Reincarnated into a Game as the Hero’s Friend - Chapter 67
Translator: Nisarah Editor: Fleeting
Emergency dispatch order is not as powerful as the emergency royal decree. Still, it’s an order to gather the country’s top ranked people to discuss how to dispatch the knights and the nobles’ military power to the frontline as fast as possible. Only the Prime Minister and the Minister of War can issue this order other than the royal family.
If I’m not wrong, even when the demon outbreak (Stampede) happened, the emergency dispatch order wasn’t issued. In the history of the Bain Kingdom, this order has only been issued a total of 3 times. One of those times was when a rebellion happened in the kingdom. In short, the situations in which this order is issued are extremely rare.
I exchanged glances with Frenssen. What exactly just happened? Probably because of the commotion, Max and several other people came running here. That made me finally awake from my daze.
“Welner-sama, what happened?”
“I also don’t know. I’ve heard about the emergency dispatch order being issued just now. Kittel, please explain.”
Kittel dropped a bomb on us, the people who are responsible for Zeavert house’s military affair.
“A report about Valeritz being destroyed by a devil’s army has just reached the kingdom. Currently, an emergency meeting is being held in the capital.”
I, Max, and Augen let out a gasp of surprise. Barkey remained silent but I’m sure that he was as surprised as us. It was a genuinely unexpected situation.
Valeritz is a town in Fleethem County and the heart of Fleethem. It never made an appearance in the game, so there’s nothing really special about it. However, it’s still a mid-sized town in this kingdom. The number of knights that Fleethem County house has is probably not that different from the number of knights that the Zeavert house has so Valeritz isn’t a town that should fall so easily. And yet…
“What about Count Fleethem? What happened to him?”
“Currently, the information we have is quite vague so the situation of the Count remains unknown.”
Judging from Kittel’s answer to Barkey’s question, the chances of Count’s survival are probably slim. Well, we will probably know soon if he’s still alive. Count Fleethem is a member of the civil faction, so he’s Father’s ally. However, as I don’t remember his face, I didn’t feel worried about him. I just feel that the whole situation is a little strange.
It’s probably useless to ask Kittel for more information since he probably rushed here as soon as he heard the news.
“I understand. Is Father currently in the meeting?”
Since Father is currently in the meeting as the representative of the Zeavert house, the only thing I can do is to do my best as Father’s deputy and the on-site leader until further order.
“Got it. Kittel, return to the capital and tell my father that I’m waiting for his instructions.”
“Yes, I will immediately do so.”
“Barkey, the fourth team’s dispatch will be canceled until we get further orders from Father. Max, Augen, second team and third team will be on standby in the second sortie formation. As for me, I’m going to prepare a document about the patrolling procedure in case we need to leave this place and return to the capital. Frenssen, you help me.”
We won’t be able to complete the second sortie formation until we finish forming our rank but at least we will be able to prepare the equipment we need to use. Technically, we can immediately head to the capital after forming the first sortie formation. However, we didn’t do that because we needed to wait for Father’s instruction first. Still, it’s not good to keep on edge.
“Max, Neurath and Schunzel, tell the first team to form the second sortie formation and observe them closely. If there’s any problem with the first team, Neurath and Schunzel, I leave the judgment to solve it to both of you.”
While enduring my stomach ache, I appointed Neurath and Schunzel as temporary commanders of the first team in my absence. Both of them are expected to lead my subordinates in the future in my absence so this is an opportunity for them to gain some experience.
Now that we’re talking about gaining experience, aren’t I, a young student, supposed to be the one to gain experience here? Really, I guess being a noble in this medieval society isn’t a good thing. Let’s just throw the leadership of the entire Zeavert army to Max!
“As you wish.”
“Welner-sama, what do you mean by a patrol procedure document?”
“It’s a record of our patrolling procedure. I mean, the workers will get confused if the patrolling route and such keep changing, right?”
It’s just a record of bridges and other landmarks that served as a division of patrol area and can determine the route of the patrol to a certain extent. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to include how many hours a patrol will last since the clocks aren’t commonly used here. There’s nothing I can do about it.
“I see. To think that you even thought of creating something like that.”
“Well, I don’t like doing stuff just by relying on your previous experience.”
If we create a manual for every job just like what the Romans did, then even an amateur will be able to finish the job. I mean, you don’t need any originality for a patrolling job, right? The people that patrol just need to report to their superior if they found any problem in the midst of their patrol.
If I have more time I also want to create a manual on how to train the people in slums and the refugees to be the assistant of the patrolling officer, but now I have more important things to do.
The fact that this kind of training will just rely on the experience of the trainer without any kind of manual did bother me since this world is essentially filled with people who have muscle-brain. Well, thinking about that is useless.
In order to prepare for any emergencies, I make sure to bring the box containing a potion-like item and the blue box with me. It would be best if I didn’t need to use them but I have a feeling that I will need them in the future. Things are getting really unpredictable.
