Book 10, Entering the Immortal Estate, Chapter 20 – The Final Palace

Youngflame Nong gave the group of Wanxiang Adepts a look. He mused to himself, “Perhaps they aren’t in the Dao Repository Palace…or perhaps one of them has them. Still, Immortal Witchriver was merely a Diremonster Immortal; his roots weren’t that deep. Even if he had some divine abilities or techniques, the Youngflame clan probably has them as well. And they are still very useful to me…”

“Everyone, since we have finished our investigations, then let us head to the final palace,” Youngflame Nong said.

“Right.”

Ning and the others immediately began to grow nervous.

“Let’s go!” Youngflame Nong took out yet another magic treasure, a flying weaver’s shuttle. The flying shuttle expanded to thirty meters long and ten meters wide. Ning and the others entered it, which was quite roomy.

Swish! The flying shuttle immediately exited the Dao Repository Palace. As they emerged, the Fiendgod Xiangliu Fang was already waiting for them.

“Young master.” Xiangliu Fang transformed into a streak of light, flying towards the shuttle

Youngflame Nong smiled and nodded towards Xiangliu Fang, seeming somewhat relaxed. But then, he turned his head to stare at the final golden Skypillar of light, and the many monstrous Dao-soldiers guarding it. He snorted coldly, “These monstrous Dao-soldiers have blocked me repeatedly. After I bind this Immortal estate, I am definitely going to repay them for their actions!”

“How could the monsters of a puny little Immortal estate possibly withstand the Youngflame clan?” Xiangliu Fang laughed as well, and Youngflame Nong nodded.

Ning and the others were secretly surprised…why was it that Youngflame Nong didn’t seem to be the slightest bit worried?

“So many monstrous Dao-soldiers…” Ning mused to himself, “The Seawave Dao-soldiers and the Yaksha Dao-soldiers are all far more powerful than ordinary Loose Immortals; even Xiangliu Fang was dominated. What sort of treasure does this Youngflame Nong have?”

“Senior apprentice-brother, he seems quite confident,” Northson said with a smirk.

“Let’s watch and see,” Ning sent back.

As the flying shuttle continued to fly forward, constantly advancing towards that distant golden Skypillar of light and the Seawave Dao-soldiers and the Yaksha Dao-soldier formations surrounding it. They were now quite close.

“Humans!” A deep voice shook the heavens.

Youngflame Nong just laughed icily, while next to him, Xiangliu Fang spoke out on his behalf. “What is it?”

“Actually, there is no need for you to fight with us, the monstrous races of the Immortal estate world. So long as you are willing to open up a corridor out with your key and let us leave to the world of the Grand Xia Empire, then we are willing to permit you to enter this final palace,” the deep voice said. Immortal Duohe and Immortal Witchsui both felt that, given these humans still dared to advance in the face of so many monstrous Dao-soldiers, that they probably felt confident in passing through them. Thus, Immortal Duohe and Imimortal Witchsui quickly came to the decision of negotiating with these humans.

“Let you leave? That’s not impossible.” Youngflame Nong revealed a smile. “But I have a requirement.”

“Oh? Speak. What requirement.” The deep voice echoed forth once more.

“Simple. Hand over all of your Dao-armors, and I’ll let you leave.” Youngflame Nong’s voice also echoed out in the skies.

“All of our Dao-armors?”

“Impossible.”

“Kill this human.”

“In his dreams!”

All sorts of ferocious howls rang out.

These Dao-armors had been left behind by Immortal Witchriver, and were the reason why these monsters were so powerful.

“Without the Dao-armors, we would be like a pile of loose sand; we wouldn’t even be able to defeat that Fiendgod by your side. In fact, we’d probably be beaten by him instead,” the deep voice thundered angrily.

“I can swear an oath to the Dao of the Heavens that if you are willing to hand over all of your Dao-armors, that I will let you leave and will not pursue or kill you,” Youngflame Nong said.

The Dao-armors interested Youngflame Nong the most; if he could obtain them easily, then he wouldn’t mind letting the wielders of them leave.

“Impossible!” The deep voice bellowed angrily.

“Then don’t blame me for this,” Youngflame Nong shook his head.

“You are forcing us!” The deep voice snarled.

“Right. So what if I am?” Youngflame Nong snickered.

These powerful monsters were bloodthirsty to begin with. Given how excessive Youngflame Nong had behaved, they were now truly angered.

“Kill.”

