“To Obtain the Demonic Sword, One Must First Enter the Way of Killing!”
It was not difficult to understand this statement. One had to enter the way of killing in order to obtain the demonic sword!
“What is the way of killing, and how does one enter it?” A seed of doubt crept into Su Mo’s mind.
He looked toward the pitch-black Devil Gate and took a deep breath. He was very tempted at the thought of the Demonic Sword.
However, he was also instinctively disgusted at the thought of it.
This sword was too evil; it was terrifying!
Su Mo knew his own limits. He knew without a doubt that he would have difficulty controlling this sword.
But since the demonic sword had revealed itself, he was reluctant to leave.
“Qingxuan, Li Feng, inside the gate will be fraught with danger. We must proceed with caution when we enter!” Su Mo cautioned his friends gravely.
He had decided to enter the gate. If he encountered any danger within, he would flee at the first instance and forgo the demonic sword.
“Sure!” They both nodded.
“Let’s go!” He said. They followed the stream of people and entered the gate.
The next moment, Su Mo saw that his surroundings had changed. He had appeared in a dark realm.
It was extremely dark and filled with a dense Devilish Qi that transformed the entire realm into a Devilish Land.
He stepped on the ground and looked up. His eyes immediately widened as he spotted a pitch-black 30,000 meter high peak in the distance.
This mountain stood straight and tall, pointing up toward the sky.
Upon closer examination, he realized that this was no mountain peak; it was a sword, a treasure sword full of billowing Devilish Qi.
“It’s the Billion Demonic Sword!”
“My god! The Billion Demonic Sword is really here!”
“What a powerful, terrifying sword!”
Many people exclaimed at the sight of it.
Su Mo turned and saw that several hundred thousand martial artists had already gathered here, and still more were pouring in through the portal.
These people were not all from Sky Devil City. There were many people from various other lands.
They formed a huge circle, surrounding the Billion Demonic Sword.
Everyone stared at it with wide, greedy eyes.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Several people shot up into the sky and rushed toward the Billion Demonic Sword.
Flop! Flop! Flop!
The sound of people falling to the ground sounded. Those who had rushed out first started to fall from the sky.
“What’s going on?”
“Why have I lost my ability to fly?”
“My cultivation is…only Lv 1 Qi Cultivation Realm?”
Exclamations rang from the crowd as everyone checked their cultivations in shock.
They realized that everyone was now at Lv 1 Qi Cultivation Realm. Even the experts who had been at the Martial King Realm were not spared.
“What’s going on?” Su Mo frowned. He looked into his own elixir field and discovered that he was also at Lv 1 Qi Cultivation Realm.
For a martial artist this was the lowest level of cultivation possible!
Su Mo continued to probe at his body and noticed that his nine Spiritual Spirals seemed to be sealed and were completely silent. He was not able to activate them at all.
Only a feeble trace of genuine Qi could be detected from his elixir field. This was indeed the sign of Lv 1 Qi Cultivation Realm.
Not only that, but his physical strength had also been restricted. He could only display the strength of a Lv 1 Qi Cultivation Realm martial artist.
“Qingxuan, Li Feng, what about you?” Su Mo turned to look at his friends.
“Brother Su Mo, I am only at Lv 1 Qi Cultivation Realm now too!” Hong Qingxuan said.
“My physical strength has been restricted too. I am only able to display the strength of a Lv 1 Qi Cultivation Realm martial artist!” Li Feng said.
Su Mo sighed. Now that his cultivation had been restricted, he had no advantage when it came to competing for the Billion Demonic Sword.
Now that everyone had the same cultivation, it might not have been a bad thing for them to all start off the same way.
At the very least, the numerous Martial King experts would have no advantage. Everyone would have to compete based on their personal abilities.
While Su Mo was trying to figure it out, many had already started to sprint toward the Demonic Sword.
Now that they all had the same cultivation, whoever got there first would get the Billion Demonic Sword.
Thousands of people sprinting together was quite a sight to behold.
A mass of people surged together, forming a pitch-black crowd that moved rapidly toward the Sword.
Su Mo continued to stand where he was, his mind not clouded by greed. There was something weird about this place! Something was very strange!
It should not have been this easy to obtain the Demonic Sword. He chose not to act rashly.
When they saw Su Mo was not moving Li Feng and Hong Qingxuan did not move either. They stood by Su Mo’s side and quietly observed their surroundings.
There were so many people rushing toward the demonic sword, it was inevitable that fights would break out.
“Darn! Get lost!”
A fierce, burly man slashed the person in front of him in half with his saber.
Fresh red blood splattered on his burly face. He stopped in his tracks!
Then, he started to laugh heartily.
He laughed and laughed. His eyes were filled with killing desire.
“Kill!” he shouted angrily.
The man picked up his saber and started to hack at the people in front of him. Saber radiance flashed as blood splattered everywhere.
In a matter of seconds, he had killed several people.
Everyone stared in shock at the sight in front of them. They could not understand what was wrong with him.
They stared wide-eyed at the man.
His cultivation had started to soar. In a short time, he had reached Lv 4 Qi Cultivation Realm!
“Killing others can restore your cultivation?”
“How is that possible?”
Everyone was shocked and dazed.
Not long after, the crowd was filled with killing desire.
Cries rose from the crowd as they started attacking each other like crazy.
Killing others could restore your cultivation?
Everyone began to kill without hesitation.
Whoever killed the most would be able to regain their cultivation in the shortest amount of time. As their cultivation increased, so would their chances of obtaining the Demonic Sword.
Hundreds of thousands of people started to kill ruthlessly. Blood flowed like a river, and dismembered limbs flew in the air.
This place had turned into hell!
Su Mo’s eyes lit up as comprehension dawned.
To Obtain the Demonic Sword, One Must First Enter the Way of Killing!
This meant that one would need to kill ruthlessly. Only by killing everyone and becoming invincible would he obtain the Billion Demonic Sword.
This rule was extremely cruel and violent!
