Chapter 510: The Magnificent Act the Four Behemoth Families Wanted to Accomplish (Part One)
Xu Cheng received a secret meeting code that he had previously created with Luo Yi, so he went to the hotel and knocked on a door. Luo Yi came to open the door, and Xu Cheng saw that the big burly Luo Yi had become a lot darker after just a few months.
The two of them walked towards the living room.
Xu Cheng got straight to the point. “How is it?’
Luo Yi: “The water’s very deep, and there are also many masters. The most important thing is that, you can buy weapons from all nations over there, as long as you have money.”
“How much of the one billion dollars I gave you are left? Why didn’t I see you requesting for more funds later on?”
Luo Yi said with a bitter smile, “There’s no way to use it. Right now, our registered mercenary group only has a size of 50 people. We also gathered some hungry local refugees and gave them food and drink, and taught them basic defense and firearm skills. Although the scale is small and can’t be compared to those bigger mercenary groups, we do have very solid monetary funding and have enough supplies. Right now, the territory we claimed has a base of about 160 acres in size.”
Xu Cheng asked, “How’s the overall strength of the entire Land of Mercenaries?”
Luo Yi said solemnly, “Very powerful! Far stronger than we expected.”
Xu Cheng: “What do you mean?”
Luo Yi: “You might be surprised by this, but we actually saw many top-tier masters over there. There were many retired special force elites from the M Nation that actually hid deep in that land. Not just the M Nation, there were retired elites behind all those big mercenary groups that were backed by nations. When you put those retired military elites in that land, they thrive like fish in the water. It’s no wonder that the place is always so chaotic. Over the past two months, we were attacked many times by other mercenary groups. It’s a bit unrealistic to expand, the king of mercenaries, Kush, absolutely doesn’t allow private mercenary groups that aren’t backed by nations to expand to a bigger scale. We were warned quite a few times too, and over a dozen recruits were killed. This is also why we didn’t ask for more funds from you, Big Brother Cheng. We have a lot of supplies, weapons, and ammunition stocked up, but we couldn’t find enough men that are willing to join us. Many of the lone wolves saw our scale and don’t want to consider joining at all.”
“Just wait for a bit longer then, wait for my return. Hide with Li Wei first and get familiarized with that land. Just focus on doing intelligence work,” Xu Cheng said.
He still needed to spend a bit more time to perfect his genetic medicine. When he returned to the Three Swordsmen, it would be the time he conquers and expands his territory!
Luo Yi nodded. Speaking of intel, he asked, “Big Brother Cheng, that intelligence base of yours, has it been established yet?”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Xu Cheng: “I’ve recruited the personnel needed, and right now we are invading a few nations’ defense networks to steal their intel. But right now, it’s useless to be anxious. After this is all optimized, I will join you guys. Just be careful with Li Wei, and during this period, let’s focus on recruiting elites, even if they are rare, over just any people to fill the number. Remember, since we are in the Land of Mercenaries, then we only want people that have the ambition to fight with their lives on the line for the future. I’m not worried that they are too ambitious, I’m worried my guys aren’t ambitious enough. The first rule of doing things under me is to have the balls to do it!”
Luo Yi nodded. “We did make good friends with a few lone wolves over there. You will see them when you come. Although they aren’t as strong as me or Li Wei, they have quite a few wild dreams and are very capable too.”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Have you seen the remnant mercenary groups previously raised by the four behemoth families?”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Luo Yi nodded. “Those four families indeed invested a lot of money into that land back then. It could be said that those four families’ mercenary groups are leaders in that land only below Kush’s group. Back then, maybe the four behemoth families wanted to establish a nation of their own in that land, but unexpectedly, many nations seemed to be interested in that land, so they couldn’t really make much progress later on.”
