    Chapter 5

    He knew he would change the way the knights trained, but he had to start gradually.

    In this era, they didnt have any form rigorous training like the one’s established on earth.

    In fact, when he turned 18 he had served his country for two years before settling before he worked as a mechanical engineer. He knew more than anyone else, the importance of all those military routines.

    Since the system would eventually reward him with all knowledge on canons and gunpowder making, its safe to assume that he would be making his very own machine guns soon. Hence, he needed to train the men’s reflexes and physical conditions so they could efficiently work guns or any other military equipment’s.

    Although he didnt have any guns presently, it didn’t mean he would neglect the benefits from that kind of training. Those routines helped soldiers build confidence in themselves, their subordinates and their Companions.

    It also helped the soldiers improve their leadership skills, develop a sense of belonging, pride, compassion towards others and of course extremely strong body.

    What he needed, were soldiers who were loyal to him, the people and the kingdom. And not men who did things for merit or money.
    He scanned the soldiers seriously, ensuring that he met almost everyone with his eyes. He gave off the aura of a well accomplished soldier.

    “Tomorrow morning before the dawn of day, all knights will assemble at the inner castle for training. This training sessions will involve new routines, as well as your normal sword practices…All those who arrive late will have no breakfast and lunch for the rest of the day. More than 3 Absences without a good reason will result in no food for a day and intense punishment…now…DO YOU UNDERSTAND!!!!!!”

    All the knights immediately yelled back,

    “Yes My King”

    “Excellent…..now divide yourselves into three groups. In can be in any order, but each group must contain at a hundred men.” Once he finished speaking, he walked towards his mother and Lucy.

    “Mom, we will need enough food to feed all the knights, our workers and ourselves…. How much much do we have?” he asked. His mom thought for a while an answered,

    “We brought 3 Wagons filled with wheat, 1 wagon filled with beans, 1 wagon filled with peas, 1 wagon filled barely, rye and oats. And finally a wagon filled with various seeds needed for farming.”

    “That’s good….Mom, Lucy…..tommorrow morning, could you all make sure that the kitchen makes enough food for all the knights? I need all the food delivered to the inner courtyard at day break every morning. ” He asked softly.

    Afterall she was his mother not some soldier in the army, and Lucy was someone he cared about deeply.

    Lucy looked at Landon’s handsome face and blushed. ‘Since when did Brother Landon look so cool and handsome?…’. Lucy continued to blush as she observed Landon.

    On the other hand, Kim looked at her son’s handsome face. She smiled and thought, ‘When did my little baby grow up? he’s so cute, acting all tough and manly. Pinching his checks gently she said,

    “My little boy has grown up. Of course I’ll do it. This our home now. what ever you need me to do just say it.”

    “Brother Landon, do you even need to ask? I’ll do anything you need me to do”. Lucy said.
    Immediately as she realised what she just said, her blush intensified. Kim noticed and couldn’t help giggling. Landon was confused so to why his mum kept giggling.

    “Thanks mom, thanks Lucy”
    Looking at them, he felt that he was truly blessed. Even though he felt like that, he couldn’t help but sigh inwardly.

    ‘woman, why can’t you take me seriously? Although I may look 15, I’m a full grown man for pitsake. Can’t you see that this is a serious military moment? you just said I’ve grown up. Yet, here you are, pinching my cheeks in public?. .. ..huuhhhhh, I give up. luckily no one saw you do it or else this serious atmosphere would be a joke.’

    Once he finished speaking to his mom, he looked around and saw all his soldiers split into three main groups, excluding Commander Lucius. He walked towards them with a serious look on his face.

    “Since we have three Knight Captain’s in our kingdom, all knights will be grouped under these Captain’s. All the Knight Captain’s will in turn answer to Commander Lucius. Captain Josh!”

    Josh stepped out of the crowd and gave a salute.

    “My King”, he said still on bended knees.

    “You will lead, train and take care of all men in the first group”
    “As you wish my King”
    Josh moved towards Lucius, gave him a salute saying,

    “Commander” and walked towards the first group.
    When he arrived in front of them, they all shouted

    “Captain!!”

