After meeting up, they headed towards the Mission Area.
“Do you have a target for the mission?”
In the circle, Yu Banxia, Qu Qianfan, Wang Liuliang, Lu Qianqian, and the rest were familiar with each other.
Jiang Li and Yan Hong did not hang out with them all the time, so their relationship was naturally slightly worse.
External missions required a comprehensive consideration of distance, position, difficulty, possible enemies, things to prepare, etc. It was impossible to make a decision on the spot.
They must have discussed this before. The only person who did not know about the details was Jiang Li.
“Hmm, although I gained quite a lot from the previous harvesting mission, I have been exploring in the forest. There is a shortage of supplies in the forest and I have to be on guard against any dangers. It is indeed too tiring.”
Everyone else agreed with Yu Banxia, especially Lu Qianqian. She was going crazy after not showering for half a month.
“So this time, we plan to accept a mission in a mortal city.”
Jiang Li looked at the second mission board in the Mission Area. It was a mission recommended to mid-stage Qi Refinement realm disciples.
Compared to the mission given to the initial-stage Qi Refinement realm, the reward for this mission was obviously a level higher. In contrast, the difficulty of the mission was naturally higher.
Some simple combat missions, such as hunting or cleaning up some of the lowest level demonic beasts, could already be seen on the board.
“So mortal kingdoms also have the ability to issue missions to cultivation sects?”
Jiang Li took a closer look, and to his surprise, he did find quite a number of requests issued by the mortal kingdom.
“In any case, the cultivation world relies on the mortal world. The cultivation seeds that join the sect every year and the food supplies that we use, aren’t they all from the mortal countries?”
“As a reward, the Immortal Cultivation Sect has a certain obligation to protect the mortal kingdoms.”
“Of course, every time a mission is issued, the price that has to be paid will make a country suffer.”
Yu Banxia had an immortal background, so she knew more about this than Jiang Li.
But thinking about it, regardless of the form of development, the basic population construction was of utmost importance. If people were eaten up by demons and monsters, wouldn’t cultivating become pointless?
“This is the mission we are going to accept. A large number of children are in a coma in the Southern Seal Kingdom.”
“The specific details of the mission were not mentioned, but there were no casualties. It is just an ordinary investigation mission.
“We can relax. Even if we can’t complete it, there won’t be any danger.”
Yu Banxia handed him a few pages of information.
Jiang Li took a few glances. Just as he said, it was just a simple inspection mission.
“Alright, I have no objections. When do we set off?”
[Name: Yu Banxia, Gender: Male, Class: Cultivator, Level: Mid-stage Qi Refinement, Danger Level: Medium]
[Name: Qu Qianfan, Gender: Male, Class: Cultivator, Level: Initial-stage Qi Refinement, Danger Level: Low]
[Name: Wang Liuliang. Gender: Male. Class: Cultivator. Level: Initial-stage Qi Refinement. Danger Level: Low]
[Name: Lu Qianqian, Gender: Female, Class: Cultivator, Level: Initial-stage Qi Refinement, Danger Level: Low]
Jiang Li’s appraisal skill swept through the seven people.
In the cultivation sect, it had been a long time since Jiang Li had used appraisal to scan people.
He was afraid to use it casually, if some powerful cultivator discovered this, he would be in deep trouble.
However, Jiang Li could be considered to have a deep understanding of the few of them. Their strength was definitely inferior to his, so there was no harm in appraising them.
Among them, the mid-stage Qi Refinement realm Yu Banxia was undoubtedly the strongest. The medium danger level meant that he already had the ability to cause some injuries to Jiang Li.
After they agreed to set off the next day, they left to make their final preparations.
Jiang Li arrived at the outer sect graveyard. The closer he got to the center, the lower the temperature became.
When he reached the center of the graveyard, he could see that there were many ice crystals mixed in the dark soil.
This was the place where he had always cultivated. The fifteen ghostwood tree wooden stakes were also buried here.
Jiang Li’s interest was suddenly piqued. He walked up, squatted down, and slapped the ground with a single hand while letting out a low grunt.
“Impure World Reincarnation! Rise!”
As soon as he finished speaking, a pitch-black coffin slowly rose from the ground in the center of the circle formed by the fifteen ghostwood tree wooden stakes.
On top of the coffin, there was a thick and long chain wrapped around it. As the coffin rose, there was a rustling sound.
Alright, this was not ‘Impure World Reincarnation’, and inside this coffin was nothing more than a zombie.
Jiang Li had been in the outer sect graveyard for a long time, but he was not just meditating. He spent quite a bit of time selecting a complete corpse that was about to awaken into a zombie.
Furthermore, judging from the tombstone, it was originally a late-stage Qi Refinement disciple from seventy years ago. However, due to an accident, it died early on the path of cultivation and thus lay in this place where no one cared about.
Due to some special arrangements made during the sect’s burial, the Yin qi and corpse qi were suppressed, preventing it from truly becoming a zombie for a long time.
It was not until Jiang Li dug it out and used the ‘Zombie Puppet Technique’ to plant the ‘Zombie Seed’ that the shackles binding it were released.
After dismantling the setup, the Yin qi and corpse qi that had accumulated for decades caused this corpse to transform into a bloodthirsty white zombie with an inch-long white fur in front of Jiang Li.
However, before the Zombie Transformation, the Zombie Seed had already been deeply implanted into the corpse. Even after the Zombie Transformation, the white zombie had no ability to break free from Jiang Li’s control.
After some processing and guidance, Jiang Li placed the white zombie and a large pile of items of extreme yin into the coffin made of ghostwood.
Then, he used the chains that tied up a thousand prisoners who had been sentenced to death at the execution ground.
In the end, he buried the coffin into the Feng Shui formation core formed from fifteen ghostwood tree wooden stakes. It had been nourished by the dense Yin qi and corpse qi in the outer sect’s burial mound for several months. Now, it could finally be used.
Grabbing the chain with one hand, Jiang Li lifted up the coffin, slung it over his shoulder, and turned to leave.
With his current strength, this coffin of more than a hundred kilograms of weight was nothing.
“Jiang Li, you…?”
The next day, when everyone gathered at the entrance of the Scripture Storage Valley, everyone, including the disciples guarding the entrance, were shocked by Jiang Li’s ‘luggage’.
They did not know if they should say that he was not afraid of death or that his brain was not good.
He brought a coffin with him when he went out on a mission?
To what extent was he afraid that he would not be able to have a place to sleep after he died…
