The Northern Domain was vast and boundless, and its entire area was several times larger than the Southern Domain.
However, because the Northern Region was too cold, more than a fifth of the continent was located in the northernmost cold region. As a result, there were very few people. In terms of prosperity, it was far from being comparable to the Southern Region.
The four of them passed through the Nine Heavens official teleportation array and directly arrived at the steel continent in the northern region.
The Iron and Steel Continent was a very famous continent in the Northern Region. This place was rich in all kinds of precious metals, and it was simply an endless treasure trove.
Although the average standard of living in the entire Northern Region was far inferior to that in the Southern Region, the polarization between the rich and the poor in the Northern Region was exceptionally serious.
In terms of this steel continent, this continent alone was much richer than the seven or eight continents of the Southern Domain combined!
They're too rich! The merchants here exported an average of 1% of the precious metals to other continents every year, including the five major regions of the Central Plains!
What kind of concept was this?
Together, the five regions only numbered two to three thousand continents, but one steel continent could account for one percent of the total! Its metal exports are an unfathomable astronomical figure.
When Xiang Nan and the others stepped onto the boundary of the Iron and Steel Continent, the four of them were all dumbfounded.
I've never seen a continent or a country that would use metal so luxuriously!
Looking around, this port city was filled with steel buildings that pierced through the clouds!
Because the buildings on the steel continent were mixed with a large amount of precious metals, the metals that were used to forge weapons were mixed into the building materials and built into buildings.
The scene in front of them was simply incomprehensible to Xiang Nan and the others.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Right in front of them, on the harbor, a 50-meter-tall metal puppet man was carrying five large containers as he rumbled past the crowd.
"Is that … a puppet?" Xiao Jun rubbed his eyes hard.
The metal puppet man's entire body was made of pure metal, and his entire body was glittering with the faint light of profound dao formations. Small diagrams were scattered all over the metal puppet man's body.
The puppet man didn't have a head, and there was a man holding a low-grade spirit stone. This man used the power of spirit stones to drive the puppet metal man to complete all kinds of movements.
Moreover, there were hundreds of metallic people with such complicated structures in a single harbor!
"Heavens! Don't they want money for the precious metals here? Our metals are all used to forge weapons, but they don't think they're enough, yet they're used as tools!" Yuan Meng also felt amazed.
Looking at the tall buildings in the distance, the steel tall buildings were not rough, their surface was painted, and some of them were even stuck with beautiful colored crystals.
At a glance, the endless Cloud Piercing Tower was colorful and magnificent, just like a gem under the sky.
"I suddenly feel like a bumpkin." Xiao Jun was greatly frustrated. He said, "Originally, I thought that Haojing was the most prosperous city in the world, but only when I came here did I know that I am a frog in a well."
The four of them left the harbor and walked towards the interior of the city.
The streets were filled with demonic beasts! Large demonic beasts more than ten meters long were pulling incomparably luxurious carriages around.
The wheels of those carriages were inlaid with golden threads! Sometimes, two carriages collided, knocking a large amount of gold off the carriage. Even the owner of the carriage was too lazy to pick it up and gave it to pedestrians cheaply.
"So rich." Xiang Nan smiled and said, "Everyone here is rich."
'"You know, demonic beasts are easy to catch, but it's very difficult to tame them into mounts. People from the Iron and Steel Continent buy demonic beasts in large quantities from other continents to use as mounts. It's really extravagant to the extreme."
"Holy shit! Look over there, look over there!" Xiao Jun's eyes flickered with small stars as he pointed at a colossus on the street in front of him. "That puppet is holding a knife in his hand!"
Xiang Nan and the others hurriedly looked over, as expected!
A ten-meter-tall metal puppet was actually walking down the street with a ten-meter-tall saber in its hand.
On the puppet's shoulder sat a young martial artist. The martial artist was holding spirit stones in his hand, driving the puppet forward.
On the one hand, the puppet could be used as his driver, and on the other hand, the puppet was clearly capable of fighting.
