Everyone Has a Castle: I Choose Elves to be in My Army - Chapter 40
Time passed quickly.
By the time Gale snapped out of his reverie, it was almost night.
Through the window, he could see the sun that was about to descend into darkness.
Presumably, the blood moon was about to appear.
As time passed…
The Nightmare Team that was out hunting monsters returned to the castle.
Perhaps it was due to the lack of time, but the Nightmare Squad had hunted less than 300 monsters today.
This was very different from what Gale had expected.
Furthermore, the Origin Edges he obtained today were also lower than expected.
“Looks like the military building won’t be upgraded until tomorrow.”
After a day of hunting, Gale had obtained 58 Origin Edges.
He was still short of 52 edges to meet the upgrade requirements.
Gale’s thoughts raced.
“If the Nightmare Team is allowed to continue hunting monsters under the cover of night, then there is a chance that I can upgrade my military building today.”
“However, at night, the monsters’ strength will increase by at least three times.”
In the end, Gale decided not to take the risk.
After all, there would be more monsters at night as well, which included those higher levelled monsters as well.
If they were careless, the Nightmare Team might even die.
With the beast tide coming, Gale decided to give up on this idea for the time being.
At the very least, he would only consider hunting monsters at night after he had a Tier 9 battle unit under him.
If they were to go out now, it was likely that they might get injured or even killed.
“I’ll upgrade the military buildings tomorrow then.”
If everything went according to plan, he would be able to gather the necessary Origin Edges needed to upgrade his military buildings tomorrow.
Anyway, this one night was not a big deal.
After all, safety was the most important.
If his battle units died in an accident….
Although they could be revived, it would take some time. At this point before the beast tide, it was not worth the risk.
Next, Gale continued with his usual tasks.
He piled up the monster corpses and deconstructed them into food.
Then, it was placed on the [Trading Channel] according to the type of food.
The deconstructed materials were naturally given to Natalie, who was in the midst of forging equipment.
It was still the same saying. If he could create more equipment, Gale would be able to earn more resources.
The more they progressed, the more useful resources would become.
At that time, those Castle Lords with abundant resources would definitely be in high demand.
When he was done, Gale began to check the amount of resources he obtained from the sale of dragon meat.
In less than a day, the horned dragon meat on his shelves was sold out.
This also made Gale a fortune.
He obtained a total of 23,000 units of wood and 11,000 units of stone.
“Including the amount stored in the warehouse, I now have nearly 120,000 units of wood!”
Gale was also shocked by this number.
At this point, the amount of wood needed to upgrade the castle was more than sufficient.
The amount of stone he had was still a little off.
However, it should reach the required amount soon.
Gale had just put up nearly 4,000 units of food once more, enough to gather the stones needed for the castle’s upgrade.
At the same time.
One of the Night Demon guards had been appointed by Gale as the surveyor vanguard.
Its main responsibility was to search the hidden local organizations around the castle.
Because of its race, the Blood Moon could not affect it negatively.
The Night Demon Guard had wandered around this area for nearly two days but did not find any traces of native organizations.
However, just as he was about to give up, a few of the short gnomes that looked like mice appeared in the Night Demon Guard’s vision.
The Gnomes weaved through the bushes continuously.
Seeing this, the Night Demon Guard flapped its wings and followed.
He hid well and did not attract the attention of the Gnomes.
“Quickly tell this news to our lord!”
“Despicable humans, how dare they kill our people!”
A Gnome at the front let out a sharp sound.
Soon, the Gnomes entered a tree hole.
The Night Demon Guard stood at the top of the tree. After confirming that there was no one around, he jumped straight to the ground.
He carefully examined the tree hole, but the inside was completely dark, nothing could be seen.
The Night Demon Guard did not intend to take the risk. After making a mark, he prepared to go back and report to Gale.
This was also what Gale had taught him.
Right now, the safety of the battle units was paramount.
Gale would not allow any member of the Nightmare Squad to be harmed.
Just as the Night Demon Guard was about to leave…
Several cold arrows were nailed to the tree trunk without any warning.
The Night Demon Guard looked over and saw a team of more than 10 people.
These people were more like warriors.
These people held stone swords in their hands and carried a large bow on their backs.
“This must be a rare monster. I’ll definitely sell it for a good price if I capture it!”
As soon as he finished speaking, more than ten warriors surrounded the Night Demon guard.
Among them, the strongest was at Tier 5, and the weakest was at Tier 3.
The Night Demon Guard’s strength was at Tier 5, hence it showed no fear towards them.
The Night Demon Guard’s eyes turned from azure blue to blood red at this moment.
A black cross gradually appeared in its eyes.
At the same time, a demonic red flame appeared in his palm.
“Those who attack the Nightmare Team, die!”
The Night Demon Guard bared its sharp fangs and charged forward with flames.
The attack landed on the two warriors at the front.
No matter how these warriors resisted, the flames would not be extinguished.
They only burned even more fiercely!
In an instant, six warriors had died!
Amongst them was the Tier 5 warrior.
The Night Demon Guard looked at the retreating warriors but did not choose to let them go.
It was like an asura. Every attack represented the death of a life.
Not far away.
In an extremely lush bush, an ugly person was lying within it.
He witnessed everything in front of him as his face contorted.
Those were his battle units!
Even that Tier 5 warrior was actually not this monster’s match!
The young man muttered as he packed his things, preparing to run.
He didn’t even want to give them the order to escape.
Now, there was no time to care. If he didn’t run, he might be sent to meet Jesus.
The Night Demon guards had already killed all the warriors at this point, but he left one alive on purpose.
The reason for that was because he had noticed that someone had been observing everything that was happening.
“Let your loyal servant bring me to you.”
The Night Demon Guard looked at the fleeing warrior.
As long as he followed this warrior, he would definitely be able to find the person who was spying on them.
The young man ran towards his castle with all his might.
Finally, he returned to his castle.
The young man saw the familiar pale yellow halo and knew that he was safe.
So what if the monster outside was powerful?
During the protection period, he was invincible!
However, he did not know that danger had just arrived!
