Bringing The Farm To Live In Another World - Chapter 1084
Chapter 1084 – Condensing a Formation
Zhao Hai is currently sitting inside his room with his eyes closed. In about half a meter in front of him was a magic formation slowly coming to form. This magic formation looked mystical as it is composed of multiple magic runes. However, the process was very slow as each rune needed to be formed individually.
Zhao Hai immediately returned to his room after his cla.s.s. What he learned today was too important for him. It can be said that he now had a certain understanding about Magic Theory. The lesson was actually very simple, just the condensation of magic formation using spiritual force as a base, how the perimeter circle needed to be made out of runes, and then how to establish a formation so that it could exert its maximum power.
Deciding on which formation he wanted to condense, Zhao Hai finally settled on a summoning formation from the dark element. The formation belonged to a two-element formation with the s.p.a.ce element as an auxiliary. It was because of this arrangement that the formation was quite difficult to condense.
For Mages in the Machine Field, condensing their first magic formation was the first hurdle to their path to mastering Magic Theory. As long as they were able to condense their first magic formation, they would then have an idea on how to condense others later on.
As for two-element formations, they were much more difficult to condense compared to formations that only had one element. Zhao Hai also asked Margaret about the Undead summoned using this summoning formation. It seems like the Undead that were called over weren’t ordinary undead, but they were at least King-level in strength.
At this time, Zhao Hai wanted to see what a summoned King-level Undead looks like. If he could really summon King-level Undead, then he could surely bolster the s.p.a.ce’s strength.
The magic formation slowly condensed. When the last magic rune was completed, the formation suddenly shone before an outline of a humanoid was seen.
Upon seeing this outline, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare. This was because he summoned a Gold Skeleton!
Gold Skeletons might be powerful to others, but in front of Zhao Hai, they were nothing. Crystal Skeletons and Skeleton Kings were the true powerhouses in Zhao Hai’s eyes. As for Gold Skeletons, Zhao Hai didn’t even know how many he had inside the s.p.a.ce. He didn’t have to work so hard just so that he could summon a Gold Skeleton.
But Zhao Hai changed his mind when he began to understand what was happening. Mages in the Machine Field would often layer formations one after another. If he layered several formations together, then he would surely be able to summon more powerful Undead.
Actually, Zhao Hai didn’t care much about what Undead he could summon. What was important to him was the process of condensing a magic formation.
In order to smoothly condense a magic formation, Zhao Hai didn’t divide his spiritual force but instead concentrated his mental energy and condensed the formation slowly.
The magic formation that Zhao Hai condensed wasn’t self-created. The formation was already a wide-spread format in the Machine Realm. With Zhao Hai’s current understanding of Magic Theory, he didn’t have the means to create his own formation. However, this didn’t stop him from believing that he would be able to create his own formation later on.
Zhao Hai collapsed his formation. However, he didn’t immediately go on to condense another one. Instead, Zhao Hai closed his eyes and sensed the feeling of condensing his first magic formation.
As for the Gold Skeleton that he summoned, Zhao Hai can be sure that it wasn’t summoned from the Underworld. As for which plane it came from, he didn’t know.
Almost all of the Undead in the Underworld had been turned to Zhao Hai’s subordinates. If his formation summoned an Undead from the Underworld, then he would be the first to know. Since he didn’t feel anything from the Gold Skeleton, then Zhao Hai was certain that it didn’t come from the Underworld.
Also, after sending the Gold Skeleton to the s.p.a.ce, he discovered that it was stronger compared to the Underworld’s Gold Skeletons. This caused Zhao Hai to be surprised.
From this point, Zhao Hai could see how extraordinary Magic Theory was. Even if one reached Zhao Hai’s strength, summoning magic in the lower realm didn’t allow a person to summon Gold Skeletons. If you wanted a Gold Skeleton, then you can only subdue one and form a contract with it.
As for the Machine Realm, even if Zhao Hai used the same amount of effort, since he has ascended to a place with a higher concentration of spiritual qi and has used Magic Theory, his summoning magic can now bring forth Gold Skeletons. This just shows how terrifying Magic Theory was.
However, one shouldn’t see Zhao Hai’s number of Gold Skeletons as normal. If he didn’t have the s.p.a.ce, he wouldn’t have this much Gold Skeleton subordinates.
Zhao hai sat in his chair as he looked back at the process of condensing a magic formation. He immersed himself in the feeling so that he could be more relaxed on his next attempt.
