Chapter 512: Nascent Soul Stage Cultivator, Two Magic Treasures
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As Lin Feng saw the temples of the Marquis of Jinghuan, he could confirm that his cultivation was at the peak of his current realm.
He was like Lin Feng before he formed the Immortal Soul. The Avatar of Ares had reached the limits of a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator.
For such a state, his powers would be extremely strong. Especially since he was very determined and that his body reeked of killing intent. It was obvious that he had gone through countless battles and his powers were so great that there were little people who could match up to him in the Nascent Soul Stage.
Among all the physical martial arts cultivators that Lin Feng saw before, although he did not know how Zhu Hongwu looked like, apart from Zhu Hongwu, there was no one who could compete with the Marquis of Jinghuan in terms of physical strength.
Maybe the Priest of the Royal House of the Northern Winds could, Lin Feng was not entirely sure.
Lin Feng could basically confirm that if this person formed the Immortal Soul, his Immortal Soul Avatar and his flesh and soul would combine, and he would become another Zhu Hongwu. When he was in the Immortal Soul First Level, he could defeat a physical martial arts cultivator in the Immortal Soul Second Level.
Even now, as he fought Fei Ye, he was very relaxed.
Such a form of relaxation demonstrated his confidence in his abilities. His body was filled with energy.
He looked like a young man that was slightly younger than Xiao Yan. He was about the same age as Black Jade in her human form. He looked charming and a sense of dominance was exuded from between his brows. His eyes were like eagles, filled with violence and aggression.
Domineering, Greedy, Resilient, Confident.
His demeanor was similar to that of Shi Chongyun. He was less cunning than Shi Chongyun, but more aggressive than him.
He did not kill in the dark, but did it openly. It developed from the merciless exploits of the Marquis of Jinghuan as he led his troops into battle.
“In this world, only the capable survives.” Marquis of Jinghuan revealed his face and first saw Fei Ye. After that, his attention turned to Black Jade. He nodded his head and said, “Not bad, very good, follow me.”
His voice did not contain any killing intent, but sounded very crisp and clear. It was even a little soothing.
But the tone within his voice seemed like he was giving an order. His words were like the orders that he gave. They were like military orders. Whoever listened to him must follow him. In a person’s subconscious mind, their first reaction was to listen to him.
As Lin Feng and Xiao Yan heard him speak, they laughed without making any noise, “This guy is really mad.”
Fei Ye and Black Jade could not laugh. The both of them looked at the Marquis of Jinghuan quietly. Black Jade said, “For those that God wants to destroy, he makes them mad first. Marquis of Jinghuan, you are close to your destruction.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan answered, “They can be destroyed because they are not strong enough yet.”
Fei Ye looked at him, “Do you think you are so strong that entitles you to do something as ridiculous as this?”
The Marquis of Jinghuan laughed and said, “You are Fei Ye from the Crimson Demon Phoenix tribe. 5000 years old, formed the Undying Demon Soul First Level and possesses the Pure Yang Primordial Fire. Normally in charge of the external interactions within the Demon Phoenix tribe. Among the Grand Sages in the Demon Phoenix tribe, you are the one who reveals your face the most.”
“In terms of experience, you are also the richest among your generation. But the last time you fought was 800 years ago.”
His enunciation was clear and his voice was sonorous. He did not rush and his reasoning was clear.
“I have led troops of years and fully understand the importance of intelligence. Although the Demon Phoenix tribe has been very isolated and sourcing for intelligence about you was not easy, it is a coincidence that you are the Grand Sage that moves around the most. Thus, intelligence about you has been gathered more comprehensively.”
Marquis of Jinghuan stood below the Immortal Royal Flag and he was as relaxed as before. It was as if he was having a leisure chat with Fei Ye.
He lifted his hands to caress the pole of the flag, “This magic treasure of mine is called the Immortal Royal Flag. There’s two important points about it. Firstly, there’s a word ‘Royal’ in it. Secondly, there’s also an ‘Immortal’ word. Although it’s killing prowess is extremely great, it is not the most outstanding point it has.”
Following the words of the Marquis of Jinghuan, the Immortal Royal Flag started to transform. As the flag swayed, it caused the entire sky to turn dark and engulfed Fei Ye, Xiao Yan and Black Jade. The black light it emitted converted into an independent space, cutting off Xiao Yan’s and the rest connection with the outside world.
Xiao Yan remained unmoved and felt the power concept of the black light. He realized it felt as if there were thousands of troops protecting an Emperor.
No matter how strong the opponents were, they had to protect their Master.
And the Emperor that was being protected was equally mighty. He had a royal stature that did not waver. It was indestructible and there was a deep desire to be the Emperor of the world.
This Immortal Royal Flag was like the Hidden Dragon Gorge of Shi Zongyue. It was a magic treasure that opened a small world. And this small world was even more stable than the Hidden Dragon Gorge. It was stronger and more difficult to be penetrated.
As what the Marquis of Jinghuan said, although this treasure was merciless in killing, it’s strongest point was the internal world that it created. As the owner placed himself inside, he could ensure his own safety. If he wanted to trap his enemies, it was the best spell to do so. There was no way the enemies could escape.
