Chapter 1005: 《Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles》
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Xue Ying was currently reading through all types of books within the Book Repository Pavilion. He continued reading for half a month before stopping.
During this half a month, Xue Ying read many books that recorded clues to the ancient remnants like “Relics of the Ancient Remnants”, “Scarlet Bull Palace Hidden Treasures” and many others. Xue Ying could interpret that most were useless, and what was recorded were already known by everyone. During the two terrifying Wars of the Ancient Nations, many cultivators fell. Even Cosmos Gods died in batches. ‘Scarlet Bull Palace Master’ was one of the few famous Cosmos Gods that killed more than a dozen Cosmos Gods. Xue Ying could deduce that this cultivator should be of a similar realm with Sacred Master.
This gave Xue Ying a new understanding. In the Realm Heart Great Land, quite a few at the level of Sacred Master had fallen in history.
There were even more who were still alive!
‘Such a terrifying place.’ Xue Ying muttered inwardly.
Even though both places were origin worlds, the Realm Heart Great Land had a much deeper foundation. No wonder ‘Yuan’ left behind an opportunity for descendants to enter this origin world.
‘There should be quite a few like me who reincarnated into this Realm Heart Great Land.’ Xue Ying sighed.
‘And it seems the smaller nations aren’t safe at all.’ Xue Ying discovered how dangerous this place was.
The Southern Cloud Nation was located south of ‘Summer Wind Ancient Nation’. In the region south of this ancient nation all the way until the ‘Black Prison Yin Sea’, there were a total of four nations and a huge lake.
This huge lake was a famous perilous area in the entire Realm Heart Great Land. The space here was deranged. One might travel a few trillion kilometers with a single step. Hence, this was a place where the majority of devils hid in! Many devils who escaped from the Summer Wind Ancient Nation, as well as other areas, had gathered in this location.
Hence, this was also called the ‘Black Devil Great Lake’, and the four nations surrounding it were called the Black Devil Four Nations.
The Black Devil Great Lake spanned over a considerable area not any smaller than a nation. There were countless devils and close to ten Cosmos Gods at this place. It was one of the few famous gathering locations of devils, and it was hard for the six ancient nations to eradicate them.
Like the Southern Cloud Nation, there was the Southern Cloud King. Quite a few famous devils were also located in the Black Devil Great Lake.
The ‘Fiery Zhao Nation’ which was one of the Black Devil Four Nations might have three Cosmos Gods, yet none of them could compare to how intimidating the Southern Cloud King was. The Fiery Zhao Nation had practically become a back garden for the Black Devil Great Lake, and devils frequently acted rampantly there. It was common for cities to be overwhelmed, and the Fiery Zhao King could only endure… because the previous Fiery Zhao King had died precisely in the hands of the devils from the Black Devil Great Lake.
Even though the Southern Cloud Nation was in a much better situation, it was still a place where devils from the Black Devil Great Lake frequented for slaughtering, though Cosmos Gods would not easily act there.
‘Danger lurks in all places.’ Xue Ying softly shook his head.
Nations relied on strength to stand firm.
For instance, ‘Snow Hook Nation’ which was also one of the Black Devil Four Nations had a total of five Cosmos Gods and had extremely powerful experts. The Snow Hook King was someone known to be crazy and was not willing to be deferential towards the ancient nations. He had fought with three great ancient nations before! Even though many died and were injured in his own nation, the Snow Hook King was quite capable of surviving and was able to remain alive even now.
‘Truly competent. He fought with three great ancient nations before, yet this tier two Snow Hook Nation stands firm until now.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly in admiration.
Both Southern Cloud King and Snow Hook King were absolutely overlords.
Nevertheless, Southern Cloud King had a warmer personality. He befriended quite a few other states and spread his own absolute art. He had many disciples within the six great ancient nations. Hence, the Southern Cloud Nation was comparatively the most stable nation.
Xue Ying placed down the book in his hand. He made his resolution in his heart: ‘According to the books that I read these few days, the most appropriate absolute art for me is the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”.’
The Southern Cloud Sacred Religion was one of the ten great religions in the Realm Heart Great Land.
One had to know that there existed quite a few Cosmos Gods on the same level with the Sacred Master, yet the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion was able to be ranked in the top ten. It was naturally amazing.
The primary reason why the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion was so famous was due to the absolute art created by Southern Cloud King–the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”. This absolute art was so well-known across the world that practically almost all experts who reached a certain standard in the Realm Heart Great Land would know of it. And in the Southern Cloud Nation, there was virtually nobody who did not know of this art.
