“My name is Benson, and I’m a… Zombie.”
Under the leadership of Doakes, Angel and others walked in the cave for about half a minute, and finally saw a man sitting against the wall, panting heavily.
He was wearing a white mask, and the exposed skin was wrapped in white gauze.
This person is exactly the sorcerer apprentice that Doakes said had merged with the blood of the Earthfire Salamander.
He claimed to be Benson, a member of the Biros family.
“Zombie?” Kael looked at Benson suspiciously. Is this a nickname? Weird nickname…stiff corpse? Frozen corpses?
Benson nodded: “Yes, zombies.”
While speaking, Benson took off the white mask on his face, revealing his true face.
His appearance is very ordinary. At first glance, he looks like an ordinary person, but if you look closely, you will find that his skin has a stone-like dullness, and it does not have the oily luster of normal skin, just like dead skin that has hardened so-so.
Kael didn’t know what was going on with Benson’s skin, but he secretly guessed that maybe it was some kind of monster skin transplanted, or maybe it was Benson’s unique talent after merging into the blood of the earthfire salamander?
Just as Kael was thinking wildly, Doakes suddenly said: “This should be a disease, right?”
Benson glanced at Doakes in surprise, unexpectedly, Doakes could see his situation at a glance. But after thinking about it, he thought it was normal again. He saw the appearance of Doks in the atlas collected by his family, and knew that Doks was a blood-side wizard active in the Principality of Laxum.
On top of that, Doakes is a wandering wizard.
Although wandering wizards have no organization or family background, wandering wizards often have the most contact with the bottom people and know the real situation of the bottom people best. On the contrary, the organized wizards are more metaphysical.
Benson did not deny it, nodded and said: “Yes, I am a scleroderma patient.”
Scleroderma is a rare disease, even among the low-level people, it is rare. Its pathogenesis is still unclear, and its most obvious external symptoms are that the skin loses its flexibility, loses its elasticity, and becomes hardened and thick.
From the perspective of a transcendent, the hardening of the skin caused by scleroderma is more like a benign symptom, which can strengthen the resistance to blows. But for ordinary people, scleroderma is a terminal disease with almost no cure. As the skin gradually hardens, the blood vessel cavity will also become narrow, because it is oppressive, and the organs will also be affected. damage. As time goes by, it will eventually lead to organ failure, disease and death.
Benson is unlucky. When he suffered from scleroderma, he was just an ordinary person. Through various methods, I have survived for five years, but it has come to an end. Life is frustrated everywhere, and there is no hope at all.
Benson was lucky again. When he was about to face the pain of death, he met a wizard. The sorcerer who called himself Elder Moon told Benson that he had the blood of the descendants of his relatives. In a sense, Benson was a descendant of the Bilos family.
Generally, this kind of scattered children are basically descendants of mortals, and the chance of becoming a gifted person is not high. Therefore, the Biluosi family didn’t bother to look for these descendants.
It is a kind of luck for Benson to meet Elder Yue. And his mental power value has reached 11 points, he has the background of becoming a talented person, and it is a manifestation of luck.
After being brought back to the Biros family, Benson began to practice unremittingly.
After becoming a wizard’s apprentice, the strength of internal organs was improved, allowing him to finally get rid of the adverse effects of scleroderma.
Moreover, the tough hard skin is still preserved, which has also become his background, giving him stronger defensive capabilities and resistance.
Under the guidance of Elder Moon, Benson fused the blood of the Earthfire Salamander, further strengthening the strength of the skin. It can be said that from the perspective of resistance to beatings, Benson can already be compared with the blood side apprentices of the same level.
But the price… is that his skin is harder than that of ordinary people, causing his whole body to freeze, except when talking and moving his eyes, he is completely like a puppet or a dead person at other times.
For this reason, Benson put on a mask and wrapped himself in white gauze to avoid other people’s strange eyes. In this way, although he doesn’t look like a zombie anymore, he looks like another species that is similar to a zombie… a mummy.
