Gamers Of The Underworld Book 2 Chapter 576 | blue-white-sky
Sherlock became the star of the banquet.
As a Dungeon Lord of a remote Dungeon, the things he achieved had gone beyond astonishing.
He saved Winterfell many times and defeated Devil King Mammon from Hades recently.
Though Mammon was at fault and was being investigated by the Devil Management Committee, he had faded into the background while Eternal Kingdom was in the limelight.
To the Underworld creatures, status was a barometer of power.
They were proud to have created order in the Underworld. As for the powerful Eternal Kingdom, the Underworld creatures were full of respect for the Dungeon, especially the young superior Devil, who was protected by a godly halo.
Even when Sherlock was helping himself at the buffet, many Devils and Gnome Lords went forward to greet him.
As a gentleman, Sherlock smiled graciously at all the guests. However, he wasn't there to socialize.
"Lord Sherlock, I'm greatly honored by your presence."
Alexandria approached Sherlock and stayed by his side.
"Previously, while I was in Winterfell, I didn't have the chance to talk to you. Venice provides a good opportunity to catch up with you."
"Mr. Alexandria, you don't have to be so formal. I'm here mainly to taste the delicacies," Sherlock replied earnestly.
Alexandria smiled and said, "It can't be helped, because I have a favor to ask of Lord Sherlock."
"Let me guess."
Sherlock sipped the fragrant bloody chrysanthemum tea from a metal teacup before saying, "Are you asking for the Dungeon Core?"
Sherlock spoke frankly as he sipped the tea.
"Can I invite Lord Sherlock to come with me?" Alexandria asked politely.
Sherlock nodded. Though Polio and Brainiac wanted to follow him, Sherlock put up his hand and gestured for them to stay.
Only Bru spoke incessantly in Sherlock's mind. "Lord Sherlock, what have you done secretly? Have you investigated Alexandria? Didn't you say that you had no information? Since Alexandria knows about the Dungeon Core, could he be one of the members of the Ancient Gods army?"
Bru asked the questions impatiently, but Sherlock didn't reply to him.
Sherlock followed Alexandria to the interior of a manor. The sounds of the outside banquet became very soft due to the thick walls.
A few Succubi who were dressed provocatively stood by the side. They were ready to provide services on short notice.
Alexandria waved his hand to dismiss them.
He then sat down on the sofa and looked at Sherlock as he said, "Lord Sherlock, I admire your capabilities. In the recent battle, you defeated Devil King Mammon from Hades. It was totally unexpected. I believe Mammon wasn't angered by your efforts to stop his construction. I'm more inclined to believe another rumor. And that is the report that you submitted to the Devil Management Committee."
Sherlock folded his arms and said, "It seems like Mr. Alexandria is very well informed. If I'm not mistaken, my submitted report is only accessible to a few creatures. I didn't expect you to read my report."
Alexandria laughed and said, "My father is the Grand Duke of a Northern Dungeon, so it's not surprising that we get to know a few things. I'm an avid collector, and I feel that the Dungeon Core of the Ancient Gods army is a worthwhile item for my collection. If Lord Sherlock is willing to give a price, I'm willing to pay for it."
Sherlock patted his thighs and said regrettably, "If you had asked earlier, I might have sold it to you. However, my Dungeon Core has assimilated the Dungeon Core of the Ancient Gods army."
"I see. That can't be helped. It's a great pity."
Alexandria was disappointed, but he didn't talk about other things. Sherlock asked curiously, "You invited me here just to ask about the Dungeon Core? You could have just sent me a letter."
"Of course not. There's another matter. I'd like to inform Lord Sherlock that I've become the Dungeon Lord of Venice. Though Venice is quite a distance from Eternal Kingdom, I hope to collaborate with you in the future when the opportunity arises."
Alexandria stood up and made an invitational gesture as he said, "Since I'm unable to purchase the valuable Dungeon Core from Lord Sherlock, I'll have to find another opportunity to do business with you. Since the banquet is still ongoing, let us return back to the Banquet Hall."
"Thank you. If the opportunity arises, I hope to do business with Mr. Alexandria. Wrong, I have to call you Dungeon Lord Alexandria," Sherlock said as he stood up and followed Alexandria back to the banquet. Along the way, they discussed the Dungeons and recent news in the Northern Underworld.
For example, the television sets that were selling like hotcakes in the dungeons, as well as the broadcasts of the battle scenes in the Gladiator Arena. They created a renewed interest in Gladiator Fights in the Underworld.
Many Underworld residents went to the arena to watch the battles of the Gladiators from Eternal Kingdom.
The live battles were extremely brutal. The Underworld residents who were unable to watch the broadcasts were very excited by the live battles.
It was obvious that Alexandria was very knowledgeable about Eternal Kingdom.
When they returned to the Banquet Hall, Alexandria waved to Sherlock and left the hall.
He was getting ready to give his speech.
At this moment, Bru said to Sherlock, "This fellow has been investigating us. He has an ulterior motive for obtaining the Dungeon Core of the Ancient Gods army."
"Since he wanted to buy the Dungeon Core, why don't we sell it at a high price? Why did Lord Sherlock lie to him and say that the Dungeon Core had been assimilated?
"To be honest, it would be very exciting to see the revival of the Ancient Gods army. The Underworld would descend into an inferno of strife and bloodshed. You could make use of the gamers to establish a new order!"
Though Bru's suggestion was constructive, Sherlock wasn't receptive. He said, "Bru, assign the missions. Let the gamers work in Venice. I think it's time we expand into a new dungeon."
