Game of the World Tree - Chapter 869
After leaving the Eternal Church, Frank took his guards to the slums to visit John the God of Life Church.
John the Favored seems to be quite famous in the local area, no matter who Frank asks, everyone will show respect.
This made him more and more curious about John the Favored.
Frank is no stranger to the Church of Life, and he often fights alongside the elves who believe in the Church of Life when destroying the demons in the Southern Territory.
Those elves are not the same as the descriptions he has seen from the books since childhood. They are brave and fearless, love fighting and adventure, and they are all born warriors.
However, although they are very combative, they unexpectedly have a warm and kind heart.
Frank often saw them enthusiastically helping civilians, and they were also very friendly to the mercenaries who fought alongside him.
Because of this, coupled with all kinds of rumors about Maple Moon’s free collar, Frank became full of curiosity about the Life Church, and naturally developed a strong liking.
Even because of this, he specially asked the elves for a book of “The Book of Life” and looked through some doctrines.
Of course, goodwill is goodwill, and politics is politics.
Even if he was very curious about the Life Church in his heart, Frank still distinguished the two clearly.
He has always believed that if you want to change everything, you still have to start with the eternal church rooted in the human world.
However, the visit to God’s favored Adam was rejected, and along the way he saw the inaction of the eternal church, the collusion between the fallen aristocracy and the church… There was finally a wave of tremor in his heart.
Even the benefactors of the church no longer pay attention to the common people, and only the nobles can visit. He really doesn’t know whether this eternal church that once represented light and justice can bring hope to the world…
with a little loss. In the mood, Frank went to the slum under the guidance of the guide.
However, when he entered the slum, he was slightly taken aback.
It is not that Frank has never entered the slums.
In his impression, slums often represent dirty, chaotic and poor areas.
The stench was stinking, there was no order, people had empty eyes and ragged clothes…
However, the scene before him was far beyond his expectation.
“This is really a slum area?”
Frank couldn’t help asking, looking at the renovated buildings and the well-organized, clean streets in front of him.
“Master Knight, this is La Rona’s ghetto.” The
guide replied proudly.
“Lie! We are not those nobles who have never seen a slum area. If you say that this is a civilian area in the inner city, it makes
sense . How can it be a slum area if it is so clean?” The guard Roland frowned, displeased. Said.
“No… Lord Knight, La Rona’s slums weren’t like this a few months ago. It was all made by Lord John and Elf friends…” the
guide quickly explained.
Frank raised his eyebrows.
“Yes, Lord John said, the change should start from around, bit by bit, as the first appendix of the “Sacred Book of Life”, “Life, Rights and Struggle” said: a house Why not sweep the world without sweeping!”
“If you can’t even change the environment you are in, how can you change the world, and how can you chase hope?”
“Opportunities are always reserved for those who are prepared. Light and hope are combined. I will not come by myself, but I have to act and chase with my own will…”
“And the first thing to do is to change your mental outlook! Let your life rejuvenate and vitalize!”
“That’s why… …Master John takes everyone to repair the slums…”
“Well… I also want to thank the elves. It is said that many of them are also admirers of Lord John, who follow Lord John and preach life beliefs. It is them who, under the command of Lord John, used magical magic to improve everyone’s Living environment.” The
guide said happily, his expression full of respect for John the Favored, and respect for the doctrine of life.
Seeing him like this, Frank couldn’t help asking:
“Are you also a believer in life?” The
guide nodded and said proudly:
“Back to Lord Knight, as early as the first day Lord John came to La Rona, I Become a believer in life, not only that, but our family has also become a believer in life!”
Hearing this, Frank’s heart moved:
“You also live in a slum?”
Frank’s expression completely changed.
Now, he was really surprised.
If he remembers correctly, the vast majority of residents in the slums have always lived in a muddle-headed manner. As beings forgotten by the city and forgotten by the nobles, their status is not even much higher than that of the slaves in the black market.
There is no hope, no future, and it is even possible to be killed by the venting guards and insurgent robbers at any time, or involved in the struggle of the gang, and die violently…
Even Frank does not favor them at all.
He knows that the empire is sick now, and if he wants to overthrow this rotten country, he needs the support of the people.
However, the people he likes actually refer to those civilians who have received a certain degree of education…
This is a point to be mentioned. Although the world of Seggs is similar to the end of the Middle Ages on the Blue Star, because of the existence of magic, the world’s knowledge and literacy rate are much higher than those of Blue Stars in similar periods.
Of course, it is difficult for most ordinary people to touch knowledge about extraordinary powers such as magic and martial arts.
Like civilians with basic education, they can account for one-fifth of the population of the empire.
Even though one-fifths seem to be few, their composition is very important.
Among them, mainly surplus free people, businessmen, rich peasants and professionals.
Especially for professionals, the vast majority of low-level professionals in the entire empire are civilians, and low-level professionals account for more than 80% of all professionals.
In other words, low-level professionals are the cornerstone of extraordinary power, and the common people are the cornerstone of low-level professionals.
At present, the magic power of the world of Seggs has increased, and professionals have ushered in an explosive period. The most obvious fluctuation in strength is this class.
In Frank’s view, if this force can be integrated, it will have the ability to shake the rule of the nobility.
On the other hand, he was not optimistic about the poor and peasant households who accounted for nearly 80% of the population of the entire empire.
They have almost no education, and there are very few professionals.
Their physique is generally weak due to malnutrition, even if they have hidden talents, it is difficult to rely on their own awakening power at the moment of magical recovery.
Not only that, because their spiritual power is often weak, and in most cases, the quality of their faith is also low. Even the eternal church gradually ignores them as the church power continues to grow.
