Chapter 1528 – Handover
Time passed and it has been two years since the last battle between the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Fireweaver Race. In the past two years, the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield had been calm. It seems like the battlefield returned to its original state.
The territory of the Hundred Treasures has grown larger. The subordinates under their protection had also increased. The realm’s overall strength has risen. The Hundred Treasures Realm has already become a top powerhouse in the battlefield. Their future was looking bright.
The other realms didn’t dare offend the Hundred Treasures Realm. At the same time, the Fireweavers have been behaving themselves. Zhao Hai knew that Fireweavers were behaving themselves because they would risk being attacked by all high-grade realms if they dared to make a move. And once this happens, the other four Great Realms would definitely try to shake the foundations of the Fireweaver Race.
Being able to become one of the five Great Realms, the Fireweavers certainly weren’t simple. They knew how to attack and retreat. The last time, they only made a move because they saw an opportunity. And when they saw their odds going bad, they decidedly withdrew. To be honest, Zhao Hai admired this aspect of the Fireweaver Race.
However, the more the Fireweavers were like this, the more wary Zhao Hai was. Such enemies were bound to be very dangerous. Right now, the five Great Realms were in an equilibrium. None of them wanted to make a huge move right now. And now that the Hundred Treasures Realm had become more powerful, it was almost impossible for the Fireweavers to make a move on them. In the meantime, the Hundred Treasures Realm wasn’t in any danger.
On the other hand, Zhao Hai’s investigation towards the Hundred Treasures Realm’s background wasn’t doing well. However, he was now certain that the Hundred Treasures Realm had someone behind it.
No matter what, it seems like the Hundred Treasures Realm’s backer didn’t care too much about the realm’s affairs. They didn’t do anything despite knowing that the Giant Spirit Realm and the Fireweaver Race were ganging up on the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Zhao Hai found some clues on ancient scrolls of the Hundred Treasures Realm. When he began looking for clues, he wasn’t able to find anything because of the long-term feud between the Hundred Treasures Realm and the Giant Spirit Realm. Even so, the records he found were very ominous, causing Zhao Hai to be suspicious. However, this wasn’t the time to be anxious. Zhao Hai felt that he would find proper clues sooner or later.
In the past two years, Zhao Hai rarely went to the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. Sometimes he would visit Yan Planet. Yan Planet had already been listed as a forbidden land by Mu Yao and the others. It was now impossible to treat the planet as a garbage dump. Mu Yao and the others also assigned people to guard the planet. Naturally, waste materials were still being sent over to the planet.
Zhao Hai went to Yan Planet in order to recycle the waste materials being sent. But normally, he stayed inside Bluetree Planet in order to look after the children. He wanted to train these children to become his loyal subordinates.
Despite having an abundance of resources, Zhao Hai actually has very few people to use it on. Now that he has the opportunity, he naturally wouldn’t just let it go.
Although the Hundred Treasures Realm looks calm, it was in fact divided into factions. For now, the strongest was Mu Yao’s faction. And because of Mu Yao’s connection with Zhao Hai, he was grouped up with them. The troubles of the Hundred Treasures Realm would begin from here.
Because of this, the most important thing for Zhao Hai was to establish his own influence. As long as he grows his strength, nobody would dare make a move on him.
Additionally, Zhao Hai has insurance for himself, and that was his status as Refining Grandmaster. He can recycle waste materials into useful resources. As long as he held this skill, nobody from the Hundred Treasures Realm would dare offend him.
Actually, Zhao Hai was most happy about the children. The children have been learning for two years now. In the past two years, Zhao Hai was very dedicated to teaching the children. At the same time, the children were also very competitive. More than a thousand of them were already close to the Foundation Establishment Stage while the worst of them was approaching the peak of Body Refining.
Moreover, the children’s innate talents were beginning to show. Some of the children had skills regarding medicinal plants, some were good at refining. Zhao Hai made sure to develop these talents.
If Zhao Hai wants to develop his power, then it’s impossible to rely on cultivation alone. Therefore, Zhao Hai didn’t only focus on fostering the cultivation of the children, but he went along with their aptitude. In any case, these children were now his servants and disciples in the future. They would all follow his surname, so he can teach them as he wants.
In the past two days, the Hundred Treasures Realm also built academies on other planets. Moreover, they followed the method that Zhao Hai suggested. So far, the academies were doing well. Once the children reached the Foundation Establishment stage, they would be sent back to their respective planets to follow their master. Although the effect wasn’t as good as Zhao Hai’s academy, it was still much better to their previous system.
