Zhan Long - Chapter 1373
I came to the wall. As expected, 100+ giants moved over slowly. In the middle was one with a white staff. The giant was 6 meters tall and different from the other combat giants, this one had a white robe. He looked very noble. He was old and had a white beard.
“Prepare to fire!” Han Yuan said.
“Wait, let’s ask them first,” I said.
Jing Yin nodded, “En, they are not here to attack or they would have sent more people.”
Xiao Lie ordered, “Don’t attack, let them get close. Archers prepare to shoot them!”
This bunch got close slowly and the leading soldier held a hammer. He said, “Who has the highest rank, come out, my sir has something to say!”
I jumped up and stood in the sky. Butterfly shone and I said, “I am Tian Ling Empire’s Xiao Yao King, the highest commander of this army. What do you have to say?”
That white beard old man smiled, “This time we sent troops before talking, please forgive our Aotian Race.”
I looked into the distance at the corpses. We didn’t even have time to clean up the corpses.
“You killed so many of us and want us to forgive you?”
I laughed, “Your Aotian Race is indeed really arrogant…”
The old man smiled, “I don’t know if your highness is willing to admit it. At least I think that you entered our territory first right? If you didn’t pass through the barrier, you wouldn’t have been surrounded. You entered our homeland so we attacked.”
Lin Qiong frowned, “Old fellow, what do you want? If you want to attack then come, our empire has never been afraid of dying. Bring it on!”
He laughed, “I am called Kong Fang, I am one of the advisors for the emperor. South of this, we have a million soldiers. I believe you have seen our combat strength. Could we move north and rule the continent?”
My heart felt cold. 1 million of so many terrifying soldiers? Then we didn’t have much hope. If these 1 million attacked together, Tian Ling City might not be able to hold on. This Ghost City’s defence was strong and had 500 thousand of Tian Ling City’s most elite but we might not be able to block 100 thousand Aotian Race soldiers. If they had a million…!
Han Yuan held his blade, “Old thing, I don’t care if you are Kong Fang or Kong Yuan, wash your neck and wait for my blade!”
Yan Zhao Warrior frowned, “Xiao Yao, the NPC generals are all problematic. If they continue, things will develop towards the bad side.”
Uncle still felt like there was a way for peace. Since they attacked us, they had a goal. If we satisfied that, we might be able to survive.
I coughed and stared at them to tell them to shut up. Then I bowed, “Sir Kong Fang, we came in by accident, we definitely didn’t mean to be disrespectful. Please show mercy. If you could give a path for us to retreat, we will head back to Tian Ling Empire. If you have any requests, we will try to fulfill it.”
“Your Highness knows how to speak.”
Kong Fang smiled, “But if you read the history books, you will know. Aotian Race was an old race from tens of thousands of years ago, the world thought that we were wiped out. In truth, we just avoided the battle of the gods and after tens of thousands of years, we finally had a million population. After the gods opened up the land, this place belonged to us but Nuwa created the humans that took over. They chased us and tried to kill us… Now that we have raised our flags once more, we want to find our pride and also our land.”
My gaze turned cold, “Sir Kong Fang what does your race want?”
Kong Fang’s gaze turned greedy and violent, “Do you not understand? Aotian wants this world, we want to rule everything!”
“Is there no room for discussion?” I said coldly.
Kong Fang smiled, “Yes… Our emperor is kind so why would we show no mercy? If you are willing, I am willing to help his majesty decide. I will use the god hammer to open the breach and let you head back to tell your emperor to bring his people out of the seven main cities and live in Ice Spine Mountain. Leave all the land to us, that would be enough.”
I laughed, “Just me alone? What about the army behind me?”
“Oh, they are pigs with spikes!” Kong Fang laughed, “These are just war machines for Tian Ling Empire, there is no reason for them to live. Ghost City is their grave, none of them an leave.”
I laughed coldly, “So you are letting me head back to bring back news of the humans getting wiped?”
“Your Highness is so smart.”
Kong Fang became really arrogant. He raised his staff and laughed, “Who can stop Aotian Race? If you are smart you can live. If not you can prepare to be dead souls with your emperor under the hooves of our race!”
“Is that so?”
My gaze became vicious and I pulled out Chunjun Sword, “Wan Er, Dong Cheng, Li Mu, Q-Sword, Jian Feng Han, do you think we should let him live?”
Wan Er held her Dragontooth Blade and smiled, “Up to you hubby…”
Dong Cheng Yue’s staff shone with magical light, “I also listen… Er, to Wan Er’s husband…”
Q-Sword pulled out his sword, “Of course not, attack!”
In the next moment, light shot down from the walls. I held my sword and a shockwave spread out. I pushed aside the Aotian Race warriors and slashed toward Kong Fang.
“Xiao Yao King, what do you want?” Kong Fang was shocked.
While speaking, the sword stabbed into his chest. He was an official so his defence and health were average. He lost 25% health just like that, too easy!
Han Yuan laughed, “Fire your arrows, kill them!”
All sorts of attack and spells flew out. A thousand Furnace God Cavalries used Bladespin and it was really majestic and dazzling.
Kong Fang wasn’t able to say another word before Q-Sword and Jian Feng Han sliced off his head. This head was huge. Q-Sword held his head up from the ear and shouted, “Damn Aotian Race, we won’t bow down!”
Arrows fired and over half of the 100+ they brought were killed. The rest were low health and they wanted to leave but the God Grade players either killed them or they were hit by the Dragon Crystal Cannons. None of them survived.
Diplomacy failed, the war was going to begin!
“Dong dong dong…”
War drums shook the sky as many giant figures appeared. Not only were there walking Aotian Race soldiers, but there were also some riding giant beasts. This was the first time we saw their cavalries. The mounts were like giant bears but they had horns and also looked like rhinos. If they attacked the walls it wouldn’t be good.
I looked towards Han Yuan and said, “When their cavalries get close, every 10 God Dragon Cannons and 50 Dragon Crystal Cannons aim at one. Kill them. We can’t let them get close to the walls. Do you understand?”
Han Yuan smiled, “Don’t worry your highness!”
He was happy. Seemed like he was satisfied with my diplomacy.
Aotian Race wanted this world. If we wanted peace, we would be cursed at. Moreover, we were players and asking NPCs for peace was a huge humiliation. We couldn’t do it and definitely wouldn’t do it.
The ground shook. After the meeting failed, the huge group of Aotian Race warriors charged. There were around 100 thousand of them. This was a crucial wave. If we didn’t force them back, we would die here.
“Prepare to fight!”
I pulled out my swords and my arm actually shook. Was it fear or emotions? It was late game already and I could actually feel excited. I should really thank this race.
The giant’s defence and momentum were too strong so we couldn’t let them charge. We had to send troops out to block. This was left to Autumn Harvest Army. Drunken Spear led 100 thousand people down, 20 meters from the wall. They held their shields and waited for the enemy.
Dragon Crystal Cannons and God Dragon Cannons started to fire. Mushroom clouds exploded to rip the bodies of the Aotian Race warriors. They were scorched but that didn’t stop their attacks. In the smoke, many Aotian Race cavalries charged over.
