Chapter 560 The Bet Is On
To be honest, Roland didnt want to escort the prisoner to the Spatial Magic Tower.
The two places were very far away from each other, and magic boats couldnt be used.
It was because it would cost a lot of gold coins to use the magic boat on a trip.
The magic materials bought with the same amount of gold coins could be enough for all the students in the school to use for a whole week.
In such a case, the prisoner could only be relocated on foot or by camel, which would waste a lot of time.
For Roland, who had always valued his time, it was almost a waste of his life.
So, he didnt want to go. But before Maromatha came to the manor, she had spoken to the Red Magic Tower as a representative from the Monochrome Magic Tower, asking them to send someone to escort the prisoner. The Council of Elders of the Red Magic Tower was informed of the matter a day earlier, but the problem was that the envoy from the Spatial Magic Tower didnt mention any specific name, so the Great Elder didnt know that they wanted Roland to do the job.
All in all, Roland declined the request the moment Maromatha proposed it.
"Sorry, but I dont have the time," Roland waved his hand and said, "The Spatial Magic Tower is too far away. The trip will take twenty days if we ride a camel, provided that we dont run into any accidents. If anything happens, it will take at least a month."
Maromatha frowned. "But our Magic Towers have always been close to each other." "Its really too much a waste of time."
Roland shook his head and returned to his room.
Maromatha waited for a moment and then left for the conference hall of the elders.
On her way, she noticed a lot of people watching her with lewd and lustful eyes.
But she didnt burst into fury, as she had already gotten used to it.
She had seen such eyes a lot even within the territory of the Monochrome Magic Tower, not to mention in the Red Magic Tower. After Maromathas request was put on the Great Elders desk, the Great Elder got upset. "Whats the meaning of this? They asked Roland to escort the prisoner? They know that Roland is a genius. Have they never considered how important time is to a genius?"
Elder Murphy smiled. "Theyre too petty to even send a flying boat to pick up the prisoner. I dont think the prisoner is really a big deal to them. However, something seems to be off about their request that Roland must be the one who escorts him."
"I feel that something is wrong too." The Great Elder considered for a moment and said, "Ask the catgirl who demanded that Roland carry out the task. Investigate that person, and well probably find something." "Do you mean we have to activate the spy in the Spatial Magic Tower?"
Murphy shrugged. "Its just a suggestion. You are the Great Elder. Its up to you what well do in the end."
"Well well claim that Roland was wounded by the black angel during the last mission and is still recovering from the dark curse." The Great Elder sneered. "After all, many forces know that we fought the black angel and lost a Legend. I dont think they will doubt our excuse. Meantime, well send someone else to escort the vulpera prince, so that they wont really be infuriated."
Murphy nodded. "Got it. Im on it."
Roland didnt know the minor political conflict between the Spatial Magic Tower and the Red Magic Tower.
He had already teleported to Bettas city on the wetland.
He came to this place again because he received Bettas message that a guild wanted to negotiate a deal with him.
This particular guild intended to buy three hundred gold coins from Roland with RMB.
Roland had always been into the gold exchange business.
After hoarding the taxes from his Magic Tower and the sand sculpture for a year, he had gathered almost eight hundred gold coins.
That was not a small number.
Roland intended to keep four hundred of the gold coins for the magic materials he needed and exchange the rest for money in reality.
After all, he had a real life.
He had been selling a couple of gold coins every few days. Now that a major client had reached out to him, he naturally had to teleport back.
After teleporting back to the city, Roland couldnt help but blow a whistle at the magnificent wall of the city that had taken shape.
It had only been a few days, but a solid wall thirteen meters tall had already been established.
It was true that the players were great constructors.
Entering the city, he found that the layout of the city was rather clear.
The roads in the city had been paved. One could tell whether they were business avenues or roads for commutation from their width.
Roland found Betta at the very center of the city.
At this moment, Betta was talking to a group of people. Seeing Roland, he waved his hand and shouted, "Brother Roland, over here! Theyre with me!"
Roland walked to him and found four men in strange black armor that had vague stripes of magic light flowing on them. However, when Roland sensed them with his mental power, he found that those stripes werent magic arrays in any sense.
The five of them all looked at Roland with glowing eyes, as if they had seen something precious.
