Chapter 1199 How to Make A Fool Of Oneself
“Yes! The craftsmanship on the jade slip is a little bit helpful to me.” The lanky craftsman smiled and continued, “What do you want to know? Ask away!”
A cold smile flashed through Su Mo’s eyes, it was only a little bit helpful, was it?
What he had just inscribed on the jade slip was the most advanced and important piece of craftsmanship knowledge passed on by the craftsman Ou Lianzi.
Although these craftsmanship knowledge were not complete, even a little bit was very precious.
Yet he had said it was only of a little help.
Su Mo was not sure of his craftsmanship level and that was why he had brought out such a valuable gift.
However, he was not stupid. He could see that this person was probably also only a disciple, he could not be a craftsman master.
“I want to know what requirements and benefits are there to becoming a craftsman disciple or master in the Craftsmen’s Guild.” Su Mo asked solemnly.
“One does not need a high level in craftsmanship to become a disciple but needs to be talented in craftsmanship and also need one of the masters of the guild to be willing to take a disciple!”
The lanky craftsman had taken Su Mo’s jade slip and was very happy. He held back nothing and continued, “Furthermore, a disciple must serve the guild forever!”
“As for the masters of the guild, they need to be at the Imperial level. I already said earlier that it’s impossible for you to be a craftsman of the guild!”
“However, since you asked, of course, I will not hide it from you. Our Craftsmen’s Guild is a special faction and is formed of a great many craftsmen. The purpose is to study and discuss craftsmanship together. As long as someone is a craftsman of the Imperial level, they can join our guild regardless of tribe or faction. The guild will not interfere in personal freedom and the craftsman does not need to make any contributions to the guild.”
The lanky craftsman’s mouth was like a machine-gun cannon, it chattered without stopping and quickly explained everything to Su Mo.
He smiled to himself. None of this information was secret, they could have asked anyone such things.
Yet these things that everyone knew had allowed him to easily obtain a precious death essence of an Imperial craftsmanship. This was a wonderful thing.
The guy in front of him was truly a country bumpkin!
Thinking of how he had asked earlier if there were Honorables in the guild, the lanky craftsman could not resist laughing out loud.
This was the stupidest question he had ever heard. The Craftsmen’s Guild had stood tall in the Infinite Region for millions of years, it was known to all, yet someone had asked such a stupid question!
The lanky craftsman was not afraid of offending Su Mo because not only could Su Mo not become a master in the guild, he could not even become a disciple because none of the masters were currently taking students!
Hearing his words, understanding flashed across Su Mo’s face. He finally understood, this so-called Craftsmen’s Guild was not that kind of faction.
It was only a loose organization formed by craftsmen, not limited by any kind of clan or power.
The purpose of forming such an organization was to increase communication between craftsmen and to progress together.
As for these weapons being sold in the hall, they had probably been made during exchanges between craftsmen and provided income for the guild.
Su Mo could not help but sigh in admiration. The outside world was indeed unusual, to have such a holy land for craftsmen.
“I wish to become a disciple of this guild, I wonder if you could help to recommend me?” Su Mo asked the lanky craftsman with a salute.
“Right now the guild is not taking students, come back in a few months!” The lanky craftsman shook his head upon hearing Su Mo’s words.
Su Mo furrowed his brows. It was not true that he wanted to become a disciple, he just wanted to find somewhere safe to stay. He had not expected that they were not taking students!
He did not want to leave the guild right now. It was safe enough here while there was boundless danger outside.
Su Mo gritted his teeth. Steeling his hear, he said, “I want to become a master of the guild, I hope you will help to recommend me.”
Since he could not become a disciple, then he could only become a master. Although to be a master at the guild needed a craftsmanship at the Imperial level which Su Mo could not reach, he could do nothing but try.
The lanky craftsman was startled, and then his face darkened, saying coldly, “Did I not tell you already? Only the craftsman above the Imperial level can become masters of this guild, did you not hear me?”
The lanky craftsman did not believe that Su Mo was an Imperial Craftsman because Su Mo’s age was close to his. He was a very talented craftsman and at the moment, he was only a Lower Royal Craftsman.
To be able to reach the Royal level at their age was already a great achievement but to become an Imperial Craftsman? Impossible!
Furthermore, Su Mo had wanted to be a disciple at first and after learning they were not accepting students did he want to become a master. This meant that Su Mo was not an Imperial Craftsman.
Thus, the lanky craftsman’s face immediately became cold. He thought Su Mo was tricking him.
“Master, how can you be so sure that I am not at the Imperial level?” Su Mo asked lightly.
“You?” The lanky craftsman spluttered with laughter then burst into actual laughter. “Hahaha! You are an Imperial Craftsman? You’re joking, right?”
Of the entire Craftsmen’s Guild, there has never been such a young Imperial Craftsman. The lanky craftsman did not believe him at all.Read more chapter on vipnovel
The lanky craftsman’s laughter immediately drew everyone’s attention in the all. The crowd all glanced at them.
Many people sized up Su Mo with a shocked expression. This young man was an Imperial Craftsman? He wanted to join the Craftsmen’s Guild? This was impossible, right?
“How do you know without trying?”
Su Mo’s expression was calm, not giving a care to the lanky craftsman’s mockery. In a solemn voice, he said, “You accepted my gift, you should at least recommend me! If I fail, it has nothing to do with you!”
“Is that so?” The lanky craftsman shrugged. He looked at Su Mo’s solemn expression and was speechless.
With a huff, the lanky craftsman nodded and said, “Alright, since I took your gift, naturally, I will help you. Follow me!”
Having said that, the lanky craftsman turned toward a set of stairs not far away. Su Mo immediately followed behind.
“Kid, I’ll say the unpleasant stuff first. If you’re chased out by Steward Chai, don’t hold it against me!” The lanky craftsman warned Su Mo as they went up the stairs.
He had already guessed the ending. He was just waiting to see how Su Mo would make a fool of himself!
“I won’t!” Su Mo shook his head but he was frantically wondering how he could become a master at the Craftsmen’s Guild.
Since the guild only took craftsmen above the Imperial level, there would certainly be a test but the best he had made was a King level weapon, not even a Royal level weapon, much less an Imperial level weapon.
Even if he had Ou Lianzi’s craftmanship legacy and was well-versed in the theory of Imperial craftsmanship, he had never practiced it.
“Su Mo, you’re…?” Qin Busi followed at Su Mo’s side and there was also a worried expression on his face. He also did not really believe that Su Mo was an Imperial Craftsman.
Because for Su Mo to have reached such a cultivation at his age, he must have used all his time in cultivation. How could he have time to learn craftsmanship?
Even if he did have time to learn craftsmanship, he could not have reached an Imperial level.
“There is no need for extra words, senior!”
Qin Busi had just spoken when he was interrupted by Su Mo’s waving hand. His arrow was drawn, he had no choice but to release.
In any case, he had to stay in the Craftsmen’s Guild, no matter what.
