Chapter 173: Eastern Expedition part 5 – Dormages’ move
Dormages roared and threw the fruit that he had in his hand against the wall .
The fruit splashed to the wall, making a rattling noise .
The reason why he’s frustrated… It was a report of his army’s defeat on each battlefield .
After being defeated in Istrea, Dormages raised the army of demons to the border of the Kingdom of Horus .
The Dormages army has won a series of battles until now and he doesn’t think it will collapse with a single loss… He will recover immediately and sortie again for Istrea… Dormages was planning to do so, but the situation changed completely .
After being defeated by Istrea, many nations under its control rebelled .
The first thing that regained momentum was the Kingdom of Horus, which surrounded the Royal capital .
It was the Demon General Gilvales who was hunting down the Royal capital to the point of its fall . Bad news was reported to him over there . Yes, it’s the news of the Dormages defeat .
Upon hearing this, Gilvales immediately united the army of demons to save the king, raised it to the border with Istrea and planned to join with Dormages .
They stationed a minimum number of beasts and soldiers in the occupied areas in the Kingdom of Horus . And then they reorganized their decimated army and tried to invade Istrea again .
However, the Kingdom of Horus did not overlook the movement of the Dormadia army .
They took this opportunity to recapture the areas that had been suppressed .
They got their hands on intel that the Dormadia forces only had a few garrisoned soldiers, so they reclaimed the area . With that, they were able to wipe out the Dormadia forces in the country .
Reports of the defeat of the Dormadia army and the news of the recapture of his own country by the Kingdom of Horus; These news shook the whole of Dormadia’s territory .
The people, who could not stand the oppression of the demons, heard the news and decided to revolt all at once . In this way, Dormadia, who ruled one-third of the eastern continent with fear, was transformed into a war zone where humans and demons fought in various places…
Dormages was looking at the map of the eastern continent with a bitter face .
The kingdom of Dormadia, which governed one-third of the eastern continent he had built in the last few years was… cut in half in just a month .
There are three causes .
One is the invasion of the Istraea army .
Yes, that army that appeared when he invaded his country . They now appeared in Dormadia, releasing the occupied territories one after another .
No, to be exact, it might be different from the Istraea army .
It is a famous story that Istraea had no soldiers . Therefore, someone outside of the country would have stepped in to help this country .
An unidentified army… Dormadia has not yet been able to win against that army .
Dormages knows about [the power of numbers] . He built such a widespread plan in just a few years because he led an overwhelming number of demon beasts and dropped the city with the power of numbers .
Therefore, Dormages gathered soldiers all over the place and instructed them to meet them, but… the unidentified army swallowed their numbers and kicked them away . Dormadia’s army was devastated on both battlefields and the number of his proud demon beast army had now become small .
The second is the large scale revolt of the conquered countries .
The people of the important bases in each area rebelled at the same time, as if they had been planned . Normally, he would crush it with force without difficulty… but this time the situation is different .
It is not possible to deploy enough troops to crush it .
As many of his soldiers were tied down dealing with the Istrea army, there were only a few demon beasts and soldiers in each area . And… as if in anticipation of that, each territory rebelled .
Dormages didn’t take this very seriously when he first received the news . For him, a person is no different from livestock that brings wealth . And they are robbing everything that can be their weapon .
With his demon beast soldiers, there’s nothing to fear from humans without weapons because they are the same as livestocks… . .
But here too, his predictions were off . They had weapons and accurate information, and collaborated with each other to create a rebellion .
This freed up many conquered territories, forcing Dormadia to reduce its scale .
The last thing to mention is the absence of a [General] in the Dormadia army .
The Dormadia army is an army of demon beasts . The power of numbers is very powerful, but… there are only a few who are capable of controlling it .
In order to command a demon beast, it is necessary to have enough [Power] to make the demon beast submit . And when it comes to those who have both command and intelligence as a general… Their numbers are small among the demons .
In that case, he had only a few people besides the Demon General Gilvalez .
And some of his generals were also defeated during the invasion of Istraea .
Therefore, his army of demon beasts had become a mob without any cooperation .
[At least if there is another Gilvalez…]
Gilvales is currently leading an army to suppress the rebellion . At that point, it was reported that the Istraea army had invaded Dormages’ territory .
[…Oi . ]
After worrying for a while, Dormages told his close aides:
[Bring the [cat guy] who is being held in prison . ]
The aides couldn’t understand Dormages’ instructions and were just confused . Seeing that, Dormages shouted without hiding his frustration .
[…Bring a man of [the True Beast Man] who has a lion’s face!!]
When he yelled, Dormages grinned and laughed .
[Let’s get that cat guy out… . It seems that true beasts value their [friends] more than anything else…]
When I said that, Dormages started laughing out loud .
