Zeta didn’t understand what “10,000 black crystal coins” meant. Faced with the girl’s powerful and determined punch, he instinctively felt an unprecedented danger. He quickly activated the bloodline talent of the great demons, teleportation, and barely avoided this blow.
With the power level of Demon Overlord and his talent, he teleported very far away this time, but he could not escape the strong senses of the girl. She immediately estimated the position of Zeta’s teleportation, jumped into the air, and closed the gap in the blink of an eye.
This flying ability made Zeta’s eyelids flicker. The magic wand in his hand emitted strong wind magical fluctuations, and an extremely strong blue lightning struck the girl.
The girl didn’t dodge the lightning as if she didn’t see it. She also didn’t activate any defensive or dodge means, allowing the lightning to strike her body.
“Buzz buzz buzz buzz…”
Admist the lightning arcs, the girl shook the remaining electric sparks on her body casually as if a breeze just blew past her. She flew toward Zeta with the same speed.
Zeta could hardly believe his eyes. This lightning seems ordinary, but it is my compound magic from my proud research. In addition to lightning, it also contains the power of the water element which is several times more powerful than ordinary lightning magic. Even a powerhouse of the same level can’t take it head-on without dodging, but the girl did just that.
At this time Zeta could no longer use the great demon’s teleport talent, but he still had the teleportation magic. He teleported far away once again. The moment he stabilized his figure, he quickly charged another magic. Several groups of poison clouds mixed with white mist sprayed out, wrapping up the girl.
This was a combination of the 2 magics “[Poison Cloud]” and “[Freezing Ice Explosion]”, but unfortunately it was still useless. The girl walked through the bursting poison clouds casually without even a tear on the cloak she was wearing.
There was already cold sweat on Zeta’s back. He teleported away once again without using attack magic. Deceleration, weakening, and curse technique… were all launched at the girl he tried to disrupt the opponent’s tempo.
The girl tanked all the magics as before, but she was a little bored with the repeated useless moves of this enemy. She calculated the distance and came to Zeta in the blink of an eye with a punch in his face. Before the punch hit him, the terrifying fluctuation had made the space slightly distorted. Judging from the punch speed and power, it was not affected by the debuff magic at all. Zeta was shocked. Since he activated magic too quickly just now, it was too late to use the teleportation magic. He immediately hit the magic item on his body, and a round transparent magic shield immediately appeared around his body.
The girl’s punch hit the shield. The originally solid round shield turned into an oval shape under the extremely terrifying pressure. It was knocked far away with Zeta in it.
Although the shield blocked the punch, Zeta absolutely suffered some damages as if he was in a stormy sea; he could be crushed at any time. His nose and mouth could no longer bear the pressure and bleed.
The shield lost a lot of magic power under the pressure. It finally disappeared without a trace with a pop. Zeta almost fell to the ground as he lost his balance, feeling barely escaped from death.
Immune to magic and has powerful attack power. This is simply the nemesis of all magicians. How else can I fight against her?
Seeing the girl rushed over again, Zeta was so shocked that he was no longer bothered about Samoer. He burst his extraordinary potential, maximizing his flying skills to flee away with all his strength.
“Run away? This trick that will deduct my money is simply unforgivable!” The girl’s voice swiftly moved along Zeta’s figure. At a glance, she seemed to transform into a huge black cloud-like body, then there was a faint horrified scream…
Samoer had no time to pay attention to these. He didn’t even have the chance to have a fierce fight with the mysterious cloaked cavalry leader because there was a terrifying enemy wrapped in flames in front of him. The other party hadn’t used the territory yet, but the breath of power alone made Samoer’s territory shake. The Toro Family’s elder who surrendered to the Dark Moon, Demon Overlord Vanim!
I’m doomed! Completely doomed! Not only him, but the entire army.
The scorching flame power had wrapped Samoer’s territory tightly; there was no hope of escaping.
For some reason, Samoer suddenly thought of the scene of the encounter with the mysterious cavalry leader that night. Although today he saw the enemy cavalry leader wearing a cloak and the skill similar to [Magic Shadow Charge], a subtle feeling told him that his opponent that night was Nesta.
By now, the truth was no longer important because he was defeated.
The winner rules. It was as simple as that.
Even if he fled back to the Red Spirit City, there was only one result for him as a defeated general whose whole legion was wiped out. As for whether Nesta was innocent, it no longer had any meaning. There was also no good ending in surrendering to the Dark Moon. Let alone his feud with Nesta, the Dark Moon would sooner or later be destroyed with the capital’s power.
Samoer felt that his territory power was on the verge of collapse in the Demon Overlord flame. If he didn’t want to be captured alive as a prisoner, there was only one way left.
