Magic Industry Empire - Volume 8 Chapter 76




After the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and the Candra Empire released this joint statement, the Sines Continent that had become turbulent because of the Zidanru Town and Baimon Mines matter had finally returned to peace.

On the surface, the Candra Empire had chosen to make concessions in front of the power of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

It was no different from how the Candra Empire faced the Frestech Chamber of Commerce twelve years ago. Same as twelve years ago, the other countries treated the Frestech Chamber of Commerce no differently.

After these two matters, the Sines Continent’s situation was the same as before. The Frestech Chamber of Commerce maintained their power and the other countries honestly developed their magic machine industries. There didn’t seem to be any changes.

But in the eyes of people with ambition, things were different.

First, the most important thing was that the «Continent Peace Convention» was gone. What replaced it was the «Limited Spreading of Military Magic Machine Treaty» led by the two empires.

This treaty included more than half of the countries on the Sines Continent, including the two empires. However……it didn’t include the Frestech Chamber of Commerce!

It had to be known that twelve years ago, after the two empires had been routed by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, all the countries on the continent knew that they couldn’t resist the Frestech Chamber of Commerce that had a battle power that far exceeded their imaginations. So in the past twelve years, all the countries on the Sines Continent had tried to peacefully coexist under the suppression of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, letting the Sines Continent have a rare period of peace that lasted over ten years.

This «Continent Peace Convention» had a deadline of two years ago and everyone thought that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce would take the lead again to sign another treaty, maintaining the situation for another ten years.

But the Frestech Chamber of Commerce never did this like they had completely forgotten about this matter.

What surprised everyone was that with the two empires leading the way, the «Limited Spreading of Military Magic Machine Treaty» was created. The Frestech Chamber of Commerce didn’t say a word and didn’t object to this, taking a stance of tacitly approving of this treaty.

It had to be known that when the two empires worked with the other countries to make this treaty, they were telling everyone that these countries had been secretly developing military magic machines, which violated the «Continent Peace Convention» from before.

Even if the two empires, the Lampuri Kingdom, the Rudson Kingdom, and the other countries all stated that their research of military magic machines had only started in the two years after the «Continent Peace Convention» expired, no one believed this obvious lie.

But even like this, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce didn’t make any objections and silently agreed to this situation.

The change in attitude from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was the biggest change to the current situation on the Sines Continent.

Many people secretly guessed that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was focused on the Magic Cloud Continent, so they didn’t care about the Sines Continent and this was what created this change.

Many people also guessed that the other countries weren’t that far off from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce in terms of the military magic machines, so the Frestech Chamber of Commerce couldn’t suppress them like before. The Frestech Chamber of Commerce wisely chose to make concessions to avoid being targeted by the other countries.

In the end, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s businesses on the Sines Continent depended on the support of other countries.

Secondly, although no countries announced it, after the «Limited Spreading of Military Magic Machine Treaty» was signed, all the countries on the continent started investing large amounts of manpower and funds into researching military magic machines.

If it was because of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s suppression that no country dared to openly develop military magic machines before, now that they have confirmed that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce didn’t care, the countries didn’t hesitate to go all out.

Among them, the ones with the greatest achievements were the two empires and the Lampuri Kingdom.

The two empires had powerful national strength and the Lampuri Kingdom had the deepest magic machine industry. The three countries had never stopped their research and after going all out, they naturally had achievements one after another.

At the end of year 4316, the Candra Empire was the first to announce that the army headquarters had made a breakthrough with the Magic Cannon technology. They had created a Magic Cannon that could shoot thirty small Magic Shells at once.

Half a month later, the Marlow Empire announced that they had succeeded with their long range Magic Cannon testing, reaching an effective range of over thirty kilometers.

Then ten days later, the Lampuri Kingdom announced that they were the first country to produce their own Fire Magic Engine.

Compared to the two empires, the Lampuri Kingdom’s achievements weren’t that shocking, but when one looked closely, there was no doubt that it was more meaningful than the achievements of the two empires.

The Magic Engine, it was already the most important magic machine project in the current magic machine industry.

