God and Devil World - Chapter 721-730
Chapter 721: Coercion!
After 2 days, the entire area in front of the 20th Fort was littered with the corpses of the foreign races. Many of these soldiers had not even matured and were already thrown into battle, dying miserably in front of the fort.
For the sake of this war, the dozens of Dino-Kingdoms had activated their vassal forces, throwing them all into the fight. Just the numbers that had reached the battlefield alone already reached more than 5 million.
Right now, along the way towards the 20th Fort, there were piles and heaps of corpses and dismembered limbs.
300 Type 4 Mutant Beasts, a vast number of Pterosaurs, Velociraptors, as well other Mutant Beasts were devouring these corpses.
These vassal forces were the best mobile rations, after their deaths, not only would consumption go down, their blood could be collected to become Blood Honey, while their corpses could become food for the other Mutant Beatts behind them.
When the members of the vassal forces saw such a cruel scene, their faces were pale, yet they did not dare to say anything. Their strength was too weak compared to the Tyranno-Kingdom. Furthermore, these vassal forces did not have the technology nor the Forts as defenses. If they betrayed the Tyranno-Kingdom, there was only death for them. A single Type 6 Tyranno-King was enough to wipe out an entire race.
Far away from the Fort, Agu Ya stared at the Black Lizard-warrior corpses from the laser beams, no change in expression.
Beside him, the rest of the Black Lizard-Warriors were pale, their eyes filled with pain. They were an elite troop, and yet, barely after a day, they had already lost 20,000 of their people. The humans, on the other hand, suffered little casualties. However, Agu Ya did not give the command to retreat, and the Black Lizard-Warriors did not dare say anything.
Agu Ya eyed the 20th Fort, his eyes flashing with heat, “We have lost another 400,000 soldiers in these 2 days. We still have 1.6 million troops. This assault can continue for 8 days. By then, the reinforcements will arrive. This last stand of the humans will definitely fall this time!”
The Xue Luo 20 Forts had withstood the attacks of the Tyranno-Kingdom for years, if it wasn’t for them, with the strength of the kingdom, all the humans in Cloud Region would have been slaughtered.
All of a sudden, a black shadow shot through the skies like a shooting star, landing in the Dino-Army camp. A powerful aura gushed out, enveloping the entire area.
Under the pressure of that terrifying aura, everyone present within the camp trembled.
“It’s His Majesty, Emperor Ba Long!”
Agu Ya was shocked, and immediately brought all his Mid-Grade Dino-Generals as well as the Type 5 experts to the center of the camp.
“We greet Your Majesty, Emperor Ba Long!”
Agu Ya got down on one knee, declaring with reverence.
“We greet Your Majesty, Emperor Ba Long”
The rest of the subjects also got down on their knees, enveloped by that overwhelming pressure. They did not dare to even look up as they welcomed him with fear and respect.
Emperor Ba Long ordered coldly, “Get up. Agu Ya. I want you to disregard everything and take down that 20th Fort within 7 days.”
Agu Ya was shocked as he exclaimed, “Your Majesty, why the hurry? With our strength, we will just need a month at most. We will be able to take down the Xue Luo Fort. We will not suffer so many casualties as well! If we have to throw all we have within the 7 days, we will lose many of our elites.”
The Dino-warriors were making use of the vassals as cannon fodder as well as a means to chip away at the defenses of the humans. Like this, they would not lose their own elites. If they had to take down the last fort within the next 7 days, he would have to deploy the elites of the Dino-Warriors. They would be able to take down the Fort but at a high cost.
“Are you questioning my order?”
Following that icy tone, a powerful killing intent erupted and enveloped Agu Ya, while Emperor Ba Long’s gaze fell upon Agu Ya like swords.
Agu Ya immediately replied with his back in cold sweat when he sensed that killing intent, “No! Your subject does not dare!”
A Type 7 Dino-Emperor was very different from a Type 6 Dino-King. Among the Dino-warriors, the Type 7 Dino-Emperor was a god-like existence. If Emperor Ba Long gave the order to kill Agu Ya on the spot, no one would stand up for him.
Emperor Ba Long declared coldly, “Good! You shall lead the charge and atone for your sins! If you can bring the person with the gold imprint in front of me, I will help you become a Type 7 Divine Warrior. After hundreds of years, you will become like us!”
The cold sweat behind Agu Ya finally stopped, as he gritted his teeth to reply, “Yes! Your Majesty!”
Agu Ya was extremely clear, that if he failed to deliver within 7 days, all that awaited him was death.
After leaving the central camp, Agu Ya turned to the leaders of the vassal forces, speaking coldly, “You heard it. Within 7 days, if we don’t take down the Xue Luo Fort, and you guys are still alive, then your race will all be annihilated.”
One of the Tiger-Warriors replied solemnly, “Understood! We will definitely give it our all!”
The rest of the leaders also revealed expressions of desperation. For the sake of their own races, they had to risk it all.
Under the coercion of Emperor Ba Long, the style of battle changed radically, becoming more intense. Foreign warriors were now surging forwards without a care for their own lives. They were no long as dispersed as before, instead, charging at the Fort in dense numbers.
The energy cannons within the Xue Luo Fort fired out without stopping. A number of energy bombs landed on the foreign races, blasting large zones of them into oblivion.
Those that managed to make it past the explosions were then met with laser beams, turning them into sieves.
Even so, the soldiers did not relent, continuing to surge forwards in droves like unending ants.
In the skies, the aerial soldiers had increased by 10 times, with over thousands of airborne soldiers now assaulting the fort.
The human soldiers stationed with the Mech-Fighters were pierced by the incoming arrows, as they fell in pools of their own blood.
The Mech-Fighters started to break apart in explosions, or their lines and cables were destroyed, stopping all movement.
Inside Xue Luo Fort, a number of anti-air laser cannons were fired out, blasting apart the Winged Races under the command of Bai Yi.
At that moment when all these were going on, all the Type 4 and Type 5 experts that had been biding their time suddenly attacked.
One particular Type 5 Blue Lizard Leader’s body darted forwards. With a wave of his hand, countless wind blades burst out from a distance of 5 km, slicing at the Fort.
Due to those wind blades, a number of self-defense mechanisms were wrecked.
One 6m-tall Type 5 Bear-Warrior roared out in fury, raising a huge boulder of hundreds of tonnes. He swung it madly, sending it soaring towards the fort like a shooting star.
Faced with that attack, a number of guided energy missiles shot out to slam into the boulder, blasting it apart.
One Type 5 Eagle-Warrior who had sharp eyes soared into the skies. He raised his bow and fixed his aim upon the various fire points atop the city wall, and began firing nonstop.
Within one bunker, there were 2 human soldiers stationed inside, controlling an Electromagnetic Cannon to fire at the foreign races below.
Suddenly, an arrow burst down into the bunker, directly piercing the cannon. At the next moment, 2 other arrows shot right into the skulls of those 2 human soldiers, blood splattering everywhere.
All the Type 5 experts had been mobilized since they had been conserving their strength, they would able to burst forth with ferocious intensity. However, they were now forced to slaughter these humans within a time period, thus, they did not hold back and went all out.
Other than those Type 5 experts, a number of Type 3 Diplodocuses were also flinging stones with vigor towards the Fort, destroying the automatic defenses.
“What’s going on?” On top of the Fort, Yue Zhong looked out at the mad rush of the foreign races and he frowned.
Although the frenzied charge of the foreign races had sped up their deaths, the defenses of the last Xue Luo Fort was also being chipped away. At the same time, due to the Type 5 experts making a move, the casualties of the human soldiers were rising.
The intense and bloody battle went on for an entire hour. Under the relentless assault of the Type 5 experts from the foreign races, over 300 human soldiers had died.
When Yue Zhong heard the report of the casualty rates, a dark look came over his face, “No, we can’t go on like this.”
Chapter 722: The Terror of a High-Grade Dino-General!
Yue Zhong gave an order to Bai Yi, “Bai Yi, get rid of those Type 5 Enhancers!”
If they did not take care of the Type 5 experts, the entire troop in the Fort would be slowly killed, and the 180,000-strong army would not last a few days.
Bai Yi’s eyes turned to data and numbers, as she made some calculations, “Yes! Choosing the most threatening targets automatically.”
All of a sudden, multiple laser beams shot out from the Fort, forming a dense rain that swept into the distance.
The Type 5 Bear-Warrior that could toss the boulder of hundreds of tonnes quickly dashed away, retreating with explosive speed. However, in the end, he did not manage to outrun the laser beams.
At the point of contact, the Type 5 Bear-Warrior bellowed in rage, as a powerful Radiance of Light appeared, blocking in front of him.
The lasers that could pierce through armored vehicles like they were nothing slammed into Radiance of Light, causing ripples.
However, after blocking a few hundred beams, the Radiance of Light collapsed. The multiple beams tore into the skin of the Type 5 Bear-Warrior, penetrating his body, leaving it full of bloody holes.
After dealing with the Type 5 Bear-Warrior, the cluster of Prism Laser Cannons behind the fort wall adjusted their aims under Bai Yi’s control. They then began to lock onto the Type 5 Green Lizard-Warrior that could control Wind Blades.
A large group of laser beams fired out, directly tearing through the Type 5 Lizard-Warrior, as he slumped to the ground lifelessly.
The Prism Laser Cannons then continued to take out the various Type 5 experts. However, the airborne enemy troops also attacked the Prism Laser Cannons, taking them out one by one.
These Prism Laser Cannons were specifically used to deal with the Type 5 and Type 6 Warriors, it was the reason those Type 5 experts did not dare be unbridled.
The Type 5 experts of the vassal forces were being killed by the Prism Laser Cannons consistently, while the airborne races were met with the electromagnetic cannons.
In the midst of all that, the Prism Laser Cannons were being damaged by the airborne vassal forces, their efficiency being cut down constantly.
If the Prism Laser Cannons were able to unleash their firepower without interruption, they would be able to kill a Type 5 expert in a single hit. If they were just firing blindly it would not be as effective.
