Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 1018
Chapter 1018 – The Might of the Blood Spirit Beasts
Standing calmly outside the carriage, Zhao Hai was holding a cup of tea in his hand. The tea was the one produced by the s.p.a.ce, so its taste was quite fragrant. Also, Zhao Hai’s tool for drinking tea was very special. Instead of being called a teacup, it was much more appropriate to call it a small teapot.
This kind of small pot was specifically used for steeping tea to drink. Such a small pot can’t be used alongside a cup, so one could only drink directly from the pot. Zhao Hai liked this way of drinking before, so after the pot can be produced by the s.p.a.ce, he immediately had the processing machine make one for him.
In front of Zhao Hai were Guli and Jiang Zheng. The three people atop the bone carriage were stopped about two li(one kim) away from the blood river. In front of them was Addison and his Undead Army.
Zhao Hai already told Addison about his plan, and Addison also understood what Zhao Hai wanted to do. Because of this, there was no need to command the Undead. They would just have the Undead clash with the enemy head-on.
By now, the Dark Temple had already started their charge. They needed to pa.s.s the Blood River before they could make an attack.
Zhao Hai now had the chance to see the Blood Spirit Beasts. And he also wanted to know why such a river had become the biggest obstacle to the unification of the Underworld.
Under Zhao Hai’s gaze, a team of the Dark Temple’s undead began to fly across the Blood River. These Undead didn’t have any organization and just directly rushed over.
Before long, these Undead were now over the Blood River. At this moment, the Blood River’s surface seems to boil. One after another, the bubbles emerged. It seemed like the Undead were being plunged into boiling water.
Just as the fastest Undead had flown 50% of the way, flying red figures went out of the river. These figures were very fast. And like red arrows, they went to shoot towards the fiery souls.
The speed of these Undead weren’t slow, and the worst of them were at the Gold Skeleton level. But compared to these red figures, they were too slow. It didn’t take too long before a first batch of Undead were shot down.
When these Undead fell down into the blood river, they immediately plunged to the bottom, there wasn’t even a wave caused by a struggle. It was also at this time that the red arrows began to show their true self.
Just as what Addison and the others said, these Blood Spirit Beasts a.s.sume whatever form they decided to. Naturally, they were still blood red in color, but their looks were different. Their shapes ranged from tigers to wolves, octopus to squid, and in any form you could think of. They also had differing body sizes, some of them were big and some were also small.
Among these Blood Spirit Beasts, the least seen form were the humanoid ones. However, Zhao Hai could see that although these humanoid Blood Spirit Beasts were in the minority, their status seemed to be the highest. Each humanoid Blood Spirit Beast had a group of Blood Spirit Beasts surrounding them.
The Blood Spirit Beasts’ attacks were very barbaric. They didn’t hesitate to throw themselves into the remaining Undead. The remaining Undead have also begun to counter attack.
When the two sides began to exchange moves, Zhao Hai finally understood why the Blood Spirit beasts were very hard to kill. Their bodies were simply fluids, changing form at will. They could be soft like water and then hard like ice. Their attacks had very formidable range of actions.
Zhao Hai drank some tea before he opened his eyes and muttered, “No wonder this Blood River became the Dark Temple’s greatest obstacle in uniting the whole Underworld. These Blood Spirit Beasts have really good combat power. If we receive them into the s.p.a.ce, then we might gain another attacking method.”
Guli and Jiang Zheng were similarly looking at the fight occurring above the Blood River. As soon as they heard Zhao Hai, both of them looked over. Then Guli said, “Young Master, these Blood Spirit Beast are very strong. Moreover, it seems like they also have their own power division. These humanoid shaped beasts, for example, they have the strongest attack, similar to Crystal Skeleton level. They’re very difficult to deal with.”
Just as Guli said this, the humanoid Blood Spirit Beasts began to make a move. These humanoid Blood Spirit Beasts have different combat forms. Some of these humanoid beasts stood far away and kept waving their hands. As they waved their arms, blood would fly out of the river to attack their targets. It seems like these were magic spells that would control the blood from the Blood River.
On the other hand, there were humanoid beasts that stretched their arms into the Blood River and turning the blood into weapons. These humanoid beasts preferred to fight close-combat.
The first batch sent by the Dark Temple to traverse the Blood river weren’t strong Experts. Under the attacks of the Blood Spirit Beasts, this batch was annihilated quickly. This was something out of Zhao Hai’s expectation.
However, after these Blood Spirit Beasts killed the Undead, they immediately fell into the Blood River. Then the river resumed its silence, it was as if the Blood Spirit Beasts never appeared in the first place.
Just as the b.l.o.o.d.y River quieted down, a huge batch of Dark Temple undead immediately flew over. Zhao Hai could also see that these Undead were higher-ranked than the previous batch.
The speed of these Undead was also faster. When they reached the middle of the Blood River, the river was still quiet, no Blood Beasts emerged. Only when the quickest Undead of this batch flew over three-quarters of the river did the Blood Spirit Beasts return.
