As the efficiency of the tribe and the minions grew, the Forest began to feel threatened by their existence. At first, they didn't pose much threat because their weapons were not that impressive, coupled with their limited numbers and shabby strategies. However, the arrival of the army and the creation of Genesis began to give them dangerous ideas.The first raid was to test the waters, see how dangerous they were and how much firepower they could pack. After getting a good idea about how to proceed, the Forest prepared their execution with more numbers and taking out their weakest link first: Genesis. But the development that they had in just three days was too much for it to process.
The fight raged for what seemed like an eternity. David thanked that he was in a virtual space, or he would have lost his throat at this point. Numerous corpses piled up just to be burned with fire magic before the ghosts could take them and add more chaos. The numbers consistently dropped from his combatants, with a sigh, he decided it was enough."Scouts, request back-up from the tribe."The scouts silently agreed and made their way back to the tribe, avoiding as much combat as they could. David nodded and returned his attention to the bat
The [drunk] state lasted for 4 hours before changing to [hangover], halving their max stats for ten more hours before vanishing. David didn't mind it too much and let the dozen affected soldiers rest properly before the big fight that followed soon after.[Incursion in progress!][Your town "Genesis" is under attack!]
The researchers spent 3 hours trying to make heads and tails of the drawings that David drew on the ground. David guided them to accelerate the process, but he couldn't help with most of it. He could possess them in turns, but that would deplete their energy before getting anything done.When the blueprints were finished and more finely painted on a patch of leather, the architects began their job. The squirrels, rats, and the apes that broke out of their cocoon began to carve the bloodwood. But David stopped the apes from doing it. Their low crafting levels made the products too crude to function, and instead, he made them go with the other crafters to grind.Another welcomed addition was a new magical device that the tribe invente
David returned his attention to Genesis when the army safely returned to their home. Almost all of them immediately went for the kitchen searching for, but it wasn't ready yet. David looked over the kitchen and saw the cooks frantically trying to keep up with the demand for soup and meat."Keep it up, boys, I don't know why did you take so long to start but next time, try to be ready."The cooks nodded and continued their work. David smiled and shook his head before redirecting his attention to the army's stats. After a while, he nodded."Earl, search for the tribe, we need to make a deal."The banshee nodded and entered the skull tribe with haste. While Earl was in his little mission, David looked over the architects."First thing on the To-do list. Possession, Architect 1."[Warning! Unit "Architect 1" is 8 levels below the recommended threshold for the ability. The time until complete exhaustion is reduced.][00:02:12]-It's enough-Thought David, while stretching the body of Archit
While David was having the battle of his life, back in Genesis, things quieted down. After the rescue team left, the usual noises from the minions disappeared from the town. In this quietness, Cook 1, a squirrel of the first generation of the army cooks, was bored in the kitchen.His job was to purify swamp water using a high reactive aquamarine before making soup. When there were no supplies, he had to skin the carcasses and peel the vegetables with his other 11 colleagues. It was a grueling task, but one that he gladly did, as it was a command by the great voice.He saw a grey fire materializing in front of the kitchen, but he remained calm. Cook 8 pulled a rope inside the building, and a sound similar to a bell resounded. Just be
The enemy wolves were 28 without counting the boss, while David had 50 at his disposal. However, even if he almost doubled them, he knew he had a tough fight ahead. His team consisted of 20 Plated rhinos, 10 Blood rats, 10 Bone squirrels, 5 Tunneling worms, 4 Soldier ants, and Skeletor. He favored agility and stealth for the ambush, instead of going with more bulky fighters like the beetles or the snails. Also, he didn't bring any golems to the fight, as more numbers would most likely get them caught. The rewards were very tempting, but David wasn't so sure of winning the fight, so he immediately set forth reinforcements from Genesis. At least to minimize the losses he would suffer.The first wolf arrived near the Rhinos with an armor made out of stone covering its body, thorny vines came from the roof and the ground and held it as the rhinoceros charged ahead. Similar scenarios played out on both fronts, resulting in the death of 3 wolves. The Ice wolf howled again and stomped its fe
While David was distracted with the other minions, Dorime began to splash ink in the wall using the onyx. He shaped it using his little hands and used his flying golem for the unreachable places. He painted a humanoid striking a T-pose in the center of the wall, with lines near its body, as if they represented that it was glowing. Near, he made the crude shapes of various of his new and older brothers: Skeletor was a small horned humanoid, lumps represented the rats and squirrels, some tunneling worms, vultures, beetles, and even some ants.After a while, h
Even with the deaths of his units, David's mood was still positive. He managed to get his hands of the ants, and all that remained was to begin the extraction of copper. He started by summoning the Worker ants near the Gigabeetles. Five black ants of the size of a dog appeared, they twitched their antennae and clapped their mandibles."We must follow the tradition. You'll
