On the deck, Blood Crow casually tossed two Space Rings towards Yang Kai.
Yang Kai took it and examined it. This Space Ring was ordinary and didn’t have anything particularly eye-catching, roughly equivalent to the wealth of an ordinary Feudal Lord.
On the other hand, the other Space Ring was quite eye-catching.
This guy… was rich!
The second Space Ring was filled with all kinds of resources, dazzling Yang Kai’s eyes. Although Yang Kai was used to seeing big scenes, he couldn’t help feeling shocked by the richness of this Feudal Lord.
The Black Ink Clan Feudal Lords he had met before weren’t this rich.
Blood Crow said, “Those aren’t his things. The first Space Ring was his, and the second one was taken from the Ink Nest.”
“What do you mean?” Yang Kai raised his head and asked vaguely.
Blood Crow let out a burp and explained, “This guy came from the Black Ink Clan’s King City and is responsible for collecting the resources of the Ink Nest. Let’s put it this way, the Ink Nest’s periphery is divided into several branches of the Black Ink Clan’s Feudal Lords. They send their subordinates out to mine for resources, and among the resources sent back, some of them are for their own use, pouring into the Ink Pond to creat Ink Force to expand the defensive line, while the rest will remain. The King City will send people to collect them regularly.”
Yang Kai suddenly understood.
Right now, for the Black Ink Clan, resources were extremely important. Whether it was expanding the periphery of their defensive line, the Territory Lord-level Ink Nest in the King City, or even the Royal Lord-level Ink Nest, they all required a massive amount of resources.
Even though they had accumulated so much over the years, now that they were trapped in the King City, they had to find a way to replenish themselves.
The source was the mining of the surrounding Black Ink Clan!
No wonder the Black Ink Clan had suddenly come here, it turned out they were here to collect resources. Looking at the storage of this guy’s second Space Ring, it was obvious he had been to many places.
“What else?” Yang Kai asked.
Blood Crow said, “There are about twenty or thirty people in charge of collecting resources like him, all of them scattered in different directions. You should know that the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line is very wide right now, and within a month’s journey from the King City, they are surrounded by the Ink Force, so they need so many people. The Territory Lords won’t do such a tedious task, so the Feudal Lord can only do it by themselves.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly in understanding.
Moreover, this should not be the only reason, the Territory Lords is also afraid of Smiles Old Ancestor. They didn’t know when Smiles Old Ancestor would suddenly appear, so it was naturally safer for them to hide in the King City. Who would dare to come out of hiding?
If they ran into Smiles Old Ancestor, they would have died in vain.
“Interesting!” Yang Kai grinned, suddenly feeling that he could make good use of this opportunity.
He had originally planned to use his previous method to take down the nearby two Ink Nests, but if he really did so, there would be too many uncontrollable factors, and the fact that he was able to take them down before was largely due to luck.
A few more times, and if the Black Ink Clan was vigilant enough, they might be exposed.
But now that he had obtained this information, perhaps he could use another method.
Pretending to be these people collecting supplies should have a different effect.
Yang Kai turned to Shen Ao and ordered, “Send a message to Chai Fang and Ma Gao, tell them not to sneak around outside and have their Team Leader come over. Also, try to contact Yao Kang Cheng and have them withdraw as well.”
“Yes!” Shen Ao quickly took out his Space Spirit Bead and sent out a message.
Holding the Space Ring in his hand, Yang Kai stroked his chin and muttered to himself. Bai Yi and the others saw his eyes darting around and understood that he was definitely up to no good, so they didn’t disturb him.
Soon, Shen Ao raised his head and said, “Chai Fang and Ma Gao have sent back a message. They should be able to arrive in half a day, but we can’t contact Yao Kang Cheng.”
Yang Kai frowned slightly. This Yao Kang Cheng was quite bold, but now that he couldn’t contact him, he could only hope that everything went smoothly.
“All of you stand guard outside, I’ll guard the central command area,” Yang Kai ordered before entering the Ink Nest.
On the deck, Blood Crow rubbed his stomach before turning around and entering the cabin again. He needed to properly digest his harvest. Seeing this, everyone had a chill on their faces.
Half a day later, Yang Kai, who was in charge of the Ink Nest, vaguely sensed that a foreign body had broken into the Ink Nest’s defensive line and immediately sent out a message to alert everyone.
However, not long after, there was another disturbance.
Yang Kai knew that it was Old Turtle and Profound Wind teams.
Sure enough, a moment later, a group of people stealthily snuck in from the outside.
The leader was none other than Chai Fang.
This fellow was also quite smart. He knew that the Human Race’s Battleship was too conspicuous here, so just like Dawn, when they entered, he took in the Battleship and the members below the Seventh Order into his Small Universe, with only a few Seventh Order quietly arriving.
Bai Yi, who was guarding the entrance, had long since noticed them and guided them into the Ink Nest.
Seeing Yang Kai, Chai Fang couldn’t help feeling admiration and quickly cupped his fists, “Brother Yang, this Chai admits defeat!”
Their team had also been wandering around the periphery for many days, wondering if they could take down an Ink Nest and sneak into the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line before acting.
However, this matter was too difficult. Although Old Turtle’s team was quite strong, it was still difficult for them to silently take down the Ink Nest.
