Travel To A Primitive World To Build Infrastructure - Chapter 9
Ordinary people do not have the advantage when facing fierce beasts, but they can still compete for such activities.
After talking, Rong thought about the question she raised before. “But our residence will be a big problem. The present weather is not bad. If the cold season comes, it may be difficult to survive. We can’t learn to dig holes like rabbits.”
“We can build the house, but I still have to think about how to build it. The air here is humid. The amount of rain should not be small. Near the Black Forest, the groundwater resources should be more abundant. We can try to drill wells. ”
“Is there water under the ground?”
Everyone was familiar with these words and expressions.
“The chances of success are great, but it takes some time. We can try it first. If we drill successfully, we move. ”
Yang Yi thought that drilling wells should be able to effluent, but he didn’t know how deep to dig.
Everyone’s eyes lit up.
“If we can solve the water problem, then we can choose a safer place. It’s not necessarily have to be here!”
The most important thing to survive was the water source. All tribes were built near a water source.
If there was something like a ‘well’, then many problems could be solved and there would be more places to choose from.
“We have shovels now. It is very simple to dig. We will go dig a well tomorrow!” Jiao was very excited.
Everyone agreed. Finding a safe place as soon as possible was one of the most urgent tasks at present.
With one question solved, Yang Yi started the second topic of the meeting:
“We have to count the number of people here. We have a lot of things to do in the future so that we need to arrange the staff reasonably. I hope everyone can register with me.”
The registration of households and establishments were very important, which made him understand the group more quickly and then more rationally carry out the division of labor and cooperation. It gave him a better chance of managing or driving these people.
Jiao and his party had no objection to this. Although it had been a dark night, it was still early and their number was not large. This work did not need to be dragged to the next day.
The registration included name, age, whether talent was awakened, what was special, hobbies, and family relationships. These are beneficial in grasping everybody’s situation. If there were changes, he could make arrangements at any time.
The people here basically did not form a marriage system, although some men and women like Rong and Jing may choose to live together.
But most of them favored the form of the Mosuo marriage, which was about to transition from the maternal clan to the paternal clan.
Yang Yi registered the people around him. Everyone who saw their names was very excited. They even let Yang Yi tear off a small piece of paper with their own name.
Yang Yi took out the convenience sign. He then wrote their names and the number of each person, which others could also get.
Keeping their number in mind, it would also be convenient to check files in the future.
Yang Yi believed that there would be more and more people in the future.
Except for the wounded who were still unable to move, everyone came to register. The wounded were explained by Jiao.
Jiao was very familiar with everyone. She even added some details which other people forgot, making Yang Yi understand them better.
Yang Yi became more and more familiar with them and was slowly integrating into this group. The feeling of being excluded gradually weakened.
The census work ended with a total of 118 people.
Among them, there were 7 children aged 1-5. They could stay, and they were likely to have talents for being soldiers.
What surprised Yang Yi was that Mao was already six years old and he was thinner than his peers.
Warrior talents generally woke up at around 8 years old. The higher the talent was, the earlier the time of awakening. Even if the talents didn’t wake up, others could guess it from physical fitness. The accuracy was generally high.
There were about 38 children who could start to help with simple work, and 28 people who were old, disabled, or had difficulty working hard.
Among them, many disabled people were first-class fighters. Most of them lacked arms and legs, which greatly affected combat power. But because of their sturdy physique, they could drag the injured body here.
There were 37 young and healthy non-warriors and 8 warriors.
The overall male to female ratio was basically 1:1, but there was only one female warrior.
This was because the female warrior was not only a powerful combat force, but also a source of strong kids. The Blackrock tribe was not willing to let it go.
Rong was strong enough and her willpower was firm, so she could leave.
Although some soldiers were lost amid the way, the number was small because the base was small.
Most sound warriors were reluctant to leave the Blackrock tribe, which was tantamount to being abandoned. When leaving, they couldn’t take their weapons, fur, and other items.
Fighters without strong weapons would also have weakened combat power.
Many people believed that this group of people would eventually perish.
The disability rate of this team was not low, but Yang Yi did not think they were cumbersome. They could still do a lot of things. It was just not easy to go hunting in the wild.
118 people. Much fewer than a population of one million…
Forget the terrible data. It was the most important task at present to work hard and live safely.
“I think we should have a tribe name,” Yang Yi proposed.
A team with a name, with a common logo, would have a centripetal force.
Jiao and others were stunned. The name of the tribe?
They had always felt that they were abandoned people. Although they were staying here, this thought remained.
Therefore, they did not feel that this group of people was a tribe. They also did not think about giving it a name.
“We are a new tribe,” Coke excitedly cried.
The eyes of the others were also slightly flashing. The feeling of being abandoned by the tribe was not good. It seemed that the future could not be seen.
But now, they were no longer floating souls. They were a tribe!
They had their own tribe members, partners who could rely on each other and a home of the soul.
“You must decide this.” Jiao was serious, and the others agreed.
It was Yang Yi who gave them hope and a chance to live.
Yang Yi paused. After a moment of contemplation, he said, “How about calling it Spark?”
“The place I came from, a very powerful person said something. ‘A single spark can start a prairie fire.’” Yang Yiw looked to the vast sky with a little variety of stars.
“We are the spark. Everyone looks very weak, but we can ignite the entire wasteland.”
