Lin Feng and the rest returned to Mount Kunlun. As they arrived, Dao Zhiqiang sent news from the Cloud Mirror City that he managed to obtain the Starry Purplish Grass Pill.
This was a task given to him by Lin Feng a few years ago. Although the Starry Purplish Grass was not like the Curled Condensed Crystal that was produced only in the Penglai Celestial Mountain, it was still a very rare treasure. It was mostly produced in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy.
Now that the Ancient Desolate Galaxy was controlled by the demon clan, it was quite difficult to obtain such a treasure from the Divine Lands. The Starry Purplish Grass Pill was also a rare material in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. Dao Zhiqiang expended a lot of time and energy, and went through a lot of procedures in order to obtain the required amount that Lin Feng demanded.
Lin Feng looked at the pill in front of him. Without him even summoning it, it was able to float in mid-space, as if it had a life on its own.
The dark purplish surface flashed with countless, thin radiances. They were like small stars that captivated anyone who saw them.
“It’s a pity that the quantity is only enough for one round…” Lin Feng was calm as he pondered, “Ancient Desolate Galaxy…”
He kept the pill and his fingers lightly tapped in space. A ball of clouds appeared in his palm. Amidst the ball of clouds, a crystal-like entity could be subtly seen. The clouds gathered and separated at times. When they gathered, they formed the crystal-like entity. When they separated, they became clouds again.
On closer look, after they form the crystal-like entity, inside this crystal, light mist could be seen. It was miraculous.
This was the Curled Condensed Crystal from the Penglai Celestial Mountain. When the three celestial mountains of the Ying Sea were just birthed, before anyone could cultivate the Penglai Celestial Mountain, someone did ascend the mountain for a short period of time and took this treasure out.
According to the knowledge of the Grand Celestial World, the Curled Condensed Crystal was not a spiritual medicine. It was just a decent material to cultivate a magic item. But no one used it to cultivate a pill.
As Lin Feng obtained the Penglai Celestial Mountain, he no longer had to worry about the quantity of the Curled Condensed Crystal. Previously, he obtained the Spiritual Feather Vine from Shen Qifeng. After spending some time to nurture it, although its scale was not that huge yet, it was sufficient if it was used to produce only one type of pill.
Whereas for the Starry Purplish Grass Pill, it had to be rationed.
As he thought till here, Lin Feng summoned Xiao Yan over. After Xiao Yan came, he looked excited.
Lin Feng looked at him and smiled, “What’s your reward from experiencing the core illusory realm in the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain with Zhu Yi?”
Xiao Yan laughed while nodding his head, “The physical martial arts of Emperor Chen is indeed powerful. The Celestial Fist of the Twenty-Eight Mansions was derived from the Four Appearances of the Twenty-Eight Mansions. The four appearances were that of the Jade Green Dragon, Great White Tiger, Blood Red Sparrow and the Xuanwu. Each of them contained the changes of seven mansions.
“As I referenced it to my own physical martial arts, I benefited greatly.”
Lin Feng said, “During the Primordial Age, there were many human cultivators who cultivated physical martial arts. Most of the human emperors in the Primordial Age were also well-versed in the physical martial arts. But because of many reasons, very little of the Primordial Age physical martial arts were passed down. There’s not much that we can benefit from either.”
“When the Antiquity Age came, mantras became more and more popular. Countless manuals appeared. There was only one person who could ascend the throne of the human emperor with physical martial arts. He was Emperor Chen.”
“His physical martial arts was unrivalled. Even the Great Sun Holy Man who was his descendant disciple was unable to inherit all of Emperor Chen’s powers.”
“In the entire human cultivation world during the Antiquity Age, the physical martial arts of Emperor Chen was the cream of the crop.”
Lin Feng looked at Xiao Yan, “If you wish to, you can try using our sect’s cultivation as the foundation to figure out the physical martial arts of the Great Sun Holy Man during your cultivation. With the rewards that you have obtained, you have the potential to develop further. Interact with Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar. This will be beneficial for the both of you.”
“Our sect’s mantras and cultivation is your foundation. But whatever goes above can be varied. I have always encouraged all of you to broaden your minds and open your eyes up to the world.”
Xiao Yan nodded his head, “Please rest assure, Master. I understand.”
“Oh, I believe Zhu Yi has benefited from your tips on the spells and abhijnas of the Demonic Shadow Sect?” Lin Feng laughed while asking him. Xiao Yan laughed too, “If we really have say, when both Second Junior and myself were in the core illusory realm, the powers unleashed by the realm might have been even stronger if the stars that we encountered individually were exchanged.”
Lin Feng laughed while shaking his head, “To let the both of you battle in an environment where your weaknesses are more pronounced, it’s a good thing. The benefits are greater.”
He passed the various ingredients needed in the preparation of the Trāyastriṃśa Elixir of Creation as well as the formula to Xiao Yan, “Next, take a look at this.”
Xiao Yan looked at the formula of the pill and scanned the contents on its surface. He could not help but revealed a stunned look, “Curled Condensed Crystal? Flying Stone Pith? These are all ingredients for cultivating magic treasures. How can they be used to cultivate pills?”
But very soon, Xiao Yan’s stunned look disappeared. He became serious slowly, as well as a little shocked.
He read the formula slower and slower. After finish reading it, he read it for a second time. This time, he read word by word.
After a while, Xiao Yan breathed out. He focused his mind and looked at Lin Feng, “Master, this Trāyastriṃśa Elixir of Creation is not simple!”