“Kill.”

“Kill.”

An enormous, sky-filling wave arose, blotting out the heavens and smashing down towards the flying shuttle which Ning and Youngflame Nong were riding. The flying shuttle, however, went directly towards the giant wave with incredible agility.

“This is the moment.” A long time ago, Youngflame Nong had produced a queer-looking disc in his hand, which was a mixture of black and white in color.

“POLARIS STARSHIFTER!”

Youngflame Nong let out an angry roar.

Rumble…

This black and white bi-colored disc floated into the air. A ray of black light enveloped the entire flying shuttle, while a ray of white light shot directly towards part of the distant Yaksha Dao-soldiers.

Whoosh!

Space instantly distorted.

That portion of the distant Yaksha Dao-soldiers instantly disappeared, then appeared in the location where the shuttle had been. As for the flying shuttle, it appeared in the location where those Yaksha Dao-soldiers had been.

“Open.” As soon as the shuttle appeared, a corridor into the palace appeared. Swoosh! The long shuttle flew directly into the tunnel, and then the gate shut behind it.

“This…”

Immortal Duohe and Immortal Witchsui were completely stunned. All of the Dao-soldiers were stunned. Then stared stupidly at the bi-colored black and white disc. As the energies of the disc were used up, it silently, soundlessly shattered.

“They entered?”

“They entered, just like that?” Immortal Duohe and Immortal Witchsui, as well as all the other monsters, had looks of disbelief, anger, and despair in their eyes.

“It shouldn’t have been like this. It shouldn’t have…” Immortal Duohe’s eyes were filled with boundless rage. Raising his head, he let out an earth-rending, pained, agonized roar.

They had lost. Utterly lost.

If this had been an actual battle, teleporting away a small part of their Dao-soldiers would have only been a minor matter. But this wasn’t an actual battle; the enemy, upon teleporting those soldiers away, had immediately been able to enter the final palace.

“After this, the Immortal estate will be bound. After this, all of us will be under his control.” Immortal Witchsui was mumbling to himself.

In this moment, the countless monstrous Dao-soldiers were all howling in anger, grief, and despair…

……

Swoosh.

A long shuttle appeared within the hall, with Youngflame Nong, Xiangliu Fang, Ji Ning, and the others within it. They all emerged from within.

“Hahaha.” Youngflame Nong, upon entering, began to laugh joyfully. “We’ve finally arrived at the final palace. Mmm, and it is quite beautiful as well, far more so than those other four palaces.”

Ning and the others were still feeling shocked by what had happened with that bi-colored disc. It had actually caused them to completely swap positions with the distant enemy Dao-soldiers. What treasure was that? Ning, at least, had never even heard of such a treasure.

“It really is much more beautiful. Every single pillar is exquisitely, intricately carved,” Xue Hongyi said quickly.

“The final palace. After binding it, the entire Immortal estate will be under my control, and the trial the clan gave me will have been concluded. I’ll have earned an Immortal estate as well.” Youngflame Nong was quite delighted, but then he let out a sigh. “What a pity, though…after entering this Immortal estate, I lost two of my three most powerful treasures.”

“Treasures are meant to be used. After you master the Immortal estate, you’ll acquire even better treasures, young master,” Xiangliu Fang said.

“I hope so.” Youngflame Nong still felt a bit of pain in his heart. The ‘Lock’ scroll and the Polaris Starshifter disc were two of the most powerful magic treasures he had on him. These were treasures which even many Loose Immortals didn’t have access to; even if one had large amounts of liquefied elemental essence, it would be difficult to purchase them. After all, they were simply too rare. Youngflame Nong had only managed to acquire them after many years of collecting resources. Still, for the sake of solidifying his status as the next Godplume Duke, he had no other choices.

“Acquiring the Immortal estate will mean that I’ll have recouped my costs, and earned a little on top of it. Those monsters…hmph. They should make their preparations for all of their descendants to forever be slaves.” A cold light flashed through Youngflame Nong’s eyes. “And that Xue Hongyi…I need to acquire his Immortal-ranked magic treasure as well.”

46 thoughts on “DE Book 10 Chapter 20” - NO SPOILERS

      1. I feel for all the monsters, like they’re minding their own business and now they face calamity and annihilation. just doesn’t sit right with me

          1. If another species comes and invades your home, hoping to take it over as well as all the legacies and treasures belonging to your ancestor(s), wouldn’t you fight them if you could?

