The mercenary commander Carl, who had gone to leave the advance received from the lord of Montefeltro in Banco, returned to the camp.
Returning on his horse, he had one of his minions attached, Set, one of the three mercenaries who had given him attention earlier.
Set approached the returned captain without hesitation, handed the reins and talked to him.
“How was your trip to Banco?”
Seeing his question, I thought maybe he was making a bet with my co-workers.
It was obvious what the bet was.
“Did the captain ripped too much?”
At the same time as Set asked, I saw a group of people standing from a distance and eavesdropping on their conversation.
These were the parties who bet on this bet.
“It was nothing special.”
He responded as calmly and casually as possible, but he could not avoid the sting of Set, who had spent many years with him.
“Did the captain get robbed? right?”
As Carl did not answer, Set immediately whistled and raised his voice.
“Hey! did i say The captain will also go and be robbed!”
He didn’t say anything to himself, but he couldn’t get over quietly, but seeing his subordinates even screaming made him upset.
“Well, nothing happened?”
“Really? Did nothing happen there?”
When Set asked a question, Captain Carl shook his head with a solemn expression.
The jjambap he had been living for all this time could not be a laughing stock to his subordinates because he couldn’t manage even a single skin.
When Captain Carl returned to his barracks carelessly, Set’s expression wrinkled.
Of course he thought he was going to be ripped off, but he wasn’t.
After returning to the camp, the mercenary captain, Karl, immediately prepared to subdue the orcs.
Compared to their reputation, subjugating the orcs was a daunting task, and for that reason, they also had no intention of devoting much time to this mission.
I will finish the job as soon as possible and move on to find the next job.
But there is a problem.
The men who had sent reconnaissance in advance came back with unexpected news.
“Are you sure. There was a shaman in the pack.”
“And the size of the group is quite large, isn’t it? It’s not a typical village level. It was a great village in which several villages were united.”
When two of his men, who looked as dreadful as Captain Karl, reported so, Carl and the rest of his men couldn’t hide their bewilderment.
Orc subjugation, which I thought would be no big deal, was complicated by the sudden appearance of an orc shaman.
‘An orc shaman.’
At this moment, Karl remembered the boy in Banco who had asked him many questions out of needless worry.
The boy must have mentioned the orc shaman.
‘I thought it was nonsense, how did this happen?’
At the time of the conversation with the boy, Karl tried to ignore the conversation, saying that the orc shaman was nonsense.
The chance of encountering an orc shaman in a normal orc subjugation was very slim.
“If that’s true, it’s a pain in the butt. A shaman.”
Carl looked bewildered, and the same was true of his subordinates.
Each of his subordinates began to spit out a single word.
“If you are a shaman… … Is this unreasonable?”
“There is no answer if you are enchanted by an orc. It is not our area of expertise.”
“What a shaman! You didn’t hear that from the beginning, did you?”
There were not one or two subordinates who complained.
Some of his subordinates began to have doubts about this quest.
“Somehow I said it was too easy. I wondered why they called us to subdue one orc.”
“I think the same. The lord here deceived us.”
“Did you hide that and call us? Aren’t you crazy?”
“Maybe. If we had requested it as it is, we would not have accepted it.”
“But what are you going to do? Are you going to give up? Or are you going to do something?”
“The orc shaman is not something we can do.”
Even with their common sense, there were very few professions that could resist the orc shaman.
“Can’t it be done without a wizard or an elemental magician? There is no way to stop the spell.”
“Are there no Templars in this nearby denomination? I think a Templar would do something.”
“Or even a witch? Last time, the witch doctor solved it with the help of a witch.”
“No, what a witch! Then, what do you do when a word comes out of the church? Do you want to be driven into a witch and a rogue heresy?”
“So, you have to be as quiet as possible. Who is talking about the neighborhood?”
As the subordinates’ voices rose, Captain Carl, who was alone in thought, raised his hand and silenced everyone.
in silence for a while.
When the eyes of his subordinates gathered on him, Set made a voice.
“What are you going to do?”
In response to that question, Carl told me what he was thinking.
“However, I cannot give up on this job. We have a reputation we have built up.”
When the clamors of his subordinates were about to come out again, Carl quickly continued the conversation.
“This is the case, as long as you save the wizard, it will be okay. There are only shamans, but the scale itself is enough for us to handle.”
Then, Seth raised his doubts.
“Then you want to summon a wizard? Then the belly button is bigger than the belly button? You can’t run a wizard with a penny or two, can you?”
Most of his subordinates seemed to agree with Set’s words.
Captain Carl reacted to that.
“The cost will be charged to the lord here who deceives us.”
Let me know what you think!
