“Sir chairman, didn’t you say that you didn’t want to fully offend Duchess Windsor?”
“I did say that, but I didn’t completely offend her, right?”
“You clearly beat her subordinates and shamed her to her face, how is this not considered completely offending her?”
“I didn’t kill her subordinates and as for shaming…..It’s just a piece of meat, how is it completely offending her?”
“Alright, sir chairman, even if you barely didn’t fully offend her, but aren’t you afraid of offending Duke Windsor by doing this? Once Duchess Windsor goes back and tells Duke Windsor about what happened, aren’t you worried that Duke Windsor will be angry?”
“If Duke Windsor is a smart person, what I did cannot be considered offending him, so he should be able to see the key problem with this matter. But if Duke Windsor is not smart…...that is also fine, this means that he isn’t qualified to cooperate with us and it doesn’t matter if we offend him.”
“Sir chairman…...Although I don’t understand what you are saying, it does sound quite fierce. But if you offend Duke Windsor, won’t you offend the Candra Empire? You’re not worried that this will affect our company’s entry into the Candra Empire?”
“Get it clear, Duke Windsor is Duke Windsor, the Candra Empire is the Candra Empire. Offending Duke Windsor and offending the Candra Empire are two different matters. According to how I expect this matter to develop, if I really offended Duke Windsor, it might greatly help our company’s entry into the Candra Empire.”
“Sir chairman, I’m even more confused by what you said…..I only know that what you are saying is clearly different from what you said before.”
“This…..The reason is very simple, it’s because I changed my decision……”
Xu Yi and Akali kept talking until the Magic Airship finally landed at the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s main base.
After getting out of the Magic Airship, Akali and the other captured Frestech Chamber of Commerce workers planned to get some rest first to make up for their experience over the past three days.
When they left, Akali looked at Xu Yi with a gaze filled with doubt.
Xu Yi had told Akali many different things on the Magic Airship, but Akali didn’t understand most of it. However, without knowing why, she felt that it sounded very fierce, so she was filled with confidence in Xu Yi.
Of course, the things that Xu Yi did were hard for many people to understand, but they all proved how powerful he was, so Akali’s confidence wasn’t blind.
After arranging all the workers who had been rescued, Xu Yi had Hart choose several guards to send Count Dole to the Stantine Duchy congress to prepare him to stand trial.
Although Xu Yi had already released the Ice Coffin Spell, Count Dole’s body had gone soft from being frozen and he couldn’t resist at all.
As for what would happen to him, Xu Yi didn’t care.
This fellow had become useless, so it wasn’t important what would happen to him in the future. The most important thing was what kind of impact this would bring.
After sending off Count Dole, Xu Yi immediately called all the high level members of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and held a conference.
A week later, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce started recruiting guards again, having a quota of one thousand people.
Although the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards kept recruiting, there weren’t many spots each time. It would generally be around a hundred people and at most it would be less than three hundred, so up to now, there were only five thousand total guards.
This time, they were recruiting a thousand people which attracted the attention of many people.
Countless adventurers who were already enticed by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guard treatment paid attention to this, looking forward to entering the Frestech Chamber of Commerce to give up their dangerous lives as adventurers. They wanted a safer, better, and more powerful life for themselves.
However, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had strict conditions for their recruitment and not only did they have strict conditions for physical qualities, they also had strict conditions for mental qualities.
The most important request was absolute loyalty to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, so it was impossible for the adventurers with bad records to join.
Just based on this, most of the candidates were screened out.
The remaining people were all people who had been filtered out.
Compared to those adventurers who cared about this recruitment for their personal gains, the surrounding countries cared about this more.
The Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards were much less than any of the armies of the surrounding countries, but in terms of battle strength, not a single country dared to say they could match them.
Because the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards were equipped with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s military magic machine. There were many types that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce didn’t give to the public, so it was impossible for them to buy.
So in terms of battle strength, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards surpassed everyone’s judgement and they couldn’t be underestimated.
This time the Frestech Chamber of Commerce recruiting a thousand guards, if they all had the same battle strength, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s guards would become stronger once again.
For the surrounding countries, this was a hidden threat.
Of course, with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce's powerful influence on the surrounding countries, not a single one of them could leave the Frestech Chamber of Commerce. So there was no chance of them sending troops at the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
But the Frestech Chamber of Commerce didn’t have any ambition in this aspect and they suddenly made this move, did that mean that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce suddenly changed their ideas?
At the same time, Count Dole was put on trial at the Stantine Duchy congress. For kidnapping the subordinates of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and colluding with the forces of another country, resisting the various laws of the Stantine Duchy congress, he would be imprisoned for life. He also lost his status as a noble and all his private property was taken back.
After Count Dole was imprisoned, his matter spread across the Stantine Duchy. When he was judged, although many people in the duchy thought that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was being too overbearing, no one dared to raise any objections.
The nobles that had worked with Count Dole to resist the policies of the Stantine Duchy congress, after receiving news of Count Dole’s trial results, they all became obedient.
The work on the magic communication network became smooth all over the duchy and there were no more hindrances.
In just half a month, the first issue of the magic signal towers for the magic communication network was settled.
Next they just had to set up the magic signal dock, which would allow the magic signal to cover the area.
This meant that when the time came in Stantine Duchy, one could pick up the Magic Communicator and contact anyone else in the Stantine Duchy with the Magic Communicator.
Although they were still far from being able to communicate wirelessly like on earth with their current limit to the magic communication technology, this was a big leap for this world that had limited communications.
Other than these two public things, beneath the surface, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had chosen an empty spot near the border of the Stantine Duchy on the Black Rice Wasteland to build a military magic machine production base.
Before this, because of Xu Yi’s insistence, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce only had ten factories for military magic machines, so their production capacity was never high. Moreover, just by supplying the Lampuri Kingdom, the Rudson Kingdom, and the Drake Duchy, they had very limited supplies.
But now, according to their initial plan, they would be building another twenty military magic machine factories on this production base. At the same time, they would set up a research facility just for military magic machines, focused on developing various military magic machines.
Not many people in the Frestech Chamber of Commerce knew about this change, so not many people paid attention to this and it was covered up by the other large pieces of news.
In terms of submerging news, there was a piece of news that even surpassed the news of the Stantine Duchy putting Count Dole on trial and the Frestech Chamber of Commerce recruiting guards.
This piece of news was something that other countries care more about, it even attracted great attention in the giant Candra Empire.
The honourable third prince of the Candra Empire, his highness Frank Deboir had announced that he was interested in holding a Magic Sedan race with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce in the Stantine Duchy, the Lampuri Kingdom, and the Rudson Kingdom. So he welcomed the Frestech Chamber of Commerce to enter the Candra Empire to hold this race.
Once this news was spread, it created a giant stir.
Although his highness Frank Deboir was only the Candra Empire’s third prince, the Candra Empire hadn’t set a crown prince yet. His highness Frank had a high fame in the Candra Empire, so he was one of the candidates for the title of crown prince.
Such an important person had great fame and influence in the Candra Empire, so he was completely different from a small country in the southwest of the continent.
But now he made this clear statement and even mentioned the Frestech Chamber of Commerce by name!
Although he only stated that he was interested in the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s Magic Sedan races, to receive the recognition of such an important person, it was an opportunity from the heavens for the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
Everyone was certain that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s path into the Candra Empire would be problem free!
