Chapter 1285: Heir of the Thousand Dragons Ancestor

This chapter is updated by Novels.pl

Gu Qing Shan altered his appearance and stood below the city walls.

Void City.

Countless worlds and Combatants from the void were gathered here for business.

It was, without a doubt, a great city.

In the shadow of night, the metallic black city walls seemed like they had reached all the way to the sky without a limit.

Only by using his inner sight could Gu Qing Shan be able to see the very top of the wall resting above the clouds.

At this point, at a certain place on the wall, a spaceship that was several hundred meters long was docked right at the edge, with a large number of Professionists unloading its cargo onto the city wall.

Gu Qing Shan then noticed a {Yama King} realm cultivator also being part of the cargo-unloading group.

-this level of cultivation, yet he’s doing physical labor?

Gu Qing Shan’s inner sight scanned the cargo.

Only to see that most of the cargo being unloaded were unknown kinds of bones, some of which stayed still while being picked up, while some others flew straight towards the bodies of the ones picking them up, trying to burrow inside.

There was even a gem that directly exploded, turning into a cluster of grudgeful spirits that murdered the individual unloading it, then began eating their corpse.

The other cargo unloaders all acted at once to eradicate that cluster of spirits.

-each of these men had used their own means to suppress the cargo inside the boxes in order to move them.

It was indeed a dangerous job.

Gu Qing Shan’s inner sight remaining for such a long time drew the attention of the {Yama King} realm cultivator.

The {Yama King} realm cultivator also released his inner sight, then confirmed that he must be a Sumeru Lord realm cultivator through the strength of his inner sight before scattering his killing intent.

The man then sent his voice: “A word of advice. Do not use your inner sight to try and probe other people once you’ve entered the city, otherwise, your only outcome would be death”

After saying so, he casually formed a hand seal.

Gu Qing Shan felt a bit numb in between his eyebrows before he stopped seeing the scenery above the clouds.

-his inner sight was cut off.

“Ah… how unfriendly” he muttered.

A wolfman who was queuing in front of him turned around, then asked with a threatening voice: 「 You were talking to me? 」

“Not at all” Gu Qing Shan denied right away.

The wolfman glared at him a bit, then turned back.

Gu Qing Shan continued moving forward through the long queue.

It wasn’t too slow either, as a new group would be admitted into the city about once every 10 minutes.

Soon, Gu Qing Shan’s group was up.

A city guard walked up, then loudly declared: “When you reach the city gates, you can only get in if you are able to take one hit, if you can’t, you’ll die. After you die, your body will remain here to be used as fertilizer later on, understood? If you understand, then walk forward, anyone who changes their mind can hurry up and scram!”

The group then followed the guard to the city gates.

The wolfman looked back at Gu Qing Shan and grinned: 「 Weakling, if you don’t want to die, you had better——」

“Begin!” the guard shouted.

A flash of green light quickly passed through everyone’s body.

Bam!

Gu Qing Shan felt a light hit.

This level of power is… just about.

A second later.

The wolfman was sent flying by the green light, drawing his last breath as he landed.

Other than him, 5-6 other people were also dead.

Several guards came up to drag the bodies away.

The guard who led them here waved his hand, telling them: “Done, if you’re alive, you’ve passed the test for the lowest threshold of power. Get in, remember to exchange your money first”

Gu Qing Shan followed everyone through the city gate.

-quite obviously, the Wraith realm’s requirement of entry was extremely strict, to the point that the Wraith artifact spirit didn’t have any guarantees about sending me directly inside.

It said that this was a large-scale trading world in close vicinity with the Wraith realm, and that was the reason why the Wraith artifact spirit sent me here.

While Gu Qing Shan silently pondered, he soon reached the location for currency exchange.

A frog-like individual came forward to talk to the newcomers who had just been accepted into the city.

“I’ll make it clear to everyone here”

“Money in this Void City is forged from the image of the third fragment of the legendary ‘Traveler’s Proof’, each of which contains unique and unbelievable power”

Someone cut in: “Like the coins from the 900 million World Layers’ Strife Zones?”

The frog monster glanced at him, then replied: “The coins of that place were forged from the image of the fifth fragment of the ‘Traveler’s Proof’, they’re different from ours. Remember, you can’t use their money in our place!”

After saying so, he returned to his seat, waving his hand: “Each of you come up one by one, offer whatever you can and I’ll exchange them for money”

“Don’t blame me for not informing you ahead of time. After you enter Void City, you’ll find it hard to take even one step without money”

The group could only queue up and exchange money one by one.

Gu Qing Shan fell into thought.

-the Space-Time coins had a long list of titles, one of which was [Fragment of the Traveler’s Proof].

I didn’t think there would be another [Fragment of the Traveler’s Proof] here as well.

But then, what exact is this ‘Traveler’s Proof’?

What kind of place does the proof allow one to go?

While he was thinking, a small commotion could be heard up ahead.

The frog monster had just killed a spirit-type entity.

