Master of Science and Technology - Chapter 26
Translator: Darling | Editor: Nebosuke
Elder Xuan Yuan’s mission was to create various designs to restore the game’s memory to the game world. But this process was more complicated, such as alchemy, which required Elder Xuan Yuan to recall the refining process of each pill. He knew that there were countless types of pills. Even the most common and most well-known ones had at least hundreds or thousands of kinds, from the lowest to the highest level of spiritual and magical pills.
And more importantly, the memory should be detailed — he must not leave out even a single detail as much as possible. These details include the change of flame, the changes of the pill furnace, the changes of the spiritual energy of heaven and earth, the changes in the essence of the pills, and so on. The more detailed it is, the more realistic the form is, and the closer the character’s experience in the game is to reality. It was still concocting pills, using magic tools, refining tools, the art of battle array, and so on, so building a set of each form wouldn’t be easy as in alchemy.
Of course, there was nothing difficult for a former Earth immortal, mainly because it just required long hours. Since Elder Xuan Yuan didn’t have much to do, he hid in the great array in the main peak of Yuqing. He used the power of the great array to stabilize himself, calculate the location of his essence blood, and he had a lot of time to do this task.
After explaining things, Ye Zan left the game world, and then opened a large interdimensional space door and moved his trident starship into it. This thing was useless here, so it may be useful if he took it away.
Next, the game ran on its own, and Ye Zan placed the host data storage in a room. Anyway, if he opened the door of the dimensional space frequently and synchronized the data with the AI robots, he would lose nothing even if the host data storage is stolen.
The disciples of Yuqing quickly accepted this new thing and were very excited. At first, Wu Changsheng was worried that his disciples would be lazy and ordered that each person must accumulate up to three hours a day in a game. But who knew if the charms were enough to keep a lazy one busy?
When these disciples became familiar with the game, knew how to choose opponents on their own, and got familiar with fighting with those monsters, they were quickly conquered by the game’s charms. Three hours, even six hours was not enough for them to play. Many of them spent almost all their time in the game except for the ordinary cultivators.
Not only were the inner and outer disciples addicted to it, but even the master of the Jindan sect, Wu Changsheng, and the patriarch of the Yuanying sect, Elder Mo, liked to participate in the game and look around when they had nothing to do.
There were not many people aside from the Yuqing sect in the game. There were only a hundred outer disciples, and 20 to 30 inner disciples. They all got into the game world all the time, and the outside naturally became deserted. In the daytime, except for some people who were in charge of necessary work, there was almost no one walking around.
Contrary to reality, Xinshou village was lively in the game. Xinshou was just a small village, so the 200 people who came in could hear the sound of teams screaming everywhere. From time to time, there were three or five groups leaving the village, and from time to time there were people who would show up in the center square with ghastly looks.
Someone walked out of the game store alone, wearing beautiful clothes, with an impressive name floating above his head, which immediately attracted everyone’s enthusiasm to kill more beasts.
One month later, the game had its first update, and an update announcement was released in the game. Apart from the support system of alchemy, arts of Taoism and magic tools were added in the battle in addition to the items exchanged for points in the game shop. A lot of primary instruments were also added.
In this world, as long as they established their foundation, their essential qi will turn into vital energy and can be used to perform some primary arts, and they’d also be able to use the magic tools. The inner disciples basically cultivated during the period of foundation establishment. In the previous month, they could only use martial arts, and it was holding them back. Although they also needed to test their martial arts, with the arts of Taoism and magic, it undoubtedly will increase their strength.
However, these changes did not let the inner disciples act wildly in the game. When they wanted to get points from monsters, they discovered that the monsters that were difficult before were easy to kill now, and could no longer provide them with points. The monsters they could earn points from could still make them suffer, and they had to show their full strength.
Of course, the most satisfied with this update were Liu Gan and his disciples. They could finally concoct pills in the game. This meant that he could use endless herbs to improve the proficiency of his alchemy — being an alchemy master was no longer just a dream. And some of his disciples also had more opportunities to practice, and thus they would no longer be scolded for wasting pills.
All in all, in a very short time, the entire Yuqing sect became addicted to the world of games. Of course, it was not bad, since this was not just a game. Their enhanced strength in the game world would feed back to their physical bodies.
In the blink of an eye, six months passed. Yuqing, this little sect was different as it did not attract the attention of other sects.
But within the Yuqing sect, even an ordinary outer disciple could clearly feel their changes in the past six months. Although it was just a step by step process in terms of cultivation, if they would really fight till death with people with the same level as them, those who survived would surely be the disciples of Yuqing.
Half a year sounded very short. If it were normal training at the foot of the mountain, even if the disciples fought every day, it accounted for only less than two hundred matches. Besides, no matter how many opponents they had, they may not be able to endure it even if there were opponents.
But the disciples of Yuqing were fighting against various opponents in the game every day. Even if they just spent six or seven hours a day, or played three or five matches, their experience in half a year was quite amazing.
In addition, their opponents are not rigid opponents like ordinary games. Their opponents in the game had AI for calculation and control. There WEre strong opponents, tricky and cruel opponents, fierce demon beasts, and strong weird monsters. If the Jinguang and Wuzhu sects came to cause trouble again now, Ye Zan didn’t need to show up in front of them. These disciples could deal with them easily.
And after half a year, Ye Zan himself finally mastered lianqi. It sounds a bit exaggerated, but thinking of his qualifications, he eats the best quality lianqi pill like sugar, plus he keeps working on lianqi with his plug-in assistance, so this is really not exaggerated.
However, after mastering the lianqi, problems would occur.
The foundation establishment required a zhuji pill so as to save it. Liu Gan, the alchemy master, was able to refine a zhuji pill, but in terms of quality …
Although Liu Gan did not get promoted to a higher position relying on the training in the game world, his level indeed improved a lot. Originally, he could only refine middle-grade and low quality zhuji pills, and although it was uncertain if every pill furnace could produce a high-quality pill now, it had a high probability.
However, Ye Zan was not satisfied with the use of high-quality pills to make zhuji pills. If the disciples will use it, he should use the best one.
So, the pharmaceutical law of science and technology came into play and began to guide him to make the zhuji pill. It was not as simple as the lianqi pill. The zhuji pill did not require a more complex manufacturing method, mainly because there were two kinds of spiritual plants, and Yuqing didn’t have such plants.
