The monastery was originally a place for the clergy to penance, so the furnishings inside were very frugal. However, this place could be regarded as a benchmark among monasteries in the country, similar to the University of Oxford in the universities and Shaolin among the temples. Therefore, the core chapel looked high-end in its bones.
Not to mention the exquisite porcelain products, the grand and dignified colonnade, the beautifully carved arches, the colorful glass, the towering spires, just the portraits of the kings, queens and nobles hanging on the walls could tell the special.
These portraits seemed to be ordinary, but in fact, they were all painted by famous painters. Any painting could be sold for a huge sum of money. The statues standing beside directly moulded according to the faces of the noble kings after their death. They were absolutely real and vivid.
Although this place had just been nested by the Mother of Cave and there was an indescribable stench in the air, they were still subconsciously infected by the atmosphere.
Fang Linyan, as a hired guide at this time, couldn’t be left behind. Suddenly, he heard a noise in the room on the right. When he walked in, he realized that there were actually 3 priests were wrapped in white silk from head to toe, only 2 breathing holes were opened from the positions of their noses.
There were also corpse remains next to the silk sac, which looked a bit like a giant mantis, but only most of the shell was left, so it was not easy to distinguish.
They were apparently food stored by the Mother of Cave. They were mostly fainted by the paralyzing venom.
However, it was a member of the church knights who made the noise. He was obviously strong and powerful, so he successfully resisted the paralyzing venom. He struggled frantically when he heard the sound outside, which really attracted Fang Linyan’s attention.
The spider silk that wrapped them was extremely tough, and there was a lot of mucus on it, so they could only burn with lighters little by little. After rescuing these people, everyone in the team had gained a significant amount of the royal dragon knight reputation.
After killing the thunderbird before, Fang Linyan’s relationship with the royal dragon knight had been promoted to friendly (2500/3000). After rescuing these 3 people, the reputation had soared to friendly (2950/3000). He needed only a little reputation point to promote to respect.
The members of the church knights are called Dolan Knights. After being rescued, they are in good condition, but the other 2 priests were in a fainted state. Fortunately, Robbie was basically sure that their lives were not in danger because the Mother of Cave liked fresh food. Therefore, the injected paralyzing venom would only make them enter a state like suspended animation or hibernation, which allowed the victim to survive for at least a month.
Knight Dolan and 2 other priests were members of the visiting faction, “Franciscans”. Their original plan was to come to the headquarters to ask for an exorcism relic, but they unexpectedly encountered such a dangerous sudden event.
Then Robbie injected them with drugs, which should wake them up in a short time.
When Knight Dolan heard that they were looking for Archbishop Molegni, he told them that the Archbishop’s residence was indeed in the back.
However, there was another terrifying land creature infested in this area, that was, the Insects of Death.
These insects with the talent of soil magic could walk freely in the soil just like fish swimming in water. They had an extremely keen hearing and could perceive the sound of footsteps hundreds of meters away to judge the size and weight of the prey.
Then, they abruptly attacked the prey from the ground. First, they spat acid to blind the prey, then using the mouthparts full of ring-shaped teeth to tear off the large pieces of the enemy’s flesh and devoured it greedily. It also possessed the entanglement of snakes ability. These insects also had a very sinister habit. It would hunt down all the nearby animals that could be killed, then gathered them together. This was due to their powerful digestive system, which allowed them to eat fresh meat, and dead meat also tasted better for them.
Knight Dolan and the others were attacked by 2 Insects of Death, then they were separated from the team. Finally, they had no choice but to bump into the lair of the Mother of Cave.
So, Knight Dolan wanted them to be mentally prepared because Archbishop Molegni was likely to have been killed.
At this time, with Knight Dolan leading the way, Team Fantasy also advanced quicker. Soon, they passed a gorgeous patio with huge fan-shaped aiglets. The hanging crystal clear and gorgeous stalactite dome combined the Gothic architectural style with this unique arch style, which was spectacular.
