½ Prince Volume 9: Sequel
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Chapter 5: Wicked, Part One – translated by Lily and lucathia
My real name is Zhuo Ling Bin, but in Second Life, I go by Wicked.
Second Life is a virtual game developed more than ten years ago. However, due to overdeveloped artificial intelligence, the game spiraled out of control. Since then, the government has explicitly limited the artificial intelligence level in games. In other words, Second Life, also called the Forbidden Game, is still the world’s most immersive game, especially since nearly half of the NPCs developed self-awareness. If not for the Dictator of Life’s aid in overseeing this place, I have no idea what sort of devastating consequences this game would have resulted in.
Although in reality, this game has already had dire repercussions. More than ten years ago, the developer of Second Life, Long Dian, contracted a terminal illness. Terrified of the idea of death, he even used the world’s most intelligent computer, the Dictator of Life, to threaten the entire world!
That particular event had huge consequences, including making Second Life spiral out of control forever, turning it into a world of only NPCs. However, the biggest consequence to me was that I lost my most precious person.
Feng Lan, my Xiao Lan, was Prince, the person who led everyone to stop Long Dian at that time.