“If it really has such a miraculous effect, it will cause an earth-changing impact to the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
Lin Feng replied, “It’s effects are indeed true. There’s no need to suspect its falsity. One’s own cultivation has to depend on himself. The pill is only just a supplement. But when used appropriately, its effects can be witnessed.”
Xiao Yan nodded his head repeatedly, “This is indeed the case. I will go back to the Celestial Golden Pavilion to prepare. I have to cultivate this pill.”
He was a little excited. He was more excited than when he learnt about the physical martial arts of Emperor Chen from Zhu Yi. He was even a little eager to begin.
Xiao Yan was not greedy for the effects of the pill. He was talented in cultivating pills and medicine. With regards to this pill, he was also interested. Now that he had seen such a rare and valuable formula, he could not help but want to begin exploring it.
After going through some of the ingredients, he formed a knot with his brows, “There’s too little of the Starry Purplish Grass Pill. It can only be used once.”
He looked at Lin Feng and his eyes shone, “Master, when everything is prepared, let’s enter the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. Even if it’s not for the Crucible of the Divine Lands, it’s also good to get more Starry Purplish Grass Pill.
Lin Feng was amused as he looked at Xiao Yan. He saw that his eyes were almost becoming like the Starry Purplish Grass Pill, as they rumbled in his eye sockets.
After sending Xiao Yan off, Lin Feng walked towards the Tripitaka Block. He saw that Zhu Yi was still there flipping through the collections of mantra. Just now, both Xiao Yan and him were here as they discussed about mantras. At the same time, they converted their experiences in the core illusory realm of the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain into words in these collections. They further used the special powers of the Tripitaka Block to fill in the parts that were missing.
The remnant souls of the Hell Shadow Holy Man and the Great Sun Holy Man were both incomplete. The amount of information that they could provide were naturally incomplete.
The Tripitaka Block was able to fill in any missing information for certain cultivation manuals. For example, even if only one of the mansions of the Celestial Fist of the Twenty-Eight Mansions was known, the rest of the other 27 mansions could be deduced by the Tripitaka Block.
But for the other physical martial arts of Emperor Chen, if there were no clues, no more deductions could be made.
Lin Feng left Zhu Yi on his own and he tried to use the Tripitaka Block to fill in the incomplete Demonic Book of the Heavenly Tao.
But the result was not positive. After various tries, Lin Feng was able to confirm that the Tripitaka Block could only complete human cultivation manuals. It was helpless when it came to demonic cultivation manuals.
Lin Feng creased his brows slightly and he passed the first and second level of the Tripitaka Block and came to the third level, which was the topmost level.
He picked a bamboo chair and sat on it. He closed his eyes slightly.
Lin Feng used this third level of the Tripitaka Block to comprehend the Two Elements Micro-Dust and the Heaven Extreme Universal Light. Now, as he came up here again, he tried to figure out the secrets of the incomplete Demonic Book of the Heavenly Tao. He referenced to his own mantras at the same time.
After a long while, Lin Feng opened his eyes slowly and stood up. He descended the Tripitaka Block.
“I was right to cultivate the Thunder Dragon avatar. I roughly know how to proceed from now on too. But I always feel like there’s something blocking my vision and prevent me from seeing things clearly.”
As he pondered, Lin Feng exited the Tripitaka Block. He walked on the peak of Mount Yujing and he thought of something suddenly. “Oh, Hongyan is about to overcome the Void Lightning Tribulations?”
The Void Lightning Tribulations did not care where one was. As long as it was activated, it would transcend layers and layers of void space and attacked the person.
Lin Feng turned to the direction of the Blizzard Valley and saw the flashing of lightning.
At the same time, a streak of dim purple light shot into the skies. It clashed with the Void Lightning Tribulations.
As if it was enraged by the head-on collision and stubbornness of the other party, the lightning became extremely ferocious. But no matter how violent and brutal it was, it was unable to overcome the purple light. In the end, it disappeared slowly.
A ferocious wave of mana was unleashed from the Blizzard Valley. It was followed by a gust of intense energy. It was like a volcano.
From the Inferno Precipice, Heavenly Temple, Nirvana World, River Abode and the Qingwu Pavilion, treasure lights also shot into the skies. A few voices shouted in unison, “Congratulations Fourth Junior on forming the Nascent Soul.””Congratulations Fourth Senior on forming the Nascent Soul.”
Above the Blizzard Valley, a purple figure appeared. The long hair of the human figure swayed in mid-space, as if they were raging flames.
After hearing the congratulations from Xiao Yan and the rest, on Mount Yujing, the Successive Disciples exited from their abode and congratulated Yue Hongyan.
The young lady with crimson-red brows and hair clasped her palm and fist in air and bowed towards everyone. She also revealed a smile on her face.
In the next moment, she transcended void space and came in front of Lin Feng. She kneeled, “Greetings Master!”
Lin Feng’s ears resonated with a notice from the system, “Congratulations Master Lin’s disciple, Yue Hongyan, on forming the Nascent Soul within 50 years. The number of disciples who have formed the Nascent Soul within 50 years has increased to 4 now.”
“Bloody system, you didn’t include Wang Lin. Otherwise, the number should be 5 now.” Lin Feng laughed while shaking his head. He looked at Yue Hongyan and smiled, “Hongyan, congratulations on forming the Nascent Soul.”
Even though Yue Hongyan was always very tough, she was very excited now. Her voice trembled as she said, “It’s all thanks to Master’s guidance.”
Lin Feng shook his head and laughed, “You have achieved what you have today because of your own talent, determination and destiny. I am just someone who guided you.”
His right index finger tapped on his brow lightly, and he laughed, “Right, when each of you form the Nascent Soul, I will give each of you a magic treasure.”
