Chapter 859: This is…!!
Translator: Noodletown Translations Editor: Noodletown Translations
– At the Cultivator Alliance Artifact Research Association –
The threat of god-level monsters plunged the entirety of Half City and even the nearby cities and factions into a panic.
This wasn’t something that could be easily solved. This was a catastrophe that no ordinary cultivators could withstand.
“The presence… is still growing! It’s getting stronger and stronger!”
“How far is it now?!”
“We can’t let it get close to the cities!” Duan Yue, the Chief Artifact Master of the Cultivator Alliance Artifact Research Association, was the cultivator who had led the project of making a mimic of Heavenly Mirror. He yelled, “No… we can’t let it get within 50 kilometers of any city!”
“Inform all the faction masters! Move the Vital Magnetic Wind Thunder Battleships!” Vital Magnetic Wind Thunder Battleships were spiritual ships that were equipped with the spiritual artifacts of war, which were mimics of railguns. In the battle with the Judgement Godly Palace, the mimicked railguns had knocked over their enemy’s destructive magic missile cannons.
Now, they had improved this weapon and equipped every cultivation faction with them.
“Half City Vital Magnetic Wind Thunder Battleships are on the move; the factions need some time to move theirs!”
“How long?!” Duan Yue asked.
“From several hours to three days.”
“Can’t they use the teleportation array…” Duan Yue paused and killed this stupid idea since the current teleportation array technology couldn’t transport things that were as big as the Vital Magnetic Wind Thunder Battleships.
“The presence is still growing and will probably reach Half City and other nearby cities in one day!”
“It’s too late!” Duan Yue gritted his teeth and said, “Go… ask for reinforcements from other places!”
At this moment, Ning Bi began her new day in the Half City Shop. As the main healer in Team Two of the first raid group of Anton, she couldn’t vacate her post.
Besides, she hadn’t played her alt Demonbane and Archmage accounts yet.
Having just finished one account, she put down the virtual reality headset and lounged on the computer chair to rest.
“Big… big trouble!” At this moment, a woman who managed the business for Ning Bi hurried to her side and whispered, “Mistress, demons have been detected in the Yellow Spring Sea, and the degree of danger is god-level! It’s very possible that they will threaten Half City.”
“What?!” Ning Bi’s face darkened, knowing that threats on this level were hard to deal with. It would be fine if they were ordinary monsters, but demons from the Yellow Spring Sea…
Everyone knew how fierce and powerful they were.
[I probably can’t join the party for the raid for now.] At this moment, Ning Bu posted the message in the group chat with a grim expression.
[I have three alt accounts to go!]
[I have seven!] Gabriel yelled.
[They seem to have trouble.] Gu Tingyun replied. [A god-level demon came close to Half City.]
[What?!] Everyone was shocked, wondering how such a monster would appear suddenly…
[How come such a demon appeared?!]
[Do you know its background?]
[Not yet,] Ning Bi said.
At this moment, everyone felt the grim atmosphere.
[I plan to go and check it out.] Gu Tingyun said, [What are your plans?]
[It’s a big issue, and I can’t stay out of it.] Nalan Hongwu said, [I’ll go and see what demon it is!]
– In Half City –
High ocean waves surged up and viciously crashed against the tall cliff of Half City. More than ten spiritual ships slowly flew out like a fleet in the sky.
Today, the sky above the surrounding sea area was unusually clear with a few puffy clouds floating in the bright blue sky peacefully.
It didn’t look like a catastrophe was about to strike.
These spiritual ships were very fast. The ocean water gradually turned from dark-blue to turbid-yellow. While reflecting the sunlight on the surface, the sea looked peaceful except for a few floating sea weeds.
But only the Half City cultivators who had lived here for a long time knew that this sea area was a dangerous place that few cultivators were willing to step into.
At this moment, they found…
“The sea water… seems to be flowing…?”
All the ocean water seemed to dim without a reason. A shadow engulfed the bottom of the sea, and even the shadows the spiritual ships cast on the sea were indistinguishable.
It looked as if an extremely huge creature was hovering overhead.
But when they looked up, they saw nothing. Although they knew that this shadow came from the bottom of the ocean, the creepy feeling sent chills down their spines.
“Be careful! There’s something at the bottom of the sea!” Even Nalan Hongwu looked grim.
– At this moment, at the bottom of Yellow Spring Sea –
A voice seemed to rise from the extremely gloomy darkness, “Finally… we’re here!”
“Is this the presence of the mortal world…?!”
“There are humans here?” It seemed to sense over ten spiritual ships coming from all directions.
“Let’s go up!” the voice seemed to come from the depths of Nine-Fold Darkness.
Immediately, the shadows at the bottom of the ocean grew darker and deeper. At this moment, someone exclaimed as a huge mountain seemed to rise from the turbid yellow water.
Then, the ‘huge mountain’ grew larger and wider until it filled the entire sea area. It looked as if a huge continent was slowly rising from the sea!
At the sight of this huge horrifying monster, almost everyone stepped back in horror with their mouths opening wide.
Almost no one had ever seen such a huge and horrifying monster.
Its head rose from the sea, looking like a huge mountain peak rising into the clouds!
“Roar-!” The earth-shaking hoarse roar almost shattered people’s eardrums. When its giant black mouth opened, it sucked in all the spiritual essence from this region like a whale sucking in water.
Like an extremely huge black hole, it looked as if it would devour everything in the world!
“Be careful, everyone!”
Alarmed yells and curses rose immediately.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Streaks of spiritual light lit up one by one but afflicted almost no damage to the horrifying monster.
At this moment, the extremely huge monster stopped absorbing spiritual essence.
Then, a figure flew out from the mouth of the huge turtle.
Looking at the over-confident humans and the ships that were as small as the debris on the ground, it laughed as if it was mocking their over-confidence.
The attacks on this scale were weaker than tickling to the monster.
“Is this the god-level monster…?!” Duan Yue’s face darkened as he warned other people around him. “Be careful!”
Emitting a presence that was as huge as an ocean, the monster was as big as an enormous island. On its pitch-black back were ugly spikes. This monster wasn’t something that humans could block.
“This… This is?!” The group led by Nalan Hongwu exchanged a look and saw the astonishment in each other’s eyes. “This is-!!”
“Yes. This is it.” Duan Yue and the faction masters looked grimmer. “You guys must be careful. This…”
“Cackle-! I’m the messenger of the Nine-Fold Darkness Demonic General. It’s your honor that we are borrowing the path in the mortal world. Are you ready to sacrifice yourselves to us?!”
