Chapter 784: Hope Arrives
Xue Ying relied on the survival talisman and void maneuver. Compared to the other void creatures, he was able to display the techniques so stealthily that it felt as if he were one with the void. The primal chaos void land was only this big, and in an instance, Xue Ying was able to reach the outer perimeters of the chain of palaces.
“Treasure spirit, you can probe through the palaces now right?” Xue Ying asked. He did not dare to barge in the place when he did not know anything about the enemies.
“It is enough. The entire chain of palaces is within my covered region.” The treasure spirit transmitted over, “Wu, fortunately, you did not barge in. There are a total of three Void God void creatures within the chain of palaces.”
“Three Void Gods?” Xue Ying felt a twitch in his heart.
“The three of them is discussing your matter currently. I am attentively listening to them now.” The treasure spirit turned silent for a moment before replying, “Oh Master, it was the Second Commander who fought with you earlier! And he should be ranked second in terms of power. The Third Commander and Second Commander are closer in terms of strength. The Great Commander’s soul is much stronger, but he should still be an ordinary Void God!”
Xue Ying turned taciturn as he contemplated.
“The Great Commander seems to be very concerned with your origin. He has already sent an order to investigate the treasures which you left behind.” The Black Gourd treasure spirit answered.
“He is still quite careful.” Xue Ying shook his head with a chuckle, “Have you investigated what this primal chaos land is called?”
Only by knowing its name would he know where this primal chaos void land is and which part it was on the void map.
“They did not discuss that. There are all sorts of structures and items within the chain of palaces, but we aren’t able to deduce the name of this primal chaos void still.” The treasure spirit helplessly said, “Oh right, Master, these three commanders seem to devour several living beings. I can deduce that they should be the crudest ‘devour class’ cultivation system.”
“Devour class?” There was a faint strand of indignance appearing in the eyes of Xue Ying.
Of the five sacred worlds, across the many cosmoses in the vast primal chaos void, there were all sorts of cultivation systems. But there were not many which could lead to the final stages of cultivation!
After all, a cultivation system that could reach the final realm required firstly for there to be seniors who could prove that it was achievable. And in the history, there were so few ‘Cosmos Gods’ that it felt pitiful. Naturally, there were also very few cultivation systems which proceeded on to the final stages of cultivation. Of which the simplest system to achieve this was the ‘devour’ class system.
The devour class system was all about devouring everything into one’s body! They would devour all sorts of living beings and souls. They could even devour an entire cosmos!
There were two crucial points about this system. One was that the more complex the devour technique, the more different it was in devouring ordinary living beings and devouring Void God weapons–one had to obtain different techniques for devouring different objects!
And the other crucial point was that one must be able to absorb and convert the devoured into his own body. This absorption cultivation technique was also different in different realms.
But the most fundamental cultivation techniques could lead directly to the ‘Void God Unity realm’. The devour class technique was extremely easy to obtain. Because the creator of the devour class system ‘World Ancestor’ had taken the initiative to publicize it. But to reach the ‘Primal Chaos realm’, they had to depend on the creator before they could obtain more profound techniques.
The easiest way to devour and breakthrough would be unquestionably, to devour other cultivators! Thus, this system had produced many devils that wantonly devoured others. It also incited the fury of the public.
But ‘World Ancestor’ was too powerful.
He was faintly ranked in the top three amongst the existences who reached the final realm. His status could not be moved. Thus, the ‘devour class’ system did not die off. Instead, more and more cultivated this system, especially the ordinary ‘void creatures’.
“The strong feasts on the weak.” Xue Ying shook his head. Still, that level of existences at the final stage of cultivation was still too far off for him. But his fortune was not bad since the Great Void Heaven Temple he was part of was very powerful. Currently, there were two existences at the final stage of cultivation, Forefather Tian Yu and Lake Heart Island Swordmaster protecting it. No matter where reporting the name of the temple sufficed to shock others.
“I still hoped for a miracle.” After serving the void creatures, a white-haired teenager attendant sat inside his small courtyard. His heart was, however, filled with agony.
“When will these days last until?” The white-haired teenager attendant muttered to himself. The expression on his face remained calm though. He was afraid that the void creature would discover his expression in the dark.
Suddenly, the space beside distorted. A black-robed teenager appeared in front of him.
The white-haired attendant looked at this person with slight astonishment: “You, you… aren’t you…” The black-robed teenager was none other than the Ruler expert who had fought with the void creatures.
