Chapter 630: No Longer Just a Lone Soldier
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and the rest explored the Celestial Wonders World. Whereas Wang Lin sent King Qinguang and the Hall of the Dead cultivators back to Mount Yujing.
On Mount Yujing, Lin Feng was still protecting Xiao Yan. Xiao Yan stabilized the five Primordial Fires and perfected his powers. It was a long process.
Wang Lin returned to the mountain and passed the ball of Purple Clouds, which was the Celestial Small World, to Lin Feng.
As Lin Feng saw this, he could not help but laugh, “The restrictions on the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner are slowly becoming insufficient.”
“Very well, Wang Lin, I shall guide you to cultivate more restrictions for the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner.”
Wang Lin nodded his head. While he obtained the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner, he could not cultivate it as he was not in the Immortal Soul Stage. He could only count on the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner to cultivate on its own.
But if a magic treasure in the gestation realm did not have an Immortal Soul Stage cultivator to cultivate it, the absorption of spiritual energy would be very slow and the efficiency would be low.
Lin Feng gave the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner to Wang Lin, so he wouldn’t cultivate it himself. He would at most guide from one side.
Now that the restrictions of the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner had dwindled, the number of Immortal Soul Stage cultivators that could be trapped was limited. That was why Lin Feng was helping Wang Lin to add more restrictions.
On one hand, this increased the powers of the magic treasure. On another hand, Wang Lin would learn.
Since Wang Lin was very intelligent, he understood the core concept of it very quickly. Whatever he could not understand was because of his limited cultivation.
The more restrictions that were cultivated into the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner, the more Immortal Soul Stage Elders could be trapped within the banner.
After Lin Feng added a few more restrictions, the banner swayed and King Qinguan and three other Hall of the Dead cultivators in the Immortal Soul Stage were trapped within the banner.
King Qinguang wanted to resist and kept on summoning the scroll of the Blood River, using the Blood River Primordial Water to resist the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner.
Lin Feng laughed and slapped across, causing the Unholy Blood River to be compressed. King Qinguang let out a distressed roar and was suppressed by the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner.
After interrogating him, Lin Feng laughed, “Firstly, you found trouble with my third disciple. Now you want to attack my second youngest disciple. I did not find trouble with all of you, but all of you dare to find trouble with me?”
The look of King Qinguang was very bitter.
He did not expect to meet Shi Tianhao in the Celestial Wonders World as he tried to capture Shi Zhongtian.
It was fine if he met them. Since he had the scroll of the Blood River and he controlled the Unholy Blood River, even if Shi Tianhao and the rest possessed Lin Feng’s physical spell body, he still had the chance to escape.
Since the Celestial Sect of Wonders wanted to unearth the Celestial Wonders World and Lin Feng could not be there, he sent Dual Polarity Peak over and even passed the Dual Polarity his abhijna.
His abhijna was not harmful, but was specially used for suppressing and sealing enemies. This caused King Qinguang to be trapped
After capturing the Hall of the Dead cultivators, especially King Qinguang, Lin Feng interrogated them carefully and learnt many secrets of the Hall of the Dead.
The space in the Void Battleground was very confusing. As a cultivator entered, he could not determine his exact location. If he wanted to escape the Void Battleground, he could not confirm his exact location either.
The camp at which the Hall of the Dead was located did not have any contact with the Greater World. It was only connected to the Void Battleground. But the entrance and exit point was also unclear.
Even for King Qinguang and the Immortal Soul Stage cultivators, if they wanted to enter and leave that Middle World, they could not really determine their location. They had to depend on the hallmasters to use talismans to guide them.
But the talismans they used were very weird. They needed them to work in two different directions. Even Lin Feng could not locate and proceed to that Middle World as he obtained the talismans from them.
“The Hall of the Dead is very cautious. In this way, it is similar to Mount Yujing. But Mount Yujing can shift at will and move to anywhere in the world.” Lin Feng thought in his heart. “But it is able to hide itself well. Even I find it hard to locate it.”
But they were very cautious because the Hall of the Dead invited a lot of hate. If they did not hide, they would have been discovered and eliminated already.
“What is the point of collecting the souls of extraordinary people?” Lin Feng asked. Since King Qinguang was restrained, he had no choice but to answer honestly, “This is an order and has something to do with cultivation. But I am unsure of anything detailed.”
Lin Feng nodded his head slightly. From the Hall of the Dead envoy that had been captured in the Void Battleground earlier, Lin Feng had already found out that even though the Hall of the Dead was very secretive, they were not purely just a sect. Besides nurturing their own cultivators, they also lure powerful cultivators from elsewhere to join.
The Emperor of the Dead Mantra was special because it could be cultivated by anyone regardless of their cultivation. One could cultivate the foundation of it when he was young before venturing further as he grew older. Or he could cultivate other types of mantra before switching to the Emperor of the Dead Mantra.
After switching to the Emperor of the Dead Mantra, one could still preserve 70-80% of the essence of his previous mantra.
The reason was because many things involved the soul, but this Emperor of the Dead Mantra was not just a pure soul-cultivating mantra like the Exploration of the Great Void Thinking or the Spells of the Soul of the Royal House of the Northern Tribes.
