Chapter 214: Made a Clean Sweep
Translator: KurazyTolanzuraytor Editor: Lucas
As he thought up to this point, Duan Ling Tian's mood surged.
However, he didn't rush to refine a Dragon Blood Pill, as the temporary tent he was in didn't have much extra space.
He couldn't go out of the tent and refine, right?
Shaking his head, Duan Ling Tian calmed down his mood before falling into deep sleep.
The sky would turn bright in a few more hours, and at that time, the huge army of a 100,000 would directly charge at Southern Barbaric City. As the strategist of this battle, Duan Ling Tian needed to recuperate and store up energy.
The sky hadn't even completely brightened when the huge army of 100,000 had already departed in a formidable array.
Duan Ling Tian, Nie Fen, and He Wei An galloped their horses at the front most, and before long, they arrived beside the moat outside of Southern Barbaric City.
Under Duan Ling Tian's orders, the huge army of 100,000 put down the scarecrows and bamboo raft parts that they had brought along with them onto the ground....
The bamboo rafts took shape, and the pile of scarecrows were pulled onto half of the bamboo rafts.
Within the morning mist, the huge army of 100,000 followed along the moat as they launched a surprise attack.
"Release the arrows!" Following Duan Ling Tian's order, the soldiers pulled back their heavy bows. Countless arrows whistled out to kill the group of Southern Barbaric City guard soldiers atop the city walls before they could react.
Meanwhile, beacons of fire rose from all directions within Southern Barbaric City, and they started their counter attack!
The Crimson Sky Kingdom's huge army of 100,000 continued forward.
However, before the huge army of 100,000, there was a dense amount of 'grass boats' opening the way for them.
Within the morning mist, the soldiers atop the walls of the Southern Barbaric City could only vaguely seem some silhouettes, so countless arrows whistled out to descend onto the scarecrows.
The Crimson Sky Kingdom's huge army of 100,000 was safe and sound!
"Miraculous, miraculous!" Including He Wei An and Nie Fen, all the Star Mastermind Department students couldn't resist sighing.
This was precisely the strategy of 'to borrow arrows with thatched boats'!
Only when they really saw this scene occur did they realize how terrifying the violet-clothed youth that stood beside them was.
Annihilating a strong enemy like it was nothing!
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Just when the Southern Barbaric City's defending troops thought the Crimson Sky Kingdom's army of 100,000 was out of arrows, another wave of arrows whistles out, killing the Southern Barbaric City soldiers that were on the wall.
"How could this be possible?!"
"How could they possibly have so many arrows?!"
"No! This isn't real!"
As time passed, the defending troops of Southern Barbaric City were utterly confused, even to the extent that no one dared probe out from the city's wall.
"Success!" He Wei An cheered in excitement.
"Commander Nie, please lead the Crimson Wyrm Army to take opportunity of the chaos and sneak into the enemy's campsite...As for us, we will cooperate with you and act in coordination from the inside and the outside, and give them an attack from both the front and the rear!" Duan Ling Tian looked at Nie Fen and he lightly nodded.
In the presence of outsiders, he didn't call Nie Fen Big Brother Nie.
"OK! After this battle ends, we'll drink to our hearts' content!" Nie Fen laughed heartily as he led his Crimson Wyrm Army to leap over the wall and enter Southern Barbaric City while the defending troops of the Southern Barbaric City had no precautions in place.
Sneaking along an unknown path!
And then a 'removing the firewood from under the pot!'
This was precisely Duan Ling Tian's tactic of interlinking three strategies.
Meanwhile, the nearly 90,000 officers of the border army and the group of Paladin Academy students were still concealed behind the 'grass boats;' they were concealed within the morning mist.
As long as the there was someone who probed out of Southern Barbaric City's wall, they would be directly shot and killed! And it was precisely because of this reason that the Crimson Wyrm Army was able to easily sneak into the Southern Barbaric City.
