Swallowed Star - Chapter 809 Information on Blood River Crystals
Translator: Translation Nation Editor: Translation NationAt dawn, mist engulfed the river.
On an island within, Luo Feng lay within the hot springs, and was relaxing his body, when True Yan suddenly contacted him.
“Hurry over to my palace on Lightning island.”
Virtual universe Lightning island, countless undyings within the Virtual Universe Company stayed here, True Yan’s palace was one of them.
“Your majesty, his lord is within.” A guide showed Luo Feng the way.
“My disciple, hurry in.” True Yan’s voice boomed from within.
Luo Feng immediately entered.
With a glance, three warriors were sitting around a table within. One of them was True Yan, another had feathered wings and gold eyes, while the last one was a huge silhouette, almost like black mud.
“Teacher.” Luo Feng shouted respectfully as he entered.
“Haha…” True Yan smiled, “Let me introduce you.”
“These are other race warriors. This is Desire emperor and this is Black heart emperor.” True Yan pointed at the feathered warrior and then the black mud like warrior. All of them wore a smile, of which the feathered warrior Desire emperor smiled and said, “This is your disciple True Yan, and the disciple of the primal chaos city leader. True Yan, you don’t have to introduce him, his reputation is quite wide spread.”
“Hm.” The black mud like warrior nodded.
“Disciple, sit.” True Yan pointed at the chair beside.
Luo Feng sat down.
“I’ve already arranged everything for you.” True Yan explained, “The grade puppet and the 1.53 million puppets will all go to desire emperor. That apparatus…will go to black heart emperor. The prices have been set, Desire emperor is willing to give you 1.8 billion mixed elements. Black heart emperor is willing to give you 4.3 billion.”
Luo Feng nodded within.
The automaton puppets were easily accessible to such powerful warriors. The Virtual Universe Company was willing to give him 1.5 billion, the highest it could go would probably be about two billion.
Hence, 1.8 billion was already very high, the puppets were after all common items.
The Nine absolute god country apparatus however was a rare item. Although it wasn’t worth much to people uninterested in the automaton weapons, to the collectors however, it was a true treasure. They could dissect it and carefully analyze it…studying their methods.
“Luo Feng.” Black heart emperor said, “Do you know anything about this apparatus?”
“This is one portion of the device used to set up the Nine absolute god country.” Luo Feng immediately explained. “When set up, even a pinnacle emperor would be trapped within…and combined with the special automaton puppets within, it can unleash several special attacks, its power is absolute.”
“Hm.” Black heart emperor’s eyes gleamed, nodding as he smiled, “Trap? Attacks? Let’s immediately begin the exchange then.”
“Alright.” Luo Feng nodded.
Luo Feng discussed with the two emperors and swiftly confirmed their method of exchange…using the Virtual Universe Company as the middleman to deliver the goods and confirm the exchange. The commission for such a deal would usually have a high of 1,000 mixed elements max, lowest being one mixed element. For such a deal…
As both black heart emperor and Desire emperor were both outside humanity’s territories, both deals were charged 100 mixed elements as commission.
Compared to the deal involving 6.1 billion mixed elements, this was nothing.
After the deal was settled.
Both emperors were interested in getting along with the primal chaos city leader’s disciple, they were after all races subservient to humanity. Even as generals for humanity, they mostly used mixed elements as their currency. Since humanity has such a large influence on them, a being such as the city leader…was looked up to and worshipped by them too. It was a pleasure for them to talk to Luo Feng.
They chatted and ate.
During the banquet, a team from the company in reality went to collect the goods from Luo Feng.
The goods were confirmed!
Black heart emperor and desire emperor naturally transferred the funds.
“Hm?” After the banquet, Desire emperor suddenly stood up as he was discussing his experiences in the secret region.
“What’s the matter?”
Black heart emperor and True Yan both looked at him shocked.
Luo Feng was curious too.
“The Hong alliance has opened a blood river crystal auction! It will begin immediately!” Desire emperor said softly, his eyes suppressing his excitement.
“Blood river crystal auction? The other two emperors were shocked.
“Hmm, we’ll see if I can get any this time.” Desire emperor’s eyes were filled with anticipation, after which he smiled, “True Yan, you are already pinnacle emperor, almost akin to a knight…don’t fight with us for the crystals.”
“Blood river crystals are effective even for knights, why shouldn’t I fight for them?” True Yan mocked.
