My Doomsday Territory - Chapter 8
After the construction of the pub, the icon for the newly built pub displayed a glowing exclamation point. In the first order tab, it shows an introduction to the pub functions.
He has built the pub in-game before. But now, after all, he has done so in reality. Tang Yu is worried the rules will change and he wouldn’t know about these key differences. So, he’s glad he just happens to find an introduction to the pub functions.
Without hesitation, Tang Yu clicked on the introduction to the pub function.
[In the pub, the Lord has the right to use the free adventurer summoning once a day. After using the free summoning right, the subsequent summoning cost will be 500 units of source crystal to summon another adventurer.]
[The adventurer classes produced by the summoning are divided into D, C, B, A and beyond A-class. The higher the class, the higher the growth attribute will be for the adventurer. But contrarily, the higher the adventurer class, the lower the probability of summoning. Levelling the pub can also improve the probability of summoning a higher class adventurer.]
[There are five basic professions for adventurers: warrior, mage, cleric, assassin, gunner and summoner—Strength isn’t fixed based on the adventurer profession or class. The first-level pub can help summon up to level five awakened ones and lay the foundation for peak adventurers. Levelling the pub can increase the upper-level limit and strength of the summoned adventurer.]
[After summoning the adventurer, the lord is given the choice on whether or not to recruit the adventurer according to any requirement. In order to recruit, the lord must sign a contract with the adventurer. The first-level pub contract column only has space available for three followers. Levelling the pub increases this limit for follower contracts.]
[For the first summoning, the lord is guaranteed to summon an adventurer above B-class.]
Tang Yu is relieved to discover the rules aren’t much different from those found in the game.
One might wonder why he chose the pub for his first building. This is because the pub will be his greatest reliance in the present!
In particular, because of the benefits of the initial recruitment. The first summoning will guarantee an adventurer above B-class. It’s exciting just thinking about it.
Tang Yu is very familiar with this random draw game. Even though it says above B-class, there will never be an A-class or S-class drawn. Even a first order B-class adventurer will already be of great aid to him.
B-class may sound ordinary, but when he saw his first A-class adventurer in the game, he learned how rare it was to summon one.
In this particular instance, when the game system has come to reality, Tang Yu speculates the system classification may be similar to class divisions by modern civilization in the doomsday. This just means the class detection, in reality, is still relatively backwards. It can only barely measure the general level of the class for first order awakened ones. The current measure cannot specifically give a clear class division for any first order awakening.
He originally didn’t even awaken the lowest classification, E-class. Most awakened ones are D-class. Perhaps only the favoured sons of heaven will have a class beyond B-class. Besides, an adventurer is equipped with a profession, which has skills, and also a complete profession system. With only this reliance, summoned adventurers can completely flatten an awakened one who doesn’t know anything in reality.
Tang Yu cast off his mixed thoughts and focused on the following summoning ceremony.
Tang Yu took a deep breath, opened the system and selects the summoning option.
In the middle of the pub, a huge circular array immediately appeared which depicts dense and numerous runes.
The runes are like a pointer, constantly rotating and combining continuously. The sparkling light radiates around the array like an aperture of the universe which is slowly shrinking.
An adventurer is being summoned!
The adventurer will soon be summoned. It’s unknown what strength or profession will be drawn during the summoning!
Tang Yu held his breath!
The aperture shrinks until it becomes microscopic before a purple light bursts out.
Purple? Purple light!
Suddenly, Tang Yu’s heart beats twice as fast. He shamefully prays in his heart.
White light represents D-class.
Green light represents C-class.
Blue light represents B-class.
Purple light represents…
This class is definitely A!
The purple light immediately turns into a human phantom. The adventurer is wearing what looks to be a tattered old cloak with the figure still being unclear. But Tang Yu continued carefully observing for a while longer before realizing this figure should be of a female adventurer.
“Ttiring! Adventurer Elaine, Class A, Profession: Mage. Is the lord willing to sign a follower contract with this person?”
Needless to say…
In an old dilapidated wooden house, a cloaked woman was sitting on an equally dilapidated wooden bed. She is holding an old book in her hand and was absorbed in reading it.
This is Elaine’s home and she has no other family.
These lonely days have gone past for several years. From the beginning to the present, Elaine has become accustomed to such days. For her, no matter how good the home environment, it wouldn’t be as important as the book in her hand.
This is a book for basic spells.
Elaine found it under her bed. Apart from her parents’ belongings, this is the only thing in the family house which belongs to her.
A shrill alarm sounded throughout the city. Elaine was stunned, then a sad expression appeared on her face.
This alarm only sounds when the black wave strikes. She is very familiar with the sound as if it has already been imprinted on her soul.
Three years ago, the same alarm sounded as the black wave struck. During that time, her parents were both working outside the city, only to never return again.
That year, she became an orphan, and her originally happy home became more and more dilapidated from that moment on.
During her grief, Elaine awakened and realized she had an elemental power. To her surprise, she found she could use ice elemental abilities. This is the power of a mage. A mage is powerful and noble, and their status towers above that of ordinary warriors.
However, the ability to skillfully use the ice element is only a prerequisite for a mage, while Elaine has no way of learning any of the relevant spells.
In this city, all she knows is only the city lord owns spell books. Elaine knows how precious these books are and knows she cannot acquire these books unless she swears her allegiance to the city lord. However, the city lord is an aristocrat who holds extreme beliefs. He has always believed that only aristocrats with noble blood flowing through their veins can master the power of spells.
Elaine shakes her head at this belief and can only resign herself to surviving alone in the slums.
Without a stable source of income, while also being young and alone, Elaine has survived a very harsh life in the slums. This place is where people eat each other alive. Fortunately, she has already awakened, and her perception ability is higher than most ordinary people. So gradually, she is able to adapt to a place like the slums.
Until one day, she found a broken magic book under the floor of her dilapidated bed.
The contents of the magic book are intermittent, and Elaine has no foundation in magic spells. But her comprehension of magic is still advancing by leaps and bounds while reading it. She now understands how to cast first order spells.
Elaine breathed out a sigh and walked out of the house.
She puts on a large cloak with a hood to cover her whole body. After living in the slums for several years, this has become her ingrained habit. There are many good and bad people mixed in this place. The best way for a girl who lives alone to survive in this place is to hide their figure.
The slum area is located at the outermost part of the city. Looking around, it is cluttered with many houses. Further away in the distance, there are the towering city walls. Elaine can see many soldiers running frantically to their designated spots.
Outside the city wall is a sky of grey. For as long as she can remember, the world outside has always been this dark shade of grey. Elaine kept her most valuable possession, the old book, on her person. Nothing of value was left in her home. After a moment of thought, she first decides to take a look at the situation.
At this time, because of the alarm, the surroundings are a mess with many people aimlessly running around.
All of a sudden.
A dazzling fire broke out in the distance, and puffs of smoke rose into the sky while accompanied by a rumble. The towering city wall has collapsed!
Elaine’s eyes are aghast. In her impression, the wall was eternal and indestructible. Even during the bitter defensive battle three years ago, the city wall had not fallen. But at this time, when the black wave struck, the city wall immediately collapsed.
