Chapter 1: Chaos Card Pool
This was a very odd place.
The night was dark, and the red moon emitted a faint coolness.
There was a big fog under the moon, and the slightest light could not be seen.
Piercing wails came from the thick fog and echoed in the air, making people shudder.
In the nearest place from the wailing, stone steps circled the most central location, which could be vaguely seen to be separated into five sections filled with people.
Today was the last degeneration ceremony of the Chaos card pool.
After this ceremony, all the cards in the Chaos card pool, without exception, will be corrupted.
As soon as the news came out, all the cards in the pool that had been corrupted were filled with regret.
In the future, there will be no more fun in the boring life of the card pool.
With the idea that this was the last time to see some excitement, almost all the cards in the Chaos card pool came over.
The thick fog didn’t hinder their vision.
Lying in the central domain was a white-haired man.
His white skin was covered with bloodstains, and his neck, wrists, and ankles were covered with broken silver chains.
An ear-piercing howl came out of his mouth, and his sharp teeth could be vaguely seen as saliva trickled down from the corners of his mouth and dripped onto the ground.
There was no hint of sympathy or discomfort on the faces of the surrounding cards sitting on the stone steps as they excitedly observed the card lying in the central domain.
“This Chain card kid has good teeth.”
“The Chain card has degenerated into a waste card, so can I ask him out on a date?”
“The last corrupted card is actually from the Prison race.
What exactly is so attractive about this card?”
The chattering and cheerful chatter did not dilute the forest’s eerie atmosphere but made people’s hearts chill even more.
At this moment, an old man in a white robe with cranky hair, holding a dull-colored scepter, walked with graceful steps toward the chain card in the central domain.
The old man was followed by a wooden puppet, which held a black flame in its hand.
When all the cards gathered around saw him on stage, they tacitly stopped talking and quietly watched the old man.
[Card: Shax – Chain Card
Race: Prison Race
Grade: SSR (Legendary)
Chaos nurtures the spirit, and the sacred fire is inextinguishable.
I implore Chaos to forgive his darkness and cowardice and leave him a place to live].
As the words fell, the puppet pressed the flame to the forehead of the chain card.
The black flame melted into his body.
The white-haired man’s eyes filled with red blood, the veins in his neck bulged, beads of sweat dripped down his body to the ground, and pain swept through his body.
The cards sitting southeast of the stone steps stood up as the flame merged.
Some had horns on their heads and a long, thin tail behind them, or black wings, or were tall and dark-skinned, while others, like the white-haired man lying on the ground, wore chains around their necks and wrists.
These cards that seemed to be born from hell chanted lowly, with a strange rhythm in their voices, as if they were calling out for something.
As the chant rang out, the expression of the man lying in the central domain gradually calmed down.
The white hair covering his head was dyed black, and all his values were reset and turned into initial data.
Cards abandoned by their masters are discriminated against everywhere.
Even Chaos, which gave birth to them, would reject them with disgust.
However, there is nowhere for them to go but here.
Corruption is the only way for abandoned cards to stay in the Chaos card pool.
During the ritual of degeneration, cards of the same clan will chant hymns to appease the Chaos card pool, making it possible to keep the other reluctantly.
After that, the chain card will return to their original state, just like them, and live in a remote and dark place.
Half an hour passed, and the situation of the chain card stabilized.
A big man came out of the cards from the southeast side.
He looked disgustedly at the other party’s sticky and dusty clothes.
Then, he carried him directly on his shoulders towards their side.
Seeing this, the old man slowly raised the corners of his mouth and announced, “The degeneration ceremony is over.”
All the cards then seemed to have broken free from some shackles, and they looked at the chain card thrown on the ground in the southeast with different expressions.
Corrupted cards are also known as waste cards.
This is because after they are reset back to their initial stats, upgrading them will be very difficult, and no one will want to expend the effort to upgrade a card.
It would be better to draw a new card with that kind of effort.
Therefore, the possibility of corrupted cards returning to the top is almost zero.
The Chaos cards were already poorly received by the rest of the cards because of their temperament and eccentricity.
Now, all the cards in their card pool have been corrupted into waste cards.
It seems that the title of “the shame of the entire star field card pool” can never be shaken off.
What an inexplicable irony.
“The five major race cards, please retire in an orderly manner.”
The old man raised his voice.
The mood of each card was unspeakably complicated, and just as they were about to exit according to the process, a series of dings rang in their ears.
“Ding——Host #2658: Qiao Xingnan (Human) has been bound.”
“Card pool being set ……”
“Ding——Card pool selection confirmed: Star field coordinates (35, 42), Chaos Card Pool.”
“Attention! Attention! All the cards in the Chaos card pool, please be prepared.”
Hearing this sound, all the cards froze.
If the card pool that was set was any other card pool, perhaps those cards would all cheerfully greet the host, eager for the host’s summons.
But this time, the card pool that was selected was the Chaos card pool.
The five major races of the Chaos card pool, one human race, four foreign races, and some other small races that are scattered and not worth mentioning, without exception, were all thrown back into the Chaos card pool because they did not meet the host’s wishes.
Those hosts who discard their cards easily do not realize that the abandoned cards can only have a chance to live in the Chaos card pool by going through a degeneration ritual that would initialize them and make them waste cards that would never even have the possibility of being upgraded after that.
Chaos cards are, for the most part, very good-natured.
However, they are not like the cards in other card pools that still have expectations of their hosts even if they are abandoned.
They resent the humans who brought them out of Chaos but abandoned them at will.
Even if they are summoned again.
The end is already predetermined.
Corrupted cards will be abandoned by the host again because of the difficulty in upgrading and then revert back to the Chaos card pool to sink into darkness forever, waiting for the next time to be abandoned over and over again.
There seemed to be an unsettling aura surrounding all the cards, and the atmosphere was quiet and somewhat eerie.
