Simon and the knights nodded with an exclamation.
‘It’s a more outstanding troop than what I thought, heard.’
Even so, Simon and the several people had never seen a small scaled troop like Amaranth troop utilize strategies actively.
Amaranth troop resembled a huge stream of water.
The battle ended with the victory for Amaranth troop.
Simon gulped dry saliva.
“Count Lancephil. Amaranth troop is really amazing.”
His thoughts got out like that.
One warhorse ran towards Simon with the sound of horse steps.
The troop flag that was in his side instead of the spear fluttered with strength.
Io, that was looking at that, said in a small voice.
“That’s the troop commander of Amaranth troop, Roan.”
“It’s a really majestic look.”
Simon nodded with a satisfied expression.
Meanwhile, ROan reached in front of them.
As he pulled the reins, the war horse stopped softly.
Roan got off the horse and quickly stuck the flag on the ground.
The flag of the troop got extended finely and emanated a confident spirit.
A mannered look and at the same time, roughless.
“Troop commander Roan of Amaranth troop greets prince Simon Rinse.”
A voice with strength.
His expression was kind of stifled.
‘To be able to meet him this fast.’
A strange light appeared in his eyes.
‘Simon Rinse. The first prince of the kingdom and…..’
His heart beat.
‘The person that some day becomes the mad monarch.’
After Roan returned to the past, one of the things he had to do was stopping the mad monarch.
‘Originally, the one that should become the next king.’
But in the end, his seat got taken by his brother.
‘And got crazy.’
After that he killed his supporter and grandfather Bradley Webster and caused a commotion in the northwestern region of the kingdom.
And as his original abilities were outstanding, the commotion couldn’t be easily suppressed.
With that reason, even after the geniuses Pierce and Ian appeared, Rinse kingdom get up on the ranks of the empire because of the internal disturbances.
‘If we only didn’t have the mad monarch, we could have combined the northeastern region of the continent.’
Because of that, Roan was planning to stop Simon on going crazy.
He wasn’t someone a mere troop commander and a sinner at that could meet easily.
But in his past life, he had gone to Pavor castle instead of this place.
‘Certainly, the future changed a bit because of me.’
He hadn’t expected today’s encounter at all.
“The defenses are really outstanding.”
Simon, that was checking at the villages fences, watchtower, etc. nodded with an amazed expression.
“That’s an excessive compliment.”
Roan hurriedly ordered his thoughts and bowed.
“No. It’s really outstanding.”
Simon looked at the fences and watchtower once again and put a satisfied expression.
The two people inspected the village that had the HQ of the troop located in it for quite a while.
‘It’s a mere countryside but the road, houses, etc. is being built really well.’
The defenses weren’t the only thing that were good.
Most of all the expressions of the people was really bright, even when it was a dangerous situation where monsters were going wild.
Simon nodded with a satisfied expression.
“You are maintaining the region of Tale really well. The expressions of the people is good.”
“I just did my best on my job.”
Roan replied humbly and bowed.
Simon kept checking the houses and the camp after that.
“You said the village still doesn’t have a name?”
A lightly asking question.
“Yes. As it’s been created just recently, everyone is calling it the central village.”
At Roan’s question, Simon pondered for a moment and then put a bright expression.
“How about Mediasis?”
It meant that it was the center and the base.
Roan didn’t have a choice anyways.
“It’s an excellent name.”
He smiled faintly and bowed.
Simon looked at that Roan and then asked.
“Roan. This subjugation is a really important thing for the nobles and for me. It’s something we must raise a big merit.”
A really serious expression.
For Simon, it was something he had to pour everything in.
“The northern region of Tale is no different than the front line. If we completely block this part, the organization of the rear doesn’t become that difficult. Followed by that, our army is planning to subjugate the monsters with this point as the base. But we don’t know much about this region.”
Some kind of expectation was behind his voice.
“Compared to that, you raised up really incredible achievements as the responsible for this region. So I…….”
A moment’s silence.
Simon caught his breath and continued saying.
“Do you have any good thoughts or plans regarding the subjugation?”
It was a question he just threw, but it was a really impressive thing.
This was a really unprecedented thing.
But Simon was really calm.
‘If you just have the ability, you don’t differentiate between slave or sinner.’
This was Simon’s thoughts.
Roan organized his thoughts for a moment and then raised his head to look at Simon.
“I don’t know if it’s good but I have something prepared.”
A calm voice and expression.
He spread one of them and placed it on a wide table.
At that moment, Simon put a surprised expression.
In the other hand, Roan nodded with a calm expression.
“Yes. That’s right. It’s the map of the region of Tale.”
The identity of the map was a map made by the agency.
Silence fell between the two people.
Because you could suffer great damages if it was leaked to another kingdom.
Roan looked at the stiff expression of Simon and said in a low voice.
“The value of a map in a battle is really big.”
He spread the second scroll.
Likewise, it was a map of Tale, but the different thing was that it had several dots and arrows in it.
“The dots are the places the subjugations occurred and the arrows are the records of the movements of the monsters.”
His finger moved busily.
“Based on the results of the analysis, the monsters are moving to the north through the mountain ranges spread from west to east. Aside of that, they tend to move through the road between Mediasis village and the plains of the west.”
Simon nodded unconsciously.
The dots and arrows were of big strength on grasping the entire flow of the battle.
Roan spread the first map again.
“We set up several traps, obstacles and camps with the gathered and analyzed information as the background.”
At that moment, a low exclamation came out of Simon’s mouth.
On the first map, there were records of camps, traps and bases for the troop, and those places were on the moving routes of the monsters.
‘He wasn’t just fighting blindly!’
Simon unconsciously gulped dry saliva.
He got amazed once again at Roan’s abilities.
