Chapter 457 - Great Qin Writ
Translator: Mr Voltaire
After seeing the massive gains that Great Qin had made, Zhao Fu had wanted to laugh, but he suddenly tasted a sweetness in his throat. He coughed up a mouthful of blood. His injuries from just then weren't light at all.
Zhao Fu decided to rest for a few days - he had been working quite hard the past month, and he had remained at the center of the ocean of bones almost every day to protect the Disaster Cavalry. His mind had been incredibly tense, and he hadn't relaxed at all.
Moreover, after destroying the four system main cities and obtaining their City Creation Stones, there would be a lot to take care of, so he decided to return to Great Qin.
Zhao Fu had the Undead army remain in that region for a few days while he returned to Great Qin. He gave the large number of corpses and the countless pieces of equipment to Li Si and Ba Qing to take care of.
He then carefully planted the Reality Tree in a large flower pot. It could grow five Reality Fruits per day, and it was incredibly important to Zhao Fu.
Afterward, Zhao Fu re-established the four system main cities and made Bai Qi, Wei Liao, Wang Jian, and Meng Tian the City Lords. Each of them controlled a City Lord Seal, and he ordered the four of them to go to Pouring Sun to protect the Disaster Cavalry and prevent anything unexpected from happening.
Now that the Great Qin Seal had obtained the power of four system main cities, the power it gave off wasn't weaker than a system main city's City Lord Seal's power. The Great Qin City had also become an Intermediate City, so Zhao Fu looked at its new stats:
Village Name: Great Qin City (Epic)
Level: Intermediate (1,884,000/32,000,000)
Village Area: 1,600 square kilometers
Village Territory: 51,800 square kilometers
Popular Support: 85
Village Special Stats: Territory Crop Output +130%, Territory Crop Growing Time -130%, Population Limit +95%, Residents' stats can randomly +9, Soldiers' stats +10%, Population Attraction +115%, chance of attracting higher grade population +115%.
Subsidiary Village Limit: 2,400
Subordinate Villages: Logue Village, Jean Village, Dorun Village, Li Family Village, Wolf Village, Ferocious Tiger Village…
These were the Great Qin City's current stats, and Zhao Fu casually looked through them. He found that there wasn't anything special, so he didn't pay them any great attention.
The only thing that he was excited about was that after obtaining the EXP from conquering and relocating four system main cities, Great Qin's level had rapidly increased, and it was halfway to an Advanced City. This meant that it wasn't too far away from leveling up to a Great City.
Zhao Fu returned to his room and sat cross-legged on his bed. He swallowed a healing medicinal pill and started to work on his injuries as he rested.
Time quickly passed, and it was now in the afternoon. The orange glow of the sun fell into Zhao Fu's room, and Zhao Fu slowly opened his eyes.
Zhao Fu's injuries had been fully healed, and he was also in peak mental condition. All of the weariness from before had been swept away.
Zhao Fu comfortably stretched and got off his bed. He opened his door and was surprised to find that Xianru was waiting outside.
Under the sunset, it seemed as if there was a golden cloth on her body. With her graceful figure and her partially-obscured face under the veil, she seemed extremely beautiful.
"What is it?" Zhao Fu asked.
Xianru smiled as she replied, "Your Majesty, the whole world has heard about the matters at Pouring Sun, and I've come to congratulate Your Majesty."
Hearing this, Zhao Fu lightly laughed, and because he knew that she definitely had something else, he asked, "Alright, let's get down to business."
Xianru understood and slightly lowered her head as she asked, "I wonder what Your Majesty is going to do about the Emperor Phoenix Statue. It has been placed on the Heaven Prayer Platform for a month, but it hasn't received any Phoenix Qi. Your Majesty, it would be a waste to not use such a godly item."
So it was about that matter. Because of the Undead Disaster, Zhao Fu had completely forgotten about this, and after thinking momentarily, Zhao Fu nodded and said, "Come with me!"
Following this, Zhao Fu went to the Meeting Hall and gathered many of his Generals, and he started discussing with them.
Zhao Fu had now changed his attitude towards the ordinary people. Before, he hadn't wanted to harm ordinary people and only wanted to deal a heavy blow to the powerful families.
However, they had posed a great threat to Great Qin in that battle, and if hundreds of millions of them gathered and were willing to fight to the death, the Undead Disaster would've been heavily wounded, if not destroyed.
Zhao Fu could no longer just ignore them, and he had to start dealing with them. Otherwise, if all of the players gathered together, it would be quite difficult for Great Qin to deal with them.
Great Qin currently had the Undead Disaster, but what if it didn't have the Undead Disaster? How would it face those 15 million players? With Great Qin's strength, it would be almost impossible to win. What's more, those 15 million players wouldn't die true deaths, while Great Qin's soldiers would remain dead if they died. It simply wouldn't be a fair battle.
Great Qin was now facing far too many enemies - there weren't just the countless factions attacking them now but also true empires, kingdoms, and divine nations in the future. Great Qin was still far too weak, and it couldn't do anything decisive.
Of course, those things were only considerations for the future - right now, the most important thing was the present. After their discussions, Zhao Fu decided to issue a Great Qin Writ.
Those who had a Great Qin Writ could establish a subsidiary faction of Great Qin. Factions with a Great Qin Writ would be acknowledged by Great Qin and wouldn't be attacked by Great Qin.
Regions with enough Great Qin Writs would be spared from the Undead Disaster, and those regions would be looked on favorably by Great Qin.
Any faction that belonged to Great Qin wouldn't be attacked, while any other faction that didn't have a Great Qin Writ would be viewed as Great Qin's enemies. Wherever the Undead Disaster reached, they would be expelled from system main cities and killed.
Zhao Fu wouldn't provide any support to these factions because they only belonged to Great Qin in name. It would be impossible for Great Qin to support them with any resources without knowing whether they were truly loyal or not.
Before, Zhao Fu wouldn't have been able to do such a thing, but because of the Undead Disaster and the battle where they had slaughtered 15 million players, countless people were willing to submit so that they wouldn't be destroyed by Great Qin. At the same time, Zhao Fu would have them attack the factions that hadn't submitted.
As the factions with the Great Qin Writs combined with the Undead Disaster attacked the opposing factions, it would lead to a situation where anyone who didn't submit to Great Qin would die.
Perhaps this would develop a group of loyal players, but it would definitely cause the players to whittle down each other's numbers. That way, Great Qin's obstacles would grow smaller and smaller.
With the Undead Disaster, Great Qin would be able to quickly establish a nation in order to deal with the crisis after the real world was devoured by the Heaven Awaken World. After obtaining the information from God Kerr, Zhao Fu's plans weren't as short-sighted.
He knew what would happen in the future and how terrifying the future was. However, it wasn't time to think of such things - it wasn't even certain whether Great Qin could survive during such a time.
At the same time, under Xianru's recommendation, Great Qin also proclaimed a Holy Daughter Writ.
