Chapter 1162: Defense War
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Outside the universe is the Great Cosmological Abyss!”
Fang Yuan sat cross-legged, quietly comprehending the mysteries of the Great Cosmological Abyss.
In fact, the so-called Great Cosmological Abyss was a void with nothingness, no light, no energy, nothing at all.
Without achieving Dao Fruit, or possessing an astonishing trump card, if you entered it, you would inevitably become gradually exhausted and fall into a hopeless situation.
“If I want to send these cannon fodder to explore the Huaxia Universe, they must have at least Mental Demon Demon God strength, and they also must rely on tools…” In this aspect, the accumulation of the Creator Space up until now was still insufficient.
He was slightly regretting that he had not taken down that ark civilization to study it.
“However, Planet Stael can’t research it purely due to technological issues. In contrast, the progress of Uyguklais has been constantly accelerating. It’s just that with the resources of my current domain, it’s totally impossible to construct an ark for the Great Cosmological Abyss. I need to expand my forces. Oh, Omar’s original territory is very good!”
Ever since he had sealed Omar, all the planets that it had influence or control over erupted in war or rebellion.
Not only had the surrounding forces gotten involved, but the Uyguklais were also advancing by leaps and bounds, and they had occupied many resource-rich planets in strong support of Fang Yuan’s wild plan.
“If I want to plunder more resources, I’m bound to become enemies with the Elder Gods and the Outer Gods… But this might not be necessarily certain either. Most Dao Ancestors have peculiar temperaments, and they might not care about their territory at all…”
From White Light, Fang Yuan had obtained a lot of information about the Outer Gods.
He discovered that there were many monomaniacs and lunatics among the Outer Gods who loved arousing the investigative desire of people. They took pleasure in allowing them to destroy themselves as they approached the truth. Even if a few planets perished, they had no qualms at all.
Some planets only picked up their firm belief in some Outer Gods purely because of fear. If an Outer God occupied them, whether or not the corresponding Outer God would do anything solely depended on luck and fate.
Generally speaking, the actions of the Outer Gods were similar to metaphysics and extremely difficult to predict.
“Therefore, even when the Creator Space achieves the Dao, it might not attract the attention of too many Dao Ancestors… To me, this is good news!”
Fang Yuan’s eyes were deep.
Although he currently had the strength of two Dao Fruits, dealing with so many of the Outer Gods and Elder Gods at once was definitely too much.
“Hope they won’t go too far. Otherwise, I’ll have no choice but to release my trump card!”
Fang Yuan looked at the sea solemnly.
Within the Creator Space.
A white light appeared, and Clement’s figure suddenly appeared at the bottom of the beam.
Presently, he looked rather miserable, with his entire body practically soaked in blood.
“Haha… Haha…” However, Clement only felt like laughing out loud. “The initial mission world rumored to have the highest newbie death rate… I’ve gotten past it. From today onward, I am also a chosen one…”
Because this Creator did not restrict the leakage of general knowledge, there was a lot of research done on the Creator Space on Planet Stael, and many youths dreamed about entering the space to become an Extraordinary.
Some of the functions were already things that everybody knew.
“Creator, heal me immediately. Deduct the cost from my rewards!” Clement shouted, and almost instantly, a green beam of light descended.
The injuries on his body recovered swiftly as his complexion regained its ruddiness. He did not have a single scar on his body, and his spirit was feeling better than ever.
“The Creator’s work is indeed exceptional!” Clement complimented. He quickly looked at reward points with one hundred points missing, and his heart started aching incomparably.
“Mission Rewards: During this mission, Chosen One Clement 208 obtained a total of 400 reward points (after deducting the healing cost) and one E-grade medal!”
In front of him was a light screen displaying his personal information:
“Name: Clement Onst
Life Value: 100 (100)
Combat Force Value: 5
“Discovered hidden gift: Touch of Light!”
“I… actually have a hidden gift?”
Clement felt as though the heavens had dropped a huge gift bag on him.
During his scavenger days, he had heard some information at various public places, and he knew that after completing the first mission, the chosen ones would receive a digital scan.
The number 208 did not mean that there were only 208 chosen ones, but that he was the 208th chosen one with the name Clement Onst, meaning that this name was way too common.
Having a combat force value of five was also normal. The average adult on this planet would have such data before strengthening, and they were commonly referred to as the combat five dregs.
But possessing a hidden gift was practically winning the lottery.
According to the highest official authority, the chances of ordinary humans possessing a hidden gift was one in a hundred thousand. Even the number of chosen ones with hidden gifts was extremely few. In the later periods, after fully developing the hidden gift, it was definitely not any inferior to some powerful skills.
Moreover, when choosing to strengthen, certain hidden gifts had special conveniences, or waived some reward points, or exempted some exchange permissions.
“Hope it’s a high-level gift!”
