959 Acting Skills That“re Off The Charts!
In less than half an hour since Bloody spread the news to bait, disguised as the skinny man, six different teams of convicts came one after another. All of them were killed before they managed to attack efficiently.
"A total of six rounds with 87 people. There are 7 people on imperial-level yellow gold-rank, 51 imperial-level crimson gold-ranks, 29 imperial-level black gold-ranks." Bloody shared the data. "Looking at these people's memories, none of them could contact the regional chief directly and none of them have the regional chief's coordinates. However, there are a few imperial-level yellow gold-rank people who knew imperial-level white gold-rank and imperial-level purple gold-rank powerhouses. We've confirmed that those people have the contact information of the regional chief and his deputy."
"Also, there isn't much stuff on these 87 people. They only have some armors and weapons, but they don't have any storage equipment. I've gotten my imperial-level parasitical puppets to search the place they stayed in. The search should be done within half an hour."
"We'll just wait then and carry out the next plan after we're done with the search." Lin Huang nodded.
The armors and weapons that the convicts had were just ancient relics, so they were worthless to Lin Huang. What he desired the most was storage equipment such as Emperor's Heart Rings that were put away where they lived. Although those local convicts could not open them, he could unlock them when he got out of there.
One must know that many candidates died in every trial. Although those geniuses who participated in the trial including the Princes from Dynasty had a low combat strength of mere immortal-level, they would definitely have many resources in their storage equipment. They might even have some unique treasures.
After waiting for over half an hour where they were, Bloody's parasitical puppets brought back the loots one after another. They handed over the temporary storage rings that did not require any password to Bloody one by one.
Bloody was satisfied with the loots they acquired this round after calculating. "We've obtained 137 storage rings, 26 other storage equipment, and some other miscellaneous stuff."
"So, what do we do next?" Lin Huang nodded and asked.
Bloody took out Ge Nan's communication talisman and handed it over to Lin Huang. "There's a person named Shi Qiang in the contact book whose combat strength's on imperial-level white gold-rank. He was put in this prison the same day as Ge Nan was. They're very close. He's a great breaking point. Most importantly, he knows where the regional chief lives."
"Got it." Lin Huang took the communication talisman.
As the talisman lit up, Bloody disguised as Ge Nan's voice. "Brother Qiang, something happened. Li Li's dead!"
"What happened?" The person on the other side of the talisman sounded rather shocked.
"A bunch of candidates attacked us earlier and I managed to escape, but Li Li and the rest were killed. I want to take revenge!"
"Please calm down and tell me the details. The bunch of immortal-level rank-9s attacked you and Li Li? Were there many of them?" Shi Qiang proceeded to ask.
"There were at least 100 of them. I've no idea how they managed to gather. Theoretically, it's only been more than an hour since the trial officially began. The probability of two candidates who know each other and meeting is low, let alone 100 of them. This bunch of people might have cheated in their own way," Bloody proceeded to speak, "Furthermore, the key isn't the number of people. They have an Imperial Censor among them with a couple of imperial-level yellow gold-rank imperial monsters. Each of them has an ability on par with mine."
"They should be members from some major organization since they managed to gather 100 people in the beginning. They must've used some special item for this trial." Shi Qiang's voice soon came. "The Imperial Censor that can control imperial-level yellow gold-rank imperial monsters whom you mentioned is most probably the seed player that's fighting for the Protoss quota from a major organization. These people are putting in so much effort to obtain the Protoss quota."
"Brother Qiang, I'm suspecting that they've killed the imperial-level yellow gold-rank people around. I tried contacting Tao Yu and Ji Dong, but I couldn't find them."
"It can't be…" Shi Qiang was in disbelief when he heard that. "Give me a minute. I'll get someone to contact them."
Not long later, Shi Qiang's voice came again. "We've basically confirmed that there are five imperial-level yellow gold-ranks around your area with whom we've lost contact. There are some imperial-level crimson and black gold-ranks with whom we've lost contact at the same time. We haven't confirmed the number at the moment.
"It seems like this team of candidates have formidable ability and high speed! You're fortunate that you managed to escape alive."
"I might've been dead if they didn't attack Li Li first." Bloody sounded bummed. Its acting skill was off the charts.
"Stop blaming yourself. Find a safe place and hide. I'll assemble my people here and attack those candidates." It was clear that Shi Qiang had completely fallen for the lie Bloody came up with.
"Brother Qiang, I'd like to join too. I want to avenge Li Li!" Bloody proceeded to showcase its best act.
Shi Qing fell into silence for a moment before nodding. "Alright then. but you must promise me not to act on impulse and follow my orders!"
"I'll send you the assembly point later." The communication talisman dimmed as soon as Shi Qiang was done speaking.
"Your acting skill's getting better." Lin Huang gave Bloody a thumbs-up.
"It's actually easy to act. I have Ge Nan's memory, so I know his speaking habit and tone. In addition to the experience of playing other six characters before, I got into character easily this time." Bloody smiled as it spoke. "But the main reason Shi Qiang believes in me is because of the close relationship he has with Ge Nan. Instead of saying he believes in me, it's more like he believes in Ge Nan. I merely used his trust."
"I was thinking that you put too high a number when you mentioned over 100 people and I wondered if he would suspect that." Lin Huang nodded with a smirk. "Never had I thought that he'd find a reasonable explanation for how the 100 people gathered around based on the trust he has for Ge Nan."
"Indeed, I didn't have any explanation for that, so I mentioned that I had no idea how so many people gathered at the beginning of the conversation." Bloody nodded too.
"So, now we'll wait for Shi Qiang's news. We'll attack once we have the assembly time and coordinates instead of waiting for them to come."
Everything Shi Qiang said was included in Bloody's plan. Even the revenge it mentioned at the end was to obtain the assembly coordinates so that they could initiate the attack.
Approximately half an hour later, Shi Qiang sent the assembly time and coordinates over. It was clear that he already gathered his men.
"Assembly time — 11.30 a.m. Assembly point — Shadow Canyon entrance…"
