Lord Of The Mysteries Webnovel Chapter 1382
As Amon spoke, Klein appeared to be listening, but he had actually attempted to leave Sefirah Castle.
This wasnt because he wanted to give up or surrender, nor was it because he was too timid and subconsciously considered fleeing first. Instead, he believed that this was the best solution for the current situation.
If he stayed in Sefirah Castle, Klein would face three difficult questions.
Firstly, he had just advanced to The Fool and his condition was extremely unstable. He had to divert a large portion of his mental strength to suppress the awakening will of the Celestial Worthy of Heaven and Earth for Blessings. Secondly, there was no way for him to obtain the help of his allies; he could only fight alone. Thirdly, under the situation that everyone could influence Sefirah Castle, even if Klein had a deeper level of control over Sefirah Castle, he wouldnt be able to express an overwhelming advantage. He might even be disrupted in his use of Sefirah Castle because his opponent was good at making use of loopholes and creating bugs, making it difficult for him to reach the same level as "Him."
This way, when a Sequence 0 The Fool faced a half-crazed, dual-pathway Error and Door, even if he wasnt in a scenario of facing a 100% failure rate, the chances of winning were extremely minute.
And by taking the opportunity to escape Sefirah Castle, Klein could immediately obtain the help of his allies to reverse the situation between the two.
If Amon were to chase after "Him," Klein would interfere with "His" return to Sefirah Castle and make "Him" face "His" allies. At that time, the Primordial Demoness would definitely not attack again. The ancient sun god might not be able to reproduce the power of half a Great Old One anytime soon. With the lead of the Evernight Goddess, the six orthodox deities were enough to deal with Amon.
Even if Amon, who was in control of all the authorities of the Error and Door domains, wasnt easily killed, the orthodox deities would definitely be able to weaken "Him" and seal "Him." After Klein stabilized his mental state and deepened his control over Sefirah Castle, he could then kill "Him" in a targeted manner.
This process was almost irreversibleeven if the ancient sun god could still produce the level, status, and strength from before. "His" limit appeared to be suppressing three orthodox deities at the same time, and this didnt include the Evernight Goddess.
Of course, the Outer Deities were undoubtedly unwilling to see the birth of a new Lord of the Mysteries. Once such a situation happened, "They" would definitely try their best to interfere, preventing Amon from dying. However, before the world barrier collapsed, the influence "They" could exert would be rather limited, and it might not be of much use. Just like before, Klein believed that the combined powers of the Dark Side of the Universe and the Chained God were inferior to the Hidden Sage.
Even if the Outer Deities managed to affect the situation, Klein wouldnt suffer any losses. After all, those existences wouldnt allow Amon to kill him either. He could find a place to hide and stabilize his mental state. Once he was prepared, he could make new plans againthe foggy town of the Evernight Goddess was a very good choice.
If Amon didnt chase after him and remained inside Sefirah Castle. Klein could use his identity as the owner of Sefirah Castle to influence the control of all kinds of matters within at any moment, preventing Amon from doing anything in Sefirah Castle. Even if "He" wanted to use the crimson star to deal with the Tarot Club members, it would be impossible.
In short, it would be extremely difficult for either of "Them" to use Sefirah Castle well, but destroying the other partys attempts was definitely simple.
Under such a stalemate, Klein had time to stabilize his mental state, deepening his control over Sefirah Castle, slowly turning the situation around.
Towards the end, Amon would either flee and hide, or "He" would let the Celestial Worthy of Heaven and Earth for Blessings completely revive, choosing to have an internecine outcome with Klein.
Therefore, although he didnt have the time to analyze the pros and cons, Klein quickly came to a conclusion.
Leaving Sefirah Castle now was the best choice.
However, just as his consciousness sank to the edge of Sefirah Castle, he saw a crystal monocle.
This item appeared in time, crushing Kleins hopes of escaping.
"Did you think Id leave such an obvious loophole? Of course, you can stop me from leaving Sefirah Castle at any time." Amon curled "His" index finger and pressed it against the monocle as "He" smiled.
Behind the chair that "He" was sitting on, the resplendent symbol rapidly changed. At times, it was formed from symbols corresponding to parasitizing, time, and fate. At times, it was a series of doors.
These two different symbols appeared one after another, making it impossible to truly be fixed.
Klein didnt hear what Amon said. The moment he failed, he created a real Realm of Mysteriesa complete divine kingdom of The Fool.
Light and shadows instantly changed in front of Amons eyes. It brought with it the disappearance of the grand palace, mottled table, and luxurious high-back chair, bringing with it an ancient castle.
Amon wasnt sure what the ancient castle looked like. This was because "He" was standing in a corridor inside the castle. "He" could only sense the various changes in Sefirah Castle and see with the limited vision "He" had.
