Chapter 1071: Upper Honored Guest
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Xue Ying was momentarily stunned. He stepped on the void and looked down at the Flying Snow City. At the same time, he asked: “Teacher, why should I not promise them directly?”
Just like previously when he wanted to inspect the Scarlet Cloud God Spear spearhead, a single word from Fan Tian Chong permitted Xue Ying to view it. Even though the spearhead merely cost a few hundred million cosmos crystals, just ‘observing’ it once did not require much favor! But no matter what, the other party allowed Xue Ying to inspect it due to friendship. If others asked Xue Ying for help, and the benefits were sufficiently high, he had no reasons to decline them.
“Of the Black Devil Four Nations, other than that Snow Hook King, the others would likely give some respect to the Fan Clan right?” Xue Ying replied.
Black Devil Great Lake relied on killing to terrorize the Black Devil Four Nations.
And the Fan Clan… relied on an abnormally horrifying strength to ensure none of the Black Devil Four Nations dare to defy them. Even in the Snow Hook Nation, it was just the Snow Hook King who was unbridled. His subordinates usually gave respect to the Fan Clan.
The Fan Clan was none other than the crownless king in the region of Black Devil Four Nations!
Actually, it wasn’t just the Black Devil Four Nations. Like the nine countries north of Summer Wind Ancient Nation and the neighboring tier two and three nations, they were all within the region of influence by the Fan CLan! More importantly, it was because of scorn from ‘Cang Clan’ and ‘Summer Clan’ towards other nations, and only the Fan Clan was willing to take in experts from all over the place.
Even though the Moonflower Ancient Nation and Towering Sky Ancient Nation had tried permeating into the surrounding countries, their influencing power was far lacking compared to the Fan Clan.
“If I am not wrong, Fan Tian Chong will be coming over to find you during this period.” Southern Cloud King transmitted, “But it is impossible for him to give you a good condition since he couldn’t! If he represented the Fan Clan to ask you for help, you should say… that you require the identity of an ‘Upper Honored Guest’ and 10,000 contribution points after the matter ends!”
“Upper Honored Guest identity? 10,000 contribution points?” Xue Ying began hyperventilating.
He was one of the core members of the Southern Cloud Nation and understood many matters. The Fan Clan would usually either absorb experts from outside directly into their core power! Or they accepted them as Guest, Honored Guest, and Honored Guest Elder identities.
Guests were of the lowest ranking. These Guests had to completely follow the orders of the Fan Clan.
Honored Guests were much better, though the restrictions on them remained great.
Upper Honored Guests! That was comparatively less restrictive.
The highest possible identity outsiders could have in the Fan Clan was the ‘Honored Guest Elder’ rank! In terms of rank, the Honored Guest Elders were equivalent to elders of the Fan Clan, albeit they did not have real power. Xue Ying’s teacher, the ‘Southern Cloud King’ was an Honored Guest Elder of the Fan Clan! Honored Guest Elders had comparatively more freedom. Usually, they would not participate in affairs of the Fan Clan.
Only when there were extremely crucial affairs for the Fan Clan would ‘Ancestor Fan’ gave an order to mobilize these Honored Guest Elders! Others were not permitted to give an order.
“Teacher, the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion once passed me relevant intelligence, of which Fiery Zhao King and Maple Nest King are both merely Upper Honored Guests of the Fan Clan.” Xue Ying felt startled. He transmitted a question, “I am only at the Primal Chaos Realm. Am I qualified to receive the Upper Honored Guest identity too?”
“Haha, don’t belittle yourself! Given your strength, it is certain for you to become a Cosmos God! The moment you break through and improve the Five Phases Sealing Technique to a higher level, by then, you won’t be any weaker than the two of them!” Southern Cloud King transmitted.
Of the kings from the Black Devil Four Nations…
The Southern Cloud King and Snow Hook King were both legendary characters famous across the entire Realm Heart Great Land. They could both survive under the pursue of unparalleled existences.
The Fiery Zhao King and Maple Nest King were comparatively weaker, but they far surpassed ordinary Cosmos Gods. As the Fiery Zhao Nation was too close to the Black Devil Great Lake, it had become the backyard of the Black Devil Great Lake and was often rife with killing. In the case of Maple Nest Nation, they instead relied entirely on the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. The reason why these tier two countries did so was ultimately that they lacked power.
‘After I became a Cosmos God, it should be relatively easy for me to ask for the identity of an Upper Honored Guest. But now when I have yet to breakthrough… Furthermore, I should ask for another 10,000 contribution points?’ Xue Ying remained speechless.
10,000 contribution points?
