Using the power of the magic machine industry to change the entertainment industry of the continent, this wasn’t just a whim that Xu Yi had.
When he transmigrated to this world, he felt that this world’s entertainment was lacking compared to earth’s. Xu Yi had decided that he would use magic to change the entertainment of this world one day.
When he made the magic piano model at the Senkaiser School, it was a small test.
Later when he established the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and as the magic machines spread, this idea became even stronger in Xu Yi’s heart.
But he could never find a good idea to promote this matter.
This time because of the Illusion Magic Array learned from elder Undine, as well as developing the Magic Illusion Projector, Xu Yi felt inspired. He immediately drew on the countless ideas of earth’s entertainment industry.
Building a film and entertainment base would make it more convenient to make more movies.
As for where to build this film and entertainment base, after Xu Yi considered it, he felt that he might as well work with the Azshara Tribe and built it here.
To begin with, the Illusion Magic Array came from the Azshara Tribe. So if they built the film and entertainment base here, it would be more convenient with the control the Azshara Tribe had over the Illusion Magic Array when they started making films.
Second, Xu YI wanted to strengthen the Azshara Tribe’s relationship with humans, pushing the elves to become closer to the humans.
According to Xu Yi’s plan, if everything went smoothly, this film and entertainment base would be a very popular place in the future. It would attract the attention of countless people like the film towns on earth.
The Azshara Tribe wasn’t prepared to welcome a large number of humans yet, but with this film and entertainment base and as the films became more popular, the Azshara Tribe would accept contact with humans more and would become more integrated into human society.
After explaining the details and the benefits of the film and entertainment base, elder Undine considered it, but she didn’t immediately agree. She said that she would seriously consider it.
Xu Yi was very satisfied with this answer.
After knowing the Night Song Tribe and the Moon Shadow Tribe for a long time, Xu Yi was very clear on the personality of the elves.
The elves were very proud, they would immediately reject something if they weren’t willing to do it.
Since elder Undine would consider it, it meant that she was moved.
As for how he would persuade her in the future, he would leave that to Still.
After all, this film and entertainment base, as well as promoting the entertainment industry on the Sines Continent was something that Xu Yi only needed to make a proposal for, he would leave the concrete details to Still and her New Moon Chamber of Commerce.
As for Xu Yi? Of course he would put more energy into developing the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and the magic machine industry.
Through the three way cooperation with the Azshara Tribe and the Rudson Kingdom, the biggest benefit that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce received was that their shares of the Rudson Kingdom’s mineral resources had greatly increased.
This was enough to satisfy the increasing demands of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, as well as increasing their production scale. As they began using the automatic production magic machines more, it would keep increasing the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s production.
In the final month of year 3785, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had produced seven thousand two hundred and nineteen Variable Magic Air Conditioners. Compared to the three thousand one hundred and five units of last year, it was more than double.
The Frestech Brand household magic machines didn’t need to worry about their sales in the surrounding countries. They could sell however many they produced, so naturally their income had increased with their production.
In the final month, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had earned one million one hundred and thirty thousand gold coins just from household magic machines. Whether it was last year or the year before that, it had greatly increased.
At the year end summary, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s profit in December had surpassed two million four hundred and thirty thousand gold coins. When it came to annual profit, they easily broke the twenty million that was projected at the beginning of the year and reached twenty six million and seven hundred thousand gold coins.
With this terrifying profit, it meant that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had become a first class company in the surrounding countries, surpassing countless older companies.
In terms of influence, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was even stronger.
Whether it was the Lampuri Kingdom that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce always had a deep connection with, the Rudson Kingdom that they had just entered a deeper cooperation with, the Drake Duchy, the Mirando Duchy, and the other small countries, or even the Sack Kingdom that had conflict with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce before, they all wanted to cooperate with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
Xu Yi couldn’t create waves in those countries with a stomp of his foot, but at least no one could ignore his words in those countries.
Not to mention the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s powerful influence in the magic machine industry of those countries, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce alone had become a power that couldn’t be neglected.
Because of the conflict with Count Wein, as well as the loss from the ambush of the Sack Kingdom, Xu Yi had greatly increased the power of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards after stabilizing the situation in the Stantine Duchy.
