Twenty minutes later.
After a conversation, the ugly-looking barbarian hero with two short horns took the initiative to lead the way for the Twilight City troops under Xina’s supervision.
This dungeon hero named Gray Horn was very excited at this time.
God of the dungeon, he indeed persuaded these humans from the surface to go to Bloodyhoof City!
And they were honestly willing to use food to trade.
Praise the gods!!
The gray-colored dwarves’ war against Bloodhoof City had starkly destroyed a portion of the grain-producing areas that could still produce food previously.
Over the past few months, food was severely insufficient.
And most of the monsters in the underground world were highly toxic.
Unless one possessed the body of a black dragon, no one would dare to eat it.
The Bloodhoof City troops did not lose much, but they were still in a difficult situation.
They were short of food.
There was insufficient food in the underground, and this situation made it worse.
Gray Horn went out to search for this dungeon force.
The other purpose was to find out how much food they had left. If there were enough food, Bloodhoof City would immediately send out troops.
However, Gray Horn did not expect this exploration to have twists and turns.
First, this dungeon force discovered the passage to the surface. Then, the surface forces slaughtered the other party’s troops. Finally, the surface forces were very interested in trading with Bloodhoof City.
Twists and turns did not allow Gray Horn to have any expectations.
“Damn gray-colored dwarves! As long as there is enough food, the final victor will surely be the Great Bloodhoof City!”
Its eyes were unprecedentedly excited.
After they had walked for ten hours in the underground tunnel, there was finally news from the front… The underground world had arrived.
Richard’s eyes immediately sparked delight.
He led the troops and sped up.
Richard’s vision suddenly widened after a hundred meters of a walk.
In front of him was supremely a magical scene.
The sky was thousands of meters high, and the rocks formed the sky.
A special kind of moss grew on top of it. It gave off a white light and lit up the entire world.
Although one could not compare it to the surface, it was enough for him to see clearly from a thousand meters away.
Richard looked around, and the air had a slightly rotten smell of mud.
Mud grew various strange underground plants.
The twisted branches and leaves were like the withered palms of the undead.
He stood on an underground, connected to the sky dome above.
It was supremely spectacular.
Richard was amazed. It would have been a tourist area with more than a dozen A-rank tourist areas…
He returned to his senses and was about to call the ugly-looking barbarian hero with two short horns over.
Suddenly, dozens of armored wyverns appeared in the distant sky.
Behind each was fully armed cavalry.
Richard’s eyes focused.
“Prepare for battle!”
When he gave the order, the troops immediately set up a defensive line outside the cave.
The sand condensation archers and the undead soldiers of the Axe of the Dead rode on the dark gargoyles’ backs.
Thirty skeletal blood dragons with seemed ruby-carved bones flew up.
They glared at the armored wyverns that flew over.
Cunning troops that flew over the swamp slowed down when they saw this scene.
They let out low growls and did not dare to approach.
“Lord Richard, that is the army of Bloodhoof City!”
At this moment, Gray Horn hurriedly came forward to report.
It immediately explained while it looked at Richard’s sharp gaze.
“I found the four-armed half-snake man sent a message after it led the troop into the cave… They are not here to deal with you.”
When Richard heard this explanation, he told the troop to be alert, although his face softened slightly.
“Gray Horn, you can ask them to send a representative to talk to me.”
Gray horn immediately breathed a sigh of relief. He quickly rode on the dark gargoyle to communicate with the wyverns under Xina’s watch.
A moment later, a leading wyvern slowly landed on the wet ground in front of them.
The heavily-armored barbarians in the dungeon walked over.
The barbarians were slightly relieved to see that Gray Horn was safe. Then, they looked at surrounded Richard in the center.
“Bloodhoof City, Boer, a powerhouse from the surface. Thank you for forgiving Gray Horn.”
It clenched its fists as it spoke and hung them on its chest.
“I have always liked to make friends. Sir Gray Horn did not harm Twilight City.”
“The main reason for going underground this time is to trade with Bloodhoof City. I wonder if Bloodhoof City is using mithril to reward food and liquor as Sir Gray Horn said?”
Boer’s eyes widely beamed.
“Indeed. Bloodhoof City welcomes all friendly exchanges.”
Food was the biggest problem for every underground force.
Richard’s words were no different from telling a person dying of thirst in the desert that he was here to deliver water.
