Hail The King Chapter 577
Fei stood on the deck of [King Alexander] and quickly got pushed aside by the emotional crowd. Under the protection of a few bylaw enforcement officers, he slowly walked to his future father-in-law, Bast, and the military leader, Brook, who were walking toward him as well.
You arrived earlier than we expected Bast fixed his hair and clothes before smiling and patting Feis shoulder. He was really pleased with this future son-in-law of his.
Although only half a year past by, Bast aged a lot. His hair turned whiter, and he got a lot thinner. Even though he seemed energetic, the fatigue couldnt be hidden.
Fei felt a little guilty.
While Fei led the troop of Chambord and battled enemies, all the administrative duties and tasks were handled by Bast and only a few other people. The Chambord Kingdom was in a little chaotic state to begin with, and there were a lot of things to fix. On top of that, there was the reconstruction and renovation project. There was a lot of work to be done, and people like Bast and Brook had been working tirelessly for the last while.
A surprised shout sounded, and Angela dashed past Fei to hug her father. In her lifetime, she had never been away from her father for this long. Therefore, she missed him dearly.
Brook, thanks for the hard work.
Fei said as he looked at Brook who had been following him for the longest time.
This man who was burly and muscular was now almost as thin as a spear, and he looked tired as well. The bags under his eyes were big, and it looked like he hadnt had a good night sleep in a while.
Since he spent a lot of time on managing the tasks in the kingdom, his cultivation strength didnt improve that much. Even though his body was reformed by the [Hulk Potion], and Fei recreated a cultivation technique for him, he hadnt reached the Five-Star level yet. Currently, he was a top-tier Four-Star Warrior.
Compared with his peers who started serving the king around the same time, he was one of the weakest.
Even Torres, who was a weak and powerless young man back then, was now a mid-tier Eight-Star Warrior who had an insane archery skill.
However, despite all that, Brook was one of the most non-replaceable subordinates that Fei had.
Fei felt guilty toward this man.
He knew that Brooks talent was better than people like Torres and Drogba. If he were given the same amount of resources and werent distracted by the administrative tasks, he might have became a Moon-Class Elite already.
It is my honor to serve Your Majesty and the kingdom! Brook was very excited to see the king again; his voice was even shivering a little. Currently, he was wearing the same armor that he wore when he fought the black-armored enemies alongside Fei; it was very symbolic.
As this man was about to single-kneel, Fei quickly walked up and stopped him.
The king didnt say anything; he only patted Brooks shoulder.
At this moment, the overly-excited citizens of Chambord finally noticed their king.
Tens of thousands of citizens kneeled and worshipped their great and unique lord!
Hail the king!!
Long live Alexander His Majesty!!
The chants and cheers of tens of thousands of people sounded louder than a tsunami, and Fei felt a unique sense of accomplishment when showering in it. He earned it all by himself! The journey from an idiot king who was hated by his citizens to a great ruler who was worshipped by his people wasnt easy, and Fei worked hard to obtain it.
Hazel Bank and Jessie, who represented darkness and brightness respectively, stood behind Fei quietly.
The Undead Mage had stabilized his Sun-Class Realm, and he now had complete control of his aura. Even without the god-fooling badges, Jessie who was standing about a meter away couldnt detect Hazel Banks real identity. If this mage werent in battle, others wouldnt be able to tell that he was an undead mage.
Although Jessie was severely injured in battle not long ago, one of the unique abilities of the holy power was to heal people. Jessie was an outstanding priest; as long as he wasnt dead, he could recover from any severe external injuries in a day or so.
Even though the Undead Mage had lived for hundreds of years and saw a lot of big events and the Priest experienced a variety of emotions during his ascetic lifestyle, they both felt strange hearing the loud cheers coming from tens of thousands of people.
These two people were all unique in their own ways, and they could see through people. They saw the crazy passion and admiration in these peoples eyes, and they could tell that it was a strong power. Once ignited, these citizens would be willing to do anything to help their king defeat their enemies.
The two masters of different backgrounds got the same first impression of Chambord.
This celebration ended after about 40 minutes had passed.
According to the plan set by Bast and others, there was going to be a grand celebration in the evening, officially welcoming the king and the militarys return.
When people got to the foot of the defense wall, a series of chanting and metal gear-gliding sounds appeared. Then, a portal-like light gate appeared in front of everyone. After it sounded like a metal fence was pulled up, the people started to walk into the light gate and were instantly teleported into the city.
The soldiers and warriors who just returned were all surprised and understood why there was no gate anymore; this teleportation mechanism took care of everything.
This mechanism was a simple short-distance teleportation array that was also recorded in [Demon Kings Wisdom]. In the Mythical Era, this array was commonly used; even small villages used it. However, as that era came to an end, most of the magic technologies went extinct.
Akara and Cain consulted [Demon Kings Wisdom] and recreated such a teleportation array, upgrading Chambords defense.
Standing on [The Throne of Chaos] that was placed on Blackys back, Fei and Angela traveled through the familiar yet strange streets.
The Chambord Castle was huge to begin with.
The Chambordians didnt create it; instead, it was an ancient city from previous eras that was discovered by the ancestors of the Chambordians. The design of the city was beyond Chambords current knowledge and capabilities, and this half reconstruction and half renovation project made the city feel brand-new.
Fei could tell that the Chambord Castle underwent some significant changes.
Every 100 meters or so, there would be a secret location with a ton of magic energy surge, and the magic energy surge in the city was several times more powerful compared with before. Huge magic arrays protected every region of the city; there were a total of nine small altars and 36 magic towers that were more than ten meters tall. Magic engravings connected everything, offering Chambord its own unique magic defense system.
With this new defense system, if there were enough magic energy, the black-armored enemies wouldnt be able to get a speck of dust off the defense wall of Chambord in 50 years.
Except for the new magic defense system, there were other new structures in the city.
Every 1,000 meters or so, there would be a small barrack that was tightly guarded and well equipped with powerful weapons.
Around the barracks, there were gigantic military crossbows called [Dragon Slayers]. They were also from [Demon Kings Wisdom], and they were created by the beautiful blacksmith from Diablo World, Charis, with the help from the blacksmiths in Chambord.
These [Dragon Slayers] only occupied a space about ten square meters each, and they were mobile. They were magic weapons that were powered by the magic gems inlaid in the bodies of the crossbows, and about five to six ordinary soldiers could operate one with ease! The huge magic arrows it could shoot out were capable of instantly killing anyone who was below Five-Star in strength.
Fei also discovered that there were stealth monitoring stations on the sides of the mountains, capable of view the city and the plain outside of the city.
On the two sides of the streets, there were many beautiful stone statues. These statues existed before the renovation, but they were modified and now behaved like street lights. The silver light from the magic lanterns inside these statues dispelled the darkness like the moonlight.
These statues were everywhere around the city, illuminating the Chambord Castle.
When Fei looked around more, he even discovered things like manholes, public washrooms, and magic traffic control lights.
If it werent for the exotic stone buildings and statues, Fei would think that he was back to his previous life where technologies were advanced.
After the renovation that was ordered by Fei, the Chambord Castle was now already a miracle city on this continent; nothing like it could be found.
