Castle Of Black Iron - Chapter 91
Chapter 91: A Surprise from the Small Tree
Translator: WQL Editor: Geoffrey
’’Bighead, do you need me to send you a bowl of fish soup at noon?’’ The next morning, seeing
that Zhang Tie was preparing to leave the tree base and walk to the mines, Barley looked at
Zhang Tie with a look full of desire, causing goosebumps to form all over Zhang Tie's body.
’’No need. At noon, I will just casually eat a bit when I'm out,’’ Zhang Tie replied as he hurriedly
put the mining basket on his back.
’’How about I go mining for you? All of my achievements will belong to you. I swear that the
amount will not be less than one ton of ores a day...’’ Bagdad patted his chest, causing ’’Pa Pa’’
’’Really, there's no need! Mining is my hobby. For the time being, I still find it to be interesting!’’
Zhang Tie had also refused Bagdad. Seeing their pitiful looks, Zhang Tie felt that he needed to
show them a bit of hope. For them to be only able to read it for an hour, this was the most
painful thing to them. ’’If I can eat boar meat tonight, my mood might be better!’’
’’Brothers, did you hear that? Boar meat we need to catch a boar today! If we get lucky today,
then we can carry one back by noon...’’ Doug shouted out loudly.
’’Fine. Hurry up, guys! If we fail to capture one with our existing traps, then we will dig another
Leaving one person to keep watch of the tree base, all the other horny students moved on and
became a hundred times more active than Zhang Tie. At the sight of these guys, who were
acting kind in front of him earlier, leaving him alone, Zhang Tie shook his head and inwardly
heaved a deep sigh. It seems the power of the <Iron-Blood Fist Skill>book was truly
As Zhang Tie and the other members of the Hit-Plane Brotherhood had never learned a highlevel
fighting skill or a cultivation technique like the <Iron-Blood Fist Skill>, they had definitely
taken the contents within the book as the greatest fighting skill that they had ever encountered.
After every one of them read it for an hour last night, they were all attracted by this book and
had difficulties parting with it. Every member of the Hit-Plane Brotherhood knew that this was
a rare opportunity, one which could not be easily obtained, thus they all treasured this
opportunity. Although they didn't say it out loud, within their hearts, they all felt a deep
gratitude towards Zhang Tie. They felt that Zhang Tie was a righteous individual and was truly
qualified to be their brother, especially since he was even willing to share secret knowledge
Seeing them disappear before him with an extremely quick speed, Zhang Tie smiled.
Afterwards, he suddenly had a weird premonition. It seems that the Castle of Black Iron would
bring him a surprise today.
Half an hour later, with a burning torch in hand, Zhang Tie entered that tunnel where he used
to dig in the mine. First, he set up a small trap at the mouth of the tunnel that would warn him
if someone entered the tunnel. Afterwards, Zhang Tie removed his mining basket and inserted
the torch into a gap between two rocks. Walking into the shadow of another tunnel where the
light did not reach, he took in a deep breath and closed his eyes. There appeared the arched door
in his mind lock on... enter!
’’Handsome and Magnificent Castle Lord, welcome to the Castle of Black Iron!’’
As it was ’’sunny and brilliant’’ in the Castle of Black Iron, Zhang Tie narrowed his eyes, and
after a short while, he gradually began to adapt to the sunlight. All the light here radiated from
the colorful fog that flowed around the surrounding space. The light was soft; it was as if the
light had shone through a rainbow or the rays of the sun before shining down, giving Zhang Tie
a comfortable feeling. Zhang Tie once wondered whether there were night and day in the Castle
of Black Iron and whether it remained the same even after he left; however, he soon gave up
Upon stepping on the firm land in the Castle of Black Iron once again, complicated feelings
burst forth in Zhang Tie. Due to the attack from the seven wild wolves that almost took his life
and had almost forced him to bid farewell to the world forever, Zhang Tie felt as if he had been
Through this crisis, Zhang Tie felt again that strength was very important in this age.
After taking in a deep breath of fresh, aura-filled air, Zhang Tie leisurely opened the basic
attributes panel of the Castle of Black Iron.
Castle of Black Iron
Width: 1 Krosa
Aura value: 3968
Merit value: 2117
Basic energy storage: 4285
Special output: void
With the increasing number of plants within the Castle of Black Iron, the aura value had
presently skyrocketed over the past two weeks. At the sight of the quickly increasing numbers,
Zhang Tie became very excited.
The moment he closed the basic attributes panel, a dialogue jumped out automatically.
The liquid yeast has completed its mutation and evolution for the first time. Please view the
Soon after the dialogue disappeared, Zhang Tie recalled that he had used several points of basic
energy storage on the liquid yeast before the start of the survival training, which would
complete its mutation and evolution after 15 days. Therefore, Zhang Tie hurriedly opened the
’’Microorganisms’’ management panel in ’’Carbon-based Living Beings and Species
Management’’ under the ’’Living Beings and Population Management’’ to check the results of
the mutation and evolution.
