“It’s the Stantine Duchy in front?” Chalon looked at the coast in the distance with narrowed eyes as he asked this.
“Yes, Lord Chalon. We’re not far from the coast now, we’ll reach Count Dole’s territory soon.” The one standing beside him was a kind looking slightly chubby middle aged man who respectfully replied when he heard this.
“It’s a pity that this place isn’t his territory anymore.” Chalon coldly said.
“Yes, yes, yes, Count Dole is currently in the Stantine Duchy jail and his private territory was already taken back by the Stantine Duchy congress.” The middle aged man said with a smile.
Chalon turned with a serious look and said, “I heard that all the territories of your Stantine Duchy nobles were all taken back by the congress?”
The middle aged man revealed an awkward look, “Yes, it was all taken back last year. So the place in front of us is called Count Dole’s territory, but it’s just the territory that he owned before.”
“Why would you agree?” Chalon asked him in a curious voice, “Count Andre, a territory is something that is more important to a noble than his life. But the Stantine Duchy congress took it back and you agreed?”
The middle aged man named Count Andre gave a bitter smile before saying with a sigh, “What could we do if we didn’t agree? That fellow Xu Yi forced this and if we didn’t agree, what was waiting for us was definitely the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards.”
Hearing Count Andre mention the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards, Chalon’s expression became a bit more serious. After thinking for a bit, he asked in a deep voice, “Are the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards very strong?”
Count Andre suddenly trembled. His eyes had a bit of fear as he said with a strong nod, “Very strong, truly strong! Lord Chalon, with all due respect, although the subordinates you’ve brought are all elites…..if you are facing the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards, please be careful.”
Chalon slightly knitted his brows. He turned back to look at his subordinates gathered on the deck, feeling a bit uncertain.
Although before setting off, he had obtained a large amount of information on the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, there were few pieces of information that talked about the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards.
The only thing that showed the battle strength of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards was when they made a move against the nobles of the Stantine Duchy.
Because there wasn’t enough information, Chalon didn’t know the situation.
From the result, the guards of the Stantine Duchy’s nobles were unable to resist the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards, allowing them the absolute rights to control the Stantine Duchy.
But to Chalon, this result didn’t show anything.
Because the nobles of the Stantine Duchy were only bumpkins to Chalon. The guards of these nobles were just fellows that were a bit stronger than normal people, without any training or full sets of equipment. How could there be any battle strength?
So based on this, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards being able to crush the Stantine Duchy nobles didn’t show any battle strength. It just showed that they could be considered a normal army.
After thinking about it, Chalon shook his head.
“Forget it, no matter how strong they are, they are just the guards of a small company. They can’t be that strong.”
Although Chalon had been cautious in front of Duke Windsor before, advising Duke Windsor to be more serious about the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, he didn’t actually really put the Frestech Chamber of Commerce in his eyes.
In the end, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was only a small company in this small duchy, how could they be as powerful as the subordinates of the Lord Governor of the Candra Empire’s southern province.
Chalon looked at Duke Windsor’s guards covered in full armour with sharp weapons and he revealed a faint smile.
The Lord Duke had given him three thousand of his most elite subordinates and under his direction, not to mention a small Frestech Chamber of Commerce, he could easily sweep through the entire Stantine Duchy.
The most important thing was that he was very certain the Frestech Chamber of Commerce wouldn’t really dare to make a move against him.
The matter of Count Dole, although the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had made a move, they didn’t kill a single one of the duchess’ subordinates. It meant that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had some scruples in their hearts.
“Hei, seeing all the elites that I brought, if that chairman Xu of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce is smart, his only choice is to obediently listen to me.”
The ten ships that carried Chalon and the three thousand elite soldiers of Duke Windsor gradually approached the shore with the sea breeze.
This was a small port under Count Andre’s control and it was very remote, so the arrival of these ten ships didn’t attract any attention.
Chalon brought his three thousand elite troops off the ship and immediately set off.
According to the plan, he would enter Count Dole’s private manor with the three thousand elite troops first and after seizing it, they would settle there and slowly negotiate with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
However, as soon as they came out of the harbour by the cliff, they met a group of around three hundred people.
Seeing that this group acted like soldiers, only wearing simple armour with strange items in their hands, Chalon turned to Count Andre and asked, “Who are these fellows?”
