Rise of the Demon God

Chapter 1193 - 1193: Treasure Temple

"That one looks fascinating. Good for our first trip," Snake Monarch said as he pointed towards one of the buildings nearby. 

"That seems fascinating? Do you even know what that place is?' Long Chen asked, rolling his eyes. ​​

"What?" Snake Monarch asked, curious.

"That place is where new Dragons are born. That place is mostly empty at the moment. So it'll be useless to go there," Long Chen replied, shaking his head. 

" Let's go to that place instead," Long Chen said as he pointed towards a different building that seemed like a tall tower.

"What's that place?" Snake Monarch asked.

"That place is the treasure temple where the previous Emperors kept the gifts that they gave to the Dragons throughout the years," Long Chen explained as he stood up while stretching his arms.

"That means it will have the best of treasures? That looks like a good place to start then," Snake Monarch said as he agreed. "Let's check it."

Long Chen and the Snake Monarch started flying towards the floating tower that happened to be right beside the floating mountain. 

Landing in front of the gates, Long Chen pushed them open as he stepped inside. 

He didn't have to think about this as much as he needed to think about entering the Dragon Graveyard since he knew there was no one that would attack them inside. 

The only place which they weren't allowed to enter was the Dragon Graveyard. 

As Long Chen entered the tower, he was able to see various treasures that were kept here.

"Amazing. These treasures... They are one of the highest grades that a person can find in the Immortal World. Not bad at all," he said, stunned as he noticed all the weapons that were here. 

"And it's only the fish floor as well. The higher floors should have even more important treasures," Snake Monarch said, excited. "Maybe I'll find something for myself too."

Long Chen stepped closer to one of the shields that were hung on the wall. 

"Wait a minute. Don't touch anything," he said after observing the Swore ad he told the Snake Monarch to stop. 

"Why?" Snake Monarch asked, frowning. 

"I can see a formation on this. It's a high level formation that is triggered after we touch them. I don't know what it does, but it doesn't seem good. It's like a trigger. You'll touch them, and something will activate. It's a linked formation with something else, it seems," Long Chen explained as his frown deepened. 

"So don't touch anything until I tell you too," he further said as he started observing other artifacts.

No matter how many artifacts he observed, it seemed the same. "I think they all have this formation. I was right," Long Chen said as he smiled wryly. 

"I think I understand something about it. These must be the formations that the Emperors made, who gave them to the temple so that the future generations can't take the gifts they gave away. It was bad to take their gifts back, and as the gifts were so precious, they did this to stop their future generation too," Long Chen said, frowning. 

"The only thing I don't know is how this formation stops theft? To know it, I'll need to find the bigger formation this is connected to. But if I were to guess, I think this formation either closes the entrance of this place to stop us from leaving or closes the entire Dragon Temple," he further said. 

"It doesn't seem like a killer formation after all. It's a trigger," he continued. "I guess we can't take it. They really took some precautions, basically making these treasures useless for future generations."

"So we can't take any? It's like standing in the middle of the most delicious dishes and not being able to touch them. Why are we even here? Let's leave then," the Snake Monarch said, annoyed. 

"Just treat it as a museum for now. Let's observe the treasures. And if we are lucky, we can even find the second formation. If I find it, I would have a chance of being able to break it. That would make all these formations useless," Long Chen said, not losing hope. 

"Do you think they would have made the second formation easy to find?" Snake Monarch said, shaking his head. 

"That's why I said if we are lucky. Because I'm sure, they would have made the secondary formation where we can't find it. So just think of this as a wasted trip," Long Chen replied.

"If we're lucky, we can get something here. Even if we don't find it, we don't lose anything. We still have the best treasure in the world already," he further said as he remembered the Sword of Time. 

No matter how good the treasures of Immortal World were, they were nothing before the mystical sword of time that was one of the most precious treasures in the entire world for him. 

It could help him gain as much strength as he wanted after all. It was a cheat of cultivation. 

He didn't know who made this magical God Grade Sword and if it was the only Sword with an ability to help in cultivation but it was certainly a shortcut to godhood. All it needed was someone to know its worth and get a connection with the Sword. 

Fortunately, his Law of Darkness somehow helped him in activating the Sword as it linked the two. 

"Let's go upstairs. Even though these ones are good, I want to know what's the best that this world could offer to the Dragons," Long Chen told the Snake Monarch as he started flying up. 

Snake Monarch also flew behind Long Chen. 

The two of them kept going up, checking treasures one floor after another while they also tried to find the secondary formation. 

After checking over forty floors that were filled with treasures, Long Chen finally reached the top floor. 

There wasn't anything above this floor. He looked up as he observed the roof. "I thought the main formation would be here, but it's not here either."

There was only one Artifact on the top floor, it seemed. And it seemed to be a golden dragon statue. 

"What is this treasure?" Long Chen muttered as he closed in on the golden statue.

"Seems like a normal statue. There's no formation on it either," Snake Monarch said as he circled around the statue. 

"Does seem like that, but at the same time, there's something strange about it too. I don't know what, but I'll tell you not to touch it," Long Chen warned the Snake Monarch. 

"Don't worry, I have no interest in touching this thing," Snake Monarch said as he turned around, but as he turned, his tail accidentally hit the statue, making it fall.
