Chapter 93
 
I had a feeling the trickshot gun will come into play. As a reminder, it has 4 ammo types: Flash, Sound, Tear Gas and Capture Net
(Sound was translated as "Bang" by MangaStream, for some reason)
 
It's poetic for Nameless to be the one to fire the finishing blow.
Farewell Lewis. You were a great antagonist, but you had to go.

Well then, time to see how many of my prior concerns will come into play:
  1. Emma and the injured Grand Valley kids will need more time to rest before the company can depart Goldy Pond for the Safehouse
  2. In the meantime, the remaining fighters will have to watch out for the rest of Bayon's servants
  3. By the time the company has reached the Safehouse, Emma and Ray will have received the "transmission" from Adam, and will set out for Lambda. Possibly with more party members too.

Chapter 94
 
Glad that Nameless and Lucas got their reunion, in relative peace.
Interesting that Lewis had met Sung Joo and Musica before.
 
I forgot to comment on this last chapter, but Ray's feelings on even losing both Norman and Emma is interesting to behold.
Keep in mind that this was the kid who was willing to die to keep the two of them alive. For him to inversely be the only one left alive while being unable to save either of them must be infuriating.
 
Can't say I didn't see this coming, what with the injured not fit to travel and Bayon's servants. But this is faster than I thought.
 
In some ways, the taste of this dilemma has a faint resemblance to mid-late game Gash Bell battles: the enemy is out of the competition, but they'll use whatever strength they have left to screw over the allies, resulting in incomplete victories.

Well then, we have 3 possible routes from Goldy Pond to the Shelter:
 
(A) A 21 day roundabout route that is comparatively easier and safer (mentioned in Ch 60)
( B ) The 4 day route that Emma, Ray and Nameless originally used, which requires expert skills
( C ) A 1.5 day route that will probably require master skills
 
Of these, all of the non-combatants can only take (A). The other 2 will undoubtedly result in casualties.
 
Furthermore, while Ray can serve as a standalone guide for ( B ), Nameless is definitely necessary for one of (A) or ( C ).
While I would like to think a 2 team approach is possible (so that one team can reach the Shelter faster), it wouldn't be enough due to reasons explained below
 
---
 
Combatants active:
  • Nameless
  • Lucas
  • Ray
  • Nigel
  • Violet
  • Adam
 
Combatants injured:
  • Emma (wounded by Lewis)
  • Oliver (wounded by Bayon)
  • Zack (wounded by Bayon)
  • Gillian (wounded by Bayon)
  • Pepe (wounded by Bayon and Lewis)
  • Sandy (wounded by Nous)
  • Sonia (wounded by Nous)
  • Paula (wounded by Nous)
 
So, how to deal with the 8 injured? It's either:
 
(i) Leave them behind at Goldy Pond and somehow find a way to return later with medical supplies, hoping they're still alive and free
(ii) Forcibly bring them along after applying first aid
 
With Emma among the wounded, there's no way they'll all be left behind. But if only Emma is brought along, she's going to be stigmatised as an author's pet for this act of favouritism for the rest of the story.
Yet, (ii) doesn't seem possible with any of the 3 routes. (A) takes too long, while ( B ) and ( C ) carry too much danger from wild demons.
 
How is this dilemma going to be resolved?
