Chapter 735: Invitation to a Void God Clan
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
As Xue Ying was gathering intelligence via his illusory realm, a warship had arrived outside this planet.
Within the warship, there was a green-scaled male clad in silver armor watching indifferently at the scene of Xue Ying interrogating the people.
“An outsider? What audacious behavior, he dares to do something like this to my descendants?” The man stared on coldly with his golden eyes. However, he habitually probed the other party’s combat power before taking any action.
An unseen ripple swept over from the warship across the planet.
“What?” The silver-armored, green-scaled male was wearing a chilly expression, but it had spontaneously changed into one of shock. “His soul seems to be at the Paragon realm?”
This warship had been bestowed upon him by the Void God whom he followed. This warship excelled at traveling through time-space, and in investigating the soul aura of other parties. Even though it was not as ridiculously powerful as the Black Gourd treasure spirit, who could even discern the strength of one’s soul, the warship could at least enable him to get an approximate gauge of the other party’s level!
“I would never have expected to encounter a powerful expert of another race on a random excursion, and he’s Paragon to boot.” The silver-armored green-scaled male nodded slightly.
Xue Ying, who was looking through the intelligence he had gathered and discussed it with the treasure spirit through his true body in his hometown, felt a faint unseen ripple sweeping across him. Although the ripple was extremely faint, Xue Ying was able to detect it due to his MIrage World and his control over the void.
“Mn?” Xue Ying’s expression shifted, and couldn’t help but look around. His vision penetrated through the walls of the palace hall, spotting the warship floating in the starry sky. Through the void, he also saw the silver-armored, green-scale male located within the warship.
Both parties stared at each other.
“This brother of another race is truly vigilant; you can actually discover me.” A voice sounded. The silver-armored, green-scaled male suddenly appeared within this palace hall, “Based on your appearance, I suppose you’re not from any of the eight great cosmoses that my race has vanquished, right?”
Xue Ying gave the other party a look-over.
He had just reviewed all the information he had gathered and understood that this cosmos was based on a bloodline cultivation system, and its inhabitants loved to fight! In this cosmos, “cosmos passages” would frequently form, and the inhabitants of this cosmos would use the passages to enter other cosmoses and conquer them. To vanquish another cosmos, they would have to rely on a cosmos passage of the highest level in order to send Rulers over to fight. The cosmos passage that Xue Ying had used to enter this cosmos would only allow entry to life forms that had yet to transcend, and would not allow this cosmos to send a large army through to conquer Xue Ying’s cosmos.
Despite having conquered eight other cosmoses, they were much better than the Ancestor Mother Religion.
They would not mistreat the original native lifeforms of other cosmoses. Instead, they would only send their people over to the other cosmoses to reproduce. They treated the other races like their own.
“I am Dong Bo Xue Ying. This is my first time visiting this cosmos.” Xue Ying said.
“I am Shan Dan.” The silver-armored, green-scaled male glanced at his two descendants, who were stuck in the illusory realm, “And it can be said that I am the ancestor of those two brats. They are descendants of my bloodline.”
Xue Ying felt kind of awkward at that moment.
He had utilized the illusory realm, and the ones he had used it on just so happened to be the other party’s descendants.
“Hahaha… you might not be aware of this, but we can always sense the reactions from the descendants of our own bloodline, and we would naturally pay more attention to the stronger ones.” The silver-armored green-scaled male explained, “I felt that something was off with my descendant’s current state, hence I rushed over.”
“I am ashamed. This is my first time here, so pardon my ignorance–that was why I had done this.” Xue Ying stated. At the same time, he retracted his illusory realm.
The two bloodline descendants who were sleeping immediately woke up. They stared with shock at the two new people who had appeared in the palace hall, especially when they saw that silver-armored, green-scaled man. They hurriedly stood up, shouting with excitement and fervor: “Patriarch!”
Through their bloodlines, they could tell that the man before them was their clan’s ancestor.
The creator of a clan, the strongest one in the clan, was known as the patriarch! The patriarch of this clan was this man, Shan Dan!
“Mn.” The silver-armored, green-scaled nodded nonchalantly, “I’ve come this time to meet a good friend of mine. You guys can just carry on with your stuff.”
