City of Sin v8c1212

Thousands of Drones are already busy in the ancient battlefield deep underground. They diverted the river into a new water storage lake.

在地下深处的古战场中,已经有上千只工蜂在忙碌着。它们把河流改道,注入到一个新建的蓄水湖中。

On the original hill, a huge castle is being built.

原本的山丘上,正在兴建一座规模庞大的城堡。

A Drone hurried across the Plane Channel and ran to the castle.

一只工蜂匆匆爬过位面通道,向城堡奔去。

However, at this moment, the calming Plane Channel suddenly rang a wave of spurts from it. Then a huge black hoof sticks out of the Transfer Gate, stepping out, landing, and hehely stepping on the Drone and crushing it into a bolognese.

然而就在这时,一向平静的位面通道突然起了一阵波动,从里面猛然喷出一股烈焰。然后从传送门中伸出一只巨大的黑蹄,跨出,落地,重重踩在工蜂身上,把它碾成肉酱。

A four-meter Demon walked out of the Plane Transfer Gate, looked around for a moment, then took a deep breath and said in Demon: “It’s a really good place, it’s too cold. Oh, it really didn’t. Wrong, the breath of the Great Lord has disappeared!”

一只高达四米的恶魔从位面传送门中走出,四下张望了片刻,然后深深地吸了口气,用恶魔语说:“真是个不错的地方,就是太冷了点。唔,果然没错,大领主的气息已经消失了!”

It made a surprise roar and just wanted to explore the surrounding environment. As a result, it was seen that a team of human knights suddenly emerged from the castle that was only halfway built in the distance, and the horse rushed over.

它发出一阵惊喜的咆哮,刚想探索一下周围的环境,结果就看到远方那座只建了一半的城堡中突然涌出一队人类骑士,策马冲了过来。

Greater Demon heavily snorted, said: “Small humans!”

大恶魔重重地哼了一声,说:“渺小的人类!”

More than a dozen knights in the district are still not in the eyes of Greater Demon. It took a big stride and headed for the knight.

区区十几名骑士还不放在大恶魔的眼里,它迈开大步,迎头冲向那队骑士。

When the two sides were also separated, the knights suddenly bursted into the Battle Aura rays of light, and then a lance with a Battle Aura attached was shot.

双方相距还有百米时,那些骑士身上骤然迸发斗气光芒,随后一支支附加了斗气的长矛就隔空射来。

Greater Demon suddenly gave birth to an extremely dangerous feeling, screaming, and immediately waved his arms and barely blocked the head and chest.

大恶魔猛然生出一阵极度危险的感觉,狂吼一声,立刻挥动双臂勉强挡住了头胸要害。

With a bang, the first javelin slammed into his arm and blasted, almost taking half of the Great Demon’s forearm. Several other javelins with additional armor piercing effects were deeply immersed in the body of Greater Demon, and two even penetrated directly into his body.

轰的一声,第一支掷矛轰在他的手臂上,猛然炸开,几乎把大恶魔的前臂带走了一半。另外几支附加破甲效果的掷矛则深深没入大恶魔的身体,有两支甚至直接洞穿了他的身躯。

This is not the end, the follow-up javelin followed. The defensive state of Greater Demon is stunned in such a concentration, and the fragile is like a bad shield, which is smashed in a blink of an eye.

这还不是结束,后续的掷矛接踵而至。大恶魔的防御状态在这样的集中攒射下,脆弱的就像一面劣质盾牌,转眼间就被轰得支离破碎。

This Greater Demon obviously doesn’t know what the Rune Knight is, and he dares to harden the fire attack of the two teams, Rune Knight. Even the Legendary Powerhouse has few positive fronts. The Great Demon of the Abyss is also at the level of Sky Saint Realm, and the result of hard resistance is being killed in one fell swoop.

这只大恶魔显然不知道什么是构装骑士,居然敢硬接两小队构装骑士的集火攻击,就连传奇强者也少有能够正面硬顶的。而深渊大恶魔最多也就天位圣域水准,硬抗的结果就是被一举轰杀。

Greater Demon still doesn’t know that when he just stepped out of the transmission channel and slammed the Drone, he was already perceived by Divided Mind. Divided Mind immediately notified the guards here, and mobilized the two teams, Rune Knight, to annihilate the enemies across the border.

大恶魔还不知道,当他刚刚从传送通道走出,随便一脚踩死那只工蜂的时候,就已经被分脑感知到。分脑随即通知这里的守卫部队,第一时间调动了两队构装骑士,前来歼灭跨界而来的敌人。

The Rune Knights fanned out and slowly surrounded. Greater Demon has always been cunning and has a strong life and must be careful.

