Chronicles of Primordial Wars

Chapter 192 - The traps in the forest

Translated by Lesyt Team
Edited by Ilesyt


In the early morning, Shao Xuan woke up and sat on the tall stone pillar. He yawned, stretched and looked around.

At the first glance, he found everything was the same as yesterday. But when he observed, he saw the “lines” running from the bushes to six different directions.

Going down from the pillar, he ate the carnivore bird’s egg which the Lu tribe had given him.

After having fed itself in the early morning, Chacha didn’t sense any potential danger in the surrounding area while flying.

The old flame pit was different now and was covered by layers of mud and stones. Shao Xuan had intended to uncover it but he thought that the flame had nothing to do with whether the flame pit was covered.

Let it be.

Shao Xuan recalled the vision he had seen last night and walked along the flame pit.

It changed a lot. If he hadn’t seen the vision last night, he couldn’t have imagined where the original buildings stood in this place.

He was looking to uncover some special items, but after walking around he found nothing. Maybe something was buried under the ground. Maybe these things had already been ruined. Maybe they had been taken away by the members of the Flaming Horns tribe.

Shao Xuan had planned to look for them carefully and suddenly he heard an eagle scream.

He stopped and put aside a broken pottery jar which he had just found. He entered the forest in the direction of Chacha’s scream.

In the early morning, the Wan Shi tribe sent over one hundred people into the forest to search for people of other tribes. They were divided into five groups. The shaman and the chief had ordered them to kill whoever they met as long as they weren’t members of their tribe.

If they could bring back their heads, the shaman and the chief would reward them.

Even though the shaman and the chief didn’t tell them who was in the forest and how many people there were, they were motivated to finish the task to get the rewards.

Those who had just taken part in the tribe war weren’t sent to search for the people in the forest. The shaman and the chief had discussed about it and finally decided to send more than one hundred people to carry out a search and get some information.

The rest stayed in the tribe and with envy looked at those walking towards the Ferocious Beasts Mountain Forest. This shouldn’t be a dangerous task, because so many people went there together with the Wan Shi beasts.

Those who would enter the forest set out with the Wan Shi beasts cheerfully while the rest looked at them with envy.

Not many cows, goats or horses were raised in the Wan Shi tribe. For one thing, they showed no interest. For another, more importantly, they focused on raising Wan Shi beasts.

The so-called Wan Shi beast hadn’t existed originally. It was bred by this tribe selectively. It was a new breed of the offspring of some wildlife and ferocious beasts, so they were stronger than the other beasts. Due to the mutant genes, every new generation of this kind of Wan Shi beast was different from the former generation. In order to remember this kind of Wan Shi beast and make them known for it, they named it Wan Shi beast.

The Wan Shi beast was bred selectively, so over the previous hundreds of years some genes could be passed on. They needed some powerful beasts and this came as their first standard. Therefore, some abnormal species and even some with many flaws were selected and preserved. But those weak species with dominant genes were abandoned and cooked for food.

These Wan Shi beasts were bigger than hounds trained by the other tribes and looked different. Some looked like dogs while others looked like cats. Their patterns were various, but they had one thing in common. That was their eyes looked cruel as if they would rush to bite anyone they caught.

When this tribe launched war against the other tribes, the members of this tribe often sent the Wan Shi beasts to chase those enemies who posed threat to them and had to be killed.

These Wan Shi beasts were tied by some strong and thick straw ropes, which had been specially made and soaked in special liquid. Only the strong totem warriors in this tribe could pull and control them and they also had to prevent them from biting the ropes.

Over one hundred people divided into five groups entered in the forest. Each group went with three or four Wan Shi beasts and wouldn’t stay too close or too far from each other. If one group met something unusual, its member could whistle so the other groups would hurry over to help them.

When they left the tribe they were excited by what the shaman and the chief said, But they were still anxious when stepping into the forest.

All kept silent and only the Wan Shi beasts roared in a deep voice from time to time. They didn’t find anything unusual or any trace left by men. They had thought that after entering the forest with the Wan Shi beasts, they could find the targets, but in fact, after walking for a long time, they still found nothing except several ferocious beasts.

Shao Xuan got used to hunting in the forest so he had learned how to manage to not to reveal his trace and presence. There were so many ferocious beasts that were good at tracing, but he wasn’t found by them. That was why he wasn’t be found by the Wan Shi beasts.

All the group members who had set out in the early morning felt tired at noon. They didn’t find anyone, but were attacked by some plants and animals. They couldn’t hide themselves, for there were more than twenty warriors in each group with Wan Shi beasts. Not to mention, they were not good at hiding themselves.

“Why can’t we find anyone?” A warrior said while resting.

“I really hope that I can take the head back to get the reward sooner. ” Another warrior said in an optimistic tone.

“It depends on whether you can act quickly enough. I won’t give the prey to you. ”

“Maybe there isn’t only one man here. Several men, maybe. Even if there is only one man, we can cut him into pieces.” Some cut in.

“Yes, you are right. It all depends on your ability.”

When they were talking about it, a warrior suddenly said, “Hey, what’s that?”

The warrior stood up and went next to a big stone. When they normally saw such a stone they would have ignored it. But now, this stone seemed to be an unusual one.

They only saw one side of this big stone from their original location, but when they changed their position, they found the scratches on the other side of the uncovered stone.

“Who did that?” That warrior asked.

The others shook their heads.

The scratches on the moss of the stone were newly left. If they weren’t left by the warriors of their tribe, it showed someone else had been here.

Not just that warrior thought so, the others had a similar thought.

“Someone has been here.”

“That’s great. ”

“Well, what is Flaming Horns?” The warrior saw the words on the stone and asked.

