Chronicles of Primordial Wars

Chapter 197 - Observing the sky and praying for rain

Translated by Lesyt Team
Edited by Ilesyt


After leaving the Rain tribe, Yang Sui spent most of the time with some traveling teams, so he became talkative and enjoyed chatting with others when he was free.

Like now, when Shao Xuan asked him, he kept talking.

Yang Sui told him where he had been, who he had met, and which tribes he had encountered after leaving the tribe. He didn’t think he needed to keep it a secret. But he wasn’t trying to show off. In many tribes, most people seldom had such a chance to travel around, and they seldom had the courage to do so. Yang Sui did so, and was  still alive now.

“In fact, I haven’t become the shaman of our tribe yet. After I go back, I will finally become the shaman.” Yang Sui said proudly.

“Isn’t your tribe worried about your safety?” Shao Xuan asked.

“We have no choice. This is the rule set by our ancestors. If I die, another person will continue on. When someone succeeds and returns to the tribe, he will be qualified to be the shaman.” Yang Sui said.

Shao Xuan thought about it and asked, “If the shaman leaves the tribe and dies, will there be a successor?”

“Of course, there will.” Yang Sui felt it very strange that Shao Xuan didn’t even knew this, then he glanced at the sword in Shao Xuan’s hand. He thanked Shao Xuan for giving him a beast leg, so he said, “As long as the fire seed exists, someone will be selected as the successor. But it takes a lot of time to train him. Different tribes have different ways to select the shaman. As for the selection of the chief, if one is capable enough, he will be selected in accordance with the rules of his tribe.”

“That is to say, if the fire seed exists, everything will be OK. If not, everything is over.”

“That is right. That is why I am puzzled. Where is the fire seed of your tribe?”

“…Not here.”

“Oh.”  Yang Sui knew Shao Xuan did not want to tell him more, so he no longer asked. Regarding a tribe’s secret matters, no one would tell anything to outsiders.

Thinking about Yang Sui’s words, Shao Xuan thought of the way of succession of the shaman in his tribe and sighed silently.

The incomplete fire seed in the Flaming Horns tribe was dysfunctional.

They no longer talked about the fire seed. While talking about the Flaming Horns tribe, which had been disappeared nearly a thousand years ago, Yang Sui also mentioned the Lu tribe, which was a central tribe with a long history. The success of this tribe in the central region was attributed to their talent for breeding but also to the ancestors of this tribe.

“The ancestors of the Lu tribe?” Shao Xuan did not expect that it went that far back.

“I just heard of it.” During his travels, Yang Sui gathered a lot of information.

“It is said that nearly a thousand years ago, the ancestors of the Lu tribe helped several large tribes when the continent changed a lot. People at that time lacked food, so many targeted the Lu tribe. Helpless, the clever ancestors of the Lu tribe not only provided food for the large tribes, but also taught them some better breeding skills. Although many learned the skills, they didn’t do as well as those in the Lu tribe, but at least they could ease the crisis. The  ancestors of these tribes reached a win-win agreement - so the Lu tribe was protected, and until now there have been close ties among these tribes.”

A Yang Sui said, in terms of breeding, they were very simple skills. But even if the others learned all the skills, they couldn’t do as well as the Lu tribe. In  the areas with a large population, people got most of their food through farming and breeding. Many central tribes had large areas for farming and breeding, and the areas were larger than those recorded by the ancestors of the Flaming Horns tribe.

There was no doubt that over the past thousand years, breeding and farming had developed a lot.

Shao Xuan thought that he could get an opportunity to learn breeding from the Lu tribe.

After staying in the old haunt for another two days, Shao Xuan decided to leave.

Winter was coming, and the temperature significantly dropped and he had to find someone.

“Where are you going?” Asked Yang Sui.

“The Longboat tribe.”

“Hey, so do I... I also need to go past there. I need to go back to the Rain tribe. Going through there isn’t taking a long way around for me .”

Yang Sui did not know how long it would take to find a traveling team that shared the same route with after walking out of the Ferocious Beasts Mountain Forest. Even if he found such a team, he was not sure whether it would be safe to stay with that team. And in his eyes, Shao Xuan was powerful. Moreover, he had an eagle. Therefore, it was certain that he would be much safer going with Shao Xuan. If he left on his own and met the Wan Shi tribe again,  he would be killed.

Yang Sui offered to go with him, and Shao Xuan did not refuse him. He knew little about this place, and he didn’t stay here for such a long period of time as Yang Sui did. Having listened to what Yang Sui said, he believed that Yang Sui was quite familiar with the central region. With his guide, Shao Xuan could improve his map.

Shao Xuan agreed to let him come along, so Yang Sui was very happy and very excited. Looking at Chacha flying in the sky, he was looking forward to going with them and couldn’t wait. He even wanted to try sitting on the eagle’s back. When he returned, he could boast that he had ever sat on an eagle’s back!

“But...” Yang Sui looked at the sky and said, “Today it will rain until the evening. Let's wait and find a place to rest. Let’s set off tomorrow, OK? It will be sunny afterwards.”

Shao Xuan looked at the sky, and he noticed the clouds didn’t change a lot. But he still nodded his head.

