Becoming the Master of a Mermaid Island From Today - Chapter 39
Lei Xiu intended to give ten sets of armor to Sharkwood and the other sharks. The remaining five sets would be used as bargaining chips for Sharkwood to convince the four Razor Tiger Clans.
Fifteen sets of armor required 15,000 gold coins! It took a long time to forge and required a total of seven hours!
Lei Xiu looked at his characteristic panel.
Host: Lei Xiu (Ocean Ranch Master)
Ranch: Mermaid Island (432 / 500) Ocean Tree (Mature phase)
Class: Rank Two Warrior (470 / 600)
Item: 5,500 gold coins
Subsidiary species: Razor Tiger Shark (infinitely close to Rank Two Novice)
After such a long period of development and Mo Nian and the rest going out to look for mermaids and invite them to stay, there were already 432 mermaids on the island.
“The 20,000 gold coins that I have just saved up are now only left with 5,000 gold coins… These days are too hard!” Lei Xiu groaned in agony.
In his previous life, as a seafaring explorer, Lei Xiu had a net worth of hundreds of millions.. At that time, he could be considered a rich man, and spending money was considered extravagant. But even so, Lei Xiu had never spent so much money so quickly like now. In the blink of an eye, tens of thousands of gold coins had become thousands. Who would not feel uncomfortable when spending money like this?
Thus, Lei Xiu could only wait.
[Ding! Main mission: Please complete the mission of letting 500 creatures live on Mermaid Island as soon as possible. Mission Completion: 50 experience points and 10,000 gold coins.]
The system’s voice sounded.
“Oh? Another main mission?” Lei Xiu muttered as he listened to the voice in his mind.
“Guards!” Lei Xiu said indifferently.
“Yes! Island Master! What are your orders?”
As soon as Lei Xiu finished speaking, someone outside immediately responded. This was a mermaid that Lei Xiu had specially arranged to be in charge of passing messages and all the trivial matters.
“Get Mo Nian over here!” Lei Xiu said.
“Yes!” The mermaid respectfully retreated.
Soon, the mermaid guard brought Mo Nian to Lei Xiu.
“Island Master! Why did you call me?” Mo Nian asked curiously.
“It’s like this. I want to ask if there are any more mermaids in this sea?” Lei Xiu said slowly.
“Island Master, I have basically checked all the places in our sea area. There are no signs of mermaids!” Mo Nian replied.
“What about the other seas?” Lei Xiu asked.
“Island Master, we are in the sea area in the north. To the east is the sea area where the ships of the few great Pirate Lords often move about. It is also the nest of the few great Pirate Lords. In the middle is the depths of the sea. Even the famous Pirate Lords do not dare to venture deep into it.”
“As for the south and west, I only know that the south is a forbidden land. Any race in the ocean will be instantly killed once they enter! The elders in the small clan have warned us not to go there, so we don’t know much about it,” Mo Nian said slowly.
“There’s such a magical place!” Lei Xiu’s eyes widened in shock.
“Yes, yes, Island Master! There are many magical things in the ocean. After all, the ocean occupies most of the board in this world,” Mo Nian said with a smile.
“If that’s the case, then the only path left is the one that leads west from us,” Lei Xiu said after thinking for a while.
“That’s right, Island Master!” Mo Nian nodded in agreement.
“Alright, then you can follow us to the west to see if there are any other mermaids, then invite them to stay here!” said Lei Xiu.
“It’s the Island Master!” Mo Nian retreated immediately, planning to find a few mermaids to explore the unknown place.
[Ding! Congratulations to host for successfully forging armor. You have received 30 experience points and 6,000 gold coins]
The system’s voice suddenly sounded.
“Ai! In the beginning, we would earn gold coins after completing the quests. Now, we have to pay gold coins for the quests. What the hell is this!” Lei Xiu complained.
Lei Xiu then looked at the fifteen sets of armor in his storage space. The surface of the armor was blue, and it felt smooth to the touch. It didn’t even feel heavy when placed on his hand.
