Chapter 1 What kind of experience is it like to be an outer disciple of Xianzong?
As we all know, spiritual roots are the prerequisite for cultivating immortals.
However, among all the living beings in the world, none of them have spiritual roots. What's more, spiritual roots are also divided into three, six, and nine grades. The spiritual root is too inferior, and it is also impossible to worship the fairy gate.
So, to be able to become an outer sect disciple of Xianzong has surpassed more than 90% of the people in this world.
This is already excellent!
So... what kind of experience is it like to become an outer sect disciple of Xianzong?
What do you think of the outer sect disciples of Xianzong like this:
Food, clothing, housing and transportation are all covered by the sect, and spiritual stone pills and other training materials are regularly distributed. You only need to concentrate on practicing and strive to improve the realm, and then stand out in a certain sect competition, be promoted to the inner sect, and even the true biography. .
Do you feel that the future is bright?
Actually, the real disciples of the outer sect of Xianzong are like this...
It's hot and midsummer.
The scorching sun scorched the earth like a fire, and waves of heat waved up.
Xu Ke (kè) is standing in a hemp field, holding a sickle, bending over to harvest the "silver leaf jute" in the field. Sweat flowed down the cheeks to the corners of the mouth, and a bitterness welled up on the tip of the tongue and in the heart.
This is the daily life of the disciples of the Immortal Sect's outer sect?
Shouldn't cultivating immortals be eating wind and drinking dew, and leaving the world at ease?
Who will tell me why cultivating immortals still have to farm?
This is so wrong!
Lao Tzu came to cultivate immortals, not to farm! I'm stupid!
Xu Ke wiped off his sweat, stretched out his hand and beat his sore back, cursing in his heart.
Just now, when Xu Ke "woke up" from this fourteen-year-old "immortal cultivator", Xu Ke learned that he had traveled to a world of immortal cultivators and that he was an outer disciple of the "Haoyang Immortal Sect". Surprised and delighted, there is always a kind of self-confidence that "I am the protagonist".
However, before he had time to be complacent and imagine the future, reality gave him a blow to the head.
The outer disciples of Haoyang Immortal Sect are not the type who "don't care about production, just practice".
Even, in the entire cultivation world, there are no outer disciples who "don't do production, just practice", and it is impossible to have such outer disciples.
No one does any work and only cultivates immortals. Are the resources for cultivation falling from the sky?
Not only outer disciples are engaged in the production of cultivation resources, but even inner disciples are also engaged in production. Only true disciples can be completely off-duty, just focus on cultivation and ignore miscellaneous chores.
In the sect structure of the practice world, outer disciples are responsible for the production of basic resources, such as planting, breeding, mining, etc. Inner disciples are responsible for "finishing", such as alchemy and refining tools. They are all producers of practice resources.
Only the true disciples and the high-level sect do not need to engage in production, they are the sect's military force.
An outer disciple who wants to cover all the necessities of life in the sect? Want to receive spiritual stone pills and other cultivation resources on time?
Hehe, the sect accepts disciples, not a master!
So, the life of the disciples of Xianzong's outer sect is not as good as imagined.
Take Xu Ke as an example. When he was ten years old, he was detected to have spiritual roots. He was accepted as a Taoist boy by Haoyang Xianzong and entered the mountain gate.
Are you asking about the attributes and grades of spiritual roots? There is no detailed inspection at all, okay?
As long as you are not a peerless talent, and do not have the talent to directly become a true disciple, who cares what spiritual root attribute you are? Who cares what spiritual root level you are?
Just throw away a book of introductory exercises, and you will know it by yourself after practicing.
When practicing qi, which spiritual energy is easier to absorb, it means that you have the spiritual root talent of this attribute.
What if you can absorb any kind of aura, but you can't tell the nature of the aura?
How simple, just practice the "Small Five Elements Hunyuan Zhenjue"!
Xu Ke's "Small Five Elements Hunyuan Zhenjue" is learned in this way.
At the age of twelve, Xu Ke started to practice and entered the first level of Qi training. He also learned the planting techniques of "silver leaf jute" and "thousand bell millet", and mastered the necessary spells for farming. After passing the examination, he Promoted from a Taoist boy to an outer disciple.
Then... Zongmen allocated him ten acres of land, a thatched hut, some farm tools and seeds, and let him start farming.
According to the Zongmen system, outer disciples engaged in planting have to turn over 70% of their annual output to the Zongmen, and the remaining 30% belong to themselves. This 30% of the income needs to be used to maintain one's own food, clothing, housing, transportation and practice consumption.
The harvest is good, and there is still some savings. The harvest is not good... It is difficult to even maintain a living, so how can there be any resources for cultivation?
So, after two years, Xu Ke hasn't even filled up the progress bar of "First Level of Qi Training", and he feels lonely in cultivating immortality.
Fortunately, if you don't eat Lingmi, ordinary rice is very cheap, and you can still have enough food and clothing.
But... I came here to cultivate immortality!
Xu Ke was full of depression, swung his sickle, and chopped at the silver leaf jute in front of him.
There was a "click", the stick... didn't break!
Picking up the sickle and looking at it, the golden glow that was originally shining on the blade has gone out at this moment. The "Sharp Art" blessed on the blade has no effect.
"Silver leaf jute" is the main material for refining talisman paper. It has a tough texture and is hard to hurt by ordinary iron. Only with the "sharpness technique" on the sickle can it be harvested smoothly.
With Xu Ke's 1st level of Qi training, he would lose mana after casting the “Sharp Art” five times.
Before harvesting jute, he had used up five times of "sharpness". To continue casting the "Sharp Art", one has to meditate under the scorching sun to recover mana.
If there is "Huiqi Pill", it is easy to solve the problem. But... can I really afford the "Hui Qi Pill"?
"Grass! I can't live through this day!"
Cursing angrily, Xu Ke kicked the "Silver Leaf Jute" in front of him.
The tough "silver leaf jute" bounced back from being kicked, and was slapped on the face with a "swipe".
Xu Ke covered his face, cursed angrily, and jumped in anger.
Is this also called cultivating immortals? I can't get along at all!
Xu Ke tried to call out in his heart: "System, are you there?"
However...the system you called is out of service area!
It seems that a certain "system supplier" surnamed Li did not come here to do business.
Since there is no system, what about plug-ins? Where is Goldfinger? Where's my gold finger?
Suddenly, there was a clear sound in Xu Ke's mind, like a jade chime.
My eyes were in a daze for a moment, a clear light like water lit up, and an old and mottled banner scroll slowly unfolded in my mind.
"God rewards those who work hard!"
The four vigorous and simple characters, shining with dazzling brilliance, emerged on the banner scroll, as if containing mysterious and unpredictable power.
This is my golden finger?
God rewards those who work hard? Is it the heavenly reward for hard work that "pays must be rewarded"?
Good guy, amazing!
Xu Ke's previous life experience made him understand that hard work cannot make you rich, and hard work cannot make you successful.
But now... hard work will pay off, hard work will surely succeed, it is really surprising!
At this time, on the banner scroll in my mind, under the four big characters "Heaven rewards diligence", another line of small characters appeared.
"One point of hard work, [one point] (altered) 100% of the harvest, and there must be rewards for hard work."
Xu Ke was taken aback for a moment, and couldn't help but say "Fuck" again!
"You get what you sow" is scary enough, but there is even a "alteration" that turns it into a 100% harvest, who gave me such a big hook?
With such a heaven-defying trick in hand, even Lin Daiyu can pull out weeping willows upside down, and even Xue Baochai can punch the town of Guanxi!
At this moment, Xu Ke had only one feeling in his heart: this one is sure!
