When they returned to the territory, the sky had already gradually darkened.
Wang Jue tallied all his current supplies.
[Materials: Mithril x17, Steel x6, Bronze Block x86, Iron Block x134, Soul x3, Crystal x2…]
[Repository: Refined Forging Skill Book x1, Low-Level Territory Upgrade Scroll x1, Level 2 Hostel Blueprint x1, Rice Sapling x10, Space Hide Backpack…]
[Weapons: Arrows of Frost, Sword of Winter]
[Gold Coins: 983]
Today, I also opened an ore yard and built a watchtower to recruit five spearmen, temporarily providing the ore yard with a defense force.
At the same time, I now have enough resources to expand my territory.
After the territory is expanded, more buildings and structures can be constructed.
For example, farmlands and hostels.
If more militia are recruited, the growth of basic resources will slowly increase until the territory is self-sufficient.
This will form a virtuous cycle.
Wang Jue came to the courtyard and brought out the Territory Upgrade Scroll.
[Low-Level Territory Upgrade Scroll: It can upgrade a Low-Level Territory to High-Level Territory. Requires 500 Gold coins, 3 Souls, 3 Mithril, 50 Iron Blocks, 50 Copper Blocks, 80 Rocks, 100 Wood.]
He had enough resources.
He waved his hand and leveled up the territory.
[Territory upgrade, you can rename the territory.]
Wang Jue thought for a moment and typed in three words.
“Ancient City Wei.”
The sheepskin scroll in his hand slowly flew up and floated into the air above the territory.
The scroll was suddenly set on fire, and a blue flame rose.
A beam of light enveloped the shabby yard.
Changes began to take effect in the entire territory immediately.
The area slowly expanded.
The limestone brick walls slowly built themselves.
In just a few minutes, the dilapidated wooden hut transformed into a three-story villa.
It was not luxurious or grand, but at least, it was much better than the earlier wooden hut.
[Level 1 Territory: Overlord’s Residence]
Wang Jue pushed the door open and entered.
What came into view was a large living room that was 70-80 square meters in area.
There was a fur rug in the middle and a fireplace.
There were also a few large wooden chairs on both sides. The patterns carved on them were vivid and lifelike.
Wang Jue walked around the house.
There was a living room, a kitchen, and four bedrooms on the second floor.
And a big bathroom.
The third floor was mainly for the guest room, drawing room, and other facilities.
In front of the small villa, there were also stone slabs spreading out, forming a small square.
The light beam continued to spread outwards.
Wang Jue knew that the territory would be directly expanded to an area with a radius of 1,000 meters.
The entire center of the territory was very different from before.
Wang Jue suppressed the ecstasy in his heart.
“Calm down, calm down. This is only a Level 1 Territory.”
He checked the changes after the upgrade.
[System notification: Territory upgrade completed. Territory is currently a Level 1 Territory.]
[System notification: After leveling up, gold coins can be spent to upgrade various buildings and structures in the territory to the corresponding level.]
[System notification: After leveling up, the territory will be able to recruit more potential and capable commoners.]
[System notification: After leveling up, the time needed to construct basic structures within the territory will decrease by 10%.]
[System notification: After leveling up, the territory repository will expand.]
There were dozens of upgrade notifications.
Wang Jue opened the guild column after reading all of them.
[Elementary Guild: Earthly Paradise (Tap to upgrade)]
[Quality: Ordinary Human Construction]
[Requirement: 60 Gold Coins]
Tap here to level up!
With a flash of light, the guild building expanded from 20 square meters to 50 square meters.
He tapped to check the guild again.
[System notification: Intermediate Guild upgrade successful]
[Guild: Earthly Paradise]
[Function: A recruitment notice can be issued once a week, limited to 20 people.]
[Conditions: Every recruitment will cost 60 Gold Coins]
At the same time, small golden characters appeared below.
[Due to the guild upgrade, recruitment time has been refreshed. Now, you can recruit 20 skilled commoners and soldiers. Choose the category you want to recruit to maximize its effect.]
Wang Jue pondered for a moment.
In the small courtyard previously, everyone was gathered together. If there was any situation, they could immediately discover and deal with it.
However, the situation was different now. After expanding the territory, he would need more defensive forces to prevent invasion from the surrounding areas.
Therefore, the most important thing now was to recruit two types of people.
Then, Wang Jue issued a recruitment order in the Guild.
[Recruitment Order: Five archers, five shield-bearers, two mounted archers, and eight farmers.]
The archers were in charge of long-range attacks. Wang Jue had built four watchtowers around the territory, and the five archers were in charge of surveillance in the air.
The shield-bearers were responsible for patrol and defense to make up for their inadequacy in long-range attacks.
The mounted archers had high mobility and were responsible for exploring the surroundings.
As for the eight farmers, Wang Jue decided to let Datou lead them in procuring supplies and other responsibilities.
Soon after, 20 new members appeared in Wang Jue’s territory.
They all knelt down.
“Respected Overlord, we are willing to be at your service.”
Wang Jue smiled and immediately began assigning tasks.
Night gradually began to fall, and Carl, Datou and the others also returned one after another.
Seeing that the territory had undergone a huge change, the few of them were both surprised and happy.
Wang Jue didn’t explain further. He called Datou over and handed the Refined Forging Skill Book he had obtained from an earlier transaction to him.
Wang Jue patted his shoulder and said, “The Blacksmith Shop has been completed. From now on, you will be in charge of forging weapons and armor. I hope you won’t let me down.”
Under Ertou and Santou’s envious gazes, Datou received the Skill Book excitedly and said gratefully, “Thank you for your nurturing, my Lord. I will do my best to serve you.”
Ha, he was really good at talking.
Then, Wang Jue took a look at Ertou and Santou and said,
“Don’t be disheartened. Subsequently, I’ll make sure you both are proficient in a skill too. Now, work diligently, understand?”
The duo’s dejection was immediately washed away and they puffed up their chests.
“Yes, my Lord!”
Although their gazes were still filled with envy, at this moment, even more ambitious looks were revealed through their eyes.
Datou’s heart skipped a beat. He couldn’t get too pleased with himself. He had to continue working hard and not be surpassed by these two fellows.
Wang Jue didn’t know what they were thinking, neither did he care.
In his opinion, there was only progress with competition. As long as it was controlled in a benign environment, competition was good.
There was an additional grizzly bear stew for dinner today.
As Overlord, Wang Jue naturally had the most sumptuous meal.
Most of the most delicious parts of every beast entered his mouth.
He realized that his appetite was growing.
It should be due to an improvement in my attributes. My energy requirement is also increasing. This is a good thing.
The next most sumptuous meal went to Quina.
She didn’t eat meat, she liked vegetarian food. So, during the day, the people left in the territory dug up a lot of fruits and wild vegetables and gave them all to Quina.
Quina wasn’t just an honorable elf. She was also the strongest individual, though she rarely fought. But everyone in the territory was convinced by her capabilities.
The bonfire burned brightly.
After the group of people finished eating and drinking, they all asked to be excused.
They returned to their new hostels to rest..