Count Andre was a bit nervous as he replied in a low voice, “They are the subordinates of a nearby noble. That’s strange, why did they come here today? Did they receive some information?”
“It’s not the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards……” Chalon was a bit disappointed. He turned and gave a nod to the leader of the troops beside him, “Take care of them all, don’t leave a single one.”
Hearing Chalon’s orders, Count Andre was shocked.
“Lord Chalon, you……”
Before he could finish, the troop leader beside Chalon waved his hand to give the signal to attack.
Chalon had brought the elite troops of Duke Windsor, so they were well trained. Once they received the order, there were five hundred people who raised the bows in their hands and sent a rain of arrows at the three hundred people.
The other side was surprised to see this large group attacking them and seeing the countless arrows falling down, they were shocked.
After being caught off guard, the arrows were already falling down on them.
“Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding.”
The countless arrows kept falling onto the thin armour the three hundred of them were wearing, giving out clear sounds.
“Humph, a bunch of trash.” Chalon curled his lips in disdain.
However, the cold smile on his face suddenly froze.
Although the arrows had completely covered them, not leaving a single one out of the net, after the rain of arrows, all the arrows had only hit their armour and hadn’t injured them at all!
Seeing that these three hundred people were all just standing there, Chalon’s eyes popped out and he didn’t dare believe his own eyes.
Those fellows had such thin armour, how could they be safe under the sharp arrows of the elites he had brought?
Turning to look at the leader, he found that he was also shocked and clearly didn’t believe what he just saw.
After those three hundred people were stunned by this ambush, they quickly reacted.
“Damn, brothers, they want to kill us, go all out against them!” An angry roar sounded among those three hundred people.
Hearing this, Chalon gave a cold snort. Although he thought that the armour these fellows were wearing were a bit unusual, they dared to fight against three thousand elites with only three hundred people?
They simply didn’t want to live!
“Ike, take care of them. Don’t show any mercy.” Chalon said in a deep voice to the leader beside him.
The troop leader Ike wanted to raise his hand to give the order to attack, but he saw the other side raise the strange things in their hands at them.
“Sou, sou, sou, sou, sou, sou.”
Countless arrows filled the air and the first row of Duke Windsor’s guards didn’t even have a chance to make a sound before falling down.
The first row fell along with the second row, the third row…...
It was like harvesting wheat. The perfect formation suddenly had a large gap in it because several hundred people had suddenly fallen.
Seeing this scene, Chalon took a cold breath.
These people had random movements and they didn’t seem like they had received strict training at all, but with the strange things in their hands, they could release such a powerful battle strength.
“These are the military magic machines?” Chalon asked Count Andre beside him.
Count Andre’s expression was very ugly as he slowly shook his head, “No, these are only the Magic Repeating Crossbows, they can’t be considered the real military magic machines…..”
“These aren’t it? Then aren’t the real military magic machines even more powerful?” Cha lon was stunned. He turned to see that there were already over a hundred casualties in the subordinates that he had brought.
Although the leader Ike wanted to attack, even though the other side only had three hundred people, there was a dense layer of arrows that made it impossible for them to attack.
It was a good thing that Chalon had brought the elites of Duke Windsor. After panicking a bit, they bunkered down and took this attack.
Count Andre and Chalon hid behind a large rock. He poked his head out before asking Chalon, “Lord Chalon, I suggest that you retreat immediately. It’s best if you return to the Candra Empire right away.”
Chalon knitted his brows. He really wanted to say that he had three thousand soldiers and the other side only had three hundred people, how could he run.
But now he was seeing those three hundred people being stronger than his three thousand soldiers, suppressing them without being able to fight back at all.
But no matter what, it was impossible for him to retreat.
Chalon gave a hand signal to leader Ike, telling him to wait until the enemy’s attack stopped before counterattacking.
Ike nodded to show he understood.
Chalon then turned to ask Count Andre, “Count Andre, you said that these aren’t the real military magic machines. Then tell me, are the real military magic machines even more shocking?”
“That’s right, the real military magic machines are even more powerful than you imagined……”
The large rock behind the two of them suddenly exploded and the two hiding behind it couldn’t react at all. They were hit by the scattered rocks and were knocked out.
