Chapter 1032: The Blood Sacrifice of Black Devil Great Lake
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
With a soul at the Primal Chaos Realm, Xue Ying’s speed of cultivation surged. After calming himself, he began researching on this newly-acquired Scarlet Cloud God Spear. The Scarlet Cloud God Spear was the weapon Scarlet Cloud Paragon Master used at his peak. It did not lack in power. This completed god spear was valued at a price not any lower than the ‘Cloud Sky Hammer’. Furthermore, as the Cloud Sky Hammer was given up by ‘Paragon Matron Slave’ personally as she customized a better weapon for herself, the price of the spear would hence be slightly higher than the hammer.
Regardless, this was a weapon that a Cosmos God had to sell all his treasures before he could afford it. Xue Ying lucked out this time. Naturally, it was by relying on his realm that he could obtain the spear body in a small area like the Ardent Fire City.
By relying on the spear body, he then discovered the spearhead in the capital. The spearhead was even bought by Old Mother Ying Shan.
That was how the whole spear landed in his hands.
The history of the Realm Heart Great Land was far too long. Many ancient remnants existed around the origin world. There had been plenty of experts who died during the first and second War of the Ancient Nations, so much so that the number could frighten the world. Hence, top-graded treasures were lost everywhere, and some depended on the cultivator’s luck to obtain while others depended on his judgment.
Xue Ying was doing his best to practice the spear in the Void God Pagoda. He would occasionally meditate and consolidate his comprehensions.
As time passed, Xue Ying became even more astonished by the spear.
‘I am so wrong. I originally thought that the mystical inscriptions within the Scarlet Cloud God Spear could allow me to deduce two great techniques–one a domain and the other an offensive killing move. Actually, that conclusion was obtained during my preliminary findings under the condition that both parts of the spear had not been fused together. Now that I began studying the spear thoroughly… it isn’t just two techniques!’ Xue Ying felt excited.
In reality, being a weapon that Scarlet Cloud Paragon Master used for battle, it naturally would be imbued with all techniques the owner specialized in aiding the owner.
One could say that the majority of Scarlet Cloud Paragon Master’s techniques was incorporated in this weapon.
But a weapon was different from an absolute art. It was refined for the sake of fighting, and not for imparting them to disciples. Hence, learning it was much harder than learning an absolute art.
‘Haha, truly a great opportunity for me!’ Xue Ying
Even the complete Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles only had primarily two combat techniques.
Nevertheless, Xue Ying discovered three types in this Scarlet Cloud God Spear.
Clearly, the <Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles> was what the Southern Cloud King prepared to impart to others. All inner disciples could learn it. Even the simplified version was spread across the entire Realm Heart Great Land. It was possible to get it just by spending a little cosmos crystals. As for the complete version, it was possible to get it without joining the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion as long as one was willing to spend a large sum.
Such kind of open impartation was something the Southern Cloud King naturally would not put all his techniques into.
For instance, the <Avatar Technique>, the <Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique> or the <Third Realm Technique>, which of these were not more precious than the Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles?
Hence, in other words–
The <Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles> was merely imparted to the public, and this version contained two powerful techniques. Adding up the refining technique–’Southern Cloud Sacred Body’–there were three methods.
As for the Scarlet Cloud God Spear, it encompassed more than half the combat techniques of Scarlet Cloud Paragon Master. One could see the gap between the two just by thinking along this line of thought.
As Xue Ying cultivated madly, time passed mercilessly.
He had indeed become entirely engrossed. Back at his hometown, Xue Ying could create two great ninth level moves and had long reached the bottleneck. It was hard for him to get any results despite 100 billion years of mundane cultivation. But now, not just the <Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles> or the Scarlet Cloud God Spear, or even the many absolute art scriptures which he got from the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion enabled Xue Ying to continually improve.
This feeling of improvement made him obsessed with cultivation.
The more he cultivated, the more Xue Ying felt how deep the foundation of the Realm Heart Great Land was. In the Primal Chaos Void, Xue Ying had already reached the number one rank in terms of his control of the Mirage and illusory realm; Xue Ying could not learn from other people. Instead, he had to probe his way in darkness. Nevertheless, there were two scriptures within the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion on the Mirage and illusory realm paving the way to the Cosmos God realm. There were even 16 other books that aided him in his research.
Xue Ying told the outside world that he would be in closed-door cultivation for a very long time.
In reality, this period had exceeded the expectations of Marquis Ardent Fire, Ying Shan Lie Hu, Rong Xing Lan, and others. To other ancient and old cultivators, this period of closed-door cultivation was not considered much. Nevertheless, to a young cultivator who had merely cultivated for five million years, it was honestly too long.
In the blink of an eye, 1.5 billion years had passed.
