#33: Mistake and change strategy


The cooperation came to an arrangement smoothly, the Morey facial expression obvious nature, for safety's sake, signing contract was safer. 合作顺利谈妥,莫雷的神情明显自然了很多,为了保险起见,签一份契约更稳妥。 Mentioned signs contract, Morey just had the steady mentality, a little small collapse. 提及签契约,莫雷刚有所平稳的心态,又有点小崩。 Really must sign, verbal contract actually also good, relax, I will not run.” “真的要签吗,口头约定其实也不错,放心吧,我不会跑的。” The Morey tone is very sincere, without a doubt, she has exchanged the contract phobophobia, possibly she has a dream has not thought that from contract of first-order registration seven steps, after Hunter of Reincarnation Paradise side / in Offender hand, was done so many tricks, was fumbled and broken up the show quickly. 莫雷的语气很诚恳,毋庸置疑,她已换上契约恐惧症,可能她做梦都没想到,从一阶签到七阶的契约,到了轮回乐园方的猎杀者/违规者手中后,被搞出那么多花样,都快被玩坏了。 You are anxious, is we signs your contract.” “你紧张个屁,是我们签你的契约。” The Baja opens the mouth, hears this word, in the Morey heart feels surprised, after she makes the ponder slightly, draws up a Revelation Paradise notarization contract. 巴哈开口,听闻此言,莫雷心中倍感惊奇,她稍作沉思后,拟定出一份天启乐园公证的契约 Signs contract that oneself draw up regarding others, Morey is 10,000 felt certainly relieved, what a pity, today, Su Xiao will give on Morey a class. 对于别人签自己拟定的契约,莫雷当然是一万个放心,可惜,在今天,苏晓会给莫雷上一课。 The contract parchment floats before the Su Xiao body, he lifted the hand to press, the hand imprint found, but also is floating pale indistinct bloody aura. 契约羊皮纸漂浮到苏晓身前,他抬手按了上去,手印发现,还飘洒着淡缈的血气 Su Xiao signs this contract at the same time, the parchment that another in his sleeve cuff proliferates the blood mark curls up, twines on his small arm, is sticking to the skin. 苏晓签订这契约的同时,他袖口内的另一张遍布血纹的羊皮纸卷起,缠绕在他的小臂上,紧贴着皮肤。 In the sleeve cuff on this contract parchment, has drawn up contract, this contract is Reincarnation Paradise the notarization, this contract, is interferes with Su Xiao to sign contract contract. 袖口内这张契约羊皮纸上,早已拟定好契约,此契约轮回乐园所公证,这契约,是干涉苏晓契约契约 Makes the person have doubts on first hearing very much, its principle is, Su Xiao first signed this 100 by Reincarnation Paradise the notarization blood agreement, " agreement decides " a content by the contract strength, contract that in the following several minutes, he will sign is invalid. 乍一听很让人疑惑,其原理为,苏晓先签了这份100由轮回乐园所公证的血契,凭契约的力量「契定」一条内容,在接下来的几分钟内,他所签的契约均无效。 The only individual strength resists the strength of contract, in the throw straw against the wind , must defeat the magic with the magic, likewise, must resist the strength of contract with the contract strength. 单凭个人的力量对抗契约之力,是在螳臂挡车,正所谓,要用魔法打败魔法,同理,要用契约的力量去抵御契约之力。 The move of present is not multipurpose, notarization contract is invalid to Reincarnation Paradise and void tree, the former is the common origin, is unable to use this method, the latter is the notarization side, the strength of contract is too strong. 眼下的这招并非万能,对轮回乐园、虚空之树所公证的契约无效,前者是同源,无法使用这种手段,后者是公证方,契约之力太强。 Except this, some blood agreement many drawbacks, for example after the activation, in 5 minutes have not signed other contract with others, this expensive blood agreement expires. 除这点,血契还有不少弊端,例如在激活后,五分钟内不与别人签其他契约,这昂贵的血契就失效。 The construction blood agreement must consume the jurisdiction rank, the Su Xiao present imprint rank is Lv.76, the foundation of jurisdiction rank is also Lv.76, is very frequently high because of his Comprehensive Evaluation, therefore obtained many extra jurisdiction ranks, after these extra jurisdiction ranks accumulate, has 26 levels fully. 