2742 Reincarnation Gold Jade!
“Spring, where are the remnants of Tower Canon? They should contain a resource that I urgently require. I need to search for these resources in the vestiges of Tower Canon.”
Spring pointed southwest.
“If you head in this direction, you will eventually be able to see an island in the sea. There is a castle on the island. The entire island can be considered Tower Canon’s old nest!
“However, there is more to the island than what meets the eye. The bottom of the island has been altered to be linked to the ley lines. Tower Canon has injected the roots of a Class 3 world’s dimensional world into this Class 1 world.
“The Class 3 world’s dimensional world’s roots continue to affect this Class 1 world even after it was promoted to Class 2. It’s clear that Tower Canon has been nourishing this Class 3 world’s dimensional world’s roots.
“After you’ve collected all of the Secrets of the Dead and combined them into tomes, you will probably be able to control and manipulate the dead world’s roots. At that point, you’ll be able to use the dead world’s roots to specifically nurture a type of dead dimensional lifeform.”
Lin Yuan nodded.
Keira had already told him that, just not in this much detail.
There was no question that Lin Yuan was going to take control of the dead world’s roots. He already knew that the dead world and main world’s root energies repelled each other, causing the bond between the two world’s roots to be tenuous.
Hence, if Lin Yuan could use the dead world’s roots to nurture a special dead dimensional lifeform, he would be able to avoid unnecessary waste!
The dead spirits crisis brought disaster to the main world. Yet, Lin Yuan did not truly detest these lifeforms. Rather, the battles against the dead spirits allowed Lin Yuan to see the strength of these lifeforms.
Lin Yuan was very willing to learn about all types of lifeforms.
However, Lin Yuan still did not know which type of dead spirit he was going to strengthen with the dead world’s roots.
Keira had captured almost every type of dead dimensional lifeform and analyzed their roots.
If Lin Yuan sought Keira’s opinion, she would definitely be able to give him an answer he was satisfied with.
He summoned the Kill Food Sky Butterfly and flew southwest where Spring had pointed towards.
Meanwhile, in Epoch God Palace…
A handsome young man and elderly man began trembling after listening to what the girl in front of them said. Tears sprang to both of their eyes.
“Summer, are you sure that your information is sound?”
When she heard what the elderly man said, Summer knew that Winter was overwhelmed with surprised delight. Otherwise, he would never doubt her!
Moreover, she would never falsify information regarding Lord Saint!
Although she was being doubted, Summer understood how Autumn and Winter were feeling.
She and Spring had slowly confirmed Lin Yuan’s identity. Still, tears filled their eyes the moment they became certain.
What Autumn and Winter needed now was her affirmative answer.
Summer told Autumn and Winter with utmost seriousness, “It’s true that we’ve found Lord Saint. He is wearing Lord Totem God on his wrist. There’s no mistaking this! Spring is currently sticking by Lord Saint’s side to protect him. I only returned to let the two of you know about this.”
At this point, Summer turned to Autumn. “You previously came into contact with Tower Canon. It was Lord Saint’s enemy and has been completely wiped out. With Spring by Lord Saint’s side, no harm can come to him.
“Soon, I must return to the Startling Lines Continent to funnel the death aura in the ley lines, so I can’t stay for long.
“Autumn, it won’t be long before Spring brings Lord Saint back to Epoch God Palace so the Returning Saint Pool can enlighten his birth horoscope. Since you have nothing better to do, why don’t you help Winter to open the path to the Sky Beyond the Clouds?”
Neither Autumn nor Winter had any issues with Summer’s arrangement.
Both of them were wondering when Spring would be able to bring Lin Yuan back to Epoch God Palace. They badly wanted to stand in front of him and greet him.
They had waited for such a long time. But now that they knew they were about to meet him, they became impatient.
Summer did not stay in Epoch God Palace for long. She left for the Startling Lines Continent immediately after delivering the news to Autumn and Winter.
During her time in the Startling Lines Continent, redirecting the death aura in the ley lines, Summer observed Red Thorn and Silver Corona. She supplied them with pure death aura at a rate that matched their rate of absorption.
