Chapter 151: The March of Apocalypse (pt. 2)

Lee Gong-Myung was leading 15,000 troops from the Anatolia territory. 

Clack, Clack.

Riding on a chariot pulled by two unicorns, Lee Gong-Myung looked at a map of the Ishtar region, and smiled faintly.

5 territories in a straight line. If I’m able to take these down… Nearby Lords won’t dare to attack Baruk Al-Yusuf, and he will then have force on par with Kang Chul-In.

Thinking like this, Lee Gong-Myung’s plan of ‘strengthening Baruk Al-Yusuf’ was a success.

Why?

Because due to this, Alex Rothschild would gain a powerful ally, or rather meat-shield, in Baruk Al-Yusuf.

And,

If we conquer these 5 territories, Baruk Al-Yusuf would be sharing borders with two other Overlords, Hecate and Aleister.

This was the frightening foresight that only Lee Gong-Myung could have.

----------

-Krrr!

The Altaica roared, on top of the castle walls. 

The sound was so loud and fearsome, that the remaining soldiers trembled in terror.

“Don’t worry, and come up!”

It was Kang Chul-In, riding atop the Altaica.

As soon as the battle had started, he and the Altaica had scaled the castle wall, slaughtering any that dared to come near.

“Yes, Milord!”

“Go!!!”

Following Kang Chul-In’s shout, the soldiers of Laputa soon followed.

Watching the soldiers of Laputa quickly climbing up the wall, the remaining enemy soldiers tried to gang up on Kang Chul-In.

However,

“Small fry should get lost.”

With one cold message, Kang Chul-In waved his right hand. It was his authority that let him control miniature tornadoes, Vortex.

BANG!

The tornado that he sent out soon spread out, and started to cut through the bodies of the opposing soldiers.

“AHH!!”

Fresh blood splattered on the castle walls.

“T-That’s not a human…”

“What kind of monster…”

The lucky survivors stared at Kang Chul-In in horror, realizing they would never win.

-Krrr!

The godbeast Altaica also showed its might, using its large legs to sweep aside any soldier that came close.

It wasn’t an overstatement to say that the terrifying synergy between Kang Chul-In and the godbeast was unparalleled in terms of strength.

“You bastards!”

Drakan shouted, wielding his giant greatsword. 

“Drakan!”

Kang Chul-In shouted.

“Yes, Milord!”

“Take the castle walls, and I’ll go hunt down the Lord of this territory.”

“This one will definitely do his best to stand guard while Milord is gone! Good luck, sire!”

“Alright.”

Kang Chul-In nodded.

“Let’s go!”

Tapping the Altaica slightly, Kang Chul-In started moving deeper into the Daox territory.

“Aghh!”

Where Kang Chul-In went, a trail of blood followed.

Daughter.

Kang Chul-In vowed.

I won’t leave anyone alive.

--------

In the Lord’s hall of the Daox territory---

“M-Milord! Quickly, you need to go into hiding!”

The secretary of the Daox territory, Douglas, spoke.

“D-Dammit! What the hell is happening?”

The Lord of the Daox territory, Steve, shouted.

“Why the hell is Kang Chul-In, that madman, wreaking havoc in my territory? What have I ever done to make him angry?”

“Milord! It’s not time to…”

As Douglas was trying to warn Steve to hide himself…

BANG!

With a large explosion, the door was opened by a man who was riding a giant tiger.

Douglas was incredibly shocked.

Kang Chul-In was covered in blood. No matter how powerful one’s mind was, it was difficult to be calm after killing so many people. But currently, Kang Chul-In was the epitome of calmness, looking as if he didn’t have a single care in the world.

There was no violent, bloodthirsty demon.

Just a father looking to save his daughter.

“O-Overlord Kang Chul-In….”

Looking at Kang Chul-In, Steve could only open his mouth in shock.

After all, what could he do, when he was powerless to resist against Kang Chul-In?

“W-Why are you invading my territory? Have I done anything to offend you?”

“You have.”

“...?”

“You definitely did do something wrong.”

Steve couldn’t understand. 

He had been stuck in his territory looking after his own internal affairs, and Kang Chul-In had busted in, telling him that he had made a mistake.

“Answer the questions I ask. If you lie to me, I’ll start to chop off your body parts. Do you know the Lord of the Bittermoon territory?”

“...!”

“Answer me.”

“I-I know him.”

“Then, do you also know that the Lord of the Bittermoon territory, Sheville Polansky, was here just a few days ago?”

“Y-Yes, sir!”

“Then tell me, what was his purpose in visiting?”

“T-That…”

Steve suddenly went quiet, unsure of what to say.

Dammit! What the hell is he trying to get me to say?

Steve tried his best to think.

What kind of relationship does he have with that crazy old man? Is he trying to punish me for my deal with him? It can’t be, right? He doesn’t look like a man that would look for honor, after all…

“M-Me and Lord Sheville Polansky are just Lords that share similar regions, so we don’t have any special relationships to speak of. The purpose of his visit was so that we can form an alliance…”

At that moment.

Tuk.

White flesh dropped onto the floor of the Daox territory,

Soon after,

“Argh!!!”

Steve’s shout of pain filled the hall. Kang Chul-In had chopped off his right arm.

“Say something that makes sense.”

Kang Chul-In said, his voice extremely cold.

----------

Sheville Polansky used the illusion network to try and communicate with the other Lords near him, in fear of Baruk Al-Yusuf.

“Dammit!”

Sheville Polansky muttered in rage.

No matter how many times he had called, the ‘Alun territory’ didn’t respond. There was a high possibility that it had already been conquered.

If Baruk Al-Yusuf was really coming south, then the next target would be the Iago territory.

And if the Iago territory was also conquered?

“I-I’m also in danger!”

“Milord!”

At that moment.

“A request for help has come in from the Chermart territory!”

“W-What?! The Chermart territory? W-What is it? Don’t tell me that Baruk Al-Yusuf is coming from both sides…?”

“N-No, sir! O-Overlord Kang Chul-In has just trampled the Daox territory with his army, and is planning to march North! We don’t have an accurate estimate of their numbers!”

“O-Overlord Kang Chul-In?! What the fuck?!”

Sheville Polansky was astonished.

“Why in hell is that Overlord from the Pandemonium region…”

“Milord!”

While Sheville Polansky was still thinking, a new report came in.

“A request has come in from the Iago territory! Baruk Al-Yusuf is approaching quickly, with… 15,000 soldiers!”

“W-What!!?”

Sheville Polansky once again shouted in shock.
