Once her business was settled on the world chat, she turned back to what was going on on her screen. The people from Countless Generations had arrived and were using Ink Seeker as a punching bag.

Ink Seeker had already lost 10 or so levels before; after being chased around by Shi Sheng for the past few days, he had dropped to level 78.

[PM] Ink Seeker : [Just what do you want?]

[PM] Music For Miles : [see here now, I’m only lvl 55. at the very least, you’ve gotta come accompany me on the same lvl]

‘I(bbb) hold my grudges, okay? People who don’t avenge themselves can’t call themselves petty!’

[PM] Ink Seeker : [If you have the time to be chasing me around, you might as well be getting your levels back.]

‘With her abilities, she should be able to level back up quite easily but she chases me around all day long instead…’

[PM] Music For Miles : [how could lvling be more important than you?]

[PM] Ink Seeker : [……]

Ji Yan shut the chat window and once again removed the Binding Scroll, killed everyone, then fled the scene.

As the two’s antics got wilder, Ink Seeker’s level fell at a rapid speed. Right now, everyone in the server was aware that these two were in a love-hate relationship.

Looking for Ink Seeker? Ask Music For Miles.

Looking for Music For Miles? Ask her on world chat.

But she actually started asking for a fee later on—charging 20 gold per answer!

    ……

Today, Shi Sheng received a message from Wooden Bellz the second she logged on.

[PM] Wooden Bellz : [Clearwest-jie, I haven’t logged on recently. How come the game has changed so much? Am I still playing Land of Gods & Demons?]

[PM] Music For Miles : [Still the original recipe, still the original taste. That’s right; this is the game you’re playing, Land of Gods & Demons.]1

[PM] Wooden Bellz : [I just went on the forums… *cries* my level is so low. I can only count as an alt now…]2

[PM] Music For Miles : [No worries. See, I’m an alt now too.]

Wooden Bellz didn’t reply for half a moment, probably having been startled upon seeing Shi Sheng’s current level.

[PM] Wooden Bellz : [Clearwest-jie… your level…]

[PM] Music For Miles : [I’ll bring you levelling, wanna come?]

‘It’s time to get my level back up. The little bitches on the leaderboards have been laughing for too long!

It’s time to make a comeback and conquer them!’

[PM] Wooden Bellz : [Okay!]

Shi Sheng sent Snowfall Undermoon a request to join the party which was accepted very quickly before inviting Wooden Bellz to join.

Upon seeing the group filled with experts, she started to stammer (in text).

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [So many Dashens…]

[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : [lil musey, where’d you kidnap this girl from? how come we’ve never met her before?]

[Party] Music For Miles : [the person who’s already in a relationship, shut up]

[Party] Windsong Undermoon : [hahahaha, snowfall got rejected again. lil musey, i’m still single, wanna consider me?

[Party] Windsong Undermoon : [wtf, snowfall da f*ck u doing?!]

[Party] Crabapple Undermoon : [wiped]

Whilst they had been busy chatting, the group had gotten themselves killed at the hands (or whatever) of the mobs they were meant to be clearing.

[Party] Drunkalone Undermoon : [lil musey wants to lvl? come to langya ridge, we’ll carry you]

[Party] Music For Miles : [k. lil bellz, teleport over]

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [Okay, Clearwest-jie.]

Whenever Wooden Bellz conversed with the other members of the party, she always seemed rather awkward so at first, so they assumed she was just shy.

However, they were then welcomed by the sight of her fluently praising and worshipping Shi Sheng; this caused them to feel a bit exasperated.

‘Us men can’t actually compete with another girl!’

This whole time, Shi Sheng was pretty much just leeching experience and spending the time to check out her hidden quest.

[Party] Music For Miles : [Have any of you seen an NPC called “兮澧” {Xi Li}?]

She had looked for the NPC while chasing Ink Seeker around the map, yet had come up with nothing.

‘Did this NPC ascend the heavens or something?!’

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [No. Did you have a quest to look for this NPC, Clearwest-jie? I’ll help you ask around.]

[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : [xi what?]

[Party] Crabapple Undermoon : [li]

[Party] Windsong Undermoon : [uneducated]

[Party] Drunkalone Undermoon : [the uneducated person who had to ask uncle wiki has no right to speak about others]

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [Dashens… you died.]

[Party] Drunkalone Undermoon : [da faq, snowfall, why didn’t you look after my hp?!]

[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : [I’m uneducated so I don’t know how.]

[Party] Windsong Undermoon : [hahaha karma]

    ……

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [Clearwest-jie, everyone I know hasn’t seen this NPC before.]

Godly Tycoon has joined the party.

[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : [lil musey, what quest is it?]

[Party] Godly Tycoon : [?]

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [Clearwest-jie, I think I see Godly Tycoon-ge…]

[Party] Music For Miles : [Tis’ true, your eyes do not deceive you.]

