Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God
Chapter 33: The Deal With Qin Xuanji

The content of the side quest was to train Yan Xiaoxiao into a competent assassin, and the reward was yet to be determined.

According to the rules in his previous life's game, “reward yet to be determined” actually meant that this quest could be further developed in depth, and the level of the obtainable reward depended on how deeply the player could develop the quest.

Gu Nan's consciousness appeared in the Evil God Temple, and the reward was also announced:

「500 Points」

It rewarded points!

Gu Nan’s eyebrows rose, and a hint of joy passed through his heart. It was normal for side quests to only award either points or Evil Value, so he wasn’t surprised by this.

But he didn’t expect that such a "simple" side quest would actually give a full 500 points!

One must not think that just because Evil Value was very important, points didn’t matter. Without points, it would be impossible to advance to a new tier even if players had enough Evil Value, and after advancing, they wouldn’t be able to buy equipment or skills either. Even if they bought them, they still wouldn’t be able to afford to use them if they lacked points......

To sum it up in a very simple sentence: How can you become stronger if you don’t have any money?

For example, Gu Nan had been reluctant to buy an accessory for the "necklace" slot because he was making preparations for Tier 3—the advancement from Tier 2 to Tier 3 required 1000 points.

But now Gu Nan already has 950 points, so he didn’t have to be too frugal anymore. Without another word, he bought a piece of equipment.

「Item: Dragon Heart Pendant. Purchase successful. Deducting 250 points」

With a flash of light, a crimson pendant appeared in Gu Nan’s hands. A Western-style dragon was carved at the top of the pendant, but it was a little small—not only was it not majestic, but it even seemed kind of cute.

But the function of this 250 point pendant wasn’t cute at all.

「Dragon Heart Pendant: Allows players to activate the skill "Dragon Power.” This skill cannot be upgraded」

「Dragon Power: Active skill. Greatly enhances the player’s strength and physique. Duration: 5 seconds. Cooldown: 5 minutes」

The Dragon Heart Pendant was a very famous item in the game that gave players a “mini-superman” mode every 5 minutes. It was very popular with players who didn’t choose the spirit type advancement path. The price was also very expensive.

The price of this pendant, whose skill couldn’t even be upgraded, was actually more expensive than the "Shadow Earring,” so one could imagine how powerful the "Dragon Power" skill would be.

‘Now I have 700 points and an Evil Value of 35. According to this pace, I should still have a surplus of points when I advance to Tier 3, so I could buy some good skills.’

That's right, after advancing to Tier 3, players also had to pay points if they wanted to learn skills, and the price wasn’t cheap at all.

‘The main mission won’t be completed in one night, and there’s also only one side quest left, which is to kill the enemy factions’ cultivators......’ Gu Nan calculated what he could do next.

‘If only I can trigger one more side quest.’

Well, alright, this child keeps on dreaming about good things.

In the following days, there was still no news of Yan Xiaoxiao. Gu Nan could only try to go out and "steal some kills,” but unfortunately, thanks to Wen Changfeng and Tang You, he now had people watching his every move, which made it impossible to sneak out.

This was the pain of becoming a celebrity. The enemy had already run away before he even arrived at the battlefield......

In this sense, the enemy vigorously promoted Gu Nan's reputation in order to protect their subordinates.

More than a month passed like this, but Gu Nan barely managed to earn 100 points and no Evil Value at all. It was simply a waste of time.

…...

Inside the sixth asteroid belt division’s tavern hall, the central pillar of light slowly lit up, and Gu Nan's figure walked out of the endless void with a resentful look on his face.

Since he couldn't earn more points and Evil Value in the "Immortal Demon World,” he temporarily left the plane. In any case, he could always enter it again if he needed to, and there were still a lot of things in Star Realm that he had to acquaint himself with.

There was no day or night on the asteroid belt. The tavern was always lit up, and only one person witnessed Gu Nan's return at this moment.

That was Lin Ruo, the person who had a problem with him when he first arrived. However, she never brought up their disagreement again after watching him complete the "Azure City" mission.

Lin Ruo wasn’t a fool. It was one thing to use her strength to bully a newcomer, but Gu Nan clearly wasn’t any kind of newcomer. News that the Azure City mission was completed by a small obscure branch office had already spread throughout Radiant Tower.

She didn’t know the situation in the Immortal Demon World yet and wasn’t aware of Gu Nan's latest battle record, or else she wouldn’t dare to have any ideas at all.

But on the flip side, there was also no need for her to change directions and curry favor with him, so when she saw Gu Nan appear, she immediately got up and left.

Faced with Lin Ruo's coldness, Gu Nan didn’t care. The thoughts of people who lacked the power to affect him didn’t matter at all.

He returned to his room and found a note from Qin Xuanji.

[Private mission, are you interested?]

Private mission?

The message on the note caused some doubts to arise in Gu Nan's heart. He had no choice but to enter the Immortal Demon World because he could no longer receive any new missions in Radiant Tower’s branch office. Otherwise, there was really no need to go to such trouble.

As for the origins of such peculiar things like "missions,” Gu Nan had checked the database long ago but didn’t get much useful information.

He only knew that these missions seemed to originate from some natural law, rather than from human control.

This made Gu Nan lament for a long time. If missions were issued by people, then he could find someone to specifically issue missions and complete them himself to casually farm Evil Value.

Even if missions came from another channel, he could still break away from Radiant Tower later and become a solo reincarnator.

‘It seems that Qin Xuanji knows more than I do.’ Such a thought crossed Gu Nan's mind.

Gu Nan already expected this. After all, even now, he still didn’t really understand the peculiar existence called bloodline users. Qin Xuanji clearly had quite a few secrets.

There was no night or day on the asteroid belt, so Gu Nan immediately came to Qin Xuanji's room.

Qin Xuanji was in the room at this time. After a while, she walked out of the inner room, her black hair dripping wet.

Gu Nan took a look. The liquid on her hair didn’t seem to be sweat or ordinary water, but resembled some kind of special medicinal liquid, and Gu Nan could still smell a faint fishy smell.

‘A special cultivation method?’ Gu Nan secretly pondered in his heart.

Except for an oddball personnel like him who relied on missions to advance, most people usually seized any free time they had to cultivate. After all, no one knew if the next mission would be dangerous.

Although Radiant Tower prioritized the lives of its members, casualties were still inevitable.

"What do you mean by a private mission?" Gu Nan saw her appear and asked bluntly.

"A rather special kind of mission… Before that, I want to ask you a question." Qin Xuanji's face actually had a rare smile, as though she had stumbled upon something good.

"What?"

"I know a type of person who is naturally recognized by the universe and can gain benefits from the missions themselves. Are you this type of person?"

Gu Nan's expression turned serious. He knew that his peculiar behavior of eagerly searching for missions had finally aroused the suspicion of others.

Zhang Dongsheng and Tang Xuan might also suspect something, but they just didn't say anything.

Gu Nan's silence made Qin Xuanji understand his answer, so with bright eyes, she said, "Let's make a deal."
