Chapter 39 The Dominance of the Magician’s Battlefield! Kill the Opponent’s Commander!
Lynn was engrossed in the battlefield and did not rush to make a move. Lynn currently did not have a wide range magic as Starfire Fury could only hit four or five troops at a time. Its impact on this battlefield was not large enough. Lynn had already learned long before the war even started that the spell would best be used on the enemy commander. Lynn was currently looking for such a person. Right then, Ino was on the wall and commented nervously in a hushed voice.
“Come on…Abboud! Show them your martial arts!”
However, at that moment Abboud was fighting for his life against a half beast warrior. In terms of skill, he had an advantage. However, in terms of power there was not an insignificant gap against the warrior who had evolved four times. Also, as the heavy cavalry could not charge their strength was greatly weakened.
The beast warrior attacked with his sword causing Abboud to dismount and roll over. If he could not charge, it would be more convenient to dismount and fight. He held a heavy sword and confronted the half beast warrior, yet he was still under assault. So he dodged and deceived the beast, then slashed sideways with his sword.
The warrior reacted quickly and blocked the death strike with its arm. Blood splattered everywhere as the warrior suffered a massive loss. At this point, the enemy heavy infantry also entered the fray. In terms of numbers, the half beast army had defeated hundreds of enemy troops, but the siege was still continuing.
Currently, Abboud and three other soldiers who were good at martial arts were the main threats to the warriors. They should already be fourth order soldiers, so the situation of the battle seemed to have changed yet again as the warriors struggled to face them.
“Lord Lynn put up a good fight, but unfortunately the war was started too hastily. If he fought again next year his legion would have been larger and stronger. He may have been able to win then.”
“It is a pity that the Sla family is also very powerful. If it was not for those strong warriors, Master Lynn would have won.”
“There are no maybes in a war. You either win or lose. If Lynn cannot figure out how to deal with the enemy soldiers, then he will lose. He obviously has no such means, though.”
The nobles continued their incessant chatter, but Lynn had already found his goal. His mana began to surge as a fireball with a diameter of five or six meters began to slowly emerge.
“A fireball?! How could it be? How could he be able to use magic?!”
“No, that is not a fireball! This is much more than Fireball.”
The nobles were amazed, while Ino quickly understood Lynn’s goal. He shouted across the wall, but there was no sound to his voice. Even if it could be passed on, it was already too late. Through Lynn’s constant reflection over his mistakes his magic had grown extremely proficient, and he released an amazing spell. It was fast!
By the time Abboud could react Lynn’s Starfire Fury would have already hit him. Abboud turned away and ran, but the spell kept getting closer and closer to him. His only saving grace was that a magician’s weakness was that the further away a spell is from the caster, the more it weakened in strength. This made it possible to avoid a spell.
Abboud was an experienced fighter but just as he thought he had escaped, Starfire Fury suddenly came into view! Lynn had practiced magic in actual combat, so he knew that the enemy would try and hide to escape the spell’s reach. So, he had already started practicing his control of the magic.
The process was very bitter and time consuming and also used a lot of mana, but the final result allowed for Lynn’s control of Starfire Fury to become amazing in reach.
“No! How could this be possible?! I surrender! Cast-”
His words were cut off as the Starfire Fury exploded. Abboud became a scorched corpse in an instant. All of the nobles were shocked and could not muster a sound. Lynn’s control with magic was beyond their imaginations. Even more so, Lynn’s death blows on the battlefield were so fierce that they started to sweat in fear.
Ino had fallen into a slump on the wall, and as Abboud was killed his legion fell into a panic. Without the commander, the legion’s combat effectiveness would be greatly reduced. Lynn’s legion was also shocked after feeling the power of his attack. Lynn had succeeded in delivering the killing blow, but he did not feel proud and suppressed his excitement. He then began to target the second highest ranking warrior.
The opponent noticed Lynn’s movements and gave up the frontal attack as they wanted to kill Lynn. If the magician did not die, their end was inevitable. Even though the next high ranking soldier was wearing heavy armor, his skill was extraordinary with a long sword. It gave Lynn a sense of danger, yet he did not move.
Two half beast warriors moved to intercept the ranked soldier who had made a fatal flaw. His mind had become absorbed with Lynn and he had forgotten to be wary of his surroundings. In response, Lynn looked for the next ranked soldier and aimed his magic at them. The powerful magic made a direct impact as another scorched corpse appeared. There was no suspense in Lynn’s magic.
The magician’s overwhelming dominance on the battlefield was manifested by Lynn’s hands. WIth a total of six spells, Lynn had killed six of the strongest enemy soldiers. The outcome of the battle had become obvious by now. With no high ranking soldiers, the remaining enemy troops were basically crushed.
The half beast warriors fought harder and harder and almost all of them were covered in blood. They appeared crazy with a powerful strength. Lynn had won a massive victory, as the enemy’s casualties exceeded two thirds of their entire army. The slaughter had just begun.
“Kill them all!” Ordered Lynn. “Leave no survivors!”
