Chapter 532: The Sleeping Manor
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
The sound of arrows piercing through the air gathered together, giving people a shocking feeling.
Five hundred Rhodok Sharpshooters fired in unison.
The archers’ shooting skills were without a doubt.
Five hundred arrows with extremely terrifying impact almost simultaneously struck the thick and heavy door of the small manor.
Although the door of this small manor was made of hard and heavy dragon-patterned wood, it was useless against these arrows.
This was a siege crossbow. Within a short distance of 30 to 50 meters, the attack power of a siege crossbow was extremely lethal.
With a loud sound, five hundred bolts landed on the door of the small manor, making an extremely loud sound.
Then, the gate of the small manor made of thick and solid dragon-patterned wood was instantly covered with huge cracks that went through the top and bottom.
Immediately after, the gate shattered into pieces, turning into pieces of wood and lying on the ground.
This was also because the gate of the small manor was made of thick and solid dragon-patterned wood. If it was a bit weaker, it would probably be a small piece of wood on the ground.
Rhodok Sharpshooters fired in unison, and the thick and solid gate of the small manor was directly blasted open.
Kant and his troops all looked inside the already opened gate.
Behind the gate of the small manor was a medium-sized field.
This was used to gather soldiers. In order to maintain the elites of the soldiers, it was necessary to have this field for training.
However, there was no one on this field.
It was completely different from Kant’s guess.
There were no soldiers lying in ambush behind the gate.
This small manor looked empty, just like this East Main Road.
“The situation is extremely abnormal!”
Kant made a judgment.
“You guys, go in and investigate! If there’s danger, retreat with all your strength!”
“If the enemy is too strong and can’t escape, call out for help!”
Kant ordered 10 Swadian Royal Knights, 10 Sarleon Lion Knights, and 10 mages of the Enfath Empire to go in and investigate.
“Yes, my lord!”
The knights and mages that Kant ordered respectfully accepted Kant’s order.
The Swadian Royal Knights were much stronger in defense than the Sarleon Lion Knights, but their attack power was weaker. The mages had powerful spiritual power, and they were able to keenly observe various powers.
The previous ten Sarleon Lion Knights who were used as scouts had yet to return, which made Kant realize that something was definitely wrong with them. At this moment, even if they were facing a small manor, Kant would rather be cautious.
Things were completely off right now
After 30 knights and mages went in to investigate, the East Main Road returned to silence once again.
Time slowly passed.
The waiting time felt exceptionally long.
In fact, it was not long at all.
After only ten minutes, a Swadian Royal Knight came out of the small manor.
He was here to report to Kant while the others continued to investigate.
“My lord, everyone in this noble’s manor is in a deep sleep!”
The Swadian Royal Knight reported the situation to Kant.
“In a deep sleep?” Kant said in confusion.
“Yes, in a deep sleep! No matter if it’s the noble, the servant, the soldier, the knight, or even a grand knight, they are all in a deep sleep.”
Seeing that my lord was puzzled, the Swadian Royal Knight described the exact situation.
Kant frowned and pondered for a moment but could not think of a reason.
“Wake up the noble inside and bring him to me!”
Kant gave another order.
The Swadian Royal Knight left.
Soon, 30 knights and mages came out of the small manor.
A Sarleon Lion Knight was carrying a fat noble with brown hair slightly curled in one hand. He was fat and wore a velvet nightgown.
For a level 6 troop class, a Sarleon Lion Knight who could fight against a peak grand knight of the world, a fat man was not too heavy for him.
Kant noticed that this fat noble was still sleeping soundly. There was even a dirty smile on his face. Perhaps he was having a sweet dream.
Obviously, no matter whether it was Rhodok Sharpshooters firing in unison, the loud noise when they bombarded the door, or the knights and mages who was investigating, none of them could wake this guy up.
It would be strange if this was a normal sleep.
“What’s going on?” Kant’s gaze fell on the mage who was walking at the front.
When it came to the mysterious domain, whether it was mysterious events or extraordinary powers, the strong spiritual power and powerful senses of the mages always made it easier for them to understand and discover than others.
“My lord, this noble must have been cast by someone!”
Kant nodded slightly. This answer did not exceed his expectations.
The Association of Mages was located in the noble district.
The Association of Mages had always been protected by the noble. However, they took action against the noble, which made Kant feel a little strange.
However, if it was just to put the noble into a deep sleep, it would not be appropriate to use “took action”.
Perhaps, there was something about to happen, and he didn’t want them to know about it.
Kant thought about it.
He asked, “Someone cast a spell? What kind of spell is it? Are you unable to undo it?”
There were many types of spells that could put a person into a deep sleep status. It was obviously not something that a simple deep sleep spell could do.
“Lord, according to our investigation, this noble and the others in his manor are all under the same spell: Mind Imprisonment!”
Kant asked in surprise, “Mind Imprisonment? To confine so many people at the same time?”
Kant did not have much research on spells. However, before he made the decision to attack Lionheart City, he had already considered the Association of Mages and the War Temple.
Therefore, he had also studied the information on the Association of Mages. This was before he studied the information on the War Temple.
Therefore, he understood the extremely famous spell, Mind Imprisonment.
To cast Mind Imprisonment on a person, one first had to have a stronger spiritual power than the other party. Then, using one’s own spiritual power, one would construct a mental maze to trap the other party’s mind.
Therefore, it was not a big deal for a mage to use Mind Imprisonment on a person or a few people.
However, with so many people being imprisoned at the same time, it was a little scary.
This meant that either the other party’s spiritual power was very strong, to the point of being abnormal, or the other party had sent out an extremely large number of mages.
