- Tavern in Another Dimension:Getting the Elf Queen Drunk at the Start
- Chapter 146 - The Magical Rock City
As Alan pushed out the beer in the tavern, it became popular again.
Unlike the hustle and bustle in the city, there was a group of people outside the city who would meet at a fixed time every once in a while and exchange information they had recently discovered.
Roders had never given up on invading Rock City. Now that they had the secret help of the ghouls, it was impossible for them to retreat now.
“How is it? What information do you have today?”
The man who looked like the leader looked at his subordinates and asked.
“Captain, Rock City has changed too much recently…”
“It’s different from the last time when we went to attack the tavern. Those streetlamps by the roadside are really convenient…”
“Yes, it’s the first time I saw it light up at night. I thought it was a magic tool!”
“If it really is a magic tool, then Rock City is way too prosperous!”
As one person opened his mouth to praise, the group of people around him followed suit.
Until the man who was the leader couldn’t stand it anymore. How could his own team member be so arrogant and destroy his own prestige.
The man angrily rebuked, interrupting their subsequent discussion.
“I’m asking you to report the news of the past two days, not to listen to you praise the enemy!”
Seeing that their captain was angry, the others finally stopped their discussion.
The leader of the men saw that his subordinate had returned to the main topic, and his expression softened as he started the discussion again.
“Tell me, what news have you found!”
The man’s expression was serious.
This group of knights were the Roders knights who had been scared off by Ai Xiaohei back then.
Until now, Alan didn’t know when the tavern had become so popular.
Everybody wanted to join in. Ai Xiaohei and Yupanki didn’t tell him that Roders knights had tried to attack the tavern.
He had always thought that Rock City was very safe. Even the demon clan’s invasion was just a false alarm.
It was even more so after the problem of internal strife in the Imperial City was solved.
“Captain, Rock City’s development is the fastest in the continent right now. The electricity they use is known as a new type of energy source.”
“The streetlamps on the streets rely on the electricity generated by generators. They are quite bright. At night, we don’t dare to act rashly…”
After one of his subordinates finished speaking, the knight in the lead revealed a troubled expression. He also knew about this matter.
“The situation you mentioned is indeed a problem. I also know about it, but this is not a reason why you can’t complete the mission.”
Roders knight team was discussing countermeasures outside Rock City. No one in this group noticed that a strange person had appeared in their team.
This person was wearing a black cloak just like them. The knights were wearing armor inside, while he was wearing ordinary clothes.
Listening to the discussions of this group of people, that person went deep into thoughts. His good-looking face was unfortunately ruined by the gloomy look on his face.
If Wayne was here, he would definitely be able to recognize that this person was Foster, who had been sent by the ghouls to Rock City to gather intelligence.
He first went to the capital to confirm that the fifth prince was dead, then he left the capital and went to Rock City.
This serious injury was a good thing for Foster. At least when he returned to the ghouls, he received a lot of benefits.
He had not entered the city yet. He just happened to meet Roders knights and the others. After listening to the latest news with them, he became even more curious about Rock City.
That human named Wayne had clearly lost his magic more than ten years ago. How did he suddenly recover it?
All of this was related to that tavern in Rock City. It was the owner of that tavern, Alan!
From the discussions of this group of people, it could be heard that this Alan was the source of all miracles!
Foster listened attentively to their conversation, collecting all kinds of information that he could use. In his heart, he was recalling the information he had heard about Alan in the Imperial City.
All in all, that youth was a person who was good at creating all kinds of miracles!
Foster wrote down the information that he wanted to hear and quietly separated from this group of people.
Just like when he appeared, no one knew when he left.
After Foster left, he quickly walked towards Rock City.
Under the night sky, Rock City was a nightless city that stood at the edge of the forest. The warm yellow lights emitted slight warmth in the night.
When Foster saw this scene, he was slightly absent-minded. Even he could not help but yearn for this city in front of him.
Along the way, he walked along the border and saw that the towns along the border were being harassed by the soldiers of Roders.
Those city governors had once sought help from the empire. Unfortunately, the Imperial City was busy with internal strife and had no time to care about it. It was not easy for the internal strife to subside. Finally, reinforcements arrived.
The troops that had been ordered by the fifth prince to head for the Imperial City had returned to their original positions before the situation at the border could not be salvaged.
After Roders’s main force was repelled, only the Rock City, which was located in a remote location far away from the political center of the empire, still had some forces remained. There were still some knights who stayed where they were, waiting for their monarch to pass on the follow-up plan.
While recalling what he had seen and heard along the way, he connected it to the information he had obtained from the conversation between the knights. Basically, he had confirmed that the target he was looking for was not simple at all!
For the ghouls, concealment and hiding skills were their innate skills. Even if there was a light in Rock City that made it very hard to hide himself, Forster still managed to sneak into the city smoothly.
He originally thought that his strength would not only return to normal after being treated by the patriarch after the previous serious injury, but his strength would also increase by another level. A small border city would have a powerhouse like Wayne, it was impossible for there to be someone stronger than him.
After all, among the human powerhouses, he had already found out where the people who were stronger than him were.
Foster was sure that there was no one stronger than him in Rock City!
So after entering the city, Foster found an inconspicuous spot near the city wall.
Just as he was about to activate his scouting spell, a strong light shot straight at him.
“Who are you over there!”
The city guard holding a big lamp shouted.
It was unknown how Foster had done it. After being scolded, he instantly disappeared from where he was, leaving behind a dull-looking soldier and the bright street lamps on the street.
“What’s wrong with you? It’s so late and you’re shouting so loudly. Do you want to get complain?”
Another soldier poked his head out from the hole in the city gate and said.
The management of Rock City was getting better and better. After midnight, anyone who made too much noise and was complained by the residents would be fined.
It was said that this rule was proposed by Alan. Originally, he had hoped that everyone could go home early so that he could close early.
As the reputation of the tavern soared and the sound insulation effect was quite good, everyone expressed that the tavern could not be bound by this rule.
“I saw a person in the corner just now. I don’t know what he was doing, but he disappeared as soon as I spoke…”
The soldier holding the lamp said with a blank expression.
“You must be wrong. How come there’s still people in the middle of the night?”
The person in the doorway poked his head out to take a look. He didn’t find anything, so he started to scold his colleague.
The two of them scolded each other as they walked into the doorway.
Foster, who seemed to have disappeared, was actually still standing straight in the corner. He didn’t move at all. If one looked carefully, one could even see the fine beads of sweat on his forehead.
“What’s going on? I’ve already used the concealment spell. How did that soldier find me?”
Foster muttered softly.
