Game of the World Tree - Chapter 943
After the decision, everyone turned back to the direction of the ice castle.
At the same time, Tony will also meet the Wall of Sighs and his party’s next actions through the teammate channel to pass the two Celestial teammates.
”Wall of Sighs? Ice Castle? Okay, let’s see you later! Look at the weather at this moment, there will be a blizzard in a while, you guys pay attention to safety.”
Yeye replied in the teammate channel.
After reading his news, Tony couldn’t help raising his head and looking at the sky.
Above the sky, it was still drowsy, but the rolling clouds seemed to be thicker, and faintly flickering lightning bolts in the sky, with deafening echoes.
On the Snowman Mountain, the whistling of the wind seemed to be louder, and Tony was keenly aware of the monitoring display of the magic concentration of the game system and the pollution level of the abyss power, and the values were slowly increasing.
Tony frowned, feeling somewhat depressed inexplicably.
”Everyone, hurry up, the blizzard may be coming.”
Addos glanced at the sky and said solemnly.
The group nodded and started to rush towards the main peak of Xueman Mountain.
The ice castle is located on Xueman Peak, the main peak of Xueman Mountain, two hills away from a group of people.
Looking from the direction of the Wall of Sighs, you can only see the snow-covered mountains in the distance and the looming peaks of the mountains.
The appearance of the Wall of Sighs made everyone feel a little disappointed, and the weather that was gradually deteriorating gave the operation a haze.
To be on the safe side, even the magic core was finally handed over to Tony.
Ados even specifically told him that he was really in danger, and he should leave the others alone and run quickly with the magic energy-concentrating core.
Tony wanted to decline, but in the end, only a few people’s firm gazes and Ados’s almost pleading words:
”Master Tony, you are the hope of this action, as long as you can gather magic. The core is sent to the Dawn Fortress, even if it is a sacrifice, it is worth it for us. “
Faced with the sight of everyone’s expectations, Tony finally accepted it.
He was in a complicated mood, unexplainably a little uncomfortable, and at the same time made up his mind to do his best to bring everyone back.
When the journey started again, no one spoke, everyone lined up and marched quietly, only the stronger and stronger wind whistling in the ears.
Gradually, the temperature had begun to drop significantly, and snow began to appear in the sky, dancing wildly in the wind.
Finally, after traveling for about two hours, everyone finally came to the foot of Xueman Peak.
The wind whistling, the snowflakes have become denser, and the big snow crystals with goose feathers hit the face, giving people a faint pain.
On the ground, the piled snow was like white sand. As the raging wind was blown up again, it formed a white “mist”. If everyone were not professionals, they might have been blown by the wind and could not maintain their figure.
Fortunately, the group of people took a shortcut according to the map. When they came to Xueman Peak, they were not at the foot of the mountain, but at the side of the hill.
Standing on the mountainside of Xueman Peak, Tony looked up to the top of the peak, and saw Xueman Peak snowy. Perhaps because of a short cut, the first peak of Xueman Mountain was not as high as imagined, it was just raging. The wind and snow obscured the top of the peak, making it unrealistic.
After the group took a rest, they set off again, but after all they were toiled all the way, coupled with the deteriorating weather, everyone’s speed was much slower than before.
”Everyone, be careful, don’t fall behind, a blizzard is not necessarily a bad thing, the weather worsens, the fallen creatures may also hide!”
Ados cheered everyone.
Braving the increasing wind and snow, everyone began to climb the mountain.
It seems to have verified what Ados said, although the weather is getting worse, but as everyone keeps moving forward, they are fortunate not to encounter even a monster.
It’s just that in the wind and snow, occasionally you can hear the faint roar coming from afar, which makes people can’t help but stretch their nerves.
However, although the process is difficult, the group of people are professionals after all, and there are no monsters to block the way. They walked along the snow-covered stairs of Xuemanshan, and it took less than an hour to get to the top of the mountain.
Miller breathed a sigh of relief.
