Chapter 1790: Zhang Tie’s Intention
Translator: WQL Editor: Aleem
The Dragon Teeth Army was composed of over 1,500 immortal generals. As the most powerful force of Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace, Dragon Teeth Army was responsible for the safety of Forbidden City, Dragon Emperor City and Cloudriver Valley.
All the immortal generals of Dragon Teeth Army had already heard about Dragon Emperor Medicament which had shocked the entire Dragon Emperor City these days. After knowing that Zhang Tie took 50,000 vials of Dragon Emperor Medicament to cheer up the troops, the morale of Dragon Teeth Army rose at a stroke as they all performed the large battle formation at their full efforts.
With the hot sun above their heads, Zhang Tie, elders and presidents of Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace were watching the drill of the large battle formation of Dragon Teeth Army on a viewing platform at the hillside near the camp of Dragon Teeth Army keenly.
Zhang Tie had seen large battle formations of knights for many times in Taixia Country. However, the large battle formations of knights in Motian Realm were utterly different than that in Taixia Country. The big battle formation of over 1,000 immortal generals was really earth-shaking. The moment the large battle formation was triggered, it became dark within dozens of miles at once. The power of the entire large battle formation could match the large battle formation of 10,000 knights in Taixia Country. Additionally, this battle formation of over 1,000 immortal generals was more variable and unified.
In Taixia Country, there weren’t any sage-level knights in the large battle formation, over 1,000 average knights could never defeat a sage-level knight. However, in Motian Realm, according to Zhang Tie’s judgment, if a sage-level knight really fell in this large battle formation, he might be killed.
Of course, the premise was that the sage-level knight really entered the big battle formation. Otherwise, given the speed and battle strength of sage-level knight, unless he fell into a trap, he could barely encounter such a dilemma.
The real functions of the big battle formation of over 1,000 immortal generals were as follows: defense, deterrence, two armies pitting against each other and ambush. All in all, rare sage-level knights could be ambushed and killed by a big battle formation of over 1,000 immortal generals; especially after Rune Emperor’s death, no more supreme-level immortal general was killed by a big battle formation in Motian Realm anymore.
Of course, it was formation beads being exclusive to Motian Realm which could enable a big battle formation of over 1,000 immortal generals to release 10 more times power.
Formation bead was a kind of immortal outfit in Motian Realm, also a secret item in Taixia Country. In Motian Realm, immortal outfits were divided into heavenly-level immortal outfits, earth-level immortal outfits and human-level immortal outfits. Each level was further divided into preliminary, medium, advanced and perfect. Such a division was much more detailed than that in Taixia Country.
At this moment, the Dragon Teeth Army was performing Four-Image Heavenly Battle Formation. This battle formation required 1,200 formation beads, each formation bead for an immortal general. This set of formation beads of Four-Image Heavenly Battle Formation was the set of the most advanced immortal outfit that was collected in Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace. It was of preliminary rank on a heavenly level. Over the past hundreds of years when the Dragon Emperor disappeared, this set of formation beads became one of the most precious rarities in Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace.
When they performed the Four-Image Heavenly Battle Formation, 1,200 immortal generals integrated with their battle qi and spiritual energy. With the effect of formation beads, the entire battle formation formed a bizarre space which was similar to the virtual image of a knight. The so-called four images became constellations in east, south, west and north respectively. Immortal generals couldn’t be seen in the large battle formation anymore; instead, people could only see the virtual images of the large battle formation.
As four constellations sparkled, various attacks launched out of the four constellations which rocked heaven and earth within that territory.
After drilling for half an hour, the large battle formation gradually surrounded the viewing platform where Zhang Tie, the elders and presidents of Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace were. However, nobody found anything wrong except for Zhang Tie. They were all enjoying it pretty much.
At this moment, there were totally 13 people on the viewing platform, including Zhang Tie. Hong Yukun was not qualified to be here. Huang Baimei became the center of the large battle formation as he was commanding the large battle formation, being invisible.
Just now, when they were watching the drill, Zhang Tie kept silence. After finding that all the others were trapped, Zhang Tie finally revealed his intention.
“How do you feel about Four-Image Heavenly Large Battle Formation?” Zhang Tie turned around as he watched the others with a smile.
“With the protection of this large battle formation, Dragon Emperor City will have no worries!”
“It’s indeed powerful!”
“I’m afraid that this large battle formation could defeat any power below the immortal emperor!”
Elders started to acclaim it in unison as they were all very satisfied with the drill of Four-Image Heavenly Large Battle Formation.
“Pitifully, there are not enough immortal weapons in Earth-Treasures Department anymore. Otherwise, if each immortal general of this large battle formation were matched with one more immortal outfit, the power of this large battle formation could increase by two more times!” Wang Laisheng sighed pitifully as he stroked his beard.
“Only a few immortal weapons are left in Earth-Treasures Department!” Luo Yunshang interrupted in fear that Zhang Tie would misunderstand her. “There were hundreds of immortal weapons in the Earth-Treasures Department previously. Over the past hundreds of years, most of them had been rewarded to immortal generals who made meritorious deeds. Every immortal outfits’ whereabouts were recorded. You know that it’s a taboo for us to not reward someone with meritorious deeds. Because of the constant incentive of the hundreds of immortal weapons, Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace could maintain a bit of grace until the return of Your Majesty. Over so many years, almost all the immortal outfits in Earth-Treasures Department have been rewarded except for some sets of formation beads which have been allocated to Dragon Teeth Army. Even though Your Majesty asked me whether there were some heavy immortal weapons in Earth-Treasures Department, I could only tell you no…”
Luo Yunshang didn’t lie. When Zhang Tie ascended to the throne of Dragon Emperor, he intended to find a super heavy secret weapon from the arsenal of Earth-Treasures Department. However, the number of immortal weapons in Earth-Treasures Department was fewer than that he could imagine. After knowing that, Zhang Tie abandoned this idea.
