Swallowed Star - Chapter 829 Decision
“Gold…gold armor?” The worker stared hard with disbelief. This gold armor had been displayed here for a long time with no one buying it. There were some in the management of the treasure hall that suggested getting rid of it or lowering the price, however no suggestion ever went through. It remained here and its price stuck at five billion.
“Dear customer, please wait.” The worker said, going to call the owner of the first level. It was a seductive looking human lady with gold curly hair, her sleeve had the mark of three stars
A three star warrior!
The lady smiled at Luo Feng, “Let’s go in and talk.”
Luo Feng nodded and entered a room behind the shop, and the two of them sat opposite to each other.
“Let me introduce myself, I am Can xin emperor, the secondary owner of the treasure hall.” She said.
Luo Feng nodded silently.
“It’s rare to meet someone who wishes to purchase the gold armor.” She smiled. “I will warn you, there have been many that have purchased it before but none have ended well, and five billion is not a small amount…”
Luo Feng nodded.
He was pretty wealthy, however he still wasn’t able to simply dish out 5 billion for a worthless item. This however was an armor that was similar to the soldier and general armor, one that even a knight would find hard to destroy. It was too obvious that this was a higher level version of the other two.
Even if it meant selling everything, he had to buy it!
“I’ll buy it.” Luo Feng said.
“This is the contract.” The lady said. “With the virtual universe system as witness, both parties will sign and you will immediately transfer the funds to us after. If we do not send it to you within the time, you’ll be refunded ten times the amount.
Luo Feng and the lady signed.
Luo Feng immediately transferred the five billion to the Universe treasure hall account.
“I hope to remain anonymous within your records. I don’t wish for anyone to know I purchased the armor.” Luo Feng frowned.
“Relax.” The lady said confidently, “Our treasure hall has a confidentiality clause. Of course, if you reveal it yourself, you cannot blame us.”
Luo Feng got up and left.
The lady watched as he left and she vanished from the hall.
Virtual universe, a space opened specially for a knight.
The lady appeared within a vast ice land, and in the center was an ancient palace. It was completely empty within, but on the surface of the ice outside the palace, sat an old man.
“Palace master.” The lady stood before him respectfully.
“What huge deal did the treasure hall do?” The old man looked at the lady. This was the palace master of the treasure hall, a knight level being. Normally only huge deals would require him to appear personally.
“The gold armor has been sold.” The lady said.
“That useless broken armor?” The old man said curiously.
“Yes.” The lady replied.
“Who bought it?” The old man asked.
“He didn’t reveal his identity, leaving only his virtual universe contact number to contact and receive his goods.” The lady replied. “And it’s very hard to search for his identity from his number.”
“I can’t do so either, naturally it’s hard.” The old man waved his hand, “You may leave.”
The lady vanished.
Only the old man was left in the vast ice land. He frowned, “A lousy gold armor is worth five billion, why does the master value it so much? The master ordered that the price would remain at five billion, and to inform him immediately when someone buys it. Is this armor truly that mysterious?”
Was a true absolute being of the pinnacle race of humanity, he was the true owner of the Universe treasure hall.
Virtual universe, within the highest palace on thunder island surrounded by chaos energy, a silhouette appeared outside. His body was demonic like a mountain, long with a dragon tail, along with eyes that seemed to hold the entire universe within. Just standing there alone, he gave off a huge force that shook the space about.
“Primal chaos city leader.” He stood outside and said, his voice reaching into the palace and resounding within.
“Long Yan, why aren’t you coming in?” A calm voice resounded from within.
One was enough to shake space.
One was calm like the ocean.
“Without your approval, how could I dare barge in?” Long Yan’s voice was booming as he mocked before entering.
The chaos energy parted naturally, revealing a pathway, allowing Long Yan master to easily see the primal chaos city leader in his throne. Long Yan was straightforward…walking straight towards the throne beside and sitting down, “I’m here because of the Yan Shen race gold armor.”
“That armor?” The city leader’s eyes gleamed, “Long Yan, have you found the way to duplicate it?”
