Everyone Has a Castle: I Choose Elves to be in My Army - Chapter 5
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Gale had left five units of food for himself. It was definitely enough to sustain himself. Furthermore, since Cicely would bring back more corpses of the wild monsters, there would be no lack of food in the foreseeable future.
Thus, he released 70 units of food for trading.
The people who saw Gale’s transaction announcement immediately went crazy.
Countless Castle Lords were shocked by Gale’s actions, since he had actually released so much food at once.
After all, this was only the first day of their descent into the world.
The strength of the Castle Lords was generally at level zero. To enemies such as the monsters outside the light curtain, they were basically serving themselves up on a silver platter if they dared step out.
As for the Castle Lords’ initial battle units, their numbers and strength were not enough to support them against wild monsters as well.
Leaving the protective light screen and going out to collect wild fruits and other food could only be done when one was lucky. Those situations were also rare and few.
The general situation was that the Castle Lords would use their battle units or join in themselves to gather wood, stones, and other materials near their castle.
If they encountered wild monsters, they would immediately give up everything and escape back to the castle.
Thus, food could be considered the most precious resource at the moment.
A Castle Lord who could kill wild monsters and obtain their meat and food was definitely a top-notch existence.
This Castle Lord must have obtained an extremely powerful initial battle unit.
Such a person would naturally turn into an existence that everyone would look up to.
In fact, the exact same process was taking place right now.
There were countless people discussing Gale with envy on the forums.
The world was just so unfair. All they got were some weak and useless battle units, but some people actually obtained such powerful initial battle units here, allowing them to pull far ahead.
If they knew that Gale military building was a Random Battle Unit Pool that could allow him to recruit any type of battle unit, they would probably be so angry that they would vomit blood.
Of course, Gale wasn’t stupid enough to expose his advantage.
Currently, in [World Chat], because of the transaction information posted by Gale, there was a huge uproar.
Countless people were scolding Gale.
The reason was naturally because Gale’s trading prices were too steep.
[This guy is simply a profiteer!]
[That’s right, the price of wood and stone has doubled according to the market price, and the price of Origin Edges has also increased by four times!]
[Big Boss Gale, don’t you feel guilty doing this?!]
[That’s right, can’t you reduce the price? You’re a big boss!]
[Yeah, you’re exploiting your compatriots!]
“Hehe, I’m the only one without morals. Don’t think about tying me down.” Gale sneered in his heart.
His strength belonged to himself, and it was because of his strength and ability that people recognized him as a big boss. Did he have to lower himself to sell food to the weak?
Why should he serve and cater to them?
Furthermore, they claimed that his prices were doubled and tripled based on the ‘market price’. Who set this so-called market price anyway?
This belonged to him. He would decide how to deal with it and how to price it.
It was not the place for those who thought they stood on the moral high ground to give pointers.
Towards those comments that knew their limits and did not go overboard, Gale did not bother with them.
However, some of the comments that were too malicious and repulsive were directly blacklisted by Gale.
Food at this stage was already priceless. The food that Gale had just put up was the only one available in the [Trading Channel].
There were billions of Castle Lords.
Even if you didn’t buy it, there would still be people who would buy it, even if they felt like their heart was bleeding.
And indeed, not out of Gale’s expectations, the moment he switched from [World Chat] back to the [Trading Channel], he saw that the 70 units of food he had put up had all been bought.
The current [Trading Channel] once again returned to the empty state before Gale arrived.
A series of notifications rang in Gale’s mind.
[Losing one unit of food, receiving 10 units of stone]
[Losing a unit of food, receiving 20 units of wood]
These two types of news repeated themselves continuously. To Gale’s disappointment, no Castle Lord used their Origin Edges to exchange for food.
This was understandable.
Origin Edges could be used to upgrade their own military buildings, and the only method to obtain them was to kill monsters in the wild. They were much more precious than wood and stones, which could be obtained through simple harvesting.
“70 units of food in exchange for 700 units of wood and 350 units of stone.”
“I should be able to upgrade the castle after a few more exchanges.”
All the resources exchanged were automatically stored in the castle warehouse, and there was no need for Gale to manually sort them out.
Right now, he was planning for the future.
While one’s military building was the most important, the castle itself was not to be ignored. It could be seen as the core foundation of the castle.
On the other side, even while Gale was not paying attention, the shock he created did not go away.
The discussions on the [World Chat] were still in full swing.
[70 units! 70 units of food! It disappeared just like that?!]
[Where’s the food? Can someone tell me where the d*mned food is?!]
[Where did it go? Of course it was bought by someone. Idiot.]
[Who are those buyers, are they that desperate? Don’t they know how to hold back a little?]
[Leaving you with six pancakes [1. Slang used predominantly in Northern China, it is used to refer to something/someone as worthless], I was the one who bought the last unit of food. How is it? Are you envious? Oh, I forgot, a person can only speak once a day on the World Channel. You can’t speak anymore today, hahaha…]
[You are all hand speed monsters, right? I only hesitated for a moment, and in the blink of an eye, all the food was gone!]
[That’s right. Those who managed to get their hands on food are definitely those kind of hand speed freaks who have been single since their birth and can only use their hands!]
[Seconding the poster above!]
[Support my ass! Who asked you to think for so long? First come first serve, don’t you understand? What were you guys expecting?]
[Yeah, am I your father? Do I have to leave all the good things for you?]
[I just want to ask if Big Boss Gale has any more food?]
[Same question. I managed to collect some stones under great fear, and am hungry and tired now. I just want to eat my fill and have a good sleep.]
[I want to eat food!]
When the food on the [Trading Channel], the name of the item trader also appeared.
All the Castle Lords who were paying attention to this naturally knew Gale’s name now.
As time passed, the tone they originally had towards Gale also changed. People were no longer denouncing his behavior as that of a profiteer, but instead asking if he had more food.
