always been primitive when it came to Magic Technology and Advanced Magical Arts.
They stuck very close to natural Magic, and so, even their transfer of information was extremely limited.
Considering the time, the Demons would have been attacking them for two days now, but chances of reinforcement arriving then were extremely low.
For one, they had no Magic Communication Tool or Teleportation Magic at their disposal.
Since that was the case, the emergency reports had to be handled through personal delivery.
Considering how large their territory wasand how they were most likely concentrating a bulk of their forces at their Northern Borderit would take the Elves at least five days to completely eradicate the threat of the Demon Beasts.
Two days had already elapsed, so we had three more days to respond to their state of emergency.
I would have liked to wait until they were more desperate, but to prevent more casualties and loss of properties, it was best to respond as soon as possible.
By rescuing the Elveswho had a strict custom of repaying good deedswe would gain their favor and have a higher ground for negotiation.
Besides, upon realizing just how big a threat the Demons were, and how powerful we humans would be as their allies, they would readily agree to an Alliance.
It was as simple as that!
Upon hearing my words, the Royal Court fell into a deep silence.
Many stared at me with surprise, shaken by my odd sense of rationality and intellect.
Not only had I proffered a solution to a long-standing problem, but I was also completely objective about everything.
Sentiment and emotions would cause anyone to lose their composure and advocate for a rushed rescue of the Elves, but I was different.
If it would increase our chances better, I was up for saving the Elves.
However, to have a better advantage against our potential allies, it was best to let them experience despair for a bit.
And then, we would swoop in at the last minute to reap the rewards.
I could have just rescued them on my own, but
Considering my plans for the future, it was better to have an Alliance between all the races as soon as possible.
II see King Albion Lestrome Indiavel murmured, stroking his beard.
Even the loud nobles from earlier had no choice but to be silent.
What of the other Races? Would an Alliance with the Elves be enough in our battle with the Demons? His Majesty asked me with narrowed eyes.
What a foolish question.
I smiled to myself.
Shaking my head slightly, I looked at the King who sat on his throne and parted my lips to speak.
Now that Ive gotten their attention with this the one holding the advantage is me!
The Demons are far more fearsome than you think.
To ensure a complete victory, its better to form an Alliance with every single Race!
Just as it was done in the past!
Gasps escaped the mouths of everyonewell, almost everyonein the room.
How do you propose we go about that? The King asked.
At this point, there was no arrogance or condescending presumption in his voice.
He completely understood where he stood, and that the one who held all the answers at this point was none other than me!
