Year 3793, it was a year that was destined not to be peaceful.
First at the beginning of the year, the Magicians Guild declared that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was a company that they wouldn’t welcome, listing it as one of the companies all magicians on the continent should avoid.
This had only happened four times in the thousands of years of history of the Magicians Guild and each company had performed a great evil, becoming companies that were besmirched on the entire continent, so the Magicians Guild’s actions were justified.
But this time the Magicians Guild was targeting the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, a company that had never done anything wrong and had good relationships with many countries, which everyone praised, so naturally countless people on the continent had questioned this.
What really shocked everyone was the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s later actions.
Normally speaking, if a company is being targeted by the Magicians Guild like this, their first choice was to think of a way to reconcile because the Magicians Guild influence was just too big, there weren’t any advantages in going against them.
But the Frestech Chamber of Commerce didn’t give the Magicians Guild any face. They announced that they would break off from the Magicians Guild and even invaded the Mana Magic Kingdom, a special country that had the backing of the Magicians Guild.
Moreover…..they had won!
When people still hadn’t digested all these shocking pieces of news, there was another one that made everyone of the continent lose their voice from their cries of shock.
Levin Hasko and Sarandal Clay, two Arch Magi who had been famous on the continent for a long time worked together to attack the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base, but they were repelled in the end.
Arch Magus Sarandal Clay had been repelled, returning to the Mana Magic Kingdom and had been hiding in his magic tower, healing himself the entire time.
As for Levin Hasko who had gone with him…..he had died!
According to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s announcement, when Arch Magus Levin Hasko attacked the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base, he received the counter attack of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and finally died.
When this news was spread, not only all the magicians, all the normal people of the continent were shocked.
He was an Arch Magus! How could he die?
But after the Frestech Chamber of Commerce release the recordings of Arch Magus Levin Hasko and Arch Magus Sarandal Clay attacking the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base, as well as showing the Doomsday Elf Ring that had always been kept by Arch Magus Levin Hasko, the doubts in the minds of most people had changed to confirmation.
Arch Magus Levin Hasko was indeed dead, otherwise with his power as an Arch Magus, who could steal the Doomsday Elf Ring from his hands?
But compared to the Doomsday Elf Ring, everyone cared about another issue.
Had Arch Magus Levin Hasko really been killed by the countless white beams in the recording that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had released?
Although based on the recording, the countless white beams had immense power, Levin Hasko was an Arch Magus in the end. Even if he couldn’t resist this terrifying attack, at least he could dodge it, so why was he killed by them?
This didn’t seem to make sense.
However, when the Frestech Chamber of Commerce announced this, whether it was Arch Magus Sarandal Clay who had gone with him to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base or the Mana Magic Kingdom, neither of them had released a response.
So most people understood that this information was most likely real.
However, once people had confirmed this, the entire Sines Continent fell into an uproar again.
The last time that an Arch Magus had fallen was already a thousand years ago.
They never thought that a thousand years later, there would be another Arch Magus that would fall.
What shocked people even more was that the one this Arch Magus faced wasn’t the legendary Great Magus or even another Arch Magus, rather it was a Great Magician and a bunch of his subordinates!
It was known that the higher the difference in rank between magicians, the greater the disparity.
The gap between a Great Magician and normal magicians already couldn’t be crossed and an Arch Magus, it was even on a higher scale compared to the Great Magician.
In theory, not to mention a Great Magician leading a bunch of subordinates, even ten Great Magicians wouldn’t be able to pose any threat to an Arch Magus.
Even if it was a hundred Great Magicians, they could suppress an Arch Magus, but it was basically impossible to kill one.
Or perhaps to put it more simply, with the fact that there was no Great Magus on the continent, unless an Arch Magus wanted to kill himself, there was no one who could kill him.
This was why Arch Magi were what every country on the continent wanted to win over, as well as the most powerful weapons that countries used to deter other countries.
Although Arch Magus couldn’t participate in invasion wars, that didn’t limit them to moving personally.
This time Levin Hasko and Sarandal Clay could attack the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base because of this.
