Chapter 1017: Strange Movements

“Oh? Where is the ghost army? What is the scale?” The cold-faced middle-aged man asked with a frown.

“It’s in the Mystery Forest that is 100,000 miles south of Golden Light City. There is a real Pellet State ghost captain, nearly 100 ghost pawns and hundreds of ghost dogs.” The cultivator surnamed Min replied honestly.

“In such a situation… it’s really not easy to escape from it. Let’s talk about how to find the fortune bowl first?” The cold-faced man nodded and asked again.

“It’s like this. After searching around to no avail, we went to a nearby seven orifices ghost tribe… Captain Liu deputy went deep into the dangerous pit alone, killed a Real Pellet State-level ghost creature and found the fortune bowl.” The cultivator surnamed Min said.

“So, this time, Liu Ming has made a great contribution! Liu Ming, although you are a newcomer, the Golden Light Army will reward according to merits. It is a great contribution that you can find this fortune bowl alone…” After listening, the cold-faced middle-aged man looked at Liu Ming with a hint of approval in his eyes.

“Besides that, after we were trapped in the Ghost Wall Array, Deputy Captain Liu kept calm and kept the casualties to a minimum.” Before the cold-faced middle-aged man could finish speaking, the cultivator surnamed Min added.

“Very good, in addition to the rewards promised in this mission, Liu Ming can get 2 additional Real Pellet State yin cores. You can go and pick them from the military arsenal. In addition, I will reward an additional 100,000 sect contribution points. Someone will send it to you later.” The cold-faced middle-aged man said without hesitation.

“Thank you, Elder Gu.” Liu Ming quickly thanked him after hearing this.

“Okay, Liu Ming, you go back first. Min Rong stays. The seventh squad has lost 2 disciples this time, so I want to discuss with you about new squad members.” Just after saying a few sentences, Elder Gu asked Liu Ming to leave.

Liu Ming had no interest in the upper-level affairs of the Golden Light Army, so he left immediately.

In the hall, the cultivator surnamed Min continued to talk to the cold-faced middle-aged man.

“Liu Ming’s performance is really as good as you said?” Elder Gu asked solemnly.

“Indeed, according to my observation, although his cultivation is in the Pseudo Pellet State period, his real strength should be comparable to mine. In particular, his Bone Scorpion spiritual pet seems to be able to restrain ghost creatures.” The cultivator Surnamed Min said slowly.

“Okay, I understand. You go down to collect your team’s reward first. As for the few team candidates you mentioned, I will consider it.” After thinking about it, the cold-faced man also sent away the Real Pellet State captain.

Of course, Liu Ming didn’t know about the conversation. He had already returned to his cave house and thought above something.

The biggest gain this time was to know that this Che Huan could also devour ghost creatures. Although the effect was far less than devouring the beastkin souls, it did slightly improve the mystic totem art.

If Che Huan continued to devour a large number of ghosts, there might be a real hope that it would be completed.

After thinking about this, Liu Ming immediately channeled spiritual power to the totem on his shoulder. A blue light flashed in his clothes, and a huge green bull phantasm leaped out and roared silently to the sky. Its spirit patterns were faintly brighter than before.

Seeing this scene, Liu Ming showed a thoughtful look.

In a closed room in the main tower of Golden Light City, the old man in a green robe stood quietly here. On a stage in front of him was the fortune bowl that Liu Ming and others found.

The old man silently looked at the scratch on the bowl.

In the room, Hao Yue Tongzi and the cold-faced middle-aged man stood beside him with respectful faces.

“Fortunately, this fortune bowl has only been scratched a little. Its spirituality has been damaged a little, but it doesn’t affect the enchantment. After repairing and nurturing for a while, it can continue to be used.” After a while, the white-haired old man suddenly spoke.

“That’s great, then we will leave this to Master’s Junior Zhong.” Hao Yue Tongzi and the middle-aged man both breathed a sigh of relief and said respectfully.

Although they were elders in the Golden Light Army and had a high status, the white-haired old man was a Celestial State cultivator, and he was also a forge master. He was the real upper level in the Golden Light Army.

The four ancient sects would take turns sending a Mystic Comprehending State powerhouse to take charge of the Evil Ghost Way every hundred years. Now the powerhouse was one of the Taiqing Sect’s grand elder.

However, this Mystic Comprehending State powerhouse usually did not stay in the Golden Light City, but he lived in seclusion somewhere near a human base. Under normal circumstances, he wouldn’t ask about the human legions. Therefore, Golden Light City’s big and small matters were now decided by a few Celestial State elders.

“Just leave the fortune bowl with me. After half a month, you can send someone to pick it up.” The white-haired old man thought of something and said.

“Yes.” Hao Yue Tongzi and the middle-aged man surnamed Gu respectfully replied.

