Chapter 704 – Emperor Mu Yun
In the Eighteen Corners Canyon, the pirates were a big group, like their own country, and the Pirate Emperor’s Inheritance was theirs. The fight for Pirate Emperor always forbade experts from outside, especially Void God Realms.
Any outside Kings and Emperors wouldn’t even be able to enter the Pirate Emperor Inheritance Sacred Land. Only true Pirate Kings would be able to gain any fortune from it. Therefore, Void God Realm experts generally wouldn’t interfere since they got nothing out of it. Furthermore, it wouldn’t be good for their name if they were to interact with a bunch of pirates.
“Which Emperor is it?” the pirates asked after a round of cursing.
Although Emperors were all at the peak Void God Realm, they were still ranked. If it was a peak Emperor, then it would be troublesome, but peak Emperors usually wouldn’t do stuff like this since they got nothing out of it.
“Apparently, it’s Emperor Mu Yun,” the Cold Moon King said.
Emperor Mu Yun? some of the pirates present had heard of this name while others hadn’t.
“So, it’s him. Emperor Mu Yun is a new Emperor that just broke through in the Ten Thousand Abyssal Islands Zone in the last hundred years. He has no force behind him,” the middle-aged long-bearded man murmured.
Emperor Mu Yun hadn’t joined any clan or sect, and he wasn’t a part of the Righteous or the Wicked Path. It was understandable that he joined the Dark Dragon King.
The atmosphere within the hall was solemn and silent. The pressure brought by an Emperor was huge. The souls of those at the peak Void God Realm had reached an incredible level, and their strength would be much greater than weaker Void God Realms, hence the distinction between Kings and Emperors.
“We need to team up with the Giant Shark King in order to have any hope of fighting against a Void God Realm Emperor,” the Cold Moon King sighed.
The pirates in the middle-upper echelon within the hall didn’t say anything. Although they might have enmities with the Giant Shark King’s forces, that was an internal struggle, whereas this Emperor was an outside enemy.
In the limitless ocean, the forces of the Cold Moon King and the Giant Shark King were a couple hundred miles apart and slowly approaching each other.
Shua! Shua! Shua!
The Cold Moon King and the Giant Shark King were dozens of meters in the air as they talked to one another.
The Giant Shark King was even bigger than the Dark Dragon King, and there was a small horn on his forehead. The skin on his body seemed to be shell-like.
“The bloodline aura from the Giant Shark King is close to that of the Ten Thousand Ancient Races,” Zhao Feng inspected from far away. Of the three major figureheads, the Giant Shark King was the strongest.
“I received this news from my spies in the Dark Dragon King’s forces. It’s reliable,” the Giant Shark King said.
To make sure it wasn’t a trick, the Cold Moon King had ordered her subordinates to scout out the news.
All three major figureheads had spies in each other’s forces. It was hard to hide news about an outside Emperor joining.
Half a day later, after confirming the legitimacy of the news, the Cold Moon King’s heart dropped. That very day, the Cold Moon King and the Giant Shark King formed an alliance and summoned the other Pirate Kings of the Eighteen Corners Sacred Land.
The Dark Dragon King’s actions were a type of betrayal to the Pirate Sacred Land.
The Giant Shark King had two Domain-level Kings and five normal Kings, and he brought a total of four Pirate King Tokens with him.
“Now that the two of us have teamed up, we have eight Pirate King Tokens. We just need one more to open the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land.”
The Cold Moon King and the Giant Shark King started to discuss. Because of the outside threat, they had to team up, so they were able to easily gather eight Pirate King Tokens.
“It’s not hard to get the last one,” the Giant Shark King smiled confidently.
Over the next couple days, the elites of the Giant Shark King and the Cold Moon King started to head toward the depths of the Eighteen Corners Canyon, and many other pirates started to join them. The fact that the Giant Shark King and the Cold Moon King teamed up to face an outside foe won their hearts.
In just two days’ time, they had nine Pirate King Tokens amongst them, but they weren’t satisfied.
The Dark Dragon King’s betrayal and the interference of a Void God Realm Emperor went against the rules of the Pirate Sacred Land, causing many pirates to join their alliance.
On the seventh day after the Giant Shark King and the Cold Moon King formed their agreement, the tenth Pirate King Token joined the alliance.
“More people can enter the Sacred Land the more Pirate King Tokens we have.”
“What’s more important is that now we have ten, so even if the remaining eight are collected, they can’t enter.”
The Cold Moon King and the Giant Shark King stood shoulder to shoulder next to each other.
Now that they had received the tenth Pirate King Token, they had the advantage. If the Dark Dragon King and company wanted to enter the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land, they had to come to them.
“Let’s head toward the center of the Eighteen Corners.”
The group headed in the direction of the center of the Eighteen Corners Canyon.
Each corner had a Pirate King guarding it, and the center of the Eighteen Corners was the Pirate Emperor Sacred Land.
On the tenth day, the forces of the two major figureheads entered the center of the Eighteen Corners. They now had twelve Pirate Kings Tokens, seven Domain-level Kings, and almost twenty normal Kings. However, there were still only two Peak-tier Kings.
Zhao Feng’s ghost ship was extremely small in comparison to the other large ships.
