Shadow Hack Chapter 858
The most basic framework of a faction should allow it to rise quickly, while as for foundation, it would require time to be properly created. As long as a faction continued to develop stably, their foundation would also expand sooner or later. For example, the division of power of belief: previously when the power of belief of Asura City was offered to Asura, a small portion of it would go to the people controlling the city.
When the four great clans and city the lord's mansion obtained that power of belief, they could create gods at a steady pace. It was like a rolling snowball, the more time passed, the larger it became.
The situation of Asura City had changed though, and it was no longer certain whether god father would divide the power of belief among the four clans or not.
It was obvious, however, that as someone with authority in the city, the sixth ancestor would receive a portion of power of belief. As long as it was present, why should anyone be afraid of lack of foundation?
Rat's mind moved quickly, thinking about all sorts of plans that could be implemented, and his face began to glow.
Li Yunmu also did not care whether these slum dwellers underneath understood the meaning behind the credit point system or not. He only needed them to know that they could obtain cultivation methods in exchange for work.
While he was observing them, the system's voice rang out in his head. [Youngster, what the hell are you doing?]
"What do you think? After you disappeared for a day, I became one of the rulers of Asura City. But Asura is indeed powerful. He's a quasi master god, only one step away from being above all laws. If I didn't use demonic energy and the dark state, I probably wouldn't be an opponent for him."
Li Yunmu was communicating with the system in his mind.
The moment he spoke, the system laughed and said, [That is only natural. Who do you think created Asura? Although I had taken a wrong path afterwards, which led to this situation of the deficit, but when all is said and done, I am still the creator of all the powerhouses.]
"You really like to brag. Although Asura is only one step away from his goal, he has already congealed the power of faith. If he doesn't have sufficient power of belief, he won't be able to take that step for a lifetime.
"Now that he gave the control of half of Asura City to me, it is just perfect and saves me the trouble of finding my own territory," Li Yunmu said with satisfaction.
From his past conversations with the system, he could guess that there were still many enemies in the world who had yet to show themselves. And based on his world's present strength, those people could not be beaten. Li Yunmu thus wanted to change the strength of the entire Origin World, and for that, he had to start with the ordinary people.
For that, he first had to make the mortals smash the rule of worshiping gods. Then, he would be able to dig out the seeds with potential and push the Origin World to the next step.
But when he did that, the gods of the Origin World would retaliate furiously. After all, who would want to be the target of a revolution?
Originally, Li Yunmu had planned to find a territory in the Origin World for himself. But Asura just happened to hand over the control of half his territory to him, saving him the trouble of finding one for himself. Additionally, given that a battle between gods was going on, he could hide what he was doing. Which ancient god would have the time to pay attention to him during such turbulent times?
When the seven ancient gods fought, the matter of domain would be resolved, and Li Yunmu could also sneak into the divine palace to obtain the Heavenly Grand Ritual.
The plan was simply perfect.
The system was silent for a while before slowly saying, [Are you sure that you want to do this? I can tell you now that if you really break the rule of gods being supreme, then after the master gods return, all the gods will stand opposite to you. Even if you have demonic energy and can use the Dark State, it will be useless.]
"I have thought about it. Since I want to do it, xI will do it. There's no need for so many apprehensions."
The slum dwellers underneath were still discussing what they had heard. A group in the front enquired Rat about what exactly was the credit point system, and he gave them a simple explanation that it was like money. When they heard it, the eyes of all slum dwellers began to shine. By using credit points in place of money, they could obtain a cultivation method? This was a good thing.
They passed this information to those behind them, and excitement appeared on everyone's faces.
Li Yunmu waved his hand and said to the slum dwellers underneath, "Alright, the general assembly ends here. You all go now go and settle inside the colosseum. Wait until the houses are built in a few days, then you can move in. Old Bastard, create a registry of youth and strong men who can create the houses. Rat, follow me."
When all the slum dwellers of lower city were added up, they crossed twenty thousand. If all three floors were used, then everyone would probably find a place to stay. Li Yunmu wanted them to remain within the colosseum until proper houses were constructed for them.
Li Yunmu pulled Brunhilda and walked off the high platform toward the fourth-story building. When they reached the stairs, Rat rushed over and excitedly said, "Lord, the methods your distinguish self uses are really marvelous. Using a credit point system in place of money is much better."
Brunhilda looked at Rat's expression and could not help smiling.
Li Yunmu waved his hand, but did not say anything. The system of credit points was something no one in the Origin World knew. After all. It was something from Earth. Not only that, he had traveled across all five regions of the Origin World, but none of their technological advancement had reached the level of Earth.
In Asura City, he hadn't seen any shops, and for entertainment, they only had the colosseum where monotonous battles were fought.
All the resources were concentrated in the hands of the four great clans, which created a monopoly that benefited only the descendants of the four great clans.
All of that was what had to be changed. Li Yunmu main goal was to remove the gods from their supreme position, so he naturally had to start by allowing the lowest level people to start earning benefits. To make sure that the mortals discard their reverence toward the gods, the most important thing was to provide a direction and give them guidance in regards to fulfilling their ambitions. Otherwise, how could they advance?
"Lord, I think that if this credit point system is used in the lower city, it will become a driving force for everyone. The only problem is that if construction of houses is the only work available, what should be done about women and children? Or if I was to put it differently, since women and children won't have any way to accumulate credit points, how will they survive?" Rat asked with excitement.
"Children cannot be allowed to be neglected while construction is going on. We have to establish a learning palace for them so they can practice cultivation methods and learn about culture. As for women, if they cannot participate in the construction of houses, they can be assigned to weaving and knitting. They then be able to sell clothes for credit points, and we will sell it others to obtain credit points for ourselves," Li Yunmu said in an indifferent tone.
After his words, Rat's eyes went wide. He revealed an incredulous expression while looking at Li Yunmu as if he has seen a ghost. After a long time, he said, "Lord, you really are a genius."
