Chapter 395: Surging Tide in the Dark
When Mystic Moon saw that the Moon Empress was getting more and more abnormal, he hurriedly said, “Moon Empress, I heard that the Spacetime Elder has been depressed lately, and he usually doesn’t speak for a few days. He was very sick some time ago and has yet to get well now. What do you think?”
When the Moon Empress heard Mystic Moon’s words, she couldn’t help but feel a little awkward. She said, “The Spacetime Elder did not do things on the fly because his granddaughter insisted on becoming a courier.
“Did he become less manly six months ago? What does that old man’s illness have to do with me?”
After Mystic Moon’s reminder, the Moon Empress recalled how depressed the Spacetime Elder had looked all day long.
The Moon Empress dismissed the intention to go to the Spacetime Elder’s place for larger pieces of the Hollow Crystal Mother Shellfish’s spatial crystals.
Thus, the Moon Empress proceeded to explain the situation of the Divine Wood Federation to Lin Yuan, “The Divine Wood Federation is warm and humid all year round, which is particularly suitable for the growth of plant feys and spiritual ingredients. The entire Divine Wood Federation is considered a treasure land with abundant plant feys.
“There are a lot of fruits produced by the Divine Wood Federation’s various plant feys, so almost every household there makes wine from the spirit fruits.
“I don’t know if the environment influences the people in the Divine Wood Federation. They are quite fond of poetry, music, dancing, and even some literature.”
After listening to the Moon Empress’s introduction of the Divine Wood Federation, Lin Yuan began to think about how he should develop there.
The Moon Empress spoke again. “Although the Divine Wood Federation is a treasure land with very abundant plant feys, including rare and powerful plant feys, its Creation Masters are extremely scarce. There is not a single Class 5 Creation Master in the entire Divine Wood Federation, and the highest class of Creation Masters are only two pinnacle Class 4 Creation Masters.”
The Moon Empress paused slightly and suddenly changed the subject. “If you go to the Divine Wood Federation, don’t drink too much of the fruit wine there. Their wine is different from ours.
“The Divine Wood Federation’s wines have protein-rich insect-species feys’ innards added to them because they supposedly enhance the fruit wines’ flavor.”
Lin Yuan’s expression became complicated when he heard the Moon Empress’ words. Could the innards of insect-species feys really enhance a fruit wine’s flavor?
What kind of divine flavor did the insect-species feys’ bitter and fishy innards add to the sweet fruit wine?
Even if he was curious, he simply could not raise the interest to try it.
He suddenly felt that the people in the Divine Wood Federation had their ways. Was this considered the simplified cultural style of ‘having meat with wine’?
Then the Moon Empress said again, “Since the Divine Wood Federation lacks Creation Masters, the status of Creation Masters there is unimaginably high. The Divine Wood Federation is like an aristocracy.
“Even a Class 1 Creation Master is considered noble in the Divine Wood Federation.
“If a Class 1 Creation Master is walking on the street and feels offended by a poor person, they have the right to execute the poor person on the street at will.”
Lin Yuan immediately felt the bloody darkness behind the singing and dancing of the Divine Wood Federation.
Lin Yuan found the privilege of a Creation Master executing any poor person in the street at will unpleasant to the eye. He could totally imagine how high-class Creation Masters did what they wanted to in the Divine Wood Federation without restraint.
Since Creation Masters had a very high status in the Divine Wood Federation, Lin Yuan’s eyes lit up.
His faction was still in the beginning stage and needed a lot of spiritual ingredients. This Divine Wood Federation had a lot of plant feys. Wasn’t it a good place for him to collect spiritual ingredients?
But then Lin Yuan recalled the two other federations on the same continent as the Divine Wood Federation, so he asked her, “Master, what’s the relationship between the Iron Hammer Federation, Great Lush Federation, and the Divine Wood Federation?”
The Moon Empress suddenly looked at her palm and answered, “A world where strength is respected is inherently full of dangers everywhere. Although the three federations appear to be harmonious on the surface to outsiders, the open and vile strife among them is no less than the collision between the waves and rocks at sea.
“The Divine Wood Federation is warm and humid, so it naturally has plenty of food resources.
“The Iron Hammer Federation is the exact opposite. It’s dry, and almost their entire territory is dominated by undeveloped land.
“Even plants like the Needlepoint Iron Bark Trees, which can survive extremely well with one rain per year, also have a record of dying in the Iron Hammer Federation.
“On the other hand, the Iron Hammer Federation has very rich ore resources, so it has many metal resources to exchange for other resources.”
Lin Yuan was a little puzzled after listening to the Moon Empress’s words.
“According to what you’ve said, the Iron Hammer Federation and the Divine Wood Federation form a perfect equilibrium. It’s destined to have a large amount of material exchange between the two federations.
“In my opinion, these two federations should have an extremely close relationship. Why is there tension between them?”
The Moon Empress smiled faintly and did not directly answer his question. Instead, she asked, “What you said is true, but people always have ambition. The Iron Hammer Federation is stronger than the Divine Wood Federation in terms of martial force. If you were from the Iron Hammer Federation, what choice would you make when it came to a land with abundant resources?”
“Plunder!” Lin Yuan answered without even thinking about it.
“That’s right.” The Moon Empress gave him an appreciative glance. She then said, “The Iron Hammer Federation’s denizens are very tough and have tried to seize the Divine Wood Federation’s land many times, but the Divine Wood Federation resists tenaciously.
“But for this reason, the Divine Wood Federation had also paid a great price, so it hates the Iron Hammer Federation to the core.
“Therefore, the Divine Wood Federation won’t let their plant feys enter the Iron Hammer Federation to help improve their environment.
“At the same time, the Divine Wood Federation has always been eyeing the Iron Hammer Federation’s ores sources and has secretly attacked its ore base countless times.”
Lin Yuan immediately understood that this was a game being played between the two major federations. At that moment, the Moon Empress said, “You should be now thinking that these two federations should have reached the point of no return, but why do they still maintain the calmness on the surface, right?”
Lin Yuan nodded. He somewhat did not understand this.
“Then it’s time to talk about the third federation on that continent, the Great Lush Federation.”
