Facing the army of hobbits surrounding the front and back, Zola stretched out her index finger and drew 2 circles. There was no special power, but all the hobbits suddenly stopped. The 2 teams at the front and back also stopped at the same time.
It was not just as simple as just stopping. Under the moonlight, it could be clearly seen that their bodies had gradually shrunk. Even those bear cavalry were no exception; they had sunk into the ground.
The raging shouts of the hobbits and the roars of the war bears sounded everywhere. Although they only sank halfway, the weight of the body suddenly increased several times, so they could not move even a muscle.
For a time, all the hobbit troops ‘stood still’ in place. Even those powerhouses that launched the Saint breath were no exception.
The people near the carriage were also stunned. This mysterious beauty with a veil just stretched out a finger, and the entire hobbit army…
With such a powerful aoe attack, the people on our side have no effect or feeling at all?
Bedell was especially shocked. He graduated from Starlight College and became famous as a teenager. He had the strongest affinity and sense of earth elements, and he was known as an earth element magic genius.
Compared with ordinary trainers, he sensed more things and was more surprised – This is clearly the fluctuation of earth elements, [Gravity]? [Ground Sink]? [Swamp]? No… Even though it is earth element power, it is not any form of earth element magic that I understand.
The power produced by the combination and change of the earth element was so powerful that Bedell was shivering and felt strange… Is it the strongest element origin power mentioned by the old dean and teacher Carlisle of Starlight College?
The origin of elements was no longer restricted to any form of magic, and it could invoke the purest and most powerful element power with just a few gestures. However, this state was almost unattainable even for a super powerhouse; only the legendary Elemental King could have it.
Bedell had no doubt that if this magic was an attack like [Death Flower], then the hobbit army, including the hobbit’s Saint powerhouse, would all be killed in an instant.
No wonder the third prince is so calm. It turns out that this seemingly weak and powerless veiled beauty actually has such terrifying strength!
The shocking thing was yet to come. Zola didn’t even look at the hobbits, but she just spread her right hand at the sunlike hobbits and the roaring giant dragon in the distant sky.
Everyone felt dazzled, and the battlefield in the distance had already magnified in the blink of an eye, appearing in the sky. They were all startled, but they soon discovered that the surrounding space seemed to be wrapped by something, so the impact of the battle between the 2 super powerhouses did not actually leak out.
The 2 who were engrossed in the fierce battle did not notice this abnormality. Suddenly, the silver bearded hobbit powerhouse shuddered, feeling a bone-piercing cold from the burning warhammer in his hand. When he subconsciously glanced at the warhammer in his hand, he found that the warhammer was actually frozen into ice together with the raging flame. It looked like a solidified red torch from a distance.
The hobbit was utterly shocked. This ‘Flickering Fire’ warhammer is a powerful rune weapon, equivalent to a quasi-artifact level. It is infused with my strongest kingdom power, and it is actually frozen!
Water elementals and fire elements are mutually restraining and opposing elements. It may not be difficult to extinguish the fire, but freezing the fire is 10 times more difficult than freezing other elements. Moreover, it is an instant suppressive freezing!
This cold had spread in an instant, and the fiery kingdom power began to cool down rapidly. Even his soul seemed to be freezing slightly. The silver bearded hobbit was a battle-hardened man. He immediately gave up the Flickering Fire warhammer decisively.
On the opposite side, Paglio was overjoyed when he sensed that the most threatening warhammer suddenly lost its power. He was about to knock down the opponent with one blow, but his body suddenly twisted strangely. He had inexplicably left the battlefield and returned to the top of the carriage.
“Zola!” The familiar space transfer power made the poison dragon shout out – I was fighting happily, then I was actually ‘teleported back’ at the critical moment when I was about to take down the enemy!
“What?” Ms. Fairy Dragon glanced at Paglio as if she didn’t hear it clearly. When Master Poison Dragon looked at the gaze, he suddenly felt dejected.
Alright, I am a gentleman. A good dragon does not suffer immediate losses.
The hobbit also noticed the disappearance of his opponent. He set his eyes on the mysterious woman wearing glasses and a veil, roaring and shifting toward this side: This woman must have activated a shameless sneak attack trick. As long as she is defeated, the Flickering Fire can be restored to its original state!
However, the hobbit shifted several times in a row, but he only flashed on the spot, unable to escape from the space at all. In the midst of shock, Zola’s upturned palm slowly turned down. The hobbit suddenly felt dizzy, and the whole world spun around. Before he could stabilize his body, the sky seemed to collapse and he fell involuntarily.
“Boom!” The huge body of the silver bearded hobbit fell to the ground, leaving a huge pothole full of cracks on the ground. The hobbit turned over and was about to jump up, but the intangible pressure above was as heavy as a mountain. He actually couldn’t even stand up.
When the silver bearded hobbit let out a loud roar, the runes on the armor lit up with strong rays of light. His full strength burst out. Finally, he could barely stand up.
A few strands of purple hair on Zola’s forehead fluttered slightly, and she moved her fingers downward.
The silver bearded hobbit felt that the pressure suddenly increased several times. His body trembled, and his knees could no longer support him. He fell to the ground again with a ‘bang’.
The enlarged body began to shrink to its original shape, and even the black armor on his body began to twist and deform. The shining runes distinguished one by one, showing the horror of the pressure. The hobbit struggled unwillingly, and he could only half support his body. He could no longer stand up.
This scene made the hobbits almost petrified. The super powerhouse Hodheck, who had been regarded as the strongest amongst the hobbits, was so easily defeated!