    Josh then stood in front of them and faced Landon. Landon then continued on with allocating the other teams to Mark and Gary, repeating the same scenarios.
    Once everyone looked satisfied with their various groups, they all faced Landon and yelled, “My Lord”.

    They felt like they truly belonged here as compared to when they were in the Capital. No one had ever paid so much attention to them as Landon was doing.

    “You all will take each other as family, as each others brother. Your will eat together, work together, grow strong together and build this kingdom together. No Knight will ever be left behind.”

    They were stunned and equallysuprised. no one would be left behind?…this was the first time that they heard such a phrase. In this world the strong rules and the weak perished. That’sjust the way things were. But since most of them were considered as weak in empire, so they were heavily affected and touched by Landon’s words.

    “For Now we will do an inspection on the land. Commander Lucius, what do you think?” Landon asked while looking at Lucius.

    “My King, it’s an excellent idea. I propose that we all go for the inspection, so to know how to protect Baymard.” Lucius answered immediately.

    “I agree. Afterall, we need to have a clear understanding of the situation here. Based on the information we gather, we will be able to appropriately allocate duties and responsibilities to everyone…..For now, let’s go look at Baymard”. Everyone needed.
    As he was about to move out with his men, Lucius stopped him with a smile on his face.

    “Little Landon, does your cheeks still hurt?”

    Chapter 6

    As they left the castle, Landon quickly checked on the system.

    ‘System, how do I use you to map out the territory?’

    ‘Answering host. Host just needs to look at the map of the empire, stored in the system and highlight the territories that belong to host.’
    ‘Just like that?’, Landon asked almost not believing the system.
    ‘Yes!’

    ‘so what happens when I want to expand my territories?’

    ‘If that were to happen host just needs to highlight more regions on the sytem map.’

    Landon nodded as he listened to the system.

    ‘This is also very useful, as the system will inform host if any there any enemy attacks or unwanted guests in the Host’s territories.’

    ‘That’s good then’

    Landon looked at the map and decided to draw a circle around Baymard. He made sure to add at least 20 meter difference between the city walls and the surroundings.

    Once he was done, a pop-up screen appeared.

    ‘Would you like to view your selected Territory on the Monitor?’

    He was excited. With a monitor could check every area in Baymard without being there in person. This is extremely useful for times when he might have to leave the territory for urgent matters. He clicked on yes, and viewed the city.

    Looking at the monitor, it resembled a regular flat screen T.V.

    He could sea people fishing on the sea coast, people farming inside the city, people going out to hunt, the city walls, the castle, and so on.

    He was satisfied with this ‘mapping’ function in the system.
    Baymard was divided into 3 regions; the Upper regions, the Central regions and the Lower regions.

    As he passed through the upper region of the city, he saw various estates. There were 16 estates, that each had at least 6 stones mansions and 10 small buildings on them.

    These mansions were extremely huge, having their own courtyards and servant quarters.

    Each estate was surrounded by a 4 foot fence. A person standing next to the fence, could see the entire estate without stressing themselves.

    If it were back on earth, each of these mansions could be used to open a major University. They were big, but not as big as his castle.

    ‘At least there are no nobles in the city to bother me’

    The City lord used to stay in Landon’s castle, while these other estate belonged to the Barons and dukes.

    Once they heard that Baymard will no longer be under the protection of Arcadina, they all fled to the Capital.

    They didnt want to serve Landon, so they left. What a joke, serving a 15 year old prince who has no power. In their eyes he was trash, a prince with only 330 soldiers? They were all way stronger than him physically and had a larger number of knights under their wings. In his world strength is everything.

    They knew that Landon had been exiled along with his family to Baymard. Staying, would only bring the Wrath of the King onto them.

    Choosing to serve Landon would be stabbing the king in his back.
    Besides, they didnt want to lend any of their knights to aid in protecting Baymard. If a war broke-out between Baymard and any neighboring cities, there would be no reinforcements coming in to help them.

