Lord of Flames - Chapter 26
Chapter 26. It’s No Use Panicking!
“Your army has been defeated, the Chief and the High Priest are dead. You can either choose to surrender or die!” A White Fox warrior bellowed in front of the Black Fox Tribe.
Since the Black Fox Tribe was very large, they still had tens of thousands of people left. Behind the walls, a large number of Black Fox warriors were feeling a strong sense of uneasiness. This was due to a lot of Fox warriors from the other tribes standing by, outside of the blockade. In front of the gate, two men were kneeling. Both of them were the sons of the Black Fox Tribe Chief.
Some of the Black Foxes managed to escape during the Battle of the Miracle Wasteland, even though a small number of them came back, the news of their defeat still came.
Therefore, the Black Fox soldiers nearby the barricade didn’t know whether they should fight or not.
“Why are you panicking? We have hundreds of archers! Our fence is so high that they can’t climb up,” a Black Fox said loudly.
This Black Fox was the brother of the Black Fox Tribe Chief. Because the Black Fox Tribe Chief died, he could now become the new Chief!
With the temptation of becoming the Patriarch right in front of him, how could he surrender now?
His presence alone calmed the hearts of many Black Foxes.
Yes, even though the walls of the Black Fox Tribe were tall and big, and even though they had hundreds of archers guarding the city, they had hesitated upon seeing that there were thousands of enemies outside, they didn’t even dare to initiate an attack.
“Kill them,” Qing Ling gave the decisive order after seeing that the Black Fox people didn’t surrender.
A White Fox warrior raised his sword and swung it down, slicing off the heads of the two sons of the Black Fox Tribe Chief.
Witnessing such a scene happen impacted the Black Foxes. Shortly after, they saw a woman in a silk robe, with a veil on her face and a graceful figure, slowly walk towards them. She was singing softly with a wand in her hand.
“It’s a sorcerer!” Some of the Black Foxes who saw Meng Ying exclaimed.
On the wall just above the stockade’s gate, the Chief’s elder brother also saw her. The moment he noticed that the wand in her hand was getting increasingly brighter, a sense of extreme anxiousness flashed through his mind. Human sorcerers were quite different from the Orcish priests that he knew about. The most obvious contrast between them was that Orcish priests would usually have some strange means before casting their magic.
However, human sorcerers didn’t do any of those. It was just that their attack was especially sharp!
“Fire your arrows!” The Black Fox Tribe Chief’s brother quickly shouted.
A large number of Black Fox warriors drew their bowstrings and shot at Meng Ying. However, in front of Meng Ying, several White Fox warriors with big shields protected her from the barrage of arrows. Not a single one went past them.
A few seconds later, the magic wand in Meng Ying’s hand shone brightly. The Black Fox Chief’s brother began panicking. No matter what he did, it was of no use. In the sky, a huge ball of fire crashed down towards them!
The ball of fire burst above the gate.
The entire area was engulfed in flames, the gate was utterly destroyed. The soldiers on and underneath the gate were all buried in a sea of fire as they burnt to ashes.
At a small distance away outside of the stockade, the other Fox warriors cheered while they shouted the name of the “Lord of Flames”.
Meng Ying’s attack just now was a Divine Spell. This was Lin Yan’s evolved “Heavenly Fire” ability.
It was exactly as its name described; Heavenly Fire, the fire that fell from the sky.
If this fireball attacked a proper human city’s walls, then it wouldn’t have shown this kind of effect. But since the Black Fox Tribe’s defenses were made of wood, then it didn’t matter how tall it was.
After a while, the flames started to subside.
“Follow me!” The dozen or so tribal Chiefs who wanted to show their loyalty to the Lord of Flames quickly rushed in.
On the opposing side, after Meng Ying destroyed the stockade’s gate and killed the Black Fox Tribe Chief’s brother alongside a large number of Black Fox soldiers, the rest of the Black Fox warriors nearby the stockade were ashen-faced. They didn’t have any will to fight left.
The attacking Fox tribe was as strong as a bundle of bamboo. Even though the whole Black Fox Tribe still had several thousand soldiers, with their leader dead and rock-bottom fervor, none of them resisted.