“Bring it! Anyway, there will be many others.” Desire emperor shook his head, “Let’s go participate in the auction.”
“You two go on ahead.” True Yan said.
“Luo Feng, we’ll be leaving first.” The two emperors said their goodbyes and rushed off, vanishing from the hall.
Only True Yan and Luo Feng were left behind.
“Teacher…what’s with the auction for blood river crystals? I remember they are banned items, banned from deals, auctions etc.” Luo Feng asked.
“Ah, right, you’ve been to Blood river continent.”
True Yan smiled and nodded, “You must remember one thing, anything that is banned, is all only relative. Even the most valuable items, they may be banned for sector lords, but the undyings can still make deals! If they are banned for undyings…the knights may still exchange them freely, the term ban is only relative to different levels.”
“Ah.” Luo Feng nodded.
It was as such.
“Hong Alliance is an alliance led by humans with many other races, naturally many valuable items will appear.” True Yan said.
“The blood river crystals?” Luo Feng couldn’t help but ask.
Absorbing them was extremely hard. A human absorbing ten crystals was already unbelievable, what would be the benefit of auctioning them?
“Why are even the knights fighting for the crystals?” Luo Feng asked, “Absorbing them is extremely hard.”
“Of course it’s hard.”
“At sector lord level, the body’s genetics are evolved to its limit. A human absorbing ten crystals is already unbelievable.” True Yan laughed loudly. “However, the crystals…these are condensed crystals of the Beast god’s essence, they are crystals of its blood.”
“The Beast god is a being akin to a knight, and as a powerful natural beast of the universe, with gold and space infused within its body, the crystals’ wonders…do you think there’d simply be just one way to absorb them?”
Luo Feng was stunned.
So that was it…the crystals were essences, condensed blood of the beast god?
“The crystals have many uses, with huge benefits even to the knights.” True Yan nodded. “However humanity’s upper echelon has a strict control on these important items, usually only supplying them to the strongest! Hence very rarely would there be a few blood river crystals circulating to be auctioned. These crystals…are important treasures to any blood and flesh life form.”
“Every hundred crystals form a unit, because a hundred of them can form one drop of the beast god’s blood.” True yan said.
“However…I’m currently at the emperor pinnacle level. What I lack is the law comprehension, external treasures are useless to me. Hence, I won’t bother fighting for them.” True Yan smiled, “When I become a knight, I’d probably have to go fight for some too.”
“Haha…the blood river crystal auctions normally attract many powerful warriors, I’ll head over just to join in the fun. You should return.”
Luo Feng replied, “Yes teacher.”
True Yan vanished from the hall.
“Blood river crystal? A hundred of them can be condensed into one drop of the beast god’s blood?” Luo Feng muttered. “A true treasure to any flesh and blood life form, one that even knights will fight for?”
“Back then, the Virtual Universe Company gave us universe level punks a low price of 600 points for one crystal.” Luo Feng smiled weirdly. Shaking his head, “Seems right, we were simply universe level punks, they needn’t give us too high a price. To them, they already gave us a chance to acquire the crystals. How would the little punks know that these crystals were incredibly important treasures to the emperors and knights.”
Luo Feng vanished too.
A hundred crystals could be condensed into a drop of the beast god’s blood, and it was hard for the universe level geniuses to acquire even a few of them. Luo Feng, who was supposed to be a universe level, had a powerful domain lord clone proficient in assassination, the mosha body…
This was too rare.
And back then, he had used the mosha body to steal close to 10,000 crystals.
Back then, facing the 600 points per crystal price, he fought hard against his desire for more points. He was sure that these crystals were true treasures and that he shouldn’t sell them.
“Haha, I never would have expected the uses and benefits of the crystals would be that important in the future.” Luo Feng walked out of the hot springs. The water flowed off his body, the chill from the air made him comfortable.
He casually lay in a chair.
The more he thought of it, the happier he got.
Wise, he was wise to keep all the crystals, this was a fortune.
“Back then my universe level human body only absorbed three crystals. Now that I’m sector lord pinnacle, and I’m trained in the nameless manual, my cells have evolved.” Luo Feng thought. “It’s time to try absorbing the crystals again.”
It had been many years since he last tried.
As it was too hard to simply absorb the three crystals last time, with the Black warrior… even a being, a legend within the history of blood river continent, he always thought he would never reach ten crystals. And without reaching ten crystals, the rise in his power would be limited. Hence, he never gave it another shot, just like that…a few thousand years had passed.