The temperature at the top of the peak seemed to be even lower. Even as a professional, her voice was trembling because of the cold, her face was a little blue, and her eyebrows had already condensed with a layer of ice crystals.
Tony raised his head and saw a huge triumphal stone gate.
A line of unique words was carved on the Triumphal Stone Gate. Tony used the game system to understand it. It means “ice castle” in the mainland Chinese.
Behind Shimen, everything is hazy and unreal.
”It’s the magic barrier! It’s still running!”
Miller said in surprise.
”The detective’s wall can operate, and the magic barrier can also operate normally.”
After he finished speaking, he said to everyone again:
”Attention everyone, get ready for battle, we may meet some terrible guys next!” The
team members listened and nodded, with serious eyes.
They squeezed the weapons in their hands and raised their spirits.
”I’m going in first, let’s take a look at the situation first. If I haven’t come out after 10 seconds, it means I’m in danger, Mr. Athos, you can hold the energy-concentrating core first.”
Looked at the fog-shrouded Shimen, Tony, who was already the pinnacle of Dark Iron, said.
Ados hesitated for a moment, and slowly shook his head:
”No, Lord Tony, you can communicate with other people who are chosen. Your safety is the most important thing.”
”Ados is right. Your safety is the most important thing.” The most important thing is, and the energy-
concentrating core is also placed in your place.” Miller and Ramis also said.
”Yes, let me go, I am a heavy armored warrior, be safer.” The
warrior Boers took the axe in his hand and smiled.
Facing the resolute refusal of everyone’s attitude, Tony opened his mouth and finally had to give up.
Ados patted Boers on the shoulder and chanted the spell silently, adding protective magic to him.
Immediately afterwards, he took a deep breath, his gaze condensed, and he took the axe and stepped in…
Seeing his figure disappear in the stone gate, everyone immediately held their breath, squeezed their weapons, and looked at the direction of the stone gate without turning. Turn around and wait.
”One second…two seconds…”
Tony counted in his heart secretly.
Time passed second by second, but the Shimen remained the same, the wind roared, and the heavy snow leaned down like goose feathers.
The mood of everyone is getting more and more nervous.
Finally, just when the time was about to expire, the mist in Shimen suddenly churned up, and the sturdy figure of Pole suddenly came out of it, unscathed.
Everyone sighed in relief, and hurriedly greeted them:
”There is no one inside, and no monsters, but… I should have suffered a fierce battle. I can see some scratches and blood stains. It should be a long time. It’s longer,”
Everyone was stunned, looked at each other, and finally focused on Tony and Addos.
Tony and Addos looked at each other and nodded.
”Go! Let’s go in!”
Following his order, the group of people who had already prepared took action and entered Shimen together.
Tony walked in the middle, and the moment he stepped into the stone gate, the surrounding scene changed drastically.
The whistling wind stopped, the thunder stopped, and the heavy snow that looked like a feather also stopped, and the tumbling clouds in the sky seemed to have become a background without sound effects.
What you see is no longer the snow-capped mountains, but a majestic complex of buildings, connected into a castle.
However, most of the buildings in this complex have already collapsed, and the scene is in a mess. There are still many traces of battles on the ground, and some ruined staffs and swords can be seen.
On the ruins of the broken wall, there were claw marks left by monsters, as well as black blood stains. It seemed that a long time had passed.
At the end of the building complex, you can see a tall tower thrust into the sky.
Unlike other buildings made of gray boulders, the tall tower is icy blue, majestic and beautiful.
”It’s the ice tower! The mage tower of the legendary ice castle mage Ace is also the core of the entire ice castle! The control center of the wall of sighs is probably located there! We have to go there!”
Old Mage Ados looked into the distance , Shen said.
After speaking, he looked around, and then told everyone:
”Be careful, everyone, there have been battles here, I am afraid there are still monsters left !”
Everyone nodded after listening.
Along the dilapidated castle road, the escort team lifted the spirit of the twelve points and moved in the direction of the ice tower.
