The incident of ‘Roman’ was immediately reflected in the magic mirror outside the Star Tower. The fact that someone fainted at the beginning of ‘Star Rise’ really surprised the senior executives of the college.
The most astonished were Socrates and Belia. At this time, even more shocking things happened.
MacGall, who was not far from ‘Roman’ stood up with undisguised hatred in his eyes. There was actually a sword in his hand. A flame emerged from the sword as he walked toward ‘Roman’ step by step.
The people in front of the magic mirror were taken aback. Although the strength of MacGall was still one step away from the real Saint, his swordsmanship was so skilled that only a few college instructors could match it. [Blazing Flame Sword] was his famous sword skills. Looking at MacGall’s momentum, he was actually trying to kill the unconscious participant with all his strength – It seems that the participant’s fainting is probably also a plot by MacGall!
Belia’s thoughts turned sharply, and she calmed down in the end. As far as I know, ‘Roman’’s strength is at least the real Saint, plus he has a deep scheming and strange methods. How could he easily fall into the trap of a character like MacGall.
The most anxious was Socrates, who yelled, “Regiana! Open the emergency space channel now! Hurry!”
Regiana was the dean of Starlight College. The original space of the Star Tower had been closed, and people outside could not enter. The emergency space channel was a special item made by using the star powers, which enabled one to enter and exit the Star Tower in a short time. This item could only be used once per trial. It was originally used to handle emergency events as a backup. They didn’t expect to use it right away shortly after the trial was started.
Although Regiana did not understand why MacGall would suddenly kill this person who participated in the trial, he also knew that the situation was urgent, so he immediately took out a crystal and cast a spell. A few runes began to fly out of the crystal and they slowly merged together.
It took about 15 seconds to open the space channel. Meanwhile, in the magic mirror, MacGall had approached ‘Roman’ and raised the sword high.
Socrates was extremely anxious, and his whole body was surging with magic power. As soon as the space entrance opened, he would rush in to stop MacGall.
MacGall’s cruel face seemed to be distorted from hatred as his hands trembled slightly. He hesitated for a moment before finally severely chopped down. ‘Roman’ who was in a coma didn’t have the slightest resistance and was beheaded. The long sword with flames slashed several times in just a few seconds. The body of ‘Roman’ was completely cut off and disintegrated. The broken limbs burned under the powerful flame attached to the sword turned into ashes in the blink of an eye.
This scene not only stunned the college senior executives in front of the magic mirror, but even the participants in the Star Tower, including Quinn, were dumbfounded- This is too cruel! He actually used such cruel methods to kill people in the Star Tower in front of so many people!
Socrate’s’ blood was boiling as he was watching it, but Belia’s brows relaxed because she and ‘Roman’ signed an equality contract, and the power of the contract had not disappeared at this moment, indicating that the ‘death’ of ‘Roman’ was simply a cover.
‘Roman’ should be using death to conceal his future actions so as to avoid involving me… What a good method. He actually deceived so many people publicly. He deserves to be my collaborator indeed.
However, why did MacGall take the initiative to attack ‘Roman’? Belia’s eyes squinted, and there was a ray of cold light.
In the distance of the ‘crime scene’, a man with short hair and yellow skin secretly gave MacGall a thumbs up and praised: Brother Mac draws a clear line between grace and revenge; he is a man! I salute you!
After ‘venting’, MacGall seemed to regain his consciousness, and he was dumbfounded. Just now I let jealousy and hatred get into my mind, and I have a strong desire to crush this love rival to pieces. I can’t believe I put it into action in a blast of fury!
I’m in real trouble now! Those who could enter the Star Tower were not average people. Even the worst would be my colleague in the future, even if my current identity is the senior instructor of the college, I can’t bear this kind of consequence.
At this time, the space channel finally opened, and Socrates’ figure went into the entrance instantly. In the magic mirror, a lightning went straight to MacGall. Not to mention that MacGall was unprepared, even if he was prepared, how could he resist Saint magician’s furious shot? Before he could resist, he fell to the ground, scorched.
After all, Socrates still maintained a sense of sanity and didn’t really kill him until the truth of the matter was ascertained.