“Scleroderma? It’s really rare.” Doakes muttered in a low voice, and then looked at Benson carefully: “Hey, you merged into the blood of the Earthfire Salamander to match the scleroderma, right? This is quite a problem. A genius idea.”
Benson’s scleroderma is not cured, and the wanton use of the scleroderma to beat him, although the resistance has been strengthened, has also made the skin harder and harder.
Although you can’t see any bad things at the moment, in the long run, if the hardness of the skin exceeds the upper limit of Benson’s internal organs, then the aftermath of scleroderma will come again.
As for Benson’s choice to integrate into the bloodline of the Earthfire Salamander, it is a double strategy that can not only strengthen the crust, but also solve the problem of the crust.
The earth fire salamander has strengthened its hard skin. At the same time, the earth fire salamander has also specially developed the tolerance of the internal organs, which is comparable to some high-level monster blood.
Strengthening the blood of the fire salamander is equivalent to strengthening the hard skin and internal organs together. It can be said that this is the best solution Benson has made to scleroderma.
If it were Doakes, it is estimated that Benson would also choose to integrate into the blood of the Earthfire Salamander.
Benson said a little shyly: “This is actually Elder Yue’s advice to me.”
Dokes, who was still focusing on Benson, was stunned when he heard the name “Elder Moon”: “Elder Moon? It’s Elder Moon who is the tree, sun, and moon elders of the Biros family.” ?”
Banson nodded: “Yes, my ancestor was Elder Yue’s younger brother, so Elder Yue took good care of me. I was able to come to Paradise to practice because of Elder Yue’s favor.”
Benson’s words give a lot of information, and this is also his deliberate intention.
Although he knew Doakes, he also knew that Doakes had nothing to do with the Biros family in the past. But who can be sure that there will be no hatred in the near future?
For the sake of his own life, all Benson can do now is to disclose his relationship with Elder Yue, and then point out that Elder Yue is nearby, so as to strengthen his courage.
Doakes also heard Benson’s implication, but he didn’t care. He even secretly remembered this method of “transferring contradictions and pretending to be a tiger” in his heart, so that he can use it in the future.
If he really can’t beat him, he can say in the future that he has a very good relationship with Angel, and even more irresistible with Sanders. The three ancestor spirits of the barbaric cave are all his backers… This method is very good , in the Southern Region, it should work.
Anyway, he has to follow Angor for a short period of time, first to get some benefits in words, so he can’t say anything about him, right?
Leaving aside the fluttering thoughts, Doakes looked at Benson again: “You mean, Elder Yue is in Paradise? Then the person who said he was going to play games before, dare to do it here?”
Benson: “Are you talking about… the masked man?”
Doakes: “The masked man? Who is the masked man?”
Benson looked puzzled: “My lord doesn’t know about the masked man? Then why is my lord in the ‘Mud Maze’?”
“I came in from the outside.” Doakes said directly without hiding anything.
Benson’s eyes lit up: “Outside? Has the space seal outside the Paradise been broken?”
Doakes shook his head: “It wasn’t destroyed, I used other means to get in.”
Doakes did not say why he came, but instead said: “Would you mind telling me what happened to you tonight? Masked people, clay puppet maze, what are these?”
Knowing that the space seal of Paradise has not been broken, Benson’s eyes flashed with disappointment. But in the face of Doakes’ inquiry, he still did not hesitate, nodding his head should be.
These are no secrets. There are quite a few people in the paradise. Even without him, Doakes can find other people to ask. So, Benson didn’t intend to hide anything, and told about his experiences during this period in detail.
Just half an hour ago, Benson followed Elder Yue, meditating silently on the top of the mountain, bathed in moonlight.
But at this moment, a masked man wearing a cloak suddenly smiled strangely and flashed past the Paradise.
Every area in the Paradise is protected, especially the area where there are people. After seeing it, outsiders will not choose to step in.
And this masked man not only came in, but also laughed strangely loudly, showing his own existence, which looked very weird.
Elder Yue realized something was wrong, so he chased after him.
