Chapter 577: A Miracle City (Part Two)
Hazel Bank and Jessie, who represented darkness and brightness respectively, stood behind Fei quietly.
The Undead Mage had stabilized his Sun-Class Realm, and he now had complete control of his aura. Even without the god-fooling badges, Jessie who was standing about a meter away couldn’t detect Hazel Bank’s real identity. If this mage weren’t in battle, others wouldn’t be able to tell that he was an undead mage.
Although Jessie was severely injured in battle not long ago, one of the unique abilities of the holy power was to heal people. Jessie was an outstanding priest; as long as he wasn’t dead, he could recover from any severe external injuries in a day or so.
Even though the Undead Mage had lived for hundreds of years and saw a lot of big events and the Priest experienced a variety of emotions during his ascetic lifestyle, they both felt strange hearing the loud cheers coming from tens of thousands of people.
These two people were all unique in their own ways, and they could see through people. They saw the crazy passion and admiration in these people’s eyes, and they could tell that it was a strong power. Once ignited, these citizens would be willing to do anything to help their king defeat their enemies.
The two masters of different backgrounds got the same first impression of Chambord.
This celebration ended after about 40 minutes had passed.
According to the plan set by Bast and others, there was going to be a grand celebration in the evening, officially welcoming the king and the military’s return.
When people got to the foot of the defense wall, a series of chanting and metal gear-gliding sounds appeared. Then, a portal-like light gate appeared in front of everyone. After it sounded like a metal fence was pulled up, the people started to walk into the light gate and were instantly teleported into the city.
The soldiers and warriors who just returned were all surprised and understood why there was no gate anymore; this teleportation mechanism took care of everything.
This mechanism was a simple short-distance teleportation array that was also recorded in [Demon King’s Wisdom]. In the Mythical Era, this array was commonly used; even small villages used it. However, as that era came to an end, most of the magic technologies went extinct.
Akara and Cain consulted [Demon King’s Wisdom] and recreated such a teleportation array, upgrading Chambord’s defense.
Standing on [The Throne of Chaos] that was placed on Blacky’s back, Fei and Angela traveled through the familiar yet strange streets.
The Chambord Castle was huge to begin with.
The Chambordians didn’t create it; instead, it was an ancient city from previous eras that was discovered by the ancestors of the Chambordians. The design of the city was beyond Chambord’s current knowledge and capabilities, and this half reconstruction and half renovation project made the city feel brand-new.
Fei could tell that the Chambord Castle underwent some significant changes.
Every 100 meters or so, there would be a secret location with a ton of magic energy surge, and the magic energy surge in the city was several times more powerful compared with before. Huge magic arrays protected every region of the city; there were a total of nine small altars and 36 magic towers that were more than ten meters tall. Magic engravings connected everything, offering Chambord its own unique magic defense system.
With this new defense system, if there were enough magic energy, the black-armored enemies wouldn’t be able to get a speck of dust off the defense wall of Chambord in 50 years.
Except for the new magic defense system, there were other new structures in the city.
Every 1,000 meters or so, there would be a small barrack that was tightly guarded and well equipped with powerful weapons.
Around the barracks, there were gigantic military crossbows called [Dragon Slayers]. They were also from [Demon King’s Wisdom], and they were created by the beautiful blacksmith from Diablo World, Charis, with the help from the blacksmiths in Chambord.
These [Dragon Slayers] only occupied a space about ten square meters each, and they were mobile. They were magic weapons that were powered by the magic gems inlaid in the bodies of the crossbows, and about five to six ordinary soldiers could operate one with ease! The huge magic arrows it could shoot out were capable of instantly killing anyone who was below Five-Star in strength.
Fei also discovered that there were stealth monitoring stations on the sides of the mountains, capable of view the city and the plain outside of the city.
On the two sides of the streets, there were many beautiful stone statues. These statues existed before the renovation, but they were modified and now behaved like street lights. The silver light from the magic lanterns inside these statues dispelled the darkness like the moonlight.
These statues were everywhere around the city, illuminating the Chambord Castle.
When Fei looked around more, he even discovered things like manholes, public washrooms, and magic traffic control lights.
If it weren’t for the exotic stone buildings and statues, Fei would think that he was back to his previous life where technologies were advanced.
After the renovation that was ordered by Fei, the Chambord Castle was now already a miracle city on this continent; nothing like it could be found.
