Chapter 277: Center of the Crowd
“This…… Ah, the legendary Seal Runes and Spatial Imprisonment! I didn’t expect to see these things that were talked about in legends in my lifetime.”
Cain was so excited that he started to pull on his white beard. He shivered as he rubbed the yellow walls with his wrinkled hands. He then turned around and explained everything to Fei. The silver energies that were floating on the walls were ancient characters; they were known as the runes of gods, and they had unbelievable powers that could fix something in space and time. This secret room was probably somewhere in the void, and it only existed in the void because of the power of the silver runes.
Although he didn’t know about this unimaginable power, it wasn’t far from his estimations. All of the walls that flashed the yellow light weren’t real structures made of soil or natural material; they were an energy that was transformed into the shape of walls.
“Too bad, the application of these techniques are just too complex. In addition, the runes are floating on the wall and don’t show their complete form.”
Oldman Cain sighed. From his current skill level, he wasn’t able to completely copy them. By just looking at the flashing silver runes, he was still not able to replicate the core and essence of the Seal Runes and Spatial Imprisonment. Only time would help him with the study.
If one could understand and grasp the godly runes, then opening up some space in the void and creating a castle would be no longer unthinkable.
Didn’t matter if it was Diablo World or Azeroth Continent, there were legends and stories where gods created space and lives. Those things really wasn’t imaginable for the average person.
“We can slowly study these silver runes. This secret room won’t disappear.”
Fei found it funny seeing the Oldman Cain acting like a kid who wanted his favorite toys. He laughed as he set up teleport portals for both Akara and Cain to get here from Rogue Encampment.
This way, they were able to come to this secret room every day for a certain amount of time. Just like how they taught classes at the university in the [City of Heroes] at the back mountain of Chambord, they could come here to study. With Fe’s current spiritual power, the two of them could only stay in places other than Diablo World for four hours and twenty minutes every day. This upper limit couldn’t be changed, so they needed to allocate their time efficiently.
Akara was still staring at the book [Demon King’s Wisdom] that was floating in the air.
“God, this is an unbelievable book. This is like a cyclopedia for all warrior and mages. There is so much knowledge recorded in the book; vast like the ocean. Also, there are a lot of impressive methods on record……. Wisdom, this book is really worthy enough to be called the wisdom. I don’t know why it would be called the [Demon King’s Wisdom]; I think it should be called [God’s Wisdom]!”
In a short time, the priestess had gone through 80% of the content in the book.
She wasn’t like Fei who just picked up the ancient language. As someone who mastered the ancient text of Diablo World, she really loved studying these ancient matters. In addition, there was a bit of connection between Diablo World and Azeroth Continent. Other than the theories behind the magic spells and warrior techniques, there were connections between ancient texts. Therefore, the priestess could roughly understand most of the content in the book.
Finally, Cain also moved his eyes off of the yellow walls.
However, the old man wasn’t too interested in subjects such as architecture, mechanisms, weapon and armor creation, metal mining. Instead. He focused on the stone lanterns and the stone chains that locked [Demon King’s Wisdom] in place.
“Oh god, It is a miracle……” Cain caressed the rough stone chains as he stared at the runes that were flashing on the surface of the stone lanterns. His body shivered as he said: “Ahhhh, these are Micro Imprisonment Runes. Ahaha, these runes actually exist? The legends are real……”
Since the old man acted as if he had gone mad, Fei knew he won’t be able to get any detailed information from Cain.
Every time Cain fell into that state of mind, his speech would be confusing and irrational. Except for his brain that was able to work under this workaholic condition, his communication skills would fell to the level of an infant.
After thinking of this, Fei took out the gate to the underground hall as well as the nine mysterious symbols that he stole. He placed them in this room for the two people to study, and he turned around and left.
“Aha, such things are real!”
Before Fei got teleported out, he was still hearing the gasps and shouts of the two “mad scientists”’.
After Fei got back into Diablo World, he thought for a while and summoned Elena. They entered the Third Map [Kurast Docks] to level up.
Before this, Fei had already finished the first quest [The Golden Bird] of the third map.
The reward for completing that quest was a magic potion that could permanently increase the health by 20 points. Fei didn’t use it immediately; he kept it in his storage space.
His Barbarian Character, Assassin Character, Sorceress Character, Paladin Character, Druid Character, Necromancer Character, and Amazon Character were now level 45, 39, 41, 39, 39, 37, and 40, respectively. Except for the Necromancer and Amazon Characters, all other five character had completed all quests at [Lut Gholein]. After these two last characters pass the second map, all seven of Fei’s characters would have cleared the second stage.
However, since the situation at Zenit was chaotic and dangerous, and powerful opponents appeared one after another, Fei needed to improve his strength quick. He had changed his level-up strategy; he ditched the plan of balancing the power levels of all of his characters and going for that uncertain reward for clearing the second stage. Instead, he focused his time on advancing his Barbarian Character and becoming a Moon-Class Elite Warrior.
After completing the second quest in [Kurast Docks], the Barbarian was now level 46.
Elena also got stronger. She was level 40 and mastered all four elemental magic arrows. In addition, the coordination between her and Fei got smoother. As they fought with the demons and monsters, they would know what each other was thinking of as long as they saw each other’s eyes or initial movements. With this level of connection, it felt like they were being controlled by the same person.
The feelings between them were also transforming.
Since the stone room incident in Chambord, their relationship didn’t progress. However, Fei was able to sense that the [Flower of Rogue] that was beautiful and valiant was no longer positioning herself as Fei’s unimportant servant. Fei could feel the passion and love inside Elena’s heart. Their relationship now was intimate and lovely.
During breaks from fighting, Fei would hold onto Elena’s soft and smooth hands. Although it wasn’t like long walks on the beach, it was very similar as they walked on the road of blood with corpses of monsters on the sides.
The time limit for the day was up, and both of them left Diablo World.
“Everything is normal. Nothing is irregular, and the cavaliers of the Imperial Knight Palace didn’t reappear as well.”
When Fei returned, his personal guard Torres walked up and reported on what happened in the last four hours. Everything was just like Fei predicted. After the event that took place in the morning, the Imperial Knight Palace quieted down and didn’t proceed with a revenge.
After that, Fei took a walk in the camp area. Because the searching for the assassins of Spartax Empire finished, the members of the affiliated kingdoms were allowed to walk within the camp area normally. At the same time, Emperor Yassin ordered all affiliated kingdoms to get ready; the Imperial Military Practice was going to start in two days.
Finally, everyone’s attention was placed back onto the competition.
Fei sent away his guards and wandered around in the camp area. He soon walked near the Byzantine Kingdom. The campsite of this kingdom that was quiet in the past was now crowded and noisy. Everyone knew that the young king of Byzantine was supported by the King of Chambord, and a lot of the emissaries and ministers of other forces and kingdoms tried to establish a good relationship with Byzantine since they were afraid of going to Chambord directly; they all wanted to get some benefits in the upcoming competition.
Seeing this from afar, Fei smiled as he knew this young king had grasped the opportunity. The young king of Byzantine was definitely the center of the crowd. He was confident and chatting with all the visitors friendly; he was no longer timid and afraid.
However, Fei didn’t walk up; he turned around and left instead.
For the last hour, he felt strange; he felt like someone was following him and observing him. But didn’t matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t find this person.
