Goat told Fang Linyan that his profession was a salesman, and his talent was very peculiar. It was called Sincerity. It could increase the favorability of any creature (except human females) by an additional 25%, and the highest attribute was charm.
When entering the world, Goat also encountered an incident. A Reaper-M was chasing 3 wanderers in the wilderness. 2 wanderers were killed, and another wanderer was battling against the Reaper-M.
Goat stepped forward to help and killed the Reaper, gaining the trust of the seriously injured wanderer.
Then, the wanderer happened to have a relative in the shooting range. Goat relied on the salesman’s eloquence and talent to succeed in getting a job there.
Goat was also an attentive person. After checking Gun Lover’s requirements, he began to pay special attention to those who tested different firearms frequently and deliberately sought to hit the bullseye, and he really got something.
In this case, Goat was able to join a temporary team.
This team was very loose. The leader of the team was called Mad Dog. He was arrogant and domineering. It was said that he spent a few years in the army and later became the captain of the security company. His marksmanship was good and his way of doing work was fair.
Mad Dog seemed to have a talent for finding people, and he also had a person with strong management abilities called Axia, so the team members had grown rapidly.
What was more surprising was that after Mad Dog entered this world, it seemed that he was born with the identity of a powerful local gang leader. Therefore, he gathered his own core members who consisted mainly of local people and the contestants were secondary forces.
After the core members were full, Mad Dog continued to recruit people to expand his power. In order to avoid too many people gathering together and cause too much attention, he divided his people into 3 halls.
Mad Dog was usually in charge of the most powerful hall, then he appointed 2 powerful contestants as the bosses of the other 2 halls. As such, he divided his power into 3, and they usually wouldn’t gather together, so they didn’t attract the attention of the authority.
Goat who wasn’t attached to importance was of course marginalized. He was assigned to the second hall. His daily task was to set aside 2 hours to monitor the people on the shooting range and take them in.
However, just yesterday evening, Mad Dog seemed to have inquired about something, so he called a meeting of core members which also included the elites of the other 2 halls.
As a result, when a group of people gathered together to plot, they were suddenly raided by the Iron Fist Brotherhood! There were heavy casualties, and the core team members also all died.
People like Goat who weren’t valued because they didn’t have the right to go to the meeting survived instead.
After hearing this, Fang Linyan’s heart suddenly moved,
“Is your team’s headquarters near a leather warehouse?”
Goat said in surprise,
“Ah? You know this too!”
Fang Linyan shrugged and said,
“Yesterday, I heard that there was a serious incident in a leather warehouse. Many people died, so I think it should be related to this.”
Goat nodded and said,
“Yes, Mad Dog’s headquarters were in the leather warehouse.”
After Fang Linyan knew this information, he almost knew the purpose of Goat.
Goat’s team had just been annihilated yesterday. Under normal circumstances, he should stay low as a frightened rookie. However, he still dared to look for him. Then, Fang Linyan must have something he wants!
Goat who was marginalized very seriously shouldn’t get any good task. He was responsible for monitoring the shooting range, then associating to his own behavior in the shooting range…
Fang Linyan easily predicted that Goat must be eyeing the bronze badge he used to cut the queue! This thing was the lowest level badge in the Iron Fist Brotherhood, but it also represented the approval of the Iron Fist Brotherhood.
Goat wanted to use this thing to deal with the Iron Fist Brotherhood. As for what he wanted to do, it was nothing more than exchanging items.
Therefore, after knowing the other party’s needs and intentions, Fang Linyan would have the upper hand in the following conversation.
Although Goat talked about the benefits of joining the team, and he said that he had now found a few strong friends with like-minded people to form a team again. This time, only an elite team of 5-6 people would be formed. It would definitely not avoid attention from the official. They could even finish the main mission easily.
Fang Linyan just smiled and didn’t accept the deal. He became the mute customer whom the salesman was most afraid of.
In the end, Goat finally succumbed to Fang Linyan and said with a sad face,
“Brother, okay, okay, just mention it if you have any conditions! This main mission has a time limit, why aren’t you in a hurry!”
“Okay, okay, as long as you come to me, I will give you the benefits that belong to me, okay?”