The inside of the ice castle was very quiet, and only the heavy breathing and slow footsteps could be heard.
Tony walked in the middle of the team. He moved forward, looking around vigilantly with the afterlight of his eyes, ready to fight at any time.
However, as everyone progressed, the entire ice castle seemed to be dead, without any trace of living beings.
Only those half-dead snow mountain pines on the road vaguely brought a little bit of deep greenery to this once-mage holy place.
Finally…After slowly advancing for about half an hour, everyone finally came under the ice tower.
Unlike looking at it from a distance, standing close, everyone can see the real situation of the ice tower. This huge mage tower may have a radius of hundreds of meters, and it is also covered with scars, which is obviously baptized by battle.
On the ground, you can still see some scattered weapons and tattered robes, and occasionally some fragments of bones.
The door of the ice tower was closed tightly, and there was silence around it. Looking at the towering mage tower, everyone felt an indescribable pressure.
Their spirits were tightened like never before, and the calm along the way did not let them relax, but made them more vigilant.
”Do you want to come in?”
Miller looked at his teammates and asked.
Ados nodded and was about to answer, but suddenly he turned his head and looked at the ice tower gate.
I saw a rumble of the somewhat dilapidated door, slowly opening.
Ados glanced, he clenched his weapon, and quickly greeted everyone to hide away.
Without hesitation, everyone followed him and hid behind a huge rock next to him.
After everyone hid, Shimen slowly opened.
Wearing a gorgeous cyan magic robe, a young man who looked about twenty-four or five years old, a little thin, but with a handsome face and bright eyes, walked out of it.
I saw his eyes swept around, finally condensed on the big stone money that everyone avoided.
Then, the young mage snorted coldly and said:
”Don’t hide, come out, I have already sensed you.”
Everyone’s hearts jumped, and they subconsciously looked at the leader Ados, but found that the old mage was staring wide. Eyes, gaze straight at the youth at the door of the ice tower.
His lips murmured, his expression mixed with excitement, sadness, joy, and anxiety…
”Aren’t you coming out yet?!” The
young man frowned, raised the delicate magic wand in his hand, and pointed it at everyone.
Tony’s heart jumped, and he was about to reply, but saw that Addos suddenly stood up.
He stared at the young man, his eyes were complicated, and his voice trembled slightly:
Seeing the appearance of Ados, the young mage also stayed in place.
The staff in his hand fell to the ground with a clatter, his eyes were excited and his voice trembled:
ice-blue prisms are beautiful, shimmering with dazzling brilliance, and the crystal-clear chandelier hangs high, emitting a soft magical light.
If it weren’t for the fragmented Rubik’s Cube devices on the ground, the walls full of cracks, and the magic altar full of claw marks, this would probably be a luxurious and magnificent magic research room.
This is the inside of the ice tower.
The young mage knelt down in front of the cracked fireplace, chanted a spell, and lit the magic fireplace.
In front of the fireplace, Tony and the others were sitting around a crystal table, their gazes were looking around curiously, while sweeping between Addos and the young male.
Ados was also sitting at the crystal table. He leaned on his shabby staff, watching as he walked back from the fireplace and returned to the crowd to see the young man, his eyes softer than ever.
Everyone , introduce…this is my proud son, Adrian, who is called a magical genius by Master Simeon!” He introduced to everyone with a proud look.
Then, Ados looked at his son again, his eyes mixed with thoughts and complaints:
”Adrian, have you been here for the past few years? How have you lived in the past few years? What about other people? Since you are alive… …Why don’t you go back? Don’t you know that I am worried about you?!”
His voice was a little incoherent and seemed quite agitated.
Hearing what Ados said, the young man lowered his head slightly, his eyes a little guilty.
He sighed and said:
”Sorry…Father, three years ago, the ice castle encountered a disaster. All the high-level mages were crazy. Even my mentor, Mr. Ace, became a monster. Only me and A few survivors are sane…”
”Before being completely mad, my instructor passed the control of the ice tower to me and ordered me to seal the ice castle…”
