When Lu Zhiyu stepped into the starsoul world, he went to the wizard continent first. When he saw what the place had become, he couldn’t help his amazement at the miraculous lives the people led, and greatness of the current civilization compared to the wizard continent almost one thousand years ago.
The tower had been on the Earth around five hundred years. The wizard continent during that time was a barren land with no living creatures. Most of the continent was covered with yellow mud and bare rocks. It was located in the northern part of the world. Not only did it lack the fertile ground and plants that life forms needed to survive, but it even lacked mineral deposits, and the continent was overrun by sand and rock beasts.
When the wizards arrived, they used wizard towers to begin reconstruction on the continent and improve the quality of the soil. They grew forests and opened up land for farming. The wizard towers even imitated the supernatural abilities of gold-eating beasts which, when combined with witchcraft, could condense mineral deposits. The wizards had completely changed the continent.
Lu Zhiyu was sitting on a bench by the door of a bakery in Lenny City. He could see the rails of the public steam locomotives intersecting with each other at the center of the crossroad, across from which was a garden square enclosed by iron railings. The buildings inside the city were of all sorts of mysterious styles. It was a city full of glass, and there were fantastic and colorful windows everywhere. There was a giant clock at the top of the wizard tower.
The Great Wizard Lenny, builder of the city, had passed away a long time ago. The Lenny Wizard Tower was now run by his disciples, but the name of the tower remained.
The presence of wizards was obvious all over the city. The tall water towers and tubes were all interconnected, supplying water to the entire city. There were large interconnected alchemy gas light pillars on all the streets. Magically-reinforced transmitters that used energy power ripples to send messages replaced the originally-used wind ravens and messengers. With this, people were able to send long distance messages. Transportation, daily living and all other aspects were connected to witchcraft and wizards. Wizards had become an important part of the world. Without them, this society might crumble at any time.
Many occupations in the city were created by apprentice wizards. Only wizards and apprentice wizards with woke mind power would be able to use all sorts of witchcraft alchemy tools to maintain the normal operation of the city.
Already, small steam engine locomotives had appeared on the street. Lu Zhiyu noticed that they looked like cars except for the small chimneys attached to the backs of them, giving off steam. The new steam airships that flew across the sky looked even smaller. The airships were made of iron. Lu Zhiyu even saw that the current steam engine airships had already abandoned the original enormous balloon air bags. They were using the magically-reinforced steam engines to make the airships fly.
In the distance, there were steam engine airships of the last generation. To lessen the weight, they were made of wood with enormous masts and sails. They moved forward with the help of the wind. They had streamlined bodies and enormous wings. When they moved forward, people couldn’t help covering their ears because of the loud humming sound caused by the spinning fan blades.
There were still fighting airships in the sky, and those miniaturized airships could carry more than ten people. There were bombs and magically-reinforced machine guns onboard. These airships were smaller and more flexible, and they were much faster, both at speed and turning, than the original steam engine airships. They were the perfect weapons for war. The appearance of these war machines meant that the world would not remain at peace.
The wizard parliament managed the entire wizard continent. Each wizard tower was responsible for a city and its surrounding towns. Wizard colleges were like the previous countries. Among different wizard colleges, there were conflicts or even wars over resources and land. Although the wizard parliament and the towers would try to interfere as mediators, the colleges’ power was an important part of the negotiations.
Wherever there were human beings, conflicts were unavoidable.
“Wow! Combat airships!” exclaimed a group of children.
“The airships have started to patrol again. It’s epic!”
“I want to be a pilot of combat airships too!”
As the kids walked along the streets, they looked at the combat airships flying across the sky and screamed in amazement. As the airships spun in the sky above Lenny City and disappeared into the clouds, their hearts surged.
“I have to become a goblin helicopter pilot in the future! A trump card like goblin helicopter pilot Luke! Go!”
Among the kids was a goblin and a troll. Kids from different races put their arms on each others’ shoulders, looking at the sky. Scenes like this made people feel the inclusivity of the wizard civilization.
Lu Zhiyu couldn’t help smiling and giving praise. “I love this world, Katherine,” he said to himself. “You have indeed established a kingdom that belongs to wizards. And it’s a different world of wizards to you!”
Everything here was fresh and new to Lu Zhiyu. Theoretically, such an advancement of the steam engine wizard civilization should have led to some serious pollution and other kinds of environmental destruction. However, the air in the city was exceptionally fresh because the wizards had reinvented the steam engine machines. The more popular magically-reinforced steam engine machines had replaced the original ones which greatly reduced the pollution. Another reason for the lack of smog was the design of the wizard towers. They themselves were fundamental buildings that combined all the important city functions.
Wizard towers not only had the power to attack and defend themselves, but could give out witchcraft boundaries to regulate the environment and purify the air. Even the pollution that had gathered in the soil for a very long time could be reverted back with the help of wizard towers.
Lu Zhiyu was sitting on the side of the street, experiencing the beauty of the city and the differences in lives in the world. He observed the differences between this world and Maria’s World.
Groups of people wearing ancient capes walked in front of Lu Zhiyu. There were workers wearing uniforms, apprentice wizards wearing gray capes and alchemy apprentice goblins, as well as architecture and timber worker trolls, wearing strange hats and backpacks. No one noticed the man standing on the street, observing their lives, and they would certainly never imagine that this person was their creator, the person who gave them their lives and everything they needed to survive in this world.
The people from this world had already forgotten where they really came from. Most of them had no idea that they were from somewhere else. A world named Maria. They didn’t know the existence of orcs, sahagins, priests, The Church of Light and all the other gods. They only knew of wizards.
Lu Zhiyu only stood up after the sun had set and the night fell. The street lights were turned on, and the nightlife in the city had begun. Lu Zhiyu walked through the darkness and went toward the wizard tower.
“It’s time to go see Katherine!” he said. “Based on the flow of time in this world, I haven’t seen her for almost five hundred years!”
Lu Zhiyu had come here to visit the creators. When Katherine left, she was at level five just like Edward. It had been around five hundred years, and they were now approaching the end of their lives. If they couldn’t reach level seven, one thousand years would be the longest they were able to live. It was not a simple job to reach level seven. Wizards didn’t have the witchcraft strong enough to reach this level, nor did they have the power to deduce the abilities and techniques of mythical creature templates at level seven.
Even if they improved their mind power to level seven and deified all the cells in their bodies, they could only be pseudo-level-seven like Adonis. Without a level-seven mythical template, nobody could wield that level of power. If Adonis didn’t have the bone dragon and the power of a great ghost army, and the supernatural power hadn’t been at its lowest, he wouldn’t have been able to cause such a scene at pseudo-level-seven.
“Perhaps it’s time for me to give them the last lecture!” Lu Zhiyu said.
“It’s been a long time since the last time I gave them lectures. How many students do I still have left? Are they all… dead?”
