Volume 18 Chapter 56 – Locked Treasure Chest
A black disc flew above the main continent. Luo Feng lifted two cups of wine within the control room.
“Night, Piercing Tiger.”
“Even though I wanted to save you two, I had no power.” Luo Feng said softly. “The evil of the universe caused two warriors to fall, and the strong survived. Let’s hope that I’ll see you again in the future.”
“True Yan and the Primal Chaos city leader told me before, there are dangers all around. One always has to be cautious. Back then, the master of the Yun Mo planet Hu Yan Bo had left one final saying to Babata to tell me, for me to always have respect for the universe and never get arrogant.” Luo Feng sighed. “This was formed from experience.”
“I had thought…a pinnacle emperor would be absolutely safe on Yan Ji continent.”
“I had thought…an emperor limit would be safe within the entire outer region wars.”
“I had thought…having teleportation would make it almost impossible to die.”
“But the fact of the matter is that within a tower here in the main continent, Night, Piercing Tiger, Ice Blade and Gold Cang…all fell. Even an emperor limit fell.” Luo Feng sighed, “And Gold Cang lost to one that was weaker than him, one cannot get careless at all.”
The results of the battle made him reflect a lot.
The special environment of the tower made it so that no one could teleport or scan, and this naturally resulted in such a huge loss. If they fought in the air above Yan Ji continent, Gold Cang who was proficient in time laws, he naturally wouldn’t be able to stop those proficient in teleportation. Those that couldn’t win would have long fled.
“Can’t be helped…”
“This is the universe, and just a small tower of the Yan ji continent. Like countless other dangerous secret regions, there are too many unknown dangers.” Luo Feng thought.
“No matter when, I must always be on alert, and never get arrogant. If I can get such a huge lucky encounter, other geniuses may have gotten them too, or even better.”
This battle ended with four emperors dying!
What kind of tragedy was this!
It made Luo Feng realize the importance of caution. When he got the Sha Wu Wings and King and general armor before, he had gotten confident and was proud. Just like how the city leader had regarded his encounters…his encounters were simply average.
The King and general armor only adds to his exterior strength. As his own strength rises, the usage would diminish.
“A call request?” Luo Feng frowned.
Virtual universe, within a bar of Hong alliance city, Luo Feng sat in the corner with another human.
“Tian Chen, why the rush to find me?” He looked at this human before him. This was a friend he had made for many years. Tian Chen had grown up in the same time as Night emperor, they were both core members of the Huge Axe Dojo. The two of them had always been rivals, yet it was a deep and complicated relationship.
“Yang, Night is dead.” Tian Chen’s eyebrows were very long, it made him look very serious all the time. He exclaimed, “Before he died, he left me a message, saying that Gold Cang killed him. He died on Yan Ji main continent and there are only three human emperors there including him. You are there too, and you are his good friend right. Do you know anything?”
“Right, he was killed by Gold Cang.” Luo Feng exclaimed. “He was forced by Gold Cang to self destruct.”
“Who is Gold Cang?” Tian Chen asked.
Even though Gold Cang was renowned on the main continent, he was afterall from another race, a warrior from the automaton camp. Tian Chen naturally didn’t know who he was. Even within the Hong Alliance’s over three million emperors, he only knew a small group of them.
“Gold Cang is dead too.” Luo Feng said.
“Wa…” Tian Chen was shocked, nodding, “Hm, life and death is part of the universe. Dying is inevitable. Come, let’s drink.”
“Ok.” Luo Feng drank with him.
Luo Feng didn’t wish to speak too much about the matter. Him and Purple Clock were fated to settle one day, he didn’t wish to drag Tian Chen into it. Whether it was him or Purple Clock, they both had huge amount of treasures on them with powerful survival tactics. And even though Purple Clock didn’t get the chest of the tower…he still managed to get close to half of all the other treasure.
The large amount of treasures represented huge wealth.
Purple Clock was completely able to buy flame god crystals and other treasures to strengthen himself.
“The next time we battle will be even more dangerous.”
“He is afterall an emperor that has killed an emperor limit.” Luo Feng didn’t dare get careless. He didn’t know that including Gold Cang, Purple Clock had killed two emperor limits in total.
