There were too many people in the Xingyue tribe who weren’t capable of fighting, and it was extra important to keep them safe.
After everyone thought for a while, Ah Jiu spoke first.
“There should be a fence.”
Most tribes built fences, mostly made of wood with spikes.
Tribes with a lot of warriors would send people on shift watch at night to prevent nocturnal beasts from entering the tribe and taking people away.
The fence was definitely necessary, but at this point Ah Jiu added: “a stone fence.”
Making a fence out of stone was equivalent to raising a fence. It required a lot of manpower and a lot of work.
Small tribes didn’t have so much manpower, and the large tribal range was too large, it was better to send people to keep watch.
Therefore, the theory was feasible, but few tribes actually did it.
Guoguo asked him: “If we build it, of course, it’ll save manpower, but we have to quarry the stone, and then move it back, it won’t be easy to do for a while! We built wooden houses easily because the woods are very close, the wood can also be dragged back. The stones are too heavy, except for Tian Yang and Yue Dong, no one else can be of much use, right?”
But Rong Yue agreed with Ah Jiu: “This is a good proposal, very suitable for us.”
Guoguo turned to him: “Sacrifice Yue has a way?”
Rong Yue smiled mysteriously: “Yes, when I make it, I’ll show you. Let’s put this aside for now, do you guys have any other proposals?”
Defending the tribe, in addition to facilities, of course, there must be people.
Bai Tao hesitated for a long time, finally made up her mind and said, “Lord Yue, I think, we can try to use the three Yang brothers.”
Guoguo and Ah Jiu were surprise and looked towards her in unison.
Bai Tao continued bitterly: “As you can see, our tribe’s strong men can be counted on one hand. At present, everything that is useful has to be included in the hunting group. According to my observation, the only men that have not been out of the tribe these days are the Yang brothers…”
Guoguo quickly retorted: “But they are not good people! You also said it, they are lazy and bad, before the bottom of the valley, they robbed me of my scorpions ……”
Guoguo suddenly paused, “Although they left me one. But so what, they’re still bad.”
“The three of them are disabled, but they are also stronger than many old and weak, and staying in the tribe to do logistics is the best arrangement.” Bai Tao sighed and looked at Rong Yue: “What I said the other day was a little heavy, in fact, they’re not so bad that they deserve to die.”
Seeing that Guoguo and Ah Jiu didn’t say anything else, Rong Yue and Tian Yang then passed Bai Tao’s proposal.
They’d try it first, and then adjust it if it didn’t work, it wouldn’t be a loss.
And rather than them take out, it was better t leave them in the tribe doing nothing, at least they could work.
The matter of the three Yang brothers was put aside, and they discussed the matter of quarrying stones.
According to Bai Tao’s information, there was a rocky mountain 50 miles east of her original Creek tribe.
It was a little further away, and it was estimated to be about a day’s walk.
“Creek tribe used to quarry stone there. There are some smaller tribes nearby, and I don’t know them all.”
Rong Yue clapped his hands pleasantly: “Good, then we will go to the quarry together, explore the road and catch the prey. If there are any rabbits and pheasants, catch some live ones back, and Li Shui will have something to do.”
After discussing with Yue Dong, they tentatively decided to leave in three days.
Rong Yue and Tian Yang went to the forest once again and cut some trees back. Rong Yue hadn’t given up the opportunity to upgrade, he never let Tian Yang do what he could handle, over time, they formed a tacit understanding.
After returning, the crowd curiously watched Rong Yue fiddling with the pile of wood.
Cutting boards was something that the tribe was just used to doing, and many people volunteered to help Rong Yue get it done. The boards were cut extremely thick, plus the quality of the trees were good, when put together into a large wooden board, it gave a feeling of security.
Rong Yue summoned holy light with his staff and melted out six identical round wheels with holes in the middle.
Everyone was in awe: “Sacrifice Yue, what is this for?”
Rong Yue asked Tian Yang to lift up the thick wooden board on one side, and set the wheels three on a side next to the board: “It’s a ‘car’. The round wheels can save energy, and we will use it to transport the stones.”
“Save energy?” Bai Tao was quite curious: “Add wheels to save energy?”
Rong Yue nodded: “When it’s installed, you will know when you try it yourselves.”
The axle and the fixing, were all realized with the help of the old craftsmen who built the wooden house before. Listening to Rong Yue’s vision, they figured it out after pondering for a while, which made Rong Yue admire their enlightenment a lot.
He himself had only learned some more general knowledge because of the different worlds, he was slightly better than the people here, but his knowledge wasn’t comparable with those “players”.
Every book that the players gave him, Rong Yue felt quite astonished.
Finally, it took half a day, a wooden car that could sit a dozen people was built!
It didn’t have a guardrail, it was rough and simple.
But where had they seen such things? The novelty was too much, they wait to go up one by one.
Standing in front of him, Bai Tao was the first to pull up the rope in front of the car and put it on her body.
“Shall I just walk forward like this?” She, who had always been calm, couldn’t hide her excitement and had bright eyes at the moment.
Seeing Rong Yue nod, she took a deep breath and took a forceful step forward–
It moved, it moved!!!
The crowd was in an uproar!
Just now this big plank was lifted with the combined efforts of four men!
Although these four people didn’t have the divine power of Lord Tian Yang, they were still four men!
