361-Episode 354 Evil God
(The Mediator has gone away.)
With that, Allen flipped his gaze out of the window and back into the temple room, where he met the eyes of his friends and the She-beast Princess.
The she-beast princess and the fully recovered Captain Lud seemed to want to discuss what to do now.
"So what are you going to do?"
Cecil asks Allen on behalf of everyone.
"There's something I want to look for. I want to know if there's a power source in this building.
He says he needs you to look for something with him.
"What? A power source?"
Allen says he wants to move the island.
He wants to move the island.
We search through the halls that have been destroyed in the fierce battle.
The lower levels, where there are still dead spirits, will be eradicated by the summoning of Spirit A and the mass battle of the beastmen.
Since we had only defeated the monsters that were in the way of our quest to reach the top floor, there were still a good number of monsters left.
After defeating all of them, I checked the private rooms and passageways to see if there was anything like a power room that could move the island.
After doing so, I arrived at a room in the basement, a level further down than the entrance.
"What the hell is this?"
The she-beast princess couldn't help but exclaim.
"It looks like a cube-shaped object.
Princess Xia thinks, "What's a cube?" What's a cube?
Allen uses a lot of words that he used in his previous life as a gamer, such as "random number.
There are similar words in this world, but the nuances are often difficult to grasp.
I'm trying to get my friends to remember the concepts as well.
Allen's unfamiliar terminology is referred to as "Allenese" among his friends, and is compiled in the Allen Glossary.
Not only Allen, but it is natural for a large party to have secret words that can only be understood within the party.
Strategies and information that should be shared only among friends can sometimes mean the difference between life and death for friends.
The she-beast princess sometimes uses words that Allen doesn't understand, but since the party is led by an S-ranked adventurer, he thinks it's natural that cloak-and-dagger words exist.
The room on the first basement floor is a moderately large hall.
In the center of the room is a huge cube, several meters on a side, floating on a kind of pedestal.
In addition, there are a number of unfamiliar magic tools around.
"It looks like this is definitely the power source.
"Yeah, but what are we going to do?
"No, I was wondering if I could use this island as a stronghold for the Demon Lord's army.
Allen thinks that he can make this island rise high into the sky and use its gravity and mass to bring it down on the Demon Lord's stronghold.
I don't know how much of a blow this would be to the Demon Lord and the Demon Gods, but it could do a lot of damage.
This floating island is probably about the size of the meteorite that destroyed the dinosaurs in a previous life.
I'd like to raise the altitude to the limit, and hope that the power of the fall will destroy the Demon King's army.
That's why I was looking for the power to move this island.
"No, it's not worth it.
A confused voice came out of Sophie.
What?" Allen reacted, and everyone's eyes involuntarily fell on Sophie.
I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on.
"No, no. It's nothing. ......"
It was nothing, apparently.
"I'm sure this is a magic tool. I'm pretty sure this is a magic tool. It looks like the same stuff they use in the dungeons."
Merle is touching some kind of device to see if he can move it.
I'm not sure if it's a good idea or not.
"I think it's probably a magic tool, so I think a mage can operate it.
"Mage. Can't we bring in some people from the Bauxite Empire?"
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.
In order to do this, they rely heavily on golem users of all ranks, including the mithril class, as well as "mages" who specialize in the use of magic tools.
The mages analyze and analyze the grimoires made by the dungeon master, Digragni, and also create their own imitations of the grimoires.
Merle tells me that since they can analyze magic tools, they may be able to tweak the power source of this island to make it work like a magic tool.
"Maybe we can ask the Admiral.
Merle says that if he asks Admiral Galala, he'll help him.
Allen adds a magician to the list of things to ask of Admiral Galala.
"Right. Now all we have to do is join the war."
There's currently a war going on in northern Rosenheim and northern Central Continent.
Thanks to Allen, there are currently 20,000 child hatchlings each ravaging the battlefield.
Since the war is about to be decided, I would like to offer my support.
We still haven't defeated all the evildoers and demonic beasts on the continent where this confederation is located, but it's only a matter of time.
The summoning of Bug A by the Royalization is too good.
In this continent as well, the summoned beasts of Bug A and the 30,000 child beasts born by the parent hatch are destroying the demonic beasts.
I also have to report to Elmar that the situation has been resolved.