    Coupled with the lack of food in the territory, it was not a risk they were willing to take.

    They knew that the King was Indirectly saying ‘I want Prince Landon out of Arcadina, and if anyone helps him, they would face the consequences.’

    Once Landon and his men left the upper region, they arrived at the central part of Baymard. This region was where the villagers lived.

    As the group moved through the city, they greeted the villagers and aided any who needed any form of assistance. Landon kept observing his surroundings.
    Compared to the houses in the Capital, these ones could easily be destroyed in harsh weather conditions.

    From his memories, the houses in the Capital were all made from stone and wood, making them sturdy and long lasting.

    But the houses in Baymard were made of sticks, straw and mud. They all had frameworks made of Timber. Their walls are made of a dried mixture of woven twigs and mud. And their roofs made of straw. This houses were typically called Mud-Brick houses.

    ‘No wonder it was reported that Baymard had the highest death rate in Arcadina.’ He thought.
    Looking at the roads here, they were not as good as the ones In the upper region. There were patches of mud on the ground and a lot of pot-holes on the roads.

    On their way to the lower regions, they saw a group of men carrying bows and arrows hoping to get some meat for their families, women carrying water and children running around and playing.

    Once they reached the lower levels, it was all vegation and farmlands.

    Landon could see over a three hundred fields, but only about 5 people on them. It was clear to see that even the people believed that their lands were barren.
    Looking west from the fields, Landon was surprised to see two giant estates.

    He then turned to the east from the fields and only one gigantic estate there. Landon’s interest was piqued. He turned to the Lucius and the group.

    “Why would nobles leave the upper region to build their estates here?, dont you find it very strange?”

    “indeed my King”, Lucius said and everyone else nodded.

    “My King, maybe they found something valuable in this lower region and decided to stay here.” said a shy knight.

    The knight had blond hair and dark brown eyes. If he were on earth he would look like a K-pop artist. He had no muscles and looked incredibly weak, like a twig. Landon was not worried because once he started training them, they gain a lot of muscles.

    The knight’s voice showed a hint of shyness and fear. It was clear that he lacked any confidence in himself.

    “What’s your name, age, rank and Captain?”, Landon asked.

    “Billy Vein, age 17, Squire under Captain Mark. My King”

    “Billy, that was an excellent suggestion. They might be things there that could help us better the kingdom. EXCELLENT.” Landon said while smiling.

    Inwardly Landon was shocked that Billy was 17 years old. He really looked like a 14 year old boy.

    Billy was extremely excited to be complimented by the king. One had to know that when he spoke he was shaking like a leaf. Seeing his highness in high spirits, he felt more confident in himself.

    The other knights also nodded and thought that what Billy said made sense. Afterall, even the villagers didnt stay here. So why would noble’s? It all seemed very sketchy and questionable.

    “Lets go West first. I’m curious to know why they needed two estates there, compared to the east.”

    Chapter 7

    The first estate they stepped into was located on a hill.

    As they stepped in, Landon was stunned by what he saw. It looked a pack of ferocious lions clawed their way out of the estate.

    The courtyard had several pieces of broken equipment on the floor.
    The left boot of a shoe was found floating in a pond at the center of the countyard. A trail of grain could be seen from the courtyard trailing into the estate.

    looking at the floor more closely, he spotted a woman’s undergarment by the trail of grain, a ripped painting in the flower beds and what looked like roasted fish.

    ‘Where they so scared of my father’s wrath that much that they had to throw away their meal?’. He thought

    Landon and is men were all stupidly confused.

    ‘Just what is going on? Nothing here adds up.’ They thought.
    In one of the courtyards, they saw large quantities of ash scattered all over the floor and traces of twigs and swords with blood stains on them could also be seen.
    They searched through every mansion on the estate and couldn’t find any thing valuable. Just as they were about to leave, Landon saw a cave at the back of the estate.

    Once they reached the entrance of the cave, the men put their hands on their sheath in preparation for any sudden danger.

