After hearing Shi Sheng’s explanation, 4Seas became excited. In the days after the update, quite a few people had tried to figure what was up with the alliance screen, but no one had managed to find out anything.

‘So a Camp Token was needed.’

[PM] 4Seas8Lands : [Little Music, you’re simply Big Brother’s lucky star! I won’t take this Camp Token for nothing. State a price, I’ll buy it.]

If Shi Sheng hadn’t helped him out with clearing Twinklegem Tower, he wouldn’t have been able to clear it at all, much less get his hands on this Camp Token.

[PM] Music For Miles : [10k I guess]

[PM] 4Seas8Lands : [Isn’t that too little? Little Music, if you sell this on the market, you’d definitely be able to make a lot. Your Bro here won’t take advantage of you.]

[PM] Music For Miles : [10k. take it or leave it. give it back if you don’t want it.]

‘Never seen someone so willing to give other’s more money… Even if you’re rich, this is no way to spend it…’

[PM] 4Seas8Lands : [I want it!]

4Seas had already learned about some of Shi Sheng’s temperament. He knew that she meant what she said, and that she wouldn’t change her mind from 10k. So, he decided to compensate her through other methods instead.

[PM] 4Seas8Lands : [Little Music, since a Camp Token dropped in our server, does that mean the other server also has one?]

The items in Twinklegem Tower had their counterparts in their server partner, so it shouldn’t have been the case that the Camp Token had only dropped in their server, and none in Transient Life.

[PM] Music For Miles : [it shld be on ink seeker]

‘That fellow made an alliance later on… so he should’ve had one…’

4Seas and Shi Sheng chatted for a while. Only when he returned to his guild did he use the Camp Token.

[Loudspeaker] System Announcement : Congratulations to 4Seas8Lands for founding the “World” Alliance. All heroes are welcomed to join.

[Loudspeaker] System Announcement : Congratulations to 4Seas8Lands for founding the “World” Alliance. All heroes are welcomed to join.

[Loudspeaker] System Announcement : Congratulations to 4Seas8Lands for founding the “World” Alliance. All heroes are welcomed to join.

The three announcements floated across every player’s head. The world chat burst into discussion.

[World] Pig-riding Stargazer : [What’s an alliance?]

[World] Got 3 Bags At Home : [since there were three announcements, it must be different from the rest!]

[World] Breaking News : [Look at the alliance screen.]

[World] 4Seas8Lands : [Everyone except Drunkflower Den and dogs are welcome to join.]

[World] Sir Jade : [Everyone except Drunkflower Den and dogs are welcome to join.]

[World] ……

Pretty much everyone online had popped onto world chat. Nearly the entire chat was filled with repetitions of [Drunkflower Den and dogs aren’t allowed in.]

The strange thing was, there was no reply or reaction at all from Drunkflower Den. Even the bad-tempered Wind-Walking The Heavens hadn’t turned up to curse everyone.

Many players opened up the alliance screen.

There was now a listing in the once-empty alliance window.

World Alliance

Alliance Head: 4Seas8Lands

Alliance Level: 2

Members: 378

4Seas soon received a lot of private messages from others. After he finished explaining what he knew about alliances, the number of members quickly shot upwards and broke a thousand, reaching the conditions for participating in an alliance war.

The alliance level also rose to 3, and a new ‘Camp’ ability was unlocked.

[Loudspeaker] System Announcement : Congratulations to Sang Yu’s Not Late for founding the “Carefree” Alliance. All heroes are welcomed to join.

[Loudspeaker] System Announcement : Congratulations to Sang Yu’s Not Late for founding the “Carefree” Alliance. All heroes are welcomed to join.

[Loudspeaker] System Announcement : Congratulations to Sang Yu’s Not Late for founding the “Carefree” Alliance. All heroes are welcomed to join.

Shi Sheng was surprised. She opened up the alliance window. ‘How come it’s the FL who made the alliance?’

Carefree Alliance

Alliance Head: Sang Yu’s Not Late

Alliance Level: 1

Members: 166

‘Ze, this’ll be fun.’

While everyone else was still focused on the new alliance system, Shi Sheng took the time to go research the hidden quest unlocked after her 99 deaths.

Hidden Quest : Dream of A Thousand Years

There was only something about finding an NPC. What a scam.

Shi Sheng switched to the forums and searched for a bit, but she didn’t find any thread to do with hidden quests.

‘Seems like no one from the other servers has gotten a hidden quest yet…

Though I guess that’s about right. After all, which moron would’ve just stood there and let themselves be killed 99 times without fighting back?

But this isn’t the time to be doing quests! It’s time for revenge!

Ink Seeker you little bitch, just you wait!’
    ……

[PM] Music For Miles : [dashen]

His screen having been blocked by the conversation window that suddenly popped up, Ji Yan’s avatar was smacked to death by the boss he had been fighting.

[PM] Music For Miles : [oh dear, u died, what a pity]

And the conversation window disappeared.

Ji Yan opened up his map to check the surroundings. He didn’t see anyone…

He selected the option to respawn back at the city and ran back to continue fighting the boss. But just as the boss was about to die…

The conversation window popped up again, causing his avatar to die tragically under the boss’ claws.