The leader of the Hall of the Dead sought the souls of those who were extraordinary because of his own cultivation.
“Master, the abhijnas cultivated from the Emperor of the Dead Mantra are interesting.” Wang Lin said, “They have destructive gases, but these destructive gases are beyond ordinary”
Lin Feng laughed while tapping the banner pole of the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner. King Qinguang answered honestly, “That is the chaotic gas of destruction. After cultivating the destructive gas with the mantra and returning it to the primitive, chaotic state, ceasing the cultivation right before everything becomes chaos followed by cultivating a second time with a different manual, the chaotic gas of destruction can be formed.”
“Because the process that converts this gas to chaos is ceased right before it ends, it cannot be reversed easily. It then becomes stronger than an average destructive gas.”
Wang Lin was enlightened and nodded his head, “It is indeed special.”
Lin Feng passed the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner to him and laughed, “Go and figure it out after you bring it back.”
Wang Lin received the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner and did not rush to enquire about cultivation-related matters. Firstly, he asked where the Nascent Soul Stage cultivator that desecrated his hometown went to
“I know about this. But that person is not under me. He is an external member of the Hall of the Dead. He is not from the core group of disciples. As to where he is, I am unsure.” King Qinguang answered honestly. “I only know that he is under King Wuguan.”
Wang Lin’s gaze turned cold, “King Wuguan…”
Lin Feng said, “Don’t be anxious. This is only the start between the Hall of the Dead and the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
“Yes, Master.” Wang Lin nodded his head and did not continue.
King Qinguang sighed. Lin Feng’s words signified that he was going to settle the Hall of the Dead.
As for the Celestial Sect of Wonders and Lin Feng, the Hall of the Dead never once underestimate them. Especially since the battle at Xiling City, they would not look down on them.
But ever since then, what everyone knew about the Celestial Sect of Wonders was that Lin Feng was invincible and that his disciples were talented beyond measure. But the foundation of the sect was still very shallow. After all, the sect had only been established for a short period of time thus far.
But King Qinguang did not have such a thought now. The Dual Polarity Peak had pledged allegiance to Lin Feng. Shi Zhongtian escaped from the Void Battleground. In the future, he could return to the Shi Clan, or he could commit to Mount Yujing.
The powers of the senior management of the Celestial Sect of Wonders were expanding. Previously, everything was done by Lin Feng personally. But now, he did not need to do so.
Right now, Lin Feng was not just a lone soldier and had to do everything on his own.
As they claimed the Celestial Wonders World, the presence of the Dual Polarity Peak, Virtuous Zen Master and Shi Zhongtian were enough to deter other great powers from coming close to the world.
Shi Tianhao, Zhu Yi and the rest were maturing quickly, and they formed the middle level management of the sect. With the rate at which they developed, they were only going to become more frightening.
The disciples at the bottom might not be successful yet, but as time passed, the resources provided by the Celestial Wonders World would help those at the bottom to progress quickly.
Previously in the Void Battleground, Lin Feng had already blacklisted the Hall of the Dead. He was just moving them up the list now.
But Lin Feng did not really have the urge to make a move personally. The reason was simple. For them to incur the wrath of Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao, who were both destined individuals, they were looking for trouble.
They were just looking for more trouble for themselves. Right now, they had already delivered a hallmaster and three envoys to the Celestial Sect of Wonders. In the future, there were bound to be more of them.
Lin Feng’s main consideration now was how to channel the resources of the Celestial Wonders World into the driving force of the development of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. This was a very good opportunity and suitable for building up the foundation of his sect.
As he thought of it, Lin Feng had an idea.
Right now, in the Celestial Wonders World, Shi Tianhao and the rest were in front of the pond in the deep valley. Shi Tianhao’s brows flashed with radiance and a huge, dirt-yellow light figure appeared. It was Lin Feng’s Heaven-Bearing Emperor which appeared.
The Heaven-Bearing Emperor shrank and landed beside Shi Tianhao and the rest.
As Zhu Yi, Shi Tianhao and the rest became more powerful, Lin Feng slowly passed them his physical spell bodies. After all, they still needed guidance.
Because they were exploring the Celestial Wonders World, which was an important mission, that was why he allowed the Heaven-Bearing Emperor to follow along. But during the battle earlier, the Heaven-Bearing Emperor was not unleashed.
As they faced the black pond now, Lin Feng felt the difference within. That was why he summoned the Heaven-Bearing Emperor.
After meeting Shi Zhongtian briefly, the Heaven-Bearing Emperor stood above the black pond. He felt the transformations within. After a few moments, he said, “There is something underneath the pond.”
As he said, he dragged Shi Tianhao and the rest with his powers and dived into the pond with them.
As they entered, Lin Feng could feel the vast chill coursing through his veins. The black pond engulfed all light. It contained an extreme chill and extreme Yin, while nurturing the power concepts of Pure Yin, extreme chill and darkness. They even reached a profound stage.
That feeling was like combining the powers of the Mingdu remains, Xuanming Primordial Water and the Netherworld Purple Crystal.
The pond was not sticky and the water did not contain any impurities. It was just black and did not reflect any light.
Lin Feng and Shi Zhongtian dived all the way down, and they soon realized something was amiss. Inside this pond, there was the presence of life. And it was even a pretty strong presence of life.
