Chapter 55. 3000 Gold Coins And A Letter From The Kyle Family!
Lynn collected the gold coins and began to sense for any mana in the air. After a few breaths of time, Lynn shook his head in disappointment. There was no mana in the surrounding area, but that was normal. The Kumori family was a typical nobleman who kept to the wine business to make a grand sum of money.
These kinds of people would pay for money to seek asylum from other nobles or tried to vassalize others in order to gain their protection. The main family did not want to increase their own strength because they felt satisfied with this kind of quid pro quo. This meant that these families did not spend money on potions or magic equipment.
Lynn looked for other items in the house. There were five rooms on the second floor, and after searching around he already found two hundred gold coins. Lynn gave the money to a half beast to keep and then went up to the third floor. This would be where Klizi’s sons and daughters lived, so there would obviously be more wealth.
Under a bed in the first room, Lynn found a chest which was smaller than the one in Ino’s castle. The box was heavy too. Lynn opened up the lock and found that the entire container was filled with gold coins. Lynn poured out the money and started to count them. There were 750 gold coins! This person was too rich. Moreover, Kumori’s castle was better than Ino’s with four floors in total and this room was obviously not Klizi’s, yet it contained 750 gold coins.
Lynn put the money back into the container and gave it to a warrior for safe keeping. After exploring through the rest of the rooms, Lynn was a little disappointed. The first room must have belonged to the eldest sun as the other boxes in the other rooms only contained fifty gold in total. Lynn collected the coins and trotted up to the fourth floor.
There were only two large rooms on the next floor. One was a study while the other was a bedroom. Lynn randomly chose the room to the right and pushed the door in. Inside was Klizi’s bedroom, so Lynn walked up to the bed and looked under it. The nobles here really do seem to like to hide their chests under their beds.
Klizi’s container was noteably larger than the other ones, so Lynn dragged it out and put it to his side. What came along with the chest were two pieces of women’s clothes. They looked familiar to Lynn. There seemed to be someone wearing similar clothing among the women who just died. When she was found, it appeared she was a servant’s wife and was living with him. The life of the nobles in this manor must have been really chaotic.
Once Lynn understood this, he stopped giving his attention to the matter and looked at Klizi’s chest. The box was more luxurious than the others as it had gold patterns carved into it. Lynn carefully opened the lock as the last time in Ino’s castle he was almost shot. The event was ingrained into Lynn’s memory which caused him to be careful.
Sure enough, once the container was opened a burst of purple smoke rushed out of the box. Lynn moved away and closed his eyes until the smoke cleared before he went to examine the loot. Once he saw what was inside, he became excited.
There was an abundance of gold coins inside the chest. The Kumori family had no potions, but they were immensely rich! Lynn poured out the money and began to count the gold. There were two thousand gold coins inside! Lynn took a deep breath, but the excitement in his heart could not be suppressed! There were a total of three thousand gold coins as his bounty this time! This would amount to a large sum of food.
Using sixty gold coins, you could buy the necessary supplies to feed one hundred warriors for a month. With three thousand gold coins Lynn could raise five thousand warriors for a month, and he already had plans to increase his army to one thousand troops. Once they were fully equipped Lynn would be able to push back other territories that did not have a beast army.
Lynn took out the gold coins and had his half beasts collect it. The warriors also became excited as this was going to pay for their food in the future. Lynn turned around and went to the study, although he did not expect much. The absence of potions also proved that the family did not have any desire for knowledge. Sure enough, once Lynn pushed the door open he realized that it was not as fruitful as Ino’s study.
The study only contained one large bookcase that was pushed against a wall. There were probably less than a hundred books on the shelves. The contents of the books were less biographies of heroes, and more small books for men. Lynn casually read one and put it down as he was ready to sell them. With the amount of books here, all of them would sell for about twenty gold coins.
The furniture in this room was of good quality, in contrast to the few books here. Lynn had ran for an entire day, so he was a little tired and sat down at the desk. He casually flipped through the letters on Klizi’s desk when he found a familiar style of handwriting on one of the letters. When Lynn was in the Kyle family, he often saw this handwriting in the study. It belonged to the Patriarch of Kyle. As expected, the Kyle family was related to this war. Lynn opened the letter and read it.
“Your Excellency Klizi, I have sent you the equipment needed, the three hundred soldiers, and the five hundred gold coins. This time, please be sure to kill Lynn and make him understand the humble blood of the Kyle family. Restore our honor by slaying him. If you win, by the glory of our family, the Marquis of Gauffer will be more than happy to complete the agreement with the Marquis of Tellen.”
