Chapter 313: Waiting for the Wind to Blow, Preparing to Attend the Banquet
Justin did not try to stop Vincent when he requested to leave. He just let him leave on his own.
This was because it was just as Vincent had said, Justin could not wait to grasp the power to modify authority. He did not even bother to try on the gown for the banquet later. He wanted to grasp the ability before the banquet.
After all, only an ability that had been completely grasped could be considered a true ability!
Vincent repeatedly pondered about everything that he had planned on the way home. He wanted to know if there were any flaws.
Only when he returned to the top floor of the Star Plaza did Vincent confirm that all his preparations were on point and that there would definitely be no problems!
Vincent had just walked to the door when he saw a manager from the Arena of Life and Death.
“Mr. Fire Asura, the Ultimate Evil Lord invites you and Miss Irene to attend the meeting tonight!”
After the manager saw Vincent, he stepped forward and spoke as if he was relieved of a heavy burden.
Vincent nodded and said, “Go back and tell the evil lord that I will be there on time!”
The manager nodded and left.
Vincent opened the door and returned to his room.
At this time, all the items in the room had been put away by Irene. There were only some things left in the room such as items that could not be used or packed by Irene.
Vincent returned to his bedroom and took out a heavy box from inside the wardrobe.
He opened the box and saw a pitch-black long knife laying quietly inside.
This was the nameless knife that the Ultimate Evil Lord had used to recruit Vincent. It was forged from a world. The weight it contained was equivalent to a world. It was very difficult for Vincent to wield it.
What made Vincent feel even more helpless was that this nameless knife could not be kept in his storage ring. Based on Vincent’s guess, it was probably because the knife’s rank had exceeded his storage ring’s limit!
The banquet later was very important but also very dangerous. Vincent could not miss it. He had to ensure that he was fully prepared. This was the time for him to use all his trump cards.
Vincent lifted the black knife’s hilt with his left hand and took out the Purgatory Blade using his right hand. He placed the two weapons together and said in a deep voice, “Devour!”
The Purgatory Blade instantly emitted a dark red light and began to gradually devour the black knife.
Ever since he witnessed the dangers and terrors of the Black Hole world, Vincent had never used the system’s ability. This was because the system was his trump card.
However, as he was at the final juncture, he had to use all means!
The Purgatory Blade had the engulfing ability bestowed by the system. It could fuse with all psionic weapons. If it could fuse with the black knife, it might be able to offset a portion of the black knife’s weight.
However, the process of devouring was much longer than Vincent had expected. It was as if he was really going to devour an entire world.
Vincent looked at the two weapons that were gradually fusing in his hands. He had no choice but to put them away. He then slowly rolled up his left sleeve and looked at the arm that was glowing with a golden light.
The Hand of God that the Protoss had given him could activate god’s strength after it was fully charged. The only time Vincent had used god’s strength was when he almost scared Jackson to death. He even took the initiative to take all the things on his body.
If he could use god’s strength again, then he would feel very secure at the banquet.
Vincent wanted the Hand of God to be fully charged. However, it still needed another four hours. As the banquet was about to begin, it was probably not the best time for him to wait until it was fully charged.
Following that, Vincent took out the remaining nine modification authority scrolls and spread them on the table in front of him. He said in a deep voice, “Modify the Rings!”
A sparkling light instantly appeared. The nine modification authority scrolls instantly turned into nine rings. Their appearance was basically the same as the storage rings.
These scrolls only had their appearance modified, but their functions had not changed. Therefore, as long as one crushed the rings, he or she could still instantly activate the modification authority scrolls!
Just as Vincent was putting on the nine rings, the two weapons in front of him suddenly merged together. A dragon’s roar was heard.
Vincent immediately raised his hand to grab the hilt of the merged weapon and slowly tried to pick it up. He could feel that it was still heavy, but the weight was within his capacity.
Vincent held the brand new weapon in his hand and looked at it carefully. The body of the weapon was long and straight. It was almost identical to the black knife. The pitch-black blade was engraved with fire cloud patterns, resembling a struggling and twisted soul. At the same time, the system listed the attributes of the new weapon in front of his eyes.
Weapon: The Return Journey of the Dead
Level: S-Class psionic battle blade
Evolution Progress: 0%
Attribute 1: The Return Journey of the Dead can be evolved by devouring psionic weapons.
Attribute 2: The Return Journey of the Dead has fused with the core of a world. It has the potential to be upgraded to a World of the Dead. At that time, it can become the key to opening the World of the Dead.
Attribute 3: Before the Return Journey of the Dead is upgraded, one can still use a portion of the power of the world. When the user draws his blade, he can summon the Purgatory of Nature, which has a range of 100 meters. Within the Purgatory of Nature’s domain, the user can control a portion of the power of the world.
Attribute 4: The Return Journey of the Dead condenses the power of a world. The blade will lose its sharpness, and at the same time, it will lose all of its offensive attributes. However, every time the blade is swung, it will be augmented by the power of the world, bringing with it immense power.
Vincent carefully looked at the Return Journey of the Dead. The blade was not sharp, and it even looked a little dull. However, given the weight, the sharpness was no longer important. As long as the blade could land on the opponent’s body, it would definitely break bones and tendons!
At the same time, the Purgatory of Nature that could be summoned seemed to have domain power. This made Vincent, who had an understanding of god-level abilities, feel that it was extremely important.
Vincent felt that it was extremely worth it to give up the sharpness of the blade in exchange for a chance to come into contact with domain power.
However, as the Return Journey of the Dead had inherited the black knife’s world status, it could not be stored in his storage ring.
Therefore, Vincent could only take out the original scabbard of the black knife from the box and put away the Return Journey of the Dead. He stood up and walked out of the door. He was preparing to head to the banquet!
When Vincent arrived at the Arena of Life and Death, the banquet had already begun on the top floor.
As the host of the banquet, the Ultimate Evil Lord could not wait for Vincent to come. He had waited for a long time. He could only turn his head to look at the high-ranking nobles who were present.
The Evil Spirit Race’s leader, Adolphus, the Bard Race’s leader, Marcus, the Feathered Monster Race’s leader, Kaeger, the Vampire Race’s leader, Justin, and the Star Race’s leader, Manfred were all present. They held their wine glasses and looked at the Ultimate Evil Lord with different expressions.
“Everyone, the bloody storm that you’ve stirred up in the capital of Ultimate Evil recently, don’t you think it’s a little too much? Do you really think that the scrolls on the streets are real?”
The Ultimate Evil Lord spoke to everyone in a deep voice while expressing the dissatisfaction in his heart.
Adolphus and Justin nodded in agreement one after another while Manfred watched coldly from the side. After Marcus and Kaeger looked at each other, they revealed a cold smile.
Marcus walked forward and said respectfully, “Evil Lord! I want to report that Adolphus is plotting against us. He is secretly cultivating and modifying his authority. He is the one who had caused the current chaos in the capital of Ultimate Evil!”
