Chapter Two Hundred and Forty One – City Construction
Nan Sheng Village. The damaged walls had been reconstructed and it only took a span of a few months for this place to recover its prosperity.
Large numbers of xiuzhe had been transported over. This place also purchased all kinds of ore and other materials, but most importantly, this place sold ling grains, but it was limited. Just this was enough to cause all of Little Mountain Jie to shake.
Just as all of Little Mountain jie’s eyes were on Nan Sheng Village, a crowd of people appeared soundlessly in a mountain valley.
“We’ve searched. There are two jingshi mines here. The jingshi produced here is not high, only third-grade. This area used to belong to Sky Star Sect. Sky Star Sect did not manage to avoid the calamity, and there were heavy fatalities. The other people have disappeared.”
“Other than jingshi mines, there are three more mines in this area. They do not produce much. The primary product is Bright Flash Rock, Black Ling Stone Bead, and Greenwater Stone. The primary producer of Greenwater Stone comes from that pond right there. It is called Sky Star Lake.”
Xie Shan had done a large amount of work to research all of this.
Zuo Mo gave a satisfied expression. “Let’s choose this place!” He then asked, “What about the surrounding powers? Have they been investigated?”
Gongsun Cha smiled shyly and timidly, “They have all been destroyed.”
It was not the first time he saw Gongsun Cha smile shyly like a teenage boy, but the coldness in Xie Shan’s heart still could not be controlled. Gongsun Cha’s trademark timid smile was called “Lil’ Miss’ Slight Smile” in the camp, and all of them were afraid of it as though it was a snake or scorpion.
The female xiu wearing the black mask stood behind Zuo Mo.
This female xiu that had suddenly appeared had attracted everyone’s attention. However, no one dared to challenge her. Even Xie Shan was intimidated by her powerful strength. Xie Shan, whose cultivation had reached ningmmai third statum and was a step away from jindan, but even he did not have the courage to face the mysterious female xiu.
Many people had been secretly speculating if the female xiu was a jindan.
No one dared to ask, even Boss could not get her to speak. No one believed their face was bigger than Boss’.
Looking at the female xiu that was always steps from the Boss, they felt that is was pretty good. With such a powerful guard, Boss wouldn’t encounter any danger. This meant they did not have to worry that Boss would accidentally die, and they would collectively die as well. Dying without understanding why was an extremely depressing thought.
Zuo Mo did not have a solution to her following him. The female xiu was of unknown origins, and Zuo Mo naturally did not want her to overhear such secret information. But there was no way around it. The difference between their strengths was too large, his resistance was not effective.
Even someone like Pu Yao praised her with “powerful.” Her martial strength quickly rose in Zuo Mo’s mind to an unprecedented level. In his memory, Pu Yao had never called someone “powerful.”
Unable to communicate and not daring to attack, this was like the mouse pulling the turtle, unable to do a thing! Zuo Mo decided to let it go, pretending that she was air, as he went about his own business. The only thing worth celebrating was that she did not speak, nor make a fuss. Other than being slightly creepy, there were no other inconveniences.
He found it strange. He didn’t believe that she was going to help him for the rest of her life because he had saved her. But no matter how puzzled he was, it was clear that he would not find out the truth at the moment, so he could only go with the flow.
If the other held malicious aims against him, no one in the camp could stop her.
Zuo Mo could only comfort himself like so.
He decided to put his attention on what was in front of him. “In other words, this is ours now?”
“En.” Gongsun Cha nodded his head, and then added, “No one to compete with us.”
At the side, Xie Shan almost choked on air. That was a waste of words, of course no one was competing with them! Gongsun Cha had taken the group and conquered an area two thousand li in circumference, all of the powers had been plucked out one by one like they were nails. Even the xiuzhe who were hiding in the caves had not been let off. Lil’ Miss had sent out many small teams that combed the entire area.
“Great!” Zuo Mo’s eyebrows danced.
The people around him that were used to seeing his zombie face felt extremely unadjusted.
Boss’ face was more and more lively!
As they muttered inside, Xie Shan and the others waited for Boss’ next words.
After Lil’ Miss had left Boss’ place last time, the series of signs had shown that Boss was going to do something big!
It had to be said that Gongsun Cha had been very successful in his transformation of this group of lawless ruffians. The string of victories had increased their confidence, and the harder battles had tempered them and helped them complete the transformation. This troop, having been effected by a battle maniac like Gongsun Cha, always showed great offensive strength and desire for battle.
Having guessed that there was something big coming up, this group of people were full of anticipation!
Reality proved their speculation was correct.
Lil’ Miss had personally led the troops and carried out a blitzkrieg operation. All the powers in the area two thousand li in circumference around Sky Star Mountain were almost all taken out in the span of one night.
This was exhilarating for this group of battle-maniacs. The series of performance rewards, especially the spots for the sword formation, caused everyone to yearn about finding another eyesore and having a big battle!
“Then let’s build a city,” Zuo Mo sent down the order, but Xie Shan and the others stared at each other.
“Boss, you said to build a city?” Xie Shan probed.
