Chapter 981: Sealing the Gate into the Starry Sea
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Faced with the pitch-black void before him, the Thunder Dragon Avatar’s eyes began to shine with light. Red, yellow, green and blue thunder light started to appear and immediately afterwards, the red, yellow and blue light disappeared. The entire thunder light turned green.
The green thunder light pierced through the void, but it was useless.
Lin Feng’s face did not change. He tried to use the Ten Crucibles Spell Formation once more as he sought to combine the power of the green thunder light with the power of the spell formation.
This time, the void reacted. It trembled violently and rippled, like a water’s surface.
A powerful, mystical energy could be felt in the ripple. While it was in the ripple, it did not prompt a reaction from them. Only after the power from the Ten Crucible Spell Formation was used could a reaction be sensed.
While Lin Feng could not be sure exactly sure how powerful the energy was, he was certain that it came from a Destiny level magic treasure. This power was as vast and powerful as the Heavens, as if it was capable of forming a world unto itself.
While the scene before him was still the pitch-black darkness of the void, he felt as if there was independent world in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy. It existed independently from the Starry Sea and was completely different from the space around it.
This was the Crucible of the Divine Lands, the magic treasure forged by Emperor Xia in the Antiquity Age!
Unlike the awe and dominance felt from the Imperial Palace of Emperor Tai, and unlike the eternity felt from the Immortal Dragon City, this magic treasure forged by an Emperor of Man gave off an immense feeling of heaviness.
It was as if the weight of the Divine Lands, innumerable as it was, had been concentrated into it. The heaviness felt from it was more than capable of crushing all creations under it.
“The crucible that stabilizes the Divine Lands, it’s truly extraordinary,” said Lin Feng interestedly. He looked at it and said, “Oh, the Crucible of the Divine Lands used its own powers and then merged with the Starry Sea. While the two are independent, they are still mutually reliant.”
Under these circumstances, the Crucible of the Divine Lands did not take its original shape anymore. Instead, it took the form of a shapeless world.
To obtain this treasure, effort was needed.
Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares lightly tapped the Ten Crucibles Spell Formation, which floated in mid-air before approaching the world formed from the Crucible of the Divine Lands.
When the Ten Crucibles Spell Formation touched that world, its vibration became more obvious as a passageway shimmered into sight.
Lin Feng smiled slightly. The passageway before him was like an illusion.
Through the incorporeal passageway, Lin Feng was able to sense the inner-workings of the world formed by the Crucible of the Divine Lands. It was different from its surroundings but instead, it bore a resemblance to the Divine Lands.
Rivers flowed in the mountains, the rotation of the sun and the moon, vast expanse of fields and meadows and an immense ocean…
One felt as if one was back in the Divine Lands.
As Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares manipulated the Ten Crucibles Spell Formation to stabilize the passageway, he sensed the change in Qi in the world. There, he realized that the greatest difference between the world inside and the Divine Lands was the power of the stars he felt.
One could imagine that in the eons spent here, the world had been thoroughly nourished by the power of the stars.
Starlight shimmered in the skies and compared to the stars in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, these were much gentler and better for cultivation.
On the other side, Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar waved his sleeves and Shi Tianhao, Yue Hongyan and company appeared in front of the entrance of the Small Divine Lands World. Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar and Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar appeared too.
Shi Tianhao, Wang Lin and Zhu Yi sensed the environment in the Small Divine Lands World through the passageway and then nodded their heads in unison.
As Shi Tianhao, Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar and Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar all specialized in physical martial arts, absorbing the power of the stars in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy would greatly improve their own, physical strength and was extremely beneficial.
Among the rest, Yue Hongyan was in her Intermediate Nascent Soul Stage where she absorbed the Qi from the nine heavens and all her pores were open. Starlight entered her body and even though she did not enter the Small Divine Lands World and was only in the Starry Sea, she could feel the bottleneck in her cultivation loosening.
Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu were not Martial Way cultivators. However, they could feel that that place was a good training ground, almost as good as the environment on Mount Yujing.
“The starlight in the Divine Lands is much gentler and better suited for human cultivators than the light in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy,” said Luo Qingwu as she stared at the stabilizing passageway. “For us, we had already experienced one round of Baptism of the Original Stellar Light. By being here, however, there are prospects for further improvement.”
Li Yuanfang said, “That’s right. However, we need to further plan. We should listen to master’s instructions.” Hearing that, Luo Qingwu nodded her head vigorously.
Here, Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar frowned. Then, his Avatar of Ares, as well as Shi Tianhao and Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar, frowned too. Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar turned around and looked behind.
In the vast Starry Sea, three large sources of light appeared. They appeared both far and close to each other as the many rays of light coming from them criss-crossed with one another in the shape of a triangle, which then enveloped the vast, starry dimension. The power in it caused the Starry Sea to churn.
Lin Feng frowned and said, “That’s the vibration of energy from the gate to the Starry Sea. However, this is not the gate to the Starry Sea itself. Instead, someone used its energy on himself.”
Under the power of the three gates to the Starry Sea, the location where Lin Feng was started to vibrate violently.
