Magic Industry Empire - Volume 7 Chapter 107




When the alliance of the Candra Empire, the Marlow Empire, forty other countries, and sixty well known organizations declared war on the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, no one was optimistic of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s prospects because everyone believed that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce wouldn’t be able to resist them.

Although there were some countries like the Lampuri Kingdom, the Rudson Kingdom, and the Drake Duchy that supported the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, that didn’t change anyone’s views.

Because compared to giants like the Candra Empire and the Marlow Empire, the Lampuri Kingdom and the other countries were only small countries, so they were far from being able to compare.

Of course, because the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and the other countries had the support of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce military magic machines, some people guessed that the side of the two empires wouldn’t have a smooth invasion and would be counterattacked by these countries.

But no one believed that they would be able to resist them in the end because of the difference in national power. They would definitely be slowly grinded down bit by bit by the two empires.

But when the two sides started fighting, everyone found that it progressed completely different from what everyone expected before.

Whether it was the Candra Empire or the Marlow Empire, they had met a steel wall in both the invasion of the Rudson Kingdom in the south and the invasion of the Drake Duchy in the north, suffering heavy losses.

The Marlow Empire’s situation was better. They had just paid a bit when fighting the Lampuri Kingdom and the Drake Duchy’s allied army at the border before being forced to retreat.

The Candra Empire’s invasion of the Rudson Kingdom in the south had resulted in incomparable giant losses that were hard to believe.

Just in the first military campaign against the Rudson Kingdom, the Candra Empire had lost more than forty thousand elites and their supply depot had been completely destroyed by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards’ ambush.

Because they lost their supply depot, they were unable to come to a deadlock with the Rudson Kingdom, so they were forced by the command of Duke Makaros to march onto the Indra Plains on the north of the Rudson Kingdom to fight a decisive battle with the Rudson Kingdom and the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards.

This battle could be considered the largest scale battle with the most participants in the past few decades on the Sines Continent.

The Candra Empire had over one hundred and forty thousand troops, the Rudson Kingdom and the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s allied army only had less than fifty thousand troops.

Normally speaking, since there was such a large disparity in troops, the Rudson Kingdom and Frestech Chamber of Commerce allied army choosing to fight a decisive battle on the planes was seeking their own death.

But when the battle started, the result had shocked the entire continent.

In just a single day of fighting, victory had been decided.

In the end, the Candra Empire forces had been completely routed, suffering a hundred thousand casualties, leaving only forty thousand people who could run away.

Perhaps this result was still in the acceptable range since in the history of the Sines Continent, there had been examples of a smaller force defeating a larger force.

But when the losses of the Rudson Kingdom and the Frestech Chamber of Commerce allied forces were published, no one could believe this result.

According to the data published, the Rudson Kingdom and Frestech Chamber of Commerce allied army had only suffered less than three thousand casualties!

A force of less than fifty thousand facing one hundred and forty thousand elites of the Candra Empire? The enemy suffered a hundred thousand casualties and your own casualties were less than three thousand?

Even the most famous war novels among the citizens wouldn’t have such a large contrast in casualties between two sides.

Because everyone thought that this was basically impossible!

However, the facts were in front of everyone and it wasn’t up to them to believe it or not.

The most important thing was that the Candra Empire had withdrawn their troops from the Rudson Kingdom and didn’t object to the reports the Rudson Kingdom published at all.

The Candra Empire army that had been very aggressive and had stated that they would break all resistance from the Rudson Kingdom in a single month had fallen deathly silent, not making a single sound.

Not long after this, in the beginning of July, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards entered the Wales Duchy from their southern port. In less than a week, they wiped out the Drow Race Kingdom and Candra Empire allied army that had invaded the Wales Duchy. They took advantage of this to go north and stormed the Drow Race Kingdom’s capital Drow City, capturing Drow City and the royal palace once again.

Half a month later, the Drow Race Kingdom had completely fallen under the control of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

The army that the Candra Empire army sent to the Drow Race Kingdom after hearing about this was easily defeated by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards, with the remnants withdrawing back into the Candra Empire.

The Candra Empire didn’t have any opinions on the actions the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards took in the Drow Race Kingdom afterwards.

