ITDO - Chapter 100 - Probing the Godhood
For Louie, the world of San Soliel was chock-full of mysteries. Things were so radically different from Earth that he felt the need to fully codify his understanding. This would in turn allow him to interact with its elements more smoothly.
If this training method is correct and in line with the rules of the world, then soldiers from Earth should be able to quickly train until the third rank. A legion full of third rank warriors is practically elite here. Likely only a few countries can match it.
‘These soldiers need to be full-time. I can’t let them waste all their training so far on the farm.’
As Louie pondered, he scratched his cheek with a claw.
‘We’ll need a large number of resources to raise a standing army. From my understanding, very few powers can afford to do that. Nonetheless, it shouldn’t be a huge issue for me. We have food for days. We can easily prioritize the quality of soldiers over their quantity.’
‘With Dragon City’s geographical location, as long as there are ten thousand elite soldiers and enough supplies, then there is no need to be afraid in the face of a hundred thousand strong siege. Moreover, the enemy can only attack from one direction.’
‘When the soldiers train to the limit, maybe I can find some excuse to invade other races or countries. I don’t need to occupy the land. I just need to keep their skills polished enough so that they remain a potent force.’
‘If there was a legion of ten thousand middle-ranking professionals, it would be a nightmare for any country to face. As for a legion of high-ranking professionals… Well, we’re still far away from that now. The difficulty of becoming one is too high… Going from the sixth rank to the seventh is far more than I can request of most people.’
According to Louie, the only powers that could have a legion of middle-ranking professionals were the Theicracy and the human empire. As for the other kingdoms, they could barely make one if they pooled their forces.
As for the beastmen and other races, there was no need to think about it. Their battle styles were too different from humans.
‘I should also take advantage of the perks of having to be a multi-racial city. I will place them in positions where they can display their full abilities. The elves can be archers and the humans and beastmen can take the plains.’
Louie pondered for a long time and finally constructed a proper plan for the future.
When he came back to his senses, Lysfer was still kneeling in front of him. After thinking for a moment, he spoke with a majestic voice, “You will begin training them tomorrow, you can go back to rest… Lysfer, make great contributions to Dragon City and train those soldiers to the level that I need.”
Lysfer had been kneeling on the ground for almost an hour, but she did not dare become impudent at the great lord’s silence. When Louie suddenly opened his eyes and spoke, his words stunned her.
She froze for two seconds and felt disbelief at Louie’s words.
‘Did he just let me go? I don’t need to serve him tonight?’
She thought dumbly. She thought that she had to give her body to the dragon after being left alone for a long time at this hour. She didn’t expect the dragon to let her go back to rest.
The world girl collected her thoughts, bowed her head, and respectfully said, “By your will, milord.”
Lysfer stood up with her head still lowered. Only after slowly backing to the door did she turn around and leave.
After exiting the palace, the cool breeze of the night blew on her body. She stood at the highest point of the city while looking at the city. Then she raised her head to gaze at the silver moon and muttered, “The lord is more frightening than I imagined.”
“As a dragon, the lord was actually able to restrain his desires. This is really incredible.”
Under the vigilant gaze of the elven guards, Lysfer moved away and left the place with a sigh of relief. Tomorrow, she would be the chief instructor in charge of drilling the soldiers. Lysfer liked this job very much because she could use it as an excuse to train. She could also give the soldiers a good beating.
She loved to fight. She loved war!
Since the humans were new recruits, she would beat them lightly. She could be a bit more forceful to the beastmen and beat them half-dead. As for the elves, she would beat them to death if they did not obey.
With a joyous expression, her figure disappeared in the darkness.
After the wolf girl left, Louie sighed with a heavy breath.
The great dragon lord muttered. He was both happy and a little annoyed with his current life.
Louie was once an ordinary social animal in China. He was not some protagonist so he didn’t really know how to act.
At the start, he relied on his past eighth-grade syndrome and was able to fool others with it. Thanks to this, he was able to live a steady life. As the dragon lord, he needed to maintain enough authority at the top. There were just words that he could not say which was his biggest test.
When no one was looking, Louie was practicing and imitating the speech of people that were of higher status and then performing it in front of everyone.
Fortunately, no one dared to suspect that he was just acting with his identity as a demigod dragon. The more he acted, the more he noticed that he was gaining a bit of majesty.
It’s just like the old saying, status and temperament could change a person’s temperament, and consecration could change a person’s physique.
After talking to himself, Louie frowned.
The development of Dragon City was for the purpose of establishing his own church and gaining many believers, but he needed to avoid conflating his ends and means. Compared to the number of believers in the future, what he needed to place the most importance on was his own strength. As long as he was strong, believers would naturally appear.
‘It seems that the godhood trembled earlier… I should really check this out.’
Thinking about this, Louie dived deep into his consciousness and entered the depths of his soul. In the endless darkness, he saw the shapeless, multicolored, indescribable crystal.
This was what countless mortals in the world of San Soliel dreamed of obtaining, a godhood!
After a bit of thinking, Louie injected a bit of his will into the godhood.
‘Let’s see what changes have appeared.’
Just as he thought of this, his mind and soul shook!
As if pushing a heavy door open, countless colors appeared in Louie’s eyes. Those colors appeared to have been a collection of the laws of this world that contained endless knowledge and power.
Among them, the colors that belonged to Louie were revealed to him.
Louie was shocked as five colors were displayed in front of him.
