Chapter 343: Four legendary figures

“Why were these monsters suddenly attacking us?” Shi Xiaobai asked.

He knew nothing about the seventh level, and now, there was someone he could ask. He had a feeling that it was no accident that these creatures had suddenly attacked them.

The reason why the assessment program had delayed telling him the rules of the seventh level might have been because there were no rules, to begin with, but it was more likely that it did not want to inform him.

Upon hearing this, Speechless pricked up his eyebrows slightly and asked curiously, “You don’t know?”

Shi Xiaobai’s eyes lit up slightly and asked, “What’s going on? Does it have to do with the rules of the seventh level?”

Speechless said with a light laugh, “It appears like you don’t even know the rules.”

Shi Xiaobai shrugged and affirmed his thoughts. He said, “There’s not much that can be done. This King is too outstanding that even the assessment program is targeting This King negatively. Not a hint was given.”

Speechless chuckled and said, “If the assessment program is really targeting you negatively, the chances of you clearing this level is basically zero.”

Shi Xiaobai frowned and asked, “Why do you say so?”

Speechless quipped, “This is because the rules of this level can only be described in one sentence… Survive, until you gain the approval of the assessment program!”

Shi Xiaobai’s heart leaped.

Survive until he gained the approval of the assessment program?

The word ‘survive’ was easy to understand. The sudden attack of the monsters was probably one of the obstructions to ‘surviving’. However, what did it mean by gaining the approval of the assessment program?

Shi Xiaobai could not help but ask, “How could one gain the approval of the assessment program?”

Speechless said scoffingly, “It seems like you did not do any research about the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower? You don’t even know its most famous stories?”

Shi Xiaobai asked in surprise, “Its most famous stories?”

Speechless had enough of this question and answer conversation. He decided to simply say everything. “The first six levels of the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower is considered a screening, while the last three levels are the real trials. The first six levels of the trial are randomly generated, while the final three levels, which are the seventh, eighth and ninth level are set in stone. Throughout history, there have been countless people who have passed the screening of the first six levels, but only four people have ever passed the seventh level! And that is to say, only four people have obtained the approval of the assessment program on the seventh level! Therefore, these four stories have been recorded in the history books of the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower.”

When Shi Xiaobai heard this, he immediately could imagine the difficulty of the matter. He remembered from Mu Yuesheng’s introduction that the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower had existed for several thousand years and was refreshed every month. It could accommodate up to a thousand trial-takers each time, so how many trial-takers had ever entered the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower over all these years?

But there were only four people that managed to clear the seventh level?

It was apparent how difficult it was to obtain the assessment program’s approval.

Then, how did the four historical figures obtain the approval of the assessment program? What were the four stories?

An intense curiosity arose in Shi Xiaobai as he said to Speechless, “Quick, tell me the stories you know!”

Speechless rolled his eyes and said, “You really do not know what it means to be polite. This Emperor has a story, do you have wine?”

Shi Xiaobai said with a grin, “Not for now, but there will be a day when This King will treat you to the best wine in the world.”

Using the best wine in the world in exchange for a story known by everyone was a completely unequal exchange. It was unbelievable, but for Shi Xiaobai, it was not an empty promise, but a promise of a King.

Speechless hesitated before saying, “Alright. This Emperor does not expect the best wine, but if you happen to come across some legendary brews, sharing a few mouthfuls with This Emperor would do. The four stories are actually very simple. First, you have to know that the world in this level is completely different from the worlds of the previous six levels. In the world of this level, there are countries as well as people that exist other than the trial-takers!”

Shi Xiaobai was slightly astonished. People? Thinking back to the previous six levels, they were filled with monsters and the goals of the trials were relatively simple. But there were countries and people appearing on this level?

Shi Xiaobai immediately had a strong interest in the four stories. He urged, “Continue on!”

Speechless said with a chuckle, “Although they are said to be people, they are actually people on another plane of existence. According to speculation regarding this world’s era and background, this was on the plane of existence of the species that created the Nine Revolutions Transcendental World. Therefore, we call the people in this level’s world the Transcendents.”

