T/N: I just read a comment about the Ancestor title. Not gonna lie, I forgot that I used Progenitor before. By the way, the kanji is 祖, which means ancestor, progenitor, grand (from grandma), etc. So, which do you guys prefer? Progenitor, Ancestor, Grand, or… Origin (this sounds cooler, so I add it)? And yes, Liu was in that rank before her fall.
Chapter 4 – 1km Speed
The battle of the three dormitories… begins.
At the same time, the 『Reaper’s Release Conditions』 were sent to each dormitory manager, and Mulle and I checked the contents together.
『Occupy the posts in the second and third tactical line twice, or have your post in the second or third line occupied twice. There is no limit to the number of times the Reaper can be released. The time the Reaper can be in the field can be increased by occupying the posts once when the Reaper is in the field.』
Immediately, I checked the map.
Each dormitory is sandwiched between two enemy dormitories from the front and back. This mechanism was established thanks to the Dimension Gate connecting all dormitories.
Flare probably chose this mountainous area because of these Dimension Gates… In other words, to attack Caeruleum’s base from Flavum’s, we have to pass through a dimension gate, but looking at the map, it is safe to say that we could instantly pass through.
There are Top, Mid, and Bot posts, and the distance between the base and the posts is fixed at 1km. However, that doesn’t mean we can travel that 1km in a straight line. The paved roads leading to Top and Bot are curved, so the actual distance is about 1.2km. If we wanted to proceed in a straight line, we would have had to follow the game trail.
On the other hand, Mid has a straight-line paved road. Therefore, if we want to attack the opponent in the shortest possible time, Mid is the only way.
The first move of each dormitory would likely be the same. That is to secure the first tactical line on their front and behind.
That is because even if we advance to the first tactical line, the possibility of being attacked by the enemy at the start of the battle is slim. Therefore, theoretically, we need to occupy the Top, Mid, and Bot posts on the first tactical line, solidify our defenses, and then head to the second tactical line.
A trained magician can run at 20km/h using body reinforcement magic like Tenebrae. This means, to cross a 1km distance, a magician needs around 3 minutes… However, it would be difficult to run through an unfamiliar mountain at top speed, and people have differences in the amount of magic power and stamina. Taking those aspects into account, it will take about 5–7 minutes to cross the 1km distance.
In addition to that, another minute is also needed to occupy a post. With that, it takes 6–8 minutes to take the Top, Mid, and Bot posts of the first tactical lines if we divide the units into six groups.
During those times, the King and strategists who remain in each dormitory’s home base are given some time, allowing them to plan their strategy based on the enemy’s move.
In that case, only the bare minimum of units was left in the base of Flavum, which is the King, the strategist, the reaper, five archers, and ten magicians.
This is the minimum number necessary for the Flavum dormitory, which has a small number of units compared to other dormitories, to send units to attack, and is based on the premise we can stop the enemy on the first tactical line.
Mulle had interviewed the residents of the Flavum dormitory to find out which unit they wanted to be in, what they were good at, and what they were bad at.
Mulle then assigned the units according to each person’s wishes and abilities, and if they were not satisfied, she held a re-interview for them. This was something that the previous Mulle would never have thought of, but the current Mulle sincerely faced each student before deciding on their unit.
『This battle is not just about me, after all. Since this is a great event, I hope everyone enjoys it.』
When Mulle decided to interview to decide on the unit, she said that and laughed.
The archers who remained at the base were the dormitory students, who told Mulle that they were not good at combat. These archers consist of five female students with one third-year student, two second-year students, and two first-year students.
Mulle and I talked and decided that the four of them would stay in the observation towers on all sides while the last one would stay in the living room with us and act as the operator.
Archers will have the magic power accumulated in their battle dresses increased by 1.5 times while in their base or posts. So, we will have the four people in each observation tower connect their magic devices with magic lines and fire magic waves forward.
