The Lord's Empire Chapter 922
“Roarrr!” in the distance, a mournful and pained dragon’s cry sounded out. It came from Cambodia, as the Khmer Empire was also destroyed, following which the rest of Cambodia fell.
“System announcement! All regions in Cambodia have been conquered by Great Qin, and Cambodia has perished. All of its Fate has fused into Great Qin and has become Great Qin’s Fate.”
After hearing this system announcement, Zhao Fu gave a satisfied smile; the four countries had finally been destroyed by Great Qin. In the future, there would be no more battles in the northern side. Now, they waited for Great Qin’s people to come and take care of the situation, while Zhao Fu headed towards where Bai Qi had stalled the various factions.
Now that everyone heard these system announcements, they felt a chill through their hearts, and their faces became pale. There was no point in hurrying over anymore, so countless City Lords started to retreat. By the time Zhao Fu arrived, they had already run off.
The battle finally concluded, and it ended with Great Qin’s victory. The price was the fall of the four countries, and what shocked everyone even more was that the players of the four countries had disappeared.
This was incredibly shocking as it was not just a few people but almost everyone from those four countries.
This was because when each country was about to fall, everyone from those countries received a system announcement. Those in the real world also went into the Heaven Awaken World to have a look, and they all had their real bodies brought by Great Qin into the Heaven Awaken World.
Once this news was spread, the entire world felt quite fearful, as they sensed that there was a connection between this matter and Great Qin destroying the four countries in the Heaven Awaken World.
Great Qin had been quite extreme this time; almost everyone from those four countries had disappeared so that there would not be any future troubles. Where had those people gone? Were they still alive or were they dead? No one knew, but since it was Great Qin who had won, the outcome definitely would not be good.
Another country that vanished was Vietnam. Now that five countries had disappeared, the rest of the world fell silent. Great Qin had already displayed monstrous strength and it seemed that the destroyed countries were not only destroyed in the Heaven Awaken World but in the real world as well. It was possible that Great Qin had slaughtered all of them.
This was quite terrifying, as the real world was their place of refuge. If this place of refuge was gone, no one was safe anymore.
Many factions opposing Great Qin started to consider submitting. The alliance’s morale greatly plummeted, and the system factions to the east and west of Great Qin understood that they definitely were not a match for Great Qin. They did not want to perish, so they raised the white flags and submitted to Great Qin.
The system factions that were unwilling to submit did not dare to stay either; they could only relocate to other regions and hope to receive protection there.
In the end, Great Qin was still able to unify the northern side of the Midland Continent. This was a big step for Great Qin, and it was a turning point in human history. Great Qin had undoubtedly become the most powerful force in the human world, causing the many countries to feel terror. In later times, this event was referred to as the ‘Destruction of Five Countries.’
By now, Great Qin had accepted all of the system factions that had surrendered and killed all those resisted. It was now time to deal with the players.
Players were worse than ordinary indigenous residents, and Zhao Fu did not want any of them. They were greedy and cowardly, making them unusable, but if he had to kill them all, that would be hundreds of millions of lives.
Just as Zhao Fu had this thought, even Bai Qi could not help but try to persuade him against it. After all, these people had all given up resisting, and there were so many of them. Even Bai Qi could not bring himself to slaughter them.
Zhao Fu gathered the players from the five countries. The Vietnamese factions that had surrendered and helped were naturally given beneficial treatment – they were allowed to directly become part of Great Qin, which was what they dreamed of.
The ordinary Vietnamese players who had trusted them were incredibly furious. After all, they greatly trusted those people, yet they had been lied to and tricked twice.
However, even though they felt furious, they could only endure it, or else they would die. Before, they had been unafraid because they had the Two Body Talismans, but Great Qin had brought all of their bodies into the Heaven Awaken World, cutting off all paths for them.
“If His Majesty comes, you better all obediently kneel down. If you show any disrespect to His Majesty, your entire family will die,” a big man wearing armor, with a savage-looking face, said to the group of players.
The players looked at Great Qin’s soldiers around them in fear and obediently knelt, waiting for the arrival of Great Qin’s Legatee.
However, some people refused to obey, such as a hooligan-looking young man. He tilted his head up, looking quite condescending, and he even groped the bottom of the woman in front of him. That woman was furious but did not dare to say anything, as she was worried that soldiers would come over.
However, what she was worried about still happened. A black-armored soldier walked over without wasting any words and beheaded that person. Warm blood spurted on the people around him, causing a wave of cries.
That soldier glared at everyone and shouted, “If you continue yelling and disturb His Majesty, you’ll all die.”
This scared countless people into holding in their cries. Parents with children covered their children’s eyes, not wanting them to see such a bloody and cruel thing. Because that woman was in front of the young man, she got the most blood on her.
A person had died so casually as if they were killing livestock, making life seem incredibly cheap. That woman felt incredibly scared, and her body uncontrollably trembled. However, she held back her tears, or else the outcome would be death.
“Arghh!” Another cry sounded out as a stubborn elderly man, who refused to kneel, was also beheaded, and his head rolled on the ground. Ten or so more people were killed, after which everything became much more peaceful.
The corpses were dragged out and thrown to one side. Soon, around 100,000 people had been killed, forming small mountains. It was now deathly silent, and all the players knelt on the ground, not daring to make any sound.
“His Majesty has arrived!” A loud cry sounded out as the soldiers simultaneously knelt down. Zhao Fu walked out and looked at the players and coldly harrumphed. He still remembered how intensely they had resisted and all those suicide attacks they had launched.
Even though Zhao Fu had decided not to slaughter them, he had already made plans for them. He said, “Before, We had decided to kill you all, but the Ministers begged for mercy on your behalf, so We will spare you this time.
“However, because of your resistance, all of you will be made the lowest level of residents. Only by making contributions will you become true subjects of Great Qin. If any of you have any thoughts about betraying Great Qin or rebelling, your entire family will be killed.”
