R.P Chapter 34: The Beginning
At this time, the information about the derivative world finally appeared in front of Su Xiao.
[Entered the world: Tokyo Ghoul]
World difficulty: LV.3. Difficult (difficulty is evaluated as lower due to the strength of the contractors.)
The source of the world: 0% (this will grow when hunters explore or communicate with current world characters. When calculating the total world source, it will be offset with the world’s difficulty level to form the final score)
World introduction: In a chaotic modern society, Tokyo is infested with cannibal monsters, which are called ghouls. The appearance of ghouls is usually no different from ordinary people, but after they activate the Rc cells (Red children cells) in their bodies, they will have red eyes. Ghouls maintain the activity of Rc cells in their bodies by eating humans, granting them physical power which is far superior to ordinary people.
Main mission: Joining CCG (Commission of Counter Ghoul, ghoul investigators) or one party of ghoul (Aogiri tree, Clowns). Subsequent missions will be activated after the hunter joins a faction.
Hunting mission: Cleaning up the offender: Contractor no.12470. When the hunter enters within one kilometer of the N.12470 contractor, the ‘hunting function’ will be automatically turned on.
Warning: Do not mention anything about the “Reincarnation Paradise” to the natives of this world. If the warning is ignored, the hunters will be forcibly executed!
Hint: The main task of this world is a chain task. After completing three main tasks, you can choose to return to the Reincarnation Paradise (hunters need to complete their hunting task). The more main line tasks are completed, the higher the final evaluation.
Hint: Since the hunter does not know the world’s language, 100 paradise coins are consumed to automatically learn it.
The world starts!
Seeing as the difficulty of the world was Lv.3, Su Xiao breathed a sigh of relief, he could not help but smile.
Happy that it wasn’t a terrible difficulty level such as a nightmare, he was not as nervous as in the world of One Piece. Now he only needed to judge the strength of the CCG and ghouls.
Su Xiao received a main chain task for the first time. As for which faction to choose, he would without hesitation join the CCG.
It was a terrible choice to join the ghouls. Without even taking into consideration his human identity, ghouls were not trustworthy in the first place.
As for the hunting mission, Su Xiao was completely confused. This unlucky guy no. 12470, he did not even know who that person was.
There were no further clues right now, just the hint given by the Reincarnation Paradise that the person could be tracked within one kilometer.
Fortunately, the city of Tokyo was not big, and a range of perception of one kilometer was sufficient.
For now, he only needed to complete the main line tasks. The first main task time was 48 hours. The failure penalty was losing 13,000 paradise coins. If the paradise coins one had were not enough, equipment would be confiscated. If that was still not enough to cover the penalty, one would die.
As for the hunting mission, Su Xiao did not see any punishment or time limit.
Su Xiao thought that there probably were other hidden parameters to the hunting missions, just not time.
The contractor on the hunting list would not be a nice guy, it might not take long for the person to show himself. Anyways, he was not in a hurry.
The sounds of chewing bloody flesh were loud in the room, and before long the ghoul had fully eaten two people.
Su Xiao looked surprised at the bloody beauty, sighing about how she was really enjoying her food. No wonder she was called the Binge eater, she completely consumed the flesh and blood of two people and her flat belly was only slightly uplifted.
The sound of someone vomiting came from behind him, and Xi Lo Lo, as was natural for a little girl, tearfully looked at the horror scene in front of her.
Some new contractors were also scared, after all, Kamishiro Rize was eating people right in front of their eyes.
Su Xiao shook his head at their antics, their mentality was just too weak.
Two whole minutes later, Kamishiro Rize was still eating wildly.
“Tap, tap, tap.”
Footsteps echoed from a distant corridor and a man with a strong build and a mask walked out of the darkness.
“It seems that ‘Binge eater’ is a fitting nickname.”
The man was wearing a white suit and a white mask. The mask had holes for the mouth and nose. After approaching Rize, he pressed his index finger against his thumb and snapped.
Rize paused eating, her face showed her annoyance.
