Zhong Li Bai was furious.
He was truly furious, although the two of them had collaborated for a short time before, but he still did not like theblind man. The Raging Inferno Academy and the Lionheart Academy were the two highest institutions of the LeoConstellation, and Lei Ang had high hopes for them. It could even be told from their names, he had used the SaintSword Raging Lionheart’s name to give it to the two institutions, showing his hope towards them, that they could beas powerful as the Raging Lionheart.
The two institutions did not let down Lion King’s expectations, and groomed the most outstanding military generals.But between the two, it was extremely hostile, both parties were like water and fire, forever competing with eachother.
When he was a prisoner, Nie Qiu had already started organizing the army, and even Xu Xiang Dong had died in hishands, that was why Zhong LI Bai was so furious, but he knew that Nie Qiu was already ahead of him.
Losing to the blind man made the prideful Zhong Li Bai infuriated.
~But, do you think, that you’re the only one who gained enlightenment on war formations?~
Zhong Li Bai relaxed his hands, a flash of ferocity flashed past his eyes, but he calmed down.
~This is just the beginning, although that damn blind man is ahead of me, but I still have my opportunities. Nie Qiu isstationed in Purple Cuckoo City, and has no way to leave, but I can make my own moves.
That’s right, the four words of ‘make his own moves’, made Zhong Li Bai’s blood boil.
He had a different style from Nie Qiu’s balance tactics, Zhong Li Bai’s fighting style was more suited for offense, andhis most favourite and proficient tactics were also in offense. There were many reason why he was not viewed muchin Leo Constellation, one was because his style of fighting was too wild. This “wild” trait of his was displayed in manyaspects, for example he would always throw everything he had into the fight, or he hardl
y followed rules, or he didthings unscrupulously.
The confident and powerful Leo Constellation naturally did not welcome such military generals, they won usingright and just ways, why should they resort to such means? They clearly have control over all situations, why theneed to go to such extremes?
On the road, Zhong Li Bai was helpless towards the Null Division. In terms of training the Null DIvision, hisperformance paled in comparison to Nie Qiu’s. Now, he finally gained an opportunity, an unrestricted opportunity.
His anger previously encompassed anger and intention, a plan that he came up with.
He did not know if Tang Tian would support or refuse his plan, and what if he rejected it? He could not go againstTang Tian’s orders, he still had the grooming of a professional military general. And he was not willing to let go ofthis opportunity, so before Tang Tian could even speak up, he made the initiative to move out.
The moment he left Tang Tian’s side, he pulled the East Immortal Unit that had not completed their training out ofthe city, and did not bring any Null Division members. The Null Division were more experienced, but Zhong Li Baiknew that they were completely loyal only to Master, and to go past his command over the unit was impossible.Since that was so, he did not want to take them along. Furthermore, the Null Division was Master’s favourite, if theysuffered a huge loss, he would be in trouble.
As for the East Immortal Unit, Zhong Li Bai saw them as cannon fodder, whether or not they were killed, no onewould say anything, and Zhong Li Bai did not have any kindness in his heart.
The unit was noisy and in a disarray, if it was Nie Qiu, he would definitely be frowning, but Zhong Li Bai did not care.
The East Immortal Unit was formed by gathering the elites of East Immortal City, and even the Xu Family elites weretaken by him. With the death of Xu Xiang Dong and He Xin, the Xu Family was on the road to destruction. Zhong LiBai just had to scare and cheat them, saying that only by being the Master’s subordinates would they be able tosurvive, and thus making the Xu Family elites become obedient.
Of course, this was related to the atmosphere of Sin Domain. In the Sin Domain, the massacre of an entire family was rare, but at the same time, powerful people were the most important resource. Unless the hatred was deep enough, no one would do such a thing. Usually. They would send their strongest martial artists to do battle until a winner comes out, and that was when relying on numbers usually helped. The winner would swallow the loser’s family, while the losing family cannot retaliate at all.
Tang Tian’s display of strength had shook the entire East Immortal City, and after experiencing the horrifying battle,The families in East Immortal City did not have any thought of going against Tang Tian.
Other than the Xu Family, there were two other big families, the Yu family and the Song Family. Although the twofamilies did not have any martial artists like Xu Xiang Dong capable of being in the List of Powerhouse, but Yu Taoand Song Cheng Yu were definitely not inferior to Xu Ye.
Zhong Li Bai called them over, and without hiding anything, they told them of the news, then told them: “You guysknow the situation now. This time, if we cannot even obtain something, we will not have any face to return. If youguys have any ideas, tell me.”
The two of them remained quiet, absorbing what Zhong Li Bai had said. Zhong Li Bai did not have much expectationfrom them, but they were still locals and knew much more about the situation in Sin Domain than him.
After thinking about it, he spoke up: “Master’s goal isn’t to take Sharp Wind City, but to save the Null Divisionmembers held captive there, that is the true goal.”
Song Cheng Yu was the first to speak up, he looked at Zhong Li Bai: “It’s not only Star Wind City, but all the othercities have martial artists in the List of Powerhouses as well….”
Zhong Li Bai did not express anything, his gaze landing on Yu Tao. Nie Qiu was able to bring a group of Null Divisionmembers and kill an expert on the List of Powerhouses, this had greatly impacted Zhong Li Bai. After being aprisoner for so long, he was still unclear of how powerful a martial artist on the List of Powerhouse was.
