“Hong, hong, hong, hong, hong……”
Countless red lights fell from the sky, hitting the position of the Spirit Turtle Regiment, creating a series of loud explosions.
Regiment commander Thomas could only helplessly watch as the defensive position their regiment had held for half a month was blown up. His heart was filled with shock and even more of a chill.
His Spirit Turtle Regiment was the famous defensive regiment of the Sack Kingdom and they had gone all out in the past half a year to construct their fortifications, but now it collapsed at the first blow.
If these attacks weren’t just aimed at the fortifications, but rather aimed right at the Spirit Turtle Regiment hiding behind it, the losses of the Spirit Turtle Regiment would have been very heavy.
Seeing the flames in front of them, commander Thomas gave a long sigh before saying to his personal guard beside him, “Send down the order, full retreat.”
The personal guard was stunned, “Sir, this…..”
“Stop wasting words, quickly send down the order.” Commander Thomas waved his hand.
The personal guard had a doubtful and unwilling look, but he didn’t dare keep asking. After giving a bow, he went to send down the orders.
“Ai, Thomas, it seems like we aren’t qualified to face those Frestech Chamber of Commerce fellows at all right now.” The Spirit Turtle Regiment’s chief staff officer Derank came from the side and said this with a sigh.
Commander Thomas gave a bitter laugh, “Not to mention those freaks from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, I’m afraid we can’t even face the Lampuri Kingdom head on.”
After pausing, commander Thomas suddenly cursed in a low voice.
“Damn, it’s all that damn Frestech Chamber of Commerce. They made those damn military magic machines, they are simply the devil’s tools!”
Chief staff officer Derank shook his head and gave a sigh, “Alright, there’s no use talking about this. We should think about what to do. If we don’t have a way to solve this, our Sack Kingdom will be in danger in the future.”
Commander Thomsa cursed again before knitting his brows, “It really is strange speaking of this. We have deployed our troops here for so long and the Moon Shadow Tribe elves never made a move, so why did they suddenly make such a big move? What’s stranger is that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce is mixed in, they even sent out their guards?”
“You can go ask the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.” Chief staff officer Derank rolled his eyes, “The Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Xu is a maniac, who knows what he is thinking.”
“Damn, it’s all because of the appearance of that maniac that our Sack Kingdom can’t have any peace. Could it be that we really have no way of taking care of him?”
“Stop dreaming.” Chief staff officer Derank shook his head, “First not to mention that that maniac is a Great Magician who isn’t easy to deal with, even if there was a chance to deal with him, those important people in the kingdom wouldn’t agree.”
“I really don’t know what those people are thinking. Could it be that they really think we can get any benefits from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce?”
Looking at commander Thomas who hid nothing on his face, chief staff officer Derank gave a nod in his heart.
That’s right, it wasn’t just those people, even the entire Sack Kingdom had benefited from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
And this benefit wasn’t small.
Although the Sack Kingdom army hated the Frestech Chamber of Commerce because the appearance of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had made their advantage against the Lampuri Kingdom disappear, even making them be suppressed by the Lampuri Kingdom at will, the powers outside the Sack Kingdom army mostly approved of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
The reason was very simple, it was because the appearance of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had brought many good changes to the Sack Kingdom.
The most simple example was three years ago when the Sack Kingdom bought a large number of agricultural magic machines from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce. Then after reforming the farmland and farming with the agricultural magic machines, the Sack Kingdom’s grain yield had set a new record every year.
Based on the data from the harvest this spring, the Sack Kingdom’s harvest had reached a shocking three million tons!
With the other grains, just the grain production of this spring was enough to match the past harvest of the entire year.
With the fall harvest that was coming, based on the reports that were coming in, there was only more and not less grain being harvested compared to spring.
As the matter stood, the Sack Kingdom’s grain harvest this year in terms of wheat would be over six million tons. It was enough to feed all the citizens and even store some for later.
For the dry and arid Sack Kingdom that always had an issue with grain production was simply a miracle.
The Sack Kingdom kept sending troops to the Lampuri Kingdom and the other countries to solve their domestic food crisis.
Otherwise, with the national strength of the Sack Kingdom that wasn’t that much higher than the surrounding countries, there was no reason to create wars all the time.
The Lampuri Kingdom’s strength had surged and the Sack Kingdom had been defeated, which created a panic in the Sack Kingdom. They were worried that the Sack Kingdom wouldn’t be able to pillage enough grains from other countries and there would be a famine.
