Chapter 601: The System Frames Again
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The human cultivation world agreed that a cultivator that could form the Nascent Soul within a hundred years was an outstanding talent and was someone who had a bright future.
Why was Tao Yaoyao so highly rated, such that her name was even prominent within the Nine Heavenly Sword Alliance? That was because when she reached the peak of the Aurous Core Stage and was about to go for the Nascent Soul Stage, there was still some time before a hundred years was reached.
If it were not for the incident, Tao Yaoyao would have formed the Nascent Soul within a hundred years, without a doubt.
With the same reasoning, why was Shi Chongyun termed as someone with talent but no morals? People claimed that he had no morals because his character was very flawed. They said that he was talented because he formed the Nascent Soul within a hundred years. That was why he was called the Nascent Soul Chongyun and Shi Xingyun was called the Aurous Core Xingyun in the Great Qin Empire.
Before Xiao Yan, Shi Tianhao and the rest gained fame, out of the various talents within the Divine Lands, the ones that were the most highly rated were Shi Tianyi and the Marquis of Jinghuan, Liang An. That was because they formed the Nascent Soul early. They were even more talented than Shi Chongyun and Tao Yaoyao.
But now, this was the problem. The system requested Lin Feng to have ten Nascent Soul Stage successors within 50 years.
In the Divine Lands, how many of the younger generation cultivators could make it to the Nascent Soul Stage within 50 years?
Even those in the Middle World were included, Zhu Yi, Xiao Zhener, Shi Tianyi, the Marquis of Jinghuan.
There was no one else. At least no one else that Lin Feng knew. Maybe the Great Void Sect and Mount Shu Sword Sect had hidden talents that could do it, but maybe they didn’t have.
The Hall of the Dead might have nurtured some of these talents, or they might have some low-profile talents, but all these were uncertain.
The talents that experienced huge increases in their cultivations were mostly known. That was because most people had to venture in the outside world once they reached a certain standard. As they reached that certain standard, pure cultivation would not allow the cultivator to improve. He had to go outside and gain experience in order to overcome the bottleneck and comprehend the different mantras.
In this way, they would be known. Were there those who were kept at home without anyone knowing? Yes, there were. But they were in the minority.
There were only a few powerful cultivators from the younger generation that could be identified.
To include more in the equation, Lin Daohan, Yan Mingyue, Pang Jie were also one of the few talents. Even Zhu Yi’s mother, Meng Bingyun and his father Zhu Hongwu could be considered. The number of cultivators that Lin Feng heard before were only these few.
All in all, there wasn’t even ten of them.
Of course, from the current situation, Lin Feng’s own disciples, Xiao Yan and Shi Tianhao were guaranteed to fulfil the target. As for Shi Xingyun and Jiao Junchen, they were still possible.
This was summarized from the entire perspective of the Divine Lands. The great powers that nurtured them included the Celestial Sect of Wonder, Great Void Sect, Great Qin Empire, Great Zhou Empire and the Rule of the Emperor of the Ancients. These great powers provided the most powerful mantras and best resources. Without taking a few shortcuts and wasting a little time and talent, there were only a few of them who could form the Nascent Soul in 50 years.
The system wanted Lin Feng to nurture ten of them. It was really trying to frame him.
The only good news was that Xiao Yan and the rest could be included.
But the bad news was that Wang Lin could not be included.
Although Wang Lin was the first under Lin Feng to form the Nascent Soul, including the total time spent in the Heavenly Ray Cosmic World and the Void Battleground, Wang Lin had formed the Nascent Soul after cultivating for more than a hundred years.
Although the mission was only just released, the system counted the number of years of cultivation a cultivator spent before reaching the Nascent Soul Stage right from the beginning and not from the publication of the announcement.
But if Lin Feng’s 50 years limit reached and Lin Feng’s disciples had not reached 50 years of cultivation, the time would still stop.
With regards to how cunning the system was, Lin Feng already knew. He could not count on the system to give any welfare. Since he had the Heavenly Ray Cosmic World, he could just dump those who enter the sect late into there.
Lin Feng calculated the chips he had. Besides Wang Lin, Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and Xiao Yan were definitely able to reach the Nascent Soul Stage. There shouldn’t be any anomalies.
Among the rest, Yue Hongyan, Yang Qing, Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu had great hopes of doing so. Without any major incidents, they could form the Nascent Soul before 50 years.
Lastly, Lin Tong should also have great hope. Her foundation was very thick. But since she was neither human or demon, Lin Feng still need to consider how she could cultivate officially.
Especially since Lin Tong was formed from a tree. For a tree to cultivate would take a longer time. Overall speaking, she was a candidate that could be counted on.
Besides them, the rest were unknown.
Lin Feng laughed bitterly, “Let’s see if I can find any talents in this sect-recruiting campaign. After that, I’m going to let Xiao Yan and the few of them out. Let’s see if they can find anyone useful.”
As for this second sect-recruiting campaign, Lin Feng was looking forward to it. But as news was spreading, it would take some time before people came to Xiling County. Lin Feng still had to settle the rewards of the battle he just won.