When the magic waves hit an object imbued with magic power, they will automatically measure the reflected waves to determine the distance and direction of the object. In other words, we want them to act as the so-called human-powered radar that detects magic power.
These four also have been practicing the technique after school since Mulle told them their roles, and now they have become able to detect areas up to approximately 300 to 500 meters from the base.
With that, if the enemies manage to invade our base, we can use this information to devise countermeasures in advance, and if necessary, call back our units.
The third-year student who remained in the living room will compile the reports from each unit, including this human-powered radar, and report it to us.
Even though numerous window screens surrounded her with information displayed, she sat confidently, wearing headphones and closing her eyes in complete concentration.
Other than the archers, ten magicians also remained at the base. They are dormitory residents who were confident in the amount of their magic powers, but were unfit for combat. Some of them are best friends or lovers, so they can share magic power by forming a circle and holding hands before Crafting.
Although magicians only have 1 HP and are weak to any damage, they can Craft a certain number of Autobots while in their base or posts. In addition, they can also teleport units other than magicians between the base and posts.
In front of the magic device stuck in the ground, the girls joined hands in a circle and formed a magic circle, causing their hair to stand on end as it glows.
Autobot after autobot emerged from the center of the magic circle. A spherical bot with a mono-eye spins around before heading to search for an enemy. Then, pale puppet-like battle bots glided along the ground toward the battlefield, holding long swords and bows.
While the archers and magicians are working, no soldier unit can be seen at the base. One of the reasons for this was that the soldier unit had the amount of magic power accumulated in their battle dresses increased by 1.5 times while they were outside the base and posts. However, this shows that we do not have the luxury of concentrating our forces on the base.
While sitting cross-legged in the living room, I sank into my thoughts.
Flare… Fury… How will they move… The worst-case scenario for us is the Rufus dormitory and the Caeruleum dormitory colluded to form a united front and attack the Flavum dormitory, but…
I glanced at the large camera that was installed in the room. First of all, that is impossible. The two are restricted by their name and the media, and the world does not want to see one-sided bullying of the weak. For those two, the battle of the three dormitories is just a stepping stone for the future and just a chance for development. For that reason, even if they win, the victory must be entertaining and attract the attention of the masses.
The battle of the three dormitories has the meaning of a proxy war between famous families. In this case, the Ruleflame family and the Frigiens family… the two famous families naturally thought it was natural for them to win the battle of the three dormitories, so their real intention was to see what their next generation could do.
If that’s the case, a pincer attack is impossible. Although the Eisbert family is prestigious, the rumors about Mulle and Chris have spread due to the recent press conference, and the price of their heads has dropped to the point they couldn’t be dropped anymore.
Even so, Flare and Fury are not so naive that they make the Caeruleum dormitory and Rufus dormitory fight each other while ignoring the Flavum dormitory… Because those two are not a failure or ordinary girls, but talented next generations.
Those two will set up something, and it will probably be in a way that exceeds our expectations.
Now the problem is, when would that be…
“A message has arrived.”
Upon hearing the operator’s report, I subconsciously stiffened.
When I checked the time, only about two minutes had passed since the battle started. And yet, they’ve already started…
“Is it Rufus? Or Caeruleum?”
The operator shakes her head at Mulle’s question.
The operator whispered without expression.
“Commando unit, Tsukiori Sakura, succeeded in occupying the Mid post in the first tactical line of the Rufus side. She also sent a message.”
The moment I heard those words, Tsukiori’s smile appeared in my mind.
“How are you feeling, dorm manager? That’s all.”
Considering that one minute is required to occupy a post, it took only 60 seconds for Tsukiori to reach the 1km point. In other words, that speed is approximately 60km/h.
When she heard the words of the main character, who ran 1km at about three times the speed of a trained magician, Mulle laughed.
I smiled wryly and whispered to Tsukiori, who wasn’t here.
“… This cheat (MC).”
Tsukiori Sakura, who instantly erased my worries– was, without a doubt, the main character.
