Sempler is a city facing the sea.
The city was surrounded by walls. Unlike Canale, there is not a place that is not surrounded by the wall. Since it looks like a new wall, it might have just been built recently.
As we enter the city I could see the sea from the gate area.
In my previous life, I was born near the sea while I was still in Japan, so I’ve seen the sea many times.
However, this is the first time I have witnessed the sea since I reincarnated in this world.
Well, even though it’s a different world, the sea is still the sea. The view is not that different.
The color is also blue. The smell of salt and the pleasant sound of the waves. It’s as if nothing has changed.
“Why is there a large body of water there?” (Charlotte)
Charlotte looks around wondering since she had only seen the sea for the first time in her life.
“That is the ocean. I’ve only seen it for the first time, but it looks really wide. I can’t see how far it’s going.” (Russell)
Russell looks at the sea for the first time looking quite impressed.
“If we have this much water, we wouldn’t have a problem with drinking water.” (Charlotte)
“Charlotte, you can’t drink because the seawater contains a lot of salt. If you drink it, you’ll become even more thirsty.” (Ars)
“Well, then it’s quite useless then.” (Charlotte)
“It really is not.” (Ars)
I hope they don’t take the sea for granted.
I stopped looking at the sea after I gaze at it for a while and we entered Sempler.
There was a gatekeeper, but I was able to enter without being barred scrutinized.
Perhaps the population of Sempler was so large, and more people are moving along the roads compared to Canale.
Since I have some experience from my previous life, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a lot of traffic. But Russell and Charlotte were quite surprised by a large number of people moving along the road.
“Sempler is the second-largest city in Messiaen population-wise.” (Ritsu)
The most populated city is Alcantes.
Not only are there many people, but they are also very lively.
There are stalls lined up along the side of the road, and they are calling out to passersby quite loudly, hoping to increase their sales.
I was fascinated by the various rare items that I can see, but I didn’t come to shop this time, so of course, we didn’t stop to shop.
A large castle can be seen in the back of the city.
Sempler Castle. This is where the war council will take place.
Originally I would like to look around, but we headed straight to Sempler Castle.
There was another wall after the city block.
It’s an old wall. It looked old similar to Canale. The outer wall was probably just made.
If we think about it, Canale is close to the enemy the State of Sights, so the current defensive wall we have barely cut it. Well, building a wall takes time and money, so it’s not easy to do.
It seems that we need a pass so we could cross the inner walls. The letter from Clan-sama can be used as a pass, as it was written in the letter. So we showed it to the gatekeeper and we were able to pass immediately.
Well-dressed people are walking inside the second wall, and all the houses seem to be quite elegant and luxurious. Perhaps those who have a lot of money live there.
When we arrived at the castle, there was a gatekeeper again. So we showed the letter once again and we were able to enter.
Sempler Castle felt even bigger when we are now in front of it. It’s bigger than Canale Castle. Not only is it large, but it also looks golden throughout.
Maybe it’s also covered with gold leaf, probably since they have lots of gold. I’ve seen several castles, but this is the first time I’ve seen a golden castle. Is it Clan-sama’s hobby? Or has it been like this for a long time?
I don’t like things that are too shiny because it cheapens it, but it may be an easy way to show power.
“We have been waiting for you, Ars Louvent-sama. We will guide you to Clan-sama.”
It was Robinson, whom I met when I first talked to Clan-sama, who greeted us.
I will return the greeting and follow Robinson’s guidance.
The interior of the castle was quite luxurious. The carpet is red and the walls are as golden as the outside.
There are several statues made of gold and embedded with jewels.
I am amazed at how much money they have.
Then, a man wearing black armor walked in front of me.
A man with a well-organized face, he looks to be about in his late twenties.
I can’t put it into words well, but I felt the aura of him not being just any ordinary person or something like that.
The man looked at me sideways and passed by without saying anything.
“… Are you from the Metro Mercenary Corps?” (Ritsu)
“Yes, I am Cramant Metro III, the leader of the Metro mercenary corps.” (Cramant)
The Metro mercenary corps is one of the strongest mercenary corps and one that Clan-sama hired.
I forgot to appraise him, so I should appraise him when we meet next time.
We were then guided by Robinson. Castle was large and high. Seems like Clan-sama is at the upper-most part of the castle.
“Clan-sama is waiting beyond the door.” (Robinson)
I was tired from walking for a long time and we have finally arrived in front of the room where Clan-sama was.