The cruel battle continued for a long while, without any pause. The enemy forces continued to surge forward to the Fort, before being reduced to corpses.
Countless enemy foreign soldiers were killed in the relentless firepower. Their corpses began to pile up, forming mounds, allowing the soldiers behind to ascend them to continue the attack on the fort.
In order to deal with those mounds that were quickly turning into some grotesque pathway to the top of the fort, the fort would fire out napalms from time to time. The blaze would consume the dead soldiers, reducing them to ash.
About 500m away from the fort, there could be multiple piles of charred bones, while black smoke rose everywhere, emitting a putrid stench.
The area in front of the fort was like a slaughterhouse, with the frenzied and ferocious foreign races being killed.
The battle waged on for an entire day, even in the dark of the night, the foreign races continued to charge forwards without rest, assaulting the fort without any care for their own lives.
Flares were shot into the sky, illuminating the night sky, and countless lasers instantly blast out at the enemy forces, eradicating another wave.
This was the pattern that lasted for an entire 3 days and 3 nights, and the total number of dead foreign soldiers outside the fort numbered over a million.
However, the assault of the foreign races was truly intense, forcing the energy cannons within the Fort to fire almost without stop. Under that sort of output, the cannons began to fail.
Those Prism Laser Cannons that could instantly wipe out a Type 5 Divine Warrior were also failing, with ⅔ of them totally destroyed. Within the Fort, the casualty rate of the human soldiers had reached 5,000. They had also lost 80,000 of their Mech Fighters.
Early the next morning, a number of soldiers were walking out of their covers with faces of exhaustion, while new soldiers took over them.
In a battle of life-and-death, it was easy to wear a person out. Even the most elite of soldiers would not be able to battle constantly without rest. In fact, most of them were lacking any semblance to their usual selves. Not only were they physically fatigued, they were mentally drained.
“They’re here! The Dino-Warriors are attacking!!”
Suddenly, there were shouts of alarm.
Atop the city wall, Yue Zhong eyed the Tyranno-Warriors charging towards the Fort at the speed of sound, his brows furrowing, “The Dino-Warriors! Are they finally sending out their elites?”
This time, among the 20,000 Lizard-Warriors, there were 4,000 Tyranno-Warriors mixed in.
The 4,000 Tyranno-Warriors were charging forward with all their might, their speed reaching the sound barrier. It was like a thousand Fighter Jets shooting for the Fort.
Facing these Tyranno-Warriors with terrifying speed, the soldiers within the Xue Luo Fort began to attack crazily.
Although there would be some Tyranno-Warriors that got killed by the barrage of laser and electromagnetic beams, over thousands of them managed to get past and got close to the wall.
Yue Zhong dashed forward, aiming at the Tyranno-Warriors with his Electromagnetic Cannons. His shots caused many of the Type 4 Tyranno-Warriors to be instantly killed by a blast to their heads.
2,000 Xue Luo Guards with their Type 3 Battle Suits came up to the wall as well, firing their weapons down at the Tyranno-Warriors. Many of the intact self-defense weapons adjusted their aim towards the Tyranno-Warriors.
Buffeted by the beams, many Tyranno-Warriors were shot full of holes.
However, the combat ability of these Tyranno-Warriors was superior to most other Type 4 experts. With a flash of their bodies, they quickly scaled up the fort as agile as the Lizard-Warriors. They came up to the automated defenses and crushed them with their bare hands.
These Tyranno-Warriors were stronger than most other foreign races. As they leaped up the fort, most of the automated defense systems stood no chance.
40 Low-Grade Dino-Generals and 10 Mid-Grade Dino-Generals suddenly leaped out from the midst of the Tyranno-Warriors, breaching into the Xue Luo Fort.
These Tyranno-Generals were incredibly vicious, the moment one of them landed among the Xue Luo Guards, he charged right into their mist, his right fist slamming into their heads.
Peng! Peng! Peng!
With loud sounds of bone cracking, the heads of those Xue Luo Guards burst apart like watermelons.
The Mid-Grade Tyranno-Generals cut through the troops in all directions, everywhere their blade fell, the heads of countless Xue Luo Guards would roll.
“Go to hell! Beast!!”
Following roars of rage, 10 Type 4 Iron-Blood Warriors charged towards one Mid-Grade Tyranno-General with bloodshot eyes.
The eyes of the Mid-Grade Tyranno-General flashed with a fierce glint. His body disappeared, and he reappeared outside of the encirclement. At the next moment, the heads of the 10 Type 4 Iron-Blood Warriors split apart in showers of blood, while he did not even suffer the slightest bit of injury.
Facing these terrifying Tyranno-Generals, more Prism Laser Cannons rose out from the Fort, firing at the Tyranno-Generals with no mercy.
As the laser beams blasted out, a number of Xue Luo Guard elites that were engaged with the Tyranno-General were all killed together.
It was only under such shots that did not distinguish friend or foe that could swiftly take out a Type 5 Tyranno-General.
Within the barrage of laser beams, a 3m-tall figure suddenly glowed with a dark energy shield. He turned into a flash of light that burst through the beams, which caused ripples in his shield but not truly damaging him.
This particular figure was the Type 6 Tyranno-King Agu Ya, who had been forced to the edge. The black box in his hands was a prehistoric tech from the humans of the past, that allowed the user to be covered in a powerful energy shield, powered by a Type 6 Nucleus. It was with this treasure that the energy shield could withstand the laser beams.
In a breath’s time, Agu Ya had appeared among the Prism Laser Cannons. He pulled out a 4m-large bone ax, and began to unleash hell to the equipment.
With the loud sounds of destruction, many of the Prism Laser Cannons were destroyed by Agu Ya.
He did not seem to stop in his movements at all, continuing his rampage on the weapons around him. Just him alone was equivalent to the might of an entire army. One by one, the Prism Laser Cannons were reduced to rubble quickly.
The might of their attacks thus became weaker, less threatening to Agu Ya over time.
On the fort, countless automated weapons appeared, aiming for Agu Ya under the control of Bai Yi.
Chapter 723: Battling Agu Ya!
Agu Ya continued to wreak havoc amongst the Prism Laser Cannons. As he rampaged, from time to time, there would be laser and electromagnetic beams that blasted at him, only to be blocked by that layer of black energy shield.
On this Xue Luo Fort, Agu Ya was a one-man army, seemingly invincible. Numerous Mech-Fighters came up to block him under Bai Yi’s controls, only to be smashed into pieces.
Inside the command center, Zheng Yan He’s heart turned cold, “He is a Type 6 High-Grade Dino-General.”
Hearing this, everyone inside the center turned pale.
A Type 5 Dino-General was already an invincible existence in close combat, therefore, the appearance of a Type 6 Dino-General was equivalent to a calamity.
The 1st Fort had been breached by a Type 6 Dino-General before. At that time, the entire 1st Fort had been detonated, causing everyone within to die, only then were they able to eliminate that Type 6 Dino-General.
The final Xue Luo Fort was the only defense standing between the enemies and Cloud Region. Once it was destroyed, Cloud Region would be exposed.
Zheng Yan He turned to the 20 Iron-Blood Warriors behind him who were wearing Type 5 Battle Suits, and bowed deeply, “Now, I can only count on you guys, General Lin Lie. I’ll leave it to you guys.”
The general of the Iron-Blood Warriors, Lin Lie, replied solemnly, “Great General, the military’s task has always been to protect the country. This is what we should do.”
The other 19 Iron-Blood Warriors also had resolute gazes.
“Great General, Your Majesty Yue Zhong, we’re off!”
Lin Lie looked towards Yue Zhong and Zheng Yan He, bowing deeply, before pulling out the Scarlet Dragon Pill that could cause a human to employ their fullest potential, and swallowed it.
The rest of them also did the same.
Yue Zhong sighed.
The Scarlet Dragon Pill could channel the latent potential of humans, pushing their prowess to a Type 5 realm from the Type 4 realm. Their physique would also be enhanced several times. However, it was not long-lasting, furthermore, once used, the user will become a monster. After the effects have passed, the user would pass away as a freak.
The 20 Iron-Blood Warriors knew this outcome and yet chose to proceed with their sacrifice.
It was because of people like them, who were not afraid of sacrificing themselves for the sake of their fellow people, that the humans were able to survive these hundreds of years.
Compared to them, Wei Ming Qing was trash. In order to break through, he had chosen to sacrifice millions of his fellow people. He was nothing compared to these courageous warriors.
After consuming those pills, Lin Lie’ eyes flashed with hope as he bowed deeply, “General, Your Majesty, after our deaths. I hope that we can be cremated, and buried with our comrades. We would appreciate passing like our fellow humans.”
After swallowing the pills, when Lin Lie and the rest died, their bodies would still be in the grotesque state. This was the price for gaining a strength through a shortcut. They were not afraid of death but feared the lack of recognition from their comrades.
Yue Zhong nodded solemnly, “Of course!! As long as I’m alive, I will definitely set out to finish your wishes.”
Lin Lie looked at Yue Zhong with gratitude and quickly led his 19 comrades to the city wall, “Thank you, Your Majesty!”
By the time they reached the wall, the 20 of them had already turned into 3m-tall freaks, their veins bulging and fangs coming out of their mouths. Their bodies were covered in scales, and their nails had turned to claws.
Yue Zhong looked at them, his eyes flashing with a complicated gaze. He turned and disappeared from his location.
Lin Lie roared out in rage, pointing at Agu Ya in the distance. The Type 5 Battle Suit glowed, and all the power converged in his body, allowing him to take a half-step into the Type 6 realm.
“Kill! Kill! Kill!!”
The other 19 Iron-Blood Warriors roared out in response, their eyes flashing with bloodlust. They turned into beams of light that shot towards the Type 6 Agu Ya.
Just as Agu Ya destroyed the last Prism Laser Cannon, the black box in his hands also cracked and disintegrated. The precious Type 6 Nucleus was still intact.
Due to problems with the production, the black box could not fully absorb the power of the Type 6 Nucleus.
