Nuclear Dragon - Chapter 86
The soul fire filled the entire skull head, then the other surrounding bones quickly spliced together with the head as the center.
”Click, click, click~”
Not long after, a creature that looked like a skeleton soldier straightened up. Its body flashed with purple and black light, and a cloak suddenly appeared on its body.
He bowed slightly to the lich ahead, then along with a purple and black light flash, he disappeared without a trace.
The gloomy underground space regained its calmness.
Only the sound of pages turning occasionally sounded…
In Star City.
Shillong and others have already returned to the city, but they were a little idle.
The only group of people that kept their excitement were Shillong and Arman. The two dragons began to wander around and watch movies made by other chambers of commerce.
Generally speaking, there are relatively few actions and adventure movies. Most of them were emotional dramas.
Maybe it’s because fighting scenes require masters and hiring them requires too much money.
Anyway, Shillong and Arman lost their interest after watching a few movies.
Afterward, Shillong stayed home for just two days before getting too bored and deciding to do something.
He decided to learn swordsmanship!
If he had superior swordsmanship before, coupled with a wealth of combat experience with the human body, then he wouldn’t have needed to use his true body and expose his information.
With the power of his Dragonborn body, plus magic spells, and his innate gravity talent, he can definitely defeat the previous leader of the black blood beast believers! That level 18 warrior!
So Shillong decided to learn combat techniques. He directly asked Andre about the best place to study swordsmanship in the city, and he was ready to set off.
Before setting off, the boy Arman insisted on following him.
After the previous attack, he always felt unsafe if he wasn’t near Shillong!
The place where the two dragons are headed is in the center of the outer city.
Its name is [Sword General] Swordsmanship Academy.
They hope that every student can become a general-level swordsman after graduating.
The academy is still very large. After all, it is one of the best academies in the kingdom. The students are divided into three groups: star group, lunar group, and solar group.
The three sub-groups have talents from all three classes.
The Star Group is the place for the academy-sponsored civilian geniuses.
The Lunar group is mostly composed of small nobility and big merchants.
The solar group is mostly composed of the children of great aristocrats and super-wealthy people.
The three groups are not absolute, as many people have jumped between them in the past.
If you ask which group is the best?
That’s hard to say but the top group of the academy generally comes from the star and solar groups.
One side is the geniuses that stand out from millions of ordinary people.
The other side is the geniuses that are backed by great families and amazing wealth and resources.
It’s hard to say which one is better amongst the two groups of geniuses.
After all, the civilian geniuses, after proving that they are good enough, there won’t be a lack of powers that want to invest in them and provide them with enough resources.
Shillong didn’t plan to study for a long time in this academy. He just came to study for two months, so he could only join the temporary class.
He first paid the registration fee for one person, three gold coins per month, then someone took Shillong and Arman to the practice place.
It was a very empty classroom with a sword practice field.
There were dozens of students practicing in pairs.
An instructor patrolled on the side.
When he saw Shillong, Arman, and the guide who walked in, he walked straight over.
This instructor looks very strong. He has a fitness coach-level figure, and his height is more than 1.9 meters.
He was holding an ironwood two-handed sword in his hand.
This is the person that Shillong chose.
After choosing to practice swordsmanship, the academy gave him three choices, one is the rapier, the other is the ordinary one-handed sword, and the two-handed sword.
Shillong’s strength far exceeds that of human beings, so he naturally chose the two-handed giant sword.
After he walked over, the guide briefly explained the situation and left.
The instructor looked at Shillong and Arman up and down for a while and said,
“You two are sure to learn the use of the two-handed sword? Actually, I think this sword may not be suitable for you. Looking at the two of you, one is a Dragonborn. Although the power of Dragonborns is inherently bigger than that of humans, you are too small and your body is not fully mature.”
”The other is an elf? The power of elves is weaker than that of humans. I think it would be more appropriate for you to choose the rapier.
Look at the ironwood sword in my hand. The sword is 1.5 meters long, 10 cm wide, 2 cm thick, and weighs about 14 kilos. Are you sure you can swing this sword easily? You must know that a true two-handed sword is much heavier than this!”
The coach kindly reminded.
“Let’s give it a try,”
Shillong said. He wanted to hold the coach’s sword, but Arman took the lead. He quickly took the coach’s sword and began to play with it.
He held the sword with one hand, swiped left and right, about 30 or 40 times, then held it with both hands and casually swung it for 70 or 80 times before putting it down.
“Oh~ it’s really heavy. I can’t casually use it with one hand! I must use both hands! My strength has regressed so much…”
Arman lamented the decay of his power after becoming an elf.
But in the ears of the coach, that wasn’t the case!
To wave such a large two-handed sword so casually, his strength is more than qualified. Only a fraction of the students present can reach Arman’s level. Is he retaliating against him?
He must be retaliating for the initial contempt!
The coach’s face was a bit ugly.
He looked at Shillong with a dark face, and motioned for him to go up and try.
Shillong nodded casually and took the Iron Wood Sword, which was much heavier than the ordinary longsword on his waist, but it still felt light in his hand.
He felt like he held a small twig. It was so light!
He waved it dozens of times and didn’t feel tired at all.
“Okay! Stop it! Your strength is beyond doubt! You are indeed qualified to practice greatswords!”
The coach shouted to stop Shillong from continuing,
“However, although your strength is very good, the profound meaning of swordsmanship is not only strength but also skills! Since you came here to learn, then it’s obvious that you lack skills!”
”Compete with the students here to see the gap between yourself and others! This will help you improve, this elf student! It’s up to you to come first!”
“Don’t call me elf student,”
Arman took Shillong’s greatsword,
“Call me Arman, Arman, this is my name, the one next to me is my brother, Shillong.”
“Okay! So student Arman, please go to the practice field first, I will arrange your opponent for you.”
The coach walked to the practice field after finishing.
Arman and Shillong quickly followed behind.
When he came to the middle of the practice field, the coach clapped his hands and said,
“Okay! Everyone, stop! Today, we welcome two new students. Now, Peter! Come up and compete with them! Let them see your strength!”
When the trainees heard the coach’s words, they immediately stopped and looked at the three people in the middle.
Out of the trainees walked out a particularly strong man with short golden hair and a square face.
He is Peter, the student the coach called, also the strongest of this batch of temporary students.
These temporary students all failed the entrance examination, but they wanted to study in the ‘general swordsmanship academy’.
Most of them are younglings who are not yet of proper age, Peter is the oldest.
Because of his age advantage, Peter is temporarily ranked first in this temporary class.
He is now a level 6 fighter.
A warrior of this level can be called a little expert in the outside world, but at the genius-filled General Swordsmanship Academy, he is not even qualified for admission.
He has been studying here temporarily for more than a year.
His strength has changed from the original 5th level to the current 6th level.