Fang Linyan originally just wanted to lure him because people wouldn’t cherish things that were too easy to get right!? Hearing this, Goat really intended to give him some benefits as he said excitedly.
“When we first entered, weren’t there a lot of milestone prompts?”
Fang Linyan said,
“Among these milestones, do you know which is the hardest one?”
Fang Linyan thought for a while and said,
“Is that OMG You’re so High? It is required to destroy the part below the second steel vertebrae and take a photo with then Purger when the CPU chip of Purger is still working normally?”
Goat shook his head and said,
“No, although this milestone is very dangerous and difficult, it is still possible to complete.”
“The most difficult mission is the time-limited mission: Time is My Friend and Money! It requires us to obtain 2000 new common points within 6 hours after entering the world. Please note that it must be newly obtained! People haven’t even figured out what is happening in 6 hours, how can they possibly get 2000 common points?”
Fang Linyan pondered,
“Your words seem reasonable, so what do you want to express?”
Goat looked around for a moment, then he moved up to Fang Linyan and whispered,
“After completing this milestone, you will get a very rare title called Black Market! After equiping this title, you will be able to find a mysterious merchant in the night and buy good things from him!”
After Fang Linyan heard this, his heart was suddenly moved because the details that Goat said was basically consistent with what he knew, so he immediately questioned it very cooperatively,
“What do you mean?”
“In the team we are going to form, we have a person who happened to complete this milestone! So, she can find the location of the mysterious merchant, and she can also take 3 people to the mysterious merchant!”
“3 of the 3 people’s quota is mine, but I am very poor now, and I am also interested in one of the things that can be exchanged in the Iron Fist Brotherhood, so I probably can’t buy anything from there.”
Having said that, he took a serious look at Fang Linyan,
“So… as long as you are willing to join our team, I will give my slot to you!”
Hearing Goat’s words, Fang Linyan was really moved. First, he knew Goat was most likely telling the truth. He didn’t bluff about the details that Fang Linyan knew too. Second, he really had some common points on him, so he could buy from the mysterious merchant!
If a deal could be reached, he could save the title of Black Market with other people leading him. If this thing can be used outside this world, wouldn’t it be a big profit?
As he was about to agree, he suddenly remembered something and said,
“Since this is the case, I really can’t reject you. If you promise me one more thing, I will join!”
Fortunately, Goat was a salesman before. He was used to seeing insatiable faces like Fang Linyan’s. If it was another person, he would sneer and leave. He could only say in embarrassment,
Fang Linyan smiled slightly, patted his shoulder and said,
“Don’t worry, I will not take advantage of you! I will give you a message. As far as I know, there are additional rewards for completing the main mission: the Symbol of Steel Fist. The faster you complete it, the higher the reward.”
After hearing this, Goat said in surprise,
Fang Linyan said,
“I don’t know, won’t you know if you finish it? And my reward to you is to let you complete the mission before me. In this way, the extra rewards you get will be even better!”
Goat was also quite moved when he heard it.
Fang Linyan continued,
“My following request isn’t asking for a high price. It’s just that I was separated from my friend after I came in. Now I am very worried about his safety, so I want you to tell me about the situation of the contestants gathered around Mad Dog. It doesn’t need to be detailed. Just tell me their approximate height, weapons and other information. I am a little worried that he has been killed.”
After listening to Fang Linyan’s words, Goat also felt reasonable and nodded,
“In this case, I don’t think it is a problem.”
He as a salesman had a good connection among people, so he briefly introduced the people around Mad Dog, saying that these guys had experience in using guns in their real world before. Therefore, in this world where guns were allowed, they were doing very well…
In fact, Fang Linyan had exposed a flaw here – because it stood to reason that Fang Linyan should take the initiative to tell the information of his friends if he asks acquaintances, then Goat would think about whether there is such a person. No one would ask like Fang Linyan did.
However, Goat might not have noticed it or he noticed it but he didn’t expose him. He just introduced one by one.
After Fang Linyan listened, he secretly noted all this information in his mind.
TL: Free ticket to black market, why not? Can these team members be trusted though?
