Chapter 4: Take A Little Revenge
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Closing the attribute bar, Li Xiaonian stepped into the novice base—-Skyfire Base.
Skyfire Base, a novice base with a population of about ten thousand people, was surrounded by 30-meter-high steel walls with various heavy weapons erected on the walls.
In the base, novice players came and went. Some players controlled the exoskeleton to help robots carry goods, and some teamed up, ready to farm.
Li Xiaoyoung entered the trading market adroitly.
At this time, the trading market was crowded with people and noisy with a hubbub of voices.
“Come take a look, heavy machine gun, fierce firepower, only costs 3 gold coins.”
“The magic wand, bronze-class, the elementalists’ favorite, walk-away price, only need 1 gold coin.”
“The rare skill book of evolvas is on sale [Inch Strike].”
Li Xiaonian didn’t even look at the equipment of the novice base. It was too low-end. Of course, now he didn’t have any identity documents, and these sellers wouldn’t sell anything to him.
He came to the trading market to look for someone, a hapless guy who had duped him in his previous life. The ID of that guy was Tianyu. It was precisely because that b*stard duped him that he was trapped in the novice base for a long time in his previous life.
At first, Li Xiaonian hated Tianyu, but after a long time of contact, they found they were actually quite compatible and even became good brothers who could trust each other.
Searching in the crowd carefully with his gaze, finally, in a remote corner, Li Xiaonian spotted a dejected young man with luxurious equipment. That man was exactly who he was looking for—-Tianyu.
Tianyu was a hapless guy, He was an old player who deleted his former account and replayed this game. Unexpectedly, the novice base he was randomly reborn in turned out to be the Skyfire Base.
Skyfire Base seemed to be the public domain of NPCs, but in fact, this base was controlled by a guild named [Wolf Walk], and the president was Tianyu’s deadly opponent—-Lang Xiaotian.
Overjoyed to learn that Tianyu had deleted his account and was reborn in Skyfire Base, Lang Xiaotian immediately issued an order, which was to imprison Tianyu in this novice base at all costs.
As the order was given, Tianyu’s nightmare began. As long as he left the safe area, he would be greeted by the endless pursuit of the Wolf Walk Guild.
After dying three times, he gave in and tamely hid in the novice base.
He had no choice. The punishment for death in “Star Wind” was very harsh. If you die once, your health point would be permanently reduced by one point. If you died too many times, your game account would be invalidated.
In addition, players couldn’t delete their accounts and create a new account before reaching level 30.
Seeing Tianyu again, Li Xiaonian couldn’t help smiling. He clicked on the friend function in the system menu to send a friend request to Tianyu.
When Tianyu was extremely bored, his system suddenly popped up a friend request.
Seeing the friend’s request, Tianyu was stunned for a moment and then clicked to confirm it without hesitation. Through the friend function, Tianyu could see Li Xiaonian’s occupation and level information at a glance.
A novice player? And he hadn’t joined the Wolf Walk Guild?
Tianyu’s eyes lit up. His goal finally appeared! He quickly sent a message. “Brother, who are you?”
In order to avoid being targeted by the Wolf Walk Guild, Li Xiaonian didn’t approach Tianyu, and just replied with a message. “I know your situation. Give me 1000 gold coins and I promise you can safely leave the novice base within 50 days.”
Tianyu was puzzled and replied. “Do I know you? Why should I believe that you, a novice, can take me safely away from the novice base? Also, 1,000 gold coins are equivalent to 100,000 yuan. Do you think I am stupid and gullible?”
Li Xiaonian smiled faintly and continued to send messages. “Yes, that’s how I think of you. I am in a bad mood now, so the price has changed. The price increases by 200 gold coins and the total commission is 1200 gold coins. Every time you bargain, the price increases by 200 gold coins. So just do as you see fit.”
Tianyu froze for a while and then carefully sent a message. “Let’s sign a system contract?”
“Sure.” Li Xiaonian replied with conviction.
When Tianyu got the affirmative answer, he was excited.
Being trapped in the novice base and unable to play games normally for three and a half months, Tianyu felt that he was going crazy. Now that he finally saw hope, it would be strange if he wasn’t excited.
Tianyu replied with excitement. “1200 gold coins, deal.”
Li Xiaonian smiled, sent the prepared system contract to Tianyu, and left a message. “I don’t have any money now, so you’ll pay for the system contract fee.”
The contract was very simple.
Li Xiaonian would help Tianyu escape the novice base. In return, Tianyu would have to pay him a commission of 1,200 gold coins, with a down payment of 600 gold coins, and the remaining 600 gold coins to be paid after him being out of trouble.
