Cthulhu Gonfalon - Chapter 117
Chapter 117: Chapter 117
As Timsar was about to fail and die, the Goddess of Ocean suddenly appeared. Her power was extremely strong, and it was greatly strengthened on this vast sea. Neither Sui Xiong nor Heimsarah wanted to offend her, so they stopped the attack.
The Goddess of Ocean could, of course, perceive their reaction and laughed a few times before turning into a flash of light, and then into a huge element of water before them.
This was where the strength of the God of Nature lay. They did not need to rely on believers or altars, and they could freely descend their incarnations by relying on the source of their priesthood. For example, if the Goddess of Ocean was in the sea, she could lower her incarnation. Although the consumption would be greater than the average method, flexibility might be beyond a god of belief.
However, Sui Xiong took a closer look and saw that this incarnation actually had a lot of flaws. Not only did it bear less power than the incarnation of lowering it by belief, but also it was much closer to the original body. In other words, although the power of this incarnation was not strong, the burden on the Goddess of Ocean was very large. It was simply a synonym for “expensive but not many benefits” and “more effort and fewer results.” It could be seen that the Goddess of Ocean seemed to have the dual advantages of a natural god and a god of belief at the same time, but in fact, it also had the disadvantages of both. Perhaps, the disadvantages were even greater than the advantages.
The Goddess of Ocean did not know what Sui Xiong was thinking. She slightly swept her eyes across the situation in front of her. The huge water element sent out an unpleasant cold snort and asked, “Sarament, what happened to you?”
“There! Is! No! Sarament! Here!” Heimsarah stirred up a spray.
The Goddess of Ocean ignored it and continued to ask Timsar, “Shouldn’t you be concentrating on transforming your own strength? I remember I have taught you the means for transforming those souls that were bound by you into a force of faith. Why don’t you concentrate on transforming them instead of fighting desperately with this idiot? And you are being beaten in such an awkward way…”
Timsar’s body shook slightly, sending out a message.
It was on the vast sea, and a strange force suddenly provoked it. So it angrily launched an attack, and after a few easy battles, it defeated the source of that power. As a result, it leaked its whereabouts, and it was found by Heimsarah.
The giant water element of the Goddess of Ocean was silent and seemed to be thinking. Then she asked, “Why didn’t you run away by using the magical formation that I have arranged for you? If you had used that magic formation, you could have escaped directly to the capital of the Kraken Empire!”
The Kraken Empire was a large country established by the believers of this goddess. It was not on the main plane, but was completely occupied a small plane full of water elements.
If the formation of transmission had been successfully operated and it had transferred Sui Xiong, Heimsarah, and Timsar there, they would have been faced with the power of the entire Kraken Empire. It would not have been an easy task to escape even if they wanted to.
Timsar trembled and transmitted his ideas. This time he said that he didn’t know anything and couldn’t understand why the magic formation had not worked.
“Forget it.” The Goddess of Ocean was too lazy to study it. “Anyway, according to the agreement, if you ask me for help, you must regard me as the Lord. What else do you have to say about this?”
Timsar trembled and conveyed his surrender.
The Goddess of Ocean laughed, waved her hand and changed a fast flow of water into a ring, which covered Heimsarah’s head. “It’s rare that I descend, and I would be merciful and help you to eliminate this unstable factor. If you absorb this one, you can restore yourself better…”
Her laughter came to an abrupt end and she turned her head in exasperation to stare at Sui Xiong who was standing in front of Heimsarah and had crushed the ring with an ice blue magic.
“I have a question.” Sui Xiong saw that she finally turned around and hurriedly asked, “Heimsarah and Timsar were split from Sarament, and Heimsarah is even stronger in terms of power, but why do you think that Timsar is Sarament?”
The incarnation of the Goddess of Ocean did not turn furious when provoked like she did in the legend. Instead, she looked at Sui Xiong with interest, as if she was seeing a rare animal. She looked at him up and down.
She did not answer Sui Xiong’s question, but she clicked her tongue and exclaimed for a moment. Then she answered without really answering the question, “A mix of magic and supernatural power… I didn’t expect to meet a natural god – come and be my subordinate, I will allow you to add a sentence to the end of my prayer.”
Sui Xiong secretly disdained her in his mind. He laughed and dodged this topic.
The Goddess of Ocean sounded arrogant, but she did things in a really stingy way. In order to enroll subordinate gods, the gods generally had to separate their beliefs and even separate the holy mission they controlled to show their support. The Goddess of Ocean was very “generous” because she mentioned no conditions and just said that she would let believers mention Sui’s name when they prayed to her and in this way, she wanted to make him a god of hers.
Mentioning Sui Xiong when believers were praying seemed to show intimacy at first sight. In fact, he could not even share her faith. The Goddess of Ocean clearly did not have an impression of him and estimated that he was a rookie who just succeeded in being apotheosized. She wanted to take advantage of the information imbalance between then and get something for nothing.
So he didn’t respond to this topic at all. Instead, he used his mind and sent his information out.
