I, The Dragon Overlord Chapter 28 - First Evolution Completed, The Elf Queen’s Plot

The capital of the Silver Moon Kingdom...

In the sanctuary under the branches of the Ancient Tree of Life, bright green branches and leaves climbed on the walls of the palace eaves. A few mysterious multicolored fruits dotted the dome. A clear lake flowed into the palace, and a few brightly colored fishes would jump out of it on occasion.

The flower and tree spirits were only as large as a human’s palm. They weaved in between the flowers, giggling and laughing, and left trails of phosphorescent light behind them, as fireflies do. The palace buzzed with life.

Outside, two elven guards in emerald green armor stood erect on the jade steps, guarding the sanctuary and their queen from any intrusion.

“General Sisna, Her Majesty is praying to Lady Silver Moon, please wait for a moment!”

The two guards crossed their long spears to block Sisna’s way and spoke in a straightforward but respectful tone.

Despite their reputation for guerrilla tactics, elves were quite capable of conventional warfare. Had the potential casualties not been a concern, they would have fought many battles on the plains.

Neither humans nor beastmen had ever succeeded in exterminating the elves, but both had paid heavy prices in their attempts.

Sisna did not mind the guards blocking her and only nodded as she stood still.

Not long after, a cold but melodious voice sounded from within the palace.

“Sisna... come in.”

The guards put away their spears on hearing this.

Sisna crossed the pond filled with lively koi fishes. She walked up the stairs that floated on the river and arrived under a dome.

The queen of the elves was standing there. Although it was daytime, the light of the silver moon shone down from the open roof of the dome, casting a mysterious air on her figure.

“Your Majesty!”

Sisna hurriedly reached the bottom of the stairs and knelt down respectfully.

All the elves adored the queen. It was to her great credit that they stood among the many races today.

The queen was one of the oldest demigods, and it was said that she had lived for 10,000 years. According to the records, roughly 9,000 years ago, the various races were nothing more than barbaric rabble. Countries did not exist and races lived in scattered tribes. It was the elf queen who had unified the elves and established the Silver Moon Kingdom.

The elves were the very first bearers of civilization on the main continent. At the time the humans and beastmen were still relatively barbaric, with forces that could not hold a candle to their unified and coordinated armies. That era was the apex of elven civilization, and both humans and beastmen were heavily influenced by the elves. Even at present, traces of elven arts and aesthetics lingered within their cultures.

But in the long run, the population advantages of the humans and beastmen bore out. Once they started to develop, the elves retreated step after step until only the southernmost part of the Forest of the Moon was safe for them. They had lost their chance at continental dominance.