“You thought I genuinely died?” Xue Ying joked, “That is just a way to fool those idiots. The reality here has fused into an illusory world so the void creature which you serve will not be able to discover our existences.”
That void creature was at the Ruler realm, albeit his grasp of the realm was terrible. Xue Ying’s attainment in the Dao of Mirage made it easy for him to deceive a Ruler realm Void creature.
“Oh.” The white-haired teenager nodded a few times. At the same time, his eyes emitted light. He saw hope. He was not afraid that this person was lying to him since their current statuses were slaves and food for the void creatures. Naturally, the void creatures would disdain to even lie to them.
“Let me ask you.” Xue Ying said, “What is the name of this primal chaos void land?”
“What is it called?” The white-haired teenager was startled momentarily before shaking his head, “I do not know. I have never left this place and do not know what the primal chaos void land we are living on… is called in the outside world.”
Xue Ying frowned, “You have never heard of the seniors of your race say that before?”
According to his investigation of the void… the cultivators in the entire primal chaos void land still maintained their freedom. The strongest was only at the Paragon realm! As for the ‘True God Rulers’, he had discovered that they were all sealed and imprisoned.
“I’ve never heard of it before.” The white-haired teenager shook his head. Seeing the frown of this black-robed teenager in front of him, he could not help but say, “I might not know, but the Rulers should know.”
“Nevertheless, the Rulers are all imprisoned, and I do not know where they are locked in.” The white-haired teenager helplessly said.
“The Rulers should know?” Xue Ying lightly nodded.
He then chatted with this white-haired teenager about many matters. Only then did he add in at the end, “Endure for a little longer. I’ll definitely save all of you out, but I’ll need some time.”
“We can wait; we are definitely able to wait.” Hearing the promise of this person in front of him, the white-haired teenager felt like a drowning man hugging onto a piece of log. He hurriedly nodded and acknowledged. As long as there was a strand of hope… they would definitely grab it firmly.
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded. His figure soon disappeared altogether.
The white-haired teenager felt as if he were dreaming. But his expression regained its usual calm swiftly. He remained low-profile and continued doing his tasks as an attendant. But deep in his heart, there was already a flame burning brightly. This was the fire of hope!
Within a cold prison.
There was a male with messy black hair being shackled and restricted. Even his backbone was bound and locked to the prison. His soul was sealed too. There were many seals on the shackles he was constrained in, ensuring that his power was completely sealed.
His eyes were bleak. He had lived for far too long in these days of darkness without light.
“Why, why would it be like this?”
“Everything seems perfectly well with our lives on this primal chaos void land. Why would so many void creatures suddenly invade us?”
“Where are the other powerful cultivators? Why did they let all these happen without doing anything?”
The male with messy black hair only had despair in his eyes.
According to his knowledge, void creatures would usually not dare to conduct such an act because they would be quickly discovered the moment they remained for a little longer. There would be powerful cultivators descending to kill these void creatures. However, this group of void creatures had arrived for far too long and never had there been any cultivators passing by asking them what happened. Furthermore, he understood that it was not just his hometown primal chaos land that was occupied. The void creatures had similarly occupied many surrounding regions.
“Becoming their food, acting like slaves for them and when they want to eat us, they will eat us?” The male with messy black hair felt endless sorrow, “Even I as a Ruler has been forced to become a battle reward to a void creature.”
The majority of the Rulers had been served as food reserves for the three commanders.
There was only an exception. Rulers would be granted to subordinates who had successfully significantly contributed, and this messy-haired male was one of them.
“Who will come and save us?”
“When will these days ever end?” The male with messy black hair was filled with despair in his heart.
The male with messy black hair suddenly felt the void warping in front of his eyes. A figure had appeared. He was a black-robed teenager. This male with messy black hair felt both stunned and shocked. He tried his best to blink his eyes, and there was indeed a black-robed teenager appearing within the prison and was currently standing in front of him.
“You can feel rest assured. Nobody will know what exactly is happening here.” Xue Ying chuckled.
“Are you here to save us? To save this primal chaos land?” The male with messy black hair hurriedly asked.
“I’ll try my best. If nothing unforeseen happens, I have 80-90% confidence in saving you all.” Xue Ying answered.
The male with messy black hair felt light lighting up in his eyes.
“Do you know what this primal chaos land is called?” Xue Ying asked.
“I know.” The male with messy black hair immediately answered, “I’ve heard the monarch mention it before. This is known as the Chen Tie Great Land.”
