Fey Evolution Merchant - Chapter 2829
Chapter 2829 Lin Yuan Becomes a Bloodian
When Genius used Linked Fate Protection, it could link its own fate and the fate of the cat-species lifeforms controlled by Master of Cats with fortune.
A lifeform’s fate and fortune were predetermined, and it did not differ much between different lifeforms.
Even the lifeform with the best fortune would only have slightly more luck than other lifeforms.
Lin Yuan’s Death Demon Concubine Beast had the ability to gather fortune. He could use Merciful Soul to sense the fortunes of other lifeforms.
This was proven during the sensing.
As Genius continued to evolve, the number of cat-species feys it could control using Master of Cats also increased.
After linking the fates and fortunes of so many cat-species lifeforms, it would form a network that protected Genius and all the cat-species lifeforms.
It was very difficult to use regular methods to break through such protection over fates and fortunes.
Moreover, under the protection of such a network of fate and fortune, the cat lifeforms’ conditions would be improved!
The cat-species lifeforms would even condense their fate into spiritual energy and channel it back into Genius as a means of increasing its store of spiritual energy
Spiritual energy was the base of all of Genius’ abilities.
When Genius’ store of spiritual energy increased, Memory Deduction, Spiritual Energy Expansion, Soul Permutation, and True Knowledge Analysis would all improve. Tail of Fate would also become stronger!
Lin Yuan was very satisfied with Genius’ evolution.
Newly evolved, Genius meowed and leaped into Lin Yuan’s arms.
Genius snuggled up to Lin Yuan for a moment before turning its blue eyes to him and saying in a child-like voice, “Yuan, now that my grade and quality have increased, I can also strengthen the entire army of Hundred Questions Beasts and all the cat-species feys!
“In your words, I might need to go into seclusion for some time. After this evolution, the army of Hundred Questions Beasts will be able to enormously increase their production and quality of resources!”
Lin Yuan reached out and massaged Genius’ small head. Without them noticing, Genius’ establishment had grown larger and larger!
It no longer clung to him like it used to when it was young. Rather, it did its best to produce resources and increase its power.
It went without saying that everything that Genius did was for Lin Yuan’s sake.
Lin Yuan had watched all of Genius’ changes. As a result of these changes and continuous growth, it was now able to stand on its own two feet!
Lin Yuan felt both glad and troubled by Genius’ changes.
Lin Yuan had felt this feeling during Chu Ci’s journey of growth.
“Go, Genius. If you have any needs, let me know immediately! Remember not to be too rushed or forceful while you’re nurturing the army of Hundred Questions Beasts and cats. Give them some space to grow on their own!”
Genius nodded seriously as it engraved Lin Yuan’s words into its mind.
“Yuan, speaking of needs, there is something I need! All the knowledge I had in the past was related to the main world. This knowledge isn’t enough to help me make accurate judgments in the Sky Beyond the Clouds. I need a large system from which I can absorb knowledge about the Sky Beyond the Clouds and perfect my knowledge bank of its structure!”
In truth, even without Genius saying this, Lin Yuan knew this from the moment he arrived at the Sky Beyond the Clouds.
Lin Yuan, an ordinary individual, owed his success in passing the Creation Master tests and attaining the status of a Class 2 Creation Master to Genius, ultimately capturing the attention of the Moon Empress!
When he first arrived at the marsh world and began exploring it, it was also through Genius that he gained an understanding of the marsh world’s situation.
It went without saying that Lin Yuan would use Genius’ ability to take control of the knowledge in the Sky Beyond the Clouds. Once Genius gained the knowledge, it would be equivalent to all of Sky City’s members gaining the knowledge.
“Genius, once I take control of the Lonely River, I will bring you all the documents and literature available here so you can use Connected Tails to acquire the memories of all the experts. The same will go for the species in the barren land!”
The King Blood Jackals should have gathered a fair amount of documents and literature.
Many of the species in the Sky Beyond the Clouds were highly intelligent, and they always kept records.
Nonetheless, the most comprehensive set of historical records would undoubtedly come from Honor Absent Palace.