In the extraordinary world, they are the weakest at the bottom.
And their most common appearance is that they hide in ragged clothes in a dangerous building that may collapse at any time, staring at the outside blankly.
However, the guide in front of him was completely different.
Although his clothes are covered with patches, they are clean and his eyes are bright and full of colors.
Although a little thin, but the mental outlook is very sunny, completely different from the poor people Frank knows…
The Lord John did this?
Is it brought by the Life Church?
It only took less than three months?
Frank’s eyes changed.
As if he was aware of something, he quickly raised his head and looked into the slum, looking for the poor people.
And when the poor living here came into his eyes, what he showed was a face full of hope and light like a guide.
Their eyes shone brightly.
Not only that, Frank was even shocked to see that there were a lot of professionals in it!
However, their strength is not high, it should have just been awakened.
However, this has been very shocking.
You know, this is a slum, the human world, the most difficult place to give birth to a professional, even if it is a slave raised by the nobles, the possibility of giving birth to a professional is much higher!
Clean streets, smiling and hopeful residents, awakened professionals one after another…
If such a scene appeared in the inner city’s civilian area, Frank would not be surprised.
But this is a slum in the outer city!
And this change probably only took less than three months!
Three months! Only three months!
What can you do in three months?
Three months is only enough for the nobles to tour the territory once.
Three months is only enough for the nobles to hold a large banquet.
And now, in just three months, the slums in front of us have undergone earth-shaking changes…
This is simply a miracle!
Frank opened his mouth, his expression moved.
An indescribable shock floated to his heart.
At this moment, he suddenly felt that he had been fighting the demons in the South before, and maybe he had missed a lot of things…At
this moment, he also suddenly realized that perhaps his understanding of Fengyue’s free leader might be a bit biased…
fleeing In fact, most of the people who came to Fengyue were free citizens who were displaced by the war.
And the poor, there is no money to support them on the merchant ship.
Therefore, Frank has always felt that Fengyue Freedom Leaders also rely on the gathered civilian class, which is constantly growing…
But now, he found that he might be wrong.
The vast number of poor people he didn’t value before… seemed to contain some powerful force.
There was an impulse in Frank’s heart.
He wanted to see John the Favored as soon as possible, and he wanted to know how the other party did it.
He wants to know… everything about the life church!
Taking a deep breath, he got off his horse and walked into the slum.
John the Favored is not hard to find.
When Frank came to the other side under the guidance of the guide, the other side was in a temporary patient hut, using life magic arts to treat the pain of the poor for free.
The favored person of the Church of Life wears a holy white robe, and his body exudes a faint brilliance, giving people a sense of peace and warmth.
His figure is not tall, even a little thin, but he stands straight, and his small body seems to contain great strength.
Frank didn’t see his age, but he should be less than forty years old.
However, even though he is less than forty years old, it gives people a sense of vicissitudes of life…
And it is worth mentioning that after seeing the appearance of John the Favored, Frank always feels familiar, as if he has seen it somewhere.
But he was sure that he had never seen such a person!
At the same time, at this moment, Frank finally realized that the Eternal Church…has been hopeless.
A favored person of the church can walk in the world, personally heal the poor, and impart knowledge and beliefs to the poor…
A favored person of the church is shrouded in a church, and it is called seclusion, but in fact, except for those who have real power. Outside the nobles, no one sees…
If the favored ones are like this, what will happen to the whole church?
At this moment, Frank thought of many, many…
” Those who are far from the masses will eventually be far away from the masses; those who deviate from the times will eventually be abandoned by the times.” For some
reason, Frank suddenly came up with such a sentence.
That was what he saw when looking through the “Sacred Book of Life”.
He didn’t feel much at that time.
But at this moment, looking at the focused gaze of John the Favored, and the respectful gaze of the poor people around him looking at him, Frank suddenly felt… that he seemed to understand.
“Mr. John, there is a Mr. Knight who wants to visit you!”
the guide shouted to the busy celestial John.
Hearing the call, John the Favored had released the last healing magic, gently raised his head and looked at Frank.
At that moment, Frank only felt a pair of bright eyes looking over.
Frank felt inexplicably tight in his heart, even if he had seen a lot of big people, but at this moment, there was still a sense of anxiety in his heart.
He stood up straight, put his right hand on his chest, slowly leaned over, followed a standard Mannian etiquette, and said:
“Frank, the head of the Dawn Mercenary Corps, I have seen Lord John.”
Hearing Frank’s words There was a hint of surprise in the eyes of the Favored John, and he gradually turned from surprise to the joy of seeing an old man:
“Your Excellency Frank? It’s you? Why are you here?” As
he said, he looked Frank up and down again, and then I couldn’t help sighing:
“I haven’t seen you for a few months, you seem to be stronger than you were at the beginning.”
Frank was taken aback.
His expression was a little puzzled:
“Sir John, have we… ever met?”
“Huh? Did you forget?”
This time, John the Favored was surprised.
I saw him smile gently and said:
“Your Excellency Frank, we met in the gold mine outside Luc city a few months ago. At that time, I hadn’t been blessed by the goddess…”
Luc city? Gold mine?
Frank was at a loss.
He looked carefully at John the Favored, wanting to see from the other’s appearance, while John the Favored continued to smile and let him look at it.
The memory valve slowly opened.
Gradually, the middle-aged person in front of him, bathed in holy light, overlapped with a certain figure in Frank’s impression…
“You? It turned out to be you? Old…Old John?!”
Frank’s eyes widened and he could bear it no longer. Can’t help the shock in my heart, exclaiming.
