Chapter 771: Assassination
Translator: Shiraishi Editor: TheAlliance
After returning, Id better persuade the clansmen. Back then, the Merlin Family had a genius that led the family out of difficult times to slowly recover, but that genius cant compare to the current Mafa Merlin. The rise and glory of the Merlin Family should happen in the near future.
Sir Merlin is already a powerhouse that can stand on his own. No one can stop it, so it might be better to befriend him. It would be in our best interests if the grievances between the Merlin Family and the Watson Family could be eased up or laid to rest.
I dont dare to imagine what would happen if we keep this hostility against the Merlin Family. After all, Mafa Merlin isnt exactly a kind person.
Zeuss secretly made up his mind. For the sake of the Watson Family, he would try to befriend Mafa Merlin. This already demanded immediate action.
The others were also shocked after seeing Lin Yun walk out It wasnt just Weiss and Zeuss. The powerhouses among the Dark Elves, Ash Beastmen, and Firerock Dwarves were all unable to see through Lin Yuns strength. They could only tell that those vast and profound mana fluctuations felt incredibly powerful.
Some people who had still been a bit discontent about the three major races swearing allegiance to someone who had only just advanced to the Archmage realm were now following along cheerfully.
They could easily foresee that in the near future, this person they swore allegiance to would become a Heaven Rank powerhouse!
No one doubted this.
The leaders of the three major races stepped forward to greet him.
Lin Yun nodded and walked towards the crystal ship wheel. He reached out and touched it, and in an instant, the entire Captains Cabin became transparent. The surrounding walls disappeared and the surroundings of the Intrepid could be seen.
They were still in the dark, endless void.
"We should be there soon. Get ready! Opening the planar barrier wont be easy, and our destination wont be certain. There might be some deviations, so itd be best for all of you to be prepared."
The shadow of a world could be seen appearing on the outside. This ball-sized shadow rapidly expanded until it filled half the void.
The Intrepid fiercely collided against that shadow and started violently shaking as it opened up a spatial tear.
The Intrepid slipped into that tear and rushed through it to enter that world.
Raging Flame Plane, Horn of Fertility.
The area with the most abundant resources in the Raging Flame Plane, the most peaceful region in the past. This place was now echoing with blades clashing, spells exploding, and miserable yelling.
Thorne Merlin was wiping sweat and some random bloodstain off his forehead as he fiercely stared at the battlefield in the distance.
The Merlin Family, the Watson Family, and the Black Tower were occupying this place, and they were being repeatedly attacked by countless Raging Flame Beastmen.
A Raging Flame Beastman holding an axe with a dozen cracks on the blade ruthlessly slashed down on a human warriors shoulder. The hard armor of the human warrior didnt seem to be effective, and in an instant, he was cut in half by that broken axe, causing his blood to spurt out like a fountain.
In the distance, a mage of the Merlin Family loudly chanted an incantation, and a Fire Dragon appeared in front of his body before ruthlessly charging into that axe-wielding Raging Flame Beastman. The flames submerged that swaggering Beastman, and it only took a few seconds before he was burnt to ashes.
On another side, a Raging Flame Beastman Warlocks eyes turned red and his hands kept dancing in front of his body as a green, poisonous Fireball ruthlessly struck that mage of the Merlin Family. The mage was exhausted after just casting a Fire Dragon so he didnt have time to defend himself, and his head was burnt to ashes by this poison.
The chaotic and bloody battlefield was at its fiercest during the warriors collisions. The bloody smell filled the air, and limbs kept flying out. A humans head was chopped off by a Raging Flame Beastman, but it was immediately followed by a greatsword piercing the Beastmans heart.
Exhaustion could be seen in Thorne Merlins eyes. A few months ago, when he saw the fierce warriors of the Merlin Family meet with danger, he would still be able to help out. But now, he was already powerless. Even if they were only a few hundred meters away, he could only stare blankly and watch them die.
On a bloody battlefield where lives kept being traded, the impact of an exhausted 5th Rank Sword Saint was already minimal.
Thorne Merlin was panting roughly and had an unsightly expression. Its been almost half a year. When will this battle end? The counterattack of the Raging Flame Beastmen is getting more and more intense. Damnit, we shouldnt have attacked the Horn of Fertility! The losses are too great.
That damned Watson Family, didnt they say that the Horn of Fertility only had a third of the Raging Flame Beastmen and that it would be very easy? Then why have we met such a fierce counterattack?