Going forward, Lin Yuan would try to find a way to obtain a systematic collection of knowledge from Honor Absent Palace.
After he returned Genius to the Spirit Lock spatial zone, Lin Yuan received a message from the Moon Empress.
Culture was important in the Sky Beyond the Clouds. It was possible that mechanical civilizations had lived there tens of epochs ago. But now, any trace of such a civilization had long vanished.
The Sky Beyond the Clouds did not have anything that resembled a phone.
Items that could be used for communication were not common in the Sky Beyond the Clouds. They were only attainable by lifeforms that had reached a certain level.
In terms of the means of information transfer, the Sky Beyond the Clouds was rather behind the times.
However, the lifeforms in the Sky Beyond the Clouds all had different abilities, exclusive skills, and divine kingdom abilities. This was what made this world defined by martial force exceptionally beautiful.
The lifeforms that had transmission abilities were all recruited by various factions and enjoyed decent lives. However, information that was transmitted by lifeforms or feys that were used as tools did not have the same level of secrecy and information security that the Elemental Paper had.
[Moon Empress]: Little Yuan, there are now over 500 villages under Sky City’s control. The total population is close to 200,000,000. These people are all in similar states to the Iron Hammer Federation’s tribes. However, the Iron Hammer Federation’s tribes were all worshiping the Snow Celestial Mountain. But that’s not the case for these tribes. Their faith is very messy.
[Moon Empress]: I think that we should try to find a way to channel all the villagers’ faith towards a common target rather than trying to manage them systematically. I have thought it through, and I still think that it isn’t a good idea to gather the villagers together and direct their faith toward different targets!
[Moon Empress]: I’m not saying that it’s impossible, but it would require too high of a cost and manpower. Sky City doesn’t have so many people to spare!
It was said that older people had more experience and capabilities. The Moon Empress had taken over the Radiance Federation right before the dead spirits crisis broke out. She had managed to keep the Radiance Federation running in perfect order even during the most perilous times.
After the dead spirits crisis ended, the Moon Empress, who started from running the Radiance Federation, began managing and saving the entire main world.
The Moon Empress’ abilities were not something that Su Yiren and Wen Yu could replicate or compete with.
When it came to matters concerning the governance of federations, the Moon Empress had far more foresight and experience than Lin Yuan.
The Moon Empress rarely approached him about issues with development. Once she did, it meant that she had noticed issues with the present strategies.
Lin Yuan carefully ruminated over the Moon Empress’ words. It did not take him long to realize the problem with his plan.
Faith was a very personal matter and was highly exclusive.
The Moon Empress had used the Iron Hammer Federation as an example and mentioned that its tribes had dedicated their faith to the Snow Celestial Mountain’s magical spirit. Their shared faith prevented them from fighting each other to the death even when resources were lacking.
If there had been two or three targets for faith in the Iron Hammer Federation, the federation would have devolved into chaos long ago.
The population of these hundreds of villages could not be compared to the population of the Iron Hammer Federation! It was only the equivalent of the population of a few Platinum tribes.
However, Sky City had too many members who had the abilities and the right to obtain faith power.
If faith power was disorganized, it would not lead to issues immediately but was a ticking bomb.
[Lin Yuan]: Master, it’s true that I didn’t think things through properly. Since that’s the case, what do you think about me gathering the tribes together before dividing them up again? Each tribe will then be ruled by one of Sky City’s main members. Then, the entire tribe will dedicate their faith power to Sky City’s representative members.
Lin Yuan had come up with a similar idea in the past, but he had been unwilling to send out all of Sky City’s main members. He preferred to keep them close to Sky City.
But now, it seemed he needed to dispatch everyone!
It was not to be said that there were no upsides to sending out all of Sky City’s main members. Doing so would train their capabilities.
After all, with the Ethereal Jellyfish’s tentacles, the main members could all return to Sky City’s headquarters with ease.
When the Moon Empress saw Lin Yuan’s reply, she knew that he had taken her advice and understood her deeper meaning.
