- Here’s the Mission. Your Mission Is to Burn the Elf Village and Eliminate the Terrorist Leader, Sylphina Bloommarin
- Chapter 1 - Unless we have proof that this girl is the mastermind of terrorism, we cannot kill her.
“- A trap has been set. It looks like they’ve even reached the enemy’s guard line.”
Got it, hero.
As I told you in advance, please wait there until the diversionary force moves.
Also, you don’t need to speak to communicate with me.
Did you forget the lecture on “Thought Communication”?
(… That’s right. I guess I’m just waking up and not feeling back in shape)
No, you’re doing well for what you’re doing.
Never forget, the enemy is an elf.
Those long ears won’t miss the slightest sound.
(Yes, I know, I know. But what kind of a terrorist would that mild-mannered elf be?)
They do not like the internal nanomachines that we, the machine empire, are introducing.
They have made a statement that it is a desecration of the natural human body created by God.
They have also targeted the emperor. Remember, my hero. If you fail, His Majesty’s life is in danger.
(Sylphina, the leader of the enemy, is plotting to assassinate the emperor, right?)
Yes. That is why we are taking retaliatory action.
But this is the land of the elves.
Therefore, we must not leave any evidence.
(…… So you’re going to burn down the elven village with that… I don’t like that.)
Yes, it’s a village, but a village occupied by terrorists.
There are hardly any women and children. Except for the leader, “Sylph, the Witch”.
(Shhhh – the lights beyond the village are getting brighter. Has it begun, Commander?)
Mm-hmm. We just received a message from the diversionary unit.
The operation has begun. Proceed with caution, and watch out for traps. Your objective is only the Witch Sylph.
Try to stay out of sight of the enemy.
(Yes, I know what I’m doing.)
-You’ve done an excellent job, you’ve managed to get through so many traps.
(After all, it is a human device. We can make predictions.
No, the enemy is not human, but it’s the same thing anyway.)
So, if you can read the thoughts, you can know the tricks. You must cherish that feeling.
-Now, my hero. The building you see in front of you is the base of the terrorist group.
The leader is probably inside.
Thanks to the diversionary forces, most of the enemies have been dispatched, but not all.
(You are saying that a battle is inevitable, right?)
Oh, let me explain the weapons again.
I’m talking about the pistol you’re holding.
(…… I’m told it’s a ray gun.)
That’s right. This is a bayonet with the most advanced ray technology in the mechanical empire.
You and your diversionary unit are the only ones equipped with this yet in the empire.
(That’s a bayonet? It looks like an ordinary pistol, though.)
Ah. It is different from existing bayonets, rifles with a knife on the end.
See the groove on the barrel between the front and rear sights?
That’s where the beam blade comes from.
(…… beam, blade?)
That’s right. It means that it can be operated with the stability of a sword, not a momentary projectile like a ray gun.
-The integration of a sword and a gun is the characteristic of this “ray bayonet-integrated” sword.
(I see. But isn’t it also unreliable that everything is a ray of light?
If the battery runs out, that’s the end of it, right?)
Yeah, that’s what happens.
It is a quick operation, and I don’t have any spare cartridges.
But I don’t think they will run out during this mission. Trust our technology.
(Hmmm, that’s a nice way to put it.)
Don’t say that. Your fears will not come true. Brave man.
Now, infiltrate the building. Be very careful.
(……It’s very empty. That means the diversionary forces are doing their job.)
……Ah, as it turns out, this room seems to be the only enemy in the building.
They seem to be having a hard time with something, but it might be a good idea to get some information around here.
So far, we haven’t even confirmed who seems to be the head of the group.
(Well, there are three elves, and one child tied up.
And one child tied up….. Who the hell do you think that is?)
I don’t know. The enemy is a terrorist group of elves, possibly traffickers.
(Thought criminal trafficking? That seems contradictory to me.)
Common sense won’t work with these psychos. They may just want a reason to fight.
Now, in order to get information out of them, we need to capture them without killing the enemy.
To do that, you set the integrity to non-lethal.
(You can reduce the output of the rays, right?)
That’s right. In the case of a gun, it would be a bullet with enough power to paralyze the entire body.
In the case of a sword, it automatically determines what is living and what is not, and decides whether to amputate or not.
The power to paralyze the body and render it immobile is the same as that of a gun.
(I see, it is a very well-made weapon. What are the chances of it malfunctioning?)
There are three of you, and all three of you won’t die. Do it to your heart’s content.
And don’t forget the power you’ve given yourself.
(…… “Accelerated Thinking”?)
That’s right. No matter how much time you spend thinking, not a second passes in the real world. Your brain is undergoing that much expansion.
Do your best to think through the extreme situation and choose the best solution. Be brave.
But don’t forget at the same time. Accelerated thinking only makes your thinking time infinite.
Sometimes there is no solution no matter how much you think.
Sometimes it is necessary to cut off your thinking and accept reality.
(-Got it, I’ll keep that in mind, Commander)
Mmh Then, snipe one of them with an integral first.
There will surely be counterattacks from there, but if you catch the signs with accelerated thinking, you should be able to deal with them appropriately.
(Ok–I’ll set it up!)
You rush into the room and hit one of them with a ray gun at the same time.
Okay, accelerate your thinking. Read the enemy’s movements.
(They both pull out knives.
One of them will make it in time with a shot, but the other one will get closer, you can’t prevent it!)
Then shoot one of them and activate the integrity’s beam blade.
With a blade, you don’t have to aim as you would with a gunshot, and you can defend intuitively.
But since it is not a substantive sword, it cannot catch a knife.
Bring the blade into contact with the body before the knife, so it can be disorientated.
(…. understand. I hope I’m doing what you think I’m doing.)
Don’t worry, you are a brave man. You can do it. You have the power to do it.
-See, I told you so, didn’t I?
You have the physical ability to do what you envision.
(……) Yeah, I guess so. Thank you, Commander.
Don’t worry. That’s my job.
But who are you getting your information from? All three of you are nicely unconscious.
Take your pick. Or it’s not a bad idea to free the kid who is tied up.
(…… Right, let’s wake up the elf kid first.
We’ll get more information that doesn’t lie than if we talk to the terror cell members.)
Good decision – no, wait, hero.
(What? This girl is sweating badly. She’s sweating a lot. We have to wake her up quickly or she’ll be in danger.)
-The bound child is our target, Sylphina Bloommarin.
She is feared as the witch Sylph.
What? Are you kidding me, it’s just an elf child, Commander!”
I had heard that she was over 500 years old, so I didn’t know that she looked so young.
But the color of her hair is different from other elves, light blue hair.
There was no doubt. It’s Sylphina. She’s been given power by the elf god.
Then why is she tied up? Wasn’t she their leader?
I don’t know why she was tied up. Maybe there was some kind of gang war.
Anyway, you have to put the finishing touches on her before she wakes up.
Disengage the non-lethal setting on the Integrity. And pull the trigger!
“…… Are you serious?
What if she’s not? What if this girl isn’t the witch Sylph? “
No, this girl is the witch Sylph.
If we let her live, the emperor is in danger.
Do your duty as an imperial soldier, brave man.
“I do not agree with that order.
Unless we have proof that this girl is a terrorist mastermind, we cannot kill her. “
