It turned out that Seckred also was also known as the “Sacred Mountain”, but the information in this “world” was much simpler than others. There were only introductions of some special flora and fauna.
Blast bird: Mutated bird with a quick temper; strong feelings of likes and dislikes; toxic beak and claws; has self-explosion attribute.
Gargoyle: Ancient alchemy product with flying ability; some mutated ones have independent thinking; strong defense; immune to spiritual magic; halves magic damage.
Manticore: Mutated demonic beast with a lion’s body and a scorpion’s tail; moves fast. The claws are highly poisonous which can paralyze the enemy. The poisonous needles in the tail are 10 times more poisonous than the claws. The demonic beast is powerful and fierce. It will actively attack the invaders. Chen Rui frowned. He once witnessed the intensive battle between Sabrina and the manticore in the Crystal Valley. This kind of demonic beast was very difficult to deal with. Furthermore, the manticore’s combat power had been greatly reduced at that time after the tortures and experiments. Perhaps ordinary Demon Emperor level might not be its opponent.
At this moment, a huge black shadow appeared in the sky of the white mountain range. Chen Rui was instantly surprised when he saw it.
This was a giant dragon which was about 10 meters in length. It had a hideous appearance and a jet-black body with dark scales like armor. It reflected the black gem-like luster under the light.
Black Dragon: Dark Breath. Immune to low rank magic. Reduces the damage of high rank magic by 90%. The stronger the talent, the higher the immunity with the highest up to 99%. Compared with other dragons, it is slightly inferior in endurance and speed.
The talents of the black dragon and the crystal dragon were very similar. They were both the nemesis of the magic. Compared with the crystal dragon which was completely immune to magic, the black dragon was immune to low rank magic and reduced the damage of high rank magic by 90% (It was just the base number; the highest was up to 99%). It was almost equivalent to complete immunity. The black dragon also had a feature that the crystal dragon didn’t have. It could use high grade medicine.
Chen Rui was secretly surprised to see that Mountain Seckred not only had beasts like manticore, but also black dragons! No wonder Tiffany said that it was not where he (the businessman Simon) could go.
In the introductions of the other species that followed, Chen Rui finally found Fertile Yuan Soil that he had been searching for a long time.
Fertile Yuan Soil: A wonderful item with the power of the earth element source. It can greatly increase the earth element power, and it can even trigger some unknown mutation. However, it has a strong solidification effect on the body; it is not suitable for use by non-special creatures.
Chen Rui nodded. Fertile Yuan Soil is indeed a wonderful thing. The only “side effect” is solidifying the body, but for the earth elementals, there should be only benefits and no harm. No wonder there is such a remark at the end.
According to this information, Mountain Seckred is located in the Saxphil Mountain Range in the northern part of the Bloody Empire. The exact location is unknown, but I already have the rough location. Plus, I know the appearance of Mountain Seckred . It is much better than searching it cluelessly.
Mountain Seckred has terrifying creatures such as the manticore or even black dragon, and the specific location of Fertile Yuan Soil is unknown, but since I have already reached this point, how can I give up? I must go there to take a look anyway.
After finding the information on Fertile Yuan Soil, Chen Rui finally relaxed. There should still be some time left. I can walk around and collect more valuable information.
There was indeed much good information in the “world” on the 4th floor. Many of them were experiences or knowledge that had been lost. They were even beyond the scope of the mechanic masters. No one knew who left them. They were extremely profound, which were comparable to the Dark Shadow Empire’s ancient magic tower.
Chen Rui used the [Deep Analysis] to enter the non-repetitive “worlds” to obtain information and knowledge, but a strange feeling in his heart gradually became clear. This feeling was somewhat familiar. It was like the breath that permeated in the “worlds” in the entire 4th floor. It was continuous and endless. Perhaps this was the source and driving force of these “worlds”.
The more he went “in and out” of these “worlds,” the stronger the feeling. It seemed vast and boundless, and it was like changing seasons. He couldn’t express it with accurate language. Even the Star Power in his body began to fluctuate uncontrollably. It was probably led by unknown forces.
Chen Rui felt the strange fluctuations in his body. He suddenly had an idea, and he boldly took off the pair of glasses.
Although Nate repeatedly explained that he should not take off his glasses at any time, Chen Rui inexplicably just took them off as if everything was instinctive.
As soon as Chen Rui took off his glasses, Chen Rui felt an impact in his head. All the scenes had changed drastically. All the worlds and materials were gone. There were only large and small symbols flashing and rotating all over the sky.
Chen Rui was shocked when he saw those symbols. Ancient runes! All of them are ancient runes. They are not single texts or radicals; the entire “world” is made up of ancient runes!
If what Zola and I studied previously are words, short sentences, and paragraphs at best, then these ancient runes in front of me are a coherent and complete masterpiece! The wonders of the entire 4th floor and the strange feeling that you will forget many secondary memories when you go out are all the effects of the ancient runes!
All ancient runes are derived from those 18 basic runes, just like the radicals of Chinese characters, but literacy is only the first step. Zola and I have not even fully understood the basic rune signs derived from the 18 stone slab. Even if we know all the words, it does not mean we can write an article, let alone a complete work.
