Chapter 115: Fishing for Snakes

The remaining scattered zombies outside of Stone horse village were killed until nightfall

Yue Zhong found over two hundred survivors in the process of clearing out Stone Horse Village, replenishing their population. Yue Zhong’s sphere of influence increased to five hundred survivors. The majority of survivors found were so starved they didn’t look human.

Recovering Stone Horse Village, each of Yue Zhong’s small squadrons experienced a trial by fire, and they began to change into elite troops.

At night, Yue Zhong took inventory of his goods attained today after taking a bath.

Several equipment dropped by the God and Devil World system was recovered by Yue Zhong, then he started to distribute it.

In the battle of recovering Stone Horse Village, Yue Zhong received six skill books, thirty white treasure boxes, and a green treasure box.

The six skill books were: Rank 1 Fireball skill book, three Rank 1 Acceleration skill books, Rank 2 Language Mastery skill book, and Rank 3 Gravity Control Skillbook.

“Rank 1 skill Acceleration: This skill consumes five points of stamina. After using this skill, one will attain 10 agility for 30 seconds.”

“Rank 2 skill Language Mastery: This is a passive skill. After studying, one will automatically be proficient in three national languages, and proficiently master their written languages.”

“Rank 3 skill Gravity Control: This is an active skill. After using the skill, one can manipulate a single target within two hundred meters, or targets within the surrounding ten meters. The amount of gravity pressure received by the target depends on the user’s level of Spirit, Power, Stamina, and *level. Releasing the skill consumes 10 points of Stamina and 10 points of Spirit. The skill also consumes 1 Stamina and 1 Spirit each second.”

[TL: It actually says “body’s degree of strength” for *level. That isn’t an actual stat, so I think it implies the level of the user.]

Yue Zhong looked at the Rank 3 Gravity Control skill book that came from the L2. He contemplated a moment, then placed the book into his storage ring.

Yue Zhong held the Language Mastery skill book and thought a moment. The Skill book turned into a flowing light sinking into his sea of knowledge.

“What three languages would you like to know?”

[TL: I would pay SOOO MUCH FOR THIS!]

As soon as the skill book entered Yue Zhong, a voice immediately appeared in Yue Zhong’s mind.

“English, Russian, and Japanese!”

Yue Zhong thought a moment, and strands of light interwove in his sea of knowledge, condensing into a mysterious rune.

Yue Zhong felt a huge amount of knowledge rush forth into his brain as soon as the rune formed, then in a moment it rested.

Massaging his head, Yue Zhong opened the treasure boxes, starting with the white boxes. The thirty white treasure boxes were quickly opened. Inside there were four Imitation Tang Swords, a pair of strength shoes, and a pair of power gloves. The rest were all empty.

Yue Zhong looked at the thirty white treasure boxes dropping so few equipment and thought a moment: “Luck is very important when opening white treasure boxes! Fortunately I found four Imitation Tang Swords, so it’s not too bad.”

Yue Zhong finally opened the green treasure box. A green light flashed, and a pair of leather boots flashing with a bronze colored light appeared before his eyes.

“Rank 3 item, Green Acceleration Boots: Increases Agility by 10 after equipping.”

“Such a treasure!” Yue Zhong’s eyes flashed with joy as he looked at the Green Acceleration Boots. Putting on the leather boots was like starting up the Rank 1 Acceleration skill.

A good piece of equipment can enormously increase a person’s strength. Yue Zhong is extremely clear about this.

After putting those items into a bag, Yue Zhong finally hugged the savory Guo Yu and went to sleep.

The second day, Yue Zhong dispatched personnel to continue clearing out Stone Horse Village, and he made Chi Yang start to transport survivors from Always Bright Village.

Vehicle after vehicle started transporting Always Bright Village survivors into Stone Horse Village.

Yue Zhong took several subordinates and brought them near the river by Stone Horse Village. He used chicken after chicken to try and entice a mutated river snake.

“Is there nothing?”

After spending a whole day, Yue Zhong ran along the edge of both rivers without catching a single mutated river snake. He was a little disappointed.

Just when he was pulling the cord, and preparing to take people to leave, an enormous mutated river snake surged out from the tranquil waters. Its mouth was opened up towards Yue Zhong’s chicken.

Yue Zhong was overjoyed. He pulled on the cord, and brought the chicken back up onto the shore.

The mutated river snake also rushed out from the water to chase its prey. It chased after the chicken writhing its enormous body back and forth.

Yue Zhong looked at Guo Yu and Lu Wen when the snake swam on shore within one hundred meters, and he said: “Get to work!”

Guo Yu and Lu Wen immediately started casting their two skills. They entered into a spell chanting state, one using ice magic, and the other using fire magic.

Yue Zhong grabbed a type 81 rifle and started firing at the huge mutated river snake.

Bullet after bullet was immediately sent flying off of the snake’s skin, but the bullet’s enormous force still pained the mutated river snake.

The attack enraged the mutated river snake. It is the master of these waters, and was now receiving provocation. Naturally it rushed on towards Yue Zhong in a towering rage.

Yue Zhong fired his type 81 rifle at the mutated river snake, and continually enticed it away from Guo Yu’s and Lu Wen’s position.

The mutated river snake’s speed was enormously fast, and it quickly caught up to Yue Zhong.

At this time, Guo Yu and Lu Wen’s magic spells formed. A ball of fire and an ice cone shot out, heavily exploding onto the mutated river snake’s body.

