Chapter 63 – Great Migration
“So. Much. Money!” Yun Ling looked at the system income notifications, and was very excited.
What was the experience of having tens of thousands of copper coins in daily income?
What was the feeling in selling all the items in her stores which were not useful?
Even more importantly, with cash in hand, with countless game materials being sold, what would the hoarding fanatic think?
To this, Yun Ling’s answer was: buy buy buy!
She sold large amounts of products, and bought large amounts of raw materials! With money coming in and going out, she was earning a lot of money. She would have the money to upgrade the market to level 3 soon!
Qiao Qiao was sitting on a stool and crafting when she suddenly received a system notification —
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: What are the attributes of the cotton shirt (white), and cotton pants (white)? What is the durability?]
Why did this sound like e-commerce……
Qiao Qiao thought inside as she moved quickly and sent the equipment attributes to the other.
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: Are you a life skills player raised up by a team?]
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: What is Rising Cloud City like? Can you tell me more in detail?]
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: Not for nothing. You can put up any cotton shirt/pant, price it 100 copper coins, and I will buy it. The equipment is about 50 copper coins, and the extra 50 copper coins will just be the price for the information.]
Qiao Qiao stilled.
Thinking, she answered, “This is not anything important, no need to pay me, I will tell you.”
“While I do business with familiar teams, it was not the team that raised me. I am living with my relative, and make a living through cooking and sewing.”
“Rising Cloud City is the best! You can shop for the materials you need on the streets, and the life skills players do not have to go outside to forage. After you make your product, there are many players asking to buy, you can easily sell. Sometimes, combat players will pick up blueprints when they kill monsters. If they do not need them, they will sell the blueprints.”
“Do you want to move to Rising Cloud City? You are welcome to come.”
“The residents here are very good, and there are no high level teams bullying others.”
After the messages were sent, the other did not respond for a long time. After a while, a new message appeared.
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: You describe a haven of peace that I do not dare to believe in.]
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: But thinking about it, you did not even charge for the information, you have no need to lie to me.]
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: Likely, only peaceful territories can create friendly players like you. If the people around you scheme all day, even if you are not willing, you will be pulled in, and have to also think about all things.]
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: Sister, thank you for telling me all this. I will move to Rising Cloud City immediately.]
Qiao Qiao answered, “We are all players. No need to be so polite. If possible, I hope the survivors of S City will come to Rising Cloud City to live. With more people, there is more strength, and everyone can work together to protect the territory.”
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: I just forgot to ask, are there any conditions to living in Rising Cloud City?]
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: If I excitedly went, and do not qualify, then it would be bad.]
Qiao Qiao sent, “There are no conditions, and you can become an official resident of Rising Cloud City if you pay 100 copper coins.”
Just after she sent the message, she thought of something and added, “If there is something, then it is that there is a strict requirement for character.”
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: ???????]
There was a row of question marks to express the other’s confusion and cluelessness.
Qiao Qiao explained, “I heard that a high level player in the territory finished a special mission, and has some magical equipment that can put residents of bad character on the blacklist and exile them forever from the territory. The ones making trouble were driven away and only the good residents are left.”
After a long time, the message showed.
[Almond Flower Town — Su Yan: That is great!]
In the past, Rising Cloud City had been like a lone island. No matter how well it was managed, no one knew of the city.
Ever since the market opened, the excellence of Rising Cloud City could not be disguised.
Countless players wanted to buy purple equipment, winter gear and food, but the number of transactions each day was limited. In the morning each day, there was wild buying in the morning for several hours. After the limit was used up, they could only stare for the rest of the time.
The players of other territories were depressed and restless, but they could not do a thing, just waiting for the quota to reset for the next day.
Some people who could not wait just changed territories.
“I will move to Rising Cloud City and buy what I want, without having to fight!” one person murmured as they packed up.
“Yes!” The other person said. “There are bullies everywhere, but at least Rising Cloud City is prosperous, has many experts, and it will be safer than other territories.”
“Right now, it is autumn, and there is time to move. When it is winter……if you do not get supplies, then just wait to die!”
Moving to Rising Cloud City suddenly became fashionable.
Yun Ling saw the population of the territory increase by the day, and felt very happy.
What made her even happier was that the business of selling storage backpacks and purple equipment was brisk, and she earned a lot of money.
She was not frugal, and bought a lot of game materials.
Sometimes, when the quota for the day was not used up, Yun Ling would even ask the players of other territories if there was firewood, berries, fish nets, and wood boats for sale.
Hearing that firewood could be sold for money, many people went mad.
In reality, the players all thought that this was not worth much money. If one took the time to pick, they would get it. Due to this, even if this was listed on the market, no one would buy firewood.
