133-Episode 133: Battle of Starts Castle ②

 Rietz and Mireille had led their troops into the interior of the city walls to attempt to remove the magical soldiers.

 The function of magic soldiers in defensive battles is significant.

 They are responsible for using defensive magic to protect the defensive walls, to activate the large scale traps in the castle, to activate large scale offensive magic, and so on.

 It was necessary to remove them as soon as possible first.

''Magic soldiers with important roles are in places that are not so easy to find. It's a pain in the ass to find them. Asking the enemy would be the quickest way to find them.
Are you going to torture me?
'No, I don't, but I wonder if there's anyone to talk to.
I don't know. But everyone is afraid of pain, and there is always someone who can't stand that fear. It's just hard to say if he has the information.
We'll just have to get someone who looks like they know and ask........ We'll have to get this done as quickly as possible, but will we make it in time?
I've got to make it.

 With no other seemingly effective methods, Rietz and Mireille start to act.

"Let's split up. I'll take the right side and you take the left.

 Rietz and Mireille split up into two groups and began to look for anyone who knew the information.

 Starz Castle is a walled city. The castle rises in the center, and the houses inhabited by the citizens are around it.

 This time the inhabitants all seemed to be holed up in their homes in case of an attack. No one is anywhere to be seen walking down the streets.

 As Rietz made his way through the town, he wondered how to find the person who had the information.

(You don't find them by looking in the dark, do you? I'm sure someone high and mighty in the military would know about it... but let's raid the squad waiting in town and talk to their captain.)

 More than half of the enemy soldiers are guarding the gates outside the Sturtz Castle. If the gate is breached, we will have to post troops right behind the main gate to deal with them. Then we will have to devote some troops to the defense of the main body of the castle as well.
 But in addition to that, they would have to have some troops stationed throughout the town in case of a surprise attack like the one we just had.

 However, since they wouldn't be expecting much of a surprise attack, Rietz expected that there wouldn't be that many high quality soldiers placed there.

 The proof of this was that he had allowed Kramanto to easily break through.

 Rietz led his troops and walked through the town, looking for the enemy.

 He walked with enough caution of his surroundings to avoid being spotted by the enemy first. Since the advantage of the ground is in the enemy, you can't walk with your guard up.

 I found the enemy first as I was walking.

 You can see that the enemy has invaded and is in a hurry. They are not very experienced soldiers by all appearances.

 They were just behind the enemy.

 Thinking that this is the right time, Reetz instructs his soldiers to charge.

 The opponents finally notice Leets' attack after they've eaten the attack.

''Te, enemy attack!

 The captain who was leading them didn't have much ability, and the squad was easily decimated.

 Rietz captures the captain.

(Well, I'm not very good at this sort of thing, but I guess I have to do it.)

Oh, I'm not saying a word! It is a disgrace to behave like a betrayer of your lord!

 He said, but it was clear he was shaking.

'There must be several facilities in this castle that are run by important magical soldiers. Tell me about them.
"I won't tell you... or I don't know! I forgot that stuff!
If you don't you'll get hurt.
"Wait, wait, I really don't know! I'm not very smart, you know! I don't even remember things!

 Rietz honestly didn't think he was lying.
 He couldn't be sure, but it was bad to spend too much time with someone he didn't know.
 He decided to trust his instincts here, stop asking for information, and hit the others.

 The captured captain leaves them tied up and looks for another location.

 Then, this time, he was taken by surprise from the opposite side.

 Rietz sent out quick instructions and calmed the soldiers to respond.

 He cuts down the enemy soldiers coming towards him one by one.

 However, the enemy is quite formidable.

 The presence of soldiers of this level in the rear was unexpected, even for Rietz. It was a hard fight.


Stop it, you guys!

 And a loud voice rang out.

 After a while, a muscular but short boy emerges.

 He was holding a spear and had a scar on his cheek.
 His age is still young, around fifteen years old.

''You look strong. Let's have a one-man fight. If you win, I'll do whatever you say.

 The boy suddenly said that.