[PM] Music For Miles : [dashen, so u rly were poor… I thought they were just spouting nonsense]

[PM] Music For Miles : [oh dear, died again. even when you die, you die in such a captivating way. really… not screenshotting this would be letting down the GM]

Ji Yan was about to reply when the conversation window disappeared.

He tapped forcefully on the keyboard out of frustration.

In the end, his avatar had revived and been bound to the spot.

[World] Music For Miles : [Langya Ridge. 233, 65]

Without even needing any more explanation, responses popped up on world chat.

[World] Enjoying Wind : [Music For Miles has caught Ink Seeker-dashen again. Just how determined is she???]

[World] Countless Twists : [ink seeker just you wait!]

[World] Green Flower On Sauerkraut : [love-hate relationship?]

[World] Eternal Peace : [*falls to my knees at Music’s feet* Not even the people from Countless Generations can find Ink Seeker so how come she can find him so easily?!?]

[World] Harry’s Noble Deer : [lil music’s awesome!]

[World] Flowertalk Beauty : [music’s a b*tch]

[World] Snowfall Undermoon : [yo, who did the b*tch just slander?]1

[World] Music For Miles : [b*tches have other b*tches to deal with, you’re always welcome to come at me]2

[World] Harry’s Noble Deer : [can’t hold back anymore… little music, how can you be so cute? hahahahahaha]

[World] Flowertalk Beauty : [u admitted ur a b*tch! nvr seen such a shameless &^%$#]

[World] Music For Miles : [*slight smile* even if I’m a b*tch, I’m at the ancestor-level. u aren’t even fit to hold my shoes so go back and practise a few more years. don’t come out to shame urself]

System Announcement: Player Music For Miles has placed a bounty of 38g3 on Flowertalk Beauty. Limited to 24 hours.

[World] Flowertalk Beauty : [^%$*, music u *&^&^, 1v1 me, don’t just set bounties!]

[World] Music For Miles : [well fine then]

System Announcement: Player Music For Miles has placed a kill order of 200g on Flowertalk Beauty. Heroes, take up your arms!

[World] Wind Between My Legs, Butt Itches : [pfft~ music for miles isn’t playing around]

Kill orders were on a higher level than bounties. As long as the person who posted the kill order didn’t revoke it, the mission to kill this person would remain. Meaning that players could earn the reward of 200 gold every time they killed the player it was posted on.

It was the best tool for getting someone ganked out of the game.

Flowertalk Beauty had either been scared off the chat by this or was being chased around by others because of this kill order, for she didn’t make another peep on the world chat.


Author’s Note:

3rd update.

Saw someone say they couldn’t understand what they were reading. No worries, everyone has their preferences.

I can’t possibly cater to all of your preferences, so please show some understanding.

After all some of you babes wanted to see a proper gaming novel~

Those of you who don’t find this arc to your liking can wait for the next one (it’ll be quick, only around a few days)

T^T

Even for the babes who don’t like it, can you still subscribe…? (Yes, I am shamelessly asking to be kept. It’s just a few dollars! Definitely worth it!)


Translator’s Corner:

Translator: Author-sama works very hard you know. She uploads 5 chapters a day of 2,000 characters. If I had the money, I’d be sending them to her!

 

  1. It’s not easy to translate this since it relies on the grammar of the Chinese language. Basically, this question could be interpreted as “Who are you calling a bitch?” or “Who’s the bitch calling?” It’s a trap that traps the curser into admitting they’re a bitch if they answer.
  2. This is yet another thing that’s hard to translate since it involves some slang. Here’s the original, “贱人自有贱人磨,欢迎来磨”

    For the first half, it means bitches will get their comeuppance. The second half, however, relies on changing the reading of “磨” from “troubles/trials” to “rub”. So she’s saying come rub me bitch.

    …This is probably why I hardly ever try to translate gaming novels- because of all the slang.

  3. 38 is derogatory slang for stupid and always refers to women. The origin might come from March 8th being International Women’s Day. 

Wenhui

Wenhui is a kind and caring translator who couldn’t resist sharing her love for novels with everyone out there. She was so eager to share it, that she went as far as to create a blog just for that very purpose. Her editor Reekahia was lured in for the ride …

    SS is the only reason why I bother paying for wifi so that I will not miss new updates. Gambate author-sama and translator-sama (and others also!) Add oil!

  25. Ash · May 17, 2018

    I don't really get why Shi Sheng is viewed as cute in the world chat. Can some1 explain?

    • Pizuya · May 18, 2018

      I guess it's because she's coming up with fire or other ways to get back at someone.

    • Havana · May 18, 2018

      They find her antics cute. I find it cute too lol. She's very different from how she used to be so they think she snapped and is hilarious. At least that's how I see it

  26. Mach · May 17, 2018

    Wow Shi Shend really isn't messing around with the comebacks.

  27. ricecal · May 17, 2018

    Thank you very much

  28. libraryrocker · May 17, 2018

  29. wildjerk · May 17, 2018

    i wanna help lol

  30. FableCat · May 17, 2018

    In Cantonese, it is code for 八婆 which means "bitch" but literally means "nosy* woman". In Mandarin, the meaning of 38 is not the same. (Quote directly from Gabriel Chan). I think her neaning fit that bitch description.

    I wonder if Ink Seeker will soon agree to be kept
    I'm so looking forward for 4seas speaking who was the one who actually gave information and ruined mc's past guild~
