not.
If they marched day and night, the adventurers would be exhausted.
It’s going to be difficult for those adventurers who have returned to fight properly. ……
We can only hope that the enemy will stop their march, even if only a little.
I doubt that will be possible.
“What’s left is a trap.”
” Indeed it is. Do we have the materials for it?”
‘Unfortunately, our supply is low. We’ll have to borrow traps from adventurers.”
“It’s going to cost us a lot of money, but we’ll take it in stride, won’t we?”
” That is a trivial matter. We have to manage to protect ourselves somehow.’
Ah, a trap. ……
I wonder if ………… I could use my skills?
It would be just fine if I went to the front lines with a golem and set up [Swamp Camo] and [Water Trap] all over the place, wouldn’t it?
I wonder how far I can manipulate the golem though.
Let’s try it as a practical training.
“Hey. If you’re going to set a trap, can you take this with you? I don’t know how much use it will be.”
Saying this, I created a snake clone with [Golem]..
Naturally, I can’t do it in this room, so I make it outside the guild and let it climb up the wall to get into this room.
“What the heck is this? It looks like a snake I’ve seen somewhere. ……”
“It’s a smaller version of the earth snake. I have the skill to set traps. With this one, I can set traps in the area. But if I get too far away from it, I might not be able to control it. I haven’t tested it yet, so I don’t know.”
” Then I’ll go. Let’s say I take you with me and this little thing and not get my hopes up.”
It’s better than nothing.
I can set the traps remotely, so it’ll be fine.
It will be easier for me to focus on that.
“I have to go now.”
“Okay. Houen, please take care of the others.”
We know the time of the enemy’s arrival.
There is no time to set a trap if we don’t go now.
Houen quickly left the room.
…… I’ll be the one who stays here ……, won’t I?
I mean, dude, I think this fella is cute.
Who’s the good boi? There, there.
“…… how come you’re so quick to warm up to Ouren-san…………. Terra?”
“Did Tiara have a hard time taming this guy?”
I see. ……
My bad, I guess…..
