Chapter 598: Plunderer (2)
The mercenaries never realized that it was all because of the high-level demon in the leading carriage.
If they were to know that, then no one would be in a good mood.
Day in and day out, they hurried forward.
It was two days and two nights before the team entered the depths of the eastern part of Forsaken Land.
They finally caught a glimpse of those neglected cities in the distance.
A place where the demons used to gather, it had become beyond all recognition after the war.
The demons had destroyed many of the cities into ruins.
Shen Yanxiao ran into a group of people when they were about to arrive at the destination.
It was a team with about three to four hundred people.
It was not rare to see demons in the Forsaken Land, but it was quite uncommon to see humans there.
Those people were stationed in the woods.
They had set up camp and built up a bonfire.
One after another, they went in and out of a cave not far from there.
They pushed trailers to transport many dark minerals out of the cave.
Shen Yanxiao asked her team to stop.
She got off from the carriage and observed that group of people.
“What are they doing” Shen Yanxiao asked Uncle Nine as she watched those people.
Uncle Nine explained, “They are mining.
The Forsaken Land may have been deserted for a long time, but this is the land with the most abundant resources in the whole Brilliance Continent.
All four countries wanted to explore this land for the bottomless supply of resources.
Look at the stones that they loaded onto the trailers.
Those are called the obsidians.
Obsidians are quite rare in Brilliance Continent, and weapons cast with obsidians are extremely strong.
If obsidian are used to build city walls, it will never crack even if one bombard it with magic and cannons for months.”
Shen Yanxiao raised her eyebrows.
She did not expect such a dangerous place to store the richest treasures in the Brilliance Continent.
However, she was curious about something else.
“The eastern part of the Forsaken Land falls within the Longxuan Empires jurisdiction.
I know that all Inter-academy Tournaments winners would have to leave within two to three months after arriving here.
We should be the only Longxuan Empire team around here.
So, where did those people come from” Shen Yanxiao asked with a smile.
Uncle Nine answered, “Judging by their clothes, I dont think they are from the Longxuan Empire.
They must be from one of the other three countries.”
Shen Yanxiao sneered.
“Are they assuming that those from the Longxuan Empire are push-overs How dare they breach into my territory”
The four countries had reached an agreement.
Since the Forsaken Land could not be fully explored within any time soon, they had divided the land between the four countries according to their locations in the east, south, west, and north, respectively.
According to the agreements, people from other countries should not invade the area that belonged to the Longxuan Empire, even if they had no one to reclaim the resources.
However, it looked like she had witnessed someone stealing her resources when she had only stepped into her territory.
That was a brazen plunder!
“Do not act on impulse.
The other three countries have built their foundation in the Forsaken Land, and we have yet to build our city.
If we were to confront them right now, we would be at a disadvantage.” When he noticed that Shen Yanxiao was angered, Uncle Nine comforted her immediately.
Shen Yanxiao sneered.
“Am I supposed to watch someone take my stuff right under my nose and not do anything about it Can I not say that I am angry Must I endure it without protest”
“For now… that is the only way.” Uncle Nine sighed.
Everyone knew that the Longxuan Empire had fallen behind in their progress at the Forsaken Land.
