Although there would be an influx of beasts every few decades, there were still 96 other cities that could withstand the attack, so Su Mo was not worried.
Furthermore, this was only a temporary arrangement for Firmament Sect. Once they grew powerful enough, they would rebuild their main gate and leave Qingyuan City.
“Miss Yunxi, I’ve gained a lot from our conversation today. Now it is getting dark, I shall make my move first!” Su Mo bid her farewell after chatting with Zhao Yunxi for over an hour.
“Master Su Mo, why don’t you stay over for a few days! We could also exchange views on martial arts techniques.” Zhao Yunxi said with a frown.
“Ha ha! I’ve still got some matters to attend to. Next time if I have the chance, I would definitely do so!” Su Mo laughed as he turned down her offer.
He then left the Zhaos.
“Humph! What’s up with him?” Zhao Yunxi was little annoyed to see Su Mo leave just like that.
He had spoken to her for over an hour and all he did was to ask questions either about Central Continent or Qingyuan City. There was not a single moment of idle talk.
Although she had invited Su Mo on the pretext of introducing Central Continent to him, this was not her true intention.
“What an unromantic blockhead!” Zhao Yunxi shook her head helplessly.
She had noticed his extraordinary talent and respected him for that, so she wanted to get to know him better. She had not expected him to be so oblivious!
Zhao Yunxi couldn’t help wondering if it was because she was not pretty enough?
Su Mo strolled along the streets of Qingyuan City after leaving the Zhaos and thought of buying a few properties to settle Firmament Sect down.
Only a sprawling compound like the Zhaos would be enough to house all 40,000 disciples of Firmament Sect.
However, obviously, such a large compound was not for sale at Qingyuan City so Su Mo could only opt for the alternative. He would buy several large mansions to settle Firmament Sect’s disciples across a few locations.
He quickly found a real estate agency and spent close to ten million Upper Spiritual Stones on 3 mansions.
These 3 mansions were already the largest mansions in Qingyuan City for sale. More than 10,000 people could reside within each mansion.
They were all near to each other since they were located along the same street. This would also mean that they could look out for each other in the future.
After he purchased the three mansions, Su Mo released everyone from the Divine Map Realm.
Su Mo sat on the main seat within one of the mansion’s halls, quietly refreshing himself with his eyes closed.
The three hall chiefs including Qing Pingzi and Su Hong had gone off to make arrangements for the disciples under their care.
Proper arrangements must be made for so many people who suddenly found themselves in a foreign land to prevent any unnecessary chaos.
After an hour, all three of them came to the hall where Su Mo was.
“Have the necessary arrangements been made?” Su Mo opened his eyes and asked the trio.
“Yes, Sect Leader! All the disciples have been settled!” Yue Qun said as he saluted Su Mo.
Yue Qun was the most deferential of the three to Su Mo because he had no prior relationship with Su Mo.
As for Su Hong, he was Su Mo’s father, and Qing Pingzi had already gotten along well with Su Mo before he shot to fame, so they were more casual with him.
“Good!” Su Mo nodded and said, “I want you to steadily cultivate in this place and work on increasing your strength in the coming years ahead.”
With a flip of his palm, a storage ring appeared in his hand. He handed this storage ring to his father, Su Hong.
“Father, this storage ring contains over 3 billion Medium Spiritual Stones and tens of thousands of Spiritual herbs and elixirs. Please share them amongst yourselves!”
“3 billion?” they were all stunned. This was an astronomical sum and tens of thousands of spiritual herbs and elixirs would be worth a lot even if they were just of Lv 3, also in the region of 3 billion Medium Spiritual Stones.
Although this amount seemed stunning, but to Su Mo, this was only a tiny bit of his fortune.
He had over 10 billion Medium Spiritual Stones and most importantly, over 2 billion Upper Spiritual Stones.
“Mo’er, where did you get so many Spiritual Stones?” Su Hong couldn’t help asking.
“By looting!” Su Mo replied with a smile.
Cold sweat broke out on their foreheads. How many people had he robbed to amass such a large fortune!
Next, Su Mo produced a few jade slips with another turn of his palm.
“Father, Elder Qing Pingzi and Yue Qun, these are all Martial King Realm level martial techniques. Please feel free to cultivate these techniques and pass them on to those disciples who show talent!” Su Mo passed the jade slips to the trio.
These included the Nirvana Swordplay Skill, Scorched-trees Divine Skill, Black Dragon Fist and Mountains-weight Skill . With the exception of the Grand Chaos Five Elements Skill and the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill, Su Mo had handed them all the martial techniques he had on hand.
Although he didn’t cultivate the Black Dragon Fist, he had already memorized its contents.
Su Mo would gladly give Firmament Sect anything that could strengthen the Sect as soon as possible.
“Martial King Realm martial techniques?” the trio stared at the jade slips, agape. They had never seen martial techniques of such high level before and now that so many had appeared in front of them, they felt like they were dreaming.
“Yes! Please feel free to pick whatever suits you!” Su Mo nodded. He looked toward Qing Pingzi and said, “Elder Qing Pingzi, could I trouble you to summon the Lv 4 craftsman?”
Qing Pingzi came out of his reverie and left to summon the craftsman.
Su Mo waited quietly. He was going to Emperor Xuan Palace, sohe had to make sure he made the suitable arrangements for them before he left.
Su Hong and Yue Qun excitedly browsed through the jade slips in their hands. They couldn’t wait to start cultivating.
10 minutes later, Qing Pingzi returned with an elderly man in tow.
This elderly man was short and skinny, his hair streaked pepper but his eyes were alert.
He stood tall and straight by Qing Pingzi’s side, looking rather arrogant.
As a Lower Lv 4 craftsman, he was held in high regard in Firmament Sect. Even the Qing Pingzi as the Hall Chief, had always been very polite to him.
This was because he was the only Lv 4 craftsman in Firmament Sect!
“Su Mo, this is Liang Tong, a Lower Lv 4 craftsman in Firmament Sect!” Qing Pingzi made the necessary introductions as he entered the hall.
“Greetings to our Sect Leader!” Liang Tong saluted Su Mo, his face expressionless. He was neither overly deferential nor rude to Su Mo.
“Take a seat!” Su Mo nodded and motioned for Liang Tong to sit.
Liang Tong did not demur and sat down by Qing Pingzi’s side.
