Apocalypse Lord Chapter 65 “Eternal Night”

Chapter 64 | Table of Contents | Chapter 66

Last time, on Apocalypse Lord:

Hey now, all you players,

Put your lights on, put your lights on.

Hey now, all you archers,

Put your lights on, put your lights on.

Hey now, all you fighters,

Put your lights on, put your lights on.

Hey now, all you children,

Leave your lights on,

You better leave your lights on.

Because there’s a monster,

Living out past the shield,

Lumbering somewhere near.

There’s a Yun Ling,

With her torch in her hand,

She say I got nothin’ to fear.

There’s a darkness,

Lying over the world.

It’s still got a purpose to serve.

So let your light shine.

Deep into the dark.

God don’t let me lose my nerve.

Don’t let me lose my nerve.

This chapter has been brought to you by me and Smash10101.

Chapter 65 – Eternal Night 1

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Yes, yes.]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: It is a trivial matter for you, but a great help to me.]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Boss, do you have any troubles? Tell me, maybe I can help.]

Yun Ling had originally wanted to say she did not have any, but then she remembered and asked, “How is the ‘wharf’? Is the building useful?”

The wharf was a new building that she had not heard of during the beta. To avoid wasting her building slot, she would rather not unlock it now, and first learn from others.

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: !!! I know the answer to this one!]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: After the wharf is built, you can hire NPCs to build boats, weave fish nets, and then go out to fish. Each day, the harvest is random, fish, shrimp, crabs, shellfish, kelp, you may catch anything.]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: If the market is said to be for buying resources and the function is close to the mission hall, then the wharf is used to get a steady supply of food, and is similar to the farmland.]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Last winter, the wild resources did not refresh. But the crops in the farmland kept on growing, and there were still gains when going out to the sea.]

This was very good. Yun Ling thought, no matter what the time, food was the most important.

“Thank you for the information, I will think about it carefully,” she responded.

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Boss, no need to be polite!! Just ask anything, I will tell you all that I know!]

Yun Ling smiled. With the communication platform, it was easier to get what was needed. The “market” was very useful, and it was good to unlock it.

Before the territory expanded, it would take two hours on foot to get to the sea.

After the territory expanded, the seashore and the defensive shield were connected, and it was right outside the door.

Yun Ling knew that the reason she spent so much time on the way was not because the two were very far from each other, but that she had put all her free attribute points on stamina, and her movement speed was very slow……

If this was an NPC team with high agility, it would take them about an hour and a half to make the return trip.

“The territory buildings are complete, and it will be good to have an extra steady source of food.”

Thinking of this, Yun Ling opened the window and unlocked the “wharf.”

After doing this, -100 copper coins in the next second, and the wharf was quickly built.

The new wharf was against the shore, but it was covered by the defensive shield so she did not have to worry about it being attacked by monsters.

Yun Ling pointed with her index finger and kept on working.

铜币-10000。

Copper coins -10000.

[The Wharf is upgraded to level 2.]

[At most, it can hold 5 ships.]

“Now, I just have to wait for the NPCs to spawn.” After solving the problem that had plagued her for many days, Yun Ling was relieved and her face relaxed.

[Name: Torch]

Quality: Normal

Equip Effect: Illuminate scenery within two meters.

Price: 50 copper coins.

The torches were lit, driving away the darkness and illuminating the surroundings. The residents calmed down.

Some players knew more, and told their fellows, “Polar night, also called eternal night, 24 hours of darkness. If you have lived at the north or south poles, you will know, there are six months of extreme sunlight, and six months of extreme darkness.”

Their companions, “……”

Why were they forced to experience this without having gone to the poles?

The anger and discontent in the end all formed one thing in the end, “The trash game is inhumane again.”

“It is trying to kill the players.” The knowledgeable player sighed. “The game would likely only end the day the humans are extinct.”

His companion heard this and felt cold. If the players were all dead, then the game would be forced to stop?

It was not possible to argue against this. Because as time passed, the game had grown more difficult.

Even working so hard and suffering so much in order to survive, after a while, they had to face new challenges.

“It is too hard to live.” More than one person thought this.

As they talked, the fire light flashed.

The players were frightened. “What is it?”

“Was it the wind?”

“It should not be. The torches in the territory do not experience wind or rain, it is very safe.”

The fire flickered again, and after a while, went out completely.

The residents, “……”

So there was no fuel.

The darkness came again. Without the fire, the area was black and they could not see anything.

The guard ran towards the Woodworking Workshop to get more torches.

One person said, “If monsters come to attack when the guard is not present, what to do?”

Before they could finish speaking, someone covered their mouths.

A companion howled angrily, “Close your mouth!!”

They could not help but tremble when they heard this. They could not imagine what the territory would become if the words came true.

In the stone room, Leng Bai took linen cloth and wood to briskly make over twenty torches.

“What is the plan?” Mo Qi asked.

Leng Bai answered, “Just do what we usually do in the game. At most, send two people to hold torches, and pay attention to the surrounding movements.”

“So daring,” Mo Qi murmured, “You do not fear that the team will be killed outside.”

Leng Bai said, “I have observed. The monster’s attack rate is average, and their strength low. If not for the dark environment, they would be easy to kill.”

“Players can go out at any time if they have torches.”

“In reality, I think this night environment is easier to deal with than the cold. Most players are trapped in the territory because they have not yet reacted.”

Mo Qi, “……”

Why, after staying so long in Rising Cloud City, her old teammate also got infected with Rising Cloud City’s air, and seemed more like one of the natives of the city?