Additionally, Summer used her own methods to increase the purity of the death aura.
It would take a very long time for these two eight-winged fairies to evolve their bloodlines by absorbing death aura.
Summer decided to inform Lin Yuan of this when he went to Epoch God Palace.
Even if the two fairies were supplied with a large amount of death aura, they also needed to be supplied with a large amount of pure spirit qi in order to raise their chances of successfully evolving their bloodlines.
With Lin Yuan’s body, pure spirit qi was a common good.
Lin Yuan and Spring never stopped conversing during their journey. The more they spoke, the more comfortable they became with each other.
This made Spring feel as though she was receiving special favor.
For example, Lin Yuan had handed her a piece of roasted meat when he had his meal.
Spring was so thrilled that she did not know what to do with herself!
As Lin Yuan looked at the azure sea below him, he once again sensed vigorous signs of life.
Spring paused to sense the sea before saying, “Lord Saint, you should be able to sense that all the death aura has been drained from the ley lines below this sea. This means that we are very near to Tower Canon’s old nest!
“Although the Eight Pages of Tower Canon are dead and the Chanters under their control would have already died along with them, this does not mean that there are no more dangers in their old nest. If you need anything, you should leave it to the Afterlife Realm Demon or me!”
Lin Yuan nodded.
He had almost been assassinated by Crimson during their battle and did not see Tower Canon’s old nest as a safe place at all.
Lin Yuan had experience clearing out a faction’s treasure trove after conquering it. Each time, his harvest had been plentiful.
But Lin Yuan was really looking forward to clearing out Tower Canon’s old nest.
Standing on the Kill Food Sky Butterfly’s back, Lin Yuan could already make out the silhouette of the island.
There were various colored gems embedded on the surface of the island. Each one of these gems was considered priceless in the outside world. Yet, these fist-sized gems were scattered on the beach like worthless garbage. These gems would be excellent both as accessories or used in potions.
There was no reason for Lin Yuan to let these gems go to waste.
Lin Yuan instructed the Kill Food Sky Butterfly to land on the edge of the island, and the Source Sand’s main body appeared by his feet.
The Source Sand began rapidly generating sand. It produced Close Guard Sand that changed the environment of the ground under them, and the sand soon began spreading out underground.
The Source Sand was skilled at searching and gathering resources, so it collected all the gems on the ground.
In the blink of an eye, the Source Sand had covered the entire island.
Aside from these gems, the Source Sand did not collect anything else from this island.
As the Source Sand dug deeper, Lin Yuan noticed that the gems and sand were just for superficial appearances. After a depth of 30 meters, the Source Sand hit a rock layer that had been fortified. The rock extended deep under the island and probably reached the bottom of the sea.
Lin Yuan instructed the Source Sand to break this layer of rock. However, he realized that the Source Sand did not have the ability to do so.
After thinking for a moment, Lin Yuan decided to enter the castle first. He would investigate the space under the island later.
Spring clearly knew something about this and began explaining. “There are so many gems accumulated here because Tower Canon intentionally sent people out to gather these resources.
“Unlike lifeforms with the giant dragon bloodline, dead dimensional lifeforms aren’t interested in shiny trinkets. Tower Canon has likely been using these gems as a vessel for a special energy source. They are using these materials from fey corpses to extract wills and laws. Then, they used the wills and laws to speed up the fusing of the dead world and main world’s laws.”
Lin Yuan understood what Spring was trying to say.
The wills and laws comprehended by feys came from the main world. Using them as mediums would indeed be able to speed up the fusing of the two worlds’ roots.
Lin Yuan could easily use the Sacred Sword Wielding Queen to collect these wills and laws. Hence, he had no need for the vessels that Spring had mentioned.
However, not everyone had the Sacred Sword Wielding Queen.
This type of vessel would be very beneficial to Lin Yuan both in the main world and in the Sky Beyond the Clouds!
After entering the castle, Lin Yuan and Spring found the interior to be very dark and dank.
