This priestess had plump cheeks and a high nose bridge. There was a faint light behind her back, exuding a very strong divine aura. Her flaxen hair was simply tied with a gold ring. Her snow-white upper right arm had a dark golden arm ring of bay leaves. She was dressed in a white priestess robe as if she had crossed over from the ancient Greek world.
The golden snake-head staff in her hand looked exquisitely crafted. The shape was 2 snakes wrapped around a golden olive branch. The snakes were ferocious. Even the scales were vivid. The snakeheads somewhat resembled a dragon head. The eyes seemed to be made of black pearls, shining brightly.
The praise of the Orpheus to the goddess was: “As gorgeous as a snake, a dragon with thousands form”, this golden snake-head staff must have come from this.
Her aura was also extremely powerful. Her appearance was quite similar to Theron, who was known as the “South African Diamond”, but her affinity was even greater. The eyes of this priestess were very bright, almost like a morning star in the sky.
She stared at Fang Linyan intently, then she said with a bright smile,
“Honorable Warrior, High Priestess Trigoneia pays respect to you! Thank you for your service to the goddess.”
Fang Linyan shrugged and said,
“Don’t be so polite, Your Honour. In fact, I am a non-believer. I do these things for the goddess just for the rewards promised before.”
After hearing Fang Linyan’s words, High Priestess Trigoneia didn’t take it seriously. She nodded and said,
“What the goddess has promised will be fulfilled. Your wishes will be fulfilled immediately.”
After she finished speaking, she raised the golden snake-head staff in her hand, and hhe could faintly hear the sound of sacred hymns. A virtual image of a lush green olive tree emerging from behind her, then it quickly disappeared.
The verdant fruit on the olive tree turned into reality in an instant and fell from the air.
High Priestess Trigoneia caught the olive fruit and handed it to Fang Linyan,
“Goddess has given you a rich fruit, and she has bestowed you immense power.”
Fang Linyan took this olive fruit and felt cold as if he was holding a piece of ice, but the scent emanating from it was fragrant and refreshing. He couldn’t refrain from putting it in his mouth.
The fruit turned into a cold and fresh juice and entered his throat without chewing. It was unusually sweet.
Then Fang Linyan got the prompt from the joint trial badge on his chest,
“You have successfully completed the mission: Trace Back to Origin.”
“Your Mission Evaluation: A+”
“You have an additional reward for the A+: The Holy Olive of Athens.”
“Athena’s priesthood is: war/wisdom/craft.”
“After taking, your strength+2/spirit+2/perception+2”
“Prompt: Your basic spirit has reached 14 without wearing any equipment. You are about to break through the human limit.”
“Prompt: Your basic strength has reached 14 without wearing any equipment. You are about to break through the human limit!”
“Prompt: Your dual attributes are about to break through the limit of human beings. You already have the conditions to become a contractor!”
“Prompt: Your dual attributes are about to break through the limit of human beings. It is not a breakthrough made in the state of dying, berserk, coma, etc., and you have a clear mind, so when you become a contractor, you will get a chance to enhance your talent.”
“You have obtained the god ability: [Athena’s Blessing].”
“Pray to the holy Athena, call her holy name, and sacrifice 80% of your current HP (this sacrifice will not be fatal, at least 1 HP will remain) in exchange for the protection of the ancient god. An ancient magic shield that forms with the combination of powerful magic and divine power.”
“In the next 30 minutes, any attack by the enemy against you will not be able to penetrate your magic shield, and your MP will be deducted first before the enemy can hurt your HP directly.”
“Any attack from the enemy on you will have a 5% chance of being blocked by Athena’s divine power.”
“The ancient magic shield is converted from caster’s MP. The defense is (your current defense+spirit). [Athena’s Blessing] has priority.”
“Additional Explanation: Some basic occult abilities can enhance this ability.”
“Additional Explanation: During the duration of [Athena’s Blessing], you will be protected by a mysterious and powerful force. Even if your HP drops below 10%, you will not enter the dying state, you will not be weak, and you will not be slow.”
“Warning: The way to improve this ability is very different from ordinary ability. You can’t use common points and potential points to improve it. You can only improve it through divine grace.”
