Chapter 26- Territory Upgrade
Cheng Yang didn’t only bring back food from Huimin Town, but also some wood. These wood took a great deal of time and effort to be brought back to the village, all of which relied on the warriors carrying them on their shoulders back.
Today they spent most of their energy on the wood, but even so, by nightfall they were only able to get about 40 sq. meters of wood.
And compared to the territory meager income, Cheng Yang’s harvest was very huge. His total power value had reached 1,439 points, and even if he fully used four times cultivation speed for the whole night, nor would his power value go below 1,000 points.
Presently, the territory power value had reached more than 800 points, 200 of which were from the 20 new transfers repaying their owed amount, and the rest were from Niu Bing and Lee groups killing the enchanted beasts around the village.
Now the power value was only short of 150 points for the territory to upgrade, and all Cheng Yang can do was wait, there was no other way.
Immediately, Cheng Yang took his team out of the village. Although the sky had darkened, but with the help of torches they were able to go out and kill enchanted beast. Now they had a priest in their team, and even if occasionally one or two monster sneak- attacked, they would not be harmed.
At this time, not only Cheng Yang’s team was out of the village, but also two other teams. For the remaining two team, in addition to one guarding the station, the other was in cultivation.
Four hours later, Cheng Yang returned to the station, and open the territory properties panel. He suddenly discovered the territory power value has exceeded 1,000 points. At this time, Cheng Yang couldn’t help but burst in excitement, even in his past life, he never heard of anyone upgrading a field station to level 2 in two days.
Territory from one level to the second level, after all, is not based on the number of territories, but according to the territory efficiency in obtaining power value. Now Luo Feng village not only had a high spawn of enchanted beast around, but also had the Scarlet Church instance. These two factors combined contributed to the village reaching level 2 in two days.
Cheng Yang without hesitation chose to upgrade the territory.
Suddenly, a voice sounded in his mind: Congratulation, your territory Luo Feng Village has successfully upgrade to level 2, please view the territory property.
Compared to when Cheng Yang first occupied Luo Feng Village, this upgrade didn’t have any miraculous light screens appeared, because this time the buildings were not automatically built.
Cheng Yang immediately opened the territory property from the altar.
After Luo Feng village has upgraded, the properties panel increased in complexity, and the buildings that could be built also increased a lot. Apart from the level 2 wall and level 2 residence, all the other buildings had to be built. Looking at the amount of wood required for each building, Cheng Yang had a bit of a headache.
Fortunately, he could now create the woodworking room. After the woodworking room was built, people could go inside and learn the logging profession. Logging tools can also be purchased in here.
For this second upgrade, Cheng Yang was looking forward to the five buildings the most. Their importance were not less than the profession statues. The territory transfers could not only buy equipment and pills here, but could also learn a craft.
Whether it was the main city or field stations occupied by human, the shops would mostly sell the most common items. In order to get the good stuff, you had to rely on people to make it. Crafting was the same as the main profession level, it also had level restriction, but as long as a certain level was reached, coupled with good materials, you could create high-quality equipment.
In his last world when he was in Luo Feng Village, Cheng Yang knew a forger that was able to create iron grade equipment for apprentice order transfers, he was able to receive all the limelight in Luo Feng Village. Except for those occupiers outside of Luo Feng Village, everyone who saw him show him nothing but politeness and respect.
Practicing a craft was not easy, because it would take a lot of energy and materials, while also required enough patience. So not everyone could become a successful crafter.
Cheng Yang now had the opportunity to construct these shops, being one step ahead of the others in training all types of crafter. This would allow Luo Feng village transfers strength to rise.
Of course, the role of these stores weren’t so simple, their presence would cause a business model to appear in the station. Transactions between people would once again flourish. In addition, as long as the transactions occurred within the territory, the territory would be automatically charged 5% of the power value as tax. Including shops that auto-sold ordinary equipment and pills were of no exception.
These taxes did not go to the Lord, but would be converted into territory power value.
As a Lord he also had some benefits, now in the Lord privilege page appeared a new function, which was known as Shiyi.
As long as there was some understanding of ancient history known, Shiyi was a way of taxing the fief residents in a way to gain personal wealth. But Shiyi was not just that, on one hand Cheng Yang was able to extract a portion of the territory earning as his own, while on the other hand, he could appoint officials and pay them for their service.
But Luo Feng station was now nothing more than a village, but also only a level 2 village, so Cheng Yang’s official appointment was not much, there were only three places available. Respectively, they were responsible for the management of the transfers, as well as dealing with the store management, and lastly responsible for the protection of the lord Cheng Yang.
These three officers in addition to Cheng Yang would have access to the related properties panel, while also receiving an additional small pay. The wage was set up by Cheng Yang himself. But there was an upper limit, a maximum of 10 points of power value per day.
Cheng Yang extraction of tax per day seemed to be a bit high, he could extract every individual power value by 5%. Take for instance the current situation, it’s equivalent to Cheng Yang receiving an addition of 100 points of power value every day. And with the increase in killing speed, he would earn more power value.
But after this upgrade, in order to upgrade the territory into a level 3 village might not be so easy. First, the upgrade of the four profession statues would takes a long time, plus the need to obtain 10,000 points of territory power value were not what the territory could get in a short time period.
Cheng Yang had already been very satisfactory with this progress, because the territory upgrade speed for them was not slow. Perhaps due to obtaining the Scarlet Church instance, it had greatly improved the speed of obtaining power value. If other individuals or forces occupied a field station in the future, their speed couldn’t be compared with his territory.
Cheng Yang opened up the Shiyi authority, in which the officials are set up. There was no doubt that Lee Wanshan would be set in charge of the transfers, who let his talent be related to it. Now the profession statues transfer quota could be increased by 3%, and waited until after his strength improve, this advantage would be even more powerful.