“Yes. Build a big city. We are going to stay here for a while,” Zuo Mo said in a matter-of-fact voice.
“But we don’t know how to build a city!” Xie Shan frowned.
Zuo Mo rubbed his chin. “Oh, that is a problem.”
Very quickly, the camp received a second round of skill selection. With the example of the first round of selection before them, the qualifying round this time filled many people with anticipation since the reward from the first round had been a very enviable one.
Fourth-grade Golden Crow Fire!
But quickly, everyone exchanged looks in silence.
Build a city?
The ending was, no one knew how.
A headache instantly started. He knew how to make formations, but setting up formations and building a city were two different things. If the plan failed now, he would not be satisfied. He said to Gongsun Cha, “Send some people out to investigate where there are xiuzhe who know how to build cities! If they find one, no matter the method, they have to get the person back here.”
The first thing Gongsun Cha did after returning was to gather everyone together.
“Who knows where there would be xiuzhe that know how to build cities?”
After continuous battle, the number of xiuzhe in the camp had rolled like a snowball and reached seven hundred and thirty people. However, the true core of power, and the ones with highest attack power were the one or two hundred people that had been there since the beginning. The remaining xiuzhe needed time in order to become offensive fighters.
The benefit of more people was more information.
As expected, several people provided some related information. Gongsun Cha instantly sent people out to investigate immediately. The cataclysm in Little Mountain Jie had been very severe. Much of the information that had been provided were things they had known from before. Many were useless information that needed to be further investigated.
Just as Zuo Mo and the others were in a panic, Nan Sheng Village had opened.
He Xiang looked at the waves of people on the street with ambition. He felt his future prospects were a road of light. When he had heard that Clear Sky Sect had been hiring for the Outer Hall, he had went over at the first possible time.
After having survived so laboriously in Little Mountain Jie for so long, no one knew better than he did what the xiuzhe here needed, and were willing to pay for it. He had especially provided large amounts of suggestions to the sect, and received a good appraisal from the Old Forefather. He had personally been appointed by the Old Forefather as the Chief Elder and became one of the most important people in Little Mountain Jie in one step.
He had not failed Old Forefather’s hopes. He worked hard and diligently. His contribution in helping reconstruct Nan Sheng Village in just a few months could not be erased.
A few days ago, they had tried to sell ling grains. However, that was just the beginning. What would come next were the interactions with the different factions. That was the most important part of this battle which had no death. As long as he could handle these interactions cleanly, no one could shake his position as Chief Elder of the Outer Hall.
With the great weapon of ling grains in his hand, he was full of confidence about the upcoming battle!
Sky Moon Jie, a non-descript mountain valley was abnormally silent.
A figure landed from the sky. In a blink, it disappeared into the mountain valley.
This xiuzhe then appeared at the bottom of the valley. The bottom was covered in dense layers of jinzhi that would make people’s scalp prickle. It continued on for a long distance, and it was possible to see that the person who set down the jinzhi was an expert. It was not possible to see a hint from outside the valley.
This xiuzhe made his practiced way through the alarming jinzhi without even looking. With a few twists and turns, he headed straight to a cliff face.
The cliff face rippled and the person disappeared.
The scene instantly changed inside.
A seemingly borderless grass plain, a winding river. No one would have ever thought that such a large grass plain could be hidden in a mountain valley.
If someone saw such a strange place, they would have shouted in shock!
This was a secret realm!
Entering the secret realm, this xiuzhe’s expression instantly lightened. The thick ling power made him feel unspeakably comfortable. He flew straight towards the big river. There was a camp there.
A few xiuzhe flew out of the camp in welcome.
“Haha, you came back!” The xiuzhe in the welcoming entourage smiled as he gave a greeting. “Must have been difficult!”
“No way about it.” The xiuzhe who had just flown in said helplessly. “Got stuck with this mission. You guys have it easy, it seems you have made pretty good progress!”
“Haha!” All of the xiuzhe had proud expressions. “In the time you were gone, another two people entered ningmai. The ling energy here is just too thick!”
“That’s so good!” This xiuzhe was somewhat jealous.
“After this mission, you don’t have to worry and can just cultivate.”
“Hee hee, that’s true.”
“Quick, Leader is waiting for the news!”
The people instantly increased their speed as they flew towards the camp.
After landing, this xiuzhe instantly went to a tent.
“Come in!” A deep male voice.
He hurriedly walked into the tent, and respectfully bowed to the male inside. “Daren, I have come back.”
“It must have been great trouble for you!” The male inside the tent raised his face and said in a warm tone.
If Zuo Mo saw this person, he would definitely recognize who it was.
Bo Feng, the mysterious competitor that had appeared at the Sword Test Conference, a person of mysterious power. It had been him who had bought the location of the secret sect from Zuo Mo.
He had actually stayed behind in Sky Moon Jie!
Translator Ramblings: So a new character arrives and has great plans for Little Mountain Jie. If Clear Sky Sect can have a village, why can’t Zuo Mo build a city? Another peek back to Sky Moon Jie. Bo Feng is still alive and pops back in after almost 100 chapters.

