Read Black Tech Internet Cafe System Chapter 900 Arcade hall in Innumerable-Immortal Sea; BBK learning machine!?
– In the nameless sea area in Innumerable-Immortal Sea where Nalan Hongwu and the others ascended from the Lower Region –
Green Sky Immortal, the Heavenly Supervisor, gazed at the vast sea with squinted eyes; she seemed to be searching for something for a long time.
“Who are they…? Perhaps…? Some people ascended from the mortal world?”
“It’s not likely.” The old Daoist standing beside Green Sky Immortal said, “Even we have to be cautious with those godly thunderbolts in the void. Without the purgation of the immortal spiritual essence, those mortals can’t pass the vast void, let alone eluding our eyes.”
“It’s a hard journey to travel through the void. They would need to rest nearby for at least one month to recover their strength. But after searching for more than half a month, we haven’t found a clue…”
“Anyway, I’ll report it to the higher-levels before we make any decisions,” Green Sky Immortal said cautiously with an unreadable expression.
“But…” The old Daoist said while feeling awkward, “Those lords are busy with an important issue; I’m afraid that they don’t have time to mind such a trivial matter…”
Of course, they would never have thought that Nalan Hongwu and his companions hadn’t even stayed at this place for half a minute, let alone half a month.
At this moment, the group had come to the Thousand-Lantern Immortal Market under the Saint Emperor Mountain.
All kinds of items were being traded in this market. Since it was close to the major families, many young immortals from these ancient families would slip out and play in this immortal market.
“This thing is quite useful!” At this moment, Gu Tingyun and the others had left that sea area long ago and came to the market full of immortals. They had even bought the shop which was said to be close to one of the eight major families, even though they didn’t know which one. The market before them was extremely prosperous.
“We sold one feather for 5,000 immortal crystals, which was an extremely low price in the black market! For only 2,000 immortal crystals, that shop owner handed us the deed of the shop in joy.”
“…” Nalan Hongwu said, “If sold in the regular market, the price would probably be as high as 100,000 immortal crystals; but they didn’t recognize its value!”
“We’d be finished if they recognized its value!” Gu Tingyun chuckled.
The white feather in his hand was one of the feathers from the Valkyrie’s wings. Things had gone much smoother than they had expected. After selling one feather for a high price on the black market, the money talked, which made the purchase of that shop a piece of cake.
As he put away the feather in his storage spiritual artifact, the others took out things from their storage spiritual artifact and put up the new sign over the shop. Then, they heard people talking outside the door.
“Did you hear? The eight-ancient immortal families are holding a banquet on the Immortal-Investiture Platform to welcome heroes and immortals from all places. They are recruiting immortals to subdue the evil and unorthodox gods who are deluding the mortal world!”
“Anyone with some abilities will be rewarded if they are willing to go down to the Lower Region and kill the demons!”
“Really…?” Coming out of a shop selling immortal treasures, three weirdly dressed immortal cultivators talked among themselves. “Should us, the Cloud Dream Three Eccentrics, go and try our luck?”
One of the three men wore ragged clothes like a beggar, one was tall and thin with vertical eyes, and the last was as brawny as a bull and had two horns on his head.
Nalan Hongwu and Gu Tingyun exchanged a look and walked up calmly before asking, “Daoist Friend, you said something about… the mortal world? Anything big happening lately?”
“You two are new here…?” The three men looked Nalan Hongwu and Gu Tingyun up and down cautiously. They saw that one of them was slightly hunchbacked but looked heroic and extraordinary with white hair and a white robe, and the other looked celestial and grander than an ordinary immortal.
Seeing their suspicion, Nalan Hongwu and Gu Tingyun cupped hands, saying, “We’re from the new shop, the High Immortal Arcade Game Hall, which is next door!”
“What hall?!” Cloud Dream Three Eccentrics thought that they had heard it wrong and gazed at the celestial old men in stupefaction.
Following the direction that the two men pointed, they saw the sign over the shop next door.
[High Immortal Arcade Game Hall]!
??? What is that?!
“Daoist Friend, you haven’t told us about the big events happening in the mortal world,” Gu Tingyun immediately reminded him.
“Oh…! No problem.” Seeing that they were not people of suspicious origins, the tall and thin immortal said, “In fact, it’s not a secret. It’s said that the demons in the mortal world are so outrageous that they occupied the immortal factions and godly nations in the mortal world and even used tricks to defeat the immortals who went to fight them. Therefore, the major immortal families are gathering immortals from different families and places to wage a war against them in the Lower Region.”
“It’s said…” He pointed at the west and said in a low voice, “Those people over there will join this time.”
“What kind of demons are so outrageous?!” Nalan Hongwu said immediately, “It’s a pity that we can’t leave our shop. Otherwise, we can join the army and fight them!”
“We share the same purpose.” Cloud Dream Three Eccentrics was reassured when they found that their new friends shared the same hatred for the demons in the mortal world as them. “By the way…”
Pointing at the shop behind him, the immortal looked at it curiously and asked, “Daoist Friends, what business does your…hall do?”
As he said that, a few people walked over while being led by a white-robed, arrogant young master. Walking before him, the servant-looking young man demanded, “What business does your shop do?”
“Arcade Game Hall? What’s that?!” They looked at the shop with curiosity. The shop hadn’t begun its business yet but was well decorated with two rows of artifacts standing neatly in the small space.
Close to the entrance was a rectangle artifact which showed an environment as colorful as the bottom of the Innumerable-Immortal Sea with all kinds of rare fishes swimming in it.
They even saw a huge weird fish with fins large enough to block the sun flashing by. It revealed a small part of its body in the deep ocean.
In other artifacts beside it, there were small figures casting all kinds of spiritual spells which created powerful thunderbolts or surging ocean waves. There were also all kinds of gods, immortals, and monsters named Marshal Tian Peng and the Great Sage, Heaven’s Equal. The scenes were dizzying to watch.
Several tall artifacts stood in the innermost location of the shop. There were arrows dropping onto a small platform with a three by three grid.
“Is this spiritual platform showing an array?” Cloud Dream Three Eccentrics pointed at the pad and asked.
“Daoist friend, you have sharp eyes. This is called the Nine Palace Array,” Zong Wu introduced with a laugh.
“Nine Palace Array?! What array is that?! We’ve never heard of it before,” the white-robed young master said in disdain.
While stroking his beard, Zong Wu said with a smile, “It divides the Heavenly Palace into nine equal parts which are Qian, Kan, Gen, Zhen, Zhong, Xun, Li, Kun, and Dui. They move according to the movements of the stars in the sky. It’s an array and also a set of movement techniques at the same time.”
Pointing at the arrows falling in the screen of the special ‘spiritual artifact’, he said, “When you step on the Nine Palace Array according to the order of the arrows falling on the screen, you can use the movement technique taught by the spiritual artifact.”
Their eyes instantly lit up. “What’s this spiritual artifact called? Can we try it?”
“This is called… Danc…”
Before Zong Wu could complete the word ‘dance’ and say the next word ‘pad’, Gu Tingyun interrupted and said with great solemnity and presence, “This is called the BBK Learning Machine!”
