    Volume 1 Chapter 3: Jiang-Nan City

    "Right when the RR disease appeared, it rapidly spread around the world. All forms of life, as long as they needed to breath (whether human or flying beasts), were infected."

    "By the time humans found the existence of the RR disease, it was already too late."

    "After the infection of the RR disease, the death rate was reaching 30%. In a matter of those three months, excluding the mass deaths of animals, the population of the world dropped by nearly 2 billion!"

    "The survivors neared 5 billion, whom all have a natural resistance against the disease."

    "During these nightmarish three months, the whole planet experienced excruciating pain."

    "During this process, the 5 billion survivors realized that their bodies have strengthened. Virtually everyone's power, speed, rate of cell division, and skin toughness have at least doubled! Even an average man could easily surpass the previous world champion in running and weightlifting."

    "And then... disaster started!"

    "The humans who have lived so comfortably have strengthened so much. The beasts who have survived the RR disease have went through even harsher conditions. In their transformations, their strength has raised surprisingly far beyond humans'. And some of these horrifying beasts got even smarter!"

    "September, 2015. Starting from the attack of the plethora of organisms in the sea, countless of 'beast' transformed animals started attacking human settlements!"

    "Blood, madness!"

    "In the war between human and beast, the humans have realized that their explosive weapons that they were so proud of only worked on the lower-grade beasts. The stronger flying and crawling beasts had no fear towards the cannons. The bullets couldn’t even scratch their armor! Homing missiles are easily dodged by speedy, quick-reacting beasts."

    "Even when humans used nuclear attacks, they shockingly found out..."

    "The defense capability of the monsters were too great; only those within the blast radius of the bomb died. The monsters in the surrounding area weren't killed. The power of the bomb wasn't as strong as the humans thought it would be. Even though it killed a horde of monsters, the radiation from the bomb gave birth to even more horrifying monsters. The most famous and horrifying monster of that year was the 'Crimson Sky Wolf', which could fly and massacred hundreds of thousands of people. It was at this time people realized.... radiation could actually mutate the monsters!"


    "Although horrifying monsters appeared, powerful warriors also sprung out from the human side. The Crimson Sky Wolf was defeated by a super powerful warrior who could also fly (ranked number 2 internationally: 'Thunder Lord')."

    "These warriors saved a large amount of normal civilians in a crucial time. They assisted the army in fighting off the horde of monsters. During this time, many epic stories came about."

    "Human Scientist 'KeLuo※DeSenNa’ used materials from the corpses of monsters along with a metal called 'Blue Gold' found on the moon to make a metal alloy even harder than diamond: the Ke Luo Alloy! Given these powerful weapons that could cut through the monsters' armor, the powerful warriors didn't have to rely on just their bare hands anymore."

    This portion of history was very clear in Luo Feng's mind.

    "During the war, a large portion of the city was destroyed."

    "In the WoHuaXia continent, countries were hastily building six major bases to transfer the huge population to. For the warriors... my country and India have the largest amount! For technology, the United States, European Union, and Russia were leaders."

    "Since the number of monsters in the sea are immeasurable, all of the island countries were destroyed!"

    "Even now, the sea is the monsters' territory."

    "In the war between humanity and monsters, the only countries that are capable of defending themselves are: India, the United States, the European Union, Russia, and my country. The rest of the countries were destroyed a long time ago. In the critical moment, the United Earth Federation was formed, with the five countries as its nucleus. The United Forces of the United Earth Federation helped create many human bases all around the world."

    Luo Feng marveled.

    A war that lasted five and a half years, the most horrifying war! In this war, deaths totaled to nearly 10 billion. Only the system maintained by the five countries stayed intact, the rest of the countries' survivors mixed together in various human bases.

    Until now──

    On land, the humans maintain the advantage. But the countless monsters in the sea maintain their control over the sea.

    "From 2013 to 2021, in these eight years, was the Grand Nirvana period of human history!" Luo Feng sat on the couch.

    [DONG]~~[DONG]~~[DONG]~~[DONG]~~[DONG]

    The clock's sound echoed within the house.

    The clock on the wall rang five times, which signals that it's currently 5 PM.

    "The Grand Nirvana period." Luo Hua marveled.

    "Brother, truthfully, I can't really wrap my head around what the world was like before the Grand Nirvana Period. There were over 200 countries, so how many people were there? Only 7 billion. Some countries would be in grave danger; just one powerful beast would be able to wipe an entire country off the map."

    Luo Feng nodded, "Which is why the whole world is comprised of five powerful countries and 23 cities."

    On the entire planet, there were five countries in total: China, India, the United States of America, the European Union, and Russia. Locations such as South America and Africa made up the 23 cities, or bases.

    China had six human bases, which are the present's Six Major Cities.