~That blind man was able to kill Xu Xiang Dong?~
Thinking about that, Zhong Li Bai felt threatened, ~Will the formation that I comprehend be able to fight against anexpert on the List of Powerhouses?~ But he quickly calmed down, Nie Qiu’s forces had included Gu Xue, Han BingNing and Ah Mo LI, the Null Division themselves had training, those were factors that allowed them to kill Xu XiangDong.
~No matter how powerful the formation can be, without anyone, it is still useless, and the mob here?~
If they lost, it would be a small matter, and even if they were all sacrificed, it would not amount to much, but the lostof his face was something he could not bear, ~Wouldn’t that mean I have lost to Nie Qiu?~
Yu Tao had a forthright appearance with a short stature, and only said one sentence: “We have too few people.”
Zhong Li Bai’s eyes lit up: “Details.”
“We do not have sufficient powerful martial artists, so we should use our numbers.” Yu Tao explained.
Zhong Li Bai felt as though he had gained a new enlightenment, ~That’s right, since we can’t compete in quality, weshould fight in quantity. When comparing in experienced martial artists fighting together, the East Immortal Unitcannot compete with those Null Division Members, so we might as well fight with numbers.~
Once that thought path had been opened, Zhong Li Bai’s thoughts was like a wild horse out of control, wantonlyrunning fast and wild.
“Where’s the place with the most List of Powerhouses martial artists?” Zhong Li Bai suddenly asked.
“The four Main Cities.” Song Cheng Yu explained it to him: “More than half of the martial artists on the List ofPowerhouses are all situated in the Four Main Cities. There, the resources are the most abundant, and informationflows through there. The further you move towards the sides, there are fewer martial artists on the List ofPowerhouses.”
“Do you have a map? Let me take a look.” Zhong Li Bai asked.
Song Cheng Yu immediately took out a map, revealing the location of the 17 cities in Sin Domain. The Sin Domain’sarea was revealed, it‘s crescent shape and the 17 cities strewn at random inside it. On the map, the Four Main Citieswere the most striking, they occupied the hinterlands of the crescent, which was the best place in the entire SinDomain.
Zhong Li Bai then asked the two of them a few questions, which experts laid in which cities, after clarifying all of it,his brazen plan gradually took place in his mind.
“We need more people.” Zhong Li Bai licked his lips, he squinted his small eyes, with his stiff face, he lookedextremely sinister: “It seems like we need to grab some people for this to work. Are there anyone around us wherethere isn’t any powerful martial artists on the List of Powerhouses?”
“West Wind Camp!”
“West Wind Camp!”
The two of them said in unison.
“West Wind Camp?” Zhong Li Bai was surprised, he looked back at the map and asked curiously: “Why isn’t itmarked in the map?”
“General is unaware.” Song Cheng Yu immediately explained: “But West Wind Camp is a Brigand Unit, and has areputation in the region. Although they do not have any A Grade Infamous men, but there are seven B GradeInfamous men, so no families dare to provoke them. Although they have set up a checkpoint for tolls, but they areearning from it, thus they rarely take the initiative to plunder and kill people.”
Zhong Li Bai became somewhat interested: “How many men does the West Wind Camp have?”
“Around 10 thousand in the entire West Wind Camp.” Song Cheng Yu said.
Zhong Li Bai jumped in shock: “So many?”
Hearing that it was a Brigand, he estimated that they would have around two to three thousand, but he neverexpected a number of 10 thousand. It surprised him that such a huge Brigand actually existed.
“It isn’t considered much.” Song Cheng Yu explained: “The Majority of them are weak, and have difficulty living inthe cities, thus they return to the mountains where they live in poverty. These brigand heads also require people tobe used, so they recruit them and clear the land in the mountains for cultivation. In the 17 Sin Domain Cities, theycan’t feed so many people. So all these brigands are small scale cities, just that their resource production aren’t asgood as the 17 cities. They live terribly, but these brigand heads are unambitious for the most part, they just collecttolls and live as the mountain kings, rarely coming out. Adding that their produce are little, the families are lazy totake care of them, there isn’t much to gain.”
“Then trade caravans aren’t affected?” Zhong Li Bai felt that he was finally understanding somethings of the world.
“They are very smart, as long as they see that the caravans are of the big families, they would not do anything, and only look for the middle or small scale caravans to collect tolls.” Song Cheng Yu revealed a bitter smile: “Unless the A Grade Infamous people, who are all tyrannically strong, who will not give face to the big families. The big families are helpless against this, and thus pay the tolls to avoid calamities.”
“Those big families are truly weak!” Zhong Li Bai’s face was filled in disbelief, in Heaven’s Road, all the aristocraticbig families were all violent, arrogant and despotic.
“What plan do you have?” Song Cheng Yu shrugged: “All of those B Grade Infamous Men are all individually strong, and appear unpredictably, all of them are very good at escaping. The experts of the big families are also unable to waste too much time on this. Why not spend some money, since to the big families, money isn’t much.”
Zhong Li Bai thought for a moment, he nodded his head: “That’s true, ultimately no one can handle those thieves.Are there many brigands like West Wind Camp?”
“There are many.” Song Cheng Yu: “The Four Main Cities have the best resources, and are occupied by the FourMain Families. The remaining 13 cities have the next best resources, and basically every city has a main big family,while the remaining weaker families who split up the rest of the resources. The remaining people usually run in themountains. Furthermore, the big families are waiting for them to expand the lands. Whichever Brigands thatdiscovers any new resource and sells them to the Big Families would immediately earn a huge wealth. That was howthe East Immortal City came about.”
Zhong Li Bai laughed, revealing his pure white teeth: “Then, let’s go to West Wind Camp!”