Fei Ye did not even lift his eyes and nodded his head, “It’s indeed extraordinary. But it’s a pity your cultivation is low. You are unable to summon the full powers of it. You can’t trap me.”
“If this is your only support, then I can only think you are crazy.”
The Marquis of Jinghuan did not panic, “This is not used to trap you. This is to prevent Black Jade from escaping when I fight you.”
As she noticed his flippant choice of word, Black Jade turned colder.
The Marquis of Jinghuan saw this situation and smiled, “You don’t have to be agitated. You will understand in the future. For someone as outstanding as you, you should only pair with another outstanding guy. This is only right.”
He turned his head to look at Fei Ye, “As for you, I have something else for you.” He flipped his palms and a streak of dark light flashed. A huge giant appeared in front of him. His joints were huge, as if he was made from metal.
The giant was expressionless and he seemed to be a walking corpse. His skin was dark and his muscles were bulging. Just by looking at it could one feel the frightening explosive strength he had.
His entire body was flashing with a bright red light. The intense, flaming aura engulfed the place. He did not seem lousier than an Immortal Soul First Level physical martial arts cultivator.
Fei Ye revealed a surprised expression. “He is from a cultivation sect in the Antiquity Age. Is he the God-Slayer Puppet, the ultimate work of the Puppet Sect?”
As to what happened in the past, the Demon Phoenix tribe was never very informed about them. But they knew many things from the Antiquity Age. Fei Ye could tell that the giant was a puppet that was cultivated by human cultivators.
Furthermore, it was a puppet that had the powers in the Immortal Soul Stage. The puppet originated from the Puppet Sect in the Antiquity Age.
The Puppet Sect was a sect that practiced the demonic arts. They were once dominant, arrogant and extremely ferocious. Their cultivator’s abilities were not that great, but the puppets they cultivated were powerful enough to use as weapons.
In the Puppet Sect, there were not only Nascent Soul Stage and Aurous Core Stage puppets. There were also puppets with powers in the Immortal Soul Stage.
The reputation of this sect was very notorious in the Antiquity Age. That was because the puppets that they cultivated came from the flesh of other cultivators.
The God-Slayer Puppet that the Marquis of Jinghuan showed was a very powerful puppet in the past. This puppet was formed from another physical martial arts cultivator in the Immortal Soul Stage.
Such an action was instinctively rejected by the masses, thus the Puppet Sect quickly vanished in the history books. But they did leave an impression in the human cultivation world. Demons in the Barren Expanses did hear about them too.
The Marquis of Jinghuan nodded his head, “I discovered this by accident. It is still very useful. I can use it to greet you.”
Before he finished speaking, the God-Slayer Puppet had already rushed out. It was extremely brutal and attacked Fei Ye.
This puppet was given the title of God Slayer because his role was to kill Immortal Soul Stage cultivators. It might sound mad but his powers were extremely strong. Not only did he preserve the powers of the Immortal Soul Stage cultivator he was formed from, he even became more fearless and indestructible.
The God-Slayer Puppet Sect roared furiously and the explosive strength of his voice almost tore apart Fei Ye’s self-defense mechanism.
Fei Ye was silent before he let out a crisp phoenix whistle. The tremendous demonic powers spread and converted into boundless squalls, which collided with the God-Slayer Puppet.
In the black light world, storms raged. The God-Slayer Puppet was very powerful and even if he was in a storm setting, he was untouched. He even used his own abilities to tear apart the squalls, forcing Fei Ye back.
But as a member of the Demon Phoenix tribe, Fei Ye was naturally very talented. Among the demons in the same realm, he was outstanding. The whirlwinds caused by his powers also caused the God-Slayer Puppet to be stuck in a quagmire.
The Marquis of Jinghuan’s expression did not change. A strong man wearing an armor appeared behind from void space. It was a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator. But this man did not come to attack Fei Ye. He lifted up two long daggers and handed it to the Marquis of Jinghuan.
He was in the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage, but was only fit to carry the Marquis of Jinghuan’s dagger.
The Marquis of Jinghuan drew his dagger and the blade of the dagger flashed with a golden light. It emanated a primitive feel, but exuded a sense of royalty too.
The tremendous power caused Xiao Yan’s eyelids to twitch, “What? Is this another magic treasure?”
This long dagger was another magic treasure. Although it was not as powerful as the Immortal Royal Flag, it was still very valuable. As it nurtured the original soul, its powers were frightening.
For a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator in the Advanced Stage, he had two magic treasures with him!
Even Black Jade felt inadequate, “Are these two original souls crazy? What are they thinking, why did they submit to a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator?”
Even Lin Feng felt curious. There were two magic treasures, one in the metaplasia realm and the other in the gestation realm. They were nothing special, but for them to land in the hands of a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator, it was something special.
Many Immortal Soul Stage cultivators only had one magic treasure. There were even those without one at all.
This Marquis of Jinghuan was only in the Nascent Soul Stage, but he had two. After Lin Feng observed carefully, he realized that these two magic treasures belonged to him. Although he did not cultivate them at the start, he was the one who finished their cultivations. He did not borrow them from someone else temporarily.
“Wow, he is powerful.” Lin Feng laughed. “Is he a stronger Hong Ye? No, he is different from Hong Ye…”
