Seized By The System Chapter 345
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The System Space, in the Draconic Penitentiary.
Fang Ning had already figured out who to send inside. At this point in time, who else but Brother Long Fan was unafraid of death?
As for the sinful souls in the penitentiary, he could not believe in them. If they failed, the fish would all swim back into the ocean.
Looking at the sparkling golden arch, he thought to himself, ‘Little Brother, who will go to hell if not you?
‘Besides, you won’t die anyway, so don’t worry.
‘Big Brother has already prepared a number of Dragon Clan Honey-flavoured Pills, Dragon Clan Salted Pills and Dragon Clan Vinegar Pills for you to ensure that you won’t go hungry.’
Having decided a suitable candidate, Fang Ning contacted Long Fan through the Internet. As expected, the moment Big Brother called, Long Fan readily agreed, as if showing off to someone. However, Fang Ning did not listen very attentively.
After this matter was settled, Fang Ning pondered and said to the System, “Sir, it’s time to clean up your family properties again”
The System immediately warned, “What do you mean clean up? My money is mine. Your money will also eventually become mine.”
Fang Ning vomited blood. This idiot accidentally revealed a secret. So it had long since considered his belongings as its own.
He instantly rebuked, “Can you have a little sense of crisis? Haven’t you heard the saying ‘life springs from sorrow and calamity; death comes from ease and pleasure’? The Lord of the Upper Realm has come to block our door. I need to know the enemy before I’m able to fight them.”
The System finally became obedient, “What do you want to know then? That useless book isn’t here. If it were, you could have just asked it to show you directly.”
Fang Ning said, “Strength level, experience number, main abilities, his skills”
“So you weren’t planning on asking how much money I have You should have said that sooner, I’ll give everything to you.”
Before Fang Ning had even finished speaking, the System had tossed a USB flash drive to him.
Fang Ning hurriedly caught it and wondered, “Why are you giving me this?”
“Everything you want is in there.”
System Notification: [Your network has been disconnected.]
After a moment of reflection, Fang Ning immediately understood, “That was easy. Alright, I’ll take a look first.”
He had been worried that the System would throw him a thick book. He was used to reading things on the computer.
Taking the USB drive, Fang Ning went back to the System Cyber Cafe and plugged it into a computer. Then, he found the relevant documents and started to peruse.
“Strength: Peak of Lake-level.
“Current experience points: 2,580,000,000 points.
“Abilities: Legendary Level ‘Dragonization Ability’, Legendary Level ‘Morality Technique’, Legendary Level ‘True Bodhi Tactics’, Master Level ‘Heavensward Sword Technique’, Master Level ‘Dragon Fist’…
Skills: Master Level Culinary, Master Level Carpentry, Master Level Crafting, Master Level Healing, Beginner Level Alchemy”
After browsing, Fang Ning felt slightly apprehensive, “Sigh, we used to be just fine. However, there’s suddenly a V10 player here. We V5 players are suddenly inadequate now…” (TN: V10 and V5 here are gaming terms. V stands for VIP, and the following number is the tier, meaning a V5 player is only a tier 5 VIP, while a V10 player is tier 10. Your tier is higher depending on how much you pay, where the more you pay, the higher the tier, as well as the better pay-to-win perks you get.)
“There are still many 0rmb players. What are you afraid of?” (TN: Again, 0rmb is a gaming term, which stands for 0 renminbi. They are used to refer to free-to-play players who don’t top up money to play the game.)
“Could you have a little more ambition? If you wanna stare, of course you have to stare at the strongest VIP.” Fang Ning said earnestly.
“So how are you planning to get to V10? I’m telling you now, I don’t have any experience points to spare. How about you ask that precious game book of yours to borrow you some?” The System had no worries at all.
Fang Ning was speechless, “My beloved has only worked for a few days. You should stop remembering just that one part of it. Let me think, what other instance dungeons are good for farming.”
The System kept quiet. As long as Fang Ning was seriously working, it never disturbed him.
After a while, Fang Ning was struck by inspiration.
He said to the System, “That Paradise Realm is a giant instance dungeon right? After Long Fan finishes checking it out, we’ll go in and farm there.”
The System said, “No.”
Fang Ning was shocked, “Why?”
The System said, “Of course, it’s because that’s the Lord’s nest. Besides, flesh bodies can’t enter. How about you make that precious game book go in instead? It shouldn’t have a problem with it. It’s been staying well in my System Space.”
Fang Ning hesitated, “We’ll wait until after Long Fan finishes investigating. Hand the body over to me first, I’ll go receive him. Oh, right, you need to place the exit outside. Although Long Fan is currently a soul, we can’t let him be captured into the penitentiary.”
The System said, “That’s easy. The entrance to the Paradise Realm will appear as long as I hit the temple block. I’ll just hit it another ten thousand times.”
‘Goddamn, that Zhi Nan really knows how to play.’ thought Fang Ning.