“This is really good stuff!” Lei Xiu nodded with satisfaction and muttered to himself.
“Island Master! I’ve gathered the mermaids. Let’s set off now!” At that moment, Mo Nian’s voice sounded from afar, interrupting Lei Xiu’s thoughts.
“Alright! Go ahead! Be careful on the way!”
Upon hearing this, Lei Xiu looked over at Mo Nian. At this moment, Mo Nian and the rest were all ready and waiting for Lei Xiu’s command.
Lei Xiu had a rough look at the abilities of Mo Nian and the rest and was completely relieved.
Mo Nian brought along Mo Wu and the 50 low-level second-grade mermaids on the island. There were only about a hundred low-level second-grade mermaids on the island. Mo Nian’s trip this time could be said to have taken away half of the strength of the island.
Moreover, there were two low-level third-grade mermaids, Mo Nian and Mo Wu. Even if the team encountered a strong enemy, they could retreat if they couldn’t defeat them.
“Yes, Island Master!”
The group replied one after another before following Mo Nian to explore the west.
“I hope they bring good news!” Lei Xiu muttered as he watched Mo Nian and the others leave.
“Mo Wen!” Lei Xiu, who had regained his senses, did not forget what he was about to do and immediately shouted.
“Yes, Island Master! What can I do for you?” Mo Wen came to Lei Xiu’s side from not far away and replied.
“I’ll give you a mission! Here are 15 sets of armor. Send them to Sharkwood and tell him that 10 of these 15 sets of armor are for them. Give the remaining 5 sets to Sharkwood and let him use them as a bargaining chip to convince the other four Razor Tiger Sharks clans.” Lei Xiu said solemnly. As he spoke, he took out 15 sets of armor from his storage space and handed them to Mo Wen.
Inviting the other Razor Tiger Sharks to join them was a big matter, so they had to be serious.
“Yes, Island Master! I promise to complete the mission!” Mo Wen replied.
Without any delay, she immediately brought along 15 sets of armor and headed out in search of Sharkwood.
Lei Xiu watched as Mo Wen left and returned to the center of the island.
He had nothing else to do now. Everything he needed to do required gold coins, but he only had 5000 gold coins now, which was not enough for him to squander.
Hence, he turned on the system and started looking around.
“Huh? What’s this? Gravitational Magnetic Field?” Lei Xie looked at the defensive structure of the Mermaid Island Ranch in confusion and discovered something interesting.
Once this magnetic field was built, it could envelop the area within the magnetic field. Within it, any creature would be affected by the gravitational field. Their movements would become slow, and the gravity of this gravity field would gradually increase over time.
However, it was also limited. The highest level of gravity in the first-level gravity field was two times that of normal places, the second-level gravity field was two times, the third-level gravity field was three times, all the way until the tenth-level gravity field was ten times that of the outside world.
The White Shark from before was only as fast as the mermaids in the gravity field, but it would be crushed into minced meat by the powerful gravity field!
“Too strong! Too strong!” Looking at the introduction of the Gravitational Magnetic Field, Lei Xiu could not help but feel greatly shocked, his lips trembling.
Without another word, he immediately yearned to build it. But as expected, how could such a powerful thing be built by his current status?
“Oh heavens! Oh earth! Kill me with a single sword strike!” Lei Xiu howled in agony.
He was really in too much agony. What was the most painful thing in the world? It was nothing more than having a mountain of treasure right in front of you, only to realize you could not reach it! This was worse than death!
Just as Lei Xiu finished his thoughts, thunder suddenly rumbled in the clear sky.
“No! I was just joking… I was just joking… Don’t take it seriously…” Lei Xiu was immediately shocked as he clasped his hands together.
“Looks like I can only take it slow… Money… Money… I want money! That’s right! Pirates! Those pirates are all very rich! Robbing! That’s right, robbing them! That’s the only way I can quickly save up enough gold coins!” Lei Xiu clenched his fists as his body trembled. He kept mumbling as if he was possessed.
“Mo Yuan!” Lei Xiu jolted up and shouted immediately.
