Chapter 838 Inheritance of a Primordial One and Tes
You have used ability [Bold Explorer] on [Spacetime Amber]!
You have received the following information…
Everything in his sights suddenly shattered into pieces. His vision was pulled away, and he flew out of the Star System and the Star Field. As if he rode the river of time on an amber boat, he started seeing images of the past.
The next moment, his vision suddenly pulled in like he was falling from the sky. The pieces reformed into an image in front of him—it was a person.
A video started playing before his eyes. This person was on a planet. Beside him were countless enemies, and above him were fleets that shrouded the entire sky. With every movement this person made, an impact wave of energy emitted from his body and froze spacetime, freezing countless spaceships and Supers.
The images were as if Han Xiao was there when it happened. He knew that the person in the image was the Primordial One who became the Spacetime Amber, and these images were the past of the Spacetime Amber.
“I see. So, this ability’s method of relaying information is to let me see some images directly. That’s quite similar to the Destiny’s Child Character Summon Card I once had.”
Very soon, this Primordial One met a strong opponent. This time, the image of the battle fast forwarded and skipped the details of the battle, arriving at the results—the consciousness of this Primordial One was heavily damaged, his soul was shattering, and he was at the doorstep of death.
Another Beyond Grade A friend of his arrived and guarded him while retreating.
This time, this Primordial One whose consciousness was already blurry suddenly grabbed onto the shoulder of his friend.
“I’m done for. Don’t let my body fall into the hands of the enemies.”
The expression of his friend was hidden behind his armor as he pressed onto the body of this Primordial One without hesitation and activated his ability.
This Primordial One lowered all his defenses and did not resist at all. His body crystalized at a visible rate, gradually shrinking into a palm-sized crystal, and was thrown into the cosmic space by his friend.
At this time, the images stopped, and Han Xiao regained his focus.
“Hmm, although I knew about this long ago, if I didn’t know, this would basically have uncovered the origin of the Spacetime Amber. That’s quite an important piece of information. The ability’s effect is quite good.”
Han Xiao nodded. This effect was suitable for finding out hidden factors and could even be used multiple times on the same target, each time supposedly getting different pieces of information. If used enough times, there would be a high chance of finding out all the information about an unknown object or matter.
As for the sixty-percent Luck decrease for fourteen days, Han Xiao ignored it completely. His Luck was only one to start with, and it would never become negative, so it made absolutely no difference.
Since the test results were accurate, Han Xiao planned to use this on that set of wormhole data EsGod wanted after the cooldown ended. If he was not able to figure it out the first time, he would use it multiple times until he did.
At this time, a notification popped up on the interface and broke Han Xiao’s train of thought.
You have triggered the Hidden Chain Mission [Inheritance of a Primordial One—Spacetime Freezer].
Mission Introduction: Through some means, you came to know that it turns out the Spacetime Amber is the remnant of a Beyond Grade A. He is one of the Primordial Ones—Spacetime Freezer. You have received his inheritance. If you can fulfil his wishes, you will have a deeper understanding of the Spacetime Amber.
Round One Mission Requirements: Find out the wishes of the Spacetime Freezer.
Reward: +1 Soul Connection with the Spacetime Amber
Han Xiao was puzzled.
What the hell is this mission? I have never even heard of it before!
How was this hidden mission triggered? Oh, I get it.
Han Xiao figured out very soon after being surprised for a while.
Although he had known about the origin of the Spacetime Amber since long ago, personal memories had zero influence on the interface. Only when he obtained information through his actions would the interface recognize that as him fulfilling the prerequisite of the hidden mission.
By using [Bold Explorer] and seeing the images about the origin of the Spacetime Amber, he had triggered the mission.
In his previous life, no player had ever obtained the Spacetime Amber, so of course, no one knew that this mission existed. He was the first person to ever trigger this mission.
As for the Soul Connection, Han Xiao knew what it was. It was more common among Mages and Psychics, and it could be understood as the affinity with a certain object. For example, the higher the Soul Connection one had with a certain item, the more powerful that item would be when that person used it, and the easier it would be for that person to control that item.
There was an example right under his nose—Psyker and the Evolution Cube. Having controlled the Evolution Cube for such a long time, Psyker had planted a deep psychic mark on the Evolution Cube long ago and could receive benefits from the Evolution Cube that strengthened his psychic power. This was because Psyker’s Soul Connection with the Evolution Cube was very high.
In Han Xiao’s previous life, this function only became available in the later versions, and only some special equipment or items had Soul Connections. However, this was not absolute. If a player had a normal object on them all the time, they might still be able to create a Soul Connection with that item.
“I’m not a Psychic nor Mage, so god knows when I would have formed a Soul Connection with this thing. This mission skipped the hardest part for me. From a certain perspective, the Spacetime Amber is basically the body of that Primordial One. The fact that completing his wishes increases my Soul Connection with the Spacetime Amber might mean that I’m more accepted by his body. Hahaha.”
