Chronicles of Primordial Wars

Chapter 182 - Cave grabbing

Translated by Joycelyn
Edited by EvilGurl, Ilesyt


There were many potteries around, some were even painted with different patterns on them.

Bust pottery, canvas pottery, and so on… depicted with each tribe’s uniqueness on it. Not only was it practical, but it also possessed a beauty to look at too. It brought along a sense of mysteriousness and a mystical artistic hue.

Those round or semicircular potteries were used as containers, to put objects into. For those with ears on them, they were tied with a thin string.

Not only were there these unusual stuff, but there were even more creative potteries, like pitchers with three legs, potteries for eating, and also urns with those small mouths.

“What are those used for?” Shao Xuan asked the guy beside him while pointing at the area where the urns with small mouths and some funnel looking thing were.

“Oh, that. It is said to be for wine.” The guy beside answered, his eyes looking over that area with envy, “I heard those are wares for wine, they were used to transport wine. It is very popular here. I have traded for a pottery like that before, but it did not come with wine. But it was quite convenient using these potteries for storage and transportation. These kinds do not easily spill out of their caps, that sharp bottom of theirs is also more wear-resistant. It is quite convenient to use. Later when we go back, I am planning to trade for a few more. It will be good if I could get some wine too.

“What is wine?” Yu curiously asked.

“Wine? Some kind of water?” Another person who did not know as well asked, “I have not drank it before, but the head leader has said before that wine was made from food. Tribes who have wine are all big tribes, they do not lack food.”

Few young guys in the surrounding showed faces of envy. Do not lack of food, and still have the material and spiritual enjoyment, who would not be envious.

Many tribes in the central area, their animal husbandry and agriculture have advanced quite far. When there is an overage of food, then can develop their handicraft rapidly. They have a bountiful amount of art, this is also why travellers say that the central tribes are very exciting.

Art design has a relationship between ‘functionality’ and ‘decoration’. In such a place, the people’s labor, their daily tasks, these were all for surviving. After all, survival was the most important, and way of life, was lined after it.

Creativeness is so that they can live a better life, therefore all creating activity, even if it is in a barbaric and primitive colored place, designing potteries was also considered as the ‘people’s’ core, with ‘practicality’ being the fundamentals.

The potteries that Shao Xuan had seen layed out had many kinds and patterns, when the few old fellows back at the Flaming Horns tribe were intoxicated with the ancient potteries that they had, here there were already many more patterns and varieties.

If those fellows at the Flaming Horns tribe saw these, who knows what thoughts would they have in their mind. Especially Xing, who had showed off his precious pottery in front of Shao Xuan.

Other than potteries, there were jade products. Among them there were stripes, half-rings, or even rings less than half. There were a few semi-circular jade ornaments shaped like bridges, some jades had nothing on them, plain, there were only one or a few holes on them. And some jades were carved with complex decorations, some were were even engraved fully.

“Are all those jades?” Both of Yu’s eyes shone while looking at them.

“Yeah, those are jades. but, they are not of very good quality. Later you pay attention when you are looking around, each member of the Mang Tribe, they have a jade on them. Most of them are like this shape.” A traveller gestured a shape, drawing out an arc like that of a bridge, “These type of people belonging to the Mang tribe are all of a higher status, we better not offend them.”

The few young people in the surrounding quickly nodded.
“For now, let’s not bother browsing around, we still have not found a cave to rest yet.” An experienced traveller called to those youngsters who were looking left and right, “Don’t walk away and get lost, you will suffer if you get lost here, maybe you will even lose your life.”

At a lawless place like this, everything is naturally determined by strength. The central tribes are generally stronger, so travellers like them would group themselves in a big group. It is safer like this.

From hereon, people from the travel team were not that relaxed anymore, they also did not have the heart to notice the scenery. They had to constantly be alert. There were many from other tribes around, anybody could also become their enemy. Without you noticing, they would stab you with a knife, snatch your possessions, and then slip into the shadows. These kind of situations were not uncommon.

Not far away from this market, there were hills, although not many, but there were many caves. Some were naturally formed, but some were dug out by travellers who came before.

The Mang tribe and the rest of the eight tribes would not bother with the caves on that side. The people who came to the market, whether they could stay in a cave depended on their true ability.

If you walked further in, entering the territory of the Mang tribe or any of the other eight tribes, there will be already built houses, and it was also safer there as well. But if you stay there, you would have to use many things to trade, and the travellers were not willing to go over.