    Luo Feng's home was Yi-An region's Yang Zhou city, one of the eight parts of Jiang-Nan City.

    The entire population of Jiang-Nan city neared 200 million. Yang Zhou city of Jiang-Nan City's Yi-An region had over a million people. Jiang-Nan city base used to be comprised of Yuan Jian Su*. Of course there were also Yuan An Wei*.

    *These are different kinds of ethnic groups.

    "So long ago" Luo Hua looked towards the clock hanging on the wall, "Right now it's 2056; the Grand Nirvana Period is already more than 30 years into the past. In our society, virtually everyone has to go train in a dojo. Our society is much stronger than it was 30 years ago."

    Luo Feng nodded.

    In 30 years, there definitely was a major increase in powerful warriors along with a steady progression in technology. However, many terrifying monsters have also been born.

    ※※※※※※

    [KA]

    The door was opened and a middle-aged couple walked in. The man's shirt was drenched in sweat and had some paint stains. It was clear he was very tired. The woman, holding a basket containing vegetables and meat, wasn't very tall.

    "Dad, Mom" Luo Feng immediately rose; they are his parents.

    Father Luo Hong Guo, Mother Gong Xin Lan.

    "Haha, Feng, keep reading, keep reading. Don't bother with me." Luo Hong Guo laughed. Since his son has exams soon, studying is of utmost importance in Luo Hong Guo's eyes.

    Luo Hong Guo lowered his head and saw a large plastic bottle of tap water. The fact that there was always water ready for him everytime he returned warmed his heart. After working all day, he would take this bottle and drink the entire thing in one gulp, letting out a satisfied breath of air.

    "Hurry up and go take a shower, you reek of sweat." Gong Xin Lan laughed.

    "Haha" Luo Hong Guo laughed and immediately went to get a change of clothes, headed towards the small corner that served the family for many years as a 'bathroom'.

    Gong Xin Lan laughed and looked at her two sons, "Feng, Hua, today Mom is going to make roasted meat!"

    "Roasted meat is my favorite!" Luo Hua yelled right away.

    Luo Feng also laughed. As he watched his mother put on her apron and prepare to cook dinner, Luo Feng was clear... Mom always went grocery shopping in the evening after her work, since the price for the groceries are much cheaper than the morning's. However, the groceries wouldn't be as fresh by then. Luo Feng then glanced at the bathroom, thinking "I must hurry and get the title of 'Fighter' so Mom wouldn't have to go grocery shopping during the evening and Dad wouldn't have to go work so much."

    In his heart.....

    Luo Feng has always wished for his parents to be able to take a break and enjoy the sunlight and good food in peace.

    "Feng" Luo Hong Guo walked towards Luo Feng after finishing his shower, "Dad has something to tell you."

    "What?" Luo Feng looked at his father.

    Luo Feng laughed a bit, "It's like this, Feng. I never asked you what your plans you had for after high school graduation. Could you tell me?" Luo Hong Guo rarely talked about these kinds of matters with his son because he didn't want to pressure him. He knew that his son worked very hard and has performed very well.

    Right when Luo Hong Guo said this, Gong Xin Lan's cooking movements started to slow down a bit. Luo Fengs parents really cared for their son's future.

    "Dad, I was thinking like this."

    Luo Feng added, "According to my grades, I'm sure that getting into 'Jiang-Nan's number one military academy' wouldn't be difficult. Now that I have earned the dojo's 'Elite' title, I would be raised as an officer in the military academy. Mom and Dad can enter into the family section of the military."

    There were also different tiers in the military.

    China, of course, recruited soldiers. However, regular soldiers didn't receive much. However, for a young man holding the title of 'Elite' and getting into 'Jiang-Nan's number one military academy', would have intellect and strength. The country would surely focus on such people and give their families a home.

    For the family of an officer, the conditions would be tens of hundreds of times better than this cheap, rented home.

    "Then what if you can't get in that number one military academy?" Luo Hong Guo said, "Feng, don't give yourself too much pressure."

    "There are two main military academies in Jiang-Nan city. If anything goes wrong in your exams and you are unable to get into the best academy, there is absolutely no problem with going to the second one." Luo Feng clearly understood his grades: normally, he can score around 50 points higher than the average Bachelor. For the second military academy, he only has to reach the average.

    In the tests today, there are only two types: Bachelors and Specialists. There is also only one dividing line. Those above that line are Bachelors, and those below are Specialists.

    "In the second military academy, having the title of 'Elite', I would also be nurtured as an officer. There wouldn't be too much of a difference in treatment." Luo Feng laughed.

    To become a Bachelor...

    Only two out of ten people could do it.

    However, for a high school student, only one out of a thousand people could achieve the title of 'Elite'.

    "Yup, if you got the confidence then that's great. However, Feng, don't give yourself too much pressure. Me and your mom just need a stable life, that's all." Luo Hong Guo nodded his head slightly, "This kid, just gives himself too much pressure."

