Chapter 1360: The North Region Domain
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The North Region was vast, and it was ruled by the three overlords from the Purple Cloud Sect, Thunder Mountain, and the Golden Eagle Sect. Almost 80 percent of the territories were ruled by the three overlords, and the North Territory belonged to those who were among the 20 percent.
The North Territory could stand on its own, as it had no one eyeing it, since it was a quite the remote area. Also, the resources that it possessed were not attractive. Thus, the three overlords were not interested in it.
However, as the North Territory had been unified by the Mu Estate, it could no longer enjoy the same peace at it had it the past. When the Mu Estate first took over the Ancient Celestial Palace, not many people knew about it. After this piece of news became known to more people in the North Territory, the Purple Cloud Sect, Thunder Mountain, and the Golden Eagle soon became aware of it.
As the Ancient Celestial Palace used to control the Tianluo Continent, it was a great place for one to cultivate. If one could gain access to the Ancient Celestial Palace and cultivate within it, his strength would increase to an amazing level.
The Mu Estate was able to increase its strength in the North Territory within a year, which then allowed it attract many top powers. This was all mainly due to the influence of the Ancient Celestial Palace.
The Purple Cloud Sect, Thunder Mountain, and the Golden Eagle Mansion had been eyeing the Ancient Celestial Palace for quite a while. Specifically, they had been secretly looking for opportunities to take over the Mu Estate, so that they could get ahold of the Ancient Celestial Palace.
Southwest of North Region, in the North Region Domain.
This place was well-known throughout the entire North Region, as it was the intersection of the Purple Cloud Sect, Thunder Mountain, and the Golden Eagle Mansion. Due to its topographical location, whenever there was a North Region Assembly, they would hold it here.
The North Region Domain was bustling with people during this period. Almost 80 percent of the forces in the North Region had brought their top powers here.
A vast majestic spiritual energy filled the area with colorful rays of light. The spiritual energy fluctuations were so great, anyone who came to the North Region Domain for the first time would be overwhelmed by it.
Mu Chen was one of these newcomers. As he looked at the vast grassland area, he sensed multiple spiritual energies glittering like stars in the sky. He was immediately overwhelmed.
“Almost all of the top powers in the North Region are here,” Mu Chen exclaimed.
“The North Region Assembly had gathered for the contest over the North Region Overlord. It is a grand occasion, and no forces would want to miss it,” Mandela said.
Mu Chen nodded. He could sense several figures arriving continually from all directions.
“Did you see the marks on the people’s arms?” Mandela asked all of a sudden.
Mu Chen nodded. He had noticed that almost all of the forces that had come to the North Region Domain wore a special armband on their arms.
“Those who are wearing purple armbands are the men from the Purple Cloud Sect. Those in grey belong to Thunder Mountain, and those in gold armbands are from the Golden Eagle Mansion,” she explained.
She then added, “Only those who have the armbands of the three overlords are allowed into the North Region Domain. If other forces step into it, they are telling everyone that they have the intention to contend with the three overlords. When we do that, it will tough for us to move on.”
“Oh?” Will they try to stop us?” Mu Chen asked as he squinted his eyes.
“According to the rules in the North Region, if a new force wants to show that they have the capability to contend with the three overlords, the only way for them to do so is to fight their way through the border of the North Region Domain. As long as they can fight deep into the North Region Domain, where the battlefield of the three forces is located, the new force will then be allowed to contend with them,” she explained.
She then said, “Previously, two powerful forces appeared in the North Region and tried to become the new overlord, but after they stepped into the North Region Domain, they never came out again. After that, their forces dispersed…”
When Mu Chen heard this, he said, “That seems quite brutal…”
“In this world, the one with power calls the shots. If one is not powerful enough, but still eyes the position of overlord, he has to be prepared to be devoured.” Mandela stared at Mu Chen and asked, “Are you prepared for this? If we fail, we will end up like the two forces that went before us.”
Mu Chen smiled and turned around. The people who had followed him to the North Region Domain were basically the elites of the Mu Estate. Each of them had already stepped into the Earthly Sovereign level.
At this moment, all of the top powers of the Mu Estate were looking fervently at him. There were no signs of fear in their eyes, and their faces were all filled with enthusiasm.
“Follow me if you believe that I will bring you out alive.” Mu Chen smiled at the top powers of the Mu Estate, then waved his hand and took the lead to dash toward the North Region Domain, while flying at a low altitude.