When Zhao Hai saw this situation, he knew that the Dark Temple was playing with the Blood River’s cooldown. From what was seen, it was clear that the Blood River’s Blood Spirit Beasts needed some time before they could re-emerge. And since the Dark Temple had grasped this time difference, they immediately sent a large amount of Undead into the second batch.
Zhao Hai knew that this experience was paid for by the Dark Temple using the lives of countless Undead. But even if these Undead had rushed over, their troubles weren’t finished. This was because there was still an Undead army waiting for them on the other side.
Addison immediately commanded his Undead to overrun the Dark Temple’s Undead. It didn’t take too long before the two sides fought against each other.
Including Vampires, the Undead rarely bleed, they didn’t have any blood inside them. In this war, one couldn’t see a single splash of blood. However, the brutality of the scene was something that couldn’t be seen in any human war.
At the same time, the Dark Temple on the opposite bank was sending a constant stream of Undead to cross the river. Although the Blood Spirit Beasts were causing them trouble, it was completely impossible to block all of the Undead. Because of this, more and more Undead began to embark on the opposite sh.o.r.e.
Zhao Hai just sat there and didn’t make a move. The Undead they brought out this time was about 500 million. Even the Dark Temple would have a hard time killing all of these Undead.
On the other hand, Guli and the others were already anxious. This was because the Undead coming over were getting stronger and stronger.
Zhao Hai saw this and couldn’t help but smile. He waved his hand and grabbed a huge stone from his side. Then he turned this stone into a chair. Zhao Hai also put away his teapot. Now that the Dark Temple had attacked, his teapot would be too eye-catching.
Zhao Hai continued to sit outside and looked at the fight in front. Then at this time, several strong spiritual forces began sweeping in from the opposite bank. Naturally, Zhao Hai felt these spiritual forces. His brow couldn’t help but go up, he knew that the Experts of the Dark Temple were finally going in.
Zhao Hai didn’t worry as he just met those spiritual forces with his own. The spiritual forces slammed into each other in the air. After a loud bang, the Dark Mist about 100 meters away from Zhao Hai was cleared for a moment. One could see how strong the forces were just by looking at the impact.
Guli, Jiang Zheng, and the others also felt these opposing forces and also sent their own to clash with it. Although the two sides have yet to meet each other, the clash between spiritual forces was clearly felt.
After the spiritual forces of both sides clashed for several times, they all retreated. Battling with spiritual forces wasn’t a good thing. It was too dangerous, it was even more dangerous than close-combat fighting. Because of this, both sides decided to retreat and save their spiritual force.
Not long after that, the Dark Temple’s experts flew over the Blood River. The Blood Spirit Beasts simply couldn’t stop these Experts, the only thing they could do at most was cause some trouble.
The Experts coming over numbered around ten, and two of them were at Addison’s level. One of these Experts was a Skeleton, while the other was a Lich. Besides these two, the other eight people had levels not lower than Guli and Jiang Zheng.
Addison also led his men as well as Guli and Jiang Zheng to meet the enemy. Zhao Hai didn’t think about going along with them. Although the people sent by the Dark Temple were strong, Addison himself wasn’t a soft persimmon. With Addison’s strength as well as his subordinates, stopping these Experts was completely doable. There was no need for Zhao Hai to make a move.
Although it hasn’t been a long time since Zhao Hai and Addison’s fight, Zhao Hai’s current strength had already completely exceeded Addison. If they fight right now, Addison wouldn’t be able to last for more than 50 moves.
With the help of the s.p.a.ce, as well as the Dao Lotus, Gold Core, and Spirit Avatar, Zhao Hai’s cultivation strength was increasing every second. Although Zhao Hai didn’t deliberately practice lately, slowing his cultivation down, this didn’t mean that Zhao Hai wasn’t getting stronger. Because of this, compared to before, Zhao Hai’s strength had increased.
Also, Zhao Hai’s body had absorbed a lot of experience lately. Since he had little fighting experience in the past, Zhao Hai was almost forced to a corner than Addison. But now, after gaining battle experience, Zhao Hai’s usage of his energy had become more sophisticated. This caused Zhao Hai’s overall fighting prowess to undergo an increase. At this point, characters like Addison wouldn’t be able to clash against him. Zhao Hai would need a stronger enemy to use his strength on.
Chapter 1019 – Devil Witch and Blood Bones
Because of these reasons, Zhao Hai didn’t bother to make a move. In any case, Addison was fully able to deal with the people sent by the Dark Temple. Things wouldn’t be different if Zhao Hai didn’t make a move.
Addison looked at the two Experts in front of him. He didn’t doubt Zhao Hai’s words at all, but he believed that the Dark Temple would at most send one person at his level. But now, two actually came. And more importantly, he knew about these two experts, they were famous Experts from the Dark Temple. It seems like the Dark Temple was truly prepared to suppress him and his goal of unifying the Resistance Army.
