Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 1239
Attack the Cities and Seize the Lands (1)
The turbulent wind swept through the tower, heralding a rising storm in the mountains. This was the situation the outer region had fallen into. The atmosphere in various cities were tense. Every one of the experts was standing in their assigned position, combat-ready to face the attack of Fragrant Sky City. There were also some cities that didn’t make any preparations or even allied with the other cities. It had to be said that the likes of these city lords did have a very optimistic view. They still firmly believed that Jiang Chen would never dare launch a large-scale attack in the outer region. Without a doubt, city lords with such optimistic beliefs were more arrogant than Jiang Chen.
Unfortunately, this bunch of people knew too little about Jiang Chen and his methods. Any one of them who had a certain understanding about Jiang Chen would’ve already made the smartest decision by surrendering to Fragrant Sky City, or else they were only going to face their death.
In Fragrant Sky City, all the experts who had went into seclusion had gone out three days later, except for Big Yellow. He was still refining the soul essence, a treasure left by a Golden Immortal demonic devil, it made his refinement harder than the others. Therefore, more time was needed to complete the refinement.
There was a huge square outside the prefecture. All the experts of Fragrant Sky City were standing opposite of Jiang Chen. Each and every one of them seemed incomparably stirred, especially Chen Hui and Li Si. There was no way that they wouldn’t because their cultivation had already improved a lot after getting Jiang Chen’s reward, advancing from the peak of early Divine Immortal realm to the mid Divine Immortal realm, which was something that they hadn’t dared dream of.
One should know that every advancement in the Divine Immortal stage was incomparably difficult. Furthermore, the both of them had already touched the bottleneck of their cultivation realm, making it even harder for them to break through. Jiang Chen however easily helped them break past this barrier. So they now rejoiced the wise decision that they made early on.
Being mid Divine Immortal experts, it meant that they were now qualified to be lord of the city. Of course, that would only happen in the past. Now that Jiang Chen had come to Evil Abyss, mid Divine Immortal experts no longer had the ruling power. Even city lords like Lu Sheng had to surrender to Jiang Chen and become his slave, or else death would be his only option.
Not just them, Ah Da and Ah Er had also advanced to the mid Divine Immortal realm. The two of them possessed incredible devil nature just like the demonic devils of the Evil Clan. So, this made the Evil Abyss the ideal place for them to cultivate. Plus, both of their minds were interlinked, making their speed of advancement incredibly fast when they cultivate together. Therefore, after refining Jiang Chen’s Spiritual Spring, they successfully advanced, reaching the mid Divine Immortal realm.
Jiang Chen was quite concerned for development of these two devils because they were different from those ordinary demonic devils. Their degree of cooperation was flawless. Now that they had advanced to the mid Divine Immortal realm, they were strong enough to fight a late Divine Immortal opponent. They were also one of Jiang Chen’s most important source of strength at the present time.
Apart from them, Yan Qingcheng and Huang Ying’s cultivation had also improved by leaps and bounds, from early Heaven Immortal realm to the peak of late Heaven Immortal realm. Such speed really exhilarated them, Yan Qingcheng in particular. Her eyes were brimming with infatuation as she looked at Jiang Chen.
To the two girls, it was an incredibly lucky thing for them to meet Jiang Chen in a place like Evil Abyss. There was no question about it. If it wasn’t for Jiang Chen, they weren’t sure what they would be facing right now. They would’ve probably been tortured and humiliated instead of achieving their current cultivation base.
Lu Sheng and the others were also very excited. Although they hadn’t gotten anything from Jiang Chen yet, they were convinced by every one of their result. To those who wanted to survive well in Evil Abyss, there was nothing that they would anticipate more other than getting stronger.
So currently, all of them were filled with anticipation. As Jiang Chen had stated clearly, as long as they worked hard for him and contributed for the city, they naturally wouldn’t be excluded from the reward-giving moment.
Just as this moment, a thunderous roar sounded from the prefecture. Then all of a sudden, a golden pillar shot up to the sky. Big Yellow emerged in the sky. The current Big Yellow looked extremely divine and the illusion of a dragon-horse could be observed from his appearance.
“Good, Big Yellow has already advanced to the early Divine Immortal realm, which drastically increases our overall strength.”
Jiang Chen couldn’t help feeling delighted upon seeing Big Yellow’s successful breakthrough to the early Divine Immortal realm. He knew Big Yellow’s terror very well. Despite being merely an early Divine Immortal divine beast, if Big Yellow unleashed his divine power, it was a piece of cake for him to kill a mid Divine Immortal opponent. Plus, he was also capable of fighting even a late Divine Immortal opponent.
“It’s so divine. Sure enough, this dog isn’t as simple as he looks. In reality, his body possesses some very powerful bloodline.”
“Our forces are getting stronger and stronger. With our present strength, we are enough to sweep across the entire outer region unhindered.”
Big Yellow’s advancement had brought the crowd’s morale to a new level. As every one of them on the scene were strong cultivators, they could naturally discern Big Yellow’s terrifying power. They had defended the prefecture alongside Big Yellow back when the three city lords came to attack them. So they knew very well how scary this dog was.
Lu Sheng and the others had an even deeper impression of Big Yellow. Although they hadn’t fought with Big Yellow yet, this dog was able to hold them for two days using only a grand formation. The memory of this was still as recent as yesterday’s.
After two consecutive advancement, the Qi radiating from Big Yellow shivered the soul of those mid Divine Immortal allies. They were afraid that none of them would have the courage to engage in a fight with Big Yellow.
Big Yellow flew one round to show off himself, then came to Jiang Chen’s side.
Jiang Chen patted Big Yellow’s head and praised.
“Tell me, when is the war starting?”
Big Yellow’s Qi fluctuated. He was losing control over his surging impulses.
“Master, three days have already passed, but not a single city lord has come to surrender. What should we do now?” asked Lu Sheng.
“What are the responses of those cities?” asked Jiang Chen.
As the present situation was within his calculation, there was nothing he should be surprised about.
“Master, your name and Fragrant Sky City had already been spread out, but many cities have been forming alliances, seemingly in preparation to fight master. However, there were also a few of them that didn’t do anything. They didn’t join the others nor increased their defences as they have already concluded that master won’t dare to launch a large-scale invasion in the outer region.”
Lu Sheng briefly explained the status in the outer region. He wasn’t idle during these past three days and he didn’t dare to show any sign of neglect to the task given by Jiang Chen. Although no one came to surrender to them, he managed to gather intelligence from those cities.
“What the f*ck! How dare they for not putting us in their eyes? That’s unforgivable. Tell Master Dog which cities are they from? Master Dog will personally launch a massacre in those cities, leaving no survivors,” said Big Yellow angrily.
