Chapter 89: Four Powerful Cards in Hand!
The room in the Level 7 Floating Tower dimmed into darkness. Han sat down in the darkness, pulled out an automatic water collection cup and energy bar and started eating in small chunks.
The China region on earth was rich with people who had spoiled mouths (TL: as in they are very picky with food). Yet although Han was Chinese, his non-pickiness for food almost reached an outrageous extent. This time exploring the A-19, he only brought two things, water and energy bars.
The water collection cup was a small and black light fiber texture cup. It could automatically collect moisture from the air and convert it into pure drinking water through its condensation system.
As for the energy bar, it was a dark red emergency food that was rich in protein and all kinds of vitamins. A small bar was enough to ensure a soldier’s energy consumption for a day.
The vast majority of soldiers all hated this type of superiorly effective energy bars because it tasted so bad. It was like chewing up plastic, scentless and tasteless. It was designed that way so that when you eat you won’t be discovered by monsters that had a keen sense of smell.
Food that was like chewing on wax, Han was actually having a good time eating it. From a certain perspective you could say that he had high tolerance and could endure more hardship than an average soldier.
Suddenly, eerie sounds came from the darkness. After the inside of the floating tower completely darkened, some lives hidden inside the tower began to appear.
“Eye of Darkness!”
Han whispered inside his heart, and when he opened his right eye again, his eye had completely turned black.
By observing with his dark power, Han saw many strange creatures. They were clearing up the battlefield, dragging those opponents that Han killed into the depths of the tower, into some sort of cleaning machine. There was the sound of bones and flesh getting minced.
Han was shocked. So the existence of Orcs was not virtual, but real! What he just killed were all living creatures!
As for the things that were clearing up the battlefield, they were very strange with a shining lit region on their chest. It should be their energy source so they might actually be a bunch of robots.
Han was lost in thought, ever since he entered the domain, he felt something was strange here. The words were written in the Milky Way Universal language. This could still be explained because mankind originally learned this language from the prehistoric domain.
And then it was the activation of the floating tower. It seemed as if this set of systems from the prehistoric civilization regarded Han’s existence as the same as the beings from the prehistoric civilization. Not only was the A-19 like this, but all the other relics too.
Does this prove that, the prehistoric intelligent beings and humanity were common in a way?
That’s why humans could easily accept everything left behind by the prehistoric domain: their technology, machinery, genetic modification technology, etc.
Speaking of genetic modification technology, dark beasts must be mentioned. They were something created by the prehistoric civilization so they don’t reproduce naturally but were instead, created by automated production systems.
Thinking back to the time Li Yu led the brothers at the Extinction Domain Administration, their goal was actually to find C-level’s biological breeding hub inside the relic and destroy it, otherwise there would always be dark beasts and their number would grow.
Of course, humans can also use the same means to prevent the manufacturing of dark beasts in higher level relics but unfortunately, these A-class relics were way too difficult to manage. As well, the location of the central production facility was also very mysterious. Up until now, there were only a few A-class relics that were compromised and became safe points.
These A-class relics that no longer had dark beasts were all under the control of the 12 permanent members of Milky Way without exception. They vigorously studied the relic interior, and copied the technology that was left behind by the prehistoric civilization, ultimately achieving the superior position of the 12 permanent members today.
Han was thinking, if dark beasts could be manufactured, then what about these Orcs? They should also be manufactured by a Gene development center that also trained these soldiers right?
Han’s curiosity began to grow, he really wanted to go look at these robots that cleaned up the battlefield and see where those dead Orcs were sent off to? Where are the living Orcs kept? How does this huge floating tower really work?
Thinking back and forth, Han decided to not make any move. Spying on the floating tower’s interior for secrets was no doubt dangerous. If Han wanted to live, then he bettered follow the rules inside this relic.
The robots were really quick at their job, the inside of the floating tower was soon restored to the previous state, and even the odor of dead bodies was gone. The robots all disappeared and everywhere had gone silent.
Looked at the time, Han could rest for another 3 hours. He put two nuclear energy pills inside his mouth, then laid on the cold alloy floor and slowly closed his eyes.
During the short rest, Han had a dream, a very terrifying dream.
He dreamed that the relic was activated by an unknown strength, the gene development center, in addition to manufacturing dark beasts, also began to manufacture even more terrifying fusion creations. Soldiers of mankind fell one after another and the whole relic was in chaos. Han stood on top of a mountain and witnessed the brutal massacre, bodies piled up to be mountains, and blood flowed and formed rivers.
The preset alarm clock pulled Han back from the nightmare. After a few minutes the intermediate killing machine test will begin, and Han’s goal was 10 thousand kills! Ten times more than before!
While there were still a few more minutes left, Han practiced a bit of 46 Ensemble.
Under the influence of drugs, Hans physical strength and energy has been completely restored. His high tolerance to toxicity was one of Han’s biggest cards in his hand, allow him to rely on drugs to restore energy.
