Fang Linyan could already confirm that there were no Gai Qiushan’s people in the central square. Otherwise, if Geert shouted in the team channel when he fucked up, the reinforcements would arrive and kill Fang Linyan whether Geert survived or not.
He didn’t rush to open the bloody key as this could be done at any time.
The top priority was to complete the time-limited mission.
Next, Fang Linyan looked at the giant statues in the central square, and he found that the red light lingering on 1 of them had been reduced a lot. This was noticed after comparing the red light on the other statues.
“Someone is ahead of me?”
He walked back into the square quickly, then he came to the tallest statue with the strongest red light. The inscription on the steel plate below was clearly written with ‘This is the first lancer of the Iron Fist Brotherhood, Danser.
In the Iron Fist Brotherhood, the lancer refers to a warrior who fights the enemy with an aircraft.
Danser made outstanding contributions to the establishment of the Iron Fist Brotherhood. He destroyed 11 mechanical creatures, Jailer, dispatched by Tiphon. These flying monsters were once the biggest threat on the battlefield.
In the end, Danser, in order to cover his companions, drove the aircraft into the regional artificial life leader dispatched by Tiphon and died together with it, making a heroic sacrifice.
Probably, everyone had the dream of soaring into the sky, so a lot of people came to worship Danser. Fang Linyan fell on his knees in accordance with local customs, touched his chest with his right hand, bowed his head to worship, and stood up. He walked to the statue and stretched out his hand to press it on the base of the statue.
The moment Fang Linyan’s palm touched the base, the red light on the statue seemed to be absorbed by his palm. Fang Linyan turned dark, then he came to a mysterious space. The space was endless and pitch black. There was only a cluster of red flames burning in front of him.
This flame constantly changed its shape; sometimes it looked like a fist, and sometimes it looked like a heart. The entire space seemed to be moving with the rhythmic contraction of the flame, which seemed very mysterious.
A voice sounded in Fang Linyan’s ear:
“Where you can’t see, the tide of aura has begun to surge. The spirit of this world has begun to awaken.”
“The newborn spirit is very hungry.”
“Why can the title improve your overall attributes? It is because its essence is also composed of a kind of energy, and this energy is full of temptation for the awakened spirit.”
“Here, you can sacrifice the title you have obtained in this world, and the newborn spirit will give you rich rewards!”
“Please cherish this opportunity, because after leaving the joint trial, you will only encounter similar opportunities in the distant world’s golden main mission!”
“Warning, your body is still touching the statue at this time, only your consciousness has entered this space. Please complete the sacrifice as soon as possible to avoid unpredictable consequences outside.”
“Below, please choose a title obtained in this world at will, then put it into the burning flames.”
Fang Linyan did what he said. Of course, he thought about it and chose the title obtained with the least difficulty: Stark’s Blessing (Temporary).
Suddenly, as his mind flashed, without using his hand to place, the title of Stark’s Blessing (Temporary) flew directly into the burning flames. There was a progress bar above the flame. The color of the progress bar was white, and it was almost 3/4 full. At the same time, there was a red button with the words “Confirm Sacrifice” written on it.
Fang Linyan then withdrew Stark’s Blessing (Temporary) and replaced it with another title: Murderer. He found that this title had filled the progress bar below, and the progress bar turned blue.
“I understand, the energy contained in the title is different, and the quality of the gifts received after the sacrifice is also different?”
Next, Fang Linyan tried the 6 titles in turn, and he found that the title with the highest value was Normal Mind! After sacrificing it, he actually got the silver-quality sacrifice directly, and the progress bar only lacked 1/5 before achieving green!
Obviously, the attribute of “authority” on this title played a very important role. According to Fang Linyan’s speculation, this attribute would mostly only appear on Silver Story/or higher-quality equipment, and its appearance wouldn’t be frequent.
Fang Linyan then put the title “Scholar” in it. Unfortunately, a prompt appeared immediately,
“The newborn spirit is not interested in the energy in this title…”
Then Fang Linyan tried to put multiple titles together, and he found that this was allowed. However, if he sacrificed 5 titles together, he found that the progress bar was only green. There was still half a bar before reaching the next level which is dark golden. There was no qualitative change…
Therefore, Fang Linyan needed to choose whether to keep Black Market (One-time) or Precision Strike.
