Ultimate Scheming System Chapter 101

"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 50 act tough points!"

"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for successfully acting tough. The reward is 60 act tough points!"

"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for eating ‘Smelly Tofu’, soul strength increased by 1%."

"Ding! After validation, host ‘Xu Que’ has successfully cooked ‘Smelly Tofu’ into a One Star Cuisine."

"Ding! Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for automatically discovering the Secondary Occupation: ‘Chef’. Rewarded with Secondary Occupation Giant gift bag x 1!"


Xu Que became stunned. This chain of system messages made him confused.

It mentioned raising of the soul strength and also something about One Star Cuisine. And another one mentioned Secondary Occupation: "Chef"?

What are all these?

He regained his focus and kept the bowl of Smelly Tofu back into the System Deposit Storage. He started to check out its properties and became astounded.


One Star Cuisine, cooked by host ‘Xu Que’, effective for 3 days.

Effect: Can replenish hunger and increase soul strength by 1% (Effect works only once per day).

"What the hell? I just casually cooked some Smelly Tofu and it had such a use to it!" Xu Que was elated.

Although he actually did put in effort for the Smelly Tofu, making use of various sauces, cutting onions and whatnot, along with that jade bowl, they made the Smelly Tofu dish taste even better.

Although it was only One Star and its effects were nothing extraordinary. No matter how many pieces he ate everyday, it could only increase the soul strength once.

But, this allowed Xu Que to discover something new.

Although this One Star Cuisine’s effects were nothing out of the ordinary, if he managed to make a Three Star or a Four Star delicacy, or even make a higher rank of cuisines, their effects would be extraordinary!

"Oh yes! And for that Secondary Occupation Giant Gift Bag… hahaha! System, let me open and see what’s inside!" Filled with anticipation, Xu Que entered the system inventory and stared at that big, red gift bag.

A "swish" sounded.

The system interface streaked past various rays of light and several items appeared in his inventory.

"Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acquiring the ‘One Star Chef’ Occupation Skill Book. After using, host will be able to cook One Star Cuisines with 100% probability!"

"Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acquiring the ‘One Star Musician’ Occupation Skill Book. After using, host will be able to perform One Star Music Scores with 100% probability!"

"Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acquiring the ‘One Star Medicine Refiner’ Occupation Skill Book. After using, host will be able to refine One Star Medicines with 100% probability!"

"Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acquiring the ‘One Star Equipment Refiner’ Occupation Skill Book. After using, host will be able to refine One Star Equipments with 100% probability!"

"Congratulations to host ‘Xu Que’ for acquiring the ‘One Star Amulet Maker’ Occupation Skill Book. After using, host will be able to create One Star Amulets with 100% probability!"

"Damn… I’ve earn it big this time!" Xu Que opened his mouth wide. He did not expect a fortune to fall upon him so suddenly.

Opening the big gift bag, he received so many Occupation Skill Books in one go.

It was not that the system store did not sell these Occupation Skill Books, but it was that they were too expensive. A simple One Star Occupation Skill Book costed 500 act tough points.

And yet, Xu Que had suddenly acquired five different Occupation Skill Books at one go. It was equivalent to saving 2500 act tough points. Moreover, he was able to learn the skills of these five Occupations. It seems like his luck was bursting!

"Use it, use it all!" Xu Que shouted with excitement.

In a flash, the five Occupation Skill Books were consumed. A tremendously loud system beep then sounded in Xu Que’s head.

Soon after, when he opened his eyes, he had already learnt the five new skills. The skills seemed familiar to him as if he was born with them.

The usage of the Chef skill was obvious. It was to cook Cuisines with attribute bonuses attached.

However, the Musician occupation was quite shocking. It allowed one to be an expert in many types of ancient musical instruments. For example, the Ocarina, Fou, Five-string Lute, Pan pipes, Chinese harp, Gu Zheng, Gu Qin and more. Also, the music being played from the scores had a direct impact on the moods of others. It could even entirely control the opposition’s rationality and thinking.

These were definitely very useful. On top of that, all of the Occupation Skills were essential for acting tough!

Xu Que felt at ease. With a brilliant smile, he felt that this world is wonderful. Everywhere was filled with opportunities to act tough!

Yet, outside the tower, the Cultivators were stunned after witnessing the scene.

"Oh my God!"

"Take a look at him. After he ate the poop, he’s laughing so happily."

"How scary!"

"Crazy! This lad is definitely crazy!"

"No. I feel that he is really gutsy and fierce. Terrifying! He is fierce to the point where he even eats poop just to prove a point!"

"Urgh, I can’t take it anymore… ughhh!"

Suddenly, a few Cultivators outside could not take it anymore and started leaning over and retching on the spot.

Xu Que witnessed this and without any expression, he stared at them, "Those of you who puke better not run, I will personally feed you real shit later."

"..." The few Cultivators, who were still puking, changed their expressions. They turned and cupped their hands, "Everyone, we have something to do, we shall take our leave first!"

They quickly turned and rode off with their flying swords.

Xu Que let out a cold sigh and did not bother to chase them down.

He lowered his head and looked at the few remaining Smelly Tofu in the oil pan. He suddenly let out a slight grin as if something just came to his mind.

He looked at the people below and laughed, "All my friends, do you want to know how I improved my soul strength so quickly?"

Everybody could not help but stare at him shockingly.

This black robed young man had a breakthrough with his soul strength at the very last moment. The progress was extremely quick which would frighten anyone.

One of them could not take it, cupped his hands and replied, "I would like to know!"

Xu Que stretched out his hand and pointed at the Smelly Tofus in the oil pan and said while laughing, "It’s because the stuff that I just ate is no ordinary food. This Smelly Tofu is exclusive only to my Heaven Explosion Faction and its effects are comparable to One Star Empty Sky Pills. When you eat it, it can increase your soul strength immediately."

Everybody moved the corner of their lips.

"Friend, stop kidding around."

"We won’t fall for your tricks."

"You are obviously tricking us into eating ‘poop’!"

"No, he actually knows about the Empty Sky Pill. That pill had been lost in history for a very long time!"

"That’s right. I’ve once read in an ancient text that the Empty Sky Pill was a type of medicine which could increase one’s soul strength but it has been lost for thousands of years!"

"Could it be that… what he said was the truth?"

Some of them became suspicious and stared at the pan of Smelly Tofus at the third level, contemplating. Some of them shook their heads profusely and would not believe Xu Que’s words under any circumstances.

Without speaking further, he immediately carried the pan and went down to the first level. He said, "Everybody, count this as a present from the Heaven Explosion Faction. After you try it and get the effects, do help me spread the great name of my faction! As for daring enough to try it out or not, it’s up to you guys!"

"Yum!" Finishing, he picked up another piece of Smelly Tofu from the oil pan, slipped it into his mouth and swallowed it. His face was filled with satisfaction.

Soon after under the startled expressions of everyone, Xu Que turned and left as he decided to take a walk up the higher levels of the tower.

Because ever since he had increased his soul strength, he had this strange feeling that at the eighth level, someone was there!
