Hogwarts, a Scholar Becomes a God - Vol 5 Chapter 4
“Although wizards from all over the world often came to visit the magical ruins of ancient Egypt in the past, the rooms in our hotel are usually 60% full.
After all, this is the hottest period of time, and it is not suitable for traveling.
But there are a lot of guests coming to our hotel this summer. If you didn’t book your room in advance, hehe, I’m afraid you can only go out and turn left and go to the shabby hotel run by a local wizard.
I’m not blowing, you can’t find a better accommodation in Cairo than our Helios Hotel.
Those scruffy Egyptian wizards…”
The goblin Qiris was chattering, and he didn’t stop at his feet, and quickly brought them to the door of the room.
“Please come in.”
He opened the door with the key, and as soon as he entered, everyone knew why Bill only opened two rooms.
This room turned out to be a huge suite, not only three bedrooms and one living room, but also a kitchen and a long balcony with a view of the Nile.
Large swathes of sunlight poured into the interior from the balcony, but it did not bring a scorching feeling.
A slight cool breeze swirled in the living room, making everyone breathe a sigh of relief.
“There must be some magic that can adjust the temperature!” Ron swore to Clark.
“Dear guest, the other room is next to you.”
Ziris took out the key to the room, counted the number of people, and pointed his long, slender finger on the key.
Then, I saw that the two keys were like hens laying eggs, and several keys of the same shape were split.
The goblin handed the key to Bill, turned around and prepared to leave.
But at this time, Ginny, who had just worked as a part-time reporter for a few days last semester, suffered an occupational disease and hurriedly asked the goblin.
“But why? Why are there more wizards coming to Egypt???”??
Facing Ginny’s question, the fairy Chiris did not answer directly.
“Miss, there are a lot of guests in the hotel now. If you don’t have anything important, do I still need to be busy here?”
Ginny slumped on the other party’s body, and it was not good to continue to stop the other party to ask questions.
However, Clark guessed it when he looked at the sly face of the goblin Ziris and the big eyes staring at him.
The other party said that in front of them just now. It’s just one aspect that he likes to talk a lot, and he is more fishing.
Although the names are different, the images of these fairies, in Clark’s memory, are eight or nine points similar to those of the goblins in Faerûn.
In Faerûn, these guys are greedy and smart creatures.
They have excellent minds in business and mechanics, and some gifted goblins can even master the ability to use high-level arcane magic.
In ancient times, they even created an amazing steam alchemy civilization under the guidance of the God of Goblin.
It’s just that the shortcomings of these goblins are also very prominent. They are profit-seeking, and they get into the eyes of money like Grandet.
Even with great power, they are often more keen to use this ability to protect their wealth.
So as long as they are willing to pay, they will serve anyone, and they will not hesitate to even stab their own people in the back.
Fortunately, even though they are not plucked, oil is squeezed out of the cracks of the stones, but most of the goblins are still very trustworthy.
And it should be noted that Goblins are also one of the few races that is not disturbed by the basic surname “Charm”.
And they are highly resistant to psychic spells, especially when money is involved.
Legend has it that even a mind flayer cannot make a goblin hand over his wealth willingly.
So the only thing that can affect their senses and favorability is one thing, and that is money.
“Time is money, Mr. Ziris, I always think so, so to thank you for your service just now, I decided to give you a tip.”
Although as a European and American person, it is reasonable to say that tipping waiters is a tradition, but it is different here in wizards.
To them, Muggles are inferior to wizards, not to mention goblins who are not even human?
So for those wizards, they rarely have the habit of tipping goblins or house-elves.
And when the Ziris heard the word “tip”, his long pointed ears flashed twice.
Clark could even clearly see that the fluff on the goblin waiter’s ears stood up one by one.
Sure enough, although the world is different and the names are different, the race of fairies is no different from goblins.
“Yes, this is a recognition of your dedicated service.”
Clark handed him a silver siko, then stretched out his right hand with two silver siko in the palm of his hand.
“At the same time, I apologize for your inability to serve other guests. Do you accept it?”
Clark’s meaning is self-evident, and the effect is immediate.
Ziris immediately took the two silver sikos from Clark’s hand with a smile on his face, so fast that even Neville couldn’t react.
“Actually, I also vaguely heard from the guests who stayed there. They said that there may be new ancient ruins in the desert. What’s the name… Hamna Tower, yes, it seems to be the name!”
“Hamna Tower! What is that place? Why are those wizards going in there, what are they looking for?”
Ron asked curiously, but the goblin Ziris just shook his head.
“I don’t know that.
In the long history of more than 5,000 years, there are countless ancient ruins buried under the yellow sand of Egypt. I am just a waiter, how can I know this.
As for what are they looking for?
It is probably a risk to see if there is any gain, which is a very normal phenomenon in the Egyptian magic circle. ”
Seeing Clark’s two silver sikko’s sake, Ziris said a few more words.
“Every time there is a new relic, or some kind of rumor appears, it always attracts a large number of people to come here. They are typical speculators and outlaws who only seek profit.”
Ginny and Ron were disappointed, and Mrs Weasley reminded them.
“We came to Egypt to travel, but what kind of adventure game are we here to play? You all have to follow us obediently this month, and don’t run around, do you hear?”
Bill nodded too, agreeing with his mother.
“Yes, there are not many wizards who come to Egypt every year to carry out so-called treasure hunts, but only a handful of them can really find the ruins, break the curse, and bring out the treasures.
Even Gringotts spell-breakers like us need to be very careful when exploring those magical ruins, so this is no joke.
