Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 24: Multiplayer Dungeon, Ollaborative Mission

After several more rounds of fighting, Gu Nan roughly confirmed his own strength level.

Purely in terms of strength and explosive force, he probably ranged between Innate Realm Fourth Stage and Fifth Stage. However, his body’s physique was extremely strong, allowing him to directly withstand attacks from opponents of the same level, so his actual combat power far surpassed that.

Furthermore, Gu Nan still had three pieces of equipment in hand. Once he used the Four Element Crossbow and Shadow Earring, he could even fight Innate Realm Sixth Stage experts.

"My strength has roughly been confirmed, but it’s a pity that with Radiant Tower’s rules, who knows how long it’ll take before I get a chance to leave..."

Gu Nan didn't forget that people had kidnapped him to Radiant Tower because of a problem on Gu Nian’s side. If he had the chance, he definitely wanted to leave here to meet Gu Nian and check who secretly laid hands on him while he was at it.

It was important to improve his strength, and revenge was also necessary—maybe he could even earn some Evil Value in the process.

But they threw him into a small asteroid belt branch office to stall and prevent him from making any kind of appearance right now.

Because according to Radiant Tower’s rules, five missions were considered one round, and members were only allowed to leave after completing one round of missions.

After leaving Radiant Tower, they would no longer be Radiant Tower members for the time being. If they wanted to return once more and complete missions, they would have to complete a whole new round of missions before they could leave again.

This peculiar rule was the origin of the air of mystery surrounding Radiant Tower—all the official members would be performing missions, and those who were outside must not be official members. At most, they were just former members.

Those who kidnapped Gu Nan earlier said that he would stay for at least several years, and they weren’t wrong.

For these fighters, Radiant Tower’s missions were still very difficult. Newcomers already needed a lot of time to train and gain experience, so they would really need two to three years to complete five missions.

In particular, they deliberately sent Gu Nan to the small asteroid belt branch office to curb his growth to the utmost extent.

Radiant Tower would allocate resources to some larger branches, but backwater branches like the asteroid belt offices couldn’t even complete their normal mission quota, so why would Radiant Tower ever allocate them any resources?

But nobody ever imagined that there would be a freak like Gu Nan, whose strength soared at a rapid pace. Gu Nan even wanted to thank them.

If he hadn’t been taken to Radiant Tower, Gu Nan wouldn’t have had the chance to experience an explosive growth in strength. To begin with, there was no way to “farm missions” so quickly in the Evil God game!

Based on the mission frequency when he first transmigrated into this world, he received an average of one small low-difficulty mission per week with low rewards.

It wasn’t like Radiant Tower at all, where he could “manually import” external missions.

……

"What did you say? You want to accept a new mission?"

Zhang Dongsheng and Tang Xuan both frowned as they looked at Gu Nan, who had a calm expression.

Zhang Dongsheng politely advised, "Gu Nan, I know that you’re very confident about completing missions, but a small branch office like ours won’t be able to finish our quota even if we try hard, and there also won’t be any rewards. Why bother?"

Every Radiant Tower branch had a certain quota of missions and resources. Those who finished more missions would be rewarded accordingly, while those who finished less would have their resources appropriately deducted.

The latest_epi_sodes are on_the ʟɪɢʜᴛɴᴏᴠᴇʟᴘᴜʙ.ᴄᴏᴍ website.

Branch offices on asteroid belts were poor to begin with, so headquarters wouldn’t deduct too much for fear of a strike.

Of course Gu Nan would never say, “It’s true that you won’t get rewards from completing missions, but for me, they’re the path to leveling up.”

Instead, he spoke righteously, "Since the organization has decided to let me become one of its members, please allow me to read two poems first..."

Zhang Dongsheng and Tang Xuan looked at each other in dismay. In the end, they couldn’t persuade Gu Nan, so they could only let it go.

Tang Xuan said with a serious expression, "I heard that you killed Luo Bing as soon as you entered the ‘Azure City’ mission? Never do this again in the future!"

"Eh, why?"

"Did you seriously read the ‘rebirth rules’?!” Tang Xuan said angrily, "When you reincarnate into someone’s body, you will bear their karma. Luo Bing is the next of kin of the body you reincarnated into. How can you attack her?"

"You were lucky this time that this karma did not fall upon you. Do you still expect to be so lucky next time?"

The theory of karma was very mysterious. Not even members of Radiant Tower, who reincarnated for a living, dared to claim the understanding of karma completely.

According to logic, when Gu Nan killed Luo Bing, he completely violated the karma of the body he reincarnated into, yet he was still untangled by karma. This was most likely the work of certain unknown rules.

But this didn’t mean that Gu Nan could act recklessly. At the very least, Tang Xuan wouldn’t allow it.

However, Gu Nan just waved his hand indifferently, which infuriated Tang Xuan.

"Since you want to participate in missions so much, I happen to have an organization-wide collaborative mission here with me. Are you willing to accept it?" Tang Xuan stared at Gu Nan as she asked.

"Of course I’ll accept!" Gu Nan didn't even have to think about it. "But what’s a collaborative mission?"

Zhang Dongsheng explained, "In addition to ordinary missions, there are also some large-scale missions whose content is very complicated. They require the cooperation of people from multiple branches to complete..."

"I’ll take it! I’m definitely taking this mission!" Before Zhang Dongsheng could even finish, Gu Nan interrupted excitedly.

'What collaborative mission? This is called a multiplayer dungeon in-game!'

Multiplayer dungeons were at least mid-sized dungeons, and they had one common characteristic—that is, they had a large number of side quests and a system that calculated side quest rewards in advance!

Multiplayer dungeons required multiple players to join and to accomplish some goals through either cooperation or opposition.

In his previous life’s game, multiplayer dungeons were rare and could even be considered precious, because they could bring huge benefits to players but were difficult to open.

Multiplayer dungeons wouldn’t appear normally and could only be opened by using a dungeon scroll.

The main mission of multiplayer dungeons was usually very complicated and required a long time to complete, so in the meantime, players could improve themselves by completing side quests.

Now that a multiplayer dungeon had been presented to Gu Nan, how could he refuse?

When Tang Xuan saw that he really did agree, she couldn't help giving a soft Hmph. "If you want to participate in the mission, you must obey our commands. A collaborative mission is no joke, and so we can’t afford for you to act without our approval!"

Gu Nan nodded repeatedly. "I promise to obey commands. If I don't obey... why don’t you hit me?"

"...What did you say?!”

"I said, if I don't listen to your commands, just beat me to death!"

……

A few days later, when Gu Nan had finished reading a large amount of information regarding both the dungeon and the mission, he finally embarked on another dungeon journey.

「External mission detected. Incorporate into current mission sequence?」

「Yes. Name the dungeon ‘Immortal Demon World'」

At Gu Nan’s command, the Evil God Temple instantly incorporated the mission into his mission list, and as Gu Nan’s soul was gradually pulled out, he also slowly approached the large target world through the endless void.

Unlike the last Azure City mission, the soul travel this time was very slow and seemed to be very laborious, so Gu Nan had time to take a good look at the endless void and the many different worlds.

He saw Star Realm and the Azure City plane he’d visited earlier, as well as the "Immortal Demon World" he was heading to.

The Immortal Demon World was very large.

If Star Realm was earth, then the Immortal Demon World would be the size of the moon, while the Azure City plane couldn’t even be the size of a basketball.

"As expected of a multiplayer dungeon. Although it can’t compare to Star Realm, it has the fledgling shape of a large-scale dungeon plane..."
