Chapter 1782: What Was He Blindly Saying Some Big Truth for
Of course, even if they’d formed an alliance, it was inevitable for them to scheme against each other.
Hence, the gatekeeper did not stop Han Zhuoling and Shi Xiaoya from going in together.
After going in, they saw that there were two doors on each of the three walls, so there were six doors in total.
At this time, a beam of light shone on the stone platform in the middle, and a figure wearing a black robe with his face hidden by a hat appeared in the beam of light.
“Welcome, adventurers.” The man in the black robe’s voice rang out.
It was obvious that his voice had been altered to sound robotic, echoey, and hoarse. “Welcome to the Gate to Earth. Here, there are a total of six doors, but only one door is the right exit. Only when you’ve found the right exit can you find your way to the ancient castle. Elsewise, you will be trapped here forever. Forever and ever.”
They knew it was fake and was only arranged by the production team, but in such an environment, they would still feel a little nervous.
“Then now, you two have an hour to save yourselves,” the man in the black robe said. “Good luck to you, Adventurers.”
The man in the black robe disappeared together with the beam of light. Shi Xiaoya turned to Han Zhuoling and said, “What should we do next? I’ll do as you say.”
“Let me see first,” Han Zhuoling said.
The light in the room was enough to allow people to see, but not to the extent of being bright. Han Zhuoling used the torchlight to shine around the surroundings carefully. After making sure that there would not be any scary things, he then said, “Let’s look around first. Don’t let go of any clues. Who knows, it might just be something we can use.”
“Okay.” Shi Xiaoya glanced around and went to a table nearby.
Placed on the table were the Four Treasures of the Study, namely a calligraphy brush, paper, ink, and ink slab, the essentials of calligraphy and scholarship.
There were some words on the paper. Shi Xiaoya could not guess what clues there were in the words, but she felt that it was useful, so she took it.
She found a seal in the drawer and took it as well.
Han Zhuoling checked every door once. In between each door, he used his feet to measure the distance between each door.
“I only found these.” Shi Xiaoya passed the things she’d found to Han Zhuoling.
“It shouldn’t be too hard. There are other guests around, and they can’t possibly disqualify everyone,” Han Zhuoling said.
What was he blindly saying some big truth for?
“It’s this door,” Han Zhuoling said.
“How can you be sure that that’s it?” the director could not help but ask.
“Every door has the same kind of pattern, and every door’s pattern is in the same position. Only this door’s pattern is slightly off.” Han Zhuoling raised his eyebrow. “When your production team is setting up the props, did you specifically ask to make one of the doors slightly different so that it would be easy for the production team to differentiate?”
Actually, when they were setting up this level, they even looked up the Five Elements and Eight Trigrams, as well as used various mathematical formulas to calculate.
But to make it easier for the staff in the production team to recognize the door and not remember the wrong one then press the wrong door, they then deliberately hid a little part that was a bit different there.
But the right answer they left for the guests was definitely not because the patterns on the door did not match!
In the first episode, Han Zhuoling had freely come up with all sorts of mathematical formulas to calculate.
Who knew that this time, he was not going to play the smart student role and would just find this most simple and uncultured point.
“Could the clue be in the words written on this paper?” Shi Xiaoya passed the clues she had just found to Han Zhuoling.
“This is an ancient mathematical calculation method. At that time, the Arabic numerals and Western calculation formulas had yet to be passed along here, so we had our own set of methods for calculating during the ancient times,” Han Zhuoling explained.
