Chapter 238: Rothschild on a Rampage

“Keuk, keuk keuk keuk . . . ” 

Kang Chul-In laughed .  

“Y-your Majesty . . . ” 

“ . . . ”

“Your… Majesty?” 

His subordinates were flabbergasted .  

Looking at Kang Chul-In now, he was covered with bruises, as if all his muscles had torn .  

His lips were blue, and his face was pale . In other words, he was completely fatigued .  


Nevertheless, Kang Chul-In was visibly overjoyed with a cunning smile on his face .  

“Y-your Majesty . . . ” 

Lucia approached him cautiously .  

“You must be really tired, so why are you laughing so much?” 

“It’s entertaining . ” 

“D-Did you say … entertaining?” 

“Isn’t it? Cough!” 

Kang Chul-In vomited blood .  

That wasn’t all .

His nose was bleeding, and his eyes were blood red .

Despite all of this, Kang Chul-In still laughed .  


“Y-your Majesty!” 

“Bullying that Rothschild bastard… is always entertaining . ” 

“ . . . !” 

“I wonder if there’s anything more entertaining than that . Kekeke . ” 

“…If you say so, your Majesty . ” 

Lucia closed her eyes and replied .  

“What good weather . ” 

Kang Chul-In laid down on Zeppelin’s deck and mumbled .  

It was autumn .  

The autumn sky was clear and vast without a single cloud .  

“Good weather to screw with Rothschild . ” 

“Y-your Majesty . . . ” 

“I’m satisfied . ” 

“ . . . ” 

“And… I shall take a nap . ”

Having said that, Kang Chul-In closed his eyes .  

He could no longer endure his accumulated fatigue .  

“I . . . ” 

Lucia gazed at Kang Chul-In affectionately and mumbled .  

“… can hardly hold your Majesty back . How are you this mischievous?” 

She was right .  

“And also… that moustache… it doesn’t suit you at all . ” 

Kang Chul-In had forgotten to take off his disguise before falling asleep .  


“Urgh… Urghhh . . . ” 

Rothschild fell sick after Kang Chul-In’s escape .  

“Kang Chul-In… Kang Chul-In!” 

Even on his sickbed, he shouted his nemesis’ name and shuddered in anger .  

Of course, his blood pressure shot up whenever he did that .  


He trembled with rage .  

“Your Majesty… more bad news, I’m afraid . ” 

Sadly, this wasn’t the end of Rothschild’s misfortune .

“Our people are showing signs of rebellion . Many soldiers are running away as well . ” 

The new chief of staff, general Akül, rubbed salt into Rothschild’s wound .  

He was just doing his job .


 Rothschild replied in a chilling voice .  

“Your Majesty?” 

“What am I supposed to do?” 

“W-Well . . . ”

“Just kill them all . ” 

“I beg your pardon?!” 

Akül couldn’t believe what he was hearing .  

“Y-your Majesty!” 

“Why? Can’t do it?” 

“It’s not that . . . ” 

“Can’t you just summon new citizens and soldiers?” 

“ . . . !” 

“Akül . ”

“Yes, your Majesty . . . ” 

“Don’t let those lowly existences act however they want . ” 

“ . . . ” 

“They are destined to obey . I have never granted them any permission to complain and rebel . Just kill all of them . ” 

It was a stone-hearted comment .  

He seemed to have no hesitation committing a genocide .  

It indicated that Rothschild viewed the native Pangaeans as nothing other than meat shields . They were consumables to him .

“However, your Majesty, with that sort of violent method . . . ” 

“Are you telling me to leave those traitors alone, Akül?” 

“ . . . ”

“Think of it as starting afresh . And . . . ”

Rothschild looked at Akül and spoke .  

“I will reward you 100,000 gold and appoint you as our territory’s key officer if you handle this well . ” 

“ . . . !” 

“Show me what you are capable of . ”

“Yes… your Majesty . . . ” 

Akül succumbed to the enormous amount of gold proposed .  

 Kang Chul-In, in order to get my revenge on you… I think I can even sell my soul to the devil . . .

Rothschild had almost given up by now .  

There was no light at the end of this tunnel .  

He struggled hard to survive and was slowly recuperating, while Kang Chul-In ruined everything and ran off . He was extremely fatigued .  

But what could he do?

All he could do now was invest gold to rebuild the territory .  

For Rothschild to survive, he absolutely had to be as resilient as a cockroach .  


While Kang Chul-In had left his place, Laputa’s key officials were preparing busily for his crowning .

Drakan and James were in charge of expanding Laputa’s territory .  

Drakan led his army and roamed around the Ishtar region, conquering many small and big free cities . Meanwhile, James planted multiple rocks engraved with Kang Chul-In’s seal on unclaimed land, declaring that those areas belonged to Kang Chul-In .  

Other officers were busy as well .  

Timothy, Kimura and Podolski were responsible for administration and finance, construction of new cities and agricultural land, and training new intelligence agents respectively .  

Kwak Jung had also returned from Dorado .  

“You’ve come . ” 

Kang Chul-In greeted Kwak Jung as he laid on his sick bed .  

“Yes, your Majesty . ” 

“Where were you fooling around during a critical period like this?” 

Kang Chul-In reprimanded Kwak Jung .  

It was because the tactician’s absence had increased workload for everyone .  