By the end of the year, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards had gone from just two thousand to over six thousand people.
Of the extra four thousand recruited, there were eight hundred dwarves, one thousand and five hundred beastmen, and the rest were all humans recruited from various regions.
As for the elves…..Although there were many elves that responded to the recruitment of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce from the Night Song Tribe and the Moon Shadow Tribe, they didn’t join the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards. They chose to directly become Xu Yi’s subordinate, joining Xu Yi’s private guards.
There weren’t that many elves, only numbering three hundred, but the elves had always been famous for being powerful on the Sines Continent. So to many people, they were even stronger than the eight hundred dwarves or the one thousand and five hundred beastmen.
So with the warriors of the various races in the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards or the thousand private guards that Xu Yi had, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had a power that couldn’t be ignored.
And with the military magic machines they were equipped with, as well as the long term training they had to use those military magic machines, their battle strength was naturally even more terrifying.
In the surrounding countries, there was a consensus.
Even if the Frestech Chamber of Commerce only sent out a thousand guards, they could easily defeat ten thousand soldiers of any other country.
Because the guards of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce surpassed this era, the armies of the other countries weren’t even on the same scale.
But to Xu Yi, this was far from being enough.
“Everyone look, these red dots are the islands of value that the guard fleet has found on the endless seas. There are a total of thirty seven islands.”
In the main conference room of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s base, Xu Yi was standing in front of a large wooden board pointing at the map on it as he spoke.
“According to Leslie’s reports, these islands have good mineral resources and rich magic resources, they are very suited to be cultivated. The most important thing is that there is no one controlling these islands.”
Heinz who was sitting in the first position to the right gave a laugh, “Of course, these islands are several hundred kilometers from the coast, there’s no country that would be that bored to go that far to develop. Not to mention anything else, it would be too risky and would cost too much to send people and resources over.”
“Un.” Xu Yi nodded, “But there isn’t this problem for us. Now that we have five large transport Magic Boats, we can easily transport staff and goods to those islands. But there is a serious problem for us, which is we don’t have enough people.”
The people in the conference room looked at each other with a bit of helplessness.
Even if their company had been recruiting people since last year, because of the strike, Xu Yi had suddenly fired eighteen thousand people. This had caused great loss to the company that they still hadn’t recovered from yet.
The Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s production capacity increasing was mainly because Sancheli had made a breakthrough with the automatic production magic machines, replacing much of the work that they needed people for.
But there are many steps in the production of the magic machines where the automatic production magic machines couldn’t replace manpower, so the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was still lacking in workers.
Moreover, the lack of people Xu Yi mentioned wasn’t just workers, but also guards.
To develop on islands that were hundreds of kilometers from the coast and over a thousand kilometers from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s base, it was necessary to deploy guards.
But to arrange enough guards for thirty seven islands, even if they deployed only a hundred guards to each island, that was still close to four thousand guards.
And if they really did arrange it like this, who would defend their main base, their convoys, and all their various factories?
These places needed a lot of manpower and they also couldn’t lack it.
“The manpower issue can’t be solved in a short period of time, so I’ve decided to use another method to solve this situation.” Xu Yi continued.
Everyone all turned to look at Xu Yi.
Sir chairman’s ideas were normally a bit outlandish that people couldn’t believe them, some people even thought they were crazy, but the various facts proved that his ideas always gave good results and would turn out good in the end.
“Since it isn’t realistic to have enough guards on these islands, we’ll just give up that idea. My method is to build enough defenses on those islands and not deploy any guards. As for the main defenses, we’ll rely on the guard fleet.”
“Although Leslie is already leading a guard fleet, that is far from enough. I want the guard fleet to completely control the seas here. To put it more directly, it is to turn the seas into our Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s garden. Our final goal is to use these islands and with the guard fleet controlling the seas, these seas will become our Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s kingdom on the sea!”
Xu Yi slapped the map of the sea on the wooden board and the expression of everyone in the conference room turned awkward.
Sir chairman’s ambitions…...weren’t they a bit too big…...
