Bringing the Farm... - Chap 95 (Sponsored)


Chapter 95 - Once and for All


-This chapter was sponsored by Brent T (Australia). I would like to thank this three time award winning champion donator!


Now was not the time for Zhao to ask Drunk about the situation in the carrion swamp. There were plenty of opportunities to ask something like that in the future, but now they had other matters to attend to.

After more than two hours, Brick had reached the canyon. The canyon was a good location to make camp, a flat area between two mountains that had a small stream. Also, because of the flat terrain, this place made it difficult for people to hide and ambush them.

But not for Zhao. Any place can become a place of ambush, since he could make his army instantly appear in a patch of the canyon.

Zhao and Meirin stepped out of the space and carefully looked over the canyon's terrain. They couldn't get a good look at the opposite party since there weren't any decent hiding places closer than this. This spot was their only option.

Meirin had a certain understanding of the battlefield. If this army was just made up of some random fighters, then with Zhao's power, they would be able to defeat them. But if this army was unified under the command of someone rich in battle experience, then exterminating them would not be so easy. Such a person would be difficult to deal with.

After seeing the canyon, they returned to the space.

They went to the living room in the villa to watch the screen. It was a good time, so Zhao then called Drunk to tell him what happened in the carrion swamp.

The news that Drunk gave him disappointed Zhao a little, even though he expected it. Their job was just to explore the edge of the carrion swamp, so they didn't really gain any insights into the place nor did they find any powerful undead or spirit beasts. Most importantly, they weren't able to get any plants. The area they were searching was like an enormous muddy pond that was difficult to walk in, slowing down their actions.

The first layer of the carrion swamp was a lifeless marsh. Fortunately, the undead that came along with Drunk and the black mages, under Zhao's command, were born from the carrion swamp. The undead had been living in the swamp their entire life, to the point where they could move around by instinct. It was where they were born, grew up, died, and became undead. The carrion swamp was their home.

That was exactly why the carrion swamp was a powerful place. The spirit beasts that died there became undead creatures that was able to slowly level up. The only other place in the Continent that had such capabilities was Deep Magic. People believed that there was a devil in Deep Magic that was able to bring you back to life if you had a reason to continue living after you died.

It was because the carrion swamp was a place that constantly produced undead that made it so strong. Since the carrion swamp was where you could turn dead animals into undead and the fact that it has killed so many experts, it became known as a special place that was off limits.

This was why Zhao told Drunk to be careful. They had to first explore the swamp to better understand it before stirring up trouble. Even though this time Drunk and the black mages didn't gain anything, next time they would prepare for a more in depth look inside the carrion swamp.

After Drunk told Zhao everything that happened, he put the black mages away, then quietly sat in the living room while watching the screen. But Meirin noticed that Zhao simply wasn't paying attention to what was happening on the screen, and was probably thinking over Drunk's words.

"Master, although Drunk didn't gain anything, at least they didn't suffer any losses. It's good enough that they survived the carrion swamp. There is a reason why it's worthy of being one of the five forbidden areas in the Continent."

"No, I don't blame Drunk and the other black mages. They did a good job," Zhao said. "I was just thinking of how big of a threat the carrion swamp is. If we want to create farmland and raise animals in the Black Waste, I would prefer if we could find some way to get rid of it.

Meirin frowned. "That is impossible. After so many years, no one has ever conquered the carrion swamp."

"That doesn't mean that we can't try. No one has ever really tried to conquer the carrion swamp because they didn't live near it like we do, so we have to try."

Meirin understood what Zhao meant. The reason why no one has been able to conquer the carrion swamp was because, first, it was too dangerous, and second, no one lived near it. It wasn't like the carrion swamp would ever be a threat to them. They didn't have to suffer through any painful experiences from it. But the Buda clan was different. If they couldn't handle the carrion swamp, then the Buda clan would never develop. Armies of undead spirit beasts could just rush out of the carrion swamp, destroying everything in their path until there was nothing. It was the greatest threat to the Buda clan.