As proof, Kang Chul-In had a mountain of paperwork piled next to his bed, which he feared the most .  

In other words, Kang Chul-In had been scanning through countless documents even as he nursed himself!

“Haha… A-As for that . . . ” 

Kwak Jung sheepishly laughed and handed a document over to Kang Chul-In .  

“I managed to do it . ” 

“Do what?” 

“Take a look first . ” 

Kang Chul-In was puzzled, but he read the document nonetheless .  

He then clenched his fist afterwards .  

“What… is this?” 

“Hehe… I’m trying to turn your Majesty into a playboy . . . ” 

“…You want a punch?” 

“N-No, sorry!” 

Kwak Jung realized his bad choice in words and began to blabber on to hide that fact .  

“This is all an effort to strengthen Laputa and your Majesty . Furthermore, it shall be the foundation for your Pangaea conquest . ” 

“So… are you really planning to make it happen?” 

“Yes . ” 

“ . . . ” 

“What’s wrong?” 

“You are driving me nuts . ” 

Kang Chul-In replied in absurdity . Kwak Jung’s report was as follows: 

[Marriage plan proposal] 

Wife 1: Ninetails, the queen of Fox Valley

Wife 2: Overlord Lee Chae-Rin

Wife 3: Former Overlord Skadi Andvari

“Why, King Wang Geon of the Koryŏ dynasty had six queens and twenty-three wives . ” 

“ . . . ” 

“Since you already plan to expand your influence, I suggest you just go ahead with all of your arranged marriages without hesitation!”

Kwak Jung was right .  

Laputa was currently bulking up to fight against the Gullveig coalition .  

Arranged marriages would prove to be valuable assets in this process . It was an Overlord’s duty .  

“So you are telling me… to marry three people at once?” 

“Yes . ” 

“…My mother will be so pleased . ” 

Kang Chul-In tossed out a sarcastic remark .  

“I-I suppose . . . ” 

Kwak Jung replied sheepishly .  

“I won’t reject your proposal . However . . . ” 


“This part needs a correction . ” 

Kang Chul-In grabbed a pen and corrected a part of the proposal .  

[Marriage plan proposal] 

Wife 1: (Empty) 

Wife 2: Ninetails, the queen of Fox Valley

Wife 3: Overlord Lee Chae-Rin .  

Concubine 1: Former Overlord Skadi Andvari

“Hmm? What’s going on?” 

Kwak Jung was puzzled .  

“Just like what I wrote here . ” 

“ . . . ?” 

“As for my first wife’s place… I have to leave it empty . Damn it . ” 

“I don’t really follow . . . ” 

“This thing is not letting anyone become my first wife . ” 

Kang Chul-In wriggled his fourth finger with the Needle of the Empress on it .  

“Is it still causing you problems?” 

“If I put anyone in the first wife’s seat, I’m doomed . ” 

“That bad?” 

“I’m thinking of hitting level 100 and then completing a quest to satisfy this damn thing . ” 

Kang Chul-In was speaking the truth .  

…… .

*Due to the user’s cheating, Laputa is selected for penalty option 1,2 and 3 .

…… .

In other words, he had to reach level 100 first and clear the hidden quest to have his first wife .  

“For now… let’s just proceed with your plan . ” 

“…This is tough on you, your Majesty . ” 

“Clear these if you really do think so . ” 

Kang Chul-In pointed at the pile of paperwork next to his bed .  

“Y-your Majesty?” 

“You do it . It’s an order . ” 

“ . . . ” 

“Well then, you may leave . I’m going to rest . ” 

Kang Chul-In gave Kwak Jung his work and immediately closed his eyes . It was a sort of threat to not bother him anymore .  

D-Damn it…it’s all about the ranks… Keuk . . .

Kwak Jung had to swallow his misery and leave the sickbay with a bunch of paperwork by his side .  


At the same time…

Flap, flap!

A carrier pigeon flew across the land of Cyamodus, where mass genocide was happening .  

It was heading towards a secret communication facility, with a confidential message wrapped around its leg .  

The message was as follows: 

Lord Alex Rothschild is slaughtering his own people and soldiers .  

Seems to be a move to quell rebellion and the Coup d'etat .  

New citizens and soldiers, replenished at an extremely fast rate .  

Written by Schröder, the leader of the Fox Valley Intelligence Agency .

Indeed, Kang Chul-In had planted numerous Fox Valley Intelligence agents in Cyamodus to monitor Rothschild’s every move!


As Kang Chul-In was about to marry three women at once, Desdemona, the ancient black dragon, was travelling to Ishtar’s west, disguised as a traveller .  

“Ha… nothing has changed during the past thousand years . ” 

Desdemona mumbled in her human girl form .  

“And they say even mountains change in 1000 years . ” 

To her, even a decade passed in a blink of an eye .  

“Oh, right . ” 


“Hey, did you hear the rumour?” 

“What rumour?”

“You know . . . ” 

Desdemona heard an interesting conversation from afar .  

Let’s eavesdrop a bit .  

She then amplified her hearing abilities .  

It wasn’t difficult for a dragon like her .  

“You know that Kentachi guy?” 

“Ah~! That canine who sells things? The one who roams around with his backpack?” 

“Yes, that Kentachi . I heard from that guy that . . . ” 


“An ancient golden dragon had polymorphed into a human and is now walking around the Ishtar region . ”

Desdemona froze .