“No.” Long Yan shook his head, “That creator was simply too powerful. To make these armors in bulk, even after so many years of studying it, humanity still hasn’t created a single one.”
“Then why have you come?” The city leader asked curiously.
“Someone has bought one of the gold armors.” Long Yan master said.
The city leader looked at him. So what if someone bought it? He knew too…Long Yan purposely set the price at five billion, mainly to force those without confidence to give up on it and those with confidence of using it only to buy it. They may have had some encounters that allowed them to use the wonders of the armor.
However to tell him personally, could it be…
“The buyer of the armor is your disciple Luo Feng.” Long Yan master said.
“Ah…” Even though he had guessed, many thoughts had rushed through his mind as Long Yan confirmed it.
“Your disciple is from earth, and the humans of earth were nurtured by that great creator.” Long Yan said. “The Yan Shen race was also produced by the same creator…I’m afraid, your disciple may have a way of using the gold armor.”
“So what if he does? How many gold armors are there within the race?” The city leader shook his head. “The most important thing for the race is to study how to make the armor in bulk, studying the Yan Shen race’s limitless amplification Royal armor. Just a few sets of the gold armor alone is useless for humanity.”
The city leader and Long Yan master…such absolute beings, how far did they see.
The way to create the Yan Shen race’s most powerful Royal armor was the only thing they were looking for. It was obvious that the Yan Shen race could make it in bulk, there was obviously a way to do so. It was a pity even after killing many Yan Shen warriors, and searching their souls, using all methods, they still haven’t found the answer.
“Haha…I won’t bother about your disciple then, you as the teacher can manage him yourself.” Long Yan boomed. “If he discovers any important secret in relation to growing humanity’s strength, that would be a huge contribution.”
“Hm.” The city leader nodded, “Leave it to me.”
“Has your main body returned?” Long Yan suddenly asked, his expression serious.
“Not yet.” The city leader shook his head.
“Be careful.” Long Yan said seriously, “Don’t fall.”
“Even if I do, I’ll use my clones to make another body, using some energy and time.” The city leader said.
“How many energy crystals are required to make another body of yours? And how much time? That’s a huge blow to humanity. And the loss of your body for such long periods of time has a huge effect too, you are an important strength to our race.” Long Yan smiled, “Don’t get too crazy, know when to retreat.”
The city leader nodded.
“I’ll be leaving.” Long Yan turned and vanished.
Within the palace, the primal chaos city leader sat in the throne, Long Yan had been gone for awhile.
“Even though Luo Feng had created a pinnacle technique, his law comprehension is average.” The city leader frowned. “Even relying on the Sha Wu wings…he is still very weak, however the strength he displays is shocking. Even not relying on the wings, he still has a high emperor’s strength. I always knew he had some special encounter or treasure, and from the looks of it…it should be the Yan Shen race’s soldier and general armor.”
He was very disappointed.
It was because even though the soldier and general armor were powerful…these were created in bulk by the Yan Shen race. They may give him the strength of a god and were extremely useful during his undying phase. However as his strength grew, the effect of the armors got less and less useful. They were only useful in bulk!
It had a temporary effect on one only.
“I thought he had some great encounter, or got some treasure produced by the universe, or from before the big bang…” The city leader shook his head. A true treasure was supposed to get stronger as a warrior’s strength grew, like the Sha Wu wings in the hands of an undying could only unleash average strength.
However in the hands of a knight, it was terrifying.
At the universe master level, it was still useful.
This was a true treasure.
“This is only a conjecture.”
“We’ll see if he can really use the gold armor.” He said softly. “Maybe he cannot use it and has some other hidden things. But, if he can use it, it also means he has a special way of using armors from the Yan Shen race.”
Humanity knew of the way to use the armors long ago.
They couldn’t copy it. Other than the Yan Shen race, no other races could use it. Just like back during the first few wars, countless undyings were reduced to nothing, and countless fragments of the soldier and general armors were broken apart and mixed in the remains. The humans later on never discovered these fragments, thinking them as part of the debris.
And as the gold armor wasn’t completely destroyed, it was valued and treated as a treasure.