Master Poison Dragon couldn’t help but feel a little dejected while gloating at the misfortune. Comparing among dragons will only make me frustrated. The madwoman’s strength is more advanced now. If this goes on, it’s only a matter of time before she breaks through to Demi-God – I absorbed the law fragments given by the human and worked hard to just reach the intermediate stage of Kingdom level. I’m afraid it’s hopeless to make a comeback in front of this madwoman in this life, let alone that monstrous human.
The humans and knights around the carriage looked at Zola with extreme awe. It turns out that this is the most powerful guardian beside His Highness Arthur!
“Okay, Zola.” Chen Rui’s voice sounded. If it went on like this, perhaps the silver bearded hobbit would be severely injured. The forest hobbit Bernd was his friend, and he had some friendship with the mountain hobbit back then. The purpose of asking Zola to take action to suppress the scene was to unravel the misunderstanding, not to deepen the misunderstanding.
Ms. Fairy Dragon put down her hand according to the words. The silver bearded hobbit only felt the pressure relieved, and he fell to the ground, panting heavily. The position of the hobbit army gradually rose. They had returned to the flat ground from the sunk soil. The previous heavy feeling also disappeared.
The hobbits finally know the strength of the enemy now. They all clenched their weapons, but no one escaped.
“The heroes of the hobbit, if my guardian wants to kill you, it will be easy.” Chen Rui’s amplified voice sounded in time, “However, I will not kill my friends like this, even if I’m misunderstood by my friends. I just want to get to the Thick Soil Castle as soon as possible and see what’s wrong with my hobbit friends and help them as much as possible.”
The silver bearded hobbit got up and stared at Chen Rui from a distance for a while, “What’s your name? Human.”
“Arthur. Roland. The third prince of the Dragon Bright Empire.”
The hobbits looked at each other, almost invariably showing expressions of surprise. The silver bearded Hodheck blurted out, “Mechanic grand master!”
For the hobbit who regarded forging skills as life, no prince could match the weight of these 3 words.
Weapons were dropped one after another.
A few hours later.
The Dragon Scale Legion elite squad arrived with the hobbits at the Thick Soil Castle in Black Rock Mountain.
Along the way, Chen Rui learned from Hodheck that a year or so after he left the Thick Soil Castle last time, the hobbit’s power had undergone major changes.
The hobbit was divided into 3 types: the mountain hobbit, the cave hobbit, and the forest hobbit according to their living habits. They live in the Thick Soil Castle in the Black Rock Mountain, the Golden Bright Underground Palace in the Red Rock Mountain Range, and the Stone Fist Village respectively.
The 3 types of the hobbit came from the same source, and each had its own strengths. The mountain hobbit was best at forging skills; the cave hobbit was proficient in mining and refining of minerals; the forest hobbit was closely related to elf and specialized in rune craftsmanship.
At that time, there was a big earthquake in the Red Rock Mountain Range, which caused the cave hobbit’s residence, the Golden Bright Underground Palace, to collapse, leading to heavy casualties. At the invitation of the Hobbit King Ovge on the hill, the Cave Hobbit King Yinke led the cave hobbits to leave the Red Rock Mountain Range, migrating to Black Rock Mountain, so the 2 forces of the hobbits merged into 1.
After the merging, the hobbits were stronger. With the addition of the cave hobbit, the rich mineral resources of the Black Rock Mountain had been further developed. However, due to the increase in the number of people, the demand for various materials, especially food and wine, had greatly increased. This allowed the hobbits to relax restrictions on dealing with humans.
Just a few days ago, a group of humans came to the Thick Soil Castle and offered to exchange food and wheat wine for equipment. They also paid half of the food and wine water as a deposit beforehand. This kind of big money was rare in the hobbit’s transactions with humans. The hobbits got a large amount of much-needed food and wine. Today was the delivery day, and the other party brought the remaining half of the food and wine as promised. The hobbits were convinced and held a banquet with grand etiquette.
However, at the last moment of picking up the goods, those people suddenly attacked without warning. They killed the hobbit elders and the hobbit warriors who accompanied them and stole a large amount of equipment. At the same time, a large number of hobbits were found to be poisoned, including the Hobbit King Ovge and Inke. It turned out that a batch of highly poisoned wine was mixed up in the remaining part of the food and wine delivered today.
This incident alarmed the 2 super powerhouses of the hobbit family. Sterklin stayed behind the Thick Soil Castle to protect and try to cure the poisoned hobbits. Meanwhile, Hodheck led the large shield warriors and the knight to hunt down the enemy. They followed the trail all the way to this place and mistakened Chen Rui and the others as murderers, which led to a battle.
Chen Rui had fully understood the whole story. The reason why those assassins poisoned the hobbit was not because of coveting any equipment. According to Zola, the assassins who had ambushed the carriage earlier escaped with a one-time [Teleportation Array]. It seemed that the 2 groups had the same purpose, which was to lead the hobbit here and reap the benefits while they were fighting.
This showed that the assassins had mastered the protective power around him a long time ago. This kind of ‘power’ was by no means the Proyo group, but the ‘guardian of the ancient alchemy civilization’. The most obvious was Paglio who made a move at the conference hall of the palace.
The hobbit super powerhouse was supposed to be aimed at Paglio, but the enemy didn’t expect that Chen Rui had a more powerful ‘guardian’ like Zola by his side. As a result, he calmed the situation and easily smashed the opponent’s conspiracy.
On the other hand, if it weren’t for Zola’s super strength, perhaps Chen Rui and the others had already become the scapegoat under the hobbit’s axe, then the cause of ‘Arthur”s death would be pushed to the hobbits.
This is a careful plan, the ambushers are no ordinary assassins, so who is the manipulator behind the scenes? Elder brother? Younger brother? The Black Death Follower? Or… someone else?
