Following this, Zhao Fu brought a large number of people and soldiers back to Great Qin. Zhao Fu had conquered four system main cities but had only taken three, leaving one behind to use as a base for his soldiers. This location was quite important, and Zhao Fu did not want anyone making any trouble for him.
Moreover, by leaving a city here, they could continue to be on their guard against the eastern side's regions.
Of the four system main cities, only one of the City Lords had resisted, which was the City Lord Zhao Fu had killed. In front of Great Qin's massive army, they would not have the ability to resist anyway.
After returning to Great Qin, a soldier came to report that Great Qin had killed a City Lord, subdued two City Lords, conquered three system main cities, and brought back a large number of residents and soldiers.
By now, Great Qin's population was at 30.2 million people, so Zhao Fu expanded the military to 5.5 million soldiers. There were 3.8 million Stage 1 soldiers, 80,000 Stage 2 soldiers, and 2,000 or so Stage 3 soldiers.
They also had 42 Great Cities, 5 Cities, 30 Towns, and 2,669 Villages.
After conquering and relocating the seven system main cities, the Great Qin City obtained a large amount of EXP, and it once again leveled up.

The Great Qin City was now a Level 3 Great City, and it had not been long since it had last leveled up. Now, there were two levels remaining until it could become a Capital City.
The final two levels were called Sub-Main City and True Main City.
Leveling up to a Sub-Main City required 42 million EXP, and it would take quite some time to obtain such an enormous amount of EXP. Only by continuously attacking system main cities would they be able to obtain so much EXP.
They had now conquered the eastern side, so only the western side, northern side, and southern side were left.
Great Qin had returned to clearing out regions. They had just finished clearing out one region. There were two more, so they still had seven regions to clear out.
In the eyes of ordinary people, this speed was already incredibly fast, but to Zhao Fu, it was still much too slow. However, there was nothing he could do about this, and him being impatient could not make anything happen faster.
A few days later, it was once again time to trade in the outside world. As Great Qin expanded its army, they needed more and more soldiers' corpses, the higher the Stage the better.
They also needed Talisman Stones. Great Qin now had two million pieces of Talisman Equipment, but there were only one million sets of both weapons and defensive equipment, which meant that they could only fully equip one million soldiers.
Within a private room, Zhao Fu and Roxi sat as they talked. From Roxi, Zhao Fu heard that the Devil Horn Empire was indeed attacking the Lantong people and Grassi people.
The Devil Horn Empire was that Level 1 Dukedom, and they were from the Devil Race and had short horns on their heads. Now, the Lantong people and Grassi people had allied together, or else they would not be able to resist the Devil Horn Empire's invasion. However, despite this, the Lantong people and Grassi people were still at a disadvantage.
After hearing about this, Zhao Fu couldn't help but feel nervous. If the Lantong and Grassi worlds could not defend against this invasion, the human world would have no chance at all.
If the Devil Horn Empire destroyed these two worlds, their next target would definitely be the newer worlds, as newer worlds were like free meat to everyone else.
Because of the massive battles between the three sides, the Swan Goose Group had been able to obtain one million Stage 1 soldier corpses, 50,000 Stage 2 soldier corpses, and 5,000 Stage 3 soldiers corpses.
Zhao Fu was very pleased with these numbers, but he felt an ache in his heart as that was another 25 million gold coins gone.
Moreover, apart from the corpses, there were also Talisman Stones. There were 1.4 million White grade Talisman Stones, 150,000 Blue grade Talisman Stones, 30,000 Silver grade Talisman Stones, and 340 Gold grade Talisman Stones, which were worth another few million gold coins.
In total, the cost came to 30 million or so gold coins. After spending so much money, Zhao Fu could not help but think about how much money he had left. For a while now, Zhao Fu had been paying with the equipment that they had obtained from the players they had slaughtered in that massive battle, and he had used up 40% of that equipment. If he continued to spend money like this, they would run out of money sooner or later.
However, if they were able to obtain these corpses, Great Qin would have 3.2 million spare Stage 1 corpses, while the Stage 2 and Stage 3 corpses would all be used immediately. Great Qin did not lack Stage 1 corpses anymore, so Zhao Fu's main focus was on higher Stage corpses and higher Grade Talisman Stones.
They greatly lacked both of these things, and Zhao Fu also wanted to think of a way to earn a large amount of money to support Great Qin's heavy expenditure.
Great Qin had opened up paths to 170 regions and had used up all of its Void Crystals. Through its businesses in the various regions, Great Qin earned roughly 700,000 gold coins per day, but they had to use some of that money on other matters.
They could only afford to spend 500,000 gold coins per day, which was five million in ten days. Currently, they did not have enough money to continue spending like this.
However, these things were all things that Great Qin needed, so Zhao Fu could not afford to be stingy. Zhao Fu gave a spatial ring to Roxi, and Roxi smiled brilliantly as she took a look then put it away and said, "Guest, is there anything else that you need?"
Zhao Fu bitterly smiled and shook his head. Now that he did not have as much money, he could not continue to recklessly spend money.
Roxi did not feel disappointed, as Zhao Fu had already spent more than 50 million gold coins at the Swan Goose Group, and it was the first time that they had encountered such a rich customer.
If they did not know that he had an extraordinary identity, they would have wanted to rob him just to see how much money he had.
Because of her trades with him, Roxi's position in the Swan Goose Group became higher and higher, and the Swan Goose Group's overall strength became a bit stronger as well.
When a Group had an immense fortune, it would develop its own faction. After all, without enough strength, one's money would simply belong to someone else sooner or later.
"I'll be going now, Miss Roxi." After completing the trade, Zhao Fu planned to leave. Now, it could be said that he was friends with Roxi.
Roxi smiled and nodded before thinking of something, and she called in three beautiful women and said, "Guest, you're a VIP of our Swan Goose Group, so this is a small gift from us. They're virgins and are skilled at serving others."
Seeing this, Zhao Fu smiled and refused. He could not trust anyone right now, as he could not risk exposing his identity. Moreover, Zhao Fu did not lack women, and there were still many women Zhao Fu had not even touched yet.
Roxi did not try to force Zhao Fu, and she instead looked at him with appreciation. She felt that he was not someone who was ruled by lust – after all, these three female attendants had been specially picked out by the Swan Goose Group. Their looks and temperaments were excellent, and ordinary people would not be able to refuse them. However, she did not know of Zhao Fu's reputation in the Legacy Land.
