Scp Gacha System In A Cultivation World Book 1 Chapter 15
On her journey to her new home, Jing was relaxing with Li Li as they flew above the skies. She looked down at the endless color of green below her. The Immortal Forest reaches much farther than Jing originally thought it did. She was certain that if she didn't have Li Li when she first came here, she could have been stuck in that forest for the rest of her life! Even when they were so high up, she still couldn't see any end in sight to this forest. It is said that some of the truly strong beasts that inhabit the deep parts of the Immortal Forest are strong enough to go to head with the current sect leader of the Golden Serpent Sect.
But this was just a rumor that Jing heard amongst her fellow martial peers. Not that she could really imagine the power that the sect leader has nor the beasts that live deep in the Immortal Forest. The strongest thing she's felt so far was the old ghost in the ring that she got rid of back in the ruins. The second would be Elder Change, the elderly looking examiner. The long white beard and hair tied up in a pony tail, wrinkled skin with a sharp gaze, eyes filled with such wisdom and strength. He's an array elder as well. So, Jing might have to call him master in the future.
She looked over to see Bing enjoying the view on top of the winged snake like a majority of the others. She also sensed a particular gaze directed at herself from up ahead on the beast. This wasn't the first time she felt someone's gaze on her since they began flying. Most of the time it was because of Li Li and trying to figure out who could be the owner of such a handsome spirit beast, but this time the gaze stayed on her longer than usual. Just about as long as the time when she was talking to Bing earlier.
She innocently looked over and briefly met eyes with Shang Zhai. He immediately turned his head and looked off into the distance. Jing inwardly smirked before going back about her business of relaxing and petting Li Li's unbelievably soft feathers.
[Multiple Missions Completed!]
[Rewards: 3 rare tickets, 100,000 yuan, 5 low-quality spirit stones, Book of Qi]
[You failed to kill over 500 competitors during the test!]
[Help the arrogant young master regain some face! Train Tang Wuying till he's capable of fighting evenly with Gong Jun or surpassing him in strength! Or weaken Tang Wuying by the time of the duel that he loses all popularity and credibility.]
[Rewards: Group tab is unlocked, martial technique: Snake Fist, 3 rare tickets.]
Her mission rewards automatically transferred into her system's inventory. When she went in to look she noticed the familiar lock symbol on the bottom right of the tickets, indicating that she can't bring it out of her inventory and can only be used through the system.
'The being that made this system is pretty sharp. I planned on taking the tickets out of my inventory and refining them into legendary tickets but it got one over me instead by not allowing me to have contact with the tickets at all.' Jing smiled at being checkmated by the system's creator.
'It seems they do not care about what I can do with the other rewards though or the limits I can raise with the others aren't worthy enough to be acknowledged by the system's creator.' Jing guessed.
The money would be useful once she returns back to the city for whatever reason. She found out one way to never be broke again by using 914's refining abilities. But that can wait till later, she has no use for monetary needs as of right now. The book however, was a name she recognized. She went to the system's menu and went to the ally tab before clicking on Bing's name.
[Name: Ai Bing]
[Rank: Qi Gathering 2 Peak]
[Occupation: Martial Artist]
[Techniques: Devil's Arms (Initial Realm), Devil's Physique (Initial Realm), Swift Devil (Initial Realm), ... ]
[Cultivation Method: Book of Qi]
[Loyalty: 40% (Scared to death of you but has come to terms that his life of freedom is now forfeit.)]
'Ah so it was a cultivation technique... And considering that it's the same one Bing has it must be the most common or weakest one there is.' Jing figured.
She was not too worried about the ranking of things though. With 914's ability, even a pile of dirt could turn into a pile of diamonds! So, this common cultivation method has the same value as a rare and one-of-a-kind cultivation book! The advantage Jing has over others can't even be considered to be fair. If the standard cultivator was said to be on stage 5, then Jing would be on stage 100! To even try and compare her to those around her would be the first mistake to make!
Jing decided to wait till she got settled at the sect before officially becoming a cultivator. There's no reason to gain attention here by breaking into the first realm. She's gained enough by attracting the feelings of Shang Zhai and somehow passing the ridiculously difficult recruitment test without even being a cultivator. Even by doing the bare minimum, she still caught the eye of the elders and some of her fellow peers. But as far she knows, they only believe her to be an incredibly lucky mortal with a tamed spirit beast.
'It's good enough for now. The only other way I could've attracted less attention was if I didn't have Li Li or was already a cultivator before I took the test.' Jing thought before going into her inventory.
She decided to use her 3 rare tickets. She didn't think there was much of a point of waiting till later to use them. It's not as if her luck would increase if she decided to wait to use them until she was in trouble. That's just wishful thinking and naivety. The world doesn't go the way you wish it to just because you're in a tight situation.
[A Penalty Is In Effect!]
[Reduced luck in next gacha spin!]
'Reduced luck? I guess that means I'll most likely get some worthless items.' Jing was about to shrug her shoulders and continue to use them anyway but suddenly stopped herself.
'Next gacha spin? Doesn't that mean if I use only 1 ticket right now, then it would only lower my luck with that ticket instead of all of them?" She asked herself.
Jing realized that only she could answer her questions. The system sure wasn't responding to her. So instead of using all 3 rare tickets together like she originally planned, she used only a single ticket.
[Host has received Cerulean Venus Flytrap seed]
She then used her next 2 rare tickets together.
[Host has received Tiger Boomerang, SCP 4820]
'Another SCP? How lucky...' She commented with a content look on her face.
She doubted she was going to find much use out of the seed and boomerang but it wouldn't feel right to her if she doesn't use everything in her disposal to their fullest. Jing believed that everything has some value and with 914's ability inside her, that belief was enforced even more. Didn't she have a mission to help Tang Wuying win some duel in a couple months? She could think of some situation where she could give it to him but to get him proficient enough in wielding it to the point of not get wiped out by Gong Jon, the genius martial artist that made her knees quiver even after her refinement. She'll have to do some planning to get everything just right.
Jing didn't plan on weakening Tang Wuying and having him lose horribly. In fact, she plans on recruiting him to her side in these few months. Even though making him lose would be easier and she would still get the mission rewards regardless of what she does, having the only son of Yellow Jade City's ruler on her side can only bring benefits to her. His personality might be horrible but it isn't like she plans on being friends with the boy, just using him until he has no further use to her.
Her first gacha spin could be used if she grows a garden, she could place the Cerulean Venus Flytrap seed inside to defend it from thieves and pests. She still had numerous plants and herbs inside her storage ring that she could plant so, making a garden isn't such a bad idea. She'd have to learn how to take care of a garden though. Hopefully there's a book or place inside the sect where she can learn about it.
Her final reward made her hesitant. She was deliberating over whether to sell this back to the system or not for the 50,000 points it would give her. She personally had no use for this SCP but then again there was nothing inside the system store she could really get even if she sold it. The only thing inside the store was a mug, steel sword, fishing rod, recovery pills, a mysterious egg, and SCP-914. She couldn't even pay half of what SCP-914 was worth with 50,000 store points. It costed a whole 5,000,000 store points!
But then she realized that keeping it wouldn't be such a bad thing either. According to the system, she could gift her allies SCPs in her inventory once their loyalty has reached 100%. And having an undying ally would be pretty useful. So, Jing chose to keep it instead of selling it to the system.
"We've arrived!" Elder Mo shouted with pride in his deep burly voice.
