Chapter 1160 – Slaughtering Devils
Sky-Rending Great Paragon softly nodded. He laughed: “I can understand your reason for killing Black Sovereign King. But why are you risking your life just to save the commoners in the remaining cities? Even though there are trillions of them, compared to the population in the entire Realm Heart Great Land, it is quite a pitiful number. As long as it doesn’t affect the reproduction and multiplication of creatures in the world, there is no need to put your life at risk like this time. Even after killing Black Sovereign King, you chose to save them and risked your life being captured by Eternal Night Primogenitor. Fortunately, your avatar dissipated quick enough. Otherwise, once you were captured, your identity would be revealed. Are you confident of keeping the ‘Void Fire Lotus Flower’ with you once you enter a direct conflict with Eternal Night Primogenitor?”
Surviving and preserving the weapon were two different concepts.
Reaching the level of Xue Ying, unparalleled existences could not kill him when he concealed nine avatars in other Origin Worlds.
But the avatar carrying the weapon was the most important. Once it was killed and the treasure was taken, he would become greatly weakened!
Even though ‘Southern Cloud King’ was powerful, he still remained in the capital to maintain his most powerful state! If he chose to leave the capital, without the augmentation from the capital, he would become greatly weakened.
“Slightly confident.” Xue Ying chuckled. He was quite humble.
“Oh?” Sky-Rending Great Paragon looked at Xue Ying. He felt rueful in his heart as he actually watched the development of ‘Ying Shan Xue Ying’! From the identity as an Honored Guest at the Primal Chaos Realm participating in the Competition between the Three Clans in the Summer Wind Ancient Nation, Xue Ying had grown so much that he could kill a Paragon Master, ‘Black Sovereign King’, in a short period of time. Currently, he should have the confidence of surviving before unparalleled existences. His strength should have reached the level of he, Sky-Rending and Fuy.
And the number of experts at this level did not surpass the numbers counted with two hands in the entire Realm Heart Great Land.
“Don’t become overly confident.” Sky-Rending Great Paragon still reminded him, “Unparalleled existences rely on supreme-graded secret treasures to unleash power at the supreme level. Even if you are stronger, your avatars could still be killed if the enemy could target your flaws, causing you to lose your treasures. Hence, it is better to remain prudent! It isn’t worth risking your life for the sake of civilians living in some small cities.
“Those cities aren’t worth mentioning when speaking about the Realm Heart Great Land as a whole.” Xue Ying answered, “But to the civilians living in those cities, their deaths meant an end to their life. It doesn’t matter much even if the world is bigger.”
“The path of cultivation.” Xue Ying continued, “Is all about tempering oneself between life and death. So what if I die? The Realm Heart Great Land is endless, and it is impossible for me to take care of the countless deaths happening every single moment. But what happened earlier with the 19 cities… where a one-off large-scale massacre event resulted in the death of trillions of beings would no longer be a tempering for the cultivators in the path of cultivation. Instead, it is a sin! Experts were once weak. When they were weak, they would still fall if they met an expert who chose to slaughter them. Once they became stronger, they would treat the weak as ants. They would not blink their eyes even after killing a trillion beings. Such cultivators were no longer orthodox. Instead, they have turned into devils.”
“And devils must be killed.” Xue Ying coldly stated.
Sky-Rending Great Paragon was slightly stunned.
He could feel that unshakable iron will that was as sharp as a blade! To kill all devils!
Many experts like Sky-Rending Great Paragon did not really care about the weak. But they would not wilfully massacre the weak. Nonetheless, hearing the firm declaration by Xue Ying made his heart palpitate slightly.
“Do you know you would offend many experts if you chose to proceed down this path?” Sky-Rending Great Paragon replied.
“It is just that I am not too willing to see large-scale massacres. And I’ll only offend some devils. Naturally, I am currently too weak. If I had reached the level of ‘Yuan’, I would have already redefined the laws in the Realm Heart Great Land.” Xue Ying said. With great power comes great responsibility.
When he was weak, he could tolerate and watch as things happen. But as he gradually grew stronger, he would naturally want to change the way things work. Reaching where he currently stood, there were still quite many who were stronger than Xue Ying in Realm Heart Great Land. He could only say–he was confident of surviving before any unparalleled existences!
And since he was confident of protecting himself, he would naturally begin initializing some of his plans.
My Heart as the World. Once his Dao Heart was fixed, nobody could shake it!
“Then you must be careful.” Sky-Rending Great Paragon sighed.
“Rest assured. I am not foolish.” Xue Ying chuckled.
Sky-Rending Great Paragon slightly nodded. Looking at this white-robed young man before him, he could vaguely guess that in the near future, this white-robed young man would incur a large round of ‘slaughtering of devils’ in the Realm Heart Great Land. He really wondered where this absolute genius from the Southern Cloud Nation would reach!
