Tales Of The World Devouring Serpent - Chapter 274
4/6 chapter, enjoy.
The humans on the Blue Planet can be said to be the children of the planet. The kaiju, ancient and mutated creatures, viruses, deadly gases, natural energy devouring bugs, aliens, as well as floods, earthquakes, and other natural disasters, all of these weren’t able to exterminate them, and their number is slowly growing back.
If viewed from the perspective of God, after the human federation left the Blue Planet, the number of the remaining survivors are less than 1 million, and they are scattered across the planet, still struggling to survive.
Recently, their numbers have begun to grow slowly. On Asian for example, there are more than half a million people, most of them concentrated in plateaus, but most of them started to migrate towards the central plains.
After all, in the plains, the land is more fertile and more suitable for growing various crops.
Some groups occupied a favorable position, then started to develop, growing crops, building houses, and trying to restore the previous society.
For example, in the area of the previous ‘Panda country’, a tribe called “Xia Tribe” was established. The number of people in that tribe is in the thousands and their number is rapidly growing.
The division of labor, collection, hunting, planting, animal rearing, etc., is properly assigned to the right people. After all, they are modern people.
They are very organized in their work, and everyone takes their jobs very seriously. Those who aren’t serious and sloppy are quicked out of the tribe after a certain amount of warnings.
Most of the tribes and gatherings around the world are like this. There is a clear division of labor. In such harsh times, no one will take care of people that don’t want to take responsibility.
Usually, once a tribe completely stabilize, babies start springing up like mushrooms. Babies born in this era are actually quite strange. The rate of their growth and nutrition requirements is many times higher than before.
For example, in this era, a baby can crawl after 10 days, walk after 2 to 3 months, and talk after 1 year. Their growth rate, strength, intelligence, and more, are a lot higher than ever before.
After the catastrophe that had spread to the whole Blue Planet many years ago, humans struggled against the various mutant creatures and wild beasts, gathered together, then used their wisdom to once again climb to the top of the food chain.
Fang Yun didn’t know anything about the situation of the leftover humans on land. He hardly climbed on the shore, spending most of his time in the ocean, repeating the monotonous action of hunting creatures and eating creatures.
He is now like a machine processing seafood, swallowing huge amounts of various creatures in his stomach every day, rapidly digesting them, then converting them into bio-energy points.
The next evolution requires 1.2 billion bio-energy points.
What is this concept?
If an ordinary 10 kilograms fish provides him with 100 bio-energy points, then he needs to eat 12 million fish of that size, which is basically 120 million kilograms or 120,000 ton of meat. This number will only get higher in the future.
He couldn’t help thinking, will he devour the entire marine life of this planet in the future?
During this time, he went back to the Grass Sea once. The space vortex is still there and as expected, he can’t enter it. However, it seems to be getting smaller?
Fang Yun wasn’t sure, the space didn’t have a significant change overall, probably a dozen meters smaller?
Although compared to the 12 kilometers wide vortex, it might be insignificant, but this still gave him a lot of pressure, causing him to hunt marine creatures even more crazily.
Time has passed quickly. More than thirty years later, the humans on the Blue Planet have ushered in a pace of rapid development.
Because of the major changes in humans physique, they can jump higher, run faster, and exert extreme strength. Even in front of those native mutant creaturs, apart from major gatherings and ultra-high levels monsters, all of the rest can only serve as their food.
The most important point is that the growth rate of children in the post-apocalyptic era is almost terrifying. Five years olds are equivalent to the 15-year-old child of the previous era, and 8 years old are equivalent to complete adults.
Whether it’s their bodies or minds, they are all equivalent to mature adults.
If an 8 years old human of the post-apocalyptic era is put into the old era or even the disaster era, no one will believe that it’s actually an 8 years-old child. Whether it’s from demeanors or physical points of view.
Due to the shortening of the growth process, the number of human beings has increased dramatically. Right now, the largest tribe has a population of more than 100,000.
In fact, it can’t be called a tribe anymore, a city would be more appropriate.
They built cities, made of cement and bricks. The efficiency of a single human in this era is more than that of a construction team of the old era.
Although they didn’t know how to make cement and other industrial materials at first, through constant trials and error, they were able to finally create them;
In addition, after a certain amount of development time, most cities acquired certain industrial capabilities, iron forging, etc…
Convenient transportation means also appeared. Steam trains, bicycles, and even cars.
They were even able to create guns, they also acquired techniques of papermaking and printing lately. Overall, they are constantly advancing, with the goal of returning to the peak of their technological advancements in the disaster era.
There is a certain distance between cities, but most of them know the existence of each other.
At the beginning, most of the cities were fairly harmonious. Everyone helped and cooperated with each other, but as cities continued to expand, their lords’ ambitions grew, and thus war started.
At first, it was just a small conflict between two cities, which quickly escalated into a big conflict. In the end, it reached the point of war between almost 10 cities.
While the war resulted in many human casualties, it also promoted the integration of various cities and the unreserved exchange of various technologies. It can be considered as progress for the whole human civilization.
During this time, Fang Yun has been hunting in the ocean. He has been working like a machine during all these years, hunting and eating prey every day, with hardly any rest.
If it wasn’t because of the giant turtle company and their interaction every day, he doubted whether he’ll become crazy.
In these thirty years, he has evolved ten times.
Up to now, his level has reached 46. His accumulated skill points have reached 455. He also got new skills and ones that he really wanted.
These two skills can be considered as the upgraded version of “Steel Body” and “Quick Regeneration”. Each upgrade requires 50 skill points.
He didn’t hesitate to max out “Divine Armor”, then he used the rest of the skill points to upgrade “Life Spirit” 4 times.
However, even when his defense was increased by 20 times, and that he can regenerate any part of his body apart from his head, he still feels fatally threatened when he approaches the space vortex.
Fang Yun was very depressed. Even after maxing out his new defense skill, his defense is still not enough to protect him for the space energy in the space vortex.
That’s just ridiculous. Relying on the two new skills, He is now pretty sure to tank small and medium nuclear and hydrogen bombs.
With his current defense, nuclear bombs under 1 million tons equivalent can only injure him, which he can instantly regenerate.
Nuclear bombs between 1 and 50 million tons can only seriously injure him, after which he can also quickly heal. Only bombs above the equivalent of 100 million tons constitute a fatal threat to him.
Even so, he is guaranteed to immediately die the moment he crosses the space vortex, hence his anger and helplessness.
In desperation, he can only continue to stay on the Blue Planet and wait until the space energy in the vortex lowers down to a level he can withstand.
In addition, in these years, he finally discovered the existence of the leftover humans on land. After a short curiosity, he didn’t bother them, nor did he appear in front of them. However, a few humans were still able to find some of his traces.
In the blink of an eye, another 50 years have passed.
There have been some dramatic changes in the land.