Addison looked at the two Experts and said, “Devil Witch, Blood Bones, I didn’t think that the two of you would actually team up against me. What? You think you can kill me with just the two of you?”
The Skeleton Blood Bones smiled and said, “Addison, why would you think that? This time, we’ve risked a lot to attack you, and we also know that the two of us aren’t enough to kill you. But as long as you’re seriously injured, then everything would be easy, isn’t it?”
What Blood Bones said was reasonable. The risk he was talking about pertains to the Blood River. One shouldn’t think that the Blood River’s attacks were just like the ones before. There were even more advanced Blood Spirit Beasts present. But those beasts generally wouldn’t easily go out.
After many years of experimentation, the Dark Temple had figured out some rules. If one King-level Expert pa.s.ses through the river, then the river would not send a King-level Blood Spirit Beast. But if there were two or more King-level experts, the Blood River would have a chance to send King-level beasts. If two King-level Experts wanted to cross the river at the same time, then they would need to be at least ten li(5km) away from each other to not cause the Blood River to send King-level beasts to attack. This was also one of the reasons why the Resistance Army was able to defend for a long time.
Because of this situation, the Resistance Army would only need to station a King-level Expert every ten li along the river. And at the same time, these Experts wouldn’t worry about having two or more King-level experts attacking them.
Naturally, a place where two Experts attack at the same time wouldn’t necessarily encounter an attack. The chance of the Blood River sending a King-level Beast was about 50%. That was to say that Devil Witch and Blood Bones had indeed risked getting in danger in order to attack Addison. The two had a 50% chance of being attacked by six to eight Experts of the same level when crossing the river. Of course, they also had a 50% chance of going through successfully.
But from what was seen, it was very obvious that they were very lucky, they managed to get through without getting attacked.
However, if there were three King-level Experts attacking Addison, then their chances of being attacked would increase to about 80%. And if there were four King-level Experts, the chance of being attacked would become 100%. This meant that as long as there were four King-level Experts above the Blood River, they would definitely be attacked by King-level Blood Spirit Beasts.
It was because of all these reasons added together that Blood Bones said that they were risking a lot when attacking Addison. But two King-level Experts were still not enough to kill another King-level Expert, only enough to seriously injure. Therefore, Addison wasn’t too afraid of the two.
Addison might be seriously injured after fighting these two and he might need to recuperate for a long time, but don’t forget that Addison can return to the s.p.a.ce. As long as he returns, he can ask the s.p.a.ce to give him treatment. Addison could reset his state at any time, naturally this made him unafraid of any injury.
Addison looked at Blood Bone and Devil Witch before he coldly snorted and said, “You Dark Temple fellows really like to plot and scheme. You don’t want me to unify the Resistance Army? Then let me tell you, I will certainly have the entire Resistance Army under my control.”
The Lich coldly replied, “You actually still think that you can live properly after today.”
After saying that, the Lich’s body slowly faded before it blended into the Dark Fog. On the other hand, Blood Bone’s crystal-like skeleton changed color and turned blood red. Then on Blood Bone’s left hand, a thick greatsword appeared. On the hilt of the sword was an image of a malicious ghost. It looked like it could take a bite out of anyone at any time.
This greatsword was also blood red. The body of this sword was very thick, giving it a very heavy aura. It’s handle was very long, enough for one to use both of their hands to hold it. One could see at a glance that Blood Bones’ attacking power was something not to be underestimated.
The weapon of an Undead generally came from their own body. This function had been an instinct imbued onto the souls of the Undead. As long as an Undead reaches Silver-rank, they could make a weapon out of their own body. The hardness of this weapon would be directly proportional to their rank.
After Blood Bones took his weapon out, he smirked and charged towards Addison. And this attack also acted as a signal to the ther high-rank Undead to launch an attack against Addison’s men. There were only two people among the group who didn’t move, and they were Guli and Jiang Zheng.
Although Guli and Jiang Zheng had yet to be considered to be equal to King-level characters such as Addison, they were already half a step away from reaching that level. The reason why they didn’t move was because they were preparing to deal with the second King-level expert going after Addison.
One shouldn’t be complacent upon seeing that the Lich had disappeared. In fact, this was one of the moves the Lich race use. They would vanish into the Dark Mist and only appear when they attack, until then, n.o.body would know where they were. Because of this, not only were the Lich formidable Mages, they were also terrifying a.s.sa.s.sins in the presence of the Dark Mist.
Since the Lich were immune to any physical damage, they were able to stealthily blend into the Dark Mist to attack their enemies. But because of their physical immunity, their ability to attack had also been taken away. Therefore, they could only command the Dark Mist or use magic attacks. But even so, their enemies wouldn’t dare to underestimate them.
Addison already took his snake sword out and clashed with Blood Bones. Since both were very familiar with fighting and also had the same strength, they didn’t go all out despite clashing multiple times.
