Bing analyzed the new mechanical spirit weapon in front of him. It was deep blue in color similar to those of the sky. It looked somewhat like Sky Tiger, but the lines were much more intricately carved in, the joints were much more developed, every single one of them seemed to be forged with the utmost care of an artist, making them extremely beautiful. It looked like a tiger, with a dignified and stern aura.
The sparkling blue feathers stacked onto each other, forming six magnificent wings that were as straight as swords.
“This is your newest mechanic spirit weapon. Last time, your battle destroyed much of Sky Tiger, especially the martial spirit. I used the remaining aura of the martial spirit to merge with a new martial spirit to create this weapon.
Sai Lei was apologetic as knew how much the Sky Tiger meant to Bing.
“Thank you,” Bing shook his head: “You have done your best.”
“That’s right!” Sai Lei agreed: “This is the strongest mechanic spirit weapon I have ever created up to date! If you ever meet Ye Chao Ge, you must try this weapon on him. See if he could still destroy it like last time. For this mechanical spirit weapon, I had conducted tons of experiments to perfect it, even making use of the people under Tang Chou.”
She was still brooding over the destruction of Sky Tiger.
Women sure remember vengeance well…
Bing changed the topic with perspiration: “Introduce me to your creation then. It looks splendid!”
Sai Lei was elated: “Not only does it look good, but you will know it’s powerful utility when you try it. I have researched on your battle style, and honestly, I have found out that your personal strength is not as powerful as your strength as a military leader. Hence, I tweaked the weapon such that it would increase your strength to the levels of the generals. This is the first weapon I have ever created just for a military leader.”
“Designed for a military leader!” Bing was excited. He dashed towards Sai Lei: “How did you manage to do it?”
Specialized mechanical spirit weapons that were used only by military leaders had been the focus of research by the army for years. But they have never manage to conceive such a weapon before.
Sai Lei managed to create it!
He couldn’t believe what he heard.
Sai Lei was taken aback by Bing’s excitement: “This problem was also solved with Pi Pa’s help.” She then shouted: “Pi Pa, Pi Pa!”
“Coming!” Pi Pa shouted back from across the other room. It wasn’t the first time she was summoned by Sai Lei to do odd jobs.
Once she saw Bing, she quickly bowed down: “Master Bing!”
Sai Lai waved his hand: “Come, explain to General Bing what happened that day.”
“Explain what?” Pi Pa asked. Though she was still ill, she looked much better than before. Old Man Fei had not stop researching on her illness. After putting in immense effort, progress could be seen from the slight recovery for Pi Pa.
Sai Lei replied impatiently: “The one regarding the army, the military leader and the martial artists. Oh my, thinking about it made my head hurt, better for you to say it.”
“Oh I understand now.” Pi Pa replied: “What I say might not be accurate though…”
“It is okay. Just tell me what you know.” Bing explained, trying to sound as warm and gentle as he could.
“I…I read it in the book, the Era of the Three Great Armies, the armies and military leaders were being pushed to obscurity.” Pi Pa then regain her composure. She gradually picked up her confidence: “I think this was due to the development of the martial techniques. After the Three Great Armies, a variety of martial techniques and strong martial artists had emerged. The development of martial techniques soon surpassed its previous peak, conceiving even stronger Spirit Techniques. Even the strength of individuals had reached new heights.”
“Under these circumstances, the advantage of having great numbers of martial artists had been superseded by the strength of these top martial artists. Hence, the Heavenly Road was controlled by the top martial artists. It was during this time when the Onyx Soul and the Honourable Martial Group emerged. If the Three Great Armies Era was considered the Generation of Armies, then after that, it would be the Martial Artist Era.”
Bing was surprised. But he agreed. Pi Pa was accurate in her description.
“Since the start of the Martial artist Era, there has also been a multitude of developments. The research on martial spirits had led to untold developments. Training techniques have also become easier. Now, almost anyone can learn a technique or two. Techniques are becoming more ubiquitous as new technique systems had reached its peak 200 years ago. The strength between martial artists has also become closer matched. The advantage of having greater number of martial artists has now become relevant again. It was Lei Ang who first discovered this phenomenon!”
Pi Pa was beaming with confidence as she finished the last word, speaking at a right speed, without being too overbearing or compromising.
“Lion King Lei Ang?” Bing was shocked.
“Yes.” Pi Pa nodded: “Lion King Lei Ang started building his own army. After the Lion King’s Army was established, it has never endured a defeat. Since then, people have witnessed the prowess of armies and the importance of military leaders has become an interest for many. The army has now regained its popularity.”
“You are saying the Generation of Armies is going to rise once again?” Bing asked. He did not dare to underestimate the knowledge that this little girl possessed.
