I’m Actually a Cultivation Bigshot - Chapter 802 - The Rigged Game, Secretly Working Together
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! The treasures kept springing out, and in no time at all, a mountain of them was piled up in front of Dragin. Their combined glow nearly blinded everyone else.
The deputy master of the Shinto Pavilion was dumbfounded. He kept asking himself, ‘Why is this happening? How can this be?!’
The Ascension Sect’s big elder’s face fell. “This whole game’s rigged! It’s so obvious that those people are getting preferential treatment!”
“Gah! It’s either death or injury for us while they’re giving away treasures like it’s nothing. Where’s the fairness in all this?”
“What happened to the rules of the game?”
Their faces could not stop twitching, so heartbreaking were their experiences that they nearly burst out in tears. There was Xiao Chengfeng who got one treasure, Yang Jing who got two, and Dragin who got a mountain of them! However, the most maddening thing was Dragin actually turned her nose up at the treasures, and because of that, the river kept adding one treasure after another to the pile to appease her.
“Oh my god, is there no end to this?” Dragin was at the end of her patience. “Fine, I’ll accept the treasures if you’ll just stop.” There were no fruits amongst the treasures but she accepted them to end the whole thing quickly.
Finally, treasures stopped springing out of the river. Everyone became green-eyed monsters when they saw the abundance of treasures Dragin received.
“Out of the thirteen Origins Treasure, the lowest among them are fifth-grade treasures while the highest are seventh-grade treasures. Why, she’s even richer than the Shinto Pavilion!” said the deputy master of the Shinto Pavilion in a shaky voice.
The big elder of the Ascension Sect shook his head and said, “More like richer than the Shinto Pavilion and the Ascension Sect combined.”
“Where did these people come from? Do you all still remember how, at the entrance, they wiped out the Heavenless Devil Palace, and how the little girl’s shovel actually shattered the Purgatory Bell?” asked another elder in a thick voice.
“The Purgatory Bell was a sixth-grade Origins Treasure. The shovel looks like any other ordinary shovel but I bet it’s at least an eighth-grade treasure from the way it destroyed the bell!” said someone else.
The abundance of power of Origins in the Origins Realm made it possible for a wide variety of Origins Ultimate Treasures and miraculous medicines to be born. Every one of them could be assigned to a grade, one being the lowest and 10 being the highest. Anyone who had a treasure above the fifth-grade would become a force to be reckoned with, making even a half-step Wisdom Dictator seethe with jealousy.
“Hehe, that’s not the main point.” The deputy master of the Shinto Pavilion shook his head and said solemnly, “You all saw how she was unmoved by the Ultimate Treasures, and she only grudgingly accepted them to make the river stop. Do you know what this means?”
Everyone gasped at his question. They dared not even think about the implications.
“Not to mention, they could turn this Origins Pond of Holy Dimension around to their favor. I’m afraid wherever they come from isn’t a place we can imagine!” said big elder of the Ascension Sect solemnly.
“Actually, they’re from the Ancient Forbidden Area!” said Master Wind suddenly.
‘The Ancient Forbidden Area?’ Everyone’s heartbeat sped up. They were no strangers to these words.
The place was a taboo that was born countless years ago, claiming to hide the secret of the supreme powers of the Origins Realm. Not long ago, the Heaven Plundering Alliance led a team of people inside and found that the Origins had been cut off, making it a barren place. The power there was not as abundant as the Origins Realm, not to mention that its portal had been sealed up. So, how was it possible for Nanan and the others to be that powerful?
“To tell you the truth, we set up this trap for them. After so many years, people from the Ancient Forbidden Area finally came out. I don’t need to say more, but it’s obvious that these people are hiding a huge secret behind them!” said Master Wind.
“Judging by their battle skills, their bizarre treasures, and their ability to change the rules of this Origins Pond of Holy Dimension, any one of them would give us enough power to rise to a new height!” added Master Fire.
Instantly, everyone’s breathing and hearts quickened at the thought of getting their hands on whatever Nanan and the others possessed.
The deputy master of Shinto Pavilion’s eyes flickered non-stop. “It seems that the rumor is true, that the Ancient Forbidden Area does hold a secret that would enable one to become the supreme power!”
“Why are you telling us all this?” asked the big elder of the Ascension Sect.
“We should work together. It’s obvious that the game’s rigged and the only way to beat them is for us to join forces,” said Master Wind bluntly.
The deputy master of the Shinto Pavilion was silent for a moment. He then shook his head and said, “With all due respect, we might not even beat them even if we join forces.”
“According to my observation, a half-step Wisdom Dictator should be able to hold his own ground in this game. Besides, in addition to the many crises, there are often other possibilities, so we’ll only need to exploit those possibilities and do our best. The rest is up to god,” analyzed Master Wind.
“Okay, let’s do it.” The others agreed without hesitation and turned their malicious gaze toward Nanan and the others.
The game continued and it was the Shinto Pavilion’s elder’s turn. He carefully rolled the dice, receiving a number two. He advanced two squares and a golden treasure chest appeared in front of him. All the colors drained out of his face the moment he saw the treasure chest. The way the first person died was still vivid in his mind.
“Luckily, you found a treasure chest. When you opened it, you found that it was a command talisman paper. Using it, you can command any player to take three steps back.”
“This is some good stuff! A talisman paper like this is enough to kill a person in a game!’ Immediately, the sects who had joined forces exchanged glances and started to strategize, trying to come up with a way to beat Nanan and the others at their own game. Due to the unpredictability of the game, they decided they must find a way to kill them with one strike.
“Use it on Yang Jing. He’ll land on the square where the poisonous swamp is located if he takes three steps back. There’s no way he can get out of it, so he’ll die for sure!”
In the end, the Shinto Pavilion’s elder pointed at Yang Jing and said, “I command him to take three steps back.”
Immediately, Yang Jing rose into the air and landed three squares back.
“You entered the poisonous swamp and are continuously eroded by poisonous gas, making your body extremely weak,” said the toy man.
“Hahaha, you’re done for!” Both Master Wind and Master Fire laughed at the same time, ecstatic at the fact that they finally dealt a successful blow to their enemies.
The others also smiled, certain that it would be easier to deal with Nanan and the others now that one of them had fallen.
However, in the next moment, they saw Yang Jing take out a garlic clove calmly.
“I hate eating garlic the most, but the expert said that eating garlic’s good for detoxifying the body. Well, here goes nothing,” he said with a frown.