“But for the details of the transaction, please come to Bloodhoof City…”
As the strongest force in this region, Bloodhoof City ruled over a vast territory.
And the new ruler of Bloodhoof City, Sel Bloodhoof, was undoubtedly the person with the most authority.
As a young lord in his early thirties, he had amazing ambitions.
He wanted to completely conquer the underground world within three years!
But the gray-colored dwarves broke all of these plans three months ago.
These enemies suddenly launched an attack on Bloodhoof City.
And all this caused the death of the previous ruler of Bloodhoof City, his father.
Sel Bloodhoof had thought the gray-colored dwarves’ attack was just a ridiculous and comical performance and that the war would end soon.
But he did not expect that those lowly bastards who drove all kinds of strange mechanical puppets and enslaved powerful monsters would make the ferocious and fearless underground barbarians gradually retreat.
If it were not for the towering city walls that Bloodoof City had built for hundreds of years, the enemies might have defeated them when the other side launched their first attack.
In the underground, there was only one way to defeat — death.
Once an enemy breached Bloodhoof City, they would go from a dominant position to an unremarkable small force.
Because of that, he mobilized his troop at all costs and finally repelled the attack of the gray-colored dwarves after they paid unimaginable hardships.
The crisis was not over.
The food in Bloodhoof City had run out in the past few months.
If they could not find a new source of food…
Even if the enemies did not breach Bloodhoof City, they would still encounter an unprecedented disaster.
However, food was not rock or soil. One could not instantly obtain it.
Even if they found a suitable land to cultivate now, they would still have to wait a long time before they could harvest it.
However, the turning point came half an hour ago.
The spy reported…that a force on the surface had gone deep underground and was willing to trade with them.
And they exchanged the food they had saved up.
“What do you all think of that human lord?”
Inside the city lord’s mansion in the center of Bloodhoof City.
Sel Bloodhoof wore a black bird-feather coat and sat on a throne inlaid with thousands of gemstones. His gaze scorched as he looked at the ten clans below.
They were all the higher-ups of Bloodhoof City.
When he heard this question, a clan leader stood up and loudly said.
“Lord Sel, the surface is full of gold and food, and there are countless clear water sources.
“I suggest we imprison that lord directly, interrogate the passage leading to the surface, and send troops to conquer the surface!
“As long as we occupy the surface rich in resources, we will no longer lack food.”
Another clan leader heard these ridiculous words and immediately stood up and shouted.
“No, Lord Sel, we can not make any more enemies! The gray-colored dwarves are our main enemy now!
“I suggest we cooperate with the surface humans. We need a lot of food! The other party came with good intentions. We will be the first to lose if we offend them and cancel the deal!
“Moreover, the surface resources are so abundant. The troop they can raise will be stronger. We can’t conquer them just like that!
“Shut up, you coward. How can the Great Bloodhoof City cooperate with the greedy surface humans?!”
“Idiot, now we need food! If you have the ability, go get the food back!!”
The heated discussion continued…
Just as the topic dropped, the pros and cons that supported and opposed cooperation instantly fell into a quarrel.
When Sel Bloodyhoof saw this, he frowned.
He stood up abruptly and was about to get angry when a horn sounded.
He immediately swallowed the words in his throat.
“The human lord has come!”
“Come out with me to welcome him!”
As soon as he finished speaking, he stepped down from the throne.
However, his pupils constricted when he stepped out of the door.
At the end of his line of sight, he saw over a hundred armored wyverns protecting dozens of undead dragons that had a wingspan of more than 20 meters. The bones all over their bodies seemed to be carved out of rubies as they slowly flew into the city.
What was even more shocking was that.
A 5-meter mechanical puppet floated in front of the troop.
Even though the mechanical puppet’s outer shell was badly damaged, the aura it exuded made him feel as if a mountain pressed down on his chest.
Every breath became difficult.
That power…was extraordinary?!
Shock brimmed his eyes.
The higher-up barbarians in the dungeon still indignant and wanting to send out troops to capture the human lord had their bodies stiffened at this moment. Their expressions became rather ugly.
A hint of relief rose in their hearts.
Fortunately, they did not attack.
The human lord’s power was not something they could easily control!
Sel took a deep breath and looked at the expressions of the people around him. He immediately knew how to face the human lord.
A smile appeared on his face as he slowly walked up to him.
Bloodhoof City was the friendliest and most hospitable city…
