“Impressive sensing power. ” Rafael’s eyelids moved slightly and slowly opened, “As expected by the person chosen by the Crown of Thorns, you can see my might at a glance.”
Those pupils were actually white. It seemed to have the power to penetrate everything as they shot directly into Chen Rui’s eyes. Chen Rui only felt his soul tremble, and he couldn’t help shivering. The poison dragon and emerald dragon behind Chen Rui immediately became alert, and they made a move with a shout.
When Rafael’s eyes flashed, Paglio and Krobelus felt their bodies go numb, and the flashing figures returned to their original position as if they were entangled by countless invisible chains. Their power was also sealed by this entanglement, making them unable to move.
“Don’t worry, dragons.” Rafael smiled lightly, “I didn’t mean to hurt him. If I really want to do something, it’s impossible to stop me with your strength.”
Chen Rui’s body suddenly radiated a strong light. Circles of light waves rippled, and he seemed to become crystal clear. In the blink of an eye, he returned to his original state.
“No doubt it’s the [Body of Light Glory]. It completely absorbed the holy light.” Rafael’s white pupils gradually reverted to black color, but his face became blurred.
Chen Rui’s eyes had regained clarity as he bowed, “Thank you, sir.”
Raphael was a little puzzled, “Your body is a bit surprising to me. I wanted to improve your power just now, but there is a special devour power in your body. The holy light power I gave you was absorbed in another way.”
“Yes, sir, this is the spirit imprint power that I inherited from the ancient alchemy civilization. Since I have not fully digested the power of imprint, the imprint will automatically convert the external force into the perception of the grand master of alchemy. My strength cannot be improved for the time being. I can only absorb external forces and increase my strength when I have full control of the imprint.”
“Ancient alchemy civilization? En… no wonder you became a mechanical grand master at such a young age.” Rafael glanced at the stagnant dragon couple, “Are these 2 dragons your guardians?”
Chen Rui nodded and said, “The poison dragon and emerald dragon. To be precise, they are the guardians left to me by the ancient alchemy civilization. Besides them, there are 4 others who are not here for the time being.”
Rafael nodded slightly. Meanwhile, Paglio and Krobelus felt that the restraint disappeared. The 2 looked at each other without making any move. The strength of this enemy was far beyond what they could match. This powerhouse should have no ill will toward Chen Rui, so they didn’t go all out now.
Chen Rui breathed a sigh of relief. He was secretly glad that he passed the most important level.
Raphael’s light element holy power was indeed absorbed by the [Body of Light Glory] just now, but since he used the [Breath Holding] of the Super System to show his strength as a Warrior (Higher Demon) level, with Raphael’s powerful eyesight, if he easily changes the breath to ‘advance’, it was likely to reveal flaws. Fortunately, he successfully fooled him with the inheritance of the ancient alchemy civilization.
“Let me see the power of the Crown of Thorns.”
“Yes.” Chen Rui replied respectfully. A crystal clear white crown appeared on his head, and circles of divine light spread out.
“Quite pure power of [Divine Blessing], very good! As expected of the master chosen by the Crown of Thorns.” Rafael’s tone was full of approval, “My name is Raphael, 1 of the 3 archangels.”
Chen Rui had already anticipated that this was Raphael’s avatar, and he showed a realization expression on his face. He once again bowed deeply, “I didn’t expect it to be Sir Raphael in person!”
“The [Body of Light Glory], the blessed one recognized by the Crown of Thorns, are you willing to follow my footsteps and be under the blessing of the Holy Light forever?”
Chen Rui’s thoughts turned, and he said without hesitation, “I do.”
“From today onward, you are the Holy Child of the Holy Church, responsible of spreading the teachings, inspiring and converting the most loyal believer with the Crown of Thorns. Your status is slightly lower than the 3 archbishops and higher than the cardinal. As long as you maintain your piety and be cautious, you will be the pioneer and guide of the future of the church. As for loyalty… you are a wise man. I don’t have to remind you of that.”
Gralin and Miranda showed strange expressions. It was more respectful and joyful. Raphael’s words had been obvious, ‘Arthur’ would be the next pope, which also represented the supreme controller of the entire Holy Blessing Summit in the future.
“The official canonization ceremony of the Holy Child will be officially held at the Holy Light Mountain in the future.” Raphael said indifferently, “Now you can do what you want to do, and the church will provide maximum support, including the throne, holy relics… and everything.”
“Understood, Sir Raphael!” Chen Rui showed his triumphant expression as his mind brightened: The reason why the supreme being of the Holy Blessing Summit descended and canonized personally is a final decision, which completely marked ‘Arthur’ with the ‘Raphael’ tag, making it impossible for me to change my mind to go to another faction.
There should also be a corresponding competition between the 3 archangels, which was likely to be reflected in aspects such as faith power, but these were not important to Chen Rui. Raphael’s promise of ‘support’ was what he wanted the most.
Chen Rui’s guess was not far off. His real worth was the [Body of Light Glory] and the Crown of Thorns.
