The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1276: New Moon Navy!
Chu Mu swept through many empires. Though south forbidden resources weren’t too plentiful, there were so many soul pets that there inevitably would be some spirit crystals.
Soul crystals were far more valuable than soul cores. When Chu Mu swept through, he filled his spatial ring with soul crystals, monarch rank, emperor rank, dominator rank.
In a year’s time, New Moon Ground slowly had more people enter middle class dominator rank. They also seemed to have more development in outer realms. With New Moon Ground’s constant resource investment, the ten realms all had rather large palaces, while the rest also had some physical presence.
Every palace had at least a dominator rank expert standing guard while they recruited monarch and emperor ranks. After all, new moon ground still had the most resources for monarch and emperor ranks. These resources were creating mountains in their storage. If they didn’t use it for recruiting, it’ll be truly a waste.
After going back to Wanxiang City, Pang Yue heard Chu Mu, Chao Lengchuan, and Ye Wansheng were bringing her and quickly went back to soul pet palace to tidy her belongings.
With Chu Mu involved, things were usually done very efficiently. The moment Pang Yue finished gathering her things, they were about to leave.
Except, the moment they left the city gates, Elder Pang Xing chased after them out of the city.
Pang Yue stuck her tongue out. She truly wasn’t being the best daughter, leaving without even telling her dad.
Before they left, Pang Xing told Chu Mu and the other two to treat Pang Yue well.
Elder Pang was truly helpless. Elder Pang had just found Pang Yue a good teacher not long ago who he hoped would teach Pang Yue well and train her.
Yet, Chu Mu and the others came and convinced his daughter to leave in a few mere words. Even more infuriating was that she was ready to leave without a word. If not for his wife telling him, Elder Pang probably wouldn’t even know of this.
“King Chu, you’re leaving again?” Xiao Hai said.
Xiao Hai was already used to this movement. Having Chu Mu in the city once a year was already better than average.
“Ha, Xiao Hai, there’s me too. I’m going with them to Wupan Continent, the other side of Dark Sky Ocean World.” Pang Yue jumped out from beside Chu Mu and smiled widely.
“Wait, King Chu, if you’re bringing Prince Chao and brother Ye, you should bring me too.” XIao Hai immediately said.
Going with Chu Mu meant guaranteed increases in strength. Who wouldn’t want such an opportunity?
“Guard your city well and we can discuss it in the future.” Ye Wansheng said.
It was not a vacation, so why would he bring so many people?
“Yup, there it is- pushing me off again. Stay safe!” Xiao Hai laughed bitterly.
After saying goodbye to Xiao Hai, everyone chanted an incantation and flew towards Windy Rain city.
Everyone was dominator rank now. New Moon Ground was indeed only the size of a third rank realm. Compared to larger realms, it truly was tiny. It took no time to fly across the realm.
Windy Rain city
Wind rain city still was, as its name stated, covered in wind and rain. Downcast clouds, grey rain water, and a fresh but moist air permeated the city.
Windy rain city’s port was the largest of wanxiang Realm, able to hold hundreds of white ocean beast boats.
Considering that Wanxiang City wanted to create a navy and the Windy Rain City was the only large port, the Windy rain city’s harbor had to be created.
Liu Binglan thought through many things carefully. Knowing that they might have to communicate with Wupan continent in the future, the Windy Rain City was under great construction. Soon, Windy Rain City would become the third largest city in Wanxiang City.
“Strange, why is the weather getting better and better as we near the Windy Rain City?” Pang Yue sat on Dead Dream’s back and asked, confused.
Windy Rain City was known for being constantly raining. Someone once made a statistic that showed that a hundred days of sun total in a ten year span is already a miracle.
Chu Mu also noticed this strange phenomenon. The closer they got to Dark Sky Ocean World, the wetter it should get.
After not long, they entered windy rain city. Bright sunlight dried fell on the city. Dew dripped from roofs, streets, and walls, letting off pearl-like glimmers.
Passing through the bustling city, Chu Mu flew straight to the harbor.
“You see what that thing on the harbor is?” Chao Lengchuan pointed at the deep blue harbor.
As they got closer, Chu Mu was confused to find a large amount of military ships at the harbor collectively holding a massive black beast!
The monster was dead already. Half of it was in the water while the other half was on the coast.
The harbor was surrounded by people. They all stared, full of shock, at the massive beast’s corpse, discussing excitedly.
