But why do we need to bother with the Oracle? I mean, there is no doubt that everyone will participate even with the absent of the Oracle.
But without the quest, we might proceed to fight without our full power. So, was this an attempt to pin us to fight to our fullest? Or, will it be another fight so tough, that we all will turn our tail to escape from?
“This is the details of the quest.”

“……we just have to take part in the operation until the end. I don’t think there is any particular problem?”
“That’s correct. This time, it didn’t write about helping, like that time with the elf. Nor did it mention about winning or losing.”
“Is there any possibility for this operation to fail?”
“It’s unknown. I rather not make any guess.”
And unlike the elf territory, which is comprised of only a single city, the principality of Hilgis is vast despite being a small country. In order to reach the quest’s clear condition, we need to follow the Empire’s strategy throughout this operation.
“Whichever it might be, everything will fall in place as long we do our best, right?”
“What you said is right. Well, I have not the slightest idea of what their strategy is. Nonetheless, I think right now we should bolster our preparation.”
“Masaru, what about sword training?”
Just like Tilika said, that is the biggest problem.
“I’ll do that, too. There is no telling what will happen at Hilgis. Our schedule will be packed, but I think it’s wise to strengthen ourselves.”
Ellie mentioned earlier about how I am motivated, but that wasn’t the case at all. I don’t want to die. I want to survive. That’s all.
Recapturing Hilgis will help to hold back the destruction of this world. That’s why it is a quest. It makes sense to do everything that I can in order to escape death 20 years later.