Needless to say, Zhao Hai made a great achievement this time. Although a lot of children were still below the Foundation Establishment Stage, the proportion that had broken through was still much more than before. Even if these children couldn’t enter the Transcending Tribulation Stage, as long as they reach the Nascent Soul Stage, they can become very good teachers. In turn, this would benefit the future development of the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Zhao Hai also learned a lot about the Hundred Treasures Realm in the past two years. The Hundred Treasures Realm seen on the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield was not the real Hundred Treasures Realm. The realm was indeed one of the top existences of the battlefield. Zhao Hai was now aware of the realm’s true face.
Because of the recent war, the Hundred Treasures Realm were able to gain a lot of good things. At the very least, the Hundred Treasures Realm can now make Giant Spirit Treasures Ships on their own. They can also make rifles. These two were very beneficial to the future of the realm.
In the past two years, Mu Yao would also return to the realm from time to time to take a look, the same was true for Tang Jie and the others. Mu Yu’s status in the Hundred Treasures Realm was now very high. After the war, Mu Yu’s military exploits, adding to his formidable background, made it impossible for other people to make a move on him.
This day, the children in Zhao Hai’s Bluetree Academy were attending their lessons. The students were divided into classes. These classes weren’t decided based on the student’s aptitude, but instead by what they were interested in. For example. There were physical training classes, refining classes, alchemy classes, spearmanship classes, and many others.
At this point, the teachers in the academy have been changed into high-level Undead. These were Undead in the Transcending Tribulation Stage and above. In addition to providing the children with better education, Zhao Hai also had the Undead teach in order to train them. It must be known that imparting knowledge wasn’t an easy matter.
At this time, a flash of white light appeared on the transmission formation. After that, three people could be seen. Zhao Hai turned to look and saw that it was Mu Yu, Tang Jie, and Tang Wen.
Zhao Hai immediately flew over and greeted them, “Brothers, why did you come over? Did something happen?”
Mu Yu smiled and said, “We’re here to ask you for a drink.”
Zhao Hai laughed, then he led the three towards his residence. After arriving, Laura and the others provided them with food and drinks. Mu Yu drank his liquor, then he sighed and said, “Little Hai, the reason we’re here is because we have something we need you for.”
Zhao Hai stared, then he asked, “What is it?”
Mu Yu forced a smile and said, “Little Hai, you should be aware that there are countless realms in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. The location is also quite strange. Facing the sea. The Hundred Treasures Realm surrounded by the five Great Realms. It’s now impossible to increase our territory. As for the seas, it is surrounded by a poisonous purple fog as well as the black clouds overhead. Even if we went to the sea, it’s still impossible. However, we haven’t given up yet. After several expeditions, we discovered that the purple fog and the dark clouds weaken every 50 years. Because of this, the realm sends young people to scout the sea every 50 years. However, despite sending a lot of people, none of them had yet to return. These people have the same strength as you. But this didn’t stop the major realms from sending people every 50 years. The time to send people is approaching. However, nobody was willing to go because they knew that nobody was able to return alive from these expeditions. I came this time to tell you that Master is about to end his 100-year assignment in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield. He and the other elders will be replaced with another batch of Immortal Experts. This new batch of experts aren’t very friendly with Master. Me and Tang Jie aren’t in any danger since our Masters have already taken care of this for us. But as for you, Little Hai, I advise you to go into a close-door cultivation soon. Otherwise, people will assign you to explore the sea, compelling you to a dead end.”
Zhao Hai stared, he also understood the factional strife of the Hundred Treasures Realm in the past two years. However, this was the first time he heard of this matter. He couldn’t help but frown as he said, “They want to make a move on me? I have repeatedly gained achievements for the Hundred Treasures realm. Moreover, I can recycle waste materials into usable resources. No matter what their purpose is, they shouldn’t touch me, right?”
Mu Yu sighed and said, “Little Hai, every time the Immortal Experts in the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield gets rotated, a huge wave would ripple out in the Hundred Treasures Realm. Me, Little Jie, and Little Wen have Immortal Experts behind us, so nobody dared to deal with us. Otherwise, once our Master sits in the position, they would deal with the other party’s disciples. However, although you are now under Master Mu’s umbrella, you have no power behind you. The merits you made will also be counted on the Master’s faction, not on you. I’m afraid they will deal with you first. To them, your presence is a huge boost towards Master’s faction. You aren’t someone they can allow to exist for a long time. In their opinion, now that the Giant Spirit Realm has been driven out of the battlefield, the Hundred Treasures Realm’s biggest enemy is now gone. To the other party, losing you won’t be that big.”
