Abe The Wizard Chapter 732 | the-mass-of-eating-melon-seeds
“Griffin knights, Follow me. Take your griffins. Bartoli, come along as well. We’ll go take a walk around Harry Castle!” Abel looked at the 4 griffin knights, satisfied after they had signed their contract.
The 4 griffin knights let out a screech and speed out the door. 4 griffins were already waiting outside.
The duchy of Carmel’s teleportation circle was located on the palace door’s side. 2 official knights were guarding it. Their task was not to protect the teleportation circle. Their power was like nothing compared to those wizards who used the teleportation circle even though they were official knights.
Their task was charging the fee for teleportation. Normally this task would be controlled by a tower spirit, but this place’s guardian spirit must be kept a secret. Therefore they could do it manually.
After they had been accepted as a part of the wizard union web of teleportation, the palace’s teleportation circle would need to be responsible for some daily teleportation, like people who layover at the duchy of Carmel.
Since this teleportation circle was not located in a magic tower, it was one of those rare ones that normal people could use. Therefore, despite it being located in the far south of the Holy Continent, it was still in operation quite often.
“Your Majesty!” the 2 knights suddenly saw Abel appear. They quickly bowed.
“Well done!” Abel nodded with a smile.
Abel really meant it. The cost of each teleportation was 10,000 gold coins, and this teleportation circle drew its energy from an energy storage room underground, which was lavishly equipped with gems.
Gems were worthless to Abel, so all the profit derived from each teleportation could go straight into his palace expenses.
Excitement flashed in the gaze of those 2 knights. His citizens often loved a down to earth kings.
Abel and Bartoli entered the teleportation circle first and disappeared in a flash of white light. He then let the 4 griffin knights enter, and they disappeared as well.
In Harry Castle, Abel saw the 4 griffin knights reappeared.
Those things were naturally powerful. They had the body of a lion, sharp claws, and the head and wings of an eagle. Lions were the king of the land in the Holy Continent, and eagles were the king of the sky. As a result of the two combined, those griffins were extremely powerful, no matter if they were in the sky or land.
But of course, they had made their name through their flying skills since they could correspond it perfectly with their knights on them.
Griffin knights were not only skilled in long-distance archery, but they could also use long spears and weapons to unleash knight attacks, so griffins were a perfect match.
Griffins were not the fastest flying mounts. Their speed was inferior to the orcs pace eagle, and many other flying mounts could go neck to neck with them.
The reason why it was agreed to be the most powerful flying mount was that it was one of the very few practical flying mounts. In the Kingdom of St Ellis, there were enough griffins to form a medium-sized team of knights.
The orcs’ pace eagle could only be possessed by the extremely powerful, and the dwarf’s golden eagle was not as powerful as a griffin even though they could meet up to demand.
Abel scanned the 4 griffins with his power of the will. All 4 of them were females.
It was expected. There was no way the Kingdom of St Elis would let him breed these things.
“Too bad!” At first, Abel wanted to pass down a team of griffin knights guarding the sky and a team of mount wolf knights guarding the ground for his offsprings. If he could do that, the knight force of the duchy of Carmel would be perfect.
With Abel’s scan, he also noticed how many battles those griffins had fought, just like their owners. Although they were not old, their body was filled with hidden injuries.
“Griffin knights, stay here from now on. Protect Harvest city. Bring your griffin to the hall!” Abel gazes at the griffins.
Those griffins knights were confused about why Abel would want them to bring their Griffins into the hall. Those things had the size of a warhorse. With their flying ability, a hall would be too small for them.
After they entered the hall, Abel took out 8 golden recovery potions from his portal ring. Although a golden recovery potion was inferior to a full recovery potion, it was still very effective for old injuries.
“You and your griffin can have one each. I’ll see the effect!” Abel placed the potions on the table of the hall.
The 4 griffin knights each stepped up and took the golden potions. They first poured one down their griffin’s mouth and then poured the other down their throat. You could tell how important their griffins were to them just by looking at this.
Their situation was very similar to Wizard Yveline. A normal potion could heal an injured human body, but side effects were unavoidable. That was how hidden injuries were created.
Normally hidden injuries were very hard to spot, but it could pile up over time. When it reached a threshold, the body would start to break down.
The reason why those griffin knights said they had used up their potential was probably due to their hidden injuries.
The 4 griffin knights flashed in golden light while Abel kept scanning their changes with his power of the will.
Black color impurities were expelled from their body, forming a layer of stinking black oil on their naked skin.
“Lindsey, bring them to take a bath. Also, the griffins as well. Bring them back to see me after!” Abel’s potion was effective.
“Yes, young master!” Steward Lindsey was one of the very few who address Abel as a young master, and he would only do so in Harry Castle.
The 4 griffin knights were brought away by steward Lindsey with a shocked look on their faces. Just from this, you could tell how amazing Abel’s potions were.
“Bartoli, your next mission is to get everyone who is responsible for harvesting those monthly crops to sign a contract. Also, let everyone know the area around Harry Castle, Abel Castle, and Bennett Castle will soon be locked down. No one is allowed to enter!” Abel lowered his voice.
Abel had changed his plan due to the probability of a huge incoming famine in the Holy Continent. Instead of spreading the 3rd goddess fountain water throughout Harvest City, he was just going to use it around the 500 acres of the 3 castles.
If the famine did not come true, people would not become suspicious even if the crops around here could be harvested once a month. Food was cheap.
However, if there was a famine, the table would turn. Although Abel was not afraid of enemies, it was best not to expose himself and cause unnecessary trouble.
“Yes, Master!” Although getting every farmer responsible for those crops to sign a contract was extremely complicated, Bartoli still agreed.
“Also, make more loyalty contracts. I need to get everyone close to the palace to sign one as well!” Abel added.
“Yes, Master!” Bartoli bowed again.
Abel was so glad he had brought Bartoli back from the Dark World. She had grasped the making of those Dark World royal contracts. It had helped Abel out a lot.
For a small noble family like Harry and Bennett, loyalty was a big issue. There were not many people they could trust, and they were constantly worried about people with bad intentions. But it was no longer the case with a magic contract. Their loyalty was guaranteed.
“Your Majesty!” The 4 griffin knights came back with Steward Lindsey. They all bowed.
“If you don’t know how to train to become a head commander, you can ask Lindsey. He will give you head Commander Hoover’s head Commander training guide. Use it, since I believe all of you have the potential!” Abel said with a smile.
