Chapter 1146 – Picking An Old Combo Up Again
Chapter 1146: Picking an old combo up again
The status of illegitimate children of sorcerers in the kingdom was extremely low. One of the most important reasons for this was that the sorcerers had many wives and children, so there was no reason to cherish those born out of wedlock too much.
After all, if someone only had one child, they might still cherish an illegitimate child who suddenly came forward to be acknowledged.
But if they had 200 children, that would already be extremely annoying by itself, so why would they bother cherishing the illegitimate ones? It would even be quite normal to use them as servants.
The Bloodline Summoning spell was an exclusive spell of the Tudor family, but it turned out to be extremely useful for the family’s illegitimate children. At the very least, it was extremely useful for transmitting intel.
As the Tudor family’s head of intelligence gathering in the Winston family’s territory, how could he pass on the opportunity to get reinstated to the clan?
Although he would still remain a bounty hunter after he returned to the family, he could obtain the meditative visualization diagrams of high-level spells once he did. This was extremely important to every sorcerer.
The reason the Tudor family wanted to kill Melgor so badly was because his childhood sweetheart secretly sending him money through a servant had been brought to light.
When the Tudor family found out about it, they could not do anything to the girl so as not to taint the clan’s honor. But after executing the servant, they sent Melgor away to Fortress 178.
Initially, the members of the Tudor family thought a novice sorcerer like Melgor would definitely die at Fortress 178. However, Melgor managed to pull through and even returned to York County safely.
Meanwhile, the middle-aged man said that people in Ghent City had started paying attention to this matter, so the young man realized that news of their House of Tudor trying to kill a junior sorcerer had spread among the magi.

The Tudor family had already taken action thrice and even sent out the Knights of Tudor to kill Melgor. But even so, they were unsuccessful in their objective. This was a great humiliation to the Tudor family.
Therefore, Melgor had to die no matter what. If Melgor were allowed to even step foot into Ghent City, the Tudor family would be made a mockery by all the sorcerer clans.
The other families might only dare to mock them in private, but the Norman family would definitely harp on it to no end in public.
The Tudors could even imagine the nasty words the Normans would say.
When the city gate opened in the morning, the young man left Winston City with his servants. At this moment, the young man no longer cared if the Winston family would discover his suspicious identity. As long as he killed Melgor, he could take a detour back to Ghent City and cut all ties with the Winston family.
After the knights left the city, they first proceeded to a manor 30 kilometers away to join up with the Knights of Tudor who were lying low there. They would arm themselves here with superior armaments before heading south to intercept the trade caravan that was en route to the north.
At this moment, Ren Xiaosu was leaning lazily against a carriage. While the sheeple were not around, he whispered to Melgor, “Let me remind you that the Tudor family must be enraged now, so their subsequent encirclements will definitely get more intense than before.”
Melgor was surprised. “Just so they can kill me? Is there a need to get that heavy-handed? But they’ve already sent out their knights. Surely there’s no need to make a bigger scene than that, right?”
“Of course there is.” Ren Xiaosu thought to himself, ‘
You don’t know what I’ve done. If you were aware, you’d probably run away immediately.
Melgor pondered it for a moment before suddenly saying, “That can’t be. I keep getting the feeling that they’re not only here to kill me. Just what have you done?”
“Huh?” Ren Xiaosu said, “What’s it got to do with me? You were the one flirting with the Tudor family’s daughter-in-law.”
“Wait.” Melgor said suspiciously, “When you asked me the other day if there was anyone in the entire Kingdom of Sorcerers who everyone knows, something must have happened. That’s why you suddenly asked me that. Besides, the way you looked at the portrait of the Tudor family’s head was weird!”
Ren Xiaosu felt a sense of respect for Melgor. “When did you become so perceptive?!”
Melgor did not know whether to laugh or cry. “What on earth have you done?”
“Oh.” Ren Xiaosu thought it’d be good to let Melgor know what he should be expecting since he managed to link the clues together. He explained, “Have you ever heard of a spell that can summon people to the caster’s side with just blood?”
Although Melgor was a junior sorcerer, he was still quite diligent in his studies. He said, “This is the Tudor family’s Bloodline Summoning spell. It’s also one of the spells that made their family famous.”
“Mhm.” Ren Xiaosu nodded. “I killed a junior sorcerer, but after he died, his blood formed a magic circle and summoned an old man….”
Melgor was shocked. “Are you trying to tell me the old man looked a little like the portrait on the gold coin?”
“Mhm, you’re so smart.” Ren Xiaosu said, “They do indeed look a little similar, but I don’t think the portrait on the gold coin fully expresses his enthusiasm….”
“Enthusiasm? My ass!” Melgor was nearly scared out of his wits. “Let’s go, we have to leave right away. I know you must definitely be someone of high status at Fortress 178. I’ll go there with you….”
Ren Xiaosu stopped Melgor, who was about to jump out of the carriage, and reassured him, “Don’t worry. I’m here!”
Melgor was on the verge of tears. He whisper-roared, “That’s the fucking head of the Tudor family! He’s an archmage who’s been famous for 40 years!”
“Don’t worry, even if he’s an archmage, didn’t I still easily poke his nostrils with a branch?” Ren Xiaosu said nonchalantly, “Besides, don’t we have Qian Weining and his men?”
“What are a few hundred knights compared to the head of the Tudor family?” Melgor wanted to cry. “Let’s just run.”
“Why do we have to run?” Ren Xiaosu said in a serious tone, “I’ll tell it to you straight then. When I get to Ghent City, the first thing on my list is to flatten the Tu-Manor. Don’t worry, if you get a chance to visit Fortress 178 in the future, you’ll know why I’m so confident.”
“What the hell is a tumanor…” Melgor said helplessly.
“By the way, let me ask you, is there any spell that can create an explosion from afar?” Ren Xiaosu asked curiously.
Melgor said in a state of shock, “Yes, there’s a lot of such spells like the Norman family’s Boiling Airburst and the Winston family’s Lightning Strike.”
Ren Xiaosu’s interest was piqued. “Tell me about this Boiling Airburst spell.”
“What’s there to say about it? It just causes an extremely powerful explosion from several hundred meters away. It destabilizes the world elements in the target area to achieve that.” Melgor said, “But this is a very high-level spell, and it’s a spell exclusive to the Norman family of Ghent City. No one outside their clan knows it.”
“You’ve mastered it now,” Ren Xiaosu said in seriousness.
“What?” Melgor was stunned.
“Let me ask you, do you think we worked well together yesterday?” Ren Xiaosu asked.
“Yes, of course!” Melgor thought there was no need to deny it.
“Mhm, if you encounter any more enemies, just pretend to recite an incantation and leave the rest to me,” Ren Xiaosu said.
“But I don’t know the incantation, nor do I have the meditative visualization diagram for the spell,” Melgor said.
Ren Xiaosu said meaningfully, “No one knows that you don’t.”
He took a look at the thousands of grenades in his storage space and felt that the efficiency of last night’s attack was terrible. Therefore, he thought it was necessary to pick his unique combo of Shadow Door and grenades up again.