“However, as the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower is a land of trials for the Psionic Mortal Realm, the Transcendents have their strength reduced by the assessment program. The strongest Transcendent is only around the strength of a Level Lord. The historical period of this world is rather old-fashioned. It’s labeled the age of ‘Bravehearts and Infernal King’. The seven trial-takers that slew the dragons in the sixth level will be chosen as a Hexstar Bravehearts and sent to this level. Do you understand? Our role in this level’s world is that of Hexstar Bravehearts that are enemies of the Infernal King.”

Shi Xiaobai’s eyes lit up slightly.

Bravehearts and Infernal King?

This kind of background story was fatally attractive to him.

Speechless continued, “Then, what follows will be the four famous stories. In mankind’s history, the first person to clear the seventh level of the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower is the most famous overlord, Ji Feng. This person was fearless and rash, but he lacked intelligence. He chose to forcefully clear the level!”

Shi Xiaobai immediately said with a smile, “Survive?”

“Smart,” said Speechless with a nod. “Back when humans did not know how to obtain the approval of the assessment program, survival was not considered a way to clear the level. However, Overlord Ji Feng managed to survive a hundred days on the seventh level. The monsters that suddenly attacked us are just a tiny appetizer in the difficulty of survival. However, Overlord Ji Feng did not do a thing except tour the world. Regardless of how many monsters came, he slew them all, never suffering defeat for a hundred days! Even the Level Lord could not do anything to him! Therefore, the assessment program made an exception, allowing him to clear the seventh level, making him the first trial-taker to reach the eighth level in the history of mankind.”

Shi Xiaobai immediately felt his blood boiling in his veins when he heard this. He imagined a scene of him slaying all monsters that came at him. How domineering was this?

A trace of longing flashed in Speechless’ eyes as he continued, “Later on, people tried following Ji Feng’s method of surviving a hundred days, but not a single person succeeded. Therefore, people began finding new ways to clear the level. Finally, about a thousand years later, Sword Immortal Xu Taibai managed to clinch victory in the seventh level’s Braveheart Martial Arts Tournament. He defeated all the talented Transcendents, accomplishing what seemed impossible to the eyes of commoners, opening up a new path of success. Although defeating the Transcendents and clinching victory at the Braveheart Martial Arts Tournament was extremely difficult, it was much more normal than surviving a hundred days. Therefore, this has become the most common method of clearing people have attempted on the seventh level. However, the assessment program adjusted the difficulty of the Braveheart Martial Arts Tournament after that happened. As such, no human has managed to clinch victory in the Braveheart Martial Arts Tournament for the next thousand years.

As he ate his ‘potato chips’ and ‘chocolates’, Shi Xiaobai listened to the narration of the story. It was really delightful.

“What’s next?” Shi Xiaobai continued urging Speechless.

Speechless coughed and said, “Six thousand years ago, it was the world’s most famous Conquest King, which is also the second Original Sin of Calamity that everyone knows. He clearly had the ability to survive a hundred days, and it would be a cinch winning the Martial Arts Tournament, but this person chose to step into the Infernal City and slew the Infernal King himself! Although the Infernal King’s strength had been reduced, his strength was above the Level Lord’s. As such, he became the third person who cleared the level!”

The three clearers had used different methods to clear the level, but they made Shi Xiaobai turn more feverish. In the age of Bravehearts and Infernal King on the seventh level, how great a pleasure would it be to slay the Infernal King using one’s own hands?

“What about the fourth person?”

Shi Xiaobai was eager to know what the other method the fourth person had used.

But at this moment, Speechless was lost in thought for a moment as though he thought of something. His expression turned somewhat strange as though he was in reflection and was engaging in remembrance.

Speechless sighed and whispered, “The fourth clearer was the man who established the age of heroes, who was given the title ‘Hero King’… What he did could be said to have surpassed the three before him. As a human, he left behind the most famous story in the Nine Revolutions Transcendental Tower.”

      1. I think that’s because Kali killed Gluttony, so his soul or whatever went back to the OSoC which apparently is Xiaobai. So basically gluttony is no longer a separate entity.
