The cavemen were extremely weak, but the sudden collapse of the cavern was Arreck’s true problem. Without anyone noticing, a massive crack appeared in the sheet of ice overhead, and the roof caved in with a thunderous rumble. Numerous soldiers were crushed by the falling chunks of ice.
The mages around Arreck conjured a green protective barrier around them. Several tons of ice pressed down against the barrier, causing the shield to crack. The ghastly faces of the mages turned even paler than usual. Fortunately for them, Shitaht had no desire to completely wreck his home, or else they would have been buried by the snowfall. Shitaht weaved through the erratic ice formations with ease. Frost dragons could easily blend in with their icy recesses, an innate ability passed down by their ancestors. As long as they were in snowy regions, it was nearly impossible for humans to detect them.
He stalked silently towards Arreck, fully intending on ripping the duke to shreds. At that moment, two Black Knights turned around, red eyes flashing as they saw Shitaht.
“Who’s there!” Both Black Knights shouted in unison.
Startled, Shitaht lunged forward, ramming into the pair with his wings. Their armor plates caved inwards from the pressure as the knights were sent flying into a wall. Shitaht grabbed both knights before scurrying away into hiding once more. Due to the rain of giant ice chunks, no one noticed the two Black Knights being taken out.
Arreck’s mages expended a lot of energy to halt the collapse of the cavern, and they began working on clearing a path immediately after. The former duke scanned his troops, realizing that he had lost at least three hundred men,as well as some of the Dead Knights. His heart sank as the realization sunk in.
“Ptui!” Devard spat out a mouthful of snow. He walked towards Arreck, cautiously eyeing the walls as he did. Despite possessing superhuman strength and Elemental Powers, he knew that he would be powerless to prevent his fate should the walls of ice decide to swallow them.
“This must be the work of those cavemen.” The female knight beside Arreck gritted her teeth. Sylvia’s face had been sliced by an icicle when protecting her lord. Blood ran down her face, giving her a terrifying visage.
Devard nodded. Everyone had not considered if the true masters of that place had never left at all. They had undeniably felt the dragon’s mighty pressure even though they were miles away. No one else could imitate that brand of aura .
“At least they’ve retreated.” Devard’s voice was full of uncertainty.
Arreck turned to look at the newly-formed tunnel. The cavemen were nowhere to be seen. It was normal for dragons to command a band of underlings, just like Black Dragons and gnomes. Red Dragons and Kobolds(狗头人) could often be found together, Silver Dragons often accepted the servitude of elves, and Gold Dragons preferred the company of faeries. Thus, it was not
