Long Live Summons! - Chapter 766.2
The puzzle set up by Xue Wu Xia was literally a nightmare. The constant evolving of the Heaven Realm Rune diagram formations would lead the person attempting to crack the puzzle deeper into a spiral of despair.
Sickly Beauty was kinder, and she didn’t want her opponent to go crazy while trying to break her chess puzzle.
Of course, she didn’t want the other person to crack it successfully either.
So, the sick beauty set up a “Dazzling Eye”. It was a pattern that evolved from the Dazzling Eye’s numerous and densely packed array of Heaven Realm Runes.
To solve this kind of chess puzzle, a single pair of eyes were nowhere near enough to constantly monitor the entire board. Multiple runes that were unrelated to the actual puzzle, as well as thousands of different combinations of morphing runes would dazzle one’s eyes, creating a masterpiece that would defeat any attempt to solve it. Of course, if one was proficient in the various diagrams of Heaven Realm Runes and realized that this was a combination of The Desperate Nightmare and The Dazzling Eye patterns, it wouldn’t be difficult to crack it.
As for Yue Yang, he did not ask for any hints from Xue Wu Xia or Sickly Beauty, yet he only needed to spend ten minutes before he successfully cracked both puzzles.
“What? Third Young Master has cracked two unsolvable chess puzzles?” The City Lord, Tu Hai, rushed to see Lord Ling Yun, but even Lord Ling Yun was startled.
Once he heard “Yue Yang has solved two unsolvable puzzles in just one night”.
He was greatly shocked!
Lord Ling Yun, whose interest had been aroused, also attempted to solve the chess puzzles, now named The Ten Absolute Chess Puzzles”, at his palace… As a result, to his surprise, he ended up like City Lord Tu Hai, unable to make even a single move.
No matter which move he made, he immediately lost the game…
Among the ten puzzles, there was only one puzzle which looked relatively easy. That was the one that the old chess master had cracked overnight.
As for the remaining nine chess puzzles, Lord Ling Yun had stood and stared at them for half a day, with a chess piece in hand, but ultimately, he still could not put it down anywhere on the board! Lord Ling Yun was depressed, if he could at least make a move, he would create an opening. That was a much better outcome than not being able to make any move at all. Were all his years of playing chess in vain?
“My lord, this cracked game is obviously easier. The opponent must have set it according to our standards, lest we be embarrassed by our inability to crack even a single puzzle. In addition, these five puzzles have certain similarities, obviously they came from the same person’s hand. This person’s mastery of chess is a thousand times better than myself. Coming up with even one puzzle of this difficulty would be very rare. Furthermore, there are five of them here. Whoever laid out these five puzzles, I would guess, should be the teacher of Third Young Master or an elder from his clan. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be such wisdom in them”. For these following two puzzles, Tu Hai felt a kind of spiritual pull towards them, and his mind could not help but be pulled into the puzzle, causing him to be unable to think clearly. These two puzzles should have been the work of Third Young Master himself, as he is extremely good at hiding his abilities, always giving off a sense of mystery about him. It’s as if one is peering into a fog. As for the last two puzzles, CIty Lord Tu Hai didn’t even dare to comment about them. They were totally beyond the capability of Tu Hai to comprehend…. Both puzzles were remnants of a complete game. There were thousands of possible steps that could be made. What was even more stunning was that both of these puzzles looked as if they could be merged into one bigger puzzle, creating even more branches and possibilities. Tu Hai had studied these puzzles all day and night. Now, he could finally identify slight differences in each of the two puzzles.
“There’s no mistake. If you’re talking about difficulty, these two are the highest. The other five should be ranked second. These two puzzles that have some hidden mental indications are extremely difficult, but on the other hand, they should have some kind of trick to them. If we want to crack these puzzles, these two games must be our main focus. By the way, what are these two puzzles called?” Lord Ling Yun asked.
“This puzzle which has less pieces is called ‘Silence’, while this puzzle which has more pieces, and looks more complex, is known as ‘Clarity’. In Tu Hai’s eyes, their names were simply rhetorical. When trying to solve “Silence” one’s heart would become restless, fidgety, and one was unable to think quietly… When trying to solve “Clarity”, one’s eyes would be dazzled, dizzied, and it was difficult to free oneself from the puzzle… In order to solve these two puzzles, Tu Hai had not slept and eaten for a full day and night, it was literally as if he was trying to solve them with his life! Tu Hai shook his head and sighed.
“What about those five?” Lord Ling Yun laughed and asked again.
“Their names, Blood Vomiting Spectrum, one, two, three, four, five, I feel that’s an apt name, as it’s impossible to crack these games without vomiting at least three liters of blood. It’s just that I don’t know how high their mastery of the game must be, to fabricate five such exquisite puzzles.”
For the last two sets, Tu Hai waved his hand to indicate that these two sets were nameless.
There were no names worthy of them either.
He suspected that only the wisdom of the gods could have created such chess puzzles.
“This Third Young Master is truly a rare genius in this world. Tu Hai, arrange an opportunity for this king to meet with this man as well.” Lord Ling Yun made this decision after some thought.