The corridor was unusually dark and gloomy. The corridor stretched endlessly. There were silver-colored elegant candle stands spaced widely apart, each producing a dim and yellow glow.
There were dark red wooden doors on both sides of the corridor that seemed to connect to different rooms.
There was no sound from the rooms, making it virtually impossible to know what was hidden inside.
Amon casually glanced at it and smiled with interest.
As the most powerful Cryptologist, "He" naturally knew that this was a divine kingdom, one that couldnt be broken through with brute force.
This was because every door was "Reassembled" with different items. If "He" forcefully broke through them, he would trigger unknown effects. Amon didnt underestimate the abilities and intelligence of a Sequence 0 The Fool. "He" didnt plan on experiencing any more surprises or accidents.
However, once the divine kingdoms rules were fixed, its owner would similarly be restricted to a certain extent.
To put it simply, Klein was definitely in one of the rooms, not somewhere else.
One had to bear the corresponding responsibility for the benefits obtained.
"You want to use this method to stall for time and stabilize your mental state?" Amon whispered as though "He" was talking to an invisible person.
Then, wearing a pointed hat and a classic black robe, "He" walked to the nearest dark red wooden door.
There were no holes on the wooden door, so "He" couldnt see the exact situation inside.
In other words, it was very difficult for Amon to know if Klein was here without opening the door.
The corners of Amons mouth curled up slightly. Amon extended "His" right hand and drew a long rectangular shape on the dark red wooden door.
Inside the rectangle, bits of starlight emerged and turned transparent, revealing the scene in the room.
With the authority of Door and the ability of Bug, Amon forcibly opened a window without triggering the effects.
Following that, "He" cast "His" gaze into the room.
There were no tables, chairs, carpets, and other furniture, but a blue sea.
"Indeed, this door has been connected with the sea outside," Amon said without any surprise.
Once "He" twisted the door, "He" would leave Sefirah Castle and appear in the sea outside.
And at that time, with Klein being wary, it was almost impossible for "Him" to enter Sefirah Castle again, just like how Klein was unable to leave Sefirah Castle.
This was the reason why Amon didnt forcibly destroy The Fools divine kingdom but opened one door at a time.
Destruction led to similar effects. The repeated effects would affect Amon again and again. Even if there were many loopholes that "He" could use, "He" wouldnt be completely immune to them.
Retracting "His" gaze, Amon walked to the opposite room and opened a window according to the method from before.
However, this time, it was pitch-black inside, and "He" couldnt see anything.
Amon raised "His" hand and pinched the edge of "His" monocle and coughed lightly.
"His" figure instantly split into two.
The number of Amons increased.
The split Amon glanced at Amon, who stood in the same spot and tsked.
"Why arent you seeking the thrill yourself?"
As "He" spoke, this Amon extended "His" right palm and grabbed the handle of the dark red wooden door.
Just as "He" began twisting, "His" expression suddenly turned blank as "He" sat down, as though "He" had lost the ability to think.
"Fooling effect." The original Amon nodded slightly.
The retarded Amon immediately collapsed and turned into a transparent worm with twelve segments.
Tiny bits of Beyonder characteristic seeped out and returned to Amons body.
"He" relied on using the loophole to avoid the negative effects of "His" avatars from acting on "His" actual body.
After all the Beyonder characteristics returned, Amon released a flame that had been stolen and burned the corpse of the Worm of Time.
After doing this leisurely, "He" looked up and adjusted the monocle on "His" right eye.
On the crystal monocle, countless symbols, patterns, and labels appeared. They moved quickly, interweaving, reforming, or changing, as though they were making calculations.
This was a combination of a Cryptologists power of decryption and the Key of Stars authority on position.
The two attempts Amon made were mainly to gather intelligence, grasp the rules, and prepare for cracking the secrets of The Fools divine kingdom.
Soon, the symbols, patterns, and labels formed a scene on the monocle:
Behind a dark red wooden door, a few slippery tentacles extended out from Kleins body. He sat on a high-back chair and calmly watched the entrance.
The corners of Amons mouth curled up. With a flash, "He" appeared in the room.
However, everything before "His" eyes suddenly collapsed.
Klein with The Fools aura quickly turned thin, turning into a card.
On the card, Roselle Gustav was wearing a gorgeous head accessory and colorful clothes, holding a stick with luggage hanging from it. His eyes were filled with longing.
The Fool card.
The Fool card from the Cards of Blasphemy.
Klein knew that relying solely on Paper Figurine Substitutes and adding the "Fooling" effect and "Grafting" his true aura onto it wouldnt be able to deceive a top-notch Swindler like Amon. Therefore, he used The Fool card which had some convergence powers as his paper figurine.
Although Sefirah Castle couldnt be used again, this was Kleins home ground after all. There was his junk pile, the various items he had gathered, and the newly obtained Trunsoest Brass Book and the borrowed Magic Wishing Lamp.
