Soon, the choice came. A series of related prompts appeared on their retinas at the same time,
“It is a pity that you were not selected, but being able to appear in the final draft shows that you actually have a certain strength.”
“So, you now have two options. The first option A is to erase your memories and gains at this period of time, return to your own life honestly, and be a normal person again.”
“Another option B is to keep your memories, but seal your strength beyond ordinary people and continue to return to your own lives. You cannot disclose the existence of Space in any form, then you will be called up again when the next joint trial is initiated. Of course, the difficulty of your main mission will increase accordingly.”
Seeing such a prompt, Fang Linyan suddenly understood why there were so many insiders among the contestants.
This was obviously because many people had chosen option B. They couldn’t reveal the existence of the space, but they could invite some powerful people to accompany them on adventures and hunting. They took them into the joint trial when they were recruited forcibly. Gai Qiushan, Omni, Doctor and others should be coaxed in this way.
At this time, Fang Linyan noticed that several bloody light balls began to fade and disappear. Obviously, these contestants had made their own choices and returned to their own planes.
Fang Linyan also hesitated at this time, then he yawned greatly and wanted to choose option B.
Only at this moment, a clear time-space fissure appeared again in the space more than 100 meters in front of him, then a dark black light cluster emerged directly from it. It was Noah Space R300. After it appeared, all the remaining contestants had 3 large words popped out at their retinas at the same time,
According to Article 17 of the Law of Chaos, Article 113, Paragraph 3 and Paragraph 5 of the General Principles of the Universe,
In order to gain more energy to calm the upcoming time-space turbulence, I’m here recruiting the “eukaryote/primates/human genus/sapiens/biological warriors present!”
This Conscription Order is compulsory and cannot be rejected.
After the Conscription Order is issued, you will be temporarily incorporated into our Space’s system and participate in the battle as a mercenary until the time-space turbulence recedes.
During the recruitment, if you can successfully complete the relevant missions, then you may be officially included in our Space’s warrior system.
During the recruitment, you can use some of the functions in our Space.
Because this is mandatory recruitment, you will get an opportunity for additional rewards.
After Fang Linyan read the news, he found that there were only 5 bloody light balls that hadn’t left nearby, and the black light ball representing Noah Space R300 rapidly expanded in volume, incorporating the remaining contestants into it and instantaneously traveling into the time-space tunnel.
From a distant perspective, Noah Space R300 looked like a comet, and the 5 bloody light balls were at the tail of the comet, which looked quite spectacular.
After being recruited by Noah Space R300, Fang Linyan found that he felt as if he had entered into a spacecraft. He could see the outside scenery through the scuttle, exactly like a tunnel made of light. There were a large number of diamond-shaped fragments on the wall, which looked spectacular.
However, no matter how beautiful the scenery was, it would be boring after a while. After Fang Linyan got through the initial freshness, he felt sleepy. He leaned back and fell on the protective wall of the bloody light ball and fell asleep.
After some time, there was a cool mist coming from his face. It was itchy and comfortable, so he stretched his hand to touch it.
After a few touches, the mist suddenly turned cold, which woke him up immediately. Only then did he realize that he seemed to have fallen asleep. Even though he was quite sleepy, he kept his eyes open.
Fang Linyan didn’t need to look into the mirror to know that his condition now was quite bad. He had dark circles and bloodshot eyes.
Only then did he realize that he had left the bloody light ball and came to a room of the same size. Just now, there was a square hope on top of the room. A sprinkler extended from it and sprayed the mist on him, but the sprinkler had retracted now.
The most important thing was that after the sprinkler was retracted, the square hole actually filled up on its own. Fang Linyan went up and took a look. It was seamless; it even gave him the feeling that the hole was filled up by “growing back”. Yes, this was completely beyond the scope of his understanding.
Then he looked around and found that the style of this room was simple, but the surroundings were all made of metal. When he touched with his hands, they were as soft and elastic as rubber. There was even a little bit of temperature. There wasn’t anything like a lamp, but the entire room itself was glimmering.
Fang Linyan didn’t feel cold sleeping on the floor just now; it felt quite comfortable.