Addison needed to make some room for himself to counter the Lich while Blood Bones needed to make room for himself to defend against Guli and Jiang Zheng. After all, Guli and Jiang Zheng’s strength have also been noted by the Dark Temple.
Blood Bones was also wondering about Kampala who was always with Guli and Jiang Zheng. It was because of Kampala’s absence that Blood Bones needed to be more careful. Kampala was also a Lich and was able to hide in the Dark Mist.
Zhao Hai kept sitting in his stone chair without the intention of entering the fight. Even the Lich hiding the Dark Mist wasn’t a threat to his current strength.
Devil Witch and Blood Bones were able to note Zhao Hai’s presence. After all, Zhao Hai didn’t deliberately hide his figure as he just sat there and spectated the entire battle. Zhao Hai’s lack of action made him even more noticeable. Everyone was fighting while Zhao Hai was sitting alone. It would be difficult for anyone to not notice Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai didn’t care about any of these thoughts. However, this temperament made him look very arrogant. This attracted the ire of Devil Witch. The Lich didn’t attack Addison and instead slowly went over to Zhao Hai.
His speed was very slow, seemingly afraid of making too big of a move and alert Zhao Hai. This was also another characteristic of the Lich. Although they can integrate into the Dark Mist, their bodies weren’t one with the Dark Mist. Therefore, if they make a sudden movement, they would cause the Dark Mist to be disturbed, making other people discover their trail. Because of this, the Lich moved very slowly in the Dark Mist.
When Zhao Hai saw that Devil Witch was heading towards him, he couldn’t help but smile. Then he immediately told Guili and Jiang Zheng about Devil Witch’s location through his mind.
Guli and Jiang Zheng were now equal to Zhao Hai’s summoned creatures. Because of this, Zhao Hai can directly talk to them using his mind. He used this method to relay to them the exact location of the Lich.
Although Guli and Jiang Zheng were known for their physical attacks, this didn’t mean that they don’t have any attacks that use magic. Upon reaching their current level, they were also able to freely convert their attacks between physical and magical attributes.
Guli’s weapon was his double-edged sword while Jiang Zheng had his nails. After the two received Zhao Hai’s instructions, they immediately attacked Devil Witch.
Devil Witch was planning on attacking Zhao Hai, but he didn’t expect Guli and Jiang Zheng to discover his location. Moreover, it seems like their positioning was very accurate. When he saw their attack, Devil Witch felt a sense of danger. The Lich immediately made a strange sound before he casted a magic shield in front of him and at the same time dodging to the side.
But because of this movement, Guli and Jiang Zheng were even more able to chase Devil Witch around. Addison and Blood Bones were also able to notice this situation. When Addison saw Guli and Jiang Zheng’s action, he immediately knew that it was Zhao Hai making a move. On the other hand, Blood Bones was puzzled. How could Guli and Jiang Zheng sense Devil Witch’s location? Then he began to think about Kampala, he might be the one who told Guli and Jiang Zheng about Devil Witch.
Actually, the people in the Underworld knew that the best counter to a Lich was another Lich. This was because when two Lich were stealthed in the Dark Mist, both of them would be able to sense each other’s location. Because of this, a Lich was the best means to find another Lich. And because of this knowledge, Blood Bones thought that Kampala was the one to discover Devil Witch.
But now that this happened, Blood Bones began to worry. This was because Devil Witch was now being pursued by Guli and Jiang Zheng, but Kampala has yet to emerge. This caused Kampala to be a hidden thorn that Blood Bones needed to be careful of.
Chapter 1020 – The Great Demon King’s Request
In a battle between Experts, once one side gets the momentum, then the other would start to feel pressured. In this case, the winner and the loser could be seen at a glance. At this time, Addison’s attacking rhythm was doing smoothly while Blood Bones can only pa.s.sively defend.
Although Addison was in the upper hand, the same thing cannot be said about his subordinates. It must be said that the strength of Addison’s men weren’t bad, and they weren’t that far off from Guli and Jiang Zheng. However, the people they were up against were on Guli and Jiang Zheng’s level. And even if they had the numerical advantage, they fell short when it came to quality.
And if we go down by another rank, Addison’s Undead were even worse. Even if there were quite a lot of them, the area they needed to defend was quite big in comparison to the amount of Undead that were coming. And although they had surrendered to the s.p.a.ce, they weren’t commanded by Lizzy and Megan. These Undead didn’t have any understanding with regards to battle formations. Therefore, they could only do primal battles without any proper control.
In this case, upon facing the seemingly unending Dark Temple Undead, it didn’t take long for them to be on the back foot.
Zhao Hai still didn’t make a move. They had already reached an agreement about this matter. Zhao Hai also felt that there were a lot of people on both sides of the Blood River using their spiritual force to check the situation in this place. At this time, Zhao Hai had already used a portion of his mental power to shroud himself, making others feel like Zhao Hai was just a piece of stone.
