Date- 3 April 2321
Location- Sky Blossom City, Guild Association Mall, Warehouse no.234, Card Lab
Dream body refining was an incredible ability that allowed the Ocean dream turtle monster to live a prolonged life even without having to come out of its shell. This ability was going to be one of the cornerstone abilities in the creation of Asong’s origin card. After adding the soul pathways of the five dream abilities that I extracted from the Ocean dream turtle monster to the modified soul pathways of Asong’s fate ingredients while making sure that it will not have any negative effect on the integrity of the modified soul pathways of the fate ingredient in the origin core.
Now that I was done transferring the soul pathways of the selected card ingredients to the origin core and had modified the soul pathway of Asong’s fate ingredient according to my predetermined plan for Asong’s origin card, I turned to look at Asong who was meditating, and asked, “Asong do you mind if I were to use the extra soul pathways form card ingredients used in the creation of other cards?”
Hearing my request, Asong opened her eyes to look at me in disbelief, “…”
I swear to god I could read Asong’s expression was yelling, ‘Are you kidding me right now?’
“Normally I don’t ask something so unreasonable to my clients but the ingredients used in your origin card creation are very rare and I feel like it would a be waste if we do not use these extra soul pathways, therefore I could resist but ask,” I explained myself to Asong while scratching the back of my head in embarrassment.
“As long as it does not affect my card creation, please do as you see fit.” after giving it a thought Asong nodded and answered me before returning to her meditation. She didn’t even bother to ask me how far I was done, whether everything was going as planned, not one question about her origin card. If I didn’t know better than I would think that Asong did not care for her origin card.
“Thank you,” I thanked Asong for permitting me to utilize the unused soul pathways of card ingredients.
I know as a card creationist I should be embarrassed to ask something like this to my client in the middle of the card creation but I couldn’t resist the temptation of ability such as the space collapse. If I were to use it properly I would be able to get my hands on an overpowered B-rank card.
Now that I had gotten the permission of the client, I took out a common core and transferred the soul pathways belonging to the ability Space Collapse into the common core and kept it aside. I could have opted to turn the core into a card and I would have successfully created a B-rank space collapse card but I didn’t choose to because at my create strength a B-rank skill card was of very little use to me, therefore I decided to get additional ingredients to enhance the power of the space collapse ability so that it could be a good addition to my arsenal.
Putting aside the common core containing the soul pathways of the soul collapse ability, I returned to the creation of Asong’s origin card. Now all the elements were set all I had to frame it into the origin card I imagined for Asong. But before that, I had to make some changes to the soul pathway of the modified fate ingredient. I planned to make it into a variant viltronain to increase the durability, defense, and strength of the origin card I was creating for Asong. Viltronian core had become a signature for all the origin cards created by me.
Like all the other origin cards I had created Asong’s origin card would also get a viltronian core but it was going to act a very special role in Asong’s origin card. Which will help Asong display the trick of immortality displayed by the clearwater oyster monster.
I did this because Asong’s origin card was going to be a support item card. I know Asong asked me not to create a shield-type origin card and I wasn’t going to but her origin card was going to be an item card. By support item card I mean a life support item that would help Asong in recovery, practicing soul energy, and various other aspects that a card apprentice would need.
The origin card I was going to create for Asong was something that was considered a fantasy back on earth, a combination of a life pod and a VR game pod. Thanks to the space and dream abilities provided by the card ingredients turning Asong’s fate ingredient into a lifepod/VRpod origin card was not impossible.
Lifepod/VRpod in the sense the origin card was going to be in such a way that while her physical body rested and recovered in the life pod her soul body could do whatever it wanted to like in a VRpod while being totally aware of the situation surrounding her.
I planned something like this for Asong’s origin card because Asong was not a regular card apprentice she did not need strength she had 10 semi-demigod bodyguards, what she lacked was proper health care and cultivation environment but most importantly of all a strong defensive method that would help her buy time in case of an assassination attempt on her life until her 10 semi-demigod bodyguards came to her rescue.
I knew despite her health issue Asong’s cause of death would not be because of her clogged soul pathways but by the hands of the assassins sent by the supreme leader of the circle. Therefore knowing this I made sure that the origin card I was creating for Asong would not only be a cure for her health condition but a tough defense for her to hold on to for her rescuers. I would be kidding myself if I thought I could create an origin card for a card soldier with the ability to withstand the attack of a card emperor or a card semi-demigod whoever the supreme leader of the circle sent to assassinate Asong. Therefore I could only hope that the immortality trick I incorporated in Asong’s origin card could confuse Asong’s assassins enough for her to buy some time to be rescued.
