Chapter 257 Massacre Of The Player’s Stronghold
Emerald Grand Duchy was ruled by the vampires, but the Duchy’s law and order were very good. It was considered superior to other grand duchies.
Emerald Grand Duchy did not have any local gangsters. Most of the inhabitants were commoners with a small number of slaves. The crime rate was low, and the number of evil warlocks was also few.
The vagabonds in the duchy were all drained of blood by the vampires…
That was the reason why the Human empires and kingdoms were not bothered with these issues even when they knew that the leaders of Emerald Grand Duchy were vampires.
The Human empires were more concerned about the strategic view of the world. Humans could easily kill the vampires who were officials of the grand duchy any time, and they were not afraid of the Blood Dragon, the ancestor of the vampires.
Hence, Humans could not be bothered by the mediocre vampires. They thought of them as sheep that could be killed anytime.
Moreover, these noble vampires instituted good law and order in the nation. As such, the Human empires allowed the vampires to coexist…
After all, it did not matter who was ruling the nation as long as the Humans were in control.
The nations that were ruled by the vampires did not like to engage in wars. The death rate in the Emerald Grand Duchy was much lower than the small belligerent dukedoms!
The vampires were aware of their unique situation. As part of a strange race, the vampires did not have the endorsement of the Humans. Even during wars, the vampires had to depend on their race to discreetly conduct the wars!
Hence, the vampires knew how to conduct themselves under the strong control of the Human empires.
Just like what the professional that Fatty had met before said, as long as the Human empires did not fall, even if the surrounding small nations were to fail, it would not affect the strategic situation!
The Human empires were so powerful that the Humans had become complacent. They were following the footsteps of the Great Dragons in the first era and the Elves of the second era!
When William and his companions entered the Emerald Grand Duchy, they were disguised as devil hunters. But they had not been attacked by the vampires because the vampires were nobles and government officials. Unless they were being investigated by devil hunters, otherwise they would not preemptively strike.
Everyone knew that there were Blood Fruits in the Nightmare Forest.
Powerful professionals were making haste to the forest. But the vampires were not bothered with the professionals who fought among themselves for the fruits.
William and his companions were hooded, so their faces were hidden. Very few passers-by could recognize them.
But the six of them caught the attention of the players!
William encountered large numbers of players in the Emerald Grand Duchy.
The players were from the City of Dawn, Black Lava Dukedom, and the Freedom Alliance. They had formed teams in order to fight with other factions.
Many players of the City of Dawn had created posts on the forum to seek reinforcements to Emerald Grand Duchy. They were being bullied by the players of the Freedom Alliance.
However, due to William’s two S level missions that were assigned to the players, most of them were deployed to other locations.
Only the players who were touring scenic locations and the players who were trying out their luck had journeyed to Emerald Grand Duchy!
“Gosh, it’s the BOSS team. I saw the BOSS team with four Legendary and two Epic professionals,” shouted a player. And within a short period of time, many players started to follow William and his companions.
Of course, the players knew that it was not easy to solicit missions from the BOSS.
Hence, the players did not approach William to ask for missions. They were just curious about William and his companions.
Recently, the players had noticed many teams of BOSSES that had Grandmaster or Epic members. It was rare to encounter a team with four Legendary professionals.
“Perhaps they are geniuses from the Human empires and are here for training,” a player suggested.
“Um, perhaps. I’ve read many historical books. The kingdoms and empires have Battle Energy Colleges and Magic Skills Colleges. Before graduation, they will journey to different locations for adventure. I’m guessing that the six of them are from the colleges.”
When William overhead their conversations, he almost laughed out loud!
Fortunately, he restrained himself.
William also got to know that the players of the Freedom Alliance were bullying the players of the City of Dawn.
“MD, I can’t take it.” William transmitted a message to an intel officer who was stationed here.
In less than ten seconds, William got to know the stronghold location of the players of the Freedom Alliance.
That was right.
