The defenders in the castle district of Winter Wolf surrendered? ! "

     When he heard the news, Philip stopped/stood directly from the chair, his eyes widening.

     "Yes, General." A ground force commander with soot on his face was standing in the hologram above the magic net terminal not far away. The background behind him was a large area of ruins still with smoke and fire. The soldiers in the busy operation, under the temporary lights in the distance, can also see the disarmed Typhon soldiers being escorted. "Their highest commanding officer gave up resistance, and now the shield in the castle area has been removed from the inside. Closed, we are taking over various areas of the castle."

     Philip frowned, just like he didn't understand why the Typhons suddenly started the war a few days ago. At this time, he also didn't understand why the other party chose to surrender. This is completely inconsistent with the current information on Winter Wolf Castle. The prejudgment of the behavior of the commanding officer does not conform to the tendency of the God of War to seek "a war that is as bloody as possible and expanding in scale" after the God of War loses control.

     "Relying on the strong fortifications of the castle, they could have continued to resist for a while-they could even expect to hold on until reinforcements arrive and get out of the predicament," a staff officer said in confusion next to him. Under the completely undamaged situation...The Typhonians surrendered like this? General, look at this matter...""There is no precedent for Typhon's'Wolf General' to surrender, not to mention that this generation of Wolf Generals seems to be a hardliner who is quite hostile to us. To be honest, I don't believe that the other party will surrender so simple," Philip shook the head "But they already closed the castle’s shields. Under the premise that our ground forces gradually take over the entire Winter Wolf Fortress, I can’t think of what else is there for their plan to comeback... In theory, if they really want to Continue to resist, then any plan is better than surrender."

     The staff member asked curiously: "General, what do you mean..."

     Philip raised his head and looked in the direction of the Monet terminal: "Have you been in contact with the opponent's highest commanding officer?"

     "Yes, General," the commander across from the communication channel nodded immediately, "has been in contact with her-but she said ‘to talk to someone who is the same’, I think she wants to talk to you directly."

     Philip pondered for a moment, then nodded: "I understand, I will quickly passed. You continue to carry out the takeover and cleaning work, and set up a forward camp on the spot, ready to respond to Typhon's counterattack or continue to advance east."

     "Yes, General!"


     Andesa is still lying on the bed, in fact it is still very difficult for her to move. The buzzing noise in her ears has been reduced a lot. The powerful physical fitness of high-level transcendents is quickly repairing the damaged parts of her body, and as her hearing is gradually restored, she can hear the noisy and busy movement outside.

     His last guard is being Disarm, and those Cecilians have completely taken over this place.

     They are right beside them.Andesa tried to move her eyes. She could see those Cecil soldiers wearing weird armor standing upright in various parts of the room, guarding this place vigilantly, while the ones who had taken care of and looked after her. The trusted soldiers were "invited" to other rooms after being Disarmed. In theory, they should be a period of time long before they can be seen.

     I can't see them... It's okay-the young wolf general in the heart cannot help thought so.

     Because she really didn’t know how to face her subordinates who were getting along day and night, whether it was those who were polluted by the God of War or who remained fully awake... She knew her Winter Wolf Knights and every person in it, they must all Already ready to fight to the final moments, even ready to use flesh and blood's body to resist those War Machines of the Cecilians. This castle could have continued to stand, and may even wait for reinforcements from the rear...but None of this was possible because their highest commanding officer chose to surrender after a bombing.

     After receiving the order, the entire Winter Wolf Knights chose to execute it without complaint... This made Andesha more sensed hard to describe pressure.

     As her thoughts drifted away, a pain suddenly came from a wound on her body, which interrupted Andesa’s thoughts, she muttered in a low voice, and her body moved slightly-this brought more pain of.

     "Try not to move, the new medicine is taking effect," a strange soldier's voice came from the side, with a little nervousness in his coldness, "Hold on again, a medical priest is coming."Andesa looks towards the sound and saw a young face, it was a Cecil soldier, or maybe a low-level officer-they are ordinary people without magic fluctuations, and their eyes are always swaying at this moment Moving around, Andesa really couldn't tell whether the person standing in front of yourself was a soldier or an officer.

     These Cecils at least have no defenders embarrassed to surrender... pretty good.

     Just as Andesa was thinking about this, she heard a sound of army boots stepping on the ground suddenly from the door of the room, and at the same time the young man's voice sounded in her ears: "Oh, the priest is here—"

     Medical priest? Pastor?

     Andesa opened her eyelids somewhat curiously and looked in the direction of the footsteps. Then she saw a woman who looked very young. She was dressed like a nun's dress, but she could see everywhere in the nun's dress. With devices like armor pieces, metal backpacks, and rune chains, this strangely-dressed "Miss Nun" walked towards herself, carrying a heavy-looking "battle staff" in his hand. I don't know if it does. The illusion of not belonging to oneself, the staff seemed to be stained with blood.

     Then the "Sister Cecil" came to Andesa's bed. She put the heavy battle staff on the ground with a "boom" and bent down towards Andesa, who saw the other side. Wearing some kind of glove with a mechanical structure-no matter how you look at it, it seems to have nothing to do with prayer or healing.

     This is the priest who is responsible for treating his injuries? How does Cecil's nun look like this?Andesa's heart is somewhat skeptical for an instant, even though it doesn't seem to be the time to care about such details, she still can't help but screamed in a low voice: "Wait a minute, I still..."

     "Don't move," the young nun said immediately, and pressed Andessa's shoulder, "Your left eye is already blind-I don't want to accidentally break your other eye."

     Andesa fell silent, and then twitched her mouth, a bit relieved in her bitterness: "...Is she really blind?"

