The quality of the purple crystal in front of him was quite high, but the surface was covered with cracks and there was no sign of life. It was obviously severely damaged, and the previous wave of spiritual energy disappeared.
The level of this ancient alchemy civilization was obviously far better than that of the City of Stars. Although it was severely damaged and almost completely unusable, for Chen Rui, it was 100 times more precious than ordinary treasures.
Even if this was an abandoned city that couldn’t be restored, the existing materials in the city were likely to raise the level of the City of Stars to a higher level. What’s more, there must be many precious items in this level of relics…
Chen Rui could see that the cracked purple crystal was not completely scrapped. Otherwise the amount of spirit power could not be stored at all, and the room would be destroyed automatically. If sufficient energy could be provided, the crystal could still be repaired, but the spirit power devour just now had exhausted its last power. Now, it had completely lost the ability to resist.
Chen Rui thought for a while. A purple light appeared in his hand as he approached the crystal. It was the spiritual imprint of the City of Stars.
“Unknown spiritual imprint!”
“Identified as the power of similar civilizations!”
“It doesn’t match with the imprint of the dominating soul; refuse to add spiritual imprint!”
“Judged as an intruder! Start defense!”
“Insufficient life energy, unable to activate defense… The purple crystal’s messages kept popping in Chen Rui’s mind. Because his spiritual imprint did not match the soul power of the original crystal master, the purple crystal seemed to be very resistant. Unfortunately, with the current strength of the crystal, it was impossible to resist the invasion of Chen Rui.
The purple light smoothly merged with the crystal, and the spiritual imprint power spread quickly like a spider web. It seized control step by step while continuously eroding the original structure.
“Insufficient energy, give up the level 3 authority protection…”
“Abandon level 2 authority protection…”
“Abandon level 1 authority protection and retain the highest level authority. Enter protective dormancy…”
Soon, the spiritual imprint power of the City of Stars succeeded in occupying the crystal and obtained most of the authority. However, due to the difference in level, it was unable to obtain the highest core control authority. Even so, this was enough to make Chen Rui delighted.
After gaining control, Chen Rui immediately received a warning of insufficient energy. He immediately took out an energy conversion instrument produced by the City of Stars and converted dozens of aura fruit into energy cubes before placing them next to the purple crystal.
These energy cubes were top-level energy essence which could provide the highest purity of life energy, and the quality was far above the energy extracted by the alchemy civilization.
The purple crystal began to absorb energy quickly like a hungry person gorging on food. Its purple light gradually brightened and became more dazzling. The scene of the entire room changed into a vast space. The facilities in the room could be changed by Chen Rui’s mind.
The whole lifeless ruin began to light up with dots of light as if it suddenly regained its vitality.
At this time, the titans in the far distance of the canyon seemed to sense the abnormality. Their eyes flashed with murderous intent as they roared in anger.
Chen Rui didn’t know the changes of the titans, and was still indulging in the surprise of controlling this ruin. Most of the cracks in the central life crystal had been healed, and countless feedback messages were passed into his mind:
The damage degree of the material warehouse is 30%, docking is available…
Data department damage degree, docking is available······
The damage to the creature warehouse is 90%, docking is unavailable…
The name of this ruin was ‘Sky Wheel’, and it was level 4, which was 2 levels higher than the level 2 of the City of Stars. Chen Rui first chose to view the data department. As the controller of the central life crystal, he did not need to go to the data department. He only needed to use docking to directly view or reach the corresponding facilities through the crystal.
When Chen Rui took control of the City of Stars, the database was completely damaged and could not be repaired or reviewed. Only some fragments could be obtained from the incomplete memory of the soul imprint. Now, he finally found a usable database.
Although only the information was available, the remaining information in the ruin was still rich beyond imagination. Just the pharmaceutics memory crystal, which was fairly complete, gave Chen Rui an unexpected surprise.
Among them, there was also an incomplete ‘log’ that required level 1 permission to open, which caught Chen Rui’s attention.
“On the 3rd day of the 17th week of the new moon 12th yuan year, the assemble puppet I studied finally succeeded and sensationalized the entire civilized world. As the chief alchemist of the Lanling Empire, the lord of the Sky Wheel, I, Doruda. Tracilo’s name is destined to be written in the annals of history and praised by future generations…”
The first log surprised Chen Rui. Doruda. Tracilo, the controller of the Sky Wheel is actually the inventor of the assemble puppet!