The Fireblade Tribe, as the most powerful branch of the Raging Flame Beastmen, hadnt been attacked for so many years. How could it be that weak? The Horn of Fertility was the most flourishing region of the Raging Flame Plane, how could they give up on it?
Damn, from the small-scale retaliation to this large-scale war like an inescapable quagmire, the Merlin Family cant withdraw and retreat. Even giving up on the Horn of Fertility is impossible. If we dont repel those ugly Raging Flame Beastmen, the foundation of the Merlin Family in the Raging Flame Plane will be in danger.
The Watson Family and the Black Tower Two f*cking disgusting rats, they should just die!
Thorne Merlin fiercely cursed inwardly. After resting for a bit, he felt the power within his body recovering. As more people fell in the bloody battlefield and the Raging Flame Beastmen gained momentum, Thorne raised his greatsword, ready to dash in.
At this moment, Thorne saw a neatly clothed shadow coming from the back and his face became quite nasty.
"Green Watson, why did you come!"
Disdain and arrogance could be seen on Green Watsons face. He gently arranged his collar while coldly glancing at Thorne.
"Thorne Merlin, we discussed with the Black Tower and decided to take over your defensive line. There is a mission for you."
Thorne Merlin immediately became angry.
"What discussion? I am the commander of the Merlin Family, so how come I didnt know about it? Are you planning on throwing away the lives of the Merlin Family members?"
These damned malicious b*stards! These days, our Familys casualties are disastrous, and any dangerous assignment is given to the Merlin Family! They only take care of the less dangerous missions themselves.
Last time, they made our Merlin Family sneak attack a Raging Flame Beastman stronghold, saying some stuff pleasant to the ears, such as the other side only having five hundred defenders. But the fools of the Black Tower and Watson Family didnt mention that these were elites of the Raging Flame Beastman Tribe!
Damnit, those had been hundreds of Raging Flame Beastman Warlocks! Were Beastman Arch-Warlocks that easy to deal with?
They concealed the fact that the other side had Arch-Warlocks, and this caused us huge losses. Over eighty Great Mages and twenty High Mages died. Even an Archmage fell
And last time, they said that theyd obtained some precious information and found the supply unit of the Raging Flame Beastmen. But how could the supplies not have an escort? Those morons actually coerced us into going to destroy the Raging Flame Beastmens supply unit.
F*ck, there were three Arch-Warlocks, the report was wrong and there had been three Arch-Warlocks escorting the supplies. If I hadnt been perceptive, that group would have been wiped out. Fortunately, I felt something was wrong and went to help. Otherwise, they wouldnt have been able to flee.
Fifty children of the Merlin Family, Great Mages and High Mages Over three hundred warriors, they all fell there. Those damned bastards, why arent they going themselves?
Sh*t, those b*stards of the Black Tower and Watson Family are persecuting us because the Merlin Family is the weakest of the three forces in the Raging Flame Plane.
Thorne secretly gnashed his teeth, wishing he could punch Green Watsons face. That damn b*stard. I, as the commander of the Merlin Family, am personally fighting, yet his clothes are so tidy. He probably hasnt fought for a long time!
Green coldly looked at Thorne, disdain flashing in his eyes.
"Thorne, I didnt come to discuss with you. We found the tracks of Hoppet! This is an extremely rare opportunity. Our Watson Family and the Black Tower need to stand at the front line and attract the attention of those stupid Beastmen. Your mission is to assassinate Hoppet!"
Truly stupid. Of the three major forces, the Merlin Family is the weakest. Just look at that, their commander is nothing more than a 5th Rank Sword Saint, yet they still think of sharing the benefits? If you werent useful for these menial tasks, I would have already kicked you out.
Dont blame our Watson Family for being insensitive if you dare to refuse.
Green wasnt bothering to hide the disdain on his face as he coldly looked at Thorne Merlin
Thornes expression suddenly changed when he heard that name. His face turned gloomy and dark.
How could he not know who Hoppet was? This was the leader of the opposing Raging Flame Beastmen, the Tribal Chief of the Fireblade Tribe!
The Fireblade Tribe was the most powerful tribe of the northern part of the Raging Flame Plane not only because of the number of Beastmen warriors, and Warlocks they had. The most important reason was their Tribal Chief, Hoppet.
