Other than the report on why Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master was unable to transcend, there were two other intelligence reports which Xue Ying paid greater importance to.
One of it was according to his teacher, other than the five Rulers from the Deity world and the three Rulers of the Abyss from the various superpowers; there was still another superpower hidden in the cosmos. This superpower was extremely secretive, and there should be very few experts amongst them. Those who knew of their existences were very few too, and even some Paragons might not know of their existences.
This superpower had a distinctive trait–their members all had no lines of karma!
‘No karmic lines?’ Xue Ying was a bit puzzled. Discovering others from karma was a commonly used method. Even his teacher Bloodshed God Emperor had a karmic line too–like the karma linkage between him and his teacher!
But some experts had no karmic lines at all?
According to the intelligence report, this was an extremely hidden secret in the entire cosmos, and only Rulers knew of it! Some Rulers had not even told the Paragons underneath them. Naturally, Bloodshed God Emperor had spoken to all disciples and good friends he valued.
“This matter is unique, and could not be leaked out! The moment one discovers an enemy with no karmic line, one has to report those he called as a teacher.” Bloodshed God Emperor also heavily reminded him in the intelligence report.
‘Who would have thought.’
Xue Ying sighed inwardly, ‘There is such a secret superpower hidden in the cosmos. But the chances of me meeting them should be very low.’
He would temporarily place this aside.
Xue Ying paid closer notice of the final intelligence report that was interesting.
‘Primal Master is truly bored.’ Xue Ying revealed a grin. There was an intelligence report amongst that given by his teacher, ‘Cosmos Deity-Demon List’.
The Cosmos Deity-Demon List was made by that unconventional independent, most ancient Ruler, ‘Primal Master’. Under his boredom, he had created a list ranking the strongest 100 cultivators in the entire cosmos! And he had given them a ranking. Every time Primal Master affirmed the rankings, he would only pass to the experts with their names listed on it.
This list had merely recorded–
Cosmos Deity-Demon List: 1st, Bloodshed God Emperor
2nd, Abyss Primogenitor
3rd: Primal Master
4th: Purgatory Ruler
5th: Temporal Island Lord
6th: Myriad God Palace Head
7th: Empress Qian He
8th: Pang Yi
9th: Bloody Ruler
10th: Monarch Green
11th: Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction
99th: Forefather Fierce Tyrant
100th: Sovereign Star Meteor
It was solely a ranking list with no explanations at all.
‘Pang Yi is ranked eighth? And he is higher ranked than Bloody Ruler?’ Xue Ying was speechless after viewing this Cosmos Deity-Demon List. He had never heard of Pang Yi becoming a Ruler, yet he was able to rank eighth! Even the most famous person in the entire Deity world and Abyss, and publicly recognized as the existence closest to that of a Ruler, Monarch Green, was ranked tenth.
‘But I do not have a ranking yet.’ Xue Ying murmured inwardly. His combat power should be stronger than Forefather Fierce Tyrant and the others, ‘I have only just broken through and has revealed my strength recently. I believe I will be able to be ranked the next time the list comes out.’
Crimson Stone Courtyard.
“Father.” Xue Ying had just appeared in the cavern-dwelling when his daughter, Qing Yao, took the initiative in welcoming him joyously.
“Xue Ying.” Jing Qiu and Monarch Mo Xue appeared too.
“Father, I’ve heard that you fought one on three against three powerful existences and killed one even still?” Qing Yao’s eyes were twinkling. She was awfully yearning for that scene.
Xue Ying looked at his daughter and laughed, “I’ve only killed an avatar. Deaths and injuries are still quite common when powerful existences fought amongst each other, but most of them were merely avatars! It is rare when both true bodies and avatars are exterminated.”
“Good Son-in-law, the whole scene created in the Dark Abyss by those killing you is huge. So many Abyss Sovereigns acting and even existences like King Patrol Devil, Emperor Qi Hai have acted… and there are even rumors of White Sovereign King supporting behind them! For you to come back alive is something very amazing already. Many good old friends of mine say that the chances of this Highness Dong Bo coming back is very low. It’s a pity they were wrong!” Monarch Mo Xue was filled with praise.
Xue Ying chuckled, “Oh right, Teacher has given me the responsibility as one of the Monarchs of the Five Places, and has given me a forbidden ground. Let us prepare to move off.”
“Monarchs of the Five Places?” Monarch Mo Xue, Jing Qiu, and Qing Yao were all puzzled.
“It’s only an official position, albeit a unique one.” Xue Ying said, “Saying it as ‘Monarchs of the Five Places’, there are only two who took up positions, and they are North Hu Palace Head and my Senior Disciple Brother, Gu Zang.”
“North Hu Palace Head and Monarch Gu Zang? They are already amazing existences amongst powerful existences.” Monarch Mo Xue understood that this ‘Monarchs of the Five Places’ position must be something amazing.
“You even have a forbidden ground?” Jing Qiu was puzzled.
“Mn, it’s at the Black Fog Sea.” Xue Ying said, “Naturally, I’ll have to reconstruct the place. Oh, and where’s Yu’er?”
“Yu’er has been stuck at a bottleneck and can’t break through. He is currently roaming around. I’ve already transmitted a message to Yu’er for him to come back as soon as possible. But he said he will be late, and will most likely come back after half a month.” Jing Qiu said.
“If that’s the case, then we’ll let him go to the Black Fog Sea directly.” Xue Ying said, “Let’s not wait for him anymore.”