    1. Why so much hate for Ninelotus and constant comparison to Alice? Because she rather manipulative, controlling and her emphasis on social class?
      However, I doubt she will crumble under Youngflame’s pressures easily, given her family background and her pride beside that her Dao’s Heart is rather strong.
      Comparing Ninelotus to Alice is rather unfair, Alice started out as damsel-in-distress, coy and always needed protection then she accepted marriage to a jerk behind Linley, while although Ninelotus isn’t as strong as Ji Ning, she can protect herself and more importantly, Ninelotus was given a chance to make a clean break with Ji Ning when pressured by her clan, she manage to breakthrough the formation and choose Ji Ning.
      I blamed IET for making Delia and Li’er much too perfect, the ultimate beauty and virtue rolled into one.

      1. I agree. I think Ninelotus is a smart woman who means well, its just that her social upbringing makes her see things in a more pragmatic, hence somewhat ruthless, way. Truthfully, Ji Ning’s way of ruling a clan will not allow it to rise very high. Ji Ning prefers to remain separate, allowing him to mentor selective individuals, while Ninelotus has been raised to take care of all of her clan, no matter what has to be done. Even though people may be disgusted with her take on people’s motives and actions, they are accurate and the unfortunate truth of this world. For goodness sake, she already knows that Youngflame plans to off them all after he’s used them. Did Ji Ning see through that? Nope! Do you think that she, with her pride, would go with someone planning on killing them all? In addition, remember how her clan’s patriarch said that even the kingdom’s royal bloodline would not help their clan to improve? Ninelotus agreed with him. Plus she has consistently made efforts to stay with Ji Ning, while he has not. I don’t think there are any “true colors” to be seen. She is being honest and forthwith with Ning, even if most readers want to assume otherwise. And this constant assumption that a strong willed, non MC worshipping girl must be an immoral & loose woman, is really upsetting & concerning. She has refused ALL people up to now, why should she change?

        1. Ji Ning knows he is not fit to lead a clan. That is why he has not usurped the clan leaders position. I don’t know if Ninelotus will work out for him. If it doesn’t it will be due to both of them being young and inexperienced. Personally I want to see more of the Rainbowflame Fairy. She seems like a similar type to him and capable of making him get off his lazy bum. A good influence on him.

        2. Well, the difference in mentality between the 2 can be easily explained.
          – Ji Ning will never be the leader of his clan. He doesn’t have any leader skill, and is only a genius when it come to cultivation and combat. He will always assist is clan, but only with is strength (gifting them resources and techniques, fighting when needed). So he doesn’t have to act like a leader, and believe strength is everything.
          – Ninelotus is different, not only is she the next leader of her clan, but her clan is also enormous. So she has been raised to rule, but doesn’t have the same belief than Ji Ning when it comes to strength. Ji Ning voice is like a law in his clan when he is just a Wangtia Adept, Ninelotus is not even sure to have the same power on her clan if she reach the Celestial level, so she has to use more diplomacy since she always have Elders opinion in mind.

    2. I got three taels of liquefied essence on that Ninelotus is gonna end up on her knees between Youngflame’s legs sucking on that Nong before end of the volume.

    1. I hope they get out to. This world is really nasty with how they enslave these diremonsters and primordial fiendgods. I hope Ning doesn’t follow the custom and helps the monsters out. They might help him get rid of Youngflame and his bodyguard. Plus, then he can have two immortal palaces! 🙂

  1. thought all the zifu disciples died, also if nong was just going to use all of his treasures why even bring all those people. So far ning and his group has been pretty useless. They just loot all the good treasures. The golem thing could have been avoided if a treasure was used in the first place too. So his fiendgod could have taken care of all troubles inside the treasure vault.

    Lastly that shifting polaris treasure seems so uselesss in all other circumstances. Like I can only think it might be useful if there was a 2 on one battle, and he could cause one person to kill another. But in general specific circumstances treasure seems to be worth the least not the most. If anyone plays any TCGs you can easily compare it to a rare specific circumstances card. No one uses those in decent decks.

    1. Don’t forget that with his status, this idiot is probably never alone. So during a fight, he probably always have someone to use it, as, for example, his fiendgod bodyguard to gain some distance for himself and put his bodyguard close to the enemy.

  2. Ah and so Youngflame is showing his true colors. Though Xingyue did offer the lamp to him so i’m just scratching my head at this point.

    Thanks for the chapter.
