Book 7: Chapter 150: Magicians Peace Convention
The release of technology other than the household magic machines was only the Frestech Chamber of Commerces first major move after the New Years.
On April 1st, it was a bit special in another world, but it was a peaceful and normal day on the Sines Continent. The Magicians Guild and the Magicians Survival Job Security Union, the two largest magician organizations on the continent came together with the Candra Empire, the Marlow Empire, the Lampuri Kingdom, the Mana Magic Kingdom, the Rudson Kingdom, the Nozdormu Business Union Kingdom, for a total of eighty three other countries to make a public announcement.
The two magician organizations and over four fifths of all the countries on the continent signed a «Magicians Peace Convention», which created a new rule on the magicians of the continent.
The main text of this strange sounding «Magicians Peace Convention» was long, but what truly caught everyones attention was one line.
From the day this convention was signed, all magicians that were registered with the two great magician organizations would no longer be able to enter wars. The offenders would be removed from the records of the two magicians organizations and would be declared a public enemy of all magicians on the continent.
There was no need to mention the Magicians Guild, but the Magicians Survival Job Security Union through the support of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce had already developed into a powerful organization that wasnt weaker, and was even stronger than the Magicians Guild.
If the two large magicians organizations wanted to restrain the magicians of the continent at the same time, the rule that they came up with would be an ironclad rule for most magicians.
In other words, starting today, if the magicians of the continent wanted to remain on the continent, they would no longer be able to enter the battlefield anymore.
At the same time, the eighty three countries, including the two empires stated that they would no longer be recruiting magicians into their armies and wouldnt let any magicians directly enter the battlefield.
This meant that even if some magicians went against the rules of the two large magician organizations, wanting to join the battlefield, there would be no coutnrys army that would recruit them, making their efforts useless.
It had to be said, this «Magicians Peace Convention» was simply breaking the traditions of the Sines Continent.
When humans grasped magic three thousand years ago, the human magicians realized their value on the battlefield.
Whether it was the race wars three thousand years ago, or the fights between humans and other races later, or later when human countries fought against each other after taking control of the continent, magicians could be considered the leads and darlings of the battlefield.
In everyones mind, the magicians that had powerful and destructive spells could only show their value on the battlefield.
The reason why magicians were respected and even worshipped was because Arch Magi had the power to determine battle by themselves.
This concept had lasted three thousand years in the human society of the Sines Continent, it was already deeply ingrained in everyones minds.
Now the two large magician organizations and all the countries on the continent were telling everyone that magicians couldnt enter the battlefield anymore
What a joke!
If magicians didnt enter the battlefield, how could they display their value
Could it be that magicians could do something other than fighting
These words made sense on the past Sines Continent, but on the current Sines Continent, they didnt make that much sense……
The difference was that the past Sines Continent didnt have the Frestech Chamber of Commerce or the magic machine industry.
After everyone was depressed after hearing this news, they realized an important issue.
Among those that signed this «Magicians Peace Convention», other than the two great magician organizations, all the countries including the two empires, there was another name that was different because it was the name of a company.
This company was naturally the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
Everyone that seriously read the «Magicians Peace Convention» would notice that the Frestech Chamber of Commerces name had appeared many times in the convention. It even explicitly stated that this «Magicians Peace Convention» was suggested by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce.
It was because of the Frestech Chamber of Commerce that the two great magician organizations and the eighty three countries including the two empires came to an agreement.
There was no need to guess, everyone understood that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce put all this effort into passing this convention for their own benefits.
But what benefits would this convention bring to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce
One could easily understand as long as they werent a fool.
Because of the restrictions of this convention, magicians could no longer go to war and cant receive the special treatments from joining the armies of the two empires.
Then what would the over a hundred thousand magicians of the continent do
They couldnt just go to the various companies to be guards, right
At this time, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce would provide another outlet for these magicians. They could enter the magic machine industry and study magic machines.
In the past twenty years, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce used facts to prove to the magicians that studying in the magic machine industry would mean they could also receive great benefits, showing their value.
In the war last year where the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and the several countries on their side defeated the two empires, the Frestech Chamber of Commerces military magic machines could even kill Arch Magi. They had even made all magicians, including Arch Magi lose their use.
According to the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, the ones that developed these powerful military magic machines were the researchers of the magic research facility. There was only a single Great Magician among these researchers and the rest were all High Grade Magicians.
Just with the strength of a Great Magician and normal magicians, they could kill Arch Magi. This had never happened before in the history of the Sines Continent.
So after this war, the magicians of the Frestech Chamber of Commerces magic research facility became gods among the other magicians of the continent.
Even if they ignored the fame, according to the data that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce released, these researchers would earn a fix income of over fifty gold coins a month and they could even earn over two thousand gold coins a year!
Not to mention that the Great Magicians the Frestech Chamber of Commerce hired several years ago were already making over ten thousand gold coins a year!
This kind of income would be in the top bracket on the entire Sines Continent.
Compared to working for the armies of the countries or guarding other companies, the rewards for working for the Frestech Chamber of Commerce were much greater.
The most important thing was that you didnt have to risk your life with this work……
So when the news was spread by the various newspapers or the news report on the Magic Illusion Projectors, everyone found that the appearance of this «Magicians Peace Convention» wasnt making the magicians lose their value. Rather it was something that opened a brand new world for them.
After the things the Frestech Chamber of Commerce released developed for a while, they had always been fiercely disputed by the magician circle.
Some magicians thought of themselves as aloof magicians. They should demonstrate their destructive might in battles and show that they were above normal people.
Some magicians were more practical and felt that as long as they could earn money, there wasnt much else to consider.
Before this «Magicians Peace Convention» came out, the faction that supported magicians entering wars was bigger because this was a tradition that had lasted for several thousand years.
But after this «Magicians Peace Convention» came out, the practical magicians faction tok over and crushed the militant faction.
In the end, this was also because the Frestech Chamber of Commerce demonstrated an unparalleled might in the war last year, making the two empires unable to fight back and had to ask for peace.
On the current Sines Continent, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce represented absolute power.
Since this matter was led by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce and was approved by the two great magician organizations and most of the countries including the two empires, even supported by the well known Arch Magi of the continent, the normal magicians didnt have anything else to say.
Not to mention that after this was announced, the two empires also announced a series of statements that they would be fully developing their internal magic machine industries. They would fully support the development of the magic machine industry in their borders and would be working with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, striving to popularize the magic machine industry internally as soon as possible.
To achieve this, the two empires were working with the Frestech Chamber of Commerce to found new magician schools. They would teach magicians about how to work in the magic machine industry, with the purpose of letting those magicians who werent familiar with the magic machine industry quickly gain the skills that they needed, allowing them to better enter the magic machine industry.
The two empires were even willing to give benefits to the magicians who joined the magic machine industry. For example, your school fees would be exempt when studying at the new school, your taxes would be reduced when you worked in the magic machine industry, you could even receive a special citizen status if you received a Magic Mechanical Engineer qualification issued by the Frestech Chamber of Commerce, and more……
In short, it could be described in one phrase.
Are you a magician Quickly join the magic machine industry!-
