Everyone Has a Castle: I Choose Elves to be in My Army - Chapter 7

Gale lay on the worn sofa and closed his eyes, seriously sensing the energy that was circulating around in his body.
After a long time, he opened his eyes and a golden light shot out from them.
Gale clenched his fists. As long as he was willing, he could unleash at least twice the strength compared to his previous self!
As his level increased, he also gained some ability to protect himself.
At least, those Tier 1 monsters were no longer a threat to him.
“Perhaps, in the future, someone will really be able to achieve immortality.”
The increase in his strength also made Gale full of hope for the future.
Perhaps he would become the person who would step into the domain of eternal life.
After adapting to his abilities, Gale went to the courtyard.
At this moment, there were more than ten corpses neatly placed in the courtyard.
These were all monsters that Cicely had hunted outside. They were all shifted from the warehouse to the courtyard according to his request.
“What a hardworking little fellow.”
As his strength increased, all aspects of Gale’s body improved.
He could clearly see how she was hunting all kinds of monsters outside the forest.
These monsters were generally between Tier 1 and 2, so they were naturally no match for Cicely.
Retracting his gaze, Gale focused on the monsters’ corpses instead.
With a wave of his hand, he disintegrated these corpses.
The result was obtaining 200 units of food, as well as some fur and materials.
Among them, the most common were part of the monsters such as monster teeth.
Gale didn’t know what these materials were for.
However, he still maintained the belief that he would not let anything go to waste and kept them all in the warehouse.
After Cicely’s efforts, he now had 10 Origin Edges as well.
The upgrade of the military’ building was now a tenth complete.
Judging from the upgrade conditions, the difficulty of building more battle units was much higher than that of building his castle.
It would take some time to gather the 100 Origin Edges needed.
Only by killing monsters would one have a chance to obtain an Origin Edge, but even then it was not a guaranteed matter.
As for upgrading his Elementary castle to an Intermediate castle, he only needed the common materials.
“Then let’s upgrade the castle first.”
Gale had already calculated that as long as he sold all the 200 units of food he had just obtained, he would have enough materials to upgrade the castle.
In his heart, the castle was as important as his military building. There was no such thing as favoring one over the other.
With a thought, Gale placed the 200 units of food on the [Trading Channel].
His rates were the same as before.
If he continued to raise the price, he would definitely be labeled as a ‘profiteer’.
The moment the food was placed on trade, many Castle Lord immediately fought over it.
After all, the quantity was limited. If their speed was slightly slower, they might miss this opportunity.
No matter how inflated the price was, they would still swallow all their grievances alone.
The Castle Lord could still resist hunger, but the summoned battle units could not.
Since their battle units could not kill monsters, they could only absorb a trace of energy through food.
Otherwise, their Loyalty Meter would fall below 60 points.
At that time, the soldiers might lose their rationality and treat their summoner Castle Lord as food to replenish their energy.
They were not like Gale, who could summon battle units whose loyalty would never decrease no matter how difficult their lives would be.
Moreover, given Cicely’s strength, it was impossible for her to not be able to obtain any energy intake through hunting monsters.
[What kind of monsters are these? Their hand speeds are all so fast?]
[F*ck, did they turn on the autoclicker?]
[I just clicked on it, but 200 units of food are already gone?!]
[Wasn’t it supposed to be two hours later? Why did it suddenly go on sale!]
[I was in a daze for a while. When I came back to my senses, the food was gone!]
[I’m really hungry now. I really want to eat something hot!]
[Actually, it’s fine if I’m hungry, but the battle unit I summoned is looking at me strangely. It seems to be treating me as food!]
[My soldiers are in the same situation. I can only risk my life to find food!]
[Aren’t you curious about the type of soldiers that Big Boss Gale summoned? In less than a day, he obtained 200 units of food!]
[I think he should have summoned something at least at the level of the Dragon Race. Only battle units at this level have such powerful strength!]
[I remember now. Not long ago, someone summoned a dragon!]
[I, who summoned a wild rabbit, am envious!]
“It would appear that I am not the only one with good luck.”
Gale was still a little surprised. He hadn’t expected anyone to summon a dragon as their first battle unit.
However, he was merely surprised.
So what if they were of the dragon race?
His Cicely was a unique battle unit!
Her combat ability was off the charts. In a real battle, the dragons would be no match for her.
Cicely was the Elven Empress. With her noble bloodline, she could completely suppress the dragons.
Gale opened the warehouse to check on his haul.
After selling 200 units of food, he received 2,000 units of wood and 1,000 units of stone in return!
In addition to the resources he had obtained the first time, it was enough to upgrade the castle!
At this moment, a cold voice sounded in his mind.
[The upgrade conditions for the castle have been met. Do you want to upgrade immediately?]
The moment he heard the voice, Gale replied without hesitation.
The moment he answered, the entire castle emitted a dazzling white light.
The blinding white light forced him to close his eyes.
A minute passed.
When he sensed that the light had disappeared, Gale opened his eyes.
The entire appearance of the castle in front of him had changed.
After the upgrade, the height and area of the castle had increased significantly.
The originally dilapidated walls had been renewed.
On the steps to the interior of the castle, the green moss carpeting the area disappeared.
In its place was a clean stone staircase.
“Now it looks more presentable to live in.”
Gale was very satisfied with this upgraded castle.
Although the structure was still somewhat old, it was at least bearable to live in.
Compared to an Elementary castle, the difference was like heaven and earth!
Gale walked straight into the castle.
The dust in the air had completely disappeared, and the old furniture had been updated as well.
There was even a new fireplace added to allow one to keep themselves warm.
At the same time, that ice-cold voice sounded again.
[Congratulations, the castle has been upgraded to an Intermediate castle!]
[Your sphere of influence has increased to 500 meters!]
[The defense of the Castle Heart has been increased by three times!]
[The influence of your castle in the Endless Land has increased greatly!]
