Being Chieftan at a Moe Tribe - Chapter 39
In more than ten seconds, the porcupine tribe, which had lost more than half of their members due to the two trap trenches, collapsed to the ground under the poison arrows.
Apart from an abnormally tall figure struggling to hold on in the center of the battlefield, no one was spared.
From the looks of it, this was the porcupine tribe leader who had not shown itself earlier.
It was quite strong, and even such a strong toxin wasn’t able to kill it. This had truly exceeded Fu Rui’s expectations.
However, even if it didn’t die, there was no way it would be a match for him.
With its robust figure, it would definitely be a great killing weapon on the battlefield. However, under Fu Rui’s scheme, it did not even have the chance to attack. It was truly quite sad.
However, Fu Rui did not show any mercy. He took the bone spear that Li had personally made and stepped forward. Then, he raised his hand and aimed the spear at its throat.
Just as he was about to end the porcupine leader’s life, the porcupine leader actually knelt on one knee and displayed a submissive posture.
Fu Rui couldn’t help but feel extremely surprised by this. He’d never imagined that a king, who was skilled in battle and had conquered more than half of the forest, was actually a spineless coward that feared death.
“How should I deal with it…”
Fu Rui was in a dilemma. Since the porcupine leader had already surrendered, it would be a pity if he didn’t make use of it.
Moreover, he was not sure of the location of the porcupine tribe. Fu Rui had been thinking about the treasures they had been plundering for a long time… Especially the Stone of Talent from the eagle-bodied tribe.
If the porcupine leader died too, these treasures might never be found again.
Fu Rui had no choice but to seek help from the system.
“Ding, the host can exchange for [Puppet Contract]. This extracts the target’s memory and forms a bloodline contract with the target. After signing the contract, the target cannot betray or do anything to harm the owner. Otherwise, the target will immediately be punished by the contract.”
“Such a good thing actually existed?”
Fu Rui couldn’t help but raise his eyebrows. “Let’s exchange my points for this!”
“Ding! Successfully changed for [Puppet Contract]. Consumed 15 Civilization Points!”
Fu Rui no longer cared about the loss of Civilization Points. After all, compared to these Civilization Points, the Stone of Talent was obviously more precious.
Fu Rui opened his hand and threw out the paper that recorded the Puppet Contract. Then, he raised his spear and poked the arm of the porcupine leader.
Dark red blood dripped onto the Puppet Contract, emitting a dazzling golden light.
The porcupine leader’s body shook, as if something had been extracted in an instant. Suddenly, it collapsed to the ground.
Fu Rui thought that it could not withstand the power of the contract and died, but he heaved a sigh of relief when he saw that its chest was still heaving.
“Not bad, not bad. It’s not a loss if it doesn’t die.”
Fu Rui still intended to use this porcupine leader to expand the territory of the beast-eared tribe. Thus, he could not waste it.
Looking at the ugly face of the porcupine leader, he suddenly had an idea.
“Since a porcupine is a thorny pig, you’ll be called Zhu Ganglie.”
The unconscious porcupine leader naturally had no objections. Thus, Fu Rui took it as a silent agreement.
Then, he retrieved the porcupine leader’s memories from the system interface.
After examining its memories, Fu Rui beamed with joy.
“There are actually so many things. You must have plundered many tribes over the years, right?”
Fu Rui sighed with emotion. Then, he became a little worried. “There are so many spoils of war, but their tribe is so far away. How can we move the items back to the village?”
He could only think of three types of transportation tools: ships, cars, and planes.
The porcupine tribe was not by the river, so boats and planes were eliminated from Fu Rui’s mind.
Thus, only cars were left.
“We can’t build cars, but if we can build wheels, it will save a lot of energy compared to bare-handed transportation.”
Fu Rui got to work as soon as he thought of this. He immediately ordered the beast-eared girls to clean up the battlefield and bury all the dead porcupines on the spot to prevent the plague from spreading.
Then, he returned to the village and gathered the other group of porcupines that had been killed by traps and spears. He dried and cured them, turning them into food reserves.
After working for half a day, Fu Rui finally had time to study how to make wheels.
It was not difficult in reality. When bark was removed from wood, the wood would form a standard circle. However, it was rather difficult to polish the wood.
Furthermore, he had to create bearings to stabilize the connecting rod on the wheel.
He remembered that he had encountered a natural rubber tree on his way back. It could be used to wrap the wooden wheel and make it more durable.
This time, Fu Rui had Li go over and collect the rubber for him.
Very quickly, the materials were ready and Fu Rui began to make wheels.
At the same time, he also exchanged for mortise and tenon technology from the Mall. This way, he could assemble the parts of a wooden cart without using a screw.
Fu Rui spent a few hours making eight wheels and assembling the necessary parts. Then, he rushed to assemble two carts before dinner.
“What is this?”
Not far away, Xi Xi asked Li, who was beside her. She had already seen Fu Rui tinkering with this thing for the entire afternoon. He did not even give her time to go up and talk to him.
“I don’t know either.”
“Shall we go over and ask?”
“Let’s wait a bit.” Li didn’t want to disturb Fu Rui while he was focused, so she prepared to observe the situation.
Meanwhile, Fu Rui had already started to continuously load things into the wooden cart. After moving back and forth five or six times, the load on the cards added up to at least 500 kilograms.
Seeing Li and Xi Xi looking in his direction, he waved at them.
“Come, let me introduce you to something good.”
Xi Xi and Li exchanged a glance before making their way over.
“Something good? What is it?”
“It’s a cart.”
Fu Rui’s lips curled into a smile. “It’s something that can greatly reduce the burden of transport. It can also be used as a means of transportation. It’s just that it needs to be improved. Now, it can only reduce the burden of transport.”
“Is it as amazing as you say?”
Xi Xi was skeptical.
Fu Rui asked with a smile, “Can you lift all the goods on this cart at once?”
“No,” Xi Xi replied bluntly.
“Then try pushing this cart now.”
Xi Xi rolled her eyes. She instinctively felt that it would not work, but she still did as Fu Rui said. “Is there a difference? There are so many things, I’m sure that…”
Then, the cart moved. Furthermore, Xi Xi felt that she hadn’t used her full strength yet.
She fell silent halfway through her sentence with a strange expression.
It was as if there was a hint of confusion in her surprise. She did not say anything for a long time.
“What’s wrong, Xixi? You aren’t dumbfounded, are you?”
Li was curious and came up to give the cart a push. Then, she was stunned.
After that, she raised her hands and looked at it suspiciously.
“When did I become so strong?”
