“What did you say? A silver vortex has dragged away a large number of undead?” said the mysterious man at the Clock Tower Magic Association in confusion.
“Why would there be a silver vortex all of a sudden?” the group of people was dumbfounded.
The outside of the barrier was either drenched from the rain or covered by an ocean of undead. What was this silver vortex?
“It’s a turbulent flow of space, a space tunnel that can drag living forms into it and teleport them to somewhere else,” said Han Ji slowly.
Everyone climbed up to the observation tower. There was indeed a silver vortex spinning in the darkness on the outside of the barrier.
The silver vortex continued to drag the undead nearby into it. The undead that fell into it simply went missing. When the silver vortex disappeared, a huge clear space was left behind.
“Where did the undead go?” said Elder Chu Jia of the Hunter Union.
The silver vortex had only lasted for a short period. However, it had easily sucked around two thousand undead away. Although the number was nothing compared to the size of the undead army, it was still a strange phenomenon!
“So, can we still see how they are doing?” Du Xiao was more concerned about Mo Fan and the others.
They had proceeded onto the Nine Bridges of Death and One Bridge of Life. There were no copper mirrors on the bridges, thus they had no clue what the youngsters were up to.
“I think so, the Wicked Eye Copper Mirrors in the tomb are possessed by souls. They will follow intruders around. The copper mirror before has already flown toward the bridge that Mo Fan and his crew picked. I believe we can… it’s showing something, look!” blurted out Xie Sang.
Xie Sang’s copper mirror was showing a slightly curved land. As they were observing the place from high above, it felt like they could see the whole land.
“Look, what’s that?”
“Silver… a silver vortex?”
The people were stunned. The same silver vortex that had appeared outside of the city had also appeared in the space. Most shockingly, the undead that it had dragged away were now pouring down like raindrops, landing on the curved land!
“What…what the hell is going on?” Everyone was trying to make sense of this.
They soon discovered Mo Fan, Zhang Xiaohou, Liu Ru, and Su Xiaoluo on the ground, looking fairly tiny from their viewpoint. Initially, they were the only ones on the spacious land, but as the undead poured down like raindrops, the place was suddenly filled with a sinister atmosphere!
“I’m afraid… I’m afraid they have picked the Bridge of Death. They are now in the Space of Death!” Xie Sang stated glumly.
If they had chosen the right bridge, it would have led them straight to the altar. However, they had fallen into a unique space, implying that they had chosen the wrong bridge!
Space of Death!
The people who entered it had no chance of surviving!
“Does that mean they are trapped in there?” asked Yao Nan.
“A unique space must have an entrance and an exit, otherwise it would just be a dead space that’s impossible to enter. The space isn’t huge, roughly the size of the inner city, and there’s nothing else in there. It won’t be hard to find the exit…but, the silver vortex has suddenly brought around two thousand undead into the space, which are going to kill them…” said Han Ji.
“I could easily kill two thousand undead if I was there. Humph, I already said that they should have split up and picked a bridge each. Look what happened, they have ended up in the Space of Death. How can these little kids handle two thousand undead!” harrumphed Chu Jia in exasperation.
“I think they can handle around two thousand undead still,” said Yao Nan.
“I agree, Mo Fan’s strength isn’t comparable to that of an ordinary Intermediate Magician,” said Zuo Feng.
“How can an Intermediate Magician face two thousand undead at once? Do you think I’m stupid!” Chu Jia no longer had any hope. He seemed to be fretting.
The mysterious man and Han Ji both had stern looks on their faces. They felt hopeless after learning that the group had arrived in the Space of Death, not to mention the undead were about to end their lives…
“Chief Xie, does this mean the Bridges of Death aren’t really that terrifying? If they have an Advanced Magician among them, wouldn’t they be able to handle the undead easily?” asked Elder Ling Xi.
She too felt that it was unreliable to place the fate of the city in the hands of a few young Magicians. The situation would be totally different if a Super or Advanced Magician was with them.
“No, that isn’t the case. Describing something to be weak or strong is actually subjective. The dangerous places that the people are referring to will never pose a threat to strong Magicians. However, in the case of the Ancient King’s tomb, even a Forbidden Magician can’t be sure that he could enter the place safely. The reason is, according to the rules that the Ancient King set, the difficulty of the situation is adjusted based on the capabilities of the candidates. Although you’re only seeing a few thousand undead in the Space of Death now, it is only because their strength isn’t high. However, if you were the ones inside the Space of Death, the levels and the number of the undead will increase significantly!” said Xie Sang.
Most people in the tower were Super Magicians. They were more knowledgeable than Xie Sang, hence they immediately understood the situation when they heard Xie Sang’s explanation.
“It seems like the Ancient King isn’t only the founder of the Undead Element and an expert of the Space Element, he’s also an expert of the Chaos Element. I can’t even imagine how many resources he spent constructing the tomb! But I have to say that I’m impressed by his intelligence, even though the tomb was built more than two thousand years ago,” an aged scholar spoke up.
Only the Chaos Element could achieve the things that Xie Sang had mentioned.
Among the Dimensional Magic Elements, the Space Element was the strongest. The Summoning Element was the most diverse, the Music Element was primarily used for supporting and harassing, and the Chaos Element was the eeriest and the most unpredictable. These Dimensional Magic Elements were difficult to understand, let alone the complicated Chaos Element!
However, they were confident that the Ancient King was an expert with the Chaos Element, too!
“Around two thousand undead, hopefully they can make it,” said Han Ji.
“I feel like these undead are only just the beginning… even though the group’s strength isn’t outstanding, they are still in the Space of Death. There’s simply no chance for them to survive,” added Xie Sang.
Everyone fell silent upon hearing Xie Sang’s words. Han Ji subconsciously glanced at the inner city beset by the calamity. His eyes were losing hope…
