Release that Witch (放开那个女巫 fangkai nage nüwu) is a fantasy story series created by Er Mu (二目). 

The first chapter was released on March 30, 2016. The last chapter was released on June 4, 2019. There are a total of 1498 chapters and 5 volumes. Its English translation has also been completed. This is one of the best web novels I have read. The plot is good and moved at a great pace. Even though the details are done for each character, even some of the main characters are lacking, the plot and the detailing of the whole world and philosophy behind the civilization are great.

Synopsis:

Roland, a prince regarded as hopeless by his own father and assigned to the worst fief, spends his time developing a poor and backward town into a strong and modern city, while battling his siblings for the throne and absolute control over the kingdom. Join Roland as he befriends witches, combining their superior magic prowess with his various technological inventions to ascend to the throne and vanquish the invaders from the realm of evil on earth.