Two messages instantly popped out
No new liquid yeast variant was formed through the mutation and evolution, thus the
mutation and evolution has failed!
If you wish to attempt to mutate and evolve the liquid yeast again, the system suggests you
to increase the amount of basic energy storage points!
Thinking of how he had inputted 0.1 basic energy storage points into the liquid yeast last time,
Zhang Tie felt embarrassed. After thinking for a while, Zhang Tie attempted for a second time
to mutate and evolve the liquid yeast. This time, Zhang Tie decided that he will definitely
succeed. Aside from using the maximum amount of basic energy storage possible, Zhang Tie
also increased the amount of merit value points by ten-fold and doubled the amount of aura
After a series of steps, two dialogues popped out again
On June 13rd, 889th year of the Black Iron Calendar, Handsome and Magnificent Castle
Lord had inputted 600 points of aura value, 50 points of merit value, and 340 points of basic
energy storage into the mutation and evolution of a bottle of liquid yeast.
It is estimated that the mutation and evolution will take 360 hours. Handsome and
Magnificent Castle Lord, please wait patiently!
Since the surprise didn't come from the mutation and evolution of the bottle of liquid yeast,
then it could only come from the Manjusaka Karma Fruit Tree.
Moving towards the small tree, before he had even been able to stand before it, he had already
smelt an unforgettable fragrance; the fragrance was a mix of the Leakless Fruit and a fragrance
that contained both the smell of sandalwood and fruits. However, this time, the fragrance
coming from the Leakless Fruit contained something special.
As expected, the tree brought Zhang Tie a huge surprise
On the twig where the first Leakless Fruit had once grown were two Leakless Fruits. Judging
from its color, one of the two fruits had already become ripe, while the other one would ripen
soon. At the sight of the two hanging Leakless Fruits, Zhang Tie finally recovered his
composure. Previously, whether a ripe Leakless Fruit would fall off the tree or whether it would
delay the growth of the next Leakless Fruit had always been a concern of Zhang Tie's. However,
at the sight of the two Leakless Fruit hanging closely, Zhang Tie felt at ease.
This Leakless Fruit has become ripe. Usage: Pick and direct eat it. Notice: The fruit cannot
be taken out of the Castle of Black Iron. After twelve hours of having been picked off the tree, its
energy and vitality will gradually decline.
31 hours left before this Leakless Fruit becomes ripe!
Zhang Tie read the above two warnings regarding the two hanging Leakless Fruits.
Looking at the two Leakless Fruits, Zhang Tie felt really happy. Beside the Leakless Fruit, Zhang
Tie found the Iron Body Fruit, though it looked different than last time. He then checked its
progress bar; upon finding that it was three-quarters ripe, Zhang Tie burst into laughter. At the
sight of the progress bar, Zhang Tie remembered his tumbles within the deep hole dug by the
Gold-Eating Boas. Never would he have that the collisions and friction from the tumbles would
have such a marvelous effect. It was almost the same as him being beaten! It seemed that he
didn't necessarily need to find people to beat him. As long as he received damage to his body, it
would stimulate the growth of the Iron-Body Fruit. With this, this gave Zhang Tie many new
ideas, causing the road before him to become much broader than before.
However, the biggest surprise was neither the Leakless Fruits nor the Iron Body Fruit; instead,
it was the strange fruit that hung on the other side of the tree. Ever since his last encounter
with Huck and Snade, Zhang Tie realized that this small tree could produce fruits even without
his consent. With external stimulation, the tree would be able to produce fruits. Since that
incident, Zhang Tie had made it a habit to circle around the small tree to check whether new
fruits were hanging somewhere.
There really was a strange, hexagonal pitch-black fruit that was the size of a plum.
Stretching out his hand, Zhang Tie instantly got its information.
The Trouble-Reappearance Fruit has already become ripe. Usage: Pick and direct eat it.
Notice: The fruit cannot be taken out of the Castle of Black Iron. After twelve hours of having
been picked off the tree, its energy and vitality will gradually decline.
The moment the above words disappeared, another paragraph of words appeared.
This is the fruit of killing. The laws of the universe continue to circulate between life and
death. Among all deaths, deaths through fights between different species are both the most
common as well as the most frightening. Let's be brave and face the inevitable killings and
deaths in this virtual space. Let's be brave and attempt various challenges inside this virtual
space. After experience the same killings and deaths again and again, you will lose your fear
towards death and killing. You will gain freedom from killing and death, moving onto the top of
the chain of evolution! Keep in mind that the body is the container for the soul, and the soul and
spirit experience the same sensation as the body. Everything in the virtual space, including
every strand of grass or wood, is a reflection of the physical world. With the exception that you
will not die inside this virtual space, everything else is the same as that in the physical world
outside. The existence of everything inside this virtual space makes the universe treats your
Reading the above words, Zhang Tie came up with a thought, ’’I'm really rich now! The
Trouble-Reappearance Fruit looks really powerful.’’
Continually rubbing his palms, he was truly excited...