“By the way, about the sudden attack on Fortress No. 19 by the ghost army, how’s your investigation going?” The white-haired old man suddenly changed the topic.

Hao Yue Tongzi and the middle-aged Gu surnamed exchanged glances and coughed softly,

“According to the report, Fortress No. 19 should have been attacked by a large ghost army, then it was completely destroyed. The ghost army’s action this time is not like before. The invasion seemed to be fully prepared. During this period, other fortresses have also successively reported the abnormal movements of the ghost army. Judging from these circumstances, I’m afraid that this invasion is more of a test. After all, the previous war was a long time ago.”

“Oh, so that’s what you guys think.” The white-haired old man nodded when he heard the words. There was no emotion on his face which made people wonder what he was thinking.

Seeing this, Hao Yue Tongzi immediately closed his mouth consciously, and the room fell silent for a while.

“I just got the news that the other three sect bases and fortresses have also been frequently attacked by the ghost army recently. From various indications, this is obviously organized. Speaking of it, the ghost army will launch a large-scale attack every hundred years. It’s almost time now.” The white-haired old man said with a sigh after a long silence.

“Master’s Junior Zhong, if this is the case, should we take some countermeasures? Although most of the outer disciples are stationed in the outer fortresses, if there are too many casualties, the sect will complain.” Hao Yue Tongzi frowned and asked in a tentative tone.

“Don’t worry too much about this. We have already noticed this change in the ghost army, and the 4 major armies also secretly reached an agreement not long ago. We decided to deal with the invasion with invasion. We will dispatch main forces to quickly destroy a few small camps of the ghost army to disrupt the momentum of the ghost army.” The white-haired old man said calmly.

They were shocked to hear that.

Although the white-haired old man’s tone was calm, anyone could know that this was a big operation that was enough to turn the Evil Ghost Way upside down. Many disciples of the 4 ancient sects would stay forever in this vast Evil Ghost Way because of this.

“After so many years of fighting, the ghost army is becoming more and more cunning. Their bases is constantly changing. Judging from the information we have now, I’m afraid that it will not be easy to complete this operation. Gu Yue, I will let you spy on the ghost army information. You should know what to do.” As the white-haired old man said this, he paused and glanced at the middle-aged man who had been silent for a while.

“Disciple understands. Please rest assured, Master’s Junior.” The middle-aged man replied in a deep voice.

After they discussed for a while, Hao Yue Tongzi and the middle-aged man left the room.

“Brother Gu, Elder Zhong talked about spying information about the ghost army, what is that?” Hao Yue Tongzi asked curiously after leaving the room.

“Brother Hao Yue has not been to Evil Ghost Way for a long time, so I haven’t had time to mention this to you. In order to obtain accurate information about the ghost army, the upper level has set undercover agents in the ghost army a long time ago.” The middle-aged man said slowly.

“There is such a thing…” Hao Yue Tongzi said in surprise.

“For the sake of confidentiality, very few elders of the deputy know about this matter.” The middle-aged man said after taking a look at Hao Yue Tongzi.

“I see, but if that’s the case, it will be much easier to get information about the ghost army.” Hao Yue Tongzi said in relief and nodded his head.

“Having said that, the undercover agent is now in the giant mountain fortress of the ghost army. In order not to reveal his identity, he can’t leave the fortress. We still need to send someone to take out the information, but the candidate needs to be carefully considered.” The middle-aged face looked thoughtful.

“Maybe there is someone who can do this!” Hao Yue Tongzi’s eyes lit up when he heard the words.

2 days later.

On the seventh squad cave house.

Liu Ming was sitting cross-legged at the moment. In his sea of ​​consciousness, a blood-colored bead the size of a thumb was slowly spinning.

Suddenly, the Golden Light Army token on his waist lit up and trembled slightly.

“Eh, another mission?”

He, who was sitting cross-legged on the ground, opened his eyes suddenly and launched a symbol at the token. The token shined, and a few lines of words appeared.

He glanced at the words, and he was astounded slightly.

This message was sent by Hao Yue Tongzi, asking him to rush to the main tower now to discuss something important, but it didn’t say anything more in detail.

After a moment of thought, he stood up, left the cave house, and flew toward the tower in the center of the city.

After a while, he came to the bright hall in the tower.

In the hall at this time, Hao Yue Tongzi and the middle-aged man surnamed Gu were talking softly. They seemed to be waiting for him for quite a while.

“Greetings.” After Liu Ming entered the hall, he cupped his fist at them.

“I didn’t expect Nephew Disciple Liu to come here so soon. Don’t be too polite, come here.” Hao Yue Tongzi waved to him with a smile.

The cold-faced man also showed a smile.

“Is there anything to summon me here?” Liu Ming took a few steps forward and asked calmly.
