Wandering Child walked directly to Freezing Water Port city lord’s residence.
The other two players on guard duty looked at Wandering Child and let him enter directly.
The two players did stand straight on guard professionally with their eyes sharp and their expressions solemn.
But their minds wandered off, watching the live broadcast taking place in the forum.
Being able to subconsciously make a solemn expression while the mind wandering elsewhere could be an extraordinary talent in a sense.
But before coming, Wandering Child had already published a post announcing his first experience trying out the newly opened affection rate store function. Therefore, the two players were much more alerted and waited patiently for a long time.
After entering the city lord’s residence, Wandering Child saw Annan in the living room drinking tea and reading the newspaper, as if he was living an elderly retirement life.
Somewhat unexpected… It’s almost time for dinner, but the Wizard Salvatore with panda eyes like Gaara isn’t here.
This is strange.
At this time, shouldn’t the former mayor also read and hang around this place?
Wandering Child vaguely felt something was amiss but didn’t overthink about it.
The players didn’t even know what kind of trouble Annan and Salvatore encountered during the eight hours while they were offline.
Wandering Child approached and greeted Annan respectfully, “Feudal lord.”
Annan raised his head slightly and noticed that it was the Wandering Child. He gave a lighthearted smile, “It’s you. Have a seat. You don’t have to stand up and talk.”
—This was naturally from Annan’s acting skills.
After all, Wandering Child had already achieved the affection rate (1200/1500), so Annan naturally had to make a trusting expression.
It could be regarded as real-life role-playing, and it sounded pretty high-end.
By the way, Annan hadn’t decided what the next level of affection rate should be called.
After friendliness is followed by trust, right? What’s the level should I call after trust?
In short, I just need to have as many levels as possible.
Annan liked the way the players tried their best to increase the affection rate. However, in reality, the players succumbed to an endless grind  to earn the NPCs affection rate.
I don’t need to worry too much about this.
After all, Annan would soon take away their affection rate back.
Wandering Child sat aside, tangled.
He didn’t know what he should say to activate the affection rate store.
Annan smiled and pretended to be an NPC to see what else this group of silly kids could do.
In the end, Wandering Child couldn’t help but apply for off-site assistance.
He glanced at the post he posted and read, according to Delicious Wind Goose’s guidance, “Feudal lord, I have already felt it. Our Freezing Water Port is facing some hardships and dangers. I am eager for more power so that I can’t serve you more.
“Although the nightmare will greatly improve our strength, we are now in some predicament.”
“Oh? What kind of predicament is it?”
Annan’s expression became slightly serious, “Do you want me to offer you advice?”
Wandering Child froze for a moment.
He glanced at the post and quickly replied, “Yes, feudal lord. I think you will know more about gallery nightmares. At least you will know better than us.”
“Yes, I do have more secret information here.” Annan nodded slowly.
He glanced at Wandering Child and muttered in a low volume, “Let me think about what kind of help I can give you.”
As he said, words suddenly appeared before Wandering Child’s eyes.
Wandering Child quickly activated the video recording:
[Free medical assistance (consumption of 100 affection rate, limited to friendly and above)]
[Learning the history of Freezing Water Port 10/10 (consumption of 200 affection rate, limited to friendly and above)]
[Learning the political relationship between the Noah Kingdom and Austere-Winter Dukedom 5/5 (consumption of 500 affection rate, limited to friendly and above)]
[A decent job with stable income 5/5 (consumption of 500 affection rate, limited to trusted and above)]
[Important information about Painter Amos 1/1 (consumption of 1000 affection rate, limited to trusted and above)]
[Taboo! Secret knowledge about the Venerated Skeleton 3/3 (consumption of 1200 affection rate, limited to trusted and above)]
[Taboo! Advanced knowledge about Transcended profession 5/5 (consumption of 1500 affection rate, limited to trusted and above)]
[Limited! Freezing Water Port resident identity certificate 40/40 (consumption 2000 affection rate, limited to trusted and above)]
What the hell is the last option!
Wandering Child was taken aback.
The 2000 affection rate… I can only get it after maxing out my affection rate. It will empty out my affection rate and put me at the bottom immediately.
This is even more expensive than the Transcended profession intelligence…
Earning knowledge with the affection rate store is too expensive! Why are there 3/3 and 5/5? Does it mean that it can be sold multiple times? Or does it mean that everything you say is incomplete every time?
Can the product be out of stock?
Do I need to wait to get the information I want?
But soon, Wandering Child reacted.
The information sold in this affection rate store should assume that the players would communicate and share information.
In other words, this information was not bought by one person.
It was something the players collectively wanted and bought together.
Those players who watched the Wandering Childlive broadcast quickly reacted.
Delicious Wind Goose immediately said, “Buy the information about the painter! You can only afford this. As long as we can get the complete information, we won’t lose the affection rate!
“No, Child God. Ask what exactly is the resident identity certificate!”
Delicious Wind Goose reacted quickly and corrected it.
Wandering Child opened his mouth and asked probingly, “Feudal lord, what if I say I want a resident identity certificate?”
Annan raised his head and looked at the Wandering Child in doubt.
His attitude became a little colder, “Do you want to invite people you know to Freezing Water Port? I have no problem with that. I can even give them a proper identity. But I don’t accept anyone. I need a guarantor.”
As Annan explained, a prompt flashed before Wandering Child’s eyes:
[The current affection rate is not enough to purchase a resident identity certificate (Freezing Water Port).]
[Please try to purchase the closed beta invitation code after accumulating more affection rates.]
After an abrupt silence, the players’ forum exploded directly.
“Fuck! Child God! You’re so smart!”
“What! I can buy an invitation code!”
“Can I buy forty slots? Is it limited to one purchase per person?”
“Teach me how to earn affection rate! I want to bring my wife in too!”
“Fuck off to whoever posts the comment above me!”
“Yeah! Fuck Off!”
Ignoring the chaotic forum, Wandering Child hesitated for a long time. Is it the priority to buy the secret information that guides for progression, or continue to save the affection rate and buy the invitation code directly?
In the end, Wandering Child finally made a decision.
If it were ten years ago, Wandering Child might choose to continue to save up the affection rate to buy the invitation code or use it to buy intelligence to gain Transcendence.
But, he had a brighter idea now.
Anyway, he didn’t have any friends he wanted to bring into this game.
It was better to gain early advantages and contribute to everyone.
“I hope you can tell me important information about Painter Amos.”
Wandering Child asked Annan seriously.
Annan nodded, “Sure.”
-Damn, if I don’t point it out directly, these dummies don’t know that this was an invitation code.
As the planner, Game Master, novice guide, and faction leader, Annan cursed in his heart.
