Chapter 1- Bizarre Rebirth
Cheng Yang was stuck in a trance; he seemed to still see the enchanted birds flying through the air.
Countless human beings could be seen struggling under the enchanted beast’s claws, when all of a sudden, talons the size of a millstone clutched toward his head ….
“What is this place?” When his sight became completely clear, the scene around him left him stunned.
The classroom was vast in size, with occupancy of over 20 students. About half of the students had fallen asleep against their desks as their professor continued to vividly lecture from the textbook. Maybe he had not taken notice or perhaps he simply didn’t care.
“This…….this is my university classroom.” Cheng Yang began to survey his surrounding as he tried to comprehend his current situation.
Cheng Yang’s eyes flashed, revealing a deep sense of shock and surprise. The familiar scene in front of him made him realize something; this isn’t the bloody battlefield anymore, but a harmonious and peaceful classroom.
It seems the memory of that battlefield is entirely a dream, Cheng Yang comfort himself.
Suddenly, a creepy feeling began to slowly spread itself all throughout his body. If he recalled correctly according to his memory, before he was ushered into the end, he was also in a peaceful environment without any signs.
If there really were any signs, it would be 10 minutes before the end occurs. In the beginning, violent earthquakes would occur cracking the ground, and the sky would fall from the heaven.
Cheng Yang suddenly reached into his pocket and took out his cell phone, he quickly glanced at the time: 9:32 AM April 12, 20xx.
At this moment, Cheng Yang’s forehead broke out in cold sweat, his body trembling slightly. Because he clearly remembered, these disasters in his memory began tomorrow at 5 PM, there was only a bit more than a day left.
Will the apocalypse happen again? Cheng Yang didn’t know, because he simply can’t tell at the moment whether those memories were simply a dream or a reality.
“Yoko(his nickname), what’s going on with you? “Sitting next to Cheng Yang, Liu Hao was playing a game on his cellphone. He asked lazily, his fat cheeks looking round and squishy.
Cheng Yang woke up from his stupor shocked; he looked at Liu, who had abandoned an arm to save his life after the apocalypse had occurred. This person was now sitting next to him with his arm intact. At this moment, Cheng Yang’s nose suddenly turned sour.
“Nothing, just suddenly thought of something. “Cheng Yang said. Before he can determine if those memories were real or false, he’s not going to reveal any information.
Liu gave him a skeptical look but didn’t ask anymore, said: “We have a basketball game at noon, if you’re really sick, our side will be out of a person. “With that, Liu picked his phone up again and continued to play his game.
Cheng Yang’s heart jumped and the panic in his eyes started to become more and more obvious. In his memory, a day before the disaster struck at noon, he played basketball with Liu. Did those scenes in his memory really happen?
“Yoko, are you sure you’re okay? “Liu looked at his pale face, quite disturbed asked:” You didn’t get your heart broken, right? Was she in a relationship? ”
Cheng Yang shook his head again.
“Liu, let’s said this morning the world turns into a game, how would that make you feel? “Cheng Yang suddenly asked.
Liu once again put down the phone, laughed, and glanced at Cheng Yang while saying: “You don’t need to worry so much bro, how could the world be turned into a game? ”
Cheng Yang slowly sighed and said: “I was just asking. ”
Liu laughed and said: “For us though, if this world really turned into a game, isn’t that a good thing? Killing monsters, challenging the BOSS every day, improving our strength, how awesome is that! ”
Cheng Yang from Liu’s voice heard a deep longing; this may be called fearless ignorant!
Afterward, Liu started playing his game again, while Cheng Yang was in deep thought.
According to Cheng Yang’s speculation, there was an 80% chance of doom happening. So he needed to make some preparation, or risk wasting the time left before the end.
Cheng Yang’s memory of the apocalypse lasted for a whole year, right before he was killed under the enchanted beast’s claw. Although the time is not long, it’s still very valuable.
From an outsider’s perspective, the Earth had become a game world, but for humans this was the harbinger of the end. After all, instead of playing the game, they were now living in it. This meant that for them, any injury would lead to pain, and if they die they won’t be resurrected.
A game that won’t let players resurrect after death, will attract people to play it? Obviously not. But this time humanity doesn’t have a choice, they are forced to play it. People have to go through the transfer of various types of occupations and began fighting for survival … …
Thinking about this, Cheng Yang suddenly look toward Liu. After Liu transfer to a career he had received a good talent: Each increasing a minor order, increases movement speed and attack speed by 3%.
