Chapter 1751: Life game
The location of Kunyun Small World was not far from Triple Deities Sect and it was above Lake Guang.
A few moments later, the tens of thousands of people of the various superpowers arrived at a vast water city.
This water city appeared broad and endless. There didn’t seem to be an island anywhere near it.
Xu Wushen and the Tripe Deities Set members stopped above the water city.
A few moments later, the crowd lowered themselves and the mass of people arrived at the destination.
“Everyone, this is the entrance to Kunyun Small World. I will explain the rules of the Sky Dragon Contest now.” Xu Wushen glanced at the crowd around him and said in a loud voice.
Although the top superpowers of the galaxy knew the new rules of the contest, many minor superpowers were unaware of the change in rules.
The crowd stared intently at Xu Wushen, awaiting his explanation of the rules.
Su Mo was also focusing intently on Xu Wushen. He was curious as to what the new rules of the contest were.
“Firstly, all the geniuses of the superpowers who will attend the Sky Dragon Contest, please come forward!” Xu Wushen said in a loud voice.
Shuffling sounds escaped the crowd as many bodies flashed and a few thousand people gathered forward.
Su Mo, Gu Feifei, the First Prince and the other 2 participating members stepped forward.
Wu Qiong, Ju Shen, Xue Juntian, Qin Yun, Jiang Shenye, Wu Fengtian and many others also flew forward instantly.
Su Mo’s eyes scanned the rest of the participating members and he realized there were 6,000 people participating in the Sky Dragon Contest.
Although only 5 people from the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction were allowed to enter the Sky Dragon Contest. There were a few hundred other superpowers like the Imperial Ancestor Court Faction.
Furthermore, major superpowers such as the Triple Deities Sect, Sorcerer Tribe and the Giant Beings Clan had a larger proportion of shortlisted candidates.
Qing Ya did not participate in the contest. After all, her cultivation rank was low, and although she had improved greatly in the past year, she was only a Rank 4 Martial Honorable.
Jiang Shenye’s cultivation rank surprised Su Mo because he had also reached the Rank 7 Martial Honorable Realm.
However, Jiang Shenye was only in the early stages of the Rank 7 Martial Honorable Realm and his aura was very light and thin, evidence that he had just broken through to the new realm, and as such, his cultivation base was highly unstable.
Su Mo could only shake his head silently. The cultivation base that Jiang Shenye had would influence his fighting strength and be a huge problem to him.
Xu Wushen stared at the group of geniuses who had stepped forward and he nodded his head slightly. The number of people agreed to what he should have.
The Sky Dragon Contest was conducted at Trinity Star and the Triple Deities Sect was also the current holder of the Ancient Demon’s vein. As such, Xu Wushen would be the main organizer of the Sky Dragon Contest.
Thereafter, he turned his head towards the experts who led the superpowers and said, “All the leaders of the superpowers, please check whether the correct candidates of your superpowers have stepped forward.”
Many experts nodded their heads to confirm that their selections were correct. There would be no mistake in the selection as no disciple would dare to sabotage the selections.
“Alright, I will announce the new rules now!”
Xu Wushen nodded his head and looked at all the geniuses attending the Sky Dragon Contest as he announced, “Kunyun Small World is a 1,000 kilometer wide small world. The space in the world has already been covered by a special array and whichever one of you is able to stay the longest in the small world will win the contest!”
Numerous geniuses exclaimed in shock. Who would last the longest in this world? Did that mean there would be no battles?
Su Mi was also taken aback. No need for battles? How could that be considered a contest?
On the other hand, the Triple Deities Sect, Sorcerer Tribe, Giant Beings Clan, Black Scale Clan and the other geniuses of the superpowers were calm. They were obviously briefed on the new rules earlier.
“Of course, to obtain victory, you may eliminate others!” Xu Wushen continued.
Everyone nodded their heads in realization. It seemed that there would still be battles and the only thing that had changed was the method of the battles.
However, there were many doubts about the new rules. If someone was especially skilled at hiding, what would they do if he hid?
It seemed that there were other rules to tackle these problems.
At that moment, Xu Wushen waved his hand and numerous rays of light flashed before the group of geniuses.
These rays of light were 6,000 jade pendants, exactly enough for all the geniuses attending the Sky Dragon Contest.
“Everyone who participates in the Sky Dragon Contest, take one jade pendant each and leave your unique mental prints on it!” Xu Wushen said.
The crowd immediately did as Xu Wushen said. Su Mo clutched the jade pendant in his hand and left a thin thread of his mental print of it.
At that point, he could see tiny dots of light on his jade pendant. There were a total of 6,000 spots of light.
“These jade pendants are an important tool for the Sky Dragon Contest. You may use these jade pendants to sense everyone else who was within a 10 kilometer radius from you.”
Xu Wushen explained, “If the jade pendant is lost or stolen by someone else. You will immediately be taken out of Kunyun Small World, and you will lose your rights to participate in the Sky Dragon Contest. As such, to eliminate someone else, you would have to steal the person’s jade pendant or kill the person. Of course, for safety, if you meet an opponent that you cannot battle against, you may destroy the jade pendant yourself and leave Kunyun Small world immediately to prevent being killed.”