The Natural Light Celestial Robe had its original soul destroyed by him. Honestly speaking, it was a good treasure. It was a pity its original soul was destroyed. But Lin Feng had no time to deal with the original soul, thus he went so far as to destroy it. He was contented to let the robe be part of the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
To obtain this magic treasure and allow the 12 magic treasures of the Two Elements of Creation Formation to be gathered, Lin Feng thought that it was an unexpected reward. It was also one of the more important reward that he obtained.
While 11 and 12 was just 1 magic treasure away, the impact on the Two Elements of Creation Formation was great.
The Six Forms of Creation and Destruction only had five changes. Although it could resist the Formation-Bursting Drum, its formation changes would still be thwarted by the Formation Bursting Drum.
As the Six Changes were gathered, it could defeat the Formation Bursting Drum. And the Formation Bursting Drum was a magic treasure that dealt with formations specially. If it was a magic treasure in the Mahayana realm, say the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain, it would be defeated even worse.
Besides the Natural Light Celestial Robe, a more valuable item that Lin Feng obtained was the stone stairs that he got from the hands of the Xuan Lin Holy Man.
Lin Feng held a stone flute in his hands and felt that the changes of its aura revealed a sense of compatibility with the stone stairs.
As he recalled what happened, he remembered that when he stole the Natural Light Celestial Robe from Kuang Heng, Shi Yu’s and Wu Qingrou’s expressions changed as they witnessed this scene. The Xuan Lin Holy Man was furious as he saw it.
Kuang Heng was an Immortal Soul Third Level Elder, who was a member of the Supreme Elder Council of the Great Void Sect, core member of the radical faction and opposition to Yan Nanlai in the past for the Great Void Sect sect leader position, had his Natural Light Celestial Robe stolen by Lin Feng.
The Natural Light Celestial Robe was a magic treasure that had an appearance like a long robe. As it was taken away, it was a big humiliation for Kuang Heng.
But Kuang Heng remained calm and continued fighting Lin Feng.
But after Lin Feng took the stone stairs, the Xuan Lin Holy Man was extremely furious. Even Kuang Heng was panicking and tried to snatch it back.
Such a showing caused Lin Feng to pay attention to it. This meant that the stone stairs was very valuable.
The stone stairs had its original soul and was in the metaplasia realm. Its original soul could even form a true entity.
But after it was suppressed by Lin Feng, the original soul did not lay a move and remained in the magic treasure. It sealed itself shut completely.
With Lin Feng’s powers, he could destroy it forcefully. But now, he was interested in the secret of this magic treasure. He also had the patience and time to cultivate this magic treasure. He could make the other party speak.
Besides the stone stairs and the Natural Light Celestial Robe, Lin Feng had to thank the Heaven Lake Sect too.
Cao Wei was sent into the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner by Lin Feng. As for the Two Elders of Ice and Fire, they were also repressed by him.
These Two Elders had better pray and hope that Lin Feng increases the realm of the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner to the metaplasia realm. Otherwise, they would be used by Lin Feng for other purposes. When that happens, their lives were destined to be gone.
Of course, if they rather die than caved in, Lin Feng did not mind too.
However, as compared to the three of them, what made Lin Feng bothered was the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain.
Amidst the snowy white and bright mountain peak, a figure of a middle-aged man in white surfaced. His hair was crimson like flames and his eyebrows were white like snow. He was the original soul of the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain.
“My name is Dual Polarity Peak, the original soul of the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain. I am willing to submit to the Celestial Sect of Wonders and be cultivated.”
The crimson hair and white-browed man revealed his stand very clearly.
Lin Feng stared at him. After all, it was a magic treasure in the metaplasia realm. The original soul could leave the magic treasure and unleashed all its powers. His powers were equivalent to an Immortal Soul Second Level Elder, but why does he have no backbone?
Who knew that the Dual Polarity Peak was very serious and said, “I am willing to be used, but I hope that you can spare the Heaven Lake Sect.”
Lin Feng said, “The Heaven Lake Sect is bound to be destroyed by the Royal House of the Northern Tribes. Its disciples are likely to be recruited by the Great Zhou Empire. There won’t be much bloodshed, but the Heaven Lake Sect will disappear from the Divine Lands.”
“As for Cao Wei and the rest, whether they can survive, it depends on them. For you, it’s the same.”
The Dual Polarity Peak sighed and shook his head without speaking. After that, he disappeared.
But through the Heaven-Destroying Sword’s sword casket, Lin Feng could feel that the Dual Polarity Peak had settled down and gave up all hope of resistance.
Lin Feng shook his head and laughed. As he flipped his palm, a few streaks of light figures appeared. Out of them, the brightest one was a three-foot crucible. The crucible was inscribed with an image of mountains and water.
Around this crucible, there were even 7 small green bronze crucibles circling it.
“This is the Mountain and River Void Crucible?” Lin Feng thought, “Including Tianhao’s one, there are 8 green bronze crucibles. There’s one more left. What’s the use of this thing?”
Lin Feng used his finger to tap the body of the Mountain and River Void Crucible. He discovered that its original soul was in a state of coma after being repressed.
“6000 years has passed. Even if it does not promote to the metaplasia realm, the original soul should have its own awareness. Even if it has been asleep for a long time, it should be mature by now.” Lin Feng thought. “But this Mountain and River Void Crucible seems to be asleep. It must have been repressed by the Heaven Lake Sect all these years.”