"Haha...I, He Wei An, have been in the army for so many years, but it's still the first time I've fought such a satisfying battle!" He Wei An had an excited expression as he looked at Duan Ling Tian, and his eyes revealed deep reverence.
"General He, don't get excited so fast. Wait till we've reached the Southern Barbaric City. It won't be late to get excited then." Duan Ling Tian lightly smiled with a carefree expression.
Meanwhile, the surrounding Paladin Academy students looked at Duan Ling Tian with gazes that had deep admiration mixed within. Especially those 300 Star General Department students; they were extremely excited.
The other time they entered the battlefield, they hadn't even gone into battle when they retreated.
This time, however, was a chance to bathe in blood on the battlefield and utilize all that they'd learned in order to strive for battle achievements!
Within Southern Barbaric City.
Within the spacious campsite, a group of generals and strategists were gathered around, and their faces were unsightly.
"Today's matter is truly strange. Logically speaking, it's impossible for the Crimson Sky Kingdom's army to possess so many arrows...." A strategist frowned, and the corners of his mouth curled into a bitter smile.
"I feel it to be strange as well. Moreover, we've obviously killed quite a few of their men, but their offensive hasn't slowed down in the slightest...Didn't they only have a huge army of 100,000 left? So many of them have died, so how could they possibly launch such a formidable offensive?" The other strategist nodded and then frowned, and his frown wasn't gone even after a long time.
"Our soldiers don't even dare probe their heads out from the city wall, as the person who does it will surely be killed...It will probably be not long before the Crimson Sky Kingdom's army approaches our city's walls." A general's face was full of worry.
"Kill!" Suddenly, right at this moment, an explosive voice abruptly resounded within the campsite, causing the group of generals and strategist that were gathered together to be confused.
In next to no time, they saw the Crimson Wyrm Army coming straight at them!
"It's the Crimson Sky Kingdom's Crimson Wyrm Army!"
"Oh my god! How did they sneak inside?!"
One by one, the generals and strategists were quickly enveloped by the Crimson Wyrm Army.
A firework whistled out from within the Southern Barbaric City and exploded in the air.
"Kill your way in!" Duan Ling Tian's loud voice abruptly ordered.
The border army that was pent up with anger for so many days instantly launched an attack on the city, and for a moment, their battle-cries shook the heavens and their imposing might pierced through the sky.
Facing the Southern Champion Kingdom's army that was sneak attacked by the Crimson Wyrm Army to the point they were thrown into a panic, the border army easily blasted open the city gate and directly stormed the city, launching a one-sided slaughter!
The Crimson Wyrm Army and border army had coordinated the attacks from the inside and the outside and made a clean sweep of the Southern Champion Kingdom's soldiers, whose morale had lowered extremely.
For an entire day, half of Southern Barbaric City flowed with rivers of blood.
"Kill!" Duan Ling Tian had currently joined into the battle, as the present situation of the battle was one-sided and didn't require him to direct it.
The Violet Myrtle Flexible Sword whistled out as if it had transformed into a violet bolt of lightning. Every time it flashed out, it would take the life of a Southern Champion Kingdom soldier with it.
Beside Duan Ling Tian, Xiao Yu and Xiao Xun had both killed to the point that they were unable to control themselves.
Duan Ling Tian couldn't help but glare when he saw the Southern Champion Kingdom soldier that was about to die beneath his sword be killed by Xiao Xun first. "Xiao Xun, don't snatch away my business!"
Xiao Xun laughed embarrassedly and continued to pounce forward.
Killing a man in ten steps, unstoppable for a thousand miles!
Duan Ling Tian's mood surged, and he only felt the blood within his entire body boil...
Only after the Southern Champion Kingdom was only left with a group of soldiers and generals that surrendered did the Crimson Sky Kingdom's army stop the slaughter.
Presently, there was either a corpse or blood beneath Duan Ling Tian's feet, and the clothes of everyone was drenched in blood.
"Duan Ling Tian!"
"Duan Ling Tian!"
"Duan Ling Tian!"