    "Not at all." Luo Feng laughed, "I don't really have much pressure. Since I'm young, I just have a bit more energy and motivation."

    Luo Feng says that out loud, but in his heart: "Mom, Dad, brother, after my exams, you will soon be able to enjoy a good life. After I achieve the rank of 'Fighter', you guys won't have to live so bitterly."

    "Hurry and get the bowls and chopsticks and move the dishes onto the table. Dinner is ready!" Gong Xin Lan laughed and urged.

    "Aight." Luo Hong Guo laughed and stood up to get the bowls and chopsticks.

    "The vegetables smell great!" Luo Feng sniffed the pot and helped carry the dishes."

    "I smell the smell of roasted meat, yay~~~" Luo Hua shouted excitedly and moved his wheelchair towards the table.

    A family of four, enjoying their time.

    Volume 1 Chapter 4: Luo Feng's skill

    After dinner, Luo Feng’s mom and dad brought Luo Hua to walk outside while Luo Feng went to tutor.

    Around 6 PM, the sky was already about to become completely dark.

    "This tutoring job will have to be on hold soon." Luo Feng was like a leopard, flexibly moving through the alleys. There was a dead end in front, but Luo Feng's entire body flew in the air. He jumped over two meters high, lightly tapping the top of the wall with his left hand, and fell into the next alley.

    Sprinting was his warm up before tutoring.

    At this time, Luo Feng's speed was 15 meters per second, or 54 km/hour, which wasn't even his top speed. However, it was able to serve its purpose as warm up.

    [Light panting]

    "One more month until exams, and then I will be able to put tutoring on hold. I earned twenty thousand dollars during this half year of tutoring." Having the title of 'Elite', it was easy for him to find a tutoring job, teaching someone the basics.

    The salary was 100 dollars per hour.

    For five days a week, he taught for one hour a day. In other words, his monthly salary would be around 2000 dollars.

    "Dad works hard all day and only earns around 2-3 thousand dollars a month. I just tutor for an hour and earn so much more than him... This is the difference between a normal person and someone with a title! If I am able to become a 'Fighter', then the difference would be shocking!" Luo Feng looked ahead of him and saw a cargo truck blocking the road.

    However, Luo Feng didn't slow down at all. He suddenly jumped up to a height of 2-3 meters high and then ran two steps on the side of the wall. He then dropped back down and continued running forwards.

    After that──
    Luo Feng has already ran to the outer part of a quiet residential area.

    "Here is where Mom and Dad should be living." Luo Feng stopped and eyed the area in front of him. The density of the homes in the area was lower and there were man-made pools. There were tons of foliage and every floor of each building had its own garden, even the higher floors.

    Other than the tall residential homes, there were also villas.

    Know that──

    As of now, there are a total of six major bases in China, which are the six major cities. Each city has an astonishingly large population. For example, Jiang-Nan city's population is nearly 200 million. Naturally, there is very little land. Things like villas are very rare and expensive. The large mansions that take up even more space cost an enormous amount of money.

    "I'm going to #1801 of the 18th building" said Luo Feng to the guardsman outside the area.

    "Wait a moment" The guardsman pressed a video-telephone number and shot the camera at Luo Feng. A voice from the video-telephone said, "It's Feng, let him in"

    "Alright sir" The guardsman let him in.

    ......

    One hour later, Feng walked out the area.

    "Yup, done with tutoring. Now I'll go to the dojo and see if there has been any increase in my strength."

    ※※※※※※
    The 'Dojo of Limits', the largest dojo on earth created by the strongest fighter 'Hong'.

    There are dojos scattered all around the world.

    [Di]

    Luo Feng entered the dojo after scanning his student identification card at the door.

    One 'Dojo of Limits' is like an entrenched gigantic monster: the area it covers is even larger than a high school. The main gate of the dojo is big enough to let ten cars in. Inside the dojo, there were three large silver-white structures with an airship-like style.

    "Brother!*"

    *This brother is one used in respect, not blood related. All the "brothers" for the rest of the chapter will be like this too.

    "Greetings Brother"

    On the lawn of the interior of the Dojo were large amounts of dojo members. These members saw Luo Feng's 'Elite' identification on his chest and respected him.

    Inside the dojo, the three structures were separated by level: one for the beginner members, one for the intermediate members, and one for the elite members.

    The elite member building's first and second floors are large teaching halls, large enough to hold a few thousand people. The teachers of the dojo taught in this hall. There were around 30-40 thousand members of this particular dojo.

    You can only become a member of the dojo starting from the age of 16. After the age of 30, you are prohibited from coming back to the dojo, since you will be wasting valuable teaching resources.

    There were a couple hundred 'elite' students, most being around 20 years old.

    However, Luo Feng was only 18.

