The training field of the Bloody Empire was actually an arena, but it was much larger than the ancient arena of the Dark Moon.
To Chen Rui’s surprise, 4 huge magic crystal screens were actually hung around the training field. They could show the battle in the field from 4 angles.
Live TV broadcast?
When Chen Rui just saw the 4 magic crystal screens, the first idea that came to his mind was that he met a fellow crossover. However, he quickly rejected this idea himself because these 4 screens were the very common magic circle, [Mirror Image], and there was no sound. The principle was similar to the recording stone, but there were no more “modern” elements.
It was said that this was the design of the genius prince Teris. It was also a brilliant idea.
The huge training field could accommodate a considerable number of spectators, but there was a place that was isolated at any time. That was the northernmost throne area.
Sitting on the throne today was the top powerhouse of the Demon Overlord, Bloody Empire Lord Raizen. Mammon.
Raizen’s appearance was a bit different from Chen Rui’s imagination. He was not tall, and he had long black hair. His face was quite ordinary without any special mighty appearance. Perhaps due to the psychological effect, Raizen just sat there ordinarily, but he gave Chen Rui, who was faraway among the spectators, a faint deterrent feeling.
Several princes were sitting on both sides of Raizen; all of whom looked extraordinary. The front left and right were Aleus and Edmund. Teris was among them in the last seat on the lower right.
This reminded Chen Rui of the battle of the 9 princes in the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty. It was just that Raizen, who possessed powerful force, was more deterrent. It depended on how these princes stood out in the competition.
In the training field, 2 wisps of strange mist halos entangled. The two figures collided and separated quickly. The surrounding ground trembled slightly, but there were only slight cracks. It seemed that the training field far exceeded the Dark Moon’s standard whether in terms of materials or the protection of the magic circles. Even the battle of the Demon Emperor-level territory power couldn’t cause large-scale damage on it.
The 2 were Adelaide and Bubowa who were competing for the third general.
To be precise, this was already the second battle. The first battle was commanding army while the second was for personal combat power. The companding army’s competing method also surprised Chen Rui a little. They were actually competing with the battle ball.
In the end, Bubowa Team of mutated Great Demon defeated the Adelaide Royal Family Team by 3:1.
Strictly speaking, the Bloody Empire’s battle ball standard was fairly average, and their techniques were rough, but it was worth noting that the Bloody Empire players were quite strong and high-spirited. The powerful pressure other than the battle ball skills was lacking in the Dark Shadow Empire and the Fallen Angel Empire’s teams. The Bloody Empire Army was known as the most powerful army among the 3 empires which was evident from this.
Judging from the hot scenes of the audience in the training field, the popularity of the battle ball in the Bloody Empire was even higher than expectation. The Bloody Empire had also opened up several large professional battle ball fields. The venues for the competition were very up to standard. It seemed that they put a lot of effort in it. As for the battle ball, it could only be purchased from the Dark Moon at a high price.
When Chen Rui was thinking about whether to open a battle ball merchandise store in the Bloody Empire, the initial stalemate in the field had changed. Bubowa’s [Flame Territory] power was drastically reduced, and Adelaide’s body was emitting tons of black silk which wrapped up Bubowa.
Adelaide had already lost to Bubowa in the previous war game, so he must not be defeated again in this round. His own strength alone was slightly better, and he also carried the bloodline talent [Light of Sin] and [Dark Mastery] of the Mammon Royal Family, so he was determined to win.
[Light of Sin] was a talent that weakened the opponents. It could even restrain the [War Puppet] of the Asmodeus Royal Family to a certain extent. In the territory created from this talent power, Bubowa’s power had been firmly suppressed. He was unable to reverse the situation.
After all, the royal family had a natural advantage in combat. Not only they had unlimited potential, but they also had various bloodline talents. Compared with these, the rest of the demons did suffer many disadvantages.
Chen Rui’s mind moved slightly. With his eyesight, he could see that although Bubowa’s strength was inferior, he would not be defeated so quickly. He must have another plan.
Sure enough, with Adelaide’s winning ticket in hand, a crackling sound suddenly sounded. The black silks in the sky were on fire. The flames were blazing in the black cluster, and a dazzling figure was rushing toward Adelaide like lightning. When Adelaide felt the intense crisis, he shouted and a lot of black light was launched from his fist at Bubowa.