Near the edge of the triangle, a bunch of stars started to shine, and a door appeared. This was Lin Feng’s gate to the Starry Sea.
When this gate to the Starry Sea appeared, it slowly closed and the light from the stars gradually disappeared. All that was left was a solitary door floating in the void.
On Mount Yujing in the Divine Lands, Lin Feng stopped his cultivation. He looked at the inter-world passage with a half-smile. While the entrance on his side was unaffected, the exit from the other side had been sealed.
“Interesting, it should be the three idiots who contacted Heavenly Grandmaster, Golden Roc and Heavenly Charms. By combining the powers of their three gates, they were able to temporarily seal my gate.”
He then laughed softly and thought, “I wonder if the three of them would come.”
In the Ancient Desolate Galaxy, Lin Feng’s Avatar of Ares cracked his neck as he said, “Zhu Yi, take over. You try to open this passageway.”
Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar nodded and said, “Yes, master.” While it was a Martial Way avatar, he had no problem with taking over control of the Ten Crucibles Spell Formation.
Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar exchanged a look with Shi Tianhao and smiled. They followed behind Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and Avatar of Ares as they flew towards the gate to the Starry Sea!
After they had sealed off Lin Feng’s gate to the Starry Sea, three figures appeared in different directions as they approached the gate to the Starry Sea.
From one direction, two of them stood side-by-side. One of them was big man clad in black, wolf-skin robe who was more than 2 meters tall.
His long black hair hung loose, and his face was roughly-chiselled. His two eyes were blood-red. This was the human form of the Sirius Grand Sage.
Next to him was a giant beast. He had the face of a human and the body of a leopard. His ears were like those of a cow and he only had a single eye. As he walked, he held his long tail in his mouth. It was a Zhujian.
This demon was also known for its immense strength and prowess in archery.
The arrows shot from his demonic powers were extremely powerful. Those who were struck by it had a 90% mortality rate and even if one did not die from it, he would be permanently crippled.
The Zhujian Grand Sage who was walking next to the Sirius Grand Sage was evidently one who had experienced his Cardinal Tribulations. His powers were immense. Even the Sirius Grand Sage, who was usually brash and arrogant, showed him deference.
Everyone knew that the Sirius Grand Sage was the most powerful general under the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage. However, even the Sirius Grand Sage himself knew that the Zhujian Grand Sage was his senior’s trump card.
The only reason he had kept such a low profile before his was because the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage deliberately arranged for him to cultivate.
In the past few years, as the power of the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage grew, the Barren Expanses became more and more turbulent. It was only then when the Zhujian Grand Sage became more and more prominent. Only then did others know that the power of the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage was exceptional indeed.
On the other side, two demons approached too. One of them bore two wings and had the skin of a porcupine. He appeared to be a cross between a tiger and a cow and was immensely brutish. It was the Qiong Qi Grand Sage.
By his side, the other demon gave off a completely different aura. That demon appeared refined and elegant. His entire body was blue, and he had an elaborate tail. His body shone with five-colored light. It was a peacock.
When the Sirius Grand Sage and the Zhujian Grand Sage saw the peacock, a look crossed their faces.
When the Golden Roc Grand Sage first came to prominence, a Peacock Grand Sage once proclaimed him to be his brother. The two of them were extremely close and could be said to be brothers.
However, as the Golden Roc Grand Sage became more and more prominent, fewer and fewer people heard about the Peacock Grand Sage. No one knew where he went.
Some thought that the ambition of the Golden Roc Grand Sage distanced the Peacock Grand Sage from him. Others thought that he had died in an accident.
Today, looking at the Peacock Grand Sage walking together with the Qiong Qi Grand Sage, everyone knew that the Golden Roc Grand Sage had always been allied with the Peacock Grand Sage. The situation should be similar to that of the Zhujian Grand Sage.
The Sirius Grand Sage’s blood-red eyes flashed as he noticed that not only did the Peacock Grand Sage possess a five-colored light, his feathers appeared covered by a layer of purple light. If the Golden Roc was willing to share this power with him, it was testament to how close the two were.
Like the Golden Roc Grand Sage, the Peacock Grand Sage had started undergoing the tribulations.
The third party comprised only the Six-Horned Grand Sage. No other ape could be seen. At that moment, he looked coldly by the side as his gaze alternated between the Zhujian Grand Sage and the Peacock Grand Sage.
Between the Sirius Grand Sage and the Zhujian Grand Sage, no one was clear who was the true second-in-command after the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage.
However, the Peacock Grand Sage surely ranked right after the Golden Roc Grand Sage. His status was similar to the Crimson Gorilla Grand Sage under the Heavenly Grandmaster Grand Sage or the Earth Dragon King of the dragons.
Even the Qiong Qi Grand Sage, who possessed the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation, ranked behind him,
The Zhujian Grand Sage and the Peacock Grand Sage finally revealed their faces. The situation in the Barren Expanses was about to become more interesting.
At this moment, everyone’s gaze was focused on the gate to the Starry Sea owned by Lin Feng!
