Chapter 161: The Construction of the Fortress

On the battlefield, morale can lead to an absolute victory or defeat.

This saying is absolutely correct.

It can be called the truth.

Because it had been proven in history that troops with low morale simply could not compete with troops with high morale.

If the two sides were to engage in a decisive battle.

Even if the troops with high morale had fewer people and poorer equipment, they could still easily defeat troops with low morale, better equipment, and large numbers.

And Kant now had in control of this mysterious morale!

He currently had two great items.

[ Intimidation ] was used to lower the enemy’s morale, while [ Commanding Power ] was used to raise their morale. When these two items buffing each other, their troops would become invincible.

This was the reason why he was excited.

Although the loyalty of the recruits was enough, it was a constant loyalty.

However, with their own personalities, habits, and thoughts, their morale was not always at constant status.

This was because they would also be afraid, scared, and nervous. Hence, when they faced with the enemy’s violent attacks, they would definitely not willing to sacrifice their life if the casualties were high. They would also choose to flee like ordinary people, but the result would be the complete collapse of their defensive line, thus, they would lose a certain crucial battle.

Hence, Kant had always placed great importance on the morale of the troops.

He looked at the horn on the table.

“Very good.”, Kant smiled. This problem had been solved.

Mind communication system.

Taking advantage of this opportunity, Kant made up his mind. He wanted to turn all the reward he had just drawn into reality. After all, the remaining 21 golden cards were still floating quietly in his mind.

In an instant.

The familiar view of God reappeared in Kant’s eyes.

He once again arrived at the 20-meter high altitude of the Oasis Lookout.

First was the building card.

[ Stable: Military building. A shed made of stone and wood, which can shelter the horses from the wind and rain, providing a more comfortable environment. However, this building can only store horses and does not have the ability to nurture warhorse or provide excellent studs. ]

[ Tavern: Economic building. ]. The craftsmen built the stone well and carefully processed the woods. The building was built into a two-story building. Tables and chairs were placed, and alcohol-type drinks and food were prepared, so that people could drink freely in it during their leisure time. Remark: economic building can charge denar for its interior. ]

[ Linen workshop: Economic building. This small workshop does not look big, it is just a small wooden shed. The attentive peasant women are busy inside, and after processing the flax bales, they then process it into high-quality linen cloth. ]

[ Salt workshop: Economic type building. This is a workshop that covers an area of 500 square meters. The neatly cut stone slabs are arranged into whole pieces, and they have been treated with anti-seepage treatment to prevent damages when drying the salt. ]

[ Stone paving road: Civil building. Neat stones are laid together to form three-meters wide road. It can extend to a very long distance. If it exceeds the required distance, it will cost extra 10 denars per meter to build. ]

These were the five most basic buildings.

Kant narrowed his eyes slightly.

He built the stable next to the east city gate to store the warhorse of the heavy cavalry and light cavalry. In an emergency, these cavalries could immediately get on their horses and rush out through the city gate.

The linen workshop and salt workshop were built in the crafts area on the west side, which was close to the sugar workshop.

As for the tavern, Kant looked at the introduction and thought deeply.

If he charged denar internally, wouldn’t he be able to open the tavern and let people spend money to earn denar? Just like the tavern in the game, if he wanted to drink, he had to pay.

“Not bad.”, Kant chuckled. He built the tavern at the junction of the residential area and the military area. It was located at the east end of the council hall road and could be built close to the camp of the desert bandits.

“Hold on the road construction first.”

Kant thought carefully and did not directly choose to build a road.

Although according to the introduction, he could completely rely on this system road to build a pathway from the Oasis Lookout to the natural salt mine or directly to the posthouse. In the future, it would be a huge leap to the trade caravan’s progress.

But that was for the future.

Kant’s current principle was to develop in secret.

The road leading directly to the posthouse was easy to expose himself, and the road leading from the Oasis Lookout to the natural salt mine would expose the location of his salt mine. Although he was not afraid of the enemy’s attack, it would be good to have less trouble.

Development was the absolute principle.

Moreover, Kant had a camel farm. He bought more than ten camels to form a camel caravan. The speed of traveling in the desert was not slower than the speed of traveling on the road. Therefore, he was not in a hurry to build the road, but to build the buildings in the fortress first.

It was thanks to the city planning that he had prepared beforehand.

Now Kant was not worried about the location of the construction. Instead, he seemed to be in good order and not in a mess.

This was also the same for the agricultural area and the animal husbandry area.

The 25-acre date palm jungle was connected to the previous 5-acre date palm jungle. It was like a sand-blocking forest on the north side. Lush green patches appeared there. The date palm tree was tall and straight, and the greenery that had not been seen for a few days was restored. It gave people joy and happiness, because the cluster of small flowers under the palm leaves proved that these date palm trees were in the flowering and pollination period.