     "If you cooperate enough, you may be able to grow back someday in the future-after all, Cecil Technology World's First." The nun seemed to say happily, with a confident tone of as it should be by rights in her tone.

     Andesa listened to the other person, but she was silent and did not speak.


     Per Dinan felt like he had fallen into a long, weird, gloomy and depressing nightmare. In this nightmare, he seemed to be replaced by another individual, doing terrible things in an ignorant state. However, in the nightmare, he was Always feel that he is sober-some kind of power has distorted his perception of the entire world, what he sees is no longer what he really sees, what he does is no longer what he really wants to do, he just Like a clown puppet swaying before shaking the candlelight, desperately doing seemingly normal movements-but casting a twisted and weird shadow on the ground that can't be distinguished.

     And at a certain moment afterwards, he suddenly woke up, everything in the nightmare disappeared from the disguise, drenched with blood appeared in front of him, and he found that the things in the nightmare... seemed to have happened.Rosetta Augustus looked at Pei Dinan who suddenly sat up from the middle of the magic circle, and there always seemed to be a slight smile on his somewhat gloomy face: "Pei Dinanqing, you finally'woke up'."

     Pei Dinan was panting heavily, as if he was about to clean out all the dirty things in his body with a quick breath. He finally felt that his heart and spirit had recovered and stabilized, so he had spare time to observe the surrounding situation-this is a room It looks like a closed room in a magic laboratory, with no windows and only a small door. The bright magic spar lights illuminate the entire room, and all nearby walls are engraved with twists and turns.

     Pei Dinan found that there seemed to be no other furnishings except runes in this room, and even the place where he lay was a circular magic circle engraved with runes.

     "Your Majesty," the old prince finally recovered. The repressed memories and correct cognitions in his mind were all crazily "backlashing", allowing him to realize the terrible things that happened in the previous few days in just a few seconds. The former General Wolf, who has experienced countless winds and rains, can't help feeling a chill at this moment, "I may be contaminated! Before I..."

     "I know, I know, Pei Dinanqing, things have happened-you need to calm down further," Rosetta Augustus expression was calm said, "It's really bad, but it's not too bad."

     Pei Dinan Shen took a deep breath and stood up from the magic circle, his tone was quick: "We and Cecil...""Already entered War State-the war we declared first, or the war declared by the God of War for us," Rosetta looked at Perdinant’s eyes, "Perdinant, Malm Dunit uses the power of mental interference Blinded and distorted your perception, the explanation we sent to Cecil was tampered with into a declaration of war, but this is not your fault."

     At this moment, Peri Dinan felt his heart stop for a beat, but he stopped the tendency to fall into dizziness. After realizing that the incident was irreversible, he seemed to suddenly notice the abnormality in this room——

     It seems to be a magic laboratory here, and you can see runes-like things everywhere, but after reading it carefully, he discovered that those magic runes were not the magic runes he knew. The twists and turns lines are complicated and exquisite, but the style is not like any race on the land. When looking at them, Pei Dinan felt that his depressed mood quickly calmed down and became clear, and there were still some muddy thoughts. It quickly became extremely clear.

     The old duke asked subconsciously: "Your Majesty, this is..."

     "It's still in Obsidian Palace. This room is a laboratory of Ms. Windsor Mapel. If you are referring to those runes-they come from the deep sea, first brought to Cecil by the siren, and then by Cecil gave it to us as a gift. I think you should have seen a few samples of these runes, but it is indeed the first time you have seen a large-scale, completely spliced "barrier house" like this one."

     "Runes from the deep sea..." Some related information finally popped up in Pei Dinan's mind. He remembered that there was indeed such a thing, "Then these runes are used for...""Clean up your pollution," Rosetta said indifferently, "and make sure that you will not be affected by God's Will again for a period of time in the future-it seems to work well now."

     Pei Dinan felt the rapid improvement of his state of mind and realized that the "effect" that the other party said was really good, but in the next second, he thought of another thing.

     "Your Majesty, have you already known me..."

     "No, I don't have the ability of a seeder," Rosetta waved to interrupt Pedinan's words, "but I'm sure the pollution of the gods will spread to the upper echelons of the empire-I just hadn't thought the first to suffer The person who is polluted and completely unnoticed at first will be you, someone who has been consciously alienating from the church many years ago. From this aspect, I underestimated God's Will’s ability to penetrate the minds of mortals, but From on the other hand, we are now striving to improve to determine the law of infiltration and spread of'pollution', and to determine the range of people affected. These are very meaningful."

     Rosetta said very indifferently, and Pedinan quickly heard another meaning from the attitude and words of the imperial ruler——

     The emperor was indeed surprised, but what surprised him were only the "details", as for the direction of the entire matter... It seemed that until now still did not deviate from his judgment.

     Is this among which is included this war?

     "Your Majesty," Pedinan whispered after a few seconds of silence, "What are we going to do next?""The war broke out," Rosetta said as if talking to oneself, his sight did not fall on Per Dinan, "...the empire should enter a state of emergency."

     "Are you going to enable the emperor's highest ruling power?"

     "More than ten years ago, we tried to change this country into a new situation. We did this, and we did indeed achieve many feats that we didn’t even dare to think of, but now looking back, we still have many things left. Finished," Rosetta said calmly, "Some people who shouldn't survive are alive, and some things that shouldn't be preserved are still preserved... Don't you think this is regrettable?"

     "It's really regrettable," said Perdinand Wendell, "it seems we can finish what we didn't finish that year - but another point, your majesty, we are in full-scale war with the Cecilians."

     "It's the crazy god who is at war with Cecil," Rosetta looked into Perdinan's eyes. "The out-of-control god is the common enemy of all mankind-this time, we are actually standing with Cecil. Aside."
