Mmorpg: The Almighty Ring Chapter 555
Jiang Fei left a rather good impression of himself on Si Tuying’s father. He even managed to win over her third brother, Si Tunan, with cash. Therefore, Jiang Fei had acquired her entire family’s approval.
However, it was getting late. Jiang Fei did not want to prolong his stay at Si Tuying’s house. After some brief chatter, he bade them farewell. When he left, Si Tujianxin and Si Tunan even asked him to visit them more often.
When Jiang Fei got home, it was already almost eleven o’clock. He logged into the game immediately after he returned to his room.
“Why did you come so late again?” Isabella asked curiously.
“Something got in the way…” Jiang Fei felt slightly self-conscious when he spoke. After all, he had gone after another chick in the real world.
“Oh.” Isabella nodded and did not probe any further. After all, it was not the first time Jiang Fei came late. Moreover, she could not help him with things in the external world anyway.
“Let’s go to the Demon Flame Fortress!” Jiang Fei changed the topic of discussion.
“Alright!” Isabella nodded obediently.
Thereafter, Jiang Fei and Isabella met up with Hua Mulan who was stationed on the outside of the Nephilim King’s Palace. He had to bring these ladies away before returning to the Demon Flame Fortress.
“Hua Mulan, gather the troops. We are leaving!” Jiang Fei came to the temporary base and said to Hua Mulan.
“Alright!” Hua Mulan nodded as she turned around to do as he said.
Not long after, all 700 female soldiers gathered around.
“Master Verdure Glider, I would like to express our loyalty to you on behalf of the New Saint’s Guard,” Hua Mulan said to Jiang Fei with a bow after the troops had fully gathered.
“Ah?!” Jiang Fei was stunned. He was not sure what Hua Mulan was talking about.
“Ding! Congratulations, player Verdure Glider for obtaining your first private army! You can now check and manage your army in the Commanding Window!”
“Ding! As you are the first player to own a private army, the system rewards you with 100 Commanding points!”
“Ding! A public announcement! As player Verdure Glider had obtained his first private army, the Commanding System is now officially open to everyone!”
“Sh*t! What the hell is this?” Jiang Fei was stunned. He immediately opened his Attributes Window.
After checking, he noticed that there was an additional Commanding page at the bottom of his list of Attributes. It showed his private army and their basic attributes.
Commanding Points 10+100 (Every Commanding Point gives you ten additional private army members! Every 100 Commanding Point allows you to build an entire army!)
Army: New Saint’s Guard
Number of members: 753
Lead Commander: Hua Mulan
Average Level: 70 (Elite)
Average Reputation: Respect
Status: Tired, Lacking Equipment.
At one glance, Jiang Fei quickly understood what the Commanding System meant. This represented a player’s ability to command units. Unlike pets, although the units listened to players, they could not enter dungeons with them. They also could not enter mobile spaces. They could not even be revived after dying.
All players started with ten Commanding points. That meant one could at the most collect 100 loyal members. However, the quality of members would depend on the player’s capability. If a player wanted to obtain more members after the first 100 members, he or she would need to find equipment or other items to increase his or her Commanding points.
Although Jiang Fei had 700 proper female soldiers, they were not in a good state. They may be very loyal and treated Jiang Fei with a high Reputation, but most of them were only just rescued out of jails. They were still wearing jail clothes and were lacking in equipment. Most were also tired and needed rest and nourishment before they could recover their battle powers.
“Why did they suddenly express loyalty toward me?” Although Jiang Fei understood the Commanding System, he was still a little surprised by Hua Mulan and the 700 females’ willingness to submit to him.
“Isn’t that simple…” Isabella rolled her eyes as she explained to Jiang Fei.
Hua Mulan and the rest had betrayed the Light Faction when they came over to the Dark Faction. Although Jiang Fei had acquired identities for them from the Nephilim King, these people did not directly belong to the Nephilim King. If they did not obey any of the superiors in the Dark Faction, they would be sent to the frontlines. After all, they would have to prove themselves from the very bottom.
Also, if Hua Mulan and the rest were put in the frontlines, they would be placed at the most horrid areas of the battlefield. Moreover, the soldiers from the Light Faction hated them deeply for their betrayal. Therefore, they would not have any chance of survival on the battlefield.
However, fortunately, Jiang Fei was very influential as the princess’ husband. Although he did not have a lot of say in the Dark Faction, he still held a high position. Moreover, the female soldiers had a very high Reputation toward Jiang Fei. Therefore, under Hua Mulan’s influence, all of them pledged their loyalty to Jiang Fei.
After becoming Jiang Fei’s private army, these ladies would not have to fight in the frontlines. They only needed to obey Jiang Fei’s orders and follow him around. That way, they would have a higher chance of survival.
“I see now!” Jiang Fei nodded after Isabella was done explaining.
“Alright then! Since they have pledged their loyalty to me, I shall not call them the Saint’s Guard anymore. Let’s change their name to the Rosette Knighthood!” Jiang Fei said after some thought.
“Ding! The army’s name has been changed successfully!”
Jiang Fei had named them as such to commemorate the Rosette Knighthood’s members. Ever since the original Rosette Knighthood joined forces with the Empyreal Dragon, there weren’t many of the ladies left from the guild. After all, the ladies were mostly daughters of rich families. They only played the game for fun. After they became bored with the game, they gradually left. Out of the forty who joined the game, there were less than five of them left. The remaining ladies were all lured away by other newer games.
Jiang Fei brought the Rosette Knighthood from the Nephilim King’s Palace to the Demon Flame Fortress through a portal. Instead of bringing them to Ivan to request for a place to stay, he brought the Rosette Knighthood to his own Demon Dragon Fortress.
This was the name he gave his new fortress. After all, he and Isabella were both half Naga and half Nephilim. Therefore, this was an appropriate name for their fortress.
By then, the place had already been in construction for more than twenty days. The initial structure of the Demon Dragon Fortress was already in place. The walls were already completed. The archery towers and cannons were fully equipped with battle powers. Although there were still some incomplete constructions in the external wall, and some parts of the interior were not done, the fortress already had pretty impressive defensive capabilities.
“Hehe! It’s great to be rich!” Jiang Fei showed a look of satisfaction.
His castle had cost him more than five times the normal price of building one. However, the castle had at most two times the amount of normal Attack Power. The speed of building had also been increased by 50%. All in all, it was not worth the amount of money he had spent. However, as Jiang Fei had robbed the Light Faction of seven of its towns, he had quite a lot of money to spend lavishly.
After checking the time, there were still two days until the information release date. After tomorrow, a lot of players would enter the Faction zone. By then, although the Demon Dragon Fortress would still need some time to complete the interior construction, the walls would be complete. Based on the current players’ capabilities with a level average of 50, it would be impossible for them to break through the Demon Dragon Fortress.