构建血契需消耗权限等级,苏晓现在的烙印等级为Lv.76,权限等级的基础也是Lv.76,因他的综合评价经常很高,所以获得了很多额外的权限等级,这些额外权限等级累积后,足有26级。 Foundation jurisdiction rank Lv.76, extra jurisdiction rank Lv.4, the Su Xiao's jurisdiction rank is eight step upper limits in addition, Lv.80, wants to promote again, was promotes nine steps the matters. 基础权限等级Lv.76,加上额外权限等级Lv.4,苏晓的权限等级达到八阶上限,Lv.80,再想提升,就是晋升九阶的事了。 The 22 levels of extra jurisdiction ranks of being rich, ordinary no function, the jurisdiction rank that but sometimes, these are rich is especially useful, for example consumes Lv.1, constructs a blood agreement. 富于的22级额外权限等级,平常没什么作用,但有些时候,这些富于的权限等级格外有用,就比如消耗Lv.1,构建一份血契。 This blood agreement, is Su Xiao finds out, the inspiration is that must defeat the magic with the magic, he is using contract, avoids itself signing to oneself disadvantageous contract. 这血契,是苏晓自己想出,灵感就是那句要用魔法打败魔法,他是在用契约,避免自己签一些对自身不利的契约 At present this time is the experiment, looks oneself consumed the blood agreement of jurisdiction rank construction, whether can become effective, not only makes the opposite party think oneself have signed contract, and can depend on the blood agreement, contract that the opposite party draws up, isolates, even if breaks a contract, contract of opposite party is unable to become effective. 眼下这次是试验,看自己消耗了权限等级构建的血契,是否能生效,既让对方认为自己已签订了契约,又能凭血契,将对方所拟定的契约,进行隔绝,哪怕违约,对方的契约也无法生效。 The popular analogy is, penalty after violation, is equivalent to one by the fighter aircraft that the missile locks, how regardless of the floral formula avoidance, to be exploded also the scrap copper and iron finally, the blood agreement was equivalent to this fighter aircraft loads the infrared jamming bullet, the missile came, a big piece of infrared jamming bullet let out, although did not determine to be able 100 interception, but can also socialize. 通俗比喻就是,违约后的惩罚,相当于一辆被导弹锁定的战斗机,无论怎么花式躲避,最终也会被炸成废铜烂铁,血契则相当于给这架战斗机加载红外干扰弹,导弹来了,一大片红外干扰弹放出去,虽说不确定能100拦截,但也能周旋一下。 Before the parchment floats the Morey body, she examines Su Xiao according to the above hand imprint, after determining does not have the issue, well satisfied receives contract. 羊皮纸漂浮回莫雷身前,她查看苏晓按在上面的手印,确定没问题后,心满意足的将契约收起。 This contract has the fetter to the three parties, the main contents are, during cooperation, if Morey and Moon Apostle do not have the brain remnant behavior, Su Xiao cannot make a move to kill two people, Morey and Moon Apostle before completing cooperation, cannot run, otherwise, 80 of their asset, will belong to Su Xiao all. 契约对三方有束缚,主要内容为,在合作期间,如果莫雷月使徒没有脑残行为,苏晓不能出手将两人弄死,莫雷月使徒在完成合作前,不能跑路,否则的话,她们两人资产的80,将归属苏晓所有。 At present this contract completed 2/3, must wait for Moon Apostle also to sign, can be complete. 眼下这份契约完成了三分之二,要等月使徒也签订,才会算是完整。 I should make anything.” “我应该做什么。” Morey does not prepare to continue to install the salt fish, since cooperated, must make anything, although lies down to win very comfortably. 莫雷不准备继续装咸鱼,既然合作了,总得做点什么,虽然躺赢挺舒服的。 Mines.” “挖矿。” Heard Su Xiao saying that Morey like stepped on the tail, excited stood up saying: Cracking a joke, I am Battle angel! Will I mine?” 听闻苏晓这么说,莫雷就像被踩了尾巴般,激动的站起身说道:“开什么玩笑,我可是战斗天使!我会去挖矿?” , And ~ 啪、啪、啪~ The scattered applause transmits, is Boubo woof, A' Mu, Baja, does not need the expression, this taunt feeling, making the face of Morey become flushed. 稀稀落落的鼓掌声传来,是布布汪、阿姆巴哈,无需言辞,这嘲讽感,让莫雷的脸都涨红。 