Lord of Flames - Chapter 30
Chapter 30. Knights are Coming to Scout the Mountains.
As Lin Yan was about to make concrete, a group of people from the Misty Mountain Range finally passed through the forest.
These people were wearing bright silver armor and in their hands were large swords. Even at a single glance, anyone could tell that they weren’t normal people.
Yes, these were all Knights!
Moreover, they were strong Knights!
One of the Knights took off his helmet, revealing a rather old face.
“The fire has finally extinguished!” He exclaimed.
The armor he was wearing wasn’t the same as the others. He was not donning a silver armor but a light golden one.
In the human countries, especially in the human kingdom to the east of The Misty Mountain Range, a knight with light gold armor meant that it was a knight of a Divine Hall!
At this moment, another knight pointed to the side.
When the pale gold armored knight looked over, his expression froze.
The place where they stood was no longer the Misty Woods.
Under their feet was ash.
After the heavy rain a few days ago, it had washed away by quite a bit. However, despite that, the ground was still littered with the color black and gray.
This wasn’t the most crucial point.
The most important thing in front of them was that the section of the forest which wasn’t burned, was lined up in a very organized way, even at a glance, anyone could see the border.
The boundary between the two was a very straight line!
This was extremely frightening!
What kind of fire could burn like this?
Could it be that these flames had eyes? They only burned a single side and not the other.
What was scary was that the other side was burned to nothingness!
This kind of phenomenon completely puzzled the Knights.
“Record the situation here.” The golden armored knight said.
One of the other Knights took out a pen and paper. He immediately started jotting down something.
“Let’s keep going, this fire is extremely strange. Unfortunately, it didn’t burn the entire Misty Mountain Range. Otherwise, we would have been able to attack the Orcish Countries. It seems like this fire isn’t that simple. No wonder the Imperial Family sent a team of flying birds to scout the fire last time.” The golden armored knight continued.
At first, they simply thought it was just an ordinary fire.
However, what they had just witnessed now was completely beyond their understanding.
In this era, things that exceeded one’s knowledge only meant one thing.
An existence that caused this phenomenon was far stronger than them.
Or perhaps this meant something else…
On the Continent of the Gods, there were only three words that could explain things that mortals couldn’t understand.
A God’s Miracle!
Although these Knights weren’t weak, they were still within the realm of mortals.
After all, they were just a slightly stronger mortal in the eyes of a God.
Normally, only after becoming a Rank 6 Magus or a Rank 6 Grand Knight would they be able to break away from the dominion of mortals.
After surveying the area a bit more, the group of Knights proceeded with their investigation.
However, now, their mood had become much more serious.
Not long after, they arrived at an area with many withered bones on the ground.
A land filled with bones.
A third of this area was destroyed by Lin Yan’s Heavenly Punishment.
However, two-thirds of this place was still alright. The result was what the Knights were seeing right now…
“There are so many bones here… Is this the expeditionary army that our kingdom sent into the Misty Woods ten years ago?” A knight questioned with doubt in his voice.
“Yes, this should probably be it.” Another knight squatted down and looked at the broken bone path.
“Milord, come over here and look at this.” At this moment, a knight who was exploring the path of his predecessors suddenly exclaimed.
The golden armored knight quickly walked over.
“Milord, be careful!” The knight quickly alerted him.
Because of the sense of urgency in the knight’s voice, the golden armored knight stopped walking.
In front of him, he saw the deep footprints left on the ground by the knight who called him.
For some reason, there was smoke emitting from the footprint.
The vicinity of the footprints was completely different from the other areas.
The piece of land was charred black.
The golden armored knight squatted down, grabbed a handful of earth from within, and brought it before his eyes.
“It’s rock ash. It’s a bit like volcanic ash. It was left after the rocks were burned.” He quickly analyzed.
“Milord, why is there rock ash here? The ground’s extremely hot. If it wasn’t for my boots, I would have been burned!” One of the Knights fearfully said.
The golden armored knight drew his sword and suddenly stabbed it into the ground.
He then drew his sword out. The tip of the sword was stained with red lava.
The golden armored knight’s expression slowly changed.
The other Knights didn’t know what he was thinking, but they saw that his expression became increasingly grave.
