The map wasn't too big. It only encompa.s.sed an area of 500 kilometers.
Coincidentally, the starting point of the map was the region Luo Yunyang and the other new students had gone to hunt.
This meant that the region shown on the map was suitable for martial masters or higher-rank martialists.
Was Luo Yunyang a martial master? His strength had already reached the standards of a martial master, and his methods weren't lacking either, so by the time he had skimmed through the map quickly, he had already set his mind on this idea.
After paying a visit to Yang Yirui, who was recuperating at his own residence, and informing Chen Yong and the others, Luo Yunyang packed up the equipment he had purchased and headed out of the base gates.
He had a knife, a foldable bow, 36 arrows, a few energy bars and some medicine.
"You must be heading out to hunt, kid!" Luo Yunyang had barely stepped out of the gates when he saw Xu Zhong walk over.
"You must be really great if you were able to defeat Bai Yushui!" As he spoke, Xu Zhong handed Luo Yunyang a chest badge. "Take a look at this. It's a martial master medal!"
"This medal, in combination with your strength, will make ladies stop you when you walk down the main streets of Chang'an City!" Xu Zhong rubbed his bald head and proclaimed loudly, "To think that, all those years back, I was just as handsome and talented! Ha ha! Everyone had been besotted with me!"
Besotted? Sure they were!
Luo Yunyang rather liked Xu Zhong, but he found his narcissism funny.
He accepted the chest badge. "I thought that one needed an awakened source core to be able to become a martial master."
"Why are you kids so inflexible? Sure, that's the most ordinary method, but the Rising Dragon Army pays more attention to performance."
Xu Zhong patted his head. "If you are able to beat a martial master, then you can become one as well. It's as simple as that."
"Keep this safe. You have to treat me to a drink later. Oh, I forgot! Stay away from that Lin Changjian kid in the future. He's a total lunatic!" Xu Zhong laughed heartily. "You know what, kid? You might just be the youngest martial master to ever exist at Base 7!"
"Do you even know how many young martialists there are here? Ha ha ha!"
Xu Zhong laughed as he left. When Luo Yunyang placed the badge on his chest, almost all the soldiers guarding the place looked over at him in admiration.
A martial master... Everyone was very clear on what those two words represented!
Luo Yunyang had just stepped out of the city, when a series of beeps were heard from his communication device. When he opened it, he heard a sweet voice. "Respected Martial Master Luo Yunyang, the Flag Bank of the Da Alliance is at your service. We wish you all the best."
"We have already issued a platinum card for you. Please come and collect it when you have time. Your credit limit is 10 million dayuan!"
The Flag Bank was possibly the largest bank in the Da Alliance. In comparison to it, the bank that his mother worked at was a sorry excuse of a bank.
Luo Yunyang had never applied for an account there. How had he become a VIP member of the bank just like that? Plus, they had readily provided him with a 10 million credit limit!
How had all this happened?
As Luo Yunyang pondered over it, another message was sent. "Respected Martial Master Luo Yunyang, Da Alliance Rapid Gem Automobiles is at your service. We wish you all the best!"
"In view of your contribution to the Da Alliance, our company will provide you with a Rapid Gem Q9 transportation vehicle. You are welcome to collect it anytime you wish!"
A Rapid Gem Automobile? He got a free ride? This was great!
The Da Alliance had certain restrictions concerning vehicles in its main cities. One had to spend a huge amount of money to purchase an automobile, yet Rapid Gem Automobiles had actually given him one for free. He he, this treatment isn't bad...
"Respected Martial Master Luo Yunyang, this is the Da Alliance Striking Glow Hotel Chain. You have become a platinum member of our establishment. We wish you all the best."
"Respected Martial Master Luo Yunyang, this is the Da Entertainment Era Company. The celebrities under our banner wish you all the best..."
At first, Luo Yunyang was elated. All these large companies seemed to be in a rush to come up with all sorts of fancy ways to win him over. However, soon, Luo Yunyang got fed up. He was sick and tired of listening to all those advertis.e.m.e.nts.
Why did his communication device still have this sort of function?
"He he… Congratulations on becoming a martial master, Little Brother Yunyang. If you are free, come visit your big sis at the Royal Forest Military. I'd love to chat! Ji Tian."
At least this message was from someone he knew. The communication device in his hands had actually been a gift from her.
After 15 minutes, Luo Yunyang finally heard something that he was interested in. It was a message from Zhu Yan.
"Good job, kid! I knew all along that you were no ordinary person. d.a.m.n it, you became a martial master a little too fast. Sister Qianqian told me to pa.s.s on the message that she has found a few potential partners for you. Don't forget to visit when you return to Chang'an!"
Although Zhu Yan's message was a little long, it made Luo Yunyang smile. This fella's message was actually heartfelt.
When he entered the forest, Luo Yunyang turned off the communication device's message function. He usually did not even receive one message in two weeks, yet now he had received countless messages in a short period of time.
As he thought about the people he knew, Luo Yunyang couldn't help but think about his mother and little sister. He hadn't heard their familiar voices through the device, so he was wondering how they were doing.
Considering their social status, they couldn't own a communication device. Now that he had become a martial master though, he wondered whether he would be able to solve this problem.
Luo Yunyang suddenly felt a little homesick. He had only left home a few days ago, yet he felt like he had been away for a long time. I hope everything is okay back home!
While Luo Yunyang was distracted, a jet-black silhouette dashed towards him like lightning. By the time Luo Yunyang sensed it, it had already bit into his arm.
When it heard this sound, the jet-black silhouette retreated. The moment it did, Luo Yunyang's fists smashed hard into it.
It was a Black Ring Snake, or rather a Black Ring Snake that had been mashed into a pulp! Luo Yunyang knew all about Black Ring Snakes, so he instinctively looked down at his arm.
If he got hurt now, then he would suffer a loss before he had even headed into battle.
His arm was smooth, but the area where he had been bitten by the Black Ring Snake felt a little sore. Although it felt as if something had knocked into it, his skin was intact.
Black Ring Snakes had very sharp teeth. Although the Black Ring Snake that had just bitten Luo Yunyang was a small one, he still couldn't underestimate its power.
Fortunately, it had not been able to leave a mark.
Had Luo Yunyang's body become that tough? As Luo Yunyang stared at his glossy arm, he thought about the Ape-Dragon Blueprint's seventh diagram.
Could the cultivation of the Ape-Dragon Blueprint have made his body stronger?
