Even though the factions around Great Qin were all quite powerful, Great Qin was still the most powerful. Right now, Great Qin had 2,000 City Lords, and its might covered the surrounding 1,000 or so regions. It had to be known that China's northern side only had 2,000 regions or so in total.
With Great Qin expressing its goodwill, not a single faction did not dare to accept it. Even those who hated players had to choose to establish friendly relations with Great Qin.
With the appearance of harmony on the outside, Zhao Fu started to clear out regions and construct the Great Wall. Great Qin once again fell silent, quietly expanding as it waited for its chance to bare its fangs.
A few days later, Great Qin prepared 250 million coffins and placed them in the Yin Qi Formation in an orderly fashion. The soldiers lying in the coffins all gave off a faint might, as they were all Stage 1 soldiers. Such a massive gathering of corpses was quite a spectacular scene.
When so many corpses were placed in the Yin Qi Formation, an extremely terrifying shockwave rippled out as if there was something terrifying being birthed, and the entire region was covered by this terrifying aura.
Traces of Yin Qi rose up from the ground, and ordinary people who stepped into this region would feel an extremely cold chill, making them tremble. No amount of clothes could stop this coldness, and if they stayed here for a long time, their bodies would be corroded by the Yin Qi, resulting in death.
This region had already become a region of Yin Qi, and no living creature could reside here. Zhao Fu had long since relocated all of the people here to another region, and all of the wild beasts had sensed the danger and escaped as well.
Sensing this shockwave, Zhao Fu felt quite surprised because he could sense that what the Yin Qi Formation was producing was not countless Ghost Soldiers, and the shockwaves were not caused by the corpses.
Traces of aura floated out of the coffins and gathered at the center of the Ghost Seal Formation. A large portion of the Yin Qi gathered by the Yin Qi Formation was absorbed by the Ghost Seal Formation, and much of the aura of bloodthirstiness gathered by the Ghost Army Flag and various Gravestones also gathered within the Ghost Seal Formation.
The Ghost Seal Formation was at the center of those terrifying shockwaves, and the thing being produced was going through changes because of the countless soldiers' auras, the boundless Yin Qi, and aura of bloodthirstiness. It would be an extremely terrifying thing.
Zhao Fu looked at the Ghost Commander Seals, Ghost Marquis Seals, and Ghost King Seal, and there seemed to be no problem with them.
At that moment, the Ghost King Seal suddenly gave off an intense gray light, and it seemed to start to melt. This made Zhao Fu feel quite startled - if the Ghost King Seal melted, what would happen? Zhao Fu did not know what was happening, so he prepared to stop it.
"Wait!" the golden dragon suddenly said.
Seeing that the golden dragon had stopped him, Zhao Fu wondered if it knew something and asked, "What's going on? Why is this happening?"
The golden dragon replied simply, "I have no idea either!"
This made Zhao Fu roll his eyes, and he said, "Why are you stopping me if you don't know what's going on either?"
The golden dragon replied seriously, "Even though I don't know what's going on, my instincts tell me that it's best not to stop what's happening. Within this valley, the Yin Qi Formation, coffins, gravestones, and flag have all fused together and are absorbing Yin energy from the Underworld.
"If you stop this, something might happen, and everything here might be destroyed."
Hearing the golden dragon's words, Zhao Fu could only stop. He sighed and asked, "What should I do? I can't just stand here and watch; who knows what will happen?"
The golden dragon thought before replying, "Zhao Fu, take out some of your blood and fuse it with the Ghost King Seal. No matter what happens, you'll be in control."
Hearing this, Zhao Fu nodded. He cut open his palm, causing blood to flow out and turn into an orb of blood, which he controlled and fused into the Ghost King Seal.
Nothing surprising happened, and there was no resistance. After absorbing Zhao Fu's blood, the Ghost King Seal seemed to give off an aura of delight.
After a while, Zhao Fu stopped giving out blood because the Ghost King Seal seemed to be content. Zhao Fu's face was quite pale and he looked slightly skinnier. He quickly took out some recovery medicinal pills and consumed them.
Zhao Fu looked heavily wounded, as he had let out so much blood.
The Ghost King Seal was still changing, and even greater Yin Qi started to gather. Zhao Fu was not sure what sort of terrifying thing was being created, but he hoped it would not affect the creation of Ghost Soldiers.
After returning to the Great Qin City, Zhao Fu focused on recovering, and his complexion regained some color. Following this, he started to take care of other matters.
A month later, Zhao Fu was sitting under a tall willow tree as he fished in a small creek when he suddenly received a system announcement, "Congratulations! Great Qin has leveled up into a Level 6 Capital City!"
Hearing this system announcement, Zhao Fu felt delighted and put away the fishing rod before going to the City Hall to look at the Great Qin City's new stats.
Village Name: Great Qin City (Epic)
Level: Level 5 Capital City (628,000/1,200,000,000)

Subsidiary Village Limit: 446,930
Subordinate Villages: Logue Village, Jean Village, Dorun Village, Li Family Village, Wolf Village, Ferocious Tiger Village...
The Great Qin City was finally a Level 6 Capital City. Zhao Fu felt an incredible sense of achievement: Great Qin had become a Level 6 Capital City from just a Basic Village. After experiencing so much, they were finally about to establish a Kingdom.
They now required 1.2 billion EXP to level up from a Level 6 Capital City into a Royal City. After obtaining this amount of EXP, the Great Qin City would be able to become a Royal City.
Even though 1.2 billion EXP was an enormous figure, it was the final step. Great Qin had fulfilled all of the other conditions and only lacked EXP. Zhao Fu did not feel worried - Great Qin had been able to obtain 800 million EXP for the previous level-up quite easily, so 1.2 billion EXP would not be too difficult to obtain either.
After a month, Great Qin had only cleared out roughly one-third of the empty regions, and there were still many regions to be cleared out, which could give Great Qin a large amount of EXP.
Over the past month, countless system main cities became unable to use their neutral mode. Some players paid a heavy death toll to finally attack the system main cities, and Zhao Fu prepared to officially make a move against Vietnam. This would also provide Great Qin with a large amount of EXP.
