Yang Kai said, “City Lord Lin, I suggest you form a supervisory team.”
Lin Tong raised his brow, “Army Supervisor?”
Yang Kai’s expression became solemn as he solemnly said, “The war between the two races is different from the one-on-one battles between cultivators. There must be a clear law and order on the battlefield. Those who refuse to obey the orders of a Supremacy can be killed, those who flee before the battle can be cut down, those who disturb the morale of the army can be cut down, those who retreat after the battle can be cut down, those who don’t try their best can be cut down!” He turned his head to look at Lin Tong, his voice ice cold, “This is the duty and mission of the Army Supervisor!”
Lin Tong and Ma Yin both felt a chill run down their spines as they listened to Yang Kai’s words. If this really happened, before they could even confront the Demon Race, they would have to kill many of their own people.
However, after thinking about it carefully, this was indeed a good way to deal with the current situation. With so many enemies, Tiger Roar City was in imminent danger, so if they wanted to defend the city, they had to work together. With such an army in charge, even if they couldn’t increase their morale, they could at least force the cultivators in the city to fight.
After understanding this point, Lin Tong said, “Palace Master Yang’s words are correct, but I’m afraid my Tiger Roar City’s cultivators won’t be able to handle this matter.”
Yang Kai smiled and said, “If City Lord Lin trusts this Palace Master, then leave this matter to me.”
“Alright!” Lin Tong nodded.
Outside the city, the Demon Race had launched a large-scale invasion, causing the cultivators in the city to panic. The crowd gathered atop the city walls and looked into the distance, trying to find out what they knew.
At this moment, a man flew around the city, his expression cold and his voice bone-chilling, “The Demon Race has invaded and a great war is about to break out. This battle concerns the survival of Tiger Roar City and the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in the city. The City Lord has ordered that this battle must be won’t be lost. The rules of this battlefield are clear. Those who refuse to obey the orders of a Supremacy, those who flee before the battle will be killed, those who disturb the morale of the army will be killed, those who retreat after the battle will be killed, those who don’t try their best will be killed!”
His voice was loud and clear, enough for everyone who passed by to hear him clearly. As soon as he spoke these words, everyone looked at each other, some of them prepared to flee when they saw the situation was bad, but after listening to him, they all frowned. However, they didn’t think too much of it, after all, everyone could see that Tiger Roar City was likely doomed. If they really wanted to escape, it wouldn’t just be one or two people, but a large group of them. At that time, the law would not punish the masses, so how could the City Lord still have the mood to care about this? Even his own life would be in danger.
Most of them thought that these slogans were just a casual shout, a pre-battle mobilization.
But before they could finish this thought, they saw another group of people flying over. This group of people was quite large, about a thousand in number, and judging from their clothing, they were not native cultivators from Tiger Roar City but reinforcements from another region. The leader of this group was a young man with fiery red hair.
Eastern Region’s Ahan Temple’s Chi Gui!
Many people recognized him at once. It wasn’t that Chi Gui was famous, it was just that his appearance was too special, so it was easy for others to recognize him. Even if they hadn’t seen him before, they had heard of him before. This man’s hair was like a flame, and there was no one else in Tiger Roar City who could recognize him. The group of people behind him should be the cultivators from Ahan Temple.
If this was all there was to it, it wouldn’t be enough to attract everyone’s attention. What was truly shocking was that Chi Gui was flying in front of them with a murderous aura and a pair of sharp eyes, as if he was looking at everyone he could kill. Behind him was a group of cultivators, all of whom were holding a large pile of bloody heads in their hands.
There were at least a few hundred of these heads, most of them had died with their eyes open, blood still dripping from their necks, a single glance was enough to send chills down one’s spine.
Many people suddenly realized that these heads looked somewhat familiar.
Just as they were about to take a closer look at who these heads belonged to, they heard the cultivators shouting, “The Five Great Families have disrupted the morale of our forces and have been killed! Wu Zijin has fled and has been killed!”
Just like the person who had just announced the law of the battlefield, he shouted as he sped past.
Wherever it passed, everyone who heard it was stunned.
No wonder these heads looked so familiar, they belonged to the Five Great Families, and who else could it be but Vice City Lord Wu Zijin?
The Vice City Lord had been killed, and so had the members of the Five Great Families! Before the battle had even begun, so many of their own people had already died, and these people were all influential figures in Tiger Roar City.
It wasn’t until this moment that everyone realized that the so-called Battlefield Law wasn’t just for fun, but was actually going to be implemented. Didn’t they see the hundreds of bloody heads? Those were the heads of the Five Great Families and Vice City Lord. Even the Five Great Families and Vice City Lord had been killed for violating the Law, so who would be able to escape?
In other words, when Tiger Roar City was in danger, there was actually a group of people standing behind them holding butcher’s knives? If they were to accidentally violate the rules of the battlefield, would the butcher’s knife fall on their necks? Everyone’s hearts trembled as they no longer dared to think about getting lucky. They knew that they couldn’t compare to the Five Great Families, nor could they compare to Vice City Lord Wu Zijin, naturally their lives weren’t worth as much as theirs.
