Archean Eon Art - Chapter 145
Chapter 145 – On Archean Mountain
Archean Mountain, night.
The long-haired Qin Wu was flipping through books in the study.
“Come in,” said Qin Wu.
Archean Mountain Lord smiled as he walked in with a thick dossier. He placed the dossier on the desk and said with a smile, “Supremacy, this is today’s dossier.”
“Oh?” Qin Wu put down the book and opened the dossier. He read, “North River Pass suffered a demon invasion at 07:45?”
“It was considered a great victory,” said Archean Mountain Lord with a nod. “No Godfiends died in battle, and less than a thousand mortal soldiers died in battle. That punk Zhang Yunhu praised Meng Chuan to the heavens in the dossier. He had an impregnable defense when facing numerous demon monarchs and seized the opportunity to kill five third Firmament demon monarchs. He released lightning to kill over 30,000 mortal demons. The plan to kill mortal demons was proposed by Meng Chuan.”
“Not bad.” Qin Wu nodded slightly. “At least he didn’t embarrass himself on his first battle.”
“There’s no problem with the credits awarded, right?” asked Archean Mountain Lord. “Over 30,000 mortal demons were killed by him alone. It’s counted as 300,000 credits. We have decided to give him 513,000 credits for this battle.”
“No problem.” Qin Wu flipped through the entire dossier and agreed with Archean Mountain Lord’s allocation of credit.
The allocation of credit was divided into many aspects. Ensuring that North River Pass didn’t fall was a great contribution! No Godfiends dying in battle was a meritorious deed! Killing demon monarchs was a meritorious deed as well! Credit was also divided into confirmed kills and kill assists. For example, when Zhang Yunhu killed a demon monarch, Meng Chuan and the others had provided him cover. One cast a domain, another cast illusions; all of them were given kill assist credits.
When it came to killing a mortal demon, a mortal demon gave ten credits! This was normal. The ordinary Godfiends were able to fend off the second Firmament demon monarchs and countless mortal demons. Many of the credits earned from killing ordinary demons were distributed to Liu Qiyue, Fan Cheng, and the twenty-plus Godfiends. Meng Chuan and the other five were given a small split. However, killing over 30,000 demons in one go gave Meng Chuan 300,000 credits. Yan Jun—who was responsible for delivering the rain—and Zhang Yunhu, who took command of the battlefield, also received some credit.
“Earning 510,000 credits in a single battle. If this continues, he’ll be made an earl in about ten years,” said Archean Mountain Lord.
“The demons won’t give him a chance next time,” said Qin Wu.
Meng Chuan had killed over 30,000 demons this time. He had also heavily injured a large number of demons. This had a tremendous impact! Without this move of his, there would’ve been an additional 400 to 500 demons that scaled the outer city wall! This would’ve increased the casualties of the mortal soldiers by 50 percent. From Archean Mountain’s point of view, every mortal soldier’s life was precious. To avoid the loss of so many soldiers, it was more meritorious than killing those demon monarchs.
Qin Wu frowned slightly as he read through the other contents of the dossier. “Something happened to Two World Island again?”
“Yes, a stable World Entrance appeared deep in the sea. As it’s a small World Entrance, the commotion was tiny. Furthermore, it was a remote area in the sea. By the time Two World Island discovered it, it can be confirmed that a large number of demon monarchs have infiltrated the human world,” said Archean Mountain Lord. “Supremacy Thousand Leaves of Two World Island and three Regis Godfiends have scoured the waters in question repeatedly. They have also captured a portion of the demon monarchs. After interrogating them, we can confirm that over 700 demon monarchs have infiltrated. As for Supremacy Thousand Leaves and the rest, they have only found 503. The rest have probably crossed the sea and infiltrated the three dynasties.”
“Their Two World Island occupies so many islands in the sea. How many small World Entrances have they missed?” Qin Wu was furious. “Our Archean Mountain and Black Sand Grotto-Heaven have seas too. Why haven’t we made any major mistakes in the past 300 years?”
