Chapter 627: Sub-Hall Hallmaster, King Qinguang
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The two envoys from the Hall of the Dead sounded very fierce because they wanted Shi Tianhao and the rest to retreat, so that they could escape.
Not to even mention Lin Feng, they were already very pressurized as they faced Shi Zhongtian.
While Shi Zhongtian was strong, if they wanted to escape, Shi Zhongtian could do nothing much. The reason why one of them was captured earlier was because they did not flee.
But if Shi Tianhao and the rest assisted and cut off their escape route, and Shi Zhongtian joined the battle again, it would be very difficult for them to escape.
The powers of the Soul-Shaking Bell and the Soul-Repressing Clock were pushed to the extreme and they even revealed their Immortal Soul Avatar. They forced the Kun Peng Pavilion and the Eternal Night Demonic Stele back.
Cao Wei’s Immortal Soul Avatar was also forced back. The bunch of cultivators from the Hall of the Dead rushed towards the boundary pathway and wanted to escape to the Void Battleground.
But Shi Zhongtian joined the fight at this moment. As the skies were filled with black gas, golden light flashed and cut void space. Streaks and streaks of blood-red lightning tore it apart and blocked the way of the cultivators from the Hall of the Dead.
“Shi Zhongtian, you are seeking death!” One of the envoy roared. The roulettes created from their Immortal Soul Avatars spun and their powers were summoned to the extreme, converting into a grey world that was filled with deathly aura.
This world spurted out balls and balls of chaotic gases, and these gases covered Shi Zhongtian like haze
The surrounding black gases and golden light around Shi Zhongtian came into contact with the chaotic gases and started to rot slowly. It was as if their lives were taken by the chaotic gases.
These gases were extremely cultivated and they were even capable of killing an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator.
As Wang Lin saw this scene, his eyes brightened. As his gaze flashed, he seemed to be enlightened.
As Shi Zhongtian faced these chaotic gases, he was fearless. As the golden light converted into lightning, the lightning combined with the black gases and the golden color turned red. They became even more ferocious and brutal.
The blood-red lightning struck and destroyed these chaotic gases.
“Tianhao, the movement of spiritual energy in this world is very primitive. It is still undeveloped. Besides all of you, are there any others who discovered this place?” Shi Zhongtian turned his head slightly and asked.
Shi Tianhao replied, “We found it first. My Master name this place the Celestial Wonders World. The Hall of the Dead cultivators and you should be the second batch of people who entered this world.”
Shi Zhongtian nodded his head, “Then we must not let them go, otherwise they will leak news of this place to others.”
As he said, Shi Zhongtian roared and revealed his black iron cone again. It converted into a flashing blood-red lightning, tearing the skies apart. After that, it stuck the Soul-Repressing Clock.
“Dong”. An unclear and deep sound resonated, before a crack developed on the Soul-Repressing Clock.
The Soul-Repressing Clock released a pitiful scream. Mixed emotions were shown. It was the original soul of the Soul-Repressing Clock.
After he struck, Shi Zhongtian did not follow it up. On the other hand, he raised his brows and turned to look at the boundary pathway towards the Void Battleground.
From that boundary pathway, a long blood river was formed!
“Boomboomboom!” The blood red river was rumbling and released a pungent smell. Just by smelling this aura was enough to make one uncomfortable.
Shi Zhongtian focused, “This is the true Blood River Primordial Water.”
Legend said that there was an Unholy Blood River that was vast and boundless. Within it, there was the flow of contaminated blood, called the Blood River Primordial Water.
The Blood River Primordial Water was one of the six Primordial Waters. It was the dirtiest water in the water. Even the most powerful and spiritual magic item would lose its powers after it was stained by a little of this water.
If a cultivator cultivated the Blood River Primordial Water, he would have a huge advantage when he fought a cultivator in the same realm.
This blood river that appeared was undoubtedly cultivated by an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator.
Within this blood river, a light figure floated. A youth rose from it and looked at Shi Zhongtian. After that, he turned his attention to Shi Tianhao and the rest.
“Capturing Shi Zhongtian alive was for the purpose of dealing with Shi Tianhao and the Celestial Sect of Wonders. We have been keeping a low-profile previously because we did not want to alarm the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.” The youth said, “But now that everything has been exposed, we shall no longer be indecisive.”
After saying, the youth clasped his palms and the blood river rose to form a scroll. The image in the scroll also depicted a blood river. As the scroll shone a dark light, the blood river in the image of the scroll became real. Pungent and dirty blood flowed out from it and gathered inside the blood river on the outside.
The blood river underneath the youth became stronger and stronger. As its might filled the place, the entire Celestial Wonders World was converted into blood-red color.
The powers of the youth were unleashed and a chaos hole was formed above his head. Hazy, chaotic gases spurted from within, which was more terrifying than that of the envoys of the Hall of the Dead. Along with the blood river, the powers of the youth were immense.
Although this youth was only in the realm of the Immortal Soul First Level, his powers were extraordinary. Even Shi Zhongtian was becoming more serious.