Xiang Nan had seen quite a few combat puppets, and even those who knew a bit about the profound dao could handle a few of them.
However, puppets that were so large and made of all metal were very rare. The reason for that was because the materials of the metal puppets were obviously the main ore for the creation of elementary Earth Weapons!
However, metal puppets that were so inconceivable and priceless were not common in this place. Xiang Nan and the others had only seen three of them after walking a few streets.
It was a bit too extravagant for the people here to use the main ingredients of a beginner Earth Soldier to forge a ten-meter-long battle puppet.
"Am I even him? I don't want to leave anymore." Xiao Jun scratched his head and said, "This place is so fertile. I really want to live here for the rest of my life."
Xiang Nan shook his head with a smile and said, "Let's go. No matter how prosperous it is, it's not our home."
Yuan Meng patted Xiang Nan's shoulder and said, "In the Iron and Steel Continent, the few of us are going to separate. Xiao Jun and I are going to the continent further north to search for something. We will accompany you here for two more days."
"Yes, it's rare to meet." Xiang Nan nodded.
"Who is the person you are looking for?" Xiao Jun hurriedly asked.
Xiang Nan said, "I heard that he is an expert called Old Man Tian Ji. I don't know which sect's elder he is. Find a place to inquire about him."
The four of them found an inn to stay in.
This inn was golden and resplendent. The several large pillars in the hall on the first floor were all covered in gold. There were dragon-flying and phoenix-dancing patterns carved on them.
Even the tables, chairs, and stools were made of pure silver, covered with furry demonic beast fur. It was very comfortable and comfortable to sit on.
Xiang Nan snapped his fingers twice and called for the waiter.
After the four of them ordered some food and drinks, Xiang Nan casually asked the waiter, "Excuse me, have you heard of Old Man Tian Ji?"
"Yes, of course." The waiter smiled.
Xiang Nan suddenly became spirited. He only asked casually. He didn't expect that the waiter had actually heard of it!
"You know Old Man Tian Ji?" Xiang Nan hurriedly asked.
The waiter smiled and said, "Of course I know. I'm afraid there aren't many people in our steel continent who don't know about Old Man Tian Ji."
"However, everyone only knows him, but they don't know him."
"Old Man Tian Ji's temper is very strange. It is said that he was once an elder of a first-class sect, but after falling out with that sect, he left the sect."
"This person waved his gold like dirt, as if he had endless wealth. He had visited almost every entertainment venue on the steel continent."
"Have you seen our inn?" The waiter pointed at the magnificent inn and said, "Old Man Tian Ji sometimes comes to visit the sea. He will stay with us for a few days, and he is also a senior member of our inn."
Xiang Nan smiled. He really had no place to find after stepping through the iron shoes.
"Old Man Tian Ji, are you here now?" Xiang Nan asked.
The waiter shook his head, "You're late. Three months ago, we held a tide-watching party in this city. Old Man Tian Ji came to play for more than half a month, and then he left."
"What a strange personality." Xiao Junqi said, "The elders of other sects are all mature and steady, but this Tian Ji old man is like a child, he likes to play very much."
As he spoke, Xiao Jun suddenly grabbed Xiang Nan's shoulder. He stared at the entrance of the inn and said in a trembling voice, "Xiang Nan, I'm in love!"
Immediately after, Xiao Jun disappeared.
Xiang Nan hurriedly looked towards the entrance of the inn and saw Xiao Jun leaning against the door frame and flirting with a beautiful girl with a smile.
"Beautiful girl, can you have a drink with me and enjoy the beautiful moonlight together?"
"The so-called 'Flower and Full Moon Man' is affectionate. If you and I miss out on it, wouldn't we have let down the beauty of that month's old man?" "Flower and Full Moon Man is affectionate."
The girl looked at Xiao Jun in surprise and asked curiously, "I'm a man …"
The corner of Xiao Jun's mouth twitched fiercely and he said, "Goodbye."