Morey high sound said: My Morey, Battle angel, does not mine.” 莫雷高声道:“我莫雷,战斗天使,不挖矿。” ...... 啪啪啪…… The applause one is warm. 掌声一下就热烈起来。 Good!” “好!” Baja also shouted good, this Morey almost sociality death. 巴哈还喊了个好,这把莫雷差点社会性死亡。 Does not mine, did you determine?” “不挖矿,你确定?” Very determined.” “十分确定。” Good, you take Housman, the steel tooth, 300 wild boar people, form the surprise attack team, loots the family clan 40 km away to match.” “那好,你带上豪斯曼、钢牙,还有300名野猪人,组建突袭队,去洗劫40公里外的眷族要赛。” Su Xiao has this idea early, continuously without finding candidate, before was the preparation lets hunt for the tide to do this matter, who thinks, hunted for the tide to be attacked in " " , the injury of nearly is on the verge of death returned to the supreme headquarters. 苏晓早有这想法,一直没找到人选,之前是准备让猎潮做这件事,可谁想到,猎潮在「洛亚什」遭到突袭,以近乎濒死的伤势逃回大本营。 A' Mu and Baja, although can also be the leader, but they are the Su Xiao's followers, once exposes, the risk is too high. 阿姆巴哈虽也能作为头领,可它们是苏晓的从者,一旦暴露,风险太高。 Su Xiao has never belittled the intelligence means of family clan three big influences, at present he must grow silently, before the number of wild boar person reaches the certain scale, is not easy the family clan to have the upfront conflict. 苏晓从未小觑过眷族三大势力的情报手段,眼下他要默默发育,在野猪人的数量达到一定规模前,不易于眷族发生正面冲突。 At present under Su Xiao has 3655 wild boar person soldiers, this quantity seems like not many, but has been able the coming to a stop foundation, they to go to the disassimilation beast territory to go hunting today, the in addition 2638 pig headman coolies mine, side Su Xiao comes the second day of soil area, on the same day the income was the active ores of 73 units. 眼下苏晓麾下有3655名野猪人战士,这个数量看似不多,但已能站稳根基,他们今天去异化兽领地打猎,外加2638名猪头人苦力挖矿,苏晓来边壤区的第二天,当天收益为73个单位的活性矿石。 Let Morey lead to loot the family clan side the fort, even the matter makes to the family clan union that side, that side cannot find out Morey to be related with Su Xiao, wild boar people who go to together, all dress up the appearance of junkman. 莫雷带队去洗劫眷族方的要塞,就算事情闹到眷族同盟那边去,那边也查不出莫雷苏晓有关,一同去的野猪人们,全打扮成拾荒者的模样。 Loots the obtained active ore, the pig headman who as well as tribulations, the back supreme headquarters, other incomes, all belong to Morey. 洗劫所得的活性矿石,以及劫来的猪头人,送回大本营,其他收益,一律归莫雷所有。 Said it and meant it.” “一言为定。” Morey agreed immediately, recently two days, she hid in Moon Apostle that careless is uncomfortable to the whole body, every day plays the game and is lying down, she felt own a little dwelling, gradually Moon Apostle. 莫雷当即同意,最近两天,她在月使徒那藏身地苟到浑身难受,每天就打游戏和躺着,她感觉自己都有点宅了,逐渐月使徒化。 Morey takes Housman and steel tooth leaves, the other 300 wild boar person soldiers, she must select personally, makes the elite surprise attack team. 莫雷带上门外的豪斯曼与钢牙离开,剩余的300名野猪人战士,她要亲自去挑,弄个精英奇袭队。 After Morey had/left the commander-in-chief room, Baja asked in a low voice: Boss, did we before, why loot how many T3 level or the T3 above fort? This may compared with mining the development, did not keep the living witness quickly, kills wants the dead main body, after burnt down, the possibility of that side the family clan tracing is not big.” 莫雷出了总指挥室后,巴哈低声问道:“老大,我们之前,为什么洗劫几个T3级或T3以上要塞?