    The entrance of the cave looked like it came straight out of a ‘Lord of the rings’ movie. Landon was just waiting for ‘Samuran the white’ to pop-up from thin air.
    The cave had Molybdenum, Trona and Feldspar stones on the walls and ceilings. The people in this continent only knew the uses of Molybdenite.

    Molybdenite was used to increase the corrosion resistance on swords, armor and any silvery objects.

    This was the era of swords. Thousands of swords were forged daily in this world. Is was for sure a rare treasure.

    On the other hand, people used Trona and Feldspar as decorative stones in the continent. In their eyes, the these two were just regular stones. Completely worthless.

    But to Landon who came from earth, they were priceless. Trona could be used in glass making, paper, detergents, textiles…the list is so long. This was truly a huge win for them.

    The cave was so big that Landon thought they would easily get lost if they kept going forward. So they decided to leave.

    The second estate stood on another hill, 700 meters away from the first.

    Walking in, the estate was far cleaner than the first. It was truly stunning. Landon was in awe.
    They found bags of planting seeds and wheat in the kitchens, a ton of armour, swords and also a courtyard scattered with ash and blood stains. Moving towards the back of the estate, they found another cave entrance.

    Once they stepped into the cave, they saw a lot if Iron ore’s. This was an iron ore mine. To think they had such things here.

    Everyone become excited again and kept wondering why no one in the empire knew of this mine.
    They looked around for a while before deciding to head to the other estate on the other side of the farms.

    The estate was a lot smaller compared to the other two out West.

    Searching the mansions, they still found; a lot of seeds, armor and swords. Like the other two estates, they found a courtyard with a large quantity of ash on the floor and a cave at the back of the estate.

    This cave had a lot of mineral pigments and ion oxides on the walls and ceilings.

    Looking at the walls, Landon could see Red Ochre, Yellow Ochre, Unber. Saltpeter and Limestone’s.

    In this world, people used these ore’s to make various pigments for paint. Only royalty, potential women for selected for harems and wealthy people could have their portraits painted.

    Some peasants could live out their entire lives and never have their portraits taken.

    Everything about painting was
    expensive. If people in the empire knew that Landon had this, they would cough out blood heavily and wage a full-scale war against him.

    As the men all thought of the benefits of having paint, Landon had his own thoughts.

    ‘System, are the other mineral ores important?’

    ‘Answering host. Saltpeter is the main ingredient for making gunpowder. It can also be used in making; fireworks, rockets, food preservatives and can also be used as plant fertilizer. For the other ore’s, they can be used as pigments for cosmetics and future inventions. Limestone can be used as soil conditioner, aggregates in concrete animal fillers, and so on. Host the possibilities are endless.’

    Landon became excited after listening to the system. He looked at the cave and thought,

    ‘Oh My God, there’s actually large quantities of Saltpeter on the walls and ceilings’

    Looking at the white crystalline cones on the ceiling and the walls, he felt like scrooge Mcduck. He even started smiling stupidly.
    In truth, Saltpeter ores looked like frozen snow cones on the ceilings in winter. He was reminded of the Disney movie ‘Frozen’ when he saw this. There was no way he would ‘let it go’.

    This people on the continent didnt know what the uses of these ore’s were. But thanks to the system and his previous life, he now knew the importance of these ore’s.

    Although he was happy now, he knew he had a long way to go… especially when looking at the ores.

    He needed to find ways to extract the elements from the rocks. On earth, these ores would have been processed using very acidic compounds. There were no distillation columns, pipes or tanks here. This was very stressful to him.

    Even thinking about it, he couldn’t help but knit his brows.
    Take cosmetics for example. Although he had the pigments for it, he needed to produce caster oil, glycerin, hydrolyzed corn starch, water, sodium chloride, Oleyl alcohol and so on. He needed at least 12 different ingredients here. He truly felt cheated.

    For every major invention, he just had one ingredient here. ..But he needed to be grateful for what he had at least. He started thinking of how he could use the ore’s.

