Chapter 320: Planet Number One’s Test (1)
Xu Jingming and the others gathered together and looked at the illusory figure in midair.
The illusory figure overlooked them. “According to the rules of the mysterious land, one is qualified to proceed to the next planet after passing every planet’s test. After passing all the tests, one can reach the final Planet Number Seven.”
These 58,920 people all had quite a background. After all, those who knew about the opportunities in Blood Rain World and could sacrifice 10,000 gold were considered outstanding among cosmic citizens! There were peerless geniuses, royal family members, scions of some large cosmic families…
“Of the seven planets, every planet has many opportunities,” the illusory figure continued. “From Planet Number One to Planet Number Seven, the opportunities get better with every planet. Therefore, your best choice… is to reach the seventh planet before exploring the opportunities.”
Xu Jingming sighed inwardly. This guide had actually already explained the best way to explore.
“Planet Number Seven? How many can reach it?”
“The best person in my civilization’s history only reached Planet Number Five.”
“It’s considered a gain if I can obtain a good opportunity. Otherwise, if I keep exploring and get kicked out when the time comes, I’ll be out of any opportunities. That would be a huge loss.”
Many cosmic citizens murmured and didn’t agree with the guide. This was because their civilizations had a lot of exploration experience as a reference. They knew how difficult it was to reach Planet Number Seven.
“I came to the mysterious land for opportunities.”
“An opportunity that suits me is the best.”
As some people murmured, the illusory figure above continued, “You have 330 days to explore the mysterious land! In these 330 days, you can attempt the tests repeatedly. You can search for opportunities or even log off… to seek advice from your teachers and elders!”
“Once the 330-day deadline is up, you will also be expelled and aren’t allowed to enter the mysterious land again.”
“Best wishes on reaching Planet Number Seven and obtaining the best opportunities,” the illusory figure said. “The countdown for the exploration begins now! You can check your personal interface for the details of the seven planets’ tests.”
With that said, the ethereal figure disappeared.
Everyone immediately opened their personal interface to take a look. Xu Jingming also opened it, and there was information on the test.
He tapped gently.
The projection of Planet Number One appeared in front of him, and a canyon was labeled on it. It was as if the entire planet had been cleaved open to form a canyon.
This canyon was connected to chains.
One was to step onto the chain and carefully walk from one end of the canyon to the other. When one successfully arrived at the other end, they would be considered as passing the test and could enter a miniature wormhole to head to Planet Number Two.
There were many chains! The length varied from 828 kilometers to 916 kilometers, and there were many dangers along the way. Once one failed, they had to start all over again.
There were also many opportunities in other areas of Planet Number One.
Chains? Xu Jingming didn’t care about the opportunities on Planet Number One; he only cared about the chain. I’ll give it a try.
Xu Jingming quickly determined the path according to the three-dimensional map provided by his personal interface.
I’ll choose my equipment first. Through his personal interface, he quickly chose a set of light armor combat boots and a spear. Although Xu Jingming’s footwork and spearmanship had reached Lv. 7, his shield techniques were temporarily stuck at Lv. 6 99%.
Time to go. He followed the path and advanced.
The surrounding people from other civilizations chose their weapons and equipment and headed for the canyon.
“I’m Lanmo from the Nine Feathers Star Alliance,” the blue-skinned, tall human walking to the side approached Xu Jingming and said warmly.
Xu Jingming glanced at the other party—he was about 2.35 meters tall and had blue skin, and his hair was tied into more than 100 braids. Xu Jingming wondered if Lanmo knew the importance of hiding his identity.
“Oohook Star Alliance, Wu Ming.” Xu Jingming casually gave an alias.
“Oohook Star Alliance? It’s quite far from our Nine Feathers Star Alliance. My greatest goal in life is to visit every Star Alliance in the entire human dominion, but I haven’t even finished visiting our Hunter Cosmic Sector. The tickets to cross a Star Alliance are prohibitively expensive.” Lanmo sighed.
Xu Jingming was curious. “I’ve never checked up on it. How much does the ticket from the Nine Feathers Star Alliance to the Oohook Star Alliance cost?”
“The tickets will definitely exceed 100 million cosmic dollars,” Lanmo answered. “Moreover, it won’t be a direct flight! We have to make many detours and pass through many Star Alliances. The journey will take at least three months.”
Xu Jingming nodded.
The geodesic between the Nine Feathers Star Alliance and the Oohook Star Alliance exceeded two billion light-years! If one took a detour and passed through many Star Alliances, it would indeed take a long time.
A spaceship that could travel such distances in space was extremely expensive! The tickets were naturally very expensive.
“Of the 185 Star Alliances in the Hunter Cosmic Sector, I’ve only traveled less than half of them.” Lanmo shook his head. “When can I visit the other cosmic sectors and broaden my horizons? Oh right, is there anything special about your Oohook Star Alliance?”
“I don’t like traveling, so I don’t know much,” Xu Jingming said.
He had never left Earth or the solar system!
“The evolutionary path requires learning, and one has to travel the universe,” Lanmo commented. “Brother Wu Ming, there are too many mysteries in the universe. Different civilizations have different wonders. Having more knowledge is very helpful for cultivation.”
“Okay,” Xu Jingming replied.
He didn’t have money or time.
“Let me tell you. The North Sparrow Star Alliance I went to last time was very interesting…” Lanmo chatted excitedly.