As soon as he felt that he was ready, Zhao Hai immediately tried to make his second formation. But this time, his thoughts just accelerated as a formation appeared in front of him in no time. It was a fully condensed magic formation.
Zhao Hai couldn’t help but stare before calling Cai’er inside his mind, “Cai’er, what just happened.”
Cai’er smiled and said, “Young Master, don’t forget that your spiritual force is one with the s.p.a.ce. Since the s.p.a.ce has the ability to record, it functions just like a computer. When you condensed your first magic formation, the s.p.a.ce recorded the entire process. Even if the process was difficult, as long as it was compiled and saved inside, you will then be able to use it any time. Therefore, later on, if you want to arrange a magic formation, you can do so with just a thought.”
Upon hearing Cai’er, Zhao Hai burst with happiness before he said, “So that’s the case. Fantastic! Cai’er, can the s.p.a.ce help be condense the magic formations?”
Cai’er replied, “Young Master, you’re getting lazier and lazier. The s.p.a.ce can’t just help you condense magic formations. Since it is like a computer, you will need to write a program so that it could run. Condensing formations is just like writing a program. Therefore, you need to condense the formation on your own before it can be recorded and saved.”
Zhao Hai also felt that he was being a bit greedy. He was certain that no other Mage had this ability. He could essentially condense a magic formation once and then use it over and over again. It was extremely convenient.
After he thought about this, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile, “It seems like I need to condense more magic formations. Laura, how are you doing?”
Although he cannot enter the s.p.a.ce, Zhao Hai can still communicate with Laura and the others. As soon as she heard Zhao Hai, Laura nodded and said, “Brother Hai, rest a.s.sured, we’re doing just fine. The Machine Field isn’t the same as the lower realms, you have to be careful. There’s no need to worry about us.”
Zhao Hai gave a nod, “I can’t do anything in the meantime. Later, I’ll inspect the room for some surveillance devices. If there aren’t any, I will have you come out to get familiar with the environment. Right, did father-in-law and the others receive the magic runes?”
Laura smiled and said, “They’ve seen them. In fact, their very happy that they haven’t gone out of their rooms for quite a while now.”
Zhao Hai couldn’t help but chuckle. At this time, Wild Dragon Island’s laboratories were almost abandoned. Karen and the others moved to the small asteroid that was connected to the Hundred Spirit Tree. The small asteroid was close to where Zhao Hai’s villa was located, it had a surface area of about 100 thousand square meters.
A 100 thousand square meter area was quite huge, so Zhao Hai had Karen and the others move into the asteroid. Not only Karen’s group, the other people in Wild Dragon Island also decided to move. After all, the asteroid was many times bigger than Wild Dragon Island.
Besides the asteroid, there were also 99 other fruits that the Hundred Spirit Tree produced. But Zhao Hai didn’t immediately use them. Although these 99 fruits weren’t as huge as the asteroid, their use was still quite significant. They can be used as a spatial item, it can be farmed, and it can also help one’s cultivation. It was a product that went against the will of the heavens. These fruits would surely have great uses in the future.
Zhao Hai exchanged a few words with Laura and the others before stopping. After that, Zhao Hai began to focus on magic formations. There were countless magic formations in the Machine Field, and every magic formation was its own magic spell. These formations can be layered on top of one another in order to create even more varied effects. At present, it’s highly probable that n.o.body in the Machine Field knew just how many magic formation effects there were.
With the s.p.a.ce’s storage function, the more magic formations Zhao Hai condensed, the better. Naturally, he must take this opportunity and condense as much magic formations as he can.
Zhao Hai understood that even if the academy was safe, once he left, n.o.body would be able to guarantee his safety. He didn’t believe in the Machine Field’s laws either, they were just there for the common people to follow. For those huge powers, these laws were simply useless.
Moreover, Zhao Hai had offended Frey who was from the Wind Spirit Plane. People from this plane were pivotal beings in the Wind G.o.d Palace. Frey and his people might not deal with him inside the Academy, but once Zhao Hai left, it was difficult to say whether these people would try to attack him or not. If his strength was insufficient, even if there was the s.p.a.ce, Zhao Hai would still have to turtle in order to survive, and that wasn’t what he plans to do.
Most importantly, Zhao Hai was somewhat afraid. If he always hid inside the s.p.a.ce, then sooner or later, someone would get wind of its existence. When that time comes, he the troubles coming for him would be even bigger. Therefore, Zhao Hai wanted to use the present time to promote his fighting strength.