这可比挖矿发展的快多了,不留活口,弄死要死本体,一把火烧了之后,眷族那边追查过来的可能不大。” „......” “……” Su Xiao had not replied why he didn't have to loot the T3 level fort? Actually the reason is very simple, the T3 level or the T3 level above fort, had not the low probability to build the heavy artillery level weapon, if in the strategic point by that thing bang, or placed the attack the central area, even Su Xiao, still had the big probability body dead, the heavy artillery level weapon was the war weapons of eight steps. 苏晓没回答,他为什么一直没去洗劫T3级要塞?其实原因很简单,T3级或T3级以上的要塞,有不低的概率布设了重炮级武器,要是被那东西轰中要害,或是身处攻击的中心区,就算是苏晓,也有大概率身死,重炮级武器是八阶的战争兵器。 The stamina quantity to war weapon, the stamina quantity does not press first-order, best careful, goal that kind of thing was created, kills all living creatures, and has intransportable or the attack frequency slow and other weakness, all are centralized in the might. 体力量对上战争武器,个体力量不压一阶,最好小心点,那类东西被创造出的目的,就是弄死一切活物,并且多数拥有不可移动或是攻击频率缓慢等弱点,一切都集中在威力上。 Su Xiao stands before the lunette window, looks the grabbing team that below valiant embarks spirited, not all T3 level forts provide the heavy artillery level weapon, moreover from now on and family clan will have the upfront conflict, facing the heavy artillery level weapon, will be the potluck, will let Housman, the steel tooth first under the adaptation, in order to avoid will draw the hip from now on. 苏晓站在弧形窗前,看着下方雄纠纠气昂昂出发的劫掠队,并非所有T3级要塞都配备重炮级武器,况且今后与眷族发生正面冲突,面对重炮级武器,是家常便饭,让豪斯曼、钢牙先适应下,以免今后拉胯。 Except for this, about Drastic change solution The aspect, Su Xiao has the progress. 除了这点,关于【剧变溶液】方面,苏晓已有进展。 Moreover, Su Xiao also has a very bold plan, at first, he estimated the talent that the pig headmen at least should some be possible to excavate, he discovered afterward , the bloodlines potential of pig headmen, had not been developed the extreme by the family clan in " life factory " . 不仅如此,苏晓还有个很大胆的计划,最初时,他估测猪头人们至少应该有些可发掘的天赋,后来他发现,并没有,猪头人们的血脉潜力,已被眷族在「生命工厂」开发到了极点。 The pig headmen take overdrawing the bloodlines potential as the price, obtained the extremely strong tolerance and compatibility, why this is also some forts, making the pig headmen mine for 22 hours, only sleep one hour, the pig headman can still insist several years of reason, this overdrew the bloodlines potential, tolerance and compatibility that received in exchange. 猪头人们以透支血脉潜力为代价,获得了极强的耐受性与适应性,这也是为何有些要塞,让猪头人们挖矿22小时,只睡眠一个多小时,猪头人依然能坚持好几年的原因,这是透支了血脉潜力,换取到的耐受性与适应性。 Besides Housman, the steel tooth and fireball squad, more than ten thousand pig headmen, have not presented the unit that can highlight again, besides anti- punches thick with the blood, the fight, learn/study, no grows. 除豪斯曼、钢牙、火球小队外,万余名猪头人,没再出现才能突出的单位,除了抗揍与血厚外,无论是战斗、学习等,没任何长出。 It is not right, these pig headmen can eat especially, that side the food merchant, has regarded as the super super client Caesar. 不对,这些猪头人特能吃,食材商人那边,已将凯撒视为超级大客户。 Su Xiao saves the strength at present the way is, purchases the pig headman, later differentiates whether has to become the potential of soldier. 苏晓眼下积攒战力的途径为,购买猪头人,之后区分是否有成为战士的潜质。 Selects the process of reserve duty soldier, must reject 20% pig headmen, later makes them go to the territory of disassimilation beast, in three pig headmen, can transform into the wild boar person comes back, is very good situation. 选出预备役战士的过程,就要剔除20%的猪头人,之后再让他们去异化兽的领地,三名猪头人中,有一名能蜕变为野猪人并回来,已是很不错的情况。 Assuming that buys 100 pig headmen, can become the wild boar person, only has about 23 ~ 25. 假设买来100名猪头人,能成为野猪人的,只有23~25名左右。 Thinks that this is very good? It is not, these wild boar people, but among life and death big transforms frightened, they will be away from will fight also the section of road to walk. 