“No, it will be the Generation of Chaos instead!” Pi Pa shook her head.
“Generation of Chaos?” Bing was surprised.
“Yes, because there is now no clear advantage between armies and top martial artist. They are both closely matched. Hence, it will be the Generation of Chaos.”
Pi Pa mused and replied: “In the Generation of Chaos, the important playmakers would be Lei Ang and the mechanical spirit weapons created by Sister Sai Lei!”
Sai Lei was elated, her face looking very proud : “Haha, my sister has brought me into comparison with the Lion King Lei Ang. You sure look up to your sister!”
Bing wondered what Pi Pa had said. He stared at her and asked: “Why did you say that?”
“Because the spirit is the most crucial element!” Pi Pa replied: “The mechanical weapons and the mechanical spirit weapons are not weapons of just one era. The mechanical spirit weapon is like a secret treasure that can grow in strength over time. It will overtake the treasures as it can be mass produced. I do not have much information on Lei Ang’s army, but I can guess that their battle tactics utilize the martial spirit in combat.”
Bing was speechless as he tried to digest whatever Pi Pa had told him.
After finishing, Pi Pa’s initial confidence had now disappeared. She now looked fearful and anxious.
“Hey, poker face. The little lady has finished. Say something!” Sai Lei exclaimed impatiently.
Bing came back to his sense and looked at Pi Pa apologetically: “I was too enthralled by it. But I feel that what you said made sense. How did you think of that?”
“I…I read it from a book.” Pi Pa replied humbly.
Bing praised her fervently: “You are a genius!”
Pi Pa was shy by the praises: “It was just my imagination. I did not know if they are correct.”
“Your words have impacted me significantly.” Bing exclaimed: “We can only wait and see if what you said was accurate.”
“If Master is here, everything will be fine…” Pi Pa said gently. In her eyes, she still felt Tang Tian was the most powerful.
Sai Lei also frowned: “Hey, where did that brat go? It has been days since I last saw him. What kind of boss is he? This base is also under his management; how can he not care about this base at all. Next time, I should call him to fork out more money out from his own pocket!”
Bing also frowned. He thought out loud: “His training this time seems to be taking too long…”
Based on Tang Tian’s strength, the Indigo Mirror Ocean should be manageable for him.
It had been 2 months already yet there was still no sign of him.
But once the Indigo Mirror Ocean was initiated, there was no way to open it up from the outside. Furthermore, the barracks was running well even without the presence of Tang Tian. Bing took comfort in that.
Sai Lei’s interest dissipated after that interruption: “He can do whatever he wants. I couldn’t care more about him.”
Suddenly, a loud siren pierced through the air.
Bing had the face filled with killer instinct.
“Great, now you can go and try it out.” Sai Lei exclaimed.
Bing replied: “I will go and take a look. Close the door.”
After finishing, he donned his new mechanical spirit weapon and left in a hurry.
When the siren sounded initially, the bronze structure was in deep silence for awhile. Within seconds, it became a ruckus.
All the lights were lit, brightening up the entire encampment.
“First Team assemble. Your goal is the training camp. Go there fast!” Mo Zi Yu shouted. He was excited as he dashed towards the Military Weapon warehouse. They had not finished their training, hence their daily mechanical spirit weapons were stored in the warehouse.
“Second Team! Follow up!” Mo Wu Wei shouted coolly at them
Countless shadows followed the 2 leaders. Some were topless, others were only in short shorts. Everyone knew that time was precious.
Tang Chou was already at the scene. His ugly face was steady and unwavering.
My first battle is about to come…
He couldn’t comprehend the fire that was burning within him. He was yearning for battle…
The noise of swords and shields clashing filled the air. He could see numerous shadows in the distance climbing the external walls.
The enemies numbered by the hundreds with formidable strength. They were around the standards of level six. There were a few who had much stronger strength who managed to escape the traps set up at the defensive walls. With the leadership of these skilled martial artists, the enemies managed to slipped through the defenses and traps.
Tang Chou calmly examined the circumstances. The enemy was a large group of bandits. They had strong leaders who were guiding them.
Suddenly, a hoarse Erhu sound rang out in the darkness, gripping the fears of men. It transformed into a sorrowful tune, implicating the moods of the people.
Blind Chord Old Man attacked!
There were countless shadow figures that were scaling the walls. Some of those were martial artists with lower strength. One could see their fear in battle.
In the darkness, the middle-age man’s expression changed. He had formidable strength. Once they heard the sound of his string, they knew that the Blind Chord Old man’s strength was stronger than they expected.
With this kind of strength, he was definitely not at the tail end of the Heaven’s Road List.
The man suddenly turned around and shouted.