[Moon Empress]: Little Yuan, we have only just arrived at the Sky Beyond the Clouds and are still in the exploratory phase. We don’t have to be afraid of making mistakes early on. We can just fix them later! Since you’ve made your decision, why don’t you tell Little Yu and Little Jie to collect more villages since they don’t have much to do? Otherwise, there won’t be enough people in each tribe.
Lin Yuan was very glad that the Moon Empress had been willing to come with him to the Sky Beyond the Clouds. With her there, he did not have to worry about anything he did!
After Lin Yuan sent out this order, he called for Su Yiren and Luo Lan and explained the situation to them.
Su Yiren and Luo Lan both expressed their agreement after Lin Yuan explained the new arrangement to them. This arrangement would make it much easier for them to carry out their management roles in the future!
While Lin Yuan was planning out Sky City’s affairs, the Dark Pufferfish were holding a meeting in response to Fan Lou’s news.
A bigshot from the Bloodians was about to visit the Dark Pufferfish. This was highly important to them.
Moreover, it was highly likely that that Bloodian was no ordinary member but a high-ranked one!
A visit from a high-ranked Bloodian meant that this trade was extremely important to the Bloodians.
The Dark Pufferfish were not afraid of the Bloodians.
So what if a high-ranked Bloodian arrived? Would they dare to attack all the Dark Pufferfish in the Lonely River?
If they did, the Bloodians would fail to obtain the Dark Pufferfish’s poison. After all, their poison could only be secreted by living Dark Pufferfish.
The Bloodians always placed their pride above everything.
Since they had sent the Dark Pufferfish an advance notice of a visit, the Dark Pufferfish could extend the necessary courtesies to them. They would all be present to greet the visiting Bloodian.
Naturally, they jumped into action as they waited for Lin Yuan’s visit.
At the agreed-upon time, Lin Yuan used the Body of All Spirits to combine the Bloodian bloodline with his own.
Almost instantly, Lin Yuan’s eyes and hair turned bloody red.
Among the Bloodians, red hair and red eyes were revered. Only members with extremely high-level bloodlines possessed such hair and eye color.
A high-ranking Bloodian had to be a higher Divine Kingdom expert at the very least.
With Lin Yuan’s current aura, he was slightly lacking to pass for a high-ranking Bloodian. But he could pass for an elite Bloodian!
Lin Yuan did not know about the lie that Fan Lou had told the Dark Pufferfish, but there was no need for him to know.
When Lin Yuan appeared and confirmed that all the Dark Pufferfish had gathered, Autumn and Winter would immediately step in to take control of all the Dark Pufferfish. At that point, he could do whatever he wanted with them!
After taking control of them and gaining an understanding of the Lonely River’s circumstances, Lin Yuan could swiftly take control of the entire Lonely River.
Although Lin Yuan had time and Sky City was in no rush to develop, developing Sky City rapidly upon their arrival would undoubtedly boost the members’ morale.
While Lin Yuan headed to the Lonely River, Spring and Summer made their way to the King Blood Jackals’ territory.
Spring and Summer would first take control of the King Blood Jackals.
Once Lin Yuan had full control of the Lonely River, he could move Sky Sea into the King Blood Jackals’ territory!
Lin Yuan quickly brought Autumn and Winter with him to the location where they agreed to meet Fan Lou.
Fan Lou was the only one waiting for Lin Yuan.
The Forbidden Wolf Team and Light Wind Wolves were still completely unaware and feeling stressed as they thought about how Fan Lou could possibly complete the trade.
When Fan Lou saw Lin Yuan looking like a genuine Bloodian, he was astonished.
With the posture of a servant, Fan Lou led Lin Yuan to the Dark Pufferfish’s palace where he would meet with their experts.
The Lonely River’s water was turbid, and there was a large amount of mud and plants in the water.
The Dark Pufferfish’s palace was rooted in the mud and appeared rather bare.
However, based on the decoration, Lin Yuan knew that the Dark Pufferfish had invested a lot of effort into building this palace.
The pearls of the large clams hidden among the rocks at the bottom of the river and colorful stones were used to decorate this palace.
At the door of the palace stood two lavishly dressed humanoid lifeforms.
Lin Yuan frowned slightly when he saw them.
