Chapter 401: The Xia Clan’s Very First World Deity
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
Within the space of the Realm Heart.
The white-robed Xue Ying was currently floating in space, his eyes closed as he stretched his senses outward in order to feel the countless vibrations of the surrounding space. These countless vibrations were none other than the materialized forms of the Laws of Profound Mysteries, which all combined to form the Laws of the World. Someone with a shallow cultivation level would simply feel that this was way beyond their comprehension. Only after Xue Ying had comprehended a grade one True Meaning had he been able to see through the materialization of the Law.
“So this is the Laws of the World.” Now that the curtain had been raised, a whole new world seemed to be awaiting him behind it.
Xue Ying closed his eyes as his mind began to fuse the countless Profound Mysteries before him; only after a full day did they begin to finally straighten out and consolidate together.
“Even though I’ve comprehended it, it’s still quite hard to describe it.” Xue Ying opened his eyes and gazed at the Laws of the World in front of him. Even though it looked extremely messy at first glance, it appeared completely organized to Xue Ying; it was as if the many strings of the ‘Laws of the World’ had come together to form an instrument that the current Xue Ying could reach out and strum.
Xue Ying smiled and lightly plucked the Laws of the World.
He didn’t solely depend on the control of the Realm Heart and instead focused on the guidance from the Laws of Profound Mysteries. Just this simple movement caused countless bubbles to form, all of which were filled with pure realm power. Tens of thousands of bubbles appeared in only an instant, each of which held a truly frightening amount of power. If they were to suddenly explode for some reason, it would probably cause the annihilation of all lifeforms on the Xia Clan world.
“This is the ‘Law of the Realm’ within the Laws of the World.” Xue Ying muttered, “It seems that comprehending the Realm Heart allows one to gain control of the entire Law of the Realm.”
Xue Ying unhurriedly strolled through the void.
The space surrounding him opened up to let him through in an extremely natural manner; the vibrations that normally occurred had been suppressed as if the space was protecting an emperor.
“Realm Lord,” Xue Ying said as he opened both of his hands. The surrounding space trembled slightly as indistinct miniature worlds were formed and then extinguished within them. “The feeling of controlling the entire world truly is amazing. There’s definitely an enormous gap between a Deity and a World Deity, one that isn’t as simple as a gap in their combat power. It’s something much more important: a gulf in terms of laws. I can simply play around with stage two World Deities now that I’m in control of the entire Law of the Realm. When I exchanged moves with the Sorcerer God, I reckon that he most likely looked down on my realm.”
Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
The Sorcerer God was a stage one World Deity who’d grasped hold of a grade one Deity Heart, while the Great Demonic God was a stage two World Deity who’d fused two grade one Deity Hearts together and was much stronger in terms of Laws compared to him.
They had completely suppressed him with their realms back then. However, their Deity Avatars had still been suppressed to the ‘limit of a Demigod;’ thus, despite their understanding of the Laws of Profound Mysteries being stronger, they still hadn’t been able to outright kill Xue Ying. And when Xue Ying had finally defeated them, he’d limited himself to the strength of a peak-stage Deity, yet they’d still died from the aftershock. However, they’d only been defeated in the end because of the World Energy his attack had been imbued with.
“I’m not any weaker than you anymore, Sorcerer God.” Xue Ying revealed a grin.
Hua, hua, hua…
Countless Xue Ying’s appeared in the surrounding space, all of which were grinning. Immediately afterward, they began to transform: Some turned into demons, some into mountains, some into rivers… For a moment, a world quite like the real world appeared within the space of the Realm Heart. It was an earth filled with forests, mountains, and rivers, with both beasts and humans present.
All of it seemed incomparably real.
“Of the many grade one Deity Hearts, the Realm Deity Heart focuses on the aspect of controlling a realm.” Xue Ying sighed. “Now that I have it, even if Deities attacked with a million different tactics, they’d easily be played to death by me.”
There was truly an enormous gap between a Deity and a World Deity.
Xue Ying left the Realm Heart’s space and appeared near the peak of a mountain.
Every step he took brought him to a different location in the Xia Clan world. Some of the places he appeared at were many millions of kilometers apart, even though all he’d done was take a single step! This was many times more formidable than the Extreme Piercing Deity Heart’s ability to cross fifty thousand kilometers in a single step.
“There aren’t any places that I can’t be in my world.” Xue Ying stood on a beach and watched the endlessly lapping waves.
Even though he had yet to become a World Deity…
Even though he’d yet to become a World Deity, a grade one Deity Heart represented the World Deity realm. The power that the Laws of the Realm contained were so much more terrifying than pure strength and speed!
“It’s time for me to finally become a World Deity.” Xue Ying took another step and then disappeared from the beach, arriving in the fifty-thousand-kilometer-wide dark void that surrounded Crimson Rock Mountain. Crimson Rock immediately transported Xue Ying into the treasure.
On Crimson Dust Island.
Crimson Rock immediately asked, “Dong Bo, what’s caused you to bring your true body here?”
As his avatar was always stationed in Crimson Rock Mountain, his true body rarely came by.
