Wei Xin lowered his head and thought to himself. Zhao Fu gave him some time, and five or six minutes later, Zhao Fu once again asked, "Are you willing to submit to Great Qin?"
"Your Majesty, please don't! We're willing to die with the State of Wei!" When Wei Xin was about to agree, countless residents cried out to him in grief and fury.
Wei Xin paused and slowly turned to look at his subjects, and his gaze became resolute as he looked at Zhao Fu and said, "We're willing to submit!"
Following this, Wei Xin kneeled on both knees, and the State of Wei residents could only watch as he paid his respects to Zhao Fu.
This action seemed to cause the heavens and earth to tremble, and it became windy as clouds moved around, signaling that most of the State of Wei's Fate had been lost.
Ten or so traces of violet thread-like auras rose from Wei Xin's body and floated towards Zhao Fu, fusing into his King's Crown. The King's Crown lightly trembled and gave off a golden light as it rose from Gray grade to White grade.
The violet dragon in the sky painfully cried as its horns, claws, and whiskers started to disappear.
Afterward, all that was left was a 30-meter long violet python in the air. Apart from its head, which looked a bit like a dragon, its body looked like a python. Even though the violet dragon had devolved into a python, it was still above normal pythons and could be called a Python Dragon that was slightly inferior to Flood Dragons.
Zhao Fu waved his hand, and the black dragon that was still savagely gazing at the violet python returned to Zhao Fu's body. Zhao Fu looked down at Wei Xin and said, "You may rise! I give to you the title Lord Wei, and this title may be passed down to your descendants."
The violet python in the sky descended and returned to Wei Xin's body, and Wei Xin raised his head and thanked Zhao Fu, saying hoarsely, "Thank you, Your Majesty, for the title!"
Seeing this, the State of Wei's residents could only put down their weapons and also submit to Great Qin.
Zhao Fu descended from the sky and landed on the eastern town wall. He looked at Wei Xin, who looked dispirited, and said, "Don't worry. Now that the State of Wei belongs to Great Qin, I won't mistreat you. Even though the State of Wei has lost its status as a nation, with your title of Lord, you will still be a top-tier family in Great Qin."
Hearing this, Wei Xin looked slightly better, and he once again bowed to Zhao Fu.
Afterward, Wei Xin led Zhao Fu to the Town's City Heart. Now that Wei Xin had submitted, the violet energy barrier had disappeared.
Zhao Fu placed his hand on the City Heart and chose to conquer it, and a violet pillar of light shot into the sky. Sorrowful drum sounds rang out nine times, and they reverberated across the entirety of the northern side of the Midland Continent.
The leaders of all of the factions in the northern side of the Midland Continent were greatly startled, and they rushed outside. They all looked towards where the sound was coming from, which was where the State of Wei's Town was.
The sound of these drums was different than the grieved cry of a dragon, and it signaled that what had happened to Great Shun hadn't happened in this case. The drums sounding out nine times signified that a Legatee hadn't died. Instead, it meant that a Legatee had submitted to another faction.
Just who could make a Legatee submit?
Everyone thought of a single name, which was Great Qin! Apart from Great Qin, there was no other faction in the north that could do such a thing.
Countless leaders immediately returned to the real world and looked at the map of the Heaven Awaken World, and they confirmed something terrifying - this was that Great Qin's Legatee could cross regions!
All of the factions in the Midland Continent were terrified, and they started to worry about their safety. If Great Qin could cross regions, then there wouldn't be a safe place in the northern area of the Midland Continent.
Xianru stood on Great Qin City's Heaven Prayer Platform and looked towards where the State of Wei's Town was. When she felt a massive amount of Fate enter Great Qin, a trace of a smile appeared on her face.
The Twelve Metal Colossi and the Imperial Ruler's Seal next to the City Heart gave off a piercing light. After absorbing the State of Wei's Fate, they had once again leveled up.
A formless wave of energy rippled out as the Twelve Metal Colossi rose to Level 4 and the Imperial Ruler's Seal rose to Level 3.
Back at the State of Wei's Town, after Zhao Fu chose to conquer it, announcements started to sound out in his head.
"System announcement! The State of Wei has submitted, and all of its Fate has been devoured by Great Qin. Great Qin has obtained a large amount of Fate."
"System announcement! Great Qin has conquered the State of Wei and obtained all of the State of Wei's Legacies."
"System announcement! The Great Qin City has obtained one-fifth of the State of Wei Town's stats."
"System announcement! The Great Qin's City Heart has started to evolve, and it has completed 1/30 of the evolution."
"System announcement! The Nation Armament Twelve Metal Colossi has become a Level 4 Nation Armament."
"System announcement! The Clan Armament Imperial Ruler's Seal has become a Level 3 Clan Armament."
"System announcement! You have conquered a Legacy Town and obtained 3,000 Achievement Points."
"System Announcement! You have obtained 100 War Points."
When he heard this chain of system announcements, Zhao Fu smiled. Out of all of the system announcements, Zhao Fu only cared about two of them: one was the Great Qin's City Heart evolving - after all, it was already Epic grade.
However, it seemed that evolving it would be quite difficult - he would have to force or destroy 30 Legatees.
When he thought of how rare and powerful Legatees were, he could see how difficult this would be. However, since it was so difficult, if the City Heart evolved again, its stats would definitely be quite powerful.
The second thing was the Achievement Points. With the bonuses from the King's Ring, it had boosted Zhao Fu's status to Earl, fulfilling one of the conditions to upgrading the Great Qin City to a Great City.
Now, Zhao Fu needed three Viscounts and six Barons to raise the Great Qin City to a Great City. Currently, Zhao Fu had one Viscount and four Barons, so he needed two more Viscounts and two more Barons.
After conquering the State of Wei's Town, Zhao Fu looked at the stats and found that they were similar to the Great Shun Town's. The stats were better than a normal Gold grade Town's, and the State of Wei's Town also had a special stat.
[Lord Wei Xin]: Increases the chance of spawning high-grade people, people with special professions, and people with high Loyalty.
This stat was the State of Wei's special stat, which was what Zhao Fu was after. Because he hadn't fully destroyed the Town, many of its structures, like the Heaven Prayer Platform, could still be leveled up.
As such, it could be seen that having a Legatee submit was much better than killing one.
After taking care of all of these matters, Zhao Fu gathered his army and prepared to return to the Great Qin City. He didn't plan to relocate the State of Wei's Town or move many people.
