Hartchy’s eldest son was used to being prodigal. It was common for a group of men and women to have a chaotic “party” in the manor. Usually, the butler would handle it. Therefore, the butler wasn’t surprise with Fang Linyan’s sleep pattern. It wouldn’t even be a problem if Fang Linyan wanted him to get some contraband.
As long as Hartchy didn’t speak, he would entertain guests with the warmest attitude.
So it didn’t take long for Fang Linyan to have a large table of exotic dishes in front of him.
Although Greece was also one of the ancient countries with a long history, its food culture was much simpler compared to its long and rich history and art.
Basically, it was light and fresh. Even the seasonings were olive oil, garlic, sea salt and lemon that were abundant in the local area.
For example, the signature appetizer Greek salad was fresh vegetables and fruits seasoned with olive oil, pepper, and non-heart cheese. The taste was mainly based on plump and juicy tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, and red onions without any leafy vegetables.
Another example was a large plate of “souvlaki”, which was actually a kebab. It was even oven-baked instead of open-baked.
The staple food was “mushaka”, which was made of minced meat, potatoes, and eggplants that were stacked layer by layer and then baked. It tasted similar to mashed potatoes.
However, although the taste was slightly uncomfortable, for Fang Linyan, a workaholic, he was already happy to have something to eat. The more important thing was that he didn’t need to pay and clean up the dishes, so he really couldn’t complain about the taste of the food.
Of course, in the face of the OUZO anisette the butler brought, Fang Linyan simply declined it politely.
Although this thing could be called the national wine of Greece, for anyone working in a high-precision industry, alcohol was their archenemy.
Because this thing could make people’s hands tremble. Some people who had been drinking for a long time would even lose their grip to the point where they couldn’t hold chopsticks properly.
Just when Fang Linyan was eating, there was a knock on the door, then Goneia’s unique magnetic voice sounded,
“Can I come in?”
Fang Linyan waved at the servant standing at the door and told him to open the door.
Soon, Goneia walked in, looked around Fang Linyan’s room, stopped for a moment on the pocket lathe and parts beside, and then smiled,
“Are you used to living here?”
Fang Linyan’s mouth was stuffed with food, and he mumbled vaguely,
“For me, wherever there is machine oil, a lathe, parts, it’s my home.”
Goneia smiled sweetly,
“Sure enough, the more you succeed, the harder you work.”
Fang Linyan picked up a glass of water, gulped it down, and said inarticulately,
“En, there is a saying that never goes to the temple for nothing. You should be very busy now, so you shouldn’t be here for a casual chat. Just ask if you need anything, I will help within my ability. After all, our interests are tied together. I also need your help if I want to improve this godly skill.”
Goneia gave a rare sigh and said,
“It’s not tiring to talk to smart people. It’s like this. Now I have contacted about a hundred believers, then I found that if I want to preach on a small scale, the current situation is fine. If I want to spread the word on a large scale to let lost people bath in divine grace, I have to show miracle.”
Fang Linyan nodded after listening to Goneia’s words,
“Yes, after all, you are fighting against the 3 major religions that have spread in this world for thousands of years. Their images have been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and their teachings are well known. If there is no special place, it is very difficult to compete with them. So, how can I help you?”
“I want that energy crystal on you.”
“Energy crystal?” Fang Linyan was stunned for a moment, and he immediately understood that she should be talking about remaining magic core.
At that time, in the trade with Cavendish, 1 of them was a bag of magic cores. Most of these things were traded by Fang Linyan for potential points. He only kept the largest and purest one for himself, which was like a crystal that sealed a fire in it.
The biggest value known to magic core Fang Linyan so far was to trade for the royal dragon knight reputation. However, he had already left that world at this time, so he basically did not know its specific use. He could only hope to see if there was a chance to sell it to those who might need it in the future.
Using something that could not be realized in such a short period of time and completely bet on luck, in exchange for a stable income that Goneia owed him a big favor, Fang Linyan immediately felt that he must have made a profit.
So, Fang Linyan took out the magic core without saying a word, threw it to Goneia and said curiously,
“This thing is useful to you?”
