Custom Made Demon King Chapter 112
The gold produced in the Abyss actually carried a curse power that could cause misfortune. This was something Roy did not expect.
Captain Jack Sparrows bad luck was still continuing. Unless he could spend the gold and transfer it to others, Roy felt that this continuous bad luck would kill him sooner or later.
And what Roy was thinking about now was the souls of people who held the demon gold after being killed by bad luck.
If he could effortlessly obtain a large number of souls through this demon gold, would that not be very satisfying?
However, the real situation was that the gold mine Roy found in the Abyss must have been discovered by other demons before, but they had not paid much attention to it. As a result, the gold mine had been there for a long time without any signs of excavation.
Therefore, Roy could only guess that this demon gold might be useless to demons!
The demons also had to know that the curse power attached to the gold could curse greedy people to death. But something like gold was circulated after all, and not everyone who obtained the gold would die of bad luck. They would spend the gold most of the time. This way, they would no longer be exposed to the gold anymore, and the curse of misfortune would gradually dissipate.
This led to the curse of misfortune being uncertain.
Apart from this uncertainty, Roy guessed that there might be another possibility. Even if someone really died of bad luck, these souls of those who died of bad luck would not directly appear in the hands of the demons but instead need the demons to retrieve them. This was a very troublesome matter, and it was probably the real reason why demons did not care about the gold.
After all, Roy did not sense any force or anything connecting him to the gold after giving it to Jack Sparrow If this truly were the case, it would be such a pity for the gold! It was clearly a very good thing
Roy touched his demon horns and could not help but start thinking if he could do something to change the situation of demon
Perhaps he could leave a special mark on the demon gold, and this mark could make the soul of someone who died from the curse of misfortune return to his hands automatically after being exposed?
Gold was something that could be preserved for a long time. If he could engrave this special mark on the gold, Roy would spread a portion of the demon gold with the mark every time he went to a world, allowing it to circulate in this world for decades and centuries. Then the gold would turn into long-term meal tickets and continuously transfer souls to Roy!
This thought made Roys heart race. Even if only one out of ten people who had come into contact with the demon gold died from bad luck, it would still become a huge number after accumulating for a while.
The curse of the demon gold was also determined based on the greed of the human heart. If someone was too greedy and held a large amount of gold, the curse of misfortune would be stronger, and it would only make them die faster. It would be Roys loss if he did not take the souls of such greedy people for almost nothing.
However, it was quite difficult to create such a mark.
Because Roy could not stay in a world for long, and he would have to return to the Abyss sooner or later, the souls would quickly dissipate without special preservation. This led to Roy needing to have the ability to teleport souls across worlds in order to retrieve them in the Abyss. To achieve this function, it would probably consume a lot of souls.
Moreover, the mark also needed to be preserved with the gold for a long time. To ensure this, the mark might require powerful magic power. And if he had to engrave such a mark on every gold bar, even Roy might not be able to take it. Therefore, after engraving this mark, it was best to have it last forever once and for all. This was another huge consumption
In short, just thinking about it made Roy feel that such a mark was not easy to make
Currently, Roy had more than 3,400 souls, all of which he had obtained after constantly attacking pirates. Especially when he fought against Pirate Lord Ammands fleet, Roy had unleashed his Halo of Fear and obtained many high-grade souls. So these 3,400-plus souls could be used as nearly 4,000.
Roy reckoned that this amount of souls might be enough, but Roy felt his heart ache at the thought of spending so many at once.
However, this was equivalent to taking out a large sum of money to invest. In the later stages of the investment, you would be able to recoup the money through dividends. As long as there was enough time, the original investment would be able to be returned
Roy estimated that Frostmourne had cost more than 1,400 souls to make. If Frostmourne could be regarded as orange equipment, then something made with four thousand souls should be at the dark gold level, right? And if he could use tens of thousands of souls to create an item, then it should be at the level of a divine artifact!
Just as Roy was thinking about how he should design and define the attributes of this mark, Cassandra suddenly warned Roy. "Master, there are a lot of ships on the sea!"
Upon hearing this, Roy could only interrupt his observation of Jack Sparrow. After ordering the Demon Eye to continue following, he stood up and looked in the direction that Cassandra was pointing.
Sure enough, Cassandra was right. On the sea far away, he could vaguely see a large number of sails and masts. There were more than thirty ships, and all of them seemed to be large ships.
These ships were sailing at a steady, moderate pace. Roy could not tell what ships they were, but they did not look like pirate ships but instead like warships?
Since they were not pirate ships, Roy could not be bothered. He returned to his chair and sat down, leaving Cassandra to continue observing the warships.
However, not long later, Cassandra shouted to Roy, "Master, those warships seem to have discovered us. Theyve changed course and are heading toward us."
"Huh? What are they up to?" Roy was puzzled, so he picked up the small spyglass left behind by Jack Sparrow and looked at the warships.
He thought that these warships might be from the Royal Navy, but unexpectedly, after seeing the flags on the ships, Roy realized that these warships were actually Spanish warships!
"Its not the Royal Navy but the Invincible Armada?!" Roy was confused. He did not know much about the historical background of the Pirates of the Caribbean world. After all, it was a magically revised world that could not be viewed as real history. But this was the Caribbean Sea, and the ones active here should be the Royal Navy. Why did he not see the Royal Navy and instead met the Spanish first?
Just as Roy was feeling puzzled, Cassandra suddenly said, "M-Master!" "Whats wrong?" Roy asked.
"I-I remember now!" Cassandra said. "When I was in the village, I saw the same flag as these ships have"
"Oh? So youre Spanish?" Roy reacted. Roy could understand various languages by using the language of souls, so while he could understand what other people were saying, he might not necessarily be able to tell what language they were using. As a lich, Cassandra used the language of the undead, and she was just a little girl from the countryside. She did not know much and could not tell where her hometown was, so it was only now that Roy knew that she was Spanish.
This was really If Cassandra had discovered this a little later, Roy might have already prepared to kill his way to the church in England to avenge her
"They seem to be getting ready to attack us?"
Looking at the Spanish warships across from him through the spyglass, Roy saw a large number of soldiers busy moving on the decks. Roy was even more confused when he saw the dense cannons on the sides of the ships.
I dont seem to have offended the Spanish, have I? Why were they preparing to attack the moment they came without saying anything? Do they know what theyre facing?
