After agreeing to open the chest, a few items appeared in front of Su Xiao.
[You opened the treasure chest (green) and got the following items.]

Introduction: Lets go all out.
Price: 2,700 paradise coins.
Looking at the ring in his hand, Su Xiao was silent for a while.
Although the ring didn’t add any attributes, it had a superb ability, ignoring the pain for 20 seconds.
It might not sound like much, but tolerance of pain was not to be underestimated during battle. Strong pain would lead to slow response times which would lead to defeat.
But losing the feeling of pain for a long time was not a good thing. This ability to ignore pain for a short time was similar to a stimulant.
The ring would enable him to use his full strength when he was almost dead, although it was only a short 20 seconds, it was still precious.
When life value was to fall below 10%, creatures would enter a weak state. At less than 5%, most creatures are unable to resist.
If Su Xiao’s life value ever was to reach less than 5% during a fight, he could then use the ring to temporarily ignore his body’s pain to continue fighting.
Wearing the ring on his finger, Su Xiao felt the strange energy coursing around the ring and knew he could activate this strange energy at any time.
Activating the hiding function of the RP, the ring disappeared. Su Xiao was satisfied and nodded. He then looked at the Kakuhou in his hand, which belonged to Gecko’s.
The Kakuhou was round and had the size of an egg. Its surface was dark red riddled with bright red lines.
It had a hard texture and was heavy, it didn’t appear like an organ. It was more like a hard object.
Su Xiao would not transplant Gecko’s Kakuhou into his body, not only due to the extremely high lethality, but because a ghoul was not a highest-level creature, so it was not worth the risk.
Su Xiao already had an occupation, so he would not choose other bloodlines. If there was a conflict between the two, the possibility of death was extremely high.
As for the chance that a fusion of the two became would form a more advanced lineage? That was just wishful thinking.
It was good to be alive. Even if he were lucky enough to get a fusion of the two, since the abilities were unrelated, they would most likely only form a useless ability.
Just like the combination of tiger and dog would never produce an elephant.
So, Su Xiao put the Kakuhou into the storage space. Even if it had no use later on in this world, he could still sell it. A white material with a rating of 9 was very valuable, in particular, since it was a material which could be used to create a weapon, many people in the trading market would be willing to buy it.
All in all, the items obtained from this treasure chest were satisfactory, and overall, it seemed his luck was good.
Having opened a few treasure chests, Su Xiao summed up a few things, those being, only the stronger creatures could drop a treasure chest, but even if one dropped, there was no guarantee to get the good stuff.
After opening the treasure Chest, Su Xiao finally went to sleep.
CCG would give him their response tomorrow morning. If there were any accidents, Su Xiao would quickly need to join the ghouls. The cost of failing the mission was not one he was willing or able to pay.
At about 7 A.M. the next morning, someone knocked on Su Xiao’s door.
“Byakuya, the news of the headquarters has arrived.” It was the voice of Mado Kureo.
Su Xiao had already finished washing up, he opened the door and greeted Mado Kureo, who was wearing a white coat.
“The CCG General Administration agreed to let me join you?”
Getting a clear answer, Su Xiao became confident.
“This is your entry document and certificate. I didn’t expect your father to be an investigator, this greatly helped your application to join CCG.”
Su Xiao took the documents and the RP immediately gave a notification.
[Hunter, you have completed the main mission (1): The camp selection. There is no reward for this mission. Follow-up mission is started.]
[Main task (2): superior investigator.]
[E/N: completely unknown what rank the author actually means. I think he’s talking about First Class investigator, but as the TL always uses “superior investigator” even for other characters like Mado Kureo and Amon Koutarou, who have different classes…]
Difficulty level: LV.3.
Mission introduction: Improve your position in the CCG and prepare for follow-up tasks.
Mission information: Use any method to get promoted, i.e., eliminating ghouls, bribery and so on.
Mission period: 20 days.
Mission reward: 1 attribute point, 1500 paradise coins.
[Hunter, you have successfully joined the CCG. The camp contribution value is now turned on.]
[Current position: Rank 3 investigator. CCG contribution points: 0/50. Expulsing ghouls can help you obtain contribution points. After you get the necessary points, your rank can be increased.]
[Contribution points can also be used to purchase items from the CCG or to make Quinque.]
The follow-up mission finally appeared. According to the notifications the Reincarnation Paradise gave before, he had to complete three main tasks in total, before he could return to the Reincarnation Paradise.
But just after he successfully joined CCG, he received some ‘bad news’ from the Reincarnation Paradise.
[Announcement: A contractor has joined a camp. The contractor’s ability is sufficient to interfere with the balance of the camps. Balancing activated.]
This was an announcement, not just a notification to Su Xiao, but to all the contractors in the world.
Except for Su Xiao, the main task (1) of all contractors had changed, from the original choice to join a camp, into joining a ghoul camp.
This was a balancing mechanism for the Reincarnation Paradise, so the other camps won’t be too weak.
Su Xiao had an ugly expression on his face, as he had also received a notification. Apparently, he was the only person in CCG, the other contractors would join one of the groups of the ghouls.
This cleared one of the doubts he had concerning the position as a hunter. It seemed like he would only receive preferential treatment within the Reincarnation Paradise. In the derivative worlds, the Reincarnation Paradise would treat all contractors the same.
Su Xiao did not complain about anything. This actually made sense. The Reincarnation Paradise always gave him the feeling that it was equally cold to all.
However, after he thought it through, it was actually somewhat good that he was alone in the CCG camp. At least there won’t be any other contractors interfering.
“Byakuya, you are assigned to the 14th district. The situation there is a bit complicated, they need the help.”
Mado Kureo thought it a pity Su Xiao was not assigned to the 20th district.
“Understood. I have a feeling that I will return to the 20th district soon enough.”
Mado Kureo watched confused as Su Xiao left the 20th district branch of CCG.
The 14th district was located next to the 20th district. Sometimes, if the pressure in the 14th district was too high, the 20th needed to support them, the 14th district was that dangerous.
Before leaving the 20th district, Su Xiao suddenly remembered something. He hesitated, thinking about whether or not to go to to Anteiku. [E/N: I think. There’s nothing else in TG called anything remotely close to “Antique”, as far as I remember.]
After all, there were a lot of ghouls gathered there.
