The Villains Need to Save the World? - Chapter 345
Manasvir Empire’s capital, Macnadix City’s Imperial City, magical broadcast room . There were now three magical displays broadcasting the situation in Dusk Valley and Cloud Sea Basin for Olsylvia Academy qualifying competition’s qualifiers . The screen originally broadcasting the Forest of the Wild situation had now been replaced with other images .
Due to one of the transmigrated male Saviors, God Chosen Knight Scott had accidentally discovered the hidden area of Dusk Valley, the Crystal Dragon Lair . To earn ratings, the organizers had temporarily transferred all the flying beasts following the girls in the Forest of the Wild to the Crystal Dragon Lair to broadcast the dragon-slaying event .
The crowd was completely oblivious about the stormy battle at the Forest of the Wild . The item used to calculate the score was an energy measuring bracelet worn by each participating student . This magical item could absorb the energy emitted by the demons killed by the students, and based on the strength of that energy, they could determine the strength of the demonic being killed and assign the corresponding score to the student .
Bella and the others were probably almost done when the organizers finally could realize that something strange had befallen . The stormy night scene in the Forest of the Wild was created by a special cover of dark clouds . However, the correct time now was evening here, while it was daylight in Cloud Sea Basin and Dusk Valley .
“To actually be able to discover the hidden secret location, Holy Knight Scott’s score has now surpassed Dragon Knight Shawn and has reached the top ten in the rankings . ”
“I’m still optimistic that Scott can go even further . Perhaps reaching the top five is a possibility!”
In the magical broadcast room, the three beautiful hosts began boasting again . After all, they were beautiful . As long as they didn’t attack other students, they’d be forgiven no matter what they said . The boys ranked in the top ten were either from the Fraternity or the Ironblood Cross Society . Those male Saviors, except for the higher ranking God Chosen Priest Norris – who remained in Doors of Truth, a society backed by the Radiant Church, everyone else went into the Ironblood Cross Society .
God Chosen Knight Scott, God Chosen Mage Adelaide, and God Chosen Swordsman Akmans had already gone to sign up for the Ironblood Cross Society . Besides the Fraternity, the Wronged Angels Society, and the Rose Society, they really could go to whichever society they pleased .
As compared to the Ironblood Cross Society, the male Saviors actually wanted to enter the Rose Society . Basically, all the more famous beauties in Olsylvia Academy were in that society . Even though there were a few legendary “ugly girls” such as Princess Ariel, who was an isolated case . The Rose Society was still generally one of the top three societies in which the boys aspired to get into .
The chairman of the Rose Society, Nina, had already retreated to the background, and the real person in charge was now Bella or Grand Duke Bellina . This Grand Duke was against recruiting boys into the society, and due to her extensive background, the boys had no choice but to give up .
On the display of the magical screen, God Chosen Knight Scott could be seen walking around with his lackeys inside a deep cave tunnel . Since this was a secret area, several bounty hunters who were stationed in Dusk Valley to oversee the situation for the safety of the students followed Scott and his squad as well .
On both sides of the cave tunnel were various mysterious glowing crystals littered all across the walls . The entire place was covered in them, and this seemed to answer the rumors that this cave was indeed inhabited by Crystal Dragons . The Crystal Dragon was a special variant of the dragon according to its classification, and they were not recognized as the same species like the Giant Dragons . The ones in the same category were the Diamond Dragon and the Demonic Emerald Dragon, which shared similar attributes with it .
God Chosen Knight Scott was a little too proud of himself as he walked in the front of his squad with a big, satisfied grin on his face . Now that the other three male Saviors were in Cloud Sea Basin, he was alone . Inside the Crystal Dragon Lair, there was not just one Crystal Dragon inhabiting this place, but multiple . There were also two existences that were not Crystal Dragons, but instead much more terrifying than them . If he knew this, then Scott would have changed his plans and waited for the other male Saviors to come before they considered joining up .
The magical display of the broadcast suddenly shifted violently . It looked as if the flying demonic beasts in charge of recording sensed something terrifying and were fleeing from the location . They all ran off without following their orders . The image was interrupted after a huge purple figure burst out of the cave’s depths as the screens quickly turned black .