Clement focused on the Touch of Light and immediately obtained its information.
“Touch of Light: You have come into contact with the burning sun and have some remaining extraordinary characteristics. Effect—Under sunlight, Life Force +1!
Assessment: Low-level gift (After all, it was only caused by a coincidental occurrence. You really can’t expect too much. In fact, if the low-level assessment was not already the lowest, it might be even lower.)”
“There it is… the Creator’s poisonous tongue of ridicule…”
Clement’s feeling resembled winning a lottery of five million dollars before seeing it go up in flames seconds later. “A gift that is lower than low-level? Caused by coincidental occurrence? Since when did I come into contact with the sun?”
For some reason, he suddenly thought of the lunatic that he saw before he entered the Creator Space. Didn’t he claim to be the sun?
“Forget it… It’s still better than nothing!”
Clement finally calmed down and looked at the exchange tab on the Creator.
Looking at the long list, Celent almost drooled over every item on it.
Clean water and food, which were extremely rare outside, were commonly sold here using reward points. There were even very expensive luxury goods and enjoyment products that were not even accessible to ordinary residents of the ecological districts.
Of course, using reward points to exchange for ordinary items was the least beneficial to the chosen ones.
Clement looked at the extraordinary section, and his eyes lit up.
“Enchanted Pistol that comes with ten bullets. Cost: 100 reward points!”
“Type 2 Portable Ion Hand Cannon! Cost: 1000 reward points, one E-grade medal!”
“Enchanted Leather Armor! Cost: 500 reward points!”
“This… is simply the largest arsenal. There are even interstellar spaceships, but the price is also astronomical…”
Like a bumpkin, Clement read all sorts of descriptions before eventually looking away reluctantly.
“For a newbie, exchanging reward points for costly equipment is basically seeking death… Regardless of in reality or during the missions, there are always those who specialize in looting such fat sheep. It’s still the safest to be strong yourself because nobody can take that away!”
He looked at the section for strengthening and found that he was also spoilt for choices.
For example, Hetero-planet Bloodline Strengthening could allow someone to obtain tremendous strength by directly injecting the blood of species from other planets. However, maintaining human form was not guaranteed.
Or a special Profession Changing Strengthening that allowed you to change to a different profession and obtain the corresponding special ability. For example, a warrior with expertise in melee, a sharpshooter with expertise in firearms, and so on.
The last type was Extraordinary Enlightenment! It was essentially the way of the Extraordinaries that already existed on this planet.
“Too many! Too many!” Clement was dazzled by the many choices. In the end, he followed the experience of his predecessors. “Creator, please choose the most suitable Extraordinary Strengthening for me!”
“Ding! 10 reward points deducted!”
The Creator did not stand on ceremony and immediately deducted his reward points. The many interfaces cleared away, leaving behind a few choices:
“Blazing Warrior: A mighty warrior who possesses the power of flames. Proficient in using all types of cold weapons to fight and also possesses a few skills involving flames at the beginning. Requirements: 700 reward points, one E-grade medal!”
“Evil Eye Transplant: Transplant an evil eye with extraordinary power onto the chosen one’s forehead. Attain extraordinary vision and some illusion skills. It is also the prerequisite for ten of the strongest eye techniques. Requirements: 1500 reward points, one E-grade medal!”
“Sun Priest: A profession that sings praises to the sun and possesses numerous buffing and exorcism skills! Requirements: 700 reward points, one E-grade medal (Detected that the chosen one possesses the hidden gift Touch of Light! Reward points requirement halved)”
“These are the three most suitable primary strengthening choices for me…”
Clement was slightly hesitant. “I really like Blazing Warrior, but I don’t have enough reward points. As for the second choice… I don’t want to end up as some monster or freak, so that leaves me with only the third one, the Sun Priest!”
He quickly decided, and shortly afterward, a golden radiance descended.
Seconds later, the radiance disappeared. Clement’s eyes blurred, and he suddenly pointed with his finger. “I say… there must be light!”
A golden radiance blossomed from his finger.
“Haha… I’m finally an Extraordinary!”
Clement smiled widely, and when he could no longer bear it, he started laughing heartily.
“After becoming an Extraordinary, I’m now one of the higher-class people of the ecological districts. As long as I accumulate enough travel expenses, I might be able to migrate to the other two continents… A lovely future is waving at me!”
Just as he was fantasizing about his beautiful future, a red warning notice suddenly appeared:
“Chosen One Clement 208, your next mission will be nightmare level! Therefore, here is the advanced announcement of the mission’s content: Planet Stael Defense War! This mission is a real-life mission with unlimited freedom. All rewards will be calculated and issued at the end of the mission!”
“What?” Clement felt like he had fallen into the bottomless abyss again.
What he did not know was that all the chosen ones received the same mission, causing the entire planet to enter a state of uproar.
