Chapter 906: Star Convention
“The rules are as per usual for the Star Convention this time.” Blade Emperor indifferently swept his gaze across the other four figures, “The job now is for the five of us to nominate one person each. This person must obtain the approval of more than half the people present since he will be a genius cultivator representing our holy ground.”
The Star Convention.
That was a grand gathering hosted by both the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World and the Eastern Unicorn Sacred World. It would be held once every trillion years! Those who cultivated for less than a trillion years and had reached the Unity realm would be qualified to participate.
The reason why they hosted this…
Was to unearth the hidden talents from the vast sacred worlds. Even though the holy grounds would usually accept disciples as well, but firstly, the qualification threshold was high and secondly, the sacred worlds were honestly too vast. Many weaker cultivators would not have the opportunity to travel through the huge distance to reach where the holy grounds were. There were sometimes talented and outstanding cultivators amongst these people.
Like Swordmaster, he no longer had the chance of being groomed since he had reached the Primal Chaos realm within a single cosmos epoch in his hometown cosmos! By the time he entered the Great Void Heaven Temple, he was able to step into the Cosmos God realm after reading through many books.
There were many similar cases.
These geniuses that were scattered across the places would still be able to cultivate to the Unity realm despite not having good conditions and were not properly groomed. But if they were able to reach where they were, the moment they entered the holy grounds, it was likely that they would improve greatly! As for those who ‘cultivated for two trillion years yet could not reach the Unity realm’, despite having a poor cultivation environment, they were not qualified as geniuses and could not participate in the Star Convention!
There were two types of selection criteria in the Star Convention.
The first was competing using one’s strength and get ranked. This was showing one’s abilities through strength.
The other would be to get chosen by the five experts arranged by the convention. These experts would observe the cultivators, and they would then select those worthy of being nurtured.
After all, the convention was about unearthing talents. For instance, those who cultivated for ten billion years fighting against those who cultivated for a trillion years. Even if they were weaker, those who cultivated for ten billion years would have a higher potential.
And the selections of these unranked cultivators would be purely determined by the five nominated experts. As a result, these appointed experts held great power in their hands, and the five great holy grounds would have to select the right person with the approval from the majority of the Cosmos Gods.
“Haha, this brat General Hatchet has traveled to many places. I’ve asked him before, and he mentioned that he is willing to take on the role as a teacher of the Star Convention this time.” Devil Mountain Primogenitor was the biggest person present in the place. His body was covered in a pitch black outer shell. His eyes were blood red. “Everyone should have no objections right?”
“General Hatchet Palace Master?”
“Naturally I do not have any objections.”
“No objections here.”
“It is rare for him to come.”
Great Emperor Cloud Serpent, Void Primogenitor, Forefather Tian Yu, and Blade Emperor all smiled and nodded.
Few experts could cross the ninth level Star Pagoda within the six great holy grounds. In Great Void Heaven Temple, there was only the Primal Chaos Hall Master, and in the Primogenitor Island, there was only General Hatchet Palace Master alone! For those at the Primal Chaos realm expert to reach the ninth level Star Pagoda, the difficulty was not any less than a Unity realm expert crossing through the seventh level… they had to unleash a power close to that of Cosmos Gods at the Primal Chaos realm. Clearly, they would have to be more accomplished in certain aspects than even Cosmos Gods.
Even Cosmos Gods respected these Primal Chaos experts who could cross the ninth level Star Pagoda.
The Star Convention might be important, but to have General Hatchet Palace Master take on the role as one of the five teachers was rare too.
“This disciple Qing Qu of mine is also quite interested in becoming one of the teachers for the Star Convention this time.” Great Emperor Cloud Serpent said.
“Qing Qu? She is quite weak.” Blade Emperor frowned, “I would rather have another person come.”
“Qing Qu Island Master has quite a good reputation. She is at least fair.” Void Primogenitor added.
“Her judgment doesn’t seem good enough.” Forefather Tian Yu added.
“Change another.” Devil Mountain Primogenitor shook his head.
Three present out of the five had objected to it. Clearly, this person wasn’t chosen.
Qing Qu Island Master was a disciple of Great Emperor Cloud Serpent and was a Primal Chaos giant who specialized in sounds. Her strength was at the seventh level Star Pagoda.
Great Emperor Cloud Serpent was stunned momentarily before he continued helplessly, “Then Violet Slaughter Island Master will be it.”
“Mn.” Forefather Tian Yu nodded.
“Alright.” Devil Mountain Primogenitor was straightforward.
“Violet Slaughter Island Master is not bad.”
The nomination happened really quickly. Primogenitor Island recommended ‘General Hatchet Palace Master’, and Void God Palace recommended ‘Five Luster Serpent Ancestor’. Blade Emperor City recommended ‘General Heaven Light’, and Great Emperor Cloud Serpent recommended ‘Violet Slaughter Island Master’.
