Experiment and restriction.
The unidentified life forms were quite small in size.
From the results of yesterday’s investigation by various means, we knew that they were about the size of the fairies.
Although they had the means to nullify sorcery, it seems that they were not able to influence physical phenomena.
To avoid being noticed, we carefully and cautiously investigated the area where the sorcery was being disabled, by blowing wind to an extent that it appeared to be natural beforehand and sending leaves and other objects into the wind.

And the most important thing we found in the investigation was that the sorcery nullifying methods used by the opposing side had the properties of a mist.
As a characteristic of a mist, it is easily swept away by a strong wind, and if it is dispersed, its ability to nullify sorcery becomes extremely weak.
Once the space gets filled with my sorcery, the extent of the ability to nullify the sorcery will be better understood.
The constant use of exploration sorcery was camouflage, and it didn’t seem to matter how much I filled the space with sorcery since they didn’t seem to be surprised by it.
With their sorcery nullification, they can nullify any kind of sorcery, so they didn’t seem to have anything to fear.

Just the word “mist” brings to mind the existence of the White Mist that invaded Mireilleoryl’s world.
And they were as big as the fairies.

When Mireilleoryl first saw the fairies, she immediately took up a battle stance.
She also said that she mistook them for the evil race.

 

“I guess the other party must be the evil race.”
“The question is, why did they come at us?”

 

This was the evil race that was hostile towards Mireilleoryl’s world.
I’m sure they have some relationship to the white mist, simply from the fact that sorcery nullification has similar characteristics to the mist.
From the information I learned from Mireilleoryl, it seems that the evil race is a troublesome race of liars.

For the Dragon tribe, which can crystallize magical power to dramatically increase their fighting ability, the ability to nullify sorcery may not have been very effective.
That’s probably why they were attacking indirectly rather than fighting heads-on.
As such, they may have been perceived as troublesome opponents by the Dragon tribe.
Because war wasn’t just about fighting directly.

If information warfare and sabotage were the main focus, the ability to nullify sorcery would be quite troublesome in a world where sorcery was much more developed than science.
In fact, the world where Mireilleoryl comes from was also well-developed in sorcery, but actually had no science to speak of.
In fact, their civilization, which is based on sorcery, seems to be developed much higher than the civilization of Auriol.

If sorcery gets disabled in a world like that, it would cause a considerable loss of strength.
According to Mireilleoryl, no race except the Dragon tribe was capable of retaliating.

 

“Rather, why are they here?”
“Did they come by sticking close to Mirei?”
“Rather, I think it would be better to say that Miss Mireilleoryl was swept to the Forest next to the world by the evil race.”

 

To begin with, the destination of the Dragon tribe’s secret technique of the Inter-dimensional movement sorcery was Auriol.
I know that I am still working on improving the Inter-dimensional movement sorcery, but the destination is not something that can be changed so easily.
It is very dangerous and delicate sorcery, because the slightest change in coordinates or even the tiniest mistake would lead to a completely unknown space or dimension.

But if you are the evil race that is good at indirect means of combat, then maybe it is doable. If so, I would like… that knowledge.

 

“Ah~… speaking of which, isn’t this place too narrow?”
“Endure, Kuti. We have it much worse.”
“Reki, why don’t you roll up a little more?”
“Wafu~”
“That’s not possible, he says~”
“Is that so?”

 

The first earth dome was built to prevent escape, so it was quite large, but the defensive dome I built after that is frankly narrow.
Reki-kun could just barely curl up in it.
Of course, we had no choice but to take shelter on top of the curled up Reki-kun, which was quite crowded.
It also completely blocked out any air, so we’d be suffocated soon if we didn’t have space suit sorcery applied to all of us.
I don’t need it, but everyone else does, so I had equipped all sets with a light, too.

 

“If possible, I would like to render them powerless so we could get information from them, but…”
“It’s unknown what other secrets they are still hiding. Ojousama, please proceed carefully.”
“Yeah.”

 

Pushed away by the strong wind, the sorcery nullification mist released by the evil race has been already been dispelled.
However, the evil race appears to wear the sorcery nullification mist all over their bodies by default, or perhaps they nullify the exploration sorcery unconsciously, even when they are unable to move due to being slammed against the outer dome wall.
If we don’t do something about that mist, it would be difficult to examine the opponent in detail.
As Scarlet said, as long as we don’t know what they are capable of doing, we should proceed with caution.