This made all the maiden hosts turn silent in an instant . If the screen were cut, it proved that the flying demonic beasts were likely wiped out . That group of flying beasts was transferred over from the Forest of the Wild, but now that they were wiped out in the Crystal Dragon Lair, there would be no extra flying beasts to broadcast the scene in the Forest of the Wild for the next two days .
“This… Nana, I don’t think there’s anything to see in the Forest of the Wild anyway . It’ll be fine!”
“Yeah, you’re right! It’s all short and ugly Goblins there . It’s not as nice to look at as the dragon fights anyway! I completely agree with Yaya’s view, Sasa . ”
“The main point is, the score isn’t high . What sort of score could you get from hunting a bunch of goblins anyway, aren’t I right, everyone?”
Before the three hosts could even finish their mockery, they found that the Grand Duke Councils’ Vice Presidents and male hosts were all looking at the scoring list with incredulous eyes as the ranking list was constantly refreshing .
It turned out that while everyone’s attention was fully focused on the Crystal Dragon Lair’s dragon-slaying broadcast, the scores of Bella, meaning Grand Duke Bellina, and the seven girls were soaring upwards at a rate visible to the naked eye in the scoring list . The speed was comparable to riding a rocket, and from the looks of it, they were currently fighting some sort of beast, and one with a very high score that they could soar up so quickly .
There were no problems with the other girls, but Princess Ariel, Assassin Noreya, and Puppet Master Elaine were known as the ugly and not very powerful types of princesses in the records of each of their Empires . It easily drew suspicion that they were cheating for their scores to swell that quickly, but they didn’t have any spare flying demonic beasts to send to the Forest of the Wild to check what was going on right now .
The female hosts felt as if they had just been slapped in the face at this sight . They just joked that there was probably nothing interesting to see at the Forest of the Wild, but before they could even finish their sentence, they were slapped in the face by the scores Bella and the others .
The scene felt very awkward as it entered a sort of dazed silence . After being stagnant for almost a minute, the magical broadcast screen was finally cut off, not because of what was happening with Bella on that side, but because Savior Scott had actually lost the battle over at the Crystal Lair .
More than a dozen Crystal Dragons rushed out of the lair at once . No matter how brave Savior Scott might be, he still could not withstand the synchronized charge of more than a dozen Crystal Dragons and was quickly defeated . This broadcast image would need to be processed before it could be broadcast . It was impossible for such a brutal scene like this of humans being hung up and beaten to be broadcast live .
It was still raining in the abandoned fortress by the lake of the Forest of the Wild . The army of Dark Goblins was currently trying to attack the girls inside . Due to the special effects of the Magic Mist Rain, the girls in the fortress had fallen under its effects .
Magic Mist Rain is one of the evil magic, but this could only be considered a basic level of it as it could only drain the energy of humans . If this were an intermediate or advanced level, then the rain’s effects would turn straight into a strong acid rain . In that case, humans who were rained on by this magical rain would quickly melt away just as if they were being doused with acid .
The Dark Goblin Commander of this army of ten thousand goblins was Goblin Marshal Lurban . Lurban had a smug face of confidence . Its fat body was a little girthy as a row of rings decorating its fingers symbolized its achievements in battle . In its opinion, though the mages in the fortress were several times stronger than the girls on the other side of the lake, as long as they were humans, they would still be affected by the Magic Mist Rain . Once they were down, even a strong mage at the level of a Holy Magic Mentor couldn’t do anything but accept defeat .
However, Lurban was soon unable to keep up that smile . There were actually people in the fortress who hadn’t been downed by the Magic Mist Rain . Amidst a roar, a huge dinosaur-looking demonic being appeared in front of the fortress . Its shape resembled that of the Tyrannosaurus Rex from the age of dinosaurs back on Earth . This was the mount currently used by Dragon Knight Lisha, “Dark Tyrant” Dragon . It could also be considered one of Bella’s special gifts to her younger sister Lisha!
