R.P Chapter 65: My Unlucky Hand Is Finally Gone? [EDITED]


The bright light forced Su Xiao to close his eyes.

“What the?”

He had already opened several green treasure chests but never had this kind of situation.

The light receded, and a heavy, smooth object appeared in his hand.

A notification of the reincarnation paradise appeared.

[You received ‘The flame of the goddess of fortune’.]

….

After checking this delicate lighter over, Su Xiao was stunned.

He carefully touched the metal shell of the lighter, which was engraved with blue flames.

Su Xiao’s hand was trembling, he finally found a way to increase his luck, his lowest attribute.

Although using this lighter would only add 1 point to his Luck attribute, with his Luck, that already doubled his attribute.

Although he was not sure whether the Luck attribute actually represented his real luck, it was worth a try.

For example, when he opens a treasure chest and uses ‘the flame of the goddess of fortune’ beforehand, there may be unexpected gains.

The evaluation was 30 points, so this piece of equipment should be very valuable.

Su Xiao chuckled, he had survived a dangerous situation and even got such a blessing in the end.

And he also noticed something new about treasure chests: If it contained an ordinary item, the Treasure Chest would just open, but if it contains a high-value item, it would shine gloriously during the opening.

For now, Su Xiao would call this phenomenon ‘flash’. If a treasure chest ‘flashed’, he would get something very good.

And this was still a green treasure chest. If he would get a chance to open a blue treasure chest and it were to flash, he would possibly obtain something worth tens of thousands of paradise coins.

But it was not common to experience the ‘flash’.

Since entering the Reincarnation Paradise, Su Xiao had opened many treasure chests, but only this treasure Chest ‘flashed’. As such, the chance of the ‘flash’ was quite small.

In fact, this ‘flash’ was not just a matter of luck.

Since Su Xiao entered this world, he killed hundreds of ghouls and by himself.

These hundreds of ghouls only dropped a few treasure chests, the contents of which was very ordinary.

Su Xiao not getting many chests or one that flashes would be very embarrassing, so maybe the Reincarnation Paradise accumulation all the kills he did to give him this specific chest.

However, with the ‘the flame of the goddess of fortune’, the chances of obtaining good items from future treasure chests may increase significantly.

And it was not restricted to treasure chests. In some cases where he really needed some luck, he could also use ‘the flame of the goddess of fortune’.

The only downside of ‘the flame of the goddess of fortune’ was that the cooldown time was 10 days.

As for the 500 paradise coins consumed upon each use of ‘the flame of the goddess of fortune’, Su Xiao just ignored it.

The gains would most likely completely outclass the cost, and the 500 paradise coins per use were just a small sum anyways.

Su Xiao carefully put ‘the flame of the goddess of fortune’ into his inventory, this thing would definitely be useful in the future.

Still lying in bed, Su Xiao began to sum up the gains and losses from the fight against the three contractors.

The most obvious gain was the ‘Scarlet Card’ that could randomly give him three items or pieces of equipment from Queen’s belongings.

However, Su Xiao just had a chest that flashed, so his luck probably got used up. As such, he didn’t plan to use it for the time being.

Queen was good at physical attributes, so even if he got her equipment, it might now be useful.

When he had killed the three, he had also noticed that the ‘hunter’ perk did not activate. At that time, he had thought that ‘hunter’ could not obtain Mana from contractors.

Only now that he thought about it, he discovered that the talent had already accumulated 100 points of Mana for him after the slaughter at the auction house, reaching the limit of each derivative world. With that, his maximum Mana capacity was at 253 points.

Additionally, he learned that the Reincarnation Paradise used ‘only’ semi-digitalization.

Each battle here was a gory scene of flesh and blood splashing. The skill he ‘rented’ only assisted in judging his opponent’s combat power, but in the end, unless one side had overwhelmingly higher stats, the outcome depended on each fighter’s experience.

It was like giving a nuclear bomb to a housewife. The most likely outcome was that the nuclear bomb would become decoration.

Even if one side’s skills were surprisingly strong, if the fighter was not experienced enough, he would not use them correctly.

Queen, Black-white, and Leaves all had strong skills. Comparing Su Xiao’s skills with theirs, except for ‘Azure Steel Shadow’ and ‘Sword skills’, none of his abilities could compare.

However, in that battle, except for Queen’s suicidal maneuver of clinging to Su Xiao to force him to take a bullet, Su Xiao dominated Queen during the whole fight.

Queen’s shield skills did not cause much threat to Su Xiao. Instead, Queen was toyed with by Su Xiao until he held her hostage and executed her.

There were no weak skills or occupations. The combat potential always depended on the user.

Su Xiao’s strength did not come from his inheritance, but from his heart. He dared to fight, and he was not afraid of death.

These were simple things, but how many people could be completely fearless during a fierce battle?

However, in the Reincarnation Paradise, there was one thing above equipment and skills, and that was attributes!

After Queen’s vitality attribute had reached 24 points, she could actually resist Su Xiao’s attacks with her body alone.

If Su Xiao’s strength, agility and intelligence reached 20 points or more, what changes would happen?

Undoubtedly, such a number of attributes combined with his sword skills would be a sight to behold.

Su Xiao lit a cigarette and quietly laid back in his bed.

Inadvertently, he thought about one thing.

When Leaves used her execution skill on him, the notification of the reincarnation paradise claimed that he was about to be executed, but that a skill saved his life.

With a thought, Su Xiao opened his status page, chose the skill option, and started to review his skills.

There was no change in ‘Azure Steel Shadow’ and ‘Sword mastery’, but there was a line of text below ‘Devil physique’.

Devil physique: Lv.MAX.

Skill effect: Unable to master or learn any magical skills.

Tip: When the holder of the devil’s physique is attacked by Mana, the passive ability will be activated. Check skill changes: Yes/No.

….

Su Xiao chose to view the changes in the skill.

Devil physique: Lv.MAX.

Skill effect: Unable to master or learn any magical skills.

Passive ability: (Devil), immune to 40% of all magical damage.

Hint: This passive ability has a very high priority. Cannot be overcome by magical true damage, holy magical damage and execution magical damage.

“We, disgusted with the magic that destroys the balance of elements, resist it with our very soul. They shouldn’t try to erode our bodies with magic” – Marvin Waltz.

….

Closing the skill panel, Su Xiao breathed a sigh of relief. He finally understood why his occupation was called the shadow of the law.

[E/N: I pondered over leaving it as immunity to magical damage or changing it to resistance. The difference between immunity and resistance is that resistance may eventually be overcome by say a higher tier of attack or a massively stronger opponent, but immunity should be absolute. I’ll leave it as immunity for now and may or may not change it depending on how the story develops.]