Every defensive treasure had their limitations. The black box in Agu Ya’s hands was no different, after absorbing so many hits, it finally crumbled.
“It reached its limits already? Forget it, I’ve already dealt with the Prism Laser Cannons. Now, let me take my time with this Fort.”
Agu Ya eyed the black box, before keeping the Type 6 Nucleus. He eyed the 20 human soldiers charging at him, revealing a savage smile, “Bunch of fools, here to seek death!”
With a tap of his foot, Agu Ya disappeared from his location. He then appeared right in front of one Iron-Blood Warrior. His fist came swinging out with the pressure of Mount Tai towards the soldier.
At that instant, the Iron-Blood Warrior who was wearing a Type 5 Battle Suit had a huge hole in his chest. His heart was crushed, in the end, this half-step Type 6 Iron-Blood Warrior was not a match for Agu Ya.
One other Iron-Blood Warrior roared with rage, his eyes so red that blood seemed ready to spurt out. A powerful psychic chain wrapped around Agu Ya, binding him.
Another Iron-Blood Warrior bellowed in rage, at that instant, both he and Agu Ya felt the gravity increase by a hundred times, forcing both of them down.
After chaining Agu Ya, 8 Iron-Blood Warriors charged forth with their Battle Spears. They thrust out madly, and that strike was enough to injure a Type 6 expert heavily.
This was a strike that they put their all into. An initial Type 6 expert would be killed instantly.
“Idiots!! You humans are too weak!!”
Agu Ya laughed maniacally before his arms flung out with force. The intangible psychic chains immediately broke apart, causing a backlash to the Iron-Blood Warrior, whose face turned pale and his eyes flashed with astonishment.
After shaking off the psychic chains, Agu Ya tapped his foot and charged right for the 8 Iron-Blood Warriors like a cannonball, his fists slamming into them.
In an instant, the bodies of the Iron-Blood Warriors burst apart violently.
Agu Ya was, after all, a peak Type 6 expert, even some Type 7 Divine Warriors who were not strong with close quarter combat might be torn apart by him. As for these human Iron-Blood Warriors, no matter how much enhancements they got, it was far from enough.
At the moment when the 8 Iron-Blood Warriors were annihilated, a few beams of white light had locked onto the region where Agu Ya was at.
“Not good, it’s a guided Energy Missile!!”
Agu Ya’s face fell, and could not care about the remaining Iron-Blood Warriors. With a tap of his foot, he leaped high into the skies, trying his best to charge into the inner part of the Fort. At the same time, his body was covered with a bright Radiance of Life. Like this, unless the entire Fort was detonated, he would not be badly affected.
Just as Agu Ya leaped up, the section of the city wall exploded, and the powerful blast consumed the area, while the resulting shockwave spread out.
Agu Ya’s reaction had been extremely quick, escaping the center of the blast radius. However, he was still besieged by the shockwaves, his Radiance of Life dimming greatly.
Right at that moment, 6 Reapers flew out, their weapons hatch flapping open as they pulled out long alloy blades and shot right for him.
“Fool! Did you think I was unprepared?”
Agu Ya laughed coldly, adjusting the bone ax in his hands. A powerful flame shot out from the end of the ax, propelling him towards one of the Reapers.
As he appeared in front of the Reaper, he suddenly felt an intense sense of crisis. He raised his both arms in front, and the Radiance of Life poured out once more, blocking in front of him.
The Reaper exploded out with a terrifying blast, and the resulting shockwave enveloped Agu Ya entirely.
Bai Yi had already calculated that a Reaper was not a match for the Type 6 Agu Ya, the only way to hurt or possibly kill it would be to detonate itself.
When the light faded and the dust cleared, Agu Ya emerged from the aftermath.
Currently, his Radiance of Life had disappeared, while his body was riddled with injuries. His both arms were flopping at the side, apparently having suffered serious damage. There was a trickle of blood at the corner of his mouth.
He stood in mid-air, bellowing furiously, “You guys dare to injure me?! I will kill you all!! I will kill you all!!”
At this moment, an electromagnetic beam shot out suddenly.
He was unable to defend himself at that moment, and the beam slammed into his right shoulder, blowing out a huge bloody hole.
Agu Ya’s body trembled, the ax in his hands burst out in flames once more, sending him towards the ground.
In the air, Agu Ya’s movement depended entirely on the bone ax in his arms. His speed could not be fast. However, on the ground, he would be able to burst out with an incredible speed.
Just as the ax fired out the beam of fire, multiple electromagnetic beams fired out from below.
Chapter 724: Killing Agu Ya!
Facing the countless assault from below, Agu Ya’s left hand reached out and coalesced the Radiance of Life in front of him. As the beams struck the shield, they caused ripples but were ultimately unable to penetrate.
A type 6 Divine Warrior would be able to control the Radiance of Life freely in all sorts of combat situations. The electromagnetic beams were also not at a level where they could injure him.
The automatic weapons that were suppressing the foreign soldiers outside the wall were now focusing fire on Agu Ya under Bai Yi’s control, blasting him with all they got.
After forcefully withstanding goodness knows how many attacks, Agu Ya finally landed on the ground with a pale face, spitting out a large mouthful of blood. The Radiance of Life around his left hand had already collapsed.
When the Radiance of Life on Agu Ya’s left hand flickered out, Yue Zhong appeared behind him noiselessly with the help of the Third Order Stealth. He sent a powerful punch at Agu Ya’s body, enhanced by the Dark Dou Qi.
Agu Ya’s body was incredibly tough, even more so than alloy metal. Under that blow, he was sent flying out like thunder. However, his reaction had been incredibly quick, as his tail swung up with lightning speed and smashed into Yue Zhong barely a millisecond after taking Yue Zhong’s hit.
A huge hole appeared in the Type 5 Battle Suit on Yue Zhong, the immense force causing a few of his bones to fracture. He was also sent flying dozens of meters while spitting out a mouthful of blood.
From afar, a number of laser-mounted vehicles quickly adjusted their aim and fired at Agu Ya.
Agu Ya also spat out blood, his Radiance of Life shining in front of him, forcefully blocking the beams.
The life force of a Type 6 expert was truly abundant, within a short span of time, it is hard for the electromagnetic beams to penetrate it.
If it had been any Type 5 expert, they might be able to summon the Radiance of Life to block, but it would be effective only for a short while. Once the Radiance of Life was broken through, they would then be pierced by the beams.
Yue Zhong slammed hard into a wall, spitting another mouthful of blood. His organs were jolted, as the intense pain nearly sent him unconscious. If it was not for his Third Order Body of Steel, that earlier strike from Agu Ya could have broken him in two.
He bit down hard on his tongue, and the pain kept him awake. He saw the Radiance of Life enveloping Agu Ya’s right hand. Channeling his own Devil Flame, a powerful scarlet arrow coalesced, and it shot through the air instantaneously, slamming into the Radiance of Life.
As the Devil Flames burst out, the Radiance of Life was broken through and started to burn away.
At the moment it collapsed, the Devil Flame punched through and enveloped Agu Ya.
Agu Ya immediately screamed out in agony, thrashing about violently, yet he did not die immediately.
The electromagnetic beams and laser beams continued to slam into his body, resulting in many holes. With a bright flash, his body was soon turned to ash under the intense blaze of the Devil Flames.
With Agu Ya’s death, a huge amount of Life Force came out of his body, before being absorbed into Yue Zhong through the God and Devil Imprint. It swirled around the gold God-Devil Nucleus, nourishing it and causing it to grow even larger.
Some light-gold energy flowed out of the nucleus, spreading through his 4 limbs, enhancing his body.
“Congratulations, your Body of Steel has reached the Fourth Order.”
“Congratulations, you have gained +40 in all attributes.”
“Congratulations, you have gained 6 skill points to be allocated.”
The sweet notifications rang out, and Yue Zhong knew that he had evolved once more. He quickly assigned 5 skill points into the Dark Dou Qi, pushing it to the Fifth Order.
Some light-gold energy flow converged on the bronze rune representing the Dark Dou Qi skill in his mind, and as the gold energy wrapped around the rune, some silverish and profound engravings appeared on the runes.
Yue Zhong quickly channeled the Dark Dou Qi to his injuries, and his bones started producing cracking sounds, as they began healing rapidly.
Within 5 minutes, Yue Zhong’s wounds had recovered with the help of the Dark Dou Qi and Regeneration skills.
He then stood up swiftly and started stretching, discovering that he was in tip-top condition, “My recovery abilities are on par with a Type 4 Mutant Beast. In terms of combat strength, while I’m still slightly off from the Type 6 realm, I’m at least at the peak of Type 5.”
“Oh! This is Type 6 Nucleus, nice!”
Yue Zhong suppressed his joy and swiftly kept the Type 6 Nucleus into his ring, before charging back towards the wall.
Although Agu Ya had been killed by Yue Zhong and Bai Yi joining hands, he had managed to destroy the cluster of Prism Laser Cannons.
At the same time, in order to kill this Agu Ya, Bai Yi had to redirect most of the firepower, allowing the other elites of the foreign races to approach the fort.
Zheng Yan He deployed 10,000 soldiers into the battle, and both sides got embroiled in a cruel slaughter.
The human soldiers had the advantage of technologically advanced weapons, while they were not a match for the Tyranno-Warriors which were natural close quarter combat specialists.
A dozen Tyranno-Warriors charged into the human army and began to slaughter human soldiers. Their bodies darted across the battlefield, everywhere they went, fresh blood would splatter amidst dismembered limbs, and the human soldiers were basically helpless.
However, the remaining Iron-Blood Warriors that had consumed the Scarlet Dragon Pills and not joined the battle at the fort quickly dashed forward to meet the Tyranno-Warriors and elites from the foreign races.
When they were facing Agu Ya, they had been helpless. However, with their half-step Type 6 Realm, they were truly able to fend off the elites of the foreign races.
At this time, a number of heavy assault helicopters rose into the skies, releasing energy bombs and cluster bombs over the foreign armies.
