Chapter 699 – Creating a Domain
When one mentioned the Pirate Emperor, all the pirates in the Eighteen Corners Pirate Sacred Land would give a thumbs-up, and their admiration and respect came from the bottom of their hearts. This included the cannon fodder pirates all the way up to the Pirate Kings.
The first Pirate Emperor could be considered a true legend.
“The Pirate Emperor wasn’t just a peak-stage Void God Realm Emperor, he was also a Mechanisms Grandmaster, an Array Grandmaster, and someone who specialized in spatial secret techniques. He was a great all-rounder….” a rare sign of admiration appeared on the Cold Moon King’s face.
In that era, the Pirate Emperor’s strength was supreme, and he was extremely charming.
Apparently, many young misses of the Floating Dream Sacred Land super-families were tricked or charmed by him. One had to know that the strength of these super-families were close to a three-star superpower, and in the past, they had Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords.
In the beginning, the Pirate Emperor wasn’t a pirate, he was a Mechanisms Master. Specifically, he was a tomb raider.
Zhao Feng could imagine that a Mechanisms Master would find it extremely easy to be a tomb raider.
The Pirate Emperor was very lucky and uncovered many ancient ruins. After dozens of years, his mastery of mechanisms had reached the Grandmaster level, and he also started specializing in spatial secret techniques, uncovering a few forgotten realms. Apparently, the Pirate Emperor even managed to dig out a realm left behind by the Heaven’s Legacy Race, a race ranked in the top three of the Ten Thousand Ancient Races.
If the Ancient Race was said to have the most perfect bloodline and unparalleled strength, then the Heaven’s Legacy Race had the highest amount of intelligence.
Hearing up to here, Zhao Feng’s heart shook.
After doing well as a tomb raider, the Pirate Emperor’s strength increased by leaps and bounds, and he became a powerful all-rounder. With his increase in strength, he took up the occupation of a pirate and eventually became the Pirate Emperor.
“In that era, the Pirate Emperor was god. He even destroyed several two-star sects, including a peak two-star sect.”
“The magnificent Pirate Emperor pushed the pirates of the limitless ocean into a glorious era.”
“The wealth he saved up was dozens of times – if not more than a hundred times – wealthier than normal Emperors.”
Some pirates in the hall started to discuss in excited tones. They all cared about the Pirate Emperor’s treasures very much. Some even claimed that the Pirate Emperor’s wealth was comparable to the three-star superpower of the Floating Dream Sacred Land.
But all of that was hidden in history.
Only when the fight for Pirate Emperor that happened every three hundred years appeared was the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land able open.
“If the Pirate Emperor was so strong and undefeatable, how did he die?” a sudden voice interrupted the fiery-hot passion of the pirates. This voice came from Zhao Feng, and the hall became dead-silent.
“The Pirate Emperor died to a Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord from the Floating Dream Sacred Land.”
The emotions of the pirates fell.
Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord – this was a level that had surpassed Emperors, and it was just one step away from the Heavenly Divine Realm.
A rare light flashed through the child Demigod’s eyes. He still had a slight impression of this. He even knew the Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord, and he knew about the Pirate Emperor’s miracles, but the Demigod Kun Yun was stronger than normal Sacred Lords since he was half a step into the Heavenly Divine Realm.
“The Pirate Emperor was critically injured by the Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord, but he managed to escape by using a secret item from the Heaven’s Legacy Inheritance, then he created his own inheritance before he died,” the Cold Moon King murmured.
When he heard that, Zhao Feng couldn’t help but sigh.
The strength of a Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord was just too great. Both the Wind Lightning Emperor and the Pirate Emperor were legends, but in the end, they attracted too much attention and caused a Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lord to attack them.
According to what Zhao Feng knew, all the Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords in the Cang Ocean were mainly in seclusion in order to prepare for the God Tribulation. If there wasn’t any need to, they wouldn’t do anything in the outside world. The only thing that interested them was the domain of Gods – the Heavenly Divine Realm.
Zhao Feng had stayed in the Mystic True Sacred Clan for a while, but he never saw the Grand Elder before.
Of course, the fact that the Wind Lightning Emperor and the Pirate Emperor could attract Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords to attack them showed how terrifying their battle-power was.
However, another question popped up in Zhao Feng’s head – why hadn’t any other Emperors ever tried to forcefully take the Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance? Mystic Light Realm Sacred Lords might be too disdainful of doing so, but some two-star sects and Emperors should be interested.
“The Pirate Emperor’s plan is magnificent. He was an array and a mechanisms Grandmaster and he received the Heaven’s Legacy Inheritance. Only pirates can inherit his fortune.”
“Any Emperors from outside that try to enter the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land will be injured. A thousand years ago, an Emperor was even killed from it.”
“Once the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land faces power that surpasses the level of Emperors, it will crumble, and even Sacred Lords would be wary of the self-destruction.”
Everyone started to speak at once, revealing the reason.
All in all, over the past dozens of millennia, only the pirates of the Eighteen Corners were able to inherit some of the Pirate Emperor’s wealth or inheritance. Furthermore, as the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land became weaker, the experts of the other Sacred Lands didn’t pay as much attention anymore.