Bubowa suddenly disappeared and appeared behind his enemy as he passed through Adelaide. In the blink of an eye, all the halos disappeared at the same time, leaving only 2 figures standing in place blankly.
Adelaide slowly turned around and looked at Bubowa coldly. With a shake of his body, there were explosion sounds. His blood splashed, but he stood still and said in a deep voice, “I didn’t expect that you can actually find the exact flaw of my territory. You actually didn’t hesitate to burn your vitality to fight for a blow when you act defeated. Unfortunately, there is 1 thing you still miscalculated, that is, I have awakened the [Immortal Body].”
[Immortal] Body was one of the 3 bloodline talents of the Mammon Royal Family. It was said that one could be immortal when the highest level was achieved. Of course, it might be an exaggeration, otherwise the Mammon Royal Family would be full of immortal monsters. However, the Immortal Body could greatly enhance endurance and recovery ability, and it granted resistance to ordinary curses or poison. This was publicly recognized. It could be said to be a very practical bloodline talent, but compared to [Dark Mastery] and [Light of Sin], the awakening of this talent was much more difficult.
Blood began to flow out of Bubowa’s seven orifices. He felt a strong sense of enfeeblement, and his body shook. He tried his best to hold on and not fall down. Burning one’s vitality was not a joke. He knew that his strength was weaker than Adelaide, so he made a desperate move by surprise. Unfortunately, he didn’t foresee that the opponent had awakened the [Immortal Body], and he couldn’t knock Adelaide down with a single blow.
“I lost.” Bubowa gave up and uttered 2 words arduously. In fact, he had tried his best.
At present, the 2 sides had won 1 round each, so it was a tie, and there was no third round. It was up to Raizen to judge. For a while, the training field was quiet, and almost everyone’s eyes fell on the supreme emperor.
“In the face of absolute strength, no matter how clever the plan is, it is only futile.” Raizen’s faint voice sounded through the audience. “In the third general battle this time, Adelaide won.”
The most important thing for an empire’s general was not personal force, but the means to lead and control the army during the war. Generally, the generals were the core of controlling the overall situation in wars. They would not simply charge themselves. They had specialized skills. It was difficult to find a reliable candidate who was proficient in strategy and was extremely powerful. Therefore, under normal circumstances, the generals of the 3 great empires of the Demon Realm were not particularly outstanding in terms of their personal strength. They were all between the peak stage of the Demon Emperor and the early stage of the Demon Overlord.
Raizen the Great had now chosen Adelaide, who had stronger personal power and weaker in military strategy and commanding army. Although it did not seem very reasonable, everyone present, including Bubowa himself, did not feel that there was anything “unreasonable” because this was Raizen the Great’s decision.
This was the powerhouse.
Bubowa sighed and smiled bitterly. In fact, he had already guessed the result after losing to Adelaide. Not only because of the emperor’s consistent style of advocating power, but more importantly, Adelaide was the royal family of the Bloody Empire. He was destined to have advantages in some aspects that a mutated Great Demon like him couldn’t match.
Among the 3 generals of the empire, First General Gustav pledged allegiance to the Samael Royal Family, while Second General Meister was more mysterious. His usual whereabouts were kept secret. Others would do the work of conveying orders and training troops. Unless it was a special expedition, he would not show up. It was said that apart from Raizen the Great, no one had seen this person’s true face before.
It was naturally more appropriate that their own Mammon Royal Family held this third general position. Unless Bubowa could win 2 rounds in a row without dispute in front of everyone, the general position was basically beyond reach for him.
Bubowa was disappointed in his heart, but what he worried most was another thing- Adelaide is a relatively calculative man. Today, I almost let him return with defeat. In the future, I’m afraid my days in the Bloodwave Legion under the third general will only be tough.
At this moment, a gentle voice from Raizen’s side sounded, “Father, Sir Bubowa, who is proficient in military strategy and commanding army, left a deep impression. General Gustav’s Rage Flame Legion is missing exactly 1 military strategist, I want to recommend him to serve. I wonder if father can approve it?”
The person who spoke was Young Prince Teris. As Bubowa was worried that Adelaide would mess with him when Adelaide became the third general, he was extremely willing when he heard that he could go to the Rage Flame Legion of First General Gustav in order to avoid Adelaide, but he dared not to show it.
Second Prince Edmund frowned and said, “Father, Bubowa has been in the Bloodwave Legion for many years and knows everything about legion affairs and personnel. Now that Adelaide is new to the office, he is not familiar with Bloodwave Legion. I think it is better for Bubowa to continue to stay in the Bloodwave to assist Adelaide.”
