Chapter 286: The Situation Is Different
Spiral Force and Hidden Force Overlay needed even more granular control than what Fei learned last night. There was more knowledge to be acquired, and the techniques themselves required highly talented and powerful warriors. But since Fei learned the granular control from Emperor Yassin’s first notes, this one wasn’t too difficult to understand.
The night was long, and Fei was mesmerized by the notes. He was studying the notes on Spiral Force Techniques and Hidden Force Overlay Techniques as if he was a man who was dying of thirst in the desert and suddenly saw a clear lake.
Time passed by fast.
When the sun was almost up, Fei finally stopped learning about the new techniques. He started to use the magic arrays around the battlefield and the methods in the purple scroll to train his spiritual power.
When the sun finally came up, Fei completed his training for the night. This was the longest night training that he did. Before, Fei would return to the campsite of Chambord before dawn. But he was really in the zone today, and he couldn’t stop himself.
After he switched back to Assassin Mode, Fei dashed towards the camp area. Although the sun was ready up, Fei was still able to get through all the checkpoints undiscovered.
When he got back to Chambord’s campsite, people on the roster who would be competing today had put on their armors and got on their horses. They were all waiting for their king to command them; they were ready to go to the competition and win the supreme glory for the kingdom.
When Fei got dressed in the blue king robe, put on the golden crown that had a ruby in it, and grabbed the king scepter in his hand, the entire campsite almost collapsed due to the shouts and cheers after Fei walked out of the tent.
Every soldier’s blood was boiling. They stared at and worshipped their invincible king; they felt the confidence as they looked at their king’s smile. They felt like their king was a god of war who was wearing the bright sun on his back. Every soldier swore with their soul –
“I’m willing to battle to the death for his majesty!”
“Hail His Majesty!”
“Hail the King!”
The bright and sharp weapons reflected the chilliness of the winter and the light of the sun, and murderous spirits flowed in the blood of the soldiers. What was standing by Fei’s side was an invincible legion in the making. They worshipped their young king, and they were afraid of nothing!
Their blade would be swung for the king!
Their blood would be spilled for the king!
Fei was moved by what he was seeing as well. He raised his king scepter into the air, and he said after all of the soldiers around him quieted down: “Victory!”
“Victory!” All of the soldiers repeated after him, and it was as loud as thunder.
“Glory represents my life!” Fei shouted as he jumped onto the back of [Black Tornado].
“Glory represents my life!” The soldiers grabbed the reins and raised their weapons.
Fei commanded as [Black Tornado] roared and walked out of the campsite.
[Black Tornado]’s strange roar that was comparable to the roar of the dragon resonated in the camp area. All these days, [Black Tornado] had been consuming a lot of [Hulk Potion]. Under the potion, its body had been developing continuously. Now, the black dog was about three meters tall when it was on its all fours, and it looked magnificent. Its black fur had a blue light to it, and it ran like a tiger. From its appearance, it would be hard for people to associate it with a dog; [Black Tornado] was more like a demon beast.
Behind Fei, Pierce and Drogba held the flag with the two-headed dog as well as the ax and sword in the background.
Both strongmen were more than two meters tall, and their muscles were huge as well; they were like two small mountains. The level 4 Roaring Flame Beasts that they were riding on all had four clouds of fire-like magic elements around their hooves, and murderous spirits also flashed through their eyes regularly.
As trophies that were seized from the Chishui Kingdom, Angela cared a lot for them. After all of the nourishment, they finally returned to their natural state and lived up to their name – “vicious mounts”.
Level 4 demon beasts with demon beasts like strongmen on them; it was terrifying!
Behind the two men, there were Torres, Cech, Elena, and other warriors of Chambord. They were also riding level 4 Roaring Flame Beasts, and they protected a magic carriage that was being pulled by handsome horses. In it, there was Angela, Emma, and eight other pretty girls – the eight girls who Fei decided to protect. Actually, the eight girls had already gotten used to the life at Chambord’s campsite.
Behind them, there were fifty soldiers of Chambord who were ready.
They were also riding level 4 Roaring Flame Beasts. As they passed through the streets, the ferocious atmosphere made other people back off sub-consciously. It felt like there were fifty blood-thirsty monsters, and they were not humans; it was too pressing.
This was the formal team who was going to participate in the competition.
The former number one warrior of Chambord – Lampard was guarding the campsite with the rest of the soldiers and waiting for Chambord’s victory.
The team walked towards the field in the center of the camp area under the respectful stare of everyone.
“God, is this Chambord’s team? Powerful! Too Powerful!”
“Huh, I didn’t expect this! I didn’t expect Chambord to have so many master warriors and high-quality armors and equipment. Do you see their mounts? They are the legendary number one vicious mount – Roaring Flame Beasts! They are the best mounts for cavalries. They are fast and are able to carry a lot of weights. Also, they are able to attack on their own. They are the dream mounts, and a lot of noble knights couldn’t even get their hands on one……”
“Damn! I thought we only need to look out for the king of Chambord! I thought we had a chance! Damn, we are all wrong!”
“Hahaha, interesting! This year’s competition is interesting! Looks like the ten level 1 affiliated kingdoms have competition! Chambord could break through and disrupt the regular flow!”
“Not sure if Chambord could perform a miracle and become the winner of the Kingdom Ranking Matches.”
“That is not guaranteed. Maybe the king of Chambord has a chance on his own; he defeated Executive Knights and is powerful. But when it comes down to group matches, it would be hard to say. After all, the ten level 1 affiliated kingdoms have years of accumulations. They couldn’t be compared to a young force……”
“Hehe, just wait and see. Things aren’t that simple. The tall tree in a forest would be taken down by wind first. Chambord had been in the news lately for too much. They exposed a lot of their strength, and this is their weakness. Do they want to make things different? The old forces will teach them a lesson!”
As the team from Chambord proceeded towards the central field, chatters and murmured got louder and louder.
In the central field in the camp area.
244 affiliated kingdoms and more than twenty thousand people including the kings, princes, and master warriors……
Numerous flags fluttered in the cold wind under the bright sun, and war horses created “white clouds” in front of them as they breathed heavily. All of Zenit’s elites were in the central field.
More than twenty thousand elite soldiers packed the central field in 244 formations of different sizes.
Although Fei got famous, Chambord was still a level 6 affiliated kingdom after all. Therefore, Chambord’s location was on the very edge, and people of Chambord could only vaguely see the central stage that was more than twenty meters tall and thousands of meters away.
The stage was made from hundred-year-old trees that were cut from Moro Mountains. It was truly magnificent.
The bottom floor of the stage was a square space with a hundred meters on each side. Then, there were eight more floors on top of the first floor with two sets of stairs on each side. According to the usual tradition, Emperor Yassin would appear on the highest floor of the stage. He would then inspect the elite soldiers of the kingdoms and make sacrifices to the gods with the help of the priests from Holy Church. The emperor would use a small saber and kill three white bulls that were three years old. The hearts of the bulls would be taken out, and the priests from the Holy Church would try to foresee the next three years of the empire.
This sacrifice procedure was a vital part of the competition, and it represented something important.
However, the situation was different this year.