The players of the Freedom Alliance were developing very well. Even though they did not enjoy powerful support, they had managed to secure a guild stronghold from the local officials. It was located in a small town not far from the capital.
From a geographical viewpoint, it was on a good transportation route.
Although the capital was huge, the land was expensive. Even if the players were to accumulate their resources, they were unable to obtain a large guild stronghold.
William informed his five companions to find a resting place while he scooted off.
One hour later, William managed to find the Freedom Alliance’s stronghold in a small town west of the capital.
He saw many players.
They were organizing a large scale guild mission.
William managed to observe ‘Light of Freedom’ at close proximity. This player was the one who always slandered him on the forum!
Light of Freedom was standing on the high platform, as he shouted, “The players of the City of Dawn are expanding rapidly in this area. For these bewitched players, we’ll try to make them defect to the Freedom Alliance.
“If they don’t yield to righteousness, then we’ll fight them.
“We’ll kill all the players from the City of Dawn six times every day so that they will downgrade to level 10.
“We have to make them understand that the horn of freedom has not vanished. Our Freedom Alliance requires more righteous warriors to join our ranks.”
“The guild leader is right. We’ll overthrow the City of Dawn and kill that foolish William!”
“Yes, yes, yes. If not for the City of Dawn, Goethe Nasis would not have perished!”
“If not for the death of Goethe Nasis, why would our Freedom Alliance degenerate at such a fast pace?”
Light of Freedom surveyed his players admiringly. He was very pleased because he did not expect the players to be easily goaded.
It was a good feeling to be in power.
Light of Freedom clenched his fists, looking at the sky. He was in full anticipation of the future.
But suddenly, a loud booming explosion occurred!
The door of the guild stronghold was blown to smithereens.
Tens of thousands of players turned their heads to look at the intruder.
It was a Legendary warrior!
They recognized him immediately.
He was a highly dangerous Legendary BOSS!
Light of Freedom was curious why a Legendary warrior would intrude here. He started to capture the video while walking towards the intruder. Light of Freedom was about to speak.
But in the next second, William extended his palm and grabbed the head of Light of Freedom to stop him from talking.
Meanwhile, William glanced at the players and the fearful Light of Freedom. Then he coldly said, “This is the noble’s territory. Why are you propagating freedom? Are you tired of living?”
In the next moment, a cracking sound could be heard.
The skull of Light of Freedom had been crushed!
William did not use any weapons or activate his Thunder shield. He just made use of his speed to cut through tens of thousands of players.
The players were terrified by the professional BOSS as they were unable to inflict any damage even though he did not have any shields!
The BOSS was too powerful!
He was muscular!
And his skin was tough!
It was a bloody massacre of the Intermediate players by an Advanced Legendary professional.
When Light of Freedom revived in the stronghold, he would be instantly killed!
After tens of minutes later, tens of thousands of players perished so many times that they did not dare to revive in their stronghold.
William destroyed the stronghold’s stone tablet with his palm!
The guild stronghold that was painstakingly built by the players was in ruins…
William pursued the players to the town and killed them six times. The players were forced to hide offline.
William killed the players until they gave up reviving.
A vampire noble watched the massacre at the sideline. He did not want to send troops to intervene because it was suicidal.
This vampire was very curious about how the chosen ones had antagonized the Legendary BOSS. But it was none of his business, so the vampire did not intervene…
As such… the Freedom Alliance’s guild was utterly destroyed.
Tens of thousands of players went to the forum to condemn the game officials why they allowed a Legendary BOSS to destroy their stronghold.
William wanted the players to know that it was not the end.
William would send his spies to follow the players. If they dared to gather together, William would disguise himself as a black-robed BOSS to kill all of them!
Until the players quit their guild.
Or until they quit the game.
William wanted to tell them that it was not a big deal to antagonize an NPC!
However, this NPC had once been a player, and William would definitely teach them a good lesson.
Was it fun to be a keyboard warrior?
William wanted them to disappear permanently from the Gods world!