    "Greetings Brother"

    Luo Feng walked along as he heard people greet him. He entered the third floor of the elite building, which only elite members could enter.

    The third floor was a couple hundred meters long and wide; a large training center. At this time, there were a couple dozen people.

    "Crazy*"

    *Not the "mad" kind of crazy. This is just a nickname incorporating the Feng of Luo Feng (crazy = Feng Zi)

    "Hey, come Crazy."

    As he entered the large training center, all of the 'elite' members warmly greeted him.

    "Brother Wang, Brother Yang, Sister Li" Luo Feng happily shouted back. As he looked at these people, his heart warmed. These few dozen people were all over 20 years of age. Of course, the elite members of the 'Dojo of Limits' of Zhi An section weren't just these people. In total, there were over a hundred of them, but most of them were too lazy to come since there isn't a teacher to teach.

    The only people who would come to the training center are those who are poor and without anywhere else to train.

    The rich people all have their own individual training center.

    So──


    Almost all of these people live in cheap rental homes. Since they are all categorized as poor people, they naturally formed a clique. Luo Feng's nickname of 'Crazy' came from the time when he consecutively challenged and defeated three rich elite members out of anger.

    "I wonder how much my strength improved from the last half month of training."

    Luo Feng walked towards the 'Fist Strength Tester Machine' at the corner of the training hall, where there were two of them side by side. Whether you were a beginner, intermediate, or an elite member, you had to test the strength of your punch. Even the test to become a 'Fighter' has strength* tests.

    *All strength tests refer to fist strength.

    Luo Feng took in a deep breath and completely relaxed his body. Suddenly, his gaze concentrated. His body tensed, like a lazy lion getting ready for action. His spine tensed like a bow string. His feet supported his waist, which strengthened Luo Feng's right fist. His punch was like a cannonball, shooting across an arc──

    [DA]

    Luo Feng's fist smashed against the machine.

    The machine shook violently.

    Soon enough, a number appeared on the machine's screen── “809 kg”

    "Not bad, crazy. Got past the 800 kg milestone" A man with a height taller than 1.9 meters who was a bit lean yet buff laughed and clapped. This buff man had a savage scar on his face.

    "Brother Yang" Luo Feng laughed, "when compared to you, this is nothing. Brother Yang, could you help me turn on the 'Speed Tester Machine'?"

    "Brother Yang, named Yang Wu, is currently ranked top three within the elite members in the 'Dojo of Limits'. If it wasn't for his speed, he would've cleared the 'Fighter Preliminary Exams' a long time ago.

    For an elite member to become a fighter.

    He has to pass two exams──

    The first exam is the 'Fighter Fitness' exam, or the Prospective Fighter exam. Once you pass that, you have proved that your fitness level has reached the standard of a 'fighter'. At this time, you have become a 'Prospective Fighter'.

    The second exam is a 'Fighter Combat' exam.

    Just having the body fitness doesn't grant you the privilege of becoming a fighter. Only by defeating an actual monster in an actual fight will you be able to achieve the title of 'Fighter'.

    "Testing speed? Alright." Yang Wu laughed as he walked towards the machine and turned it on.

    [KA]

    The machine turned on and lighted up.

    Luo Feng adjusted his breathing and stood on the track, which was 60 meters long. Close to the speed testing machine was a speed testing region.

    Luo Feng exploded forwards!

    [WHOOSH]

    In a blink of an eye, Luo Feng has accelerated to his maximum speed. His feet pedaled with strength, increasing his sprinting power. His body was like an arrow leaving a bow and flying across the runway, bringing along with him a gust of wind. Luo Feng flew past the speed testing region. After that, he naturally slowed down and stopped.

    "How fast?" Luo Feng laughed as he walked towards the machine.

    "Heh, crazy, looks like you improved a bit since last time. Not bad, not bad" Brother Yang, with a face of astonishment, looked at the number displayed on the speed testing machine, "Come look for yourself"

    Luo Feng looked over to the machine and the number displayed was── “23.8 m/s”

    "Not bad"

    Luo feng wasn't that happy though, since there were three parts to the Fighter Fitness exam, or the 'Prospective Fighter' exam: Strength, speed, and reaction speed. For reaction speed, Luo Feng was naturally gifted and has barely reached the level that a fighter requires.

    However──

    In the prospective fighter exam, the passing mark for strength is ── 900 kg!

    For speed, the passing mark is── 25 m/s! Or 100 meters every 4 seconds.

    Tnx Mathew1122, great translation!!
    Excited to continue reading.

    I'm surprised the requirements for 'Fighter' is so low, considering the amount of Power/Speed that beasts like that Black Crowned Eagle can display. How would someone who can run at only 25m/s (probably a low-level Fighter) hope to match the speed of a bird like that, not to mention its other characteristics?
