Chapter 1: The Title of the Undefeatable King
“Fairsky, have your feelings really changed?”
“Gee, I never realized that Sunshine was such a charmer. He had Fairsky in his grasp before we even noticed.”
As soon as we returned to Infinite City, everyone gathered around us and bombarded Fairsky and Sunshine with questions. The embarrassed and cornered couple had no choice but to answer the rush of interrogations. Everyone’s faces were grinning with their blessings for Sunshine and Fairsky. Only Lolidragon, who knew the whole story, wasn’t grinning. I spied her sighing from the corner of my eye.
“In any case, we wish the two of you all the best!” Everyone laughed joyously.
“Th-thanks everyone,” Fairsky stammered.
“Okay, that’s enough. Stop embarrassing Fairsky and Sunshine, everyone. Now come and listen to Lolidragon’s explanation of the latest patch for Second Life.”
Wolf-dàgē grinned and beckoned to us.
Everyone quieted down and looked at Lolidragon, and so she started to explain the details of the patch. “The main focus of this new patch is making Second Life more realistic. Some common aspects of everyday life that weren’t necessary before are now required. For example, previously in the game, you didn’t have to shower or bathe because your body would never get dirty, but after the patch is installed, if you didn’t shower after a day of fighting, the stench would become unbearable.”
Take a bath? I suddenly remembered, Even though I am a guy, I have never seen my “manhood” before. If we have to start taking baths, wouldn’t I have to look at it? Ahem… I never thought that the first time I would see one of those things (not including the incident where I collected the dragon ones for gold), would be on myself. Whoa, I can’t even begin to explain my emotions…
“Prince, if you are afraid to wash that part of your body, I can help you! Just relax and spread your legs…” Lolidragon’s sarcastic remarks drifted over the PM channel.
“Hey!” Spread my legs?! I thought, Are you delivering a baby? I couldn’t stop myself from rolling my eyes at Lolidragon.
“But you still have to go to the toilet by yourself,” Lolidragon muttered to no one in particular.
What? I need to go to the toilet too? My mind went blank for a moment. So I would have to experience using my XXX when I go to the toilet as well?
“Second, except for the ones involved in training, the NPC population is going to be decreased. For instance, the NPC shopkeepers in the Sun, Moon and Star cities will disappear eventually and be replaced by real players.” When she saw that I was still mulling over the previous topic, Lolidragon giggled to herself and then continued her explanation. After she had finished her sentence, Yu Lian-dàsăo frowned.
“Although it wouldn’t cost any more money to hire players over NPCs, they will be harder to manage.” Yu Lian-dàsăo muttered, wondering to herself whether the patch was good or bad news.
Finally, Lolidragon uttered the most important part of the explanation. “I think the most important change in the patch is that Sun, Moon and Star City will be open for conquering by players.”
“So, the rumors are true.” Wolf-dàgē grinned. “What does everyone have in mind?”
“That’s obvious! Of course we should go and conquer them!” A spark danced in White Bird’s eyes, as if she had been waiting for this moment all her life.
“Conquer the three cities; unite the Central Continent!” Nan Gong Zui tossed down the eight words strongly.