Allen. Can I have a word with you later?
"Hmm? Oh, you mean about Cubel's operation this time?"
While Allen was thinking about the future, Merus spoke up.
There's something he needs to say.
There is a nest that can be transferred to Elmar's country, but since Merus is still looking unhappy after defeating the evil cult leader Gushala, I decide to listen to him.
We're in a slightly different place, in Tam-Tam.
We're all gathered in the cockpit.
"So, what's the story?"
"So, what's the story?" "Well, I guess the she-beast princess is coming with us.
I was going to use my "homing instinct" on Kreviahl and send all 2,000 beastmen with him, but the Seer Princess came with Captain Lud and Vice-Captain Rath.
The she-beast princess had some thoughts about the battle.
She had some thoughts about the battle and decided to stay here because Allen had given off the vibe of having a meeting to summarize the battle.
"As to the matter at hand. First of all, I let Cubel get the jump on me.
The reason why Cubel, who was called the primordial demon god, was able to do so much to me was because I hadn't explained anything to him, Merus said.
"That's right. By the way, what should I have told him so that he wouldn't have made the first move?
He says this somewhat apologetically, so I dare to ask Merus.
This case was a strategy to defeat the heroes and heroes brought by the creator god Elmere.
He thinks that even if he had known about this mission in advance, it would have been tough.
If they knew in advance that they would be interfered with, they would have taken a strategy that did not care if they were interfered with.
They could have chosen not to go into the temple and deal with it.
Then the damage caused by the infidels on this continent would have multiplied several times.
Perhaps the same thing could have been done on all continents.
(It's all just a possibility. I mean, it's only been three months or so since I started talking to Merus.
Merus has taught me a lot in a short period of time.
Allen thinks that there is no need for further reflection on this matter, because it has been accomplished to a certain extent.
"It's pretty hard not to know what they want.
Cecil touches on the biggest problem with this case.
That's true. You don't know what they want. I'm sure there are a number of hints.
The Witch Queen's side is basically keeping quiet.
"I wonder why Cubel didn't fight until the end. Why didn't Cubel fight to the end? If he had, he could have killed us all, right?"
Then he looks at Merus.
"You're right. You didn't mean to kill him. Or it would have been more convenient for you to be alive. Or maybe I simply underestimated him.
In that situation, any of those things are possible.
It just so happened that Allen's kingship skill came in time, and Dogora made a contract with Freya, the god of fire.
This was a miraculous chance, I would say.
If he hadn't been working like crazy since he was one year old, he wouldn't have been able to make the king in time for this incident.
The fact that Dogora was able to make a contract with Freya, the god of fire, was by far the biggest factor.
Basque, who could master defense and offense and could also make a decision to flee, was a much stronger opponent than Gushala.
The birth of Dogora, who could defeat Basque, was a miracle.
The dogora, still unable to move, sits deep in the backrest and closes its eyes.
It may not be thinking.
Maybe he's asleep.
"Helmios and Basque are still alive after all.
It was Cubel who didn't kill the brave Hermios, and it was Cubel who made Basque a demon god.
Cubel was at the center of the commotion this time.
The Demon Lord's army isn't monolithic, is it? He doesn't like the fact that a demon god who's been alive for hundreds of thousands of years is being treated well by a demon lord who's only been around for a hundred years or so. Why is he being treated so well in the first place? (Or are they cooperating with each other?).
Because of Cubel's actions, the Demon Lord's actions have become even more unpredictable.
"Those black flames are the lives of those who sacrificed their lives, aren't they?
While exploring several thoughts and possibilities, I asked Merus about the jet-black flames this time.
"Yes. I'm sure of it. Cubel brought back the lives of millions of people.
"With that many lives, how many demon gods can you create?"
If he was not only killing people but also collecting them, he must have a use for them.
The first thing that comes to mind is the existence of the demon gods that Allen and the others have fought so hard against.
Normally, there should only be one demon god in the world, but in the past few years, they have defeated many of them.
Obviously, it is the work of the Demon Lord's army that is multiplying.
I don't know how they use lives to create demon gods, but one demon god is equivalent to the lives of 100,000 people. A higher-ranked demon god would be ten times as deadly.
Merus teaches us that faith and life are closely related.