    ‘Ahhhhhhh that’s right, I saw a lot of slate stones around the territory. Now that I have enough raw materials, I can make a chalkboard…hahahhha’. He thought as they walked in deeper.
    When they exited the cave,

    Landon faced his men and asked.
    “What do you all think about this situation?”

    “The reports dont say anything about these three mines that we found. From the looks at it, the Barons and the city lord might have been the only one’s who knew about it”, Gary answered.

    “That may not be entirely true, since they needed workers for the mines. Do suppose they used the villagers?” Josh asked.

    “No..no…they would be digging their graves if they did that. Remember! they went through a lot means to painstakingly hide the resources from the empire so that they could fill their pockets.” Lucius said.

    “Right. If they told anyone else, they would be dead men walking. As it stands right now, they wont be able to tell the king about the resources in Baymard any longer”, said Mark

    “Why?”, asked a young knight
    “They’ve been here for many years, and in that time frame they never reported any resources they found in Baymard. Lying to the king is the same as taking the king for a fool. The penalty is death.” Mark answered.
    All the other knights

    “Also, if King Barn knew that he had bestowed a land of fortune to our King Landon, he would kill them for sure.” Josh added

    “I’m guessing if he really knew, he wouldn’t have given the land to King Landon.” Said another knight.

    Everyone nodded

    Chapter 8

    “They probably brought in their own workers, in fear that their secret would be found out…If the villagers knew of it, they would probably fight for some resources so they could sell and feed their families. ” Said Trey.

    “That may be the case. Afterall, since we’ve been in the lower region, we haven’t seen any people walking around…..Since the people believe the land is barren, they don’t come here anymore. And even if the did come, the mines are a great walking distance from their farmlands.” Said Lucius.

    “Also dont forget that the Entrance and Exit from Batmard is located in the central region, so no one really needs to be here.” Gary added.

    Everyone agreed as well
    “My guess is that, they burnt all the workers when realised how serious their situation was.” Landon said.

    “That would explain all the blood stains and ash we found in all three estates….. Afterall, there’s no guarantee that the workers would keep their secret forever. The only way to bury the secret was silencing the workers permanently. ” Trey added.
    They had to admit, the city lord and the Barons put a lot of thought into their plans. They didnt think there would be a day when they would have to leave Baymard for good.

    They truly didnt see it coming.
    “Since we are done, let’s move to the sea coast.”Landon said.
    The Central region of Baymard was like the mid point of a compass.

    Moving Eastwards from the central region, one would reach the Upper regions of Baymard. And In the West, you would reach the Lower region.

    Likewise, to the north of the central regions was the entrance/exit to Baymard. And in the South, the sea coastline entrance.
    Once they arrived the coastline, Landon and his men saw a lot of villagers fishing, while some where carrying baskets of fish on their heads.

    They spoke to the villagers, aided them and left to inspect the City walls and the forests by the entrance of Baymard.

    Once were outside Baymard, Landon looked at the walls carefully. He had to admit, the walls were pretty formidable. The walls were in perfect conditions.
    Moving into the surrounding forests, they heard a shrilled shout and the sound of a sword hitting aingst something.

    “Ahhhhhhhhhhhh”
    ‘ting..ting….’

    There was a little boy who looked not older than 8, trying to kill a giant wild boar. The boy had light bright eyes and deep red hair.
    Just as the wild Boar was about to strike him down, the boy shut his eyes tightly, as if accepting death.

    He waited and was surprised…. He didnt feel any pain…

    Opening his eyes, he was stunned to see a group of knights and a dead wild boar on the ground.

    “Thank you sir’s”, the boy said.

    “Whats your name?”, Landon asked smilingly.

    Once the boy saw Landon’s genuine smile, he knew they were friendly.

    My name is Momo Lye…sir, who are you?” Momo asked curiously.
    “Im the new King and Lord of Baymard, Landon”

    The boy was shocked and frightened.

    “My King, sorry for not greeting you earlier”

    “Its alright, besides I’m more worried about you.”