Not far from the fire pit at the old haunt, there was a hole on the mountain. Although it was less spacious than a cave, they could seek shelter from the rain .

While taking shelter from the rain, Shao Xuan asked Yang Sui, “Can you gain information by observing the sky?”

The weather changed very quickly here, so only part of the common knowledge of his past life could be applied. Shao Xuan often failed to predict the weather, for the clouds sometimes changed very fast. It was difficult to predict the weather a long time in advance.

“Observe the sky? Maybe.” Yang Sui said, “The reason why I was the first candidate for shaman was that I was the first to succeed in praying for rain.”

While speaking of “succeed in praying for rain”, Yang Sui spoke with a little bit of guilt.

A long time ago, the shaman of the Rain tribe could pray for rain at any time. Even during the dry season, the shaman could let drops of rain fall. Later, this ability was lost.

It was said that the first shaman who failed to pray for rain was burned to death. He had irritated the god of sky, so the totem couldn’t work to bring them rain. But later, the second, third, and even more still failed to do so. At the beginning, everyone panicked, but they had now become indifferent to it. All means had been tried, but there was no way. A new rule was made so the candidate must travel around to find a solution. But over the past many years, no shaman of the Rain tribe succeeded in praying for rain, but this rule was still imposed until now.

Therefore, when Yang Sui “succeeded in praying for rain”, many were stunned in the tribe. But in fact. Yang Sui only observed the sky and forecast the rain, but the others in the tribe misunderstood him. Yang Sui had intended to explain to them, but he gave up when he saw the response of those in the tribe and the sparkling eyes of the chief. He thought if he had explained to them, he would have been burned to death in the fire pit by the chief.

“Oh!” Yang Sui could not help but sigh.

The thought of praying for rain made Yang Sui feel pain in his body as if he was burned. He hoped that he wouldn’t have to tell the truth when returning to the tribe.

Not in every tribe did the shaman have the highest status . If he was powerful and also good at deceiving the others, he enjoyed the highest status. However, if not, he would be burned to death or be punished in the tribe, like the Rain tribe.

Yang Sui didn’t talk much about the Rain tribe, so Shao Xuan could only guess the situation of that tribe based on his words. But could anyone succeed in praying for rain? That sounded amazing.

As Yang Sui said, the rain kept falling until the night.

The next day, it was sunny again. The sun was shining on the earth and drove away the coolness of late autumn.

“When we reach the Longboat tribe, it may snow, right?” Yang Sui said. Because of the matter of praying for rain, Yang Sui paid attention to the climate and weather changes in every place he arrived. He inquired about the climate of previous years, and then according to the information he got, he predicted the weather. He just made some predictions in advance and only when he got there could he reach any conclusion.

Having packed up, Shao Xuan gestured for Chacha to come down.

Looking at Chacha, Yang Sui was excited. And so when Shao Xuan jumped up, he also followed him to climb up.

However, Chacha flew up when Shao Xuan jumped on his back.

“Hey?” Ready to lift his leg up to climb up, Yang Sui was shocked.

Chacha flew in a circle, and then flew down to grab Yang Sui.

“Hey?!!” Seeing the eagle claw, Yang Sui wanted to run back at once.

He ran, but the eagle was faster than him. He was caught before he could run far enough.

Yang Sui, when hiding in the woods, saw Chacha kill the men of the Wan Shi tribe with its claw. At this time, the thought of this bloody picture came to his mind. He closed his eyes as he felt he was about to die.

But soon, he felt something different. The strength of the eagle claw was not as great as he imagined, and he wasn’t scratched.

Opening his eyes, Yang Sui saw he was leaving the ground rapidly .

For the first time, he was brought into such a height in the air.

“AAAaaaahhh~~!!”

Early in the morning, a scream was heard over the forest and startled a group of birds which was looking for food.

After a while of having screamed his lungs out, Yang Sui became quiet. He saw a tribe beneath his feet.

Chacha deliberately flew over the Wan Shi tribe and dropped some feces along the way. Then it turned around, and flew towards the direction which Shao Xuan pointed at .

The Longboat tribe also lived in the central region, but not close to the center. The tribe lived next to a wide river. Undoubtedly, the widest river in the central region was way narrower than that one in front of the Flaming Horns tribe. That river was as wide as an ocean.

While traveling with the team of the Pu tribe, Shao Xuan heard someone in the team say that the traveling team of the Pu tribe had been to the Longboat tribe before. But for some reasons, the team changed the route later. Shao Xuan got all the information about the Longboat tribe from the travelers.

Those in the Longboat tribe were good at shipbuilding. It was said that the tribe made the first boat in the central region, and later this tribe developed a fleet. Owning a fleet was  also the characteristics of this tribe.

How could they make useful and strong boats mentioned by the travelers without metal?

Shao Xuan was very curious about this.

  • Be responsible

First month you will be working sort of as an intern to test you. You won't be paid for that month. If you pass the test, you will be paid, but don't expect much at the start.
It is not a 24/7 job right now.
When you complete a year as the COO, you will have 5% ownership of the company, another 5% the year after!