The Bloodwave Legion was one of the 3 legions and also a military force under the direct jurisdiction of Edmund. Although First General Gustav was not affiliated with the Great Prince Aleus, Gustav was close to Teris, which also represented the closeness to Aleus. Edmund couldn’t just watch the talents like Bubowa went to the “hostile” forces.
Edmund’s words made Bubowa look bitter. Although he was considered an important figure in the military, he couldn’t control his fate at this moment.
Raizen ignored Edmund, but glanced at his youngest son. A strange light flashed across his eyes as he said calmly, “Teris, you have already broken through to the Demon Emperor?”
As soon as these words came out, many audiences turned their attention to Teris. The genius prince who has been wandering in the Great Demon King stage finally broke through the bottleneck. In this way, the weakest prince has also reached the Demon Emperor level.
Several princes looked at Teris with a little more vigilant or unkind gaze. This extremely clever brother in other aspects is limited in training talent. He had been stuck in the Great Demon King realm for many years, but now he broke through silently to reach the Demon Emperor realm. It seems that we need to be more careful in the future.
Only Aleus and Edmund were concerned by it. Teris’ training talent was publicly known. After so long, he had just arrived at the Demon Emperor realm. It was far from the Demon Overlord level, so in this respect, he wasn’t a threat.
Especially Aleus, who had the same mother as Teris, had a very good relationship. If Teris got stronger, it also meant that his assistance was greater; it was favorable to him.
Hearing the news, Chen Rui’s eyes narrowed slightly. Teris advanced at this time? Doesn’t it seems too much of a “coincident”?
Gustav; “Bridget”; The Water Elemental King’s words, “someone who needs dark power to break through the bottleneck”; Teris’ advancement to the Demon Emperor… These keywords were getting clearer in his mind.
When many coincidences come together, they are not necessarily true coincidences.
Teris still kept a calm smile as he bowed calmly and said, “Yes, father really has great insight. I just came back from outside some time ago, and I haven’t had the time to tell father.”
“Very good,” Raizen nodded slightly, “Then, I will grant your request.”
Judging from Raizen’s tone, he agreed to this “irrelevant” request because Teris had reached the Demon Emperor stage. However, Edmund did not dare to express the slightest objection because once Raizen decided something, he would never change it.
Bubowa secretly breathed a sigh of relief, showing gratefulness to Teris.
At this time, the most important backbone of the Bloodwave Legion switched to the Rage Flame Legion. This weakened Edmund and strengthened Aleus. Several princes seemed envious of Aleus for having such a brilliant younger brother. Even if these brothers combined, it would be difficult for them to be his opponent.
Chen Rui was thinking about a question. When Azgalor came to the Dark Moon to win me over, he made a statement in the name of the Red Leaf Chamber of Commerce in the Bloody Empire. He also said that the Great Prince Aleus is behind the Red Leaf Chamber of Commerce. Does this mean the mysterious leader of “Bloodfall” is the Bloody Empire’s Great Prince Aleus?
Chen Rui immediately rejected this hypothesis. Although Aleus has reached the Demon Overlord level, he is far below Azgalor and Manu at the peak stage realm. Furthermore, there are also unruly members like the crystal dragon Jacob. It is impossible to suppress these people by solely relying on the power of Aleus. The one who can suppress these peak stage of the Demon Overlord powerhouses…
Chen Rui’s eyes turned to the throne in the distance. Could it be…
If it is “him.” Some doubts can be explained, but there are more new doubts. Chen Rui felt a headache for a while. At this time, Great Prince Aleus had officially announced Adelaide as the new third general of the Empire, the Bloodwave Legion’s leader. Raizen personally awarded Adelaide the corresponding medal and saber.
Second Prince Edmund also announced afterward that the Bloody Empire’s trade fair, which was in preparation for a long time, would officially start in 2 days.
Perhaps due to the influence of the Dark Moon auction and trade fair, the Bloody Empire and Dark Shadow Empire held auctions at the same time. The Bloody Empire’s trade fair was about to begin.
Chen Rui heard Tess talked about this trade fair. The scale seemed to be quite large. It just so happened he could take this opportunity to inquire about Mountain Seckred and Fertile Yuan Soil.
Another “convenient” auction for Chen Rui to collect items?