Another reason was that, when the Pirate Emperor Inheritance Sacred Land opened, there would be a test that would reward the person according to their ability. The resources and inheritances that had been rewarded from the test weren’t very shocking, and they weren’t enough to attract the top Emperors.
Of course, another reason the Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance was so attractive was due to something else – anyone that inherited the Pirate Emperor’s inheritance would be able to become a Void God Realm Emperor within ten years, and if one was already a normal Emperor, they would become a peak Emperor. This was extremely attractive to the Pirate Kings.
“Interesting,” Zhao Feng couldn’t help but become slightly interested in the Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance.
The fight for the throne of Pirate Emperor had its own rules.
Firstly, at least nine of the eighteen Pirate King Tokens needed to be gathered to open and enter the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land.
The Pirate King Tokens couldn’t be removed from the Eighteen Corners Pirate Sacred Land. This was set up by the Pirate Emperor, and if this law was gone against, it would be the same as going against the power of Heaven and Earth in the Eighteen Corners Canyon.
Furthermore, only the eighteen Pirate King legendary ships were able to enter the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land. Zhao Feng couldn’t help but remember his ghost ship and how it merged with the aura of the Pirate King Token and was now unable to leave the Eighteen Corners Pirate Sacred Land. This meant that he had to participate in the fight for Pirate Emperor.
“Zhao Feng, get used to the environment and integrate your pirate ship into our fleet,” the Cold Moon King ordered. Zhao Feng nodded his head, then left the hall and headed toward his ghost ship.
Currently, he didn’t need to fight. All he needed to do right now was get used to the environment and integrate into the Cold Moon King’s forces.
Including herself and Zhao Feng, the Cold Moon King now had a total of four Kings and three Pirate King Tokens. However, this wasn’t enough; she needed nine Pirate King Tokens to open and enter the Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance Sacred Land. Therefore, there was still a massive battle ahead of them.
On the ghost ship, Zhao Feng relayed the information to the skeletal Division Leader and told it what the Cold Moon King had said about the ship. Zhao Feng also gave the skeletal Division Leader a bunch of resources to strengthen its bones and increase its cultivation. Zhao Feng had just slain a Domain-level King not long ago, so he was very rich and feeling generous.
Within the captain’s cabin, Zhao Feng sat down and started to recall the fight with Lord Dark Snake and the Cold Moon King.
The reason he was able to kill Lord Dark Snake was because of the child Demigod’s help. After all, Zhao Feng couldn’t use his eye-bloodline easily.
“Without my eye-bloodline, I can only manage to defend myself against a Domain-level King. The chance of actually winning is low,” Zhao Feng concluded. As for a Peak-tier King, his chance of winning wasn’t high even if he did use his eye-bloodline.
Zhao Feng’s thoughts started to spin. The main difference between a Domain-level King and himself was a spatial domain.
“If that’s the case… I’ll also create a spatial domain,” a light flashed through Zhao Feng’s eyes.
He knew a bit about spatial domains, and he had seen Duanmu Qing’s Little World. The Little World that Duanmu Qing had was real, and it was of high quality. Even Zhao Yufei was able to refine the Purple Saint Ruins into a Little World with the help of Duanmu Qing.
“The domain of normal Kings aren’t corporeal, which shouldn’t be too hard for me,” Zhao Feng was confident because his talent was Soul-based, and he specialized in illusions. He had created the Illusion Maze long ago, a wide-area spatial illusion, and a spatial domain was just forming a dimension through Intent.
“…but what element should I merge into the spatial domain?”
Zhao Feng started to think. Right now, he had several options:
One; use the eye-bloodline and upgrade the Illusion Maze into a spatial domain.
Two; create a Wind Lightning Domain. This would require the Intent of Wind Lightning to form a spatial domain, and Zhao Feng guessed that this would take more time.
Three; create an Water Ice Domain using the power of his Water and Ice bloodlines. Zhao Feng guessed that such a domain would specialize in defense since that was the specialty of his bloodline.
After some thinking, Zhao Feng decided to create an Illusion Maze Domain.
“This spatial domain will utilize the advantage of my soul-talent. What’s more important is that it can increase my total strength very quickly,” Zhao Feng nodded his head.
For the next two days, he entered seclusion to upgrade his Illusion Maze. In his purple Soul Sea, Zhao Feng split his thoughts into several dozen and started to imagine how the domain would look.
A city of mazes started to form in his mind. The complete city was more than a hundred miles wide, and anyone caught inside would be unable to escape.
Zhao Feng poured in a lot of his soul-power, and the outline of the city became clearer.
In the past, the Illusion Maze city was just an illusion, but now it had signs of materializing. The Illusion Maze was formed from Zhao Feng’s Intent, and it had fused with his power.
At some point, the outline of a misty city started to appear around the ghost ship. At the beginning, this image was transparent, but a source of Magnificent Power started surging from it.
“What’s going on…?” the skeletal Division Leader realized that it had entered a half-transparent Illusion Maze.
“That was way too fast,” the child Demigod clicked his tongue. Zhao Feng had already managed to form a spatial domain with the Soul element so quickly.
“This is called talent,” Zhao Feng also felt incredulous. Forming a Soul-based spatial domain seemed instinctual for Zhao Feng.
