Worlds’ Apocalypse Online Chapter 1682
The Space Vortex.
There was no wind, no circulating energy, no world, and no living beings.
Nothing had begun, nor had anything occurred.
This was an era before even the Age of Immemorial.
Within this Reality Gate, eternal Primal Chaos ruled over all things.
Up until the moment that a flash of starlight appeared——
From the darkness, cold starlight emerged from nothing.
This bit of weak starlight gradually became brighter, slowly phasing itself into numerous symbols that appeared like a waterfall in the darkness.
In a few short moments, all the symbols had slowed down, coming neat and orderly.
A line of text appeared in the void of space:
[Arrived at the corresponding moment in time]
Numerous tiny pieces of glowing runes the size of ants appeared out of thin air.
All the glowing runes then gathered together and manifested into a glorious glowing humanoid figure.
This humanoid figure seemed almost like a God, who gradually showed themselves to be a beautiful woman of rare beauty.
However, she appeared to be in pain, muttering: [My energy has been nearly exhausted, I only left aside enough energy to make one return trip, and if Gu Qing Shan doesn’t]
Another female voice rang out:
“No! He would definitely not let us down”
Following this voice, another glowing figure appeared and manifested into a human female in a modern military uniform.
She had long and silvery white hair with eyes full of determination while standing in the void.
Su Xue Er!
She drew a Card from between her hair and lightly shook her hand.
Instantly, the Card turned into a dark stage curtain that enveloped her and the other woman.
“How much longer?” she asked.
[After 73 hours, the frozen corpse will break through the Reality Gate and appear in this Boundless Void] the woman answered.
“Very good, we need to seize our time and make sure that neither the frozen corpse nor any of the other Apocalypses, as well as living beings, manage to find that item” Su Xue Er said.
[According to known information, its current location can be generally determined, but with my remaining energy, it would be impossible to bring it to the future] the woman said.
“Who said we’re going to bring it to the future?” Su Xue Er suddenly said.
Her gaze flickered with a slight hint of mischievousness.
The woman stared straight at her, then said: [Su Xue Er, your current level of evolution is already too high for me to guess your thoughts— what exactly are you planning?]
“If the legends are true, and if we can truly find that item, then we only use to use your abilities to destroy and seal it away, after which I will strategically place the fragments in certain points of history”
Su Xue Er continued: “This way, other than Gu Qing Shan, no one would be able to obtain the item throughout the extended flow of history—— even if they could, they wouldn’t know what it represents”
The woman was a bit confused.
Su Xue Er explained: “History is too long, we cannot possibly take care of it throughout the entire process, so this is the only way”
[Very well] the woman agreed.
Su Xue Er suddenly glanced at the woman.
“Has Gu Qing Shan given you a name since the previous time?”
“His naming skills have always been terrible, let me do it instead”
[I’m sorry, but you’re not worthy]
Laura angrily snorted, openly showing displeasure in her expression.
“Let’s leave things here, our empress only got careless that she was affected, don’t commit it to heart” Gu Qing Shan consoled her.
“That’s right, I still haven’t said anything about you silently observing my thoughts, you know” Liao Xiao Pao also said.
——he and Laura had both recovered and rendezvoused with Gu Qing Shan.
Having been through this battle that began without any warnings, the three of them were still a bit shocked, so they had stopped briefly to regain their bearings.
Laura turned around and lifted her head at a 45 degrees angle to the sky, pouting: “Unless someone invited this empress to a good meal, this empress won’t be soothed”
“Then I’ll make dinner, what would you like to eat? “Gu Qing Shan asked.
“A feast!” Laura immediately turned around and said as she held his hand.
Gu Qing Shan nodded, then turned to Liao Xiao Pao.
“There’s some for me as well?” Liao Xiao Pao pointed at himself.
“Then I want two portions of instant noodles, four intestines, five omelettes, a bottle of alcohol, and a tortilla—– just the kind of tortilla you know how to make is ok, I won’t be picky”
——first the Devil of True Antiquity, now these two gluttons, seems like I have quite a bit of heavy responsibilities with regards to preparing food.
Gu Qing Shan searched through the ingredients in his Inventory Bag while silently thinking to himself.
After too long later.
The food was finished and the three of them got to enjoy a hefty meal.
While they chat, Gu Qing Shan asked Liao Xiao Pao:
“Hey, Ironman, can you tell me how exactly you can use Realm Force to defend?”
“Defend? You’re capable of killing the Apocalyptic monster by yourself, why do you still need to defend?” Liao Xiao Pao asked in return.
Gu Qing Shan smiled and replied: “In truth, for close-combat Professions like mine, being assured of my own safety would give me quite a bit of an edge in combat”
Liao Xiao Pao nodded: “That’s true”
He stood up and chanted an incantation.
A colorful suit of armor appeared from the void of space, which scattered into components as it tapped it and reassembled on his body in just a few moments.
“There is a substance called Realm Mineral that can naturally guide the power of spirits to defend itself, an exceptional catalyst for power transference, but it’s also exceptionally rare”
“It was only after countless years that our side managed to come into contact with a small bit of Realm Mineral, which I used to mix with parts of my armor a little bit at a time to end up with almost half a set of armor——- over here, and here, ah, my helmet and leg guards as well, all of them were components that contained Realm Mineral”
“However, all the other parts of my armor were exchanged from other Realities, so their appearance and color were different”
“There’s a common name for this kind of armor, which is Spirit Realm War Armor!”
Liao Xiao Pao explained.
