Another World’s Versatile Crafting Master Chapter 1085 | zhuang-bifan
With such an understanding, Lin Li became more and more eager about implementing his plan for the modification of the Sky Castle. Besides, he was almost certain that as soon as the modification of the Sky Castle was completed, it would definitely surpass the Sky Garden in all aspects.
However, before Lin Li could head towards the Eternal Tower in the center of the Sky Garden, he saw a figure with a powerful Sanctuary-level aura darting over from the Eternal Tower.
"Felic, how dare you set foot onto this place!?" The person who arrived was none other than Rosen, the deputy chairman of the Supreme Council. Besides, he had apparently also stepped into the Sanctuary-realm with the help of the magic tides. Hence, he seemed to be very confident when he met Lin Li again.
Rosen had suffered a huge loss when he failed to scheme against the Tower of Dusk and obtain the Tera Mine from them. His prestige in the Supreme Council had also dropped a lot. Originally, he could still contend with Chairman Andoine, but after that failure, many members of the Supreme Council had moved to Andoines side, causing Rosen to lose some authority. Besides, the more authority was lost, the lower his prestige. More and more councilors would then turn to join Andoine, causing him to fall into a vicious cycle.
It was impossible for Rosen not to hate Lin Li, but he knew very well that Lin Li enjoyed the protection of the three arbitrators, and he would not be able to do anything to Lin Li and the Tower of Dusk without a valid reason. When Lin Li left the Sky Garden, he even displayed Sanctuary-level abilities. Hence, Rosen dared not provoke Lin Li casually.
However, Rosen did not expect himself to reach the Sanctuary-realm in the magic tides, and immediately become the fourth Sanctuary powerhouse of the Supreme Council. Stepping into the Sanctuary-realm meant that he would be above all else and even become the fourth arbitrator of the Supreme Council.
As Rosen stepped into the Sanctuary-realm, the opinions of the people in the Supreme Council suddenly changed. Sanctuary powerhouses were qualified to become arbitrators, so a chairman of the Supreme Council was considered nothing. Even though the three arbitrators did not make changes to the personnel of the Supreme Council and Andoine was still the chairman, Rosen was more like the chairman during meetings. The proposals that he put forward were often supported by the vast majority of the members.
Rosen had been staying away from touching the Tower of Dusk only because he had scruples about the attitude of the three arbitrators. He had a vague feeling that the three arbitrators attitude towards Lin Li was not as simple as that of elders towards their juniors. There seemed to be something more to it.
Those concerns were the reason that Rosen hadnt passed any obvious motions that would be targeting Lin Li despite having gained control of the Supreme Council. He still had to wait and observe the attitude of the three arbitrators and wait to get some evidence against the Tower of Dusk.
While Rosen was experiencing the kind of powerful feeling brought to him by being in the Sanctuary-realm, he suddenly felt a Sanctuary-level aura that descended to the Sky Garden. Rosen was certain that the aura definitely did not belong to any of the three arbitrators, but it felt somewhat familiar to him.
However, no matter what, as the deputy chairman, Rosen had no reason to ignore the fact that a Sanctuary powerhouse had suddenly descended in the Sky Castle. Hence, he immediately left his residence, and since he didnt know whether the visitor was a friend or foe, he displayed his might as a Sanctuary powerhouse as soon as he appeared.
However, when Rosen saw the face of the visitor, his heart was filled with hatred and joy. He hated the fact that the person who came was Lin Li who had destroyed his favorite disciple and defeated him several times. However, he was glad that he had already obtained some evidence against the Tower of Dusk. Just as he was thinking about how to get Lin Li to go to the Sky Garden, Lin Li surprisingly showed up.
Looking at Rosen flying over aggressively and landing in front of him, Lin Li, who was stunned, asked in puzzlement, "So its you, Deputy Chairman Rosen. Isnt this the Sky Garden of the Supreme Council? As a councilor of the Supreme Council, why wouldnt I dare to come?"
"Good, good that youre here. Even if you didnt come, I was about to get someone to inform you to come over so that you can be interrogated by the Supreme Council for the crimes you committed." Rosen then looked at Lin Li. Despite being filled with hatred, he still acted like he was impartial and merely going by the book.
Hearing Rosens words, Lin Li couldnt help but look at Rosen again in bewilderment. With Lin Lis strength, he could naturally see that Rosens current so-called Sanctuary-realm power was actually the same as that of Elvis and others. He could only be considered a pseudo-Sanctuary powerhouse. The difference was that Rosen had, after all, the support of the Supreme Council, so he had a better understanding and mastery of the power of the Sanctuary-realm than Elvis and the others.
Could it be that becoming a pseudo-Sanctuary powerhouse was what gave him confidence? Of course, Lin Li knew that Rosen had always been at odds with him, and only piped down after the matter of the Tera Mine. He had behaved himself for three to four years, but was he going to act brazenly without scruples again just because he had become a pseudo-Sanctuary powerhouse?
Lin Li guessed correctly. Stepping into the Sanctuary-realm had indeed given Rosen a great deal of courage. In Rosens opinion, the reason that the three arbitrators valued Lin Li was because the Supreme Council hadnt had a new Sanctuary powerhouse in a long time. Now that Rosen was also a Sanctuary powerhouse, would the three arbitrators continue to protect Lin Li even though he had committed an unforgivable crime?
"Deputy Chairman Rosen, dont spout nonsense. Its not up to you to say whether I have committed a crime or not. I came here this time because I have to see the three arbitrators for something, and I dont have time to play this guessing game with you." If it was a normal conversation, it wouldnt matter much to Lin Li, but after hearing Rosen accusing him as soon as he spoke, Lin Li did not have the patience to continue wasting time with him.