Chapter 1085 – Laying Cards Out on the Table
Zhao Hai stopped condensing formations when dinner time came. During this time, Zhao Hai managed to condense more than 20 magic formations. People would be shocked by this speed. But to Zhao Hai, this was nothing.
After condensing his first magic formation, Zhao Hai managed to get the feel of the process. Because of this, he was able to condense magic formations much easier later on.
At this point, Zhao Hai could branch his spiritual force out into five threads while maintaining their accuracy. This allowed him to condense more than 20 magic formations in such a short period of time.
These magic formations weren’t just from the dark element, he also condensed formations from the other departments. After all, he was an all-element mage, it wouldn’t be strange for him to use magic from the other elements.
Zhao Hai proceeded to head towards the cafeteria. After seeing Zhao Hai arrive, Dins and the others gave him their greetings. Seeing Zhao Hai’s beaming appearance, Dins couldn’t help but smile as he asked, “Little Hai, did you do anything worth celebrating?”
Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he replied, “I just learned some beautiful magic. Of course its a happy event”
When Dins heard Zhao Hai, he couldn’t help but stare, then he laughed and said, “You boastful brat. Today’s your second day of cla.s.s, what magic could you have learned? Aren’t you still learning about magic runes?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “Right, I just didn’t expect that magic formations would be this strong. For the people of the Machine Field to reach this level of research regarding magic formations, I really admire their efforts.”
Dins sighed and said, “The upper realm is really the upper realm. Their magic formations have completely surpa.s.sed our expectations. Moreover, these past few days, I’ve been reading about their Void Condensing Formation Technique in my computer. To be honest, it looked extremely formidable.”
The others agreed with a nod. Zhao Hai smiled faintly as he turned his hand, making a pile of snacks appear. These snacks were famous in the Ark continent, therefore Zhao Hai’s s.p.a.ce didn’t lack these things. In order to avert suspicions, the snacks were cold. He also took out several bottles of liquor.
Dins and the others couldn’t help but stare at what Zhao Hai took out. After some time, Dins pointed at the items and said, “Little Hai, where did you get these things?”
Zhao Hai smiled and said, “I got it from the lower realms. Where do you think I got them from? These are famous snacks back home. Everyone have a taste of our liquor too.”
Upon hearing Zhao Hai, Dins quickly said, “Since that is the case, then we would have to be impolite. I didn’t expect an ascended expert like you to bring these things along. It’s quite strange.”
Zhao Hai just faintly smiled as he replied, “I’m still quite young, so naturally I still enjoy these things. Unlike you old deities who don’t eat commoner food.”
Even if these old men knew that Zhao Hai was ridiculing them, they couldn’t say anything back. When they were about to ascend, they didn’t know that the upper realms would be like this. They thought that they would become immortal G.o.ds. Since this was the case, then they won’t need material possessions anymore. Some of them even left their spatial equipment with their families.
Zhao Hai didn’t tell them that he had started condensing magic formations. From what Zhao Hai can see, it seems like these old men had yet to condense their first magic formation. If he tells them that he has, then they might feel down.
After sharing a meal and chatting with everyone, Zhao Hai returned to his own room. But this time, he didn’t immediately condense magic formations. Instead, he sat in front of the computer and looked up information about the Spirit Wind Plane and the Wind G.o.d Palace. He offended Frey, so its possible that he had already become their enemy.
The news he gained made Zhao Hai almost jump in fright. Just as Margaret said, the Spirit Wind Plane couldn’t be underestimated. It was a plane that specialized in producing ascenders, almost every year someone would ascend from that plane. Moreover, these ascenders were very close to each other. Offending one of them equated to offending all ascenders from the Spirit Wind Plane. Additionally, almost all of the Spirit Wind Plane ascenders were talents in the wind element. Because of this, Wind G.o.d Palace had been recruiting them year after year. This allowed the plane to gain a pivotal position inside the church.
Also the Wind G.o.d Palace was one of the major churches in the Church Alliance. At the same time, their strength inside the alliance can be said to be one of the top. It was a huge power.
The entire Machine Field was controlled by three major powers, with the Church Alliance being one of them. With the status of the Wind G.o.d Palace inside the Church Alliance, it certainly held great power. Zhao Hai never expected that he would offend such a huge group!
Upon thinking up to here, Zhao Hai couldn’t help but smile bitterly. It seems like being low-key in the Machine Realm wouldn’t do him any good. With that thought in mind, Zhao Hai turned the computer off and then began to condense more formations.
Zhao Hai stopped at midnight. At this point, he had already condensed about 50 magic formations. Even locally born experts of the Machine Realm wouldn’t be able to do that.
