Chapter 848: Your Reward is to Help Me Form the Virtual Entity
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As he saw this scene, how could Lin Feng not remember what happened then?
The Hades Emperor swallowed a part of the Spirit Sea. Because of how miraculous the Spirit Sea was and how weird the Hades Tribe was, all the other Hades Beast also benefited besides the Hades Emperor. But there was no free lunch in the world. While the Hades Tribe benefited, they also faced danger themselves. They were targeted by the Spirit Sea.
The white light rings on their horns were the restraints placed by the Spirit Sea. If they did not hide in this weird Middle World, they might be suppressed by the Spirit Sea.
In the past, the Hades Emperor was extremely powerful and he used various methods to help the Hades Tribe avoid the Spirit Sea. But after he perished, no one in the Hades Tribe was as powerful as him. That’s why the Hades Tribe was exposed to the Spirit Sea once again.
If the Spirit Sea did not suppress them intentionally, the power of the suppression was not that great. But it was still enough to make it unbearable for those of lower cultivation.
As for those with higher cultivations, they had to face the suppression of the Spirit Sea as well as the competition from the other human cultivators and demon cultivators. This was undoubtedly a taxing thing for them to manage.
But now it seemed like the Hades Tribe decided to retreat into this Middle World and await their opportunity.
Right now, the opportunity had arrived. The Great Void Sect mended the Spirit Sea and removed all traces left by the Hades Emperor previously. This also removed the restraints on the Hades Tribe.
This notorious demonic tribe was about to see the light again. Even though the Hades Emperor had perished, the Hades Tribe was still one of the more prosperous tribes in the Barren Expanses.
All these years, the Hades Tribe did not pass time blindly. In the city, many powerful demonic auras were exuded. The powers of the entire Hades Tribe were immense and exceptional.
However, they might not know what regaining freedom entailed or what they might face in the future.
Lin Feng looked at the view in front of him and many thoughts flashed across his mind, “The others may not know, but the Hades Emperor himself should know that after his death, his tribe members will become the target of the Spirit Sea. For them to cease being the target of the Spirit Sea, the Spirit Sea must be mended.”
“But did he realize that what he did will allow the Great Void Sect to obtain full control of the Spirit Sea in the process of mending it? He must have at least known that if someone mended the Spirit Sea, even if he wasn’t able to control the entire Spirit Sea, he would have at least gained a significant advantage.”
Lin Feng stared at the Middle World and a radiance flashed across his eyes, “That’s why the Hades Emperor must have left something behind to help his tribe members gain some kind of advantage.”
“Otherwise, he must have placed his entire faith in the belief that he wouldn’t die. If he did not perish, he could still help his tribe members to avoid the suppression of the Spirit Sea. But who could actually predict something like this?”
Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares looked at the light ball that was half in the world of the Spirit Sea and half in the ocean.
Over there, besides Lin Feng’s actual body and the Thunder Dragon Avatar, there was also the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl.
“The Hades Emperor bit off a part of the Spirit Sea. With such a deep enmity between them, the Spirit Sea definitely remembers him. If he dared to enter the Spirit Sea, the Spirit Sea will activate all suppression over him. Even if he can resist the Spirit Sea, he can no longer control it anymore.”
“If the hole in the Spirit Sea was not mended, the light rings on the Hades Beast will remain there.”
Lin Feng pondered in his mind, “This must be what he left behind. A secret method to help his tribe members to strip their physical flesh and demonic powers off themselves. Even their demonic souls will undergo some kind of special treatment, removing any memories from their souls. From there, they can relieve themselves of the restraints of the light rings. The price to pay for using this secret method must not be light. I believe that even if all resources are expended, only Big Luo can be created.”
“Furthermore, it will still require cycles and cycles of reincarnation before the Spirit Sea will lose its ability to monitor them. But because it’s so tedious, the process is still not complete even after the Hades Emperor has passed on. This Spirit Sea that has been sealed has also unable to be opened. If I came to this world 1000 or 2000 years earlier and found the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl and Big Luo, I may have to wait for him to reincarnate a few times first.”
Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares entered the light ball and came in front of the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl. He looked at the huge pearl quietly.
“Because of the wound that the Hades Emperor left behind, the Spirit Sea can’t be opened if the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl does not combine with Big Luo’s soul. When the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl and Big Luo’s soul combined previously, it ushered in the possibility of the Spirit Sea opening. After it was opened, Big Luo was able to enter.”
“But now it seems like the previous deduction is a little off. That golden seal and the stone talisman that was likely left for Big Luo by the Hades Emperor helped him to come to the Spirit Sea. But things are unpredictable. Who would have expected the golden seal and stone talisman to be taken by the Flowing Waves Holy Man so unexpectedly? If I didn’t obtain the stone flute, stone steps/stair from the Great Void Sect, Big Luo and myself can do nothing either.”
Lin Feng creased his brows slightly, “I feel as if there are still some problems. Big Luo is unafraid of death. After many cycles of reincarnation, his soul has been through countless rounds of special treatment too. He is unafraid of being cultivated. At the same time, only when he met the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl was he awakened.”
“But there’s something critical here that we have to take note. The golden seal and the stone talisman were used to protect Big Luo, but they were lost accidentally. But did the Hades Emperor not take this into consideration? Did he not take any precautions?”
“Let’s not mention this yet. How can he be sure that the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl will land in Big Luo’s hands and at the same time, Big Luo won’t be restrained by anyone, like…me?”
