“Ray! Thank you!”
After walking for a while, Rafinia’s soft voice came over.
The maiden knights are not fools either, knowing that without Leylin, they would really be buried in the mouth of the ogre this time. This kind of death is obviously not acceptable to her, and now she is a little scared when she thinks about it.
All adventure novels are deceitful. There are no heroic heroes and beautiful princesses. Instead, there are more thieves, thieves, and ogres who eat living people!
“So…when the fantasy is broken…will you continue your so-called adventure?”
Leylin asked curiously.
“Of course, this is my knight’s way!!!” The girl knight’s voice was full of firmness: “As long as I can continue to persevere, the evil will one day be wiped out by my hands… The world will be restored in my hands!”
“…” Leylin rolled his eyes speechlessly, this idiot roadblock had no tendency to wake up.
“What’s your expression like?”
“No, I was just thinking, you are a good fit to be a paladin of the God of Justice! Really!!!”
Fortunately, the **** of luck finally favored Leylin and the others this time, allowing this small motorcade to safely drive out of the ogre-infested area.
Otherwise, if Leylin paid himself, once surrounded by ogres, he would have to leave everyone behind and break through alone.
And everyone except him, including the war marnicks, will eventually become the rations and jerky of the ogres.
“Is the leader dead and in chaos?”
On the way, they also sporadically met a few lost caravan members, and even some small thieves and the like.
Unfortunately, this time, even Rafiniya has learned to harden her heart, and the high-level knight girl who has recovered a little of her strength will not need to spend any effort to deal with these people.
Until this day, a small city with black walls appeared in front of Leylin.
“Here we are, Darkwood Castle. After this is the central Great Plains of Dumbraith. It is also the king’s direct territory…”
After seeing the city, Rafiniya let out a cheer, and Hera and Alani showed relieved smiles.
Although this long journey is only halfway through, the hardships and shocks they have received are enough for them to fear for the future.
“Stop! Park Check!”
At the gate of the city, Leylin’s team of adventurers dressed in unusual clothes was immediately stopped by the guards.
“Huh? Are these guards good? And are they professional soldiers who have seen blood?”
Leylin watched Hera go up to negotiate, but his brows were slightly wrinkled.
In his experience, of course it can be seen. The strength of the guards here is generally high, and it may even be a professional legion. Not at all comparable to the previous ones.
Even, in the dark, he could vaguely feel that dozens of elite archers had aimed at this place, which made him feel a little dangerous.
“To give me a sense of danger, these archers must at least be equipped with equipment such as [Breaking Magic Arrows], they are really rich…”
Leylin glanced vaguely at the city wall, then looked at Hera and the others as if nothing had happened.
After examining the certificates of their mercenaries and nobles, a middle-aged soldier who was obviously a small leader came over.
“There has been a vicious incident in Dark Forest Castle recently. If you are all right, don’t stay too long!”
“Thank you for your kindness. Sir, is that an ogre?”
There was a hint of curiosity in Hera’s eyes.
“What are ogres? Compared to real devils, they are far from…” The middle-aged soldier sneered, and then stopped talking.
Only when Leylin passed a few mercenaries did he use a warning tone: “Don’t cause trouble after entering, otherwise…”
The threatening words immediately made Rafinia furious. But Leylin and Old Bam had seen this kind of situation a lot. They just shrugged their shoulders. It was hard to say whether they heard it or not.
The military leader didn’t care about Rafiniya, and there seemed to be a hint of disappointment in his eyes. He waved his hand: “Let’s go!”
“The strength of this kind of legion is no worse than the previous ogre tribe…”
Leylin lowered his head. The light in his eyes kept flickering.
“It seems that national forces and legions are the mainstream of ordinary human beings in the world of gods. There is no way to compare the previous kind of mercenary group…”
In them, Leylin finally saw that kind of temperament, the sword is like a forest, the spear is like a thorn, and maybe there is even the support of a mage and a priest. Even the middle-ranking officer just now had an aura that was very close to that of a high-ranking fighter, especially since the opponent had clearly experienced the test of the battlefield, and that kind of suffocating aura that had seen blood was unmatched by ordinary mercenaries.
“It’s just, from what the other party said just now, it’s obvious that something happened here…”
After entering the city, the cold streets and the strict vigilance immediately made Leylin frown.
