God and Devil World / God and Devil World Chapter 823
After 20 seconds, the main display shone with a box as a metallic voice sounded, “Please enter the password!”
Luo Qing Qing watched quietly. The Storm Imperial City was a high-tech weapon, she naturally had tried to work it before. She had found the hatch to insert the nucleus before and was stuck at the password stage. She did not have it after all.
Yue Zhong pulled out a cable, intending to connect Bai Yi to the main computer, however, he discovered that both ends were incompatible, “The cables are of different ends, I can’t connect you.”
“There’s no need. At such close proximity, the radar waves are enough! Please wait a moment!”
After that, the handheld tablet began to emit waves outwards again, as Bai Yi’s eyes turned to data and numerals.
The main display of the central computer suddenly flashed, as a password was keyed in automatically. The voice message was canceled, and they were in.
“Welcome, Controller with ‘S’ Class access!”
A metallic voice sounded its congratulations from the central computer.
Behind, Luo Qing Qing and Liu Mei’er saw this and their eyes were wide with shock, “What! He actually managed to gain control!”
“Currently, the Battleship only has 10% energy left, data connection damage at 23%, the power system is intact, weapon system damage at 32%, energy shield converters intact, shield systems intact. Please insert a Type 7 nucleus to operate the Battleship!”
After a series of tests, the results were displayed for Yue Zhong to see.
Yue Zhong laughed bitterly when he saw this, “Type 7 Mutant Beast nucleus?”
Not to mention a Type 7 Mutant Beast nucleus, Yue Zhong did not even have a Type 6 one. The Type 5 Nuclei in his hands were not many, only 3, of which one had been given to Greenie. Of the other 2, 1 was fuel for the light-gold Sun Battle Armor, which left him with only 1.
There was no way for Yue Zhong to obtain a Type 7 Nucleus at this point. Those monsters were creatures that could cause disasters with just their movements.
The Type 7 Sea Snake Emperor had stirred up a storm out in the middle of the sea, causing tsunamis every few seconds. Few intelligent life forms would stay out there because each time there was a war between the overlords, the terrifying storms that ensued would consume any weaker life forms.
Yue Zhong asked, “I only have Type 4 and Type 3 Nuclei! How many would the Battleship need?”
“In order to fully exhibit the capabilities of the Battleship, it would require 1 Type 7 Nucleus, 40 Type 6 Nuclei, 800 Type 5 Nuclei, 8,000 Type 4 Nuclei, or 80,000 Type 3 Nuclei.”
When he heard that terrifying figure, his scalp went numb. The battleship might be truly terrifying in terms of combat strength, but its energy consumption was likewise fearsome.
Although he had the means to hunt Type 3 Mutant Beasts, who knew how long it would take to hunt 80,000.
Even the Storm Valley with its long history would not be able to take out 80,000 Type 3 Nuclei just like that.
Luo Qing Qing saw the list and heaved a sigh of relief. If Yue Zhong had no means of taking out so many nuclei, then the Imperial City was going to stay.
Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed as he asked, “The Power System! If just that, how many Type 3 Nuclei would it require?”
“If using the Power System, without the Energy Shields, it would require 5,000 Type 3 Nuclei.”
“What about a single trip of about 10,000 km, how many then?”
“500. However, if using too little of them, it would not be a reusable source. After 10,000 km, the 500 Type 3 Nuclei would crumble into dust due to over-expenditure.”
Yue Zhong’s heart eased slightly and smiled, “That’s enough!”
Yue Zhong had obtained a mountain of nuclei from the stomach of the Type 6 Mutant Beast inside the Sea of Mutant Beasts. The majority of it had been Type 3 Nuclei, with over 3,000 of them, it would be enough to support the Storm Battleship for a flight of 60km.
The only downside was that all the combat features would be locked out, and the powerful energy shields could not be utilized due to the shortage of energy.
Even so, a floating city was able to give Yue Zhong a slight sense of security in this dark and cruel world.
“Please insert the nuclei!”
An alloy door opened up in front of Yue Zhong.
With a wave of his hands, he pulled out 500 of the Type 3 Nuclei inside his storage ring and dumped them into the hatch.