This wasn’t a difficult thing for Zhao Hai. After all, the s.p.a.ce had a lot of elements in it, unlike the Underworld where the Dark Element was the most prevalent. Zhao Hai could just take some earth element energy from the s.p.a.ce and wrap himself with it. If he was scanned with spiritual force, then the others would only see a rock.
Zhao Hai knew that the Dark Temple wouldn’t put too much pressure on the other regions. This was because their only target this time was Addison and his Undead. They just wanted to damage Addison’s vitality. As for the other defensive regions, the Dark Temple would just make sure that they wouldn’t be able to send support to Addison’s region.
But this was also where the Resistance Army wanted Addison to be. They planned failing to send any reinforcements for Addison, and the Dark Temple provided them with an excuse. This allowed the others in the Resistance Army to take advantage of the situation and back down without losing face. In dealing with Addison’s matter, it seems like the Dark Temple and the Resistance Army had reached an unexpected understanding.
Zhao Hai had already antic.i.p.ated this result. He also allowed the Dark Temple and Resistance Army do this. Addison’s advancement was too quick, causing the Dark Temple and the Resistance Army to be vigilant. Now that the Resistance Army has united, this caused Addison’s unification plan to decelerate. But this battle was actually a good opportunity to make the Resistance Army and Dark Temple feel relieved.
It can be said that except Addison, Guli, and Jiang Zheng, Zhao Hai was prepared to sacrifice the other Undead. Only when these people die would the other parties feel relaxed regarding Addison.
The fight was getting more and more brutal. Of the eight other experts that Blood Bones and Devil Witch brought, only four of them were left. And of the 40 other Experts that Addison had, only about 20 remained. At the same time, of the 500 million Undead that the s.p.a.ce had converted, 300 million remain in the battlefield. Although there weren’t any much blood in the battleground, broken bones and desecrated corpses littered everywhere. These were the Skeletons and Zombies that perished in the battle.
Fluttering around the battlefield were ma.s.sive amounts of fiery souls. These souls were floating above the remains of the Undead. But for the fiery souls near the blood river, all of them were sucked into the river. Who knows if they were being eaten by the Blood Spirit Beasts or being made into new Blood Spirit Beasts. Fiery souls were also continuing to slowly flow towards the river.
Of course, how could Zhao Hai let this opportunity off. He waved his hand and stealthily took the fiery souls into the s.p.a.ce. The levels of the fiery souls weren’t low, he might be able to upgrade his Undead using these in the future.
Addison and Blood Bones were still in battle, with Addison still having the upper hand. But after a long battle, b.l.o.o.d.y Bones was almost certain that Kampala wasn’t present, so he began to exert his full effort. However, Addison already gained the momentum. For b.l.o.o.d.y Bones to try to shift the situation would be almost impossible. The strength of the two were fairly even, it would be difficult for Blood Bones to go back from being at a disadvantage.
Guli and Jiang Zheng’s battle against Devil Witch was also doing well. The two sides were at a tie, with Guli and Jiang Zheng having a little bit of an advantage. However, it was still impossible for them to deal with Devil Witch in a short time.
Zhao Hai wasn’t worried about them. The Undead had more endurance compared to other people. From what can be seen, the battle should last for a couple of days more.
After seeing that there wouldn’t be that much change soon, Zhao Hai’s figure flashed as he entered the s.p.a.ce. Zhao Hai was certain that the Resistance Army wouldn’t let Addison die. This was because of Addison’s strength. If Addison died here, then the one who would benefit the most would be the Dark Temple. The Resistance Army didn’t want to lose an Expert, they only want to suppress Addison. Because of this, Zhao Hai was a.s.sured that Addison would be safe.
When he entered the s.p.a.ce, Zhao Hai saw that Laura and the others weren’t looking at the battle on the monitor. Instead, they went to the h.e.l.l s.p.a.ce to see the bone fields.
Currently there were a lot of dark-attributed plants being grown in the bone fields. Naturally, most of these were bone armors, followed by bone plants.
Although they didn’t know what bone plants could do, the most important thing was their essence. Cai’er knew this so she chose to plant a lot of them as well.
Laura and the others were full of enthusiasm while looking at the bone field. They were still chatting when Zhao Hai arrived. Zhao Hai looked at the group and said, “What are you chatting about? Did you see Addison’s fight?”
Laura and the others turned their heads and saw Zhao Hai. Lizzy pouted her lips and said, “What is there to watch? From what I can see, the battle would still take a couple of days. It’s too boring to watch them all the time.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I’m quite bored as well, so I came back. Why are you here? Don’t you dislike the environment?” To be honest, apart from the Undead, very few people liked the h.e.l.l s.p.a.ce. Even Zhao Hai was the same.
Laura smiled and said, “It’s nothing, we just wanted to see what the bone fields are like. We want to see it for ourselves so that if we find fields like these in the future, we can take them to the s.p.a.ce.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Alright, these kinds of things can only be met and not always available. There’s nothing else to look at here, let’s go back.” Laura and the others nodded and followed Zhao Hai back to the villa. Then Zhao Hai took the group and headed to Wild Dragon Island to see how Gimreden and the others were doing.