构装骑士们呈扇形散开,缓缓包围上去。大恶魔素来狡猾且生命力强横,必须小心。

A Rune Knight used lance to poke the Great Demon’s body, took a few rounds of the back of the Battle Aura’s gun, and found that it was dead.

一名构装骑士用骑枪试着戳了戳大恶魔的残躯,带着斗气的枪尖捅了几个来回后,发现确实死透了之后,才发出了安全信号。

Several Mage immediately boarded and went down to check the body of Greater Demon.

几名法师随即策骑而来,下来仔细检查大恶魔的尸体。

These Mages are obviously experienced and will be sent here to have an in-depth study of the Demon department.

这几名法师显然经验丰富,而且会被派到这里来的,都是对恶魔学系有着深入研究的。

A moment later, a Mage said: “It is only the Greater Demon, and it is quite mature. It is customary to rely on the body to fight. But it seems that the Demon equipment of this system is very poor.”

片刻之后,一名法师就说:“是只大恶魔,而且相当成熟,习惯姓依靠身体战斗。但看来这支体系的恶魔装备很差。”

Another Mage was struggling to open Demon’s head and pulled out a hot crystal from inside. He felt it in his hand and said, “It’s awful, it seems that it has sent the news back to the abyss. I think It will not take long for us to face the army from the abyss.”

另一名法师正在奋力剖开恶魔的头颅,从里面掏出一个灼热的晶体,握在手里感知了一下,说:“很糟糕,看起来它已经把这里的消息传回深渊了。我想用不了多久,我们就要面对来自深渊的大军。”

“This is a major event. Let’s return it to the top. As for the army of the abyss, I don’t think I need to worry. There are so many people who want to earn points. They probably only don’t have enough Demon.”

“这是大事,先回报给上面吧。至于深渊的大军,我倒觉得用不着担心。想赚积分的人多了,他们大概只愁恶魔不够多。”

“It’s a pity that we, as people in the family, can’t get points.”

“可惜我们作为族内的人,反而不能得到积分。”

“This is not necessarily the case. I heard that His Royal Highness has considered implementing the points exchange system within the Archeron family. Some of our regular salary will be paid out by points.”

“这可不一定,听说殿下已经考虑在阿克蒙德族内也实行积分兑换制度。我们曰常的薪水,将会有一部分用积分来发放。”

“This is really good!”

“这可真不错!”

Several Mage chatted and completed a spot check of Greater Demon. They then let Rune Knights carry the body of Greater Demon back to the castle.

几名法师一边聊天,一边完成了对大恶魔的就地检查。他们随即让构装骑士们把大恶魔的尸体抬回城堡。

Like Giant Dragon, Demon is also a mobile treasure house. The high-quality Demon is a valuable magic material almost all over the body. Therefore, although the body of the Greater Demon was so smashed, it could not be wasted.

和巨龙一样,恶魔也相当于一座移动宝库,品阶高的恶魔几乎全身上下都是价值不菲的魔法材料。所以这具大恶魔的尸体虽然被轰得十分残破,也不能浪费了。

Several Saint Realm strongmen then rushed in and walked into the Plane Channel. He found that there were already many Great Demons on the abyss, and more Demons were assembling, and a Demon army had already taken shape.

几名圣域强者随后匆匆赶来,走进位面通道,赫然发现深渊的那头已经有不少大恶魔出现,而更多的恶魔正在集结,一支恶魔大军已经有了雏形。

The powerful Saint Realm smothered a few of the demons that were thrown up and returned to the Plane Channel.

这几名圣域强者随手斩杀了几个扑上来的恶魔,就退回位面通道里。

Richard knows that Demon will sooner or later discover that the Great Lord has died and then flooded into the initial place. So he has already set up castle fortresses on the ancient battlefield and arranged troops. The castle’s defense system is powered by the concentrated Plane power, which can be said to be endless.

李察知道恶魔迟早会发现深渊大领主已经战死,然后大量涌入初始之地。所以他已经着手在古战场上布设城堡要塞,安排兵力。而城堡的防御体系,则是以汇聚的位面本源力量作为动力,可以说能量无穷无尽。

The castle is now only half completed. The main project is not complicated, but the core of this castle is similar to the Mage tower. The main time spent is the setting of various large defenses and attacks on Magic Array.

现在城堡修建只完成了一半。主体工程并不复杂,但是这个城堡的核心类似于法师塔,主要消耗时间的是各种大型防御和攻击魔法阵的设置。

Soon, Demon appeared in the initial place, and the news that the Demon army began to assemble on the other end of the channel was placed on Richard’s desk.

很快,初始之地出现恶魔,通道另一端恶魔军队开始集结的消息就放到了李察的案头。

When he got the report, Richard was slightly undetected, and Demon appeared much faster than he expected. This is not good news. And from the size of the Demon army in intelligence, it is likely to include a Lesser Lord level Demon.

