[TL: I now have some spare time, so I will be rechecking all previous TL and do some TLC and editing…
I am not good at it, so don’t expect much.
I will be starting from my very first TL (Cahpter 44), so it may take a while before reaching this part.
I am well aware that the quality may not that good and even bad from time to time, so I will be doing an overall check from where I started.
Also, to all who have been to all who have been complaining about MTL this MTL that if, you think the quality is so bad, you are free to stop reading it or read the raws directly using MTL.
If you have the time to complain about the quality being MTL level, pointing out mistakes would be a much preferable use of the time you waste saying that it is like MTL.
Not only would that improve the TL, it would also help me improve at finding common mistakes and fixing them.
I am simply translating this my own way in the most comfortable way possible.
I am not forcing anyone to read this.
If anyone can, I actually recommend people to read the raw through syosetsu with google TL if you are using chrome since that would actually help the author have more viewer ratings or simply just opening the site scrolling down and matching the chapters you are reading.
Complaining about my translation won’t help anyone, and pointless to begin with, I am even surprised as to why one would continue reading a TL knowing that it would not be so good.
Well enough TL rant, that is all.
And for all who stayed behind to continue reading and even supporting, I am truly grateful.
Thank you for reading this series and all the support.]
Response and Preparations
His Majesty said with a mysterious look on his face at my words.
“…attacking many strongholds at the same time, and even sending troops to small towns and villages.
That sounds unrealistic.
Like any country, it needs a lot of troops, supplies, and expenses to defend itself against its neighbors.
Therefore, even in a full-scale conflict with a neighboring country, it is not an all-out war.”
His Majesty explains carefully, taking into account that I am a child.
Thank you, Your Majesty.
I nod once in gratitude, but politely refute him.
“I am sure that this has been the case in the past, but from this time on, the nature of the war has changed.
If the Kingdom of Jiernetta has dozens of wyverns and dozens of puppet sorcerers, they will send ten to twenty pairs to each base, and even Scudetto has fallen.
Considering that, I think it’s quite possible that more than one location could be targeted at the same time.”
When he replied, His Majesty pulled back his chin and rested his weight on the backrest.
Perhaps he decided that it was worth considering.
Then Count Ferdinand spoke up for the first time.
“…What you have just said, I felt that there was enough room for consideration.
But then, I think there is something a little disturbing about Baron Van’s argument.
It sounds as if Baron Van would be able to respond to the new fighting style of the Kingdom of Jiernetta…”
“I think he can handle it.
I can deal with both wyverns and black balls.”
Count Ferdinand kept his mouth shut as he replied clearly.
Then Count Venturi, who was in a frustrated mood, could not resist and tapped on the table.
“Ridiculous! I will not listen to this childish nonsense! There can’t be so many armies that not only the border knights, but even the Marquis Fertio’s knights would be forced to retreat! What is a single child like you going to do against such an opponent!?”
Count Venturi was absolutely right.
Well, a child’s pet theory would have no persuasive power at a meeting like this.
But I’m not going to back down either.
“If I go back, the odds of winning will go up.
There is no doubt about that.
Besides, I have no intention of leaving without doing anything.”
When I told him that, Count Venturi glared at me.
Oh, no, that’s scary.
Those are the eyes of a murderer.
With that thought in mind, I turned to His Majesty with my whole body.
“I will return home immediately.
Instead, I will leave behind the new ballista, the tiger’s child, and a new weapon, a superb and powerful catapult.
Of course, I will also leave to Viscount Panamera the strongest continuous-fire mechanical bow unit that handles it, so it will be of sufficient strength.”
When he said this, His Majesty and Panamera exclaimed with delight.
Count Venturi, however, was understandably unconvinced.
I had no choice but to get up from my chair and open my mouth to Count Venturi.
“In order to convince you, let me say something very rude.
Please lend me the Count’s sword or shield.”
When I told him this, I thought he would get angry, but surprisingly, the Count quietly looked at the man sitting next to him.
Then, the man in large armor silently lifted his thick shield.
It looks incredibly heavy, but he’s lifting it with one hand, this guy.
Dee and some of the other adventurers use large swords like in the game, but this is a world that seems to ignore the laws of physics even without magic.
I look at the face of the man who is looking at me with his shield lifted and wonder why he and the other knight commanders, who must be Count Venturi’s family, are all stern-faced stalwarts.
I wonder why they are all so stern-looking and strong. I think so, and I think they look alike.
“…What should I do with this?”
“Oh, I’m sorry.
Then, have him hold it as it is…the hand is in the middle, right? Okay…”
I was in a daze and the man mouthed that in confusion, so I looked at the state of the shield while checking things out.
“Then, please don’t move for a moment.”
Saying that, I quickly reached around his waist, pulled out my sword, and cut off the shield as it was.
I cut the large shield vertically by about 30%, and in the process, I also cut through the wooden table with too much momentum.
I didn’t cut all the way to the floor, but the people around me were dizzy.
Everyone’s eyes turned to a piece of the shield that rolled across the floor with a deafening clang.
“…It is even sharper than before…”
Panamera muttered and looked at me, and everyone turned around as if caught at the moment.
I smiled at them and held up my own sword in front of my face.
It is a beautifully decorated sword.
It is a sword of Orihalcum, a sword with no impurities and a beautiful shine.
“This sword is one of my finest, but the iron swords I sell are as sharp as this one.”
After saying this, I looked around at everyone’s faces once more and opened my mouth again.
“And what flies with my ballista is an arrow with a blade that is as sharp as this one.
I used that ballista to defeat the Green Forest Dragon.
Incidentally, I also killed a wyvern that invaded my village with a catapult.”
“A dragon with a ballista?”
Count Venturi asks in a low voice, and before I can answer, His Majesty opens his mouth.
I’ve seen him take down a wyvern with a single blow.”
His Majesty said this, and even the Count was forced to be silent.
Then, Panamera spoke up.
“I was part of the dragon slaying.
All the magic only served to slow them down, but the baron’s ballista penetrated the dragon’s scales and killed it in the blink of an eye.
I can assure you of its power.”
At their words, Count Venturi, My Daddy, and Arte Daddy all looked at each other.
It was not easy to believe them, but they could not doubt His Majesty’s words.
Well, there is no use thinking about it.
I’m sure words won’t convince them, so I’ll just do what I can and hurry home.
I will make a mobile ballista and a catapult and go home.
I have prepared barrels filled with arrows and shurikens for the catapult, so please use those.”
“…You’re going to make them now?”
Van, I’ve been patient and silent so far, but you still don’t know what’s going on… now is not the time.
“Yes, I’m going outside!”
I cut off the line of the stubborn OLD MEN who were beginning to rekindle their anger, I got up from my seat and quickly left the room.
Once outside, the knights turned bodily and the knight standing in front of the entrance looked at me.
“Baron Van, is the meeting over?”
The knight asked, I nod lightly and moved.
I have some preparations to do, so could you please clear the main street for me?”
“Yes, sir! All right, sir! Split up!”
The knight uncle quickly gave his orders in return.
The knights were under the direct command of His Majesty.
Their movements were not in vain, and above all, they were fast.
Feeling the presence of His Majesty and his men coming out from behind me, I shout toward my unit at the end of the main street.
“Sorry! Can you bring the materials!?”
“Yes! I understand!”
Camsin’s reply came immediately, and the wagon loaded with materials started moving.
Now, let’s make a ballista and a catapult and go home.
