Chapter 1561 – Establishing The Formation
Zhao Hai held a jade sword message in his hand as he turned to Mu Yu and said, “They’re finally beginning to act. It seems like we have to keep things moving here.”
Mu Yu smiled faintly and said, “It’s been several days since the Mi Clan left. From what it looks, the other islands would no longer send people. We should begin setting up your formation so that we can be safe. Maser also said that this will become our headquarters if the plan fails. What do you think of this?”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Now I want to see if the people of the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield could also tame and use cloud beasts.”
Mu Yu stared, then his eyes shone as he nodded and said, “Right, right, I forgot about this. If we can tame cloud beasts, then we can be like the people of the Cloudsea Territory. We would be able to stay in the sea of clouds for a few days without our strength being affected. By the way, I forgot to ask you, what’s with Li Jiang and Zhe Jun’s cloud beasts? Did you really improve their beasts? How did you do it? Is it one of your abilities again?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “What ability, it’s because of this thing.” As he said that, Zhao Hai turned his hand and took out a pill. It was a white pill that seems to emit mist intermittently.
Mu Yu looked at Zhao Hai and asked, “Is this a pill? You gave these to the cloud beasts?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Correct. This is a pill. However, this isn’t any ordinary pill. To make it, I used herbs from the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield as well as refined white clouds. This pill doesn’t have any other uses and it would harm cultivators if they ate it. However, its benefits towards cloud beasts are very good. I obtained this from Guo Ling. He was chased down because of his research of this pill. After I got the formula, I used herbs from the Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield to complete it.”
What Zhao Hai said was both true and false. This pill could truly enhance cloud beasts, but it falls short compared to when Zhao Hai did it. This pill was something produced by the Space’s scanner and didn’t have any relationship with Guo Ling. Guo Ling wasn’t chased down because of this. But because of this, Mu Yu couldn’t verify if what Zhao Hai said was true or not.
Mu Yu received the pill and carefully examined it. He looked at Zhao Hai and said, “How did you know that this will be effective for cloud beasts?”
Zhao Hai replied, “Brother Mu, I had been drifting on the sea for so long, I could catch cloud beasts and experiment on them. After poisoning hundreds of cloud beasts, I was finally able to complete this pill.”
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yu couldn’t help but stare, then he laughed and said, “So it’s that. Hahaha. You really like to toss about. But this is good. It means that we would have something to win people over.”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Don’t tell others about this pill. It’s better if it remains a mystery. This will make them think even more.”
Mu Yu nodded. Then suddenly he frowned and said, “So what do we do about the cloud beasts? We currently have no cloud beasts in hand. How can we know if this cloud beast could be used by our people?”
Zhao Hai looked at Mu Yu, then he chuckled and said, “Brother Mu, did you stay here for too long that your brain has turned into mist? Don’t forget, we can still send people on missions. Although we have the formation, that doesn’t mean that the people cannot go out. The people in the village are happy with getting cloud beasts, after all, they are familiar with this job.”
Mu Yu tapped his head as he smiled bitterly and said, “I would have forgotten if you didn’t tell me. But when are you going to put up the formation? Without the formation, I feel very on edge.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “I already issued an order to check the surrounding islands. If the realms still have no intention to come over and investigate, then we can immediately establish the formation. If they want to come over, then we’ll have to wait until they leave.”
Mu Yu nodded, “Only when the formation is set up will this island truly become ours. From the message just now, it’s clear that the realm places great importance to the Hidden Cloud village. We need to make sure to prepare this place well.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “The Hidden Cloud Village is on the right track. What we need to do is really simple. We’ll rearrange the residences so that we can make room for growing cloud rice and cloud herbs. Although we don’t have any cloud herbs on hand right now, we can take ordinary herbs from the realm and try to plant them here. Wouldn’t it be better if we grow something in this place?”
Zhao Hai wasn’t speaking nonsense. He tried to plant ordinary herbs to the Space’s whitecloud island and it unexpectedly succeeded. However, the herbs also changed and became cloud-like. Regardless, the efficacy of the herbs didn’t decrease and it improved instead.”
Mu Yu thought about it and said, “Alright, let’s do that. So how should we arrange the residences? Do you have a plan?”
Zhao Hai took out a piece of paper as he smiled and said, “I had Laura and the others make it. Take a look. If you like it, we’ll do it according to this plan.”
Mu Yu chuckled and said, “Since it’s made by Laura and the others, it should be enough.” As he said that, he took the paper that Zhao hai handed to him. When he looked at the plan, Mu Yu couldn’t help but stare. Then as he went on, he nodded. The houses in this plan were arranged in a special way. The way the houses were arranged followed the flow of a formation. As long as the houses were arranged in this way, then it would become a big spirit gathering formation. In the middle of this formation was an open area where plants could be cultivated.
Mu Yu looked at Zhao Hai and said, “This is a very good plan. Let’s do it according to this. When should we begin?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “Let’s wait a couple of days as everyone comes back. After we set up the formation, we can ask them to move the houses.”
Zhao Hai wasn’t speaking nonsense. The cloud houses were very special since they’re made of refined white clouds. They can’t leave whitecloud islands but they could be easily moved. It can even float in mid-air. And as long as they’re placed, they would not move. And for those in mid-air, they wouldn’t fall.
Because of this, Zhao Hai was fine with moving the houses. It was quite normal to move houses in the Cloudsea Territory.
Mu Yu nodded and then sighed as he said, “The realm is about to send people against the Ghost Spirit Realm, yet we can’t participate. It’s really boring.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “You can’t be sure about that. Once we deal with the matters in the Hidden Cloud Village, we can return. When the time comes, we can deal with the Ghost Spirit Realm with our own hands.”
