Mages Are Too OP - Chapter 685
Chapter 685 – Relying On Yourself Is Better Than Relying On Others
Kujira was quite well-regarded lately. Roland was a student he taught, and many saw and heard him inspire and teach Roland in the area of material transformation. It could be said that Kujira received a lot of credit for Roland’s ability to create the sugar-making spell so quickly. As a mentor, Kujira was naturally happy to teach and nurture his students, because he wanted to see them become successful.
But when faced with praise from his peers, he was still very calm and brushed off the matter by saying that it was all Roland’s skill and that he had nothing to do with it.
After all, a man of several dozen years had to have this kind of sophistication.
When people were happy, they tended to eat more.
Eating some salted beans and sipping on some high-quality fruit wine could get the taste of yogurt. He was happily drinking wine at home when he suddenly heard the maidservant say that a Mage calling himself Roland was visiting.
He immediately asked the maidservant to bring the man in, while he slightly straightened his clothes and then went to the study.
Kujira still had a slight tipsy look when Roland saw him.
Generally, Mages didn’t drink, but for someone like Kujira, whose path in magic had almost come to an end and who put his focus on teaching his students, it was normal to drink from time to time.
“Have a seat.” Kujira gestured to the chair opposite his own and smiled gently. “Mr. Roland, what is it that you have come to see me about?”
“I’ve encountered something I don’t understand and would like to ask you for advice.”
“As long as I understand it, I’ll answer you.”
Kujira was satisfied. He liked students who worked hard and had self-control. If it was any other student who was not so steady and had no self-control, after making such an impressive spell that it was known all over the world, they would probably be too proud and end up happily attending one social dinner after another, wasting their time and talent.
“You said before, mentor, that Rope Trick is a false space, a space within a space, but after I tested it, I found that the space is not in the main plane.” Roland stated his doubts and finally asked, “Why would you think it is a false space?”
“Because it will disappear.” Kujira explained, “Space should have stability and should be permanent, not increasing or decreasing. This is what the spatial master, Jecalot, has said. As for what you said, it is not in the space of the main plane; that is because it is a magic effect in itself! A magic effect that makes it untouchable.”
Space must have stability? Who says that space must have stability? If we go by this theory, the universe should not be expanding, nor would it be formed by some singularity explosion. Or does the space of this world just have to have stability?
No… at least the space produced by the Rope Trick is unstable.
If this thing is real space.
He had a vague feeling that that spatial master Jecalot was not correct.
But he wasn’t some hotheaded young man, and even if he had doubts in his mind, he wouldn’t share them now.
After all, he was just a rather talented young Mage with a slight weight in his words. To openly question a recognized spatial master?
He didn’t have that qualification and reputation yet.
Putting this doubt aside first, Roland continued, “Mentor, so how do I discover, or go about colliding with the space of Rope Trick?”
“There is no other way to enter or touch the space it creates, except to climb up from the rope.” Kujira spread his hands helplessly. “That’s what makes the Rope Trick so powerful, and that’s why it’s a pretty powerful way to save your life. Before Mystra’s Mansion, it was the best space to escape to. After all, the space produced by Mystra’s Mansion is real space. It doesn’t disappear, it exists permanently, and you can store things, isn’t that nice!”
So that’s how it is. Because of the permanent space from Mystra’s Mansion, the Rope Trick’s space that would disappear was judged as a false space?
Roland then asked some other questions about magic, and they were answered one by one.
Some of it was similar to Roland’s ideas, but more of it was the opposite.
An hour or so later, Roland solemnly thanked Kugira before leaving.
Exiting the mentor’s area, Roland walked slowly down the street while thinking about the problem.
He was a bit disappointed now. He felt that Kujira had quite a few insights of his own on magic, though it was more like reading from a book.
So over the next few days, he went to listen to other mentors as well and eventually realized that they all explained pretty much the same things.
Many magic phenomena that were not characterized, they actively discussed, but those that were characterized by predecessors weren’t given much thought.
So Roland was a little disappointed.
The atmosphere of communication in the Magic Tower, while strong, was still bound by the unspoken rules of the world. There were a lot of things they didn’t dare think much about.
But Roland also understood that this was normal.
Out of respect for the predecessors, many of the so-called “truths” couldn’t be altered, not even by a single word.
Such a phenomenon was also common in the ancient times of the Celestial Empire.
This was understandable.
But for open academic communication, one must dare to question the predecessors, to think openly.
Roland stopped going to class again and started to study Rope Trick in his dormitory. If his idea was correct, Rope Trick should be a powerful spell.