White light, flames, and dust rose into the skies, enveloping the entire area. Tens of thousands of soldiers died under the bombardment from the assault helicopters.
All of a sudden, numerous Type 3 and Type 4 Pterosaurs flew into the air, heading for the assault helicopters.
Some of those that flew too far ahead was pounced on by the Type 4 Pterosaurs. The rotating blades were all knocked askew, and they shuddered in mid-air before plunging towards the ground, exploding in a ball of flames.
In response, the heavy assault helicopters began to fire at those Type 4 Pterosaurs, the guided energy missiles exploding upon contact. It resulted in huge, bloody holes, and the Pterosaurs squawked as they fell to their deaths.
Due to the absence of the Prism Laser Cannons, the heavy assault helicopters had no choice but to retreat while attacking, back into the range of the anti-air defenses. However, the Type 3 and Type 4 Pterosaurs did not seem to mind their own lives, chasing after them and perishing together with the destruction of the helicopters.
In the skies, an entire flock of Pterosaurs flew towards them, with Tyranno-Warriors, Diplodocus-Warriors, Velociraptor-Warriors and other Dino-Warriors riding on them.
Within the Xue Luo Fort, the strongest air defense was the Laser Prism Cannons, their effective range over 18 km. If they were still present, the airborne enemy troops would not have an easy time.
Since those equipment were already destroyed, the Dino-Warriors began to activate their elite forces.
Facing the insane assault of the helicopters, Yue Zhong’s army did not care so much about reserving their strength and threw all they had into the battle.
The Pterosaur riders came above the fort and jumped down, intending to land straight within the Fort.
Many of them perished on their way down, due to the multiple laser beams. However, a fair bit managed to land.
The moment they landed, they were like an unstoppable force, massacring the human soldiers.
At the frontlines of the battle, those Iron-Blood Warriors were coming to the end of the effects of the Scarlet Dragon Pills, coughing out blood as they crumpled to the ground. The next moment, they were torn apart by the foreign races.
In order to fend off the Dino-Warriors, Zheng Yan He sent out another 30 Reapers into the battle. When they entered the battle, they began to reap the lives of the foreign soldiers., decapitating and firing holes at them.
Even so, the human soldiers were still being ripped apart by the foreign races every second. At the same time, the automatic defenses on the fort were being destroyed as well, and the battle reached a dangerous point.
Yue Zhong casually sent out a fist, killing a Type 4 Dino-General, as he frowned when he saw the situation of the fort, “Shit, the fort is going to be breached if this goes on!”
Chapter 725: Bad Situation!
Deep within the Dino-Army camp, the Type 7 Emperor Ba Long looked towards the distance while covered in a layer of dark energy. He coldly ordered, “Kong Liang Jin, Kong Xun Zhu, go bring your men to attack as well! We must destroy that fort!”
The 2 Type 6 High-Grade Dino-Generals stood up and saluted respectfully, before making their way out.
Soon, 2 units dashed out of the camp swiftly. One unit comprised of tall and massive Diplodocus-Warriors of about 7 or 8m in height. The other had smaller Velociraptor-Warriors of about 1.67m. In these 2 units, the weakest was a Low-Grade Dino-General, and they were considered the elite of the elite among the Diplodocus Kingdom and the Velociraptor Kingdom.
Among them, there were 60 of the rare Type 5 Mid-Grade Dino-Generals, while the Low-Grade Dino-Generals numbered 3,000. In the field, they could easily wipe out a 300,000-strong unit of any other race.
These 2 terrifying units were made up mostly of Type 4 experts, their speed already surpassing the sound barrier. They got through the vassal forces and made a beeline for the Fort.
Each Low-Grade Dino-General was capable of slaughtering over hundreds of human soldiers in close combat. Therefore, they had no fear as they rush through the battlefield.
The energy cannons on the fort continued to fire out continuously, but due to the lapse between firing rate, after paying the price of a few casualties, they managed to breach the defensive line of the cannons.
“Warning! Warning!! Based on calculations, the enemy has deployed 122 Type 5 Mid-Grade Dino-Generals, 2 Type 6 Dino-Generals, and 8,345 Type 4 Dino-Generals. Once they get close, the chances of the fort being destroyed will be 95%.”
All of a sudden, Bai Yi’s voice sounded out from the communicator in Yue Zhong’s right hand.
When Agu Ya was attacking the fort, Bai Yi had already picked up the information on the Type 5 and Type 6 Dino-Generals from various sensors.
Due to Yue Zhong’s concern about another assault by a Type 6 expert, most of the biological sensors had been activated, and information flowed to Bai Yi constantly, allowing her to perform live-updates and calculations.
When they heard the report, everyone inside the command center turned pale.
They had just witnessed the terror of a Type 6 expert for themselves barely moments ago. Agu Ya was able to destroy those Iron-Blood Warriors who had don on Type 5 Battle Suits and consumed the Scarlet Dragon Pills. He even managed to destroy those Prism Laser Cannons that could devastate Type 5 experts. Now, 2 were on their way, with Xue Luo Fort’s current defenses, it was impossible to withstand such an attack.
If the defenses of the Xue Luo Fort was still in prime condition, they would be able to beat back the Type 6 experts. However, they did not have that now. The deaths of the millions of vassal soldiers were not in vain. They used their own lives in exchange for the destruction of the defense systems, wearing down on the strength of the fort. At the moment when the defenses were the weakest, the Type 6 experts chose to act.
Zheng Yan He’s face fell slightly. However, he maintained his calm, passing a flurry of orders, “Adjust the Energy Missiles, coordinates…”
A small mountain behind the 20th Fort split open, revealing a number of missile launchers. Many guided Energy Missiles shot into the skies, soaring the front of the Fort.
About 6km behind the Fort, there were some rocket firing pads as well, as the vehicles and weapons parked there began to unleash a torrential rain of rockets into the skies.
From the various corners of the Fort, panels opened, as guided missiles shot out towards the front area of the Fort.
In order to wipe out those 2 incoming Type 6 experts, all the weapons were activated.
Hong! Hong! Hong!
In front of the 20 Forts, bright lights flashed without any blind spots, blasting many of the foreign races as well as numerous Dino-Generals.
Many seemingly invincible Type 5 Dino-Generals were also turned to ashes before that mighty carnage before even exhibiting their strength.
While many of the Dino-Generals were reduced to dust, one of the smaller figures had activated her Radiance of Life at the first chance she got, penetrating the death zone, leaping up the fort.
This small shadow was the leader of the Velociraptor-Warriors, the Type 6 Kong Xun Zhu. The moment she leaped up the fort, she charged right for the inner parts.
A number of blood arrows appeared in the air, in the face of this terrifying enemy, the human soldiers could not even react before their heads were cleaved away swiftly.
The Mech-Fighters could not react as well, and they were ripped apart into pieces.
In a breath, over a hundred human soldiers and 300 Mech-Fighters had been eradicated.
The terrifying thing was that Kong Xun Zhu had no intention of staying there for a moment longer than necessary. She continued to charge right through, tearing apart anything in her way.
Seeing this nightmare in front of them, everyone inside the command center felt a chill in their hearts. If she managed to breach the fort, almost nothing could stop her.
Zheng Yan He had a calm expression, continuing to command the various troops to impede Kong Xun Zhu.
Numerous City Guard soldiers in Type 3 Battle Suits charged forwards with battle intent, blocking her way.
Kong Xun Zhu casually tore an automatic electromagnetic cannon apart, laughing coldly at the City Guards in front of her. She then suddenly disappeared from her location.
The bodies of the City Guards suddenly split apart in showers of blood, turning into multiple pieces of flesh.
When everyone in the command center saw this, their hearts almost stopped. The 200 fully-equipped City Guards did not even last 10 seconds. Inside the fort, no one could stop her advance.
At the same time, another devastating scene occurred, as an 8m-tall figure wrapped in Radiance of Life leaped up the fort with ease.
The huge, towering figure was the Type 6 Dino-General Kong Liang Jin, and he was wielding a huge bone about 12m in length. With a single sweep, he smashed through a Reaper. His powerful strength exploded out, causing the energy shield to shatter before the Reaper became a heap of scrap metal.
Seeing this, the soldiers were terrified. Each Reaper was a precious trump card manufactured by the human race. Their energy shields could theoretically withstand the hits of Type 6 experts. However, Kong Liang Jin had just used a single hit to smash the Reaper. His strength was truly at an unfathomable level.
After destroying the Reaper, Kong Liang Jin flashed and reappeared like a demon among the humans, swinging his huge bone bat in a whirlwind, causing carnage.
The moment he came up on the Fort, many of the humans were slaughtered by him, as blood flowed and limbs flew about. It was practically unstoppable.
At this moment, within the command center, Yue Zhong’s projection appeared on a display, as he ordered, “General Zheng, I’ll leave the 20th Fort to you temporarily. I’ve something I need to do, and I’ll have to leave for a while.”
Zheng Yan He nodded with a resolute gaze, “Rest assured, Your Majesty, I will defend this place with my life.”
Yue Zhong then cut off the communication. With a thought, he summoned Greenie, which appeared out of thin air. He pat its back lightly, and they shot into the sky with a flash, heading for the Dino-army camp.
At the same time, the Storm Battleship that had been hidden also soared into the skies, turning into a flash of light that shot towards the distance.
As Yue Zhong and Greenie soared in the air, a number of Type 3 and Type 4 Pterosaurs flew over.
They all had black, hardy scales, their beaks filled with razor-sharp teeth. They even had long, sharp claws.
The dozens of them shot towards Yue Zhong with a cold, killing intent. Yue Zhong’s eyes narrowed and began to fire his Electromagnetic Cannon without stop. With his Third Order Firearms Manipulation, the beams pierced through the heads of the Pterosaurs, causing their corpses to plunge to the ground.
“It’s him!! It’s him!! He’s finally out!!! He’s finally come out from the Fort!! Hahahaha!!”
Within the camp, a look of ecstasy flashed in the eyes of the Type 7 Emperor Ba Long, whose body was enveloped in the dark energy. He turned into a beam of light as he shot towards Yue Zhong.
