Facing the approaching Wind Dragon Legion, the Warlock Fortress just dispatched dozens of griffins. No matter strength or quantity, these griffins were far inferior to the Wind Dragon Legion. They wore strange hoods on their heads. The riders on their backs also wore masks and carried a huge cylinder.
The cylinder behind the riders began to eject a thick smoke, floating around in the air. These mists seemed to have a special composition as it was difficult to dissipate. Soon, a thick sea of mist formed over the Warlock Fortress like a dark cloud, concealing the situation inside.
The Wind Dragon Legion had come to the sea of mist. The leader, Legion Commander Argon, was suspicious as he looked at these dense mist. He commanded the army to circle in place while he chanted spells silently. A small whirlwind appeared in front. Wherever the whirlwind went, the mist dissipated as if it was torn apart, then it soon closed again. However, there was no ambush. The griffin that had been covered in the mist just now seemed to have left as well.
“Dust of sound wave grass?” Argon took a piece of mist and sniffed it. He was determined in his mind. The sound wave grass was a relatively common plant. Its dust could be suspended in the air in the form of smoke and had the special effect of spreading and amplifying sound. It was commonly used in some magic communication items, and more importantly, it was not poisonous.
“Want to delay the time to deal with the infantry? A poor deceptive tactic!” This was the battlefield. It was a felony to miss the most advantageous period. Argon made a firm decision and ordered the Wind Dragon Legion to move forward, but they did not advance at full speed out of caution.
The Wind Dragon Legion entered the sea of mist. Due to the sound wave grass, Argon was able to clearly feel the situation of his nearby companions. No doubt they did not encounter an ambush.
At this moment, the wyvern beneath him suddenly began to scowl uneasily which affected all the other wyverns. A dangerous omen surged in Argon’s mind as he loudly ordered the team to proceed carefully.
As soon as Argon finished commanding, he suddenly felt a terrifying breath, and saw a huge vague figure appearing in front of him. Before he could make the next reaction, a certain kind of air wave surged out violently. The surrounding mist was instantly dissipated by the terrifying sound wave, and the giant figure became clear.
This was a terrifying giant dragon with brown scales. There was a row of short horns on its head and fins on its cheeks. It wore a set of black armor. It flapped its huge wings, and its dark golden snake eyes exuded a sharp murderous intent.
Argon’s visual image was frozen in this scene. In the next second, there was a sudden “boom” in his brain as if something exploded. The entire world seemed to be turned upside down; his mind was blank, then he heard nothing. The only thing that could be felt was the severe tremor deep in his soul.
The entire battlefield heard that terrifying roar. This roar with special deterrence lasted for a few minutes. The sound was so strong after being amplified by that sound wave grass dust that the soldiers below threw their weapons to cover their ears in pain. The weaker one was stunned and fainted on the spot.
In the sea of mist, the wyverns and griffins fell like hailstones. Many unlucky soldiers that were hit were injured and fractured.
Argon’s mutated wyvern flopped its wings crookedly, and it couldn’t hold any longer in the end. It fell straight down.
Even the soldiers on the Warlock Fortress who had put on earplugs in advance before the mist spread still showed uncomfortable expressions. Only the gluttonous vines were unaffected and became more manic in devouring the nearby soldiers who had lost their resistance.
In front of the Town Nimbus magic mirror, the 3 leaders of the Bloody Empire were all baffled, “What happened?”
The magic mirror couldn’t transmit sound, so the 3 of them didn’t hear the terrifying roar. They only saw the Wind Dragon Legion falling like rain shortly after entering the mist.
With just 1 blow, the entire Wind Dragon Legion was defeated, including the Argon of the early stage of the Demon Overlord. Even a peak stage Demon Overlord could not do it. What kind of weapon or powerhouse is this?
The dragon, who just unleashed his prowess, was secretly rejoicing. This blow just now was the profound meaning of the [Raging Dragon Roar] imparted to him by Dragon Emperor Auglas. The ability to attack the enemy with a mix of dragon demeanor and sound. Plus the effect of sound wave grass dust, this move was devastating.
After transforming back into a human form, the dragon flew back to the fortress silently, but in his mind he wondered how to brag about his great achievement of smashing the army with a roar in front of someone next time.
The mist in the sky gradually dissipated, and there was nothing inside. The siege equipment and the Bloody Empire soldiers on the wall below were almost completely dead under the attack of the gluttonous vines.
Finally, the retreat horn sounded at the back. Seeing the enemy troops gradually retreating, the defending soldiers of the Warlock Fortress cheered…
The Dark Shadow Empire, Jergal Fortress.
Unlike the overall urban architecture of the Warlock Fortress, the core of the Jergal Fortress was the giant castle in the center, surrounded by barracks and fortifications.
The highest command of the castle.
“What?” The Dark Shadow Empire’s First General Broc showed a disbelief look as he listened to the guard’s report, “Loki?”
“Yes, General Loki has returned to the fortress, asking to see general outside the castle.”
Broc’s brows frowned. Loki. Leviathan used to be his most powerful deputy, but about 2 years ago, Loki suddenly disappeared. There was no more news after that. He didn’t expect Loki to be back in the fortress.