“It is said that here was a big tribe here, but it disappeared long ago. Perhaps the tribe was called Flaming Horns. ”

“Possibly.”

When talking about this, everyone became very excited.

A big tribe. Although they didn’t know what a big tribe was like thousands of years ago, every tribe had precious things, like the tribes in the central region. Perhaps some gems, jade and even fire crystals were preserved.

Thinking about this, everyone in the group became excited. They knew it was dangerous for them to stay in the forest where many ferocious beasts lived. But there were many warriors in this group, so if they were careful enough, they would be safe.

“Those who entered and hid in the forest might be looking for the precious things of  this big tribe.” A warrior said.

“We can’t let the others take those things away ahead of us. Hurry up. ”

Before the leader said anything more, the other members hurriedly set out again. The tribe wars had brought them a lot of benefits, so when they found the remains of such a big tribe, they immediately wondered whether they could get something precious.

Yan Jiu had said those in the Wan Shi tribe were very greedy and their greed often overwhelmed their reason. That was why they would do so many crazy things.

In recent years, the slave owners had come to the central region more and more frequently. They especially enjoyed traveling to the places where the Wan Shi tribe had been.

Before they left, a warrior of this tribe took off his hide pants and intended to piss against the stone engraved with “Flaming Horns”. Such a stone with the name of the tribe or totem pattern was not just some border stone for a tribe. In the eyes of those in the tribe, it was important, like the rock paintings in the Mang tribe. If anyone pissed against the stone paintings, the members of the Mang tribe must attack him fiercely, because according to the tribal rules, that was a provocation.

However, Flaming Horns tribe had disappeared for nearly a thousand years so those in the Wan Shi tribe had nothing to fear. Even if anyone came to attack them, they could kill them directly. Someone had tried cutting the stone with a blade, but the stone was quite hard, so it wasn’t broken. They planned to carry the stone away and change it into tools.

This group of warriors continued to move forward and searched for the men and things they wanted. After several steps, the leader found something wrong and turned back to look at the man who was maintaining the same posture next to the big stone.

Why isn’t he pissing?

“Done?” The leader asked.

No one replied.

The other warriors complained. We also want to piss against the stone, but we have to hurry up.  Why are you standing there?  What’s wrong with you?  If we delay, the others may get the rewards.

Someone was about to say something more, but he was stopped by the leader.

As the leader of this group, he was quite alert, since he found something wrong, he went there with vigilance and took out the stone knife to poke the warrior standing there.

The warrior originally standing there fell down silently.

Everyone was worried and wondered when he was attacked, and why their Wan Shi beasts didn’t notice.

Something was rustling.

The slight noise came from the surrounding bush and the noise was so low that no one could hear it if they were not careful enough.

Three of their Wan Shi beasts had good hearing, so they got mad at once, roared and rushed there. The warriors who pulled the Wan Shi beasts loosened the rope to let them go.

The leader glanced at the others to tell them to be careful and then led them to follow the Wan Shi beasts.

Louder sounds were heard in the bush as if someone had just left here swiftly. Within a second, he had run far away from them.

“Go ahead.”

“Ouch.”

A warrior’s foot was caught and he shouted in a soft voice. Soon he was silent and his body was pierced by a needle.

Then three other warriors were tied and hung up one by one. Their lives were also ended by a needle.

At this moment, the rest of them became scared. They looked at the bushy trees with fear. There were more and more trees and weeds in the surrounding area, so they couldn’t see clearly and they just depended on their hearing. They really wondered how many people were hiding near them.

One warrior cursed and then he suddenly felt a great pain in his ankle. He thought he would be hung like the other warriors but it turned out that he was dragged aside very quickly.

One more warrior was pulled away and became silent.

The warrior staying in the original place didn’t follow them but held a weapon to chase the Wan Shi beasts slowly and alertly.

The leader waved his sword to cut the pile of weeds but he didn’t find anything strange. Then he spat and cursed silently.

Before they even saw the enemies of the other tribes, they fell into the traps again and again. But they still failed to find the end of the traps.

Within a second, four more warriors died.

They felt upset and they became irritated by this situation. Not to mention, they had a bad temper.

When they launched a tribe war, they had never faced such a situation. At that time, they had played to their strengths and had been able to cut their enemies with their swords.

But this way didn’t work here.

They didn’t get used to this new way of fighting.

Moreover, in this forest they were worried that ferocious beasts or threats would appear suddenly. They had to be careful about the paths under their feet.

Their Wan Shi beasts ran far away from them, so they couldn’t order them to come back.

It seemed that someone had managed to make the Wan Shi beasts run away and then hid here to fight against them, the leader thought.

“Do I need to whistle?” A warrior asked the leader.

“No.” They just came here only a while ago. So if they asked for help he felt he would lose face and prestige. The leader’s eyes were filled with distress.

Rustle.

Another warrior was tied on the neck and was pulled over. He just opened his mouth but failed to make any voice. He wanted to shout but he was tied so tightly that his face twisted.

Puff.

A wood needle pierced his neck, he was poisoned and fell unconscious and no longer struggled.

The leader and the others looked up to the sky.

A silk thread.

Such silk threads…belonged to the Eight Limbs tribe.

It shouldn’t be. The Eight Limbs tribe was a little far from here. And this tribe didn’t get involved in a war. The Wan Shi tribe could defeat several small tribes, but if a big tribe fought in a war, more powerful tribes would be involved in it.

The Eight Limbs tribe didn’t want to get anything from this forest.

The more they thought about it, the more they got confused. So the leader no longer thought about it and decided to just find those hiding here and kill them.