Chapter 726: Type 7 Emperor Ba Long!
In the sky, Yue Zhong suddenly felt a hair-raising sense of danger. He turned to the source, only to discover a terrifying figure wrapped in black energy shooting towards him.
Yue Zhong eyed the figure and felt a sense of fear and helplessness. His Danger Perception was alarming him about the vast difference between himself and the owner of that black energy. In front of him, he’s just a slightly bigger ant.
“Type 7 expert!!!”
His thoughts came up to this point, and he could not help but suck in a breath of cold air.
If it were a Type 6 peak expert, even if Yue Zhong was not a match, his Danger Perception could alert him to the threat of the enemy, but never helplessness.
Currently, under the oppressive aura of the Type 7 Emperor Ba Long, Yue Zhong’s body was shuddering. He was extremely clear that in a frontal clash, he would be smacked to death in a single hit.
It must be known that Yue Zhong had to give it his all, together with the defenses of the Fort, to kill the Type 6 Agu Ya with a sneak attack. Against this existence that was superior to Agu Ya, Yue Zhong knew he had no chance of victory.
Yue Zhong patted Greenie’s back and barked, “Greenie, go!! Maximum speed!!!”
Even Greenie had felt the threat from the Type 7 Emperor Ba Long. It channeled its innate ability in a frenzy, as countless tornadoes were whipped up around its body. Its speed then increased by 50%, reaching Mach-3 Speed.
Emperor Ba Long saw Greenie fleeing quickly, and let out an infuriated roar. As a Type 7 expert, it could manipulate the energy of the environment to propel it through the air. However, it was not an air-based expert, thus, its speed could only reach Mach-1. It was unable to catch up to the speedy Greenie.
“Break for me!!”
The eyes of Emperor Ba Long flashed, as he threw out his right fist that was wrapped in that overbearing black energy, while his body was covered with an abundant Radiance of Life.
A black-and-white beam shot towards Greenie like a laser beam, twisting violently, and tore Greenie’s body apart. A huge bloody hole appeared as bones, blood, and organs fell out from the wound.
Suffering this grievous wound, Greenie’s body shuddered, and the energies around its body disappeared. Its eyes dimmed as it began to plummet towards the ground.
The moment they landed on the ground, Yue Zhong rushed over towards Greenie, whose body was wracked with injuries, his heart aching for it.
Greenie was one of the earliest Tamed Beast of Yue Zhong, having followed him through countless battles. It had saved his life on countless occasions. He had grown to treat it as his most important companion, and now that this little fellow had been gravely injured by the Emperor Ba Long, Yue Zhong was filled with anguish and hatred.
“Damn Dino-person!! There’ll be a day for your reckoning!! I’ll crush your entire race!!”
Yue Zhong suppressed the pain in his heart, as he swept a glance at Greenie, before activating his Dark Dou Qi and Third Order Stealth. He then dashed towards the forest.
Currently, Greenie was still not dead. However, if Yue Zhong were to stay, then the two of them would definitely die. The Type 7 Divine Warrior was simply too strong. Yue Zhong had no way of dealing with it even by employing all his trump cards.
Yue Zhong had not left for more than 10 seconds when the black figure shot past overhead. It did not even spare Greenie a glance.
Emperor Ba Long had slaughtered numerous Mutant Beasts, many of them Type 5. Only those at the Type 6 and Type 7 realm would cause him to hesitate. A Type 4 Mutant Beast was practically an ant to him.
Yue Zhong dashed through the forest, empowered by the Dark Dou Qi. His speed had reached the 2.5 Mach limit. The air and wind around him were like blades that cut into his skin. If it was not for his powerful Endurance, he could not possibly travel like this for long.
At that speed, his Stamina was also being reduced at a drastic rate. He could at most hang out for another 5 minutes.
As he ran, his heart was pounding fast. He knew that the dangerous entity was closing in on him. On the ground, even if his speed was 2.5 Mach, he could not outrun the Type 7 Emperor Ba Long.
The stern and overbearing voice from the Dino-Emperor resounded, “Human, surrender now and hand me the God and Devil Imprint obediently and I will spare your life, making you a leader of the country!”
Yue Zhong kept quiet, taking a deep breath, and charged forwards without the intention of minding his words. As long as he spoke, he would reveal his location, and his speed would decrease. At this critical juncture, even slowing down slightly would mean death.
After one second, Yue Zhong looked up into the sky with joy, noticing the fortress-like Storm Battleship soaring over here.
Activating his Bone-Encompassing Armor, the bone carapace enveloped him. With a thought, 2 sharp bone spikes sent him into the sky, towards the Storm Battleship.
Emperor Ba Long lifted his head and recognized the Storm Battleship. His pupils narrowed, as he shot towards it, “This is the Storm Battleship!! One of the final war weapons of humankind. This antiquity is still around?! It doesn’t seem to have enough energy. Let me destroy this weapon myself!”
The Storm Battleship was a legacy weapon from the war between the humans and Dino-race. At its peak, even Type 7 experts would perish under its assault.
However, it required a huge amount of energy. Each time it battled, it would require Type 6 and even Type 7 Mutant Beast nuclei. It could not sustain combat for long and in the end, many of them had been destroyed by the Type 7 experts then.
Emperor Ba Long looked on as Yue Zhong got on the Battleship, his eyes flashing with a cold light. He then channeled the black energy through his right fist and sent a punch towards the Battleship.
A black fist tore through the skies, blasting towards Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong had no way of dodging it, and could only channel the Dark Dou Qi to envelop himself. He flipped his hands and a huge shield and another energy shield appeared, blocking in front of him.
When the black beam slammed into the energy shield, it shattered instantly. It then hit the huge shield, also destroying it. Finally, having lost some of its momentum, the beam then slammed into Yue Zhong, sending him shooting towards the Battleship, leaving him with more broken bones.
“Thankfully I’ve already evolved. Otherwise, I would have died from that strike.” Yue Zhong felt a sharp pain in his chest, as he coughed out once. A large amount of blood came out, mixed in with some pieces of his organs, and he thought to himself.
If it were him before fighting Agu Ya, that single strike could have killed him. Since he evolved and his Dark Dou Qi had been strengthened, it had saved his life, preventing him from becoming a meat paste.
“Attack!! Protect the Leader!!”
Many of Yue Zhong’s soldiers on board the ship quickly joined the fray. They pulled out laser guns and electromagnetic cannons and fired wildly at Emperor Ba Long.
When the attacks hit the body of Emperor Ba Long, they were dispersed without much effect.
At the same time, over a thousand Winged elites flew out, pulling out their bows and arrows and firing at Emperor Ba Long.
Emperor Ba Long eyed the Winged elites coldly and sucked in a deep breath before barking out loud.
A tyrannical soundwave blasted outward, and the thousand Winged Elites who were lower than the Type 3 Divine Realm realm bled from their orifices and died. The rest who were more fortunate felt their eardrums shatter and a powerful headache.
The thousand Winged Elites started to fall out of the air from a single roar emitted by the Emperor Ba Long.
Within the Storm Battleship, although it had a strong soundproof material, the hundreds of human soldiers were still affected the tremors caused by the roar. They also bled from their orifices and died.
“Bai Yi, hurry activate the defense systems!”
Yue Zhong charged through the Battleship and came in front of a computer panel where a compartment appeared. He swiftly placed the 2 precious Type 6 Mutant Beast nuclei as well as 10 Type 5 nuclei, hollering out anxiously.
The moment Emperor Ba Long was allowed to rampage through this Battleship, the hundreds of thousands of lives on this Battleship would be sacrificed. That was how terrifying a Type 7 expert was, they were akin to a disaster.
“Got it! Systems activated, energy transference in progress!”
“Detecting defensive systems, progress at 83.3%…”
“Permission granted, energy transference through, defenses activated!”
After a flurry of announcements from Bai Yi, the Storm Battleship lit up radiantly, releasing bright lights everywhere.
The calm and impassive Emperor Ba Long finally felt a tinge of fear, “Shit!! The defense systems are activated!”
Chapter 727: Halfway Down, the Last Fort!
Countless beams shot out from the Storm Battleship, and a huge energy shield formed, encompassing the Battleship.
The face of Emperor Ba Long fell, as he stepped through the air, arriving in front of the Battleship. He sent a fist wrapped in the Black Energy, blasting towards the shield.
Following a loud impact, Emperor Ba Long’s fist was able to send a terrifying shockwave all around the shield, the ripple almost breaking it apart.
“Warning! Warning! Due to the attack from a Type 7 expert, the Energy Shield’s defense ability has decreased by 1%!”
After that strike from Emperor Ba Long, alarms rang throughout the entire Storm Battleship.
The massive Battleship’s shield could not diffuse the power of the Emperor Ba Long, it was truly a testimony to how powerful he was.
Yue Zhong swiftly ordered, “Leave here immediately!! Head for the Xue Luo Fort!!”
Under Yue Zhong’s orders, the Battleship flashed forward, with its speed reaching a terrifying Mach-5 speed.
When Emperor Ba Long saw how fast the Storm Battleship was, he roared out in rage. He sent another fist out, the Black Energy from his fist directly tearing apart a small mountain below him.
The Storm Battleship could only withstand a Type 7 expert if it had a Type 7 Mutant Beast nucleus. However, with the absorption of the Type 6 Nuclei, its flying speed was not something a Type 7 expert could keep up with.
Soon, the Battleship managed to fly above the battlefield.
In the skies, there were many Type 2, Type 3 and even Type 4 Mutant Pterosaurs flying about in droves. It was a horrendous sight, as though the entire sky was being covered.
Yue Zhong eyed the beasts and ordered, “Barge through them!!”
The Storm Battleship then charged through like a shooting star, slamming right into the flock of Pterosaurs.
One of the Type 4 Pterosaur of over 80 m in wingspan was slammed by the Battleship, and its body instantly contorted, turning into meat paste splattering all over the energy shield.
