After a long time.
It wasn’t until sleepiness washed over him that Gale returned to the house to sleep.
Soon after, he fell asleep.
In his dreams…
Gale rode on a dragon and traversed above the nine heavens.
Everywhere they passed, people would kneel and worship them.
Under the support of the many soldiers and citizens surrounding him, he stepped onto the peak of the Endless Land!
He became the sole ruler of this Endless Land!
Ruling over its hundreds of millions of denizens!
Life and death could be decided with a single thought of his!
However, the moment he stepped onto the peak, a sudden change occurred.
A demonic creature appeared in the originally clear sky!
The body of the demonic creature was so huge that one could not see where its head was!
With a raise of its hand, it absorbed all the battle units into its body!
No one could resist the powerful suction force and could only be reduced to lambs waiting to be slaughtered!
Finally, the demon turned its gaze to Gale.
It waved its bloody hand, gripping Gale tightly within.
Just as it was about to swallow him….
He woke up.
“I’m glad it was just a dream.”
Gale sat up and breathed greedily.
The ‘dramatic’ scene in his mind was like a dog skin plaster that could not be removed.
(Note: Dog skin plaster refers to a sort of herbal ointment or paste that is applied onto the skin to create a plaster. It’s extremely sticky and difficult to remove once applied)
His expression became one of utter defeat.
Everything that happened in the dream was very real!
The moment he was grabbed by the demon, Gale literally felt the air around him freeze, unable to breathe!
After a while…
Gale finally broke away from the scene in his dream.
He was drenched in sweat.
Just like a young man who had just been saved from drowning.
Gale furrowed his brows heavily.
He did not understand why he would suddenly have such a dream.
Could it be a prophecy about the future?
Gale shook his head and dismissed the thought. He would just treat this as a dream for now.
However, this sort of realistic dream had also awoken in him a desire to improve his strength as fast as possible!
Gale lay on the bed and stared at the blood moon through the window, unable to fall asleep for a long time.
The night passed uneventfully.
The sun rose.
Gale did not manage to rest last night, as he kept recalling the scenes in his dream.
This was a warning for him as well.
He desperately wanted to increase his strength at the moment.
Luckily, with the improvements he had in his strength, he did not feel tired even after staying awake for almost the entire night.
As Gale walked out of the castle, Elena and Cicely were already waiting in the courtyard.
They bowed to Gale who was walking towards them.
Gale nodded in acknowledgment.
He walked over to the military building.
The first thing to do in the early morning was of course to summon more battle units!
This was also an important part of every day!
Today was different from usual. Gale was prepared to try something exciting.
He would not specify which race he wished to draw. Everything would be random!
He might be able to draw a strong battle unit, or he might draw a weak battle unit.
However, no matter how weak the soldiers were, they would be a unique unit!
They all had unlimited potential!
With this thought in mind, the military building began their selection.
After a long time, the clear pond turned pitch-black.
Even the pond water transformed into boiling blood!
There was a sinister smell everywhere.
At this moment, a blood-red light shot out from the ‘blood pool’.
Gale covered his eyes, unable to look at the light.
By the time he lowered his hand, the blood-red light had already disappeared.
In front of him was a creature with a pair of dark red horns.
Behind it was a pair of dark black wings, allowing it to float in front of Gale.
Gale stared at the creature in front of himr, stunned.
This was almost exactly the same as the demons he saw on television back in his world!
However, the evil aura emitted by the creature in front of him was even stronger, as if it had just crawled out from hell.
Gale willed it and opened the information panel of the creature before him.
[Abyssal Demon (Unnamed)]
[Current Growth Stage: Infant]
[Strength: Tier 5 (Killing the enemy to obtain Energy for upgrading)]
[Potential: God Tier possible at Perfect Form]
[Loyalty: 100 (Absolute Loyalty)]
[Note: Loyalty Meter has been locked. This type of battle unit’s Loyalty Meter will never drop.]
Gale shouted in his heart the moment he saw the virtual panel.
Unexpectedly, a random summon resulted in a Tier 5 demon appearing!
It had to be known that the combat power of demons was not inferior to the creatures of other supreme races at all!
Moreover, it was a Tier 5 demon battle unit with a unique attribute!
Light and evil were supposed to balance each other.
Therefore, there was no difference in their abilities!
After regaining his senses, Gale looked at the ‘Demon’ battle unit in front of him.
For some reason, he felt like he had seen her somewhere before.
“You’ll be called Novia from now on.”
He had gotten used to naming new battle units.
“Novia greets the master.”
Novia’s body changed as she spoke.
The dark wings gradually disappeared, and replacing its form was a girl with small dark-red horns.
Even the evil aura around her disappeared.
Novia wore a small black and red dress. Without the telltale horns on her head, people would mistake her for their neighbor’s kids if they saw her in the streets!
Perhaps because of her own species, the demon quickly became familiar with the other two battle units.
They looked like old friends that hadn’t seen each other in years.
“Today, all of you will strive to kill another Tier 5 monster!”
Gale briefly explained the day’s task that he had for them.
His goal today was very simple.
It was to upgrade the military building to Level 2.
With Cicely having reached Tier 5, as well as the addition of Novia, they would not need to fear any Tier 5 monster!
They could now let loose, and if they found any, kill!
Soon, Elena would also step into the ranks of Tier 5s.
The future was promising!
“Novia belongs to the demon family and will not be affected by the Blood Moon. The castle’s strength has been greatly improved!”
Gale murmured as he watched the three battle units leave.
The soldiers were engrossed in their work while Gale enjoyed the delicious food of the day.
As usual, they were still prepared by Cicely.
He had to admit that Cicely’s cooking was getting better and better.
“Tier 5 bear meat is indeed good stuff.”
After eating the whole piece of meat, Gail felt the energy in his body rise.
Although there was no specific notification, he could still feel it.
If it weren’t for the fact that he was afraid of getting sick of eating bear meat, Gail would have eaten all the bear meat on the first day!
Not long after the battle units left, notifications started ringing in Gale’s mind.
Their hunting speed was much faster than yesterday’s.
The reasoning behind was simple.
Now that Novia had joined the team, the team’s overall strength had increased, and the hunting speed of the monsters had naturally increased.
Naturally, it was because the sphere of influence of the castle had increased, so more monsters appeared.
Gale could allow his battle units hunt monsters outside the sphere of influence, but he did not do so.
While more resources could be obtained, the probability of encountering a crisis would also increase.
Besides, the monsters in the sphere of influence were enough to kill for a while. There was no need for his units to go out and take risks.
