When Chen Yu recovered from the chaotic sensation of weightlessness, he continuously heard electronically synthesized sounds in his mind.

“Just as I expected!”
Chen Yu opened his eyes in ecstasy, stretched out his hands, spread them, clenched them, spread them, then clenched them again as he felt the changes in his body.
Everything was as he’d anticipated.
For him, radiation, which ordinary people felt was frightening, was a great tonic!
“Aren’t I f*ckin overpowered now?”
Overjoyed, Chen Yu took a deep breath.
[Exposure to lethal radiation: Heart and lung function +27; Bone strength +30; Endocrine health +12; Digestive function +24…]
“Is friggin awesome!
“How can this be a curse?
“This is obviously a blessing from god!
“It sure is great to be a traverser.”
No matter where he went, he would remain above all…
“Bro, you alright?”
The sudden voice freed Chen Yu from his excitement.
He turned around to see who it was, only to find four warriors surrounding him. They were also wearing protective clothing and all had stern expressions on their faces.
Adjusting his fully enclosed helmet, Chen Yu answered in a low voice, “Huh? Oh, I’m alright.”
“Good.” The man who’d asked him if he was okay nodded and took a step backward. “You weren’t moving just now, so I thought that your protective gear was damaged and you were being hit by the intense radiation out here.”
“I’m fine. Couldn’t be any more comfortable.”
Having experienced decades of struggling on the verge of death, humans had learned how to survive in this world of martial arts.
And that involved cooperation.
In the city, there was infighting, competition, and crime.
But in the wild or foreign lands, even strangers would come together as one.
Because objectively, this could indeed increase one’s chance of survival.
Coupled with the “cooperative” education that governments had been promoting since childhood, the habit of helping each other outside the city had become instinctual to most warriors.
“You don’t seem to have a Geiger counter equipped?” asked one woman among the four.
“Geiger counter?” Chen Yu was taken aback. “Well, I don’t have one.”
“Then how can you confirm that the radiation in your protective clothing isn’t over the limits?” The woman took out a square box from her backpack and handed it to Chen Yu. “Put this into your protective gear and initialize it. If it reads over 800 mSv, it means that there’s a problem with your protective gear.”
“Oh! Thank you!” Chen Yu thankfully shook hands with the woman and then grabbed the Geiger counter and stuffed it into his protective gear.
It was worth mentioning that the moment Chen Yu unzipped his protective gear, the amount of radiation he received abruptly spiked.
[Exposure to lethal radiation: Muscle tissue +57; Qi and Blood +32; Health +46…]
Zipping up the safety hatch and initializing the Geiger counter, he promptly heard clicking sounds…
The screen on the square box displayed the current amount of radiation within his protective clothing.
“It’s below 800, so no issues.” Chen Yu made an OK gesture to the female warrior.
“Good. You can return it to me after you get out of here.”
Seeing the four turn around and recede into the distance, Chen Yu felt an inexplicably warm sensation.
“There’s a lot of good people in this world…”
In times of crisis, people would always help each other of the same race.
In contrast, the morally bankrupt society in his previous life was simply terrible.
Putting away the Geiger counter, Chen Yu finally had the time to observe his surroundings.
He discovered that the hall he was in was made of metal and that it was extremely large and empty. There were only dozens of warriors in bloated protective clothing walking around.
Around the hall, there were many metal doors.
Planned and neatly arranged.
Evidently, it had been built artificially.
Of these metal doors, some were opened, some were closed, some were damaged, and some were in the process of being damaged…
As the wall was self-illuminating, Chen Yu could see clearly.
In front of the largest metal door on the left, more than a dozen warriors were holding weapons, mobilizing their Vigor, and slamming on the door frantically.
Clanking sounds continuously arose.
But the metal door sustained hardly any damage.
It may take a few days for them to smash it open…
After observing for quite some time, Chen Yu stepped forward, walked around the hall a few times, and slipped into an open metal door when no one was paying attention to him.
Behind the door was a long and narrow passage.
On both sides of the passage, there were still rows of metal doors.
From afar, he could see several people in the distance checking on the doors one after another in search of one that could be opened.
Chen Yu walked to one of the metal doors and pushed on it.
The metal door wouldn’t budge.
He unleashed all the Vigor in his body.
The door was still as solid as a mountain…
“This won’t do. It won’t open at all.”
Giving up, Chen Yu walked forward.
After walking about fifty meters, he came to a crossroad.
On the left and right of the intersection, there were still seemingly endless passageways. Likewise, there were also tight metal doors on both sides.
Continuing 50 meters forward, he arrived at another intersection…
All of a sudden, Chen Yu roughly understood just how large the building was.
Looking back, he quickened his pace and walked 200 meters forward.
“50 meters plus 50 meters plus 200 meters.”
“I’ve traveled for about 300 meters now. Turn, I took a left turn…”
As he spoke, Chen Yu turned to the left and continued walking.
This Foreign Realm was like a maze. If he didn’t remember the route he’d come from, it was very likely that he would get lost.
The noise of the Geiger counter was getting higher and higher in frequency.
Chen Yu lowered his head and glanced at it. To his surprise, the reading had exceeded 1000mSv.
“Is the protective gear broken?”
Standing in the same spot, he tentatively took a step backward.
The [1067mSv] on the Geiger counter immediately dropped to [1063mSv].
“The protective gear isn’t broken.”
Chen Yu raised his head and looked into the depths of the passageway. “The further I go, the closer I am to the radioactive source!”
He began moving once again.
Likewise, the reading on the Geiger counter soared.
When the value exceeded [1500mSv], Chen Yu found an open metal door beside him.
After hesitating for a while, he stopped, made a turn, and walked through the door, ready to glance inside.
And what he saw shocked him!
In the metal room behind the door, there was a bloody corpse lying on the ground!

Chen Yu gulped, cautiously stepped forward, and kicked the corpse with his foot. “Yo, you alive?”
Chen Yu: “You dead.”