‘The bloodline I activated belongs to the void. My experience with the void is considered to be deep too.’ Xue Ying chuckled, ‘This “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” is precisely a void-related absolute art.’
Time and space. That was something that any cultivator would be able to perceive when they started cultivating. As long as a cultivator reached the True God realm, they could control time and space to a certain extent. Hence, it was quite easy for most True Gods in the Realm Heart Great Land to grasp a void-related absolute art, and the stronger they got, the deeper their control of it.
That was why the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” was well known for its great innate potential for cultivators to train in.
Naturally, there were many other void-related absolute arts too. But for this absolute art to become so famous was due to its relative ease of cultivation.
By the lake, Marquis Ardent Fire was currently fishing.
Xue Ying rode on the Black Stream Cloud Wolf arriving where Marquis Ardent Fire was. Elder Tian and the other personal protectors stood afar watching Xue Ying as he leaped down and shouted: “Grandpa Marquis, I have read quite a few books in the Book Repository Pavilion, and have decided what I want to cultivate.”
“Oh? What are you planning to cultivate?” the red-haired male Marquis Ardent Fire looked at Xue Ying with a smile.
“The “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”!” Xue Ying did not hesitate.
“This is the absolute art most famous in my Southern Cloud Nation and is also created personally by the king. It is most apt for those with talent in the void aspect.” Marquis Ardent Fire looked at Xue Ying.
The surface of Xue Ying’s body suddenly fluctuated with the void. Many void ripples appeared.
Marquis Ardent Fire’s eyes sparkled the moment he saw that: “Ha, the bloodline you activated is related to the void! Then it is fine for you to cultivate it. Honestly speaking, there are quite a few cultivators in my Southern Cloud Nation that cultivates the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”, though it is quite hard to reach a profound realm in it. You have the potential to cultivate in the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”, and it is quite fortunate that my Marquisdom has quite a few cultivators training in this art.”
Xue Ying naturally knew of it.
He was a citizen of the Southern Cloud Nation and was also someone who activated a void bloodline. Furthermore, Xue Ying had great prior experience in the void. All these reasons were factored into his decision of choosing this absolute art! Even though cultivating this absolute art was relatively easy, it was only comparative. The path of cultivation was ultimately a bumpy road. The difficulty of reaching the eighth level at Unity realm should be as difficult as reaching the seventh level of Unity realm in the primal chaos realm where he came from. Nevertheless, Xue Ying did not mind. Even if he walked down the path of the laws and profound mysteries system, he was confident of creating a ninth level move.
“Do you want to go and learn it now?” Marquis Ardent Fire asked.
“Definitely!” Xue Ying responded.
“Alright. Go, I’ll bring you to the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace.” Marquis Ardent Fire said.
Marquis Ardent Fire turned to Elder Tian and the others, giving out an order: “You all should return to the residence of Xue Ying first. I’ll send him over in a while.”
“Yes, Grandpa Marquis.” They acknowledged.
“Let us set off.”
Marquis Ardent Fire brought Xue Ying along.
A red-haired male bringing a young fellow directly proceeding through the void. They arrived soon at the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace within the Ardent Fire City.
The Southern Cloud Sacred Palace existed even within some cities in the six great ancient nations. They received cultivators from all over the place. Nevertheless, to cultivate this absolute art to the most profound stage, most had to pay the Southern Cloud Nation a visit.
And within ‘Southern Cloud Nation’, other than guiding disciples within the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace, they also took in powerful cultivators, forming some unique organizations. Those who joined the sacred palace would become subordinates of the king, and they would acquire various benefits too.
And the master of the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace inside the Ardent Fire City was also one of the two giants, ‘Chun Yu Wei Yi’.
A red-haired male and a little fellow stood by the entrance of the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace.
“Grandpa Marquis came personally?” A tall and thin male equipped with gray armor walked over. As he traveled, his entire person felt akin to a blade cutting through the void. Everywhere he moved left behind ripples by the sides of the void. His vision landed on Xue Ying as he chuckled, “This should be Little Prince Ying Shan Xue Ying right? He is quite talented. After all, he was a Void God at birth. In any case, Grandpa Marquis, why did you bring him over to my place?”
“Xue Ying has decided to join the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.” Marquis Ardent Fire chuckled.
“Good good good. Come over and tell me more.” Chun Yu excitedly brought both of them in.