“Warning: Once the ancient god falls, this skill will be erased.”
Seeing that extra reward, Fang Linyan was very pleasantly surprised. He felt that the goddess Athena was really generous, and that doing things for her was really rewarding.
Not only did he get the extra reward of the Holy Olive, but [Ancient God’s Blessing] even upgraded into [Athena’s Blessing]. The biggest improvement was to increase its duration to 30 minutes, and it also added 5% to evade damage.
Such duration was basically not much different from permanent.
Fang Linyan immediately realized one thing. His next purchase should focus on restoring MP or medicines that restored MP and HP together.
In this case, once [Athena’s Blessing] was used, he could heal himself up most efficiently.
After carefully studying the skills for a while, Fang Linyan took out his mobile phone and looked at the flight plan to run away immediately. He didn’t have to go back immediately, he just needed to leave Greece first.
But at this time, High Priestess Trigoneia said lightly after seeing his actions,
“Don’t go to the airport. An evil god has made a prophecy. His subordinates have sealed off the airport, and our current location has been detected. The evil god’s minions will arrive here in half an hour.”
“What!?” Fang Linyan raised his head suddenly, and he said in shock after a while, “You, why are you still here?”
High Priestess Trigoneia smiled and said,
“Why am I not here?”
Fang Linyan was stunned, then he rephrased his words,
“You, I, I, I thought you were just a virtual image just to communicate with me.”
High Priest Trigoneia smiled and said,
“Of course not! I have already learned the basic situation of this world from the faint power I absorbed before, so the goddess did not hesitate to spend her divine power to create a body for me. From then on, I will live here and once again bring those lost people into the arms of the goddess.”
“What a wonderful world this is, even the gods before could not imagine that just a population of Athens could reach the total number of people in Europe at that time. Not only that, from the data I got, the entire population of Asia has exceeded 4 billion!!”
Having said this, High Priestess Trigoneia had sighed excitedly, and her voice has a hint of fanaticism,
“Dear Father God, from the birth of gods to the time when gods were dormant, the total population for thousands of years was less than one-tenth of this number!”
“What’s even more wonderful is that among all these populations, more than 90% of them are non-believers and shallow believers. Do you know how vast this virgin land is?”
Fang Linyan shrugged and said,
“Sorry, I don’t mean to throw cold water on you, but the world is probably not as easy as you think. There are also several very large religions.”
Trigoneia’s smile seemed to be able to brighten this dark night,
“The goddess is known for her strategy. She has never been afraid of difficulties. Besides, no matter how difficult the situation is, can it be harder than the world we were in?”
“That is the twilight of the gods. The rise of magic has troubled the gods. Many gods have no choice but to enter the eternal sleep of death because of their lack of faith power… The stronger the gods, the earlier they fell asleep! In that case, even the goddess’ strategy was helpless!”
“However, here, in such a brand-new world, although the environment is harsh, there is no interference and suppression by magicians, and the potential for development is 10 times greater than in our previous world. Such a prosperous virgin land, even if there are dangers, so what!?”
After Fang Linyan listened to Trigoneia’s words, he also nodded with emotion and said,
“You’re right… then let’s hurry up and leave.”
Then he glanced at Trigoneia and said with a wry smile,
“I’m afraid you can’t walk the mountain road like. In this way, let my servant carry you. He is a mechanical creature and has no gender. You have to change your clothes too, otherwise it will be useless to hide anywhere.”
It turned out that Trigoneia was wearing the snow-white priestess robe of ancient Greece. She had a flaxen retro hairstyle. Her snow-white calves were exposed below, and she just stood there barefoot. She was also holding a golden snake-head staff…
This kind of dress was definitely impossible to walk on the mountain road. They also had to ride the electric bike later. If the others saw it, they would think it was a movie shooting or cosplaying. The attention will definitely be high.
But Trigoneia smiled slightly,
“No need to be so troublesome. Lend me your smartphone.”
Fang Linyan handed over his smartphone, then she started to open the search engine directly. She poked the screen with her slender snow-white fingers. After more than 10 seconds, she returned the mobile phone to Fang Linyan, then a white mist began to wrap around her body.
TL: He really has to fight god/the enemy of god…
