beast’s neck… isn’t that a very simple proposition?”

Of course, I anticipated that he would approach it in such a way.

“It’s similar, but that’s not it.
 Goff, your task is not to kill the enemies from the front line, but to protect other tribe members and your brothers.”


It was a simple statement.
 Hoping that he would understand, I subtly looked at Goff, but he had a confused expression on his face.

“That’s… Then am I not burdening you guys.
 The Blood Dagger Clan, the Goff Clan and the Black Spear Clan are all strong.
 The ones that need protections are only the newbies of Black Spear and the little Green Skins.”

I felt like it was getting more difficult.
 He wasn’t able to understand the task of providing protection from the front of the line.
 For some reason, I had to swallow my dry mouth as I felt that it would take much longer time.
 Then it was Black Spear who helped me.
 For some reason, by having the unit at the back of the formation, he must have clearly understood what I was getting at.

“I don’t think Blood Dagger is saying that.
 If you think about the battles fought in the human village, you could see it.
 The warriors who were defending the path of human sorcerers and archers who were attacking from the distance… Goff, if you had not penetrated from the back, they would have clashed with the human warrior first.
 In the mean time, the human sorcerers would move to a different location…”

It was much clearer explanation than mine.
 Although I knew that I lacked the ability to clearly communicate, it was a bit embarrassing to be falling behind Black Spear in that regard.

“Hm… That’s right.”

Goff, too, must have clearly understood what Black Spear was getting at.
 He was nodding, with his expression having been brightened.

“To give a simple example, if the goblin archers were to defend against attacks, there would clearly be a lot of casualties.
 So, in order to avoid being attacked, being able to move fast alone is not sufficient.
 In order to hunt down the beast of the east, the attack must take effect without stoppage.
 So, take the hits in their place.
 Ogres would definitely withstand any attacks that goblins fear.”

“If Goff and several Ogres can provide defense in a way that the attacks cannot reach the archers, the archers can effectively launch attacks, nonstop.
 This is the most important aspect.”

“I see!”

I was concerned about dissatisfaction that he might feel in protecting by possibly suppressing the beastly nature.
 However, looking at Goff, I was able to not worry about it.


Fortunately, it might have fit well with Goff’s nature.
 Since I was feeling a little good about it too, I spoke again as I looked at Goff.

“And, the sorcerers will continue to release the healing waves to treat the injured Ogres.
 In this way, we can conserve the magic power used on the sorcerers and archers.
 If Goff can defend well from the front of the line, I and the swordsmen will not have the need to receive the healing waves, either.”


It was a very fundamental concept of a raid.

“If it is as you said, then the facing the most dangers will be me…”
