Doomsday Lord Ch. 61 | Recruiting

Hearing this, Cheng Yang couldn’t help but praise his foresight. Building the Imperial Guard Pavilion now was undoubtedly an amazing choice.

Right now, he would be able to monopolize all of the talented guards but he couldn’t guarantee that someone would build another Imperial Guard Pavilion soon. Normally it wouldn’t be possible to obtain a territory and get the blueprints needed within the first two months of the apocalypse but what if he wasn’t the only person who reincarnated?

He was had been reincarnated, so why couldn’t it happen to someone else? He couldn’t allow someone else to steal this opportunity!

Unfortunately, hiring a top-level guard was just too expensive. Even if he used all of the Experience Fragments, he had earned today and dipped into the village’s saving he could only afford to hire three SS-Rank Elite guards and a normal S-Rank guard or two.

Without hesitation, Cheng Yang hired the only SS-Rank Warrior available, instantly draining one thousand five hundred Experience Fragments from his account.

With a flash of light, a young woman wearing simple linen clothes appeared in front of Cheng Yang.

The Warrior immediately dropped down to one knee and bowed. “Xue Yu greets the Lord.”

Cheng Yang had expected this kind of behavior. After all, every NPC treated the Lord with great respect so wouldn’t his personal guard be even more courteous?

“Please rise Xue Yu. I have high hopes for you and leave the safety of Phoenix Village in your hands.” Cheng Yang said, helping the Warrior to her feet.

“It is a privilege to serve you my Lord.”

Using his authority as the Lord of Phoenix Village, Cheng Yang checked her system pane.

As expected, her Innate Ability was even more powerful than his was. Additionally, it was perfect for a Warrior. If not for his skills and equipment, Cheng Yang probably wouldn’t be able to beat her in single combat.

When he saw her special Innate Ability, Cheng Yang had a wonderful idea. Since they could detect where monsters were, they would be far more efficient at killing the monsters attacking the village walls. If he let the Imperial Guard handle it, his normal soldiers would have more time to hunt outside the village.

Even better, couldn’t he send them to clear the Blood Soaked Cathedral? The monsters killed inside the instance dungeon were counted as being inside the territory boundaries so why wouldn’t the Imperial Guard be able to run it?

It was certainly worth a try. If it was possible for the Imperial Guard to use the instance dungeon then it would be far better than having his soldiers use it. After all, the Imperial Guard would be capable of clearing the Hard Difficulty. That meant the daily earning from the dungeon would increase greatly!

It was a pity that he couldn’t send Xu Wu to do that right now. Since she was a Warrior, there was no way for her to use the environment exploit to kill the boss.

However, even if she could, Cheng Yang wouldn’t send her in alone. Although the Imperial Guard were more easily replaced than high-level soldiers, there was no guarantee that he could hire another guard of the same quality.

That said, Cheng Yang planned to make his other two Elites a Ranger and a Summoner. He felt that an Elite Priest wouldn’t be that much better than a normal one and would feel uncomfortable if there was a Mage in the territory that was stronger than him.

Before hiring his other two Elite Imperial Guards, Cheng Yang greeted the other NPCs. He knew the importance of leaving them with a good impression and didn’t want to leave without saying anything.

In addition to the Dragon of War, the Imperial Guard Pavilion housed the Vermillion Archmage of Terror, the Divine Sky Caller, the Ten Thousand Beast Enigma and the Eagle Eyes Calamity

Even though he tried his best to be polite, he almost screamed when he heard those names. Every one of them had a cringy fantasy title!

Even though he nearly vomited, he was able to collect some valuable information. There was at least one SS-Rank individual in each class and between five and ten S-Rank individuals.

After talking to the NPC’s, Cheng Yang hired the SS-Rank Summoner and Ranger.

When he did, he checked their system panes.

With the addition of these three High Grade Apprentices, Phoenix Village’s power reached a completely new level. Cheng Yang felt that even if the military tried to take over Phoenix Village they would be sent back to Cloud City crying.

However, he had just spent four thousand five hundred Experience Fragments. Although he could afford another S-Rank guard Cheng Yang decided to wait a day or two.

Satisfied with his purchase, Cheng Yang left the Imperial Guard Pavilion. When the civilians outside the gate saw Cheng Yang exit, they took a step backwards in fear. Hadn’t Cheng Yang entered alone? Who were those other three people?

Despite their curiosity, no one approached Cheng Yang to ask him about it.

Cheng Yang chuckled when he saw the reaction of the civilians

“Everyone listen up. From now on, these three people are the leaders of my Imperial Guard. They’ll patrol the walls and ensure the safety of the village’s citizens. As long as there are here none of you will be in danger!” Cheng Yang declared.

The civilians burst into applause. To them it didn’t matter where those people came from as long as they were willing to protect the village.