At the same time, the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom in the southeast corner suddenly moved. In just a single month, they defeated the armies of the three surrounding countries and integrated all three countries under their control.

The southeast corner countries that had stood with the Candra Empire against the Frestech Chamber of Commerce lost their voice and the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom was able to easily control the area.

Then at the end of July.

The Lampuri Kingdom had defeated the Sack Kingdom and gained full control of the Sack Kingdom. On July 30th, they worked with the Drake Duchy to attack the Falk Kingdom.

The Falk Kingdom’s army worked with the hundred thousand army from the Marlow Empire to resist them, but they kept losing and finally retreated a thousand miles.

In the end, the Falk Kingdom’s army was close to being eliminated and less than forty thousand troops of the Marlow Empire’s army of one hundred thousand retreated back to the Marlow Empire.

On August 23rd, the Lampuri Kingdom and the Drake Duchy’s allied army took the Falk Kingdom’s capital. The Falk Kingdom’s king and the royal palace were destroyed in the flames of war and the Falk Kingdom was destroyed.

September 10th, the Sack Kingdom announced their complete surrender to the Lampuri Kingdom.

The Sack Kingdom would be integrated into the Lampuri Kingdom and the Sack Kingdom would no longer exist.

September 27th, the Drake Duchy and the Lampuri Kingdom signed an agreement to divide the Falk Kingdom’s original territory. The one hundred and seventy square kilometers of the land to the west that bordered the Drake Duchy would be taken by them, and the two hundred and thirty square kilometers of land that bordered the Marlow Empire to the east would be taken by the Lampuri Kingdom.

After this agreement was announced, people felt a bit strange learning about this.

It wasn’t a problem that half the Falk Kingdom’s territory would go to the Drake Duchy because they bordered the Drake Duchy, so it would allow the Drake Duchy to develop their territory.

But there were many problems with the Lampuri Kingdom getting the other half of the Falk Kingdom.

Based on the map, this half bordered the Marlow Empire to the north, the Candra Empire to the east, the Drake Duchy to the west and southwest, with two smaller duchies that were to the south.

In short, there wasn’t a single border with the Lampuri Kingdom.

Since it was like this, why would the Lampuri Kingdom take half the land? If they didn’t have any border, it would naturally be very inconvenient to control it.

But it didn’t take long before everyone’s questions were answered.

October 17th, the two small duchies to the south announced at the same time they would be joining the Lampuri Kingdom.

Like this, if one looked at the map again, they would find that because the Lampuri Kingdom’s northern borders met one of the small duchies, this land was connected to the Lampuri Kingdom.

Many people could only say that this was expected and was also logical.

If anyone else was the duke of these two small duchies, they would make the same choice.

If they didn’t surrender, wouldn’t that mean waiting for the Lampuri Kingdom’s armies to come?

The two small duchies had been protected by the Candra Empire and didn’t need to worry about the nearby Lampuri Kingdom and Drake Duchy having ideas towards them.

But now that there was a war that no one could understand, the Lampuri Kingdom had become very powerful and it was the Candra Empire that had fallen silent.

In this situation, how could the two small duchies not understand what decision they would have to make?

Like this, the southwest corner of the Sines Continent in a short half a year had completely changed.

Not to mention the other small duchies, for two kingdoms that could be considered powerful in the southwest corner like the Sack Kingdom and the Falk Kingdom to be destroyed, it really was very shocking.

Accordingly, the Lampuri Kingdom was the biggest winner.

Through several months of combat, the Lampuri Kingdom had annexed the Sack Kingdom and adding in the two hundred and forty square kilometers of land they got from the Falk Kingdom, the Lampuri Kingdom’s total territory had already surpassed a shocking one and a half million square kilometers.

This area size on the Sines Continent could already be considered the biggest under the two empires.

The second biggest winner was the Drake Duchy.

This small duchy with less than ten thousand square kilometers of land and a population of less than a hundred thousand, squished in between the Lampuri Kingdom, the Sack Kingdom, and the Falk Kingdom, they had swallowed a giant piece of territory of one hundred and seventy thousand square kilometers of land from the Falk Kingdom. Now the population that they had was close to a million people.

This made people quite doubtful.

Did the Drake Duchy have the appetite to swallow all these things?
