Reborn: Evolving From Nothing / Reborn: Evolving From Nothing Chapter 92

“Yes, exactly . With a natural treasure like this Fire-Aspected Golden Leaf in your Spatial Ring, alongside the trove of other Magic Herbs you have, there is a nonzero chance of a dangerous interaction or explosion . Here, I have a spare Spatial Pouch you can have . ”

Dorian smiled as the friendly Wizard, a man named Quint he learned, handed him back his Spatial Ring, intact with all of his belongings, as well as a gold colored leaf, tinged with red and a small brown pouch .

‘That wasn’t at all how I thought this would go down . ‘ He mentally shrugged .

When the Wizard had surrounded him with his bodyguards, essentially ambushing him in the alley, Dorian had prepared himself to smash them away with no regard . He was a powerful, Lord Class expert now . No longer did he need to cower or run .

His initial expectations had been proven completely wrong . Back on Earth, he’d read some fantasy stories where thieves would ambush someone in a dark alley, robbing them of their belongings .

He’d thought he’d found himself in a similar situation . He’d even handed over his ring to see what the Wizard would try .

He shook his head, smiling slightly . This was real life, after all . Just because he’d read of fantasy situations like that in books on Earth didn’t mean things would go the same way here .

“My apologies for the rude interruption . ” The Wizard said, bowing slightly to Dorian .

“The danger present to you, and to those around you, was too severe . “

Dorian looked down at the Golden Leaf .

He had been gifted it earlier by Bella . It was a rare Natural Treasure, according to Ausra, one that was imbued with Fire Energy, as well as strings of Life Energy . It was a useful ingredient in forming Pills that healed injuries to the soul, and could also be used to gain a temporary feel for the Law of Fire .

He didn’t know what he would do with it yet . With his Ifrit form, Dorian didn’t feel like he exactly needed a closer connection to the Law of Fire . Even when he practiced his magic in his other forms, he still maintained a strong connection that vastly accelerated his learning speed .

He could now perfectly cast the Fire Magic: Flame Swords Spell, an Earth Class Spell . He’d gained such a mastery for it that he felt comfortable starting a new spell later on today .

Fire Magic: Blazing Sword . A complex, Sky Class Spell . The first Sky Class Spell he would attempt, skipping over other Earth Class Spells . It was very similar to his Flame Swords in that he was forming a sword made out of fire . Only, this sword would be much larger, at nearly 5 meters in length . A powerful, destructive spell .

The gap in difficulty and complexity between each spell was significant . However, Dorian’s Ifrit form was essentially a cheat when it came to Fire Magic, one that he intended to take full advantage of .

They weren’t called the Rulers of Flame for nothing, after all .

“No, you’re fine . It’s rare to meet someone with real, honest intentions . ” Dorian spoke aloud, his focus returning to the blue robed Grandmaster Wizard .

He was honestly surprised by the genuine concern the Wizard showed . After living in the 30,000 Worlds for as long as he had, he’d come to expect dishonesty and betrayal .

If it was real, that was . Dorian couldn’t help but hold a slight seed of doubt .

“Ah, well . ” The Wizard began, patting on his shoulders as if to build himself up,

“As a member of the Free School of Thunder, it is my obligation to warn others of the dangers they may be in . ” He said grandly . Or, well, he attempted to say grandly . His tone fell rather short, though he gave it a good try . He didn’t quite have a deep enough voice to make it work .

The name vaguely rang a bell in Dorian’s head . When he’d researched the powers in the 30,000 Worlds, he’d read a few sidenotes about groups that were powerful, but not as significantly powerful as, say, the Borrel Autarchy . The Free School of Thunder was one of them, if he recalled correctly, but he wasn’t too sure . The information he’d read had said little about them .

“I’d recommend you find a use for that natural treasure as soon as possible . The distinct air it gives off is recognizable to anyone that has spent time with natural treasures before . Less generous souls than me might attempt to take advantage of your low strength . ” Quint nodded at him, giving him advice .

