Roman was actually very unlucky. Although he had a little flirtatious feeling in the Jergal Fortress and Medilu before, he just told her his real name and didn’t reveal anything else including being in the Dark Moon and so on. Then, he left the Jergal Fortress with no news – just like a consistent style of a widow-lover in a novel, he came heroically and left unrestrainedly, hiding his name and leaving no traces behind.
However, being a playboy had its consequences in the end. During the alchemist master contest in the capital, as the ruler representative of the Dark Shadow Empire, Regent Frentz accidentally discovered the ‘savior’ Roman.
The experienced Regent did not contact Roman immediately, but he sent someone to investigate. It was found that Roman seemed to be very close with the Dark Moon Lord Athena and others. After the competition, they even returned to the Dark Moon Estate together. He was sure that Roman was in the Dark Moon Estate.
Medilu of the Dark Shadow Empire got news from his father and rushed to the Dark Moon Estate immediately, but she ran into Delia by accident. Delia was the younger sister of Medilu’s ‘ex-husband’. They could empathize with each other because they were both controlled by Broc. Delia escaped Broc’s watch and went to the Silent Night Wetland with the help of Medilu. In the end, Broc died, and the [Soul Shackles] which tortured Medilu and Delia were canceled.
This was the first time the 2 met after Delia fled. It was a surprise reunion. However, when Medilu shyly asked Delia about a ‘person’, the surprise turned into a shock. The heartwarming scene turned into tragedy. Roman was in trouble without doing anything.
After Chen Rui’s ingenious mediation, the contradictions among them finally subsided. Of course, the method of mediating contradictions was indeed a bit strange – The vicious mouth of the little mermaid princess, the heartbroken expression of the little loli, the resentful gaze of the little maid, Madam Aunt’s ‘So you’ve been eyeing Delia’ memo, Master Poison Dragon vigilantly standing in front of Ms. Betty and other scenes made, Chen Rui felt like he was self-defeating.
Now that Medilu was still in the Dark Moon and the diplomatic pressure from the Dark Shadow Empire was still there, things were not resolved. Regent Frentz proposed this matter to Shea in the name of ‘return gratitude’. The Dark Shadow Empire Regent recruiting a ‘civilian’ of the Fallen Angel Empire was a great benefit for both Roman personally and for the friendship between the 2 empires. For various reasons, this recruitment was currently only proposed to Shea in private by the envoy of the Dark Shadow Empire, and it had not been officially made public.
After Isabella, Athena and others had a long talk with Delia, Isabella came forward as Aunt Roman and ‘met’ the mistress, Medilu.
In fact, Medilu never knew about the relationship between Delia and Roman, and she was still waiting for news in Delia’s hotel. After listening to Isabella explain the whole thing, Medilu looked very surprised, only to know that Roman’s lover was actually Delia, and Delia ran away at all costs as well as endured the pain of [Soul Shackles] for Roman.
If that was the case, the purpose of Roman fighting Broc desperately at the Jergal Fortress was very clear.
The dejected Medilu didn’t entangle further, and she quietly left the Dark Moon.
According to the news of a slime spy, a depressed Medilu met Delia who was escorting Roman in the suburbs. The 3 seemed to have been talking for a long time. Due to the vigilance of the parties, the specific content of the conversation was unknown. Nevertheless, when Medilu left in the end, her pace seemed much lighter.
Soon after, the envoy of the Dark Shadow Empire left the Fallen Angel Capital, and the ‘son-in-law’ incident seemed to be over.
Next, Chen Rui focused on the City of Stars with 2 most important tasks. First, the experimentation of the game’s core crystal; second, the manufacture of the titans. In addition, the version upgrade of the ‘Infinite Warrior OL’ and the production of the human world game version had also been put on the agenda.
The central life crystal of the ancient civilizations was unique. Only 1 crystal could exist in a city, controlling the entire city and alchemy creatures. However, civilization capitals above level 5 had a ‘sub-body’ function, which could isolate the replica of the life crystal whose authority was lower than the original body. The replica crystal could be used to build a secondary city under the control of the capital and gradually expand into a real empire. This was the origin of the ancient alchemy civilization empire.
The City of Stars was currently only a level 3 civilization city. Based on the current conditions, it was basically impossible to reach level 4, let alone a level 5 ‘capital’”. However, what Chen Rui wanted was not to control and regenerate the city function, just a ‘game console CPU’.
Now the ‘Infinite Warrior OL’ had a lot of data and reference materials. According to Crystal Phoenix’s calculations, this idea was completely possible to achieve, but it needed the most critical material, ‘yuan crystal’, which consisted the ‘vitality yuan’ that construct the life crystal. It was irreplaceable. Even in the ‘plane’ where the ancient alchemy civilization was located, it was extremely rare.
As long as he could get this yuan crystal, he could not only successfully manufacture the game control core crystal that Chen Rui wanted, but it would also greatly enhance the ability of Crystal Phoenix, and even have a power that was comparable to the core crystal of level 4 and level 5 civilization.
As for the titans, Crystal Phoenix had mastered and integrated all the relevant information about Doruda’s design of the crystal board to produce a manufacturing plan. Except for the indispensable ‘wind core’ of the wind elementals, the rest of the materials had been sorted and calculated. Judging from the current inventory, only 1 main material was in short supply which was the thunder nitrate needed to build the titans body.