The rest of the Mutant Pterosaurs also faced the same fate when they were slammed into, dropping out of the skies.
In just 2 breaths, over a hundred Pterosaurs had been knocked out of the skies, and the Storm Battleship had charged right through them.
Currently, the Xue Luo Fort was already at a half-collapsed state. Hordes of Dino-warriors were charging into the fort, slaughtering the human soldiers.
There were many human corpses and broken Mech-Fighters strewn all over the field, as well as the broken remnants of the defense systems.
Within the human army, many were fighting back valiantly. However, there were also many who could not take the pressure and fled.
Among these hundred thousand soldiers, the ones who fought back with much valor were the veterans from the 1st to 3rd Forts. They had a strong faith and believed in honor. Even when their casualties reached 40%, they did not crumble nor lose hope, instead, fighting as hard as ever.
Although the soldiers of the 4th to 9th Fort had strict training, the moment their death toll reached 20%, many started to flee in defeat.
Within the Fort, one Type 3 Velociraptor laughed savagely. His body flashed forward and his right claw reached out to slash at a fleeing human soldier, tearing him in two.
“No!! Help!! Help me!!”
Seeing their comrades dying at the hands of the Velociraptor-Warrior, many of the human soldiers began to panic and screamed in fear.
The current number of fleeing soldiers were at least a dozen. If they worked together and turned back to fire at the Type 3 Velociraptor, they might possibly defeat him. However, all that was in their hearts now was fear.
One soldier wearing a Type 4 Battle Suit and wielding a Battle Spear shot forward. His Spear radiated with a bright light, piercing directly into the chest of the Velociraptor-Warrior.
“Don’t run!! Turn around and fight!! I…”
Before he could finish his words, a huge bone mace came down from the sky, smashing into his body, turning him into meat paste.
Kong Liang Jin walked over, his towering height of 8 meters, his eyes flashing with a vicious light. He then grabbed a struggling human soldier and took a huge bite out of him.
With a loud crack, the human soldier was bitten in two, his organs spilling out from Kong Liang Jin’s mouth, giving him an even more terrifying look.
Seeing that gruesome scene was enough to send the rest of the human soldiers around to break down and try to flee.
The Type 6 Dino-General let out a loud and savage laugh, as he shot forward, waving his bone bat, smashing 5 or 6 human soldiers into meat paste.
Right then, a laser beam shot out from a bunker, blasting into the body of Kong Liang Jin.
The laser beam that could pierce a tank barely caused a graze in Kong Liang Jin’s body.
He stepped forward in fury, his bone bat smashing down on the bunker. His terrifying strength exploded out, directly destroying the bunker and the human soldiers inside. The wound on his body healed at an incredible speed.
After he casually destroyed that bunker, he charged towards the other bunkers, destroying each one the moment he appeared in front of them. These bunkers that were hard to destroy even with the firepower from tanks, were crushed easily by him, and many human soldiers were turned into meat paste.
From within the pile of a destroyed bunker, one human soldier had a cold gaze as he locked onto a Tyranno-Warrior that was munching on the body of a human soldier and fired his weapon.
The beam shot through the air and blasted the Tyranno-Warrior’s head wide open.
With a swish, 5 Lizard-Warriors and 2 Diplodocus-Warriors turned over and disappeared from their locations, charging over towards him.
“Freaks, your granddaddy is over here…” The human soldier barely managed to croak out, when a Diplodocus-Warrior appeared behind him.
With a single fist, the Diplodocus Warrior pummeled the human soldiers, crushing his head like a watermelon. In close combat, humans could never compare with these foreign races. This was the biggest disadvantage of the humans.
At almost the same time, a bright light flashed from that location. The next moment, a huge explosion consumed that Diplodocus-Warrior as well as the 3 Lizard-Warriors that had gotten too close.
Inside the command center, all the officers were staring at the displays with pale countenances.
Every single display was feeding back the defeat and deaths of the human soldiers, as well as the massacre by the Dino-Warriors. At the same time, there were many heroes who did not care about their own lives and took out their enemies in suicide attacks.
Bai Yi was helping out Zheng Yan He, but in the face of absolute strength, it was futile.
With every passing second, more equipment was being destroyed, and over thousands of soldiers were dying. There were some who were fearful to the point they got down on their knees to surrender, only to be eaten alive.
After the world had changed, many of the Mutant Beasts had further evolved to possess intelligence and had savagery in their blood. In their hunger, they could even consume the corpses of other races. Humans were just moving food to them.
One officer came up to Zheng Yan He and tried to persuade him, “General, it’s time to evacuate!! The fort is going to fall!! We have to run now, otherwise, it’ll be too late!”
Everyone’s gaze fell upon him, their eyes flickering with hope. Even ants were fearful of death, much less these humans.
Zheng Yan He had a steely glint as he glared at the officer, “No! When His Majesty gave me the reigns over the Fort, I’d promised to live and die with the Fort! Now, there’re many of our valiant and heroic comrades who are still down there fighting! As their comrade, friend, and commander, how can I do such a cowardly thing?! Zhuo Ye, do not speak to me about evacuating, ever again!”
Zhuo Ye stepped back in shame, “Yes! Great General!”
Zheng Yan He turned around and bowed deeply, “Everyone, we are the core, the heart, the brain of this entire Fort!! We cannot leave at this critical moment!! I hope that everyone can join me and fight to the last breath, for the sake of our people in Cloud Region!! Please!!”
“We’re willing to die with Great General!!” Inside the command center, everyone felt bolstered by his words and roared out in heated excitement.
As the highest commander in the fort, Zheng Yan He actually did not choose to retreat, putting his life on the line. These hot-blooded warriors would naturally not leave him behind as well.
Chapter 728: Raytheon Cannon!
About 300m away from the fort, a Type 5 Velociraptor-Warrior pounced onto a fleeing human soldier, chomping down on his neck.
With a loud crack, the neck of the soldier was snapped.
The Velociraptor Warrior then used his claws to grab the body while devouring the rest of him. It was a truly gory sight.
At one corner of the fort, there was a human in a Type 5 Battle Suit hidden within the ruins. There was only the slightest sign of life from him, as though he was dead, and he wielded a special RS335 electromagnetic sniper cannon, quietly staring at a distance.
This particular human soldier was called Guo Sai. He was the top sniper of the 1st Fort, and the weapon in his hand was a specially-customized elite sniper weapon. It required Type 5 Mutant Beast nuclei to power and could destroy tanks with a single shot.
There were only about 15 of such rifles within the entire Cloud Region, after all, the Type 5 Mutant Beast nuclei were too precious. Furthermore, most of them were used to power the Type 5 Battle Suits, or to power the more powerful Reapers.
When the Type 5 Velociraptor Warrior was consuming the human soldier, Guo Sai silently pulled the trigger.
A terrifying electromagnetic beam shot out and directly penetrated the head of the Velociraptor Warrior, blasting it apart.
The dozens of other Velociraptor Warriors turned to stare at the rubble, and with a tap of their feet, they darted over.
Guo Sai quickly jumped up from his spot, pulling out 2 ordinary Electromagnetic Cannons and retreated. He fired out continuously, killing off the ordinary Velociraptor Warriors.
However, there were 10 Type 4 experts within them, and since their race had an advantage in speed, it was hard for the naked eye to capture their movements.
Guo Sai was also just an initial Type 4 Divine Warrior. He was exceptional in his sniping skills, but nothing else. Even with his Type 5 Battle Suit, his speed could not outstrip those Velociraptor Warriors and their powerful legs.
The 10 Velociraptor Warriors appeared all around him, preparing to pounce on him.
“Is it over? At least I managed to wipe out a Type 5 Dino-Warrior!”
A powerful sense of death welled up in his heart, and his eyes flashed with a resolute glint. The Type 5 nucleus behind also began to glow brightly.
Right as he was about to risk his life, a number of light beams shot down from the skies, and the heads of the Velociraptor Warriors erupted.
“What’s going on?”
Guo Sai lifted his head to the skies, only to discover an enormous floating fortress, with countless beams of light raining upon the fort and battlefield.
At another part of the battlefield, dozens of Velociraptor Warriors were hunting hundreds of human soldiers. There were many corpses of human soldiers, torn apart and badly mangled. In contrast, there were only 1 or 2 Velociraptor Warrior corpses.
The rhythm of the battle was slowly moving towards the favor of the Dino-Army, and it seemed impossible for the human soldiers to turn the tide. At the same time, the casualties of humans compared to foreign races were more than 100:1. Each time a foreign race soldier was killed, over a hundred humans had already been killed.
One Velociraptor Warrior pounced lightly and knocked a human soldier down on the ground, opening his jaws in preparation to crunch down on the head of the unfortunate soldier.
The human soldier’s eyes flashed with despair and hopelessness.
At that moment, a beam of light shot down and pierced the Velociraptor Warrior’s head, directly killing him. Fresh blood splattered all over the human soldiers.
“What is that? Has God come and save us?”
Having returned from the gates of death, the human soldier looked up at the floating fortress, his gaze full of wonder and amazement.
Inside the command center, Zheng Yan He saw the Storm Battleship, and exclaimed in spite of himself, “That’s His Majesty!! That’s Yue Zhong!! He did not abandon us!! He’s back!!!”
Zheng Yan He thought that Yue Zhong had abandoned them, and chose to retreat himself. He knew that it would have been the right choice to make, after all, he was the Emperor, and the whole Cloud Region needed him. If he fell, they would have no leader, and there would just be internal chaos. However, he still could not help but feel disappointed. It was all wiped away the moment he saw the Storm Battleship, his hope was rekindled.
“His Majesty Yue Zhong!! Is that really His Majesty?!!”
“Long live His Majesty Yue Zhong!!”
Instantly, the command center erupted in excited cheers. These commanders had all made the resolute decision to die, however, upon hearing that there was a chance to survive, they could not help themselves.
Zheng Yan He swiftly passed the order, “Immediately convey the command, His Majesty Yue Zhong has arrived with reinforcements, they have to fight on!!”