Lin Feng remained calm and his gaze flashed, “He must have left some precautions behind. But these precautions seem to have cropped up with some problems as the Hades Emperor perished…”
Big Luo was analyzing the essence of the demonic mantras left behind by the Hades Emperor now. Lin Feng did not bother him either, but he tapped the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl lightly.
After figuring it out for a moment, Lin Feng went to analyze the surging spiritual wave too.
After a while, he revealed a smile on his face, which seemed to be as warm and bright as the sun.
Lin Feng used his hands to conjure a spell, before extending his finger to tap on the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl lightly. A purplish radiance surged out from the pearl suddenly. This radiance exited the light ball and entered the ocean, infusing into the illusory image.
Following that, under the guidance of the purple radiance, the image filled the spiritual wave, converting into a white light. As if it transcended boundaries, it started to flow towards the Middle World!
Although Lin Feng was trapped in the Spirit Sea, he could tap on the hole left by the Hades Emperor and the demonic powers of the Hades Tribe to guide the spiritual powers of the Spirit Sea to that Middle World.
As the white light landed inside the Middle World, it did not reveal its form. Instead, it just took its effect on the horns of the Hades Beast. Instantly, on the horns of all the Hades Tribe demons, the light rings that were disappearing started to become brighter again.
When it just began, the Hades Tribe demons were not panicky as they saw the light ring getting brighter and brighter. A few of the more powerful ones were even excited. But very soon, they realized that something was wrong.
The entire city descended into silence suddenly.
In the next moment, a brutal roar resonated, causing the black fog outside the city to rumble in space. The Hades Tribe demons were enraged and the entire city was about to be destroyed.
As Lin Feng saw this, he smiled and tap the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl again. Another streak of purple radiance entered the ocean. As the radiance surged, it was guided into the Middle World by the powers of the Spirit sea.
After the demons sensed the purplish radiance for a while, their demonic powers shot into the skies. A few of the more powerful demons flew into the sky above the city and remained there. Their bodies started to flash with purplish patterns.
The miraculous yet violent demonic powers caused Lin Feng to crease his brows. As he saw many of these powerful Hades Beast, his eyelids twitched, “During the War Between the Two Worlds, the Hades Tribe managed to kill many strong individuals along with the Hades Emperor. With such powers even till today, it’s no wonder why they were able to create such a huge upheaval then.”
“However, the stronger they are now, the smoother my plan is progressing.”
Lin Feng laughed slightly and he looked at the brutal demonic powers of the Hades Beast flowing to the light ring on their horns. Those light rings started to surface with purplish patterns, and they continued to spread.
The ocean in front of Lin Feng started to surge with purple rays that seemed like clouds, causing the entire ocean to be polluted by these rays. However, these rays did not prevent the Spirit Sea from mending the hole that it had. Instead, they gathered the Great Tao inside the Spirit Sea, hoping to gain control of the Spirit Sea.
The Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl in front of Lin Feng was trembling tremendously, while streaks and streaks of purplish radiances were flashed from within. These radiances infused into the ocean and the spiritual wave as they were emitted.
“If it was not for the fact that the Great Void Sect had started to mend the hole in the Spirit Sea, the Hades Tribe would not have attempted to remove the light rings from their horns. Right now, they are able to take this opportunity to use the powers of the Spirit Sea that had converted into white light rings to gain control of the Spirit sea.”
“Now it seems like this is the true arrangement of the Hades Emperor? But in his plan, Big Luo is supposed to be the one to mend the Spirit Sea and relieve the restraints of the Hades Tribe. Following that, these Hades Beast are supposed to help Big Luo gain control of the Spirit Sea!”
“Of course, if he was still alive, he will be involved in the action personally. He will mend whatever he destroyed and regain control of the Spirit Sea.”
“What should this be called? Pot calling the kettle black, or cops and robbers under the same roof?”
Lin Feng looked at this scene and laughed, “Very well, I shall announce the start of the competition. The two competitors are the Great Void Sect and the Hades Tribe.”
The bunch of powerful demons from the Hades Tribe that led the tribe were now well aware of the plan of the Hades Emperor. After sensing the powers of the Spirit Sea for a moment, they were quick to realize that someone else was trying to obtain control of the Spirit Sea.
Whereas the arrangement of the Hades Emperor was also taking effect. Both parties were in an intense battle right now.
This opponent that the Hades Tribe faced was likely to be the Great Void Sect, as they concluded.
With regards to the detailed situation in the Spirit Sea, the Hades Tribe were not entirely aware. But they knew that they had to give their all at this critical moment if they wanted to gain control of the Spirit Sea and remove the restraints off themselves.
As they were not in the Spirit Sea, they were still subjected to some disadvantage. But even so, the Great Void Sect also faced a setback in their restoration of the Spirit Sea now.
The damaged Spirit Sea was still in the process of restoration, but the Great Void Sect Elders quickly discovered that their control of the Spirit Sea did not increase.
They creased their brows and focused on communicating with the Spirit Sea.
At the boundary between the ocean and the world of the Spirit Sea, inside the light ball, Lin Feng was watching this scene and he guffawed.
Streaks and streaks of radiances surged into the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl, before shooting out of it, landing on the actual body of Lin Feng and the Thunder Dragon Avatar.
“Oh yes, to increase the ambition of everyone, I shall announce that the reward of the competition will be…” Lin Feng laughed slightly before saying, “Helping me to form the virtual entity!”
