Chapter 1116: Target of Assassination
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Even though Paragon Masters were comparative in strength, there were still differences between them.
The stronger Paragon Masters were existences that unparalleled existences could not kill. For instance, Southern Cloud King, Great Paragon Fuyi, Sky-Rending Great Paragon, Black Devil Great Lake’s chief religion master, ‘Yama Religion Master’. Only then were they qualified to be absolute overlords of Realm Heart Great Land! Unparalleled existences did not dare to hold any contempt for them; they dared proclaim themselves as rulers of a region. And the reason why some devils from the Black Devil Great Lake were not afraid of bringing chaos to cities within the Summer Wind Ancient Nation was all because of Yama Religion Master.
Reaching this level, they were qualified to disregard giving any respect to unparalleled existences! The Southern Cloud Sacred Religion was one of the ten great religions. They earned an astronomical amount of cosmos crystals, so much that it even incurred the greed in unparalleled existences, causing them to deal against Southern Cloud King. Nevertheless, Southern Cloud King survived through any direct combat, showing how steep his foundation was!
Those secondary to that level, even though they were comparable in strength, they could still not survive in front of unparalleled existences. That was the predicament for an absolute majority of Paragons.
No other choice.
‘Top-graded secret treasures’ would only improve part of the cultivator’s strength. For instance, a secret domain treasure would only increase the domain of the cultivator to level–three Cosmos God level! A level-two Cosmos God who only had transcendental domain would still die before unparalleled existences!
In terms of numbers, the Fan Clan had six Paragon Masters, the Summer Clan had nine, and currently, Cang Clan had seven! Hence, those who dared say they could survive before unparalleled existences were few in numbers even across the entire Summer Wind Ancient Nation.
And such absolute overlord was very few in numbers across the entire Realm Heart Great Land.
‘Great Paragon Fuyi is someone ranked in the top two amongst Summer Clan’s nine Great Paragons.’ Xue Ying was dumbstruck, ‘If he asked for a quota personally, it shouldn’t be too hard for him to acquire it, yet he is here to compete for it? With his identity, even if it were to ensure his reputation is kept, the Summer Clan would still fight for a slot for him.’
“Xue Ying, have you chosen it?” Southern Cloud King asked.
Xue Ying waved his hand. A scroll appeared on the table. The scroll rolled open completely. There were many missions on it, and every task would reward the recipient with corresponding ‘contribution points’.
The scroll was inscribed densely with several hundred missions.
Of which there were 50 missions involving assassination.
12 targets of assassination were Paragon Masters, rewarding the recipient contribution points ranging from ‘30,000 to 80,000 contribution points’ upon completion!
The other 38 missions involved killing level-two Cosmos Gods that would reward contribution points from ‘3,000 to 30,000’.
Following that, they were the ‘special treasure missions’.
All sorts of special treasures could be directly traded for contribution points!
For instance, ranking at the highest, ‘Broken Teeth Serpent Bead’. A single bead could be exchanged for 20,000 contribution points!
‘Broken Teeth Serpent Bead? It seems the six great ancient nations desire it a lot. Any of the six great ancient nations are willing to pay an enormous price or even provide the quota just by taking out a single Broken Teeth Serpent Bead.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
The Broken Teeth Serpent Bead originated from the ‘Broken Teeth Mountain Range’.
The top treasure land of the Realm Heart Great Land was none other than the Realm Heart God Palace.
And the number one most dangerous place on Realm Heart Great Land was the Broken Teeth Mountain Range! If one observed the mountain range from afar, one would see that the Broken Teeth Mountain Range was the highest mountain peak, and it was in the shape of half-broken teeth! These teeth were towering, which was also why the entire mountain range had been named as the ‘Broken Teeth Mountain Range’. The Broken Teeth Mountain Range occupied an incomparably vast area. It was practically boundless, approximately equivalent to three Summer Wind Ancient Nations. Inside the Broken Teeth Mountain Range, many dangerous grounds existed. According to rumors, two unparalleled existences had fallen before within the Broken Teeth Mountain Range.
But many final realm Cosmos Gods and unparalleled existences still went in for adventures.
And according to legends, the most famous item within the Broken Teeth Mountain Range was the ‘Broken Teeth Serpent Bead’. Anyone who obtained a single Broken Teeth Serpent Bead would immediately become an upper VIP in any of the six great ancient nations and could exchange for all sorts of benefits.
