Global Game: AFK In The Zombie Apocalypse Game - Chapter 1451
1451 Making Use of
“About a year ago, we found a special passage under the shady line. We’ve been digging for more than half a year to open the passage. Some time ago, we opened the passage and found a large number of elite-level giant-sized undead creatures behind the passage.”
Gano swallowed his saliva carefully and looked at Fang Heng.
“The Chambers of Commerce think that the source of the shady line is behind the passage. The remains of the City Lord’s ancestors are also inside. It’s possible to find treasures or something inside.”
Fang Heng interrupted, raising his eyebrows, “Tell me more about the treasure.”
Gano opened his mouth and said, “It’s just a rumor. It’s said that the Holy Court fought against us necromancers when they were fighting for this world. There was a huge battle at the source of the shady line. Both sides paid a huge price and left many treasures there. Perhaps we can still find them there.”
Fang Heng rubbed his chin and continued asking, “Strange. Since you have the ability to open a barrier, why did you attack the Rand Chamber of Commerce?”
“The normal barrier is of a lower level and can only deal with most normal creatures and some elite creatures. Most of the creatures at the back of the passage are elite-level giant-sized creatures. The normal barrier can’t guarantee the safety of the team. The Chambers of Commerce has always been looking for larger soul crystals to create a stronger barrier. Later, I heard that the Rand Chamber of Commerce has one.”
“We originally wanted to work with the Rand Chamber of Commerce, but this proposal was rejected. A few trading firms felt that the Rand merchants did not have the right to do so. Moreover, they owed us so much investment in the early stages. One more person meant one more share. We then thought of a way to buy from the Rand Chamber of Commerce…”
Hearing Gano’s words, Fang Heng nodded slightly, finally understanding.
“In other words, you guys are relying on tools made from soul crystals to release a higher-level barrier to avoid the perception of ordinary undead creature? Right?”
Gano nodded frantically.
“Yes, yes, yes, that’s it. I promise, I swear, I didn’t lie to you at all.”
“Where is it?”
Gano quickly took out a green crystal and handed it to Fang Heng.
Fang Heng took the jade token.
[Hint: Player has obtained an item-soul jade crystal (small).]
[Item: Soul jade crystal (small).]
Durability: 128/1000 (Unable to be repaired).
Description: Inject mental power to create a barrier (small). The barrier will block most of the life force of the creature in the area and reduce the attack of the nearby undead creatures (only effective on ordinary undead creatures and some elite undead creatures).
Fang Heng put away the jade crystal and weighed it in his hand.
The quality of the jade crystal was exactly the same as the soul crystal in his backpack.
For safety reasons, Fang Heng continued to ask Gano for a few more details.
He confirmed that Gano’s information matched what he had seen in the underground shady line.
There was a high chance that Gano wasn’t lying to him.
Gano looked at Fang Heng and begged, “I’ve already told you everything I know. Can you let me go?”
Fang Heng thought for a moment.
Gano was just a small character.
Even if they let him go, the Culodi Trading Company would still deal with him.
Fang Heng sized Gano up and thought of a better idea.
Gano panicked even more when he saw Fang Heng’s gaze. He said, “I promise I won’t tell anyone. If I reveal anything related to the shady line, the family won’t let me off. Even if it’s for my own sake, I won’t tell anyone. Killing me won’t do you any good, right? I can still stay in the trading company to provide you with information…”
“Very good. Don’t do anything, understand?”
“I promise! I swear to you!”
Gano was afraid of death.
It was easy to control people who were afraid of death
Fang Heng nodded and said, “Listen to me. Not only will you not die, but you will also receive many benefits.”
Under Gano’s puzzled gaze, the surrounding Ice Bones gradually dispersed.
Fang Heng said as he stepped forward.
“Where are we going?”
“Of course, we’re going to find the people from the Culodi Chamber of Commerce. Your distress signal has been sent out, so there should be people coming to help soon, right?”
Gano’s expression changed again, not knowing what Fang Heng was up to.
“Don’t be so nervous, relax. You should be happy that you’ve taken the large soul crystal stone from the hands of the Ed Chamber of Commerce.”
“Let’s go back to the Rand Chamber of Commerce to get the soul crystal back first, then we’ll meet up with your reinforcements.”
Gano was utterly stunned. He turned to look at Fang Heng, his eyes full of surprise as he uttered, “Ah?”
“Yes, you were the one who stole the soul stone from the Rand Chamber of Commerce.”
Fang Heng narrowed his eyes and continued, “From now on, I’m the expert you invited. I’m an expert who cultivates both the study of necromancy and the sacred study. I was invited by you to explore the source of the shady line. Do you understand?”
Gano swallowed his saliva carefully, and goosebumps rose on his back again.
“You, you want…”
Gano watched as Fang Heng pressed his finger on his forehead.
A cold breath flowed from Fang Heng’s fingers into his forehead.
Gano’s body immediately stiffened, not daring to move at all.
After a while, Fang Heng retracted his hand and whispered, “Alright, raise your hand and look at the back of your right hand.”
Gano quickly raised his right hand.
He could clearly see a strange pattern on the back of his right hand.
Gano panicked and asked, “What did you do to me?”
“Your life is connected to the rune mark. As long as I die, you will also die. Therefore, it’s best not to do anything strange, or else we won’t have a good ending.”
Gano suddenly felt a chill run through his body.
He had no doubts about what Fang Heng said.
In Gano’s opinion, Fang Heng was not only able to control so many Ice Bones, but he was also able to use the high-level abilities of the sacred study. He had an endless stream of strange methods and was an extremely terrifying existence.
It was very reasonable for him to use such a mysterious life rune mark.
“Don’t worry, the mark only lasts for seven days. After seven days, you will be free.”
Looking at Gano’s frightened expression, Fang Heng was quite satisfied.
In fact, he didn’t know anything about the connection mark. It was just a mess of ordinary runes to deceive laymen.
It hadn’t disappeared into the back of Gano’s hand but had directly dissipated.
There was no practical effect at all.
However, Gano was afraid of death, so Fang Heng was sure that he wouldn’t dare to take the risk.
Needless to say, Gano didn’t have the time to find someone to verify the authenticity of the mark.