With his command, the various officers quickly got to work, disseminating the information into the multi-purpose helmets of the human soldiers.
Inside the command center, Zheng Yan He’s orders could reach every single rank-and-file soldier. However, once there was panic and chaos, it did not matter the command from above, no one would follow.
Upon hearing that Yue Zhong was back with reinforcements, the soldiers on the frontlines immediately got invigorated, their morale rising.
Many of those who were fleeing, turned their heads to see the Storm Battleship, feeling excited and ashamed at the same time.
The beams of light from the Battleship was taking out hundreds of Dino-Warriors like it was nothing. Every single existence under the Type 5 realm was being annihilated.
“Energy depletion at 20%. Based on the current speed, the Battleship will run out of energy in 5 minutes.”
“Based on estimations, after 2 minutes, other than the 2 Type 6 Divine Warriors, all other enemies will be wiped out.”
A number of robotic announcements reported the situation to Yue Zhong.
The Battleship was the final weapon of war produced by the human race in the past. With terrifying firepower, its central computer was even more powerful than those of the Forts. When Bai Yi gained control of the computer, she was able to fully exhibit the calculation powers of the incredible piece of technology. The firing of the lasers was extremely precise, instantly killing many Type 5 Dino-Warriors.
Each time there was a volley of laser beams, many of the Type 3 and Type 4 Mutant Beast nuclei would shatter, channeling the energy into the Battleship.
“Get rid of that fellow!!”
Yue Zhong pointed to Kong Liang Jin rampaging around in the fort and ordered.
“Yes! Killing the Type 6 Divine Warrior, based on estimated, would take 3 Type 5 Mutant Beast nuclei. Please insert the Type 5 or Type 6 nuclei to proceed.”
Following a robotic sound, an energy compartment revealed itself in front of Yue Zhong.
Yue Zhong frowned but decided to throw 3 precious Type 5 Mutant Beast nuclei into the compartment. After taking down the Capital, he had gained many of them. Killing a Type 6 Divine Warrior with 3 Type 5 nuclei was worth it. After all, if he were to face Kong Liang Jin now, it was likely that he would lose.
When the 3rd nucleus was inserted, a panel on top of the battleship opened, revealing a 10m-tall cannon, with countless engravings on it. The cannon seemed to be made out of countless crystal tubes, and as it stuck out, it turned to point towards Kong Liang Jin.
“Not good!! Danger!!”
The moment the cannon revealed itself, Kong Liang Jin felt a sense of danger, stopping himself in the midst of his murderous rampage. With a tap of his foot, he retreated explosively.
Countless light beams traveled along the crystal-like tubes, converging inside the main cannon, as the runes all around started to light up.
At the next moment, a terrifying laser beam shot out from the cannon, instantly reaching the ground. The point of impact lit up glaringly, reaching an area of about 1 km in diameter, consuming Kong Liang Jin.
“Raytheon Cannon!!! No!!”
Kong Liang Jin let out a scream of fear and rage, his body erupting with the Radiance of Life to try to defend himself.
Under the assault of that seemingly godly light, Kong Liang Jin’s Radiance of Life was smashed through like nothing, his body enveloped by it.
After the light dispersed, the area had turned into a huge pit, and the Type 6 Kong Liang Jin had been reduced to nothing more than dust.
“Raytheon Cannon!! That was the Raytheon Cannon!!”
At the other side of the fort, the Type 6 Kong Xun Zhu had seen how the pillar of light destroyed her comrade. Her face turned pale as she quickly tried to escape deeper into Cloud Region. With her current position, the only way of survival was in.
Chapter 729: The Fall of Xue Luo Fort!
“The 2nd Type 6 Divine Warrior has already fled outside of the sure-kill range. Based on estimations, the chances of killing are 30%, heavily injured 50%, not hitting her at all: 20%. Do you want to proceed? If so, please insert Type 5 nuclei.”
Another compartment appeared in front of Yue Zhong.
The Storm Battleship’s main Raytheon Cannon was incredibly powerful. A single shot from it could kill a Type 6 Divine Warrior. Within the region of 5 km, it could definitely kill one in a single shot. Outside of the region, due to the speed of the Type 6 Divine Warrior, the Raytheon Cannon could not get a guaranteed kill in one hit.
Yue Zhong fell silent for a moment and made a choice: “Do not attack!”
On the way back to the Xue Luo Fort, he had seen the number of Dino-Army camps, there were too many Dino-Warriors around. Even if he used up all the nuclei in his hands, he would not be able to wipe out all of them.
They were different from the human soldiers. All of the foreign races were being deployed out at full strength into the battlefield.
Even a female Dino-Warrior could be utilized in war. They were just slightly weaker than the male ones, and they were similarly proficient in hunting, working, and fighting. This was the terrifying thing about the foreign races.
The gigantic Storm Battleship landed slowly near the hole of the Fort and began to fire out countless beams at the Dino-Warriors, killing them all.
In the Xue Luo Fort’s command center, the display suddenly lit up and Yue Zhong’s figure appeared.
He immediately gave an order, “This is Yue Zhong, General Zheng. Heed my commands, gather all personnel to board the Battleship, right now.”
Zheng Yan He’s heart sank, “Your Majesty, if all the soldiers are to board, what happens to the Fort?”
Yue Zhong replied sternly, “Give it up. We have to evacuate immediately. The enemy is too strong. Even with this Battleship, we cannot defend it. If we don’t evacuate now, we will all fall here. We need to preserve our men.”
Zheng Yan He fell silent for a moment, before replying solemnly, “Understood! Your Majesty!”
He knew what Yue Zhong meant. These were all the elites of the human race. They had already suffered for so long, and yet, they managed to hold out and fend off an enemy 20 times the size of themselves. If these elite forces were to fall here, it would be a huge loss to the human race.
If they all survived and were reorganized, through the baptism of hell and fire, they would be an intensely strong army.
Zheng Yan He proceeded to give short but precise orders, and the various soldiers of the frontline began to move from their cover towards the Battleship.
A huge cloud of black energy came shooting from a distance, entering the command center of the Dino-Army. It was the Type 7 Emperor Ba Long.
The moment Emperor Ba Long got back to the seat, he roared out in fury, “Damn it! It’s the Storm Battleship! That sort of historical weapon shouldn’t even exist in this world!! Attack!! Attack with full force!!”
If it had been on the field, Emperor Ba Long had the confidence that he could whittle down the Battleship’s energy shield, since it was not fully powered at the moment.
However, the Storm Battleship was on the Xue Luo Fort right now, as long as the Raytheon Cannon was fired, even he would be injured. He did not want to fall at the Xue Luo Fort. In any case, even if more of his Dino-army perished, it would not matter to him. The Dino-Race had already been the overlords of this world for so long. It would not take much effort to repopulate.
Under Emperor Ba Long’s order, all the Dino-Warriors roared out madly in response and charged towards the Fort. In the skies, the Pterosaurs also soared over in huge droves, blocking out the sky.
On the Battleship, all the soldiers were currently behind cover, utilizing their weapons to fire at the incoming enemies.
At this moment, the Winged Race, Storm Valley, and Yue Zhong’s army were all giving it their best, attacking the Dino-Warriors. They had no more intentions of hiding behind. It was a critical moment, and should the Dino-Warriors make it past their ship, everyone would die.
The elites who had just boarded the ship managed to catch a moment’s breath, before taking up their weapons again and engaged in combat under the instructions of Bai Yi.
The various Dino-Warriors charged over, only to be fired full of holes under the rain of laser beams.
With that sort of mindless and suicidal charge, the energy of the Battleship was being depleted. Even with the help of the human soldiers defending, many Type 3 and Type 4 Nuclei shattered upon their depletion.
The might of the Battleship was overbearing because it had a huge energy reserve. Thus, in order to retain that sort of firing rate, the energy had to be sufficient.
It was precisely because the Storm Battleship had been depleted of its energy in the past, that the humans of that era had fallen at the hands of the Dino-Warriors, and forced into Cloud Region.
On the hull, Yue Zhong wielded his Electromagnetic Cannon and fired out constantly. Each of his shots would cause a Pterosaur to be killed in a shower of blood.
The Pterosaurs in the skies, as well as their riders, would descend sharply, dropping right into the midst of the humans. They would then slaughter whoever they could, as well as destroy the automatic defenses, before being killed.
Guo Sai, the excellent sniper, was currently camped out at a dark corner. Each time he pulled the trigger, he would claim the life of a Low-Grade Dino-General or a Mid-Grade Dino-General.
Although there was a large number of human experts acting, from time to time, many of them would be torn apart by the descending Dino-Warriors and their Pterosaur mounts.
With the firepower of the Battleship, it could easily produce a huge fire net, preventing the Dino-Warriors from entering the ship, at the same time, wiping out all of them near the Fort. However, in doing so, it would take up too much energy. With the current reserves, they could use that to hold out for at most 5 minutes. Unless it was a desperate moment, Yue Zhong would not resort to that.
After killing another 3 Pterosaurs with ease, Yue Zhong spoke into the communicator, “How many more soldiers are not yet here?”
Bai Yi replied swiftly, “Based on scans, there are still 4325 signs of life inside the Fort. There’s no way to reach them through the communication channels, they must have abandoned their helmets. There’s still 53% energy left, please insert more nuclei.”
Yue Zhong chuckled bitterly, in order to maintain the combat strength of the Storm Battleship, he had given half of Xue Luo Fort’s storage. He did not expect it to last for barely an hour, and 47% had already been depleted.
With a resolute glint, he gave the order, “Set off now, head for the Imperial Capital!!”
Although there were still 4,000 human elites within the Fort, if they continued like this, the hundreds of thousands on the Ship would fall at the hands of the Dino-Warriors.
In comparing the 2, Yue Zhong made a helpless decision.
With Yue Zhong’s order, the Battleship glowed, and immediately utilized the fire net. All the Dino-Warriors within a 300m-radius were instantly wiped out.
From within the Battleship, an immense alloy armor quickly covered the ship.