I think you should have a good rest, have a big dinner in the evening, and I will take you for a walk in Cairo tomorrow. ”
Hearing his words, Ron and others, who were still eager to try, were disappointed.
However, Clark, Hermione and Neville looked at each other vaguely, and this scene was only seen by the twin brothers George and Fred.
At this point in the residence, they began to allocate rooms.
As the only two girls in the team, Hermione, of course, lived in a room with Ginny.
They lived in the same suite as the Weasleys and Clark and Neville,
George and Fred, Ron and Percy, and Bill, lived in another suite.
After assigning the room, Clark opened his magic suitcase and asked them to take out their luggage.
After such a tossing, after all the arrangements were made, the exhaustion of the journey on everyone broke out completely.
They didn’t talk about what happened just now, they all went back to their rooms, ready to take a good rest.
However, when everyone was silent, Hermione suddenly opened the door of her own room, and then sneaked into the room of Clark and Neville next door.
She closed the door carefully, and when she turned her head, she saw that Clark and Neville had not rested either.
The two sat cross-legged on the bed with their eyes closed, as if they were meditating.
The other, holding a dagger that radiated cold light, carefully wiped the blade with deerskin, and evenly smeared it with sword oil.
Hermione just glanced at it and recognized that the short sword was the one Clark used to kill trolls in his first year.
Hearing the door closing, both Clark and Neville looked over.
“Well,” Hermione greeted the two of them, then looked at Clark, “you know Hamnata.”
She was affirming, and Clark nodded as she expected.
After all, he was very impressed with the movie called “The Mummy” (also known as “Legend of Gods and Ghosts / Tomb Raiders”).
“Yes, I did see it in the book collection at home.
Hamna Tower, the legendary capital of the dead, the **** of death Osiris on earth.
It is the tomb of the pharaohs of all ages, and many powerful curses have been placed by countless priests to prevent ordinary people from finding it.
Of course, since it is the tomb of the pharaohs of all dynasties, it naturally means that there are valuable funeral objects there, various gold, jewelry, magic props, alchemy potions, and even books that record precious knowledge. ”
“So that’s where we came to Egypt?” Hermione asked.
Clark shook his head, however, “I don’t know either.”
Clark reluctantly glanced at the two of them.
“The reason why I chose to come to Egypt is because I sensed some kind of peculiar fluctuation when I resurrected Tom Riddle under the name of [God of Wisdom, Knowledge and Magic].
And according to Tom Riddle’s analysis, there is also the direction of the fluctuations, and the one most likely to produce this kind of change is Thoth, the **** of wisdom in ancient Egyptian mythology. ”
“Hamnatar is the earthly kingdom of the **** of the underworld, Osiris, and has nothing to do with Thoth, the **** of wisdom. It seems that this should be just a coincidence.” Hermione analyzed rationally.
Clark, however, had a different view.
If it is just the place name Hamnatha, he is not necessarily sure that it has something to do with the plot of the first movie “The Mummy”.
After all, in the movie, the story takes place between the First World War and the Second World War.
However, when he saw Lara Crawford in “Tomb Raider” at the airport, combined with the “Cuira Deville” in “Cuira” he met in France last summer vacation, and he himself The wizard in the Harry Potter series.
He can almost conclude that this world is not just an ordinary “Harry Potter” world, maybe it is a mixed world with various other movies.
It’s just that the main body of this world is still dominated by “Harry Potter”. After all, in the extraordinary world of the earth today, wizards still occupy an absolute dominant position.
And if that Hamna Tower is really the capital of the dead in “The Mummy 1”, then it means that the “Golden Book of the Sun” and “Black Book of the Necromancer” in the movie really exist.
When Clark was in first grade, he had told Harry that it was possible for the dead to be resurrected, but he didn’t expect to encounter a feasible method now.
According to the plot in the movie, the “Black Book of the Necromancer” records various evil black magic, and can communicate with the **** of death Anubis, summon the dead undead to return, and resurrect them.
The “Golden Sutra of the Sun” is also a scripture of the ancient Egyptian sun **** Ra. It is said that it records the secrets and magical spells of the Egyptian gods. It is said that it even has the power to resurrect the dead, and is the supreme treasure passed down by the ancient Egyptian high priests from generation to generation.
Therefore, whether it is to better let Harry walk on a suitable “road” in the future, or to acquire knowledge related to the gods of ancient Egypt, it is necessary for him to participate in the plot of “The Mummy”.
“Anything involving gods is peculiar and mysterious.” Clark said under the gaze of the two.
“When the elf mentioned Hamnatha, there was an indescribable feeling in my heart.
Besides, don’t you find it strange?
It is a coincidence that such important information concerning wealth and power was known to us on the first day we arrived in Cairo. ”
Clark’s question is somewhat reasonable. The two of Hermione hadn’t reacted to it before~www.mtlnovel.com~ After he reminded them, the two of them felt that something was wrong.
“So I believe that this is the fate that guides us in the dark, and even the existence of Hamnatha, it is precisely because I borrowed the name of [God of Wisdom, Knowledge and Magic] to hold a ceremony not long ago. .”
“So we need to find the so-called ‘city of the dead’.”
Neville’s words are simple and clear, anyway, in his opinion, whoever Clark is going to chop, he can just swing his sword directly.
“But we don’t know where that Hamna Tower is. Is there a record in that book in Clark’s house?” Hermione asked.
Clark naturally does not know, after all, no detailed geographic coordinates are given in the movie.
Of course, he wouldn’t tell Hermione and the others.
“It’s not written in the book in our family, but now that this incident has provoked so many wizards, I think there will always be clues.”
Speaking of Clark here, for some reason, the “big sister” with a ponytail came to mind again.
