Chapter 724: A Large Group of Haters Are Arriving on the Battleground
Translator: Noodletown Translations Editor: Noodletown Translations
In the early stage of Outlast, there were no supernatural phenomenons, but people in this place were all mentally-ill patients who had been tortured so hard that they were almost no longer humans. In other words, they were ‘monsters’.
Due to the failure of the experiments, these people’s appearances and thinking process all became different from ordinary people.
If you didn’t know that they were humans, you would think that they were monsters to begin with.
It would be best not to be caught by them. If you were caught by them, you might end up worse than in a supernatural phenomenon; you could never imagine what an unhinged half-human, half-monster being would do to you.
In the Yuanyang City Shop, the students were watching this elf’s livestream while eating potato chips.
On the screen, Sala bent down and sneaked into a control room.
[So lame.] Mu Qing crunched on potato chips and posted a bullet comment.
“I feel like she’s making herself into a ball and rolling forward.” Tang Yu and other students enjoyed this livestream very much.
On the screen, Sala’s ears perked up like those of a rabbit while she glanced around the room.
Seeing no danger, Sala said, “This must be the place, right?”
Then, she heaved a sigh of relief.
Next, Sala began to use the computer in the document room. Since the main character knew how to use computers, she had no problems logging into the computer and began unlocking the main gate.
“After I open the gate in this control room, I can get out, right? It feels so simple!” Sala said while she operated the computer.
At this moment, a creepy figure suddenly appeared on the surveillance monitor beside the computer.
“Ah-!” Her hand shook, and the mouse flew out of her hand.
Sala looked at the surveillance monitor and saw that the priest who had appeared after the main character fell from upstairs pulled down the power switch with a cracking sound.
The entire control room was instantly plunged into darkness. Meanwhile, the voice of the fat demon-like monster sounded outside the door.
In total darkness, Sala could tell that the footsteps were slowly moving toward this room.
There was no exit except for the door. Sala had nowhere else to go; she was trapped!
“Ah-!” Sala screamed inside, getting anxious in the room as she quickly walked around.
[There’s a locker behind you!]
[Hide in the locker!]
[Hahahaha! This elf is so afraid!]
[I think she’ll faint in fear!]
Enjoying the livestream, Su Tianji posted bullet comments and sipped iced red tea. Obviously, it wasn’t scary to experience the game through the screen.
“Master, do you think this elf will be caught?” Fenghua asked.
While the monster-like man broke down the door and entered the room, Sala instantly slipped into the locker behind her.
Through the slit on the locker and with the aid of the dim light outside the control room, Sala watched as the fat man searched the room and roared in a low voice, “You were here, right?”
Then, Sala saw the monster walking toward the locker that she was hiding in.
Clank! The locker next to the one that she was hiding in was opened.
This monster didn’t seem to find anything. Then, Sala heard a series of faint footsteps; it seemed like this man was walking toward her locker.
A drop of cold sweat slid down Sala’s face when she heard the footsteps getting closer.
[How about bursting out of the locker?] Someone tentatively suggested with a bullet comment.
[Right! Right! Right! If you burst out now, you will certainly catch him off guard!] The students in Yuanyang City Shop who were crunching away potato chips immediately posted bullet comments.
“Then, I will go out now…”
“I really mean it…”
Clank! Sala pushed open the door of the locker.
“Ahhhh-!” Then, she raced out as if her pants were on fire.
This elf was so fast that even the fat man who was about to open the locker door froze with his hand reaching out.
“Ahhhh-!” She vanished in a flash.
[Can this journalist run this fast…?!] The audience froze after seeing that.
While the audience enjoyed the livestream, something was happening in an alchemy room on the other side of the world.
Exquisite statues were placed around the alchemy room, and promotional posters of Forgotten Forest, the mystical realm made by the Crystal Workshop, were hung on the wall.
[It’s annoying…] Words jumped on the magic letter. [Lately, more and more people are beginning to sing high praise of Blizzard. I’m angry whenever I hear them bragging about the so-called Blizzard Workshop.]
[I’m furious. Yesterday, I bought a mystical realm made by the Crystal Workshop and was looked down by a player of World of Warcraft. What’s wrong with the mystical realm made by the Crystal Workshop? World of Warcraft has a complete world which seems endless; why would I want such a big mystical realm anyway?] – From Mage Delli of Stars Magic Union.
[How come their mystical realms are so good… Some players of the Legend of Sword and Fairy brag about it everyday in front of me. I can’t argue with them; all I can do say that they have a servile attitude to foreign things.]
[They even boast that it’s the origin of the world! Anyway, I trash talk Blizzard Workshop, Softstar Workshop, and Ubisoft Workshop everyday day since I feel annoyed whenever I see people using their mystical realms. Damn it! When I praised the new mystical realm of the Dulan Workshop last time, someone immediately rebutted me with the alleged Dulan Workshop’s failure in Silver Moon Forest. I was so furious! However, I just can’t argue with them; everything I say sounds weak.]
At this moment, a mage commented, [Didn’t you watch the last episode of Secrets of Mystical Realms? Master Auth and Master Lywood both expressed their opinions in the show, saying that the Legend of Sword and Fairy beautifies stealing since one of the female characters is a big thief. They even proved how playing World of Warcraft and the Legend of Sword and Fairy equals to treason!]
[Playing these games equals to treason?!] The mage who had been lounging on a recliner immediately bolted up as if he had just been given a shot of stimulant. He commented excitedly, [Well said! When did they say that? I want to watch it.]
[These are the conclusions that those masters made after thorough investigation and research.] The mage who previous commented replied.
Soon, many more messages appeared on the magic letter.
[Keep away from these mystical realms; masters issued warnings.]
[I’m astonished. Mystical realms’ quality doesn’t increase with the degree of complexity. Masters said that mystical realms need professionalism.]
[Masters said that using these mystical realms might be treason; let’s see if you’re using them.]
[My goodness…!] Instantly, these people felt like they stood on the moral high ground.
[Today, I’ll repost them all. Hahahaha! I feel like we are waging a holy war, Comrades!]
[Tell you a secret. I slipped into the magic forum of World of Warcraft, and I’m sure bedlam will break out when I post these messages in the forum.]
[Aren’t you afraid that they will beat you?]
[How can they? They don’t know where I am!]
[The problem is… these claims don’t have any supporting evidence.]
[I don’t care as long as they can give those people who love to brag a blow.]
[Hahahaha! Right! I’ll post them to all the people around me anonymously.] Mage Delli commented, [I know a damn kid near me who plays World of Warcraft and keeps bragging about it in front of me. Today, I’ll send these messages to his dad. Seeing this, I’m sure that his dad will give him a good beating when he brags about Blizzard again… Hahahaha!]
Meanwhile, in the distant Silver Moon Forest.
A silver-haired old elf read these messages and said, “These human masters seem to have solid data and facts…”
“Elder, should we go to the so-called Origins Internet Club with some people and see what Elder Sewell is up to?” Worked up by the word ‘treason’, these elves wanted to check things out with some people as if treason was being committed right now.