Mu Yu nodded, “There’s also that. Those fellows from the Ghost Spirit Realm don’t know what’s good for them. They dared to attack you and even had the gall to ask for an explanation from the realm. I wouldn’t be able to get this foul air out of my lungs if I don’t fight them.”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, “To be honest, I really don’t care about the Ghost Spirit Realm. With the other realms joining together, the fall of the Ghost Spirit Realm is inevitable. What I’m worried about are the Fireweavers. They are vengeful and wouldn’t just let go of a loss. If they want to get back at us, then the Ghost Spirit Realm is a great opportunity to do so.”
Zhao Hai said these things because he discovered that the Fireweavers have been making some moves lately. They’re building up their military as though they were going to take action.
In the previous war, Zhao Hai put silver needles on some of the Fireweavers. This allowed him to know a little bit about the Fireweavers’ situation. To be honest, compared to the Fireweaver Race, the Hundred Treasures Realm was still a lot worse. If the Fireweavers attacked with all their strength, the Hundred Treasures Realm wouldn’t be able to stop them. Fortunately, the other Great Realms were pulling the Fireweaver Race’s legs, making them unable to use all of their resources against the Hundred Treasures Realm.
The Five Great Realms weren’t peaceful with each other. They constantly fought against each other, but not on a large scale. If the Fireweavers aggressively attacked the Hundred Treasures Realm, then the other Great Realms would definitely take action. The Fireweavers were also aware of this, so they only sent a fraction of their power when they fought against the Hundred Treasures Realm in the past.
But this time, the Fireweavers gathered an army of 10 thousand, ready to take action against the Hundred Treasures Realm. This army of 10 thousand from the Fireweavers equates to 30 thousand experts from another realm. This was because each expert had two beasts with them. And these two beasts were as strong as their masters. This Fireweaver Army wasn’t something to be underestimated.
What surprised Zhao Hai was the fact that he didn’t know where the Fireweavers received the information that the Hundred Treasures Realm was about to clash with the Ghost Spirit Realm. They wanted to use this opportunity to behead the Hundred Treasures Realm.
Since he didn’t know how the Fireweavers received the information, Zhao Hai could only remind Mu Yu about the possible dangers. He hoped that Mu Yu would latch on to this idea.
Hearing Zhao Hai, Mu Yu nodded and said, “The Fireweavers are scum. We need to be careful of them. Do you think they would dispatch troops this time?”
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, “I cannot say for sure. But I think we need to prepare in order to avoid losses when the time comes. Oh, those guys are back. Let’s see if we can begin establishing the formation.” As he said that, several people arrived. Zhao Hai and Mu Yu were talking inside their cloud house, so Zhao Hai had the newcomers come in. The group went in and gave a salute to Zhao Hai and Mu Yu.
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, “Stand up. So how is it? Will the other islands come over to investigate?” Actually, Zhao Hai knew that the other powers would no longer be sending people. This was because the Mi Clan already told them that there’s nothing wrong about the island. And with the Hidden Cloud Village being ignored by almost everyone, nobody wanted to come and check again.
The answers of those who came were the same. The other islands wouldn’t be sending people. After that, Zhao Hai rewarded them and then had them leave. Then Zhao Hai turned to Mu Yu and said, “Brother Mu, we can begin arranging the formation. You take the formation disk while I plant the formation flags.”
Mu Yu nodded. Zhao Hai waved his hand and took out a formation disk. This formation disk was white, flat, and shiny. It wasn’t very big at only a meter in diameter. Engraved on the disk were a variety of mysterious patterns. Among them were 36 circles connected in an array. It looked like a beautiful decoration.
Zhao Hai handed the disk to Mu Yu and said, “Every time I place a formation flag down, a red dot will light up. You just need to observe it for me.”
Mu Yu nodded and received the formation disk. Right after that, Zhao Hai left the Hidden Cloud Village and flew towards a predetermined area. The place Zhao Hai chose to place the formation flag was quite far from the Hidden Cloud Village, at a day’s distance of flying. But for Zhao Hai, this distance was nothing. In a flash, he arrived at the area and took out a formation flag.
The flag was entirely black with a height of 13 feet. The flag itself was triangular and had a huge star design in the middle.
Zhao Hai calculated the positions carefully. If it were a normal formation, it wouldn’t have needed so much attention. However, the formation that Zhao Hai set up this time was different.
Three years to search for a dragon but ten years to find its tail. In Feng Shui, this means that it was easier to find a dragon vein than to find a dragon’s cave. But Zhao Hai’s formation was much more complicated than Feng Shui. But compared to Feng Shui experts, Zhao Hai was much more formidable. Moreover, he can use the Space to check if the formation disk lit up. If the red light lit up, this meant that Zhao Hai was in position. It took less than two hours before Zhao Hai was able to find the correct location for the flag.
Zhao Hai saw through the Space that the formation disk in Mu Yu’s hand had lit up and knew that he was at the right place. However, he didn’t just put the flag there and flew away. Instead, he held the flag in his hand as he pulled back and screamed, “Ha!” as threw the flag down. A cloud of yellow light burst out from the flag for a moment before it disappeared into the star pattern. Then the flag disappeared among the mist, making people unable to sense its presence at all.
All of Zhao Hai’s actions were supplemented by Faith Power. If he wanted the formation to perform to its best, then it would need Faith Power. In the entire Ten-thousand Realm Battlefield, it may only be Zhao Hai who could do this. This was because faith power was included in the plan to establish the formation.
