Chapter 213: You can sell me something then
The more serious a person is, the crazier that person will feel talking to Robb.
Only those who are naughty enough to destroy heaven and earth can collude with Robb.
Her Majesty was obviously not naughty enough, her brain trembled by Robb's words, and she didn't know what to say.
Robb suddenly smiled and said, "Sister Queen, I know that you have tried out the excellence of my equipment.
For fear that I will sell it to Mondra and that your army will suffer great losses, you want to eat all my goods.
In fact, you don't have to worry so much.
There are not many miners in Westwind Town.
I have just counted that less than two hundred miners are mining copper and iron."
"With such a small number of miners, they can only dig a few small mines simultaneously, so the output of iron ingots is pitifully slow.
After selling it to you once, all the miners ran out of stock, and they dug so hard that they wouldn't be able to get much in a short time.
The Queen's face relaxed a little at his words.
Indeed, what is the use of two hundred miners Their productivity is slow.
They had already emptied their old capital in her last purchase, so there was no need to worry about Westwind Town providing weapons and equipment to Mondra in this short time.
Robb smiled and said, "Sister Queen, don't always cry about poverty in front of me.
Instead of thinking about how to save money and reduce expenditure, it is better to think about how to make money openly.
Money is not saved.
The Queen squinted, "you have a lot of money-making ideas.
I’m not as good as you."
Robb said, "Let me tell you, you are always shopping in Westwind Town.
Have you ever thought of dumping something on me The townspeople here are very rich.
They have a lot of money.
Don't you want to come and earn their money "
The Queen continued to squint, "what are you trying to say"
Robb said, "well, to put it bluntly, I am short of meat.
Although I have 10 000 ways to increase meat production, the sudden surge in population makes it too hard for me to do.
It takes four months for a pig to gain weight.
So…I will take all your cattle, pigs, and chickens and buy them at the standard market price without pressing you for a single increase.
If you dump a lot of them, you will be able to offset your expenses.
The Queen's eyes lit up when she heard this!
She already knew about the lack of meat in Westwind Town.
Thousands of people lived on Robb's potatoes.
Although some cat folk catch fish and some hunters go up the mountain to get some game, the fish in the river and the game on the mountain are limited.
They aren’t enough to feed 10,000 people.
The Queen knew about these things, but she did not organize a caravan to dump it on Westwind Town on a large scale because she always thought that Robb was a guy who only ate and did not vomit.
She was worried that organizing a caravan to earn money in Westwind Town would force Robb to fall out with her.
If he builds the Westwind Kingdom and conspires with the Desert Kingdom, it will be a really big deal.
Unexpectedly, Robb not only eats but also vomits.
"Will you really take it" The Queen said strangely, "Don't say that I’m hoarding.
As soon as I deliver them, you will have an excuse to send troops to attack me and say that I want to cheat you out of your money and join hands with the Desert Kingdom to attack me."
“Huh I can do such a thing” Robb was happy, "you provided me with a very good idea."
Robb said with a smile, "I'm just kidding you.
I won't do that! How can you be so defensive, you damn woman Do I look like the kind of person who likes to make excuses to fight If I really liked war, I would have destroyed the desert kingdom by now."
"Can you really do that" The Queen was overjoyed, "how much money can make you help me kill Mondra and recover East Gran I will also pay for iron."
“Hey!” Robb said, "if I really destroy Mondra and recapture East Gran on my own, you will regard me as a super monster and worry that I will come and destroy you and occupy your kingdom of Gran.
You will become a white-haired witch out of stress.
You won't eat well, sleep soundly, and have gray hair all day long.
At this point, Robb's eyes lit up, "Huh I just realized that a white-haired witch is kinda interesting.
I really want to try seeing one."
"But if I think about it, it’s a pain.
You'd better try to deal with Mondra yourself." Robb said, "it's a deal then.
Let your merchants ship pigs, cattle, sheep, and chickens one by one.
The population of Westwind Town is not yet 10 000.
As the Queen of a country, you should know how much meat this population needs.
How much meat you should sell is up to you.
You can buy them in large quantities at low prices from the common people and then dump them to me at standard prices.
This is a great opportunity for your treasury to generate income."
"Let's do like that, then." The Queen is secretly pleased.
This is indeed a good way to generate income.
The meat products consumed by nearly 10,000 people are quite a large sum of money.
If the royal merchants turn their hands, they will be able to feed 20% or even 30% of it, expanding the national treasury to a certain extent.
It can at least offset the increase in the price of weapons given by Robb.
Robb's face suddenly showed the evil expression of the wolf coaxing Little Red Riding Hood, "by the way, there is also a kind of no-capital deal.
Do you want to make a profit"
"No capital" As soon as the Queen heard this, she felt something was wrong and immediately understood it as stealing or robbing.
"I am of the royal family," she said.
“I won’t do such a thing.”
"You got it wrong." Robb said with a smile, "when I said no capital.
I meant selling knowledge.
The people of Westwind Town are rich, and even if they are not rich now, I will make them rich in the future.
So they have a lot of spare money on their hands.
Don't you want to exchange your knowledge for their money "
"Oh" The Queen was a little interested, "how much is knowledge"
Robb said with a smile, "you see.
I can build something called a 'technical school' and set up several subjects.
In the first batch, I will offer forging, cooking, tailoring, and so on so that people can pay for these subjects.
Unfortunately, I lack quality old blacksmiths, cooks, and tailors to be teachers."
The Queen knew at once, "you are targeting my royal blacksmith, royal cook, and royal tailor."
“Hehehe.” Robb said with a smile, "Don't rush to refuse.
Let me explain it to you.
A royal blacksmith will teach five classes of people to learn forging skills.
Each class has forty students, and five classes are two hundred students.
Each person is charged a tuition fee of ten silver coins a month.
For knowledge, it is a reasonable price.
In this way, your royal blacksmith will receive a fee of twenty gold coins a month.
If you think about it, don’t you think it’s a lot of money”
The Queen calculated in her mind and stayed on the spot.