Looking carefully, the layout of the room resembled that of a modern battleship; simple, bright, and capable. There was only one wall cabinet in the room, a metal stool fixed in the ground, and the edges of the wall cabinet were made into blunt circles to avoid collision and injury when accidentally falling.
Not only that, Fang Linyan found that the things he bought with platinum coins that were not recognized in the joint trial had disappeared, such as 98K, the Glock 19 custom model that was obtained from the Iron Fist Fortress, several grenades and ordinary bullets. According to the experience in 811 World, they should be directly converted into common points.
Fortunately, the Kevlar fiber combat suits that exchanged with contribution points, “porcupine” depleted uranium armor-piercing ammunition (5 remainings) were still there.
At this time, there was light shining a few times in the room, then a virtual portrait appeared.
She had a good-looking appearance and a friendly oval face. She looked about 25 years old. She was wearing a major’s navy blue military uniform. Underneath was a military skirt with a wheat ear ribbon on her chest. She said in a gentle voice,
“Contestant ZB419, welcome to Noah Space. I am Conductor 76”
“This is your exclusive room in the Space. Outsiders cannot enter without your permission. All the things you cannot bring back to the real world will be stored here. If you have a physical injury, you can quickly recover here, and it will cost a certain amount of currency.”
“When you enter the Space for the first time, we need to record your original data. Therefore, the injuries you suffered in the joint trial have been recovered for free. However, the malignant lesions that originated in the bronchial mucosa of your lungs exist before you entered the joint trial, so it is kept.”
Seeing this, Fang Linyan was stunned for a while, then he hurriedly interrupted the other party’s words impolitely and said anxiously,
“Conductor 76, how can I cure the disease?”
The conductor patiently said in a gentle tone,
“To get the answer to this question, you need to pay 500 common points.”
Fang Linyan sighed and chose to pay, then Conductor 76 said,
“If you want to completely cure your malignant tumor, you need to buy a gene repair agent. To purchase this agent, you need to meet 2 conditions. First, your military rank needs to be promoted to lieutenant. You need a sufficient number of merit points to raise your military rank. Second, you need to prepare enough common points and merit points to purchase it. I just calculated it. The total number of merit points for upgrading the rank and the merit points for purchasing potions should be more than 50 points.”
Fang Linyan silently looked at his 8 merit points,
“(?)… Okay, I’m fine. You continue.”
Conductor 76 then continued,
“You are currently entering by recruitment, so the key to entering and leaving this room is the joint trial badge that will be issued to you. In the Space, your appearance will be obscured, so when communicating with others, do not disclose your own status in reality, so as not to cause unnecessary serious consequences. If you have any needs, you can request and inquire through the joint trial badge, but it may consume a certain amount of common points.”
“Because you are forced to enter and you are ranked 1st among all contestants in the progress of obtaining the mission item (ghost face dog tag), you can get additional rewards.”
“A: You can upgrade your Withered Ironwood Branch once for free.”
“B: You can refill the Compassion and Punishment (Bark Scroll) for free once, and restore it to 4/4 (currently 1/4).”
“Please make a choice within 30 seconds. If you don’t make a choice, it will default to giving up.”
Fang Linyan was stunned, then he chose A. The reason was very simple. The negative effect of the Mana Entropy of Compassion and Punishment (Bark Scroll) was too terrible at critical times.
Then, according to the prompt, he put the Withered Ironwood Branch on his body into the blank on the wall next to him, then Conductor 76 quickly told him that the upgrade time was about 5 minutes. Because he was now a mercenary, after 5 minutes, he must leave the Space and return to his own main world according to the prompt.
After finishing talking, Conductor 76 handed him a joint trial badge, then she disappeared in thin air. The badge looked similar to the ghost face dog tag, and it was hung on the neck. On one side of the badge was still a vivid ghost head; on the other side was written with ZB419, which was inconspicuous when hung on his neck.
Soon, the 5 minutes upgrade time was completed, Fang Linyan regained the Withered Ironwood Branch. After the upgrade was completed, the name had been directly changed to “Ironwood Branch”, the description below also changed,
All attributes +1.
And there was a prompt with a clear label (synthesizable/upgradable) next to it.
TL: What’s the point? So the mysterious person wants him to keep joining the joint trial? Is he looking for something?