Although Gimreden was doing magic formation research, his direction was completely different from Kampala. His research still hinges on joining fiery souls and other items, not just pure magic formation research.
Zhao Hai didn’t say anything about this matter. Zhao Hai already told Gimreden that he would give the Lich absolute freedom when it came to research.
Gimreden was quite delighted with his current situation. Whatever he needed was being provided here. The test materials were also high-grade goods made of gla.s.s, which was easier to use than his apparatus back in the Underworld.
Most importantly, his research included a lot of other subjects. If he studied these things by himself, then who knows how many years it would take him. In Wild Dragon island, however, there were a lot of other Lich who has worked or were working in different topics. And with the data the others managed to get, Gimreden saved a lot of years of effort. This kind of research sharing was something that Gimreden welcomed the most.
Besides these, Gimreden also found other Lich who were interested in his study, allowing him to establish his own laboratory. At this time, Gimreden was high-spirited and quite motivated, as well as incomparably happy. Zhao Hai felt relief upon seeing this situation. Everything was good as long as Gimreden and the other Lich enjoyed their lives here.
After that, Zhao Hai went to visit the Demon s.p.a.ce. It’s been a while since Zhao Hai and the others visited the Demons. As soon as the group arrived in the Demon s.p.a.ce, all of them couldn’t help but think that they had come to the wrong place. Instead of being the Demon s.p.a.ce, it was more appropriate to call it an Elven Forest.
Zhao Hai discovered that the Demon Realm’s residents had already gone to the point of insanity when it came to plants. In their eyes, any plant was a treasure. Because of this, the Demon Realm was full of plants. Zhao Hai didn’t expect them to get this crazy. Zhao Hai almost couldn’t see the buildings among the mult.i.tude of plants covering them. Even the houses of the Demons were filled with vines, but they still looked simple and natural.
Zhao Hai was left not speechless. But after a while, Zhao Hai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Not only the commoner Demons were doing this, even the Great Demon King’s royal palace had this appearance.
When Zhao Hai went to the Great Demon King’s palace, the Great Demon King and Demon Dragon King were currently working on paperwork. They still needed to do their job. Of those entering the s.p.a.ce, only the Demons made Zhao Hai feel the most a.s.sured. This was because Zhao Hai discovered that the Demons were the most united group. Yes there were a lot of conflicts back in the Demon Realm, but those fights were because of land. The various races needed to live. But inside the s.p.a.ce, there was no need for them to fight for land. Therefore, all of them were living very well, n.o.body went to war. Although the Demons still couldn’t shake of the ferociousness in their nature, they didn’t fight with anyone. The crime rate of the Demons was very low.
Zhao Hai was very surprised with this result. He didn’t really expect it. The Demons had always been the synonym for aggression and evil. It was even said that they weren’t easy to get along with.
When the Great Demon King and Demon Dragon King saw Zhao Hai arrive, they immediately welcomed him into the room. At the same time, they had people prepare some food and wine. Zhao Hai looked at the two and could see that they had gained some weight. It seems like they were living much better compared to before.
Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile and said, “Good. It seems like you two had been living well. You’re putting on more weight.”
The Great Demon King laughed and said, “This is because of Mister’s blessing. We never even dreamed of being in our current situation.”
Zhao Hai looked at them and smiled, “Alright, let’s move on from the small talk. Your Majesty, I came here to ask you something. It seems like the Demons have taken a liking to plants. Do you have talented Potions Masters now?”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, the Great Demon King’s eyes couldn’t help but shine as he replied, “Does Mister want to recruit Potion Masters to be your subordinates? Good, good, the Demons have a lot Potion Masters. Moreover, their understanding regarding plants is very deep. They can set out at any time.”
Zhao Hai replied, “Is that so? Then that’s fantastic. You can choose 100 people for me to bring to Wild Dragon Island. I want them to research Potions. If they’re interested in other matters, they can also do it there.”
The Great Demon King quickly nodded and said, “Mister, rest a.s.sured, 100 people is not a problem. Not to say 100, even 1000 or 10 thousand people would be fine. But Mister, I also have something to ask you. I hope you can help us with this.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “There’s no need to be polite. Just tell me.”
The Great Demon King said, “Mister, you should know that the Demon Race has a very powerful clan. The Demon Ogres aren’t smart people, but they have great talent when it came to battles. Because of this, making them learn potion making is very difficult. However, there are some Demon Ogres who are interested in smelting. I hope Mister can provide a good teacher for them.”
When Zhao Hai heard the Great Demon King, he couldn’t help but stare. Then he began to get lost in his thoughts. He didn’t oppose the idea of the Demons learning how to smelt. Conversely, Zhao Hai was very glad to help the Demon Ogres. However, the Great Demon King’s request made Zhao Hai think of another matter.