[Divine Blessing] of the Crown of Thorns could convert someone into light-element physique. Although the effect was inferior to the Snow Dallet Tree, now the Snow Dallet Tree had disappeared, the Crown of Thorns became a necessary replacement. Otherwise, the Holy Church would be equivalent to losing its own blood-making ability, and he could only absorb the people from the 2 Holy Empires to become the backbone of the church. The [Body of Light Glory] appeared in the 2 Holy Empires because of the 2 holy relics. However, unlike the Crown of Thorns, which had its own convert function, the Holy Grail and Holy Light Robe did not have the convert function. It’s just that its own sacred attribute would affect the bloodline, and there would be a certain chance of creating light-element physique. This chance was highly dependent on luck. The probability was far less than the Crown of Thorns.
After the Snow Dallet Tree ‘disappeared’, the church could no longer convert the light-element physique, so the [Body of Light Blessing] became less and less, and the [Body of Light Glory] became even rarer. By convention, 1 of the prerequisites for the pope was the [Body of Light Glory]. Although Vantis was still in place, in the absence of a light-element physique, Chen Rui had already entered the vision of the church’s higher level with the [Body of Light Glory] alone.
Therefore, Raphael, 1 of the 3 archangels, would personally come to recruit this ‘talent’ who carried many titles such as imperial prince, internal affairs genius, alchemy grand master, the [Body of Light Glory], and the Crown of Thorns.
Raphael nodded, “Here is 2 more things. The first is the Holy Ring Badge. This badge represents my will and privilege. You can issue orders to any church personnel below the archbishop, including Glorious Knight and judges. This badge also has another function that is to summon my avatar, but this summoning can only be used once, and it consumes a lot of my original body power, so you should not use it unless it is a last resort. The second is the ‘Chain’ of Mind’. It is a powerful artifact that imprisons the soul and spirit power. Even if the opponent is a super powerhouse with a kingdom strength, he cannot be immune to it. With this artifact and the Holy Ring Badge, plus the poison dragon Kingdom level guardian, it should be able to keep you safe until you return to the Holy Light Mountain as the Holy Child.”
“Thank you sir!” Chen Rui looked very excited when he looked at the silver-white chain and the round badge that appeared in front of him. He stared at the chain, and he suddenly spoke up, “Sir Raphael, with all due respect, this artifact seems to be…”
“You actually see through it?” Raphael was slightly surprised, “Your eyesight is even better than I expected. You deserve to accept the ancient inheritance alchemy grand master. The ‘Chain of Mind’ is actually a part of a powerful artifact. Another part is called the ‘Shackles of True Flame’. The merging of the 2 can form a more powerful artifact, ‘Seal of Fire and Wind’. Even Pseudo-God may not be able to avoid its shackles. Unfortunately, this requires a special law merging. I have not been able to find the most suitable method, so the 2 artifacts are used separately. I gave the ‘Shackles of True Flame’ to others, but unfortunately, I lost it unexpectedly. Otherwise, with your grand master-level mechanics attainments, there is a good chance that the 2 will be merged into a true ‘Seal of Fire and Wind’.
“That’s the case.” Chen Rui’s regretful expression swept past. He took the Chain of Mind and the Holy Ring Badge, bowed deeply, and said loudly, “Thank you, sir! I, Arthur. Roland, swear by the great Light God that I will not disappoint sir!”
That’s right, swear by the little ** of the corpse in the Chaos Realm…
How could Raphael know the ‘Holy Child”s careful thoughts? Only when he had completely subdued the ant, a satisfied smile appeared on his slightly blurred face as his figure gradually faded away.
Sir Archangel didn’t see the ecstatic look in the eyes of a human who lowered his head – The Shackles of True Flame? That’s right, I will definitely ‘perform’ well, and you will never be ‘disappointed’!
Well, you’ve won all my favors, Sir Raphael!
In fact, Chen Rui didn’t see the specialty of Chain of Mind just now, but that some kind of power in his body had a kind of faint throbbing because of the Chain of Mind. It was strange that Raphael actually said it himself.
In the battle with back then, he used the ‘absorption law’ of the Super System to ‘devour’ the Shackles of True Flame. If he could ‘devour’ the Chain of Mind now, he could get the 2 purest and powerful law. As long as the 2 laws were truly integrated, even if he couldn’t get the ‘Seal of Fire and Wind’, he could produce a more powerful binding force than the Shackles of True Flame!
No doubt Gralin’s promise was effective. The dragons sent a representative to discuss cooperation about the magic game the next day.
An ‘old acquaintance’, the Holy Dragon Gueroas.
After some tacit ‘negotiations’, the 2 parties reached an ‘agreement’ on the distribution of benefits, then the Dragon Valley entrusted the Golden Estate with the signal towers and the magic helmet ‘technology’ needed to establish the magic game.
This kind of the magic game helmet was actually a simplified version, separated from magic television, and it only had a simple game function.
The long-prepared Golden Estate immediately began to produce the magic helmet and signal towers components, then they immediately handed over the produced signal towers components to the Holy Church who came to pick up the goods. At the same time, the church-led propaganda work began in full-swing in the human world.
The Holy Church’s faith coverage was extremely huge, and its influence far exceeded any kind of force. It could even be said that it was the sum of the entire human empire and kingdom.
For the magic games, it was equivalent to a terrifying commercial propaganda group. For a time, training, entertainment, glory, battle… and other magic game-related keywords spread all over the human world.
The storm of the magic game began to sweep the entire human world!
TL: He just gave away an artifact that could possibly bind him…
