Cannon Fodder Is King [Quick Transmigration] - 2
Translated by summer melodies
Seeing this, Meng Zezhi frowned slightly.
For his predecessor’s miserable experience and the terrible situation, he is in right now.
Just then, a cold mechanical voice rang in his mind.
”Hello, host, Agent Revenge Subsystem number 0715, wholeheartedly at your service.”
After that, a transparent display screen appeared out of thin air in front of Meng Zezhi, with a shining bright red font.
Name: Meng Zezhi.
Charm value: 82
Soul Strength: 95
IQ: 290 -80 (poisoned state)
Skills: Physics (high level),
Mathematics (beginner), Chemistry (beginner)
Achievements: Top 10 Outstanding Physicists of the Small World 6323
”En.” Meng Zezhi was calm. When he opened his eyes again, he had already made enough psychological preparation.
His gaze fell on the words ‘-80’ in the IQ column; judging from the achievements of his predecessor in his past life, his IQ would not exceed 170 at most (Leonardo da Vinci’s IQ was 230, Einstein’s was 200 and Stephen Hawking’s was 170). After being poisoned, the quotient of 80 was subtracted at once, and his intelligence level dropped directly to the level of ordinary people. No wonder no more creative scientific research could be done.
”Please allow me to introduce myself first,” The cold mechanical voice of the system rang out again, “This system number 0715 is a sub-system under the management of the main system of vengeance as an agent, which works under the name of the Department of Nether World Merit Examination.”
”Agent Revenge System, as the name suggests, is entrusted by the Department of Nether World Merit Examination to take revenge on behalf of the tragically dead at the cost of their own merits. After the main system has screened them, it will then distribute the relevant tasks to the sub-system hosts.”
”In the three thousand worlds, the energy of the Nether World government is limited and there are always places that cannot be supervised. These places often tend to breed some demons and monsters that disturb the world order, such as transmigrators, reborn, wild systems, etc.”
”Take Meng Zezhi as an example.”
Here it is talking about the predecessor.
Meng Zezhi was originally a good person. He was destined to live a miserable life for the first twenty years to offset the bad karma of his previous life and be rich and prosperous for the next seventy years to consume all his merits. However, because of Jiang Qiyang, he lost his reputation, his wife left him, and he died young.”
”This matter is due to the negligence of the Nether World government. I will not mention how to compensate Meng Zezhi for the time being. When something like this happens, the Nether World government has the responsibility to set things right. The Department of Punishing Evil could have directly arrested Jiang Qiyang and the others for their crimes, but Meng Zezhi felt that this was not enough to relieve his anger, so he entrusted the Department of Examining Merit to take revenge on his behalf at the cost of some of his own merits. In this way, the torture that Jiang Qiyang and the others suffered in the human world could not be used to offset the bad karma that had accumulated on him.”
In short, Meng Zezhi offered his merits, and the host of the Agent Revenge System was responsible for taking revenge on Jiang Qiyang. When Jiang Qiyang died, he would be treated as if he had never suffered those crimes and would be sentenced as he should be.
It’s the equivalent of beating up a condemned prisoner before he dies so that the victim can relieve his anger.
Meng Zezhi found it quite interesting.
He looked at the transparent display in front of him and asked, “May I ask what the soul strength is?”
”In the ordinary world, the stronger the soul strength, the higher the IQ. In the Supernatural World or Cultivation World, the stronger the soul strength, the better the aptitude. After the host enters the body of the entrusted person, the overall quality of the body will be adjusted according to the host’s soul strength.”
Without Meng Zezhi needing to ask a question, the system continued, “The host’s soul strength exceeds that of the vast majority of ordinary people, but is far lower than the average level of the cultivation world.”
Meng Zezhi was not disappointed. He asked again, “And how is merit calculated?”
”It is too troublesome to explain in detail, so I will give the host a simple example, saving a human life is five points of merit value.”
In that case, his 3360 points of merit were not bad.
Only to hear the system continue, “The host’s current status can only be considered as a non-staff member in the Nether World, but as long as the host works hard, his merit and virtue value exceeds 100,000 and his soul strength reaches 1,000, he can be transferred to a regular position after passing the assessment.”
”A regular position in the Nether World, doesn’t that mean becoming a god?”
Meng Zezhi’s eyes darkened as he was inevitably tempted by the big pie drawn by the system.
After all, when one lives, one cannot escape the word merit.
But he quickly regained his composure and asked, “And what if the mission fails?”
”The host can rest assured that we are a proper, identified system and will not let the host take too much risk.” The system said, “So if you fail once, only half of the host’s merit and ten points of soul strength will be deducted. However, if you fail three times in a row, the system will be unbound and send the host to reincarnate.”