Due to the Magic Mist Rain effects, it wasn’t suitable to summon a holy attribute dragon, such as Golden Dragon Princess Laceman’s mount . It would be strongly affected if it came out . The “Dark Tyrant Dragon” belonged to the dark sub-dragon species and would not be affected by this Magic Mist Rain . This huge dinosaur carried Dragon Knight Lisha on its back and charged towards the center of the Dark Goblins’ square formation that was currently trudging forth .
“Dark Tyrant Dragon? What’s going on over here? Aren’t demonic beings like those a big problem for humans? To think someone’s actually using it!”
“Quickly set up a spear formation, that guy isn’t that intelligent . ”
After seeing the Dark Tyrant Dragon on the opposite side, the relaxed expression on Goblin Marshal Lurban’s face was gone and was replaced by dismay and fear . Darkness could only be dealt with by darkness . No matter how strong these Dark Goblins were, they also belonged to the dark demonic beings group and, like other dark demonic beings, were affected by dark demonic beings’ rankings . The Dark Tyrant Dragon was clearly above the Dark Goblins, so using it to deter these lower-ranked demonic beings was the best choice .
When faced with the Dark Tyrant Dragon’s advance, the Dark Goblin army was so frightened that they threw down their armor and fled . The Dark Goblin Warriors at the front of the formation all raised their spears in unison . Countless sharp spearheads were held forward, facing the direction of the Dark Tyrant Dragon’s charge .
The Dark Tyrant Dragon wasn’t too intelligent, but that was different when someone commanded its fighting power . Under Dragon Knight Lisha’s command, the Dark Tyrant Dragon suddenly leaped as soon as it was about to arrive in front of the Dark Goblin’s spears, passing the frontmost line of goblins and crushed a few unfortunate Dark Goblin Warriors alive under its feet . Then, it swung its tail, sweeping the area and instantly wiping out the Dark Goblin Warriors that were within its range .
Bella took advantage of the chaos to charge into the Dark Goblin army to clean them off . Many Dark Goblin Warriors were killed off by her iron fist gloves before they even had the chance to fight back . With the extremely hard iron fist gloves and the explosive physical strength of a Demon King’s physique, Bella punched through the Dark Goblin Warriors and killed them .
Assassin Noreya’s image kept on flashing behind Bella’s back . She would find the right moment to strike every so often, killing the Dark Goblin Warriors who were trying to sneak attack on Bella . Kriss was also positioned close to the area where the Dark Tyrant Dragon was active . She mainly cut down the Dark Goblin Warriors while brandishing her sword .
There weren’t many girls participating in the blockade, but they managed to achieve victory with the Dark Tyrant Dragon helping them hold the scene . The Dark Goblin Warriors were intimidated by the Dark Tyrant Dragon’s imposingness and never dared to come too close, allowing Bella and the others to keep on attacking . A large number of Dark Goblin Warriors were cut down as their score was constantly rising .
In the far rear of the fortress’s position, the mages providing long-range support weren’t idle either . In the cover of the night, Puppet Master Elaine set up a number of silk puppet threads in front of the fortress’s fence, and many of the Dark Goblin Warriors tripped as soon as they arrived just like fish caught in the net before they were shot down by the light attribute magic, “Arrow of Light . ” The remaining mage, Ariel, kept her eyes closed while meditating as a sign that she was about to cast an ultimate move .
The fight was brutal, and the ground was littered all over with the corpses of the Dark Goblins . They were either beaten to a bloody pulp or cut into tiny pieces . The front of the fortress was also littered with their bodies . After being hit by the light magic arrows, there was no way anyone could be revived .
Several of the melee professions on Bella’s side were well-decorated . Even though they weren’t injured, the armors they wore were almost destroyed by their weapons . Especially Holy Knight Bella, her heavy outer armor had already been shattered by the Dark Goblins’ weapons, leaving behind the tight-fitting mithril scale armor as a remnant of her inner armor .
Dragon Knight Lisha jumped down from the Dark Tyrant Dragon’s back later to draw attention and deal damage on the battlefield alongside Bella . The dark red blood of the Dark Goblins had already stained their armor red, but fortunately, the rain was there to wash away some of it . Otherwise, Bella and the others would look miserable .
