Chapter 1087: Yellow Dragon Palace
Mirage Dragon Mountain was destroyed!
Qin King had appeared!
The news quickly sent shockwaves throughout the First Continent.
Many people swarmed over, but they could no longer find any traces of King Qin.
Meanwhile, Tang Hao was heading toward the center of the First Continent.
Wherever he went, rumors of a great thief began to spread.
The thief was unique. He was dressed in black and wore a belt with a black cat. He called himself Liu Heihu, the Black Tiger.
The title sounded quite pretentious, which made everyone laugh when they heard that.
Even so, he was a terrifying thief. No treasure vault, no matter how complicated, could stop him. He would sneak inside, loot everything, and leave behind a piece of paper with “Thank You!” written on it.
Also, the thief carried a big and thick club and liked to knock the back of people’s heads. He appeared and disappeared unpredictably, and it was extremely terrifying.
Every faction that had been robbed had countless cultivators.
“That Liu Heihu is too detestable!”
“Defeat Liu Heihu!”
Countless factions joined forces and tried to hunt the thief down.
However, they found nothing.
The thief was too cunning. He appeared and disappeared without a trace.
The name “Liu Heihu” also gained notoriety.
The thief was, of course, Tang Hao. He had lost count of the number of treasure vaults he had looted and the number of people he had robbed. Once more, the treasures in his storage rings piled up.
The treasures had surpassed the previous haul in terms of quantity, but the quality was far inferior.
After all, the people he robbed previously were Path-Chosen and Void-Chosen with supreme treasures from the great sects and conferred families. The treasures in the vaults were not as good.
Even so, Tang Hao did not want to miss out on the opportunity to loot treasures and left nothing behind.
One day, he came to a city and sat down in a tavern. He began to investigate his surroundings for any lucrative targets.
Soon, he heard a piece of news.
“Did you guys hear about the Yellow Dragon Palace?”
“Yellow Dragon Palace? What’s that?”
“Hah, you don’t know! It’s said that the Yellow Dragon Palace is the ruins of an Immortal cultivator!”
“Wow! An Immortal cultivator!”
The people in the tavern gasped.
In the current era, the strongest cultivator was only at the peak of the State of Path Seeking. Path Severance cultivators were nowhere to be found, and the State of Immortality was even beyond that.
Even in ancient times, Immortal cultivators were considered figures at the peak of power.
According to legends, they were extremely powerful figures that could traverse the universe without using Artifacts. They were already on the path to godhood.
“Are you serious? That’s world-shaking news!”
“Of course it’s true. The news just came. I’ve heard that many faction leaders have gone there, but the Divine Mountains have also sent their forces. The two sides are caught in a standoff there!”
“Divine Mountain is also there?”
“Of course. Those are Immortal ruins we’re talking about. They’d be tempted too!”
Tang Hao was interested in the news.
There must be a lot of precious treasures in those ruins.
However, if so many faction leaders and primordial scions were there, he was not going to gain anything. In fact, they might band together and attack him.
Not long after, another piece of news came. After some discussion between the human factions leaders and the primordial scions, they decided to send in only younger generation cultivators below the State of Path Seeking.
The news caused a stir in the nations. Many young people and Nascent Soul cultivators set off toward the Immortal ruins.
Tang Hao pondered for a long time and decided to go and take a look.
His destination was in Jade Nation. It was only three nations away, and Tang Hao arrived there very quickly.
The sky of Jade Nation was filled with beams of light. People rushed toward the tallest mountain in the center of the nation. That was where the palace was discovered.
Other than people, there were also beasts. They were all primordial scions.
It was an imposing sight to see them streak across the sky.
“Look, that’s the Skybreaker Sparrow of the Eastern Divine Mountain…”
“That’s the old tortoise of the Southern Divine Mountain. No, that’s the baxia.”
The people in the cities exclaimed in surprise when they saw the huge beasts in the sky. Their faces were filled with reverence.
Primordial scions were the supreme creatures in the First Continent. Only someone as brazen as King Qin would kill them or even cook them as food.
“All the human elites are here, even Ji Wu and the others. The young elites of the primordial scions are here too. I don’t know which side is more powerful!”
Many people were excited.
The younger generation of the humans and the primordial scions would vie for dominance over the Yellow Dragon Palace.
The humans would naturally hope that the human side would win. Of course, they knew that the primordial scions were no pushovers, so it was hard to tell who would be the eventual winner.
“Do you think that King Qin will come?”
Some people also thought of King Qin. As the number one in the younger generation of the human race, it would be a loss if he did not come.
“It’s hard to say! He’s an enemy of both the major human factions and the primordial scion tribes. If he comes, both sides will definitely attack him!”
No one was confident about King Qin. After all, he had made himself the common enemy of the ten major sects, the ten conferred families, and the primordial scion tribes.
Also, the leaders of both sides had put such a rule in place intending to lure King Qin.
They had heard that the primordial scions had been hunting down King Qin, but they could not catch him.
As more and more people came, Jade Nation also became more and more lively.
A market was set up near the mountain. Many merchant guilds gathered there to sell all kinds of Artifacts and medicinal pills.
Crowds of people thronged the streets every day.
Tang Hao had arrived there some time ago and disguised himself as a middle-aged man. He had been wandering around for days to investigate.
He had to confirm whether the so-called Yellow Dragon Palace was real. If it was just a trap like last time, he would not bother about going in.
A few days later, he was quite sure that it was real.
Apparently, its discovery was a coincidence.
Someone had accidentally discovered a ripple in reality while hunting.
After that, the news quickly spread throughout Jade Nation and attracted the attention of the various large factions. In the end, the biggest factions and the primordial scions were alerted too.
They were also the ones who confirmed that the ruins were real.
Both sides had fought over the ruins, though they were caught in a standoff. That was why the elders had set the rules.
Now that the ruins were confirmed to be real, Tang Hao was not in a hurry to go in. He waited in the city patiently.
