Glowing white books were lined up on the wooden bookshelves. All the books were thick like dictionaries.
‘Finally, this must be the library.’ Angele felt relaxed, he flew to the bookshelves and started reading from the first shelf on the left.
God’s Song, Jonna’s Moon, Anserine Collection, World Structure…
Most of the books were poems or lyrics that were praising the God, only some of them were related to general theories.
Angele checked the books and scanned more than 30 of them into the database.
He had a general idea of the Soul River Realm after reading the books.
Also, Angele had a better way to check his power level with the help of the theories he discovered.
In the Soul River Realm, a class that was named Light Priest had the similar power level as a rank 4 wizard in the wizard world.
Light Priests were the most respected priests in the countries; there were also Star Priests and Moon Priests who were at lower ranks. It seemed like the Light Priest was the highest rank a mortal could reach in the Soul River Realm.
After doing some comparison, Angele realized that the Soul River Realm was similar to the west coast of the wizard world.
Light Priests were rare here and the rest of the priests were like rank 1 or rank 2 wizards.
‘So, I can check the power level of the lords now…’ Angele thought as he read a book about the history.
Creatures with power level higher than Light Priests were considered as Realm Gods. The four turtles were Sea God 1 , there were also Goddess of Hunt and God of Sky—they were all guardians of this land and the first several living beings that appeared in this realm.
There was a total of three Gods here and people built many temples for them in the Soul River Realm.
God of Sky was relatively weak but he had the ability to predict the future. Urpara was the God of Hunt and Inpulous was the Sea God, they were Gods of Wars. Angele heard their names earlier.
Angele’s expression suddenly changed as he turned the page.
Rows of complicated information were listed on top of the page; below the information, there was a photo of a war.
‘Sea God Year 77651, dimension fissure was detected by the temple. Monsters of the Nightmare Realm invaded our land. The Elder Priest sacrificed his body and soul to summon a strong being that was called Yale from the wizard realm. Yale said that he was the son of the earth and people called him the Red Wizard.
‘Sea God Year 77692, the Red Wizard defeated and expelled Evil Sword Vapor with the help of the Goddess. Red Wizard was a rank 8 wizard. He was severely injured when he returned to the wizard world. The Goddess fell in love with the Red Wizard during the war. They had one child that was named St. Shirota. That was the start of the Holy Family…’
‘Wait… The ancestor of the Holy Family was a rank 8 wizard…’ Angele turned the pages quickly but he found nothing else that was related to the Red Wizard.
However, Soul River Realm was invaded multiple times thereafter and the inheritors were all eliminated.
According to the information Angele found in the books, Anglee assumed that the Gods of this realm had the similar power level as a rank 8 wizard.
They used a certain ritual to summon a strong wizard from the wizard world and defeated the monsters of the Nightmare Realm together.
According to the record, there were four invasions in the last 20,000 years.
The priests of the Soul Realm had to summon strong beings from other realms to help them fight the monsters and the rank 8 wizard was summoned during the Holy Light War.
‘Which means, the Red Wizard might be a strong wizard from the underground world. His power was also weakened when he came to this realm, but he could defeat the lords of the Nightmare Realm with the help of the Goddess.’
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes, he quickly analyzed the power level information he collected from the books and created a system.
‘Bone and Eye Devil’s refined true forms probably have the same level as a rank 8 top-level wizard. The Sea God and the Goddess of Hunt are also at rank 8.
‘If Eye Devil’s true form is always active just like Bone told me, according to the Erin’s Funeral Oration, Eye Devil’s true form had the similar power level as a rank 5 or rank 6 wizard. The situation should be the same for the other wizards.’
Angele quickly analyzed.
‘If everything is correct, my true form had the similar power level as Eye Devil since the power level of my true form is the same as a rank 6 wizard. The true form’s power was improved greatly when it advanced to rank 4 and it became even stronger after reaching rank 6. With the help of the Erin’s Funeral Oration, I know what I should do. However, I have no idea how my true form will advance to the next rank…’
Also, Angele noticed that he could enter the Nightmare Realm however he wanted after his true form was strengthened.