During the last ten days, Zhao Feng only occasionally went to some meetings, and he spent most of his time comprehending the Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning and merging the God Tribulation Lightning into it. He also paid some attention to the top battle-powers in the pirate alliance.
“The very top battle-powers, such as Peak-tier Kings, are a bit lacking,” the child Demigod said. He was also watching the situation unfold.
Normal Kings were most likely unable to threaten Void God Realm Emperors. Merely the shockwaves from the fight of an Emperor could endanger them. Only Peak-tier Kings and some elite Domain-level Kings could threaten Void God Realm Emperors, but the pirate alliance only had two Peak-tier Kings.
“We’ve found the tracks of the Dark Dragon King’s ship.”
“The Dark Dragon King’s forces are waiting at the center of the Eighteen Corners.”
News came from some pirates, and the forces of the pirate alliance finally stopped their advancement.
At the very center of the Eighteen Corners was a cold black ship in the shape of a dragon. It was dead-silent, but it radiated an extremely dangerous aura. This ship was the Dark Dragon King’s warship.
“The Dark Dragon King only sent one ship?”
“Zhe zhe, looks like all the Dark Dragon King’s friends and family have left him.”
Discussion broke out amongst the pirates.
At least in terms of numbers, the pirate alliance had the advantage. However, the expressions of the Cold Moon King, the Giant Shark King, and some other Pirate Kings were solemn.
The weakest person aboard the Dark Dragon Warship was at the Sovereign Lord Rank. Above that were half-step Kings and Void God Realm Kings. The Dark Dragon King had six Pirate King Tokens, and four of them were Domain-level Kings.
It could be said that they were all elites. Therefore, the aura radiating from the Dark Dragon Warship was extremely terrifying, and it could wipe out several normal two-star sects. However, the most terrifying part was still the Void God Realm Emperor.
Within a secret hall in the Dark Dragon Warship:
“Lord Mu Yun, everything’s gone as expected. The Cold Moon King and the Giant Shark King have gathered more than nine tokens, but they need to reach the center of the Eighteen Corners to open the Pirate Emperor Inheritance,” the Dark Dragon King said respectfully.
Being a traitor, he knew it would be much more difficult to obtain Pirate King Tokens in comparison to the pirate alliance, but even then, he had successfully gathered some Pirate Kings and elites due to the fame of a Void God Realm Emperor.
“Relax, I will kill the Cold Moon King, the Giant Shark King, and the person who killed your adoptive father, but you need to do what you promised,” Emperor Mu Yun sat on a throne with a black-and-white robe.
Sweat started to appear on the Dark Dragon King’s forehead. He had paid a huge price to hire Emperor Mu Yun, and he promised even more rewards after he became the Pirate Emperor, otherwise, how could he have gotten Emperor Mu Yun?
“As long as I can become the Pirate Emperor and take revenge on the person who killed my adoptive father, everything will be worth it,” decisiveness appeared in the Dark Dragon King’s eyes. He had no path to retreat now; Emperor Mu Yun was his only hope.
Although their side had less Kings, no one doubted that a Void God Realm Emperor had the ability to turn the tide.
“My Lord, not good! The Cold Moon King and the Giant Sharp King have arrived!”
Chaos broke out. The Giant Shark King and the Cold Moon King led seven Domain-level Kings and almost twenty normal Kings to surround the Dark Dragon King’s warship.
Surges of King Intent and Magnificent Power seemed to freeze the air.
Within the Dark Dragon Warship, apart from Emperor Mu Yun, everyone else felt uneasy and unable to breathe. This number of Void God Realm Kings meant that almost all the pirates in the Pirate Sacred Land had arrived.
Pirates didn’t usually work together. Only during the fight for Pirate Emperor did others understand how strong this pirate kingdom was.
“Hehe, just a bunch of weaklings gathered together,” a faint laughter sounded from within the Dark Dragon Warship.
A male in long black-and-white robes appeared in the air, and a surge of Imperial Power spread across several hundred miles and covered the sky in a dark red haze. The sun and moon seemed to be blocked, and the environment seemed to twist. It was as if a hand had blotted out the sky.
The limitless ocean and the soul-dimension started to shake, and the hearts of all the Kings present shook.
The Magnificent Power of normal Kings started to shatter in front of the Emperor’s Imperial Power. It was as if a giant meteor had smashed into a world of bubbles. The difference between them was like Heaven and Earth. The weaker Kings even felt their blood boil, and they had to force themselves to calm down.
“So, this is the power of an Emperor?”
This was the first time for many Kings to have met an Emperor.
As everything within two hundred miles became covered in a dark red haze, the mist-like light started to move and control the power of Heaven and Earth. The Magnificent Power of the Kings from the pirate alliance was being stolen, and they couldn’t act the way they wanted.
This was a difference in Intent.
“Master, this Emperor Mu Yun doesn’t have the battle-power of a new Emperor. His strength is even stronger than normal Emperors,” the expression of the child Demigod became solemn as he looked at the dark red haze.
“What’s your suggestion?” Zhao Feng remained expressionless.
“The chances of the pirate alliance winning aren’t over 30%. I suggest Master leave.”
