"The Tiandu Chamber of Commerce's nameplates are divided into three colors; crimson, silver-white, and dark golden. When you've traded a certain amount of goods with the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce, you'll receive this nameplate. Dark golden has the highest requirements. You must've traded goods with them worth more than ten million Chi-ama.s.sing Pills or more to obtain this nameplate. The Tiandu Chamber of Commerce has also established auction houses and shops in the Capital City. With this nameplate, you'd receive a certain discount when purchasing goods from them. If you don't have enough money, you could ask for an advance of two hundred thousand Chi-ama.s.sing Pills. More crucially, the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce will have a Heavenly Venerable Rank powerhouse keeping watch in the Capital City. When needed, you could ask him for help. With this nameplate, the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce would presumably help you with anything, as long as it doesn't go against their interests," Ye Changxuan explained. In so many countries across the continent, only fifty or so of these dark golden nameplates had been given out. Many royal members and n.o.bles could not even receive one. It had momentous significance."Granduncle, how did you get this token? Could it be that your trade was that successful?" Ye Chen asked, amazed. Some suspicious thoughts surfaced in his mind and used his Astral Body to perform a careful sweep of the nameplate. Fortunately, the nameplate had not been fiddled with. It looked like the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce's reputation was reliable and he was just suspicious over nothing.
"Your Second Uncle and Third Uncle had contacted the Bei'an County's branch of the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce to sell Lingzhi to them but the Bei'an County's branch was unable to withdraw so many medicinal pills at one time. Thus, they could only contact the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce's main branch. First, they paid your Second Uncle and Third Uncle five hundred thousand Chi-ama.s.sing Pills and five thousand Chi Deposition Pills. The rest will be paid in one go when they send someone from the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce's main branch. Moreover, three of these dark golden nameplates were also given. Your Third Uncle traveled over several nights to bring back these items, leaving your Second Uncle to wait there for the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce's remaining payment," Ye Changxuan explained.
The Ye Clan had sold tens of thousands of stalks of Blood-Fungus, Cloud Fragrance Fungus, and Silver Moon Fungus. This amount of traded goods had even surpa.s.sed the amount some empires' royal tribes had traded over a dozen years. With this Lingzhi trade, the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce would at least earn a clean profit of over ten million Chi-ama.s.sing Pills. Would those at the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce not hasten to hold on dearly to a significant client like this?
"Can we trust Tiandu Chamber of Commerce?" Ye Chen asked. He was still very cautious. After all, this was an important matter.
"You can be rest a.s.sured. During the trade, your Second Uncle and Third Uncle were very prudent. The Tiandu Chamber of Commerce never pried into their backgrounds and only proceeded accordingly by the book," Ye Changxuan said, then picked up a few Heaven-Earth Pouches. "Keep these with you in case you need them."
Ye Chen took a look. These Heaven-Earth Pouches were s.p.a.cious and were filled with many porcelain bottles. Each bottle contained around a hundred Chi-ama.s.sing Pills or Chi Deposition Pills. After a rough count, Ye Chen estimated that there were three hundred thousand Chi-ama.s.sing Pills and five thousand Chi Deposition Pills.
"Why did a branch of such an enormous Tiandu Chamber of Commerce pay only such a small bit?" Ye Chen asked, puzzled.
Ye Changxuan chuckled. "Initially, we could've taken some bills, which can be exchanged for Chi-ama.s.sing Pills and Chi Deposition Pills at any of the major banks. However, to avoid others from tracking them down, your Second Uncle and Third Uncle requested that the Tiandu Chamber of Commerce pay fully in Chi-ama.s.sing Pills and Chi Deposition Pills, so hence…"
"Granduncle, if I take all these with me, what if the clan needs them?"
"We've kept two hundred thousand Chi-ama.s.sing Pills with us – that's enough. When your Second Uncle and Third Uncle return, the number of Chi-ama.s.sing Pills and Chi Deposition Pills alone will be unfathomable," Ye Changxuan said. Although at the moment he did not know how many Chi-ama.s.sing Pills and Chi Deposition Pills they would receive, he was certain that it would be a colossal sum of wealth. To say that this wealth would rival an entire nation would not be an exaggeration! At that point, they would only have to worry about how to spend all of these Chi-ama.s.sing Pills and Chi Deposition Pills.
Ye Chen thought about it. Now that he was heading to the Capital City, he would have plenty of expenses. Thus, he accepted these gifts, moving the Chi-ama.s.sing Pills and Chi Deposition Pills into the armguard's s.p.a.ce.
"Little Chen, how do we get in touch with you in the future?" Ye Changxuan asked. The Capital City was huge. Even if they knew where Ye Chen was, they would not be able to enter the Imperial City.

Ye Chen gave it some thought. "If a clan member wishes to look for me in the Capital City, just ride the Vermillion Spirit Condor over and I'll have a way to contact them." The Vermillion Spirit Condor was Ye Chen's mystical beast. Even from a thousand miles away, it could communicate with Ye Chen at any time.
Ye Chen stayed in the valley for three more days, bidding farewell to each one of his clan members. Thereafter, he made a trip to Donglin City. There, his father had started things on the right track with the a.s.sistance of a martial arts family led by the Xu Clan. By now, the Ye Clan was getting renowned. Ye Zhantian was a Tenth Level fighter. With so many Tenth Level mystical beasts under his command, which martial arts family would dare to get on Ye Zhantian's bad side? In addition, Ye Chen had previously distributed quite an amount of grains to the people of Donglin City. They were all praising the Ye Clan. The implementation of decrees which Ye Zhantian had issued went more smoothly than expected. Nonetheless, things had just stabilized and there were still many problems.
After Ye Chen had made sure that things in Donglin City were fine and said goodbye to his father, he found a first-rate Nightwind. Taking Little Tanuki with him, he began his journey. It was a long journey and he did not know how long it would take to reach the Capital City.
It was a shame that Raven Hawk and Vermillion Spirit Condor had work to do. Otherwise, riding them to the Capital City would be extremely fast.
Anyway, there was plenty of time. There were towering mountains and steep ridges by the wayside. After coming out from the Sunken Jade Tower, his Astral Body had grown much stronger. He did not know whether he could capture more mystical beasts. Little Tanuki's sixth tail was more than half-grown and she was also a top Tenth Level mystical beast, able to catch three mystical beasts. On their way, they could look around and see if there were any suitable ones.
Ye Chen was no longer interested in top Tenth Level mystical beasts. If anything, he would capture those above Earthly Adept Rank! An Earthly Adept Rank mystical beast was not inferior in the slightest to an Earthly Venerable Rank fighter!
It would be perfect if there were mystical beasts above Heavenly Adept Rank. Ye Chen just did not know if his Astral Body could overpower them. If he could make them yield, he would capture one. If he could not do so, he had no choice but to drop them. Even if he encountered a Heavenly Adept Rank mystical beast that he could not defeat, he should be able to frighten it away.
Ever since he came across the Daemon King in the Sunken Jade Tower, Ye Chen could not be bothered with ordinary mystical beasts and Celestial Beasts.
