Axe was feeling great recently . His status in the family was now a step higher than before . Axe loved to adventure, which explained why he didn’t have the highest position in the family . And with the addition of having minimal contact with the family, Axe’s status of being the direct successor wasn’t very stable .
But this time, the information that Axe brought was too important of the O’neal family . After Axe came back, the family immediately prepared for their invasion of the Ark Continent .
With this, Axe’s status had become more and more stable . When the time comes, nobody could say anything if he were to succeed the family .
Because of this, Axe took care of the Ark Continent’s invasion very meticulously . In his mind, conquering the Ark Continent was a very good opportunity for him . As long as his family takes control of the Ark Continent, the position of Patriarch would certainly be his .
Axe was too enthusiastic with the preparations, there were matters he wasn’t involved with but he still chose to express his thoughts .
However, the O’Neal Clan’s Patriarch was Axe’s father . He became quite fond of his son, so when he saw Axe intervening on things he not only let it go, he even supported his son .
In the past, Axe didn’t pay much attention to the matters of the family, this worried his father . One could transfer one’s power to another person, but things were more complicated than that . If you can’t consolidate your power, then you would end up like a puppet in the end .
Axe was heading this direction, which worried his father . Therefore, after seeing Axe’s enthusiastic performance, the Patriarch encouraged him to intervene more .
In the Atlanta Plane, especially in the Magic Armor Continent, military operations were done large-scale, causing many things to be prepared .
Like the Divine Race, if they wanted to make an attack, they needed to carry out some preparations . They would need to assemble an army, amass supplies, provide weapons, and a lot more . These needed to be properly taken care of before making a move . If the military wasn’t prepared, then they would risk failure .
The thing the Atlanta Plane needed to take of the most were their magic armors . Both the offensive and defensive capabilities of the magic armors are formidable . However, magic armors had a weak point, it was power .
Magic armors weren’t like people, especially God-ranks . As long as people had enough food and rest, then they would be able to fight properly .
On the other hand, magic armors needed energy coming from a compressed energy source . The energy inside these sources came from extracting energy somewhere and compressing it .
This energy is the heart of each magic armor . Therefore, the Atlanta Continent prepared a lot of these things . Otherwise, there would come a time where the magic armors would turn into useless pieces of junk .
It was precisely because of this that the preparation time for the Atlanta Continent was much longer compared to the Divine Race . The Divines would be able to finish their preparations in just one month while the Atlanta Plane would take at least two to three months .
Besides compressed energy, the Atlanta Plane also needed means of transportation before they can proceed to attack .
The magic armors of the Atlanta Plane were just like aircraft, but much more formidable . However, each magic armor can only carry so much energy source inside them . Once their source of power gets used up, then they could no longer fight .
But since the magic armors needed to be used for combat, they couldn’t just be allowed to fly by themselves . Because of this, if one wants to transport the magic armors, you would need a bigger vessel .
There were many means of transport in the Atlanta Plane . Some of these transport vehicles work in the sea while some work on land . But regardless of where they operate, one thing was for sure, these transport vehicles were very large .
Since these transportation vehicles were big and there weren’t any who can carry a lot of magic armors in one go, they needed to be taken care of as well before the Atlanta Plane can invade the Ark Continent .
In the Atlanta Continent where the spatial rift to the Ark Continent was located, was an island . It was quite a large island with no people in it . This wasn’t an issue since it could be regarded as a military base to be used as a jumping point for their invasion of the Ark Continent .
However, the island also presented a problem by itself . If they wanted to leave the island and proceed to the Ark Continent, then they would need a lot of transportation vehicles . There were a lot of transportation vehicles available in the Atlanta Plane, but how to bring them to the Ark Continent was a nuisance that needed to be taken care of .
Whether it be in the Ark Continent or the Atlanta plane, or even on Earth, constructing marine-worthy vehicles was much harder compared to land vehicles .
And this case was especially true for much larger vessels . Therefore, after hearing about the Ark Continent, the O’Neal family immediately constructed a shipyard on that island . Then they concentrated all of their shipbuilders there in order to make the ships .
The O’Neal family had no other way . The spatial crack was in a small mountain, there was simply no way for the family to send a large amount of ships directly to the Ark Continent .
However, for the Atlanta Plane who were constructing magic armors, making said ships only took a short time . In this case, a megaton-class ship can be made in just a month .
And because the O’Neal family was looking at this invasion with importance and had invested almost all manpower and funds into this project, they were able to make four megaton-class ships in two months .
These four huge ships aren’t just for transporting magic armors, they were also used to carry land transportation vehicles . These land-based vehicles were also a masterpiece of the Atlanta Plane . Each one can carry 20 magic armors . Moreover, it can go through all kinds of terrain . It also had a thick armor as well as weapons making it capable for combat .
The O’Neal family knew that to conquer the Ark Continent, they would need to rely on these land vehicles . Therefore, along with the ships, they also made a few of these vehicles .
The O’Neal family went all out on this gamble . As long as they conquer the Ark Continent, every investment would be worth it .
Axe was currently on the island with the spatial rift . This island was known to the family as Axe Island . After he came back home, it was named after him to commemorate his achievement . Axe took a liking to this island . He stayed on it as he supervised the shipbuilding efforts .
Today, it wasn’t only Axe who was present . His father, the O’Neal family Patriarch was also here along with other important figures of the family .
The reason they came to Axe Island was because the fourth ship was finally able to be launched .
In the O’Neal family, these four ships had been named, ‘Conquest’, ‘Victory’, ‘Glory’, and ‘Tyrant’ . One can see from the names of these ships the ambition and expectations of the O’Neal family in conquering the Ark Continent .
The workers below were still busy . Axe was standing on the dock, a step behind his father . Axe’s father looked at the four big ships and couldn’t help but smile . He turned to Axe and said, “Axe, you did this quite magnificently . As long as the family occupies the Ark Continent, you will receive the highest honors . ” Although Axe was feeling proud in his heart, his outside expression maintained its calm . He bowed to his father and replied, “It is my pleasure to benefit the family . Father, I want you to wait for a while . I’ll head to the Ark Continent and contact Zhao Hai . What do you think?”
Axe’s father smiled, but he shook his head and said, “Axe, there’s no need to be anxious . Wait until everyone is ready . When the time comes, it won’t be too late . Zhao Hai is very young and might be inexperienced, however, this doesn’t mean the same for the other people in the Ark Continent . If we aren’t prepared and you just brashly go there, you might alert them . This matter is crucial for the family, so we don’t want even a small mistake . Axe, don’t forget, you’re a young Patriarch, what you need to do is to overlook the entire situation and not to charge headfirst . That kind of thing is not befitting someone of your status, let others do it instead . Understood?”
Upon hearing his father, Axe didn’t talk back . Instead, he nodded and said, “Yes, father, I understand . ”
Axe’s Father nodded, then he patted Axe’s shoulder and said, “Kid, I’ll be handing the future of the O’Neal family in your hands . You need to understand that there are things that even the Patriarch cannot help with . You can’t do everything by yourself, otherwise, what point is there for your position?” Axe remembered his father’s words . Although he didn’t have a thorough understanding about it, he also knew that this wasn’t the time to ask his father . He just nodded and stayed silent .
At this time, someone arrived by Axe’s father and kneeled down on one knee, “Reporting to the Patriarch . Everything has been prepared . We ask the Patriarch to give the honors!”
Axe’s father nodded . Then he went to the pier right by the Tyrant . On the bow of the ship was a bottle of wine tied by the rope . Axe’s father took the bottle and then swung it with all his strength towards the ship .