“What are you thinking about?” Leng Bai frowned.

Mo Qi said quietly, “The game does not have it easy, each person has a cheat.”

“What is your cheat?” Leng Bai was puzzled.

Mo Qi thought about it. “Knowing you?”

Leng Bai said, “……you win.”

“Torches for sale! Buy on sale for 10 copper coins!” A life skills player found the business opportunity and quickly made torches to sell.

Tian Zhe Han strode in front of the stall owner. “I want 30, how long for you to prepare them?”

The stall owner, “!!!”

He had a smile on his face and responded warmly, “I have stock here, and can give you all you need now!”

Tian Zhe Han took out 300 copper coins without a word. “Where are the torches?”

The stall owner solemnly took out the torches from the tattered linen backpack. “They are all here. Count them, is there 30?”

Tian Zhe Han counted and then nodded. “That is correct.”

He was about to walk away when he suddenly thought of something. “Make more, I may find you to buy at night.”

The stall owner was overjoyed and responded, “Yes!”

After sending away the big customer, he joyfully thought about how to spend the 300 copper coins.

The durability of the linen backpack was almost gone, and he needed a new one.

The ring that increased agility was worn out, and it was time for new equipment.

With spare money, he could save up some linen cloth, wood, and hoard some more food.

Thinking about it, the stall owner took a deep breath. He had gotten 300 copper coins but they were not enough. After buying some life necessities, the money was gone……

[Name: Grilled Cod]

Quality: Normal

Use Effect: Temporary night vision (lasts 1 hour).

Night vision?

Lu Chuan thought for a moment, and chose to eat it.

The sky was still so dark, and the night shrouded the world in a heavy manner.

But for Lu Chuan who had night vision, the surroundings were clear in his sight. Even though he was surrounded by the darkness, it did not affect him walking and fighting monsters.

“It seems that night vision is the key to the problem.”

Thinking, he slung his purple bow across his back, hung the quivers from his waist, and left with the brown leather backpack.

Outside the territory, it was frighteningly dark, and a person could not see his fingers in front of him.

But Lu Chuan walked easily with soft steps.

Suddenly, a group of monsters with fish heads and human bodies appeared in front of him.

Seeing Lu Chuan, the monsters moved towards their target. They were silent as they moved, like they were mounting an ambush.

“Night vision is so useful, everything in the surroundings are so clear.” Lu Chuan laughed softly.

He took out a special effect arrow from his quiver and attacked first.

Moments later, copper coins, equipment, skills, and materials dropped over the ground.

Lu Chuan picked them up.

At the same time, he had a clearer and more complete understanding of night vision’s abilities.

[Name: Steamed Cod]

Quality: Normal

Use Effect: Temporary night vision (lasts 1 hour).

[Name: Cod Stewed with Tofu]

Quality: Premium

Use Effect: Temporary night vision (lasts 3 hours).

After the products were made, Yun Ling thought, “If I am right, night vision can let players not be obstructed in this environment of eternal night.”

She prepared to eat the cod stewed with tofu.

The cod was tender and melted in the mouth. When together with the tofu and fish soup, it was delicious.

Yun Ling drank the soup quickly, and started to possess night vision.

Instantly, the surroundings appeared clearly in her sight. While the inside of the territory was still shrouded in the darkness, in her sight, this was not any different from the parts illuminated by the torches.

“I was correct.”

Yun Ling opened the market window and found Zhao Xin Tong to tell her of the discoverry. She also sent over the steamed cod for the other to taste.

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: !!!]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: We have cod here too! Each day, we can get a few dozen!]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong:…….sorry, was prematurely happy. We have the materials, but not the recipe.]

Yun Ling:”……”

How could an enormous territory not even get a cod recipe?

Yun Ling stated her doubts.

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Food made from cod can only increase night vision, not replenish HP or MP. I did not know that we would encounter eternal night, and thought that night vision was useless, so I sold them all off cheaply.]

[F City — Xin Tong Town— Zhao Xin Tong: Right now, only one NPC has a recipe, they know how to make “cod fish sticks”……]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: If I have to use the outside market to buy, I do not know how long it would take to buy the recipe. Boss, save me!!]

Yun Ling did not know whether to laugh or cry. “If you could not have used them before, why not save them? Why did you have to clear out and sell them all?”

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong:……because of poverty.]

The upgrades of the buildings needed capital. Other than food, equipment, recovery items and other strategic resources, she had sold all she could. Then, she finally raised enough capital to quickly build.

Who would have thought that one day, what looked like trash in her eyes became something necessary to survival?

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: How about this? I provide materials, and Rising Cloud City the skill. We split the products we make?]

She tried to discuss.

“Okay,” Yun Ling responded quickly.

As a hoarding fanatic, she had not wasted any blueprint she had gotten, learning on her own or giving them to the NPCs to learn.

Right now, the chefs A, B, C, D, and E all had cod recipes, and some even knew several recipes that used cod.

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: 360 degree Thomas rotation knee slide, thank you!]

[F City — Xin Tong Town — Zhao Xin Tong: Boss is really boss, you have foresight far better than ordinary people.]

Yun Ling thought, this was just the victory of the hoarding party.

Editor’s ramblings: I’ll stop using Santana songs for the recaps when they stop making it so easy.

Translator Ramblings: I don’t know Santana but Smash really makes it fit.

    1. Makes you wonder what the end objective is…in beta it was 10 survivors, so now…

  1. The game seems like it’s getting harder and crueller, but it also prepares materials to cope with the situation..heat negating food & equipments, cold negating foods, now night vision.. there’s always a way to survive
