My Doomsday Territory - Chapter 12
After this ordeal, the whole sky finally darkened.
“Ding! Detection found 213 units of wood available.”
“Detection found 549 units of stone available.”
“Detection found 198 units of iron available.”
“Detection found 535 units of source crystal available.”
Tang Yu smiled. With this amount of resources, it is enough to build either the workshop or market.
Half of the four core buildings will soon be built.
Standing in the open space behind the castle, he can see the lights coming from the nearby surroundings, making it especially striking in the dark. However, no demonized beasts were attracted by this sight. After cleaning up the surrounding demonized beasts during this past two days, there aren’t many demonized beasts left in the whole resort area. Today, no more red dots appeared on the territory map at all.
After thinking about it, Tang Yu first decided to build the workshop.
Whether it’s the market or workshop, both play vital roles in the territory. But in contrast, the workshop can play its role immediately after it finishes construction, but the market… Tang Yu reckons after using up the source crystal in his hands. He would have no money left over to buy anything in the market at all!
Opening the building panel, he goes to the core buildings list and selects the workshop construction option.
“Ttiring! The construction of the workshop will consume the following resources: 500 units of source crystal, 100 units of stone, 100 units of iron. Please confirm whether to begin construction.”
In the surrounding mountains of rubbish, the myriad of materials flew through the air. The source crystals in his pocket began decomposing and emitting light. The whole process looked like a long queue of shimmering fireflies weaving together the interspersed materials hovering in midair.
Soon, a five-meter tall building with an area covering more than 200 square meters appeared in front of Tang Yu.
This is the second time he’s witnessed such a scene, but Tang Yu still finds it absolutely amazing. This is a display of unparalleled power. He still doesn’t know the origins of the system. Although this thing can make sounds and give reminders in his mind, it cannot truly communicate with him. He can presently use the system without too many obstacles. The reason is mostly due to his pre-doomsday exposure to a similar game system.
However, the system in reality may not necessarily be the same as the one in-game. Previously, Tang Yu discovered some differences from the game pub and the one in reality. His past experience cannot be blindly used as a reference in the future. In some cases, he hasn’t even built some of the in-game buildings, making this one of his blindspots later on in the future.
Shaking his head, he decides to no longer give the matter anymore thought. These things are simply too far away from him at present. In reality, the development of his territory is much more difficult than in the game. At least the speed of obtaining building resources and source crystals in the game is much faster than compared to now.
But he wasn’t dissatisfied with this progression at all.
There is nothing special about the workshop’s appearance. It looks just like an ordinary small workshop from before the doomsday. The previous pub also has an ordinary appearance, which isn’t a bad thing. But it’s far less resplendent than the appearance of the castle as if its purpose was only to be forcefully plunked down.
With curiosity, Tang Yu walked into the workshop.
The workshop is a completely enclosed space without any windows. When he opened the door and walked in, he found there was light inside. The floor and walls were uniformly drab, and the whole room was empty aside from a huge black box placed in the centre.
The black box is a square wrapped in a black shell. There are openings at both ends of the box… Tang Yu rummaged around and finally found something that looked like an operation panel.
It should be noted this is the actual operation panel.
Tang Yu checked the description and function of the workshop, which seemed much simpler than the pub. The instructions explained nothing more than placing the materials into the material port. Then, using the operation panel to select an option before finally collecting the finished equipment from the black box outlet.
The first-level workshop is equipped with the most basic blueprints, including various basic profession weapons such as basic swords, staves, muskets, daggers and morning stars. Protective equipment includes the most basic light armour, heavy armour, leather armour, cloth robe and other defensive equipment.
Apart from the weapons and armour, the most important column is the rune column.
A rune is a special symbol depicted by source force and is capable of carrying special power. Even the most basic sharpness rune depicted on an ordinary sword can make a sword cut regular iron swords as if it was mud.
Although the equipment blueprints provided by the first-level workshop look ordinary. These equipment can bear the power of a single rune, which greatly improves the overall grade of the equipment.
Similarly, the basic blueprints from the first-level workshop also include the most basic rune blueprints.
The basic sharpness rune which can slightly increases the sharpness of a weapon.
The basic mana rune which can increase the holder’s mana by a small margin.
