Attacking The Main Base
I whispered as we walked away from the water dragon palace.
I was being careful so that Serulis could not hear.
“Goran. I’m surprised you gave Serulis your permission.”
“…Would you have preferred it if I hadn’t?”
“Not at all. I think she is very good with the sword. But aren’t you worried about her? As a parent?”
“Of course, I am. But it’s not possible to go on Adventurers only after you’re a seasoned Adventurer.”
“Well, that’s true.”
You could gain experience through repeatedly hunting goblins and demon rats.
But hunting vampires was an entirely different matter.
No amount of goblin or rat hunting would prepare you for fighting vampires.
“Please look after her when you can…”
“I’ll do my best.”
And then I addressed Shia.
“Shia. I didn’t know that you and the beastkin tribes used communication bracelets too.”
I was sure that they hadn’t previously.
During the battle with the High Lord, they had used messengers.
“His Majesty gave them to us.”
“Aye. It was necessary, so I gave them about twenty of them.”
Eric had been doing a lot behind the scenes.
And so we left the palace and headed for the barrier and gate.
Dorgo was waiting for us in the form of a huge dragon.
Aside from Dorgo, I would be accompanied by Eric, Goran, Shia, Serulis, and Grulf.
Nia watched us as we all got on Dorgo’s back.
“Please be careful!”
“Leave the rest to me.”
Leea and Kathe were in their dragon forms.
That meant they were prepared to fight.
“I will take off then.”
And with us on his back, Dorgo lept up into the sky from the gate. He moved at an incredible speed.
Shia and Serulis grimaced. Grulf was crushed up beside me.
In no time, we arrived at the place that the beastkin wolves suspected the main base was.
As we looked down from the sky, Dorgo said,
“Indeed. I do sense the presence of magic.”
“It must be concealment magic. Just as the reports suggested.”
“This is where I would like to hit them with my breath…”
“Hmm. But there appear to be defense barriers as well. I don’t think even your breath will do much damage to it.”
“In that case, maybe we should go down there and hit it with more physical attacks?”
That seemed the surest way. But it would also take longer and defeat the purpose of our ambush.
Besides, they might also have prepared for such an attack as well.
“Leave it to me.”
“If you say so, Locke.”
“Thank you, Eric. Shia, are there any beastkin nearby?”
“Let me check.”
“If there are any, tell them to move out of the area immediately. I’m going to use some great magic.”
Shia contacted the chiefs through her bracelet.
“Everything is fine. They are all watching from quite a distance now.”
Serulis looked puzzled.
“But didn’t you say that they have strong defense barriers? Even your power shouldn’t be…”
“Indeed. Hitting it with magic attacks won’t do a whole lot…”