Blockhead and Rockhead had been quietly listening to what Zhao said. At one point, Blockhead couldn't help but say, "Master, the carrion swamp is a big threat, but as long as we have the space, we will be safe. It's too dangerous to go to the carrion swamp. If we die, it doesn't matter. But if Master dies, we wouldn't be able to face our clan's ancestors. You have to be careful."

Blockhead's tone was heavy. When she heard what he said, Meirin's face changed. Recently, because of Zhao's various fantastic accomplishments, she no longer worried about Zhao's safety. But Blockhead's words reminded her that Zhao was the last child of the Buda clan. If anything were to happen to Zhao, then the Buda clan would no longer exist. 

Zhao looked at Blockhead, and he couldn't help but give a wry smile. "You think that I'm messing with the carrion swamp because I want to? The space won't protect us forever. Remember that I drank the Water of Nothingness. I can't learn magic or martial arts, and my body is weaker than the average person. If one day I were to get sick and die, or become old and die, do you think that the space will continue to exist? Once the space is gone, what else do you think the Buda clan has that can resist the carrion swamp?"

From Zhao's words, everyone's face turned white. Zhao waved his hand and continued, "The Water of Nothingness doesn't just affect me. My descendants up to twelve generations would also be unable to learn magic or martial arts. Once I am gone, I fear that it would be impossible for the Buda clan to stop any spirit beast attacks. We need to resolve our situation with the carrion swamp once and for all."

Meirin opened her mouth. She wanted to say something, but in the end she didn't say anything. What Zhao said was true. Zhao's amazing magical space was something the Buda clan depended on. If one day it was really gone, then they would be finished.

In Zhao's eyes, he wanted the Buda clan to endure for generations, so they had to address the threat of the carrion swamp.

    1. On the other hand, this means him having a harem would equal a bunch of talentless children...

    2. in the middle of this story, once hes finally going up against the Royal Family, he will probably acquire the water of nothingness, allowing the space to make an antidote to it and HEAVILY upgrade his spatial water.

    3. normally i would complain about the spoiler but that's so obvious i can't

    4. Well he didn't really spoil it considering that he said "probably".
      ***Slight Spoiler***



      But from what my friends have told me something near that does happen within like the first 350 chapters or something like that.

  2. thanks for the chapter! im also curios about the mystery of the swamp. but more importantly he has to deal with the forces attacking him in stone ridge. if the light mage isnt to op im thinking against 1000's of undead they wouldnt stand much of a chance, mabey uncle green can find a moment to swoop in and kill the mage! shouldnt be impossible with the space portals.

    1. He could just unload all vegetables above the enemy camp. Who said his ability has no offensive power? I doubt that army can resist tons upon tons of vegetables over their head XD
      Fear my power of endless turnips rain! Wahahahahaha!

  3. if he just got a sample of the water of nothingness the space would make the space able to cure it i figured that out when he first tried this shit

  4. I have a theory. If Zhao could place the water of nothingness inside his space... there is a possibility that a cure can be created. I am 99.99% sure (or hoping that the author will do this LOL)

    1. There is also that chance that his spring water would take on the properties of the Water of Nothingness and anyone who drinks it would lose their power... As a support, this is deadly. As an attack, this is damned devastating...

      Take the world for example. If he poisons the water supply with his Water of Nothingness, then you'll get entire cities that cannot use magic or martial arts for 12 generations. If enough cities fall under this, then the stagnation of Human development in those areas would set in. For 12 generations, the population would experience a MASSIVE decline in strength.

    2. All his space has to do is analyze the Water of Nothingness and come to the conclusion that Human Magic and Qi or whatever Energy is "poisonous" and that the Water of Nothingness is a high grade cure for it. Then it'll assimilate the Water of Nothingness' erasing abilities.

      Delete
    3. Wont happen.If i recall well, there was one time Meirin used magic inside the space to bring in a glob of water. At that moment, the space didn't detect the magic energy, so it wont be considered poisonous. Altho that can change, depends on the author. And so far, anything harmful, poisonous and useless has been eliminated by the space so far, so the spring will provide the cure, BUT....most likely the herbicide will gain the water of nothing ness effect, or some way to use it like that.