Thunder nitrate was a magic material that could conduct and buff wind element magic without any resistance. This material was not particularly rare in the Demon Realm, but it was generally used as an additive when making weapons or items. The required amount was not huge, and the output was relatively limited. According to Chen Rui’s knowledge, the total amount of thunder nitrate in all the magic shops in Dark Moon City was probably only enough to make 1 arm of the titans.
It seemed that the next step was to acquire thunder nitrate in large quantities. As for the control of the titans, there was no need to worry. The titan leader Oceanus had already offered the ‘commander will’ and it was absorbed by Chen Rui’s spiritual imprint. The power of will was injected into the soul of titans, and they would absolutely obey Chen Rui, but there was a premise that this power of will could not subdue the titans who were also leaders. Once a titan leader appeared, other methods were needed. If he really could not control it, he could consider destroying it.
One day, Chen Rui was debugging the new race version of the ‘Infinite Warrior OL’ in the City of Stars when he suddenly received a text message from Isabella, asking him to speed back to the Dark Moon residence. Chen Rui knew that Isabella would not summon him for no reason, so he immediately put down the work at hand, opened the [Star Gate], and returned to the residence.
Once he came out of the space door, he saw a distinguished and familiar guest.
Chen Rui was startled, then he quickly bowed, “Sir Auglas!”
It turned out that it was the Old Dragon Emperor Father-In-Law Auglas who came to the Dark Moon.
Compared with the last time, Auglas’s breath was more restrained. There was no special demeanor on the outside, and his eyes were crystal clear. The more he looked at it, the more blurred his facial features became. The deterrence that penetrated into his soul became clearer.
Chen Rui had only experienced this feeling from Satan and Raphael. Although Auglas’ breath felt a lot weaker to Chen Rui, there was no doubt that it was a sign that his strength had reached a certain height.
Since he did not activate [Pole Star Transformation], Auglas’s strength was always displayed as ‘unable to determine’ in the [Analytical Eyes].
Recalling the Pseudo-God’s Dragon Power Essence that obtained after defeating the Holy Dragon Rodriguez, Chen Rui’s eyes lit up, “Sir Auglas, have you successfully stepped into the Pseudo-God?!”
Auglas smiled slightly, but he didn’t say anything. His eyes suddenly became misty.
When Chen Rui looked at the gaze, he seemed to be trapped in the endless starry sky and unable to extricate himself. He focused his mind, and his consciousness turned into the solar system of the Super System to contain the starry sky before he finally got rid of the strength of the gaze.
Auglas didn’t use all his strength just now, but he didn’t expect Chen Rui to get rid of it so quickly. He felt a little surprised. He was about to increase his power and try again when Ms. Black Dragon appeared beside Chen Rui, holding boss’ arm, “Dad! Boss has come, you should give him the prize!”
As soon as Ms. Black Dragon appeared, the deep deterrence of the Sir Dragon Emperor disappeared immediately. Especially when he saw the intimate actions of his daughter and Chen Rui, his smile became even more evident like a kind and unassuming father.
Chen Rui was taken aback, “What reward?”
“Ukleus… died in your hands, right?” Auglas said, “Although your strength has increased compared to the last time, it is still a certain distance from the kingdom level. Could it be that Ukleus’ strength has degenerated to this level? Or, you had used other means?”
“No! Dad!” Olypheus said first, “Boss is very powerful! The dracolich that killed my mother was annihilated by boss himself. Sister, Paglio, Betty and others can testify! There were many, many more audiences that day!”
“Dracolich?” There was a hint of grief in the depths of Auglas’ gaze, “Ukleus actually went into this path… Anyway, Chen Rui, thank you.”
“This is what I should do. Since he is Olypheus’ enemy, he is also my enemy.” Chen Rui glanced at Ms. Black Dragon, “Actually, Ukleus was restricted by an ancient rune rule at that time, so his strength was much weaker. Furthermore, he can’t escape or resurrect with the life box. Otherwise, I might not be able to eliminate him.”
Auglas nodded approvingly, “I’m here mainly for 2 things. Firstly is to cancel Olypheus’ spiritual imprint control, but I can see that her spiritual imprint has been weakened by half, and it will be completely canceled soon. There is no need for me to do anything; The second thing is the cause of Ukleus’s death, these 2 things… you did a good job. I’m very satisfied. What reward you want. Just say it.”
Chen Rui felt that Ms. Black Dragon’s hand around his arm tightened. As he glanced at her, he was speechless when he found that the chick’s eyes had turned into 🤑. He had an idea suddenly, “I need a lot of thunder nitrate. The more the better. Plus the yuan crystal. I don’t know if sir can satisfy these 2 wishes.”
“Yuan crystal… is a little troublesome. I can only provide some clues. As for thunder nitrate, it is not a problem, a dragon whom I brought along this time once defeated the Elder Blue Dragon Sorian in a bet and won a huge Wind Dragon Island. There is a massive amount of high-purity thunder nitrate ore on that island.” A strange expression flashed across Auglas’ eyes, “The guy is in the yard, but I want to remind you that you better be mentally prepared because you will face special challenges.”
