361 The Threshold of Three Thousand Contribution Points



So her name is Night. Is it her real one, or...

Li Yunmu paid no attention to the people jeering at him. 

Soon, the black-gowned woman turned away from him, which allowed Li Yunmu to calm down, and his mind returned to the four source manuscript in her booth. 

He had barely reached out with his hand to pick one of them when a black metal-colored hand stopped him. 

"What? I can't take a look?"

Li Yunmu was puzzled seeing that the one stopping him was precisely the black-gowned woman. 

"No can do," she said. 

"If you can't even read the summary, then why would anyone purchase it? I at least need to know the quality of these source manuscripts?" 

"Seeing the summary can be done, but you must pay three thousand contribution points first," the black-gowned woman said without any inflection in her voice.

"What?"

This time, Li Yunmu was truly shocked.

He hadn't expected that there would actually be such a person in this world who would indulge in their wild fantasies to the extreme. For one look at the summary, she asked for three thousand contribution points?

It was no wonder then that everyone only checked out the other books at her shop, but no one looked at the four source manuscripts. 

After all, there was apparently an unwritten condition which was outside the realm of reason.

Li Yunmu was unresigned and asked with a bit of hope, "If I paid you the contribution points, but decided that I don't want to purchase anything, what would happen in that case?"

"They won't be returned. The three thousand contribution points are for seeing the summary and won't be considered as the down payment," the other party replied in a righteous manner. 

Instantly, Li Yunmu was left dumbstruck and unable to reply. 

Three thousand contribution points was for just seeing the summary of the source manuscripts. Regardless of whether the person purchase it or not, exchange for it or not, it was all unrelated. 

None of the others standing nearby found this unusual, seeming to already know about the black-gowned woman's rules. 

However, Li Yunmu's next actions left them flabbergasted. 

"Alright, here are three thousand contribution points."

No one had expected that there would appear such an idiot in this world who would surprisingly agree to pay three thousand contribution points just to take a look at the summaries of some unknown manuscripts.

Everyone had thought that this kind of scene would never happen. Regardless of how long this black-gowned woman waited, no one would be duped. Yet such a person actually appeared. 

Everyone suddenly looked at Li Yunmu with pity and envy. If their gazes could talk, they would certainly be saying that he was an idiot with money. 

Even the black-gowned woman hadn't expected that there would appear someone who would agree to spend three thousand contribution points just to take a look at the summaries of her source manuscripts. She was distracted for a rather long time, before taking out her inscribed tile to receive the payment from Li Yunmu. 


The inscribed tiles used by the flux experts were actually a technologically advanced products, which Li Yunmu had noticed long ago. 

In the whole Origin World, there didn't seem to be the least bit of technology or electricity used, but the inscribed tile was actually a technologically advanced item. 

Besides the ordinary people who used silver sand coins and gold granules, physical and not flux experts used life points and contribution points for trading. Both of them didn't have any material existence and were only recorded on the inscribed tiles. 

Regardless of how much the user required, he could transfer that amount with just one thought from the tile after putting it in contact with the other party's inscribed tile. 

Li Yunmu didn't knew why such a technologically advanced product like this would appear in the Origin World. He could only think of the possibility that the people who occupied the highest positions in the Origin World meticulously suppressed the development of science and technology in this world. 

After handing over the three thousand contribution points, Li Yunmu didn't care what the others thought about him. He had his reasons to act like an idiot. 

First, the chance to encounter source manuscripts was just too rare. At the moment, he had more than three hundred ape gods under his control, but he didn't have the right cultivation methods to increase their strength. 

Second, the system had informed him that the paper of these source manuscripts was over ten thousand years old. Once Li Yunmu heard that, he was unwilling to miss out on them. 

If his gamble was wrong, he would just lose three thousand contribution points and that's it. He had a secret method to refine croton in his hands, so three thousand contribution points would end up as just a trifling amount to him in no time. 

After he paid the price, the black-gowned woman didn't stop him from looking at the summaries. When Li Yunmu read them one by one, he became more and more astonished. 

Although he couldn't see the full contents, just the summaries at the front, the more he read, the more shocked he became. He suddenly discovered that his thinking had been wrong. 

The four source manuscripts surprisingly weren't the lowest level trash. 

But that raised another question. Since they weren't the lowest level trash source manuscripts, why in the world was this black-gowned woman selling them here?

Could the natives of the Origin World be so extravagant that they could casually sell such manuscripts that could become the foundation of a sect? And not only one but four of them?

After a careful observation, he found that the four manuscripts surprisingly formed a set of inheritance. 

The first source manuscript was called Profound Dragon Cultivation. Its name sounded simple, but once Li Yunmu looked at the detailed summary, he became aware that this was a deadly flux skill which possessed extraordinary power. 

According to the summary, the creator regarded the user of this skill as a dragon lurking deep within the abyss. Once it rose, it would shock the four plains and dominate the eight aspects. 

Cultivating this skill would allow the user to absorb a portion of the enemy's flux energy from their attack and use the special revolution of this Profound Dragon Energy to bind it to one's body for a time being. That energy would then be stored in the user's naval until it reached a certain limit after which it would be utilized in a single shot. Thus, using this skill would allow the user to both absorb the enemy's flux energy as well as use it to counterattack

According to the overview, this skill possessed a certain amount of defensive capabilities as well as the ability to explosively increase one's energy. Once the stored energy exploded, the formidable might released would be extremely astonishing. 

"System, analyze the grade of this Profound Dragon Energy."

Li Yunmu didn't dare to look more. As a hint of doubt arose in his heart, he again picked up the second source manuscript which was named Profound Dragon Strength.

The same two words at the beginning of this skill provided further confirmation for Li Yunmu's conjuncture. 

After careful analysis, he found that Profound Dragon Cultivation and Profound Dragon Strength complemented each other. 

If Profound Dragon Cultivation absorbed enemy's flux energy and bound it to one's body until a certain amount was reached and it would be used for an explosive counterattack, then Profound Dragon Strength reinforced it.