They were two Arch Magi of the Mana Magic Kingdom and if it wasn’t for the Mana Magic Kingdom being attacked by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, how could they come and attack the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base, as well as try to kill the chairman Xu Yi without any reason?
It was clear that the Mana Magic Kingdom pulled the strings, or rather the Magicians Guild that was behind the Mana Magic Kingdom.
However…...Sarandal Clay was repelled and Levin Hasko was killed.
No one believed that Levin Hasko would kill himself, so the only explanation was that he couldn’t escape the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s attack.
This fact…...was something that no one could believe.
How did the Frestech Chamber of Commerce do this?
If this was true, didn’t that mean that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce could also kill other Arch Magi?
If the Frestech Chamber of Commerce really could kill other Arch Magi, the meaning behind that…...would just be too terrifying.
There were some people who remembered the Frestech Chamber of Commerce suddenly attacking the Mana Magic Kingdom.
People had thought that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was too stupid, not considering the consequences of this at all.
Even if the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards had defeated the Mana Magic Kingdom’s powerful Glorious Regiment, the Mana Magic Kingdom had five Arch Magi.
These five Arch Magi wouldn’t follow the Mana Magic Kingdom’s armies to invade other countries, but they could take action to retaliate against the Frestech Chamber of Commerce in secret and no one would say anything about this.
But now that the news that Arch Magus Levin Hasko had been killed by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, everyone noticed that the actions of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce invading the Mana Magic Kingdom was most likely a plan!
The Frestech Chamber of Commerce was already prepared to kill an Arch Magus which was why they did this, causing the retaliation from the Mana Magic Kingdom which led to Arch Magus Levin Hasko falling.
So now the problem was, what method had the Frestech Chamber of Commerce used to kill Arch Magus Levin Hasko? They could kill one Arch Magus, did that mean that they could kill other Arch Magi?
Or perhaps the Frestech Chamber of Commerce only had the ability to kill one Arch Magus and couldn’t withstand another one?
However, no one was willing to confirm this.
Only Arch Magi were qualified to confirm this and there were only twenty eight of them on the continent. Now that Arch Magus Levin Hasko had fallen, there were only twenty seven of them left and one of them was Arch Magus Camilla who would stand with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
Of the remaining twenty six Arch Magi, which one of them would risk their lives to confirm this? Also who could force an Arch Magus to risk to live to confirm this?
No one knew the answer to this question, they only knew that after the news of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce killing Arch Magus Levin Hasko spread, the Candra Empire and the Marlow Empire had signed new agreements with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
No one knew the specifics, but it was was clear that in the two agreements that the two empires signed with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, they gave the Frestech Chamber of Commerce many favourable conditions.
Because after this, there were countless Frestech Chamber of Commerce staff and magic machines that entered the two empires in waves.
After the two empires, all the countries on the continent had submitted an application to cooperate with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
This time, it wasn’t the Frestech Chamber of Commerce discussing terms with these countries, but rather the Frestech Chamber of Commerce inspecting each of these countries and deciding whether to cooperate with them, as well as how to cooperate.
Aside from these countries, the normal people responded even faster.
Although the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s household magic machine sales kept increasing each year, once this news was spread, orders came from all over the continent to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
With all these orders, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce maintained their original production rate, so these orders were enough to keep them producing for three years.
In the countries that had started their magic machine industries, other than the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, the products of the other companies that came with them were also very popular. However, after this news was spread, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s products became the most popular.
To everyone, being able to buy something from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce wasn't just to satisfy their needs, but also it became an honour.
A company that could kill an Arch Magus, their skills in magic machines would far surpass the other companies.
There wasn’t much logic behind this, it was just the thoughts that many normal people had.
So after the news that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce killed Arch Magus Levin Hasko spread, in just the latter half of year 3793, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had been like a wave that couldn’t be stopped that quickly spread across the entire continent.
Some people were happy about this, some people were worried, and most people were helpless.
For many people, although the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was only a company, they were already like a new empire that couldn’t be stopped.
There would be a day where they would become a true empire and rule over the continent.