Zhang Tie waved his hand as he said, “Let the bygones be bygones. After we start to auction Dragon Emperor Medicament, we will exchange some Dragon Emperor Medicament for immortal outfits annually. The warehouse of Earth-Treasures Department will also gradually become substantial in contents. I think Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace will be better and better in the future!”
“It’s all because of you, Your Majesty!”
“Not completely. I have to appreciate you for that as well!” Zhang Tie said while heaving a deep sigh, “Although Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace has a bright future, there’s a problem facing us that we have to solve as soon as possible. Otherwise, Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace might perish overnight…”
“Ah? No way!” All the elders and presidents goggled as they thought Zhang Tie was joking.
“Do you know Dark Emperor Immortal Palace?”
“Yes, we know!” All of them nodded.
With a frown, Elder Shi asked, “Is there any relationship between Dark Emperor Immortal Palace and Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace?”
“The envoy of Star Emperor Immortal Palace came to the Forbidden City yesterday. Through communication with him, I knew that Dark Emperor Immortal Palace was far more complex than we could imagine. Dark Emperor Immortal Palace might have been lurking in Motian Realm for too many years. With great ambitions, they had already controlled many clans. Even Heavenly Sunshine Immortal Palace has been penetrated through. They even dared arrange moles in Star Emperor Immortal Palace and Force Emperor Immortal Palace. The envoy of Star Emperor Immortal Palace told me that Star Emperor and Force Emperor were both worried that some immortals of their immortal palaces were already under the control of Dark Emperor Immortal Palace. Star Emperor even especially asked his envoy to warn me that some immortal generals in Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace might have already been controlled by Dark Emperor Immortal Palace. On this occasion, how could I stay calm as the head of Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace?” Zhang Tie glanced over all the others as he continued, “Before the old man came back, you were crystal clear about the situation facing Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace. If Dark Emperor Immortal Palace dared do that to Star Emperor Immortal Palace and Force Emperor Immortal Palace, how could they let Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace go?”
After hearing Zhang Tie’s words, all the elders and presidents exchanged a glance with each other as they all looked pretty solemn. At the same time, the fervent atmosphere on the viewing platform slowly turned cold.
“Your Majesty, what about your plan?” Long Jiutian asked Zhang Tie in a muffled voice, “Your Majesty, as long as you need us, we would definitely support you!”
“Of course I want to find the moles of Dark Emperor Immortal Palace in Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace as soon as possible!” Zhang Tie replied with a smile, “I know the situation facing Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace in the past. Excellent birds would rest on fine trees. Humans struggle upwards; water flows downwards. At that time, Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace had a poor prospect. Some of you might choose to rely on Dark Emperor Immortal Palace for the sake of your prospect. I understand that. Just let the bygones be bygones. I didn’t want to look into it. Now, Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace is becoming better and better. I want to spare a chance for those who have relied on Dark Emperor Immortal Palace. As long as you could stand out and admit that you’ve joined Dark Emperor Immortal Palace, you could leave here safely. I could allow you to exit Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace and leave Dragon Emperor Big Domain safely. From then on, as for whether you’re going to be our foes or friends, it depends on you!”
“I’ve got a question. As all the immortal generals of Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace have already made a bloody pledge, how could they betray immortal palace without being destroyed by the bloody pledge?” Hou Moyuan asked.
“According to the envoy of Star Emperor Immortal Palace, Dark Emperor Immortal Palace might have already mastered a solution to invalidate the bloody pledge. Additionally, Golden-Soul Rune Virus of Dark Emperor Immortal Palace could indeed enable immortal generals to be their puppets…” Zhang Tie said as he took a calm look at the others, “How do you feel about my method?”
“Your Majesty, you’re really merciful!”
“But I’m afraid that the moles of Dark Emperor Immortal Palace could barely admit their real identities!”
“But we could have a try. If there’re really moles of Dark Emperor Immortal Palace in Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace, this method might not lead to a big turmoil…”
“How could we let these traitors go? I think we should kill them…”
The elders and presidents started to air their views.
Zhang Tie then fixated onto Xia Yangming with a smile as he asked, “Elder Xia, how do you feel about it?”
“As I was in charge of the Supervision Department, I didn’t imagine that any alien force could penetrate into Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace. Please forgive me for my carelessness, Your Majesty!” Xia Yangming said shamefully, “Now that Dark Emperor Immortal Palace is already exposed to the public, I feel that we might have a try. If we could solve this problem in this way without arousing the turmoil in Dragon Emperor Immortal Palace, then why not!”
“Elder Xia, you’ve agreed with me?”
“That’s great!” Zhang Tie instantly turned solemn as he glanced over all the others at present. Finally, he fixated onto Xia Yangming and Shi Zhongyu as his eyes turned sharp at once, “Now that Elder Xia has already agreed, when will you leave Dragon Emperor Big Domain, Elder Xia, Elder Shi?”
After hearing Zhang Tie’s words, the air above the viewing platform became frozen at once as everyone else was shocked…
