Chapter 129, Nobility

Translator: 549690339

Austria's colonial strategy had not just begun; for several years now, the Vienna Government had already been funding expeditions to explore the African Continent.

Setting aside the inland areas, at least there was a basic understanding of the coastal regions, so starting action now would not be completely blind.

Not only regarding the African Continent, but the Austrian Government had also gathered intelligence on many regions of the world, with some of it collected by their own people and some bought from middlemen.

In this era, exploration was also a business, with many civilian exploration teams selling the intelligence they gathered to the colonial government for a generous reward.

Selling it once was a sale, selling it twice was naturally also a sale. As long as the price was right, everything was negotiable. Adventuring at the risk of one's life, naturally, one would want to be sufficiently compensated.
