“Shifu, when did you arrived?” Qin Xiao Lou asked.

“I’ve been here for a while” Bai Hua Fairy replied.

“Greetings, Saint” the three spirit beasts all bowed their heads.

“Hm” Bai Hua Fairy pressed the air, suddenly two of the three tags from before broke apart.

“Blackmane Unicorn, Twilight Bluemoon Panther, from now on, both of you are banned from entering 1000 miles of Bai Hua Immortal country and never to use my name for anything ever again. If you violate this ban, this Saint will make sure you face the consequences”

“From now on, Flamecloud Chasing Sky Crane will become Gu Qing Shan’s mount, all your cultivation scriptures, pills and food will be provided by our Bai Hua Sect”


All three spirit beasts bowed their heads in compliance and didn’t dare to speak up.


Orchid Hall.

White goose gave Gu Qing Shan a jade tag, telling him: “Learn it well”

Gu Qing Shan took the tag, scanning it with his inner sight, then felt his heart jumped.

This was a cultivation scripture jade tag.

[Hundred Saints Core Formation Script]

This was Bai Hua Fairy’s own cultivation scripture.

In the past life, this scripture was extremely famous, widely regarded as the strongest Foundation Establishment realm scripture there is.

Cultivating with this scripture will give you about 20% more spirit energy than any other, not to mention a much easier time breaking through each time.

Everyone knows the name of this scripture, but since there isn’t a player who was able to become Bai Hua Fairy’s disciple, no one practices it.

White goose said: “Your venture to the frontline this time will probably leave you away from the sect for a while. After Shifu looked through hundreds of Foundation Establishment realm scriptures, she decided to give you the one she used to practice”

Gu Qing Shan replied: “I understand, I’ll definitely do my best to learn it”

How unfortunate that I don’t have any Soul Points right now, he silently complained to himself.

Of course this problem is easily solved if he just goes to the frontline to kill a few demon beasts.

Gu Qing Shan can also start learning the method right now the old-fashioned way, but since he has too much to do, using Soul Points to learn it directly is still the most convenient.

Xiuxiu stood on one side for a while, then finally came up to Gu Qing Shan and gave him a bag.

“Senior brother, there’s a lot of snacks inside, I had to choose them for very long. If you’re ever hungry eat a bit, ok?” Xiuxiu said.

“Ah, our Xiuxiu really is the best, after senior brother comes back, I’ll take you out to play again” Gu Qing Shan took the Inventory Bag and rubbed her head softly.

“Junior brother!”

A shout came from outside Orchid Hall.

Hearing that, Gu Qing Shan quickly stood up and went out.

A bit later, Qin Xiao Lou walked behind him into Orchid Hall.

“How’s your preparations?” Qin Xiao Lou asked.

“I’ve prepared everything, only need to wait until tomorrow to leave” Gu Qing Shan answered.

“Ha ha” Qin Xiao Lou patted Gu Qing Shan’s shoulder, saying: “Today’s matter with the spirit beasts, I thought about it a lot and concluded that it was my shortcoming that made you had to deal with that”

“We’re brothers here, no need to be like that”

“Hm, very well, but to make it up to you, senior brother has a great technique here to teach you” Qin Xiao Lou spoke mysteriously.

“What kind of technique?”

“This technique is something I improved myself, it’s guaranteed to let you experience all the glorious ups and downs of life”

Saying so, he tapped his Inventory Bag and took out a jade tag.

Looking at the jade tag and hearing his description of it, Gu Qing Shan suddenly felt his head hurting a bit.

The last time Qin Xiao Lou gave out a jade tag to Gu Qing Shan, white goose knocked it away.

It was the Long-ranged Spirit Nurturing Method, a technique specifically made to Qin Xiao Lou to hit on women.

It wasn’t until after Xiuxiu explained to him that Gu Qing Shan understood, not knowing whether to laugh or cry.

This time, he can’t predict what sort of thing he’ll bring out.

Qin Xiao Lou pridefully gave him the jade tag.

Gu Qing Shan couldn’t help but accept it.

As soon as he received it, the War God UI flashed a line of text

[Discovered an improved version of Super Presence Concealment Script, would you like to spend 10 Soul Points to learn it?] (1)

Gu Qing Shan was a bit surprised.

The Presence Concealment technique is a very common one, usually only usable in a few missions that require stealth.

This [Improved Super Presence Concealment Script] costs more Soul Points to learn than some of the Attack Skills he knows, so it’s probably one of the best Presence Concealment techniques.

But, what would this be used for?