Merus tells us that faith and life are closely related, but it's a different story if you can create a demon god just by collecting lives.
(Isn't making a demon god fuel efficient? Well, it's one thing to create a demon god permanently, it's another to gain the power of the flame itself.
The higher demon god Gushala, who had gained the power of the jet-black flames, had become nearly immortal.
Cubel seems to have left behind 10 or 20 percent of the flames from the altar.
One demon god with the status of two demon gods is much stronger than two demon gods.
This is proven by the fact that it takes 10 times as many lives to create a demon god as it does to create a superior demon god.
Gushala's invulnerability was probably only due to the fact that the status boost from the jet-black flames exceeded Allen and the others' attacks, so the damage she took was minimal.
I'm not sure what to make of this," he said.
"So, does this mean that the Demon Lord's army is trying to strengthen itself right now?"
Cecil guessed how many demon gods would be born as a result of this incident.
If what he says is true, it means that there will be dozens of demon gods.
"I've heard that the Demon Lord's army that attacked the God Realm was mainly made up of demon gods, do you remember how many of them there were?
Merus is fighting the Demon Lord army that invaded the God Realm.
The army consisted of demon gods, high ranking demon gods, and S rank demon beasts.
I've heard that it was the demon gods that made up the largest portion of the army, so I asked him how many demon gods there were.
"Hmm? What do you mean? Well... I think there were hundreds of them.
"Hundreds of demon gods: ......"
Hundreds of such powerful opponents.
"Then it's unlikely that there will be more demon gods. If it's possible to make the Demon Lord himself stronger, that might make more sense.
"Using life to strengthen the Demon Lord himself? It might not be impossible either.
I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
"What do you mean?
Cecil asks why it is unlikely to increase the number of demons.
"No, I don't think they'd do something that would take decades and have only that much effect. If that's the case, the strength of the Demon Lord's Army will only increase by a few percent at most.
If there were only a few demon gods in the Demon Lord's army, I could understand.
But I don't know how many demon gods can be created when there are already hundreds of demon gods, but I think that the number of demon gods will not increase that much.
"I see. I see."
Allen and his team have already reached the point where they can defeat demons without much trouble.
It's true that they can't take on dozens of demons at once, but there are ways to do it.
There's one more thing I want you to know. I'd like you to know one more thing, and that is how to do it.
"It's possible that the Demon Lord's army is aiming for the Demon Realm.
It's a world with a demon world. Hmm? I thought the demon world was sealed in Elmere.
This world is made up of the divine world, the terrestrial world (human world), and the demon world.
The entrance to the demon world was sealed long ago by the creator god Elmea and the power of the gods.
It seems that there are demon gods, demon tribes, and demon beasts with overwhelming power in the demon world beyond the seal.
It is said that if the seal of the gate between the demon world and the demon world is broken, demon beasts will pour in from the demon world and the earthly world will be destroyed.
I learned this in a class called "Genesis" at school.
This is one of the main reasons why people believe in the creator god, Elmea.
Thanks to Elmea, people are living in peace.
"For example, if you want to use people's lives, you could open the gates of the demon world. Or it could be to awaken the evil gods that are sealed in the demon world.
I don't know if that's possible, Merus said.
"Evil gods? Is there such a thing?"
Allen wonders if there ever was an evil god.
"They existed a long time ago. It was separated from its body and sealed away by Lord Elmere.
Mels talks about the evil god.
He says the evil god is as powerful as Elmere, the creator god.
In ancient times, before Merus was born, the evil gods who tried to destroy the gods and the divine world were defeated by Elmea and the gods, and their bodies were split into pieces.
The evil gods were defeated by Elmea and the gods, and their bodies were split into pieces. They were thrown into the demon world and told never to come back.
"I can't believe you're as powerful as Elmea."
Sophie is horrified by Merus' story.
"You're going to the demon world to get an evil god to improve the strength of the demon king's army?
I'm not sure if there's a way or means to do this, but it's the gods' opinion that it's the most effective way to strengthen them.
We don't know if we can break the seal or resurrect the evil god.
We don't know if we can break the seal or resurrect the evil god, and we don't know if we can handle the resurrected evil god.
In the end, there was no conclusion to be reached that day.
However, the Demon Lord's army will always make the next move.
Allen and the others must always keep moving forward.
That was the end of the meeting.