That day, Xue Ying brought along his wife and the others on the Starfield Flying Ship towards Black Fog Sea.
“That is Black Fog Sea?” Qing Yao’s eyes were very bright. She was delightedly looking at the huge black fog filled within the starry sky.
“I’ve heard that there is a huge array enveloping this area, preventing us from getting near to it.” Monarch Mo Xue said.
Xue Ying replied, “You guys wait here for me.”
He broke through the sky and went forward.
Jing Qiu, Monarch Mo Xue, and Qing Yao were all waiting on top of the flying ship deck, looking at it. They could only see Xue Ying easily entering through the array obstacles, arriving by the boundary of the Black Fog Sea.
‘Let’s begin.’ Xue Ying looked at the rolling endless black fog which was also his forbidden ground from now. If he had become a powerful existence, he would most likely be spending a long period here. Most powerful existences would have their territory, and even Bloodshed God Emperor had his place–the ‘Bloodshed God Palace’. After all, only when he constructed the place himself would he be most familiar with it.
And he could always fortify the ground continuously over the years.
“Hong long long~”
Xue Ying directly operated the World Energy. With his attainment in the world aspect, he could control the world energy from an area of 3 trillion kilometers.
World energy could transform into the myriad existences.
That was on the condition he understood the structure of the substance.
Following which, with a thought by Xue Ying, he could see endless ground within forming within the 3 trillion kilometers in range of region. The land became denser deeper down. All sorts of subterranean rocks and even metals were forming. There were even some of the more unique materials within. Naturally, many Transcendents and ordinary Deities valued these materials. Because they were materials which Xue Ying had dissected entirely before, they were some of the more ordinary ones.
The world energy could transform however he wanted.
A vast land appeared, and the Black Fog Sea had surrounded the ground! The Black Fog Sea was approximately just a small area of the entire place.
Rivers were surging on the land.
Trees were growing, and mountains undulating. The scene was quite beautiful.
Right at the center of the land, there was a chain of palaces that were grand. Some were given for guests to stay in, and some were for protectors. Some were for disciples, and some were for World Deity lifeforms they were breeding. Some were even for descendants and disciples of the future generations for cultivating, adventuring, undertaking trials and other areas! There was also a cultivation ground for himself, a place for researching secret techniques, a place to welcome guests…
Even still, the chain of palaces made by Xue Ying as compared to the territory of other powerful existences was considered more ordinary.
He was after all, too young, and there were too few people following him. Thus, the chain of palaces he needed was smaller too.
‘There’s also the arrays.’ Xue Ying might not be very formidable regarding arrays, but he had been researching the time-space array within the scarlet wristband, and also the ‘Dao’ within the True God weapon Flying Knife. He had also cultivated all sorts of arrays as part of the absolute arts, and naturally, his attainment had reached a high profound stage. He began rampantly weaving many arrays.
Especially for the mirage array, the time-space array, and the substance array–they were more common.
The substance array primarily borrowed upon some profound mysteries of the “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body”. After weaving them, he had fortified the structures. Even though it was far from the density and toughness of his black armor, only stage four World Deity could move the current structure now.
The time-space array had also caused space in many places to change.
The mirage array, borrowing upon some of the profound mysteries from the ‘Dao of Mirage’… it was even more mythical. Even stage four World Deity could get lost if they barged into the place.
Saying it was fast. In reality, Xue Ying had spent three days or so before finally completing his construction of his territory. After constructing it, did he informed those subordinates of his from the ‘Eastern Region Supervisor Envoy residence’ to come over. After becoming a Monarch of the Five Places, he naturally would no longer take up the position as a supervisor envoy.
“This will be our future home.” Xue Ying walked along with his wife Jing Qiu, his daughter Qing Yao and Monarch Mo Xue together, viewing the chains of palaces.
“This is the simplest of construction currently. If you have any desires for your own home, tell me anytime.” Xue Ying laughed. He would fortify his territory as he grew stronger.
“Good son-in-law, the news of you promoting has already been spread. By then, I believe there will be many who comes paying a visit to you, Monarch Dong Bo.” Monarch Mo Xue laughed, “You have also just constructed a forbidden ground, opened a residence, so it’ll be best if you organized a feast and invited many powerful existences over.”
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded.
With a forbidden ground and an official residence, this was a significant matter even to cultivators. He should indeed organize a feast.
“Sir Father-in-law, this matter is something you are more familiar with so I’ll let you handle it.” Xue Ying laughed.
“Good good good.” Monarch Mo Xue laughed in reply. Contacting the powerful existences of many places was something that would give him respect. Before reincarnating, being able to gain such respect was something that made him truly happy.
Jing Qiu said from the side, “Xue Ying, you should send people from the God Palace and build a time-space teleportation array too.”
“Alright.” Xue Ying nodded.
Without a time-space teleportation array, some of the weaker cultivators without starfield flying ships would have a hard time coming over. For instance, his son Dong Bo Yu had no Starfield Flying Ship yet!
Suddenly, a voice came transmitting over. It resounded by the side of Xue Ying–
“Dong Bo, I’ve recently changed this Cosmos Deity-Demon List of mine. This is something which I made during my free time, and I’ll only inform those cultivators on the list.” Primal Master’s voice was something Xue Ying was quite familiar with, so he was able to recognize him.
Following which, the latest Cosmos Deity-Demon List was transferred over to Xue Ying.