Once Xu Wushen finished explaining the rules, he raised his voice and asked, “Does everyone understand the rules?”
“Understood!” Everyone replied.
The rules were simple. The contestants would have to try their best to remain in Kunyun Small World as long as they could. The one who could last till the end would be the winner.
Anyone who wanted to attain their goals quickly could attack others, steal their jade pendants or kill them.
As for weak ones, they could directly hand over their pendants or destroy them if they met a strong expert who they could not fight against, thus giving up their rights to participate in the contest.
Of course, anyone who was afraid of being attacked by others could hide himself. If his luck was good, he might even be able to last till the end.
Granted, the likelihood of succeeding with this method was incredibly low. Even if one was able to hide himself carefully, others could locate him through the jade pendant.
However, what made everyone disgruntled was that the jade pendant could only sense enemies within a 10 kilometer radius around them. This distance was too small.
After all, all of them were highly-ranked martial artists and their spiritual senses could sense others in a 50-60 kilometer radius around them.
Su Mo narrowed his eyes as adrenaline rushed through his heart. This method of contest was much more interesting compared to an arena battle.
No wonder the king said that they could team up with each other. Under such rules, the earlier stages of the contest would definitely have a lot of teams emerging.
Right at that moment, a smile crept onto Xu Wushen’s face as he said, “This is a hunt. You may become hunter or prey. As such, I have an interesting piece of news for all of you!”
Bewilderment filled the crowd but no one questioned Xu Wushen and patiently waited for his explanation.
The smile on Xu Wushen’s face grew even wider and he grinned, “Once all of you are in Kunyun Small World, not only will you not have any of the treasured items you have with you, you will also not possess your own cultivation ranks.”
“What?” The crowd jumped in surprise. Aside from the geniuses of the major superpowers, other geniuses stared blankly at Xu Wushen.
It was logical for them to not be able to use any weapons they had. However, what did Xu Wushen mean by having their cultivation ranks wiped?
“Once you enter Kunyun Small World, your cultivation ranks will be suppressed to the Rank 1 Qi Cultivation Realm. Your mental strengths and physical bodies will also be suppressed. To recover your cultivation ranks, you may eliminate other talents. Every time you eliminate someone, your cultivation will increase by one rank, up to the point where you are a Martial Honorable. As for using weapons, you may steal from the inhabitants of Kunyun Small World. However, if you are killed by the inhabitants, Kunyun Small World will be your deathbed”
Xu Wushen grinned as he explained. He had thought of this new rule and finally obtained the agreement of all the superpowers after intense discussion.
On the other hand, everyone was gaping in surprise. Who had thought of this rule? This person really knew how to play a game.
Hiding under such a rule was impossible. That was because one cultivation rank would never recover if they didn’t defeat someone else. As such, they would definitely lose.
Numerous eyes sparkled, these men were not the strong ones in the crowd. Under normal circumstances, they would never be able to win the contest against the experts and top talents.
However, the change in rules favoured them and gave them a chance of attaining victory.
For instance, if they met Xue Juntian, Ju Shen and other top talents, they could only give up willingly in order to save their lives.
However, now that everyone was at the same rank, their powers could surpass Xue Juntian and Ju Shen etc as long as they recovered their cultivation ranks. As such, they could overcome the godly talents!
Many people were highly excited and their eyes glistened brightly. This Sky Dragon Contest would be highly interesting.
Elders from various tribes also had high expectations. The disciples under them would have the chance to win the contest.
Once they won the contest, they would be able to obtain the Ancient Dragon vein.
Su Mo remained calm. He understood the rules of the contest. It was a game of life.
As the king said, for him to win the contest, he would need strength, intelligence and luck.
“Is there anyone else who doesn’t understand the rules?” Xu Wushen asked in a loud voice.
No one replied to Xu Wushen as battle spirits surged into their bodies and they had high expectations for the contest to start. Numerous geniuses, who were initially not confident, became confident.
Xu Wushen smiled slightly once he saw the crowd’s reactions.
In an instant, an invisible seal enveloped the crowd and complicated ancient writings filled the sky. Xu Wushen pressed down hard with his hand and the seal immediately shot down onto the lake.
Before the seal entered the lake and before it even touched the water surface, it merged into the empty air.
Boom boom boom!!
Explosive sounds erupted from the water surface and the empty space jerked to slowly reveal a space pavement a few dozen feet wide.
“The Sky Dragon Contest will officially begin now!”
Right as the space pavement formed, Xu Wushen yelled in a loud voice and he announced the beginning of the highly revered contest in Ancientspirit Galaxy.
Shoosh! Shoosh! Shoosh!!
In the blink of an eye, bodies jerked and the geniuses dashed towards the spCe pavement hurriedly.
In a single breath of time, all 6,000 geniuses had entered the space pavement.
Su Mo was not any slower than the others, but before he had entered the space pavement, he felt a surge of killing intent envelope his body. More than 10 pairs of murderous eyes glared at him.