Benson didn’t know what happened after that, because he stayed on the top of the mountain and didn’t catch up.
But not long after Elder Yue chased the masked man away, he heard a strange laughter that spread throughout the paradise——
“Let’s play a game~ If you win, I’ll let you go~”
Benson was sure that this strange laugh came from the masked man before.
Before he figured out why the masked man was making such a fuss, the entire Paradise was enveloped by a huge space seal.
Subsequently, a series of space diaphragms separated the Paradise into many different sites.
When Benson and the other transcendents around him realized something was wrong, they couldn’t leave here.
They can only look around to see if they can find some gaps.
Then, someone found a huge stone with a human face on the top of the mountain.
This stone was there before, but without a human face. Now, the appearance of human facial lines is very abnormal.
The human face on the stone told them that this is a game in the name of escape and survival in reality. As long as they can clear two games, they can leave the paradise.
Immediately afterwards, the names of various games flashed in the eyes of the human face pattern, asking everyone to enter the game.
At that time, Benson did not intend to enter this so-called game.
After all, Benson has self-knowledge and knows that his own strength is not enough to get involved in such a strange incident.
Many people had the same idea as Benson, but in the end… they were forced to participate in the game.
Because some people agreed to participate in the game, and the human face pattern informed that the insufficient number of people will lead to a sharp increase in the death rate of the people participating in the game. The higher the number, the higher the survival rate.
And the person who participated in the game is an official wizard.
He directly ordered that everyone on the top of the mountain must participate in the game.
Just like that, Benson also entered the game half-heartedly.
However, everyone who participated in the game on the top of the mountain seemed to be involved in different games. Benson came to this game called “Clay Doll Maze”, and the number of people participating in the game with him was…zero.
Maybe, there are other game participants in the clay puppet maze, but at least there is no one else at the starting point where Benson is.
The starting point of the maze where Benson is located also has a human face pattern, but it grows on the wall.
This human face pattern seems to exist to explain the rules of the game. It tells Benson: The clay puppet maze is a maze that has been transformed into a mountain. The way to clear the level is to find the exit of the maze.
In the process of finding the exit, Benson needs to pay attention to two things: First, there will be special slime monsters in the clay doll maze, and these slime monsters will attack players, but the strength of the clay puppets will not More than three levels of apprenticeship.
It sounds like golems are not strong, but in fact… they are not. But there are so many of them, as long as you walk near the swamp, groups of mud puppets will appear.
For this reason, every time Benson sees a swamp in the passage, he will subconsciously stay away.
But as he continued to avoid the swamp, Benson found that…he seemed to be spinning in circles, unable to find a way out.
Therefore, it is very possible that the real exit must follow the mud.
Second, there are many poisonous mushroom monsters walking in the mud doll maze. These mushrooms will emit poisonous fog spores, causing a large number of places in the maze to be shrouded in poisonous fog, and they need to pay attention to protection.
Benson didn’t pay much attention to this point. His hard skin combined with the blood of the fire salamander prevented the large particles of poisonous mist from invading his body.
In general, what the human face pattern told Benson was only the danger of monsters in the clay puppet maze.
But in fact, besides the danger brought by monsters, there are many other dangers in the maze.
For example, a wall breaks. ~Soverse.com~ Benson tried to destroy the wall, so that he might be able to find the exit faster. However, after several experiments, Benson discovered that there is a space trap hidden inside a part of the wall, and once it is destroyed, it will backfire.
Benson was almost split in two by a crack in space. Since then, he never dared to break through the wall at will.
In addition to this, there are many trigger traps.
Now Benson is hiding here panting, because a series of traps was triggered before. As a result, the entire passage collapsed, and at the same time, he encountered a space trap triggered by the destruction of the wall.
In order to escape for his life, he carried the energy bombardment on his shoulders, stimulated the potential in his body, and managed to escape.
Benson found a quiet place to restore the magic source and repair the wound, and it was here.
Unexpectedly, Doakes would find him because of the breath of the Earthfire Newt’s blood in his body.