Han Xiao grinned and opened the interface. There was now also a new field under the item description of the Spacetime Amber.
Spacetime Amber Soul Connection: 0/5
With such a reward, Han Xiao was more willing to complete this mission.
Although the Primordial Ones were from a very long time ago, as the first batch of Beyond Grade As, information about them was quite rich. Many institutions were passionate about studying them. Spacetime Freezer was not someone unknown, so it was easy to obtain information about him.
As for the wishes of Spacetime Freezer, Han Xiao was not worried about not being able to find out. According to the way the interface worked, he did not really have to study the life of Spacetime Freezer. As long as he had actions of browsing through data about Spacetime Freezer, the interface should treat it as him completing the requirement and give him the next round’s mission requirements.
While he told Phillip to research online, Han Xiao also started to build a simple control device for the Spacetime Amber.
As long as he could establish a Soul Connection with the Spacetime Amber, not only would he be able to receive benefits from this Universal Treasure, but he would also most likely be able to control the Spacetime Amber with his mind. However, he had yet to receive the reward, so he needed a mechanical device to use the Spacetime Amber.
Han Xiao finished building it very quickly.
The Spacetime Amber was covered in a black, spherical device. This device could activate the energy of the Spacetime Amber and allow Han Xiao to control it with his mind. At the same time, it also had functions of a hovering guard such as flight, shield, and others.
With a thought in Han Xiao’s mind, he controlled the Spacetime Amber to hover and activated the device.
A small hole cracked open on the spherical device. The next moment, invisible energy shot out from the hole and started to change the properties of an area of space. The area of influence slowly expanded. When Han Xiao stopped the energy output of the Spacetime Amber, only then was this area solidified into amber.
“The output of the Spacetime Amber seems to be fixed, and the speed of creating amber is quite slow. At this speed, it would take many minutes to create the amount of amber needed to cover a two-meter-tall creature. Plus, the area only turns into amber when the energy output is cut off.”
After some thought, Han Xiao called Psionic Prime out to do tests and very soon received multiple test results.
When Psionic Prime was completely covered, he was unable to move, his signals were cut off, he could not communicate with the outside world, and Phillip could not send him orders.
Han Xiao also tried to only cover a part of Psionic Prime’s body to see if he could cut off Psionic Prime’s control of those parts. However, this failed. Apparently, during the process of solidifying spacetime, the edge had to be unobstructed. If it was obstructed by a physical object, the amber would not form. This was really similar to blowing bubbles.
“Therefore, in order to freeze a target, the only way is to completely cover it…”
Han Xiao caressed his chin and had an idea. Since the Spacetime Amber could block all kinds of energy and redirect them away, it could be used as a special kind of external armor.
The only problem was that he could not shape the amber to his will for the time being. The amber he created would only be spherical.
Furthermore, the Spacetime Amber would only cause the energy to slip away but not block it. In order to make it useful on his armor, he had to use it over large areas. Since he could not manipulate its shape, he could not achieve something like that yet. Maybe he would only be able to after establishing a Soul Connection with the Spacetime Amber.
Nonetheless, Han Xiao still had a way. He planned to create some amber spheres larger than himself. Then he would use devices with nano-shapeshifting functions to cover these amber spheres. When attacked, he could use those amber spheres as a barrier, which might be even stronger than his tank talents.
“That can be considered a special means of defense.”
No wonder so many people had fought for this Universal Treasure in his previous life.
Although the Spacetime Amber was not originally a combat tool, as long as he used it properly, it could still have astonishing effects. Its impact on battles was even larger than the Evolution Cube.
After he finished testing the Spacetime Amber’s effects, he then used it to seal the Evolution Cube.
At the same time, on the Star Pupil Holy Race Mother Planet…
Outside the room, two guards were startled by the sudden furious yell of their leader and exchanged looks.
Inside the room, Psyker’s face was filled with rage and shock.
All along, despite having lost the Evolution Cube, Psyker did not look anxious. This was because of his deep connection with the Evolution Cube. Even though the Evolution Cube was not in his hands, the marker that he had on the Evolution Cube still strengthened his psychic power all the time.
It was like Black Star had only stolen the Evolution Cube’s body but not its heart, and Psyker knew the Evolution Cube still loved him.
As he could always locate the Evolution Cube, Psyker felt like the situation was still in his control.
However, moments earlier, Psyker had shockingly discovered that his senses for the Evolution Cube had vanished without a trace!
To him, this was as if his wife who had only been enduring the enemy in order to survive had suddenly developed feelings for the enemy and lost feelings for him.
All Psyker could feel was rage in all five of his hearts and a greener than ever emotion.