“Brother Dong, where shall we go?” Shan Dan was quite polite.
“Alright. But Brother Shan, you should call me Dong Bo instead.” Xue Ying felt apprehensive. Brother Dong? This was the first time someone had addressed him like that.
The two soon arrived at the starry sky outside the planet.
“Hahaha, Dong Bo, you have just arrived at our cosmos and should not know many things. But you should know of the three Great Emperor-ranked clans, right? Those are the clans led by the three great Void Gods.” Shan Dan said.
“I’ve just heard of it.” Xue Ying replied.
“The clan I am currently serving is none other than one of the three Great Emperor Clans, the “Jiao Yun Clan”.” Shan Dan revealed. “Great Emperor Jiao Yun has three children, and their bloodline is extraordinary and highly concentrated. Furthermore, with their noble status, they are able to obtain a large amount of resources. Many experts are willing to follow his children, and the one I am currently serving is the Third Highness, “Jiao Yun Liu”.”
Xue Ying nodded after hearing that. He could deduce this.
In the bloodline cultivation system, the children of Void Gods naturally had a respected status. In addition, due to the father-child relationship, the father would focus on grooming his children, with the resources a Void God has, even the relatively small amount passed to the children would be beyond anyone’s imagination.
“You should know that our cosmos loves fighting. The weak will be eaten by the strong! The strong survive and the weak die.” Shan Dan said, “The battles are very cruel. Even the Highnesses will fight and slaughter each other. As long as their true bodies are not threatened, even the Void Gods will not intervene.”
As Xue Ying listened, he understood that Shan Dan polite’s demeanor was just an outward appearance. Even though this cosmos was rather inclusive towards everyone, the battles here were extremely cruel. The strong fed on the weak. The weak were disdained, the strong were respected! The weak might even be sold as slaves, or as gladiators in the arena for bloodsport!
Even the highly respected princes might suffer from great setbacks. Their bloodlines may be extraordinary, but nonetheless, they still had to awaken them through tempering!
“Thus, the Third Highness is also hiring more protectors.” Shan Dan mentioned, “Dong Bo, with your Paragon realm combat power, you can definitely join the ranks.”
“Are there any benefits?” Xue Ying got straight to the point. “And what do I have to do?”
He came to this cosmos primarily to improve his combat power.
“His Highness can easily provide you with benefits that most people would never be able to obtain.” Shan Dan said, “His Highness really values his protectors. As for your duties? Nothing much. His Highness will arrange a residence for you, and you just have to focus on your cultivation… only when a dangerous situation arises would the protectors be required to act and protect His Highness.”
“Currently, His Highness is at the Paragon realm. Thus, it is quite rare for him to encounter a dangerous situation.” Shan Dan mentioned, “The last time he experienced any trouble was about a billion years ago.”
“Is it possible to obtain the cultivation system from other cosmoses?” Xue Ying asked.
“Hahaha, this is the easiest thing to do.” Shan Dan laughed out loud, “We have too many of them!”
“Alright. I can try taking up this role.” Xue Ying nodded.
Shan Dan felt overjoyed.
He clearly understood that of the three princes within the Jiao Yun Clan, the second prince had already become a Ruler! The eldest prince had also obtained many benefits since he was the firstborn. Even though he was still a Paragon, he had a large number of experts following him–much more than the third prince.
Thus, within the Jiao Yun Clan, the third prince was the worst off! He was also in great need of people. Paragons were the most important combat forces he could have.
Shan Dan brought Xue Ying along and set off on his warship.
‘Such speed.’ Xue Ying felt dumbstruck as he watched the vessel speed along, ‘Even though it cannot match up with my Void Evasive Maneuver, it is faster than the time-space travel of most Paragons by more than ten times.’
Shan Dan pointed forward enthusiastically. Through the warship, they could see a beige-colored planet in the distance. “Third Highness is currently staying there in a cultivation retreat. Many of his protectors are also temporarily staying on this planet for his protection. I’ve already mentioned your matter to His Highness, so let’s hurry up and pay him a visit.”
Upon saying that, he kept his warship, before leading Xue Ying towards the beige planet.
