Liu Hong never thought he would get transmigrated! Excited to find himself in the world of his favorite cultivation MMORPG which he became stagnant water for, Liu Hong is surprised to find that he is feared and ostracized, and his cultivation lacks progression. What's going on? All of his saved characters were perfect to the max?
Liu Hong: ??? Was the cultivation this slow in the game? Surely my Sublime Chaos meridians would speed it up a bit.
Liu Hong: The Lin Family Patriarch seems to dislike me, even calling me a demon. How can this be? All of my characters have a preset 4+ affinity factor with him, even at the start. Nobody seems to want to call me by my name either??
???: What a good looking foreigner! It's unfortunate the colors of their hair and eyes are so frivolous.
Liu Hong: ?? Foreigner??? Frivolous?? What do you mean?
Liu Hong: (Takes out a mirror and spits blood) Ah !@&**@!!! It's my joke file!!!
It was a joke. Choosing such a busted character was really a joke. The blonde hair, the blue eyes, the strange, foreign and unfavorable background that no one knew the details of; even in the 10 year old game forum with stagnant water like him. It was all to get a few extra cutscenes and higher NPC aggression factor in Liu Hong's much-loved shitty cultivation MMORPG game. A test try.
Liu Hong tried it, raged about the difficulty, and abandoned the save file at only Level 3. 3 years of age. It stayed, untouched in his vault of dozens upon dozens of perfected characters for a whole year. One afternoon, when he was extremely drunk, Liu Hong died from a hit and run, only to find himself in his favorite xianxia MMORPG world.
He never thought that he would be so unlucky as to reincarnate into this very same save file!