Gu Qing Shan asked again: “Isn’t this just a Presence Concealment technique? How would I experience the glorious ups and downs of life with this?”

“You still don’t get it?” Qin Xiao Lou was acting all mysterious-like again.

“Yeah, I don’t understand” Gu Qing Shan followed up with him.

Qin Xiao Lou laughed heartily, then suddenly turned serious and said: “This technique’s true meaning is encompassed in 7 words!”

“I’ve never told this to anyone else, so junior brother, you must listen very carefully”

Seeing him so serious, Gu Qing Shan also unconsciously became serious and replied: “Very well, brother, please tell me”

Qin Xiao Lou very solemnly: “Faking a pig to eat a tiger” (2)

Gu Qing Shan was confused.

Qin Xiao Lou explained: “Go somewhere that there’s a lot of qi training realm cultivators, if anyone were to make you angry, just cancel the technique and show off your actual strength, you can easily scare them into begging for forgiveness”

“Using this technique to show off in front of female cultivators is satisfying both physically and mentally”

“But then” Gu Qing Shan asked, “what is the other party has seniors go out to defend them?”

Qin Xiao Lou clasped his hand: “This humble one is Bai Hua Sect’s Bai Hua Saint’s direct disciple, Qin Xiao Lou. Might I ask, brother, which sect are you from?”

“…You actually use Shifu’s name like that…”

“Absolutely do not tell her” Qin Xiao Lou hurriedly wave his hands, “that method is only for you to relieve stress”

“This is also my ultimate stress relief method, I’m only teaching it to you, my brother”

“How is it, senior brother really cares about you right?”


“Senior brother is being a suitable brother right?”


Qin Xiao Lou then looked at white goose and Xiuxiu, saying: “Ah, right, senior brother, junior sister, please don’t tell Shifu about this as well, this is because I’m worried about Qing Shan you know”

Xiuxiu reluctantly: “Because you said this is for third brother, I won’t tell”

“Senior brother, ehehe, I beg you don’t tell her as well, ok?” Qin Xiao Lou smiled brightly, asking.

White goose squints his eyes, coldly said: “Don’t worry, I won’t tell”

Qin Xiao Lou felt himself able to relax.

Thinking about it again, he praised himself for thinking so much about his junior brother.

After the rest of them left, there was only Gu Qing Shan left in Orchid Hall.

Looking at the jade tag in his hand, Gu Qing Shan still stowed it away in his Inventory Bag.

Fine, although Qin Xiao Lou’s methods can’t be called the best, at least his intention is good.

Suddenly, a flame talisman flew to him.

Taking it in hand, Gu Qing Shan was a bit unexpected.

Because this came from Gong Sun Zhi.

Using his inner sight, he scanned the flaming communication talisman.

Then he heard the message.

“Do you want to get some Military Merits?”

Of course he does, this is a matter of life and death to him!

He needs Military Merit to increase his rank, because unless he makes to it Zhao Wu Chaplain, he won’t be able to increase his cultivation at all for the next 3 years!

Gu Qing Shan quickly replied.

“I do, please teach me how, General Sun Zhi”

He sent the talisman away again with his answer.

Very quickly, the flame talisman returned with Gong Sun Zhi’s answer.

“During the previous campaign, you are the only surviving frontline soldier. Compile all the intelligence you have regarding the demon beasts into a proper report, listing out their characteristics, attack method, weaknesses. That itself is a great contribution”

Gu Qing Shan then remembered.

That’s right, the first campaign was meant to test the water for both demons and humans.

Demons had only just arrived at this world.

If it weren’t for the fact that Gong Sun Zhi and Ning Yue Xi discovered the secret regarding Shen Wu world, they wouldn’t have sortied such an overwhelming force.

Because they still haven’t grasped the power level of this world.

Humanity was the same.

And so, humanity is still very much in the dark about how strong demons are.

Being able to compile intelligence regarding the demons at this point would be a great contribution to the war indeed.

——of course he can’t just give everything away. After all, many demons still haven’t appeared yet at this point in time.

He has to think carefully about this.

Thinking so, he immediately took out a jade tag and started compiling the list of demons that would have appeared at the frontline into it.

No matter what, before the war even began, being able to gain Military Merit like this is a good thing for him.


(1) Presence Concealment: in cultivation novels, a person’s presence not only let others know where they are, it can also be used to tell how strong they are. Thus presence concealment doesn’t only hide a person’s presence, it also carry a meaning to reduce their presence and make them seem weaker than they actually are.

(2) faking a pig to eat a tiger: a Chinese proverb, it means making yourself seems weaker to get close to and defeat the opponent.