Hence, many cultivators still took the risk to foray in the Broken Teeth Mountain Range! And some serial killers who were pursued by would also escape into the Broken Teeth Mountain Range.
An absolute majority died within.
And few survived… some were even lucky to obtain vast treasures!
“The target I’ve chosen is a devil in the Western Floating Nation.” Xue Ying transmitted back.
“Western Floating Nation? Mn, be careful.”
“Rest assured, Teacher.”
Xue Ying looked towards the opened scroll.
Of the 50 targets of assassination inscribed on the scroll, five were in Western Floating Nation.
Even though the Western Floating Nation was a country, in reality, that was a gathering place for devils. Even though its environment wasn’t as nasty as the Black Devil Great Lake, it had as many devils as that in the Black Devil Great Lake.
Actually, the strongest person here was the highest-ranking Western Floating Nation King. But he usually called himself ‘Western Floating Old Ancestor’. Western Floating Old Ancestor was also an absolute overlord of this region. He frequently fought against the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation directly! He was extremely arrogant, and would occasionally send his subordinates to bring disaster to other five great ancient nations. Western Floating Old Ancestor was someone the six great ancient nations sought to kill, yet it’s a pity he could not be killed!
As the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation was situated close to the Western Floating Nation, the ancient nation had sent many experts before, killing countless within the Western Floating Nation. It’s a pity that Western Floating Old Ancestor did not care! He was similar to Snow Hook King in this aspect.
Snow Hook King did not care about giving any face to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation too!
But Snow Hook King wasn’t a devil, just that he was too proud.
And ‘Western Floating Nation’ was filled with countless devils.
This time, a bounty was placed by the Summer Wind Ancient Nation on assassinating five higher-ups from the Western Floating Nation. Naturally, no bounty was set on Western Floating Old Ancestor as that was someone even unparalleled existences could not kill.
One was the second-ranking expert from the Western Floating Nation, and was a Paragon Master called ‘Broken Sky Paragon Master’!
The other four were called the ‘Four Vicious of Western Floating’.
‘How would I dare to assassinate Broken Sky Paragon Master? As for the Four Vicious of Western Floating, they are comparable to me in strength. Now that the Realm Heart God Palace is about to open, the devils from the Western Floating Nation would have likely known that bounties were placed on their heads, and they would certainly be on alert. This is even their territory. Hence, it is highly possible for Western Floating Old Ancestor or Broken Sky Paragon Master to come and save them when they face danger. It is difficult to kill them.’ Xue Ying understood this point.
‘With my strength, I could only target ‘Devil Monarch Wind Moon’ as my strengths curb his weaknesses. I must eliminate him as fast as possible before escaping at the next instance.’ Xue Ying had the pinnacle of void-ification, and hence, he was still confident of fleeing.
“Devil Monarch Wind Moon!”
Xue Ying looked at the name on the scroll, and the total reward of ‘11,000 contribution points’. His eyes were filled with excitement.
According to experience, earning 10,000 contribution points would be sufficient to obtain a quota. But because the bounty was great, the difficulty of killing the target was intense too!
Xue Ying kept the scroll and immediately stood up.
He had already altered his appearances and used the pinnacle of void-ification to conceal his aura. Xue Ying easily disguised himself as an ordinary Unity Realm expert. A Unity Realm white-robed young man wasn’t worth mentioning in the Western Floating Nation at all. He could not be called a vast expert, yet neither would he be bullied.
“Devil Monarch Wind Moon.”
Xue Ying was currently searching for his target.
With the help of Western Floating Old Ancestor, traces of his target could not be found temporarily. The web of intelligence by the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion could temporarily not find anything on his target too. It seemed Devil Monarch Wind Moon had become low-profile the moment the Realm Heart God Palace opened.
Late at night.
‘Where could he be hiding?’
Using the pinnacle of void-ification, Xue Ying strolled around the residence of Devil Monarch Wind Moon with suspicion.
‘Devil Monarch Wind Moon liked girls the most. Every girl in his hand would end up either tortured to death…’ Detailed information on Devil Monarch Wind Moon flashed through Xue Ying’s mind. He wanted to deduce the position where Devil Monarch Wind Moon could hide accordingly.