Goneia put the fiery red magic core in her palm and smiled sweetly after getting what she wanted,
“Of course, with it, I can use the magic power contained in it to cast some scared spells. If nothing else, there is no problem in casting the LV1 or LV2 scared spells.”
As she spoke, she had already taken out the snake-head staff and was chanting, then she bit her finger and dripped a drop of blood on it, which directly penetrated into the golden staff.
With the nourishment of this drop of blood, the 2 golden snakes on the staff actually came alive, meandered toward the fiery red magic core and ate it in a few bites.
Not only that, the black eyes of these 2 golden snakes had turned fiery red like they were carved out of rubies. The snakes also spat out forked red tongues from time to time.
After the 2 golden snakes climbed up on the staff again, Fang Linyan felt that there was something more on the staff. After a closer look, he realized that there was actually a layer of crystal clear brilliance on the surface. Under the illumination of the light, it also gave people the feeling of “slowly flowing”. Even if it was motionless, it also made people know that it had come alive.
Witnessing this scene, Goneia also exclaimed in surprise:
“I know what your magic core is! It should be the magic core of a phoenix, so that in addition to the abundant fire element, there is an unprecedented majestic vitality in it. In this way, the effect is better than much better than I expected!”
Fang Linyan said curiously,
“Then what’s so special about your staff now?”
“Let’s put it this way, my original intention was just to recharge it, but now that the 2 snakes devoured the magic core, they immediately mutated.”
As she said it, she handed it to Fang Linyan. However, even if Fang Linyan used [Reconnaissance], he still couldn’t detect its specific properties. It only showed “limited plot equipment”.
Later, after listening to Goneia’s explanation, Fang Linyan realized that this thing had now been enhanced with 2 scared spells:
The first scared spell was: [Disease Dispel],
The second scared spell was: [Mass Blessing]
[Disease Dispel] was originally a LV2 scared spell, and its effect was to cure common diseases (normally just needed 5-6 days of hospitalization), relieve serious diseases (normally needed 1 month of hospitalization), and basically ineffective for terminal illnesses.
However, because Goneia was equivalent to the direct spokesperson of the goddess in the world, the related scared spells she displayed could be automatically upgraded. The [Disease Dispel] was upgraded to LV3. Its effect could cure ordinary and serious diseases. It was even effective for terminal illnesses.
The [Mass Blessing] was a LV1 aoe scared spell. If Goneia cast it, the effective range was quite amazing. It could even reach the size of half a football field!
It was equivalent to the comprehensive poor version of the 2 magics of [Rejoice] and [Primary Luck]. In simple terms, the subject would feel happy and comfortable in a short period of time (within 3 hours), and he would encounter something lucky within 3 days.
For example, free meal ticket, winning a lottery of a few hundred and being praised by boss.
However, it must be noted that the [Primary Luck] couldn’t give luck out of nothing, but it only advanced such lucky events that you would obtain in the future.
Therefore, for those who were well versed in this way, they were disdainful of [Primary Luck]. They even considered it a scam, but there were not many people in this world who were well versed in this way…
Not only that, after using these 2 scared spells, they would be replenished regularly.
The replenishment interval for the first scared spell was: 3 times/1 week. The second scared spell was an aoe spell, so the replenishment interval was 3 times/ 1 month.
To be honest, these 2 scared spells look quite ineffective in Fang Linyan’s eyes, almost useless, but for Goneia, which aimed to preach and gain believers, it was a godly tool!!
The [Disease Dispel] could show miracles to those who had been plagued by disease. Based on this alone, Goneia could target the development of believers with great power and wealth.
The second scared spell was aimed at ordinary believers. Performing a “miracle” such as [Mass Blessing] at a gathering of thousands had a pleasant and immediate short-term effect. It also had an intermediate effect of encountering something lucky in 3 days. Such brainwashing ability could only be described as OP.
Thinking of this, Fang Linyan couldn’t help looking at Goneia’s plump and beautiful cheeks and sighed.
“As a high priest like you, you have really surpassed 100,000 ordinary priests! Why don’t the rest of the true gods also get an image spokesperson like you?”
