Lord of Flames - Chapter 42
Chapter 42. The Cold Fire!
In the underground city, the Dwarven Queen was busy forging weapons.
On the surface, some Dwarves arrived by going through an ancient passage, they then headed to the Miracle Wasteland.
The passage they used wasn’t located in the Miracle Wasteland. However, it was inside the Misty Mountain Range.
Under the Misty Mountain Range, the subterranean version of the Orcish Kingdom and the Human Kingdom in the west was the underground world of Humans and Dwarves.
The Dwarves in this area used to be a unified country, but for some unknown reason, they split into eight different tribes, each living in a separate area.
The main reason why this location attracted the Dwarves was that there were volcanoes beneath the Misty Mountain Range.
Magma was also flowing underground in the other regions.
Since the Dwarves needed a high enough temperature to refine iron, they freely used these volcanoes.
After all, it was a wonderful resource that could save them a lot of time and energy.
The Dwarves were undoubtedly smart, and at the same time, bold.
For example, the Mournful Misty Dwarves built their Smelting Hall only a few dozen meters away from the volcano’s lava bank.
It could be said that they were quite daring.
If lava didn’t come out, then it wouldn’t be fun!
There weren’t many Dwarves above the ground nowadays. Most of the Dwarves here were of the Dwarven Queen’s tribe.
Her tribe was once called the Iron Castle Tribe and she had lived in an underground city where her entire tribe was located.
However, the Iron Castle was already abandoned.
Only the leaders who had been recognized by the eight factions were qualified to enter Iron Castle.
The Dwarven Queen’s grandfather was once their King.
However, her father didn’t receive the God of Forging’s blessing. He was unable to forge the best weapon.
As a Dwarven King who was not able to forge the best weapon, the crowd didn’t accept him as their King.
This was also one of the reasons why the Dwarves split up.
After the Dwarves arrived above the surface, they quickly walked out of the Misty Mountain Range and arrived at the Miracle Wasteland. After doing so, they then entered the half-built Miracle City.
They were here to help the Fox Race refine iron.
Although they didn’t have the help of modern technology, the Dwarves’ smelting skills weren’t bad.
As a matter of fact, some of the weapons that Lin Yan refined were far more powerful than the cold weapons that Lin Yan used in his previous world.
The reasoning behind this was very simple.
It wasn’t a technical problem, it was however more dependent on the type of materials used.
Since the Continent of Gods was a land filled with swords and magic. The ores here often contained special Magical Properties and some even had Divine Properties engraved into them.
It would be quite strange if the weapons forged here weren’t formidable.
The Dwarves were good at combining specific ores. By doing this, the various Magical and Divine Properties would be able to reach their most balanced state, thus forging the best of weapons.
However, in terms of pure forging techniques, they were lacking quite a bit.
This was also the reason why Lin Yan’s revelations made the Dwarven Queen extremely happy.
Lin Yan naturally didn’t stay idle while everyone else was working in full swing.
He continued searching for other special flames under the Misty Mountain Range.
Lin Yan found yet another Lava Fire and swallowed it, gaining some more Evolution Points.
Lin Yan had also discovered a new type of Fire.
The Fire was white. When Lin Yan discovered it, it was burning on the skull of a large underground animal.
Naturally, Lin Yan didn’t hesitate to devour the Fire.
After he absorbed it, the system quickly analyzed his newfound abilities.
In just a short moment, the system modified Lin Yan’s Fifth Flame Layer.
The name of this layer was now “Cold Fire”.
Whenever his “Cold Fire” burned, it had a very special effect.
It would release a certain fluctuation that made one feel very comfortable.
According to his system panel’s instructions, the “Cold Fire” would make people within a certain distance have a slight mental improvement.
Basically, it was a custom-made Fire for magicians.
Yes, his new Fire was extremely biased.
He could only use it on a few people.
At the end of the day, the Fox Girl returned to the Divine Hall.
Her room was on the second floor.
Even though her room was very simple, it was quite warm.
She called in a few maids to provide hot water for her, once she received her water, Qing Ling began taking a bath.
Despite taking a bath in the Divine Hall and although she was residing on the second floor, Qing Ling would feel a little nervous and have a flushed face at all times.
This was because it felt like she was being watched by her God whenever she cleansed herself.
Of course, Lin Yan wouldn’t deliberately do such a thing.
In actuality, he couldn’t do it either unless Qing Ling prayed while bathing.
However, this time, while she was washing, she suddenly fell into a daze and forgot that she was bathing, without helping it, she started praying.
She didn’t realize that this was a mistake.
Since she was praying, Lin Yan could see her.
This happened just as Lin Yan was about to give his Cold Fire a try.
As he was thinking, Lin Yan opened a passage through his line of belief and saw the Fox girl’s state.
The little girl’s figure was quite good…
Lin Yan glanced at it for a moment before opening the system panel and sent a portion of the ‘Cold Fire’ through his Virtual Godhead.
The Energy Points that Lin Yan placed inside was probably enough for the ‘Cold Fire’ to burn for a day.
“What is this?”
When the Fox girl saw the Cold Fire float in the air, she was very curious.
The Cold Fire still gave off a bit of heat, however, it wasn’t very much. This was because Lin Yan had lowered the temperature quite a bit.
Suddenly, the Fox girl, Qing Ling, had received a new Divine Revelation.
“Ah, this was a gift bestowed upon me by my God!”
The Fox girl felt very happy.
She quickly went to find a bottle and let the cold flame burn in it.
After placing the Cold Fire inside, Qing Ling seemed to have regained her senses and remembered what she was doing. She wasn’t wearing anything!
Her face started reddening up.
She was slightly worried.
“Why did I forget? Was I disrespectful to God when I prayed like this? Will God be angry?”
Her little heart jumped with panic.
She quickly put on her clothes and went to the bedroom and prayed once more, this time to apologize to God.
However, God didn’t respond to her.
Qing Ling’s worries didn’t subside even as she started meditating.
Her growth in magic progressed very quickly.
Under Lin Yan’s care, she became a second rank magus and wasn’t far from attaining the third rank.
If Lin Yan had truly become a God and earnestly took care of a believer, he would be able to raise their magic levels at an extreme rate over a short period of time.
Although his Virtual Godhead wasn’t that fast, it also wasn’t too slow.
There was a certain hidden danger if he increased his strength too quickly.
Therefore, Lin Yan deliberately controlled his speed.
When Qing Ling meditated, a surprised expression appeared on her face.
It was because she felt that the flame bestowed by God was simply too great!
It had greatly improved her meditation efficiency!
Thus she couldn’t help but reveal a look of joy.
She was finally certain that God wasn’t angry at her, or else she wouldn’t have been bestowed this Fire.
At this moment, her face flushed a little bit.
She thought that it must’ve been because God looked at her body.
“Aiya…! Since I’m the Holy Maiden of God, my body and mind belonged to him. It’s fine if my God looks at me,” Qing Ling exclaimed.
She still felt a bit embarrassed. After all, she was still a young girl.
Fortunately, her meditation gradually deepened and she finally managed to enter a deep state.
She did not have distracting thoughts in her heart.
However, in the days that followed, she would occasionally recall this matter and blush.
Ever since Lin Yan’s fifth layer had transformed into a “Cold Fire”, Meng Ying and Qing Ling would obtain a small portion of “Cold Fire”, whenever they prayed.
The Energy Points in the ‘Cold Fire ‘ was only enough to burn for a day before it disappeared.
However, this wasn’t a problem as they would get new ones every day.
Whenever the small Cold Fire burned, their spiritual energy grew faster than before.
This had made both of their beliefs in the great “Lord of Flames” encroach deep into their bones!
