Volume 3: Chapter 226 – The Second Advent of the War Princess (1/3)
After unifying the south, the Goblin King met with Pale at the office of Elrain Kingdom to check their military strength. Their next target would be the western region’s Germion Kingdom. A country that stands equal to the Holy Shushunu Kingdom.
Presently, the Holy Shushunu Kingdom was yet fighting among themselves for the successor of the war princess.
The cavalry under the direct command of the king now numbered 500. It was made up of rare class goblins and above and was led by Gi Be Slay the One-Armed Goblin. They handled their loyal but fierce monster steeds and is considered to be the strongest force within the kingdom.
After them are the four generals that hold the highest positions within the army.
A long-armed goblin who was also a knight-class, Gi Ga Rax, led the monster and spear army, Aransain. His army had taken 200 rare class goblins from the king’s cavalry. His was an army that prioritized mobility. A chief of one of the tribal goblins living in the Forest of Darkness, Hal, who led the Paradua was also a part of Gi Ga Rax’s Aransain. The vice clan leader of the Proud Clan (Leon Heart Clan), Zaurosh, was also incorporated into his army. On top of that, many local adventurers were also hired after the conquest of the Labyrinth City of Tortoki.
“Aransain currently numbers over 2,000. We have yet to replenish the numbers lost during the last battle.”
As the king nodded, Pale continued and showed him the documents.
The next goblin she showed him was Gi Gu Verbena. A duke class goblin who was the greatest commander next to the king. A fierce general who leads the axe and sword army, Felduk. At the same time, he was also the ruler of the southern area of the Forest of Darkness. Even in the last battle, he was able to endure the attacks of the Blue Knights repeatedly. He is highly appraised. But although strong offensively, he lacks tenacity when defending. Alas, that is a common trait among goblins. Still, despite that ill-matched trait, he was still able to exemplify a tenacity during battle that wouldn’t lose out to the humans. Gi Gu’s leadership skills are truly something. His army alone numbers 3,000. With the addition of human soldiers after the war with Pena, Felduk currently numbers 3,500 men strong. With over 300 rare class goblins and 3 noble class goblins, Gi Gu’s army is the biggest among the four generals.
The army led by the goblin from the tribes, Ra Gilmi Fishiga, that was the nearest to the country the king is now aiming for, could be called a mixed army. This army is also known as the bow and arrow army of Fanzel. His army includes the demihuman tribes of the Fang Tribe (Werewolf) and the centaurs, as well as the Brawler Faction led by the duke class, Gi Zu Ruo.
He is currently working alongside the annexed orcs and the human guards situated by the border to suppress Germion Kingdom. If only the pure goblins were to be counted, Gilmi’s army would only number 500, as the goblins in his army only included him and his subordinates. The demihumans numbered 600. The orcs provided 400 soldiers. And the border guards numbered 500. All in all that totals to an army of 2,000 soldiers.
Shouldering the northeast of the ruled territories alongside the allies of the goblins, the Kushain Believers, was Gi Gi Orudo, who led the monster army, and Gi Jii Yubu, who led his regiol. These two goblins together led the twin-headed beast and axe army of Zelduk. The beast tamer goblins of the monster army number approximately 300. Within those over 20 were rare-class. Gi Jii Yubu’s regiol numbered 500, but they had over 40 goblins that were above rare-class.
This army revolves around the monsters more so than the goblins, so if one considered the humans and the monsters as a part of their army, then the total number is much greater. Gi Gi himself wasn’t exactly sure how many monster beasts there are, but the actual number should be somewhere between 2,000 to 3,000.
“As such, all of our armies number to about 10,000 men strong.”
At Pale’s words, the Goblin King nodded, urging her to continue.
Other than the cavalry of the king, there is another force aside from the main army that could be called a special unit. Although these people couldn’t be incorporated into the main army, these people were still brought together, as they had the necessary skills to organize the goblin army.
The Snow Demon Tribe (Yugushiva Tribe) provided 200 warriors. They were originally barbarians living north of Germion Kingdom, but by cooperating with the Goblin King, they were able get a territory of their own at the western region. With an easier environment to live in, they were able to increase their numbers. Their children grew into warriors, doubling their previous army of 100 into 200, allowing them to provide that much soldiers to the goblin forces.
The strongest goblin among the tribes, Rashka, who led the Gaidga Tribe, provided 400 soldiers. They were giants as far as goblins were concerned and possessed a strength that could be likened to that of orcs. Their chief, Rashka, is a lord class goblin, the second highest class next to the king.
Gi Ji Arsil the Hidden Blade’s assassin unit were able to increase their numbers to 200, and are now able to work as an intelligence unit that’s fighting on two fronts. Gi Ji personally led the low ranked goblins and expanded toward the northeast protected by Gi Gi Orudo. As for the ones that evolved within his unit, Gi Ji sent them to the frontlines of the western region.
They are meant to be reserved forces, but some goblins were also tasked to be guards for the trade routes at the Forest of Darkness. The rare class goblins under the king’s direct command, Gi Ah the One Who Encroaches into the Divine Region (Divine Invader) and Gi Ii the Explorer, led the goblins to guard the trade routes between the elven villages, the demihuman villages, and the colonial city, Middled.
