The Lord's Empire Chapter 919
“All 20 Corps, scatter around the army and use your Corps’ power to suppress the ground beneath you and stop the tremors.”
Bai Qi immediately gave out an order, and the people from the 20 Corps went around the army and exploded out with powerful auras. For example, the Sword Mountain Corps sent a massive amount of sword qi into the ground, the Demon King Corps sent a large amount of demonic qi into the ground, and the Celestial Corps sent a great amount of spirit qi into the ground.
As their various powers entered the ground and spread out, the surrounding land was sealed and stopped shaking. However, this was only limited to where Great Qin’s army was, and the surrounding ground continued to violently tremble, causing Great Qin’s Generals to frown.
The other side had many tricks up their sleeves, and in order to defend well, they had used all sorts of tricks, some of which were completely unpredictable.
Facing these tremors, Bai Qi ordered the army to wait and not make any rash movements. Those tremors lasted 15 days before they finally stopped.
The item that had caused these tremors had been destroyed after being continuously used for 15 days and 15 nights, and it cost tens of millions of gold coins every day. They could not support an expenditure like this.
Now, these regions looked like they had been ravaged by unimaginable natural disasters. Mountains had collapsed, and the ground had massive cracks running through it. The surroundings were deathly silent as if all living creatures had died.
This made it incredibly hard to walk, if not impossible to walk. However, Bai Qi once again gave the order to advance; even if there was no path to be walked, they would make a path.
The soldiers took out yellow gems and controlled the dirt and rocks to quickly fill some of the cracks, allowing the army to continue onwards.
The various factions never thought that despite all of this, Great Qin would still attack the central area. It seemed that they were determined to destroy the central area, and the strategists once again discussed together.
Si Ji’s expression was quite grave, as he received news from the two other worlds that the two World Protectors still had not fully recovered from the previous battle and were still incredibly weak. It would be impossible for them to come and kill Great Qin’s Legatee.
This made Si Ji silently curse; it seemed that they had to rely on themselves. They had to think of a way to lure Great Qin’s Legatee out by himself and use the Demon Slaying Formation to kill him.
However, this made the strategists’ job much harder. After much discussion, the strategists decided to rush the repair of the item that caused earthquakes, while Jiang Ziya and the others created a Heaven and Earth Change Formation.
Bai Qi continued leading Great Qin’s army onwards, giving off an aura as great as a mountain. They disregarded all obstructions, seeming completely determined to attack the central region.
The ground once again trembled, but it was not as severe as before, and they could still manage to walk. Before, they could barely even stand, and this was because the item that they used had been badly damaged, and even after some repairs, its effects were much weaker than before.
This was good for Great Qin’s soldiers, because if the tremors were still as great as before, the paths they made could collapse at any time, making things quite dangerous.
However, the various strategists had thought of countermeasures as well. Jiang Ziya’s Heaven and Earth Change Formation was activated, causing countless clouds to gather, obscuring the sky and giving off an oppressive feeling.
A wild gale started to blow as torrential rain started to pour, and bolts of lightning ferociously crashed down. Adding on the tremors in the ground, it seemed like the end of the world, making it incredibly difficult to walk.
However, Great Qin still did not give up. The Corps unleashed their Corps Shields to defend against the gales and the rain, and the army continued to advance.
On a tall platform, surrounded by countless flags, Jiang Ziya stood wearing white robes, looking quite ethereal and otherworldly. There was a massive magic formation in the sky that slowly spun, causing Heaven and Earth Essence Qi to madly gather.
Since Great Qin was still so resolute about attacking the central area, Jiang Ziya was expressionless as he performed various hand seals, causing the magic formation in the sky to spin faster and faster as even more Heaven and Earth Essence Qi gathered.
Even more intense gales and rain buffeted Great Qin’s army, and there would occasionally even be lightning striking at them. Fortunately, they had the protection of the Corps Shields, so there were no injuries or casualties; it just made it much harder to advance.
However, Bai Qi’s expression was cold and showed no intention of stopping, and he continued ordering Great Qin’s army onwards.
Seeing Great Qin look so determined and relentless, the various factions started to feel nervous. If they clashed head-on, they were worried that they were not a match for Great Qin. After all, Great Qin’s battle power and battle intent were much higher than theirs.
Moreover, they were just a number of factions gathered together and were not as unified. Once Great Qin broke through their defenses, with Great Qin’s Legatee’s terrifying attacks, many people would directly run away, and they would lose without a doubt.
If they wanted to prevent this, they had to stop this at all costs. The strategists continued to think and ordered people to suicide attacks.
With the chaotic conditions, it was dangerous for the Wyverns and City Lords to be in the air. If they started launching suicide attacks, they could be quite effective.
In order to deal with this matter, the strategists continued to think of other methods. If they could stop Great Qin’s army in the Void Zone, they would win.
Finally, after six days, Great Qin’s army was unable to withstand the attacks and harsh conditions and chose to retreat.
After once again sending Great Qin’s army into retreat, the various factions became mad with joy. They were incredibly emotional, as this was their second victory against Great Qin, and their lowered spirits once again rose. This showed everything that they really did have the strength to defend against Great Qin.
They once again victoriously announced, “We’ve repelled the evil Great Qin for the second time now. Everyone, please believe in our strength and join us to resist Great Qin’s tyrannical behavior. For the peace of the world and for a better future!”
Those who were displeased with Great Qin were also incredibly joyful. They were the happiest about this result, so they all started and cheer and celebrate. Some people started to shout about destroying the Qin dog and joined various factions.
Now that the factions had an advantage and gave out many benefits, many people immediately joined them.
The real world was filled with even more mocking towards Great Qin, calling Great Qin trash or saying that it had received its dues.