Dorian smiled internally . His human form, indeed, didn’t give off a particularly powerful Aura . His true strength, however, was far from weak .

Still . He appreciated Quint’s kindness .

“Well, thank you anyway . I will take your words to heart . ” Dorian shook hands with the odd Wizard .

“Yes, so will I . They were good words . ” Quint nodded, completely serious .

“Well, I must be off . I have a long journey to make, to a land of danger and peril, full of great treasure and wonder . To a set of ruins that are legendary!” The Wizard began, his eyes shining .

Dorian’s eyes narrowed slightly when he heard this .

“Are you, perchance, journeying to the Ascension Ruins on Magmor?” He queried .

Quint gave Dorian a winning smile,

“No, of course not . Why would I want to go there? I’m obviously going to Blizzaria, to one of the many ancient ruins there . Why else would I be in this city?”

“Um- no- right, yes . Ah . Of course . ” Dorian stuttered, stumbling over his words in surprise at the abrupt answer . He mentally berated himself . Everyone he met wasn’t going to be heading to the same place as him . The world didn’t revolve around him .

“It’s okay, young man . Just keep up your practice . I’m sure you’ll gain the strength to stand on your feet proudly one day, just like me . ” Quint patted Dorian on the shoulder, ignoring the fact that Quint himself was almost certainly younger than Dorian, and then motioned at his two warriors . In a group they turned around and left the alley, leaving Dorian with a friendly wave .

Dorian watched them go, his hands held out slightly to the side in consternation . He stored the natural treasure in the Spatial Pouch, after looking it over to make sure it was just a normal pouch . It was . He then shook his head .

“What an odd fellow . I wonder if their whole School is like that?” He shrugged,


“What an odd fellow . I wonder if their whole School is like that?” He shrugged,

“Well, time to go prepare to leave . ”

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The next day…

“Fire Magic: Blazing Sword . ” Dorian clasped his hands together as he focused, looking at the air above him .

A vast number of magic symbols flashed through his head, sparkling about with color, light, and energy . He guided the power of his soul into a deep pattern, one he focused on fully .

Not a moment later, the image of a large, 5 meter long sword of fire began to appear in the air . The sword was roughly a meter thick, shaped like a heavy broadsword . Sparks and embers fluttered off of it, cascading into the air .

WHOOSH

The sword collapsed in on itself, sending up a small explosion of flames as Dorian’s concentration wavered, missing a single symbol in the chain he was forming .

“Damn it . ” Dorian watched the flames flash into the air and sparkle, quickly fading behind him as he journeyed forward .

He was currently sitting down on the edge of a large, floating ship . This ship was made entirely out of wood, a ship very similar to one that William was able to cast . A Wood Magic Spell . The ships were formed by Wood Magic in addition to a special type of magic artifact that allowed for long-term usage .

This ship was soaring through the sky, following a group of 8 other ships in front of them . Each ship spanned nearly a hundred meters in length, with large, billowing sails of magic energy propelling them forward .

According to Bella, this was a chartered ‘Fast Caravan’ that they had joined . A magical transport service that was operated by a transport group, the Tone Transportation Alliance . They were actually a B+ rated mercenary team that offered protective transportation to anywhere on Paxital, and to many other planets within range .

Including even certain regions of Blizzaria .

Paxital was not controlled by any single great power, partially as a result of its location near the borders of the Shade Commune, one of the small, yet influential, Vampire Families, and the Borrel Autarchy . As a result of that, mercenary groups or smaller powers held a much greater sway .

While the resources on Paxital weren’t vast, as it was a Lesser World, its function as a hubworld, and nearness to treasure troves like Blizzaria, made it a lucrative location .

“Woah . ” Wind whipped past Dorian as he leaned over the rail, watching as the sparks of flame fizzled out . His hair in his human form fluttered .

There was an invisible layer of energy protecting the ship from any discordant wind as it soared across the continent, flying at a fast speed . With it like this, they would be able to reach the edge of the continent in a mere 2 days, traveling hundreds and thousands of miles with ease and comfort .