And the “world” in front of me is obviously a perfect and gorgeous “work”!
If Zola is here, she would definitely be super excited. There are countless unknown ancient runes phrases, radicals and even paragraph connectors. Not to mention the “worlds” created in it, these ancient runes alone are priceless treasures.
Although Chen Rui activated his [Deep Analysis], it was too late to take a closer look at these “priceless treasures” because the force that was originally only flowing slowly in his body had already boiled under the effect of this “visual”. It was almost to the point where it couldn’t be suppressed.
With this boiling, the ancient runes in the entire space began to change. Waves of strong dangerous breath spread all over the sky. Compared with this vast and boundless power, Chen Rui felt that he was only equivalent to an insignificant dust in the space. There was no possibility of resisting at all. If that breath was a living body, it only needed a thought to annihilate him completely!
Chen Rui could neither activate teleportation or [Star Gate] at that moment. He was shocked as he finally understood what was the familiar breath contained in this mysterious space.
This kind of territory is by no means an ordinary level of power. In contrast, the territory of Demon Emperor and Demon Overlord is as small as a stream in front of a surging river. Demi-God territory!
The 4th floor of the Book Collection Hall in the Bloody Empire’s Mechanic Association is actually a Demi-God territory constructed by ancient runes!
It was not the first time Chen Rui had faced a Demi-God territory. The last time was in the Rainbow Valley experiment. Although the trace of Demi-God territory breath was also the Demi-God territory, the complete territory in front of him was obviously not comparable to “a trace” of breath. It was not exactly the law of destruction. Chen Rui couldn’t even use some power to assimilate or evade it even if he wanted to.
He was about to be wiped out in an instant, but when the overwhelming terrifying power hit him, it seemed to “slip away” because of a certain rule. It was as if Chen Rui was an “exceptional” existence.
This phenomenon was of course not due to Chen Rui’s insignificant power, but the function of the cloak on his body.
The shocked Chen Rui finally recovered his senses. He suddenly understood the purpose of the cloak and glasses: This Demi-God’s territory space can obviously sense abnormal emotional fluctuations or active attacks. The function of the glasses is to shield the user’s emotional fluctuations and filter out the form of the ancient runes source so that the visitor cannot see these symbols with a strange energy. One can only see what the ancient runes express which are the “worlds”.
The cloak should contain a certain “special rule” in the territory. In the absence of anyone deliberately presiding over the situation, this “special rule” can protect users from ordinary infringements of the territory power. This is a bit similar to a high grade VIP account with corresponding privileges.
After Chen Rui figured out these things, he calmed down. The fluctuations in the territory really began to calm down a lot, but the tide-like power still rushed toward him. Fortunately, the special rule of the cloak still existed, so he was not injured.
As expected, Demi-God territory was not that simple. When Chen Rui just wanted to put on his glasses, suddenly his mind moved. He allowed the Demi-God-level power to continue to rush toward him. He did not control the surging power in his body, but he just relaxed his mind. He turned on the [Analysis] skill of the [Analytical Eyes]. With that huge force fluctuations, he experienced a mysterious feeling.
Last time in the Demi-God space of the Rainbow Valley, Chen Rui once felt a trace of the basic law. This greatly improved his territory power. Now, in this more complete and powerful Demi-God territory world, it happened to further strengthen his understanding of the basic law to make it more complete.
As expected, under the data collection of [Analysis], this kind of sentiment became deeper. It seemed that there were many things that were not available previously. It was like some kind of paper window had been pierced. Chen Rui had an inspiration. The power in his body immediately began to match with the external force. It even caused a certain resonance.
This was a kind of precious sudden realization.
However, the surrounding environment was not a joke. Once the resonance surpassed the protective power of the cloak, then the terrifying breath in the territory could instantly turn Chen Rui into flying ash. Although it was quite life-threatening, perhaps Chen Rui was the first in the Demon Realm to use the Demi-God territory power to train and realize the law as a Demon Emperor.
Chen Rui didn’t want to understand the mystery of the Demi-God territory as all changes would not deviate from its core principle. What he wanted to do was to use the Demi-God territory to consolidate and deepen his own basic law so that he could use it to derive his own power in the future.
In a certain “world”, Nate, who had been meditating and comprehending, suddenly felt the strangeness around him. It seemed that the scene of the world was changing and trembling violently like it was strongly disturbed. This was undoubtedly very abnormal. Nate did not dare to stay for a long time. He quickly withdrew from this “world.” However, when he came to the “big menu” of worlds that they first entered, he was suddenly startled.
He saw “Richard” hovering in the air. He was being thrown high in the air for a while, then crashing down again. What shocked him was that Richard’s face seemed to have no “glasses.” His closed eyes and uncontrollable body made it seem like he was dead!
Stupid thing, I told him previously, but he actually took off his glasses! Even me, the top master of the Demon Realm, will not dare to do that. This kid actually…
If it weren’t because “Richard” still had the greatest utilization value, Nate couldn’t wait to personally tear this fellow to pieces for interrupting his comprehension.
At this moment, Nate’s glasses suddenly lit up in red. The time limit for staying here is approaching! Danger!
Could Chen Rui comprehend a new territory from this “world”?