Broc knew very well that Loki was actually sent out by him secretly. At that time, Broc took his father-in-law, Frentz, and his wife to Jergal Fortress on the grounds that his father-in-law was unwell. In fact, they were taken hostages. This made Catherine unable to punish Broc to avoid harm to the innocent, but she responded immediately by betrothing Fini to him. Asmodeus, the daughter of Rummenigge, a senior master of the Mechanic Association, to First General Broc as a concubine.
Broc claimed to have a deep relationship with his wife, Medilu, and declined the marriage granted by the empress, then he asked Catherine the Great on behalf of his subordinates, Loki, to marry Fini as the legal wife. Upon Catherine the Great’s serious consideration, she agreed to Broc’s request and agreed to Loki to go to the capital to marry Fini.
This marriage seemed simple. In the game between Broc and Catherine, Fini was sacrificed. Surprisingly, Fini eloped with Monroe, Fini’s childhood sweetheart and the son of Third General Crawford. This was originally expected by Broc. Therefore, Loki was secretly sent to hunt down and kill Monroe and Fini, then let their bodies appear in the Dark Moon Estate so as to dissolve Catherine’s secret means. At the same time, it would affect the cooperative relationship between the Dark Moon and Bloody Vine Flower Estate.
It happened that Chen Rui went to Town Leia to participate in the plants trade fair. He killed the traitors next to Monroe in the Dark Moon territory, defeated Loki, and saved the young couple. Monroe was grateful for his life-saving grace and devoted himself to the Dark Moon.
Loki was controlled by Chen Rui with the God-Eating Mask and became a puppet. Of course, Broc didn’t know this.
Broc also didn’t know that Her Majesty Empress and the Fallen Angel Empire’s ‘envoy’, who should be far away in the capital, had come to the Thunder Estate in the east of Jergal Fortress through a secret teleportation array.
“Did Loki bring anyone else back?”
“No, General Loki came back alone.”
“Let him wait for me in the side hall.”
Now that the Fallen Angel Empire and the Bloody Empire were at war, the Dark Shadow Empire was stocking heavily in the southeast, preparing to attack the Fallen Angel Empire. The Jergal Fortress was the most important line of defense at the border with the Bloody Empire. In this sensitive period, the sudden appearance of Loki, who had been missing for a long time, made Broc feel suspicious.
Soon, Broc met Loki in the side hall.
When Loki saw Broc, he quickly saluted, “General!”
Broc glanced at him and said flatly, “You are back.”
Since entering, Broc had been carefully observing Loki, feeling that the opponent had no flaws in strength, movement details and tone. It should be the Loki whom he was familiar with. He nodded immediately, “I want to hear the explanation of your disappearance for 2 years.”
When Loki looked around, Broc waved his hand and the guards retreated.
Then only Loki spoke up, “At the beginning, I was ordered by sir to intercept and hunt Monroe and Fini. I ended up encountering a terrifying dragon in the Dark Moon. I managed to flee desperately, then I wanted to wait for an opportunity to make a secret move. I didn’t expect Monroe to join the Dark Moon. After my ambush failed, I nearly died and had to run away. Later, I was captured by a man and was forced to join a secret organization. I have been unable to get out… until now.
Broc raised his brows, “Secret organization?”
“It’s an honor, general. In a sense, we are still colleagues because…” Loki’s eyes turned to Broc’s face, “Because the man who captured me was called Azgalor… Azgalor. Beelzebub.”
“Beelzebub Royal Family?” Broc’s eyes squinted, “I don’t understand what you mean. It seems that you need to write a report on these experiences and submit it to Her Majesty Empress.”
Loki shook his head and didn’t continue on this topic, “In any case, I’m from the Leviathan Royal Family and also general’s right-hand man. I will try my best to help general.”
“Really?” Broc’s voice suddenly became cold, and an icy breath gradually spread. The temperature of the entire room suddenly dropped and began to freeze.
Loki didn’t expect that. Broc would still make things difficult for him without warning after he explained it this way. There was already a pair of gloves in his hand, and his whole body was emitting a faint blue light. He tried his best to resist the cold breath, but his body still could not resist and gradually stiffened. His feet had frozen into ice, and the ice surface was still spreading upward.
As soon as Loki gritted his teeth, the pupil and white of his right eye suddenly turned black. As a strange strength spread out, the speed of freezing was immediately relieved a lot.
Broc sneered as his pupils turned black. Loki screamed, and blood oozed from his right eye. Though both were also [The Eye of Incubus], Loki and Broc were not on the same level in terms of quality or quantity.
Seeing his life on the line, Loki yelled out 3 words vigorously in his throat, “Illusive Demon Shield!”
Broc suddenly stopped his power, and his pupils instantly returned to their original blue. The ice on Loki’s body slowly melted.
“General’s test should be over.” Loki wiped the blood from his right eye and said lightly, “As for other matters… I’m a little tired, general.”
“[The Eye of Incubus] and water element proficiency. These 2 royal talents cannot be faked, you are no doubt Loki.” A smile appeared on Broc’s gloomy face as if the killing move just now was really just a test of identity, ” Very good, go and rest first, General Loki.”
Loki bowed slightly and turned away.
Looking at Loki’s back, Broc’s eyes turned ghastly.
TL: No way Broc can be fooled by this, maybe he is just waiting to see what the opponent’s intention…
