Chapter 656: Black-armored Demon God
As the battles continued in the Soul Tomb, tens of millions of kilometers away, in the Untraversable Sea…
On the surface of the calm but dead silent Untraversable Sea, seven pure black mountains stood erect at the end of the vast nothingness.
These seven mountains were the shape of humans.
The middle mountain was the shape of a man wearing black battle armor with a lance in his hands.
Instead of calling it a mountain, it was better to describe it as a sculpture.
Silver starlight fell from the sky. Although it was still daytime in the Tian Yuan world, there was perennial darkness in this area where the seven divine mountains stood.
Starlight seemed to pool together like water, before flowing into the middle mountain.
And while the mountain’s runic patterns was being illuminated by the starlight, the black-armored god of war was receiving a baptism of starlight, becoming ever clearer.
These seven mountains were the seven Demon Disciples from tens of millions of years ago.
As for the middle mountain, if Yi Yun was here, he would immediately recognize the lance-wielding black-armored warrior as the one who fought the Azure Yang Lord in a video disk array that he saw in the God Advent Tower more than seven years ago.
In the video projection, the Azure Yang Lord’s astounding sword attack had given Yi Yun a lot of insights.
As for the black-armored warrior, although he had been defeated by the Azure Yang Lord, his mightiness left a deep impression on Yi Yun.
Today, a group of black-robed people came to the vicinity of where the black-armored warrior divine mountains stood.
On their robes, there was a blood moon embroidered on their chests.
They were Blood Moon’s Reincarnators, and they were the upper echelons of Blood Moon as well.
The person leading them had a flaming scar on his forehead. He was a first generation Blood Moon member, and he was also the Martial Alliance’s Alliance Leader, and he was currently the person with executive control over Blood Moon!
There were a total of thirteen people. At that moment, they looked solemnly at the black-armored warrior who had already fully-actualized.
“If this carries on, the Black-armored Demon God will immediately awaken… ” A Reincarnator said as he looked at the Black-armored Demon God’s sculpture.
Tens of millions of years ago, the seven Demon Disciples were sealed by the Azure Yang Lord. But with the immense amount of time, the Heaven Earth powers and the energy from the cosmos were constantly weakening the seals. Furthermore, seven years ago, when the Eye of Destruction appeared beneath the eternal whirlpool, the stirring of the Eye of Destruction sped up the Black-armored Demon God’s awakening.
The Black-armored Demon God’s awakening was long planned by the upper echelons of Blood Moon, and it was something they looked forward to. However… now was not the time.
“Set up an array formation to seal the Black-armored Demon God’s powers. Let him sleep for a period of time… ” The man with the flaming scar on his forehead said.
His words stunned a few Reincarnators who had existed for less than a million years. “Seal the Black-armored Demon God’s consciousness? Why… ?”
Over all these years, Blood Moon had been laying dormant in the Tian Yuan world. They had built up the Yin specters and developed the Reincarnators, all for this day. Now with the Black-armored Demon God about to awaken, everything would be set in place once he did so. The Desolate race was definitely no match for the Black-armored Demon God.
But now… the Alliance Leader had given the command to temporarily seal the Black-armored Demon God’s consciousness?
And the few people standing beside the Alliance Leader did not seem surprised at the command, as if everything was only right and proper. It baffled some of the Reincarnators though.
“Wouldn’t the Black-armored Demon God’s awakening speed up the Divine Master’s return to this world?”
Someone could not help but ask. Blood Moon was an organization, and also a religion. As for the Blood Moon congregation’s addressing of “Divine Master”, it was the “God” of Blood Moon’s religion.
“Awaken?” The man with the flaming scar shook his head and he did not give an explanation.
But a thin man beside him smiled and said, “The Divine Master has never broken the seal open since ancient times. Tens of millions of years ago, He had been sealed by Jian Qingyang once again. It is not so simple for the Divine Master to completely awaken and break the shackles of His confinement.”
“Besides… Why would we invite a God here to worship Him, and willingly be His slave?”
The moment the thin man said those words, it stunned the everyone else.
What did this mean?
The thin man carried on. “Our Blood Moon organization was established by the seven Demon Disciples, tens of millions of years ago. Its establishment was just to resist Jian Qingyang and the Desolate race army.”
“To put it bluntly, us as Blood Moon are just the Demon Disciples’ tools. Blood Moon of the past was far more powerful than it is now. But after the war with the Desolate race and the long passage of time, the Blood Moon has become what it is now. There are only Reincarnators and Yin specters, continuing on through endless sleeping… ”
“Do you still think it’s not enough being their tools? Now, the Eye of Destruction is still sealed, and the seven Demon Disciples are asleep, yet you want to awaken them to carry on becoming their tools? Or do you want to establish a new order, and become the overlords of this world yourselves?”
The thin man’s words quaked the hearts of the Reincarnators. Become the overlords of this world themselves?
They had never thought so far ahead, but if they gave it careful thought, Blood Moon’s purpose may have continued on for tens of millions of years, and they knew of Blood Moon’s past and mission. But over the million years of reincarnation, they had never heard Blood Moon mention the revival of the seven Demon Disciples or allowing the Divine Master to escape from the seal.
It appeared as if the upper echelons of the Blood Moon had ulterior ambitions a long time ago.
Indeed, they were just chess pieces used tens of millions of years ago after all. The Eye of Destruction was not a benefactor of theirs, so why should they render any service to Him?
“That seal… ” Someone asked anxiously.
They did not know how secure the seal in the eternal whirlpool was. If the Divine Master could awaken by Himself, they would be doomed.
With that, the man with the flaming scar said, “Tens of millions of years ago, the seven Demon Disciples underestimated Jian Qingyang. The Divine Master had just awoken back then, and he was still restrained by the ancient seal. Yet, He attracted Jian Qingyang and that woman, who dealt a serious blow to the Divine Master after entering the eternal whirlpool together. In addition to the ancient seal, the Divine Master’s consciousness was injured… Seven years ago, the Divine Master’s projection appearance was just a stimulative reflex from the opening of the Great Empress mystic realm…”
“Now, this is the moment I have been waiting for. If there is a God in this world, it is sufficient for Him to be done by us.” As the man with the flaming scar spoke, his eyes flickered with ambition.
Tens of millions of years ago, when the seven Demon Disciples had entered their slumber, and the Eye of Destruction was being sealed, he had gained control of Blood Moon. But he no longer had the plans on reviving the seven Demon Disciples.
He wanted immense supreme power for himself, a position to dictate everything!
Now, the opportunity was here.
And in the tens of millions of years, the Black-armored Demon God that was about to awaken from the tempering of starlight, would become an important part of his plan.
To dominate this world required absolute power.
He did not want to revive the Demon Disciples, he wanted to become a Demon Disciple himself, becoming just as powerful as the Demon Disciples were tens of millions of years ago.
He had used this long period of time to nurture and empower many Yin specters.
With the Yin specters’ powerful souls and the combined powers of the Yin specters, he could set up an array formation to wipe out the Black-armored Demon God’s consciousness that had not fully awoken. Then, everything would be perfect and flawless.
