The Royal Army departs from the royal capital. They’ve got many horses and
carriages. Behind the carriages are the infantry.
In the infantry, there is the Riggsby company, currently led by Wayne. Wayne
hasn’t been told why Patrick isn’t commanding, but he will follow his orders.
Good armies follow orders.
After several days on the road to the western area of the kingdom, the army should
enter the Westin territory tomorrow. At least, that’s what they thought.
Suddenly an arrow flew into the army.
“Enemy attack! Enemy attack!” Soldier
“So the Westin family actually betrayed us? I was skeptical of the reports.”
Lieutenant General Simon
If the Westin family hadn’t betrayed the Kingdom, it would have been impossible
for the reinforcements to be attacked here. Even if troops had been lost, the
remaining numbers would be able to restrain the Empire troops by holding various forts.
Lieutenant General Simon issues orders as the Kingdom Army clashes with the
The enemy they’re facing is around several thousand, he estimates. In addition to the
Westin flag, Simon notices the flags of other Kingdom aristocrats, and the
“So it was exactly as he said? Shame on the kingdom!” Lieutenant General Simon
“Report! In the Sahara grasslands east of the territory, fighting with the
Kingdom Army has commenced. Westin forces have the upper hand!” Messenger
“Good to hear!” Marquis Westin
The Westin family had immediately sent out forces to build a fort in an important
area even before they had attacked the Western Army. They wanted to grab all

“We can’t just drive them back, they would just fortify in our path to the
royal capital, we must exterminate them.” Marquis Westin
The head of the Westin family is greasy, bald and fat. Not all aristocratic
family heads are good looking.
“Are you sure this is going to end well? If we fail, we’re in bad trouble?”
Baron Riggsby worries
Baron Riggsby is a slender man with long brown hair, maybe a little taller
“Shut up! When you were told you could get rid of your debt by joining, it
was you, Baron Riggsby, that took only two seconds before agreeing!” Rudolph van Ceu
Baron Riggsby visibly shudders at the response as three other men look anxiously
on. The three men were Viscount Harter, and the Barons Karee and Hazy.
“Our soldiers are reinforcing yours, so we’ll win.” Rudolph van Ceu
Rudolph van Ceu is the third prince of the Empire, who concocted this whole
scheme to draw in the Kingdom aristocrats into changing sides. He’s a slender
man around 20 years old.
“That’s fine, because we can’t pull back anymore without issues.” Marquis Westin
“If you win, all of you will become Imperial aristocrats, don’t worry so much.”
