ZL - Chapter 1060- Xu Yan died

"Those who are not dead, rise up and continue to fight!" I looked at Han Yuan.

He stood up and smiled. "General, the walls are badly damaged!"

"I can see that. Kill this giant; we can't let him continue destroying the walls."

"Yes!"

Han Yuan glanced at the Royal Army troops. "Men, give me another blade!"

In the crowd, a Lieutenant tossed out a shining blade. Han Yuan grabbed it and smiled. "Bright and cold, good blade!"

...

On the walls, the Royal Army Archers fired their arrows. The Dark Moon Elves with Ling Luo as their leader were really strong. Along with the Heavy Flame Archers firing, the giant's eyes became peppered in arrows. It had lost its sight and could not even close its eyes. However, as any injured beast, the giant indiscriminately waved his ax about, leaving deep holes on the walls. If he continued, Fan Shu City would definitely fall today!

Luckily, the NPC generals were strong. Along with Zhan Long members attacking, the giant's health fell. It was down to 10% in the blink of an eye.

Search h0sted n0vel for the original.

However, in this period when our attention was on the giant, the Swirling Abyss City Russian players had taken the chance to push dozens of chariots over. The Swirling Abyss City soldiers fell onto the walls and started slashing about.

What was worse was that the Royal Army's failure to defend allowed players to climb up. All of a sudden, 50% of the people on the walls were Russian!

"D*mn!"

Li Mu pulled his horse reins and said, "Furnace God Cavalry, charge! Clear them out. Have the people in the city help in defending; we are about to lose the south!"

One Second Hero, Li Meng Yao, Yue Yao Yan, et cetera charged alongside Li Mu. If they did not charge now, the south walls would be lost.

As the Frost Giant fell, he dropped some equipment. I flew down and picked everything up before handing it all to Yue Qing Qian. We were lucky and there was one 1-star god weapon and two Divine Tier equipment. The god equipment was a pair of bracers, which was given to an Assassin. As for the rest, they were rolled.

...

I looked toward the east walls and saw that they were in a bad state, too. A portion was cleared out, with many Swirling Abyss City NPC players having successfully climbed up. A giant ax mark, about five meters long, could also be seen.

"Long Xing!" I looked down.

Long Xing, who was currently gathering Royal Army troops, looked at me. "Yes, General?"

"Gather workers to fix the walls!"

"Yes!"

Dong Cheng Yue, Dancing Forest, and other Zhan Long players defended the breach, while the workers tossed stones up to fix it. This rough way helped to make up for the hole. Han Yuan led the soldiers to move a few Dragon Crystal Cannons up. In the distance, after half an hour, Li Mu and Wang Jian led the Furnace God Cavalry to get the south walls back.

The walls were covered in dense corpses. We had suffered heavy losses to defend the city, but the enemies had definitely suffered two times more losses compared to us.

I walked around and saw the Swirling Abyss City soldiers scaling the walls like bugs. The Royal Army cannons continued to fire, and mushroom clouds blossomed on the plains. One cannon left a hole, but it was unable to stop the enemy’s advancement.

Brown Eyes, who was already furious, did not want to waste too much time here and wanted to take down the city right away.

I rode the horse, but Butterfly had already been tossed down with Blade Spin. Players on the wall fell. Li Meng Yao, Yue Yao Yan, et cetera defended with their shields. As for Dong Cheng Yue, she used Aisha's Staff to gain country war points. She had killed too many people this time.

I walked at the front and passed the south wall. Xia Ye and a bunch of Royal Army cavalry guarded me until I reached the west. I noticed that this was not any battle. Violent Thunder Army corpses lay all around. A general, who was slicing about, pulled his sword out from the chest of the enemy. He retreated and was hit by three arrows on his shoulder.

"General Ouyang Di!" Xia Ye exclaimed.

This was Violent Thunder Army's General Ouyang Di. He was just a Demon Harvest Tier Boss, not even a Deity Tier. On such a battlefield, there was a high chance of him dying. After all, not every army's Bosses had strength like Han Yuan and Xiao Lie. Ouyang Di panted and smiled. "Greetings, Marshal Li!"

