Soon after, the first batch of gremlin servants was finally produced.
Gremlins were thin and not tall which was similar to goblins. They had yellow skin, sharp nails, and wore simple clothes. Although they looked ugly, they were neat and tidy. Compared with the magic talents of the lamp spirits, gremlins’ talents were more peculiar. They could turn their claws into various tools for measurement, calculation, and repair, which were convenient for work.
Chen Rui was quite lucky. There was a gremlin supervisor among the 100 gremlin servants. The gremlin supervisor was a bit bigger, the skin was tawny, and the clothes looked different. There was an item similar to magnifying glasses in his hand, which had the ability to control the gremlin servants, allocate teams and time reasonably to greatly improve efficiency. It could also repair and manufacture higher grade items.
Gremlins were not suitable for fighting as they were timid, but they were excellent craftsmen. Even the senior goblin warriors were much inferior.
Now Chen Rui had become the ruler of the castle. All the alchemy beings of the City of Stars could sense the special imprint breath of the “master”. Even the newly produced gremlin servants were no exception. The supervisor led the 100 gremlin servants to kneel down and salute, “Master.”
Seeing these gremlin servants, Chen Rui envisioned a huge army, and he was very energetic, “From now on, your name is Ludo, and there will be 2,900 gremlin servants produced in the future. You will be the leader of this group of 3,000 gremlin servants.
“Yes, thank you master for naming.” Ludo bowed down respectfully. “Immediately start repairing the castle facilities and the damaged crystal beasts, assemble puppets and giant crystal beasts. If necessary, create more gremlin servants. I want to see the resurrection of the guardians and the guards as soon as possible.”
Ludo thought for a while, took out a piece of paper and quickly wrote on it. After a while, he handed it forward, “To repair the facilities and guards as soon as possible, the gremlin servants must be mass-produced. In addition to energy, these materials are also needed. Please take a look, master.”
Chen Rui ran through and found that there were hundreds of materials listed, and he never heard of most of them. The ambitions in his heart were suddenly extinguished by half.
“By the way, in addition, the body materials of gremlin servants also need to be supplemented, otherwise it will only be enough to produce 5,000 gremlins at most.” Ludo took out a list and gave it to Chen Rui, making him distressed again. The list consisted of different kinds of meat and plants which were unfamiliar to him.
Chen Rui finally saw a familiar name: low-grade energy fruit. He reminisced when he first met the lamp spirits, the lamp spirits were fighting against the medusas for the snake blood fruit. This kind of snake blood fruit was called low-grade energy fruit by the lamp spirits. He had a thought. The ancient alchemy civilization has disappeared for many years. Many items may have changed their names. He immediately took out a pile of alchemy materials from the storage warehouse, “Ludo, do you know these things?”
“T-crystal! Black rain stone! Green damask wood…” Ludo reported each of them. The names were really different from what Chen Rui knew. Chen Rui was finally relieved. It seems that my guess is right. This way, the restoration of the castle and other matters are quite promising.
Chen Rui took out all types of materials and the seed samples obtained at the plant trade fair last time. After Ludo’s identification, most of the materials on the list were matched. Ludo also found some substitutes with similar compound requirements. At least, they could complete the restoration of the castle and the manufacture of gremlin servants. This was also thanks to Chen Rui’s storage warehouse in the Super System. Otherwise, he would not be able to produce so many materials. However, the complete variety was 1 thing, and the quantity was another. Especially for some main materials, the quantity required by Ludo was quite large. There were not so many in the storage warehouse, so he must find a way to gather them as soon as possible.
The repair of the crystal beasts and assemble puppets was a bit more troublesome as there were a lot of materials missing. With Chen Rui’s mechanical attainments, coupled with the identification function of [Analytical Eyes], he carefully studied with Ludo and sorted out a set of plans. Most of them could be replaced with similar materials. Only 2 materials couldn’t be replaced. 1 was blue star heavy water for the assemble puppets, and the other was phantom coral for the giant crystal demonic beasts. Phantom coral was not only an essential material for the manufacturing and repairing of giant crystal demonic beasts, it was also 1 of the materials for the giant crystal beasts.
The giant crystal beast was the strongest guardian and war machine, but the manufacturing process was much more subtle and complicated than ordinary alchemy beings. 10 gremlin supervisors were required to complete the repair of a giant crystal beast. In addition to the phantom coral, it also required a lot of mystic crystals.
Mystic crystals were high-purity gold crystals made by the secret method. There were many gold crystals in the storage warehouse. With the Super System’s refining room, he could make mystic crystals of the highest purity. The giant crystal beasts were undoubtedly very expensive, but once they were resurrected, the combat power they offered was also quite huge.
The only pity was that there were only 10 giant crystal beasts that could be repaired, and the rest couldn’t be repaired. If he wanted to re-manufacture them, in addition to more gremlin supervisors, he also needed the most important core material – Dragon Power Essence.
Dragon Power Essence was the essence of the dragon soul that had not dissipated after death. It contained the dragon demeanor and part of the soul power of the dragons. Except for the mysterious Dragon Island, such a thing couldn’t be found elsewhere. It was also 1 of the 2 essential materials for Guradam to be promoted to Demon Overlord. Even so, with Chen Rui’s current strength, he couldn’t break into Dragon Island. That place was the nest of giant dragons where even Demi-God dared not invade!