The imposing manner of the Crimson Sky Kingdom's army pierced into the sky, and they were currently madly shouting Duan Ling Tian's name.
Because they knew that if they didn't have Duan Ling Tian today, then it would impossible for them to take revenge for the brothers that died a few days ago.
If it wasn't for Duan Ling Tian, they would have been unable to breach Southern Barbaric City and feel exaltation upon fulfillment!
Southern Barbaric City was similar to Relentless Thriving City; half of the city was a campsite, and the other half was a place where streams of people gathered....
However, breaching a city and plundering the place without harming the commoners, this was practically the tacit agreement amongst the various kingdoms. Thus, although the commoners within the northern half of Southern Barbaric City were mourning, they never thought of feeling scared.
"Lost! We've lost!"
"How could this be possible? A few days ago, the Crimson Sky Kingdom's army of 110,000 was killed into a retreat by our Southern Champion Kingdoms army, and they lost over 10,000 people...Now, the Crimson Sky Kingdom at most possessed an army of 100,000. How could they have possibly broken through our Southern Barbaric City's line of defense?!"
"I heard a strategist with unsurpassed wisdom appeared in the Crimson Sky Kingdom's army, and with peerless tactics, he breached the Southern Barbaric City without a single casualty!"
"Without a single casualty? That's impossible, right?!"
"Yeah, how could no one die in battle....?"
"It's true! I heard that only 100 or so soldiers of the Crimson Sky Kingdom suffered injuries, and there was not a single casualty!"
For a time, the strategist of the Crimson Sky Kingdom who possessed unsurpassed wisdom became the center of discussion amongst Southern Barbaric City's commoners.
That night, cheers enveloped the sky and the earth within Southern Barbaric City. The cheers practically never stopped.
It was precisely the Crimson Sky Kingdom's huge army of 100,000 that was celebrating.
"Brother Ling Tian, I toast to you!" He Wei An raised his bowl of wine with a flushed face. He'd been in the army and gone to battle for so many years, but this was the first time he obtained such an achievement....Taking over Southern Barbaric City, which had been in a stalemate with the Relentless Thriving City for so many years, without losing a single soldier!
He knew that his name would surely remain in history, and that he would be famous and remembered forever.
Of course, he also knew that the youth before him would not only become famous within the Crimson Sky Kingdom from today onwards, his name would even spread throughout the entire Southern Champion Kingdom...In the future, as long as they heard this youth's name, the army of the Southern Champion Kingdom would probably flee as soon as they got wind of it!
"General He." Duan Ling Tian held up his bowl of wine as well and bumped their bowls together before drinking it all in one go.
"Come, drink!" Nie Fen was extremely happy as well.
Presently, even the old man that stood behind Nie Fen had a gaze that flickered with a sense of extraordinary splendor when he looked at Duan Ling Tian.
This youth had virtually made history in the Crimson Sky Kingdom!
Even the Senior Marquis of the Divine Might Marquis Estate had never once obtained such a terrifying achievement in battle!
Annihilating the entire Southern Barbaric City's huge army of 100,000 without losing a single soldier...It was utterly heaven-defying!
"Duan Ling Tian, you're the pride of our Paladin Academy!" In the distance, a Star General Department higher grade student stood up as he looked at Duan Ling Tian, and he drank all the wine within his bowl in one go.
"Exactly, you're the pride of our paladin Academy!" For a moment, including Xiao Xun and Xiao Yu, all the other Paladin Academy students stood up and toasted Duan Ling Tian.
Breaching the Southern Champion Kingdom's Southern Barbaric City was a brilliant and meritorious service.
They could imagine that when they returned this time, they would be rewarded with titles of nobility, and this would hugely affect their futures.
Moreover, they understood that all this was something Duan Ling Tian gave them.
"Thank you, Young Master Ling Tian, for helping our brothers get revenge!" Right at this moment, the nearly 90,000 border army officers had all stood up. They raised their wine bowls and respectfully bowed to Duan Ling Tian. They spoke with voices that were filled with gratitude and respect.