“Is this suit of armor very strong?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
Liao Xiao Pao chuckled, then said: “Whenever you fight against others using Realm Force, unless your enemies are also using Realm Force, they wouldn’t be able to fight you at all—– they won’t even be able to scratch you”
Gu Qing Shan nodded.
He understood that point very well.
During their time in the Gloomy City, nothing he did manage to cause much damage to the old man at all.
“——-Furthermore, while you and your opponent are both fighting using Realm Force, this type of armor that had been cast through refined Realm Mineral would also be able to passively absorb a spirit’s power to protect you, making it so that you could also defend against a spirit’s attack”
“You might even be able to use it to defend against a spirit during a spirit realm war, now you tell me how strong you think it is!”
After saying that, Liao Xiao Pao chanted his spirit summoning incantation.
The saintly heroic spirit girl appeared.
“I’m currently demonstrating defense using Realm Force to Gu Qing Shan and Her Highness Laura, please give me a hand” Liao Xiao Pao said.
Very well Tear replied.
Even without her doing anything, the armor on Liao Xiao Pao’s body began to glow in a bright holy light.
Liao Xiao Pao put his hands on his waist and said: “While being reinforced by the power of spirits, this suit of armor would do more than just defend me, as long as the armor isn’t broken, I shouldn’t suffer any sort of serious wounds, sometimes even preventing normally fatal wounds—- so, impressed?”
Gu Qing Shan and Laura both exclaimed.
Indeed, to be able to gather a full set of armor that was cast using Realm Mineral is quite rare Tear also smiled and praised.
Being praised like that, Liao Xiao Pao was silently glad when Laura slowly approached him and asked:
“So can I touch this armor for a little bit?”
“Touch? Hm hm, this isn’t some treasure that can be bought with money—–”
When Liao Xiao Pao was about to act arrogant for a bit longer, he noticed the smile disappearing from Tear’s face.
He swiftly doffed his armor and generously waved his hand: “But to be graced by your hands is nothing short of being its honor, please go head”
“Thank you very much” Laura told him.
Liao Xiao Pao snuck another glance at Tear and saw that her expression had returned to normal, she was even smiling towards him.
Liao Xiao Pao silently sighed in relief.
Laura then began to circle around and meticulously checked every detail of the suit of armor with her hands.
“How is it?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
Laura narrowed her eyes a bit and replied: “Hard to say in truth, ever since I arrived in this world, I’ve already had a certain feeling, even though there’s nothing but ruins all around us, I still have ‘that’ feeling, do you know what I mean, Gu Qing Shan?”
“If you put it like that, I really don’t” Gu Qing Shan was confused.
“It’s like, this really intimate feeling, the level of intimacy that I would only feel towards treasures that are exceptionally precious” Laura explained.
—–she rolled up her sleeves.
Gu Qing Shan muses: “That’s true, this world was destroyed by a kind of monster that can’t be seen or heard—– so there might have been something in this world that its inhabitants hadn’t managed to use in town”
“That’s right. After touching Ironman’s armor, this feeling was immediately amplified, it was like something was right at the tip of my hands, and all I need to do is reach my hands out—–”
Laura took a deep breath and plunged her hand into the void of space.
The empress had begun her collection!
Liao Xiao Pao looked at Laura, then at Gu Qing Shan and couldn’t help himself asking: “What are you going?”
“Shh—-” Gu Qing Shan put up a finger to signal him to be quiet.
Tear, on the other hand, knew what the two of them were doing.
The Bramble Bird bloodline was legendary throughout the Dusty World, so their abilities were all extremely well-known.
Furthermore, Gu Qing Shan’s ring as well as the ridiculous number of Holy Relics that Laura brought back before were also excellent examples.
Laura continued to waved her hand in the void while mumbling to herself:
“Not this one, not this one either, ah, this one barely qualifies, but it’s not quite at the level of Ironman’s armor, this empress won’t collect it. Where~ are~ you~, don’t hide now, for this empress’ sake—–”
“Come out now!”
She grunted and abruptly pulled out a full set of heavy armor that landed on the ground with a heavy ‘thud’.
As everyone turned to look at it, they saw that it was a pure-white armor with red lining. The armor instantly exuded a faint solemn presence as soon as it appeared, accompanied by flickering sprites of light that drifted around the armor.
This armor naturally began to float into the air from the ground, silently hovering in front of them all.
Liao Xiao Pao was completely flabbergasted while observing this from the side, muttering to himself: “This was forged completely out of Realm Mineral am I dreaming? No, I wouldn’t dream of something so ridiculous”
Laura was soaked in sweat and looked considerably drained.
Gu Qing Shan helped her stand properly and was about to say something when she pointed at the armor and excitedly called out:
“This is the first time!”
“My heavens, Gu Qing Shan, I managed to collect a complete set of Spirit Realm War Armor, I’ve never managed to collect an artifact of this degree ever before!”
“You’re the best” Gu Qing Shan praised.
Laura immediately approached the armor and circled around it a few times, then suddenly turned to Gu Qing Shan.
“This is a suit of Holy-attribute male armor”
“Gu Qing Shan, it’s an exact fit for you!”
Looking at the set of white and red armor, Gu Qing Shan also felt a bit nervous.
His degree of combat had always been extreme.
Almost no set of armor had been able to accompany him in battle for a prolonged period of time
“Let me give it a try”
Gu Qing Shan said, then placed his hand on the armor.
In an instant, lines of glowing text appeared on the War God UI:
[Battle armor: Embrace of Saint]
[Description: Holy One, Pure One, Judge, and Martyr. Only those with one of the aforementioned four Titles would be able to equip this armor]
