Chapter 5.1 – An Impossible Task
“Wei Batian violated the regulations of the City of Sin and killed Zhang Xuan, one of the male protagonists. Now, the order of execution is issued to all the characters. Any person who finds any trace of Wei Batian must report to the medal immediately. At the same time, the person who finally kills him will be rewarded with ten times his sin points.”
The first thing that came into view left 233 stunned, his eyes stared incredulously at the bright screen before him…
Killing the protagonist, which is one of the absolute taboos would cause the villain his life! If found, he will be directly wiped out by the city and disappear into nothingness like he didn’t exist in the first place.
Is this villain tired of living? He was looking for his own death!
Violating taboos this serious, Wei Batian would be directly deleted for sure, but because the City of Sin couldn’t directly interfere with the parallel world, it contacted the players through their medals.
Therefore, although Wei Batian had just committed a violation, the system couldn’t directly punish him, and could only do so upon his return to the city.
The reason for these restrictions was to avoid the excessive interference of City of Sin to the parallel world, because the plot development of the parallel was a live broadcast.
In this case, if something unexpected happens in the parallel world, the city could only assign tasks to other characters to maintain. If it was really impossible to make up for it in the end, then the novel would be ruined.
Generally speaking, there are two ways to return to the City of Sin from the parallel world. One was to apply for a return by first completing the tasks by performing the given role. Another was the death of the character, which was the passive way to return to the city.
Obviously, Wei Batian had violated the taboo and was unlikely to take the initiative to apply for his return. Therefore, the system had to find a way to make this happen.
That is why the system issued such a task involving all the villains to pursuit Wei Batian.
No matter how powerful Wei Batian was, he was still nothing compared to the strength of the thousand villains coming after his head!
Besides, he appeared as an enemy for the descent people like the protagonist. In short, Wei Batian was now hunted by the whole parallel word, villains and not villains alike!
At the bottom of the task details was a picture of Wei Batian, along with other people reporting the real-time dynamics of Wei Batian through their medals appeared.
In the latest discovery, Wei Batian was wounded and thus, fled to the border of the Dragon and Tiger Gang Mountain after being besieged by several people. That is to say, he was within 233’s territory…
233 immediately stiffened. At this very moment, the violator must have been hiding anywhere near him…
It is estimated that the slow progress of the plot is also due to this accident. Looking at the screen, 233 was able to understand why, but one thing made him wonder.
Wei Batian was a big boss, and those who were qualified to play boss were all veterans. In theory, they are experienced, and it was impossible to make such low-level mistakes. But why? Why did he accidentally kill the protagonist? Or was it accidental?
There must be some reason, but the system didn’t write it down. All people needed to do was follow the task without knowing the underlying reasons…
233 couldn’t figure things out but nonetheless, he thought of ways he could handle this mess. Since he had received this task, he just needed to arrange people to patrol around.
This was a good decision! He smiled to himself. For if he couldn’t find him, the system won’t punish him. After all, the gap in power between him and Wei Batian was too big.
According to the force setting in this parallel world, he was only a Level three **Wu Zong, while Wei Batian was a Level 5 Wu Zun, only one step away from the highest realm, Wu Shen. The difference between them was enough to crush him, the weaker one into ashes.
Moreover, their force was an entire realm apart.
**T/N : Five realms of martial arts
Wu Zhe – Martial Soldier
Wu Shi – Martial Master
Wu Zong – Martial Elder
Wu Zun – Martial Ancestor
Wu Shen – Martial God
The huge gap made 233 dare not even give heed to the idea of taking action, so he didn’t take it too seriously. What he needed to consider more now was how to fill in the delayed schedule of activities.
Now that the heroine was still in the last boss scene, it was certain that the heroine crossing path with him and his gang would probably not happen soon. During this time, how should he manage many people under his command?
While soaking in the river, he thought of his situation thoroughly, but his eyes unconsciously caught his morbid reflection in the water, and immediately his brow wrinkled.
His character’s face was disgusting and it irked him to no ends!