Currently, there were a lot of races in the s.p.a.ce. And each race had their own specialty. But even so, not everybody in a race liked to do what they were good at. For example, there were Elves who didn’t’ want to make art, they wanted to do other things.
But if they depend on their race’s resources, their development would be very slow. Moreover, it was easy for these people to go down a wrong path. One shouldn’t underestimate the wisdom of these people, a lot of their ideas had been helpful to Karen’s research.
Zhao Hai wanted his people to live a good life, but what he did was just provide them with things that they would need and want. Zhao Hai failed to look at the matter of their education.
Zhao Hai was like a kind fisherman. He wanted to help others so he gave them some fish he caught. However, he failed to teach these people how to fish, and this wasn’t a very wise move.
Chapter 1021 – Inter-s.p.a.ce Academy Alliance
Don’t just give people fish, teach them how to fish instead!
These words had been said since ancient times, but Zhao Hai was only able to think about it at this moment. He had been continuously failing to see the educational problems of the people in the s.p.a.ce.
This problem didn’t refer to the teachings of the people inside the s.p.a.ce. In fact, the s.p.a.ce made education mandatory in all of the races. Therefore, the problem wasn’t in the main education sector.
The problem that Zhao Hai had thought of was the issue of the level of education. Things like magic formations of the Atlanta Plane being higher compared to the Ark Continent. They are the same magic formations, but one was at a higher level than the other.
There were already a lot of races inside the s.p.a.ce, but the degree of civilization differed from race to race, their development weren’t the same. If this development continues, then the disparity would be wider and wider. This wasn’t what Zhao Hai wanted to see, he wanted all of the races to develop at a balanced rate.
Zhao Hai can bluntly say that the most powerful military, magic, research, and overall quality of life was in Wild Dragon island. The best teachers could also be seen there. This was because all of the talents of the various races had been concentrated there.
When his thoughts reached this point, Zhao Hai’s eyes shone, he thought about an idea. If he made Cai’er take the most essential things about each subject and then made them into books to distribute to the different s.p.a.ces, wouldn’t civilizations throughout the s.p.a.ce be balanced?
There has yet to be academies in other s.p.a.ces. If people could go to these academies and learn, wouldn’t that be better? And if talents were found, Zhao Hai could take them to Wild Dragon Island for further study. This way, there would be more and more talents in Wild Dragon Island. The impact on this to the future would be very huge!
While Zhao Hai was thinking about an Inter-s.p.a.ce Academy Alliance. The Great Demon King on the side couldn’t help but get anxious. He didn’t think that his proposal would make Zhao Hai think for a very long time.
The Great Demon King was truly independent when he entered the s.p.a.ce, he will bargain back and forth with Zhao Hai. But now it had changed. After staying inside the s.p.a.ce, he had already favored the s.p.a.ce and wanted to give benefit to Zhao Hai. Proposing for the Demon Ogres to study blacksmithing wasn’t an excessive request. This was because the Great Demon King knew about the Dwarves in the s.p.a.ce. Zhao Hai can just have the Dwarves teach the Demon Ogres how to smith, there was no need to think much about it.
But now, after seeing Zhao Hai falling deep into thought, the Great Demon King couldn’t help but get nervous. He was afraid that he had touched Zhao Hai’s hidden bottomline. He was afraid that Zhao Hai would get offended.
On the other hand, Laura and the other knew that Zhao Hai must have thought about something significant, thus explaining his current state. Laura turned her head to the Great Demon King and said, “Your Majesty, there’s no need to worry. Brother Hai is just thinking about something. It isn’t because of the Demon Ogres, you can rest a.s.sured.”
The Great Demon King felt relieved when he heard this. At this time, Zhao Hai had consolidated his thoughts as he looked up to the Great Demon King and said, “Your Majesty’s proposal is very good. I just thought about a certain issue. Currently, the s.p.a.ce has a lot of advanced things. No matter magic or battle qi, both are advanced. However, everyone has been independently studying. Because of this, the levels of each race is uneven. Your Majesty’s request reminded me that we can make a collaboration between different s.p.a.ces, unifying the educational material so that we can reach the same standard. And because of that, we can make the teachers more focused. For example, the Dwarves are naturally best for blacksmithing. So those who want to study blacksmithing, no matter which race, would be able to study from the Dwarves. As for other things, like the Demons, you are skilled in warfare and fighting, so you can instruct other races on that regard. In the same way, the Elves can teach art, the other s.p.a.ce had their own specialties as well. With this, the attainment of the people inside the s.p.a.ce would be unified. What do you think?”
Although Zhao Hai said a lot of things, all present here were wise people, so they were able to immediately understand Zhao Hai’s point. Those present in the room couldn’t help but blink, then they nodded at the same time. The Great Demon King was very happy as he said, “Mister’s idea is very good. Except for battle tactics, the Demon s.p.a.ce is really lacking in other aspects. Back in the Demon Realm, even if you wanted to learn, you wouldn’t be able to. Now that there is a chance, there is no way that people would ignore it.”