      Delete
    4. She did bring the lakes water and hot spring water, but I dont remember she bringing water of nothingness :p (at least not yet)
      I think it would work too. Maybe it would fail if the space considers the effect useless for farming(it feels like its not really a toxin that can be added to the herbicide, seems more likely some kind of virus that infects anyone who drinks the infected water, aka water of nothingness). I really doubt it would consider its effect as something good and add its property to the vegetables.

  5. That sounds like a pretty awesome devil tbh... Assuming he's not reviving people as mindless undead (if that was the case then why revive only people who want to continue living), but rather undead with human thoughts...

    If that's the case, that'd be like one of the nicest devils ever xD

  8. Thanks for the chapter!

    Yes, long term thinking is always good, and he did it after taking care of the short term.

  9. So I have been reading ahead like...a lot.
    The MTL for this series is funny, It translates a lot of stuff into terms having to do with warcraft.
    The translation for Spirit Beasts (according to the MTL im using) is World of Warcraft or just Warcraft.
    Spirit Beasts = World of Warcraft;Warcraft
    Minotaur = Tauren
    Beast-kin or Beastmen = ORC
    Undead = Not died biological
    Poison = HIV
    Radish = semen raphani(Chinese for Radish seeds, still... lol) So in the MTL I read this... a lot "Magic Semen" so... lol
    Example: "this magic semen raphani eat up is delicious" lol...

    Whoever programed the MTL must have played a lot fo warcraft.

  10. Zhao brings Water of Nothingness into the Space.
    [Discovery of toxic substances. Opening host protection program. Extracting toxins. Toxin analysis complete. A toxin that disperse the mana and battle qi from inside the body. Creating the antidote. Antidote creation complete. Please drink the spatial water. Using newly discovered toxins to strengthen robotic objects]
    Zhao: "Now its time for revenge! WAHAHAHAHAHAAHA!"

    XD just kidding XD
    But I really wonder why he didnt try this yet... T_T

    Thanks for the translation!

    1. I think its partially because he feels "normal" since he is use to not having incredible abilities beyond "the space", doesn't have or have access to a sample of the water, and/or has not really thought about it...you know, cause he is all busy with his farm, trying to make money, oogling celebrity look-alikes, and everything else...

  11. Meatbun delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    Wow.. i wonder when he's going to confess?

  12. the space has wonderous abilitys if the water of notingness is a poison then can't the space make an antidot or if when he get magcal beasts the space will improve his body in contrast whith his strongest magical beast or he can make the space analyse the others body and his to find the abnormality and corect it i find it stupid to not think of those solutions and there maybe more what if every time the space level up he get some bonus in his body like strengthening to better manage the space there are so many possibilitys for our MC to turn OP

    1. 1) The space MIGHT beable to make an antidote for the WoN, if he had a sample. which he doesn't since its a closely guarded national treasure (or sumthing like that)Though... im sure we can all agree if he wanted to, he could steal a sample pretty easily... but for plot reasons, probably not going to happen

      2) THe space does not improve people, the space can only improve itself. It is a game, and it takes in new "code" to improve game pieces and abilities but it cant improve the player. But it can improve the tools in the game the player uses.

      And the space cant cure him of the WoN because by the time he recovered from its effects it was probably out of his system. damage already done.

    2. There is a thing called step by step, it mean than before running, one should start by crawling then walking.

      What i mean is breaking throught the defence of a castle and then risking of having the whole kingdom searching for them is probably not their top priority. Specially since healing him from the WoN will not bring them anything on the short term aside problem. Nvm MC love for being low profil.

      As for beast they barely have enough to afford the worst of the worst. Why speaking of the far(? ) future. Which will only be seen as filler right now ?

      Last thing people don't usualy plan for thing they don't believe they can fix. They don't know of MC is protected by plot armor. I mean if they thought they could heal it, why saying 'what will happen to the buda clan when MC die and they lose the farm given his children will also be affected by WoN for the next 10 gen'.

  15. About f***ing time he mentioned that all his descendants will be cripples for the next 500+ years, jeez it was like everyone was forgetting that it didn't matter if he died since everyone born would just be a waste they wouldn't have his farm so his clan is pretty much going to be extinct unless he can miraculously cure the water of nothingness effect. Witch should really only require him to get a drop and put it in his space