Next, the Battleship began to rise amidst powerful jets of flames and air, before it shot towards the distance.
Seeing it fly away, Emperor Ba Long roared out with a maddened expression, “Damn it!! They’re getting away!! Chase after them!!”
Yue Zhong’s God and Devil Imprint, as well as the God-Devil Nucleus he had congealed, were important ingredients for Emperor Ba Long to evolve. Seeing the prey that was almost in his hands get away, Emperor Ba Long was obviously enraged.
Following his orders, countless Dino-Warriors quickly got on their Pterosaurs as they soared into the air and chased after the Storm Battleship.
Emperor Ba Long was clear that their speed could not match up with the Battleship, but in his rage, he gave such an order.
He stared at the Xue Luo Fort with a venomous look and snapped, “Damn it! Tear this damn Fort apart!!”
If it was not for the huge amount of explosives within the Forts, Emperor Ba Long would have long since charged through himself, killing every single human soldier cleanly. Yue Zhong would not have been able to get away scot-free as well.
20,000 Armored Rat-Warriors charged through the Fort, tearing everything apart in a frenzy.
The rest of the Dino-Warriors also breached the Fort, chasing the Battleship further towards Cloud Region.
At that moment when half of the Fort was torn apart, a huge explosion occurred, enveloping those 20,000 Armored Rat-Warriors and annihilating them.
Chapter 730: Emperor Ba Long’s Tactics!
As the dust from the explosion settled, where the 20th Xue Luo Fort used to be, there was only a huge ditch.
The Forts that had stood as the final defense for the human race in the past hundreds of years had finally fallen.
The moment the last Fort was destroyed, the Dino-Army immediately poured into Cloud Region in huge droves, spreading out like wildfire.
The Cloud Region was incredibly vast, with countless humans living in all sorts of areas, cities, even in villages. These were all areas where the government could not reach.
The moment the Dino-Warriors invaded Cloud Region, they began to slaughter these straggling human bases without mercy.
At a camp which was filled with Dino-Warriors, dozens of human males were being dragged away by 4 Low-Grade Dino-Generals.
Inside the camp, a number of Type 6 Dino-Generals were seated, exuding a terrifying aura.
They stared at the humans coldly, and the leader among the humans, who was a handsome man, was so badly frightened that his face turned pale and he slumped to the floor. A putrid liquid came out between his pants, as he stammered, “Don’t kill me!! Don’t kill me!! As long as you spare my dog life, I’m willing to do anything!!”
Seeing the pathetic state of the man, the various High-Grade Dino-Generals had disdain in their eyes. They admired and respected heroes and experts, as to these humans without a backbone, they viewed them with contempt.
On the throne, Emperor Ba Long was clouded with a black energy, coldly asking, “What’s your name? Where are you from?”
The young man felt his heart jumped, and quickly replied, “I’m Luo Yi, one of the direct heirs of the Blood-Red City’s Luo Clan, the future viscount.”
Emperor Ba Long continued, “Luo Yi, I’ll ask you this, where’s the imperial capital of your Cloud Region?”
Luo Yi hurried to answer, “The Capital is in the Imperial City. I know how to go, leave me alive, I’m willing to serve Your Majesty with all my heart!”
Emperor Ba Long looked down at Luo Yi condescendingly, and declared, “Very good! Luo Yi! I can spare your life, as long as you swear to serve this Seat, I will support you to become the king of the human race.”
Luo Yi immediately kneeled in joy and began kowtowing as he swore, “Thank you, Your Majesty! Thank you, Your Majesty! I, Luo Yi, swear to the heavens, that I will serve His Majesty Emperor Ba Long with all my life, till the day I die!!”
The Dino-race was the dominant power in this world, any Dino-Kingdom could easily crush all the fighting forces within Cloud Region.
The Cloud Region had remained safe all these years purely because of the Xue Luo 20 Forts. The Dino-Kingdoms also had their own friction among themselves. Those Dino-Kings were never interested in Cloud Region, hence, the humans had been able to survive for so long.
Now that the 20 Forts had fallen, the Cloud Region no longer had a defense force that could stand up to any of the Dino-armies. With their strength, they could capture hundreds of thousands of humans as their slaves with ease. To Luo Yi, being a King of a hundred thousand was already more than enough for him.
Emperor Ba Long eyed Luo Yi coldly and spoke, “You’re dismissed! Those humans who were captured along with you are now your subjects, go settle them yourself.”
Luo Yi bowed respectfully, “Yes!”, before leaving.
One of the Type 6 Velociraptor Warrior could not help but ask, “Your Majesty, why did you let that human become a King? Isn’t it easier for us to just make them all slaves, or eat them directly?”
The rest of the Type 6 Dino-Generals had the same look of agreement as their gazes fell upon Emperor Ba Long. After this cruel battle with the Xue Luo 20 Forts, many of their kingdoms had suffered heavy losses. They were filled with hatred for the humans, some directly killing the humans when they encountered them.
Emperor Ba Long’s eyes flashed with a glint, “No! This time, the enemy we’re facing is not simple. He might be the most dangerous enemy we have had to face. It is a test for our Dino-race, as well as a potential catastrophe. If we can get past this, our race will then soar to greater heights. If not, what awaits us is likely our downfall.”
One Type 6 Dino-General frowned as he asked, albeit with a lost expression, “Enemy? How can those humans be our enemy? Unless…unless they’re the Apostles of God?!”
Hearing that term, all the Type 6 Dino-Generals had a huge change in expression, their pupils narrowing.
As the victors of the previous war, the Dino-Race got to know a lot of secrets. They were extremely clear that while they were the overlords of this planet, their fate was still in the hands of this mighty existence far beyond their understanding.
Yue Zhong was a man of the God and Devil Imprint, which was recognized as a sign of an Apostle of God. Each of them was the elite among the humans, and they were difficult experts to deal with. In the past, their race had come to blows with one such being before.
However, this was a matter over hundreds of years ago. Since then, the Dino-race had not paid much attention to the humans.
Emperor Ba Long’s eyes flashed with a crafty glint, as he laughed coldly, “That’s right! He’s an Apostle of God. All of you had better abandon all thoughts of underestimating your opponent and use all of your might to deal with those humans. Humans are a pathetic bunch, as long as we can utilize them properly, they can fall apart from within easily. Dealing with scattered humans would then be easier. By the time we have finished dealing with the Apostle of God, we can then deal with the rest of humankind however we want.”
Inside the Capital, Chen Tai was leading a patrol unit of a dozen guards, keeping an eye atop the city wall. He looked out over the wall, noticing that there was a long queue of humans, stretching for about 20 li. They were all moving out towards the mountain valley containing the Gate of Hell. His eyes flashed with worry and unease. This was a huge, unprecedented move, leaving behind this world that had lived in for dozens of years. Fleeing to another foreign world, there was no way he could not be uneasy and worried.
Right at this moment, one city guard looked up and his face fell. Pointing to the sky, he exclaimed, “General! Look, what’s that?!”
Chen Tai lifted his head and was shocked. He discovered a huge floating fortress that blocked out a huge patch of the sky, descending towards the ground.
Many soldiers got nervous and wielding their weapons to aim at the huge Storm Battleship.
Suddenly, Yue Zhong’ projection appeared in various displays throughout the city, “This is Yue Zhong. I’m on the Storm Battleship, one of our trump cards.”
“It’s His Majesty!!”
“Storm Battleship? Isn’t that a frickin’ floating fortress?!”
“That’s amazing!! With such a fortress, we don’t have to fear to lose a home!”
From within the city walls, the people began to erupt in cheers and excited discussion.
Chen Tai looked at the Battleship with a look of relief, “It truly is something only His Majesty is capable of!”
Yue Zhong walked out of the Battleship, and went into the Capital, summoning all the officers.
He swept everyone a gaze, before asking Dou Meng directly, “Dou Meng, what’s the situation on the ground now?”
Dou Meng replied, “Based on the current number of humans in the capital that are going through the Gate of Hell, it would likely be completed in 5 days.”
Yue Zhong frowned and asked, “5 days, it’s truly too long. Is there any way to expedite it?”
There was over a few thousand kilometers to the Capital from the Xue Luo Forts. If it was a journey for humans without any transportation, it would be hard to complete the journey even in a half a year.
However, to those Dino-Warriors, it would take them a few days. If they did not rest and just hurried all the way, it was possible to reach in 1 day.
Dou Meng did not answer that question, instead, he asked, “Your Majesty, has the Xue Luo Fort truly fallen?”
The rest of the officers also turned to look at Yue Zhong. They had already known of the results of the battle, but they wanted to obtain the information directly from Yue Zhong’s mouth.
Yue Zhong replied softly, “It has already fallen! Based on our estimations, 16 Dino-kingdoms had taken part in the attack on us, with more than 1 Type 6 Dino-General. In the end, our Forts have fallen.”
Hearing the report, everyone’s face was downcast.
The Xue Luo Forts had never fallen since they were constructed, and were the strongest shield of the human race. However, now that it had fallen under the relentless assault of the true might of the Dino-race, these people were rocked.
Dou Meng looked as though he had aged 5 or 6 years, and sighed, “Your Majesty, 5 days is already the fastest that we can go. No matter what, you’ll have to hold out for 5 days.”
Yue Zhong fell silent and nodded, “Alright! I will go try my best to fight for 5 more days.”
After the meeting was dismissed, Yue Zhong walked out quietly, a tremendous pressure on him. The lives and deaths of hundreds of thousands of people was not a small matter.
He had not walked very far, when he came across Luo Qing Qing, who was in her Type 5 Battle Suit, walking towards him.
She gazed at him and could tell that something was wrong, “Something troubling you?”
Yue Zhong chuckled bitterly, “5 days, I have to buy them 5 more days’ worth of time. How am I going to do that?”
Luo Qing Qing’s brows arched, “Yue Zhong, this isn’t like you. No matter what happened in the past, you had never been down at all. Since it’s going to be hard to defend for 5 days, why not seize this chance to launch an attack?”