“I hate being interrupted while eating…”
The two began to talk, their strong killing intent was spread. It seemed they were about to fight.
“Not good, Mr. Cold Fish, what can we do, it’s two S-class ghouls, Kamishiro Rize is even between S-class and SS-class.”
Many contractors were desperate. This kind of start wasn’t good, not for only for them, even someone as experienced as Cold Fish had never seen such. The Reincarnation Paradise surprisingly sent them right in front of two S-class ghouls.
“After the protective cover disappears, we should immediately escape. Whether you live or not depends on your luck.”
Cold Fish wasn’t as relaxed as he was before.
The cover only had less than a minute left, once the protective cover disappeared, it may be their time to die.
Su Xiao knew about the two people in front of him. The purple-haired beauty is Kamishiro Rize, and the mask and suit wearing male name is Ōmori Yakumo. No, calling him Ōmori Yakumo may be strange, the CCG called him Jason. Ghouls called him “Gecko”, he was the one who tortured Kaneki Ken in the original story.
“My superior sent me to fetch you, alive.”
Gecko held a long-handled bolt cutter in his hand, which was actually a surgical tool for ghouls.
They were different from ordinary humans. Because their bodies contained a lot of Rc cells, they were very sturdy, regular knifes or medical equipment could not hurt them.
In the world of Tokyo ghoul, ordinary humans also had Rc cells, but only a small amount. The reason why ghouls swallow humans was both to sate their appetite and to consume the Rc cells in the human’s body.
It could be said that the Rc cells were very strange form of energy, which could strengthen the human body and form powerful weapons such as Kagune. If it were not for the desire to eat people, Rc cells would be an excellent way to strengthen oneself, better than becoming a vampire or werewolf. These bloodlines both had obvious weaknesses.
Su Xiao guessed that there should be contractors in the Reincarnation Paradise that used this method to strengthen themselves, although he would not choose to do so, some contractors hungry for power would not hesitate to choose this path.
The battle between Rize and Gecko was about to begin, Gecko was excited.
“How about I take a finger, an arm and one or both feet off before I catch you?”
Gecko laughed loudly. This guy was a complete sadist. Gecko preferred to abuse his opponents compared to killing them.
“Despite that huge body of yours you like small toys. Do you want to play so much? You’re so cute.”
The ridicule of Rize made Gecko so angry he directly rushed toward her. The long-handled bolt cutter in his hand were aimed at the back Rize’s head.
Rize did not look back, from her slender waist, four Kagune suddenly burst out from of end of her spine.
The Kagune were dark red, like four long tails, with a slight red glow. This was the appearance of highly active Rc cells.
Gecko stepped back to dodge the Kagune, the wall-mounted fish tank near the two was pierced, causing a large amount of clear water to pour out.
Rize did not plan to fight with Gecko, her body leaped high as she prepared to leave.
Just after Rize jumped up, the protective circle around Su Xiao disappeared as its time was up.
Just as the circle disappeared, Su Xiao’s legs tightened, and he jumped fiercely.
When he reappeared, he was already in the air, just in front of Rize.
Su Xiao kicked his foot on the soft belly of Rize.
Rize, up in the air, was a bit stunned. She could not escape Su Xiao’s attack, then her beautiful face revealed pain.
After being kicked, Rize hit the ground with high-speed and rolled several times.
Su Xiao landed, his leg feeling sore, the skin of a ghoul was harder than he thought.
[Dragon flash] appeared in his hand, Su Xiao smiled and looked at Rize and Gecko.
“So, this is a S-class ghoul? Oho~, you’re unexpectedly weak, I was worried about how to join the CCG. Maybe I should kill both of you, it should be no problem then.”
Rize found it hard to stand up, her mouth overflowed with blood and she looked at Su Xiao with fear visible on her face. Her eyes darted around and she began to think about possible ways to escape.
In the distance, those contractors looked on shocked, even Cold Fish was full of cold sweat. Now he knew why they met two S-class ghouls right from the beginning.
That was because there was a monster stronger than them within the contractors and the Reincarnation Paradise made this decision to balance the plot.