The two envoys from the Hall of the Dead saw this scene and were first surprised. But after this surprise, they were also fearful. They bowed respectfully, “Greetings to King Qinguang”
“King Qinguang?” Zhu Yi, Wang Lin, Shi Tianhao and Yang Qing looked at one another, “He is the hallmaster of one of the halls in the Hall of the Dead?”
When Lin Feng received Wang Lin from within the Void Battleground, he threw one of the envoys from the Hall of the Dead into the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner.
After asking this guy, everyone learnt that the Hallmaster, leader of the Hall of the Dead, was the most powerful. Following that, the various hallmasters of the sub-halls were under him. They were the the Ten Kings of Hell. Besides this, the officials in the senior management were all envoys of the Hall of the Dead.
The Ten Kings of Hell were King Qinguang, King Songdi, King Wuguan, King Yanluo, King Biancheng, King Qinshan, King Dushi, King Pingdeng and King Zhuanlun.
There were varying cultivations among them. Their realms were not entirely the same, but they were all powerful Immortal Soul Stage Elders.
The person who controlled the blood river now was King Qinguang. He was a rising talent in the Hall of the Dead and specialize in the spells of the Emperor of the Dead. He cultivated the Unholy Blood River. Although he was only in the Immortal Soul First Level, his powers were sufficient to overshadow many others who were in the same realm.
This time, the plan to capture Shi Tianhao’s parents and Shi Zhongtian was helmed by him.
He was very brazen. As his plan failed, he wanted to change to a direct offense.
King Qinguang looked at Zhu Yi, Wang Lin, Shi Tianhao, Yang Qing and Tuntun. “Did the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders entrust his physical spell body to all of you again?”
He turned serious but was not fearful. Shi Tianhao and the rest knew that he was confident because of the Blood River Primordial Water.
For all matter in the Heavens and Earth, they could be useful in certain circumstances, but useless in others.
The Blood River Primordial Water was used to contaminate powers and spiritual energy. Even if a person’s physical spell body was powerful, it was still not his actual body. As it faced the Blood River Primordial Water, it could still be contaminated. It might even collapsed and the Blood River Primordial Water could even take control over the physical spell body.
King Qinguang did something like this before. But Lin Feng was very powerful. His physical spell body could repress an Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator. It were so powerful until it was ridiculous.
That was why the scroll, which was a powerful magic treasure of his, gave him more confidence.
The blood river flowed and converted into a sea of blood. As it engulfed the skies, it surged towards everyone. Very soon, it contaminated the spiritual energy within the Celestial Wonders World. Whatever that came into contact with it would be contaminated.
“Guys, I have to make a move. Otherwise, his Blood River Primordial Water will contaminate the entire Celestial Wonders World.”
At this point, a deep voice sounded. Following this sound, a man in white appeared. His hair was crimson-red in color but his brows were snow-white in color.
In void space behind him, a huge mountain peak appeared subtly.
Amidst the snow mountain, the scene of crimson flames raging could be observed slightly. At the top of the mountain, hot air was raging and smoke rose. Flames and volcanic fluid spurted out from within.
As he saw this man in white, the expression of King Qinguang changed, “Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain? The Heaven Lake Sect was destroyed because of the Celestial Sect of Wonders and now you are willing to become the lackey of the leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders? It’s a pity that the Heaven Lake Sect cultivated you until the Mahayana realm.”
This man in white was the original soul of the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain, the Dual Polarity Peak.
After hearing the words of King Qinguang, Dual Polarity Peak sighed, “My fortune is determined. Since I have made a decision, if I want to succeed, I must have the courage to accept my failure.”
“The leader of the Celestial Sect of Wonders is generous. I am willing to do his bidding.”
As he said till here, the Dual Polarity Peak was not willing to explain further. Many things were just needed to be known by Lin Feng and himself. There was no need to publicize them.
He did not say anything further. He clasped his hands together and the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain came crashing upon King Qinguang and the Unholy Blood River.
As what he said, he had no choice but to strike. Otherwise, even if Shi Tianhao and Shi Zhongtian were not afraid of King Qinguang, the huge battle that was coming would contaminate the Celestial Wonders World.
Lin Feng had already regarded this place as his private property, how could he let others damage it?
If it was another hallmaster who was here or if King Qinguang did not cultivate the Blood River Primordial Water, the Dual Polarity Peak might not have intervened and gave the opportunity for Lin Feng’s disciples to train themselves.
But to prevent the Celestial Wonders World from being contaminated by the Blood River Primordial Water, the Dual Polarity Peak decided to make a move.
The expression of King Qinguang turned ghastly. Even while the Blood River Primordial Water could stain a magic treasure, the Dual Polarity Peak was a magic treasure in the Mahayana realm. It was even stronger than Lin Feng’s physical spell body.
As he thought till here, King Qinguang did not dare to hesitate. As the blood river was summoned, the Hall of the Dead cultivators were dragged within and they rushed towards the boundary pathway in the sky, hoping to return to the Void Battleground.
“The aura of this Middle World is very primitive. I don’t think anyone has ever step foot into here before. The Celestial Sect of Wonders wants to claim this place.” King Qinguang thought. “I don’t have to challenge them here. Once I leak this news, the rest of the great powers will fight for this place. When that happens, I will have my chance.”
