Lord of Flames - Chapter 44
Chapter 44. Preparations!
“O God, the Centaur Clan is attacking. Qing Ling wants to lead an army to the forest valley and ambush them. This battle is dangerous. Whether or not we encounter enemies, please grant Qing Ling enlightenment.”
In the Divine Hall, Qing Ling stood in front of the altar while dressed in white. Her hands were clasped against her chest as she prayed in a low voice.
Not long after, Qing Ling received a Divine Revelation.
She only received one word.
Then it was a fight!
Just like their last battle with the Black Fox Tribe!
However, the Centaur Clan was much more dangerous than them.
The Centaur’s were a clan, but the Black Fox was only a tribe.*
[TLN: Generally, the term ‘clan’ suggests a closer, tighter bond than the term ‘tribe’. A clan is the constituent of a tribe. To put it another way, a tribe is a collection of clans that are almost always inter-related by blood. ]
The Centaur Race had more people, thus they had more soldiers.
In fact, even the fighting strength of the young Centaurs was far greater than that of the adult Foxes.
This was due to the innate weakness of their body.
However, Qing Ling was extremely confident this time!
The current Fox Race was no longer the same in the past.
More importantly, the Fox Race had a powerful God now!
The mighty Lord of Flames!
The Fox girl received another Revelation. If they failed, then she only had to pray to the Lord of Flames. Once she does so, he would send down his power to help the Fox Race!
This made Qing Ling feel reassured!
With the Flame God’s revelation, the Fox girl, Qing Ling, began gathering the Fox clan warriors and prepare for war.
On the other side, the Centaur Race was also gathering soldiers.
Since the territory of the Centaur race was very large, the gathering of soldiers needed some time.
Despite all this, it would take more than a day for all the warriors of the Centaur Race to gather.
After doing so, they would then march towards the Fox Race.
The Fox Race’s movements were much faster because all of their members were in the Miracle Wasteland.
Qing Ling gathered a total of six thousand elite Fox Clan soldiers.
If all of the Fox Clan members who could fight were to enter the battlefield, they would be able to gather more than ten thousand people.
However, there was no need for this.
Soldiers were expensive.
Moreover, the Miracle Wasteland also needed people to defend their city, the Black Fox warriors in the mine also needed to be guarded.
Most of the people from the Black Fox Tribe were very obedient and began to believe in the Lord of Flames.
However, a few of them had other ideas. Otherwise, the Centaurs wouldn’t have so easily gotten news regarding the Miracle Wasteland from the Black Foxes.
After this battle, Qing Ling was prepared to thoroughly clean up the Black Fox People and scrub up some restless fellows inside!
Before the army entered, some of the Fox warriors were already familiar with the forest and the more powerful ones were fully armed. They were divided into several teams, each team had a magus in them.
Their mission was to sweep the forest clean.
The Foxes were much more familiar with the forest’s geography compared to the Centaurs.
Not long after, more than a dozen enemy spies were killed.
These Fox warriors went all this way just to avoid exposing themselves to their enemies.
Currently, Lin Yan was also watching the battle unfold.
He was using his Eye of Detection to examine the entire forest.
The Fox warriors were indeed very comfortable ‘working’ in the forest.
Wherever they passed, the enemy scouts were all cleaned up.
Following this short skirmish, the six thousand Fox warriors collect enough food and water before setting off.
The food they brought was cooked potatoes.
After these potatoes were cooked, they could be stored for quite some time. They could be carried by each person for several days.
About a day later, all of the Fox warriors were in place.
The location Qing Ling chose for the battle was a canyon.
The six thousand Fox clan soldiers were scattered on both sides of the canyon, quietly waiting for the arrival of the enemy troops.
This was the only way for the Centaurs to reach the Miracle Wasteland!
It was also the best place the Fox Tribe could ambush their enemy.
In order to prevent the location of the army from being exposed, there were still a few teams of magicians staying in the forest. They were on the lookout for any more scouts.
Although there weren’t that many spies, there weren’t few either.
Since the Centaur Clan despised the Fox Race, they still sent out quite a few spies.
However, no matter if it was the Clan Leader, the leaders of the small tribes, or the High Priests, they would never have imagined that the Fox Race would dare set up an ambush for their troops!
As such, they spent more than a day gathering a large number of elite soldiers.
Nearly 8,000 powerful warriors marched towards the Fox clan territory.
Near the canyon, the Fox Race had already prepared everything.
They were only waiting for the enemy troops to arrive!