Of course, he did not know that for a regular Powerhouse, hitting the block once would send their soul directly into the Paradise Realm, where they would abandon themselves to pleasures and be unable to leave.
Sooner or later, their bodies will give up. Where would they find the thought of opening the entrance?
Only Sir System, who was immune to any poison or temptation and had no human emotion would be unable to have any emotional resonation with the temple block. This allowed it to barely elude the other’s trap.
If Fang Ning were to hit the temple block ten thousand times, a big problem might occur…
Of course, if the System were not around, he still might have been able to hit it ten thousand times, but it would be impossible now.
The System very quickly hit out a golden arch in the courtyard.
Fang Ning looked at the door to the Draconic Penitentiary, then at this door. There were generally no differences between the two.
He then understood why the Great Demon Saint, or Lord of the Demons, was called as such.
There was no doubt that its ability could be revealed from this detail. Its domain could actually be opened at any point of the world for people to enter and leave at will.
People with such power were few and far in between.
Before long, he saw Long Fan flying down from the air. The two met in the villa courtyard.
Looking carefully, Fang Ning saw that it was not alone. It was carrying a basket of flowers, where a green snake was lying inside.
The green snake had a listless expression, but it carried a familiar presence, which surprised Fang Ning.
After seeing Vigilante A, the green snake slowly came to its senses and lifted its head. It looked at him curiously, as if sensing something.
Long Fan hurriedly introduced, “Venerable One, this is the Qiao Zijiang’s zodiac-demon Soul Dragon I mentioned before. I don’t know if this is true, but I heard you’ve recently granted asylum to a Dragon Carp from the Upper Realm’s Dragon Clan. I would like to ask it to give an appraisal.”
Fang Ning was surprised. He remembered this. It had mentioned this before, and the Dragon Carp had also said some relevant information.
If he guessed right, this was a wisp of the Third Son of the Dragon Clan’s spiritual sense in the Lower Realm. There was a large difference with the Third Son itself, but the difference was not that huge.
Previously, Fang Ning had been worried that he would end up meeting a real one. However, looking at its face now, he immediately became assured. Even if it really was the real thing, what could he do?
It had the strength of a mere Bucket-level. The fact that it could survive until now was already commendable. How could it pose any trouble for Vigilante A?
Don’t mention door, there wouldn’t even be windows!
However, since Fang Ning was a reasonable person and he had been using the brand of the Dragon Clan all along, now that the true lord has arrived, he would have to give him some brand usage fees.
After thinking, he took out two Dragon Clan Honey-flavoured Pills.
The green snake’s eyes lit up, but it still did not say anything.
Fang Ning shook his head, “Unfortunately, I sent the Dragon Carp to an arcane realm to preside over work. It will not be able to return in the near future. However, it’s not a big deal. Let this brother stay here for a few days, and in a few days when the arcane realm train starts to run, we’ll go together.”
He continued, “I see this brother seems rather down. Its soul might be heavily injured. Since it came here with you, I cannot ignore it. I’ll give you these two Dragon Clan Honey-flavoured Pills for you two to for healing.”
Hearing this, Long Fang hurriedly glared at the green snake, “Hurry and thank the Venerable One. I was too soft-hearted and brought you here. Otherwise, how would you be able to receive such great things?”
At this moment, the green snake did not even look at Long Fan, and only said to Fang Ning, “Although I cannot sense what True Dragon is possessing Your Excellency, Your Excellency’s true dragon aura is very authentic. Looks like this old dragon had hidden its spiritual sense while descending.
“I never thought that there were still places that we True Dragons have not explored in the Upper Realm. It’s a shame that we might not have the chance to explore them in the future either.
“Since we are kin, I will bite the bullet and accept Senior’s kindness. Of course, this offer will surely be repaid in kind later.”
After speaking, it opened its mouth. The two pills on Fang Ning’s palm flew up and entered its mouth.
It gulped down the pills, and a strange expression appeared on its dragon and snake-like face.
Before long, Long Fan was surprised to see this green snake’s body gradually change in shape. Dragon horns, dragon claws, and dragon scales all grew out, until it finally looked like a miniature green dragon!
“You, you, you’re really a dragon? No wonder that little lady Qiao Zijiang was so courteous to you but was always yelling at me. She definitely is a racist!” Long Fang said, both surprised and angry.
The miniature green dragon looked contemptuously at Long Fan, and said to Fang Ning.
“Um, Senior, do you have any more of that Dragon Clan Honey-flavoured Pill? Give me another two, and I’ll return the favor with treasures later. Although my treasures were lost when I descended, they still have True Dragon aura on them. I can sense where they are, so I can retrieve them when my power is restored.”
Fang Ning laughed, “Don’t mention it. I have other flavors available too. Right, I’ll have to trouble brother Long Fan more too, so I’ll just give you an entire bottle.”
