I, The Dragon Overlord Chapter 27 - Let’s Be Capitalist

“You can go, Marches; I wish to rest. For now, I leave the city in your hands... If there is anyone who dares resist, kill them immediately.”

Louie closed his eyes while lying on the mountain of gold. The master-slave contract they had signed meant that Marches’ loyalty was guaranteed, and even some of his thoughts were made known to Louie. Louie could definitely trust him.

“Yes, great master!”

Marches bowed. Dragons loved to slumber, and in fact, they spent the majority of their lives doing so. He just hoped that this would be a brief nap and not a rest that lasted several years.

“Manage the city well, and maybe I’ll reward you if I’m in a good mood.”

Louie opened an eye and stared at the mage while he spoke in a majestic tone.

As for what the reward was, Louie did not say anything at all. He would let this man’s imagination stew for a bit.

“It is my honor to serve you. How could I dare covet the Great Master’s grace?”

Marches was flustered. Shivering with excitement he forced himself to keep a solemn and respectful expression.

‘Lord God of Magic! A dragon, a member of a species famed for its greed is actually willing to reward its servant?! Is this really a dragon? This can’t be real, right!! Are primordial dragons really that different?!’

After Marches left, Louie began to think up his next plan of action.

The city needed development. But if he was going to do it, it needed to be done well.

After spending seven years in high school and university altogether, Louie felt he was in a much better position to decide how to develop the city than the natives. This was despite his lack of management experience.

The development could not be haphazard. It had to be structured and with a grand vision in mind.

The original Central City had changed owners many times over millennia. But no matter which race captured the city, they would often only use it as a frontline strategic outpost.

Since the city was easy to defend, it did not have many troops within it. Properly stationed, a few thousand soldiers could repel small armies. And even if an enemy launched a major offensive, Central City’s location meant sending in reinforcements was quite simple for most powers. Every conflict centered around it would involve powerful legendary rank warriors, and some stories even mentioned demigods getting involved.

Regardless, one thing was certain. And that was that each battle would leave countless casualties.

This time Louie had easily captured the city since he caught the Theocracy by surprise. The Theocracy might have been vigilant against elves, bea
