Xiang Nan waved his hand and released a stream of Yuan Qi, immediately engulfing 70 to 80 people.
However, there were a total of more than 700 people here, and the 70 or 80 people he had captured were simply not enough.
At this moment, the convoy had already been thrown sideways. Even though the ice path was a thousand meters wide, if it was thrown at such a speed, it would crash in less than ten seconds.
Yuan Meng and Slaughter luck directly broke the window and jumped out. Once the two behemoths landed, they immediately supported the tail-flapping vehicle with both hands.
Two heavy hits rang out. The car they were blocking stopped, but the other cars were still shaking due to inertia.
"Xiao Jun, come with me!"
Xiang Nan shouted and jumped out first. As soon as he stood on the surface of the ice, his feet slipped and he could only leave the ground and block the carriage in a flying state.
Xiao Jun also joined in. The four of them blocked the long carriage, allowing the convoy to survive.
However, at this moment, there were already three cars hanging in the air at the rear of the convoy. If it weren't for the steel ropes connecting them, they would have fallen off the convoy long ago and crashed into the ground.
"What's going on!" Xiang Nan stabilized the vehicle, retreated the long convoy, and then flew up to look ahead.
This sight caused Xiang Nan to feel both furious and surprised.
There were murderers slaughtering civilians ahead!
As for those murderers, they were all manipulating giant metal golems. Each golem was ten meters tall, each holding a huge saber in his hand!
"Heaven Origin Realm, you've really seen a ghost!" Xiang Nan's pupils constricted. He saw that those puppets actually possessed strength above the fifth level of the Heavenly Yuan Realm!
The puppets themselves did not have any boundary division, because the puppets did not possess a spiritual sea, but their strength could be divided according to the strength of a martial artist. In general, they could be divided into what boundary they were equivalent to a human.
The mechanical beasts that Xiang Nan had encountered in the Devil Sea back then were precisely this principle. However, the realms of those mechanical beasts were far inferior to the realms of these metal puppets.
There were also two convoys of demonic beasts right in front of them. The battle just now was triggered by the murderers stopping those two convoys to kill.
At this moment, a puppet that was twelve meters tall suddenly soared into the sky! The giant puppet's head was empty, and there was a Profound Dao cultivator sitting inside.
The cultivator had a ferocious smile on his face. He maintained the formation on the puppet, drove the puppet down from the sky, and stamped off a vehicle with one foot!
A violent Yuan Qi shock wave spread wildly again.
Those murderers dragged the travelers out of the convoy and killed them on the spot!
At this time, there were more than a hundred corpses on the ice.
"These bastards!" Xiang Nan pulled out his saber and rushed towards the murderers. He shouted, "You three protect the convoy. Leave the rest to me."
"Oh? There's a busybody here!" The giant puppet closest to Xiang Nan immediately turned around and ran towards Xiang Nan.
This puppet could be said to be a battle puppet. All parts of its body, as well as the various formations hidden within its body, were all used to fight.
The puppet even had four legs and eight arms. Each arm was holding a giant ten-meter broadsword, and its realm was already equivalent to a human martial artist's sixth level of Heavenly Yuan.
The puppet's ten-meter-long saber collided with Xiang Nan's giant saber.
Xiang Nan's four-meter saber had always been exaggerated in shape. The moment he took it out, it possessed an incomparable visual shock, but in front of these puppets, it was much weaker.
However, Xiang Nan's strength was very strong. When the two blades collided, the heavy saber of the puppet was directly slashed away, and even the back of the hand that grabbed the saber was broken!
"Bastard!" Xiang Nan jumped up and directly jumped onto the puppet's chest. The huge saber stabbed towards the Xuandao cultivator on the puppet's head.
"Ascension Formation!" The Xuandao cultivator was shocked and hurriedly slapped the puppet with his palm.
At this moment, a circular diagram on the puppet's body suddenly shone. A strange power suddenly tossed Xiang Nan into the sky!
Xiang Nan felt like he was weightless in an instant, like a feather floating in the air.
Not far away, the screams of civilians being slaughtered could be heard again.
Xiang Nan was furious. He was in the air and slashed at the puppet!
A fierce saber light shot out, directly slicing the puppet's entire waist!
The Xuandao cultivator crawled out of the room in a sorry state. Immediately after, there was a loud boom. The puppet he was riding on exploded violently due to the destruction of the formation.
The cultivator didn't even let out a miserable scream when he was blasted to pieces.
Xiang Nan turned around and rushed towards another puppet.
There were a large number of these murderers, and there were twenty-three puppets under their control.
"Where did this wild brat come from? He doesn't know whether to die or not!" A 15-meter-tall metal puppet rushed towards Xiang Nan. This puppet's realm had already reached the astonishing first level of Heaven Scryer!
Xiang Nan's pupils shrank. He had never imagined that there would be such a powerful combat puppet in such a damn place!
The combat puppet also had eight arms, and its entire body was actually wrapped in a thick layer of Astral Qi.
Xiang Nan directly charged forward and used his shoulder to knock the puppet into pieces. He reached out and pulled out the cultivator on the puppet's head and cut it in half.
Xiang Nan charged into the army of murderers as if he had entered an uninhabited realm. He was actually using his flesh and blood to suppress the metal puppets. The puppets that he had struck were powerless to retaliate.
"Retreat! Retreat!" A murderer shouted loudly.
Eighteen of the twenty-three puppets were shattered by Xiang Nan. The last five puppets flew into the sky and turned into bright light to flee.
"Save me! Save me!" Xiang Nan ignored the pursuit of the murderer and hurriedly called Xiao Jun and the others over to heal the wounds of the injured.
Previously, the civilians in Xiang Nan's convoy had also rushed over to help. Some helped bandage the wounded, while others fed the wounded with herbs.
The civilians who were attacked were all extremely miserable. Most of them had broken arms and legs. Some of them had their legs crushed by the puppets. Those bloody legs were stuck on the ice path and could not be pulled off.
Seeing this scene, Xiang Nan's eyes turned red and he angrily said, "Who were those people just now? Why did they attack civilians?"
The person in charge of their convoy said with a grim expression, "Those are the people from the sect."
"What?" Xiang Nan was shocked, "The righteous sects should act righteously and protect the civilians. How could they torture and kill the civilians so unscrupulously?"
"This matter is very complicated." The person in charge sighed.
"It doesn't matter. I have a lot of time. Tell me about it."
Xiang Nan used the Nine Purities Cosmos Skill to treat the injured, while listening to the person in charge explain the situation of the Iron Continent Sect.
In the beginning, the local sect was indeed a decent sect. Like other continents, not only did they have good relations with the government, they also cared for the commoners.
After all, the main reason why a sect could continue to exist was that the sect needed to continuously absorb young martial artists from the commoners to strengthen its own power.
But afterwards, everything became abnormal, causing the local sect to gradually walk a crooked path.