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [I actually saw a real, live Godly Tycoon-ge…!! *excited*]

Shi Sheng replied to Wooden Bellz and displayed the quest on the channel.

[Party] Godly Tycoon : [Who brought the girl?]

Everyone else in the party could feel an inexplicable killing intent in those words.

Crabapple Undermoon hurriedly replied.

[Party] Crabapple Undermoon : [lil musey brought her]

[Party] Godly Tycoon : [……]

Ever since he had met her, Godly Tycoon hadn’t seen Music for Miles speak so amiably to anyone else but them before. She had always spoken to others with a barbed tone that would make their tempers burst.

[Party] Crabapple Undermoon : [hidden quest? lil musey’s luck is quite good!]

[Party] Music For Miles : [your luck would be good too if you got killed 99 times]

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [Clearwest-jie’s luck is the best!]

[Party] Music For Miles : […So has any of you seen this NPC before?]

‘Have to complete the quest I used 99 deaths to obtain even if it means crawling the rest of the way!’

Everyone in the party said they hadn’t seen that NPC before. Crabapple Undermoon offered to help her ask around.

Since there was no time limit on the hidden quest, she could afford to be patient; levelling up was the most urgent matter right now.

Everyone else agreed.

    ……

While Shi Sheng was busy levelling, the people on the server noticed that both Ink Seeker and Music For Miles had gone silent. 4Seas8Lands and Sang Yu’s Not Late, on the other hand, had started showing up more often after their alliances had stabilized.

Alliance Bases required people to go to level 120 maps to create them. But since the highest levelled player right now was only at 109, people of both alliances fought a lot for the sake of snatching the best levelling spots.

Sang Yu’s Not Late and 4Seas8Lands both belonged to the Deity Camp, leaving the Demon Camp with no alliances of their own. This caused quite a few people on the Demon’s side to feel rather anxious.

During the day, Shi Sheng would level up manually while setting it on auto by using bots at night. She used around a week to get her back up to her former level.

[Party] Wooden Bellz : [Clearwest-jie, look at the world chat.]

[Party] Windsong Undermoon : [snowfall, your brother windy’s showed up]

Shi Sheng retreated to a safe place before opening up the world chat.

[World] Sang Yu’s Not Late : [I have nothing to say. My innocence will prove itself.]

[World] Mu Li In Love : [Big Brother Li, I personally saw her and Wind-Walking The World hugging! Don’t let her fool you!]

[World] Wind-walking The World : [where’d you see it, huh? have any screenshots?]

[World] Snowfall Undermoon : [big bro windy, it’s only been this long since i showed you some love yet you’ve already found someone else! i’m very angry! i’m losing control!]

[World] Windsong Undermoon : [snowfall, go eat your medicine and stop kicking up a fuss]

[World] Snowfall Undermoon : [don wanna, don wannaaa! big bro windy’s got someone else now… I want big bro windy!]

[World] Wind-walking The World : [shut up snowfall]

[World] Heartless : [snowfall undermoon, you disgusting ladyboy!]

[World] Mu Li In Love : [sang yu’s not late! Big brother Li treated you so well, yet this is how you repay him?!]

[World] Godly Tycoon : [Seeking death?]

Translator’s Corner:

Translator: No, there is no wikipedia in China. They have Baidu, and their equivalent of the slang “Uncle Wiki” is like “Mama Du”. I opted to switch for the more familiar term though.

Editor: Uncle Wiki? This little one only knows Google-sensei! *clings to sensei’s golden thigh* ❣╰(⸝⸝⸝´꒳`⸝⸝⸝)╯❣

Translate Checker: Not sure if you guys got this joke here:

[Party]Snowfall Undermoon : [xi what?]

[Party] Crabapple Undermoon : [li]

[Party] Windsong Undermoon : [uneducated]

Basically, Snowfall is trying to read the name 兮澧 (Xi Li) and doesn’t know what 澧 (Li) is, so he asks “xi what?” The character 澧 (Li) is pretty uncommon in the Chinese language. I looked it up and it’s the #5,164 on the list of most common Chinese characters in order of frequency. To put that in perspective, knowing 3,000 characters gets you to 99.2% comprehension. But literate speakers will generally know 5,000 to 8,000 characters. 

  1. Just try to put an advertisement jingle here somewhere. As long as it’s got that vibe, you’ve got it right.
  2. In case you forgot (or I never used this term before), this is a short form for alternate. As people’s alternate accounts are usually lower levelled than their main accounts, most low levelled characters are just referred to as alts. At least, in Chinese.

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 …

    Thanks for the chapter! Let's be honest here, I'll never be able to learn to read Chinese. Too many similar characters, unstated, hidden meanings... & I have more of an auditive, impressions linked, memory than visual...

    For how long did she chase INKS around? A week's worth of time isn't that bad to return, but he really got what he deserved lmao. What's the irl BG of Shi Sheng in this world? She died or was accused in-game and died irl?