The problem was that Angele’s real form was weak in the wizard world.
‘My soul will be strengthened after I reach rank 4, but what about rank 6—or even rank 8? I have no idea…’ Angele narrowed his eyes. ‘In the Nightmare Realm, I have the Erin’s Funeral Oration, and I can keep advancing with my true form; also, my true form is full of potential.’
Angele was trying to make a perfect plan in mind. ‘I don’t care if I’ll become a monster in the wizards’ mouths… Power is the only thing that matters…’ He decided to focus on the Nightmare Realm instead of the main world.
The path of wizards was full of blocks and Angele already lost his direction; however, the path of the ancient wizards was clear.
Angele closed the book and made sure that no one would know he read the books.
The information from the books helped him a lot.
Angele had a deeper understanding of the rank 5, rank 6, and rank 8 wizards.
Rank 4 separated a strong wizard from a normal wizard and the true form separated a strong bloodline wizard from a normal bloodline wizard.
The power of the true forms was different from the power of the wizards. Rank 5 and rank 6 were considered as just one rank for the true form, it was the creation of the natural magic patterns.
It was mentioned in the Erin’s Funeral Oration that after rank 4, Angele needed to create the magic patterns on his body in a natural way. The magic patterns would only appear when his bloodline was dense and extremely pure.
Angele learned a lot from the information he just collected.
Magic patterns would appear in one’s genes when his true form reached rank 5 or rank 6. According to the strange cells he found in the skeleton soldier’s body, he would reach the top-level of rank 6 after his cells were covered with the natural magic patterns.
This level was called Undead True Form on the Erin’s Funeral Oration.
Angele would be able to be reborn even if his physical body was cut into pieces as long as the magic patterns on his cells were not destroyed. At this point, only spells that would eliminate his soul would threaten his life.
At rank 7, his body and soul would become one. His soul would never die under normal circumstances and he could easily live for more than ten thousand years. He would be able to quickly recover even if his body was destroyed as long as part of his soul was still alive. Also, his body would be strengthened.
At rank 8, according to the description on the war history and the Erin’s Funeral Oration, he would be able to reach the rank with a refined true form. The magic patterns inside his body and soul would become part of the realm power. Also, rank 8 was probably the highest for a living being.
The magic patterns in his body had to be unique and the magic runes he created would be strengthened greatly at that point.
After reaching rank 8, he would be able to start a ritual and summon the things he needed.
For example, magic patterns would appear when one’s true form reached a certain level. Those magic patterns had no power in them, but they would be unique.
After he reached rank 8, the useless magic patterns would no longer act as decorations, they would become the core of his rune circle.
Strong beings over rank 8 would be able to detect the rune circle as long as they were not interrupted by special auras. Those magic patterns were similar to fingerprints.
Eye Devil had them, Bone had them, Eye of the Destruction also had them.
Blue light dots disappeared from his eyes and Angele’s expression slowly loosened.
‘That’s why a rank 8 wizard can fight with the Gods… He had the similar power as the Realm Gods…’
Also, others would be able to identify him through the special power of the magic patterns.
They were like the Gods and Demons from the legends. Different Gods or Demons all had their own special signs or features.
‘It’s no longer following the rules of the realms. It’s a way to become the rulers of the realms. When a level 8 wizard or a Realm God arrived at a new realm, he would become the strongest being of the realm, or the realm might be destroyed.’
It was the same as inserting an irregular brick into a small wooden house. The house would collapse if the brick was too large.
‘Which means, the ancient rank 8 wizards’ power was greatly reduced by the realm power.’ Angele inhaled deeply, he finally understood why Eye Devil decided to bring a whole army here.
The realm power would weaken the lords and it was impossible for them to sneak into the realm without being detected.
‘But why? The Nightmare Realm had the power to change the rules…’ Angele felt like that he was getting close to the secret of the Nightmare Realm.
