Chapter 1315 – Suppression Everywhere!
Zhao Hai returned to the Space and then handed the task of making the weapons over to Cai’er. Then when he arrived at the villa, he immediately looked for Laura and said, “How is it? Did you discover anything?
Laura nodded and said, “I’m afraid this isn’t something that 1 or 2 people could achieve. The operation’s 20 Nascent Soul Experts seem to have an agreement to slow down. I’m afraid a lot of people are involved. Even if Yuan and the others get their explanation, it’s still impossible to get a complete result. At most, we can only punish a couple of scapegoats.”
Zhao Hai looked at the screen, his complexion sunk. After some time, he said, “It looks like people in the Machine Field are threatened by me. I’m Murdoch’s main target after all. But I don’t remember doing something threatening to the Machine Field.”
Laura looked at Zhao Hai, then she forced a smile and said, “Brother Hai, how can you say that you haven’t done anything that can be seen as a threat? Actually, your existence is the biggest threat to the Machine Field. Of course I’m referring to those higher-ups that benefit from the production chain of mechs and battleships.”
Hearing Laura, Zhao Hai stared for a moment. Then he quickly understood what she meant. Zhao Hai has been paying attention to the benefit chain of the mech and battleship production in the Machine Field. He also didn’t want to touch this chain. For Zhao Hai, he didn’t want to destroy it. This was because mechs and battleships weren’t disadvantageous. The existence of mechs and battleships allowed the Machine Field’s commoners to live in comfort. They were in a vastly better situation than the commoners of the other realms.
Even if the tiger doesn’t hurt anyone, it’s still a threat to other people. Zhao Hai didn’t want to touch their benefits, but this doesn’t mean that the higher-ups of the Machine Field weren’t afraid of him.
The higher-ups of the Machine Field had been continuously suppressing the realm’s Mages and Warriors. Besides the Six Realms Battlefield where Mages and Warriors could practice in relief, Mages and Warriors in the Machine Field didn’t have any better lives compared to the commoners. In terms of status, Mages and Warriors were inferior to mech and battleship soldiers.
But the domineering rise of Zhao Hai and his suppression of the Cultivators caused a new understanding about the strength of the Mage and Warrior path. Mages and Warriors in the Machine Field had their status elevated. To the higher-ups of the Machine Field, this wasn’t necessarily good.
The increase in status of Mages and Warriors would certainly have an effect on the mechs and battleships. This event would in turn affect the benefit chain that has been established. This wasn’t something that high-level people wanted to see.
Because of this, the higher-ups wanted Zhao Hai removed. As for Yuan and Liu Zhen, it couldn’t be said that they had been implicated by Zhao Hai. Yuan and Liu Zhen had too much of an influence in the Lock Mountain Range. Although the two only had Core Formation strength, their prestige matches up to Nascent Soul Experts. Such power threatened the control of the higher-ups on the Lock Mountain Range. Therefore, they also thought of removing the two.
With this thought in mind, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but let out a long breath. To be honest, he didn’t like the approach of the higher-ups. They used self-destructive methods to suppress the Mages and Warriors of the realm. And their recent action had gone too far.
However, Zhao Hai didn’t think about how to deal with these people. In fact, he couldn’t. The relationship of the Machine Field’s higher-ups was very complicated. It wasn’t only one or two connections. Instead, it was an interconnected net of influences and families. It would be very hard to deal with them all and killing people wasn’t enough. Zhao Hai needed to slowly cultivate his own forces and then change the status of the Mages and Warriors bit by bit.
But the action of the Machine Field’s higher-ups gave Zhao Hai an opportunity. He can use this opportunity to win over people. As long as he wins over the core members of Great Families in the Six Realms Battlefield, his future actions would become more convenient.
Laura looked at Zhao Hai and asked, “Brother Hai? What are you thinking about?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Don’t worry about it. Let’s take our time. We can use this opportunity to make more contact with the people in the Lock Mountain Range and develop our influence. As long as we have enough influence, even the higher-ups wouldn’t be able to touch us.”
Laura nodded and didn’t say anything. The Machine Field’s situation was too complex. Almost all Great Families and Powers in the realm had their hands in the benefit chain of mechs and battleships. Zhao Hai’s quest to increase the status of Mages and Warriors was almost equal to becoming an enemy of the entire realm. It wasn’t an easy task.