There was also a 100-year-old vine in the patio. It was blooming now. The flowers were fragrant. There were also red and white roses covering the entire wall swaying slightly among the green leaves. This was a magnificent scene of flower sea.
However, as if to confirm the words of Knight Dolan, there was an obvious bucket-size deep hole in the originally smooth and neat terrazzo. There were several splashes of blood next to it. The blood had solidified, and it seemed that the victim was killed for a while. This was clearly the work of the Insects of Death.
After turning around the corridor, Knight Doran pointed to a very ordinary small room in front of him and said,
“This is the Archbishop’s room.”
Fang Linyan breathed a sigh of relief when he saw that the door was closed.
Then they came to the door. After knocking on the door a few times, they found that there was no response. Lipper and Donov looked at each other and kicked the door open at the same time.
The scene inside the door was startling. It turned out that Archbishop Molegni was lying in a blood pool unconsciously. Fortunately, he seemed to be breathing weakly. However, there were 2 bucket-size deep holes in the middle of the room!
Obviously, Knight Dolan’s prediction was not wrong. These 2 hungry and ferocious monsters would hunt down all the animals in the vicinity, but he guessed the beginning but not the end. These 2 dangerous giant insects that made him run away were also lying in this room. Ine of which had been burnt and smoking, and the other was torn into 3 pieces.
After witnessing this scene, of course, it was necessary to give first aid to Archbishop Molegni, but in the eyes of the rest of the people, it was not uncommon for the archbishop to have a strong fighting power. The shock shown by Knight Dolan was a bit too much.
However, Archbishop Molegni had 2 injuries in total. He was bitten on his chest, and his back was also sprayed with the acid of the Insects of Death, so they had to take off his coat to save him. When Fang Linyan poured the medicine powder on the wound, he suddenly noticed something.
After simply bandaging the archbishop’s wound, the 2 priests who stayed outside also woke up. Needless to say, they returned with the way they came.
Although there were occasional twists and turns on the way back, with the expert Robbie leading the team, they did not encounter too much trouble. They only encountered a group of flying snakes and a few moss dogs that were attracted by the smell of blood. It wasn’t hard to get rid of them.
When they escorted Archbishop Molegni to the square, the Team Fantasy was excited and restless. To be honest, this feeling of completing the mission ahead of the rest was really cool. Of course, the main mission reward was also very rich.
Although Fang Linyan didn’t get the reward of the main mission (because he didn’t have the main mission), he still got a prompt. Rescuing Archbishop Molegni had promoted his dragon knight reputation by 2 levels in a row.
From friendly (2900/3000) to reverence (0/16000), it was equivalent to directly crossing the intermediate level of respect.
Not only that, but the relationship between him and Archbishop Molegni had been elevated to friendly level.
After the dragon knight reputation was promoted to reverence, Fang Linyan immediately exchanged the coveted Order of the British Empire (limited to 1 piece) at the quartermaster.
Order of the British Empire
Place of Origin: Hargreaves Factory, UK
Equipment Rarity: Black

Explanation: When forging this medal, the quenching craftsman ignored a process, which made the entropy of toxins retained in the black iron ore exceed the standard, so it will have a certain negative impact on the wearer.
Inscription: “For God and the Empire”
The reason why Fang Linyan coveted this medal was because the specific attribute of this medal once again strengthened his survivability, Although it also weakened his attack power in disguise.
At this stage, Fang Linyan’s acting style was still focusing on surviving. If he could choose not to fight, he wouldn’t. So, the equipment that enhanced his survivability was the best. After all, he could do more damage by surviving, so the weakening debuffs didn’t change anything.
Then, he exchanged 10 Dragon Knight Can Foods.
At this time, Team Fantasy had almost finished their work and came to Fang Linyan. They traded the last remaining 4000 common points, and Fang Linyan’s common points reached about 14,500 at this time, which was the second highest he had.
