Chapter 50. Tensions Are High! Lynn Invites the Enemy to Attack the City!
The seventeen hundred points Lynn received today plus the left over ten points from a few days ago were just enough to evolve nineteen half beast warriors. Lynn used up all of the points, and now there were nineteen half wolf fighters over three meters tall. The race of wolves this time around were the Blood Wolves, whose iconic feature was their red hair. This gave them a fierce presence, but they were all loyal to Lynn.
Lynn let them test out their strength and agility. Their performances were very good as they were a little more agile and possessed similar strength compared to the Silver Wolf warriors. Lynn let the new warriors join in the work. Lynn’s army would expand in a rapid manner the next few days, and with the addition of the carrier pigeons messages would be delivered incrementally faster.
On Rau’s side of things, the construction of the wall was progressing smoothly. With the addition of Lynn’s gold coins, the repairs were happening with much more haste, but it would still take at least two more months before the wall would be fully repaired. Moreover, a lot of spies had been spotted near Maple Leaf observing the city. Rau had sent people and confirmed that they were from Kumori.
Rau had sent a letter to Lynn that stated how nervous he was as the warriors he had under his control were not enough to face an army of a thousand people. Fifty warriors was a pathetic number that had no deterrent effect even with their impressive combat effectiveness. Lynn only issued an order to dissuade Rau’s fears.
“Hoard weapons and armor. If Kumori sends a declaration of war, Fenglin Village will join in the fight!”
Theresa also took the initiative and sent some news to Lynn.
“The situation is more troublesome than I imagined,” the letter read. “The Northern Aristocracy asked me to stop sending you so much protection. Moreover, Earl Tejulen wrote me a letter asking me to stop being so partial to my subordinates. Lynn, I am afraid that I cannot stop Kumori from challenging you. If there is no chance of winning, you can refuse the battle.”
Lynn replied with a simple letter.
“If anyone wants a fight, I will give them a fight.”
After responding to the letter, Lynn stepped away from the blacksmiths’ domain in order to let them work. After ten days passed by, Lynn had turned all of the Blood Wolves into rank three half beast warriors. The number of able-bodied soldiers in the legions suddenly expanded. More than two hundred warriors were standing together, which gave an immensely powerful presence.
Hammer worked his best and built sixty epees for Lynn, but he was at his limits. In this world it was difficult to forge without magic. Lynn’s mana value had also grown rapidly, as he had tested it two days ago and saw that it had exceeded 3,000. By now, it should have reached 3,150 points.
The atmosphere of war gradually rose as Kumori followed Lynn’s method of attack and wedged a stronghold not that far from Maple Leaf City with twenty siege vehicles approaching. Their army slowly began to gather, and it became apparent that the scale of the war was bigger. Kumori was well prepared and had received a lot of help as their legion was expected to reach 1,500 soldiers. All of them were fully equipped. Their army included 300 cavalry, 300 archers, 300 pikemen, and 400 heavy infantry.
From a distance, the enemy appeared like one unit and occupied a high point. Also, Lynn was unaware of the fact that the Kumori family had hidden an expert assassin with a mana count of 5,000 points. Many nobles were interested in this war – interested in watching how Lynn would die.
Lynn’s methods were cruel, so any soldiers that he could have gained were killed off in the last war. This meant that there were only fifty warriors in Maple Leaf City. There was a great disparity in strength.
Three days after the tense air of war became dense, Lynn’s army also arrived on scene. The moment 313 half beast warriors appeared, all of the nobles were stupefied. Where did Lynn come from?! The situation appeared to grow different in an instant as Lynn’s weak looking legion grew immediately.
Even though the legions army was numbered less at 363, they were three meters tall with a strong atmosphere among them. Lynn also followed the legion and Lucy too followed with them into Maple Leaf City. Rau greeted Lynn and quickly reported the situation.
“We have bought a lot of weapons and equipment. The merchants were very fond of you and were willing to cooperate with you in order to win this war. I have bought two hundred and forty sets of armor and weapons, spending three hundred and fifty gold coins in total.”
Maple Leaf’s income for the first month had miraculously not dropped. Two hundred gold was collected from the city, plus the four hundred and fifty gold given to him by Lynn, Rau had enough money to do everything.
Lynn left to check on the weapons and armor. Their quality seemed to be average as it looked to be forged from relatively poor iron ore, but for this war it would not be a problem. Lynn asked the half beasts to start distributing the equipment. They became excited and began to put on their armor and arm themselves with a heavy sword, and started to test out their equipment.
“They are not heavy enough. It is not good enough to strike the enemy with, Master Lynn. These swords are worse than the ones made in our territory,” a beast stated.
“I feel like I can kill a hundred enemies!” Said a warrior in contrast to the last.
“When will the fighting start! I can’t wait!”
This was a bit strange to say, but Lynn’s legion could not wait to fight against the enemy whose numbers were five times greater than theirs. This was Lynn’s legion, all right. Lynn was also a little confused. Why can you not fight? The army of Kumori had yet to send over a war declaration, so Lynn thought for a while and then wrote a declaration by himself! He has invited the enemy to attack the city!