拿到这份报告时,李察微不可察地皱了皱眉,恶魔出现得比他预想的要快得多。这可不是什么好消息。而且从情报上那支恶魔军队的规模来看,里面很可能包括了一只小领主级别的恶魔。

Richard now needs to strengthen the defense system of the original place. The first thing he did was simple, but it was also the most effective: publicly announced the opening of the second points theater, the area is the ancient battlefield of the initial place, the goal is to fight the abyss Demon.

李察现在需要强化初始之地的防御体系了。他做的第一件事很简单,但也是最有效的:公开宣布开辟第二场积分战区,区域就是初始之地的古战场,目标是与深渊恶魔战斗。

As soon as this news came out, many of the strong players boiled again.

这个消息一出,许多强者又沸腾了。

Some of them are skills that are controlled by Giant Dragon races, while others are good at dealing with Demon. The happiest is undoubtedly the majority of the ordinary Saint Realm strong.

他们中有些是技能受到巨龙种族克制,有些则是擅长对付恶魔。而最高兴的无疑是占据了大多数的普通圣域强者们。

Demon is different from Giant Dragon, and their average unit strength is much lower than Giant Dragon. Ordinary Saint Realm are not very useful in fighting Giant Dragon, at least Sky Saint Realm can hold the Giant Dragon in front, and then these ordinary Saint Realm swarm up again and slammed from the side back.

恶魔不同于巨龙,它们平均单体实力要远低于巨龙。普通圣域们在和巨龙战斗时用处不大,至少要是天位圣域才能正面牵制住巨龙,然后这些普通圣域再一拥而上,从侧方背后下手痛击。

But dealing with Demon is not the same, a Saint Realm can barely block a Greater Demon, those ordinary Demon and Little Demon can sweep. I heard that Archeron opened up a battlefield that connects the abyss. They are naturally excited and plan to do a big job.

但是对付恶魔就不一样了,一名圣域就可以勉强挡得住一头大恶魔,那些普通恶魔和小恶魔更是可以一扫一片。听说阿克蒙德又开放了一个连通深渊的积分战场,他们自然兴奋不已,摩拳擦掌地打算大干一场。

Adding a new battlefield is not as simple as it seems.

新增加一处积分战场,并不是表面上那样简单。

In order to consume the rapidly increasing points, Richard must expand the production base on a large scale in order to convert the massive Giant Dragon and Demon materials into materials, sacrifices and equipment, Rune. And now in the secondary Plane such as Deepblue and Faelor, nearly a thousand Mage are playing for Richard. But this is just a battle for the Giant Dragon Plane.

为了消耗飞速增加的积分,李察必须大规模扩张生产基地,以便把海量的巨龙和恶魔材料转换成物资、祭品和装备、构装。而现在深蓝以及法罗等次级位面中,大约有近千名法师在为李察效力。可这只是堪堪应付得了巨龙位面的战争而已。

So Richard decided to raise the treatment of all Mage, artisans and Alchemists again, and their rewards increased directly by 30%. This treatment has already made Mages, who works for Archeron, earn half the income of other wealthy colleagues, and the appeal has suddenly increased.

所以李察决定,再次提高所有法师、工匠和炼金师们的待遇,把他们的酬劳直接增长了三成。这个待遇已经让为阿克蒙德工作的法师们收入比在其它豪门的同僚们高出一半,于是吸引力骤然增加。

The news was just spread in Deepblue, and more than 50 Mage registrations were preparing for Archeron. This trend of human growth has made Richard feel at ease.

消息刚刚在深蓝传开,当天就有五十多名法师报名准备为阿克蒙德效力。这个人力增长的趋势才让李察安心下来。

And as the news spreads out on the continent, it’s conceivable that there will soon be more Mage willing to work for Richard. At the same time, Richard has once again expanded the size of his weapons workshop and is ready to double its production capacity directly.

而随着这一消息在大陆上扩散出去,可以想见,很快会有更多法师愿意为李察效力。同时,李察也再一次扩大了自己武器工坊的规模,准备直接把生产能力扩大一倍。

Now, Richard has been less concerned about the fact that some of his low-end Rune product technologies have been stolen, making the scope of the workshop’s recruitment expandable and able to cope with demand.

现在,李察已经不怎么在乎自己的一些低端构装产品技术被偷学了,使得工坊的可招募范围也相应扩展,堪堪能够应付需求。

After scheduling the expansion plan, Richard took a few followers and sent them to Yanjing of the Millennium Empire to prepare for Sacrificial Offering.