Black Devil Great Lake.
The lake was vast, and it wasn’t any smaller than a nation. This location was even filled with many devils. In terms of strength, the Black Devil Great Lake was stronger than any of the Black Devil Four Nations. Even the six great ancient nations had a hard time eliminating them. This place was also known as the best place for devils to gather across the entire Realm Heart Great Land.
At this moment, deep within the Black Devil Great Lake, in an extravagant palace.
A morbid-looking pale green-robed male sat on top of the throne. Surrounding the throne were meandering blood illusory figures. These figures had practically occupied close to half the entire hall. They were emitting an aura that felt abnormally horrifying, causing the surrounding time-space to tremble.
On the sides below the throne seated two figures.
One was a huge magma giant that a pair of burning fiery sphere eyes. Each of his eyes was like a blazing star.
And on the other side, there was a thin green-haired old man. This thin green-haired old man had a smile on the edge of his lips. There was also a tiny black snake wrapped around his body.
“According to the rules, the location of blood sacrifice this time should be the Southern Cloud Nation.” That green-robed male seated at the head position said with a cold voice.
“It isn’t fun to provoke the Southern Cloud King.” The magma giant’s voice rumbled.
“Hmph. So what if it isn’t fun to provoke him? The Blood Sacrifice is something nobody could stop. We must let the Black Devil Four Nations understand that we, the Black Devil Great Lake, is ultimately the rule-maker!” The thin green-haired old man gave a cold laugh, “Just like how we frequently pay the Fiery Zhao Nation a visit for slaughter and annihilate many cities. Or even the Southern Cloud Nation where we would occasionally act, and that is considered giving the Southern Cloud King a lot of respect already.”
The magma giant said with a deep voice: “I know we should act, just that what I am saying is it isn’t fun to provoke the other party. We should just choose a smaller city and prove our point.”
“Mn.” The thin green-haired old man also nodded, “A small city will be fine. The Southern Cloud King would likely turn crazy if we chose to sacrifice a big city.”
“Also, whenever those of our lineage act, we must perform it spectacularly.” The green-robed male mentioned.
There were many devils within the Black Devil Great Lake. They could be categorized under different sects too.
The Blood Sacrifice was also alternated between the three most prominent sects.
“Since we must do things spectacularly, and we are going to choose a little city.” The green-haired thin old man continued, “Then that little city must be slightly special. I feel that the small city called ‘Ardent Fire City’ is not bad. There is a relatively amazing genius who emerged recently from this place. He is quite amazing within the Southern Cloud Nation. Eliminating this small city where that absolute genius came from would be considered intimidating the Southern Cloud Nation! We must let the entire Southern Cloud Nation know the notoriety of our Black Devil Great Lake!”
“Mn, alright.” The magma giant agreed too.
“Then it’ll be the Ardent Fire City. The two of you will be in charge of arranging the entire matter. Remember, you must do things beautifully and eliminate the entire Ardent Fire City during the Blood Sacrifice.” The green-robed male ordered. His two subordinates both agreed. He would naturally not obstruct the arrangement of matters like the Blood Sacrifice.
A black-horned muscular figure looked respectfully at the thin green-haired old man who sat cross-legged in front. The thin green-haired old man had a slender black snake which wrapped around him. This snake made the muscular male feel a strand of fear.
“Relax. The matter you asked of me has been arranged.” The thin green-haired old man said, “It is rare for our Black Devil Great Lake to act once against the Southern Cloud Nation during the Blood Sacrifice. This time, it is the turn of our lineage, and that gave me the chance to help you. We have agreed on the matter–the place of sacrifice will be Ardent Fire City. Your enmity can be avenged during this sacrifice.”
“Many thanks, Ancestor.” The black-horned muscular figure trembled in excitement.
He had always been trying his best to earn the favor from the ancestor and spent more than half his earnings to purchase the poison that his ancestor liked. Only then did the ancestor promised him.
After all, it was too hard for him to take revenge by himself.
The city of Southern Cloud Nation was not somewhere anyone dared to attack. It was much harder trying to succeed in destroying a city. They had to mobilize the entire Black Devil Great Lake! For the Black Devil Great Lake to annihilate a city, one was doing so to intimidate everyone, and second, was for the sake of the ‘Blood Sacrifice’.
“Chen Niu, you will be participating in the battle this time. Don’t disappoint me.” The thin green-haired old man said, “The entire Ardent Fire City must be offered for the Blood Sacrifice. Not a single one must remain.”
“Yes.” The black-horned muscular figure felt incredibly excited at this moment. His eyes were filled with expectations and fighting spirit. He had been waiting a long time for this day. He sought to see the despair and the fear from the eyes of Marquis Ardent Fire watching as he personally killed the other party.