Samoer’s face showed a fierce and decisive look as he made the biggest and final decision in his life. The oppressed force of his whole body suddenly became manic as if it had rejuvenated. His blood vessels and muscles began to expand in a terrifying manner.
The one-sided battle was quickly over. 30,000 well-prepared elite soldiers against 10,000 exhausted soldiers without a leader, the result was expected.
A few days later.
Outside the Red Spirit City, the coalition army barrack.
Obsidian listened to the military report ahead with a pale face.
A total of 90,000 soldiers of the Nether Hydra Legion and 2 estates were wiped out.
The Nether Hydra Legion’s commander, Samoer, died.
The 2 lords, Sauter and Jox, were captured.
Demon Overlord Zeta, the elder of the Kamon Family, was captured.
Kanita, the heir of the Red Spirit Estate, died.
The Magic Shadow Legion’s commander, Nesta, led the 4,000 Magic Shadow Legion soldiers to surrender to the enemy.
This was a complete defeat. 90,000 soldiers were all annihilated without survivor.
Soon, the 3 people captured by the Dark Moon were released back, including the 2 lords and the Demon Overlord of the elder family. The Dark Moon publicly declared that Obsidian was the Dark Moon’s greatest enemy as he forced the lords and the elder family to conquer the Dark Moon. However, the Dark Moon had nothing against the other estates and elder families. In order to show the Dark Moon’s goodwill, the prisoners were released this time, but this would not be repeated. If the lords and the elder families insist on helping Obsidian’s tyranny, the Dark Moon would never be merciful again. Samoer’s ending was an example.
Although the 3 prisoners were released back, they were all restricted by a strange force. They were unable to exert their strength.
Obsidian and the lords learned about what happened in the battle from the 3 prisoners. This included the truth that Nesta was “framed” by Samoer’s private revenge and was finally forced to surrender to the enemy.
For some reasons, the truth was quickly publicized. The same went for the news of Kanita’s killing, the capital army’s various atrocities in the Red Spirit Estate, and so on. The entire Red Spirit Estate was discussing- Regent Obsidian forced his loyal minister to rebel and appointed villains who killed Kanita, the heir of the lord. The capital army is perverse and brutal. They are not as good as the “intruder”, Dark Moon…
In the presence of all the lords, the Red Spirit Lord Josh cried to Obsidian about the death of Kanita, his heir, and the various misdeeds of the Nether Hydra Legion in Town Mordo. This made Obsidian even more embarrassed. He almost had the impulse to regather the smashed pieces of Samoer’s self-destruction and whip his corpse. For the “victim” Josh, Obsidian could only do his best to console him by promising to personally preside over Kanita’s funeral and granting the title of the empire’s brave general. He also appointed Josh as the general affairs officer of the coalition army who would be in charge of passing orders and military supplies. This lucrative job could be regarded as a compensation for Josh.
When Josh was organizing Kanita’s funeral, something unexpected happened again. The Kamon Family’s elder, Demon Overlord Zeta, who was released back, died suddenly.
This incident caused a commotion among the elder families. In order to become an elder family, seniority and strength were the 2 biggest factors. The Demon Overlord was equivalent to the strongest pillar of the elder family. Now that Zeta had died suddenly, the Kamon Family and the other elder families would inevitably have suspicions in their minds.
Obsidian hurriedly held a military meeting. At the meeting, he angrily denounced the Dark Moon’s scheme against Zeta. Unfortunately, the elder families’ response to this was generally rather indifferent. The Dark Moon had already publicly announced the release of the elder family and the lord prisoners. Killing them at this time was self-defeating. Moreover, many people in the elder families had checked Zeta’s corpse. It was not the result of the restraints, and his physical appearance was unharmed too. However, his internal organs were shattered by someone. This kind of strength could only be done by at least a Demon Emperor level strength.
There is a Demon Emperor-level spy from the Dark Moon who lurked the coalition army and then killed the released prisoner, Zeta? Some representatives of the elder families couldn’t help but sneer.
Obsidian was not a fool. He saw the suspicion of the elder families, but he could only turn a blind eye to this. In the current situation, too many explanations would make him even more suspicious. He could only brush it off and swallow the bitter pill silently.
The focus of this military meeting was to discuss the issue of marching to the Dark Moon. The 2 defeats of the Magic Shadow Legion and the Nether Hydra Legion had dampened the spirits of the capital’s coalition army. On the other hand, the Dark Moon Army’s morale was high now, but this did not offset the disparity in strength between both sides.
The coalition army was desperately in need of a victory to boost morale. Deputy Commander Gerant said that now that the army had finished its rest and reorganization, it should be dispatched immediately to attack the Dark Moon.
