OPTM-Chapter 60 Survival Part 1

Previous ChapterNext Chapter

After the Scientists took action, the cause of the fault was quickly found. It was indeed the insufficient power supply of the Scientific Force Base’s generator. 

However, Caesar was also at fault in this situation. In order to become number one, he got greedy and he sent the finished product to Marine Headquarters without carefully preparing the safety locks for the device for emergency situations like this. 

At the moment when the power was cut off, the chaotic current inside the Device was forced to reach its peak value. If it wasn’t for the fact that Trane was physically strong then he would have been seriously injured!

So the matter was handed over to Gorōsei (Five Elder Stars).

After all, their side took most of the Devices and the CP organization would be hit the hardest if there is an accident. 

Then before waiting for Gorōsei (Five Elder Stars) to give any kind of order, Caesar-Clown was ordered to remain in this base and he would only be able to come out when he perfect the design for the Device and all then safety measures.

“Thank you for this time, Mr. Rowen, if it weren’t for you…”

At the entrance of Scientific Force Base, after being reprimanded by Kizaru for almost killing someone with his Device, Caesar wiped the sweat on his forehead and ran over towards him.

If Rowen hadn’t said that the cause of the accident was “Insufficient Power Supply” then even if it was found that he wasn’t the main fault and the Gorōsei (Five Elder Stars) wouldn’t have punished him severely but the group of Vice-Admirals surrounding him who were waiting to grow stronger would have torn him apart! 

He would have been torn apart alive!!

What would he be able to do then?

That almost scared him to death!

So Caesar expressed his sincere gratitude to Rowen. After all, apart from his personality issues, Caesar deserves his status as the “World’s Second Greatest” Scientist.

“You’re welcome, Dr. Caesar. After all, this matter also has my negligence in it. I am the original developer of the Thunder-Lightning Stimulation Method but I didn’t even consider how Non-Rumble-Rumble Fruit Ability users would be able to supply high current on their bodies. I am really ashamed!”

Rowen said with a smile, exposing Caesar’s mistake lightly, and then saying goodbye with a smile on his face.

Caesar watched Rowen walk away, and then he suddenly shuddered as his expression became agitated.

That’s right!

Why am I so stupid?

The original developer of the Thunder-Lightning Stimulation Method was in front of his eyes!

With his help, this project would become inherently invincible!


The other party is also the Rumble-Rumble Fruit Ability user!! He is the user of Rumble-Rumble Fruit Ability which had disappeared for hundreds of years! ! Vegapunk lamented about the Pacifista Project and was full of regret as he couldn’t add the ability of the Rumble-Rumble Fruit in them!!

If one applies Rowen’s ability to weapons through the Lineage Factor first, wouldn’t that mean……


Suddenly, the look in Caesar’s eyes sharpened and he tried to chase after Rowen. But just as he was going to move, Kizaru appeared beside him, stopping him just before he was about to step out the door.

“Dr. Caesar, where do you think you are going?”

Cold sweat instantly drenched his body as Caesar lowered his head and laughed dryly, “Nothing, it’s nothing …… I’m going to modify the Device!”

After saying that, Caesar’s figure turned into a cloud of smoke and disappeared in the corner of the corridor.

“There better not be a second accident, Caesar, or I’ll stuff you into the Device testing myself!”

Kizaru muttered to himself in a low voice as he watched Caeser’s figure disappearing around the corner.

As a Logia Gas-Gas Fruit Ability user, Caesar can transform his body into Gas by using his Devil Fruit. As for the main property of Gas, even ordinary people know that it is easy to ignite and detonate not to mention that he is the Scientific Force Base Commander-in-Chief.

If Caesar is plugged into the Device for testing then the current and high temperature will continuously ignite him and burn his body repeatedly.

Under the premise of him not being able to die due to the Logia Elementalization, the pain Caesar would go through would be a hundred times more than any ordinary person who is also going through the same process!

The next day, Headquarters Recruit Camp.

Just after a day of exercise, Rowen was called to the office by Zephyr.

Knock Knock Knock.

“Come in……”

Receiving a response, Rowen pushed the door and walked in: “You wanted to see me,  Zephyr-Sensei?”

“That’s right, sit down, we need to talk!”

Zephyr’s prosthetic leg was taken off and put aside, as the weather turned warmer, the wooden prosthetic leg was only getting warmer in the hand, so in private space, Zephyr would not normally wear the prosthetic leg. 

Rowen’s gaze paused for a moment as he looked at the shiny prosthetic leg and he wanted to touch it with his hand but he stopped himself and said: “Older people like you should smoke less or it would hurt.”

Zephyr’s movement paused for a moment as he processed Rowen’s word before he shouted angrily: “This old man is very healthy! You don’t have to worry about it!”

Zephyr then took a piece from his table and threw it at Rowen.

“Take a look at it and sign it without speaking your usual nonsense!”

Zephyr wasn’t polite in his scoldings but he still silently put down his half-smoked cigar. Then he saw Rowen holding the piece of paper and repeatedly rubbed it like a lunatic, and suddenly a fire came alive on the paper: “What the hell are you doing?!!!”

“No… nothing!”

Rowen shrank his neck and breathed out a sigh of relief.

There is another piece of paper like the previous time.

A few minutes later, Rowen finished reading the piece of paper and tapped his fingers on the table, lost in thought. This is not an important thing, it is just a qualification certificate for transferring him to Hell Island to participate in the survival training.

Whether Hell Island was dangerous or not was another matter, Rowen was more concerned about something else.

“If I come back from the Hell Island after surviving for three months then I will be qualified to leave the camp, right?”

Commander-in-Chief Zephyr’s Recruit Camp did not have a graduation assessment, which is something only for the group of kids in the Headquarters Military Academy. 

If the members of the Recruit Camp want to become a Qualified Officer, then they would have to undergo survival training in the Hell Island, and they would have to live on the Hell Island for three months without any supplies.