Seemingly having been amused by Lin Lis words, Rosen sneered, and said in a low voice, "Councilor Felic, we still dont know if you can continue being a councilor of the Supreme Council. Hence, if you want to see the three arbitrators, please accept the interrogation process. If you cant even keep your status as a councilor, you will not qualify to see the three arbitrators."
To be frank, if Lin Li wanted to enter the Eternal Tower, no one except the three arbitrators could stop him. However, this was the Supreme Council, after all, and even if Lin Li didnt take Rosen seriously, he still had to show the three arbitrators some respect. After all, the Supreme Council had been established by Geresco and the three arbitrators, not by Rosen.
Since they were both going to the Eternal Tower, Lin Li decided to let him tag along! With a nonchalant smile, Lin Li said, "Sure, Chairman Rosen, please lead the way. I hope you wont waste too much of my time."
Seeing that Lin Li nodded, Rosen couldnt help but feel happy. He had to admit that Lin Li had come in a timely manner as he happened to chance upon the three arbitrators when they were busy with the spacetime rift. As long as Lin Lis crimes were confirmed, the three arbitrators probably would not be able to continue defending Lin Li in the future.
Together with Rosen, Lin Li arrived at the Eternal Tower in the center of the Sky Garden. Along the way, he wasnt affected by Rosens words at all as he constantly looked around to observe the layout of the Sky Garden. In particular, Lin Li was somewhat envious of the Eternal Tower that was constructed with the trunk of the Tree of Eternity.
Although the trunk of the Tree of Eternity had already died, the power contained in it was still considered inexhaustible. Besides, the Eternal Tower built with this tree was not only a Magic Tower, but also the core center of the Sky Garden. With the increase in the power of the Tree of Eternity, the power of the Sky Garden would definitely be increased several times or even a dozen times.
More importantly, the power of the Tree of Eternity not only allowed the Sky Garden to be filled with rich mana, but also increased the recovery rate of the mana sources of various facilities. For example, if a Legendary magical crystal was used in a Magical Crystal Cannon, the recovery rate of the mana would not be sufficient to keep up with the output, and thus would result in a malfunction. However, with the power of the Tree of Eternity, the recovery speed of the mana of the Legendary magical crystal was greatly enhanced. Perhaps even its foundation would not be affected when it was used in a Magical Crystal Cannon.
Under the inspiration of the Eternal Tower, Lin Li remembered that although he did not have any remnant of the Tree of Eternity, he had two Tree of Eternity seedlings that were still growing. If they were transplanted to the top of the Sky Castle, the benefits that the Sky Castle would obtain would probably be far greater than the Sky Gardens.
All that Lin Li was thinking about was the modification of the Sky Castle. Only when he heard someone call out to him did he snap out of his thoughts. Aldwin and Andoine were walking over towards the Eternal Tower.
"Teacher Andoine, Master Aldwin," Lin Li greeted smilingly.
However, Andoine did not immediately respond to Lin Li, and instead turned to look at Rosen with a frown. He then said to Lin Li, "Felic, why are you here? The three arbitrators have been busy with the magic tides and the spatial rift lately. Im afraid they dont have time for you. If theres anything, come again in a few days."
Andoine might have sounded a bit cold, but Lin Li, his student, had come from afar. Why would he just leave him alone? However, Lin Li could obviously tell what Andoine meant. He was trying to say that if Rosen and the others made things difficult for him, the three arbitrators wouldnt have the time to handle it for him.
However, Andoine obviously did not know about the deal between the three arbitrators and Lin Li. The reason for Lin Lis boldness was not the protection of the three arbitrators, and now he was only showing them some respect by following the rules. To be honest, no one in the entire Supreme Council except the three arbitrators could stop Lin Li if he wanted to break into the Eternal Tower.
"Chairman Andoine, what are you saying? Councilor Felic is here to be interrogated by the council. How can he leave without permission before the matter is settled? Youre councilor Felics teacher, so you should be asked to stay out of this matter. However, since youre the chairman, you should know to be impartial. Why dont you just stay at the side to listen?" Rosen was not worried at all that Andoines appearance would affect his plans. Firstly, there was a reason for this matter, and he had concrete evidence to back it up. Besides, more than half of the councilors had defected to him. Andoine could be considered a loner who could not stir any trouble.
"Rosen, do not forget the lesson you learned previously. The three arbitrators will naturally be the ones to question Felic. Arent you afraid of being punished for taking things into your hands!?" Andoine had no choice but to mention the three arbitrators. He knew very well that if Rosen really wanted to bring Lin Lis matter to the council for a vote, he was really too weak to stop it.
"Dont worry, Teacher Andoine, I was confused to hear them mentioning some crimes. Since the three arbitrators are not free now, I cant just idle about. Ill take this as a way to kill time." Andoine and Rosen had an intense conflict, but Lin Li did not have the slightest awareness. Instead, he persuaded Andoine.
Hearing Lin Lis words, the councilors who stood on Rosens side were infuriated.Kill time? Are such things meant to be time killers!? Hes so obnoxious, does he really think that the Supreme Council cant do anything to him!?
However, Rosen was still relatively calm, and was looking at Andoine with a mirthless grin. "Chairman Andoine, since councilor Felic is willing to be interrogated, why did you object? If you still have something to do, please go ahead and do so. Ill inform you of the outcome of the interrogation afterwards."
Andoine looked at Lin Li helplessly. He really couldnt understand the reason for his intelligent students moment of folly.Cant he tell the obvious intentions of Rosen and the others!?
However, he had no choice but to secretly grit his teeth, and say, "Sure, I will see what tricks you guys can get up to during the interrogation without me."
Andoine decided to go all out too. Since he even said those words directly, he was clearly on Lin Lis side. Regardless of what Rosen and the others could do, he had to stand up for his student.