“The 7th day of the 23rd week of the new moon 24 yuan year. This is the darkest day of my life. Manlace actually married Fasmore, that simple-minded muscular idiot! I curse this damn marriage, and I will let that woman regret all her life…”
“On the 1st day of the 5th week of the arc moon 2nd year, Fasmore died of a rare threaded lesion; at least on the surface. This is only a technical problem. It is impossible for those stupid doctors to detect my means… On the 3rd day of the 12th week of the 2nd year of arc Moon, Manlace, the stupid woman, this widow whose husband has died, actually rejected me again. Damn! You think I really love your body? I have already created a maroon lamp spirit whose body, appearance, voice and even personality are exactly the same as yours. Every part of her has become a way for me to vent my desires! What I want to see is just the regret and helplessness after you were abandoned by me…”
“On the 29th day of the 12th week of the 2nd year of Arc Moon, Manlace died. After learning the true cause of Fasmore’s death, she died in front of my eyes. Those eyes full of hatred made me tremble… In order to avoid future troubles, I killed her son and all her relatives… From this day on, I erased the original consciousness of the maroon lamp spirit and sealed her in the creature warehouse forever because I was afraid to see that face…”
These intermittent fragments made the reader shudder as if seeing a vicious and extremely self-centered mad ‘scientist’.
“On the 3rd day of the 17th week of the 7th year of the crescent moon, just as the war giant’s research was progressing, some strange enemies came. These enemies have unignorable combat power, but they are still vulnerable in front of the guards and the assemble puppet… We are wrong, everyone is wrong, the enemy’s terrifying far exceeds ours probably. The most terrifying thing is that the number has been continuously increasing. It is almost endless. We finally issued the signal for help at the Siamnu Empire. We saw 2 words: the abyss… The Siamnu Empire, 1 of the 4 empires has perished. The speed is incredibly fast… Wherever the abyss creatures passed, there was no occupation or enslavement; there is only endless destruction. The Siamnu Empire actually has no survivors!”
“The fearful shadow quickly enveloped the entire world of the alchemy civilization… All the empires formed a temporary coalition army to fight the abyss, but it was still too late… If we found and destroyed that space entrance when the abyss creatures just arrived, maybe… Unfortunately, there are no more ifs.”
“We were defeated, completely defeated by the terrifying enemy, one of the masters of the abyss, Quilliana! The hatred power she possessed made everyone tremble…” These records on the log described the Abyss Family’s whole process of destroying the alchemy civilization were all the ancient mysteries that had not been recorded. Seeing the phrase ‘no occupation and enslavement; only endless destruction’, Chen Rui suddenly thought of the mysterious cult and the Black Death Follower. He took a deep breath before looking down again.
“The world of the alchemy civilization is on the verge of extinction… No! I can’t die, I must escape this world. My war giant research has not been completed yet, and my reputation as the top genius cannot disappear with the annihilation of civilization… As one of the important commanders of the coalition army, I successfully stole the final strategic energy of the coalition army and concentrated it all on Sky Wheel. I’m preparing to try a space shuttle that has never been tried before. As for the life and death of the rest, it has nothing to do with me…”
“I used the maximum power to activate the space crystal ball. Whether I can escape depends on luck… I finally awakened. Although my body is on the verge of collapse, fortunately, I’m still alive… I don’t know what year it is, nor do I know what space plane this is. In any case, this is a new starting point. Civilization is created by human. I will rule the entire plane and create a new civilization named Doruda. Tracilo…”
“This plane is actually the main plane where the legendary gods descended! There are countless powerful enemies. It seems that I must collect energy as soon as possible, repair my body, restore the Sky Wheel’s combat power, and step up the war giants’ Research… The war giant finally got a breakthrough, I named it the titans… The titans have melee combat capabilities comparable to giant crystal beasts, and they are immune to spirit power, but their speed is slower. These are definitely not enough. What I want to make is not another giant crystal beast, but the strongest strategic weapon with long-range attacks… By the way, the wind elementals captured the day before yesterday… A great day to remember! The titans finally emerged with the core of the wind elementals! It has the strength of lightning and storm!”
“It’s unbelievable. After obtaining the core of the wind elementals, the titans have been able to obtain energy from the wind elements in the air without relying on energy cubes. This is a great initiative… But these giants actually produced a sense of autonomy not controlled by the life crystal! Damn slaves, dare to disobey my control, dare to resist my greatest master! I must dispatch all guardians and completely destroy these slaves… When eliminating those slaves who resist, a large number of the wind elementals appeared and actually breached the perimeter protection… Damn the wind elementals and titans, if it wasn’t my body…”
This was the end of the log. Chen Rui finally understood the whole story. It turned out that the titans were a new type of weapon made by Doruda. Unfortunately, there had been a rebellion. Also, the words like the ‘main plane’ in the log made him feel puzzled. Before he could think about it, the crystal suddenly produced a sharp voice, “Warning! Intruders detected at the external perimeter! They have entered the warning area. The damage rate of the defense system is 99%. It cannot be activated!”
TL: So these alchemy civilizations all came from the same plane that was destroyed by the Abyss Family. Now, can he convince those titans and wind elementals?