They had never thought that the hoarding fanatic Yun Ling would even buy firewood.
When the news spread, many players who were not strong in battle changed to becoming woodsmen, making a living by chopping firewood and picking up branches.
There were also people who gave up on hunting and turned to foraging, relying on selling game materials to survive.
For many days, the number of materials being sold increased greatly.
Yun Ling did not even go outside. If she was not busy making purple quivers and purple cloaks, she was busy browsing the market pages.
[Territory Name: Basswood Town]
[Items For Sale: 10 x Linen Cloth, 15 x Silk Thread]
[Price: 35 copper coins.]
[Inquiries: Liu Jia.]
[Territory Name: Almond Flower Town]
[Items For Sale: 20 x Flour, 20 x Corn Meal, 30 x Rice]
[Right: 120 copper coins.]
[Inquiries: Shen Yi Hui.]
[Territory Name: Locust Tree Town]
[Items For Sale: 6 x Willow Wood]
[Price: 30 copper coins.]
[Inquiries: Yuan Zhong Jun.]
Yun Ling swept the market and was very content.
She was experienced in the game. Also, the players who were not living well had another path to making a living.
However, there were all kinds of people.
Maybe because they heard that she liked to buy game materials, people started to purposefully raise the price, wanting to cheat people.
For example —
[Territory Name: Locust Tree Town]
[Items For Sale: 5 x Willow Wood]
[Price: 60 copper coins.]
[Inquiries: Guo Song Lin.]
This person sold less than others, but the price was multiple times higher. This was not a sincere offer.
To such people, Yun Ling always ignored them, and skipped the page.
[The Market is upgraded to level 3.]
[Each day, at most 200000 unit transactions can be made. (Buying and selling are counted separately)]
[The transaction area is expanded to the entire federation.
(Note 1: Both parties in the transaction must be in unlocked markets.)
(Note 2: In S City, if the distance is far, both parties must upgrade the market to level 2 to make contact.)
(Note 3: Outside S City, both parties must upgrade the market to level 3 to make contact.)]
The entire planet was 93% water, which was not habitable. The other 7% was land, and the citizens were scattered around the land.
The transaction range expanded to the entire federation, so it was like having contact over the entire planet. This way, it was possible to contact friends and relatives.
The system jumped out —
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Boss, is it you?]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong:Beta player, right?!]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: You built Rising Cloud City, right?!]
Her disguise came off so suddenly that she was caught off guard.
She calmly answered, “No, you have the wrong person.”
“There are only system territories in the game, I have never heard of player territories. This is common knowledge that all players know. You cannot bully me for being new to the network.”
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Do not lie! Your boss presence cannot be disguised!!]
Yun Ling was speechless.
She asked, “Who are you really?”
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: It is me! We met on the last day of the beta, did you forget?]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: You helped me by stopping the stone person boss so I could escape, and become a survivor of the beta, and get a special reward.]
When the other said this, Yun Ling recalled. “It is you.”
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Boss, you finally admit it……]
Yun Ling sent, “I am afraid of trouble and hide myself. When I meet people, I always say it’s a system territory.”
Yun Ling said, “Right, how did you recognize me?”
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: During the beta, your game id was “Yun Ling.”]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Isn’t Rising Cloud just the reverse of your name?]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Rising Cloud City is always first on the rankings. I have always suspected that it was a player territory. But I was unable to get into contact, and could not ask.]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: When I saw you selling rare and premium equipment in your own name, I believed it even more. So strong, you are definitely the boss I knew, not anyone else!]
What Zhao Xin Tong? She should change her name to “Sherlock — Xin Tong.”
Yun Ling said, “Be low key.”
Yun Ling said, “Remember to keep it a secret.”
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: I understand.]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: At the start of the game, I openly said that I was the lord, and it was very bad for me.]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: First, there were people kneeling and begging me to not charge them the overnight fee and let them into the territory. Then there were people shouting the system shop’s prices were too high, and not good for player development, asking for half off.]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Other people had delusions and tried to assassinate me. They hoped the lord token would drop, and they would get to be the lord.]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Damn it! Because of being soft hearted for a moment, I almost did not manage to survive the game. Later, I found it troublesome, so I masked my face, changed my equipment and melded with the crowd. Those people could not find me, and it finally settled…]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: The people who knew either died or went away. Finally, no one knew that Xin Tong Town was a player territory.]
[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: For a time, I did not even dare to add friends, and did not dare to tell people my name is “Zhao Xin Tong”. Can you believe that?]
Yun Ling thought, why not? She had predicted that there were villains everywhere so she had delayed making her lord territory identity public.
There was nothing bad about keeping herself concealed.