    Mosely was shocked. ‘His highness is worried about me?….’ he thought.

    “Mono, why were you here alone? dont you know how dangerous it is?”, Landon said.

    “I live alone with my elder sister, my king….. Our parents died when I was just 4 summers old. Sister told me they died because of the cold….Sister recently got very sick. I know that for her to get better she needs a lot of meat, so I came to hunt.”

    Landon and the men were sad on hearing this. Although they were some of the men were bullied in the Capital, none of them had ever starved or seen someone die of cold.

    They vowed that they would work hard in order to protect the people.

    Infact Landon took pity on them too. In his previous life he orphan, so seeing Momo struggle, he felt he should assist him

    “From now on, your sister will be my adopted sister, you will be my adopted brother and I will call you little Momo. You and my new sister will move into the castle immediately. From now on, that will be your new home. ” Landon said

    Momo couldn’t believe it…this was the king. Although Momo was 8 years old, he knew when people were kind or tried to help him. He could tell that Landon was a good person.

    Landon introduced Momo to Lucius and the other knights. Everyone started teasing Momo, making him blush.

    “Little Momo, let’s go take my sister my new sister home.”
    They carried the boar and left the forest.

    Landon, Momo and the men stood outside a tiny house. They could hear tiny cough sounds coming from inside. Landon went in with Momo, Josh and Lucius.
    “Sister, sister, I brought food for you”

    Momo yelled as he ran into the house. Landon and group waited in the living room area.

    When Momo stepped into the bedroom room, he saw a frail but extremely beautiful girl laying on a straw bed. She had fiery red hair, light brown eyes and a petite frame.

    “Sister, the King is here to see you”

    Grace nearly fell out of the bed when she heard Momo.

    “Momo, did you get into any trouble? why would the king want to see me?” Grace asked questionably.

    Momo then narrated the entire story to Grace.

    “Then let me thank his Highness then” she said as she tried to stand up.

    “Sister, he said that when your ready he would come in.”
    She nodded and Momo went out. A few seconds later, Momo, Landon, Lucius and Josh walked.

    “Your highness”, she said as bowed her head.

    Looking at the tiny girl in front of him, Landon was sure she was 19 years old. In truth she looked like a mini-version of ‘Erza scarlet Titania’ from ‘Fairy Tale’.

    “Please be at ease, your my big sister afterall.”He said gently with a smile on his face.

    Grace was taken aback by his words, and after a while she relaxed. She found that what Momo said was true. He was ready a kind fellow. He was somewhat cute, with his big white eyes. He looked like a cute bunny rabbit, she thought.

    “My name is Landon.This is Commander Lucius and this is Captain Josh. May I know your name elder sister?”

    As Josh looked at the girl in front of him, he almost forgot to breath. Although she looked sick, she was incredibly gorgeous. Her red hair and petite frame made her look like a fairy. The more he looked at her, the more he blushed.

    The same thing could be said for Grace, she had a hard time taking her eyes of Josh.

    She had never felt this way before. She blushed so hard that her already light red face turned deep red.

    Of course Lucius and Landon noticed all these and couldn’t help chuckling inwardly.

    “My name is Grace Lye.”

    “Grace, since I already take you as part of my family. I cannot bare to let you stay here with Momo on your own. For the safety of you two, please move into the palace with us.” Landon asked.

    “Your highness…”

    “Please call Little Landon”, Landon said smilingly

    “Little Landon I’ll go with you.”
    Momo was so happy, that he jumped on the bed and gave his sister a big hug.

    Captain Josh, help sister Grace pack up here. Commander Lucius, Little Momo and myself will pack up in the dining area”

    Josh was stunned. He turned and saw Lucius and Landon chuckling. He turned his head back to Grace. She keep looking towards the floor, but it was clear that she tried to hide her blush. She was so cute.Josh smiled and thought,
    ‘These bastards,they even have the nerve to give me a thumbs up..

    .Haha .Luckily she didnt see anything…It would have been so embarrassing.’
