Chapter 1788: The Three Hegemonic Powers of the Mystic Region

Qin Wentian was somewhat speechless. Donghuang Ying still had the intention to praise his talent but she also told him not to compare himself with Yue Changkong. Evidently, she felt that Yue Changkong was superior despite the fact that Qin Wentian displayed a total of thirteen heavenheart mandates.
But in truth, Yue Changkong was indeed a character with supreme talent. His attainment in time laws was extremely deep or no matter how audacious he was, it was impossible for him to dare to stand out as a fake. If his talent wasn’t high enough, he would be easily exposed. Would the Time King choose a mediocre person as his inheritor?
During these days, Yue Changkong also did have the intention to display his talent. In the convention, under the gazes of so many world overlords, he was the most glorious one. No wonder Donghuang Ying would say such a thing.
“Little princess, I don’t have any intentions to make invidious comparisons with him, I’m merely speaking of facts. It’s naturally okay that you admire his talent. But if he wants to be closer with you, it’s a must to check his character and personality.” Qin Wentian reminded once more.
“Alright Brother Qin, I naturally know this. There might be other bouts of good fortune appearing for the duration of the convention. Brother Qin has to work harder.” Donghuang Ying laughed, intentionally shifting the topic. Evidently, she didn’t really place Qin Wentian’s words in her heart.
Since she intentionally didn’t want to talk about this, Qin Wentian naturally wouldn’t continue. He could only reply, “Mhm, let’s hope that there are more good fortune. Little princess, I’m going off to cultivate now, there’s no need to reply.”
After speaking, Qin Wentian kept his messaging crystal, bitterly smiling while shaking his head. He has already reminded her, if Donghuang Ying wanted to, she would have bear his words in mind. He had already said what he needed to say. He didn’t even tell Ten Miles Springwind and the others that he obtained the dao bone. Based on relationships, they were closer to him compared to Donghuang Ying. Naturally, this matter was a secret to him but in truth, this matter wasn’t that critical to them anyway. Hence, it wasn’t that he intentionally kept this a secret from them.
“Maybe I’m overthinking things.” Qin Wentian mumbled. Even if Donghuang Ying eventually ended up together with Yue Changkong, most probably given her status, Yue Changkong wouldn’t dare to do anything to her and would treat her well. In addition, Yue Changkong’s talent was also extraordinary, he can be considered a good candidate for Donghuang Ying’s marriage. Why was he worrying on behalf of her?
The three hegemonic powers of the Mystic Region are known as: Ziwei Divine Court, Great Devil Divine Palace, Heavenly Deity Mountain.
The Eastern Royal Immortal Realms was a vassal force subordinated to the Ziwei Divine Court. How can Donghuang Ying’s background not be strong?
It’s just that if Donghuang Ying was fantasizing that Yue Changkong would be the same as the Sword Monarch back then, challenging a heavenly deity from the Heavenly Deity Mountain, this should be highly impossible. That sort of glory can be classified as truly unparalleled in the world. But how many in the world can have that?
Qin Wentian didn’t think too much. He continued to be immersed in his cultivation. The disputes and excitement in the outside world had nothing to do with him.
This time, he came to participate in the convention because he wanted to broaden his horizons and take a look at the world overlords of the Mystic Region. And now, he was already extremely satisfied that he managed to meet Luoshen Lei and learned of his mother’s clan, also learning the information that his father’s clan was in the Heaven Region. He even saw the mysterious abilities of the Time King and went back in the past and received the heavenly deity dao bone of time. To him, this trip here was already very rewarding.
Right now, other than cultivation, he also did hope that he would be able to meet with his uncle who was currently rushing here quicker.
Naturally, the flow of time in the Time Realm was different from the external world. A few years might pass here but only a few days pass on the outside. There was truly no need for him to be anxious.
Today, the entire Time Realm suddenly trembled. Even Qin Wentian who was cultivating in his residential palace could feel the rumblings of heaven and earth. He opened his eyes which gleamed with sharpness before he walked out and stared into the distance.
He saw an incomparably majestic giant mountain descending from the sky, completely replacing the previous mountain.
This mountain was even taller and more imposing, as though it was impossible to climb up to its peak. The entire mountain shone with a pure and resplendent light, extremely dazzling.
“Heavenly Deity Mountain?” Within the time realm, many exclamations of shock rang out. This mountain resembled the Heavenly Deity Mountain. Those major characters all understood that this was a bout of good fortune sent by them. Everyone can enter the mountain to search for opportunities.
Just when the excitement of the world overlords was surging up, the entire space in the Time Realm started trembling once more as devil might radiated forth, it felt like an apocalypse was coming.
After that, a devil-path platform descended from the sky, floating in the air while radiating an unexcelled might. On this devil divine platform, a devil god throne could be seen there. On the throne, a supreme devil treasure in the form of a devil god armor could be seen and there was also a devil god spear beside the throne, exuding tyrannical might that could suppress the sky.
“The Devil Divine Battle Platform.” The hearts of everyone pounded. They knew the significance of it appearing.
The experts in the Great Devil Divine Palace are all fans of combat. They have always used combat prowess to prove themselves, reveling in bloody battles. Now that a giant devil platform descended in the time realm, everyone naturally should understand that the hegemonic powers wished for everyone who came here to attend the convention to fight on top of it. The treasures we see are reserved for the victors and they are definitely extremely terrifying. Sadly, the vast majority of people can only dream about it.