As if sensing the scent of pollen, in the fortress, groups of desert bees suddenly flapped their wings and flew out, happily diving into the forest that was filled with the sweet scent of date palm.

Before long, the sweet date palm honey would appear in the honeycomb waiting to be harvested.

The 50-acre wheat field was also connected to the 7.5-acre wheat field.

However, the previous 7.5-acre wheat field belonged to the sandy soil of the Oasis Lookout. Only the seeds produced by the system were used, so the growth cycle was also very long. At least more than a month had passed, but there were no signs of sprouting.

The wheat field produced by the system was different.

They were materialized in the real world.

The green wheat seedlings were swaying on the fertile soil. The slight greenery of wheat seedlings matched with the lush greenery of the date palm forest. It curled up slightly under the midday sun, making it look pitiful.

The 50 arcs of wheat fields were already quite huge.

In fact, with the 30 arcs of date palm jungle, the size of the agricultural area was almost twice that of Drondheim.

To the north of the city wall, rich crops were growing.

At a glance.

From the bottom of the city wall to the sand dune in the distance, it was completely the territory of date palm forest and wheat fields. The sand layer had completely disappeared and was replaced by the standard fertile soil, the kind of excellent land that could grow crops.

The systematic field was self-organized.

Kant had long known this.

Materialization in this world would change the structure of the land itself. Just like now, from sand to soil, it was like the fertile soil was dug out of nowhere, and exchanged with same volume of sand in here.

Even the pastures in the livestock area were the same.

On the west side of the lake, the chee grass grass beach extended to 20 acres, and the waist-height chee grass was very dense.

At the same time, in the southwest direction of the lake, the 20 arcs alfalfa grass pasture also known as the “King of forage grass” was also established there.

Both types of forage grass were high-quality forage grass that could be fed to livestock, especially alfalfa grass. It was well-nourished and could be fed to warhorses without any problems. As long as it was combined with a little beans and bread, the physical strength of warhorse would not decrease due to improper feeding, on the contrary, it would become stronger and more handsome.

If a cow that was producing milk wanted to produce a large amount of milk every day, feeding alfalfa grass was the best choice.

From this, it could be seen that alfalfa grass was extremely nutritious.

“Flax field.”

Kant looked at the last piece of agricultural field and placed it on the north side of the lake.

These flax seedlings could become flax when they grew up. The harvested flax bundles could be used as raw materials for weaving. After being processed, they would form flax fibers. After being carefully woven, it would become a top-grade linen.

As for flax seeds, they could be pressed for oil.

Currently the oil that eaten by the people in “Drondheim” fortress was made from the fat of the sand gazelle, or the lard from the Reyvadin caravan. As for vegetable oil, it was quite difficult to obtain.

However, Kant didn’t have a press oil workshop.

If he wanted to eat flax oil, he still needed to wait and see if the system’s reward would appear.

“There’s also the anger camp.”

Kant’s eyes lit up.

This was a building that was independent of the original battle group. It was from the game (Prophesy of Pendor). It was the troop class system of the Ravenstern Kingdom. The archer troop class was recruited by this building and they had their own abilities.

[ Ranger camp: Military building. This was the training camp that the Ravenstern Kingdom had set up in the Misty Mountains. They are the guardians of the northern border. These rangers received training here. Every week, 10 Ravenstern Rangers are available for recruitment. The recruitment fee is 60 denars per person. ]

The system directly popped out an introduction of the ranger camp in Kant’s vision.

Clear and detailed.

However, these rangers, being a Level 4 troop class, were actually 10 denars more expensive than the same level 4 troop class, Vaegirs archers. Kant thought about it careful. These rangers were good at fighting in small groups. They were more powerful and had extremely high accuracy, they were indeed slightly stronger than Vaegirs archers.

After all, the archers of the Kingdom of Vaegirs were the strongest only after they formed into certain scale.

The two countries had different concepts of how archers were used.

Of course, none of them who was stronger or weaker. Only if the troop class coordinated well, and whose archers were more able to deal with the enemy’s attack. After all, Vaegirs archers who were used to fighting on the snowy plains and grasslands, or on the plains, they definitely could not be compared to the Ravenstern rangers who were used to fighting in the deep mountains and forests. Each of them had their own strengths and weaknesses!

Kant thought in his heart.

This ranger camp was built next to the Vaegirs shooting range. It was also close to the direction of the city wall stairs.

The two buildings provided 10 archers per week for recruitment. As long as there was any situation, Kant could directly recruit these archers to fill the current shortage of archers on the city wall.