In the entire magic machine industry, there were countless places that needed the magic engine.

However, until now, only the Frestech Chamber of Commerce could produce the Magic Engine. If the other countries and companies wanted to produce magic machines that needed the Magic Engine, they would need to buy them from the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

However, now that the Lampuri Kingdom had developed their own Magic Engine, it could be said that they had made a major breakthrough.

Even if the power of the Lampuri Kingdom’s self developed Fire Magic Engine wasn’t that high and it was far less stable than the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s Magic Engine, with this major breakthrough, it meant that the Lampuri Kingdom was far less dependent on the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.

For the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, the Lampuri Kingdom’s announcement had without a doubt destroyed their monopoly on the Magic Engines, so it would have a great effect on their profits.

But the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s reaction was very thought provoking.

In the «Frestech Magic Machine Weekly» published later, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce praised the Lampuri Kingdom’s development of the Magic Engine. They called it one of the most significant achievements in the history of the Sines Continent’s magic machine industry and the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was filled with joy.

At the same time, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce indicated that they would be willing to share a portion of their Fire Magic Engine research with the Lampuri Kingdom. They wanted to support the Lampuri Kingdom into making a better and more effective Fire Magic Engine.

If people had thought that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s praise was only just pleasantries, then they were shocked by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s announcement of transferring this technology.

The Lampuri Kingdom developing this Fire Magic Engine meant that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce suffered the greatest losses. Shouldn’t they try to stop the Lampuri Kingdom and try to maintain their monopoly on the Magic Engine to give themselves the greatest benefits?

Now that they were handing over the technology, wasn’t that digging their own graves?

But thinking about it, it wasn’t the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s first time doing this.

When it came to the magic machine industry related technology, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce wasn’t like the other companies. They didn’t block everything and not share a single detail.

Rather, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce often shared their technology and even sold it to other companies. They even provided technical assistance to help the companies grasp the technology better.

When Xu Yi was the chairman, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce did this and now that his daughter Freya had taken over, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce still did this.

This made countless people let out sighs of relief and calm down.

People had been worried about the change in the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s attitude during this time. Now that they found that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was the same as before, keeping Xu Yi’s promise and developing the continent’s magic machine industry, people felt much more assured.

After the two empires and the Lampuri Kingdom published their achievements, the other countries weren’t willing to show any weakness.

As soon as the new year came, the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom announced that they had made a breakthrough, creating the continent’s first large transport Magic Ship that could hold over a hundred thousand tons of cargo.

The Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s transport Magic Ships had a maximum capacity of less than eighty thousand tons.

Now that the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom had made a super large transport Magic Ship that could hold over a hundred thousand tons of cargo, it meant that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce finally had a strong competitor in the shipbuilding industry.

After that, the Marlow Empire announced two more achievements.

These two weren’t all related to military magic machines. One of them was related to military magic machines since it was about independently developing the Magic Tank, but the other was that they had developed a two wheeled Magic Vehicle for civilian use.

Then two days later, the Candra Empire announced three more achievements……

Then the Lampuri Kingdom……

……

It was as if because they had been restrained by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce for too long, now that the countries of the Sines Continent were freed, countless new magic machine industry related achievements were being blown up.

The Sines Continent had reached a state of a hundred different families competing with each other. It was as if the magic machine industry had entered a period of spring and signs of life bloomed.

During this lively atmosphere, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was a bit quiet.

Before this, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce would announce their own achievements from time to time which people had already gotten used to.

But during this time, or it should be said that in the two years that Freya had taken over as the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s chairman, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had never taken out any important research results.

Of course, that didn’t mean that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce’s research had stagnated.

But it seemed like the Frestech Chamber of Commerce was more focused on magic theory. When it came to practical application, they were no longer as dazzling as before.

This situation even made people feel that the “Frestech Chamber of Commerce wasn’t as good as before”......

Until April of the year 4317 when the Frestech Chamber of Commerce announced something through the «Frestech Magic Machine Weekly» that had once again caught everyone’s eyes.

The Frestech Chamber of Commerce was about to launch a satellite!
