Zhou Zhou was stunned, he walked out of the Lord's wooden house and came to the protective barrier. Bao Xiu'er was there too.
"Greetings, my Lord!" Bao Xiu'er smiled. Then, she took a closer look at Zhou Zhou's clothes and realized that there was no damage. She could not help but look away regretfully.
Zhou Zhou: "…"
He ignored her and looked at the fog monsters outside the Protective Barrier.
They were still the Desert Fog Lizards. However, there were more Desert Fog Lizards this time, about 70 to 80 of them, baring their fangs at Zhou Zhou and the others in the territory, hitting the protective barrier from time to time.
"It's not night time yet. Why are there suddenly so many Desert Mist Lizards?"
Zhou Zhou did not panic since he had the novice Lord's protection barrier. He was just a little puzzled.
"These fog monsters seem to have hatred in their eyes. They must have come here specifically. Has my Lord's soldiers killed many of their kind recently?" A familiar voice suddenly came from behind Zhou Zhou, then came to the spot slightly behind him.
It was the Ashburn Hall, the owner of the alchemy workshop!
"You mean they're here to avenge their companions?" Zhou Zhou asked.
"I'm afraid that's not all. My Lord has probably provoked the Scarlet Lord behind this group of Desert Fog Lizards." Ashburn said.
"Scarlet Lord? What's that?" Zhou Zhou was stunned.
"My Lord, did you realize that you encountered very few types of fog monsters when you killed these fog monsters recently?" Ashburn asked instead of replying.
Zhou Zhou nodded.
In fact, he had encountered only one type — the Desert Fog Lizard!
Zhou Zhou almost thought that this was a world ruled by the Desert Fog Lizards if not because he saw the other Lords chatting about encountering other types of monsters on the world channel.
"It's normal. In the Higher Continent, most of the Fog Monsters use their race as the basis and designate an area as their living area. Then, they gather together to live."
"Other than being bloodthristy, they are also extremely xenophobic. Therefore, there are almost no other monster species in their living area. That's why His Lordship has only encountered one type of monster, the Desert Fog Lizard as my Lord's exploration range has yet to leave the territory of the Desert Fog Lizard." Zhou Zhou came to a realization.
Ashburn went on "And when monsters gather together, it's very easy to give birth to a 'Leader' amongst them. A leader-level monster will be favored by the Scarlet Lord and given powerful strength and authority similar to that of a Lord!"
"Such Lords are the Scarlet Lords! And the so-called Scarlet Lords are supreme existences comparable to the Supreme Will! These two supreme existences have been fighting against each other on the High Continent for tens of thousands of years. In general, the Supreme Will is at a slight disadvantage. The arrival of the Myriad Realm Lords would probably become a turning point to the current situation of the High Continent." Zhou Zhou nodded and didn't think too much about it.
The matter between these two was too far away from him, a Black Iron-Tier Advance Grade.
He pondered for a moment before he handed the 500 Blood Origin Flowers and the other materials he had just traded to Ashburn.
"Make these materials into potions and mechanostriders as soon as you can. I have a use for them. And get your mechanostrider out." Zhou Zhou said.
"Yes, my Lord!" Ashburn said respectfully and turned to leave.
"My Lord, what should we do now?" Bao Xiu'er asked.
"We wait." Zhou Zhou only said two words. Everyone stopped asking.
Half an hour later, Bai Yi and the others appeared in the distance. It was only then that they discovered the Desert Fog Lizard monsters surrounding the territory. Bai Yi and the others were stunned before they raged immediately.
The home they had worked so hard to protect had actually been invaded?!
"Kill!" Bai Yi roared. The 217 soldiers behind her roared and rushed over, kicking up sand and dust as they ran!
Lu Chong, who had just joined the team, rushed to the front and was the first to collide with them. With just a few moves, he sent a Desert Fog Lizard that weighed more than 200 kilograms flying. The other Sword Shield Soldiers followed closely behind and joined the battle.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The sound of swords and shields colliding rang out.
Bai Yi drew her bow in the distance!
Arrows shot out one after another, whistling in the wind.
She was already a Black Iron-Tier Advance Grade Archer. She could kill a Black Iron-Tier Elementary Grade Desert Fog Lizard with one arrow and Black Iron-Tier Intermediate Grade Desert Fog Lizards could also be killed with three arrows!
lightsnοvεlAt that moment, their rage actually suppressed this group of Desert Fog Lizards.
"The Lord's soldiers are still idealistic. However, this newborn calf's fearless spirit is very rare." Ashburn clicked his tongue in wonder within the protective barrier.
Zhou Zhou's expression was calm. "Their courage is commendable. They just got a little carried away, not even using their greatest advantage.Everyone! Enter the protective barrier immediately while fighting the fog monsters!" Towards the end, he roared immediately.
His voice contained some mental strength and quickly woke up the furious soldiers.
Bai Yi was the first to react. She immediately led the crowd to retreat into the protective barrier as they fought.
"My Lord! Your subject is guilty! We didn't completely clear out the fog monsters around the territory. We actually let them approach the protective barrier and put our Lord in danger!" Bai Yi knelt in front of Zhou Zhou with an ashamed expression and did not even dare to look up at him.
"This is not your fault. Come here. I have something to tell you." Zhou Zhou said. Bai Yi was stunned. Then, she obeyed and came to Zhou Zhou's side.
Zhou Zhou whispered something into her ear. "Do you understand?"
"Understood, my Lord! I will definitely complete the mission!" Bai Yi said firmly.
"Get to know each other. Zhang Cang and the others are protected. There won't be any danger." Zhou Zhou said.
Bai Yi nodded and walked to the back.
The battle continued, facing 70 to 80 Desert Fog Lizards was not something that the 200-odd soldiers on Zhou Zhou's side could handle swiftly even if they were within the protective barrier.
Zhou Zhou was not in a hurry. His gaze swept across these Desert Fog Lizards.
Soon, his eyes lit up and his gaze landed on the only elite Desert Fog Lizard in the group.

"The second building effect of the gnome alchemy workshop is finally working…" A smile appeared on Zhou Zhou's face.