“Don’t these lassies get tired?! Suppress them quickly, damn it! Why aren’t the reinforcements coming yet?!”
The Goblin Marshal’s face was filled with fury . They were a goblin army numbering in the tens of thousands, but they were stopped by a few girls just in front of the fortress’s entrance and have already lost thousands of Dark Goblin Warriors . Most of the Goblin elite assault force acting as the vanguard dressed in full heavy armor was wiped out by the combination of the Dark Tyrant Dragon and its rider Dragon Knight Lisha, while the rest of them didn’t even have the time to retreat before they were cleaned up by Bella .
They lost so many Dark Goblin Warriors, yet the enemy didn’t lose a single unit . Not even the demon generals with worse skill than Goblin Marshal Lurban have ever gotten such embarrassing results . Goblin Marshal Lurban, who was already red-eyed from this loss, ordered for Bella and the others in their way to be killed, as he had ignored the fatal problem of the reinforcements being late to show up .
Bella and the others began retreating backward . At this moment, Mage Ariel’s magical support finally arrived . A cold stream of magic passed by, freezing the group of Dark Goblin Warriors around Bella and the others with precision . The rain was also dripping down on the bodies of the Dark Goblin Warriors, and those droplets of water were what Ariel used to freeze them into ice sculptures .
After this wide-range ice magic, a large number of frozen Dark Goblin Warrior sculptures were added to the battlefield . The momentum that the originally imposing army of the Dark Goblin Warriors had maintained was all suppressed by this magic . As the two sides reached a standstill, reinforcements from Bella’s side had finally arrived .
A large group of skeletons with pale white figures rushed over from behind the Dark Goblin Army and were just as heavily armored as them as they were wearing similar grades of equipment from the Dark Goblin Warriors . The difference was that half of the skeleton regiment consisted of skeleton cavalry, and they were at the very front, charging over on their white bone steeds . Behind the skeleton cavalry was a large number of heavy skeleton infantry charging together in a formation .
“Where did these strange troops come from?! Damn it, we are being played with…That light is…!”
When he saw how bad things were looking, Goblin Marshal Lurban quickly gave the order to retreat . The Dark Goblin army was mainly infantry based on a lack of cavalry troops . They could have used the spear formation to counter the cavalry, but they were all facing Bella’s side . Unable to change directions quickly, the skeleton cavalry was able to catch onto their weak spot from behind . This sneak attack caught the Dark Goblins completely off guard .
An arrow flashed past Dark Goblin Marshal Lurban’s eyes, and that was the last thing it saw . Assassin Noreya had been staring at that marshal for a long time, and taking advantage of the chaos in the Dark Goblin army, she took out her crossbow and popped Lurban’s head with a single arrow . After Lurban was hit, it fell off of its command chariot . The arrow that continued to fly for some distance also knocked down the Dark Goblin Marshal’s flag .
The charge of the skeleton cavalry had torn through the Dark Goblins’ already weak line of defense . The large number of heavily armed skeleton infantry that followed after killing a large number of Dark Goblin Warriors with their spear formation . The battlefield had now turned from a blockade to an encounter . Armies consisting of tens of thousands of demonic beings were fighting chaotically under the stormy night as Bella’s personal demon familiar, Demon World Princess Diaz, finally came to the rescue with the army of tens of thousands of skeletons .
The Dark Goblin army was being attacked from both sides, and the way to the fortress was also blocked by the bodies of the Dark Goblin Warriors who were frozen in ice . They were quickly defeated . After the death of their commander, Marshal Lurban, the Dark Goblin army ended up scattering without their leader as the skeleton army was able to obtain victory in the stormy conflict . Even though it was an opportunistic attack, it was still a win .
“Mistress Bella, your subordinate is late . Many apologies for the delay…”
“Diaz, why were you so slow in summoning the skeletons? Are you expecting some special education from me afterward?”
“No, mistress . The camp on the other side of the lake… There were lightning attribute demonic beings . I wasn’t able to lead them past quickly enough and delayed the attack . ”