“Damn it!” Socrates looked at the shattered corpse of ‘Roman’ that had completely disappeared and roared angrily. He is truly annihilated; even his corpse is gone. Even if there is the legendary resurrection potion, it is impossible for him to come back to life!
This talent he valued, this magic circle quasi-instructor with the super talent of magic circle, actually inexplicably died under the hateful murderer’s sword!
“This incident was purely accidental. That was the college instructor, MacGall. He was too impatient and used some kind of poison training previously, so he lost his sanity and made a big mistake today. In any case, we will thoroughly investigate this matter. I will give everyone an explanation at that time, and I can guarantee that nothing like this will happen again in the future.”
Regiana’s figure appeared behind Socrates, and his voice sounded throughout the space, “The rest, please continue the trial. Now is the most important period of Star Rise. Don’t be affected by this.”
Regiana made up a reason that was barely justifiable, and he did not stay any longer. He took Socrates who was still in rage and the half-dead coke man out of the space of the Star Tower.
The people dispersed one after another, returned to their respective positions, and began to calm down to comprehend the star power; only Quinn was worried. Dean Regiana had always been known for being rigorous and fair. If he said that a thorough investigation would be conducted, it would definitely be done. Neil was the driving force behind this incident, but he was also the one who gave the idea. Under this kind of mood, Quinn had difficulty concentrating for a while, and he was unable to reach the best state. Hence, the effect of Star Rise on him was naturally greatly reduced. It was considered to be self-inflicted.
In fact, when Chen Rui first entered the darkness of the Star Tower, he had already become 2. MacGall ‘killed’ avatar Shura. From MacGall’s magnified hatred of to ruthlessly slicing the body apart, it was all due to Shura’s illusion power. After confusing MacGall, Shura had returned to the unscathed original body.
The role of ‘Roman’ should be over. He didn’t want to stay in Starlight College, so he conveniently disappeared via MacGall’s hand. This also had the intention of not dragging Belia, because Belia was an important piece for him to destroy the mysterious cult, and he must protect her now. The longer he waited, the bigger outcome could be achieved.
After solving the small character as an onlooker, Chen Rui really settled down and began to fully comprehend the star power around him.
The star power of the Star Tower was similar to the Star Power in Chen Rui’s body, but they were not the same.
Star Power was made by tempering the original power of the Super System. Whether it was quality or quantity, it was better than ordinary power. In other words, this was a kind of high-end law power.
This should also be the origin of the Super System. Once he could fully comprehend it, he could reach the highest evolution and have an unimaginable strength. In other words, the step by step evolution of the Super System was to lay the foundation for mastering and comprehending the final law.
Unfortunately, this kind of law was still too profound for Chen Rui now. He couldn’t exert its power at all under ordinary conditions. Only under special circumstances could he passively activate a trace of power such as [Pole Star Transformation].
The star power in the Star Tower contained a more basic and simpler law. For Chen Rui’s current strength, it was easier to understand and grasp, so this was a rare opportunity.
Like everyone else around, Chen Rui was gradually immersed in comprehension.
One day passed quickly. In the magic mirror, the Star Tower space became hazy as everyone seemed to be divided into a separate space. Their figures gradually became blurred, and the light inside their bodies began to shine.
This was the second stage, the beginning of star ranking. The time was 3 hours. The level of understanding of the star power was different, so the intensity and color of the light radiated from the body were also different. Gold was the highest, silver was the second, and white was the lowest.
The 3-hour final star ranking would determine the intensity of the third stage of Starfall. The size of the obtained star power had a direct impact on the most critical Tower Condensation. Generally speaking, one could basically determine the level of the final Tower Condensation from the star ranking segment.
As soon as the ranking started, an eye-catching thing happened. A bright golden light appeared in the magic mirror which instantly overshadowed everyone’s light. This golden light became more and more dazzling like a sun, making it almost impossible to look at it directly.
The senior executives of the college were all shocked. Even Socrates, who was still furious, showed a surprised expression. It’s the first time I see a light with such intensity and purity in the history of Star Tower!
This is definitely a genius among geniuses!
