Starting Life as a Baron - Chapter 48
Chapter 48: Training Mission
After sending Anna off, Alan and Sparrow rode back to the castle.
“Sparrow, I’ll give you fifty thousand gold coins to expand the scale of the factory and recruit a large number of workers. From today onwards, we will no longer be poor and the name of Rose Town will resound through the Thorn Flower Territory. Then it will slowly resound through the entire Lane Principality.”
Alan spoke proudly.
Sparrow was also smiling from ear to ear. He knew that Rose Town would completely change from today onwards and the once impoverished town would become a thing of the past.
This was all thanks to the Lord.
Alan directly gave fifty thousand gold coins to Sparrow to expand the factory. He also told Sparrow to look for him if this money wasn’t enough.
Sparrow left happily.
On the other hand, Alan returned to his study.
Now he had developed a liking for going to the study room to think about things.
“At present, with six spirits of nature, I may not be much worse than the Earldom in terms of agriculture. I am only short of fairies. Since the spirits of nature can be obtained by doing the tasks, then I should be able to obtain fairies as well. Worst-case scenario, I will just exchange a fairy with meritorious deeds when the time comes since the war mission is almost here.”
“In terms of business, Rose Town’s problem has been completely solved. When the factory starts to expand and the goods are sold out, a huge capital chain will form and the economic level of Rose Town will develop by leaps and bounds.”
“What’s left is industry and force.”
“The industry can’t develop for the time being because the territory is too small. What restricts me now is not the backwardness of the territory, but the scope of the territory. Unknowingly, I have already gained strength that far exceeds the Baron’s territory. Right now, what I need most is to upgrade my title.”
“It seems that I can only wait for the war to begin.”
Alan set his sights on the system’s war task column.
Countdown Time: One month and eighteen days.
There was still a month left before the war mission would start.
“Let’s focus on training the warriors, knights, sea cavalry, and wolf cavalry.”
Now that Alan had almost nothing else to do, he just needed to focus on training his own army.
As far as the mission was concerned, the Roland Chamber of Commerce would help him complete it perfectly.
Only three days later, Alan, who was cultivating, received a notification from the system.
“Congratulations to the host for completing the mission and gaining 10,000 Experience points, a potion master!”
Alan showed a slight smile. He had finally completed the mission. Just as he had expected, the speed of the big Chamber of Commerce was different. They had spread the name of Rose Town in Thorn Flower territory in just three days.
Alan immediately calls up the system to check the new mission after the update.
“Mission: Training Troops!”
“The territory has been completely reborn. As a Baron, you have already made great achievements. Perhaps you’re the richest Baron in the entire Principality, but you are just a Baron and desire a higher position.”
“Status and rights are often based on the economy and safeguarded by force.”
“You need a strong army for the upcoming war and the difficulties you will encounter in the future!”
“After three weeks of training, the sea cavalry has achieved great results. They cooperate well, they are high-spirited, and they are eager to conquer the sea!”
“However, they lack training and experience in maritime combat. Lead them through a battle. Maybe you should go to the seaside of the Blue Moon Principality.”
“Mission reward: 3,000 experience points.”
The System’s mission brought a smile to Alan’s face.
“The system really knows my heart very well. I’ve been so busy recently that I haven’t paid much attention to the progress of the sea cavalry. It looks like these guys have completed my mission. Then it is time to visit the Blue Moon Principality.”
Alan quickly completed today’s training mission, then took out his knight sword and walked towards the seaside.
On the way, he saw Marco, who was training his warriors. At this moment, the first batch of warriors was about to finish their training.
Marco told Alan that he was already selecting the second batch of warriors.
Recently, Alan had given Marco a large sum of money to buy weapons, tools for training, and even food for the warriors.
This caused the warriors to be highly motivated, and they were extremely enthusiastic about training.
At the same time, they also received the most complete training. Moreover, in addition to teaching them some combat skills, Alan even equipped them with bows and arrows.
After listening to Marco’s report, Alan smiled and said, “Marco, I’m preparing to equip them with a batch of warhorses!”
Marco was overjoyed when he heard this.
Warhorse!? Do you want to train a group of cavalry?!
The combat power of cavalry was far more than ordinary soldiers.
However, warhorses were a very important resource. Not only were they expensive, but they were also priceless.
That was why only the great nobles could train cavalry.
“My Lord, do you want to train cavalry? Over the past few days, you have been paying a lot of attention to the warriors, sea cavalry, and knights, and now you want to train a large cavalry. My Lord, are you prepared to participate in the war? But I’ve never heard of any recent war going on in the Principality.”
Marco could not help but ask Alan.