Magic’s power is extremely enormous. Even though they were two level one skills, they skill created a fist-sized black scorched bloody hole, and a fist-sized bloody hole full of ice crumbles on the snake’s body.

The mutated river snake emitted an enormous wail. It turned its head towards Guo Yu and Lu Wen. Its eyes filled with anger, and it twisted towards the two.

At that time, Yue Zhong activated the skill Shadow Step. His speed suddenly soared. He rushed before the mutated river snake, and used the stinger to fire three shots at it.

Three bullets boomed into the snake’s body, blowing open another three fist sized holes.

After eating the pain, it actually turned towards the water to swim away.

Yue Zhong’s speed soared, and he appeared before the mutated river snake in a couple of flashes.

It immediately opened its huge mouth to bite at Yue Zhong.

Yue Zhong slightly shifted and started the skill Devil Flame. A scarlet red magic fire condensed in his hand. He cut into the the huge snake’s flank with his right hand. He created an enormous scar on that side of the snake, totally burning everything he touched away.

Yue Zhong rushed along the side of the mutated river snake, completely splitting open that side of the body. A huge amount of blood flowed out from the wound.

Receiving such heavy damage, the mutated river snake painfully struggled, collapsing paralyzed on the ground. A large experience orb sunk into Yue Zhong’s body.

“Congratulations, you have leveled up to 26. You have obtained 2 stat points.” A pleasing to the ear level up noise immediately appeared in Yue Zhong’s sea of knowledge.

    1. I feel like he should stop opening the white treasure boxes himself.
      It seems like since he is so high leveled that the boxes are usually empty. They weren’t empty as often as when he opened them at a lower level.

  1. Damn language mastery… Really need those skill book….. Learning Chinese, Japanese and Korean and read the Raw of other LN >.<

      1. And one one side between the rivers is a large mountain range blocking the entry for any enemy.
        So only one side of the village is actually open for entering easily.
        Thus defending that village is far easier than Always Bright Village that´s seated right in the open on a relatively flat area.

      1. Like Eric said, the XP isn’t shared. It only goes to whoever lands the last hit. He only needs to let forego two mutated beasts and let Lu Wen and Guo Yu kill them. At their level, killing a level 25+ mutated beast will probably result in gaining more than 10 levels. Which will make them eligible for the level 10 power up, hence making his entire team that much stronger

          1. “Yep mc is a fucking noob” oh right and I’m sure in his situation where he has what hundreds of people to take care of your gonna be one of the idiots who take the many months it’d take to get everyone to level 10? Let me remind you each S1 is considerably rare seeing as how in a hoard of 1000 zombies there was 12 and 1 S2 please shut the fuck up dumb as because by the time he’s done there would be some shit like S3 then guess what? They won’t be able to kill it leading to the mcs death like I said previously the author is doing a excellent job and even if he messes up sometimes he is still doing a 1000x better job then you ever could. Stop pressuring the translators into dropping the Novel cause that’s what you’re doing. I just hate stupid comments like yours on these websites who say shit without a 2nd thought.

    1. Didnt you read when he was in the old village and he brought the guys to level up? I mean there have been so many instances when he brings them out just to level them up. However the case of him to giving exp (last hit) to others, not gonna happen since he isn’t trying to be a hero or something.

      1. My complaint was more on Lu Wen’s and Guo’s levels. I mean, some of the people in the assault teams have Tang swords, which means that they get XP whenever they use them. But since Lu Wen and Guo aren’t in any of the assault teams, do they ever get to level up?

    1. Raws both say level 26. I’m guessing it is a mistake by the author. I haven’t translated far enough ahead to know if he skips a level the next time he levels up.

  2. Yue Zhong is getting only 2 stat point for each level. So little. I don’t think he will get higher stat point per level unless, he upgrade his job.

  3. What I´m actually disappointed in is that Yue choose those 3 languages as simple as that.
    He should have first ask for a list of all languages available and then choose from there.
    After all there might be a special / secret / ancient language of the God and Devil system that might be useful or neccessary for finding and learning ultra secret OP-skills.

    Also there might be a zombie language given the idea that there might be an intelligent zombie in the future.
    If he knew that zombie language then he could understand the zombies´ strategy and plans at that time.
    Or he would actually be to make a deal with the intelligent zombie leaders and therefore be ridding his village base off of the zombie threat – maybe he could even get a zombie corps serving him.

    But no he only chooses normal languages that he could have learned in the normal way, too, or someone of his subordinates might already know.
    Such a waste….

    1. Hello dumb ass. Those are the two most known languages English being the main language of the fucking world. Seeing as how 60% of the population practices it. Russian has a large territory and people also one of the leading languages. He’s also closer to Korean and Japanese people seeing as how he’s in CHINA not America. And about the zombie thing? Have you fucking seen any zombies talking? No they just rely on instincts please shut the fuck up with your pitiful knowledge for your being rude to the translators in my opinion

    2. Also if he could speak “zombie language” stupid idea btw who the hell says he’d be able to make them do things for him

    1. the limit was on active skills only for some reason im preaty sure he already learned 3 active skills but hes close to lvl 30

  4. Didn’t a couple of chapters ago when he went to the newbie village talk about factions? So is he gonna make one soon? Or go back anytime yet? Also they ever gonna implement parties?

    1. Can’t go back don’t even feel like explaining it clearly you haven’t been paying attention to the damn story