The System was dissatisfied, “You’re being too generous with my things again”
Fang Ning retorted, “If you’re stingy with the pills, you won’t be able to catch the dragon”
After speaking, he spread out seven to eight small bottles in the air.
The miniature green dragon’s eyes brightened at the sight, and with a ‘swoop’, all the bottles of them disappeared into an unknown location, leaving only the stunned Long Fan.
“Hey, hey, Mr. Upper Realm True Dragon, aren’t you being a little too shameless? Most of those pills were given to me by Big Brother, so why did you snatch them so quickly? Hurry up and give me 90%!” Long Fan thundered.
The miniature green dragon ignored him and just went back to sleep in the basket.
Long Fan immediately felt wronged, “Venerable One, look at it. How is that a noble True Dragon? I suspect it’s just a counterfeit.”
“A True Dragon should be like the Venerable One, chivalrous, virtuous, generous, and selfless.”
Fang Ning wanted to tell Long Fan that how it was acting was how True Dragons really acted. The Dragon Carp complained about this a lot.
The miniature green dragon thought in disdain, ‘Virtuous, generous, and selfless. What were those?’
‘If only the Dragon Carp was here. I remember it collected many treasures. I could have used a few of those to pay the bill.’
‘That won’t do either. It probably could not bring them down. No matter if it were itself or the boss, they would have been taken away…
Little Brothers should be appeased. Fang Ning took two pills from his own snack pills and gave them to Long Fan as compensation.
As for the pills that were taken away by the miniature green dragon, Fang Ning only chuckled. The System would definitely keep an account.
Long Fan was immediately grateful. After listening to Fang Ning’s instructions, it decisively plunged into the golden arch in the courtyard without a shred of hesitation
The miniature green dragon quickly opened its mouth to stop it, “You can’t enter that Ay, that stupid snake. It ran too fast.”
Fang Ning was immediately surprised, and he asked, “Why can’t it go in?”
The miniature green dragon was still very courteous towards Fang Ning.
Since it had accepted his meal and even confirmed that he was a dragon…
It said, “I remember that door should be that Buddhist monk Zhi Nan’s. I’ve cleaned up a lot of its mess before. Once the soul enters that place, it abandons itself to pleasure and be unwilling to leave. Once they plunge themselves into endless enjoyment, they’ll become useless”
Fang Ning was shocked. He had thought that it was just a virtual game inside with tons of fun things to do. He just did not expect the temptation to be so strong that it would cause a person to be unwilling to leave.
He pondered. The craziest he went when he was playing games was staying up all night. He wanted to go to class the next day, but he just could not get up.
He became worried, “What should we do then?”
“We’ll have to see that stupid snake’s concentration. If he were to become addicted, it’ll be a big problem. Whatever, I won’t enter that place anyway.” The miniature green dragon shook its head.
“Can Qiao Zijiang summon it back?”
“No. If Long Fan wants to come out, there are only two ways. The first is to die inside there and have Qiao Zijiang resurrect it outside, but there is no death inside that place. The second way is for it to willingly leave, but the Paradise Realm repels all external forceful summons.” the miniature green dragon explained.
Fang Ning nodded. As expected from a descended spiritual sense from a True Dragon from the Upper Realm. It immediately exposed the Demon Lord’s trump card.
He looked anxiously at the golden arch, and the miniature green dragon also stared at the arch at the same time. Looks like it still cared about its colleague.
Time ticked by, and eventually, half an hour had passed.
The miniature green dragon shook its head, “This isn’t good. From what I remember, if one can’t use their perseverance to get out in the beginning, basically no one would be able to come out voluntarily later.”
Fang Ning immediately regretted. Long Fan was unafraid of death, and it had the skill ‘Thousand Mile Assistance’. He had long been used to using it as a scout, but he had not expected that it would end up trapped inside this time.
If this really was hopeless, then it would be hard for him to come to terms with his decision.
After all, Long Fan was one of the few creatures that had common topics to talk about with him…
The miniature green dragon shook its head. It never thought that that stupid snake would actually be able to make friends with a Senior True Dragon. It had never spared it a glance before either.
Fang Ning paced back and forth in the courtyard, extremely distressed.
Meanwhile, the miniature green dragon had already fallen asleep…
Well, to be able to let the True Dragon worried for even three seconds, Long Fan would be proud.
After two hours, a black snake suddenly emerged from the golden arch in the courtyard!
Fang Ning was overjoyed at the sight, but he was also extremely confused.
“Damn it, they’re all a bunch of sore losers! We agreed together to play some real life PUBG since no one could die anyway. I’ve only killed twenty people, but they all can’t stand it. Their minds are too weak.” (TN: is an online multiplayer battle royale game called PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), but it also literally means ‘eat chicken’. At the end of the game, the winner will receive a message saying ‘Winner Winner Chicken Dinner’.)
Long Fan complained the moment it came out.