“We’re going to rest here for a while, maybe buy a carriage and recruit a few mercenaries…”
After waiting for a hotel that was still open, Hera said to Leylin and the others with a look of exhaustion on her face.
“Well, we do need a new carriage!” Rafiniya of course agreed with this suggestion, and she finally arrived at a human city, and she couldn’t wait to take a good rest.
For a noble lady, there is nothing more unbearable than filth and filth, and unfortunately, these are never lacking in the journey, especially for mercenaries.
Poor Rafinia wasn’t tortured and mad, she was a knight’s tough will.
Bam agrees, too, and can’t wait to trade his hoarded ogre ears for a commission to buy a new batch of rum along the way.
“Alright, we’ll meet here in three days!”
Leylin nodded irrevocably. He was also curious about what happened at Dark Forest Castle.
“Ray, wait! Your friend needs your help! My injury needs the priest’s treatment…”
When it was time to part, Old Bam grabbed Leylin directly, his eyes watering with tears.
Seeing the other party like this, Leylin could only shrug his shoulders and bring old Bam with his broken leg. Anyway, it worships the **** of warriors, and the temple is not far from the mercenary guild. .
“Magic [Healing Slander]!”
Warrior Temple, the divine light shone down on a priest’s hand, and the wound on Bam’s thigh quickly recovered, and even a layer of new tender flesh grew.
“The treatment costs 5 gold crores!”
The priest’s face is holy, and the cost of treatment has not been reduced in the slightest.
Using magic to heal the wounds of believers, and get rewards by charging fees, is the common operation method of almost most temples.
Gods also need wealth to build magnificent temples, and more importantly, to attract believers with more favorable conditions.
Old Bam, who was usually very stingy, paid the bill very happily at this time, and didn’t even dare to take any advantage. Only after leaving the temple did the other party look regretful.
“If it weren’t for our employers to be leaving these days, old Bam would rather go to a doctor or a pharmacist. Damn, five kronos, that’s how many bottles of rum can be exchanged… oh my **** On, old Bam didn’t mean it…”
Old Bam kept mumbling, “No way! This must be added to our employer’s commission! You’ll support me, won’t you, Ray?”
Leylin didn’t hear it, and walked into the gate of the mercenary guild with old Bam.
Old Bam hurriedly went to exchange for Ogre Ears to recover the loss, while Leylin came to the quest hall.
The area of the hall here is much smaller than that of Aemon City, and there are sparse mercenaries sitting in it, both in quantity and quality.
This abnormal atmosphere was explained when Leylin saw the task board.
“The advanced task is to track down the devil’s followers! This task is extremely dangerous, please think carefully before choosing!”
“A high-level mission to investigate the Cthulhu Ritual at Lord Volkdo’s House!”
“A high-level mission to investigate the cause of Baron Faerûn’s death…”
There are many high-level tasks hanging in a row, which is very spectacular, but unfortunately very few mercenaries dare to accept them.
“Interesting, the devil?”
A smile suddenly appeared on the corner of Leylin’s mouth. He thought of the abnormal deployment of the army and the worried look on the middle-ranking officer’s face. Everything came to an end.
It turns out that the reason why the entire Dark Forest Castle is a little abnormal is actually the reason for the activities of the devil’s believers.
This kind of difficult task has always been a matter of the temple and the national army. It is no wonder that these mercenaries are lacking in interest.
However, the fact that they were not interested did not mean that Leylin was not interested.
Actually, Leylin had always been very curious about the **** and the devil in this world.
Although Belusebabu’s memory has made him no less aware of the devil than the digital archdukes of devils, theory and practice are always two different things.
“According to the other party’s memory, the entire **** has a total of nine floors, which are ruled by their respective lords, and there are also several public areas… and being able to break through the plane restrictions and come to the main material world to spread belief… This must at least be Something that can only be done by a **** lord of the same level as it…”
The gluttonous king Beluce Babu was definitely the power of a regular wizard in his heyday, at least comparable to the weaker gods in the world of gods.
It’s no wonder that just finding some traces made the whole city feel like a big enemy.
The scene of the projection of the Soul Seed appeared in front of Leylin again.
“I don’t know how the little guy said it now? After all, he accepted the power of my soul seed. If he can adapt, his current strength should be good…” (To be continued. )
