Chapter 453: Buddhistic Players, Just Cover Your Head
Translator: Noodletown Translations Editor: Noodletown Translations
Chong Lou had captured Xuan Jian and Long Kui right after Jing Tian’s battle with the Evil Sword Immortal, which was the cause of the final battle with Chong Lou. Due to the short time between these two battles, the players didn’t have enough time to increase their levels to 99 like in the original version of the game.
Due to the limited preparation time, the players were allowed to use all kinds of methods to rescue the hostages and obtain the perfect ending.
If the players wanted to battle Chong Lou without using any tricks, they could follow another path and obtain another ending. After Xuan Jian sacrificed herself to the sword furnace and died, Jing Tian, who was heartbroken with sorrow, immersed himself in Martial Dao and finally reached the No Sword Realm. After he recovered most of his sword techniques from his previous life, he finally had the power to battle Chong Lou.
“Is there no one who is going to praise my excellent plays?” After winning the battle using all kinds of treasures and elixir pills, Mr. Fang didn’t feel a trace of shame. “Do you think it’s easy to sneak-attack a demon lord?”
If it was the original version of the game, Mr. Fang was confident that he could just barely defeat Chong Lou by using the level 1 Demon-Suppressing Sword.
But now, there weren’t that many mechanics that could be used in the virtual reality version, which meant that Fang Qi couldn’t defeat this demon lord using the fancy moves as he did in Devil May Cry 3.
After all, Dante had gained tremendous strength at the end of the Devil May Cry 3, and Mr. Fang had synchronized with Dante for a long time in the Game Cultivation Room. In contrast, Jing Tian’s current strength in the Legend of the Sword and Fairly 3 was way lower than that of Chong Lou’s.
However, people didn’t care about this. After all, they were more interested in the fact that Long Kui, who had jumped into the sword furnace, could finally be resurrected.
For Chong Lou, his small wound was no big deal. After bringing Long Kui back to life, he even separated Red Kui from Blue Kui, who had been one person with two personalities.
In this way, Long Kui became two girls.
The audience watched Jing Tian return to his life as the shop owner of Xin’an Pawn Shop. He put away and sealed his sword and lived a happy and free life.
Xue Jian became the mistress of the shop, Blue Kui was in charge of antique appraisals, and Red Kui’s job was to scare customers. They lived happily as a family.
Beginning from the battle in the New Immortal World and ending with the battle in the New Immortal World, all the reincarnations came to a happy ending.
While the ending of the Legend of Sword and Fairy 1 was a sharp blade cutting into the players’ hearts when they thought of it many years later, the ending of the Legend of Sword and Fairy 3 was a cup of fragrant tea where the taste would linger with them for a long time.
On the big screen, many bullet comments expressed the audience’s feelings.
Ruan Ning: [I’m touched…]
Nalan Mingxue: [Compared with the Legend of Sword and Fairy 1, I like this one better.]
Lan Yan: [I like both.]
Su Tianji: [I like both as well!]
Not only the girls such as Xu Zixin and Dong Qingli, but the guys such as Liang Shi and Song Qingfeng were so happy that they danced cheerfully. “Long live Big Brother Chong Lou! I didn’t know that Sister Long Kui could be resurrected! Excellent!”
“I knew it!” Inside the Yuanyang City Shop, Zong Wu gulped down Coke and slammed his hand on his thigh heartily, and he said while laughing. “This girl Long Kui doesn’t look like someone who would die so easily! She looks lucky!”
Since the young people from the Heavenly Academy were of similar age as the characters in the game, they were supposed to share the feelings of the characters who had experienced so many ups and downs until the happy ending was reached.
In the real world, these young people had just begun their journey, setting sail on their ships on the ocean that was called life.
However, most of them remained silent at this moment.
“So good!” One of the young people sent this short bullet comment. It contained only two words but held a deeper meaning.
Meanwhile, the newcomers, Wang Xie, the black-robed Daoist, and Old Academy Master Gu Tingyu, exchanged a look of bafflement, wondering about the story leading to the final battle. “Who… can tell us the story?”
“It’s Senior Gu!” Many people had been watching the livestream intently and didn’t see him. When Zong Wu and the others saw him and came over to greet him, the others were startled.
After all, not just anyone could have the opportunity to see him. Otherwise, the people would have swarmed to the Heavenly Academy to ask him to calculate some answers for them, and the threshold of the main gate of the Heavenly Academy would have been destroyed.
Gu Tingyun immediately stood up to return the greetings. “I’m here for a leisure outing. I’m surprised to see so many of you here.”
“We…” Zong Wu and the others smiled in embarrassment. “Senior Gu, did you just say that you want to know the story of the Legend of the Sword and Fairy 3?”
“The Legend of the Sword and Fairy 3? Story?” Gu Tingyun was puzzled. “What story?”
Gu Tingyun pointed at the big screen. “I want to know how the shop owner could battle the demon lord and resurrect people…”
“Who the heck is the shop owner? He’s so powerful that he can even battle a demon lord!”
Zong Wu’s face twitched.
This was a big misunderstanding.
Immediately, he explained the game to the newcomers and took them to the computers to experience the Legend of the Sword and Fairy 3 in person.
– Three minutes later –
It only took three minutes for them to fall in love with this new game. Green light lit up in their eyes while they asked, “Do you mean that we can also battle Demon Lord Chong Lou when we play to the end of the game?!”
It was awesome enough to watch someone else battle, and now they realized that they could do the same and battle this powerful master!
Although it was only a game, the experience was almost the same as in the real world. Even Gu Tingyun, an old man who was enjoying the last few years of his life, wished that he could pass the game and experience the battle with the demon lord.
“Ugh… This…” Zong Wu was embarrassed, thinking that they had a long way to go before they could reach the end, and they should take it slow.
However, Mr. Fang’s battle with Chong Lou gave them some inspiration. So long as they had the right strategies, accumulated enough experience and skills, and obtained precious treasures in the game, they also had a chance to pass the game even if their cultivation strengths were not high.
In Jiuhua City, people like Nalan Mingxue, Song Qingfeng, and Su Tianji who had played the Legend of the Sword and Fairy 1 with proficiency had no difficulty playing the Legend of the Sword and Fairy 3; some of them had reached the second half of the game.
As for the cultivators in Yuanyang City, most of them were still playing the first half of the game, reaching the middle point.
As for the new players such as Gu Tingyun, Wang Xie, and the black-robed Daoist Zhou Mo, they were still being reprimanded by Ms. Tang.
“This girl is so unruly. How dare she beat me!” Zhou Mo jumped up in rage. In the game, Jing Tian who hadn’t learned any martial arts received another beating before he could attempt to fight back.
He turned his head. “Master, how did you pass this part?”
Gu Tingyu looked calm. As a Buddhistic player, since he couldn’t fight back, he just covered his head and received the beating calmly.
[TL Note: Buddhistic is a popular internet slang in China. It is used to describe people who are calm and reserved at all time.]
It seemed like they had a long way to go before they could challenge Chong Lou.