I looked at him and also at the corpses around. "All of you are really doing so much for Fan Shu City!"

Ouyang Di was determined. "Fan Shu City will never fall. If we can die for Fan Shu City, that is our honor!"

"Great!" Xia Ye patted his shoulder. "Good brother!"

This novel is _hosted_ by hosted novel.

Ouyang Di looked at someone and pointed. "Marshal Li... General Xu Yan, he... has died!"

I was stunned. "Xu Yan died?"

"Yes."

I walked forward and saw that Xu Yan was resting on a wall; an arm of his was gone. His blood was black, and there were seven arrows on him. The fatal shot was that one on his neck. The once arrogant Violent Thunder Army General lost his job due to Floating Clouds. For him to die on the battlefield, was this the most appropriate thing?

One definitely made wrong choices in life, but if they could get back onto their original path, they were worthy of forgiveness.

I sighed. "After the battle, if the empire hasn’t fallen, give him a good burial. He has died with honor for the empire, so he is worthy of us doing that."

Ouyang Di's eyes were filled with respect. "Yes, Marshal Li!"

...

After looking around, my heart started to feel cold. These three cities were attacking so fiercely, and Fan Shu City was badly damaged. Fortunately, there were many of us defending and after one batch died, more could take over. Moreover, those who lost a level did not go offline. Most of them had gathered in Tian Ling City and were now waiting to head back. It took them just an hour to get from Tian Ling City to Fan Shu City, but the three main cities needed ten hours to get over. Even with the Valella crystal, that thing was too precious and there were not many. Moreover, in a country war, a few thousand people teleporting would not do much.

I took a look and 50% of the Violent Thunder Army and Fire Ax troops were killed. The Royal Army also lost 30% of its numbers. The three main cities attacking us together really made us pay a hefty price.

My only hope was that Fang Ge Que and Q-Sword would win in the east. Whether or not they won or lost, if we had more of them, we could head out to battle and take them down. Just these five million players alone were not enough.

...

This lasted for seven hours and the numbers of people here in Fan Shu City were changing drastically—

Tian Ling City: 4,718,821

Moon City: 3,122,839

Iron Skull City: 19,283,737

Swirling Abyss City: 4,717,232

...

There were just too many people from that place. Moreover, more and more reinforcements arrived. We lost eight million, but we could kill 203 times that number. Just Iron Skull City alone lost ten million to us, but this did not affect the big picture. Fan Shu City was still surrounded and their next attacks would definitely be worse.

At that moment, a report came from afar—

17:02 – Nine Heavens City. Fang Ge Que led the Heaven Planning Hall team to attack the city. Yan Zhao Warrior led Prague to kill the reinforcements and wiped out two million people.

17:44 - Drunk Maple gathered twenty million and proceeded to Nine Heavens City. They are now at Waterfront City's borders and are about to strike Nine Heavens City.

16:01 - Flaming Cloud City. Lin Wan Er sent out five million troops southwest of Waterfront City and could attack the city at any moment.

...

The situation was getting worse for us, and each step was laced with thin ice. No one knew what was next and how long Fan Shu City could last.

Based on the news from Tian Ling City, Fang Ge Que was determined to take Nine Heavens City. The players that had revived in Tian Ling City were mostly summoned over to Nine Heavens City. Fang Ge Que's words were: "No matter how many times they revive, we have to break them down and grab their throne!"

Demon Mountain had an agreement with me, but with it broken like that, the agreement was useless. Nine Heavens and Tian Ling cities were at war.

Still, with Q-Sword, Yan Zhao Warrior, Jian Feng Han, Simple, and the others listening to his orders, Fang Ge Que did have a chance to take down Nine Heavens City in three days’ time. If he did, Fang Ge Que's position would rise. A true god should do what others could not.

However, what truly surprised me was that Purple Wind Flute had not used the two hundred thousand troops. If she had, that would have caused a huge problem for the Heaven Planning Hall players.

Forget it. What I should be thinking of was how my allies and I could defend Fan Shu City!
