These ten or so people were the leaders of the largest factions in this region, so if he could control them, they would be of great help if he wanted to attack cities in the future.
If Zhao Fu wanted to upgrade the Great Qin City into a Royal City, he would have to take down many system main cities. Since players wouldn't die true deaths and there were many of them, it would be a waste not to use this power.
Zhao Fu glanced at the crippled people on the ground and took out the Royal Wood Sword as he said, "I'll give you all a chance to submit to me. If you're willing to submit, you'll receive unimaginable benefits!"
The ten or so people on the ground hated Zhao Fu with every fiber of their being - after all, he had just made them go through immense suffering and humiliated them by forcing them to call him Grandaddy.
However, now, Zhao Fu wanted them to submit to him - how could they be willing? However, just as they hated Zhao Fu with every fiber of their being, they also feared him to the same degree. They didn't dare to say anything and could only silently lay on the ground.
"Just kill us!" the Wu family's leader powerlessly said. Right now, he just wanted to die and be free from this suffering.
"You really want to die? Everyone else would beg to submit to me but don't have the opportunity!" Zhao Fu's voice started to sound regal and dignified.
Hearing Zhao Fu's words, the ten or so people on the ground started to realize why even though Zhao Fu was also a player, he had such immense power. They were curious as to Zhao Fu's identity but still unwilling to submit.
"Are you sure you don't want to submit to Great Qin?" Zhao Fu's voice became even colder.
The ten or so people on the ground all looked up and said, "Wait, Great Qin?"
Hearing these two forbidden words, the ten or so people on the ground couldn't help but react in shock. In front of factions like theirs, Great Qin was an almighty existence.
"Could it be that he's really Great Qin's legendary Legatee? That makes sense! No wonder he's so powerful and vicious."
"Are you really Great Qin's Legatee?" the Wu family's leader asked with a trace of fear and awe as he looked up. To people like them, Great Qin's Legatee was someone who was completely sovereign and supreme over them.
"What do you think? In this world, who would dare to impersonate me?" Zhao Fu knew that unless he let them know of his identity, it would be impossible for them to submit.
When they heard Zhao Fu confirm this, the attitudes of the ten or so people completely changed, making them seem incredibly humble.
"I'm willing to submit." The Wu family's leader was the first to speak, completely disregarding what had just happened. Who cared about that pain and humiliation? Calling others Grandaddy was indeed humiliation, but calling Great Qin's Legatee Grandaddy was a sort of honor. If they could rely on Great Qin, their families would have an incredibly solid backer.
"Yes, yes! We're also willing to submit!" The others hurriedly expressed this as well - this would bring them immeasurable benefits, and they were excited to the point that they had forgotten their pain.
Seeing this, Zhao Fu felt quite satisfied and sent his King's Power into the Royal Wood Sword. Countless translucent green threads came out of the sword, stretching towards the legs of the ten or so people. The green threads connected their bodies and legs, healing them completely.
After Zhao Fu healed their legs, he threw ten or so bottles of medicinal pills to them. These weren't filled with medicinal pills but Hidden Evil.
Zhao Fu couldn't fully trust them; he was only using them to attack cities, so he had to leave something as a backup. The ten or so people could guess that there was something wrong with these medicinal pills, but they still swallowed them.
They knew that after what had just happened, it would be difficult for them to earn Great Qin's Legatee's trust. Since they wanted to obtain Zhao Fu's protection, they had to pay a price for it.
"You can all leave now. I'll contact you if there's anything." Seeing them obediently swallow the Hidden Evil pills, Zhao Fu allowed them to leave. Because he had used all of the equipment and medicinal pills he had brought to trade with Westpan City, he was unable to give them any benefits just yet. Following this, he turned into a ray of light and disappeared over the horizon.
The ten or so people were incredibly excited and returned to their factions. When their subordinates saw them return, they felt quite shocked; they had all heard that the army of 10,000 had been scared into running and that their leaders' legs had been cut off. However, they looked completely fine and even quite excited!
Afterward, the ten or so people told their core members about joining Great Qin, causing the factions to feel incredibly joyful. Great Qin was an existence that reigned far above them, and joining Great Qin would bring them unimaginable benefits.
In actuality, if Zhao Fu just announced that he was Great Qin's Legatee, he would be able to gather a massive number of people to him. However, it was difficult to control too many people, and it would be impossible to make sure that everyone was truly loyal.
After returning to Great Qin, Zhao Fu took care of some other matters. Now, Great Qin had returned to a period of steady development, and what they lacked most was time. Most of the things that they wanted to do required a lot of time.
For example, the Wyvern egg would take another two months to hatch, raising the soldiers' cultivation took time, and allowing his weapons and medicinal pills to circulate through Westpan City also required time.
Zhao Fu didn't have too much to do personally - internal affairs had been handed to Li Si and Shang Yang. With Shang Yang, the burden on Li Si was much lighter, and Zhao Fu had more free time.
Zhao Fu went to a small creek and sat under a willow tree as he fished with the One World Rod and cultivated. There were a few beautiful female attendants by his side, waiting for any orders.
Suddenly, Zhao Fu frowned and immediately closed his eyes, immersing himself in his cultivation. A muffled explosion sounded out as if something had been destroyed, and Zhao Fu's body trembled as a powerful energy swept out of him.
Zhao Fu had finally broken through from Stage 1 to Stage 2. He continued training for a while and steadied his cultivation before taking out a Blood God Pill and consuming it. This was a Stage 3 Blood God Pill that required a Stage 3 corpse to refine.
After consuming the Blood God Pill, a massive wave of cultivation energy spread out within Zhao Fu's body, and Zhao Fu quickly refined this energy.
At the same time, Zhao Fu's cultivation rapidly increased: Stage 2-1, 2-2, 2-3... in the end, Zhao Fu's cultivation rose to Stage 2-4. The Blood God Pill's effects were quite extraordinary, allowing him to increase his cultivation to Stage 2-4 instantly. Now, Zhao Fu needed to continue cultivating by himself.
This was because Blood God Pills of each stage could only be used once by each person. If they could continuously use Blood God Pills, Zhao Fu would be able to create an army of peerless experts.
Zhao Fu breathed out a breath of impure air and opened his eyes. It was already night, and the attendants had lit lanterns.
At that moment, there seemed to be something tugging at the fishing line. Zhao Fu raised the rod, and a small silver fish appeared before him - it looked quite rare.
"Your Majesty, this subordinate has something to report." Wang Ergou, who had been waiting by the side, walked up and cupped his hands.
Zhao Fu nodded, and after listening to what Wang Ergou had to say, a look of delight appeared on his face. He put away the One World Rod and stood up because the news was regarding a Town.