On top of the city walls, Lin Tong was nervously examining his communication compass, obviously collecting information from all over the city.
After a moment, his nervous expression gradually relaxed as he looked up at Yang Kai and said, “Palace Master Yang’s methods are quite good!”
Ma Yin’s beautiful eyes lit up as she looked at him, “How is the situation in the city?”
Lin Tong smiled lightly and said, “Although there are still some people who are panicking, at the very least, the morale of the army is high.”
Hearing this, Ma Yin said excitedly, “That’s great!” Turning her head, she looked at Yang Kai gratefully, “If Tiger Roar City can be defended, Palace Master Yang will be the greatest contributor.”
Yang Kai shook his head, “I wouldn’t dare, but the two of you shouldn’t lower your guard. Right now, the cultivators in the city are only being deterred by those human heads. If we really want to defend the city, we’ll have to wait for the next battle. If our side collapses, no one will be able to save us.”
Lin Tong laughed loudly, “Although there aren’t many cultivators in my Tiger Roar City, if we can truly work together, it won’t be so easy to swallow. A group of demonic bastards, today we’ll show them the might of my Tiger Roar City!”
Yang Kai nodded, “It’s good that City Lord has such confidence!”
As they were talking, Ma Yin suddenly took out her communication compass and examined it, her expression becoming solemn as she said, “The Demon Race seems to have underestimated us. They have gathered all their strength and are preparing to break through from the east!”
“Go take a look!” Lin Tong coldly snorted.
The few of them rushed towards the east and soon arrived at their destination. The city walls were already filled with people, most of whom were native cultivators of Tiger Roar City. Seeing Lin Tong and Ma Yin arrive, they immediately cupped their fists and made way for them.
Yang Kai stood on the city wall with the two of them and looked up, only to see a large black army slowly approaching from ten Kilometers away. The Demon Race leaders were riding on huge and fierce-looking Demon Beasts, their expressions calm and relaxed, as if they weren’t here to attack the city but to play. The several hundred thousand strong army behind them was also in disarray, but it was completely silent. Above the Demon Race army’s head, a black cloud covered the sky as it approached Tiger Roar City.
The black clouds were threatening to crush the city!
Gulp, gulping sounds rang out as pairs of eyes turned towards Lin Tong, seemingly trying to find a sense of security.
Lin Tong’s expression was solemn as he stood motionless on the city wall. As the wind blew, his white hair fluttered in the wind, but his old figure seemed incomparably tall and his eyes were as sharp as a hawk’s!
Ten kilometers, eight kilometers, five kilometers…
The tense atmosphere began to spread. Some people had already taken out their artifacts and were clenching and unclenching them tightly, their palms covered in sweat, while others were bidding each other farewell, feeling that there was no hope of survival in this battle.
The appearance of the Demon Race had been clearly imprinted in everyone’s eyes, and those fierce and terrifying Demon Beasts also gave people great psychological pressure.
Three kilometers away, the leader of the Demon Race suddenly grinned towards the crowd on the city wall, revealing a mouthful of white fangs, raised his hand high up and slowly swung it down.
Behind him, the originally scattered and disorderly army seemed to have been injected with stimulants as they charged forward like thunder, the sounds of battle echoing throughout the sky. The killing intent and shouts of hundreds of thousands of Demon Race cultivators, along with the Demonic Qi that filled the sky, seemed to have condensed into a solid form as they charged towards Tiger Roar City.
Many people’s faces went pale, and some even couldn’t help retreating, causing others to stagger back. Before the battle even began, the city walls had already become chaotic.
Seeing this, the leader of the Demon Race laughed loudly, his laughter echoing like thunder for a hundred kilometers.
Swish swish swish…
As a cold light flashed, someone’s head flew up and blood splashed everywhere. In the bustling crowd, dozens of headless corpses fell to the ground, their bright red blood dripping onto the nearby cultivators’ faces. The hot and wet sensation gave them goosebumps.
Chi Gui’s cold and cruel voice rang out, “Those who fear before battle, beheaded!”
He coldly withdrew his blade and looked around. The surrounding cultivators all avoided his gaze, and there were a few dozen others who were also moving like him. They were the ones who had just killed those cultivators, each of them exuding a ghastly aura.
In an instant, there was no one within ten meters of these people, all of them hiding far away.
If what they had heard about the battlefield’s laws and the hundreds of heads they had seen before was still a distant memory, then what had happened now was really happening right beside them.
There really was someone holding a butcher’s knife behind their back, ready to fall at any moment! Was… was this even human?
Yang Kai shouted, “I won’t hide it from you, there are five thousand Army Supervisors in the city, if there are any who violate the rules of the battlefield, they will not show any mercy. Please take care!”
Five thousand Supervisor! This number shocked everyone.
