Chapter 300: Form: Part 1
“Eula, the Sunstrider of Hades?”
Of all the people present, Lin Sheng was the only one who saw the giant monster for the first time.
After they went around, Lin Sheng saw the reason why she was called a monster.
On the back of the Sunstrider, there were large dense blisters filled with magma. The blazing heat was constantly released from the blisters. Lin Sheng felt that the heat radiated from the blisters was even hotter than the magma pool below.
They walked over the arch bridge over the magma pool.
The principal smiled and pointed at the huge sun-seeker. “In all, Miga put down more than ten such monsters. Almost a lot of famous universities, with a little bit of history, have this guy. Do you know how that magma pool under your feet came about?”
“Do you mean… It’s all coming from this Sunstrider?” Hao Ren guessed.
“Correct. You must have sensed the direction of the flow?” The principal nodded with satisfaction. “I didn’t believe what your mentor had said about your talent. But now it seems that you’re better than I thought you were.”
“Thank you, but I’m not that great.” Lin Sheng smiled and lowered his head.
“No, you are.” The principle waved his hand.
They continued going forward.
Auldmandiller gave Daisy a quick glance, looking proud.
“Tcht!” Daisy just ignored him.
After crossing the arch bridge, they soon came to a large stone wall behind the Sunstrider.
A triangular hole was opened in the wall, and a guard in white thermal suits bowed to them.
They went into the hole and down a long underground passage. The temperature in there was not as hot as outside.
Not long after, they came to the end of the passage, and a round hole appeared before them.
“Just a moment.” The principal smiled and clapped his hands.
In the rumble, a big black mouth slowly arched from the ground, a big mouth made of countless black stones and mud. In the mouth was a spacious room shrouded in soft yellow light.
The principal marched in first, followed by Auldmandiller and Daisy, and then Lin Sheng and the girl.
The room was an oval conference hall, which has already been filled with many people.
Most of the people sitting there were older people. Lin Sheng looked around and found that even the youngest one looked at least fifty years old. And for this transcendent world, it was not unusual to live longer. In other words, almost everyone in this room looked a lot younger than they really were.
The principal took the principal’s seat at the far left while Auldmandiller took Lin Sheng to a middle seat. “Don’t talk. Just listen,” he whispered.
Lin Sheng nodded, knowing that he should not talk on this occasion.
“Well, everybody’s here. Let’s start the meeting.” The principal smiled and clapped his hands, catching everyone’s attention. “As before, the first thing to start with is weapons. Are there any new breakthroughs?”
A curly-haired old man in a vintage court robe stood up with a stiff face. He took the transcript from his assistant’s hand and began to read it carefully.
Lin Sheng listened for a short while and then lost interest.
They’re talking about extremely detailed development digital information, interspersed with technical terms and acronyms that the outsiders would not understand. Moreover, on such occasions, it was impossible for them to detail the most confidential information.
Instead of focusing on the content of the meeting, he began to observe the conference room.
In the conference room, there were small iron bookshelves next to the corner filled with magazines and small books. One of the bookshelves was right behind Lin Sheng.
Behind the professors, assistants and students were bored with their own work. Some looked at their notes carefully, some yawned sleepily, some sat staring into space, and some had fallen asleep with their backs against the wall.
Lin Sheng quietly took out a book from the shelf and began to read.
“Suncrown, Moon Basin, and Asterism”
He chose the one he was most interested in, which was a comprehensive introduction to Miga’s dark energy institution.
The first thing the book introduced was the Asterism that connected the ordinary and the extraordinary. There were not many strong Transcendents inside the Asterism. This agency served primarily as the transcendental police and their main task was to deal with the general conflict within the city.
Then, there was the Moon Basin.
The Moon Basin was the most powerful body in Miga. There were not many men in it, but they were all strong, with a truly formed armed force. One had to at least be at the level of a Two-winger to qualify for the Moon Basin. There were also Palatinates inside.
The Asterism would apply to the local university for support in case they could not solve the problem. If the local university could not solve the case as well, they would get help from the Moon Basin. That was the process.
The last one was Suncrown.
Suncrown was standard research institutions. It was also the most mysterious agency and completely out of touch with the ordinary Darksiders. It was said that Suncrown was the ultimate agency suppressing the entire Miga, but very little information released from it.
Soon, more than half an hour had passed. The meeting also began to relax. Obviously the most troublesome and serious cases had been discussed.
Auldmandiller was chatting with the people around him and looked back to see that Lin Sheng was reading.
“A lot of our graduates are sent to the Moon Basin, military, or Asterism. You should have a look at the inside information in advance. If you don’t go back to Xylond, in your case, you will definitely go to the Moon Basin,” said Auldmandiller.
“Why doesn’t this book mention the names of the Palatinates?” Lin Sheng asked softly and carefully.
Auldmandiller laughed. “What’s the level of the Palatinates? How can a general book reveal such secrets?”
“I didn’t hear anything about the messenger when I was in Xylond, so I’m curious. I wonder how many Palatinates are there in the entire Miga?” Lin Sheng asked.
“On the surface, we have six,” an old bald professor answered with a smile. “Miga has the most Palatinates in the world. Because we are guarding the biggest secret realm in the world.”
“Is it related to the size of the secret realm?”
“Yes.” The old professor nodded. “It’s no secret, and Palatinates did not mean to hide their whereabouts. But the Palatinates, like our principal, are considered rare in the whole of Miga.”
“Yes, our principal has done too much for this university.” Auldmandiller nodded and sighed.
Their conversation soon led to past events.