But after Sacrifice Yue added these “wheels”, even a woman like Bai Tao could pull it!
Sacrifice Yue was really great!
Two days ago, the topic of who was qualified to be the chief between Sacrifice Yue and Lord Tian Yang had been quietly circulating among the crowd. Many people were grateful to Sacrifice Yue, yet they felt that in terms of ability, it still belonged to Lord Tian Yang.
When Sacrifice Yue said he could also participate in the hunt, many people didn’t believe, but now, looking at his actions, they no longer felt uncomfortable.
How much more whimsical ideas did Sacrifice Yue have?
How could they say that Sacrifice Yue wasn’t capable!
After two days of rest and preparation of adequate food, the “quarry exploration team” led by Rong Yue, Tian Yang, Yue Dong, Ergou, Guo Guo, Bai Tao and Yang San, officially set out.
Last night, Rong Yue had summoned the “exploration team” to the tent for emergency training on finding crops.
The three weren’t too stupid, but Guoguo obviously had the best memory. Rong Yue gave the recipe book to her once, yet she could remember at least eight or nine.
Xiao Ergou repeated it a few times then she remembered, but Yue Dong, he scratched his ears the whole night.
On the road, while dragging the car, Yue Dong kept muttering: “Eggplant …… corn …… red pepper …… ”
The crops in this world were similar and different from the Xingyue Era.
According to the elimination method of Yue Dong and Tian Yang, it had been confirmed that at least twenty to thirty common vegetables existed here.
They had seen them before, they just didn’t know they were edible and had never tried them.
There was a small bag of seeds in Rong Yue’s package, but unfortunately most of them were flower seeds and couldn’t be eaten.
The only exotics were the seeds of peach and orange trees, which were handed over to him by mistake by a player during one of the game missions.
In the NPC strategy of the Xingyue Chronicles, it was written that Rong Yue loved to grow flowers and was more partial to yellow flowers ……
In fact, although Rong Yue didn’t dislike the flowers, it wasn’t as deep as love.
If he had to like a yellow flower, he would rather like the flower of the cucumber vine.
Cucumber with garlic was also a dish he aspired to taste.
He had never eaten it.
The journey was uneventful, he didn’t know if the vegetation in this neighborhood was relatively sparse, even the animals were rarely seen.
Rong Yue followed Tian Yang with his staff in hand, and Xiao Ergou rode on Tian Yang’s shoulders, sniffing from time to time for the smell of animals nearby.
After walking most of the way, Ergou’s nose suddenly twitched: “Abba, Abba, I smell people, many people!”
Tian Yang turned to her, then she remembered: “Lord Tian Yang ……”
Bai Tao frowned: “It shouldn’t be, people are only sent to the stone mountain when the tribe needs stones, how can there be many people gathered in front of it?”
The crowd raised their guard and didn’t forget to look around as they moved forward.
Just like this, they walked for a while, suddenly Bai Tao screamed as her feet fell on empty space, she fell into a hole in the ground!
“Sister Bai Tao!” Guoguo shouted in horror, crouching at the edge of the pit.
The smoke and dust confused her eyes, she couldn’t see for a while, then she saw a familiar reassuring white light flying out, illuminating the dark hole.
The others reacted and moved forward, following the position of the ball of light to check the depth below.
Yue Dong shouted, “Bai Tao-! Are you hurt!”
Echoes burst, after a while, Bai Tao shouted back, her voice was a little shaky, she was probably scared: “I …… I’m fine!”
Yang San breathed a sigh of relief. He was just about to help them find a way to pull her up. Suddenly, he felt that the soles of his feet hurt, as if he had stepped on something different.
He squatted down to look… It was actually a piece of rope.
He was acutely aware of something and loudly reminded, “Be careful! It’s people! It’s people who dug holes!”
However it was a step too late.
Suddenly out of nowhere a group of people jumped out, there were 30 or 40.
Rong Yue and the others were surrounded by the sharp tips of spears and bows and arrows, circling them in the middle, as if they were hunting them as animals.
The leader of the group had a vicious face with a small bump on top of his head.
He stepped forward and opened his mouth, his saliva sticking between his separated upper and lower teeth, distinctly disgusting.
“There is poison in the cave, and your companion will die soon. If you want the antidote, hand over the food you’re carrying!”
Silence spread in the air.
Rong Yue,still kneeling at the entrance of the cave to check the situation of Bai Tao, took a long time to finally confirm that she was okay, before slowly standing up.
He just turned around, when he saw the face of the leader, he quickly looked away: “Oh my God, you’re so ugly.”
The boss of the group: “……”
The boss’s eyes were dark, and he was about to explode from anger. He saw the beautiful white haired priest point in his direction: “Wait!”
The words choked in his throat and choked until his lungs ached. Finally, the boss resisted his anger and answered, “what are you going to say!?”
Only to see the white-haired priest push the tall warrior beside him and speak gleefully, “Tian Yang look, the piece of grass that they trampled down, is that a twist!?”
Tian Yang looked at it in appreciation, “Yes, it’s a small bush, but it really is.”
Rong Yue: “We found twisted seeds! I just don’t know if this wild seed is good ……”
They felt choked.
The people surrounding them all felt a great sense of humiliation.
A mere team of five people, why were they not afraid of them!?
How could they not be afraid of them!