Ling Xi, Long Xiang, and Jiang Long immediately caught up with him. The top powers from the Mu Estate took a look at the top powers from the other forces in the North Region Domain. As compared to the other forces, their number seemed quite insignificant.
However, as they looked at Mu Chen, who was moving steadily before them, they suddenly felt a strong sense of confidence. They then turned into shadows and shot out.
When Mandela saw this scene, she could not help but smile. Mu Chen had become the emotional anchor for the Mu Estate. If they won this battle, no one would be able to take Mu Chen’s position as the Estate Master away from him. She stepped out with a smile and appeared behind Mu Chen.
The top powers from the Mu Estate turned into shadows and flew at a low altitude into the North Region Domain. The moment they entered the North Region Domain, many pairs of sharp eyes in the surrounding area looked at them, while many people commented on their arrival…
“Hohoho, it is the men from the Mu Estate!”
“These young and inexperienced people are indeed fearless. They only have a handful of people, yet they have the audacity to come to the North Region Domain. I dare to bet that before they can enter deep into the Domain, all of them will be killed.”
“The one at the forefront should be the Estate Master. He is indeed young. It is no wonder that he is so presumptuous.”
“Too bad. After today, he will become a pile of bones in the North Region Domain…”
After the top powers barged into the North Region Domain, many people started to whisper among themselves. Some of them were looking at them with sympathy, while others mocked them.
Apparently, they did not think too highly of the Mu Estate. After all, this had happened before, but those people who had the audacity to challenge the three overlords had all ended up being killed.
It required great courage to move on with so many pairs of sympathetic eyes looking at them. Many top powers from the Mu Estate felt uneasy being stared at, and they followed closely behind Mu Chen, who was moving along steadily.
Mu Chen was at the forefront of his team and he looked calm. He moved forward with a straight face and was unaffected by the constant remarks that were being made by the onlookers that came to his ears.
He fixed his gaze deep into the North Region Domain. In the entire area, he could only feel three powerful spiritual energy fluctuations that were looming deep in the Domain. The spiritual energy fluctuations were way beyond those of the Complete Earthly Sovereigns.
“Stop where you are!” A voice suddenly resounded in front of Mu Chen as he was looking deep into the North Region Domain.
In the next instant, several figures shot up into the sky and blocked Mu Chen’s group. Strong spiritual energy fluctuations exuded from the figures, and he could see that they had purple armbands around their arms.
Apparently, these were the men from the Purple Cloud Sect. Almost half of them had reached the Upper Earthly Sovereign level and the two people who were at the forefront of the group were Complete Earthly Sovereigns.
It was apparent that the Purple Cloud Sect hated the Mu Estate so much, they had instructed those top powers who had submitted themselves to the Purple Cloud Sect to deal with the Mu Estate directly. In the face of such an impediment, Mu Chen remained expressionless and did not slow down.
“How dare you bunch of useless people hinder our Little Lord? Get out of the way!” Long Xiang shouted coldly.
He then shot out suddenly toward the group of people, exuding a horrifying power that was beyond description. As the wind blast of his fist passed through them, no one was able to fend it off.
“You are so presumptuous!” The two Complete Earthly Sovereigns said in unison. They were furious and tried to stop Long Xiang.
Just as they were about to take action, a vast spiritual energy fluctuation suddenly swirled out from the sky. A huge spiritual array came down from the heavens and engulfed them within it. The spiritual energy gathered to form a windstorm and raged toward the two Complete Earthly Sovereigns, causing them to freeze.
Bang! Bang! Bang!
In just a short while, the top powers from the Purple Cloud Sect had been totally defeated. Everyone was seriously injured by Long Xiang.
Mu Chen did not even look at these people, but simply moved on with his hand tucked behind his back, leaving the rest of the people looking at him in astonishment. Mu Chen fixed his gaze deep into the North Region Domain. Although there were many top powers from the three overlords around him, they did not have the abilities to stop him.
They might have been able to do so if the three overlords had stopped him personally. But, in any case, Mu Chen would make the Mu Estate the North Region Overlord this day. He had to do it, not only for the top powers who had put their trust in him and followed him, but also to procure the resources that he would need for his future cultivation.
This was why Mu Chen was determined to have the position of the North Region Overlord!
