Chapter 274 Part 1
Translator: “Hakou” Editor: “Weasalopes”
At the very base of the world tree is a large hollow.
In the center of it, a magic circle floats at about knee height, spinning while emitting white light. The diameter of the circle was about the size of a person’s outstretched arms.
A dozen or so old men were now surrounding it.
「That should be enough. With this much, we should be able to get the second magic circle moving」
A high elf with slouched shoulders spoke up, and the others agreed.
The acting chairman took a step forward and thrust his arms into the air.
「Now, everyone, please send your magic power towards me」
What they were trying to do was to activate the second magic circle.
The power to do so is supplied by the first magic circle, but it requires magic power to operate it.
「I will begin」
As the acting chairman mumbled something in his mouth, a small white dot of light appeared a little higher than his height. It jumped around at high speed and drew a large magic circle.
This was the second magic circle. Its diameter is about twice as large as the first magic circle.
The horizontal disk, made of white lines of light, has not yet rotated.
「Slowly and carefully. If we rush this, the magic circle will collapse」
A high elf with thick eyebrows said while staring intently at him.
The Spirit Forest War, which used Spirit Cannon, happened before the Bloodless Revolution. Because of that, the experience of using it has not been handed down.
The pressure on the slouched-shouldered high elf who was entrusted with the operation of the cannon must have been enormous.
「Okay, it’s moving」
He leaned forward and clenched his fists.
The second magic circle above his head began to rotate steadily, but the first magic circle below his knees, on the other hand, was rotating extremely slowly.
An old woman, different from the pharmacist who is in the hospital, holds her mouth with her hands and screams.
Various suggestions from the surrounding. Still, the acting chancellor maintained his concentration and completed the heavy and delicate task.
The first magic circle was now spinning at its normal speed, and the second magic circle was spinning slowly but steadily.
「It went well. Now let’s discuss the remaining issue from last time, the range and power of the Spirit Cannon」
The acting chairman wiped the sweat from his forehead with his hand and turned around with a relieved expression.
With a snap of his fingers, a tapestry of a map appeared on the inner wall of the room. As if approaching the surface of the earth from a great height, the Northern city is magnified.
「What else is there that needs to be discussed? It’s obviously the Northern city」
「No, we must also include the area outside the city walls where the Knights are stationed.」
「There’s that damn checkpoint, too」
One person’s question is answered by another. Each time an opinion was expressed, the size of the red circle on the map changed.
Some expanded the circle, fearing that the Griffon’s range of action was too wide. Others narrowed it down, saying that widening it would reduce its power.
In the end, a circle that covered the Northern city to the checkpoint was chosen. It was the larger of the two proposals.
「Well then, have all of you decided?」
The acting chairman asked after everyone had expressed their opinions.
After confirming that more than half of the hands had gone up for the vote, he continued.
「Majority in favor. The range shall be as shown on the map」
Once the second magic circle is filled with light, they will spin the third magic circle. Once that is done, the only thing left to do is to activate the Spirit Cannon.
The high elf with the slouched shoulders breathed a sigh of relief that things had gone smoothly so far.
