Chapter 309 - Evil G.o.d Temple
The Pentaband Krait King was very cunning. Seeing its venom attacks unable to do anything to Fatty, it started throwing stones and trees at him.
The higher ranked the monster, the more intelligent they were. Speaking from experience, Fatty had only seen high-rank Yao bosses or unique NPC monsters with the intelligence level of humans, and normally a low-rank Yao boss didn't possess such a high AI like this Pentaband Krait King. This left only one possibility, that this boss had undergone some kind of mutation or evolution that had improved its intelligence.
Fatty shouted, gently waving the Elemental Sword. Ten meters away from him, a sharp sword tip suddenly appeared and stabbed towards the still working eye of the Pentaband Krait King.
Amidst the crisis, the creature turned its head. The sword tip swept slantwise from the corner of the eyes across more than half of the skull, slas.h.i.+ng out a long wound.
"Hissss!" The terrified Pentaband Krait King began to think of fleeing. That ghostly sword attack just now had nearly destroyed its remaining eye.
Hooo! The krait king puffed out a cloud of poison gas covering a radius of several dozen meters. Fatty hastily moved back to avoid it.
Since he set out to hunt snake-type monsters, Fatty had brought antidotes with him. However, in the face of a poison that could kill a high-rank Yao, he didn't think he could survive long enough to even use the antidote. Therefore, he was fast to dodge, giving the Pentaband Krait King a chance to escape.
After the poison cloud dispersed, Fatty was stunned to see that the boss had disappeared.
There was only a track on the ground that led towards a distant bush - the escape route of the Pentaband Krait King.
Pondering only a few seconds, Fatty summoned the Violent Ox King and quickly gave chase. He was determined to acquire the creature's gallbladder and inner core. Moreover, there must be some intriguing secret behind its high AI.
The Violent Ox King's speed was super fast as it spread all four hooves and rampaged forth. Some level 40 to 50 monsters who couldn't escape in time were crushed to death under those hooves. Very soon, Fatty spotted the Pentaband Krait King's limber figure.
Hsssss… The Pentaband Krait King slithered through bushes as if blessed by the wind. In less than ten minutes, it had already crossed several hills and entered the depths of the Demon Forest.
Dense vines were everywhere, along with trees as tall as a hundred meters and as thick as a circle of several dozen people spreading their arms. The tree leaves blotted out the sky, only allowing specks of light to reach the ground. The atmosphere was quiet and eerie.
Faintly, Fatty could sense the aura of countless powerful monsters. He hurriedly pocketed the Violent Ox King and used Stealth, then continued to follow the trail of the Pentaband Krait King.
Suddenly, Fatty saw a corner of eaves peeking out from the thick leaves. The eaves seemed to be black under all the dense ivy and moss, looking ancient and mottled as though it had weathered a long period of wind and rain.
"What is this?" Fatty suddenly felt uneasy. This eaves corner was over thirty meters off the ground, obviously the structure of a colossal building. Anyone who could construct such a huge building here in the depths of the Demon Forest certainly was no one simple.
"It's fine, this is definitely an ownerless building. The Imperial Dynasty absolutely won't allow any character who refuses to comply under their jurisdiction to appear in the Demon Forest," Fatty consoled himself.
As he crept forward in Stealth, the building hidden deep the trees gradually revealed itself before Fatty.
It was a huge temple, with an appearance similar to any other temple one would see in real life. Spanning over a hundred meters in length, the temple looked dignified and solemn with mottled marks all over the wall, a telling sign of how extraordinary it had been.
"Evil G.o.d Temple."
Above the entrance of the temple hung a plaque with three worn our, almost illegible characters imprinted on it.
"Evil G.o.d Temple? Doesn't sound like anything good." Fatty immediately made some guesses about the temple.
To appear in the middle of the Demon Forest with a name like this, it obviously had some connections with the Demon Realm. In the worst-case scenario, it lay outside of the Imperial Dynasty's jurisdiction, which put it in the terrorist category.
The gate of the grand entrance had already collapsed, the square beyond was overgrown with weeds. Empty for unknown years, the weeds had grown and withered, dried up then regrown. It was impossible to see any of the original appearance of the square anymore.
The Pentaband Krait King slithered along the corner of the gate and quickly disappeared into the shadows. Fatty hesitated a little before following it inside.
The inside of the Evil G.o.d Temple was pitch black and gloomy as if the sun had abandoned it. There was not a single trace of light to be seen within.
After just several steps, gloom, evil, terror… all sorts of negative feelings surged to Fatty's mind. For a moment, Fatty just wanted to log out of the game and throw off the helmet right away.
"Holy Light Illumines All." Fatty quickly used the Holy Horn. A gentle white light descended from above and enveloped him, chasing away all of the negative emotions in his head. At the same time, it allowed Fatty to see a part of the interior.
This seemed to be the front hall of the temple. Many broken pillars were lying around, except for only one which was still perfectly intact. This pillar had some pictures that depicted what seemed to be a record of an unknown deity's history.
As the light of Holy Light Illumines All dimmed down, the surroundings once again fell into darkness. Fatty didn't light a torch for fear it would attract monsters somewhere. He carefully made his way forward.
The rustling sound grew distant until it vanished. Obviously, the Pentaband Krait King had gone into some inner quarters. Fatty took out the Crystal Maze of Terror and tried its functions. Spy showed only pitch darkness on the mirror, but X-Ray actually displayed every detail of the area.

In the ten seconds of X-Ray, Fatty saw clearly the situation around him. Aside from the broken pillars in this front hall, there were also piles of dry bones and damaged weapons on their way of corroding into powder. Since there was nothing valuable here, Fatty needed to keep going further in.