He used the spell again and again, recorded the node fluctuations of this spell, and analyzed its data.
He even checked if this spell had a nodal magic array as matter transformation did.
Sure enough, on the seven hundred and thirty-second test, he found an area of special nodes.
After a closer look, he found that it was a spatial magic array.
As expected of Mordenkainen’s work, it had something hidden inside.
He tried to parse this magic array, and as a result, he found that it wasn’t as difficult to understand as the divination magic array in matter transformation.
It simply created a rope out of some relative coordinate!
What about space?
Didn’t find the node array that created the space.
Could there be other magic arrays hidden in these nodes?
Roland found it unbelievable that he had split the spell model into ten or so structural diagrams and also conducted a lot of experiments, and still hadn’t found the spatial node array.
Roland found it inconceivable and took his decomposed node model to Kujira.
After listening to Roland’s doubts and looking at the dozen or so drawings with detailed node formations on his desk, Kujira finally said, “Sorry, Mr. Roland, I can’t help you in that regard. In reality, your questions were asked by someone before, but in the end, he gave up.” “Why?”
“Because magic itself is a miracle,” Kugira said with some fervor in his eyes. “The more advanced the spell, the more inexplicable it is, and you can’t possibly be able to solve all the puzzles because you can’t understand the miracle.”
Isn’t that due to the lack of knowledge?
What have miracles got to do with it!
Roland frowned. “Then what is the point of our Magic Tower exchange? Isn’t it to figure out these mysteries?”
“Communicating knowledge that allows us to understand and use magic.” Kujira gently patted Roland’s shoulder. “Child, as an old man, I advise you that there is no need to pursue things like magic mysteries too much. What you can know, you will naturally know, and what you cannot understand, you cannot force.”
Roland looked into Kujira’s eyes.
The old man’s demeanor was normal, but there was some helplessness in his eyes.
After ten seconds or so, Roland smiled. “Okay, mentor, I understand.”
Roland returned to his dormitory and began to pack his things.
He didn’t need to stay in the Transmutation Magic Tower any longer.
Although they had a strong communicative atmosphere, their academic ability was not that high due to their scope and certain special rules.
But still, it was better than other Magic Towers.
It just wasn’t enough anymore to satisfy Roland’s increasingly refined magical theories and his magic path.
Putting away the odds and ends of living supplies into his Backpack, Roland checked out of his dorm room and teleported to the capital of Fareins.
After he took care of some things with Andonara, he then teleported back to Delpon and found Vivian.
At this time, Vivian already had quite the temperament of a leader.
Originally a small beauty, and a Mage herself, though not as good-looking as Andonara, she now had a sort of dignified and impressive air about her.
She looked quite intellectual and had the sultry maturity and tenderness of a half-ripe apple.
It was very charming.
After half a day of cuddling with her, Roland said as he wrapped his arms around her under the covers, “Next, my focus will shift to Wetlands City, where, as you know, I have a large plot of land I’ve adapted to establish a magic academic organization.”
“Can our students and apprentices go there in the future?” Vivian’s eyes lit up.
“Of course.” Roland smiled and said, “So in the next few years, I may trouble you to keep watching the Magic Tower here for me.”
“That’s okay.” Vivian nodded, then she leaned against Roland’s chest and said quietly, “But you have to come back a few more times; a woman also needs a man to comfort her from time to time.”
“No problem.” Roland rolled over and pressed into her again.
About two hours later, Vivian left the manor satisfied, while Roland made a post on the forum.
I intend to establish a magic academic exchange association in Wetlands City.
“‘We have land, money, and technology, we just need friends who can communicate and are willing to share their unique skills. As long as they are Mages, they can register in the association, whether they are players or Mages in the game world. Right now, building the association is just an idea. How the association should operate, how to maintain it, and so on, I need more friends to think about it with me. Besides, we also need friends who are good at staff management and good at logistic management to help out. Of course, it is not unpaid work; I will pay a salary, the exact salary is negotiable.”
The moment he left the Transmutation Magic Tower, Roland had this thought.
For open-mindedness and imagination, the players would be the best option.
Except for the Transmutation Magic Tower, the other Magic Towers focused more on the accumulation of magic power, and when it came to learning spell models, they emphasized strength but lacked the study of the essence of magic.
They didn’t even put much emphasis on the optimization and self-adaptation of spells.
Instead of dealing with them, it would be better to unite the players.
Those player Mages were quite imaginative could probably bring him a lot of inspiration in magic. After this post appeared, it instantly became a hot topic.
And the first person who replied added some heat and “legitimacy” to this post.
O’Neal: “Roland, save me a spot as deputy chairman.”