For treasures given by the Great Devil Divine Palace, even major characters would feel tempted to try for it. For ordinary world overlords, or even for transcendent-level world overlords, they most probably wouldn’t have any chance when they fight against supreme experts from the major powers. They might have a better opportunity if they went to search for good fortune in the Heavenly Deity Mountain.
The Heavenly Deity Mountain and Great Devil Divine Palace have both sent something out, causing the Time Realm to tremble. However, things weren’t concluded yet because the third hegemonic power of the Mystic Region has yet to act. They would always act in unison during the convention. Right now, the Ziwei Divine Court still had no movements.
Just when everyone thought about this, a resplendent beam of astral light suddenly shot down from the sky, born from the Ziwei Star.
In astrology, the Ziwei Star always represented the constellation for emperors. It was incomparably majestic.
At this moment, resplendent rays of emperor light filled the air. Cascading down on the Time Realm. A stretch of starry ocean actually appeared in the central location, spreading out into four smaller constellation seas. Each constellation sea then transformed into the shape of a human, they appeared to be illusory and extremely blurry.
In the next moment, the light from the four seas swept out and enveloped the entire Time Realm, shining on every expert. Next, the four illusory figures began to project the faces of the world overlords. With every moment, the illusory figures would flash and the face projected would change.
Many people saw this bizarre scene, could it be that the appearance of every world overlord here would be projected by the Constellation Ocean?”
But this wasn’t the truth. When the light swept past many people, nothing happened, their appearances weren’t projected at all. Only when the light swept passed those younger world overlords would the illusory figures formed from the constellation seas project their appearances.
Qin Wentian who was in his residential palace, naturally was also included in the scan. When the light fell on his body, one of the illusory figures projected his face. After that, he could sense the ziwei’s star constellation light summoning him towards the Constellation Ocean.
“What a mystical energy.” Qin Wentian mused.
Heavenly Deity Mountain, Devil Divine Battle Platform, Constellation Ocean. Behind these, are the three hegemonic powers of the Mystic Region – the Heavenly Deity Mountain, the Great Devil Divine Palace and the Ziwei Divine Court.
The convention of the myriad realms was the grandest event of the Mystic Region. How could the three hegemonic powers of the Mystic Region be missing from it?
They were why the convention could attract so many world overlords. Countless world overlords from the various locations of the Mystic Region would rush here once every ten thousand years to participate in it.
“Elder brother, I see you.” Luoshen Lei’s voice rang out in his mind.
“I’ve also seen your face flashing past by earlier in the Constellation Ocean.” Qin Wentian took out his messaging crystal and replied.
“Seems like for this convention, the Ziwei Divine Court wants to focus more on nurturing the world overlords from the younger generation. It’s clear who their targets are, they directly exclude those from the older generations. Also, since the ocean split into four seas resulting in four figures, they might want to select four younger world overlords out from the crowd today. The chosen four might have a chance to join the Ziwei Divine Court.
Luoshen Lei continued, “Brother, if you participate, I don’t think there’s a problem. You should be able to join the Ziwei Divine Court.”
“Joining the Ziwei Divine Court?” Qin Wentian mumbled. For some reason, he didn’t have any thoughts of joining a hegemonic power in the Mystic Region. Maybe it was because he had already obtained the undying inheritance of the Imperishable Heaven Lord, or maybe it was because he had no trust towards these hegemonic powers.
He would still respect those lofty powers at the peak but respect wasn’t the same as trust. To him, they were unfamiliar powers and he didn’t even understand them. Since there was no understanding, how could there be trust? Let alone he still had a debt of revenge he has yet to settle. In the future, he might come to blows with the heavenly deities of the Heaven Region.
“The Great Devil Divine Palace is as domineering and direct as ever. They sent down a battle platform, allowing those who wish to fight to fight all they want. They have already prepared the rewards, and are just waiting for the victor to claim them. This is how they always do things.” Luoshen Lei smiled. She then continued, “As for the Heavenly Deity Mountain, they prefer more ethereal things like getting people to hunt for their own good fortune. Their actions are somewhat vague. No wonder they are ranked last out of the three hegemonic powers in the Mystic Region. But even so, you still can go there to take a look at what is hidden on the mountain.”
“Lei`er, do you think I should join a heavenly deity-ranked power?” Qin Wentian suddenly asked.
Luoshen Lei suddenly fell silent. Qin Wentian’s situation was quite complicated. No one understood this more than her.
If the Luoshen Clan was of one heart and was united, things would be easy to settle. Qin Wentian can directly head to the Luoshen Clan. However, the Luoshen Clan was divided in their perspectives with regards to that matter which happened so many years ago. If Qin Wentian went to the Luoshen Clan, she didn’t know if it would be good or bad.
Also, Qin Wentian’s enemies were extremely strong. She was very clear that it was impossible for any of the three hegemonic powers in the Mystic Region to stand out for Qin Wentian to help him against his enemies.
Hence, Luoshen Lei didn’t know how to reply to this question. After being silent for a long time, she finally replied, “Elder brother, you should decide on your own. But no matter what, I will always stand by your side.”
“Mhm, good.” Qin Wentian smiled and nodded his head. Although he didn’t inquire about the internal situation of the Luoshen Clan, Qin Wentian could guess a little. Naturally, things would only become clearer after he met with his uncle!
But for now, for this convention, should he display his brilliance?