安排完了扩张计划,李察就带上几名随从,传送到了千年帝国的燕京,准备献祭。

When the material handling and equipment production capacity can’t keep up, the equipment obtained from the Sacrificial Offering is a good complement to the redemption plan. And this time, Sacrificial Offering, Richard’s purpose is not so simple, he has other ideas.

在自身材料处理和装备生产能力跟不上的时候,从献祭中获得的装备就是对兑换计划很好的补充。而且这一次献祭,李察的目的也不是那么单纯的,他另有想法。

Prince Bumin still sent Micks to receive Richard and accompanied Richard to the Temple of the Eternal Dragon Sacrificial Offering.

土门亲王依旧派梅克斯接待李察,并且陪同李察前往永恒龙殿献祭。

When Richard walked into the Dragon Temple, several High Priests immediately greeted them with enthusiasm and surrounded Richard.

当李察走进龙殿时,几名大神官即刻充满热情地迎了上来,把李察团团围住。

Richard remembered Faceless’s words. When she was laughed, she pointed to a young and beautiful High Priest, confirmed that she was the host of her own Sacrificial Offering, and then asked: “Dragon Temple Palace Lord? Why don’t you come out to see me?”

李察想起了无面的话,当下哈哈一笑,就伸手指了一个最年轻貌美的大神官,确认由她作为自己献祭的主持人,然后问:“龙殿殿主呢?怎么不出来见我?”

These Priest faces suddenly look awkward.

这些神官脸色顿时显得有些尴尬。

Dragon Temple Palace Lord has a very good relationship with the chief High Priest. The chief High Priest is equivalent to being expelled from the Temple of the Eternal Dragon by Richard. How can the Palace Lord, who is hosting the Dragon Temple, give Richard a good look? If it wasn’t for her to estimate that she had no way to take Richard, I would have used the power of Temple of the Eternal Dragon to kill Richard directly.

龙殿殿主和首席大神官的关系非浅,首席大神官相当于被李察驱逐出了永恒龙殿,主持龙殿的殿主怎么可能给李察好脸色看?如果不是她估计自己也拿李察没什么办法,恐怕一早就利用永恒龙殿的力量直接把李察给抹杀了。

In desperation, she could only avoid it. I didn’t expect Richard to think about her, and asked her to come out. I am afraid that this is not only a simple lack of etiquette, but another purpose behind it.

无可奈何之下,她就只能避而不见,没想到李察居然还挺惦记她,指名道姓地要她出来。这恐怕不止是缺乏礼仪那么简单,而是背后另有目的。

Richard’s last eviction of the chief High Priest, for the first time let these big Priests understand what is called the privilege level.

李察上一次驱逐首席大神官的行为,第一次让这些大神官们明白了什么叫做权限等级。

Richard’s authority is much higher than their ordinary High Priest, so he can do almost anything in the Temple of the Eternal Dragon. Even the act of expelling God’s Obligation is also recognized by Dragon of Eternity and Time.

李察的权限远远高于她们这些普通大神官,所以他在永恒龙殿中几乎可以为所欲为,即便是驱逐神职者这种行为也同样得到了永恒与时光之龙的认可。

Of course, Richard also pays the same price, and the ability to use the authority has to pay the corresponding price. At this point, the old dragon is always the most impartial. How much Divine Favor does Richard need to pay to eliminate his opponent Divine Favor.

当然,李察也同样付出代价,使用权限能力就得付出相应代价,在这一点上老龙永远是最公正无私的。李察消掉对手多少神恩,自己就同样需要付出多少神恩。

As for where Divine Favor disappeared, the problem was simple. Naturally, it was recycled by Dragon of Eternity and Time. So in that conflict, the old dragon was the biggest winner.

至于双方消失的神恩去了哪里,这个问题却是再简单不过,自然是被永恒与时光之龙给回收了。所以在那场冲突中,老龙才是最大的赢家。

In terms of privilege level, the big Priests are not much different from each other, and no one can help.

从权限等级上来说,大神官们彼此相差都不大,谁都奈何不了谁。

This is true even with the Palace Lord and the Chief High Priest. They are divided into high and low strengths, mainly based on the Divine Power level and Divine Favor accumulation, and the other is a political factor. So the difference between Dragon Temple’s so-called Palace Lord and these High Priest is nothing more than Level 21 and Level 18 that’s all.

就连殿主和首席大神官也是如此。她们之间划分高低强弱,主要是看神力等级和神恩积累,另外则是政治上的因素。所以龙殿的所谓殿主和这些大神官之间的区别,无非一个是21级,一个是18级罢了。

Seeing these Priests is silent, Richard sneered, and asked: “Palace Lord, does she think she can’t escape for a lifetime?”

见这些神官们一片沉默,李察冷笑一声,又问:“殿主呢,难道她以为躲一辈子就可以不出来了吗?”