认为这已是很不错?并不是,这些野猪人,只是因生死间的大恐惧而蜕变,他们距离会战斗还有一段路要走。 That is, buys 100 pig headmen, in the short time can pick up 1 ~ 3 soldiers, is the limit, remaining is only dares to clash, anti- hit compared with before. 就是说,买来100名猪头人,短时间内能挑出1~3名战士,已是极限了,剩下的只算是敢冲,比以前抗打。 When war, once the casualty quantity surpasses 30%, wild boar people will produce unavoidably dread, over 50% casualties, will successively have the retreating phenomenon, over 60%, that is comprehensive retreating. 战争时,一旦己方死伤数量超过30%,野猪人们会难免的产生畏惧,超过50%死伤,会陆续出现溃逃现象,超过60%,那就是全面的溃逃。 The Su Xiao clear truth, 99 people will fear death, when faced with hopeless situation, what can not run away is the warrior, escaped , can only say that treasures own life, indisputable. 苏晓清楚一个道理,99的人都会怕死,面临绝境时,能不逃的是勇士,逃了的,也只能说是珍惜自己的性命,无可厚非。 Su Xiao does not think oneself will not make mistakes, arrives " side soil area " develops two days later, he had realized that this situation, must change, otherwise this time has high probability disastrous defeat, thus welcomed by the destiny that the human wave attack besieged dead. 苏晓不认为自己不会犯错,来到「边壤区」发展两天后,他已意识到这种情况,必须做出改变,否则这次有很高的概率惨败,从而迎来被人海战术围攻到死的命运。 If such, was bad the retribution, the red world, having a greedy appetite was besieged the lethal powerhouse by Su Xiao with the human wave attack, immediately having a smile dwelling place of the dead. 如果是那样,就是糟了报应,想必绯世、贪食等被苏晓用人海战术围攻致死的强者,当即会含笑九泉。 Making mistakes was not fearful, what is fearful is the knowledge does not change mistakenly, as well as does not know oneself make mistakes, Su Xiao determined, at present own development method is wrong, development was too slow, and is unstable. 犯错了不可怕,可怕的是知错不改,以及根本不知道自己犯错,苏晓确定,眼下自己的发展方式是错误的,发展的太慢了,且不稳定。 Su Xiao in hesitant, attempts to summon the insect clan, thinks own Incursio status, in addition this is the void tree already notarization World Snatching War, so long as by the void tree control to oneself as Incursio, were summoned the insect clan, that is void sets up dual executions of Revelation Paradise, without the suspense, dies certainly a violent death at the scene. 苏晓在犹豫,是否尝试召唤虫族,想到自己入侵者的身份,外加这是虚空之树已公证的世界争夺战,只要被虚空之树检核到自己以入侵者的身份,召唤来虫族,那就是虚空之树天启乐园的双重处决,没悬念的,一定当场暴毙。 Assuming that Incursio this status exposed, Su Xiao estimated that so long as have not done the matter of that challenge void tree regular bottom line, Reincarnation Paradise will provide to give itself to shelter, otherwise world Incursio also overly fraud people. 假设入侵者这身份暴露了,苏晓估测,只要自己没做那种挑战虚空之树规则底线的事,轮回乐园会提供给自己庇护,否则世界入侵太坑人了点。 The idea of Su Xiao summon insect clan, only eliminated part, cannot summon the insect clan, but cannot he unable to use the strength of insect clan , what does the powerful place of insect clan lie in? 苏晓召唤虫族的想法,只打消了一部分,不能召唤虫族,但不能他无法使用虫族的力量,试问,虫族的强大之处在于什么? Quantity? Individual strength? It is not, but is evolution and war of insect clan, the insect clan, plunders the resources and development for the war, finally maintains the species to continue. 数量?个体战力?都不是,而是虫族的进化性与战争性,虫族就是为了战争、掠去资源、发展,最终保持物种延续。 The Su Xiao's mentality is, T4 level fort that at present he has, is the end fort, is in itself a living creature, at first when sees this thing, he felt, this thing and insect nest is a bit like, is only the concrete function is different. 苏晓的思路为,眼下他拥有的T4级要塞,也就是末日要塞,本身就是个活物,最初看到这东西时,他就感觉,这东西与虫巢有点像,只是具体作用不同。 