Report Chapter

Gerian immediately went out with excitement when he heard about the legendary mage's visit, but halfway through, he stopped as doubt came over him. "Grimm Burnside never had any dealings with the Guild of Magic, why would he suddenly come calling?"

The mage who had pa.s.sed on the message swallowed his saliva and replied with seemingly much difficulty, "Said… said he came to see Mage Felic."

"…" Gerian stared at Lin Li with jealousy. "How did you know Grimm Burnside?"

"He attended the banquet at the Castellan Mansion a few days ago."

"d.a.m.n! Kid, your luck is extraordinary. There are only two legendary mages in Jarrosus and you know them both…"

Gerian grunted as he walked out of the Emerald Tower. He saw Grimm Burnside standing below the stairs in his gray mage robe and quickly put on a warm smile on his face. "Welcome, welcome. The Jarrosus Guild of Magic is deeply honored by Mage Grimm's visit to the Emerald Tower."

"You're too polite, President Gerian." Old Grimm still had the gentle smile on his face. He then directed his smile at Lin Li. "Long time no see, Mage Felic."

The three men exchanged greetings below the stairs, and Gerian solemnly escorted Old Grimm into the guild hall. For the Guild of Magic, Grimm Burnside's visit was truly a sensational event. Even Gerian, who was usually arrogant, dared not show a slight negligence; the reception was of the highest cla.s.s, enough to make the leaders of all the forces in Jarrosus red-eyed with envy.

In order to receive Grimm Burnside, Gerian had summoned all the mages in the guild; even those stationed far away in the Demon Fall Valley were to pa.s.s on their welcome message through the crystal ball in the hall. The scene was spectacular and lively, and even Grimm Burnside, who had lived for over a hundred years and regarded all things lightly, couldn't help but like Gerian a little more.

Looking at Gerian beaming away, Lin Li was worried for the leaders of the various forces in Jarrosus in spite of himself. Gerian had deliberately made it sensational so that news of this day's event could spread as far as possible. When the leaders of the 17 forces knew that the legendary mage had visited them, who knew how terrified they'd be…

After the impressive welcoming ceremony, Old Grimm and Lin Li went into the potion lab to continue the unfinished discussion they had had on the day of the banquet.

This time, Gerian, who always liked to be involved, did not follow them in.

He was in the guild hall, delivering a speech to all the mages.

The speech took a long time, but the content circled around a single topic—the Merlin Family and the Shadow's Nest had joined hands!

Such were Gerian's words: "You bunch of fellows are going to rot staying in the Emerald Tower for the whole day. From today onwards, everyone must hang around Jarrosus City. What you want to do is up to you; as long as it makes the Merlin Family uncomfortable, I will support it all. Whoever has the ability to do away with the b.a.s.t.a.r.d, Matthew, I will reward him with a year's worth of profits from the Demon Fall Valley!"

The Guild of Magic had put up with Gerian as long as the number of years he had been the president. Among the mages present, who had never experienced the contemptuous looks from others? Each and every one of the 17 forces in Jarrosus City had dared to throw their weight around the Guild of Magic. And among them, the Merlin Family had demanded from the guild time and again; even someone like Cromwell had dared to come up and demand that Gerian kick Lin Li out of the guild.

No matter how wise or how calm a mage was, it was inevitable to be antagonized in face of such reality.

"What… what money?"

The man from the Merlin Family only hesitated slightly and the few fellows who were at least the level of a Magic Shooter suddenly turned hostile. This was simply worse than a beast, totally not giving the other party a chance to admit they were wrong before smas.h.i.+ng the casino with their magic powers, then finis.h.i.+ng it off by igniting a fire before they left to look for another target…

The most immoral of them all was undoubtedly the gang consisting of more than a dozen mages.

This bunch of fellows turned around the city but couldn't find a place to start, so they went out of Jarrosus City, straight to the Mariana Ca.n.a.l. When they saw the Merlin Family's merchant s.h.i.+p in the middle of the ca.n.a.l, their eyes flashed like a hungry beast's seeing its prey.

Each of them downed a bottle of Sobriety Potion and a wave of spell recitation resounded.

Before people on the merchant s.h.i.+p could react, a monstrous blaze rose to the skies. That dozen of mages joined hands to unleash a level-eight Flaming Storm. To the people from the Merlin Family, it was like the end of the world. Countless fire dragons raged and roared, and the blazing flames devoured the huge merchant s.h.i.+p in a single instant.

The people on board were lucky enough to escape with a few small sampans. But the goods that were worth millions of gold coins on the merchant s.h.i.+p were burned to ashes by the fire…