Precision Strike was of extraordinary significance to those who were good at long-range attacks. But Black Market (One-time) also had the opportunity to make people reborn and change their destiny. The only hidden worry was that this title did not indicate whether it could be used after leaving this world.
After thinking about it, Fang Linyan decided to keep Black Market (One-time). The reason was simple. He didn’t have any powerful long-range attack methods. He got a 98K. Because of the lack of basic shooting skills, he couldn’t even exert its full power.
Now that Fang Linyan knew that his body was still touching the monument at this time, for the sake of safety, he must not be indecisive.
Therefore, he simply sacrificed the remaining 4 titles.
The moment he clicked to sacrifice, he felt that the entire consciousness space was vibrating. The flames suddenly inflated. The dull laughter of “hehehehahaha” spread around him, then was he felt a warm force pushed him away. After a blur of his vision, he had returned to his body.
As soon as Fang Linyan returned to his body, he saw that the red light on the steel statue he touched was obviously reduced by half, but he couldn’t see the red light anymore after 1 second.
Then a prompt came from his retinas,
You have completed the mission: A Peculiar Clue.
Please follow the arrow that appears on the retinas to move forward and receive rewards.
Warning: This reward is time-limited and non-unique. Once the limited time is exceeded, it may disappear/be taken first by others.
Then Fang Linyan saw a small arrow appear on the top of his field of vision. At the same time, a 29:59 fast beating countdown appeared at the top right, which meant that this reward would only be retained for half an hour.
What else could he do at this time? He could only immediately run, following the direction indicated by the small arrow on his retinas.
Fortunately, Fang Linyan didn’t run far, and he saw a bicycle leaning on the wall next to him. The owner just went in to buy things in the shop. At this time, he didn’t care about the morals and rode the bicycle. When the owner yelled at him, Fang Linyan turned his head and threw a platinum coin on his face, then he began to pedal frantically.
With the help of this broken bicycle, Fang Linyan quickly got out of the city. Looking at the direction, it led to the lower reaches of the Dunwall River. He walked down the Dunwall River, then he finally stopped among the papyrus reeds next to the river.
This kind of reed was about 2 people tall. The leaves were yellow-green, and the spica were pink-white in large clusters, so this piece of reeds looked like a pink-white cloud falling on the ground. It was very beautiful.
Fang Linyan was standing among the papyrus reeds at this time, only about 2 meters away from the bank of Dunwall River, but he was covered entirely. It was difficult to detect his presence even if there were ships passing by in the river. After arriving here, the arrow on his head was pointing downward, indicating that this was the location of the mission rewards.
Not long after, Fang Linyan suddenly realized that the Dunwall River water suddenly became muddy, and a large number of whirlpools appeared on the water. Obviously, something was swimming quickly under the water. This thing quickly surfaced. It was a huge lizard crocodile that was more than 10 meters long. It looked extremely ferocious.
If the lizard crocodile that Fang Linyan killed before was an elite level, then this monster would completely surpass it in terms of size, deterrence, and explosive power. It should be a leader creature. Fang Linyan could only run for his life seeing this creature.
Inside the sharp and long big mouth of this lizard crocodile, there was actually a crustacean that looked like a trilobite. This guy was also 6 meters long. It was covered with a thick layer of chitin carapace which made it look like a tank.
This giant worm was bitten by the waist, and a series of screams were emitted from its mouthpart. The thick carapace on its body had been broken. A large amount of blue liquid leaked from the cracks on the carapace, spreading on the surface of the water for a long time.
After seeing this scene, Fang Linyan understood why the price of large fish in Yangfan City was so high; ordinary people could afford to buy some small shrimps and small fishes. Probably because there were various terrifying mutated monsters in Dunwall River. One could only set up some shrimp traps or fish on the shore. If one used a fishing boat to hunt, he would be exposed to various attacks at any time. Presumably, there should many vicious incidents of boat capsize and death.
TL: What will he receive? He really gambled all his titles into this reward…