After the world turns into a game, humans will activate a talent when they transfer to a career, and the talent grade is also divided. Every individual talent of 1% belongs to the worst of the E-grade talent, each additional 1% will make the talent go up a grade, but a single talent can only upgrade up to 3%. He knew within a year, the best talent is the dual property 6%, which is S-class talent.
But this S-level talent was a waste, as it increase magic attack power and physical damage, although the sum also reached 6%, but its real value is only as powerful as the individual upgrade 3% C-grade talent. (Ex. Mage 3% magic attack and 3% physical damage would make the physical stats useless)
Like Liu, two dual 3% talents that can be used together, are commonly referred to as God-level talent, it can be seen from this how Liu easily became a powerful person.
In order to save Cheng Yang from an enchanted beast’s claw, Liu’s arm was abruptly torn off by it. Although they were able to survive, Liu combat strength was greatly reduced. For this matter, his heart had been filled with a deep sense of guilt.
Before the apocalypse, he was just an ordinary student, and after it began there was no ability to fight fate. After struggling for a year, he finally died under the claws of an enchanted beast.
Although he doesn’t know why he was reborn, but that’s not important, what’s important is that he’s back. God gave him the chance to start over again, and this time, he might be able to repay Liu and increase his own strength.
After the end, everyone can be transferred to various occupations, but there’s one that’s very special, it’s called the Lord. Not only are they a powerful incumbent, but they are also the master of the lives and deaths of millions of people.
He also had good talent, but wasn’t able to let his talents shine in the past because it’s mainly related to the Lord and was also a B-level talent: each lifting a small order, enhance magic attack 1%, let territory transfers cultivation speed increased by 3%.
This talent wasn’t at the top, but at the end of the world, only 10% of the world had more than B-level talent.
As far as Cheng Yang knew, people associated with a Lord’s talent are rare, and the maximum is just 2%, Cheng Yang can be described as an exception with 3%. But Cheng Yang dared not say this property out loud to anyone, because this property to any Lord of a territory is a big threat. Lord-grade talent in another Lords territory is of no value. (Only one Lord per territory)
Not wanting to have a repeat of what already happened once, he realized that these memories of the past are his biggest ally.
Suddenly, Cheng Yang thought of one thing, he quickly took out his mobile phone and check the news.
“…… In a province suburb appeared a magical black stone, experts after nearly a week of analysis still couldn’t determine the composition of the stone … … “
The news behind the stone became the top story, which also included some pictures. The stone in the picture was almost three meters tall, cylindrical-shaped, dark gray in color, and very rough looking.
After seeing this report, Cheng Yang was excited; he is very familiar with this stone because it’s the prerequisite altar for a Lord to occupy a territory.
After the previous end, there was speculation that gods didn’t change the world into a game in a single day, but after a long period of small changes. This territory altar is the best proof, as it was before the disaster happened when it appeared in the world.
But at the time no one knew the effects of the altar, everyone thought of it as a natural phenomenon, and that it has some similarities with a sinkhole. The only difference is that one is concave while the other one is convex.
Only after the end two months later, finally someone accidentally discovered the effects of the altar. Then passed the message on to the rest of the world.
This territory altar appears not only in the suburb, but also in the country, and even scattered around the world. Unfortunately, most of them are buried in the ground, and wasn’t found until the apocalypse came, the powerful earthquake made all the territories altars revealed their true colors.
Cheng Yang’s joy didn’t come from this altar, but around Xiangcheng city, Luo Feng Po, five km away there is also a territory altar. In the third month after the end, the military forces of the city occupied it.
It’s said that before the end came this altar had been exposed partially. Some people had seen it before, but they thought it was just an ordinary stone, so they didn’t care. Later, after this territory altar was occupied, those who originally discovered it and did nothing regretted it so much their intestines turned green.
In the end, there was speculation that the territory altars could have been occupied before the disaster, but at that time no one could verify it.
Cheng Yang now has the opportunity to start over. He was determined to find Luo Feng Po territory altar and occupy it, this will be his start toward prosperity in this game world.
After class was over, he made up an excuse to separate from Liu and took a taxi alone to Luo Feng Po alone.
In peacetime, a seventy dollars’ fare is enough to cause Cheng Yang distress, but now he doesn’t care. When disaster strikes, these notes and toilet paper made no difference.
When the taxi reached the destination, it stopped by the roadside.
Xiangcheng city is surrounded by hilly terrain; Luo Feng Po is of no exception. From his memories, the environment after the disaster is entirely different from the way it is now. Cheng Yang let out a sigh, he didn’t know how much movement would occur here tomorrow.
