I Become a Rogue Lord in a World Where Only I Level Up C32: Talents Only I Can Recognize. Hidden gems (15)
Duke Ronen retreated, abandoning Bern Castle. His troops were preoccupied with fleeing past Linon Castle, which had fallen into enemy hands. That was what should’ve happened.
I needed his power to take back Linon Castle, that’s why I betted everything on Yusen’s character. Of course, the best way to do this was for me to appear and open the gates just as Duke Ronen began his attack on Linon Castle. That way, I wouldn’t have to hold the gates opened and struggle for my life until his army arrived.
The problem with this method, however, was the Duke of Ronen’s trust in me. He didn’t have enough trust in me to attack Linon Castle, that’s why I needed to open the gates in advance to make sure that he would.
“We’ll continue fighting until we take back Linon Castle!”
I didn’t rest my hand on the [Attack] command as I spoke with Zint.
“Who the hell are you people? How dare you attack with such a small force! Get rid of them and close the gates immediately!“
The enemy commander gave the order, his martial force didn’t came close to Elheat and Zint but he had more soldiers than us.
“Everyone gather in front of the city gate! Vice commander, could you please come this way as well?”
I was going to work with Elheat and endure the enemy attack in front of the castle gate. The fact that he came here meant that Duke Ronen was on his way.
“Let’s do that!”
Elheat nodded and our army gathered in front of the castle gate. The enemy soldiers surrounded us at once. It seems that the entire army of over 10,000 people has woken up. Zint and Elheat were slaughtering the enemy soldiers in front of the castle gate, but they kept coming.
“Do you have any ideas?”
“Yes, sir. If my subordinate, Yusen, is able to communicate the plan without any errors, it will be more convenient for us to be surrounded by the enemy like this.”
“Is that what you mean?”
Elheat said as if it were interesting.
“I’m going to kill all of them and surpass the general’s war record. Kuh-hah-hah!”
The enemy commander started shouting in excitement.
“I’m not kidding. Enemy commander, look up at the city walls!”
The moment I raised my voice like that the top of the city wall lit up. The soldiers who had retaken the top of the city walls lit the torches.
Immediately, a rain of arrows poured down on the enemies, the castle was filled with screams. The enemy forces were helpless in front of the arrow rain.
Not long after the cavalry rushed in through the open castle gate. The one who gave the order to attack was Duke Ronen.
As dawn broke, Linon Castle was thus once again in the possession of the Lunan Kingdom.
What is mana?
To be strong in this world means to be able to store a lot of mana in your body. In other words, the greater the amount of mana you can store in your body, the stronger you are. The strength of someone who can accumulate 10 mana is naturally different from someone who can accumulate 100 mana.
Mana can be accumulated in the body by practicing martial arts such as swordsmanship or other arts. In some cases, it is natural talent that allows one to accumulate a lot of mana without any effort. Talent or training were the ways to increase the amount of mana in your body.
A person who has accumulated 10 mana can naturally use the appropriate amount of mana to attack when using sword techniques. Strength and speed increase depending on how much mana is stored in the body. If you have a lot of mana stored in your body, you will be able to break through your physical limits.
The more mana is accumulated in the body the easier to manifest it through weapons. Naturally, the more mana is stored in the body, the more powerful the used skills will be.
However, mana can only be manifested if a certain amount is accumulated in the body. The accumulated mana can only be used for normal attacks if you have 80 or higher martial force and if you have 90 or higher martial force, mana can be used to manifest skills.
The mana used will automatically recover as time passes but the mana used for a skill will only start recovering after a period passes so it’s good to know your limits and adjust your skills as you use them.
In addition to manifesting mana through attacks, there is another way to use mana. That is to use the accumulated mana to create a mana formation. By using the mana formation a wider range of skills can be used than when mana is used through weapons. Of course, this also requires the user to have accumulated a large amount of mana.
However, very few people in the continent can use mana formation. This is because the mana formation requires a very advanced technique.
