Chapter 416 - Total Natural Disaster Resistance
Translator: Mr Voltaire
Apart from the top three pills, a pill that also caught Zhao Fu's eye was the All Poison Divine Pill. The art of poison was incredibly mysterious and difficult to defend against, and even Emperors feared such a thing. As such, all Emperors had some way of defending against poison.
With the All Poison Divine Pill, Zhao Fu would be immune to all sorts of poison in the future, which would be quite good. There would definitely be people wanting to use poison against him in the future, so it would be good to have such a thing.
Apart from the All Poison Divine Pill, the Vermillion Bird Blood Pill was also quite good because it allowed one to have the Vermillion Bird's Bloodline. The Vermillion Bird was one of China's four holy beasts, so its power was definitely quite great.
Because the Vermillion Bird Blood Pill was ranked sixth, it was most likely not too powerful but also not too weak.
After seeing the tenth-ranked medicinal pill, the Hundred Dragon Sun Pill, Zhao Fu couldn't help but smile. This was indeed something that most men would want, but it simply sounded too exaggerated.
"Zhao Xin!" Suddenly, a familiar woman's voice sounded out from behind him. Zhao Fu turned and saw Jiang Rou smiling as she looked at him.
Zhao Fu also smiled as he replied, "Long time no see."
Jiang Rou nodded as she walked over to Zhao Fu and said, "You're so busy that it's difficult to even see you around!"
These days, Zhao Fu had been continuously moving about from region to region. If it wasn't because of the festival, he wouldn't have come to Holy Light City. After hearing Jiang Rou's words, he awkwardly smiled, and seeing that Jiang Rou looked quite good, he asked, "Have things been going well recently?"
"Mm!" Jiang Rou replied. The shop's business had been getting better and better, and the Jiang family's position had been on the rise as well. She no longer felt any pressure from her family, so she felt quite happy.
"How about you? Have you been well?" Jiang Rou caringly asked.
Zhao Fu thought about the recent events and replied, "Not too bad!"
When she heard this, Jiang Rou let out a small sigh of relief, "I feel like you're becoming busier and busier; I thought it was because of Great Qin's Legatee!"
Zhao Fu felt quite surprised and looked at Jiang Rou as he asked, "You know about Great Qin's Legatee?"
Jiang Rou covered her mouth as she laughed, "How could I not know? Now, every player knows about Great Qin's Legatee, and even though I don't care too much about those sorts of things, as someone a part of a big family, how could I not know?"
Hearing this, Zhao Fu could only nod.
Jiang Rou continued, "Before, I was quite worried about you because recently, Great Qin's Legatee has continuously destroyed a few nations. East Green is quite close to the Forest of Horrors, so I was worried that Great Qin's Legatee may have set his eyes on you. Looks like everything's fine!"
Hearing Jiang Rou's words of care, Zhao Fu felt a trace of warmth within his heart, and he chuckled as he replied, "Great Qin's Legatee probably won't make a move against me. Don't worry."
"That's good!" Jiang Rou replied as she charmingly smiled.
Following that, Zhao Fu and Jiang Rou chatted for a short while before they both happily departed.
After returning to Great Qin, Zhao Fu looked at Great Qin's overall natural disaster resistance stat. Most of it came from the Heaven Prayer Platforms, while there were other small bonuses.
[Great Qin - Heaven Prayer Platform]: A special structure of an Empire Legacy Village. It can level up with a village. Special Stats: Resistance to natural disasters +75%, Chance of spawning S grade or above villagers +40%.
[Great Shun - Heaven Prayer Platform]: A special structure of an Empire Legacy Village. It can level up with a village. Special Stats: Resistance to natural disasters +35%, Chance of spawning S grade or above villagers +15%.
[State of Wei - Heaven Prayer Platform]: A special structure of an Empire Legacy Village. It can level up with a village. Special Stats: Resistance to natural disasters +30%, Chance of spawning S grade or above villager s+10%.
[Later Zhou - Heaven Prayer Platform]: A special structure of an Empire Legacy Village. It can level up with a village. Special Stats: Resistance to natural disasters +40%, Chance of spawning S grade or above villagers +20%.
[State of Zheng - Heaven Prayer Platform]: A special structure of an Empire Legacy Village. It can level up with a village. Special Stats: Resistance to natural disasters +25%, Chance of spawning S grade or above villagers +5%.
The Heaven Prayer Platforms of the various nations had different stats based on the Fate of that nation. Of course, the most powerful one was Great Qin, and the weakest one was the State of Zheng.
Zhao Fu then looked at the other structures:
[Level 4 Earth Temple]: Contains a trace of divine power and can protect a piece of land. It requires sacrifices of incense, and the more incense there is, the more powerful the Earth Temple will become. Current stats: Crop production time -50%, crop output +35%, resistance to natural disasters +15%.
Water God Statue: Level 3, Description: A statue of a Water God that can protect boats on the water. It requires sacrifices of incense, and the more incense there is, the more powerful the Water God Statue will become. Current stats: Gives the Water God's protection and resistance to natural disasters +5%.
Finally, there was also the City God Temple that was now Level 4. It had a decent protective power and would definitely be of help when there were natural disasters. However, because it didn't have a natural disaster resistance stat, it wasn't counted.
Altogether, the total natural disaster resistance that Great Qin had was 195%, which meant that Zhao Fu would obtain 195% Virtue Points.
Natural disaster resistance was incredibly difficult to obtain. The Earth Temple that Zhao Fu had obtained quite early on was already Level 4, but after leveling up, only the crop production time decreased and crop output increased; it seemed that the 15% natural disaster resistance was its limit, and it wouldn't continue increasing, unlike the Heaven Prayer Platform.
The only thing that had some potential was the Water God Statue. This statue was quite special, and if properly nurtured, it could surpass the Earth Temple.
Now that Great Qin had such high natural disaster resistance, they essentially didn't have to fear any natural disasters. After all, the natural disasters wouldn't be apocalyptic, and Great Qin would be able to survive easily with its natural disaster resistance.
There wasn't much to prepare for the Disaster Festival because no one had any idea what would come and when. As such, it would be difficult to gain benefits from this festival.
For example, if there was a cyclone that was powerful enough to uproot trees and blow houses away, how would one stop it? Running away from it or resisting it wouldn't provide any Virtue Points; only by stopping the cyclone would one gain any Virtue Points.
Similarly for floods, one would have to stop the water, and for earthquakes, one would have to find ways for the ground to settle down - only then would one be able to obtain Virtue Points.
Virtue was based on achievements and morality, and in Buddhism, those with Virtue could become Buddhas and enter paradise.
However, if a person wanted to resist a natural disaster, the person would need immense strength; how could an ordinary person have such strength? As such, most ordinary people wouldn't be able to participate and could only do their best to survive. This was why this festival was also called the Suffering Festival.