After killing Black Sovereign King and saving those cities.
Xue Ying brought along the main avatar that had the Void Fire Lotus Flower and continued traveling. This terrifying power could actually dispatch Heaven Ancient Union Master and Black Sovereign King. Those were experts from two drastically different sects. Hence, Xue Ying felt that the one controlling the strings behind should be very powerful. It’s just that no matter how he searched, he could not find any clues at all. Hence, Xue Ying chose to rely on the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion’s intelligence network.
Whenever a large-scale massacre or large-scale man-made disaster happened, Xue Ying ordered for the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion to pay notice to it and inform him at the first instance.
Being one of the top ten great religions in Realm Heart Great Land, the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion had permeated deeply across the Realm Heart Great Land. Hence, their way of intelligence collection was much more formidable than what he could achieve alone.
Shortly after giving the orders.
On the next day, a piece of intelligence came from the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.
“Dust Brahman King, when he first ruled a nation, he set down a statute stating that all civilians of the Dust Brahman Nation that did not become a Deity within 20 years of birth would be captured alive and sent to the ‘Dark Prison’. Civilians who do not become World Deities in 10,000 years would be captured alive and sent to the Dark Prison too! In the Dark Prison, only those who are outstanding would be let out. Few could ever come out from the Dark Prison alive. And according to what the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion knows, practically 99% of those sent to the Dark Prison were killed. The Dust Brahman King deliberately left behind a few fortunate survivors so as to force them and fight. Only the absolute minority that was outstanding would be released! This point was made to show the civilians that those who were outstanding had the chance of surviving in Dust Brahman Nation.”
The information was detailed.
As Xue Ying read through it, his expression became cold.
Humans that were born in Realm Heart Great Land were Transcendents! There were many who could become Deities within ’20 years’. But at the same time, close to half failed to do so as well.
As for the legislation stating ‘those who did not become World Deities in 10,000 years’, would see many more civilians being captured alive.
These two statutes…
Practically sent close to half of the newborns to be sent into the Dark Prison!
A nation actually sent half its civilians to the Dark Prison? And almost all of them were killed?
“Powerful clans have powerful bloodlines. Hence, disciples from these clans could easily achieve the ‘10,000 years World Deity’ legislation. This cruel law could not threaten the bigger clans. Instead, the weak could not resist. And that bit of hope where the civilians could possibly be released from the Dark Prison…” Xue Ying felt his killing intent soaring.
Such matters could be concealed from those of the lower level.
But the most apex Cosmos Gods in Realm Heart Great Land still knew about it.
“Dust Brahman King is an Honored Guest of one of the five ancestors in Myriad Realm Ancient Nation, ‘World Extermination God-Emperor’. Dust Brahman Nation also practically obeys the order of World Extermination God-Emperor.” Xue Ying could see this point and understood why the experts did not care about it.
Such matters were actually quite common.
For instance, in one of the four Black Devil Four Nations, ‘Fiery Zhao Nation’, that was the backyard of the Black Devil Great Lake. Once the time period was up, a Blood Sacrifice would ensue! And Black Devil Great Lake properly controlled the frequency of the Blood Sacrifice to prevent the goose that lay eggs from being killed!
But as the one leading the Black Devil Great Lake was ‘Yama Religion Master’, an existence that unparalleled existences could not kill, everyone was helpless about it too.
Those who dared commit such acts were either existences that unparalleled existences could not kill or that they had huge backings that were tough and low-profile.
“Dust Brahman Nation.” Xue Ying felt the killing intent soaring in his heart. His eyes were cold.
The cup in his hand smashed down on the table, frightening many of the attendants by the side.
“I require the most detailed information on Dust Brahman King and on the Dark Prison.” Xue Ying ordered. He had some understanding of the Dust Brahman King. But before acting, it was better for him to understand more.
The Southern Cloud Sacred Religion intelligence network soon passed down the latest and most detailed intelligence.
Xue Ying rapidly read through it. The more he read, the more incensed he got!
He even looked up and executed the Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique to observe that ‘Dark Prison’ in the Dust Brahman Nation. The Southern Cloud Sacred Religion intelligence network did not lie. Furthermore, the way they phrased the report was relatively mild. This Dark Prison was even more bloody and cruel.
“Dust Brahman King.” Xue Ying stood.
The attendants immediately came forward.
Xue Ying soon placed down the money for the dishes before leaving.
And the attendants were slightly bewildered as they sent that white-robed young man who emitted a Unity Realm aura with their eyes. They did not know that very soon, a Cosmos God would fall!