However, Dawn Squad had already completed this task, so Yang Kai’s achievements were without a doubt a great merit. With his invincible strength in the same realm, he had enough room to crush the Black Ink Clan’s Feudal Lord.
“Brother Chai is too kind,” Yang Kai said, “Please wait a moment, the Profound Wind Squad will be arriving soon.”
Chai Fang nodded slightly and led the group up into the Dawn's side. After thinking about it for a moment, he released his team members.
Unlike Yang Kai, whose Small Universe had a strong foundation. After recruiting his own team members into his Small Universe, the Small Universe felt slightly bloated. If he were to encounter an enemy in battle, he would definitely be hindered and his strength would fall drastically.
Not long after, the Profound Wind Squad also arrived. Everyone gathered together except for the Snow Wolf Squad, Chai Fang, and Ma Gao. After asking around, they learned that Yao Kang Cheng had led his team into the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line.
Inwardly, they were somewhat worried. Although there was no Ink Nest inside the defensive line and it might be safer, there was always a chance. If they really encountered the Black Ink Clan, their situation would become dangerous.
However, now that they couldn’t contact them, they had no choice.
Without thinking too much about it, Chai Fang said, “Brother Yang, what advice do you have summoning us here?”
Yang Kai smiled and said, “I don’t dare to advise you, but I need your help.”
Ma Gao nodded and said, “If there’s anything you need, Brother Yang, feel free to speak. Now that we’re out scouting for information, we should naturally help each other.”
“Then I’ll cut to the chase. It’s like this, I’ve observed from the outside that although the Black Ink Clan is currently using all their strength to construct a defensive line formed from the Ink Force, because it has expanded too much, the defensive line is not very tight. As long as we can take down three adjacent Ink Nests and conceal ourselves from the eyes and ears of the Black Ink Clan, Great Evolution Pass will have a chance to quietly enter the Black Ink Clan’s defensive line and rush towards the King City.”
As he spoke, Yang Kai stamped his foot, “This is the first one, and the other two need to be taken down, but my Dawn Squad needs to stay here in case anything goes wrong. If we want to take down the other two, we need your help.”
Ma Gao and Chai Fang glanced at each other before nodding, the former saying, “Since Brother Yang has summoned us here, surely he must have some clues, right? How do you want us to cooperate?”
Yang Kai said, “I do have some ideas. Originally, I was planning to use the same old trick, but now I have a better idea. Previously, a Black Ink Clan Feudal Lord came here…”
Immediately, he explained what had happened to the Black Ink Clan’s Feudal Lord.
Ma Gao raised his brow, “Collecting supplies…”
Although Chai Fang was boorish, his mind was sharp and he suddenly understood, “Brother Yang wants to disguise himself as a person collecting supplies and approach those two Ink Nests?”
Yang Kai nodded, “Rather than sneaking around and making people wary, it would be better to act openly.”
“That’s true, I’m sure the Black Ink Clan wouldn’t have thought that the one who approached them so blatantly would actually have ill intentions towards them,” Ma Gao agreed, “However, Brother Yang, this matter is a bit difficult to handle. According to what you said, the one who collected the supplies was the Black Ink Clan’s Feudal Lord. If you were to disguise yourself, you would at most be a Black Ink Disciple, making others wary.”
Yang Kai had disguised himself as a Black Ink Disciple more than once, no one else was able to disguise themselves. Because they didn’t have Ink Force, Yang Kai was different. His Small Universe even had Ink Nest, so it wasn’t difficult for him to obtain some Ink Force.
Yang Kai smiled and said, “There are twenty or thirty people who collected the supplies, and they are not necessarily all Feudal Lords. If the Black Ink Clan really asks, I have an excuse. As long as I have a chance to approach the Feudal Lord who is overseeing the Ink Nest, everything will be half done!”
For Yang Kai, the only problem was how to approach the Ink Nest. As long as he could get close to the Ink Nest, everything else would be easy. When he had led his team here, he had not paid any attention to the surrounding Black Ink Clan and had instead rushed into the Ink Nest.
He was afraid that the Feudal Lord would spread the news.
Fortunately, the other party had relaxed somewhat, probably not having expected the Human Race to be so bold as to directly charge in.
However, for the next two Ink Nests, he couldn’t place his hopes on the carelessness of others, so it was better to try to control the situation.
However, in every Ink Nest, the Black Ink Clan’s strength was not weak, so it was impossible for them to only have one Feudal Lord. Yang Kai needed to focus on dealing with the master of the Ink Nest, while the other Black Ink Clans needed help to deal with.
Since Dawn Squad have to stay here, he could only ask Old Turtle and Profound Wind to come.
“Since Brother Yang has made up his mind, we will cooperate. As for how we should act, I hope Brother Yang can plan well,” Ma Gao said solemnly.
“Of course,” Yang Kai had already made up his mind, so he quickly explained the situation to them.
Ma Gao and Chai Fang nodded repeatedly when they heard this. If that was the case, it wouldn’t be difficult to take down the two adjacent Ink Nests. If they had enough manpower, they could take as many as they wanted.
However, if he took too much, there would be too many flaws, so that was not necessarily a good thing.
After a brief discussion, Yang Kai got up and said, “There’s no time to lose, I’ll leave now, everyone wait here for my news.”
Ma Gao and Chai Fang nodded, “Brother Yang, be careful.”
Yang Kai waved his hand and flew out of the Ink Nest, heading straight towards the adjacent area.
