Dragon Bright Empire.
In just a few days, more and more dragons came in and out of the Golden Estate, which had already become the focus of all parties.
The answer was finally revealed.
The purpose of the dragons coming to the Golden Estate was to buy a kind of wine.
This wine was never seen before and its name was the ‘yellow dragon wine’.
It was said that the Dragon Emperor Pagris of the Dragon Valley obtained the fine wine secret formula from an ancient treasure. Unfortunately, it was incomplete and could not be brewed, which was a pity. Later, by chance, the new dragon rider, Samuel, got this incomplete secret formula as a reward from the Dragon Emperor. Samuel used to go deep into the dangerous Demon Realm for training, and he happened to get another part of the secret formula there. After repeated experiments, he finally brewed it successfully and built a secret wine cellar in the Golden Estate.
This time, Samuel was able to redeem himself. After returning to the Dragon Valley, he presented the best wine to the Dragon Emperor Pagris. The Dragon Emperor was delighted and named it the yellow dragon wine. He also listed it as a reward for the Dragon Valley’s virtual training.
So the dragons flew all the way to the Golden Estate to receive the reward. However, this kind of fine wine was so wonderful that even the most stingy dragons bought it with a lot of black crystal coins, so it was not just limited to the number of rewards.
Due to the limited number of fine wines, Samuel had to use a limited purchase method, and each dragon could only buy 10 bottles.
Even so, the dragons came in an endless stream, and the yellow dragon wine was in short supply. Many dragons went to the lord’s mansion, and collectively protested to Prince ‘Arthur’ who was followed by Samuel, demanding unlimited sales of this superb wine. Prince ‘Arthur’ had agreed, and he would order Samuel to speed up the brewing so as to prepare for a public sale.
This news intrigued everyone – What kind of fine wine is it that the dragons of the Dragon Valley are so eager to buy, and they even go to the lord’s mansion to protest?
Immediately, a group of quick-witted businessmen entered the Golden Estate and made an appointment with Samuel to get the right to sell this fine wine.
This ‘hunger marketing method’ undoubtedly made those merchants and customers more ‘thirsty’. More and more merchants poured into the Golden Estate.
Those who had tasted the yellow dragon wine unanimously agree that this new wine absolutely surpassed any kind of fine wine in the world today, and it was enough to set off a craze all over the world.
In an instant, not only the Golden Estate, but the entire Dragon Bright Empire was boiling.
At this time, under the coordination of Prince ‘Arthur’, Samuel finally began to openly sell the yellow dragon wine in the city. Among them, the most excellent yellow dragon wine was limited, but 3 types of top, medium and ordinary could be provided in batches to adapt to various price points.
Every day, there were long queues in front of the shops. No matter what type of the yellow dragon wine it was, it was sold out as soon as it was launched. 3 branches were opened, and it was still very hot-selling. The yellow dragon wine on the black market was even ramped up to a sky high price.
Under this opportunity, Samuel took advantage of the timing and announced that the yellow dragon wine would officially provide the first batch of orders at the upcoming trade fair, and the first batch of distributors would be finalized at that time. As soon as the news came out, it immediately aroused great enthusiasm among businessmen, including many large business families.
All discerning businessmen understood that the yellow dragon wine was definitely a kind of fine wine that could sell well all over the world. Therefore, the sales scale and sales volume in the future would only become larger and larger. Even if there was no chance to get an order this time, they must maintain a good relationship with Samuel and Royal Highness ‘Arthur’. For a time, there was an endless stream of visitors and gift-givers.
On the contrary, many people felt sorry for the Kemplot Family as they actually gave up such a cash cow voluntarily!
In this regard, the patriarch of the Kemplot Family, Carlo, the father of Samuel, could only smile bitterly. In fact, as a father, he was very clear that this son had no talent in wine making, and there was no secret wine cellar. The only explanation was what Prince ‘Arthur’ said to him at the time, “The Golden Estate is about to undergo great changes, shaking the entire empire and even the human world.”
The real master behind the scenes was the Royal Highness Third Prince!
Perhaps, the yellow dragon wine was just the beginning.
Since Prince ‘Arthur’ was too busy to meet those visitors in person, he sent Stram of the Kemplot Family, the new treasurer, to approach them on his behalf, and gave some corresponding promises, which made most of the visitors return with joy.
