How would they ever know that it was all because sitting in the lead carriage, was a higher demon.
If they realized it, then it was quite certain that their mood would not be so relaxed.
After two days and two nights, the group were already deep within the eastern part of the Barren Land, and they could already see the silhouette of those ruined cities.
The places where the Demon Race used to reside had been changed beyond recognition due to the war. The existence of a large number of demons had also caused a lot of cities to become ruins.
When they were about to reach their destination, Shen Yanxiao saw a group of people halfway down the road.
That group had as many as two to four hundred people.
In the Barren Land, it is not unusual to see demons, but to see humans beings, it was very strange.
That group of people had set a camp in a forest nearby and made piles of bonfires near them. They continued to enter the cave not for from there.
They pushed a cart with their hands, and a cart full of dark ores were brought out of the cave.
Shen Yanxiao ordered the team to stop. She walked down the carriage to look at that group of people.
"What are they doing?" Shen Yanxiao looked at the people and asked Uncle Jiu who was next to her.
Uncle Jiu replied, “They are mining ore. The Barren Land had been an abandoned place for a long time. However, the resources here are abundant than anywhere else in the Radiance Continent. The reason why the four countries wanted to reclaim the areas on this land was precisely because there were inexhaustible resources here. You see, those on that cart over there, those are obsidian. Obsidian in the Radiance Continent is extremely rare. Weapons forged with obsidian are extremely hard. If they are used to create the city wall, even if it is an intense magic or artillery, I’m afraid there still would not be a crack even after three or four months of attacking it.”
Shen Yanxiao raised her eyebrow lightly. This seemingly dangerous place actually contained the richest treasure of the Radiance Continent?
But there was was still a problem she was curious about.
“The eastern part of the Barren Land is under the Long Xuan Empire. As far as I know, the champions of the previous school tournament had all left after two or three months. Hence, we should be the only ones here representing the Long Xuan Empire, so who could these people be?” Shen Yanxiao asked.
Uncle Jui replied, “Looking at their dress, they aren’t from Long Xuan Empire and should be people from the other three countries.”
Shen Yanxiao sneered.
"They dare to bully my country, Long Xuan Empire? They unexpectedly dare to touch my land!”
There was an agreement between the four countries. Although they couldn't open up a city in the Barren Land in such a short time, they had already divided the Barren Land accordingly to the four countries surrounding it. Even if the Longxuan Empire had not been successful in reclaiming their portion, according to the Four Nations Agreement, people from other countries could not invade or take anything here in the eastern region.
Shen Yanxiao had just stepped on her territory, only to see someone stealing the resources belonging to her.
This was blatant plundering!
“Relax, the other three countries already have deep foundation in the Barren Land, while we haven’t even build a city yet. If we were to be in conflict with them at this time, it will be very bad for us.” Uncle Jiu saw that Shen Yanxiao was angry and so tried to pacify her.
Shen Yanxiao sneered, "Do you want me to swallow my anger, to remain quiet, and just watch them get the resources that belongs to me right under my nose?”
"...For now that’s the only thing we can do.” Uncle Jiu sighed. The lowly progress of Long Xuan Empire in taking their portion in the Barren Land was well known by everyone.
