Global Game: AFK In The Zombie Apocalypse Game Novel - Chapter 1177
1177 An Oath
Sandy swallowed his saliva and continued to speak in a low voice, “That’s right. The Saint left behind 12 inheritances here, and the person who received the inheritance would have to bear the responsibility of eliminating the abyssal demons.”
Tang Mingyue asked anxiously, “Where? How do we accept the inheritance?”
“Uh… If I’m not mistaken, it should be…”
Sandy took half a step forward as he spoke and tried to press on the stone tablet. A dim yellow light emitted from the stone tablet, shrouding Sandy within.
Sandy tried to sense it.
“Oh… There is a price to pay for accepting the inheritance. The one who accepted the inheritance had to make an oath to completely destroy the ‘demons’ sealed in the abyss, otherwise… Otherwise…”
Tang Mingyue was anxious.
Why was he still hesitating at this time?
“Otherwise, what will happen?”
“I don’t know. It seems to be a very serious punishment?”
Sandy frowned and immediately said, “I, Sandy, am willing to make an oath to completely destroy the ‘demon’ sealed underground. If I fail, I am willing to pay any price.”
Was he crazy? Any price?
Hearing Sandy swear on the spot, Tang Mingyue was shocked.
Were all NPCs so bold these days?
He didn’t even know what the punishment was and just went straight to it? In some games, one could casually make an oath, but in other games, one would have to pay a price for it.
Obviously, this game belonged to the latter.
The stone tablet shone brightly. The yellow light enveloped Sandy and finally condensed into a single point, appearing on Sandy’s forehead before slowly fading away.
Sandy opened his eyes.
The game prompt also flashed on Fang Heng’s retina.
[Hint: The player trial team has cracked one of the secrets of the Barbaric World and has received an additional 10 hours of trial time.]
[Hint: Your territory’s NPC Sandy has received an unknown inheritance, and some of his attributes have been optimized. Alchemy research, intermediate alchemy, alchemy archaeology, alchemy forgery, ancient alchemy instruments (click here for more details).]
[Hint: Your territory’s NPC Sandy’s character rating has been upgraded.]
Sandy looked at his hands and then turned back to look at Fang Heng and the others, his face filled with excitement.
“Wow! Fang Heng, it’s real! The legacy is real. I can feel the infusion of knowledge! Amazing, is alchemy that strong?”
Sandy was so excited that he was like a child who had just gotten a new toy. He could not help but mumble to himself.
Tang Mingyue and Ed looked at each other.
They felt that this NPC was too crazy!
Give it a try?
How dare he try such a strange thing?
It’s true that he had gained strength, but there will be a punishment if he couldn’t complete the follow-up mission!
Ed knew the game’s routine very well. The greater the temptation, the greater the hidden danger.
The punishment might be at the cost of his life!
Ed asked in a deep voice, “Mr. Sandy, what about the punishment? May I ask what is the punishment for failing the oath?”
Sandy seemed to have just realized that there was a punishment. He tried to feel it and shrugged, “I still don’t know.”
He didn’t know?
Ed looked at Sandy, who looked nonchalant and really wanted to ask if he was not afraid.
“What are you afraid of? I’m a person blessed by the God of Art. I’ll be fine.”
Sandy waved his hand and beckoned Fang Heng, “Fang Heng, come on. The God of Art also thinks highly of you. He will bless you. This kind of oath is nothing.”
This NPC was amazing!
Tang Mingyue held her forehead to express her speechlessness.
“Yes, let me take a look.”
Fang Heng had already gotten used to Sandy’s personality. He walked forward and mimicked Sandy’s actions, reaching out his hand to touch the stone tablet.
[Hint: The player has discovered the Saint’s inheritance. The remaining inheritors: 9 people.]
[Hint: If the player chooses to accept the Saint’s inheritance and make an oath, the player can obtain a passive skill-inheritance of the Saint of Alchemy.]
Skill: Inheritance of the Saint of Alchemy (passive effect).
Skill description: The speed of setting up alchemy magic arrays is increased by 10%. The final success rate is increased by an additional 10%. The final success rate of all spells cast by magic arrays is increased by an additional 10%.
Calculation formula: Final success rate*(1+10%).
[Hint: The player can choose an additional reward from the following rewards.]
[Option 1: Enlightenment. When the player’s elementary alchemy reaches the maximum level, it will automatically be upgraded to intermediate alchemy. When intermediate alchemy reaches the maximum level, it will automatically be upgraded to advanced alchemy.]
[Option 2: Diligence. Before master-level alchemy, the player will receive all alchemy experience points*5.]
[Option 3: Blessing. Obtained skill-alchemy blessing. When making an alchemy magic array, the player can choose to increase the initial success rate of the alchemy by 25% (the initial success rate of alchemy must not be lower than 15%); This skill can be used 10 times and cannot be stacked. After 10 uses, this skill will disappear (upgrading formula: initial success rate +25%).]
Fang Heng looked at the game hints and pondered.
Strange, there were still nine inheritances left?
There should originally be 12 inheritances, and excluding the one that Sandy had just received, there should be 11 left.
It seemed like there were two other people who had already received the inheritance before they came here.
Fang Heng then turned his attention back to the rewards of the Saint’s inheritance.
Putting aside the three options, just the passive skills of the inheritance alone were a huge profit!
An additional 10% increase in success rate could save a lot of alchemy materials.
There were also three branch options.
Fang Heng read the instructions carefully and immediately eliminated the second and third options.
The second option was useful, but it was not very effective.
He had a zombie clone, so he could earn experience points slowly.
As for the third option, although it was good, it had a limited number of uses and was very unpleasant.
It would be more convenient to choose Option 1, and he could push his alchemy level to the maximum to become the advanced level!
There were many rewards, but as for the punishment…
Fang Heng didn’t let the rewards get to his head. Instead, he calmed down and carefully read the description of the punishment.
He didn’t seem to have seen the relevant description.
Judging from the oath, the punishment would most likely only come true after the oath was broken.
Thinking about it carefully, could this mission be completed?
What was there to be afraid of?
Now, he could confirm that the demon was related to the Hila virus.
The blood in his body had the ability to restrain demons, and with the superbug that was the sacred tree, he was not afraid of using force.
Not to mention, there would be a huge reward for killing the final abyssal demon!
Moreover, only by accepting the inheritance would one be able to obtain the alchemy magic array that could annihilate demons.
If his guess was correct, there was a high chance that the subsequent stage of the mission would only be triggered after accepting the Saint’s inheritance.
Why was he acting so cowardly here?
What a joke!
Fang Heng made a decision immediately after a few thoughts.
“I, Fang Heng, am willing to make an oath to completely destroy the ‘demon’ sealed underground. If I fail, I am willing to pay any price.”