‘It’s a waste to just leave him as the commander of a single troop.’
He got certain.
Roan saw at the stifled expression of Simon and bowed.
“I know what the prince is worried of. And because of that, we are managing it so this map isn’t taken outside.”
Simon nodded with a low exclamation.
“If we have this map, it will certainly be of great help.”
A positive reaction.
“Yes. It will be of great help on the dispatch of troops and movement.”
At those words, the eyes of Simon got loosened up softly.
“Good. Making a map as you please is a punishable thing, but as the situation is like this I will forgive you. No……..”
His mouth slightly rose.
“Actually, I think that it is really amazing. Because if we only have this map, we can perfectly control the region of Tale.”
Simon patted Roan’s shoulders with a proud expression.
‘Whew. Did it turn out well?’
Roan let out a short sigh.
The making of a map was that much of a problem.
But he thought that when the mad monarch Simon saw this in this situation, it would be of help for him.
‘He was a really reasonable person and someone that valued personal strength before he became the mad monarch.’
Because of that, commoners with great ability could get an important job without the courting of the nobles.
“Roan. Shall we return now?”
He had finished observing.
“Yes. I will take the lead.”
Roan quickly took back the maps and after he put it in his chest he started to walk.
The two people arrived in the conference room of the HQ where several nobles were gathered.
“DId you finish observing?”
Io smiled brightly and asked.
Simon glanced at Roan once and then nodded.
“He was really amazing.”
At those words, several nobles nodded.
Simon sat on a seat Io prepared.
And Roan stood humbly at the back of the nobles.
“Just like everyone of you knows, I decided to subjugate the monsters of the north with this point as the base.”
At Simon’s words several nobles nodded.
“Because of that, this region of Tale became more important than anywhere. I can’t give the commanding right of this kind of place to anyone.”
He paused for a moment and then put a faint smile.
Then, Simon’s sight moved to Roan.
“Roan. I’m planning to give the commanding right and strategy right to you.”
Roan and the several nobles let out low exclamations.
Because they knew the weight Simon’s words had.
‘Prince Simon entrusted ROan with the key of an army!’
Io bowed with a grateful expression.
But the protests of several nobles was too fierce.
“Prince. Roan is a sinner. To entrust the key of an army to someone like that. That can never happen.”
“Although it’s only limited to the region of Tale, but to give that to a mere commoner…… Some nobles may have to follow his orders.”
Almost teary expressions.
Simon put on a humorous face.
‘If it wasn’t only for the competition of the throne, I would have already thrown them away.’
Insect like bastards that live off by sticking on the family without any abilities.
But now was a situation that he had to lead even those nobles.
‘If you are saying that he’s a sinner……..’
Simon shook his hand and made the nobles shut up and then looked at Roan.
“In this moment I Simon Rinse act instead of his majesty Deni III to completely pardon Roan’s sins.”
The nobles yelled with a surprised expression.
“Prince. You can’t decide to pardon the sin that easi…….”
Simon shook his head and stopped them.
Strength was put in his eyes.
“Speak. Is there someone that raised some clear merits from Pedian monster subjugation until the subjugation of Poskein lake?”
“Noble? Are you speaking about that rotten guy? After several investigations, his sins got clearly revealed. But you are defending that kind of guy?”
A column like presence.
In the first place, they were the ones that decided to follow Simon.
There was no need to be seen badly here.
“Everyone listen clearly.”
Simon said with a strong voice.
“I like people with abilities. If he just has that, I won’t care if that person is a sinner or a slave.”
The nobles bowed and replied in one voice.
This was Simon’s philosophy.
‘Because of that, he couldn’t stand getting his throne taken by someone that had less abilities than him.’
But of course, the decisive case that drove him crazy was another thing.
Roan let out a short sigh.
Simon’s voice was heard.
At those words, Roan carefully moved his feet and stood in front of Simon.
Simon slowly stood up and loosened up the dagger he had in his waist.
He gave the dagger to Roan.
“This dagger was something given by his majesty when I became an adult. It’s something made by famous blacksmiths and lapidaries of the capital of Miller. It’s my symbol I call Regate dagger and it’s an object proving the status of the 1st prince.”
Simon’s sight moved to the nobles.
“I’m going to give this dagger to Roan. You are to follow Roan’s orders as if they are mine, at least in the region of Tale, and follow him loyally.”
At that moment, a breath taking atmosphere was felt.
Several nobles were conflicted with stifled expressions but they bowed in the end.
“Yes. We will.”
Only then did Simon nod with a satisfied expression and looked at Roan.
“Roan. I’m giving this Regate dagger to you.”
Roan let out a low exclamation and hurriedly kneeled up.
He was slightly bowing and he carefully extended his two hands.
The dagger was placed above his palms.
“Roan. This Regate dagger…..”
A low voice as if he was whispering.
“You have to return it to me along with victory.”
A humorous expression was seen.
Roan replied in the posture of receiving the dagger.
“Yes. I will certainly win.”
A slightly trembling voice.
Roan was moved.
‘I, a mere commoner troop commander got the commanding right and strategies rights, that are the core for an army.’
He got recognized by the first prince, Simon, and got some nobles to be under him.
Roan wore the dagger in his waist with careful movements.
The sights of the nobles poured on Roan.
Sights mixed with several emotions.
‘Now whether they can act as limbs or not……’
He ground his teeth.
‘It’s all on me.’
His heart beat quickly.
He was planning to show his abilities to several nobles.
‘Not only because of the orders of the prince…….’
Flames appeared in his eyes.
‘I will make them want to follow me by their own.’
Soon, the quickly beating heart returned to normal.
Roan looked at the faces of the nobles with a calm expression.
Now, Roan wasn’t a normal troop commander anymore.