Within the system of the Fan Clan’s honored guests, 10,000 contribution points could be exchanged for 10 billion cosmos crystals! More importantly, experts would disdain to exchange them for cosmos crystals because they would not decide to rely on the Fan Clan merely for the sake of these riches! Instead, those Honored Guests would depend on the ‘contribution points’ to exchange for some secret impartation scriptures which were put available by the Fan Clan for the Honored Guests.
Even though the Fan Clan would not let outsiders learn their core scriptures, just allowing outsiders to learn part of what they had sufficed in making experts from all around the world cry with joy! How deep was the foundation of the Fan Clan? Just part of it exceeded what the Southern Cloud Nation had.
“It is definitely impossible for this to happen on regular occasions. But now, they will definitely agree to your requests.” The Southern Cloud King transmitted, “This implicates the internal battle between the three great clans of the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. In a while when they accept your conditions, you will understand everything.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying replied.
“You only have to call out your conditions. By then, just inform me about that matter, and I’ll pitch in as well.” The Southern Cloud King said, “It is not easy to earn 10,000 contribution points even if you become a Comsos God.”
Xue Ying nodded in agreement.
How many treasures could a Cosmos God save over the years? How much contribution points could he earn from participating in a single mission?
The Fan Clan would usually reward Cosmos Gods with several hundred contribution points in every mission. Even those at the level of the Fiery Zhao King and Maple Nest King would typically earn several thousand once a task was completed. Furthermore, such opportunities were rare. Usually, the Fan Clan would handle the matter within themselves. Often, those that required these Honored Guests to act were severe matters to which they did not have sufficient experts.
This time, the Southern Cloud King reminded Xue Ying to ask the Fan Clan for both the Upper Honored Guest identity and 10,000 contribution points… which was something that astonished Xue Ying.
Xue Ying descended from the sky. He stepped on the void, and after taking a few steps, he arrived within his own residence in the Flying Snow City. His residence was built for kings. His current conferred title was ‘King Flying Snow.”
Many servants and protectors were respectful when they saw Xue Ying. Their eyes were filled with worship and respect. After all, Xue Ying was a legendary existence within the entire history of Southern Cloud Nation.
“My son!” Ying Shan Lie Hu excitedly came over to welcome him. Rong Xing Lan was beside him. She smiled at Xue Ying, “Xue Ying, it has been a long time since you returned. Your father and I have heard of your matter at the Fiery Zhao Nation.”
“That’s right! What was that move? According to hearsay, you actually took down that so-called Thunder King from the Sky Sword Nation with one single move?” Ying Shan Lie Hu asked excitedly.
Xue Ying nodded.
It might seem like a single move on the surface, but in reality, the Five Phases Sealing Technique was the perfect fusion and utilization of five different tenth level Void Lineage techniques simultaneously. It was stronger than how many other combat formations operated. In terms of its profound mysteries, it could even seal space, preventing the other party from escaping using the Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique! Furthermore, the complete power from the seal was practically equivalent to suppressing an expert using an independent space. This power could smash ordinary tenth level experts to death.
Those who survived would be trapped in the Five Phase Beads!
Hence, the moment Xue Ying succeeded in grasping this technique, he would naturally become famous across the Realm Heart Great Land. This was also the reason why Southern Cloud King felt the Fan Clan would invite Xue Ying for help.
“Sister, come and have a taste. This is a great wine which I brought back from the Primogenitor Ancient Nation.”
Xue Ying first accompanied his family to drink and eat. They also chatted for half a day. After all, his family understood the outside world too briefly.
Closely following that, Xue Ying announced that he would be entering closed-door cultivation.
“If there are no important matters, don’t disturb me at all when I am in closed-door cultivation. If the Fan Clan comes, just send me a message.” Xue Ying ordered.
“Yes, Master.” The magic dragon obediently replied. Its colossal body lay just outside the towering Void God Pagoda entrance.
Xue Ying then entered the pagoda and began studying the ‘Devil Heart Bell’.
Time passed. Even though Southern Cloud King mentioned that the Fan Clan would come, in reality, when Fan Tian Chong reached the Flying Snow City, it had been 30,000 years or so after Xue Ying entered closed-door cultivation.
Within the Void God Pagoda, seated on a huge floating rock, there was a white-robed young man with a golden bell floating beside him.
“Ding ding ding ding dang~”
The sound was beautiful. It reverberated within the god pagoda bringing with it a horrifying alluring effect.
“Master, Fan Tian Chong is here looking for Master.”
“He is finally here.”
Xue Ying opened his eyes and stood up. The golden bell floating beside him immediately flew down to his waist and slotted itself by it. Closely following that, it became concealed and disappeared from the naked eyes.
The Devil Heart Bell and the Five Phases Beads were usually hidden in his body when Xue Ying wasn’t using them.
“Hong long long~”
The door of the God Pagoda began opening.
Xue Ying walked out of it.