Laura also nodded as she added, “Also, there’s no need to worry about advanced teaching manuals, we have already too many in our hands. The researches of the Lich wouldn’t be wasted. There are still some s.p.a.ces that don’t have an established magic theory. We can make books for them to learn from. This would increase their magic and martial skills.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Right, as long as we can raise their levels, then the overall state of the s.p.a.ce would improve. Everyone working together is much better than us doing our own things. However, we can’t take subjects that are too advanced. Even if we do take them out, the others wouldn’t be able to understand it. We’ll wait for a bit. After all the schools are united, then we can choose some talented students from these schools and have them study in Wild Dragon Island. After they learn, they can go back and teach the others. This way, the level of education on all the s.p.a.ces would slowly reach Wild Dragon Island’s level. This would make the s.p.a.ce develop even faster!”
“Good, good. This idea is good. Hahahaha. Fantastic!” When the Great Demon King heard Zhao Hai, he couldn’t help but stand out and stomp the ground from excitement. Everyone could see how motivated he was.
There was a reason why the Great Demon King was so motivated. Although they didn’t need to worry about food and clothing after entering the s.p.a.ce, the Great Demon King discovered that the Demons had started to forget about a lot of things. At this time, the Demons didn’t think about making progress since they could no longer be hungry. The Great Demon King was worried about this situation.
A nation that does not think will be doomed to be eliminated. The Great Demon King was very clear about this statement. He was worried that the Demons would continue to develop this way and would one day be driven out of the s.p.a.ce by Zhao Hai.
Zhao Hai’s proposition was actually very important for the Demons since this happened to solve this very matter. When the Great Demon King discovered the current state of the Demons, he immediately tried to find a solution. He wanted to enhance the overall state of the Demon Race. After some investigation, he discovered that it wasn’t the fact that the Demons had lost their ambition, it was actually because their educational level couldn’t allow them to progress.
Back in the Demon Realm, the Demon Ogres deemed strength to be the most important thing. This was because of the constant danger they encounter on a daily basis. If one doesn’t learn how to fight, then they would be courting death. However, now that there was no longer any danger inside the s.p.a.ce, their skills on warfare were now useless. Now there were a lot of Demon Ogres who wanted to study blacksmithing. Although blacksmithing needed high technical skills, the most important thing to a blacksmith was their strength. And strength wasn’t something that the Demon Ogres lacked. Althuogh they weren’t that stupid, the Demon Ogres just weren’t interested in potion making.
If this was on Earth, then even if the Demon Ogres didn’t want to study magic formations or potions, then they would have to endure. Otherwise, they would have no money to survive with.
However, the same cannot be true for the s.p.a.ce. Even if you cannot learn these things, then you would still be able to survive. Because of this, others can just live their days eating and practically doing nothing. With this, it’s natural for there to be no ambition that would bloom.
The Demon Realm had no research about other disciplines, so it was almost impossible to teach the Demons about things that they were interested in. Even magic formations and potion making would have to be studied from books. Their educational level was much worse compared to the Goblins and the people from the Ark Continent.
But now, Zhao Hai had solved this problem. The Demons can now choose what they want to study. Even if they cannot learn it in the Demon s.p.a.ce, the other s.p.a.ces can teach them. And most importantly, Zhao Hai’s plan had a certain hint of compet.i.tion. One shouldn’t forget that the most outstanding students would be sent to Wild Dragon Island for further studies. This was definitely great for the people inside the s.p.a.ce.
In fact, all races inside the s.p.a.ce were now aware about Wild Dragon Island’s existence. Even the Divines who had a grudge with Zhao Hai knew about it. This was also what Zhao Hai wanted, to make Wild Dragon Island the most sacred location inside the s.p.a.ce. This would also give him some advantages in his rule of the s.p.a.ce.
Actually, the number of Divines who hated Zhao Hai has been dwindling. It can be said that they had already accepted their fate, there was no use if they kept their hatred. This place was now where they would live and die, they were completely under Zhao Hai’s hand. Not accepting their current situation would just be detrimental to their future.
Additionally, they were able to eat and drink properly inside the s.p.a.ce, there was even no taxation. The commoner Divines began to discover that their living standards didn’t worsen, in fact, it was even better compared to before.
In any place, a commoner’s life was never easy. Take the Divine Realm for example. The Divines wanted to wage war and conquer other planes. However, they would need logistical supplies to do so. Soldiers need food, weapons, armor, all of these costs resources. And where would the resources come from? Part of it would be supplied by the va.s.sal races while the other part would be shouldered by the commoners. It was precisely because of this that the commoner Divines were taxed, and this tax wasn’t low.
However, there was no such issue inside the s.p.a.ce. n.o.body came to collect tax. Every work they did was all for their own benefit. This was a great motivating force.
