Chapter 55: Leaving the Beginner Village
Carrying a large amount like 1000 gold coins, Ye Tian Xie could not help but feel more energetic. But thinking about the astronomical prices of the heaven defying items, he could not help but sigh as he walked back in the direction of the village head.
“Hello village head.”
“Oh! Brave young man, have you finished your preparations? Do you need me to send you to the Lost Continent now, it’s there you will truly begin. I believe that your name will spread throughout the land very soon.” Once the village head saw him, he said while laughing.
“Not right now.” Ye Tian Xie shook his head, an honest look appeared on his face as he said, “Village head, there are a few things I want to ask you, if it’s convenient for you, I hope you can answer me.”
“He, he, if you have any questions then ask them, if I know the answer I’ll tell you.” The village head had the same face as before as he laughed. The “Confidence” favorability grade was not as simple as it seemed. Just as he said, he would tell anything he knew to Ye Tian Xie.
“In the north side of the village, there is an old woman with both her legs petrified under a withered old tree, village head must know her……Who is she? Where did she come from?” Ye Tian Xie asked.
Unexpectedly, the village head shook his head and said, “Her background is a mystery even in my Beginner Village. Even when I was born, she was already there, she has been sitting there for who knows how many years. And she’s always refused to talk to others, we’ve asked her many times who she was but she had never replied to us……and whenever we talk to her she would always only ask for wolf eyes. No one knows what she collects the wolf eyes for, but, the blacksmith Lao Wang’s wife once said, she could be using those wolf eyes to help relieve the strange seal on her legs.”
“Oh, so it’s like that.” Chu Tian slowly nodded his head, he still didn’t learn anything.
“I’ve heard that Wang Tie Jiang’s little child Xiao Ming was taken by a giant bat demon not long ago, where did that bat demon come from? Where did it fly off to?” Ye Tian Xie asked the next question. The hidden quest of the Beginner Village, he had no reason not to complete it before leaving the Beginner Village.
“This……” The village head hesitated slightly, then with a deep sigh, he emotionally said, “Indeed it is like this, Old Wang’s family’s child was taken by a giant bat demon. But, the bat demon is no longer in the Beginner Village, it’s already returned to the Lost Continent, Xiao Ming is also…..Ai.”
“Our Beginner Village has always been peaceful, isolated from the world. This giant bat demon appearing here was a terrifying incident. Afterwards, Yuan Que told me, that giant bat demon is one of the demon henchmen under the Eight Demon Kings and that it escaped from the Tower of Destiny after the Moment of Destiny went missing. But the method it used to come here and the reason why it came here……no one knows.” The village head shook his head as he spoke. This was one of the mysteries no one in Beginner Village 60001 could solve.
Ye Tian Xie thought for a bit before suddenly saying, “Then that means……there must be a way to come to the Beginner Village from the Lost Continent, isn’t that right?”
The village head was startled, “This…..indeed seems to be the case……”
Ye Tian Xie’s face filled with satisfaction. It seems like, the «Destiny» world really wouldn’t create a quest that was impossible to finish. But regardless of whether it was the withered old woman’s strange quest, helping the blacksmith Lao Wang find his son and reunite his family, or the heaven defying items in the Beginner Village item shop……All of these, first required one to find the way to return to the Beginner Village from the Lost Continent.
There had to be a way, there was a glimmer of hope!
“Village head, I no longer have anything to take care of here, please send me to the Lost Continent. That demon bat could find a way to come to the Beginner Village from the Lost Continent, therefore, this might not be forever, perhaps one day I may also find a way to come back to the Beginner Village.” Ye Tian Xie smiled as he said.
“Oh? Ha, ha, ha, ha! Good……Your words give me a sense of anticipation. Alright, I will now send you to the Lost Continent, staying here will only limit your abilities, there, you can obtain an advanced job and become a genuine brave warrior…..But before you go, let me help you advance your abilities a bit.”
A mix of yellow and white light appeared in the village head’s palm, and he sprinkled it onto Ye Tian Xie’s body. A clear prompt was heard in Ye Tian Xie’s ears:
“Ding……The Beginner Village 60001 village head has promoted your “Harvesting” skill to intermediate level, you can now harvest higher level items from monster corpses and special areas.”
There were many life skills available in the Beginner Village, beside the Harvesting skill, there was also the Herb Gathering skill, the Mining skill, the Forging skill, and etc. You can also easily learn these on the Lost Continent. Ye Tian Xie only had the “Harvest” technique as his only life skill, the rest he was too lazy to learn. Life skills could be graded from low to high as Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, Immortal, Heavenly, God, and Sacred levels. The level of life skills were harder to increase than player levels, the village head helping him increase his harvest skill to intermediate level helped save him 10 days worth of time.”
“Thank you village head.”
“There are five main cities on the Lost Continent, each one is named after a celestial body, respectively they are Heavenly Sun City, Heavenly Moon City, Heavenly Star City, Heavenly Stellar City, and Heavenly Mystic City. And in the middle of the Lost Continent, there is also the Lost Continent Imperial City. It is the largest city on the Lost Continent and the highest authority, you otherworlders can only go there after you have reached level 50. But the Imperial City is also the closest city to the Tower of Destiny, so it bears the brunt of the demonic qi drifting out of the Tower of Destiny, right now I have no idea if it is……Alright, time for you to go. I anticipate the day your name goes down in the history of the Lost Continent!”
A beam of white light covered Ye Tian Xie’s body and his surroundings turned completely white, his body then disappeared from the Beginner Village.
His vision cleared and when Ye Tian Xie opened his eyes, his surroundings had became a whole new world.
The Beginner Village, it was the starting point of every new player. When he left the Beginner Village he was level 11. Right now, there were countless players that have already left the Beginner Village to receive their job advancement, but he was the only one to have passed the Abyss Level trial and to reach level 11…….perhaps he was also the only one.
From to level up from level 10 to level 11 required a large amount of EXP, but Ye Tian Xie took advantage of Abyss Level Trial to gain a large amount of EXP. In other words, Ye Tian Xie should be first in terms of levels. And the list ranking for this virtual world would open up after a certain amount of people finish their first Job Advancement.
