The Cornered Empire
Approximately two years before the Divine Empire of Sydnia did the hero summoning, Purifier DMs started circulating in the markets in Valkyra Kingdom. That trend started spreading and have circulated to many countries in the continent apart from Triaria Kingdom who does not actively trade with Valkyra Kingdom.
For the Light God Churchーー no. For the Divine Empire of Sydnia, it could not tolerate the profits gained by Valkyra Kingdom from the magic device that uses Light attribute. Light attribute magic is a gift bestowed to them by God. It is, by all rights, unacceptable for the priests of the Genesis Faith to use Light magic.
「Pope-sama, apart from this, the offerings within Valkyra and Lomaria have been catastrophic with the appearance of cheap high quality basic potions appearing in the market.」
Prime minister Musudan warily revealed the radical decline in offerings.
「And so, Packard, has there been any contact with the Kamui unit that you sent to Volton which you found suspicious?」
Sydnia’s Holy Knight Leader Packard had sent in a Kamui unit, a team established to eliminate the enemies of the Light God Faith, to the Volton territory, which had been identified as the source of the Purifier MD and basic potioins. Their objective is, of course, to eliminate the source.
「We sent the Kamui unit to Volton with the instructions to eliminate the source, however, all members had been detained by Margrave Volton.」
「The Kamui unit did not commit suicide?」
Kamui unit is a zealot unit summoned only to other countries, and failure of their mission equals suicide so no evidence is left behind. Or so it should have been thoroughly ingrained into them.
「………… This has turned into quite the mess.」
Wyvaal’s expression soured. There, imperial princess Elizabeth started talking.
「Father, it would be best if we postpone this matter with Valkyra Kingdom for now. I believe that when that contract advances, the war potential of our Divine Empire of Sydnia will increase.」
「Fumu, Homer, what is the progress on that contract?」
Wyvaal asked the head magician Homer regarding the progress of Sydnia’s top secret behind the scenes plan.
「Ha! The restoration of the magic circle found in the ancient ruins of the age of god has almost ended. However, the analysis of the magic circle is impossible*. I believe that after it is filled with magic power, we will be able to activate it.」
「So the analysis has failed. Its effect is guaranteed, is it not?」
「Of course, we can only go by the explanations written in the ancient documents, but it is magic circle that uses such a large amount of magic power, therefore I have no doubt that we will acquire the strength to reign supreme over this continent.」
「Then Homer-dono, how soon could this be realized?」
Head magician Homer was asked by prime minister Musudan to verify how long before the plan could be executed.
「Ooh, that’s right, we must seek the cooperation of Triaria Kingdom. We need time to prepare as well.」
「Yes, it will take 1.5 to 2 years even if we utilize the ley lines to fill it with magic power.」
「Muu, it will take longer than I had expected. During that time, we can not leave Valkyra to its own devices. Should we dispatch Kamui units and move nobles connected to the Light God Church?」
「That’s right. To investigate the war potential of Valkyra and Lomaria, let us dispatch those that excel as spies within the Kamui unit.」
With Packard supplementing Wyvaal, they had set Sydnia’s objectives for the next two years.