“We can change our city’s name in the future!” One boat captain said excitedly to the citizens on the coast.
“Why, windy rain city has been our name for thousands of years, why change it?” Someone asked confused.
“Haha, aren’t you curious as to why windy rain city hasn’t been raining recently?” The long bearded captain said proudly.
“Yeah, we haven’t had rain in two or three days consecutively, it really is strange.”
“Yes, I heard my grandfather say that Windy Rain City has gone at least a hundred years without consecutive sunny days.”
“Why is that- could it be because of this massive beast?”
Discussion rose again, but most people couldn’t understand what had happened.
“Windy rain city has always been prone to rain because of this.” The boat captain stood high up so everyone could see.
“This is an ocean cloud beast. Its actually our neighbor and needs to poke its head out of the water to breathe all the time. Its breath condenses into moist air and creates a massive cloud that collects over windy rain city. Now this beast has been slain by the ocean army Yuan Sui and Navy Leader Sang Ying!” The boat captain said.
Everyone was originally not convinced, but once the windy rain city master came to affirm it, everyone finally believed it. The rain that constantly plagued the city was now gone with the windy rain beast.
Windy rain city surrounded this city for thousands of years. With it suddenly becoming sunny, many elders found it uncomfortable.
However, the windy rain city’s plants after so many years of nurturing would definitely grow wildly after the sun comes in.
With vibrant plants, the soul pets will slowly increase. As long as the people of Windy Rain City get used to the sun, their days will get better and better.
“No wonder. That’s actually a good thing. If a harbor constantly gets rained on, it’s usually a big issue.” Chao Lengchuan said.
“En, let’s fly down together.” Chu mu said.
Dead Dream’s wings retracted as it landed lightly on the largest boat.
This largest ship was the one that great leader Xu Kuang had given Chu Mu back then.
After Sang Ying re-engineered it, it was the new symbol of new Moon Ground.
New Moon Ground’s navy was all black with a glimmering silver moon. It was a very eye-grabbing and iconic symbol. Both sides of the boats were also painted with the new moon marks to show their specialty.
“You’re finally back!” Sang Ying looked at Chu Mu’s Dead Dream fly down and immediately smiled.
Chu Mu introduced Ye Wansheng and Pang Yue to Sang Ying.
Beside Sang Ying was Yuan Sui, the old hero chief. His eyes were muddied now, and no longer had the sharpness that came with his title as hero chief.
When Yuan Sui saw Chu Mu, he could only barely smile.
“I didn’t actually know you were an ocean soul pet trainer.” Chu Mu said to Yuan Sui.
Yuan Sui laughed bitterly, “I grew up here in windy rain city, how could I not have water type soul pets?”
Though Yuan Sui was imprisoned for a while, he was still powerful. Since he could combine forces with Sang Ying and get rid of an ocean beast like that, he shouldn’t be any weaker than Sang Ying.
Both of them managing the navy should keep it solid.
“Recently, we’ve been starting to have some exchange with Wupan Continent. They said that other than the annoying ocean beast in our territory, there is also a group of pirates that do everything. They told me that if we killed the rain ocean beast, they might start coming to new moon ground. I think they’ve also heard from somewhere that new moon ground is especially rich.
This past year, Sang Ying did a lot. Because of Liu Binglan’s preparations this past year, the ocean army had been mostly formed already. More would continue to join the army.
“Wind Rain City is the only entrance into new moon ground. If they tried to go straight through southern forbidden realm, we have even less to worry about.” Yuan Sui said.
“En, the main issue is Wupan Continent’s bounty for them is very high. Their leader has a bounty of 9000 xuan!” Sang Ying said.
“9000 xuan, that’s a large number. Do you know their location?” Chu Mu’s eyes lit up and asked.
“We discovered it accidentally. They were hiding very close to the ocean cloud beasts on an island. We originally wanted to send this information to Wupan Navy but since you’re here, then let’s go eliminate them. I heard they have quite a few boast and resources. Even without it, the bounty is worth it.” Sang Ying said.
“Hehe, I like that, doing the other pirates dirty!” Ye Wansheng immediately laughed.
Sang Ying straightened his face, “No, we’re a navy, New Moon Navy. We’re sending our troops out for the safety and wellbeing of all the harbor cities of Wupan Continent- its for the people!”