It seems that the plan to make the giant crystal beast can only be postponed indefinitely. I need to solve the crystal beasts and assemble puppets issues first. If I can find the phantom corals, I can also repair the 10 giant beasts which is also a very powerful combat power.
After making up his mind, Chen Rui left the 100 lamp spirits to assist the gremlins in repairing the castle facilities. He left the mine with the remaining 2,000 lamp spirits.
Chen Rui found the medusa tribe stationed in the White Feather City, then he headed south toward the capital with the medusa tribe and lamp spirits. There was no obstacle to entering the capital because, during this period, the White Feather Estate soldiers who were stationed in the capital were frequently mobilized. Chen Rui had instructed Sicali earlier, and with the cooperation of the capital’s secret intelligence department controlled by Isabella, the lamp spirits and medusas, totaling close to 5,000 of them, entered the secret barrack of the capital as the White Feather Estate Army late at night.
Chen Rui left the medusas and the lamp spirits in the barrack. He only took Queen Medusa and Genie into the palace.
At this time, the guards in the palace were replaced by the original crew of the Dark Moon, but due to the limited number of people, the defense force was quite limited.
In the palace, Chen Rui saw Her Majesty Empress, Ms. Secret Intelligence and Ms. Scientist, whom he had not seen for many days. Perhaps these 3 women temporarily united and planned to have a 3-juries trial when they heard a man returning with nearly 5,000 females.
This was not to blame Chen Rui as medusas were only females and the lamp spirits were all beauties.
“This is the lamp spirit you are talking about?” When Shea glanced at Genie, her eyes flashed with shock, “There are 72 Demon Emperor-level lamp spirits like her?”
“Yes, in addition to the golden-eyed Demon Emperors, there are 830 silver-eyed Great Demon King and Demon King as well as 1,200 black-eyed Higher Demon. The power that the grand master inheritance can dispatch is all here.” Chen Rui looked at Lanliza, “Aside from this Demon Emperor-level Queen Lanliza, the medusa tribe has 105 Great Demon Kings, 450 Demon Kings, and 1400 Higher Demons. The rest are Intermediate Demon level.”
Isabella’s eyes lit up. The strength of this medusa tribe is far better than the one in Mountain Xilang. What’s more powerful is the lamp spirits brought out from the relic civilization who have such a terrifying combat power. This force will be an important chip for the next action.
“My idea is to station all the lamp spirits in the palace and organize a powerful imperial guard. The medusas will be stationed in the secret intelligence department and cooperate with Isabella’s plan. When the capital situation stabilizes, medusas will go to Mountain Xilang in the Dark Moon to merge both tribes into 1.”
Shea and Isabella looked at each other and nodded. With the lamp spirits as the imperial guard, there would be a strong guarantee whether it was security or confidentiality. The medusas’ power could greatly be enhanced in Isabella’s hands.
Zola’s focus was not on the placement of the lamp spirits and medusas. A scorching light shone behind the spectacles as she looked at Genie, “Ancient alchemy beings? Also has the talent for instant buff magic? Quick! Try and cast magic on me now?”
As Genie glanced at Chen Rui hesitantly, Chen Rui nodded. When Genie waved her hand at Zola, a pale green light appeared and disappeared from Zola’s body. Zola squinted her eyes with enjoyment, “[Acceleration]. Judging from the elements’ cohesion, it seems like an imprint that is difficult to be canceled by ordinary magic. The effect is not bad.”
Zola could be regarded as the top magician of the Demon Realm. It was quite rare to be able to get a “not bad effect” evaluation from her.
Seeing Ms. Fairy Dragon looking interested, Chen Rui forced a cough and said, “Zola, it’s not the time now, let’s study it next time. Genie, this is one of your masters, Zola. You will follow her orders unconditionally in the future.”
Genie saluted Zola respectfully, “Master Zola.”
Zola nodded with satisfaction, “The way you cast magic has something in common with the ancient runes. Perhaps I can further improve your talent.”
“Thank you, Master Zola.”
Chen Rui keenly noticed something strange in Her Majesty Empress’ eyes, and he immediately said, “This is Her Majesty Shea who is also one of the masters of the lamp spirits. You must also obey her orders, and you will be responsible for her safety in the future.”
“Master Shea.” Genie saluted Shea again.
“It’s better to call me Your Majesty.” Shea nodded in satisfaction, but she turned her gaze on Isabella. Coincidentally, Zola also glanced at Isabella, then the strange gaze of Her Majesty Empress and Ms. Scientist were fixed on Chen Rui. He felt a flutter in his heart when he saw this.
Shea said faintly, “Aren’t introducing this… en?”
Chen Rui’s forehead was a little sweaty while Isabella smiled, “I’m not qualified to be master. Ms. Genie, your appearance is very charming. Are the 2,000 lamp spirits as beautiful as you? They will all obey the master’s command?”
“Yes.” Genie nodded, “We can dedicate everything to master at any time.”
Hearing that there were still 2,000 beautiful women who could dedicate everything, 4 weird gazes plus a gloating gaze of a woman immediately shifted to Chen Rui’s body.
She is worthy of being the head of the secret intelligence department, she drew the disaster away with just 1 sentence. Under the scrutiny of 6 eyes, the male master who seemed like sitting on pins fled the palace with the excuse of setting up the secret barrack.
TL: Are they planning a coup to get rid of those elder families that oppose them?