The eight black coffins were continuously sucking out the light from the environment.
The only light in the castle came from the chains of birth horoscopes hanging from the ceiling.
Lin Yuan pointed at the birth horoscopes and a stream of sand wrapped around these makeshift lanterns.
The sand rapidly started to break down the birth horoscopes, as well as the Eternal Hearts, Immortal bodies, and the like that also comprised the lanterns.
These lanterns in the castle could be described as the graves of experts.
If a birth-horoscope expert died and learned that their birth horoscope was going to be used as a lightbulb, how would they feel?
Spring had never come to Tower Canon’s old nest before. She did not know that the interior decoration would be so simple.
Spring pointed at the eight black coffins and exclaimed, “The Eight Pages of Tower Canon actually found a resource like the Reincarnation Gold Jade! They even turned the Reincarnation Gold Jade into eight vessels for their own benefit and left their individual imprints on them.”
Spring had been curious to find out why Tower Canon had managed to awaken 6,000 years after she severely injured them.
It turned out that it was due to these eight black coffins made of Reincarnation Gold Jade!
By any reasonable standard, the Eight Pages of Tower Canon were already dead.
Lin Yuan had battled the Eight Pages of Tower Canon, but the soul imprints they had placed on the Reincarnation Gold Jade had yet to disappear.
As long as the Reincarnation Gold Jade was supplied with sufficient energy, the Eight Pages could use the remnants of their souls to reincarnate even after hundreds or thousands of years had passed!
The Reincarnation Gold Jade was viewed as a treasure in the Sky Beyond the Clouds. How did those dead spirits get their hands on it? It seemed that the Eight Pages of Tower Canon had a fair number of secrets of their own!
It was likely that these secrets would slowly be revealed as they explored more of the castle.
When Lin Yuan heard what Spring said, the words ‘Reincarnation Gold Jade’ were seared into his brain.
Before Lin Yuan could speak, Spring took it upon herself to remove the marks on the eight black coffins left by Tower Canon.
It was only at this moment that the Eight Pages of Tower Canon truly died.
Lin Yuan was silently shocked when he saw this.
Luckily, these black coffins made of Reincarnation Gold Jade did not have warning alarms.
Before the imprint was activated, it would be in a state of primal chaos. Otherwise, he would have been exposed when he killed Eye Shadow!
“Lord Saint, you can store away these five items made of Reincarnation Gold Jade. From now on, you can leave the imprints of other lifeforms on these five vessels made of the Reincarnation Gold Jade.
“If the chosen lifeforms die, they can be reincarnated in this vessel! This revival does not refer to just that of the physical body. The soul can also be revived with all the previous memories intact!”
At that point, Spring could not stop herself from warning Lin Yuan. “Lord Saint, the Reincarnation Gold Jade is not without its drawbacks. Once a soul forms a contract with it, the Reincarnation Gold Jade will be imprinted on the lifeform’s soul until they are killed and their soul is destroyed!”
Lin Yuan nodded.
Lin Yuan stored the eight coffins in the spatial equipment. He would pick suitable people to place imprints on the black coffins made of Reincarnation Gold Jade later.
Almost everyone around Lin Yuan had formed contracts with the Lifespan Mice. Those that had yet to do so would eventually be able to. Hence, those around him all possessed virtually endless lifespans and did not need to use the black coffins made of Reincarnation Gold Jade to extend their lives.
As such, the best use for the eight black coffins would be to give them to his companions, who were always out on dangerous missions. This would be a form of safety net for them!
Suddenly, an idea popped into Lin Yuan’s head.
“Spring, since these eight black coffins are just vessels made of Reincarnation Gold Jade, can I repurpose the Reincarnation Gold Jade into vessels of different sizes?”
Each black coffin was almost three meters tall and could fit three people with no issues.
If the vessel was made smaller, more vessels could be made from the same volume of material!
If anyone else had asked Spring this, she would say that it was impossible.
However, Lin Yuan had the Totem God with him, and the Totem God could easily melt down all the metals in the world!