Assuming that promotes the end fort to the certain extent, making its vitality enough strong, then one of devil insect nest organs, " evolution room " the gene injects the fort core, later is compromising through Alchemy, then, end fort, whether can present " evolution room " similarly organ? 假设将末日要塞提升到一定程度,让其生命力足够强壮,那么把恶魔虫巢内的器官之一,「进化室」的基因注射到要塞核心,之后在通过炼金学调和,那么,末日要塞,是否能出现类似「进化室」的器官? Su Xiao does not need this " evolution room " to evolve strong pig headman, he wants this organ to be huge enough, letting many pig headmen to enter simultaneously. 苏晓不需要这个「进化室」能进化出多强的猪头人,他要这器官足够庞大,让很多猪头人能同时进入其中。 Properly speaking, at the overbearing degree of insect clan gene, other lifeform moistening dies, the pig headmen are different, they by family clan generations of cultivations was too ruthless, making their bloodlines potential almost overdraw completely, trades the tolerance and adaptive faculty, takes to become a higher hard labor. 按理说,以虫族基因的霸道程度,其他生物沾之即死,猪头人们不同,他们被眷族一代代培育的太狠了,让他们的血脉潜力几乎全部透支,换来耐受力与适应力,以成为更高的苦工。 The so-called bloodlines potential, does not reduce the life span, this that is more ruthless, after the bloodlines potential of pig headmen was overdrawn, they could not become the powerhouses of eight step top echelons forever, was Housman that degree, is very rare, in addition that had the Warlord addition. 所谓血脉潜力,不是缩短寿命,这那更狠,猪头人们的血脉潜力被透支后,他们永远都成不了八阶顶尖梯队的强者,达到豪斯曼那种程度,已是很罕见,外加那是有战争领主的加成。 Also the family clans were never worried no wonder the pig headmen revolt, as well as does not limit the number of pig headman, for several hundred years, in the pig headman has only had a legendary warrior because of to subdue|grams. 也难怪眷族们从不担心猪头人们反抗,以及不限制猪头人的数量,几百年来,猪头人中仅出过一位传奇斗士・奥因克。 And mysterious because of the source vitality of to subdue|grams within the body, is not his own originally, but is his kind teacher, own most source vitality, in the extremely dangerous way, injects to mysterious because of the spinal cord of to subdue|grams. 并且奥因克体内的本源生命力,并非是他自己原本的,而是他的恩师,将自己的大半本源生命力,以极其危险的方式,注入到奥因克的脊髓内。 Otherwise, the bloodlines of only pig headman, legendary warrior has not possibly been that degree because of to subdue|grams forever, he has the powerful spirit and will, but he when the birth, places in the bloodlines shackles of family clan. 否则的话,单凭猪头人的血脉,传奇斗士・奥因克永远没可能达到那种程度,他有强大的精神、意志,可他在诞生时,就身处眷族的血脉牢笼中。 Was being overdrawn the bloodlines potential because of the pig headman completely, obtained the tyrannical tolerance and adaptive faculty, Su Xiao will have this plan. 正因猪头人被完全透支了血脉潜力,获得了强横的耐受力与适应力,苏晓才会有这种计划。 He must rely on end fort Alchemy insect clan mother nest the gene of evolution room, transforms one greatly " evolution room " , depending on this, making the pig headman fast can on the battlefield soldier. 他要凭借末日要塞炼金学虫族母巢・进化室的基因,改造出一个巨大的「进化室」,凭这点,让猪头人快速成为能上战场的战士。 If all goes well, Su Xiao speculated, he could rely on to " evolution room " in injects the different genes, the soldier who causes the different tendencies, for example the rewiring soldier, attacks the soldier and others. 如果一切顺利,苏晓推测,他或许能凭借向「进化室」内注入不同的基因,弄出不同倾向的战士,例如重装战士、突袭战士等。 If achieved these, really can develop. 如果达成了这些,才是真的能发展起来。 Sits before the test platform, Su Xiao felt that this plans to be worth trying, but this need first causes 100 purities Drastic change solution, Only has thorough relieves the end fort shackles, may realize all these. 坐在试验台前,苏晓感觉这计划值得一试,不过这需要先弄出100纯度的【剧变溶液】,唯有彻底解除末日要塞的‘枷锁’,才有可能实现这一切。