During the visit, an ‘insider information’ was also spread by businessmen one by one.
At the trade fair 1 month later, an auction would be held. The final product would be several alchemy works of Third Prince ‘Arthur’. This time it caused a greater commotion as ‘Arthur’ was not only the third prince of the empire, he was also 1 of the 3 major mechanical grand masters of humans! Although they didn’t know what the ‘auction’ was about, there were works by mechanical grand masters, so this time they would definitely not miss it! For a time, more people flocked to the Golden Estate.
Where there were people, there would be consumption. Profit was always the most important thing for businessmen. The originally vacant shops began to fill up quietly. Since Golden Estate had the ‘novelty product’ of the yellow dragon wine, this ‘full capacity’ was by no means a short-term effect, but it would be a long lasting situation.
It was now that everyone realized why Arthur had a series of measures such as building shops and roads before. The so-called ‘experts’ were dumbfounded.
People gave thumbs up to the Royal Highness Third Prince. Facing all kinds of problems, he appeared calm, strategized, and defused the crisis with a breeze. Such ability and demeanor were indeed convincing.
In fact, Royal Highness ‘Arthur’ was very leisurely at present. As the supreme controller of an estate, he didn’t have to do everything himself. As long as he used the right person, he could save a lot of energy and avoid a lot of subjective mistakes. With the dear Ms. Yini and the trustworthy Knight Samuel helping him, he could of course drink wine while chatting.
Chen Rui wasn’t chatting to Grand Master Chique, because Grand Master Chique had left half a month ago. This exchange gave Grand Master Chique a lot of inspiration, so he was eager to go back to study and practice.
Sitting opposite Chen Rui were 2 acquaintances who were also grand masters.
1 was a tall and thin man with handsome features and pointed ears that were characteristic of the elf tribe, and the other was the big bearded hobbit with white hair. His beard was carefully woven into little braids which was in contrast to the messy hair.
“I had a hunch in the Jade Forest Sea that the youngest mechanic grand master of human is an acquaintance! From the moment I entered the Golden Estate and smelled the faint scent of wine, I am absolutely sure it was you.” The old hobbit shouted as he took a big mouthful of wine. The wine splashed on his beard and chest, but he didn’t care. Instead, he exclaimed jubilantly.
“Although I don’t agree with the hobbit’s rude way of drinking wine, I have always believed in their sense of smell.” The elf took a sip of wine gracefully, showing a pleasant expression, “I really miss the aromatic millet wine you gave me last time. In less than 3 days, it was finished by a certain forest hobbit.”
The elf tribe Grand Master Finoia and the forest hobbit Grand Master Bernd.
In front of these 2 credible old friends, Chen Rui didn’t need to hide or explain too much. He said with a smile, “My friend, don’t worry. This time, the wine will absolutely satisfy you until you’re full. You can bring it back if you can’t finish it, haha. “
“A toast to the generosity of Your Highness Prince.” The elf blinked and raised his glass.
“This prince position won’t last long. My friend, our relationship will have to be cleared up again at that time.” Chen Rui shrugged and raised his cup.
The elf grand master nodded knowingly, which meant he understood, just like when Chen Rui had deliberately attacked him when he faced Isyorul. Today, the elf and the hobbit were here just as the grand masters to communicate with the human ‘junior’ who newly advanced to grand master.
The old hobbit cheered with a customized big cup, “No matter what prince or not, it’s for friendship.”
“For friendship.” The 3 of them shouted at the same time and drank all the wine in the glass in 1 breath; even the elegant elf was no exception.
“Arthur, Bernd and I can only be amazed by you. Especially the magic game you showed us. Although it is not an artifact, it is far more magical than an artifact. It is no exaggeration to say that the whole world will change! You’re the real grand master!”
“I can’t bear this.” Chen Rui said a little embarrassedly, “I just got some inspiration. Strictly speaking, I plagiarized the idea of another civilization. The same goes with the magic gun which is an idea from Sir Finoia.”
This was actually true, but unfortunately, the elf grand master and the hobbit grand master didn’t think so.
Bernd said carefreely, “I’ve seen the original blueprint of the magic gun. Compared with the guns designed in your game, it’s the difference between a newborn baby and the hobbit warriors with a battle axe!”
