13 To the kindom of death!
"D*mn my arm hurts!"
After saying this Eldrid looked at his arm, shocked.
'How come I still have my arm?'
[You arm was regrown as I traded half of your rewards for to get advanced regeneration.]
'Thanks Dave! What about the rest of my rewards?'
[You can spin the wheel of prizes 3 times]
[Received: Imperial gold ingot, pet storage function.]
[You also received your mission reward for killing the cultist leader, perfect mana capacity: Multiverse level]
[Do you wish to advance to the spirit metal realm? Y/N?]
[Congratulations you advanced to the Copper spirit stage.]
'What are the stages in the spirit metal realm?'
Sovereign Silver spirit
Imperial Gold spirit
Potentate Platinum spirit
'Can I make my armor spirit as strong as my king spirit?'
'What about my plot armor?'
'It was a joke.'
'Are you giving me the silent treatment?'
'I'll take that as a yes.'
Eldrid stretched and heard his muscles crackling and rumbling, he felt much stronger than before.
[Host is advised to learn to control his strength on his way to hunt down Leonard Welser, as you may hurt innocents or destroy property on accident.]
Eldrid turned around, and was shocked to see the aftermath of his battle.
The forest behind the corpse of the cultist leader had been cut down, each tree having a perfectly smooth top. The trees were cut all the way to the horizon, stopping at the forbidden jungle, a tier 2 danger zone.
'What on earth happened?'
[You used all of the mana you had in you for your final strike, of course it's going to destroy everything.]
'Normal mana isn't that strong though.'
[In your life and death battle you managed to subconsciously comprehend how to use sword energy]
[Yes, but quit cutting up and keep going.]
'Was that a pun?'
[You're pretty sharp.]
Eldrid used the imperial gold ingot to replace his broke tarrasque armor in his armor spirit, and he looked like he was in expensive armor.
After heading back to the path Eldrid began his trek to hunt down Leonard Welser.
Leonard was last seen on the plane of death, which was only accessible through one teleportation pad, the one stationed in the kingdom of death.
The kingdom of death was hated by many due to the twisted personalities people had from self experimentation of necromancy. The kingdom was full of criminals, corpses, thieves and the unruly.
The king was a fearsome expert, he turned into a lich many millennia ago, and was slowly gaining power. He didn't ascend due to the fact he was already immortal, and he had made too many enemies when he was younger.
The only reason Eldrid dared go there was due to the fact that he had a note authorizing him to use the teleportation pad, which was secured only due to the overwhelming influence of the guild.
Upon arriving on the kingdom's borders Eldrid was greeted by a ghastly smell. The smell of rotting flesh was so strong it was almost as bad as the tarrasque's breath.
The land around him abruptly went from a lush forest to a dead one, the trees were some sort of undead tree, which Eldrid didn't even want to try understanding the stuff behind.
The dead forest had a pitch black grass, ashen grey trees, strange dark purple mosses, and toxic green glowing mushrooms around him, it was quite an eerie sight.
By the time he saw a wall on the horizon, he had incinerated several hundred zombies and skeletons, which dropped black crystals, which he picked up.
Upon coming closer to the wall he noticed it was a whitish yellow and had countless protrusions coming out from it that looked like deformed skulls.
Once he came to the end of the road he was in front of a large black gate guarded by some unruly looking guards.
"You need to pay 25 gold to enter." One guard said.
Eldrid didn't know the value of this world's money, nor did he know that he'd be charged extra due to his flashy armor.
However Eldrid flashed his badge that Malthael gave him, causing the guards to kneel like last time.
Eldrid wasn't willing to fund some crazy lich king's kingdom with his own money, and he was being lazy.
"Please forgive this one for his insolence!"
"Get up, and not a word of this to anyone. I'm here on official business."
"Yes my lord!"
With that Eldrid entered into the kingdom of death.