“I’m not sure. There are even more World Entrances on their side. The strength of Two World Island is the weakest among the three great sects,” said Archean Mountain Lord.
“Let the Earth Net work on searching and pursuing the demon monarchs,” instructed Qin Wu. “Those demon monarchs who infiltrated the human world for the first time are typically more showy and lively. It’s easier to find them.”
“Yes,” said Archean Mountain Lord respectfully.
In history, when city passes were breached, a group of demon monarchs would take the opportunity to charge in and infiltrate the human world.
However, because Archean Mountain would dispatch experts over at the fastest speed possible, there weren’t many demon monarchs who could infiltrate in a short period. After all, the demons needed time to gather demon monarchs! As for Two World Island… for a stable World Entrance to appear without them immediately realizing it existed allowed many demon monarchs to infiltrate the human world.
Although the sea was vast, it was mostly seawater. There were very few places where the demon monarchs could hide. After large-scale sweeps, most of them could be killed. However, once they hit land and completely hid in the human world, it would be difficult to find them.
Meng Chuan did not know about the Supremacy’s and Archean Mountain Lord’s troubles.
He only needed to guard North River Pass and patrol the surrounding areas. He just needed to do his job properly.
Of course, when he learned that Archean Mountain had given him over 500,000 credits, Meng Chuan was shocked and conflicted. His grandaunt had been a Godfiend for 80 years. Apart from spending a little on herself, she had given him slightly more than 180,000 credits. In just one battle, he had accumulated more credits than his grandaunt had over 80 years.
However, he knew that his grandaunt was only an ordinary Indestructible Godfiend! If she were at North River Pass, she would be the most ordinary Godfiend.
The ones responsible for defending against the second Firmament demon monarchs and countless mortal denibs at North River Pass were Liu Qiyue, Fan Cheng, and the two Godfiend deputy generals, Qiu Qi and Feng Qianfan. Together with the two Archean Mountain sharpshooters, they were the core. The other ordinary Indestructible Godfiends were relatively weaker! Liu Qiyue alone could match the combined efforts of over 20 Indestructible Godfiends when it came to killing second Firmament demon monarchs.
The number of demon monarchs that Fan Cheng could fend off matched Qiu Qi, Feng Qianfan, and a large number of Godfiends.
Battle credits were divided according to strength. How much of a role they played resulted in the amount of credit they received.
An ordinary Indestructible Godfiend might only get one-fifth of the credits a Great Solar Godfiend like Qiu Qi and Feng Qianfan earned. Qiu Qi and Feng Qianfan only earned about a fifth of Fan Cheng’s! Fan Cheng also earned less than Zhang Yunhu in credits. Meng Cheng’s strength and Liu Qi’s sharpshooter abilities allowed them to receive credits equivalent to Zhang Yunhu under normal circumstances.
At Meng Chuan and Zhang Yunhu’s level, it was normal for them to receive 200,000 to 300,000 credits in each battle. How much did his grandaunt earn per battle? How many times did she fight a life-and-death battle to accumulate 180,000 credits?
“Grandaunt.” Meng Chuan felt immense gratitude for his grandaunt.
Unfortunately, his grandaunt had passed away.
I will lead the family clan well as you requested. I will slay more demon monarchs. You will be able to boast to your old friends in the netherworld. At this moment, Meng Chuan also felt the importance of strength. A powerful expert could earn more credits on one occasion than what others would take a lifetime to earn. This was reality! For example, if North River Pass had a Marquis Godfiend presiding over it, it would immediately become impregnable. The Marquis Godfiend alone would be stronger than ten Great Solar Godfiend elites.
Meng Chuan continued cultivating at North River Pass.
After the demons attacked, they lost ten third Firmament demon monarchs, dozens of second Firmament demon monarchs, and 100,000 demons. They naturally needed time to replenish their ranks. They needed a way to deal with the tough Meng Chuan.
Spring passed, and it welcomed the scorching summer.
On 3rd June, it was almost the hottest day at North River Pass. On this day, Meng Chuan finally reached a critical juncture in the body cultivation system.