Of which, General Hatchet Palace Master was at the ninth level Star Pagoda strength, and the others were at the eighth level!
Usually, the teachers chosen for conventions would be at the eighth level Star Pagoda strength! This time for them to have ‘General Hatchet Palace Master’ participating in the convention was really rare.
“Tian Yu, who will be stepping forward for your Great Void Heaven Temple this time?” All of them were looking at Great Void Heaven Temple.
“I have someone in mind.” Forefather Tian Yu said, “But he might be weaker. Still, I find him to be quite appropriate.”
“Who is it?”
“Quickly tell us.”
“Why are you still acting mysterious at this time?” All of them were urging him on.
Forefather Tian Yu said, “The strongest Inner Hall Elder in my Great Void Heaven Temple… Dong Bo Xue Ying. He has killed eight Destruction Devils when trying to cross the seventh level Star Pagoda, and is only just a gap away from crossing it.”
“Dong Bo Xue Ying? A Unity realm expert?” Blade Emperor slightly frowned, “Isn’t he too weak? The Star Convention is a huge affair, and those who participated in it are all at the Unity realm. The five convention teachers have great authority, and can a Unity realm expert take on the responsibility? I find that he is lacking.”
“I think he is appropriate.” Devil Mountain Primogenitor’s huge body sat there. His blood-red eyes looked at Blade Emperor, “This Dong Bo Xue Ying has this power and is considered half a step into the seventh level Star Pagoda already. Talking about his understanding of the Unity realm, not even the Primal Chaos giants at the eighth level Star Pagoda strength could be better than him. His foresight is absolutely sufficient. Furthermore, it is said that he has only cultivated for a few tens of billions of years. Being a genius cultivator, he might be able to unearth some genius cultivator too.”
“Half step into the seventh level Star Pagoda? He has ultimately not succeeded in it!” Great Emperor Cloud Serpent shook his head, “If he could get through the seventh level with his Unity realm, then none would object. But he has ultimately not broken through it. He is quite lacking in the foundation when taking on the mantle as a teacher. There might be some Unity geniuses attending the Star Convention who seem to be deferential, but they would not respect Dong Bo Xue Ying deep in their hearts. Void Primogenitor, what do you think?”
Currently, there were two who disagreed with it–Blade Emperor and Great Emperor Cloud Serpent.
There were also two who agreed–Forefather Tian Yu and Devil Mountain Primogenitor.
The final decision would depend on Void Primogenitor!
“His foresight is sufficient. He has cultivated for quite a long time and understood quite enough of the various great cultivation systems. I find him qualified.” Void Primogenitor added. He would still be willing to help his own disciple’s disciple.
Great Emperor Cloud Serpent was stunned.
He got through?
“Alright. Since the majority has chosen him, then it’ll be decided.” Blade Emperor slightly frowned, “But I am afraid that there will be many who would not accept this outcome.”
“So what if they can’t accept this outcome which we decided upon?” Devil Mountain Primogenitor coldly snorted.
“Alright. The five teachers have been selected.” Blade Emperor nodded. He did not speak anymore. Even though he felt that it would create some dissent, the Star Convention would be held once every trillion years. Currently, they had hosted it many times, and this was merely a single convention. Since three of the five great holy grounds had decided upon it, then there was no reason to continue refuting it.
Thus, the name register of the five teachers responsible for the Star Convention this time was as followed–General Hatchet Palace Master, Violet Slaughter Island Master, Five Luster Serpent Ancestor, General Heaven Light, Dong Bo Xue Ying.
Forefather Tian Yu revealed a grin at this: ‘It is different when one cultivates and when one becomes a teacher. This would be a rare opportunity for that Dong Bo brat to temper himself.’ He paid great importance on Xue Ying. After all, he was one step into the seventh level Star Pagoda already. Forefather Tian Yu fought with all his strength to obtain this opportunity for Xue Ying since it would undoubtedly be helpful to his growth.
The news soon spread out.
Blade Emperor City.
Within a palace that was entirely gold, in the most dazzling palace hall.
A male was wearing gray robe seated cross-legged on a stone bed within a huge hall. His entire body was emitting a dim gold light as if he were a gold structure. Currently, he was looking downwards while describing some of his experiences on cultivation. Several other disciples were listening attentively below. He was General Heaven Light and had quite a high status within the Blade Emperor City.
General Heaven Light frowned.
He was informed about the five nominated teachers for the Star Convention this time. The reason why he took the initiative to attend was that he wanted to receive a disciple or two during this convention.
‘Someone at the Unity realm is actually being placed on the same level as us?’ The eyes of General Heaven Light held a strand of anger. Deep in his heart, the genius cultivators nominated by the two sacred worlds to attend such an important convention would be on the same level. Nevertheless, for a Unity realm expert to accept the position as a teacher that was placed on the same level as him and others made him feel unhappy. It’s a pity that this was chosen by the highest level–the Cosmos Gods, and he was not qualified to retort against it.