“I’ve grasped hold of a grade one Deity Heart. It’s time for me to become a World Deity.” Xue Ying said.
“You’ve grasped hold of a grade one Deity Heart?” Crimson Rock was beyond excitement as he said, “Oh heavens, this, this…excluding accelerated time, you’ve only been cultivating for 900 years, right? And including that accelerated time, you’ve still only cultivated for 1,500 years! However, being in a time acceleration zone isn’t much help toward sensing of the Laws of the World… You only took 900 years to grasp hold of a grade one Deity Heart? Even Hui Ming spent 2,200 years!”
Xue Ying laughed. “That’s still quite fast. When I start my breakthrough, I’ll have to trouble you to prevent the others from seeing it.” As he was the territory lord of a material world, if he was only becoming a Deity, he could easily cover up the disturbance that opening his Deity Sea would cause. However, he was breaking through to the World Deity level this time! The process of becoming a World Deity would create a truly enormous disturbance—one so large that it would exceed that of the entire Xia Clan world. Even as a territory lord, he wouldn’t be able to cover it up entirely.
“Leave it to me.” Crimson Rock nodded.
Xue Ying took a step forward and arrived at a short tree nearby. He then sat cross-legged in the midst of the fallen leaves beneath it.
The soul in his conscious sea began fusing together with the Law of Profound Mysteries behind the Realm Deity Heart with a hong.
Xue Ying’s soul also began to transform and rapidly became clearer. It became a tiny cute man with really tender skin. Afterward, rivers and mountains began to appear around him, as the appearance of an enormous world began to form around the tiny man.
“The realm is me, and I am the realm,” the tiny man stated.
“Deity Sea, open!”
Hong, long, long~ The fiery Qi within his body transformed into a fiercely savage, fiery Deity energy. It was as vibrant as the ocean.
An enormous illusion slowly appeared above Crimson Dust Island. The illusion was that of an ocean hundreds of millions of kilometers across. That was right, hundreds of millions! A grade two Deity Heart’s Deity sea would merely span fifty thousand kilometers across, yet a grade one Deity Heart’s Deity sea could span hundreds of millions of kilometers the moment it appeared. One had to realize that that the entire Xia Clan world, including all of the Transcendent worlds, world gaps, void gaps, and external membrane, was only five million kilometers across!
The disturbance caused by becoming a World Deity in the Xia Clan world was truly too large; it was nigh unconcealable.
Peng, peng, peng! A huge amount of Deity crystals began to appear near the short tree. The white-robed Xue Ying took a deep breath and then began to absorb the Deity energy from the countless Deity crystals into his Deity Sea.
His Deity sea was truly too large; it needed more Deity energy than he could provide to compensate.
As for it developing into an inner world, the amount of Deity energy required was naturally even larger! It would take too long to cultivate step by step, and as Xue Ying was a trusted person of Crimson Rock Mountain, he was able to do such an extravagant thing with Deity crystals.
Hua, hua, hua~ His Deity energy sea was truly vast and seemingly endless. As it spanned hundreds of millions of kilometers, it held a truly frightening amount of power. However, one could only develop an inner world once they’d achieved such an enormous level of power.
Only after absorbing Deity energy for nine full days did his Deity Sea finally reach its limit.
“Inner world, transform!”
His entire Deity Sea began transforming.
It was like the creation of a world.
His entire Deity Sea began to surge as it began forming the Myriad Existences: the earth, the forests, the rivers, the deserts, the grasslands…everything began to emerge.
A world hundreds of millions of kilometers wide was slowly birthed.
However, this world felt quite strange, for it didn’t contain any air. As such, the forests and plants could neither grow nor die.
“I’ve only grasped hold of the Realm Deity Heart, which is only a portion of the Laws of the World.” Xue Ying’s face appeared above the enormous world. His eyes alone were more than five hundred thousand kilometers wide as he overlooked the world that he’d just created. “The laws haven’t been perfected; this world is merely an embryo.”
The ‘inner world’ of stage one through stage four World Deities weren’t perfect; they wouldn’t be able to allow life to reproduce and grow.
Only when they became a powerful existence would their inner world become truly perfect; only then would life be able to reproduce.
Still, it’s enough to simply collect souls or temporarily allow Transcendents to inhabit it, Xue Ying thought. …
Underneath the tree.
When Xue Ying opened his eyes, they were now filled with a frighteningly suppressive power. His every action action also seemed to be filled with might and power.
“Having an inner world is indeed different.” Xue Ying sighed. If World Deities wanted to slaughter, they could simply open up their World Deity domains—these represented the projection of their ‘inner worlds.’ The bigger their inner world, the bigger their domain! A stage one World Deity’s domain could encompass millions of kilometers and could easily kill billions of lifeforms. Even Deities depending on numbers would simply be sending themselves to their deaths in front of a stage one World Deity.
“Congratulations, Dong Bo,” Crimson Rock continued in elation, “on becoming a World Deity in only 900 years!”
Xue Ying laughed.
A World Deity.
They were considered upper-middle class people, even in the Deity World and the Dark Abyss.
The very first World Deity in the entire history of Xia Clan had quietly emerged that day.
