Chapter 21: New Properties

[Ding, Zero – Puppet Card R (Level 1) has been activated]

The system’s voice was still cold, but at this moment, it moved Qiao Xingnan a million times.

It was too hard.
20,000 gold coins were spent to finally get Zero to R grade.
Qiao Xingnan looked at the system interface with heartache and excitement.

[Card: Zero – Puppet

Race: Wood

Grade: R (Level 1)

Equipment: None

Talent: None

Equipped Skill: Marionette – Active (Speed*150 [Peak])

Additional Skills: ???? (Unknown, please explore by yourself)

Skin: Ancient Tomb Inscription (New/Replaceable)]

Qiao Xingnan roughly swept a glance.
His eyes paused on the word skin for a few seconds, and he was somewhat surprised that ascending to the R-grade card came with a skin.

But the skin was not the main focus.
Qiao Xingnan was more concerned about Zero’s skill enhancement.

In Zero’s card attributes, the original speed of the equipped skill rose from the original 100 to 150.

The new unknown additional skill and replaceable skin were put aside for now, and Qiao Xingnan’s eyes fell on the ‘Marionette – Active’.

[Marionette – Active – You can select anything within thirty meters of the body at will, including living and nonliving things, as puppets.
Zero – Puppet will be able to control them to do some simple things ~

Note: The control time is one minute, the cooling period is forty-eight hours]

With the N grade card, Qiao Xingnan can control all actions of Zero.

After the upgrade, the Marionette skill changed from the original to Zero being able to actively control something.

After a general understanding, Qiao Xingnan’s eyes lit up.

Although it can only do some simple things, it has to be said that this skill is really practical.

To put it closer, if the tyrant came to invite himself to ride tomorrow, and he let Zero control the movements of the horned horse, he would not have to worry about being thrown to death at all.
The only drawback is that it is only for one minute, and the cooldown time is long.

When using it, it still needs to be carefully considered.


“Zero, how do you feel now? Do you feel stronger?” Qiao Xingnan happily looked at Zero and patted his shoulder, “Now I’m relying on you to cover Uncle Ster and Brother!”

He became an R card?

Zero didn’t have the slightest sense of reality.
He looked up at the smiling man in front of him, his eyes blank and helpless.

No one will give a corrupted card an upgrade.

Degeneration would mean that the cards would become extremely difficult to upgrade after resetting their stats, and to any person, such a money-losing deal is simply not worth it.

On the side, Ster also put away his kind smile.
He looked at Qiao Xingnan as if he wanted to see through Qiao Xingnan’s smile to see what he was really thinking inside.

After dropping nearly all of his fortune of 20,000 gold coins to get Zero to R card, shouldn’t this poor master show hysterical ugliness?

With Ster’s second owner, it was because Ster was a corrupted card and had difficulty upgrading that he was thrown back into the card pool to exchange for gold coins.

Money is more important to them than useless cards.

But the new master seems to be different.

But exactly where it is different, Ster couldn’t say for a while.

To be honest, for Qiao Xingnan, 20,000 gold coins were lost, it’s a lie not to be distressed.
He will be a bit upset even if his heart is forgiving.
Counting the previous, Qiao Xingnan’s entire fortune is only 1,104 gold coins plus three silver coins.

In less than two hours, he experienced the feeling of being rich and broke at the same time.
This feeling was really not an ordinary experience.

But there is no way, Howard has set eyes on Zero.
They can hide for a while, but not for a lifetime.
In order to survive, he must first upgrade Zero to cope with the Howard crisis.

Of course, Zero’s character is pure and loyal.
After getting along for so many days, Qiao Xingnan was not a hard-hearted person, so he could naturally bite the bullet and give him an upgrade.
Anyway, you can still earn again if the money is gone.

“Master.” Zero mumbled, his black eyes filled with bewilderment, “Zero, really, upgraded?”

Qiao Xingnan looked at Zero, who looked like he was overjoyed and silly.
The little bit of discomfort in his heart also disappeared instantly, and he let out a laugh, “Yes, you have been upgraded to R grade.
Don’t worry.
As long as we can survive from under the tyrant, one day I can raise you to the highest grade!”

Of course, when saying this, Qiao Xingnan did not forget his Uncle Ster: “And Uncle Ster, I will still upgrade you!”

Ster couldn’t say what was on his mind right now.
He just subconsciously put on a gentle smile again and said, “Thank you, my kind master.”

Qiao Xingnan chuckled a little and did not continue talking big but looked at the other data of Zero on the panel.
Although the beneficiary of the upgrade was Zero, when he asked Zero about the additional skill on his screen, Zero did not know what his additional skill was.

Qiao Xingnan had to ignore Zero’s additional skill for now and turned to the [Skin] property at the very end.

The [Skin] was the same as the unknown [Additional Skill], both of which were new properties that came out after the upgrade.

He thought about it and tapped the ‘Skin (Replaceable)’ button on the card interface, and the next second he saw two pictures appear on the screen.

The first was an original 3D picture of Zero’s appearance, black eyes, black hair, and black robes.
Apart from his firm, handsome face and good figure, there was nothing remarkable about his appearance.


When he saw the second picture, Qiao Xingnan’s eyes lit up, and he immediately raised his hand and clicked on this picture, followed by a new change in Zero beside him.

The clothing on Zero’s body was still the white robe with a hood given to him by Qiao Xingnan.
But after removing the hood, you will see that his handsome face has an additional pattern, a mysterious red pattern extending from the end of his eyes to his temples and then intersecting in his forehead, shaped like some kind of ancient writing.
When staring for a long time, you will be dazzled, and your head will tingle.


Almost at the same time, Qiao Xingnan realized how powerful it would be to act with this skin.
He smiled and immediately decided, “Zero, let’s use this skin.”

The upgraded appearance was a gift from the system.

This was the first time Zero had received an upgraded skin, and his angular face was a little stiff.
Hearing his master’s words, he nodded nervously, seemingly liking his new skin.

Seeing this scene, not to mention Qiao Xingnan, even a hint of laughter emerged in Ster’s eyes.

As night fell, on the other side of the manor, the sound of a hissing snake circled the feet of the blond man sitting on a chair.

“Have all been taken care of?”

Asrit reached out and let the golden python climb up.
His eyelashes drooped slightly as he casually spoke.

Half kneeling on the ground, Howard did not look up: “Yes, the people have confessed.
It’s the remnants of the former Pope’s forces.”

When the words fell, the atmosphere was a little odd for a moment.
The person sitting softly hmmed, with a hint of coolness in his voice: “What about that group of fools there?”

Howard knew that the fools referred to the group of people involved with the royal family and the successor.
That group of fools was always thinking of pulling the emperor out of power so that the prince could succeed to the throne.

Howard reported calmly: “For the time being, they are not involved with the previous ambush on the manor road.”

That said, it’s just not involved for the time being, and everything is still inconclusive.

Just then, the steward knocked gently on the door and came in.
He approached Asrit and said something quietly and then retreated again.

Without looking up, Howard heard the golden python scurrying above, making a rustling sound, and the young emperor laughed softly: “Howard, you go probe the white-robed man tomorrow.”

Howard was stunned but nodded to comply with the order and did not bother to ask why.

When everyone retreated, the blond man’s hand brushed over the snake.
He leaned on his chin, seemingly muttering to himself: “Eighteen boxes are empty ah.”

Was it because it was used to refine magic scrolls, or was it transferred?

Asrit was getting more and more interested.
