Chapter 1788: The Tian Yuan Clan (Two)
After Jian Chen successfully purchased the land of the Sen clan, the other people of the Mo clan and the Ando clan all returned. At this moment, all of them had gathered within the discussion hall of the Sen family. However, there were no more people from the Sen family there anymore.
All the people of the Sen family had moved out as quickly as possible.
"From today onwards, the Tian Yuan clan has been formally founded. Mo Ling, Ando Fu, I was wondering if you were willing to join my Tian Yuan clan?" Jian Chen asked in a dignified manner as he sat at the very front. He really did possess the bearing of a patriarch right now.
Mo Ling and Ando Fu had already made up their minds about joining Jian Chen's clan long ago. The two of them both announced that they would be joining the Tian Yuan clan without any hesitation. All the elders from their clans would join as well.
It was also at that moment that Jian Chen formally founded the Tian Yuan clan. The first group of members was composed of the people from the Tian Yuan Continent, the Mo clan, and the Ando clan.
"Patriarch, all clans that move into one of the thirty-six provincial cities in the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian require the permission of the divine kingdom's officials. The first condition to move into a provincial city is to possess three Gods. We've already fulfilled that. We just need to seek the royal city's permission," said Mo Ling. He explained the various rules of the divine kingdom to Jian Chen in detail.
"Every century or millennia, you must pay thirty percent of your income to the royal city…"
"However, all clans that have the right to move into the provincial city but do not have territory can receive a personal command from the royal city after gaining permission so that the other clans in the provincial city must hand up territory that can be purchased…"
"If a clan in the provincial city has less than three Gods, they must move out. If they don't, the other clans must destroy them. The people responsible for this area in the royal city might even come personally…"
Jian Chen immediately frowned when he heard about all the rules the divine king had set down. The divine kingdom really had many rules, making it very difficult for him to adapt.
"What if you've reached Overgod?" Jian Chen asked.
"Overgods possess extremely great status within the Divine Kingdom of Pingtian. If you've reached Overgod, you only need to pay ten percent, and the provincial city where the Overgod resides can be directly handed over so that the Overgod can rule over it. The royal city will not interfere. Even if there are new clans that want to move into the provincial city, they don't have to ask the royal city for permission anymore. They'll only have to ask the Overgod…" Ando Fu said fervently. Overgods basically ruled supreme in an entire province. They were insurmountable existences.
Jian Chen gently knocked the arm of the chair he sat on with his knuckles. After some thought, he said, "If that's the case, we don't have to ask for permission from the royal city. Mo Ling, Ando Fu, go summon your scattered clansmen. Now that our Tian Yuan clan has just been founded, we're in desperate need of people. Spend the next few days to properly decorate the clan. Once it's all completed, send invitations to all the powerful clans in the city. We're going to hold our founding ceremony formally."
"What! We don't have to ask for permission?" Mo Ling and Ando Fu were stunned, but excitement soon filled their faces.
On the next day, the plaque that represented the Tian Yuan clan was hung high up above the main entrance. However, the Tian Yuan clan had just been founded, so no one knew about them. There was barely anyone who knew about them at all in the entire city.
A few of the clans in the city, along with the Huo family that Jian Chen had competed with for the territory, naturally learnt about the founding of the Tian Yuan clan. However, now that quite a few clans were moving out of the provincial city, the territories were being divided up once again within the city, so the clans in the city all busied themselves with taking over the empty land. For this period of time, no one paid too much attention to the new Tian Yuan clan, including the Huo family.
Jian Chen founded the clan in the provincial city only to provide a quiet environment for everyone from the Tian Yuan Continent to cultivate. He had no desire for anymore territory, so he did not try to take over any more land after buying the Sen family's territory.
Moreover, with his current strength, he basically reigned supreme in the provincial city. According to the rules of the divine kingdom, the city was already his territory. No matter how much land the other clans occupied, he could make them spit it all up with just a single word.
This was because the royal city would not interfere if a clan with an Overgod wanted to take the entire city as their territory.
Mo Ling and Ando Fu used a special method to gather all their scattered clansmen. In just a few days, all the people from the two clans arrived in the city in small groups, gathering at the Tian Yuan clan.
At the same time, the Tian Yuan clan sent out a notice in the city for the recruitment of guards.
A clan could not be founded with just them. They needed a large number of guards and servants to deal with regular affairs. They needed to recruit these people from elsewhere.
Of course, Jian Chen let Mo Ling and Ando Fu handle these matters. Although he had founded the clan, he was unwilling to waste his time and energy on these miscellaneous matters. He became a completely irresponsible patriarch.
As Mo Ling, Ando Fu, and so on poured their hearts out to decorate the Tian Yuan clan, Jian Chen arrived in the back courtyards that had been labelled as forbidden grounds. He saw that Shangguan Mu'er, Xiao Jin, Xiao Ling, the white tiger, Houston, Rui Jin, Hong Lian, Hei Yu, Nubis, the Seven-colored Heaven-devouring Beast, and the few people from the World of Forsaken Saints had all appeared outside.
Jian Chen stood before them and smiled warmly. He took out a bottle from his Space Ring, and as he opened it, a dense fragrance immediately emerged.
"It smells so good. Big brother, what is it?" Xiao Ling bounded before Jian Chen. She stared at the bottle in Jian Chen's hand with her large, bright eyes, and she could not help but gulp. She had begun to drool.
The fist-sized Seven-colored Heaven-devouring Beast fluttered over as well. It also stared at the jade bottle with its small eyes. It was filled with eagerness.
Seeing how greedy Xiao Ling had become, Jian Chen could not help but knock her head. His gaze was filled with uncontainable love as he said to everyone, "This is liquid lime. It's extremely valuable. Just a single drop of it is enough to modify the constitutions of those below Godhood, allowing them to cultivate with ease. It can also temporarily raise your ability to comprehend, making comprehending the laws of the world even easier. While you still haven't reached Godhood, the liquid lime will be the most effective so ingest a drop quickly."
Afterwards, Jian Chen gave a droplet of liquid lime to everyone. Just like that, he lost most of it. In the end, only five drops of liquid lime remained in the bottle.