The next day went accordingly. After eating with Dins and the others, Zhao Hai proceeded towards his cla.s.sroom. But to his surprise, Margaret was already waiting for him inside.
Zhao Hai hastily gave his greetings, “I’ve been unfair to instructor Margaret. I’m sorry for being late.”
Margaret shook her head and said, “You’re not late. I just came early. Take a seat, I have something to tell you.” Zhao Hai complied immediately and sat down.
Margaret looked at Zhao Hai and said, “It is a custom in the Ascender Academy to study magic formations during the first month. Generally, if you still haven’t learned anything after the first month, you will be turned over to a robot instructor. After learning magical runes, your instructor would then teach you about Void Condensing Formation Technique. After that, you will go to a church in order to further study. However, your progress has surpa.s.sed my expectations. Have you learned how to arrange magic formations?”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Yes, I have learned how to arrange formations.”
Margaret gave a nod, “I have already contacted the school about this, so you don’t have to come here anymore. In the future, I can just directly contact you. Here, this is for you. It is a small computer with a call function.” Then Margaret threw a wristband-looking thing towards Zhao Hai. It was silvery and bright.
Zhao Hai wore the wristband and then tried to operate it. Honestly, it was more convenient to use than computers. When operating it, there was a light screen that acted just like a monitor, it’s very good.
Zhao Hai stopped playing with the wrist computer after a while. Meanwhile, Margaret just left him to explore the device. When Zhao Hai stopped, she said, “My contact number has already been saved in that device. You can use it to talk to me directly. What you need to learn right now is how to condense magic formations. The more familiar you are to condensing magic formations, the quicker you would be. After you leave the academy, your speed will decide whether you live or die.”
Zhao Hai nodded, he already understood this aspect. But with the s.p.a.ce, the matter of speed was nothing.
Margaret looked at Zhao Hai and said, “I will be open to you. You ascended inside the Ashley Family’s Bone Symbol Camp’s domain. Later on after you leave the academy, someone from the Bone Symbol Camp will invite you to join the camp. I’m also from the Bone Symbol Camp. it seems like our leader has been paying attention to you, so he sent me over. Our Ashley Family is also a member of the Church Alliance and is one of the most important members of the Dark Church. The Bone Symbol Camp was the Ashely Family’s most famous outer sect camp, but now it has fallen. However, this ascender academy is still controlled by us. I hope that you will choose our camp when you graduate. Our leader has already told me that we have stopped monitoring you at school. The surveillance device inside your robot butler has also been removed. You can rest a.s.sured.”
Zhao Hai stared. He already knew that Margaret was from a powerful group, but he didn’t expect her to lay everything on the table. But he still believed Margaret’s words. If she really wanted him to join the Ashely Clan, then she wouldn’t deceive him with this matter. Moreover, with the innate skill that he showed, he was certainly worth being groomed by the Ashley family.
Zhao Hai looked at Margaret and said, “Instructor, rest a.s.sured. If nothing happens, then I would like to join the Bone Symbol Camp. However, I hope that the instructor could help me look after Dins and the others. If you can, please recruit them to the camp as well.”
Margaret looked at Zhao Hai and nodded, “If I tell the camp leader, I’m sure he will agree. Since I’ve already interacted with you, the other powers would know to not get in touch with you. But since our Bone Symbol Camp has been very low-key recently, there would be some blind fellows who will try to contact you. I hope that you can make your decision clear to them. After you head back, read about the Bone Symbol Camp’s situation. Don’t just look at the overall statistics, also pay attention to the casualty rates of the camps in recent years. You are a smart one, you should understand what I mean by this.”
Zhao Hai nodded and said, “Instructor can rest a.s.sured, I understand. But instructor, I managed to offend someone from the Wind G.o.d Palace. If I join the Ashley Family, won’t I bring trouble along with me?”
Margaret looked at Zhao Hai and calmly replied, “The Ashley Family is a Dark Mage family, we aren’t afraid to face trouble!”
Zhao Hai nodded, “Yes, instructor, I understand.”
Margaret nodded, then she said, “It might be inconvenient for you to condense formations inside your room. You can go to the grounds to condense your formations and then try to see its power. I’ll give you two things. This first one will allow you to use a special room in the practice grounds. Besides you, n.o.body would be able to enter this room. This other one is a formation used to adjust the density of spiritual qi. After one month, this formation will adjust the concentration of spiritual qi around you. This way, you will be accustomed to the normal amount of spiritual qi by the time you graduate.” Then she threw two things over to Zhao Hai.