Luo Qing Qing and Liu Mei’er were truly speechless this time. Storm Valley was a huge faction with hundreds of years in history, even they would find it tough to muster 500 Type 3 nuclei at a moment’s notice. Yue Zhong had simply waved them out of thin air.
The Storm Valley’s wealth and inheritance grew by dozens of Type 3 Nuclei every year, but in these hundreds of years, through the endless combat, there would likewise be consumption as well. Hence, their Type 3 Nuclei were not a lot.
In terms of resources, the faction that had the most nuclei would be the Dino-people. The Stegosaurus Kingdom alone would already have more than Yue Zhong. While Storm Valley might be a hegemon among the human factions, compared to the Dino-people, it was barely a small-size group.
Yue Zhong looked at the brightened central computer, his eyes flashing with satisfaction, before turning to speak to Luo Qing Qing, “Let’s talk about our forces working together to destroy the Pterosaur Mountain.”
Luo Qing Qing shook her head, “I’m afraid that’ll have to wait.”
Yue Zhong’s gaze turned sharp, as his smile disappeared, “Why?”
After this short period of communication, Yue Zhong was sure that Luo Qing Qing would not go back on her words. For her to turn down his request, there must be some reason.
Her face turned sullen as she replied, “We just suffered a devastating attack on Cracked Tooth Gorge. Our Green Region has now lost its defense, the Stegosaurus Kingdom would definitely make use of that to invade Green Region and hunt. None of our factions can stand up against them. We have no choice but to evacuate now.”
Luo Qing Qing had governed Storm Valley for a number of years and had clashed against the Stegosaurus Kingdom plenty of times. She was clear on their ability to deal with Low-grade Dino-Generals, but against the Mid-grade ones, unless she suddenly broke through to the Type 5 Divine Warrior realm, it would not mean much. Even if she relied on the Storm Armor, in a frontal clash, she was not a match for a Mid-grade Dino-General yet.
Once the Stegosaurus Kingdom got through the Cracked Tooth Gorge, the entire Green Region would become their hunting grounds. Other than fleeing and hiding, the humans could only pray they would not be found.
Yue Zhong’s heart sank when he heard this. The Dino-people were in control over a large part of this world. He was not overconfident to think that he could defend against their invasion.
Luo Qing Qing suddenly said, “Yue Zhong, although it’s a bit sudden, I hope that you’ll allow our Storm Valley people to stay in the Imperial City. If we work together, we can escape from them!”
Now that the Storm Valley belonged to Yue Zhong, Luo Qing Qing could only ask Yue Zhong for help. If they did not have this airborne castle, the hundreds of thousands of people in Storm Valley would perish out in the world filled with Mutant Beasts, prehistoric beasts, ferocious dinosaurs and Mutant Bugs. They would not even make it past a hundred kilometers if they fled on foot.
It was possible that even before the Dino-people made their move, the hundreds of thousands of people might die along the way, after all, they were at the bottom of the food chain. There were plenty of predators out there.
The Storm Valley, Pterosaur Mountain, and Sun Alliance had all built cities to gather the strength of people and their intelligence, hanging on in Green Region. Only then they could survive in this world, those factions that were chased away or banished would sooner or later perish at the hands and jaws of various beasts.
Yue Zhong looked at Luo Qing Qing and replied, “Luo Qing Qing, you should know that my people need this Battleship as well! By being on this ship, your people will take up living space. If you want to stay, you’ll have to fork out the right price!”
Luo Qing Qing gritted her teeth, “100 Type 3 Mutant Beast nuclei and a single Type 4 Nucleus!”
Yue Zhong responded, “Not enough! I want you guys to listen to my orders at the necessary time to fight the Dino-people. If you can agree to this, on top of the Mutant Beast nuclei you just promised, I can let you guys come on board.”
Luo Qing Qing gritted her teeth to reply, “Alright! But, our Storm Valley would not accept suicide mission.”
Yue Zhong agreed, “Sure!”
After hesitating a while, Yue Zhong retrieved a glass vial with a drop of golden blood in it, handing it to her, “This should be able to absolve you of the poison.”
Luo Qing Qing took it, her heart shaking with emotions. However, she did not consume it straight away, instead, looking at Yue Zhong warily, “What do you want?”