But they never thought that the Lampuri Kingdom would take the initiative to sign a trade agreement with the Sack Kingdom, selling them grains and helping them avoid this crisis.
Then after this, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and the other companies of the Lampuri Kingdom invested in factories in the Sack Kingdom. Not only did they bring the advanced agricultural magic machines and farming system to the Sack Kingdom, helping them fundamentally solve their food crisis, they even started a magic machine industry in the free trade area to the south of the Sack Kingdom, giving many citizens of the Sack Kingdom good jobs.
If it was based on this, because of the appearance of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, it brought the Sack Kingdom many great benefits.
Of course, from the views of the military, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was without a doubt the Sack Kingdom’s mortal enemies.
Because the Sack Kingdom’s military knew that as long as the Frestech Chamber of Commerce supported the Lampuri Kingdom, the Sack Kingdom would never have a day where they could raise their heads.
So chief staff officer Derank was very clear on the hatred commander Thomas had in his heart for the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
Not mentioning anything else, just the Frestech Chamber of Commerce actually sending their guards to help the elves of the Moon Shadow Tribe to repel the Spirit Turtle Regiment, that was enough to make commander Thomas deem the Frestech Chamber of Commerce as a mortal enemy.
However, commander Thomas’ thoughts didn’t have any meaning because, in front of facts, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards were as strong as they rumours, they were even more terrifying than they imagined. The Spirit Turtle Regiment couldn’t resist at all, so commander Thomas could only give the order to retreat.
“I think that you don’t need to worry about the other side chasing us down.” Chief staff officer Derank looked into the distance before saying to commander Thomas, “Based on that attack, the other side only wanted to drive us off and didn’t want to fight with us.”
Commander Thomas gave a cold snort, “They are only the guards of a company in the end, would they dare declare war on our entire Sack Kingdom?”
Chief staff officer Derank looked at him with a bit of worry in his eyes.
This was what many people at the army headquarters thought, but he didn’t think it was true.
Although from an objective analysis, no matter how powerful the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was, they were only a company in the end, so they definitely couldn’t fight against an entire country.
But chief staff officer Derank had analyzed the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s movements over the past year and he felt that this was less and less far-fetched.
Xu Yi, this Frestech Chamber of Commerce chairman, did many crazy things that no one could understand.
But after reviewing them, they found that there was a deep meaning to his methods. They all set up the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s next move, as if there was nothing meaningless about it.
Then this time, for him to suddenly send the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards to help the Moon Shadow Tribe’s elves drive off the Spirit Turtle Regiment’s blockade of the Moon Shadow Tribe’s territory, it seemed like a crazy move on the surface because this would trigger a reaction from the Sack Kingdom. It might even make the Sack Kingdom declare war, but in reality?
Chief staff officer Derank didn’t understand what Xu Yi was doing and what he wanted to obtain from this, so he was worried.
What made him even more worried was the worst case scenario.
If the Frestech Chamber of Commerce really declared war on the Sack Kingdom, what would be the result?
If this question was thrown at any normal person on the continent, they would definitely think the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was insane.
A company wanted to declare war on a country that was considered middle class on the Sines Continent, this was simply seeking death.
But after chief staff officer Derank thought about this, he had a different conclusion.
If the Frestech Chamber of Commerce declared war on the Sack Kingdom, he had an understanding of the Sack Kingdom’s military power as the Spirit Turtle Regiment’s chief staff officer. Chief staff officer Derank was certain that there wasn’t a single regiment in the Sack Kingdom that could resist the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards.
Even if all the Sack Kingdom’s regiments were put together, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards would just take a bit longer. They wouldn’t be able to resist in the end.
Because this wasn’t a fight on the same scale.
It was like the situation in front of chief staff officer Derank right now. All the members of the Spirit Turtle Regiment, they hadn’t even seen the face of the enemy before they were forced to retreat by their attacks.
All the regiments of the Sack Kingdom would be the same, there was no exception.
So the result was that if the Frestech Chamber of Commerce declared war on the Sack Kingdom, the Sack Kingdom would surely lose.
Even if the Frestech Chamber of Commerce couldn’t seize the entire Sack Kingdom, the Sack Kingdom’s army would be completely defeated and would they have any chance of surviving?
Every time he thought of this, chief staff officer Derank would feel a strong uneasiness.
What to do?