The initially dull atmosphere caused by the murder suddenly became active. The college executives seemed particularly excited because among participants in the trial, college teachers and students accounted for 70%, and more than half of the remaining 30% might become college teachers, so the chances of this super genius to be part of the college were quite high.
Unfortunately, due to the special power of the ranking rule, it was impossible to see the faces of others in the Star Tower, and this rule was also protective. Everyone was in a relatively independent space which prevented interference from each other, so there would be no similar incidents like MacGall’s attack previously. The only thing one could do was to strengthen his perception and strive for higher ranking.
The golden light also attracted the attention of the participants in the Star Tower. Who is this person? With such a strong light, is it the person who stands at the top of the Star Tower this time?
Not far from the golden light, Landbis also showed an expression of shock like many people, but she quickly calmed down and began to seize the time to comprehend the star power- The time for ranking is very limited. Rather than admiring others, it is better to do my best to improve my own comprehension and position.
Under the stimulation of golden light, the light on many people gradually became brighter.
Chen Rui was at the center of the golden light. He had a new perception of star power. He tried to integrate this perception with his own use of Star Power in order to find a trace of the law.
“No…” Chen Rui frowned. Every time he was about to grasp it, he would fail without success again and again. It seemed to be infinitely close, but he kept feeling that something was wrong. It seemed that he was getting further and further away from the keypoint.
Did I turn into a dead end?
The instinct of training for many years told him that if he forcefully continued forward, he would only continue to hit the wall.
Different points of view bring different perspectives. The best way is to give up everything before and to understand it from a new perspective. However, the competition for ranking time is only 3 hours. 1 hour has passed, and only 2 hours are left to start all over. This is not the Super System, so I can’t use the time law.
Once I choose to start over, it means giving up my current first advantage which will directly affect the following of ‘Starfall’ and ‘Tower Condensation’.
Chen Rui was in a dilemma for a while. After thinking for a long time, he finally made up his mind.
In the magic mirror, the dazzling golden light suddenly dimmed, and it finally disappeared without a trace. This shocked the onlookers again. What happened?
That peerless genius was exhausted because of some secret technique? Or an accident happened?
Even Dean Regiana couldn’t sit still, but due to the previous MacGall incident, the emergency space item that could only be used once had been used, so he couldn’t go in to see what is actually happening now.
Many eyes were fixed on the magic mirror, hoping that the strong golden light would appear again.
The participants in the Star Tower were naturally happy about this; they were more gloating. They initially thought that there was no hope of competing for the highest ranking, but now the strongest competitor suddenly became weaker, this was a godsend opportunity. All of a sudden, the competition among participants had become more and more fierce.
The end of the star ranking had finally arrived. What made the college executives regretful was that the golden light never appeared as expected. It was likely that the person was eager for success which had caused problems in comprehension. Now that the overall situation was set, even if he made a comeback, his ranking would not change.
After the ranking was determined, the independent space in which each person was located began to move and change automatically. The strongest comprehension was moved to the very center, and the others were scattered from strong to weak in circular radiation. Each space also formed a network network-like connection. This seemed to be some kind of mysterious formation.
An hour later, bright stars fell in the starry sky, covering the corresponding figures in them, and the Starfall began.
The silhouettes in the starlight absorbed and transformed this power of falling stars with all their strength. Soon, towers of varying heights and colors shining with starlight began to appear.
Everyone was a ‘tower’, the Star Tower.
Through this tower, one could absorb starlight, continuously temper his body or soul, and even gain a higher level of realm insight.
Among the many ‘towers’, there was a light on the outermost periphery that was a bit prominent, not because it was strong, but because it was weak.
Generally speaking, those who could enter the Star Tower were not mediocrities. After the Starfall for so long, the tower shape had not solidified. It could only be described by the words ‘damn weak’. It was likely to be a connection of a certain empire or a large force. The previous strong golden genius and this kind of ‘idiot’ who couldn’t even complete the Tower Condensation were the most extreme in the history of the Star Tower.
In fact, ‘the strongest in history’ and ‘the weakest in history’ were both the same person, Chen Rui.
TL: What insight can he gain? Will his Star Level in Super System increase?