Shao Xuan and the travel team made it to the front of the hill.

Pa!

A guy who had been beaten till his bones were twisted was thrown down from a height. He breathed out a few more breaths before stopping eternally.

The people around him were minding their own business, like they had not seen the dead guy lying there. They spoke what they needed to, do what they needed to do.

The travellers, even if they saw something strange, it was not strange to them. Things like this happen daily, snatching caves, snatching things, fighting when it is not pleasing to your eyes. Anytime, these can be seen, it is just that sometimes petty quarrels can lead to someone losing his life.

When closing in on the hill, subtle changes also occurred within the travel team. The more experienced and stronger warriors walked at the outside of the group, while the injured ones and the overly young and inexperienced ones gathered in the centre. At this time, there was no separation between tribes. Since they had partnered up when they came here, then naturally they should work in cooperation. Here, they had to band together, if not, they would be considered weak to the others.

There were small and large caves, this team had hundreds of people, of course they would need a larger cave to stay in, and the fight over the larger caves was very aggressive.

The few leaders at the front of the team looked towards the hill, with just one look at the people coming out from their caves, the more experienced travellers could guess roughly how strong they were. If they were too strong, they couldn’t afford to offend them, the caves where the weaker ones stayed also couldn’t be that big either, therefore they targeted the more average and those that couldn’t endure any more opponents to snatch from.

“That side.”

Fan Ning pointed towards a direction, the other leaders also nodded their heads in agreement, gesturing for their own tribes to follow.

With a team of hundreds of members coming over, they couldn’t help but attract a few stares, and some people also had some impression of this group. Those who were more familiar with them would also know their way of handling things, and those who were new to them, went around to investigate about them now. To have a stable standing in this chaotic place, it is a must to know your enemies as well as your comrades.

The few first time young men, the novelty and excitement they had felt at first had long been replaced by the pressure and the strange stressful atmosphere around. They did not even dare to meet anyone’s eyes.

“Lift your heads up, don’t act all like a coward. You’re throwing away your tribe’s face!” Someone in the team commanded in a low voice.

Shao Xuan looked at the other people on the hill, they all looked the same, nobody had an extra arm or two legs less, but their facial features and body size still had more obvious differences.

Some had painted faces and some did not, and their clothes also had their own intricate styles. One could see who was rough with just one look. This place really was a ‘hodgepodge’. It was also really the first time for Shao Xuan, being at a place with so many people who came from so many different tribes.

Walking up the hill a little, the team went straight into a slightly larger cave.

At the entrance of that cave sat a few people. Seeing the group coming over, they called out to the people inside the cave to come out.

“We have already taken this cave.” A skinny tall guy walked out and said.

“Oh,” Fan Ning continued on with the team, “Now, it’s ours!”

With no further words, the fight had begun.

A silhouette sprang out from within the cave, the sound of wind broke while he headed towards Fan Ning at the center.

Bracing the sudden burst of air, Fan Ning’s both eyes grinned, a cold glint flashed past his eyes, he stepped forward, his ankle abruptly turned, and his shoulder flashed, welcoming the opponent.

The opponent’s legs swung sharply, hidden with murderous intent. Shao Xuan didn’t doubt that this one kick could make one’s brain move house.

After that kick was blocked by Fan Ning, the opponent landed on the ground and changed to using his hands. He swung his hands like an axe moving up and down. When Fan Ning dodged, his arms directly hit onto the rock on the side. A deep mark was left on it.

Shao Xuan, who was also young, was shoved to the middle by the travellers. The surrounding young guys were silent, their eyes wide open, staring over to that side, looking at the dangerous battle going on. When they just arrived, that guy, who was beaten till his bones broke, had already left a very deep impression on them. Maybe the guys who lose will end up like that too. Losing the cave is small, but if you lose your life, then everything will be for naught. But at this moment, although you know its dangerous, you also cannot take a single step back.

“Do you know what type of frog leader Fan Ning likes the best?” Yu whispered to Shao Xuan.

“What type?” Shao Xuan turned towards Yu. He remembered that the flower pattern around Fan Ning’s eyes weren’t that many colours. Like the bright fresh colours of the poisonous frog’s patterns that Yu had.

“The Overlord Jiao frogs. He and the Chief like the same kind.” Yu explained.