“Bernd is right.” The elf grand master pondered for a moment, and he finally asked a question hidden in his mind, “I have a question, my friend, I hope you can answer me truthfully. In the magic game’s dungeon… what are those monsters?”
“Why do you ask that?” Chen Rui looked directly into the elf’s eyes.
“Before my teacher’s death, he passed on a part of his strength and memory to me, and there is a huge secret in it. In this part of memory, I found something that is likely to be related to the magic game dungeon. Perhaps it’s an amazing coincidence related to the nightmare that happened to the Silver Moon Celestial Capital’s elf tribe 20,000 years ago.”
Chen Rui nodded, “It is indeed related. In fact, it is modified based on… those terrifying creatures behind the fallen one.”
The answer shocked Finoia. Only Bernd didn’t understand what was going on and looked puzzled.
“I want to ask, what is your relationship with ‘them’?” Finoia’s expression became solemn.
“I think you misunderstood, my friend. Let me state one thing first, the Elf King Span, who sacrificed himself to save the elf tribe, is my wife’s father.” Chen Rui smiled slightly, “My wife, Zola, whom the 2 of you saw just now is a fairy dragon. This magic game… Uh, it was researched by me and Sir Span.”
Finoia showed a realization expression, and the nerves that were a little tense suddenly relaxed.
Back then, the Cloud Rider Empire was controlled by the Black Death Followers, and countless people were sacrificed by blood sacrifice. The terrifying Black Death Followers not only mutilated humans, but also extended their horrifying means to the Jade Forest Sea.
At that time, the Great Elder Ifrit, the elf, could not resist the temptation and became a fallen elf, which became the beginning of the nightmare of the elf tribe. Ifrit first used the love between Span and Fairy Dragon Meria as an excuse to expel Span, the highest commander of the elf tribe, from the Jade Forest Sea. Then, he controlled the elf queen step by step. Under the collaboration from the inside and outside forces, the Silver Moon Celestial Capital was easily captured by the Black Death Followers. The real purpose of the Black Death Followers was the elf’s holy tree, the Tree of Nature. They tried to use this as a medium to continuously instill the resentment obtained by blood sacrifice in order to open the entrance to the abyss and release the abyss creatures of the world of destruction.
At a critical moment, Span led a large number of humans and dragons’ powerhouse back to the Silver Moon Celestial Capital to eliminate all the fallen ones. At the cost of his life, he activated the power of the Tree of Nature and completely sealed the entrance.
After being rescued by the Fairy Dragon Meria using the secret technique of life, Span was honored as the Elf King and became an unsung hero of the era.
Finoia’s teacher was the comrade-in-arms who fought side by side with Span at the beginning. Finoia was worried that this human friend was tempted by some kind of fallen power. Unexpectedly, he was the son-in-law of the Elf King, and the magic game was actually the Elf King’s work!
Chen Rui didn’t mind pulling the banner of father-in-law and laughed, “In addition to training and entertainment, the magic game can make the player adapt to more emergencies, including facing some terrifying existences. Whether it is us or our descendants. This is also 1 of the most important original intentions of the magic game.”
“Understood. No doubt it is an admirable work that can change the world, and your ambition is also very noble.” Finoia stood up and bowed deeply to Chen Rui, “This etiquette is on behalf og the elf tribe. I won’t say anything courteous. I have only 1 request, which is to promote the magic game at the Silver Moon Celestial Capital.”
“No problem, my plan is to popularize this game all over the world, but the specific ‘release’ time will be delayed for a while – After the popularity of aromatic millet wine, I will take advantage of the momentum of the aromatic millet wine to find the best entry point to launch it. However, I can guarantee that in addition to the dragons who originally experimented with the game, the Jade Forest Sea will be the first place to popularize the magic game.”
“And the forest hobbit!” Old Bernd added loudly.
“Of course, sir hobbit grand master. I’m talking about ‘the Jade Forest Sea’. My friends there are not just the elves.”
“Today I have gotten to know you better, my human friend.” Finoia smiled gracefully, “I’m honored for this. When your chores are finished, be sure to come to the Silver Moon Celestial Capital. I have something for you.”
Chen Rui became interested and asked, “What is that?”
“You will know when you come to the celestial capital.” Finoia showed a mysterious smile, “You will not be disappointed, my friend with noble aspirations.”
TL: Wouldn’t he alert the Black Death Followers too?