In addition, during the escape, Tianyu must unconditionally obey Li Xiaonian’s reasonable commands. If there was a breach of contract or failure to complete the task, Li Xiaonian shall pay three times the compensation. Otherwise, his personal attributes would be permanently halved.
1200 gold coins seemed to be a lot but were trivial to the rich boy, Tianyu.
System: “600 gold coins were transferred into your account, the balance is 600 gold coins.”
Easily earning 60,000 yuan, Li Xiaonian smiled.
In the previous life, inexperienced, he was easily swindled by Tianyu with 200 gold coins into signing a deceptive contract. This time, he increased the price by six times as a little revenge on Tianyu.
With 600 gold coins on him, Li Xiaonian felt much more confident.
Tianyu said, “Brother June, now that we’ve signed the contract, can you tell me how you’re going to take me out of this damned place?”
Li Xiaonian smiled. “I’ve received reliable news that 26 days later, the Skyfire Base will be subject to a monster attack. By then, the Wolf Walk Guild will have no time to keep an eye on you. You know what I mean. We’ve signed a system contract, so you don’t have to worry about my running away. I will contact you when the time comes. Before that, don’t bother me, even if you recognize me. You know the consequences if I get on the Wolf Walk Guild’s blacklist.”
A monster attack 26 days later?
Tianyu had an urge to vomit blood. “F*ck, I’ve been duped.”
If there were really monsters attacking the city, he would be able to escape even without the assistance of other people.
Having earned 600 gold coins, Li Xiaonian left the trading market and went to the square registration office.
Was the Wolf Walk Guild powerful?
Yes, very powerful.
In the Skyfire Base, if you didn’t join the Wolf Walk Guild, you wouldn’t be able to do anything. Not only players wouldn’t sell items to you, even NPC wouldn’t release tasks to you.
In this monopolistic state, the only choice for novice players was to join the Wolf Walk Guild and follow their instructions.
As time went by, 96% of the players in the Skyfire Base were members of the Wolf Walk Guild today, which was why Tianyu had been unable to escape from this novice base.
“Star Wind” had been running for a year and a month, and there were still many new players queuing up to register. Some of these players were old players. The reason for them deleting their old accounts and creating a new one was simple: they had died too many times, so their health points were extremely low, so were their combat power. Therefore, they had no choice.
The administrator in the registration office was a cute-looking woman with her ID floating on her head, which was Xiao Feifei. At this time, she was asking questions to novice players one by one and registering.
Soon, it was Li Xiaonian’s turn.
Xiao Feifei asked according to the rules. “Are you a novice player? Or an old player? Do you have any skills? If you do, you can join the guild free of charge and will be paid with salary and benefits that will depend on your ability. But if you don’t have any skill, you’ll need to pay a deposit of 10 gold coins to join our Wolf Walk Guild, which will be returned to you with interest three months after you join the guild.”
Li Xiaonian responded expressionlessly, “I am a reserve elite of the Red Legion, so I’m prohibited from joining any guild, and temporary membership is also prohibited. Therefore, I just want to obtain a Skyfire Base Pass.”
Join the Wolf Walk Guild? Impossible. If he joined the guild, he would be bound by the guild rules and the system contract, which would have a great impact on what he was going to do, for example, he would be prohibited from assisting any player from hostile guilds.
Therefore, the only way was to pretend to be a member of the Red Legion. The Red Legion was an official corps and belonged to the strongest guild. There was absolutely no dispute about this.
The Wolf Walk Guild was very powerful, but they certainly wouldn’t bother to spend much time investigating him, a nobody.
However, Li Xiaonian underestimated the influence of the Red Legion. After hearing his words, the surrounding players all exclaimed.
“My god, he turns out to be a reserve elite of the Red Legion! I finally saw a living member of that mysterious legion.”
“This brother looks awesome at first sight. No wonder he was recruited by the Red Legion.”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
“I’m so envious. I really want to join the Red Legion.”
Xiao Feifei, who received Li Xiaonian, encountered this situation for the first time. Slightly surprised, she looked Li Xiaonian up and down and asked unbelievingly, “Are you really a reserve member of the Red Legion?”
Young, too young, this guy seemed to be even younger than her. Was he really a reserve member of the Red Legion? He must be lying. Although Xiao Feifei had never left the Novice Base, she knew what kind of person the Red Legion elite was.
Hearing Xiao Feifei’s question, Li Xiaonian frowned. “Yes, I am. Do you have any problem with it?”