Thanks for the chapter!
noooo 1st why
Thanks for the chapter
Thanks for the chapter
I really want to know why that female jindan follows Zuo Mo … is she bored? xD
Must be the bald head.
Thanks for the new chapter!
“With the great weapon of ling grains in his hand, he was full of confidence about the upcoming battle!”
ohoo! it seem there is some wanna compete P2W item against ZuoMo
Foolish Zuo Mo! Make a formation city!
Build the city in the shape of a formation!
Well, if before it was speculation, now it’s confirmed. xD
well duh it is Zou Mo we are talking about here. He is starting to breath formations.
Thanks for the chapter.
This Bo Feng must come from a big sect , he’s talent aside ,he seems to have even more knowledge than some Jindan .
I love how in WoC , they actually have sustainability problems and even if you are powerful , you can’t do everything. There exist roles .
When i read Xianxa i sometimes wonder how can they keep extracting resourses for millions of years , without actually running out of it (spirit stones , demon bests , energies )
That’s true, but if you look closer, you find that a lot of the places that the main characters go to are isolated or tombs. They literally rob graves to get the resources they need or places that have not been exploited already.
Another scenario is that the world is mainly unexplored so they are at a place where development is not so high, like humans before the industrial revolution.
Why not build the city as a formation? Also, didn’t Zuo Mo and his two friends build a city already? Or did they leave that to other people while focusing on their own things?
It sounds like they should kidnap this Eldest Elder fellow 😉
thanks for the chapter
Bo Feng… I had almost forgot about him. And that story arc with the secret realm that the Black Wind Bandits were chasing after, which eventually ended up in Bo Feng’s hands. So it was a plot point for the future…
Bo Feng’s story arc hasn’t ended yet. This is still more setting up.
Thanks for the chapter
Ai. I finally caught up. the end of a binge read leaves you with an empty feeling in your heart. thanks for all the chapters till now and for all the chapters to come!
Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
I wonder what does Zuo Mo means by building a city..
Lol.. does building a city and building an outpost like the one in little mountain jie differ between each other?
Probably for counterattack them with a surprise attack
Thanks for the chapter!
So they’ve turned the wandering Xiuzhe who just wanted to live in peace into battle crazed troops that’s completely out for blood….
Thanks for the chapter!
But Bo Feng, didnt he leave after the guys who had the secret? how did he came back to Sky Moon Jie, if the only way was through the place where Zu Mo was, but the yao is there now… how did he do it!? So many questions…
Zuo Mo gave him the location so he just stayed in Sky Moon Jie.
But I thought Zuo Mo gave the location of those 3 people who had the secret, then he went after them in the jie river
No. The three people were not important. They just took the materials from the secret realm. What Bo Feng wanted was the location to make his hideaway as seen in this chapter. That’s what he traded for with Zuo Mo. It’s pretty obvious for the Black Wind Bandits and Bo Feng’s group that the three people went into the jie river. The Black Wind Bandits attacked Desolate Wood Reef because they were defeated by Wei Sheng and wanted to get even.
Oh I see… you have a great memory to remember all this xD
The Blackwind bandits also had the intel he traded the location of the secret realm for the news of the war and his sect basically abandoning him. The 3 that ran away “only” had the items/materials that were inside the secret realm. The blackwind bandits didn’t have a use for a secret realm because well they are bandits settling down will likely get them killed so they went after the items instead.
Thanks for the chapter WYHCWE, WanderingGummiOfDoom, and warlord212!
nice bringing in city planners to build a small city. how do you defend it wall and our favorite bit formations. Make the enemy come to you and Zou Mo with enough resources will destroy them.
thanks for the chapters please keep the adventure flowing
The other bit is this is starting to feel like a call and response bit. Zou Mo Call for a city and the Lil Miss makes it happen. Vision – realization. Words to actions. Wishes to commands.
I like this contrast to most cultivation stories where they just fart and palaces just come into existence.
Curious why he isn’t just re-purposing a abandoned city or sect instead should be large enough, no? And yeah nice synergy going on between the two. 😀
You’ll find out why he wants to build a city soon. 🙂
Fart and palaces are created … … that’s really great imagery.
Thanks for the chapter!
thanks for the chapter!
Any bets that when they leave Mountain Jie that the combat units (three talent formation units) stay together as they go doing what they do.
“The damaged walls had been reconstructed and it only took span of a few months for this place to recover its prosperity.” > Add “a” or “the” before “span”.
“Just this was enough to cause all of Little Mountain Jie to shake” > Missing punctuation at the end.
“Xie Shan frowned..” > Remove extra period.
Let’s build a city. Or steal one. I’m assuming that “city” impiles a walled one.
Ge is really freaked out by the creepy lady and not thinking straight. He should just use her to fight his way out of the jie.
translator-san.. effected -> affected??
as always thank you for the amazing chapter :3
Thank you so much!! 😘😘😘
I swear Bo Feng was Fu Feng or something before. Ah well.
The special place location thag he brought is actually a chaotic thing. I qn calling it.
I keep imagining Zuo Mo as Saitama wth.
Zuo mo is really out there building cities xD