”Understood.” Meng Zezhi was mentally prepared.
Talking to smart people just saves trouble.
”In order to improve the quality of the host’s task completion, the main system has opened a system store function specifically for the host.”
After saying that, the display screen interface in front of Meng Zezhi turned and a nine-square grid appeared, with each grid holding an item, with its purpose and price marked below.
There were many things in the mall. Most of the names were simple and crude. The first item that caught his eye was the Soul Strength Increasing Liquid, a bottle of which could increase soul strength by ten points and was priced at one thousand merit points.
Meng Zezhi was silent, determined to retract his earlier thought that 3360 merit points were not bad.
Further down, there were not many things. All were some basic pills, skills, talismans, and so on. There was nothing with a little scientific or technological level. Hanging in the back were several pages of wild systems, such as the divine beast cultivation system, super repair system, a hundred abilities system, top student halo system……
Of these items, the lowest priced was the Primary Antidote Pill, which costs two hundred merit points, and the highest priced was a one hundred cubic storage ring, which costs twenty thousand merit points.
The last page was a code of conduct for the use of the store, with only a few lines of text.
”The goods purchased from the system store can only be used for the host’s own use.”
Seeing this, Meng Zezhi made a rough estimate. With his current state, he would need at least 200,000 merit points to meet the requirements for the position of the regular staff.
Meng Zezhi was very angry. Now, he only wanted to know how many merit points he could get after completing a task.
As if guessing what Meng Zezhi was thinking, the display screen in front of him changed.
Main Quest: Retaliate against Jiang Qiyang and Chen Yinglong (Merit reward of 1000 points, completion of the quest depends on Meng Zezhi’s satisfaction level.)
Side Quest: Restore Meng Zezhi’s reputation (Merit reward of 500 points, completion level depends on Meng Zezhi’s satisfaction level.)
System Task: Recycle the Celebrity Raising System (Merit reward of 500 points.)
The system explained, “The amount of merit reward is determined by the difficulty level of the task. This world’s task is relatively easy. It is equivalent to a novice mission, so the merit reward is relatively small.
”Understood.” Meng Zezhi thought about it and asked, “Can the Primary Detoxification Pill cure the neurotoxin and AIDS in my body?”
”Neurotoxin is ok, but AIDS is not.” The system replied truthfully, “It is not recommended for the host to use the Marrow Cleansing Pill, because the original host is only an ordinary person, not a cultivator. He will not be able to withstand the medicinal power of the Marrow Cleansing Pill.”
Without the system’s reminder, Meng Zezhi also doesn’t want to put his mind on the Marrow Cleansing Pill. After all, a Marrow Cleansing Pill in the store cost 800 merit points. Meng Zezhi didn’t want to waste too much before he had a thorough understanding of the situation.
He was not disappointed and simply said, “Please help me purchase a Primary Detoxification Pill.”
The lethality of the neurotoxin was too great. Meng Zezhi had never been a good-tempered person. He was worried that he might not be able to control his emotions during the mission.
As for his AIDS ……
He believes he knew what to do with Jiang Qiyang and Chen Yinglong.
Meng Zezhi’s eyes slightly darkened.
”Okay host.” The system responded.
The next moment, the value of the Merit column on Meng Zezhi’s profile page changed from 3360 to 3160, followed by a small white porcelain bottle appearing in his hand.
Without hesitation, Meng Zezhi pulled the cork off the bottle and poured out a dark brown pill. Then he raised his head, stuffed the pill into his mouth and swallowed it.
After a while, a warm current ran up from his abdomen to his cerebral cortex. There was a sweetness in Meng Zezhi’s throat. He clenched his teeth, got up from the sofa, rushed into the bathroom, opened the toilet lid, and then vomited out the blood mixed with toxins into his mouth.
After taking a shower and refreshing himself, he pulled open the bathroom door and was confronted with a room full of mess, a small mountain of takeaway boxes, dirty clothes and a foul smell in the air.
Before that, Meng Zezhi was too preoccupied with sorting out the plot to care about this. Now that he saw it, his stomach churned reflexively.
It had been a month since Xu Jiaqing’s miscarriage. The predecessor had locked himself up for a full month, sleeping when he was tired of crying, eating when he woke up and continuing to cry when he was full.
He should thank Chen Yinglong. In order to completely push his predecessor into the abyss, he especially arranged for someone to give his predecessor a month’s takeaway food. Otherwise, how could the predecessor have survived until today?
Meng Zezhi took a deep breath, resigned to his fate, rolled up his sleeves and started tidying up the house.
