Chapter 742: Darkness Enveloping the Land (Part One)
Although Fei invited them to come and sit down in the pavilion, the [Cold Blood Nine Eagles] didn’t dare to be so casual in front of the Imperial Martial Saint and their idol. They all nodded after hearing Fei’s words, but they didn’t sit down after they walked in. Instead, they all stood behind Modric respectfully.
Fei didn’t force them.
Since the inception of the [Letter Office], Modric and Zolasc were in charge of everything, and Fei didn’t get his hands into the management of the organization. It was clear that Modric had his own ways of managing people. The [Cold Blood Nine Eagles] were famous in the underground world, and their strengths were far more powerful than Modric’s, but they were very respectful toward Modric. Therefore, Fei didn’t want to do anything to break Modric’s prestige in their minds accidentally.
Looking at this blond young man in front of him, Fei felt like he could still vaguely sense within him the thin young man who risked his life to steal a piece of bread for his starving friend in the mine pit of Blackstone. This young man who got out of the mine pit had accompanied Chambord and grown with it, and he had witnessed how Chambord went from a little level 6 affiliated kingdom to a supreme force in the Empire as well as the king’s legendary and shocking uprise.
Fei was in a great mood.
The two chatted for a while, and Modric told Fei a lot of stories about him and Zolasc managing the [Letter Office], and he also gave Fei a detailed report on the [Letter Office]’s size, coverage, and intelligence networks.
Right now, the [Letter Office] had grown out of the territories of Zenit. Under the powerful backing from Chambord both in terms of finance and supply of masters, it had intelligence workers in all the big empires within 500,000 kilometers of Zenit. In fact, some of the intelligence workers were executing missions in the empires outside of this zone.
In this year, the [Letter Office] had recruited a lot of people, and some of them were Moon-Class Elites. Also, it had grown some talents. For example, the two Moon-Class Elites who were in their sixties in the [Cold Blood Nine Eagles] recently advanced after they completed a big mission and were rewarded with the godly herbs that Fei obtained from the Core Region in the Mythical Palace.
What was worth mentioning was that the [Letter Office] wasn’t just working on building the intelligence networks; it also helped Chambord establish many hidden commerce routes. Even though these routes weren’t that big yet, the perfect-tier magic gems that Fei created from the Horadric Cube didn’t need to be traded using the Holy Church or the Soros’ Merchant Group. The [Letter Office] was able to execute this task, and all the wealth was passed back to the Chambord Kingdom.
At the same time, all kinds of advanced messaging devices and small teleportation arrays were created by the Mad Scientists’ Laboratory, and they were put into use. Therefore, the [Letter Office] was more technologically advanced than its competitors, and it had the fastest, most accurate, and most reliable networks.
Without exaggeration, 60% of Chambord’s strength lay within the [Letter Office].
In fact, even Fei didn’t know exactly how terrifying the [Letter Office] would be if it exerted its full force, but he was sure that it wouldn’t be hard to overthrow a level 1 empire like Zenit. Of course, it was contingent on Emperor Yassin being close to death, just like how he was acting right now.
Currently, the [Letter Office] was clearly divided into two divisions.
Modric whose nickname was [Young Man] was in charge of everything happening inside the Zenit Empire, and Zolasc whose nickname was [Old Man] was in charge of everything outside the Empire. This was why [Old Man] Zolasc couldn’t come here to meet with Fei on Martial Saint Mountain today; he was hundreds of thousands of kilometers away.
“These are the important intelligence reports that Uncle Zolasc sent back using the small teleportation stations. Please have a look…” Modric took out a few thick stacks of paper from his storage ring, and he put them on the table in order.
“Eh.” Fei nodded and started reading from the first stack.