“The God of Aristocracy? The God of Conspiracies?” The Goddess of Ocean was dumbfounded and turned to see Timsar, “How does this matter again relate to them?”
Timsar was confused and did not understand what was going on.
But it was still somewhat impressed by the God of Aristocracy, as previously, the force that provoked it seemed to come from the God of Aristocracy.
Sui Xiong frowned secretly and felt that there seemed to be a huge hidden conspiracy.
The priest of the God of Aristocracy had made trouble and intimidated Timsar. As a result, he killed all the people on the boat. Sean had cooperated with him, so it was estimated that he was in a relationship of assistance and it was not known what benefits he had gained. Anyway, what role could the God of Conspiracy play here?
…Was it possible that the whereabouts of Timsar were revealed by the God of Conspiracy?
He spoke his own guesses. Timsar shivered violently and seemed very shocked. The Goddess of Ocean only giggled and did not care much.
For demigods or weaker gods, the sinister, deceitful and trouble-making God of Conspiracy was an extremely dangerous element with whom none wanted to be associated with. But for the mighty god like the Goddess of Ocean, the God of Conspiracy was nothing more than someone who could only hide in the corner and shoot arrows secretly, so he wasn’t threatening.
The strength was different, so the confidence was also very different.
“Well, this matter should be finished.” The Goddess of Ocean looked a little impatient and said coldly, “It’s time to go.”
Saying this, she reached out her hand and grabbed something, and the surrounding waters within dozens of miles slowly froze and turned into an amazingly giant hand. Looking at this situation, perhaps Timsar, Heimsarah and Sui Xiong would be killed altogether.
Sui Xiong secretly sighed and gathered the magic to confront the giant hand.
The Goddess of Ocean was quite powerful amongst all the gods. He really did not want to be an enemy of this powerful and dismal goddess.
However, there was no choice now!
Even if he would be a subordinate god, he couldn’t go to her kingdom. Not to mention, he didn’t want to be the subordinate god of the Goddess of Ocean!
In this main plane, the power that the Goddess of Ocean could descend was limited, but in her kingdom, the power that she could use was almost endless. At that time, whether Heimsarah, Timsar, or Sui Xiong would become meat on the chopping block would be handled by her at will.
Should I put my own life into the hands of others, and place my safety on the goodwill of others— who was a guy known for fierceness and chaos, who had the slightest bit of friendship with me, but at first sight appeared to have no goodwill.
Hey, was brother Xiong foolish!
A blue light flashed, and the strength of Sui Xiong, like a sharp blade, cut a huge wound on the giant hand made of seawater. Under the influence of this powerful force, the supernatural power that was made by frozen seawater was shaking and teetering and naturally had no ability to seize them.
The Goddess of Ocean was truly angry. She had always willingly killed everything from the sea. She had never allowed anyone to say half of the word “no,” but Sui Xiong dared to disobey her. Was this a trivial thing?!
“Rebellious!” The huge water element shouted, with one hand turning into a fist. A deep blue light flased, surrounded by endless torrents and roars, and attacked Sui Xiong at an astonishing speed that the sea shouldn’t have.
“Keke…” In a ruined village that had been turned into a wasteland, Sui Xiong coughed violently, and only felt pain in his body.
The self-explosion of the Shadow Devil just now greatly exceeded his expectations. Because of the close distance, almost all of the power of the explosion hit him. If not for his fast reaction and consumptive defense that was similar to that of the heat protection layer of rockets which alleviate the power of the explosion layer by layer, maybe the blow would have killed him seriously.
It should be known that it was a self-explosion of a demigod!
“This guy is a lunatic!” he exclaimed irritably. “Suddenly it came and attacked, and as we fought it self-destructed… Is there something wrong with his head?!”
However, he immediately felt something wrong and discovered that there was a trace of space fluctuations in the place where the Shadow Devil exploded.
This trace was very weak, almost to the point that it seemed to not exist. If it was not for him using supernatural power to search, he would have not found it.
He took a moment to think and suddenly guessed exactly what was happening. Actually, the Shadow Devil had divided its body into three parts. He exploded a part of it first, blasting his space blockade, and then he shifted the core to the shadow plane and exploded the rest to cover up the traces.
This set of measures might have been practiced and was smoothly performed. If Sui Xiong hadn’t thought something was wrong and carefully checked the traces of the explosion, he might have been cheated by them.
“Abhorrent! He thinks he is fine after going to the shadow plane?” Sui Xiong sneered. He wanted to chase and kill it, but he had another idea and looked towards the southeast.
What the h*ll, how are bad things coming one after another!
He didn’t think about it closely and roared. He used his supernatural strength to crack a gap in space. His huge body instantly turned into a blue light, went into the gap, and he appeared next to his avatar.
With a loud roar, his own body and avatar re-integrated, the momentum soared, and dozens of tentacles intertwined and turned into a huge fist. It hit back the Goddess of Ocean without any concession.
“You want to fight? I am here!”