Obsidian added another sentence: We will either not fight, if we do, we will wipe out the enemy with thunderous momentum.
The new general affairs officer, Josh, stood up. Firstly, he agreed with the proposal of going all out. At the same time, he pointed out that the Dark Moon was tricky and must not be underestimated. They must be mentally prepared for tough battles. Therefore, the logistics must be properly prepared and arranged. It was better to have more than less. For now, it would take some time to prepare.
Josh’s suggestion was to make all preparations before sending out the troops to destroy the Dark Moon in one fell swoop with minimal losses.
This suggestion from the experienced and steady lord was supported by most lords, especially after the lessons learned from the annihilation of Sauter and Jox’s army. The Dark Moon was definitely a tough opponent. It would be impossible to take down the Dark Moon without some sacrifices. Everyone wanted to reduce their own losses.
Gerant thought for a while and agreed. Obsidian saw a consensus and decided to take a temporary rest. After all the logistics materials were in place according to the standards proposed by Josh, the whole army would attack and wipe out the Dark Moon!
This intel appeared on the desktop of the Dark Moon palace council hall immediately. It was surrounded by the main members of the estate who were participating in the meeting.
The 2 great victories over the capital’s Magic Shadow Legion and Nether Hydra Legion inspired the Dark Moon Army. Nesta, who surrendered to the Dark Moon, was appointed as the Red Blood Legion deputy legion commander and cavalry commander.
Originally, the Dark Moon had 30,000 cavalries. This time, there were 4,700 cavalries who returned with Nesta, plus more than 7,000 of the Magic Shadow Cavalry initially captured in the Moonlight Fortress, the total was more than 40,000 cavalries.
Such re-use of a surrendered general showed Shea’s extraordinary courage. Nesta was very grateful and swore the blood oath of never betraying the Dark Moon in the name of the royal family in front of the Dark Moon ministers.
In addition to boosting the military morale, the surrender of the capital’s famous general also improved Shea’s influence power to a certain extent.
Shea was indeed a very courageous lord, but this appointment had nothing to do with courage because Nesta had already become the puppet of Chen Rui’s God-Eating Mask.
There were two puppets of the God-Eating Mask initially. One was the capable general under the Midnight Sun, the peak stage of the Demon Overlord Loki; the other was Kanita, the son of the Red Spirit Lord Josh. Due to the limited number of puppets, Chen Rui ended Kanita’s life before turning Nesta into a puppet.
As for Kanita, who later appeared in front of Samoer, it was the slime that could transform into any form. The slime first pretended to be the lord and was domineering in the Red Spirit Estate for a while, then he followed Royce as a bystander silently. Now he worked very hard in front of his owner. From the beginning where he rushed out and fell “tragically” in the end, every line and every action was on point. He successfully fulfilled the historical mission of “Kanita”.
Those arrows were actually just like tickling to Dodo who was immortal.
With the puppets who were obliged to obey and the character who could transform freely, the Bloodmist Valley was actually a good show to lure the capital army. Only the cavalries of the Magic Shadow Legion were kept in the dark.
That night, Samoer saw the real Nesta outside Town Mordo, but the cavalry were the Dark Moon soldiers. In the end, Samoer was lured into the Black Mountain Forest. The 90,000 soldiers on the expedition were wiped out. The indignated Magic Shadow Cavalry also truly surrendered to the Dark Moon.
In this scene, the Red Spirit Lord Josh was the most authentic character. It was precisely because of this that he could confidently make suggestions in front of Obsidian. If he was a puppet or disguise, perhaps he would be unable to fool the capital’s powerhouses.
As early as after the war of lords, the seriously injured Josh was imprisoned. Dodo pretended to be Josh, and Kanita’s fake rebellion was used to get rid of Josh’s confidante and to help Royce and others to the upper position. He succeeded in fully controlling the situation of the Red Spirit Estate without raising the capital’s suspicion.
In order to save his life, Josh chose to surrender and became Chen Rui’s servant, and he took a chronic poison from Paglio, then only he was allowed to return to the position of lord. In fact, he was a puppet manipulated by the Dark Moon.
Out of the 4 major estates of the empire, Shea already accounted for 3.
In the capital’s crusade against the Dark Moon, Josh became the most important piece of chess. Using Kanita’s death, he got an important position and schemed Zeta. This further deepened the conflict between the elder families and Obsidian. At present, Josh’s main task was to continue lurking. This chess piece would never be moved until the most critical time.
“Chen Rui stays; the rest can go.” Shea said lightly while looking at the latest intel.
Everyone got up and retreated. The wonderful eyes behind the veil of Isabella glanced at Shea lightly and paused briefly on Chen Rui’s face before she walked away.
Dodo came back with realistic transformation and superb acting skills 🤣