Guang Hou, the chief of the Pu tribe, his appearance was just like a dumpling. After that meeting, Shao Xuan knew from seeing some of the frogs, which were bigger in size than any others, from the Pu tribe’s events that Guang Hou’s appearance was very much alike to Jiao frogs. And the few whose body size were bigger in the Pu tribe, all had more explosive personalities as well.

Fan Ning likes the Overlord Jiao frogs the best, his temperament was also closer towards the overlord. Also, his true ability was also one that the Pu tribe could rely on.

Although this Pu tribe travel team leader had never given Shao Xuan a good attitude during the entire trip, but Shao Xuan couldn’t help but admit that Fan Ning was a person with ability.

That side, Fan Ning had caught onto a negligence of the opponent, a seemingly simple move, although the punch he made looked to be nothing special, but it was actually packed with an overbearing force, breaking through the air, straight into the other’s chest.

Pu!

The guy who abruptly suffered the blow got blown away, landing on the ground roughly ten meters away. The opponent still got up while struggling, planned to say something, however he spit out a mouthful of blood instead.

Quite a few of the opponent’s group members’ faces changed, and looked horrified at Fan Ning, who stood there. Although Fan Ning had suffered a few blows too from him, his beast skin clothing was torn a little and stained with blood from his wound, but compared to the guy who got blown away, FanNing’s condition was already considered very good. Moreover, Fan Ning still stood there stable and firm.

Shao Xuan thought that Fan Ning had actually held back a little with this punch. During the trip here, he had seen Fan Ning hunting wild beasts before, and at that time, he really used his explosive power. If just now he had punched with all his strength, the opponent would had lost his life much sooner. If there was one more punch, the opponent’s bones would probably be all in pieces then.

The opponent was being helped up, blood was still flowing from the corner of his mouth. Even if he did not hurt his bones, but that powerful force from the punch still made him suffer a major injury to his inner organs. Continuing to battle was impossible for him, he could feel that his own bones, although not broken, but were still fractured. If he took another hit, he would be in a much more miserable state than he is now.

Rush in with his body and continue fighting? Not worth it.

Someone from the opponent’s group still wanted to say something, but catching a view of Fan Ning’s frosty grinning eyes, he then swallowed his words back down.

“Who else?” Fan Ning stood there, his sight swept past the group gathering at the cave’s entrance. Many did not dare to meet his sight. The tough and arrogant display of power just now, and the fast yet violent blow, completely broke these people’s guts.

Their leader was already beaten, even if their group had some capable ones, with their amount, they also couldn’t beat them. Looking at their opponents, each and everyone of their mental state was very good, especially the one who had fought with their leader. With a face full of evil, standing there, looking like he could still go a few more rounds.

Forget it, let’s go, bah. Can’t beat the leader, can’t beat with quantity either, might as well save up their battle strength to look for another target.

The group of people originally standing in front of the cave’s entrance, one after another, packed up and left. They planned to vie another smaller cave that they had seen yesterday. The people in that cave looked easier to take care of.

With such a result, Yu gave Shao Xuan a proud look: Look, our leader is domineering!

At the same time, Yu had thought, as expected of someone with paintings of the overlord Jiao frogs. If Leader Fan Ning had the same eyebrows as the chief, then it would be good. He will then really have the look of an overlord Jiao frog.

Not only Yu, but many youths from the Pu tribe also became fervent, looking at Fan Ning with admiration.

Fan Ning had a look like a cold guy on a high pedestal, but in fact, in his heart he was suffering. If he had battled again with his paralysed body, he would definitely lose terribly then. The few hits he took had injured his inner organs, he was only pretending he was alright and just needed a rest. His last punch he did not use his full power because he wanted to save up a little strength to prepare for what’s to come later. Snatching a cave, you only need to deter and force out your opponents.

“Go in and tidy things up. bah.” Fan Ning told the others.

The team poured in. Their team was rather large and this cave was just enough to accommodate them. Although the space that they could move around in was not a lot, but to be able to posses this cave, it was already good enough.

The crowd was happily going in, but then from within the cave came a person’s voice.

“What are you making noise for!” The voice sounded leisurely and lazy, and along it also came a yawn.

Hearing this voice, the travel team had not thought that the cave they had already snatched still had someone who dared to stay behind?! Could it be that someone from that group before had someone who slept like the dead and did not hear the noise?

“Who? Come out! We have already taken over this cave, you better pack up your things and leave!” One of the leaders from the group shouted with surprise and anger.