With his current situation, Zhao Hai doesn’t have the strength to fight against the Machine Field. His enemies right now were the Cultivators, the Demons, and the Sprites. If the Machine Field was added, then he would have been enemies with the majority of the six realms. This wasn’t something that Zhao Hai wanted to see.
Therefore, what Zhao Hai needed to do now was not to be too overboard in developing his power. He needed to keep down and slowly wait.
He can show his strength to Yuan and Liu Zhen as well as slowly cultivate his contacts. However, he couldn’t be too overboard in developing his influence. If others were to see that he was developing too fast, then they might make another move.
Laura smiled and said, “Want to see the state of Yalei 2? The development is going very well. The environment has also been greatly improved. Elven trees have also been moved. The spiritual density of the planet is now almost the same as the Machine Field. People could now live there comfortably.”
As she said that, Laura changed the screen’s image to Yalei 2. There weren’t many improvements to the place. Besides the Elven trees, there were some grasses planted as well as flowers. There were also some fruit trees planted by Laura. There’s also bread trees and bamboo rice.
Animals were also bred on the planet. Naturally, these animals weren’t high-level beasts. They were only farm animals that can be used for meat.
Although there weren’t anything good in Yalei 2 now, its improvement can be clearly seen. It was now suitable for habitation. At this point, Yalei 2 can be considered as a base.
Zhao Hai nodded. Then Lizzy who was beside them changed the image on the screen and then pointed to a place and said, “We’re planning on building a city here. It doesn’t need to be big. However, all the facilities needed to be complete. And in order to keep in touch with the Machine Field, several large stations needed to be set up. These will help us receive and transmit signals from the Machine Field’s transmitter formations. This way, Yalei 2 can keep up-to-date with the Machine Field.”
This was very important. Yalei 2 now has a very good environment. But to attract people to migrate here, the most important thing was to keep a connection with the Machine Field. Yalei 2 needed to know all of the events in the realm. At the same time, people could also find out about what was happening in Yalei 2.
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Besides these signal stations, we also need several planets and establish transmission formations. Once the planet develops later on, it’s impossible for me to come out all the time to transport people. And I may not have the time.”
Everyone nodded. Then Zhao Hai turned to Margaret and said, “Margaret, I’ll have to leave this matter to you. It’s best if you discuss it with Camp Lord and Uncle. It doesn’t need to be a lot. But there must be no fewer than five transmission formations.”
Margaret nodded and said, “Alright, you can leave this to me. However, I think it’s not enough to arrange formations on planets. We also have to place formations outside civilized planets like the Rainbow Meteorite Field and the Endless Desert. This way, Yalei 2 won’t be locked in with the Machine Field. At the same time, we can also cover the existence of our island base.”
Zhao Hai nodded, “It’s good to leave two back roads. I will deal with the transmission formations in the Rainbow Meteorite Field and the Endless Desert. You don’t need to worry about it.”
Margaret nodded. Then at this time, Megan chimed in, “We still have one other problem to solve. We need people. Brother Hai, in addition to Uncle Lu and the others, we need other people to move in. However, there are very few people in the Machine Field that would like to move to Yalei 2. It’s better if we can find some Ascenders to move in.”
Zhao Hai knit his brows and said, “I’m afraid this won’t be easy. Once they ascend, the Ascenders would immediately be pulled over by families into their External Halls. Only a few people could move to Yalei 2. But if it really isn’t possible, we can move people out of the Space.”
Laura frowned and said, “I think we shouldn’t do that. After all, people inside the Space and those outside are different. Moreover, the Machine Field will certainly pay attention to Yalei 2. If they discover that there are a lot of people on the planet despite only having a few immigrants, then they will certainly suspect something.”
At this time, Margaret smiled and said, “Actually, this isn’t very hard to solve. Not all Ascenders are happy with their current state. And there are also Ascenders that weren’t doing very well in their own External Halls. Some of them are even regarded as burdens to their families. If we can move these people to Yalei 2, then I believe the families wouldn’t object. They may even welcome the idea with enthusiasm.”
Margaret’s words immediately reminded Zhao Hai about old men like Barlett and the others. After they ascended, they weren’t able to quickly learn Magic Theory. Even if such people joined the External Halls, they wouldn’t have any fighting capability. Besides the Ashley Family that would give them jobs, other families would even send them to their deaths. For these families, these old Ascenders were a burden. Now that Zhao Hai was willing to take them, these families should be glad.