The basic defence rune which can improve the protection ability of defensive equipment by a small margin.
There aren’t many blueprints but their functions are complete.
As long as there are enough materials, it’s possible one can assemble a complete set of equipment. Even if someone is wearing an ordinary novice outfit from the game before heading out. Tang Yu believes as long as he is able to get this set in reality. It will be enough so he can throw out all other alloy weapons, stab-proof clothing and equipment onto the streets.
There is no difference between materials used for manufacturing equipment and those used for building construction. It’s nothing more than iron materials and source crystals. If protective equipment is being manufactured. Sometimes, fur materials need to be added, such as demonized beast fur.
Coincidentally, there are still many leftover building materials and demonized beast fur which has been collected in this past couple of days. He couldn’t find another use for it before, so it was a was all placed on one smelly pile.
Tang Yu put the materials into the material port and selected the equipment he wanted to manufacture on the operation panel.
This is a no brained operation, a very simple interface.
[Manufacturing basic sharpness rune: consume 5 units of source crystal.]
[Manufacturing basic mana rune: consume 5 units of source crystal.]
[Manufacturing basic long sword: consume 5 units of iron, 5 units of source crystal, 1 basic sharpness rune.]
[Manufacturing basic staff: consume 5 units of wood, 5 units of source crystal, 1 basic mana rune.]
[Manufacturing basic defence rune:…]
Compared with other smaller sized shelters where it’s dark during the night, many places in Lindong Shelter are still lit up.
Wang Tai is dressed up as an ordinary survivor. Watching the flow of people, his heart was filled with resentment when he saw well-equipped awakened ones using sophisticated equipment.
He used to be the director of a shelter with dozens of awakened one followers and access to countless supplies. But now, he can’t even compare with some of the Lindong Shelter mercenaries!
When he escaped from the demon wave with a dozen of his subordinates, more than half were either killed or injured. As he came stumbling into Lindong, directly at his side were his last two remaining men. The other elite mercenary squads had five or six awakened ones with guns and equipment. He had nothing, no weapons and no equipment. Even the source crystal, which was highly valued in Lindong and could serve as a common currency was lost when his original shelter fell during his hasty escape.
His previous shelter has been destroyed by the demon wave. It’s impossible for him to build another shelter given his present circumstances. But if he can get to the source crystal hidden away in his previous villa, he has a chance to make a comeback. However, having just experienced the dangers of the wilderness, Wang Tai understood that with only him and his two remaining subordinates. He’s afraid they will die halfway before they ever reach the resort. What’s more, when he comes to Lindong. If he becomes destitute, it’s hard to say whether his two subordinates will directly leave him or not.
Wang Tai’s face was clouded with uncertainty.
At this time, an ordinary-looking middle-aged man came over from the distance and his face immediately fills with smiles.
The middle-aged man was expressionless and he only said a few words upon arrival: “What you offered, the boss has agreed to. I will immediately lead the team and set off tomorrow morning. I hope everything you claimed is true. Otherwise, what will happen. Presumably, you should already know in your heart.”
When Wang Tai heard this, he wasn’t dissatisfied. Instead, he brightened up and said: “Certainly, how could I dare cheat General Lin? I will heavily rely on Captain Han tomorrow.”
Han Jing glanced at him and said: “No problem.” Then he made his way back straight away.
As Wang Tai watched Han Jing walk away, his fist clenched and loosened.
On his own, he will definitely be unable to get to the resort, but it would be a different story if he were to hug a strong thigh. Fortunately, this time on his path of escape, he made a great discovery. With this information, he gained some recognition from General Lin. This man is a big shot, and in Lindong, he can rank among the top three in terms of power!
This time, in order to verify this claim. General Lin sent Han Jing, a master with the strength of a third order awakened one, almost close to fourth order, to lead the team. With such a team, it’s almost a certainty he will arrive safely at the resort. No matter how many demonized beasts remain from the demon wave or what special circumstances they may encounter along the way, it will all be crushed under absolute strength.
At that time, when the information has been verified. He will truly have climbed the wall of friendship with General Lin. In Lindong, he will borrow this opportunity and quietly return to the resort to take the hidden source crystal. He will use it as initial funds for his future development in Lindong.
He will have his chance to rise again!
