The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 121
Chapter 121: Portal
Wang Hao sucked a deep breath as he did not expect the Underworld to start their assault this early. He thought that with the condition of the dragonspawn that he saw, the invasion might happen a week from now.
But it seemed like the other side was already impatient.
Since he was able to identify the unique energy in the dragonspawn as something related to the Underworld, Wang Hao realized the real use of the dragon.
Her use was as a portal for the beings in the Underworld to pass through.
When he realized this scheme when he arrived at the Solstice Kingdom, Wang Hao knew that the dragonspawn that appeared were just used to weaken the defenses of the Solstice Kingdom.
As for how the Underworld actually conduct their attacks, Wang Hao had no idea since those planets that end up in their control had no way to tell what happened. As for the planets that managed to repel the invasion, Yama himself wipes out their memories of the attack.
This may be shameless, but it does not violate the agreement made by the Tenth Stage powerhouses. This then made everyone in the Plante Thrae to be not aware of the danger the dragon had brought.
If they had been aware of it, all the powerhouses of this planet could have personally slain the dragon already.
While Wang Hao and Ling Tian were now busy calming down their companions, they heard a voice echoing out the whole Kingdom. The speaker was arrogant, and he seemed to have no regard for anyone in the Kingdom. His boisterous voice seemed to have come inside the castle.
“Hahahaha! Isn’t this magnificent! This is the ‘Underworld Supressing Formation’! This formation was specifically designed to suppress the strength of anyone from Fifth Stage and below to be at the peak of First Stage only!”
The arrogant-sounding words of this man confirmed Wang Hao’s suspicion about the formation.
“But if this formation can only at most suppress those at the Fifth Stage, then Xiao Ya can easily destroy this formation!”
But before Wang Hao could feel relieved, he remembered one thing.
“F**k! According to their agreement, only those below the Sixth Stage can participate in the territory expansion. That means even Xiao Ya cannot help us now!”
Wang Hao continued to curse as he realized that the ‘Underworld Supressing Formation’ was an insidious tactic used by the invaders from the Underworld.
No matter how strong the practitioners in the planet is, all their strengths will regress on the First Stage. But Wang Hao also knew that those from the Underworld who will enter the formation will also have their strength at the First Stage.
As such, it will not be a battle of quality, but quantity.
With the Underworld boasting large amounts of members, they can just flood the Solstice Kingdom with a lot of them. Even the most talented practitioner at the First Stage can only fight against Second Stage Practitioners.
A massive amount of First Stage invaders will easily decimate them.
Wang Hao had to also praise the location chosen by the Underworld to invade. The Solstice Kingdom has the longest length of night in the Planet Thrae. Such environment was suitable for them.
From what he can see, their plan seems to fully occupy the Solstice Kingdom first. Further expansion shall commence after that.
Wang Hao then heard the arrogant speaker saying more things.
“I am talking to all of you because I am a benevolent person. Why am I benevolent? Because right now, I advise you all to evacuate immediately! Now that we had successfully deployed the formation, the 13th Battalion shall start their march to your Kingdom!”
“13th Battalion?” From hearing this, Wang Hao realized that an army was now heading straight for the Kingdom!
“As for their numbers….” The speaker lingered his words for a while. “They are at least 100,000!”
“One hundred…..thousand?” Tang Ya and the Generals were shocked silly by this information.
How could they not be? That means 100,000 experienced First Stage Soldiers will be attacking the Solstice Kingdom! Compared to the amount of practitioners who can fight in the Solstice Kingdom, the invaders seem like an unstoppable force already.
“Well then…. I have you warned all enough. As for the time of the attack, it will be surprise. Good luck to all of you surviving!!!” The voice disappeared as the whole Kingdom was in an absolute silence.
What happened next was chaos.
“Let us leave!!!”
Countless residents immediately gathered their things as they tried to evacuate the Kingdom. But to their chagrin, the gates of the Kingdom were locked.
“Please, let us leave! We do not want to die!!!”
The desperate residents gathered round the soldiers, desperately pleading for them to unlock the gates. But the guards held steadfast while saying,
“We need to wait for the King’s commandment to open the gates. As of now we need to wait for his command.”
“F**k that! That useless king is the one who brought us here! If he just killed that b***h, none of this would have happened! Why should we listen to him now? He’s clearly out of his mind!”
“Yes! Why should we listen to him?”
“Let us leave!”
“Let us leave!”
All around the Kingdom, countless people fought with the guards for their right to live. They fought with such ferocity that even the rebels shivered in fear.
“If the King was not a fool…..”
Inside the castle.
The foolish king that everyone was cursing now could only watch in horror as his beloved wife’s body started to form a portal. If one looked deeply inside it, one could see a dark scenery.
The King realized that his wife was now the portal that leads to the Underworld. He clutched his head as he thought about all his decisions in the past.
“Is this all worth it?”
But instead of getting worried now, Wang Hao had an expectant grin on his face. Ling Tian was about to scold Wang Hao when he also had the same realization as him.
“What are you guys thinking about? We are all clearly in trouble here!” Tang Ya anxiously said.
“Hehehe, if all of us were now at the First Stage, then all those who guard Fang Yu were at the First Stage too! This means rescuing her is a piece of cake!”
“Sigh, I also know about that.” Tang Ya replied monotonously. “What I worry about now was that invasion. What are we going to do about it?”
“Easy. It’s obvious that they are using the dragon as the portal for their army to arrive. As such, we can just seal the portal.” Ling Tian said calmly.
“Seal the portal? Can we even do that? Isn’t killing the dragon the better way?” Mimi inquired. She peered at Wang Hao suspiciously as she said,
“Aren’t you the temporary leader of the Raiders? Shouldn’t you help on killing the dragon instead?”
“Well….” Wang Hao sighed as he realized that he had to explain his plan to his companions already.
“It’s like this……”