“I have to think of a way to settle him.”
Purple Clock thought of Luo Feng as an enemy and was working on a way to kill him. Naturally, Luo Feng was doing the same.
Within his world ring, the mosha body and golden horned beast appeared.
“Tower chest.” Luo Feng saw the item right in the middle, the chained chest.
“All of the other items added together will still be far from this chest.” Luo Feng thought. “just the protection on it alone cost tens of billions of mixed elements. The treasure within must be shocking as well. Hm, let’s try and see if the mosha transformation can fake a Yan Ji person and open the chest.”
“If it’s not possible, then I’ll have to take a trip to Primal Chaos city to see my teacher and ask for his help.”
This chained chest, Luo Feng thought that even his teacher True Yan would have difficulty opening.
To the city leader however, it would be extremely easy.
Even though he did not want to bother his teacher, for the treasure within, he was willing to take the trip. His teacher would easily open it.
“Let’s give it a shot.”
Black clothed Luo Feng became energy and reformed into a six armed Yan Ji clansman. There were remains of corpses all about the tower before, and many of them were sector lord pinnacle bones, their strongest part of their bodies were the bones. Like the Yun Mo planet master’s disciple, even after tens of thousands of years, his gold bones were still perfect.
Sector lord pinnacle, their bodies were strong, they were the strongest part of the body.
The bones of a sector lord were closely compared to the body of an undying. Hence, in terms of decay, the bones could last a lot longer. Luo Feng had planned to deceive the chest into opening, hence he brought one of the bones back. Using its genetic makeup, he cloned the make up of a Yan Ji clansman.
The Mosha clansman changed its energy and took on one of Qiu Chi Ka.
Afterall, he had only seen one living Yan Ji clansman, Qiu Chi Ka. As for the fallen clansmen about…he didn’t have a guarantee as to whether a dead warrior’s energy would work. Hence he picked the living one he saw.
“Talisman.” Mosha Luo Feng flipped his hand to produce a talisman. It had his spirit imprint within. The three bodies all had the same imprint, naturally it recognized him as its master and melded with his body.
“Everything is ready.”
“Genetics, energy, talisman, I have everything. I wonder if it’ll work.” Luo Feng walked to the chest.
The twelve chains were still linked to the metal fragments and binding the chest shut. The chest had mysterious engravings all around. Luo Feng took a deep breath and extended his right hand to rub it.
The chest’s scanners activated.
“It must work, it must.” Luo Feng anticipated within. Even though he could easily get the city leader to open it, within, he would rather not if he didn’t need to. He wanted to rely on himself. Only if there was no other way, would he look for help to open it.
“I wonder how advanced this chest’s scanning system is. Let’s hope it works.”
The scanning system of the chest actually wasn’t as advanced as Luo Feng had thought. It only scanned two things. One was the talisman and the other was the life energy! As to the genetic makeup…different races naturally had different make ups, but there were ways to deceive it.
The life energy however was always different, different forms of life had different energies, different races had completely different energies as well.
Humans had different energies from each other.
However, among the entire race, they were still considered similar.
Humans, when compared to the bug race however had completely different energies, and this was almost impossible to imitate. Other than the very few special races that had special abilities, these natural abilities were things given to them by the universe. It was something that couldn’t be trained.
Pa! The lock on the chest began to loosen.
“Hahaha…” Luo Feng who was waiting anxiously revealed a smile and flipped it open.
Within the chest lay three world rings.
With a scan of world energy, he found that the three rings didn’t have a master.
“I’ll look at them one by one.” Luo Feng began to check the rings, sending world energy into the first one. This had a vast world within, there were metal mountains within and countless valuable liquid rivers. There were also many E grade ships, along with countless items almost like locusts.
All the goods were in huge numbers.
“This, this, this…” He was shocked.
He lifted the second ring and the third.
“This…I’ve struck it rich.”
“A race’s treasures, even when the Yan Ji race was still strong back then, this should still be a huge portion of it.” Luo Feng was shocked from the amount of treasure. He had no way to know that back then, the knights knew that they wouldn’t survive, hence they had placed all their wealth into the hundred true sacrificial towers.
This was 1% of the entire race’s wealth!