“And also, there was one more thing I forgot to tell you”

The frog monster signaled the guards to pull the spirit away while continuing to speak: “If you didn’t bring ample money and still tried to enter the city, that would be essentially wasting our precious work hours. This is equivalent to the crime of deceiving city officials, and you’ll be dealt with as such!”

Someone shouted in annoyance: 「 I can’t enter the city if I don’t bring enough money? What kind of rule is that!? 」

Someone else followed up: 『 That’s right, I came here because I heard that Void City is taking in a large number of people, I’ve never heard that I also needed to bring a large sum of money! 』

The frog monster coldly laughed: “Money is the most basic unit of measurement for your value, if you don’t have money, you won’t even be able to afford a meal for yourself, what qualifications do you have to talk about anything else?”

“If you don’t even have money, the only thing you can do after getting into Void City is to add another corpse to it”

“Or you can try to challenge me, if you win, you can go in; if not- heh”

“——Next!”

The next individual in the queue was quite the moneybag, taking a very long time to exchange currency with the frog monster, making it display an increasingly bright smile.

When this person entered the city, the frog monster stood up of its own accord and respectfully said: “Please enjoy your stay”

『 Hmph, I hope your place here won’t disappoint me 』the individual coldly said.

The frog wasn’t angered by that at all and instead smiled: “Please don’t worry, regardless if it’s information of the war between the Eternal Abyss and the Wraith realm; or if you wanted to purchase the most recently circulating Immortal Crafts; or even if you’re looking for powerful void monsters to be your subordinates, as long as you can provide the money, we can provide the goods”

『 Hm, that’s good to hear 』the individual left with a pleased attitude.

Gu Qing Shan fell into thought.

I originally only wanted to use this place as a relay station while I look for a way to enter the Wraith realm…

But now, it seems like this place would be worthwhile staying for a bit.

He quickly made his decision and pondered what valuable objects he might have to exchange.

… ah…

I still have the items I took from the Wraith Might Cang Wu Zhang’s bracelet.

There should still be some decent goods inside, but this world is too close to the Wraith realm, it could instead cause issues.

Or rather, there were many techniques to probe the background of any items within the infinite worlds.

For the sake of safety, I can’t really use them.

Then the only thing left is-

“Alright, next” the frog monster called out again.

Gu Qing Shan stepped forward.

“Hello”

“Hello, how much money would you like to exchange?”

“I choose to fight”

“You said… you wanted to fight me?” the frog monster’s eyes slowly narrowed.

Gu Qing Shan smiled and replied: “I have a use for everything I’m carrying, so I can’t exchange them with you, the only choice left is to fight”

The frog monster hesitated a bit, seeing how confident he was.

With my discerning eyes, I only needed to glance at the other people to know how strong they were.

However, this guy is wearing a powerful cloak that can conceal his presence, making it difficult to judge.

The frog had no choice but to take out a pair of glasses and put them on.

“Ah… the power level is quite decent” it silently muttered.

But in its head, the frog was cursing.

Damn you bunch of belligerent bastards, so eager to fight, every last one of you. Do all of you kill people for a living or something?

It picked out a few coins and arranged them in front of Gu Qing Shan.

“What are you doing?” Gu Qing Shan asked in confusion.

“The city is recruiting talented individuals from all walks of life. A fellow filled with killing intent like yourself also fits the city’s requirements, so following our rules, I need to give you a portion of start-up grant” the frog answered in an ill-humored manner.

“Ah? I didn’t know there was such a thing” Gu Qing Shan smiled.

He took the coins from the table.

“Wait a moment, other than the start-up grant, there was also the talent recruitment fees allotted for talents of different levels” the frog said.

“How is that determined?” Gu Qing Shan asked with interest.

The frog answered: “I can only judge the baseline of your powers, so if you’re willing to let me examine your combat prowess, I’ll be able to tell how much talent recruitment fees I’ll have to give you”

Saying so, it took out what looked like a small polaroid camera and showed it to Gu Qing Shan.

Gu Qing Shan received and checked it, then gave it back:

“Alright, go ahead”

-if people were looking to give him money, he would never refuse.

“Ready, say cheese”

The frog raised the camera and took a shot of Gu Qing Shan.

A picture slid out from the camera.

The frog took the picture and examined it.

It showed-

“Oh my!”

The frog exclaimed, quickly stood up, then took out a fist-sized pouch from behind.

“Sir, you are a top-level talent, I welcome you on behalf of Void City”

It bowed, then put the bag on the table with both hands.

As the bag touched the table, the metallic sound of numerous coins sounded, clearly filled to the brim.

“Please go head, sir——”

The frog turned around and showed him the way.

Gu Qing Shan took the bag, nodded to it, then strolled into the city.

Behind him, everyone was curiously watching the ‘picture’.

Only to see that the ‘picture’ depicted a tattered white skeleton with a human head and snake body, several lines of small text were noted below:

[Most recently killed monster by this Professionist: unknown. Grade: SSS]

[Attempted extraction of the Professionist’s Titles, one of which being:]

[Heir of the Thousand Dragons Ancestor]
