Day 354


Day 354


Minokichi-kun is crushing a group of bandits and thieves found along the way, at the same time looking for derived dungeons, but he seems to be proceeding smoothly.

Also, I plan on meeting them in a few days.


Because it's all going well, this time I will touch a little bit on the circumstances of each country.

Or rather, I have nothing special to tell today.


Anyway, first the Sternbild Kingdom.

There is no particular problem here.

A messenger arrived from Holy Kingdom, bringing news about the earlier Holy War, and that's about it?


Next is about Kirika Empire.

As a result of losing a large number of 【Heroes】 it found itself in a state of generalized uproar, although their original ranking still remained, among the six who were lost, four were 【Heroes】 actually captured with 【Fate Plunder】.

In other words, it's the loss of a strength to one that was originally an enemy, so the only painful costs of the Crusade were losing two 【Heroes】who were born and raised in the Empire, so they are well off.

It seems that many things are happening in their politics, but it's of little concern to their neighborhoods.


Next is about the Atarakua Demon Empire.

In the Atarakua Demon Empire, the new【Demon Emperor】Vasukia is steadily resolving the situation without the use of force.

Well, there is a lot of fraying going on.

If I were to speak in detail, it would take too long as well as being too troublesome, so I'll say for now that Vasukia will eventually become the governor, but that will take a little time.


Next is the Estgrand Beast Kingdom.

The cracks here are already starting to stabilize.

If there is any turmoil, the new 【Beast King】 Arthie immediately goes to handle it with Iron Fist Negotiations, a process that repeated itself many times over.

A muscle brain mentality prevails there.

It goes without saying that the person who has power rules everything.


Next, is the more distant kingdoms.

The current location of the kingdoms, aside from the above mentioned, are mainly across the other side of the Holy Kingdom.

Also, there are small countries across the Great Forest that oppose the Kingdom's domination, but decided to do so in a later occasion.

Distant countries were frightened of the mighty Holy Kingdom. They were inferior not only in number of 【Heroes】 but also in their quality, so it would be inevitable to be so because of the simple difference in both national strength and the average quality of their typical soldiers.


In this case, they're trapped between considering to continue subordinating themselves to the Lumen Holy Kingdom or forming a coalition against it - the demi-human are in the «Haizekus Alliance» and the military countries in the «Harendia Federation» - but they are a jumble as such. Anyway, knowing the outcome of the [Holy War], various changes have started to stir up.

That said, it will still take some time until it comes the time of the actual shake-up.

At that time, the target will be the Holy Kingdom above all.


Finally for the Holy Kingdom.

Because of the black dragon I had already sent, the consequences of the [Holy War] are known at this time by the majority of the people.

Therefore, chaos is raising within the country. With the country being so wide, the scale is much larger than in the surrounding countries.

Governance has greatly been upset for church officials, which are also the nobility and spiritual pillars, now as to the surface issues, soldiers have been assigned to work on keeping country-side quiet, but for the people who have been annexed in lost wars the splintering movement has begun.

Having sensed it, the Holy King has immediately dispatched his most trustworthy subordinates to various places in his nation.

Lumen Holy Kingdom has lost a large number of 【Heroes】 but is still a powerhouse in itself.

The number of people with [Divine Blessing] that have the potential to become the 【Heroes】 of the next generation is also still large, and they also have a large number of soldiers in their fighting force.

Dangerous signs can be seen, and soldiers are being preferentially deployed to such cities where it is likely to happen something in future, they seem to be trying to douse the fire before it becomes a conflagration that will burn up the country.

Some things will still slip through the cracks, even with that much preparation, but with the competence of Holy King, the mayhem may be smaller than expected.


Well, I think world is already gradually beginning to shift.

Regardless of the intents and desires of individuals, the world continues to move.

 “三百五十四日目”

 ミノ吉くん達は道中見つけた山賊や盗賊の集団を潰したり、派生ダンジョンなどを様子見しつつではあるが、順調に進んでいるようだ。

 後数日もすれば出会う事になるだろう。


 それは良いとして、今回は各国の情勢にちょっとだけ触れる事にしよう。

 というか、今日は特に語る事がないだけであるが。


 ともかく、まずは王国について。

 コチラは特に問題は無い。

 聖王国から使者がやってきて、先の【聖戦】についてあれこれ言われたそうだが、それくらいだろうか。


 次は帝国について。

 コチラは多数の【英勇】を失った事で騒動は起きたものの、序列第一位がまだ残っているし、失った六名の内、四名が【運命略奪(フェイト・プランダー)】によって取り込んだ【英勇】だ。

 つまり元々敵だった戦力を失った訳であり、手痛い事は手痛いが、帝国内で生まれ育った【英勇】は二名しか失わなかっただけ、まだいい方だろう。

 政治ではあれこれあるようだが、そこら辺は大きく関係してはこないだろう。


 次は魔帝国について。

 魔帝国では、順調に新【魔帝】ヴァスキアが実権を握っている、という訳ではない。

 まあ、色々ゴタゴタがある。

 詳しく語れば長くなるし、面倒なので省くとして、最終的にはヴァスキアが治めるだろうが少し時間が必要だろうさ。


 次は獣王国について。

 コチラは、既に安定し始めている。

 騒ぎがあれば新【獣王】アースティが即座に出向いて鉄拳交渉、それの繰り返しで納まってしまった。

 予想以上の脳筋ぶりである。

 力を持つ者こそ全てを決し、手に入れると言わんばかりの荒技だ。


 次は遠方の国々について。

 現在の国の立地的に、上記の四国以外の国々は、大半が聖王国を挟んだ向こう側にある。

 王国とは大森林を挟んで反対方向にある小国などもあったりするが、そこら辺はまた今度にするとして。

 遠方の国々は、強大な聖王国に対して怯えがあった。【英勇】の数だけでなく質まで劣っていたし、単純な国力や一般兵士達の平均的な質の差から、そうなるのも仕方ないだろう。


 頭を垂れて属国になる場合もあれば、聖王国と対抗べく立ち上げられた国際連合――亜人主体の≪ハイゼクス同盟≫や軍事国家による≪ハーレンディア連邦≫――などゴチャゴチャあったりするが、ともかく、【聖戦】の結末を知り、色々と動き始めている。

 とはいえ、実際に動くとなるとまだ先だ。

 それに動くとしたら、聖王国が真っ先に標的になるだろう。


 最後は聖王国について。

 既に俺が送った黒竜達によって、今回の【聖戦】の結末は大半の国民に知れ渡っている。

 その為、各地で混乱が起きている。国土が広い事もあり、その規模は周辺各国よりも遥かに大きい。

 統治している貴族達や精神的支柱でもある教会関係者にも動揺は大きく、今はまだ各地に配属された兵士達の働きで表面は大人しいが、裏では戦争に負けて併合された者達の動きが出始めている。

 それを察知した聖王は、信用できる配下を即座に各地へと派遣した。

 【英勇】を多数失ったとしても聖王国は大国だ。

 次代の【英勇】となる可能性を持つ【加護持ち】の数もやはり多く、戦力となる兵士の数も多い。

 危険な兆候が見られる、あるいは今後何かが起こる可能性が高い街などに優先的に配備する事で、国を焼く大火となる前に抑え込もうとしているようだ。

 それだけしても溢れ出てくるだろうが、聖王の有能さからして、予想よりも騒乱は小さいかもしれない。


 まあ、世界は徐々に動き始めていると思えばいいだろう。

 個人の意思や希望に関係なく、世界は動き続けるだけなのだから。
