In other words, it is difficult to send a wyvern charging into the castle walls with great force.

It’s useless because he is said to be a puppet magician of the highest rank in the kingdom.

The commander should not be confused by the fragmentary information of this useless puppet magician.

He must make his own decisions based on multiple pieces of information, and always take the best course of action.

This is a true commander.

Thinking about this, I let out a sigh and shook my head from side to side.

Why am I, with such a clear head, being treated so coldly?

Is it because there are so many people who are jealous of those who excel?

“…I must break through this citadel no matter what it takes and show my ability.”

With that in my mouth, I look back at my army.

Wyvern has informed me that some villagers have left the village and evacuated.
They may have spotted us.
Proceed with caution!”


We marched down the street with our large shields up in the air in a wary manner, but no attack came.

Easily approaching the castle walls, we looked up at the gates and looked at each other.

“…It’s hard to imagine a trap this close.
Perhaps only a few villagers escaped.
It is possible that they would make such a decision if they came as far as Wyvern.”

After all, if there are no experienced knights stationed in the area, is it a given that the villagers and others would flee at the mere sight of the wyvern?

“This could be our best chance.
If we get this many strongholds intact, it will definitely help us in our subsequent attack on Scudetto.
Now, open the gates!”


I ordered, and the soldiers began to destroy the gates.

However, no matter how much they tried, there was no sign of destruction or even cracks.

“What’s going on?”

“Master Unimog! Even an iron hammer can’t break it!”

“That’s absurd…!”

I gnash my teeth when I hear the report.

No matter how I look at it, it doesn’t look like Mithril.

It can’t be a material made from a new magical beast, can it?

“…By the way, did you say that the villagers escaped from the back of the house? If so, the back gate should be open.
All right, everyone! Let’s go around! He orders, and starts to move himself.”

“Attack magicians, follow from the rear! Heavy armor in front! Prepare for surprise attack!”


We regroup and go around as we continue along the walls.

But before we reached the back side of the village, we stopped.

“What, what, what is that…?”

Someone said in a hushed voice.

It was no wonder we were upset.

We were surprised to see a walled village on the side, but on the other side of the village, we saw a much larger fortified city.

“But that’s absurd! Is that Scudetto?”

“That can’t be…”

“Scudetto is supposed to be a circular fortress city! It must be another secret military base!”

The soldiers were confused and loudly shouted such things.

“Calm down!”

He yells at the confused soldiers and observes the citadel from a distance.

“It’s a strange shape.
Should we assume that the citadel is functional?”

“There are something spaced at equal intervals on the city walls.
There is no doubt that those are for defense.
There also appear to be figures nearby.”

“…Are they planning to hide there and attack with magic? Or maybe an attack with bows and arrows or rocks.”

He puts his hand to his chin and snarls.

“A structure that big, it won’t be completed in two or three years.
No matter how much we may have overlooked it, there’s no way that our intelligence forces can’t discover a fortified city of that size.”

“That’s true, but you don’t mean to say that you’re going to…?”

“We will conquer it.
It’s a given, isn’t it?”

When I said that, some of the knights wrinkled their brows.

They stared at me with dissatisfied faces and opened their mouths.

“There are no soldiers around that citadel.
That is certain from the information from the wyvern.
Then, first, let’s see the defenses of that citadel.
If possible, we will take control of it.
Then there will be no problem.”

When he reiterated this, the cowardly knights seemed to be convinced and fell silent.

What a bunch of useless soldiers.

I shook my head from side to side and let out a sigh.
