Chapter 256: Mysterious Call (Part Two)
The number one palace of Blood-Edge was really magnificent. It took a lot of space; it looked like a small public square. Although a portion of it was destroyed by Fei’s Fireballs and the wooden furniture were burning, the structure of the palace was still fine.
Fei carefully inspected his surroundings. He then summoned the huge wand from his set items [Arcanna’s Tricks] and grasped it in his hands. He slowly walked towards the huge throne decorated by two huge lion statues.
“A little leader of a mercenary group dares to sit on the duel-lion thrones that only canonized kings of affiliated kingdoms qualify to sit on. How dare he?”
Fei sneered as he waved his wand.
Air-piercing noises sounded as four Fireballs smashed onto the throne. In the loud booming noises, the entire white stone throne was blown into pieces.
Slowly, the stone dusts settled.
A secret pathway with a mysterious gate appeared behind the destroyed throne. The pathway was dark, and Fei didn’t know where it led to.
On the side of the gate, there were numerous mysterious silver patterns engraved on it; they were a type of strange magic arrays. Didn’t matter the magic pathings or the gate, they were really different from the current styles. After Fei carefully observed the gate, he realized that this gate was made from a huge piece of stone, and it was completely inlaid onto the opening of this pathway. This piece of stone was obviously from another era; it had an ancient feel to it, and it didn’t match the feel of the pathway at all.
However, the magic patterns on the gate gave Fei a familiar feel.
Fei’s intuition told him that this gate was a good piece.
“Let me save if first……” Although he didn’t come to a conclusion, Fei switched to Barbarian Mode and used his brute strength to break the gate off of the pathway. Then, he threw it into his storage space.
After he did all of that, he walked into the pathway.
The summoning call he sensed a little early unintentionally came from this pathway.
The pathway was really thin; only one person could fit through while slanting his or her body. Stone steps slowly led to a deeper and gloomier underground. After walking down for 50 meters, the pathway slowly got wider. Light shone ahead as the treasure lit up the area.
Any regular person would pace himself or herself if he or she suddenly saw such bright lights in this thin pathway.
However, Fei stopped.
He could tell that although the walls looked normal, there was a dangerous sensation. Even Fei was scared by this sensation a little.
Fei didn’t expect Blood-Edge would have such a scary hidden cave.
Fei thought about it and switched to Assassin Mode.
Out of all the seven classes, the assassin was the best at making and destroying magic traps. It was the best option in this situation.
Under Assassin Mode, Fei clearly felt that there were numerous traps of all kinds hidden on the walls ahead. Those traps were delicate and well-hidden; if one wasn’t professional, even a six-star warrior would be at a disadvantage. If this warrior was unlucky, he or she would be killed.
Fei slowly walked forward.
He was trying to clear out some traps, but he didn’t clear all of them. He created a strange path that only one person can walk through.
“Strange…… these designs are really interesting, but the execution was garbage. Looks like someone who didn’t know much about magic traps set them up as he or she tried to mimic other traps……” Fei slowly discovered some strange facts. There were so many traps in the area, but the power of those traps decreased because the number was too many; some of the connected traps were set up incorrectly. It seemed like the person who set up this place only went after the numbers and didn’t know much about the interconnectedness of the traps.
This part of the pathway that was about 50 meters long took Fei 30 minutes to get through.
Fei didn’t trigger any traps, and he didn’t leave any footprints; it looked like no one walked pass through this pathway yet.
