are things that can’t be fully prevented
— we better station a medical team permanently on the coast
for that purpose
I also established a similar beach on a small island
different from the current one
just in case. That one is our private beach.
Even we would like to enjoy the beach

So, what important thing do I still have to do after

I guess that’s all there is to it.

In the end, It’s a bit annoying that I’ve done exactly what the rulers of the other countries told me to do, but it can’t be helped. I suppose that it’s a relief that my notoriousness won’t go up like that time in Yuuron. It may be thanks to the former slaves who have

I wonder if something has happened?
《Yes. It’s about the aforementioned island. It looks like one of the the barrier capital cities — the one located in the southern part — is being attacked by behemoths right now 》(Kougyoku)
《By behemoths? But aren’t those island capitals suppose
like catapults and ballistas equipped? It’s not like they cannot repel them

Oh-ah. So the barrier

Those barriers must have
a limit too no matter what.
A barrier belonging to the category of physical defense systems that prevents invasions is similar to a regular shield that uses magic power to maintain itself.
However, it’s still
different from a
shield — for example,
inflicting damage on a single spot of an armor or shield repeatedly will cause those to break even if just a small amount of power is being used.
However, that method

Besides, I wonder if behemoths have the

《However… How did it happen that
capital is being attacked by multiple behemoths?》 (Touya)
《I’m told that a group of people failed to hunt a behemoth, was chased by it and
into the city. In addition to their bad timing,
they’ve also met other groups bringing the total into 3, I think?
