The Entire Interstellar is Watching What I Eat - Chapter 1.2
The system was stunned as it hadn’t expected Ji He to do such a thing at all. By the time it came back to its senses, Ji He had already taken out a rope from his backpack and bound the opponent’s hands.
[Master, what are you…?]
Ji He didn’t answer the system’s question. He tied the man up and put them aside, ‘Can you show me the map you just mentioned?’
The system didn’t expect Ji He to adapt so well. Not only was he ruthless, but there were no superfluous words. Instead when approached by a veteran contestant he didn’t hesitate to knock him out and tie him up. The system cleverly projected the map that Ji He needed.
[Master, you can also set landmarks on this map. I will give you navigation at that time. You don’t need to look at the map when you walk.]
Ji He quickly checked the map given by the system. The map in front of him was a simple map. Fortunately, Ji He hadn’t expected the system to give him anything good. He quickly specified a spot and said, ‘System, how far are we from that river?’
[A total of thirty kilometers!]
Thirty kilometers would mean at least eight hours of walking. He already wasted four hours as soon as he came in, if he were to add eight hours on the road even if he were made of steel he would die on the road, right?
‘Is there a nearby water source?’
Ji He looked at the map for a while, but couldn’t find any other places other than the marked river where there might be water sources, so he figured he may as well ask the system.
The system lit up a location on the map, [There is a small stream here, about five kilometers from the master’s current location.]
The mark given by the system showed on the map that it was in another forest not far from the forest they were currently in. The five kilometers distance quoted wasn’t too bad. Ji He made a decision to also help the person tied up on the ground.
When the system responded, the map in front of him slowly faded, and a faint light stretched out under Ji He’s feet. Ji He carried the person who was knocked out by him and walked forward along the cursor under his feet.
The system didn’t quite understand it, and asked with a little doubt: “Master, why do you want to bring him?”
“I still have questions to figure out.”
Fortunately, the person was thin and so wasn’t very heavy. Although Ji He wasn’t as fast as he would be if he were walking alone, he didn’t lose much speed. After walking for about fifteen minutes, Ji He had carried the person to the edge of the forest.
This time, another forest marked on the map appeared in front of Ji He’s eyes. Surprisingly, the other forest was actually a bamboo forest.
Ji He carried the man into the woods for a while before throwing the man on the ground. The man let out a muffled groan and woke up leisurely.
“You! Who are you!”
Ji He was silent for a while. It turned out that these people didn’t know who the newcomer was.
Seeing that Ji He was silent, the other party thought of where he was knocked unconscious, and quickly explained: “Brother, look at me, I’m not the newcomer, I’m also looking for the newcomer.”
The man struggled to get up, “Brother, that newcomer is probably still in the safe house. Let’s call him out together! We’ll split the nutrient solution four to six… No no no, two to eight, you eight!”
Ji He held the stick against the person who was struggling to get up, and spit out an astonishing message with an expressionless face, “I am the newcomer.”
“I have a few questions to ask you. If you answer well, I will give you nutrient solution.”
Wang Xuan nodded with a gray face. He didn’t expect that when he went to catch the new player, he would be caught by the new player instead. Seeing that the new player made such a heavy move right from the start, Wang Xuan felt that this person should be more terrifying than those old players.
Ji He sorted out the information he knew through the system. He was now on a show called “Open Globe Survival”. Just like the name of the show indicated, this show was mainly to see how players who were put into the game survived here.
At the beginning of the show, there were more than one hundred people, all of whom were criminals from Star Prison. They fought each other on the show, and later there were only fifty or sixty people left. The program group decided to randomly put players into the program every once in a while so that the number of players would always be around one hundred.
Apart from this, Ji He doesn’t know anything. His system is too rotten and many things are unclear. Some of his questions have even elicited the response that the topic cannot be touched upon yet and cannot be explained. There was no other way. He had to understand what was going on now, so Ji He could only shake down the information from old players.
“How is the nutrient solution distributed? Is it brought only by newcomers?”
Wang Xuan was a little surprised by Ji He’s question, but answered honestly, “Every fifteen days, the organizer will distribute nutrient solution based on the number of live broadcast views of each player. If you can do this kind of thing from the beginning, your viewer count must be pretty high.”
[Ding- completing the answer:]
[Increasing the number of views can be done by killing players and robbing players. If you successfully survive for thirty days in the “Open Globe Survival” show, the organizer will add an extra nutrient solution each time they are distributed.]
[The nutrient solution provided is a low-level nutrient solution, which both provides all of the nutrients needed by the human body and will help maintain a functional level of satiety for one day.]
[A man cannot live without water, but he can live without nutrient solution.]
The sudden voice of the system startled Ji He, but he composed himself quickly. After thinking about it, he continued on to ask: “I saw that you were the last to enter, why didn’t you go with them?”
“Don’t be fooled by them!” Wang Xuan’s tone was a little anxious, as if he was thinking of Ji He, and hurriedly said to him, “They’ll lie to these newcomers about forming a team, but really they’re just scamming to get their nutrient solution! If you’re lucky the team will just leave the newcomer in the forest, and whether they can live depends on whether they’re tough or not.”
“The last time I saw a newcomer, he starved to death in the forest.”
Starving to death in the forest? Ji He couldn’t believe it. He just walked out of the forest with Wang Xuan. There were a lot of berries in the forest. How could he not hold out by eating berries until the nutrient solution was distributed fifteen days later?
Ji He thought it and asked as such, but Wang Xuan looked at Ji He with a look of fear: “Those berries are poisonous, and there isn’t a single edible plant issued by the Star Alliance on this planet. Some people were too hungry to eat berries before, but they all died.”
[Ding- Task Triggered]
[Distinguish Edible Plants: 0/10]
Um? Is this the task that the system said it would release before? Sure enough it’s not a good system, and the rewards can’t be announced.
After coming out of the woods, the leaves covering the sky were gone, and the sky could still be seen through the gaps in the bamboo. Wang Xuan looked at the sky, “Brother, let’s hurry up and find a place to settle. It’s getting dark now, and there will be a lot of wild bothering us.”
“Beasts? Then how do you usually go about it?”
“Look for a tree. Those beasts can’t climb the trees. I’ve also seen other gangs make a fire before. Those beasts won’t approach because they’re afraid of fire, but I can’t make a fire… Let’s hurry up and find a tree.”
[Ding- Task Triggered]
[Catch Small Animals: 0/10]
Climbing a tree would be in the opposite direction of Ji He’s destination. He thought for a while and said to Wang Xuan, “I’m going to the bamboo forest. There are two options. First one is I’ll give you a nutrient solution and you can go back to the woods. The second is you come with me, I’ll give you five, and even more nutrient solution after that might be given to you.”
With these two conditions placed in front of Wang Xuan, even a fool would know what to choose. Of course Wang Xuan chose to follow Ji He.

1: Distinguish Edible Plants: 0/10
2: Catch Small Animals: 0/10
You may see the MC call the system “Tem”. In raws he just shortens the two character word for system (系统) down to the second character these several times. It you support the author by reading the raws it may also be translated as Tong (统), but to keep with the joke/theme I likened it to the english second half of sysTEM.