One of the players stepped out and said with a smile, "Thank you for teleporting back from a long distance way. This place is too crowded. Can we talk in private?"
"Sure." Roland nodded.
That man must be a big boss. The four hundred gold coins he asked for equaled seven million yuan.
It wasnt humiliating to be slightly humbler when talking business with a big boss.
They walked to one side of the city wall, which was remote and had few people around.
The player who just talked was tall, skinny, and average-looking. Apparently, he didnt add any Charm to his stats, just like Roland.
"Mr. Roland, the market price of gold coins is 16,000 yuan apiece. Can you give us a discount since were buying four hundred? What do you say 15,000 yuan apiece?"
Roland clicked his tongue. "May I know your name? Youre asking for a 400,000-yuan discount. Dont you think thats too much?"
"Call me Carrot." The boss smiled and said, "Thats just our offer, and we can always negotiate. However, were sincerely hoping to buy four hundred gold coins at one time. It will save you a lot of time versus selling them individually. You should let us save some cost too."
Thinking for a moment, Roland said, "Okay, 15,000 it is. Youre truly frank, so Ill be frank
"Thank you very much." Carrot was stunned, and his eyes became unfocused. It seemed that he was off on the Internet making the transfer. A moment later, he refocused his eyes on Roland. "The money has been transferred. Please confirm it, Mr. Roland."
Roland confirmed that he had indeed received the transfer.
So, he took out four bags from his Backpack and gave them to the buyers. "You can make a count."
Carrot waved his hand and stored the four bags in his own system Backpack. Then he said, "Mr. Roland, we have another little favor to ask of you."
Roland was in a great mood after finishing the transaction. He said, "What is it? Ill give you a hand as long as I can."
"Would you please die?"
While he talked, the five buyers dropped five magic scrolls.
Five layers of Dimensional Anchors were instantly unleashed, and almost a hundred transparent spatial chains emerged from the void and locked the space nearby tightly.
"Whats the meaning of this?"
Roland subconsciously stepped back and looked at the locked space. If there were only two scrolls of Dimensional Anchors, Roland couldve escaped with a flash by trying his best.
However the task was impossible with five scrolls.
"Exactly what I just said." There wasnt any satisfaction or hate on Carrots face. Instead, he seemed vaguely apologetic. "Were hoping that we can kill you."
Roland got it. "So, this is a trap for me. You eased my wariness with a deal that involved millions of yuan so that I would fall into your
"Not exactly. We had truly intended to purchase gold coins, and we wanted to kill you too. I just thought that it would be convenient to do both at the same time."
"Then why do you want to kill me?" Roland secretly summoned his mental power, preparing to break free. But he wanted to learn more useful information now that someone had set up such a major trap. For example, he wanted to find out if they were hired by anyone. "Were Spell Breakers." Carrot smiled. "We need an opportunity to show ourselves to everybody, or it would be pointless for us to continue in this class. The regular Mage players are dumb as hell, and its boring to fight Warlocks and Priests whose spells are always the same. Its not allowed to kill the NPC Mages. So, only you, the most powerful Mage in the whole server, deserve our attention."
Even though Roland had always been calm, he felt greatly shocked after hearing that.
Since this was a game, many players behaviors were actually unpredictable.
Besides, Roland thought that these people might already have started livestreaming.
His guess was correct.
A stream channel named "Spell Breakers To Kill Roland" had been opened five minutes earlier.
At this moment, more than a hundred thousand netizens were waiting in the channel. "Damn it. Its really a deal worth millions! Theyve really put a lot of money forth just in order to kill Roland!"
"How else could Roland have been drawn here?"
"They needed those gold coins in the first place, so there isnt exactly any cost! Theyre just good at taking advantage of the environment and the incidents around them!"
"Theres no cost? Every Dimensional Anchor scroll costs at least ten gold coins, and five means fifty gold coins. That is to say, theyve already spent a million just to keep Roland earthbound. Whats extravagance if not this?"
"Five Spell Breakers! And the space has been locked by super space anchors! Rolands survival isnt certain now that hes lost his mobility!"
"The bet about whether or not Roland can survive is on! Join this chat, 5XXXXX, if you want to participate!"