“I didn’t catch that you were a Fire Wizard . ” A calm voice caught Dorian’s attention as he stepped away from the edge .

“I didn’t catch that you were a Fire Wizard . ” A calm voice caught Dorian’s attention as he stepped away from the edge .

Dorian turned to face the speaker . It was Bella, the Luck Wizard .

He shrugged,

“There are many things that I am . ”

A peaceful calm settled as the echoes of the rushing wind faded from Dorian’s ears . This entire ship had been rented and reserved for their team . The other ships were chartered for different groups or people .

Excelsior was one of the premier cities on the continent and had a large concentration of powerful figures . Blizzaria was largely considered a dangerous land of treasure and adventure, so it was little surprise .

As a result, it regularly had caravans like this one moving back and forth between different popular areas .

“I wanted to ask you something, Bella . ” Dorian continued, turning his full focus to her .

Bella gave him an inquisitive look, and then waved him on,

“Would you mind telling me a little about your Luck Magic? I’ve never heard of it before and was just curious how it works . It sounds incredible!” He put on his best impression of a layman .

“It sounds like you can change the Fate of anyone at will!”

Bella blinked for a moment, lost in thought, before replying,

“Well, sure . Since you’re coming with us, I don’t mind . ” She nodded,

“My Luck Magic, and the Law of Luck I study, isn’t as grand as you imagine . It just lets me affect the odds of something happening, as long as it is related to me . The less something is related to me, the harder it is to affect it . ”

Internally, Dorian narrowed his eyes . It sounded very similar to his own unique soul twisting Fate .

“It’s hard to use, even for me . Breaking into the Lord Class was one of the hardest things I have ever done, and my grandest accomplishment in life . My power makes me a perfect support teammate, and is part of why I formed my ‘Warrior Women’ mercenary team . ” She continued,

“My father had his own team, called the ‘Brash Boys . ‘ A ridiculous name, I know, but he was a bit ridiculous in his time . ” She smiled as she talked, her eyes growing distant as she spoke of her father .

Dorian nodded, listening attentively .

Meanwhile…

Several thousand meters away, a very different conversation was taking place .
Meanwhile…

Several thousand meters away, a very different conversation was taking place .

“Are you ready, Lord Hadrion?” A cynical voice called out,

“Stop calling me that . I already told you I have nothing to do with that Black Lightning Wizard prodigy . ” A gruff, older voice responded, full of irritation .

“You share the same name-“

“It’s Hadron, damn it . Not Hadrion . Completely different . ”

A large, floating boulder stood roughly two thousand meters in the air, drifting in between a few low clouds . This boulder was nearly 50 meters wide, with a largely flat top . It appeared to be made of some dark brown rock, and gave off faint particles of energy . A creation of Magic .

On this rock, a large team of warriors and Wizards milled about, waiting patiently . They all wore black robes or black armor, alongside black masks and hoods, hiding their appearances completely .

Two Wizards stood at the front of the group, talking to each other . They appeared largely the same as the 4 other Wizards in the group . Donning simple black robes and masks, hiding their appearance .

Hadron sighed, looking at his comrade,

“My Collision Magic is far superior to his, anyway, David . I’m just a step away from breaching into the King Class, and dominating on my own . ” His voice was full of gruff confidence .

“Sure, sure . ” The other Wizard, David, replied, waving his hands in surrender . David paused for a moment, looking around the floating boulder .

“Don’t you think our forces are a bit overkill? 22 Lord Class warriors, and 6 Lord Class Wizards, including you and I at the Peak? It’s just a small B- team . Hardly worth such a great effort . ”

Hadron shrugged,

“It is what it is . Leader wants no room for error or mistakes . You know how he is about little things . We must be getting close to taking over Paxital . ”

“Now…” Hadron’s eyes flashed under his mask as he looked forward, into the distance .

At a caravan of wooden ships that were soaring through the sky, passing by them right now .

“Let’s get on with it then . ” He clapped his hands loudly, turning to face the other masked warriors and Wizards .

“Everyone, prepare yourselves to attack! Last warning!”

.
