Chapter 394: Divine Wood, Iron Hammer, Great Lush
Lin Yuan felt the Moon Empress’ hand rubbing on his head. Her warm and slender fingers were helping him to tidy up his fringe that the wind had blown before entering the inner palace.
He couldn’t help but recall that his mother would always help him tidy up his fringe like this when he was young.
His hair was extremely soft for some reason. When the wind blew a little, the hair in front of his forehead would become messy.
However, he would not look blowsy even if his fringe was blown messy by the wind. Instead, there was an unruly handsomeness, and it would make him appear to be a few years younger.
As a transmigrator, Lin Yuan already had an adult soul from birth in this lifetime, with more than 20 years of memories of his previous life. The bits and pieces of his early childhood were the most precious memories sealed in his heart.
Lin Yuan had been bearing the burden of everything alone since the death of his parents, and no one had ever helped to tidy up his hair. However, it was once again ruffled again by someone. He only felt his eyes heat up a little.
As for what his master had said about whether he wanted to go outside the federation to absorb the resources he needed and develop his own faction as well as to train, he wanted to do so.
However, Lin Yuan had never set foot in the world outside the Radiance Federation. Although it wasn’t to the point that he knew nothing about the world outside the federation, what he knew was from the Moon Empress’ common sense questions that they had discussed during the question-and-answer session.
Lin Yuan thought that with the Mother of Bloodbath, a Suzerain/Myth II expert, and Endless Summer, a Suzerain/Myth III expert, he had the qualification to set foot in the world outside the Radiance Federation in terms of martial force.
The Mother of Bloodbath and Endless Summer were comparable to emperor-class experts in terms of strength. In terms of resources, Lin Yuan had control over high-quality Bronze feys. As long as there were spirit qi professionals, high-quality Bronze feys would be the most scarce resources.
Lin Yuan’s private faction was just starting now. If it could step outside of the Radiance Federation for development, it would be akin to Lin Yuan being able to eat a huge double-sided cake.
The world outside of the Radiance Federation gave Lin Yuan a platform to grow his ambition at will without worries. This was only good for the development of Lin Yuan’s private faction, the Sky City, and nothing bad.
Lin Yuan had always believed in a saying, “Stand up straight where you can see because you stand still where you can’t.”
If Sky City, a cloud hanging in the sky, wanted to be stable, it needed to be supported by more resources and martial force. Since this was the place he yearned for, he naturally had to go through trials and hardships.
Thus, Lin Yuan said seriously and firmly, “Master, I want to open a space tunnel to go to the world outside of the Radiance Federation.”
Τhe smile on the Moon Empress’ face grew even bigger.
“You’ve made the right decision. Only when you make your way into the world outside the Radiance Federation will you know how a real faction should really develop.
“The prestige of a faction is fought out, while the growth of a faction will just be an empty shell in the end if it’s not washed in blood.”
Although the Moon Empress had a smile on her face, she spoke very seriously, and Lin Yuan could feel her guidance and teaching from her words.
Before Lin Yuan could speak, the Moon Empress added, “The Radiance Federation has been full of beautiful mountains and rivers and is quiet and peaceful because it occupies a huge continent, one of the three major federations.
“On the other hand, it’s because the life-and-death struggle between spirit qi professionals within the Radiance Federation has never been encouraged.
“But the outside world is completely different. They fight for resources, and being badly bruised is par for the course.”
Lin Yuan naturally understood the Moon Empress’ words.
He had always known that this world was where strength was respected. Strength was fundamental. Without enough strength, one simply could not maintain the corresponding resources.
Lin Yuan had been accumulating resources and increasing his strength with these resources. The faction’s development would certainly not stop at its current stability.
Lin Yuan had begun to plan to forge his own sword in his hands and then sharpen it step by step. However, his plan of white-clothed followers had just begun, so the forging materials were not yet ready.
Since Lin Yuan had already planned to connect the space tunnel from his mansion to the world outside the Radiance Federation, he would need to know the connected location on the other side of the space tunnel very well.
“Master, you said before that the energy contained in the Hollow Crystal Mother Shellfish could support the opening of the space tunnel to the nearest federation.
“What’s the situation of that nearest federation?”
Since Lin Yuan wanted to develop his faction and train himself in the world outside the Radiance Federation, the other side of the space tunnel certainly couldn’t be opened in a deserted place. Instead of that, he would rather just burrow into the deep forests of the Radiance Federation.
Hence, Lin Yuan was destined to open the other side of the space tunnel at the nearest federation.
However, whether it should be developed secretly in a remote place from the city or openly in the city would require him to understand the situation before making a decision.
As Lin Yuan’s master, what the Moon Empress liked to see most was Lin Yuan’s inquisitive expression. Every time she saw him like that, she always wanted to tell him everything she knew in detail.
“The nearest federation is separated from the Radiance Federation by a vast sea, on another continent called the Divine Wood Federation.
“However, the Divine Wood Federation is unlike the Radiance Federation that dominates a continent by itself. The Divine Wood Federation, Iron Hammer Federation, and the Great Lush Federation share the resources of a continent together.
“The spatial shell crystals that came off the Hollow Crystal Mother Shellfish are a bit small. Otherwise, you could’ve chosen between the Divine Wood Federation and the Iron Hammer Federation.”
The Moon Empress was obviously thinking about something as she spoke. When Mystic Moon saw that, he broke out in a sweat. If the Moon Empress went to find Ostrich Logistics’ Spacetime Elder for the Hollow Crystal Mother Shellfish’s shells, he might get depressed again and isolate himself.
It was Lin Yuan’s first time hearing about the Divine Wood Federation, the Iron Hammer Federation, and the Great Lush Federation. However, as a healing-type spirit qi professional that preferred output, his hasty blood could be seen. His blood was already boiling at this moment.
